Tight trousers: Bayern stutter on, Madrid stumble on, the Ballon d'Or rumbles on, and Genoa and Chievo move their men on

Well we could hardly ignore the big stories this week, could we? Here, on your all-new On The Continent, we run the rule across why two of Europe's big beasts continue to struggle for form, and pontificate on which manager is likely to go first (clue: he's Spanish).


Later, James provides us with an update on the Cristiano Ronaldo allegations and how they're being reported in Italy, and there's a word for Milan who, unlike Juventus, appear to be quietly going about their business. 


There's loads more besides, including two managerial sackings in Italy, the latest on the Ballon d'Or runners and riders, and events at the top and bottom of Ligue Un. Mais oui!
