Kelly impresses amid defensive injuries

first_imgHe partnered Eros Pisano as City’s two centre-halves against Plymouth Argyle, before shifting to left-back as the game progressed.The pair were given the nod in place of Adam Webster, who made an appearance off the bench after starting City’s two league games to date, while others are missing through injury.Club captain Bailey Wright (quad) remains out, while Jens Hegeler (hip) isn’t yet match ready and Nathan Baker and Taylor Moore (both ankle) are also recovering.”I thought Lloyd Kelly was excellent,” Johnson said in his post-match press conference last night.”I thought he was fantastic. There was one pass I was disappointed with, he played it with the outside of his boot which was more of an attitude error, rather than a technical error, but apart from that he was outstanding in the way he read the the game: he’s strong, quick, competed with headers and he’s smooth on the ball.”However the head coach added: “We have centre-halves out injured: Jens Hegeler, Taylor Moore, Bailey Wright, Nathan Baker and our young loaned out centre-halves too….it’s caught up with us.”Baker has suffered an ankle injury, with the head coach revealing he is “touch and go for the weekend” when City host Middlesbrough.Secure your ticketslast_img read more

Levski misses Steven Petkov – Goal

first_imgLevski’s teenager Steven Petkov, who was announced by coach Georgi Todorov for the summer selection, is training at full speed in Portugal, Tema Sport writes. The striker returned to Feyrenze in the summer after being sent on loan to Czech Carvina last season, for which he played 12 matches, but did not score once. Todorov announced before the start of preparations that Levski is in talks with Steven Petkov and brothers Borislav and Radoslav Tsonevi for the return of Gerena, but so far no such transfers have taken place.So far, the only new addition is the former defender of Sofia Orlin Starokin. One of the reasons for Gerena’s incoming transfers is the severe financial crisis and the outlook for the worst-case scenario. It is possible that Stephen Petkov will stay in Feyrenze and get a chance from coach Filipe Rocha, who did not work with him. The Portuguese specialist will see the Bulgarian in a playing environment and then will decide whether to leave him in the team during the new campaign.last_img read more

Deadpool giving the suit off his back for cancer charity contest

first_imgOmaze.com(LOS ANGELES) — Ryan Reynolds’ comic alter-ego Deadpool is giving a lucky fan the super-suit off his back as part of a cancer fundraiser from the charity site Omaze.During the FX premiere of the first Deadpool movie on Tuesday night, the “Merc with the Mouth” showed off a special pink version of his normally red suit, telling fans it could be theirs for the taking just for donating to the fundraising platform, which is raising money for the charity F*** Cancer.The fight against the disease is “very close” to the character: his origin story had him undergo an experimental cancer treatment that scarred his body — but gave him healing powers that killed the disease.As in all Omaze campaigns, a minimum donation can score you all sorts of goodies, including the grand prize: the very pink version of the Deadpool suit.“What you do from there is limited by your own imagination,” DP notes. “Will you add it to your weekly wardrobe rotation? Does it become a colorful addition to your S&M dungeon? Or will you simply nail it to a post in order to scare away birds, children, and the elderly.”“This is one fight where everyone can be a hero. No super powers, capes, or lame CG costumes needed,” he quips.Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Relatedlast_img read more


