He followed up by scoring twice in the 4-0 win over Red Star.Sheffield was frustrated when John Lundstram hit the post and the video assistant referee ruled out a goal for David McGoldrick because of an offside in the build-up.VAR was kinder to Sheffield when George Baldock’s cross ended up in the net at the far post in the 78th. A video review found Chris Basham hadn’t been offside as the ball flew past his head.Spurs’ inconsistent form is one reason for the pressure on manager Mauricio Pochettino, but the league table is damning for last season’s Champions League finalist.

Just like the 1600s

And that’s exactly the point Hoover’s kindergarten teachers were trying to make. From mending socks to baking pumpkin bread, the school’s three kindergarten teachers spent the past week teaching students about life in the 1600s – and whenever possible, showing them what it was like. “For instance, they had to study by candlelight, so we talked about electricity,” said teacher Letty Mendoza. “And there were no washing machines, so some of them said their grandmas told them they used to wash clothes by scrubbing them in a bucket.” Mendoza’s class performed a Thanksgiving play on Tuesday – and on Wednesday, they gathered with the two other kindergarten classes to eat soup before being dismissed early for the long holiday weekend. • Photo Gallery: Annual Thanksgiving play WHITTIER – Pilgrims and American Indians had it pretty tough back in the old days, according to Hoover Elementary School kindergartners who stepped back in time this week to learn about the first Thanksgiving. If their socks had holes, the Pilgrims had to mend them, said 6-year-old Zoey Gaxiola. And if they were hungry, they made their own meals from food they had planted and grown. last_img read more

Liverpool are guaranteed to be top at Christmas – but it could be a bad omen

first_img latest The Reds’ form this season has been nothing short of phenomenal, having taken 46 out of a possible 48 points thus far.With Liverpool rampant and eight points clear of second-placed Leicester, it seems like the stars are aligning for the six-time European champions to claim their first top flight title in almost 30 years.Or are they?Funnily enough, we at talkSPORT.com were echoing similar sentiments last year when Liverpool were four points clear at the top of the tree – and we all know how that ended.History dictates that the team which sits top of the pile on Christmas Day usually goes on to win the title, but the omens aren’t all great for the Reds.Incredibly, on only three occasions in the last ten years has a team failed to win the Premier League after topping the table at Christmas… and it was Liverpool every time. Ian Holloway thinks Arsenal have made a mistake in hiring Mikel Arteta Liverpool are top at Christmas for the third time in the last ten years Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ statement Its official. Liverpool will be top of the Premier League table at Christmas.Having won 15 of their 16 games this season, Reds fans from across the country will be eating their Christmas dinner with their club sitting pretty at the top of the table.
