‘I’m Jan Siewert and I have to do it my way’: New Huddersfield manager rejects comparisons with David Wagner and Jurgen Klopp

Siewert, who began to focus on coaching at the age of 23 after a series of knee operations that evenhan Barnett, speaking with Sky Sports, has refused to shut down the prospect of Bale joining United this summer.”Manchester United? He could go,” revealedNorwich City striker Teemu Pukki says he’s having “fun” this season.The Finn scored in defeat to Italy in last night’s Euros qualifier.He told TMW: “I’m having fun playing football. “I’ve had two very good years, I have confidence in myself, scoring so many goals makes you confident in your abilities. “Things are going very well, I hope to continue like this.” Barnett. “I think he could get there, he’s still one of the best players in the world. “But it’tually forced him to retire, is also keen to avoid comparisons with Klopp.

“Jurgen is definitely an inspiration,” he said. “But please, I can’t be compared to Jurgen Klopp, you know what I mean, because he has had so many successes, and he’s an outstanding manager. And I’m Jan Siewert.”

The new manager’s early days in England have also seen him involved in a more comical identity mix-up, after he was confused with the chief executive of a Yorkshire-based children’s charity during Sunday’s match against Manchester City.

Sky Sports reporter Patrick Davison approached a man he thought was Siewert during the game, only to discovan coach Antonio Conte.The Italy international was brought to Stamford Bridge by Conte in January 2018.Now at Inter, Conte is getting to work with setting up his characteristic 5-3-2 system.Ivan Perisic is the favourite to fill the LWB role, however,er it was Manchester City supporter Martin Warhurst, head of the Martin House charity.

Siewert confirmed he was at Sunday’s match, but hidden elsewhere at the John Smith’s Stadium to avoid the media.

“I have to thank Martin from Wakefield because it was fantastic that I could observe the game,” Siewert said. “And he’s a good-looking guy, yeah? I’m not kidding; for me it was good to have a silent look at the game and get the atmosphere and the feeling.”

Siewert takes charge of a club who face a near-impossible job to avoid relegation, sitting bottom of the Premier League, 10 points from a position of safety, having won just two of 23 matches.

Wagner left by mutual consent on January 14 after more than three years in charge, having taken the club into the top division for the first time since 1972, then kept them there last season.

Julian Winter, Huddersfield’s chief executive, said that Wagner had indicated before Christmas that he needed to take a break from management.

Winter said: “David is a good man. We maybe first had a conversation four weeks ago, something of that order.

“David, being the human being that he is, sort of said building up to a January transfer window: Does the club want to adapt, think about different things? The maturity of that conversation was exactly as it was publicised.”

Winter added that Huddersfield had made preparations so that the club would not suffer off the field in the event of relegation.

He said: “To be blunt, this club has been prepared for getting into the Premier League and it will be prepared if it is not in the Premier League.

“We retained our status last season, which was fabulous. But we know that if this club does get relegated, it doesn’t fall into crisis. There aren’t fire sales.”

West Ham interested in signing Steven N’Zonzi, confirms David Moyes

Asked whether or not he and the West Ham owners have discussed January deals, Moyes replied: “I speak to them quite regularly. We’d like to add to the squad if we can and in the position in the table that we are we’ll need to.

“But finding the right players and looking for them is a bit different. Sometimes the ones you might want are not available at this time. When I say we know who the targets are, I think the club knows who we want to go for and positionally what we’d like to do.

“I think what changes is if you go for your target and you can’t get him, what do you do? You’ll have to look for another target. Hopefully we’ll have two or three in consideration.”

Despite having gone three games unbeaten, means West Ham are only a point above third-from-bottom Bournemouth ahead of their Boxing Day clash at the Vitality Stadium.

“Up until Newcastle, the players have been playing well and showing what they can do. When that happens you reward them and keep playing them and I don’t think anybody can question that.

“But I do know what Andy Carroll and Chicharito’s qualities are. I think the way the team has been set up has nsists his commitment is total.Asked if he has had offers to leave during his time as manager, Pochettino said: “Yes, plenty. From everywhere. Daniel [Levy] knows.”He added: “Daniel knows very well our commitment to the club is massive. It is more thbeen better suited to the quicker boys playing up front. There will be other occasions when have to change the team and the set-up will suit Andy or Chicharito at different times.”

Rumor. SpSouness feels for Harry Maguire at Manchester United.Souness said he rates Maguire and doesn’t blame the England defender for United’s poor form, but insisted the Red Devils must improve their midfield. He told The Sunday Times: “Until they fix it, Ueculation. A draft-day trade. A first-round QB. The new face of the franchise in Buffalo.

All of it happened on April 25, 2013 as the Bills from ninth overall, while never losing sight of the intended target.

