Newcastle’s emphatic win at Fulham marred by uncertainty over Rafael Benitez’s future


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

hey came to London in their thousands, by railway, road and riverboat cruise, to show their appreciation for a team which effortlessly tossed Fulham aside, but mainly to beg manager Rafael Benitez to stay.

These are good times to be a Newcastle United supporter, following a group of players who take immense pride in the shirt, led by an astute and popular manager, with genuine optimism this could be the start of something special.

Yet, in the back of everyone’s mind there is fear, a nagging, sickening feeling that a disaster lurks around the corner, that Benitez will depart and plunge the club back into the sort of crippling depression that has soured so many of the 12 years Mike Ashley has been in charge.

Ashley and Benitez will meet later this week to discuss where they go from here.  It would be madness to let Benitez go, but Ashley has made so many stupid, harmful decisions in the past, nobody is entirely confident he will not do so again. He is not a man who has ever fretted about winning a popularity contest.

“In the end it has been a really successful season,” said Benitez. “The fans have been fantastic, ever since I t expect a major exodus from Manchester City should their two season Champions League ban stand.Zabaleta faced his former teammates in midweek for a 2-0 defeat.”I went to see some of the lads in the changing room and we talked a little bit about the got here, I want to give them something back.

“I spoke to the owner in the dressing room and he said thank you very much for the season, he congratulated the team.”

enitez wants Newcastle to aspire to be something more than a club that survives. So do the fans, rising as one to applaud him as he emergeeter Crouch says they should be moving for Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho.The 19-year-old has been the subject of strong interest from the Reds’ arch-rivals Manchester United.However, Crouch questioned whether Old Trafford would actually be the d from the tunnel, the noise – helped by the fact around 1200 of them had got to the game via a booze cruise along the Thames – appearing to take him by surprise.

The Spaniard repeatedly looked and waved in their direction. You could almost see his mind spinning, the inner turmoil of the decision-making process. He is unlikely to be loved and idolised like this elsewhere, but is that enough on its own for a new contract to be signed?

The game took over and so did Newcastle, taking the lead after just nine minutes when Jonjo Shelvey was allowed to control Matt Ritchie’s corner with one touch and smash it into the roof of the net with his second.

A good start turned into a fantastic one when Sergio Rico failed to deal with Christian Atsu’s shot and Ayoze Perez tapped in the rebound. Both goals were followed by chants pleading with Benitez to stay.

ulham dominated possession and territory, without managing to pull a goal back. Calum Chambers dragged a shot  wide before the former Newcastle striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic glanced a header wide when he should have scored.

ulham simply lacked the imagination and skill to worry a well-drilled Benitez side and Newcastle made it three on the hour, Fabian Schar powerful heading in another Ritchie corner. Salomon Rondon made it four, scoring at the second attempt, from a tight angle. It was Newcastle’s biggest away win under Benitez, everybody hopes it is not the last.

“I’m not sure the result reflected the game, but we were lacklustre,” said Fulham manager Scott Parker. “There are some glaring things we need to work on if we are going to be successful, standards need to rise across the club. I’m sure the owners will do everything in their power to keep our best players here, but we are going to be vulnerable.”

Bills Today: Pro Bowl week a factor in Tyrod's affinity for new staff


Here’s the Bills news of note for March 13th.

**1 – Pro Bowl week a factor in Tyrod’s affinity for new staff

When Taylor went to the Pro Bowl in 2016, Andy Reid’s Kansas City staff was coaching one of the two squads for the Pro Bowl. Taylor wound up on the team coached by Reid’s staff, which included Culley.

“Getting a chance to work with (quarterbacks) coach (David) Culley at the Pro Bowl, that was a quick week, but just being around those guys helped,” said Taylor.

