“So far up his own a***” – World Cup winner says…

first_imgBy reminding everyone that he’s managed to get out of the competition’s group stages 14 times in 16 years, and that the only time he wasn’t in the competition, he won the Europa League, the Manchester United manager tickled a few people the wrong way, including Christophe Dugarry.Now a presenter on RMC Sport, the 1998 World Cup winner lost his cool on air after hearing what Mourinho had to say, and it wasn’t pretty.Relayed by Le10 Sport, he said: “It’s unbearable. He’s wrecked the club. When you see them play on Tuesday, it’s catastrophic, it’s awful, when we all remember Manchester with Roy Keane, Beckham… all the great players, they played offensive football. It was beautiful and passionate.Embed from Getty Images“Old Trafford was the Theatre of Dreams, now it’s the Theatre of Nightmares with this guy. It’s crazy. What he doesn’t understand is that we don’t give a sh** about his titles, we just want emotion and to watch good football, which he’s incapable of giving us, but he won’t realise that because he’s so far up his own a***. We don’t care at all about what you’ve won, mate.”Drawing 0-0 to Crystal Palace at the weekend, Manchester United are currently seventh in the Premier League, picking up just 21 points from their first 13 games, having already lost four and “boasting” a goal difference of -1.The Red Devils are now preparing to face 18th placed Southampton at St Mary’s this weekend, which could be a rather important game for both teams involved, as José Mourinho’s men are currently seven points off the top four while a win for Mark Hughes’ side could see them escape the relegation zone.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

“Stubborn” Caps Need to Look in the Mirror

first_img“I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways..” – Michael JacksonThrough two games of their opening round Stanley Cup Playoff series, which is now tied 1-1 after Saturday’s 4-3 double overtime loss, the Washington Capitals have not resembled the team that had the best record in the NHL this season.They’ve turned way too many pucks over in all areas of the ice, especially in the neutral zone and their own end. They’ve also overpassed on too many occasions taking themselves out of quality shooting and scoring opportunities in the offensive zone. Proof of this is the giveaway stats from game two: 28 for Washington and just 17 for Toronto.They were crushed on faceoffs, 61-39, in game two, which was a reason why they “chased the game” as Coach Barry Trotz described how his team was playing.On the other side, Coach Mike Babcock was incredibly confident in his post game presser following Kasperi Kapanen’s winning tally after 91 minutes and 53 seconds of hockey. Babcock, who had to go with five defensemen when Roman Polak was injured late in period two, was masterful in working tentative zebras Tim Peel and Eric Furlatt for extra time on a couple of OT icings with a shortened bench. He also said his team will get better and better as the series goes on. He noted that he gets the matchup choices now with games three and four in the Big Smoke.Babcock sure isn’t intimidated or impressed with the Capitals.Why should he be?Sure, the Caps have a nice collection of talented players that look daunting on paper. You can go up and down the lineup and rattle off their high draft positions and individual accomplishments. But hockey isn’t about throwing your resume on the ice to decide who wins, especially in the playoffs. It’s all about playing hard and smart, winning the one on one battles.That’s what forward Zach Hyman of the Leafs, a fifth round draft choice by the Florida Panthers, did in game two. To me, #11 is the perfect example of why Toronto is having no problems hanging with the Presidents’ Trophy winners, he’s constantly winning board battles and wearing out a Capitals defense that is supposed to be the difference maker in this series. So far the Caps have been atrocious in their own end and the primary reasons have been a lack of focus and effort. On the Leafs second goal on Saturday, two Washington forwards were in the slot with all of their weight on their front skate ready to rush up the ice instead of being focused on covering the Toronto players. That left Kapanen all alone to notch his first tally of the playoffs.At even strength, Washington has only three goals in this series. One came as a result of a great forecheck (Tom Wilson’s game 1 OT winner), one was after back to back shifts where they wore out the Leafs and prevented them from changing (Nicklas Backstrom’s game tying tally that all started with Lars Eller winning a couple of board battles), and the other was a rebound marker by Justin Williams on the rush.So that’s one rush goal in two games, yet that’s the style the Capitals have found themselves in too often in this series. That’s a reason why they went eight minutes without a shot on goal in period two in game one. Bad hockey!When they’ve played smart and gotten the puck deep in Toronto’s end, they’ve had more success. They just haven’t done enough of that as Brooks Orpik told me after game two.“I think sometimes we get a little narrow playing a rush game and I think our strength is when we get to their zone and start wearing teams down. That’s usually when we have our most success. They do a good job in the neutral zone and we know they are well coached. Sometimes it’s not a pretty game. It’s just simple and you have to take what they give you. You can’t be stubborn in that aspect,” said the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion.Hammer meet nail head!Orpik doesn’t talk to the media a lot and he’s a man of few words. So when he talks, everybody better listen up.Stubborn. Unfocused. Fancy. Lazy. Soft.All of those words could be used to describe the Capitals in the first two games.Williams talked about “getting kicked in the teeth” when they lost to the Penguins last May. Right now that shoe is pretty close to the Capitals mouth.So on Sunday and Monday when the coaches get them together to watch video, they will see a lot of what they’re doing wrong. Turnovers, over passing, losing board battles, and a lack of focus.  They’ll also see things they are doing correctly, like the shifts that led to the game tying goal. What they’ll see on that Backstrom goal was no fancy plays or passes, just hard work, focus, and a willingness to do the right things to generate quality scoring chances. The tally was simple hockey, a shot towards the cage that found its way to a player going to the net. It’s not rocket science.So the Caps coaches and leaders need to stress the “play simple” message. They must play a smart game in all zones, go up and down the ice in a structured unit of five, and most importantly become Zach Hyman-like and take over the individual battles.So it’s probably a good idea for each Cap to don their “Will over Skill” shirt on the flight to Toronto and ingrain it in their respective brains, because that’s the only way they’ll win this series.Don’t be stubborn.Play simple, hard, and smart! “…take a look at yourself and make that change.”last_img read more