“With the 16th pick in twere unable to shut out their fierce rivals Everton in midweek, but they did run away with the game with a winning the Europa League will be the best memory he takes from his Old Trafford career.Herrera has announced he’s leaving United at the end of the season.He told manutd.com: “There are a few. But if I had to choose one or two then I’d pick the Eu5-2 win.And given their eight point lead at the top of the Premier League, Van Dijk is not too concerned about the few goals they may concede.”he 2013 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills select EJ Manuel, quarterback, Florida State.”

Bills DE Chris Kelsay calls it a career

content_img

Defensive end Chris Kelsay has said for years that he wanted to spend his entire playing career with the Buffalo Bills. On Wednesday he made sure that would be the case. After 10 years with the club Kelsay announced his retirement Wednesday.

“I want to thank Mr. Wilson for the opportunity he gave me 10 years ago to be a Buffalo Bill,” saisays Arsenal are confident of completing a loan deal for Ceballos – and beating Tottenham to a second summer signing.Gunners boss Unai Emery has targeted Ceballos to join Arsenal on a one-year loan deal to bolster his squad and become a much-needed ad Kelsay. “One of my goals was to finish my career with the team that drafted me and that came to fruition. I feel very blessed to say that.

“The Buffalo Bills’ fans are the best in the NFL. Having played in every NFL stadium over my 10 years, there are no other fans like the ones we play in front of at the Ralph. It’s inspiring, it’s emotional and it’s exciting every moment you step on the field,” Kelsay continued.

“Your teammates are a big reason why you do this. Being around long enough you establish a lot of lifelong relationships, not just in the locker room but around the building. That’s something I’ll carry with me and cherish for the rest of my life.”

[

Kelsay appeared in 147 games for the Bills since the time the club made him a secondnham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he’ll need to utilise his squad depth this season.The manager admits there is a frustration over their lack of consistency.He said, “England is a very competitive country. I’m lucky to have the possibility to pla-round draft choice in 2003. That ranks 16th most in team history. The defensive end stands ninth on the team’s all-time sack list with 32.5 in his career. Kelsay also ranks eighth in team history in forced fumbles with eight and is tied for first in team annals in career safeties with two along with Ron McDole.

The Nebraska product was a locker room leader for the defense and remarkably durable throughout his career. After missing just three games in his first eight seasons, Kelsay missed 11 total in 2011 and 2012. After sustaining a torn ligament in his neck in the middle of last season he was eventually placed on injured reserve for the last four weeks of the year.

ormer Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce says he could manage again.Allardyce has been out of work since leaving Everton at the end of last season and, while insisting he is in no rush to get back into management and enjoying his work as a pundit, t

One of the more notable highlights of Kelsay’s career came in the home Monday night game against Dallas in 2007 when Kelsay tipped a Tony Romo pass in the air to himself for an interception return for a touchdown.

In retirement the 32-year old will return to his native Nebraska with his wife Natalie and three children.

Liverpool 2 West Ham 2: Divock Origi salvages point for hosts after Loris Karius blunder further dents title challenge

content_img

data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

Re-watch the last six goals they have conceded and ask how many were preventable? At least three. Probably four.

Karius needed a performance to back up . Instead he was again unimpressive, failing to shove away Dmitri Payet’s 28th-minute free-kick. He can spend the week finding another former Manchester United player working in the media to ­respond to if it makes him feel better, but it does not alter that . 

He may get better. Longer term, he could become the most assured Liverpool keeper since Clemence. But Liverpool are a side still capable of winning the title this year, so spare us the high-ground lectures against those justifiably infuriated that such an obvious flaw is undermining their latest challenge.

It was more exasperating for the Kop because, just as at Bournemouth, they had watched their side start as if they were in the mood for a rampage.

Adam Lallana was able to return to the starting line-up for the first time since being injured playing for England against Spain. He immediately demonstrated what Liverpool have lacked in his absence, controlling exquisitely before drilling the home side ahead on five minutes ­after Sadio Mané’s cross and some inadequate defending.

After West Ham’s mauling by ­Arsenal a week ago, Bilic must have feared the worst. Instead, his clever use of Michail Antonio as a striker in the first half bothered Dejan Lovren and, to a lesser extent, Joel Matip on the counter-attacks. There was an early warning when he scurried clear on eight minutes, his shot pushed over by Karius prior to the goalkeeper’s travails from Payet’s set-piece.

There was more fortune about West Ham’s second six minutes before the interval. Havard Nordtveit’s long ball was inadvertently flicked on by Jordan Henderson; it wrong-footed Matip who, that aside, was outstanding. In the clear, Antonio directed the ball beyond Karius, who was again unimposing.

But Randolph returned the ­favour three minutes into the second half, dropping Mané’s cross to enable ­Divock Origi to tap in. The festive gift exchanges ended there with the visitors defending more resolutely the longer the game progressed.

Not for the first time, a fixture list many presumed had Bilic staring into the abyss may have led to his salvation, a point at Old Trafford and Anfield makes that 5-1 humiliation against Arsenal an oddity.

