Get completely right physically and he has to believe again in his qualities.”Not being able to perform at the same level as he was before could have given him certain doubts and then if you add the injuries then you end up with bigger doubts.”The results that United have had in the last few weeks are going to help him get back that confidence and from then he will have to push himself to reach the levels of performance that everyone knows he is capable of. Good players always find their level again.”I am convinced that Alexis has the quality to deliver for any team in the world and sooner or later he will be showing what he is capable of and become a very important player for Manchester United.”

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – AUGUST 23: Snoop Dogg attends the Prive Revaux Investor Closing Party at Club James in Beverly Hills on August 23, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California. (Photo by Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for Prive Revaux Eyewear)Up until yesterday, rapper Snoop Dogg was arguably the most famous USC football fan. He frequently repped the Trojans by wearing ‘SC jerseys,hanging on the sideline at games and shouting out the program.All of that changed yesterday, when Snoop’s son, four-star WR Cordell Broadus, committed to USC’s crosstown rival UCLA. Snoop wore a UCLA jersey during his son’s announcement on ESPNU, and vowed he would be a Bruin fan moving forward. He even said he would get rid of his prized USC underwear. Apparently, he has, but not before giving them a touching tribute on social media. Here’s Snoop’s Instagram ode to his USC undergarments, complete with lyrics from Boyz II Men’s 90’s R&B hit, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.”Beautiful stuff, really. Snoop has a long history of wearing blue as well so he should fit in as a UCLA fan just fine, at least from a fashion standpoint.

Check it out.Someone give that man a Halls. I’m sure Fox will take losing his voice for the trade-off of a road win in conference.[ Sporting News ]
