The Onion Bag: Arsenal's Booze-Up and Barcelona Inside Information

Ryan Bailey@ryanjaybaileyFeatured ColumnistDecember 12, 2013

Welcome to the Onion Bag, your guide to the latest weird and wonderful news from world football.

First, we head back to 1997 as Ray Parlour explains how Arsenal prepared for the double-winning season in 1997-98: plenty of cigarettes and alcohol.

Next, we stop by St. James' Park to see the latest public relations disaster Newcastle are bringing upon themselves—a plan to charge journalists to interview players.

And finally, we have some very interesting inside information, or "intel" if you will, from Barcelona.

Enjoy the show and send me a nice tweet about it if you are so inclined.
