Brendan Rodgers In For Claude Puel, 5th Mid-Season Managerial Shakeoff Of The EPL’s 2018-19 Season.

The English Premier League 2018-19 season is not over, yet, another manager had been shown the exit door, Claude Puel of Leicester had been replaced by former Celtic Manager, Brenda Rodgers. This managerial replacement at Leicester made it the 5th across the EPL in the current campaign, having seen Fulham replaced Slavia Jokanovic with Claudio Ranieri, Southampton replaced Mark Hughes with Ralph Hasenhuttl, Manchester United replaced Jose Mourinho with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Huddersfield replaced David Wagner with Jan Siewert, Who says coaching job is an easy one?

OUT GONE CLAUDE PUEL;

Puel was sacked after just 16 months in charge of Leicester City. He led Leicester to a 9th place finish in his 1st season, 2017-18, after taking over from Craig Shakespeare, but a string of poor results has seen his Leicester City team falling down the EPL log table, 12th place, just 8 points from safety, and any hope for European qualification is all but gone.

Leicester poor run started since the turn of the year, since the new year day 1 nil away victory over Everton, the team has been on a free fall, a 7-match-winless run in all competitions, a poor run that includes a FA Cup 3rd-round 1-2 defeat to lowly Newport County, and 5-EPL defeats and a single draw out of 6 EPL matches, just 1 point out of a possible 18 points. Leicester had also lost her last 4 home matches during this poor run, the last time Leicester lose 4 or more (5) home matches in a row was in 1959, some 60 years ago, and the last time Leicester lost 4-EPL matches in a row was in December 1999, a run that extended into January, into a 7-match winless run. They have also conceded 15 league goals since the new year, only Cardiff City had conceded more this year.

It’s hard to figure out what went wrong. Tracking back to December last year, Leicester was flying, a remarkable 1 nil defeat of Chelsea at the Bridge was quickly followed by a 2-1 home win over high-flying Manchester City, but then, a disappointing home loss to Cardiff City laid the foundation for what followed in months after.

Claude Puel had now joined the growing list of mid-season manager casualties, and also joined Leicesters list of sacked manager, 3rd in just less than 2 years.

CAME BRENDAN RODGERS;

Rodgers needs no introduction to the EPL clubs and fans, his feat at Swansea City especially, announced him to the EPL, as he managed and helped Swansea City gain promotion into the EPL, and became the 1st Walsh club to do so. His managerial touch made Liverpool came calling in 2012, to replace King Kenny Dalglish. Rodgers helped built the famous, deadly, strike combination trio, SSS; Suarez, Sturridge and Sterling, and were on the brink of winning the 2013-14 EPL title for the 1st time in 28 years, but an unfortunate and infamous Steven Gerrard slip, put the dream to the sword, and ultimately Rodgers reign at Anfield came to an end in 2015.

However, Rodgers quest for glory would soon be realized in the Scottish Premier League. Neil Lennon had just left his post as Celtic manager, and Rodgers soon took over at Celtic Park in 2016. In his 1st season in charge, Rodgers won a domestic tremble; Scottish Premier League title (with 30 points ahead of 2nd placed Aberdeen), Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup, setting a record of 47-domestic-unbeaten run in the process. Rodgers repeated his 1st season success by retaining the tremble in his 2nd season. He had already won the Scottish League Cup for the current campaign, bringing is a total hall to 7. Safe to say Leicester got a manager with a champions mentality.

The burning question is, has Rodgers taken the right decision? No doubt he wanted a new challenge, having won everything that needed to be won in Scottish football, but taking the job of a struggling club might stain his credentials, all the new managers brought in by Fulham, Southampton and Huddersfield have not been able to improve situations on the ground.

Can Brendan Rodgers perform the magic at Leicester and turn around their fortune? Time will tell.

Maurizio Sarri, The Architect Of His Own Misfortune.