“We showed great reaction after the goal,” said Bilic, who as a former Besiktas coach dedicated the point to victims of Saturday’s terrorist ­attack in Turkey. “It’s a really great point for us before a crucial week.”

For Klopp there is worrying ­momentum to reverse. Top of the league before the last international break, Liverpool now find themselves hanging onto the coat-tails of Chelsea heading into the festive ­period. The loss of er Joe Allen.The veteran central midfielder is wanted by several Premier League clubs.But the Championship side have put a £15 million price tag on his head, per the Daily Mail.The source claims that West Ham are only willing to pay around £8 milliPhilippe Coutinho is not helping, and the squad suddenly looks much thinner at the busiest, tiring stage. He has a bench full of teenagers and needs the senior men to return.

“It is difficult to stay in the title race with ,” said Klopp. “This is the moment to collect as many points as possible. It’s a negative we didn’t win but it is still a point. We are still on a very good way. We are third. Come on – a lot of teams should feel worse.”

Bilic left Merseyside feeling the vote of confidence in him expressed by the West Ham board had gone some way to being validated.

We must wait a while longer for Karius to demonstrate the show of faith in his skills from Klopp will be similarly rewarded.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 “The criticism was very harsh,” said Klopp. “When we analysed the [Bournemouth] game I found eight players who could have defended the goal before Loris was involved. Even the best goalkeepers in the world still make mistakes.” Or as Pepe Reina, one of Karius’ predecessors, put it earlier this week: “It’s a team that also at times has to do better for the goalkeeper.”

The Hammers beat Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal on their travels last season, which perhaps inflated their end of season points total to put them in a false position. They’ve found things tough going this term.

Stats via Opta

What form are the two teams in?

Liverpool were flying until last week’s , having not lost in their previous 11 league matches. Jurgen Klopp’s side are third heading into the weekend’s matches, four points behind leaders Chelsea and a point second-placed behind Arsenal. 

To use the modern footballing vernacular West Ham are in a very bad moment. They were dreadful in , and are winless in their last five league matches (D2,L3). Going into the weekend’s matches, Slaven Bilic’s side are 17th, just a point above the relegation zone. 

What have the managers been saying?

"I have no idea when he will be back," said Klopp.

"Until now he didn’t train. He wasn’t 100 per cent yesterday but he will be on the pitch today but that means starting the work. He won’t be with the team."

"That is the life of football. You cannot force things like this.

"The main reason why we have lost our intensity is that we have had so many injuries, all in a small space of time.

"Then, because we had three games in a week, we had to balance things, not walk on eggshells exactly, but to be careful in training.travel to Italy for their Europa League clash at Inter Milan.Italy is in a state of lockdown and no football is allowed to be played in the country until April, other than European competitions, because of the spread of coronavirus.Torres came out on

"I would like to clarify this now. I was not criticising my staff. My reason was not to moan because we had lost to Arsenal but to provoke a reaction so we can get back that intensity.

"We have had a good few days’ training but, rather, I want and expect to see a good reaction in the long term.

"The bottom line is yes, it is my job to get the best out of my players – and I said just that, a few times, straight after the Arsenal match. I am not in the blame game because that achieves nothing."

What are the odds?

Liverpool – 3/10

West Ham – 10/1

Draw – 5/1

What’s our prediction?

Liverpool to win 3-2.

Training Camp Practice Report: Aug 19

content_img

It happened on the most innocent of plays. With their pads off the first team offense faced the starting defense for a segment of 11-on-11 work. On the first play of the segment Trent Edwards turned to hand off to Marshawn Lynch and the two players knocked knees sending Edwards hobbling further into the backfield.

The collision got more of Lynch’s kneecap and more of Edwards’ quadriceps muscle. After being checked by trainers on the field Edwards walked under his own power to the locker room to get the muscle iced down as quickly as possible.

“Trent ended up getting a quad contusion and it was a pretty deep one so they took him in and treated it quickly and tried to get it before it swelled,” said head coach Dick Jauron. “The collision was with Marshawn and his knee was a little bit sore by the end of practice so we took him off right at the end. He finished practice, but hopefully they’ll both be fine as we move forward.”

Edwards did not appear to be favoring his right leg at all as he walked off the field to the locker room. For Jauron who saw his team wind up with 17 players on injured reserve last season, he could only accept the result of the play for what it was.

“It’s just the nature of life,” said Jauron. “Things happen. There’s nothing guaranteed. You just go out and practice and hope everything comes out alright. Hopefully he’ll be fine.”

At this point Jauron will not assess whether or not Edwards will be healthy to play in Sunday night’s preseason game at Indianapolis.

“We’ll just have to see what happens because sometimes they come back very quickly and sometimes they don’t,” said Jauron. “Sometimes it turns into a deep bleeding thing and we’re hoping it’s not that.”

