Tevez, Aubameyang, Gervinho...Names of the Champions League Week 1 is a post from: Just Football
Names of the Champions League is a feature on Just Football looking at the key players that stood out after each round of the tournament. As the group stages kicked off around the continent, let's take a look at which players helped their sides get off to the perfect start:
Carlos Tevez (Juventus)
The Argentine striker has not enjoyed the Champions League throughout his career, scoring just eight times in Europe's top tier competition, with half of those goals coming in his first season at Manchester United in 2007/08.
The Pot 4 Club Everything you need to know about... AS Roma is a post from: Just Football
We all know everything about the major clubs that play Champions League football year-in, year-out, right? Pot 1 – with its Chelseas, Arsenals and Real Madrids – is old news. Pot 4 is where the fun's at.
Roma 2-0 Fiorentina Match Analysis is a post from: Just Football
Hope often springs eternal in late August – with clubs and their supporters emboldened by the happenings of the summer transfer window. And for Serie A sides AS Roma and ACF Fiorentina, it's no different.
Five reasons Roma can win the Scudetto Serie A 2014/15 season preview is a post from: Just Football
For the past three seasons, Serie A has been held in the increasingly steely grip of an Old Lady bent on making up for time lost after the Calciopoli scandal. Juventus won their first title since returning to the top flight in 2011/12 by four points, increased that gap to nine points in winning a second in 2012/13, before amassing a ridiculous 102 points en route to a third consecutive scudetto last season.
Although Thomas Vermaelen has declared that he is fully focused on getting Arsenal their first trophy in nearly a decade, the subject of his future will not go away. With a year left on his contract, it does seem that the Arsenal captain will either be persuaded to sign a new contract or sold this [.
Blame Wenger not Players by Ronny331 I think that Arsenal fans' frustration must be shown towards Arsene Wenger and not the players. I'm getting tired of reading the criticism against our players. Every week it's Giroud, now Wilshire and Arteta. I do admit during some games I get angry, upset, emotional and often vent at [.
Wenger had to sign a striker in summer by Dave N I am absolutely furious.

Why it's Ok to change your opinions by KJ Twitter today has been rife with criticisms of those who've changed their opinions on certain Arsenal players, as they've become better players.

Until Gervinho masterminded a glorious Roma win yesterday evening, it was an intercontinental top of the table clash. I guess it still is. They have a point more than us in Serie A and we match them in the group of DEATH (hence the phrase "See Naples..."
Former Arsenal player Gervinho has taken a swipe at Arsene Wenger, saying he already has more "affinity" with Roma boss Rudi Garcia than he ever had with Wenger. The Ivory Coast international never got going during his time at the Emirates, which will be most fondly remembered for a series of comical misses.
AS Roma returned to the UEFA Champions League in style.
The Italian club, playing their first Champions League match since 2011, slammed home four goals in the first 30 minutes of the game before adding a fifth for good measure early in the second half, crushing CSKA Moscow, 5-1, at the Stadio Olimpico.

Former Arsenal flop lashes out at Wenger - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Former Arsenal attacker Gervinho has slammed Arsene Wenger for sapping his confidence through extended periods on the bench during his two year stay in North London.
The Ivory Coast international, who signed for Serie A side Roma last summer for â‚¬8m, is enjoying a new lease of life under new boss Rudi Garcia, and has clearly highlighted the difference between his experiences,
"The fundamental difference between the Roma and Arsenal is the coach,"Gervinho told 'Sports Ilustrated',
"Garcia here gives me confidence, I know that he believes in me.
I giallorossi di Rudi Garcia vincono 3 a 1 al Bentegodi contro l'Hellas Verona (alla terza sconfitta consecutiva, ndr) e, complici i pari di Napoli (1 a 1 con il Chievo al San Paolo) e Juventus (1 a 1 all'Olimpico contro la Lazio) negli anticipi di Serie A, si portano a -6 dai bianconeri, aumentando [.

Arsenal flop scores wondergoal in Italy â€“ did Arsene make a mistake? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal's lack of strength in depth in attack has been well publicised this season, with an over-reliance on Olivier Giroud to lead the line for the North London outfit.
As such, a host of striking targets have been mentioned as potential additions for Arsene Wenger's men, as the club looks to take some of the goalscoring burden off the France international's shoulders.
Un gol di Gervinho, nel finale di match, regala alla Roma di Garcia il pass per la Semifinale di Coppa Italia, a spese della Juventus di Antonio Conte. Dopo il 3 a 0 subito in Serie A, i giallorossi si prendono una gustosa rivincita, eliminando dalla competizione la Signora del calcio italiano e ora aspettano [.

Having been beaten 3-0 by Juventus just recently in Serie A and trailing by 8 points in the title race, Roma's players knew tonight was the night to perform if they were to salvage their season and that they did as Gervinho popped up late to volley home the winner with a karate kick which sent the Stadio Olimpico faithful into a frenzy and the club into the Coppa Italia semi-finals where they meet the winners of tomorrows match-up between Napoli and Lazio.
We all know that the priority for Arsenal in this January transfer window is a striker. Whether it be a player who can replace Theo Walcott while the England international recovers from his anterior cruciate ligament damage, or another player in the mould of Olivier Giroud. But we also know that Arsene Wenger has his [.
Gervinho response for the Gunners! by Ash Gervinho left the Gunners this summer just gone to look for a new start after what was a heavily disappointing two years in England. Arsene Wenger brought Gervinho in from French side Lille when he was in flying colours alongside current Chelsea player Eden Hazard.
Totti e Gervinho out, ma la Roma non ha paura Di Fabrizio Landolfi Solidit e concretezza: queste due qualit sono l'estrema sintesi di quanto ci ha mostrato finora la Roma di Rudi Garcia, vittoriosa in otto gare su otto giocate, contro avversari di diverso spessore tecnico. Mai nella storia giallorossa c'era stata una partenza cosÃ¬, quindi il forte ed improvviso entusiasmo di una tifoseria
The Ivorian striker has broken any lingering ties he had with Arsenal Football Club, by stupidly stating that he wants Napoli to beat the Gunners in the Champions League this season. The striker is doing pretty well in Italy since his summer transfer to Roma, but there was absolutely no need for him to wish [.
Ivory Coast 2014 World Cup squad is a post from: Just Football
Ivory Coast's 2014 World Cup squad relies on the experience of a fading golden generation; the few youngsters involved are unlikely to feature in the first team, bar one or two. One who could catch the eye however, is right back Serge Aurier, the 21-year-old who has pushed Emmanuel Eboue out of contention and attracted attention from Arsenal and Liverpool due to his athletic performances, versatility and creativity in defence at Toulouse.
Manuel Neuer didn't become one of the best goalkeepers in the world for nothing and has only enhanced his position with this fantastic double save to deny Gervinho with the first effort and scrambling over to make the second save from Nainggolan's drive as Bayern beat Roma 2-0 at the Allianz Arena.
Liverpool has identified Yaya Toure and Gervinho as top transfer targets as they look to replace the attacking contribution of Luis Suarez, CaughtOffside understands. Suarez will complete his move to Barcelona in the next 24 hours, leaving Liverpool with a huge hole to fill and the best part of £75m in spending money.

Una Roma corsara, Gervinho inarrestabile, e adesso il derby Di Fabrizio Landolfi Quella di Rudi Garcia dimostra e conferma sempre di piÃ¹ di essere una squadra combattiva, piena di uomini con grande personalit e molto unita. La mano dell'allenatore si vede, indubbiamente, ma va dato merito anche ai giocatori di dare sempre il massimo, in ogni partita.
