Tuchel explains Neymars best position

first_imgParis Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel will continue to use Neymar as a number 10 and explained why ahead of tonight’s Ligue 1 clash with Stade ReimsThe 26-year-old was moved from the wing to the middle in last Sunday’s 3-1 win at Rennes.It marked a big change for Neymar, who has primarily operated on the left wing since arriving from Barcelona last year.But Tuchel has done this a few times now and explained he intends to continue doing so as it allows Neymar to be more involved in attacking plays.“Of course he likes to be there and we like to have him in the number 10 position because he is involved in every attack, not only from the left,” said Tuchel in a press conference.“He has the chance to be a bit more free and be in the centre of the game and we have the chance to involve him in every attack we make.“If you involve Neymar in your attacks, there’s a high possibility that you create chances.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R.

Sturridge should be in the Three Lions squad Northcroft

first_imgLiverpool striker Daniel Sturridge should have been included in the England squad according to Jonathon Northcroft.Sturridge’s omission from the squad has raised a few eyebrows considering the player’s return to fitness and improved performance this season most recently his stunning equaliser in Liverpool’s draw at Chelsea last weekend.“Daniel Sturridge, in terms of talent, and someone who is in good shape and form – England should be biting the hand off to get Sturridge in there,” Northcroft disclosed to Sky Sports. “I would have him in the team.“I do not understand that one [Sturridge omission], I would actually have him in the team. He is a slightly different player to Harry Kane if you want a No 9 and a No 10. Throwing Raheem Sterling in there, there are some incredible talents.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Considering Daniel Sturridge is in the best moment he has been in for four or five years I think that it is time to get him back in the England squad.“Nathaniel Chalobah is the unusual selection. That is the selection that to me says ‘this is a policy, this is Gareth Southgate’s policy of what have you done for the development sides, if you do well there then you get in the England [senior] squad.“Generally, it has been serving England quite well, but for this one, you also have to reward merit, and it is the Sturridge one that sticks in my throat a bit.”Sturridge would be hoping to impress once again against City today if he’s called upon.last_img read more

Dirty Sergio Ramos adds one more victim to his hitlist

first_imgDuring the first half against Viktoria Plzen, defender Sergio Ramos added one more victim to his hit-list of players that suffer his relentless elbow aggressions.As we have already pointed out before, Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is unhinged and needs to be disciplined from his violent behavior.UEFA and the referee committee needs to start taking notes with this player because he is truly one of the most violent ones in world football, he just keeps going after his markers with those elbows and he keeps repeating himself because no one has taken the necessary measures with his erratic behavior.We had already seen how much damage can Sergio Ramos make when he wants, he took the liberty to injure both Mohamed Salah and Loris Karius during the Champions League final from last season and nobody from UEFA said a single thing.This season in La Liga, Ramos has already hit other opponents and the officials from the Spanish competition also don’t seem to care because he is a Real Madrid player and he obviously gets a pass that players from other clubs don’t.The latest incident has taken place in the Czech Republic during Real Madrid’s 5-0 victory against Viktoria Plzen, Ramos got away with it again and he didn’t even get booked.⚠ ¡Durísimo codazo de #SergioRamos! ⚠y ni amarilla se llevó… pic.twitter.com/1oVfMO4qHB— MedioTiempo (@mediotiempo) November 7, 2018The worst part of this was that unlike the final against Liverpool, Real Madrid didn’t need the dirty football that Sergio Ramos plays when the club is not having their best day.Many might say that this wasn’t intentional, but when a certain action keeps repeating itself, it simply can’t be considered as an accident.Sergio Ramos knows very well what he is doing and where he places his forearm when he tries to protect the ball or get ahead in the position as he struggles with a rival player.It’s all about that nasty habit of always placing his arm in a very dangerous area without thinking about the consequence of his actions, this time there was a victim that unfortunately got a fractured nose and bled all over the grass as soon as he received the nasty hit from Sergio Ramos.Viktoria Plzen defender Milan Havel was the unfortunate soul who suffered Sergio Ramos’ wrath this time, and the Spanish defender acknowledged the incident after the match but he confirmed that he would never go after any player’s livelihood.¡OJO! “¿El CODAZO? Es una ACCIÓN FORTUITA. Nunca voy a HACER DAÑO a un compañero. Le he puesto un MENSAJE a Havel” @SergioRamos en DIRECTO en #ChiringuitoRamos! pic.twitter.com/VRE9StmreQJose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) November 7, 2018“I obviously never go after any of my peers with the intention to hurt them,” said Ramos after the match via Diario AS.“I have spoken with the player actually, I went to the locker room looking for him but he wasn’t there because he was undergoing tests to determine the damage on his nose but I did send messages asking for his well being.”“It’s clear that I did hit him but I never intended to hurt him, the problem is that the nose is very problematic and even I have suffered when it bleeds so much.”“When you have been in a club for so long and you are the Real Madrid and the National Team captain you tend to be under the spotlight. I believe that I’ve managed critics quite well and I will never change my ways.”“I hope I can be in this club for a long time despite a headache that we may cause a lot of people. With the Salah incident, it’s true that sometimes you can be afraid of the consequences of what you do, I really didn’t think about hitting anyone before that problem but it’s very different now.”“The truth is that I won’t change, mainly because I have never played with the intention of hurting any of my peers.”“I have fallen injured many times, I also have broken my nose before, I still remember the nasty tackle I received during the Spain-England match in Real Betis’ stadium and nobody said anything,” he concluded.¿Cuántas agresiones más le van a permitir a Sergio Ramos? ¡¡Esto es una vergüenza!! pic.twitter.com/lzmTU5Nr17— Zona_Blaugrana (@Zona_Blaugrana) November 7, 2018What do you think about Sergio Ramos’ latest violent moment with a rival this Wednesday?

