“The Turkish Duncan Ferguson” – Reaction to Cenk Tosun's Everton debut in game away to Tottenham

It was a frustrating game for the Turkish international Saturday, January 13, 2018 Striker Cenk Tosun made his Everton debut in the Toffees’ Premier League encounter at Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.  The Turkish player completed his move to Merseyside from Besiktas last week for a reported fee of £27million to the excitement of many of the Everton faithful.  It was not a dream debut for Tosun, however.

Is cricket the hardest sport to win away from home?

“Attendances in Test cricket are going down because you know who is going to win before you turn up. There has to be jeopardy as to who wins the game. I’m a Newcastle fan and I turn up genuinely thinking they have a chance of winning every single game in the Premier League. They’ve not, but they have more of a chance than England had in Brisbane at the start of this Ashes series.” Perhaps former England spinner Graeme Swann has a point.
