Aldridge convinced current Liverpool team best seen in 30 yearsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveJohn Aldridge says the current Liverpool team is the best seen in 30 years.Aldridge wrote for the Liverpool Echo: “This is the best Liverpool team since the title-winning side I played in back in 1987/88.”Over the past 30 years we’ve had some great teams but none of them have played consistently at the level we’re seeing from Jurgen Klopp ‘s side this season.”We famously went 29 games unbeaten from the start of the season en route to winning the title in 1988. I would absolutely love to see the current crop beat that record.”Can they do it? I don’t see any reason why not. They are 20 games unbeaten already and confidence is sky high after that 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.”Going into 2019 seven points ahead of City is a great position to be in. Klopp and the players are saying all the right things about keeping their focus and not getting carried away.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

The next day I was jogging on it a little and from then I knew there was a chance of me being involved [against Liverpool yesterday].”There is still swelling there now but it is solid and I felt good and I trained the day before. I was pretty positive the day before the game that I would be involved.”He added: “You have to block the injury out of your mind and focus on the game.”When I had that chance which I felt I should have scored I rolled my ankle a little bit and it felt fine. It was fine throughout the whole game. It was solid.”Your Champions League debut, you don’t want it to end so soon, but that is football, it happened, and I try to stay positive. “I looked forward to the Liverpool game and set a goal that hopefully I could get ready for that. I feel like I am a quick recoverer and we worked on it hard and I was able to get back.”

Bengaluru: Former cricketer Rahul Dravid, who was part of the Election Commission’s campaign to boost voting, will miss out on voting in the current Lok Sabha polls as he did take steps to get his name included in the voters’ list after a change of residence here.Dravid and his family had moved from their ancestral house in Indiranagar to Ashwathnagar and subsequently names of him and his wife were removed from the Electral Rolls. This was based on Form 7 for deletions submitted by his brother, Karnataka Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar said here Monday. “…but after shifting to new residence Rahul Dravid did not take steps to get his name included in the electoral roll although registration officials visited there several times,” Kumar said. The electoral authorities came to know about Dravid’s name not being in the list after finalisation of the electoral rolls.
Mumbai: Batting great Sachin Tendulkar reckons that the wickets in England and Wales, set to host the 2019 Cricket World Cup starting May 30, will assist batsmen and bowlers might struggle to swing the ball. Sachin said the summer conditions, which will prevail during the showpiece event, will not help bowlers much and the pitches will behave in a similar way as during the 2017 Champions Trophy in England. “I am told it’s going to be a hot summer. Even during the Champions Trophy the wickets were superb when the sun was out. In the heat, the wickets get really flat. I am sure they will give beautiful tracks to bat on,” the 46-year-old said on the sidelines of the inauguration of the MIG Club pavilion named after him.

If there is a cloud cover, the ball might go around a bit. Even if that’s the case, I don’t see that happening for a longer duration, may be just in the initial overs,” he said. Sachin also felt as several Indian players, including captain Virat Kohli, M.S. Dhoni, Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan, are performing well in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), it will help in boosting their confidence for the World Cup. “A good performance in any format is good news because it gives the player confidence. If you are confident, that’s important,” he said. “The players have time to make some adjustments according to the conditions. All of them have played enough cricket to know what to do to improve,” Sachin remarked.
Like the men’s team, Ohio State’s women’s basketball team made a trip to the “Tobacco Road” portion of the state of North Carolina. They will bring a loss home. The No. 15-ranked Buckeyes were unable to win on the road in their visit to No. 22 North Carolina, falling short to the Tar Heels, 57-54. With the loss OSU falls to 4-2 on the season. Both of their losses have come against ranked opponents. OSU senior guard Tayler Hill scored a game-high 24 points on 9-21 shooting led OSU, but the Buckeyes’ likely could have used another scoring option as no other player reached double figures. Conversely, three different Tar Heels scored 11 points in the game. It was a close contest, but the Buckeyes had to claw their way back from a large deficit to make it a game. Midway through the second half, OSU trailed by 16 points at 44-28. With Hill leading the way the Buckeyes were able to cut the margin, and even took a two-point lead with 1:26 left to play. But the Tar Heels answered in a big way, forcing two turnovers down the stretch and scoring the game’s final five points to clinch the upset win. OSU returns home this weekend for a noon tipoff against Evansville.
