ARSENAL/ENGLAND:

QPR got a bit fighty at half time of their match against Palace. Apparently it helped.

The Women's Super League is starting, and Arsenal's manager is preparing the Arsenal Ladies for a better finish than they saw in 2014. In what's sure to be a delight to narrative pushers everywhere, Arsenal Ladies finished fourth last year.

Arseblog looks at why Premier League teams are doing poorly in Europe, and talks about who needs to fix the problem.

Meanwhile, the last English team left in Europe prepares to take on Dynamo Kyiv tonight, holding a slim 2-1 lead from the first leg.

EUROPE:

Juventus brushed aside Dortmund to ease into the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

All Gareth Bale apparently needs to succeed at Real Madrid is for Cristiano Ronaldo to leave.

I have a new favorite international team.

MLS:

Montreal Impact are half way to the CONCACAF Champions League final after beating Alajuelense of Costa Rica 2-0 in Montreal.

The money just rolls right in: MLS has a new snack food sponsor.

People always talk about the Timbers Army and about Seattle's Emerald City Supporters and the great stadium environments in Portland and Seattle, but in all honesty, I'm far more impressed with what Kansas City has done. They went from the Kansas City Wizards, playing in front of literally dozens of people at Arrowhead Stadium, to being Sporting Kansas City, with one of the nicest stadiums in MLS and a fantastic atmosphere, led by the KC Cauldron, that rivals Cascadia on game day.
