Javier Hernández scores twice in Real Madrid victory at Celta Vigo

Javier Hernández scores twice in Real Madrid victory at Celta Vigo

Fresh from scoring the goal that took Real Madrid into the Champions League semi-finals, Javier Hernández struck twice as they beat Celta Vigo on Sunday to stay two points behind the La Liga leaders Barcelona. Hernández’s first effort put Real Madrid ahead after they had come from behind and the second from the player on loan from Manchester United completed the victory. Continue reading...

Tranmere Rovers’ 94-year stay in the Football League comes to sad end

Tranmere Rovers’ 94-year stay in the Football League comes to sad end

Wirral club pay a heavy price for loan lottery of their former manager Micky Adams as they slide into the fifth tier after losing 3-2 at Plymouth Hope may spring eternal but Mark Palios had to dig deep to find its source after Tranmere Rovers’ 94-year unbroken life in the Football League ended at Home Park with a 3-2 defeat by Plymouth Argyle. “Today it is devastating,” the chairman said, “but tomorrow it will not be disastrous.” One way and another the die was cast by Devon. Hartlepool’s 2-1 defeat of Exeter ensured their own safety and condemned Rovers and Cheltenham to what is about to be the National League and, to historic Football League members, is outer darkness. In 1987 they escaped that fate on the last day – by beating Exeter. But 20 years ago, for the third year running, they were in the play-offs to get into the Premier League. In February 2013 they were top of League One. With two games to go a year ago they were 19th in that division. Their fall has been swift and surprising, the more so for the arrival of Palios and his wife, Nicola, as owners last August. Continue reading...

Arsène Wenger frustrated as Arsenal fail to break down Chelsea

Arsène Wenger frustrated as Arsenal fail to break down Chelsea

Arsenal manager still waits for a first success against José Mourinho after his team’s attack is blunted by Chelsea’s defence This game had staggered into its final quarter-hour when Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla sensed his chance. Chelsea had been dragged out of position, distracted by Laurent Koscielny’s dart down the flank with the centre-half turned impromptu winger finding his team-mate on the edge of the area. Suddenly there was space for the Spaniard to exploit, rare time to measure a shot at goal. And yet the effort was wild, dragged horribly and wastefully beyond the far post. It summed up the entire occasion. Cazorla hung his head as Arsenal’s chuntering support emitted a collective groan. José Mourinho’s side have the knack of draining composure from opponents and from Arsène Wenger’s teams more often than most. Aside from a pair of air-kicks by Mesut Özil and Danny Welbeck in stoppage time, that Cazorla opportunity was as close as Arsenal came to puncturing the resolve of the champions-in-waiting. A goalless draw extended Wenger’s winless run against Mourinho to 13 games and, with it, the persisting doubts over this Arsenal team’s ability to reclaim the title for the first time since 2004 when the Invincibles held sway.

Lyon beat Reims to lead Paris Saint-Germain in French title race

• Lyon leapfrog PSG on goal difference after 4-2 away victory • Monaco stay in Champions League contention by beating Lens Lyon leapfrogged Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1 on Sunday with a 4-2 away win against Reims that put them ahead of the champions, who had beaten Lille 6-1 on Saturday, on goal difference. It took Lyon six minutes to establish a 2-0 lead with goals from Corentin Tolisso and Alexandre Lacazette. An own-goal by Maxime Gonalons allowed Reims back into the game but Clinton Njié quickly added a third to restore the two-goal advantage. Continue reading...

Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino feels the love in draw at Southampton

Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino feels the love in draw at Southampton

• ‘It means a lot’ says manager after Spurs fans salute him at St Mary’s • Pochettino pleased by Nabil Bentaleb-Federico Fazio spat They probably acted more out of a desire to rile Southampton supporters than joy at their own team’s performance, which was again patchy, but Spurs’ fans staged their first mass display of affection for Mauricio Pochettino here and the manager said it was significant. Every time a section of Southampton fans booed the Argentinian upon his first return to St Mary’s after defecting to Tottenham Hotspur last summer, the visiting supporters loudly celebrated their relationship with their rivals’ ex. Pochettino reckons it showed the Spurs faithful believe he is taking the club in the right direction and this draw did at least keep them above his former side. Not that he, unlike the travelling fans, wanted to rub it in. Continue reading...

