EPL: Rio Ferdinand Predicts team to win title next Season

  Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has backed Chelsea to win the Premier League title next season. However, he feels the Blues need to sign Sergio Aguero this summer, to help boost their chances. Thomas Tuchel has gotten Chelsea firing again, after replacing Frank Lampard in January. They are now in line to finish in the top four and will play the FA Cup final against Leicester City. Chelsea also plays Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday after a 1-1 draw in Spain. Ferdinand believes they can build on their impressive finish to this season, by winning the league in 2021/2022. “Have you seen Chelsea’s stats?

Bale Treble Against Blades Lifts Spurs Fifth

Gareth Bale scored a brilliant hat-trick as Tottenham shook off their Carabao Cup final misery and kept alive their Champions League hopes with a 4-0 win over relegated Sheffield United. Bale's 36th-minute opener, a fine instinctive flick from close range, was scant reward for Spurs' first-half dominance, but though Heung-Min Son saw an effort after the break (52) ruled out for offside, the Welshman struck twice more legitimately and emphatically soon after. Bale brought up his 50th Premier League goal shortly after the hour mark after being set up by Son on a Spurs breakaway and hit a fierce third without breaking stride (69) before departing to hearty applause, albeit only from the home bench. The Blades, for whom John Fleck escaped punishment after a VAR review after catchi...

Erdogan Calls Ozil, Praises Exit From German Team

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he had backed Mesut Ozil’s decision to quit the German national team on racism grounds in a telephone call with the Turkish-origin football star, wading into a controversy that caused uproar in Germany.

His attitude in the statement is completely patriotic, it is absolutely praiseworthy behaviour,” Erdogan said, quoted by state news agency Anadolu. “I k...

Thickleeyonce Shattered By SA Fashion Week Hate

South African photographer and plus-size model Lesego "Thickleeyonce" Legobane cried so hard at the social media hate following her SA Fashion Week appearance on Tuesday night that her mother had to help her clean up the vomit she spewed after being physically sick.

Reacting to the comments, Thickleeyonce said she did not usually care what people thought but cried after reading the hatred aimed at her. "I usually don't give a f...

Resurgent Leicester Thrashed Liverpool 

There was applause. There were banners. There were Andrea Bocelli-sound tracked memories beamed onto the big screen.And then there was stark vindication. Thursday brought the cruellest, most ruthless sacking in years. Monday brought compelling evidence that the hard decision was indeed the right decision. Leicester City's players have strenuously denied any involvement in the sacking of Claudio Ranieri. They have denied that there were even any problems between the manager and the dressing room. But on the first night since his exit, they produced a performance that was light-years beyond anything they had hitherto deigned to offer this season.  "Some of it is human nature," said caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare. "When people criticise you, there's bound to be a reaction. I could...
