LONDON -- So often the beneficiary of late goals under Alex Ferguson, it seems everything is being turned on its head at Manchester United under David Moyes
after his teams latest stumble in the Premier League. Cheap NFL Online Jerseys . Deep into stoppage time at Old Trafford, Darren Bent plundered a goal in "Fergie Time" for Fulham to claim a 2-2 draw for the
leagues worst team on Sunday. And a miserable first season for Moyes just keeps
on getting worse, with the champions adrift in seventh, after winning the title
by 11 points under Ferguson in May. "Today was probably as bad as it gets,"
Moyes said. But next up on Wednesday is a trip to Arsenal, which might have lost
5-1 at Liverpool on Saturday but is second in the standings. Bents intervention
leaves United nine points adrift of the fourth Champions League qualification
place, let alone the summit where Chelsea is 15 points ahead. Even more
agonizing for Moyes is that his team had turned the match around to be in a
winning position. Trailing from Steve Sidwells 19th minute-goal, Robin van
Persie and Michael Carrick scored rapid goals to put United 2-1 up going into
the final 10 minutes. Uniteds setback was compounded by Tottenham moving three
points from fourth place on Sunday by dislodging Everton from fifth with a 1-0
victory over the Merseyside team. While Tottenham is experiencing a revival
after changing managers, there is little appetite at United to dismiss the man
who succeeded Ferguson after 26 years. Moyes will fight on, with the prospect of
Champions League glory still in play, even if the squad doesnt look capable of
conquering the European football powers these days. What made Sundays draw so
galling too is that it was masterminded by Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen, who
was Fergusons assistant at United until May, and is enduring even more misery
than Moyes with his bottom-place team. How relieved Meulensteen was to see Lewis
Holtby, a midfielder on loan from Tottenham, rampage down the left flank before
sending in a cross that the advancing Sidwell slid into the net. United was
lacking a killer instinct in front of goal until it was almost too late. Juan
Matas cross was turned in by the unmarked Van Persie in the 78th, and Carricks
shot deflected off Scott Parker into the net. But Uniteds defence crumbled. A
shot from former United winger Kieran Richardson was pushed by goalkeeper David
de Gea straight to Bent who headed into an empty net. In a game where United
sent in some 81 crosses to Fulhams four, and goal attempts were 31 to six in the
hosts favour, the points were shared. And Fulham is four points from safety at
the bottom. "We made it difficult for them," Meulensteen said. "United have got
some problems of their own. They kept creating chances and crosses but we
defended well and held them." It was a similar story at White Hart Lane in the
days other game. Everton was in control but it was Tottenham who snatched all
three points by scoring from its only shot on target. Emmanuel Adebayor
controlled a free kick, taken swiftly and smartly by Kyle Walker, and went past
Seamus Coleman before dispatching the ball into the net in the 65th minute. Cheap NFL Nike Jerseys . Sami Salo scored two goals as the Canucks overcame a hat-trick from Edmonton Oiler rookie sensation Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to win 4-3 in
NHL action Saturday. Cheap NFL Stitched Jerseys . Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a
combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three
elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia.
For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate.
Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of
Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty,
Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester.VANCOUVER -- The B.C.
Lions made a tough decision to part ways with Geroy Simon prior to last season.
When the 38-year-old retired earlier this month, it was an easy call to honour
the CFLs all-time leading receiver as soon as possible. The Lions announced
before Fridays 37-13 pre-season victory over the Calgary Stampeders that Simon
will have his No. 81 added to B.C. Place Stadiums Ring of Honour this summer.
"Its something thats very special and I appreciate it," said Simon. "This was
home for a long time and its a place where I feel real comfortable so Im really
happy and really honoured for the recognition." But while Simon is more than
deserving, the speed at which it has come about is a bit of a surprise. B.C.
