perth_map

Having helped United reach three Champions League finals and a semi-final, Carrick would love to go into retirement having helped the club re-establish itself as a European force, starting with a win over Sevilla tonight, which would put them in the last eight for only the second time in seven seasons.

Kirk Cousins to Sign Mega Deal with Minnesota Vikings

perth_map

By signing a fully guaranteed contract, Cousins has all the power. During that time, he's ranked fourth in passing yards , sixth in passer rating, seventh in Total QBR and eighth in touchdown passes. With the announcement of Alex Smith being traded to the Washington Redskins , Cousins' years in Washington effectively came to an end. The team has the salary cap space to make him the NFL's highest-paid quarterback, and they are a clear Super Bowl contender after reaching the NFC ... Read More »

Serge Aurier thrilled with goal in Tottenham Hotspur's win vs. Bournemouth

perth_map

Vertonghen, however, used Barcelona as an example of how a side can enjoy success while still playing in a positive manner. "We could have played with five or six at the back, but that is not how we are. You can speak about it in both ways. It was Pochettino's 150th league win as a manager but a rare recent defeat for his counterpart Eddie Howe , whose side had been beaten just once in their past 10 league fixtures - only Tottenham losing fewer in that period.

Man Utd boss Mourinho blasts de Boer over Rashford remarks

perth_map

I reckon he would have got a penalty, but that is not the way Klopp has his players thinking. He told his pre-match press conference: "It's the biggest game I can imagine. If we win, only one ahead, it's not a big difference. "It is our job to focus on ourselves and play how we hope to beat them". However, the English centre-back came out on top using his sheer physical strength in this duel, as he not only cleared the ball out of play, but also slammed the Egyptian speedster straight to ...

Teddy Bridgewater signs with New York Jets

perth_map

Whether or not this means the Jets do not draft a quarterback sixth overall is yet to be seen. That prospect of rebuilding could have been the main reason as to why he chose the Vikings over the Jets. There might not be a better marriage between rising team and player than Teddy Bridgewater and the New York Jets . Along with his injury history, the Jets should look for insurance options if Bridgewater struggles or he runs into health concerns. Read More »

Packers beat out Saints, Redskins for Muhammad Wilkerson

perth_map

Wilkerson is clearly betting on himself to rehab his value around the league by playing for a year under Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, his coach in NY for the first two seasons of his NFL career. One can assume new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine had a say in this signing. The bigger positions of need are at cornerback and outside linebacker. Read More »

perth_map

Hunter appeared in all 33 games for Virginia this season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists en route to winning the ACC's Sixth Man of the Year award.

Warriors announce that Stephen Curry is out least the next four games

However, Golden Stat has had to make due playing without its superstar the past couple games due to an ankle injury. - Karl-Anthony Towns helped Minnesota stop a season-longest three-game losing streak with 31 points and 16 rebounds, and the Timberwolves powered their way past Golden State down the stretch for a 109-103 victory on Sunday to hand the Warriors their second straight defeat without Stephen Curry .

Tottenham striker Harry Kane reportedly ruled out until May with ankle injury

perth_map

Kane injured his right ankle - the third time he's injured the same ankle in a year - in the 24th minute of Tottenham's 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday. That would mean Kane would return for the final few games of Spurs' Premier League season and would have only a few matches to build his fitness ahead of England's World Cup run in Russian Federation this summer.

Brent Celek Released by Eagles, Will Enter Free Agency

perth_map

Celek has certainly been durable, missing just one game over his last 11 years, something that should mitigate concerns about his age. Celek was the longest tenured player on the Eagles, who cleared $4 million from their salary cap with the move. Read More »

Djokovic suffers 'weird' loss to qualifier at Indian Wells

perth_map

It was another snag in the return for the 30-year-old Djokovic who admitted he was out of sorts while playing in just his second event of 2018. Israeli Dudi Sela beat British 21st-seeded Briton Kyle Edmund 6-4 6-4 while Luxemburg's 24th seed Giles Muller was upset by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-3 7-5. Read More »

Smart out indefinitely with torn thumb tendon

perth_map

Theis and Smart were both hurt in Sunday's game, with Smart's injury occurring when he dove to the floor. Most of Baldwin's time on the court in 2017-18 has been spent with the Texas Legends of the G League, where he has appeared in 33 contests while averaging 18.2 points, 5.1 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 steals over 33.8 minutes per game.

