Newcastle have reportedly ended their interest in Wigan's Arouna Kone after a bizarre U-turn. Latics sources claim the Magpies are no longer in the race for the striker, according to Tyneside newspaper The Chronicle. The reason being circulated for the change of heart is that the 29-year-old Ivory Coast forward doesn't fit the club's "blueprint" [.
I've been fighting with this off and on (mostly off) for a few months now. It's not getting any different. So, I present to you, the place of birth of all 198 players who've featured for Liverpool since the beginning of the Premier League (the 1992-93 season).

Editor's note: Chromecast is a new technology from Google that allows you to plug it into a HDMI port on your television, and then you can literally "fling" programs from your mobile, tablet or laptop device to your TV screen, so you can watch it on your TV instead of the device that's sitting on or next to your lap.
With recent speculation that Google will be coming in hard for Major League Soccer's TV rights when they become available after the 2014 season, we take stock of the playing field as negotiations between the league and its various TV partners are set to begin.
I'm a few days late on this, but I think this news still merits some discussion.
Journalist John Ourand, who writes for sports media industry publication Sports Business Daily,predicts that the upcoming rights deal for Major League Soccer will see Google come out as the winner, picking up a portion of the US media rights to MLS and USMNT games.
The current deal between ESPN and MLS, which was agreed in 2006, and expires in 2014, was packaged together with rights to home USMNT games.
We're afraid there's been a bit of bad news for any of you out there who were hoping to get your hands on an official Gareth Bale "Heart 11″ belt, walking stick, whip or saddle anytime soon with the news that Google may already own the copyright on the loathsome finger gesture.
We reported earlier this year that Gareth Bale was attempting to trademark his annoying heart gesture goal celebration. Now it emerges that it might already be patented by Google. It seems the Google Glass the search engine giant's head mounted display equivalent of a Facebook 'Like' will be to look at something and [.
Another day, another 'Gareth Bale is on his way to Real Madrid' report from Spanish newspaper Marca. This time the theory is that Cristiano Ronaldo played as a central striker during last night's friendly against Lyon as manager Carlo Ancelotti works out how to accomodate the Spurs winger into his lineup.
Arsene Wenger took part in a Google+ hangout today. The Arsenal boss was involved in a video conference with a panel of Gunners supporters from around the world.

Is the sky falling? Well, the times are changing. At least in the world of sports media. After a delicious scoop on USMNT angst, AOL fired Brian Straus. In another corner of the internet, CNN axed its relationship with Sports Illustrated and now links to Bleacher Report. Other sites have taken aim at Bleacher Report, criticizing the obvious SEO tactics and abundance of slideshows.
Get around. Most of you don't know about the short-lived but excellent soccer blog Footsmoke. Like Pinpoint me, Pirlo, the site offered keen observations, uncanny wit, and some amusing pop culture references. Like Pinpoint me, Pirlo, both sites ended too early. Posts stopped appearing. Google Readers felt empty.
Do a Google search for ‘Daniel Sturridge Bad Attitude' and you'll find over 13,000 search results. Ever since Sturridge signed with Manchester City as a reserve he somehow was labeled as having a poor attitude. In 2009 Sturridge left City...

Wenn man bei Google nach Wayne Rooney sucht, bekommt man freundlicherweise auf der rechten Seite einen Steckbrief zum Fußballer mit Informationen von Wikipedia. Für die angezeigten Bilder ist Google selbst verantwortlich, nicht gerade nett, dass als 1. ein Bild zu sehen ist, auf dem der Fußballstar dank Photoshop aussieht wie Frankenstein.
Chelsea star Juan Mata has had quite the start to the new season. Having been dropped by new manager Jose Mourinho at the start of the campaign, the Spanish midfielder has fought his way back into the starting eleven at Stamford Bridge and continued to influence his side as they look to obtain both domestic and international silverware this season.

I was lucky enough to be selected as part of the Glass Explorer program (thanks to my rock star team at Google Plus!), and after a couple days of obsessing over them, practicing using them, and showing them off all around New York City, here are five of my first impressions.
13.06.2013 -Google Glass, los anteojos futuristas de Google, se van metiendo (tibiamente) en la tecnología móvil de dominio público (hasta ahora desarrolladores y en breve al consumidor). En la incansable búsqueda de mostrar información disponible para los usuarios de smartphones sin utilizar las manos, los Google Glass se basan en Android y ya vamos viendo algunas de sus aplicaciones.
The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a song.
(It is entirely possible some of this was 'sampled'.
Join Free Beer Movement's Dan Wiersema and The Denver Post's beer writer Eric Gorski as we discuss the Colorado craft beer scene and American soccer.
Denver is often the center of the craft beer universe (home to the Great American Beer Festival, including Colorado Craft Beer Week this week) and this week will be the center of American soccer with Friday's U.
On Wednesday Commissioner Garber gave his annual pre-First Kick address to the media. Unlike prior years, the address was conducted via Google+ and in a venue at Google's New York headquarters. Journalists asked questions either from the venue or via video hookup. The questions touched on expansion to New York (going strong but timeline not indefinite), the Cosmos (they chose the lower division) and the Cascadia trademark dispute (league could have handled it better).
