Luis Suarez and former Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto were not among the nominees for the FIFA Ballon d'Or and Coach of the Year awards.

This week's roundup of the biggest and most unusual news stories takes in controversy over award winners and nominees, coaches hitting back and a "fairy-tale" return for one player.

TOP FIVE STORIES

1. Suarez snubbed, Klinsmann boosted (Tuesday, Oct. 28)

When FIFA released the contenders for the 2014 Ballon d'Or (at 4am local time, in order to ensure award partner France Football was the only publication with the 23-man list in print), it was a name that was not included that was the most interesting...

Who is the true boss in Manchester: Sergio Aguero or Angel Di Maria?

Philadelphia Union midfielder Maurice Edu joins the FC guys discussing whether United or City need a win more in the Manchester derby.

Angel Di Maria is the fittest player at Manchester United. Sergio Aguero is the most pivotal man at Manchester City. Friends and national teammates, enemies this Sunday, both will bring an Argentine flavour to this enormous rivalry that is stealing all the attention of the 10th matchday of the Premier League. But which one will be the boss of Manchester?

Aguero has scored nine goals in nine league matches. True, he scored four of them against Tottenham, but the ex-Independiente and Atletico Madrid...

MLS Playoffs: Assessing the four conference semifinals

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner breaks down the MLS playoff brackets and predicts which teams will go all the way to the MLS Cup final.

Welcome to the MLS playoffs proper. The elimination games are out of the way and after a few nerve-wracking moments for the two play-in game hosts, Dallas and New York, the results mean that the four conference semifinals will feature the top four teams from those respective conferences.

Of course, there's a fair argument that this should always have been the case. The FIFA break that will follow the second legs of the conference semifinals only serves to highlight how crammed and awkward this...

#FCdebate: For which club is the Manchester derby bigger?

The FC TV team believes this game is bigger for City but what do you think? Vote now!

On Sunday, blue host red in Manchester as rivals City meet United at the Etihad Stadium. The home side will start as favourites but are they as clearly in the ascendancy now as they were two weeks ago? 

Since a 4-1 home win vs. Tottenham on Oct. 18, Manuel Pellegrini's men have relinquished a two-goal lead to draw at CSKA Moscow in the Champions League and have been beaten in the league by West Ham and in the Capital One Cup by Newcastle.

Furthermore, if Chelsea beat Queens Park Rangers on...

Raul always relished a challenge, and the New York Cosmos are just that

According to ESPN FC reports, Real Madrid and Spain legend Raul has signed a multi-year deal with the New York Cosmos of the NASL.

He was just 17 and he was asleep on the top deck of the bus. The bus was heading up the A2 motorway towards Zaragoza, where Raul Gonzalez Blanco was about to make his debut. If the kid was nervous, a teenager about to play for the biggest club in the world, he didn't show it. "I couldn't have done that," admitted then-Madrid manager Jorge Valdano, but he already knew this kid was different. Valdano had told him that he was thinking of including him and wanted to know what he thought. "If you want...

Manchester United rue failure to land Man City star Vincent Kompany

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract with the Premier League champions, while Javi Garcia is reportedly on his way to Zenit St. Petersburg.
Vincent Kompany and Manchester City look to defend their Prem title.
Vincent Kompany has become one of the finest defenders in the world at City.

Back in 2008, Manchester United legend Mark Hughes handed local rivals City one of their greatest ever players when he signed a 22-year-old Vincent Kompany for what now seems a laughable sum of just six million pounds.

When you consider that Brazilian striker Jo (now back in his homeland with Atletico Mineiro) had arrived for a fee of around 19 million pounds a month or so previous, the Kompany coup was a rare bargain at a time when Hughes spent almost 300 million pounds on players in a just year-and-a-half....
