Tottenham boss Pochettino: Everyone wants to beat usby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes his team is the one everyone wants to beat!Spurs are the outside bet for the title, sitting six points behind leaders Liverpool in third place.But Pochettino is proud of his team’s showing this season and insists they are often seen as the biggest scalp in the league.”We’re the team to beat,” Pochettino told Standard Sport ahead of tonight’s FA Cup third-round tie at Tranmere. “It’s not arrogant, it’s realistic. “[People say], ‘How are Tottenham there?’ — a club like Chelsea can spend big money on a transfer [Christian Pulisic] and then send him on loan. “Do you think Tottenham can do this? No. But in the last few years, Tottenham are fighting with this type of club. “That’s why no-one likes Tottenham much, that’s why everyone wants to challenge us. “It’s a massive game for us every time. Wolves beat us and they behaved like they won the Premier League. Then on Wednesday they lost to Crystal Palace. It’s because Tottenham have created something special — and now we are a target. “When we fought with Leicester, everyone wanted to kill us! For many people we’re not very successful because we haven’t won a trophy [but] people respect the way we’re doing it.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say
SchefterAdam Schefter recently had a sit-down interview with Greg Hardy. The interview (in parts and in full) has been shown across ESPN’s platforms today.You can view some of the interview here. In the interview, Hardy, who is currently unsigned after playing for the Dallas Cowboys in 2015, says he has never hit a woman. Hardy was referencing the 2014 incident with his former girlfriend in which he allegedly hit her multiple times, causing what appeared to be significant injuries. The former Carolina Panther was charged and convicted, but the case was thrown out in 2015 after Hardy appealed. “I’ve never put my hand on any woman,” Hardy says.Schefter appeared on The Dan Patrick Show this morning to discuss the interview. A transcript of some of what Schefter said: Schefter: What he meant by that was he feels like he should not have put himself in that situation around that woman at that time of night around alcohol, and that was his mistake he should never have done that. But in his mind he swears he never put a finger on this woman. And people can believe what they want.Patrick: Do you believe it?Schefter: Doesn’t matter what I believe Dan, right?—–Schefter: I went in with the idea that this guy is a monster. I came out of there with a very different feeling. I came out of there feeling this is a guy who has managed to say the wrong things at the wrong time.Schefter is now getting crushed for what he’s said about Hardy and for interviewing him. One of his colleagues, Michelle Beadle, even criticized him on-air on ESPN for giving the NFL defensive lineman a platform. For the love of f&[email protected] Dude doesn’t admit to wrongdoing. Dude has changed? I give the hell up.— Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle) April 5, 2016Beadle isn’t alone, either.Posting illegally obtained medical records didnt activate the integrity gene of Schefter. So a softball Q&A with a womanizer wouldn’t either— Marshall (@M_W_19) April 5, 2016Greg Hardy interview…WTF? https://t.co/JYFcmhDVkl— Melissa Jacobs (@thefootballgirl) April 5, 2016Hardy’s comments were bad. But the fact that ESPN and Schefter gave him a platform for redemption is even worse: https://t.co/9NLFgULiuj— Lindsay Gibbs (@linzsports) April 5, 2016If ESPN decided on its own to send Schefter to interview Hardy instead of Rachel Nichols or Jeremy Schapp or Bob Ley, well, that’s a problem— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) April 5, 2016Of course Adam Schefter bought into Greg Hardy’s bullshit: https://t.co/4vre5nvXAV— Deadspin (@Deadspin) April 5, 2016Schefter discussed the interview in-depth on The Dan Patrick Show today, but he’s likely going to have to further defend his position in the coming days.
zoom Japan’s NYK Line, MTI Co. Ltd., and Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU) have developed a highly efficient propeller by analyzing the conditions surrounding vessel propellers in actual operation.The propeller, which will achieve a 1.2 percent reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by improving fuel efficiency, will be installed on two newly built containerships scheduled for delivery in 2019.NYK informed that the project partners analyzed the condition of a propeller in operation on an oceangoing vessel. Afterward, they confirmed that the simulation data matched the actual conditions to a high probability. The highly reliable simulation was then used to achieve further optimization of propeller design and thus improve fuel efficiency.In collaboration with shipping companies and shipbuilders, the three companies “will continue to make use of their expertise to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society through the provision and operation of vessels demonstrating excellent environmental performance,” NYK said.The analysis was conducted by observing the cavitation and measuring the flow velocity around the propeller. Cavitation is a phenomenon in which air bubbles are generated when the pressure in a liquid suddenly drops. Excessive cavitation on the propeller blade causes ship vibration and leads to erosion of the propeller.

The 1996 Dream Team might be the best basketball team ever put together, but Team USA in the London Olympics achieved something no other team has ever done.With the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony leading the way, the Americans set Olympic records in a 156-73 explosion against Nigeria.It was a phenomenal shooting display, to say the least. How phenomenal? Let us count the ways:The U.S. scored a record 78 points by halftime. 100 points was on the board with still five minutes remaining in the third quarter.Anthony eclipsed the Team USA single-game scoring record with 37 points in less than three quarters. He made 10 of 12 three-pointers.The 26 made 3s were an Olympic record.The Americans set a established a new record for field goals with 59The 71 per cent shooting percentage was a record.The 83-point margin of victory was a new“Our guys just couldn’t miss,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said.The U.S. stopped running fast breaks after halftime in an attempt to not embarrass its opponent. Didn’t matter.“When we get hot, it’s a big problem,” Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers said. “So you have all these guys on one team and then all get hot on the same night, it’s tough.”Bryant had 14 of his 16 points in the first quarter. Russel Westbrook had 21 points, Kevin Love, 15 and Kevin Durant 14.“It’s a great accomplishment to get that record,” said Anthony, who broke Stephon Marbury’s scoring mark of 31 against Spain in 2004. “We did it in a very highly classy way. We went out there and we played basketball. We made shots. We make shots like that and play the way we played tonight, that record could have come on any team.”

