Why the NFL shouldn't be an economic model for the Champions League

The Champions League could never follow an NFL model but some owners would love to see UEFA try.

The Champions League revamp announced this past August, with Europe's four top-ranked leagues guaranteed 16 of the 32 spots, caused many to complain about polarization, greed and the one-percenters sticking it not just to the little guys (that happened a long time ago), but to the game's middle classes as well.

UEFA were caught between a rock (Europe's big clubs wanted even more allowances from wild card entries to games on weekends) and a hard place (if they didn't get what they wanted, some...

Pep Guardiola, in worst slump of his career, will stick to his plan at Man City

With Manchester City now winless in six matches, Stewart Robson says questions could be asked of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola was treated like footballing royalty when he arrived in England. Manchester City had got their man and surely success was only a heartbeat away. Here was the coach whose style and sophistication on and off the pitch would make City the envy of their rivals.

In fairness, Pep himself was the first to say it was not going to be that simple while other managers -- notably Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp -- warned him that the Premier League was a more demanding beast than most.

Of course, City...

LA Galaxy's past, present and future on display as it sees off Real Salt Lake's Russ Thaler and Andrew Wiebe are joined by Vancouver's Jordan Harvey to dissect LA Galaxy's win over RSL.

The LA Galaxy's 3-1 playoff win over Real Salt Lake was straight out of the Twilight Zone.

The Galaxy goal scorers on the night were Alan Gordon and Emmanuel Boateng. One of those who picked up an assist was none other than Landon Donovan. Think about that for a second.

On a team that at the beginning of the season was thought to be built around Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard, the heroes were a 35-year-old forward making his first playoff start, a 22-year-old winger who spent the three previous...

Mo Salah impresses but red hot Edin Dzeko steals the show for Roma

Edin Dzeko celebrates after scoring his first of two goals against Sassuolo.
Edin Dzeko struck twice for Roma as they came from behind to defeat Sassuolo.

Red hot Edin Dzeko stole the show once again as Roma sent a clear statement to Juventus that they're aiming for a proper Scudetto challenge, scoring twice as the Giallorossi came from behind to wallop Sassuolo 3-1 on Wednesday night.

The Bosnian's second half brace -- a fine left foot finish after racing on to Mohamed Salah's lovely through ball, and a roofed penalty won by Dzeko himself -- took him to 10 goals in as many appearances and turned around a match that at half time looked like the sun...

Christian Benteke returns to Liverpool: How other big-money sales coped

Steve Nicol breaks down what Liverpool are lacking to make an honest title challenge.

Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke is set to play against Liverpool on Saturday -- the first time the striker will face the Reds since he left in the summer for a deal worth £32 million.

The Belgian arrived at Anfield in summer of 2015 with high expectations after Liverpool paid Aston Villa a fee of £32.5m. But, having failed to adapt to Jurgen Klopp's distinct style of play, he lasted only a year.

Benteke then became Palace's most expensive ever signing in August and has looked more at...

Oriol Romeu emerges from Chelsea spell to star for Southampton

Oriol Romeu has impressed during Southampton's solid start to the Premier League season.

Oriol Romeu has taken the long way round since first being identified as a future star by Pep Guardiola as a youngster but the Southampton midfielder is finally fulfilling that potential this season.

As a 13-year-old schoolboy, Romeu was poached by Barcelona from the academy of cross-city rivals Espanyol before being handed his first team debut by master tactician Guardiola a month before his 19th birthday.

However, Romeu's hopes of establishing himself in Guardiola's star-studded lineup were dashed,...
