  2. From non-league to the silver screen


    Coming to cinemas near you...


    It's not as far-fetched as it sounds.

    According to the Daily Mail, the Leicester striker met with a Hollywood screenwriter to make a film about his life.

    We are pretty sure that goal would make an appearance.

  3. 'The pile-on of all pile-ons'


    Barry Roche

    Morecambe goalkeeper Barry Roche says his 93rd-minute equaliser against Portsmouth was better than any "top corner or penalty" save.

    The 33-year-old headed home Shaun Miller's corner to earn his side a point on Tuesday evening. 

    "I didn't have a clue how to celebrate," he told BBC Radio Lancashire. "I jumped and then there was the pile-on of all pile-ons. I couldn't breathe so I had to throw a few off me."

    How will he feel about having to go back in net after all that?

  4. 'Who better to fight than the top guy?'


    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Amir Khan

    You've probably seen that Amir Khan will fight Mexico's Saul Alvarez for the WBC world middleweight title on 7 May in Las Vegas.

    Well, Amir's father, Shah, has been talking to BBC Radio 5 live about the fight.

    "Alvarez is the next best thing out there after Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao," he said.

    "Floyd's already saying he's retired, Manny’s hoping to retire and I think Alvarez is the guy at the top at the moment. Who better to fight then the top guy?"

  5. Can anyone stop Leeds in 2016?

    Rugby league

    Danny McGuire

    We're just over 24 hours away from the start of the new Super League season, and last season's treble winners Leeds Rhinos go into the 2016 campaign as the team to beat.

    It's been a transitional winter for Leeds. Veterans Kevin Sinfield, Jamie Peacock and Kylie Leuluai have all left the club, while Danny McGuire has been appointed as the Rhinos' new captain.

  6. De Jong joins Gerrard at Galaxy


    LA Galaxy have signed Nigel de Jong. The 31-year-old Dutch midfielder joins Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole at the MLS club, after his contract with AC Milan was terminated.

  7. Pellegrini in for Neville?

    Football gossip


    Manuel Pellegrini, meanwhile, could replace Gary Neville as Valencia manager when he leaves Manchester City at the end of the season, claims Talksport.

  8. Neville's Nou Camp return

    Gary Neville

    As well as tonight's two Premier League fixtures, we've also got live text commentary of Valencia's Copa del Rey semi-final first leg away to Barcelona.

    For Valencia boss Gary Neville, it's a return to the ground where he won the 1999 Champions League with Manchester United. 

    "I hope on Wednesday we can have another special memory," he said. Well, the omens aren't very good...

    Neville has yet to win a league match since being appointed in December and home fans booed his team after the 1-0 defeat by Sporting Gijon on Sunday. Oh, and Barca are looking more than capable of finishing the season with five trophies...

  9. Crunch time

    Aberdeen v Celtic (19:45 GMT)

    Celtic Abdereen
    Image caption: Celtic are six points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the table - could tonight be the last chance for Derek McInnes' side?

    There's also a pretty big game in the Scottish Premiership tonight... 

    Aberdeen winger Jonny Hayes is fit to play after being bitten by a dog. Defender Mark Reynolds returns from suspension and new arrival Simon Church joins the squad but midfielders Ryan Jack and Willo Flood remain out.

    Deadline day signings Colin Kazim-Richards and Patrick Roberts are not likely to feature for Celtic. Defender Jozo Simunovic is out with a knee injury, while Kris Commons, Tom Rogic and Charlie Mulgrew are all fitness doubts.

  10. Lawro's predictions

    Watford v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Ex-Liverpool defender

    Chelsea drew with Watford in Guus Hiddink's first game in charge but the Blues look like a different team now.

    Players like Eden Hazard have come back into form and seem to have the spring back in their step - I can see them going on a really good run.

    Prediction: 0-2.

  11. Equal terms on transport

    Australian sports groups have been told to end a longstanding practice where male athletes enjoy better travel standards than female counterparts.

    The government said there was "no defensible reason" for this, and it could affect their future funding.

    It is a move that comes after a 2012 public furore over the better treatment of the men's national basketball team. They flew business class to the London Olympics while the more successful women's team flew economy.

    Full story here.

  12. Barking mad


    No Antoine Griezmanns were harmed in the making of this tweet...

  14. Team news

    Everton v Newcastle Utd (19:45 GMT)


    New Everton signing Oumar Niasse, who has joined from Lokomotiv Moscow, is not yet eligible to make his debut. Kevin Mirallas and Muhamed Besic remain out with injuries, while Tim Howard will be assessed after suffering a knock in training on Monday.

    Andros Townsend could make his Newcastle debut, while deadline-day signing Seydou Doumbia may be available if his visa arrives in time. Jack Colback and Paul Dummett could return from injuries.

  15. Lawro's prediction

    Everton v Newcastle Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Ex-Liverpool defender

    Everton have not won at Goodison Park in the Premier League since 21 November but I think the Toffees will put that right on Wednesday.

    Newcastle went for it in the transfer window because they were buying to stay in the league but their new signings will take time to settle in.

    Prediction: 2-1.

  16. Commentator's notes

    Everton v Newcastle Utd (19:45 GMT)

    Conor McNamara

    BBC Radio 5 live commentator

    This game comes 11 days after Newcastle's last official fixture - the less said the better about last week's 6-0 defeat to Sunderland in a behind-closed-doors friendly. 

    Everton have played two cup games in that time. The pressure on Roberto Martinez was not helped by surrendering a first-leg lead to miss out on the League Cup final but Everton did play well for long patches against Manchester City.

  17. Commentator's notes

    Watford v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)

    Alistair Bruce-Ball

    BBC Radio 5 live commentator

    Guus Hiddink's latest spell as Chelsea boss started with a 2-2 draw against Watford on Boxing Day and they remain unbeaten since then.

    It was a pleasure to watch them against MK Dons on Sunday, when they played some great attacking football with Eden Hazard, Oscar, Cesc Fabregas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Diego Costa dovetailing beautifully, but Watford certainly won't be so generous with their defending.

    And we'll keep a keen ear on the Chelsea fans and what they have to say now that John Terry has confirmed that, as things stand, the club won't be renewing his contract next season.

  18. Long-term prospect


    Good news for 18-year-old Josh Onomah, who has come through the youth system at Spurs and has made a handful of first team appearances.

  19. Team news

    Watford v Chelsea (19:45 GMT)


    Watford midfielder Mario Suarez is available for his debut after joining from Fiorentina at the weekend. Jose Holebas may start at left-back as Chelsea loanee Nathan Ake is ineligible to face his parent club.

    Chelsea could recall Kurt Zouma and Cesar Azpilicueta, who were unused substitutes in the win against MK Dons. Willian will be monitored after an opponent trod on his foot in Sunday's game, while recent signing Pato lacks match fitness and a late decision will be made on his availability.

  20. England just short of record score

    First ODI, South Africa v England

    England made their second highest total in a one-day international as they reached 399-9 against South Africa in Bloemfontein.

    Jos Buttler struck a 73-ball century to help the tourists to their best score in an overseas ODI. Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Alex Hales all made half-centuries in the first game of the five-match series.

    England fell just short of their best one-day score, the 408-9 made against New Zealand at Edgbaston in June.

    The best ODI score of all time is Sri Lanka's 443-9 against the Netherlands in 2006.
