Hi there, it’s been a whirlwind 36 hours or so for this guy so let’s go to the soccer stuff:
Wayne Rooney lined up for Birmingham job with Ashley Cole and ex-Man Utd team-mate expected to join coaching team: It’s The S*n, but have seen a few other UK journos mentioning this and that it’s done, or close to it. Waiting, seeing, etc.
Ex-D.C. United trainer files $7.5 million lawsuit after firing over hand gesture (WaPo): Well this seems suboptimal.
Messi returns, but Inter Miami eliminated from playoff contention with FC Cincinnati loss (PSW): Ah well, no Rooney, no Messi in the playoffs? Poor MLS.
DCFC shuts out Loudoun, playoff bid will come down to final weekend (Detroit News): Loudoun went out with a whimper, but remain optimistic heading into the offseason.
Anyway, got to get some yardwork in before work work, so talk to you soon!
