Jesse Lingard scored both the last official goal of the Louis van Gaal era at Manchester United, and the first of the Jose Mourinho era. Both scoring strikes came at Wembley Stadium too. When it comes to goal celebrating, Lingard loves his dab, and now he has Paul Pogba on board to do it with him.

Left back Luke Shaw will not be joining in this particular party however.

Phil Jones to Stay at Man United Despite Stoke City Interest

phil-jones

(Update: via The Guardian “Phil Jones is content to stay at Manchester United, and José Mourinho has no desire to see him leave, despite Stoke City being the latest club to express an interest.”)

We’ve seen a fair share of Manchester United “defender crises” over the past couple seasons as the injury bug has continued to repeatedly bite the back line hard. No one knows this better than Phil Jones, who missed significant time in 2015-16 due to various injuries, including a six week lay off due to a blood clot problem in his leg on the eve of the season.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Still on Man United’s Trading Block

bastian schweinsteiger

Bastian Schweinsteiger is perhaps the most fun name to say in all of sports. That’s not an understatement; I really mean that. The Manchester United and Germany midfielder announced his retirement from international competition on July 29th; meaning the 2016 European Championship semi-final versus France was in fact the end of the line for the Captain of Die Mannschaft.

Also, his club future is very much still in doubt. United Manager Jose Mourinho‘s treatment of Schweinsteiger this summer has been quite controversial.

Predicted Chelsea FC Starting XI vs Bristol Rovers

chelsea fc

Chelsea FC welcome League 1 side Bristol Rovers to Stamford Bridge for the 2nd round of the newly branded EFL Cup. It’s a tournament known by many names, the League Cup, the Capital One Cup…it’s mostly a big deal for the smaller division clubs, but a genuine after thought for the Premier League sides.

The brightest stars on the team, like Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante will likely sit this one out. I doubt Cesc Fabergas will feature either.

Shipping Ice Cream Across State Lines

Unless you’re planning on selling ice cream to customers who live in your town or those who visit the area, you should try to make plans to shop your products across state lines. It’s often easy to do as long as you have the right ice cream shop supplies. You need to make sure the ice cream is completely frozen when it’s shipped and that it’s made right before it’s shipped so that it’s as fresh as possible when it’s delivered.

As the great St. Louis born poet Cornell Haynes, better known as Nelly, explained in 2002: “what does it take to be #1? #2 is not a winner and #3 nobody remembers.” Or as Chicago native Kanye West told us, alongside Pharrell in 2006, “#1, can’t put nothing above that.” 

The prestigious #1 jersey at Northwestern will go to Linebacker Anthony Walker in 2016.

Illini Football Has Strength in DL, Finally an Identity with Defense

dawuane-smoot

In 2016 Illini football finally has something that they haven’t had since the early to mid ‘90s- a true identity. In the days of Kevin Hardy, Simeon Rice and Dana Howard, Illini football was essentially Linebacker U. Light. Although 2001 and 2007 were special seasons, they seem too fluky now in retrospect and hence don’t help to figure an identity.

In the 1980s Illini football was a quarterback factory, but most of you reading this would regard that as ancient history. In Lovie Smith, they now have an identity, and that identity is defense.
