What a fantastic game of football. A lot of players should take a look at Steven Gerrard and see what it means to him to pull on that top and the passion he feels for that team. A man who could have played for ANYBODY for any amount of money... But no he didn't and it finally may pay off. Proud to see him as England Captain as well, A real ambassador for the game in our country, he is THE only choice and should have been for the last 10 years.
Day Out Online auction for signed Six Nations Shirt!

Heineken Cup: Harlequins make two changes for Scarlets trip Harlequins have announced the team to play the Scarlets in Round 6 of the Heineken Cup on Sunday, at Parc Y Scarlets (Kick-off 3:00pm – live on Sky Sports red button). There are two changes to the side that played Clermont Auvergne last week. Ollie Lindsay-Hague is named on the right wing in place of Charlie Walker who ruptured his pectoral muscle in the match; the winger had surgery this week and is expected to return in April. Sam Smith also misses out due to a dead leg picked up in training. Karl Dickson, who made his 100th appearance for the club last week partners Nick Evans in the half backs. Scrum-half Danny Care, who picked up a knock last week, will meet up with England on Monday. In an unchanged forward pack, Chris Robshaw, who was today announced as England Captain for the Six Nations, continues at openside flanker with Luke Wallace and Nick Easter completing the back row. Among the replacements, Tom Williams will look to make an imp ...

The player draft of the second Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) season is scheduled for July 14 in Colombo and is expected to contain several international players, including a strong South African contingent, according to the league's chief executive officer, Ajith Jayasekara. The league is scheduled between August 10 and September 7. "We have the entire South African squad with the exception of Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis lined up to take part," Jayasekara said. "Pakistan has also shown their intention to send their present lot of cricketers but the participation of most of their key players depends on whether their tour to Zimbabwe takes place." South Africa are due to tour Sri Lanka from July 20 to August 6 for five ODIs and three T20s and there is a possibility that members of the visiting team will stay back to participate in the league. "With the exception of England and India, players from all the other Test-playing nations have shown interest in participating in the league," Jayasekara said. "Ev ...
) The Ashes is a Test cricket series played between England and Australia since 1882. It is one of the most celebrated rivalries in international sport and is currently played biennially, alternately in England and Australia. Cricket being a summer sport, and the venues being in opposite hemispheres, the break between series alternates between 18 and 30 months. A series of "The Ashes" comprises five Test matches, two innings per match, under the regular rules for Test match cricket. If a series is drawn then the country already holding the Ashes retains them. The series is named after a satirical obituary published in a British newspaper, The Sporting Times, in 1882 after a match at The Oval in which Australia beat England on an English ground for the first time. The obituary stated that English cricket had died, and the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia.[1] The English media dubbed the next English tour to Australia (1882–83) as the quest to regain The Ashes.. During that tour a sm ...
(intro)George Lamming (1927 - 2005) was born in Carrington village, a small settlement about two miles from Barbados capital, Bridgetown. Lamming left Barbados for the nearby island of Trinidad when he was nineteen years of age, In the Castle of My Skin (1953) takes its title from a couplet in Derek Walcott’s juvenile: You in the castle of your I the swineherd2 Themes2 (Colonialism)2 The relationship between colonial powers and their colonies, and the effects that this relationship has on the inhabitants of the colonies, is the enduring concern of George Lamming. All of his works address these issues. As the first of his novels, In the Castle of My Skin appropriately anatomizes this dynamic as it bears upon a nine-year-old boy in one of Barbados' small rural villages. The colonizing nation does not exert its power on the colonized people solely by using raw force such as that at the disposal of governmental or military bodies. Colonizing powers, especially those of European and Islamic origin, also felt ...

sir jadeja jokes: Before 2012, Jadeja was seen as a player who had not delivered on his initial promise. Shane Warne had dubbed him cricket's rock star after the first IPL, but his performances in later years had been patchy. The upswing started in 2011 with a triple century against Odisha in the Ranji Trophy and a couple of triple centuries in 2012 against Gujarat and Railways. He followed this up with match-winning performances in Tests and one-dayers against England and Australia (dismissed Michael Clarke five out of six times). "Because Sir Donald Bradman has the same number of triple centuries in his career, people started prefixing 'sir' to Jadeja's name," says Karthik Laxman, a businessman who was among the pioneers of Sir Jadeja jokes. "The jokes had a sarcastic undercurrent initially, given that Jadeja wasn't quite the finished product then and had let the team down on a few occasions." The seeds of knighthood were sown in the 2009 T20 World Cup when he played a Test-like innings, scoring 29 runs ...
Channel 10 lands Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist to spearhead Big Bash commentary team Read more: has achieved another major coup by signing Adam Gilchrist to join Ricky Ponting as a Big Bash commentator. Two of Australia’s greatest cricketers will come together to add credibility to 10's foray into cricket after paying $100 million over five years to secure the Big Bash rights. It continues their cricket war with Channel Nine, which was forced to pay $450 million over five years to kept the international cricket rights in Australia, almost double what it paid under the previous seven-year agreement. An occasional commentator with Nine, Gilchrist is excited about working with his former captain. “It will be interesting to see if he’s still captain or not. We’ll have to tussle that one out,” Gilchrist said with a laugh. “Being such a close friend and team mate, his perspective on the game, his knowledge on the game, but also his personality and sense of humour, I’m looking forward to helping ...

