    • lucyweiweiwei has written a new blog article "Having won the Dutch national time-trial jersey championship in 2015" Today

      Lizzie Deignan will start Saturday’s second stage of La Course by Authentic Allen Barbre Womens Jersey Le Tour de France with a chance of victory after finishing second to Annemiek van Vleuten at the summit finish on the Col d’Izoard. However, given the time-trial format of the stage in Marseille she may struggle to close her 43sec deficit on the Dutch rider.Having won the Dutch national time-trial championship in 2015 and this year taken a time-trial stage in the Giro Rosa, Van Vleuten has a stronger time-trial pedigree than Deignan, who does not profess to any particular liking for the discipline, and over the 22km in Marseille she may find 43sec is enough, with the third rider Elisa Longo Borghini set to start 1min 29sec back.The format is unique, with the leading women from the Col d’Izoard starting according to their time deficits in what amounts to a handicap event. It meant Van Vleuten, like the other riders, wanted to get as much time in hand as possible. “I wasn’t sure what margin I would need for the pursuit on Saturday, so I thought I had better attack early,” she said. “I was suffering from the altitude, so http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ALSHON_JEFFERY_JERSEY.html I wanted to test my legs.”Van Vleuten had not considered herself a specialist climber before the Olympic Games in Rio but – like Deignan – the training she had put in to improve at the discipline last year has had a long-term effect. In Rio, she suffered a sickening crash when in a winning position, which left her with heavy concussion and three broken bones in her lower back but she recovered quickly.Deignan spent the bulk of the ascent of the col at the front of the peloton setting a pace sufficient to whittle it down to about 30 riders by the time the serious climbing started at Arvieux, 10km from the top. The Yorkshirewoman had been set the task of reducing the group’s numbers on behalf of her Boels–Dolmans team-mate Megan Guarnier but not far after the village, it became clear the American was struggling.The British national champion then changed tack, waiting Authentic Andrew Norwell Womens Jersey to see if any other riders were interested in setting the pace. She returned to the front when it became clear the majority were willing to wait. Deignan continued to maintain a steady rhythm until almost five kilometres to go, when Van Vleuten made her first move, attacking strongly from behind.That split the group, with Kasia Niewiadoma, the Ovo Women’s Tour winner, among those unable to hang on. Deignan http://www.officialpanthersnflauthentic.com/Nike-Andy-Lee-Jersey.html responded strongly, together with Shara Gillow of the FDJ team, and Wiggle-High5’s Borghini. A second attack from Van Vleuten was a classic move, coming shortly after the initial acceleration to soften up the opposition, and this time Deignan had no response.It set up a classic pursuit match between two riders with contrasting styles: Deignan the all-rounder reliant on maintaining a steady cadence versus Van Vleuten, the punchier specialist climber, who had been viewed by Deignan as the biggest threat on last year’s ascent-packed Olympic road race course.Deignan first disposed of Gillow but was unable to make up the 150m gap Van Vleuten had opened. She closed briefly as the road levelled just before http://www.officialredwingsauthentic.com/authentic-14-gustav-nyquist-jersey.html the massive rock pinnacles of the Casse Déserte but the final kilometre at 10% gradient favoured Van Vleuten, who said she had never climbed an ascent of this size on French roads before.They parked their motorhomes in laybys on the steep slopes of the Col d’Izoard five days early to be assured of a prime spot to witness their Tour de France heroes ride past. On Sunday, they got us as the warm-up act.Deckchairs out, barbecues lit – and with occasional bursts of dodgy Europop – they willed on a ragtag river of 12,200 amateur cyclists testing their mettle on the mountainsides of what will today be the route of the 18th stage of the Tour.The Etape du Tour – a mass-participation event offering amateur cyclists the chance to race over a full stage – has been growing rapidly since 1,700 took part in 1993. This year, it took two hours to get the last rider through the start line in the alpine city of Briançon.By the time the race reached what will be the Tour’s first ever summit finish on the Izoard some 110 miles later organisers Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) estimated that riders were stretched across 40 miles of road. There was rarely more than a metre or two between us; leave half a handlebar’s width and someone’s front wheel would soon nudge in.This terrible exigency, which establishes the border of the difficult and the terrifying Tour director Jacques Goddet on the Izoard
      Villages on the route, bedecked with bike-related art, seemed to be practising for the real thing. On Thursday 20 July the crowds will be many people deep but four days early they still mustered impressive support. Around half of the field were French and a quarter British. A piece of encouragement scrawled on the road seemed to sum it up: “Allez Bardez … et papa.”Shouts of “allez”, “courage” and “bravo” pushed us up the hills, while children stretched out their hands for high fives. The most welcome shout on an intensely hot day, though, was “douche!”. A nod brought a slosh of icy mountain stream water down the back. Part agony, part bliss: much like the Etape itself.

    • lucyweiweiwei has written a new blog article "The diligent spectators kept their jersey umbrellas furled" Yesterday

      Padraig Harrington stands on the 17th fairway at Royal Birkdale, a http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com/authentic-bart-starr-jersey.html five wood and the destiny of the 2008 Open in his hands. He strides towards his ball, checks, and then stares intently at the pin. The process is repeated a second time, then a third. Given the high stakes – ripping a 272-yard shot over a praetorian guard of bunkers and on to the narrowest of greens would be dicey enough without the pressure of leading by two shots on the penultimate hole – he needs to be sure.But as he sets his stance, the BBC’s commentary team fear Harrington’s boldness is veering into recklessness, especially in the 40mph winds lassoing at his trousers.“Perhaps he doesn’t know where he is?” suggests Ken Brown. “He’s two Allen Robinson Jersey ahead. This is a bit of a risk into this wind, don’t you think?”Then Peter Alliss pipes up. “I would have thought so. He is aiming into the grandstand virtually on the left,” he says. “Two shots ahead …”Another former pro, Wayne Grady, spots a further problem: “There’s danger here on the right too.”But Harrington knows his playing partner Greg Norman, who is three behind, has a chance of an eagle on the par-five 17th. Understandably he wants to win this thing himself, not leave it on the clubs of others.He sets. He strikes. The contact is perfect – so perfect his caddie shouts “great shot” while the ball is in the air, something he does once in a blue moon – and as it lands off the bank and rolls tenderly to within four feet of the flag, Birkdale bellows its approval.Meanwhile Authentic Charles Mann Womens Jersey in the living room of Harrington’s coach, Bob Torrance, the phone starts to ring. “Dad,” says his son Sam, the former Ryder Cup player and captain. “I have just seen the best golf shot of my life.”Nine years on, Harrington remembers every microsecond like it happened yesterday. “I was facing all the trouble in the world on that shot but I was feeling bulletproof,” he says. “I had played well all day, I had swung the club well. And the five wood was my favourite club so I was extremely confident.”The rest is history. Harrington sank his eagle putt and his rivals’ hopes, to claim his second successive Claret Jug, four shots clear of Ian Poulter in second.Padraig Harrington with the Claret Jug in 2008. Photograph: Andrew Redington/Getty Images This week Birkdale hosts the Open for the first time since Harrington’s glorious triumph. Yet http://www.washingtonredskinsauthorizedstore.com/charley-taylor-jersey in the intervening years the landscape for golf has changed, at least in Britain. The way viewers consume all sports – frequently on the go rather than on the sofa – is shorter and snappier. Participation levels and viewing figures for golf in the UK are on the slide. Even those in charge accept they need to attract a younger, more diverse audience and find a way to retain people whose work and family commitments mean they are not able to spend four hours on a course.If there is an edge anywhere, McIlroy Authentic Antwon Blake Youth Jersey said, it may be in “the mental side of the game and being maybe a little bit better in that aspect than the rest of the guys”. This, he explained, “is really about knowing yourself and knowing what works for you and what thoughts work and what techniques work”. This rings true. Especially at the Open. In the decade since Woods last won a major, the average age of the Open champion has been 37.During that time, McIlroy and Louis Oosthuizen were the only players under 30 to win the Claret Jug. The rest – Padraig Harrington, Stewart Cink, Darren Clarke, Ernie Els, Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson, and Henrik Stenson – were all in their late 30s or early 40s.So if you are looking for likely winners, you could start by skimming through the players’ DOBs. But then, it is only a theory. And the day before the tournament starts, theories are a lot easier to come by in Birkdale than tickets, and a deal cheaper too. Almost everyone here has got one, about how the wet ground will give the advantage to the long-hitters, or that the course suits those who can shape the ball left to right, or the players willing to compromise their swing to keep it low beneath the wind. On Wednesday, the storm finally broke around 6pm. We will need to wait a while longer yet to see which is right, and who is the winner.A bullish Rory McIlroy has insisted his Open Championship prospects have been understated, including by bookmakers, with the four-times major winner adamant he can rip up the form book.McIlroy begins his pursuit of a second Open after a run of three missed cuts in four events. Two of them, at the Irish and Scottish Open tournaments, came in his last two starts. An unusual year has seen equipment change and injury, both mitigating factors in his slide to No4 in the world.

