Press Association Former Tottenham boss Glenn Hoddle believes Gareth Bale’s need for balance off the pitch would rule out him leaving White Hart Lane for Real Madrid any time soon. Bale, 23, enjoyed another stand-out campaign for Spurs, despite not being able to drag them back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League, and as such was voted Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association to add to his double Player and Young Player of the Season award from the Professional Footballers’ Association. Speculation has, though, been rife the Wales midfielder will be sold in a big-money move this summer but Hoddle – who enjoyed a successful playing career at White Hart Lane from 1975 to 1987 before returning as manager for a two-year spell in 2003 – told talkSPORT he believes Bale’s strong family ties would, in the short term at least, rule the Welshman out of a transfer abroad. He said: “Personally I don’t think Gareth Bale wants to leave yet, unless it was to one of the Manchester clubs. If he goes abroad he’ll find it slightly difficult. “He needs to be settled off the pitch and you get the feeling that he’s had a new baby and I’m not sure if he’s ready for that [a move abroad]. “When you’re 27 or 28-years-old you might be ready and mature enough to settle. You have to be settled off the pitch before you get your form on it. It’s a really big decision for him.” Madrid president Florentino Perez is a keen admirer of Bale, claiming the Welshman was “born” to play for the Spanish club. Spurs, though, have long maintained their star man is not for sale, but that resolve could well be tested should Real Madrid come in with a substantial offer with figures up to £80million being touted. Hoddle accepts every player has his price, adding: “I would presume that if Tottenham get an offer like that then no-one would blame them for taking it. “I don’t think anyone could stay at any club for that amount of money. Tottenham have got a stadium to build as well and the money would come in handy for that, if that’s the sum of money they are talking about.”
Delph performed his second dramatic U-turn in six days to leave Aston Villa in an £8million move to City on Friday evening. The England international had pledged his future to Villa after turning down a move to City only to contact the Manchester club days later in a bid to revive the move. “Is there another player, a tool in the box that can do what he does? Mikel Arteta is injured and can Mathieu Flamini still do it? That would be a concern. “I think the centre-forward position is a concern, too. Olivier Giroud did not make the FA Cup final team and he is supposed to be the number one striker. Is he the number one now? Or is it Danny Welbeck or Theo Walcott? “Arsene Wenger has to judge whether this group is good enough to win the league. That is his call and only he can decide that. “I hope he is right. They are a year older. They have won two trophies and the second half of last season they were the best team in the Premier League – that maybe has done enough to convince him.” :: Martin Keown is launching the search for the best grassroots goal celebration.

For more info visit www.mcdonalds.co.uk/celebratebetter Press Association “People change their mind don’t they? It is what happens – he wouldn’t be the first person to turn down an opportunity, regretted it and then worked hard to change it and he has been brave enough to do that”, Keown, who spent three years at Villa before he was sold to Everton in 1989, told Press Association Sport. “When Delph elected to stay at Villa a lot of people were surprised. He looked as if his contract was running out, but he put pen-to-paper on a new deal, and, from a Villa point of view, thank God he did otherwise he would have left on a free transfer. “So, let us not be too hard on Delph. I suffered backlash from the Villa fans when I left there and he has agonised over that decision and it was a tough call – he already made the call once and had to change his mind. “It is a good signing for City – they want to buy British – he made his England debut last season and settled in well, he is a driving force from midfield, but it is a huge blow for Aston Villa.” Keown, speaking at the launch of McDonald’s football campaign #CelebrateBetter on Saturday, also believes Arsenal – another of his former clubs – may need to strengthen before the start of the season if they want to challenge for the Premier League title. Arsenal have not won the league since they went the entire 2003-04 season unbeaten. And while Keown praised the signing of goalkeeper Petr Cech from rivals Chelsea, he has urged manager Arsene Wenger to add to his squad before they begin their campaign against West Ham on August 9. “I am concerned a little bit that while Francis Coquelin has done well, what if he dips in form or gets injured?” Keown said. Fabian Delph should be praised for his “brave” decision to join Manchester City, Martin Keown has claimed.

Charlton led Middlesbrough to top-flight promotion in his first managerial job 46 years ago. MIDDLESBROUGH, ENGLAND – JULY 11: Nahki Wells of Bristol City celebrates scoring his second goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Middlesbrough and Bristol City at Riverside Stadium on July 11, 2020 in Middlesbrough, England. Football Stadiums around Europe remain empty due to the Coronavirus Pandemic as Government social distancing laws prohibit fans inside venues resulting in all fixtures being played behind closed doors.? (Photo by Jan Kruger/Getty Images) Wells has now scored five goals for City to add to the 15 he netted earlier in the season while on loan at Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers before being sold by Burnley, his former Premier League parent club, for £4 million (US$5 million) to City in the January transfer window. Wells put the icing on the cake, stabbing home from close range in the 79th minute after a Jamie Paterson rocket had given the visitors a 2-0 interval lead. Britt Assombalanga scored a late consolation goal for the hosts, who have not won at the Riverside in 2020 and remain in a scrap to avoid relegation following a third successive home defeat. The win – the second for City’s caretaker boss Dean Holden following the sacking last week of head coach Lee Johnson – left the Robins in 11th place but only three points out of the play-offs with three games remaining. “We scored three fantastic goals. All in all, I don’t know how many chances we created, but we created enough to warrant the victory.” Wells, 30, opened the scoring with a sixth-minute gem, curling the ball into the net from outside the box via a post, after being found by Andreas Weimann, who provided the assist for all three of his side’s goals. LONDON – Bermudian striker Nahki Wells took his season tally to 20 goals on Saturday after bagging a brace that lifted Bristol City to an emphatic 3-1 away victory over Middlebrough at the Riverside Stadium and kept alive their slim English Championship play-off hopes. Said Holden afterwards: “I enjoyed the performance, the boys have gone out in the last couple of games and the pressure has been lifted really.

