Man City name new captain after Silva departure

David Silva took the armband after the departure of long-serving skipper Vincent Kompany last season before the Spain playmaker opted to call time on his decade-long stay at the Etihad Stadium. It means the responsibility will now be passed to Fernandinho, another stalwart of City’s modern era, after the 35-year-old was voted captain by his team-mates and other members of staff. “He will be good [as a leader], as he always has been since I met him,” Guardiola said of the Brazil international who joined City from Shakhtar Donetsk for £30million in 2013 and is out of contract next June. “It doesn’t matter [whether or not Fernandinho has] the armband, he is always a guy who leads in the bad moments. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola “We decided in the locker room, the players, the backroom staff, we decided that Fernandinho is captain and I am more than delighted with that.” A versatile performer across midfield throughout his career, Fernandinho reverted to centre-back last season and looks well-placed to retain that role in City’s Premier League season opener at Wolves on Monday. Aymeric Laporte only returned to training on Friday after a positive coronavirus test and is short of match fitness. Guardiola did bolster his central defensive options with the £40m capture of Nathan Ake from Bournemouth but attempts to recruit Kalidou Koulibaly have stalled. A report from Marca over the weekend claimed City were looking to Sevilla’s Jules Kounde as an alternative and the Europa League winners had rejected an opening bid of £51.7m. Irrespective of the position in which he adds to 314 appearances across all competitions for City, Fernandinho’s role as a guiding influence to youngsters like Phil Foden could also be key. Foden is aiming to build on a breakthrough campaign last time around but badly undermined his preparations for the new season when he broke coronavirus protocols while on international duty with England in Iceland and was sent home in disgrace. Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood also erred alongside Foden, with the duo entertaining women at England’s team hotel in breach of strict self-isolation rules. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went on the offensive last week, questioning England’s handling on Greenwood at a time when he was physically and mentally fatigued. However, Guardiola believes Foden should simply learn from an error of judgement for which he has must accept responsibility. “I am pretty sure Phil is going to make a good season,” he said. “He knows he made a mistake.

Erik Swanson – eFTW – Fantasy esports, comeback or game over?

first_imgErik Swanson, eFTWErik Swanson is the CEO of eFTW (Esports For The Win). The fantasy esports app is available on both iOS and Android and is an game in which users pick teams rather than players across League, Dota, CS:GO and more. The DFS industry as a whole is approaching something of a crossroads right now, and we asked Erik about the current potential for esports fantasy operators in particular, which has had a tough time in the last couple of years. With more recent entrants such as ESL Fantasy Gaming, HypSports and eFTW, plus others such as Taunt and Blizzard’s Overwatch game coming soon, there are clearly enough that still believe in its potential for success. Esports Insider: Why do you think the likes of Vulcun and AlphaDraft failed to take off in 2015/16?Erik Swanson: There are probably a host of reasons – from coming out too early in the evolution of fantasy esports to poor word-of-mouth, but I see it being two-fold. Firstly, esports scheduling probably doesn’t yet lend itself to a daily league and secondly, fantasy drafting was new to the esports scene and educating the audience was always going to take some time. In this case, being a first mover turned out to be a disadvantage.ESI: Do you think certain esports titles are better suited to fantasy than others? DraftKings for example has stuck with a reduced League offering whilst dropping all others.Erik: Oh, definitely.  Unlike traditional sports, there is no one governing body that sets specific schedules and matchups for competitions.  In that respect, League of Legends (LoL) is pretty far ahead of other esports such as CS:GO and Dota 2.“In this case, being a first mover turned out to be a disadvantage”LoL has proper scheduling, sometimes weeks in advance, and the games begin on-time — often with live streams available.ESI: With eFTW your offering differs to others on the market, and fantasy as most will know it. Players pick teams rather than individuals. Tell us about why you built eFTW the way you did.Erik: When I designed eFTW there were three driving forces behind the vision.Firstly, the platform. At the time, all of the esports fantasy offerings were web-based.  Esports fans are heavy mobile users so making an app-based game to me was a no brainer.Second, that it should be free:. And by free I really mean truly free.  No hidden tricks, in-app purchases or pay walls.  This was particularly important to ensuring we were a “pure” fantasy app and as far away as possible from some of the more gambling-esque options.Finally, ease of use: Anyone who has ever played fantasy sports knows it can be time consuming.  I wanted to build something that was both fun and rewarding, but also required a small-time commitment.  In eFTW, you can jump in, pick your winning teams and be back out within a couple minutes.A former pro player myself, I ultimately built eFTW as the type of app I would like to use.  People follow both teams and individual players in esports, but in my opinion the teams are easier to follow.ESI: What do you think of the other new wave of entrants into the fantasy esports market, such as HypSports and Taunt?Erik: I think both add a clever and fun spin to the market.“Things like the lack of a single governing body, unpredictable scheduling, teams spread all over the world, lots of different games, etc., all make esports very unique compared to traditional sports”By purchasing and leveling up players HypSports has created sort of a game/fantasy hybrid.  And when it launches, Taunt will provide a cool real-time bragging-rights element to the matches.  That’s part of what is so exciting about the fantasy esports space right now – there are no boundaries in place.  It’s like the Wild West and there are now so many exciting ways for fans to participate.ESI: Do you anticipate more league and tournament formats, such as ESL Fantasy Gaming, to take off and lead the charge for fantasy esports more generally, like Fantasy Premier League has done for fantasy football in the UK?Erik: I think the fantasy landscape will continue to evolve along with esports. As I’ve mentioned, things like the lack of a single governing body, unpredictable scheduling, teams spread all over the world, lots of different games, etc., all make esports very unique compared to traditional sports.  So if the traditional blueprint does apply, it won’t be for quite some time. Plus, aren’t we all rule breakers by nature anyway?  Who would have ever thought that playing games professionally could pay as much as playing quarterback.last_img read more

