THFC All or Nothing

A team that achieves unprecedented success (Manchester City, the all-or-nothing ‘football theme’ from the previous season), a great team struggling to get out of a tough spot (Amazon Prime series Take Us Home: Leeds United ), or a team that always fights on the wrong side of the scoreboard, but remains an integral part of the city and local culture (Sunderland ‘Til I Die on Netflix) – there is enough drama on each of these tracks that a viewer the time you need more compulsion to tune will be wasted.

thfc all or nothing
New coach Jose Mourinho is seen spending time with his players

The storyline

Basically, odds against All or Nothing – Tottenham Hotspur is their theme. What about the Spurs, after a year of average performances and not living up to expectations once again, is it worth being documented? This is where José Mourinho takes center stage.

In all likelihood, Spurs would have signed the deal with Amazon after a spectacular run to the UEFA Champions League final in 2019. Yet very few expected the club to implode at the start of the 2019-20 Premier League season which caused the departure of coach Mauricio Pochettino in mid-November of last year.

Editors Pick :

Documentary’s focus

Pochettino appears for about twenty-five minutes in episode one of the series, and that sets the narrative. The focus will be on the club’s resurgence with a new manager, the controversial José Mourinho, although we now know that it didn’t go as expected by President Daniel Levy. The team showed some struggle and hesitated before stuttering across the finish line.

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur Episode 4 - Rundown, Review & Key Talking Points -
This documentary also shows the rise of Japhet Tanganga who was their academy recruit!

The Spurs have a team full of superstar players, none more so than England captain Harry Kane. However, it is José Mourinho whose presence looms like a specter. The Portuguese coach is a cult figure of personality. We have loved and hated him in equal measure, but we never shy away from reading about him. In short, José Mourinho is today the same informant that he was when he arrived in England in 2004 and was given the name – ‘The Special One’.

About the episodes

All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur is a disappointment because we are presented with superficial documentation of Mourinho. The drama is missing. One of the most successful coaches of his generation, we see little of Mourinho’s tactical mind, not even in the game where we see Spurs with five goals against an unfortunate Burnley Team FC.

thfc all or nothing - dele ali
Dele Alli’s cover

With that said, we see the everyday side of Mourinho: the downright cheeky and foul-mouthed coach who is sincere about wanting Harry Kane to “blow up” and calls out Dele Alli for being lazy in practice.

However, there is a more than acceptable reference to community outreach programs; the only downside is that the series doesn’t stop at him either. Even though the series shows glimpses of how the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium was built and turns Levy into some sort of messiah, it would have been a bit better had they focused on how the sacking of Pochettino happened.

Here we got a glimpse of everything : From Kane’s and Son’s injury to their rise and how THFC made it to the Europa League!

What we felt!?

We must remember that this show is supported by a multinational company that is desperate to get into the Premier League broadcasting game. Amazon loves the drama and they gladly show us plenty — but there are many more secrets under the Spurs rock that haven’t been revealed. Honestly, we would have needed the rise of Spurs as a Champions League finalists or at least Pochettino’s tactics and strategy but all that we got was of The Special One Mourinho’s.

France vs Portugal 2020

Facing each other for the first time since Eder proved himself Portugal’s unlikely hero in the Euro 2016 final in the same venue, a pair of stellar attacks found no way to take on similar elite defenses.

Euro 2016 hangover

Didier Deschamps’ hosts, backed by 1,000 socially separated fans within the cavernous arena, were unable to reposition the form of free goals that saw them demolish Ukraine 7-1 in a weeknight-friendly.

Summary of the match

Portugal followed their 0-0 draw against Spain with another draw, though Pepe thought he had headed in a winning goal in the 74th minute, only to see the offside flag fly. Lucas Hernández made a final block to deny Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of Bernardo Silva’s skillful play in the 24th minute; The initial exchanges were easy on the eyes without giving much in scoring action.

Kylian Mbappe goes past Portugal FC’s defence

Antoine Griezmann stepped between Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro clung to Paul Pogba’s floating pass and shot Hugo Lloris, while Joao Félix provoked the ire of Ronaldo on the other end by launching on a Bruno Fernandes free-kick to deflect it from the Juventus. Superstar. This was the best chance for Portugal to gain upper hand in the scoreline. Joao Felix instead of throwing a leg to it should have seen who was there to cover the ball. This became a costly mistake as there were no close chances thereafter!