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri may have sealed his fate at the hands of Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovic. The Chelsea owner still hurting from the 0-6 humiliation of his Chelsea club since he assumed ownership, was slapped in the face with another damaging FA cup exit, 0-2 home loss to Manchester United. Victory over FC Malmo in the Europa Cup on Thursday night a much needed respite, but EFL Cup final defeat against familiar adversary, Manchester City on Sunday, may have ended Sarri’s reign at the Bridge, as news making the rounds already suggested that Chelsea chiefs are already considering the duo of former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane and former home ace, Frank Lampard as Sarri’s likely replacement.

Sarri started his reign at the bridge with an early-season-winning run, but things have changed since those remarkable start. So, what went wrong for Sarri and his tactics? How did things get to this stage? He has not even completed a season, and yet, he is about to join the growing names of Chelsea mid-season casualties as shown above;


SAME OLD POSSESSIVE PLAY AKA SARRIBALL;

Sarri’s possessive play, better known at the Bridge as Sarriball seems not to be bringing the early-season success, and with seemingly no plan B to navigate this hard time. Clubs like Burnley are very difficult to break down by just passing the ball around, you’ve got to go long and direct if need be to win against difficult teams as such, how many times have we seen Liverpool rescued a result from long balls and setpieces. Chelsea is failing in this direction and the blame has to be Sarri’s, who remains adamant on his Sarriball style of play. According to Skysports stat, Chelsea’s possessive play is not bringing success or results as much as it does for Manchester City and Liverpool who are also rank high with possessive play, Chelsea’s possessive play is not resulting as much as it should into chances created or goal.

JORGINHO OVER KANTE AS MIDFIELD ANCHOR MAN;

Sarri remained defiant playing Jorginho rather than Kante in the holding midfield role despite strings of poor results, raised more question than answers. There is no denial of the fact that Sarri and Jorginho know each other too well from their time at Napoli, and bringing Jorginho to Chelsea seems sensible, but Chelsea already has a world class player in the holding midfield role, Ngolo Kante. Kante’s exploits as an anchor-midfield man are well documented, right from his breakthrough season with surprise English Premier League winner, Leicester, to his warrior-like display to help Chelsea win back the League title, and not to forget his 2018 FIFA World cup heroics with France, all as the midfield anchorman. Yet, Sarri favours Jorginho over Kante, even when Jorginho is sometimes out of sorts. Clubs seem to have decoded Sarri’s tactics, stop Jorginho and you will stop Chelsea, such were the stories when Chelsea played Westham, Everton, Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United to mention few.

PREDICTABLE SUBSTITUTIONS;

Sarri’s like-for-like substitution is well too predictable, either in victories or in defeats, it is all too similar. Ross Barkley for Mateo Kovacic substitution is growing too popular, the latest duo interchange in the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United was the 20th times in all competitions that both players will be swapped for each other under Maurizio Sarri. Chelsea’s other talented midfield players that are being constantly overlooked by Sarri includes the duo of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and enterprising young winger, C. Hudson-Odoi who can both come in and win a match, little wonder some of these lads are refusing a new contract.

Managers are known for being too adamant and defiant with their approach and philosophy, and it has really not helped most of these Coaches and certainly might not help Sarri too. We’ve seen the likes of Arsene Wenger, who despite widespread calls for him to change his approach, to invest in a weakened Arsenal defence year in, year out, but he refused, and he ultimately paid for his stubbornness, as his long-year affair with Arsenal was brought to a less ceremonial end.

The English Premier League is a tough league, managers have to be dynamic and unpredictable with their tactics and approach, any manager who failed to do that will have himself to blame, other managers will figure him out. It seems to me that Sarri has failed with his tactics, or maybe he just needs more time to perfect his tactics and his Sarriball style.

What do you all think?

