Antonio Conte needs to use his creativity, boldness to fix Chelsea

Craig Burley says Chelsea players should sit down with Antonio Conte to discuss their issues, not go to the press.
The FC panel delve into the reports that Chelsea's players may be unhappy with manager Antonio Conte.
The experts at the ESPN FC desk talk Chelsea's 3-3 draw with Roma as Antonio Conte's men have let in five goals in all competitions since coming back from the international break.
The FC crew answer your tweets on Chelsea's defensive issues, Manchester United's style of play and Atleti's UCL struggles.
Antonio Conte hit back at Jose Mourinho's comment that he won't 'cry' like other managers have about dealing with injuries.

If you want to see the glass as half-full, Eden Hazard's late equalizer against Roma meant that Chelsea avoided their third consecutive defeat in all competitions. To find the last time that happened, you have to go all the way back to September 2002: Claudio Ranieri was the manager, Chelsea were still owned by Ken Bates and the club was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

Rationally, such streaks are meaningless, but psychologically, they matter, as Eden Hazard hinted after the game when he...

Promotion and relegation could unlock U.S. soccer's potential - Riccardo Silva

The man behind the 4 billion dollar bid for MLS rights tells Gab Marcotti the lack of promotion-relegation is holding back the US national team.

In June, international media rights company MP & Silva offered Major League Soccer $4 billion in exchange for 10 years' worth of global media rights from 2023, after its current deals expired.

The offer was at least four times higher than the value of the present contracts, but it had some important conditions: It included two lower tiers -- North American Soccer League (NASL) and the United Soccer League (USL) -- and, crucially, MLS would have to commit to a system of promotion and relegation across...

Why Argentina are struggling, France's clutch win, England's formation switch

The FC crew debate what kind of impact Argentina missing the World Cup would have on Lionel Messi's legacy.

So it all comes down to Tuesday night in Quito, at nearly 10,000 feet above sea level. Argentina need to beat Ecuador, otherwise they won't be going to the 2018 World Cup. (A draw might suffice too, but that would require three other results to go their way, and it's not something you want to count on.)

You can blame 101 different factors for why they're in this situation. They've had three different coaches and used 38 different players, suggesting a lack of clear thinking. They've been without...

Premier League foreign rights talks reflect changing times, not just greed

Distribution of the riches associated with TV revenues has led to discussion among Premier League clubs.

On Wednesday, representatives from the Premier League's 20 clubs decided not to decide. Not right now, anyway. A proposal to change the way overseas broadcast rights revenue is divided was not voted on and, accordingly, was adjourned "to allow further discussion."

Which is league-ese for "kicking the can down the road."

The fact that it was up for discussion -- at the behest of Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore -- is significant. For the past two decades, the league has been the...

Man City's defence beats Chelsea, pain in Barcelona, Bayern 'mutiny,' more

Stewart Robson and Alejandro Moreno examine the facets of Man City's game that have propelled them to the top of the table.

Pep Guardiola long made the point that he plays the way he does not because he's wedded to some aesthetic conceit of what good football should be, but because he thinks it's the most effective way to win. Inevitably, given the glut of attacking players in his side, we lazily assume he just wants to win by outscoring the opposition but on Saturday, he showed this was not the case.

Away to Chelsea, City put on a defensive masterclass above all else. The press was crisp and precise, robbing the opposition...

Did Shakhtar Donetsk show teams how to play against rampant Man City?

Manchester City held off Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 to win their second straight game to open Group F.
Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Fabian Delph and promised to play the midfielder more often this season.
Kevin De Bruyne produced something special with this strike to give Manchester City the lead against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Kevin De Bruyne and Fabian Delph talk after their nervy 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.

You don't need to be well-versed in Pep Guardiola's biographies (there are half a dozen) to know that he probably did not get a good night's sleep on Tuesday. It's far more likely that he stayed up agonizing; that's what he does. None of this "six points out of six, we clobbered them in the second half" lark for him, as that's not how he got to be Pep. He doesn't simply wrap himself up in results.

Performance matters more, and he only got that in the second half against Shakhtar Donetsk, when...
