first_imgMan Utd defensive pair Shaw and Fosu-Mensah return to trainingby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United defensive pair Luke Shaw and Timothy Fosu-Mensah have returned to training.Shaw has been out since the defeat by Crystal Palace on August 24 with a hamstring injury and Fosu-Mensah has been sidelined with a knee injury for the last five months.United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Shaw would train with the rest of the first-team squad at his pre-match press conference and the 24-year-old is in contention to return to the line-up against Arsenal.”Er… not really!” Solskjaer said when asked if he had any positive team news. “Luke’s back in training today, so let’s see how he is. He’s getting there so let’s see how he reacts the next couple of days. He’s been working really hard, so we hope to see him before the international break.

24 days agoVertonghen denies Tottenham group stagnant

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Vertonghen denies Tottenham group stagnantby Freddie Taylor24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham defender Jan Vertonghen does not believe the club has become stagnant.Some believe that a lack of freshness in the Spurs squad from signings has resulted in players becoming relaxed about their place in the team.It also means that momentum from past seasons has dissipated, resulting in a poor run of form for the North London side.But Vertonghen insists that is not the case.”I don’t agree,” Vertonghen told reporters when asked if Spurs were stagnant. “We improved every year. Last year we went to the Champions League final.”Some new players came in and that keeps it fresh. I don’t see that it’s stale at all. I see plenty of joy in the dressing room. Everyone enjoys playing here.”The mood at this point is good. It was a good win for us on Saturday. If you go down to 10 men and they score to make it 1-1, then we fought and really stuck together.”We wanted to show who we are. If you see after the final whistle how happy we were, that’s how we are.” last_img read more

first_imgAlabama football player at the squat rack.Screen Shot 2015-08-12 at 5.40.52 PMThe Alabama football program has won 15 national championships. The Crimson Tide, obviously, want to get to 16. Nick Saban’s team came close last year, making the College Football Playoff before falling to Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl. Alabama lost a decent amount from its 2014 team, but should still start the season ranked in the top five. Alabama’s path to a championship has started, as the Crimson Tide began practice on Tuesday. With football beginning in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Alabama’s video production staff has released a cool “Hunt For 16” mini hype video.last_img

Who were Man Utd’s Busby Babes?

first_imgThe Busby Babes occupy a special place in the history of Manchester United, not just because of the success they enjoyed, but also the horrific tragedy that afflicted them.Indeed, such was the degree of their impact at the club that Sir Alex Ferguson argued that Matt Busby’s team are the ultimate reference point for any Manchester United manager.AdChoices广告”The Babes are what gives this club such a fantastic romance, in terms of how they played the game and how they generated this thread of youth right throughout the club,” Ferguson told the United Review in 2018. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar 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? “The spirit of the club is created by all these young players, and that began back then. The Babes are where Manchester United’s history starts.”As United prepare to honour the memory of the Busby Babes and what they achieved, Goal takes a look at who they were.Who were the Busby Babes? The term ‘Busby Babes’ is believed to have been coined by Manchester Evening News sub-editor Frank Nicklin who used it in a report of a game between United and Liverpool in 1951.Two youngsters were handed their senior debuts for the Old Trafford club in the game and Nicklin’s phrase caught on as more young players were integrated into the team.Busby had overseen the implementation of a new youth policy at United which came to fruition in the 1950s, with five FA Youth Cup titles and three First Division (now Premier League) crowns secured that decade.With scouts such as Joe Armstrong identifying talented prospects and Jimmy Murphy training them, the club dominated the FA Youth Cup when it was first introduced in 1952, winning the first five editions.A significant number of those players subsequently graduated to the first team under Busby.Bobby Charlton Manchester UnitedAs the name suggests, the defining feature of the teams of that era was their relative youthfulness and the average age of the team that won the 1955-56 First Division was just 22.”It takes a brave person to do that,” Ferguson said of Busby’s novel approach to building a team. “You’re in an industry where it’s all about the results, and that’s why most managers have to rely on their first team to keep them in a job and there’s absolutely no compunction about that; it’s a fact of life.”To build a football club through young people is the braver thing to do, and actually it’s the correct thing to do because once you’ve got a foundation then you can rely on that for a few years.”Bobby Charlton is perhaps the most notable member of the clutch, having gone on to break both appearance and scoring records for the club, as well as helping England to a World Cup triumph in 1966.Others include Duncan Edwards, Bill Foulkes and Denis Viollet, while Wilf McGuinness later replaced Busby as United manager.Below is a list of players who are considered part of the Busby Babes group: Geoff Bent Johnny Berry Jackie Blanchflower Roger Byrne Bobby Charlton Eddie Colman John Doherty Duncan Edwards Bill Foulkes Harry Gregg Mark Jones Wilf McGuinness Kenny Morgans David Pegg Albert Scanlon Tommy Taylor Dennis Viollet Liam Whelan Ray WoodThe parameters of what qualified an individual to be considered part of the Busby Babes group were not particularly strict, but the general idea was that they were young players who matured under Busby’s watch at Old Trafford.Indeed, not all of the players who are grouped among the Busby Babes came through the youth ranks at Manchester United.For example, Harry Gregg was signed from Doncaster Rovers, Ray Wood joined from Darlington, Tommy Taylor signed from Barnsley, Colin Webster was recruited from Cardiff City and Johnny Berry arrived at the club from Birmingham City.Munich air disaster Munich air disaster memorialTragedy struck at the heart of Manchester United in 1958 when the plane carrying the team home from a European Cup tie against Red Star Belgrade crashed.The crash occurred on February 6 in Munich and it claimed the lives of 23 people, with 21 passengers surviving the incident.Of the 23 who died, eight – namely Bent, Byrne, Colman, Edwards, Jones, Pegg, Taylor and Whelan – were United players.Berry and Blanchflower survived the accident, but the extent of their injuries forced them to retire at the ages of 31 and 24 respectively.Busby survived the disaster – having been pulled from the wreckage by Gregg – and returned to management, but, sadly, the all-conquering team that he built was totally devastated.Who was Matt Busby? Pat Crerand Matt Busby George BestBusby, the eponymous father figure of the Busby Babes, is widely regarded as one of Manchester United’s most successful managers.Interestingly, his playing days saw him line out for two of United’s fiercest rivals Manchester City (who he won the FA Cup with in 1934) and Liverpool.The Bellshill native’s career, like that of thousands of others, was disrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 and subsequently came to a close, but he swiftly moved into management.Following the war, in 1945, Busby took the reins at Manchester United and he set about establishing a new base for success. Thus, the Busby Babes were born.The Scottish coach steered United to an FA Cup triumph in 1948 and, four years later, clinched the First Division title, which ended a four-decade wait for success at the summit of English football.Busby’s ‘Babes’ reached maturity in the 1955-56 season, winning the league by 11 points. They retained their crown the following season, finishing eight points ahead of Tottenham at the end of the campaign.Tragedy struck in 1958, but, despite witnessing the devastation of the team he’d built and suffering grievous injuries himself, Busby carried on and restored the club’s glory days.He masterminded two further First Division title wins, an FA Cup win and, in 1968, delivered United’s first-ever European Cup.

