first_img​Makelele blasts Man Utd star Pogba for celebrationsby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveClaude Makelele is not happy with Paul Pogba.The legendary French defensive midfielder believes that Pogba’s goal celebrations are disrespectful.Pogba enjoyed some dance moves with other United players, such as Eric Bailly, after scoring twice in the 4-1 win over Bournemouth.But Makelele does not agree with such displays of flamboyance.Speaking on Astro SuperSport’s Sunday Night Live show, he said: “One example is Thierry Henry. When he scored a goal before, everybody was like, ‘F*****g hell, many goals, he’s never happy’.”One day I tell Thierry, ‘Why?’. He said, ‘It’s the way I celebrate my goal. I know people don’t like this, but I’m like this. I can’t change this.”Pogba, he’s like this, he can’t change this. We accept this – it’s Pogba.”For me, it means sometimes you don’t respect your opponent, you know?”It’s frustrating. I’m fronting Pogba. I want to tell him, ‘Listen, do this in the dressing room, not now. It’s frustrating. You win 4-0, you’re dancing in front of me.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Bluebird jet boat floats again 51 years after fatal crash

first_imgLONDON – The famed jet boat Bluebird returned to the water Saturday for the first time since a 1967 crash that killed pilot Donald Campbell during a world speed-record attempt.Watched by well-wishers including Campbell’s daughter Gina Campbell, the sleek blue hydroplane was lowered into Loch Fad on Scotland’s Isle of Bute, where it will undergo low-speed tests.Campbell had already set eight land and water speed records when he attempted to break his own 276.3 mph (445 kph) water-speed record on Jan. 4, 1967 on Coniston Water in northwest England’s Lake District.The jet-powered Bluebird roared past 300 mph (482 kph) before it vaulted into the air, flipped and crashed into the lake, breaking in two and killing the 45-year-old Campbell.It was 34 years before divers managed to raise the Bluebird’s wreckage from the bottom of 150-foot (45-meter) deep lake in March 2001.Human remains were found near the boat and confirmed by DNA testing as belonging to Campbell. In September 2001, his body was taken on a final boat trip around the lake where he died before being buried in a nearby churchyard.A team has been working for 17 years to restore the vessel and hopes to return it to the Lake District next year.The plans to rebuild the Bluebird faced some opposition, but gained support from Gina Campbell, who was 17 when her father died. On Saturday, she held her father’s mascot — a stuffed bear named Mr. Whoppit that was recovered from Coniston Water after the crash.She said she was “overwhelmed” by the occasion.“I hope my dad’s looking down from above and telling everybody what a good job was done,” she told the BBC.last_img read more

Dotting the i Jamarco Jones living nextmanup mentality

OSU junior offensive lineman Jamarco Jones (74) blocks Rutgers redshirt junior Darnell Davis (59) during the Buckeyes game against the Scarlet Knights on Oct. 1. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorLast Saturday against Indiana, the Ohio State Buckeyes did something they almost never do. Just before the half, OSU allowed the Hoosiers to cut the lead to seven with 1:03 left in the half. A seven play, 65-yard drive that took just 2:29 to march into the teeth of the south end zone.OSU was about to head into halftime ahead by just one score against a team many thought should have been blown out. After a 91-yard kickoff return by redshirt sophomore wide receiver Parris Campbell gave the Scarlet and Gray optimal field position, junior offensive tackle Jamarco Jones didn’t squander the opportunity to regain momentum before halftime. Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett took the snap and ran to left where Jones stood up Indiana linebacker, and leading tackler Tegray Scales, paving the way for Barrett’s five-yard touchdown run.Jones was one of only two players on the offense to be graded as a champion of the Indiana game. The other was redshirt senior captain center Pat Elflein.“When opportunity meets preparation, you get graded as champion every week,” Elflein said on Monday. “We rely on him for leadership, even though he’s a first-year starter, and he’s playing very well right now.”OSU coach Urban Meyer named Jones a starter back in the spring after three members of the 2015 offensive line had left, two of which were key members of the 2014 national championship team. The program notably believes in the “next man up” mentality, but it’s one thing to embrace it and another to perform.Jones stepped into the role of left tackle following the departure of Detroit Lions’ first-round pick Taylor Decker, who was a three-year starter with the Buckeyes. Not only did he have big shoes to fill, he also had to protect the weak side of the team’s most valuable asset, Barrett.To date, OSU has allowed just three sacks all season and Jones is one of the first people you can look to for a reason as to why teams struggle to get into the OSU backfield. Junior defensive end Jalyn Holmes said he faces Jones everyday in practice and believes the 6-foot-5, 310-pound left tackle can be in the same conversation as some of the recent great offensive linemen who came through Columbus.“He’s like up there with them. I feel like he’s always been good,” Holmes said. “He’s just very patient with his technique. He’s fundamentally sound and has gotten a lot stronger at the point of attack. He gets me better everyday.”Jones and Holmes came into OSU in the same class and took fairly similar routes to seeing the field. Both played as freshman in 2014 when OSU romped Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, 59-0. On Saturday, the second-ranked Buckeyes travel to Camp Randall Stadium for the first time since 2012 to take on the No. 8 Badgers, where the game will likely be much different that the Big Ten title.Wisconsin poses one of the premier defenses in the country, especially against the run. OSU has two standout ball carriers in junior H-back Curtis Samuel and redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber. The duo ranks among the best in the conference and heavily contributes to the team’s 323.6 rushing yards per game, which ranks third in the NCAA. Wisconsin, who surrenders just 90.4 yards per game on the ground, will be Jones’ and the offensive line’s biggest test of the season.“It’s fun blocking for guys like that. It makes you go hard every play because you don’t want to be that guy that let their man beat them and be the reason why we didn’t score a touchdown on that play,” Jones said. “We got our work cut out for us.”Jones is one of the few Buckeyes who understands the game atmosphere the team will experience on Saturday in Madison, Wisconsin. As a recruit, he visited the school during a big-time matchup. Jones said he remembers how loud the stadium was and how the Badgers’ fed off of the crowd’s intensity.“It should be a very fun environment to go in and play. Those guys are going to be ready,” he said.The No. 8 Badgers pose a gargantuan challenge to the Buckeyes, who look to move to 6-0 and remain undefeated. Elflein said even for Jones’ first Big Ten road game as a starter, he has been well prepared before this season.“Jamarco’s been ready to play. He was ready to play last year,” Elflein said. “His time is now.” read more

