We played well, we need to be happy about the performance overall, but disappointed because we cannot maintain the result. In nearly all the games we were leading and always something happened where we conceded and we need to improve, if not, it will be tough to win games.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Carlos Goncalves told Record: “Any coach depends on the results. “We signed a three-year contract and football, with the entry of investors, makes us want immediate success, when success is actually built gradually.”The English coaches, who [managed] 10-15 years at the same club, disappeared.”Goncalves also opened up on Silva’s original move to Hull City in 2017.”Marco always had that ambition and hence took the risk, gambled in January and went to the condemned Hull City,” he added.”The club eventually were relegated but the work he did was unanimously well received. So he had four invitations to stay in the Premier League and moved to Watford.”I think all coaches have this ambition, because it is the most competitive championship in the world and where the best are.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgFive to go: Spurs to sell stars – including Dierby Paul Vegas17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveEric Dier is to be transfer-listed by Tottenham in January, it has been revealed.The Times says Dier will be joined by Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose, Serge Aurier and Victor Wanyama on the list with a mid-season shake-up seemingly on the agenda. Tottenham went into the international break in miserable circumstances after conceding 10 goals in two games with the 3-0 defeat by Brighton following the 7-2 demolition by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Dier has struggled for minutes this season following the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele and has featured just three times. England team-mate Harry Winks appears to be the preferred option alongside Ndombele and so Dier has been forced to take a peripheral role so far. With a lack of involvement the report details how Pochettino is willing to sell Dier and some of his misfiring team-mates in a bid to freshen up the ailing squad.

Videos: Texas And Baylor Just Engaged In A Bench-Clearing Scuffle

Texas won 58-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Texas is destroying No. 12 Baylor, 17-0, after the first quarter. The score is ugly, but not as ugly as the bench-clearing incident which just occurred. After Baylor reserve quarterback Lynx Hawthorne tossed an interception, the red-shirt junior chased down Texas DB Duke Thomas, who recorded the pick. Hawthorne slammed Thomas down near the Longhorns’ sideline, and some UT players took offense. In the videos below, you can see Texas safety Kevin Vaccaro (No. 18 in white) leave the bench and fall on top of Hawthorne. This resulted in a 15-yard penalty, but more significantly, served as the beginning of all hell breaking loose.Baylor players sprinted from the far sideline to join the fray. While it didn’t look like any punches were thrown, the two teams did scuffle and trade a lot of angry words. Some players had to be held back. 18 off the bench for Texas & PJ Locke shoving QB down after play standing over him.

Grier threw for 1,204 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions, and completed over 65-percent of his passes, leading UF to a 6-0 start to the season. After being suspended 12 games for performance enhancing drugs, Grier will not be eligible to play until mid-way through next year, but according to a multiple reports, it is unlikely that his next game comes as a Gator.I can confirm Scout report that QB Will Grier is transferring from #Gators. Approached coaching staff about it last week.— Matt Baker (@MBakerTBTimes) December 19, 2015 Here’s more from Scout’s Bob Redman. Team sources have informed FightinGators.com that Florida redshirt freshman quarterback Will Grier approached the coaching staff this week and asked for a transfer. …Last week, Jim McElwain said that Grier would be back with the program January 5, after being asked to stay away from team activities and allow the team to play through the season without the distraction of Grier being around and unavailable.Despite the ability to return and compete for the job again, one which he wouldn’t be allowed to play until October 15, 2016 against Missouri, sources are telling FightinGators.com that Grier will likely transfer to another program.Redman notes that there is a chance that Grier stays, but assuming this decision stays, it is a huge blow to a Florida team that became very inept offensively without Grier. If he transfers to another FBS program, he will sit the entire 2016 season, and return as a junior in 2017.[Scout]last_img read more

‘What pre-season is all about’ – Lampard upbeat despite debut draw

first_imgFrank Lampard was not able to crown his debut on the Chelsea bench with a win – but he believes Wednesday’s rather underwhelming introduction will do his new charges a world of good. Chelsea were held 1-1 by League of Ireland side Bohemians in Dublin, just days after Lampard was officially unveiled as Maurizio Sarri’s successor. The Blues had taken the lead through Michy Batshuayi after just eight minutes.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘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? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare They failed to capitalise on that early advantage, however, and the Gypsies hit back through Eric Molloy to earn a draw from the friendly. While the result suggests the former Chelsea playing legend has some work to do in pre-season, Lampard preferred to look at the positives. “It was a good run-out, we had good support and thanks for people turning out. It was a tough first game for us as we have not been back for long,” he told reporters after the final whistle. “We’ve only been back just a few days so there had been some pressure on the lads and we have been working them very hard. I am pleased with the outcome.”Fitness was our issue but I wanted to stretch them a bit and put them under pressure.”This is what pre-season is all about and the quicker we get there, to the level we want, then the better. We wanted to win the game as you always do but it is not about that.Michy Batshuayi Chelsea 2019“It is about individuals getting fit and pushing themselves to the limit and I thought some of the performances – particularly from the younger lads – was really good.””I have been really happy. We have high standards and we have brought that in. We need intensity in our game and I am pleased with the way their have worked and their attitude.”One man who did not see action in the Irish capital was Christian Pulisic, away following his participation with the United States in the Gold Cup, which ended on Sunday with final defeat to Mexico. “This game was very early but the other players are back other than the injured boys and Pulisic is not with us yet but you will see some of them at the weekend,” Lampard added.Pre-season preparations will continue in Ireland on Saturday when they take on St Patrick’s Athletic. Chelsea will also face the likes of Barcelona, Reading, Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Monchengladbach before taking on Manchester United in the very first game of the Premier League season on August 11.last_img read more

