Juan Foyth rubbishes the speculations that his discussions with the Spurs over a possible deal are reaching the point of conclusion and his representative is set to fly to UK soon to get the deal done.


Foyth who is only a teenager confesses that he dreams of an opportunity to feature in the European Leagues, but, at this point of time, he doesn’t have any offer like that on the table.

As per Foyth, he has read on Twitter and other social networking sites that his representative is going to meet with the Spurs officials, but, he has no idea about it because his representative has not talked to him in that regard at all. If it had been the case, his representative would have surely let him know.

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 32 games on Thursday.


The visitors have a chance to overturn the result when they meet for the return leg at Wembley.

Spurs put up a listless show at the Ghelamco Arena, with 20,000 fans cheering on. Coach Mauricio Pochettino asked his boys to forget their 2-0 thumping by Liverpool in their last Premier League match. The manager selected a strong side for the game, making just two chances to the team that started the Anfield game.

In the first half, Harry Winks and Ben Davies combined to set up Dele Alli but the forward sent his effort wide. After the break, Pochettino decided to move former Newcastle United player Moussa Sissoko to the left, making attacks more potent. Harry Kane gained from this but his chance hit the post. Spurs ended up frustrated and Alli picked up a yellow card for dissent.    

Arsene Wenger has stated that his side is ready for the London derby on Sunday where his side will be facing Tottenham Hotspurs.


He said that the players are ready and that they understand the importance of this game for fans.
Arsene Wenger said that the team would be without Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott and Nacho Monreal who are all injured. He said that Walcott has a slim chance of featuring in the team, but he will have to face a late fitness test.

Arsenal will be boosted by the return of Olivier Giroud who has scored 3 goals from 2 matches since his return from injury. The French manager said that he would make a decision on whether Alexis Sanchez or Olivier Giroud will play in the striker role. He believes that each of the two players has their own qualities and it is up to him to decide who will suit the play better on Sunday.

If there is any trend coming on it is that of football fans becoming used by homosexual players in the game.


It is becoming an accepted fact that homosexuality can exist among footballers. Select committees are being told by experts that inquiry into homophobia need not matter now. If a footballer turns out to be gay he will not be penalized in the way they used to before.

Committees are now hearing that fans would be supportive, even if footballers announced that they were gay. There was a recent inquiry about the effects of culture and media on sport selection. There have been debates initiated by boxers like Manny Pacquiao and Tyson Fury. They were told that the footballers can be more open about their sexuality as fans have become more supportive. The findings were part of a larger research into homophobia in different sports and games.

According to latest reports, a pro-stadium group wants to spend $63 million on the construction of a high school football stadium.


Voters in McKinney, Tex., have given the go-ahead with the plans after months of contentious debate in the suburb north of Dallas.

Even though Mike Giles, a leader of Grassroots McKinney opposed the plan and added that:

“We‘re kind of like the poor boys on the block

“They look down and they see Allen. Allen has a really nice stadium.”

Jennifer Gray, the chairwoman of Vote for McKinney’s Future, a pro-stadium group insisted saying:

“Down South, football is a really big deal, and playoff football is a really big deal.”

The proposed 12,000-seat facility and an attached events center would be just the latest in a growing list of supersized high school stadiums in Texas. The McKinney project has frequently been compared to the $60 million high school stadium in nearby Allen. With seats for 18,000 people, the Allen stadium has nearly the same capacity as Madison Square Garden. Another school stadium under construction in Katy, outside Houston, will have 12,000 seats at a projected cost of more than $62 million.

Newly signed Manager of EPL giants, Chelsea have been in the news now regarding the Premier League title hopes. While many believe he has all he needs to lift the prestigious title, others say he would not have it easy.

Former Juventus youth team manager who also played in the 1996 Juventus squad alongside Anthonio Conte, says the highly successful coach would repeat another success with Chelsea in England.

Anthonio is set to quit his current job as the manager of Italy to take over at Chelsea this summer. Stamford Bridge have confirmed the talented Coach will make the move by season end on a three year deal.

Fabrizio Ravanelli played in Juventus for four years between 1992 and 1996. The former Middlesbrough striker told reporters regarding EPL title hopes: “I think, under Antonio Conte, it’s a guarantee. He is one of the most meticulous managers in the world – but also a fighter. Chelsea have made a great decision. To be honest, when we were together I didn’t think he would become a manager.”
