BOSTON -- Drew Smyly has a chance to break a team record Wednesday when he closes the Tampa Bay Rays three-game series with the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys China .The left-hander, who faces Steven Wright as he tries to help his team win the three-game series in the rubber game, has thrown 20 1/3 straight scoreless innings -- eight this season -- against the Red Sox. The Rays record is the 25 1/3 straight spun by Matt Garza against the Toronto Blue Jays in 2008.Smyly, who pitched eight innings of one-hit ball with 11 strikeouts against Boston in April, comes into this start 6-11 on the season. But he is 4-0 with a 2.82 ERA in his last seven, lowering his season ERA from 5.64 to 4.80, and going at least six innings in all seven starts.Smyly shook off a shaky first inning that saw him throw 34 pitches, and needed only 55 more to get through the next five in his last start, a no-decision against the Houston Astros.I guess I was just nibbling a little bit in the first couple of innings, Smyly said after that game. Just missing. Got behind in the count. Made it hard on myself. But I was happy to get out of the first with just two runs. My pitch count was up, so in my head I was just thinking attack, go right at them and see how long you can last.The last-place Rays lost that game.Smyly is 3-1 with a 1.48 ERA in nine games -- seven starts -- against the Red Sox lifetime, 1-1 with a 1.71 ERA in four appearances at Fenway.Only two of Bostons better hitters have done well against Smyly -- David Ortiz 5-for-14 and Mookie Betts 5-for-15. Dustin Pedroia is 2-for-16, Xander Bogaerts 3-for-15, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Travis Shaw both 1-for-9 and Brock Holt 1-for-7.Wright makes his second start since coming back from a shoulder injury suffered diving back into second base as a pinch runner in Los Angeles, gave up five runs on seven hits, walking three and striking out one, against the Kansas City Royals in his return last Friday night.He struggled with his delivery early in that game but was, like Smyly, better as the game went on.It was fair to say that the first inning or two ... he was trying to establish a release point after some down time, manager John Farrell said before Tuesday nights game. He really settled in after that and was, I think, very sharp the final four innings, with the normal action and violence to his knuckleball.Wright, one of the pleasant surprises that have helped the Red Sox back into contention after another last-place finish, is 13-6 with a 3.18 ERA -- 9-2, 3.62 in his last 14 starts.This will be the first time hes faced the Rays, but comes in 6-3 with a 1.89 ERA in nine career starts against the American League East. Lee Roy Selmon Jersey . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans waived veteran receiver Justin Hunter and running back Bishop Sankey?as part of a slew of cuts Friday to get their roster down to 53 players.The Titans also released running back Dexter McCluster and waived offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi.Tennessee traded up in the second round in 2013 to draft Hunter out of Tennessee and spent its 2014 second-round pick on Sankey, the first running back selected in that draft.But neither player has come close to reaching his potential for the Titans.Hunter leaves with 68 catches for 1,116 yards and eight touchdowns. But coaches have consistently talked about his inconsistencies and unreliability. Sankey ran 199 times for 762 yards and three touchdowns.McCluster, who signed a three-year, $9 million deal iin 2014 that included $4 million in guaranteed money, rushed for 378 yards in his two seasons with the Titans and served as their primary punt returner. Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys. Poutasi was a third-round pick last season.The Titans have just three second-round picks on their roster that they drafted -- outside linebacker Kevin Dodd, defensive lineman Austin Johnson and running back Derrick Henry. All three are rookies.Tennessee traded last years second-rounder, receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, to the Eagles last month in exchange for offensive lineman Dennis Kelly.The Titans also waived 18 other players, including offensive lineman Will Poehls and fullback Sam Bergen.

Theyre the best young halves in the NRL and Chris McQueen cant wait to watch Ash Taylor and Nathan Cleary do battle this Saturday. Donnie Lewis Jr. Jersey .Taylors Gold Coast host Clearys Penrith with the Titans chasing a finals spot for the first time since 2010.A victory for the eighth-placed home team will secure their finals berth and it will be 21-year-old Taylor who will be charged with guiding the Titans into September.On the other side of the field is Panthers teenager Cleary, who has been a sensation in his 11 first grade appearances since debuting in June.Hes not playing like an 18-year-old, McQueen said.Hes playing like someone who has been there for years so thats going to be a big job for us and our right edge, to shut him down and minimise his time and shut down his opportunities.While Cleary delivered another top notch display as the Panthers smashed Wests Tigers last weekend, Taylor was resting his battered body as the Titans defeated bottom-placed Newcastle.Taylor will return against the Panthers after his week on the sidelines and McQueen admits the halves clash will be exciting.Its going to be a great match-up, he said.Cleary has been playing great footy and I think Ash has been going just as good.McQueen says the chance to rest niggling groin and hip injuries will only benefit Taylor ahead of a likely finals campaign.Hes still only so young and this is his first full season of first grade so to give him that week off and be able to rest his body a little bit I think hes going to be better for it.

HUNTINGTON, W. Josh Woods Jersey .Va. -- Terrence Thompson and Jon Elmore each scored 20 points and Marshall held Jackson State to just 26 second-half points en route to a 71-61 victory Monday night.Aleksa Nikolic dunked off an offensive rebound to get Marshall within one at halftime and Elmore converted back-to-back layups to give the Thundering Herd a lead midway through the second half that they would not relinquish.Chase Franklin got Jackson State within four, 63-59 with two free throws with 4:11 left, but Marshall closed with a dunk by Thompson and two layups by Elmore.Marshall (4-0) shot 48 percent from the field (24 of 50) and was 4 of 14 from long range.Paris Collins and Edric Dennis scored 21 and 20 points, respectively, to lead Jackson State (1-3), which committed 13 turnovers and shot 33.8 percent from the field (21 of 62), including 6 of 21 from distance.

Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. A case can be made for taking a day off after the ordeal of Del Mars opening program. Those who survive Fat Tuesday get a whole year to recover. The Oklahoma Land Rush was one and done.But at Del Mar, the show goes on. Saturday will come up quickly, even with its 2 p.m. Pacific post time, and for true racing fans, that is when the real Del Mar meet begins.Unlike opening day, beautiful men and women will be appreciated for their handicapping skills instead of their superficial good looks. There is room to breathe, and even turn around, in the Turf Club. And there is no jeopardy of being injured by someone wearing a hat depicting the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.Saturdays program also will feature the first noticeable tweak to the stakes schedule under the leadership of racing secretary David Jerkens, who came to the job in 2014. That summer, Jerkens was faced with a brand-new turf course not quite ready for prime time. Last year, he was similarly presented with the maiden voyage of a new dirt main track replacing the degraded Polytrack. When asked what major renovation he dealt with this time around, Jerkens paused to think.They painted the racing office, he replied.Yes, they did, going from some dull industrial shade to a calm, creamy white that certainly will guarantee full fields and happy horsemen all summer long.Del Mar long ago dropped any pretense of working with or around Arlington Parks Beverly D. Stakes for the female grass bunch. This year, to give the division a sensible, two-step series, the schedule shifted the 1-1/16-mile Yellow Ribbon Handicap from the rump of the meet to the first Saturday and pushed the 1-1/8-mile John C. Mabee Stakes to the final Sunday of the season, Sept. 4.Both are worth $200,000, which is about all you get for a Grade 2 race in California these days, and pretty much guarantees Jerkens and his crew will need to hustle if they are to avoid demotion to Grade 3.Still, no matter how hard they try, the trend does not seem to favor Del Mar. During the 39-day meet, there will be 21 graded races, six of which are Grade 1, led by the Del Mar Futurity, which has produced the last three winners of the Kentucky Derby.In contrast, during the 40-day Saratoga meet that begins next week, there will be 35 graded races, 16 of them rated Grade 1 by the American Graded Stakes Committee, a wholly owned function of the Kentucky-based Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association. Conclusions may now be drawn.The Mabee sailed along as a Grade 1 racce for 26 years from 1984 to 2009. Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys. As for the Yellow Ribbon, it was the premier distance grass race in California for fillies and mares for 33 seasons while run at Santa Anita during the Oak Tree Racing Association meet.When the group was booted from Santa Anita, the race name was retained by Oak Tree, along with some office furniture and stationery, and was offered to Del Mar in place of the Palomar Handicap. Since no one could recall why it was named the Palomar Handicap in the first place, the change was a no-brainer. It helped that Oak Tree funded most of the purse.Oak Tree does business in Northern California now and left the Yellow Ribbon behind for Del Mar to enjoy, and fund, as its own. On Saturday, the race will feature the graded stakes winners Queen of The Sand, Finest City, Her Emmynency, Nancy From Nairobi, and Keri Belle, plus the 1-2 finishers from the 2015 Yellow Ribbon, Shes Not Here and Prize Exhibit.Theres little doubt that Prize Exhibit likes Del Mar. She won the 2015 San Clemente over the course, finished third in the Del Mar Oaks, and was not embarrassed last fall against her elders in the Matriarch. She was off to the races this year with a win in the Monrovia at Santa Anita, but then her running style caught up with her, and she has had little joy since.Thats the price you pay with a stretch runner like her in big fields on the grass, said trainer Jim Cassidy at his Del Mar barn this week.In her last five turf starts, Prize Exhibit has been part of fields numbering 13, 14, 11, 11, and 14. Most recently, she was fifth behind the record-setting Celestine in the Just a Game at Belmont Park, beaten less than two lengths for second.And she would have been second with any luck at all, Cassidy insisted.Two stalls down, Prize Exhibit was eavesdropping in a shadowy corner, but her long, white blaze gave her away. The English-bred daughter of Showcasing has been knocking heads with some of the best in the division not named Tepin over the past year. If she has taken it to heart, it did not show in the glow of her dark brown coat. Cassidy leaked an admiring smile, then quickly recovered his game face.Shes at her best at a mile, he said, so well see if she can get the mile and a sixteenth. Even then, shell need luck.Then again, theres only nine in the field. Prize Exhibit might feel like shes all alone out there.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey decided his starters would play one series Thursday night, and for the defense, that meant a single snap.The Titans forced and recovered a fumble on the games first play, setting up a touchdown as they beat Miami 21-10 in the Dolphins remodeled stadium.Tennessee defensive end DaQuan Jones jarred the ball loose from Jay Ajayi, and Rashad Johnson recovered. Three plays later, rookie Derrick Henry scored on a 1-yard run, and that was the last action for almost all Titans first-teamers.Im happy with the defense with a turnover on the first play, Mularkey said. Im happy with the offense scoring a touchdown off of the turnover. Those are things good teams do.The game gave South Floridians their first chance to check out the $500 million renovation of the Dolphins stadium, including a canopy and new video boards, as the project made its tight deadline.We had over 600 workers here, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for eight months, Dolphins president Tom Garfinkel said. Thats what it took to get it done.Any attendance boost will have to wait, however. The crowd totaled perhaps 20,000, meaning the stadium was less than one-third full.Quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill didnt play. Most of the Dolphins starters were held out, and coaches on both teams used the game to evaluate players trying to make the roster.The Titans finished the exhibition season 3-1, and the Dolphins went 2-2. Both teams open the regular season Sept. 11, with Miami at Seattle, and Tennessee hosting Minnesota.ROOKIE WATCHDolphins: G Laremy Tunsil, their first-round pick and a likely starter, was nursing a minor foot injury and didnt play as a precaution.

