A claim that most host cities make to attract athletes and crowds alike. In fairness, save a few exceptions, most cities can usually back it up after the bandwagon has packed up and rolled out of town. In the build up to these Games, Team Scotland decided against bold predictions of their own. Gold Coast in 2018 was the country's most successful Games on non Scottish soil. A total of 44 medals were won - nine of those were gold.

MIKEL ARTETA fired up his Arsenal players by telling them Manchester City tried to 'humiliate you' and Brentford reckon you are softies. The Gunners boss exploited taunts from rival players in a string of extreme measures to motivate his squad last term. The Spaniard warned his stars Wolves would try "insulting" them. And Arteta threw in Pep Guardiola 's tactics for City, as well as the mocking words of Brentford striker Ivan Toney. Amazon Prime's All or Nothing series captured those searing speeches, including a Zoom talk to the Emirates on New Year's Day when he was at home with Covid. Animated and agitated, the ex-City No2 recalled City's earlier 5-0 win when they went for blood at 2-0 up after Granit Xhaka was sent off.

With the Lionesses scoring freely through Euro 2022, it’s the driving force needed to get more women and girls involved in football in the UK. Sadly, females represent just 2% of people playing the sport, according to Jim Law of the Findaplayer website, which helps locate local teams and events. Reassuringly though, that number is expected to rise dramatically this year, with more than 6,500 active female-only or mixed games across the nation. Whether it’s on a competitive or social level, there are so many reasons to give football a go. Euro 2022 tournament sponsor Visa commissioned a report into women’s football, Women Thriving On And Off The Pitch, which showed that: Three quarters of those who play team sport say it has had a positive impact on their business life. Half of those who play a team sport say it helps them deal with stress, tiredness or being overworked. Visa ambassador Karen Carney MBE, who has 144 caps for England, says: ‘The biggest eye-opener … [Read more...] about How to get into football for fitness and fun from the women in the sport
BETFAIR have compiled a list of the top SEVEN most likely striker targets for Manchester United after their pursuit for Marko Arnautovic broke down. United had a £7.6million bid rejected for the Bologna forward and talks have now ended between the two clubs. Betfair: Bet £10 Get £30* Cristiano Ronaldo was left out the starting line-up for Sunday's dismal display in the defeat to Brighton, despite Anthony Martial being out injured. Ronaldo failed to make a mark in the game when subbed on and his absence highlighted a striker crisis at the club. Betfair make Ivan Toney the 6/1 favourite to be the forward the Old Trafford side turn to next to help bolster the attacking line. The Brentford striker was slapped with a £40million price tag by the Bees earlier in the window when Newcastle were reported to be circling. Toney scored 12 times and registered five assists in his maiden Premier League term last year and played 33 times for the Londoners. He joined … [Read more...] about Man Utd transfer news – striker odds: Bookies reveal top SEVEN most likely alternatives after Arnautovic deal is axed

"Everything that's happened has been unexpected," Josh Groban says of his career. As a teenager, he studied acting, but that high lyric baritone could not be denied: By 2007, Groban was the No. 1 pop artist in the U.S., thanks in part to his 2003 hit "You Raise Me Up." In 2015, he was offered a starring role in the Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 , an electro-pop adaptation of War and Peace. That earned him a Tony nomination. Now, a few TV cameos ( The Office, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ) over the years have evolved into his own show, Netflix's The Good Cop, from Monk creator Andy Breckman. Groban plays Tony "TJ" Caruso, a by-the-book New York City police officer; Tony Danza co-stars as his dad, a disgraced ex-cop. The 10-episode series debuts September 21, which also happens to be the release date for Groban's eighth studio album, Bridges . "The timing was perfect," he says of Good Cop 's four-month shoot.

GIVEN the state of the Premier League and the quality of players, it would be an extraordinary achievement if anyone was to score 50 this season and break my record. I played in an exceptional Spurs team which created lots of chances and played in a different way at the time with a five-man midfield. I flourished with the opportunities I was given. But in the modern game, strikers might not play as many matches or get the chances I did. If anyone, especially at Spurs, was to break my record I would be the first to shake their hand. I know how difficult it was and I know what it took. There is no better feeling than scoring a goal and the top goal getters always crave that.
