Headlines
The MLS All Stars will face off with an English club from North London for the second year running. This time it's Arsenal coming to America to face the best this country has to offer. Arsenal's reserves (since all the main players will be work out from Euros) will play two matches stateside, the All Star Game being the first on July 28 in San Jose. Three days later they take on Chivas de Guadalajara at Stub Hub Center in Los Angeles.

The Bundesliga is taking a step forward that we don't normally see from European leagues. The top division in Germany is hoping to get a two year trial period for instant replay approved by FIFA at their next general board meeting on March 5. No details about how such a system would work were reported, but anything that helps the game to better officiated is fine by me.

Sunderland's Adam Johnson is evidently an absolute scumbag of a human being. After pleading guilty to two counts of sex with a minor, his contract has been rightfully terminated by his club.

A couple of English clubs have signed extensions with key members of their squads. First off, Stoke have extended Bojan Krkic for four and a half years. Dmitri Payet is also staying at West Ham until 2021 thanks to the new deal he penned in East London.

Paris-St. Germain is going to win Ligue 1 by a large margin and stands to make a run at the Champions League as well. As a result, they have signed their manager Laurent Blanc for an additional two years. Blanc has lead PSG to a pair of Ligue 1 titles already with this year's title on its way in.
