first_imgCongratulations to the Clemson Tigers on their national football championship.  They defeated Alabama 35-31 in another football classic.  Just like last year, the game came down to the 4th quarter.  This time Clemson got the 2-yard touchdown that put them over the top.Not many people, outside of Alabama, were probably rooting for the Tide.  However, Alabama has a record of football title games that has to be admired.  Don’t bet your house that they will not be back again next year.last_img

Mourinho considering Drogba return

first_img “We want to win matches and win titles and Didier is one of the best strikers in Europe. He is still very adapted to the needs of the Premier League and we are thinking about it in a non-emotional way.” Drogba was named as Chelsea’s greatest ever player in a poll of fans in 2012, having scored both the equaliser and the decisive shoot-out penalty as the Blues beat Bayern Munich in that year’s Champions League final. But Mourinho stressed: “If you bring him back it is not because he is Didier or scored the most important goal in the history of Chelsea, or because I read I need an assistant, no. If I bring him back, and the decision has to be made soon, it is because as a player he has qualities to make the team stronger. “The team is not about the 11. It is about the different options and w ith Didier’s profile, being a squad player I think he could be important for any team. “And because we know his heart is pushing him to where he feels he belongs, we are thinking about the possibility. (Chelsea owner Roman) Abramovich is very intelligent and he feels that people belong to the club. We feel that Didier belongs to us. “Is he coming back as a player one more year or a couple more years? Let’s see.” Drogba would join a crop of strikers including new signing Diego Costa as well as Romelu Lukaku and Victor Moses, who both spent last season out on loan. Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba have departed the club this summer. Reports in recent days have linked the Ivory Coast striker, a free agent after leaving Galatasaray, with a return to Stamford Bridge. And Mourinho has now broken his silence on the matter, telling several national newspapers: “We think about it.

A race to look for real solutions to the public health issue of gambling-related harm.”In his speech, McArthur recognises that industry incumbents have had to adapt to changing conditions and further regulatory demands imposed by the government.However, McArthur states that the tougher operational requirements are necessary for Britain to become the fairest and safest gambling jurisdiction in the world – the guiding principle of the UKGC as a regulatory organisation.“I want consumers in Britain to be able to enjoy the fairest and safest gambling in the world… and to achieve my aims I need your support: I need you to work together to make sure you are the best – the fairest, safest – gambling operators in the world.”__________________Read Neil McArthur full ‘Raising Standards Conference’  speech.
