• Rodgers sacked after derby draw, United loss stuns Van Gaal

    By Steve Tongue LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was sacked on Sunday despite preserving his unbeaten record in seven Merseyside derbies against Everton with a 1-1 away draw in the Premier League. More presciently, he told Sky Sports, "When the time comes for me not to be here, I'll accept that and move on because it's an incredible club and a wonderful club to work for." "It is a very good point," Rodgers said after the draw. Alexis Sanchez netted twice to give the Chilean six in the last three games and Arsenal's Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil scored the other to leave the visitors trailing by three goals at the break in a league game for the first time in 10 years.

  • Bayern's Dortmund thrashing warns rivals: Mueller

    Thomas Mueller said Bayern Munich's 5-1 trashing of second-placed Borussia Dortmund sent a signal to their German rivals that they will not release their iron grip on the Bundesliga. It seems foolish to suggest the German league title race is over with October barely begun, but Bayern's seven-point lead already has an ominous look having won the title by 10, 19 and 25 points respectively in each of the last three seasons. Pep Guardiola's side are on course to win an unprecedented fourth consecutive Bundesliga title and Dortmund were powerless to prevent their 15-game unbeaten run being ended in emphatic fashion at Munich's Allianz Arena on Sunday.

  • In an Oregon gun shop, President Obama's message does not sit well

    By Emily Flitter ROSEBURG, Ore. (Reuters) - The first thing customers entering the Roseburg Gun Shop see is a life-sized cardboard cutout of President Barack Obama with a Middle Eastern scarf around his head and a badge pinned to his chest that reads: "Gun salesman of the year." The customers and sales staff in this store, located 10 miles (16 km) from Umpqua Community College, where a gunman killed nine people and injured nine others on Thursday, said they were horrified by the shootings. On Friday, as customers browsed in the store, many of them preparing for the start of deer hunting season on Saturday, talk was focused on Obama's call the previous evening for stricter gun laws. Don Sheldon, 52, a police officer in the town of Winston, which borders Roseburg to the south, said that when he pulls people over and learns they have a concealed carry permit, he thanks them.
