Contract extension for Schneiderlin

first_img He added: “I wouldn’t have signed this contract if the club didn’t have a big project. When I spoke to the chairman and the manager, I knew they wanted to do something very good at this club and I want to be a part of that. “My main focus now is to do a great job on the pitch so we achieve all of the ambitions that we have.” Schneiderlin joined Southampton in 2008 and has been at the heart of their rise from League One into the Premier League. He has quickly adapted to life in the top-flight, with his 102 tackles the most in the league, while his goal tally of four is the same number he managed in his previous four seasons on the south coast. That has been enough to convince new boss Mauricio Pochettino to label him one of the league’s “most complete midfielders” and waste little time in ensuring he remains an integral part of his regime. “I am delighted that the club has been able to extend Morgan’s contract,” Pochettino said. “During my short time with Southampton, Morgan has shown what a capable player he is and has demonstrated his potential to become one of the Premier League’s most complete midfielders. “His work-rate and determination make him an integral part of how we play, and so I am pleased he has been rewarded with a new long-term deal. Morgan has played a major part in the journey this club has been on over the past four years, and I am sure he will continue to develop as a player as we move towards our long-term ambitions.” Schneiderlin will remain at St Mary’s until the summer of 2017 after the club confirmed they had tied him down to a new deal on Monday evening. The 24-year-old Frenchman has played an important role for the Saints in their first season back in the top flight, missing just one Barclays Premier League match and scoring four goals. “I am a very happy man,” Schneiderlin told Saints Player after putting pen to paper. “To commit my future to Southampton is a big thing because this club has big ambitions – and I have big ambitions as well.” Press Associationcenter_img Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has signed a four-year contract extension at Southampton.last_img read more

Man City Makes Mendy the Most Expensive Defender with £52m Deal

first_imgTRANSFER NEWS…Benjamin Mendy has completed his £52m transfer from Monaco to Manchester City to become the world’s most expensive defender.The 23-year-old France left-back has signed a five-year deal with the club. Mendy is City’s fifth major signing of the summer and takes their spending to more than £200m.“He is undoubtedly one of the world’s best full-backs, our number one target in this position,” said director of football Txiki Begiristain.Mendy played 34 times for Monaco last season and helped them to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years after joining them from Marseille last summer.He is the Premier League club’s fifth major signing of the summer following the recruitment of England right-back Kyle Walker for £45m, plus a potential £5m of add-ons, Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva (£43m), Brazilian keeper Ederson Moraes (£35m) and defender Danilo from Real Madrid (£26.5m).They have sold left-back Aleksandar Kolarov, 31, to Roma for £4.5m.The arrival of Mendy leaves Manchester City with the most expensive defensive line-up in world football.When Ederson moved to the club from Benfica earlier this summer, his move was a world record for a keeper in sterling, although not in euros.Mendy and Walker have been added to a backline which also includes centre-back John Stones, who was bought for £47.5m from Everton last summer,with the trio making up three of the world’s five most expensive defenders.Central defenders Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala, who spent last season on loan at Valencia, also joined City for fees believed to be in the region of £32m.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

“Sacking me? I don’t fear it at all” – Sellas Tetteh

first_imgBlack Satellites coach Sellas Tetteh says he is ready to step down if the Ghana Football Association decides to shake up the technical team.The 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup winning coach failed to meet his self-imposed target of a semi-final berth at this year’s tournament in New Zealand after exiting at the round of 16 stage.“I am here to serve my country, if authorities says I should serve my country, I will,” Tetteh told Joy Sports.Ghana had finished top of Group A after wins against Argentina and Panama and a draw with Austria, but were outclassed 3-0 by Mali, who are currently in the semis.“If they say I should stay, what is the problem?”There’ve been calls for Tetteh’s head since the ignominous exit. But the Liberty Professionals technical director says he’s calm and simply awaiting the FA’s verdict. “I have got the opportunity to serve my nation and if the opportunity comes and they say come and serve, who am I? I will serve. I am there to serve. Several coaches in this country have not got the opportunity to serve their nation.”Possible candidates touted to replace Tetteh include current Inter Allies boss Paa Kwasi Fabin and former Kotoko manager Masud Didi Dramani.–last_img read more

