Martinez serving up dross at Everton

 By Jamie Smith

Tired Burnley running out of games to avoid drop

A goal a piece from Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge's saw Liverpool past Burnley.

Burnley are starting to look tired, and with the games running out for Sean Dyche's side, their situation is grim. A trip to Anfield to take on the Premier League's form team was never likely to yield much, and the result was never in doubt once Jordan Henderson had driven Liverpool into a first half lead.

Burnley looked off the pace and it is little wonder, given Dyche elected to name the same side yet again despite the fact his team had only taken two points from their last six games. Dyche...

Kaka eyes MLS Cup with Orlando, doesn't rule out Brazil return

Orlando City's marquee signing Kaka speaks to the media ahead of his side's MLS opener against New York City FC.
Orlando City co-owner Flávio Augusto da Silva expressed his excitement ahead of his side's MLS season opener on Sunday.
Orlando City SC's recent signing and MLS veteran Brek Shea spoke to ESPN FC's Adrian Healey about his move back the MLS , as well as his side's season opener against New York City FC.
ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman discusses the attributes of Orlando City SC and NYCFC and what sets the two MLS sides apart.

For someone who is about to take a huge leap of faith, Kaka sounds remarkably calm on the other end of the phone.

It's the last Thursday in February, 10 days before his and Orlando City's Major League Soccer debut against fellow newcomer New York City FC. It's not the first time in his career that Kaka has arrived at a club and league surrounded by heavy expectations; one just has to think back to his eye-watering 57 million pound ($87.5 million) move from Milan to Real Madrid in 2009, for example.


Roberto Martinez has Everton playing stale, uncreative dross

Stoke inflicted yet another defeat on Roberto Martinez's Everton on Wednesday to ramp up the pressure on the Spaniard. Victor Moses (pictured) netted the first in a 2-0 win.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez's trademark "we haven't got the results that our performances deserve," is a sure thing for anybody chasing a full house in post-match news conference bingo.

Martinez has resolutely stood by this mantra throughout the season, its delivery becoming as predictable as the tactics of the manager voicing it.

On this occasion, though, Martinez was right -- the performance in the 2-0 defeat at Stoke did not get the result it deserved. This inept, leaderless, shapeless mess...

Spells of Arsenal dominance riddled by in-game inconsistency

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says Olivier Giroud never gives up, and that's the strength of a good striker.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal recorded a 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road, maintaining their fourth-place position after a midweek Premier League round when the top eight teams all won.

The victory felt eerily familiar. It could have been the reverse fixture, a 2-1 win at the Emirates on Boxing Day. It could have been the match a couple of days afterwards, a 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park. It could have been the midweek 2-1 victory against a struggling Leicester side a month...

Chelsea closer to Premier League title, but are Everton in a relegation scrap?

Manchester United grab another three points, while Aston Villa break their losing streak with a vital extra-time winner.
A full slate of midweek fixtures saw Tim Sherwood lead Villa to victory, an apologetic Ben Foster and a water bottle showdown between Gus Poyet and Steve Bruce.
The ESPN FC panel discuss why Chelsea have been able to maintain their lead atop the Premier League as they held on for a 1-nil victory over West Ham.

It's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of matchday 28 in the Premier League, as there were plenty of exciting midweek fixtures.


Twice, Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Twice, he has beaten it. To fight that battle with courage and dignity, whether that battle is won or lost, is an achievement that outstrips any of the trivialities this column covers from week to week. To fight it twice, to beat it twice and to return to one of the world's most demanding...

Is FIFA president Sepp Blatter losing support in South America?

FIFA president Sepp Blatter took the Paraguay presidential helicopter as his election rivals went by bus to see the Paraguay president.

What does it mean when something doesn't happen? Is inaction actually an action?

Sepp Blatter left CONMEBOL's congress this week without the endorsement of the South American Football Confederation. In the past, it was downright automatic, thanks to his long history with various power brokers in that part of the world. He was close to Brazilian FA boss Ricardo Teixeira, son-in-law of his former boss and predecessor, one-time FIFA president Joao Havelange, and to Julio Grondona, who headed the Argentine...
