David Moyes says he is still learning what it takes to be Manchester United manager but he thinks predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson was still learning until the moment he retired from the job.

Brendan Rodgers praised Luis Suarez's performances as he returned to the Liverpool team from his 10-match biting ban. The Reds boss was pleased with what he saw, and he is expecting even more from the Uruguay international in the coming weeks. Rodgers said: "I thought he was excellent. "I thought, considering he's been out for [.
Chelsea veteran Frank Lampard says he hasn't been told yet whether he will win his 100th cap for England in tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. The 35-year-old is set for the milestone it once appeared he might fall just short of reaching. Asked if manager Roy Hodgson had told him whether he would be [.
Swansea fans delivered a chant of "we thought you were dead" to Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie during Saturday's match. The song was a reference to comments made by Sir Alex Ferguson last season. The former United boss claimed that Van Persie was lucky to be alive after Swans defender Ashley Williams kicked the [.
Manchester United manager David Moyes stayed tight-lipped on Wayne Rooney's future after his side's 5-2 win over Hong Kong outfit Kitchee. Moyes indicated that there were no further developments since the champions had told the media that Rooney is not for sale. He said: "I couldn't give you any more update than already I've said [.
The problem with relocating Manchester City away from Rusholme's Curry Mile is that good food just isn't as easy to come by as it once was for the club's players. That's the verdict of captain Vincent Kompany, who's detected some hunger among the squad. We jest, of course. Vinny is merely making the requisite pre-season [.
Spurs centre-back Michael Dawson showed he's not too shabby with a cricket bat after a session in the nets with England bowler Stuart Broad. Dawson said: "It's been a long time since I've had a game of cricket. "When I put the pads on and the glove and what have you, get down and then [...]
Manchester United are hoping to tie Wayne Rooney down to a new contract that would keep him at the club "well into his thirties", according to a club source. The England striker's future has been uncertain since he reportedly asked for a transfer at the end of last season. He was linked with moves to [.
Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams has thrown his hat into the ring to be the club's next manager and indicated that he thinks Arsene Wenger's days are numbered.

Lukas Podolski has only just ended his on-off 17-year relationship with FC Cologne and he's already plotting a tattoo in honour of his new flame. But the Germany international isn't going to rush any decision to mark his affection for new club Arsenal in ink. Asked whether a Gunners' tattoo to match his Cologne one [.
Due to the fact that for the close of the transfer window we had a game following up a few short
days later, we didn't get much of a chance to have a good look at what Arsenal achieved during the
window. Sure, at the moment the team is looking pretty solid defensively, and that just goes to
show that the key to success does not revolve around signing expensive, world-class players
whenever we lose some games.
Jack Wilshere (The new Paul Gascoigne) by JC (This is a Guest Post from our Arsenal Fans Blog Hello
fellow gooners. Today I would like to talk about one of the finest talents to come out of England
in a long time. But first to people that will come on here and say don't put [...]
Well, it's Thursday and you have to think preparations for this weekend's game against Stoke are
well and truly underway on the training ground. With that in mind, those anxiously awaiting the
arrival of Nuri Sahin, or indeed anyone else, might need to consider the fact that should anything
go through it's happening so late that their participation on Sunday would have to be in doubt.
It's finally been confirmed and Santi Cazorla is now officially an Arsenal player. We don't have
to wait any longer and that's a huge sigh of relief. This signing has created a big buzz around the
fandom because unlike the ones we've done in previous season, this was a signing of real
Yes, a new day awaits us all. By now you are well aware of the latest development in the brief
but cracking existence of Chelsea Offside. In short, this space, in just a few hours, will be no
more. A redirect and a lovely archive at our new home, We Ain't Got No History will be all that's
left of this small slice of the web I called home for a good long time.
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has praised his under-fire England colleague Joe Hart, saying he is "top drawer". Manchester City keeper Hart's form over the past 12 months has been questioned by many critics, not least his new club boss Manuel Pellegrini, who suggested that reserve keeper Costel Pantilimon could challenge for his first-team spot.
The girlfriend of Manchester City benchwarmer Scott Sinclair has revealed she has to hit the supermarket every single day to keep up with his eating habits. Former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan mentioned her daily shopping trips on behalf of the former Swansea man in her first column for Star magazine.
A decent Premier League programme meant last night's Copa Del Rey clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona was Sky Sports' least-hyped El Clasico in a very long time. This humorous moment from the match saw Gerard Pique attempted to complain to the referee that he'd been hit by a lighter thrown by Real Madrid fans.
West Ham captain Kevin Nolan has done his best to bring any Hammers hanging on to the memories of their 'World Cup-winning' squad by saying manager Sam Allardyce deserves to be a top club. The midfielder, who had previously played under Allardyce at Bolton, reckons Big Sam deserves to leave the East London minnows behind [.
A comprehensive, 90-minute performance was just what the doctor ordered for the ailing
Revolution, and that's just what went down on Wednesday night against the Columbus Crew. For the
first time in a long time (if at all) this season, Jay Heaps' squad not only limited the petty
mistakes that have cost them so many points this year, but they also pressed high, played physical,
and controlled the tempo.
Spain begins it's World Cup qualifying campaign this week in Georgia and Iker Casillas feels it
is vital that the defending champions get this new qualifying campaign off to a winning start.
"We need to get the three points because we have some important games coming up, so we have to
beat Georgia as they have already got a win under their belt and we must hit the ground running"
Thank you for the feed back on the last preview and with that feed back I will do my best to try
to have the same format.
With the win last Friday the Portland Timbers finally climbed out of the cellar and now they
need to get a result on the road to stay out of it. Colorado has not been a place Portland has
looked forward to traveling to with each game they have played at the Dick ending in 3-0
1. Leeds in Norwich: Leeds United haven't been relevant to fantasy football for a long time.
Indeed, since their relegation in 2003, United haven't even been relevant to real football. Leeds
used to be really good, but now they're managed ...

