If you're the LA Galaxy - presumably still a MLS Cup-caliber team with a revolving door at the goalkeeper position - what do you do to fix the problem? The Los Angeles Times reports the Galaxy's solution is trading for Dan Kennedy, the former Chivas USA all-star who missed time with FC Dallas last season with back injuries.

The Chicago Fire have parted ways with their Academy director, who will take an Academy job with the Portland Timbers.

A 24 year-old Vancouver Whitecaps prospect has been charged with sexual assault.

If it were a proper match, Sacramento Republic would be up 3-0 in MLS Expansion Cup 20XX.

Drew Moor is the latest Colorado player to part the Rapids and across the Burgundy Sea, now with Toronto FC.

With only ten minutes remaining in regulation, it looked like Club America's 1-0 lead might send them on from Osaka to face FC Barcelona. But two late scores from China's Guangzhou Evergreen, including one in the final seconds of stoppage time, knocked Seattle's first 2016 competition out of the Club World Cup.

While America was busy blowing a lead, Mexico's Liga MX Apertura ended in penalties. Tigres (and their laser pointers) took home the first-half championship. It was a relief for the club who came a match away from taking a much bigger prize this season.

Leicester City's Jamie Vardy has been on an incredible run of form, leading his club to the top of the EPL standings with a record-setting scoring performance. Now, the man who has put Leicester back on the map is being honored in the saltiest way possible: With branded potato chips.

The broadcast companies might be next to fall in the plane crash that currently is FIFA.
