Time is flying.Every week, Fox Sports’ Joel Klatt releases his personal top 10 ranking late Saturday night or early Sunday. His list usually looks a little different from what you can expect when the new polls are released.There has been some debate if Clemson deserves to remain No. 1 in the AP and Coaches polls following Saturday’s lackluster win at North Carolina. Klatt has them nowhere near the top this week, ranking the Tigers sixth.His No. 1 team? Ohio State, which he had sharing the top spot with Alabama and Clemson last week. Here’s Klatt’s new top 10:My CFB Top 10 Wk51) @OhioStateFB 2) @AlabamaFTBL 3) @LSUfootball 4) @OU_Football 5) @GeorgiaFootball 6) @ClemsonFB 7) @BadgerFootball 8) @TexasFootball 9) @NDFootball 10) @AuburnFootball— Joel Klatt (@joelklatt) September 29, 2019Earlier this week, Klatt predicted the Buckeyes would win the national title. That’s before they demolished Nebraska in Lincoln on Saturday night.It’s true Ohio State hasn’t faced its stiffest tests yet, but the personnel first-year head coach Ryan Day has is scary good. The defense is loaded and quarterback Justin Fields looks every bit like the five-star recruit he was in 2018.The next few weeks will feature two important games for the Buckeyes: at home against Michigan State next week and at home against Wisconsin on October 26.last_img read more

Valverde pleased with Messi’s cameo in Barcelona return

first_imgLionel Messi has “done enough” in his return as Barcelona drew 0-0 with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, insisted head coach Ernesto Valverde. Messi made his first appearance of the season after recovering from a calf injury in Barca’s goalless draw away to Dortmund in their Group F opener on Tuesday. The Barca captain had been sidelined up until his second-half introduction against Dortmund, though Messi was a peripheral figure for the visitors.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career “He’s like any player who hasn’t had a pre-season,” Valverde said. “He’s had to play in a game at an incredible pace, which had already started, all without preparation. “It’s his first 30 minutes. He’s done enough. It was also the first full game for Luis Suarez.” Barca had goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen to thank for securing a point after the German star saved Marco Reus’ second-half penalty. Ter Stegen thwarted Dortmund on more than one occasion in the second 45 minutes and Valverde hailed the Germany international. Borussia Dortmund Barcelona Ter Stegen Reus Champions League“In La Liga we were saying that opponents score against us,” Valverde added. “But tonight, he was very good. We have a great goalkeeper and we benefit from that.” And Valverde was not upset with the result considering the challenges his side were facing coming into the match and the quality of their opposition.  “The result is what it is,” he explained. “We suffered a lot and have to recognise that. “It’s something we knew would happen. It was a complicated game.” Ter Stegen was the hero of the day for the Spanish side, his save on Reus helping Barcelona to a hard-fought point.  And the German was pleased to be able to turn away his international team-mate to preserve the clean sheet.  “It’s hard to study, Reus always changes,” he said. “It was a feeling I had [going to his left] and I’m glad that I could save it” Barcelona return to the pitch Saturday to face Granada in La Liga, with the defending champions looking to climb back to the top of the table.  Valverde’s side sit fifth through four matches having picked up just seven points.last_img read more

Greenwood the first Man Utd scorer born after 2000

first_imgMason Greenwood became the first player born in the 2000s to score for Manchester United when he opened the scoring against Astana on Thursday.The 17-year-old was one of three youngsters, alongside Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong, to be given a chance in the starting XI as the Red Devils lined up for the Europa League clash at Old Trafford.Greenwood had been limited to substitute appearances in the Premier League, but completed the full 90 minutes, looking lively all the way through.

Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Time for another transfer? Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career In the early stages, the forward latched onto a flick from Marcus Rashford and had a shot at goal, only to see it curl wide of the post.Then just a few minutes into the second half, a ball from a corner made its way to him, but a deflection off Antonio Rukavina kept it out.But Greenwood’s moment to shine finally arrived in the 73rd minute when he beat Dorin Rotariu and then knocked it through the legs of goalkeeper Nenad Eric.His first senior goal for the club, Greenwood’s moment of magic earned him a place in the history books as the first player born in this millennium to have found the net for the Premier League outfit. 2001 – Mason Greenwood is the first player born in the 2000s to score a senior goal for Manchester United (October 2001). Blossom.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 19, 2019But his stunning exploits will have come as no surprise to coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was confident of Greenwood’s ability before handing him his first start of the season.“Mason [Greenwood] is one of the best finishers I’ve seen, and I’ve played with quite few decent ones,” he told reporters the day before the game. “Just work hard. There are so many years ahead of you. The next game is always the most important one.“[His finishing] seems natural, but it never is. It is repetition, it is being [in the right place] and knowing how to hit a ball. Every situation you are in he does [well]. His technique is brilliant. [Greenwood] is better than me now, that’s for sure!”The youngster’s goal was the only one in a 1-0 win for the Red Devils, who return to Premier League action this Sunday when they face West Ham in London.last_img read more

Chemical fire at Port Metro Vancouver extinguished chemical fire|hazardous materials|port metro vancouver VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The chemical fire at Port Metro Vancouver is extinguished.Vancouver Fire and Rescue says the scene is safe and secure. Depending on wind conditions, the container that set ablaze Wednesday could be opened tonight.There still no word on how, or even if, the management of hazardous materials will change following yesterday’s incident.Port Metro Vancouver says it doesn’t have detailed information on what is stored there at any given time, but it can quickly find out.The port says private companies manage individual container terminals and they are the ones with up-to-date information on what is coming in and where it’s being stored.Vice President of Planning and Development Peter Xotta admits the container on fire with hazardous industrial acid had been buried under other containers.“The dangerous goods or the containers are really handled by individual shipping lines and it really depends on their commercial arrangements with each of the terminals,” he says on whether hazardous materials could be moved through the port in Delta, instead.Xotta points out they were able to find out what was inside the burning container immediately.
