Monday nights slate offers up seven games?? Which players should be in your Friday night DFS basketball lineups, and which superstars should stay on the daily fantasy bench? Joe Kaiser, Renee Miller and Al Zeidenfeld provide their picks and fades for the final day of the work week. Zapatillas Asics Baratas España .Players to build aroundKyle Soppe -- Markieff Morris, Washington WizardsIts a new season, anything can happen -- in most cases. The Rockets were a below-average team in terms of defensive efficiency last season and rank dead last in the early going this season, making them an easy target on this abbreviated slate. Morris is a versatile big man, who has logged at least 33 minutes in four straight games, and given Washingtons up-tempo style, that means fantasy goodness. Morris has attempted 18 free throws over his last two games, while blocking multiple shots one night and recording three steals the other. Im building cash and GPP lineups around him tonight and feeling good about it.Renee Miller -- Kevin Durant, Golden State WarriorsDurant shined when he faced the Pelicans a couple weeks ago, with 30 points and 17 rebounds to go with a pair of blocks and steals. It was his best game of the season, not that theres really been a bad one from the Warriors new star. Im more willing to compromise at PG and not use Russell Westbrook than I am to fade Durant at SF tonight. New Orleans is surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points to the position and Durant might actually improve that rank tonight. There is enough mid-range value that I feel good about locking Durant into all lineups.Joe Kaiser -- George Hill, Utah JazzHill is averaging 20.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 steal per game, and he remains reasonably priced on a night when he faces the 20th-ranked Philadelphia defense. Hill is shooting the ball well, making more than 60 percent of his shots in four of the last five games. Even on the second of a back-to-back, Im not hesitating to get him in my lineups on Monday.Al Zeidenfeld -- Langston Galloway, New Orleans PelicansHis minutes have been steady the past two games in the 28-31 minute range and now the Pelicans are without Lance Stephenson, which will solidify playing time and usage for Galloway for the short term, at the very least. Galloway is a competent scorer when given enough run to make things happen and is sitting at the minimum price on DraftKings tonight. If you want to be able to afford the stars, youll need his value until/unless something else pops up closer to lock time.Players to fadeKyle Soppe - Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ersAs a number-cruncher, I preach trusting the process over the results, but I simply cant trust The Process tonight with the Jazz coming to town. Utahs game plan is to slow tempo and dig in defensively; not exactly how you want the game script to look for fantasy purposes. The Jazz defend the paint with Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, a tandem that is allowing the center position to account for fewer than 14 points per game this season. Embiid is a fine player, but he loses this battle of elite-nicknamed big men against The Stifle Tower and doesnt approach value tonight.Renee Miller -- Anthony Davis, New Orleans PelicansDavis has come back to Earth after scoring almost 200 fantasy points in his first two games, one of which was against the Warriors in New Orleans. While the Warriors are the leagues second-most generous matchup to opposing power forwards, Davis has notable home/road splits. In an equal number of career home and road games (133 each), Davis has 40 fewer rebounds, 34 fewer assists, 109 fewer blocks and 38 more personal fouls on the road. I know that few, if any, players at his position boast the kind of talent and opportunity Davis possesses, but Im not paying up for him tonight in cash game lineups with several alternatives at a far lower price point.Joe Kaiser -- Terrence Jones, New Orleans PelicansJones busted out last game and will certainly get a longer look going forward, but that also came in a game during which Dante Cunningham was suspended and out of the lineup. Recency bias will lead to Jones being on a lot of rosters tonight against Golden State, but with Cunningham back and Jones being one of the more inconsistent players in the NBA, Im staying away from him tonight.Al Zeidenfeld -- Myles Turner, Indiana Pacers - I like Turners talent, but his salary has ballooned to a point where I cant justify getting him into lineups anymore. At the point hes at now, he has failed to exceed his salary expectation in five straight games, and until the salary drops another 10-15 percent, I will be happy to roster other players in the same pricing tier who have higher median projections and upside.Al Zeidenfeld is a promoter & user at DraftKings (Username: Al_Smizzle) and plays on his personal account in games he offers advice on. These views/strategies are his own and do not reflect the views of DraftKings. He may also deploy different players/strategies than what he advises.