Share Share Downes departs Dons following FA charge October 21, 2019 Wycombe footballer suspended after placing 183 bets January 24, 2020 Submit Related Articles StumbleUpon FA charges AFC Wimbledon manager over E8 betting breaches September 26, 2019 Detailing the conditions at which the Football Association (FA) is allowed to sell Wembley Stadium, the government has emphasised that gambling sponsors are prohibited from the national stadium. The news comes amid much speculation that the Football Association is contemplating a bid for the stadium from billionaire Fulham owner Shahid Khan, however his bid hinges on the stipulations that are currently being laid out by the government. As part of any potential deal, Khan, who not only owns Premier League side Fulham, but also owns NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars, would not be permitted to sell the naming rights of the stadium until 2057. Many believe that Khan’s ambition to acquire the national stadium is fuelled by a desire to see his NFL side play more games at the famous stadium, however it’s already been outlined that should the deal go ahead, Khan is required to respect the sentiment that Wembley maintains its status as the national stadium. It’s anticipated that the decision on whether the bid, which is thought to be around £600m will be announced before the end of the calendar year and will be made FA’s 10-member executive board.Last year, Ladbrokes emphasised its stance towards relations with gambling operators, when it abruptly ended its £4 million per year partnership with Ladbrokes. At the time, FA Chief Executive Martin Glenn stated: “We would like to thank Ladbrokes for both being a valued partner over the last year and for their professionalism and understanding about our change of policy around gambling.”When the new Wembley first opened in 2006, the FA and the stadium was happy enough with gambling to sign a lucrative four year deal with Betfred, which had been undergoing a transformation from a regional brand into a national one, with Betfred taking the title of ‘Wembley Stadium’s Official Bookmaker’.
Odell Beckham Jr. hasn’t even played a game for the Browns yet, but teammate Baker Mayfield already has his back.The Browns quarterback tweeted a challenge at Fox Sports Radio’s Colin Cowherd Friday, after “The Herd” host said Beckham did not want to play in Cleveland. After Fox Sports tweeted Cowherd’s remarks, Mayfield replied, “Come to Cleveland and ask O if he actually likes it. Just because you say you have a source doesn’t mean you’re not full of BS. And while you’re at it … come see if I’m a baby.””Nobody will be honest about this Cleveland thing. It has a chance to be a complete and utter dumpster fire… Odell didn’t want to go here, the owner is a control freak, John Dorsey is a control freak, Freddie Kitchens could be over his head…” — @ColinCowherd pic.twitter.com/Igr7uuhrYn— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) April 5, 2019It’s not the first time Mayfield and Cowherd have sparred in public. Before the 2018 NFL Draft, Cowherd questioned Mayfield’s draft prospects because of some of his actions in college.Cowherd seemed sure of his claim that OBJ is unhappy in Cleveland. The Browns acquired the three-time Pro Bowl wideout from the Giants in a March 13 deal involving several other players and draft picks.“I am saying I have it incredibly well-sourced that he was pissed when he got traded to Cleveland,’’ Cowherd said. “He doesn’t feel like he’s all in. … you think he’s going to be there in four years? I’ll make a bet.’’ Browns sign QB Garrett Gilbert, AAF’s leading passer “Odell Beckham’s not happy here,” Cowherd said. “He’s not happy. Look at him. Does he look happy?’’Cowherd also said Mayfield is “just a baby.” Related News The Browns were one of the surprise teams in the NFL last season, finishing 7-8-1 after going 1-31 the previous two seasons. And with a growing young core led by Mayfield, and the addition of OBJ, expectations will be much higher this season. But Cowherd said the situation in Cleveland is a looming “disaster.”“But nobody will just be honest about this Cleveland thing,” Cowherd said. “It has a chance to be a complete and utter dumpster fire. … I’m not even mentioning Baker who’s a kid. He’s just a baby.“Baker’s not my issue here. It’s a crazy owner, power-drunk GM, a coach that I think’s over his head, a superstar receiver who’s going to want a lot of attention and doesn’t want to be there. This thing has disaster potentially written all over it.’’
