Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses scored for Chelsea as they easily brushed aside a tame Burnley side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon to maintain their perfect record.Hazard capitalized on a turnover in possession to drive forward into the Burnley half and finish emphatically into the bottom corner from 20 yards to give his side the lead. He then had an effort cleared off the line minutes later.Willian doubled Chelseas lead with a powerful strike from the angle while Diego Costa squandered a couple of chances as Chelsea (3-0-0) went in two goals up at the break.Tom Heaton made a number of fine saves for Burley (1-0-2), particularly from Costa as the score somehow remained 2-0 in the second 45 minutes while John Terry missed an open goal from a rebound four yards out.However, the hosts did get a deserved third in injury time as late substitutions from Antonio Conte once again contributed to a goal.Mitchy Batshuayi found Pedro breaking forward on the counter and the Spaniard delivered a great cross for Moses to tap home.A thoroughly satisfying afternoons work for the Blues once more, but Sean Dyches men have some serious work to do for the season ahead if this display was anything to go by.

To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. NEW YORK -- Darwin Barneys soft single fell into right field and Scott Feldman took off running, then rounded second and -- wait, was he trying for third? "I didnt know what I was doing, actually," the Cubs pitcher said. "I kind of just decided to go I guess." Like just about everything else Feldman did against the Mets on Saturday it worked out. Feldman allowed two hits in seven innings and the Cubs beat the Mets 5-2. Feldman hit a two-run single in the fourth, setting up his slow-motion scamper on the bases. He rounded second and headed for third, drawing a throw that seemed as if it had a chance to get him. Of course, it didnt. He slid in -- head first -- and beat the throw and David Wrights tag. "Dont want to make the third out at third, so I just tried to do everything I could to just sneak my hand in there," Feldman said. Said Wright: "I think I got him pretty good on the arm with my spike." Feldman (6-5) got it done on the mound, too. He struck out six and Starlin Castro hit a two-run double to left in the Cubs three-run eighth and Kevin Gregg got the last three outs for his ninth straight save. The Cubs stranded 10 runners in the first seven innings before breaking it open in the eighth. Scott Rice allowed a hit and a walk around a sacrifice, then Brandon Lyon came on and gave up a single to load the bases before walking Cody Ransom to force in a run. Castro then had his hit, which could have scored three runs if it hadnt bounced over the wall. "I think were just getting better swings in fastball counts, in hitters counts," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "Were taking advantage of situations now that we havent for a long piece of the season." Chicago beat the Mets for the second day in a row, after losing five of seven before getting to Queens. The Mets got a run back in the bottom of the eighth on Jordany Valdespins single off Carlos Villanueva, but Wright struck out with runners on second and third and fans streamed for the exits. "In the eighth inning, there was silence in the dugout and the feeling was like Here we go again," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "Losing is as big of a habit as winning." Jonathon Niese (3-6) left with two outs in the fifth inning and a man on second. He finished having allowed two runs, six hits and four walks with five strikeouts. He is 0-2 in his past four starts. "Niese battled without having his best stufff," Collins said.dddddddddddd"He battled into the sixth inning and didnt want to come out and thats what I want. Guys who dont want to come out of the game." Before his double bounced over the wall, Castro had stranded five runners and struck out three times, including with the bases loaded to end the fourth. In the fourth inning, Wright followed Daniel Murphys leadoff double with a double of his own to cut the lead to 2-1, but he was stranded at second. The Mets hit three long fly balls in the sixth, but all were caught pretty much right at the wall. "It seemed like they were running down balls all day in the outfield for me," Feldman said. Feldman has bounced back nicely after a rough final season in Texas, where he spent the first eight seasons of his career. He only has one outing shorter than six innings this year after a rocky April, and has become a fixture in the Cubs rotation. Which explains why Sveum was cringing as he saw the big right-hander come around second base. "Why are you going to third? Youre a starting pitcher and you have a bad knee, thats what I was thinking as he was running to third," Sveum said. He pointed out later that it was for the best that Feldman, who has an old knee injury, slid head first. Feldman had something else on his mind later -- when was the last time he did a headfirst slide? "Ha! Man, probably college," Feldman said. "Still had pretty good form though, right?" NOTES: Mets GM Sandy Alderson told season ticket holders Saturday morning that "over the next six months or so, we will be in a position make some significant acquisitions, whether its through free agency or a trade. ... The Mets called up right-hander Carlos Torres from Las Vegas and optioned right-hander Greg Burke to the Triple-A team. To make room on the 40-man roster, the club designated right-hander Collin McHugh for assignment. Torres was 6-3 with a 3.89 ERA in 12 starts for Las Vegas. ... Ransom had two singles, two walks and reached on an error his first five times up before striking out in the ninth. ... The Cubs were 3 for 18 with runners in scoring position. ... Wright tied his career best by reaching in nine straight plate appearances, but his deep drive to left in the sixth inning was caught at the wall. ... Mets 2B Valdespin let Ransom move up a base in the first when he misfired while attempting to return the ball to Niese after Ransoms single. He was charged with an error. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '

