first_img​Mariappa insists Watford deserve more pointsby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAdrian Mariappa feels that Watford should have more points in the Premier League.The Hornets are in 9th place with 28 points, only a point off 7th position.But Mariappa believes they have been even better than their position suggests. And he believes there is more to come in the second half of the season.He said to the Watford Observer: “I think there’s been a real togetherness this season and we’ve had some good team performances and I think we can still improve which is always a good sign.”There’s plenty of games we’ve played well in and haven’t got the points we should have done. And, likewise, we’ve come back from losing positions in games to draw and win which shows good character as well.”To come away from some games disappointed to not have as many points as we could have done is, I think, a good sign at this stage of the season considering where we are.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgArsenal legend Keown: Ramsey debacle shows our levelby Freddie Taylor9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal legend Martin Keown has slammed the club for not offering Aaron Ramsey a new contract.The midfielder has been allowed to leave the club at the end of the season, with Juventus reported to be his likely destination.And Keown told the Daily Mail: “If Arsenal are admitting they are only able to sign loan players, then it is staggering that they are happy to let one of their prized assets leave for nothing.”Juventus looks the most likely destination for Aaron Ramsey when his contract runs out at the end of the season. The Italian champions must be rubbing their hands together.”Ramsey has conducted himself with great dignity this season but it is astonishing that Arsenal, a powerhouse in the English game, could not put together a package to keep him.”The team are still formidable going forward. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are good enough to grace any team in the Premier League’s top six.”But the £100 million spent to sign those players last season and hefty wages given to other star players has led to this situation.”Unai Emery must look at his back line – where they are short at centre half – and wish he could bring in reinforcements. After all, Arsenal are only three points off the top four.”Emery is finding that decisions made before he arrived have left him with his hands tied.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

It’s the seventh straight year that Barnes’ team has failed to reach the Sweet 16. Following the game, Texas athletic director Steve Patterson was asked if Barnes will be back next season. His response seems to be a dooming one. When I asked #Texas AD Steve Patterson if Rick Barnes would be back next season, he said, “I’m not talking.”— Chip Brown (@ChipBrownHD) March 19, 2015That’s, obviously, not a good sign for Barnes’ job security.

Dortmund hint at Werner & Hazard future calls

October 27, 2019 | isuyyvzl | No Comments

first_imgBorussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has ruled out a double-transfer swoop for Timo Werner and Thorgan Hazard in the January window, indicating that one of them has already sealed a move elsewhere.Werner, currently plying his trade as a striker for RB Leipzig, has been in prolific form in Germany this season, scoring 11 goals in 17 matches to earn the attention of a number of European clubs.Bayern Munich has been mooted as a possible next destination for the 22-year-old and he admitted in December that he would consider a switch to the Allianz Arena.

Hazard meanwhile, has been in similarly impressive form for Borussia Monchengladbach, contributing nine goals and six assists over the first half of the season.Liverpool and Bayern have been touted as potential suitors for the Belgian, while it remains unclear as to whether Chelsea have the option to take up a buy-back clause in his current contract.Dortmund have also been linked with the Bundesliga pair, but club chief Watzke has insisted that they are only in the hunt for one of them.”At least I have the impression that one of the two players has already regulated his future and it is not with us,” Watzke stated.BVB are currently top of the league in Germany, six points clear of arch-rivals and reigning champions Bayern.Leipzig and Monchengladbach both still have an outside chance of challenging for the title too, with the former 11 points behind in fourth and the latter two points ahead of them in third.With three weeks of the January transfer window still to come, Hazard and Werner are free to negotiate with other clubs, but it remains to be seen whether or not their current employers will do business at this stage of the season.The Bundesliga resumes after the winter break on January 18, with Bayern re-starting the action away to Hoffenheim.last_img read more

