Only one man can save Major Leeds Soccer from relegation and that man is Big Sam

Relegation-threatened Leeds United have sacked manager Javi Gracia and appointed veteran coach Sam Allardyce until the end of the season, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

With four games left, only a superior goal difference is keeping 17th-placed Leeds out of the relegation zone after taking only one point from their last five games.

Allardyce will be the club's third coach this season after American Jesse Marsch was sacked in February.

Sergiño Dest heading to the Bundesliga? Here is what we know

I don't know if Sergiño Dest likes Berlin, but the idea of living there during the 2023-24 season is starting to take shape for the U.S. international.

According to several reports in Germany and Spain, the player who is on loan at AC Milan from FC Barcelona has reportedly agreed to a new loan deal with Union Berlin in the Bundesliga.

Gareth Bale hints at a possible return with newly promoted Wrexham

Season 2 of Welcome to Wrexham is going to be absolutely insane with coverage of the club's wild FA Cup run and historic National League title, but just imagine a third season, covering Wrexham's 2023-24 League Two campaign, with a 34-year-old Gareth Bale starring after coming out of retirement. 

That idea seemed entirely preposterous as recently as Monday — when you have a nickname like "The Golfer" you're likely enjoying your time off — but then Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney shared a video of Bale congratulating him on the promotion.

Julie Ertz makes NWSL return with Angel City

All signs pointed to a quick return to the NWSL after Julie Ertz made a surprising comeback with the USWNT, and on Monday we got confirmation of Angel City FC signing her to a one-year contract.

Chelsea want to get rid of eight players this summer, Pulisic among those on the chopping block

Chelsea spent some serious cash in the latest transfer windows and it seems they will continue this summer. But in order to comply with financial fair-play rules, the team needs to cut a few players from their current squad. 

Reports from England say the club already has a list of eight men ready to be offered in some sort of "summer fire sale."

Is Chelsea selling Christian Pulisic?

Officially, the club hasn't mentioned the players' names, but insiders have some guesses as to who is on the chopping block. And USMNT star Christian Pulisic is among them. 

¿De vuelta a la Liga MX? El equipo mexicano que podría repatriar a Eugenio Pizzuto

La carrera de Eugenio Pizzuto en Europa ha sido corta y sin muchas luces. Por lo mismo, y con la esperanza de ser tomado en cuenta para el proceso rumbo al Mundial de 2026, el joven mexicano estaría buscando regresar al país para tener minutos, protagonismo y una chance de llegar al Tri.

¿Eugenio Pizzuto al América?

Pese a no brillar en el viejo continente, Pizzuto estaría despertando el interés de varios de los equipos más importantes del fútbol mexicano. Y el rumor que más suena lo pone en la órbita de las Águilas del América. 

While Los Blancos were beating Chelsea, Real Madrid loanee Brahim Díaz was lifting Milan over Napoli

In beating Napoli 1-0 in their Champions League quarterfinal first leg at the San Siro, Milan exemplified all the UCL cliché's that Real Madrid have entirely owned and turned into bonafide pieces of wisdom over the last decade. Hell, Milan even used a Real Madrid loanee to get it done.  

Cliché No. 1, you need to be street wise — basically you need to be in the mold of Theo Hernández.

A Frank Lampard managerial return to Chelsea could be great news for Christian Pulisic

In a shocking twist to Chelsea’s managerial merry-go-round, the London club is talking to former player and manager Frank Lampard for a potential reunion. Lampard would be a caretaker manager until the end of the season as the club figures out a long-term manager.

Lampard oversaw Chelsea from July 2019 through January 2021 when he was replaced by Thomas Tuchel. Lampard then spent a year managing Everton from January 2022 until January 2023. He was sacked after Everton sat 19th in the league.

Aman sus goles: Los clubes que se pelean a Santi Giménez

La campaña debut de Santiago Giménez en el fútbol europeo ha sido de ensueño. Pese a que no comenzó de titular y al golpe anímico que significó no ir al Mundial de Catar 2022, Bebote poco a poco ha ido conquistando los corazones de los aficionados del Feyenoord, a la vez que empieza a despertar el interés de otros equipos del Viejo Continente.

El delantero mexicano lleva 16 goles (9 en la Eredivisie) y se acerca a la marca de 20 que tienen Luis García y Javier Hernández, los mexicanos más efectivos en su primera temporada en el Viejo Continente.

I think Messi's going to Miami after watching Lyon beat a soulless PSG

There was an interesting moment during Saturday's MLS 360 show when analyst Shep Messing said he had "inside info" on a Lionel Messi move to MLS and that "it is going to happen and it's going to happen soon."

Like any great amateur sleuth, I then carefully watched PSG's home match against Lyon on Sunday looking for clues. I think I found them: Messi wants to get out of Paris like a bat out of hell.
