Indian Super League and I-League merger is a compelling possibility

The Indian Super League is back, with Atletico de Kolkata the reigning champions.

One half of the football infrastructure in India seems to possess everything the other does not.

The new all kicking and dreaming Indian Super League (ISL) has the money, fans, glamour, profile and the stars, while I-League seemingly must do without. The only attractions the low-key latter tournament has according to one recent newspaper article are history and legacy; the very things the ISL lacks. No surprise, then, that there is serious talk of the two competitions merging in the not-too-distant...

Keylor Navas, Toni Kroos and Marcelo make alternative Madrid derby XI

The ESPN FC panel talk about Cristiano Ronaldo equaling Raul's record for scoring the most goals for Real Madrid.

The first Madrid derby of the season is finally upon us. On Sunday evening, Atletico Madrid will host neighbours Real Madrid in a match that supporters from both teams have been anticipating since the season started.

While Atletico's week wasn't exactly what they hoped it would be, Real Madrid overcame a surprising 0-0 draw at home to Malaga in La Liga with a comfortable win against Malmo in the Champions League.

Coaches Diego Simeone and Rafael Benitez rotated a few players in their respective midweek...

Atletico players outweigh Galacticos six to five in Madrid select XI

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone says his side will bounce back from the UCL defeat to Benfica when they face Real Madrid.

Atletico Madrid versus Real Madrid is a game that divides families, a city and classes. Atleti's fans loathe Real Madrid -- and with good reason. They are the upstarts from uptown with the cool clothes and designer haircut, plying their trade in the city's plush business district.

Los Rojiblancos are the working man's team, with a run-down Vicente Calderon ground situated in a humble neighbourhood on the banks of the Manzanares River.

Despite not possessing anywhere near the same resources as their...

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Arsenal manager feels pressure to deliver results, as one of the few managers in the EPL whose job always seems secure.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal spoke ahead of his side's clash against Arsenal.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he is a different type of manager to Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson, but has achieved everything he has wanted to achieve in his managerial career.
Arsene Wenger admits Louis van Gaal's success at Manchester United has been "no surprise" to him, as his Arsenal team prepare to face United this weekend

Two clubs with 16 Premier League titles between them renew their rivalry on Sunday as Arsenal host Manchester United. ESPN FC takes a look at the five biggest questions ahead of the match.

Can Arsenal overcome their mental block regarding United?

Manchester United don't quite enjoy the same hold over Arsene Wenger as do Chelsea and Jose Mourinho. Arsenal won at Old Trafford in the FA Cup last season and they beat United in the Premier League in 2011, so this isn't a generation-long hex.

But still,...

Vasco da Gama can avoid relegation with attack-minded boss Jorginho

Jorginho is Vasco's third coach this campaign and he may just pull off a relegation miracle before the season is done.

Last Wednesday night, 3-0 down from the first leg, Vasco da Gama fielded a reserve side for their Brazilian Cup quarterfinal tie against Sao Paulo.

Supporters of rival Rio de Janeiro clubs enjoyed themselves. There was a joke going round. "Vasco's game tonight is going to be cancelled," I was informed by a fan of Fluminense. "They won't be able to put a side out. How can they field a reserve team when they don't even have a first team?"

The joke has lost a bit of its traction in the last couple...

Atletico vs. Real is La Liga's game of the season so far

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone is confident his side will shake off their 2-1 UEFA Champions League defeat to Benfica and focus on Sunday's La Liga clash with Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 500th and 501st goals of this career to give Real Madrid a 2-0 win over 10-man Malmo in the Champions League, matching Raul's 323 Real goals in the process

And so the Madrid derby rolls round again, the match that Real Madrid's Alvaro Arbeloa this week described as the game of the season ... "for them." It was a line offered casually, but it was calculated too; Arbeloa's deadpan delivery was designed to make the dismissiveness all the more damaging, and it didn't go uncontested. "Arbeloa hasn't watched us much recently," responded Atletico Madrid captain Gabi, who added: "That was before."

Before, Real Madrid fans held up a banner in the south stand...