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti expects negotiations with Real Madrid to bring James Rodriguez to Napoli will take “a very long time”. Ancelotti, who worked with James, 28, at both Madrid and Bayern Munich, is keen to sign the Colombia international. But Partenopei president Aurelio De Laurentiis has told Madrid they will have to lower their demands for the attacker, who is surplus to requirements at the Santiago Bernabeu.  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? De Laurentiis is confident a deal can be struck, however, having already claimed that the player wants to make the move to play under his old boss once more.  Ancelotti is also keen and has already been in contact with the playmaker, though he doesn’t see his side as being desperate for the signing as the new season approaches.  “James can play in many positions behind the centre-forward,” Ancelotti told TV Luna on Saturday after a pre-season loss to Benevento. “He is a number 10 used to playing behind the striker or as a winger, with the tendency to cut inside. “I sent him a happy birthday message this week.  “There are negotiations in progress. It’s going to take a very long time, but we aren’t desperate or anything. “If it doesn’t work out, we’ll still be a strong team and might go for a different target.” Napoli have also been linked with Mauro Icardi, who has been told he can leave Inter, but Ancelotti indicated he is satisfied with options in attack that include Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens. “As for the striker, a modern centre-forward can’t just be a finisher now, which is why Arkadiusz Milik is very important for us,” the Italian said. Napoli finished a distant second to Juventus is Serie A last season, falling 11 point short of the champions.  But the club did earn second spot in the table and have Champions League football to look forward to again next season.  A tough draw saw the Italian club bounced at the group stage last term, when they finished third in Group C behind Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.  Napoli were then dropped into the knockout stages of the Europa League, only to lose out to Arsenal in the quarter-finals.last_img read more

first_imgWhen your father is a professional footballer, you quickly get used to moving from one place to the next and having to make new friends time and time again.  It was no different for Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara. The Spain international was born in Italy while his father Mazinho played for Lecce, before his dad returned to Brazil at Palmeiras, and then moved to Spain for spells with Valencia and Celta Vigo.  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 then quite convenient to have a little brother to keep you company regardless of the city you find yourself living in.  “I have a collection of great memories from my childhood because I was with my brother all the time,” Thiago told Goal. “We are very close and the difference in age was less than two years. He was my shadow and it was awesome.  “We had different great moments, playing in all the cities where my dad played after the games, at school playing with friends.” It was in Vigo that Thiago took playing football with friends to the next level. The 28-year-old was one of the standout performers in the ED Val Minor Nigran team that that saw off several of Spain’s biggest clubs. His performances did not go unnoticed elsewhere and he eventually ended up joining Barcelona at the tender age of 14, snubbing Real Madrid in the process. “I was playing in a team in my hometown of Vigo. My mom didn’t allow me to play on my dad’s former team because my dad had some issues when he was a player. My mom didn’t allow me or my brother to go there,” Thiago added. “So we played in a team and my friends from school were there. We had a great season. We beat Real Madrid. We beat Celta. We beat Deportivo. We beat all the teams in Spain.  “One game when we played Barcelona, after the game, my dad said, ‘Thiago, I didn’t want to tell you before but they want you to be part of Barcelona next year. So what do you think?’  “At that moment, you get shocked because Barcelona was a great team. Also at that time, he told me about Madrid and other great clubs. But my decision was very precise.” Gai AssulinHis move to Barcelona saw him team up with some of the best players around in his age category, but there was one youngster in particular that stood out. “At that time, it was a guy from Israel who impressed me the most, Gai Assulin,” Thiago continued. “He was my age and he was one step quicker than me, all the time. He reached the second team but then he didn’t reach the first team, and he was not consistent in the first division. At the end, he was playing in the second and third division in Spain.  “But he was the biggest talent that I saw at La Masia.” After impressing at Barcelona’s famed academy, Thiago eventually made the step up to the first team and he loved learning from his more experienced team-mates. “As a professional, I’m not a guy who could get impressed with players, but I have a lot of respect for them,” the midfielder went on. “The amount of respect at that moment was, ‘Wow!’ You are excited to play against them, to learn with them, to fight with them. This is very exciting.  “But I always look at their behaviour, how they are on the field, how they are in the locker room. For me, that was more important. I have respect for a guy because of how he is, not because he’s a football player.” The Spain international made his official first-team debut at Barcelona in 2009 at the tender age of 18, but he eventually opted to leave Camp Nou for Bayern Munich in 2013 in search of greater first-team opportunities. He has since gone on to make close to 200 appearances in all competitions, winning six Bundesliga titles and two DFB Pokals in the process.  With players such as Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben having left the club, Thiago is now one of the more experienced heads at Bayern and he is looking forward to taking on the extra responsibility that comes with it. “The players we have now have to take this role. Before, those legends were there. Very young people are coming, people with experience but also who are younger than us,” the former Barcelona midfielder went on.  “We have to lead them in some way and, also, learn from them. It will be a great mix and we are very excited about it.”  Both Robben and Ribery completed a full decade at Bayern, but Thiago does not know just yet whether he could achieve the same. “I’m just trying to enjoy this job, this passion that I have, to leave with this feeling every morning when I wake up,” he concluded.  “You have to keep going that way. In three years, you never know. I don’t want to make plans. I hate plans. Let’s live today and live tomorrow.”last_img read more

