Christian Pulisic will be a World Class Player, Says Daniel Farke

Share

Tonight saw Christian Pulisic accomplish yet another game in which he either scored, assisted or won a penalty that set up a goal. The American wing player was the helper on Olivier Giroud’s scoring strike, the only goal in a very dull match that saw Chelsea defeat Norwich City 1-0.

The match also provided a chance for Pulisic to reunite with one of his former coaches in Daniel Farke. The German, now head man at Norwich, knows Pulisic well from his days in charge of Borussia Dortmund II from 2015-17. Farke, as much as almost anyone, has had a close-up view of Pulisic’s growth and development over the years.

University of Kentucky Coach John Calipari met the media, virtually, via Zoom this morning for a session that focused primarily on his recently having partnered with the McClendon Foundation.

Calipari will work with other college basketball coaches to help launch the McLendon Minority Leadership Initiative (follow this link for more), but the main takeaway from the session was Coach Cal’s pleas to “just wear a mask.” The Wildcats head man said this phrase a few times, and he’s absolutely right to keep repeating this message. Simply put, a lot of people are just not listening, and they need to finally “get it.”

Tottenham at Newcastle Team News: Aurier, Ndombele, Alli, Hayden

Share

Currently seven points adrift of the fourth and final UEFA Champions League qualification slot, with only three games left, Tottenham Hotspur are certainly the outsiders in the top four race. At least, for their sake, their final three fixtures provide winnable games against Newcastle and Crystal Palace, along with a chance to take points from one of the teams they are chasing, Leicester City.

To have any realistic shot of making the UCL though Spurs will need to win all three and hope that several of their rivals collapse in form over the run in, a combination of events that seems highly unlikely. Up first is a trip Geordie Land.