To have that happen, I expect better from him.Ajayi may lose the starting job to Arian Foster, who didnt play. CB Tony Lippett, battling rookie Xavien Howard for a starting job, had a first-quarter interception. Howard made his preseason debut and had three tackles.Tennessee: RB Bishop Sankey, a 2014 second-round pick fighting for a roster spot, didnt get a carry until the second half and finished with 25 yards in eight carries.

CLEVELAND -- Josh Tomlin is running out of time, if he hasnt already. Whoelsale China Colts Jerseys .October is right around the corner, and if hes going to pitch then -- or in any meaningful games down the stretch -- Tomlin knows he had better start performing for the Indians.I need to figure it out, and figure it out quick, he said.Tomlin didnt get out of the second inning Tuesday night, continuing a run of bad starts for the right-hander, but Cleveland rallied and got another strong outing from its bullpen to beat Minnesota 5-4 and extend the Twins losing streak to 12 games.Francisco Lindors double off Alex Wimmers (0-1) snapped a 4-4 tie and helped the Indians maintain their lead over second-place Detroit in the AL Central.Rajai Davis hit a three-run homer and Jason Kipnis added a solo shot for Cleveland, which trailed 4-1 in the second after the Twins knocked around Tomlin, who lasted just 1 2/3 innings. Dan Otero (4-1) pitched 2 2/3 hitless innings, Bryan Shaw worked out of a jam in the seventh and Andrew Miller got five outs for his third save since joining Cleveland.The Indians also got a spectacular play from reliever Zach McAllister, who blindly swung his left leg behind him to stop a comebacker in the sixth inning.I dont know if that caught him or he caught it, Indians manager Terry Francona said. I know hes going to have a bruise on his calf, but hell take it.It all bailed out Tomlin, who is 0-5 with an 11.47 ERA in his last six starts and could soon find himself out of Clevelands rotation. Francona said he may soon juggle things and Tomlin understands hes the reason why.Whatever move he makes I understand, Tomlin said. Im struggling. I know Im struggling. I take full ownership in that. Its my fault. I dont know what Im doing, but Im anxious to back here tomorrow and try to figure it out. Whatever he has to do, I get it.Minnesotas current slide is the third longest in club history. The Twins, who have lost five one-run games in the stretch, dropped 13 straight in 1961 and a team-record 14 consecutive games in 1982.Brian Dozier homered for the Twins, winless since Aug. 17. Minnesota pitchers walked eight.Too many walks, Dozier said. You cant give stuff away, especially against a good team. This is the big leagues. You cant give away stuff like that.As the playoff race heats up, the Indians found some outfield depth, agreeing on a trade to acquire Coco Crisp from Oakland. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press the sides are only awaiting approval from Major League Baseball. The 36-year-old Crisp began his career with Cleveland in 2002.With runners at first and second in the fifth, Lindor barely missed hitting a three-run homer when his shot caromed high off the wall in left-center. Davis scored easily from second, but Kipnis was thrown out at the plate by shortstop Eduardo Escobar, who made a perfect relay.The Indians had two runners thrown out at third and one at home.Tomlin was in trouble on his first pitch, with Dozier driving it into the seats for his 31st homer. The Twins made it 2-0 on Miguel Sanos RBI single.MCALLISTERS MAGICIn the sixth, Minnesotas Kurt Suzuki hit a smash through the middle behind McAllister, who whipped his leg around to stop the ball. It popped straight up and the right-hander snagged it for the out.Just reaction, said McAllister, whose calf was red and swollen. Theres nothing more than that. Its a ball coming back at you and hopefully you either stop it and make the play, or it goes through the middle and its probably a base hit. It just worked in my favor tonight.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: OF Michael Brantley expects to wear a sling for six more weeks as he recovers from his second surgery since November. The former All-Star only played 11 games this season and endured numerous setbacks as he tried to come back from offseason right shoulder surgery. He had an operation on his biceps earlier this month.UP NEXTTwins: Pat Dean makes his second start since being recalled Aug. 12. The right-hander lasted just three innings in his previous start, allowing six runs and eight hits in a loss to Toronto.Indians: Making a run at his second AL Cy Young Award in three seasons, Corey Kluber (14-8) starts the series finale. He hasnt lost since July 3, going 6-0 in his last nine starts. Kluber led the AL with 16 losses last season.

LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. The NBAs general managers are expecting a third straight Golden State-Cleveland matchup in this seasons NBA Finals, with the Warriors the pick to reclaim the title.Such was the consensus from the annual poll of general managers by NBA.com . The Warriors and Cavaliers each got 97 percent of the votes cast by GMs when asked to pick the Western and Eastern conference champions -- meaning, if each team got one ballot, 29 of the 30 teams voted for a rematch.And heres why it wouldnt have been unanimous: General managers were not allowed to vote for their own clubs. Boston got the other conference-title vote in the East, San Antonio got the other one in the West.The Warriors got 69 percent of votes cast to emerge as champions for the second time in three years this season, with the defending titlist Cavaliers getting the other 31 percent.Other balloting led to the following predictions:- Clevelands LeBron James will win his fifth MVP award. James got 47 percent of the vote, easily outpacing Oklahoma Citys Russell Westbrook (23 percent), Golden States two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry and Houstons James Harden (10 percent each), new Warriors forward Kevin Durant (7 percent) and Indianas Paul George (3 percent).- James remains a nightmare for opponents. Asked which player forces coaches to make the most adjustments, James got 75 percent of the vote, far more than Curry (21 percent) and Golden States Draymond Green (4 percent).- Minnesotas Karl-Anthony Towns would be the player most GMs, if starting a franchise today and could sign any player, would take in such a scenario. Towns was picked on 48 percent of ballots, followed by Durant (21 percent) and James (17 percent).- Phoenixs Devin Booker is the player most likely to have a breakout season, listed on 31 percent of the ballots. He was ahead of Towns (14 percent) and Indianas Myles Turner (10 percent), with 11 other players also getting mentions.- Curry remains the NBAs best point guard, getting 63 percent of the votes in that category. Marshall Faulk Jersey. Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers (20 percent) was second, followed by Westbrook (10 percent) and Clevelands Kyrie Irving (7 percent).- Other top positional rankings went to shooting guard James Harden of Houston, James at small forward, New Orleans Anthony Davis at power forward and the Los Angeles Clippers DeAndre Jordan at center. Interestingly, not only was James the overwhelming pick at small forward, he also placed a close second in power forward balloting.- Golden State, which landed Durant this summer, was the easy pick as the team that made the best overall moves this offseason. Not coincidentally, 80 percent of the GMs also said Durant is the player move that will make the most impact, far ahead of the 13 percent who think Boston getting Al Horford will.- Durants move to Golden State narrowly edged Dwyane Wade signing with Chicago as the most surprising move of the offseason.- Minnesota was the pick by GMs to be the leagues most improved team this season, and the Wolves Kris Dunn is the overwhelming choice to be the rookie of the year.- San Antonios Kawhi Leonard was overwhelmingly selected as the best defensive player and best perimeter defender in the league, part of the reason why the Spurs got 50 percent of the GM votes as the NBAs top defensive team. Jordan was the easy winner in balloting for best interior defender.- The Spurs Gregg Popovich was the pick again as both the best head coach and best coach in terms of managing and motivating players.- James was picked as the NBAs best leader, most versatile player and as the player with the best basketball IQ. But if GMs could pick one player to take a shot with the game on the line, he was the second choice -- far behind Curry.---Online:Complete poll results: http://www.nba.com/gmsurvey/2016 Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '

LONDON -- When the tears flowed for Andy Murray after he won Wimbledon for the first time three years ago it was down to the immense relief he felt at finally landing his home Grand Slam. Doug Flutie Jersey .This time, after beating Milos Raonic on Sunday, he indicated that the raw emotion that comes with being a new dad simply burst through the surface.Its special -- having a daughter changes your perspective on things, said Murray, whose wife, Kim, gave birth to Sophia in February.Speaking to ESPNs Tom Rinaldi, he added: I want to make her proud as well so Im playing for something a bit different now.Its a nice distraction from tennis. Before, I took tennis so seriously. Now, at the end of the days I get time to go home and spend with her.Seeing her grow up and change all the time is really nice and hopefully shell be proud of this one day.Murray almost broke down again after admitting to the pride he hoped his little girl would feel, and he wouldnt be the first father to behave differently when considering the thoughts and feelings of his child.Another reason the world No.2 found it hard to control his emotions at the end of the final on Centre Court was the Grand-Slam run he had been on.The 29-year-old made it to the finals of the Australian Open and Roland Garros this year and would have completed a hat-trick of defeats had he misfired against Raonic.Hes also had to deal with an operation since that 2013 victory, going under the knife a few months later. Back surgery was hard and the year after it I found tough, he said.You expect to come back from it and feel great immediately, but it takes time and you lose confidence and physically arent quite the same. It took 9-12 months to start feeling good again.Id lost my level, lost a bit of conditioning and it took time to build that back up, build my confidence back up -- and now Im here.Its been a few years now since I won a slam. There have been a few tough losses, and Im just really happy to have won one again. Josh Allen Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Jim Kelly Jersey . P.A.

