A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The 25-year-old has scored seven times and created two more goals in his last nine Premier League outings – making him one of the form players in England.”Me and my dad put that trust in Sir Alex to say that,” Lingard told Sky Sports News. “It’s obviously worked. He guessed right.”I think it’s my time now. I knew we had to step up and kind of take charge. That’s what I’ve done.Jesse Lingard Manchester United Watford“The goals have come, which has given me confidence. Each game I just want to score now, that’s my main objective.”The first few seasons I was just getting used to the Premier League, I just wanted to play football.”This season I’ve come in with objectives, a different mindset to get goals and assists. When you score a goal it boosts yourself and the team as well.”United have the chance to close the 15-point gap to Manchester City at the top of the standings on Monday, when they tackle Stoke, and even if they cannot do so this season, the aim is to turn that situation around as rapidly as possible, Lingard says.”Man United is a club where we always want to win and be first,” he explained. “If second is the spot we have to take then we’ll take it as long as we’re up there and winning games. But our main priority is to be first all the time.”The mentality of the lads is always to win, and the manager’s mindset is the same. We come into each season wanting to come out on top as number one.”last_img read more

HISTORIC TRANSITION FOR TOUCH FOOTBALL IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA

By on November 7, 2019

first_imgA new era for Touch Football began on Monday 3 July 2007, with the launch of Touch Football Australia’s (TFA) new operations in South Australia, under the name, Touch Football South Australia. After 18 months of toil, the South Australian Touch Association (SATA) and its members, on Saturday morning 30 June 2007, voted unanimously to de-register the association and adopt the Unitary Model proposed by Touch Football Australia. Touch Football Australia Board of Management Chairman, Mr. Peter Rooney was on hand to witness the historic event, along with TFA Executive Legal Counsel, Mel Malam who has guided and implemented the intricate legal process from beginning to end.Touch Football South Australia State Manager, and former Executive Officer of the  (SATA), Mr. Gavin Macdonald and the South Australian staff and Board Members attended to cement the formal process, and the Australian Capital Territory’s State Manager, Matt Mc Kerrow, was also on hand to observe the changeover and the protocol involved.After 18 months of legal checks and cross checks in the involved process of deregistration, and the steps associated with formally adopting the Unitary style of governance, the significance of the occasion was not lost on Gavin Macdonald.“It’s a monumental step for the advancement of sport in a changing industry landscape. We are in line with other sports including football, golf, bowls, and volleyball, which are assessing different mechanisms to promote and deliver their sports in a more cost effective and efficient manner,” Mr. Macdonald said.The decision to adopt the new system will enable South Australia to take advantage of streamlined administration and operational practices in delivering the sport to constituents under the National banner. The changeover will help touch football in South Australia to access marketing and branding opportunities with the National body, and cement itself as the sport of choice in South Australia at community participation level for all age groups in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed versions of the game. The development marks a historic occasion, with South Australia becoming the first state to fall under complete operational and administrative control of TFA.Touch Football, with the support of the Australian Sports Commission, is working with State Associations to streamline operations and deliver a more unified approach to the management of the sport across the nation.Other State Associations are working diligently towards the process South Australia has completed, and in coming months TFA will continue to move positively towards a more unified approach to strategic objectives and operational outcomes to ensure the best possible future for the game in Australia.last_img read more

If it was his last game I think it was very good he played in front of his fans and he was able to get a nice reception, but as I said we don’t know so I’m not able to comment. He was captain a few times in pre-season when Cahill and Azpi weren’t there. He’s not the first and won’t be the last to miss a penalty. It’s something I think I have some knowledge on and the keeper did quite well.”What can I say about Cesc? Five-hundred games, a player who is unique in his position, he has unbelievable vision and awareness of where his team-mates are on the pitch. He’s one of the few who has the ability to play that ball for the runs behind the defensive line, so precise and with the right timing. I think he’s one of a kind. He’s been fantastic for teams before us and the contribution he’s given to this club and this team has been amazing. Cesc is a top player.” last_img read more

He worked well in pre-season and he was playing in the games,” said Emery.“But then the problem he had along with Sead [Kolasinac] stopped him. After that he was sick for one week and then he lost a lot of training to keep his fitness. “But in the last two to three weeks he’s improved with us in training and I think it’s good. I didn’t close the possibility for him to play. Because I want him to be OK and ready with being available for training and giving us a good feeling every day. Then he can play. “My idea is to use every player and he is one. The player can help us. He has very big skills and one quality we will need in the next matches. Really I am happy now how he is improving and training every day. He is one player more in that squad.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Pep: Kompany’s City future depends on injuries