LONDON -- In the end, Andy Murrays victory over Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon mens final was a one-sided affair as the British No. Chris Iannetta Jersey . 1 lifted his second title at SW19 in straight sets.However, after many had predicted a closer encounter on Centre Court, we round up the thoughts of those in the know to find out how Murray nullified the Raonic threat.Richard Krajicek1996 Wimbledon champion and now Stan Wawrinkas coaching consultant:The thing that impressed me most about Andys performance was his focus. He didnt lose his concentration. He was so committed. It was that focus and determination that allowed him to return so well.Maybe some will say that Raonic didnt serve that well. I dont think he served that badly, it was just that the ball keep coming back the whole time. So Raonic started to go for more and he started to make some mistakes.I was so impressed with Andys attitude -- he showed such desire and will to win. The emotions were very different from three years ago. In 2013, Andy was going for his first Wimbledon title and he was also playing against Novak Djokovic and you really thought he could lose that one. Until the end, you werent sure that he would close it out, and there was always a chance that something could go wrong.Today it was different. The whole time you had the feeling that he was going to do it. He had done before and Raonic didnt have the previous experience.Boris Becker1985, 1986, and 1989 Wimbledon champion, and Novak Djokovics coach:Andy was solid. You could see during the match that he had more experience. Milos was knocking on the door but not loud enough. Andys 29, at the peak of his career, so Im sure hes going to be up for a few more Grand Slams. Grass is his most natural surface, and hes always going to be a big threat at Wimbledon. Hard court is a great surface for him, too. Hell be winning a couple more.Stefan Edberg1988 and 1990 Wimbledon champion, and Roger Federers former coach:Andy Murray was in control from the very beginning. In finals, the first set is always crucial. Once he was ahead he never looked back. Milos never really had a chance until into the third set. At 29, Im sure Murray is going to win more slams, there is no question. There are a lot of good guys around but hes going to have a few good years ahead of him.Lleyton Hewitt2002 Wimbledon champion:Andy was like a brick wall. He played a fabulous match. In tiebreakers, against a big server, those could be nervy times, but Andy dominated. He couldnt have played any better.The former British No. 1s viewTim Henman, four-time Wimbledon semifinalist:I dont think he could have played any better. He delivered with every aspect of his game.And some words from the familyShirley Erskine, Murrays grandmother:It was fantastic. I wasnt here three years ago when Andy won and I didnt want to miss this final as well. It wasnt as emotional as three years ago, but Im thrilled.Judy Murray, his mother and first coach:He was so solid off the ground, he was really strong on serve and I just felt confident that he was going to get the job done. Its great. I could tell he was very emotional at the end and the way he was holding the trophy, it was like, youre not taking that away from me.

Cheap Rockies Jerseys . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1.The pressure has cranked up on Roberto Martinez after a 4-0 Merseyside derby humbling for his Everton side at Anfield. While Jurgen Klopp laughed and joked in the home dugout, the Spaniard cut a stern figure on the touchline, as Liverpool pulled his 10-man team apart in the second-half.The hosts were already 2-0 up when Ramiro Funes Mori saw red for an ugly challenge on Divock Origi on 50 minutes and from there on it was an exhibition from Liverpool, with Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho rounding off a miserable night for Everton. Here, we look at the talking points from the match…Martinez feeling the heat Roberto Martinez told Sky Sports Evertons defeat to Liverpool was embarrassing It was a horrible, horrible showing… Its a feeling of embarrassment. Roberto Martinez, so often eager to put a positive spin on his Everton teams defeats, could not hide his disappointment at this heavy loss to Liverpool. The Spaniard had gone into the game under pressure and this result and performance has only served to exacerbate the situation.Thats an embarrassing defeat, an embarrassing performance and if he gets something similar against Manchester United [in Saturdays FA Cup semi-final] I think its difficult for him to come back, said Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher. Liverpool on top Liverpool are unbeaten in the last 11 Premier League Merseyside derbies (W4 D7 L0). The numbers dont make for good reading. Liverpool had 37 attempts on goal to Evertons three. The visitors didnt force Simon Mignolet into a single save. The Reds also enjoyed 67 per cent possession and had 64 touches in the opposition box. On only three occasions did one of Martinezs players touch the ball in the Liverpool box. Everton didnt manage a single shot on target.It was one of the most one-sided derbies in recent times - although Liverpool did also beat Everton 4-0 in January 2014. Martinez was manager of Everton that day, too.Now Martinez has to find a way to lift the spirits of his players for their trip to Wembley this