Headlines
Former England and Liverpool defender has some opinions that a certain sect of Americans may enjoy. He likes the thought of Jurgen Klinsmann taking over as England's manager. The FA has not ruled out another foreign born man to lead the troops into the 2018 World Cup, but is Klinsy interested? Doubtful. He has a fat contract here in the States that goes along with the type of power he wouldn't have in England. The American job is much less stressful compared to the constant pressure applied to the English boss. He seems to have decent job security, if you ask his vocal naysayers. Then there's his luxurious Manhattan Beach home that nobody would want to leave. Most signs point to him staying here.

This has been circulating the rumor mill for a while, but now it appears to be unofficial. New York City is sending Kwadwo Poku to Miami FC of the NASL. NYCFC fans really attached themselves to Poku after his strong play last season, but he has since fallen out of favor in Patrick Viera's regime. No transfer fee was specified, but the word is that it's in the neighborhood of $750,000.

As expected, Neymar is on Brazil's 18 man Olympic roster. He joins Bayern Munich's DOuglas Costa and Shakhtar Donetsk's Fred as the most notable names on the squad. Brazil has one goal for the tournament. It's win or bust for them as they are playing the only tournament they've never won on home soil.
