The Crew will also receive a 2019 international player slot from Orlando City.The trade was first reported by ESPN FC.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The 29-year-old Meram set a career high in goals this season, scoring 13 times in 34 games for the Crew. He added seven assists, which was the second-best mark of his career following 13 assists in 2016.The Michigan-born Meram, who represents Iraq internationally, was reported to have requested a trade from the Crew this winter.”An emotional day for myself as I say goodbye to the club who drafted me, molded me into the person I am today and gave me the opportunity to fulfill my dream as a professional for seven years,” he wrote on Instagram.”The fans have welcomed a Michigan man into Ohio as one of their own. My coaches have helped me raise my level on the field, and my teammates who I battled with every day at training and under the lights! Thank you Columbus. This was not easy for me by any means asking to move on but it was time. Time for me to be fearless and move on to the next chapter of my life with new challenges.”Orlando City SC… I am so excited for this opportunity, your belief in me and I am ready to help this club achieve great things in the near future.”Both Columbus and Orlando have seen significant overhauls this winter. The Crew dealt striker Ola Kamara to the LA Galaxy earlier in January in a deal that netted Columbus United States international Gyasi Zardes and $400,000 in allocation money.Orlando City, which saw legend Kaka depart at the end of the season, acquired playmaker Sacha Kljestan from the New York Red Bulls in early January, trading away Carlos Rivas and Tommy Redding in the deal.The Lions also added 19-year-old attacking attacking midfielder Josue Colman as a young designated player from Club Cerro Porteno of Paraguay’s Primera División. They also traded for the rights to highly-rated college midfielder Cam Lindley, acquiring the North Carolina standout from the Chicago Fire for Rafael Ramos.Selected by the Crew with the 15th pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, Meram has played in 188 regular-season games for the Crew, scoring 37 goals and adding 33 assists over that span.Meram was a member of the Crew side that fell in the 2015 MLS Cup final to the Portland Timbers. He signed a new contract with the Crew prior to the 2017 season.last_img read more

The American, signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, has found it hard to break into Frank Lampard’s starting XI this season.But he came off the bench against Ajax on Wednesday to provide an assist for Michy Bathsuayi’s winner, and Azpilicueta says it was just rewards for the 21-year-old.Azpilicueta said: “Christian has been working very hard, we know that only 11 can start and seven subs are on the bench,” he added. “So fair play to Christian for continuing to work hard. When he has come on in the last two games he has made a significant impact and he changed the game.”He nearly got an assist last Saturday but he was running at people, he was taking people on, creating chances and tonight he got the assist. We are here to work as a team, we know that everybody is important and we have to all go in the same direction.”Christian is 21 and he has been playing since he was young at Dortmund. But England is different. The pace of the game is different and we cannot forget this as well. Since Christian arrived from the beginning he has been very good.”Sometimes you need more time to adapt to the game but he has done it in the last two games. That’s what we need Christian to do but we need to keep calm, to work with the young lads, we know that.”We have a young squad but we have been working really hard since pre-season and the only way I see this team improving is by the work ethic that we have had in every training session and every game.

They led 21-7 at halftime, and it was never really close.You’d think that fans would be in a celebratory mood, with the Vols recording their third bowl win in a row, making them three-for-three in the Butch Jones era.But instead of high-fiving and fist-pumping, Tennessee fans decided to, uh, just fight each other.Watch:The Music City Bowl is for the whole family to enjoy (via @A10Warpig) pic.twitter.com/Um2lI2ZaZg— Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) December 30, 2016I’m not quite sure what prompted the confrontation, or how it was resolved (did it even end up resolved?), but the whole imbroglio seemed like a real waste of beer.

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)The Michigan Wolverines were one of the most impressive teams throughout the season, but a disappointing showing against the Ohio State Buckeyes destroyed any chance of them making the College Football Playoff.It’s very possible that this upcoming bowl game could be the final collegiate appearance for many players on the Wolverines, including Shea Patterson. Fortunately for them, it appears a New Year’s Six game is in their future.With the regular season over, several sites are revealing their 2018 bowl projections.Jerry Palm of CBS Sports has Michigan in the Rose Bowl against Washington. The Huskies still have to play in the Pac-12 Championship against Utah.College Football News also has the Wolverines in the Rose Bowl against the Huskies. Eric Single of Sports Illustrated has Michigan facing Florida in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, as the Gators finished their season with a dominant victory over Florida State.This season won’t end with a national championship for the Wolverines, but it’ll still be another chance for Jim Harbaugh to finish strong.Michigan will officially receive its matchup next Sunday.last_img read more

Phil Mickelson has become a major endorser for the brand, and got a share of the company in return.The golf star wore Mizzen+Main shirts during play last year, and appeared in a viral ad for the company.Kyler Murray isn’t the first NFL player to endorse Mizzen+Main, either.J.J.