Challenge against Joao Felix

Kylian Mbappé sought to open the match early in the second half, beating Danilo Pereira with brilliant skill, but Rui Patricio saved his effort well. Interestingly, Ronaldo misjudged a half-volley attempt from Guerreiro’s search center and it was an infallible set-piece delivery from the Borussia Dortmund man who chose a hunched-over Pepe, whose celebrations were correctly interrupted.

Editors Pick :

A more familiar match-winner almost appeared in injury time, but Lloris came down sharply to repel Ronaldo at his first post. All to play in the second leg Despite the lack of a decisive moment, this was a high-class encounter with some of Europe’s best talent that attracted attention. Portugal and France have seven points from their three games and expect them to add three more each before meeting again next month.

Most of the France players posted a picture with the G.O.A.T Cristiano Ronaldo. Mbappe, who is currently rated as the best young player shared a moment with Ronaldo before the start of the second half. Raphael Varane and many other stars shared their best moment of the match with Cristiano. However, Pogba has deleted the post and this made fans go crazy!!

Koeman’s Barca

The Koeman era has started. No one knows how long it will last, yes, but it has started relatively well. Two impressive victories were followed by a somewhat frustrating draw at home, against a well-trained Sevilla.

Also read FC Barcelona’s New Coach Ronald Koeman might win them trophies in 2021!!

Some of Barça’s recurring problems did begin to manifest themselves in that match, especially their nervousness to close a match, and their dependence on Lionel Messi to initiate attacks. However, it has been promising. While Barca failed to attract all of their transfer targets to the club in a timely manner, the team is in a decent position in terms of depth and tactics.

koeman's babrca - koeman
FC Barcelona Coach – Ronald Koeman

Coach’s strategy

Ronald Koeman has persisted with his tiered build and 4-2-3-1 has sought to focus on more direct playing opportunities, compared to the slower build under Quique Setien. Additionally, he seems to emphasize close man-to-man pressure with an emphasis on closing the gap between individual players. The key to this press has been the double pivot, along with the two attacking central.

koeman's barca - ansu fati
Wonderkid Ansu Fati

Also read Ansu Fati starts his International career with a goal – Spain vs Ukraine – UEFA Nations League 2020!!

Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho have often functioned as central press triggers, with Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong often cleaning up and doubling down the resulting receivers. This pressure is really key to Koeman’s game, which focuses on quick losses and moving attacks against the progress of the game. There is less emphasis on absolute possession, but closer positioning between players means that the line is as high as usual.

This slight shift towards frankness, and the seemingly permanent addition of Ansu Fati, has made the team seem more cohesive and less closed. This, in turn, has led to early signs of independence from the Messi-based attacking game.

Bar vs Sev

This was especially evident in the first two games, where the collective game was better and less so in the draw against Sevilla. In the Sevilla match, Barça panicked when they couldn’t score and started kicking the ball to Messi. It shows that there is still work to be done. Koeman is making progress, but there are significant shortcomings on the list, many of which are beyond the coach’s reach.

For the fans :

The important thing for the culés is to temper the expectations. This is a team in transition and is patient. Koeman himself should seek blood in young people while maintaining a healthy balance between progress and results. That would be more than ideal. Just remember, 8-2 wasn’t that long ago.

OnePlus isn’t a new player in the audio segment and in the past it made its presence felt with the Bullet headphones that are still available on the market. OnePlus Buds, however, starts a new chapter for the company that has somehow revolutionized the mid-range smartphone segment in India. With OnePlus Buds Z launch around the corner, this is how the original Buds fared!!

OnePlus Buds offers a number of features for the existing OnePlus community (people who use an OnePlus device) and is definitely a good enough competitor to Apple’s AirPods. This is the best AirPods alternative for people who own an OnePlus device and are budget conscious. So is it worth the penny you spend? Check out:


Starting with the charging case, the oval-shaped case comes with a USB Type-C port at the bottom. The retail box comes with documentation and a USB cable for charging. Note that there is no charging adapter, which means you will have to rely on your laptop, phone adapter to charge the OnePlus Buds case. The sleek finish of the charging case gives it a less shiny feel, and that’s what most of us like.

