Man United's continued inability to put opponents away could kill their season

Stewart Robson discusses Jose Mourinho's approach when dealing with Manchester United's squad.

LIVERPOOL, England -- It was an appropriate choice of music by the Goodison Park tannoy operator as Everton and Manchester United trudged off the pitch at the end of a forgettable 1-1 draw.

"I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" by Elton John drifted throughout the stadium at full-time and the line suggesting that "things can only get better" perhaps summed up the current state of two teams who are seriously under-performing this season.

For Everton, who had gone into this game having won...

Jose Mourinho says despite conceding late, Manchester United displayed yet again that they were the better team by far.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three points from Everton and Manchester United's 1-1 draw at Goodison Park in the Premier League:

1. Fellaini gives Mourinho something to remember

Goodison Park has always been close to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho's heart, he has said, because his compatriot Eusebio scored four times there in Portugal's 1966 World Cup quarterfinal win over North Korea. Mourinho was 3 years old at the time, though, and more recent memories must be less pleasant. His Chelsea team...

1. Liverpool collapse spectacularly at Bournemouth

This was a day when the questions about Liverpool's defending came crashing to the fore. A chance to go within a point of Premier League leaders Chelsea was squandered in spectacular style.

Andre-Pierre Gignac, Tigres edge past Leon into the Liga MX Apertura final

Andre-Pierre Gignac has been in fine form for Tigres during the liguilla, scoring five times in his past three starts.
Leon put up an impressive fight, but Tigres was still able to book its place in the Liga MX final with a 3-2 aggregate win.

Tigres were made to suffer but eventually came through to defeat Club Leon 2-1 on Saturday to advance to the Liga MX final 3-2 on aggregate.

Here are three thoughts from a tense night at Estadio Universitario:

1. Tigres hold on

The consistency and sheer depth of quality that Tigres possess have led the Northern Mexican team to a Liga MX final for the third consecutive December.

They were the heavy favorites to go through after the 1-0 victory away at Estadio Leon last Wednesday, but coach Ricardo...

Barcelona, Real Madrid's latest Clasico showed the importance of mentality

Craig Burley was correct in predicting Sergio Ramos' impact, as his equaliser preserved a draw for Real Madrid.
Sergio Ramos headed home a last-gasp equaliser to preserve Real Madrid's six-point advantage in La Liga.

Barcelona fans watching the game on the supporters club boat in London had their hearts broken by Real's late leveler.

BARCELONA, Spain -- This was a match in which individual skill, tactics, strategy and passion all took a backseat to mentality.

The recent history of Barcelona and Real Madrid is so dotted with footballers of five-star, luxury class -- Lamborghinis and Ferraris amid a sea of family-sized, five-door, school-run estate cars -- that we all get caught up in talking about them like they are high-performance machines.

Not mere human beings.

Because they can, in football terms, go from nought to 60 in...

1. Arsenal back on track with rousing win

After a difficult November where Arsenal seemingly focused on not losing, Saturday's 5-1 humiliation of West Ham was a significant step in the right direction, with Alexis Sanchez the star of the show.

In truth, for long periods this was a poor contest in which both sides looked poor in an organisational sense at the back. But after a solid showing for the...