traded Simon to the Saskatchewan Roughriders when it was decided his role would
change with the Lions for the 2013 season. He went on to have modest numbers
during the regular season with the Riders, but scored two touchdowns in the
clubs Grey Cup victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Simon had indicated that he
wanted to play one more season with either the Lions or Riders in 2014, but
wasnt able to agree to terms with either club. "That was the plan but it just
didnt work out," said Simon, who won the Grey Cup with the Lions in 2006 and
2011. "I wanted to play but I also didnt want to play anywhere else other than
B.C. or Saskatchewan. I made that quite clear. When the decision was made that I
wasnt going to come here I just said Im going to retire and move on." The
Johnstown, Pa., native added that he doesnt hold any animosity towards the Lions
for what transpired the last two off-seasons. "I think that takes more effort to
be mad and hold a grudge," said Simon. "I move on. Im looking forward to my next
career and Im happy with my decision and whatever else happens." Lions general
manager and vice-president of football operations Wally Buono -- who made the
call not to bring Simon back as a player -- said honouring him was "a no
brainer." "I want to thank Geroy for making this happen because he could have
been difficult to deal with," said Buono. "He was, as he always is, a great pro,
a great human being." Now working as a scout for Saskatchewan, Simon was taken
aback that his former club would reach out so quickly and honour him on July 25
against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, coincidentally the team that gave him his
start in the CFL. "It was totally unexpected. I didnt expect it," he said. "I
was shocked but happy and pleased with the organization." On the field Friday,
Lions quarterback Kevin Glenn finished 17 of 21 for 173 yards and a touchdown as
he continues to look like the favourite to start the clubs opener on June 28
against the Edmonton Eskimos. No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay did not take a snap
in the pre-season as he continues to recover from off-season shoulder surgery.
Stefan Logan returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter as
B.C. jumped out to an 18-0 lead after just 15 minutes, but Calgary quarterback
Drew Tate led his team back in the second quarter to trail 21-13 at the break
Lions rookie defensive back T. Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys. J. Lee had two interceptions -- including one that he returned 15 yards for a touchdown in the
third quarter to put the game out of reach at 31-13 -- while linebacker Solomon
Elimimian added two interceptions of his own. In a battle to make the team, Lee
made quite an impression in his final audition. "I just appreciate the
opportunity of playing this game," said Lee, who could have had four
interceptions on the night. "Im grateful." Lions head coach Mike Benevides,
whose team will host this years Grey Cup game, definitely took notice. "I know
theres going to be tough decisions," he said. "The process today was really good
for us. Fast, aggressive defence." Tate -- who threw a TD -- and fellow Calgary
quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell were both picked off twice, while reigning CFL most
outstanding player Jon Cornish rushed for 33 yards on five carries early on
before spending the rest of the night as a spectator. Prior to the game, Buono
said there was nothing awkward when the Lions approached Simon about honouring
his number, even though they dealt him prior to last season and declined to
bring him back in 2014. "Its business. Nothing was done on a personal level.
When you ask me who one of my all-time favourite players is, Im going to say
Geroy," said Buono. "He was a tremendous warrior for us, a tremendous ambassador
in the community. "It was tough last year. It was tough to cross that bridge
that we had to separate with Geroy. It was tough to know that we were going to
line up without Geroy." Simon had 1,029 career catches for 16,352 yards and 103
touchdowns with Winnipeg (1999-2000), B.C. (2001-2012) and Saskatchewan (2013).
He was the CFLs most outstanding player in 2006 with 105 catches for 1,856 yards
and 15 touchdowns, capping that campaign with his first of three Grey Cup
titles. Buono, who coached Simon with B.C. during his prime, said he never
changed who he was on or off the field. "He responded well to the challenges.
The thing about players is you want them to be able to withstand the expectation
and the pressure," he said. "When youre the No. 1 receiver year in and year out,
theres a tremendous price to pay because everybodys on you, everybodys after
you, defences are made to stop you but Geroy overcame all that. "He was always a
guy that worked hard, was very humble, was great in the locker-room and was a
superstar in the community." Simon said he now wants to build his front-office
resume in hopes of one day running a CFL team. "In 10 years I see myself as
being a GM or an president of an organization," he said. "I want to be running
the show somewhere. "Im not done (winning Grey Cups). Im going to win a few
more." Notes: Fridays attendance at B.C. Place was 26,445. ... The Stampeders
open the regular season June 28 at home against the Montreal Alouettes. ... Tate
finished 6 of 12 passing for 86 yards, while Mitchell completed 10 of 20 passes
for 100 yards. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
