Football News For Scouts From Spurs Academy...

Youth Academy Football Scouting. Goalless at half-time, the lads remained patient and finally broke the deadlock on the hour when emergency striker Nathan Byrne (pictured) converted from Paul McBride’s cross. Jessie Waller-Lassen clinched the 2-0 victory when he was picked out by youth footballer Tom Carroll and finished with 10 minutes remaining. “It was an interesting game and a good test for the lads,” reported coach Alex Inglethorpe. “Ipswich were very difficult to break down and that left us with two problems. The first was how we’d manage the counter-attack because it was likely that would happen and they looked like they could cause us problems if we left ourselves too open. “The second was how to break them down because they were strong through the middle of the pitch. “It took time but in the end we solved the problem and that was very pleasing. “Kudus Oyenuga had a one-on-one chance in the first half and we had other opportunities, nothing too clear-cut and they hit the woodwork with a counter-attack. It was even in terms of chances even though we’d dominated possession. “The thinking at half-time was that we needed to create more two-versus-one opportunities wide and our first goal on the hour came when Sam Cox, playing at left back, got forward and fed in Paul McBride and Nathan Byrne finished really well from six yards. “We looked in control and on 80 minutes we doubled...

Football Betting News – Bears Offense Show Big Potential...

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was a bit banged up and bruised days after battling it out with the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. As hurt as he was, Cutler got some relief from the early advantage brought about by the Bears’ fresh offense. The Chicago Bears are now 3-0 and the only unbeaten team in the NFC, with its offense providing its share of highlights under new coordinator Mike Martz. “We’re growing, we’re still young, we’re still pretty young in this offense,” Cutler said.  “I think Mike is still trying to figure out exactly where we’re at, what he can call in certain situations, what we can handle on a week to week basis as far as game-planning wise, what we can handle during the game, what he can go do, what doesn’t really work for us.  So, like everyone is still kind of growing and gelling together.” Even Martz isn’t sure how good the Bears’ offense can be. “I really don’t know, and that’s the fun part of this,” he said.  “There’s enough talent here, and it’s exciting because each week we continue to get better.” The Bears seem to have no difficulty getting the big plays, with 12 completions for 20 or more yards tying them for fifth in that category.  But when they needed a yard on fourth down at the goal line, like what happened against Green Bay or in the opener against...

Football – The Oakland Raiders...

One of the most colorful franchises in all of professional football is without a doubt the Oakland Raiders. Based out of Oakland, CA, the Raiders are yet another original AFL member that came into the NFL during the merger in 1970. As a member of the AFC West, the Raiders have been to 5 Super Bowls, winning 3 of them. Let’s take a closer look at the history of the Oakland Raiders. Al Davis has owned the Raiders since 1972. Originally founded in Oakland, the team played there until Davis moved them to Los Angeles in 1982. Later, the team moved back to Oakland in 1995 and remains there to this day. The football team has had the colors of silver and black since Davis was general manager of the team in 1963. He used these colors originally because all TV’s were available in black and white only and these colors showed up better than others. John Madden became the head coach of the Raiders in 1969. He later guided the team to its first ever Super Bowl win in 1976. Madden stayed on as coach of the football team until 1979 when he left the team and the league, to go into TV broadcasting. In 1982, Davis moved the team to Los Angeles, due in part to the refusal of the city of Oakland to remodel the football stadium. In their first year in Los Angeles, the team...