If Jurgen Klopps men do emerge triumphant against City, then they will add to these other victories from down the years...2012 League Cup final - Liverpool 2-2 Cardiff City (Liverpool win 3-2 on penalties) Highlights from the 2012 League Cup Final between Liverpool and Cardiff. In front of almost 90,000 fans at Wembley, Kenny Dalglishs men won the trophy for an eighth time, decided via a penalty shoot-out.The Reds had fallen behind to Joe Masons 19th-minute strike, before Martin Skrtel equalised on the hour-mark, the centre-back tucking home a rebound after Luis Suarezs header from a corner had hit the post.Both teams then spurned chances to win the game in normal and extra-time, meaning penalties were required to separate them.However, despite Steven Gerrard and Charlie Adam missing with Liverpools first two efforts, the Championship side also hit the post with two of their first three spot-kicks, before Anthony Gerrard - cousin of Steven - failed to hit the target with the Bluebirds fifth penalty to hand Liverpool the win. Steven Gerrard holds aloft the League Cup trophy in 2012 2003 League Cup final - Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United Highlights from the 2003 League Cup Final between Liverpool and Manchester United. Liverpool beat old foes United in Cardiff to give their supporters something to smile about in what was an otherwise disappointing season for the club.Gerrard opened the scoring against the favourites when his well-struck drive from outside the area beat Fabien Barthez with the aid of a slight deflection off David Beckhams outstretched leg.However, the Reds were grateful to Jerzy Dudek after the Poland goalkeeper turned in an inspired second-half performance to keep United out, before a late breakaway goal from striker Michael Owen sealed the victory. Michael Owen beats Fabien Barthez late on to seal Liverpools 2003 League Cup final victory 2001 League Cup final - Liverpool 1-1 Birmingham City (Liverpool win 5-4 on penalties) Highlights from the 2001 League Cup Final between Liverpool and Birmingham. Gerard Houlliers side squeaked past First Division Birmingham on the way to winning a treble of cups that season, in the process becoming the first club to win the trophy via penalties.However, there was little sign of the drama to follow when Liverpool took the lead through Robbie Fowlers sublime 25-yard volley, especially as the game moved into injury time.Birmingham refused to accept defeat, though, and were awarded a penalty after Stephane Henchoz upended Martin OConnor in the box, with Darren Purse holding his nerve to force extra-time at the Millennium Stadium.In the ensuing shoot-out, after Martin Grainger and Dietmar Hamann had missed for each team, it was Andy Johnsons failure from the spot in sudden death that saw Liverpool win the competition for a sixth time. Sander Westerveld saves Birmingham striker Andy Johnsons penalty to hand Liverpool victory in 2001 1995 League Cup final - Liverpool 2-1 Bolton WanderersLiverpool won the trophy for a then record-breaking fifth occasion after seeing off Division One side Bolton thanks to a man-of-the-match display from Steve McManaman. Bruce Smith Jersey. The England winger scored either side of half-time, his second a brilliant solo effort that seemed to have seen off the challenge from Bruce Riochs men.However, a quick-fire response via Alan Thompsons thunderous left-footed drive set up a nervous finale for the Reds, who held on to hand Roy Evans his first trophy as Liverpool manager. Steve McManaman with the Alan Hardaker trophy for his man-of-the-match display in 1995 1984 League Cup final - Liverpool 0-0 EvertonThe first competitive all-Merseyside final was in the League Cup 32 years ago, when Joe Fagan headed Liverpool to Wembley Stadium to take on the Toffees.Liverpool were defending champions and would go on to win the league and European Cup that season, but were fortunate to earn a replay after Alan Hansen appeared to handle Everton striker Adrian Heaths goal-bound shot on the line.However, referee Alan Robinson controversially ruled in the Reds favour and after extra-time could still not separate the city rivals, a match of little noteworthy incident went to a replay.1984 League Cup final replay - Liverpool 1-0 EvertonThree days after the goalless draw, the two teams were at it again, although this time they met at Manchester Citys Maine Road ground on a Wednesday night.The encounter was another cagey affair and it needed a brilliant 21st-minute strike from Liverpool captain Graeme Souness to finally separate the teams.Playing a neat interchange of passes with Dalglish and Phil Neal, the Scotland midfielder then let the ball run across his chest, before unleashing a thumping 30-yard drive that flew past a helpless Neville Southall in Evertons goal.And that was that as the Reds held on for the win to make it a fourth consecutive League Cup triumph. Ian Rush, Mark Lawrenson, Alan Hansen and Bruce Grobbelaar celebrate Liverpools 1984 replay win against Everton 1983 League Cup final - Liverpool 2-1 Manchester UnitedThe holders made it three successive League Cup final victories by getting the better of rivals United in front of 99, 304 spectators at Wembley.However, Liverpool once again made Paisley - in his final season in charge at Anfield - sweat after falling behind to Norman Whitesides 12th-minute goal, with the Irishman fending off the attentions of Hansen before coolly slotting past Bruce Grobbelaar.With 15 minutes to go, though, Alan Kennedy was again on hand to drill home a long-range equaliser as for the third year in a row the final went to extra time.And it took Ronnie Whelan just nine minutes to decide the contest with a memorable curling effort past Gary Bailey, the third time the Republic of Ireland midfielder had scored in a League Cup final. Ronnie Whelan beats Man Utd keeper Gary Bailey to win Liverpool the 1983 League Cup 1982 League Cup final - Liverpool 3-1 Tottenham HotspurLiverpool won the League Cup for a third year in a row by overcoming cup specialists Tottenham in front of 100,000 spectators at Wembley, although for large parts of the final the trophy looked to be heading to White Hart Lane.The then-European champions had beaten both Arsenal and Ipswich Town on the way to the final, only to find themselves trailing to Steve Archibalds 11th-minute goal.However, after riding their luck on several occasions, Whelan beat Spurs No 1 Ray Clemence with just three minutes to go to force extra-time.And it was Whelan who was on hand to put his side ahead with a close-range finish after 111 minutes, with Ian Rush ending the match as a contest minutes later after being set up by Sammy Lees defence-splitting pass. Liverpools players on the Wembley pitch after beating Spurs to win the 1982 League Cup 1981 League Cup final - Liverpool 1-1 West Ham UnitedLiverpool had lost to Nottingham Forest in their first-ever appearance in the final three years earlier, so were desperate to get their hands on the only domestic trophy the club had yet to win.Bob Paisleys team had seen off Swindon Town, Portsmouth, Birmingham City and Manchester City to get to Wembley, where they took on West Ham.Despite dominating the game, Liverpool could not find a way past Hammers goalkeeper Phil Parkes, before Kennedy finally broke the deadlock three minutes before the end of extra time.However, West Ham forced a replay thanks to Ray Stewarts last-minute penalty after Terry McDermott had pushed Alvin Martins goal-bound header onto the bar.1981 League Cup final replay - Liverpool 2-1 West Ham UnitedWest Ham struck first at Villa Park through Paul Goddards eight-minute strike, only for the Reds to respond with two goals in quick time.Dalglish grabbed the equaliser with a sweet volley from a tight angle after being set up by McDermott, before defender Hansen scored the winner after his header from a corner deflected off Billy Bonds knee and beat Parkes.

