We know when we say ‘one game at a time’ some people might consider it football talk, but that really is the way for us. It is the philosophy that has got us to where we are currently.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

‘Ozil’s time is up and could to go to China’

first_imgMesut Ozil needs to accept his “time is up and he must move on”, says Charlie Nicholas, with the Arsenal playmaker tipped for a possible switch to China.The World Cup winner is facing questions regarding his future after slipping out of favour under Unai Emery.A lucrative contract penned in February 2018 and a lack of contribution on the field is considered to be causing those at Emirates Stadium unnecessary problems. 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? Removing Ozil from the fold could help to resolve some of those issues, with Nicholas suggesting that he could attract interest similar to that being shown in West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic.The former Arsenal striker told Sky Sports, with Aaron Ramsey also edging towards the exits in north London: “I think they should get rid of Ozil.“It is the people running the club who gave him the wage, but it looks silly letting Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere go.“Hopefully Juventus will take Ramsey immediately and Arsenal get some money for him. Ozil does not fit Emery’s plans, so you get the agent in and look for him to go elsewhere.“Ozil has amazing talent and is popular in the dressing room but his time is up and he must move on. If the Chinese clubs are interested in Arnautovic then they should be interested in Ozil.“He will not want to sit on the bench but the common-sense consensus is finding a club and looking to sell him.”Aaron Ramsey Arsenal 2018-19Another ex-Arsenal star, Paul Merson, also believes that a decision needs to be made on Ozil.He considers goings on at the Emirates to be “a joke”, with Ramsey being allowed to walk away on a free transfer while Emery is told he has no transfer funds for reinforcements.“If this was in a book, you’d throw the book in the sea as it would be so unbelievable for such a big football club,” said Merson.“You shouldn’t let £50 million players’ contracts run down, it is a joke. The way the club is being run at the moment and the players that have been let go, I worry for Arsenal.“I think the Arsene Wenger contract talk dominated the agenda at Arsenal so much, the club took their eye off sorting out contracts for their key players. A top football club shouldn’t be allowing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere to leave on the cheap.“Arsenal won’t be able to buy anyone until they can get Ozil off the books.“If Arsenal want to attract the big players for £50-60m then those players will want to be on Ozil’s wages. Arsenal can’t afford to do that. Then players will look elsewhere.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Oklahoma Commit Spencer Rattler Is Now The Only 5-Star Quarterback In 2019 Class

first_imgOklahoma commit Spencer Rattler sets to throw.Former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was one of the best signal callers in recent college football history during his Sooners career. Lincoln Riley shouldn’t have trouble attracting other quarterbacks, and in 2019 commit Spencer Rattler, they have the top guy in the class coming in next year.Rattler has been committed to the Sooners since last June. It doesn’t seem like he’s wavering from that choice, with his profile continuing to rise.After many of the top players competed at The Opening finals, 247Sports has updated its rankings. That is big news for Rattler.He was already the top-ranked quarterback in the class. Now he has received his fifth star.God is good. 5 ⭐️ https://t.co/GTTb0z1f5i— Spencer Rattler (@SpencerRattler) July 12, 2018Spencer Rattler should continue what can become a strong line of Oklahoma QBs.Mayfield solidified the position after his transfer from Texas Tech. This season, Kyler Murray is expected to have a big season before he turns his attention to baseball full-time.Austin Kendall will also contend for the job after this season, if he cannot beat out Murray, the expected starter, this season. He is a former four-star recruit as well.247Sports’ composite rankings have Kendall as the No. 26 player in the country overall, and No. 1 at his position and in Arizona. Last month, the site’s Greg Biggins wrote that he was the most impressive passer at the Elite 11 Finals:Three quarterbacks separated themselves by consistently being in the top group of signal callers and Rattler was the most dynamic for us. He’s a play maker who has the ability to beat a defense with his arm or his legs and has a presence about him that should make him a natural leader in college.Like Mayfield, Rattler is a confident player, who says he can make all the throws. As long as Riley is there, the Sooners offensive should keep humming.last_img read more

