  • Aron Johannsson scored (surprise!) in AZ’s 1-0 home win over Anzhi in the first leg of the Europa League round of 16. The goalkeeper got a hand on Johannsson’s penalty kick, but it skipped over the line anyway. Of course it did.

  • has an oral history of Clint Dempsey’s life and career. Says a childhood friend: "Clint's had a lot of success and met a lot of different people and been a lot of different places, but he doesn’t let a lot of people in unless he knows who you are and what you’re about. That’s why he’s kept a lot of his friends close to him, because we’ve been there since the beginning.”

  • Back at Stoke City after his loan at Barnsley was cut short, Brek Shea explained himself a bit. "I had an altercation with a gentleman and I think the fans took it that I had a go at the club, but I was only frustrated with one guy. I'm over that and happy to be back at Stoke,” Shea said. “I've had a lot of experiences, whether good or bad, and I've got to learn from them.”

  • John D. Halloran examines what went wrong for the U.S. women in their disastrous Algarve Cup campaign.
