John Stones is a rock-solid bet if Chelsea pay Everton the right price

theguardian.com — As baseball fields go, there aren't many better views than the one from AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, on the edge of the bay as it sweeps towards the Bay Bridge and close enough to McCovey Cove.

Arsène Wenger ready for duel with José Mourinho after shortest of summers

theguardian.com — The most telling insight, perhaps, came when Arsène Wenger was asked how he had recovered after the exertions of another long and draining season. José Mourinho holidayed in the Algarve. Louis van Gaal had his "paradise in Portugal", a short distance up the coast at Vale do Lobo, and Brendan Rodgers pepped up his tan in Marbella.

Arsène Wenger defends Arsenal spending policy from José Mourinho jibes

theguardian.com — Arsène Wenger has recommended that José Mourinho check the "real statistics" if he wants to scrutinise Arsenal's transfer policy, citing his record of developing young players and adding that he does not think it worth listening to the Chelsea manager.

Manchester City ponder fresh Raheem Sterling bid after Liverpool reject £40m

theguardian.com — Manchester City have failed with a renewed bid for Liverpool's Raheem Sterling despite increasing their offer by £10m. The Merseysiders flatly refused £25m plus £5m-worth of add-ons last week and, despite a considerable improvement, they are still not inclined to sell for anything below their valuation of at least £50m.

Roy Hodgson tells Nathaniel Clyne that form is not enough for England

theguardian.com — Roy Hodgson has indicated he will continue with Phil Jones as England's right-back and made it clear to Nathaniel Clyne that he has no right "on the basis of a good season" to think he should take over from the Manchester United defender.

Slovenia 2-3 England | Euro 2016 qualifier match report | Football | The Guardian

theguardian.com — At this rate, it cannot be long before someone in the camp suddenly announces that England are looking good to win Euro 2016. Let us hope they can continue to operate with a measure of restraint and remember, for instance, their opponents are sandwiched between Congo and Cameroon at 48th in Fifa's world rankings.

Roy Hodgson looking for England relief against Slovenia - not more grief

theguardian.com — In the bowels of the Stozice Stadium, Roy Hodgson could be found turning his mind back to the long, difficult days after the World Cup when he tried to get away from everything by heading to the place his son, Chris, keeps in Miami, on the basis that there were much fewer people there to ask questions, try to be sympathetic or anything else to remind him of England's shortcomings in the World Cup.

England progress under Roy Hodgson hard to judge one year after Brazil

theguardian.com — Even now, a year on, it isn't easy looking back and wondering what it was that suddenly emboldened Roy Hodgson to come up with such a line. In fairness, he wasn't the first England manager to fall into the trap, and he probably won't be the last, but this time last year Hodgson was talking in a way we had not heard from him before.

theguardian.com — Micah Richards will take his medical examination at Aston Villa on Tuesday to complete a free transfer from Manchester City and resurrect his career in the Premier League after a year on loan with Fiorentina.
