Transfer gossip: Speculation over the futures of Remy and Hazard

first_imgA round-up of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea…Loic Remy is in line for a return to Newcastle, the Shields Gazette believe. Aston Villa are keen to sign Remy and he has also been linked with the Magpies and Crystal Palace.AdChoices广告The Sun and the Daily Mail say Chelsea are reluctant to let Remy, who spent a season on loan at Newcastle prior to joining the Blues from QPR, leave during this month’s transfer window.But the Shields Gazette say Chelsea are willing to allow the French striker to go on loan.Remy has struggled to establish himself in Chelsea’s first teamMeanwhile, comments by new Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane have led to more speculation that they could table a big-money offer for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.Zidane is quoted as saying: “After Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player. It is spectacular to see him play.“Do I see him going to Real Madrid? I love the player, that’s all I will say.”The Daily Star therefore declare that Real are ready to launch a £100m bid for Hazard, while the Daily Mirror suggest this could lead to Chelsea signing Gareth Bale from the Spanish club.

Cowboys vs. Giants: Score, results, highlights from Week 1

first_imgOnly in football does an imperfect number mean perfection, and on Sunday, that’s what Dak Prescott was: perfect.The Cowboys steamrolled the Giants 35-17 in Jerry World in the first game of the season, and what stood out more than anything was just how good the Dallas offense looked. Prescott threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns in a 25-for-32 passing performance. He spread the ball around, too: seven different ‘Boys caught passes from Prescott on Sunday, with all four — Amari Cooper, Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin and Randall Cobb — securing touchdown grabs in the effort. 4:29.: A few incompletions later and Dallas’ drive stalls. Punting away. 4:26:  And the first play of the Cowboys’ season is a 13-yard completion from Prescott to Cooper. Hope you won some cash.4:20 p.m.:  It’s America’s Game of the Week! Well, according to FOX. Kickoff just a few minutes away. On the other side of the field, the Giants need to do something about that defense — for however good Prescott was, the Giants’ secondary did not look good. The pass rush wasn’t there and they couldn’t stop Ezekiel Elliott on the ground. MORE: NFL scores, highlights and more from Week 1Eli Manning was replaced late by rookie Daniel Jones, but it was all for show: Jones finished 3-for-4 passing with a fumble to seal the game  in garbage time. It was not a passing-of-the-torch moment, by the way; just a rookie getting some snaps. But could this signify the beginning of the end of Manning in New York? Tune in next week to find out.SN provided live scoring updates and analysis for the Cowboys’ big win over the Giants in Week 1. Here’s how it went down.Cowboys vs. Giants: Results, highlights7:28 FINAL: Dallas gets the 35-17 victory at home over the Giants. The score wasn’t indicative of how much of a blowout this game was.7:24:  Daniel Jones scrambles for a first, and coughs up the ball. Not called a fumble on the field, but this one is going to the review, and will likely get overturned. That’s gonna be ballgame for these two squads: Dallas comes away with the W.7:20:  Dallas punts away and it’s Daniel Jones time in Dallas. A two-minute drill for the rookie.7:12 NEW YORK SCORING PLAY: A three-minute drive results in a Wayne Gallman TD. Giants trail 35-17 with 2:49 left in the game.7:09:  Giants get the ball back with 5:14 left in the fourth quarter. They’re down 25. I think this game is over.7:05:  Oh wow, Tony Pollard with a nice run but … guess what? Flags! 6:59:  This Giants offensive line hasn’t really looked great for it being “new-and-improved” and all. There’s been only one sack on Eli, but lots of pressure all day.6:55:  First punt for Dallas since the first quarter. And around we go.6:49:  Kick-catch interference called on the Giants. Nothing is really going right for Big Blue today.6:43 END OF THIRD QUARTER:  We head to the fourth quarter with the Giants down 25 to a new-look Cowboys offense. They are clicking. 6:34 DALLAS SCORING PLAY: Zeke with a 10-yard run to give the Dallas six more. Cowboys up 35-10 in the third.6:32:  Dak hits Gallup for a big play. Zeke with a run to bring the Cowboys inside of the Giants’ 20-yard line.6:26:  Giants go for it on fourth-and-1. It was tragic. Eli Manning scrambles outside of the pocket and fumbles the ball on a big hit. Cowboys’ ball inside their own 20.6:22:  This Giants offense seems to be a bit out of sync, but the defense looks pretty bad. They’re into Cowboys territory again, though, midway through the third quarter.6:17 DALLAS SCORING PLAY: That didn’t take long. Dak Prescott and the ‘Boys storm right back down the field and score a touchdown via Prescott to Cobb toss. Cowboys take a 28-10 lead in the third.6:12 NEW YORK SCORING PLAY: Giants drive amounts to three points, as Rosas puts a field goal through the uprights. Giants trail 21-10.6:08:  Well actually … the Giants go for it on fourth-and-8 and they convert. 6:07:  And the drive stalls. Giants bring out the punting unit. The Giants have yet to convert on a fourth down.6:05:  And the second half is underway in Dallas. Giants take over from their own 15. Cody Latimer made a really nice play down the sideline — good coverage but a better throw and catch.5:48 END OF FIRST HALF: Fourth down and a Hail Mary later aaaaannnnddd … the half is over. Dallas leads 21-7.5:44:  Giants driving, trying to score points at the end of the half. They get the ball back at the start of the second half. They just crossed the 50.5:41 DALLAS SCORING PLAY: Cowboys now have 21 unanswered points. Prescott drops a pass into Cooper for a 21-yard TD score. Dallas up 21-7 with a minute left in the half.5:37:  This Giants defense just doesn’t look great so far. Cowboys really eating up clock and putting together efficient drives. They’re a few yards from the red zone now.5:30:  Prescott has now completed passes to seven different guys in the first half. Not bad!5:26:  Cowboys are heavy pass early on, and it’s working.5:21:  Giants’ drive stalls out and Cowboys get the ball back in their own territory. 5:12 DALLAS SCORING PLAY: Welcome back Jason Witten. He grabs an easy touchdown to put the Cowboys up a score. 14-7 Dallas in the second quarter.5:09:  Cowboys driving and Prescott just dropped a beautiful pass in to Michael Gallup along the sideline. Went right after rookie cornerback Deandre Baker. 5:02: Manning has taken some shots today. Leighton Vander Esch just closed the distance. Giants punting. 5:00:  Eli Manning just got clobbered by DeMarcus Lawrence. Play results in an incomplete pass.4:58:  Giants have the ball on the 50 and driving. Saquon Barkley is still good.4:52 DALLAS SCORING PLAY: Dak Prescott hits Blake Jarwin down the middle of the field — he was wide open. Dallas ties the game at 7. 4:47:  Also in a Cowboys uniform, albeit for the first time this season, is wide receiver Randall Cobb.4:44:  We are reminded that Jason Witten is back in a Cowboys uniform and not in the “Monday Night Football” booth. This alone is wonderful news.4:42:  And the Cowboys will try again.4:39 NEW YORK SCORING PLAY: Eli Manning with a play action bootleg and a touchdown toss to Evan Engram for the touchdown. 7-0 Giants in the first quarter.4:38:  Giants are threatening from the Dallas 1-yard line.4:34:  On the very next play Barkley breaks a 50-yard run to get into Cowboy territory. Giants are moving now.4:33:  Giants take over at their own 9-yard line. First play is an underneath screen to Barkley. He fumbles! Ball is recovered by New York. Whew. Second and 1. last_img read more

