Kevin Johnson USA TODAY Published 4:51 p.m. UTC Jul 31, 2018 ALEXANDRIA, Va. – T.S. Ellis III had something to say about the prosecution strategy of former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort – and he was not about to hold back. “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud," Ellis said, referring to the barrage of criminal charges leveled against the former Republican political operative. “What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment …The vernacular is to 'sing.'" No one would have blinked had the remarks come from Manafort’s defense attorneys. But the reason why the otherwise uneventful May pretrial hearing made headlines is because the biting commentary came from the presiding judge.

Joe Sbarra has had his breakthrough campaign with Burton Albion - and he does not want to be seen as "the one that's coming through" anymore. The 19-year-old academy graduate made 17 League appearances for the Brewers in the Championship last season, including four starts, after making his senior debut on the final day in 2016-17. Albion are heading into League One with a smaller squad size than they had in the second tier, with Nigel Clough saying youngsters like Sbarra, Ben Fox and Marcus Harness are likely to feature more in the coming months. That is a chance Sbarra is keen to seize, and his performances in a variety of positions in the Championship show his status as one of Albion's 'up-and-coming stars' could be consigned to the past if things go well this season and he can become an established first-team figure. "At the end of the day, I don't want to be classed as the one that's coming through - I want to be classed as a regular," said the Burton midfielder, who scored … [Read more...] about Sbarra: I don’t want to be classed as the one that’s coming through

Captain Kane proved England’s chief inspiration and match-winner in their opening game of the tournament against Tunisia on Monday, scoring both goals in their 2-1 success. The Tottenham striker’s display has earned him considerable plaudits but former skipper Robson hopes team-mates can match his standards. Robson, who played at three World Cups, told Press Association Sport: “Harry’s done well – he’s a top-class striker. “If you look back at any time England have done well in any of the competitions, they’ve always had a top goalscorer. “In 1990 when we did well and got to the semi-finals of the World Cup, we had Gary Lineker as well … [Read more...] about Kane’s a top-class striker but we can’t rely on just one player – Robson
