10 months agoEx-Chelsea striker Cascarino backing Arnautovic move

first_imgEx-Chelsea striker Cascarino backing Arnautovic moveby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino says they should move for West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic.Cascarino has even compared the charismatic West Ham star to Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.“You know the one player I’d really want to take? Arnautovic – I’d take him in a heartbeat,” Cascarino said. “I think he’d fit perfectly into Chelsea.“The thing with Arnautovic – he reminds me of that Eric Cantona mindset. He thinks he’s good enough to be up there at the top table, and he is.“He was dreadful at times last year but there’s a real player in there and he needs a challenge and maybe the challenge is West Ham?” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAndrew Robertson: Liverpool will remain humbleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveAndrew Robertson says Liverpool will not make the mistake of underestimating opponents this season.The Reds blew their Premier League lead to Manchester City last season with some poor results against smaller clubs.Asked if Liverpool could underestimate an opponent, he said: “No, we prepare for every game as if it’s our last because that’s the only game that’s in front of us.”Every game is like a cup final and that’s the game in front of us. Last season we were very good at never looking too far ahead at the games that you class as big games. Newcastle away last season, for example, we took care of that after Barcelona away.”We had Barcelona at home three days after but we took care of the games that we had to take care of because the next game is the most important.”That’s the attitude that we’ve taken and we can’t look at a busy September period because Newcastle had to be taken care of today. Luckily we’ve done that and now we focus on Napoli.”We don’t look too far ahead but we just focus on the next game because that’s how we get the best out of ourselves.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

When Zidane won the Champions League things were not going so well in the Liga and in the end there are always criticisms. And more in Madrid. “It is clear that this team has won a lot and has been reinforced. Now he’s having a bad time with injuries, but he’s a coach with three Champions Leagues and great players. He will be in the fight.”On Mourinho, he added: “He is waiting. This is new to him.”Asked if Mourinho could return, Karanka added: “We are in September and there is a world ahead. Zidane has won three European Cups and some credit must be given.” last_img read more

first_imgWatford keeper Foster admits ‘shock, embarrassment’ after Man City thrashingby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford goalkeeper Ben Foster admits Manchester City are the best team he’s faced after conceding eight goals yesterday.Speaking after the match, Foster conceded his side were far from their best, but said at times he could only stand and admire the way City were playing during the thrashing.”It’s probably a bit of shock, embarrassment,” said the goalkeeper when asked to describe his emotions.”I think we let ourselves down today and the fans a bit. The fans were giving it everything, all they’ve got, unfortunately we on the pitch didn’t give it all we have got.”As a keeper coming to City and Liverpool, if you let five in in 20 minutes you fear the worst, you think cricket scores. They are without doubt the best team I have ever played against. We were poor, didn’t lay a glove on them but at times it was breathtaking watching them.”You come away to City and I’m not joking, you come here and think if you keep it to two or three – they are so good. Them and Liverpool are a different level.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Jim Harbaugh Might Leave Scholarship Players Off His 2018 Roster

The Wolverines defeated the Wildcats 38-0. (Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)There are currently a lot of players in Michigan’s football program. There are 154 players, to be exact (including incoming freshman, preferred walk-ons and tryout players.)That number will have to get down to 110 for fall camp. Jim Harbaugh revealed in his latest podcast that some scholarship players could be left out.A college football program is allowed to have 85 players on scholarship, so for some of those guys to not make the 110-player fall camp roster, several walk-ons would have had to pass them in Harbaugh’s eyes.That might be happening.“We posted it for the squad, so they know who was in the 110 as of June 1 and who is not in the 110 as of June 1. We do expect there will be movement, we hope it ignites competition in the summer,” Harbaugh said on his weekly podcast that was released on Tuesday. “Our guys know that 110 number is strictly based on merit. The team’s needs, talent, who is going to help at certain positions. Who the best players are.“There already are scholarship players who aren’t in the 110 and there are walk-ons, preferred walk-ons and tryout guys who are in the 110.”Harbaugh recently revealed that a walk-on running back was ahead of several former big recruits on the depth chart.It appears that Michigan has a bunch of walk-on and try-out guys playing well right now.Michigan opens its 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Notre Dame.last_img read more
