Danny Welbeck asked to leave Manchester United

The Guardian is claiming that Louis Van Gaal has asked striker Danny Welbeck to leave Manchester United. This is surprising, considering 1.) how it’s thought that he was considered higher up the pecking order than Javier Hernandez and 2.) how he needs depth to run his 3-5-2 system. Sorry, Mr. Welbeck, I guess it’s good night at the Theatre of Dreams. By the way, remember...

Why the term “Man U” is offensive, say Man United instead

Not everyone knows this, and I myself didn’t even know it until recently, much as I hate to admit it, but “Man U.” or “Man U” is not something you should say. It’s disrespectful. When you need to abbreviate Manchester United, you could say Man United, MUFC, the Red Devils etc. I know this fact is a bit obscure. Here’s the story: Via Bleacher Report: The origin of the...

Liverpool FC imposing behavior clause on Mario Balotelli

Is Liverpool FC letting one bad boy, right after they just let another bad boy go? Not quite. Luis Suarez, for all of his faults off the pitch, and he has many, was a hard worker on the field, and he produced. He was arguably the best player in the Premier League last season. Mario Balotelli, likewise comes with a lot of baggage, and he might arguably be more maladjusted, and have...

Cubs Edwin Jackson could thrive in bullpen

Genius physicist Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  The Cubs intransigence in keeping RHP Edwin Jackson in the starting rotation is bordering on insanity. Since he signed a four-year, $52 million contract prior to last season, Jackson, 30, has arguably been the worst starting pitcher in major league...

New Northwestern football landscape evaluated by ESPN pundits

So where does Northwestern football go now? For the receivers, your big playmakers need to be Mike McHugh and Cameron Dickerson. I know, right? Totally underwhelming. Actually, it will be Tony Jones and Kyle Prater. And as you know it’s been all hype and little production from Prater. Replacing Mark will Justin Jackson (Pat Fitzgerald hates burning a kid’s shirt, but he has to...

NY Jets Stephen Hill: another Mike Tannenbaum bust?

Mike Tannenbaum had a few successful trades, but he also had a few horrid ones. For as bad as the Mark Sanchez draft day trade looks now, the Jets still got two AFC Championship runs in return. One Tannenbaum trade that looks to be the most haunting includes Georgia Tech wide receiver, Stephen Hill. In the 2012 draft, the Jets moved up five spots, giving up a fifth and seventh round...

The Chicago Bears defense can’t get any worse. I mean think of how terrible they looked at times last year.
