Men's Replica Majestic Alcides Escobar Royal Blue Alternate Jersey - #2 MLB Kansas City Royals Cool Base Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, to a new season reminiscent of the old at the Emirates, where the good news is Arsenal broke their transfer record for a striker but the bad news is they ended their first game of the season with a classically dysfunctional defence. It was an extraordinary combination – a midfield player at right-back, two left-backs at centre-back and a right-back at left-back. Confused? Who wouldn’t be. Leicester had all the clarity as they took advantage and a 3-2 lead into the final stages of an intoxicating tussle. Oh Arsenal. Typical Arsenal. Absurd Arsenal. But where in seasons past this kind of situation tended to end with opening day navel-gazing, this time they found the resources to twist the tale with a theatrical flourish. Wenger threw on Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud to attempt a rescue mission and both of them delivered with goals to transform the atmosphere from fretful and pressurised to the liberating joy of a thumping comeback. The match-winner from Giroud sent shudders through north London. In finding the composure to power a header while wrestling his marker he made his point that the purchase of Alexandre Lacazette would not easily make him expendable. Arsenal’s penchant for starting seasons by getting a wobble in early has become something of an epidemic and they made a good stab at a repeat here. Jarell Martin Authentic Jersey Arsène Wenger leaned on the game’s statistics to suggest this win was somehow logical – bags of possession and 27 shots for his team compared to three on target for the visitors – but few in the crowd would have argued had Leicester been able to hold on to the lead they seized with moments of ferocious determination. A frenetic opening five minutes set the tone and presented a microcosm of all of Arsenal’s weird, paradoxical sense of possibility. Their ability to exude verve and be vulnerable in the same few flashes of a game was there for all to see. Day-one optimism cascaded down from the stands as the record signing Lacazette opened the scoring with his first meaningful Premier League touch. A mere two minutes into his official Arsenal career he was unmarked in the box to steer a powerful header past Kasper Schmeichel. The Emirates crowd cherished the moment. But not for long. Leicester’s response was resolute and instant, exposing the old familiar defensive off-switch in Arsenal’s mechanics. Leicester loaded players into forward positions and when Marc Albrighton floated a cross over to the far post, http://www.officialgrizzliestore.com/authentic-25-chandler-parsons-jersey.html the impressive Harry Maguire was more alert to the situation than any Arsenal defender. He sprinted to nod the ball back to Shinji Okazaki, whose movement was sparkier than any opponent and he finished instinctively. Having equalised, it would have been rude of Leicester to turn down the opportunity to take the lead in the 28th minute. Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka were punished for some casual passing in midfield as Albrighton pounced to carve the kind of opening that inspired Jamie Vardy to become synonymous with so many Leicester parties. The strike was smart and true. The goal sucked the confidence out of Arsenal. Rob Holding was robbed of the ball. Brandon Marshall Youth Jersey Leicester zoomed into another break and Okazaki was a fraction away from heading in a third. It spoke volumes of how Leicester interpreted the temperature of the game that both their centre-backs, Maguire and Wes Morgan, felt compelled to amble forward and frighten Arsenal’s rearguard from open play. The makeshift defence that Wenger pieced together, without the senior influences of Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker or Shkodran Mustafi, was jittery and easily stretched. A bizarre half ended with a reprieve for the home team. After Lacazette’s shot was blocked Leicester’s defenders raised choreographed “offside” arms while Sead Kolasinac ambled on to poke the ball for Danny Welbeck to prod in an equaliser. The half-time whistle was greeted by bubbling chitter-chatter about the reintroduction to the inexplicable emotional strain of Premier League chaos. It did not ease off too much after the break. Emergency action from Petr Cech, twice, to deny the onrushing Vardy and then a clever shot from Riyad Mahrez, merely delayed the seemingly inevitable. http://www.officialgiantsfootballs.com/Brad-Wing-Jersey-Cheap Mahrez’s well-whipped corner was gobbled up by Vardy with a textbook glancing header. Set piece, simple stuff for Leicester. It was the umpteenth time one of their players had moved untracked on to an aerial ball. Wenger later tried a touch of positive spin by saying his team were good at corners last season and insisted they could work on this and iron out the kinks. Time will tell on that one. The introduction of Giroud and Ramsey was influential, and a missed handball from Mesut Özil in the build-up to the equaliser was also helpful. Following a corner, Ramsey neatly controlled Xhaka’s dinked cross with one touch and buried his shot into the far corner with the next. Arsenal went for the jugular. Lacazette danced through the pack and tested Schmeichel but it was Giroud who majestically delivered the coup de grace. Both Leicester’s dejection and Arsenal’s elation were understandable.

