Sancho exclusive: ‘I’m happy that I’ve opened doors’ for young English players with Dortmund move

A different club, a different league, a different town, a different country. Life, in football and beyond, has changed so much for Jadon Sancho since his move to Borussia Dortmund 20 months ago that it can be a bit a difficult to take it all in.

“If you’d asked me three years ago where I’d be today, I couldn’t give you an answer,” the 18-year-old told ESPN in a TV studio buried beneath the Signal Iduna Park main stand, with a huge smile on his face.nike nfl jerseys cheap paypal

“I wouldn’t have thought it would be here and me doing this well,” he said. “[The biggest surprise to me is] just how everything has gone so far. It’s gone so quickly. It’s all crazy right now.”6

The Camberwell, London-born winger has become the face of an idea, a shining star for the argument in favour of career-furthering migration. He’s the teenage conquistador who has shown his generation of English academy alumni a whole new world of possible progress across the English Channel.

“It’s a good feeling, a nice feeling,” he said of his pioneering role. “It’s a good thing to give other players the opportunities somewhere else and not just at home. Give them a wider vision of what’s out there. I’m happy that I’ve opened doors.”

But as more and more Bundesliga clubs are scrambling to sign the best British talent, desperate not to miss out on the next Sancho, the former Manchester City player warned other youngsters stranded in the Premier League’s nebulous “upside down” between the reserves and the first squad that going to the German top flight is not necessarily a cure-all.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“They do ask me what it’s like, and I tell them truthfully: It’s not easy. It’s difficult.”

Sancho admitted that he “never knew” the Bundesliga was as “tough and physical” as he found it to be after signing for the Black and Yellows in the summer of 2017. “You’ve got to be very sharp. You just have to be on point,” he said.

Kevin Muscat confident Melbourne Victory can make Champions League impact as injuries mount

On the eve of an AFC Champions League campaign and with the race to the A-League finals in the home straight, Melbourne Victory coach Kevin Muscat has issues.

Any realistic chance the defending champions had of taking top spot from Perth evaporated into the steamy Geelong night air on Saturday when Newcastle inflicted a 2-0 loss.

It was the fourth match in succession that the Victory failed to claim maximum points and the fifth in a row where they fell behind on the score sheet.

In addition to scoring concerns, Muscat is dealing with injuries and suspensions.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

Georg Niedermeier missed the GMHBA Stadium encounter after a red card in the Melbourne derby, while star Swedish striker Ola Toivonen (illness), skipper Carl Valeri (hamstring) and winger Elvis Kamsoba (knee) were also absent.5

To rub salt into the wounds, James Donachie has a suspension coming after he was sent off in injury time for a second yellow card.

Muscat is taking a glass-half full approach ahead of Tuesday night’s opening Champions League clash with Korean side Daegu FC at AAMI Park.

“With the illness and injury, the players have done remarkably well considering all of the disruptions from week to week,” Muscat said.

“At this point in time is it starting to affect us? I don’t think so because the performance didn’t earn the result but there was a lot to like about it.nike nfl jerseys cheap paypal

“We’ll go into Tuesday night’s game with confidence, I’ll make that clear now.

“It’s exciting and we’ll use these extra games that we’ve got to get better and better for the run into the end of the [A-League] season.”

Farquhar makes first outing since hemorrhage

Danny Farquhar took the mound in a game again. That was more than enough on Saturday.

Farquhar’s spring training appearance for the New York Yankees was his first game since the 32-year-old reliever collapsed in the Chicago White Sox dugout on April 20 because of a ruptured aneurysm and brain hemorrhage. The right-hander got one out and was charged with five runs in an 8-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“I felt great out there,” Farquhar said. “I was happy to be back on the mound. Obviously, the results weren’t great, but I call it a good day. I felt like a baseball player, again.”cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Farquhar allowed three hits and walked two while throwing 19 pitches in the fourth inning. He is in camp with the Yankees on a minor league deal.

“The fact that he’s on the mound and gotten to this point is pretty awesome,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “I found myself a little more emotional than I even thought. Even though it didn’t go great, I think he really appreciated how special it was for him to be back out on a mound.”6

Farquhar’s teammates moved to the top step of the third-base dugout and clapped as he walked off the mound with his glove held in his right hand.

