Robin Larsson Wins Big at Lydden Hill at Season Opener of NRX

Robin Larsson completed the perfect weekend after winning the action-packed final after the season-opening event at Lydden Hill.

Larsson took home the gold after running a clean and safe race away from the carnage of lap 1 in the final. His teammate, Andreas Bakkerud, scored a nice second-place finish behind him to lock in RX Cartel’s first 1-2 finish of the season gaining vital points for the team championship.

Further back Niclas Gronholm rounded out the podium finishing third after showing up to the event with no testing and having never driven an electric vehicle before. Gronholm proved his skills as he sat in for Kevin Eriksson who sustained a foot injury taking him out of competition. The Finnish driver garnered some hefty points for team OMSE and may see a return later in the season.

FSG were ‘happy’ to pay £73m for Jadon Sancho last summer but balked at one demand, says David Lynch

Manchester United star Jadon Sancho reportedly was an admired target at Anfield prior to his switch away from Borussia Dortmund with Liverpool’s owners, FSG, prepared to fork out the £73m necessary to sign the wide man.

This update comes courtesy of David Lynch who notes that the player’s wage demands came in the way of a deal being finalised between the two outfits.

“Jadon Sancho had two major admirers at Anfield in manager Jurgen Klopp and his assistant Pep Lijnders, while owners Fenway Sports Group were more than happy to meet Borussia Dortmund’s £73m price tag to secure his signature,” the reporter wrote for The National News.

“Unfortunately, any potential move was scuppered when the Englishman’s wage expectations became clear, paving the way for him to sign a £270,000-per-week deal at Old Trafford.

“Had the 22-year-old been willing to accept half that, then he would have become a Liverpool player; Read the rest

“He’s Ten Hag’s man” – Manchester United urged to pay up for potential €85million transfer

Manchester United need to be bold and pay the big money required to deliver the transfer of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

That’s the view of former Red Devils midfielder Luke Chadwick, who also spoke to CaughtOffside about Richard Arnold’s chat with fans at the pub earlier this week.

The new Man Utd CEO gave some honest answers to a few supporters over drinks after learning that they planned to protest outside his house.

Chadwick praised Arnold for the things he said, and felt it was encouraging to hear from him that money would not be an issue in the pursuit of the club’s transfer targets this summer.

With that in mind, Chadwick went on to say he’d like to see United pay up to bring in De Jong for new manager Erik ten Hag.

“It’s quite a strange situation…from what I understand, the meeting with the fans at the … Read the rest

Barcelona goalkeeper decides to refuse transfer offers and stay put at the club

In a surprise turn of events, as reported by SPORT, Barcelona goalkeeper Neto has decided against leaving the club and is ready to reject all offers he has on the table this summer.

Signed from Valencia almost three years ago, the Brazilian has spent almost his entire time at Barça playing second-fiddle to Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Indeed, Neto has gotten a look-in only when the German international is out injured or being rested for cup ties.

As a result, the 32-year-old has made just 21 appearances for the Blaugrana to date, with four of them coming in the 2021/22 campaign.

Neto has been pushing for an exit from Camp Nou since last year as he sought regular playing time. And the Catalans were prepared to sanction an exit for the shot-stopper this summer with Inaki Pena primed to take over as ter Stegen’s understudy from the upcoming season.

However, in … Read the rest

Gillilands celebrate Father’s Day with Knoxville win

With his NASCAR Cup Series rookie season currently in its bye week, Todd Gilliland decided to celebrate Father’s Day weekend by joining David Gilliland‘s team for a Camping World Truck Series one-off at Knoxville Raceway, and he gave Dad the perfect gift of a trip to Victory Lane.

Carson Hocevar, a weekly favourite who could never seem to find the luck to finish the deal and win his maiden race, saw his drought continue as he led the first sixty-five laps and won Stage #1 before his engine expired. Gililand assumed the lead which he held to claim the second stage.

Gilliland faced some resistance in Stage #3 from John Hunter Nemechek, but a late restart with ten laps remaining saw him hold off Nemechek to claim his third career Truck win. As a member of David Gilliland Racing, he now has four victories with … Read the rest

‘Nobody was really interested’ – Taki Minamino drops biggest hint of potential Liverpool exit with domestic cup comments

Taki Minamino has revealed his frustration at a lack of playing time at Liverpool following his move away from RB Salzburg.

The 27-year-old made 22 appearances for the Reds last term but registered 11 goal contributions across several impressive showings and cameos in the 2021/22 campaign.

“Most of the matches I played in (mainly cup matches) were ones that nobody was really interested in. Even if I got a result, it wouldn’t have any repercussions,” the Japanese international was quoted as saying by Soccer Digest Web (as translated on Reddit).

“I didn’t think about those external things at all, I just pushed myself hard to prove my own worth.

“As a player, I have never had such a difficult period of not being able to compete. I was conscious of how I could maintain my condition in that situation and how I could use my frustration to the next.

Leeds have no intention of selling winger amid Premier League interest

Leeds have no intention of selling winger Jack Harrison amid interest from Tottenham and Newcastle.

Harrison has played a pivotal role at Leeds since he arrived from Manchester City, and with Raphinha’s future in doubt, Jesse Marsch won’t want to be losing two of his star players.

According to GOAL, Raphinha is close to securing a move to Arsenal, but it appears Leeds won’t be allowing Harrison to leave the club.

That’s according to talkSPORT, who claim Leeds have ‘no intention’ of allowing him to leave, amid interest from Tottenham and Newcastle, as seen in the tweet below.

Raphinha ‘very close’ to joining Arsenal because of ‘Barcelona’s disappearance’

According to a recent report published by GOAL, Barcelona’s primary right-wing target, Leeds United’s Raphinha, is ‘very close’ to joining Arsenal.

Raphinha was Barça’s first-choice target to replace Ousmane Dembele, who is set to depart on a free transfer on June 30th.

The Brazilian is represented by former Barcelona player Deco, who is still on excellent terms with the club administration. This made the transfer easier for the Catalans, but the situation has changed massively since then.

The report states that sources at Leeds state that “Barcelona have disappeared”, while Arsenal have been building a strong case to rope in Raphinha.

Moreover, Raphinha does not want to wait any longer before sealing his departure to a high-status club. Nor is he in favour of taking a pay-cut, waiting for any ‘economic lever’ or ‘major exit’ that can help facilitate his transfer.

Casino turn, Monaco

The streets of Monte Carlo are comprised of 18 narrow corners, with each one having a story behind its name. 

  The first corner of the circuit is called after a chapel which is found right behind the massive barriers and the display screens. Saint Devote is one of the easier corners of the circuit with enough width as it has a pit lane exit and a run-off area. But don’t be mistaken, the exit can be tricky. 

  Beau Rivage and Massenet is not a straightforward section of corners as some may believe. Because of the high-speed nature of the corners, there is also a drastic change in altitude for the drivers to cope with which can throw the car off-balance. The Beau Rivage and Maaenet is from the famous opera composer – Jules Massent. 

  The fourth corner is aptly called Casino Square which is the most famous corner of the Read the rest