LONDON -- The English Football Association is facing a no-confidence vote in the House of Commons and the enforced overhaul of decision-making functions dominated by elderly men. John Franklin-Myers Jersey . British legislators made the announcement after being told by former FA leaders that the governing bodys failure to challenge the financial might of the Premier League contributes to the England teams embarrassing failures.In a letter to the parliamentary committee overseeing sport, five ex-FA executives called for the appointment of a football regulator to modernize their former employer and make it more representative of modern society. The committees head said he is planning to introduce legislation to impose governance reforms on the FA.The FA is coming under attack from former executives and legislators while trying to grapple with the biggest crisis in its 153-year history over past sexual abuse of youth team players. The FAs limited response when allegations first surfaced against coaches and clubs in the 1990s is subject of an internal review, while police forces across the country have opened investigations.The England national team has also gone through a year of turmoil, with a loss to unfancied Iceland in the round of 16 at the European Championship leading to the departure of manager Roy Hodgson. Successor Sam Allardyce was then forced out after one game over unguarded comments to journalists posing as businessmen, and Gareth Southgate was hired in the continuing quest to produce the countrys first trophy since the 1966 World Cup.The lack of success on the international stage is in part a result of governance failings within the FA, according to Greg Dyke, David Bernstein and David Triesman, the past three FA chairmen, ex-general secretary Alex Horne and former executive director David Davies.In their letter to legislators, the quintet expressed hope that the woeful lack of English players or managers and the embarrassing failures of our national team for the past 50 years is redressed by changes to decision-making bodies.They complain that the Premier League holds too much sway over English football due to their financial might and the way financial contributions are wielded at every turn to assert beneficial positions. The FA has little oversight of the worlds richest soccer competition, which was the result of a 1992 breakaway from the Football League by leading clubs.It is little wonder that English football is out of balance, wrote Dyke, Bernstein, Triesman, Horne and Davies. The FA has neither the modernity of approach nor independence required to counter the EPL juggernaut, or to modernize its own governance.They highlight how those in senior positions in FA structures are by a significant majority, white, elderly men and collectively unrepresentative of English society and English football in 2016.Those concerns are shared by Damian Collins, chairman of the culture, media and sport committee, who said he wants the FA Council to have a more inclusive membership and term limits of 10 years.There is currently no effective governing body for football in England that is capable of responding to the challenges that face the modern game, Collins said, outlining plans for a parliamentary vote expressing no confidence in the FA.The committee is working with the parliamentary authorities to prepare a draft bill to deliver the necessary reform to the structure of the FA.Such a move could flout FIFAs rules banning any form of political interference in federations.The FA insisted that it was currently working on governance reforms. In a sign of the tensions within the English game, the Premier League said the FA had failed to deliver reforms and trumpeted its own investment in facilities.

CARDIFF, Wales -- Orlando Cruz of Puerto Rico will have to wait to become the first openly gay boxer to win a world title after being stopped in the eighth round by WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan on Saturday.Flanagan, a British fighter, improved his professional record to 32-0 with a successful fourth defense of the belt by knocking Cruz to the canvas twice in the same round in Cardiff.RReferee Steve Gray called a halt to proceedings after a powerful right hand from Flanagan. Ogbonnia Okoronkwo Jersey. This was the 35-year-old Cruzs 10th bout since declaring his homosexuality in public in 2012, but it was his first in this weight class. His record dropped to 25-5-1.

BERGAMO, Italy -- Substitute Franck Kessie led a late comeback in Atalantas final match of the year to earn a 2-1 victory over Empoli in Serie A on Tuesday. Markus Golden Jersey .Kessie, who turned 20 on Monday, changed the match after coming on -- scoring one and setting up the winner for Marco DAlessandro in stoppage time.It was Atalantas first victory in four matches, after winning nine of its previous 10 games. The club is sixth in the standings, just three points below second-place Roma ahead of the rest of the final round before the winter break.Empoli remained 17th, five points off the relegation zone.Atalanta dominated but Empoli took the lead against the run of play with its first shot on target, six minutes into the second half. Federico Dimarco floated in a free kick and Levan Mchedlidze flicked it in for his third goal in the past two matches.Empoli hadnt won two league games in succession since December last year and Atalanta leveled in the 74th minute when Kessie drilled into the bottom left corner.Kessie almost won the match in the 81st but his effort came off the crossbar and Aleksandar Pesic headed the rebound straight into the hands of Empoli goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski.Atalanta was pushing hard for the winner and, four minutes into stoppage time, Kessies cross was bundled in by DAlessandro. Evan Brown Jersey . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Aldrick Rosas Jersey . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. http://www.cheapnewyorkgiantsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-jake-carlock-jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. After watching his side confound their critics at every turn this year, Neil Henry reckons Gold Coast has one last NRL surprise in store.The Titans face premiers North Queensland on Saturday night, needing a win to confirm eighth spot and the clubs first finals appearance in six years.Its a position few would have expected them to be in at the start of the season, when a long-term knee injury to young gun Kane Elgey and the stench from James Roberts departure prompted most to write them off as wooden spoon contenders.A win in Townsville is no easy task - the Cowboys are notoriously difficult at home, having lost just once at 1300SMILES Stadium this year.But Henry is keeping the faith.I think weve got a game that can worry them, he said on Friday.Theres points in our team, we know that.Its all or nothing, were playing for our future.We really need to load up in this game or it could be our last.Jarryd Hayne - whose mid-season arrival on the Gold Coast helped spark the clubs overall resurgence - is expected to play despite a badly corked calf.The Titans have travelled with a squad of 19, including David Mead, who will slot into his old position at fullback if Hayne is ruled out.North Queensland are also sweating on their bigggest star, co-captain Johnathan Thurston, who is battling tonsillitis. Zak DeOssie Jersey. Thurston didnt complete the Cowboys final training session on Friday and coach Paul Green said he wouldnt decide on him until the morning of the game.Hes still a bit flat. He didnt do the whole session so hes still not 100 per cent, Green said.The Cowboys are strong favourites to secure a win that would stitch up a top four position and a finals double-shot.But Green remains cautious of the often unpredictable Titans.Theyre a good team. They deserve to be where they are, he said.Their halves arent afraid to take you on, their back five in particular are really good. Well be tested all over the park.STATS THAT MATTER* The Titans last win in Townsville came in the opening round of 2012 when they became just the third team in history to hold the Cowboys scoreless at home, winning 18-nil.* North Queensland have won 10 of 11 matches in Townsville this season - six of them by 26 points or more.* Neil Henry has never won against the Cowboys in four attempts - three before he joined them as coach in 2009 and one last year.