“It felt like for better or for worse they had my back,” Farquhar said. “It was nice to have that support. I’ve never been high-fived so much giving up five runs in my career.”

Farquhar’s wife, Lexie, and children Madison (7), Landon (3) and Liam (1) were among a dozen family members and friends at the game. Madison could be heard yelling “Daddy” from the stands.

“I heard them from the beginning,” Farquhar said. “My mom, my daughter. They were screaming.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“I loved having my family here,” Farquhar added. “It means the world to have them here and see them after. Just to see how my wife was feeling, how my kids loved me. They didn’t care how good or bad I did today. It brings life into perspective on what’s important.”

Josh Bell started the inning with an opposite-field double off the wall in left. After Melky Cabrera lined out to right, a Kevin Kramer single was sandwiched between walks to Erik Gonzalez and Ke’Bryan Hayes.

Would you rather have a team of 25-homer hitters or all Gold Glovers?

This debate was a topic of discussion on last week’s Baseball Tonight podcast with Buster Olney: Would you rather have a lineup of eight 25-homer players or eight Gold Glovers? Fun question. With eight 25-homer dudes you’re going to hit 200 home runs, although 200 home runs isn’t what it used to be — 11 teams reached that figure in 2018. The Gold Glove team is going to be brilliant on defense, but you have no idea what kind of offense they bring to the table.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Buster, Tim Kurkjian and myself went with the Gold Glovers. Producer Josh Macri went with the 25-homer team. So did the listeners, as the 25-homer lineup easily won the poll on Twitter with 65 percent of the vote.5

Well, I looked into this … and let’s just say that Buster, Tim and myself were correct and Josh and the rest of you were wrong. I was surprised the poll results (with over 11,000 votes) weren’t closer, because when I think of Gold Glovers, the first names that pop into my head are Nolan Arenado, Mookie Betts, Yadier Molina and Andrelton Simmons, two superstars with the sticks and two solid hitters with legendary gloves.

Now, I suppose the 25-homer defenders could make this argument: Gold Glove winners are often selected because they had good seasons at the plate that aren’t necessarily representative of their true ability. That might be somewhat true (although more so before they reworked the way Gold Gloves were awarded a few years ago). For example, Jacoby Ellsbury’s lone Gold Glove came in 2011, which also happened to be his best offensive season, as he hit 32 home runs.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Most Gold Glovers, however, have long careers. Probably the most obscure Gold Glove winner over the past 10 seasons was Darwin Barney, the National League Gold Glover at second base in 2012. He spent three seasons as a regular, with eight seasons total in the majors. On the other hand, many members of the 25-homer club have brief careers or short stints as regulars or just one fluky 25-homer season.

So I’ll stick with my guess: Go with the Gold Glovers. Trust your old baseball writers, my friends.

Harris, Butler lead first ever 76ers win in OKC

Jimmy Butler’s magnanimous presence in the locker room is unmistakable. He walks around singing loudly along to songs, taking his personal portable speaker to the showers and barely missing a lyric while he courts a lighthearted debate with Mike Scott and Jonathon Simmons — a debate drowned out by Butler’s country music.

There has been a lot written, said and assumed about how Butler fits with the Philadelphia 76ers and what happens beyond this season, but as coach Brett Brown said after their 108-104 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Butler was the one trying to bring everything together.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

“There was an unselfishness,” Brown said. “I think that connects the dots to so many things. It’s a very unselfish group, and I thought Jimmy Butler tonight, especially, went way out of his way to live by that standard we’ve set. He was our bell ringer tonight.”7

The Process methodically, incrementally, painstakingly built the 76ers, but this group has sort of been assembled on the fly this season. Butler’s addition was the first significant shake-up, but following that with adding Tobias Harris right before the trade deadline is the big swing. And without Joel Embiid, the Sixers leaned on Butler’s playmaking (20 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists) and Harris’ scoring (32 points on 11-of-19 shooting). After the Thunder tied the game 93-93 with with 4 minutes, 40 seconds left, Harris went on an 8-0 run by himself as the Sixers took control.