    • lucyweiweiwei has written a new blog article "Meanwhile in the living room of Harrington’s jersey coach" Yesterday

      The rain came late to Royal Birkdale, hours after the weathermen http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Tracy_Mcgrady_Jersey reckoned it would. They said the storm that swept across the south on Tuesday night would arrive around 11 in the morning. Then they pushed it back to two in the afternoon, then again to five in the evening.The diligent spectators kept their umbrellas furled and their anoraks packed through the morning and afternoon, while the air all around grew thick and sticky, everyone but the golfers grateful for the cool wind blowing in off the Irish Sea. But then, forecasting is a tricky business. Just ask the punters here. There are 156 Authentic Gary Harris Youth Jersey players in the field and if you start counting the contenders among them you will soon run out of fingers. And toes.When Rory McIlroy won the Open and the PGA back-to-back in 2014, most fans imagined it was the start of his era. Turned out to be anything but. The following year, Jordan Spieth won the Masters and the US Open. So one became two. Then Jason Day and Dustin Johnson took turns at the top of the rankings. The big two became a big three, then a big four, and it is now a big many more. The last seven majors have all been won by first-time winners, a run that started with Day’s victory at the PGA in 2015, and continued with Danny Willett, Johnson, Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker, and, this year, Sergio García and Brooks Koepka. It’s hard for the casual fan to keep up.Spieth said he could not even begin to name a “big four” in his sport. “I’m not sure who it would be if you asked me,” he said. “I think you look at a guy like Jon Rahm, how does he deserve not http://www.authenticnuggetstore.com/Jamal_Murray_Jersey to be in a conversation like that?”Rahm, only 22, won the Irish Open by six shots a fortnight ago. “He did it two weeks ago at links golf. He destroyed the field. Won by six or seven, right?” Rahm, Spieth said, would not be among the first four guys you would pick if you were making a list, but then, after a performance such as that, how could you count him out? That strength in depth, Spieth said, is “pretty exciting” because “it speaks to the state of the game”.With the knowledge out there, the coaches, stats guys, you know way more about your game than you did 20 or 30 years ago Rory McIlroy McIlroy said something similar. “Golf is in a place right now where you have so many players playing really well.” That, he said, is “sort of where golf is at the moment, no one is really standing out and sort of taking it by the scruff of the neck”.Likewise, when someone asked Johnson whether Bucks Authentic Jersey anyone could boss the sport as Tiger Woods once did he replied: “The talent level is so high on the PGA Tour that it’s hard to be that dominant.” A key difference between tennis and golf, Johnson explained, is that in his sport every player in the top 50 “has a really good shot” at winning the majors. Spieth agrees. “It could be anyone” who wins at Birkdale this week.McIlroy has been working on this problem for a while now. He thinks the advances in sport science have tightened up everything. Not just “the technology in the golf clubs and golf equipment”, but also “the technology with coaching, with TrackMan, with the knowledge out there, the coaches, the stats guys, you know way more about your game than you did 20 or 30 years ago, and everyone has access to that now. And that’s why the margins are so fine and that’s why you’re finding all these guys so closely grouped together because it’s so hard to find that little per cent or two per cent that separates you from the rest of the pack.”There is a story about Harrington that few outside Ireland will know. As a five-year-old he helped his father and his father’s colleagues http://www.officialbuckstore.com/Thon_Maker_Jersey in the police build a golf course in the foothills of the Dublin mountains. Years of diligent practice on that Stackstown course helped Harrington become the golfer – and the man – he is today.“My dad was a policeman and he realised that for the young Garda coming to the city there were no facilities,” he says. “And, to be honest, back in the early 70s they weren’t considered the right people for golf. So he and others helped build Stackstown.”Harrington Jr, along with other members of his family, was a willing helper. “There were two quarries on the course so a lot of stones had to be cleared,” he says, wryly. “I remember myself as a five-year-old being out there levelling sand on the greens – and anyone who knows Stackstown knows there is plenty of slope on the greens so we didn’t do that good a job!”Between them Harrington and Rory McIlroy have helped make golf in Ireland popular and cool but he knows it was not always that way. “These days the courses in Ireland are very busy and full of juniors,” Harrington says, “but when I was growing up you didn’t tell anyone you played golf. You’d get bullied for that at school. Nowadays the kids love it.”The picture in Britain is not as rosy. It is a statement of fact not prophesy that fewer people will watch the Open at Birkdale than the 4.7 million who were transfixed by Harrington’s 2008 triumph. Last year Sky got 1.1 million viewers for its Bafta-winning coverage of the shootout between Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson at Troon – highly impressive for a subscription TV channel but still an inevitable decline. The BBC will show the US PGA Championship this year but for golf to prosper, it needs to be shown on terrestrial television more regularly.The consequences of the almost full retreat from terrestrial TV coverage will probably only reveal themselves slowly but it is safe to assume that no matter how polished Sky’s presentation, or deep its pockets, (they are rumoured to be paying £15m a year for the rights) fewer fly-by viewers will watch in future. And that will have knock-on effects on the numbers lured into the sport.Yet how many converts to golf arrived in that steamy summer of 1976, when a 19-year-old Seve Ballesteros, oozing dash and dare, led the Open at Birkdale after 54 holes before slipping back by shooting seven over par in the first 12 holes on his final round? Almost anyone else would have faded away in shame; instead Ballesteros enthralled a new generation with three birdies and an eagle on the final six holes to tie with Jack Nicklaus for second, behind Johnny Miller.

