Scunthorpe Defeat Bradford City Thanks To The Greatest Block You’ll Ever See

A goal-saving block is a great thing. To make that block while lying on the ground and perfectly timing an overhead kick to put a goal-bound header out of play is sensational. To do all that in stoppage time while your side is leading 3-2 and pushing for promotion to the English Championship, well, that’s just absurd. 

But that’s exactly what Scunthorpe defender Murray Wallace managed to achieve for his side against Bradford City today, earning them a vital three points in their push for promotion.

Romelu Lukaku Exit Paves Way For Inevitable World-Record Transfer Fee

Last summer, Manchester United broke the world-record transfer fee by signing Paul Pogba for £89.3 million. During that same window, Chelsea had a £70 million bid to resign Everton’s Romelu Lukaku turned down. With Lukaku confirming that he’s unwilling to sign an extension on an Everton contract that still has two years left to run, Lukaku will almost inevitably become the world’s most expensive transfer this summer.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Leaves Manchester United For Chicago Fire And MLS

The Chicago Fire have signed 32-year-old German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger from Manchester United, handing him one of the top 10 biggest contracts in the league. Schweinsteiger could make his Chicago debut as early as April 1 against Montreal.

According to FOX Soccer, the transfer fee is around $4.5 million. Schweinsteiger joined Manchester United from Bayern Munich back in July of 2015 for almost $10 million, but he struggled to make an impact at the club under Louis van Gaal. 

Out Of The Frying Pan

Per the Chicago Tribune, Bastian Schweinsteiger is on the move to the Chicago Fire, and could join the team as early as the middle of next week.

Let me get on the record saying this is going to go terribly. The Fire are awful, and don't have the athleticism in midfield to compensate for how creaky Schweinsteiger has become. It'll be like the first year of the Andrea Pirlo NYCFC experiment, only worse.

What Should Manchester United Do With Wayne Rooney?

Who would’ve thought we’d ever get here?

Some people have speculated that Manchester UNited are ready to offer Rooney compensation to buy out the rest of his £250,000-a-week contract and see him off.

Rooney's deal with United until the deal expires in 2019.

While it is tough to believe they’d let Rooney go for free after such a long and fruitful career with the club; if we were only to analyze his performance this season, the move makes perfect sense.

The Remarkable Yin And Yang Of Wayne Rooney And Jermain Defoe's International Careers