Zidane: Doctor advised Bale not to travel

October 26, 2019 | aazfmwrl | No Comments

first_imgGareth Bale did not travel for Real Madrid’s participation in the Audi Cup on doctor’s advice, according to head coach Zinedine Zidane.Madrid suffered their third defeat in four winless pre-season outings at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, with Harry Kane giving Tottenham a 1-0 triumph that would have been far more comfortable but for the heroics of goalkeeper Keylor Navas.Bale is not part of the squad taking part in the exhibition tournament but looks increasingly likely to remain under Zidane’s charge after a prospective move to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning collapsed over the weekend.

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? “Bale did not travel as he was not feeling good,” the Madrid head coach told reporters afterwards.”Speaking with the doctors it was better to stay in Madrid and train there. That’s it. It’s a decision taken together, speaking with him. That’s it.”Bale was on target in the 2-2 draw against Arsenal that remains Los Blancos’ only positive result in their preparations for the 2019-20 campaign – though he missed his spot-kick in the 3-2 penalty shoot-out victory that followed.Zidane was also unwilling to offer any clarity on James Rodriguez’s future – another player apparently surplus to requirements under the Frenchman – but is unperturbed by the poor form of those who are part of his plans.”I always think positively,” he said. “I know it is difficult, we are coming off a tough season and Madridistas might not think it but we have a great team.”We are not ready yet but we will pick up confidence and play and come out of this. We just need to win a game.”Navas’ performance was one of few highlights for Madrid as he made a string of excellent saves either side of Kane’s goal in the first half.Thibaut Courtois suffered a sprained ankle as he shipped five first-half goals in the 7-3 loss to Atletico Madrid in New Jersey.The Belgium international’s previously expressed certainty that it was “clear” who the Madrid number one would be this term no longer looks so well placed.”Keylor played a great game, that’s it,” Zidane added. “What Thibaut said [about being number one] we’d have to see.”There are no automatic starters here. We’re all in the same team, and all must be prepared.”last_img read more

first_img Sneha Saha New DelhiMay 6, 2019UPDATED: May 7, 2019 17:17 IST HIGHLIGHTSXiaomi Mi A3, Mi A3 Lite launching soon.Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite will have “bamboo_sprout” and “cosmos_sprout” codenames respectively.Both the Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite are expected to be powered by Snapdragon 700 series chipset.Couple of weeks ago Xiaomi India Managing Director and Global VP Manu Jain confirmed that a new Mi smartphone with a new Snapdragon 700 series chipset is coming to India soon. We at India Today Tech believe that it could be the Mi A3 – that will succeed the last year’s Mi A2. Xiaomi India is yet to confirm the name of the phone though. Now some more details about the upcoming Mi A3, Mi A3 Lite have leaked. According to a new leak coming from folks at XDA Developers the Mi A3 and Mi A3 Lite will have “bamboo_sprout” and “cosmos_sprout” codenames respectively.The report reveals that Xiaomi is currently working on three smartphones that are expected to launch very soon. The first one is said to be bamboo_sprout (Mi A3), second is cosmos_sprout (Mi A3 Lite), and the third will be a phone with codename “pyxis” (Mi 9X). All these three upcoming Xiaomi phones are expected to come with Snapdragon 700 series chipset and almost the same specs.Weeks ago Jain’s tweet hinted that the Mi A3 may be powered by Snapdragon 730 chipset. However, the new report suggests that the Mi A3 series may actually sport either Snapdragon 710 like the Realme 3 Pro or Snapdragon 712. As of now, there’s no confirmation on which of the three chipsets will we see powering the Mi A3 series.To recall, the Mi A2 and the Mi A2 Lite is powered by Snapdragon 660 and Snapdragon 625 chipset, respectively. This suggests that the Mi A3 series that’s coming very soon will be much powerful compared to the predecessor. On the software front the Mi A3 and the Mi A3 Lite are tipped to run stock version of Android 9 Pie OS. The Mi A3 series of phones are expected to come with 32MP selfie camera, in-screen fingerprint sensor, among other things.advertisementAlongside the Mi A3 series, Xiaomi is said to be working on another phone under its Mi branding. It could be the successor to the Mi 6X. Reports suggest the Mi 6X successor may launch as Mi 9X. It is said that the Mi 9X will also come with the same specs as the Mi A3 series. But the Mi 9X, unlike the Mi A3, will feature MIUI skin over the Android 9 Pie OS.As Jain hinted the Mi A3 is coming to India soon, possibly in the months to come.ALSO READ | Asus teases OnePlus 7 Pro rival for May 16 launch, ZenFone 6 to get no-notch displayALSO READ | Realme X spotted in YouTube video ahead of May 15 launchALSO READ | Redmi Y3 review: Great selfies and long battery lifeGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

