  1. KANE REFUSES TO RULE OUT SPURS EXIT Harry Kane has spoken about his frustration at so far failing to win trophies with Tottenham - and says he is prepared to leave if the team does not progress. "It's one of those things, I couldn't say yes, I couldn't say no. I love Spurs, I'll always love Spurs. But it's one of those things - I've always said if I don't feel we're progressing as a team or going in the right direction, then I'm not someone to just stay there for the sake of it," he exclusively told Jamie Redknapp. "I'm an ambitious player, I want to improve, I want to get better, I want to become one of the top, top players. "It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it's not a definite I'm going to stay there forever - but it's not a no either."
  2. The FA has announced results for the 2019/20 season will be expunged for non-league divisions below the National League and National Leagues North and South. The same applies to women's football below the Women's Super League and Championship, with no promotion and relegation, while grassroots football has been brought to a close for the season The FA will continue to assist and support the National League - just below Sky Bet League Two - as well as the National League South and National League North, to determine the outcome of their 2019/20 seasons as quickly as possible. The FA remains hopeful of being able to complete the men's and women's FA Cup campaigns, FA Trophy and FA Vase, while discussions are ongoing regarding what will happen with the National League, Women's Super League and Women's Championship. The statement read: "The NLS and the Women's Football Pyramid were able to build a consensus amongst their leagues and, where possible, aimed to create a consistent approach across all leagues, whilst taking into account the unique characteristics of each individual league. "As a result, The FA and NLS Steps 3 to 6 have reached a consensus that their 2019/20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS Steps 3 to 6, and no promotion to NLS Step 2. "With the Emirates FA Cup, Women's FA Cup, Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase 2019/20 all at advanced stages, the FA is reviewing all options as we seek to complete these competitions whenever it is safe and appropriate to do so. "Clubs involved are close to reaching a major final and, for those clubs and supporters, we will do all we can to keep the Wembley dream alive. "The FA will continue to assist and support the National League to determine the outcome of its 2019/20 season as quickly as possible. "We remain in consultation with the Barclays FA Women's Super League and FA Women's Championship board and clubs regarding the most appropriate way to complete the current season." The restructure of the National League will also now be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 season while the FA is seeking guidance on how the Government's financial support packages during the coronavirus crisis can be applied to football. "These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders," read the statement. "Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time. "Today's steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided, with the integrity of the leagues in mind." One of the clubs affected by the FA's decision is Radcliffe FC of The Northern Premier League. Their chairman Paul Hilton has sympathy for clubs on the verge of promotion: "The FA have had a really tough task and I don't envy them at all in having to make a decision that worked for the most amount of clubs and trying to preserve the most clubs they possibly can," he told Sky Sports News. "Some teams are going to be upset and some will be happy but the reality is it's about survival and having a league to play in next year. "There are clubs out there who will have performed really, really well, flying high at the top of their divisions and for them it'll be particularly hard and I have sympathy for them. "But from a football integrity perspective I don't see how we could allow a team to be relegated without playing their games in hand, it doesn't seem right. It does kind of make sense that this is the way to go. As soon as possible we want to be back playing football again and the community will want that and is going to need that after what everyone is going through. "Realistically ending the season now so we can properly plan for next season is the best thing to do."

  4. English football will not return until April 30 "at the earliest", it has been decided at an emergency meeting between Premier League clubs, but the 2019/20 season will be extended indefinitely. Officials from all 20 English top-flight clubs spoke over a conference call on Thursday morning to co-ordinate a strategy for completing the fixture list in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which has led to the suspension of almost all sport. It has been decided that the Premier League, the EFL and women's football will continue to be suspended until April 30 "at the earliest" The deadline for returning to action has also been extended indefinitely as part of an agreement with the FA. It is understood the discussions centred very much on the here and now, although clubs were shown modelling of how the schedule could look using a variety of possible resumption dates. Crucially, it is understood no clubs present raised the possibility of the 2019-20 season being declared null and void. West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady had suggested that was one solution in the event that games could not be played. No discussions were held around the possibility of the Premier League providing funding for the EFL at this meeting, it is understood. A statement after the meeting, published by the Premier League said: "The FA, Premier League, EFL and women's professional game, together with the PFA and LMA, understand we are in unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19. "We are united in our commitment to finding ways of resuming the 2019/20 football season and ensuring all domestic and European club league and cup matches are played as soon as it is safe and possible to do so. "We have collectively supported UEFA in postponing EURO 2020 to create space in the calendar to ensure domestic and European club league and cup matches have an increased opportunity to be played and, in doing so, maintain the integrity of each competition. "The FA's rules and regulations state that "the season shall terminate not later than the 1 June" and "each competition shall, within the limit laid down by The FA, determine the length of its own playing season". "However, The FA's Board has agreed for this limit to be extended indefinitely for the 2019/20 season in relation to Professional Football. "Additionally, we have collectively agreed that the professional game in England will be further postponed until no earlier than 30 Apri
  5. @Jimmy James Less than a year ago, the Indianapolis Colts had one of the best quarterback situations in the NFL. Andrew Luck was a true franchise quarterback. Jacoby Brissett was a top-end backup. The Colts were coming off a good season and looked like potential Super Bowl contenders. That changed fast. Luck retired out of the blue. Brissett struggled as a full-time starter. And on Tuesday the Colts made a bold move, agreeing to a deal with Philip Rivers to be their next quarterback. The contract is just for one year, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The deal is worth about $25 million according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Rivers has spent his entire career with the Chargers and will turn 39 in December. But the Colts were looking for a short-term upgrade with a roster that looked strong when Luck was still on the team.
  6. European leagues have committed to ending all domestic seasons by June 30, according to a statement released by UEFA. It is hoped that the current situation improves and resuming playing will be appropriate and prudent enough, with competitions finishing exactly a month after the original end date of May 30. The statement goes on to say there may be 'possible limitations or drops of current exclusive calendar slots, potentially resulting in the scheduling of domestic league matches in mid-week and scheduling of UEFA club competitions matches on weekends.' It also mentions possible adaptations of the 2020/21 Champions League and Europa League qualifying rounds which ordinarily begin in July for some teams

  10. Will be happy if the Aztecs don't end up in the East. The way they have played since the UNLV loss has me a bit worried.