Farm Workers Donate Cash And Supplies To Childrens Home

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 May 2015 – KINGSTON, May 5 (JIS): Cash and supplies worth more than $250,000 have been donated to the Hanbury Children’s Home in Manchester, by Jamaican farm workers employed overseas, through the Ministry of Labour and Social Security.The presentation was made to the home on April 30 by farm workers attached to Gebbers Farm in the state of Washington, in the United States (US).The donation will be used to renovate the home’s dining area and to revitalise its backyard gardening project. Camp Supervisor at Gebbers Farm, Eyon Gayle, told JIS News that the donation to the home, which caters to children up to 18 years old, resulted from the group’s desire to give back to the most vulnerable in Jamaica. “The interest started from our Jamaica 50 celebrations when we were away in the US working in 2012 and we wanted to have our own event, so we planned our own Jamaica Day, cooked and sold Jamaican cuisine. It was decided that the proceeds would be given to charity or some vulnerable group in Jamaica,” he said.Along with the group’s cash donation, the children’s home also received seedlings from the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) and 30 fruit trees from the ‘Trees That Feed’ Foundation, an overseas charity organisation established by a Jamaican.Mr. Gayle said the smile on the children’s faces made the experience memorable and would encourage them to continue their support to their homeland.“To see the smiling children in Manchester was a joy for us and pushes us further to want to contribute. It is good to know that we are making a meaningful contribution and that it will enhance their lives. We just can’t stop at this time,” he said.The farm workers made their first donation of $250,000 to the Golden Age Home in Vineyard Town back in 2013. This amount was matched by their employer who was impressed by the group’s philanthropic venture and donated to the Golden Age Home located in the West Kingston community of Denham Town.Last year, the offices of the Overseas Employment Service Centre on East Street benefitted from the second donation of $250,000 to erect a gazebo. The amount was again matched by the operators of Gebbers Farm and presented to Garland Hall Memorial Children’s Home in St. James. Gebbers Farm has been a participant in the Ministry’s Overseas Agricultural (Farm Work) Programme since 2010. Currently, there are over 500 Jamaican farm workers employed on the farm, engaged in fruit-picking activities.

