first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bayern Munich chiefs Kovac, Salihamidzic concerned after Liverpool drawby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich coach Niko Kovac believes getting Liverpool in the Champions League round of 16 is the toughest draw they could land.The Bundesliga champions will travel to Anfield for the first leg on February 19 with the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.Kovac said, “Liverpool got to the final last year, they’re top of the Premier League and one of the favourites for the Champions League.“We’re FC Bayern München, though, and I’m sure Liverpool know they’ve got to come here to Munich for the second leg. The chances are 50-50. We’ll see what happens. I’m very confident we’ll get through.”Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic added: “They’re the team of the hour, they’re the league leaders in England.“They play good football, they’re very physical and they’re full of energy.“You need two good days. They were in the final last year, they’re a top side, it’s a tough one but these are the challenges that you look forward to as a player and that you have to overcome in your career.”Winger Arjen Robben was also gushing in his praise of Jurgen Klopp’s side.“It’s an epic match. Liverpool are a super team who have gone through a great development,” Robben told Bayern’s website.“They have big players, a lot of pace and creativity in attack and they’re a real unit. The atmosphere will be phenomenal. It’s just a great draw. It’s a dream for every player to be involved in a game like this.”However, Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer claimed that the Reds can still be “vulnerable” defensively having shipped seven goals in the group stage.“They’re having a very good season and we know they were in the Champions League final last year,” Neuer said.“They certainly won’t be delighted with the draw, either. They can counter quickly and they’re dangerous in front of goal, but they’re also vulnerable, as we’ve seen, and they’ll be up against a good Bayern attack.” last_img read more

But I started to join the pros. Arsenal is a great club, but I needed playing time. I had to play, and I preferred to leave. “It was difficult to stay at Arsenal in the sense that there were big names and a new coach (Unai Emery). I spoke with Per Mertesacker who made me a little hesitant.”He really wanted me to stay. But I felt that the best solution was to leave. At that time I did not yet have contact with Sion, but with other clubs. I was contacted by Sion fifteen days after my decision to leave. I had a preference to return to France but despite some contacts it is Sion who had my preference.” last_img read more

Obviously the penalty changed it all and we’re going home with no points but it shouldn’t be a wake-up call. “We’ve been performing since the start of the season outstanding so there’s no reason for panic. “The majority in the game we played well, we put them under pressure and we created opportunities on the break. “There’s a lot of positive things apart from the result. We have to try to win our other games and we now focus on Chelsea.” last_img read more

They scored four goals, they had other chances and I think we only created one in the first ten minutes of the game and one in the last minute.”In the second half we lost all the moments [which decided the match].”If you want to continue playing in all competitions you have to use your whole squad, and we played with [experienced] players. I repeat, Oxford made it tough and after that [we perhaps showed a] lack of belief that these games are always very difficult for the teams who are in the better league.”Of course for the fans who came to Wimbledon, and to Oxford today, it’s not the best way to answer them. Football is like this, unfortunately it was a very bad night for some players and we’ll try to recover in our next game in the Premier League.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Slightly overshadowed by a few disappointing chants, which could be clearly heard on the pitch, but we showed a great response and ultimately we let the football do the talking.”I think the protocol was effective, and there was less chanting after that. We made a decision at half-time to come out and play the game, which we thought was the right thing to do.” last_img read more

Because I play in Norwich, it’s not easy for everyone to see me play much, but this is going to be good. I can’t wait.

Hopefully I can just keep the progression going and playing and performing with my club.”The target here with England is to keep pushing and hopefully reach the senior squad one day, but to do that I need to do well with the U21s and we’ve got some good games coming up.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgOklahoma State honors 2001 plane crash victims.On January 27th, 2001, the Oklahoma State basketball program suffered an unthinkable tragedy when eight members of its family (two players and six staffers and broadcasters) died in a plane crash while returning from a game in Colorado. In the years since that traumatic event, the 10 people who died in the crash –including the pilot and co-pilot–have been memorialized with a banner hanging in the rafters of OSU’s home court, Gallagher-Iba Arena, and a memorial located inside the Athletics Center. Also, each year, at the home game closest to the date of the crash, Oklahoma State honors the 10. This post from the Cowboys’ official athletics Instagram account has all the details on the ceremony before tonight’s game against Baylor: Very touching and appropriate tribute for those whose lives were inexplicably cut short, and it’s incredible to think 14 years has passed since this tragedy happened.last_img read more

first_imgMelo Trimble hits game-winning three-pointer as time expires.Melo TrimbleWe just had a Big Ten thriller in Madison. No. 3 Maryland defeated Wisconsin 63-60 on a long three-pointer by point guard Melo Trimble with 1.2 seconds remaining.Trimble’s triple came after Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig buried a three of a his own to knot the score at 60. Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon elected not to signal for a timeout, instead trusting his All-American point guard to win the game.Good decision.  That shot is the definition of long range. Note ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich saying “Too late” in the background. Dakich thought Trimble took too long before trying to attack.Looks like he knew what he was doing.last_img