Report: Atletico Madrid 1-0 Getafe

first_imgAlvaro Morata’s first-half goal earned Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win over Getafe as they made a victorious start to the new LaLiga season.Morata converted a cross from new signing Kieran Trippier, who impressed on his debut, 23 minutes into the first half at the Wanda Metropolitano.Getafe’s Jorge Molina and Atletico’s Renan Lodi were both sent off in quick succession as events took a dramatic turn before half-time.

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? Morata spurned the opportunity to claim a second when he saw a penalty saved in the second half after fine work from Joao Felix, who caught the eye before being substituted after an awkward fall in the 66th minute.But Atletico held on to a hard-fought victory regardless.It was a close-season of change at Atletico with the departure of Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona and an influx of new arrivals including €126million Joao Felix and England international Trippier.The former Tottenham defender claimed his first assist, delivering a pinpoint cross from the right which was powerfully headed home by Morata.”Hey mate, I’ve scored Atleti’s first goal in the 2019/20 @LaLigaEN season!”#AtletiGetafe#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/da0BGwcfiZ— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) August 18, 2019It was no more than the home side deserved after a dominant start and they were dealt a further boost when Molina saw his initial yellow card switched to red following a VAR consultation after he caught Thomas Partey’s heel with his studs.Yet, in a dramatic end to the half, Atletico were also reduced to 10 men after Lodi, making his debut, received two yellow cards in quick succession, his second for appearing to catch Damian Suarez’s face in an aerial duel.After the break, a sensational run from Joao Felix ended with him being poleaxed for a penalty in the 56th minute, only for Morata to see his spot kick saved superbly by David Soria.Joao Felix was soon replaced by fellow new signing Marcos Llorente after receiving medical attention and Diego Simeone’s side managed to cling on to the three points despite Angel Rodriguez hitting the crossbar from long-range late on.Poetry in motion. #AtletiGetafe pic.twitter.com/ayjnwxfRNK— LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) August 18, 2019 What does it mean? First one out of the wayIt is early days, but as Barcelona’s defeat to Athletic Bilbao on Friday proved, take nothing for granted on an opening weekend. After rivals Real Madrid’s victorious start, Simeone will be pleased to see his team having made a winning opening to their campaign as well.Trippier impressesIt was a dream start to his LaLiga career for England full-back Trippier, who made a strong case for man of the match. His willingness to get forward down Atletico’s right is precisely why Simeone signed him and his stunning delivery for Morata’s goal will have quickly endeared him to the home crowd.Nightmare debut for LodiWhile it was a fine introduction for Trippier, it proved to be the opposite on the other flank for Lodi, who was signed from Athletico Paranaense in the close season. Two yellow cards in as many minutes and an early bath before half-time was almost the worst possible start the Brazilian could have wished for.KEYOPTA FACTS – Only Griezmann (eight) has scored more LaLiga goals than Morata (seven) for Atletico in 2019.- Twelve different players have been sent off for Getafe under Jose Bordalas in LaLiga, more than any other manager in the competition since 2017-18.- Trippier is the first Englishman to provide an assist in LaLiga since Jermaine Pennant for Real Zaragoza against Sporting Gijon in February 2010.- No goalkeeper has saved more penalties than Getafe’s Soria in LaLiga since the start of last season (three, the same as Jordi Masip and Alberto Garcia).- Since their last promotion to LaLiga, Lodi is the second Atletico player to be sent off on his debut in the competition, the first one since Giourkas Seitaridis against Racing Santander in August 2006.What’s next?A date with Leganes awaits Atletico next Sunday, providing Simeone’s team with a real chance to continue their perfect start to the new season.

