Roque Santa Cruz's ballyhooed arrival to Manchester City ended with the Paraguayan being loaned out three separate times.

Plenty of players have gone from small clubs to big clubs in their Premier League careers, yet five failures and five successes stand out among all the rest.

Failures:

Scott Parker -- Charlton to Chelsea, 2004

When you're a young player doing good things with a small team, it's hard not to be seduced by the idea of a big club with big ambitions and big, big cheques, if they come calling. Scott Parker was in the form of his, and many other people's lives, in 2003-04 with Charlton. Such form...

Bayern Munich return to Bundesliga action in first place

Matthias Sammer, Bayern Munich sporting director, and influential midfielder Xabi Alonso discuss the resumption of the Bundesliga season after the winter break.

The German season is set to resume, which means defending Bundesliga champions and Power Rankings leaders Bayern Munich will return to competitive action.  

1. Bayern Munich (no change)

By now you know the drill: Bayern haven't played but stay top by virtue of no other side having done enough to usurp them. But, wait, the Bundesliga resumes this weekend and, furthermore, the runaway leaders face a tough test away at Wolfsburg. Are Pep Guardiola's side in for a surprise?

2. Real Madrid (no change)

Capital One Cup balancing act for Spurs and Chelsea, but success is key

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho expresses his displeasure with a particular Sky analyst and defends his star striker Diego Costa.

If last weekend's incredible upsets suggested that reports of the death of the magic of the FA Cup had been greatly exaggerated, midweek saw the League Cup reassert itself with two thrilling semifinals. This week has reminded of the drama that the death-or-glory nature of cup competitions can bring.

Chelsea and Liverpool slugged out their encounter but there were plenty of subplots to keep the attention as Jose Mourinho's men advanced. Diego Costa's stamps (one of which was subject to an FA charge),...

A porous U.S. defense allows Chile to rally in exhibition loss

Chile forward Mark Gonzalez scored the winning goal for his side to beat the United States 3-2 in Rancagua.

The U.S. men's national team began the 2015 campaign much like it finished 2014, with the Americans fading late to fall 3-2 to hosts Chile.

The U.S. twice went ahead in the first half in Wednesday's friendly, with goals from left wing back Brek Shea and striker Jozy Altidore sandwiched around a first-half tally from Roberto Gutierrez. But a stirring fight back, punctuated by a pair of goals from Mark Gonzalez, saw the home side prevail in Rancagua, Chile.
