Scholes believes English clubs have chance to win CL post Real selling major players

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is of the opinion that Real Madrid has left themselves vulnerable to defend their Champions League title by selling midfielders Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria and opened the door to an English winner. Carlo Ancelotti's side are aiming to be the first team for 25 years to retain the European Cup, but Scholes does not think their transfer activity this summer has made them any stronger.

Premier League v Bundesliga in Europe... which country comes out on top?

Heard that before? One suggestion was to have the 20 teams from two nations play each other in order of position - 1st versus 1st, 2nd versus 2nd and so on - and calculate a score based on the outcomes. This Ryder Cup style scenario will never happen, of course, but this week we will see an Anglo-Germanic playoff of sorts on the continental stage.

Alonso a hit after only two matches with Bayern Munich

Berlin, Sep 16 Xabi Alonso's Bayern Munich career has barely begun, but Julius Caesar's veni, vidi, vici applies equally well to the Spaniard's arrival in Germany, as he has become the Bavarians' on-field leader after only two games. Alonso did not have much time to adapt to his new team.

Rio Ferdinand's Book Hints at Attitude Problems Under Moyes at Manchester United

Of all the players who would break ranks and seriously criticise the David Moyes reign at Manchester United , Rio Ferdinand was always a likely to be first. Released in the summer and seemingly unhappy that he didn't have the chance to say goodbye to the Old Trafford fans, Ferdinand was the most likely candidate to lift the lid on Moyes' time at United, as he has done in his book, the rather depressingly titled '#2Sides', serialised in The Sun this week.

Ancelotti hopes to kick-start Madrid's season

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes Tuesday's Champions League Group B opener at home to Basel will be a good chance for the holders to put a poor start to their domestic campaign behind them. Madrid were beaten 2-1 by champions Atletico Madrid at the Bernabeu on Saturday, their second successive La Liga reverse, and some of the club's notoriously demanding fans made their anger clear by roundly whistling captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

Injuries leave Dortmund counting on Kagawa

Borussia Dortmund are in the grip of an injury crisis coming into their home clash with Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday and with a Champions League clash with Arsenal just around the corner. With Marco Reus, Nuri Sahin and Jakub Blaszczykowski among those already out, captain Mats Hummels struggling for fitness and Ciro Immobile a minor doubt, the last thing coach JurgenKlopp needed was the news that Shinji Kagawa had to withdraw from training on Thursday with a groin problem.

First win of season for Louis Van Gaal's Man Utd

"This is the start of the new Manchester United," trumpeted Louis Van Gaal after his expensively rebuilt side kick started its Premier League campaign with a 4-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford Sunday. A defeat and two lackluster draws prior to the international break had left the English powerhouses languishing near the foot of the standings, but this was the first match when all his new signings were in action.