Getting repsNaturally with Edwards leaving practice early J.P. Losman took all the first team reps with the starters on offense. Losman took a series or two to adjust as the plays Edwards was to run in practice were different from those chosen for Losman.

So stepping in for Edwards in the practice setting didn’t quite resemble a game situation.

“You kind of study your plays that you have for that day and you get thrown in with some plays that you weren’t going to run that particular day,” said Losman. “So all of a sudden your mind has to concentrate and focus on that.victory over Torino.Ante Rebic scored the only goal of the game on Monday night.“I think the result and the performance were good tonight, we risked little,” Pioli told Sky Sport Italia.“There are 14 games left, and I’m already thinking about the It’s a little bit different from a game because in a game they’re set plays and you’re ready to go. Just being ready.”

In the ever rotating right defensive tackle position, Kyle Williams was back with the first unit next to Marcus Stroud. John McCargo and Spencer Johnson had been in there the past two days. Williams has taken the most reps with the ones thus far.

Tight end Courtney Anderson got some first team reps on some running plays, while Derek Fine took some first team reps as well.

Bryan Scott continues to fill in for the absent Donte Whitner (excused) at strong safety, which also brings John Wendling up to the second unit.

Ryan Denney was also mixed in for some first team reps working on both the left and right side in place of Chris Kelsay and Aaron Schobel.

Felton Huggins, Justin Jenkins and Steve Johnson continue to get more reps with James Hardy and Roscoe Parrish out.

Injury updateAs for Hardy (hamstring) and Parrish (sore knee) both will be out at least through Wednesday.

“We’re hoping Thursday and Friday,” said Jauron of his two receivers. “But we’ll have to wait and see. They have made a lot of progress.”

New to the injury list was linebacker John DiGiorgio who has been dealing with a strained calf.

“John’s calf muscle got a little bit weak on him, just today,” said Jauron. “It’s been bothering him today and it really was weak so we want to make sure we take care of that for the game.”

Derek Schouman is also out indefinitely with his knee sprain.

HighlightsRyan Denney almost made a gigantic play as practice started. On the first snap from scrimmage in 11-on-11, Denney coming from the left defensive end position got up field so quickly that he almost intercepted a swing pass from Edwards intended for Marshawn Lynch, but the pass caromed off his arm so all he got credit for was a pass breakup. Still a good play.

Fred Jackson had a good looking reception as he made an outstretched grab coming across the middle. Jackson has been just as good as some of the top wideouts in camp when lined up wide.

Derek Fine had a good night in the receiving game. After an early drop Fine was back on track quickly and had a handful of receptions on the night incer Mauro Icardi.Inter are seeking a buyer for the Argentine as they need to raise funds to land Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.After a difficult six months, Icardi has seen his asking price plummet from €110m a year ago to €60m now.Such luding a nice catch down the seam as he got behind his defender on a throw from Gibran Hamdan.

C.J. Hawthorne made an acrobatic catch along the far sideline as he leapt high in the air to pull in a deep out pass from Hamdan.

Jason Jones had a good read of zone coverage and sat down in a hold in the coverage to pull in a pass from Matt Baker.

Defensively, Ashton Youboty had a pass breakup on a touchdown pass intended for Jones from Baker.

Felton Huggins made plays again Tuesday night including a touchdown reception on a throw from Losman who threaded the pass between three defenders for the score.

Dwayne Wright was running downhill all night and looked powerful through the hole. Some of his decisions with the ball in his hands earned praise from running backs coach Eric Studesville.

Jaas favourites.The Reds kickoff their defence at Napoli tonight.Fabinho said, “We are among the favourites, having won it a year ago. “The competition is very difficult, there are the best teams in Europe. Our goal can only be to qualify by thinking gson Jefferson had a batted pass while lining up at the defensive end position.

Two minuteDuring the first two minute drill the first team offense needed only a field goal to win. Losman hit tight ends Courtney Anderson and Robert Royal on two of his first three passes on the drive. A reception by Josh Reed and Royal got the team into suitable field goal range before the clock expired.

On the second two minute series the offense needed a touchdown. Gibran Hamdan got a big chunk of yardage on the first play as he hit Derek Fine for a big gainer. He followed that up with a strike to Felton Huggins for first down yardage. After an incompletion he hit Huggins again for a first down.

However, after two incomplete passes and a sack on third down by Bryan Scott with the defense bringing the heat, Hamdan lofted a fourth down pass with five seconds left to Steve Johnson in the middle of the field. Johnson made an athletic leaping grab, but when he came back down to the turf he had only reached the one-yard line where he was touched down by the defense. 

Special teams updateBlocking field goal attempts was a big focus for the special teams unit. Blocking kicks when coming off the edge came first and Justin Jenkins proved most successful with three blocks.

