This case has never really taken off, because to free Sarri, President (Aurelio) De Laurentiis imposed a clause that prohibited Chelsea to recruit other Neapolitan players after Jorginho.” last_img read more

Video: Taking Kansas To Play Duke At Cameron Indoor Stadium Is On Bill Self’s ‘Bucket List’

first_imgBill Self gives an interview at Allen Fieldhouse.YouTube/Lauren DavidsonBill Self has accomplished a lot during his coaching career, but he’s never had the chance to bring his team to Cameron Indoor Stadium. During an interview with Kansas broadcast student Lauren Davidson, taking the Jayhawks to play the Blue Devils at the fabled arena is a part of his bucket list, and the one thing he really wants to do as a coach.Of course, a trip to Kansas would necessitate a return game at Allen Fieldhouse, as Self, who would like to compare the two arena environments, goes on to say. The two programs have played a number of times in the NCAA Tournament and neutral site tournaments, but have not had a true home-and-home series since 1988-89, both games won by Duke. The two teams last met in 2013 at the United Center in Chicago, a 94-83 Kansas win. The Blue Devils lead the all-time series between the two storied program 7-3.last_img read more

Alderweireld happy at Spurs amid £25m Man Utd links

first_imgToby Alderweireld says he’s “very happy” to have extended his stay at Tottenham despite reports that Manchester United are ready to activate a £25 million ($32m) release clause in his contract in the summer.The Belgium defender saw Spurs trigger their option to extend his stay in London until 2020 earlier in January, but in doing so could see the 29-year-old snapped up in the summer for a relatively low price if another club matches the buyout.United have been linked with an interest in the centre-back’s services for some time, but Alderweireld – who starred in Spurs’ Carabao Cup win over Chelsea – claims that his good performances prove that he is still 100 per cent committed.

I’m only focused on thing on the pitch.”This is my fourth season and I’m very happy. I’m doing everything to help the team.”Harry Kane netted the only goal of the match as Spurs emerged 1-0 winners against Chelsea at Wembley, but only after being awarded a penalty via a controversial VAR call.Indeed, the decision reached by way of technology even irked victorious boss Mauricio Pochettino, but right-back Kieran Trippier feels that the call was correct – even if it did take longer than he would have liked.”It’s important,” said the England full-back. “If VAR wasn’t there Harry would have been given offside.”But if you look at the Rochdale game [in last season’s FA Cup], it took five minutes per decision. It’s a work in progress and hopefully it will speed up.”We had the momentum in the game and it took maybe a minute and a half [for a decision]. Sometimes it can take the momentum out of the game. That’s the only criticism I have.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Cabrera sacked as Houston Dynamo coach

first_imgThe third full-time coach in the history of the Houston Dynamo has been sacked.  The Texas outfit announced that it had parted ways with Wilmer Cabrera on Tuesday amid a run of results that has seen the club win just twice in its last 14 league matches.  Houston opened the season on track for a historic season, winning seven and drawing two of its first 11 games before the wheels fell off.   Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Cabrera’s total record saw him take 32 wins against 39 losses with 22 draws in MLS regular season, having taken over ahead of the 2017 campaign. He guided the team to the U.S. Open Cup title last season in what was his greatest accomplishment at the helm. “We’d like to thank Wilmer for all of his hard work and dedication over the course of the last two and a half seasons with the Houston Dynamo, including last year’s U.S. Open Cup title. We wish him all the best moving forward,” said Dynamo senior vice president and general manager Matt Jordan in a club release.  “At this time, we as a club believe the team will benefit from a fresh perspective as we enter the final third of our season and make a push to qualify for the playoffs.” Davy Arnaud, one of Cabrera’s assistants with the Dynamo, will take over the lead role on an interim basis as the club looks to chase down a playoff spot in the closing run of the season.  Arnaud takes over a unit still very much in the running in the Western Conference, which will see seven teams earn a place in the playoffs.  The Dynamo currently sit ninth in the league table, but are just six points back of Texas rivals FC Dallas, who sit seventh in the league table.  To do so, he’ll have to turn things around quickly. Houston has lost four in a row in league play since topping Toronto FC last month.  The Dynamo do have a favorable schedule in the closing run of the season. Three of the club’s final nine matches come against teams below them in the table, while four others come against teams that could still be caught in the Western Conference standings.last_img read more