NFL Mock Draft: Part IV

first_imgWilliams is the best lineman on the board, despite his stature that has scouts questioning whether he’s an NFL tackle or guard. The three year starter at Alabama won 2 national championships and thrived in both pass-blocking and punished defenders as a run-blocker. The first-team All-American has the strength, speed, and versatility to slide into any guard or tackle spots and start immediately. A Vikings team that struggled to move the ball all year on the ground should see some improvements by adding Williams. Analysis: After an incredibly disappointing campaign which saw prized free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins struggle, the Vikings front office needs to fix a few minor holes on an otherwise strong roster. The offensive line couldn’t open up holes for the running game, and struggled in pass protection. The defense continues to age, and might need a playmaker or two on either the defensive line or on the second level at linebacker. With Anthony Barr and Sheldon Richardson possibly leaving this next summer, do the Vikings draft a contingency plan? Analysis: There is a genuine question of whether or not quarterback Marcus Mariota can be a starter in the NFL at this point. After a season playing with an elbow injury that inhibited his ability to hold or throw a football, Mariota enters the final year of his contract. In a make-or-break year, the question with this pick is whether to bolster a defense that lost Brian Orakpo to retirement, or to draft a pass-catcher to complement Corey Davis. Delanie Walker’s injury complicates things. TE Noah Fant would look great in Nashville, but so would N’Keal Harry or AJ Brown. On defense, the Titans could find the MIKE linebacker of the future in Devin Bush. 18. Minnesota Vikings (8-7) The Starkville, Mississippi native could be exactly what Mariota needs in a prove-it season. A productive receiver in college, Brown projects as a very strong slot receiver or outside guy. Brown looks a lot like Jarvis Landry, a guy who can play outside, but is most dangerous working the middle of the field out of the slot. Brown isn’t the fastest receiver, but he is the best contested pass-catcher in the class by a mile, and has elite yards-after-catch ability. Brown will easily fill the number 2 receiver hole, and if Delanie Walker can return from his devastating leg injury, the Titans offense could be poised for a big year with Mariota behind center. Stats: 24 games – 49 solo tackles – 71 total tackles – 1.5 tackles for loss – 8 INT’s – 19 passes defended Pick: OL Jonah Williams (Alabama) Stats: 36 games – 189 receptions – 2984 yards – 15.8 YPC – 19 TD’s 19. Tennessee Titans (9-7) Well, this has been a pretty awful summer for the Steelers. After being embroiled in a heated contract dispute with star running back Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers found themselves with another unhappy player in star wide receiver Antonio Brown. With Bell departing for free agency and Brown being traded to the Raiders for a 3rd and 5th round pick, the Steelers can finally move past all the drama that hindered them this past season. The biggest need is at cornerback after whiffing on 2016 first-round pick Artie Burns. But there could be a possible need at linebacker with Ryan Shazier still out indefinitely. Devin Bush and Deandre Baker are still on the board, so there are choices for the Steelers here. The three-year starter at Ole Miss stepped into the vacancy left by All-American Laremy Tunsil and produced wonderfully for the Rebels. The first team All-SEC, 2nd team All-American protected Rebel quarterback Jordan Ta’amu all season, and helped lead the Ole Miss offense to rank in the top 25 in offense in the 2017 and 2018 season. He didn’t allow a sack all year, and only allowed 10 pressures on the quarterback. Keep in mind, this was a lineman on a bad SEC team going up against the likes of Alabama, Auburn, LSU, and Mississippi State. Little immediate starts at either of the tackle positions for the Panthers. Little is arguably the most talented, yet least refined offensive tackle that has come out of the draft in recent years, but if Little can get coached up a bit and embrace his athleticism, he could be an All-Pro within two years. In order to keep Newton upright, the Panthers need to make the wise investment and draft Little. 20. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-6-1) Needs: DL, LB, CB, Safety, WR Welcome back for Part IV of our 6 part series, as we predict what happens at this year’s NFL Draft. Free agency legal tampering period opens today for the NFL, and some moves have already been made, with Oakland reportedly signing former Patriots offensive lineman Trent Brown to the biggest OL contract in league history. Defensive lineman Malik Jackson has reportedly signed with the Eagles, and Eric Weddle seems to be heading to the Rams on a 2 year deal. With that in mind, lets jump ahead to the draft and see what picks teams will make to fill holes in their lineup. You can find the first three segments here: Part I, II, III. Analysis: The Browns of old are gone. John Dorsey’s second year at the helm looks a lot brighter than the team he took over last year. Let’s briefly recap what they’ve done: Analysis: For a team that lost 6 of its last 7, and realistically could have made the playoffs if quarterback Cam Newton was healthy, this team has quite a few holes to fill. The offensive line doesn’t look too strong, given the injury struggles in 2018. Ryan Kalil’s retirement and the general declining play of the rest of the unit contributed to a season where Newton was beat up quite a bit. In addition to a weak offensive line, Newton lacks impact players that can change the dynamic of the offense. No offense to Devin Funchess, but its clear that Greg Olson is the most dangerous weapon for that offense when healthy. Defense is a problem too. A struggling pass defense and lack of pressure on the quarterback are needed. Linebacker Luke Kuechly is only one marquee defensive player on the Panthers, and he needs help in order to buoy this defense. 17. Cleveland Browns (7-8-1)center_img 16. Carolina Panthers (7-9) Added: Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, Nick Chubb, Damarious Randall, Denzel Ward, Kareem Hunt, Antonio Callaway, Olivier Vernon Pick: A.J. Brown (Mississippi) Pick: CB Greedy Williams (LSU) Pick: OL Greg Little (Mississippi) The Thorpe Trophy runner-up, given to the best secondary player in the country, was pretty impressive in his second campaign as an LSU Tiger. After finishing 4th in the NCAA in 2017 in interceptions, the Shreveport, Louisiana native was rarely thrown at in year 2. Williams only registered two interceptions in 2018, but opposing quarterbacks rarely targeted Williams, and had on average a 41.0 quarterback rating when targeting him. What really makes Williams such a tantalizing prospect is his length. He’s 6’2″, 185 lbs, and ran a 4.37 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. The Second team All-American should fill in the cornerback slot opposite Ward, giving the Browns arguably the best young secondary in the league that should lock opponents down on a weekly basis. Arizona Cardinals – QB Kyler Murray (Oklahoma)San Francisco 49’ers – DE Nick Bosa (Ohio State)New York Jets – DT/DE Quinnen Williams (Alabama)Oakland Raiders – EDGE Josh Allen (Kentucky)Tampa Bay Buccaneers – QB Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State)New York Giants – DL Rashan Gary (Michigan)Jacksonville Jaguars – WR D.K. Metcalf (Mississippi)Detroit Lions – EDGE Montez Sweat (Mississippi State)Buffalo Bills – TE T.J. Hockenson (Iowa)Denver Broncos – QB Drew Lock (Missouri)Cincinnati Bengals – DL Ed Oliver (Houston)Green Bay Packers – LB Devin White (LSU)Miami Dolphins – DL Clellin Ferrell (Clemson)Atlanta Falcons – OT Jawaan Taylor (Florida)Washington Redskins – DE Brian Burns (Florida State) Needs: OL, DL, LB Needs: QB? , OL, DL, CB, Safety, WR Needs: LB, WR, TE, QB? Pick: CB Deandre Baker (Georgia) So what do they need to take the next step? Newly minted head coach Freddy Kitchens probably doesn’t need to much help offensively at this point (unless they find an offensive lineman they like), so what about on defense? The defensive line could use a secondary weapon to accompany Miles Garrett, and another cornerback opposite Denzel Ward. Personally, I think Dorsey either goes corner or offensive tackle here. Stats: 36 games – 83 solo tackles – 116 total tackles – 4.0 tackles for loss – 1 sack – 7 INT’s – 23 passes defended – 2 forced fumbles – 1 fumble recovery The Steelers get a do-everything cornerback that should solidify a weak Pittsburgh secondary. The eye-popping stats that jumps out is the number of tackles that Baker registered in his 3 years at Georgia. Baker thrives as both a run-stuffing force at the line, as well as thriving as a defender in one-on-one scenarios. The difference between Baker and Greedy Williams is that Baker isn’t as strong a pass coverage guy, but is stronger towards the line of scrimmage. Baker is a hammer that willingly helps in run defense, but isn’t as strong while defending the pass. This is a really solid pick for the Steelers, and should play well opposite Joe Haden as Pittsburgh looks to get back on track this summer. That is it for this segment. Keep a close eye on the next segment, which should be out by Wednesday. Drop us a line or comment on your thoughts. Please follow and like us:last_img read more


