Sunderland prepare for daunting tests with Chelsea and Manchester City

The ESPN FC crew discuss Jozy Altidore's situation at Sunderland and who should be considered the MLS MVP.

For Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, the goalless draw at Leicester was a third Premier League game without defeat -- not ideal but encouraging evidence that since crumbling to that 8-0 humiliation at Southampton and then losing 2-0 at home to an ordinary Arsenal, his team had become harder to play.

The fans made their own calculations, though. Visits to all three promoted sides had yielded no goals and just two points. And Tuesday's proceedings in the Champions League brought little comfort; Chelsea...

Ireland fan gets John O'Shea tattoo after losing Euro 2016 bet

Spare a thought for teenage Irish fan Max Charles, who, as the result of a foolhardy footballing wager with his mate, will have to live out his days with a large tattoo of John O'Shea's face inked on his body.

According to, Charles entered into a bet with his friend Vinny Plunkett before the Republic of Ireland's recent 1-1 Euro 2016 qualifying draw with Germany, in which each backed an Ireland player of his choice to score against the recently crowned world champions.

Struggling Sunderland fail to shine at lacklustre Leicester

Sunderland lacked ideas and fluency in their 0-0 draw at Leicester.

What must Kevin Phillips have been thinking as he watched Sunderland's drab draw at Leicester -- two shot-shy teams destined to spend all season near the bottom of the Premier League table.

The Sunderland fans chanted "Super Kev," as if he were still banging in goals for fun. How they must have wished a striker of his calibre were still in red and white stripes. But he is now the Leicester City's coach, with special responsibility for attackers. And as is somewhat evident from a fifth successive...

Sunderland strike force under the microscope in visit to Leicester

The ESPN FC crew discuss Jozy Altidore's situation at Sunderland and who should be considered the MLS MVP.

It is not necessary to be a Sunderland supporter to believe Stan Collymore is infinitely more likeable as a pundit than he ever was as a footballer. But it probably helps.

A glance at his record for the year of 2000, as a player for Leicester City, Sunderland's opponents when Premier League action resumes at the weekend after the inconvenience of internationals, shows why Collymore was not always everyone's favourite striker.

There was the prank with the fire extinguisher that saw the City squad...

Jozy Altidore, the L.A. Galaxy and the curious case of a deleted tweet

After Jozy Altidore scored his 25th international goal on Friday vs. Colombia, he made more news two days later.

Strange things often happen on international weeks as players head off to far-flung destinations to represent their countries. There is often a lot of free time to be filled between games. While some watch movies or play video games, others tweet.

Which brings us to Sunday morning and an interesting message that appeared -- briefly -- on the verified account of United States striker Jozy Altidore, who is with the national team preparing for Tuesday's friendly with Ireland.
