Pep backs Aguero after ref incident: ‘I know the intention from Sergio’

soccer jerseys
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reiterated his defence of Sergio Aguero while the striker continues to receive widespread condemnation for putting his hands on female official Sian Massey-Ellis. Cameras caught Aguero placing his hands on assistant referee Massey-Ellis' shoulder during City's 1-0 win over Arsenal. The 32-year-old escaped punishment from the FA but Aguero has continued to receive criticism from pundits and former players for his actions. "All the people looking from outside judge. I know the intention from Sergio," Guardiola told a news conference on Friday ahead of the trip to West Ham. "Sergio put his hands in a normal way like he does many times to me, on or off the pitch or when I hug him, when there is a substitution or when sometimes he touches…

High-flying Leeds, Villa suggest this Premier League title race could be the best one ever

soccer jerseys
As Patrick Bamford curled in a stunning left-foot shot to seal a 19-minute hat-trick and put Leeds United 3-0 up against Aston Villa, the craziest season in Premier League history took another remarkable twist. The super clubs such as Liverpool and Manchester United wanted to carve up the Premier League landscape with their audacious, and failed, Project Big Picture plan, but Leeds are another of those famous old clubs who are biting back and showing that they are ready to fight every inch of the way to ensure that England's top-flight never becomes a closed shop to all but the biggest, richest and most powerful. If it continues like this, we are on course for the most open Premier League season for a quarter of a century, and Leeds are…

Dallas Cowboys DE Randy Gregory removed from commissioner’s exempt list, eligible to play Sunday

Dallas Cowboys DE Randy Gregory removed from commissioner’s exempt list, eligible to play Sunday

NFL JERSEYS
Dallas Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory will be available to play Sunday against the Washington Football Team now that he has been removed from the commissioner's exempt list. Gregory, who had been on the list since being reinstated by the NFL in September, has not played in a game since the 2018 divisional-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams because of an indefinite suspension. He has been able to work out and take part in meetings since reinstatement, and he began practicing two weeks ago. His return comes at a good time for a pass rush that has struggled for most of the season, and last week, teammates and coaches said Gregory performed exceptionally well in practice. Gregory, the Cowboys' 2015 second-round pick, had six sacks in 2018, which…

Timing a surprise, but Brian Flores sets up Tua Tagovailoa for success

Timing a surprise, but Brian Flores sets up Tua Tagovailoa for success

NFL JERSEYS
It's Tua Time in Miami, and the immediate question is why now? It was well known that 2020 first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa would eventually become the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback, but coming off back-to-back blowout wins does not seem like an ideal time to switch things up. Most would have been fine with Tagovailoa sitting for longer, or even all of the NFL season, and learning behind veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had been playing very good football through six weeks. But after taking a step back, this move makes a lot more sense. The way Dolphins coach Brian Flores has handled a difficult quarterback situation shows his plan will set Tagovailoa up for success, even if it isn't exactly how I would have mapped it. The timing of the…

Ruben Dias could fix Man City’s defensive woes despite being young for a central defender

Ruben Dias could fix Man City’s defensive woes despite being young for a central defender

soccer jerseys
As widely anticipated, Manchester City ended up signing centre-backs during the past transfer period. Nathan Ake was an addition to help with defensive depth; long after his arrival, most people still expected more in order to mitigate Pep Guardiola's well-documented defensive headaches. Yet in came 23-year-old Ruben Dias. Can the 68 million euro signing from Benfica successfully galvanise Manchester City's back four? Guardiola wasted no time in giving the Portuguese international his Premier League debut; just half a week after officially joining the club, Dias played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 away draw at Leeds United. He also played the full 90 on Saturday as Man City worked their way to a comfortable 1-0 win at home to Arsenal.nfl cheap nike jerseys Even with barely a dozen hours…

Rashford outdoes Neymar, Mbappe to star as Man United’s Paris hero again

soccer jerseys
It has been a while since Marcus Rashford was making headlines for his day job, but the Manchester United forward likes nothing more than a late goal in Paris to remind people of what made him famous in the first place: his ability on a football pitch. It was deja vu all over again on Tuesday as his side claimed a 2-1 win against Paris Saint-Germain on matchday 1 of this season's Champions League group stage. For the second time in three seasons, Rashford secured victory in the French capital by netting a late winner in the Parc des Princes. In March 2019, a stoppage-time penalty sealed a 3-1 round-of-16 win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team; on Tuesday, at the same end of the same stadium, the 22-year-old struck a…

Relieved Tampa Bay Rays enjoy earning AL pennant in MLB’s strange, tough 2020 season

MLB JERSEYS
Three days of rising anxiety turned into one night of euphoria for the Tampa Bay Rays, who became the new American League champions on Saturday night after finally dispatching the Houston Astros in seven games with a 4-2 victory to advance to the World Series in the MLB playoffs. "The last three days were pretty agonizing," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We definitely added to our stress levels. That's a really good team over there. I would have rather gotten it done in Game 4 or 5 than in Game 7." There might be more than 2,000 aeronautical miles between Petco Park and the Rays' home at Tropicana Field, where this game would have taken place under normal circumstances, but that did little to diminish the manner in which they…

Kevin Stefanski: If healthy, Baker Mayfield is Browns starter

NFL JERSEYS
Cleveland Browns coach Kevin Stefanski made it clear despite a 38-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers that Baker Mayfield remains his starting quarterback, assuming he's healthy. Battling a rib injury that limited him in practice all week, Mayfield struggled Sunday, throwing a pick-six on Cleveland's third offensive snap, setting the tone for the Pittsburgh rout. Taking multiple big shots from the Steelers, Mayfield was especially inefficient on third down and while facing the blitz. On third downs, he went just 2-of-7 passing for 5 yards with a sack and two picks; when facing the blitz, Mayfield completed 2 of 6 passes for only 11 yards with an interception and three sacks.nfl nike jerseys cheap china Stefanski finally replaced Mayfield late in the third quarter with backup Case Keenum, but attributed…