Week 13 Perfect DraftKings Lineup and Week 14 NFL DFS tips

first_imgWEEK 14 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup builderHopefully you know by now that the results and graphic below are from RotoQL, the best DFS research site you can find. If you’re looking for a serious advantage in your DFS contests, be it NFL, NBA, MLB, or PGA, RotoQL’s tools and features can help guide you to victory. With expert projections and the ultimate lineup building tool, the RotoQL DFS Optimizer, you’ll be ready to dominate.Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST  | KickerNFL DFS: DraftKings Perfect Lineup for Week 13Josh Allen, QB, BillsOK, what the hell is going on? This makes two weeks in a row for Allen in the perfect lineup, and the truth is he should have had even more points if he had been able to connect with a wide open receiver in the end zone at the end of last week’s game. The key to Allen’s DraftKings success — aside from his dirt-cheap price — has been his rushing ability. Last week he hit 99 yards (after two kneel-downs dropped him under 100), and this week he racked up 135 yards on only nine carries. He only accounted for two total TDs, but the rushing yards are giving him a higher floor than most QBs. With a favorable home matchup against the Jets in Week 14, Allen is once again a great GPP play thanks to his low cost.Christian McCaffrey, RB, PanthersAnother week, another appearance from McCaffrey in the perfect lineup. At this point, there’s really no excuse for not having in DraftKings, where receptions count for a full point. Once again, he went over 100 rushing yards and had at least nine catches. Expect more of the same in Week 14 against the Browns, who are one of the worst teams at covering RBs out of the backfield.Tarik Cohen, RB, BearsCohen doesn’t have as much rushing upside as McCaffrey, but he’s every bit as dangerous of a receiver. Last week, he caught 12 passes for 156 yards and added another 30 rushing yards on eight carries. The wild card for Cohen was his one-yard passing touchdown. Obviously, that’s not something you can count on every week, but Cohen has become one of Chicago’s prime red-zone receiving threats. Against the Rams in Week 14, Cohen should once again see plenty of work as the Bears try to keep up.​WEEK 14 DFS CASH LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsZay Jones, WR, BillsUnlike last week, Allen is joined by a teammate in the perfect lineup. Jones finally did what many expected him to do last year, catching four of nine targets for 67 yards and two scores. Jones’s extra affordable price is a big reason why he’s on here, but in a week with few multi-TD scorers, he stands out regardless. It’s tempting to think this is the start of something for the talented second-year pro, but given the fact he had zero catches on one target last week, we’re not getting too excited yet.Chris Godwin, WR, BuccaneersGodwin got back into the end zone for the first time since Week 6 and notched his second 100-yard game of the season. While Adam Humphries has also been consistent lately, Godwin reminded us that any of Tampa’s receivers can go off in a given week. The Bucs feature the type of offense that is gold for DFS owners, making guys like Godwin and DeSean Jackson (when active) great GPP swings. Also worth noting is Carolina has quietly been torched by WRs recently, allowing nine wide receiver touchdowns over the past five games.Dante Pettis, WR, 49ersPettis performed well for the second straight game in the absence of Marquise Goodwin (personal). Garbage time has undoubtedly helped in both matchups, but with 206 yards and three TDs the past two weeks, Pettis has to be on GPP radars as long as Goodwin is out. With CB Chris Harris breaking his leg last week, Pettis has more value than you might originally think against the Broncos in Week 14.WEEK 14 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsTravis Kelce, TE, ChiefsWhen we make the “All Perfect Lineup Team” at the end of the season, Kelce will definitely be the tight end. After another 12 catches, 168 yards, and two TDs in Week 13, Kelce made a strong case to be a “must-own” in all formats regardless of his price tag. Week 14 will present an interesting challenge, as Kansas City faces a tough Ravens’ pass defense. Many will likely look to fade Kelce, but he remains the highest-upside TE on the board.Todd Gurley, FLEX, Rams The stars-and-scrubs NFL DFS strategy is on full display in the Week 13 DraftKings perfect lineup. Cheap no-names appear at QB and all three WR spots, while arguably the three most automatic plays at RB and TE proved to be worth their sky-high price tags. Picking the right no-names is never easy, which is why many daily fantasy football owners don’t fully commit to this lineup-building approach. But you don’t need to be perfect for it to pay off in most GPP tournaments, especially as we get later into the season and randomness reigns.Once again, we see a QB-pass catcher stack in this week’s perfect lineup, though Josh Allen and Zay Jones wasn’t exactly a popular one leading into this weekend’s game. Congratulations if you picked either, and even more congratulations if you had enough budget to jam in Christian McCaffrey, Todd Gurley, and Travis Kelce. If that’s how you started your lineup, you might have been “forced” to take Allen and Jones. Like Kelce and McCaffrey, they can’t set Gurley’s price high enough. He flirted with disaster by passing up a sure touchdown toward the end of the game, but he scored two plays later anyway, calming down irate fantasy owners. He faces a brutal Week 14 matchup against the Bears, but main slate owners won’t have to worry about that since it’s a prime-time tilt. Texans D/STCleveland came into this one on a roll, but astute fantasy owners knew the Browns had been taking advantage of highly favorable matchups. On the road against a tough defense, it wasn’t a shock to see Baker Mayfield regress and look like a rookie. Stats are important, but context matters just as much.last_img read more