By on October 27, 2019

first_imgManchester City are in discussions over offering captain Vincent Kompany a contract extension, manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed.Kompany joined City from Hamburg in 2008 and has been an integral part of their three subsequent Premier League triumphs.The Belgium international started back-to-back league games for the first time since August as the reigning champions claimed a vital 2-1 win over Liverpool in the title race last week. 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? Kompany was arguably fortunate to avoid greater punishment when he was booked for a heavy challenge on Mohamed Salah during the first half but went on to turn in a commanding display at the heart of the City defence.However, the 32-year-old’s withdrawal during the closing minutes was a reminder of the calf injuries that have dogged his progress over the recent seasons and Guardiola conceded his skipper’s fitness woes must be considered as his current deal approaches a June conclusion.”Yeah, we are considering it, we are talking about that. I would like it,” Guardiola told reporters ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against League One Burton Albion, a game for which he stated Kompany is fit.”He’s our captain, 11 years here. We saw in the last two games the huge quality and personality he has to play. The only problem with Vincent is one – his injury problems. “One against one, absolutely we’re better when Vincent plays. Aymeric Laporte has a better left foot, every central defender has his own quality but there’s no doubt Vincent has something special with his charisma, winning the duels.”It’s incredible, he’s one of the best central defender I’ve ever seen. The problem is whether he’s fit, always it is that.”City thumped Rotherham United 7-0 in the FA Cup third round on Sunday, having made eight changes from the side that beat Liverpool.Jurgen Klopp made nine alterations as his men came up short in the same competition at Wolves on Monday.It means, if City go the distance in both domestic cup competitions, they could end up playing eight more matches than Liverpool in the second half of the season, before considering their respective fortunes in last-16 Champions League ties against Schalke and Bayern Munich.”I don’t have a theory from my experience about that. If everyone is fit and not injured we can cope with it,” Guardiola said.”If we had just one competition to play in, I could play with the same 11 or same 12. Now everyone is involved.”The players don’t know who will play against Burton. Then after four days we have another final at home to Wolves [in the Premier League].”Guardiola added: “I prefer it, definitely. I like to be in the four competitions as far as possible. When Wigan put us out of the FA Cup last season I was sad.”The reality for Jurgen is he knows exactly what happened. I’m not the right person to judge what the others do because I don’t like it when others judge our decisions.”last_img read more

Lindelof welcomes Man Utd’s interest in Maguire

first_imgVictor Lindelof says he is excited by the prospect of competing with Harry Maguire for a place in the Manchester United starting XI as the club’s pursuit of the Leicester City defender continues.United have already had two bids for the centre-back rejected as Leicester are reportedly holding out for £90 million ($112m).Lindelof already has to battle with Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling for a spot in the first team, while the likes of Marcos Rojo and Axel Tuanzebe are also pushing for a place.

But the Sweden international is not worried about another high-profile signing being added to the mix, saying it will only motivate him further.”I like the competition,” Lindelof told ESPN. “I love it, actually. I think it’s great for a club to have that competition. If you have good players in your position you have to work hard every day, especially in training, and that helps a team to go to the next level as well.”For me it’s perfect. I like it. I think everyone at this club wants to be at the highest level. I’m very good friends with them all. In training, we compete and then off the pitch we are friends. That’s how it should be.”Meanwhile, Lindelof has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after a solid season in which he made 40 appearances across all competitions.But he has been quick to dismiss any talk of a transfer this summer, insisting he is happy where he is.”I’m not the kind of person who thinks about that,” he added.”I’m here, I’m very happy here. That’s my focus. Manchester United is my club. I represent this club with great honour.”Lindelof had a difficult start to life in Manchester after joining from Benfica in 2017.The 25-year-old was limited to just 17 Premier League games in his first year as he spent large spells on the bench under Jose Mourinho.But he says he “never” doubted that he made the right call in joining the Premier League side as he was confident of becoming a success at United. “I’m very confident in myself. It’s just the way I am, the way I was raised,” he said. “I know the type of player I am, I know the type of person I am. I’ve always been like that and it was never a problem for me.”last_img read more

(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)The Urban Meyer situation at Ohio State has rocked the college football world, as the Buckeyes’ head coach has been placed on paid administrative leave and many within the sport feel his time in Columbus, Ohio could be coming to an end.Meyer, according to a bombshell report by Brett McMurphy, was reportedly more aware of domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith than he led on at Big Ten Media Days. Meyer has since released a statement, saying he was aware, but properly reported them.Almost everyone in the sport has commented on what’s happening, including prominent ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit, an Ohio State grad.Several prominent head coaches have been asked about Meyer and the Buckeyes, too. Here’s what some of them have said.Alabama head coach Nick Saban“We have tremendous respect for treating people, male or female, the right way. I really don’t know enough about it to make a comment … and I’m sure Ohio State will do a fantastic job of investigating and doing what they need to do to make it right.”Nick Saban on Urban Meyer: “We have tremendous respect for treating people, male or female, the right way.

