nthony Knockaert had been bare-chested out in the stand at the Amex Stadium, conducting the mass of Dolphins Authentic Jersey delighted blue and white on the pitch below with microphone in hand as he has so much of Brighton & Hove Albion’s attacking play all season. There would be crowd surfing on a packed Southern Rail train service from Falmer to the city centre, and more celebrations in The Lanes before the night was out. Yet in between there was a moment for more sombre reflection.The white T-shirt the Championship’s player of the year had put on back in the tunnel, just before his team-mates emptied a barrel of iced water over Chris Hughton, told its http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/adam-joseph-duhe-jersey-for-sale-c-5.html own story. It sported a photograph of Patrick Knockaert with his son and the message: “To Daddy. We did it for you. RIP.” The Frenchman said: “I’m thinking a lot about my dad. He’s been amazing in my life, the main man, and I wish he was here today with me to see all this and celebrate. But that is life. Every day I work so hard for him and if things go right for me, it’s because he gives me the power to fight. Because of what happened I have an even bigger desire to work hard and show he was believing in me. I do it all for him.”Patrick passed away in his son’s arms in November after a lengthy illness. He was 63. His death came only seven years after Anthony’s older brother, Steve, a talented footballer in his own right, had died in his sleep after a heart attack. It had been Knockaert Sr who made the difficult telephone call to Anthony, then 17 and fresh from his first senior game for Guingamp, to Phillies Youth Jersey tell him of the family’s sudden and unexpected loss. That, if anything, had served to strengthen the bond with his father, meaning the tragic events towards the end of last year had left the Brighton player bereft. It had been the support of his team-mates which carried him through.Steve Sidwell dedicated a goal scored at Bristol City to his grieving team-mate, with Hughton subsequently cancelling training to travel to Leers, on the outskirts of Lille, so he and members of the squad could attend the funeral. It is as if a very personal tragedy became another source of motivation for the collective thereafter. “I’ve told my team-mates: ‘If I was playing for any other club in the world, I don’t think they would have done that for me,’” Knockaert said. “Them coming all the way from England to France to come to my dad’s funeral was something I’ll never forget, and I still don’t know even now how to thank them.“Now, for me, they are not just team-mates but friends for ever. I owe this football club a lot. That’s why I give every single bit of my life on the pitch and they deserve it because this club is something special.”Knockaert’s first thought after achieving promotion to the top flight with Leicester City in 2014 had been of his brother and wanting to “make him happy”. This time round, with family in the stand as almost 30,000 Brighton supporters celebrated with gusto, his dedications were for his absent father.He has merited his return to the elite. Knockaert had spent three eventful years at Leicester, carrying away the club’s young player of the year award in his first season but infamously seeing a last-minute penalty saved by Manuel Almunia, as well as his follow-up, against Watford in the play-off semi-finals with http://www.authenticphillieshop.com/authentic-27-aaron-nola-jersey.html the home side duly sprinting upfield to score and book their own place at Wembley. He had recovered his poise to play a part in a successful promotion campaign under Nigel Pearson the following year, only to be denied an opportunity to make his mark at the higher level. There were only nine Premier League appearances in 2014-15, with three starts and no game-time at all after mid-January.He watched his team-mates stage their remarkable escape from the drop from afar as frustration at non-involvement mounted. A player whose exclusion had reduced him to tears in meetings with Pearson ended up rejecting a four-year contract to stay at the King Power Stadium, with Knockaert instead moving to Standard Liège under the Bosman ruling. “He’d been a player we’d followed for a while and he wasn’t settled in Liège and clearly wanted to come back to England,” said the Brighton owner, Tony Bloom, who would pay in the region of £2m to secure the playmaker midway through last season. “We knew how brilliantly he’d done at Leicester and over the last 18 months it’s been a pleasure watching him. He scores goals, creates goals and has that x-factor.”Knockaert said: “I am never going to regret the choices I made because I wasn’t playing too much in the Premier League with Leicester and it was time for me to go somewhere else and try something else. I always believed in my quality and, when I had the chance to come to this club, I knew the ambition they had. It was an easy decision to Heat Womens Jersey take and now it looks like a perfect decision.”Last year proved a near miss but offered an opportunity to showcase his talent. Brighton resisted bids over the summer, not least from Newcastle United, and the 25-year-old has proved integral to this team’s approach this season. There have been 15 goals and a string of assists, at set pieces and open play, courtesy of that delicious left-footed delivery. An improved contract and a proper opportunity in the Premier League surely await.“We need to enjoy this and we’ll see what happens next year but I don’t think it’s the moment to talk about the Premier League now,” he said. “We are one win away from the title, which would be amazing because everyone in England was expecting Newcastle to be champions this season. We have a long time before that. We will prepare as much as we can to stay up because it’s their first time for this club to go into the Premier League, and I’m over the moon for all the people involved because they deserve it a lot. For me it’s a family club. If there is one club that deserves it over the last two years it was Brighton.”
