Getafe president Torres: Real Madrid players are giving upby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveGetafe president Angel Torres says it’s clear Real Madrid are in crisis.Just as Barcelona were winning at Getafe, Real Madrid were being beaten at home to Real Sociedad.Torres addressed Real’s problems after his own team’s defeat and said: “Something is happening, something does not work, but I have enough with Getafe, but the league is deteriorating with the hole that Barcelona has opened.”Florentino (Perez) has to fix it. The money of three Champions Leagues, Madrid cannot spend a lot of time without winning the league, I’ve seen today’s game and people have lowered their arms, I hope they fix it.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
Arsenal boss Emery played Ozil, Mustafi in Reading friendlyby Paul Vegas9 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery fielded a strong XI for Tuesday’s friendly with Reading.The match was Mark Bowen’s first as new Royals manager.The game finished 2-2, with Sam Baldock netting both of Royals’ goals.The former Brighton man had given Reading the lead, before an Arsenal team – which included senior pros Mesut Ozil, Ashley Maitland-Niles, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi – hit back.Baldock had the last laugh though as he claimed his second goal to earn Royals a draw.

COLUMBUS, OH – NOVEMBER 26: Mike Weber #25 of the Ohio State Buckeyes celebrates with teammates after scoring a touchdown during the second half against the Michigan Wolverines at Ohio Stadium on November 26, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)One by one, members of Ohio State’s freshman class are earning the removal of their black stripe and officially becoming true Buckeyes. Offensive lineman Isaiah prince was the first freshman to earn the honor, and after today’s practice, Urban Meyer announced that Mike Weber has done the same.Mike Weber was a work today at practice and earned the removal of his black stripe. Welcome to the Buckeyes 20. #ScarletAndGrey #GoBuckA video posted by The Ohio State Football (@theohiostatefootball) on Aug 15, 2015 at 3:26pm PDT That has to be a pretty special feeling for an Ohio State freshman. Weber, a Detroit native, caught a bit of heat during the winter when he was photographed wearing Michigan gear. It is safe to say that he’s put that Ohio State faux pas behind him, as he becomes the second 2015 freshman to prove himself to the rest of the team.
Fred may have had a difficult debut season at Manchester United, but the midfielder should not give up on his quest to be a success in the Premier League, according to Brazil icon Rivaldo.The 26-year-old joined the Red Devils from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer in a deal worth around £52 million ($68m).Although he started his side’s first three games of last season, the Brazil international was soon dropped by coach Jose Mourinho and was unable to cement a place in the starting XI. Article continues below Editors’ Picks 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? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Fred was given another chance under current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but was again left out for the final weeks and ended the season with just 17 Premier League appearances.And while Rivaldo admitted that his compatriot’s maiden year in England has not been great, he challenged him to put up a bigger fight to secure a place in the first-team in 2019-20.“Things haven’t been easy for Fred at Manchester United and some people say he should find another club. But I disagree with that,” he told Betfair.“He is a good player who needs to be patient and keep working hard to earn a starting position in the United midfield.“I don’t think leaving would solve his problems, and it would be preferable to stay and keep fighting for his place.”The former Barcelona and AC Milan striker also discussed Gabriel Jesus’ chances of success at Manchester City next season.The 22-year-old is also yet to establish himself as a regular in the starting XI at his club, though he pitched in with 21 goals in 47 games in all competitions.After seeing the striker play a crucial role in Brazil’s Copa America triumph – he scored and assisted a goal in both the semi-final and final, Rivaldo is sure he can impress Pep Guardiola and challenge Sergio Aguero for his place.“Gabriel Jesus is full of confidence after a successful Copa America campaign for Brazil and looking forward to regaining his place in Manchester City’s first team,” he added.“He lost his place to Sergio Aguero last season, but I believe Jesus has the ability to be a starter in any team.“The morale and confidence that he is bringing from Copa America could help him to become a regular starter and scorer for the Citizens this season.”