      Gary Ballance has seen his third crack at Test cricket brought to a halt by http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/byron-maxwell-jersey-for-sale-c-25.html a hairline fracture to his left index finger suffered during England’s heavy defeat by South Africa at Trent Bridge.Ballance was struck by a delivery from Morné Morkel during England’s fourth day collapse as the tourists went level in the four-match series and, though he had told the team management he was ready to play on, a hand specialist seen on Tuesday night ruled him out of next week’s third Test.England maintain he could still return for the fourth Test at Old Trafford the following week. But the injury opens the door for an uncapped rival to stake a claim at The Oval, with Surrey’s Mark Stoneman, Middlesex’s Dawid Malan or Essex’s Tom Westley among the contenders.Though Ballance has struggled to make Blake Martinez Jersey an impact on his return to the side after being endorsed by the new captain, Joe Root – he has squandered three starts in four innings with a top score of 34 – England had been leaning heavily towards an unchanged squad despite two all too familiar batting collapses in the 340-run hammering by Faf du Plessis’s side.Taylor’s wicket was the big one. On a pitch that asked for patience she was able to coax it into being true for her. Earlier in the match she had dismissed Trisha Chetty down the leg side with a stumping that she ranks as her best “situation wise”. The game looked hers for the taking as she brought up her 18th ODI fifty off 74 balls and having it all her own way. It was not to be.Even after that cluster of wickets, England still had five in hand with 74 needed from 96, a relative formality in the modern game. A further Proteas squeeze drew the wicket of Katherine Brunt in the 43rd over and suddenly 46 off 46 was the equation. It was the first time the required run rate had got to http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com/authentic-blake-martinez-jersey.html six an over. England sides of the past might have folded. But on and off the field nerves were being managed.Fran Wilson and Gunn united to knock off 40 with breathtaking confidence. Wilson reverse swept and paddled over the keeper for boundaries. As a result Dane van Niekerk opted to test her with pace. That played neatly into Gunn’s hands, who drove the opening quick Shabnim Ismail down the ground and then through square-leg to turn 20 needed off the final four overs into 10 off the final three. The cruellest twist came last.With three needed Allen Robinson Authentic Jersey from the final over, Gunn hit the first ball back at the bowler, Ismail, who dropped the catch. A single was then taken before Laura Marsh was bowled. Out walked Shrubsole and, well, the rest is known. All 11 in green sank to their knees. Gunn and Shrubsole did their best to console. The message was crystal clear: this is a South Africa side to be cherished.On the balcony emotions, up to a point, were being kept in check. At the start of the final over the cameras panned to Taylor and Tammy Beaumont singing along to Bruno Mars. “We decided that, actually, trying to be cool, calm and ourselves was the best way to go,” said Taylor, on a fleeting moment of Uptown Funk. “That’s what you play for: those moments when you’re clapping singles or that there are no wickets falling. I’ve probably missed that, actually.”In Taylor’s own words, she was “absolutely nowhere” a year ago. She will reflect on how far she has come in due http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-allen-robinson-jersey.html course: “I will give myself a good pat on the back.” She has earned it. Her pride is shared by all who have given towards England’s place at Lord’s, in what will be the biggest game these players have played in.Right after their win, once the celebrations had died down, the England players stayed out signing autographs and obliging each selfie. For so long the players have been the best ambassadors for the English game, obliging every request and opportunity to push their game forward.Through this World Cup players around the world have taken that responsibility on to the field with them. That has led to this, one of the most intense matches the game has seen and throws us forward to a World Cup final at a historic ground where women were not permitted in the Pavilion until as recently as 1999. And there will not be a spare ticket going.“Jenny Gunn had nerves of steel at the end. We put on a show for the crowd, and I would like to say we kept it that close to keep it interesting, but we didn’t. Those close games are the best to win, but the worst to lose. Credit to South Africa, they bowled brilliantly on what was a very tired wicket. What a game of cricket.”During the run-chase it was announced that the final was sold out, with more than 26,500 expected. Gunn notified Knight of this before she sat down at the post-match press conference and she looked shocked, turning to the England media manager and jokingly asking what that meant for tickets for friends and family.“It’s been at the forefront of our minds,” said Knight. “A sold-out final at Lord’s – there’s nothing better, for me. Everything we’ve done in the last 18 months has been working towards that.”The ICC say the group matches reached a global TV audience in excess of 50 million.“It’s a credit to the players and the type of cricket they’ve played,” Knight said. “As players, we’ve really got the sense that the profile keeps going up and up.”

That has led to this, one of the most intense matches the game has seen and throws us forward to a World Cup final at a historic ground where women were not permitted in the Pavilion until as recently as 1999. And there will not be a spare ticket going.“Jenny Gunn had nerves of steel at the end. We put on a show for the crowd, and I would like to say we kept it that close to keep it interesting, but we didn’t. Those close games are the best to win, but the worst to lose. Credit to South Africa, they bowled brilliantly on what was a very tired wicket. What a game of cricket.”During the run-chase it was announced that the final was sold out, with more than 26,500 expected. Gunn notified Knight of this before she sat down at the post-match press conference and she looked shocked, turning to the England media manager and jokingly asking what that meant for tickets for friends and family.“It’s been at the forefront of our minds,” said Knight. “A sold-out final at Lord’s – there’s nothing better, for me. Everything we’ve done in the last 18 months has been working towards that.”The ICC say the group matches reached a global TV audience in excess of 50 million.“It’s a credit to the players and the type of cricket they’ve played,” Knight said. “As players, we’ve really got the sense that the profile keeps going up and up.”