West Brom is possibly the most dangerous team in the league


CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cam Newton breaks into a smile, barely able to control his enthusiasm when thinking about the prospect of wide receiver Devin Funchess lining up opposite Kelvin Benjamin this season.Newton, the leagues MVP, may never have to worry about overthrowing another target again given the receiving corps the Panthers have assembled. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Funchess will replace Jerricho Cotchery in the starting lineup, giving Newton another huge target to go along with the 6-5, 250-pound Benjamin and 6-5, 255-pound tight end Greg Olsen in the passing game.Weve got something only God can give us: size, speed and strength, Newton said.Funchess never got to play with Benjamin in 2015. Benjamin tore his ACL in training camp, ending his season before it had a chance to begin. Funchess went on to catch 31 passes for 473 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie in a reserve role, helping the Panthers reach the Super Bowl and finish 17-2.With Benjamin coming back and Funchess stepping up, the Panthers didnt attempt to re-sign Cotchery.Coach Ron Rivera has described Funchess as being light years ahead of last season. He said Funchess is playing faster and with more confidence.Youre seeing what hes going to add to the offense, Rivera said. We saw that at the end of the year last year. Everybody was waiting for him, and then in midseason he kind of came into his own and made some things happen. By the end of the season, he got better and stronger, and thats what hes doing right now, getting stronger, learning the plays. Hes learning how to use that big body like Kelvin does.Funchess said he feels more comfortable with offensive coordinator Mike Shulas system entering his second season.Im just smoothing out my routes and learning how to use my hands to get off the ball and get separation, Funchess said.Newton, who is 6-5, 250 himself, expects both big receivers will play a huge role in 2016 as the Panthers try to build off a season in which they led the league in scoring.The wide receiver position has changed to a degree, Newton said. You look around the league and see Odell (Beckham), Antonio Brown, those quick little shifty guys. But having a Benji, having Fun(chess), having guys that are 6-5, 6-6 and are able to move and able to jump as well, and you know the average (defensive back) is probably 5-foot-9, 5-10, that size and girth is an edge for you.Funchess isnt afraid to get physical either.In practice Tuesday he took exception to rookie cornerback Daryl Worleys failed attempt to punch the ball out after Funchess hauled in a pass. When Worleys punch caught Funchess in the throat, the receiver wound up in a scuffle on the ground, unwilling to let go of Worleys facemask until coaches came into break them up.Rivera warned he doesnt want to see that in a game, but its pretty clear he likes the energy and physicality the 2015 second-round pick possesses.With Ted Ginn Jr., Philly Brown, Brenton Bersin, Stephen Hill, Kevin Norwood and Damiere Byrd all competing for roster spots at receiver, the Panthers have some tough decisions ahead further down the depth chart. Rivera doesnt seem to mind.Its a good group, Rivera said.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Ray Neal Jersey Retro. -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday.

MANCHESTER, England -- David Moyes called it just nine days into the season.Asked after consecutive losses whether it will be another relegation battle for Sunderland in the Premier League, the teams recently hired manager said, I think it will be. I dont think you can hide the facts. That will be the case, yes.Admirable honesty, sure, but exactly the kind of pessimism Sunderland fans didnt want to hear so early in the season. It has set the tone for another woeful start to a league campaign by the northeast club.Sunderland is in last place in the Premier League, with just two points from nine games, and is the only side in Englands four professional leagues without a league victory this season. Its the second consecutive season in which Sunderland has failed to win any of its first eight league games, which hasnt happened since Bury did so in 1905 and 1906.With Arsenal heading to the Stadium of Light on Saturday on an unbeaten run of 13 matches in all competitions, the likelihood is Sunderlands misery will be prolonged another week.Even for the greatest escapologists of the Premier League, staying up this season will be some feat. The Black Cats may have run out of lives.Sunderland has narrowly avoided relegation for the past four years via the same means: A mid-season managerial change followed by a drastic upturn in late-season results. Steve Bruce was the last manager to complete a full season at Sunderland -- and that was in 2009-10.Since