93 Million allocated for Street Signs and Fire Stations

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, August 28, 2017 – Mandeville – Some $93 million has been earmarked for retrofitting and putting up street signs across the island as well as renovating and repairing fire stations.    The amount to be spent on street signs is $35 million and the allocation for fire stations is $58 million.This was announced by Local Government and Community Development Minister, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, at a town hall meeting on property tax held at Holmwood Technical High School in Christiana, Manchester, on August 23.   The Minister said he is not pleased with the payment of property taxes in Manchester, as the parish was ranked amongst the lowest in compliance across the country over the last three financial years.Mr. McKenzie also noted that Christiana, one of the most important communities in the parish, has also done poorly in property tax collection.    The Minister noted that in 2016/17, only $483 million was collected in property taxes for Manchester, and that of the $1-billion target set for this year, to date there has been a collection of $42 million.Mr. McKenzie explained that Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) has worked out a payment plan to make it easier for people to pay their taxes, including a more comfortable office space that is up and running in Mandeville.   He also noted that the two tax mobiles that have been going around the island to make collections more convenient were in Manchester since August 22.“We are now at the stage where persons who want to make cash payments will be able to do so at the tax mobiles,” Mr. McKenzie said.He reminded the gathering that their taxes cover the provision of street lights and garbage collection, and, come September, Manchester will receive one of the additional garbage trucks that are due to arrive in Jamaica.“By the end of next year, we intend to improve garbage collection by introducing 100 new garbage trucks into the system across the country,” the Minister said.He pointed out that in the last 12 months, the Government spent $500 million from property tax to provide new garbage trucks.  The Minister said that street lights had also been put up in the town of Christiana along the new bypass, and that a programme to install directional signs in communities across Jamaica would begin in the coming months.He noted that some 2,500 young people are currently collecting data in a street light audit, and that information will be used to ensure all communities have street lights, adding that Manchester will get 400 more lights.Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

The club chiefs, Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge were eager to show that no player is bigger than the club.The Poland international hasn’t had the best start to the new season, though he remains the leading scorer for Bayern this season.It seems like Bayern’s decision to reject his request to leave the club against his wishes might backfire.The former Borussia Dortmund striker has assured the fans that he is very happy with life at the Allianz Arena, though.

Zahavi publicly announced that his client wanted to leave the club at the end of last season.

Opening statements heard in controlledsubstance homicide trial

His father also sent him to work for a family business in Baker City, Ore., during the summer of 2011 to isolate him from other users, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Alan Harvey said in his opening statement.Back in Vancouver last August, the 24-year-old obtained heroin from his girlfriend, who purchased it from defendant Jerome Otto and co-defendant Brittany Sonnen, Harvey said.That was the fatal hit, the prosecution contended.Otto, 22, is on trial on a charge of controlled-substance homicide in Clark County Superior Court Judge John Wulle’s courtroom.Harvey gave his opening statement and began calling witnesses Tuesday. He said he plans to call Sonnen, Otto’s girlfriend, also charged in Hurd’s death. Sonnen accepted a plea bargain late Friday in exchange for her testimony at Otto’s trial.Otto’s attorney, Suzan Clark, said she was reserving her opening statement until the state rested.

Each ZIP code has an overweight-or-obese rate of at least 52 percent.The ZIP code with 75.9 percent, the highest rate, encompasses the Ridgefield area. The 98682 ZIP code, which covers the Orchards and Sifton areas, isn’t far behind, with 73.4 percent of residents overweight or obese.The lowest rate, 52.6 percent, is in east Vancouver, roughly south of Mill Plain Boulevard. The data come from an annual survey, the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, performed by the Washington State Department of Health with funding from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention. The survey includes a random sample of hundreds of residents in each ZIP code.“It’s designed to compare counties and states, and when you look at our obesity rates compared to Washington state, they’re about the same,” said Brendon Haggerty with Clark County Public Health. “That’s not necessarily a good thing,” added Dr. Alan Melnick, county health officer.But health officials caution against reading too much into the obesity-by-ZIP-code numbers. The sample size is small, meaning it could fluctuate year-to-year depending on who responded to the survey, Melnick said. In addition, data aren’t available in ZIP codes with too few survey respondents.last_img read more
