Eto’o linked with MLS; Stoke still want Agudelo


Samuel Eto’o joined Chelsea in the summer initially on a season-long contract. According to Wednesday’s newspapers Eto’o fancies testing himself in America’s Major League Soccer. The league is improving season on season and is increasingly becoming the place for a football swansong.

Stoke are looking to launch a second attempt to land American international Juan Agudelo. Their first bid was thwarted after the New England Revolution striker failed a work permit application. However, Stoke look set to renew interest in January.

Soccer stars get into the Halloween mood

Halloween is just a couple days away, and if you haven’t figured out a costume yet, well, you’re in luck.

Several soccer stars have already revealed what they’re being for the spookiest day of the year, and perhaps they can serve as inspiration for you.

Want to scare your friends silly? Just take a look at New England Revolution striker Juan Agudelo’s creepy outfit. As you can see by Charlie Davies’ reaction, this will do the trick (no pun intended):

Looking for something more pop culture related? Leave it to USA stars Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux — who else? — to show you what’s hot in the streets right now:

Hilarious choice, but that twerk still looks like it could use some work, Alex. I mean Miley.

Of course, you can always go the vintage Halloween route. Check out Robin van Persie as Count Dracula! Too bad RVP didn’t strip on a Luis Suarez jersey along with it, that would have been truly epic.


Juan Agudelo returns to Revs lineup with dazzling goal

Stoke City fans, help is on the way.

The bad news? It will not arrive until January.

Juan Agudelo, who recently agreed to a winter transfer deal with the Premier League club, returned to the New England Revolution lineup in style after a two-month layoff by nudging a one-touch backheel flick from Chris Tierney’s looping pass over on-coming Chicago Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson and defender Bakary Soumare.

The goal serves as another example why many European clubs have knocked on the 20-year-old’s doorstep for years. More importantly, Agudelo’s goal snapped the New England’s scoreless streak of 261 minutes.

And you thought Stoke City had problems scoring. Yikes! Then again, it’s Stoke for goodness sakes:

Take a bow, Juan. We expect more of this during your winter stint across the pond.