College Football’s 5 Most-Overhyped Teams In 2019

(Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)The 2018 college football season has now been over for about a week and half and there’s already been a ton of movement for the 2019 campaign.We’ve had a ton of coaching movement, from Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama getting gutted to Ohio State’s Ryan Day raiding Jim Harbaugh’s staff at Michigan, and a bunch of high-profile quarterback transfers.Of course, there’s already been a lot of preseason talk, too.Everyone’s releasing their “way-too-early” preseason top 25 polls and College Football Playoff predictions are rolling out, too.Which teams are being overhyped heading into the 2019 season?Here are five.1. OklahomaJalen Hurts was great for two seasons at Alabama and his addition to the Oklahoma program is obviously going to make a lot of headlines. It seems unlikely, though, that Hurts will match the numbers put up by Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray in Lincoln Riley’s system.Oklahoma should be pretty dang good once again in 2019, but Texas will be the best team in the Big 12 next season.2. GeorgiaThe Bulldogs are coming off a disappointing Sugar Bowl loss to Texas, yet most preseason top 25 polls have Kirby Smart’s team ranked No. 3 in the country to start the 2019 season. This feels a couple of spots too high.One SEC expert seems to agree.”I think Georgia is beatable heading into next season. I don’t think they are going to be as good as they were this past season let alone two seasons ago when they were in the National Championship” – @bmarcello pic.twitter.com/bPgFPw0aaX— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) January 16, 20193. Texas A&MThe Aggies are getting preseason top 10 love heading into the 2019 season. Texas A&M, which went 9-4 in Jimbo Fisher’s first season, should be improved in Year 2.However, the Aggies’ schedule is just brutal, and we’ll be stunned if Texas A&M finishes the season ranked close to the top 10.Here are some of their games:at Clemsonvs. Auburnvs. Alabamaat Georgiaat LSUIt won’t be surprising if Texas A&M ends up losing four regular season games.4. NebraskaThe Huskers had a great second half to the 2018 season after starting off the Scott Frost era with a ton of losses.Nebraska is now getting some preseason top 25 love, with most outlets ranking the Huskers somewhere in the 20-25 range.This feels a little soon for a Nebraska team that still has a lot of work to do to get where Frost wants them to be.5. MichiganThe Wolverines are, once again, getting preseason Big Ten championship and College Football Playoff hype.Shea Patterson is back, which is nice, but the Wolverines could still lack what it takes on the offensive side of the ball to seriously contend at the top of the college football world.Jim Harbaugh has made a big addition to his staff, hiring Alabama’s Josh Gattis to run the offense, so maybe Michigan will look different in 2019.last_img read more

Texas President Makes Statement About Mascot Bevo

first_imgThe Texas Longhorns mascot standing in his corner during a game.AUSTIN, TX – OCTOBER 10: Bevo, the mascot of the Texas Longhorns, stands in his corner during a game against the Colorado Buffaloes on October 10, 2009 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas. Texas won 38-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Texas Longhorns mascot Bevo XV got a lot of attention prior to this past year’s Sugar Bowl game when he unexpectedly charged at Georgia’s mascot Uga. Though nobody was seriously hurt and no damage was sustained, the incident brought a lot of attention to Texas’ use of the longhorn steer mascot.However, Texas president Gregory L. Fenves is maintaining that the school has no intentions of getting rid of the school’s beloved mascot.In an interview with the Austin American-Statesman, Fenves stated that the school intends to keep Bevo XV while focusing on keeping people safe around him.“We take the safety very seriously, but we’re going to continue to have Bevo as our mascot,” Fenves said last week during a visit to the American-Statesman.Per the Austin American-Statesman, Texas maintains a massive insurance policy on Bevo for any damage or injuries the steer causes.Two photographers were reportedly clipped by Bevo’s horn in the Sugar Bowl incident.Per the report, if Bevo’s horn had gone just a couple on inches in another direction, someone could have sustained a serious injury.“He’s an incredible animal and a great symbol for the university,” Fenves said of Bevo. “Seriously, we’re always looking at the protocols for Bevo at public events. I don’t think they need to be revised. There were some peculiarities of the new situation and a very crowded environment. The Silver Spurs (Alumni Association) will just have to be more cognizant as they handle Bevo.“It’s just the general issue of Bevo in large crowds and trying to keep him away from large crowds and at a safe distance,” Fenves said. “If you’ve seen him at our stadium, in the south end zone, there are very few people around him. You’ve got a fence around him. There’s a large distance between that fence and Bevo. The handlers are there. So it’s just being more cognizant and avoiding being close to crowds.”The incident between Bevo and Uga at the Sugar Bowl also prompted PETA to send a letter requesting that Texas and Georgia cease their use of live-animal mascots.But for now, it looks like Bevo is staying with the Longhorns.[Austin American-Statesman]last_img read more

The former Big 12 program jumped to the Big Ten in 2011.It wasn’t until this past season that the Huskers faced one of its former conference rivals. Of course, it was one that has also departed the Big 12.Colorado beat the Huskers in a close game in 2018. The two sides face off again in Boulder this coming season, and play another home-and-home in 2023-24.In 2021, Nebraska will face its first current Big 12 opponent, with a trip to Oklahoma.
