White to Qatar? (and other news of the day)

Jeremiah White headed to Qatar? Greg Seltzer says so. Like him, I’m waiting to hear back from White to confirm that. If so, that would be a blow to Philadelphia Union, who talked with the American free agent winger last week.  We’ll keep you posted.

Veron: No. 1 in South America.

U.S. Soccer Federation refuses to sanction USL-1 or NASL and orders them back to the drawing board for another week. Interesting analysis from Andrea Canales. Not sure she’s right, but she’s worth reading.

Juan Sebastian Veron named South American Player of the Year. Nice award for a classy player.

The New York Times looks at financial problems caused by government-funded stadiums. Union Field at Chester, with $77 million in government support, may be among the last to see such generous government funding. (The story ran on Christmas, but it’s still relevant.)

Portsmouth seeking new owners – again.

Luca Toni moves to Roma on loan. Now maybe he’ll shut up and play.

Tottenham’s Roman Pavyluchenko with ESPN’s joke of the day: “Do you want to hear a joke in London? It goes:  Harry Redknapp put Roman Pavlyuchenko into the starting line-up.”

Happy New Year, everyone.
