Leicester City & Liverpool Season Previews, MLS Year One, Fiorentina, Copa Libertadores

Drogba selfie.
Hey, now. Thursday it is. Things are a wee bit quiet. The Major League Soccer All-Stars dispatched Spurs last night to the tune of 2 - 1. Kaká provided a lot of what was good and nice about the All-Stars' performance. And Big Daddy Harry Kane had a nice goal for Tottenham. Bird was out in Commerce City, Colorado, and filed this report. Doug McIntyre has Three Quick Thoughts. Grant Wahl has Three Thoughts.

Speaking of Grant Wahl, he's done a load of work to get this Birth of a League piece together. It's pretty damn interesting, too. For example: "They had another proposal to make throw-ins kick-ins."

Back across the pond, they're gearing up for the Premier League season. We've got the latest round of alphabetically arranged previews and predictions. As such, today it'll be Leicester City (19th) and Liverpool (5th).

Right. It looks like Di Maria is off to PSG. What went wrong for him at Old Trafford?

Tim Vickery is in South America keeping tabs on Copa Libertadores where the Tigres-River Plate tie remains tense after a first-leg draw. James Horncastle is in Italy and is wondering if Paulo Sousa and Giuseppe Rossi can continue Fiorentina's purple patch.

Oh, look. A Diego Costa book. Sweet.

And finally...your Premier League team's season in a sentence.
