Maguire: Leicester didn’t deserve Crystal Palace defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City defender Harry Maguire insists they didn’t deserve defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday.Maguire felt City should have created more chances with the possession they had in the second half but lamented Jamie Vardy’s bad luck after goalkeeper Vicente Guaita pushed his effort onto the post and it rebounded straight back into his arms.“Everyone is disappointed,” Maguire told LCFC TV.“We have worked tirelessly all week trying to put on a good performance this week and the first 20 minutes we started pretty slow.“There was not really any tempo from either team. They probably edged the first 20 minutes, but apart from the first 20 minutes I would say we were the better team and in control of the game.“They then scored when we were playing our best football and in our first spell of pressure. To be fair to the lad it is a great strike, a great finish. We’ll look back and we will work hard.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

And Mido believes his continued success would attract attention from the world’s biggest clubs.Mido told CNN: “You never know in football.”If Barcelona or Real Madrid come for you your head is going to flip, all the players are like that.”Barcelona and Real Madrid are different – no disrespect to Liverpool.”I think Barcelona and Real Madrid were waiting to see how Salah would do this season; they don’t buy players after only one good or great season.”I think if Salah scores 25-plus goals, I think they will come for him and it will be difficult for Liverpool to keep him.”
Real Madrid fullback Carvajal: We should’ve finished off Villarrealby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveReal Madrid fullback Dani Carvajal admits they blew two points for their draw with Villarreal.Real kicked off 2019 with a 2-2 draw against the Yellow Submarine.Carvajal lamented, “We had some real chances to finish the game and make it 1-3, but in the end, we drew and dropped two points. We needed those three points to close the gaps on the leader. Now we need to keep working hard and rack up some points. This is not an easy place to come play. We’re disappointed because we were ahead for practically the whole match and not winning really stings.””We knew that they would have to push forward and leave the defence open.

Having secured an unprecedented domestic treble in 2018-19, Manchester City will be looking to make it a hat-trick of Premier League crowns under Pep Guardiola when they kick off their title defence against West Ham this weekend.The Citizens savoured their second top-flight success in as many years under the Spaniard last season, beating out Liverpool in a pulsating title race while also claiming both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup to add to their increasingly impressive trophy haul.But the club will know that they face sterner threats across the board this time around despite having strengthened their own hand over the off-season, with many of their rivals looking to topple their ambitions.

Match Preview With the success of their historic domestic treble last season – or quadruple, depending on definition – Manchester City will be out to defend their crowns this season when they get their new Premier League campaign underway against West Ham at London Stadium.Pep Guardiola’s side swept the board at home last season, winning the top-flight title, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Community Shield, with only the Champions League eluding them in the end, and the Citizens are expected to be hungry for more.Guardiola has in fact already tasted silverware success again this season, picking up the Community Shield once more, against Liverpool, who are widely tipped to be their key opponents in the hunt for glory again.But the Spaniard is more than aware that the Reds won’t be their only threat this season, talking up the potential of their other ‘Big Six’ rivals after the win at Wembley on Sunday.”I think United with Maguire and the other players they bought, Arsenal as well, Chelsea and Tottenham, they won all of their pre-season so I think there will be many, many contenders this time,” he stated .”But I think Liverpool… we were so happy when we realised which team we were going to face for the rest of the season, they are the champions of Europe, that’s why I gave a lot of credit to our victory today.”They

(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Ohio State has had a somewhat annoying uniform trend against Michigan in recent years, as the Buckeyes have often gone away from their traditional garb to sport alternate jerseys against the rival Wolverines.The alternate uniforms have usually looked good, of course, but for a classic rivalry game, they always felt a little bit weird.So, Ohio State fans should love the uniforms the Buckeyes are reportedly wearing against Michigan this year.Ohio State will reportedly be sporting its traditional home uniform against Michigan next weekend.Anthony Rothman broke the news:I’m hearing from Ohio State sports info #Buckeyes will wear their traditional uniforms vs TTUN next week. No throwback. @971CandR— Anthony Rothman (@AnthonyRothman) November 14, 2018That is great news.Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at noon next Saturday.