John Terry will seek to extend his Nuggets Jersey career in the Premier League next season after Chelsea announced they would not be renewing their captain’s contract at Stamford Bridge, severing a 22-year association with the club.Terry, who joined Chelsea’s youth ranks at 14, has played only 366 minutes in the Premier League under Antonio Conte this season after signing his latest one-year contract extension last May. Club and player released a joint statement on Monday confirming the long anticipated parting of the ways though the former England defender, who has considered moves to clubs in China, the US and the Gulf in the recent past, has not ruled out moving to another English club next season.There were tentative inquiries fielded from up to 10 top-flight teams in January, by which point it was clear the 36?year?old was peripheral to Conte’s plans, with Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City making their interest particularly clear. Terry, who has made 713 first-team appearances for the club since his debut in 1998, scored 66 goals and captained the team a record 578 times, had previously suggested he would not play for a rival English team, though that stance appears to have softened.“After 22 years there is so much to say and so many people to thank at this great football club,” he said. “From coaches, team-mates and staff to the fans who have given me so much support down the http://www.authenticnuggetstore.com years, I can’t thank you enough. There will be opportunities for me to speak further about this over the coming weeks.“I will decide on my future in due course but for now I am committed to helping the team achieve success this season. The club and I have always had a fantastic relationship, which will continue beyond my playing days. We had some really positive talks but, with everything taken into careful consideration, I have decided it’s the right time for me to leave.”The club have encouraged Terry to undertake his coaching badges and are believed to have explored the possibility of retaining him in a non-playing capacity, perhaps with coaching or ambassadorial responsibilities. Yet the defender’s desire to carry on playing – as, indeed, Conte has encouraged him publicly to do – appears to have influenced the joint decision to part ways.“Everyone Bucks Jersey at Chelsea would like to place on record our thanks to John for all he has done for this club,” the director Marina Granovskaia said. “He has been an outstanding player, inspirational captain and has always demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the cause. In that time Chelsea has grown into one of the world’s top clubs and it is only right that John’s contribution is recognised. He will always be held in the highest regard by everybody at Stamford Bridge and we look forward to welcoming him back in the future.”Terry, capped 78 times, will hope to lift the Premier League trophy for a fifth time in the coming weeks and has five FA Cups, three League Cups, as well as Champions League and Europa League winners’ medals from his glittering career. “I’ve always been conscious that I depart at the right time, in the right way, and I feel that the end of this season is the right time for the club and me. “I feel I still have plenty to offer on the pitch but understand that opportunities here at Chelsea will be limited for me.“I’m eager to carry on playing and so will be looking to continue with a new challenge. I will of course always be a Blue and am desperate to end my final season as a Chelsea player with more silverware.”An excellent all-round performance from Manchester United gave them http://www.officialbuckstore.com/Chris_Copeland_Jersey a comfortable win over the league leaders; they move back into fifth, while Chelsea stay four points ahead of Spurs at the top
One by one they got up, the pile of bodies peeling away a player at a time until there were only Braden Holtby Jersey two remaining and the Atlético Madrid captain, Gabi Fernández, lifted Diego Godín to his feet, then left him there. Taking a step back as if dizzy, the man who had laid at the bottom pulled his shirt to his mouth before heading to the centre where cameras catch a lost, stunned look, like he can’t take it in. Stop the tape and you can see the moment he tries to snap himself out of it. It was the final day of the 2013-2014 season and it was actually happening – if they could hang on for 40 minutes more.“We were losing at the Camp Nou against Barcelona, and the league was slipping away – a league we’d fought so hard for, over 38 games. It had taken so much from us, and you knew that in one game all that work could be gone. We were losing, Diego Costa had got injured, Arda Turan had got injured, and everything was uphill,” Godín recalls. All year, people had said Atlético Madrid would fall away and, he admits, they “fed” on that, rebelling, but now they were falling at the last. And then, he scored the biggest goal in their history to ultimately earn a 1-1 draw, and the title.“We knew it was back in our hands and there was a relief; you feel your body filling again,” he says. “At the end, you let go: all the happiness and tension. There had been a huge buildup of emotion all year, it had been hard, intense, and for that goal to have give us the title was incredible.”That is one word for it. Diego http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-10-brett-connolly-jersey.html Simeone, the coach, had called it “impossible”, thus proving that nothing is. When Atlético became La Liga champions, he took the microphone during celebrations, a quarter of a million people on the Madrid streets, and made it a lesson in life. “This is not just a league,” he said, “what this triumph transmits is much more than that: if you believe and work, you can do it.” There had been applause from the Camp Nou. Although Barcelona had been defeated, it was something to recognise and be thankful for – almost as if this was everyone’s title.Two years later, it happened again. Sitting in the stands at Atlético’s Cerro de Espino training ground, 20km northwest of Madrid, Godín says: “I was really pleased and I think the immense majority of football lovers, fans everywhere, would have felt the same way. To see a small, modest team built on hard work, where the players are so close, so together, win week after week, stay up there and play so well, when they’re so consistent and they win the league, that makes people take them to their hearts.”He is not talking about Atlético, although he could be; he is talking about Leicester City. “Personally, I think it’s wonderful,” Godín says. “I’m sure lots of people would have fallen in love with Leicester a bit. It makes you happy things like that can happen in football.”Godín, a fan who admits Cory Harkey Jersey to being enamoured with the game, an obsessive watching endless matches, did not just enjoy Leicester winning the league; he identified with it. One of the recurring themes of this quarter-final is the sense that these teams share something. Atlético Madrid did a Leicester before Leicester did. There was even a parallel with their last goal before being Champions, two centre-backs scoring at the biggest ground in the country: Wes Morgan at Old Trafford, Diego Godín at the Camp Nou.True, Atlético’s title was their 10th, not the first, but it really might have been the most impressive in Spanish history. It was never a target, Godín admits, and it wasn’t until they beat Athletic Bilbao in late March that Simeone even thought it possible, although Godín places it a sooner, saying: “we started to believe around February”. And even then, a last minute save from Málaga’s Willy Caballero denied them on the penultimate weekend, obliging them to go to the Camp Nou and take the title from Barcelona. Granada have been in the relegation zone for 27 weeks. This has been likely right from the start: they were built this way. Those chants were not new, even if more common than chants is indifference, resignation. When it came to singling out guilty parties, only Sergi Vieta, the director general, was named. They had come prepared: a banner at one end demanded: “Directiva, dimisión!”. Directors, resign! Others Cory Harkey Jersey were handily translated into Chinese, so the club’s owners could understand. One fan held a message aimed for the players: “We can’t ask you to love the badge, only to justify your salary (you have seven chances left).” Make that six. And while it’s a facile accusation, all too easily applied – “players, mercenaries!” got another outing here – it is understandable.