weekend. His future tenure as Everton manager could depend on it. He said himself it was a defining four or five days, said Carragher. The first half of that has been a disaster for him. How can he pick them up now and go again?Everton dealt FA Cup blows John Stones was forced off with stomach cramps As if a thrashing at the hands of your rivals was not bad enough preparation for a major Wembley fixture, Everton are facing a defensive crisis for their FA Cup semi-final.Ramiro Funes Mori will be suspended, following his straight red card. John Stones was forced to leave the pitch in the second half with stomach cramps. Thats in addition to Seamus Coleman and Phil Jagielka, who are both struggling with hamstring problems.Muhamed Besic and James McCarthy finished the game at centre-half for Everton at Anfield, and Martinez may well be forced into playing another inexperienced pairing in defence on Saturday.Funes Mori sees red Ramiro Funes Mori grabbed the Everton badge as he left the pitch During his time with River Plate in Argentina, Funes Mori played and scored against arch rivals Boca Juniors in a Superclasico Copa Libertadores final, so the notion that hed get carried away in this fixture seems an odd one. But, with his team seemingly reeling from a half-time dressing down from the management, the 25-year-old made an ugly challenge on Origi and was rightfully dismissed.Referee Robert Madley at first drew a yellow card from his pocket, beforre appearing to be advised by assistant that the challenge warranted a more severe punishment. Chris Rusin Jersey. It was a decision Carragher in the Sky Sports studio agreed with, although he was critical of Funes Moris reaction to his dismissal. Merseyside derby dismissals There have now been 21 red cards in the Merseyside derby in Premier League history, more than any other fixture (14 Everton, 7 Liverpool). He has let himself down with the challenge, said the former Liverpool defender. It happens in football. Ive made bad challenges and other players have made bad challenges, but going off the pitch he was kissing his badge to the Everton fans.Why was he kissing the badge? Number one, he has only been here for two minutes and number two, why is he playing to the crowd? Because hes injured a Liverpool player? Are they going to be happy with that?They were getting battered in the game and hes now going to miss the biggest game of the season when theyve got Jagielka out. Its embarrassing. What is he doing? Everton fans wont fall for that nonsense. It was the only challenge anyone put in by the way, but it was a bad one.Liverpool on a roll Liverpool have won their last four fixtures across all competitions Regardless of how many changes Jurgen Klopp makes, Liverpool keep on winning. Despite 10 changes at Bournemouth and nine on Wednesday, the Reds have now notched up four victories in a row across all competitions - with an aggregate score of 14-5.With a Europa League semi-final on Thursday, expect further changes for the visit of Rafa Benitezs Newcastle to Anfield this weekend. But the momentum is with Klopps squad right now, and Liverpools former manager Benitez will face a huge test with his relegation-threatened side.Against Everton, Liverpool impressed from front to back, but Mamadou Sakho, Philippe Coutinho and James Milner deserve special credit. Milner on song James Milner has recorded 11 assists in 2016 in all competitions, three more than any other PL player. The latter was imperious at the back, aggressive in the opposition box and careful in possession. His Brazilian colleague had 116 touches (almost twice as many as any Everton player), fired nine shots at goal and recorded six key passes.However, Milner took home the man of the match prize after registering two assists in one game for just the second time in his Premier League career. The previous occasion came just 10 days earlier at Stoke.Klopp has got his Liverpool squad firing at the business end of the season. Origi injury opens the door for Sturridge Daniel Sturridge scored his 50th Liverpool goal Despite the win, Klopp conceded he could not be 100 per cent happy with the outcome, given Origis injury. The 21-year-old Belgian appeared to have established himself has his managers first-choice forward and, after his first-half goal against Everton made it five in five games, all was going to plan.However, Funes Moris challenge saw Origi leave the field on a stretcher and, while the full extent of his ankle problem is yet to be revealed, there are concerns he could be set for an extended period on the sidelines.That presents an opportunity for Daniel Sturridge. The England striker grabbed a goal and attempted to claim Coutinhos after replacing Origi and he is now in a position to stake a claim for a regular starting spot. Divock Origi was stretchered off with an ankle injury Sturridges cool finish made it 50 goals in 87 games for Liverpool - only Fernando Torres has reached the milestone in quicker time for the Reds during the Premier League era. However, Carragher says Sturridge still has work to do to ensure he is part of Klopps plans going forward.That record hes got shows the quality of Daniel Sturridge, said Carragher. Hes an unbelievable striker. But hes got to think to himself, why am I not in this team? Its not an unbelievable Liverpool team. The fact hes not playing is something that has to sink in.

