Even in the first-half, they had a small confusion and Jona made a fantastic tackle into the box.”I think all of us are in good form, clean sheet as well.”Very important for David as well. We wanted to make David happy because he was a little bit disappointed the last games.”I had to cope with him after the game, killing my mind, telling me that he wanted a clean sheet and I’m happy for him as well because he got a clean sheet.” last_img read more


Texas Football Staffer Took Shots At Texas A&M And Baylor’s QB Development During NFL Draft

Posted On Oct 27 2019 by

first_imgMike Giglio says how certain Texas schools don't teach enough about football.Texas Staffer Takes Shot At A&M, BaylorAs strange as it sounds, Baylor has been the dominant college football program in Texas over the last few seasons, and Texas A&M is still basking in the glow of its move to the SEC and the exciting Johnny Manziel era in College Station. Texas, meanwhile, is in the middle of a full rebuild under Charlie Strong, who enters his second season in Austin. That isn’t preventing Texas director of player personnel Mike Giglio from taking shots at Baylor and A&M. During today’s final day of the NFL Draft, Giglio used an ESPN clip to promote Strong-product Teddy Bridgewater over an unnamed Manziel, and took a shot at Baylor’s quarterback development after the Jets took Bryce Petty in the fourth round.Sounds like that’s what helped @teddyb_h2o become NFL Rookie of the Year instead of that spread QB taken before him pic.twitter.com/n1UGmGFlRb— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015Not much teaching going on up there huh? @McShay13 said he identified fronts in HS! Come to ATX & learn to be a pro! pic.twitter.com/w7cIuiz2Dw— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015The NFL Draft is a tremendous opportunity for top programs to promote themselves to fans and recruits. For the most part, they don’t do it by putting down rival teams, but Giglio doesn’t seem to have any issue with taking some shots today. [247Sports]last_img read more

Second-string Liverpool ousted by Wolves

Posted On Oct 27 2019 by

first_imgRuben Neves’ superb strike gave Wolves a 2-1 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup third round – making it back-to-back defeats for the Premier League leaders.Jurgen Klopp made nine changes to the XI that lost by the same scoreline to title rivals Manchester City last Thursday and they turned in a lethargic first-half display, trailing at the break to Raul Jimenez’s opener.Divock Origi found a fine equaliser but Portugal midfielder Neves raised the decibel levels significantly at Molineux with a decisive 55th-minute long ranger. 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? One of the players Klopp retained from the City defeat, Croatia centre-back Dejan Lovren, pulled up and had to be replaced in the sixth minute, meaning 16-year-old Dutch defender Ki-Jana Hoever became Liverpool’s youngest player in FA Cup historyIt was a couple of senior men who let their manager down in the 38th minute when Diogo Jota stole possession from James Milner and burst past Fabinho.Jota played in Jimenez, who still had plenty to do but bore down on goal and steered an unerring finish beyond Simon Mignolet.Liverpool pulled level six minutes into the second half when the hitherto anonymous Origi engineered a fraction of space on the edge of the box to smash home left footed.Parity did not last long as Neves found an even better finish by launching a typically dipping and swerving effort from 30 yards.| @rubendsneves_ pic.twitter.com/zecOXYTczM— The Emirates FA Cup (@EmiratesFACup) January 7, 2019Jimenez had the chance to move Wolves closer to round four when he picked Hoever’s pocket but could not adjust his feet after going around Mignolet.The run of spectacular second-half strikes continued as a sumptuous free-kick from Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri hit the inside of the right post and somehow bounced to safety.Klopp then called for the big guns, sending on Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, but Wolves held on.What does it mean? Klopp turns attention back towards biggest challengeManchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted he was not in a position to choose between competitions and named a strong side to demolish Rotherham United 7-0 on Sunday. Klopp, whose squad depth is improved but does not quite match that enjoyed by Guardiola, evidently does not feel the same way and such a result always felt likely after the team-sheets were handed in.Neves adds another stunner to his collectionFormer Porto captain Neves won rave reviews early in the season but has only started one of Wolves’ past three Premier League matches. The 21-year-old was back to his sublime best here, controlling midfield with his exhaustive range of passing before producing another goal to linger in the memory.Listless Sturridge fails to make his caseLiverpool’s front two were notable for operating in not-so-splendid isolation before half-time but Origi at least got himself on the scoresheet in style after the break. Daniel Sturridge, who was England’s first-choice striker at the start of Gareth Southgate’s reign, appears to have accepted his lot as back-up following a string of injuries and the fabulous form of Jurgen Klopp’s forwards. However, he only has six months remaining on his Anfield contract and this was a sorry pitch for an extension.Key Opta Facts:- Wolves earned their first home win against Liverpool in seven attempts (D3 L3), since a 1-0 win in August 1981.- Liverpool have been eliminated from six of their last eight FA Cup ties against fellow Premier League opponents.- Wolves have eliminated Liverpool from the FA Cup five times – Stoke City are the only side they have knocked out of the competition more (6).- Raul Jimenez’s goal was Wolves’ first at home against Liverpool in 398 minutes, since Kenny Miller scored a 90th-minute goal against them in January 2004.- Eight of  Ruben Neves’ nine goals for Wolves in all competitions have been from outside the box, with his other strike coming from the penalty spot.- Liverpool’s Divock Origi scored his second goal in the FA Cup, with the other also coming against Wolves back in January 2017.- Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri has ended on the losing side in all four of his appearances in the FA Cup (three times with Stoke).What’s next?Liverpool will hope for more of the same from Wolves when they travel to Manchester City in seven days’ time, by which point an away victory at Brighton and Hove Albion could again put the Reds seven points clear of the reigning champions. read morelast_img read more


