Neil Ruddock: ‘Souness wouldn’t drop players, he would tackle you instead’

Guardian - søn, 15/11/2020 - 11:56

Former defender discusses tricking Liverpool’s physio, winding up Eric Cantona and getting bullets in the post

Neil Ruddock gets his swearing from his mother. It’s 10am on a Tuesday and in the den at the back of his house ‘Razor’ doesn’t hold back with the Fs and Cs. But the swearing comes naturally, and as Billy Connolly once suggested, there can be a poetry to it, which is certainly true in Ruddock’s cockney drawl. It is sometimes crass, or superfluous, but it’s also who Ruddock is. He’s the son of a swearer, so naturally he became one.

New ground: 10 of the best stadium moves in the new-build era

Guardian - tor, 12/11/2020 - 16:03

In the first of a two-part series, we look at the league clubs who have arguably benefited most from relocating. Read part two here.

By Niall McVeigh for The Set Pieces

When it opened in August 1988, Scunthorpe’s Glanford Park was the first brand new league ground for 33 years. Since then, a new-build revolution kickstarted by the Taylor Report has seen more than a third of the current 92 league clubs move home. Any team leaving an ancestral home for a new, purpose-built arena is gambling their history and identity on making it work.

For the success stories, there is much to love about their new surroundings – some offer safety and stability, while others have led to charges up the league and that new trophy room getting plenty of use. In part two, we will take a look at relocations that did not go to plan – but first, here are 10 stadium moves that paid off.

In this new and fearful landscape anything seems possible, even the notion that Tottenham are genuine title contenders

As a coach who prides himself on being at the cutting edge of new trends and ideas within the game, José Mourinho joined Instagram in February 2020. We soon learned that this would not be an account dedicated to the classic Instagram tropes of good vibes, fabulous sunsets, body-positivity and paleo-breakfasts. Instead, in among the adverts for watches and credit cards, Mourinho’s main source of content appears to be his own face, captured in various states of cheerlessness. On the team bus, looking grumpy after a defeat. On a sofa, glumly eating crisps out of a plastic tub. Forcing his staff, including a stony-faced Ledley King, to watch Formula One on a Sunday afternoon.

Even the more sincere posts carry an unnerving import. Last month, for example, Mourinho wrote on behalf of the World Food Programme, pointing out that “842 million people in the world do not eat enough to be healthy”. Curiously, though, the post was accompanied by photographs of Mourinho himself eating, as if demonstrating how it should be done. Three Premier Leagues, two Champions Leagues, one bowl of food: respect, man, respect.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend's action

Guardian - man, 09/11/2020 - 09:00

Man City and Arsenal need fresh blood in midfield, Ademola Lookman faces a test and Hakim Ziyech is fulfilling his promise

As Liverpool’s front four overran Manchester City’s defence in the opening stages, Pep Guardiola was forced to accept the lack of mobility in key central midfield positions was putting his side at risk. Rodri and Ilkay Gündogan are devoid of pace, something which makes City more vulnerable to the counterattack than most. Additionally, they lack the impetus to instigate attacks from deep positions, leaving transitions to be slower than is required for a team who want to challenge for all major trophies. Guardiola dropped Gündogan alongside Rodri but this failed to quell the wave of Liverpool attacks being thrown at a City defence that is still building an understanding. Guardiola’s centre back pairing might finally be sorted but his next big acquisition needs to be in front of them if he is to ensure City are capable of beating Liverpool in the future. Will Unwin

'You can do a good season, can have lots of points and in the end. Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Man United, Leicester, Arsenal. So you can have a good season and not be champion.'
