Jose Mourinho hits back at Chelsea manager Antonio Conte with fixing jibe

perth_map

The most interesting information was about Antonio Conte , who despite having relationship problems with David Luiz, would have told the player that he's staying because he's needed for the rest of the season. But I don't blame him at all. I'm not free of that, especially if we score a winning goal in a specific moment, I am not free to have an out-of-control reaction. Read More »

perth_map

Between LaVar Ball's bold statements making headlines, to Lonzo's drama with the Lakers , to LiAngelo and LaMelo attempting to conquer Lithuania , the family is pretty much everywhere these days.

In fact, it most quarters that would be seen as good management, and that's how we feel about this. "Some people think they have to be at the club but that's a problem I can not solve". Lingard's future at United as a first-team player is not under doubt but if Jose indeed decides to jump into the market and get an attacking player, his role as a starter will definitely be under the cloud.

The 27 year old is playing in the Kontinental Hockey League . On Wednesday, TSN's Darren Dreger reported that he turned down an invitation, likely because he preferred to play NCAA rather than potentially be the No. Instead, Canada's lineup features former NHLers such as Mason Raymond and Gilbert Brule.

Kansas City's Justin Houston recovered but officials ruled Mariota's forward progress had been stopped before the fumble, setting up Ryan Succop's 49-yard field goal. How will the Patriots attack the problem of stopping them? "It was a great job by him, and I appreciate him", Henry said. He certainly isn't built like a running back. Read More »

The contest will follow the three-on-three format that was implemented in 2016, with the four divisions in a three-game tournament for a $1-million prize. That's good.