Kyler Murray MLB Draft update: one analytics-based baseball site is extremely high on the Oklahoma two-sport star. Murray has been ranked as a potential second rounder by some experts, including ESPN’s Keith Law. Now, FanGraphs has him even higher.FanGraphs just put out its 2018 MLB Draft Board. In it, prospects are ranked on their athleticism, frame, performance, and, for pitchers, delivery. The rankings are done on a five point scale, from minus-minus (–) to plus-plus (++) for elite potential in an area.Murray comes in at a plus-plus for athleticism, the third-highest ranked player given that distinction. He was also a plus in performance.The one knock on him is his frame, for which FanGraphs gave him a minus. Obviously, that is an even bigger concern for his future as a quarterback.In the full draft rankings, FanGraphs have Kyler Murray as the No. 21 ranked player.The evaluation of Murray often comes down to his decision to focus solely on baseball, rather than splitting time with football. Law said as much earlier in the process. Via The Oklahoman:“Murray is slated to start at quarterback this fall for the Sooners, but if he’s finally ready to play baseball full time, his plus-plus speed and contact-oriented swing would make him a first-round pick — especially since he’s played fairly well since moving into the Sooners’ lineup in the third weekend of the spring,” Law wrote.Even with his rising MLB Draft stock, Lincoln Riley isn’t concerned about losing his quarterback to baseball. he said as much on AP writer Ralph D. Russo’s podcast a few weeks ago.“Yeah, I don’t really have any concerns with it,” Riley said. “You know, Kyler and I have had some good, private conversations about it, and I’m comfortable where he and his family are at with it and I think he’s comfortable where we’re at with it. So we’ll proceed and certainly expect to have him.”Right now, Oklahoma fans just want Murray to get healthy. The star outfielder remains day-to-day after suffering an injury in the Big 12 Tournament. The Sooners are the No. 3 seed in the Tallahassee region of the NCAA Baseball Tournament, and face Mississippi State State on Friday at 12 p.m. ET. The region also features host Florida State and Samford.[FanGraphs]

“We’re going to wait and see how it all turns out with Maurice,” Frost said Thursday at Big Ten Media Days. “He’s been doing a pretty good job in the weight room with the team. We won’t make any decisions on status or anything until we know his legal problems are over.Here is the video from Frost’s press conference:Nebraska head coach Scott Frost on the status of sophomore I-Back Maurice Washington:”We’re going to wait and see how it all turns out.” #Huskers pic.twitter.com/b1SaiLpCQC— Kevin Sjuts (@kevinsjuts) July 18, 2019Nebraska is expected to be pretty competitive in the second year under Frost. However, any absence from Washington could affect the team’s offensive production.Washington had 455 rushing yards and four total touchdowns last season. He is supposed to be the primary running back for the Cornhuskers this upcoming season.Stay tuned for the latest. LINCOLN, NE – NOVEMBER 10: Head coach Scott Frost of the Nebraska Cornhuskers watches first half action against the Illinois Fighting Illini at Memorial Stadium on November 10, 2018 in Lincoln, Nebraska. (Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Although the upcoming season is almost here for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the status of running back Maurice Washington is still up in the air. Scott Frost is hopeful that he’ll have his best tailback available, but there isn’t any indication he’ll be suiting up for Week 1.Frost enters next season with high expectations. During his time at UCF, he led the program to an undefeated season in just his second year.The Cornhuskers have a bunch of playmakers returning for this season, yet the uncertainty surrounding Washington could present a challenge for the offense. He is currently facing two legal charges after allegedly sending a sexually explicit video to a former girlfriend.One of the biggest questions this week at Big Ten Media Days was when Nebraska expects Washington to return. Frost didn’t have a definitive answer.
OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI – SEPTEMBER 07: Nick Starkel #17 of the Arkansas Razorbacks warms up before a game against the Mississippi Rebels at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on September 07, 2019 in Oxford, Mississippi. (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images)It should go without saying that a quarterback’s undershirt isn’t what makes him play well or poorly in a given week, but in college football, small bits of minutiae and superstition can be blown out of proportion. When an SEC team like Arkansas loses to one of the worst teams in all of FBS, you’ll see plenty of people grasping at straws over the result. This week, it is quarterback Nick Starkel, and his Justin Bieber shirt.The former Texas A&M transfer threw five interceptions in the Razorbacks’ shocking 31-24 loss to San Jose State, one of the worst Group of Five teams over the last few years. SJSU only converted one of those picks into a touchdown, but the final one handed the ball back to the Spartans and allowed them to run out the clock.Starkel has become somewhat famous in the college football world for his devotion to pop star Justin Bieber. Most notably, he made a tradition of wearing a Bieber shirt under his uniform during games.It has officially made a comeback… @justinbieber pic.twitter.com/rh6yyh6Mix— Nicholas Starkel (@NickStarkel) July 16, 2019 Again, nothing about this explains the five interceptions. Still, Starkel felt the need to address the shirt after what was likely the worst loss of his career.After the game, he tweeted that he was “done with the distractions,” and he had ripped the shirt in half.Bieber shirt has been ripped in half and thrown away. No more nonsense. No more distractions. All I’m focusing on is this team and this season. Nothing else. ✌🏼— Nicholas Starkel (@NickStarkel) September 22, 2019He may not have expected to draw a reaction from Bieber himself.The Biebs hopped on his Instagram story to let Nick Starkel know that he is disappointed in the decision.2019 hogs is Justin Bieber being disappointed at Nick Starkel for throwing away the game day Bieber shirt… what a time to be alive pic.twitter.com/hLCm5n6Wwq— kendra rich (@kendra_rich) September 22, 2019Arkansas has the look of a last-place finisher in the SEC West after the SJSU loss, the Chad Morris era doesn’t look to be progressing in the ways many thought it would, and now the Razorbacks have lost one big Belieber.It is definitely a tough week in Fayetteville, for sure.[TMZ]

Redmi 7A may launch alongside Redmi K20 series: All we know about Xiaomi’s entry-level phoneThe Redmi A series serves the entry-level segment. The upcoming Redmi 7A is going to follow the same strategy. Leaks and rumours suggest Redmi 7A is in the works and will be launching soon. Here are the details.advertisement Sneha Saha New DelhiMay 21, 2019UPDATED: May 21, 2019 11:33 IST HIGHLIGHTSRedmi 7A could be coming soon.Leak suggests the Redmi 7A may launch on May 28.The Redmi 7A will succeed the Redmi 6A launched last year.Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi has confirmed the launch date of the Redmi K20 series. The two Redmi flagships aka Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro will launch in China on May 28. Following China, the Redmi K20 with Snapdragon 855 will come to India very soon. A new report now reveals that there’s another device that will launch alongside the Redmi K20 series. The third Redmi phone is expected to be a cheaper one. This suggests that the third phone launching alongside the Redmi K20 series could be the Redmi 6A successor aka Redmi 7A.This bit of information comes from tipster Ishan Agarwal. He took to Twitter to talk about the coming of a cheaper Xiaomi Redmi phone. In the tweet, he said, “Redmi K20 and K20 Pro are not the only devices launching soon in China. There is a budget Redmi coming soon as well…” Although the tipster didn’t reveal the name of the cheaper Redmi phone, we believe it to be the Redmi 7A for two reasons.One: The Redmi 7A is the only phone that’s left to be launched in the Redmi 7 series. The company recently launched the Redmi 7. Two: The Redmi 7A made its way to TENAA benchmarking site with almost all the key specs. Let’s take a quick look at what the benchmark listing revealed about the Redmi 7A.–The TENAA listing reveals that the Redmi 7A will come with a 5.45-inch display with thick bezels. –This means the phone may not sport Dot Drop Notch display. –In the listing the phone is listed with screen resolution of 720×1440 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. –The benchmark listing reveals that the Redmi 7A will be powered by 1.4GHz octa-core processor–The phone is said to come in three variants — 2GB RAM/16GB storage, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.–The listing shows the phone with dual-SIM slots –It runs on Android Pie-based MIUI 10–On the camera front the Redmi 7A is listed with a 13-megapixel sensor at the back. –On the front, it is tipped to include an 8-megapixel sensor. –The listing shows the Redmi 7A with a 3,900mAh battery, 3.5mm headphone jack. –There may not be face unlock or fingerprint sensor on the Redmi 7A.advertisementAs of now, there are no reports on whether the Redmi 7A will head to India or not. However, considering the past track records, we believe the Redmi 7A will come to India soon. As the Redmi 7A will replace the Redmi 6A in the market the phone is expected to be priced between Rs 5,000 and Rs 6,000. The price of the Redmi 7A could be in the Rs 5,000 – Rs 6,000 price segment because the Redmi 7 costs Rs 7,999. So, Xiaomi will try to keep Rs 2,000 price difference. Currently, Xiaomi is gearing up to bring Redmo K20 and Snapdragon 730 powered Mi phone could be the Mi A3.ALSO READ | Honor 20 series launch set for today: Expected specs and livestream detailsALSO READ | US delays Huawei ban for 90 days, founder says company has made preparationsALSO READ | Redmi Note 7 to be discontinued in India soon, will be replaced by Redmi Note 7SGet 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?

