Headlines
Middlesbrough are fighting relegation in their first season back in the Premier League and have sacked manager Aitor Karanka. He successfully led Boro's promotion efforts last year after narrowly missing the jump two years ago. Turns out he is not the man for the Premier League, yet. Assistant Steve Agnew will step in while a permanent successor is sought out.

The USMNT was forced to make a change to their World Cup Qualifying roster. Brad Guzan will miss the two matches for the birth of his second child. A fair reason to miss a couple games he probably wouldn't play in anyway. He is replaced by San Jose's David Bingham. Fabian Johnson also may miss out thanks to an injury picked up yesterday in Europa League action, but no official word has come out yet.

Paul Pogba is the next big name Premier League player to go down with injury. He suffered a hamstring knock in Manchester United's Europa League win over Rostov and expects to miss this weekend's Premier League match against Boro as well as France's games against Luxembourg and Spain during the interlull. The club hopes to have him back after the week off.
