Neymar To PSG: Pros And Cons

first_imgOn the back of the last three (3) fantastic seasons in one of the biggest football clubs in the world and the seemingly unbreakable bond that arguably the world’s most feared and effective forward triumvirate created, it would have been an unfathomable idea to think that the youngest of the trio would be open to a transfer up north to a somewhat lower league. But Neymar has decided to move up to France and play for Paris Saint-Germain in the Ligue 1 and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.Considering the humongous amount of money involved in the record breaking transfer and all the narratives being bandied around about Neymar wanting a new challenge that would effectively make him the leader of a team, we should lool at the possible upsides and downsides that may arise from this transfer.Firstly is the amount of money involved in the transfer. Besides the €222m used to buy out Neymar’s contract with Barcelona, he and his father-agent will be pocketing close to €100m on sign-on and agent fees leading to obvious concerns about the ripple effect of such amount of money being spent on a player. Unfortunately for Barcelona, they might be one of the first to suffer from the new wave of prices because they will most surely be looking for a replacement. Like Jose Mourinho said after Manchester United’s game against Sampdoria in Dublin on Wednesday night, “you are going to have more players of £100 million and £80 million and £60 million,” adding “I don’t think the problem is Neymar; it’s the consequences.” With clubs haven spent in the regions of £50m upwards comfortably since last summer, It is almost a certainty that the transfer market would be highly inflated due to this tranfer.For PSG, there are very few risks involved for them. They have signed a world class player who has scored more goals at 25 for his national team than Bebeto, Rivaldo and Ronaldinho. He comes with big game pedigree, obvious talent and loads of entertainment, but very importantly he also come with the kind of Lavish star attitude that fits the City of Light. PSG lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic last summer but Neymar is considerably bigger and younger than the big swede.For the Ligue 1, this transfer improves the league from a marketing point of view. Neymar’s presence will surely increase interest and viewership of the Ligue 1. Neymar in PSG proves that the Ligue 1 has enough attraction for a player of his ilk and just like the wave that followed David Beckham’s move to the MLS in 2007, the French league should be expecting more big players to want to move to either play with or against Neymar in France.For Neymar, it’s a big chance to lead a big club like PSG. He’s definitely going to be the go to man right there in Paris and judging from his performances in Barcelona, it looks like he’s up to the task. Also at a reported £550,000 a week after tax, sign-on fee of £40m and agent’s fee of about £35m, it surely is a positive move economically for the player and his managementFinally its Barcelona who are the biggest losers. Neymar to PSG is more than a guaranteed average of 30+ goals and assists combined thats been lost. This transfer puts Ernesto Valverde on his foot because his job might have just been a little bit more difficult with an ageing Barcelona squad that has all but relied on the MSN in recent years. Another negative for Barcelona is that now they have just two weeks until they have to pay what we all should expect to be top dollar for a probable capable replacement.All in all, I think that there are alot of positives for the player and football in France generally. How well Barcelona are able to recover from this is left to be seen. Relatedlast_img read more

Mets’ Noah Syndergaard on early season struggles: ‘My performances have been unacceptable’

first_img“It would’ve been a great win today, but I let the team down,” Syndergaard said after the game, via Newsday. “I’ll keep it short and simple. To be quite honest, the entire beginning of the season, my performances have been unacceptable. I have to be better. I will be better. There’s no excuses for it.”MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNThe Mets entered the season with what appeared to be one of the best rotations in all of baseball. But, their starters have not met expectations through the first 21 games of 2019 and they finished play Sunday 28th in MLB with a 5.61 team ERA.New York manager Mickey Callaway said the team needs to improve on the mound.“(Syndergaard) knows he needs to get better,” Callaway said Sunday. “We need to get better as a pitching staff. That’s just the bottom line. We need to pitch better than we are. And we will.“(Our ERA) is high. It is high. That’s a fact. You can put any 15, 14, 12, 20 games together and it’s not going to look great. But once it’s all said and done, I really feel like we’re going to be (good).”The Mets have now lost four of their last five games and dropped to 11-10 after opening the season with wins in five of their first six. Noah Syndergaard has not been happy with his performance so far this season.The 26-year-old right-hander allowed six runs (four earned) and eight hits in five innings of work Sunday in the Mets’ 6-4 loss to the Cardinals. His ERA ballooned to 5.90 during the loss. “We need to start snapping out of it. It’s time,” Callaway said. “They’re going to get better, but we need to snap out of it soon, because we’re about to go play a tough series against a good team.”The Mets will begin a three-game series against the Phillies on Monday.last_img read more

Ready or not, Lonzo Ball and Lakers will hit court for Saturday’s preseason opener

