Atrocious Arsenal, Shitty City, Mundane Madrid, Unimaginative Milan

Copa America is coming to the United States! 2016 will see the best of South America grace our shores. Jeff Carlisle talks about it.

Champions League? OK.

We took in the Arsenal/Schalke encounter. More like Norwich/Arsenal Part II. Another simply horrid performance from the Gunners. Andre Santos, what were you thinking? And why wasn't anything done when the problem was there for all to see?

John Brewin, Richard Williams, Raphael HonigsteinJeremy WilsonAmy Lawrence, Phil McNulty, and Kevin McCarra all have something to say about it. Oh, and is the club being ruined?    And Wenger says sorry.

Manchester City also lost at Ajax. Bit of a surprise there as Ajax are certainly not on the par of Schalke or Dortmund. It means it will be very difficult indeed for City to advance to the knockout stage. Henry Winter was in Amsterdam to see it all go down.

Elsewhere, Milan continued their horrid season with a loss at Malaga. And Ronaldo scored (shocking!) but Madrid failed to win at Dortmund, with the German champs winning 2-1. The Bundesliga is stronger than it's been in a while, there's no doubt. And the leading clubs are playing some attractive football. Hats off.

Here's a CL wrap. Here's a look at the tables.

What else is going on? That's really about it. The Europa League is operational today so the likes of Liverpool, Inter Milan, Tottenham, Lazio, Newcastle, and Napoli are in action. If you really care about any of that, we're sure you can track something down.
