first_imgLeicester defender Evans: Incredible Ricardo our best player every weekby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City defender Jonny Evans has hailed the progress of teammate Ricardo Pereira.They have conceded just five goals in seven Premier League games, the fewest along with Liverpool. And Evans told the Mirror: “We’ve got a good young side. “There’s obviously a bit of inexperience there, but we’ve got some really good young players coming through, skillful, athletic and quick.“Our right-back, Ricardo, is probably our best player every single week, he’s incredible. It’s a privilege to play alongside him. Getting Tielemans on a permanent deal was a massive statement for the club. He came in last season and lit the place up.“When he came back after his loan spell and signed for us, it gave everyone a massive boost. He had big teams in for him, but he wanted to come back to Leicester.“It showed he could see the huge potential we’ve got in our squad. We’ve got a great bunch of lads, a great dressing-room and there’s no real egos in there, which is fantastic.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Scotland coach Clarke raps fans barracking Liverpool fullback Robertsonby Paul Vegas17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveScotland coach Steve Clarke has hit back at the Tartan Army barracking Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson.For the defeats against Russia and Belgium, Robertson received the brunt of the criticism levelled at the squad.”Listen, when you don’t win matches you are going to be crucified,” Clarke told The Scotsman.”Andy is experienced enough to realise that. He is the captain and the one who gets it. But it is unfair. It’s unfair to single out Andy Robertson and say that he should take the criticism.”Everyone should take the criticism. It’s a collective thing. I have spoken to Andy since, we had a good chat and he is fine.”Robertson is not the first Scottish Liverpool player to be questioned for his performances at international level. Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen were both subjected to the same treatment.”There is always going to be certain criticism – Alan Hansen wasn’t good enough to play for Scotland either,” Clarke bemoaned.”The best way to avoid the criticism is to get points, to win matches and draw matches you are expected to lose. That just makes everyone feel a little bit better.”It’s the same in club football. Winning covers a multitude of sins. If you start to win matches everyone will be on board and more positive about it. They will stop talking about the players who are not selected and instead speak about the ones who are.” last_img read more

Indiana Basketball Fans Have Launched TomCreanBuyout.com

first_imgWebsite devoted to Tom Crean's buyout.Tom Crean has put together a very talented Hoosiers roster, but many fans aren’t thrilled with the results. Crean took over a program that was hit hard by NCAA violations under head coach Kelvin Sampson, and went 28-66 in his first three years in Bloomington, before leading IU back to the NCAA Tournament in 2011-12 and 2012-13, when it reached back to back Sweet Sixteens. Crean’s program was a disappointing 17-15 last season, and is 19-11 this season, and right on the cusp of the NCAA Tournament. We’ve seen unhappy fans launch websites calling for coaches’ jobs before, but the unhappy Indiana fans have taken a bit of a different approach. Someone has launched www.tomcreanbuyout.com, which provides information on the cost to buyout Crean’s large contract. http://www.tomcreanbuyout.com/http://www.tomcreanbuyout.com/Indiana is set to bring back most of its roster next year, barring possible NBA Draft departures, and stand a solid shot at making this year’s NCAA Tournament. We expect Crean to be back, but it is certainly understandable why Hoosier fans’ patience is running short.last_img read more

10 People In Sports Media Who Lost Their Jobs For Controversial Comments

first_imgProvocateurs have proven to be very valuable in the current sports media landscape. Years ago, ESPN caught lightning in a bottle with shows like Pardon The Interruption and Around the Horn, the new next step in that direction, First Take, is basically the model for how rival FOX Sports 1, which is hiring away longtime co-host Skip Bayless, is building its daily programming. A show like First Take relies on big news-making declarations, and opinions that will get people riled up. Sometimes, on live television or a fast-paced medium like Twitter, personalities cross the line, and are punished.The most recent example is Emily Austen, a Tampa Bay Rays and Orlando Magic sideline reporter for FOX Sports Florida who will no longer be appearing on the network due to racist statements she made on a Barstool Sports Facebook Live show. She is far from the only sports personality to be given the axe for things they’ve said.In 2016, I made a bad decision and my life took an unexpected turn. Now, I’m passionate about helping others avoid making a similar mistake. pic.twitter.com/BlRsOAZFYR— Emily Austen (@emilyausten_) March 14, 2017Here are 10 of the most notorious examples of people in sports media who have been fired for the things they’ve said.Next: Get Started With Emily Austen >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11last_img read more
