Highlights

Mob gets their man as Farina shown door

How do you solve a problem like Frank Farina?

Shooting stars so often fizzle out...

As young players jockey to stake their claim as late selections for Ange Postecoglou's World Cup squad, it must be remembered that a precocious talent does not always translate into a productive, lengthy career.

Luis Suarez must win Player of the Year

Awards would be fitting tribute for Liverpool star's transformation from villain to dressing-room favourite.

Jose Mourinho can still prove he is 'Special One'

Chelsea are reeling after Saturday's shock defeat - but they could go on to win Champions League, writes Alan Hansen.

Tombides' death will raise awareness

I didn't know Dylan Tombides, but I mourn for him. It's not right, or fair, that his life should be snatched away before it had really begun, or that his family should have to deal with the gaping hole left by his departure.

Time for Sydney to look at bigger picture

Now is a pivotal juncture for Sydney FC: make changes or go with status quo.

Developing coaches key to raising standards

It’s vital we keep pushing for higher standards in our coaching, and the sharing of knowledge, a critical factor, is not yet an integral part of the culture.
