As someone who has been with him for the last six years at Manchester City, played with him in World Cups and Copa Americas, Pablo Zabaleta would have a better idea than most how deep the wound is to Sergio Aguero's pride. "We played very well all game and of course we deserved to win because we tried to score goals since the first minute". "The gap (in performance) between the first and second half was too big".
Last-minute appeals this week by Netanyahu to postpone the vote until after he meets U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington on Feb 15, were refused by Jewish Home, political sources said.

James' comments have inspired trade speculation, a beef with TNT's Charles Barkley, and a team workout involving four free agents: guards Jordan Farmar , Mario Chalmers, and Kirk Hinrich, and Lance Stephenson. If he signs a 10-day contract, competently runs the offense and hits open 3-pointers, then he could wind up competing for a championship. That is why James said he would welcome anyone who could assist in that department.
Luckily, Deng whose family eventually settled in the United Kingdom after escaping Sudan as refugees, is from South Sudan. Deng is right.

But while Hull continued to threaten sporadically, Maguire working Courtois again with a thumping drive from 25 yards, as the first half wore on the home side began to tighten the screw.

Venus Williams is through to the quarterfinals after defeating Mona Barthel, 6-3, 7-5, on Sunday. Konta, who is yet to drop a set, had never played Wozniacki before, making for an interesting battle.

Kyle Shanahan is expected to become the 49ers' next head coach, NFL Media reported, citing unnamed sources familiar with both parties' intentions.

He accounted for 21 touchdowns as a junior but was injured for much of his senior season. Vance was a huge role in the turn around in Miami, the 'Fins went from 6-10 to 10-6 and made the playoffs. Like Joseph, Tomlin spent only one year as a coordinator, and as we've seen that hasn't precluded him from success as a head coach. The New York Jets signed Joseph as an undrafted free agent in 1995.
However, it was so cold in Pittsburgh during the AFC wildcard match-up between the Steelers and Miami Dolphins on Sunday (NZT Monday), one of the referee's whistles froze and stopped working.

The Steelers scored on their first three possessions, and Miami's playoff victory drought was well on its way to 17 years and counting.
He finished with a 19-30 record. But there will surely be some bigger names rumored to be attached to the position.

With a whole lot of fights that look awesome on paper, but haven't been signed and a women's featherweight title fight between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie headlining the Brooklyn event in February, which deserves a column of its own once the New Year rolls around.
Five weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers looked like anything but a playoff team and quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't on anyone's list of MVP candidates.

DE Adrian Clayborn (knee) will play against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday. One of the leading candidates is Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

The only thing set in stone for the NFC is that the Dallas Cowboys have won the NFC East and are the top seed and that the Seahawks have clinched the NFC West.
A Taylor deep incompletion left Dan Carpenter to try a 45 yard field goal. His first came in dramatic fashion considering his career-long 55-yarder allowed the Dolphins to force overtime. Moreover, the good thing is that the Bills have won 9-2 straight up in the previous 11 home encounters with Miami. He had his seventh 100-yard game of the year, most since Willis McGahee had seven in 2004, and also notched his 13 touchdown on a nifty 19-yard run.
Jenkinson joined West Ham United on a season long loan in 2014 and after a successful spell, extended his deal for another year.
