    "Moores depends too much on facts and figures and data analysis. He is too consumed by the opposition because he has no experience to fall back on in international cricket."

  77. Di Maria still believes - Giggs


    Angel di Maria

    Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has refuted suggestions Angel Di Maria is suffering from a lack of confidence.

    The Argentine playmaker, who became British football's most expensive signing when he arrived from Real Madrid for £59.7m in August, has scored once in 19 games and has failed to finish any of United's last three Premier League matches.

    "I think his confidence is fine," Giggs said. "Players get used to different leagues, sometimes quickly and sometimes it takes a bit of time."

  78. Murray up to fourth in world


    Andy Murray celebrates

    To complete an enjoyable weekend for Andy Murray - Davis Cup success and a Scottish Cup quarter-final victory for Hibs - the Scot has this morning moved up a place to fourth in the world rankings.

    Great Britain team-mate James Ward has ascended to 108th place.

  79. Mercedes won't stop Hamilton-Rosberg rivalry

    Formula 1

    Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton

    Formula 1 team Mercedes will not try to stop the fierce rivalry between their drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, team boss Toto Wolff says.

    Hamilton beat Rosberg to the world title last season in a campaign marked by an ongoing feud between the two drivers, which came to a head when they collided at the Belgian Grand Prix.

    But Wolff said: "We are not going to change our approach in terms of philosophy on how to let the drivers race. Even if it is not always easy.

    "If you have no emotion in this sport, if you stay rational all the time, you lose a lot and the sport loses a lot and the way we run the team is with emotion."

  81. Rangers will hold cash investigation - Park


    New Rangers director Douglas Park has promised an investigation to uncover why the Glasgow club spent more than £70m in the past four years. The bus tycoon was invited to join Dave King's new-look board after the old regime was voted out on Friday.

    "There has been an absence of corporate governance and time will be required to study the various contracts and deals which have been put in place," he said.

    Cathy Freeman

    This morning we've been asking you to tell us your sporting heroines, in honour of newly crowned skeleton world champion Lizzy Yarnold paying tribute to her childhood heroine, Denise Lewis. Here are some of your suggestions so far:

    Alan Simon: Cathy Freeman. Still get goose bumps thinking how she unified Australia by winning 400m gold at the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

    Pippa: My sporting heroine is Sally Gunnell, I'll never forget that Olympic Gold in 1992.

  83. 'Kane should miss Euro Under-21 finals'


    Harry Kane

    Jan Vertonghen has cautioned Tottenham team-mate Harry Kane against making himself available for this summer's European Under-21 Championship.

    The Belgian centre-back fears that the striker, who is expected to be summoned for the full England squad next week, could suffer from burnout after a gruelling season.

    "Of course England want him but I think he needs his rest for next season. I know a player always wants to play but sometimes you have to be careful. You have to think about what's going to come."

  84. Post update

    Andy Murray and Leon Smith

    In the wake of Great Britain's Davis Cup win over the United States, Judy Murray has tweeted her congratulations: "Big huge well done to GB captain Leon Smith. 18 years ago I took him on as a 21-year-old apprentice coach. You've come a long way baby xxx."

  85. England wobble against Bangladesh


    Squeaky-bum time for England in Adelaide. They've just lost two wickets in quick succession.

    First Ian Bell - who had batted nicely for 63 - was caught behind off Rubel Hossain, then just three balls later out-of-form skipper Eoin Morgan hoisted the same man to deep fine leg. Big pressure on Joe Root and James Taylor now.

    155 runs still needed, with 23 overs left. Follow the latest in our cricket live text.

  86. Cardiff brings back the bluebird


    Cardiff City crest

    Remember the Cardiff City emblem saga?

    Owner Vincent Tan incurred the wrath of many fans in 2008 when he changed the badge from one featuring the club's traditional symbol of a bluebird to an image of a red dragon - part of a drama that also saw the club's colours changed from blue to red.

    Well, guess what - the bluebird is back. Cardiff have this morning unveiled a new crest, and it seems the blue is the new red. Cardiff City fans, what do you make of this U-turn?

  87. Balotelli 'an absolute waste of time'


    BBC Radio 5 live

    Mario Balotelli

    It had been a few weeks since someone had a dig a Mario Balotelli but Mark Lawrenson took up the cudgels yesterday by describing the Liverpool striker as "an absolute waste of time".

    Reflecting on the goalless FA Cup quarter-final draw with Blackburn at Anfield, the former Liverpool defender said: "Forget about Mario Balotelli. He shouldn't be anywhere near this team.

    "I can see why Brendan Rodgers threw him on against Blackburn as he might just create something but 99 times out of 100 he will let you down."

  88. Illness rules Froome out


    Chris Froome

    Team Sky's Chris Froome will miss the Tirreno-Adriatico stage race because of illness.

    The seven-day race, which begins on Wednesday in Italy, was expected to contain the four favourites for the Tour de France - Froome, Spain's Alberto Contador, Colombian Nairo Quintana and defending champion Vincenzo Nibali of Italy.

    "Still not feeling well so won't be making it to #TirrenoAdriatico2015. Really disappointed but health comes first," the 2013 Tour de France winner tweeted.

  89. England lose Hales in pursuit


    England are continuing to look a little nervy in their pursuit of 276 to beat Bangladesh at the Cricket World Cup.

    They've just lost Alex Hales, caught behind off the bowling of Mashrafe Mortaza for 26. They are now 103-2 after 22 overs, with Joe Root joining Ian Bell at the crease.