Chelsea To Ban Supporters Guilty Of Anti-Semitic Behaviour During Heavy Watford Defeat

first_imgPremier League champions Chelsea have revealed that club supporters who used anti-semitic language/behaviour during the Blues’ disappointing 4-1 defeat at Watford will be punished.A report on a Jewish website revealed that one fan was left “disgusted” by chanting from fellow Blues supporters and had no choice but to report the incident to stewards at the ground.The club’s position was made known via a statement which said: “Anti-Semitism has no place in our club, football or wider society.”The club have already started an investigation in co-operation with Watford and the police in a bid to get to the root of the matter.The statement added: “Anyone found guilty of anti-Semitic language or behaviour will face action from the club, including bans, and will be asked to attend equality education courses.“We welcome the fact that Chelsea fans have reported this behaviour, which shames our club.” the statement stated further.Chelsea had earlier launched a ‘Say No to Anti-Semitism’ campaign thus making the stance they have taken on the latest development unsurprising.RelatedChelsea Ban four Supporters for Racially Abusing Raheem SterlingDecember 10, 2018In “England”Chelsea Ban Manchester United Fans After Stamford Bridge DefeatFebruary 19, 2020In “England”Rio Ferdinand Wants Colin Kaepernick Style Protest in the Premier LeagueDecember 9, 2018In “England”last_img read more

