Even I’m not fretting. And that’s a good sign. Believe me. #nffc— Hannah Forest 🔴⚪️⚽️ (@hannahforest) July 22, 2020Ahead of the final round of fixtures, Sabri Lamouchi’s side needed at least a draw against the Potters to guarantee a top-six finish.Yet Forest extended their winless run to six games with a humiliating 4-1 humbling at home to Michael O’Neill’s men.The club’s misery was compounded by Swansea’s win by the same scoreline against 10-man Reading which saw the Welsh club usurp them on goal difference.And for one fan, the embarrassment was all too much after her pre-match prediction came back to haunt her.Before kick-off, Forest fan Hannah tweeted: “Are people really worried that we will blow a six-goal difference in one match?“Even I’m not fretting. And that’s a good sign. Believe me.”She later added: “I give you permission to laugh at us if it does happen…” Unfortunately for Hannah, it did happen as Swansea actually needed a five-goal swing for a play-off place only for six to ultimately fly in as per her prediction.Forest were overtaken by Swansea City during the final round of fixturesCredit: Getty Images – GettyOne fan replied: “Hannah , I would file this under “Tweets that precede unfortunate events”, enjoy the championship again!”Another said: “The perils of twitter. I congratulate you for not deleting this tweet.”A third added: “I’m pretty sure most derby fans are gonna have this framed on their wall Hannah.”Forest’s dramatic capitulation followed a wretched end to their season, which saw the Reds collect just three points from a possible 18 since the start of July.Speculation has already started over Lamouchi’s future in the dugout after he attempted to shed some light on his side’s collapse.He told BBC Radio Nottingham: “It’s difficult to react. I’m here just because it’s obligatory to be here. I don’t have words. Disaster.“It is a disaster to lose everything in the last game at home, of course.“But to believe all the season about the play-offs and to lose and put away the play-offs like that, it’s just our fault. I don’t have more words. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry to the fans, sorry for the last few games.“One point was enough tonight, it was enough a few days ago and was enough last week and we were so close, but it was a disaster.”Liverpool lift the Premier League title after 30 year wait Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 Source: Soccer – read more

Wizards booed off court after 1-7 start

first_imgFans booed the Wizards off the court following a 134-111 loss to the Thunder on Friday — but the players aren’t panicking, despite a 1-7 start. “I’m not hitting the panic button … and I don’t think we are either as a team,” guard Bradley Beal said (per ESPN). “We understand it’s still early, it’s not perfect. We understand patience is running low from everybody, from ourselves. Nobody is more disappointed than us. I’m definitely going to say that. Thunder forward Paul George reveals he’s dealing with ‘dead foot’ injury Dwight Howard was a highlight of the night as he made his Wizards debut, scoring 20 points on 7-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes. Beal led the team with 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting, but Washington struggled defensively.  “Offense has never been a problem for us,” guard John Wall said. “We score the ball very well. It’s just what can we do on the defensive end. Until we figure that out, we’re going to have these same problems.”Wall added: “It just looks like nobody is on the same page.” The Wizards will host the Knicks (3-6) on Sunday with tip-off set for 6 p.m. ET. “I’ll never give up on this team. What are we going to do about it? Just fold up early in the year and give up on the year or fight back and try to compete like we know we’re capable of doing? And I refuse to let the ship sink, so as one of the captains on the team I put a lot of responsibility on my shoulders. I’ve got to be better leadership-wise on the floor, giving more, leading by example, and hopefully guys will follow.”The boos started in the second quarter and got louder as the Wizards walked off the court down 29 at halftime. The Wizards showed some fight in the third quarter, but Oklahoma City ultimately outplayed Washington for the victory.  Related Newslast_img read more

Elliott has also entered last year’s runner-up, Bless The Wings who has been given 9st 11lbs while Noble Endeavor, a 10/1 co-favourite is further up the handicap on 11st.The BoyleSports Irish Grand National will go a long way towards deciding who is crowned this season’s champion National Hunt trainer. Elliott has yet to win the race and the same can be said of the current champion trainer, Willie Mullins who has made 14 entries, headed by Alelchi Inois on 11st 5lbs. His leading novice chaser Bellshill has been given 10st 9lbs while early 10/1 co-favourite The Crafty Butcher is on 9st 9lbs.
