Harry Redknapp’s Ford Capri of a career heads towards its final service — Even on that below-zero day in December 1982 when Harry Redknapp began his managerial career with a 9-0 hammering at Lincoln, the crevices and fissures under his eyes were forming. Now they have deepened, hardened, become sallow. That's what 31 years and more than 1,300 matches - nearly half in the Premier League - do to a manager.

Detroit Lions in the driving seat against Atlanta Falcons at Wembley — Around 84,000 people will swarm into Wembley on Sundaylunchtime to watch the Atlanta Falcons face the Detroit Lions, another sellout for the second of three NFL matches to be staged in London this season. And, for a change, it might be more of contest than a rout.

Detroit Lions’ Calvin Johnson in late fitness test for NFL Wembley game — After the increasingly feverish talk of an NFL franchise coming to London - something the Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank believes is only six to seven years away - a necessary cold compress: when two of the Detroit Lions star players, the quarterback Matthew Stafford and the wide receiver Calvin Johnson, took a train from the team's Berkshire base in Sunningdale to Waterloo this week, nobody recognised them.

Billy Beane can’t get enough of soccer after revolutionising baseball — "Quite frankly, I can't get enough of soccer," says Billy Beane. "I tell my jingoistic friends in the United States there's a reason why it is the world's No1 sport. The rest of the planet can't be wrong."

Lynn Howells: Romania will surprise people at the Rugby World Cup — Lynn Howells whistles through his lips as he remembers his first day coaching Romania's rugby players.
