Wenger expecting Arsenal striker to improve Wenger expecting Arsenal striker to improve
- September 11, 2017

The collapse of Thomas Lemar's move from Monaco to North London is believed to have stopped any deal going through, but Wenger doesn't believe it will take long for Sanchez to win back the fans. Danny Welbeck nodded in with Arsenal's first attack and laid on a second for Lacazette, before finishing again himself after the break. Alexandre Lacazette linked up superbly with Welbeck and Ozil in a fluid front three, in which he played on the right for the majority, and gave ... (more...)

- September 10, 2017

If evacuation orders for parts of downtown Miami aren't enough of an incentive to leave, city officials are also telling people to leave downtown high-rises because of construction cranes. A construction crane collapsed and fell onto a nearby building as Hurricane Irma blasted South Florida with hurricane-force winds. "All we care about is the safety of everyone right now", the building's developer, PMG, said in a statement. (more...)

- September 10, 2017

However, Liverpool eventually triggered Keita's release clause, worth £48m, and paid an additional fee on top of that to ensure the Guinea midfielder ends up at Anfield. "He's been doing this for two or three years, with different clubs in different leagues, but he's still a young boy", the German coach explained. Keita was also one of the most impressive players in the Bundesliga last season and played a big role in terms of helping the relatively unknown Leipzig claim a second place ... (more...)

Tyreek Hill taunts Patriots after scoring 75-yard TD Tyreek Hill taunts Patriots after scoring 75-yard TD
- September 10, 2017

Possibly more impressive than the play itself is how it came to be called. It appears that Hill forgot to make that distinction, and instead of a nice return by one of the fastest players in the National Football League, the Chiefs were stuck with the ball on their own 8-yard line after a holding penalty was called.

Arsenal brush Bournemouth aside to return to winning ways
- September 10, 2017

He's a team player and the coaches love him. Welbeck's brace inspired Arsenal to a much-needed victory following two successive defeats heading into the global break - including a 4-0 loss at Liverpool. "I don't know why [there were jeers]". What was more significant though, was that the Gunners successfully bounced back from successive league defeats with Danny Welbeck's brace clinching a comfortable win against a Bournemouth side yet to pick up a point.

He was near the bottom of the depth chart in the defeat, playing just six snaps.

Cornerback Ronald Darby leaves Eagles' opener with gruesome foot injury Cornerback Ronald Darby leaves Eagles' opener with gruesome foot injury
- September 10, 2017

The best hope is Darby suffered a subtalar ankle dislocation without fracture and could come back this season.

Following a brutal first half in which the Houston Texans were booed off the field, Bill O'Brien opted to make a change at quarterback. Watson was going to take over as the Texans' starter at some point this season. (more...)

The world cup victor has won 3 FA cups with Arsenal since joining in 2013 but has been far away from receiving a Premier League medal. Wenger was heavily criticised for leaving Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac on the bench for the 4-0 defeat away at Anfield and started both players in a game which Arsenal never looked like losing.

Against a backdrop of mucho patriotic images and stuffed full of worthless platitudes like, "We believe in unity, we believe in justice, we believe in freedom;" "Love conquers all, and with that, we can keep America great;" and "Not just for the red white and blue we don on our porches, but what it stands for", I was underwhelmed.

- September 10, 2017

Palmer's pass on 3rd-and-12 at the Cardinals' 42-yard line appeared to be a miscommunication, as no Cardinal was in the vicinity. The Detroit Lions did not get their season off to a great start. But what do our Cards Wire writers expect from the Cardinals this season? This year the onus falls on Ameer Abdullah , who has been productive when he plays but hasn't been able to stay on the field much because of injuries his first two seasons. (more...)

Guardiola: Sancho shook hands on new Man City deal before joining Dortmund
- September 10, 2017

We've got money to invest again. We shouldn't forget that two years ago (before a certain Leroy arrived) we'd be concerned that Jesus Navas' involvement would limit the team going forward, but things have changed. "Before going to the States, he decide, or his manager decides, I am not going to sign the contract", Guardiola said. When I saw the draw, I thought it was the flawless opportunity. (more...)