then, Martin ONeill (16 months across two seasons), Paolo Di Canio (six months), Gus Poyet (18 months across two seasons), Dick Advocaat (seven months), and Sam Allardyce (nine months) have come and gone through the Stadium of Lights revolving door.Moyes is the latest in the sorry cycle, and recent history suggests he will not last the season before the clubs American owner, Ellis Short, reaches for another savior to keep Sunderland in the worlds most lucrative domestic league.You can change one guy, Moyes said, but it has been proved in the past here, that is not the answer.Moyes was in charge of Everton for 11 years before being hired by Manchester United in 2013 as Alex Fergusons hand-picked replacement with the aim of creating another dynasty at Englands biggest club. He lasted 10 months at Old Trafford, the job proving far too big for him.Moyes attempted to reebuild his reputation at Real Socieded in Spain, but was fired a day before completing a year in charge.dddddddddddd Now its all going wrong at Sunderland.The squad lacks depth, although long-term injuries have robbed Moyes of key players such as goalkeeper Vito Mannone, midfielder Sebastien Larsson and forwards Adnan Januzaj and Fabio Borini. His policy of signing former players from Manchester United and Everton -- injury-prone pair Steven Pienaar and Victor Anichebe among them -- had an air of desperation about it. Worryingly, Jermain Defoe, the 34-year-old former England striker, appears the only reliable source of goals.Moyes latest disappointment occurred on Wednesday, when Sunderland lost 1-0 at Southampton in the fourth round of the English League Cup. Near the end of the match, Moyes was dismissed from the dugout for swearing at an official when a penalty was not awarded for his side.Has the 53-year-old Scot simply lost his touch?Our lucks out at the moment, but it will change, Moyes said.It hadnt by Thursday. The plane flying Sunderlands players home from the Southampton match reportedly failed to take off in thick fog late Wednesday, meaning they were left stranded on the south coast.Thats hardly the best preparation for Arsenals visit.Heres what else to look out for in the Premier League this weekend:---TOTTENHAM VS. LEICESTERLeicester has lost by a three-goal margin in each of its last three Premier League away games: 4-1 at Liverpool and Manchester United, and 3-0 at Chelsea.It doesnt get any easier for the champions, who must visit unbeaten Tottenham on Saturday, four days before playing in the Champions League against FC Copenhagen.---WEST BROMWICH ALBION VS. MANCHESTER CITYPep Guardiola is in the worst run of his managerial career after Citys winless streak extended to six games with a loss to Manchester United in the League Cup on Wednesday.While City remains top of the league, Guardiola will avoid the kind of criticism that has been aimed at coaching rival Jose Mourinho at United this season.West Brom is possibly the most dangerous team in the league from set pieces, and that is an area its manager, Tony Pulis, will surely target at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

Theyre my backbone and keep me going


Formula 1 faces yet another vote on Thursday, with the sports bosses reconvening to discuss whether aggregate qualifying should replace the little-loved current elimination format. The system was heavily criticised again after its second outing in Bahrain and team bosses met with the sports supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Jean Todt to address the situation.However, no agreement on what to do for the next race in China was reached and a new idea was instead put forward... How would aggregate qualifying work?A drivers two best times in each of the three knockout sessions are combined to find the aggregate and set the order.How will Thursdays vote go?In a bid to keep cars on track for longer - an obvious flaw in the current format - Q1 would be lengthened to 18 minutes, with the slowest seven drivers eliminated at the end of the session. Aggregate laps for qualy? Vote on the format youd like to see used in qualifying Q2 will follow a similar method; the seven drivers with the lowest aggregate times knocked out after 15 minutes.The top eight would then be decided by their fastest two laps in the 12-minute Q3 session.What difference would it have made in Bahrain?Striving for one-lap perfection at the weekend, Lewis Hamilton ran wide at the final corner on his first run in Q3. Though he went on to set the fastest ever time at the Bahrain International Circuit, with an aggregate format the Mercedes driver would have started third on the grid behind Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel. To stress the obvious: the fastest lap would no longer necessarily result in pole position.However, with a minimum two laps required from each driver per session, the criticism that there are not enough cars on track would at least have been a thing of the past. What would teams do to combat the system?With the aggregate system, drivers would be punished for any errors - such as Hamilton in the case above - and could therefore opt for more bankers. Its feasible teams would advise their drivers not to go for broke on a lap in case they made a mistake and slipped down the order.Strategy would be key. Teams could put fuel in for one more lap and run two consecutive fliers only to be usurped by a rival who has used new sets of supersofts on two separate stints, at the beginning and end of the session. Simon Lazenby is joined by Ted Kravitz and Martin Brundle to discuss