first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal title winner Smith: I didn’t think Abraham would make itby Paul Vegas14 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal title winner Alan Smith admits Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has proved him wrong.Writing for the London Evening Standard, Smith stated: “Walking away from Besiktas’s Vodafone Park stadium in August, I seriously wondered whether Tammy Abraham was going to crack it as a Premier League striker.”In that Uefa Super Cup Final, the Chelsea substitute had fluffed a very good chance from close range before missing the decisive penalty in the shoot-out to hand Liverpool victory. Abraham looked devastated as his team-mates crowded round to try and console him. “Thank goodness I was wrong, for Abraham (right, training this week with England) has always appealed to this former centre-forward for the unselfish way he leads the line. Not many cover as much ground as this hard-working character.”On top, his tremendous physique and speed across the turf make him ideal for the top flight. All Abraham required was a bit of self belief, which, in strikers, can only come from scoring goals. ” last_img read more

Ohio State won by a final score of 84-53. (Photo by Ryan Young/Getty Images)On Thursday, we learned that members of the Ohio State football team were working on a dance routine for halftime of today’s OSU basketball game against Wisconsin. The performance has come and gone, so let’s see how things turned out: Our thoughts:Does Ezekiel Elliott wear his crop-top exclusively now? Seems like a poor decision with the winter that we’re having, but whatever works for him.We really appreciate that the players totally went for it. It looks like anyone who was hesitant about dancing in front of tens of thousands of fans stayed home.Aaron Parry: not the best rhythm, but the effort is there.Overall, solid job by the Buckeyes. They’re probably more likely to win another national championship on the gridiron than the dance floor, but they definitely brought it this afternoon.last_img read more

Gonzalez: Bradley & Altidore made TFC the easy choice

first_imgOmar Gonzalez is heading back to Major League Soccer, and credits a couple of his U.S. national team teammates with helping make the decision to join Toronto FC an easy one.  The defender won MLS Cup three times with the LA Galaxy prior to his move to Pachuca in January 2016 and has been plying his trade in Mexico since then. His move back to MLS will see him link up with one of the league’s leading clubs along with two longtime international teammates in the form of Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore.   Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? All three were starters on the fateful night in Trinidad that saw the USA miss out on the 2018 World Cup and they have all been consistent members of the national team since Gonzalez broke in with the side in 2010. Now they’ll be club teammates, and Gonzalez says conversations with both the forward and the midfielder helped him come to the conclusion that joining TFC was the right call.  “I know from speaking with Jozy in the past, how much he loves being in Toronto, loves playing for the club. That speaks volumes about a place,” the 30-year-old told reporters on a conference call.  “With Michael, we were roommates in last camp back in March. Mike was talking to me about what the possibilities could be – just us having a conversation – spoke really highly about the club, the city. It really made my decision easy.” Those conversations weren’t the only draw for Gonzalez, who points to the team’s recent history of success as a big draw.  ⭐️ A resume that speaks for itself ⭐️ pic.twitter.com/JMTirvAYLK— Toronto FC (@TorontoFC) June 3, 2019The 2018 season was a disappointment for TFC. Though the Canadian club did reach the final of the Concacaf Champions League, they never recovered from a poor start in the league and missed out on the playoffs.  Despite those struggles, Toronto has been a dominant force in MLS over the last half decade, reaching back-to-back MLS Cup finals and putting together a historic season to win the Supporters’ Shield and MLS Cup in 2017.  “For the past few years, I’ve been keeping a close eye on Toronto and when the opportunity arose to come back and they were first in the allocation list, it just made sense because they’re such strong team, have a streak of making it in late into the playoffs, and have aspirations of winning a Concacaf title. “That’s everything that I want to be a part of.”last_img read more

Jalen Hurts Has Reportedly Made A Decision On Whether He’ll Transfer From Alabama

