first_imgLeicester fullback Pereira: Goal thanks to Rodgers adviceby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City fullback Ricardo Pereira heeded the advice of Brendan Rodgers to score his first goal of the Premier League season against Tottenham Hotspur.The Portuguese equalised for the Foxes in their 2-1 comeback win over Spurs at the King Power last Saturday.”Everybody is happy with the win,” said Ricardo to the Leicester Mercury. “After a loss [against Manchester United] it was important, in front of our fans and in our stadium, to win and to get back to a victory.”We were really frustrated about the [United] game and our performance. But we bounced back. We worked hard in the week to do better, and that’s what we did.”Looking to the previous game, the coach talked with me to attack more, to not lose that side of attacking and that’s what I tried to do.”He told me on Friday to not lose that, to keep going and help the team in attack. It was good [to score], I hope he says that every week!” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Taylor Harwood-Bellis proud of Man City debutby Paul Vegas15 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveTaylor Harwood-Bellis is proud to have made his Manchester City debut.It’s been a crazy few months for Harwood-Bellis, after he featured on the pre-season tour before making his debut at Preston in the Carabao Cup.Speaking to ManCity.com, he said: “It’s unreal. To play for the club you’ve always supported, for every football fan out there, that’s what you want to do.“Not just any old team. The one you’ve been at week in, week out. It’s an unbelievable feeling.”“I didn’t expect it. You have to have luck to get there. When I was told I’d be training with those players every day, no-one can describe how that feels.“And then to get told I was playing a game for City, it’s obviously nerve-wracking – but when I got out there, it was just so exciting I really enjoyed it.”“You do get the opportunities and when you do you have to take them.“I got lucky with a few injuries that allowed me to move up from 18s to 23s, but when I got there, I had to take my chance and that creates other pathways.“Play well that one chance you get, and it sets you up for plenty of other things that come with it.” last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool legend Gerrard: Beating Man Utd about winding them upby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Steven Gerrard admits beating Mancheter United is also about winding them up.Speaking to BBC Radio 5Live, Rangers boss Gerrard spoke about his experiences of the fixture and how kissing a TV camera became his trademark celebration when scoring there.He said: “It’s exciting, it’s a fascinating match and it’s the fixture you look for at the start of the season, home and away. It’s the biggest game in Britain and one of the biggest games around the world.”It just happened off the cuff. Of course, the game is always covered by the TV and I just remember sliding on my knees and getting carried away a bit. It’s become a bit of a wind-up to the Mancunians because they gave me so much stick over the years.”It’s just to wind them up a bit, just a bit of banter between us.”That’s what you’ve always got to remember, it’s the three points that are the key although it gets built up by the TV and everything, it’s a tough fixture. Like Merseyside derbies, sometimes form can go out of the window.”Liverpool haven’t won at Old Trafford since their 3-0 win in 2014, a game which Gerrard grabbed a brace.The former Liverpool captain added: “I think Liverpool have been the better team over the last few years but even last season they only managed to get a draw and United were there for the taking.”If Liverpool get that opportunity again, they’ve got to go for it and put their foot on the accelerator. This is a Man United side that isn’t in form and have had their issues as you say.”It won’t be like this forever so you’ve got to strike when you have the chance.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Impact of Almiron’s Newcastle move goes beyond the money

first_imgMajor League Soccer did not make Miguel Almiron. He was already worth an eight-figure transfer fee when he arrived as one of the cornerstones of Atlanta United’s standard-setting arrival in 2017.What the league was able to do for the Paraguayan playmaker, though, is take his already-soaring stock and keep it heading in a direction that eventually saw Almiron break transfer records on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.Almiron’s imminent $27 million transfer to Newcastle United will shatter the record for a transfer fee paid for an MLS player, a record Alphonso Davies held for just two months after his $22 million move to Bayern Munich. Almiron’s move completes a two-year run that saw him dominate the league with his speedy runs, impeccable passing and ability to generate his own chances when he wasn’t setting up his teammates. 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? He plays the game with an infectious energy that, coupled with his trademark smile, made him a player Atlanta United fans fell in love with, and a player they had to know wouldn’t be around for long.By completing a two-year stint in MLS that went as close to perfect as anyone could have hoped, Almiron became the poster child for the league’s shift away from signing mostly aging superstars and instead targeting high-priced young talent. Sure, MLS still signs big names at the tail end of their careers, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney, but Almiron’s time in MLS, and his lucrative departure, are a blueprint more and more MLS teams will start to follow after seeing how well it worked for Atlanta United.The long-term success of that change in philosophy was always going to depend on the ability to take those young talents and keep their development heading in the right direction.Developing young talent in MLS would not only show prospective buyers that players who do well in North America can go on to do well in tougher leagues, but also convince future international prospects that the league is the perfect springboard for a move to Europe.There was a time when high-priced youngsters wouldn’t consider MLS, but those days appear to be over and Almiron’s transfer will ensure perceptions of the league will continue to change.It’s one thing for MLS teams to be willing to invest millions into young talent, but it would have been much tougher to attract those high-level prospects if Almiron’s career had stagnated, or if his winter move to Newcastle had fallen apart.  ​Miguel Almiron Atlanta United MLSNow with Almiron gone, the focus will turn to Ezequiel Barco, another high-priced teenager at Atlanta United who struggled through his first season in the league. Both Barco and $20 million signing Gonzalo ‘Pity’ Martinez will look to fill the void left by Almiron, while also trying to continue the Atlanta United trend of high-priced South Americans proving themselves worth the investment.Almiron leaves MLS without an MVP trophy to his name, but it’s hard to argue against the idea that he was the best player in the league during his two-year stint. Josef Martinez broke the league’s single-season goal record in 2018, but it was Almiron who was truly the engine of Atlanta United’s vaunted attack. His success could have easily been written off by MLS skeptics as the product of a superior player dominating an inferior league, but what European scouts are seeing more and more is a league that has improved considerably in the past five years, a growth that has helped convince foreign teams to go shopping in the MLS talent pool far more than ever before.That change hasn’t come without its own set of issues, namely more instances of foreign teams trying to pry away top MLS talent at a bargain price. In January alone, rumors have swirled around FC Barcelona’s interest in Carlos Vela and Club America’s pursuit of New York Red Bulls star Kaku. As good as it is to have more interest in MLS players, the league also can’t afford to be pushed around and have foreign clubs prying away the best players in MLS for anything below market value.That’s another reason why the Almiron transfer is so significant. Atlanta United president Darren Eales raised plenty of eyebrows when he stated that he believed Almrion was worth $30 million. That figure sounded wildly ambitious and unrealistic at the time, but Atlanta United fought to secure the price it felt was justified, even as the club faced the pressure that came with knowing it had to sell Almiron or risk a messy roster situation with four designated players, one more than the league maximum of three.Almiron’s transfer, coupled with the Davies move to Bayern Munich and Zack Steffen’s $10 million transfer to Manchester City, has shown just how much has changed for MLS. Eight-figure transfers were once unheard of for MLS players, with Jozy Altidore’s 2007 transfer to Villarreal the notable exception. This winter alone has generated three and could yield a fourth if Club America decides to make a serious push for Kaku after having an initial offer rejected by the Red Bulls.Almiron is far from the only young player to see his game sharpened, and stock bolstered, by his time in MLS. Venezuelan midfielder Yangel Herrera spent two seasons with New York City FC on loan from Manchester City and has now joined La Liga side Huesca, while Tyler Adams has hit the ground running with RB Leipzig after two seasons as a starter for the Red Bulls.The success in Europe of players like Almrion, Herrera, Adams and Davies will determine if prices for top young MLS talent continue to rise, with Almiron sure to face the most scrutiny. His days in MLS may be behind him, but Almiron will continue to be a standard bearer for MLS even after he trades in the red and black of Atlanta United for the black and white stripes of Newcastle United.last_img read more

