Man Utd hero McGrath blasts Pogba: No graft in a United shirtby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Paul McGrath has called out Paul Pogba over his behaviour this season.McGrath wrote for the Irish Independent: “I don’t like having a straight-out go at a lad who is still actually a young footballer – but Paul Pogba now owes a debt to Manchester United.”He’s a world champion. And I’m sorry, but it is not as simple as saying that with France last summer he was surrounded by class acts with who it was easy to play – Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi and Raphael Varane, etc.”It doesn’t matter who you are playing with. I saw Paul Pogba chasing back, heading balls out of his own penalty area, tackling, covering, grafting, when France were under real pressure protecting a 1-0 against Belgium in the World Cup semi-final.”That was nothing to do with the quality of his team-mates.”It was Pogba wanting to be the best player and team-mate he could be, to be a winner, not the player of the last two months at Manchester United.”Pogba is not alone in not producing his best. There are others.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Man City boss Guardiola: We must seduce fans about Champions Leagueby Paul Vegas24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the fans need to be “seduced” after club polls showed supporters would prefer to win the Premier League than the Champions League.City open their ninth successive home campaign in the competition on Tuesday when they host Croatia’s Dinamo Zagreb.”I know for fans the Premier League is most exciting. But this competition is nice too,” said City boss Guardiola.”We are going to try and seduce our fans and say: ‘We can do it.'”The best they have managed during Guardiola’s three campaigns is two quarter-finals, which ended in defeats by Liverpool and Tottenham.”We have done polls and people prefer, by far, to win the Premier League rather than the Champions League,” said Guardiola.”I don’t know why but that is the reality of our club and we have to accept it. I think it is because, in the past, they were not in this competition.”We were at home in the bars, drinking beer watching Liverpool and [Manchester] United. That’s the culture of the club.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Rice appreciates influence of West Ham teammate Wilshereby Paul Vegas10 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveDeclan Rice appreciates the influence of West Ham teammate Jack Wilshere.He admits he gets along well with the former Arsenal star.He said, “Me and Jack has been a surprise friendship. We get on so well, we’re like best friends really. I go round to his house and we go for coffee together.“He’s been hindered by injuries, if you look at his career, but his quality cannot be taken away from him. He’s a top player and even to be training with him is crazy because I grew up watching Jack Wilshere putting in performances on Match of the Day and against Lionel Messi in the Champions League in 2010, when he was only a kid. Sometimes I have to pinch myself.“Jack has been great for me as have the other senior lads in the side.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
COLUMBUS, OH – NOVEMBER 03: A general view as the Ohio State Buckeyes enters the field before the game against the Wisconsin Badgers on November 3, 2007 at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio State defeated Wisconsin 38-17. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)Note to graduate assistants everywhere – most of you cannot stop a collegiate running back who is running at full speed. In the below video, posted by OSU assistant Corey Dennis, graduate assistant Brian Mason, who is standing on the sideline, gets absolutely trucked by a Buckeyes running back during practice. He does his best to brace himself beforehand, but it doesn’t really seem to matter.It looks like the staff is having some fun with the clip.