COLUMBUS, OH – SEPTEMBER 08: Tate Martell #18 of the Ohio State Buckeyes breaks free on a 47-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Ohio Stadium on September 8, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio State won 52-3. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)In the event that Dwayne Haskins enters the 2019 NFL Draft, Tate Martell should have the opportunity to win the starting quarterback job at Ohio State. Regardless of how his collegiate career pans out, his CFL rights have already been negotiated.The CFL rules state that teams can claim exclusive rights to up to 45 players by placing them on their negotiation list. These players can be in college, on the cusp of making a professional roster or actually in the NFL.Well, the Toronto Argonauts now hold Martell’s rights, if the dual-threat quarterback decides to take his talents to Canada. He wasn’t the only notable name in college football that had their rights negotiated.Gardner Minshew, Will Grier and Khalil Tate were also on the CFL negotiation list.If Tate Martell ever decides to take his game north of the border, the Toronto Argonauts currently hold his CFL negotiation rights. The Montreal Alouettes, meanwhile, hold the CFL rights to Braxton Miller, while Saskatchewan Roughriders hold the CFL rights to Joe Burrow. https://t.co/lG0OhztiD8— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) December 13, 2018The Argonauts currently have James Franklin and McLeod Bethel-Thompson on the depth chart at quarterback.Since Martell is just a freshman for the Buckeyes, it’ll be quite some time before he even considers playing in the CFL. Nonetheless, Toronto is making a future investment that could eventually work in its favor.Ohio State fans shouldn’t worry one bit about this news, as Martell will be in Columbus for the foreseeable future.
SANTA CLARA, CA – JANUARY 07: Trevor Lawrence #16 of the Clemson Tigers speaks to the media during the press conference after his teams 44-16 win against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Levi’s Stadium on January 7, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)No football program is as well stocked at the quarterback position than the Clemson Tigers. Trevor Lawrence will be considered a Heisman favorite over the next two seasons, and the team recently secured the commitment of one of the best quarterback recruits since Lawrence: five-star DJ Uiagalelei.Uiagalelei gave his pledge earlier this month. He is the No. 13 player in the country and the top-rated quarterback in the class of 2020.He helms what some believe may become the best recruiting class of all time. Uiagalelei is one of four five-star commits, and 15 of 16 blue-chip players.This week, Trevor Lawrence and DJ Uiagalelei got to bond a bit at “The QB Retreat,” an adidas-backed event held in California.The event features dozens of the top college and high school quarterbacks in the country, so Lawrence and Uiagalelei were natural invitees.A glimpse of the present and the future of #Clemson football was on display at #TheQBRetreat as #TrevorLawrence and @DJUiagalelei came together to talk shop. #ALLIN pic.twitter.com/TAydFkfVW2— Kevin Carden (@KevinCarden) May 28, 2019Overtime has video of the current and future Tiger stars throwing at the event.Throw in former QBs Tajh Boyd and national champion Deshaun Watson, and even the highly successful Kelly Bryant, who took Clemson to the College Football Playoff before being unseated by Lawrence, and the Tigers have been set at quarterback for a long time.The team also has four-star Taisun Phommachanh joining the team this year, a talented played in his own right.Throw in guys like Bryant, Chad Kelly, and Hunter Johnson that have transferred away, and it is hard to imagine another program having this level of success recruiting any position, much less the most important in the sport.
ARLINGTON, TX – DECEMBER 31: TV/radio personality Paul Finebaum of the SEC Network speaks on air before the Goodyear Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium on December 31, 2015 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)On Saturday morning, college football pundit Paul Finebaum was a guest on ESPN’s SportsCenter before Week 5 of the season.Per usual, his appearances on Saturday morning come with a few predictions.During the course of his time on the show, the SEC analyst revealed his “Upset Special” for the week’s action of games.So, who did Finebaum put on upset alert this weekend? He thinks Utah will have its hands full with Washington State today.The Utes enter the game as a 6-point favorite, but lost last weekend at an unranked USC team starting its third-string quarterback. Now the Cougars’ vaunted offense comes rolling into town after hanging 63 points – in a loss – to UCLA.Utah boasts one of the best defenses in the country, but the Utes were exposed slightly last weekend.Washington State and Utah kick off at 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on FS1.