      Perhaps it is easier now for Ian Poulter to speak freely about what, for a spell, was http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-a-j-cann-jersey.html the very real possibility that he might have missed the Open Championship’s return to Royal Birkdale. Or maybe his candid admission merely sums up his nature.“How would it feel to watch this one on TV? Pretty shit,” the 41-year-old says. “Whatever happens this week, wherever I finish, it would have been horrible to sit there and watch on TV. I would have been miserable because I’d have been looking back at what happened nine years ago, thinking I wanted another go at it.”Tommy Fleetwood welcomes pressure of being the local hero at the Open In displaying an admirable lack of ego and also the work ethic that has epitomised his career, Poulter secured his Open position via final qualifying at Woburn. “I absolutely needed to be there because I hadn’t played the golf to be here on merit,” he says. “I had no problems at all stepping down a level, to muck in and get my hands dirty. Nobody is going to give you anything, are they? Nobody is going Authentic Joe Carter Youth Jersey to hand you an invite for the Open.”Sitting in a rental home a short walk from Birkdale’s 1st tee, Poulter is in his element. His family are bustling around him as the golfer relives events here in 2008. Poulter’s second-place finish – Padraig Harrington took the Claret Jug by four, with a score of plus three that typified the attritional nature of the Open that year – represents his highest major finish.Changes for The Oval will be debated by Bayliss, Root and the selectors over the coming days. Toby Roland-Jones and Jake Ball will surely push for Mark Wood’s spot in the attack, while England were waiting to learn whether the No3 Gary Ballance has broken his left index finger after a lifter from Morné Morkel that left him heading for a scan after play.When it was put to Root that England were http://www.authenticclevelandindians.com/Jose-Ramirez-Jersey not learning from the mistakes of the past 18 months, he replied: “That might have happened previously but we are in a position now where we have to make sure we look forward and keep looking to get better. The ways we’ve gone about it previously haven’t worked, so we have to look for something different.”On the struggle to bat time Root said: “A lot of sides do in world cricket, with the amount of white-ball cricket we play and the crossover. But that’s part and parcel of Test cricket, we need to be better at that. There’s no shying away from it. We need to make sure we learn quickly so, if we are in a similar situation at The Oval, for example, we play it slightly smarter.”Root has certainly learned about the pressures that follow a defeat, with two prominent former England captains criticising his side’s approach.Nasser Hussain described their attacking style as Nolan Ryan Womens Jersey a “rubbish brand of cricket” while Michael Vaughan, Root’s longtime mentor, said after the first innings that “maybe it’s a lack of respect about what the game is”.When the latter’s analysis was shared with Root, he replied: “I think that’s very unfair – I can’t believe he’s actually said that, to be honest. We pride ourselves on winning series like this. Unfortunately, we’ve played poorly this week but the most important thing now is to respond well and make sure we put it right.”Root stressed the need for England’s batsmen to adapt to situations, accepting that they need to build the ability to absorb pressure into their games. On his own shortcomings, the 26-year-old conceded his use of the review system was poor following three squandered in the field and a failure to http://www.authenticlosangelesangels.com/Nolan-Ryan-Jersey challenge a caught‑behind off Hashim Amla in South Africa’s second innings.“It’s definitely an area I want to get better at. I’ve always been terrible. You’re going to get it wrong on a few occasions but the most important thing is you use it for the howler and not when trying to burgle a wicket.”Asked by Ryan what elements of the article he objected to, Brailsford was then reported to have said: “I’m not getting into that.

The Guardian contacted Team Sky for comment but was told that they had nothing to add to the story.As on the first rest day in the Tour, Froome did not give a formal press conference for written media – something which is extremely rare for a wearer of the yellow jersey – instead speaking to broadcasters with some print journalists permitted to listen in to the interviews.Froome told broadcasters that he considered the Colombian Rigoberto Urán to be a possible dark horse when it comes to the fight for overall victory in the Tour, which will move to the Alps for two stages on Wednesday and Thursday that include the Croix de Fer, Galibier and Izoard cols. The Colombian currently lies fourth overall, 29sec behind the Sky leader.The gaps in the Tour are small but nothing has yet been seen on the scale of the four monstrous climbs that await on Wednesday and Thursday, all over 2,000m in altitude and, in the case of the Croix de Fer and Galibier, of a length we haven’t seen in the race so far. Chris Froome and his team have only to watch the rest, while grabbing what time they can close to the finish, because on paper the Briton is the strongest time triallist so can bank on gaining time on Saturday in Marseille. Thus, it falls to Romain Bardet, Fabio Aru, and Rigoberto Urán – the strongest climbers in the race so far – to attack; Dan Martin and Simon Yates have not looked quite at the level of the top four to date when the hammer goes down. Froome has the strongest team in the race, and he should have Mikel Landa to cover moves, so he is in the box seat. However …Froome has had a remarkable number of minor “episodes” so far – minor exits from the road on Sunday and at Peyragudes, mechanicals at Chambéry and on Sunday, and his collapse at Peyragudes. Something unexpected could give his rivals an opening – as long as they are willing and able to take the initiative. The other unknown concerns Landa, lying sixth overall and looking disturbingly strong. If at some point on Wednesday or Thursday he gets into a potentially race-winning position – most likely by marking a move by a rider outside Froome’s immediate orbit as he did with Nairo Quintana and Alberto Contador on Bastille Day – that is when the race could get very interesting. The question then is whether Sky rein him in or let him rip. And how Froome might react.

      Roger Federer cemented his reputation as the greatest player to grace his Wayne Ellington Authentic Jersey sport by lifting a record eighth Wimbledon title with a one-sided victory over Marin Cilic, whose thin hopes of an upset were popped by a blister that troubled his movement and tormented his mind.It was an afternoon of sustained emotions but scant drama. Federer, a great Wimbledon favourite since winning his first title in 2003, raced through the match in one hour and 41 minutes and dropped only eight games in a 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 procession.This victory meant the Swiss master, who turns 36 next month, surpassed the big-serving American “Pistol” Pete Sampras and the Victorian-era great, William Renshaw, who claimed seven. Staggeringly, Federer also became the first man to win Wimbledon without dropping a set since Bjorn Borg in 1976.“It is very special to win eight titles,” said Federer. “Wimbledon was always my favourite tournament, and will always be my favourite tournament.“My heroes walked the grounds here. Because of them I think http://www.officialheatauthentic.com/authentic-2-wayne-ellington-jersey.html I became a better player, too.”“And No8 obviously means a lot to me because to be part of Wimbledon history is truly amazing.”What made this victory more remarkable still was that the era when Federer’s racket played like a Stradivarius, and the American writer David Foster Wallace compared watching him to a religious experience, had appeared over for good last year. He was approaching his 35th birthday. He had not won a Grand Slam since 2012. And, worse still, he was struggling with a knee injury – sustained whilst running a bath for his twin daughters – which forced him out of the game for five months.“I have a lot of love for tracks but this is the favourite of the year,” he said. “It has the best combination of corners in the calendar. I Authentic Adidas Mark Fayne Womens Jersey love street circuits but this is a great circuit. They don’t build circuits like this any more with character and history. I am good at this track but the energy I get from the fans – I don’t think any other driver gets that. It lifts you up. From the start I could see the crowd and every time I looked from the corner of my eye I could see everyone standing up cheering – every single lap, everyone standing and http://www.authenticedmontonoilers.com/authentic-mark-letestu-jersey cheering. I feel that is them egging me on and you don’t see that anywhere else in the world.”It was the positive response he had wanted after criticism following his failure to attend an F1 event in London last week. “Arriving with all the smoke and mirrors that was happening, so much negativity trying to pull the weekend down,” he said. “But obviously it had no effect, the fans were out-and-out loving and supporting all weekend.“He was backed once again by the Mercedes executive director, Toto Wolff. “I think sometimes you just need the right impulse to extract maximum performance and that is an answer to the critics,” Wolff said. “I still don’t understand why the British hero is being beaten up before the grand prix and it probably made him even more determined to show his fans how he can drive – and he can drive.”The good news for us – if not his rivals – is that Federer intends to be back again in 2018. “I still love to play and my wife’s totally fine with it,” he added, smiling. “She’s my No1 supporter. She’s amazing. And because I’m playing a little less, I feel like I’m working part-time these days, which is a great feeling.”The tennis gods have been kind to Federer at Wimbledon this year.Andy Murray hobbled out with a hip problem. Novak Djokovic was given the elbow by an inflamed joint. And Rafael Nadal was sunk by a 34-year-old Luxemburger, Gilles Müller, who suddenly played the best tennis of his career. But on the evidence of this fortnight Federer would have been tough to topple whoever was on the other side of the net.While this was his 19th grand slam victory, another record, few would bet against more coming his way. For even now, in the autumn of his career, he stands tallest of all. The eternal – and the immovable.

