play, and miss this chance. at what should have been 1—1, city went in to have them 3—0 up. sterlingkel‘s cfoss to have them 3—0 up. sterlingkel‘s cross picked out nordtveit, who headed then for an own goal. aguero got in on the act soon after the break. west ham were heading for the exit on all fronts. they would have missed thejohn stones header that just crossed the line, which he will remember as his first city goal. this will not have much of a mention in the hammers history books, only a fantastic friday for those in blue. finally we were able to keep the ball more than in the last games, where it was almost impossible, so we played much better in that sense, created more chances. we conceded fewer, and of course that happens a lot, right before the penalty we had
10:31 pm
three orfour lot, right before the penalty we had three or four clear chances, and after the second and third, it was better in the second half. in the middle be given off, we gave everything, but other team it was not enough. it was nowhere near the performance we had here a few days ago against manchester united when we were much more compact with ten men, not with 11, so that is a disappointment. swansea city's ex—first—team coach and club legend alan curtis will get to stay—on at the liberty stadium after the premier league club gave him a new role overseeing loan players. it had been feared the 62 year old would be eased—out with the appointment of paul clement as full time manager. but chairtman hquenkins wants to keep curtis and use his experience with the younger players. british cyclist chris froome says he turned down the chance to use a therapeutic use exemption in 2015 because of moral concerns. the three—time tour de france winner has twice previously used medications under the tue rule but when given the option during a race two years ago,
10:32 pm
he chose not to. they basically said, "your condition is severe enough that you need medication, and medication you need would require a tue." that didn't sit well with me at the time. i didn't feel as if having a tue in the last week of the tour de france was something i was prepared to... it just didn't sit well with me morally. do you think therefore it is right, for example, it is right, for example, we are asking questions of why sir bradley wiggins had three corticosteroids in the lead up to big races? it is only healthy to ask those questions, but, yes, obviously everyone, i am not making negative commentary on his situation,