the London Stadium they have nothing but love for Mo Farah. On Saturday night Farah will race on the track there for the last Gump Worsley Womens Jersey time, in the 5,000m final, and whether he wins gold or not, the home fans will cheer every stride he takes. Here – where every roar carries an echo of 2012 – watching Farah run remains a straightforward pleasure, one people will pay a lot of money to experience. It is beyond the stadium walls that everything gets more complicated. Because out there not everyone is applauding. As Farah winds down his track career, his legacy and reputation have come to look as knotty and complicated as the tangled girders of the Orbit. Isaac Makwala makes final after beating illness as Farah does just enough Read more In 2014 the website Letsrun.com ran a “doping perception poll”. It was designed to show whether their readers perceived athletes to be “clean” or “dirty”. A lot of elite athletes (and their agents) hate Letsrun. It is the place where running junkies go to talk about the sport and its message boards are filled with anonymous commentators sharing scurrilous accusations and scuttlebutt. They are a cynical lot but then a lot of athletics fans are, because they have been lied to so many times – by Ben Johnson, Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery and all the other athletes who were caught doping. Farah was one of the athletes Letsrun asked people to vote on. Of the 5,584 people who did, 56% thought he was “clean” and 44% thought he was “dirty”. Compare that with the polls for the two other great long distance runners of the modern era, Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele. Gebrselassie’s split was 73% “clean” to 27% “dirty” and Bekele’s 72% to 28%. Which does not mean Farah is doping, just that a lot of Letsrun’s readers think he is. And that is true in Britain too. Letsrun broke the results down by country. Among the 270 British voters, 64% thought Farah was clean, 36% did not. Farah has never failed a drugs test, a fact he has repeated again and again. The trouble is, a lot of athletes who later admitted to doping used to say that too. Marion Jones passed 160 tests in a row (though she did eventually fail one, in 2006) and used http://www.officialdallasstars.com/Adidas-Jamie-Benn-Jersey that very argument when she sued Victor Conte for defamation because he said he had seen her take human growth hormone. They settled out of court. The IAAF’s anti-doping programme was so flawed for so long that every competitor has been compromised. After Lance Armstrong a lot of sports fans feel that passing tests is not a defence that passes muster. That is not Farah’s fault but it is his problem. Because, hard as this is for his many fans to hear, his career invites scrutiny. To understand why, you need to go back a decade, to 2007. That year Farah set a personal best of 13min 7sec. That ranks, now, just within the thousand fastest times ever run. There is no hard rule about when a distance runner reaches his peak but a study of 72 elite 5,000m runners published in 2011 found the mean average age for the peak performance in that group was 24 years old, which is the age Farah was when he ran that PB. At the world championships in Osaka that year Farah finished sixth in the 5,000m. At the world championships in Berlin in 2009 he finished seventh. By then he was 26. It is hard for an athlete to make a leap forward at that age but Farah did. In 2010, when he was 27, Farah lowered his PB by 9.6sec and then in 2011, when he was 28, he cut it again by another 4.83sec. He explained the biggest reason for the improvements was that he had spent his winters training in Kenya and Ethiopia. It was also said he had become a lot more disciplined in his training and more dedicated to his careerBy then Farah had also joined Nike’s Oregon Project and started working under Alberto Salazar. “I believe he can just make that half-per-cent difference to get close to a medal,” Farah explained. Salazar did more than that. He turned Farah from the best distance runner in Britain into the best distance runner in the world. Farah won his first world championship title at Daegu in 2011, in the 5,000m. There was a lot of talk about the biomechanical changes Salazar had made to Farah’s technique, especially for his last-lap sprints, and the advanced machinery Farah was now using in training: underwater treadmills, cryogenic chambers and the like. Advertisement There was less discussion of Salazar’s medical and supplementation programmes. The details of those started to come out http://www.officialsstlouisblues.com/Adidas-Kevin-Shattenkirk-Jersey only in 2015, when ProPublica and BBC Panorama published a joint investigation in which two whistleblowers accused Salazar of experimenting with doping aids and of giving athletes prescription medicines they did not need. Salazar and the Oregon Project are still under investigation by the Unites States Anti-Doping Agency. An interim report, leaked earlier this year, gave an insight into how Salazar seemed to have been pushing the boundaries of what may be considered ethically permissible. Then in 2016 another coach, Jama Aden, was arrested in Spain. Police found the banned performance-enhancing drug EPO in the room of one of his athletes. Farah had worked with Aden when he first started training in Kenya and had also visited his training camp in Spain. Aden was described as an “unofficial facilitator” whose only job was to hold a stopwatch while Farah ran laps. “He’s not a close friend of mine,” Farah said but in his autobiography, published in 2014, he had said he and Aden “had known each other for years” and there are several photos of the two of them together. The apparent inconsistencies were unsettling. As the athletics analyst Ross Tucker argues: “I’ve seen people saying Farah can’t escape the association but that his legacy would have been much stronger and