What Went Down In England, My Take On Selected Weekend Results

Plenty to talk about from English weekend football, both English Premier League and English Championship presents a kind of competitiveness that makes them one of the most watch around the world, this weekend was not an exception. Plus, the EFL Cup final between Manchester City and Chelsea, it’s barely 2 weeks since City thrashed the Blues 6-0, a nail-biting defeat that certainly set the tone for this cup final.

CITY’S QUEST FOR QUADRUPLE IS ALIVE;

Where else can one start the weekend review than the EFL Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester City? Chelsea aiming to avoid a repeat of the humiliation suffered at the hand of their opponent some couple of weeks ago, adopted a more cautious approach this time, allowing City to have the possession but with no real threat to them. City still managed 3 shots on target compared to Chelsea’s 1, but no breakthrough, not even extra time could produce a goal, thus, the ultimate spot kick to decide the contest. After enjoying success last season from the FA-Cup-shootout win over Manchester United, Chelsea were hoping to repeat the feat against City, but poor kicks from firstly, Jorginho and then, David Luiz, meant Chelsea would leave Wembley Stadium empty-handed, while City, despite losing a spot kick through Leroy Sane, still won 4-3 from the shootout, and Manchester City’s quest for 4 trophies still very much alive with EFL Cup in the bag.

HARRY KANE’S RETURN MARRED BY SPURS DEFEAT;

Tottenham Hotspur title push may have hit a snag, with a damaging defeat at Turf Moor, Burnley. Spurs were beaten 2-1, to slip 5 points further behind 2nd on the log, Manchester City. News of Spurs leading scorer, Harry Kane’s early return from injury ahead of initial March schedule was met with excitement and joy among Spurs officials, teammates and fans, but Kane’s return was marred with a defeat. Burnley yet again showed they are a tough nut to crack, they seem to have shrugged off their early season poor performances, with just one defeat ( to Man City) in their last 8 matches, a run that includes a remarkable 2 all draw at Manchester United to halt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning gravy train.

It was the visitors that took the early ascendancy as expected, but with no real threat to Burnley’s goal, Burnley was happy to sit back and weather all storm blew at them by Spurs, and find their goal in customary Burnley fashion, fast breaks and set pieces. The 2nd half was where all the action were, as Burnley took the game to Spurs, Burnley took a 57th-minute lead through Chris Wood via a disputable corner kick, Harry Kane showed no sign of rustiness from injury lay-off, with a come-back goal, to level matters in the 65 minutes, but spirited Burnley got their deserved winning goal in the 83rd minute through Ashley Barnes, to end the contest 2-1. Burnley’s run of unbeaten 2019 continues while Spurs slim chance of title further fades away.

FULHAM DESTINED FOR RELEGATION;

The Cottagers are having a torrid season, and are languishing in relegation waters, not even the appointment of the Tinkerman, Claudio Ranieri could transform the fortune of the West London Club.

Looking for their 1st win since the 4-2 win over Brighton and Hove Albion at the end of January, Fulham took an early 3-minute lead through the Dutchman, Ryan Babel, in the London derby, over Westham United, but a 29th-minute controversial equalizer by Javier Hernandez put Fulham on the path of defeat, replay showed that the Mexican had scored with his hand, but the goal stood. Issa Diop’s 40th min header and Michail Antonio’s goal sealed the comeback win for the Hammers. It was Fulham’s 18th league defeat of the current campaign, and are still rooted on 2nd from bottom on leg table with just 17 points from 27 matches, with a huge -35 goal deficit, only a miracle can prevent a relegation.

INJURY-RAVAGED CONTEST AT OLD TRAFFORD;

The much talked about rivalry match between title favourite, Liverpool and rejuvenate Manchester United ended in a goalless stalemate. It was almost a horror show rather than an entertaining showpiece, with 4 1st-half injuries that took the delight out of the game. Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced into making all his substitution in the 1st half due to injuries, both Ander Harrera and Juan Mata got injured in quick succession, firstly, it was Herrera in the 21st minute, and Mata just 4 minutes later, both players were replaced by Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard respectively. It got uglier for United when substitute, Lingard limped off, to be replaced by Alexis Sanchez in the 43rd minute. Liverpool was slammed with their own injury worry too, stylish striker, Roberto Firmino was replaced in the 31st minute by Daniel Sturridge.

