Man City chairman Khaldoon shuts down Alexis talks


United are thought to still be favourites as Arsene Wenger is apparently willing to take United's unsettled Armenian global midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan in exchange. It's possible.

'Miracle in Minnesota' lands Vikings in NFC Championship

Konta cruises past Brengle in Australian Open first round


Konta will face either Russian Anna Blinkova or another American Bernada Pera on Thursday, when temperatures are expected to be close to 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit). The rhythm that had slowly surfaced in the first half-hour or so built steadily as Brengle failed to curtail Konta's power. It certainly fired well enough on Tuesday, as she enjoyed 70% success with it; and her first serve hit 177kph - 37kph quicker than Brengle's, and she was averaging 164kph to 134kph. Read More »

Liverpool would hold on to register a deserved 4-3 win, a result which sees Pep Guardiola's side lose for the first time in the league this season (and give Arsenal fans at least something to be thankful for).

WVU Basketball Player Appears To Punch Texas Tech Fan After Loss


Esa Ahmad added 18 in his season debut following an NCAA academic suspension. Saturday's 73-72 squeaker over Kansas State at Allen Fieldhouse was the latest close call for a team that had to reload half its roster. A few West Virginia players didn't appreciate that and reacted the wrong way.