healthier were it not for Salazar. However, I don’t see how that argument even exists. This is a man who midway through his career was working with one of Great Britain’s best coaches, and whose ceiling appeared to be finals of major global championships and European success. Whatever has been achieved to earn the legacy [and by medals, it is the greatest track career ever] is the result of Salazar and the training camps and so forth.” Tucker, a high-performance sports science consultant, is hosting the Inside Lane podcast for Runners World during these championships. Aside from Farah’s associations with Salazar and Aden, there are other disturbing details. In 2015 it emerged Farah had missed two drugs tests, one in 2010 and another in 2011, which happened, he explained, because he had not heard the testers ringing his doorbell. Earlier this year Farah’s biological passport details were leaked to the press. They showed in 2015 Farah’s results had been flagged as “likely doping” but that, in April 2016, they had been checked and flagged as “normal with the last sample”. Farah’s spokesperson said “any suggestion of misconduct is entirely false and seriously misleading. Mo Farah has been subject to many blood tests during his career and has never failed a single one.” It all adds up to a long list of hard questions. Farah says he is sick of answering them. Which is one reason why he made the curious decision to hire Freuds to help manage his PR. Farah has released a limited range of his blood test results for public scrutiny, he has reiterated he is committed to clean sport and, of course, he has passed every test he has ever taken. Aside from formally separating himself from Salazar, he must wonder Authentic Kyle Brodziak Womens Jersey what more he can do. Because in the past three years Farah has come under more scrutiny than any other athlete on the circuit and, at the end of it, he is still subject to suspicion. Loud as the sound will be when he runs on Saturday, listen harder, outside the stadium, and it may start to sound just a little thin

Wayde van Niekerk said he felt upset and disrespected by his rival Isaac Travis Shaw Jersey Makwala who suggested he was part of a conspiracy that saw the Botswana athlete excluded from the 400m final. The usually calm Van Niekerk was visibly tearful and angry, speaking after taking 200m silver behind the shock victor, Ramil Guliyev of Turkey. He dismissed Makwala’s assertion that athletics’ world governing body the IAAF had unfairly quarantined him with a sickness bug to pave the way for Van Niekerk to take 400m gold. “It really did upset me a bit because I have always shown him massive respect and for him to mention my name in something fishy, as an IAAF favourite is unfair,” said Van Niekerk, “I’ve been putting out great performances for the last two years now so I think I deserve way more respect from my competitors. I want to compete and I’m not here to make friends, so I learned a great lesson, to focus on myself and not letting negative things affect meMeanwhile, the newly crowned champion Guliyev was forced to defend Turkey’s record on doping. The 26-year-old, who switched allegiance to Turkey from Azerbaijan in 2011, completed a lap of honour draped in flags from both countries, taking gold in 20.09sec. There are legitimate questions about his adopted country’s record on doping with four of the nine Turkish track and field finalists at London 2012 banned for doping either before or subsequently. Ramil Guliyev pips Wayde van Niekerk to win 200m at world championships Read more In a newspaper interview last week, Paula Radcliffe called for drastic http://www.authenticmilwaukeebrewers.com/Wily-Peralta-Jerseyaction to be taken. She said: “When you look at those [cheats] from 2012, then 80% of those come from four countries: Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and Belarus. But only one of those countries has been banned. That has to go further.” Defenders of Guliyev would point out he ran 20.04 to win the European Junior Championships in 2009 while still running for Azerbaijan and his best time as a youth athlete of 19.93 has been bettered only by Usain Bolt. “Every athlete is choosing their own way,” he said, “nobody is pushing anyone to do anything the right way or the wrong way, you are responsible for your own actionsProof that the 99th US PGA Championship will not be the domain of only two players should not have been necessary. Nonetheless, such a prompt was probably useful. Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, the dynamic duo who dominated pre-tournament discussion, matched opening-round scores. That the number in question is 72, one-over par, is hardly cause to rule either of them out of lifting the Wanamaker Trophy but it will also offer incentive to others in the field. The early signs are this will be an attritional major. US PGA Championship 2017: first round – as it happened Thorbjorn http://www.authenticsandiegopadres.com/Tony-Gwynn-Jersey Olesen and Kevin Kisner share the lead after a tough first day at Quail Hollow. Scott Murray was watching Read more Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen, a player with a distinctly average record in the final major of the year, heads proceedings with Kevin Kisner, of the USA, at minus four. Among the big names to hover with intent are Paul Casey and Rickie Fowler, who are two from the lead. The relatively high state of the scoring illustrated another point; that changes as made to Quail Hollow in the past year, particularly on the greens, render this a very different venue to the one McIlroy has enjoyed such success on. “These greens are trickier than Augusta National,” observed Adam Scott. The 2013 Masters champion did not seem to mean this as a compliment. McIlroy had been in fine position at two under before a stumble which in many respects epitomised the frustrations of his season. The Northern