16 days agoJuventus goalkeeper Buffon delighted he chose to return

first_imgJuventus goalkeeper Buffon delighted he chose to returnby Carlos Volcano16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJuventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has no plans of retiring just yet.Now 41, Buffon returned to Juve from PSG last summer.He said, “Quite rightly, a few people at the start were confused by accepting this new role, but I realised the only club where I could accept being second choice was Juventus. I waited and I was proved right.“I am glad to be back in the dressing room with my teammates, embracing the fans and directors again, lads who I experienced so much with both on and off the field. That was why I made this choice.”Buffon is targeting another Scudetto with new coach Maurizio Sarri.“Sarri has very clear ideas and that is because he’s been working in football for 30 years, so in that time he experienced and learned so much, from success and failure. He’s certain of what he’s saying and that passes on to the players.“The group is also ready to learn something new after this philosophy Juve have had for 10 years. Everyone talks about Max Allegri, but don’t forget we had Antonio Conte there first.“This new philosophy is something we’ve never dealt with before. We like it. Great players need great motivation and the performances will arrive.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgMerson: Why Man City will not win the Champions League with this squadby Paul Vegasa day agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal hero Paul Merson says Manchester City will not win the Champions League with two midfielders playing in defence.Ciy bosss Pep Guardiola has been deploying Rodri and Fernandinho at centre-back due to his current injury crisis at the back. Aymeric Laporte is out with a cruciate ligament injury and not expected back until next year. Merson told Sky Sports: “City are a very good team, but they are not going to win the Champions League, playing against the best teams in Europe, with two holding midfielders in defence.”They need Aymeric Laporte back. I thought Juventus would be one of the dangers, but I watched them the other night and they are not going to win it.”I still think Liverpool are the team to beat. They lost in the final two seasons ago and then won it last season. Who’s got better form than that?” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Mens soccer moves up in conference standings with victory over Penn State

It was a game the Ohio State men’s soccer team had to have to keep their hopes of a conference championship alive, and it was a game they got by defeating No. 24 Penn State, 2-1, on Sunday. “We’ve kept our hopes alive,” coach John Bluem said. “There are a whole bunch of teams in the running now for it but we’re real happy for the guys. That was a great win for us.”Under sunny skies at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, the Buckeyes came out playing very aggressive and with a sense of urgency. They looked for early scoring opportunities, which finally paid off in the 14th minute of play.The Buckeyes struck when Austin McAnena put one into the left corner of the goal. It was set up by a great outlet pass from Konrad Warzycha, who crossed the ball into the middle of the field and McAnena finished it off by giving the Buckeyes the 1-0 advantage.For McAnena, it was his fourth goal of the year and the freshman seems to be developing into a solid player for the Buckeyes. There have been multiple times this season when McAnena has been on the receiving end of a pass into the middle of the field and several times it has ended with a Buckeyes goal.Early in the second half, the Buckeyes added another goal. This time it was Konrad Warzycha who got his first goal of the season to give the Bucks a 2-0 lead. Sam Scales and McAnena each had an assist on the score. “That was a great goal by Austin to get us off to the good start and then an electric goal by Konrad in the second half really made the difference,” Bluem said.For the Buckeyes, it was McAnena, Warzycha, and Scales who provided the offense for OSU. All three were involved on both goals. Penn State was not done, though, as the Nittany Lions tried to mount a comeback. In the 59th minute of play, Frank Costigliola kicked one from deep that somehow went into the net and cut the Buckeye lead to 2-1. Penn State turned up the heat once they scored and had several good chances to tie the game but OSU found a way to hold them off and get the conference win. The Buckeyes (8-3-3, 2-1 Big Ten) continue to keep pace with the top teams in the conference. OSU will return to action on Wednesday for its last home game of the regular season. It will also be the Bucks’ last non-conference game of the season, as they face West Virginia at 5:30 p.m. read more

Cech warns Arsenal they need to win all of the remaining

first_imgArsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has warned his team they must win all of the remaining fixtures in the Premier League if they do want to be among the top five teams in England.The Gunners recently lost their fifth successive defeat away – a string they have not done since December 1984 and are currently in the sixth spot in the Premier League standings, after Chelsea and Tottenham.“We are in a very difficult moment because everybody else has a big advantage,”  Cech shared, according to BT Sport.“In the Europa League, we have a semi-final to play, so we need to make sure we are ready.”Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“It’s not the first time we were 1-0 up away and we didn’t get anything in the game,” Cech discussed, addressing the upset against Newcastle on Sunday.Despite Lacazette’s early goal, the hosts proceeded to even out the result some 15 minutes late and in the 68 minute, it was Matt Richie that scored the final goal for Newcastle.“It’s very difficult to explain why because until last season, we were one of the best teams in terms of the away record. But somehow it has completely reversed this season and we don’t seem to find the answer for it,” Cech went on to add.last_img read more

But honestly I’m happy in England, I’m happy playing in the Premier League.”Newcastle will be facing Irish top-flight side St. Patrick’s Athletic later today in their first pre-season friendly.last_img read more

Now officials are investigating if they will charge the owner with damage. Today, we spoke to Harold Walkin, a 12 year seaman who was instrumental in leading the expedition, where the boat was finally moved off molasses this past Sunday and he explained the vessel is still out at sea, but off the reef after they cut the shaft and tugged it out of the protected site. Walkin said the damage to the area was not too bad in his estimation, but explained a team from DEMA will over the next few days scour the area to see just what has been done to harm the reef, if any. It was two Saturdays ago that the Sea of Love, which had left the Southside Marina got trapped on the treacherous molasses reef… a couple was rescued from the boat which was taking on water. It was said the yacht was bound for the Dominican Republic. Emergency action in Grand Turk due to sea surges Related Items:dema, Harold walkins, molasses reef, mv sea of lovelast_img read more