      Throughout the 73 minutes that constituted Johanna Konta’s biggest match http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/branden-albert-jersey-for-sale-c-10.html of her late-flowering career her mother, Gabrielle, paced the grounds of the All-England Club, biting at her nails and taking furtive glances at the big screen. A fulsome Centre Court crowd, along with thousands more scrunched tight on the Hill to watch her semi-final against Venus Williams, knew precisely the anguish she was going through.They willed the British No1’s piledrivers home, gasping and rasping every time a winner pinged off her racket. But, as Williams’ immense class and experience began fully to emerge, hope gave way to the painful realisation that this would not be Konta’s year. The 6-4, 6-2 score was harsh but no one doubted that the better player had won – and won well.The 26-year-old Konta had arrived on Centre Court hoping to become the first British Packers Jersey woman to win a Wimbledon singles’ semi-final since Virginia Wade toppled Chris Evert in three topsy-turvy sets in 1977. One contemporary match report noted the crowds “murmurs of pleasurable surprise”, yet stressed “they were happy but dared not make it too obvious”. Forty years on the crowd had no such inhibitions. Konta was given a standing ovation as she walked on to court.What followed was furious and unrelenting. Williams is one of the 90s originators of power tennis; Konta one of her progeny. Few rallies lasted much more than four shots. It was brutal and often astounding.Unfortunately for the home crowd, Konta was unable to take the thin opportunities that tumbled her way. At 4-4 in the first set, she had two break points which came and went in a flash – as http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com Williams saved the first and then smashed down a 106mph second serve to wriggle out of the next. “It was one of the few opportunities I had and she took that away,” admitted Konta, who rapidly surrendered her concentration, her serve and the first set.At this stage the Hill – or Kontamanjaro as some wags dubbed it – still believed. Among the fans were three young men sporting home-made T-shirts bearing the slogans “You Konta touch this”, “I Konta believe it” and “You Konta be serious”. But soon the gaps between the shouts grew longer. Reality had started to bite.Konta had survived several lengthy battles at this Wimbledon, including a three-hour-10-minute epic against Donna Vekic – the longest match in the women’s tournament – but this time she had no answer to the barrage coming from the other side of the net.It was not that she played badly but Williams’s movement was just sharper, her hitting Allen Robinson Jersey spikier. Throughout the contest the American’s serve also remained an undecipherable puzzle, with Konta winning only 13 of 50 points on it all match.As she later conceded: “It was very difficult for me to get a http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-allen-robinson-jersey.html good foothold in the match. It came down on the day, and Venus played better than me. I don’t think I did too much wrong out there. I think it was all credit to her.”Williams will now face the Spanish player Garbiñe Muguruza, who steamrollered Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 in 64 minutes, in Saturday’s final. If the American were to add to her five Wimbledon titles – the last of which she won in 2008 – she will become the oldest Wimbledon champion since 1908.Those grand slam winning days had appeared to be long gone when she was diagnosed with Sjogrens syndrome, which causes immense fatigue and leads to swollen joints, in 2011. Yet here she is at 37, having reached the final of the Australian Open in January and now with the rich scent of another title wafting towards her nostrils. “I had a lot of issues and this year has been amazing in terms of my play, so of course I’m excited about being in another final,” she said.Last week Williams had also broken down at a press conference when asked about being blamed for a car accident in which an elderly passenger in another vehicle was killed. The police’s verdict has since been reversed and Williams carries a lightness that was not evident then.And with Roger Federer the favourite on the men’s side there is every chance that Wimbledon could see a startling throwback in time to 2005 and 2007, when Federer and Williams – then in the prime of their careers – were crowned the singles’ champions.Konta insisted afterwards that she could yet join them. She knows there is room for improvement – she barely played a slice, a vicious weapon in the hands of Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf, or came to the net. But the way she has risen from 147 in the world in June 2015 to a top-five position next week gives plenty of reason for optimism. Wimbledon, as well as Konta’s mum, will hope for many more nailbiting moments in the future.Marin Cilic, a former US Open champion playing his best tennis in years, should have the better of it against Querrey, who is unfamiliar with these heady surroundings, but he could struggle in a final against Federer, who can then return to Switzerland with Mirka and their four children to mull over the most astonishing comeback in modern sport.

But the way she has risen from 147 in the world in June 2015 to a top-five position next week gives plenty of reason for optimism. Wimbledon, as well as Konta’s mum, will hope for many more nailbiting moments in the future.Marin Cilic, a former US Open champion playing his best tennis in years, should have the better of it against Querrey, who is unfamiliar with these heady surroundings, but he could struggle in a final against Federer, who can then return to Switzerland with Mirka and their four children to mull over the most astonishing comeback in modern sport.