Townsend forcing himself back into England reckoning Marcus Rashford offers Manchester United Dolphins Jersey a brighter, faster future
Barney Ronay at Old Trafford The focus so often fixes upon Wilfried Zaha at Crystal Palace but over their seven-game revival under Sam Allardyce, they have posed as much threat from the opposite flank. Andros Townsend had rather grumbled through his first seven months at Selhurst Park, unhappy to be operating from the left and only offering flashes of his quality. The past seven weeks have been more reflective of a winger with 13 England caps. “Against Arsenal, Andros shut down three Arsenal players on his own, one after the other,” Allardyce said. “He ran from the right side to the left, almost got a block, and the crowd cheered him for the effort. That’s how he’s changed his attitude, to believing in himself and performing to his very best. And that’s out of possession. In it, he’s running at defenders. He believes he can beat them inside, outside.” He, as much as anyone, has contributed to this team’s revival. England may not be finished with him just yet. Dominic FifieldMatch report: Crystal Palace 2-2 Leicester City Lukaku and Barkley have much to thank Koeman for
Whether it is the pursuit of http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com Champions League football or more money that explains the reluctance of Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley to sign new contracts – both have told Ronald Koeman it is the former – there should be an acceptance on their part of the Everton manager’s influence on their development this season. Both have reaped the rewards of Koeman constructing a team around their respective strengths. Lukaku struck his 24th league goal of the season to secure Everton’s eighth successive home win, against Burnley. Barkley has also improved since being given licence to roam across the front line. “He will learn with each season,” Koeman said of the midfielder. “He’s a local boy and the local boy will have more critics than any other player in the team most of the time. That’s sometimes difficult for him. He’s even had criticism from his manager. That’s football.” Andy Hunter Match report: Everton 3-1 Burnley Resurgent Young has rescued his Manchester United future As Manchester United’s senior player, Ashley Young captained the side in Sunday’s impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford. Young is 32 in July and had appeared to be heading for an exit from the club he joined six years ago. Yet since coming close to a January departure (or February, to China), Young is resurgent as either a full-back or attacking option and has become one of José Mourinho’s most trusted soldiers. The manager made Young the final player he took off against Antonio Conte’s would-be-champions and the former Watford man wandered off to a standing ovation from the crowd that was richly deserved. The player’s contract Dennis Schroder Authentic Jersey runs until the summer of 2018 with the option of a further 12 months, and he appears to have caused a rethink from Mourinho. It now seems likely Young will stay for two more years rather than move on any time soon.Jamie Jackson Facebook Twitter Pinterest Manchester City’s Yaya Touré challenges Dusan Tadic of Southampton. Photograph: Stefan Wermuth/Reuters Manchester City ultimately blew Southampton away and, on this evidence, they are hitting form at just the right time. Next up is an FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal and despite Pep Guardiola’s oddly timed comments, again criticising his team’s mental strength, in Arsène Wenger’s side they face a team who by comparison are on the floor. Yaya Touré, for one, wants to exploit their opponents’ lack of belief, which even a positive result at Middlesbrough on Monday night would not fully repair. Touré said: “We want to go through in this competition. We know Arsenal have been in trouble before the international break, and after that they created us a lot of problems.” That http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Dikembe_Mutombo_Jersey day, at the start of this month, Arsenal rallied for a 2-2 draw. “This time there is not going to be a draw,” Touré said. “The one winner will go the final and we hope it’s going to be City.” Ben Fisher Match report: Southampton 0-3 Manchester CityThe Dozen: the weekend’s best Premier League photos Shaqiri holds the key to unlock Stoke’s potential Marco Silva claimed that Stoke City’s superior finishing was the only difference between the sides, and Harry Maguire had a point too when he suggested Hull created more chances. Yet Stoke’s finishing was not as clinical as all that. Jon Walters hit the bar, Marko Arnautovic could have had a hat-trick by half-time, and the home side should have put the game to bed long before Xherdan Shaqiri’s exquisite clincher. Watching Shaqiri and Arnautovic at work in the first half it was impossible to believe Stoke had been sliding towards the relegation zone or that Peter Crouch and Walters would be required to come to the rescue after the interval. Stoke could do with more impact from the still goalless Saido Berahino, but most of all they could do with Shaqiri staying fit. The Swiss has played in fewer than half his side’s league games this season: without him Stoke lack a fulcrum.