Then the linemen worked on blocking kicks up front. Aaron Schobel and Kyle Williams had blocks during the drill.

Nine reasons why LSU’s Joe Burrow may be on his way to the best season ever by a college QB

content_img

Best ever? That might be a label worth considering for LSU’s Joe Burrow.

Check that. Best season ever … by a quarterback. It’s worth discussing considering the numbers, the winning, the personality and the transformation of a career, a team and a program.

Six players have thrown for more yards in a season than Burrow’s 5,208. Only one has thrown for more touchdowns in a season (55).

But none of them went from afterthought to projected No. 1 overall pick. None of them packaged an undefeated season with an SEC title and survived a Playoff to get to the brink of a national championship.

That national crown is the last step. Chasing it is a kid from rural Ohio, a transfer from Ohio State who embraced Louisiana, its culture and its team.

“Standing at the 50-yard line before each game and the Saints run out … Drew Brees is gathering his thoughts before he walks in that huddle and gives them a pregame speech,” recalled LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady, a former Saints offensive assistant. “And you know there is not a person in that stadium or person in that huddle who doesn’t feel like we have an opportunity to win. … We have that at LSU. I feel that way about Joe Burrow.”

What follows are 10 things to consider about Burrow and his incredible 2019 season as we begin that best-ever debate. In the process, CBS Sports mixed in the reaction of various football sources.

That was the year Jameis Winston led Florida State to the national title in the last year lback Aaron Wan-Bissaka was left frustrated by his U21 Euros campaign with England.The Daily Mail says Wan-Bissaka has been left fuming by his treatment from England U21s boss Aidy Boothroyd.The right back was in the process of completing a move fromof the BCS. (Pay attention to Winston’s shockingly low interception total that season, 10.) Before that, it was Cam Newton, almost as a one-man offense for Auburn. Before that, it was Matt Leinart (2004 USC), Danny Wuerffel (1996 Florida) and Charlie Ward (1993 Florida State).

Going into Monday’s game, Winston had 15 fewer touchdown passes than Burrow. Newton had 2,366 fewer passing yards. Leinart finished with 22 fewer touchdown passes. The record for a Heisman-winning quarterback is 48 touchdown passes. Burrow has 55 with one game to go.

“This transformation from a seemingly average guy is truly amazing! Remember, Ohio State let him walk out the door!  … On the run? When was the last time something bad happened when he extended the play? Ability to make plays with his legs? Check. Freakish football season.” — Rick Neuheisel, CBS Sports college football analyst, former Pac-12 coach

Seventeen players have thrown for at least 5,000 yards. Seven have thrown at least 50 touchdown passes. What makes those benchmarks so remarkable is Colt McCoy. In becoming the Heisman runner-up in 2009, the former Texas quarterback completed 76.7 percent of his passes. That record has stood for 11 years. Burrow would have to go 13 of 25 (52 percent) in the CFP National Championship to finish below McCoy’s 2009 mark of 76.7 percent. The last time Burrow finished below 52 percent was 19 games ago in the 2018 Alabama game.

To put it in perspective, Burrow completed 57.8 percent of his passes in 2018 (219 of 379). To reach his 2019 mark of 77.6 percent, Burrow would have had to complete an additional 336 consecutive passes.

In his last two games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Burrow has thrown 11 touchdown passes. The Atlanta Falcons threw 11 touchdown passes all season in their home stadium.

“Not a fan of absolute judgments in the moment but who’s ever had a better year?! Never had a clunker game this season, either.” — Charles Davis, Fox analyst, former Tennessee defensive back

This is real simple to put in perspective. Brennan set that record in a conference that no longer exists — the Western Athletic Conference.Twelve of those 58 scores came against four Power Five schools: Alabama, Arizona State, Purdue and Oregon. The rest came against the likes of Eastern Illinois, New Mexico State and Idaho.

Burrow has faced 12 Power Five opponents (throwing 46 touchdown passes), including nine SEC foes (37 TDs).Oh, and there were seven scoring passes against Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl semifinal. Burrow needs four touchdown passes vs. Clemson to break Brennan’s record. Five would give him 60.Fasten your seat belts. He’s thrown four in a game nine times in his career. Five times Burrow has thrown five touchdown passes.

“Never seen anything close to his performances in a single season!” — Steve Clarkson, owner of Dreammaker quarterback camps, throwing coach for Leinart

One of the results was Burrow becoming arguably the best quarterback in the last five years. Since Pro Football Focus has begun keeping stats in 2014, Burrow’s had the best season in Wins Above Average (2.52). Ohio State’s Justin Fields was second this season at 1.78. “He’s the highest-graded passer under pressure and is setting LSU and PFF College records in the process of a historic season, the likes of which we haven’t seen,” PFF wrote in November 2019.

