Sir Alex Ferguson's misguided view of Manchester United's squad

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

English football's literary season continues. Just as the embers die on Roy Keane's firestorm from a fortnight ago, back comes his latter-day nemesis, Sir Alex Ferguson, with the paperback version of last year's blockbusting autobiography.

"United In Transition" is the name of the additional chapter to Ferguson's tome, released on Thursday. The former Manchester United manager has clearly struggled to wean himself off day-to-day involvement, and cannot resist reopening a few theatres of war to defend...

New chapter added to Van Gaal's fluid football vs. Mourinho's pragmatism

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are prepared to play Manchester United this weekend.

Louis van Gaal had only been Barcelona manager for a few months and, although he already knew the young Jose Mourinho offered much more than just being a translator, he hadn't realised just how much. That would come, but thanks to an unlikely source.

It was September 1997 and the Catalans were preparing for a Champions League away match with Newcastle United. Before the game, Van Gaal's then-assistant, Gerard van der Lem, had been discussing the English side's attack, and was rather dismissive....

Mario Balotelli shirt storm, Neymar case dropped before Clasico

ESPN's Fernando Palomo highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each side ahead of El Clasico.

TOP FIVE STORIES

1. Neymar case dropped (Monday, Oct. 21)

In between all the post-weekend analysis, previews of a Champions League week and pre-Clasico build-up, the news that the Barcelona member who brought legal proceedings against the club for allegedly concealing the true cost of signing Neymar had dropped his case was buried somewhat. Jordi Cases' accusation -- that Barca hid payments over and above the official 57.1 million-euro fee -- led to an unprecedented opening up of the books on the...

Angel Di Maria holds the key to defeating Chelsea's midfield

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

Well, here it is: the first formidable test of Manchester United's season, and one that finds them in uncertain health. Chelsea, their visitors, arrive in a mercifully weakened state, with both of their best forwards -- Diego Costa and Loic Remy -- diminished by injury.

While Remy looks likely to miss out on Sunday's game at Old Trafford, the state of Costa's fitness remains unclear. The Spain international, who has nine league goals already this season, was rested for his team's 6-0 victory over...

Manchester United-Chelsea reunites Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho

Louis van Gaal believes Manchester United can still win a Premier League title. The ESPN FC panel think otherwise.

When Britain's football writers held a gala dinner in honour of Jose Mourinho this year , Louis van Gaal stood up to pay a handsome tribute to the talent and loyalty of his old Barcelona sidekick.

At that stylish evening in a swanky London hotel, Van Gaal had only the Netherlands and the World Cup on his mind. Little did we know then that the two friends would soon be locking horns in an Old Trafford confrontation between Manchester United and Chelsea.

The only safe bet is that they will share a...

Real Madrid prepare to sign Javier Hernandez to permanent deal

With three goals in just four league outings, Chicharito has convinced Real Madrid to loosen the purse strings...

Wait, the transfer window is closed? That's news to the Transfer Talk crew. There are still plenty of transfer-related rumours around the world!

Carlo signs off on Chicharito

After just four appearances in their famous white kit, Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid have been sufficiently impressed with Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez to want to tie him down to a permanent deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Daily Express says that there is an option-to-buy clause in the Manchester United man's loan deal...
