How fast is Seattle's (and soon Tottenham's) DeAndre Yedlin? This is incredible (via @Unsilent)
Bruce Arena vs. Don Garber, who ya got? Commish levies fine, Arena turns to attorney #mls

Biggest news to me in this piece: Only 1 in 15 or 20 hotel guests tips the person who cleans their room…
Told Garber I was bummed out about fining Arena because his rants are highly entertaining. Then again, doubt this will stop Arena in future.
"Major fine" coming to LA's Bruce Arena for criticizing MLS over Kljestan deal, commissioner Don Garber tells SI…
Terracotta Suarez-biting-Chiellini statues, from the streets of Naples, care of @mattrodbard. Amazing.

Blatter & fellow Fifa bosses will now be forced to hand $25k watches back after The Sunday Times uncovered secret gift they got in Brazil
Retweeted by Grant Wahl
BUT times are a-changing. Three cheers for the principled exec committee members from Jordan, Aus & US who handed watch back & reported it
Retweeted by Grant Wahl
@Trodonaspike @owen_g D'Hooghe of Belgium said he gave his to a relative because "I can't wear 25 watches"

So, how did Fifa respond when we confronted them over $25k watches pocketed by their execs against the rules?

For AM readers, Abby Wambach's lead anecdote about Sepp Blatter is a doozy in my story on sexism & FIFA…
Welcome back, Premier League. (And welcome back, @kylemartino.)
Terrific game for neutrals tonight in Seattle 3, Salt Lake 2. Anyone back for Arsenal-Man City in 6.5 hours?
Often wonder if they should add a degree-of-difficulty multiplier for MLS West games, points-wise, given how much higher-level they are.
Aside from Alan Gordon (eternal), Joao Plata might be my favorite player in Major League Soccer.
Starting to wonder if my pick of New England to win MLS Cup was ... Revolutionary.
Oba Martins and Clint Dempsey like an upgrade of the old Chicago Damani Ralph-Ante Razov combo (and a lot more expensive).
Lamar Neagle, fantastic, sir. Holding off going to bed.
Idea for a short story: Solid-but-down-at-heels US soccer broadcaster adopts British accent, turns a lot more popular with TV execs.
Watching JP Della Camera & @OriginalWinger on the call of SEA-RSL is a pleasure. Two of the best, US-made.
Almost done with season 2 of The Killing. Can't escape that Det. Holder is @jeffpearlman (in a good way).
SI's @BrianStraus with the scoop: Chivas USA may sit out 2015, MLS may go with 20 teams next year…
On vacation for the next week. Limited tweets.
If you don't want to watch the NFL right now, there's Seattle-Salt Lake MLS at 10:30 pm ET & Arsenal-Man City at 7:30 am, both NBCSN.
The @Arsenal men & @ArsenalLadies 1st teams took a combined squad photo. It's the only cool sports thing of the week.

The lead anecdote from Abby Wambach on Sepp Blatter in this story on sexism in FIFA will blow your mind…
Context on WWC turf war: Sexism still a big part of FIFA. Let @AbbyWambach @JulieFoudy @AlexandraWrage tell you…
Absolutely majestic. RT @PhilHecken: The new 1860 Munich Oktoberfest Shirt, inspired by traditional Bavarian dress:

Maybe Van Gaal can experiment with a 2-man back line now that Phil Jones is out for a month?
Good story on Spurs-bound Seattleite DeAndre Yedlin… (via @nrarmour)
Trying to imagine Ben Olsen huddling with referee Mark Geiger next to a video monitor after challenging the Espíndola red card on Wednesday.

Retweeted by Grant Wahl Don Garber signs new 5-year deal, will be MLS commissioner thru end of 2018. Now cancer-free.…
Spent some time talking to the @BeyondthePitch guys about a number of topics…

Brek Shea retains the honor of best Sky car-window interview on transfer-deadline day by an American.
Brek Shea joins Birmingham City on 3-month "emergency loan." Hoping he's dropped off by an ambulance with sirens blaring.
Pleased to see that Arsenal-Man City brings the Premier League back with a bang on Saturday.