Thanks to Times of India to published full one page news with comments of so called intellectuals about Mr. Sourav Ganguly ex Cricket player who will turns 41. I feel shame to see this news as a sportsman. I am fighting against the corruption of sports for the last 19 years. For this reason I was declared award against the top corrupt officials of Jadavpur University on 21/12/98 for non admission of my son in sports quota. I had written to honorable high court and supreme court to book PIL against top corrupt officials of J.U. and also had written all top VIP and others but no one did not take any action.-But I am grateful to then ex President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.

For the B'day Boy : 1. In 2007 T20WC final, lastover was given to a inexperienced bowler like JOGINDER SHARMA though the leading spinner at that time BHAJJI still had an over to go 2. In 2011 WC final he replaced ASHWIN with Sreesanth though the pitchwas suitable for the spinners 3. In WC2011 final he promoted himself before the inform YUVRAJ in the batting order. 4. He backed up young players like ROHIT and JADDU in their toughest times and now they are the ones who are contributing significantly.. 5. Even In CT Final while MORGAN and BOPARA were going all guns blazing, he gave the ball to ISHANT who was pretty expensive till then. Ishant turned the game completely in India's favor by dismissingboth Morgan and Bopara ofsuccessive deliveries.. He knows if anything goes wrong he would be blamed by the entire country but Really HATS OFF to you Sir \M/ Your desire to bear the criticism for the entire team ! To b successful be different think different.. And that's what MSD does.. ! Only those people who alwa ...

One of Captain Scott's final letters written from the south pole is made public to mark 101 years since his final diary entry on 29 March 1912.
Sam Bahadur is Bharat's Ratna Ashok K Mehta [ It's time for Government to make up with Sam Manekshaw by posthumously awarding him the Bharat Ratna. Sachin Tendulkar should propose his name. ] Around Independence Day each year, military heroes are remembered mainly due to the prodding by the media (one news channel did a special show, remembering the armed forces). Grudgingly the Government commemorates Vijay Diwas and only the Army celebrates the victory in Kargil, one of the most difficult and self-disadvantaged Infantry battles won by our soldiers. Yet warriors are forgotten quickly. Cricketers on the other hand, are adulated 24x7, making cricket the de facto national sport and its players the idols of the country. Government Ministers, officials and others yearn to be associated with the game and its heroes as it brings fame, money and power. Cricket has been besmirched with corruption and market forces have overwhelmed the game. A young first time politician and potential Foreign Minister became its f ...
The Ashes are starting up on Wed. Australia might be the underdog this time - a last minute coach, a bar room brawl, and a captain with a dodgy back. Currently, England are the Ashes holder having won in 2009 and 2011. Will they be able to pull a hat trick?

Asotasi departs head held high Roy Asotasi couldn't give 'The Gladiator' the thumbs down when Russell Crowe pleaded with the then NRL prop of the year to move from the security of the Bulldogs to the battling Rabbitohs. But now the former Kiwis captain has fought the good fight for seven years, reinforcements have arrived, particularly from the north of England –and the 31-year-old is finishing his playing days in Super League. Asotasi said on Monday he had signed a two-year deal with Warrington, a career and climate change that enthuses the Auckland-born front-rower months after being unable to rule out retirement. The 24-Test Kiwi, who will lead Samoa to the World Cup in October, was off-contract at the end of the year and although extending his stay at Redfern was a possibility Asotasi has opted for a more lucrative package offered by coach Tony Smith. Rival NRL clubs were also an option although Asotasi could not seriously contemplate playing against South Sydney. He may have cut his teeth as a firs ...

SATURDAY 13th of JULY This coming Saturday, 13 July, we start our pre-season schedule with a home game against an Aston Villa XI. On Saturday Gordon Cowans – who will be assisted this term by former Villa club captain Stiliyan Petrov – brings his Aston Villa development squad side to Enfield Town to open both sides' pre-season campaigns. Kick-off will be 3pm. Former England international Cowans played over 400 games for Villa and was in the side which won the old First Division, European Cup and European Super Cup in the 1980s. Former Bulgaria international Petrov played over 200 times for Celtic before making nearly 200 appearances for Villa. He announced his retirement from football in May this year, due to his continued fight against leukaemia. We wish him all the best for the future. Admission for all our pre-season games is £5 adults, £3 OAPs and £1 U16s.