Taco Charlton on Cowboys: ‘We will get to see who is right and who is wrong’

first_imgDallas owner Jerry Jones criticized Charlton shortly after the team moved on from him.”I think we always got to realize on the motivation — we depend on motivation,” Jones recently told local radio station 105.3 The FAN. “The game does. … You got to be unique to even play in the NFL (from a) talent standpoint. But still, it requires a really extended motivation. When you’re on the defensive line, it asks more from you than the other positions in terms of being motivated, in terms of fighting through. Just the nature of the activity on the defensive line suggests fighting through.”It’s usually fighting through pain. It’s usually fighting through really serious obstacles with all those big offensive linemen. And so you have to be eating raw meat to be a defensive lineman in my mind.”  Broncos’ Emmanuel Sanders after loss to Packers: ‘We’re living in a world of suck’ Doug Pederson on dropped passes vs. Lions: ‘We have trust in our players’ Here is extended quote from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, discussing on @1053thefan how he believes Taco Charlton’s competitive temperament impacted his development.

Conor McPhillips appointed Connacht Backs Coach

first_imgA former player with Connacht Rugby from 2003 – 2008, McPhillips was appointed Head Performance Analyst for the province in 2010 and was given greater responsibility within the coaching team last season in his additional capacity as Assistant Attack Coach.McPhillips had previous coaching experience with St Marys RFC as well as a Director of Rugby role with Newbridge College in Co. Kildare. He was also Head Coach of the Connacht Sevens’ side that finished 3rd in the Limerick World Club 7’s last August.Connacht Rugby can also announce the appointment of Simon Kavanagh as the new Head Performance Analyst for the coming season. Simon joins Connacht Rugby from Avenir Sports – Ireland’s leading Performance Analysis company and the Master Distributor of Sportstec Products for the 32 counties.It has also been confirmed that Eric Elwood, former Connacht Rugby player and head coach and currently Domestic Rugby Manager, will be involved with the senior setup on an advisory basis to work closely with the goal kickers.Coaching team 2016/17Pat Lam                            Head CoachJimmy Duffy                    Forwards CoachConor McPhillips            Backs CoachDave Ellis                          Skills CoachEric Elwood                      Goal KickingSimon Kavanagh             Head Performance Analyst  “I believe that any team is only as good as the quality of the management team and the coaching group in place to run the programme. By striving to improve each player to become a better rugby player and a better person, we will improve as a team and I have a lot of confidence and belief in our coaching group that we can continue to do that.” Commenting on the new appointments, head coach Pat Lam said:“I’d firstly like to thank Andre (Bell) for all his hard work and dedication to the team over the past two years. Andre spent many hours working with our young back line and gave them the confidence and skills to execute our game plan effectively. We all wish him well as he returns home to New Zealand to be with his family and we have no doubt he will add value to whatever group of players he works with in the future.“I’m delighted that Conor has agreed to step into a fulltime coaching role after doubling up as the Head Performance Analyst and Assistant Attack Coach for last season. Conor is hugely passionate about Connacht and has given many years of service – first as a player, then an analyst and now a coach. He has an impressive rugby brain with an eye for the fine detail that makes a big difference.