A point was enough to move Liverpool back to the summit of the EPL table on 66 points, a point ahead of title challenger, Manchester City, in 2nd place, and 6 points clear of 3rd place team, Spurs.

CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE RACE IS 3-HORSE RATHER THAN 2-HORSE RACE;

Championship title race gets even more interesting now, with Sheffield United thrown into the mix, alongside Norwich City and Leeds United. The blades as Sheffield United are popularly called, have been on a 5-match unbeaten run prior to Saturday’s victory over West Bromwich Albion, they now sit in 2nd position on the Championship log table with 64 points after 34 matches played, just 2 points adrift of log leader, Norwich City, with Leeds United also on 64 points, having played a game less.

It could be recalled that both Norwich City and Leeds United recorded a slim win respectively, to keep the race hot and to the wire. Table topper, Norwich, held on to their grip on top with a hard-fought 3-2 home victory over Bristol City, while Leeds also had a 2-1 home victory over struggler, Bolton Wanderers to stay in touch with Norwich and Sheffield United.

DERBY COUNTY IN DANGER OF MISSING THE PLAYOFFS;

Frank Lampard has done a very great job since he assumed the managerial role at Derby County, his good works have not gone unnoticed by his former club, Chelsea, who are considering him to take over at the Bridge. However, Derby’s push for promotion either through the automatic slot (which seems so unlikely) or the playoffs (which is more attainable), was hampered with a damaging 0-1 home loss against relegation-threatened, Millwall, last Wednesday. Derby County now sits on 7th place on Championship log table, just outside the playoffs spot, with 2 outstanding matches too though.

OTHERS;

Another notable point of discussion was the home defeat of Leicester City, 1-4 by Crystal Palace on Saturday late kick-off, a defeat that signalled the end and sack of manager, Claude Puel after just 16 months in charge. Huddersfield doomed for relegation after another 0-2 loss at Newcastle United, they are rock bottom on the league table.

These were just a few spotlights of what went down in England this weekend from my points of view, you can add your talking point or spotlight in the comment section.

AJ vs Big Baby! Psychological Games Have Started In Earnest.

The June 1st showdown between the 29-year-old Briton, Anthony ‘AJ’ Joshua and the 30-year-old American, Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller draws ever closer, and thus the customary press conferences and the usual antics and mind games from the boxers had already begun with a bang.

I am never a fan of mind/psychological games, for me, it feels like boasting, haughty or pride, and like the old wise saying;

pride goes before a fall

How hard can it be, to go into the press conference, show respect for your opponent, the AJ style and let the fight’s outcome or result speak for you, just like it has been speaking for AJ, and, how ridiculous can it get, after one makes so much noise and boasting, and then, end up losing. I will rather go for the former. Yes! Most will argue that mind games are good for the sport, it helps build the momentum, and also, a lot of games/bout are won even before stepping into the battlefield, as Iron Mike Tyson used to almost always match his pre-bout antics and mind games with results, and in contrary, a certain Dereck Chisora, who despite his pre-bout war call and antics against Dillian Whyte, lost twice.

The press conference between AJ and Big baby was held at the famous Madison Square Garden, New York, USA, and it was Jarrell Miller who drew the 1st blood if mind games count. The shorter 6ft 4in Miller pushed his taller 6ft 6in opponent, Joshua off balance during their meeting on Tuesday, causing a short-lived brawl, and now, with such hostility building, boxing fans are in for explosive warfare come June.

