Bailly, Ramos, Terry and Jose Mourinho’s best ever centre-backs ranked

first_img 5. Sergio Ramos – Ramos remains one of Europe’s greatest defenders, and he benefited greatly from playing under Mourinho for three seasons – even if their relationship did sour in the Portuguese’s last season in Madrid. Though he played right-back for much of Mourinho’s debut season at Real, he featured prominently in the heart of the defence when they won La Liga in 2011/12. 10 2. Ricardo Carvalho – One half of arguably the Premier League’s greatest ever centre-back partnership, Carvalho played under Mourinho for three different clubs. He built his reputation in 2003/04 as Porto won the Champions League, then established himself as one of the best in the world with Chelsea – following Mourinho to Stamford Bridge. He stayed in London until 2010, then linked up with his compatriot for the third time at Real Madrid. His debut season was excellent, though injuries started to affect him and limited his gametime in the following years. He will go down as one of the best defenders of his generation, and would be Mourinho’s best ever where it not for the man he played alongside at Stamford Bridge. 10 Jose Mourinho has completed his first signing of the summer, with Victor Lindelof’s move to Manchester United finally confirmed.It is hardly surprising his first move in the transfer market was to bring in a centre-back, as he looks to return the Red Devils to the pinnacle of English and European football.Throughout his career Mourinho has helped develop some of the best defenders in the European game, and Lindelof is sure to become exceptional under the Portuguese coach’s guidance.But just who is the best defender to have played under Mourinho? talkSPORT have taken a look back at his career, and rank Mourinho’s 10 best ever centre-backs.You can see the top 10 by clicking the right arrow, above… 9. Raphael Varane – Like the aforementioned Bailly, Real Madrid’s Varane is considered one of Europe’s best defenders despite his youth. It was Mourinho who took him to the Bernabeu from Lens in 2011, and offered him the chance to impress in the first-team. He only played 15 times in his debut season, but became a consistent starter in his second year – making 33 appearances. However, Mourinho departed that summer, and the lack of time Varane spent under his tutorship is the reason he ranks so low. 10 3. Lucio – Brazil international Lucio had enjoyed a glorious nine-season stay in Germany before signing for Inter in 2009. Once he started playing, it was clear why Mourinho went out to sign him. Despite playing just one season under the Portuguese, Lucio helped Inter win the treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League. His performances were deservedly praised, and it is not far-fetched to presume Inter, if they hadn’t signed Lucio, would not have won Europe’s premier competition. 10. Eric Bailly – click the right arrow to see Jose Mourinho’s best centre-backs ranked – Give it a few more years, and Bailly is sure to be shooting to the top of this list. The young Ivorian arrived at Manchester United last summer and has already established himself as one of the best centre-backs in Europe. His performances have already made his £30m fee seem like a bargain, and under Mourinho Bailly is only going to get better and better as he ages. 10 10 10 4. Pepe – Pepe was a fine defender when he first signed for Real in 2007, but it was when he was joined in Madrid by Mourinho and fellow international Ricardo Carvalho that he developed into a world class centre-back. At times he played in a defensive midfield role, but his best performances came in the heart of defence. With his uncompromising style of play, Pepe was the archetypal Mourinho defender – though his occasionally dirty tactics have really reduced his reputation. 6. Walter Samuel – Due to injuries, Samuel hardly played in the two seasons before Mourinho became Inter Milan manager. But when he started training after surgery in October 2008 it was clear the Portuguese had big plans for him. In fact, he became a vital player for Inter, and was one half of their great defence which led the club to the treble in 2009/10. Like others on this list, Samuel excelled because Mourinho built the team around his strengths – and the Argentine paid back the faith shown in him. 10 8. Ivan Cordoba – Although he had a fractious relationship with Mourinho, Cordoba proved a valuable servant for Inter Milan in the Portuguese’s two seasons at the San Siro. Already a club legend when Mourinho arrived, Cordoba remained a consistent starter, making over 60 appearances as he helped Inter win two league titles, the Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa and the Champions League. He started to lose his place in 2009/10, but remained an important character around the club. 10 10 10 7. Gary Cahill – Cahill is certainly not the most naturally talented footballer, but he excelled under Mourinho during the Portuguese’s second spell in charge of Chelsea. He was a guaranteed starter during Mourinho’s two-and-a-bit seasons at Stamford Bridge, and formed a superb partnership with John Terry. He was named in the PFA Team of the Year in both 2014 and 2015, and remains one of the better centre-backs in the league thanks to Mourinho’s coaching. 1. John Terry – Terry is regarded as one of the finest centre-backs of the Premier League era, and will be remembered as one of England’s best ever defenders. He was highly-rated before Mourinho arrived in London, but developed into a world class defender under his guidance. By 2012 it appeared Terry was in decline, but Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge the following year and built his new-look team around him. Chelsea won the Premier League for the fourth time in 2014/15, with Terry playing every minute, and once again regarded as the best centre-back in English football.last_img read more

