first_imgWolves confident deal for Chelsea striker Abraham will get all-clearby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWolves are confident their deal for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is on.The Mirror says Wolves have made the England striker a prime January target and are keen on taking the 21-year-old from Stamford Bridge in a potential £18million deal.Abraham has starred for Aston Villa on loan in the Championship this season, scoring 16 goals in 20 games.Wolves officials have been working to ascertain whether Abraham would be eligible to play for the club this season, having already featured for both Villa and Chelsea. He also featured in a Premier League 2 match against Derby County, leading to questions over his eligibility.But Wolves can cite precedent, such as Liam Walsh, who played for Birmingham City, Bristol City and Everton’s U-23 side last season, but whose switch to the Robins was allowed by the FA – without help from FIFA.

Casemiro’s cannon and cool Canales – the Best of La Liga

Young players should avoid the PL, says ex-Arsenal coach

first_imgFormer Arsenal academy director Andries Jonker has said he would advise younger players to avoid the Gunners and the Premier League’s other sides.Several of England’s best young talents have struggled to break into senior sides in recent season and instead, moved to the continent for more first-team opportunities.Most notable in the group is Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, who failed to force his way into Pep Guardiola’s plans at Manchester City, but is now a regular at the Bundesliga club. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Another example is Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who grew so frustrated at his lack of opportunities at Old Trafford that he left in 2012, only to be bought back four years later for a then world-record fee.Jonker spent two and half years at the Emirates before joining Wolfsburg in 2017 and experienced similar problems when trying to promote his youth players at Arsenal.“When I was at Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger sometimes called up a few youth players for a couple of games in the League Cup,” Jonker told the Mirror.“But when Arsenal had a league game a couple of days later, those boys were never in the squad. And in the next 50 games, Wenger would not pick them, either.”So I have serious doubts if young talent are making the right step if they go to England at this moment. I would advise them not to go, but to play 100 games in first-team football on the continent first.”Players such as Reiss Nelson and Donyell Malen have been forced to leave Arsenal in recent seasons in search of more first-team opportunities.The former is impressing on a season-long at Hoffenheim, while Malen moved to PSV in 2017.“Take Donyell Malen,” added Jonker.  “At Arsenal, he was a big talent, but he left the club just in time. He realised he was going to end up in what I call no-man’s land.“Young players in England, who have huge talent, will only go and play in an Under-18 team, and when they are improving, they then only go the Under-23 team. So, Jadon Sancho went from Man City to Borussia Dortmund – and he is a sensation there. Reiss Nelson, of Arsenal, is choosing the same route. He is getting plenty of chances and minutes at Hoffenheim.”last_img read more

Man City, Juve & Man Utd all wanted me – Godin

first_imgDiego Godin is taking on a new adventure at Inter but admits to having received offers from Manchester City, Juventus and Manchester United in the recent past.The Uruguay international has established a reputation as one of the most reliable defenders in world football.He is now 33 years of age, but remains at the top of his game and has continued to attract interest from leading sides across Europe.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? City and United were heavily linked with moves to lure Godin away from Atletico Madrid during his time in Spain, while Juventus were eager to bolster their Serie A title-winning squad.A South American star was, however, to remain loyal to Atletico before seeing his contract in the Spanish capital expire this summer.Godin told Gazzetta dello Sport on the advances he has received: “A year ago there was Juve, Manchester United, in the past also [Man] City.“However, back then I had a contract with Atletico and I didn’t think of leaving.“This time it was different, as my contract was about to expire. I can say that no club convinced me as much as Inter.”He added on his decision to head for San Siro: “They came alive first and acted more decisively than other clubs.“They showed me the project: it’s ambitious, like me. And I liked the idea of being part of it and being able to help Inter realise it.”Diego Godin Atletico Madrid La Liga 2018Godin is now readying himself for a first taste of life in Serie A, a division he believes is made for him.He said on his perception of Italian football: “That it is more difficult to play for a striker than for a defender. In theory, better for me.“But I have to quickly understand what the manager wants from me, I want to help my team-mates on and off the field.”Antonio Conte will be calling the shots at Inter in 2019-20, with Godin trading life under Diego Simeone for that working with another passionate coach in Milan.“Conte? He reminds me a lot of Simeone,” said Godin.“They live football with the same passion, they pay attention to details, they get the most out of the guys they train.“Conte, in particular, is a concrete type: he knows what he wants, he goes straight to the point and for a player this is ideal.”  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Michigan AD Comments On Jim Harbaugh-NFL Rumors

