Scotland continues their perfect record in Euro qualifiers thanks in part to Reign FC's Kim Little and Rachel Corsie.

Local boy Kelyn Rowe is good at that soccer game, don't ya know, with perfect positioning and a strong, far-post header to score for the New England Revolution over the weekend.

Gyasi Zardes has revealed his "secret" to his "perfect" first touch. NO YOU FOOL, NOW EVERYONE WILL TAKE YOUR SECRETS.

EPL

The EPL season is coming to a close, and Leicester City is still in firm control of the league title. Not giving up a goal in several games helps fend off strong opposition like Tottenham in their quest for their first-ever top-flight title.

If Leicester does become an all-time Cinderella story, the pressure will be on to decide whether to keep the roster as stable as possible, or to spend some of the new-found dough to upgrade at key positions.

Tottenham Hotspur did keep pace with a 3-0 win over Manchester United, who were surely not in a strong competitive mindset after their bus was delayed by traffic. The match itself was postponed to accommodate.

On the other end of the table, the once-proud Aston Villa is staring into the abyss with one foot over the edge. Fans have begun to play their dirge.

Supporters of Nottingham Forest are looking to create a Supporter's Trust, and are looking to how other EPL clubs handle their own such organizations as an inspiration.