Ohio State Beats Michigan For The 5th Year In A Row

first_imgOhio State's players celebrate the big win over Michigan.ABC.The Buckeyes have done it again.Ohio State continues to dominate its rivalry against Michigan. The Buckeyes easily could have lost today’s contest against the Wolverines, but thanks to some timely turnovers by Michigan and some clutch plays in overtime, Urban Meyer’s squad emerged victorious.The game went to overtime – and, then, double overtime – for the first time in the history of the rivalry, where Ohio State got the win, 30-27, and, potentially, secured a spot in the College Football Playoff.Both teams scored touchdowns in the first overtime, but the Wolverines were held to a field goal in double OT. Ohio State won the game on a touchdown by Curtis Samuel.CURTIS SAMUEL TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!! BALL GAME!!!! pic.twitter.com/1EoSKDngRr— Ohio State Football (@OhioStateFB) November 26, 2016And Curtis Samuel wins it for the Buckeyes!

If the Spartans can upset the Nittany Lions, the Buckeyes will play in the Big Ten Championship Game vs. Wisconsin. There, they’ll truly control their own College Football Playoff destiny. Many think they’ll still make it even if they don’t play in that game, though.last_img read more

Brazil’s Arthur withdrawn through injury in Copa America warm-up game

first_imgBrazil face a potential wait on the fitness of Arthur after the midfielder was taken off injured against Honduras following a horror tackle.The Barcelona man was substituted off with a sore right knee following a two-footed challenge by Romell Quioto in the 29th minute at Estadio Beira-Rio, for which the latter was shown a straight red card.Head coach Tite took no chances on the injury and Arthur has already begun treatment on the injury, with no exams anticipated for the time being. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar 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? Brazil were already 2-0 ahead at the time of the injury, with goals from Gabriel Jesus and Thiago Silva handing them the advantage, before they went on to add a further five goals against 10-man Honduras.The Selecao are set to begin their Copa America campaign in six days as they look to regain their grasp on South American football having not won the tournament since 2007, with their opening fixture taking place on June 15 against Bolivia.The 22-year-old has become a regular figure in Tite’s midfield over the course of the last season and was making his 10th appearance for his country prior to his withdrawal.Arthur already has a La Liga title to his name having lifted Spain’s top domestic prize with Barcelona, making 44 appearances for the club across all competitions.Brazil are also without their star forward Neymar for the Copa America on home soil after he damaged his right ankle in their previous warm-up game against Qatar.The Paris Saint-Germain winger was taken off after 21 minutes before his side went on to win 2-0 thanks to first-half strikes from Richarlison and Jesus.Neymar is undoubtedly one of the Selecao’s key men, currently sitting third in his country’s all-time goalscoring records with 60 goals in 97 games, bettered only by Pele and Ronaldo.Tite opted to call up Chelsea winger Willian as the replacement for Neymar rather than the Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior.Willian is an experienced player at international level, having won 63 caps and scored eight times since making his debut in November 2011.The Los Blancos youngster, however, is yet to appear for Brazil’s senior team and most recently appeared for their Under-20 side in October 2018.last_img read more