GREEN BAY PACKERS (11-7)OPEN CAMP: July 25, Green Bay, WisconsinLAST YEAR: Offense stumbled following season-ending knee injury in preseason to WR Jordy Nelson and struggles of RB Eddie Lacy. Bud Dupree Jersey . QB Aaron Rodgers 92.7 passer rating was lowest of career since taking over as starter in 2008. Coach Mike McCarthy took back play-calling duties late in season, though Packers still ended up losing last two games of regular season, and four-year run atop NFC North ended. Improved defense led by DL Mike Daniels and LB Clay Matthews helped make up for offenses shortcomings, while young secondary took another step forward.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: TE Jared Cook, DL Kenny Clark, LB Blake Martinez, OL Jason Spriggs.IMPORTANT LOSSES: DL B.J. Raji, WR James Jones, FB John Kuhn, QB Scott Tolzien, TE Andrew Quarless, CB Casey Hayward.CAMP NEEDS: Packers will proceed slowly in camp with Nelson as a precaution, though McCarthy has marveled about Nelsons work ethic in rehab. Lacy hopes to bounce back after slimming down in offseason. Matthews is headed back to outside linebacker, meaning Packers are looking for stability again on inside. Fourth-round draft pick Blake Martinez will get look.EXPECTATIONS: If Nelson comes back healthy as expected and Lacy returns to form, Packers should be potent again. Theyre always threat to make deep playoff run with Rodgers behind center. Return of DL Letroy Guion and addition of first-round pick Clark help ease loss of Raji. But Matthews should be happy to be back outside to rush passer.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Damian Prince Jersey . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow. Perez joins infielder Andy LaRoche and catcher Mike Nickeas with minor-league agreements for 2014 that include invitations to attend spring training. John Stallworth Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. http://www.cheapsteelersjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-xavier-grimble-jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. DELAND, Fla. -- Grant Kraemer threw for 334 yards and a career-high five touchdowns and Drake cruised to a 45-17 win over Stetson in the regular season finale for both teams on Saturday.The win gives Drake (7-4, 6-2 Pioneer Football League) four straight to close out the year, while Stetson (4-7, 2-6) finished on a four-game losing streak.Kraemers primary targets were Grant Menard and Eric Saubert. Menard caught seven for 95 yards and three scores, while Saubert had 131 yarrds and the remaining two of Kraemers five TDs. Sean Davis Jersey. Conley Wilkins added 140 yards rushing for Drake, which piled up 565 yards total.The score was tied at 17 at the break, but a pair of TD passes by Kraemer in the third and another midway through the fourth put the game away.Cole Mazza led the Hatters with 114 yards rushing and a touchdown.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. Mike Hughes Jersey . -- Jacorey Williams had 22 points and Middle Tennessee held off Murray State for an 87-81 win on Tuesday night.Giddy Potts, who made two late free throws to seal the win, finished with 16 points and Reggie Upshaw added 15 and grabbed eight rebounds. Xavier Habersham chipped in 12 points for Middle Tennessee (2-0).The Blue Raiders took control under the boards, scoring 42 points in the paint while limiting Murray State to 24.

Stark also dished out eight assists. Bryce Jones added 17 points with four assists and three steals. Alexander Mattison Jersey . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. Craig James Jersey . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. http://www.cheapvikingsjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-ben-gedeon-jersey . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. Each week of the NFL season we will sift through the deeper options at each position with an eye on identifying streaming fantasy commodities with valuable matchups to consider.Do you need replacement options for this first heavy bye week in fantasy football competition? We have some choice names to consider for those seeking widely available options at each position.QuarterbackBrian Hoyer, Chicago BearsFor the third consecutive week, Im recommending Hoyer at quarterback.? Though he is the only quarterback in the NFL to throw for at least 300 yards in each of the past four weeks, Hoyer is owned in just 20 percent of ESPN.com leagues.? Hoyer draws the Green Bay Packers, who have surrendered an average stat line of 287 passing yards and two touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks.? With the way Hoyer has been distributing his passes, he is well-positioned to meet both of those thresholds.? Hoyer shouldnt just be a streaming play, hes worth a full-fledged roster spot. - K.DColin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ersWhen afforded time to operate in his season debut this past Sunday, Kaepernick was successful, going 8-for-9 when he was not under pressure in the first half in Buffalo. This weeks opponent, the Bucs, have produced pressure on just 22.5 percent of opposing dropbacks -- 27th in the league. If the Bucs choose to lean on the blitz -- they have sent extra pressure on 27.6 percent of opposing dropbacks, above league average -- its helpful to consider Kaepernick entered Week 6 with an encouraging career 82.1 Total QBR against the blitz as a starter. The real selling point as a deep-league streamer is his rushing upside and how such production can buoy his fantasy floor, as Kaepernick rushed eight times for 66 yards this past Sunday in Orchard Park, with 53 of the yards coming on his four scrambles. The 49ers have run nearly three times as many zone-read plays as any other team this season, so we could see a nice blend of scrambles and designed runs against Tampa this week. - J.M.Running backMatt Asiata, Minnesota VikingsIf it werent for his teams bye in Week 6, Asiata would find himself on more teams than the 19 percent on which he is rostered.? Asiata ran the ball 14 times for 55 yards during the Vikings Week 5 win against the Houston Texans.? Asiata is the clear goal-line back for the Vikings and has performed similarly to teammate Jerick McKinnon in terms of yards per carry so far this season.? Those items combine to present real value as he faces the Philadelphia Eagles, who just allowed 230 