Time for Brendan Rodgers to take drastic action at Liverpool

ESPN FC's Craig Burley thinks Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers has been found out and believes he is close to being forced out of Anfield.

Liverpool must have returned to Selhurst Park thinking that whatever happened, at least it couldn't be worse than the last time they were there. Wrong. It was worse.

That extraordinary 3-3 draw vs. Crystal Palace in May will be remembered for decades to come. It was a spectacular humiliation, a dramatic three-goal collapse from the league's most exciting team against a mid-table side with nothing for which to play. And yet its place in history, like Denis Law's backheel to "relegate" Manchester United,...

Chelsea offer no respite to old hero Roberto Di Matteo at Schalke

Roberto Di Matteo speaks ahead of Schalke's match against his former club.

What a difference a few centimetres make. That was the margin between Naldo's late header for Wolfsburg at the Veltins Arena on Saturday afternoon hitting the crossbar -- as it did -- or going in, which would have seen Schalke shell a three-goal lead against direct rivals for a Champions League spot.

Instead, after holding on for a 3-2 victory, Roberto Di Matteo can exhale and look back on four home wins out of four since he took charge exactly seven weeks ago. The pause to look at that record is...

How attacking football's evolution has impacted defending

Relive the best goals of week 12 in the Bundesliga, highlighted by Mario Gotze's long-range effort.

Last week, I found myself at the Sugar Club in Dublin, sharing a red sofa with Jonathan Wilson, editor of The Blizzard, and Philippe Auclair, the London correspondent for France Football. The point of the evening was that we would field questions from the auditorium about our respective football cultures or the game in general.

Chatting among ourselves first, on a day of countless friendlies all across Europe, I said it would be interesting to see if Germany coach Joachim Low was going to play...

With the Copa America draw now set, the pressure is on for Chile

The 2015 Copa America draw was held on Monday night and the host nation Chile appear to be in a favourable group.

At the draw for next year's Copa America, the point was made by CONMEBOL president Juan Angel Napout that Chile were among the pioneers of the tournament. It is undeniable. Four countries competed in the inaugural version of the competition back in 1916; Uruguay, who won it and have since gone on to win a record 15 titles; Argentina, who have 14; Brazil, who have 8; and Chile, who have none.

In almost a hundred years of history, seven nations have claimed the world's oldest continental crown. Peru,...

Liverpool's current crisis could be costly for Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers rues the lack of confidence in his side following their 3-1 drubbing by Crystal Palace.

LONDON -- Crystal Palace in May signalled the death of a dream. This time, Liverpool's reality check was perhaps more brutal. Back then, the Reds and Brendan Rodgers could celebrate exceeding expectations, but this result demonstrated this will be a season on a rather different edge.

Three straight Premier League losses in a row, four in total -- results that can only point to a mounting crisis, and the performances during those matches spell out a yet bleaker picture.

"If anything I'm disappointed...

Arsenal will remain in limbo until Arsene Wenger leaves

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley questions the leadership at the Emirates and believes Arsenal's 'spineless' board are at the heart of the problems.

There's a half-decent argument to be made that Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday wasn't, in isolation, Arsene Wenger's fault. It's tough to blame Wenger directly for Jack Wilshere expertly picking out David de Gea's chest with the goal at his mercy, for example. Or for Kieran Gibbs lashing the ball into his own net. Or for Aaron Ramsey looking like a shadow of the player he was last season.

But you can't treat that game as an isolated case. Not when, in the 26 games since United...
