David Luiz Knocks Over a Chelsea TV Presenter in Training (Video)


Chelsea FC stole the thunder on transfer deadline day by bringing popular defender David Luiz back to London with an 11th hour signing. David Luiz “won that internet” that day due to the move that no one saw coming.

Now he wins the internet again with this take down of Chelsea TV presenter Lee Parker. While Parker was in the midst of his stand-up previewing the Blues next match, Luiz comes flying out of nowhere to hilariously take him down, WWE style.

Watch Nathaniel Chalobah afterward, which only adds to the humor.

Man United Starting XI Prediction vs Blackburn Rovers (FA Cup)


Time for another Man United Starting XI prediction as the Red Devils face a very quick turnaround for the FA Cup 5th round clash versus Blackburn Rovers. This will match number three in an insane stretch that will see five matches in 15 days. Hence Manager Jose Mourinho will have to rest some of his starters and let some of his benchwarmers see major time.

Although he won’t go with a team that’s all fringe guys, as he’ll have to include some strength.

Mourinho Says He Respects Football Because he knows it “Can Be Nasty”

Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho said a lot in his post match press conference following the 3-0 win over ASSE in the Europa League. The Red Devils weren’t especially brilliant, but they did benefit from some luck in getting a Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat trick. Ibra was both lucky and good, and now the Red Devils are in excellent position to advance to the UEL round of 16.

United Manager Jose Mourinho was unhappy though at half time. He treated his players to a spirited half time rant, the specifics of which are detailed for you at this link.

Former Man United Star Denied Travel to U.S. Over Iranian Visa Issue

dwight yorke

On Saturday January 28th, massive protests erupted at airports all across the United States. It was a response to the most extremely controversial and inherently discriminatory executive order that President Donald Trump has signed. The E.O. commonly known as the “Muslim Ban” temporarily barred entry into the U.S. citizens from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Later, a federal court in Seattle overturned the order. Trump’s representatives stated in court documents that they will not appeal the the ruling in a higher court and will instead replace the “travel ban” with a new, modified one. However, given the current political climate surrounding immigration issues, and Trump’s ultra-authoritarian and stubborn ruling style, more turmoil is expected.

So even while the ban is still currently on hiatus, former Man United star Dwight Yorke was denied entry into the United States, simply because his passport had an Iranian stamp on it.

Purdue Basketball Will Carry the B1G Flag Come March Madness

With both of the B1G’s banner basketball programs (from a traditional sense) down this season, someone else needs to step up this March Madness. This Purdue basketball team has the best chance of rising to that occasion.

Indiana, the league’s most storied program to Gen-Xers and everyone older, is way down this season, especially so by their very lofty standards.

Unless they pull off a miracle B1G Tournament run, they’re not dancing this year.

Michigan State, the B1G juggernaut to Millenials and younger, is substantially down from their usual high standard of quality. The Spartans are a bubble team, and not many really expect them to do a whole lot in the big dance next month, should they qualify.

Michigan State Basketball: Update on Eron Harris Knee Injury


It’s been a very rough season for Michigan State basketball, and today it only got worse.

Injury was added to insult as redshirt senior guard Eron Harris went down midway through the second half of another blowout road loss. MSU fell 80-63 at #16 Purdue in a game that wasn’t as ugly as the rout at Michigan, but it wasn’t that much prettier either.

Take a look at the Harris play, which resulted in what Michigan State basketball personnel officially called a “right knee injury,” before the game had concluded.

Arsene Wenger Says He’ll Keep Managing Beyond His Arsenal Tenure


Another rough one for Arsenal FC and their fans Wednesday. The 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 wasn’t just a gut punch, it was an utter annihilation. Given Arsene Wenger’s declining popularity (which was already low to begin with), speculation surrounding his potential sacking ran rampant. 

However, according to multiple reports, he’s safe at The Emirates until the end of the season, no matter what happens. The Frenchman maintains that he’ll keep on managing beyond this season, whether that be in London, or elsewhere.
