  3. Leon and Santos eliminate Cruz Azul and America

    Andrea Canales

  5. Criticism unwarranted for struggling Mesut Ozil

    Michael Cox

    In football, the problem with appearing nonchalant is that you're at the mercy of your team's collective performance. When Dimitar Berbatov was challenging for the title, he was relaxed. When battling relegation with Fulham, he was merely lazy. When ...

    Martin Laurence,WhoScored.com

    With Liverpool 2-0 down at home to Aston Villa at the weekend it was clear what the problem was. The side was too stretched in midfield and the burden was on an ageing Steven Gerrard to do the lion's share of defensive work in that area. He was expos...

  9. Moyes welcomes another endangered peer

    Mark Payne

  10. Credit for Southampton too much to ask?

    Chris Rann

    The problem with edited highlights of a game is that they are just that. Edited. Anyone who tuned into the nation's favourite highlights show on Saturday night would have watched the exchanges between Manchester United and Southampton in the 1-1 d...

  11. Di Canio knew the problem, but not the solution

    Kristan Heneage

    "Me, Myself and I" -- the title of a hip-hop classic, and it was also Paolo Di Canio's three favourite topics of conversation. A "character" of English football, his 175 days on Wearside were brief but eventful, just like the fireworks with which ...

    John Duerden

    Fans Down Under woke up early last Sunday to watch the men in the famous gold shirts run rings around a static and passive opposition. The problem was, Australia were in their change strip of blue. Those supporters who went back to bed must have stru...

  14. Mexico now has the problem of too many good players

    David Faitelson

    ... And the next morning, like a dream, everything changed: the attitude, the reviews, the dreams and even the ambitions. Is soccer as simple as the results of a friendly game on a hot night in August in the outskirts of New York? If it isn't, it su...
