With Barclay's dropping their sponsorship after next season, the EPL will go without a title sponsor for '16-'17 after they balked at the price that spirits (alcohol) conglomerate Diageo was willing to pay.


Good. BPL < EPL.

I have never heard anyone in this country call it the EPL.

Champions League final tonight. Barcelona are favourites but I feel Juventus might just steal the win.

DaMarcus Beasley coming out of retirement to play in the Gold Cup

From those 35, the 23 who'd make my cut would be:

GK: Brad Guzan, Nick Rimando (Klinsmann said that this Gold Cup was about winning, not development, so Rimando gets the nod over Bill Hamid), William Yarbrough
DEF: DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, John Brooks, Timmy Chandler, Omar Gonzalez, Brek Shea, DeAndre Yedlin
MID: Kyle Beckerman, Alejandro Bedoya, Michael Bradley, Mix Diskerud, Fabian Johnson, Alfredo Morales (he adds depth to center defense as well as the midfield, which is a better role than any other fringe player could fill), Gyasi Zardes, Graham Zusi
FWD: Juan Agudelo, Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey, Aron Johannsson, Jordan Morris
And from those 23, here's my starting XI:

Basically a 4-4-1-1 but more likely a 4-4-2 Diamond

Is Tim Howard not playing any more international games?

He took a year off. He'll rejoin the team for competitions after the Gold Cup.

He won't have the same confidence for the MNT when he rejoins as he did for the World Cup. I'd expect Guzan to step up to the #1 in that time.
