Lukas Podolski's farewell stunner downs England Lukas Podolski's farewell stunner downs England
- March 30, 2017

Lukas Podolski's wonderful goal secured the hosts a 1-0 win against the impressive Three Lions, with the match going ahead just hours after the terror attack in Westminster. If it was slightly peculiar to see Germany looking so susceptible on their own ground, it was worth noting that Joachim Löw's team quickly gave the impression they meant to address the match at three-quarter pace and would be grateful if their opponents did likewise.

- March 30, 2017

He failed to win either of the first two holes, missing 15-foot birdie putts while Johnson had birdie putts of 92 and 42 feet. "I believe in my ability, and I know what it takes to win out here", Johnson said.

Indeed, it was the kind of magic Spanish great Seve Ballesteros for so long produced. (more...)
Pep Guardiola : Goals the missing ingredient for Manchester City, says manager
- March 30, 2017

Sergio Aguero's 69th-minute equaliser meant City emerged with a point from Sunday's ding-dong battle with Liverpool , but Guardiola said his forwards' lack of ruthlessness was holding the team back. In the first half, there was Nicolas Otamendi's pull on Sadio Mane as the Liverpool forward ran clean on goal. The first goal came in the 51st minute when Roberto Firmino was fouled in the penalty area by Gael Clichy, allowing James Milner to step up and slot home from the spot. (more...)

Saints coach Payton: Team not looking to bring in Manziel Saints coach Payton: Team not looking to bring in Manziel
- March 30, 2017

Butler has to sign his $3.91 million restricted tender before he can be traded. Payton didn't slam the door on adding Manziel, but Payton also didn't create the impression that anything will be happening soon, and that plenty of additional conversations with Manziel would be needed before an understanding would be reached as to an arrangement between Manziel and the Saints.

Elway: Broncos 'to stay the course' with young QBs Elway: Broncos 'to stay the course' with young QBs
- March 29, 2017

At this point in the offseason, Denver is expected to move forward with Siemian and Lynch and will likely have the two signal callers battle it out in training camp to see who will emerge as the starter for 2017. Paige went on to write that Broncos general manager John Elway shouldn't have a problem giving up a seventh round pick in order to acquire Romo, since they have enough money to take on his current contract with the Cowboys.

Ward's sharp finish from Chris Brunt's ball into the box put Michael O'Neill's side on the front front and lifted the Windsor Park crowd to even greater heights after it had ensured a rousing atmosphere at kick-off. It was Ward and Conor Washington whose goals laid the foundations for Sunday's win and with a defence marshalled by Gareth McAuley, Jonny Evans and Craig Cathcart, the hosts once again proved unbreakable in keeping a fourth clean sheet of the campaign.

Arsene Wenger wants to stay on at Arsenal
- March 29, 2017

Arsenal didn't return to Premier League action in the fashion they would have liked this weekend, after being handed a 3-1 defeat by West Brom that hands the Gunners a significant blow in their quest for a top-four finish. "He stayed on, but in the second half he was not himself so I chose to take him off". He was just as helpless in watching another dismal performance from his side, who conceded two goals from set pieces as sloppy defending cost them a chance to close in on the top four. (more...)

Nike, Under Armour to Battle It Out in Final Four
- March 28, 2017

So it'll be a year of firsts in Phoenix. I don't recall people deriding North Carolina a year ago for catching breaks, but the run was nearly identical until the Tar Heels faced Villanova in the final. It's beaten three top-15 teams in one week. Yes, UNC has saved face for the conference, but it could end early with a stiff test against Oregon. If Kentucky wins the battle of the boards again, it should reach the Final Four . (more...)

In his first match since food poisoning ended his run to the quarter-finals in Indian Wells, Kyrgios dropped his first two service games before seizing control en route to a 6-4 6-3 win over Bosnian Dzumhur on Sunday (AEDT). I'm not going to get the surprise really a second time around because I saw the power he had, the explosiveness he had. And it should feed a player like him with a lot of energy moving forward hopefully... (more...)

Fittingly, he now owns the most points scored in a game since Bryant scored 81 against the Toronto Raptors in 2006. However, it's likely safe to say that even Booker's biggest fans never imagined that he would ever be able to do what he did last night - dropping 70 points on the Boston Celtics. (more...)