first_imgEL SEGUNDO — Luke Walton on Friday was focused on implementing defensive schemes and the long list of things he had been unable to get to during the Lakers’ truncated training camp. The preseason game that awaited his team the next day was not yet his focus.Nor was the circus that awaits the rookie sensation he plans to start at point guard. The fervor surrounding Lonzo Ball, after all, comes with hope that the Lakers are on the cusp of a return to legitimacy.“I’m sure when we get there tomorrow I’ll have some excitement about that,” Walton said.Saturday’s preseason opener against Minnesota at Honda Center will mark Ball’s professional debut – not counting, of course, his Most Valuable Player performance during summer league in Las Vegas – and give fans their first glimpse at the most highly anticipated Lakers rookie since, perhaps, Magic Johnson. The preseason opener is sold out, much of which can likely be traced to the excitement for Ball, a Chino Hills native who starred at UCLA for one season.Ball continued to shine in training camp, leading a team with Ingram, Caldwell-Pope, Larry Nance Jr. and Julius Randle to a 3-0 mark in scrimmages on Thursday night. It was the second straight day Ball guided a team that went undefeated. Predictably, he did it with his passing.“I don’t even know if he shot a single time in the scrimmage last night,” Walton said.Walton said minutes will be limited. With 20 players on the preseason roster, obviously, the Lakers will play a deep rotation.“We don’t want to wear out the young guys at all,” Walton said. “I mean, it’s preseason. I’m sure there’s going to be nights I want to play Lonzo 46 minutes and I’m just not going to do it.”Thursday marked the official end of the training camp portion of the season, with three days of two-a-day practices in the books. However, with preseason games coming earlier than in years past, Walton said the Lakers have much more ahead of them.“Training camp’s not over for us,” he said. “We’ve got a lot more to do. Like I said before we started camp … there’s a lot more that we need to get in before the season starts but we’re going to use the whole preseason to get that in.”Much of what the Lakers will put on the floor Saturday will be instinctive and what they cultivated over an offseason filled with optional team workouts and pick-up games.“I just want to play fun,” Ingram said. “Go out there with a lot of energy, try to emulate the way we want to play during the season. Of course we want to run and just play fast.”ALSOThe Lakers will be without three players on Saturday. Brook Lopez (back spasms) and rookie guard Josh Hart (hamstring) have been cleared for contact and went through Friday’s practice but will not play against Minnesota. Andrew Bogut (visa issues) is also unavailable but will be with the team. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersOn Thursday, Ball said he did not expect to have to battle nerves when he first stepped on the court.From a practical standpoint, the first of six preseason contests gives the Lakers coaching staff more information to evaluate what – and who – is working on the court. Walton said he expects Saturday’s game to be “pretty sloppy,” much like the early scrimmages of training camp.“I’m excited,” first-year Laker Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said. “I hope my teammates are excited as well. I think it’s going to be great to go out and play against someone else besides our team and move forward from there.”Starting small forward Brandon Ingram agreed.“It gives us a chance to see where we are,” he said. “We’ve been practicing and playing a lot the last two days of training camp, so we get to see how we match up against other guys and how we can play.”last_img read more

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a huge Impression on his Team-mates in MU!

first_imgAs well as his significant contribution on the field for Manchester United, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a huge impression on his team-mates, as this selection of quotes shows…“Zlatan is a leader and it’s a pleasure to be a team-mate with a great guy like this. He’s a great attacking player, he gives me good advice and he really is genuinely a good friend as well.” – Eric Bailly, August 2016“Zlatan is the big brother. He makes jokes and makes everyone relaxed. He’s a winner. He will really help the team. He’s been making fun of my training when I was on holiday, the boxing training.” – Paul Pogba, August 2016“He is a great personality. When you see how fit he is then you see what kind of a professional he is and I think he is an example for me and a lot of players.” – Daley Blind, October 2016“He is a top player and we can’t help but learn from just being alongside him, playing and training with him, seeing what he is doing now and what he has done in the past.” – Anthony Martial, December 2016“He’s a handful. He’s one of the best strikers in the world and he’s been prolific wherever he’s been, so to come up against him in training and learn off him only improves me as a player.” – Phil Jones, December 2016“His mentality is as big as his physical attributes – the young players can learn that from him. He’s easy to speak to and has been a really good team-mate.” – Marcus Rashford, February 2017“He put himself out there to be shot at but I think that’s what he thrives on. I can’t see him being the type to go and fizzle out and have an easy ride. He almost needs that, it drives him on.” – Michael Carrick, March 2017“The day he arrived, we were away on pre-season, so he was on his own with the kit men at the training ground. Zlatan apparently looked the kit men up and down and said: ‘I hope you know God has arrived’. The kit men were shaking and didn’t know what to think, then he fell about laughing with them. He always does that.” – Juan Mata, December 2017“With Zlatan, I have trained a month and a half and he is very impressive. We talk and we have coffee together every day, it’s a shame that he no longer plays for his country.” – Alexis Sanchez, March 2018To finish, here are a few words from the boss, Jose Mourinho…“He’s a very intelligent guy, a very proud man. He decided to come to the Premier League, to a club with the level of expectation that Manchester United has, to the most difficult league in the world for a striker. But it’s because he knew he could do it. He’s a great example in every aspect. He’s very professional, even in something that is really difficult in footballers’ lives today – he’s great in his family life and keeping it as private as possible. I think the kids couldn’t have a better player to look at.” (December 2016)(Source: manchesterunited)last_img read more

CDC’s latest recommendation could mean no sports until June

first_imgHockey and baseball would also be out of the question. While the NCAA received some blowback for canceling the College World Series (among other championships) months in advance, it’s now clear that the decision may have been taken out of its hands anyway.MORE: Here’s how athletes are ‘social distancing'”This recommendation is made in an attempt to reduce introduction of the virus into new communities and to slow the spread of infection in communities already affected by the virus,” the CDC said in a statement. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended against holding events with 50 or more people over the next eight weeks as the U.S. scrambles to contain the spread of coronavirus, which has so far sickened more than 3,499 people in the U.S. and killed 63.That announcement likely means no NBA, NHL or MLB action until at least mid-May, and probably not until June.
