Fans suffer as Socceroos' soap opera plays out ahead of World Cup qualifier

Australia head coach Ange Postecoglou sits down for an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Jason Dasey to discuss the Socceroos upcoming World Cup qualifiers and rising star Tom Rogic.

This week's Socceroos camp has had all the markings of a soap opera. A plot twist came in the form of captain Mile Jedinak and star goalkeeper Mat Ryan withdrawing from the squad due to injury, but the real drama involved the ongoing power struggle between the governing body and the players' union.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) are bickering due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) expiring on June 30. This protracted row has, of course,...

Barcelona's stars will get little rest over the international break

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains Barcelona's transfer ban and their lack of depth because of that.

The all-important wins may be on the table but with only two goals scored in two games, FC Barcelona have produced their lowest-scoring opening to the La Liga season since 2008. The sharpness of mind that influences such things isn't quite yet there for the Catalans and just when Luis Enrique would have ideally liked to tailor some training sessions towards improving that deficiency, the international break has hit.

Only seven first team members will work at the club's Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper...

Saido Berahino's negative tweet toward West Brom could affect career

The ESPN FC crew discusses Saido Berahino's tweet saying he 'will never play' for Jeremy Peace, chairman of the striker's current club, West Bromwich Albion.

For a long while throughout the summer, the transfer speculation surrounding West Brom's Saido Berahino looked like it would remain just that. It was only in the final two weeks of the window that Tottenham made their move for the England under-21 forward, and things have been tumultuous ever since for the Baggies.

Ultimately, a deal couldn't be done, and Berahino still remains at the club. But it isn't as cut and dried as that, as shown in his tweet on the final hour of the transfer deadline.

Why the transfer market is a cult of promises, trickery and misdirection

The Exploding Heads run through the 10 strangest things that happened this transfer deadline day.
While transfer deadline day may have lacked a marquee signing, take a look at the more memorable moments as Manchester United's saga with David De Gea came to a solution while Southampton bolstered their defence.

The plans were in motion before the transfer window had even closed: there would be a protest outside the Emirates Stadium at 7 p.m. sharp on Tuesday. Arsenal's fans were fed up. They finished 12 points behind the Premier League champions last season. Now Arsene Wenger had gone through the entire summer and, uniquely among the top five leagues in Europe, he had not bought a single outfield player. Enough was enough. Out went the rallying cry: #wengerout.

Things were only slightly better at Manchester...

Another Manchester United transfer window full of squad turnover

The ESPN FC crew share their thoughts on the overall success of Manchester United's transfer window.

At a news conference to announce new signings earlier this summer, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said that his squad needed to be increased in numbers in order to cope with the likely demands of playing in four competitions this season. United had 27 first-team squad members at the end of last season. With the summer transfer window just finished, the Reds now have 24 first-team players, just 18 of them senior, going into the next game against Liverpool.

Gareth Bale and Wales can deliver a lasting legacy for Gary Speed

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on Premier League's spending this transfer window, if Gareth Bale will ever join Manchester United and more.

Wales are two games from destiny. The chance to qualify for a first major tournament since the 1958 World Cup is here. First, on Thursday, a trip to Cyprus, and then on Sunday, at the Cardiff City Stadium, they host Israel. Two wins will take them to the Euro 2016 finals with an unassailable 20 points from qualifying.

After only narrowly beating Andorra 2-1 in their opening match, and drawing 0-0 with Bosnia, a 0-0 draw with group favourites Belgium in November set the tone. Winning 3-0 in Israel...
