Steven Gerrard, from Liverpool to L.A., is still just a boy who loves football

Hollywood-style start: Gerrard scored on his MLS debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy against the San Jose Earthquakes on July 17.

STEVEN GERRARD TAKES his seat in the front row of a private box at StubHub Center and settles in to watch his first game as a stateside member of the Los Angeles Galaxy. It's July Fourth, and the stadium is sold out, 27,000 strong and festive. The Riot Squad, one of the more notable L.A. supporters groups, has been well-refreshed by the truckload of California beer that Gerrard bought them for their tailgate -- veteran move, that -- accompanied by a hand-signed letter: "I look forward to meeting...

Mourinho's monumental task: Helping Chelsea retain the Premier League title

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.
The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets, including whether or not Chelsea are still favourites to defend their Premier League Title.

It might have been an underhand trick to undermine a rival, it might have been an attempt to hide his genuine concerns about the move or it might just have been honest analysis. Either way, Jose Mourinho refused to evade questions about former Chelsea attacker Kevin De Bruyne's anticipated move to Manchester City in the way the Portuguese might have.

The 24-year-old Belgian left Stamford Bridge for Wolfsburg just a few months after Mourinho's return in 2013, and did so after making just nine first-team...

Champions League qualifiers already facing high stakes

The ESPN FC crew preview the Champions League odds for this upcoming campaign, but Craig Burley is not having it with these early predictions.

For many of the teams entering the Champions League in this week's third qualifying round, the domestic season is yet to start. Prepared or not, though, a clutch of teams entering the league route part of the draw will see a large part of their seasons hinge on the next two games.

Shakhtar underdogs against big-spending Fenerbahce

Few ties are bigger than the one commencing in Istanbul on Tuesday between Fenerbahce and Shakhtar Donetsk. Returning after a two-year ban from UEFA club competition, Fener...

Lucas Alario and Jurgen Damm the players to watch in Copa Libertadores

Argentine giants River Plate have touched down in Mexico ahead of the first leg of the Copa Libertadores final against Tigres.

The first leg of the 2015 Copa Libertadores final will take place at the Estadio Universitario in Nuevo León on Wednesday, with Tigres UANL hosting River Plate. Tigres are hoping to become the first ever Mexican side to lift the Libertadores trophy, while their Argentinean opponents will be seeking their third success in the competition and their first since 1996.

Both teams feature a core of seasoned professionals but there were two recently arrived young players who made a strong impact for...

Arsenal need a better striker than Olivier Giroud to win the league

Olivier Giroud is set to pen a new deal that would keep him with the Gunners through 2018.

Being a football fan is a constant battle between logic and hope. Most of us are perfectly balanced, can recognise a good player -- and even more readily, a bad player -- when we see one. We can criticise our team just as clearly as any other, and leave blind loyalty at the door when it comes to objectively assessing the players in front of us.

But sometimes logic is swept aside, especially during preseason. We all know these games mean nothing, really. They're extended practice sessions that people...

How Chicago traded Didier Drogba's rights and ended up with Gilberto

The ESPN FC crew go through Didier Drogba's MLS options amid talk of a move to Montreal Impact.

Chicago Fire boss Frank Yallop has every reason to be upset and to curse at the fickle soccer Gods for what they've thrown his way. For the second year running, he had a marquee player in his sights and ready to sign, only to see him slip from his grasp.

Last year, Chicago was poised to sign Jermaine Jones, only for the U.S. international to head to the New England Revolution thanks to a league-mandated blind draw. This time around, the Fire had former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba in its crosshairs,...
