return to England’s:

latest news at page 1:
    Modern Patriots legend Devin McCourty was asked about a return to New England for 2023 and he’d be up for it if another legend returns too: Tom Brady. Since being drafted in the first round by the New England Patriots out of Rutgers in 2010, Devin McCourty has enjoyed immense success. He’s been a three-time Second-Team All-Pro selection and won three Super Bowls when Tom Brady helmed the offense. But now his time with the team who drafted him could be nearing its end. McCourty is a free agent this offseason and will be 36 years old whenever the 2023 NFL season kicks off. For a defensive back, that’s nearing uncharted territory in the modern iteration of the league. However, McCourty is not shutting the door on a return to New England. He does, however, have a condition for that.Devin McCourty would return to Patriots if Tom Brady does tooDuring an appearance on NFL Gameday, McCourty was asked what Tom Brady should do this offseason. The 13-year veteran defensive back said he thinks that the quarterback should go back to the Patriots...
    Getty New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick T here is no denying that New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones has taken a step back in 2022 and NFL analysts believe that he could face some competition or even be replaced in 2023. On FS1, NFL analyst Jason McIntyre stated that former Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo could return to New England. “I will go with a major curveball, and I will say Jimmy Garoppolo lands with the New England Patriots,” McIntyre said. “Colin, if you remember, Belichick drafted Garoppolo in 2014. You’ve been saying for weeks now that (Patriots owner Robert) Kraft is going to say to Bill, ‘Hey, what’s going on, Bill? Are you going to make some staff changes?’ Bill will say, ‘You know what? You made me get rid of Jimmy Garoppolo. Remember when Tom Brady and his wife complained to you? Bring me back Garoppolo and I’ll show you I can get to the playoffs and do some damage.’ Mac Jones, I think we would agree he’s regressed a little bit. I think Jimmy...
    Getty New England Patriots A s the 2022 NFL regular season draws to a close, teams are looking for an extra edge as they make a push for the playoffs. A former New England Patriots start could be just what one AFC team needs. The Tennessee Titans are currently 7-6 and are at the top of the AFC South but have struggled as of late. The Titans lost their last three games including a loss to their in-division rival Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14. Tennessee’s defense allowed 36 points to Jacksonville. Its defense has also struggled with injuries with starting linebacker David Long Jr. recently being placed on injured reserve. With the trajectory that the Titans are on, Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox believes that Tennessee should try and sign Patriots legend Dont’a Hightower. “If Hightower can be convinced to play outside of New England, the Tennessee Titans would be a logical destination,” Knox said. “The Titans are fading fast, and after losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, the proverbial door in the division is still open. Adding...

    DOCTORS across England have been put on alert for signs of deadly camel flu among Three Lions fans returning from the World Cup. The UK Health Security Agency has urged clinicians to look out for people suffering from a fever and breathing difficulties. 1Fans travelling to Qatar for the World Cup have been advised to avoid touching the mammals as they can carry MERS, which is related to CovidCredit: AFP Nearly 1,000 people have died from camel flu – or Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) - in recent years. And cases could now rise due to the huge numbers of fans who flocked to Qatar for the World Cup and who may have been exposed to camels. MERS is far deadlier than Covid 19 – more than a third of people who catch it die compared to less than 4% of Covid sufferers. The briefing note sent out by the HSA states: “Clinicians and public health teams should specifically be alert to the possibility of MERS in returning travellers from the World Cup.  “The risk of infection to UK residents...

    MAURICIO POCHETTINO has revealed he is open to returning to the Premier League, leaving Tottenham fans wondering what the future might hold. Pochettino, 50, enjoyed five years with the North London outfit before he was sacked in 2019. 1Mauricio Pochettino has opened the door to a Spurs returnCredit: AFP Since then Spurs are onto their third permanent manager after sacking Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo before landing Antonio Conte. Under much of their time with Pochettino Spurs were a Champions League team and even made the final in 2019, when they lost 2-0 to Liverpool. On the prospect of a return to the Premier League, Pochettino told talkSPORT: "I miss the Premier League. "Why not (return to manage in England)? We are open. "I love England, I love living in London and Barcelona. "But it's like my house and home. I love being in England.

