Eto'o taking a bite out of the Big Apple?

Barcelona forward Samuel Eto'o recently visited New York during his vacation from Spanish La Liga side Barcelona FC to do some shopping, visit Niketown, and take in the Broadway show Avenue Q. So far, there have been no denials of the rumor that he also secretly signed a pre-contract with MLS Side New York Red Bulls, in anticipation of the opening of their new purpose built stadium in nearby Harrison, New Jersey.

This seems to be a sensible approach for the MLS club, currently propping up the table in the league's Eastern Conference. Colombian super scoring sensation Juan Pablo Angel has lost his running mate, Jozy Altidore to Spanish club Villareal and has threatened to quit MLS if manager Juan Carlos Osorio doesn't take steps to improve the squad.

Watch this space!

Is this any way related to a possible KC swoop for Steven Gerrard? I heard his 2nd cousin's new wife was originally born in Topeka, which is only a couple hours from Kansas City

When my Metro train was suddenly taken out of service for no apparent reason, I overheard someone at Pentagon City say Michael Owen was coming to FC Dallas. Dunno about the relative situation.

There is no truth to that rumor. Everyone knows that Gerrard couldn't find his way out of Liverpool without the official LFC team bus. Regardless of the origins of his latest bint, he will be remaining with the scouse outfit until they ask him to leave.

009- I was mistaken it was actually Kaka who has cousins in Topeka
