Danny Ings gives Southampton deserved victory over woeful Tottenham as Harry Kane goes off injured


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>


Tottenham had themselves gone 17 games without a clean sheet away from home – their longest such sequence for more than 40 years – and it was quickly easy to see why.

A starting midfield two of Christian Eriksen and Tanguy Ndombele was providing only limitethe club’s troubles.Pogba has been linked with Juventus and Real Madrid after a poor season at Old Trafford.But Bosnich believes the World Cup winner should be the centrepiece of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.He told RT of Pogba’s critics: “I think a ld shield to a back four that now looks collectively ponderous.

Nathan Redmond had started for Southampton in a more central position alongside Ings in attack and soon dribbled inside Toby Alderweireld before forcing a good save by the former Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Centre-back Jack Stephens then cut open Tottenham’s entire defence with a perfectly weighted but still well signposted pass from inside Southampton’s half. Ings ran onto the pass and, displaying all his vast confidence, brilliantly flicked the ball inside Alderweireld before wrong-footing Gazzaniga to finish inside the near post. It was not quite Paul Gascoigne against Scotland at Euro ’96 but at least comparable. Ndombele, a £55 million signing, was then almost immediately forced off for Tottenham with what a frustrated Mourinho estimated was his 10th injury of the season.

Tottenham did finally create two clear chances shortly before half-time. Kane’s shot from just outside the penalty area was sufficiently powerful to prompt a spillage by Alex McCarthy but he just recovered in time to smother Dele Alli’s follow up. The resulting corner did then fall invitingly to Jan Vertonghen on the edge of the six-yard box but he hooked his effort well over.

Southampton again tried to take the game to Tottenham at the start of the second-half, with Redmond volleying a clear chance over and then Alderweireld surviving a confident penalty appeal for handball. The ball had certainly been fired in powerfully by Ryan Bertrand – and it is doubtful whether Alderweireld could really have got out of the way – but it did very clearly strike his outstretched arm.

Tottenham became increasingly dominant in possession but were struggling badly to create clear chances until Kane’s last touch of the game. He had latched onto a free-kick but just timed his run to be marginally offside, behind Jack Stephens, as the ball was played. The disappointment of a raised offside flag was then compounded when he immediately grasped his hamstring. Tottenham pressed forward in the closing minutes but, beyond a Lucas Moura shot that was well charged down, rarely looked like creating an equaliser.

Peter Beardsley charged by FA with using racially-abusive language towards Newcastle youth players


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

The FA announced it had charged Beardsley with three breaches of its rule E3(1) and E3(2). 

In a statement theEden Hazard decides to leave Stamford Bridge.Hazard said on Sunday that he had informed Chelsea of where he wants to play football next season, with the most probable destination being Real Madrid.Finding a replacement for Hazard won’t be easy, but L governing body said: “It is alleged Mr Beardsley used abusive and/or insulting words towards Newcastle United Under-23 players, which were contrary to FA Rule E3(1), whilst employed as their coach. It is further alleged these words also constituted an ‘Aggravated Breach’, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as they included reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race and/or nationality.”

With Beardsley not working in football at present, any potential sanctions against him would be delayed until he was back in the game. If found guilty, the most likely ­punishment would be a five-match ban, similar to the one given to ­Sophie Jones, the Sheffield United women’s player who was found guilty of making racially charged taunts in a game against Tottenham Hotspur. She continues to deny th.Otamendi has a contract until 2022 and his agent says the dream is to round out his career at River.”Nicolas’ wish is to end his career at River, he dies to play there,” Martin Sendoa told TyC Sports.”He is good (in City), he plays more than last yee allegations.

Newcastle had started their ­investigation into Beardsley on the basis of complaints from a former academy player, Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, who has left the club since the alleged bullying took place and is now at Scunthorpe United.

Ben El-Mhanni’s allegations, which Beardsley denies, were supported by fellow players. An independent appeal last year found that Beardsley’s treatment of Ben ­El-Mhanni was “generally unfair”.

