He is a good person and has immersed himself in coaching. When he finished as a player he obviously became the reserve team coach at Manchester United. He wanted to learn the ropes.”He will be better for that experience at Cardiff. We have a stigma in this country of managers that have been sacked.”What it means is he is more mature and more experienced after having that experience.” last_img read more

It’s going to be a difficult match, but the objective is to start 2019 lifting a trophy above our heads.” last_img read more

The kids that have come in, the likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham, who have played at the likes of Derby and Aston Villa, have done brilliantly.“The fans will give Frank a lot of time because he was such a fantastic player and is a fantastic person. Appointing him is the best move Chelsea could’ve made because he loves the club, and knows the ins and outs of the club.“You can see that these players are playing for him. They’re a young side that are going to make mistakes, and Frank will too because this is only his second season as a manager, but the fans adore him and they will give him time.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Even if there wasn’t a transfer ban I think the young players would still be working hard and pushing in training to get a start.

They’re the club’s goals and my goals, and I hope to win them here.”I like to have fun on the field and off it in the dressing room.

(Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)Urban Meyer has been suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season without pay as a result of Ohio State’s findings from its investigation into how the head coach handled domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.The news, surprising at the time, was announced on Wednesday night. That news has become less surprising since Ohio State’s full report on the investigation has been released.One aspect of the investigation was what was known between Urban Meyer and his wife, Shelley Meyer. Brett McMurphy’s report alleged that Shelley Meyer had been texting with Zach Smith’s ex-wife about the allegations.Urban Meyer denied at Wednesday night’s press conference having knowledge of the text messages sent to Shelley Meyer from Courtney Smith. Shelley Meyer also said this was the case while speaking to investigators.However, a text message revealed in the investigation does show that Urban and Shelley did at one point converse via text message about Zach Smith.The text message was sent on July 23 to Urban from Shelley.“I am worried about Zach’s response. He drinks a lot and I am just not sure how stable he will be. Afraid he will do something dangerous. It’s obvious he has anger/rage issues already,” the text reportedly said.At 7:35 p.m. on July 23, Shelley Meyer texted Urban, “I am worried about Zach’s response. He drinks a lot and I am just not sure how stable he will be. Afraid he will do something dangerous. It’s obvious he has anger/rage issues already.” Urban did not respond.— Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) August 23, 2018Here’s the text message on the report:Yea….Urban Meyer & Shelley Meyer definitely never talked about the images/texts from Courtney Smith.

(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Athlon Sports, one of the go-to sources for college football previews, just rolled out its predictions for the ACC football season. Spoiler alert: it is Clemson heavy.That is for good reason, of course. The Tigers are the defending national champions, and have won two titles in three years.Trevor Lawrence begins his first full season as a starter, and is surrounded by crazy skill position talent. He and running back Travis Etienne will start the year in the Heisman conversations, and Lawrence is likely an early favorite for the award.Beyond Clemson, there are some interesting storylines in the ACC. Athlon likes 2018 breakout team Syracuse to continue its strong play under Dino Babers, and a new team to rise up in the Coastal Division: Virginia. Athlon put out record predictions for all 14 ACC teams in today’s conference preview.Here’s how the publication sees the two divisions shaking out:ACC Atlantic Division:Clemson: 13-0 (8-0)Syracuse: 9-3 (5-3)Florida State: 7-5 (4-4)NC State: 7-5 (4-4)Wake Forest: 7-5 (3-5)Boston College: 6-6 (4-5)Louisville: 4-8 (2-6)ACC Coastal Division:Virginia: 9-4 (6-2)Virginia Tech: 8-4 (5-3)Miami: 8-4 (5-3)Pitt: 6-6 (4-4)Duke: 5-7 (3-5)North Carolina: 4-8 (2-6)Georgia Tech: 4-8 (2-6)This has the Hoos advancing to the ACC Championship Game for the first time, edging out rival Virginia Tech and Miami for the division crown. They last won the ACC in 1995, but have not done so since the conference split into divisions.There, as the records show, they will fail to take out Clemson, which Athlon projects to go 13-0 and, barring something absolutely crazy, another run to the College Football Playoff.

first_img The Best Netflix Food Documentaries to Savor Right Now Brining can sound like a major project that we try to keep to a once a year, Thanksgiving, comedy of errors. Last time we brined a turkey the brine bag leaked all over the fridge and warped the hardwood floors. Nice.So when we got hold of some Sweetwater Spice ready-to-use brine concentrates we were skeptical but gave it a shot. Ding, ding, ding – we have a winner!Based in Austin, Texas, Sweetwater has BBQ Bath, Fajita Bath, Regional Q Baths and Turkey Bath that gives your goods some serious flavor, tenderness and juice.We used the brine several times and were impressed with how little we need and with how little time we had to leave it to marinate. It wasn’t a 12 hour process, instead most meats need only an hour, seafood only 5-20 minutes. We loved that after you brine it they suggest using the left overs as a rub.Each bath comes with super simple instructions and brining times for every sort of meat. When my friend Claire and I used them on the grill for a Memorial Day feast, the bath kept our chicken moist. Definite crowd pleaser.We also appreciate that the ingredients list is quite short. No preservatives, MSG, gluten, colors or flavors. That means we can get down and dirty with some serious rib action and almost feel healthy! Almost.

first_imgAfter perfecting the classic tee, polo shirt and boxer short, Luxury English brand Sunspel has launched the latest product in their line of men’s essentials: the Made In England Jean.This marks the first time the brand has delved into the world of denim in its 150-year history. Sunspel’s head designer Pascale Pinxt says that creating the jeans felt like a natural next step in their mission to offer customers the best in menswear basics.“Sunspel prides itself on providing quality cornerstones of the wardrobe,” she remarks. “We knew denim was a key component to any wardrobe and a natural pairing with our signature white t-shirt.”When asked what she believes makes for the perfect jean, she succinctly replied, “Fabric, cut, and construction.” To answer to these three criteria, the designers at Sunspel constructed a straight-leg pant out of 14-oz. selvedge denim from Japan.  The denim undergoes a special rope dyed technique, which lends it a particularly rich indigo hue.Related: The Manual’s guide to the perfect pair of denim“We selected a simple rinse wash to the jean, which means it retains a lot of its dye and looks smart—even in color.  That works best for us as our look is cleaner and more refined,” comments Pinxt.Though the jeans accrue a certain worn-in character over the course of several washes, as a result of this dying process, the true-to-fit jeans also manage to retain their dark color. The effect is a jean that’s modern yet stylishly classic, all while hearkening back to the brand’s English roots.“These jeans have a really easy fit, so it works well across a range of customers ,” says Pinxt.  “We see our customers dressing it up with a shirt and our unstructured blazer, or styled casually rolled up and teamed with our signature white t-shirt.”No matter how they’re worn, the Made In England Jean ($325) makes for the perfect staple in any man’s closet.Check them out, here.
