The fact that Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure may leave the club at the end of the season is not a surprise.

MLS clubs ready to snatch up Yaya Toure
The agent of the Ivory Coast midfielder had stated that his client may leave the club at the end of the campaign after the Citizens announced the arrival of former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.

Toure has certainly been a shadow of himself this season with the midfielder often looking disinterested in certain games.

The fact that things are going wrong is certainly there to see when the former African footballer of the year was out muscled by young and hungry Tottenham players in the latest home defeat that City suffered at the hands of the north London club.

It seems that the loss of the Premier league would be a gain to the MLS. Players from big European clubs often see the MLS as a place where they can play in the twilight of their career. Orlando City and New York Red Bulls are two teams who are very much interested in bringing the former Barcelona player to the MLS.

With Toure certainly looking a shadow of himself in this season, a move to the MLS may just be the right move for the Ivory Coast midfielder.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is enjoying the celebrity status in America following his move to MLS side LA Galaxy this summer.

Steven Gerrard with his family
The 35-year-old who ended a 17 years stint at Merseyside expressed his relief at walking down streets 'without being stopped every five minutes'.

“I couldn’t be happier right now. I’ve gone from not being able to walk down a street without being stopped every five minutes to being a Z-lister out here and that’s cool. I love it," he told Hello! magazine.

The former Liverpool and England captain reminisced about his humble upbringing in Whiston, Merseyside and admitted that it would always make him stay grounded and modest.

"We’re very lucky, I know that. I grew up on a council estate and will always remain grounded and humble. But this is mind-blowing.”

Gerrard, his wife Alex and their three daughters are renting a whopping $18m (£12m), six-bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills that once housed singer Mariah Carey – during his 18-month contract with LA Galaxy.

“I’ve become a cool dad all of a sudden because I can take the kids out and no-one interferes,” he added.

“We can take them to the park, the beach, fairgrounds, water parks and be there for six hours and I might hear one person say my name and they’re not even sure if it’s me, so I just smile. The kids have been shocked I’m around and can do more things with them.”

Gerrard also confessed that he looks forward to spending Christmas with family and friends in Liverpool without being involved in the hectic Premier League schedule.

He said: “We’re going to have a house party in Liverpool and it’ll be nice to have a couple of beers like everyone else can.

“Then we’ll go away for New Year, which we’ve never been able to do before. We’ll always have Christmas in England because we love being cosy at home with the kids and all the presents and have family time.”

The Liverpool legend won two FA Cups and a UEFA Champions League among others during his time in the North East of England.

David Beckham has always been loved by the football fans and he gave us one more reason to continue doing so.

David Beckham surprises a family with $100,000
David Beckham surprised a working class family with seven new iPhones that each had a prepaid 10 year plan as part of US TV show ‘Knock Knock Live’.

Adding to it, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star presented the family with a whopping $100,000 cheque which is set to change their lives.

The Gonzalez family got too emotional and there were lots of tears shed before David Beckham played football, or “soccer” with the kids in the garden.

Before 'The Bloody Big Deal' and prior to what may still prove to be its second version with the signings of Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore, a group that can be said to be the most devoted of supporter groups in the history of Major League Soccer were preparing to follow their beloved Toronto FC into the unknown. A small but very devoted group of just under 100 members (which to be honest feels more like 2000 during matches), the Inebriatti were formed amid what seems to be a sort of divide between the previously prominent TFC groups such as the Red Patch Boys, U-Sector, etc.

No Pyro, No Party - A Night With The Inebriatti
While RPB (Red Patch Boys), the biggest Toronto FC group are considered (to quote a recent article in the Toronto Star) a family-friendly bunch, The Inebriatti don't think of themselves as 'entertainment for the masses'. They don't wake up on game-day mornings with the thought of turning BMO Field into a spectacle for soccer moms, but rather create an atmosphere in which the visitors could feel a real discomfort of being away from home and provide The Reds with the opposite, a home venue in which they feel supported every step of the way.

FootyFair spent a night with the loud group at An Sibín Pub, an Irish establishment in the eastern part of the city to watch the club's away season opener against the Vancouver Whitecaps. "An Sibín" which in Irish means something to the tune of "an illegal, illicit drinking establishment and/or shady bar" is not Inebriatti's home because of the appealing meaning of its name, but rather because one of the establishment's owners Scott is himself a member of the group. The night itself, as we mentioned on our twitter machine the following morning, was "explosive".

The group has adopted the motto "No Pyro, No Party", a concept that speaks for itself. Similar to most well-established groups in places such as Greece, Poland, Russia and Italy among others, The Inebriatti don't usually show up without a pyrotechnic display in mind; finding every opportunity to turn their party into what may seem as the deepest parts of hell for the observer not familiar with the culture.

That night at An Sibín was very telling of the group. Even after Toronto went 1-0 down early in the match, the chanting in the (what FootyFair's Iain Jones described as) 'Packed to the rafters for TFC' venue went silent if only for a few seconds before the songs could again be heard outside of the pub.

The Inebriatti
When The Reds tied the match and eventually took the lead the night turned into what is usually only seen inside the stadium, and even then, rarely in North America. With arms around each others' shoulders the group jumped side to side, all to the rhythm of the chants, and when TFC put the nail in Vancouver's coffin with their third goal with little time left on the clock, members of the group spent little time throwing the shirts off their backs to the tables, basking in the glory of an away victory for their beloved club.

What's different about this group compared to the many others in Toronto and across the league in general, is that these guys don't give a second thought to where they can and where they cannot support their club. You don't see members looking around to see if anyone's staring at them, wondering whether it's OK to sing. The Inebriatti don't care about perception, they care about their city and Toronto FC. For members of this group participation isn't suggested it's expected, and if losing your voice on a weekly basis (whether the team plays at home or away) is not your cup of tea, you would most likely not associate yourself with this passionate bunch.

But if you think the night ended there, you'd be very wrong. "No Pyro, No Party" is not a slogan; it's a way of life for members of The Inebriatti. This group is not a fan-club, they are a fanatical edge of support in the city of Toronto, one that the entire league will likely be very familiar with over time. Spilling onto the streets there was just one more way in which the enjoyment of a win could conclude; a fire show. With their flares in their hands and the 'Inebriatti' banner in front of them, the ultras of Toronto made sure that if you previously didn't know what was going on, you would at least want to find out. Marking their club's victory in the only fashion they know how!

Raúl in New York to finalise his move to NY Cosmos
Former star and idol of Real Madrid Raúl González Blanco, 37, is set to move to the New York Cosmos.

At 37, Raul Gonzalez should continue his career in the New York Cosmos, after finishing his contract in July with Al Sadd.

New York Cosmos and Raúl González Blanco are in contact again after a gap of three months, with negotiations going on although nothing has been finalized.

Raúl watched New York Cosmos play a NASL (2nd tier of US soccer) match against Indy Eleven which ended 0-0. The ex-Real Madrid striker watched the game from the VIP area with various Cosmos officials.

Cosmos are hoping to sign Raúl in the January window as the transfer window for new signings for the American soccer leagues closed on October 6th

Raul is keen to keep playing but is also attracted to the possibility of coaching and he sees the United States as a perfect starting point due to the ongoing development and progression that football is experiencing in the US.
