Flamini in bed with Taylor Swift (and others)

Last month it emerged that Mathieu Flamini was more than a pointy midfielder. In fact, he was an investor in a company which might just save the world.

GF Biomedical is the first in the world to mass produce Levulinic Acid; a substance that can apparently replace oil in all its forms. Soon, the world will be a cleaner, more environmentally friendly place, and Flamini will control 98% of the wealth.

Being brutally honest, we reckon he’s going to become some kind of power-mad despot, but in the meantime he’s been nominated for an award by NME.

In their very first ‘People of the year’ awards, he’s been put up against the likes of Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Noel Gallagher, JJ Abrams and … er … The Libertines, with the editor of the magazine saying, “The selection process was fraught and heated, and involved a series of intense meetings that would make the papal election procedure look snappy.

“But we got there in the end, and the 12 people on the list are all influential and inspiring modern day heroes.”

The full list can be found here.

Flamini has won Serie A with AC Milan, and some FA Cups with Arsenal, but a prestigious gong from the New Musical Express would certainly be the highlight of his career so far.

Weird, could understand if he was in music that he should be on the NME list.

Surely there must be an Arsenal fan(s) on the committee – the promise of his business won’t happen for several years and there must be others that have done big stuff this year outside music.

But great for him and look forward to him putting some money back into the club.


Putting an Arsenal player into the list is sound commercial sense for the NME if they are going to conduct an online poll to determine the winner.

We never lose online polls, so they are guaranteed to have millions of Arsenal fans visiting their site.

To say that Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Noel Gallagher, JJ Abrams and The Libertines are “modern day heroes” is a sad indictment of our generation.

Flamster, on the other hand….


If I could “double thumbs up” your post I would mate.

Fucking hell though what a pack of cunts he’s up against!!!


damn…i was expecting something juicy when i saw the headline

I love the Flam as much as the next Gooner, but having seen Star Wars twice now, with many more viewings to come, JJ Abrams would have my vote 😉


How do you people even know Taylor Swift lyrics SMH


This attention grabbing headline is all rather tabloid newspaper for the masses. I came here expecting news worthy of a gentleman.


Now all we need to do now is to get Flamini to do some proper defending.

Mark Hughes

Just went through the whole NME 2016 voting system… He’s not on there and now I’m very disappointed.