first_imgJalen Hurts of the Alabama Crimson Tide passes the ball against the Washington Huskies during the 2016 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome.ATLANTA, GA – DECEMBER 31: Jalen Hurts #2 of the Alabama Crimson Tide passes the ball against the Washington Huskies during the 2016 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome on December 31, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)Ever since then-freshman Tua Tagovailoa led Alabama to a national championship in the second half of the College Football Playoff title game, Crimson Tide fans – and fans of other schools – have been wondering whether Jalen Hurts will be transferring ahead of the 2018 season. Well, we now have our answer.Hurts, who started every game for Alabama a year ago but was benched in the second half of the championship game, will reportedly be returning to Alabama this season. ESPN dropped the news on Tuesday.ESPN’s Sage Steele reports that Nick Saban told her that Hurts will be staying for the 2018 season. It looks like it has to do with more than just football too – he wants to get his degree from Alabama.Saban, however, told ESPN’s Sage Steele on Tuesday that Hurts told him he was staying at Alabama after the coach fielded a question about the quarterback’s future during SEC media days.“Jalen actually came to me and said … ‘I am going to be here. I am going to be here. I came here to get an education. I graduate in December, and I’m going to be here,’” Saban said Hurts told him.Hurts himself has not made such a declaration – but then again, he may not need to.Hurts has been one of the most dynamic players in the country the past few years, but Tagovailoa showed in one half of football why he could actually be an upgrade. It’s going to be one of the most fascinating quarterback competitions we’ve seen in quite some time.Either way, Alabama is stacked yet again heading into the 2018 season. They’re going to be the favorite in every game they play – regardless of which quarterback they start.last_img read more

Texas defeated Colorado 38-14. (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)The Texas Longhorns were unable to beat Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game and suffered their fourth loss of the season. But the Longhorns’ strong season has them in play for a major bowl game.ESPN just released its final bowl predictions that will no doubt leave Texas fans pleased.Two analysts for ESPN have the Longhorns playing their final game of 2018 in a New Year’s Six bowl game against another team that couldn’t get it done on Championship Saturday.ESPN analysts Mitch Sherman and Kyle Bonagura both have Texas scheduled to face off with SEC runner-up Georgia in the Allstate Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on January 1 at 8:45 p.m.The Bulldogs are coming off a heartbreaking 35-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game in which they blew a 14-point lead.There’s little doubt that QB Jake Fromm and company will be looking to get redemption against any team they come across in the New Year’s Six.Texas last appeared in the Sugar Bowl in 1995, a 28-10 loss to Virginia Tech. Their only win in the bowl game came in 1948 in a 27-7 win over Alabama.last_img read more

ESPN Releases Score Prediction For Purdue-Auburn

(Photo by Butch Dill/Getty Images)ESPN has released its prediction for Auburn’s Music City Bowl matchup against Purdue.The Boilermakers are coming off an emotional week, as head coach Jeff Brohm announced he’ll remain with the program instead of joining Louisville. On the other side, rumors are swirling about a potential coaching chance for the Tigers.While this is certainly the final collegiate game for Purdue quarterback David Blough, it might also be the last for Auburn gunslinger Jarrett Stidham.Although the Tigers have more talent on their roster, ESPN is rolling with the Boilermakers in its prediction.Motivation should be a factor here. Purdue is energized with coach Jeff Brohm staying at the school to keep building with stars like wide receiver Rondale Moore. Auburn, a preseason top-10 team, envisioned much grander goals and has plenty of tension swirling around its coaches. Brohm calls an aggressive game, Moore scores three times and quarterback David Blough sparkles in his final college game.Prediction: Purdue 35, Auburn 31Purdue and Auburn are set to kick off at 1:30 p.m. ET on Dec. 28 from Nissan Stadium.The game will be on ESPN.last_img read more

Urban Meyer Reportedly Close To Landing A New Job

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Former Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer is reportedly close to landing a new job in television.Meyer, who’s retired as the Buckeyes’ head football coach, is reportedly close to a deal with Fox Sports.Sporting News broke the news.From the report:Sports TV viewers may see a lot more of Urban Meyer on TV this year than they thought they would. Fox Sports is close to finalizing a deal to hire the former Ohio State head coach as its star college football analyst, sources tell Sporting News.Meyer, who won three national championships between Ohio State and Florida, is being given the choice to work either as a color commentator in the game booth or as a studio analyst at Fox, sources said. Citing serious health concerns, the 54-year-old Buckeyes coach retired after the 2019 Rose Bowl.A Fox Sports spokeswoman declined comment to Sporting News Thursday night.Meyer worked in television during his time away from football after leaving the Florida job, though that was with ESPN.The former Ohio State head coach has a couple of jobs lined up for his retirement.Meyer will be teaching a class in Ohio State’s business school and he’ll also be an assistant athletic director for the Buckeyes .The former Ohio State head coach’s wife, Shelley Meyer, is happy with his retirement plans. She wants him to be done with coaching.“It’s an end to something that we’ve been doing for a long, long, long time,” she told ESPN. “I’m sad, but I’m really happy for him because this is what needed to happen right now.“He’s been fun again. He’s back to the Urban I knew when he wasn’t so stressed out and anxious and having headaches.”It’s unclear at this point if Meyer will be working as an in-studio analyst for FOX or if he’ll be working games as an analyst.FOX has the rights several of the Big Ten’s biggest games. It’d be pretty cool to hear Meyer doing analyst work during a major Ohio State game (though fans of the opposing teams would probably not like it).Stay tuned.last_img read more

(Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)Free agency in the NFL has taken the sports world by storm, as several marquee players have changed teams. Considering that Penn State regularly produces top prospects in football, it’s no surprise that some former Nittany Lions were on the move.One of the first Penn State alums to change teams this offseason is Adrian Amos. The star safety signed a four-year deal with the Green Bay Packers, worth $37 million.Although Khalil Mack and Eddie Jackson receive most of the credit for Chicago’s elite defense in 2018, Amos was equally important. In fact, his versatility in the secondary is the reason teams were in line for his services.Packers are giving former Bears’ safety Adrian Amos a 4-year, $37 million deal that includes $14 million in year one and $21 million in first two years of deal, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 12, 2019Amos isn’t the only former Penn State product leaving his original team this free agency. It turns out that Cameron Wake is moving on from the Miami Dolphins.Wake has become the heart and soul of Miami’s defense for the last decade, but he’ll now take his talents to Tennessee. He’ll earn $23 million over the next three years with the Titans.The Titans have made multiple moves this offseason in an effort to improve their playoff chances.Cameron Wake and the @Titans have agreed to a three-year, $23 million deal.

BCCI to bear tax burden for 2021 T20 World Cup, 2023 World Cup if no tax exemption

first_img Press Trust of India DubaiMarch 3, 2019UPDATED: March 3, 2019 19:32 IST Representative Image (PTI Photo)HIGHLIGHTSBCCI has been asked to bear a tax liability to the tune of Rs 150 crore for future global eventsIndian board will have to pay the tax liability in case it is not able to get tax exemptionIncidentally, lack of tax exemption was one of the major reasons why the Formula One race was pulled out of IndiaThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been asked by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to bear a tax liability to the tune of USD 21 million (Rs 150 crore) for conducting future global events like the 2021 World T20 and 2023 ODI World Cup.The BCCI representatives have apparently asked for time till the completion of general elections, which has been granted by the parent body.The International Cricket Council gets tax exemption from member nations for conducting global events but it didn’t get any for the 2016 World T20 as Indian tax laws don’t allow any such leeway.Incidentally, the lack of tax exemption was one of the major reasons why the Formula One race was pulled out of India.The issue has persisted between the global body and its richest member board and also came up for discussion at the recent ICC quarterly meeting.It has been learnt that ICC chairman Shashank Manohar has told the BCCI that as per its rules, the Indian board will have to pay the tax liability in case it is not able to get tax exemption.”Mr Manohar has categorically said that tax exemption is something BCCI needs to figure out,” a BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.”Since this is about tax laws and it can change with time, the BCCI thinks it’s prudent to wait till the general elections get over and take it from there,” he said.There is a school of thought in the BCCI that they would ask the various sponsors to share the tax burden, which will be beneficial for all the parties.advertisement”There is a clause in the contract, where the sponsors may have to carry the burden of tax in case the hosting nation doesn’t have tax exemption laws. So BCCI will be within their rights to ask the various sponsors to share the burden,” the official said.When CoA chief Vinod Rai was asked about the issue, he said: “Tax laws are complicated. I will only comment on the issue once I am aware of all the details. However, I don’t think it’s an issue that can’t be sorted out.Also read | ICC to BCCI: Severing cricket ties with countries not our domainAlso Read | India, Australia teams arrive in Nagpur ahead of 2nd ODIAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

