Keane quits Villa having made little impression

Paul Lambert refused to be drawn on his future at Aston Villa saying he is simply concentrating on trying to win games starting against Burnley.

When Roy Keane was appointed as Villa's assistant manager in the summer, the question on most supporters' minds was simply this: How long will he stay? The general consensus was that Keane's stint at the club would be brief and his departure after four months and 12 games of the Premier League season is far from a surprise. It was always a matter of when, not if.

It never felt like a comfortable fit: Keane, with his monstrously huge public persona and a former top-flight manager himself, playing...

Dortmund seek to continue domestic upturn against Eintracht Frankfurt

After a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League, Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp says his team just need to find a way to win again.

Borussia Dortmund play Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday evening to conclude Bundesliga Match Day 13. The black and yellows cannot afford to drop points anymore, if they want to keep their chances on Champions League football next season alive. If the nine-point gap to third place increases, it is highly unlikely that they will reach their target. Ideally, they must now grab 15 points from the next five games. Eintracht Frankfurt are a beatable side, but one thing is for sure: A performance like the...

When will teams learn that no-one has cracked the transfer code?

The ESPN FC crew discuss who they think will finish the season as the BPL's leading scorer, if Chelsea can win the Treble and where they think Petr Cech will be playing football next season.

There is a very good chance that, until a couple of weeks ago, you had never heard of Paul Mitchell. Perhaps his name rings a bell with Southampton fans, and maybe even supporters of his former club, MK Dons. All but the most devout, though, would probably have struggled to pick him out of a line-up.

That is not to say that he was a nobody. Far from it, in fact. Those behind the scenes on the south coast have long thought highly of Mitchell; his record as the club's talent scout certainly warranted...

Jack Wilshere's 'brittle' ankles, Lionel Messi's record, Cristiano Ronaldo row

The ESPN FC crew discuss Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi competing for the Champions League goal scoring record.

This week's roundup of the biggest and most unusual news stories features more Arsenal woe, more Messi record-breaking and Liverpool's goalkeeper being the butt of a very old joke.


1. Wenger fends off more barbs (Monday, Nov. 24)

While Arsenal's Premier League clash with Manchester United lacked the wider significance of recent years, last Saturday's home defeat still sparked much consternation among Gunners fans. Alisher Usmanov, the club's second-biggest shareholder, seized his...

Platini comments only add more fuel to Ronaldo's fire

The ESPN FC crew discuss what could prevent Real Madrid from winning the Champions League.

If he's not at the hairdresser, he's failing miserably in his attempt to win a World Cup. While Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational skills make him one of the best footballers to have graced the planet, he doesn't seem to have won too many friends in the upper echelons of football's governing bodies.

The top three players in the running for the Ballon d'Or will be announced Monday, and a year on from Sepp Blatter's derogatory remarks about the Real Madrid star, UEFA president Michel Platini has upset...

Subplots aplenty as Newcastle travel to fellow high-flyers West Ham

Alan Pardew admits he is surprised about how well his Newcastle side are currently playing as they look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League.

There is a huge football game in east London this weekend as Champions League chasing pair West Ham and Newcastle go head to head at Upton Park.

Only one point and one place separate the two teams with Newcastle on 19 points in fifth and West Ham a place lower -- quite a turnaround for the managers of both teams, both of whom were under huge pressure for consistently poor performances earlier in the year.
