With the game destined for a draw, defender Willy Boly popped up in stoppage time to score the winner.Speaking after the game, Nuno said: “The performance wasn’t the best, we competed well but we were sloppy, we weren’t accurate when we should be and we’ve got to improve that. It’s a tough stadium and environment but we managed the game well and we kept pushing.”I was trying to find solutions with our substitutions, Adama [Traore] did well but we struggled with the final touch, that’s something we’ve got to improve.”We’ll keep on fighting, it’s a competitive group but we’ll just keep looking forward. We were in the Championship two years ago, we must be proud, the fans were superb tonight. We have to improve and keep believing in the things that we do.”
Man Utd duo De Gea and Pobga ruled OUT of Liverpool clashby Ansser Sadiq9 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United will be without David De Gea and Paul Pogba for Sunday’s clash with Liverpool.De Gea was substituted during Spain’s draw with Sweden on Tuesday due to an abductor problem, while Pogba has missed United’s last five games with an ankle injury.”David needs a scan,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports of his Spanish goalkeeper. “I think he’ll be out. It certainly looked like it anyway judging on last night so it’s just one of those things.On Pogba, Solskjaer added: “Paul had an injury, he came back, he worked really hard. He came back and played a couple of games, maybe played through the pain barrier.”He had a scan after the Arsenal game and maybe needed a few weeks’ rest in a boot so hopefully he won’t be too long, but he won’t make this game, no.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say
Shaun King Crab LegsThursday night, former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, posted an Instagram photo of himself celebrating his No. 1 selection in the NFL Draft with a plate full of crab legs. Normally, such a photo wouldn’t be newsworthy – but given the fact that Winston was caught shoplifting crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix last April, it didn’t go unnoticed. Winston, who was criticized heavily for the post, eventually took it down, reportedly at the request of his new employer.Former NFL quarterback Shaun King, who is dialed into the football scene in northern Florida, has provided a bit of backstory on the photo Friday morning. He says that the crab legs were a gift from Captain Keith Colburn of The Deadliest Catch after Winston helped auction off a king crab at Mike Alstott’s charity auction earlier this year. He’s blasting people who have been critical of Winston.If people only knew how STUPID they sound killing this kid over that picture smdh— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015I was seated at the table right next to jameis at the mike alstott charity auction, when captain keith asked jameis to help him auction off— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015This huge king crab he had flown in for the event. Captain keith is from the deadliest catch show. I wasnt sure how jameis was gonna— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Handle the request, but it didnt faze the young man at all he simply said ok sure, we r here to help the alstott foundation right.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015That same captain keith in a gesture of thanks sent jameis and his family 25lbs of king crabs legs for his draft event last night.— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015Thats the backstory behind last nights picture for those of you who need to seriously have some self evaluation done— shaun king (@realshaunking) May 1, 2015While the backstory may be a bit more heartwarming than many would have guessed, Winston likely still knew the reaction he’d get for the post. Whether it was worth it – well, that’s a question that the new Buccaneers quarterback can answer.

Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorWhen Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer gets into recruiting mode, it isn’t all about the players. He finds a way to woo coaches, too.After the departures of co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Everett Withers and defensive line coach Mike Vrabel, Meyer had two vital positions to fill on a defense that allowed an average of 377.4 yards per game and ranked No. 47 in the country.Now after hiring two new coaches — both of whom spent time at rival schools — Meyer said he is pleased with his new hires.“We replaced (Vrabel and Withers) with Larry Johnson and Chris Ash, but a couple of comments with those gentlemen we hired. First, they wanted to be here, they both had very, very good jobs and they wanted to be here,” Meyer said to the media Wednesday.Johnson, who takes over as defensive line coach after 18 years with Penn State, inherits a unit that is set to return all four starters and helped spearhead the country’s ninth ranked running defense.Johnson said he can’t wait for a chance to work with the group of players.“Just watching from afar and watching it on videotape, I think it’s a very talented young group,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I can’t wait to get my hands on them. I’ve had two chances to watch them and I’m like a little kid. It’s like I’ve got some new toys to play with. I’m really excited to impart my wisdom to these guys and see how they respond.”Junior Michael Bennett, sophomores Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington and freshman Joey Bosa totaled 24 of OSU’s 42 sacks this past season.Meyer said he took notice of Johnson when putting together his initial staff at OSU, but didn’t hire him at the time because of Vrabel.