Sancho should snub Man Utd and stay at Dortmund – Rooney

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Reports suggest United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League saw them end their pursuit of Sancho this summer, though interest remains in the 19-year-old.But former Red Devils captain Rooney, who remains the club’s all-time record goalscorer, has warned Sancho of the dangers of returning to the Premier League, instead believing his development will be aided by remaining on the continent.”Dortmund is a great club with great fans, they trust their young players and you can see that in Sancho and the progress he has made in the last 12 months,” he told Bild.”Now Jadon has to ask himself whether he would get the playing time he gets in Dortmund when he moves to England, or would he just sit on the bench?”Playing time is so important for a young player like Jadon, so if he gets the most playing time in Dortmund, he should stay there.”With a move for Sancho off the table, United instead moved for Swansea City winger Daniel James to bolster their attacking ranks as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer oversees his first summer transfer market as manager of the 20-time English champions.Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has followed James through the entrance doors at Old Trafford with reports suggesting Harry Maguire could follow if the club meet Leicester City’s asking price, though this figure seems to be rising every week.Sancho, meanwhile, will be hopeful of combining with Dortmund new boys Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt next season following their arrivals from Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.Lucien Favre has also added Germany international defenders Nico Schulz and Mats Hummels to his squad as he looks to again challenge Bayern Munch for supremacy in Germany.last_img read more

Vicky Kaushal: If Uri was a propaganda film, I wouldn’t have done it

first_img India Today Web Desk New DelhiFebruary 12, 2019UPDATED: February 12, 2019 12:38 IST Vicky Kaushal opens up on ths success of Uri: The Surgical Strike.When Aditya Dhar decided to ‘pay a tribute’ to the Indian Army with his film Uri: The Surgical Strike, little did he know that his film will turn out to be the first blockbuster of 2019. Such has been the josh surrounding the film that within four weeks of its release, the war drama crossed the Rs 200-crore mark.With the film’s success, Vicky Kaushal has become an overnight star. Uri’s response at the box office is a proof that he can shoulder a film.Talking about the overwhelming response, Vicky told a daily, “Just before the film was to release, Aditya [Dhar, director] and I were discussing how the entire team has given their all – physically, mentally and emotionally – to the project. Though we were content with our efforts, we didn’t expect the audience to go bonkers.”Thank You India… ????

Released a few months before the elections, many raised eyebrows calling it government’s mouthpiece.However, Vicky has dismissed the notion saying that film is a tribute to the Indian Armed Forces. “It’s not necessary to view everything through the political lens. Also, if it was a propaganda film, I wouldn’t have been a part of it,” said Vicky.Ever since the film’s release, the catchphrase ‘How’s The Josh?’ has gone viral. From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, everyone is seen mouthing the popular line from the film, only strengthening the belief that the movie is championed by the government.advertisement”Once a film releases, it belongs to the audience – be it the cabinet ministers or the Prime Minister or even sports personalities. So if you have the right to say ‘How’s the josh?’, the same right lies with anybody else. We have zero control over it. We are happy that the emotional value of the film is resonating with everyone,” added Vicky.ALSO SEE: Vicky Kaushal looks unrecognisable in this throwback photo from audition daysALSO WATCH: Vicky Kaushal talks about his cinematic journey at Mind Rocks Bhopal 2017Get 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?