Here’s Samsung Galaxy S10e in Canary Yellow, according to new leaked renders

first_img Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiFebruary 8, 2019UPDATED: February 8, 2019 16:09 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Galaxy S10e will come in a Canary Yellow colour optionThe S10e will sport a flat 5.8-inch Infinity-O displayThe S10e may launch in India at a price of around Rs 50,000The Galaxy S10e is being positioned as the iPhone XR (Review) competitor. There’s is no denying that Samsung is going for a similar three-model strategy that Apple chose last year with the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max. The Galaxy S10e will come with some downgraded specs (much like the XR) such as a flat AMOLED display, smaller battery, dual cameras and a physical fingerprint sensor to name a few. It is also apparently coming in some unique colours such as a Canary Yellow colour, which seems to be yet another similarity with the iPhone XR. Speaking of which, here’s our first look at what the Galaxy 10e could look like in yellow.Tipster Ishan Agarwal in collaboration with MySmartPrice posted renders of the Galaxy S10e in a Canary Yellow colour. The Galaxy S10e’s yellow is brighter and louder compared to the yellow of the iPhone XR. The render might not give a clear indication of what the colour will look like in real life, but it does give us an idea of what to expect. The frame seems to have a yellow-ish as well to compliment the rear panel.EXCLUSIVE! First look at Samsung Galaxy S10e Canary Yellow colour and S10 Series dimensions!Galaxy S10e: 5.8 inch- 142.5×70.5×8.1mmGalaxy S10: 6.1 inch- 149.9×71.6×8.1mmGalaxy S10+: 6.4 inch- 157.0×75.3×8.1mmLike it?

The phone is also expected to come in black, white and green colours like the S10 and S10+. A blue colour option will reportedly come for all three models at a later stage. The render also gives us a look at the sides of the Galaxy S10e, revealing a flat-ish power button on the right side that will double up as a fingerprint sensor. The left side of the frame will see the volume buttons and the Bixby button just below it.The Galaxy S10e is said to come with a flat 5.8-inch Infinity-O AMOLED display. The phone is tipped to measure 142.5×70.5×8.1mm as per the new report, which means it will be equally thin as the Galaxy S10 and S10+. Unlike the triple camera systems on the S10 and S10+, the Galaxy S10e will only get dual cameras on the back. The S10e will also get a small 3,100mAh battery in comparison to the S10 and S10+ which will come with 3,400mAh and 4,100mAh capacities, respectively.While some of the specs of the S10e are noticeable downgrades over the regular and Plus-sized S10s, the company will not be downgrading the chipset. The S10e will get the same Exynos 9820/ Snapdragon 855 chipset as the others. There will be only one variant of the S10e with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that will have a price of around Rs 50,000 in India, according to a report this week.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy S10 India launch tipped for March 6, price in India may start from Rs 50,000ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy S10 in pictures: New live images, renders seemingly confirm designGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

