The statistics show we could have had a better result, but it is what it is. We need to accept that.”I think now we can get a better result at Stamford Bridge.”We have more chance in front of our fans. We will need them.

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)LSU should be one of the more intriguing programs during the 2015-16 college basketball season, thanks in large part to the presence of freshman forward Ben Simmons, the nation’s No. 1 recruit. Simmons and his teammates are hard at work in fall conditioning right now before practice opens up in a couple of weeks. This morning, Simmons posted video on Instagram showing himself and LSU guard Keith Hornsby pushing an SUV as part of a workout. Getting that work in this morning @khornz04A video posted by Ben Simmons (@benjaminsimmons25) on Sep 23, 2015 at 5:25am PDT Shout-out to whoever is letting the players use their SUV as workout equipment. That’s an interesting decision.last_img read more

Joey Bosa looking to build on successful 2014 season

Instead, the coaches have had him on the side working on non-contact drills for much of the spring, but he said that work is still helping him build on his sophomore success.OSU defensive line coach Larry Johnson said Bosa’s work on the side still encompasses everything the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native needs in order to improve, which includes pass-rushing drills and video work. Johnson added that Bosa wouldn’t have it another way, because getting better is all he wants.“He wants to be a great player, and great players find a way to improve,” Johnson said.Bosa finished his sophomore season with 55 total tackles, 21 of which were for a loss, and 13.5 sacks. He also tallied four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and four additional quarterback hits.But regardless of individual numbers, Bosa said he’s not close to a finished product.“I can’t really pick one spot of my game that I could get better at, because I think I can improve every part of my game,” he said. “And that’s the plan, not just working at one thing but just getting better at every aspect of the game.”Even as he works to improve as an individual, Bosa’s personal success isn’t the top priority. He’s projected as a likely first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft should he decide to leave OSU early, but Bosa said the goal is still to help the Buckeyes repeat their title run.“I just want this team to be remembered as something great,” he said. “We definitely will for last year, but new team, new year, we’re trying to repeat, obviously.”Now with spring practice winding down ahead of OSU’s Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, Bosa said he can control his own destiny when it comes to improving his game.“I feel like if I go out and work every day, everything will fall in place,” he said. Some might argue that everything already fell in place for Bosa when he was named a consensus first-team All-American last season, which could lead to complacency.Former Buckeye Michael Bennett said last season that he was hesitant in early games because of a fear of injury before turning it on down the stretch. But Johnson said he’s not worried about Bosa’s motivation with the NFL on the horizon.“He wants to be great. Great players don’t shut down, great players go forward,” Johnson said.Amid the change in Bosa’s hunt for a second national title as a collegiate athlete, at least one thing will stay the same if he gets a sack against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 when the Buckeyes are set to open their 2015 season in Blacksburg, Va.The long hair might be gone, but Bosa said his “shrug” celebration isn’t going anywhere just yet.“It’s gotta return, right?” he said. “At least one more year.” read more

The commodity markets regulator said that the business fell in almost all commodities — agriculture, bullion, metals and energy on the exchanges platform. Experts attributed the fall in business mainly to higher transaction costs especially after the imposition of commodity transaction tax (CTT) from last year onwards. The turnover from bullion fell by over 62 per cent to Rs 12.13 lakh crore in the April-October period of the 2014-15 fiscal, from Rs 32.17 lakh crore in the year-ago.Similarly, the business from energy items declined by over 53 per cent to Rs 8.16 lakh crore from Rs 17.48 lakh crore, the turnover from metals declined by 43 per cent to Rs 7.51 lakh crore from Rs 13.11 crore in the review period.The turnover from agricultural commodities too fell by 24 per cent to Rs 6.70 lakh crore in the April-October period of this year, as against Rs 8.82 lakh crore a year ago.