first_imgjim harbaugh on the sideline at the ohio state gameCOLUMBUS, OH – NOVEMBER 24: Head Coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines looks up at the scoreboard in the third quarter after the Ohio State Buckeyes scored at Ohio Stadium on November 24, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio State defeated Michigan 62-39. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)Michigan’s athletic director has commented on the rumors linking Wolverines’ head coach Jim Harbaugh to the NFL.Earlier this week, FOX Sports 1’s Cris Carter said Harbaugh is “potentially” trying to get out of Ann Arbor, Mich., saying he could be a candidate for the Green Bay Packers job.“Watch out for Jim Harbaugh because Jim Harbaugh, potentially, is trying to get his way out of Michigan, all right? I’ve got good sources that are telling me not only Green Bay but also watch out for the Cleveland Browns,” Carter said. “He likes the quarterback situations there, and, I believe, that there is front office people in Green Bay who are enamored with Jim Harbaugh and potentially trying to get him to come to Green Bay.”Of course, there are Harbaugh-to-the-NFL rumors every offseason, and every year, they’ve been proven to be false.Will they be proven false this time around?Michigan’s athletic director said this morning that Harbaugh hasn’t said anything to him about leaving for the NFL.“Consider the source of the comment … I haven’t missed any sleep. Jim hasn’t said anything to me about it. He’s out recruiting. … From my perspective, it has no validity at all,” Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said.Warde Manuel on WTKA this morning RE: Cris Carter claiming Harbaugh is trying to leave Michigan: ‘Consider the source of the comment … I haven’t missed any sleep. Jim hasn’t said anything to me about it. He’s out recruiting. … From my perspective, it has no validity at all.’— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) December 6, 2018For what it’s worth, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum also said he believes Harbaugh could leave for the NFL.“On the NFL side, there are plenty of whispers out there because of the multitude of jobs that Harbaugh would be on many people’s lists (to consider),” Finebaum said on Wednesday. “I think he would be a very good NFL coach. He’s already proven that in San Francisco. I don’t think he has anything to gain and a lot to lose at Michigan. Next year, The Game is in Ann Arbor. If he loses to Ryan Day — I’m not laughing at Ryan Day. Ryan Day hasn’t accomplished anything other than win three games. The biggest win of his career is over TCU — a lousy TCU team at that.“That’s a high-wire, high-risk opportunity for Jim Harbaugh to look even worse than he does already. So I don’t know what’s inside Jim Harbaugh’s mind. I don’t think anyone does. I’d love to do a reality series about it. But I think he would very anxiously get out of there.”For now, though, Harbaugh remains at Michigan.last_img read more

