Despite adding Premier League talent, Newcastle overawed by Championship

Ayoze Perez
Newcastle United's Ayoze Perez could only look on as the Tyneside club lost its first match in the 2016-17 Championship season.

Football supporters are never more optimistic than before a season's opening match. The end of that first 90 minutes, though, can bring sincere deflation, a biting chill of reality. Thing are never as easy as they seem in midsummer. Matt Smith's goal to give Fulham a 1-0 win issued just such an icy blast for Newcastle United.

An estimated 7,000 Newcastle fans had travelled to Craven Cottage, filling the Putney End with a sea of black and white stripes plus plenty of bare chests. They began their...

Edwin van der Sar, 45, set to come out of retirement for VV Noordwijk

Edwin van der Sar once went more than 21 hours without conceding a Premier League goal.
Edwin van der Sar retired in 2011.

Former Dutch international goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar has announced that he is set to defy his creaking bones and come out of retirement at the grand old age of 45.

Van der Sar's last competitive appearance came for Manchester United in the 2011 Champions League final. His next will come in the second tier of the Dutch amateur leagues.

Fulham and Brentford engage in Twitter spat over goalkeeper loan

Richard Lee's loan move started a minor Twitter feud on Thursday.

While it's hardly going to go down as one of the great conflicts of our time, Championship rivals Brentford and Fulham became embroiled in a spiky Twitter spat Thursday that ended in a glorious, meme-fuelled victory for the former.

The kerfuffle began when Brentford announced the departure of their goalkeeper Richard Lee, who completed a loan move to Fulham on Thursday evening. Crucially, it was the Bees' description of Lee's new club that first riled the social media department over at Craven...

Zesh Rehman: Pahang hold edge over JDT in Malaysia Cup final

Zesh Rehman has already won two trophies in Malaysia with Pahang, including the Malaysian FA Cup.

Pahang's dominant record this season over Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) could play on the minds of the league champions in Saturday's Malaysia Cup final in Kuala Lumpur, according to Pahang's ex-Fulham defender Zesh Rehman.

Rehman is aiming for his third trophy in less than 12 months with defending Malaysia Cup champions Pahang and his seventh in three years in Asia. He's expected to partner fellow import Damion Stewart in central defence, the Jamaican international with whom he played for Queens Park...

Pahang plan to win Malaysia Cup semi to celebrate King's birthday

A few days after the euphoria of scoring a goal to help my team Pahang reach the semifinals of the Malaysia Cup, I can reflect on the journey that gives me a chance of winning a third trophy here in less than 12 months.

We'll face Kedah in the last four after a 3-2 aggregate victory over PDRM at Shah Alam Stadium. My goal tied things up 1-1 in the second leg before our super-sub Fauzi Roslan came up with a late winner.

Former Fulham star Zesh Rehman: Asia was my destiny, Malaysia is my home

Zesh Rehman has already won two trophies in Malaysia, including the Malaysian FA Cup.

At the age of 30, Zesh Rehman has already played for more clubs than most would in a lifetime. Currently at Malaysian Super League [MSL] side Pahang FA, the Pakistan international defender chose to return to Southeast Asia in 2010 after spells at Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Bradford (as well as a host of loan clubs) and has never regretted the decision.

"When I was first offered a contract to play in Southeast Asia, I hung up the telephone three times before realising it wasn't a prank," Rehman...
