We caught up Arsenal and England Legend Paul Merson at Rileys Bristol, at the launch of the club's new Football Fanzone which features a monster three metre Samsung HD screen and 3D screens. Merse let us in on the latest with him and how he took his love of darts a little too far.
1. What's next for Paul Merson?
Hopefully, I'll keep working at Sky's Soccer Saturday for as long as possible. When I was playing football, I had the best job in the world. Now I have the second best. I love the show and have the best laugh every week. Jeff, Matt, Thommo, Charlie and Alan are an amazing bunch of lads to work with.
2. Do you prepare your gags, like "he's like a fish up a tree" and "he's hit the beans on toast" - or do they come naturally?
They just come out. I just say whatever is in my head first - maybe that's my problem! I said "he's like a fish up a tree" because the player just looked lost. I think my best jokes are "hit the beans on toast" for hit the post and "Desmond" for a 2-2 draw.
I'm waiting for Jeff to ask me how a certain player is playing, so I can say "Shergar. [what's that?] - he's gone missing."
3. Are you tempted to return to management?
No, I don't think anyone would want me anyway. I'm focused on my media career.
4. Is it difficult for young English managers at the moment?
It's extraordinary. It takes a lot of time and money to get your coaching badges and then clubs pick foreign managers. It's mindblowing. I think the Blackburn job came a bit too early for Paul Ince, but I've no doubt he'll still make a top manager.
5. Who should be the next England manager?
Harry Redknapp. No question. He loves English football and he's good with the press - which you need to be. For me, if you are England, you should have an English manager and if you are Albania, you have an Albanian in charge.
6. What do you think of Arsenal's current crop of England youngsters?
I'm excited by Kieran Gibbs, I thought he was outstanding on his England debut. Jack Wilshere is another top drawer player and the world is his oyster.
I think Theo Walcott is still improving. He's been fastracked so far in his career. He was playing for Southampton at 16 and then Sven took him to the Germany World Cup . Not going to the World Cup in South Africa  is a good thing for him and he'll become a better player because of that.
Arsenal is a great club for these boys to play at and Arsène Wenger is a great manager for young players. He looks after them and gives youngsters a chance to prove themselves and to achieve.
7. Who is the best manager you have worked with?
George Graham. Because we won so many trophies under him and we might not have done without him.
8. Who is the best player you played alongside?
Dennis Bergkamp by a million miles. I did not know a professional footballer could be that good.
9. Who is the best player you faced?
Paolo Maldini for AC Milan. He's a different class.
10. What do you think of Rileys Football Fanzones?
The Fanzone is great place to watch football and other sports. You've got a huge telly and Sky 3D is phenomenal. I love to watch football in a packed bar - you get a great atmosphere and it shows that football is more popular than ever. Plus you can have a game of pool or darts at half time!
11. Are you any good with a cue?
I used to play a lot of snooker and pool when I was playing football. I would often go to the snooker hall with the lads after training. I'm not the greatest player but I enjoy it, my highest break is 27.
12. How's your darts?
When I was manager at Walsall, we made space in the weights room for a table tennis table and darts board. We played so much that we were better at darts than football.
I'm not the best darts player in the world, but I checked out 160 once.
It's good to see darts becoming more and more popular. The coverage on Sky is excellent and Phil Taylor is phenomenal. To hit two nine-darters is just unbelievable. He's a fifteen-time world champion too - and there are no other sports you could dominate like that.
