Alarm bells sounding for Everton


Win over Toon a distant memory

Brendan Rodgers' management of Mario Balotelli has backfired

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers previews the Premier League match at Burnley on Boxing Day, when Reds forward Mario Balotelli is set to return from suspension.

"There is no question over his talent -- I have played with him and I know how good he is and how good he can be. It is the job of the Liverpool coach to manage him in the right way. He needs to be loved, he needs direction, but most importantly he needs to know that the coach believes in him" -- Andrea Pirlo on Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli spent Boxing Day afternoon on the bench at Turf Moor, as his team huffed, puffed and scuffled their way to a 1-0 win over Burnley. And, according to his manager...

Neil Warnock's exit sees Crystal Palace searching for another Tony Pulis

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock was fired up by his team's massive 3-2 victory at Goodison Park.
Neil Warnock won three of his 17 matches in charge of Crystal Palace.

Sometimes Santa Claus does bring you what you want. For a lot of Crystal Palace fans the only gift worth getting was Neil Warnock losing his job as manager. It might be two days late but they eventually got their Christmas wish as the Eagles have terminated Warnock's contract, less than 24 hours after the Boxing Day defeat to Southampton.

With a vital trip to QPR on Sunday, Palace supporters woke up to the news on Saturday that the Yorkshireman has lasted just four months in his second stint as...

Tottenham, Man United meet on the cusp of achieving their objectives

The ESPN FC panel preview Week 19's much-anticipated match between Manchester United and Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

Very few associated with Manchester United will recall 2014 as their favourite year. It shall be remembered as the year the club came loose of its bearings, abandoned a devotion to slow-burning stability and broke the bank to try to recover.

Two matches against Tottenham Hotspur will bookend 2014. New Year's Day saw a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford end a spell of optimism for the troubled, doomed reign of former manager David Moyes. That evening, a befuddled Moyes was forced to admit his team had already...

Alarm bells sound as Stoke loss slides Everton further down the table

Everton crashed to their third home loss of the season against Stoke.

It is the season of goodwill and Everton are revelling in presenting results to the opposition. On this occasion, an increasingly agitated Goodison Park saw Stoke benefit from the home side's generosity and escape with a 1-0 win.

This Boxing Day clash clocked in at 106 minutes and it felt longer still for supporters witnessing a third home defeat of the season, the same amount as the whole of the last campaign.

Things can only get better: five 2015 wishes for Indonesian football

Forward Zulham Zamrun was one of the bright spots in Indonesia's unsuccessful Suzuki Cup campaign.

It can be difficult at times to be optimistic about Indonesian football. The game lurches from one disaster to another.

Consequently, many supporters are resigned to the national team's fate as Southeast Asia's biggest underachievers. This is even more relevant after Merah Putih crashed out of the AFF Suzuki Cup in the group stage, winning only their meaningless final game against Laos in their Group A assignments.

Still, it would be nice if a few lessons could...

Frustrations are building as Crystal Palace disappoint vs. Southampton

Southampton's resurgence continued in style at Selhurst Park as Ronald Koeman's side moved back into the top four of the Premier League.

Being a football fan is tough sometimes. Well, a lot if you're a Crystal Palace fan.

Palace's Boxing Day defeat at home to Southampton was freezing from start to finish, provided no moments of entertainment for home fans, and ended with the Eagles' fifth defeat in nine games. Everyone at Selhurst Park tried their best to get through the day nursing their festive hangovers as best as possible.

There were boos at half-time -- not universal, fairly muffled in reality, but they were there. There were...