U.S. Open 2019: Rafael Nadal rallies after second-set stumble

LEHNDORFF: Judging the tasters

first_imgWhen I see those fancy-pants judges on my favorite TV cooking competition shows, I ask: “They get paid to do that? What makes their taste buds so special? Why are they so cruel?”Anthony Bourdain, Padma Lakshmi, an Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin were jusges on one episode of “Top Chef.” (Photo courtesy Bravo)I should know better. It’s a lot harder job than it looks.For one thing, it’s a darn weird feeling having an audience watch you while you’re eating, especially people whose food you are judging.When I’ve judged salsa or baked goods at county fairs, or chocolate desserts at a benefit event, or pies at the National Pie Championships, I’ve tried to de-stress by visualizing myself in an empty room.It did not work. I knew people were scrutinizing my reactions and comments as I tasted. One reason I loved being a dining critic for the Rocky Mountain News was that I was anonymous.The unease increases exponentially when TV or video is involved. A few folks look good while eating on camera but they also seem impossibly thin to be actual food enthusiasts.I am not one of them. I’m the big guy who dribbles pie down his shirt while his hair is plastered to a sweaty, nerve-wracked brow.I sympathize with those TV judges. I know the food is often lukewarm or cool by the time it’s carried across an air-conditioned TV studio. They feel compelled to make snarky comments because being mean plays better on TV.The worst part is looking into the eyes of the losers who sometimes approach and ask why they didn’t win. We always sympathize with the contestant who’s cooked his heart out, but just this once spare a smidgen of pity for the food judge.I should know better, but I still said “yes” when asked recently to be a fried chicken judge. For some reason it sounded like fun. You’ll find me sitting at the judging table at 11:30 a.m. Sept. 1 at the Taste of Colorado helping to name the eatery that dishes the best fried chicken in Denver.When judging wine and beer, it’s okay to spit it out into a bucket. If I did that with fried chicken it would certainly gross-out everybody. I’ll be tasting ten plates of fried chicken without condiments, gravy or mashed potatoes even. Diet-wise I’ll just call it an “off” day and swim an extra hour or three.I’ve been getting my taste buds in regular season shape by visiting Aurora restaurants to research the Grade A Awards. Among the eateries that I chose to honor are Darya Persian Restaurant, Helga’s German Restaurant, the Donut House, Cafe Paprika, Carmine Lonardo’s and Las Princesas Bakery. It was intense because I was was searching for great dishes that I could wholeheartedly recommend. It was fun because the bakeries and restaurants never knew what I was doing.You can find the reader nominees (from our recent survey and the staff-chosen winners in the Grade A Awards special section in this week’s editions of the Aurora Sentinel, Buckley Guardian and Life Science and online at aurorasentinel.com. Discover where to find the best pizza, burgers, Korean food, cakes, barbecue ribs, pho, Italian sausage sandwiches, guacamole, African fare, outdoor dining spots in Aurora and much more.Be sure to stop by and stare at me during the fried chicken competition at the Taste of Colorado in Denver on September 2. Come early for the hot dog eating contest and stay afterwards to observe brain freeze agony at the ice cream eating competition.If you’re wondering how to become a food judge, start by having some experience in the food world. Take cooking classes, work for a caterer, teach cooking classes, blog about local food or volunteer with the county and state fairs in your area. John Lehndorff is the editor of Colorado Table.
