AUSTRALIA’S Tim Cahill is the eighth highest-paid player in Major League Soccer, earning an annual salary of $3.92 million.

    WE’VE been blessed with Del Piero, Fowler, Yorke and co. But David Villa is another proposition altogether. Here’s why we’re absolutely pumped.

    IF Greg Inglis is feeling any pressure heading into one of the biggest games of his life, then he’s not showing it.

    IF Issac Luke is suspended for Sunday’s grand final, he’ll pay the ultimate price for an overcomplicated system where the punishment doesn’t fit the crime.

    DAVID Villa will touch down in Melbourne next Tuesday and be available to play for Melbourne City in its Round 1 clash against Sydney FC at Allianz .
