ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts examine whether or not Thailand should put all their efforts into winning the AFF Suzuki Cup after another WC qualifying defeat.
The Withe family's connection to Thailand stretches back almost two decades.

As his European Cup-winning father continues to make a strong recovery from major surgery, Jason Withe is returning to Thailand to spearhead Sukhothai FC's bid for a place in the AFC Champions League (ACL) group stage in 2017.

Jason's father Peter is the Aston Villa legend who spent four hugely successful years as Thailand's head coach, and is on the mend after a recent gallstone operation. He was well enough to attend last Sunday's Birmingham derby, watching his former club Villa draw 1-1 with...

Crystal Palace owe Mile Jedinak for establishing them in Premier League

Mile Jedinak and Scott Dann
Mile Jedinak was stripped of the captaincy this season.

It is a testament to Mile Jedinak's leadership qualities that when former teammates speak about him, they do so in glowing terms that highlight his qualities as a person and a player.

For most Crystal Palace fans, Jedinak has been an iconic leader -- up there with greats like Jim Cannon and Geoff Thomas -- as an establishing force in the side. It might also be why his current manager feels it's time for him to move on.
