The MLS SuperDraft is today (Thu., Jan. 17, 11am, live on ESPN2), with Lake Travis high schooler Kekuta Manneh (pictured) projected to go early – perhaps as the first forward picked. If you followed the Austin Aztex last season, you can say you knew him when. Manneh, who just turned 18, came here from Gambia in 2010 as part of a development program set up in that country by youth soccer giant Rush Soccer.

Huge London derby game 7am Sunday morning on Fox Soccer: Arsenal at Chelsea, with both teams' seasons on the line. That's followed by Tottenham-Man U at 9:30am.

Enjoy Fox Soccer Channel while you can; the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that News Corp. is moving to turn it into a general entertainment network, modeled after their popular FX channel. Fox will lose the English Premier League after this season, but still has the rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, the UEFA Champions League, and CONCACAF events, and it would likely move those to its planned Fox Sports 1, which will likely replace the Speed channel later this year.
