Finally, Dunne Is No Longer A Manchester City Player

Out of all the trades that Manchester City have made this year, signing Tevez, Barry, Santa Cruz, Adebayor, and Toure, getting rid of Richard Dunne has been their best move yet.

Dunne is probably the top own goal scorer and red card getting player in the EPL. He is also constantly getting beat and dives in on every occasion. I hate to say it, but he is a disgrace. And he was captain of the Manchester City side. Robinho must be doing a samba dance right now he's so happy.

However, it is not a good day for Aston Villa, Brad Friedel, and perhaps Brad Guzan, will have to keep out Dunne's shots, since he's their new central defender. I'm sorry Aston Villa fans, hope Dunne helps more than he hurts, but I doubt it.

Beckham & The Galaxy: Shirt Sponsor Herbalife

How is the LA Galaxy sponsor and essentially the company who helped bring Beckham to the MLS doing? Herbalife released their earnings today:

On Monday, the company said its second-quarter net income fell 28 percent as unfavorable currency moves and higher taxes hurt earnings. The company earned $48.3 million, or 77 cents per share, down from $67.1 million, or $1.01 per share, a year earlier. Sales fell 11 percent to $571.8 million from $639.7 million.

The results met Wall Street forecasts, but the company narrowed its full-year guidance, to a range of $2.97 to $3.03 per share, while setting third-quarter guidance between 66 cents and 69 cents per share.

We've Got It Good

Residents play soccer in Cap-Haitien, Haiti, Friday, July 31, 2009. At least 369 illegal Haitian migrants were repatriated to Cap-Haitien since January alone, according to U.N. peacekeepers in Haiti. They left the country, in overloaded boats, toward north, south and east to the U.S. and Caribbean islands, while smugglers shepherd others west to the Dominican Republic and sometimes on to Puerto Rico. Others fly on commercial aircraft with plans to overstay tourist visas.
