The Overall Vision for the County Cricket 2020

Share

The inter-county cricket is known to have started since the early 18th century. These matches mainly involve teams from England and Wales. It was only in the 19th century when county matches were then divided into two.

The first is the County Championship that involved 18 county clubs and the Minor Counties Championship that mainly involved county clubs from England. Prior to 1988, all matches were only scheduled for three days. Each match would usually last for six hours and the interval hours.

Man United Finally Find Front Line Consistency in James, Rashford, Martial

Share

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first took the wheel at Manchester United, he found that his best attacking trio consisted of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard. Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez were not a part of that first choice front line, and now both have moved on to Inter Milan.

United did not replace either of those players, who were both essentially a bust at Old Trafford. However, they did acquire winger Daniel James from Swansea City this summer, a pick-up that flew under the radar at the time. Today, in 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, we saw United play some exciting, energetic, great paced attacking football.

Manchester United News: Martial, Rashford, McTominay

Share

Congratulations to Manchester United, who won 3-1 against Brighton & Hove Albion today, in a match that they easily should have won 5-1. Marcus Rashford scored, but he had some missed opportunities and easily should have had a brace, if not a hat trick in this one.

Rashford has brilliant potential, but he needs to work on finishing more clinically. He’s had his best when alongside Anthony Martial (two assists today), whose presence takes his game up a couple notches. This sequence here below is making the internet rounds; for obvious reasons.

Ashley Young Says Teammate Anthony Martial Deserves France Call-Up

Share

Manchester United team captain Ashley Young will get his break started early, as he is suspended for tomorrow’s Premier League fixture at home against Brighton & Hove Albion. The match precedes the final international break of 2019, and reigning World Cup champion France will resume competition without United forward Anthony Martial as part of their roster.

Young thinks that is an absolutely wrong decision on the part of French manager Didier Deschamps, noting the fine form of the French forward and the huge difference Martial has made when he’s been in the lineup.

Purdue Rallies to Victory, Gives Northwestern an Absolute Gut Punch

Share

J.D. Dellinger was the hero for Purdue in an ending that was so exciting and interesting, it could have been written by J.D. Salinger. Purdue’s 24-22 come from behind win at Northwestern, decided by Dellinger’s 39 yard field goal in the final seconds, was as entertaining as one could expect for $2- that’s how low a price you could find tickets online for this one.

It was the nicest weather day the Chicagoland area has seen in a week and is forecasted to have for another week, absolutely perfect for a college football Saturday, but the sun is definitely not shining right now on the Northwestern football program. The Wildcats went up early 14-0, and they scored six more points today than they did all of October, but it just wasn’t enough.

No One Can Afford Kylian Mbappe, Says Jurgen Klopp

So much for that Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool FC transfer narrative.

Wait, what Mbappe to Liverpool was a thing?

Apparently, yes that was a transfer rumor floating about; as ridiculous as the concept sounds. It’s a moot point anyway as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ruled it out during his news conference ahead of the blockbuster fixture this weekend at Manchester City.

Christian Pulisic Continues Hot Streak, Proving Early Doubters Wrong

Share

Patience is a virtue. So many were quick to write off Christian Pulisic as his start at Chelsea began nightmarishly. He just couldn’t get into the team at first, and the depth chart situation looked bleak as the Blues are/were stacked at winger. However, Pulisic produced when given the chance as he racked up the assists when called upon.

Now he’s getting the goals to go along with it. He’s absolutely on fire right now. Capt. America scored his fifth goal in three games today, converting in the 79′ of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Ander Herrera Implies Business, Not Football Comes First at Man United

Share

For the #WoodwardOut and #GlazersOut crowd, the commentary of former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera will be music to their ears. For anyone who takes the stance that MUFC is a more or less a corporate branding/merchandising/marketing organization that also plays some football, Herrera’s comments will essentially back up your stance.

It’s kind of like a whistleblower in a way. Ander Herrera was certainly a man who played for the badge when he was at Old Trafford. No one took the Manchester derby rivalry more seriously and he won the club’s player of the year award during his stint there. Now having moved on to Paris Saint-Germain, transferring over on a free this past summer, he spoke about the differences between PSG and MUFC.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Share

Ready for the Brandon Williams show, Manchester United supporters? The youngster has racked some nice statistics and looked impressive in the Europa League competition. The promising academy graduate should likely start on Sunday against Brighton & Hove Albion, as United look to get a Premier League win before the next international break ensues.

Williams is pressed into action as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is forced down the depth chart at left back. Depending on last minute fitness situations, he may be forced to play third choice guys in midfield and defense as well. The good news is that maybe United have found something, a formula that kind of works in their 3-0 win at Partizan Belgrade last night.

United vs Brighton Team News: Maguire, McTominay, Lindelof, Webster

Share

Manchester United seems to have righted the ship, at least a little bit, in Europe as they have conceded just one goal in their last three Europa League matches. At home though, still a shambles…at least when they’re playing someone not named Chelsea.

Sunday sees the Red Devils welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Old Trafford, and who knows what MUFC team will show up for this one. On paper, United should win easily but how many times have we said that this season, only to see the result be a draw or loss? With that spirit in mind, let’s take a look at the team news for this one.