Evolutionists Endorse Sin

first_imgWhen evolution is left out of the research, sometimes the findings coincide with traditional values.  Science Daily reported on an economist who found a shocking thing: money doesn’t buy happiness.  “Across a worldwide sample of 37 countries, rich and poor, ex-Communist and capitalist, Richard Easterlin and his co-authors shows strikingly consistent results: over the long term, a sense of well-being within a country does not go up with income.”  But did we need science to tell us that?Darwinism is not just superfluous; it is downright evil.  By turning good and evil into amoral illusions, and by making people pawns of a mythical evolutionary past, evolutionists open the door to a flood of vices.  Some of Darwin’s contemporaries understood the danger his theory posed.  Adam Sedgwick, his geology professor, wrote:There is a moral or metaphysical part of nature as well as a physical.  A man who denies this is deep in the mire of folly.  ’Tis the crown and glory of organic science that it does through final cause, link material and moral; and yet does not allow us to mingle them in our first conception of laws, and our classification of such laws, whether we consider one side of nature or the other.  You have ignored this link; and, if I do not mistake your meaning, you have done your best in one or two pregnant cases to break it.  Were it possible (which, thank God, it is not) to break it, humanity, in my mind, would suffer a damage that might brutalize it, and sink the human race into a lower grade of degradation than any into which it has fallen since its written records tell us of its history.Two world wars and a host of secular totalitarian dictatorships in the 20th century are the result.  See What Hath Darwin Wrought? as described in the 09/27/2010.  After all the social wreckage they have caused, Darwinists remain unrepentant, as the above articles show, still committed to preaching amoral ideas from the mire of folly.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Crime pays in Darwinism, apparently.  Some biologists find good in what most of us find evil.  After all, in Darwinism, evil is only an illusion.Corruption:  Victims of corruption may have a different outlook on what Science Daily told its readers:Francisco �beda, an evolutionary biology professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Edgar Du��ez of Harvard University found that power and corruption may play a role in maintaining overall societal cooperation.    A report of their research is published in the journal Evolution.Gossip:  In evolution, gossip is no longer a sin.  In the wake of WikiLeaks, Live Science asked, “Is Gossip Good?”  The answer is found in Darwinian theory:Some researchers have argued that the tendency toward jawing about our neighbors is rooted in our evolutionary past.  In his book “Grooming, Gossip, and the Evolution of Language,” (Harvard University Press, 1998), Oxford anthropologist Robin Dunbar argues that gossip and language evolved as primate groups got too large to bond by grooming.  In other words, instead of picking lice off each other, humans buy “US Weekly.”last_img read more

