A sensational 89th-minute Josh Reynolds try has ended Manlys NRL season, with Canterbury defeating the Sea Eagles 20-16 at ANZ Stadium. Falcons Jerseys Outlet .Reynolds chased down a Sam Perrett grubber that went between the legs of Manly fullback Tom Trbojevic with just 79 seconds on the clock on Thursday night for the Bulldogs to consolidate their top-four spot in a patchy performance.Reynolds was controversially earlier been denied what would have been the match-winning try by the bunker in the second minute of extra time.Reynolds kicked 25m out from Manlys line and chased through and picked up a Daly Cherry-Evans fumble to crash over.But video referee Bernard Sutton somehow ruled that Reynolds pushed Cherry-Evans in the back before he picked up the ball. The loss ends any chance of Manly making the finals this year under first-season coach Trent Barrett.Manly skipper Jamie Lyon missed an 80th-minute penalty goal, from a Sam Kasiano ruck penalty, that would have kept the visitors slim playoff hopes intact.The Sea Eagles were the better side for much of the contest but missed a number of field-goal attempts in extra time as the Dogs held their composure.However, Canterburys effort will have only given ammunition to those who have written them off as a premiership threat.Cherry-Evans chipped and chased for himself and outleapt Will Hopoate for the games first try in just the fourth minute.Brett Morris scored his first try from a Falcon assist from his brother Josh when the Steeden bounced off his head and Brett pounced in the in-goal.Brett added his second five minutes later, scything his way past three defenders to score his 130th career try.The Dogs led 12-6 at the break before Matt Wright crossed two minutes after halftime on the back of a Lyon linebreak.The Dogs went ahead again in the 56th minute through winger Perrett but his opposite Jorge Taufua answered six minutes later after a Nathan Green tapdown.Taufua was denied 10 minutes later via a double movement and the game moved into the golden-point period after Lyons miss.Manly centre Dylan Walker suffered a dislocated shoulder in the first half and could have played his last game of the year.The win was the Bulldogs seventh in eight games and their eighth in nine golden-point matches.They will hold their spot in the top four regardless of other results in round 23.It was a pretty scrappy affair, Bulldogs coach Des Hasler said of his 200th NRL win with the clipboard.The positive for us was (winning after) the five-day turnaround. It was against a side that was desperate.Their season was on the line - you could see that.We came up with some great defence.They are (ugly) wins, but we have to have them. There was a lot at stake in this game.The fact that we can graft out the win and overcome moments of adversity to hang in there and keep turning up, that has to be a good sign.Manly are on 20 points with three matches to play meaning they cant make the 28-point cut for the final eight.The boys are shattered, coach Barrett said.From my point of view, I couldnt be more proud of the effort and fight. We knew we had to win to make the finals and we gave ourselves every chance.We had the opportunity to win the game there in golden point but it wasnt to be. Discount Falcons Jerseys . R.J.

