So Arsenal lost their Champions League match away to CSKA Moscow 1-0 on a free kick where Mad Jens was seriously screened and basically had no chance. Henry scored a perfectly legitimate goal to equalize at the end, but not only was it wrongly disallowed by the referee, he even booked TH14 for an intentional handball. Afterwards he was not pleased. A SEC Football level of refereeing mistake which cost Arsenal a point and gave CSKA Moscow an extra two. Arsenal didn't play very well in the cold weather and bad pitch, it was like they never really got going. To be fair CSKA played very well, and playing in their stadium is no joke apparently; hopefully Arsenal can win the return match in the friendly confines of their new home in 2 weeks and reassert themselves as group leaders.
All of the other big boys won, and Chel$ea beat Barca 1-0 on a great piece of skill from Didier Drogba in an otherwise disappointing match. Barca looked like they really miss Eto'o, and Ronaldinho played as poorly as I have ever seen him play.
Last week marked Arsene Wenger's 10 year anniversay at Arsenal Football Club, so this week's AJBW celebrates his 10 years in charge of the club. There's also a BBC piece on his tenure here. He may very well be my favorite person in sport, and for my money he is the best manager in the world, period. Enjoy.