whether an aggregate qualifying system would work Would it shake up the grid?One change F1 is certainly striving for is extra unpredictability - even though fans will stress that last years qualy format provided just that.Elimination qualifying was seen as the best way of providing grid upsets. However, the only notable unpredictability the format has thrown up so far is Daniil Kvyat and Sergio Perez not making it out of Q1.But the new proposed format may result in even fewer surprises.Take Pascal Wehrlein, one of the standout performers in Bahrain, who squeezed the life out of the Manor with a superb lap to jump into 16th. Force India werent expecting the F1 rookie to trouble Perez and didnt have enough time to counter. When is the Chinese GP on Sky? Sky Sports is the only place to see all the action from Shanghai But using the aggregate system, the Mexican would have finished comfortably ahead of Wehrlein with two laps in the 1:32s.Stoffel Vandoorne - another youngster who made a name for himself in the desert - also wouldnt have made it out of Q1 if this format was adopted in Bahrain, assuming Nico Rosberg, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas set a second flying lap.The final four shootout between Ferrari and Mercedes may run to a familiar beat with the leaders chasing quick-but-not-risky laps to set an impressive aggregate time.But other drivers, particularly those in less-fancied cars, would now need to produce two special laps rather than one to either proceed to the next qualy stage or produce a stand-out result. What about the fans?Aggregate qualifying may be slightly ahead of the elimination format in our vote, but its clear to see F1 fans would prefer a return to 2015s system. It was easy to follow, simple to understand and rewarded the fastest lap with pole.While fans would no longer need to be almost permanently looking down at a clock to check who was going to be counted out next, the aggregate system also appears to have its flaws when it comes to complexity.Moments like Hamiltons record-breaking lap in Bahrain to snatch pole could be eliminated, with fans instead needing to grab a calculator to check if his next fastest lap has given him a leading combined time.Todt, however, is confident the aggregate format will be right for all parties.You need to be patient, by Thursday you will have all the information, he said. I hope that fans will be happy. Will it make a difference for tyres?Sky Sports understands that Pirelli will provide extra sets of tyres for the Chinese GP should aggregate qualifying be approved, though teams could still have to set qualifying laps on used tyres to save rubber for the race. Is it time to change the qualifying format after just two races of the new season? Some of F1s leading drivers have their say What do the drivers think of aggregate qualy?Its fair to say the drivers sound less than enthused by the prospect.Its time to go to the circus, said Sebastian Vettel. Its a good idea if you want random things to happen, but Formula 1 should be about racing. Its a s*** idea.Daniel Ricciardo, meanwhile, stressed: Qualifying is about that one perfect lap. To have an aggregate, it starts to sound more like some form of endurance racing.Jenson Button, however, felt anything would be an improvement on the current format: Drivers driving round with one eye open is better than this one. And to the teams support aggregate qualy?Red Bulls Christian Horner, who rejected the proposition of a hybrid of the elimination system and 2015s, said: No one likes the current system, so this idea is a step in the right direction. It at least has elements of the 2015 system, which is what the teams prefer.Ferraris Maurizio Arrivabene claimed it doesnt sound that bad while Claire Williams said: It is quite a well thought through proposal that the FIA have come up with and hopefully it will be a solution that will work for everybody, and that will be be easy for our fans to understand.However, asked if aggregate times are a kick in the stomach for F1 purists, Mercedes Toto Wolff said: I think the kick is even lower than that. What happened with F1s last aggregate experiment?It was 11 years ago that F1 last aggregated two qualifying times to set the grid.After Michael Schumacher and Ferraris domination of the 2002 season, when the German won his third consecutive world title by July with a record six races to spare, F1s rulemakers introduced new measures to increase unpredictability in the sport - with changes to qualifying at the heart of them. Ted Kravitz interviews F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone on F1 Qualifying and other topics Between 2003 and 2005 various versions of single-lap qualifying were devised, with the latter year seeing an aggregate system adopted. Across two sessions - one on a Saturday afternoon followed by a second on Sunday morning - drivers would complete single flying laps, with their two times combined to determine their position on the grid.However, the new idea proved unpopular with fans and, with TV companies not carrying the Sunday session live, aggregate qualifying was binned after five races to be replaced by one single-lap session on Saturday. The three-part Q1, Q2 and Q3 knockout system was then introduced to more successful effect in 2006.Dont miss the F1 Report: Bahrain GP on Wednesday night at 8.30pm when The Times Kevin Eason and Ben Hunt of The Sun will join Natalie Pinkham to review events in the desert Every race live in 2016 Sky Sports F1 brings you every race live in 2016.

