Pep Guardiola can silence his critics with a Man City win vs. Liverpool

The FC crew expect Man City to come out gunning for a strong response against Liverpool after their crashing out of the UCL.

If you were to buy into the Pavlovian reaction for Manchester City going out of the Champions League, then it's clear that except for his ridiculously tight pants, the emperor has no clothes. In just 45 inchoate minutes at Monaco's Stade Louis II, Pep Guardiola went from a messianic coaching genius who won 21 trophies with Barcelona and Bayern Munich to Harry Redknapp incarnate. Or so you'd be led to believe, if you waded through the progressively more hysterical postmortems following City's "Pepexit."


Can L.A., Major League Soccer handle LAFC's celeb-heavy arrival in 2018?

Max Bretos and Herculez Gomez discuss all the events from MLS opening weekend and are joined by Carlos Bocanegra.
Will Ferrell is just one of the many, many high-profile LAFC investors hoping to make a splash in MLS.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Just before MLS commissioner Don Garber was about to announce the first pick in this year's SuperDraft in January, a mighty roar went up from a raucous pack of supporters seated near the back of the main ballroom at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Who, I wondered, were these boisterous interlopers bellowing as if their team were about to take the field for the season opener? At first I assumed they were simply over-caffeinated supporters of MLS's latest entries, Minnesota...

Which under-pressure team will get a win at Anfield: Liverpool or Arsenal?

Steve Nicol discusses Liverpool's trend of playing well against the top four, but struggling against the rest of the Prem.

Arsene Wenger may not be winning any popularity contests at the Emirates these days, but he won't be lacking for affection when he visits Anfield on Saturday. What a warm willkommen he can expect from Jurgen Klopp, complete with a big, toothy grin and arms extended nearly as wide open as his back four was against Leicester earlier this week. God knows Wenger could use a hug, what with all the existential dread surrounding him lately. Will he go or will he stay? And if he goes, will Alexis Sanchez...

Arsenal only show up when they feel like it; will they be 'ready' for Chelsea?

Alison Bender and Mattias Karen discuss whether Arsenal can keep their season alive heading into a packed February.

To be perfectly honest, I don't think I'm "mentally ready" to write this Chelsea-Arsenal preview. Yet only 72 hours ago, I was completely jacked up to make the case that Saturday's game would be Arsenal's season-defining match.

Against all logic (and the club's impressive history of self-sabotage in February) I'd convinced myself that the awesome display of attacking firepower I had witnessed in the 5-0 FA Cup annihilation of Southampton this past weekend was something so much more than another...

Why Chelsea will, or won't, win the Premier League this season

After being accused of lacking identity, Steve Nicol believes Antonio Conte is the man to give them just that.

Here's one alternative fact I think we can all agree on: Every Premier League fan is absolutely certain of his team's fate and the future of the title race. If you're a Chelsea supporter (and thanks to manager Antonio Conte, I'll permit that), you're already making plans to mock Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger mercilessly.

And while it certainly seems that the trophy is Chelsea's to lose -- they enjoy a robust eight-point gap over second-place Arsenal with 16 games remaining -- reality won't stop...

"Fraudiola" claims are ridiculous; Guardiola needs time at Man City

Well, so much for the much ballyhooed supremacy of Spanish and German football. No wonder the Barcas and Bayerns have had their way in La Liga and Bundesliga for all these years. They had virtually no competition.

Oh, sure, their opponents may have possessed some smattering of skill, but there was obviously no intensity to their play, no bone-jarring physicality, no in-your-face pressing, none of the qualities that make the Premier League such a unique challenge to a ball-hogging purist like Pep...
