About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Pallister: Arsenal a winnable game for patched up Man Utdby Paul Vegas25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Gary Pallister sees tonight’s clash with Arsenal as a winnable.United will host the Gunners with a patched up XI.But Pallister says: “I think both clubs are in a similar situation. You just don’t know what to expect of the sides. Both managers are trying to implement their styles and get the best out of the teams but it’s not happening on a consistent basis, so I think both sets of fans will feel the same. “United have got to use the negative feeling and try to make it into a positive; roll up your sleeves and show you’re not a bad side. It’s not City or Liverpool, it’s a club they’ll be competing with at the end of the season. At Old Trafford, they’ve got to be trying to win.”He also insisted: “With Arsenal, you’re not quite sure what you’re going to get at the moment either – Unai Emery has been there a season and they’ve not been terrific but they can also look like the Arsene Wenger team. You don’t know which team will turn up. What better game for the United players to react than Arsenal.”Gary Pallister was speaking to BonusCodeBets

87654321abcdefgh “It’s going to be a complicated game,” said the grandmaster Judit Polgár, providing the official match commentary.And indeed it was going to be — for the players and your humble chess correspondent. My parents were in town, my sister was sweating over an oven, and forgotten provisions had to be procured. A table had to be set. Mashed potatoes had to be eaten. I tore away from the match and headed into the city.Having nervously missed a handful of moves on my train ride, I ascended from the serviceless subway station in time to witness something special from Carlsen, the defending world champion who had yet to do much special at all. One grandmaster told me his move was “phenomenal.” Another tweeted that it was “incredible.” A chess writer called it “sensational.” A chess instructor called it “fascinating.”So just what was it that Carlsen did with the black pieces here? It was pawn to b5.Erwin l’Ami, the grandmaster who called it “incredible,” described the idea behind the move, which ostensibly loses a pawn for Carlsen, as follows: Once Carlsen pushes that pawn to b5, Caruana can win it by moving his pawn to b6. (That may not appear to be a legal move, but it’s a special capture known as en passant, in which a pawn can diagonally capture another pawn that has just hopped up two squares next to it.) Carlsen could then take the rook on a3 with his rook, and Caruana could take that rook with his knight. Carlsen could then push his pawn to f3, encroaching further into white’s territory. Two pawn captures then ensue on that same square, followed by Caruana capturing there with his bishop. And then Carlsen could bring his knight into the action on e5. The result of that hypothetical line would have looked like this — a “huge attack” on Caruana’s king.
Junior guard Shannon Scott (right) drives to the hoop during a game against Delaware Dec. 18 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 76-64. Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerThe beat rolls on for the No. 3-ranked Ohio State men’s basketball team.OSU (14-0, 1-0) earned its first Big Ten win Tuesday, topping Purdue (10-4, 0-1), 78-69, in West Lafayette, Ind.A back-and-forth affair in the opening 20 minutes, OSU took a 34-33 lead into halftime after senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. hit a lay up just before the buzzer. Fellow senior guard Aaron Craft fired a pass to Smith Jr. from under the hoop on the play, one of Craft’s six assists in the half.After the break, the Buckeyes turned to junior forward LaQuinton Ross to carry them to victory.The Boilermakers center, sophomore A.J. Hammons, was a force inside, finishing the game with 18 points and 16 rebounds, but couldn’t match Ross, who poured in a career-high 25 points. He also collected 12 rebounds in the game.OSU’s big men, junior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald, combined for 21 minutes played and both picked up their third fouls in the first six minutes of the second half. That caused OSU coach Thad Matta to play Ross down low and guard Hammons.Ross played in the post for a majority of the second half, as Matta chose to play with the smaller lineup while OSU added to its lead.Williams and McDonald combined for only six points and four rebounds in the win.A tip-in by Hammons with just 1:38 left cut OSU’s lead to 69-64, but free throws by Craft, Ross, Smith Jr. and junior guard Shannon Scott helped put the game away.Craft finished with seven points, 10 assists, eight rebounds and four steals. Scott and Smith Jr. finished with 18 and 14 points, respectively.Up next, OSU is scheduled to return to the Schottenstein Center to take on Nebraska (8-4, 0-0) Jan. 4, 2014. Tipoff is set for noon.
Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) hands the ball off to senior forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State (10-4, 2-0 Big Ten) begins the true Big Ten season on Jan. 4, but before then, the Buckeyes have one final nonconference game against Miami (OH) Saturday.The last two seasons, it was a challenge for Ohio State to escape the nonconference slate without a bad loss on its resume. Although the Buckeyes don’t have a signature nonconference win, avoiding a gargantuan letdown against the Redhawks (7-5) will end the nonconference schedule without a major blemish.The game tips at noon at the Schottenstein Center on ESPNU. Here’s what to expect.Projected startersMiami:G — Jake Wright — Redshirt junior, 6-foot-4, 202 lbs., 8.8 ppg, 1.2 rpg, 0.5 apgG — Darrian Ringo — Junior, 6-foot-2, 173 lbs., 8.6 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 7.9 apgG — Nike Sibande — Freshman, 6-foot-3, 178 lbs., 14.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 0.9 apgF — Dalonte Brown — Freshman, 6-foot-7, 196 lbs., 7.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 0.3 apgF — Logan McLane — Senior, 6-foot-9, 225 lbs., 10.3 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 0.9 apgOhio State:G — C.J.

Sibande is shooting 37 percent from deep and 44.4 percent from the field and plays roughly 31 minutes per game. If the Redhawks are to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the year, Sibande will need to have the best game of his career.Miami is statistically one of the worst offensive teams in the country. Per 100 possessions, the Redhawks score just 95 points, according to KenPom, which ranks 312th in the country. They also turn the ball over on more than 23 percent of their possessions, ranking 322nd out of 351 teams.In its two games against major conference opponents Missouri and DePaul, Miami attempted an average of more than 28 3-pointers and allowed the opponent to shoot 63 and 54 percent in effective field goal rate.Outside of the first half against North Carolina, Ohio State has shot the ball well for the past month. Saturday against the Redhawks should be no different.What to expectHoltmann said Friday before the Miami matchup that his team didn’t play well through ball screens last Saturday against North Carolina. The Buckeyes will see plenty of that Saturday with the Redhawks trying to free Sibande on nearly every possession.“Our ball-screen defense can be improved,” he said. “That’s going to be tested tomorrow. They have an outstanding point guard. Really good shooting around him.”As mentioned before, this is Ohio State’s final nonconference game. Holtmann has said for a couple weeks that it has been a main focus for the team to finish the nonconference schedule strong and enter the Big Ten season with any sort of momentum. Ohio State, ranked No. 46 by KenPom, has an opponent it is vastly superior than to work on any shortcomings it had against the Tar Heels.“Our turnover percentage would certainly be one,” Holtmann said. “We can continue to improve defensively across the board … The biggest thing is you have a chance to finish the nonconference and feel really good about it. And that’s what’s in front of us here tomorrow.”If Miami’s past games against high-major opponents are any indication, Ohio State’s 48 percent second-half shooting against North Carolina will carry over to Saturday and redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop will be the difference maker, again, with his size and length.Prediction:Ohio State wins 87-63
Andres Iniesta was left struggling for words after sealing his ninth La Liga title for Barcelona on SundayThe captain had announced that he will be leaving his beloved Barcelona at the end of the season in an emotional press conference last week and was, once more, left struggling to find the right words in light of their latest La Liga triumph.An early goal from Philippe Coutinho looked to have set Ernesto Valverde’s side on their way against Deportivo La Coruna with Lionel Messi adding a second later on.However, the struggling Deportivo responded with two goals from Lucas Perez and Emre Colak levelling the score between the sides.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.But two late goals from Messi ensured that the Catalan side would emerge as the winners in a 4-2 thriller.“It’s an indescribable feeling, on a personal level and as a sportsperson, there are no words when you receive so much love from people and even more so in difficult moments for them [as Deportivo were relegated],” said Iniesta, as reported on Marca.“It’s an eternal thank you because it’s very beautiful. This [move] isn’t a change of opinion, but I am making the most honest decision for myself and my club.“To finish the season with these feelings before the World Cup and with another adventure ahead, I wish it were eternal. I would like this to never end, but everything has its beginning and its end.”
Nice have set the asking price for Mario Balotelli at €10 million.After three seasons, 51 appearances and 33 goals, Mario Balotelli is nearing the end of his stay in Nice. The French outfit might have contemplated keeping the maverick striker on its roster until he failed to show up for the first training session with new head coach Patrick Vieira (The Sun).“We expected him at training today,”“What’s certain is he wasn’t there and that [his absence] wasn’t planned. We’ll wait and see what happens.”What happened was that Nice officially put Balotelli on the trade block, setting the asking price at €10 million (Calcio Mercato).Corini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Despite the Italian’s controversial past and long history of disobedience, there will be clubs willing to take the risk.According to Sky Sports, interest from Olympique Marseille might have been behind his absence at the beginning of training camp.“We’ll see, it’s too early. He is a player who creates emotion. He always gives himself 100 per cent. He can marry very well with the Marseille mentality. The Marseillais are like that. They are hot, and Mario is hot. It is like that.” – Mino Raiola, Balotelli’s agentExpect an update on the situation in the coming days.