Attacked in a bar, vilified by a reviled columnist and embraced by his boyhood club – Ross Barkley will Emmanuel Mudiay Jersey not forget the past week in a hurry. The Everton midfielder responded to a traumatic period with an influential show against Burnley as Ronald Koeman’s team climbed to fifth with an eighth consecutive home win. Goodison Park, if he did not realise it before, is Barkley’s sanctuary.There was a standing ovation for the England international when he left the pitch in the final minute and pointedly, amid doubts over his future at the club, Barkley responded in kind. The 23-year-old absorbed the celebrations on the Gwladys Street after striking a decisive second goal against Sean Dyche’s unfortunate side – credited to Ben Mee after a deflection off the Burnley defender – and pointed to all four sides of http://www.authenticnuggetstore.com/Emmanuel_Mudiay_Jersey the ground, other hand on crest, while being booked for standing on the advertising hoardings as he did so. Phil Jagielka, with his third goal in three games, and Romelu Lukaku, with his 24th league goal of the season, sandwiched Barkley’s intervention.Everton join Liverpool in banning Sun journalists over coverage Lukaku struck for the ninth successive game at Goodison – equalling a feat last achieved by the legendary William Ralph “Dixie” Dean in 1934 – but this was Barkley’s day. Along with everyone else in royal blue, he made a subdued start against Burnley. Ultimately, however, this was a resilient response to a week in which he was punched in a city centre bar and the subject of a disgraceful column by Kelvin MacKenzie that resulted in Everton following Liverpool’s lead and banning The Sun newspaper. MacKenzie’s slurs were forgotten as Everton and Burnley marked the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster with a minute’s applause before kick-off.“I can understand his celebration because what happened last week had really a big impact on him,” said Koeman, who was also indebted to the midfielder for two goalline clearances. “He will learn from what happened. I did some stupid things myself when I was 19, 20, 21. If you learn from mistakes, that is good. He is a human being and the best way for him to forget what happened is to play football. He was focused on the football side for the rest of the week and this afternoon. He was one of Authentic Bucks Youth Jersey many in the team who started not good and struggled to adapt to the way Burnley played. They were the better team. It took us 30 minutes and after [that] I saw the Everton I like to see. It is a good win.”Burnley were initially the brighter, more aggressive side but their failure to capitalise on several defensive errors by Everton – two undercooked back passes from Jagielka and a dropped catch by Joel Robles – provided one explanation for their inability to win away from Turf Moor this season. They fell behind when Ashley Williams flicked on a Kevin Mirallas corner and Jagielka converted with a flying header that Tom Heaton clawed away, but too late. Goalline technology helped the referee, Mark Clattenburg, to make his decision before Jagielka had a second attempt from the rebound. The veteran defender celebrated with a cartwheel that demonstrated why 34-year-old men rarely perform them.Tottenham keep pressure on Chelsea with hammering of Bournemouth
Everton’s lead was short-lived. Koeman was livid with Morgan Schneiderlin for losing possession in central midfield and his goalkeeper when, after Jeff Hendrick’s pass had sent Sam Vokes away from goal, Robles fouled the striker from behind to concede an idiotic penalty. “A stupid foul by the goalkeeper,” Koeman said. Vokes converted with ease.Burnley had a platform for victory but, once Everton stepped up a level, they had no response. Barkley’s shot found the far corner of Heaton’s goal via deflections off Michael Keane and Mee before Lukaku sealed victory in style, rolling Keane inside the area and finishing instinctively inside the near post. Leighton Baines’s ball into the striker made him the first http://www.officialbuckstore.com/Thon_Maker_Jersey defender in the Premier League to reach 50 assists.“I’m disappointed with the result but not the performance,” said Dyche, understandably. “That type of performance has to win you a game away from home eventually.”
If this was a duel between England’s two hookers vying for a place in the British & Irish Lions squad http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-8-alex-ovechkin-jersey.html then Dylan Hartley can celebrate a comprehensive win over his rival Jamie George but it will be of little consolation after a smash and grab victory for Saracens, inspired by a rampant Billy Vunipola leading the cavalry charge.It was Alex Lozowski who clinched the champions’ revival, making the break for Marcelo Bosch’s try and nailing a tricky conversion to put Saracens ahead in the closing minutes and keep them in the hunt for a top-two finish.“We got a head of steam in the last 20 minutes and once we got that confidence and momentum, we were excellent,” McCall said. “We had a decent bench to bring on but I think the players just got a bit angry and cross. That is exactly what we want from [Billy]. With a six-day turn-around, we didn’t want to expose him to a full 80 minutes, but for him to have 25 minutes was perfect.”Northampton struck first when Alex Goode was beaten to Stephen Myler’s towering kick by Ken Pisi, who had the presence of mind to offload to the supporting Mallinder, whose momentum took him over the line http://www.officiallaramsauthentic.com/Jamon-Brown-Jersey.html on the slide – Myler converting.With Duncan Taylor in the sin-bin, Myler landed his first penalty before Hartley was held just short at the back of a rolling maul. Two penalties from Lozowski and one from Myler gave Northampton a 13-6 lead at the interval.Just over a minute after the restart, Hartley plunged over for his try, finishing off a rolling maul and powering through George to reach the line for his first Northampton try since January 2014.Two further Lozowski penalties brought Saracens back to within eight points – and prompted the introduction of Ashton and Schalk Brits – but Northampton gave themselves breathing space with a delightful score, finished by Pisi. Mallinder gathered his kick ahead before a move that swept from right to left and back again allowed Ahsee Tuala space on the right. His inside offload was gleefully gathered by the Saints right wing.Vunipola was next off the bench and was soon given a warning by Carley, who was unimpressed with the England No8’s back-chat. It made him the villain of the piece in the eyes of the Northampton supporters who greeted a thunderous hit from Courtney Lawes on Vunipola with one of the biggest cheers of the day. They booed when Ashton finished off a sustained period of Saracens pressure in the right-hand corner but Lozowski’s missed conversion kept Northampton ahead by more than a score.The Saracens fly-half responded well with a penalty and with just a few minutes remaining, he burst through to allow Vunipola and Brits to combine to put Bosch over. Northampton sneak into the top six with the losing bonus point, a point ahead of Harlequins, who they welcome to Franklin’s Gardens on the final day of the seasonKruis, Conlon (B Vunipola, 54), Burger, Wray.Northampton may wonder how they contrived to lose the match but while Saracens’ resilience has to be marvelled at, it is three late defeats in a row for the Saints now.“We got a head of steam in the last 20 minutes and once we got that confidence and momentum, we were excellent,” McCall said. “We had a decent bench to bring on but I think the players just got a bit angry and cross. That is exactly what we want from [Billy]. With a Capitals Jersey six-day turn-around, we didn’t want to expose him to a full 80 minutes, but for him to have 25 minutes was perfect.”Northampton struck first when Alex Goode was beaten to Stephen Myler’s towering kick by Ken Pisi, who had the presence of mind to offload to the supporting Mallinder, whose momentum took him over the line on the slide – Myler converting.With Duncan Taylor in the sin-bin, Myler landed his first penalty before Hartley was held just short at the back of a rolling maul.