Miller’s assault on Joshua did not end at the standoff, he further rained more insults on the current IBF, IBO, WBA & WBO champion, Joshua, saying amongst other things;

…He’s lucky I didn’t punch him in the face, but as I said, I ain’t got no time to play games. I don’t play boxing, this is what I do. Breathe, eat, sleep this c**p.
…He knows that I’m not playing. I don’t care. I knock him out right now. I’m a warrior. I don’t care about any of that.
…You’ve never seen anybody with mental fortitude like me, he said. No matter what he does, what he hit me with, how many punches he throws, he ain’t going to beat me, he ain’t going to stop me.
…I’m a walking monster. On June 1, I’m uniting the world.

Anthony Joshua who had never encounter such bullish act since probably the pre-bout press conference to 2016 Dillian Whyte bout, in his response to Miller’s action said;

You can see Dillian Whyte – they are cut from the same cloth, I don’t expect anything else from characters like those.

A quick look into Jarrell Miller stats as shown above, he is certainly not a pushover, AJ will definitely have is work cut out against his “Monstrous” opponent who has got as much win success in the ring as Joshua. Miller who also had a successful kickboxing career from 2006-2014, with 21 wins out of 23 fights, with just 2 losses will pose a great threat to Joshua’s world titles.

Anthony Joshua needs no introduction, the British star status was rubber-stamped when he knocked out Wladimir Klitschko back in 2017 to add the WBA belt to the IBF title he won with a 2nd-round stoppage of Charles Martin in 2016. Though, boxing fans may be disappointed for his choice of Jarrell Miller, they have been hoping for a unification fight against WBC holder, Deontey Wilder, or a Tyson Fury fight or even a rematch against Dillian Whyte, AJ’s prowess is never in doubt and his 100% win record as shown above is a testimony to that.

Boxing fans around the world eagerly await next episode of AJ-Big Babys mind games.

Another Crazy Scoreline From Europe’s Pro League, 20-0! Is Such Scoreline Good For Soccer/Football?

Just when you thought you have seen it all, then BOOM! it is starring right into your face all over again. 10-0 scoreline is embarrassing, but even worse is a 20-0 scoreline, which can be damaging to any leagues competitiveness. Soccer fans are still trying to wrap their head around a 10-0 scoreline in modern pro leagues, then came another 20-0 scoreline. A certain Serie C club, Pro Piacenza was pummeled 20-0 by their Serie C opponent, AC Cuneo, in a rather unfortunate fashion. One begins to wonder if it was a soccer match or a rugby game.

Serie C is the 3rd highest football division in Italia’s 9-tier-football division, and it includes 59 teams/clubs divided into 3 groups of 20:20:19 (Grp A: Grp B: Grp C) respectively. Both AC Cuneo and Pro Piacenza are in Group A of Serie C, and both also sit in the bottom half of the league table, While Cuneo sits on 13th position, it is ever relegation battle for Pro Piacenza who sits rock bottom on the league table.

Pro Piacenza, also known as the Rossoneri found themselves making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. It was a mess that started way back last year, 2018, and remained unresolved till the present day. Players went on strike action over months of unpaid wages prior to a league fixture against log leaders, Pro Vercelli, adding insult to Pro Piacenza injury was the local council who sealed up the Rossoneri’s rented home stadium, Stadio Garilli over unpaid fees. With all the internal crisis, Pro Piacenza was unable to put together a team for matches, which in effect meant an automatic 3 goals, 3 points conceded. The league rule stipulates that if a team/club failed to turn up for 5 leagues fixtures, such club will be liable to expulsion from the league, in a bid to avoid expulsion, Pro Piacenza rallied a team for the match against AC Cuneo.

With most 1st team players still out on strike, Pro Piacenza turned out against AC Cuneo with just 7 players, a 7-man team that includes 6 teenagers among which an 18-year-old Nicola Cirigliano dua as team captain and team coach, hilarious huh! FIFA rules stipulate that the minimum number with which a team can start/begin a match is 7. So, the Rossoneri had just enough to begin the match against AC Cuneo, a huge mistake on their path.

