The Argentina striker has endured one of his most hard seasons at City - he was even dropped at times with Guardiola wanting more from him - but he finished it with 33 goals in all competitions. Given the expectation that accompanied Guardiola's arrival last summer, going into the final game still needing points to secure a top-four place represents under-achievement.
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - LeBron James had little interest in rehashing his 11-point performance in the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 3 loss to the Boston Celtics on the morning of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The 119-Tests veteran also congratulated the team for their maiden Test series win in the West Indies , saying, "The national team really fought well during the West Indies tour". But for a country who produce talent out of nowhere, another Younis or Misbah might just be waiting in the wings. I don't know if I'll have any energy left after I leave to give cricket.
A lot of treatment. Popovich wasn't about to guess whether Leonard would return in time for Saturday's game, saying it could be Friday or even game day before that would be determined. Leonard was asked what input he would have on whether he would play Saturday. Or, conversely, you could let me break down some fun plays from these games so you don't have to watch them yourself.

"I've done that before with Frank Lampard when he was vice-captain -- and Gazza (Cahill) has filled that role superbly too".
But the world goes on and does not stop and we have to do our work. Team-mate Smalling echoed those sentiments, adding: "I think there was an extra determination".

The smart money, if an global player overtook American co-leaders J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley , was on veterans such as Poulter , Oosthuizen, Adam Scott (the previous youngest victor, at 23 in 2004) or Masters champion Sergio Garcia. That's not to say Sunday at Sawgrass was devoid of any entertainment, good and bad. Even so, Poulter's outlook sure is different.