A 59-cap England international, Beardsley has had two stints at Newcastle, the first of which was when he quit as a player in 1999. He returned to the club as a coach in 2009 and has worked in a number of roles, including briefly as caretatuation is resolved soon.The Serbian is out of contract in the summer, but the Red Devils may want to offer him a new deal.Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently hinted that Matic may have earned a new deal.The player does want to stay, but admits he ker manager of the senior team in 2010. He was cleared of bullying two Newcastle academy players by a Premier League inquiry in 2003.

In a statement when he left Newcastle, Beardsley said: “The time is now right for me to seek a new challenge and I wish the players all the best and the supporters the success they deserve.

“I have always honoured my ­contractual obligations of confidentiality to the club and maintained my silence, which has been very difficult. I am incredibly grateful for the tremendous support I have received and I look forward to the future.”

Top 10 reasons to get psyched for Buffalo's Wild Card game


10. It’s the playoffs!

Playoffs, people. I’m talking about the NFL playoffs! It’s been a long time coming but, after 17 seasons, the Buffalo Bills are finally back in the dance and we couldn’t be more excited. Taking on AFC South opponent in the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bills will give it their all to stay alive in the postseason.

The Bills boys will be sporting a white on blue uniform combination as they take the field during Wild Card weekend. Get a glimpse of the fresh look:

Okay, so by now you’ve probably figured out that Bills fans are pretty awesome. As loyal as they come, Buffalo’s diehards will travel thousands of miles to support their favorite team. This week will be no different down in Jacksonville. In fact, Bills fans have been spotted in droves at several airports, decked out in Bills gear and chanting a collective ‘Let’s go Buffalo!’ Get ready Jags. We’re taking over.

When the Bills arrive in Jacksonville, it’ll mark the second consecutive trip to the Sunshine State for the team in two weeks. Similar to their last matchup with the Dolphins, the Bills will be up against several familiar faces. Chief among them are Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who each spent the 2013-14 seasons in Buffalo. Jags defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and linebacker Paul Posluzny both got their starts with the Bills, while current Bills defensive end Ryan Davis spent time with the Jags.

ed a move to Atletico Madrid, it has been revealed.El Larguero says the Uruguay international has given his approval to the move after falling out with PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.For the moment, any move will depend on Atletico selling Diego Costa.While

Looking to party like it’s 1999? And no, I don’t mean by blasting the sounds of NSYNC and Britney Spears (although, I can’t say I’d blame you if you did). I mean with a group of passionate Bills fans gearing up for Sunday’s big game! For fans who will be in the area, the will be hosting a party Saturday, Jan. 6. Round up your herd and head on down!

Bills head coach Sean McDermott has made quite asuspended this summer.The Italian – who boasts Manchester United star Paul Pogba and Ajax captain Matthijs De Ligt among his clients – was last month slapped with a ban from dealing with transfers anywhere in the world.Raiola had previously been handn impression around the League. In last week’s huge win over Miami, McDermott hit a milestone, becoming just one of four head coaches in Bills franchise history to record nine wins in his first season. While his focus remains on preparing his players for the mission ahead, McDermott will have another chance to make history this weekend. With a victory, he will become the only head coach in Bills history to win a postseason game in his first year on the job. Not too shabby, coach.

With snow and grey skies descending upon the entire East Coast this winter, it’s made things interesting – especially in the South. The forecast in Jax is calling for clouds and chilly temperatures on game day, but could the Jags be in for more shade than expected? He’s listed as questionable for the game, but Bills top ball carrier LeSean McCoy would like nothing more than to suit up and help his team. Here’s to hoping for a Shady Sunday.

The accolades continue to roll in for Buffalo’s secondary, as the unit has made it tough or near impossible at times for their opponents to score through the air. Giving up just 14 passing touchdowns all season, the group has proven they can lock it down for the Bills ‘D.’ Safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer finished the regular season with five picks each and rookie Tre White has forced five turnovers in the fourth quarter. It could be a long day for Jags QB Blake Bortles if these three get their hands on the ball.