Brazil assistant to watch Vinicius in El Clasico

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) confirmed Sylvinho will take in the match as part of an eight-game schedule in Europe.Vinicius’ fellow countrymen Marcelo and Casemiro will both be on the radar of the Brazil assistant if they play, whilst Philippe Coutinho, Arthur and Malcom could all feature for Barcelona.Sylvinho has already watched two AC Milan games – the 2-0 win over Napoli in the Coppa Italia on January 29 and the 1-1 draw against Roma five days later – to assess Lucas Paqueta ahead of a pair of Brazil friendlies in March.Tite’s assistant has been impressed by the midfielder’s impact since arriving from Flamengo in January and feels he could play an important role for the national team in future.”He is an important athlete who has adapted well. Milan is a great club, well organised by [Gennaro] Gattuso and with tactics similar to that of the Selecao,” said Sylvinho.”The first evaluations of Paqueta in Europe are very positive, without doubt he is a player with great room to grow.”Sylvinho will attend a third Milan game – their home match against Cagliari on February 10 – as well as Paris Saint-Germain’s clash with Bordeaux one day prior and Roma’s Champions League game with Porto next Tuesday.last_img read more

Report: Florida’s Jim McElwain Possibly Interested In Oregon Job

first_imgFlorida head coach Jim McElwain speaks to a reporter.Twitter/@BarrettSalleeRumors are swirling that Florida head coach Jim McElwain is interested in leaving Gainesville for the Oregon head coaching job.Jim McElwain has two SEC East titles under his belt, a 20-7 record and a shot to win a conference title this weekend with an upset win over Alabama—all in just his first two seasons as Florida’s head coach. That’s a pretty great first two years. There’s no way he’d leave for another coaching position, right?Well, not so fast.According to Dan Wolken of USA Today, McElwain might be interested in doing just that:There also are whispers that Florida’s Jim McElwain could be intrigued by the opportunity to return to the Pacific Northwest, close to where he went to college and started his coaching career at Eastern Washington. Despite winning SEC East titles in his first two years, McElwain has been a bit under-appreciated by the Florida fan base and just got a new athletics director in Gainesville.Interesting.To some, it feels like McElwain doesn’t actually want the Oregon job, just more money from his current employer.Despite back-to-back SEC East titles, McElwain is currently just the sixth-highest paid coach in the SEC.Whatever the case, Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich has yet to be fired, though it’s expected happen as soon as this week. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all shakes out in the coming days.[USA Today]last_img read more

Meyer says he believes he’s done coaching and his wife is hoping he’ll never coach again, but he’s only 54 years old.Stoops, meanwhile, is just 58 years old and could be a great fit at Notre Dame with his Midwest roots.Of course, this is all highly speculative (and premature), but a Notre Dame head coaching search would be fascinating to watch.last_img read more

Barrett has signed a reserve/future contract with the team.Barrett was signed to a contract by New Orleans as an undrafted free agent in May 2018 but was waived in training camp and signed to the practice squad. Thus began a four-month odyssey that saw him released and re-signed to the Saints’ practice squad more than 20 times.By signing a futures deal, Barrett locks himself into the team’s 90-man roster for the summer. He still seems like a longshot to make the 53-man roster for next season, but at least he’ll have another chance to showcase his ability.Barrett was one of six players the Saints signed to futures contracts this week.Saints sign six players to reserve/futures contracts, including J.T.