Irishman found water from the 14th tee en route to a double bogey, with chances to atone for that error passed up on the par five 15th and the last two holes. Fowler, playing alongside McIlroy and Jon Rahm, recovered superbly from a triple-bogey seven at the 5th. Rahm is one under. “I’m just disappointed with that [bad] stretch, but I’m right in it,” said McIlroy. “It wasn’t very easy. It was tough. The greens were difficult. They got very grainy as the day went on as well. If you just hit a putt a tiny bit off line, it exaggerated it. It was tough to hole putts this afternoon. Hopefully the surfaces are a little better tomorrow morning and we can hopefully hole some more putts. I’m only five behind; this is a tough golf course.” Spieth, who formed part of the morning wave, endured a poor day with putter in hand. Yes, it really does happen. “I’m pretty solid with the lead,” he said. “So that was kind of the goal, to grab the lead. It’s much easier when you are on the front page of the leaderboard than it is coming from behind. Given Trevor Cahill Womens Jerseyit’s the first round I know I’m still in it but I know that tomorrow’s round becomes that much more important to work my way [up] and stay in it. I’ve got to make up ground. I can’t putt any worse than I did today

Liverpool’s resolve to keep Philippe Coutinho remains intact despite their anger at the Brazilian’s attempt to force a move to Barcelona Kevin Long Jersey by emailing a transfer request. Coutinho’s demand to leave was rejected by Liverpool as relations soured between the playmaker and club on the eve of the new Premier League season. The Brazil international emailed a transfer request on Friday to Liverpool’s sporting director, Michael Edwards, in direct response to a statement from the club’s owner, Fenway Sports Group, that he will not be sold this summer. Barcelona have had two bids of £72m and £90m rejected for the 25-year-old in recent weeks and are expected to return with a third in light of Coutinho, who signed a five-year contract in January, agitating for a transfer. The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian's sport coverage Read more The Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, and club officials are seething over a move that has overshadowed the start of their season at Watford on Saturday. Coutinho is unhappy that FSG has refused to negotiate with the Spanish giants over a possible transfer and publicly stated he will not be sold at any price in this window. Equally there is anger on the club’s part that Coutinho submitted a transfer request having been told in face-to-face meetings with the owners and Klopp that such a move would not be entertained. The FSG president, Mike Gordon, held talks with the Brazilian last week in Munich, where Liverpool were competing in the Audi Cup, to reiterate the owner’s determination to keep him at Anfield. Klopp had a similar conversation with the player in Hong Kong after Barcelona’s opening bid was dismissed, with Coutinho and his agent, Kia Joorabchian, being made aware of FSG’s resolve throughout the summer. Liverpool’s owner went public with that resolve on Friday when it issued a statement that reflected what Klopp has said repeatedly about Coutinho’s future. “We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho,” it said. “The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and that he will remain a member http://www.officialmetsproshop.com/Lenny_Dykstra_Jersey of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.” Coutinho retaliated a few hours later by emailing Edwards. A “family friend” of Liverpool’s No10 was then quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: “Philippe has tried very hard to find an amicable solution to the situation but to no avail. He has tremendous love for the club and its fans but, like Steven Gerrard and Luis Suárez have pointed out in the past, Liverpool does not let its players leave on amicable terms.” Advertisement The transfer request caught Liverpool completely by surprise given their conversations with Coutinho and the fact that, while expressing a wish to join Barcelona, he had not agitated for a move before the FSG statement. The player reported as normal on Friday to Melwood where he received treatment on the back injury that has ruled him out of the Watford opener and possibly Tuesday’s Champions League play-off first leg against Hoffenheim. Liverpool expect him to act professionally despite having the transfer request rejected. At a press conference to preview the Watford game, held before Edwards’ inbox received Coutinho’s email, Klopp admitted: “I can’t keep players happy” but later expressed confidence his prized asset would not push for a transfer. The manager said: “I have known him for 20 months and that’s the only Authentic Felix Hernandez Womens Jersey thing I can say about this [he wouldn’t agitate for a move]. There is actually nothing else to say about it. The player is not in team training. I don’t go to the medical department every day and ask things like that. It is completely normal. Nobody comes to me every day and says: ‘Oh my God! Phil!’ We speak about the injury. That is all.” Klopp also reiterated his belief that Barcelona moved too late in the transfer window for Liverpool even to consider selling Coutinho. “Talking in general, I had to sell a lot of players in my managerial career. Some had clauses, some had no clauses; we had the Lewandowski thing and that was difficult when he went to Bayern on a free transfer. A lot of different things. Liverpool: Jürgen Klopp’s entertainers remain in need of heavier mettle Read more “The only thing I can say about this is that in life everything is about timing – whichever club asks early enough. It’s like how we do it. If we ask early enough, we try to do it. If you ask early enough, you can either switch the plan or whatever. But you cannot come up close to the start of the season with things like this. “The club is bigger than anybody. That is the most important thing. It’s about doing it in the right moment. It’s how we do it when we want to bring players in. It is about timing. That is how I understand. And that is all I have to say. Maybe everybody http://www.officialmarinershop.com/Hisashi_Iwakuma_Jerseyhas a price – in the right moment. In the wrong moment? No price.” Klopp, meanwhile, has confirmed Simon Mignolet remains his first choice goalkeeper for the new season. “In this moment it is Simon one, Loris [Karius] two and Wardy [Danny Ward] three. That is not a decision for the next 20 years, things can happen, but I am as confident as possible that if one gets injured we still have really good options

