Who is Paul Merson?  

Paul Merson is undoubtedly one of the most popular characters in football. Beginning his career at Arsenal in 1984 as an apprentice, Merson made his debut for the side in 1986. He played for the Gunners 423 times in total, scoring 99 goals in all competitions before moving to Middlesbrough for a record £5 million pound fee. His first taste of International football came in a friendly against Germany. Paul went on to play in the 1992 Euro Championship, 1994 World Cup and 1998 World Cup, accumulated 21 caps for his country, scoring on three occasions.

Following a brief spell as manager of Walsall, Merson began a career in the media as an analyst and pundit. His main job is on Sky Sports, where he is a match reporter and regular pundit for Gillette Soccer Saturday. Merson writes a weekly column for the Daily Star's 'Seriously Football' pullout every Saturday and predicts scores for the week's Premier League games called 'Merson Predicts'. He is a big fan of gambling as shown in "Harry's Heroes: The Full English", a 2019 ITV documentary.