    HARRY MAGUIRE has praised Marcus Rashford for his spectacular England return. Rashford scored twice against Wales on his first Three Lions start since June 2021. 1Harry Maguire praised Marcus Rashford after he scored twice against WalesCredit: PA Maguire, his club captain at Manchester United, said: “I am really pleased for Marcus. “For the last year or so he has been in and out of the England team and set up. “He has really found his form again for Manchester United and he is a massive player for our club, throughout a long career, you will always have ups and downs and it is all about how you bounce back when you are out of form. “He has kept working hard and done that tirelessly. I can’t speak highly enough of Marcus. “He is a wonderful man and a great player. “He showed he belongs on this stage.” Rashford’s form dipped after he suffered racial abuse for his penalty miss in the final of the Euros. A shoulder injury also restricted him and Gareth Southgate recalled him only for the World...
    GARETH SOUTHATE stressed the starting XI against Iran has earned the right to face the United States.

It was certainly not a blockbuster for the crowd of 68463. Yet starting with Wales on Tuesday, and surely into the knockout rounds, Southgate is certain to mix and match both his formations - and personnel - depending on the opposition. Had his Three Lions not humiliated Iran 6-2, then England would have probably started with a back three and wing-backs last night. He will now think about ditching the back four for what is now an intriguing game...

    FOXBOROUGH — After losing their 13 consecutive games in the series, the Jets traveled to Gillette Stadium looking for their first win in the building since the 2010 playoffs. Gang Green also was looking for its first win against New England since 2015. In a low-scoring game, the Patriots extended their winning streak. The Patriots (6-4) defeated the Jets (6-4) 10-3 in a defensive battle on a sunny, cold, 37-degree day at Gillette Stadium with wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour. The win extended New England’s win streak against Gang Green to 14 games. The Jets were also denied the chance to move into first place in the AFC East. With the loss, New York is now in last place in the division. The Jets hadn’t won in Foxborough since 2010, when they defeated the Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round. With five seconds in the game, Marcus Jones scored a 84-yard punt return touchdown to win the game. The score was the NFL’s first touchdown on a punt return this season. “The blame is on me,” special...
    Getty New England Patriots T he New England Patriots were victorious in Week 11 against the New York Jets and one rookie stole the show. With New England’s 10-3 win over the Jets, the Patriots are out of the bottom of the AFC East and actually own a three game winning streak. The win was crucial as the team began a stretch of three games in 12 days. While a crucial win, the victory was far from pretty. The game featured 17 punts and one return ended up winning the game for New England. With less than 30 seconds remaining in the game, rookie Marcus Jones returned a punt for what ended up being the only touchdown of the game. The touchdown was the first of Jones’ career and also the first punt return touchdown of the entire 2022 NFL season. The rookie was also lucky enough to have both of his parents present at Gillette Stadium in what was their first trip to New England this season.

    GARETH SOUTHGATE might be keeping his World Cup plans a secret but Luke Shaw can be pretty sure that he will be on the plane to Qatar. England boss Southgate is refusing to reveal the identity of the 55 players he has chosen as the basis for his travelling party before whittling it down to 26 names next month. 2Shaw impressed for Man Utd at Stamford Bridge on Saturday eveningCredit: Getty 2The England left-back was defensively solid and assisted the equaliserCredit: Getty But Manchester United defender Shaw will know deep down inside that he can start packing his suitcase after recapturing his form at just the right time.

