Radamel Falcao to flop at Chelsea?

50-50 Challenge

Boss Review: Mou needs the UCL

 By Phil Lythell

After Petr Cech's Chelsea exit, who will replace him as the No. 2 goalkeeper?

New Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech after signing with the club.

And so another legend departs. First it was Didier Drogba in 2012, then it was Ashley Cole in 2014, followed by Frank Lampard that same year, and Drogba again after this past season. Now it is officially time to wave goodbye to the one man human shield that is Petr Cech.

For the supporters, the mixed feelings are obvious. The gratitude and best wishes towards the club's greatest ever goalkepper are genuinely heartfelt. The knowledge that Chelsea are allowing one of the finest stoppers in world football...

Chelsea and Atletico Madrid linked by similarities

ESPN FC's Craig Burley feels Arsenal will be strengthened with Petr Cech in net, where Burley explains Jose Mourinho may be showing a bit of people skills by letting the long time Chelsea goalkeeper move to Arsene Wenger's side.

All football clubs are unique. They have their own identity, their own culture, their own history. But some do resemble others from foreign lands, perhaps not when held up to stern examination, but there are similarities nonetheless.

Manchester United, for instance, could be regarded as England's version of Real Madrid. Both world-renowned and associated with glamourous attacking football that has earned them a bulging trophy cabinet that surpasses their domestic rivals. Chelsea are a more difficult...

Versatile forward Antoine Griezmann would make a lot of sense at Chelsea

The ESPN FC panel respond to the reports suggesting Antoine Griezmann's possible transfer to Chelsea next season.

Chelsea's high profile transfer business will soon get underway with veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech set to leave the club. Though it's not yet a done deal, he is set to have a medical at Arsenal next week ahead of a reported £10.9 million move to the Emirates.

The fee for Cech represents a tidy bit of business for the Stamford Bridge outfit. Not only does it help the club adhere to UEFA's Financial Fair Play guidelines, but it provides a nice lining for the SW6 coffers and could be the catalyst...

Wenger, Van Gaal and Mourinho approach season with big expectations

As the fixture list for the new Premier League season is released, fans will be counting the days until August 8th.
Arsene Wenger and Louis Van Gaal probably don't expect to win the league, while Jose Mourinho looks to build a dynasty.

This spring I spent a morning in Paris with Arsene Wenger and got a glimpse of his life. Wenger was staying in a five-star hotel, so over breakfast he inevitably ran into Fabien Barthez, the former France goalkeeper, who just happened to be passing. Soccer people hang out in five-star hotels, and because Wenger has been in the game longer than almost anyone else, he knows everyone.

Wenger greeted Barthez like a long-lost friend. In the glare of TV cameras Wenger usually looks tense, upright and...

Loftus-Cheek's confident display for England a hint of bright Chelsea future

Chelsea captain John Terry has been named an ambassador of football culture by the Guangzhou Football Association in China.

England's representatives have endured an underwhelming campaign so far at the European Under-21 Championship. An opening defeat to Portugal threw a spanner in the works and they only just managed to keep their destiny in their own hands when a late Jesse Lingard winner edged them tentatively past Sweden on Sunday.

But while the Young Lions have yet to set the tournament alight as a group, one Chelsea player has showcased the talent that might just get their campaign up and running. Ruben Loftus-Cheek...

Petr Cech can give Arsenal the edge they have been missing

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Alejandro Moreno discuss John Terry's comments that Petr Cech could save 12 to 15 points a season for Arsenal if his transfer is completed.
The ESPN FC crew respond to your questions in regards to who will be in the Premier League top four next season, and whether or not Petr Cech's future will be at Arsenal.

Arsenal have made a statement of intent for the coming season by attempting to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. If the move is finalized, manager Arsene Wenger will fill one of his squad's weaker positions with a decorated player who's won the Premier League and Champions League.

Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina have served Arsenal adequately, but neither is of the calibre that Arsenal require to challenge for the biggest prizes.

John Terry, Cech's captain at Chelsea, illustrated the goalkeeper's...
