Victor Valdes living in sad exile at Manchester United

The ESPN FC crew look at Victor Valdes' difficult situation at Manchester United.

Victor Valdes says that goalkeepers are always alone, emotionally and physically distanced from their teammates.

He admits he's shy, an introvert who likes solitude, and that one of the reasons he loves windsurfing is the feeling of being out there on the sea a long way from land where no one can bother him except the occasional fish swimming past.

FC Ilves manager sacked after ditching game to appear on TV

Keith Armstrong did TV work in Finland for Arsenal's stunning win vs. Man United and was promptly sacked after for failing to coach his team FC Ilves against SJK.

With a Merseyside derby and an Arsenal vs. Manchester United clash on the card, it would appear that last Sunday's Premier League doubleheader proved just too tantalising for one Finnish top flight manager.

14 of the best Jurgen Klopp quotes: Top of the Klopps

Jurgen Klopp has a silver tongue, and is now at Anfield

Not only is the man a master tactician, a fine upstanding coach and one of football's most intriguing individuals, new Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is also an absolute devil with the one-liners.

1. On his slightly less-than-stellar playing days.

"I never succeeded in bringing to the field what was going on in my brain. I had the talent for the fifth division, and the mind for the Bundesliga. The result was a career in the second division."

Roman Abramovich continues to back Jose Mourinho at Chelsea

The ESPN FC crew explain how Jose Mourinho and Chelsea can reverse their poor start to the Premier League season.

It wasn't the first time owner Roman Abramovich had cut through the commotion to make things abundantly clear what the situation was at Chelsea. Except, on this occasion, there was one significant difference, and it represented a first for the club during the Russian's time in charge.

On Monday, Chelsea released a statement giving manager Jose Mourinho a public vote of confidence, insisting that the club would not be sacking him. It was something that had not been done at Stamford Bridge since...
