Photo: Supplied Superheroes and other blockbusters Marvel Studio's superhero films have ruled the global box office for the past decade, so it's a safe bet that Avengers: Endgame (out 25 April*) will make more money than anything else this year.

Doyle Rice USA TODAY Published 2:16 PM EST Dec 19, 2018 Friday and Saturday will be fun days for skywatchers and worshippers of the dark. The winter solstice – marking the longest night and fewest hours of daylight of the year – is Friday. It's the precise moment at which the Northern Hemisphere is tilted farthest from the sun. In addition, for some extra excitement, there will also be a full moon and the Ursid meteor shower. The winter solstice occurs at the same instant everywhere on Earth. In the United States, it happens at 5:23 p.m. ET Friday (4:23 p.m. CT, 3:23 p.m. MT, and 2:23 p.m. PT). At that moment, the sun's rays are directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, a line of latitude that circles the Earth in the Southern Hemisphere. Although the moon becomes full at 12:49 p.m. Saturday, it will certainly appear plenty big and bright both Friday and Saturday nights. It's the final full moon of the year.

The January transfer window surely cannot come soon enough for Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams. After receiving strong support from chairman Simon Hallett, despite the Pilgrims’ lowly League One position, Adams will get the chance to reinforce his squad next month. And, without doubt, the most important area that Adams needs to address is strengthening the defence. Unless he does so, and it could take two or three signings, Argyle will be almost certainly be relegated. They gifted Bradford all three of their goals in the bottom-of-the-table clash at Home Park on Saturday, which ended in a 3-3 draw. All of them were preventable, and each gave Bradford the lead, only for the Pilgrims to bravely battle back. Adams has seen his side concede 40 goals in 21 league games this season, which is the second most in the division. Only 20th-placed Scunthorpe United have a worse record than that, with 44 goals. Adams has had to chop and change his defensive line up all season, due to … [Read more...] about Why the January transfer window cannot come soon enough for Argyle
Rafa Benitez has indicated Sean Longstaff will be handed his Premier League debut "sooner rather than later" with Newcastle United. The youngster has been included in the last two first-team squads and signed a four-year contract this week to extend his stay at St James' Park. Longstaff saw an outgoing loan deal to Portsmouth blocked back in August as he was told he was needed to be part of the senior squad. But his chances have been limited this term and most of his football has been played with the reserves or in the Checkatrade Trophy with the Under-21s. When asked if he would get a chance sooner rather than later, Benitez told the Chronicle: "Yeah, sooner, for sure. "I am really pleased with him because he has done very well in every training session. "The fact we gave him a contract is because we believe he can be a good player for Newcastle United." Newcastle will run late fitness checks on former Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden ahead of the clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers … [Read more...] about Rafa Benitez assures Sean Longstaff his debut will come soon
