STORY OF THE DAY!
Man United humbles Galaxy 7-0 before 86,432 fans
by Paul Kennedy on Thursday, Jul 24, 2014 1:21 AM EDT
[INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLIES] Manchester United showed it had no problem adapting to the system of new Dutch manager Louis van Gaal, pounding the LA Galaxy, 7-0, before 86,432 fans at the Rose Bowl. Both teams subbed liberally and most of the goals came late in the two halves, but the result demonstrated the enormous difference in the depths of the two clubs. Of the five EPL-MLS matchups, the best result for the home team was the Columbus Crew's 2-2 tie with Crystal Palace.

World Cup final ref gets big call wrong, punishes the victim, neglects concussion dangers
Of course there were concussion-incidents during the World Cup. Given that there are head-clashes in virtually every game of soccer that is ever played, that was to be expected.

"As a player, the odds are diminishing by the hour. It wasn't something that was planned like that. I always envisioned coming back someday and having a year or two in MLS, but the years are catching up with me now, so the odds decrease as the days go by."

-- American goalkeeper Brad Friedel, who at age 43 has re-signed with Tottenham Hotspur, on the prospects of finishing his career in MLS. (MLSSoccer.com)
