d, `Look, weve got to keep finding ways to get this guy the ball, coach Bill OBrien said.CENTURY MARK: Indianapolis

MANCHESTER, England -- One coach will be wearing a baseball cap, tracksuit and sneakers. Cheap Broncos Jerseys . The other is usually sharply dressed in a suit, tie and shoes.One team will be defensively robust, direct and likely relying on goals from set pieces. The opponent is highly technical, obsessed with possession and easy on the eye.Tony Pulis vs. Pep Guardiola. West Bromwich Albion vs. Manchester City.Get ready for the Premier Leagues ultimate culture clash.Upon arriving at City this offseason, Guardiola said one of his big challenges was to prove to himself and the world that his new team can play beautiful soccer no matter what time of year, no matter who the opposition.Saturday, then, might be his most interesting test so far.The 58-year-old Pulis is part of the furniture in the Premier League, a coach who has taken charge of more than 1,000 first-team games in England and has proved to be the closest thing to a guarantee against relegation after spells at Stoke, Crystal Palace and now West Brom.Using a pragmatic strategy, he knows how to get performances from limited players and results for teams. At West Brom, he has often played a defense containing four center backs and his side has the biggest aerial threat in the league, with four of its 10 league goals this season coming from set pieces. Tall central defender Gareth McAuley has already scored three.Unbeaten Tottenham needed a last-minute goal to draw 1-1 at The Hawthorns two weeks ago, while West Brom was completely dominated in a 2-1 loss at Liverpool last weekend, only to score late -- from a corner -- and set up a tense finish.West Brom use Pulis style marvelously, Guardiola said Friday. I saw them against Tottenham -- they use the long ball and they defend (deep). We have to adapt.Thats just what Guardiola is doing as he gets to grips with the relentless demands of the English soccer calendar, which is different to what he experienced at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.The Spanish coach started with 10 straight victories at City but a League Cup loss to Manchester United on Wednesday took the teams winless run to six games, the worst streak of Guardiolas managerial career.A match at West Brom might be a culture shock to Guardiola and a strong examination of a City defense that has kept only one clean sheet in the league. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, in particular, appears vulnerable under the high ball, so West Brom surely will put pressure on the Chilean.They are struggling at the moment, from what everybody tells me, Pulis said sarcastically, referencing that City is still first in the Premier League after nine games. They are top of the league, they only just got beat by Man United by playing their second team on Wednesday.They will play their first team against us definitely. It will be a tough game.But dont expect Guardiola to adapt his usual game plan just because its West Brom.Asked last week if the downturn in results has caused him to think about a change in style, Guardiola responded: I think about that, yes. But after that, the solution is not better than what I believe. So I cannot.That is why Manchester City called me (to be its coach), to try to play in the way I believe with the players that I have. Todd Davis Jersey . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. Shannon Sharpe Jersey . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. . Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. HOUSTON -- After three lackluster quarters by the Houston Texans on Sunday night, a good chunk of the home crowd headed out early.Tough luck for them.Nick Novak made a 33-yard field goal in overtime to give Houston a 26-23 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Houston became the first NFL team to rally from a 14-point deficit in the final 3 minutes since the Tim Tebow-led Broncos did it in 2011 against the Dolphins.Brock Osweiler threw a 36-yard pass to Jaelen Strong to get Houston to the 12 and Novaks field goal came two plays later.I think a lot of fans tonight missed a terrific performance in the third, fourth quarter by a team, Osweiler said. Nothing was perfect early on, I understand why fans were frustrated but I hope they learned tonight that this team is never going to quit fighting.Indianapolis (2-4) got the ball first in overtime, but Benardrick McKinney sacked Andrew Luck on third down to force a punt.Osweiler shook off a tough start to throw two touchdown passes in less than 2 minutes in the fourth quarter as Houston (4-2) tied it at 23 with 54 seconds left. He found Lamar Miller on a 10-yard catch-and-run TD with 2:47 remaining and, after a stop by the defense, connected with C.J. Fiedorowicz on a 26-yarder that tied it.When you have them down and have a 14-point lead late in the fourth quarter, youve got to be able to close games out, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. We did not do that today.Houstons defense forced a punt by Indianapolis to send it to OT.Everybody stood together and everybody did their job and made plays and (was) trying to get the ball back to the offense, Jadeveon Clowney said.Luck had a 22-yard touchdown throw in the first quarter and pushed the lead to 20-9 when he dashed into the end zone untouched on a 14-yard run early in the fourth.Miller scored his first touchdown as a Teexan on a 1-yard run on Houstons first drive of the second half, but the extra point failed to leave the Texans down 13-9. Emmanuel Sanders Jersey. The Texans stopped the Colts on fourth down after that, but Osweilers pass was intercepted two plays later. Lucks TD run came on the next drive.The Colts led 13-0 in the second quarter after two field goals by Adam Vinatieri and a touchdown catch by Jack Doyle. Osweiler and Houstons offense struggled to get going early and Osweiler had negative-9 yards passing in the first quarter. The Texans cut it to 13-3 before halftime on Novaks 27-yard field goal.MILLERS TIME: Miller finished with a season-high 149 yards rushing and added 29 yards receiving.We felt like he was the guy throughout the game that was probably playing the best on offense so at halftime we said, `Look, weve got to keep finding ways to get this guy the ball, coach Bill OBrien said.CENTURY MARK: Indianapolis Frank Gore had 22 carries for 106 yards to end the NFLs longest active streak of consecutive games by a team without a 100-yard rusher at 55. The last Colt to have 100 yards rushing was Vick Ballard in 2012.RECORD CHASE: Vinatieri made three field goals on Sunday night to extend his streak to 41 in a row and leave him one away from tying the NFL record set by Mike Vanderjagt from 2002-04. Vinatieri made field goals of 41, 37 and 36 yards on Sunday night.I wish one of those points would have been the difference in the outcome of the game, he said.FULLER OUT: Houston rookie receiver Will Fuller was active but did not play on Sunday night because of a hamstring injury. He leads all rookies with 327 yards receiving.UP NEXTColts: Visit Titans next Sunday.Texans: Visit Denver on Oct. 24. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
