Arsenal Bring Sexy Back & Napoli Fans Riot, Chelsea Win & Greenpeace Drops a Banner, Balotelli Crap Penalty, U.S. Open Cup

Napoli fans show their class at the Emirates

Come on. What's wrong with Gazprom?
There's not really any place else to begin this morning other than at Arsenal. The Gunners turned what was supposed to be the clash of the day into a one-sided affair with a display of sublime skill that effectively killed off the match before many of us could got settled in prime viewing mode. Barney Ronay was at the Emirates and Michael Cox has five reasons why Mesut Özil is such a special talent. Prior to the match, some traveling Neapolitans showed their class by attacking Piebury Corner. That ain't right.

Elsewhere, Chelsea won their must win match in Romania with ease (but Torres was hurt), Fabregas scored the goal that allowed Barcelona to beat 10-man Celtic, controversy in Amsterdam as Ajax and Milan drew 1-1 (Balotelli Bullshit Penalty), and Atletico Madrid continued their fine form with a win at Porto. Here's a wrap. And another. And one more. Hah!

In case yesterday wasn't enough for you football-loving fools, today we've got David Moyes and his very hot seat in Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk (Jonathan Wilson says watch out!), San Pellegrino vs. Pep in Manchester, and Copenhagen in Madrid to face a Gareth Bale-Less Real. Here is today's preview.

Did you know that the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final was last night? The 100th final? Neither did we. D.C. United won the thing by upsetting Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto. Here are some thoughts on the matter.

Let's stay Stateside and take a look at the USMNT's Hot List. Hot? Aron Johannsson. Not? Michael Bradley.
