I think they’ve got to get it right in other areas of the pitch. ‘Keep bringing in these [players], [Gabriel] Martinelli, [Bukayo] Saka, [Joe] Willock, all these boys.‘I love seeing that but they’ve got to get stability and strength in there, some people who will do good for the club, because it hasn’t worked with the likes of Sokratis and Mustafi, I don’t think they haven’t been able to get it right, and Chambers before that.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityWith Aubameyang likely heading for the exit, Arsenal have been linked with Real Madrid outcast Luka Jovic.However, Ferdinand has advised Arteta not to move for the Serbian.‘He’s someone who’s done nothing in a Real Madrid shirt but the potential he showed when he was at Eintracht Frankfurt made him someone who was very highly thought of,’ said Ferdinand.‘But it doesn’t always go to plan when you go to a new team, so I wouldn’t hold it against him. ‘I think he’s someone who can add something to Arsenal. ‘But I don’t believe Arsenal need a player in that position.MORE: Rio Ferdinand reveals one issue with Jadon Sancho’s £120m move to Manchester United Advertisement Comment Advertisement Rio Ferdinand tells Mikel Arteta to build Arsenal team around three playerslast_img read more

Champs Sports!

Champs Sports!

first_imgIt was a cold night in Orlando, Fla. — a place where 50 degrees on a Dec. 29 night is chilly.While the Miami Hurricanes’ players could be seen foolishly shivering and huddling around heaters on the sidelines, Wisconsin wasn’t bothered one bit.Miami’s incredible speed looked to be slowed by the cold, but the Badgers just ran all over the Hurricanes in the Champs Sports Bowl. John Clay, who was named game MVP by the media, rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries.Though Clay scored both UW touchdowns, the Wisconsin passing attack was incredibly effective as well. Quarterback Scott Tolzien threw for 260 yards on 19-of-26 passing with one interception. His primary targets were tight ends Lance Kendricks and Garrett Graham, who combined for 205 receiving yards on 13 catches.Most impressive, though, was how silly the Badgers made Miami quarterback Jacory Harris look. Harris was just 16-for-29 for 188 yards with a touchdown and five sacks — three of which were courtesy of defensive ends O’Brien Schofield and J.J. Watt.All told, the Badgers dominated the Hurricanes at the Champs Sports Bowl, despite winning by just six points. It was a great moment because it was a validation of the Wisconsin football program.“This makes a big statement,” Watt said. “It was prime time television; a lot of people were watching and we’re really excited about the statement we sent today. Wisconsin football is back to where it belongs — Wisconsin football is power football, tough football and it’s going to be a tough team to beat.”last_img read more
