Arsène Wenger’s detractors at Arsenal showcase appetite for the sack race — Shortly before the final whistle at the Emirates on Saturday evening, an Arsenal fan walked up to the press box with a sign that read "Wenger Out". It was one of the more measured reactions to the Manchester United defeat. Arsène Wenger has been a great manager; recently, though, he has needed to be a formidable stoic too.

World athletics first for Doha but issue of migrant workers mars bid — It was impossible to hear the sound of boxes being ticked - or egos being massaged - as Doha's bid team for the 2019 World Athletics Championships gave their final presentation to the International Association of Athletics Associations in Monaco on Tuesday lunchtime.

Qatar chosen to host 2019 World Athletics Championships — Qatar, currently embroiled in controversy over the award of the 2022 World Cup, has now been chosen to host the 2019 World Athletics Championships. Doha will be the first Gulf city to host theevent and was widely seen as the frontrunner having just missed out on the 2017 championships to London.

Qatar’s sporting portfolio likely to expand unless someone takes a stand — Stop me if you have heard this one before. As a sport gathers to decide the host of its global championship, questions are raised about the favourite. The country's record on workers' rights is abysmal. Those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender risk prison.

Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo punishes Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley — After the rumours came the rout. Before kick-off there were stories of 20 Cowboys players missing a midnight curfew after dinner at the Tower of London and the team were also said to be concerned about the off-the-field activities of the star receiver Dez Bryant.

Even Madrid’s magicians owe a nod to Bould set-piece statistics — As the stone-washed YouTube footage of Arsenal's 1988-89 season review spools into action, my notebook fills with ticks and crosses. Tick: set-piece goal. Cross: one from open play. Exactly 82 seconds in, after Jim Rosenthal has explained that George Graham's side were 16-1 for the title, Wimbledon's John Fashanu heads a free-kick past John Lukic.

Sam Warburton: ‘Sometimes I struggle to shampoo my head it’s hurting so bad’ — Even for someone of Sam Warburton's stature there was no tip-off or discreet wink. That is not Warren Gatland's way. Instead, like the rest of the Wales players, Warburton endured an anxious wait for a text message that arrived over Sunday lunch. "Congratulations," it read. "You have been selected for the autumn internationals.

Chris Tomlinson cut adrift from lottery funding after calamitous season — The former UK long jump record holder Chris Tomlinson was the big loser as British Athletics announced its lottery funded athletes for 2015 on Monday but the performance director Neil Black insisted such "really tough decisions" are an inevitable consequence of focusing on medal prospects for the 2016 Olympics.

Harry Redknapp’s Ford Capri of a career heads towards its final service — Even on that below-zero day in December 1982 when Harry Redknapp began his managerial career with a 9-0 hammering at Lincoln, the crevices and fissures under his eyes were forming. Now they have deepened, hardened, become sallow. That's what 31 years and more than 1,300 matches - nearly half in the Premier League - do to a manager.

Detroit Lions in the driving seat against Atlanta Falcons at Wembley — Around 84,000 people will swarm into Wembley on Sundaylunchtime to watch the Atlanta Falcons face the Detroit Lions, another sellout for the second of three NFL matches to be staged in London this season. And, for a change, it might be more of contest than a rout.
