If you consider all the positions and places in the world Mexico full-back Miguel Layun has played, it can be hard not to place blame on someone whose fingerprints can be found all over when things go wrong. That's especially true for Layun because "todo es culpa de Layun." That is to say, "it's all Layun's fault," a hashtag-worthy grievance that originated with his arrival, aged 21, to Club América in 2009 when critics deemed him unworthy of wearing the colors of one of Mexico's most successful...

Barca prevailed 4-2 at Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday to capture the league crown with four games still remaining.
Deulofeu scored one goal and set up another in 10 league appearances for the Calatan giants before joining Premier League side Watford in January on loan until the end of the...
LIVERPOOL -- Three thoughts from Anfield on Liverpool's 5-0 win over Watford in the Premier League.
1. Liverpool bounce back in style