Pro Piacenza was thrashed 20-0, as AC Cuneo went riot with 7 different scorers. The goals started raining down as early as the 3rd minute, and by half time, it was 16 nil, 4 more goals at the restart condemn Pro Piacenza to a humiliating defeat.

See highlight below;

Cuneo Goal Scorers :

Hicham Kanis-6 goals (8′, 10′, 17′, 30′, 32′, & 36′)

Edoardi Defendi-5 goals (3′, 4′, 16′, 20′, & 22′)

Francesco De Stefano-3 goals (15′, 31′, & 84′)

Michele Emmansso-3 goals (38′, 44′, & 89′)

Guiseppe Caso-1 goal (24′)

Francesco Ferrieri-1 goal (58′)

Nicola Alvaro-1 goal (78′)

AC Cuneo who had only scored 18 goals in their previous 24 league matches, now double their seasons tally in just 1 match.

After the match, a worried and disappointed President of the Italian Football Federation described the result as;

insult to the sport,…Our responsibility is to protect the passion of the fans, healthy entrepreneurs and credibility of our championships,…The one we unfortunately witnessed will be the last farce.

Now, CD Nacional who lost 0-10 a couple of weeks ago and her fans can breathe a sigh of relief, a much-needed respite at a point in need. Conceding 10 goals apparently is not the worst scoreline anymore.

Do you think scorelines such as 10-0, 20-0 at any league division is good for football?

🏃Running and Fitness🏃

🏃Running and Fitness🏃

I decided to make some changes to my fitness and lifestyle just after Christmas, and took up running on the 28th December



I now leisurely try and get out 3 times a week (work and family permitting) and do anything from 3.1 miles (5km) to 6.1 miles (10km)


IMG_20190205_213639_875.jpg


I found a new 5 mile route today which was a real treat.

I’ve driven along this route loads of times but never done it on foot.
Derbyshire is such a beautiful place to live in, but we sometimes miss all the nature and lush scenery whilst I’m driving

it’s just lovely to put on the running gear and go for a leisurely jog.

🍄Wild Mushrooms 🍄Scarlet Elf Cup – Homesteading 🌽

Good morning, afternoon and evening from me in England!


IMG_20190217_183114.jpg

Photography by Darren Claxton


Whlist out on a woodland walk with my family today, I came across the most unusual mushroom.
At first, we thought it was some kind of toadstool or funghi, but in fact, it was an edible ‘Scarlet Elf Cup.’


Here’s some information courtesy of
https://www.wildfooduk.com/articles/wild-mushrooms-for-beginners/


Scarlet Elf Cups

Safety Rating 10 out of 10

These little beauties stand out a mile because of their colour, unless like me you are a little bit colour blind… The Scarlet Elf Cup is aptly named, it’s beautiful scarlet colour and it’s cup shape are 2 of its key defining features. The other 2 are that this mushroom does have a stem, which tapers down a bit like the stem on a wine glass. The stem and the back of the scarlet elf cup are also never the same colour as the cup itself. They are always a more orange to off white colour. You can both see and hear the spores being released from this mushroom by picking one, quickly blowing across the cap and holding it near to your ear.This mushroom also grows in mid winter when not many others do. From December up to March is when you are most likely to find them.There is one mushroom that you could mistake these for that is very similar. That is the Ruby Elf Cup. It has all the same features with a slightly deeper colouring, but that would not be a dangerous mistake to make as it is equally as edible.In the Kitchen

Culinary Rating 8 out of 10

Slightly unexpectedly, these little cups have a lovely mushroomy flavour, and a reasonably firm texture. Lightly cooked they make a lovely colouful addition to any salad, but use them in any dish in a similar way to normal mushrooms, or cook them a bit more to use as a red mushroom garnish on top of a steak.

Son Heung-Min Leading Tottenham Hotspur’s Title Charge In Kane And Alli’s Absence.