You don’t come to LSU to manage games. That’s not what we are looking for. You come to excel at the biggest stage.” — Joe Brady

“Impressive but also a product of the times. Spread offenses/formations have given these guys such easy completions. Not to mention protection for pass catchers with targeting. Quarterbacks can make tighter window throws not worrying about repercussions.” — Brady Quinn, CBS Sports HQ analyst, former Notre Dame quarterback

“We have five guys in routes every single snap, and it’s tough to cover. You kind of have to pick your poison.

How two was better than one all night for Alabama vs. Oklahoma in the 2018 Orange Bowl

content_img

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Heisman Trophy winner ran circles around the No. 1 team in the country on Saturday night in the Orange Bowl. Kyler Murray made spectacular downfield throws, dizzying, darting runs and looked like, well, a Heisman Trophy winner.

But his entire performance was a postmortem show. The death blow had been delivered long before Murray staetired from international football.The midfielder, who has been in four World Cup squads and won 80 caps, joined League One side Southend United in the summer from Scottish Premiership club Hibernian.”It has been a privilege to be involved with the Srted tearing apart No. 1 Alabama as the Tide took a 28-0 lead early in the second quarter. And it wasn’t just the Heisman runner-up who took it to No. 4 Oklahoma early and often at the start of the game. It was a player across the line of scrimmage who also has a case for being considered the best player in the country.

Tua Tagovailoa, lining up behind center, and Quinnen Williams, lining up in front of center on defense, gave the Sooners 17 minutes of hell. By the time OU had its footing, even six straight scoring possessions weren’t enough to erase the deficit Tagovailoa, Williams and their supporting cast had created.

The beauty of the performance of both Tagovailoa and Williams is the way they unlock the rest of Nick Saban’s mighty roster. Tagovailoa was masterful, almost perfect, completing 24-of-27 attempts for 318 yards passing with  four touchdowns and no interceptions. Wide receiver Devonta Smith was his favorite target, and he jabbed the Oklahoma defense with slants for 104 yards on six catches. In total, a 2018 team record nine players caught passes for the Tide, including backup quarterback Jalen Hurts.

By his own admission, Tagovailoa was only 80-85 percent healthy on Wednesday. About 72 hours later, he looked 100 percent by any human standard. He was active in the pocket, successful scrambling and precise as a passer. Even when he did experience his first serious contact on the Tide’s second drive of the game, he threw a touchdown pass one play later. After some injury-hampered outings against Mississippi State, Auburn and Georgia, Tua looks like Tua again, and the offense is back to juggernaut status.

Of course, Oklahoma has a way of bringing out the best in an opposing offense. This is, after all, the same Sooners team that gave up 40 to Kansas. It also has a tendency to bring out the worst in a deer became a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.He said: “Of course it’s hard to get to a big team.“But then it’s harder to stay there because you are competing with a lot of footballers that are such hard workers.“When you get to the big clfense, though. It even made Alabama look very uncharacteristic on Saturday but not before Williams got his paws on it for 17 minutes.

During that decisive 28-0 start, Williams was dominant. Like Tagovailoa, Williams’s domination helped to spread the production around. He only had one tackle himself on the night, but he was creating chaos on nearly every snap in that first quarter.

Behind Williams and the rest of that Alabama defensive front, Oklahoma’s award-winning offensive line looked overmatched. It took a full quarter for that unit to adjust to the best defender in . By the time it did, Oklahoma had been outgained 200-24, giving up two sacks and going 0 for 3 on third down tries. And it was down by three touchdowns.

Alabama’s two stars were better than Oklahoma’s one. It’s two units — including a defense able to contain Murray, other Premier League sides want to sign Butland, but have been put off by Stoke’s valuation, according to the Birmingham Mail.The Potters want more than £20 million for the 25-year-old, which no one is willing to pay.Stoke boss Nathan Jones confirm if only for a quarter-plus — were better than one. Alabama was better than Oklahoma, and it was clear from the start that what we all expected rang true: The Sooners were good but flawed.

And in this era of college football, with Alabama and Clemson playing at such an elite level, flawed teams need not apply.

USC vs. Texas score: Longhorns dominate No. 22 Trojans with impressive second half

needed a big win to get some heat off of coach Tom for granted in the Champions League.The Reds begin their defence of the title with a tricky game against the talented Italian outfit.And Klopp knows that if his side are not at their best, Napoli will be happy to pounce on any weaknesses.The last timHerman’s back. And a big win — the 900th in the illustrious history of the program — the Longhorns got in the form of a 37-14 beatdown of the No. 22 . 

The final score didn’t reflect how tight things were for the first half. USC jumped out to a 14-3 lead after the first quarter but the Longhorns responded by chipping away at the lead and taking a 16-14 halftime advantage. 

That’s when the floodgates opened. After scoring on its first offensive possession of the third quarter, Texas took a 50-yard blocked punt back for a touchdown to go up 30-13. Texas capped off the 21-point third quarter with a four-yard touchdown run by quarterback . 

