Everton manager Roberto Martinez hails Bill Kenwright, club's transfers

Everton legend Peter Reid says John Stones deserves credit for his professionalism during the transfer window, with Chelsea ultimately failing to secure the young defender from Goodison Park.
Everton's transfer window was nothing short of a success according to their manager, Roberto Martinez.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has told ESPN FC that his club demonstrated real ambition in the transfer window and that he hopes the business they completed this summer will sustain another strong challenge in the Premier League.

Martinez inspired a concerted push for Champions League football during his first season at Goodison Park, coming up two points short of a top-four finish in 2013-14 but struggling to maintain that momentum last season.

The demands of Europa League football took...

Barcelona retain Power Rankings top spot, followed by Bayern Munich

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains Barcelona's transfer ban and their lack of depth because of that.
ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik breaks down how Luis Suarez's movement on and off the ball makes him such a threat for Barcelona.

In the second edition of the 2015-16 Power Rankings, the top three stay the same, but there's movement below them.

1. Barcelona (no change)

Lionel Messi has yet to score in La Liga this season, but Barca have still won their first two games. Most recently, Thomas Vermaelen -- remember him? -- was the hero with the winner vs. Malaga. The Belgian defender's crucial contribution came as part of the impressive form he has shown while filling in for the suspended Gerard Pique.

2. Bayern Munich (no...

W2W4 Euro 2016 qualifiers: Wales and Iceland to seal progress?

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol previews Scotland's European Championship qualifier against Georgia where he feels it is a must win scenario for his country.

The international break is upon us; here are five things to watch as qualification for Euro 2016 begins again.

Can Wales claim qualification?

When the latest FIFA world rankings were announced, it could not be ignored that Wales were above England in the standings for the first time. It's a clear recognition of the remarkable year that Chris Coleman's Wales have had, and a further indication of how extraordinary their achievement of topping Group B is. Belgium are second in those rankings and...

Slovakia's quiet star Juraj Kucka set to surprise many at AC Milan

Juraj Kucka made the move to Milan to continue his career this summer.

When Liverpool considered signing Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka in the summer 2013, the Slovakian sounded quite excited. "That is good news. I can imagine what it would mean to wear the Liverpool shirt," he said. The move eventually didn't work out, but maybe that was for the better: Kucka is a self-confessed Manchester United fan whose biggest idol has always been Paul Scholes.

Kucka named Scholes as his role model on his own website and never missed an opportunity to hail the Old Trafford legend....

Fans suffer as Socceroos' soap opera plays out ahead of World Cup qualifier

Australia head coach Ange Postecoglou sits down for an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Jason Dasey to discuss the Socceroos upcoming World Cup qualifiers and rising star Tom Rogic.

This week's Socceroos camp has had all the markings of a soap opera. A plot twist came in the form of captain Mile Jedinak and star goalkeeper Mat Ryan withdrawing from the squad due to injury, but the real drama involved the ongoing power struggle between the governing body and the players' union.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) are bickering due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) expiring on June 30. This protracted row has, of course,...

Why the transfer market is a cult of promises, trickery and misdirection

The Exploding Heads run through the 10 strangest things that happened this transfer deadline day.
While transfer deadline day may have lacked a marquee signing, take a look at the more memorable moments as Manchester United's saga with David De Gea came to a solution while Southampton bolstered their defence.

Before the transfer window had even closed, the plans were in motion. There would be a protest outside the Emirates Stadium at 7pm sharp on Tuesday. Arsenal's fans had had enough. They finished 12 points behind the Premier League champions last season. Now Arsene Wenger had gone through the entire summer and -- uniquely, among the top five leagues in Europe -- he had not bought a single outfield player. Enough was enough. Out went the rallying cry: #wengerout

Things were only slightly better...