“Take the shots you’re comfortable making, and he made ’em,” Butler said of Harris. “We want him to continue to be that player for us, and he’s going to win us a lot of games.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

The win broke a 19-game losing streak to the Thunder. It was the Sixers’ first win against OKC since Nov. 15, 2008, and only the second ever against the team since it relocated to Oklahoma City. Looking around the Sixers’ locker room, the longest tenured player is T.J. McConnell, but he has been with the team since only 2015, part of seven of those losses. How different were things on that November day in 2008? The teams took 21 3-pointers

Fantasy NBA Daily Notes: LeBron vs. Giannis

The Magic outscored the Warriors 14-2 in the final three minutes to pull out a compelling victory on Thursday. Orlando missed just one shot from the field during this clutch stretch, while Golden State went 1-of-7. This stretch is tied for the Warriors’ worst point differential in the final three minutes of a game under Steve Kerr.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

The Magic finished 8-3 in February and led the NBA in defensive efficiency (100) and net efficiency during that span (plus-11.9). Thursday also marked the Magic’s 18th outright win as underdogs, second most in the NBA behind the Hawks (19).6

It’s best to embrace variance when it comes to the Magic’s scoring microwave, Terrence Ross. The former Washington Huskie scored 28 points a week ago in Toronto against the team that drafted him and yet followed that with a three-point showing against the Knicks on Tuesday. Against the Warriors, Ross bounced back yet again with a team-best plus-17 net rating and scored 16 points off the bench in the critical win, evidence he’s going to shoot his way through any interim cold stretches.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

During Orlando’s stellar recent stretch of play, Ross has averaged 17.8 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and most importantly 3.2 3PG the past 12 games. Another quietly crucial element to Ross’ game is elite free throw efficiency, as he’s made 87 percent for the season and 96.6 percent from the stripe the past month. Ross doesn’t do much beyond shoot and score, but he’s a difference-maker in those categories and remains available in free agency in more than 60 percent of ESPN leagues. Ross should continue to thrive as Orlando’s version of Lou Williams in the weeks ahead.

How Matthew Dellavedova is inspiring the Cleveland Cavaliers

Matthew Dellavedova finds himself in a different situation in his second stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers than when he left in the summer of 2016. Back then, the team was coming off its first NBA championship win, and would subsequently make the Finals for another two years after Dellavedova signed with the Milwaukee Bucks.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Now, back at the Cavs after a mid-season trade, Dellavedova returned not to a championship — or even a playoff caliber team — but to a squad struggling to find its identity, not to mention wins.

Dellavedova says it was “different” coming from Milwaukee back to Cleveland.5

“I guess coming from Milwaukee where they’re top of the East, we’ve got some work to do here,” Dellavedova tells ESPN. “You just got to look at it as a challenge and see the long term vision, and make sure we’re working on getting better.”

A new, but familiar, environment also means that Dellavedova has gotten a chance to play more after falling out of the Bucks rotation towards the end of his tenure there. In just 12 appearances for Milwaukee, Dellavedova averaged 8.1 minutes and 1.7 points per game – both career lows. Since being traded in early December, he’s played 33 games for the Cavs — mainly as a backup to Collin Sexton — but Dellavedova has seen his own productivity increase. So far he’s averaging 7.5 points, 4.4 assists in just over 20 minutes a night.

Dellavedova says he’s enjoying the opportunities to help the young Cavalier players develop further.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

“It’s been great getting out there and playing, especially the last couple of months you can see the improvement,” he said.

Wherever he’s been, Dellavedova has been lauded for his leadership skills. In Milwaukee, coach Mike Budenholzer praised Dellavedova for being one on the locker room leaders, despite not playing many minutes. Back in Cleveland, it’s no different. Head coach Larry Drew appreciates having a player with Dellavedova’s pedigree to mentor the young players on his team.

Colts center Ryan Kelly expects to play in AFC wild-card game

The Colts are on their way to having their starting offensive line back together for the AFC wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans on Saturday.

Center Ryan Kelly, the anchor of the offensive line, was a full participant in practice Wednesday. The Pro Bowl alternate said he has every intention of playing against the Texans after missing the regular-season finale at Tennessee with a neck injury.