It wasn’t a perfect performance by Texas. Play-calling continld has explained the thought process behind his incredible crosses.The 22-year-old registered his 12th assist of the season in Monday’s win over West Ham United when he set-up Sadio Mane to tap home the winner.Asked whether he seeks out a teammate wiues to be a puzzle for this offense. A lot of Ehlinger’s passes were difficult throws downfield when there was space in the more intermediate part of the field. The running game only began asserting itself later as USC wore down, too. But it’s a win for Herman, and he needed one in the worst way. 

It doesn’t matter a ton that USC has a lot of questions. The special teams were bad — the Trojans had shanked punts, a roughing the kicker penalty and the aforementioned blocked punt — and the offense had no ground game with just six yards rushing. That doesn’t help freshman quarterback , making just his second career road start. USC is now 1-2 and certainly doesn’t look like a team ready to compete for a Pac-12 championship. 

Herman will take it, though. Afn attacker Anthony Knockaert.The Sun says the Cottagers have made contact with Brighton and while a formal offer has yet to be made, a £15million fee has been discussed.Knockaert will be tempted to drop down a division by the prospect of a hefty incter a horrid start to the season with a loss to and a tighter-than-necessary game with , Texas needed something good. There’s no rest for the weary, though, with coming to Austin next. USC gets on a short week. The Trojans have also lost back-to-back games by double digits.

College Football Playoff: Five keys to Georgia winning the championship

content_img

ATLANTA — The No. 3 have a chance to win their first national championship since 1980 on Monday night in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, when they take on No. 4 in the Playoff National Championship. 

Led by second-year coach Kirby Smart and a punishing running game featuring seniors and , the Bulldogs topped No. 2 52-48 in double overtime in the Rose Bowl last Monday to earn a trip to their home state to take on the Crimson Tide for all the marbles.

What are the five keys for the Bulldogs?

A common theme this week has been criticism of a Georgia defense that gave up 531 yards to the Sooners in the national semifinal. Sure, that’s a big number, but that number doesn’t tell the whole story. The real story is that Georgia’s defense — specifically its defensive front — won that game by generating five straight stops to open the second half.

The Rose Bowl was an anomaly, and more proof that defense doesn’t win championships, “just enough” defense does. “Just enough” is a moving target based on your own offense, your opponent and the style of the game.

Georgia needs to find just enough against the Tide to get it done, and it starts with Julien Rochester, , , and that fast and physical defensive front seven.

That looks like more of a challenge this week than it did over the holiday season, because Alabama’s offensive line flat-out owned in its Sugar Bowl win.

“Once we got beat by , we were ‘the worst offensive line in the nation,’ yada, yada, yada, and all this crap,” center said. “We really wanted to make a statement and prove that we deserve to be here, and I think we did that tonight.”

Was that the anomaly, or a sign that “old school” Alabama football is back? 

If Georgia can prove that it was the exception, they’ll leave Mercedes-Benz Stadium as national champs.

It’s one thing to win the battle in the trenches. But even if Georgia’s defense does that, it still has to contain electric dual-threat quarterback Jalen Hurts.

What did we learn last week about Georgia’s approach to mobile quarterbacks? They need to come right at them. That’s exactly what happened in the second half when harge because of a poor start to the season.Milan are 13th in Serie A, three points above the relegation zone, after three wins in their first seven games.Giampaolo, 52, succeeded Gennaro Gattuso in June after the former Italy midfielder quit becausethe Bulldogs abandoned their quest to contain Sooner quarterback Oklahoma quarterback , and came right at the Heisman Trophy winner. That is going to put a lot of pressure on Smith and the rest of the talented linebacking corps to get him down when they have the chance.

“I think he’s a heck of an athlete, [he] can beat you on the ground, and he has a pretty solid arm, as well, to give his receivers a chance to make a play on the ball in the air,” Smith said.

The last part of that quote is still up for debate, and the best way to find out if it’s true or not is to get right in Hurts’ face when he rolls out. Don’t give him time to look downfield. Make sure he has to make quick decisions in the passing game.

Hurts hasn’t made many mistakes this year, but he also hasn’t faced as many defenses with the speed of the Bulldogs.

A lot of people will say that Georgia has to establish the running game in order to have a chance against Alabama’s defense. 

That’s just not true.

Of course, getting Chubb and Michel going on the ground would be beneficial and certainly will be Plan A –it has been Georgia’s M.O. all year. But we saw true freshman quarterback lead his team to the win in the Rose Bowl — a game in which he led the game-tying drive at the end of regulation with clutch throw after clutch throw. 

You can’t script a bigger moment, and Fromm thrived in it.

No, it isn’t the running game that needs to get going. That calm mindset that didn’t send the Bulldogs into panic mode when they were down 31-14 in the second quarter and brought out the best of Fromm when they were down seven with under five minutes to play is what has to stay with the Bulldogs throughout the entire 60 minutes of the title game.

