Europa League final between Sevilla and Dnipro has plenty of intrigue

The ESPN FC experts discuss the chances of Sevilla making history if they win the UEFA Europa League final against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

The Europa League is unloved by many. Judging by the attitude of certain English clubs towards the end of the Premier League season, it is a competition some would prefer to avoid.

However, Europe's secondary continental competition can make reputations for managers. Andre Villas-Boas made his splash in 2011 when winning Dublin's final with Porto crowned a Treble. Consider Rafa Benitez's determination to win the competition with Napoli to follow his 2013 victory with Chelsea. He did not achieve...

Premier League season may be one we come to regret

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

Every season, the time warp is the same. When the final week arrives, when the dust begins to settle, what happened at the start seems an impossibly long time ago. Only 10 months, as the crow flies, but the journey is never straight. It twists and turns, and in doing so, it contorts our perceptions. It is another time, another world.

So vast is the sweep of the season that it is easy to forget everything that has happened; it is hard to believe it all did. It seems so long ago that Louis van Gaal...

James Milner's versatility makes him an elite player without all the fanfare

The ESPN FC panel discuss a few top players in the Premier League this season.

If you were to present James Milner with a truckload of bricks and a mixer full of cement, he would build you a house. It would not be the greatest house on the street, but it would have a roof and four walls, it would not admit draughts and it would never leak in the winter.

If you were to present Milner with a guitar and an evocative reminder of a lover lost, he would write you a ballad. It would not be the greatest ballad you've ever heard, but it would have three verses and a chorus, it would...

Barcelona hero Dani Alves worth his weight in gold amid contract impasse

Dani Alves says he will wait until after the Champions League final to decide his future.

On Monday afternoon Dani Alves was being, well, Dani Alves.

In a news conference during which he frankly documented the breakdown of his relationship with the Barcelona board, the Brazilian accused the club of a "lack of respect," tore into Madrid-based sports daily Marca and even danced a jig to his own singing.

As ESPN FC's Dermot Corrigan reported, it was a remarkable performance.

Guangzhou coach Fabio Cannavaro faces first big test in ACL round of 16

Fabio Cannavaro faces his first big test as coach of Guangzhou Evergrande in Wednesday's ACL second leg tie against Seongnam FC.

Fabio Cannavaro was the coolest of defenders and still looks like he could pull on the famous blue shirt of Italy and do a job on the field. The suited 41-year-old looks pretty dapper on the sidelines too though could have been forgiven for losing it big time last Wednesday as Guangzhou Evergrande lost to a last-minute penalty of dubious origins at the home of South Korean side Seongnam FC.

At least it was a first leg of the round of 16 stage. There is still time to turn it around. Cannavaro has...

Brendan Rodgers struggling to show progress at Liverpool

The ESPN FC crew recap Liverpool's performance against Stoke City, where Steve Nicol says Liverpool have been extremely poor this season.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits that his time at Anfield could come to an end if the club owners see it fit.

In explaining why he had left Raheem Sterling on the bench for Liverpool's final league game of the season, Brendan Rodgers commented that, because of the speculation swirling around his young forward, there were "other players who were more focused on the game." Even with the ongoing contract saga enveloping him, one has to wonder exactly what was in Sterling's mind to make it less focused than the XI that went on to lose 6-1 to Stoke.

"I've always said if the owners want me to go, I go," said Rodgers...