Two intriguing Division 1 hurling semi-finals are in store as unbeaten Wexford take on Capitals Jersey Tipperary, and Limerick play host to Galway, while it's also the last-four stage in the Under-21 football championship.All-Ireland U21FC semi-finals 1430 Dublin v Donegal, Kingspan Breffni Park 1630 Galway v Kerry, Cusack Park, EnnisThe end is nigh for the Under-21 championship as it to be replaced by an U20 grade next year. Judging by how the semi-finalists got to this stage, the last-ever edition of the competition boasts an impressive quartet, all vying to get their http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-8-alex-ovechkin-jersey.html hands on the Clarke Cup when the final is staged on 29 April.Dublin made it four Leinster titles on the trot with a comfortable victory over Offaly a fortnight ago.Aaron Byrne gave a man-of-the-match display on a night when rising star Con O'Callaghan also stood out.

Key to Donegal's victory was a 1-04 blitz just before half-time. Lorcan Connor got on the end of Jamie Brennan’s flying soccer-style dribble to finish to the net from close range.
Ethan O'Donnell and Michael Carroll goaled just before the end to put the seal on the win for Declan Bonner's side who no doubt will be keen to put one over the side who defeated them in 2010 decider.Galway dethroned the reigning All-Ireland champions Mayo in the Connacht semi-final and then took provincial honours when overcoming Sligo after extra-time in a pulsating encounter at Markievicz Park.The Yeats County held sway in the opening half in normal and in truth should have been more than five points ahead at the break.A Michael Jamon Brown Authentic Jersey Daly goal just after the resumption got Galway up and running.

At first it was just a few but very soon everyone joined in, good news travelling fast around Chuck Klein Authentic Jersey the Vicente Calderón, all the way from the Allianz Arena in Munich. The scoreboard was almost as swift: Bayern Munich 1-0 Real Madrid flashed up and this stadium, in its 50th and final year, erupted. The noise, loud from the start, rose a level. Then, moments later, it somehow rose again when Antoine Griezmann put Atlético ahead. They were enjoying this: it had been quite a minute.Their city rivals were trailing 1,500km away while they themselves led. Twice in three years Diego Simeone’s side reached the final and both times they were cruelly defeated by Real, the coach describing the weeks after Milan as like “a period of mourning”. At the team hotel Atlético’s fans had waited, fireworks http://www.authenticphillieshop.com/authentic-3-chuck-klein-jersey.html colouring the air. “Bring happiness to my heart,” they sang, “the Champions League is our obsession.” How could it not be after what Real did to them? How could they not celebrate their misfortune?Cold revenge would mean meeting them again and slipping in the knife of course, sure, but hearts here might not be able to take that and Arturo Vidal’s opener brought cheer. Plus there was hope that Real could go out and thus be avoided should Atlético get through – and, although it was early, although that feeling was fleeting and Cristiano Ronaldo turned the game round in Germany, Atlético were showing every sign they would. “Let’s go Atléti, let’s go!” the Calderón called.They were already up and running. Fernando Torres, Koke, Yannick Carrasco, Griezmann, Torres, Saúl and Diego Godín all had shots in the opening quarter of an hour. Kasper Schmeichel gestured for the ballboy to slow down; his team needed a break. Atlético were everywhere, possession and momentum theirs. Griezmann, especially, was acquainted with every inch of this pitch. It felt a matter of time until the goal, and on 26 minutes it arrived: Munich first, then Madrid.The move started in the Atlético area: a header clear, a flick from Koke and Griezmann took possession 10 yards inside his own half, racing up the wing, accelerating 40 yards all Andre Branch Jersey the way to the edge of the Leicester box, where Marc Albrighton bundled him over. It looked outside, but Jonas Eriksson pointed to the spot. Griezmann had done it again. “When a player that talented gives himself so completely, when he works like Antoine, it moves you,” Simeone, below, has said, although the Frenchman admitted Gabi, Koke and the manager sometimes ask him not to drop so deep. “Sometimes I feel my legs and I feel like I can do anything,” he said.Here he had. But it was not just about pace or even work, although there was plenty of that. He dominated the first half, dropping into space, playing and getting others playing, always involved. If this was the game where many predicted both teams ceding possession, Atlético finding it harder to take the initiative, it was not looking that way – although the goal did come on the break.Griezmann was at the heart of the play and the moment of penetration. He was “Di Stefano?ing”, as some are calling it, playmaker and striker in one. Filipe Luis called him a “genius” this week, “a unique player” who “wins me over more each day”. This was another of those days: afterwards he said his team-mate had been “phenomenal, as always – he http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/andrew-franks-jersey-for-sale-c-36.html is at an extraordinary level”.Endlessly improving Griezmann may be but, if has a failing, it is penalties. In Milan he hit the bar and he had not scored any of his three this season. This time he calmly side-footed to Schmeichel’s right for his 24th goal of the season.It felt as if the tie could be killed but it was not. “It is a good result but it could have been better,” Filipe Luis said. The game was played out in Leicester’s half, often in their area, with home possession reaching 64%, but Atlético shots went awry; there were 16 of them but only four on target. Torres slipped, his effort heading out for a throw and Griezmann’s ball across the six-yard box just evaded the substitute Ángel Correa.For fans, there was disappointment there and with news from Munich, where Bayern missed a penalty and Ronaldo scored twice. Real should be in the semi-final after all. Atlético are not yet, although the King Power Stadium should not freeze them like it did Sevilla and, though the lead is slender, few teams administer that like Atlético. That minute had gone and ultimately the night was only half as good as they hoped – but it might be good enough.Antoine Griezmann was tearing up the pitch at breakneck speed, running into the space that had opened up for him for the first time after Danny Simpson was caught upfield, when Marc Albrighton came charging across and clumsily brought the Frenchman down. It was an obvious foul, yet from the opposite side of the ground to where the incident took place, and Andrew Franks Authentic Jersey in the back row of this wonderful stadium’s vertiginous stands, it appeared as though Albrighton’s tackle was made outside the area. That view was confirmed with the aid of television replays, yet Eriksson had pointed to the spot instantly and Griezmann converted.
