American Samoa For The Win

It's amazing what a change in coaches can do. Just three weeks after Thomas Rongen (yeah, the same guy who coached the Mutiny, Revolution and Chivas in MLS and the US U20s) took over for American Samoa, they notched their first win... ever.

And to follow up that 'miracle', they drew Cook Island 1-1 after they scored an own goal in a game which they dominated for extended periods of time.

The result leaves American Samoa with the surprisingly enviable position in which if they draw or defeat Samoa (yeah, I know that's confusing), then they move to the next round of qualifying for the 2014 WC in Brazil. This is the same team that has lost all 12 of its previous WC qualifiers and who lost 8-0 to Vanuatu not 2 months ago, just prior to Rongen taking the helm.

The matchup between Rongen's American Samoa and Samoa takes place in less than 24hrs, and promises to be one for the recordbook.

EPL: Aston Villa v Tottenham Highlights

Adebayor 2, Aston Villa 0. And it wasn't like Spurs weren't trying. Actually, Ade should have had at least 5 in this game, it was just that lopsided.

By the way, for those of you scoring at home, this puts Spurs in a tie with Newcastle in 3rd, with a game in hand as well...

EPL: Chelsea v Liverpool Highlights

So what does 58% possession and nearly double the shots get you in the EPL? If you are Chelsea, that would be a 2-1 loss to Liverpool. Seriously. How long will it be before The Special One Redux gets the ax?