      With uncanny synchronicity, the electronic scoreboard behind Andy Murray Muller said the break at the start of the fifth had been crucial. http://www.authenticnewjerseydevils.com/authentic-adam-henrique-jersey clicked to show that Roger Federer, a monument to longevity, had broken Milos Raonic to lead 4-2 in their Wimbledon quarter-final just as the injured Scot was hinting he might not play again before the US Open, which begins on 28 August – 20 days after the Swiss’s 36th birthday.Murray, who turned 30 in May, lost in five sets against Sam Querrey, and is feeling the rigours of the game more than he might have imagined after rising to world No1 last November. He was sanguine in defeat, an ordeal stretched over two hours and 42 minutes on Centre Court that clearly strained his throbbing hip to the limit of his pain threshold.He was not relieved to be out of the tournament, he said, less worried about the prospect of losing his No1 ranking (which he will keep anyway after Novak Djokovic’s withdrawal), and is perhaps quietly happy to finally have some time to rest a chronic injury that flared to crisis point at just the wrong time.“Before the tournament [planning] was very short term, because http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/andre-branch-jersey-for-sale-c-22.html you want to play Wimbledon,” Murray said, reflecting on nine days in which he won four matches with varying degrees of conviction and hobbled into the quarter-finals in obvious distress.When Querrey overcame a slow start to serve him out of the Championships with 27 aces on a mild and windless afternoon, winning 3-6, 6-4 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1, a sense of deflation spread through the tournament.“You want to play all of the slams and give your best there. I managed to get through a bunch of matches and did OK. Now I’ll sit down with my team and look at the next step, look a little bit longer term. The US Open is six, seven weeks away. I’ll get the best advice I can, then stick with that. If it means taking a few weeks’ rest, then so be it. If it means training and doing the right rehab, then I’ll do that.”It was only the third time in 28 matches that he has failed to beat A. J. Cann Authentic Jersey Berdych and the No 11 seed, the runner-up here in 2010, will now play the seven-times champion Roger Federer for a place in the final. Berdych didn’t face a single break point on his serve and after taking the tiebreak 7-2, Djokovic immediately took a medical timeout. The break didn’t help as Berdych broke serve to lead 2-0 and that was enough for Djokovic as he decided not to continue.It was in Paris last month that Djokovic was asked if he thought he needed a break from the sport to get his motivation back. Now the decision may now be taken out of his hands. If he requires surgery, he will almost certainly miss at least the US Open next month.“It is really hard to swallow, when you have to retire, especially when you’re playing well,” the 30-year-old said. “I was playing really well, I thought, probably the best tennis I’ve played in the last 10 months or so. I played great. I http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-aj-bouye-jersey.html didn’t drop a set in Eastbourne [in the warm-up event] or coming into the quarter-finals today. I felt really good on the court.Having dominated the game between 2013 and 2015, Djokovic Authentic Andrew Franks Youth Jersey agreed that the efforts of trying to stay at the top, as with Andy Murray, were beginning to take their toll. “It could be,” he said. “We both had a very long, very tough year, a lot of matches, a lot of emotions, a lot of things in play. Our bodies have taken a lot physically.“It’s not easy to kind of play on the highest level throughout the entire season, then be able to do that over and over again every season, and then stay healthy. At the end of the day, we’re all humans. We’ve got to go through these stages.”In 2010, Berdych beat Federer and Djokovic to reach his only grand slam final. Now, he’ll try to do it again, in reverse order, having lost to Federer at the Australian Open and again in Miami this year.“I thought that the match we played [in Melbourne], I have probably never seen him playing better tennis, that’s true,” he said. “Then I played him in Miami, I almost beat him, had a match point. Now for the third one, hopefully the luck [will be] for me.”Every now and again, Marin Cilic puts his head above the parapet and when he does he is a genuine contender. The Croat did it at the US Open when he won his first grand slam title in 2014 and on Wednesday, his 3-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 win against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg put him into the Wimbledon semi-finals for the first time.Wimbledon quarter-finals: Murray falls to Querrey, Djokovic forced to retire, Federer beats Raonic - as it happened Game-by-game report: Roger Federer was the only member of the Big Four still standing after Andy Murray hobbled to a five-set defeat to Sam Querrey, who will play Marin Cilic, and Novak Djokovic retired injured against Tomas Berdych A quarter-finalist in each of the past three years, the 28-year-old seventh seed hammered 32 aces and finally got the better of the 34-year-old Muller, who ran out of steam in the final set, the effort of his epic win against Rafael Nadal in the previous round eventually catching up with him. With the American Sam Querrey having beaten the world No1 Andy Murray, Cilic must now be favourite to reach his first final.

      Novak Djokovic has admitted he could be forced to take an extended break http://www.officialphiladelphiaflyers.com/Adidas-Brayden-Schenn-Jersey from the sport after his Wimbledon hopes were ended by injury during his quarter-final against the Czech Tomas Berdych.The three-time champion, who had looked to be back near to his best in the opening week, was trailing 7-6 (2),Muller said the break at the start of the fifth had been crucial. “It was kind of tough to take that because that’s not the way you want to start out a fifth set,” he said. “He was Dave Keon Authentic Jersey just too good at the end.” 2-0 when he called it a day, having had treatment to his right elbow at the end of the first set. It was a disappointing end to what had been a much-improved tournament for Djokovic after months of below-par outings but he may now have to miss the US Open and perhaps even longer to put right an injury which he said has been bothering him, on and off, for 18 months.“The specialists that I’ve talked with, they haven’t been really too clear, mentioning surgery, mentioning different options,” said Djokovic, who later said in Serbian that the break could be longer than he has ever taken before. “Nobody was very clear in what needs to be done. As long as it kind of comes and goes, it’s fine. But adding up, maybe it worked for seven, eight, 10 months, but now the [last] seven months is not working that great. Obviously it’s adding up more and more. The more I play, the worse it gets. I guess the break is something that I will have to consider right now.”Djokovic, who said the pain was worst when serving and hitting forehands, said http://www.officialtorontomapleleafs.com/Adidas-Dave-Keon-Jersey he would talk to doctors about how best to deal with it. “I haven’t felt this much pain ever since I’ve had this injury. So it’s not a good sign. Obviously the schedule will be readjusted. I’m not thinking too much ahead because I’m not able to play. I’ll try to understand everything that goes around and we’ll see where I can play next.”Djokovic said he had been feeling discomfort from the beginning of the tournament but having also had to play on Tuesday because of the rain-delay that postponed his fourth-round battle, he had little time to recover. “It was only getting worse,” he said. “Unfortunately today was the worst day. Probably the fact that I played yesterday, kind of days adding up, as I’ve said Crockett Gillmore Authentic Jersey before, it wasn’t helping at all.”Murray refused to describe the nature of the injury, and speculation among armchair experts ranged from hip-flexor strain to osteoarthritis, which often plagues long-career athletes. Whatever it is, it plainly turned Murray from the lightning-quick saviour of lost causes into a sitting duck. “I’m not going to go into all the details of exactly what my hip issues are,” he said. “I’ve been dealing with it for a very long time. As you get older, things are a bit tougher to manage than they are when you’re younger. There’s more wear and tear. I’m sure I’ll be able to get through it.“I feel http://www.baltimoreravensauthorizedstore.com/crockett-gillmore-jersey-elite like I’ve done all of the right stuff, but I’ll try to do more, try to get myself in better shape. Hopefully I’ll come through the other side of it a better player, a better athlete.“I knew I wasn’t going to do any major damage by playing. I wanted, if possible, to find a way at the end. Sam served great. The end of the fourth set and fifth set, he hardly missed any first serves. He was acing me pretty much every time. I wasn’t getting enough power on my serve to put him in any bother. He was dictating all of the points.”After his defeat, Murray also corrected one reporter who stated that Sam Querrey was the first American player to reach the semi-final of a grand slam since 2009. “Male player,” Murray interrupted.As for his ranking, which he ripped away from Djokovic in a frantic charge over the latter part of 2016, and speaking before his rival retired from his match, Murray said: “I haven’t played well enough this year to deserve to stay there for much longer. If it doesn’t happen by the end of this tournament, it will happen by the end of the US Open.”As Murray was heading home to Oxshott, 11 miles away in north Surrey, to recover with his wife Kim and daughter Sophia, Federer was still in cruise control, two sets up against Milos Raonic, and heading for his 101st match at Wimbledon, and a record 12th semi-final.Muller began the match in superb style, breaking Cilic in the seventh game thanks to a stunning forehand and broke again two games later to take the set, the first the Croat had dropped in the tournament. The left-hander yielded just one break point in the first two sets – at 6-5 in the second – and for long periods Cilic was just hanging in there, looking for something to happen. The tiebreak proved to be the pivotal moment of the match, with Cilic taking it 8-6 to level, before breaking once in the third to go up two sets to one

