Premier League rules Deloitte rich list, so why isn't the league getting better?

Manchester United have risen to second in the Deloitte Annual Football Rich List.

Two things happened on Thursday. The first was predictable. The second was more of a surprise. To some extent, both explain each other.

The one we knew was coming was the release of the annual publication of Deloitte's so-called football rich list. It was topped, for the 10th year in a row, by Real Madrid -- another decima, of sorts, for the European champions -- but the most intriguing finding was lower down: half of the richest clubs in the world are in the Premier League. All 20 of the division's...

Coquelin must still prove to Arsenal that he is a long-term solution

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista, where he feels the centre back position may be well covered now for Arsene Wenger's side.

You cannot really blame Francis Coquelin for taking his time.

After all, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger took his time before giving Coquelin a proper chance in the first team. Coquelin is out of contract at the end of the season, he's been offered a new three year deal and Wenger says he's confident that Coquelin will sign and stay.

And on the back of one magnificent game at Manchester City, we've all decided Coquelin is the answer to all of Arsenal's problems in midfield. The trouble is that I'm...

Aston Villa chief executive targets top five position by 2020

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph was pleased to extend his contract with Villa.

Chief executive Tom Fox believes Aston Villa can close the gap on the Premier League's leading clubs, but has warned their rise will take time.

Villa issued a statement of intent over the weekend after tying England midfielder Fabian Delph to a new four-and-a-half year deal.

They have battled relegation for the past three seasons and American owner Randy Lerner, who has scaled back his investment, put the club on the market last year.

Fox, a former chief commercial officer at Arsenal, is keen to...

Juan Mata: Champions League hard to watch with Man United staying home

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal expected a difficult FA Cup tie, and got one against Cambridge United.

Juan Mata won the Champions League three years ago, but now he can barely watch the competition out of pure jealousy.

This season has been a strange one for Mata. His midweek schedule is filled with nights in front of the television. The Manchester United midfielder can see European football's biggest club competition unfolding right before his eyes, but he is unable to play any part in it.

And that annoys him.

"It's difficult to watch the games on TV every Tuesday and Wednesday," the United midfielder...

Bojan's injury is tragic but opens the door for other Stoke players to step up

Bojan Krkic's season-ending injury is a bitter blow for Stoke as the Spanish striker was enjoying a good first season in England.
 

Stoke travelled to Rochdale on Monday night desperate to avoid the kind of upset some of their high-flying Premier League colleagues endured over the weekend. A professional 4-1 win saw the Potters through to the fifth round of the FA Cup but news of Bojan Krkic's season-ending knee injury cut short any celebrations on what turned out to be a costly evening for the club.

Having put his side ahead with just three minutes on the clock with a sublime volley from 25 yards, Stoke fans took a collective...
