first_imgRoma captain Daniele de Rossi: Retirement ever closerby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma captain Daniele de Rossi admits he senses his career is coming to the end.The 35-year-old has been out since October 28 with a cartilage injury, and is unlikely to be fit to face Juventus on Saturday.“When I was young I’d have signed in any way to play half the Serie A games I have,” De Rossi told DAZN.“I’m a lucky guy, I’ve done the job I love, in the city I love, with the people I love. It weighs on me to look over the ravine, because I know the end is near, especially with this injury.“I’ve tasted what it means to be away from the squad, and I know it’s going to hurt me when I stop doing this job.“Whether that’s six months, a year, or three years, time is running out on my career.“This is the most serious injury of my career, it’s a cartilage problem, I’ve suffered a serious injury. It would be very serious if I were to tear it again at 35.“It takes time, I’ve started running and kicking the ball but I’m still behind.“The future? I have this dream of being a Coach, and if I have to think about all the things a Coach has to do what scares me most is doing 100 interviews a week!” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Ex-Molde defender Toivo: What Man Utd players can expect from Dempseyby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Molde defender Joona Toivo is happy for Mark Dempsey over his return to Manchester United.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-time assistant has followed the Norwegian to Old Trafford and was back helping out at Carrington for the first time this week alongside Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.”He was really enthusiastic in his coaching. As a person, he has this fire in him – everything is done to the full,” Finland international Toivo told the Manchester Evening News.”I think he is great at creating fighting spirit in the team and encouraging players to be the best they can be. He has a lot of knowledge about football and understands the game really well.”There was a lot of concentration on first touches and observing the play with Mark in training: where and how you took the first touch. He played as a midfielder when he was a player and he often said ‘play what you see’. By that, he also meant to keep it simple and to not try difficult stuff.”He was really like a friend. He’s a guy who loves to tell stories and jokes and loves to make people laugh and play pranks.” last_img read more

It was that all too familiar feeling. After a dominant 34-25 scoreline heading into the break, the question lingering in the back of every Buckeye fan’s head was slowly becoming a reality – could they really lose this game? I wanted to believe I went colorblind, or that Ohio State started the half wearing Kansas’ jerseys as an early April Fool’s prank, but that wasn’t the case. A common sequence transpired for the next 20 minutes. Kansas responded, breaking hearts in Columbus, eliminating the Buckeyes from the Final Four, 64-62. So there is a new question for Buckeye fans – what could be next for the OSU men’s basketball team? It can be expected that changes will be made when a team travels the distance OSU did in the tournament. Between coaches wanting to find a new home and players graduating or entering the next level of competition, it is a common chain of events. The question can be summarized as a big “what if?” but a prediction is necessary with all the talent surrounding the team. Former guard William Buford will be the only player leaving the roster due to his senior status. Forward Evan Ravenel and guard Alex Rogers will be the only seniors on the roster beginning next year. The leading scorer, former sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, is officially out. The sophomore announced his departure on Wednesday, opening up the center position for the Buckeyes. Satch Sullinger, Jared Sullinger’s father, weighed in on the topic to WBNS-10TV’s ‘Wall to Wall Sports’ following the loss on Saturday: “The one question that I’ll have for Jared is, at this point, coming back, what do you have to prove?” The All-American didn’t have much more to prove. Sullinger led the team in points and rebounds for the past two years. If health was a major concern, it was no surprise that we saw the last game Sullinger plays in the scarlet and gray. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas will have until April 10 to make his decision on entering the NBA Draft, according to the NCAA. With Buford and Sullinger gone, and the possibility of Thomas joining them, there will be a void that needs to be filled. When it comes down to it, the Buckeyes are young. Freshman forward Sam Thompson and sophomore guard Jordan Sibert are prepared to take the two open positions. Thompson played in each game this season and has impressive athleticism and ball handling. On the other hand, Sibert appeared in 24 games this season, but offers good size alongside sophomore guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. Bearing in mind the departure from Sullinger, Ravenel would be a solid replacement. Ravenel was the only other player to start for the Buckeyes this season providing plenty of minutes off the bench during the tournament as well, but don’t be for certain he is the answer. Enter freshman center Amir Williams. The soon-to-be-sophomore stands in at 6-foot-11. Sitting behind Sullinger, he didn’t see much action this season, but Buckeye fans took notice when he stepped in against Syracuse in the Elite Eight. With the youth on the bench and the talent to fill the void; the team should be able to make another strong push into the tournament. read more

