Champions League, Jack Warner Banned, Scribes, 11 Scandals Involving John Terry

Buh bye.

Gosh. Hump Day already. Where else to begin but with Jack Warner? He's been banned. Yay! Good riddance.

On the pitch, Everton produced a stunning comeback against West Brom yesterday. Andy Hunter was at the Hawthorns and filed this report.

More matches today! It's the Champions League! Barcelona begin their non-Messi life, The Special One returns to Porto, Arsenal host The Greeks, and Zagreb go to Munich. Here's your lot:

Barcelona vs. Bayer Leverkusen: Preview
Porto vs. Chelsea: Preview
Arsenal vs. Olympiacos: Preview

Woof! Former United defender Paul Parker is having quite the go at his old side, and the Premier League in general. Good stuff!

And now it's time for...11 Scandals Involving John Terry.

Scribe Time! Do it:

Where? Germany. Who? Raphael Honigstein. What? High-pressing Bayer Leverkusen have sights set on Barça

Where? Germany. Who? Uli Hesse. What? Monchengladbach seek glory again

Where? South America. Who? Tim Vickery. What? Messi injury blow opens door for Tevez

Where? Italy. Who? Paolo Bandini. What? Hunchback of Fiorentina instils judgement as much as luck

Where? Germany. Who? Dominic Fifield. Really? Yes. OK. What? English teenager Mandela Egbo savours life at Borussia Mönchengladbach

It's Tuesday, and that also means Marcotti's Musings. This week, Gab is gabbing that Barca can't afford any more injuries, Man United's tests, Inter loss not a blip.

Podcast!! Manchester United breezed past Sunderland to take their place at the top of the table for the first time in two years. That's because Manchester City lost their third game in a row, this time a shambolic 4-1 defeat at Tottenham. Will resurgent Borussia Mönchengladbach make it four in a row for Manuel Pellegrini's charges when they meet in the Champions League on Tuesday night? Elsewhere in the Premier League, Arsenal finally scored some goals in their impressive 5-2 win at Leicester, Brendan Rodgers lived to fight another day as Liverpool beat Aston Villa, and Newcastle really should have beaten Chelsea. Well, it is the Best League in the World. Finally, we pay visits to Scotland - sorry Aberdeen, we'll never speak of you again - and the Championship, where Brighton are flying high.

And finally...Barry Glendenning wishes to salute football's one-club men.
