ESPN FC Player of the Month: Ronaldo, Sanchez or Lacazette?

Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Cristiano Ronaldo are all candidates for October player of the month, but was there any question whom the ESPN FC crew would choose?

Normal service resumed in September when Cristiano Ronaldo picked up the award after Diego Costa's hot start to his Chelsea career earned him honours in August. Europe's top performers in October have been whittled to a three-man short list in consultation with stats website and ESPN FC's writers. Now it's up to you to select which of the three deserves to be named the ESPN FC Player of the Month.

Whether you agree with the nominations or think there are notable omissions, let...

Steven Gerrard's "strange" comments, Real Madrid looking to Hugo Lloris

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Steven Gerrard's recent comments about his club future are quite bizarre given that he is one of the most important players to ever play for Liverpool.

Will Transfer Talk ever run out of rumours for the thirsty transfer minions? Not likely judging from this latest roundup of bits from all about Europe.

Hugo Lloris has a desire to play on the big stage of the Champions League and a move away from beleaguered Tottenham to Real Madrid could be the quickest way to get there.

So long, Lloris

Real Madrid's search to find a suitable backup/replacement for the hot-and-cold Iker Casillas in goal may end up at the doorstep of White Hart Lane.

The Express say Carlo Ancelotti has a strong interest in goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, even though the Frenchman just signed a new five-year deal with Tottenham.

It seems that Lloris wants...

Real Madrid reaping the rewards of an improved Marcelo

The FC team debate whether or not Isco will remain in the starting XI once Gareth Bale returns from injury.

At the end of August the Spanish press were bemoaning the fact that Real Madrid, the European champions, were going into this season with their smallest squad in a decade with just 18 outfield players.

The deep pockets of president Florentino Perez may have helped fund the signings of James Rodriguez, for 71 million pounds, and Toni Kroos, for 24 million pounds, as well as Levante goalkeeper Keylor Navas, but the sales of Angel Di Maria, Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Morata had left manager Carlo Ancelotti...

Luis Suarez Ballon d'Or snub, Real Madrid award sweep controversy

Luis Suarez and former Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto were not among the nominees for the FIFA Ballon d'Or and Coach of the Year awards.

This week's roundup of the biggest and most unusual news stories takes in controversy over award winners and nominees, coaches hitting back and a "fairy-tale" return for one player.


1. Suarez snubbed, Klinsmann boosted (Tuesday, Oct. 28)

When FIFA released the contenders for the 2014 Ballon d'Or (at 4am local time, in order to ensure award partner France Football was the only publication with the 23-man list in print), it was a name that was not included that was the most interesting...

Start Isco or Gareth Bale? A tough choice awaits Carlo Ancelotti

The FC team debate whether or not Isco will remain in the starting XI once Gareth Bale returns from injury.

Carlo Ancelotti faces something of a dilemma in the coming weeks thanks to Isco's recent performances. The Real Madrid manager has stated that Gareth Bale will start when fit, but both the system and the former Málaga midfielder have provided the Italian with food for thought as his side enters a busy period of the season. And surely it is hardly a motivating measure to assure one player of his place in the side at the expense of another who has struck such a rich vein of form?

After Real's 4-1...

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez lays down roots in Madrid

El diario El Mundo reveló la nueva residencia del mexicano en Madrid
On-loan striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez is renting this exclusive home in Madrid.

To prove his case that he will be more than a supersub for Real Madrid, striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, on a season-long loan from Manchester United, has laid down roots in Madrid's pricey Alcobedas district, renting a four-bedroom home worth a reported 7,000 euros ($9,000) per month in the exclusive area known as La Moraleja.

The 500-square-meter home includes a gym, sauna,...
