Google rip Spurs' defence apart

Wolfsburg deny Schurrle link


Bradford City, Middlesbrough dominate FA Cup Heroes & Villains

Bradford came back from two goals down to win 4-2 to send the Blues out of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge.
Championship side Middlesbrough produced a shock 2-0 win over Premier League champions Manchester City in the FA Cup.

It's been an unforgettable weekend in the FA Cup as Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham all perished to lower-league opposition. What better way to celebrate their demise than with a special fourth-round installment of Heroes and Villains?


There are no words for what Bradford City did this weekend. Beating Chelsea would have been heroic enough, but to beat them in their own stadium and to do it from two goals down simply beggars belief. Whether it will count as the greatest FA Cup...

Google poke fun at Tottenham's "lackadaisical" defence

Tottenham fans who are aggrieved at the relatively hefty amount of goals their side are shipping lately might want to give Google's dictionary a bit of a wide berth at the moment.

Some jaunty scamp out there (and we're going to go out on a limb and suggest it may have been an Arsenal fan in Google's tech department) has altered the definition of the word "lackadaisical" on the search engine's auto-dictionary function in order to have a cheeky dig at Spurs' porous back four!

Wolfsburg deny Andre Schurrle interest, Borussia Dortmund linked

ESPN FC's Craig Burley responds to Jose Mourinho's comments following their loss to Bradford City in the FA Cup, where he blames the squad rotation.

Wolfsburg have firmly denied reports linking them with a January move for Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle amid suggestions Borussia Dortmund could move for the Germany international in the summer.

Jose Mourinho said on Friday that Chelsea could be persuaded to cash in on Schurrle, 24, if they received "a phenomenal offer," and Wolfsburg -- who signed Kevin De Bruyne from the Blues a year ago -- were reported to be leading the race for his services.

Bild had reported on Monday that Schurrle's agent,...

Mario Balotelli wants Liverpool stay, agent Mino Raiola says

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says Mario Balotelli still has a future at the club.

Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola insists the forward is happy at Liverpool, telling Sky Sports News he will "strive to give the manager what he wants" rather than seek a move away from Anfield this winter.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Bolton in the FA Cup that he had not given up hope of Balotelli making the breakthrough on Merseyside, even though he has yet to open his league account for the club he joined from AC Milan for 16 million pounds in the summer.

Robin van Persie uncertain on Manchester United future

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says it is vital for the club to win the FA Cup, which represents their best chance of silverware this season.
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says it is vital for the club to win the FA Cup, which represents their best chance of silverware this season.

Robin van Persie has admitted uncertainty over his future at Manchester United and does not know if the club will keep him after his contract expires in 18 months' time.

Van Persie enjoys a close relationship with United manager Louis van Gaal, who made him Netherlands captain at last summer's World Cup in Brazil, but it looks unlikely that his future will be decided before the end of the season.

"It is not up to me," Van Persie said when asked about his future at Old Trafford. "For the moment, I...
