Pep Guardiola admits Manchester City will ultimately be judged on whether they win the Champions League despite wrapping up an unprecedented domestic treble with a 6-0 whipping of Watford in the FA Cup final.

"I know unless we do that it will not be enough." "This comes with me. I know that. I arrived in Barcelona, we were lucky we won it two times in four years and the people expect I am something special, that we have to win the Champions League and it's still true." Guardiola, who has not tasted European success … [Read more...] about Man City need to win Champions League, says Guardiola

Viet Nam News HÀ NỘI — The ASEAN Football Federation U22 Championship has come to an end after a week with Indonesia beating Thailand 2-1 in the final to win the cup. Indonesia’s road to the AFF U22 Championship Final was filled with obstacles. Garuda Muda had started the competition on a dull note, drawing both their opening matches. However, a 2-0 win yesterday in their final group game against Cambodia, along with a little help from elsewhere, allowed them to qualify for the semifinal, Foxsports reported. Indonesia faced Thailand in the final after the War Elephants had beaten hosts Cambodia in the semifinal themselves. The reigning champions, meanwhile, had also finished runners-up in their group, winning two and drawing one of their games. The first half ended with neither side being able to outsmart the other.

Viet Nam News By Robert Bicknell As a golf pro, club manager and general observer of the human condition, I have often wondered why people cheat when there is no reason to. What drives them to do so? Why do people cheat to win tournaments, why do they cheat on their handicaps? Not all players try to inflate their handicaps, some players also only put in their best cards to have a lower handicap than actual, just to walk around the clubhouse with their chest stuck out. Why do they do it? In golf, we like to say that “you’re only cheating yourself” and “you have to look at yourself in the mirror every morning and know you’re a cheater”, but if you analyze those statements without emotion, you’d quickly realize that it’s complete and total bullshit because everyone cheats at something, or has the capacity to do so. In my opinion, cheating depends on the opportunity, the chances and penalties for getting caught and the rewards for … [Read more...] about People who cheat to win at anything
