"Chelsea strongly deny offering any player to United. They made a cash bid which was rejected. They're furious with Utd. Statement imminent."

Pretty rich considering they've been publicly tapping up Rooney for about a month now.

Rooney needs to come to America to prove challenge himself in the highest level soccer.

Falcao's been accused of lying about his age, apparently he's 2 years older than he claims:

Monaco won't be happy spending that much money on a player who is that close to 30 as well as the fact that he wouldn't have any re-sale value in the future.

Spurs are Arsenal's biggest rivals. This kid has a Spurs hat and an Arsenal shirt.

Imagine a Cleveland fan wearing a Miami Lebron jersey and a Cav's hat.

Same sources that confirmed the last Fabregas bids say Utd are going for an all or nothing 40m offer.

Regarding all those reports about Thiago being so close to signing for United:

”Man United didn’t talk with me. Bayern was always my first option. Real Madrid tried to sign me? No comment.”


"The truth is that in no moment did United come to us and talk to us. It came from the press, it was always a lie."

And I thought Man City and Chelsea ruined football with their megabids.....

Florentino Perez...the way he's using Marca to come up with bullshit quotes and fake 93m pound offers for Bale is getting stupider by the day. It's worse than the way he pursued Ronaldo.

And apparently they're going to buy Kongdobia from Sevilla only to immediately loan him back for one season.

Landon Donovan - The Queefcore of American Sports.
There's this Felt song called "I Will Die With My Head in Flames" that I sometimes think of when I think of Landon Donovan. Not because he'd like it — it's existential mid-'80s jangle-pop, and his taste trends more toward SUV-Bluetooth music, or whatever you want to call the Venn diagram intersection that includes both T.I. and the Fray.1 A certain type of SoCal white-dude uncoolness has become as central to his image as his rank as the all-time leading scorer for the U.S. men's national soccer team; if you doubt this, please examine the covers of the first two 9-and-up children's biographies to answer an Amazon search for his name. There's Landon Donovan: World-Class Soccer Star, part of Robbie Readers' "No Hands Allowed" series, which shows a sweaty and dumbstruck-looking Donovan peering out of a blue letterbox with an expression that says "I never thought my best friend would total my Jeep." And then there's World's Greatest Athletes: Landon Donovan, on which a Photoshop cutout of Donovan with the contrast jacked way up is unconvincingly triumph-roaring in front of a psychedelic prism-spray that Phish once borrowed from Widespread Panic on the way to Burning Man. Apart from maybe this infamous piece of drinking-fountain erotica that ran in 2002 in the New York Times Magazine, are there any more perfect representations of how Donovan is generally perceived?

The reason I think of "I Will Die With My Head in Flames" when I watch Landon Donovan is simply that he often seems like he is — inwardly, while you look at him — dying with his head in flames. There's a reserve about him, a kind of massive carefulness, that seems to conceal a desperation. In postmatch interviews, you'll occasionally catch him looking so self-conscious that he's almost paralyzed. Whenever that happens, I can't help picturing tiny soccer players running around on a tiny pitch inside his head, waving tiny arms, torches from the neck up.


Rest of article here.
