It is not easy to have the camera in your office.“It’s about how you handle the situation.“It is so complicated and another thing to worry about.“Of course, it adds a lot to the job. If we were busy before we are super busy now. To plan every day, everything is not an easy job.“I said in the summer I felt I was not a manager any more, I was a coach.“Now I feel I am a coach, manager and producer. Like Spielberg, yes — well, nearly.”Screen stars will tell you timing is everything, so why Spurs agreed to let cameras in this season is baffling.After Close Encounters with glory in previous seasons, when it seemed Poch was taking the club Back To The Future, they pick a campaign that has so far been a Temple Of Doom.Money played a key part but Spurs would have been seduced by the chance to repeat the success of Manchester City’s documentary Fight ’Til The End.Etihad boss Pep Guardiola and his players earned rave reviews for the series, winning them plaudits and opportunities, not only in this country but beyond. Spurs will be hoping for the same.The difference is, of course, that City were filmed as they won the Premier League.2But Tottenham are appearing during the toughest spell of Poch’s reign. Amazon probably cannot predict which genre the show will be screened under — sport, reality, thriller, action, disaster, horror, comedy — whoknows?One thing is for sure, it is certain to be must-see.And the irony is, Pochettino’s first Spurs trophy could turn out to be a Bafta!He added: “The most important thing is to live the reality, not to try and generate something that is not real.“What the people are going to love to see is that we are normal people. I hope there is a happy ending.”Tottenham go to Liverpool tomorrow in good heart after their 5-0 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade.last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires My rankings are specifically for the Cardinals — so if you are worried why I have Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert ranked lower than most, it’s simply because his position doesn’t lend itself to the Cardinals’ needs as much as maybe FIU safety Jonathan Cyprien.Tier One1. Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama2. Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU3. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia4. Eric Fisher, LT, Central Michigan5. Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M6. Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah7. Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia8. Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon9. Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina10. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYUThese are the ten players I would be comfortable with the Cardinals taking with the seventh pick in the draft. I know, no Lane Johnson, that’s unfortunately how I feel about Johnson.Tier Two11. Lane Johnson, LT, Oklahoma12. Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State13. Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia14. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee15. Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State16. Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International17. Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State18. Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame19. Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas20. Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise StateThe above are ten players I’d be in favor of the Cardinals selecting if they were to move down in the first round. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories The week of the draft, I will add an additional 50 names, to give Cardinals fans 150 names to watch for on draft day. With the draft a mere 17 days away, I get asked frequently on Twitter about what players I like, what players I don’t like and who I would want the Cardinals to draft if scenario x, y, or z unfolds. Well I’m going to try and make it easy for all of us.Here is my Arizona Cardinals Big Board, with a hat tip to Eric Stoner of Rotoworld.com/BleacherReport.com and Josh Norris of Rotoworld.com/NFL.com for the tiers idea. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Even if the Cardinals took any of these players at the top of round two, I wouldn’t be able to find much fault.Tier Five52.

Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern MississippiThese are guys I don’t know how they may fit with Arizona or where they’ll be drafted, but I like them as football players.They make plays, help their teams win games and most of them have a reason for why they are in this tier of players.These would be third or fourth round targets if I was running Cardinals draft.Tier Six68. Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee69. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State70. Marquise Goodwin, WR, Texas71. Manti Te’o, LB, Notre Dame72. B.W. Webb, CB, William and Mary73. Josh Evans, S, Florida74.

Justin Pugh, OG, SyracuseTrade down a little further than the mid-teens, move into the back end of round one, or take advantage of players that will inevitably fall to their second round pick, this is how I would prioritize them.Tier Four34.
