Roy Keane may be controversial but his demands aren't unreasonable

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert responded to reports that former assistant manager Roy Keane confronted Tom Cleverley at the midfielder's home believing he had leaked stories about Keane falling out with the club's players.

Roy Keane has departed and yet he still dominates the agenda at Aston Villa. As the mid-table Midlanders prepare for a testing encounter with Louis van Gaal's resurgent Manchester United, the dust still settles on the now former assistant manager's latest controversy.

In this tangled web, there are two strands that we can grip with certainty. Firstly, that a respected journalist from the Daily Mail ran a story about Keane's alleged problems with the players that was peppered with spicy quotes from...

Does Cuban defector Osvaldo Alonso have U.S. national team future?

Osvaldo Alonso is a three-time MLS all-star and has established himself as a vital member of the Seattle Sounders.

Only a few hours had passed after President Obama's announcement of an easing of the relationship with Cuba when the first speculation began appearing about the implications for sports.

The discussion primarily centered on baseball and the prospect of hundreds of Cuban players finding their way to MLB, as everything from immediate all-stars to solid backup players. MLB has long had provisional plans in place for such an eventuality, while for their part the Cuban authorities have already set a precedent...

Manchester City aim to wrest control of the Premier League against Palace

In Saturday's Premier League action, Manchester City seek to catch Chelsea at the top of the table with a win over Crystal Palace at home.

From being in a position where they looked so out of the title race that one U.K. bookmaker paid out on Chelsea's 2015 Premire League title win, Manchester City could go back to the top of the table on Saturday evening. It would take a big win and they would have played one game more than their London rivals, but psychologically it could mean a lot as the clubs head into the busy festive schedule. A winning margin of four goals would do it for Manuel Pellegrini's side -- on goals scored.

Current run of form has taken pressure off Burnley on trip to Spurs

Burnley manager Sean Dyche aims for back-to-back wins in the English Premier League as his side travel to face Tottenham.

The pressure is off Sean Dyche's Burnley as they travel to Tottenham on Saturday. Taking 11 points from their last six games has lifted the team out of the bottom three and last weekend's shock 1-0 win over Southampton at Turf Moor provided a massive confidence boost.

Burnley are on a high and after a poor start to the season have given themselves every chance of staying in the Premier League next season, although there is a lot of hard work ahead and complacency must be avoided.

Sepp Blatter's latest move in FIFA's Game of Thrones-style soap opera

FIFA president Sepp Blatter released a statement saying that they will release Michael Garcia's report but the bid process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will not be revisited.

Maybe that's the trick. Heck, maybe it's the secret to eternal happiness. Figure out which way the wind is blowing and make sure you jump on the right bandwagon at the right time. It's the secret to survival, political or otherwise.

On Friday, Sepp Blatter released a statement saying he had asked the FIFA Executive Committee to publish Michael Garcia's report into alleged impropriety in bidding and voting for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Lo and behold, that's what the ExCo did. And -- guess what?...

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...
