"They are with the club on their future

LONDON -- Jose Mourinho accepted Chelseas Premier League faint title hopes had been extinguished by a 0-0 draw against Norwich on Sunday, with the manager bemoaning the teams laziness and misfiring strikers as his first season back in charge ends with a whimper. Earl Thomas III Youth Jersey . Neither striker Demba Ba nor Fernando Torres came close to scoring as Chelsea was left unsuccessfully appealing for penalties in this drab penultimate game of the season. "Our strikers are good strikers, no doubt about that, but players with some specific qualities," Mourinho said. "They are not the kind of players in five square meters with three or four players around who can get the ball, can dribble around and make the shot. "So when the team is in a difficult situation they are not able to normally resolve that situation for us." It likely means Mourinhos first season back at Chelsea will end without a trophy. Chelsea, with one game left, is a point behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who both have two matches remaining and a superior goal difference. "We tried everything but at the end of the day we knew we had no chance of being champions," he added. Chelsea is three points ahead of fourth-placed Arsenal, which also has one game left, but the Blues have a much better goal difference. A draw at Stamford Bridge would usually be something to celebrate for Norwich -- giving Neil Adams his first point in his fourth game as interim manager -- but it leaves the club closer to the drop. Norwich needs Sunderland to lose to West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday and Swansea on Sunday, when the Canaries must beat Arsenal. Realistically, the season seems to be over for both Norwich and Chelsea, which still seemed to be affected by Wednesdays Champions League semifinal loss to Atletico Madrid. "The first half was typical of the consequence of that state of mind," Mourinho said. "It was a lazy first half," he added. "Slow, no pressure, the midfield werent arriving to press the opponent." Chelsea was fortunate that referee Neil Swarbrick dismissed Norwichs penalty claims after 11 minutes when Martin Olsson was fouled in the area by John Terry. Chelsea didnt make the most of its reprieve, with the hosts unable to trouble goalkeeper John Ruddy, who easily saved Terrys header. Andre Schuerrle did manage to hit the inside of the post but his follow-up was easily collected by Ruddy, and Willian completely miscued a shot just before half time. Defender David Luiz made a quick impact at the start of the second half after replacing Frank Lampard, but the crossbar denied Chelsea this time. Then came Chelseas penalty claims, with Schuerrle first brought down by Alexander Tettey and Ryan Bennett making slight contact with second-half substitute Eden Hazard. "Hazard, I saw," Mourinho said. "I saw in the game, but to confirm I had a quick run to my office which is just there, and I arrived in time to watch and then go back to the dug-out laughing ... because I cant cry." With one of his assistants, Rui Faria, starting a six-game stadium ban for misconduct toward match officials, Mourinho imposed a vow of silence toward Sundays referee. "My assistant is in jail and I dont want to comment," Mourinho said. The Portuguese was happier discussing another unsatisfactory performance from his strikers, summed up by Torres failing to make a clean connection late on after Hazards shot was parried. For Mourinho, the summer mission is to overhaul his strike force with Atletico striker Diego Costa primed for a move to west London. "Its a long summer for us ... to sit and to discuss and analyze options, the market," Mourinho said. Veteran players could be leaving, with 33-year-old defender Ashley Cole out of contract at the end of the season and tearful on the pitch after Chelseas final home game. Terry, who embraced the emotional Cole, and Lampard are also yet to secure new contracts. "They are with the club on their future," said Mourinho, who wants the trio to stay. Kam Chancellor Youth Jersey . - Heres a list of Miami Dolphins coaches who never won a game by 37 points or more:Jimmy Johnson. Tyler Lockett Seahawks Jersey .

Watch the game live on  TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO, tonight at 7pm et/4pm pt.DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies are reshaping one of baseballs worst bullpens. Left-handed reliever Boone Logan agreed to a $16.5 million, three-year contract on Friday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal has yet to be announced. Colorado struggled with its relief corps in 2013, posting an NL-worst 4.23 ERA. Part of that may have been due to usage; the bullpen logged 555 2-3 innings, second most in the majors. Colorados first step toward bolstering the bullpen was signing LaTroy Hawkins to a one-year deal last month. Hawkins, who turns 41 on Dec. 21, is expected to compete with hard-throwing lefty Rex Brothers for the closers role. And now the Rockies are adding Logan, a power lefty who has spent the last four seasons with the New York Yankees. He was 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings last season. The 29-year Logan was originallly drafted in the 20th round by the Chicago White Sox in 2002. Tyler Lockett Jersey. The team also exercised a mutual option for 2014 with right-handed reliever Matt Belisle. Belisle struggled last season, going 5-7 with a 4.32 ERA in 73 innings, but has been steady out of the pen in the past. The makeover hasnt been limited to just the bullpen, though. Colorado started to solidify its starting rotation after a season in which the team finished last in the NL West with a 74-88 record. The Rockies recently acquired left-hander Brett Anderson -- and cash -- from the Oakland Athletics for lefty Drew Pomeranz and minor league right-hander Chris Jensen. Anderson was the Athletics starter on opening day last season and went 1-4 with a 6.04 in five starts, before finishing up as a reliever in an injury-plagued season. He will join a rotation that includes Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin and Tyler Chatwood. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