It has not only been spied testing on several occasions, but Tata Motors has itself released a few teasers of the upcoming premium hatchback providing details about it. The company has now come out with a fresh video giving specifics about the new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) Architecture, the platform on which Tata Altroz will be engineered.With lightweight, modular and flexible characteristics, the ALFA architecture has the ability to evolve into a range of modern and youthful vehicles within a short development cycle, the company claims. The new platform will make Tata Altroz capable of handling hybridisation and electrification and support multiple powertrains in it, according to the firm.The ALFA Architecture gives Altroz class leading luggage space, a flat floor to maximise leg space and ensures that there is intelligent use of technology for absolute safety, according to Tata Motors.First showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 as the 45X Concept, the hatchback was officially named as Altroz after a seabird known as Albatross, on February 25 by Tata Motors. It will be commercially launched in mid-2019. Upon its introduction in India, the car will challenge the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and Honda Jazz.Tata Altroz will be the second vehicle from the company after Harrier to sport the Impact 2.0 Design Language. It is expected to get a bold look upfront and the company might take a cue from the recently launched SUV while designing the headlamps. A sporty grille is expected to add to the overall styling. The tail lamps might also be Harrier-inspired. Plush seat upholstery, along with floating touchscreen infotainment system and premium multi information display, is expected to add to the luxury quotient of the hatchback.advertisementThe rear door handle on Tata Altroz is expected to be located on the C-pillar, similar to its positioning on Maruti Suzuki Swift. The hatchback will also have a rising window line.It is being claimed that Tata Altroz might feature the engines that are available with Nexon. The compact SUV comes in with two powertrains — a 1.2-litre turbocharged revotron petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged revotorq diesel. The revotron mill is good for 110 PS of power and 170 Nm of torque, while the revotorq motor churns out 110 PS of power and 260 Nm of torque. Both the engines are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with an option for a six-speed automatic transmission as well. However, one will have to wait for an official announcement to get clarity about the technical specifications of the upcoming hatchback.Tata Nexon gets safety features like driver and co-driver airbags, ABS with EBD, driver and co-driver seatbelt reminder, ISOFIX child-seat anchorage, park assist with rear sensors, park assist with camera, day and night IRVM, front fog lamps with cornering assistance and rear defogger. These features can be expected in Tata Altroz as well.ALSO READ | Tata Altroz’s side profile revealed in latest teaserALSO READ | Tata Altroz spied ahead of global premier at Geneva Motor ShowALSO READ | FAME II scheme receives Union Cabinet nod, total outlay at Rs 10,000 crore over 3 yrs from 2019-20 to 2021-22Get 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?

IPL 2019: Bhuvneshwar likely to lead SRH against KKR as Williamson remains a doubt