Renault have become the first F1 team to reveal their new car for 2016 at a glittering launch ceremony in Paris marking the groups return to F1 as a constructor outfit. Following Pastor Maldonados exit, Kevin Magnussen was confirmed as Jolyon Palmers team-mate, with Esteban Ocon appointed reserve driver, while Frederic Vasseur was presented as the teams new boss under the title of racing director. Bob Bell will take on the role of chief technical officer.Renault, who powered Red Bull and Toro Rosso last year, have returned to F1 as a fully-fledged team for the new season after buying back the Lotus outfit they sold in 2009. They will be known as the Renault Sport F1 team. The teams new car, the RS16, will be adorned in a predominately black livery with only flecks of yellow - which was Renaults traditional colour scheme during their previous stint as a full F1 team. The livery may change again before the season-starting Australian GP, however.I think we have learned that Renault are back as serious players and aim to compete for wins and championships in the medium term, commented Sky Sports News HQs Craig Slater.It was interesting that they debuted the new car rather than just a team launch. It is a wonderful looking piece, but not much in the way of evolution from last year. Magnussens appointment as Pastor Maldonados replacement caps a roller-coaster six months for the young Dane which started with Magnussen being told on his 23rd birthday he was being dropped by McLaren as their reserve driver but has now culminated in his own return to the grid. Magnussen was a race driver for McLaren in 2014 but was then ousted when Fernando Alonso returned to partner Jenson Button.Its not only a Formula 1 drive but its a top drive. Renault Sport will be fighting for world championships in the future, it might have a build-up phase, but theyre here to win and thats a goal I share, said Magnussen. Lotus finished sixth in the Constructors Championship last year but have warned they face a transitional season in 2016 as Renault reintegrate at the teams Enstone base.While the new livery was the most eye-catching feature of Wednesdays launch, the most significant change is likely to have occurred underneath the bodywork with Mercedes class-leading engine replaced by a Renaults own V6 unit. F1 gossip column Carmen Jorda still part of Renault team set-up We know when the team wins it is the car and when it loses it is the engine.

Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. Heavyweight titleholder Deontay Wilder has had one surgical procedure already on his broken right hand and will have another one on it -- as well as his torn right biceps -- probably later this week, trainer and co-manager Jay Deas told ESPN.com on Monday.Wilder broke his hand and tore his biceps in a dominant eighth-round knockout of Chris Arreola to retain his world title for the fourth time on July 16 in front of a home state crowd at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.Wilder suffered the injuries in the fourth round, during which he dropped Arreola and nearly knocked him out but then stopped using his right hand, his best weapon, for the rest of the fight.Deas said Wilder had a very minor surgery this past Tuesday in which the doctor inserted temporary pins his hand and lined up his bones to help speed up the time it takes for the severe swelling in the hand to go down.They secured his hand so the swelling will go down and when it has gone down sufficiently they can go in and correct what needs to be corrected in another surgery, Deas said.Deas said the tentative schedule is for Wilder to have hand surgery on Thursday or Friday. At the same time, the plan is also to have the needed surgery on his damaged biceps.We are trying to coordinate both surgeries at the same time so Deontay is not in a cast for three or four months while his hand heals and then needs to still get his biceps done after that, Deas said.dddddddddddd. Having them both at the same time is a way to cut down on the recovery time he needs.The blessing in disguise is that even though the hand surgery is much more complicated than the biceps surgery the biceps takes longer to heal. So Deontays hand will be well before his biceps, which will give his hand even more time to rest because he will have to wait for the biceps to be clear before he can use the hand. The hand will be better than it will have been in years.Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs), 30, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is almost surely out for the rest of 2016. This is at least the third time Wilder, a devastating puncher, has broken his right hand. After a first-round knockout of Travis Allen in 2009 (Wilders seventh professional fight), Wilder had right hand surgery during which pins were inserted to stabilize it. The shots he landed on Arreola were so powerful that he bent those pins.Wilder also suffered a stress fracture in the same spot during his world title victory against Bermane Stiverne in January 2015, although he did not require a second surgery.

