Ex-Chelsea striker Sutton: Lampard wouldn’t have signed Pulisicby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Chris Sutton does not believe that boss Frank Lampard would have signed Christian Pulisic.The American arrived at the club this summer, but his transfer was sealed in January with Borussia Dortmund.Pulisic has found it hard to earn game time at Chelsea, with the likes of Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Willian and Pedro preferred in the winger slots.And Sutton does not think the 21-year-old would have been a Lampard signing.”He has to prove himself,” Sutton told Radio 5 Live.”Frank Lampard has no agenda against him, he’s picking the best possible team to win games of football, that’s his job.”He wasn’t Frank’s signing, of course.”With [Callum] Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount coming to the fore, he’s going to have a major issue getting into the starting line-up. I really do think that. I don’t see a way in for him at the moment.”Fifty-eight million, a lot of money to spend and it would be interesting to ask Frank now if he would sign him at this moment in time if he hadn’t signed him before? The answer to that, I think, is pretty obvious – he wouldn’t.”But, there’s a reason Chelsea spent the money on him, he’s still a young man and got enormous talent, he has to go out and show it. It’s good for Frank in terms of strength in depth.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say

It was one big party in Ohio Stadium last night, as No. 12 Ohio State beat down No. 21 Nebraska for a 63-38 victory. Here’s what we learned about the Buckeyes, who improved to 6-0 for the season. It was an exciting night for the program and Buckeye fans were treated to a historic night during OSU’s 100th Homecoming game. Quarterback Braxton Miller was once again spectacular. The sophomore ran for a career-high 186 yards, breaking his own school record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. “We have a quarterback that’s kind of ridiculous running the ball,” first-year coach Urban Meyer said. Ridiculous is a fair way of describing Miller. He has an innate ability to make opposing defenders look foolish, to turn a sure-loss into a long touchdown. He’s the perfect quarterback to lead an offense that was equally absurd Saturday night. On OSU’s first four possessions, the offense managed a meager seven yards. It looked bleak for the Buckeyes, who trailed 17-7 early in the second quarter. And then it happened. Miller did what he does best, veering through the Nebraska defense for a 72-yard run to move the ball down to the three-yard line for the Buckeyes. Miller’s long run fired up the crowd and ignited the offensive barrage that would shortly ensue. In the team’s final ten possessions, the Buckeyes scored eight touchdowns en route to a 63-point performance. It was the first time OSU scored more than 60 points against a Big Ten opponent since Oct. 1, 1983, a 69-18 drubbing of Minnesota. Meyer-coached teams are famous for high-scoring affairs, but even the most optimistic Buckeye fans shouldn’t have expected OSU to look this good this early in his tenure. For one, Meyer is instilling a completely different offensive scheme, with inherited players that he didn’t recruit for his system. And the players he does have are young – OSU starts just three seniors on offense. It would be insane to think that the Buckeyes would be an offensive juggernaut in year one, there had to be hiccups. Well, the first quarter was a hiccup, and the team still managed 63 points against a defense that hadn’t allowed more than 36 points in a game this season. This offense still has plenty of room to improve, and that, is ridiculous. One B1G mess We’re halfway through the season, and OSU is the clear favorite to win the conference they are sanctioned from winning. The Buckeyes stand alone as the Big Ten’s only unbeaten team. The four preseason favorites – Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin – all have two losses, and only Michigan is unbeaten in conference play. Then there’s the league’s Leaders division, currently led by Penn State and OSU, the conference’s two teams banned from post-season play. If the season ended today, the division’s third-place team, Wisconsin, would play in the conference championship game. It’s been a tough season thus far for the Big Ten, whose top teams were beat down in non-conference play. Entering this weekend, only three teams were ranked in the top 25. Two of them lost on Saturday. Excluding last season, the Buckeyes have been the class of the conference for the past decade. That appears to be the case again this year, but given the team’s sanctions, it doesn’t bode well for the Big Ten. Give an extra helmet sticker to… Carlos Hyde, who had a career night for the Buckeyes. The junior running back rushed for 140 yards and four touchdowns, both personal bests. Perhaps more importantly, Hyde carried the ball a career-high 28 times. It was the first time an OSU running back had more than 20 carries since Miller took over as starting quarterback last season. A hot topic of conversation this year has been whether Miller receives too many carriers, and in turn too many hits, in Meyer’s system. It’s a lot easier to limit you best player’s touches when others can step up and provide production. Hyde did that Saturday night, and that bodes well for the Buckeyes moving forward.
The Fiorentina midfielder believes the French footballer can teach him to be better; he is also excited for today’s Lazio matchFor Fiorentina midfielder Jordan Veretout, if a footballer wants to be the best in the world, he has to learn from the best athletes.Just before his match against Lazio today, Veretout has revealed how he admires French World Cup winner N’Golo Kante.“I often watch games with Kante so I can steal a few secrets from his playing style,” revealed Veretout to Football Italia.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“He was in my view the symbol of the France side that won the World Cup this year. I am experimenting with this new tactical project of being a deep-lying playmaker in front of the defense and I really like it, but I have so much to learn.”“Fortunately, I have a great teacher in Stefano Pioli. He is demanding in training, but also very encouraging. I hope to continue working with him for many years,” he added.“I love everything about Italian football, from the focus on tactical details to the passion of the people and presence of so many great champions. You’ll see that after Cristiano Ronaldo, many more star names will follow.”“The key is to take it one day at a time with the objective of getting back into Europe,” added Veretout,” he concluded.
