For Sam Allardyce, Englands long journey back to respectability in world soccer starts with lightening up and having some fun. Francisco Cervelli Jersey .The national teams new coach has lined up comedians from British television to host a quiz night at Englands training camp. Hes urging players to chill out by playing pool and table-tennis in their downtime. There are photographs and messages on the walls of the national training center, one of which reads: The Journey Begins Here.I havent come here to be miserable, Allardyce said.Miserable just about sums up Englands experiences over the last two years. After a group-stage elimination at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil came the humiliating last-16 loss to tiny Iceland at the European Championship in June.The country that invented football is now something of a joke in the global game because of its implosions every two years at major soccer tournaments. Its widely believed that Englands players have the talent, but are mentally fragile on the big stage -- and thats what Allardyce has set about changing after taking over from Roy Hodgson in July.Big Sam, as he is known, wants to create an environment where his players feel comfortable and relaxed when they report for England duty. Hence the new ideas and the new look at St. Georges Park, a national training center located in a sleepy town in central England and opened in 2012 at a cost of $160 million.The facility itself is fantastic, but there are some times when you can feel like you are stuck here a bit, Allardyce said. Weve walked around saying, `What can we do to make more of an impact on the players?There will be other messages. Its the journey we are on. I just wanted to brighten this place up.The England squad met up Monday for the first time since its embarrassing Euro 2016 exit in Nice two months ago, and Wayne Rooney -- Englands captain -- was asked Tuesday for his initial thoughts on the new coach.You can see hes a relaxed guy, Rooney said, with a laugh.Allardyce is trying his best to make a good early impression. Arriving at St. Georges Park, journalists were handed a typed letter from Allardyce, saying he was looking forward to working with them and to making the nation proud of our football team.The journey starts with Englands opening qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup, against Slovakia on Sunday. But it isnt in qualifiers or friendlies where England is judged, rather in the knockout games in World Cups or European Championships -- where reputations and history is really on the line.A new era doesnt mean a new captain.Rooney will keep the armband under Allardyce, who sees the Manchester United striker as the right choice to lead the team because he is the most senior and respected member of the squad.Rooney said Tuesday he will not play for England beyond the next World Cup, so Russia in 2018 is his last shot at a trophy on the international stage. That is also when Allardyces contract runs to.Im going to try and enjoy these two years, Rooney said, and hopefully I can end my career with England on a high.I started playing football professionally when I was 16, international football when I was 17. So 15 years of international football is a lot of years and, in my eyes, I think that would be the right time to finish.By then, it should also be clear if Allardyces new approach has worked.The difficulty lies in coping with tournament football and trying to find a solution, Allardyce said. But I cant think about that until we get there. Roberto Clemente Jersey . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. Ivan Nova Jersey . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. . -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making. Multigame esports organization Team Liquid announced on Thursday that it has dropped its entire Heroes of the Storm division. The news comes two weeks after Team Liquid failed to qualify to the Heroes Global Championship (HGC) European Pro League Phase 1. Ivan Sportbilly Koturic, Daniel Shad Gonz├ílez and Raoul GerdamHerd Saurbier have entered free agency. Christoph Cris Gowitzke, who was streaming under the Team Liquid brand, has joined HGC EU Phase 1 qualified team Diamond Skin.The HGC European Pro League is part of the new HGC program for 2017 as announced by Blizzard, the games developer. The year is structured around an online Pro League for each of four major regions with guaranteed financial support to participating players. There is also an Open Division to enable relegations, which opens the door for amateur squads and high-tier squads without organizations to join the league. Team Liquid entered all three of the online qualifiers in the European region from November 19 to December 1, but failed to make it past the round of 8, and was thus unable to secure one of six qualified spots in the maiin league. Bill Mazeroski Jersey. The organization vacates the Heroes of the Storm scene following on the footsteps of other major esports organizations, including Cloud9, Natus Vincere and G2 Esports. G2 Esports disbanded its HotS division this past January, and fellow European team NaVi followed in April citing performance reasons. In North America, Cloud9 dissolved its roster in June despite winning an HGC NA Regional Championship a few months prior. Panda Global and Tempo Storm also lost their rosters in the past six months, but they still have interest in the scene.There are still top brands and newcomers in HotS esports, however. Fnatic and Team Dignitas have established themselves as mainstays over the year, while Misfits acquired mYInsanitys roster this past August. Team Naventic started as an esports organization by acquiring bob ross fan club in February; it plans to expand to other esports as well.