    Getty New England Patriots QB Mac Jones The New England Patriots have a chance to get their starting quarterback back under center in Week 6. While there doesn’t seem to be a rush with the success of Bailey Zappe, Mac Jones seems close to making his return. Jones suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Jones has a “decent chance” of playing in Week 6. 2022 hasn’t gone to plan for Jones. Through the first three games of the season, he has completed 66 percent of his passes for 786 yards and two touchdowns. Jones also added five interceptions to his resume and went 1-2 in games he started.What Are Patriots Coaches Saying?New England coaches are also making it seem as though Jones will return. Patriots quarterbacks coach Joe Judge said earlier this week that Jones is “doing everything he can physically to get back on the field full-time for us. “He’s doing everything he can possible mentally he can to prepare for the game. He comes...
    Getty New England Patriots The New England Patriots can use all the help they can get on offense, and it seems as though that is exactly what they will get. New England has been without Jakobi Meyers in its last two games. The pass catcher has been dealing with a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines. But according to Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald, Meyers will return when the Patriots play the Detroit Lions in Week 5. “WR Jakobi Meyers is expected to play tomorrow against the Lions, per league source,” Callahan tweeted. “Meyers has missed two straight games with a knee injury.” The wide receiver was limited at all three practices this week. He was also limited in all three practices the week prior. Meyers got off to a good start this season. After a five-catch, 55-yard performance in Week 1, he had nine receptions for 95 yards in Week 2 per Pro Football Reference. With Bailey Zappe poised to get his first NFL start, Meyers can serve as a security blanket for...
    Getty New England Patriots T he New England Patriots need all the help they can get on offense and there is a chance they get some in Week 5. Fans in New England were looking forward to seeing Tyquan Thornton play this season after he was drafted in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. With him performing well in training camp, the hype only grew. But Thornton suffered a fractured clavicle in the preseason which required surgery towards the end of August. That earned the rookie a spot on injured reserve but Week 5 is the first week Thornton is available to be activated. Patriots radio color commentator and former New England quarterback Scott Zolak said that the wide receiver is close to making a return. “@scottzolak always dropping the nuggets out of nowhere, this time saying rookie WR Tyquan Thornton is “getting really back to normal” and “close” to a return… Thornton is eligible to come off of IR this week following surgery on his collarbone in August,” NBC Sports Boston’s Patriots Coverage. .@scottzolak always dropping...

But one mistake by Kyle Walker was enough to allow man of the match Giacomo Raspadori to grab the only goal. Eric Dier’s return and Jude Bellingham’s continuing progress were the only significant positives from another dismal night in this competition. The most worrying thing is that England’s starting 11 for their opening World Cup game against Iran in less than two months may well not look much different from this. READ MORE...
    Getty New England Patriots, Bill Belichick Revenge games haven’t gone well for NFL players this year. Baker Mayfield couldn’t knock off the Cleveland Browns, and Russell Wilson came up short in Week 1 vs. the Seattle Seahawks. The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely hoping things will be better for non-QBs in similar situations. Gunner Olszewski takes on the New England Patriots in Week 2. The former Pro-Bowl return man wants to stick it to his former team. Olszewski went to the Pro Bowl as a return man for the Patriots and played the same role for New England in 2021. The Patriots didn’t bring Olszewski back to start this season, and the 25-year-old landed with the Steelers. Ahead of the Week 2 clash between Olszewski’s current team and his old one, the Texan is predictably feeling some additional motivation. “Anytime you play the ex, you want to show out,” Olszewski said via Teresa Varley of Steelers.com. “Any time I get the ball, I want to do something with it.

    CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Gareth Bale led Wales to the World Cup for the first time in 64 years by beating Ukraine 1-0 to take the final European spot in Qatar on Sunday, ending war-torn Ukraine’s bid for qualification. The only goal of an emotionally charged, tight game in a rainy Welsh capital came when Bale’s free kick in the 34th minute was inadvertently headed into his own net by Andriy Yarmolenko. Wales will now open at the World Cup against the United States on Nov. 21 before playing Iran and England. The Welsh also played their neighbors at the 2016 European Championship when they lost to England in the group stage but still went on to reach the semifinals at their first tournament since the 1958 World Cup. The trip to Qatar gives Bale — British soccer’s most decorated foreign export at Real Madrid — a chance to finally play on the sport’s biggest stage. But the five-time Champions League winner is without a club for next season after being released by Madrid. While saying he has “loads” of...
    Getty Marcus Jones The New England Patriots were high on rookie cornerback Marcus Jones. The electric Jones is a little undersized at 5-foot-8, but he seemingly makes up for any height deficiencies with tenacity, effort, and blazing speed. In a recent mailbag on Patriots.com, a reader asked Mike Dussault for his take on Jones and another Patriots rookie corner Jack Jones. Dussault isn’t sure Marcus Jones will be able to step in and play a role for New England on defense. However, at the very least, Dussault sees Jones making an immediate impact as a kick returner. Jones was arguably the best return man in college football in 2021. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared him to Kansas City Chiefs special teams great Dante Hall. Jones’ ability as a return man seems to be the only aspect of his game that scouts are unanimously thrilled about, and thus the role in New England is likely his to lose.