Social assistance still crucial: Gordhan

first_img22 February 2012 While South Africa works to find ways of achieving job-creating economic growth, the country continues to spend on cushioning the poor and unemployed, with social assistance spending projected to rise from R111.2-billion in 2012/12 to R129-billion in 2015. The increase will cater for an expected rise in the number of social grant beneficiaries, from 15.6-million this year to 16.8-million in three years. More than 10-million of these are children. Tabling this year’s Budget in Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said expenditure on social grants would grow from R105-billion in the current financial year to R122-billion in the next three years. As from April, old age pensioners will get R1 200, while foster care grants increase by R30 to R770 and child support grants to R280. Gordhan suggested that the increases might need to be reassessed if inflation continued to rise.‘Crucial to overcoming our legacy’ Earlier in the day, Gordhan told reporters in Cape Town that social assistance remained crucial in ensuring that the poor were cushioned from the effects of poverty, arising mainly from the country’s high employment rate. “Investment in our people is something that is very crucial to us in overcoming our legacy,” Gordhan said. “Without these measures and the support given to our people, the level of poverty and inequality would be much worse, and South Africa would find its self in even a worse situation.” However, while the government had expanded social assistance to households over the past decade, employment and economic growth had to be the main economic drivers of income growth and poverty reduction, Gordhan said. South Africa’s social assistance expenditure increased at an average annual rate of 11% between 2008 and this year. During the same period, there was an 11.4% reduction in the number of disability grant beneficiaries, with officials attributing this to an improved assessment process.Social spending as % of GDP to decline from 2015 But the government says that, despite the rapid growth in the number of social grant beneficiaries in recent years, spending on grants may decline from 3.5% to 3.2% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2015. This is because there are no major grant increases planned for the next three years, and also because economic growth is expected to outpace growth in the number of recipients. A green paper, to be published this year, will propose major social security reforms for the country. These will include a recommendation that the present fragmented arrangements be replaced by an integrated contributory social security system that includes provision for a basic retirement pension and shared death, disability and unemployment insurance for all workers.Savings, retirement reforms up for discussion Meanwhile, Gordhan said a series of discussion papers would be released this year focusing on promoting household savings and reforming the country’s retirement industry. “Consultation with the industry, employers and trade unions will take place on these reforms,” he said. Among the issues up for discussion is improved governance over pension funds, including measures to eliminate corruption and fraud. The main proposal is to establish a mandatory statutory fund to provide pensions, life insurance and disability benefits. In the absence of such a fund, the government says, a large number of occupational and voluntary schemes have been established, but these fail to protect a majority of workers. “The proposed national social security fund will be based on the principle of solidarity, risk will be shared across the workforce, and the state will stand behind the fund,” Gordhan said.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Brighton boss Potter admits Mooy red card helped Aston Villaby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrighton boss Graham Potter says Aaron Mooy’s red card was a major factor in his side’s cruel defeat at Aston Villa.But he added he was proud of their efforts and performance in a 2-1 reverse. Mooy saw red when Albion led through an Adam Webster header and Jack Grealish then levelled in first-half added time.Albion head coach Potter said: “It’s a painful one, that is for sure. They gave everything and, when it happens in that manner, with the last kick, it is particularly heart-wrenching for the players.“In the context of the game, the sending-off has a big influence.“Until that, we were the better team, controlled the game and were deservedly 1-0 up.“Then the sending-off means the crowd get involved and Villa Park was lively today and got behind the team.” last_img read more

If you have ever wanted to get paid to lie in bed

first_imgIf you have ever wanted to get paid to lie in bed, then this job is for you: NASA, the European Space Agency and the German Aerospace Center are offering $18,500 for people to lie in bed for two months. The job is based in Cologne, Germany, and it’s part of a study designed to better understand how the body adapts to weightlessness. The agencies are currently looking for people who are female, between the ages of 24 and 55 and who speak German. The official name of the study is Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study. But there’s a catch. Those chosen for the job will have to stay in bed 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 60 straight days. That means no getting up for bathroom breaks, bathing or meals. And the money, well, it comes out to just shy of $13 an hour.Jennifer Ngo-Anh with the European Space Agency says she doesn’t believe that will deter everyone from participating.”A lot of people are intrigued about the idea of contributing to advance knowledge that helps us to really have humans live and work in space for extended periods of time,” Ngo-Anh says. Besides lying in bed for 60 days, there are other days for orientation, rest and rehabilitation at both ends of the study. The total time period someone has to be available for the study is 89 days, plus several follow up examinations in the years after the study. People are already participating in phase one of the study and the researchers are now looking for candidates for phase two. But before you apply, be warned: For the study, volunteers will have to lie in bed with their heads tilted slightly downward. Ngo-Anh says that’s to help recreate conditions of spaceflight. “When volunteers lie in bed with their heads tilted roughly six degrees below the horizontal, then a lot of the effects that spaceflight has on the human body can be simulated or being reproduced,” Ngo-Anh says. “It is not to annoy volunteers, but it is actually to test countermeasures.”Volunteers will also be exposed to artificial gravity to test if it can be a countermeasure to the effects of spaceflight. If the study finds that exposure has a positive effect, it may be used as an official countermeasure for future spaceflight missions.If volunteers are hoping to get some exercise while on the job, fret not. Ngo-Anh says her organization has tested everything from jumping in bed to cycling in bed, plus other contraptions that can be mounted to the beds. So, if you still think this job is for you, sign up while you still can. Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org.last_img read more
