• Under new rules a player’s country of origin has to be in world’s top 50
Rudy Austin’s agent has little hope of a successful appeal after Sheffield Wednesday’s bid to sign the midfielder was dashed by the Football Association’s new work permit rules.
The Jamaica international Austin, 30, was released by Leeds at the end of last season and Wednesday had appeared to have won the race for his signature.Continue reading...
It’s hard to say where Chelsea are at as a team right now. They lost 4-2 to the New York Red Bulls in a glorified training session that didn’t matter. They drew with Paris Saint-Germain in a glorified training session that didn’t matter. And on Tuesday night they drew with some rabble claiming to be the European champions Barcelona in a glorified training session that didn’t matter. Along the way, they scored some penalties. It’s all a bit meh, really, neither one thing nor the other. Though the mood will obviously lift on Sunday at the Community Shield once they’re 6-0 up against Arsenal after 14 minutes, which is what usually happens, isn’t it?

You have to feel sorry for those seeking coverage of the Ricoh British Women’s Open. And the sponsors themselves, in fact. As for every event on the female golf circuit, there is a battle to wrestle attention away from the men’s equivalent. This week’s major at Turnberry clashes with the ailing Tiger Woods and his latest appearance on the PGA Tour. It doesn’t take a golfing genius to determine which will command the greater share of attention, particularly if Woods toils yet again.
When the focus does turn to the women’s event, it is unlikely to be for the golf. The British Women’s Open is in danger of being overshadowed by Donald Trump’s travelling circus. Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican Presidential nomination, lives firmly by the mantra of no such thing as bad publicity, which is not the case in this instance.Continue reading...
• Balotelli managed just one goal in his first season at Liverpool
Promoted Bologna could offer Mario Balotelli the opportunity to rekindle his career in Serie A.
The 24-year-old scored just one Premier League goal in his first season at Liverpool and the Italy international’s position has been weakened by the £32.5m arrival of Christian Benteke from Aston Villa.Continue reading...
The Patriots quarterback is an all-time great but he’s starting to look as bad as the universally-loathed commissioner
Tom Brady is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in NFL history by any measure.
Four Super Bowl titles. Three Super Bowl MVPs. Two league MVPs. The most postseason wins in NFL history. Seven seasons with more than 4,000 yards. A 50-touchdown season. Even the supposed black marks on his career, 18-1 and losing twice in the Super Bowl to Eli Manning, are pretty impressive. When you laugh at someone for going 18-1 and winning two conference championships, you’re grasping at platinum-coated straws.Continue reading...
• 23-year-old will replace Toby Alderweireld in central defence

When it comes to feuds attack has always been the best form of defence for Chelsea’s manager but he has periodically crossed the line and has done so again with his personal attack on arguably his fiercest rival
José Mourinho cannot help himself. Where his footballing enemies are concerned, he can bite his lip only so much. And when he perceives that one of them – or indeed, one of their spouses – has sent some sort of slur in his direction, the fall-out tends to be explosive.Continue reading...
