while the needs alexander cocksure golf completes the top three the russia star has scored sixteen goals for the defending champions this campaign including memorable hat trick against ricky's class and in august. for me when i leave the ball will miss striker luis suarez for friday's premier league game at highlands new fossil the first of six days of top flight action the iroquois star was banned for one match after giving an obscene hand gesture to follow fans earlier this month suarez has scored five goals this campaign while record signing andy carroll has netted three times the low scoring reds are unbeaten as home in the league so far they've drawn six of those nine games on newcastle last only twice on the right. that is what he wants that it would for the fantasy play the just different shop but he goes call him soon looking ten year pursue that goal. and i'm sure next year will be all the better for this being said before this year was
a strange very early camp program you know everybody drew ourselves and so on my new one so i was very helpful for us. now we're going to two tough goings and we're looking forward to the new going to those going to the press spirit conference about yourselves and we're looking forward to going to our field so this is how the table looks with six big days of football to come and launch the city are still top on goal difference over manchester united tottenham are thirty seven points behind the leaders for the game in hand a fourth best and liverpool sixty one place about friday's opponents newcastle while at the bottom wolves are two points clear of the drop zone that we can off in it two points ahead of bolton platteville a five points adrift with manager steve king under mounting pressure israel said to face the daunting task of a trip to ny just united on saturday. when chester united done you know seventy
eight games ago you know they went back to been solid and you know really hard to beat know the became a little bit more expansive again so we know that the strengths that we have within the squad i think we can take a lot of confidence when we went to anfield you know when you look at what you know kenny put on the pitch on the bench as well and you know a fit with stuck to the task well defensively sure you know that's going to be key because normally we score when we play we for more. than when timing things native scotland celtic have leapfrogged arch rivals rangers at the top of the s.p.l. following a tight one no victory in the old firm darby at parkhead chances came and went begging for both sides in the first half before joe ledley finally but the deadlock soon after the restart charlie mulgrew blasted in a corner and ledley to head home to be the winner celtic hung on for the ninth
straight went to rangers by two points which is in stark contrast to early november the trial by fifty five for two games in hand. argentina legends diego maradona is again facing the consequences of his temper the. outspoken former midfielder has been fined just under two and a half thousand dollars to seventy abusing a rival coach who a top flight the fifty one year old owl was so manager has been engaged in a feud with one of his opposite numbers since losing an ill tempered match last month. a carton it table while he says he would love to stay on at the helm or even also take up the job as national coach of their merits. i think if i was given the opportunity to coach the u.a.e. national team i would accept with pleasure i'm very proud of what has been mentioned and what i've heard but first of all i was give my time to old boss so i have a mission here and i want to complete this mission and who knows maybe one day i
will coach both teams. basketball and ryan white nailed a late shots to hands the miami heat their third straight win since the start of the season the n.b.a. dream team fighting back to edge the charlotte bobcats on the road by a single point well the ball cats went out of their way to place their record high at meeting twenty thousand people breaking away right from the off stump in cruise control for most of the match dustin and gerald henderson connecting for forty one points between them but the bron james also ran wild for the heat point a game high thirty five points chris bosh added another twenty five then with less than three seconds to go wade what looked like a tough shot. at the way people bad for gusto missed a buzzer beater and straight points out that would save the day to charlotte for ninety six ninety five to miami is how it finished.
and we finish with well basketball rushes to a famous goal was instrumental in the denver nuggets victory at home to the utah jazz on wednesday but speed for the season finally started and on the revis at home in the summer the center talked to our own lancaster with. despite it's not quite making it to the top of the bill just yet to my famous golf had already managed to make the headlines in north america it became part of a blockbuster multiplayer trade that saw him move to denver nuggets and carmella to the new york knicks well mozzies new team were knocked out of the first playoff round in the n.b.a. giving him an opportunity to visit home and prepare for the upcoming european championship in lithuania winning the continental trophy in twenty eleven will mean automatic qualification for the london olympics hearing them shouldn't sure why can't make any promises in regards to the euro basket but i can say that i'm sure the guys will perform at their best and no one will cut corners and i think that
the foundry cura lanka. joins us will have better chances because of his experience to be a great help despite leaving russia still has a large fan base had his previous club called him mas he keeps in touch with them through his online blog and those lucky enough may even catch one of his master classes in the russian capital but where are the fans most dedicated in russia or the united states. you're playing. when i played for khimki i saw the same people at all the games it was a group of fans who form the majority of the audience and even followed the team to other cities in regards to the n.b.a. well they might have something similar although i personally never came across such a thing you just get a full audience of people who come to support the team but i never saw such a thing in the us when an organized group of fans would take up a large share of the audience and root for their team but. fan support is not the only difference between the russian basketball league and the n.b.a.
the american schedule is more in sense with regular season games sometimes held four times a week so the studying of the opponent shot practice or simply warm up takes center stage during practice providing plenty of room for individual skills. it is team play no one negates but compared to europe it is somehow more individualized i would say the game is based on single players who play one on one and win it they may score a goal just make a pass european basketball not to mention russia is slightly different people try to find other solutions to the difficulties that arise during the game. the russians will be hoping to qualify for the london olympics by winning the european championship in september it's hope that both russian and be a stars and body language and two more famous golf will be available to help the team in lithuania quired individual skills from the united states and the home bred