The Borussia Dortmund manager, Thomas Tuchel, has angrily criticised Uefa for the rescheduling Mike Dunleavy Jersey of their Champions League quarter-final tie with Monaco, claiming its actions made the club feel “impotent”.Dortmund and Monaco took to the field at the Signal Iduna Park, less than 24 hours after the original tie was postponed when three explosions went off near their team bus as they made their way to the ground on Tuesday, leaving the defender Marc Bartra needing surgery on an arm injury.The hosts looked understandably distracted during the first-leg tie – eventually losing 3-2 – and Tuchel claims his side were told they had to play via a text message from Uefa.Borussia Dortmund's 'yellow wall' stands tall http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Mike_Dunleavy_Jersey in face of attack “We were informed by text message that Uefa was making this decision,” Tuchel said. “We would have liked more time to take stock. This gives you the feeling of impotence, that we have to keep functioning and nothing else matters.“A decision made in Switzerland that concerns us directly. We will not forget it. It is a very bad feeling. A few minutes after this attack the only question that was asked was: ‘Are you ready to play?’ As if we had thrown a beer on our coach. At that time we did not know the reasons for this attack. There is a feeling of helplessness. The date was imposed on us. We weren’t asked about playing the game. Uefa is eager to continue playing and, of course, we have to keep it going but we still want to be competitive. Every player has the right to deal with it in his way. The team did not feel in the mood, in which you must be for such a game. We were attacked as men and we tried to solve the problem on the ground. The players had the choice not to Allen Iverson Youth Jersey play but no one chose this option.”Uefa issued a statement which read: “We were in touch with all parties and never received any information which suggested that any of the teams did not want to play.”The Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin offered an emotional insight into how badly players had been affected. “It’s hard to talk about it,” the former Liverpool player said. “I get goosebumps ... when you were in the bus last night... I can’t forget the faces.“We love football, we suffer with football, we love football. I know we earn a lot of money and have a privileged life but we are human beings. There is so much more than football in this world and last night we felt it.Kylian Mbappe gives Monaco crucial edge against Borussia Dortmund“We saw it a lot of times on TV and it was far, far away from us, even when it was in Istanbul, my country, on New Year’s Eve. It was close but also very far from us and last night we felt how it is like to be in a situation like this and I don’t wish anyone a feeling like this.”Before the match, both sets of supporters sent out a powerful message of unity, singing Dortmund’s adopted football song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” while the home fans also applauded Monaco’s travelling support for extending their trip another 24 hours.The club’s stricken defender Bartra, in hospital having undergone surgery on an arm injury sustained in the blasts, also gave a positive update on his condition via instagram.He wrote: “Hello everyone! As you see I am much better, thanks to everyone for the messages of support! All my strength to my teammates for tonight’s game!”Their city rivals were trailing 1,500km away while they themselves led.

Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said it was "plain and obvious" that the foul that led Capitals Jersey to Atletico Madrid's penalty in the 1-0 win in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg was outside the box.Antoine Griezmann's controversial first-half spot-kick handed Atletico the win, but the France striker was fouled outside the box by Marc Albrighton, with referee Jonas Eriksson pointing to the spot.Schmeichel, who captained http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com the Foxes at the Vicente Calderon, said afterwards: "It was plain and obvious to see, it has ruined our game plan."It is a decision that is tough to take when it is so clear and obvious. We should have had something from this but we have to accept it."We made a challenge outside of the box. They might have scored from that free-kick but obviously there is a much better chance of scoring from the penalty. But it was never a penalty."Boss Craig Shakespeare was in agreement and said Eriksson should only have made the decision if he was sure."It's disappointing, it's a key moment in the game, it is a really disappointing decision by the referee," he added. "He has to get that one right, he can't guess on those things. It's a definite free-kick but it's out of the box."It's the key decisions you want correct."Despite their loss, Leicester's hopes of making the semi-finals are still alive, though they will need a repeat of their last-16 antics, where they overturned a one-goal deficit against Sevilla in their home leg.Shakespeare is confident they will have a chance on home soil."I think 1-0, we would have taken that before the game," the boss added. "We came to try and get the away goal but we have seen what a top team Atletico Madrid are."We have got a good record at the King Power and the tie is still alive."Even though they Todd Gurley Womens Jersey lost, midfielder Andy King reckons it is still job done."To come here and still be in the game was the main objective of tonight," he said. "We can take them back to ours like we did in the last round and overturn the deficit."We can take them back to the King Power and try and make a night of it. We are strong at home and I am sure we can cause them problems back there."According to World Snooker, the final frame went on for an incredible two hours and three minutes, a new record as the longest in snooker history.The Dubliner went into the concluding session of their final round qualifier 6-3 down, but managed to battle back to force the decider at nine frames all.With the first to ten winning and taking their spot at the Crucible the final frame went on what felt like an age before O'Brien eventually emerged triumphant, winning the match 10-9."When I looked at the clock and it said 10 minutes after an hour and a half, I said the clock’s not even working at this stage," O’Brien