De Gea, Martial and Man United show the panic deadline day can induce

France coach Didier Deschamps says Manchester United-bound Anthony Martial has great potential.
France coach Didier Deschamps says Manchester United-bound Anthony Martial has great potential.

The transfer window and when it should end is a divisive issue among managers. Some bosses, such as West Brom's Tony Pulis, believe it should shut before the season starts.

Others, as Sam Allardyce commented a few weeks ago, enjoy the chance to assess the players at their disposal in live games for a few weeks before finalising their squad.

One thing's for sure -- deadline day focuses the mind. Like an ill-prepared student whose exam time sneaks up on them or a tax return that has been sitting on...

Germany and Poland bring back World Cup '74 memories and the water battle

Germany and Poland's second-round clash at the World Cup in 1974 was notable for the dreadful pitch conditions.

When Germany play Poland in Frankfurt in European Championship 2016 qualifying on Friday, many memories will come flooding back -- and you'll see in a second why this is a pun.

The two sides have met many times over the years but one match towers above the rest: the World Cup game in Frankfurt on July 3, 1974.

Germans call it "die Wasserschlacht", the water battle, while it's "mecz na wodzie" for the Poles, the water game. It's sometimes referred to as the semifinal, but it was in fact the teams'...

Real Madrid have measure of Man United despite De Gea confusion

David De Gea's potential move to Real Madrid descended into farce on Monday as it was claimed the Spanish club failed to sign him in time.

Neither side is yet accepting blame for Monday's farcical breakdown of goalkeeper David De Gea's move from Manchester United to Real Madrid. Nor are they likely to.

Though a wrong file format is being blamed for Madrid's failure to ratify the deal before the 00:00 CET deadline, the truth of De Gea being left in limbo lies in the brinkmanship of the deal being taken to the last minute of the Spanish transfer window.

Two clubs who had once shared historically cordial relations since first meeting...

Man United, Stones, Pogba, Arsenal and Chelsea to dominate deadline day?

The ESPN FC crew react to news of Anthony Martial's move to Manchester United ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline.

With the transfer window closing for English clubs at 6:00 p.m. BST on Tuesday, here's a look at five key questions that will be answered once the deadline has passed.

Can Manchester United do enough?

Anthony Martial isn't quite the eye-catching buy many at Manchester United had in mind. All summer, they have been trying to sign a genuine superstar to enliven their attack -- genuinely casting enquiries for the likes of Gareth Bale and Thomas Muller, but instead have turned to a raw teenager.


How much is Brendan Rodgers to blame for Liverpool's lack of direction?

Liverpool's three-match winning streak came to an abrupt halt when West Ham convincingly defeated them 3-0 at Anfield.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes West Ham's early goal was key to their victory.

It's hard to imagine a fanbase more hysterical than Liverpool's. The mood swings of those who profess allegiance to Anfield are bewildering. The 3-0 home defeat by West Ham United on Saturday caused an explosion of fury and finger-pointing after the positive reaction to the 0-0 draw away to Arsenal in the previous match.

The international break comes at a bad time for Brendan Rodgers. Many of his squad will be away, giving the manager less time to repair the damage of Saturday. For the fans, it...
