#FCdebate -- Arsenal or Man United, who will finish higher?

The FC TV panel have their say and you can too. Vote now!

Arsenal and Manchester United go into Saturday's clash separated by one point in sixth and seventh place respectively in the Premier League table. The two clubs are perennial top four finishers but both have experienced indifferent form so far this season.

It seems that Chelsea and Manchester City are shoo-ins to claim Champions League spots on offer but who will grab the other two? Southampton and West Ham are currently flying high but can they sustain a challenge?

Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham...

Maidstone's night of FA Cup glory moves them closer to Wembley

Frannie Collin's two goals were the difference as Maidstone United stunned Stevenage.

MAIDSTONE, England -- The music is loud and the beer flows freely in the bar at Maidstone's Gallagher Stadium. And why not? After all, the small club, who play in the seventh tier of English football, have just sealed one of the greatest results in their history: A 2-1 FA Cup first-round replay victory over Stevenage, a side who play three divisions above them.

In the days before the biggest game of his career, manager Jay Saunders repeatedly referred to Maidstone as, "a family club," a statement...

Man United's injury crisis, confusion continues to hurt Louis van Gaal

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Alexis Nunes give us the latest on Angel Di Maria's ankle injury and what it means for Manchester United's clash with Arsenal.

Louis van Gaal was unable to provide an answer, although not by intention. On Thursday, after a week of worry about how long Daley Blind would be out for following his medial ligament injury with the Netherlands, the Manchester United manager prolonged that wait. He said they still wouldn't know until after another scan in 10 days' time. "It shall be a long story -- but not six months or something."

At the same time, the club's official Twitter account reported it could be close to six months....

Serie A: Why We Watch Football

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop join the #WhyWeWatchFootball discussion and give their picks for the leagues they like best.

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Here's James Horncastle on the history and class of Serie A.

It's easy to manage Arsenal ... isn't it?

The ESPN panel respond to your thoughts as to whether or not it is time for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal to part ways.

After his success with Manchester United on Football Manager 2014, we wondered if Iain Macintosh could repeat the trick with Arsenal in the game's 2015 version.


I arrive at London Colney with a spring in my step and nearly 50 million pounds available on the company credit card. This time last year, I won the title with a woefully unbalanced Manchester United team.

All I need to do at Arsenal is finish in the top four and maybe win a cup. And look at this squad! You forget sometimes just how...