Buffalo Bills reportedly trade OT Cordy Glenn to Cincinnati Bengals

perth_map

Using a conventional draft trade value chart, the Bills could package the Bengals' first-round pick and the No. 22 selection (acquired past year from Kansas City) to move as high as No. 22 overall picks in the draft and sets the team up for even more action while seeking a quarterback. On a day in which many were focused on National Football League free agency tampering beginning, the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals were hard at work in building their own futures. Read More »

Eagles To Sign DT Haloti Ngata

perth_map

Joe Douglas, the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, is familiar with Ngata from their time together with the Baltimore Ravens . He is projected to replace Beau Allen , who was part of the backup rotation on the line last season. Ngata played 32 games for Detroit, making 53 tackles with six sacks. In January, Ngata told 97.1 FM in Detroit that he wanted to play in 2018. Needless to say, that production was a far cry from what the Ravens were used to when Ngata racked up five Pro ...

QB Case Keenum intends to sign with Broncos, sources say

perth_map

The Broncos have officially taken themselves out of the run for Kirk Cousins , opening up other quarterback-needy teams such as the New York Jets , Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings to step up to the plate. The 30-year-old will look to help steer the Broncos to a bounce-back season after they went 5-11 in 2017. Keenum will have similar talent at receiver with the Broncos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders . Read More »

Marcus Rashford insists Jose Mourinho doesn't need to explain prolonged absence

perth_map

He had seven matches, seven defeats [sic], zero goals . Alexis Sanchez's arrival has certainly hurt Rashford's chances of making the line-up more often but Mourinho is definitely trying to force him in at any opportunity. "In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that's what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don't react as well in other games".

Sam Bradford set to sign for Arizona Cardinals

perth_map

Unfortunately, the now-veteran signal-caller has been unable to play an entire season since. He threw for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings' season opener before leaving the team's Week 2 game with a knee injury. Bradford healthy for 16 games could inject some serious life into the Cardinals passing game, and with Larry Fitzgerald still in the desert, they'll have a true No. Read More »

Colts Among Finalists to Sign Guard Andrew Norwell

perth_map

A potentially far more cost-effective offensive line option, Hubbard earned a 69.6 Pro Football Focus grade ("below average") a year ago. He could become the league's highest paid at the position. Not only that, but the Jaguars did have the best rushing offense in the league last season. They averaged 4.1 yards per carry (18th) and 103.9 yards rushing per game (21st). Read More »

Bears to sign Super Bowl hero Trey Burton

perth_map

He's 26 years old, so the Bears are getting a young player just entering his prime. In his second season in Jacksonville in 2015, Robinson caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards, and an NFL-leading 14 touchdowns. But the Bears want Burton for his receiving ability, not his passing ability. Now, the question will be whether he can turn his flashes of potential with the Eagles into something more substantial on a weekly basis. Read More »

Danny Woodhead Reportedly Released by Ravens After 1 Season with Team

perth_map

The rest of the starting right tackle candidates on the Ravens roster, a group that includes 2017 fifth-round pick Jermaine Eluemunor and Andrew Donnal, a waiver acquisition last November, are young and unproven. He didn't return until November 19. Woodhead has played in only 10 games over the last two seasons. Like Woodhead, Howard is gone after one season with Baltimore. Read More »

First Four 2018: Aaron Holiday needs to shine vs St. Bonaventure

perth_map

Bonaventure beating UCLA wouldn't be the biggest upset we've ever seen by any means, but it can happen simply on the fact that they're the kind of team that could get overlooked. He got the Blackbirds to the NCAA Tournament in his first season and will be playing in an arena that was a regular A-10 stop during his nine seasons with UMass. Read More »

Griezmann among goals again as Atletico ease past Celta

Atletico remain eight points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona , with their title hopes having taken a serious blow with last weekend's 1-0 defeat at the Camp Nou.

Star Lotulelei signs with Bills

perth_map

Star Lotulelei has found himself a new home on the free agent market, and the Buffalo Bills have won the chance to sign him despite several other interested parties, per reports. In five seasons with the Panthers, Lotulelei established himself as a consistent force at the nose tackle position. His future in Carolina was uncertain after the Panthers signed defensive tackle Kawann Short to a five-year, $80 million contract extension last off-season, and also used a first-round pick to draft ...

Paul Pogba included in Manchester United's Champions League squad to face Sevilla

perth_map

Sevilla's only dalliance with the European Cup quarterfinals came in 1958 and Montella is hoping to make history at Old Trafford, having put in a promising display as the first leg ended 0-0. "I remember at the beginning when I was taking him as an extra player, in the meetings, in the dressing room at half-time eating every word, listening to everything", Mourinho told reporters.
