  • Louis van Gaal thinks someone broke Manchester United (and it wasn't Alex Ferguson)

    Though Louis van Gaal has started his reign at Manchester United by notching two wins in as many preseason matches, he is far from satisfied with the state of his team. He said Man United's 3-2 win over Roma was "not a good performance" and now he's expressed his belief that it would have been easier to follow Sir Alex Ferguson than David Moyes because someone (or someones) broke the team.

    From the Telegraph:

    So who broke Man United? Well, no one wants to point any fingers, but their names might rhyme with "Shmavid Shnoyes" and "Bed Boodbard."

    In related news, David Moyes immediately burned his newspaper after reading these quotes.

  • Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson have a Subway sandwich making competition

    Liverpool's trip to the U.S. isn't all preseason friendlies and training in sweltering heat — there's also the official club sponsor hosted sandwich making competitions. Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson stopped by a Subway shop in Boston, put on the shirt and plastic gloves of a sandwich artist and assembled their own culinary creations.

    With former Red Sox pitcher Jim Corsi served as the judge/taste tester, Henderson and Sturridge created sandwiches that perfectly encapsulated their respective personalities. Henderson created a simple, chicken based sub that he himself enjoys. Sturridge, meanwhile, got creative with it, combining steak with meatballs, tomatoes and cucumbers.

    You'll have to watch the video to see who wins, but Corsi does describe Sturridge's effort as "a weird combination."