    You didn't expect it to be straightforward, did you? Keep up with the latest in our cricket live text.

  90. Get Involved


    Lizzy Yarnold

    As ever on Sportsday, we want to hear from you this morning.

    Over the weekend, Great Britain's Lizzy Yarnold won skeleton's World Championship. When she was younger, Yarnold - who is also Olympic champion - wanted to be Denise Lewis. The 2004 Olympic heptathlon champion was also a massive inspiration to rugby player Maggie Alphonsi, who helped guide England to World Cup success last year.

    So we want to know, who were and are your female sporting inspirations? Let us know on Twitter using the hashtag #mysportingheroine, and via the BBC Sport Facebook page.

  91. Bale in firing line

    Back pages

    AS back page

    In Spain, AS have devoted their front page to the BBC - no, not us, the Real Madrid trio of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo.

    After another underwhelming result - defeat by Athletic Bilbao - the Spanish public has had enough, according to a survey conducted by the paper. They want Real to switch back to a 4-4-2 - and 46% of readers would put Bale on the bench.

  92. Lyon lay waste to Montpellier

    Back pages

    Monday's L'Equipe front page

    In France, one result dominates the back pages - Lyon's superb 5-1 victory at Montpellier.

    The win restored Lyon's one-point lead over Paris Saint-Germain at the top of the table, with L'Equipe saying they were "carried by the remarkable [Nabil] Fekir", who scored two goals.

  93. Villa face stadium sanction

    Back pages

    Monday's Daily Mail back page

    There's more on the seat-smashing malarkey on the back page of the Daily Mail.

    The Mail's reporter Laurie Whitwell says: "Villa face a large fine or even a partial stadium closure if negligence is established."

    There is also an interesting rugby line from Scotland's Stuart Hogg, who claims that England have "no respect" for Scottish rugby.

  94. Replays could be weeks away

    Back pages

    Monday's The Sun back page

    An interesting line on the back page of The Sun this morning - they are reporting that the FA Cup replay between Liverpool and Blackburn could take as much as a month to be played.

    The paper's Martin Blackburn writes: "The FA Cup descended into farce. Rovers face playing three games in 100 hours."

    There is also a mention of Tony Pulis, who has called for fans who smashed seats in Saturday's FA Cup tie between Aston Villa and West Brom to receive life bans.

  95. Murray leads Britain to victory

    Back pages

    Monday's Telegraph Sport front page

    Let's have a look at what's making the back pages this morning. We begin with the Telegraph, which leads on Great Britain's Davis Cup victory over USA in Glasgow.

    The paper's Simon Briggs writes: "For Great Britain to knock them out twice in successive years is a serious achievement," recalling last year's victory over the same opponents.

    There's also a mention of that damning cycling report, under the headline 'Cycling's drug cheats exposed.'

  96. England chasing 276 to beat Bangladesh


    Stuart Broad tumbles to the ground

    Throughout this morning, we'll be keeping you abreast of the latest developments from the Cricket World Cup, where England need to beat Bangladesh to keep their hopes of qualifying for the quarter-finals alive.

    So how are they doing? Well, not too badly at the moment. Bowling first, England restricted Bangladesh to 275-7, despite a superb partnership of 141 between Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim. James Anderson and Chris Jordan claimed two wickets apiece.

    Chasing 276, England were going along smoothly, but they have just lost the wicket of Moeen Ali, putting them on 47-1 after eight overs. You can follow the action over-by-over in our dedicated live page, and of course we will keep you updated on the crucial moments here on Sportsday.

  97. Doping culture remains in cycling - report


    Lance Armstrong

    More bad news for the beleaguered sport of cycling this morning. A landmark report has found that a culture of doping still exists in the sport.

    The report, by the Cycling Independent Reform Commission, suggests that riders are still using banned substances, often in small quantities to avoid detection, and that doping is endemic in amateur cycling.

    You can read the full and comprehensive report from Matt Slater here, and our sports editor Dan Roan has also written an analysis of the findings - which you can read here.

  98. Wenger admits 'sacrificing' FA Cup


    Arsene Wenger

    Let's start with a quick look at what's making the headlines this morning.

    Ahead of his side's clash with Manchester United, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has raised eyebrows by admitting that he used to sacrifice the FA Cup in previous seasons in order to boost the Gunners' European prospects.

    "The FA Cup was badly positioned before the Champions League - you always had decisions to make," Wenger said. "A player who was a bit on the edge - what do you sacrifice? It was always the FA Cup in the end."

    Interesting stuff. What do you make of that revelation, Arsenal fans?

  99. Post update

    Hello and welcome to Monday's edition of Sportsday - our rolling digest of the latest football news and other headlines from across the world of sport.

    We'll also be bringing you the best of social media and we'll have a Get Involved topic for you to get your teeth into - more on that later.

    Ready to go? Then let's begin.

  100. All about the Cups

    Craig Conway and Raheem Sterling

    It's all about the Cups this morning.

    It's been a weekend high on drama - if a little low on goals - in the FA Cup, with Aston Villa through to the semi-finals and Liverpool and Bradford taken to replays by Blackburn and Reading. Of course, there's still plenty more to come - we'll be bringing you all the build-up ahead of Manchester United v Arsenal, which kicks off at 19:45 GMT.

    There was also success for Great Britain in the Davis Cup - but now Andy Murray and co face a quandary over where to play the home quarter-final against France.

    No replays or home comforts in the Cricket World Cup - where England need to beat Bangladesh to avoid elimination. We'll be bringing you all the latest updates as they attempt to chase down the target...
