It’s not classy to have genuine, red-faced, vein-throbbing rows about football, which is why we’re usually happy to roll about in drenched-in-rain ‘baller frustration for hours to come.

But the combination of wet millionaires and clinging-on- for-dear-life kits? Mercy, this may take us days.

Were you over-awed or bored Wednesday’s various domestic action, Kickettes? Your thoughts on the Capital One Cup, if you will?

Jan Gunnar Solli: Play That Funky Music

New York Red Bulls player, Jan Gunnar Solli, has a flair for the turn tables, DJ-ing at night clubs in his spare time. Offering the Wall Street Journal a peek at his party playlist, here’s what he says gets the people going:

  1. “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + The Machine (Calvin Harris remix): “A super crowd pleaser,” said Mr. Solli.
  2. “Lies” by Burns (Otto Knows Remix): “There’s a lot of energy in this track, especially the cool synths.”
  3. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia: “Beautiful sing-along vocals over a fantastic drop. It’ll give you that goosebump feeling.”
  4. “Steel Eyes” by Benji (feat. Sherry St. Germain): “Listen to the sick break and how the guitar and Sherry’s voice just get under your skin.”

Players and their “passion projects”. You dig, Kickettes?

Big win in front of a big crowd for the Sounders this weekend – did you catch their 3-nil result over neighbouring rivals, Portland Timbers?

Sadly, the victory was marred by Fredy Montero‘s bizarre modified ponytail/mullet situ. Let’s give him a week or so and hope his hair choices improve.

There may be a better way to promote interest in Australia’s A-League, but we can’t think of it.

Kickettes, feast your pupils on D.C. United’s Chris Pontius wearing an apron whilst volunteering to feed the homeless. Charity work does his foxy boy next door good looks well, huh?

Chris recently signed a brand new contract that will keep him in the capital city of America for years to come. Plus he was the MLS All-Star MVP after scoring against Chelsea earlier this year and his 11 goals are a career high.

As if you need other reasons to love him.