Taylor naturalManchester City risk missing out on signing Juventus fullback Joao Cancelo.Tuttosport says City won’t push through a deal for Cancelo until they sell Danilo.City have put the Brazil fullback up for sale, but are still waiting for firm offers.In Cancelo’s case, along with City, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are also interested in the defender.Juve want €55-60m to sell Cancelo this had some casual conversations at One Bills Drive and other members of the offensive staff during his rehab period in January and February, but seeing how Culley operated as a coach during a “game” week at the Pro Bowl provided him with more insight as to what things would be like during the regular season. It only helped to convince Taylor that if something could be worked out between him and Buffalo concerning his contract that it would be beneficial.

“This is the place to be,” he said. “Like I’ve said from day one, my commitment is to this team, to this community, to do whatever it takes to get a winning tradition back and I’m still committed to doing that each and every day.”

Seeing the Bills sign a pair of fullbacks early in the free agency period had some Bills fans scratching their heads. Why two?

Head coach Sean McDermott provided an explanation for such an approach.

“Fullback is a big part of this offense, and let’s say this: it’s not limited to playing the fullback position,” said McDermott in reference to Pat DiMarco and Mike Tolbert. “There’s versatility within that position, and I had the chance to be around Mike for a number of years in Carolina and I know what he brings to the table in terms of leadership, intangibles again, and what happens in that locker room on Monday through Saturday. So that’s a big part of it, and then Mike’s versatility on the field with the ability to play fullback, line up at fullback and then also transition to the halfback position and carry the football, and he’s done that extremely well. I had a front-row seat to observe what Mike’s skill set is, both on and off the field, and that was key for us. You’re talking about a guy that’s been to a Pro Bowl, and that’s really no different to [Patrick] DiMarco, in this case.”

As free agency opened the Bills made a handful of acquisitions, but they also saw some players from their roster sign elsewhere. OnForward Bakary Sako will leave Crystal Palace when his contract expires at the end of June, after four years at Selhurst Park.The 31 year old spent the first half of the 2018-19 season at Championship West Bromwich Albion before returning to Palace in January.”After four seasons the time has come to look for a new challenge,” Sako said. offense Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin signed with wt-Lewin admits he’s working closely with Moise Kean.This season Calvert-Lewin has scored 11 Premier League goals – the same amount as he managed in his previous three campaigns – while Kean has played second-fiddle for the majority of Carlo Ancelottiest coast clubs. While it further depleted Buffalo’s ranks at the receiver position, Tyrod Taylor and head coach Sean McDermott believe they will have viable answers for the position when all is said and done this offseason.

“This is a tough time of year, as far as that goes,” McDermott said. “This is a time of year where you’re going to lose some players, and those are good players. We wish them the best, in terms of their careers. We’re going to do everything in our power to continue to add pieces to this roster in guys that fit the DNA that we’re looking for, and add competition and depth at every position. That’s really what our mission is at this time.”

Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin, definitely very good players and definitely deserve the contracts that they got,” Taylor said. “As far as what else is out there for us to pick up and to bring in for free agency, I’m not sure right now, but I definitely have faith in our management and coach McDermott to bring in talent that’s definitely going to help this team.”

WR Kolby Listenbee signs rookie contract


The Bills made it two draft choice signings in two days as sixth-round pick Kolby Listenbee signed with the club on Thursday. Hwn by teammate Paul Pogba, it’s being claimed in Spain.Pogba is working his way back from a foot injury, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reluctant to put a date on his return.However, Radio Cope says there’s a belief inside the United dressing roome joins fellow sixth-round pick Kevon Seymour who signed Wednesday.

“It’s just a blessing,” Listenbee told moments after signing. “Growing up you’re watching the NFL and you just want to be a part of it. Now I’m a part of it, so I’m just looking forward to the opportunity.”

Listenbee (6-0, 197) was the 192nd overall pick and the first of two sixth-round selections for Buffalo. Blessed with world class speed, the TCU product ran a 4.39 40-time at the NFL combine in February despite having a sports hernia. It was the second fastest time posted by a receiver in Indianapolis this past winter. He also had a 35 ½-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot, nine-inch broad jump.