Charging case

The OnePlus Buds’ case out fares the AirPods’ case, which is a bit shiny. It has a better grip and does not slip while holding. It feels premium despite its minimalistic appearance. However, we have to point out some astonishing similarities between the OnePlus Buds case and the second generation AirPods case. In particular, the back of the case has almost the same design elements as the AirPods’, with the shape of the case being the difference.

Editors Pick :

Speaking of the robustness of the case, the magnetic closure feels satisfying and gives you confidence while wearing it. The case quality of the OnePlus Buds is superior to other rivals in the under INR 5000 category. However, the OnePlus Buds doesn’t come with an LED indicator. The buds come with an IPX4 rating that makes them splash resistant, which is good enough for everyday use.

Color variants

One of the most striking things about the OnePlus Buds is that they come in three colors, including gray and Nordic blue, which look impressive. While there is also the standard white, which has somehow become the most boring color for the TWS segment but the gray and blue color variants are cheerful.

Three variants of the OnePlus Buds

Easy pairing

Pairing is one of the highlights of the OnePlus Buds and we can surely say that the OnePlus Buds are at the top of that list in terms of quick pairing. Open the case and if you are an OnePlus user, the Buds pairing notification will automatically appear on your device. Shortly after detection, the Buds are paired with a single tap.

TimesNow news team has tested it with different products, from OnePlus 5T to OnePlus 8 Pro. However, the same cannot be said for other Android or iPhone devices – “We would have liked OnePlus to provide even 50 percent of those granular controls and ease of use for non-OnePlus devices”.

Sound Quality

Speaking of sound quality, the OnePlus Buds perform solidly and won’t let you down while listening to music or making calls. The audio performance is impressive. It’s worth mentioning that OnePlus Buds balances the ups and downs during a track effortlessly and offers decent lows.

oneplus buds theunblog

13.4mm dynamic drivers offer powerful sound and Dolby Atmos offers a good stereo experience. The Buds come with a noise cancellation algorithm that improves sound clarity using the three microphones that help filter out background noise.

Speaking of performance during games, OnePlus users will once again gain an advantage over other devices, as the Buds come with low latency that syncs with Fnatic mode. OnePlus claims a minimum latency of 103ms during gaming, which is not a very good figure compared to other TWS options in this price range.

The upcoming week will surely be a feast for OnePlus and Apple fans as more than one device each is expected to debut!! Check out our site for more!

Luis Suarez

Suárez entered the Atlético de Madrid vs Granada match just in the 70th minute, replacing Diego Costa. At this point, Atlético de Madrid were already heading towards a comfortable victory. The former Barcelona superstar took just two minutes to make his impact on the pitch as he set Marcos Llorente up for the fourth goal of the night.

Then it seemed that Suárez had won a penalty for Simeone. However, the decision was reversed by the video assistant referee (VAR). However, it did not take long to reach the minutes, finishing at home. He then went on to double his score for the night in injury time after a splendid one-two with Vitolo.

Records galore on debut

With his double in the Atlético de Madrid-Granada clash, Suárez accumulates sensational records in his name. Now he has become the first Atlético de Madrid player to score and assist in his debut in the 21st century. In addition, he is also the first player to score two goals in his Atlético debut since the turn of the century.

Editors Pick :

Suárez has arrived with great enthusiasm to help us compete as we do. Hopefully, we can maintain our balance and prepare for our next game with humility. Players like him have the gift of scoring goals without effort, his movements open up so many possibilities in the attack, in addition to scoring two goals he also prepared Llorente, he has many characteristics that will help us improve.

Suarez’ farewell

He had a brilliant six-season stint with Barcelona that saw him emerge as the third top scorer in the club’s history. Ronald Koeman’s appointment at the Camp Nou forced him to lower the curtain on his time at the Catalan giants. After a failed move to defending Serie A champion Juventus, he finally agreed to a two-season contract with team Wanda Metropolitano.