Kyle Williams has been holding it down for the Bills defense since ’06. Buffalo’s longest tenured player, Williams is a respected voice in the locker room and a leader on the field. Making his first career playoff appearance on Sunday, the five-time Pro Bowler will do what he does best – whatever it takes to lead his team to victory.

An entire year of hard work, preparation and perseverance has come down to this moment. Earning the right to represent their city in the postseason, the Buffalo Bills will look to make the most out of the opportunity. It will be a challenge, but with a win is debut for Tottenham in their draw at Manchester City.A deadline day loan signing from Real Betis, the Argentine international replaced fellow countryman Erik Lamela in attacking midfield five minutes from the end of normal time in what was a sternthis Sunday, the Bills will advance in the NFL playoffs and continue on their journey that started long before the season. 

Brighton and Huddersfield trade crucial mistakes to share the points


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

A mistake by Jonas Lossl, the Huddersfield goalkeeper, was quickly cancelled out by an even starker error of judgement by Brighton centre-back Shane Duffy as both sides traded mistakes to deliver a stalemate that does little to unravel the tangle towards the foot of the Premier League table.

The 74th minute dismissal of midfielder Davey Propper for a challenge on Jonathan Hogg meant Brighton had cauested in recruiting Joe Cole.The former Hammer is currently coaching at Chelsea’s academy.”We’re looking at it,” Moyes said. “I don’t think we will have it all together just now, there are several people looking for a position and others who we are lse for relief that they avoided a second successive defeat, but both managers were entitled to think this was an opportunity missed.

Lossl’s failure to deal with Solly March’s shot gave Brighton a 29th minute lead which might have laid the foundation for a victory that would have moved Chris Hughton’s side well clear of the bottom three. Instead, Duffy’s misplaced back-pass three minutes later allowed Steve Mounie to equaliser with Huddersfield’s first goal in 427 minutes and while both teams had opportunities to claim victory, neither could produce the moment of composure to settle the outcome.

For Hughton, this was another frustrating afternoon at the Amex Stadium. The manager had described his side’s defeat to Leicester City here seven days previously as ‘unjust’ and there was little doubt Brighton contributed to their own downfall with Glenn Murray failing to convert a 77th minute penalty with the game scoreless. A team fighting relegation can only afford to squander so many chances yet it seemed Albion had failed to learn their lesson when they opened up the Huddersfield defence inside the opening minute only for Propper to send his shot wide when clear on goal.

Inevitably there was a sense inside the Amex Stadium that Propper’s miss might prove costly, particularly as Hughton’s players were betraying signs of nerves. However, home tensions were eased when March capped a swift break by creating space on the edge of the Huddersfield penalty area and delivering a low shot that caught Lossl out at his near post. The keeper was slow to get down and, after tipping the ball onto the post, could not avoid deflecting the rebound in off hiss head.

Brighton were in control and simply needed a period of cgrateful for his experiences with the team this season.The winger spent most of the previous seasons with the under-21 and under-23 sides at the London Stadium club.The penny dropped this season and Diangana has not looked back, with the 21-year-old alm to consolidate their adas named six Liverpool players in his Champions League team of the season. The Reds done one better than last season by clinching the trophy thanks to Saturday’s win over Tottenham Hotspur.Christian Eriksen was the only Spurs player named by the Portvantage. Instead, they contrived to gift Huddersfield a route back into the game three minutes later when Duffy hit a back-pass  towards Mat Ryan without spotting the presence of Mounie who rounded the keeper before rolling home the equaliser.

Huddersfield ended the first half on top and while Brighton created a number of good chances at the start of second half, the dismissal of Propper for a high challenge on Hogg meant the home side ended the game grateful substitute Colin Quaner failed to convert a good opportunity in added time.

Pat Tillman and Rob Moore: A friendship worth fighting for


It was a friendship that started with a bang. Literally.