Baseball’s most prolific pinch-hitting team, the Dodgers have mastered the crude science in 2018

first_imgLOS ANGELES — It was a forgettable line in a forgettable box score: in the fourth inning of the Dodgers’ game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Aug. 21, Brian Dozier pinch hit for pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu. Dozier struck out against Daniel Poncedeleon, and the inning ended quietly. The Dodgers stranded two runners in scoring position and the Cardinals ultimately won the game.The story lies in the strategy.Ryu had thrown 72 pitches to that point. Manager Dave Roberts said he planned only one more inning for Ryu, and the benefit of stretching his starting pitcher was dwarfed by Dozier’s potential to drive in a run.“When you’re having a tough time scoring runs, you look at potential opportunities to tack on a run or two in a certain spot,” Roberts said after the game. “We have a better chance to put up zeroes and put up a couple runs with Dozier.” “Definitely there was an adjustment process,” Utley said. “You see three or four at-bats during the game, and you get in a rhythm as the game goes along. You don’t have that opportunity when you’re pinch hitting. You try to do as much homework on the pitcher you’re going to face and essentially, for me, try not to do too much because you know that’s your only opportunity. You want to be ready to hit early and just try to put the ball in play.”If there is a science to pinch hitting, it seems unrefined by the standards of baseball in 2018. Both Utley and Muncy, never a frequent pinch hitter until recently, described learning how to pinch hit as a trial-and-error process: studying opposing relief pitchers, determining who they’re likely to face on a given night, deciding when to get warmed up in a batting cage, and how to prepare once they’re in there.“You just try to figure out what works for you,” Utley said. “You don’t feel the same every single day, so you have to try to recognize how you feel that day and counteract that with what the pitcher’s going to do.”The Dodgers seem to have mastered this process as much as any major league club. It took a couple years – and a buy-in on the individual level, Roberts said.“If they’re not starting that day, and they don’t feel good about it, and they’re not preparing themselves the right way, that’s going to bleed into not having success,” Roberts said. “Our guys, to their credit, have bought in and prepared themselves the right way.”ALSOJulio Urías pitched two scoreless innings in his fourth appearance for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, his first since being optioned on Saturday. The left-hander walked the leadoff batter in each inning, but he struck out four and induced two groundouts. He’s expected to join the Dodgers once he’s eligible to be recalled Sept. 3. … Josh Fields allowed two runs in one-third of an inning for OKC on Monday, the second of back-to-back nights for Fields, who allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning Sunday. … The Dodgers signed right-handed pitcher Zach McAllister to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City. McAllister, 30, was released by the Cleveland Indians on Aug. 7 after posting a 4.97 ERA in 41 games this season. He was claimed by the Detroit Tigers three days later and allowed eight runs in 3-1/3 innings. … McAllister is eligible for the Dodgers’ postseason roster. … Oklahoma City outfielder Alex Verdugo and pitcher Manny Banuelos were selected to the All-Pacific Coast League team. Verdugo led the PCL with a .335 batting average at week’s end, and Banuelos ranked among the league’s top 10 in ERA (3.59) and strikeouts (126). … The Dodgers’ game in St. Louis on Sept. 16 was selected for a “Sunday Night Baseball” telecast on ESPN. The Dodgers begin a six-game homestand the following day.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Walker Buehler, 6-4, 2.96 ERA) at Texas Rangers (RHP Ariel Jurado 2-3, 6.40 ERA), Tuesday, 5 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available) Even though that decision backfired, it will hardly deter Roberts. Since he became the manager in 2016, the Dodgers lead all of baseball in pinch-hit at-bats by a significant margin.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Pinch hitters are far more popular in the National League, where the opportunity to replace a pitcher with a position player represents a significant upgrade. This year, no NL team has gotten more hits (55), RBIs (32) or a higher on-base plus slugging percentage (.775) than the Dodgers.Roberts believes it’s a credit to the players on his bench, not his own sense of timing.“It seems like there’s four guys that could be in any major league lineup on a particular night,” he said. “I don’t see any other big league clubs that can say that.”However, this is not why Roberts pinch hits more aggressively than his counterparts. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start In 2016, Dodger pinch hitters ranked 13th in the NL in OPS – .567, the equivalent of sending Zack Greinke to the plate – yet Roberts still liked his bench enough to pinch hit more frequently than his counterparts. The gap has narrowed slightly this year, but the Dodgers (215) still began the week with nine more at-bats from pinch-hitters than the next closest team, the San Francisco Giants (206).Does the aggressive strategy flow from the personnel, or from the manager?“It’s a reflection of conversations that I’ve had with the front office, with players, coaches, and my trying to grow my mind,” Roberts said. “When I played, coached, there wasn’t a whole lot of pinch hitting. To call a guy from the on-deck circle and hit for him, that’s a gut punch. That’s something that I feel is the best way to manage our roster, to give us the best chance to score runs. It just takes the buy-in from the players to understand this is the best thing for the Dodgers.”The strategy, then, is more likely to come from the front office than the clubhouse. President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman upgraded the Dodgers’ lineup by acquiring infielders Manny Machado and Brian Dozier at the trade deadline, rather than bolster the team’s pitching staff.Dozier and Machado have bumped former starters such as Matt Kemp, Chris Taylor and Max Muncy to the bench regularly. Now, Roberts has even more of a potential upgrade when it is his pitcher’s turn to bat.For his part, Friedman said he wasn’t aware the Dodgers were leading the league in pinch-hit at-bats.“That’s not something we set out to lead the league in,” he said.Veteran Chase Utley leads the Dodgers in pinch-hit at-bats (29) and pinch hits (13) this season. A prolific second baseman at his peak, Utley wasn’t always accustomed to coming off the bench. He wasn’t always good at it, either.In 2016, Utley collected just two hits in 11 pinch-hit at-bats. Last year he went 9 for 33. This season, his .484 on-base percentage and .621 slugging percentage is the equivalent of bringing Ted Williams off the bench on a whim.Related Articleslast_img read more

