Arsenal Top Spurs Thanks to Flamini Brace, Celta Vigo Brutalize Barcelona, Liverpool Edge Carlisle on Penalties, Frosinone Hold Juventus, Livorno Serie A Alternative Club Guide

That ain't right...

Don't you love weeks like this? The matches come Fast and Furious and the action is fantastic. We had another thriller at White Hart Lane, a shock to the system for Barcelona, and a first-ever point in Serie A for Frosinone. Against the champions, no less. Let's get going, beginning in England, where the pressure is mounting on Brendan Rodgers...

Tottenham 1 - 2 Arsenal: David Hytner at White Hart Lane
Tottenham 1 - 2 Arsenal: Sachin Nakrani at White Hart Lane
Tottenham 1 - 2 Arsenal: Flamini's Winner
Liverpool 1 - 1 Carlisle United (3 - 2 Pens): Andy Hunter at Anfield
Newcastle 0 - 1 Sheffield Wednesday: Michael Walker at St. James' Park

As mentioned, big results in Spain, where the tricky trip to Vigo proved just that for Barcelona. They lost 4 - 1. Ouch! Meanwhile, Real Madrid toughed it out in Bilbao to go top of the table. Here's a review of yesterday's fun.

Stadio Armando Picchi, Livorno, Italia

There were games in Italy, too. Thankfully, ace Serie A Scribe Paolo Bandini is on hand with a wrap of the excellent mid-week fare from The Boot. Woo Hoo! Sticking with Italy, we've got another Serie A Alternative Guide. We love these things. This time it's...Livorno.

And here's a mid-week roundup for both Serie A and La Liga.

Oh, dear...
The 1995-1996 Premier League season was a big one for The Editor. The opportunity to watch loads of matches was a glorious (and lucky) thing. Glorious, too, was the Newcastle side from that season. Martin Hardy looks back at the 1995 Newcastle entertainers.

Ooooo! In light of Lewandowski's antics on Tuesday, Jonathan Wilson has his five most dominant performances of all time.

See you on Friday!