Over the years we have repeatedly written about efforts to build stadium for the Earthquakes in
San Jose.Â After multiple fits and starts, the team appears to cross the final hurdles and appears
ready to start the construction process. Â San Jose city officialsÂ approved theÂ Planned

Roger Espinoza will be back with his national team midweek next week for an international date.
Honduras will be taking on Argentine club side, Boca Juniors in Miami on Wednesday August 15th.
Espinoza is one of 6 MLS players that have been called up for the game. The good news for Kansas
City is that for the first time in a long time they don't have a midweek game this week so Espinoza
is unlikely to miss any games with this call up as he should be back with the team for their game
against Toronto on the 18th at BMO Field.
It's been a long time since DC has had success against Sporting Kansas City, but with KC perhaps
tired and a little banged up after their midweek penalty kick win over Seattle for the US Open Cup,
DC just might find some very valuable points in the playoff hunt. SKC had to go the full [...]
Following two successive victories to start the season, Everton manager David Moyes has hailed
his current squad as one of the best he's seen at Goodison Park in quite some time. The blue half
of Merseyside can be thrilled with their side's rampant start to the season, including an opening
day win against giants Manchester United.
London 2012 sprint champion Usain Bolt has dropped some not-so-subtle hints that he'd like a trial
at Manchester United. The Jamaican has been sidling up to United for a long time. As long ago as
2009 he visited their training ground. But he's now stepped it a gear by pretty much begging Sir
Alex Ferguson [.
FIFA have actually made a decision. Nope, it's not April Fool's Day.
Like much of South East Asia, Thai club Si Sa Ket have been dicking FIFA round for a pretty long
time. They were ordered to pay former coach David Booth $225,000 back in February but of course
they never bothered. (Complete story can be found here).
Whilst I hope the feeling at the end of last season sticks with our players for a long time,
serving as the motivation for them to work even harder, I have spent the past couple of months
trying to pretend that 2011-2012 didn't happen. We didn't drop eight points behind then go eight
points clear, only to lose it all with the last kick of the game at the Etihad.
The Indonesia Super League is mumbling about starting up again in November. There was initially
talk that a unified league would kick off in January but given the lack of progress on that
particular front the ISL seems to want to go it alone placing it on another collision course with
FIFA and the AFC.
