Stoke fans seek Diouf return


Portland Timbers' improved defense down to Borchers and Ridgewell

New England's Charlie Davies joins ESPN FC's Dan Thomas and Steve Nicol to preview the MLS conference final second legs.
The ESPN FC panel discuss whether or not FC Dallas will be able to overcome their 3-1 first leg deficit against Portland.

Sometimes, one trade can make all the difference.

At the conclusion of the 2014 MLS season, Portland Timbers coach Caleb Porter and general manager Gavin Wilkinson knew what the side needed most, and that was defensive help. The team conceded 52 goals over the course of the campaign, and while the midseason arrival of center back Liam Ridgewell helped solidify the back line, even more reinforcements were needed.

Wilkinson and Porter had a specific profile in mind in terms of what kind of defender...

Tottenham team effort validates Pochettino's Europa League gamble

Harry Kane scored his 10th goal in all competitions as Tottenham advanced to the Europa League knockout stages.

Eyebrows were raised when Mauricio Pochettino took an almost full-strength squad to Azerbaijan and then picked most of his senior players against Qarabag less than three days before a crucial Premier League showdown with Chelsea at midday on Sunday.

It remains to be seen how those decisions will affect Spurs, and the top-four battle, at the weekend -- but the Argentine will feel justified in his decisions for now, after this mature 1-0 victory which ensured Tottenham qualified for the knockout stages...

Chicharito has impressed but Bayer Leverkusen must improve

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reacts to David De Gea's comments that Chicharito is among the world's best.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea reminisces about playing alongside Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez.

As the calendar year winds down, Bayer 04 Leverkusen still don't really know what to make of 2015-16.

"The next few weeks will show whether the first half of the season was top or a flop," said midfielder Christoph Kramer with typical bluntness after his side's 1-1 draw at BATE Borisov on Tuesday night.

In tricky conditions, Roger Schmidt's team had come close to winning in Belarus, but the disappointing final result dragged them to the edge of elimination from the Champions League and threw up some...

Manchester United fans' frustration grows as entertainment diminishes

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Shaka Hislop preview the battle of the top two in the Premier League.
Round 14 sees Manchester United square off against top of the league Jamie Vardy and Leicester City.

After Wednesday's 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United's fourth goalless stalemate in seven games, a friend emailed.

"I compare the club to a bath," he wrote. "The water was leaking quickly down the plug hole when [David] Moyes was here. [Van Gaal] came in and put a big plug in there to shore things up. Problem is that now there are no bubbles and the water's flat and lifeless.

"I'm completely nonplussed by the football. [I still] buzz off the buildup and rushing to the ground, buzz off...

Borussia Dortmund squander chance to secure Europa League Group C

Pavel Mamaev's early penalty was enough to hold off Borussia Dortmund in Krasnodar's 1-0 win.

Borussia Dortmund conceded the top of UEFA Europa League's Group C due to a rather unfortunate 1-0 loss away to FC Krasnodar. The Black and Yellows were the dominant side in all statistics except for the most relevant one: the scoreboard.

By not scoring an away goal, BVB no longer have fate in their own hands as they are level on points with FC Krasnodar, but behind on aggregate. It paints a slightly embarrassing picture for the Germans, who were tipped as heavy favourites to come out as group winners.

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger has perfect window to rest Alexis Sanchez

Arsene Wenger says it's difficult to rest Alexis Sanchez because of his stunning form.

Humanity's quest to realise a perpetual motion machine dates back to the Middle Ages. This search for an infinite energy source has obsessed scientists and inventors like few other holy grails. Now Arsenal appear to have discovered one in human form: Alexis Sanchez, the footballer who just can't stop playing.

When asked why he did not take Sanchez off toward the end of Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb, a match in which the forward scored twice and assisted the other goal for Mesut Ozil,...