said afterwards."It was a very good match until the decider. It’s seven years, six times I lost this match, so it would have been heartbreaking to lose again."Connacht centre Bundee Aki is remaining tight-lipped on his international future.The 27-year-old back has spoken with coach Joe Schmidt and will become Ireland-qualified ahead of this year’s November series but is also eligible for his native New Zealand and Samoa through parentage."I do want to play at the highest level, which is international rugby, but I need to focus on Connacht," he said in The Irish Times."Ireland have quality players. Jeez, they have a lot of good players there. I can’t parachute my way in there."I got to just put my head down and http://www.officiallaramsauthentic.com/Lance-Kendricks-Jersey.html do what I want to do, perform week in week out, perform consistently."When the time arises it arises, but for the moment my focus is just Connacht."Current Ireland internationals CJ Stander and Jared Payne both qualified for the international side having fulfilled a three-year residency period, however, this rule is expected to be extended to five years.Listen to Munster v Ulster (kick-off 3pm) live on RTÉ Radio 1's Saturday Sport and follow our live blog on RTÉ.ie and the RTÉ News .Bundee Aki tight-lipped on Ireland intentionsBundee Aki tight-lipped on Ireland intentions
This year’s League rammed home an important point about the current state of Gaelic Heat Jersey football - the six teams that stayed in Division 1 this year are playing a very different game from the rest.The elite ply their trade in the top flight - Dublin, Kerry, Mayo, Donegal, Monaghan and Tyrone are cut above the rest.There was some nice football played in the Division 3 and 4 finals on Saturday, while there was excitement at the http://www.officialheatauthentic.com end of the Division 2 decider between Galway and Kildare at Croke Park on Sunday.There wasn’t a huge difference in standard apparent across all three games. Then the big beasts came out to play in the Allianz Football League Division 1 final.Dublin and Kerry served up a bone-jarring, tooth-rattling 70-minute classic with just the right about of badness to keep it interesting and more than enough man-on-man duels, bursts of individual skill, sub plots and sublime scores to justify the price of a ticket (€30, in case you’re wondering).It may have been a relation to the football we had seen played earlier in the weekend but not a very close Carlos Ruiz Jersey one.Many people give out about the standard of football these days, but they would do well to look back on pre-Christmas League games from 20 years ago and more and chances are they’d be watching a hell of a lot worse.The game is in a healthy state and the fact that there are six teams operating at a serious level is an improvement on many eras in the past when the number was as few as half that or even just two counties.And this brings us to our next point - the fact that we’ve enjoyed a serious springtime of football and now have to wait until the end of July before we see another game of consequence.There can’t be a meeting of two teams that stayed in the top flight this year before the June 18 Ulster semi-final that may contain Tyrone and Donegal - that may not happen and even it does it won’t be knock-out.We are at the beginning of six-week break, allowing time to reflect on a hugely entertaining Allianz Football League campaign before the start of the Championship proper, discounting Sligo’s Connacht SFC trip to New York on May 7.During this time the GAA should think hard about the urgent need for a radical structural overhaul.Huge crowds around the country paid into Division 1 matches from February to April in http://www.authenticphillieshop.com/authentic-carlos-ruiz-jersey.html a competition that crescendoed with a high octane final between The Dubs and the Kingdom at Croke Park watched by more than 50,000 paying customers.Long gone are the days when the League was viewed as an annoyance by players, a chance to run the rule over a few new lads by managers and with almost complete apathy by supporters who stayed away in their thousands.The springtime competition is now a streamlined ten-week juggernaut that gives great bang for its buck.Below the top tier and the aforementioned elite, the counties are grouped into tiered divisions matched to teams’ abilities and recent record. Mismatches are infrequent, the chance for progression is real and there’s a price to be paid for losing games.Division 3 was a highlight of this League 2017, Louth blazing away early, the final round of regular season games climaxing in excitement and ever-changing permutations, and ended with Tipperary rubber-stamping last year’s All-Ireland semi-final appearance with promotion and silverware.Earlier this year the GAA’s Annual Congress voted to compress the Championship timetable starting in 2018 while, at the same time, adding an extra eight games during July and August thanks to a round-robin quarter-final series. But this was badly missing the pointIt’s long past time that Croke park embraced the League properly, scrapped the some-teams-get-a-second-chance, sometimes-it’s knockout, sometimes-it’s-not Championship and gave footballers and their fans the one fit-for-purpose competition they deserve.Barcelona need another Nou Camp miracle if they are to reach the Champions League semi-finals after a crushing 3-0 loss to Juventus in Turin.Paulo Dybala struck twice in a stunning first half and Giorgio Chiellini added a rare third after the break as the hosts claimed a commanding advantage ahead of next week's second leg.Dismal Barcelona's only hope is to repeat their feat of the previous round, when they recovered from a 4-0 first-leg loss to Paris St Germain by beating the French side 6-1 at home.But on the evidence of the first-leg display, a second comeback looks highly unlikely after Juventus dominated proceedings with the help of Dybala's brilliant first-half brace.The home side hared out from the first whistle and had their first chance after less than three minutes when Gonzalo Higuain wasted a good chance Chuck Klein Jersey in front of Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.Luis Enrique's men, smarting from a domestic defeat to Malaga at the weekend, looked clueless over how to deal with their opponents' attacking threat and they fell behind with just seven minutes on the clock.
