    THE Premier League is heading towards the final day of the season. There will be four teams heading into the Champions League for next season, but with Liverpool in the Champions League final, does this change anything regarding a potential extra place for the Premier League? 1 How many teams from one country are allowed to play in the Champions League? The maximum any country can have playing in the Champions League is five. Only England, Spain, Germany and Italy can possibly enter five teams as they are the top four associations in Uefa and are awarded the four coveted spots. It used to be only four regardless of what happened in the previous season, until the Europa League winner was given a Champions League place. In 2012, Spurs finished in fourth place and missed out on the Champions League after Chelsea won it. But with UEFA's new expansion idea, soon a team which finishes fifth in the Premier League may also qualify for the Champions League. Had these rules been implemented this season, Tottenham would be on the verge...

    Chelsea fans have reacted with shock after reports that Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts is preparing a 'blockbuster' offer for the club after he came under fire for saying 'muslims are my enemy' in 2012. The Blues are continuing their scramble for new ownership as Roman Abramovich looks to secure the club's future after being sanctioned by the UK government amid his ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin, and Chelsea have been inundated with interest from around the world.  The latest names to be linked with purchasing Chelsea are American tycoon Ken Griffin and Ricketts, who are understood to be readying a huge bid - with Griffin alone having a fortune worth around £20billion ($26.5bn). But Chelsea supporters have been left concerned about Ricketts' involvement after leaked emails from 2012 resurfaced where the 80-year-old made a number of controversial comments about race - saying 'Muslims are my enemy', describing Islam as a 'cult' and laughing at racist jokes. One stunned Chelsea fan claimed he would 'severe ties' with the club if Ricketts were to take charge after his comments came...

    In 2012, he was at Shohe Ohtani High School. He became the first choice in the Japanese league draft, but that was not what he wanted. Instead of going through the NBP, his dream is to become a pioneer by becoming the first Japanese to leave his country’s high school directly in North America.

    LIONEL MESSI must agree an even bigger pay cut to return to Barcelona, according to reports. The Argentine has agreed to halve his enormous wages in order to pen a five-year deal. 4Lionel Messi is currently a free agentCredit: Reuters But no announcement has yet been made, as Barca still can't afford it. According to The Athletic, the Catalan club have a spending limit of around £136million imposed by LaLiga - due to £1.3bn worth of liabilities accrued during Josep Maria Bartomeu's ill-fated tenure as club president. Barca could spend around four times that figure three years ago, but their financial landscape has changed completely. Consequently, new signings Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero are currently unable to be registered. And with Messi now a free agent, Barcelona would not be allowed to register him either. The Argentine, having tried to leave last August, is happier now at Barcelona since Joan Laporta returned as club president in March. But they still require a huge fire sale in order to keep the 34-year-old on the books. Matheus Fernandes had his...

    Draft a tight end? The Dallas Cowboys should turn their focus in the NFL Draft to address their porous defense. Talk about explosive? A Dallas Cowboys’ offense with productive quarterback Dak Prescott at the controls, running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in the backfield and a trio of big-play wide receivers in Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb. Add Florida tight end Kyle Pitts, one of the top prospects at the position in years, and the possibilities are endless. There’s only one problem. You have to stop the other team on occasion if you consistently want to win games.

    JUVENTUS could be forced into transfer listing Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala as the coronavirus crisis cripples the club, according to reports. But the Italian champions will refuse to sell Matthijs de Ligt this summer. 4Cristiano Ronaldo could be sold by Juventus to help cut their massive lossesCredit: AFP or licensors According to calciomercato.com via Football Italia, the Old Lady need to salvage some funds when the transfer market reopens. The club reportedly posted losses of £97.5million earlier this season. And they are therefore bracing themselves to lose some of their biggest names.

