Racism, like a cockroach, has a disappointing tendency not to die. It's bad enough with one case occurring but when two happen in a week, you'd better call the exterminators. Thankfully there are those willing to take a stand; for every imbecilic action there is an opposite reaction.

With Neymar going to Barcelona it brings some unanswered questions on just how manager Tito Vilanova will get the best out of Messi, Neymar, Iniesta, Pedro, Sanchez, Villa (if he is still there) and Tello, he can't play all of them... so what does he do?

As a Newcastle fan, I'm quite used to hearing ridiculous things - usually from our own supporters. But this one really tops the lot. Sports Direct News (yes that's actually a thing) has claimed that "low-level" talks have taken place between the Magpies and Wayne Rooney's agent, although an official offer is yet to be lodged. Go figure.

Mongols, Global Conquest and the Champions League

The other night, the light-bulb came on when I watched Real Madrid and then Barcelona being dismantled by German teams on successive evenings. The excitement was partly about the football itself, but mainly at the way two powerhouses of European football were swept away with barely a whimper. It was the same with the Mongols. The great empires of China and Persia went up in a puff of smoke, demolished without throwing a punch in self-defence.

Who knows what butterfly effect would have occurred had Koscielny and Szczesny not had that last minute moment to forget? Wenger will definitely have nightmares thinking about that as the 2010/2011 season was Arsenal's best chance of ending their trophy drought.

It says a lot about the duopoly in Spanish football that the three point gap between Barcelona and Atlético is rarely mentioned, but that might change if Simeone ends the derby curse and Atleti finally beat Real Madrid. Now, for once, they have a chance of doing so.

When Benzema is on form, there is no doubt that Madrid play better. Higuaín may have a superior goals-to-game ratio but the Frenchman offers much more and, if given a run of games, will no doubt follow it with a run of goals.

David Cameron Pleads for Cesc Fabregas to Stay at Arsenal

Nik Darlington | Posted 24.09.2011 | UK

David Cameron professes to be an Aston Villa fan but clearly for him in football as in politics, the national interest trumps tribal loyalties. Moreover, considering the dire state of the Spanish economy, the 40 million or so euros that Fabregas might cost Barcelona could probably best be put to use at home rather than being exported to Britain.