The deep threat receiver appeared in 40 games for the Horned Frogs, including 22 starts. He had 74 career receptions for more than 1,400 yards to average more than 19 yards per catch (19.4). Listenbee also had nine touchdowns and saw some time on kick return.

“Listenbee is a track guy, but he’s a football player, and he brings us the speed and we love speed,” said Bills GM Doug Whaley. “It’s something you can’t coach. But the best thing about him I think besides his speed is his ability to track the ball. He’s got incredible, natural ability to track those deep balls and even make catches when it’s contested, so we’re really excited about him.”

Listenbee underwent sports hernia surgery on March 10th, and is still currently rehabbing from the procedure.

“They said four-to-six weeks, but I also have an inflammation of the pelvis. That’ll mean more time.” Listenbee said. “I should be good around training camp time. I should be 100 percent around that time. So right now I’ll be taking mental reps and on the sideline I’ll be working through steps and how to do different breaks so I’m ready toertha Berlin have launched a bid for Watford attacker Dodi Lukebakio.After a successful loan last season with Fortuna Dusseldorf, Lukebakio is a target for several major clubs across Europe.BILD says Hertha have struck personal terms with the midfiel go when I do get out ts Liverpool will learn from Wednesday’s tight win over RB Salzburg.Salzburg came back from 3-0 to tie the scores with half an hour remaining before Mohamed Salah restored the Reds advantage.Speaking after the game, fullback Alexander-Arnold said: “Wehere.”

Exclusive: Liverpool make inquiry to sign Monaco’s Thomas Lemar for club record fee


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

However it is believed that Monaco are not willing to sell the 21-year-old French international during this window having already seen Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva depart and fighting to keep Kylian Mbappe who was on the bench for them, again, on Sunday night for the league match against Marseille with a growing expectation that a deal is  close to let him go to Paris Saint-Germain. 

Senior sources at both Monaco and PSG last night denied claims that a deal had been agreed for Mbappe and that tmond is set to be offered a bumper new deal by manager Ramer Barcelona and PSG fullback Alves’ signing presentation was held yesterday by Sao Paulo and he was asked about their deal for ex-Atletico Madrid fullback Juanfran.Alves said, “I placed myself at his disposal to help him, he is a person who is chanlph Hasenhuttl.Hasenhuttl said: “I can’t see the limits for him.“I want a Nathan Redmond who shows again he can make a difference in our game and that’s exactly what he wants to do.“We wihe 18-year-old was due to have a medical on Monday but it does appear that an agreement is inching closer if  the demands of Financial Fair Play can be met.

PSG need to sell a number of  players this month to satisfy FFP, already, after .  Monaco have fixed the fee for Mbappe at €180million (£166.4million) and, incredibly, it appears one possibility is for him to be loaned to PSG  for a season with an agreement that the money would then be paid next year. 

It still seems extraordinary that Monaco would agree to such a measure with one of their rivals but it has been discussed and they know Mbappe has set his heart on PSG. 

With Lemar, who was in the team who faced Marseille, Monaco believe they can command an even greater fee than has been offered for him so far next  summer as they regard him as a rising star of French football. 

Lemar is a versatile player who can play anywhere across the frontline although usually on the left. But Lemar also, potentially, can play as a wing-back which is where another Premier League club, Chelsea, considered using him had they made a bid this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur have also discussed Lemar who only signed for Monaco in 2015 for just £3.5million  from Caen where he started his career. 

Monaco told bidders earlier in this window that they will only allow one of  Bakayoko or Lemar, to leave now – and will try and resish AP, the Barça chief wanted to highlight the quality of the young Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong. “De Jong is going to establish an era of his own at Barcelona,” Bartomeu said of the former Ajax man, who is already a fans’ favourite at Camp Nou. t selling Lemar, who finished last season with 12 goals and 14 assists for Monaco as they won the French league and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.