OnePlus 7 with pop-up selfie camera and triple rear cameras leaked in new renders

first_img Sneha Saha New DelhiMarch 4, 2019UPDATED: March 5, 2019 08:59 IST HIGHLIGHTSOnePlus 7 is expected to launch very soon.The new renders show the OnePlus 7 with pop-up selfie camera setup.The renders also show the OnePlus 7 with triple rear cameras.OnePlus 7 is expected to launch very soon. Some details about the phone have already been leaked in the past. Now, some new renders and a 360-degree video showing the phone have been leaked by a popular tipster Onleaks in association with website Pricebaba. The new renders go in line with the old ones and show the OnePlus 7 with pop-up selfie camera setup.The OnePlus 6 and the OnePlus 6T introduced the wide notch and waterdrop notch, respectively. The OnePlus 7 – as the rumours suggest – will not come with any sort of notch. To avoid the notch it seems OnePlus is introducing the pop-up selfie camera similar to what we have seen on the Vivo V15 Pro so far. In fact, the Oppo F11 Pro which is set to launch in India on March 5 will also come with pop-up camera on the front. The only difference in the pop-up between the OnePlus, Vivo and Oppo phone will be of the placement. In the Vivo V15 Pro, the pop-up sits on the extreme right, on Oppo, it will be on the middle, while the renders show that the OnePlus 7 will include the pop-up in the middle of extreme left and centre.The presence of pop-up should mean all screen display. But looks like that isn’t happening. The renders show the OnePlus 7 with a fair amount of chin at the bottom. Rumours suggest the OnePlus 7 will come with a big 6.5-inch display and we believe the company will use AMOLED panel for it. The renders also show the OnePlus 7 from the back side.advertisementThe renders show that the OnePlus 7 will not come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, in fact, include an in-display fingerprint sensor on the front. The renders also show the OnePlus 7 with triple rear cameras. This is for the first time a OnePlus phone is said to come with three cameras on the rear panel which will be paired with a LED sensor.During the Mobile World Congress 2019 OnePlus CEO Pete Lau shut all rumours and confirmed that the next OnePlus phone will not come with wireless charging as the company doesn’t feel the need for it as of now. The renders also show the OnePlus 7 to come alert slider and home button on the right side of the phone while the volume rocker will be on the left. The pictures also show the phone with USB type-C port at the bottom next to which is the speaker grill. Past rumours had suggested that OnePlus 7 will come with Snapdragon 855 processor and Warp Charge 30 fast charging.ALSO READ | 5G smartphones are all over MWC 2019, but you should not be excited just yetALSO READ | OnePlus hasn’t forgotten OnePlus 3, will rollout Android Pie update very soonALSO READ | Meizu teases its OnePlus 6T killer for India, rumoured to sport Snapdragon 855 chipsetGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Amitabh Bachchan takes a sly dig at ICC boundary rule after England World Cup win

first_imgAmitabh Bachchan takes a sly dig at ICC boundary rule after England World Cup winAmitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to mock International Cricket Council (ICC)’s boundary rule, after the final World Cup match between England and New Zealand.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiJuly 16, 2019UPDATED: July 16, 2019 18:34 IST Amitabh Bachchan on England’s World Cup winBollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the latest to join the list of people criticising the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the “boundary rule” which helped England win their first men’s World Cup. On Sunday, two dramatic run-outs in the final over of England’s innings took the game into a Super Over with the scores tied on 241 after the end of 50 overs against New Zealand at Lord’s.However, with the Super Over also ending in a tie, the winner of the showpiece event was decided by the number of boundaries scored. England scored 26 boundaries in total in the entire duration of the match as compared to 17 by the Black Caps and were thus crowned as champions.Bachchan took to Twitter to mock the ICC rule and said in Hindi, “You have Rs 2,000, I have Rs 2,000. You have one note of 2,000; I have four notes of 500. Who is richer? ICC: The one who has four notes of 500 is richer.”T 3227 – 2000 , 2000 ,2000 , 500 4 …???ICC – 500 4 .. #IccrulesEf~NSAmitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) July 15, 2019Actor-turned-politician Paresh Rawal also slammed the sport’s governing body and tweeted: Instead of changing M.S. Dhoni gloves, the stupid ICC should have changed their super over rules.”Instead of changing @msdhoni gloves , the stupid @ICC should have changed their super over rules !!!!Paresh Rawal (@SirPareshRawal) July 15, 2019Earlier, many former cricketers like Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Brett Lee, Yuvraj Singh and others criticised the ICC for the boundary rule.ALSO READ | ICC World Cup 2019: Amitabh Bachchan to Sonakshi Sinha, B-Town reacts to India’s loss to New ZealandadvertisementALSO READ | Amitabh Bachchan wants ICC World Cup 2019 to be shifted to India.