Brooks Koepka’s chances at Quail Hollow were always stronger than bizarrely long odds of 25–1 suggested. Koepka has driving accuracy Brooks Reed Authentic Jersey and distance, which are valuable commodities at this venue. A US Open triumph in June also enhanced the American’s belief in his level of talent which is now reflected by that success. Koepka signed for a 68, after which he highlighted the value of a level head. “We focus in on these majors and that’s when you’re trying to peak, trying to play your best,” he said. “Sometimes it’s a lot simpler than people think. I think people kind of psyche themselves out quite a bit in a major, put too much pressure on themselves. It’s the same game I’ve been playing for 23, 24 years. All you’ve got to do is put the ball in the hole and move on. PGA date switch makes sense for US but is troublesome for European Tour Ewan Murray at Quail Hollow Read more “I think people get quite frustrated sometimes in majors. I’ve seen it a lot. You’ve just got to stay really patient and realise sometimes bogey is not a bad score out here. It’s quite difficult but you’ve just got to realise that, you know, you’re in the first round of a four-round event. So one hole isn’t going to kill you. “I try not to make a double-bogey. That’s kind of my goal in a major; if I can keep doing that … I don’t know the last time I did in a major. It takes one hole to recover from a bogey and it takes two to come back from a double. You’re not going to make many birdies in a major championship, so you need to stay patient.” Tommy http://www.footballpanthershop.com/Corey_Brown_Jersey_CheapFleetwood appeared at this major having been afforded considerably less spotlight than was the case at the Open, in his hometown of Southport, last month. Perhaps that lack of attention boosted Fleetwood’s mindset; he opened with a 70, the same score as Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson. Justin Rose, surprisingly, could fare no better than 76, a score matched by Luke Donald. Casey opened with a 69, which placed him alongside Patrick Reed. Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els hoped for happier starts to their 100th major appearances. Els tumbled to a morning 80 while Mickelson, who remains without a win since the 2013 Open, posted a 79 later in the day. John Daly rolled back the years, however, when marauding to minus one and a share of seventh. It didn’t last and he finished with a seven for a round ofGawain Jones won his second British title last weekend when the 29-year-old Yorkshireman defeated Luke McShane, 33, the grandmaster who works full time as a financial trader, in a speed play-off final. The pair finished in a four-way tie on 7/9 in the main event at Llandudno. McShane missed his chance when he beat the No1 seed, David Howell, in round six and went a point clear of Howell and Jones with only three rounds left but he then slowed up with draws. A new format, nine rounds instead of 11, triggered a more cautious approach by several top players, leading to a bunch finish. Fewer http://www.broncosfootballprosshop.com/Demarcus_Ware_Jersey_Cheaprounds could lead to messy multiple tie at British Championship Read more The surprise fourth man on 7/9 was Craig Hanley, a former talented junior and master who has played little in recent years. The Swiss pairing system gave him an easier draw than the three elite GMs. Familiar names dominated as younger talents struggled to make a breakthrough. Andrew Horton, 19, who learnt his chess skills at Manchester GS and at the very successful 3Cs club in Oldham, scored a master norm while the 18-year-olds Conor Murphy and William Claridge-Hansen totalled 5.5/9 against strong fields. England’s best players will now prepare for the World Cup, a 128-player knock-out, starting in Tbilisi, Georgia, on 2 September. Fide, the global chess body, has already published the first round pairings in which the England No1, Michael Adams, Jones and Howell all face lower-rated opponents. It gets hard very quickly, though, as the England trio all have elite GMs barring their way to the later rounds. In round two Jones would probably meet Russia’s Alex Grischuk while Howell would face Ukraine’s Pavel Eljanov. Adams may expect to get through two rounds but would then come up against India’s former world champion Vishy Anand, the brilliant winner of this week’s puzzle diagram. Magnus Carlsen, the world champion, came within one game of losing his No1 ranking when he lost from a winning position in the Sinquefield Cup against France’s Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. That meant that Carlsen’s lead over Fabiano Caruana was down to less than 10 points but next day Carlsen beat the US champion, Wesley So, while Caruana went down to Anand and the danger passed. The final round of the Sinquefield Cup in St Louis starts at 7pm on Friday, and can be viewed live and free on the internet. Anand’s eye-catching victory over Caruana is featured below. It was sparked by Black opting for the active 6...Bc5 rather than the routine Be7, a plan which would have worked if Caruana had continued 18...Nd4 19 Rb2 Bd5 rather than the feeble b7-b5.

