Carragher, Redknapp criticise Becker after Liverpool’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham

Former Liverpool stars, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp, have criticised goalkeeper Alisson Becker following Liverpool’s Premier League 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Sunday. An own goal from Becker and a goal each from Pabio Fornals and Kurt Zouma ensured West Ham defeated Liverpool. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Divock Origi did score for Jurgen Klopp’s side at the London Stadium. But Carragher and Redknapp believe Becker was partly to blame for all three goals the team conceded. “Oh yeah, he’s got to save it. He [Alisson] should have done better on all three goals, no doubt about that,” Carragher told Sky Sports. “In some ways, I’m thinking, “You know what, I would rather run back”. What do we gain out of an offside? Nothing, we’ve just got the ball 60 yards fr...

Why Ronaldo needs playing time after being rested by Man Utd – Portugal coach, Santos

Portugal coach, Fernando Santos, has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo needs playing time after being rested by Manchester United because it is important for him at this stage of his career. Ronaldo was dropped by Man United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in their Premier League 1-1 draw with Everton last weekend at Old Trafford. The 36-year-old surprisingly started on the bench but came on in the second half as the game ended in a draw after normal time. Solskjaer was heavily criticised for his decision to bench Ronaldo, while former Man United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson was caught on camera telling ex-UFC fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov that he felt the call to drop the forward gave Everton a boost.

Super Falcons On The March Again by Patrick Omorodion

Human wants are truly insatiable. When it is hot, they want it cold and when it is cold they want it hot. They are always looking for what is not. When the senior men’s national team, the Super Eagles were getting ready to storm Russia for the FIFA World Cup, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF and its sports wear partners came out with new jersey designs which they launched in London. Most Nigerian fans rather than express joy that the Eagles were going to the World Cup with new jerseys, lambasted the football house for launching the jerseys in London instead of Abuja or Lagos.

Jimi Agbaje Explains Why He Is Not Campaigning Yet

Many Lagosians have criticised Jimi Agbaje for being "too quiet" and not making his presence felt in the political landscape of Lagos. The criticisms come in two forms: 1) Some people say that Mr Agbaje is only seen when it's time to contest elections and then he disappears after losing the election and is not seen until four years later when it's time to contest another election. They say that he doesn't speak out about the issues that affect Lagosians in the intervening years between elections. For example, they say that he didn't say anything when issues like poor refuse collection and terrible traffic jams were plaguing Lagosians. Some people compare him to Engineer Funsho Williams who always spoke about issues that affected Lagosians, regardless of whether it was an election year...