It says much for the unrelenting nature of modern international cricket that, just as Stuart Broad reaches a milestone deserving of reflection and reward, he also embarks on a daunting new challenge.Success in India is one of the few holes in Broads record that will, from Wednesday, include 100 Test caps. Yes, he was a member of the squad that won here in 2012 but he didnt take a wicket in the series and was hampered by injury throughout. He has bowled well in the UAE, Australia (he was Englands best bowler in the 2013-14 Ashes), South Africa and, of course, England. But if he has anything to prove to anyone anywhere, it is surely in India.We have, perhaps, become somewhat inured to these 100-cap milestones. There have been so many of late with Broad following James Anderson, Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell to the landmark from the England team that made it to No. 1 in the Test rankings.But Cook tells an interesting story from the Barbados Test of 2015. Realising his Test career was over, Jonathan Trott asked to speak to the team at the end of the game. He had, he said, come to understand that the England cap was the best thing youll ever wear. The gap between his 49th and 50th caps - Brisbane 2013 to Antigua 2015 in his case - had been life-changing and had brought home to him the value of each and every one. It had reminded him how hard they were to earn, how some were soaked in champagne, others in tears and all of them in sweat. It had taught him that every one is precious and represented a terrific achievement. To have earned 100 can only be the reflection of an outstanding career.Broad becomes the 14th England player to reach the milestone but just the third seamer. Only Ian Botham and James Anderson have taken more Test wickets for England. The averages, strike-rates and economy-rates of all three are almost identical.And Broad is only 30. He aims, he says, to play in at least two more Ashes series - an aspiration that would take him up to the end of the 2019 English season - and retains hopes of regaining a place in the ODI side. He may well finish as Englands leading Test wicket-taker.His importance to England has rarely been greater. In the absence of Anderson, he is required to lead the attack in Rajkot which will involve not just striking with the new ball, but gaining reverse with the old. His use of cutters has improved immensely over recent years - not least the one that saw Asad Shafiq slice to point in the most recent Old Trafford Test - and he has, he says, benefited from a couple of weeks in the nets of late to rediscover his outswinger.The last time Broad played in a Test series here he was replaced by Steven Finn after the first two Tests. At the time, the tour management let it be known they were not overwhelmed with Broads efforts but, subsequently, it transpired he had lacerated the fat pad in his left heel ahead of the first Test. I probably shouldnt have played that series, he says now. I wasnt fit.Perhaps that is an instructive episode. For Broad, like other highly-talented players before him, has the ability when at his best to make cricket look easy. With his height and frame, he sometimes looks as if he was born to bowl. And, like David Gower or Chris Lewis, the downside of such obvious natural talent is that, when he is not at his best, he can look as if he is not trying quite as hard as he might be.Its an impression that is largely corrected when you see him at close quarters. When you see the toenails ripped off by the pounding of his feet in delivery, when you see him diving full length to stop balls in the field, when you hear stories of the quiet encouragement he has given to other players who have been struggling, you come to the conclusion that he is utterly committed to the welfare of the team but that, at times, his body or his rhythm or his technique dont allow him to produce his best form. Theres no lack of effort.Has he achieved absolutely every target we had for him? Certainly the batting, that once shone with so much promise, has fallen away to the stage where hopes that he can ever be considered a true allrounder have long since been abandoned. And, at times, he has struggled to maintain the pace or away movement that characterise his bowling at its best. The years of operating in a four-man attack - alongside Anderson he was the most-bowled seamer in international cricket for several years - probably took their toll.He has certainly produced great spells. Seven times he has taken five wickets in a spell and several of them (The Oval, Trent Bridge, Durham and The Wanderers) have helped wrap up big series.He picks out two as his own favourites: the 8 for 15 against Australia on his home ground of Trent Bridge in 2015 - its two-and-a-half days Ill remember with huge fondness, he says - and the 6 for 17 at The Wanderers in early 2016. That stands out, he says, in such a tough and aggressive atmosphere to play in.Anderson, writing in a Daily Mail column, suggested he had seen him bowl even better. He highlighted the 7 for 44 against New Zealand at Lords in 2013 - it was a brutal spell, Anderson said, he looked threatening every ball - and the 5 for 37 on a flat wicket at The Oval in 2009 as Broads best. The fact that there are so many to choose from rather underlines Broads value.We are unlikely to see such spells on this tour. The Rajkot pitch, while not as dry as those seen in Bangladesh, is already cracked and the relatively lush outfield - there are no recently used pitches on the square - will do nothing to help bowlers find reverse swing.While a couple of England batsmen poured water across concrete wickets before practising - a technique they use to replicate the ball skidding on - in case the seamers play more of a role than anticipated, it remains likely that Broad and co. will generally be used in a holding role. To that end, he will have to bowl many tight overs in hot conditions with little prospect of great reward. Broad, once the poster boy of English cricket, now has the most unglamorous job of all.Broad himself referred to it as without a doubt the biggest challenge of his career.We are coming as massive underdogs, theres no doubt about that, he said. Obviously India have got to No.1 in the world and played some brilliant cricket here so were very aware this is a huge challenge. This is a tough place to come and play.Well have to learn very quickly. It was quite a tough experience, losing ten wickets in that one session in Dhaka, and actually, confidence is a tricky one to know because weve not had any warm-up games here to test out in the middle.But also weve got nothing to fear, because not many of our side have actually played cricket over here.This is a chance to show what I can do. I think I only bowled 25 overs in the series the last time we were here. It was a frustrating period for me, but I feel in a pretty good place at the moment. I feel Ive been a bit more consistent in the English summer without taking a big haul. Ive felt really good in the nets and Im excited to get going.If Broad successfully pulls off his role in this series, it will represent an impressive maturation. Gone are the days when he thought of himself as the sides enforcer; gone are the days when he would go missing for a couple of games (since May 2013, he has a Test bowling average of 24.93; Andersons is 24.07 over the same period); gone are the days when he strutted and sulked his way through spells in trying conditions.As his pace has diminished, his need for control and skill has increased and he has developed into an intelligent, skillful bowler whom his captain can rely upon not just to be the star, but to get his hands dirty and do the supporting work. His has been an excellent career and there are several more chapters in his story to be told. Raven Greene Super Bowl Jersey. - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J.

