When will teams learn that no-one has cracked the transfer code?

The ESPN FC crew discuss who they think will finish the season as the BPL's leading scorer, if Chelsea can win the Treble and where they think Petr Cech will be playing football next season.

There is a very good chance that until a couple of weeks ago, you had never heard of Paul Mitchell. Perhaps his name rings a bell with Southampton fans, and maybe even supporters of his former club, MK Dons. All but the most devout, though, would probably have struggled to pick him out of a line-up.

That is not to say that he was a nobody. Far from it, in fact. Those behind the scenes on the south coast have long thought highly of Mitchell; his record as the club's talent scout certainly warranted...

Jack Wilshere's 'brittle' ankles, Lionel Messi's record, Cristiano Ronaldo row

The ESPN FC crew discuss Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi competing for the Champions League goal scoring record.

This week's round-up of the biggest and more unusual news stories features more Arsenal woe, more Messi record-breaking and Liverpool's goalkeeper being the butt of a very old joke.


1. Wenger fends of more barbs (Monday Nov. 24)

While Arsenal's Premier League clash with Manchester United lacked the wider significance of recent years, last Saturday's home defeat still sparked much consternation among Gunners fans. Alisher Usmanov, the club's second-biggest shareholder, seized his...

Platini comments only add more fuel to Ronaldo's fire

The ESPN FC crew discuss what could prevent Real Madrid from winning the Champions League.

If he's not in the hairdressers, he's failing miserably in his attempts to win a World Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the best footballers to have graced the planet, but he doesn't seem to have won too many friends in the upper echelons of football's governing bodies with his sensational skills.

The top three players in the running for the Ballon d'Or are announced on Monday and a year on from Sepp Blatter's derogatory remarks about the Real Madrid star, UEFA president Michel Platini has...

Subplots aplenty as Newcastle travel to fellow high-flyers West Ham

Alan Pardew admits he is surprised about how well his Newcastle side are currently playing as they look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League.

There is a huge football game in east London this weekend as Champions League chasing pair West Ham and Newcastle go head to head at Upton Park.

Only one point and one place separate the two teams with Newcastle on 19 points in fifth and West Ham a place lower -- quite a turnaround for the managers of both teams, both of whom were under huge pressure for consistently poor performances earlier in the year.

Reliable Tomas Rosicky should be given more playing time at Arsenal

Jack Wilshere has been ruled out of action for three months after having surgery on his ankle, Arsenal have confirmed.

Most seasons, normally around February or March, Arsenal call on an underused genius to save their campaign.

Step forward Tomas Rosicky. The 34-year-old Czech midfielder can be relied upon to be a star performer in the second half of the season as Arsenal chase a place in the top four or some silverware.

Rosicky provides experience, a steady head in midfield and some much needed quality. He can play wide, centrally, deep or in a more advanced midfield role.

In the past few seasons, Rosicky has been...

Marouane Chamakh: Crystal Palace's unheralded hero

Neil Warnock believes that Crystal Palace are among 12 teams looking to survive in the Premier League this season whilst praising Swansea ahead of their clash on Saturday.

Sometimes the best things in life aren't the most obvious. It's the everyday things you don't notice that are the best: sunsets, hugs, laughter, naps, fresh bedsheets and, of course, unicorns. And for Palace (I am going somewhere with this, I promise), yes you can have your lovely Yannick Bolasie and your expensive James McArthur and your, well, Mile Jedinak has a great beard, but the most underrated and thus most delightful player for Palace is Marouane Chamakh.

Underrated not by Palace fans,...