Nebraska Students Narrowly Vote In Favor Of Balloon Tradition

first_imgNebraska football's game day balloon release.LINCOLN, NE – AUGUST 31: Nebraska fans release red balloons after the Nebraska Cornhuskers score their first points of the game against the Wyoming Cowboys at Memorial Stadium on August 31, 2013 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Eric Francis/Getty Images)The unofficial tally for the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska election is in. It is good news for those who are fans of the Huskers football team’s balloon release tradition.For home games at Memorial Stadium, the program releases balloons after Nebraska’s first touchdown of each game. The tradition has come under some fire for environmental reasons.The tradition has been the subject of both petitions to the school, as well as a recent lawsuit. None have been successful.This week, Nebraska students voted on the future of the balloon release. While the results are non-binding, the student body’s recommendations are going to be delivered to the school.The Nebraska balloon release was one of two environment-focused topics voted on by students.The majority of the students who participated in the vote, 16.4-percent of the Nebraska-Lincoln student population, voted in favor of banning plastic bags from campus, according to The Daily Nebraskan.However, the results of the balloon release question went the other way, but very narrowly.51.9-percent of Husker students voted to keep the balloon tradition at home games. The results still show a very narrow margin between sides of this debate at Nebraska, which continues to grow as environmental concerns across the country and the entire planet grow.The election saw a jump in turnout, with 16.4 percent of the student body turning out to constitute a nearly 5 percentage point increase from 2018’s 11.4 percent turnout.This year’s election also posed two environment-related questions; the first about banning plastic bags on campus and the second to gauge interest about ending the balloon release at Husker football games.A majority of voters voted yes to banning plastic bags on campus. Voters voted no to ending the balloon release, with a close decision of 51.9 percent indicating they wanted to keep the tradition.For now, expect to see balloon releases in Lincoln once again next year. The Huskers open the home season against South Alabama on August 31.[The Daily Nebraskan]last_img read more

I’ve said from the beginning that I’m not trying to collect offers…..I’m focused on finding the one that is perfect for me.“I would like to thank every teacher, coach, trainer, teammate and friend who has had a hand in my development both on and off the field. The person that I have become is a direct reflection of your effort and care. I would like to thank my family for investing their all into me! I pray that I can continue to make you all proud! Most importantly, I want to thank God for blessing me with both the gifts that I have discovered and the gifts that are yet to come!“After much prayer and reflection I would like to announce that I am committing to The University of Notre Dame! #GoIrish“With the commitment, Notre Dame jumps up to No. 2 in the class, behind only Miami which already has nine pledges in the cycle.Rubio doesn’t yet have a 247Sports composite score just yet, but the site’s own rankings have him a a four-star. He’s the No. 195 overall player in the class, and is ranked No. 15 among defensive tackles, and No. 4 in Missouri.last_img read more

World Cup 2019 Final: England’s batting might up against New Zealand’s fearsome bowling as history beckons

first_imgWorld Cup 2019 Final: England’s batting might up against New Zealand’s fearsome bowling as history beckonsAs hosts England take on New Zealand at Lord’s in the World Cup finale, the World awaits a new champion to lift the most coveted title of Cricket.advertisement Ajay Tiwari New DelhiJuly 14, 2019UPDATED: July 14, 2019 08:16 IST Photo: ReutersHIGHLIGHTSEngland and New Zealand are eyeing their maiden World Cup title at Lord’sNew Zealand will be playing their second successive final in the World CupsEngland are playing their first final since the 1992 World CupHosts England will face a stiff challenge from New Zealand when the sides will meet in the World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s on Sunday. With a full house expected for the sport’s biggest event, there is no doubt that history is set to be rewritten at the end of the hugely anticipated match.Every cricket fan must be aware that a new World Champion will emerge on Sunday (or Monday if the game goes into a reserve day) as neither team has won the World Cup before. Curiously, the winner will also be only the 2nd side to have won the World Cup after losing more than 2 matches in the tournament.Pakistan, in their title run during the 1992 World Cup, are the only other team to have won the tournament after going down thrice in the earlier stages. Pakistan had been humbled by West Indies, India and South Africa before lifting their maiden and till date only World Cup trophy. In the ongoing tournament, England (lost to Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia) and New Zealand (lost to Pakistan, Australia and England), both have three losses under their belt.1992-similarities aside, the title-bout is also being billed as a clash of the tournament’s most aggressive batting vs its best bowling side. England batsmen have scored at 6.43 runs per over – the highest among all teams in the World Cup while New Zealand’s bowlers’ average of 27.12 and economy rate of 5.01 is also the best in the tournament so far.But there are still areas, at least on paper, where England could zoom past their opponents on Sunday. Chief amongst these being the opening stand of the two teams.advertisementWhile Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have been a prolific opening partnership at the top of the order for England, the less said about New Zealand’s starts in the World Cup 2019, the better. In the last 4 innings, Roy and Bairstow have come up with partnerships of 128, 160, 123 and 124. On the other hand, the corresponding figures for New Zealand in their last 7 matches read: 1, 2, 29, 5, 0, 12, 0. No wonder that Kane Williamson and Co. would be praying for the ‘Law of Averages’ to play a role in this matter come Lord’s.How important will be the Toss?In the 4 matches played at Lord’s during the World Cup 2019, teams batting first have won all 4 of them. Actually, across venues, this has been the general trend in the latter half of the tournament with pitches getting dryer and slower with time. While England couldn’t handle the scoreboard pressure in each of their 3 losses, New Zealand managed to pull off tense chases against South Africa and Bangladesh before buckling under pressure vs Australia and England.Eoin Morgan and Co. will do well to remember the teams’ last meeting on July 3 when they scored a huge win by 119 runs after blasting their way to a 300+ score. But as New Zealand showed against India in the semi-final, they have the resources to stun even the best on their day.ALSO READ | Come on England: 101 former cricketers wish their team good luck ahead of World Cup 2019 finalALSO READ | No paparazzi, no chaos: When England captain Eoin Morgan took a train to Birmingham ahead of World Cup semisFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Hog Roast For A Cause in New Orleans

