All this in a season that saw Guardiola's team exit the Champions League at the hands of Monaco before the quarter-finals, another new low for the City boss, particularly in the competition that has become the Holy Grail for City's ambitious owners.
Guardiola's much-anticipated first season in the Premier League has been a disappointment given the expectations that were heaped on his shoulders at the start of the campaign. "We'll try to win as many as possible". "It was a lesson for me this season", he said ahead of City's clash with Hull City on Saturday. "It wasn't the easiest game to get back into but what I would say in terms of advice to younger players is: I could have stood back and moaned and complained that I wasn't playing but ...
Spieth did rebound to birdie No. 16, but he finished the round 3-over and six behind the leaders. "I struck the shot well, I just hit the wrong club".

Swansea defended for 90 minutes but they were very close to beating us, and I think that's the main reason.

There was the 2015 Wisconsin game when Calipari rode the Harrison Twins instead of empowering Devin "I Just Scored 70" Booker. Not because of our scoring.

The former Sevilla striker produced an acrobatic volley in the 67th minute as he met a Downing cross and his fierce shot was superbly saved by Burnley's England worldwide keeper Tom Heaton.

The present now is more important than the future for all. "Goals are very important for the forwards. I can not think about next season when we have the most important and hardest part of this season in front of us now".

Willett was happy with the way he played overall. The top 50 players and ties, plus anyone within 10 of the lead, qualify for the last two rounds, with Canada's Mike Weir the last defending champion to miss the cut in 2004.
