Manchester United's fortunes have changed since last visit to Villa Park

Louis van Gaal talks about the future of Radamel Falcao as he prepares his in-form Manchester United side for trip to Aston Villa.

In the 15th minute of Manchester United's visit to Villa Park last year, Adnan Januzaj leapt higher than anyone else in the area to meet Antonio Valencia's cross and thump a header against the post. Danny Welbeck gratefully slotted home the rebound, but nobody was in any doubt as to who deserved the credit. A year on and Januzaj's future is looking far from certain.

Last December the cracks were beginning to show in David Moyes' reign at United. The champions had already lost to West Bromwich Albion...

Thierry Henry quits, Qatar eyes Prem club, FIFA to publish World Cup report

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains that Thierry Henry may be one of the best French players ever, after amassing 20 trophies in a 21-year career.

This week's biggest news stories of the week saw a true great of the modern game bow out, Manchester United step closer to another big-money deal and FIFA and Qatar do yet more wonders for their respective reputations.


1. Henry deserves a big hand (Tuesday Dec. 16)

Thierry Henry calling time on his playing career was widely expected, and that allowed him the time to stage-manage his announcement perfectly. The striker picked what could be predicted as a quiet news day to make the...

Redknapp returns from Malaysia with bad news regarding January signings

Ahead of hosting West Brom in the Premier League, QPR manager Harry Redknapp has called on his midfielders to support Charlie Austin by scoring more goals.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp was flown half-way around the world to Malaysia on Tuesday night to meet owner Tony Fernandes and was back at the club's west London training ground in time for training on Friday morning.

The brief sojourn would almost certainly not have any damaging effect on his club's preparations for Saturday's latest must-win home match with West Brom. But it was out of character for a man who once rejected the chance to manage Newcastle as it was too far a commute from...

Another showing like against Huesca will keep critics off Barcelona's back

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has expressed he'd like to follow his old Barcelona manager's, Pep Guardiola, footsteps and be a player and coach at the legendary Catalan club.

Luis Enrique summed up 2014 on Friday using a very particular Spanish vernacular that is best translated up as "amazing" or "excellent," but it will not have a very happy ending if his Barcelona side fail to beat lowly Cordoba on Saturday and put on a bit of a show for the Camp Nou crowd. The fact is Barca missed a great chance last weekend to put pressure on Real Madrid at the top of La Liga and finish 2014 on the top of the pile.

Winless Leicester's search for three points continues at West Ham

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson notes that he is looking forward to the opportunity to answer back to his critics.

Not many people predicted West Ham would be on course for Champions League football at Christmas, while Leicester may well have earmarked this festive fixture as a relegation six-pointer when the matches were revealed back in the summer.

Instead the Foxes travel to Upton Park to face a Hammers side just 11 points off leaders Chelsea, having seen the east Londoners lose just one of their past 10 games. They have also only been defeated twice at home all season, and both those losses came back in...

Swansea must get back on track after Spurs loss by taming Tigers

Swansea City manager Garry Monk discusses reports linking Ecuador international Jefferson Montero to match-fixing.

Swansea will still be sore after a late, undeserved 2-1 defeat at home to Tottenham last week. This Saturday will give the team a chance to vent their frustration on a far more vulnerable opponent in Hull City, but only if they can keep their focus. The Tigers are desperate to break a nine-match winless streak and climb out of the relegation zone before the New Year. Here are three things to consider ahead of this one ...
