Victor Valdes living in sad exile at Manchester United

The ESPN FC crew look at Victor Valdes' difficult situation at Manchester United.

Victor Valdes says that goalkeepers are always alone, emotionally and physically distanced from their teammates.

He admits he's shy, an introvert who likes solitude, and that one of the reasons he loves windsurfing is the feeling of being out there on the sea a long way from land where no one can bother him except the occasional fish swimming past.

Yet the scene was still a sad, lonely one -- even for him -- and the message felt a little like a cry for help. Or for comprehension at least.

Swansea, Sassuolo, Iceland bucking the 'super club' and big-nation trend

Northern Ireland qualified for the European Championships for the first time in their history with a 3-1 win over Greece.

This is football's age of the elite. With every passing year, the game grows ever more centralised, ever more hierarchical. The revenue streams of the world's most famous teams swell with television rights and merchandising deals. Every prawn sandwich sold in every executive box stretches the gap between them and the rest. The chasm is always getting a little more yawning.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchesters City and United, Chelsea and Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus:...

Ecuador stun Argentina, Alexis Sanchez inspires Chile against Brazil

Argentina's World Cup qualifying campaign got off to a poor start with a shock defeat at home to Ecuador.

Opening defeats for Brazil against Chile and for Argentina at home to Ecuador -- welcome to the most competitive World Cup qualification campaign around.

Since its establishment in 1996, the marathon format in South America, with all 10 nations playing each other home and away, has resulted in a massive rise in standards. With regular competitive games and guaranteed income, the less traditional football nations have been able to grow.

Ecuador had their best ever World Cup in 2006, as did Paraguay...

Theo Walcott is central for Arsenal. Can he be the same for England?

After Arsenal's resounding 3-0 win over Manchester United, the question is whether they can maintain that level over the course of a season.
ESPN FC's Stewart Robson talks about Arsenal's centre forward problem and the fact that Walcott is should not play up front.

It has been a nine-year journey for a player who has not gone anywhere. After arriving as a 16-year-old from Southampton in 2006, Theo Walcott is still at Arsenal, still the same unfailingly polite sprinter and one who many have argued is neither progressing nor regressing.

Walcott has always seemed emblematic of Arsenal: forever young, even when he was not particularly young anymore, and undoubtedly good but without the consistent brilliance that greatness requires. He epitomised the kind of player...