Theyve got the best player in the NRL from this season (Jason Taumalolo), theyve got the best prop in Jesse Bromwich and theyve got Shaun Johnson who is electric on his day.New Zealand will be without experienced five-eighth Thomas Leuluai, who has a fractured jaw, but Cronk believes his Melbourne teammate Tohu Harris would be the perfect replacement if hes switched from the back row.Harris is in a battle for the position with Penrith youngster Te Maire Martin who made his debut from the bench against the Scots.Tohu has the ability to play in a different position and hes an elite player no matter what number he has on the back of his jersey, Cronk said.I also think they have some depth in their squad.

iamonds 2017 Netball Quad Series squad


FRISCO, Texas -- Ezekiel Elliott had star potential the moment he was drafted by the Cowboys, a high pick at running back with the benefit of perhaps the NFLs best offensive line.Dak Prescott figured to be in charge of the scout team as the No. 3 quarterback.Six weeks into the season, they have transformed from a Dallas novelty -- the first rookie quarterback-running combo to start the season for the Cowboys since Roger Staubach and Calvin Hill almost 50 years ago -- into a pair of record-setters.They also took the Cowboys (5-1) into the bye week on a five-game winning streak despite missing 10-year starter Tony Romo the whole time and star receiver Dez Bryant for half of it.I dont really look back too much other than the record, said Prescott, who ended up as the starter after backup Kellen Moore broke an ankle in training camp and Romo broke a bone in his back during a preseason game.Oh, and Prescott wasnt talking about Tom Bradys record, the one he topped by throwing 176 passes without an interception to start his career. New Englands four-time Super Bowl winner had the previous mark at 162 attempts.I like what the record says right now, the 23-year-old said. I like where were going with this team, the attitude, guys just looking around this locker room and how we interact with each other and having fun. Thats whats important to me.Regardless of the drama over who should start once Romo comes back from his fourth back injury in less than four years, Dallas figures to have found life after the 36-year-old with a growing history of injuries.I think were off to a good start, said quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, who spent more time with Prescott than anyone on the staff before Dallas took him in the fourth round. Hes certainly impressed. Theres a lot of football left to be played. I think that hes shown that he can handle it, on the field, off the field and nothings too big for him.Thats another theme that runs through these rookies -- their pedigree. Prescott is the winningest quarterback in Mississippi State history, and shares the distinction with Tim Tebow as the only SEC quarterbacks with at least 70 touchdowns passing and at least 40 rushing.Elliott is the second-leading rusher at Ohio State, and Dallas owner Jerry Jones watched him score four touchdowns on the Cowboys home field when the Buckeyes won the national championship in the 2014 season. The 21-year-old Elliott entered the bye leading the NFL with 703 yards rushing, and the fourth overall pick in the draft is the first rookie with four straight games of at least 130 yards.Together, Elliott and Prescott were the first rookies with 1,000 yards passing and 500 yards rushing in the first five games. Prescott has 1,486 yards passing with seven touchdowns and one interception.There is no question that Dak and Zeke, there is no question, theyre inspiring the rest of the team, Jones said. This game is a lot about that.Prescott said a bond with Elliott developed soon after the draft -- long before they were the emerging twin celebrities getting asked in detail about their plans for the bye (Prescott will be fishing with his family in Louisiana; Elliott wasnt very specific).Theyve been seen out together after flying home from road trips, family included at times . They enjoy clowning around in the locker room, and theyre roommates on the road.Hes a good roommate, Elliott said. He studies a lot of film. He watches a lot of `Americas Got Talent. He sits around with his headphones on his phone.Without Prescotts emergence, their friendship might be a footnote. With it, the Twitter memes are frequent.I think anytime you can come in with somebody, sometimes that gets overlooked, said tight end Jason Witten, who was drafted the year Romo signed as an undrafted free agent in 2003. That was something for Tony and I, at that time, to be able to go through life and chase your dreams. Thats a great feeling. And for them to be in the backfield like they are and having a chance to play early and have success, its great to see relationships like that.With Romos recovery continuing, Prescott is the likely starter when Dallas returns for a key NFC East game at home against Philadelphia on Oct. 30. If Prescott isnt the starter in three weeks, it appears he will be in three years.I feel like my teammates believe in me, he said. And thats whats important to me, my teammates and coaches believing in me, having trust in me to get the job done. I think Ive earned that for the most part.Along with a running back who was expected to be a longtime starter.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Kyle Juszczyk Super Bowl Jersey.