Manchester City Stronger, Manchester United Weaker, Southampton Falling Apart, Liverpool Has An Official Donut, Seedorf in at Milan, U.S. Hotlist

Apologies for the quiet. We had some issues here at SSN Headquarters that have been resolved. With violence.

Anyway, what's going on? Manchester City had little trouble with Blackburn in their FA Cup replay as Sergio Agüero returned to action with aplomb. Paul Wilson takes a look at the power in the City side as they attempt to win The Quadruple.

Watch out, because he's back, and he's scoring...
Meanwhile, across town at Old Trafford, more woe as Wayne Rooney looks to be out for a while longer with his groin issue. It turns out his "hot weather" holiday was in Egypt. We figured it was Dubai. Wrong again.

Southampton is going crazy all of a sudden. Their chairman has quit, their manager might leave, and suddenly this impressive, young, attacking squad could be completely unraveled. Dominic Fifield investigates.

Watch out! We're bouncing straight to The Mill and your Plus One.

Nemanja Matic is back at Chelsea. Because Chelsea can do things like that.

Remember Maurice Edu? We'd forgotten he was employed by Stoke City. Philadelphia want to give him some freedom (oh!) and bring him back Stateside. MLS isn't totally on board. Sticking Stateside, let's check out the U.S. Hotlist. Gooch has left QPR for (hopefully) pastures greener at Sheffield Wednesday.

Clarence Seedorf is the new manager of Milan. He's only 37! What did he accomplish in his 22 years of playing soccer? Only this: 400 appearances for Milan. Two Serie A and two Champions League titles. He was the first player to win the Champions League with three different clubs: Ajax in 1995, Real Madrid in 1998, and Milan, in 2003 and 2007. Now that's what we call a CV. Gabriel Marcotti has more.

Anderson. So much potential. Anderson. Such bad hair. Anderson. Out the door.

Ian Rush looks especially pleased...
And...Liverpool have announced a partnership with Dunkin' Donuts. Dunkin' Donuts: The Official Donut of Liverpool Football Club. You can't make this shit up.
