Brentford Close to Finalising Eriksen Deal

Brentford are close to finalising terms on a six-month contract with Christian Eriksen. The Bees are now in the process of doing due diligence on his fitness to play. He will also need to obtain a work permit. The medical process Eriksen will have to go through will be more complicated than the typical new signing given he suffered a cardiac arrest just seven months ago, while playing for Denmark at Euro 2020, and has an ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) fitted to his heart. Eriksen would need to be signed off by a club-assigned sports cardiologist before being registered to play in the Premier League. The FA would not conduct its own cardiology report but it would review the signing club's cardiological assessment before giving the go-ahead. The FA would expect...

I could have signed elsewhere – Harry Maguire

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire says he ‘could have signed elsewhere’, with Ralf Rangnick’s side in crisis. Maguire signed for Manchester United from Leicester City in an £80million deal in 2019, rejecting Manchester City in the process. In less than six months after joining the club, the England international was made club captain but he’s come under severe criticism this term for his performances, which have suffered a dramatic dip. Reports in England suggest there’s deep-rooted divisions in the Red Devils dressing room, with some players, including Maguire himself questioning the influence on Cristiano Ronaldo in the team. Maguire said he could have moved elsewhere instead of joining Red Devils, in comments that are unlikely to go down well with supporters. ‘I c...

Bundesliga: Bayern Munich end Freiburg’s Unbeaten Run to Stay top

Bayern Munich opened a four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga Saturday with a 2-1 home win over Freiburg, who suffered their first defeat in any competition this season.

Bayern have now scored 100 goals this calendar year, one short of the record for a German club, set when Cologne netted 101 times in 1977. Freiburg substitute Janik Haberer caused a few nervous looks in the Bayern ranks when the visitors finally beat Manuel Neuer in stoppage time.

Chris Pratt is called out for praising his current wife for giving him “healthy” baby after having son with previous wife who suffered health issues

Chris Pratt has been criticized for praising his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger, for giving him a "healthy daughter". The actor's action was called "cringe and vile" considering that his son with ex Anna Faris, Jack, has suffered serious health issues over the years. On Thursday, Nov. 4, Pratt, 42, took to Instagram to praise his wife. He shared a photo of him and Schwarzenegger, 31, and wrote: "She’s given me an amazing life, a gorgeous healthy daughter, she chews so loudly that sometimes I put in my ear buds to drown it out, but that’s love!" Fans reacted, telling him his statement about her giving him a "healthy" child would have been better left unsaid as it comes off as an insult to his former wife Anna Faris and the son they have together. Chris with Katherine (L...

Ian Wright exposes Tottenham’s major problem ahead of Man Utd clash

Former Arsenal star, Ian Wright, has exposed Tottenham Hotspur’s major problem under their manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, ahead of Spurs’ Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday. Wright said Tottenham’s major problem under Santo is the midfield. Tottenham started the current campaign on a good note with four consecutive wins against Arsenal, Manchester City, Wolves and Watford, but have since suffered a drastic dip in form. Santo’s side have lost five of their last eleven matches in all competitions. “I think with Nuno, his major problem is his midfield,” Wright said on Optus Sport’s The Kelly & Wrighty Show. “You have got Harry Kane, who is not getting chances. We know everything that’s happened with Harry Kane, he’s trying to do his stuff and trying to...

Ten-man Manchester United suffered one of their worst defeats in recent memory as rivals Liverpool piled pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 5-0 thrashing at Old Trafford.
