Arsenal midfielder Iwobi: We can’t dwell on Southampton defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi says they cannot dwell on defeat to Southampton.Iwobi admits they let themselves down for the 3-2 loss.He said, “I guess we weren’t concentrating throughout the 90 minutes. We had spells where we weren’t defending well as a group. It’s something we have to dust ourselves down from and keep on going. We can’t let our heads drop from this defeat, we just have to push on to the next match.”Of course, they deserve some credit. They had a gameplan and they stuck to it and did well against us. But it’s disappointing from us and we have to keep going again.”We had a lot of chances to win this game, I believe. But we have to give ourselves a bit of credit that we were able to go on this unbeaten run and now we have to start over again.”We have to react well, we have to keep on going. It’s a bit unfortunate that there were a couple of injuries but we have to keep on going and keep on fighting throughout the season.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

KNOXVILLE, TN – OCTOBER 01: Fans pack the stands to support their teams as the Mississippi Rebels face the Tennessee Volunteers on October 1, 2005 at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee. (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)A snow game took place in Neyland Stadium late Wednesday evening. It involved some snowballs and a group of mischievous Tennessee students. With their campus covered in a blanket of white powder, a few dozen Volunteers snuck into their school’s football stadium and had a giant snowball fight. This is the second year in a row that this has happened. After last year’s incident, many of the students were given citations for trespassing. when it’s 12:30 in the morning and you’re bored so you go to Ayers and Neyland Stadium pic.twitter.com/apdfhmRTw8— Briyana Dyer (@BriyanaDyer) February 26, 2015Snowball fight in Neyland?

Vine/@StephLaurenThe half-court shot on the basketball version of ESPN’s College GameDay is often the highlight of the program, and that is definitely a fact for one lucky North Carolina student today. UNC junior Forrest Reynolds, who also serves as a student manager with the basketball program, took two very strong attempts before absolutely drilling his third shot, netting him $18,000.Kid just made the half court shot on College Gameday at UNC https://t.co/MqGH2psO6i— Stephanie Haberman (@StephLauren) March 7, 2015A win over hated rival Duke today would definitely be the icing on the cake for Reynolds, although he’d probably admit that he’s made out pretty well no matter what happens tonight.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is a ‘great talent’ and would be an astute signing for Bayern Munich, according to club legend Lothar Matthaus.The 18-year-old Chelsea winger has only made 12 career appearances but Goal understands Bayern have now bid £35 million ($45m) for his services.Matthaus has been impressed by what he has seen of Hudson-Odoi so far and believes he would be a fantastic signing for the German champions, capable of making a similar impact to Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar 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? “I saw him at the FA Cup game against Nottingham Forest, where he assisted both goals and was on both wings,” Matthaus told Sky.“Even in English junior teams, I have already watched him.“He’s a great talent, reminiscent of Sancho at Dortmund. Fast, a strong dribbler, good vision and good finishing.“I can imagine that he would be a great reinforcement for the champions.”Although Bayern have bid for Hudson-Odoi, they may find it hard to land their man as Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is reluctant to let him go saying he is an important player in his squad.”To stay here is better for him,” said Sarri. “He is very young but he is improving, especially in the defensive phase.”I don’t know the situation with the club but for me he is an important player.”Meanwhile, Matthaus feels RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has a tricky decision to make regarding his future amid interest from Bayern and Borussia Dortmund in the Germany international.“Allegedly, Dortmund are now interested as well. It could therefore, apart from other top European clubs, come down to a fight between Bayern and Dortmund for the best German striker,” added Matthaus.“In the end, the question will be where he sees the best overall package and the most tempting one when he leaves Leipzig.““Financially, of course, a Bayern deal should be higher than that of Borussia Dortmund. But Watzke and Co. have managed well, have boosted the coffers and have a lot to offer.“Should Timo have to decide between the two big German clubs, he will have to consider whether he can accept the big competition with Lewandowski and other world stars and what the club bosses and the respective coaches would make of him.”
