Malaysia Cup

Roma fans greet players with 50kg of carrots at training session

Roma's players were greeted by 50kg of carrots when they turned up for training on Tuesday, with a group of fans branding them "rabbits" for their recent defeats.

A 6-1 loss at Barcelona in the Champions League was followed up by a 2-0 defeat at home to Atalanta, and a group of fans chose the team's return to training on Tuesday to vent their anger, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Enjoy your meal, you rabbits," said a banner held aloft by a group of fans, having blocked the entrance to Trigoria...

Newcastle and Aston Villa might need the ultimate wake-up call, relegation

Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren considers their 5-1 defeat against Crystal Palace a hurtful one for the fans.

Once upon a time Aston Villa were the champions of Europe and Newcastle United could boast the most entertaining team in the Premier League. Today they occupy the bottom two places, and deservedly so based on a series of hopeless displays this season.

The days when Villa were beating Bayern Munich in the 1982 European Cup final and Newcastle were wowing audiences in the 1990s with champagne football (David Ginola, Faustino Asprilla, Les Ferdinand, Peter Beardsley) are but distant memories. Both...

Arsenal suffer fewer injures than Man City, Man United or Liverpool

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner can't believe that Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger chose to play Alexis Sanchez with the risk of injury.

December is here, and once again we've had a weekend where Arsenal picked up more injuries than points. But is it really the nightmare before Christmas for Arsene Wenger?

The answer most people would give is a resounding yes, but while it's very easy to label Arsenal as the league's crock club, are the injuries really indicative of this?

The stats certainly don't come to that conclusion as we see a completely different picture. This is something Wenger may be keen to convey to concerned fans. 


Lassana Diarra leads five outstanding performers of the Ligue 1 season so far

Lassana Diarra
After 15 months out of football, Lassana Diarra has joined Marseille and become one of Ligue 1's brightest talents.

We are almost halfway through the Ligue 1 season, and the winter break is looming. Time for praise, then.

Apart from the obvious names like Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimovic or Hatem Ben Arfa, there have been some more-unexpected great performances this season in France's top flight. Here are the top five outstanding performers so far in Ligue 1:

Lassana Diarra | 30 | Midfielder | Marseille

No one saw this one coming, for sure. For 15 months, due to a conflict with former club Lokomotiv Moscow,...

Barcelona's rising costs make stadium naming rights key to staying at the top

The ESPN FC crew discuss how enjoyable it is to watch Barcelona football when they are playing at their best.
The ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Luis Suarez should have made the Ballon d'Or shortlist over Cristiano Ronaldo.

Whether or not you agree that Luis Suarez's 2015 form merits Cristiano Ronaldo's demotion from the Ballon d'Or top three, there is at least a debate. Whether or not the trident of Lionel Messi, Suarez and Neymar is the most potent, exciting and irresistible front three in history is a hypothetical. But, increasingly, it's a legitimate debate. Whether these three are capable of powering FC Barcelona to the first "double-treble" in football history... well you know the drill: Their form and ability...

Ronald Koeman can further cement his Saints legacy in Capital One Cup

Ronald Koeman
Ronald Koeman led Southampton to European competition for the first time in more than a decade, but can he end the club's trophy drought, too?

The last time Southampton lifted a major trophy, Brotherhood of Man had just won the Eurovision Song Contest with "Save Your Kisses for Me," and Czechoslovakia -- a country that no longer exists -- were about to become European champions. There is a whole generation of supporters who do not know what it is like to see their red and white heroes parade a meaningful cup around Wembley -- discounting their 2010 Football League trophy triumph over Carlisle.

That is why Wednesday's Capital One Cup...
