"Hey Napoli, U mad brah?"

1. Regardless of his winning goal, Branislav Ivanovic had a shocker from a defensive standpoint. Positionally AWOL for long periods and repeatedly lapse and worryingly uninterested when closing down crosses.

Uncomfortable steamers

Last week I wrote about my perception that results become more variable at this stage of the season, as pressure and fatigue begin to lay siege on players. Lactic acid grips limbs and coils itself tightly. This is why plucky little minnows Chelsea, with their £50m substitute striker, can slay the behemoth of Barcelona and their Barcisssistic ballet of passing and write the kind of David and Goliath script that causes British journalists to writhe in Nevillegasm.

Lucas Leiva Out For Season

The Offside - Liverpool at related • 0 views

The swelling went down, the MRI was done, and the news came back confirming the worst fears and least palatable rumours: Lucas Leiva will be out, at best, for the remainder of the season after injuring his ACL. This is, of course, horrible news for the player himself, whose development into one of the best holding midfielders in world football had finally seen a long overdue shift in public and media opinion.

What the hell was Jair Benitez thinking?

FC Dallas has followed a path similar to the Portland Timbers this season. They started out the season by adding some high profile South American talent to their roster, had a couple of good results early on, but since then they have been just about the biggest disappointment in MLS, now tied for the league's worst record.

Who knows if we'll ever see a fully fit Seattle Sounders team, but Saturday's match against Real Salt Lake will be the closest they've been since the season opener. Of the outfield players not on the disabled list, only Patrick Ianni is still dealing with significant health issues. His back apparently acted up on the flight to Dallas and he's now undergoing an MRI to determine the injury's seriousness.

It's that time of year when the new kit is launched and you need to get down to the Armoury to get your new Red and White (with a dash of an alien colour) shirt.

So before setting out I thought I had better check Arsenal.

Games from Group B have been a pleasure to watch. It's a shame two of these teams will go out.

Denmark's battle with Portugal was probably the most entertaining game of the tournament and even the technical quality wasn't too far from the level that Italy and Spain have demonstrated. The Selecção took the lead through a set-piece and doubled it before half-time through a well-worked goal by Postiga.

Following consecutive league defeats (both games in which we took the lead) I think we can all agree the need for savage and violent revolution is obvious. A blood thirsty, shrieking gallop to the hills followed by a good fortnight of medieval combat ought to sort it. Because nothing quite says "ambitious football club" like flapping through a wooded area wearing Arsene Wenger's skin as a dress and Peter Hill Wood's nuts for earrings.
