liverpool fc

When the Liverpool FC third kit was first leaked, it was not met with a ton of positive response. Some supporters believed that the club might actually change their mind about the third kit given that 1.) they seemed to be taking so long to officially and unveil it and

Lovie Smith Articulating Illini Football Vision (Audio)

lovie-smith

Illini football Head Coach Lovie Smith was the first to speak at the podium on the second Big Ten Media Day this week, and his remarks brimmed with optimism. They were the type of remarks that you would expect a head coach to make on dais, during a media session broadcast live on BTN.

Media Days aren’t about news. It’s rare that actual news is made or released. Lovie Smith, as well as the other coaches, don’t really answer the media questions as much as they utilize the platform to get their program’s messages across. It’s the college football equivalent of a political stump speech, with reporter questions loosely serving as a tie-in to the talking points each coach wants to communicate.

dan-feeney

No one ever thinks of Indiana as a football school. Why would you? The gridiron Hoosiers haven’t been relevant for a long time and in Bloomington, IN it’s basketball 12t, 2nd, 3rd, 4th…..24/7/365. However, IUFB is making its presence felt in the NFL Draft in recent years.

Offensive Guard Dan Feeney is set to continue that tradition next April. The tough versatile tactician can play numerous spots along the offensive line and that greatly augments his NFL Draft stock.

cesc-fabregas-lionel-messi

Chelsea Midfielder Cesc Fabregas committed a horrific tackle on Liverpool‘s brand new defender Ragnar Klavan last night. For a preseason “friendly’ this was truly an astounding act. The straight red card level infraction turned the exhibition match very “unfriendly” in a hurry.

Things became heated, and tempers flared on both sides in the International Champions Cup Match won by Chelsea 1-0 at the iconic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California, USA.

Three Manchester United players took part in a gimmicky, others might say cringe-worthy, promotional video. Jesse Lingard is the instructor, with his teammates Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Timothy Fosu-Mensah the students at Dab University.

Spoiler alert: CBJ outperforms Timbo. Second spoiler alert, this vid may have killed off the lean and dab for good. The dance move was getting a bit too 2015 anyway.

liverpool fc

Back in April, Liverpool Defender Mamadou Sakho made headlines (along with teammate Divock Origi) for finding a Liverpool fan’s phone which had been lost on the pitch, in the excitement of a thrilling win. Sakho and Origi made phenomenal light-hearted news with this act.

Today, Sakho is making headlines because of a much more unpleasant situation.

Antonio Conte Says He Inherited Strange Situation at Chelsea

antonio-conte

Quoting the Grateful Dead, “what a long strange trip it’s been.” Chelsea FC ran away from everybody in 2014-15, winning the Premier League title by a very large margin. Then last season brought a title defense which went about as poorly as anyone could have ever conceived. Actually, it was probably worse than anyone could have ever predicted.

Then Manager Jose Mourinho completely lost the dressing room, and found himself sacked by Christmas. Guus Hiddink was tasked with cleaning up the mess in the interim, paving the way for Antonio Conte to now spearhead the rebuilding project.
