ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop explains why he doesn't see Usain Bolt's six-week A-League trial as anything more than a piece of commercialism.

Central Coast chief executive Shaun Mielekamp has flown to London this weekend with high hopes of signing a deal for Bolt to undertake a six-week trial. Football Federation Australia must tip in about $900,000 from its marquee fund, established to help clubs sign stars capable of boosting the A-League's profile, for the Mariners to sign the eight-time...

Why World Cups are the worst time to buy a player

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti shares the latest on Cristiano Ronaldo's links to Juventus, including his motives for wanting to leave Madrid. With Croatia and England set to meet in the World Cup semifinals, the FC crew explain why the Three Lions will likely prove too much for Croatia. With France brushing aside Uruguay and Brazil's elimination, the FC crew discuss whether Les Bleus are the clear favourites to win the World Cup.
