Nicholas McGee Published on Sep. 16, 2018 Sep. 16, 2018 Wilfried Zaha believes he would have to suffer a broken leg for one of his opponents to be sent off four a foul on him. The Crystal Palace forward's wonderful individual effort earned his side a 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday but was forced to endure another game that saw him on the receiving end of several hefty challenges. Mathias Jorgensen angered Zaha by pulling him down in the contest at the John Smith's Stadium, with the Dane shown only a yellow card for his actions. The 25-year-old has drawn 11 fouls so far this season, with only Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Leicester's James Maddison and Will Hughes of Watford receiving greater such attention. Speaking to BBC Sport following the victory, a frustrated Zaha said: “I feel like before anyone gets a red, I'd have to get my leg broken or something. That's why I lose my head. … [Read more...] about Zaha: I’d have to break my leg for someone to get a red card!

The head coach admitted to “having sleepless nights” about switching from his normal 4-4-2 formation to match the Blades’ wing-back system after a run of three successive wins.But it snuffed out the free-scoring visitors to such an extent that Niki Maenpaa did not have a testing save to make at Ashton Gate - and an 81st minute header from substitute Marley Watkins bagged another three points.Johnson said: “It doesn’t matter what game plan you employ if the players do not carry it out - and today they did it to perfection.“Switching things around was not a decision I took lightly, but I felt it was right to set up to match Sheffield United because of their quality.“They create very good overloads down both channels so we had to work on nullifying … [Read more...] about Blades reaction: It’s the worst feeling in the world, says Sheffield United boss Wilder
By Terrence McCoy, The Washington Post FREDERICKSBURG, Pa. - It was minutes before the end of the first shift, and the beginning of the second, and the hallways at the chicken plant swarmed with workers coming and going. One pulled a hairnet over her curly hair, giggling at a joke. Two others exchanged kisses on the cheek. A woman with a black ponytail hugged everyone within reach. And a thin, ashen woman, whom no one greeted or even seemed to notice, suddenly smiled.There he was. Standing near the lockers. Tall and crew-cut. Her boyfriend. "Hi," said Heaven Engle, 20."Hey," replied Venson Heim, 25.They met every day at this time, before he started his shift as a mechanic at Bell & Evans Plant 2, and she started hers as "I don't know what they call it; I just check the chicken." It was the hardest moment of her day. She knew she was about to go at least eight hours without speaking English, or probably anything at all, in a plant where nearly all of the workers were Latino … [Read more...] about She speaks English.