If they want my opinion, I’ll go and speak to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven’t been contacted so far,” Kohli had said in Mumbai.The newly formed Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) co-member Anshuman Gaekwad told IANS that that they will go in with an open mind when they sit down to interview the short-listed candidates.The CAC — comprising India’s first World Cup winning captain and legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev, former batsman and coach Gaekwad and former women’s captain Shanta Rangaswamy — have been entrusted with the job of selecting a new head coach.The current coaching staff were handed an extension till the tour of West Indies as their contract expired after the World Cup.

It doesn’t bother us. We are a committee. That’s his opinion and the BCCI takes a note of it, not us.”It all depends on BCCI. BCCI has to give us guideline and then we will go accordingly. He has already said yesterday (what he wants). When we chose the women’s coach, we did not contact anybody. We did it on our own,” Gaekwad further said.Asked about Gaekwad’s comments, Ganguly said: “Every individual is different so I cannot comment.”Ganguly also refused to comment on India and Mumbai opener Prithvi Shaw being banned by the BCCI for a doping violation.”I am not sure what exactly is the truth.

Generally speaking, we want so much more from the retail experience than browsing, buying and leaving these days. Things have moved on, and one of our favorite pioneers is Saturdays Surf NYC. As of 2009, the downtown live/surf brand launched its flagship space on Crosby Street in SoHo. Since then, Saturdays has launched its second NY store in the West Village and two international branches in Kobe and Tokyo.Which ever store you’re in, you can depend on wanting to stay and hangout way beyond making your purchase, thanks to espresso bars, outdoor bench gardens and the warm and welcoming dude atmosphere. All this bromance made us want to get to know the instigators better, so we caught up with co-founder Josh Rosen to shoot the breeze.Hey Josh, how’s business?Business is doing very well. In the recent months, we opened our fourth store in the beautiful Japanese city of Kobe, and we also launched the second issue of Saturdays Magazine. The summer collection has just hit stores, and we are about to start selling Spring 2014 in our showroom. We are busy but having a great time.The store doubles up as a popular hangout spot. How important is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to the success of a store that’s still carving its reputation?From day one, we’ve made it our mission to curate an environment where people can hang out and relax. When we opened in 2009, Colin, Morgan and myself were the only people that worked in the store. Everyone that came in felt the passion that we had for what we were doing. It was our lifestyle and our baby, and I think people really responded to that. Now that we spend less time in the stores, we make sure in the hiring process that we find people that are passionate to share our message and maintain that energy.What’s your favorite thing in store right now?Product wise, it’s all the patterns that we created for our summer collection. Other then that, it’s always amazing to see all the people in the back garden of our SoHo store.If you could place a mini ocean to surf on anywhere in NY where would it be and why?When I’m biking over either the Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge, I always look down and see that little inlet. I feel like it would be the perfect place for a wave machine.Can you tell us about any brands or creative’s you’re really excited about right now? We have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time in Japan in the past few years. There is so much going on there with men’s fashion. N.Hoolywood, White Mountaineering, and North Face Purple label are a few brands I’m feeling at the moment.