rushing yards to the Washington Redskins. - K.DZach Zenner, Detroit LionsThe running back market has been dramatically thinned out by injuries and committees this season, so Im willing to take a chance on a back owned in just 1.5 percent of ESPN leagues at the moment. With Dwayne Washington and Theo Riddick banged up and Justin Forsett limited to just a handful of snaps and touches in Week 6, Zenner enjoyed a 77.4 percent snap rate and racked up 77 yards from scrimmage on 16 touches. Even if Riddick returns to the fold, there is real potential for Zenner to continue to dominate early-down touches, given how ineffective Riddick has proved in this phase over a growing sample. As for the matchup, Washington has allowed 5.2 yards per carry to tailbacks this season, most in the league. If Zenner can consolidate an early-down role for Detroit, he could again prove to be a sneaky streaming option this Sunday. - J.MWide receiverBrian Quick, Los Angeles RamsAmong wide receivers, only Cole Beasley, A.J Green and Quick have at least 50 receiving yards in each game for the last four weeks.? While the first two are rostered in almost every league, Quick is available in 94 percent of ESPN.com leagues.? This week Quicks Rams face the New York Giants, who have allowed 194 receiving yards per game to opposing wide receivers.? Look for Quick to continue his roll, making him usable as a bye week fill-in .- K.DPierre Garcon, Washington RedskinsIts unclear how long starting tight end Jordan Reed will be out with another troubling concussion, but Garcon could see an increased workload if he remains sidelined. Garcon is second to Reed in target share on the Redskins this season with 19.5 percent of the teams attempts. A helpful 68.3 percent catch rate has led to Garcon recording a reception on 14.6 percent of his routes, also second on the team. These efficiency rates leapt in Week 6 without Reeds dominant presence in the passing game, as Garcon led the team wwith 32. Dillon Mitchell Jersey. 3 percent of the targets and 33.3 percent of the teams yardage in the win over the Eagles. The Lions have allowed the third-highest catch rate and fourth-most fantasy points to receivers. With Garcon available in a vast majority of ESPN leagues, hes a fine plug-and-play option this week. - J.MTight endC.J. Fiedorowicz, Houston TexansFiedorowicz has at least four catches and 48 receiving yards in each of the last three weeks for the Texans.? Other tight ends who have accomplished the same: Greg Olsen and Martellus Bennett.? Despite also catching two touchdowns over those three games, Fiedorowicz is available in almost 99 percent of ESPN.com leagues.? On Sunday, hell draw the Denver Broncos, who have allowed 60 yards or more to opposing tight ends in four of their six games, including last Thursday, when Hunter Henry posted a 6/83/1 line. - K.DCameron Brate, Tampa Bay BuccaneersBrate has been Jameis Winstons second-leading target since Week 3 with an emboldening 17.4 percent of his attempts over this span. The Harvard product has been targeted on 21.4 percent of his routes and enjoyed a healthy average of 10.25 air yards per target, while most tight ends are found in the single-digits in this metric. The 49ers have allowed the seventh-most yards per catch and nearly 60 receiving yards per game to tight ends this season, as Brate is poised for a nice streaming setup on Sunday afternoon in San Francisco. - J.MD/STTampa Bay BuccaneersIf you are looking deep on the waiver wire to find a defense to stream each week, picking the team that is playing the 49ers isnt a bad plan.? This week, the 49ers will host the Buccaneers, who have forced six turnovers over their last three games.? The Buccaneers should also benefit from coming off their bye and therefore having a full two-week span to prepare for the dual threat that is Kaepernick.? Look for the Buccaneers to be among the ten best performers at the D/ST position this week. - K.DNew York GiantsWhile this one seems a bit obvious, since the Rams are a favorable fantasy matchup for opposing defenses -- D/ST groups have averaged nine fantasy points against them this season, most in the league -- its worth noting the Giants defense is owned in fewer than 15 percent of ESPN leagues as of Tuesday morning. This makes sense, as this defense ranks 26th in fantasy points per game. The Giants can create pressure on the pocket, as they rate 10th in the league with a quarterback hit, hurry or sack on 28 percent of dropbacks. Given the choice matchup against a Rams offense that still ranks 27th in points per drive, even after a shootout showing in Week 6, New York is a sound streaming option at an often fickle fantasy position. - J.MIndividual defensive playersLinebackerJatavis Brown, San Diego ChargersBrown didnt top a snap rate of 47 percent in the first three games, but injuries to the Chargers front seven have led to him playing at least 90.3 percent of the teams defensive snaps since Week 4. The rookie out of Akron was impressive on the collegiate level in tallying 10 forced fumbles, 10th most at the Division I-A level over this span. Brown is now thriving as a pro, with a sack in three of his past four games and a whopping 14-tackle opus against Denver this past Thursday, when he played every snap for San Diego. - J.MDefensive backKeanu Neal, Atlanta FalconsAn imposing athlete for the safety position with physical comparisons to Deone Bucannon, Neal has produced at least eight tackles in each of his past three games and has been on the field for all but one snap over this span. Investors in Miamis Reshad Jones, who could be facing a season-ending shoulder injury, might want to turn to Neal, who is flying under the radar as a rookie defensive back, for a supportive landing spot. - J.MDefensive lineDeForest Buckner, San Francisco 49ersMore than one possible streamer who plays for the 49ers? I had to include Buckner, given the heavy snap rates we often find for Chip Kellys defensive starters. The Oregon product has played at least 57 snaps in each of his past four games and rarely leaves the field for the 49ers, which helps support his strong tackle rate. The Bucs Winston has been pressured at the third-highest rate in the league this season, so a leaky opposing line could mean another solid showing in the sack department for Buckner.? - J.M Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