CRICKET LOVERS ONLY ! 07-07-13 SUNDAY:::M.S.DHONI::: India Inc, which has its own share of controversies to cope with, can learn how to deal with high stress from the Indian captain. MS Dhoni, India's most successful cricket captain, is well on his way to be regarded as one of the greatest leaders the game has seen. In the past, people have attributed his success to luck, timing, good fortune and the like. But on closer analysis of his success, we see a clear pattern emerging. Dhoni's leadership style offers invaluable lessons to managers at all levels. 1. Uninhibited style: Hailing from a humble background, Dhoni never let this aspect hinder his style or behaviour. In fact, he managed to channelise this raw rustic energy to his on-field performances. He was never shy of expressing himself in any given situation. In a competitive corporate world, you are often judged by your past or stereotyped and it is important to maintain a positive ego at all times. 2. Managing egos: In a hierarchyled environment, Dh ...
Colombia are out but my standout player has been their captain less hype,pretty unknown but he set the tournament alight
Shame if Parker goes, our first England captain since the traitor iirc. Hard to get near our midfield now, even the bench is tough
Lions 2013: stunning victory and historic series success over Australia safeguards a treasured concept There are times when sport reaches into the soul. This was one of those moments. After two nail-biters, this was a night when the Lions fans were throwing hats into the air long before the final whistle, their joy distilled into mocking waves to Wallaby fans as they streamed away for an early exit. Really, giving the Aussies stick, what is the world coming to? The crowd had witnessed a display of great character and notable technical skills. The scrum was redoubtable, a source of points through penalties, all of which were taken by the master of the boot that is Leigh Halfpenny. He missed only a conversion to end up with 21 points, a test record in itself, finishing with 49 points for the series, another landmark eclipsing that set by his mentor on this tour, kicking coach, Neil Jenkins. The little man with grandeur in his being, Halfpenny has bestrode this series, not just accumulating points but playin ...
been saying this for a while... But he is so obviously the next England captain..hope he enjoys party and going home to newborn!

After Ashraful saga, I looked back at the very early evolution or timeline of Bangladesh cricket. Cricket was the poor cousin in the sport arena. Soccer, particularly due to Mohammedan and Abahoni, dominated Bangladesh until the millennium. The cricket league matches used to be in the open fields popularly known as outer stadiums. Outer stadiums had more sand than grasses. Net practice! Each club had their nets made of twine juts (made to knot the cows) against the wall at the south, closed to the hockey stadium. Not many people had looked at the poor cousin. Only the league semi-finals and the finals had the privilege of Dhaka Stadium. Our cricket has reached from the outer stadium to the Lord’s. It makes us proud when we see the gloves and helmet of Bulbul at Lord’s showcase as Bulbul scored century in the debut Test of Bangladesh. You can proudly reply to a visitor next to you while wondering, “Who is Bulbul”? Thanks God, Bulbul did not continue his soccer with Victoria Club, he switched to cr ...

Origins of the British Army ranks Field Marshal The rank evolved from the title of marescalci (masters of the horse) of the early Frankish kings. The importance of cavalry in medieval warfare led to the marshalship being associated with a command position. The modern military title of field marshal was introduced into the British army in 1736 by King George II, who imported it from Germany. In Britain the rank came to be bestowed only upon a few senior army officers, notably the chief of Britain's Imperial General Staff. General The King would be the commander but he might appoint a Captain General to command in his name - the first being George Monck appointed by Charles II in 1660. Later, when the title of Colonel became popular some Kings called their commanders Colonel General. The British Army stopped using the Captain part of the title by the Eighteenth Century leaving just General as the top commander. Latin generalis "something pertaining to a whole unit of anything rather than jus ...

Gatland where are your doubters now eh? Well done to the boys tonight. Centres have received some slack this week but they both performed well. Great result, great tour :) Well done to the lions
Genia proved he is average and couldn't deliver when it counted..pretty much goes for all the supposed world class players in the team.From the captain to Occonor to Beale..No scrum equals no chance... Quade would of been worse if he played. .. ARU need to have a good hard look at themselves...Oh Welll at least ABs are still the best in the world. .
Working away on some of the ancestors of my daughters, currently rounding up the Nickerson family of Provincetown, Massachusetts. Interestingly enough (since I don't believe in coincidence), the six greats grandfather of my girls, Captain Nathan Nickerson, died on July 7, 1849.
Lions test win great sexton not happy coming off but Jesus Australia can't scrum at all crazy but our Welsh hooker can't find is man in the lineout ... Honestly Davis kicked ok at times did nothing wrong but driscoll did the same last test... Sorry but gatland won upfront not behind simple stuff really. They rarely went for touch no need for lineouts and only when the game was won they used the ball with intent . My view but glad poc and bod get series wins
