The relief was almost tangible as Arsenal began life after Cesc with a win last night, beating Udinese 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League play-off at the Emirates thanks to a fourth-minute Theo Walcott goal.

However, the narrow victory wasn't overly convincing, with the Italians going close on several occasions particularly Antonio Di Natale, who clipped the woodwork twice and forced a decent save out of Wojciech Szczczczczczcney in the first-half.

There is only so much that one can take from another human being before one snaps.

Paris Saint-Germain' march to the Ligue 1 title, hit a speed bump on Saturday as they needed a last-minute penalty from Zlatan Ibrahimovic to snatch a 2-2 draw at home to Lorient.

The script was that PSG would simply march through Ligue 1 this season on the way to the title, but Lorient obviously did not read that script as a Maxwell own goal and a Jérémie Aliadière doubled Lorient's lead moments before the break, gliding in from the left past the static PSG defence and firing in low from the edge of the area.

An Italian walks into a bar in Tokyo and asks for a local brew, but not wishing to disappoint, the barman discreetly pours the visitor a Peroni instead.

It's a plausible scenario in a country like Japan, where citizens are eager to please and equally desperate to avoid criticism.

Perhaps that's why the Japanese press were quick to turn a blind eye to another poor performance from the Samurai Blue at the Asian Cup in Qatar, as Alberto Zaccheroni's men laboured to a 2-1 win over a spirited but technically inferior Syria.
