Cheryshev plots Barca downfall before continuing Real Madrid journey

Denis Cheryshev, who made his Real Madrid debut under Jose Mourinho, is tipped for a bright future at the club and faces Barcelona with Villarreal in the Copa del Rey semifinals.

Of the 761 players who went to the World Cup in Brazil with their national teams last summer, 760 had a chance to take part -- but not Denis Cheryshev.

He was invited by Russia coach Fabio Capello to travel to the tournament even though he wasn't formally included in the squad. That was a very unusual way to spend the holidays, but the winger didn't hesitate for a second. It was his chance to make an impression on the Italian coach and become an integral part of his plans.

Tim Sherwood and passion may just be enough to keep Aston Villa afloat

A first win in three months gives some muscle to Aston Villa's push for Premier League survival.
Tim Sherwood was the centre of attention once again on Tuesday night as his Aston Villa side beat West Brom 2-1.

Did you see Aston Villa's dramatic 2-1 victory over West Brom on Tuesday night? You might have caught a glimpse of it during the 90-minute Tim Sherwood live telecast that was beamed around the world.

It was the author Terry Pratchett who first came up with the concept of "narrativium," the mysterious sixth element (the fifth element is surprise) in his "Discworld" that twists fate to create good stories. Because of narrativium, so the theory goes, a million-to-one shot nearly always works.

Lionel Messi voted ESPN FC Player of the Month for February

The ESPN FC crew believe Lionel Messi is the front-runner for February's Player of the Month, but question the omission of in-form Wolfsburg striker, Bas Dost.

Europe's top performers for February were whittled down to a three-man shortlist in consultation with WhoScored.com and ESPN FC's writers.

Lionel Messi, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were those in contention, despite the vociferous protestations from Craig Burley that Bas Dost should've been included for the February award. And, for the second time this season, Barcelona's No. 10 has been named ESPN FC's Player of the Month.

Messi's second victory comes just as his first did: in a landslide. The...

Peru's poor away record the first piece of business for new boss Gareca

Argentine Ricardo Gareca is charged with leading Peru to their first World Cup since 1982.
Argentine Ricardo Gareca is charged with leading Peru to their first World Cup since 1982.

There are now six Argentine coaches in charge of the ten South American nations --- and there would seem to be little doubt that the last one to be announced faces the most difficult task.

Ricardo Gareca was unveiled on Monday as the new coach of Peru, the team which has not qualified for the World Cup since 1982 and seems to have gone backwards while others on the continent have made progress.

An illustration of the size of the challenge he is facing comes from recent results in the Copa Libertadores,...

ESPN FC Player of the Month -- Messi, Robben or Ribery?

The ESPN FC crew compare Arjen Robben's remarkable season to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. These were the only three to win the ESPN FC Player of the Month award prior to the month of January, when our poll was overrun by Newcastle supporters and Remy Cabella's name was added to the list. Newcastle's French attacker won't have the chance to repeat, but Messi does have the opportunity to keep the list of recipients a short one.

Europe's top performers in February have been whittled to a three-man short list in consultation with WhoScored.com...

West Ham must keep faith with Sam Allardyce amid poor run of form

Sam Allardyce is coming under heavy pressure after a run of one win in seven.

Life isn't brilliant for Sam Allardyce and West Ham at the moment. They haven't won in a month, have only secured one victory in their past ten Premier League games and in that time they also apologetically limped out of the FA Cup, beaten 4-0 by West Brom.

Little wonder there's the increasing sense that Allardyce will no longer be West Ham manager in the summer, when his contract expires, with apparently no discussion of a new deal from either Big Sam himself or club owners David Sullivan and David...
