Mathieu Flamini Has Clearly Become The Whipping Boy After Arsenal Loss

Mathieu Flamini Has Clearly Become The Whipping Boy After Arsenal Loss
By Conor Neville

Simon Kuper has said that the way to make good decisions is to listen to the wisdom of crowds. One needs to canvas a wide variety of opinion.
