The guys respond to your tweets about Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal's funds, Lionel Messi's leadership, players who influenced their careers and spying.

In the late 1990s, when Uruguayan midfielder Gus Poyet left Spanish football to join Chelsea, he was given some advice.

"I had a teammate at Zaragoza who had spent four or five years in England, and he told me all the things that I shouldn't do," he said.

"'Don't dive in the area, trying to get a penalty, don't score a goal with your hand, don't try to cheat the ref, don't try to pressure him to give a yellow card to an opponent.'

Marlos Moreno's Manchester City plight an example of joining a European giant too young

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop sifts through all the latest transfer rumours surrounding N'Golo Kante, Callum Wilson and many more in Transfer Rater.

When it comes to promising South American talent, the major European clubs appear to have arrived at a conclusion. The best way to do business is to buy them young, and bring them across the Atlantic as soon as possible.

The plus side of this arrangement is clear. Top-level European football offers a different challenge: The games are played at a greater level of intensity, with less space available on the field. The sooner the player can adapt, the better.

But all of this comes with risks, both...

Rashford and Pogba key beneficiaries of Solskjaer's Man United revolution

During his playing days, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became famous for being a "super-sub," someone who could come off the bench and change a game to devastating effect. In truth, he was three elite footballers in one. Not only was he as decisive a substitute as the sport has seen, he was also good enough to play long stretches of his career as both a starting striker and a playmaker from the right flank.

It is no surprise, then, that Manchester United's startling improvement since his arrival as caretaker...

Man City vs. Liverpool is a Game of Thrones battle of fire and ice

HBO's Game of Thrones is set to conclude in 2019, and fittingly, there is a similarly thrilling contest that will reach its climax at around the same time.

And the two meet on Thursday in the biggest match of the season. 

While George R.R. Martin pitched the White Walkers...

What does 2019 hold for stars like Ozil, Pogba, Pulisic and Hazard?

With Mesut Ozil reportedly missing out on Arsenal's trip to Liverpool, the FC crew assess his future at the club and the issue his wages present.
Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri admitted the club need to make a decision on Eden Hazard's future and that he is only focused on talking to the player about his positioning on the pitch.
With reports Chelsea have bid for over €50 million Christian Pulisic, Craig Burley isn't sure it's the right move for the young American.

Generally, the new year brings hope and the promise of better days, but for these 11 stars, 2019 represents a crossroads of sorts. What does their future hold?

Mesut Ozil (MF, Arsenal)

Where does he stand? The year 2018 started so well for Ozil, with Arsenal surprisingly handing the German a lucrative contract extension until June 2021. But the year has ended badly, with Gunners coach Unai Emery repeatedly overlooking him. The low point was being left out of the squad for the Carabao Cup defeat...