Generally, having to ‘fake it’ is indicative of a failure or shortcoming.Kids will fake an illness to get out of a test they refused to study for. People will buy fake diamonds to look wealthier than they really are. And companies make fake cheese for those who can’t digest lactose.But the faking that the BMW engineers did in the i8 isn’t suggestive of a fault or flaw but rather the inverse.What am I referring to? The evocative, riotous engine notes heard in the cabin of the i8 are completely fake, entirely manufactured. The burbling, sporty sounds inside the i8 are simply prerecorded sounds of the engine piped through some speakers.In fact, the engine’s roar doesn’t even necessarily correspond to engine rpm; the sounds are piped in simply to entertain and delight the driver.Don’t let this perturb; the i8 is so good, so smooth and quiet, and twitchy and alive, that drivers won’t for a split second fret over artificial engine sounds. In fact, buyers will likely send the BMW-i engineers a thank you letter.Plug-in hybridYes, the i8 is a plug-in hybrid, but it’s like nothing else on the road today. It’s not just a plug-in hybrid; it’s also a four-wheel drive sports car.Under the hood, which is bolted shut, is an electric motor mated to a two-speed automatic transmission. Producing 129 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, the small electric motor drives the front wheels.In the mid-rear of the car lies a transversely mounted, turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder gasoline engine, which has both a motor-generator (used for running accessories and the eBoost function) and a six-speed automatic bolted to it. Producing 228 hp (152 hp per liter) and 236 lb-ft of torque, this pint-sized three-banger is responsible for driving the rear wheels.Cradling these two independent powerplants is an aluminum frame system centralized by a sealed and cooled 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that rests in the center of the car where a conventional driveshaft would be located.On top of that frame is the i8’s carbon fiber body. And if you’re keeping track at home: yes, the i8 is a body-on-frame sports car. But it’s nothing like your grandpa’s Gran Torino.This body architecture has been cleverly called “LifeDrive”. On top, the carbon fiber body tub is where the occupants reside. And the frame beneath it houses the driving bits. Makes sense, right?A mode for every moodAt the push the start button, the i8 comes alive with a computerized chime, the sound of which, given the seriousness of the rest of the vehicle, is strangely sci-fi cartoonish. It sounds like a fazer gun charging up.The default drive setting is called “Comfort”. In Comfort the TFT instrument cluster is backed by a grey hue. In this mode, car is driven in an intelligent hybrid mode, which relies primarily on the front electric motor for propulsion but the three-cylinder is ready to help out at a moment’s notice.Above that – or beneath, depending on your mindset – is EcoPro and eDrive modes. EcoPro takes Comfort and retards drivetrain power and electrical loads – namely the climate control features. In this mode, the instrument cluster takes on a blue hue.eDrive transforms the i8 into an EV, driven solely by the electric motor in the front. The car has enough energy onboard to travel up to 22 miles in eDrive up to speeds of 75 mph.Then, finally, we have Sport mode, represented by bright orange glowing instruments in the TFT screen. Sport mode stiffens up the chassis, quickens shifts, perfects steering directness, and maximizes eBoost. This is the i8’s least efficient mode but perhaps where it is most at home. A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing eBoost is a function of the motor-generator bolted to the three-cylinder engine. To fill out low- and mid-range torque until the turbocharger spools up, the motor-generator literally flips over from its accessory powering position and supplies extra power to the gas engine.Taking the entire sensory experience into account, the i8 feels not like a rocketship but like a spaceship.Artificial noise, real performanceForget everything you know about plug-in hybrid driving dynamics. The i8 dashes them to bits.At wide-open throttle, the BMW i8 – thanks to its 357 hp and 420 torques – can rip to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. And while the sensation is absolutely intoxicating, it’s the noise that delights.The sound is almost indescribable. You have the roar, albeit artificial, of the beefy sounding three-cylinder behind you and the whine/whistle of the electric motor in front. Together, it’s a sound straight out of the Jetsons. Frankly, it’s the sound the new Formula 1 cars should make.Some have scoffed at the i8’s horsepower numbers, given its anticipated sticker price. It’s the torque, though, that makes the show. 420 pound-feet isn’t astronomical, sure.Thanks to the two electric motors, the quick revving three-cylinder, and big turbo, the torque is
