new-manchester-united-kit-paul-pogba

Manchester United showed signs of progress today in their 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers, as they actually fell at the hands of Wolves twice last season. However, at the end of the day, United are now winless in their last four against Wolves, going back to last term.

Speaking of the number four, and covering the span of time that goes back to the beginning of the 2018-19 campaign- that’s how many penalty kicks United midfielder Paul Pogba has missed over that duration of time. Striker Marcus Rashford however, has never missed a single PK for United, or England for that matter, and he’s taken some big ones in his brief career.

Christian Eriksen Reportedly Snubbed a Manchester United Offer

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen shocked his teammates earlier this summer when he publicly revealed his intentions to find a new challenge elsewhere. In the final year of his deal and having reportedly rejected a contract extension, the Dane finds his club future very much uncertain at the moment.

He had heavily been linked to Manchester United, but nothing happened before the transfer window closed in the U.K. ten days ago. According to one news source, Eriksen rejected an opportunity to leave Spurs for a fellow big six rival club.

Romelu Lukaku Reportedly Recruiting Alexis Sanchez to Join Him at Inter Milan

Romelu Lukaku is reportedly heavily recruiting his former teammate, fellow Manchester United disappointment in the forwards position group Alexis Sanchez, to join him at Inter Milan. His recruiting pitch appeals to the natural scenery and climactic advantages that Milan holds over Manchester.

This is a narrative being reported by the Daily Mail, and it’s somewhat reminiscent of Edurne, United goalkeeper David de Gea’s better half and Spanish pop star, infamously saying that Manchester looks like the back of a refrigerator.

2019 Minnesota Golden Gophers Football Season Preview, Predictions

Expect year three of the P.J. Fleck regime to keep the Minnesota Golden Gophers football program projecting upward. When he was at Western Michigan, he led the Broncos to a 5th place finish in their division the first year, third place in his second, and to the top of the division in his third.

Last season, his second campaign in charge at Minnesota, saw an improvement in both conference and total wins. Now comes his first season in the Twin Cities with actual expectations. Anyone who hires Fleck knows that he cleans house before rebuilding a program, so year three is when you should expect the payoff. A favorable schedule and friendly roster composition points to that happening.

Uninspiring Christian Pulisic Showing Polarizes Chelsea Fans on Social Media

If #LampardOut has a twin brother, then it’s probably “Christian Pulisic is overrated.” Fan overreaction has been around as long as sports have had spectators, but it’s really ramped up, and then injected with steroids in the era of social media. Christian Pulisic has yet to play a full 90 minutes in a league game for Chelsea, but he is already getting written off as “overrated” by many Blues supporters.

Sunday’s result, which Pulisic’s friend, New Orleans Pelicans SG Josh Hart was on hand for, was about as entertaining and interesting as 1-1 draw can get, but Pulisic didn’t have a great game against Leicester City, who came to Stamford Bridge with a great game plan.

Alexis Sanchez Reportedly Close to Joining Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan

ALEXIS sanchez

Lots of talk about the future of Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez the past few days, and with that, we’ve heard a lot of mixed messages. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Friday that the Chilean will be a part of the club’s plans this season, and that Alexis will “come good” at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile The Guardian claimed on Thursday that Inter Milan were growing confident that a season long loan deal for Sanchez would get done. And now it looks like it’s going to happen, and very soon.

Christian Pulisic Welcomes Pelicans Josh Hart to Chelsea Home Opener

Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic welcomed New Orleans Pelicans shooting guard Josh Hart to Stamford Bridge today for the Blues home opener against Leicester City. Hart is a Chelsea super supporter who played college basketball at Villanova, which is not far from Pulisic’s home town of Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Hart, a two time All-American in college, helped lead Villanova to a national title in 2016. However, he certainly has not been a “star” (as the tweet below indicates) in the NBA thus far. The former Los Angeles Laker, traded to New Orleans as part of the Anthony Davis trade, is actually more a “role player.”

Chicago Fire: A Realistic Look at their MLS Cup Playoff Chances

mls

After a couple recent Chicago Fire results, we’ve seen this popular talking point in heavy circulation: “they’re only three points out of a playoff spot.” While technically true, it’s a very misleading statement that leaves out a lot of critical information.

Entering tonight’s 2-0 win over Eastern Conference table topping Philadelphia Union, the Fire were in 10th place, three points behind 7th place Montreal Impact (holders of the last postseason qualification slot in the East), but the Fire had played one more match than Montreal (and hence had more opportunities to pick up points than the Impact have had).

Jurgen Klopp Has Hilarious Response to GK Adrian’s Bad Gaffe

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is often good for a fantastic sound bite and Saturday, following his side’s 2-1 win at Southampton, was certainly an example. Adrian, filling as the starting goalkeeper while Alisson recovers from a calf injury, made an enormous blunder today at the St. Mary’s that gifted a goal to the opposition.

With just seven minutes remaining, the Spaniard flubbed a clearance off a back-pass and kicked the ball at pressuring Saints striker Danny Ings, and the former Reds forward knocked the ball into the net. Luckily, Liverpool was up 2-0 and the goal didn’t impact the overall result of the match.
