Strengthening Palace defence was crucial to survival says Allardyce


RELEGATED Hull's manager Marco Silva says he will "analyse" what went wrong as his side look to bounce back up at the first attempt. Silva, 39, said the foundations for the club's relegation were laid in pre-season.

Acting Warriors coach almost arrested by Spurs police escort


However, just showing up to the arena proved to be more hard than Mike Brown expected last night. Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is still dealing with an ailment that has caused him to miss most of the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs, which means assistant coach Mike Brown continues to be at the helm in Kerr's absence.

Why Arsenal could play Liverpool for final Champions League spot

The result means eighth is all-but out the Saints' grasp unless they can better West Brom's results in two of the last three games. The Frenchman has never finished outside the Premier League's top four in a full season at the helm and is optimistic they can gatecrash the Champions League places this time around, despite a bad run of form which saw Arsenal lose six of 11 league games.

Arsene Wenger: No new goalkeeper for Arsenal in the summer

Arsene Wenger is in a tough spot right now. Arsene Wenger will be relying on Liverpool or Manchester City slipping up on Sunday to qualify Arsenal for the Champions League for a 20th successive season. 'The coach sees me there at the moment and the main thing for me is that I'm on the pitch and can help the team with my performances'. Even if not, should the manager have learned from that and tried it out before the trips to Chelsea and Bayern Munich, games which resulted in losses ... Lire la suite »

Kim Si-woo makes history at The Players Championship

Rory McIlroy had new clubs in his bag. SERGIO GARCIA is not only a victor in golf but also in love. Rickie Fowler, who won the year before, closed with a 79. For runner-up Poulter it was also a bounce back of sorts. The bogey on the 18th was only the second for Poulter over the final 46 of the tournament. Lire la suite »

Here's what you need to know about Wednesday's vital match this evening. His team did very little attacking wise throughout the match but will still be massive favourites to get the job done back at Hillsborough on Wednesday night.

McIlroy is scheduled to play the European Tour's flagship event in two weeks, followed by the Memorial Tournament prior to the U.S. Open.

Maria made a great comeback as she made it to the semi-finals in Stuttgart in her first tournament. And she will not feature at Roland Garros this year.

Did LaMarcus Aldridge Intentionally Step Under Kevin Durant?


When Zaza Pachulia just happened to undercut Kawhi Leonard while slowly closing in on him, placing a foot on an ankle that had previously been injured and even re-aggravated during the game, the dynamic of the series changed instantly. But Popovich wasn't buying any defense from Pachulia about lack of intent. It can't just be, 'Oh it was inadvertent. You ever hear of manslaughter? I don't think as a group they really did, which means probably a little bit of feeling sorry for themselves ... Lire la suite »

David Wagner inspired by Huddersfield's history ahead of play-off second leg


Huddersfield are aiming to reach the top-flight of English football for the first time since 1972 and Wagner has drawn inspiration of Town's historic triumphs by filling the training ground walls with previous glories. But Huddersfield coach David Wagner is hoping the expectations of the capacity crowd will bog the home team down rather than energise them. "If we get promoted, this is for sure a reload of the Leicester story", he said. Lire la suite »

We have won nothing yet - Zidane


The capital club head to Malaga on Sunday three points clear of Barcelona, who will retain their crown if they beat Eibar and Real lose on the south coast, due to their superior goal difference.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has taught John Terry a lesson

You can work as hard as you want, but if the team are playing well and winning you are not going to get back in. The defender has scored in 17 consecutive Premier League seasons. The game had barely restarted when Watford drew level within two minutes. Sebastian Prodl was sent off for two bookable offences as Watford lost their composure towards the end. Lire la suite »

Boston will select first for the first time since the lottery began in 1985. Oh, and, as you can see above, the Celtics are getting the Nets' first-round pick next year too. 2 overall pick and used it on Len Bias, who died two days later of a cocaine overdose.

Arsene Wenger chose to start Alexis Sanchez vs Sunderland hours before kick-off

Arsenal are also at home, to Everton , but unless Liverpool or Manchester City slip up badly it will mean the Europa League for the Gunners and even more reasons for Sanchez to walk away from the club this summer. "No it's Tuesday night against Sunderland, everybody expects us to win". Asked about the poor attendance at the Emirates, Wenger said he "didn't count the number of people who were in the seats" and nor is he counting out Arsenal's chances of finishing in the top four come ...

Conte wants more at EPL champions Chelsea

He must think to give me a bit of chocolate cake to share. For this reason we keep the best players. Chelsea were eighth, eight points behind leaders Manchester City after that loss at Emirates Stadium. In this season, we have lost Ivanovic, Mikel and next season we lose John Terry", Conte was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror in April. With victory tonight, we will equal the record for most wins in a single Premier League season, which now stands at 29. Lire la suite »
