Pogba into the anti-Scott McTominay

In theory, it ought to have been a fine day for the brand. “Glory, glory Man United” echoed around Old Trafford as Manchester United closed in on a record-equalling 13th FA Cup. The marketing department could savour the sight of two of José Mourinho’s bigger buys on the scoresheet. Nike NFL Jack Ham Black Jersey Youth Elite: #59 Pittsburgh Steelers Home Vapor Untouchable  Yet two more languished unused on the bench even before “United” began to appear an inappropriate suffix as…

Jack Wilshere weaves his magic to

There was a bit of a debate going on before this match. Hey, this is Arsenal we’re talking about after all. Anyway, the theme this time was whether the Milan match was something of a hiding to nothing for the Gunners. Win it and earn no congratulation, lose and it’s not worth contemplating. Would the fans care?…

José Mourinho is pretty much

There was a slightly ghostly moment in the second half at Old Trafford as Manchester United were euthanised from the Champions League knockout stages, a sense of worlds colliding, timelines crossed. Limited Youth Clint Boling White Road Jersey: NFL Nike Cincinnati Bengals #65 Vapor Untouchable Wissam Ben Yedder had just eased the ball into the corner of David de Gea’s net to make the score 1-0 on the night. As the Sevilla players romped in front of their away support and…

World Cup stunning moments

Of the great World Cup upsets – the USA’s victory over England in 1950, North Korea’s over Italy in 1966 and Algeria’s over West Germany in 1982 probably push it close – this one stands alone in myth and memory. It was not a perfect match but it was an irresistible narrative, as the World Cup champions, led by the great Diego Maradona, were vanquished by an unheralded team largely assembled of journeymen players from the French lower divisions – though for some of them even that was…

José Mourinho plays down Manchester

José Mourinho attempted to play down the significance of Manchester United’s exit from the Champions League as former players turned television pundits savaged his Rod Woodson Jersey side’s limp display against Sevilla. Rio Ferdinand described the performance as lethargic and added that Alexis Sánchez looked a shadow of his former self while Paul Scholes called for the Chilean to be…

West Ham accused of behaving

West Ham United have been described as behaving like “ostriches with their heads in the sand” by a Labour MP who has written to Karren Brady demanding to know why the club have not condemned the abuse and threats aimed at the chairman of one of their supporter groups last week. Elite Men's Johnthan Banks Orange Jersey: NFL Nike Chicago Bears #35 Rush Vapor Untouchable Wes Streeting, the MP for Ilford North, has contacted West Ham’s vice-chairman to ask why the board has…

Tom Huddlestone sent off but Derby

The ‘Brian Clough Trophy’ was scrapped over with appropriate insistency but, had the bearer of its name been in either dressing room, he might have had words to say about the lack of anything else. Neither Nottingham Forest nor Derby County could feel put out after a ragged draw that essentially continued both teams’ form going into it; a late red card for Tom Huddlestone, provided the talking point although it would be a generous reading of events that ascribed it any real impact on…

Mesut Özil springs to life to offer

With eight minutes gone in this meeting of upper-to-mid‑table powers there was a significant little wonky detail. Arsenal had just taken the lead on an afternoon when they passed the ball with speed and verve through midfield, with Mesut Özil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan producing some sublime touches. Youth Nike Denver Broncos #8 Brandon McManus Limited Olive/Camo 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey It was from Özil’s free-kick that Shkodran Mustafi rose above a mildly…

style to expect from Mourinho

Jürgen Klopp said Liverpool and Manchester United knew what style of football they were getting when appointing him and José Mourinho and that a defensive approach would be Garett Bolles Authentic Jersey tolerated at Anfield only if it delivered silverware. Jaguars Official Jersey  Liverpool head to Old…

over protest march

West Ham United have been accused of failing to respond appropriately after the chairman of one of their supporter groups was left fearing for his safety, having received abuse and threats over attempts to organise a protest march against the club’s board before Saturday’s home game against Burnley. Youth Anaheim Ducks #37 Nick Ritchie Reebok White Away Authentic NHL Jersey Mark Walker, the head of the West Ham United Independent Supporters’ Association…

