Premier League, Football League and more: Saturday clockwatch – live! | Alan Smith

Eight 3pm BST kick-offs in the Premier League Email alan.smith@theguardian.com | Tweet: @alansmith90 Saturday scoreboard: the day’s goals around Europe League tables: check out the latest standings 11.02am BST Traditionally you are allowed to glance – though not take too much notice – at the league table after three games and as things things stand, despite the season very much still in the embryonic stages, there is already a game which appears critical for potential strugglers. Aston Villa followed up their opening day win at Bournemouth with two narrow defeats but if they were to succumb to a rudderless and defensively disastrous Sunderland today, the C word (not that one, silly. Crisis!) may not be far from the lips of some on the Holte End. Dick Advocaat’s team had an horrific start to the season, enduring hammerings from Leicester and Norwich, but the picked up their first point against Swansea last weekend only to concede three against League Two opposition in the Capital One Cup. Advocaat has one helluva job on his hands to transform them into a team capable of keeping a clean sheet. Continue reading...

Premier League updates on the early kick-off at St James’ Park Email barry.glendenning@theguardian.com | tweet @bglendenning Saturday scoreboard: the day’s goals around Europe 1.24pm BST 34 min: On the edge of the penalty area, Alexis Sanchez attempts to thread the ball through to Theo Walcott, but his pass is cleared. It was the conclusion of a move in which various Arsenal players spent quite some time trying to Arsenal their way through the Newcastle defence in that typically frustrating way of theirs. Can you imagine the giant mushroom cloud of pompous and entitled rage over the red half of North London all the way through the international break if they fail to win (or somehow contrive to lose) this match? 1.18pm BST 32 min: Tim Krul dives to his right to save a swerving Alexis Sanchez shot from distance. He fails to hold on to the ball and parries it a yard or two in front of him. Sprinting in to follow up, Theo Walcott somehow contrives to blast the ball wide with the goal gaping. It was a narrow ish angle, but he really should have scored. Continue reading...

NRL: Melbourne Storm v North Queensland Cowboys - live!

NRL: Melbourne Storm v North Queensland Cowboys - live!

All the live action from the top-eight Storm v Cowboys clash Join the conversation: email | richard.parkin.casual@theguardian.com; twitter | @rrjparkin 11.41am BST A few ppl with axes to grind over that first half refing performance, but then it wouldn’t be footy without the odd whine, would it. I do love a take that screams “only my side has ever been robbed in the history of sport”. Is Ben Cummins a FT ref? Time was not off & a player offside when tap taken. Cows getting screwed & not even Sept yet! #NRLStormCowboys I can't at all agree with that NO TRY ruling against the @nthqldcowboys That was a soft call #NRLStormCowboys 11.34am BST Your thoughts on that first forty? Seems pretty straightforward, Storm worthy of their lead, ne c’est pas? I don’t speak French so feel free to write in and correct that instead, if that’s what you enjoy on a Saturday night. The Cowboys’ aggrieved perhaps that a great passage of play was chalked out due to a offensive foul in the lead up. But the refs arguably on the money with that call. 11.29am BST JT continues the conversation as the players leave the field; he’s debating the finer points of offside with ref Cummins, the NQ co-captain certainly isn’t too happy about something. To be fair though, it’s been that classic story of non-capitalisation from the Cowboys. They had the lion’s share of possession early on and didn’t make it count; the Storm went up the other end and did. 11.25am BST 39 min: No try! Cronk taken out by one of the Cowboy defenders in the build up, and the video ref has adjudged that it affected the outcome. Hard on JT and friends, but perhaps fair. Now they’re scrambling to defend their own line with less than a minute to play in the first half. Temperature rising - Now JT’s barking at the ref. Some classic “But sir” feedback, but all for nought. 11.23am BST 37 min: Storm pinged for a forward pass about 20m out; a let off for the Cowboys. What can they muster? Well, Lowe goes down injured in the tackle, but then what follows looks pretty amazing - Coote beats his man outside, before Thurston puts a great kick cross field to pick out one of his wide man.. Are they over the Cowboys? The visiting fans loved it, Captain Whistles’ going upstairs again.. 11.19am BST 35 min: No try!

