Arsenal couldn't do anything more to keep Serge Gnabry in North London

Serge Gnabry
Serge Gnabry marked his senior debut for Germany with a hat trick on Friday.

There are some football fans who are just looking for any stick with which to beat rival clubs. After Serge Gnabry marked his Germany debut with a hat trick against San Marino, supporters of other clubs were quick to mock Arsenal for allowing the young midfielder to leave last summer. However, any criticism of the Gunners is misplaced; Arsene Wenger could not have done any more to keep Gnabry in North London.

This is not a case of Arsenal failing to recognise the talent Gnabry possesses. Few...

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm's birthday could be his last as a player

01 11 2016 Football UEFA Champions League 2016 17 Fight 4 Matchday PSV Eindhoven FC Bayern Munich Philipp Lahm Bayern Munich left and Arjen Robben Bayern Munich
Despite turning 33, Philipp Lahm still has a lot left in the tank and remains a top player globally at his position.

Happy Birthday to Philipp Lahm, Bayern Munich and Germany's World Cup winning captain, who turns 33 on Friday.  

Regarded as "the most intelligent player I've ever trained" by Pep Guardiola and, according to his current maestro Carlo Ancelotti, "Lahm could play until he's 39."    

Apart from an extended loan spell in Stuttgart (2003-05) during his formative years, the Munich-born defender is Bayern through and through, and has lifted every conceivable trophy during his time with the...

Ex-goalkeeper Tim Wiese wants to be WWE's unbeatable bad guy

Tim Wiese says the fans can insult him as much as they like.

Goalkeeper-turned-wrestler Tim Wiese wants be "the bad guy" when he makes his official WWE debut in Munich next month.

What's more, he's been quick to warn his opponents: "I am unbeatable."

The former Hoffenheim and Germany player, 34, switched to wrestling after deciding that he "no longer cares two figs about football."

After extensive training, Wiese is ready for his full WWE debut alongside Cesaro and Sheamus. He told SID: "I will hurt the others -- they won't hurt me. Whoever takes...

Wayne Rooney captain debate is silly, Kimmich ace for Germany, Spain OK

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Wayne Rooney's current form and style of play slow down the youngsters in the England squad.

One of the side effects of living in London and caring about football is that you're never far away from the Wayne Rooney debate. That applies to both versions: the Manchester United one and the England one, which has the delightful coda of also being a captaincy debate.

With this being an international break, the focus was firmly on the latter. Some papers called for him being stripped of the captaincy in favor of John Stones. Others revealed that he was going to be dropped for Tuesday's clash...

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer hits himself in the face with a football

Quite rightly regarded as one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in world football, Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer showed a rare lapse in concentration during Germany's routine 3-0 win over Czech Republic.

As the game moved into the final stages, Neuer was tasked with simply retrieving a loose ball from the back of his net -- a perfectly straightforward skill for a keeper of his calibre, or so you would think.

Germany make it look easy; 'machine' Gianluigi Buffon slips up vs. Spain

While Spain look good in World Cup Qualifying, ESPN FC's Paul Mariner is not convinced by their Group G rival Italy.

Iain Macintosh reviews the opening stanza to this international break to bring us this week's edition of Heroes and Villains.


Germany are making all of this look very easy. Another 3-0 win, their second in two qualifying games thus far, puts them top of Group C, a position they are simply unlikely to relinquish. The Czech Republic joined Norway in Germany's trophy collection, swept aside with barely a second thought. Joachim Low was the subject of considerable criticism for failing to...