first_img Editors’ Recommendations 16 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now 3 of the Best Teeth Whitening Products For Pearly Whites How to Smoke Meat: Everything You Need to Know If you’re anything like us, you probably don’t need much past the words “pig” and “roast” to get your attention. When you add the words “New Orleans,” “Competition,”  “Beer” and then garnish it with some live music and a worthy philanthropic cause, then our attention actually starts to smoke with the ferocity of a, well…traditional Southern hog roast. Such is how we’re feeling about the 5th annual New Orleans Hogs for the Cause Hog Roast that’s happening March 22nd and 23rd at City Park in New Orleans.It’s one of the most buzzed about and fastest growing events of its kind in the South. Delish.com even called it one of the best BBQ events in the country. “We went to school at University of South Carolina and would look forward more to our pre game pig roasts before football games than the actual event,” founders Becker Hall and Rene Louapre told us as they took a break from prepping for the event. “This whole thing started out with us wanting to recreate that experience,” which is how things were meant to go when their friends were invited to the first Hogs for the Cause back in 2009—actually more like a kegger replete with roasting pigs “down by the river” in New Orleans. But just before the event, Hall and Louapre had met Ben Sarrat Jr, a 4 year old who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and immediately turned the roast into Hogs for the Cause, a fundraiser to help Ben’s family manage the day to day bills that insurance costs had made nearly impossible to keep up with.Hogs for the Cause did so well that when they decided to go for seconds the next year, 2,500 people turned up and $30,000 was raised. Unfortunately, Bed Sarrat passed away before the second event, but the idea to help families struggling to pay for their children’s pediatric cancer lived on. “We work with local hospitals who vet families who need support past what insurance is able to do and donate the money directly. You get to know the families pretty intimately; they’re very receptive to relationships. We go to the hospital and meet with the family, sit around and chat. It’s something we stay involved in all year long,” they say about how they decide to allot the bounty. Last year over 12,000 people showed up and $300,000 was raised. This year it’s gotten so big that it has turned into a two night event, legends like the Rebirth Brass Band are playing, and they’ve had to move it to New Orleans City Park.“The competition isn’t officially sanctioned so the teams can cook the pigs anyway they want as long as smoke is involved,” explained the founders.  Also, it’s one of the few competitions where attendees can actually help themselves to the cooking. “They pay the entry fee [$15 online/$20 at the gate] and they give donations to the teams that they want to try,” say Hall and Louapre.. “There’s also the Boss Hog ticket [$250 online/$300 at the gate, both with $150 tax deductible receipt] that gives you unlimited food and open bar.”This year the event starts on a Friday night with the first ever “Hogtail” competition—think hog roast but with alcohol. “Teams all submit cocktail recipes. We pick the six  best and whichever sells the most wins.”If you’re interested in heading to Hogs for the Cause 2013, here are some hotel specials:Book a General Room at the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel for $159/night + taxes.