Posted On Oct 25 2019 by

first_imgIPL 2019: Bhuvneshwar likely to lead SRH against KKR as Williamson remains a doubtIPL 2019: Kane Williamson arrived in India on Friday night and is doubtful for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s opener against Kolkata Knight Riders which is why vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar might lead the team on Sunday.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service KolkataMarch 23, 2019UPDATED: March 23, 2019 20:43 IST IPL 2019: Bhuvneshwar is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s vice-captain and is likely to fill in as skipper in Williamson’s absence. (@SunRisers Photo)HIGHLIGHTSTom Moody said SRH will take a call on Kane Williamson on SundaySRH vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead SRH in Williamson’s absenceMoody said David Warner still holds a leadership role at SRHThere were two major developments in the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) camp on Saturday. While captain Kane Williamson is doubtful for their opening game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), opening batsman David Warner skipped training.Commenting on Williamson, coach Tom Moody said: “He arrived with Martin Guptill late yesterday night. They had to attend an awards function with New Zealand cricket. We are assessing Kane today and tomorrow,” Moody told reporters.”It’s not a long term injury. Whether he plays, we will take a call tomorrow. We have got quite a few days before our next home game. If he’s not available, I don’t see any issues from second game onwards. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is our vice-captain,” Moody added.Commenting on Warner’s absence, Moody said the batsman is just resting and there is nothing to worry about. “Warner is available. He is jumping out of his skin to start his campaign.”Williamson picked up a shoulder injury while fielding during the second Test against Bangladesh and was taken to hospital for further scans to determine the seriousness of the injury.The Kiwi duo have arrived at the SunRisers camp. #OrangeArmy let us welcome @Martyguptill and Kane Williamson with warm hearts. #ReturnOfTheRiser pic.twitter.com/KR1aaRwLoXSunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) March 22, 2019In his absence, India pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the side. Williamson had a stellar season with SRH with the bat last season as he amassed 735 runs at an average of 52.50 and an impressive strike rate of 142.44. He bagged the Orange Cap finishing as the highest run-getter of the tournament.advertisementWARNER STILL A LEADER WITHIN SETUP: SRH COACH MOODYHe may not be captain, but David Warner continues to have leadership role at Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), head coach Tom Moody said ahead of their opening tie against Kolkata Knight Riders.”Warner is available. He is jumping out of his skin to start his campaign,” Moody said.”Davey still has a leadership role within the group. In the middle with the bat in hand and around training and out in the middle when it comes to strategising.”Talking about handing over the baton to New Zealand captain Kane Williamson last season after Warner was not allowed to play the IPL due to his role in ball-tampering, Moody said the Kiwi is admired globally and led so well that the team management decided to stick with him.”We felt there was no need to make any change from last year. Kane is admired globally and what he did with us last year, we felt it made sense to continue the continuity,” he said.Tell us if you’ve seen a happier face than Kane Williamson’sWatch here what the Kiwi has to say about the #OrangeArmy on his return! #ReturnOfTheRiser #RiseWithUs pic.twitter.com/UMk5Gku3f6SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) March 23, 2019Moody dropped a hint that Jonny Bairstow could open with Warner as his wicket-keeping gives the team a balance. “Picking Bairstow up in the auction was an important strategy because we wanted an overseas player who could give us the option to keep wickets.”Having an impact player like Bairstow in the similar mold of Jos Buttler gives that option and flexibility to have that keeping role nailed down and have an impact player at the same time.””We are conscious of making sure that we have all the right combinations for any situation. The most important thing we have is the constant communication not only with foreign players, but domestic players as well.”All of them (of the 23) present a strong case to be in the XI tomorrow,” Moody said.Moody also praised the comeback man Wriddhiman Saha who played in the second qualifier despite a broken thumb. “It’s great to see Saha back. It’s a long journey with recovery. He has shown a lot of character and courage. His keeping is second to none — an outstanding glovesman.”Moody also hailed the IPL schedule saying it’s great that the league stage is getting over by May 5, as all the eight franchises will miss out on their top players ahead of the World Cup.”A lot of teams aren’t going to be affected too badly. Maybe when it comes to finals, it might be a different story, but certainly in the main stage of the tournament, most players will be available.”Also Read | Sunrisers Hyderabad like my second family away from home: David WarnerAlso Read | It’s IPL time: Cricket superstars set to rock and roll with an eye on World CupAlso Read | Pre-tournament photo shoot suggests Bhuvneshwar Kumar likely to lead SRHAlso Read | World Cup not on my mind, want to do well for Sunrisers Hyderabad: David WarneradvertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The umpiring howler cost RCB dearly as Mumbai Indians pipped the hosts by six runs at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.Needing six to take the game into Super Over, Lasith Malinga’s final delivery to Shivam Dube was a no-ball that was missed by the on-field umpires as RCB managed 181 for 5 in reply to 187 for 8 by Mumbai Indians.What hurt them more was AB de Villiers, who nearly took his team to victory with an unbeaten 70 off 41 balls would have faced the free-hit. Both umpires C Nandan and ICC Elite Panel’s S Ravi bungled completely leaving Virat Kohli seething in anger.After the end of the match, Kohli was livid, “We are playing at the IPL level and not playing club cricket. The umpires should have had their eyes open. That is a ridiculous call at the last ball. If it is a game of margins, I don’t know what is happening. They should have been more sharp and careful out there.”The winning captain, Rohit Sharma feels that these mistakes are not good for the game. “I just got to know when we crossed the rope. Somebody just told me it was a no-ball. These kind of mistakes are not good for the game of cricket, it’s pretty simple,” he said at the post match presentation.”There’s a TV up there, they have to watch what’s happening. It is as simple as it is. Players can’t do much. The only thing they can do is walk off and shake hands because it was the last ball. It’s disappointing to see that. I hope they rectify their mistakes like we do when we make mistakes,” Rohit added.advertisementSocial media blasted the umpiring error with Michael Vaughan taking to twitter to vent his ire.”In an era of so much technology and with so much at stake NO BALLS should never ever be missed,” Vaughan tweeted.In an era of so much technology and with so much at stake NO BALLS should never ever be missed …. #JustSaying #IPL2019Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) March 28, 2019Aakash Chopra too was not happy with umpires’s mistake, as he called it a ‘colossal error’.”Malinga’s last ball was a no-ball….BIG one.
