Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 to win FA Cup

Wenger met Gunners majority shareholder Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis on Monday to discuss his future before his contract expires next month. Surely Chelsea would steamroll them as they have often done in recent seasons. Wenger was also dismissive of the notion that his record-breaking FA Cup success, after previous wins in 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014 and 2015, might have an impact on the talks about his position.

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has been fined for apparently using a homophobic slur during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. "I like our first pass, I didn't like our second pass", Carlyle said. Anaheim needs to be more physical with the Nashville defense and reduce the amount of time they have.

City do not want to be left in the same situation as Chelsea, who allowed Romelu Lukaku to leave without inserting an option to buy back the striker at a set price.

LBJ set to continue what's become summer tradition at NBA Finals

Jaylen Brown spent his rookie season listening to the Boston Celtics veterans, learning from them and figuring out how to impact a playoff team. But they also showed how badly they need him. Midway through this Cleveland series, it was revealed that Thomas had been playing through a hip injury since March 15. He's one of the innovators of small ball, a coach who seemed more comfortable with a point forward than a power forward, so it wouldn't have been surprising if he leaned Durant. Read More

No surprise: It's Cavs-Warriors in the NBA Finals, again

James was the big storyline as the game opened, as the King again struggled with scoring. With just over four minutes to go in the game, Kevin Love grabbed a rebound off a missed Avery Bradley jump shot. Thomas initially injured his hip in March and played the final two months of the regular season before aggravating it during the playoffs. During his post-game press conference, LeBron was asked if he has ever missed a dunk like that before, and he joked that he has. Read More

Tigers vs. White Sox, Game 1

Tigers vs. White Sox, Game 1

First pitch is scheduled for 5:10 p.m.at Guaranteed Rate Field (FSD/97.1). There was a time on Friday night when the Detroit Tigers had runners on second and third base with nobody out. Perhaps no player will enter the series as hot as White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu. "It was a long day", Abreu said through an interpreter. Buck Farmer is winless (0-6) in his 32 major-league appearances, eight of which have come as a starting pitcher. Read More

Gritty Celtics stun Cavaliers to reduce series deficit

James said. "It seems like you only ask questions when we lose". "We're going back home, we're not going to get comfortable". "It's one game. I don't care if you win by 200 points", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "We got a couple of shots we should have shot, tried to make the extra pass, which is fine". Boston was motivated to atone for its bad Game 2 , but the Celtics are still terribly shorthanded and faced with tough matchups all over the court. Read More

Usmanov bid to buy Arsenal rejected by Kroenke

Usmanov bid to buy Arsenal rejected by Kroenke

Usmanov now owns a 30 per cent stake in the club and has a personal fortune of around £11.2bn. Stan Kroenke has insisted he remains committed to Arsenal and his shares are "not, and never have been, for sale". "Overall I believe that we played since January in a very hard environment for different reasons", Wenger said. He has refused to confirm he will stay next season and, after missing out on the Premier League's top four for the first time since 1996, Wenger said the uncertainty had ... Read More