Dortmund's police chief says "everything humanly possible" will be done to ensure Borussia Dortmund's James Reimer Jersey Champions League fixture against Monaco takes place safely this evening after a bomb attack damaged the German side's team bus and left defender Marc Bartra requiring surgery on a broken bone in his wrist.Three explosions occurred as the Dortmund squad were travelling to the Signal Iduna Park stadium for Tuesday's quarter-final first leg and the game was subsequently postponed.The local police force - Polizei Nordrhein-Westfalen Dortmund - held a joint late-night press conference along with the football club and the Dortmund public prosecutor.Police chief Gregor Lange said, in quotes reported by Bild: "This evening at 19:15 there were three explosions in the surroundings of the BVB hotel."We http://www.officialpanthersonlinestore.com/James_Reimer_Jersey must start from (the position this was) a targeted attack on BVB's team."Dortmund police also revealed a letter had been found, claiming responsibility for the incidents."The prosecutor's office confirms the discovery of a letter near the scene of the crime. The authenticity is currently being tested," the police force posted on Twitter.The match will now take place at 5.45pm (Irish time), with increased security measures in place."The stadium and the surrounding area remain the focal point for police," added Lange."We're preparing a major police presence for tomorrow and will do everything humanly possible to ensure the match can take place safely."The police earlier said in a statement that the explosives "may have been hidden Dominique Wilkins Youth Jersey in a hedge near a parking lot".Monaco fans left facing an extra night in Germany were offered accommodation by Dortmund fans via the hashtag #bedforawayfans on social media, while the club said on Twitter that all their supporters staying in Dortmund on Tuesday night would be reimbursed up to €80 by the club.The French club added in a statement: "Faced with this difficult situation, AS Monaco wishes to express its full support to the Borussia Dortmund team and all the components of the club."Goalkeeper Roman Burki was sitting at the back of the team bus alongside Bartra, and told Swiss newspaper website blick.ch how events unfolded.Burki said: "We left the hotel at 7:15pm and went down the street. The bus turned down the main street, and there was a giant explosion."I was sitting in the back row next to Marc Bartra, who was hit by fragments of the broken glass."After the bang, we all ducked in the bus and those who could threw themselves to the ground. We did not know had happened."The police were quick on the scene, and we were safe."We're all shocked - nobody thought of a football match in this moment."Borussia Dortmund's team bus was rocked by three explosions that caused defender Marc Bartra to need hospital treatment and forced the postponement of their Champions League game against Monaco.Later in the night, police revealed they were checking the authenticity of a letter found near the scene claiming responsibility for the attack.Three explosive devices were detonated near their bus before http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Dwight_Howard_Jersey the first leg of the quarter-final tie, which was rescheduled for 5.45pm (Irish time) on Wednesday.The incident was believed to have happened at around 6pm as the team were making their way to Signal Iduna Park.A statement on the club's Twitter account said: "Bomb explosion on the team bus at the team hotel. Players are safe."In an initial announcement, Dortmund had said: "At the departure of our bus, an incident occurred. One person was injured."The injured individual was confirmed to be Dortmund's Spanish defender Bartra, who was taken to hospital to have his right wrist treated. His club tweeted: "Dortmund confirmed In the explosion @MarcBartra was injured and is currently in the hospital. Good and fast recovery, Marc! #bvbasm"Dortmund and European governing body UEFA said shortly after 7.30pm that the match had been called off, and would instead kick off at 5.45pm on Wednesday.BVB said in a statement: "The first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final between Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco, which was scheduled to kick off at Signal Iduna Park at 20:45 CET tonight, has been cancelled and postponed until tomorrow."This was due to an incident involving the BVB team bus as it left the team hotel for the stadium. The police announced, 'There was an explosion in the Dortmund-Hochsten area'."UEFA added: "This decision was made after a meeting held at the Westfalenstadion between UEFA, representatives of the two clubs and local authorities."The Authentic Josh Smith Youth Jersey local police force - Polizei Nordrhein-Westfalen Dortmund - then stated on Twitter: "We can confirm that there have been three explosions in the area of the @BVB team bus."
Padraig Harrington believes Sergio Garcia was an ungracious loser during their major duels in Dennis Maruk Youth Jersey the past, but says he was delighted with the Spaniard's emotion after winning the Masters in a dramatic play-off.At the 74th attempt, Garcia finally got his hands on a major, but only after a play-off victory over Justin Rose in an absorbing finale at Augusta National.The Spanish player went close in 2007 and 2008, but was thwarted by Harrington at both the Open and the the US PGA Championship the following year, where Garcia again surrendered a lead to the Irish man.Later that year, Harrington said the pair had "zero in common" and the fractious relationship is believed to have begun over a rules row with Jose Maria Olazabal."I’m very strong on the etiquette of the game so I don’t tolerate people spitting in the hole, throwing their shoes or their golf clubs"Speaking on 2FM’s Game http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-9-dmitry-orlov-jersey.html On programme, Harrington said that Garcia benefited from playing the final round with someone he clearly had a good relationship with."There would have been a danger, if we were playing each other, that we’d both pull each other down," Harrington told listeners. "Myself and Sergio have been on tour pretty much as long as each other. We would have been opposites."His is a very flamboyant game, everything comes easy. There were periods when he never practiced."We were such opposites...I worked at it, grinded it out, got the best out of it."I’m very strong on the etiquette of the game, so I don’t tolerate people spitting in the hole, throwing their shoes or their golf clubs. That would be my attitude. That would be quite clear from where I came from."I was as polite as I could and was as generous as I could be, but he was a very sore loser. And he continued to be a very sore loser""Then we would have went into the majors, and obviously I beat Evgeny Kuznetsov Jersey him. I gave him every out I possibly could have at the 2007 Open."I was as polite as I could and was as generous as I could be, but he was a very sore loser. And he continued to be a very sore loser."Clearly, after that, we have had a very sticky [relationship]," Harrington said, adding that Garcia was a bigger star than performer for a period of his career.Harrington, who was working with Sky Sports during the tournament, says that while the pair say hello through "gritted teeth", he was pleased that the win meant so much to the 37-year-old."The Ryder Cup improves it no end, but we say hello to each other every day we meet, but it’s with gritted teeth. There’s no doubt about it."It’s just one of those things...we’re rivals."I was delighted to see the emotion on the 18th green. Anybody watching that has got to feel for Lance Kendricks Youth Jersey him. You could see in that moment in time that he has paid his dues."The three-time major winner believes that runner-up Justin Rose mentally took the foot off the pedal, which was intimated by the player himself speaking to reports after the final round.
