Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger Involved In A Heated Exchange With A Blues Fan After Man City Drubbing
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIn the Premier League title race this season, Manchester City have found a potent challenger in Liverpool who are giving the defending champions a run for their money. Such has been the level of competition between the two Premier League giants that it has made the ongoing season an absolute cracker for the fans. With the tournament nearing a befitting finale, there is no margin for error for City and Liverpool as they chase the top honours. Thus, when the Pep Guardiola side squared off against Chelsea over the weekend, all eyes were on City to keep their title dreams alive. For a team that found themselves chasing Liverpool following their shock loss to Newcastle United earlier, City showed no signs of panic or lacklustre play during their rampaging 6-0 triumph against the Blues at the Etihad. While Sergio Aguero bagged yet another hat-trick of goals, Raheem Sterling scored a brace alongside Illkay Gundogan's strike to cut a sorry figure for Maurizio Sarri's side. © Reuters The Blues conceded four goals in the first 25 minutes and eventually gave away two more by the final whistle to register their worst result since 7-0 drubbing to Nottingham Forest in 1991. It was also their third straight defeat in an away game which further irked the Chelsea faithful. The result undeniably left the visitors red-faced and the travelling fans were clearly not impressed. Owing to their dismal outing, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger approached the stands where the away fans were seated and apologised for their poor show. But, one fan wasn't ready to accept Rudiger's apology. Rudiger staying to apologise to Chelsea fans.

In reply, Rudiger reportedly yelled back at the fan before exchanging heated comments with him. According to Football.London, Rudiger said: "I've come over to say sorry, stand in front of me if you've something to say". The former Roma defender climbed over the top of the barricade to speak to the fan. He then, asked the steward if he could cross the barricade to go and talk to the fan in person, though he was not allowed to do so. Later, the footballer gave his shirt to a young fan before joining back his teammates on the ground as the majority of the fans gave him applause. Following their loss, Chelsea now find themselves languishing at the sixth spot in the table. With the Champions League qualification on the line, their current position in the league has surely got their fans worried. But, the biggest problem at hand appears to be their manager Sarri who is expected to have a crucial conversation with the club's owner Roman Abramovich to discuss his future.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsCricket may seem like one of the most pleasant and polite games the sporting world has to offer. But, once you get down to the crease and listen to what the players say to each other, you'll realise, it isn't. Despite being called the gentleman's game, cricket surely doesn't stop cricketers from taking a dig at their opponents – infamous as sledging. It is a tool used by players to get into the mind of their opponent and weaken their concentration by insulting or verbally intimidating them. And who could do it better than the closest person to the batsman, the wicket-keeper himself? Standing right behind the batsman, a wicket-keeper has all the ways to play with the batsman's head. And if words can kill, they certainly can distract a batsman from playing his natural game. Here are a few instances where wicket-keepers managed to play with the batsman's head: 1. Kiran Moore The 1992 World cup is famous for introducing the concept of coloured jersey's. But other than that, another thing that caught attention at the mega event was the altercation between Pakistan's Javed Miandad and India's Kiran Moore. The former Indian wicket-keeper was stumping and appealing on almost every run, which irked Javed. They both had a brief argument before resuming to their respective positions for the next ball. But, just when the spectators thought that the drama was finished, Javed Miandad came up with a hilarious response to Moore by imitating his way of appealing, that is by jumping all over. 2. MS Dhoni When we talk of wicket-keeping, how can we forget MS Dhoni? Despite being the calmest player on the field, his wit and words can sometimes make you fall off your chair, just because of laughing so hard. The best part about our 'Captain Cool' is that he hardly talks to the batsman, but still manages to affect his mind by talking 'about him' to the bowler. That's the best trick that anyone can apply. Making the batsman so conscious about his own shots that he ends up committing a mistake. 3. Rishabh Pant Over the years, the clashes between India and Australia have provided some really exciting games to the spectators. The rivalry between the two cricket powerhouses is what makes theirs a thrilling spectacle. And, India's recent tour Down Under was no different. Filled with exciting moments, the Test series brought the duel between Rishabh Pant and Tim Paine to the fore. While Paine called him a 'babysitter', Pant, too, gave the Aussie Test captain a piece of his mind. Indian captain Virat Kohli, too, joined in with the 'Temporary Captain' jibe. For a 21-year-old who was playing in his first tour of Australia, it was quite ballsy on Pant's part to sledge the opposition captain. 4. Mark Boucher Do you remember the Test between South Africa and Zimbabwe in 2005? Actually, why would you? There is literally no reason to remember that game as the Proteas, expectedly, won the encounter by an innings, despite three of their four fast bowlers going off injured on Day 1. But, during the one-sided contest, Mark Boucher revealed his funny side as he took aim at Tatenda Taibu in what eventually turned out to be a hilarious banter. He began by telling Taibu that he only looks to score runs when there is one seam bowler in the field. And, when Taibu played a drive towards short cover, the South African wicket-keeper once again teased the Zimbabwean by saying: "That's a big shot Tatenda." Another side of Mark Boucher came to the fore that day.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsEven though the couple continues to remain tight-lipped about it, the entire nation has already begun the pre-celebrations for the upcoming wedding of Bollywood's most beloved duo, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. © Twitter While they haven't really said it in words, Ranveer's reaction is confirmation enough for the most of us. How so, you ask? Well, we have a certain Tanmay Bhat to thank. © Twitter Tanmay called up Ranveer during an Instagram live on Sunday. The two men laughed and joked and it was then, when Tanmay asked him the question the whole nation has been waiting to know.

After a few minutes into the conversation, Tanmay asked, “I have one question, shaadi kab hai (when is the wedding)? To which Ranveer replied, “Ae chalna! What are you? F*cking Pinkvilla?.” Ranveer's reply reduced both of them to a laughing mess.

However, the actress didn't quite appreciate the question being asked and said, “I am certainly not answering this question...it's an extremely insensitive question to ask at an event like this.” The rumours of the two getting hitched began in full-blown proportion after Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's wedding. Reports now suggest that the two will say their vows on November 20 in an intimate ceremony at Italy's Lake Como. © Twitter It is also being said that a grand pooja will be organised before the marriage in Bangalore, and the couple will later throw a splendid reception in Mumbai for their B-town buddies.
