Wenger's men played out a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow in mid-week to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League. They have to be better. "They had the belief that we could score and we did it and after you could see we were suffering sometimes as it's a very good team so to beat a team like this is very impressive". Rafa, he argued, doesn't play an exciting enough brand of football for the Arsenal fans to get behind, that setting teams up to avoid defeat was his main footballing principle.

Arsenal were already certain to rest players from the Singapore competition because of what has always been Wenger's desire for them to have at least three completely clear weeks of rest during the summer. The Gunners won by four or five and played some fantastic football.

After the game, Gunners goalie Petr Cech said the defeat summed up life away from the Emirates Stadium. As we enthused about it and described what happened, his reaction to the goal/game was 'Yeah, it was alright but these Champions League group stages are just so boring now'.

Yes they had some good attacking players as well but it was all about not conceding at the back and then nicking a goal at the other end.

Strong Winds and Rain for Monday
Highs along the Missouri River were lucky to manage 40° while areas on our western fringe, including Sheridan, made a run at 80°. As temperatures drop Wednesday night into Thursday morning we could see some snowflakes mixed in with the raindrops.

That is the verdict of former Premier League star turned pundit Danny Murphy.

"When you commit so many team mistakes, away or home, you get punished and Sunday proved that". Not only has the Spaniard achieved this pretty comfortably, but five wins in a row mean that the Magpies could well finish in the top half in their first season back in the top division.

The 2-1 result saw Newcastle nudge their way into the top 10 with a fourth win in a row that all but seals their Premier League safety. 'I'm going to put this to bed straight away because Newcastle fans would be laughing at you two muppets right now.

The visitors were unbeaten at Newcastle in over a decade but they chose to throw that record away, putting in a display worth being vilified and berated for.
