Jose Mourinho's 'spin' doesn't hide the hard work ahead for Man United

The conversation gets heated between the FC guys when talking about whether or not this season can be considered a success by Man United standards.

Rafa Benitez famously commented that "Football is a lie." I wouldn't go quite that far, but it's pretty obvious to me that so much of the game is "spin." Often, the very same event, viewed from different perspectives, can be read and defined in so many different ways.

Watching Jose Mourinho after Man United won the Europa League drove the point home. It felt as if he was an actor in someone else's play. I don't mean it in a negative way, either. He has little choice. We like very simple, black-and-white...

Juve, Madrid on top before Champions League final; Man United a new entry

Watch some of the best moments from Juve's raising of their 33rd Serie A trophy, as well as some locker room celebrations.
Real Madrid celebrated winning their first La Liga title since 2012 with fans on an open top bus parade in the Spanish capital.
The conversation gets heated between the FC guys when talking about whether or not this season can be considered a success by Man United standards.

The top two each wrapped a league title last weekend, Next stop Cardiff, via Shaka Hislop's latest Power Rankings!

1. Juventus (no change)

A 3-0 win against Crotone confirmed what, in truth, most of us have expected all season: Juventus are champions of Italy for the sixth straight game. With two parts of a treble complete, only Real Madrid stand between Max Allegri's men and footballing immortality.

2. Real Madrid (no change)

With Barcelona poised to take advantage of any slip, Madrid...

Billy Heavner's life in limbo in Major League Soccer as a 'pool goalkeeper'

With roughly a third of the MLS season gone, Paul Mariner presents the top 10 goals of the campaign thus far.

Billy Heavner is in goalkeeper limbo.

The Landisville, Pennsylvania, native is officially an MLS player and has a contract with the league to prove it. Every week he trains with Sporting Kansas City and benefits from most of the professional accoutrements that entails.

But Heavner isn't officially on Kansas City's roster. In fact, he is a man without a team at all -- that is until a general manager somewhere decides he has a goalkeeper emergency and needs cover. Maybe there has been a glut of...

Premier League alternative awards: Moyes, Zaza, Traore, others 'honoured'

The FC crew recall the defining moments that stuck out for them during the 2016-17 Premier League season.

Adam Hurrey looks back with an irreverent eye at the season that was in England's top flight and hands out some tongue-in-cheek prizes.

Most beleaguered manager: David Moyes

Once again, the Premier League was littered with exhausted, discarded managers. Swansea managed to go through two beaten-looking men -- the dignified but doomed Francesco Guidolin and the confident Bob Bradley, who went down wasting his time defending the abbreviation "PK" -- before the earnest authority of Paul Clement guided...

Ajax's recipe for success: Ridiculously young players and a brilliant coach

Gab Marcotti describes the security measures for the Europa League and Champions League finals after Monday's terror attack.
Ajax head coach Peter Bosz admits he is inspired by Johan Cruyff's philosophy ahead of the Europa League final.
Despite losing to Lyon, Ajax and their fans were in the dancing spirit after sealing a spot in the Europa League final.

I've never seen the Amsterdam Arena as happy as the other night when Ajax played Lyon. The stadium opened in 1996, exactly when Ajax's good days were ending. It's a low-atmosphere bowl in an out-of-town business park, a bad imitation of an outdated American model.

But that night, an absurdly young Ajax team hammered Lyon 4-1 in the Europa League semifinal on the way to the final against Manchester United in Stockholm on May 24. The crowd could hardly believe it. Old fat guys like me were singing...
