Return to Hull reveals how much has changed at Newcastle in a year

Newcastle manager John Carver spoke ahead of his side's match against Hull City on Saturday about turning around the run of form that his side have shown in recent weeks.

Last season's trip to the KC Stadium was no place for the faint-hearted for anybody connected with Newcastle United. If anybody needs a reminder, this was the day that Alan Pardew flicked his head in the direction of David Meyler in a foolhardy moment of madness that left him fined and banned.

The history books tell us that the Magpies recorded a 4-1 win over Hull City and it left them in eighth place in the table. If only that had told the whole story, though; certainly in the case of Alan Pardew,...

Tottenham need someone to take burden off Kane, Eriksen

Will Pato end up in the Prem? Is Adebayor moving to PSG? Gab Marcotti responds to the latest transfer rumors.

With only a couple of days left until the end of the transfer window and precious few signs of any late deals in the offing, it looks as if Tottenham will have to get by for the rest of the season on its current squad. It's far from ideal, but manager Mauricio Pochettino is going to have to find a way of making a little go a long way. Or at least far enough.

February is shaping up to be almost as busy as January. Three big Premier League games against Arsenal, Liverpool and West Ham and two tough...

Football is DR Congo's focus before Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal

DR Congo qualified for the quarterfinals with a 1-1 draw in their final group game vs. Tunisia.

BATA, Equatorial Guinea -- Villa Celotti is an unusual team hotel. It is situated a five-minute walk from Bata's airport terminal and has the feel of a holiday camp, with small, prefabricated chalets sitting several rows deep, spreading back from a mediocre stretch of beach.

It is a somewhat seedy, discomfiting place and hardly the venue in which you would expect to find a professional sports team. For the 23 players and 15 backroom staff from Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), though, the...

Inter Milan seeking tonic for recent struggles in visit to Sassuolo

Inter Milan's President Erick Thohir has backed Roberto Mancini to turn around the club's fortunes after a difficult season.

Inter went down by a last minute goal against Torino last weekend in a game they dominated. Manager Roberto Mancini has only won twice in nine games with his team, but this weekend they face Sassuolo. This is a fixture in which the Nerazzurri have enjoyed a lot of success over the past two seasons. Will the new Inter coach follow in the footsteps of predecessor Walter Mazzarri and decimate the underdogs, or will this prove another tough task?

On the face of it, this game suggests that is the perfect...

Paul Pogba beaten in 'shot challenge' by Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri

"I'm destroying you!" was the scream from Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri as he showed he has not lost his touch in a training ground contest with Paul Pogba on Thursday.

The pair stayed behind after training had finished, challenging each other to find the back of a small goal from 25 yards, without the ball touching the ground first.

Allegri came out on top of the contest 5-2, taking visible pleasure in beating a player he values at 100 million euros.

Juventus posted a video of the "shot challenge"...