first_imgEX-FORMULA 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has become a dad for the fourth time aged 89.His wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, gave birth to baby boy Ace in just a 25 minute labour today.Bernie Ecclestone has become a dad for the fourth time aged 89 after wife Fabiana gave birth to a baby boyCredit: Getty – ContributorThe billionaire confirmed the arrival of Ace earlier todayCredit: fabianaecclestone/InstagramGrandfather-of-five Ecclestone, who turns 90 in October, confirmed the news to Blick, saying: “We have a son named Ace. I am so proud.Brazilian Fabiana added: “It was all so easy. The birth was over after 25 minutes. I thank god.”The pair have been self-isolating at their home in Switzerland.The baby boy is the billionaire businessman’s first son after having three daughters with his previous partners.His eldest, Deborah, 65, was born to his first wife Ivy Bamford before he had socialites Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31, with his second wife Slavica Radic.He married marketing director Flosi in 2012 – three years after he divorced Croatian model Ms Radic.The couple met through the World Motor Sport Council in around 2009.Bernie with his daughters Petra and Tamara EcclestoneCredit: Getty – ContributorBernie Ecclestone will turn 90 in OctoberCredit: PA:Press AssociationEarlier this summer, Fabiana said: “Like all parents we have only one wish: the child must be born healthy.“Hopefully he will never express any interest in doing something in Formula 1!” The eccentric business mogul has amassed an estimated fortune of £2.5billion from his involvement in Formula 1.Eccelstone was born the son of a fisherman in Suffolk in 1930 and after WWII got his first job at a gasworks testing gas purity.His first involvement in motorsport was trading spare parts for motorcycles before he branched into car racing in 1949, driving Formula 3 series cars.Following an accident he withdrew from racing cars himself.After making successful investments in property he returned to motorsport in a management role making his first entry into Formula 1.He was involved in team ownership until 1978 when he formed the Constructors Association in 1974 and became its chief executive four years later.Ecclestone has been embroiled in a race row after comments he made during a shocking TV interview over recent days.Ecclestone claimed “black people are more racist than white people” and said he was “surprised” Lewis Hamilton had been upset after being taunted by fans in blackface.But the billionaire has defended the remarks – insisting he doesn’t care if someone is “yellow, green, brown or pink”.Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, Ecclestone said: “‘I am not anti black people. Quite the opposite. I have always been very much in favour. In fact, Lewis’s dad wanted to go into business with me.“He made some nice rowing machines. I would never even have considered it if I had been anti-black. If the project had been right, I would have done it.“It’s not my fault I am white, or that I am a little shorter than the next man. I was called Titch at school. I realised I had to do something about it. Black people should look after themselves.“When I lost my driving licence, I had a black driver, not because he was black, but because I didn’t care whether he was black or white. Now it’s suddenly fashionable to talk about diversity.”Bernie Ecclestone says Black people are often ‘more racist than White people’ in shocking TV interview Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night.

Capitals waive Smith-Pelly

first_imgThe 26-year old winger has previously played for the Devils, Canadiens, and Ducks before being claimed by the Caps last year. While his talent and age were called into question, Smith-Pelly was a cornerstone of the team. The decline in his statistical performance meant his contribution was called into question. The Capitals may not want someone who hasn’t developed in a year as they go for a repeat. While Smith-Pelly did make some miracle plays last year, none of that has shown yet this year. The Capitals may have a major trade in mind to relinquish a player of his known talent. Only time will tell if this plays out, though. So where does the 26-year old from Scarborough go now? As a veteran with playoff experience, there is a demand for him, even if his play wasn’t quite up to par. The Maple Leafs are reported to already be in talks with Smith-Pelly and are the hands-on favorite to claim him. Perhaps Calgary could even add some depth to their roster as they make the final push. But wherever he lands, D.C. will never forget his role in their Stanley Cup push last season. His place in local history has already been cemented. Please follow and like us: Devante Smith-Pelly came in last year and proved his abilities when they mattered most. He was perhaps the unsung hero of the Stanley Cup playoffs, scoring seven goals, including one in Game Five of the Finals tying the game and eventually leading to the Cup win. Many early reports believed Dimitrij Jaksin would be waived instead to make room on the salary cap. But Smith-Pelly’s call instead seemed to herald something greater, a different move being taken within the Caps organization. center_img In a surprising move today, the Washington Capitals decided to waive Devante Smith-Pelly after signing him to a one-year deal last offseason. The move was surprising, especially as Smith-Pelly had been looking to stay for some time.last_img read more
