I am happy, of course, about my players and about their work and togetherness today.“They gave their best, it was the same thing against Cardiff. I think against Cardiff, we lacked a little more freshness to have the efficiency and precision in their play – good pass, good touches, good control and good moves, all these things.“It was difficult also for Everton to find a solution against us because we defended very well, deep, with togetherness and quality.“After, I think it was difficult after our recovery to have good moves and it was important in the second half to try and use some good opportunities when we recovered the ball.“We tried to score. With the ball recovery and a good assist from Ricky (Ricardo Pereira), he gave a good ball with good timing and space for Jamie [Vardy]. We know the quality of Jamie in this situation.” last_img read more

Kirk Herbstreit Highlights Ohio State’s Strengths This Season

I know we are young but lots of talent. Go Bucks— Chris Lawson (@Law_Dog_osu) August 4, 2016His answer: quarterback play, athleticism and, most importantly, having a team that is “motivated” and “hungry.” Being incredibly athletic, QB is special, and most importantly back to having a team MOTIVATED and HUNGRY https://t.co/b58vCXnU9H— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) August 4, 2016Ohio State opens its fall camp on Sunday.The Buckeyes open their regular season on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.last_img read more

Photos: Braxton Miller Honored To Have Poster At Ohio Stadium

(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Braxton Miller is a bona fide Ohio State great after his tenure as All-Big Ten quarterback and later a dynamic wide receiver.His status with the program wasn’t in question, but now he is officially in the ranks of the “greats” at Ohio Stadium, where his poster has been added.Miller and defensive end Joey Bosa are the two latest Buckeyes to receive the honor.Bosa and Braxton have been added into the Hall of Greats at Ohio Stadium. pic.twitter.com/7N9gVoNy3a— Not James Vogel (@Not_James_Vogel) August 31, 2016Miller is incredibly grateful to have his posted hanging at “The Horseshoe.”Miller proved to be a threat at every level of offense during his time at Ohio State. As quarterback from 2011-2013, he threw for 5,295 yards, 52 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. He rushed for 3,315 yards and 33 touchdowns, including 1,000 yard seasons on the ground in 2012 and 2013. As a receiver in 2015, Miller caught 25 passes for 340 yards and three touchdowns.While his numbers at receiver won’t blow anyone away, it was his first year playing the position, and the team dealt with issues at quarterback, as J.T. Barrett did not win the job back from the up-and-down Cardale Jones until midway through the year. Even so, Miller showed enough to be a third round pick by the Houston Texans, where he now plays alongside superstar DeAndre Hopkins and promising receivers like Jaelen Strong and Will Fuller.last_img read more

Thiago Silva: Neymar uncertainty no excuse for PSG loss

first_imgParis Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva says the ongoing uncertainty surrounding star man Neymar was no excuse for their performance as they were deservedly beaten 2-1 at Rennes on Sunday night.After initially leading through Edinson Cavani, the Ligue 1 champions were pegged back on the stroke of half-time by M’Baye Niang before Romain Del Castillo headed in a superb winner shortly after the break.Speaking on Canal+ after the game, Silva was asked if the transfer speculation around his Brazilian compatriot had affected the side as they slumped to a surprise defeat. Article continues below Editors’ Picks 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? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? “It’s hard, right?” he said. “For everyone, the club, and for us, the players. But that isn’t an excuse. It isn’t because of that that we’ve been less focused tonight. Ney wasn’t here and we have to concentrate on ourselves, and about all we need to do this season. It’s a shame to lose in the second game of the season.“It was a difficult match. We started well, we opened the scoring but then we relaxed a bit, and I don’t know why we lost our concentration.“It was a shame to concede at the end of the first half, and then at the beginning of the second half we concede a goal that we wouldn’t usually concede. We are going to lift our heads up, think about the next game and try to improve, because today it wasn’t the PSG we know.”He added: “We worked well, but this is only the beginning of the season. This is not an excuse, because Rennes played well. They were solid and more attentive. I do not know exactly what happened. It will be better in the next matches.’Manager Thomas Tuchel had similar thoughts about his side’s display, after watching a lethargic performance. Though PSG saw more of the ball than their opponents, they created fewer shooting opportunities and never managed to pose a consistent threat to Rennes’ lead.But, with Neymar’s move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid thought to be moving closer to a conclusion at last, Tuchel wasn’t able to offer any update on the transfer.Next up for PSG is a clash with Toulouse next Sunday in the club’s third match of the Ligue 1 campaign.PSG topped Nimes 3-0 in the club’s opener behind goals from Cavani, Kylian Mbappe and Angel di Maria.The champions currently sit eighth in Ligue 1 with Lyon, Nice and Rennes currently tied atop the table with six points from two matches.last_img read more

Video: This Is College Football’s Craziest Play Of The Day – By Far

first_imgA general view of Vanderbilt's football field.NASHVILLE, TN – SEPTEMBER 17: A general view of the game between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Ole Miss Rebels at Vanderbilt Stadium on September 17, 2011 in Nashville, Tennessee. (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)There’s a major upset brewing in the SEC today as Vanderbilt holds a healthy lead late in the first half against Florida. The Gators entered this game on a high from the team’s huge win over LSU last weekend.In a classic hangover game, Florida trails 21-3 and the team has looked very shaky on both sides of the ball for the duration of the game. Quarterback Feleipe Franks already has several turnovers on the day, the latest of which is easily the wackiest play of the day.Franks attempted to scramble, but lost the ball. What ensued was crazy.Several Vanderbilt players attempted to corral the ball, but each failed – which only helped the team gain field position. Check it out.Hot Potato??????? ????? pic.twitter.com/IEXjzGEs6b— NCAAF Nation (@NCAAFNation247) October 13, 2018With just over four minutes remaining in the first half, the Gators are in serious trouble of losing their second game of the season.Can Florida pull it out, or will the Commodores score a massive upset?last_img read more

(Photo by Mike Comer/Getty Images)Three schools have been named the favorites for Clemson quarterback transfer Kelly Bryant, who announced earlier this season his decision to leave the Tigers’ program.Bryant, who’s received interest from several major programs, has already taken a bunch of transfer visits.Three schools appear to be standing out, though.From 247Sports:With one official left, Miami is out. Auburn is back in.According to a source close to Bryant, he will officially visit the Tigers sometime next week (the date is to be determine). He then plans to announce his transfer plans Dec. 4.Why the change? We can’t answer that, but it certaily signals that Auburn is a top contender. According to our intel, Auburn, Missouri and North Carolina might be the three teams to watch but Mississippi State, which Bryant officially visited over the weekend should not be counted out. “He had a great visit to Mississippi State,” a source told 247Sports.Multiple insiders believe that Mississippi State could be the real favorite here, but Arkansas has also been highly thought of, as Bryant has a good relationship with the coaching staff.Stay tuned.last_img read more