Silly season” may be stretching it but the fact Jonny May’s transfer from Gloucester to Leicester has forced Premiership clubs to Authentic Jalin Marshall Youth Jersey close a contractual loophole – not to mention earned him the nickname “Neymar” – is further evidence of a burgeoning transfer market in rugby union. England’s Eddie Jones discovers the risks of lauding ‘laidback boy’ Manu Tuilagi Gerard Meagher Read more May swapped Kingsholm for Welford Road on Monday for a fraction of the £200m the Brazil footballer cost Paris Saint-Germain but as far as rugby in England is concerned, the move was just as significant. It came about because the wing activated a clause in the Premiership’s code of conduct which meant that, despite having a year left on his contract, Gloucester could not stop him talking to other teams. Premiership clubs have closed the loophole but earlier this summer Northampton were powerless to stop Louis Picamoles leaving after 12 months of his three-year contract, for what is believed to be the first seven-figure transfer fee, while Bath were in a similar position over George Ford’s return to Leicester. It is a climate that means players such as Chris Robshaw, who has signed a three-year contract extension with his one and only club, Harlequins, are an increasingly rare breed. The 31-year-old revealed it has never crossed his mind to seek a future away from the Stoop but acknowledges the changing landscape, citing the kind of pulling power English clubs now have - as demonstrated on Thursday with Bristol’s capture of New Zealand’s Charles Piutau for next season. “It is coming more and more into the game with TV money,” Robshaw said. “People aren’t necessarily letting contracts run out which http://www.officialnikejetshop.com/jamal-adams-jersey-for-sale-c-68.html is what they used to do. I have signed a contract extension with a year still left. When I first started you were waiting a lot further down the line to address that. Kay Wilson leads England’s rout of Spain in Women’s Rugby World Cup Read more “Jonny May has had a little bit of stick about being called Neymar. They are slightly different contracts I am sure. Because people are looking at players from other clubs or poaching – the game is changing but it is great for the game. The league is competitive now, not only from an English point of view, we are attracting players that traditionally would have gone to France or Japan – look at the Schalk Burgers, the Willie le Rouws and the Kurtley Beales.” While Harlequins have tied Robshaw to a new deal, the director of rugby, John Kingston, admits he has his work cut out to keep hold of several promising young English players, led by the Lions prop, Kyle Sinckler. “The market has gone stupid in the last few years,” Kingston said. “The hike in the salary cap ceiling, whatever the idea was behind it, what it has done is inflate the top of the market. Everyone does things for money to a certain extent, it is all relative to what it is.” Eddie Jones, who recently said England would “win the World Cup with a team of Chris Robshaws”, is in Japan with a number of his backroom staff assessing training bases and hotels. Jones intends to take England to Japan two weeks before the competition and wants to play a warmup match in that time. “We’ll Ryan Hartman Womens Jersey look to come here around 3-6 September,” he said. “We are looking to play similar teams to the ones we face in the pool stagesWe have become used to seeing Laura Muir curled up in the foetal position after a desperate last-lap charge, her body drained of petrol and puff. But not, usually, after she has finished seventh in a heat. However this was the 5,000m, a distance she has run only once all year, so she was understandably relieved just to squeeze into Sunday’s final as a fastest loser. World Athletics: Guliyev beats Van Niekerk to take gold in men's 200m final – as it happened Ramil Guliyev pipped Wayde van Niekerk to win the men’s 200m gold, Turkey’s first ever at the championships; Christian Taylor won the the men’s triple jump and Kori Carter the women’s 400m hurdles Read more “I ran as hard as I could,” said Muir, who took more than a minute to rise to her feet after crossing the line in 14min 59.34sec, nearly three seconds behind the Kenyan Hellen Obiri. “That was fast. I’ve been looking at the times of 5,000m heats from previous championships and that’s the fastest ever.” The 24-year-old said she had put the ghosts of Monday’s 1500m final, where she missed out on a bronze medal by 0.07sec, behind her. But, on this evidence, her legs are still haunted by the extreme effort she put them through, particularly on a brutal last lap. “I took a day to think about the 1500m and after that put it behind me,” Muir said. “I watched the race back, talked about it with my coach and my family, and it took about a day to analyse it all and put it into perspective. At the end of the day, fourth in the world is bloody good. “It’s the best I’ve ever achieved in a global final. It’s better than seventh in Rio and the closest I’ve been to the front. “So mentally I was very positive for this race. My body felt fine apart from that last lap. I have two or three days before the final so I should recover.” Phyllis Francis wins gold after Shaunae Miller-Uibo suffers 400m heartache Read more And she has not ruled out an unlikely medal despite Obiri, the 10,000m gold