Tottenham Hotspur made it 4 straight wins in all competitions since Harry Kane and Dele Alli got injured, having defeated their German opponent, Borrusia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on Wednesday night. The win followed Spurs wins over Leicester City, Newcastle United, and Watford respectively in the English Premier League, and 1 man who is leading Spurs charges for glory in the absence of 2 of Spurs’ main players, Kane and Alli, is the South Korean Ace, Son Heung-Min. The Spurs forward has been crucial to Spurs’ wins since his arrival from international duty(Asian Cup), scoring a goal each in all the 4 matches mentioned earlier.

When the news 1st broke out that Spurs’ striker, Harry Kane and Midfielder, Dele Alli would be out on treatment table until March, it was met with so many long faces and disgruntled Spurs fans, and in all fairness, they could be cut some slacks, both Kane and Alli had been so instrumental in Spurs 4-front-title chase, both could have made a difference had they played in the Chelsea and Crystal Palace losses, plus, the injury news came at a time when another important Spurs player, Son Heung-Min was away on international duty. Though, Spurs Manager, Mauricio Pochettino tried to allay the fans fear and concern by saying his team have enough firepower to continue the title charge without the trio, but a back-to-back defeats/exits from cup competitions at the hands of Chelsea in the EFL Cup, and Crystal Palace in the FA Cup 4th round, aggravated fans concern, but just when it seems Spurs title charges are over, there came a light at the end of the tunnel, South Koreas quarter-final exit at the Asian Cup meant Son would be returning to Spurs earlier than expected, and boy what an instant impact he has made since his return.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 3-0 BORUSSIA DORTMUND UCL ROUND 16

Spurs played host to Dortmund on Wednesday nights UCL round of 16, It was a match few could have predicted the scoreline. Spurs were widely expected to have it tough against the German club, but it was not that tough after all, the home side got a deserved and comfortable 3 nil win. Guess who set the ball rolling? You guessed it right, Son Heung-Min. Spurs wing back on the day, Jan Vertonghens pitch-perfect cross was met with Son’s right-side-footed volley to score 1st goal, out of the night’s 3 goals for Spurs. It turned out Son loves playing against Dortmund, BBCSports stat tells that, Son’s goal on the night was his 9th against Borussia Dortmund in 11 games in all competition.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 3-1 LEICESTER CITY EPL MATCHDAY 26

Spurs played host to Leicester City in an English Premier League match-day 26. Spurs still without the duo of Kane and Alli, up against a team that had defeated title chaser, Manchester City and Chelsea in this current campaign, but yet again, Spurs won with a convincing 3-1 scoreline. Davinson Sanchez and Christian Erikson and given Spurs lead, but Jamie Vardy pulled 1 back to make the scoreline 2-1, and just when it looked like Leicester will complete a fightback, Spurs sealed the win with the 3rd goal through, yes, you got the name right, Son Heung-Min. A Spurs break-away put Son through on Leicester goal from inside Spurs half, the Korean race on, and with the keeper to beat, He coolly scored.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1-0 NEWCASTLE UNITED EPL MATCHDAY 25

Spurs victory over Newcastle United was a hard-fought win. The Magpies, brimming with confidence after a recent victory over Manchester City, Newcastle match was a potential banana peel. It took a late 83rd-minute strike from Spurs ace, Son Heung-Min again, to break down the Magpies, a man-of-match performance from Son that got his manager elated

Sonny is like a battery that you have, you work, work, work until the battery is gone…He gives you everything… said Pochettino.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2-1 WATFORD FC EPL MATCHDAY 24

Spurs 4-match-winning streak started against Watford, Spurs were just coming back from a back-to-back defeat at hands of Chelsea and Crystal Palace, and then needed a hero to inspire the team, a hero they found in Son Heung-Min, who had just returned from International duty. It was an EPL match against high- flying Watford Fc which had not lost in 5 straight matches. Watford scored 1st through Craig Cathcart, it took 42 minutes for Spurs to level up, thanks to their South Korean Striker, Son Heung-Min, 6 minutes later, Spurs went ahead through their Spaniard, Fernando Llorente who sealed the win with a header.

