Gianluigi Buffon continues to defy time when it comes to goalkeeping

Juventus barely got a 1-0 win over Lyon, who dominated the match, FC's Raphael Honigstein discusses the root of their issues.
Gianluigi Buffon made three superb saves to preserve Juve's win at Lyon on Tuesday night.

All of us will have to deal with declining ability as we age. Some of us are dealing with it now, in fact, but really, as long as you're over the age of 20, odds are there are some things you can no longer do. (Thankfully, there are also others you do better.)

For professional athletes, it's a bit different. The ones who make it to the top level have notions of confidence and self-belief drilled into them from a young age. Heck, anyone who has played sports at any level probably recalls some...

Inter Milan need to look after Mauro Icardi, Pep Guardiola's latest tweaks

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into Mauro Icardi's comments in his autobiography that reignited a feud with Inter supporters.

When your own fans greet you with a banner calling you a clown and a turd and ask you to never wear the captain's armband ever again, you know you've screwed up. Big time.

Inter striker Mauro Icardi has had a colorful and controversial enough career even before you get into the Wanda Nara business. But on Sunday, things spiraled into a wholly different sphere after Icardi published a book that both Inter's hardcore fans and the club objected to in the most strenuous way.

Where to begin?


There's a great deal more to Bob Bradley than an American accent

U.S. fans share their thoughts on former USMNT boss Bob Bradley's appointment at Swansea with ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes.

On Saturday, when he leads Swansea against Arsenal, Bob Bradley will become the first American to coach in the top-flight of a major European league. But among the things that make him different, his heritage is possibly the least relevant when it comes to assessing his chances for success.

So much about him is unorthodox.

Bradley played at Princeton University but never professionally -- in fact, he stopped playing at age 22 -- and, for the first 15 years of his coaching career, he didn't even...

Premier League shouldn't be too affected by falling exchange rates

The guys answer your tweets regarding the slog of the international break, 2018 WC predictions, and the fastest FC member.

Four months ago, a British pound was worth €1.30. On Tuesday, it slipped as low was €1.09. Around the same time, a pound was worth $1.49, whereas this week it slipped to $1.21. As I write this on Wednesday, it's around €1.11 with the euro and $1.23 with the dollar.

Why does this matter in a football column? Well, because the single biggest expense for most football clubs is player costs, both transfer fees and wages. And Premier League clubs tend to acquire a disproportionate...

Wayne Rooney captain debate is silly, Kimmich ace for Germany, Spain OK

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Wayne Rooney's current form and style of play slow down the youngsters in the England squad.

One of the side effects of living in London and caring about football is that you're never far away from the Wayne Rooney debate. That applies to both versions: the Manchester United one and the England one, which has the delightful coda of also being a captaincy debate.

With this being an international break, the focus was firmly on the latter. Some papers called for him being stripped of the captaincy in favor of John Stones. Others revealed that he was going to be dropped for Tuesday's clash...

World Cup expansion is reasonable, as long as it works for everyone

Raphael Honigstein joins the FC crew to break down the proposed changes to the World Cup by FIFA president Gianni Infantino.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley starts steaming up after learning that FIFA has plans to possibly expand the World Cup to 48 teams.

New FIFA president Gianni Infantino made expanding the World Cup from its current 32 teams part of his election platform. The cynic within most of us saw it as a naked attempt to pander to countries (particularly outside Europe) who have long been demanding more places at the world's biggest sporting event. And, probably, to some degree they were right.

Now, after talking up a 40-team World Cup, he's going even further, suggesting a 48-nation tournament.

More pandering? Yes and no.
