After a four year wait, the glut of cricket that is the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup starts on the 14th of February and runs through to March the 29th. We get a whole 49 games of cricket in a little over a month! The greatest players from around the world are getting geared up to put on one of the greatest spectacles of the cricketing calendar. The tournament will be co hosted by Australia and New Zealand, so we can expect to see some packed stadiums and their cricket mad fans.
Saturday night sees Kevin Mitchell step into the ring with Daniel Estrada at the O2 Arena in London. There are no world titles on the line but this is one of those fights where there is something even more important on the line; the boxers’ careers at the highest level.
Tyson Fury put in probably the performance of his career on Saturday night as he despatched Dereck Chisora with total ease to set up a clash with heavyweight ruler Wladimir Klitschko; but can the Mancunian really become the champion of the world as his promoter Frank Warren suggests?
As the odds are slashed on Manuel Pellegrini being the next Premier League boss to lose his job, could the man who won the title just six months ago really be facing the bullet at Manchester City?
The 61-year-old is in trouble at the Etihad thanks to a pretty dire Champions League campaign so far this season. It was not going too badly until Wednesday night when his team were sunk 1-2 at home by CSKA Moscow with two City players seeing red, but now it looks to be a real disaster.

Europe may have won the previous two editions of the famous old competition but both have been incredibly close as the final scoreline in 2010 and 2012 was 14 ½ – 13 ½.

Throughout Danny Welbeck’s career so far he has been used to being either played out of position or a substitute, sometimes both. However, in an eventful eight day period, he may have just turned that all around for both club and country, potentially eclipsing his former Manchester United colleague Wayne Rooney.
Another long, tough, Championship season gets underway tonight as Blackburn host Cardiff at Ewood Park. Things have changed considerably for the visiting team aside from their club colours since the last time they played their Lancashire counterparts.
10 :- Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Tim Howard!
When Tim Howard pulled off save after save when the USA played Germany in the Last 16 he became an instant scoial media sensation with the hasgtag #thingstimhowardcansave. In the end the keeper couldn’t stop Germany from their destiny but he’s received the admiration of the planet.
