Bayern Munich stay on top but Barcelona slip down the Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno says there's no hope for anyone else in the German league; Bayern Munich are in a league of their own.

The top two remain the same, but last season's treble winners take a big tumble down Shaka Hislop's Top 10.

1. Bayern Munich (no change)

My ESPN FC colleague Ale Moreno put it best when he said, in the aftermath of Bayern's 5-1 thrashing of Borussia Dortmund, that the Bundesliga title race is "100 percent over". With Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski each scoring twice, Pep Guardiola's side eased past the only other team who had shown any evidence that they could challenge this season.


Roberto Mancini has rebuilt Inter into a throwback side all about athleticism

Inter manager Roberto Mancini has gambled in creating an Inter side that places a premium on athleticism over technique and pressing.

Twelve years ago I sat in the bowels of a newly built, half-empty stadium in Qatar and enjoyed a long chat with a rather depressed Pep Guardiola. He was still just 32 years-old and playing for a team called Al Ahly.

Reflecting on how Johan Cruyff had handed him the keys to Barcelona's Dream Team more than a decade earlier he said: "Football was different back then. If I were a 20-year old at Barcelona today, I would never make it as a professional. At best I'd be playing in the third division. I...

American fan 'Big Wes' attends first Nottingham Forest game

Last Saturday, a special guest was invited out onto the pitch at half-time during Nottingham Forest's Championship game against Hull City -- a man who became a self-confessed die-hard Forest fan completely by accident.

It all began four years ago when Wesley Hall, of Atlanta, Georgia, found himself being congratulated on Twitter for playing his 400th game for Forest.

This came as a bit of a surprise to Hall, who admits he had absolutely no interest in football at the time.

The confusion stemmed from...

International football kits designed as if they were fashion labels

If you're a football fan and not familiar with the work of Gibraltar-based graphic designer Emilio Sansolini, then you should really get yourself acquainted.

Sansolini specialises in designing fantasy football kits, always incorporating an achingly beautiful vintage aesthetic into his work.

Indeed his latest project, Fashion Football, imagines what certain national team jerseys would look like were they designed by their respective country's leading fashion label.

The results are spectacularly handsome.

Iker Casillas makes Porto fan weep uncontrollably after giving gift

It would appear that Iker Casillas is a lot more popular among the fans of his new side Porto than he was with the majority of braying supporters inside the Bernabeu shortly before he exited Real Madrid over the summer.

Indeed, the Spanish international goalkeeper caused a young Porto fan to descend into a uncontrollable fit of tears recently when he bestowed the lad with his boots after a training session.

Cue the waterworks and a big hug from mum.

If only Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho had been...

Ecuador coach takes training in mobility scooter after Achilles injury

Gustavo Quinteros was able to direct traffic from his chair.

With a tricky 2018 World Cup qualification opener against Argentina to prepare for, Ecuador were dealt an untimely blow in the build-up when coach Gustavo Quinteros ruptured his Achilles tendon.

Quinteros was reportedly playing football with his friends when he suffered the injury, which led to the Tricolor coach having to take Tuesday's training session from the comfort of a mobility scooter.

Indeed, Quinteros was forced to trundle around the training pitch in Quito as his squad limbered up, all...