In the performance Danielle Hunter Authentic Jersey of her life – which may well lead to many others – she turned doubters into believers and conquering the nerves that once threatened to strangle her talent, beat the world No2, Simona Halep, in three sets of the highest quality to become the first British woman semi-finalist here since Virginia Wade in 1978.Wade was on Centre Court to witness the gripping 6-7 (2), 7-6 (5), 6-4 quarter-final win by the No6 seed and like the rest of the crowd was aware that two more wins would deliver Konta an even bigger slice of history: the Wimbledon title that Wade secured 40 years ago.Wimbledon http://www.officialpacershop.com/authentic-0-aaron-brooks-jersey.html 2017: Johanna Konta beats Halep to reach semi-finals – as it happened Rolling report: Join Barry Glendenning at SW19 for the women’s quarter-finals and Novak Djokovic in held-over action To give herself a shot at the Venus Rosewater dish Konta has to beat the ageless Venus Williams in the semi-finals, knowing the 37-year-old American looked back to her best in beating the young French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 7-5. “Age is not a factor,” Konta said in the immediate aftermath. “She’s a tremendous champion.

      If nothing else, it was a more polished performance than the first time Aaron Rodgers Youth Jersey Wayne Rooney staged his own press conference, on a January evening in 2003 and the occasion of his first professional deal for Everton. At 17, Rooney was so unprepared for the barrage of flashing cameras the words stuck in his throat and his audience could hardly hear him speak. David Moyes told him off for chewing gum and there was an awkward moment, after his first uncertain words, when he reached for the bottle of water on his table. Rooney was about to swig straight from it until Moyes intervened. “Pour it in the glass, Wayne,” came the advice.Fourteen years on, it was a very different Rooney taking his seat in the People’s Club Lounge at Goodison Park, holding up the No10 shirt – the possession of Romelu Lukaku until recently – and telling the story of how he had kept the negotiations of his transfer from Manchester United a secret even from his closest family.The explanation was that his dad, Wayne Sr, would have been so excited “he would not have been able to keep it in”. The same for his mum, Jeanette. “I didn’t tell Kai [his eldest son] either because he was going to school and I didn’t want him speaking to his mates,” Rooney reported. “It was literally once everything was agreed and the paperwork was through that I told everyone. Kai just jumped on me. It was the happiest I’ve ever seen him. My http://www.packersnflofficialprostore.com/AUTHENTIC+AARON+RODGERS+JERSEY dad, too. Obviously he’s an Evertonian and he’s been going to Manchester to watch me for the last 13 years.

I’ve played him in the past [eight times for a single win: on hardcourt in Los Angeles seven years ago]. He’s playing at a high level. He’s defending champion, No1 in the world. He loves playing here. The crowd is going to be behind him.“But sometimes it’s fun to go out there and play where the crowd is behind the other player 100%. I’m going to try to play aggressive, hopefully play well and can sneak out a win.”Their last match was a quick three-setter at the Australian Open this http://www.officialpacershop.com year before Murray suffered the unexpected shock of losing to Mischa Zverev. He wants no more surprises like that.And “sneaking out a win” has been Murray’s speciality over the years, although he will probably be on full-bore against Querrey. After four matches of promise, he needs to find another level. The challenges beyond Querrey are considerably more difficult than even the tricky assignments he has negotiated so far. He will also need to be at or near full fitness.As the appointed conscience of the game’s etiquette and morals, Murray was inevitably asked about scheduling that put the world No1 Angelique Kerber and the 2015 finalist Garbiñe Muguruza on No2 Court, while Novak Djokovic and the unfancied Frenchman Adrian Mannarino had the last slot on No1 Court.Murray made perfect sense in observing: “It’s pretty much always been the case here that you got two men’s matches and a women’s match on the Centre Court. Sometimes it varies on the other courts. Ideally you would have two men’s and two women’s on Centre. Starting the matches a bit earlier would allow for that.“At the Aussie Open, there’s three women’s matches and two men’s pretty much every day on the stadium court. [We] need to maybe find a way of allowing for an equal split of the men’s and women’s matches across the tournament rather than just looking at one day. If there’s better matches on the women’s side than the men’s side, you can flip it. If there’s better matches on the men’s side, then that has to go first, as well.”In a sea of uncertainty,“When you’re going on adrenalin you can go a lot further,” he observed courtside, in reference to the grinding struggles of Rafael Nadal and the lesser concerns of Andy Murray, who arrived at the championships after tough campaigns on the red dirt of Europe while the Swiss recuperated at home. Roger Federer is still the eternal lifeboat. Even as other contenders fought to avoid drowning on day seven, he advanced to the quarter-finals for the 15th time with another excellent win, Grigor Dimitrov bowing down before him for the sixth time in a row. Whether or not he wins an eighth title on Sunday, he has already left the tournament with another star-dusted collection of memories.

