Moyes Takes Over at Real Sociedad, Scribes, Seattle Advances

Well, hello there. Welcome to Tuesday. Moe Szyslak David Moyes has taken over at Real Sociedad. How did the La Liga club get him? Does he have what it takes? Can he succeed in San Sebastián? There's only one man to give us the proper 411: Sid Lowe. Go.

Ebola! Morocco freaked out and said it wouldn't host the African Cup of Nations. Now, Morocco won't be involved at all. Good.

This looks lovely: From José Fonte to Mame Biram Diouf: 10 Unsung Premier League Heroes. Smashing. On that same page, Barney Rooney looks at how Southampton, West Ham, Swansea, and Stoke have been successful this season.

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to scribe. Hit it:

Where? Italy. Who? Jack Sargeant. What? El Shaarawy is finally getting back to his best

Where? France. Who? Julien Laurens. What? France's great expectations weigh heavy on Karim Benzema

Where? Germany. Again? Yes. OK. Who? Raphael Honigstein. What? Could Christoph Kramer’s freak own goal be the lift that Dortmund need?

Lots of disfunction in North London at the moment. No, it's not the transport that's the problem. It's the area's two largest clubs. Today, we'll examine the issues facing Spurs.

Major League Soccer is heading for its finale. Are Henry and Donovan destined to clash for the championship? Landy has to get by Seattle first, mind, and Thierry needs his Red Bull to beat New England. Graham Parker examines how things look to be playing out.

Sticking with the US, let's ask this? Who is Hot? Who is Not? 

Podcast! On today's Football Weekly, AC Jimbo has Barry Glendenning, Philippe Auclair and John Ashdown for company to give the hot chat on all the goings on in the Premier League and beyond. We start at Anfield, where Chelsea swatted away Liverpool, and also benefitted from slip ups (again) from Manchester City and Arsenal. Can anyone stop Mou's Blues? Certainly not Spurs, but you knew that anyway. Next, we head to Europe, to get up to speed with the action in Ligue 1, Serie A and the Bundesliga. (We'll have an extra-long phone call with Sid Lowe on Thursday to find out what's happening in Spain). Finally, we pop down to the Championship, where it's tighter at the top than, well, this.

It is Tuesday and that means we get Gabriele Marcotti's Musings. This week Gab is gabbing about...PSG pick up more than a win vs. Marseille. Plus: more pain for Rodgers.

That's really about it, friends. Have a good one.