Kelly suffered the neck injury, which caused pressure on his nerves and impacted his arm strength, against the New York Giants in Week 16.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

“It was a big week last week, and I felt after the [Tennessee] game and going through some walkthrough stuff [Tuesday], I felt like the strength was back,” Kelly said. “Doing some things to hopefully help my neck stay in the same spot and not move around too much. Other than that, I feel well.”6

The Colts will practice Thursday and have a walk-through Friday before departing for Houston. As long as Kelly doesn’t have any setbacks, the Colts will have their starting line back together for the first time since Nov. 18.

The Colts tied New Orleans for the fewest sacks allowed in the NFL with just 18 during the regular season.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

To no surprise, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton did not practice Wednesday as he continues to nurse his injured ankle. He originally suffered the injury during the second quarter of the Dec. 9 game at Houston.

Hilton said Tuesday that he will be playing vs. Houston, where he has 932 yards receiving and seven touchdowns in seven career games. He has only practiced twice, albeit as a limited participant, since the week leading up that Dec. 9 game due to ankle and shoulder injuries.

“[The ankle is] not allowing me to practice, which I love doing,” Hilton said. “I just have to rest it and get it as healthy as I can for Saturday.”

Where Lakers and Celtics can look for inspiration

Even with a disappointing loss Monday in Detroit where officiating upset them, the Pacers are 8-2 in February. They’re back in third place in the East. They’re second in defensive rating in the league for the month (speaking of teams you probably haven’t been paying attention to, the Orlando Magic are first).

Coach Nate McMillan has sold his team on role definition, which is hard enough with your average NBA squad. Considering McMillan has six key players who will be free agents this summer and another, Domantas Sabonis, playing for an extension, that’s a stacked deck that he has been able to manage.cheap nike nfl jersey

McMillan, president Kevin Pritchard and GM Chad Buchanan have an open-door policy when discussing free agency internally. If a player wants to talk about it, management is unafraid. They run a business, and in Indiana it’s not a bottomless money business, but they’ve tried to be transparent when the topic arises.6

Whether that’s a secret to success or not, the Pacers don’t play like a team full of guys worried about their next paycheck. They happily play an egalitarian offense that spreads it around with seemingly minimal ego or agenda issues. They’ve had at least five double-figure scorers 52 times in 61 games, the highest number in the league. They’ve had seven players in double figures 12 times; they’re 11-1 in those games.

They have veterans who are leaders, Thaddeus Young especially according to those around the team, and players who seem to be agreeable to platooning — particularly their point guards and big men — depending on matchups. And if they aren’t, it hasn’t become public.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Their March schedule is brutal and they might not hang on to the No. 3 seed until the wire. But their professionalism during some challenges has been exemplary. And frankly, it could be an example to some of their peers out there.

Namely, one of the teams that’s eating their dust at the moment is Boston. The Celtics have been anything but together for so much of this season. A root has been Kyrie Irving and some of his younger teammates, who have grated on one another as they’ve looked to work toward opposite purposes repeatedly during the season.

Aaron Hicks signs 7-year extension with Yankees

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman estimated that he and Hicks’ representatives began discussing the extension in December. Within the past few days, the conversations picked up.

Cashman’s message to Hicks once the deal was complete? “I’m betting on you.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“He has more gas in his tank, he has more mountains to climb,” Cashman said. “We’re excited by a player who came here that wasn’t a finished product and had a lot of upside. We engaged him on a lot of levels about the talent that we thought he possessed.”

A .236 career hitter, Hicks was traded to the Yankees from Minnesota after the 2015 season.6

After scuffling to a .217 batting average his first season in pinstripes and struggling to stay healthy his second year in the Bronx, Hicks had a career year in 2018. He set career highs in games played (137), homers (27), RBIs (79), runs scored (90) and WAR (4.7).
“I want to win a World Series,” Hicks said then. “I’m tired of losing. We’ve come so close, but I’m tired of saying we came close.”

Hicks echoed those sentiments Monday when he said he believes the Yankees are constructed well enough to contend for nike nfl jerseys cheap chinachampionships throughout the entirety of his new contract.

Other Yankees feel the same way now that Hicks and the recently re-signed Luis Severino are locked into their long-term future.

“[Hicks] is a big part of this team and a big part of our success. … I always love playing by him,” Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge said. “To hear he got seven years, we’ll be playing together for a long time.”
