Ajax dumped out of Champions League by Rapid Vienna, Monaco cruise

Rapid Vienna celebrate after Louis Schaub scored his first goal.

Rapid Vienna have advanced to the final qualifying round of the Champions League with a shock 3-2 win over Ajax in Amsterdam, a 5-4 aggregate victory.

Rapid, the lowest-ranked team in the non-champions section of the draw, looked to be on their way out a week ago when they trailed 2-1 at home and had been reduced to 10 men. But they found an equaliser to give them hope for the return leg and produced a fine performance to send Ajax tumbling out.

The Austrian side rushed into a shock two-goal lead...

The ESPN FC crew give their picks for which teams will get relegated following the 2015/16 Premier League season.

"I know what QPR as a club are all about having played here over the years. The fans demand 100 percent and that's what I give every time I step on to the pitch,'' Konchesky said.

Theo Walcott can top 100 Arsenal goals this season, says Aaron Ramsey

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley is not surprised with the latest Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger "muppetry" in the FA Community Shield final as both failed to shake one another's hand.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has backed Theo Walcott to break through the 100 goal barrier for the club this season, as the England star looks set to start the season in a central striking role.

Walcott, 26, has been pushing his claims to be a first choice striker in Arsene Wenger's line-up for several years, with the player who made his name in the game as a winger taking his chance in his favoured position as he scored in last May's FA Cup final win against Aston Villa at Wembley.

Wenger has...

Man Utd fall below Man City in UEFA coefficient ranking

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney sits down exclusively with ESPN FC to discuss the importance of integrating the younger players into the first team and what it takes to fit the bill as a Manchester United regular.
While captaining Manchester United is a big honour, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney explains to ESPN FC the pressures and responsibilities that come along with such a coveted title - a title in which he's been primed for over the years by Duncan Ferguson

Manchester United have dropped below their neighbours Manchester City in the UEFA ranking as they count the cost of their absence from Europe last season.

City have never reached the last eight of the Champions League but would be ranked 16th if the "live" coefficient score was used, whereas United are now 20th.

United were ranked 10th at the end of the 2014-15 season, which means they will be seeded in the Champions League playoff draw this month. It also means they are guaranteed to be in pot 2...

FA hit Blackpool with suspended three-point deduction

Blackpool's final game of the 2014-15 season was halted 48 minutes in being eventually being abandoned.

Blackpool have been hit with a suspended three-point deduction following the pitch invasion that forced their Championship clash with Huddersfield to be abandoned in May.

Seasiders supporters entered the field of play in the second half of the season-ending fixture with the Terriers in protest at the club's owners, eventually forcing the game to be called off when they did not move for over an hour.

Last week the Football Association fined the Tangerines £50,000 and decreed they would be made...