    21. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (10-7) LAST SEASON: The Patriots spent heavily in free agency last offseason and got great production in return from new additions Matt Judon, Davon Godchaux and Hunter Henry. Still, they got off to a 2-4 start, which included a loss to Tom Brady and Tampa Bay in his return to face his former team. It turned out to be an inflection point. A subsequent seven-game win streak briefly catapulted New England into first place in the AFC East, a position it hadn’t held since Brady’s departure. That was erased by three losses in the final four games, setting up a wild-card playoff matchup with Buffalo. New England’s return to the postseason lasted that one game as the Bills rolled to a 47-17 win. FREE AGENCY/TRADES: Traded G Shaq Mason to Buccaneers and LB Chase Winovich to Browns. Lost CB J.C.

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass (AP) — Cornerback Malcolm Butler is returning to the New England Patriots, where he went from Super Bowl star to the bench. The hero of the Patriots’ 2014 championship — who was inexplicably benched for New England’s appearance in the Super Bowl three years later — agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $9 million, his agent, Derek Simpson confirmed Wednesday. Butler, 32, sat out the 2021 season for personal reasons and was placed on the reserve/retired list by the Arizona Cardinals. Butler was an unheralded rookie in 2014 before he stepped in front of Russell Wilson’s goal-line pass in the final minute of the Super Bowl, crashing into receiver Ricardo Lockette and coming down with the ball to turn an almost-certain Patriots loss into a 28-24 victory over Seattle. He was a Pro Bowl selection the following year and started four seasons for the Patriots, helping them win another Super Bowl after the 2016 season. But in the Super Bowl following the 2017 season, a game in which New England was desperate for defense,...

    BOSTON (CBS) — If J.C. Jackson’s free-agent market is as robust as he expects it to be, then the cornerback’s days in Foxboro are certainly over. However, the door is not yet officially closed on Jackson signing a new deal with the Patriots. That’s according to NBC Sports Boston’s Phil Perry, who spoke to Jackson after the cornerback did not receive a franchise tag ahead of Tuesday’s deadline. Despite the lack of agreement on a deal last year, Jackson doesn’t seem to be holding any ill will toward New England and thus would sign on the dotted line if the team made a competitive offer. “I wouldn’t rule it out,” Perry said of a Jackson return to New England. “I got a chance to talk to him [on Tuesday afternoon], and I wouldn’t rule out a return to the Patriots.” Despite the door being open, Perry suggested that chatter at the combine last week indicated that Jackson will be getting top-five cornerback money on the open market. If or when that happens, then the Jackson era in New England will officially be...

    Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien is a candidate to replace Josh McDaniels on the New England Patriots staff if he were hired to be the next head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. There is a potential succession plan in place in Foxborough, as Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien could replace New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels if he were to get the Las Vegas Raiders head-coaching gig. While news of the Raiders being very intrigued by McDaniels speaks volumes, New England bringing back O’Brien would be a fantastic move for the Patriots organization. O’Brien worked for Bill Belichick in New England from 2007 to 2011 in several roles, including offensive coordinator, before taking over an incredibly challenging situation with the 2012 Penn State Nittany Lions. Not only does O’Brien have great familiarity with Belichick, but he runs a similar offense at Alabama that could bring out the very best in second-year pro Mac Jones. If the Raiders and Josh McDaniels get a deal done to make him the next Las Vegas HC, a potential OC replacement in New England could...
