Pochettino questions players' desire following defeat at Liverpool

After a hard loss to Liverpool last Saturday at Anfield, Mauricio Pochettino has to get his squad's mindset back on track when they face Gent tomorrow in the Europa League's first leg in the Round of 32.

COSAFA chief Chiyangwa dares CAF boss Hayatou over planned meeting

Ahmad, now the head of Madagascar's FA, had already outlined his intention to challenge long-standing Caf leader Hayatou in March's elections in Ethiopia. Adding intrigue, drama, thriller and even suspense into the whole football shenanigan, Chiyangwa has slated a lavish party next Friday in Harare in which FIFA boss Gianni Infantino is the guest speaker, coincidentally the same weekend Mugabe would be eating cake as he turns 93 despite abject poverty in the nation.

What the Serge Ibaka Trade Means for the Magic and Raptors

Serge Ibaka0 reported that Ibaka should have a significant positive impact for the rest of the season, increasing Toronto's projected win total from 48.4 to 49.3 games and giving them an edge over the Washington Wizards for the No. Ross, on the other hand, is the more interesting player in the deal. He made the Raptors a better team, he's still only 26 years and he's old under contract at a convenient price for the next few years. Read More

Bray Wyatt, a deserving WWE World Heavyweight Champion

Bray Wyatt, a deserving WWE World Heavyweight Champion

Ambrose walks up and he's still looking for Corbin. Corbin then slammed Dean Ambrose onto the table as the lighting went out. Seriously though, this feud should be a lot of fun and a way to get Corbin his first title run. So when I tell you that I knew this day would come, I am not telling you a lie. "And if we don't get our rematch by then, you could either give me the title, or, or I could "snatch" your dignity by beating you up and down this ring and take back my title". Read More

Duke Cuts Cavs Down In Charlottesville

Carmelo Anthony reportedly will replace Kevin Love in All-Star Game

He reportedly intends to be very selective in his potential destinations, and Jackson seems eager to make Anthony want to leave. Love is slated to miss the next six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday. Joel Embiid also has a deserving case, but he is injured and already pulled out of the Rising Stars and Skills Challenges. So while Anthony was ultimately the player chosen to go to New Orleans, it's safe to say other players have gripes, too. Read More

It was a different, sorry story for the visitors after the break, as a Thiago Alcantara brace, Robert Lewandowski's header and Thomas Muller's late strike earned Bayern a commanding lead going into the second leg at Emirates Stadium next month, although they will be without Philipp Lahm after the captain was booked late in the second half.

Three tactical tweaks Pochettino must make for Gent

Yet, with a top four place far from assured, Europe's secondary competition is hardly going to be a priority for Pochettino - instead he'll focus on securing a top four berth for the second successive season. "That's my motivation. I can't sit around, I have to focus on each week as it comes, then focus on pushing and pushing again". While Jose Mourinho is another manager likely to make changes, he has said he'll stick with the back four which impressed him against Watford at the weekend - ... Read More

Ryan Clady to become free agent as Jets decline his option

Clady was due $10 million next season, making his return to NY under that contract unlikely. It was yet another debilitating injury for Clady, who missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL during the offseason. The Jets could re-sign Ijalana, but also opt to re-sign Clady in free agency, but at a much lower salary. The loss of Clady creates an opening at left tackle for the Jets. Read More

Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic Agree to a Serge Ibaka Trade

The Raptors' long-term future was a question mark before they made this trade and, so far as how they'll contend for a championship after the 30-year-old Lowry starts to decline, that skepticism remains. Boston (36-19) has won 10 of its last 11 games and now trail Cleveland (37-16) by 2.0 games for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors found a weakness in their team, and addressed it. Read More

Joe Root: New England captain to seek advice of former skippers

He has previously captained Yorkshire for four first-class matches, but has served as England's vice-captain for the past 18 months. It has seemingly been Root's destiny to captain his country.
