first_imgPochettino insists Tottenham didn’t deserve defeat at Leicesterby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists they didn’t deserve defeat at Leicester City.Leading 1-0 at half-time via Harry Kane, Spurs were on the wrong side of a VAR decision that would have seen them 2-0 up with 25 minutes left.Instead, Serge Aurier’s goal was ruled out for a fractional offside decision against Heung-Min Son and Leicester, who had a goal chalked off by VAR in the first half, took advantage, initially levelling through Ricardo Pereira on 69 minutes before James Maddison rifled home the winner with five minutes left.“It’s tough because I think we were the better side,” said Pochettino at the KP Stadium. “We had a bit of bad luck, the decision went against us today to make it 2-0 but in the end it was 1-1 and then 2-1 to Leicester.“We cannot complain, we have to accept the rules, sometimes they are going to be of benefit to us and sometimes they are going to go against us.“We were close to winning (if it had gone to 2-0) but that changed it completely and after that, you can concede a goal and when you concede and you are not solid, this can happen.“We conceded two goals and then it’s difficult to win games like this. 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

It was in the end. There was a lot of confusion and a lot of things were up in the air. The decision was made and that was the situation, so I had to look at other options. “Arsenal are going through a transitional period at the moment. They have many great players and a lot of talent coming through. They are definitely going in the right direction – but my situation now is at Juventus. I have an unbelievable opportunity at a massive club. “I just want to be part of this now.

first_imgAgent of Marco Silva confident he can be successful at Evertonby Paul Vegas17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveThe agent of Everton boss Marco Silva remains confident he can be successful at Goodison Park.Everton currently occupy a position in the relegation zone following defeat to Burnley on Saturday and Newcastle United’s victory over Manchester United the following day. 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

17 days agoFive to go: Spurs to sell stars – including Dier

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.

Then we scored the second goal – by the way, the first goal was very brilliant and the second goal even nicer, and all our goals were unbelievably beautiful.”It was absolutely a great moment for him, but I would say with Ox his performance was exactly the same as the performance of the team – the goals were great but all the rest could have been better.” last_img read more

Video Showing Woman Stealing Vegetable Steamer From Kid Is Insane But Likely Fake

first_imgA woman steals from a kid on Black Friday.viral video black friday woman steals from kidThe video you’ll see below, which was “reportedly” shot during Black Friday, seems too crazy to be real. But it’s going viral, and since you’re going to wind up seeing it anyway, we figured we’d show it to you. We realize that it has nothing to do with college sports.The clip, which supposedly was shot in Saginaw, Michigan, shows a number of shoppers violently battling for vegetable steamers. An adult woman steals one from a kid and gets pummeled by the child’s mother.Given the fact that we’re talking about vegetable steamers, this sounds like the work of Jimmy Kimmel, but it’s hard to be sure.

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.

Reports: Florida Quarterback Will Grier Likely To Transfer

The Gators defeated the Tigers 11-9.Mandatory Credit: Scott Halleran /AllsportIn six games for the Florida Gators this season, quarterback Will Grier was extremely impressive. 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
