I never fell in love with Mourinho, I was always just amazed buy his abilities as a manager. But for Graham MacAree who has been a Chelsea fan for a very long time it has to hurt to see someone you still have feelings for being such an asshole.  

FC Dallas' historic Win A Signal Of A Changing Tide?-SB Nation Soccer

Is a a changing of the tide? Not yet, but it's a good start. The Mexican league is still far ahead of MLS but perhaps not for much longer.

Give Us Your Questions - Tottenham Edition-The Busby Babe

Now we don't want you guys to troll. We never want trolls, but if you guys wanted to send an obsessively polite email over the the guys at The Busby Babe asking how they could possibly expect to beat Spurs, that would be kind of cool.
