In the wake of Sven Goran Eriksson's opinion that Arsene Wenger would be the ideal next England manager, bookmakers have installed the Frenchman at odds of 25/1 to take over from Fabio Capello when the Italian's contract is up next year.

Needless to say, few people will be in agreement with Eriksson's opinion and anyone with a brain cell will not really believe this will actually happen, moreover there is no way that the Arsenal boss would even consider taking the post (fortunately for England fans).

Morning all,

with the job well and truly done in Europe the attention can now turn back to the Premier League and tomorrow's game against Fulham. The early team news is that we don't appear to have lost anyone after the game against Dortmund. Koscielny's withdrawal was due to 'fatigue' and beyond the short and long-termers there's nothing new to report on that front, which is good to hear.

The Rest

You see, Arshavin, when he was trying to find a copy of his contract in the basement, had stumbled upon it in the storeroom that contains, amongst other things, George Graham's old scarf, a somewhat dishevelled Glenn Helder and Paul Merson's pool cue.
