It looked like being the dream start of new Spurs man Moussa Dembélé, after the Belgian opened the scoring on his debut for the Lilywhites. However, visitors Norwich had worked hard all afternoon and were rewarded for their graft with a late equaliser, courtesy of former Leeds man, Robert Snodgrass.

Euro 2012: The Quarter-Finals – England 0-0 Italy (Italy Win 4-2 On Penalty Kicks)

So, then, to Kiev and to the quarter-finals of the European Championships. It's the final match of the round this evening, featuring an Italian side that is something of a curates egg, excellent against Spain in matching them every inch of the way before being slightly underwhelming against Croatia and The Republic of Ireland, whilst England remain somewhat enigmatic, decent enough in fits and starts but also a little lucky in places and, for fifteen minutes against Sweden nine days ago, almost apocalyptically disorganised.

MSNsportsnet profiles Raymon Gaddis after his first start with the Union. Gaddis says of the start, "I had to get my feet under me just because I hadn't played in a game with the first team. I was excited and was trying to get the ball as much as possible those first couple of minutes to get my touches underneath me and get comfortable with the pace of the game.

West Ham United’s Faustian Pact Bares Its Teeth

A quite, considered hush fell over Upon Park about ten minutes into the second half of West Ham Uniteds match against Reading yesterday afternoon. As the visiting team dispatched their third goal, a penalty kick from Ian Harte after a clumsy tackle by Abdoulaye Faye in fifteen minutes either side of half-time and extended their lead to three-one, it was as if this was the collective moment of realisation for their supporters that, having been there or thereabouts for most of this season, the possibility of thereabouts being the sum total of their forty-six league matches us starting to become rather more of a likelihood.

I hope you're having a fine Monday because I'm not. I was earlier, but I'm not now. Probably because it dawned upon a couple of minutes ago that today is going to be a pivotal of the season. Because today is the day, we announced that Robin van Persie would be sold.

When we lost 2-1 against QPR a couple of weeks ago it was easy to throw around the C-word. No, not the one that so wonderfully describes John Terry, but complacency. After last night's 2-1 defeat to Wigan it's C-word time again: this time, Consistency.

It was a game that potentially could have been a banana skin. In the end we took the skin off the banana, ate the banana, then put the skin under Wolves who seemed unaware of the danger of a banana skin, thinking that oranges were the only fruit.

It was over as a contest in the first 11 minutes.

Wolves 0 – 3 Arsenal: Match Thoughts And Individual Analysis

This game was anti-climatic in some ways. As discussed in the preview, the fighting spirit of a relegation candidate could have been the only factor that made this a compelling contest. It was nowhere to be seen. Wolves started in a somewhat diffident manner and the events of the opening 10 odd minutes virtually killed the contest.

Arsenal won this evening's match against AC Milan at the Emirates in the Champions' League. But unfortunately, the Italians brought their four-goal advantage into this game and so our 3-0 win wasn't enough for us to go through.

The Gunners started with a real attacking intent as they had nothing to lose in this one.

Theo Walcott: The name to remember from day eight of Euro 2012

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

England winger Theo Walcott only played the final half hour against Sweden -- up from the final couple of minutes against Ukraine -- yet he played an integral part in taking his side from losing to winning in just 15 minutes. And then he got hurt.

Luckily it didn't seem too bad this time, but after playing his longest and arguably best season at Arsenal, there's the slightly menacing sound of a ticking clock that Walcott is trying very hard to ignore.

Mario Mandzukic did the lion's share of reducing the Republic of Ireland to a pile of sticky green goo last night, scoring an outrageous 'down on one knee' header to open the scoring after a couple of minutes before forcing Shay Given into conceding an incredibly cruel own-goal to finish off the scoring in the second half.

Match Of The Week: The FA Cup – AFC Sudbury 5-0 Ilford

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

The earliest rounds of the FA Cup could, for those participating, be considered to have a small amount of nuisance value about them. Clubs seeking to build a little rhythm to their league seasons find that the cup interjects every two or three weeks or so, and those that are successful can find themselves with a backlog of cancelled fixtures that can cause major headaches later on in the season.