Son Heung-Min might not be making the headlines as he should, his importance to the Tottenham Hotspur team is as valuable as Harry Kane’s and Dele Alli’s, and statistics duly shows that Son Heung-min’s 11 goals and 5 assists made it 16-goal involvement for Spurs in his last 12 appearances in all competitions, Son is courageously holding the fort in Kane and Alli’s absence.

israel-adesanya-of-nigeria-punches-anderson-silva-of-brazil-during-picture-id1128598029

Isreal Adesanya’s UFC Outstanding Record Extended To 16-0-0

Nigerian-New Zealander, Israel Adesanya defeated his opponent from Brazil, former UFC champion, Anderson Silva with a 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27 unanimous scored to continue his impressive winning run of 5 straight UFC win in less than a year.


Israel Adesanya;

The Nigerian-born New Zealander made his mixed martial arts(MMA) debut in 2012, and he has never looked back since, winning 11 straight bouts, a feat that got Ultimate Fighting Championship(UFC) come calling, and he was signed up late in 2017. Adesanya had since won 4 straight UFC fights; a debut TKO win over Australian Rob Wilkinson at UFC 221, a split decision win over Italian Marvin Vettori at UFC on Fox 29, another unanimous decision win over America’s Brad Tavares at The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale and lastly, a1st-round TKO of another American, Derek Brunson at the UFC 230. His total UFC win stands at 15-0-0 (W-L-D), what outstanding results.


Anderson Da Silva;

The 43-year-old Sao Paulo-born Brazilian is arguably regarded by some pundits as the greatest professional mixed martial artist of all time. The former UFC Middleweight Champion once ruled the sport with the longest title reign of 2,457 days that spanned over 7 years (2006-2013), his reign also includes a 16 consecutive victories, a run that was brought to an end by an American, Christopher James Weidman. Silva lost to Weidman twice in 2013 at the UFC 162 and 168 respectively. Nevertheless, Silva aka The Spider still boasts of an impressive record of 34-8-0 (W-L-D) before Adesanya’s bout. Unfortunately, Silvas career took a downward turn since his defeat against Weidman, age seemingly catching up with him, coupled with a 1-year ban from the sport for doping in late 2017. Silvas fight against Adesanya was his 1st in about 2 years.


THE BOUT

Adesanya against Silva bout was supposed to be a co-main event contest at the Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia, but an unexpected injury to the UFC Middleweight Champion, Robert Whittaker meant the main event on the day, Whittaker against Americas Kelvin Gastelum would be cancelled, thus, Adesanya-Silva bout was then made the main event. It was a fight of experience, 43-year-old Silva versus a younger 29-year-old Adesanya, it was the younger fighter that showed and gave more to carry the day. Adesanya landed the bigger punches, faster and showed better stamina, He quickly imposed himself right from the start, and almost connect with a left high kick in the opening round. The former champion, Silva showed why he was once a champion in the 2nd round, more blows that connected cleanly on Adesanya. With the momentum and results going the way of Adesanya, Silva tried to turn the game on its head in the 3rd and final round, but he simply did not have enough in him to do so. Adesanya was unanimously pronounced the rightful winner by the 3 judges 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27, his UFC career record now stands at 16-0-0.


Both players showing respect to eachother after the bout.

In his remarks, Adesanya acknowledged his vanquisher, Silva, who he referred to as 1 of his idols, he said it’s like playing basketball against Michael Jordan. Silva who has now lost 3 of his last 4 bouts was also full of appreciation, especially to God, for another chance to fight at a top level, having been out for about 2 years.

Adesanya is on the right path to challenging for the middleweight title, if he continues in this form and streak, the sky is his limit.
