Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

BMW Championship 2018: Justin Rose hoping to recall Philadelphia ‘feel-good factor’

That city is Philadelphia and venue for this week’s BMW Championship and the third event of the lucrative FedEx Cup ‘Play-Off’ Series.

Philadelphia is known affectionately as the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ or ‘The Cradle of Liberty’ and it is where you will find a statue of the fictional Rocky Balboa of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky movies and it is the city also immortalised by Elton John in his hit song ‘Philadelphia Freedom’.

The city is also special to Rose having captured the 2010 AT & T National and his second of now nine PGA Tour successes on this week’s host Aronimink GC.

Just seven miles away is Merion GC and where Rose brilliantly captured the 2013 US Open.

But then that was all of a respective eigth and five years ago as Rose rightfully points out.

“The golf course doesn’t know it this week, you can never kind of count on past victories or past performances but absolutely, I think there’s always a bit of a feel-good factor when you come back to an area, you enjoy it, invokes good memories but obviously as of tomorrow it’s all about doing a job,” said Rose.

And it led to Rose being asked if he’s returned to Merion since his 2013 triumph.

“I’m actually a member of Merion, being back every year since. I try to make a trip every year just with some friends and walk down memory lane and the first time I went back I think I went back with about 8, 10 friends and the just had a good couple days and played Pine Valley,” he said.

“Guys from the UK made it a bit of a golf trip. That was fun. They all came dressed in my final round outfit, white trousers, blue shirt. Slightly embarrassing but it was fun.

“I wore something different. They had everything ready for me hung up in a locker.

“That’s what you’re wearing.” It was a bit of a recreation. The club stuck the pin back left where it was for us on Sunday. Made it a special memory and it was fun to experience that with all of my close friends I’ve grown up since I was a young boy.

“But, you know, I enjoy going back every year. I like to do it after the FedExCup, in October for me that’s the favorite time of year to play golf. Fall golf is nothing better for me especially up here in the Northeast. It reminds me sweater weather. That’s how I love to play golf.

“It also reminds me of how I grew up playing golf in the UK. I try to do it once a year. Trickier now with the course being renovated.”

Rose, and as currently No. 3 on the FedEx Cup points table, tees-up in the opening round of the $US 9m BMW Championship alongside No. 1 Bryson DeChambeau and No. 2 Dustin Johnson.