“Larry Johnson is a guy (I have) had great respect for (for) many years,” Meyer said. “Made a phone call two years ago when I was hired here in December whatever year that was, I called Larry. We discussed Ohio State, but then I made the decision to hire Mike Vrabel. We just didn’t have a spot. Noah Spence’s dad called and said Larry (Johnson) would like to talk to you about a position … And the communication was great. We went and met in Indianapolis … and it was a no-brainer on our end.”Although Johnson’s pedigree as a coach is impressive, his abilities as a recruiter find a way to be noticed.Johnson said it is his “brand” that allows him to recruit players well.“I think obviously it’s my niche but I think the brand that I have is, I’m a teacher, I’m a fundamental development kind of guy,” he said. “I want to develop players into outstanding people and players and I think that all goes together.”Although the defensive line heads into 2014 with momentum, the Buckeyes’ secondary — which is now headed by former Arkansas defensive coordinator and secondary coach Chris Ash — doesn’t have quite the same hype.The unit finished the year ranked No. 112 in the country with an average of 268 yards per game and also loses four regular contributors in redshirt-senior safeties Corey “Pitt” Brown and C.J. Barnett, senior safety Christian Bryant and redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby.Meyer said it is Ash’s job to work on the pass defense.“He’s got a serious responsibility. That’s to improve our pass defense. He’ll be in charge of the entire back end of our defense,” Meyer said.Ash — who was named co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach upon his arrival in Columbus — said Wednesday he understood what Meyer wanted out of him as a coach.“When we met first, he discussed his vision for the defense and what he wanted to see when the film was turned on … There has been a great tradition of outstanding defenses here at Ohio State, (but) the last couple years it just wasn’t to the level that they wanted. Coach wanted to make some changes and go a different direction,” Ash said.Ash added that he expects his team to play one way: at full throttle.“Well, you play fast, you play with reckless abandon, you’re fast, you’re physical, you throw your body around. You play without hesitation,” Ash said. “There’s no confusion, you know exactly what you’re doing. You can react to your key and there’s only one speed: it’s full speed. And that’s the way we gotta play.”In each of his last two seasons at Wisconsin, before he took the job at Arkansas for what ended up being his lone year there this past season, Ash coached defenses that finished in the top 20 in passing yards allowed per game.Even with the new additions to the coaching staff, Meyer said he plans on taking a more involved role in the defense in the coming seasons.“I’m going to be more involved than I ever have been, just to make sure that we get up to standard at Ohio State on (the) defensive side of the ball with emphasis on pass defense,” Meyer said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to get their 2014 season underway Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.But before the season kicks off, there are some things the coaches need to learn about being a part of the OSU program.“There’s so much to learn. I walked in the first day and someone said, ‘Hey coach, no blue pens,’ and I didn’t know that,” Johnson said. “So there’s a lot of little things that I’ve got to learn pretty fast when you’re talking the team up north … As far as football and all those things, that’s easy. The learning (of) the ins and outs of Ohio State football, that’s the challenge for me.”But even with all of the new things he has to learn, Johnson said at least one aspect of the change is a plus.“My wife said I look good in red, so that’s a good start.”
Ipswich Town have signed Jordan Graham from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan.The winger is hoping his move to the Sky Bet Championship side will help rediscover his love for football.Graham has returns to Portman Road on loan from the Premier League new boys, having spent a similar temporary spell in Suffolk while an Aston Villa player in 2013/14.He has played just 28 games of senior football since then, though, with serious knee injury in 2016 halting his progress.“It’s been quite a tough couple of years for me and there hasn’t been much enjoyment in that time,” Graham said, according to East Anglican“I was doing really well before I got such a severe injury, which knocked it out of me for quite a while.”Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“I also want to be enjoying football and recapturing my love for it again. Coming here is the first part of achieving that. It has been difficult but Wolves know me and they know I play my best football when I’m happy.”“I find it hard when I’m not enjoying the environment I’m in. Being here with a few familiar faces that I know quite well and getting back to training and working hard, hopefully playing week in and week out, my best football will come back and everything will be alright again.”Graham is excited to be part of Paul Hurst’s squad and believes the style the new Ipswich boss is trying to play will suit his game, with the Blues sitting bottom of the Championship in no way putting him off.“I like what the manager is trying to do here, the way he is trying to play. It is quite a bit different from what Mick (McCarthy) was doing over the past few years here, so it was never going to happen straight away.