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester Citys spine of goalkeeper Joe Hart, center back Vincent Kompany, midfielder Yaya Toure and striker Sergio Aguero has anchored the team since 2011 in the most decorated period in its history.One by one, it is being dismantled by Pep Guardiola.Hart has been sent out on loan to Italy.The injury-hampered Kompany no longer appears first choice.Toure has been ostracized.And the seemingly unthinkable is happening: Aguero is coming under pressure for his place.Aguero started on the bench for the English Premier League game against Everton on Saturday after playing two matches for Argentina during the international break. More surprisingly, he stayed among the substitutes for the Champions League match at Barcelona on Wednesday, when Guardiola preferred to play midfielder Kevin De Bruyne up front.Aguero has been untouchable, a guaranteed starter since joining from Atletico Madrid in July 2011. Suddenly, possibly the most popular player among City fans -- and a scorer of 102 league goals in his first five seasons at the club -- is vulnerable and seemingly dispensable, even if he is likely to regain his place for the Premier League match against Southampton on Sunday.When asked if Aguero was being phased out, Guardiola said on Friday the players future was at City.When Sergio decides to leave Manchester City, it will be his decision, Guardiola said. Then, echoing comments he made about Hart in August before allowing him to leave, Guardiola added: I appreciate him (as) a football player. I appreciate (as) a man what he did here.Its not just the recent selection decisions that hint at a sense of unease between Guardiola and Aguero.Guardiola has said publicly on at least two occasions this season that he wants more from Aguero than just goals, just like he wanted more from Hart than simply making saves. After Agueros hat trick in the Champions League win over Borussia Moenchengladbach, Guardiola said: I cannot teach him (about his talent in the penalty box) but he has to know that behind, the rest of the team wants to help him and that is what I want to convince him.While on international duty with Argentina this month, Aguero was quoted as telling Argentine media that Guardiola is very picky about everything, (and) its good.The good thing is that Im getting used to him and automatically going straight into pressing the centre backs.Aguero, who is contracted to City until 2020, has 11 goals in 10 appearances this season, and 19 in his last 20 dating to last season. There are few better, attainable strikers around and it will be intriguing to see how the situation pans out, especially with Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus due to arrive in December to provide competition up front.Guardiola said on Friday he had no regrets about his decision to drop Aguero for the Barcelona game, which City lost 4-0 after having goalkeeper Claudio Bravo red-carded. That made it four games without a win for Guardiola, and a failure to beat Southampton would equal the longest streak without a victory in his coaching career.In an answer that lasted more than 6 1/2 minutes on Friday, he defended his tactics at Camp Nou and praised the personality of his young players like John Stones and De Bruyne.Guardiola repeated he will not change his style.I think about that, yes, he said. But after that, the solution is not better than what I believe. So I cannot. Do you know why as well? Because in seven years (at Barcelona and Bayern Munich), I won 21 titles. ... So its three titles per year playing in that way.No, no, Im not going to change. First, its going to happen that (if) its not going well in the future, next season isnt going well in that way, I will go home. China Jerseys 2022.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The Australia Olympic Committee has laid down new stringent security protocols for its athletes that involve declaring Ipanema and Copacabana beaches out of bounds after nightfall.The decision comes soon after confirmation came from the United States Olympic Committee that four American swimmers, including six-time gold medalist Ryan Lochte, were held up at gunpoint early Sunday morning.Australia Olympic chiefs have already hit out at the levels of security in Rio, with an AOC spokesperson saying on Aug. 6: The host nation is responsible for the safety of the 10,500 athletes who are in Rio right now, and it is just not good enough.His comments followed two Australian rowing coaches being robbed on Ipanema Beach shortly after the opening ceremony.With a number of Australian athletes now enjoying well-deserved downtime after finishing their events, Kitty Chiller -- Australias chef du mission -- has spoken to the various team directors to refine their security protocols.Security is our primary concern for our athletes and team members, Chiller said. [Security director] Greg Nance met with our team directors and for those sports who have finished their competition, we have introduced further security protocols, especially for those traveling too the Ipanema and Copacabana area to ensure above all else we keep our team members safe.dddddddddddde reiterated our initial protocols, which is they should travel in groups of three. We have put now the actual sand on the Ipanema and Copacabana beaches off limits [from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.]. There has been an increase in petty criminal -- but still criminal -- activity on the beaches.If travelling at night after dark -- between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. -- that is only by vehicle, not by foot even if youre going 400 or 500 meters.The team managers are doing a great job, but we reiterated the importance of someone within the team knowing where the athletes are at any point in time.Chiller said another protocol was not to wear a team uniform when out on a recreational activity, while athletes have been advised to head out at night in the Barra neighborhood rather than going toward Ipanema or Copacabana.Swimmer Mitch Larkin, who won silver in the 200-meter backstroke, said it was a little disappointing that these security protocols were needed but said health and safety are the most important things in life and these guidelines are fantastic.
