I hope everyone is managing the great water main break of 2018 - the glorious year in the future in which our infrastructure is totally not a crumbling hulk of past greatness that is hurtling us towards a dystopian future we are ill-prepared for and even less able to comprehend.

I hope everyone has enough supplies for milk sandwiches as Atlanta prepares for an unplanned-real life sequel to the re-make of Mad Max.

Concacaf has re-branded by telling everyone that they have re-branded. Somehow flopping, poor refereeing, phantom goals, and flopping are not included in this. Their re-brand came complete with a manifesto...
U wot m8? If you only read one story here today read about West Ham and its relationship with hooligan groups that support the team and the drama among the supporters. Relations are... strained to say the least. I’m foreeeeeevvvvver blowing bubbles.

This is a bon goal from Amandine Henry in the SheBelieves Cup:
And then finally... this filthy backheel to give TFC a win against Tigres. The away goal will hurt, but this was a huge goal.
