Deeney praises Watford teammates for Woking FA Cup winby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTroy Deeney praised his Watford teammates for their FA Cup win at Woking.Deeney came off the substitutes’ bench to score in the 2-0 victory.Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Deeney said: “It was all about mentality and we want to give a massive respect and well done to Woking, they gave us a good fight and stayed in it until the end but I think the professionalism of our boys showed over the course of the game.“This guy (Hughes) was fantastic obviously with the goal, but you can look at (Isaac) Success, (Adalberto) Penaranda, many people all throughout the team who did really well. They set the tone and then obviously when I came on, I tried to stick with it or add a little bit more.” Asked about his goal, Deeney said: “I like a little tap in. To be fair that’s something I’ve worked on a lot this season. Getting back into the six-yard box was what I was known for in the Championship, but in the Premier League I’ve kind of come away from it, trying to be a bit more of a player. Now I’ll let these boys be the players and I do what I do.“It’s nice obviously to continue the run, that’s three two games (following his brace in the 3-3 draw at Bournemouth) so I’ve just got to carry on. I’m not going to get carried away because this is football and you can go on a drought very quickly, but I’ll enjoy this moment and back to work tomorrow.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Former Louisville Player Chris Jones Tweets, Deletes Comment Seemingly Regarding The School’s Alleged Sex Scandal
Update: Jones has clarified that his message contains the lyrics to a Future song. We’re unable to find matching lyrics, but we’ll take him at his word.@CollegeSpun no don’t lie its a song make sure you put that in there— Chris Jones (@iAM_UNGUARDABLE) October 8, 2015Earlier: Former Louisville guard Chris Jones, who was dismissed from the program back in February, has chimed in on the alleged sex scandal involving the university’s basketball program. Jones tweeted, then deleted the below message, presumably implying that some of his former teammates (and a few then-recruits) are talking to the NCAA.Earlier today, it was reported that JaQuan Lyle, a freshman at Ohio State, confirmed the allegations to the NCAA when he was recently interviewed. It’s unknown at this time who else the organization has spoken to.Jones’ tweet doesn’t necessarily imply any kind of guilt, but we imagine he isn’t doing the school any favors. This story just seems to be unfolding.
ciara dress during title game national anthemStar recording artist Ciara sang the National Anthem ahead of tonight’s College Football Playoff National Championship, and by most accounts, she did a lovely job. But some people – apparently – took issue with her outfit.Former ESPN sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein, who now does most of her work for Campus Insiders, thought Ciara’s dress was a bit too revealing.Dear Ciara. You’re stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up.— Bonnie Bernstein (@BonnieBernstein) January 12, 2016Ciara’s other half, Russell Wilson, clearly doesn’t seem to have a problem with what she’s wearing.I see you baby!!

Twitter/@gilgenastyThe Big 12 is looking at expansion, and everyone has an opinion about which teams the league should take. On Wednesday, Memphis native Justin Timberlake threw support behind his hometown Tigers. UCF’s answer may not be quite as big a name, but he’s a huge college football fan.Comedian Larry the Cable Guy, famous for his role in the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” is a Nebraska fan, but he also supports the UCF Knights, and would like to see the Big 12 add the Orlando program.This would be awesome!

Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis has weighed in on the 2018 Ballon d’Or debate, insisting that Lionel Messi should have scooped the award ahead of Luka Modric.Winning the Champions League and reaching the final of the World Cup saw the Croatian gifted the coveted honour, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann taking second and third place respectively.Kylian Mbappe, who did lift the Kope Trophy, made fourth place for his exploits with Paris Saint-Germain and winning the World Cup, meaning Messi had to settle for fifth.

Filipe Luis, however, despite playing for a direct rival of Barca in La Liga, believes that the Argentine’s exploits in 2018 – and indeed for the majority of his career – should have landed him the top spot on the podium.“When I get on the pitch my mission is to not let the opponents do anything, be that Messi or any other player,” the Brazilian said in an interview with Globoesporte.“But after so many years I see a guy who continues to reinvent himself – he’s played out wide and now he plays in the middle.“Suddenly, I hear that he didn’t deserve to win the Ballon d’Or because he had a bad season in 2018?“He won La Liga, he won the Copa del Rey, he was the top scorer in Europe and provided loads of assists.“Whoever thinks Messi doesn’t deserve the Ballon d’Or isn’t seeing what I’m seeing. Either that or I don’t know anything about football.”With Atleti sitting just five points behind the Blaugrana in the race for the Primera Division title the 33-year-old is aware that he won’t win any admirers for his comments, but cares little as he feels he is only stating facts.“He’s the best player at Barcelona,” he added. “He scores goals and when he doesn’t do that he provides assists or starts the plays that lead to goals – and he’s done that for the last 10 years.“My rivalry with him on the pitch is infinite, but off the pitch my admiration for him is also infinite.“He’s Argentine and plays at a rival club, and I know I won’t win any admirers by speaking well of him. But I’m just being sincere.”
It’s time once again for the monthly FUT Champions Cup and this month sees the tournament return to Bucharest, Romania as the road to the eWorld Cup continues.The winner will take home $50,000 and 1,500 Global Series Points which could make a huge difference in the leaderboards. With a gap of over 500 points over the PlayStation leader, Donovan ‘F2Tekkz’ Hunt currently leads the Xbox and global leaderboards with 3585 points.AdChoices广告Tekkz was on fire at the start of the season, winning the first FUT Champions Cup of the season before taking the PGL cup a week later – both tournaments were in Bucharest. Now the young Englishman is returning to his old stomping ground and will be looking to reignite that flame that has cooled off slightly in recent tournaments. The last two tournaments were both in the Gfinity Arena, the FUT Champions Cup December and Gfinity FIFA series, which saw Tekkz narrowly miss out in the Xbox championships both times. 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? He’ll be hoping to earn his revenge against reigning eWorld Cup champion Mossad ‘MSdossary’ Aldossary who defeated him in the Xbox final of the last FUT Champions Cup, but that’s no easy task. MSdossary is the first, and currently only, player to have ever won a major title in three consecutive seasons. The Saudi Arabian is a master of both consoles, making him a nightmare for PlayStation competitors.Tekkz may be the number ranked player in the world but MSdossary will be the favourite here.Speaking of the PlayStation side, the PS4 champion of the last two tournaments Nicolas ‘Nicolas99′ Villalba hasn’t qualified for the tournament – giving the rest of the division a huge opportunity for silverware. In fact, only two of the top 10 from the PlayStation leaderboards have qualified: Nicolas’ team-mate Tim ‘TheStrxnger’ Katnawatos and last year’s eWorld Cup runner-up Stefano Pinna from PSV.Last week at the Gfinity FIFA Series, Nicolas became the first PlayStation player to win a cross-console final since the 2017 eClub World Cup. That win was a huge boost for the division and should make the PlayStation players even hungrier this weekend.The action kicks off on Friday, January 25 at 12pm CET and concludes on Sunday, January 27. As the first major FIFA tournament of 2019, it promises to be a must-watch competition.