      The Goodison Park roof was not quite wrenched from its fittings http://www.tennesseetitansauthorizedstore.com/antwon-blake-jersey when Wayne Rooney made his return to Everton colours but perhaps it loosened enough to sow the seeds for what passed two years later. Rooney had felt some apprehension before donning Brian Dawkins Authentic Jersey the kit for Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial in August 2015, aware that his presence had hardly been greeted with universal joy on those annual visits with Manchester United; when it came around, though, the applause was warm and the chants from the Gwladys Street Stand were lusty enough. If nothing else, it suggested that on both sides the old feelings might not be so difficult to reawaken.“I read a great quote from Michael Johnson which stuck with me,” said Warburton, his on-field labours finally over. “He said: ‘Pressure is just the shadow of great opportunity.’ That’s how I see it. Don’t be afraid of what you could lose. Be excited about what you could achieve. You’ve got to be brave, take chances and make things happen. When you get in the real big games, you don’t want occasions to blur for players. You still want them to have a go, play with freedom and instinct.”The Lions were certainly true to their pre-tour word about giving it everything. If the final body count was slightly lower than expected, the scans http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_BRIAN_DAWKINS_JERSEY.html awaiting Sean O’Brien and Johnny Sexton, both high‑class Test “animals”, before they fly home were a reminder of just how much commitment these tours require.Warburton, for example, found it difficult to address his players beforehand, so conscious was he of the magnitude of the occasion: “I probably didn’t say as much as I normally would because I felt very emotional before the game. You think of all sorts – my family, my little girl, my wife – and all the things you sacrifice to get here: your diet, your sleep, your lifestyle. When I chat to youngsters, I always say to them that being a professional rugby player is a lifestyle. It’s not about the five or six hours you’re at a training ground each day, it is what you do off the field, how you look after yourself. When you have been committed for four years and you get to a Lions series, all that effort goes into one 80-minute game. You just want to do yourself justice.”He and his team-mates deserve a good rest now but the administrators negotiating the dates and itinerary for the 2021 Lions tour and beyond should be made to sit with Warburton for an hour and listen to the modern player’s perspective. “I know there are things that are over my head when it comes to the finances and the politics of itCam Newton Youth Jersey but from a playing perspective I would like to give my opinion,” the 28-year-old said. “Speaking on behalf of the players, we’d always want the Lions to happen. I am sure most players would say the Lions is the most special thing you’ll do in your international career. I think it’s a must the Lions should continue.”New Zealanders would all echo that sentiment. There has been a relentless crackle to this series, probably more so than for any other games seen here since the 2011 World Cup. If the All Blacks were unlucky to lose both Ben Smith and Dane Coles, the Lions would have fancied making a still bigger dent had Billy Vunipola been fit.Against that New Zealand were slightly unfortunate to concede the last-minute penalty that allowed Owen Farrell to win the second Test and, but for a greasy ball, the third Test might have concluded differently too. Then again, what http://www.officialpanthersnflauthentic.com/Nike-Cam-Newton-Jersey.html if Farrell’s long ball had not been intercepted by Barrett on Saturday with the score at 0-0 and the Lions on the verge of seizing the initiative? It is not impossible we could have been talking 1971 all over again rather than 1955, the last time the Lions drew a series.It is a safe bet that the decibel levels will be far higher when Rooney steps out for Everton against Stoke on 12 August, assuming throats have soothed since a home friendly with Sevilla the weekend before. Everton’s support had, broadly, been split over the notion that a player whose departure in 2004 left long-term scars might sign back on with the winter of his career nearing; the likelihood of a reunion grew steadily since that toe was dipped back into the water at Goodison and there is a sense now that a picturebook development of this kind should be embraced.Rooney has played that side of things well – “I’ve kept it quiet for the last 13 years but I’ve been wearing Everton pyjamas at home with my kids,” he told the club’s in-house television channel after his transfer was confirmed – and only a minority of hardliners in Liverpool’s blue half would doubt his authenticity. More pertinent is what exactly Rooney can offer and what he represents. The improvements wrought by Ronald Koeman last season have been followed up on by sharp use of Farhad Moshiri’s funds and a keen anticipation of the post-Romelu Lukaku era. It is not overly damning to state that the sense of purpose around Everton is brisker than at any time since the mid-1980s; upwardly mobile arrivals like Davy Klaessen, Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramírez fit a certain mould and in some respects the addition of a forward who turns 32 in October appears divergent.

      There are several defining images from the 2017 British & Irish Lions tour, many http://www.officialnikedolphinsshop.com/branden-albert-jersey-for-sale-c-10.html of them involving the same colour: the red card shown to Sonny Bill Williams in Wellington, Warren Gatland’s red clown nose, the oceans of red in the stadiums and, perhaps above all else, the red‑shirted Lions captain, Sam Warburton, jokingly yanking the trophy towards himself as Aaron Rodgers Womens Jersey he and his New Zealand opposite number, Kieran Read, posed for end-of-series photographs.For the Lions to have even one hand on the prize at the end was extraordinary. It is impossible to overstate the barriers they have hurdled to compete on this tour and the shared spoils have earned them fresh respect in both hemispheres. A final tour record of P10 W5 D2 L3, with a positive aggregate try count of 18-16 and only one defeat by more than one score, is rather better than Gatland’s detractors expected.Not everything was perfect; the saga of the extra six replacements was poorly handled, the lack of Scottish Test involvement was a shame and the old warm rapport on Lions tours between the squad and the travelling media has floated away into the anti-social media ether. For all the commercial rapaciousness of the modern Lions operation, however, this tour has http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com/authentic-bart-starr-jersey.html otherwise restored faith in a noble ideal and, in Warburton, the squad had one of the all-time great ambassadors.Not even Willie John McBride captained two successive undefeated Lions squads nor bounced back from failing to make the starting XV for the first Test to deny a hugely motivated New Zealand in the last two brutal, defining games. If Jonathan Davies was a deserved winner of the players’ player of the tour award, it was Warburton who made the quietly persuasive request for Romain Poite to re‑examine his initial decision to award New Zealand a kickable penalty in the closing moments with the scoreboard reading 15-15.If Ramírez is firing, Yannick Bolasie fit by January and Ross Barkley suitably engaged, it is difficult to see where Rooney might find a niche. Ademola Lookman’s rapid progress cannot be overlooked and then there is Tom Davies, whose strides of last season will be expected to continue. Gylfi Sigurdsson may yet join them from Swansea. All can operate at the tempo Koeman demands while Rooney, although not the physical wreck depicted by those who tiresomely lampooned him during his later years at United, cannot be expected to complete a full season at that kind of tilt. Practically, his greatest use might lie in the versatility that has been as much a curse as a blessing in recent seasons; Rooney has more than enough quality to influence games from Allen Robinson Womens Jersey across the forward line or playing behind a centre‑forward, even if only in bursts. Over a long campaign, that blend of experience and adaptability should have ample benefits.All of this is to second-guess Koeman’s intentions for Rooney but also to speak blindly of Rooney’s own plans. It is clear he wishes to play more football but the end he is aiming for may supersede everything else. Winning silverware with Everton would be “the pinnacle”, he said – the crowning point in a career that has brought 11 major titles. Not everybody in the squad will feel that way, at least not as viscerally. Rooney has changed in the past 13 years but Everton are changing quickly, too; should their stadium move to Bramley Moore dock go through in the next half-decade, their identity will have morphed decisively from that of the club that had never held serious hope of seeing their prodigal son’s best years. He embodies, albeit in the most http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-allen-robinson-jersey.html interrupted of ways, continuity; the value of somebody for whom the badge signifies everything, and who just happens to be England’s best player of this millennium, should transcend the pitch.“We should be winning trophies and I think we’re taking steps to being involved in trying to win some,” Rooney said. It is a reminder that the stakes are higher here than when Thierry Henry returned to Arsenal in 2012, already a serial winner with the club and bearing no burden of unfinished business, or when Robbie Fowler enjoyed a euphoric first half-season back at Liverpool six years previously. Everton are a club growing into their new skin and, having had his successes elsewhere, Rooney cannot afford to be seen as a wallflower in their effort to reach the next level. Yet Koeman is shrewd enough to have calculated his gamble to an infinitesimal degree; should it come off, then the ardour that cautiously reignited two summers ago will reach a temperature nobody had thought possible.But who are we kidding? It would be greedy to ask for more than three epic Test matches, the extraordinary long-range goal-kicking of Farrell and Elliot Daly, the electric dash of Barrett, the soaring all-round impact of Maro Itoje and Brodie Retallick, the infectious atmosphere in the stadiums and the sportsmanship of Warburton and Read. Apart from a final outright winner, the 2017 series had it all.we have a small favour to ask.
