We had more energy in our game, character and spirit.”That’s why the crowd applauded at the end. Let’s take this forward.”The Blues did have a goal disallowed by VAR due to an offside, which Lampard was happy to accept after the game.”I like to think we might get a couple in our favour, but you can see Mason is a tiny bit offside,” he added.”We have to get on with it. It is a sad thing for the celebration and the moment but if we are looking for correct decisions that is where we are at. It changes the atmosphere in the crowd, on the pitch. We are slightly deflated and they get a boost. We deserved to be level at that point.”
Agent: Napoli need to let Elseid Hysaj leaveby Carlos Volcano9 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveThe agent of Napoli fullback Elseid Hysaj has invited interest from Roma.Hysaj is ready to leave Napoli in January.”There had been discussions in the summer with Roma, then we stopped when the season began, but we still like them as a destination,” agent Mario Giuffredi told Radio Marte.“I think it is Napoli’s interests to negotiate a transfer in January, seeing as they risk losing him as a free agent in June 2021. They’d only have the summer left otherwise, and seeing as Napoli have been fundamental in Hysaj’s career, we want to avoid leaving for free.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
Michigan State Eron Harris Eron Harris hasn’t yet suited up in a game for Michigan State’s basketball program, but we feel it’s safe to say the Spartans’ fan base is going to like him very much. The former West Virginia guard transferred into MSU’s program this offseason and will be eligible for the 2016-17 season after sitting out the upcoming season due to NCAA rules. Once he’s eligible, watch out. He’s not only a great scorer (averaged 17 points a game at WVU last season) but also a freak athlete, as he proved at MSU’s Breslin Center earlier today. Check out this video of Harris throwing down some ridiculous dunks, courtesy of MSU guard Denzel Valentine. Whoa. Michigan State’s fan base is definitely going to like him.