January 15 also happens to be Makar Sankranti. On Tuesday, Kohli was named man-of-the-match for his 112-ball 104 as India stormed to a six-wicket win over Australia in the second ODI in Adelaide to draw level in three-match series.So what’s the secret to Virat Kohli’s tryst with January 15? There is an astrological explanation to this eye-catching statistic, as it appears.Jyothishacharya Pandit Arunesh Kumar Sharma explains the phenomenon behind Virat Kohli’s three centuries on January 15 and the stars are related.Virat Kohli was born on November 5, 1988. The birth date is 5 and the fraction is 6. These numbers are from Mercury and Venus respectively. In their horoscope, the fortune of these two planets is called a great change. Both planets are the masters of karma and profit. In such a way, they receive special grace of Mercury-Venus.Together these two planets are married in Shani Kundali. This is what makes Kohli different.Watch the full highlights from another ODI masterclass by Virat Kohli – his 39th(!) ODI hundred! pic.twitter.com/L2d2fciApmcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 16, 2019In 2017, Kohli had led India to a three-wicket win over England in the first ODI of the three-match series on January 15. Chasing a mammoth target of 351 for victory, Kohli paired with Kedar Jadhav to add 200 runs for the fifth wicket as India took 48.1 overs to win the match.Kohli had top-scored in that match with 122 runs while Jadhav made 120 as India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. 15 i.e. 6 and 15 01 2017 i.e. 8 points they got a coin of 122 or 5. The planet Venus, Saturn and Mercury are aligned together.advertisementOn January 15 in 2018, Kohli scored 153 against South Africa in a Test match, which again was his first hundred of the year and came on January 15. He got double 9 with 6, that is, 6 points in total.On January 15 in 2019, Kohli top-scored with 104 runs as India chased down a challenging total at the Adelaide Oval in the second ODI. The number of Mercury 5. 15 is the sixth point of Venus. The total of 15. 01. 2019 is 1. This gives him clear success.On January 15 in 2020, 2021, and 2022, Kohli is also getting a chance of joining Chandra, Guru and Venus. These dates are positive even in horoscopes on the basis of his birth date. If there are matches in these dates, Kohli can definitely score centuries.Kohli started his first-class career in 2006, i.e. the sixth year of this century. If the same sequence of points is understood, then he will play in international cricket at least until 2024.Also Read | MS Dhoni talks a lot while batting and that helps: Virat KohliAlso Read | Virat Kohli will score 100 international hundreds if he stays fit: Mohammed AzharuddinFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Moto G7 Plus leaked again, this time revealing 27W fast charging support, red colour option

first_imgMoto G7 Plus leaked again, this time revealing 27W fast charging support, red colour optionA 27W fast charging support and 16MP camera with OIS are a few interesting features coming to the Moto G7 Plus. The Moto G7 series is set to launch in Brazil on February 7.advertisement Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiJanuary 31, 2019UPDATED: January 31, 2019 10:48 IST Picture Courtesy: TudoCelularHIGHLIGHTSThe G7 Plus will come with a 27W TurboPower fast charging supportThe glass back panel is shown in a deep red colourThe 16MP main camera on the back will get OIS supportThere have been so many leaks and reports on the Moto G7 series that almost nothing is left to the imagination. Earlier this week, some hands-on images of the Moto G7 Plus leaked out that showed off the waterdrop display and dual cameras. Now, we have yet another set of leaked images that give us a few more key details about the upcoming phone. It seems the G7 Plus will come with a 27W TurboPower fast charging support, which is quite interesting.A 27W fast charging support would be a major jump compared to current Moto phones that support TurboPower charging. This info is mentioned on the sticker on the Moto G7 Plus taken out of the retail box, leaked by TudoCelular. The box and unit shown in the live images seem pretty legit, but these are still leaks and they should be taken with a pinch of salt. The live images once again show off the Moto G7 Plus’ waterdrop display on the front, which sees thinner bezels all around and a droplet notch. The glass back panel is shown in a deep red colour, which could be one of the colour options. The rear panel once again gives us a good look at the dual camera system and the fingerprint sensor embedded in the Moto batwing logo.The retail box also mentions that the 16MP main camera on the back will get OIS support, which is always nice to hear. This along with a “faster” fast charging support sound like interesting upgrades to the Moto G line. There is no information yet on whether the same features can be expected on the regular Moto G7 as well.advertisementThe Moto G7 Plus is said to sport a 6.2-inch display with a FHD+ resolution. It will be powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM. The retail box mentions 4GB of RAM, which is likely the base mode. A 16MP + 5MP dual camera system is expected on the back, while the front will see an 8MP camera, as per past reports. Rumours say the Moto G7 Plus will come with a 3,000mAh battery, which seems unlikely for a Plus-sized model. A capacity between 3,500mAh to 4,000mAh sounds more plausible.Motorola is set to announce the Moto G7 Plus along with the Moto G7, G7 Play and G7 Power on February 7 at an event in Brazil. The phones should make their way to India soon after.ALSO READ | New Moto G7 Plus live images show off waterdrop display, dual camerasALSO READ | Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power full specs and design revealed on Motorola’s websiteGet 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?