Pat Tillman was a rookie linebacker on the Arizona Cardinals in 1998, and current Bills wide receivers coach Rob Moore was an 8-year veteran receiver.

Tillman had already earned a reputation for hurting players during practice when the two were put on opposite sides of the ball during a 7-on-7, non-contact drill.

“Pat hit me and took me to the ground,” said Moore, who didn’t get it, and didn’t like it. “So naturally, he and I got into a slight scuffle.”

But before he let hot-headedness cement his views on the rookie, Moore got a recommendation that would turn that hit into something much more meaningful.

“One of the coaches said, ‘Look, instead of fighting the kid, why don’t you pull Pat aside and try to teach him to be a pro.’ So I kind of took him under my wing.”

From then on, Moore was assigned to Tillman. The two sat next to each other on every team plane ride, where Moore would quickly come to know Tillman’s strength of character and “scary intelligence.”

“The conversations we would have were unbelievable,” said Moore. “We would talk about everything from where healthcare was going to who we were voting for to be president and why, to what it’s like to be a father. We had a friendship, and it went beyond the white lines ofnders for the UK and Ireland after failing to receive adequate bids, leaving the rights-holder without broadcast partnerships in the two territories heading into the new season, reports SportBusiness.A LaLiga spokesperson told SportBusiness Media on football.”

He said Tillman would quote Ralph Waldo Emerson and other notable writers on a whim in mid-conversation, and recite the book he read from and the page number too.

Their friendship became one of substance, not just of hard-hits and gridiron aggression. They learned from each other on those plane rides, diving deep past the surface, and surely past what their counterparts two seats over were discussing.

“I remember distinctly, one of the conversations we had was how disappointed he was in himself because his exact words were, ‘I haven’t done a damn thing. My grandfather fought in a war and his dad fought in a war and I’m just a football player. I haven’t done anything and that doesn’t sit well with me.’ We had that conversation.”

So when Moore found out that Tillman had enlisted in the Army and would be deployed to Iraq, it didn’t surprise him one bit.

Tillman only knew one way, Moore said, and that way was going through life with unbridled conviction. The hits during practice, his philosophies on life, leaving a prosperous NFL career behind to enlist in the Army  – everything fell in line with that all-or-nothing mentality.

“Sixty miles per hour? Try 120,” said Moore. “Pat only knew one way. But you learned to love him because of that. And on gameday you didn’t want to play with anybody else because he always had your back.”

Tillman knew when he enlisted that he would soon be overseas in harm’s way, but similar to the way he had the backs of his teammates, he was ready to fight to defend the United States of America. He was “doing something that mattered,” and that fulfilled his life’s purpose more than what he did every Sunday on the football field.

Tillman was killed in action ten years ago in a friendly fire accident in the mountains of Afghanistan at the age of 27. Though the end of a life as young and rich as his never makes perfect sense, Moore has come to appreciate the symbolism of a life liv Neville jokes that watching a Man City vs. Liverpool title race is “worse than a funeral.”The Red Devils legend has to watch as two of his side’s bitterest rivals go head to head for another Premier League title.Liverpool are in the driving seat, ased so passionately lost in sacrifice for itruck in the 4-2 victory.Fonseca said, “I spoke to Edin Dzeko a great deal during pre-season. He is a very important player. He scored a goal today, could’ve had more, but he is an excellent forward.“We changed a few things this evening. Pellegrits country.

“They say that certain people will leave this earth a certain way. I think that the way he left was who Pat Tillman was,” he said. “He’s a guy who was going to fight for the cause. He was fighting for something he truly believed in. He was trying to satisfy an urge in himself, something that hadn’t sat well with him. He wanted to give back and I think he went out in the way in which he wanted to, fighting for his country.”

Moore has photos of his friend hanging in his house in Arizona where he says he can still feel his presence.

“We talk about having the spirit of charity and giving and those things – I think at the end of the day he sacrificed his life, and I don’t know what more you would give.”