It’s not because the Blues are perpetually lousy — in their 51 seasons, they’ve failed to qualify for the playoffs on only nine occasions. But they’ve never won a Stanley Cup, and they haven’t advanced to a Stanley Cup Final since doing so three consecutive times from 1967-68 to 1969-70.1These were the franchise’s first three seasons, and they arguably advanced to the final only because they were the least awful team in the newly formed West Division, which included only expansion teams. They were swept in all three of those finals and were outscored 43-17.Those early failures didn’t derail the Blues — they qualified for the playoffs in six of their following nine seasons before embarking on a streak of 25 consecutive playoff berths from 1979-80 to 2003-04. That streak is tied for the third-longest in NHL history. But while the three other clubs to match or exceed St. Louis’s streak went to the Stanley Cup Final at least three times during their runs, the Blues teams advanced beyond the second round on only two occasions. Those Blues were like a weird second cousin: always showing up to the party but never having much to say.But all that might change this season. The Blues are currently locked in a 2-2 tie with the Dallas Stars with a spot in the Western Conference finals on the line. St. Louis might be setting its fans up for yet another postseason disappointment in what has been a long line of them — but this could also be the year that the bounces finally go in the team’s favor, for once.The six seasons immediately following the end of St. Louis’s long playoff streak were lean for the Blues: They qualified for the playoffs just once, in 2008-09, and were promptly swept in the first round by the Vancouver Canucks. But aside from 2017-18, the Blues have used the past eight seasons to reestablish themselves as perennial playoff participants. Just like the teams in the streak years, the Blues of the 2010s haven’t advanced to the Stanley Cup Final. The Blues usually stay on brand: They are almost always pretty good, but they are seldom ever great.That’s especially been the case since the dawn of the 1990s, back when St. Louis featured a string of stars including Brett Hull, Grant Fuhr, Adam Oates, Al MacInnis and (eventually) Chris Pronger to form potent contenders in the West — on paper, at least. Since the 1989-90 season, no NHL team has underperformed in the postseason more than the Blues in terms of actual versus expected championships. Based on a logistic regression using Hockey-Reference.com’s Simple Rating System (SRS) scores2Which estimate the strength of every team in the NHL by measuring a team’s average goal differential after adjusting for strength of schedule. from each regular season, we would have expected the Blues to have won 1.4 Stanley Cups over that span; instead, they won zero. According to this measure of postseason disappointment, the next-closest NHL team since 1990 is the Ottawa Senators, who won zero Cups despite an expectation of 1.2 titles.Compared with the other three major sports leagues, the plight of St. Louis Blues fans is only exceeded by those of fans who support the Oklahoma City Thunder (nee Seattle SuperSonics), Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics, Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz. It’s a motley crew of losers that residents of the Gateway City would rather not be associated with. St. Louis is among pro sports’ most disappointing teamsBiggest shortfalls between actual and expected* championships by sport, 1990-2018 7Tigers0-0.7Clippers0-0.6 8Falcons0-0.6Predators0-0.6 4Braves1-1.0Trail Blazers0-1.4 249ers1-1.2Senators0-1.2 * Expected championships is based on a logit regression between a team’s regular season Simple Rating System (SRS) score and whether it won a championship.Source: Sports-Reference.com 10Dolphins0-0.5Wild0-0.5 Compounding their failures is the fact that the Blues have the fifth-best goal differential in the NHL over that same span3The four teams ahead of the Blues — the Red Wings, Bruins, Devils and Penguins — have combined to win 13 Stanley Cups since 1990. and have been third-best team in terms of SRS. Always pretty good, never great.Their destiny as also-rans aside, the Blues are hardly the only historic disappointments still competing for the Stanley Cup this season. If we look back as far as the 1969-70 season, the Boston Bruins and San Jose Sharks each rank in the bottom third of the NHL in terms of actual titles versus expected titles. Indeed, the Sharks — like the Blues — are still titleless. Wouldn’t that make for a devastating Western Conference finals, in which one of those unfortunate franchises — and fan bases — had to go home empty-handed?Hope isn’t lost for the Blues just yet. Despite being deadlocked with the Stars, they’ve got home ice advantage on their side. What’s not on their side is the current form of rookie goaltending sensation Jordan Binnington. The netminder stormed onto the scene in the middle of the season, posting audacious numbers en route to collecting 24 wins in just 30 starts. But Binnington seems to have hit a rookie wall at just the wrong time: His quality starts percentage in the playoffs is 60 percent, down significantly from the 67 percent mark he posted during the regular season.If the Blues are going to put an end to a half-century of misery, they’ll need their wunderkind between the pipes to rediscover the form that earned him the starting job in the first place. After all, it’s hard to win a Stanley Cup without a hot goalie. Otherwise, the good folks of St. Louis know how this movie will end, because they’ve seen it many, many times before. 6Titans/Oilers0-0.8Canucks0-1.0 6Dodgers0-0.9Magic0-0.8 8(Devil) Rays0-0.7Pacers0-0.5 NFLTitlesVs.
