STORY OF THE DAY!
Klinsmann has lots of choices for October friendlies
by Paul Kennedy on Tuesday, Sep 30, 2014 9:54 PM EDT
[USA MEN] The pair of international friendlies against Ecuador Oct. 10 and Honduras Oct. 14 should provide U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann an opportunity to look at his full pool of talent for the first time since the World Cup, but there are (always) complications. It will likely require him to call in a larger than normal group of players, some of whom might be made available for only the first or second game. Here's a look at his options.

Tactical fouls and studs-up tackles dangerously overshadowed by diving hysteria
LONDON -- This fatuous business of turning simulation, or diving, into the worst crime that a player can commit continues -- and continues to have ridiculous side effects.

"First of all, we haven't won anything, so right now we don't stack up with anybody. We have a good team. I think the ’98 team I had at D.C. United was the best team in the history of the league. That's my opinion. Others can say what they think. But the quality of the players we had on the field was pretty remarkable.

-- Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena on whether his current squad -- which has a plus-32 goal difference -- may be MLS's greatest ever. (SI.com)