Mexico wins Group A despite Martinique test

first_imgMexico survived a brief scare to complete a perfect group-stage campaign at the CONCACAF Gold Cup by beating Martinique 3-2 on Sunday.Uriel Antuna’s first-half goal had Mexico ahead and in control at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.However, they suddenly found themselves staring at a shock draw when Kevin Parsemain scored a wonderful free-kick for Martinique early in the second half.

Mexico’s winning run continuesDespite being unexpectedly pushed, Mexico extended their winning streak under Martino to seven matches. They go into the knockout stage with some confidence and eyeing an eighth Gold Cup crown.Antuna takes his chanceAntuna was only a late addition to the Mexico squad for the tournament, but he has taken his chance. The LA Galaxy attacker was again lively and added to his hat-trick against Cuba.Martinique making progressMartinique showed they can be competitive at Gold Cup level. They were thrashed 9-0 by Mexico in 1993 and beaten 3-1 six years ago, but were threatening and even caused something of a scare.What’s next?Mexico will face the runners-up of Group B – either Costa Rica or Haiti – in a quarter-final on Saturday, while Martinique look ahead to the CONCACAF Nations League later this year. read morelast_img read more

He joins the network after spending the last year working as an on-air talent and producer for Overtime.Zaire played for Notre Dame from 2013 to 2016, but never quite managing to firmly grab the starting job as a member of the Irish.

He entered the 2015 season as the expected starter, but went down in the second game of the season with a fractured ankle. DeShone Kizer took over the starting role, which he did not give up, even through a QB battle ahead of 2016.Following the 2016 season, Zaire transferred to Florida but struggled with the SEC titan. He went 0-2 as a starter for the Gators, completing 57-percent of his passes with no touchdowns and one interception.Following the 2017 season he tried his hand at going pro.Zaire’s NFL dream was short-lived though. He attended the Jacksonville Jaguars’ rookie minicamp in 2018 but failed to make the cut.Now 24 years old, Zaire will be one of the youngest analysts on the CBS Sports staff.last_img read more

Fields had four touchdowns in less than 10 minutes. The offense kind of stalled after that, though OSU went on to win easily.Michigan, meanwhile, struggled early against Middle Tennessee, though the Wolverines eventually pulled away.Clarett had a message for Harbaugh after watching his Buckeyes play.“Harbaugh isn’t getting a victory against us this year… another year another loss,” he tweeted.Harbaugh isn’t getting a victory against us this year… another year another loss— Maurice Clarett (@ReeseClarett13) August 31, 2019Harbaugh has yet to beat Ohio State since arriving at Michigan.

Tommy Stevens Opens Up About Leaving Penn State

first_img It’s very clear that Tommy Stevens has no hard feelings toward the Nittany Lions, but he didn’t appreciate the hurtful words that he received from some members of the fan base.Here is what Stevens had to say, via 247Sports:“I wasn’t afraid of competition,” Stevens said. “I see the things that people say and fans that think I left because I was scared to compete. … It doesn’t make sense to me. Because if I was scared to compete, why wouldn’t I have left after I lost the job to Trace? Why would I have stayed for all of that time? It did bug me a lot. I’m not going to act like I didn’t see any of that stuff.“Am I upset with how things happened? Yes,” he added. “… I really wanted to be the starting quarterback there. … I wanted the fairy tale ending that I guess a lot of the fans wanted, too. That is what I wanted — I really wanted that to happen. But the longer and longer that it stretched out, it kind of seemed like it wasn’t necessarily what (I) was thinking. … I guess we’ll never know if it would have happened.”Stevens has been battling an upper body injury at Mississippi State, but he’s still thrown for 441 yards and five touchdowns. He’s currently sharing time under center with Garrett Shrader.Penn State is off to a strong start this season as it owns a 3-0 record heading into its bye week.Both parties have fared well since their breakup in the spring.[247Sports] Tommy Stevens escapes a tackler for Mississippi State.NEW ORLEANS, LA – AUGUST 31: Quarterback Tommy Stevens #7 of the Mississippi State Bulldogs escapes a tackle by defensive lineman Kendall Wilkerson #8 of the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns at Mercedes Benz Superdome on August 31, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Michael Chang/Getty Images)Many people thought Tommy Stevens would be the successor to Trace McSorley at Penn State, but it clearly didn’t work out that way. Instead, the senior quarterback transferred to Mississippi State.Since Stevens elected to transfer from Penn State, Sean Clifford and Will Levis battled in camp for the starting quarterback job. Clifford was eventually named starter.Although the Nittany Lions are doing just fine with Clifford at quarterback, Stevens received a decent amount of backlash for his decision to leave Penn State. There were a few remarks being made that he didn’t want to compete for the starting role.Stevens went on former Penn State tight end Adam Breneman’s podcast to discuss his exit from Happy Valley.last_img read more