It has been two weeks since WWE kicked off its self-proclaimed new era with a brand split and a draft, changes that produced a red-hot run of shows on Raw.But the WWEs flagship program came back down to earth Monday night in a big way.If the fading of the new-car smell seems quick, it shouldnt, as the timing fits in with WWEs recent history. Week 3 of the four-week structure between pay-per-view events has typically been the weakest, with the more explosive moments saved for the go-home show. Its something that bodes well for next week, just days before SummerSlam invades New York City.But the bar had been set high in previous weeks with new pushes, fresh booking and a heavy splash of much-needed PG-13 dialogue and intensity, all of which were mostly missing Monday (with the exception of some well-played jokes at the expense of Big Es injury below the belt).In its place was a noticeable void of top stars being used in prominent spots and a predictable finish to a main event match --?Rusev?vs.?Cesaro?for the WWE United States title -- that didnt start until 11 p.m. ET and had?been?hastily thrown together moments earlier.If the WWE had hopes of building two separate brands that are independent of and in competition with each other, the cheap pop from SmackDown Lives Daniel Bryan invading the final segment of Raw felt gratuitous. Cross-pollinating with run-ins from?Brock Lesnar?and?Randy Orton?is one thing and an extreme case unto itself; this one, however, was forced.But all was not lost Monday as WWE did a good job, mostly in subtle ways, of keeping the storyline moving within the major feuds. The attention to detail remained high, proving to be a good step forward from the old method of killing time with unnecessary rematches. Its something we are likely to see less of after the brand extension because of how valuable each second of real estate has become.Credit?Seth Rollins?(in-ring) and?Finn Balor?(pretaped) for strong promos to keep interest high ahead of their inaugural WWE Universal title match, even if the decision not to showcase Balor in a match on Monday felt like?a?mistake.Rollins did a nice job of teasing the fear inside of him (remember, every great heel needs a weakness or he or she wouldnt have chosen that path) over Balors hidden persona, with references to Balors last name translating to demon king in Irish mythology. Balor, meanwhile, showed hints at a possible heel turn down the road (Balor Club, anyone?) by teasing a creepier and more sinister edge. WWE doesnt usually take that much time explaining the origin of a character, but for anyone who doesnt watch NXT and will be seeing Balors face paint and unique entrance at SummerSlam for the first time, it made sense.The WWE also officially announced three more bouts for the Aug. 21 SummerSlam card in Brooklyn:?Enzo & Cass?vs.?Chris Jericho?and?Kevin Owens?in a tag team match; Rusev vs.?Roman Reigns?for Rusevs United States?championship;?and?The New Day?vs.?The Club?for the WWE tag team championships.Hits and missesA match as star-studded as Lesnar-Orton doesnt need much of a proper build to garner buzz, especially with Orton returning from injury and Lesnar fresh off the bad press of a UFC doping violation. But WWE has done well?to build this the old-fashioned way and?not?cut corners. Mondays prepackaged video?promo showcasing their history was full of trash talk, the perfect complement to each superstar trading finishing moves last week.Sasha Banks victory over?Dana Brooke?added a stipulation to Banks WWE womens championship rematch with Charlotte at SummerSlam, banning Brooke from ringside. Banks-Charlotte?is the rivalry WWE fans have clamored for since day one of last years so-called Divas Revolution (now Womens Revolution). Removing the chance of a schmoz?finish should allow two of the companys best workers to better shine.With the brand split producing a shortage of tag teams on each show, Im all for WWE getting creative in matching Jericho and Oweens as tag team foils at SummerSlam for?Enzo Amore?and?Big Cass.

Although adding some spice to the dialogue is mostly welcome in this PG era, this was an uncalled-for turn.It was a piece of cake for @WWERomanReigns to wreck @RusevBUL and @LanaWWEs post-wedding celebration. #RAW WWE (@WWE) August 9, 2016Reigns was strong in the Rusev-Lana segment, receiving huge pops on his way in and out of the ring as WWE stubbornly stays the course of keeping him babyface. Reigns twice telling Rusev to put that beef away as he took off his vest was an honorable mention for line of the night.Raw announcer Corey Graves referred to?Braun Strowman?as a walking abomination during the former Wyatt Family members third straight squash match. As far as on-the-fly descriptors are concerned, that was?perfect.Part of why?Titus ONeils?subtle heel turn against?Darren Young?is working so well is hes taking an already physical style and adding viciousness. This is the right direction.It was good to see WWE continue a trend that any formal event that takes place inside the ring needs to end in all-out craziness. Rusev and?Lanas?wedding segment was poorly written and went on way too?long, but the payoff of Lana going face-first into the cake was enough to cover all sins (even if seeing her covered in red frosting brought eerie flashbacks of the 1976 thriller Carrie).Ive never been one for forced celebrity skits on WWE television, but considering the amount of promotion for Sean Puff Daddy Combs guest spot on Raw, his brief appearance was underwhelming.