CFB Coach Getting Crushed For Comment On Players Skipping Bowls

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)College football players skipping bowl games to avoid risking injury ahead of their NFL futures has become a popular trend and it’s not going away.For the most part, the college football world seems to be OK with this. At least, the rational fans understand why the players are doing it.One notable college coach is facing some criticism for what he said about the act, though.Former head coach Randy Shannon, who’s currently serving as UCF’s defensive coordinator, is not a fan of it.From ESPN.com:Speaking a few days before the No. 8 Knights face No. 11 LSU in the Fiesta Bowl, Shannon said he doesn’t fault players for leaving early. However, he said it might be hard to get a certain mindset out of a player’s head.“My opinion, it probably will fester more and more in college. And then now the NFL is going to have to make a decision,” Shannon said. “If you draft a young man that leaves early and now you’re not a playoff team, that young man [is] going to say, ‘I’m not going to play.’ Same situation. Right, wrong or indifferent.”As pointed out by CollegeFootballTalk, Shannon’s comments aren’t just criticizable – they’re factually wrong.“The fact that [Shannon] thinks that [spit] matters to people at this level shows just how out of touch he really is,” a longtime NFL scout told CFT in an email that alerted us to the coordinator’s quotes, adding, “It’s embarrassing.”Everyone just needs to get on board with the idea of players skipping bowl games because at this point, it’s not going away.last_img read more

(Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)One of the top college sports administrators in the country, Penn State vice president Sandy Barbour, has overseen the school re-establish itself as a dominant athletic program. But she recently made an announcement that many Penn State fans might not like.Speaking to State College Magazine, the 59-year-old Barbour revealed that she intends to retire when her current contract with the school runs out. Barbour’s contract currently runs through 2023, and reportedly pays upwards of $1,269,000 per year.Over the past five years, Barbour has overseen some incredible success for Penn State’s athletic programs. The school has won multiple national titles and Big Ten conference titles during her tenure.Among the many accomplishments was the Nittany Lions football team’s return to the top of the Big Ten mountain. In 2016 the school won the Big Ten title for the first time since 2009 in a 38-31 win over Wisconsin.That same year, the Nittany Lions earned Big Ten titles in wrestling, women’s soccer, and track & field. The strong season for Penn State athletics earned Barbour athletic director of the year honors by the NACDA.Barbour also owns the distinction of being the first woman hired as athletic director in Penn State’s history.Prior to joining the Nittany Lions in 2014, Barbour served the previous 10 years as athletic director of the UCLA Bruins.She oversaw the Bruins win national championships in baseball, golf, tennis, volleyball, water polo, gymnastics, and softball from 2004 to 2014.last_img read more

There are no predictions logged over at 247’s crystal ball as of now.He also may not be done accruing offers yet.

first_img Press Trust of India KarachiMarch 11, 2019UPDATED: March 11, 2019 08:36 IST India cricketers wore camouflage caps during the third ODI in Ranchi on Friday (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSPakistan minister Fawad Chaudhry had earlier accused India of politicising the gentleman’s gamePCB chairman Ehsan Mani said that Pakistan’s stance is very clear that cricket must not be used for politicsIndia cricketers had worn camouflage caps during the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi on FridayThe Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sent a strongly worded letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC), calling for action against India for wearing camouflage military caps during the third ODI against Australia.”We have made our point very strongly to the ICC which now has no doubts or confusion about our intention or stance now on this matter,” Mani told reporters at the National Stadium on Sunday night.”We will be sending another letter to the ICC in next 12 hours after more consultations with our lawyers,” he added.Mani said that Pakistan’s stance is very clear that cricket must not be used for politics.”This is the second that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has tried to use cricket for politics. They took permission from ICC for some other purpose and used it to do something else, which is not acceptable,” he said.Last month, BCCI had asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to “sever ties with countries from which terrorism emanates” following the Pulwama attack where 40 CRPF jawans were killed in a suicide attack, the responsibility of which was taken by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.Recalling the move by India against Pakistan in the ICC and World Cup, Mani said that by indulging in such behaviour for a second time they have hurt their credibility and standing in the cricket world.PCB reminds ICC about Tahir, Ali incidentsMani said they have reminded the ICC about the disciplinary action they took against Imran Tahir and Moeen Ali few years back when the players tried to make a political statement on field.advertisement”We want the ICC to take similar sort of action against the Indians.”As a mark of respect to the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulawama terrorist attack, Indian cricketers had sported the Army cap in the third ODI and also donated their match fee for the welfare of the families of the martyrs.However, Pakistan’s foreign and information ministers took exception to the gesture and criticised the Indian team and also urged the PCB to take up the issue with ICC to take punitive action against the Indian players.Also Read | DRS not consistent at all, says Virat Kohli after India fail to defend 358 vs AustraliaAlso Read | Mohali crowd chant Dhoni, Dhoni after Rishabh Pant’s missed chances vs AustraliaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
