You know you've made it in New York when they name a sandwich after you, and that's the very honour that one Manhattan deli has bestowed on New York City superstar signing Andrea Pirlo.

Let's call it the "Pirlo Problem." Not because the elegant Italian midfield maestro is a "problem" per se. But rather because he perfectly illustrates a brain-teaser that MLS coaches are increasingly dealing with.

We love to see these splashy names coming into MLS. Yes, the narrative of MLS as a retirement home is annoying and possibly problematic.

It's hardly the best kept secret in the footballing sphere, but it would appear that Andrea Pirlo's imminent move from Juventus to New York City FC is still only 99.99999% done.

The MLS side chucked Pirlo's official player profile up on their club website this morning, which immediately set tongues a-wagging that the transfer had officially gone through.

United showed us a 45 minute glimpse of the soccer that has carried them to the top of the table before reverting to their recent, problematic form.

For the first 45 minutes against New York City FC, D.C. United was back on course. Rather than hanging on for dear life, or digging themselves a gigantic hole in the first 21 minutes, or digging themselves a similarly-sized hole in just 4 minutes, United played steady, sturdy soccer at Yankee Stadium.

"Last year I signed a new contract and I want to stay a long time at Chelsea"

One player who has constantly been linked with a move from Chelsea this summer is Oscar and regular readers of my website would know that I had thought it could have been possible. I was wrong as Oscar has re-iterated his desire to stay with Chelsea for a long time.

I had stated that Oscar could leave the club based on the fact that it always seemed to be him that was substituted in games or if there was a change to the line up, it was Oscar that was dropped to the bench.

This is the report that most of us have seen of late and I wonder just how much substance this really has? It's not the first time that Oscar has been linked with a move from Chelsea but for Isco? I seriously doubt that Real Madrid would be looking to sell.

The bloody Oscar rumour just does not seem to want to go away.