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Tom Brady, Jordan Howard, Adrian Peterson impact Week 12 start ’em, sit ’em decisions

first_imgWe already know some key RBs (James Conner, Devonta Freeman) and a key QB (Matthew Stafford) are out this week (and Matt Breida is “doubtful” for Sunday night’s game). Still, there are some other important players who could be missing from their teams’ backfields on Sunday, including one of the greatest RBs and the greatest QB in history. Dramatic, right? We’ll have the latest updates on Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson, and Jordan Howard below as you start to finalize your Week 12 fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions.For updates on injured WRs, such as Emmanuel Sanders, Julian Edelman, Alshon Jeffery, and more, click here; for the latest on TE George Kittle, go here; ​for the Week 12 weather report, click here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. (Links coming soon). WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs Tom Brady playing Week 12?UPDATE: Brady is officially ACTIVE.Brady (right elbow) popped up on the injury report after a limited practice on Friday, but expectations are that he’ll suit up on Sunday against the Cowboys.There likely isn’t any real reason to worry about Brady’s availability, but the combination of his injury/late start, a tough matchup, and a banged-up Patriots offense — which figures to be without Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) — makes him a below-average option this week. WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Jordan Howard playing Week 12?UPDATE: Howard is officially OUT.The last report on Howard (shoulder) is that he hasn’t been cleared for contact despite putting in limited practices all week. Obviously, that would be make him a longshot to play against Seattle on Sunday, but it’s unclear if anything has changed with his status. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Sunday morning that Howard is unlikely to play this week.This isn’t a terrible matchup for Howard, but given his injury, he’s best suited for fantasy benches even if he’s a surprise active. Miles Sanders will be a FLEX regardless, but if Howard is out, he will handle the bulk of the backfield duties for Philadelphia, making him a decent RB2, especially in PPR leagues.WEEK 12 DFS LINEUPS: FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPAdrian Peterson injury updateUPDATE: Peterson is officially ACTIVE. Thompson is officially OUT.Peterson (toe) missed practice early in the week, but Redskins coach Bill Callahan said Friday that he expects Peterson to play on Sunday against the Lions, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the same early Sunday morning. Because of the favorable matchup, you can take a chance on Peterson as a FLEX in standard leagues, as he could easily get more carries than Derrius Guice again. He’s rather TD-dependent, though. Guice has a little more value given his explosiveness, especially in PPR formats.MORE WEEK 12 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderChris Thompson (toe) is also questionable, though Schefter report Thompson is not expected to play this week. He’s been out since Week 6 and wouldn’t be a recommended fantasy play even if he’s active.last_img read more

