The Standard Liege game was different, we scored four goals and it was comfortable. It shows we’ve got fight and desire.”When teams come here the pressure is on us, so it gives them more freedom, the expectation is on us, but we got the three points and that’s the main thing.”
Kentucky superfan Ashley Judd wasn’t a fan of Arkansas’ physical play during today’s SEC title game, and she expressed that opinion during the contest on Twitter. Unfortunately, some of the responses she got were wildly inappropriate.Judd took to Twitter to take aim at a number of users who made sexist remarks and threatened her with sexual violence. She also retweeted one example.When when I express a stout opinion during #MarchMadness I am called a whore, c—, threatened with sexual violence. Not okay.— ashley judd (@AshleyJudd) March 15, 2015I am sorry to retweet but this is a typical example. “@Leeroy_MAX: .@AshleyJudd Go suck on Cal’s two inch dick ye Bitch whore.”— ashley judd (@AshleyJudd) March 15, 2015In 2011, Judd revealed that she was a victim of sexual abuse as a child in her memoirs. It goes without saying that this is completely unacceptable, regardless of how serious the threats actually are. Do better, college basketball fans.
nick chubb sprints on treadmillWhen healthy, Nick Chubb is one of the best running backs in all of college football. While his rehab from last season’s knee injury is reportedly going well, and he’s already taking part in practice, new head coach Kirby Smart does not expect his star to be 100-percent to start the season. Luckily, Georgia has another ridiculously-talented running back in Sony Michel, and Smart wants to platoon the two to start the year.Kirby Smart told me today Georgia would ideally platoon Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, while developing another… https://t.co/XZiFz0Svrs— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) March 21, 2016 More from Smart, via ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg:…We’ve got a couple young pups, we signed a guy, but that’s the scariest position because even with Nick at 100 percent, which I don’t think he’s going to be 100 percent right away, we’ve only got two. We want to platoon them.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not interested in “bulls***” stories about the destinies of teams that spent Christmas Day top of the Premier League.A 2-0 victory over Wolves on Friday ensured the Reds would be top of the pile on December 25, while Manchester City’s 3-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday kept their advantage at four points.Only twice since the start of the 2008-09 season has the team who led the way at Christmas failed to win the title, and on both occasions it was Liverpool.

Klopp was emphatic in declaring the fact irrelevant to this year’s race and underlined that the Reds are only thinking about their next match against Newcastle United at Anfield on Boxing Day.”I heard all these things … [about] how many times in the last years when you were first at Christmas you won the title, only Liverpool haven’t. Wow. You [the media] are afraid to say it because you think then I know it, but it’s all bulls*** stories,” the German told a news conference.”What is it? What does it mean? It’s a different team, it’s a different time, everything was different. It’s not interesting.”If it was not the case and Liverpool had been champions twice as well, would I then think, ‘Oh, half way through, job done’? No, of course not.”Nothing happened so far. We don’t have to think about May. What we have to do is think about December 26 against Newcastle. Let’s try everything we have to win that game.”After that, Arsenal is coming. You don’t have to go home, you can stay in the stadium because they’re coming. It’s a very intense time. Let’s enjoy it.”Is it Boxing Day yet?! #PL pic.twitter.com/c0OxxKpUys — Premier League (@premierleague) December 24, 2018 Klopp stated he felt “nothing” after City fell to Palace and questioned why Tottenham, who thrashed Everton 6-2 on Sunday and sit six points off top, are not being included in the title discussions.”We never think about Man City, so now we start thinking about Man City? That would be silly,” he said.”I didn’t expect Man City would lose against Crystal Palace, of course not, but it’s clear it can happen to us and them, that’s football.”Nothing changed. Absolutely nothing. We were always focused on the next game and that hasn’t changed since Saturday.”In the moment when people who are not involved, but emotionally involved like friends and that, and they see City lose 3-2, all these messages come in like, ‘Wow, unbelievable…’ and I don’t even feel it, because if you’re in the job you know you still have 20-something games to play.”Don’t think that you’ve won something before you win something, we are not children anymore.

Paul Pogba has scored more goals in three games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than he did in his last 17 appearances for Jose Mourinho.The France international netted his fourth goal since Solskjaer was appointed interim boss by United, giving the Reds a 2-0 lead over Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Sunday after he had netted the opener. The goal also saw him become the first United player to net consecutive Premier League braces since Wayne Rooney in December 2012.He is now on four goals and three assists for December, making it the most productive month of his entire top-flight career so far.

