“What does a soccer captain do?” you typed into the search engine named Google. Here’s your answer in the form of 23-year-old Newcastle United center back Jamaal Lascelles. The Englishman skippered Newcastle’s return to the Premier League, and now he’s earned the Magpies a vital victory over Swansea City with a heartfelt block and buccaneering header.
Sadio Mane earned straight red Saturday after going studs up against Manchester City keeper Ederson. It was a tough call for the refs to decide whether Mane deserved red, or perhaps a deeper shade of red than usual.

The EPL transfer deadline will be moved up next season to before the start of the season, in an attempt to curb the silliness of players angling for moves while playing actual soccer games against teams they might be sold to.
Those of you who revel in the insanity of the transfer deadline need not fret, though. Next summer's transfer window will still be dumb as hell.
Manchester City and Liverpool have scored their fair shares of incredible goals against each other, but there's one moment in their storied history that stands out. It's from Liverpool's 4-1 win over City in 2015.
Martin Skrtel's thunderous goal from a corner kick put a lid on the game, and Joe Hart (or someone who sounds EXACTLY like him), standing too close to a microphone, said the f-word really loud. The broadcast picked it up. It was beautiful.
Alexis Sanchez is fat and content because he’s got a hot new GF and that’s why Arsenal and Chile can’t win. At least, that’s what tens of thousands of fans are saying ahead of a planned march in Santiago to break up Alexis and his girlfriend Mayte Rodriguez.
Hola Amigos from far and wide. The International break is over! And best of all the transfer window is closed! Coutinho is still a red. Alexis is still a gunner, and Arsenal fans are still probably pissed they didn’t land Thomas Lemar. Speaking of Arsenal fans – let’s roll into our three players you need to transfer for this week!
#1. Alexandre Lacazette:
Dejan Lovren is like a haunted doll. No matter how hard you try to get rid of him, he always finds a way to stay put. During Liverpool's last two summers, a main goal has been to replace Lovren in the starting lineup. Lovren is still in the starting lineup. Next summer they will try to replace him again, but will fail somehow. Dejan Lovren will keep his job.
As more and more money is spent on football, stadiums become more and more complex. Tottenham Hotspurs' new venue will be the latest in a long line of transforming soccer stadiums, as the club showed off in a video on Thursday.
Tottenham wants its new stadium to be the go-to venue for NFL games played in London. The designers of the stadium have come up with a way to maintain a Premier League-quality grass surface while still supporting American football games.