    Epicenter of a deadly pandemic. Also there's COVID-19 there. By now, nobody is under the illusion that wealthy Americans are subject to the same laws and regulations governing the rest of the nation. The courts are set up to cater to those with the most lawyers and brush aside those with none; the nation's tax laws are structured to be pointlessly onerous for those with little income, but provide numerous shields behind which the rich can hide their cash; state and federal governments are both filled with elected officials selected by the wealthy and the corporate for their pliability, and provided future campaign money based on how efficiently they convert that pliability into action. Everything is garbage, the nation is inherently corrupt, democracy is hanging by a thread, and the con-artist class is partying it up at Donald Trump's private club, during a pandemic, boozing it up but slightly put out that their cash did not, this New Year's Eve, grant them an expected audience with the nation's god-king of corruption.

Investigators believe two men opened fire after a fight broke out, but officers don’t yet have a clear description of the shooters.

    HOUSTON (AP) – Three people were killed in a shooting at a Houston nightclub where about 30 people had gathered for an open mic night and authorities were searching early Wednesday for suspects, police said. Police were called to the DD Sky Club at about 9:45 p.m. Tuesday on reports of multiple people dead inside, Houston Police Commander Caroleta Johnson told the Houston Chronicle. Once there, officers found three people dead at the scene and a fourth person in critical condition, Johnson said. Investigators believe two men opened fire after a fight broke out, but officers don’t yet have a clear description of the shooters. Johnson said the police department also is investigating whether the nightclub was allowed to be open under current coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Earlier this month, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott allowed bars to open at 50% capacity if county officials agree, but Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo declined to do so for the county that includes Houston.
    So far in October, Denver Public Health & Environment has issued seventeen citations for violating the city's public-health order. Those ticketed include giant retailers such as Walmart, King Soopers and Sam's Club, as well as a restaurant that allegedly allowed a big party to be staged behind its location and even a private school at which a majority of students weren't wearing facial coverings. These enforcement actions have taken place against a troubling backdrop. During his October 13 press conference, Governor Jared Polis shared Colorado's worst COVID-19 data since the pandemic began and noted that Denver is driving the terrible stats, along with Adams County. The numbers in the Mile High are a big reason why Denver Public Schools has now announced that in-person learning for middle school and high school students will be delayed until November 9 at the earliest. Even before Polis's revelations, Mayor Michael Hancock acknowledged that the city had reached a make-or-break moment regarding the novel coronavirus, and teased a new crackdown on those violating health orders in an effort to stave off greater restrictions on capacity...
    CHICAGO — The city is in discussions with the Bears to bring fans back to Soldier Field. Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s administration is talking with officials from the Bears about the move, she said, though she revealed few details when commenting during an unrelated news conference Tuesday. “Like any other Bears fan, of course I would like to be there,” Lightfoot said. “We’ve having conversations with the Bears and we’ll see where they lead.” The Bears’ season officially started Sept. 13, but Soldier Field has been empty of fans due to the coronavirus pandemic. The team has games scheduled through Jan. 3. Other Chicago teams that have played since the start of the pandemic, like the Sox and Cubs, were not able to have fans at their games. That’s because experts have advised against larger gatherings to slow the spread of COVID-19. But other cities have allowed their NFL teams to let groups of fans into home games. The Kansas City Chiefs are allowed to have about 16,000 spectators, for example. Block Club Chicago’s coronavirus coverage is free for all readers....

    Aussie model and influencer Gabrielle “Gabby” Epstein is seemingly revealing as much or more of her taut, tempting body than ever before on her popular Instagram feed. With her post on Thursday, September 17, the 26-year-old continued the trend with another steamy photo upload that included a sizable showing of skin. In the accompanying caption, Epstein lamented the fact that COVID-19 had robber her of the chance to hear Cardi B’s “WAP” in the club. Despite the fact that her latest snap found her posing in what appeared to be a California ghost town — which was further evidenced by the post’s geotag — she still looked club-ready in a sexy pair of cut-off jean shorts and a tiny top that allowed for a serious display of underboob. The sultry shot proved to be an inspiring one for her fans, who quickly filled the comment thread with words of appreciation for the revealing capture. “Omg omg,” exclaimed one admirer. “Love this sooo much.” “Aghhh I live for this photo,” raved another impassioned fan. “Legs for days and days!” appraised a...
