Rooney's Motorcycle, Arsenal and Bayern, Milan and Barca, Fiorentina's Jovetic, Best Stadium in Europe?

Off we go with the Champions League where Bayern Munich had little trouble brushing aside an inept and grossly inferior Arsenal side at the Emirates. Gabby Marcotti reckons Bayern are the only team good enough to possibly knock Barcelona off their perch. We're not sure about that, but they are pretty damn strong. Not that Arsenal offered much resistance. Mertesacker and Cazorla in particular had nights to forget. The German press certainly loved the result. How about some reports?

In the day's other match, Porto defeated Malaga 1-0.

AC Milan play today, know...
Right. So, today we've got AC Milan vs. Barcelona. Not too shabby. Here's a preview. Here's another. Barcelona's manager is still in NYC getting treatment after his recent throat cancer operation, but Andy West explains that they are in good hands regardless. And look at this: every single Eurosport dude in Europe thinks Barcelona will advance. Way to go out on a limb, guys.

As has been the rule this year in the Champions League, the other match of the day isn't so hot. It's Galatasaray vs. Schalke. Drogba will play, we think. So, that's interesting.

Fiorentina. La Viola. They've got a hell of a player in one Stevan Jovetic. He's from Montenegro, which is a beautiful country, we're told. Beaches like Croatia but cheaper and less touristy. But, we digress. Michael Cox wants to talk Jovetic Tactics.

We all know Wayne Rooney has class, right? HAH! Sorry. Hmmm. Yeah, so the fake-haired one has designed a motorcycle and thanks to his personal touch the value of the bike dropped by £15,000. 

Let's finish with a discussion on The Greatest Stadium in Europe. Craven Cottage makes the list! San Siro? Bernabeu? Camp Nou? Cast your vote.
