Solutions

1:B - “Arsenal come streaming forward now in surely what will be their last attack. A good ball by Dixon, finding Smith, for Thomas, charging through the midfield! Thomas, it’s up for grabs now! Thomas! Right at the end! An unbelievable climax to the league season!” What drama., 2:C - They won 18 of their 21 home games but lost 16 of their 21 away games. Bizarre., 3:D - Lacy weighed in at 253lb to earn his money – and he will earn even more if he can keep his weight down. His contract with the Seahawks contains seven potential weight bonuses worth a total of $385,000. Nice work if you can get it. , 4:C - Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini, Claudio Ranieri and Antonio Conte., 5:A - Saracens beat Clermont 28-17 at Murrayfield to retain the European Rugby Champions Cup., 6:D - Sure, he didn't play many actual football matches, but he was in both squads., 7:D - Sharapova was responding to the news that she has been denied wildcard entry to the French Open. “There can be a wildcard for the return from injuries; there cannot be a wildcard for the return from doping,” said Bernard Giudicelli, the president of the French Tennis Federation. Ouch., 8:C - Totti: 784. Terry: 716. Lahm: 516. Zabaleta: 332., 9:D - “While I was playing Arthur, I thought an enormous amount about Conor McGregor,” said Hunnam. “His attitude is: ‘There is no opponent. I am fighting myself in the octagon. It’s only me and my own fears and the execution of my own ability that is going to win or lose a fight for me.’”, 10:D - Juventus won the Coppa Italia on Wednesday, are likely to wrap up the Serie A title this weekend and will then go for the Champions League early next month. And no, Manchester United winning the Europa League, League Cup and Community Shield would not count.
