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 2015-16, 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 each of their opening 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 change)

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

Liverpool legend Ian Rush has said that qualifying for Euro 2016 is an achievement, not only for Welsh football, but for the country itself.

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. Eventually, the move 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...

Gareth Bale and Wales can deliver a lasting legacy for Gary Speed

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on Premier League's spending this transfer window, if Gareth Bale will ever join Manchester United and more.

Wales are two games from destiny. The chance to qualify for a first major tournament since the 1958 World Cup is here. First, on Thursday, a trip to Cyprus, and then on Sunday, at the Cardiff City Stadium, they host Israel. Two wins will take them to the Euro 2016 finals with an unassailable 20 points from qualifying.

After only narrowly beating Andorra 2-1 in their opening match, and drawing 0-0 with Bosnia, a 0-0 draw with group favourites Belgium in November set the tone. Winning 3-0 in Israel...
