Manchester United fan carves Louis van Gaal, Manuel Pellegrini pumpkins

With both Halloween and, more importantly, the first Manchester derby of the season now within spitting distance, a football fan from Lancashire has successfully spliced the two together like some kind of ungodly lab experiment gone awry.

Simon McMinnis, who comes down firmly on the "United" side of the Manc divide, has spent the majority of his week so far creating jack-o'-lantern effigies of the two managers going head-to-head at the Etihad on Sunday using two enormous 15kg pumpkins he purchased...

Betting Blog: Manchester City to beat United in derby despite wobble

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini stated that his side are lacking confidence following their premature exit from the Capital One Cup.

The Manchester derby has always had something about it, no matter what the relative health of the two teams has been at the time -- and when they meet at the City of Manchester Stadium on Sunday, both have something to prove. City need to show they have not lost the aura of champions while United must sense the chance to take advantage of their neighbours' up and down form.

City have veered between brilliance and something far more ordinary this season and their midweek exit from the Capital One...

Hamburg keeper Jaroslav Drobny makes painful save vs. Bayern Munich

Jaroslav Drobny winces after blocking the ball with a sensitive part of his anatomy.

Seeing that they went on to lose 3-1 anyway, Hamburg goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny probably wishes he hadn't bothered making one particular save during his side's DFB Pokal defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

The moment came shortly before half-time when the Czech shot-stopper inadvertently repelled Philipp Lahm's close-range effort using a rather sensitive part of his anatomy.

You can almost pinpoint the moment that Drobny's eyes start to water, but -- and kudos to him -- the Hamburg...

Theo Walcott availability gives Arsenal turbo-charged boost vs. Burnley

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez during the weekend. So how do their numbers stack up through their first nine career Premier League matches?
Theo Walcott scored five Premier League goals in 13 appearances last season.

This weekend, Arsenal come up against Premier League strugglers Burnley. It's a superb opportunity for the Gunners to gain another three points and continue their climb up the table. Their confidence will be boosted not just by two consecutive victories, but also by the return to fitness of Theo Walcott.

The last time these two sides met was in March 2010. On that occasion, Arsenal ran out 3-1 winners. Walcott was among the goalscorers, cutting in from the right flank to fire home with his left...

My life in the Chinese Super League with Liaoning Hongyun

Australian defender Josh Mitchell played four seasons in the A-League with Perth Glory and Newcastle Jets and had a stint in Romania before trying his luck in the Chinese Super League.

After many close calls and potential transfers to Asian countries, I finally made the move to China to join Liaoning Hongyun FC in the Chinese Super League (CSL) in June.

For the two seasons before that, I was playing for my hometown club, the Newcastle Jets in the A-League, and former Liverpool and England forward Emile Heskey was our marquee player.

It wasn't my first experience abroad because I did have four seasons with FC Universitatea Craiova in Romania where another Aussie, Michael Baird...
