Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier believes the Saints can dream of a Europe again thanks to the return of goalkeeper Fraser Forster.The England international stopper returned from ten months out with a knee injury in January, and has kept four clean sheets in four games since; putting in the performance of his career to seal a 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Tuesday.Ronald Koeman’s side suffered in his absence – They claimed only six league victories this season and earlier in the campaign went on a run of eight defeats in ten games.But Southampton have rekindled their push for Europe since his return, and Koeman branded the goalkeeper ‘magic’ after he made ten saves to thwart a rampant Gunners side at the Emirates Stadium.“Not in one-and-a-half years managing Southampton has a team created what Arsenal created in opportunities today…he was magic tonight,” he said. “He is with the [England] national team and he is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and maybe in Europe.”And speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, St Mary’s hero Le Tissier agreed Forster has made the difference and could well have turned their season around.“We had a very poor run earlier this season, but all of a sudden Fraser Forster comes back in and we get four clean sheets, ten points in four games and everything looks so much different,” he said.“We’ve got West Ham just above us and we will go to within touching distance if we beat them on Saturday. Then we’ve got Swansea, then Chelsea at home and then a massive game against Bournemouth away.“Looking at the fixtures on paper, they’re pretty good over the next few weeks, so we’ll be looking to climb a little bit higher than that hopefully.”Asked if Saints can push for Europe, he added: “I don’t see why not. Anything is possible this season, it’s just been incredible, Leicester have thrown it all wide open and it really is the most fascinating season in the Premier League’s history since 1992 when it started.”
Alex Iwobi was at fault for PSG’s equalising goal Arsenal’s chances of topping their Champions League group were dealt a massive blow on Wednesday night as they were held to a 2-2 draw by PSG.The result, which means the Ligue 1 outfit are likely to secure first place in Group A on the final matchday, was probably the fair one, with both teams matching up well against one another.It was the visitors who opened the scoring, Edinson Cavani converting, before Olivier Giroud’s penalty and Marco Verratti’s own goal put the Gunners in front.However, PSG pulled level heading into the final 10 minutes of the game, Lucas Moura’s header being deflected into his own net by Alex Iwobi.Iwobi was immediately substituted out of the game by Arsene Wenger, with his feeble defensive work capping off a dreadful showing by the 20-year-old.After an excellent breakthrough campaign last season, Iwobi has consistently struggled for form this term, and fans were not pleased with his showing against the French champions.You can see some of the best reaction to his performance below… 1

Many happy Australians, whether locally indigenous or immigrants from far-off jungles like England, understand their land to be a true wilderness as well as a civilization. The size of their country is much larger than even California, but their population is but 20 million or so to 34 million in this state. This leaves a lot of room in Irwin country for what we often call nature, and perhaps the key point about nature is that in the state of nature, man is not in control. That lack of control propels men to try to tame nature with highways, condo developments and so on. The great Irish playwright and acidic wit Oscar Wilde once scoffed at the idea that nature was “perfect” by arguing, disingenuously, that if nature were so perfect, why did we spend so much time trying to improve it? But nature has an answer to everything, even to the greatest Oscar of all. Whether it’s waking up in Florida to find an alligator doing strokes in the backyard pool, or living in Southern California and having your pet dog taken away by a coyote or a mountain lion, nature will surprise you from time to time and strike back. We should take all such incidents as serious and unmistakable warnings.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! I have long had a special awe for the late Steve Irwin, perhaps in part because I never personally met him. Many of my Australian friends actually didn’t like him much, thought him a national embarrassment, and wished he’d go away before all Americans believed that Aussie dress consisted solely of khakis, their Saturday-night social life devoted to crocodile-wrestling, and the national vocabulary dominated by quaint exclamations like “barbie” and “crikey!” But a more generous view of this international media celebrity from Australia’s outback who became widely know as “The Crocodile Hunter” was there for the taking. Indeed, for many Americans, he seemed a delightfully un-self-reflective human bridge to that part of our souls that gets steam-cleaned out of our lives by the daily press of urbanization. Prime Minister John Howard, with his ear always close to the ground of nonelitist Aussie public opinion, was quick to eulogize the croc hunter as a “passionate environmentalist who cared passionately about Australia.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los AngelesThat was the image we in the U.S. had of the man as well, through the medium of his regular shows on “Animal Planet,” full-length films and various public appearances. Irwin’s khaki image may have been carefully controlled, but his actuality seemed wonderfully unpolished and slightly vulgar, in the sense of being honest and true-to-self. It was his lack of willingness to submit to the uniformly oppressive jacket-and-tie world that may have most upset my polished Australian mates, who work the waxed corridors of power in diplomacy, industry, academia and the media. Visit Sydney or Melbourne and you feel very much at home. But splash around with the rays or crocs in the real countryside and you are pretty much out of your element _ unless you’re a Steve Irwin. Another aspect of Irwin’s public persona, it seemed, was that he seemed perhaps deliberately immature. Taking the plunge seemed at least as important to him as assessing risk and holding back. Many of us, especially urban dwellers, spend lives of quiet desperation, mindlessly stroking our cats that sleep 18 hours a day and offer little in the way of menace, save for the scary moment when the cupboard is bare of canned cat food and the nearest market is boarded up for the night. For Irwin, who died earlier this week, life was not remotely like this at all: It was a carnival of animals – the more the merrier, the more dangerous the better. And it seemed as if nature offered him no dangerous animal to which he did not want to get close; in contrast to the rest of us, where such relationships are delimited by cages, nets, aquarium walls and admission tickets. It was thus fitting, in a ghoulish sort of way, perhaps, that his death was to come from the poisonous lash of a stingray lurking in waters off Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
