This was the first five day work week I've had since mid-December. I AM EXHAUSTED THIS IS INHUMANE. Good thing I have Monday off! Anyway, here we go.

ENGLAND:

West Ham's shirt sponsor is going broke thanks to the sudden Swiss currency crisis.

Everyone's favorite...something, Jose Mourinho, denies he called Phil Dowd fat after Chelsea's New Year's Day loss.

Radamel Falcao is, to be charitable, not working out so well at Manchester United. Seems Louis van Gaal is about finished with him.

Jermaine Defoe is back in England now, after a short spell in Toronto. What better way to be welcomed back than with...custard?  Note how thrilled he looks.

WORLD:

David Ginola, shampoo commercial star, is going to run against Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency. That'll go well.

Vanishing spray. It's bigger than The Beatles. But its inventor is not seeing any of the profits just yet.

The January transfer window. Is it worth it?

MLS:

MLS had their SuperDraft yesterday, one of the 75 drafts it seemingly holds every off season. Here's a quick recap of how teams fared.

At that same SuperDraft, it was announced that the MLS MVP award will be named after Landon Donovan. The Landycakes MLS MVP Award has a nice ring to it.

OTHER STUFF:

I like statistics. You may not, and I get that. But if you're like me, and want to see the statistical side of the game mature and grow and advance, take a look at this - this is really interesting work from a Portland-area guy who has put a ton of time and work into developing his theory into something that tries to explain the discrete events that comprise the scoring of a goal and the importance of each of those events. If you're so inclined, it's a really interesting read.