first_img India Today Web Desk CardiffJune 8, 2019UPDATED: June 8, 2019 17:43 IST England’s Jason Roy smashed his 9th ODI hundred vs Bangladesh at World Cup 2019. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSEngland opener Jason Roy smashed 92-ball 100 against Bangladesh at World Cup 2019Jason Roy crashed into umpire Joel Wilson after hitting his hundredHosts England have won one and lost one match at World Cup 2019Jason Roy overcame the disappointing performance against Pakistan five days ago and was back among the runs as he smashed his ninth one-day international hundred in Cardiff on Saturday.Roy’s rapid century laid a solid platform for England as they look to get back to winning ways in their third match of the World Cup 2019 against Bangladesh.But there was a comedy of errors as Roy reached his hundred.Roy was facing Mustafizur Rahman in the 27th over and on the fifth delivery, he pulled a short ball to the deep square leg fence and set off for a single but a misfield allowed him get to the landmark in 92 deliveries.Roy was so busy looking at the fielder that he didn’t see umpire Joel Wilson at the other end and crashed into him, knocking the umpire down flat on the ground.Roy went past former captain Graham Gooch on the list of most hundreds in ODIs for England with his 9th century. He is now joint fourth on the list with Kevin Pietersen and Jos Buttler. Joe Root (15), Marcus Trescothick (12) and Eoin Morgan (11) lead the list.Roy is the fifth fastest batsman in the world to score 9 ODI hundreds in his 77th innings behind Hashim Amla (52), Quinton de Kock (53), Babar Azam (61) and Shikhar Dhawan (72). This is the third hundred by an England batsman in this tournament which is the most in any World Cup.Root and Buttler had scored hundreds in the last match against Pakistan but still ended up on the losing side. Root was the first batsman to reach triple figures in World Cup 2019 and went on to score 107 while Buttler made 103 but England still fell short of the 349-run target by 14 runs.advertisementRoy had flopped in that game scoring just 8 runs while he also had a horrible time in the field, having dropped a catch and even misfielded on a few occasions.But he more than made up for his poor show against Pakistan by scoring freely in this game. He had put on a 128-run opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow and carried on dominating the bowling attack after his opening partner departed for 51.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Pressure on England as Bangladesh seeks another CWC upsetAlso Read | World Cup 2019: The middle order needs to take more responsibility, says KarunaratneAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_img Next Italian GP: Charles Leclerc puts Ferrari on pole at Monza amid last lap farceLewis Hamilton joined pole sitter Charles Leclerc on the front row for Mercedes, with Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas third and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel fourth.advertisement Reuters MonzaSeptember 8, 2019UPDATED: September 8, 2019 09:20 IST The pole was Charles Leclerc’s fourth of the season and second in a row (Reuters Photo)Charles Leclerc put Ferrari on pole position for their home Italian Formula One Grand Prix on Saturday in a qualifying session that ended in farce and with drivers under investigation.Five times world champion Lewis Hamilton joined the 21-year-old Monegasque on the front row for Mercedes, with Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas third and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel fourth.The last lap saw nine drivers cruising around, weaving and braking but with nobody willing to take the lead, and only McLaren’s Carlos Sainz making it to the line in time for a final fast lap.”That was worse than a junior formula,” a fuming Toto Wolff, team principal of world champions Mercedes, told Sky Sports television.”The problem was everyone wants a slipstream and nobody wants to go first…. and then everyone looks like idiots.”Stewards said in a note on the timing screens that the last lap was under investigation.Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen, the other driver through to the final phase of qualifying and last year’s pole sitter for Ferrari, had earlier crashed at Parabolica – halting the session for 11 minutes.When the session re-started, with Leclerc on provisional pole after setting the pace before the red flag, there were minutes of inaction.That was followed by a sudden flurry, with cars streaming out of the pitlane and jostling for position in a closely-grouped pack.The irony of the slowest of qualifying laps at the fastest of tracks, a circuit where slipstreaming can be a huge benefit to lap time, was not lost on Hamilton who has taken more poles than any driver in history.advertisement”It’s interesting. Get pole position on the first run and then just time everyone out,” said Hamilton, seemingly pointing the finger of blame at Ferrari, whose army of fans were celebrating anyway.The pole was Leclerc’s fourth of the season and second in a row. The Monegasque will be chasing his second successive victory on Sunday after winning for the first time in Belgium last weekend.”I’m happy with pole but it’s a shame at the end it was a big mess and I hoped our last lap was enough,” said the youngster.