PV Sindhu, Ben Stokes complete sporting ascendancy on Super SundayOn a Super Sunday that enthralled sports fans, PV Sindhu in Basel and Ben Stokes in Leeds worked their way, in contrasting styles, to sporting glory. The World Championships 2019 women’s singles final and penultimate day of the 3rd Ashes Test are certainly unforgettable sporting episodes.advertisement Akshay Ramesh New DelhiAugust 26, 2019UPDATED: August 26, 2019 17:34 IST PV Sindhu and Ben Stokes worked their way to sporting glory. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSPV Sindhu became the 1st Indian to win BWF Championships goldBen Stokes’ unbeaten 135 helped England pull off a miraculous Ashes winStokes and Sindhu conquered demons to achieve unquestionable greatnessTwo athletes, two different sport and two contrasting wins. The Super Sunday couldn’t have lived up to its name better. PV Sindhu was staking her claim to greatness in Basel. On the other side of the English channel, Ben Stokes was at it in Leeds.At large, it was a story of two athletes finally managing to cross the finish line without stumbling at the final hurdle. PV Sindhu at Rio Olympics, Glasgow World Championships, Nanjing World Champions, Jakarta Asian Games and Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Ben Stokes at World T20 final in Kolkata, the World Cup thriller in London (if you remember it right).Both PV Sindhu and Ben Stokes overcame their demons in emphatic styles and proved they are among the finest in sport.PV Sindhu asserts greatness in BaselSindhu was called “choker”. It was said she was “not yet gold standard”. Sindhu had won two bronze medals at World Championships even before she made a Superseries final. At 22, she became the first ever Indian female athlete to win a silver at the Olympics. However, the lack of a gold medal in her illustrious CV was highlighted more often than not.As Sindhu pointed out, questions were asked “over and over” over her inability to finish on the top step of the podium at major events. Her temperament and her big-match skills were doubted.On Sunday, Sindhu let her racket do the talking in Basel.”This is my answer to people who have asked questions over and over. I just wanted to answer with my racket and with this win — that’s all,” PV Sindhu said after becoming the first-ever badminton (senior) world champion from India.advertisementPV Sindhu vs Nozomi Okuhara, World Championships 2019 Final: Highlights | ReportSindhu’s ordinary run in the lead up to Basel World Championships can be seen as a blessing in disguise. When Sindhu reached the final of the Rio Olympics, not many expected her to be there. It is safe to say, Sindhu punched above her weight en route to the second step of the podium at Rio de Janeiro.However, the burden of expectations, to some extent, worked against her favour at major tournaments between Rio 2016 and Basel 2019 — a period in which Sindhu lost 7 major finals before managing to win the World Tour Finals last year.PV Sindhu, it seemed, was in no mood to “settle for silver” on Sunday.Against Nozomi Okuhara who had beaten her in a marathon 110-minute final at the World Championships in 2017, Sindhu set out to prove her critics wrong and show herself what she is capable of in the biggest stages in world badminton.Sindhu needed just 38 minutes to do so on Sunday.The agonising 3-game defeat in Glasgow seemed a distant past when Sindhu was making light work of Okuhara’s challenge.

Editors’ Recommendations A Peek Inside the Joseph Abboud Factory: Italian Fabric, Made in America The Best Men’s Parkas for Braving the Cold The next time you hit the slopes, don’t fall in with the North Face-clad crowd. Set yourself apart with Owner Operator’s high-performance outdoor gear. Helmed by longtime snowboarding Steven Kimura and Peter Sieper, this independent company sidles away from the industry status quo. “When we started out, there were all these brands that weren’t exciting or inspiring to us,” Kimura says. “We wanted to change the industry.”All of Owner Operator’s products, currently found at six New York City stores, are made domestically in a factory located in NYC’s Garment District. With backgrounds in art and fashion design, Kimura and Sieper pay meticulous attention to technical details. “Figuring out how to make something that’s functional and can keep you dry in a snowstorm is a challenge,” Kimura says. “We wear our stuff out in the mountains to find the weak points. And the next time we’re in the factory, we make sure it’s done differently.”Kimura says the company is best known for its Operator 111 Parka ($490), featuring an emergency whistle and a three-way adjustable hood to brave any cold-weather conditions. Complete the look with matching Operator 111 pants ($335). We also dig the durable Day Pack ($165) and the waterproof Summit Mitt ($110), adorned with adjustable cinch straps.