Had Cesaro, an underused and forgotten player beloved?by?smart fans, surprised Rusev by winning the U.S. title in the main event, setting up an out-of-nowhere triple threat at SummerSlam, it would have accomplished three things. First, the upset win would have saved last nights largely forgettable show. Second, it would have justified the storyline push of using Cesaro twice in one night. Finally, the shotgun booking would have furthered the idea that anything can happen in this must-see new era of Raw and SmackDown. Falling back on a predictable finish, using the tease of a stipulation to hold interest in an otherwise unnecessary and poorly executed main event, instead added to the belief that Cesaro is an afterthought in the eyes of the WWE, particularly on Raw, and a superstar who could be much better off with some kind of trade to SmackDown.

Harlequins No 8 Nick Easter has backed Manu Tuilagi to make an impact in the closing stages of Englands Six Nations clash with Wales at Twickenham. Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys . The Leicester centre has endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury, but has featured for the Tigers in the Premiership and the Champions Cup this year.Leicester boss Cockerill stated this week that he felt Tuilagi is not yet back to full fitness, but England coach Eddie Jones has ignored the comments and included the midfielder on the bench for the big game. Its a move that Easter feels is the right one in terms of Tuilagis reintroduction to Test-match rugby. Its good to see him back, said Easter on Rugby Club. Theres not many international games throughout the season and hes strung three or four games together for Leicester. Get the guy out there.Hes proven world class, he needs to get up to that level again.I think Eddies looking at playing him at 12. I dont think he should have come straight back into the side, I quite like what England are doing with George Ford and Owen Farrell as two playmakers. Richard Cockerill has warned England coach Eddie Jones not to push Manu Tuilagi too hard The Harlequins forward says Tuilagis inevitable introduction, along with that of the other replacements, will test the resolute Welsh defensive structures late in the encounter.Easter added: A lot of [Wales] game is based around defence but will they get off the floor quicker? Will their line-speed be as quick? And then big Manu is running straight at you!Englands bench has proved the difference in the last two games and I think Eddie will probably look for that to be the case again. Warren Gatland says it was an easy decision to pick the same team for Wales Six Nations clash against England Although Wales are a formidable defensive unit with Shaun Edwards in charge, Easter believes England will come out on top due to Wales struggle to score tries.Everyone is talking about the Welsh defence, but England have conceded one try in three games, Wales conceded four, he said.I dont really see it being a massively high-scoring game; I see England winning by seven points.I think Wales have got enough world-class players to stay in there, what I struggle with is seeing Wales being able to score more than 20 points - if England are disciplined. If England are ill-disciplined [Dan] Biggar will slot those goals, but their attack hasnt really taken off as much as they will have wanted it to this Six Nations.When you go away from home in big games like this youve got to be able to score 20-plus points to win games and I cant see Wales doing that.Last time Wales faced England at Twickenham they did score more than 20 points, as they put Englands World Cup dream out of reach with a 28-25 win over the tournament hosts. Eddie Jones says the World Cup defeat to Wales has not been spoken about Jones claimed that the game has not been spoken about in the England camp, but Easter says those who played in the game will find it difficult to ignore.It will be mentioned. Guys who were involved will probably reminisce on how it was the one that got away. It was a key game that got away, Easter said. Wales beat England the last time the two sides met at Twickenham England were fully in control with 15 minutes to go, but Wales will always back their fitness and came back well.It will just be one or two mentions, but the guys will be bouncing off the walls to get out there.I would say that theres a few there that want to right the wrongs, but its a different competition and a different prize up for grabs as well.Should Eddie Jones have waited before bringing Manu Tuilagi back into the side?

Then, they pulled off their big upset at McKeon Pavilion, where the Gaels had won eight straight and 23 of 24, and cheers were heard from the visiting locker room.But Saint Marys (6-1) never clicked against the scrappy UTA team while returning from a break for final exams for its first game since a win at Stanford on Nov. 30. The Gaels were held to 31.4 percent from the field and shot 8 of 27 on 3-pointers.I thought we got outplayed. Pretty simple, Saint Marys coach Randy Bennett said. I thought they beat us at every phase.The speedy Neal added 13 points and eight assists in UTAs seventh straight victory.It was definitely an unbelievable game for us, Cross said. Our guys probably played as good of basketball as we could have, especially defensively, because watching them on video I honestly thought it was the best offensive team I think Ive ever seen in my entire life.Jock Landale had a rare poor shooting performance, limited to 14 points on 3 of 10 from the floor and the Gaels had a season-low 11 assists to go with 16 turnovers.Saint Marys trailed 49-30 with 11:50 to play, then used an 11-3 spurt to get back to 52-41.

