first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez: Loans good for meby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez says his loan spells have been good for him.Martinez has returned to the club this season and is currently backup for Bernd Leno.He wrote for arsenal.com: “The reason I went out on loan last year is because I’d been training for six months but had only played two games. I went to Reading and was involved straight away. It was against Bolton on a Tuesday night and I felt as though I performed like I’d been playing week in, week out. I think that showed how professional I was. “It was a challenge for me because I had the choice of Leeds or Reading. One of the teams was competing for promotion and the other was struggling at the time. I weighed it up and chose the harder option because I wanted to show to everyone what I could do and prove the haters wrong. Some fans were still reminding me about that 7-5 game… they forget that I was only 18 at the time. I wanted to go back there and prove that I could do it. “In the last game of the season, the Reading fans were shouting my name and begging me to stay permanently. I can’t tell you how good that felt, but that’s how I want to feel all the time. I know how good I am and how good I can be.” last_img read more

(Photo by Evan Habeeb/Getty Images)With the 2018 college football season having reached its half-way point on the season, some ESPN writers are starting to make their predictions as to how it all ends. However, one writer is looking to distinguish himself from the crowd.ESPN Staff Writer David M. Hale published a piece of “Semi-bold,” “Fairly bold,” and “Really bold” predictions for the final weeks of the season.But it was his “Really bold” predictions for No. 4 Notre Dame (7-0) and No. 6 Michigan (6-1) that might make some waves.Hale believes that Notre Dame will miss out on the College Football Playoffs while Michigan will ultimately get in.As a school without a conference, Notre Dame likely will only need to finish the year undefeated in order to make the College Football Playoffs. Their remaining opponents are Navy, Northwestern, FSU, Syracuse, and USC.Michigan’s schedule will include Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Indiana, and Ohio State. If Michigan win out and beat Ohio State, they would secure a spot in the Big Ten Championship game.Beating Ohio State will be a big ask for Michigan though. The Wolverines have lost six straight to the Buckeyes.last_img read more
