Macintosh: Wilshere must move to play


Arsenal's Jack Wilshere must move on loan to resurrect his career

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer brings us the latest from the social media world, including Lucas Perez's apparent London connection.
Jack Wilshere has not played enough to command a place in the XI.

There's not much of it about in football these days, but thank goodness that some common sense has broken out at Arsenal. According to ESPN FC sources, all parties concerned have concluded that Jack Wilshere's short-term future would be best served by an immediate loan move away from the Emirates. One of the most promising English footballers of his generation needs the chance to rescue his career.

Just 37 fleeting minutes of Wilshere in an Arsenal shirt off the bench so far this season have proved...

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Las Palmas win; Atletico and Valencia struggle

Zinedine Zidane admitted his side were far from brilliant during their hard fought 2-1 victory over Celta Vigo in La Liga.

On a weekend when favorites Barcelona and Real Madrid earned hard-fought wins and Las Palmas continued to impress, here is what we learned from La Liga ahead of the international break.

Morata on target for Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata scored his first goal for Real Madrid since returning to his former club this summer from Juventus in Saturday's 2-1 home win over Celta Vigo.

Manuel Pellegrini at Hebei China Fortune reflects CSL's foreign focus

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts discuss the news of top coaches such as Manuel Pellegrini and Tony Adams moving to China for new coaching challenges.

Manuel Pellegrini's European coaching career has been a journey from the oldest of football money to the newest. After Real Madrid, the Chilean went to Qatar-owned Malaga, United Arab Emirates-owned Manchester City and the Chilean has now arrived in China, the latest big spender on the football block.

But spare a thought for Li Tie, the man Pellegrini replaces at Hebei China Fortune. The former Everton and Sheffield United player is still just 39 and was developing into China's most promising young...

Simon Mignolet's solid day, Swansea woe leads weekend's Heroes & Villains

The much maligned Simon Mignolet came through for Liverpool on Saturday with an uncharacteristically nerveless performance between the sticks. He was there to punch away corners, he was there to palm away free-kicks, and when he made a world class save from Toby Alderweireld's second half header, he could have been forgiven for doing a lap of honour around White...