HUGE LONGSHOT LOST BUS FINDS WAY IN GRADE II, $200,000 SANTA MONICA STAKES; TRAINED BY SHERLOCK, CALIFORNIA-BRED FILLY WINS BY A HEAD UNDER PEREZ IN 1:21.78

first_imgONE WINNING PICK SIX TICKET PURCHASED THROUGH KENTUCKY HUB PAYS $1,132,476.80; SANTA ANITA HAS SUPER HIGH FIVE CARRYOVER OF $24,917 INTO SUNDAY ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 23, 2016)–Longshot Lost Bus proved ultra game in winning Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Santa Monica Stakes at Santa Anita by a head under Fernando Perez. Trained by Gary Sherlock, the 4-year-old California-bred filly was tested the length of the stretch and just prevailed over Finest City while covering seven furlongs in 1:21.78.Sent from her number four post position in a field of nine older fillies and mares, Lost Bus, who was claimed three starts back for $32,000 on Nov. 19, was pressed throughout at the rail through splits of 22.42, 44.93 and 1:09.08.“Lost Bus was pretty much going to run before I learned (probable favorite) Sunday Rules wouldn’t be entered, but I was running for third, and it turned out better than that,” said Sherlock, who won the Santa Monica in 2008 with Intangaroo. “There wasn’t a lot of speed in the race, and I told Fernando to go to the front.”One of only two Cal-breds in the lineup, Lost Bus was the longest shot in the field at 60-1 and following a claim of foul lodged by Finest City’s jockey, Corey Nakatani, she paid $131.20, $42.20 and $14.80.Owned by Terry Lovingier, Lost Bus, who is by the In Excess stallion Bring the Heat, notched her first-ever stakes win and improved her overall mark to 11-3-2-2. With the winner’s share of $120,000, she increased her earnings to $256,018.“I got a clean break, I took her to the lead and she was comfortable the whole time,” said Perez. “At the end, she was still trying. Corey was pushing me. We were bumping a little bit down the stretch, but not much to be honest. He just had to take a shot (by claiming foul) to see if he could get the disqualification.”Breaking from the far outside, Finest City broke sharply and pressed the winner gate to wire while just holding off the late charge of favored Tara’s Tango by a neck. Off at 8-1, Finest City paid $10.60 and $6.80.Tara’s Tango, who was ridden by Mike Smith, broke alertly but was taken in hand heading into the far turn, then angled out turning for home and just missed, finishing third, 2 ¼ lengths in front of Living The Life. Off at 3-1, Tara’s Tango paid $4.60 to show.“I couldn’t keep her in a hard drive,” said Smith in reference to his decision to reserve his mount for the stretch run. “I thought I could let them go, give her a breather and then go at them again on the outside and it worked, but I just didn’t get there in time.”With a two-day Pick Six carryover contributing to a massive total Pick Six pool of $1,852,098, there was just one winning ticket, worth $1,132,476.80. Purchased for an as-yet undisclosed amount, the ticket was generated through a Kentucky-based wagering hub.There is a carryover into Sunday’s one dollar Super High Five of $24,917.First post time for a nine-race card on Sunday at Santa Anita is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

Watch cheeky Lampard laugh about Spurs’ loss at Man Utd on Chelsea TV

first_imgFRANK LAMPARD couldn’t resist breaking out in a smile after hearing that London rivals Spurs had lost to Manchester United.The Chelsea manager was already in a cheerful mood after watching his side bounce back from defeat to West Ham with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.2 Frank Lampard couldn’t resist a cheeky grin at hearing Tottenham lost to Manchester UnitedCredit: YouTubeElsewhere, Lampard’s former manager Jose Mourinho suffered a miserable return to Old Trafford as his Spurs side lost by the same score to United.But Chelsea got back on track with goals from Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount either side of a strike from Trezeguet to give the Blues the three points.In an interview with Chelsea TV after the match, Lamps had finished giving his thoughts on the game when the subject turned to rivals Spurs.After the presenter interrupted to say “Tottenham lost…did you see that?”, the former Derby boss broke out into a huge cheeky grin and replied: “I did see that, yeah, I did.”Lampard had already further endeared himself to Chelsea fans with his refusal to ever manage Spurs last month following Mourinho’s appointment.Chelsea is certainly very close to my heart. Hence why I’m so proud to manage this club. And hence why I wouldn’t manage TottenhamFrank LampardDespite admitting that he understood the Portuguese’s decision, the Stamford Bridge chief says the London rivalry would stop him following in the Special One’s boots.Asked if he could take charge of Spurs one day, Lampard smiled and replied: “I can firmly say no. And you can replay that it ten years, or whenever you want. No, it wouldn’t happen.”But I think things are different. Jose Mourinho has worked for a lot of football clubs and you have to respect his right to work.”On the other hand i was here for 13 years as a player, have an absolute deep feeling for the club, and I obviously went to Manchester City for a year at the end of my career.”But Chelsea is certainly very close to my heart.