The PSG ace - who is out of contract this summer - scored at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night to help his side knock Chelsea out of the Champions League and after the match was coy on his future plans.It seems retirement isnt on the agenda for the 34-year-old. Earlier this week Ibrahimovic said he was only warming up and few Premier League clubs would turn down the opportunity to sign him. However, judging by his quotes below, Ibrahimovic would favour some destinations over others…ARSENAL Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored against Arsenal for AC Milan and Barcelona Arsene Wenger has not been slow to praise Ibrahimovic in recent years, describing him as a great player and someone who turns up with performances in the big games ahead of Arsenals Champions League clash with AC Milan in 2012.However, the Arsenal boss wasnt quick enough to recognise the Swedes talent when Ibrahimovic was just 16. Then with Malmo, Ibrahimovic visited Arsenals training ground with a view to joining the Gunners. No way, Zlatan doesnt do auditions. Zlatan Ibrahimovic on being offered a trial with Arsenal Wenger, who had not seen Ibrahimovic play, offered the young forward a trial. Ibrahimovic wasnt impressed: I dont do trials, he said.However, its not just history potentially standing in the way of an Ibrahimovic-to-Arsenal deal. Given the wages and his age, it doesnt feel like an Arsenal deal, Martin Keown told the Daily Mail last month.CHELSEA Ibrahimovic scored the winner against Chelsea on Tuesday Given his recent run-ins with Chelsea players, Stamford Bridge wouldnt necessarily seem like a natural next stop for Ibrahimovic. The striker was sent off in last seasons Champions League tie in west London for a challenge on Oscar and Sky Sports Jamie Carragher described the reaction of the Chelsea players as disgraceful, as they demanded action from referee Bjorn Kuipers.Earlier this week, Ibrahimovic revealed he was also less than impressed with the Blues behaviour that day. Asked whether he expected Chelsea to act like men this time, he said: The last game we played there were no indications of that. Id never seen anything like that before … from mature players like that, I didnt expect it. When I got the red card all the Chelsea players come around. It felt like I had a lot of babies around me. Zlatan Ibrahimovic However, there are likely to be a number of changes at Chelsea this summer, with Antonio Conte expected to join the club and bring in his own staff and players.The Juventus legend retired from playing the summer Ibrahimovic joined the Serie A side in 2004 but could the pair finally be united in the Premier League?MANCHESTER UNITED Louis van Gaal was technical director when Ibrahimovic was at Ajax French media have named Manchester United as a likely destination foor Ibrahimovic this summer - but that may well depend on who is in charge at Old Trafford when the transfer window opens. Cheap Falcons Jerseys. Current boss Louis van Gaal drew plenty of criticism from Ibrahimovic in his autobiography I am Zlatan. The Dutchman was technical director at Ajax when Ibrahimovic was playing up front for the club in the early 2000s - and it seems the pair didnt get on.Van Gaal was a pompous a**, Ibrahimovic wrote in his book. He wanted to be a dictator, without a hint of a gleam in his eye. As a player, hed never stood out, but he was revered in the Netherlands because, as a manager, hed won the Champions League with Ajax and received some medal from the government. [Van Gaal] wanted to be a dictator... as a player, he never stood out. Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Louis van Gaal Ibrahimovic went on to recount a story where he made clear hed rather take legend Marco van Bastens advice on defending ahead of Van Gaals - which didnt go down well with the now Manchester United boss.However, should Jose Mourinho take the reins at Old Trafford - as British newspaper reports have suggested - United may appear a more enticing proposition for the Swede. Ibrahimovic is a big fan of Mourinho, following their time working together at Inter Milan. Zlatan Ibrahimovic said Jose Mourinho become a guy I was basically willing to die for Mourinho is very intelligent. He doesnt treat everybody the same. He knows how to treat people as individuals to get 100% out of them, Ibrahimovic said. That guy says whatever he wants. I like him. Hes the leader of his army. But he cares, too. He would text me all the time at Inter, wondering how I was doing. Mourinho would become a guy I was basically willing to die for.MAN CITY Ibrahimovic had a big bust-up with Pep Guardiola at Barcelona As well as Arsenal, the other Premier League club which came closest to signing Ibrahimovic in the past was Manchester City. The striker revealed that when he left Barcelona in 2011, City made their interest in him clear. However, with the club still yet to win their first Premier League title, Ibrahimovic preferred a switch to Milan.Now two-time English champions, and boasting one of the strongest squads in Europe, Manchester City would surely appeal to the Swede - but for their incoming manager. As a coach [Guardiola] was fantastic. As a person, I have no comments about that. That is something else. He is not a man. Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Pep Guardiola Ibrahimovic is famously not a fan of Pep Guardiola and his methods. In his autobiography, the striker likened his two-year spell at the Nou Camp to being back at school and described Guardiola as a spineless coward after the Spaniard failed to respond to Ibrahimovics outburst after Barcelonas Champions League semi-final defeat to Mourinhos Inter.Whatever happened, as a coach he was fantastic, Ibrahimovic told CNN in November. As a person, I have no comments about that. That is something else. He is not a man. Theres nothing more to say.
