A day before Ringo Starr's new solo album, "Postcards From Paradise," was slated for release, the former Beatle was at the hub of a frenzy of activity. He bounded from one room to the next in his top-floor suite at a West Hollywood hotel, hustling through a string of interviews. His focus was largely on "Postcards From Paradise," a collection of collaborations 26
March 31, 2015 12:31 PM Can Gareth Bale's form for Wales follow him back to Real Madrid?
If Gareth Bale didn't already realise just how fickle the Spanish press can be, he certainly should do when he reports back from international duty to line up for Real Madrid in La Liga against Granada on Sunday lunchtime. Bale left Spain to join-up with Chris Coleman's Wales squad just hours after being on the end of some heavy criticism from the Spanish 16
March 31, 2015 12:31 PM Should Theo Walcott leave Arsenal to get his career back on track?
Theo Walcott will probably start for England against Italy on Tuesday, largely thanks to injuries to Danny Welbeck and Raheem Sterling. Frankly, Walcott was fairly lucky to be selected for the squad in the first place given his relative lack of action this season, and will now get his chance due to others being indisposed. At the moment, that looks like the only way he's going 16

March 31, 2015 12:31 PM Paris Saint-Germain to match the money Man United paid for Di Maria?
As the summer window draws ever closer, the transfer rumours and gossip continue to spread... It wouldn't be wrong to say Angel Di Maria hasn't made the happiest of starts to life in Manchester. His performances on the pitch for United have been mercurial at best, and he isn't quite settled off the pitch, either, with -- amongst other issues -- his family 24

Liverpool will not consider a deal to sell Raheem Sterling this summer even if he refuses to sign a new contract, sources have told ESPN FC.

March 31, 2015 12:31 PM Brazil not ready for Copa America yet but impress with win over Chile
LONDON -- Unless you were vacationing at the International Space Station last summer, you will remember just how Jorge Sampaoli's Chile was one of the sensations of the 2014 World Cup.

March 31, 2015 12:31 PM England vs. Italy may be a friendly but it remains crucial for Roy Hodgson
Perspiration dripped from Roy Hodgson's forehead as he delivered his verdict on England's 2-1 loss to Italy in Manaus, their opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. But he was not sweating on suffering a defeat. The Amazonian heat was oppressive for fans and journalists. His players' drop in energy levels in the second half was wholly understandable 11
