No Salah, no Mane – Liverpool need to sign a forward in January as AFCON looms large

The Reds' failure to add a defender last season cost them and they cannot repeat the same mistakes in the transfer market We may still be in November, and December is stacked. But it is January which has got Liverpool fans most concerned. Traditionally, the first month of the year has not been especially kind to Jurgen Klopp and his side. It is where title bids have run off course and where cup dreams have evaporated, where injuries have gripped and form has dipped. Is history set to repeat itself in 2022?

‘I’m a woman – Iranian women’s goalkeeper debunks claim she’s a man and threatens to sue Jordanian for demanding a ‘gender verification check’

Iranian goalkeeper, Zohreh Koudaei has denied claims she's a man after Jordanian FA accused her of not being a woman. Koudaei, 32, saved two penalties in a 4-2 shoot-out victory over Jordan in Uzbekistan on September 25, helping the Iranian women's team qualified for its first-ever Women's Asia Cup. But after the game, Jordan's FA demanded 'a gender verification check' on Koudaei from the Asian Football Federation (AFC) over her performance. Reacting to the claims, Koudaei today said emphatically: 'I am a woman. This is bullying from Jordan.' 'I will sue the Jordan FA,' she added, according to Turkish newspaper Hurriyet. The Jordan FA's letter, dated November 5, cited doubts over the 'eligibility of a participating player.' It also alleged that the Iranian women's t...

Andre Ayew: Brother Jordan can score a lot of goals

he Al Sadd attacker shares his opinion on the form of his brother who has struggled to score in recent times Ghana captain Andre Ayew believes Jordan Ayew’s struggle in front of goal is not a result of a loss of confidence as widely stated.

On Sunday, he missed a glorious chance to put Ghana 1-0 up when he went one-on-one with the goalkeeper in a 2022 World Cup qualifier against South Africa, adding to what is now a long list of goal failures in recent times.

South Africa can go to Fifa but Ghana victory won’t change, says Asante-Twum

South Africa have called on world football’s governing body Fifa to review the match, particularly a first-half penalty that Andre Ayew converted to score the solitary goal. The spot-kick was awarded by Senegalese referee Maguette N’Diaye after Daniel Amartey went down under Rushine De Reuck following a corner. “That is all they [South Africa] can do.

EPL: Late Vydra strike frustrates Chelsea in Burnley draw

Chelsea were held to a surprise 1-1 draw by struggling Burnley as Matej Vydra’s late equaliser rocked the Premier League leaders on Saturday.

The Blues sit three points clear of second placed Manchester City, who won at Manchester United earlier on Saturday. Third placed Liverpool can move within one point of Chelsea if they beat West Ham on Sunday. Although Chelsea are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions, this setback ...

Awoniyi signed for Liverpool in 2015, but has spent the past six years on loan, because of his failure to obtain a work permit. He has spent this current campaign with Union Berlin in the Bundesliga. This week, Awoniyi was finally granted a UK work permit and will now be eligible to play in the Premier League. Liverpool plan to involve him in the first part of their pre-season schedule, enabling him to finally train with Jurgen Klopp’s senior group and perhaps feature in some friendly fixtures while a host of first-team players who are a...

  Manchester United legend, Ferdinand and former Liverpool star, Joe Cole have blamed Jorginho for Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat to Leicester City on Saturday They blamed the Italian international for Leicester City’s winning goal in the tight game at Wembley, which was decided by Youri Tielemans’ sublime long-range effort in the second half. Both Ferdinand and Cole criticised Jorginho over his failure to close down Tielemans quickly enough before his strike which beat Kepa Arrizabalaga and gave Leicester City their first-ever FA Cup trophy. “This is one area I don’t like in his game, he can’t get across the ground,” Ferdinand told BT Sport. “He should be the one getting across there [to stop Tielemans]. He shouldn’t be pointing at a defender to get out [to Tieleman...

President Buhari should speak to us… we didn’t vote for Garba Shehu or Femi Adesina – Dino Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye has asked President Buhari to come out and address Nigerians as people voted for him and not his media aides, Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu.   Melaye said this when he granted an interview on AIT today May 7. According to him, President Buhari’s silence is detrimental to the war against insecurity in the country. He asked the president to resign "in the interest of Nigerians who are dying."   “President Buhari needs to speak to Nigerians directly, he needs to communicate with the media. Our president is absent, and this has negative concomitant effects on the war against insecurity in the country. It is very pathetic, but our president is not available. All we hear is presidency says, we didn’t vote for Garba Shehu or Femi Adesina. All our secur...

Insecurity is a Result of the Failure of Past Leaders – Governor Umahi

The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has said that the failure of past Nigerian leaders to address the future of young people is responsible for the present insecurity in the country. Governor Umahi said this when he appeared on Channels Television on Thursday, May 6. According to the governor, it is not proper to blame the present administration for the heightened insecurity in the country as the reasons are systematic. “When people talk about the recent insecurity in our country, I keep saying that the insecurity did not just develop overnight. It has been a result of the failure of our past leaders to address the future of our youths. And this is the truth. So it’s not a question of blaming Mr President or blaming Governors or blaming APC or PDP; it is systematic and it has be...

Brighton Surge Towards Safety with Leeds Win

Brighton eased any fears of relegation with a convincing 2-0 win over Leeds that took them 10 points clear of Fulham in the drop zone. With only two wins from their past 20 home Premier League matches, Brighton needed a fast start to settle the nerves and got it when Welbeck was fouled inside the area by Ezgjan Alioski. The penalty was coolly converted by Gross. Leeds, without Kalvin Phillips to injury, lacked the attacking spark to seriously trouble the hosts and Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay both wasted huge opportunities to take the game away from Marcelo Bielsa's men. Brighton's failure to convert those chances didn't cost them though as Welbeck popped up with the second goal, skilfully making a chance for himself before firing into the bottom corner.

”Today’s Nigeria is not of a Progressive Country but as a Mass of Cumulative Failure” – Oby Ezekwesili

Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said that Nigeria under the Buhari-led administration, is not a progressive country but a mass of cumulative failure. Ezekwesili shared this thought on her Twitter handle this morning. Her tweets read; ''For 60 years, Nigeria in a classic case of failure of Nation Formation failed to make the transition from Country to Nation. Worse, it even now risks its status as a country as it steadily hobbles down the slippery slope of Fragile State to totter on the brink under @MBuhari Sadly, the *Most Representative Characterization* of today’s Nigeria is not of a Progressive Country, but as a mass of *Cumulative Failure* which is evidently depicted by its staggering Fragile State Indices increasingly over the years.

I’m a failure if i dont win the Champions League with Man City – Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola says he will be viewed as a failure as Manchester City boss if he does not win the Champions League during his time at the club. City take a 2-1 aggregate lead to Borussia Dortmund for the second leg of their quarter-final tie on Wednesday. They have not reached the semi-finals under Guardiola, going out in the last eight for the last three seasons. "I know if we don't win I'll be a failure and if we do it's 'how good is Pep'," said Guardiola. City's preparations were hampered by a series of fireworks being let off outside the team hotel in the early hours of Wednesday morning. On two occasions during the night explosions woke players and staff before a third attempt was prevented by the Blues' own security staff. City's cause will be boosted by the absenc...