Brendan Rodgers plans Liverpool development after a write-off season

Brendan Rodgers plans Liverpool development after a write-off season

• Manager may have to target players who want to buy into long-term plan • ‘Champions League looks unlikely but we can still get quality starters in’ • Liverpool pay for lack of firepower in goalless draw at West Brom Brendan Rodgers concedes that Liverpool’s impending failure to qualify for the Champions League could lead to a double penalty as top-grade transfer targets are unlikely to head for Anfield and the dubious lure of Europa League football. The Liverpool manager refused to dismiss reports that talks have been held with Memphis Depay, the Holland and PSV Eindhoven forward, as he seeks to replace last season’s 52-goal contribution from Luis Suárez and Daniel Sturridge that catapulted the club back into Europe’s elite on the back of amassing 101 Premier League goals.

John Carver vows to fight on but pressure mounts on Newcastle caretaker

John Carver vows to fight on but pressure mounts on Newcastle caretaker

• Carver subjected to abuse by angry fans during 3-2 loss to Swansea • ‘It was personal stuff. I’m not going to stand there and be abused’ • John Carver urges protesting Newcastle fans to get behind the team • Carver: Newcastle is the hardest job in football but I love it John Carver looked close to breaking point. Minutes earlier his makeshift team had surrendered to a seventh straight defeat and he had been forced to retreat deep inside the home dugout during a second half in which stewards permitted two hysterical fans stationed near the technical area to subject him to a cascade of abuse. “The club has to do something about it,” said Newcastle United’s head coach as he stood, clearly distressed and almost shaking with emotion, in a corridor deep inside St James’ Park. “It was personal stuff. It’s quite difficult to actually stand in that technical area and get abused the way I was abused without any protection from the sidelines. I’m not going to stand there and be abused. I’m not accepting it. No one should have to put up with that. We have stewards but some of them just watch the game.” Continue reading...

The season has been another extraordinary journey. Earlier in the afternoon their head coach, Slavisa Jokanovic, had been downbeat after the 2-0 win at Brighton that set in motion a dramatic train of events in which both Middlesbrough and Norwich City failed to bridge the Watford gap of four points at the top of the Championship.

Chris Ramsey: QPR need two wins and maybe a draw to stay in Premier League

Chris Ramsey: QPR need two wins and maybe a draw to stay in Premier League

• ‘We must hold our own’ during visits to Liverpool and Manchester City • West Ham’s Sam Allardyce still in the dark over future • Charlie Austin blows penalty in goalless draw Chris Ramsey took a deep breath and sighed. The QPR manager had just been asked what his team needed to stay in the Premier League and he gave a grim prognosis. “We need to win two of the four games left and probably draw another,” Ramsey said. On the face of it, seven points from 12 would appear moderately achievable – but then you look at their next two fixtures. A trip to Anfield is followed by a visit to Manchester City. As Ramsey said, they are cup finals but only six points can be earned after that. It is now or never for the west London club. Continue reading...

Hull’s Steve Bruce urges players to stay calm after defeat of Crystal Palace

• Manager praises Dame N’Doye’s ‘courage’ after double strike • ‘We can get four points and drag Newcastle into relegation equation’ Anyone who envies the life of a Premier League manager should have been in a corridor under Selhurst Park’s Holmesdale End after Saturday’s match. A win for Hull City had kept them just above the relegation places but the result could, if the referee, Mark Clattenburg, had seen key incidents differently, have been a draw or even a defeat that would have left them in the bottom three. Steve Bruce talked of his frustration as “fine margins” went against his Hull team in previous matches, the misery of wasted chances and the unseen efforts that went into the deadline-day signing of Dame N’Doye, the striker who contrived an astonishing miss before scoring twice to settle the match. Alan Pardew, whose team theoretically had had little to play for, looked morose and confessed he was bemused by Crystal Palace’s non-performance even though he could be forgiven for sitting back and planning where to spend Palace’s next share of TV riches.
