United Players Condemn “disgusting,” “pathetic” Racial Abuse of Paul Pogba

Share

Manchester United have issued a club statement condemning the racist abuse perpetrated against midfielder Paul Pogba on social media. Additionally, some of the team’s star players have taken to Twitter and voiced their disgust with these developments.

United settled for a draw last night at Wolverhampton Wanderers, thanks in part (but obviously not thanks in full) to Pogba, instead of Marcus Rashford, taking a penalty kick, which he then missed. The decision to have Pogba take the PK, and the general protocol for how United decides who handles spot kick duty, was widely criticized last night. Club legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville was very critical of the situation.

With the exception of Illinois, obviously, one would not be all that shocked by the winner of the Big Ten West division. Most pundits are picking Wisconsin, Iowa or Nebraska, but the Purdue Boilermakers have one advantage on all of the rest of their division rivals.

In Rondale Moore, they have an electric player who can change the game in two phases, and no other Big Ten West division team can claim that. With the exception of Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor, there is no player in the division more likely to claim the most prestigious of the national individual awards.  That said, let’s preview the Purdue Boilermakers 2019 season.

Former Manchester United captain and current Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville is known for his strong takes on his former club, and most of the time, he’s spot on. Tonight was definitely one of those times as Neville hit out at United’s protocol for deciding who gets to take penalty kicks.

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.

By Eamon Cunningham

After three major matches with English tactician Frank Lampard in charge at Stamford Bridge, the Blues are still in search of their first victory of the new campaign.

They have only managed to secure 1 point, from 6 available points, and that has left the team in 15th position on the Premier League log. What’s more terrifying though is how Chelsea have dominated matches for certain periods, but heavily struggled to turn that possession into goals and three points.

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

Share

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

Share

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.
