Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng buddies up to Jay Z in New York

Boateng is currently unwinding in New York where, among other things, he spent Sunday afternoon touring around Liberty...

The ESPN FC panel explore the value for money for transfers in Europe in regards to which position may or may not have the best monetary return for European clubs.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and the Bayern Munich midfield failed to make an impact against Augsburg.
Bayern need depth at full-back, but the future of Bastian Schweinsteiger is their biggest question mark at present.

Toby Charles: The man who brought German football to the U.S.

German football wasn't too popular back in 2002 when I started writing for ESPN. There weren't many places where you could regularly find English-language content about the game's culture and history, or stories other than match reports and transfer news.

Many readers of the site (Soccernet as it was back then) said they were craving information about German football because they had become hooked on it during the 1970s and 1980s thanks to a weekly programme on American television called "Soccer...
