Bayern bask after crushing Roma

Bayern Munich produced a stunning display on Tuesday evening by brushing Roma aside with a 7-1 victory.

Pep Guardiola’s side cruised to their third win in Group E and were 5-0 up by half time following Arjen Robben’s double, along with goals from Mario Gotze, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri netted late on to complete the rout, while Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi admits the loss is “a dagger into the heart” of the Roma supporters.

Newcastle's French revolution goes a step too far

Defenders Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Massadio Haidara, midfielder Moussa Sissoko and winger Yoann Gouffran all look set to be confirmed as Magpies players this week, bolstering a squad which already boasts the talents of former Ligue 1 stars Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa and Mathieu Debuchy, among others.

All this comes after Alan Pardew was gazumped by QPR and Harry Redknapp in the race for Marseille striker Loic Remy. So who is next? Napoleon? Marcel Marceau? Gerard Depardieu? Some randomer wearing a hooped jumper with perhaps a greater affection for garlic than is wise?

As Goal.com's satirist-in-chief George Ankers claims, maybe it's time for Newcastle to start calling themselves Nouveauchateau. Whoever it is, we're all for it. Allez les Toon!

Window pain for Wenger as David Villa slips out of Arsenal's grasp

It could have been another long-running transfer saga involving Barcelona and Arsenal, but now the Catalans have declared that striker David Villa is not for sale at any price.

The Gunners had made a formal approach, but after Barca manager Tito Vilanova said the Spaniard was not for sale, Goal.com exclusively revealed that the Londoners were relenting in their pursuit.

However, Arsene Wenger has now reportedly turned his attention to Atletico Madrid's Adrian Lopez, so it's clear that the Gunners will keep trying for a new striker until they finally get one in the transfer window.

AC Milan star in 'The Can't Spendables'

After a disastrous summer in the transfer market, AC Milan's Serie A campaign got off to a distinctly underwhelming start with a 1-0 defeat to Sampdoria.

In addition to jettisoning veterans Alessandro Nesta, Clarence Seedorf, Mark van Bommel Gennaro Gattuso and Pippo Inzaghi in the close season, the Rossoneri also sold stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to free-spending Paris Saint-Germain and Antonio Cassano to rivals Inter in return for Giampaolo Pazzini.
Chief executive Adriano Galliani's attempts to sign replacements - Real Madrid superstar Kaka has been linked with a return to San Siro - have been undermined by the club's poor financial situation, leaving Milan's hopes of success in Italy and Europe this season looking more forlorn than ever.