Heaven. #MUNBOU pic.twitter.com/DGDu2SkiBj— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 30, 2018The 25-year-old put in a number of spectacular performances to help France win the World Cup last summer, and was appointed United’s vice-captain by Mourinho at the start of the season, but things turned sour for the former Juventus man after he criticised his manager’s tactics.The pair’s relationship then went from bad to worse over the next few months and ultimately ended when the Reds parted ways with their boss.When Mourinho was finally sacked, Pogba posted a photo of himself appearing to smile on social media along with the message, “Caption this.”Although the midfielder quickly deleted the post, he came under criticism for his remark – most notably from former United right-back Gary Neville who responded, “You do one as well.”Pogba became the Reds’ record signing when he rejoined the club from Juve in 2016, but his poor performances led to the United youth graduate being linked with moves elsewhere. Some rumours had even suggested the Frenchman could move back to The Old Lady.But he looks much happier in a Man Utd shirt now and had a strong relationship with Solskjaer when coached by the Norwegian in the United academy. In fact, Solskjaer has heaped praise on Pogba and revealed he wants to build a team around him as United aim to close the gap on the top four and finish in a Champions League spot at the end of the season.

Usain Bolt has announced he will no longer pursue a career in football, saying “it was fun while it lasted” but admitted the situation was not handled in the best way.The 32-year-old Jamaican sprinting legend won multiple Olympic gold medals in London, Beijing and Rio, only to try his hand at professional football after his retirement from track.Bolt had trained with multiple clubs over the past few years, with Borussia Dortmund and Norweigian side Stromsgodset some of the biggest among them, but his best opportunity came with the Central Coast Mariners of Australia’s A-League.

Appearing in friendlies with the club, Bolt scored a double in a match in October and earned the chance to sign a contract with the team.However the two sides could not come to an agreement on compensation, as commercial backing to finance Bolt’s desired wages were not found.As a result, the Mariners and Bolt agreed to mutually terminate the trial in early November.Bolt also turned down an offer from Maltese side Valletta in October, and ultimately he was unable to find another option.Now Bolt has decided to end his dream of becoming a professional footballer and expressed some regret with how it was handled, even if he did enjoy the overall experience.“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn,” Bolt said.”It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted.”Having left football behind, and sprinting in his past, Bolt explained he is focused on business going forward..“I’m just doing many different things – the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses,” Bolt added. “I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a business man now.”

The real ones know. I would never say anything bad about Lyon they are the club that gave me the opportunity when I needed it,” he tweeted.I really like Lyon and People see me in the streets all the time!

The Dutchman has not missed a single Ligue 1 or Champions League game this season and has registered six goals and 12 assists in those 28 appearances.Since leaving Manchester United, Depay has played in a more central position for Lyon, although he does still operate as a winger on occasions.He has also become a regular for the Dutch national side and played a huge part in their Nations League success earlier in the season. Depay netted in victories against France and Germany to secure the Netherlands’ spot as group winners.
Napoli have announced that they have postponed Marek Hamsik’s transfer to the Chinese Super League due to concerns about the payment of the transfer fee.The 31-year-old had been expected to complete a move to Dalian Yifang for a fee in the region of €15 million (£13m/$17m) this week.AdChoices广告However, Napoli have called a halt to the deal, blaming a problem with the agreed “payment methods”, although they do not specify with which club in China they have been negotiating.

The Chinese transfer window is open until February 28.Napoli head coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed last week that Hamsik had asked to leave Napoli after 12 years at the club.The Slovakia international midfielder has made 520 appearances for Napoli to date, managing one goal in 19 appearances this season.If he was to eventually complete his move to Dalian Yifang, he’d join the likes of Nicolas Gaitan and Yannick Carrasco, who have also left European football for the Chinese club in recent years.Club president Aurelio De Laurentiis said of the club’s record goalscorer: “I have told Hamsik that this is his home. Even if he wants to come back, we’ll be happy to welcome him back.”It’s a beautiful story. He has always done his duty. He is impeccable.”Napoli face Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday and it remains to be seen whether Hamsik will be involved.