(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)The Iowa football team has been working tirelessly to attract the top recruits from the state. Despite stiff competition from in-state rival Iowa State, it appears the Hawkeyes’ efforts are paying off.According to the Quad-City Times, three-star linebacker Ethan Hurkett has verbally committed to Iowa football. Hurkett then addressed the decision in an interview with the publication.“Iowa is where I’ve always wanted to go, and when the offer came, I really didn’t have to think too long about it,” Hurkett said. “I talked about it with my parents, but the conversation was pretty short. They offered. I said ‘yes’ and that was it.”Per the report, Iowa was not the only top program recruiting Hurkett. He had interest from Notre Dame, Iowa State, Northwestern, and Purdue among others as well.Hurkett’s commitment gives Iowa three of the top four in-state recruits from the Class of 2020, adding to a six-man class so far. Combined with four-star quarterback Deuce Hogan, the Hawkeyes currently have the No. 17 ranked recruiting class nationally and the No. 5 class in the Big Ten Conference.Per 247Sports, No. 2 in-state recruit Josh Volk is projected to choose the Hawkeyes as well.Iowa State, on the other hand, was only able to get the fifth- and sixth-ranked recruits, though are the favorites to land the seventh.As for the Hawkeyes’ upcoming recruiting class, The Dispatch-Argus also revealed that wide receiver Alec Kritta will be joining Iowa football as a walk-on.Iowa’s Class of 2019 is ranked No. 40 nationally, and No. 9 in the Big Ten by 247Sports.[Quad-City Times]last_img read more

Paul Finebaum Believes 1 Major Coach Is Seriously On The Hot Seat

Posted on by

first_img The Tigers had a disappointing 2018 season, one that nearly resulted in the ousting of Malzahn, according to reports. If the same happens in 2019, he’ll likely be done, says Finebaum.Finebaum said on ESPN’s Get Up! this week that he thinks Malzahn will “likely be gone” without a “significant season.”Auburn does have talent, though.“I happen to think top to bottom as a football team, particularly on the defensive side of the ball — and also offensively with some of the weapons they have got coming back, which is virtually everybody, this may be the best top-to-bottom team Gus Malzahn has had,” ESPN’s Tom Luginbill said, per AL.com.Finebaum isn’t quite as high on the Tigers, however.“(Luginbill) is looking at it analytically,” Finebaum added. “He’s as good as anyone there is, but the problem is psychological. (Auburn) is a slight favorite against Oregon, but you have a brand-new quarterback. Oregon has an experienced quarterback. If Oregon gets on the roll and beats them, the pressure becomes intense.“Gus Malzahn was nearly fired last season with 35 million in buyout money hanging in the balance. For as talented as they may be, if they don’t gel well, he’s not going to have an answer for the schedule.”Auburn will get a chance to make a statement right away.The Tigers begin the year on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 7:30 p.m. E.T. against Oregon.

(Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)It’s been a rough start to the 2019 season for Manny Diaz and his Miami Hurricanes. They’re off to a 1-2 start with that win coming against Bethune-Cookman, and look almost nothing like the team once projected to contend in the ACC.On top of all of that, it looks like Miami is about to lose one of its top recruits from last year.Taking to Twitter on Friday, Canes offensive lineman Cleveland Reed Jr. announced he was entering the transfer portal.Officially in the transfer portalThough entering the portal doesn’t mean he’s leaving school, StateOfTheU reported that he is no longer listed on the team’s website. Officially in the transfer portal— D1 cleve (@55clevelandreed) September 20, 2019Coming out of high school in 2018, Reed was a four-star recruit and the No. 259 overall prospect in the country. Per 247Sports, he was the No. 12 offensive guard and the No. 48 prospect from the state of Florida.Reed redshirted his first year in Miami, but failed to break into the starting lineup this year. He appeared briefly in Miami’s win over Bethune-Cookman, but not at all in their two prior games.Fortunately for Miami, they’re doing an excellent job recruiting for the Class of 2020 and beyond. They should be able to replace a player of his caliber soon.last_img read more

The Porton Pisco Sour has become a popular cocktail. 4. Porton is made at the Hacienda la Caravedo in Inca, Peru. The Manual Spirit Awards 2019: Redux The Best Blended Scotch Whiskies to Add to Your Collection Editors’ Recommendations center_img When settling in at your local bar, you may have noticed a new ingredient on the drink list: pisco. What is pisco, you ask? It is a grape-based, distilled Peruvian liquor that has been around since the 17th century. The liquor was very popular in the United States during the 19th century, especially in San Francisco where the Pisco Punch was all the rage. However, during and after Prohibition the liquor fell out of flavor. But it is back now. Whether it is sipped on its own or part of increasingly popular cocktails such as the Pisco Sour, Peru’s finest spirit is well on it’s way into the consciousness of discerning minds in the bar and cocktail lounge industry.One of the leading brands of this pisco resurgence is Portón. Founded by multitalented entrepreneur Brent Kallop and overseen by master distiller Johnny Schuler, Portón has become the best selling, ultra-premium brand of pisco in the United States over the past several years. Schuller is an integral part of Portón’s creation from the harvesting of grapes grown in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, to the distilling and bottling processes, which takes place at the Hacienda la Caravedo in Inca, Peru—the oldest distillery in the Americas.Portón is classified as a mosto verde pisco, which means that is made from a blend of grape varietals that have not been completely fermented. Mosto Verde piscos are viewed as the highest grade of the Peruvian spirit. Portón is comprised of a blend of Quebranta, Torontel and Alibilla grapes that, once partially fermented and distilled create floral and fruity tasting notes with hints of grassy herbs and just the slightest touch of white pepper.We at The Manual have been enjoying Portón since the dog days of this past summer. Our full-fledged recommendation is to get a group of friends together, buy a bottle of Portón and mix it over ice with ginger beer and muddled lime. It is a simple cocktail, but your knowledge of cutting edge spirits will impress your friends and the flavors will leave your taste buds satisfied.Now, go forth and try Portón pisco to your heart’s content, secure in the knowledge that The Manual has your back in all matters drink related.
