Samir Nasri and Piers Morgan renew Twitter war

Arsenal's most outspoken fan and a Manchester City midfielder have been at it again on Twitter.

This time last year Piers Morgan put his foot in his mouth.

It was a quite monumental mistake; he attacked Samir Nasri - slagging him off for his move to Manchester City after Arsenal had beaten them 1-0 at the Emirates, a result which put them eight points behind United.

His constant catcalling wound up Nasri to the point that the pair settled on a bet. Morgan offered stakes of £10,000 that Arsenal would win a trophy before City did.

In the history of bad predictions, it has to be up there with the worst of all time.

One month later Nasri was a Premier League winner, celebrating as Manchester United uncharacteristically collapsed, and City applied the pressure to remarkably win the title on goal difference.

Arsenal meanwhile are now eight years without a trophy, and at this point few would bet against them making it a round 10 years without silverware

So talkshow host Piers Morgan was forced to humiliatingly pay up, but the money went to a good cause with the Great Ormond Street Hospital. Harmless fun eh.

But a year on, the Arsenal fan still cannot let sleeping dogs lie - still upset at Nasri walking out on Arsenal, taunting the player once again tonight after the Barcelona game, when the Frenchman made a comment on Twitter praising the Champions League semi-finalists.

It ended with Nasri telling Morgan to shut up, and Nasri being branded a mercenary again. Here is their exchange:

Isn't it time the CNN host simply walked away from all this and grew up a bit?
