The Arsenal manager has spoken out once again to offer an explanation about why Mesut Ozil is not firing on all cylinders and to defend him against what the Frenchman sees as unfair criticism of his number 11, as a report by Arsenal.com reveals. The Prof clearly feels that Ozil needs a bit of time [.
NewcastleUnited captain Fabricio Coloccini has come out in the program notes for tomorrow's game, and has asked the Newcastle fans to support the team against Hull City. Fabricio Coloccini asks for support from fans It'sinteresting that Alan Pardew has not come out and asked for the support of the fans, and we think it's [.
A surfeit of superb games are on offer this weekend, as clubs across Europe begin to get stuck in totheir respective domestic leagues.
Some are desperate to atone for a stuttering start, others keen to continue a prosperous beginning to their seasons. And withthe league table beginning to take shape in some nations, there are opportunities to make some big statements early on in the campaign.
Steve Bruce knows all about what it's like to supportNewcastle United he grew up in Newcastle like a lot of us supporting the lads and of course he did spend a difficult time managing Sunderland, from 2009-2011, before he was fired. Steve Bruce - Hull City manager'sblastat north-east media The Corbridge-born 53 year-old [.
It is not good news for Arsenal on the injury front by any means, with Arsene Wenger already having to cope with plenty of missing players already this season, but it could definitely have been worse. I certainly feared the worst after all the Arsenal players that missed the Champions League defeat in Germany on [.
Last season, we saw a lot of this from Southampton's attack...
But once "this," left for Champions League football, Southampton supporters were left asking themselves, now what? Who could possibly fulfill the rolls of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana, and who could partner with Jose Fonte at center-back?
There's little doubt who the star of Chelsea's superb start to the season is. Diego Costa's seven goals in his first ever four games for the Blues helped Mourinho's side to maximum points from their opening four fixtures in the Premier League. A ruthless striker was the missing ingredient from Chelsea's push towards the title last season with Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o all failing to consistently find the back of he net.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says that striker Diego Costa will return up front for Chelsea against Premier League champions Manchester City in a huge match on Sunday.
Costa has made a brilliant start to his Chelsea career, scoring seven times in four Premier League matches already. But the £32 million signing from Atletico Madrid was only a substitute in Wednesday night's 1-1 draw with Schalke as he his not ready to play more than one game a week, after aggrevating a hamstring problem while on international duty earlier this month.
Arsenal fans may have had a bit more to shout about int the transfer market over the last year or so, but at the end of each window, us fans and the football media are still left scratching our heads as to why Arsene Wenger did not sign, for instance, a striker or a defensive [...]
Last weekend was a surreal one for me. I spent most of the afternoon in York, as well as the morning in Edinburgh and the evening in Manchester. It was surreal because I was there on a Premier League Saturday, but there was little to no evidence of anything Premier League-related going on in the country that is the home to the world's most popular sports league (and the birthplace of the game).
It's taken him over a month to build up the courage to talk about it, but Ashley Young has finally opened up and broken his silence over the infamous "bird poo" incident that he suffered against Swansea on the opening day of the season.
The bilious anger caused byUnited getting their campaign off to a losing start at Old Trafford was quickly overshadowed when Vine clips suddenly flooded social media which appeared to show Young taking a globule of bird poo directly in the mouth.
Javier Hernandez has said that he left Manchester United because the club didn't believe in him and he has embraced the opportunity of making the most of his season-long loan at Real Madrid.
Having played a pivotal role in United's title-winning campaigns in 2011 and 2013, Hernandez fell out of favour under David Moyes last season, making only six starts before being shipped out on loan on transfer deadline day this summer.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has launched an impassioned defence of under-fire midfielder Mesut Ozil, insisting that the German World Cup winner should not be used as a "scapegoat" for Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League defeat away to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
With FC Dallas still sitting on 10 red cards for the season, some were wondering where they would rate over the past five years in MLS compared to the league's current other 18 members? Well, here's said breakdown:
TORONTO FC VS. CHIVAS USA BMO FIELD - SUNDAY 3PM ET TV: SPORTSNET 360 In solidarity with the dozens of fans of Chivas USA who likely face at least one full season without a club, we will honour our Goat enthusiast friends this weekend by doing what Major League Soccer will do to them. We are going on: HIATUS

Manchester City will attempt to knock Chelsea off their perch at the top of the English Premier League when the two teams meet in the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Both clubs are coming off disappointing mid-week performances in the UEFA Champions League, but with an extra day of rest, Man City are hoping that their home form can help lead toChelsea's first defeat of the season.
Hey y'all, checking in with another piece bringing some soccer issues to a general audience light. This time it's college soccer training limitations and reform. I know you know enough to get the gist of it, but I did have Andrew Wenger and Jordan Morris among others weigh in – figured you'd want their $.
The Harrisburg City Islanders upset the Major League Soccer bound Orlando City FC in the opening round of the United Soccer League – Pro playoffs advancing to play the Richmond Kickers in the semifinals.

As the FIFA 15 pre-release hype continues to gather apace, here's the latest EA Sports teaser viral which sees the game's UK cover star Eden Hazard press-ganged into demonstrating the new raft of skill and flair moves available,including some nice little Zidane-esque roulettes and a Zlatan-esque hamstring-twanger of a flying backheel volley.
Liverpool travel to London on Saturday evening as they aim to thrive off their Champions League win over Ludogorets earlier in the week. Brendan will face Sam Allardyce's West Ham side who currently find themselves 13th in the league.
The injury list for Liverpool is still a pretty long one.
Something about Lee Nguyen is different this year.
He knows it, his coach knows it, and anyone who's regularly watched the Revolution this year knows it, too. But Nguyen, who leads the Revolution with 13 goals and is already being touted as a potential league MVP candidate, hasn't offered too many specifics about his success in 2014, opting instead to praise his teammates and the hard work he's put in at practice.
La Trinca Fresera sin muchas alternativas, navega en el peldaño 11 con 8 puntos y con un descalabro más, prácticamente estará fuera de liguilla ya que para aspirar a una calificación requeriría ganar todos los puntos restantes.
El Correcaminos se encuentra en la posición 6 con 12 puntos y aunque está en zona de calificación, su situación no es firme, muy cerca de la línea fronteriza y si pierde saldrá de la zona y entonces se comprometerá y requerirá jugar por arriba del 50% de efectividad el resto del torneo para pretender liguilla.
