UEFA is finally catching up with the times and adopting goal line technology, like pretty much every other major competition out there already has. They will use it beginning in this summer's European Championships an din next year's Champions League.

With the banning of UEFA's president, Michel Platini, they will need to elect themselves a new one. They will wait to do so however, until after the appeal of his eight year suspension is heard.  Platini has also withdrawn from the upcoming elections for FIFA president.

Good news for Barcelona s they expect to ge Lionel Messi back for this weekend's clash with Malaga. Unfortunately, Neymar will not make the trip. He is feeling "muscle pain" and is not able to play.

Javier Chicharito Hernandez and Carli Lloyd have been named CONCACAF Players of the Year. They are both first time award winners. In otehr CONCACAF awards, the USA swept the goalkeepr of the year vote with Tim Howard and Hope Solo both winning. They only reason that Keylor Navas from Costa Rica didn't win was because he didn't play in any CONCACAF competition this year, he was injured for the Gold Cup. Panama's Hernan Dario Gomez and the USA's Jill Ellis were the coaches of the year. Finally, The Americans had two players show up in the Best XI. Tim Howard and Michael Bradley were there. Meanwhile Solo, Lloyd, Becky Sauerbrunn, and Alex Morgan were on the female Best XI.

Yesterday, I mentioned that the NASL is expected to announce at least one west coast expansion team in the coming weeks. It certainly looks like San Francisco will be one of them. The group behind the city's expansion bid has sent out a logo to the media. It isn't bad. It's pretty unique with their use of triangles and it has a strong color scheme of red, silver, and black.
