  • "We will not hit the debt ceiling," Ryan says. This is all a bit rich. Just go ahead and do it. You could have done it months ago. Instead, it will be a stupid game of brinksmanship like it always is. It's a pointless self-inflicted wound on the US every time it comes around.

  • Stoke manager Mark Hughes wants a reaction from his players against Chelsea on Saturday following their Carabao Cup defeat to Bristol City.Hughes described his side's performance at Ashton Gate as "poor" as a strong team containing the likes of Kurt Zouma, Bruno Martins Indi, Darren Fletcher and Peter Crouch were beaten 2-0 by the Sky Bet Championship club. Stoke resume Premier League action against the champions at the bet365 Stadium at the weekend and Hughes is confident of an improved display. "I know we will be better against Chelsea on Saturday, but that isn't much consolation at the moment," he told the club's official website. "We need a reaction. That's what we will drill into the players going into the Chelsea game because that was unacceptable." Hughes will hope captain Ryan Shawcross returns to training before the end of the week to prove his fitness as on-loan defender Zouma is ineligible against Chelsea. Meanwhile, Bristol City assistant head co..

  • No happy start for Roy Hodgson as Crystal Palace misery continuesRoy Hodgson's first game as Crystal Palace manager ended in a 1-0 defeat to Southampton as they set two unwanted records at Selhurst Park.Steven Davis' early goal for Saints means the Eagles have become the first ever top-flight team to lose each of their opening five league fixtures without scoring a goal. Their pursuit of a first Premier League goal of the campaign is now longer than Newcastle's wait of 438 minutes in the 2005-06 season.It took only six minutes for Southampton to expose the extent of the challenge Hodgson must overcome. Dusan Tadic beat Jeffrey Schlupp and though his cross was palmed out by Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, Davis was on hand to tuck it in as the appointment of the former England manager in place of Frank de Boer paid no instant dividend.On-loan Ruben Loftus-Cheek - one of very few plus points in Palace's miserable season so far, combined with Andros Townsend af..

  • Barry matches Premier League landmark in stalemateWest Brom held West Ham to a forgettable 0-0 draw as the Hammers continued to ease the pressure on boss Slaven Bilic. The visitors claimed their second clean sheet in a week after a 2-0 win over Huddersfield and took their first away point in the Premier League this season. West Ham remain in the bottom three after five games but there were at least more shoots of recovery for the visitors at The Hawthorns on Saturday. They lacked a cutting edge but claimed a useful point which could prove crucial for Bilic, even at this early stage of the season. Pedro Obiang struck the bar from 45 yards but there was little quality from either side, with James Morrison badly missing a header and Kieran Gibbs seeing a shot blocked for the Baggies.West Brom boss Tony Pulis wanted his side to hit back following their 3-1 defeat at Brighton last week and was rewarded with a clean sheet, if not a victory.Gareth Barry equalled Ryan Giggs' Premie..

  • Blackpool brush aside Oxford to extend home runA dominant first-half display helped Blackpool to their seventh successive home league win with a 3-1 victory over Oxford.Kyle Vassell and Callum Cooke struck early, before James Henry gave Oxford late hope in the first meeting between the sides since 2000, only for Vassell to strike again to seal the win.Blackpool were ahead after six minutes through a stunning goal from Vassell. The forward held off his marker and hit a left-foot shot from 25 yards which curled in low off the right-hand post.The lead was doubled nine minutes later with another superb strike as Cooke picked the ball up 25 yards out and rifled it into the same corner.It was all one-way traffic as Curtis Tilt should have made it three soon after but blasted over from four yards before Vassell forced a smart save two minutes later.Oxford started the second half much better and had their first effort on target with Ryan Ledson's low shot after 52 minutes that was e..

  • Wigan ease to victory over Bristol RoversWigan Athletic eased to a 3-0 victory over 10-man Bristol Rovers at the DW Stadium in a one-sided Sky Bet League One encounter.The result was never really in doubt from the moment Rovers centre-back Ryan Sweeney was sent off on the half-hour mark for pulling down Michael Jacobs, and Nick Powell rifled home the resulting free-kick from 20 yards.Will Grigg made it 2-0 four minutes into the second period - his first goal of the season - which was a far more accurate reflection of the game as a whole.Wigan gave themselves a scare with 10 minutes to go when Lee Evans was adjudged to have handled a Tom Lockyer free-kick inside the home box but goalkeeper Jamie Jones dived to his right and kept out Ellis Harrison's penalty.Gavin Massey added goal number three in the fifth added minute to underline Wigan's superiority.