3 Options For The Arizona Cardinals If They Really Don’t Want To Take Kyler Murray No. 1 Overall

(Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)The Arizona Cardinals own the rights to the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL Draft, and up until a day or two ago, it seemed likely that they were going to take former Oklahoma star Kyler Murray No. 1 overall. But a new report from CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco suggests otherwise.Sunday, Prisco reported that the Cardinals are “pulling back” from Murray and could go in a different direction. In fact, he flat-out said that the Cardinals “are not” going to draft Murray.To be fair, this could be a total smokescreen. NFL teams often leak news to the media that serves their best interest – especially right before the draft. But if it’s true, the Cardinals seemingly have three real options.The first option is to keep the pick and draft former Ohio State defensive lineman Nick Bosa. In that situation, the Cardinals would obviously be committing themselves to last year’s first round pick Josh Rosen at quarterback.The second option is to take former Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, who many believe is actually the best player in the draft. It wouldn’t make a ton of sense given the team’s draft picks the past few years, but it’s still possible.The third option, which is the most fun, involves the Cardinals trading the pick to the Oakland Raiders, who would presumably draft Murray. If Jon Gruden really has as much interest in the former Oklahoma star as is being reported, it could make a lot of sense. That would also involve the Raiders deciding that Derek Carr is not their guy at quarterback.In that scenario, the Raiders would likely get the No. 4 pick and some other compensation. They’d probably miss out on Bosa, Williams and Murray.We’ll find out the right answer on Thursday night.last_img read more

Sports Illustrated Names 5 Teams That’ll Be Worse In 2019

first_img TexasNotre DameNorthwesternKentuckyWest VirginiaTexas and Notre Dame are the two programs that figure to be highly-ranked in the preseason. In fact, the Sporting News picked the Longhorns to reach the College Football Playoff.However, Tom Herman’s team loses a ton of production, particularly on defense. As for the Fighting Irish, well, they will be good this fall, but anything short of another perfect regular season would technically be regression.Considering Notre Dame must play Georgia, Michigan, Louisville and Stanford on the road, the odds of the Irish going 12-0 are slim. Meanwhile, Northwestern is unlikely to reach the Big Ten title game again, and they’ll be breaking in a new quarterback, just like West Virginia.Can Kentucky win 10 games again after doing so for just the third time ever last season? It will be a tough task with Georgia and Florida looking like the top two teams in the SEC East.You can read SI’s full analysis here.

He was recently named the school’s “Minister of Culture” and he teaches at the Moody College of Communication in the Department of Radio-Television-Film.Today, he was the guest picker for ESPN’s College GameDay, live from Austin. The show was in town ahead of tonight’s fantastic match-up between the No. 9 Longhorns and No. 6 LSU.Unfortunately for McConaughey and everyone else in burnt orange, this one appears to be going to the Tigers. LSU leads 45-38 with less than a minute left. The second half has been an absolute shootout, and Texas got within a touchdown, at 37-31, when LSU hit on a huge, potentially game-sealing touchdown.On 3rd-and-17 with under three minutes left, Joe Burrow found Justin Jefferson on a back-breaking 61-yard touchdown.Matthew McConaughey was caught on camera after the play, and you can’t say his reaction wasn’t totally genuine.pic.twitter.com/CpDzUqJbsE— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) September 8, 2019He is certainly representing all Longhorn fans with that F-Bomb. Texas has been hanging in tonight, especially rebounding from a very lackluster first half.LSU has just been too much, and look like they might finally be capitalizing on the promise this program has had for years now. The Tigers offense looks better than it has in years.Texas should be very competitive this year, but tonight, LSU sent a big message to college football.last_img read more

Kick Up Your Taste Buds With Ballymaloe Irish Ketchup

Kick Up Your Taste Buds With Ballymaloe Irish Ketchup

first_img Portion Control: The Best Meal Prep Containers on the Market Pro Chefs Dish on the Perfect Seven-Layer Dip Recipes The Best Leg Exercises for Sculpted Calves, Quads, and More The Peached Tortilla’s Fried Rice Recipe Is Just Plain Delicious If you want to make your St. Pat’s party a hit, take some tips from a real Irish family-run business. They’ve created a line of relish, ketchup and sauces that will add that extra zing to your dishes.It started in the 1930s when Ivan and Myrtle Allen had an overflow of tomatoes on their Ballymaloe Farm in Ireland. Myrtle began making a country relish and when they opened a restaurant in 1964, the relish became a customer favorite.Spin the clock forward to 1990—that’s when their daughter, Yasmin, used the relish recipe to fill orders for shops and restaurants. Ballymaloe Foods now offers a variety of products. We love the taste of the Gourmet Irish Ketchup, even more so when we found out it only has nine 100% natural ingredients: tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, onions, raisins, tomato puree, salt, mustard seeds and spices. The ketchup is non GMO, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.Sausage Rolls Served with Ballymahoe Original Sauce (pictured above)Makes 8-10For the sausages:• 8 oz lean pork, minced• 8 oz pork fat, minced• 1 clove garlic, crushed• 1—2 teaspoons thyme, marjoram, basil and rosemary, mixed and chopped• 1 egg, beaten• 1 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs• salt and pepper to tasteFor the pastry:• 10 oz puff pastry• 1 egg, beaten• A little milkFor serving:• Ballymaloe Original Sauce MethodPreheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC/gas 4.Combine all the ingredients for the sausages together and mix well. Fry a little of the mixture in a pan to check the seasoning, adjust if necessary. On a floured work surface, roll the pastry out into a large rectangle, a little thicker than a nickel, and cut lengthways into two long, even rectangles. Roll the mixture into sausage shapes with your hands and lay along the center of each rectangle. Mix the egg and milk and brush the pastry with the mixture, then fold one side of the pastry over, wrapping the filling inside. Press down with your fingers or the edge of a spoon to seal. Cut the long rolls into the sizes you want and space them out on a baking tray. Brush with the rest of the egg wash. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until puffed, golden and cooked through. Serve with Ballymaloe Original Sauce.