Dejan Lovren blames bad Liverpool form

Dejan Lovren has said an attempted break-in at his Liverpool home had a “horrific” impact on his family and affected his performances earlier in the season. Men's Nike Kansas City Chiefs #87 Travis Kelce Limited Red Player Name & Number Tank Top NFL Jersey The Liverpool defender was targeted by thieves twice last year – while on holiday in Zagreb in June, when cash and jewellery were stolen from his apartment, and while attending the Champions League game against Maribor at…

precarious position at Barcelona

People are predicting the end of the Premier League as we know it just because Chelsea showed so little ambition against Manchester City when they had a chance to at least lay a glove on the champions elect. Men's Adidas Milwaukee Bucks #34 Ray Allen Authentic White Home NBA Jersey It is one thing for a team such as Newcastle to attempt to keep the score down against top sides in the hope of a favourable goal difference at the end of the season but if the…

Chiellini edge Juve past Spurs

For an hour at Wembley, with the quarter-finals of the Champions League beckoning and the scalp of Juventus already partially hacked from canary‑yellow neck, Tottenham found themselves playing like a team in the process of becoming something else, of forgetting, just for an hour, to be Spurs. …

Analysing just how bad Arsenal

Arsène Wenger’s toughest task in his long tenure at Arsenal may well be putting a positive spin on a decline that will surely bring his time at the club to an end in a real whimper. Arsenal’s defeat at Brighton on Sunday was their fourth in their last five league games and their fourth in succession on the road. Wenger managed to avoid losing four straight away games in his first 20 years at the club but has now succumbed to that fate in two consecutive seasons. …

Nemanja Matic’s stunning winner

It said everything about the outlandish denouement to this contest that Nemanja Matic, such an improbable matchwinner, was still wearing a look of Authentic Josh Reddick Jersey shock and disbelief as he pinched himself through his post-match interviews. The Serb had not scored for Manchester United since his summer arrival from Chelsea, so few would have envisaged him plucking a frenzied game’s decisive…

Leader Davide Astori is fondly

Serie A stopped for Davide Astori on Sunday. This was supposed to be the biggest weekend of the season, the biggest for many seasons, perhaps, all of the top eight sides pairing off against one another with everything from the Scudetto to Champions League places and Milan derby bragging rights up for grabs. Then a young man died and none of it really seemed to matter. Majestic Maikel Franco Authentic Men's Jersey - MLB Philadelphia Phillies #7 Scarlet Flex Base 2017 Spring Training Astori was…

Mauricio Pochettino

Verily and forsooth, this jousting idea could catch on. Neither of these sides is in a position to tilt for the title but Jürgen Klopp’s image of knights in armour engaged in face-to-facecombat proved surprisingly accurate. No suggestion of parking the bus here, or even leaving the lance at home and just doing battle with the shield. There were never any horses anywhere on show but obviously plenty of Spurs. …

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal have reached agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund over the club-record €63m (£55.5m) signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, though the completion of the deal may yet hinge on rival clubs, including Chelsea, securing their own reinforcements as the January transfer window looks set for a frantic finale. Youth Minnesota Wild #25 Jonas Brodin Reebok White Away Premier NHL Jersey Negotiations have been ongoing for Aubameyang for a fortnight…

Michy Batshuayi double helps

At the end of a stress-free victory for Antonio Conte’s men, Chelsea had safely navigated a passage into the FA Cup fifth round for the 18th time in 20 seasons and the crowd were standing to acclaim their manager after one of those intermittent periods – such is modern life at Stamford Bridge – when he has come under scrutiny for the apparent crime of not having the Premier League sewn up. …Men's Nike New York Jets #26 Marcus Maye Limited Black 2016 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