Sideshow Bob
Kevin Proctor looks upset, he was just millimetres away from an extra four points. This could get ugly - the Storm definitely look in the mood tonight; Cowboys need to get in the sheds and regroup before this gets away from them. 11.17am BST 34 min: Suddenly Koroibete is everywhere, he’s making an impressive dash from dummy half. Cronk isolates Winterstein 1v1 with Duffy with a lovely grubber, the ball falls loose and the Storm reckon they’ve grounded it inside the back try line.. Ref Cummins goes upstairs.. 11.14am BST 32 min: Koroibete is causing trouble out wide with some powerful running, he combines well with Munster, as suddenly its the Cowboys on the back foot. They concede the penalty attempting to slow down the play the ball. Duffy lines up Coote 1v1, he looks for all money like he’s heading for the corner - but an absolute trysaving tackle from the former Penrith man! Great work, Coote. Hopefully his teammates take inspiration from that. 11.12am BST 30 min: From almost in front Smith adds the extras. The Cowboys with it 30m out. Some pretty standard one-out running here, as they grind towards halfway and shuffle a dribbling kick that’s comfortably dealt with. 11.10am BST 28 min: A nice angled run from Smith and he puts Bromwich comfortably through a hole. Nothing too fancy, just good angles. Cowboys will be aggrieved to be pointless here. 11.08am BST 27 min: I wasn’t joking about these greasy conditions - I’d hate to see the set-completion stats, because both sides are guilt of just dropping the pill here. That said, now something’s on.. wait a minute.. 11.07am BST 25 min: Oh lordy, a shocking fumble from Will Chambers from the dropout and he’s put it down cold. Nobody within cuckoo of him - if we were at the ‘Gee we could all shout ‘Footsteps!’ for that one. Poor hands there, no Wilt Chamberlain, is our man from Gove. 11.05am BST 22 min: Now that’s better, a much better kick to the corner; weighted perfectly and the Cowboy’s fullback is forced across the deadball line in his own ingoal. Line drop out, and the Storm start to gather their first passages of momentum. They’re probing and scheming, and now a ricocheting ball forces another drop out. 11.02am BST 19 min: Showing my age but from hair-view alone does anyone else think Granville looks deceptively like Nathan Hindmarsh? Not a day goes past that I don’t miss Nathan Hindmarsh. Cronk puts a kick through, not the best from Storm’s halfback. A pretty nondescript set of six from the Cowboys in return though, so the Storm back with it. 10.59am BST 17 min: No mistake from the skipper from right in front, and against the run, the hosts take the lead. 10.57am BST 14 min: Some mixed imagery there - would mediaeval torturers have existing in a world with chips? What even does the expression spitting chips mean? Gosh, the English language can be daft sometimes. Storm with it about 30m out, massive tackle by Granville - no, Captain Whistle, you can’t pin that, that’s a cracking tackle. Sure, the players gone ‘over the axis’ but that’s rubbish. 10.54am BST 10 min: And, I made myself one promise tonight, and glad to report it’s taken less than ten minutes for me to break it. No mispelling of JT’s name, said I; can’t do, said fingers. It really is unconventional business, this John-athan caper. Can we just all sign off on JT? Okay. 10.50am BST 8 min: Half a gap by Jonathan T, he’s just 12m out; but from the next play the Cowboys have spilled it. A let off - put that one down to some strong Storm defence and some treacherous conditions. Light drizzle really is the enemy of ball possession. 10.48am BST 6 min: A third consecutive penalty for the visitors, they need to make this early dominance count. JT and Thompson combine ominously but the Storm rightside defence is equal to the task. Coote with a well-weighted bomb, and the Cowboys pin Koroibete inside his in-goal. Line drop out. 10.46am BST 5 min: Not the most impressive from the Cowboys - JT ends a directionless passage of play with a crossfield kick - Winterstein looks to capitalise but he’s comfortably dealt with. Storm hang on. 10.45am BST 3 min: The Cowboys find themselves about 15m out on just the 2nd; a real opportunity - but they’ve knocked it forward. The moment seems to be lost but Captain Whistle (Ben Cummins) has penalised the Storm for being inside the 10. 10.42am BST 1 min: And we’re underway - Melbourne kick off, the Cowboys hold the first pill and send a series of reasonably straight-batted hit ups. Early look at JT who gives a skittish 10-15m run, before Coote puts it on the boot. The Storm now about 30m out from their own line. 10.40am BST As always, feel free to shoot your observations (learned or otherwise), witticisms or general quips to get involved in the conversation - either via the twitters @rrjparkin or the emails. Failure to do so will see me trawl the internet aimlessly bringing you whatever unrelated content has the misfortune to fall into my indiscriminate gaping maw. 10.36am BST G’day - Richard Parkin in the chair here at Guardian HQ. Will be on to the action for Storm v Cowboys as soon as I’ve caught my breath from Knights v Bulldogs! A frenetic and frenzied finish to that one, and wasn’t it great to see Kurt Gidley cross the line in his 250th game; shame his teammates couldn’t quite snare the win for him. Two competition points for the Dogs therefore, as they leapfrog (albeit possibly temporarily) the Storm into 6th spot on the ladder. 10.22am BST The Storm will be looking to make amends for a frankly awful showing against the Knights, and will be hoping to keep their slender chances of a top four spot alive. The Rabbitohs’ loss last night aids this, but late heroics this afternoon from an aging menace, Michael Ennis, has put Cronulla in the box seat. 8.02am BST Hi all - hope this finds you well if your respective lives this sunny/gloomy/windy Saturday afternoon/Friday wee hours.* Richard Parkin will be in the chair shortly at Guardian HQ to take you through all the live action from this important top-eight showdown between Melbourne Storm and North Queensland Cowboys. Defending premiers South Sydney will attempt to hang onto a top four spot against Brisbane without Greg Inglis. Hope remains high at Redfern because of the return of Issac Luke but despite Luke being arguably the hooker of 2015, Inglis remains a more important cog in the Rabbitohs machine. Since 2013 the Rabbitohs are 6-6 when Inglis is absent from the cardinal and myrtle. The Rabbitohs looked lifeless when Inglis hurt himself late in last week’s loss to the Bulldogs and were soundly beaten by also-rans Wests Tigers and Penrith in their last two games sans their skipper.
