  • Chris Wondolowski is your 2012 MLS MVP. Good for him. It's the right call. There's nothing more to say. Instead, let's watch highlights of his record-tying 27th goal of the year:

  • Bruce Arena has a choice to make: Play ASN fave Tommy Meyer, the man who saved the LA Galaxy's season, or return to A.J. DeLaGarza, who is healthy. Best guess: He goes with DeLaGarza's experience.

  • The United States women's national team defeated Ireland 5-0 at JELD-WEN Field in Portland, Oregon. Alex Morgan, who's becoming unstoppable, had a first-half hat trick, while Sydney Leroux bagged a pair after the break. The teams will play again on Saturday in Phoenix.

  • Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is accusing Clint Dempsey of diving. Which, as someone who writes a Liverpool fan blog(!) notes, is ironic considering he continues to trot out Luis "I tripped over the grass" Suarez. Elsewhere, the Mail has Dempsey saying he felt undervalued and under-appreciated at Fulham, which may or may not be true given the source of the "quotes." Anyhow, good times in London.

  • American Andrew Wooten netted two goals in Sandhausen’s 3-1 win over Energie Cottbus. One came on a penalty kick and the second came when he tapped in a rebound of his own saved penalty. Excitement!

  • ESPN's Doug McIntyre talks to Aron Johannsson, who continues to tear up the Danish Superliga with AGF Aarhus. The upshot? Well, just go read it yourself.