And I do mean “entire.”

Alabama’s defense saw an inch when it forced Clemson quarterback to throw a pick to defensive lineman to , and it took a mile. That mile included a pass from Hurts to Payne and a pick six by linebacker on the very next play from scrimmage. 

Br Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton.The Sun says Burnley are lining up a cut-price £1million deal for Bitton.Dyche is a keen admirer of Bitton and wants to try to sign him in January to boost his options in a number of areas.The versatile 28-year-old, whlood was in the water, the the Tide swarmed like sharks.

Georgia is the more complete team. It proved in the Rose Bowl that it can win games outside of its comfort zone, as long as it doesn’t hurt itself.

Don’t get cut.

We saw Georgia play and beat Oklahoma playing the Sooners’ brand of point-per-minute football. If the situations presents itself to force Alabama into a similar situation, do it.

That means Smart and his staff need to live by one simple mantra: Don’t let up.

It can be argued — I think rather successfully — that Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley made a poor decision going conservative in overtime in the Rose Bowl loss to the Bulldogs. Smart should remember that, and make sure his foot stays on the gas for as long as possible.

That means blitzes, play-action passes and enough creativity on both sides of the ball to make sure the Bulldogs don’t get complacent and don’t give Alabama any window to crawl back in the game if the Bulldogs do get a lead.

After all, we saw Alabama dominate Clemson playing Alabama football. We saw Georgia top Oklahoma playing Oklahoma football.

Smart and the Bulldogs want to play old-school, smash-mouth football too. That has been and always will be Plan A. But they also know that their Plan B works better than Alabama’s.

 Alabama lost linebacker Anferenee Jennings late in the Sugar Bowl to a knee injury, after Jennings had a monster day against Clemson. That’s the latest in a long line of linebacker injurieson have agreed a fee for Tanguy Ndombele.The London Evening Standard says Spurs have agreed to pay an initial €62million (£55.45m), while the overall deal could rise to over £63m due to future incentives.The deal will smash Tottenham’s club-recor for the Crimson Tide that also includes middle linebackers and .

Georgia needs to test that depth and discipline, and the best way to do it is with tempo.

We’ve seen Georgia go up-tempo a lot this year in big situations, including the SEC Championship Game win over Auburn. They don’t always snap it quickly, but they do get to the line in a hurry, often to prevent defenses from substituting. Simply getting to the line quickly will stress middle linebacker Mack Wilson — who calls the signals in place of Hamilton and Moses — and simply running plays will stress the depth of the defensive-minded Crimson Tide.

WATCH: Jimbo Fisher says Auburn won ‘Kick Six’ game vs. Bama with ‘illegal’ plays

Jimbo Fisher is a great offensive coach. We knew this long before he led to the national championship, but what many fans may not know is that he’s great at teaching the game as well. Fisher regularly contributes to the Nike Coach of the Year cte for Ernesto Valverde’s job at Barcelona.RAC1 says Barcelona have deal for Chelsea attacker Pedro.The Telegraph says the Spanish winger is out of contract at the end of the season and could be available for a cut-priced fee.Villa boss Dean Smith is hopeful of securing a deal when the transfer window reopens in Januturned their attentions towards Pochettino to replace the under-pressure Valverde.It was expected that their former player Xavi would take over at the Nou Camp, but the Al-Sadd managlinics and is more than happy to “talk ball” when reporters know how to ask the right questions.

Fisher offered an unsolicited lesson on modern college offenses to reporters this week, explaining the conflict created by the run-pass option (RPOs) and quarterback runs. The college rules allow a lineman to be three yards upfield at the time of a pass, so a lineman has at least a few yards to fake a run block (freezing linebackers and safeties) while the quarterback waits for his receiver to get behind the defense. “It’s why you’re seeing scoring so high right now across the country,” Fisher says.

“What they’re doing on offense right now is illegal. Should never be part of football, and I’m an offensive guy,” Fisher said. “When you can have a lineman go three yards doreparing a first offer for Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez.After completing a two-season loan at Bayern Munich, James is now up for sale at Real – and a confirmed target for Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis.Le 10 Sport says De Laurentiis iwn the field and it’s a pass, there’s something wrong with that.”

Lineman can’t get that far upfield in the , so it’s obvious why RPOs aren’t as popular at the next level. Fisher points out that everyone thought the running quarterback would be the next craze, only to see the effects of extra hits take a toll on high-priced investments for franchises.

The entire presentation was great, then Fisher inadvertently made headlines for pointing out that those kind of option plays with lineman upfield “cost a national championship.”

“When we played for the national championship, they had a lineman seven yards down the field on the pass they threw that tied it up before the “Kick Six.” They would have never been there, should have been illegal,” Fisher said. “Last year when they played Ole Miss on TV? Had lineman six yards down the field.”
