DAVID MOYES reckons Manchester City are so good they would have a chance of beating a fantasy line-up of the Premier League's best players. Pep Guardiola's men have won the last two league titles and got off to a flier this season with a 5-0 thrashing of West Ham on Saturday. And such is their dominance, the former Manchester United and Everton manager believes even an all-star XI from the other 19 teams may struggle against them. He told TalkSPORT: “I was trying to think the other day if you could make a Premier League team up from all the teams that could topple Man City to win the league, I think it would be very tough."Even if you had a team that included all the top players in it.” A team made up on non-City players would naturally feature plenty of Liverpool players in defence. Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold all made the PFA Team of the Year in 2018/19 - although Aaron Wan-Bissaka is running the right-back close in this selection. Two … [Read more...] about David Moyes reckons Man City would beat team made up of Premier League’s best players… but do Salah, Aubameyang and Co have a chance?

Premier League striker Andy Carroll has lost a battle to build a double gazebo at his new £4.1million mansion complete with a bar and barbecue. The Newcastle United player bought the Grade II listed six-bed house in Epping, Essex, from Sir Rod Stewart.

It's the international window, which means the Premier League clubs have a two-week break and a chance to take stock of how the new season is progressing. We have asked our writers to give their verdicts on how the clubs on their respective patches have done 12 games into the campaign. From the biggest surprise to the greatest headache and the key issues that players, manager and board have to deal with, here are our half-term reports. Each report will contain five teams, in alphabetical order, and we will be rolling out four reports in total - one a day until Friday. First up, it's Arsenal, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Brighton and Burnley... Arsenal Moment of the season: The jeering of Granit Xhaka, and the midfielder’s subsequent decision to tell his own supporters to “f--- off”, will be remembered for years. Not only for the dramatic nature of the incident itself, but also for the way in which Xhaka was then stripped of the captaincy after ignoring the instructions … [Read more...] about Premier League November audit, part one: Arsenal to Burnley – how has your club’s season gone so far?
On the face of it, a delayed draw, inconsistent squad announcements and a muted marketing campaign have not given much cause for enthusiasm for the uninitiated, nor hope for change for the long-suffering. Just as well football is ultimately judged by the product on the pitch rather than its packaging off it. Thanks to the passion ignited by the Women’s World Cup, the return of the Matildas to Australian shores and the new collective bargaining announcement – as well as the likelihood of more signings right up to Thursday night’s kick-off – the 2019-20 W-League season looks set to inspire a new cluster of fans as it makes up for lost time. Adelaide United Head coach: Ivan Karlović Ins so far: Mary Fowler (Bankstown City FC), Ciara Fowler (Bankstown City FC), Julia Ashley (Linköpings FC), Mallory Weber (Utah Royals), Amber Brooks (Houston Dash), Evelyn Goldsmith (Adelaide University), Matilda McNamara (Adelaide City), Lais Araujo (Arna-Bjørnar) … [Read more...] about W-League 2019-20 season preview: team-by-team guide
If I said I wanted to die, the press, celebrities and the public would support my choice, seeing it as rational and understandable. Hell, they would probably set up a go-fund-me campaign to help me make it happen. Yet when a healthy, non-disabled person wants to kill themself it’s seen as a tragedy, and support and prevention tools are provided. If nothing else convinces me that to legalise assisted suicide is not a safe option for many of us then this does. Suicide is not seen as socially desirable – so why is assisted suicide seen as compassionate when it’s for ill or disabled people? Marieke Vervoort, the 38-year-old Belgian Paralympian gold medallist, is only the most recent disabled person to announce that she is considering euthanasia, saying her “body is exhausted”. She is not imminently dying. Yet no one seems to be trying to persuade her that life is worthwhile. Would Usain Bolt be met with the same reaction if he announced his decision to end it … [Read more...] about Legalising assisted dying is dangerous for disabled people. Not compassionate
