Where were you when you first saw Arsenal’s latest recruit 11-year-old Charlie Patino? The Gunners have just handed Luton Town £10,000 in compensation for the ‘wonderkid’, as they must always be called by law.

The story goes that Manchester City tried to tempt the lad to their northern pastures but Master Patino declined – he lives in St Albans and the M1 school-run could be a bit of a bugger.