Bartomeu calls AlKhelaifi a hypocrite over Neymar

first_imgBarcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, spoke about Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s “hypocrite” complains about other clubs coming after Neymar.There is still no doubt that Neymar’s exit from Barcelona really hurt club’s president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, who recently responded to Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s complains about other clubs approaching the player to sign him. According to the PSG owner, the Brazilian player should be left alone and there is no reason for other clubs to come after him in the transfer market because he is happy with the French giants. But after these statements during an explosive interview with Marca, in which he went after Real Madrid for the disloyal practices of trying to sign Neymar behind his back, Josep Maria Bartomeu had a lot to respond after the way in which the French club took the Brazilian from the Catalan club. According to the Barcelona president, Al-Khelaifi shouldn’t really complain about anything because of how he went behind the Spanish club’s back and snatched the player from under their noses. These practices become even more complicated for Spanish clubs due to their rescission clauses in their contract, which have become a norm in Spanish football and don’t exist at all in other countries or leagues throughout Europe.El palo de Bartomeu a Al-Khelaifi por el fichaje de Neymar: “Cuando alguien se lamenta debe pensar si él ha hecho lo mismo en alguna ocasión” https://t.co/xhMJ50hPY2 pic.twitter.com/peLB8p2KvZ— Mundo Deportivo (@mundodeportivo) September 18, 2018Bartomeu spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport about the statement that Al-Khelaifi did five days ago, in which he made a plea for Real Madrid to stay away from Neymar because he wants the Brazilian to finish his career at PSG: “When somebody complains in such manner, I believe he is the one who must think if he has done the same thing in more than one occasion. I don’t think that PSG didn’t hear what Neymar had to say before paying the clause on his contract. How can you complain about hypocrisy? FIFA needs to stop an think about this, they really need to change the rules. In Spain, we have that disadvantage of the rescission clauses. Clubs always know what the price tag of any player is and they always talk to them on under the table. FIFA needs to intervene in this. Now we have other priorities like VAR for example. We have always been in favor of VAR: the fans will get to see that the results with it are fair and the referees need to get that kind of help. But UEFA decided to not use it in the Champions League and they have disappointed me, I’ve already told them that,” said Bartomeu about the PSG owner and the implementation of VAR in the Champions League.Bartomeu: “Nos dolió mucho cómo se fue Neymar. De hecho, aún nos duele. Sobre todo por las formas y porque el PSG pagó la cláusula sin siquiera decirnos nada” pic.twitter.com/qQEg9VsHzL— ❤???Barcelonadictos???❤ (@Leyendasdelgol) September 19, 2018PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.After this Tuesday’s poor start that PSG had in the Champions League, we can be certain that Nasser Al-Khelaifi is biting his nails right now because he knows that his best player will leave the French giants next summer if they fail to win the tournament again. The club’s owner has literally spent over €1 billion in players already since he came to take control of Paris Saint-Germain, a number that piles up the pressure on everybody because the Champions League hasn’t arrived yet. The first club to start this practice of trying to buy this coveted trophy is Roman Abramovic’s Chelsea, the Premier League club needed a little less than a decade to complete their objective. Other clubs like Manchester City have already spent that decade and still haven’t been able to win the Champions League, Al-Khelaifi still has a little bit of margin given that he arrived in Paris back in 2011 but he has spent more money than any of the other two clubs have in the same amount of time. Only with Neymar and Mbappé, the magnate spent over €400 million and this alone is what has made him so paranoid to lose his two main stars.Bartomeu: “El objetivo deportivo es el triplete” https://t.co/SLwrBEvSQ4 pic.twitter.com/fy5WnMEAUs— Futbolestodo.com (@Futbolestodo) September 19, 2018How long do you think Neymar or Mbappé will last at PSG before going to a club with more history?

Mustafi wants Arsenal on the top four

first_imgThe Gunners footballer believes his team still has time to get to stay on the top four of the 2018-2019 English Premier League season.Arsenal is currently in the fourth position of the English Premier League table with 53 points.The Gunners have won 16 out of 27 matches, drawing five times and losing only six.They are seven points behind third place, 12 points behind second place and 13 points behind leaders Liverpool.And for Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi is very important to stay in this position.“I think statistics are something for people who like them and talk about them,” Mustafi said to the team’s official website.“If you’re not going to make it into the top four, it doesn’t count for anything.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“For us, statistics are something that we leave on the side. We try to focus on what’s on at the moment. We’re not where we want to be, so we have to work and get there.”“I think we’ve done well and have done that in a few games better than others, but I think we’re still in a transition to become a team who are confident of playing the same way both home and away,” he explained.“I think we try our best to get to where we want to be: a team that is confident of playing, keeping possession, who likes to play forward, likes to score goals. It’s something that we try our best to improve.”“It would be great for the team [to finish in the top four] because we have a lot of young players who are very keen to play in the Champions League again. Obviously, a club like Arsenal belongs in the Champions League as well. For everyone it’s going to be a big achievement,” Mustafi concluded.Perseverance. Our way. The @Arsenal way.