UEFA Super Cup 2020

Bayern Munich opened the trophy account this season on Thursday. The Bavarians had to work hard to bring the UEFA Super Cup 2020 to Munich, as Sevilla had a great performance in Budapest. The German champions finally did enough to pull off a 2-1 win in extra time to win the match against the Europa League champions.

Sevilla’s tactical gameplay

Sevilla FC started the game strong, creating problems for Bayern’s defense. The Spanish team was finally rewarded for a good start when David Alaba brought down Ivan Rakitic in the penalty area. Lucas Ocampos went ahead to score the penalty against Manuel Neuer.

Bayern finally won the game and scored the tie through a neat move in the final third. Robert Lewandowski showed great awareness to head the ball off a Thomas Muller cross into Leon Goretzka’s path. The German midfielder slammed the ball over the goalkeeper to score in the second straight game.

Lewandowski had few chances to score the winning goal in regulation time, while Sevilla had a chance to clinch victory late in the game, but no one could break the deadlock before the final whistle. Javi Martínez entered the first half of extra time to score the winning goal. It was a narrow win to the Bavarians.

Victory off the extra time

Javi Martinez’s goal came off the ball from a set-piece as he cleverly placed his header in the upper corner after a shot from David Alaba was parried into the danger zone by the Sevilla goalkeeper. Martinez is still expected to leave the club before the deadline, but he is ending time in the successful stint in Bavaria in the best possible way rather than leaving the club through the back door. He goes to his next club as Mr. Supercup for the Bavarians.

Bayern Coach – Flick’s improvement over the season

UEFA Super Cup 2020 bayern coach hansi flick
FC Bayern coach Hansi Flick.

At the beginning of his term in Bayern Munich, Hansi Flick was not proactive with substitutions. He often stayed with his first-team for much longer before bringing in players at the end of the game. Like the team’s steady progress on the field, Flick has also improved on the touchline.

On Thursday, all the Flick changes had a positive impact on the game. Leroy Sane had a quiet game compared to his performance against Schalke last weekend. The German coach removed Sane in the 69th minute for Corentin Tolisso. The introduction of French allowed Bayern to have more control in midfield. Tolisso also provided a goal threat from the center of the ground.

Editors Pick :

As the game was ready to go in overtime, Flick decided to add a lot more pace in attack by bringing in Alphonso Davies for Lucas Hernandez. In addition, the French defender received a yellow card. With fatigue about to start, there was always the risk of a second yellow card.

Flick also brought in Javi Martinez to fire him and also provide defensive stability, as Davies was expected to do loitering runs in the last third from the left side, which could make room at the rear. The Spaniard ended up scoring Bayern’s winning goal.

UEFA Super Cup 2020 bayern celebration
Bayern coach celebrates!

The final change was Jerome Boateng for David Alaba. Given that Bayern were leading the game and Alaba had a yellow card, having fresh legs in central defense made sense. Boateng helped the team watch the game. Flick is improving with the management of the game, and the victory over Sevilla was a good example to show his improvement.

Replacement for Thiago Alcantara!?

Despite the victory, Flick will look for a solution to this problem in this season’s Champions League matches. Thiago’s best performances came in the biggest games in Europe last season. Kimmich may have to improve his passing while beating the press, as the club is unlikely to look for a midfielder in the market. It will be interesting to see how Flick overcomes this tactical challenge.

KL Rahul

KL Rahul, one of the most reliable and consistent hitters on the Indian national team and IPL team Kings XI Punjab as well, becomes the captain to record the highest score in an innings. The right-handed hitter entered the team as a test specialist but soon established himself as an all-format player. He may not be part of the test team now, but he is the first-choice wicketkeeper-hitter in limited-overs cricket.

Follow us on Twitter for regular updates and interaction <3

Blooming to become THE BEST

Rahul, who was India’s best hitter on the New Zealand tour, also leads Kings XI Punjab in the 2020 IPL. He is also in contention to take over as captain of India’s T20 after Virat Kohli retires; Here are some of the records he currently holds :

Only Indian to score a century in his ODI debut

18 months after his debut in the test team, KL Rahul had the opportunity to make his ODI debut in the absence of regulars Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. By opening the innings with fellow Karnataka player and KXIP teammate(now), Karun Nair, KL wrote history by becoming the first Indian batsman to score a century in his ODI debut.

