What is a blue moon and who is Sheik Yermoney?

A blue moon arises when a full moon appears twice in one month. It is rather dull really. There are just about 13 full moons in a year and only 12 months, so logically one month is going to get a second one in one month if one sees what one is saying.

Calling it […]

Wenger: the nutty professor who should leave now? Or is it some fans who are bonkers?

What question should I ask Mr Wenger on saturday?
