Two-year Twitter anniversary (Saturday links)

This site tells me I’ve been on Twitter for two years today, meaning two years ago I lost my freedom…

I kid, let’s celebrate with links:

— Good day in the EPL for Americans/MLSers: Thierry Henry scored a late winner for Arsenal, Landon Donovan had an assist in Everton’s win over Chelsea, Tim Howard got the shutout, Clint Dempsey fired a wicked shot that resulted in an own goal off the back of the keeper to lead Fulham to victory and Tim Ream/George John made travel squads for Bolton and West Ham, respectively.

— Upcoming CCL opponent Santos Laguna lost 3-1 last night to Morelia.

— Here’s some info on the Sounders’ third-annual kickoff luncheon. Limited seats are available. You get to watch practice and hang out with players, coaches, etc.

— The news became official Friday. The academy season has been extended to 10 months and academy players won’t be allowed to play high-school soccer anymore.

— Here’s a report that says Tottenham will play the Red Bulls in a summer friendly. With the Spurs success (they’re up 5-0 on Newcastle as I type this) and the Harry Redknapp connection, what would you think about Tottenham being the Sounders summer friendly opponent?

Goal.com talks to executives at Portland and Sporting KC for their open use of Twitter.

— Montreal played its No. 1 pick Andrew Wenger at forward the other day. It’s not a shock, but he can also play as a midfielder or defender.