first_imgMWC 2019: V50 ThinQ, G8 ThinQ and everything else LG will launch on February 24While LG has decided not to launch a foldable display phone this year, it will unveil its first 5G phone, the LG V50 ThinQ at MWC 2019.advertisement Next Shweta Ganjoo New DelhiFebruary 19, 2019UPDATED: February 20, 2019 09:44 IST HIGHLIGHTSLG is planning to host a special event on February 24 in Barcelona.LG will launch LG V50 ThinQ and LG G8 ThinQ at MWC 2019.LG is expected to launch LG K12 Plus and LG K40 Plus at MWC 2019.Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 is right around the corner and ahead of mobile mega fest, the tech world is bracing itself for the event that would witness some of the biggest and most important smartphone launches of the year. Sure we won’t see Apple or Google gracing the event but it will nonetheless be a star-studded affair wherein companies like LG, Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, OnePlus, Nokia and Xiaomi will showcase some of their most advanced smartphones.LG, in particular, has some grand plans reserved for its the event which it will host at the Centre Convencions Internacional Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona on February 24. While the company has already confirmed that it won’t be introducing a foldable display phone this year despite having the technology to do so, that doesn’t mean that its MWC 2019 event is going to be all lacklustre. The Korean electronics giant is planning to launch a host of new devices, including two of its flagship devices, in Barcelona next week.Here’s everything that LG is planning to launch at its MWC 2019 event:5G Phone LG has already confirmed that it will be unveiling its first 5G enabled phone at its MWC 2019 event. The company’s 5G phone will be a part of its flagship V-series — the LG V50 ThinQ. LG has partnered with Sprint to launch its 5G phones, images of which we saw last week, in the US.LG has already confirmed that the LG V50 ThinQ will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and feature a gigantic 4,000mAh battery. Using Snapdragon 855 also means that the phone will have Qualcomm’s X50 modem in its core.advertisementWhile not much is known about LG’s upcoming 5G phone at the moment, reports suggest that it will run on Android 9 Pie and that it will come with a flip-cover type display that will effectively turn the phone into a dual-screen device.LG G8 ThinQAnother device that LG has confirmed will be taking a trip to Barcelona is LG’s G-series device – the LG G8 ThinQ. LG has already spilled the beans about this one and thanks to company we know a lot about the features the phone will come with. For starters, LG has already confirmed that G8 ThinQ will come with time-of-flight (ToF) sensors that will improve the accuracy of its 3D face recognition system and quality of its selfies.Additionally, the Korean company has also confirmed that the phone would come with the Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) technology that would turn the phone’s display into an audio amplifier. On audio front, the LG G8 ThinQ would also sport DTS:X 3D Surround Sound, Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Boombox Speaker and Master Quality Authenticated technologies.Apart from the details that LG has already shared, the phone has been a topic of rumours and speculations for long. Rumours suggest that just like the LG V50 ThinQ, G8 ThinQ too would come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and run on Android 9 Pie. It is likely to sport a triple rear camera setup. However, images of LG G8 ThinQ shared by Evan Blass last week suggest that the phone would come with a dual-rear camera setup instead. Additionally, it is likely to come with 6GB RAM with an internal memory that can be expaned up to 2TB using a microSD card. If reports are to be believed, the LG G8 ThinQ could come with a hefty price tag. The phone, as per a Reddit user, is likely to come with a price tag of $1199.99 CAD, which translates to Rs 64,300 approximately in India.However, the most interesting feature of the phone, just like the V50 ThinQ, could come with a flip-cover type display that would act a second screen to the phone.LG K12 PlusApart from launching its premium budget flagship devices, the company is expected to launch a budget smartphone. The company is expected to launch the LG K12 Plus at its MWC 2019 event. While LG so far has not confirmed anything about the phone, a report by the XDA Developers, which spotted the phone of the Google Play Console suggests that the phone will come with MediaTek MT6762 chipset and it will run on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.The listing also revealed that the phone would come with 3GB RAM and an HD display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1,440 pixels.LG K40 PlusApart from the above mentioned phones, LG is also expected to launch another budget smartphone- the LG K40 ThinQ. According to a report by the XDA Developers, the phone was spotted on the Google Android Enterprise Recommended list last week, which indicates that K40 Plus could one of the phones in LG’s MWC 2019 line-up.advertisementAgain, not much is known about the phone as of now, however, if the report by the publication suggests that the LG K40 Plus could come with a 5.7-inch display and run on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is likely to come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and feature NFC and a fingerprint scanner.Notably, while we know that LG is planning to launch two premium budget smartphones at its MWC 2019 event. However, at this point it remains uncertain if its MWC 2019 lineup includes two budget smartpphones as well.ALSO READ: | LG V50 ThinQ image leaked online ahead of the MWC 2019 launchALSO READ: | LG G8 ThinQ images leaked online ahead of MWC 2019 launchALSO READ: | LG K12 Plus to launch alongside LG G8 ThinQ at MWC 2019Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