Tons of class

Interestingly, KL Rahul hit a six to bring in his century, while India only needed one run to win in 46 balls. The right-handed prodigy went for the big shot and cleared the fence to create history, leading India to a victory in the series opener during the 2016 Zimbabwe tour.

Editors Pick :

Fastest Half Century in IPL

KL Rahul was expected to fetch a large amount in the 2018 IPL auction, but the number of bids he received left fans stunned – he joined Kings XI Punjab for Rs 11 Crore.

Cricket | News | Score | World Cop | Match | Live Streaming | ICC | BCCI

Returning to IPL after missing IPL 2017 due to a shoulder injury, the pressure was on Rahul to get the job done and he did not disappoint as he broke the record for the fastest half-century in IPL history in his first outing for KXIP. The opener reached the 50-run mark in just 14 deliveries, reaching the milestone in the third over. But soon after lost his wicket.

Centurion in all formats for INDIA

In less than a year after Rohit Sharma became the second centurion of all Indian formats, Rahul did the same and joined the elite roster in 2016. The Indian opener scored his first Test 100 against Australia in 2015. A year later, he scored his first ODI hundred on debut against Zimbabwe followed with a T20I century against the West Indies in August 2016. Rahul, so far, has scored five tests 100s, four ODI 100s, and two T20I hundreds.

Two records achieved today!

KL Rahul became the highest scoring Captain in IPL and also the highest score ever (in IPL) by an Indian. This feat comes after back-to-back drop catches from Royal Challengers Bangalore. He was on fine hitting form and never looked tired throughout his innings. He faced 69 deliveries and scored 132 N.O.

Usually, when being promoted as the captain of a side, players feel pressure and underperform in most situations. But it is different here, considering the firepower KL has. He had established himself as a wicket-keeping batsman and is trusted by Virat Kohli in the white-ball format for all good reasons. He is the one for us in the future!!

Oneplus 8T

The OnePlus 8T will be OnePlus’ next major release, announced on October 14. While OnePlus unveils its flagship range of phones every May, around October it introduces an interim update to the original phones, marking them with a ‘T’ after their number. This will usually be an advancement of the existing product but this time it’s even advanced!!

History of ‘T’

OnePlus has released a T-series phone every year since 2016, and we’re interested to see how it manages to improve on the excellent OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Things may be a little different this year now that we have the mid-range OnePlus Nord joining the Series 8 in the company’s lineup, but we’re still waiting for OnePlus to bring us an OnePlus 8T so it can get firmly established as one of the best Android phone manufacturers.

Here’s a first look at the OnePlus 8T
There's no OnePlus 8T Pro this year, which comes in as a bit of surprise :|

Expected specs

According to the specifications we have received from OnLeaks, the OnePlus 8T will feature a 6.55-inch screen with Full HD + resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. This is an update to the OnePlus 8, which features a 90Hz display. In the renders, we can see that the screen is flat and features a perforation cutout in the upper left corner.

According to OnLeaks, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor. A previous report from Android Central had claimed that the OnePlus 8T will feature the Snapdragon 865+ processor, so take it with a pinch of salt. There are two models of 8T that we can confirm as of now, 8GB + 128GB and 12GB + 256GB.

Camera setup

You must have seen something similar like this a month ago, didn’t you? This is probably a look-a-like of Samsung’s Note 20 series’ setup!

The curved rear panel features a redesigned rectangular camera module in the upper left corner, which houses four sensors arranged in an L-shape. An LED flash is also located inside the module. The cameras will include a 48MP main shooter, 16MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP macro sensors, and 2MP portrait. The front camera is likely to be a 32MP sensor, compared to the 16MP cameras on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.

Battery, Charging and OS

The battery will be a hefty 4,500 mAh unit, but the real upgrade will come in the form of 65W Warp Charge. OnePlus has stuck with 30W fast charging on all of its phones for the past few years since the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition if I could recall. The phone will run OxygenOS 11 out of the box, presumably based on Android 11.

Launch date

The phone has already received BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification and is expected to launch on October 14 with Amazon also confirming the same. We don’t have any pricing information, but judging from the spec updates, we can expect it to cost more than the OnePlus 8, which currently starts at Rs 44,999 in India.