Clippers-Warriors is NBA’s most entertaining rivalry right now

first_imgBrent Barry grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and played the first 2 1/2 seasons of his 14-year NBA career for the Clippers, who were awful back then in the mid-1990s. As were the Golden State Warriors.The teams are now two of the NBA’s best, and their dislike for one another keeps growing. It has become a rivalry, something Barry could not have envisioned 20 years ago.“This was never really (something) I could say that I thought was going to be maybe feasible in my lifetime, that the Clippers and Warriors would have a rivalry that actually meant something, with two teams that are competitive and winning a lot of games, that have a lot of dynamic players and top players in the league on both rosters,” Barry, now a television analyst, said Tuesday during a TNT/NBA TV conference call.The teams squared off in an exhibition game Tuesday, with the Clippers cruising to an easy 130-95 victory over the defending champion Warriors before 15,889 at Staples Center. Barry’s father, Rick Barry, played eight years for the Warriors.The rivalry was already budding before this season. Then the Warriors got upset at a recent quote by Rivers, who said to get out of the West, a team needs some luck. He noted the Warriors did not have to play the Clippers or Spurs in the playoffs on their way to the NBA title in June.Some Warriors took that as Rivers saying they were lucky to win it, though Rivers has said repeatedly he did not mean it that way. Warriors guard Klay Thompson responded by calling Rivers “bitter” about the Warriors winning the championship.Golden State post Marreese Speights added to that Tuesday.“I guess they’re really just upset about us winning or something,” he said. “I don’t understand, but we won it.”Warriors interim coach Luke Walton smiled when the subject was broached.“I love it,” he said. “I’ve said it before, I think it’s great for the NBA. You get rivalries like this and teams that don’t like each other, as long as it doesn’t ever get dirty, I think it’s great for the league and for the fans and people enjoy watching it.”Clippers guard Austin Rivers had an interesting point of view.“I think whether either team would admit it, I think it’s out of mutual respect,” he said. “They don’t fear us at all, as they shouldn’t. They won the championship last year. And we don’t fear them.”Austin Rivers noted how friends told him over the summer it’s too bad they didn’t get the chance to play the Warriors in the postseason.“Well, we didn’t earn the right to play against them,” said Rivers, whose team would have played the Warriors in the conference finals had they not blown a 3-1 series lead against Houston in the semifinals. “Do I think we could have beaten the Warriors if we played them? I absolutely do. But the fact is, they did their part.”The younger Rivers is hopeful they’ll get that chance this season.“This is a team we want to play and want to beat,” he said. “They don’t really like us and a lot of our guys don’t really like them.”In the game: Clippers forward Blake Griffin led all players with 29 points, J.J. Redick scored 15 and DeAndre Jordan had 10 points, 10 rebounds and four steals. Three reserves — Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford and Josh Smith — all scored in double figures, with Rivers getting 16 and Smith and Crawford 13 apiece.The Clippers, now 2-3 in exhibition play, had lost their previous three games. They lost their most recent game, to Charlotte in China, by 42 points.“It was important to get a good rhythm and I think it was important to kind of wash that taste out of our mouths from the last three games,” Griffin said. “And I thought we did that, I thought we looked better and I think that’s the result of the way we’ve practiced the last three days.”There were seven player technical fouls — five for the Clippers, two for Chris Paul — who was ejected in the third quarter. Mostly, it was players arguing with officials, though there was a bit of back-and-forth chirping between the tea.That bugged Doc Rivers.“Yeah, I didn’t like that,” he said. “That’s the only negative of the game. I think that was way too many techs in one game. And for both teams, I didn’t like that at all. I don’t mind the energy both teams have toward each other, but you can do it without the technicals and all that stuff.”The Warriors (2-3) played without Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala, who were rested. They got a team-high 21 points from Thompson.Draymond Green, who scored nine points, wasn’t all that worried about the loss, but he wasn’t thrilled by its margin.“No, I don’t think losing is a deep concern,” he said. “Losing by 35 isn’t OK, though.”The Clippers shot 54.9 percent from the field and held Golden State to 41 percent. Blake Griffin and Shaun Livingston exchanged words early in the third quarter, but there were no real heated moments. Clippers coach Doc Rivers would not have been surprised if there were, though, because he experienced some of that in exhibition games during his playing days. “I’ve seen it, been involved in it as a player,” he said. Clippers fans were into it Tuesday, booing passionately when the Warriors’ starting lineup was announced. Barry was humorous when talking about the situation, sounding more like a hungry reporter than a former player.“Well, I know Reggie (Miller) and I don’t mind it one bit,” he said of his broadcasting partner. “It always makes for a lot more interesting topics if they’re on NBA TV or TNT on any given night. We’ve got a lot more meat to bite into when they play one another.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