medallist Almaz Ayana and the Dutch star Hassan Sifan being lined up against her. “I know I’m better than I ran and hopefully I can show it in the final,” she said. “Anything can happen.” Muir will have the company of a fellow Scot, Eilish McColgan, in the final after she set a personal best of 15:00.38 in finishing fourth behind the Ethiopian Letesenbet Gidey, much to her surprise and delight. “I’m so shocked with that time,” said McColgan, who judged her race perfectly and had plenty of kick left at the finish. “It was so slow at the start. We are not allowed to see the previous race so we were jumping over trying to see the time anytime the door opened. So we knew it was quick, the fastest losers’ spots were crazy. “For me, usually 15 minutes over 5,000m has my eyeballs out from the start. I’m over the moon with that, I’m really, really happy. I felt like I wanted to push the pace a little bit to at least string it out because my mum said don’t turn it into http://www.authenticchicagoblackhawks.com/authentic-scott-darling-jersey?gender=Youth to a 200m mad sprint – and that’s exactly what ended up happening. I couldn’t have asked for any more – automatic qualification and a new personal best.” However Britain’s third athlete in the 5,000m, Steph Twell, looked well below her best in finishing 15th in McColgan’s heat in a modest 15:41.29. “It wasn’t me out there,” she said. “I just couldn’t respond. My body didn’t quite feel right, so I’m absolutely disappointed, but it was an awesome experience. I was trying not to think about the race too much, but at the same time enjoy it and try to keep pushing forward, but I just didn’t have it in me

So much for the coronation – or the redemption. This night was supposed to be about Wayde Van Niekerk becoming the first athlete since Adidas Rene Robert Authentic Jersey Michael Johnson in 1995 to double up over 200m and 400m. Or Isaac Makwala defying sickness, the IAAF, and two punishing races in his legs on Wednesday to claim gold. Instead Ramil Guliyev, an Azerbaijani wearing a Turkish vest, ripped up the script to take the 200m world championship title. Wayde van Niekerk takes 200m silver but feels ‘disrespected’ by Isaac Makwala Read more With Makwala fading early in the home straight, the race became a shootout between Guliyev and Van Niekerk, with the Turk clinging on to take gold in 20.09 sec – inches ahead of his rival, who recorded the same time. Jareem Richards from Trinidad and Tobago was third in 20.11, with Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake taking yet another fourth place for Britain in 20.24. This was the first world championship 200m final without Usain Bolt since 2007, when the Jamaican finished second behind Tyson Gay. Since then the event has been Bolt’s personal fiefdom – with 48 victories in 49 races since 2008 and gold medals in every single Olympic and world championship in that era. It was never going to be the same without him. But the supersonic era of sprinting already feels like it is fading into oblivion. Not that Guliyev, who switched allegiance to Turkey in 2011, minded. “This is not a shock but this does not feel real,” he said. “I am so proud. This http://www.authenticfloridapanthers.com/authentic-jason-demers-jersey title means a lot. I delivered my best race at the right time. I’m so happy to be world champion. This is the best moment of my career.” In fairness, there is not much competition. True that in 2009 he came second in the European Athletics Rising Star of the Year Award having taken the 200m junior title. And he can claim to be the second fastest junior 200m runner in the history of the sport, behind Bolt. But it has taken time for the 27-year-old to come to the boil. Laura Muir talks up 5,000m medal hopes after scraping through to final Read more Certainly few people had expected him to win this race, with the bookies having him as the 8-1 fourth favourite. Guliyev, however, had other ideas. “I was competing against some of the best athletes in the world, so it didn’t bother me that the attention was on them,” he said. “Maybe at the next competition everyone will look at me instead.” Inevitably there were questions about Guliyev given that four of Turkey’s nine finalists at London 2012 have served drug bans, either prior to those Olympics or after. At the weekend, Paula Radcliffe cited Turkey as being among the four countries where 80% of the cheats from 2012 had come from. Guliyev said: “Every athlete chooses their own way. Everyone is responsible for themselves. It is hard for me to say one thing or another.” Advertisement Van Niekerk broke down in tears because he felt hurt by allegations the IAAF had engineered a conspiracy to keep Makwala away from racing him in the 400m by putting the Botswanan in quarantine when he was sick on Monday. Said Van Niekerk: “I really feel I worked hard for this.. “I have shown massive respect to Makwala and for him to say that Lanny McDonald Authentic Jersey something fishy was going on with the IAAF – I definitely deserve more respect but I have learned something from these championships. We are not here to make friends but to compete.” Makwala did not address Van Niekerk’s comments but admitted the efforts of Wednesday night had taken it out of him. “I’ve had one of the craziest championship journeys ever,” he said. “I don’t think I will ever face this again. I will always pray to not