Wenger: Top Four Failure Won't Affect Arsenal Transfer Plans

Arsenal will realistically need to win that game and hope that Jurgen Klopp's men slip up against Middlesbrough to qualify for Europe's leading club competition, although a draw could be enough if Liverpool lose at Anfield.

Posting Up: Jeff McDonald on Tony Parker's injury and Spurs-Rockets


The Spurs big man dominated on both ends of the court, finishing with 26 points, seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks as San Antonio stole Game 3 from the Rockets in Houston. 2 point guard is less comforting. Parker had 18 points before the injury.

IPL: Rising Pune Supergiant thrash Kings XI to claim final play-off place


Pune is a very good side. Because of his batting and bowling, the RPS got the opportunity to play in the Qualifier 1. Mumbai have lost both games to their games to Pune this season so it may be at the back of their mind. But he also went and join up with the South Africa team. I think they were complaining that the wicket was a bit slow but when you play worldwide cricket so much, you should get used to playing on hard or good wickets. Read More »

Tottenham Hotspur 'family' will stick together next season: Harry Kane


Spurs have challenged for the title for two successive seasons and are primed to finish the current campaign strongly ahead of their two remaining fixtures against Leicester and Hull City.

Slaven Bilic's side now sit 12th in the Premier League table with a final-day fixture away to Burnley left to play. Read More »

Pablo Zabaleta given a heroic farewell by Manchester City

It was confirmed on Saturday that full-back Zabaleta will leave City at the end of this season after nine years at the club, with West Ham his likely destination.

Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town

And even despite the huge progress of Huddersfield , personally, I do not really believe in their exit to the Premier League.

With Spurs missing Kawhi Leonard, Warriors dismantle Spurs in Game 2


Leonard starting Game 3 on Saturday after a solid three days of rest would be a relief for San Antonio, but it's no guarantee that the shellacking they were laying on the Warriors in Game 1 will return. He is questionable for Game 3 . "I have no idea". The Warrior bench continued to pour it on, and the game ended with the Warriors just barely pulling out a narrow win: 136-100. Read More »