Sexy, choice, and affordable: Meet Edifier’s E25 Luna Eclipse

first_imgWhen it comes to purchasing a new set of speakers to spiff up your desktop, office or study, it’s hard to find something that looks as good as it sounds (or vice versa) and won’t ransack your wallet. At least it was; then Edifier came along with a highly modern-looking set of speakers that should not only catch some eyes, but bend some ears as well. Meet the Edifier E25 Luna Eclipse.From the moment you pull these gleaming speakers from their cloth sacks, you’re awash in a glossy sheen of modern design. The bulbous shells look vaguely like motorcycle helmets pulled from some Daft Punk/Tron video. Whether you’ve opted for sports car-red, gloss white, or the classic black color scheme, this pair pops. Connection options include a 3.5mm Aux input and Bluetooth for wireless audio.  The speakers come with a connection cable and a remote control, just in case you get tired of playing around with it’s nearly invisible touch-capacitive buttons.As for the sound quality, the Luna are pushed by a total of 74 watts – plenty of power for such a compact  setup – and believe us when we say: these babies pump out a lot of sound for their size. The midrange and treble is lively and rife with detail, spinning clean and clear and digging deep into sonic details. The Luna hold their own pretty well in the low end too, delving into the bass with some respectable authority. And the best part is, you’ll only need to throw down $200 for the pair. At that price, the Luna Eclipse are practically a steal.

This off-grid concept house shares energy with a hybrid companion car

Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project 4. Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project 5. Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project 6. Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project 7. Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy project To make use of the vehicle’s energy (and to have the ability to send power to it), the team designed a wireless charging pad for it to park on top of just outside the 3D-printed home. Whenever the building requires more energy than it has stored, or opts to send its pooled energy to the natural-gas hybrid, the charger quickly transfers the required power. By creating this sort of microgrid, owners of this revolutionary house would likely never have to deal with losses in power or blackouts.What particularly piqued Lee’s interest in creating a 3D-printed home was the sheer amount of energy and materials that 3D printing preserves. Unlike the traditional home building process, which sees a high amount of wasted construction material, 3D printing allowed the team to plan out an exact amount of ABS resin for the build with zero waste. Moreover, the resin has the ability to be recycled and reprinted should a rebuild be required.“It uses material, spits it out, and that’s it,” Lee explains about the build process. “You don’t have to mill it, cut it, and throw what you don’t need away. Whatever you need, you use.”Related: Forget plastic — Glowforge’s 3D laser printer makes objects with wood, fabric, and leatherThough this innovative energy producing home is merely a project designed to study energy usage, it boasts a number of features which make it ripe for real-world use. With so many people choosing to go “off the grid” for various reasons, Lee’s AMIE project figures to see a massive boost in popularity once word spreads of its efficiency and performance.Until that time however, you’ll have to continue making those checks out to your local electrical company.This was originally a post on our brother site, Digital Trends.

Lee, a Harvard graduate and partner at world-renowned architecture firm Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, believes that storing and receiving energy via a grid is far too inefficient; so to fix the problem, he designed a one-of-a-kind 3D-printed home that no only pools its own energy, but also makes use of a companion vehicle if energy levels get too low. The house, which is currently on display at the University of Tennessee, is part of an ongoing project designed to gather information on the way cities consume energy.On the outside, Lee’s 3D-printed home —called the Additive Manufacturing Integrated Energy (AMIE) project— looks incredibly similar to a portable recreational vehicle and less like a full-fledged home. During the design process, the team decided to outfit the structure with high-efficiency insulation, LED lights, and built-in solar panels capable of not only harvesting energy, but also sending power back and forth to the companion car as well. The house itself also uses minimal amounts of energy (even during peak operation), and cedes excess energy to assist in charging the vehicle.“Instead of relying on the grid —which everybody says is a kind of inefficient way to store energy, because of distances— here you have it where you need it,” Lee tells Fast Company.last_img read more
