Jurgen Klopp brings optimism but Liverpool must have patience

The ESPN FC crew look ahead to Jurgen Klopp's first match in charge of Liverpool.

Much has been made of how Jurgen Klopp's original flight to Liverpool was tracked online by eager supporters. That may seem a little sad but if fans can't get upbeat about acquiring one of the best coaches in world football, then when can they get excited?

There's a degree of optimism in the air and yet it is also worth reminding people why Liverpool needed a new manager in the first place.

Most Liverpool managers relieved of their duties have probably deserved it although some fans claim that doesn't...

Mexico coach Tuca Ferretti honours moustache bet after El Tri win

Mexico interim head coach Ricardo 'Tuca' Ferretti talks to the press ahead of his final game in charge as El Tri host Panama.

Having proudly sported a moustache since the dawn of time, it was a particularly big deal when Mexico's interim coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti promised to shave it off should El Tri qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup.

Ferretti promised his players he would get rid of his iconic 'tache if they managed to beat the United States on Saturday evening.

An outrageous 118th-minute volley from Paul Aguilar sealed a 3-2 victory in Mexico's favour and as per the photographic evidence subsequently provided...

Kevin Davies shows off his impressive Star Wars collection

Having hung up his boots (quite literally!) at the beginning of September at the grand old age of 38, former Southampton, Bolton and England striker Kevin Davies is now settling into retired life.

As such, it would appear that he's having a bit of a clear out, with his vast collection of Star Wars toys being the first thing to go.

Showing his collection off on Twitter, Davies revealed he was preparing to stage one final battle between the Empire and the Republic before selling off his wares.

England's squad for Euro 2016: Who will make the final 23-man selection?

England manager Roy Hodgson has said he always believed in his team, despite the Three Lions' failure to perform in the 2014 World Cup finals

A perfect 10 was completed in Vilnius on Monday as Roy Hodgson's England completed their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with an unrivalled 100 percent record thanks to a 3-0 win over Lithuania; a strong riposte to the embarrassment of exiting the 2014 World Cup at the group stage.

Portents from the past suggest England should not get too excited though: Bobby Robson's team won every match en route to Euro '88 before a different 100 percent record followed as they lost all three matches in West Germany...

Memphis Depay a big hit among Manchester United supporters

Memphis Depay has had a mixed start to life at Manchester United but his shirt is popular among fans.

His form may have hit a bit of a rough patch of late, but Manchester United man Memphis Depay has still emerged as the Premier League's top-selling replica shirt between the start of July and the end of September.

According to Kitbag sales figures, Memphis has proved to be the most popular personalised replica shirt in the Premier League so far this summer, with the Dutch winger pipping United teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger and Chelsea star Eden Hazard into second and third spot respectively.

Fernando is no De Jong but that may boost Manchester City

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Sergio Aguero could be considered the third-best player in the world following his five-goal match against Newcastle over the weekend.
Fernando is getting back to form at Manchester City following a difficult spell.

For three-and-a-half years, Manchester City fans adored the work done in defensive midfield by Nigel de Jong. Signed by Mark Hughes in January 2009, he was a crucial cog in shoring up a leaky defence when Roberto Mancini replaced the Welshman.

In fact, the Italian made the Blues more secure almost straight away -- conceding 17 goals in his 21 matches in charge in 2009-10, compared to Hughes's 27 in 17.

De Jong formed part of the spine in the team during the next campaign, as City ended their 35-year...