Sky Sports News HQs Rob Dorsett is in Barcelona ahead of Arsenals Champions League clash and has been speaking with Gunners fans about the future of manager Arsene Wenger. Comprar Zapatillas Saucony Baratas . Ask any Arsenal fan here for the game at the Nou Camp, and the same pained expression comes across their face. It hurts them to even think about it. But, with Arsenal facing another last-16 exit from the Champions League, just three days after being knocked out of the FA Cup at home to Watford, theyll tell you the situation is becoming critical.Its the main topic among the travelling groups, in every tapas restaurant and bar along Los Ramblas - and they are divided almost 50-50. Arsenal supporters are realistic about beating Barcelona in the Champions League last 16 second-leg tie The man is an Arsenal man, says one fan. A legend. It should be his choice when he goes. I can see him walking, I honestly can. I cant say a word against him, but there has to be change. We are just going nowhere. We just arent good enough to compete with the likes of Barcelona - one Champions League semi-final in 10 years tells its own story.Its all weve heard among Arsenal fans over here. Its been the only topic of conversation. I will never go on telly and call for him to go. Im 28, and Wenger is all Ive ever known. He is Mr Arsenal. But we are now at a stage where enough is enough. Sometimes change isnt a bad thing. Wengers Arsenal have won the FA Cup for the last two seasons - but crashed out at home to Watford last weekend Its horrible seeing the in-fighting among Arsenal fans right now. He should go. But I hate seeing that banner, the one that says Thanks for the memories, Arsene as the fans row between themselves, and some fight to take it down. We have to get behind the team, and save the arguments until the end of the season.Every Arsenal fan seems to share the sentiment about what Wenger has done for their club, and for English football, over the past two decades. But at least half of the fans Ive spoken to - and maybe more than half - think that its time for a change. Some Arsenal fans held up a banner calling for Arsene Wenger during Arsenals FA Cup win at Hull Its time for him to step down, says another fan I spoke to. He shouldve done it at end of last season, because now hes starting to become something of a villain for the fans and thats very hard to take, seeing a man whos done so much for the club becoming hated by so many.Hes our greatest ever manager, we can never repay him for what hes done. But there has to come a time when he has to move on, and that time is now. Its overdue.Hes always going to be a legend at our club for what hes done, but I just think its time for a fresh face, fresh ideas. Wenger has had the same ideas for years. That was fair enough when we were paying off the stadium debt. He managed the club very well in that time. But I find it hard to believe there arent better players out there we couldve bought since then. Can Arsenal salvage season? Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith surveys the scene at the Emirates Not one Arsenal fan Ive spoken to believes they can overturn a 2-0 deficit in the Nou Camp. Though a few believe they can get a result that can rejuvenate the squad (and re-engage the fans) for the games that remain this season.We need a bit of passion. Its too late this time. But Im a football fan and an Arsenal fan. Theyre the best team in the world. Their front three is unbelievable in Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Its done now, as a contest. I just hope we give a good account of ourselves.Ive been to Munich and Monaco when weve been two goals behind, and weve gone close. If we get an early goal, you never know. Arsenal fans would prefer Leicester to win the Premier League rather than see Tottenham crowned champions Leicesters victory over Newcastle opened up a five-point gap to second-placed Tottenham in the Premier League title race, and an 11-point gap to Arsenal. No-one Ive met here in Barcelona thinks Arsenal can catch Leicester - but all of them are united in their support of the Foxes - just so long as it prevents their north London rivals claiming the title.Its too big a gap for us now, and we just arent in any sort of form to put a run together, says one. It would be great to see Leicester win it - a great story. Just so long as its not our noisy neighbours down the road! We will all be backing Leicester now.But I think Spurs will win it. And that kills me to say, but I think theyve got the easier run in. Of course Id rather see Leicester win it rather than Spurs, every day of the week. Itd be the first time in my lifetime that theyve finished above us, and it would be unbearable.Im quite enjoying seeing Chelsea and Man City below us, after all the millions theyve spent, but it hurts to see Spurs above us. Obviously Id rather see Leicester win the League rather than them. Wed never hear the end of it otherwise.