first_imgAfter almost three months since Alexis Sanchez left Arsenal for Manchester United in exchange for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jose Mourinho is starting to get a grip on how the talented lone wolf behaves exactly.A deal, which in the beginning seemed to have only one winning side – the Red Devils – has turned into a nightmare for that same team – Mkhitaryan has been performing extremely well since the transfer and on the other side, Sanchez is still struggling to find his place and adapt to the new surroundings at Old Trafford – out of the 13 played games, he has scored only 2 goals.This has led Mourinho to consider dropping him for the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“Rotating is not the right word,” Mourinho shared, according to football.london. “If I play a player against Bournemouth and the player is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final. So is not rotating, because rotating looks like a player plays against Bournemouth to give a rest to somebody that is going to play against Spurs in the semi-final.” “So the word is not rotation, it is an opportunity for people, for some people to play and to try to get a place in the team for Spurs. Some of the guys that played today don’t have a place in that team, they don’t have a place in that team,” Mourinho went on to add after the 1-0 upset against West Brom on Sunday.last_img read more

first_imgParis Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva warned his teammates that Manchester United are always “dangerous” ahead of their Champions League showdown next yearFollowing Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to rivals Liverpool, manager Jose Mourinho was removed from his post with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being brought to succeed the Portuguese on an interim basis for the remainder of the season.This came after United’s worst start to a season in 28 years with the club down in sixth-place in the Premier League and 11 points behind Chelsea in the final top-four spot.However, Silva believes PSG would be unwise to take United for granted under the relatively unproven Solskjaer – who has never coached a major European club before.“United, it is always a dangerous team,” said Silva, according to Goal. “Under Mourinho, I think they could have done better.Colin Dagba, France,How Dagba become one of PSG’s regulars Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 21-year-old full-back Colin Dagba had a very difficult time to break into professional football, but now he’s one of PSG’s regular players.“The motivation of the players is very strong, they will be motivated to play well, to win matches, and this is a team that will cause us a lot of difficulties so we will have to prepare.“Many people think that the draw is good because Manchester are not playing well, but they still a very good team.“They have a history in football, experienced players, and with the change of coach, they will try to push a little more. But we are very motivated too.”PSG will travel to Old Trafford for the first leg of their last-16 tie on February 12 before hosting United in the return leg at the Parc Des Princes on March 6.last_img read more

first_imgStill, Dolan says his company likes to avoid “overactive markets.” “Right now there’s a lot of play with workflow management and document management at law firms,” he added. “I won’t touch that, we like the dark corners.”Mobile is viewed much the same way online was a few years ago: a huge opportunity but no one really knows what to do with it yet. “Most content businesses now have some sort of digital business. I think soon they will all also be building mobile,” said Quadrangle’s Ezersky. “Right now, the only ones making money from mobile are the carriers. Until a couple big players figure this out and start butting heads, it won’t happen. We’re already at a place where venture capitalists who invested in mobile a few years ago are disappointed.”Multiples Continue to Soar for OnlineEBITDA multiples are starting to see significant disparity. According to DeSilva + Phillips managing partner Reed Phillips, b-to-b EBITDA multiples averaged 11.5x in 2007, compared to 12x to 13x EBITDA for consumer publishing deals. “Those multiples will continue to carry over into 2008 with high quality companies, while third tier companies will continue to struggle,” says Phillips.Meanwhile, DeSilva + Phillips said EBITDA for digital content companies averaged between 7x and 15x EBITDA, while ad networks averaged 10x to 18x EBITDA, and social networks averaged 9x to 16x EBITDA.Deal CultureDespite the bad press for private equity, some speakers said private equity ownership seems to be more forgiving than the public market these days. “VNU couldn’t operate in the public market—now they’re still the same size and because the CEO isn’t making quarterly reports, he can make tough decisions,” says Strauss Zelnick, partner at ZelnickMedia.Dolan advised publishers to keep their operators out of M&A and focused on the business. “Our analogy is, growing organically is farming culture and M&A is hunter-killer culture,” he said, prompting moderator Charles Engros Jr., managing partner at Morgan, Lewis and Brockius, to quip, “That’s a good analogy because sometimes what you’re hunting kills you.” Strategic operators and private equity investors are looking for opportunities in the development of a “fourth leg of the stool,” speakers said today at the annual DeSilva + Phillips Dealmakers Summit. Attractive media companies are going to look very different going forward. “We’re glum about newspapers, and cautious about TV and magazines,” said Peter Ezersky, managing principal at Quadrangle Group LLC.While only a few members of the audience thought the market is in recession right now, the majority said things would get worse before they get better. That has prompted even longtime players in the magazine market to change what they’re looking for. “A lot of our portfolio is made up of advertising-based services but in 2007 we didn’t buy a single ad-supported business,” said Peggy Koenig, managing partner at private equity firm ABRY Partners, which owns consumer enthusiast publisher F&W and b-to-b publisher Cygnus. “A lot of old media has been disrupted. We see much more opportunity now with information services.”Dolan Media, which recently performed a $196 million IPO, has developed a series of services that president and CEO Jim Dolan says are economy neutral or even counter-cyclical, such as a mortgage foreclosure service and continuing legal education.“It’s an easy step from giving them information to giving them services to help them,” Dolan says. “It’s an avenue of growth we hadn’t thought of before 2005. What we’re doing with services is what many publishers are trying to do with online, and that’s build communities. This isn’t an abandonment of anything, doesn’t take away from other services.”last_img read more
