- ESPN apologises after commentator calls Liverpool’s Luis Suárez a ‘cheat’ - ESPN has defended its decision to apologise and hold talks with commentator Jon Champion after he labelled Liverpool striker Luis Suárez a “cheat” in the wake of the striker’s controversial goal against Mansfield Town on Sunday… (The Guardian) - Luis Suarez should not confess handball – Brendan Rodgers - Brendan Rodgers said it was not up to Luis Suarez to admit to handling the ball when he scored Liverpool’s second in the 2-1 FA Cup win over Mansfield. Stags players protested to the officials after the ball struck the substitute’s hand and went in… (BBC Sport) - Chelsea rampant as Ba shines in debut - Clinical, professional, stylish. Those three words succinctly describe Chelsea’s 5-1 demolition of Southampton in the third round of the FA Cup… (ESPN) - Everton the perfect fit for Leighton Baines - Leighton Baines was always going to feature in January transfer speculation, and his incredible 35-yard free-kick against Newcastle on Wednesday night will merely attract more attention – if not from rival clubs, certainly from writers of transfer gossip columns… (ESPN Tactics & Analysis) - Moutinwho? The case against signing Joao Moutinho - Don’t get me wrong, Joao Moutinho is a brilliant player. And I’d love to have him at Spurs. But signing him makes absolutely zero sense. When we first sent covetous glances Porto’s way, we had a very real need for a player like Joao Moutinho. Luka Modric’s departure was imminent, and we obviously needed someone to replace him in our midfield.

The dynamic that worked so well in tough away games against Liverpool and Manchester City has been, in most games, missing, giving Arsenal’s midfield a slightly chaotic look… (The Short Fuse) - Jurgen Klinsmann names roster for January camp - Jurgen Klinsmann has called in 25 players to take part in the United States’ annual January camp and as per usual, the roster is filled with MLS players. As expected, Omar Gonzalez made the squad and will have the chance to become a fixture for the full team, while last year’s rising star Graham Zusi is also on the team that will train for 20 days in Carson, CA before playing Canada in a friendly… (Stars and Stripes FC) And a few Videos & GIFs: - (GIF) Luis Suarez Handles The Ball Before Scoring Against Mansfield, Cue Another Silly Media Storm… (Who ate all the pies) - (Video) Cristiano Ronaldo offers Iker Casillas the Captain’s armband, Casillas resfuses… (Youtube) - (GIF) Robin Van Persie’s Sublime Equaliser For Man Utd Against West Ham… (Who ate all the pies) - (GIF) Kieran Gibbs Volley vs. Swansea… (Reddit)