face this again. “When I got into the race I was feeling good, but the last 50m I was feeling tired. The lactic came. The 4x400m is next.” Dina Asher-Smith reaches world 200m final and hopes there is more to come Read more Mitchell-Blake was left to rue another fourth-placed British finish. “I knew it would be a tough one,” he said. “I’ve no excuses – Lane 2 is never ideal but I put myself in that position in the semi-finals. I tried to be really aggressive from the start, I had a great tracker with Wayde in front. “Nothing is perfect, all you can do is try and execute in the best way you can,” he added. “Regardless of how I feel about the race, it wasn’t enough to get a medal.” When it was put to Mitchell-Blake there would be better times ahead, and that he was still young, he refused to use it as an excuse. “I don’t see my age as a barrier,” he said. “I am 23 which is an age where I can get a medal so my age is not an excuse. I need to learn from it, build on it and come back stronger.” It is a http://www.officialdallasstars.com/Adidas-Gump-Worsley-Jerseymessage his team-mates, who have won only one medal in these championships, will do well to heed

Men's Allen Iverson Authentic Light Blue Adidas Jersey: NBA Memphis Grizzlies #3 Alternate And, breathe again. After a lingering summer of cold turkey sweats and chills, of August dog days spent slurping down another spoonful of transfer window gruel, relief is at hand. As of Friday night the Premier League is back, strutting in through the double doors, twirling its malacca cane, tipping its purple fedora and doling out another hit of the most colourfully framed footballing drama on earth. Even in a league where every season is more pantingly hyperbolic than the last, this feels like a significant point for English football’s great project. Most obviously it is an anniversary year. Next weekend marks a quarter of a century since the first Premier League season in 1992, when the talk was of ever-escalating modernity, of self-imposed hock to the broadcasters, and of wildly inflated transfer fees for young English talent following Alan Shearer’s sensational £3.6m move to Blackburn Rovers, an amazing £0.7m uplift on Dean Saunders’ switch to Liverpool the year before. Plus ça change, plus, well, here we are all over again. As ever the world’s most excitable league arrives in a blur of sound and light. Authentic Bishop Sankey Womens Jersey And as ever in the Premier League the superlatives tend to centre on excess as much as excellence, a version of football where the most notable qualities are not teams built and talent nurtured but pounds spent, billions dispersed, sacks of cash hurled to the winds. This is the other point of note for the new season. That combined £10.4bn TV rights deal has made its presence decisively felt this summer, allowing a league that was already drowning in money to become even more sozzled on its own profligacy. Unease at Neymar’s absurdly excessive, state-backed £200m move to Paris Saint-Germain is justified on many levels but closer to home the Premier League, funded by our own aggressively fleeced commercial loyalty, http://www.chiefsofficialsauthentic.com/CHIEFS-ANTHONY-SHERMAN-JERSEY is already approaching £1bn spent with three weeks of the window to run. Pep Guardiola has spent £400m on players in two years. Manchester United could have probably bought Neymar themselves at that price, arguably a superior all-round investment to a similar sum splurged on Paul Pogba, Pogba’s agent and bustling former Everton goal-hulk Romelu Lukaku. And so it goes on. Bogged down in this kind of talk, the challenge for the new season is above all to change the conversion, to raise its game in other ways. For all the attendant excitement it is hard to avoid the feeling of stasis in the Premier League. This is a place of interlocking but still discrete parts. Before a ball has been kicked the top six are already quite easy to call, Austin Romine Authentic Jerseywith Everton the most likely insurgents should one or two cards fall their way. Beyond this the usual sub-peloton of mid-rankers will grind their way through to 40 points. Further down it isn’t hard to identify the contenders for the usual divvying up at the bottom. This still represents a decent level of sporting uncertainty at a time of stratification everywhere else but for a league that trumpets its competitive edge, the no-filler excellence of its product, there are still some areas that could do with improvement. First up on the to-do list is an actual title race. Remember those? Only once in the last five seasons has there been anything resembling a genuine sprint to the line. Leicester City’s giddy ride was a wonderful thing to witness but it wasn’t exactly close by the end. This time around there is reason to hope for something more, if only because once again nobody really looks equipped to run away with it. http://www.authenticyankeeshop.com/authentic-3-babe-ruth-jersey.html Manchester City have the most captivating group of attacking players and a manager whose era-defining obsession with style and glory is for once perhaps going a little under the radar. This is still a club in progress though, with pretty much an entire midweek Carabao Cup team exiting over the summer. Much hangs on the ability of Ederson, Kyle Walker and the hugely talented Benjamin Mendy to add some instant ballast to a zany backline.
