Headlines
After saying that he could simply quit Manchester United, Louis van Gaal is saying he will not resign his post after yesterday's scoreless draw against Chelsea. It was rumored that he would be fired had yesterday's match resulted in a defeat.

Real Madrid made one final appeal to remain in the Copa del Rey competition and that appeal has been denied. The club was booted from the tournament after having used a suspended player for the first half of their match against Cadiz. They could continue the process of trying to get back in, but that would involve suing the Spanish Football Federation in a civil court, which would probably take way too long and not be worth the effort.

With their transfer ban finally about the be lifted, Barcelona are looking to shore up their reserve squad with some fresh signings. They made a big deal about three new players coming on to their B team, and then promptly cut one of them hours later. Sergi Guardiola had his contract revoked after it was discovered that he made some anti-Barcelona, pro-Real Madrid, and anti-Catalan tweets... more than two years ago. Call me crazy and naive, but if this player was really worth something, wouldn't a couple of tweets from a couple years ago be irrelevant? I could launch myself on a rant concerning people's over-sensitivity to social media, but I'll spare you.
