Who has been the best summer signing so far?

When this question was put to the ESPN FC TV panel, Gab Marcotti led off by opting for Miralem Pjanic, who has made the move from Roma to Juventus.

Craig Burley also went for a new signing by the Italian champions: Gonzalo Higuain. (Craig did point out that he was asked for the best signing, not the best bargain!)

Meanwhile, Steve Nicol selected Liverpool new boy Sadio Mane,...

The great 'Wexit' debate: Why Arsene Wenger must finally leave Arsenal

The ESPN FC crew discuss Arsenal's expectations for the upcoming season.

Many years ago, I owned a Bruce Springsteen CD of Born to Run. I played the thing so many times that the word "run" in the lyric "baby, we were born to run" just disappeared. That didn't deter me. I kept playing it until one day my daughter presented me with a new disc and begged me to toss the old one.

As we head into the new Arsenal season, which feels very much like the old Arsenal season (and the 10 before that), I'm finally beginning to sense that there are a few too many scratches on Arsene...

Top Tenner: The enforcers of European football

The ESPN FC crew debate the point of watching Serie A this season if Juventus buy Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.

While goal-scorers get the headlines and midfield wizards receive the praise of pundits, it is football's enforcers who do the dirty work to ensure victory for their teams. These men will go to great lengths to achieve just that, making them a nightmare to play against, but a dream to have on your side.

Here is a top 10 of Europe's enforcers, football's toughest players across the big leagues.

Paul Pogba's future: Pros and cons for Man United, Real Madrid and Juve

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop does not necessarily feel Man United or Real Madrid would best suit Paul Pogba.

It's the story that will define this transfer window and one that promises to make history: Where does Paul Pogba's future lie?

Is it worth it for Manchester United or Real Madrid to break the world transfer record to get him? Or should Juventus stay strong and not give into the pressure to sell their star?

ESPN FC looks at the pros and cons of signing Pogba for the three clubs involved.



A mood change: Regardless of the cost involved, the world record signing of Pogba,...

Sam Allardyce supremely confident as England turn to his pragmatic skills

The ESPN FC crew discuss former Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce being hired as the new England manager.

There's a theory that suggests anyone who wants to be a world leader should be immediately disqualified from doing so, on the basis that the sheer hubris involved in thinking you can cope with such a gargantuan task, makes you immediately unsuitable.

Given the way it has chewed up and made punchlines of men like Fabio Capello, you could think the same about the England job.

"It drives them all mad in the end," wrote the journalist Patrick Collins at one point. But if nothing else, Sam Allardyce...