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Ohio State officially announced last Wednesday night its punishment for head football coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion has been suspended for the first three games of the season. Meyer can return to practice on Sept. 2.The Buckeyes’ players have been without Meyer for basically the entire month. He was placed on paid administrative leave at the beginning of August pending the results of the investigation into his handling of domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.Meyer was able to meet with his Ohio State players for the first time on Thursday, following the news of his suspension.Interim coach Ryan Day detailed on the Big Ten coaches’ teleconference call how that meeting went.“The guys were happy to see him. There was a lot of hugs. He was giving them an update of what was going on and talking about moving forward. That was the gist of it,” Day told reporters.On today’s B1G teleconference call, Ryan Day talked about Urban Meyer’s message to team last Thursday: “The guys were happy to see him. There was a lot of hugs. He was giving them an update of what was going on and talking about moving forward. That was the gist of it.”— Derrick Webb (@dw1509) August 28, 2018Ohio State’s practices have reportedly been lively in the absence of Meyer. The Buckeyes’ players haven’t seemed to be too affected by everything that’s been going on outside of the facility, but that could change once the games begin.The schedule isn’t too tough during Meyer’s suspension, though it could be a factor in Week 3 against TCU. That appears to be the one game the Buckeyes could lose during his three-game suspension. The Horned Frogs will be good and the game is in Texas.OSU is set to open its season on Saturday against Oregon State. Meyer is able to return to practice the following day. He’ll be back coaching in games Week 4, one week prior to the major showdown against Penn State in State College, Pa.Ohio State has opened the season ranked inside the top five. The Buckeyes, despite Meyer’s punishment, are a Big Ten and national title favorite.
TUSCALOOSA, AL – OCTOBER 24: A general view of Bryant-Denny Stadium during the game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Tennessee Volunteers on October 24, 2015 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)The third week of college football presents several marquee matchups, which includes the SEC showdown between Alabama and Mississippi. After the Crimson Tide dismantled their first two opponents, the Rebels could provide a tough challenge.Ole Miss currently holds one of the best offenses in football, averaging 61.5 points in their opening contests.Nonetheless, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum made it clear that he believes Alabama will continue their dominance.From 247sports.com:“I think Alabama is going to win,” Finebaum said. “The question is whether it’s going to be more than 21 for anyone keeping score. I think this Alabama team is unstoppable.”“(Alabama has) the best offense I’ve seen in modern time, Joe,” Finebaum said. “The best quarterback (Tua Tagovailoa) in maybe a couple generations.”Although Ole Miss has the firepower to score in bunches, Finebaum made an outstanding point about their defense. Through two games, the Rebels have allowed an average of 34.0 points. Considering that Nick Saban’s offense is averaging 54.0 points per game, this could turn into another blowout.Fortunately for Mississippi, they’ll have the crowd on their side at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.Finebaum is rolling with the Tide, but who are you picking?Alabama and Ole Miss are set to kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET. The game will be available on ESPN.
AUBURN – OCTOBER 16: The Auburn University band comes out of the tunnel before the game between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium on October 16, 2010 in Auburn, Alabama. (Photo by Mike Zarrilli/Getty Images)Gus Malzahn was just given a big contract extension after last season, when his Auburn Tigers won the SEC West. For some fans, that decision hasn’t aged well.The Arkansas Razorbacks, which wound up hiring Chad Morris away from SMU, reportedly made a big run at Malzahn.He is an Arkansas native, and was a legendary high school coach in the state. Instead, he parlayed it into a deal that made him one of the five highest-paid coaches in the sport.Malzahn is set to make $6.7 million this season, per USA Today‘s recently updated database. That puts him behind Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Jimbo Fisher, and Jim Harbaugh. That’s the whole list.Perhaps more importantly, his buyout is at nearly $33 million, which makes it very hard for Auburn to fire him.Even so, after tonight’s loss at Mississippi State, some Auburn fans are done with Gus Malzahn.It’s not realistic for him to be on the hot seat, but logic doesn’t often factor in to college football fandom.I don’t care how much it costs. Malzahn has to go. If he’s an offensive genius, then I’m a leading New Testament Scholar because I got a C in Greek.— Will Standridge II (@WillStandridge) October 7, 2018I hate to say it… I don’t want to say it… but the Gus Malzahn era at Auburn is over. The question is how long the administration and fan base take to align on this fact.— Ben? Max (@BenBloodworth) October 7, 2018You single handily gave him an extension. Now that you’re gone, he’s exposed. Malzahn is an opportunistic coach. He needs to go back to high school.

Ever since the smartphone was announced at the launch of the Realme 3 the company has been claiming that the Pro version of the phone will go against Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 Pro. Past rumours and leaks suggest that the Realme 3 Pro will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor which — on paper — is much more powerful when compared to the Snapdragon 675 which powers the Redmi Note 7 Pro. In a new teaser, the Realme CEO claims that the Realme 3 Pro is all about speed and is way faster than the Redmi Note 7 Pro.On Wednesday, Realme CEO Madhav Seth posted a picture on Twitter keeping aside both Realme 3 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro. In the photo, Seth is seen comparing the upcoming Realme 3 Pro with the Redmi Note 7 Pro and says that the Realme phone is capable of handling games like Fortnite much better when compared to the Xiaomi phone.In the tweet, Seth mentions, “How about playing #Fortnite on #realme3Pro? I believe #realme3Pro will be the 1st in its segment that can directly support it. Tried to play this game on some latest “Pro” devices but none of them could manage. When it comes to speed, chipset matters.”Realme is working very hard to take on the likes of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 Pro with the upcoming Realme 3 Pro. Past leaks have revealed some of the key specs about the Realme 3 Pro. It is rumoured that the Realme 3 Pro will come with Snapdragon 710 processor. Some other rumours suggest that the upcoming Realme phone will come with Oppo’s VOOC flash charging tech and sport a punchhole-punch display instead of a waterdrop notch.advertisementConsidering with the Realme 3 Pro the company wants to take on the likes of Redmi Note 7 Pro it is expected that Realme 3 Pro will pack triple camera set up on the back panel.