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_imgIn T20s, pressure is on batsmen as people come for entertainment: SA spinner Tabraiz ShamsiTabraiz Shamsi had decent figures of 1/19 in three overs during the second T20 International in Mohali and is now looking forward to drawing the series level at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.advertisement Press Trust of India New DelhiSeptember 20, 2019UPDATED: September 20, 2019 13:06 IST South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi in action during second T20 against India (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSTabraiz Shamsi had decent figures of 1/19 in three overs during the second T20 International in MohaliThe third and final T20 is scheduled to be held on SundayShamsi idolised Australia’s chinaman practitioner Brad Hogg while growing up.South Africa’s left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi feels that T20 is a batsmen’s format in which bowlers like him are there to “spoil the party”, which the fans come for.The 29-year-old had decent figures of 1/19 in three overs during the second T20 International in Mohali and is now looking forward to drawing the series level at the Chinnaswamy Stadium which used to be his “home ground” a couple of seasons back. Shamsi used to play for the local IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore.”I feel it puts all the more pressure on the batsman to go out there and do what people want to see. So as bowlers, we are just there to spoil the party and make sure that we execute our plans well,” Shamsi, who has played 17 ODIs and 15 T20 Internationals for the Proteas, told PTI in an interview.The third and final T20 is scheduled to be held here on Sunday.”Chinnaswamy is a small stadium and I mean it’s a T20 series, so people obviously are coming there to see batsmen hit fours and sixes. They are not there to see you bowl a maiden over and that’s what it’s all about,” he said.Shamsi’s stint at RCB has helped him grow as a cricketer with the likes of Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle providing him useful tips.”Definitely, it helps when you are around speaking to world-class players like Virat, Gayle and Shane Watson. The world of cricket is shrinking in the sense that everyone is ready to share knowledge,” he said.advertisement”You will find senior South African fast bowlers imparting knowledge to Indian fast bowlers and vice-versa. Being familiar with surroundings while playing for RCB will certainly help,” feels Shamsi.South Africa, for a number of years, had Imran Tahir as their premier wrist spinner and Shamsi looks at it as a challenge rather than responsibility to rise to the occasion.”I don’t see this as an additional responsibility. When Immy (Tahir’s nickname) was there in the team, my job was to do what’s best for the team and obviously with him not being there, I am the only wrist spinner in the team.”But I have not shied away from challenges and India is another one of those,” said the burly spinner.The wrist-spinners’ club is a small one and there remains a tendency to seek each other out while explaining notes on the tough art.”Being a leg-spinner myself, I know guys tend to help each other out as it’s a small club and we know how tough our art is. I found spending a lot of time with Tahir but I have found all the leg-spinners in the other teams easy-going.”He idolised Australia’s chinaman practitioner Brad Hogg while growing up.”Hogg, I used to watch his bowling a lot during my growing up years. He was the only left-arm wrist spinner playing the game then.”But if you see knowledge is everywhere and you just have to be open-minded and to be able to pick things that works for you and leave things that don’t work for you.”A lesser-known fact about Shamsi is his love for magic tricks, which he developed from his school days.”I always like making people laugh and that’s what I try to bring onto the field as well,” said Shamsi.”When we became professionals, there is a lot of pressure with people scrutinising everything but I don’t ever want to forget that why I started playing the game,” he added.”I started because I loved it. My celebrations are a part of me and playing cricket doesn’t just become a job. Couple of guys have seen but then a magician never gives away his tricks,” he wants the mystery to remain.Also Read | He will be on his toes to hold on to No. 4 slot: Sourav Ganguly on KL Rahul’s strugglesAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
