Jovic wants a second chance at Madrid

first_imgWithin the current conversations with San Siro the curiosity was reported however it was defined that The financial disaster has the Italian membership tied arms: as we speak it’s extra a want than one thing possible. Jovic’s plan, nonetheless, is to achieve white and for the Bernabéu to create his title, as revealed by his private health coach at AS. Madrid despatched him a message of confidence when he was in Belgrade, however the margin of error is reducing … 18 Based mostly on that, it initiates a reset that this final mishap will delay. I used to be in excessive spirits, after this time with out soccer, to exhibit why he made a title for himself at Eintracht (27 targets and seven assists in 50 appearances) and Madrid had paid 60 million euros for him. His aim now could be to get nicely and as quickly as doable, rush your choices to succeed in the ultimate and most decisive part of the League and, above all, the Champions League, which is scheduled for August. Suitors in ItalyJovic wants one other chance not solely within the the rest of 2019-20, but in addition in 2020-21. He feels that, because of the lack of minutes, he has not been in a position to dock as he would have preferred. He has solely disputed 770 extensively spaced, which locations him as Squad Participant 19 in participation. In them he has contributed 2 targets and a couple of assists, with an intervention common of 1 aim each 192.5 minutes.So He believes that he has not had a actual alternative, which is what he’s after. He intends, at least, to present himself yet another season to have extra time; if not, it could search for a manner out; if he performs extra and doesn’t attain his stage, too. Golf equipment have referred to as him in current months as Naples and Milan. These previous few hours have been very troublesome for Luka Jovic (22 years outdated).

His rehabilitation would require persistence, care and a demanding mini-season in the midst of July, necessities that Jovic is already conscious of. He’s conscious that he has hit all-time low, that his first yr at Madrid has been punctuated by a insecurity in Zidane, who tends to go slowly with younger folks, discreet efficiency, errors and dangerous luck.last_img read more

Oral Tracey: RSPL format works

first_imgIt has been a constant going around in circles in recent years as it relates to the format for the top local football league, now the Red Strip Premier League (RSPL). Four seasons ago, the semi-final and final playoff knockout format was restored after yet another cycle of having the traditional league format, where the champion was the team that accumulated most points at the end of the season. The conventional league format was always the most just and credible way to go. It smacked of injustice and lacking total integrity to have a team accumulating the best record and most points at the end of the regular season, then having one bad game in a concocted semi-final and final knockout game against a team that finished in fourth spot 10 or 15 points adrift the top team, then that fourthplace team could go on to be crowned league champions. There still remains a certain level of innate unfairness in that kind of scenario. This is one of those occasions on which I have been convinced by the unfolding reality to reconsider my previous position. It is a matter of the good of the situation outweighing the bad of the situation. The dynamics of the local football reality make it an unfair comparison to make between our top-flight football in Jamaica and what obtains in the elite leagues of England, Spain and Italy. These leagues have the advantage of huge television deals, more vibrant and richer economies and better infrastructure, which all contribute to better general spectator attendance and a more viable product to market throughout the season. IRRELEVANT, BORING AND USELESS The current format of the RSPL, with the top four teams pooled into a post regular season knockout phase, has worked and continues to work. The level of interest and buzz generated by the approach to the ‘playoffs’, as well as during the current phase, has increased exponentially. There was no disputing the fact that the four top teams in the league, on merit, all made it to the knockout round Montego Bay United, Portmore United, Arnett Gardens and Humble Lion were all rewarded for their consistency and that, of course, helped in the selling of the playoff intrigue and drama. There is also a particular spectacle and almost guaranteed excitement associated with a knockout series that does not exist in the straight league format, where there is always the possibility of one team running from the pack leading by 10 or 15 points, which would render the last three or four games of the season irrelevant, boring and useless. There is no possibility of that happening in a knockout play-to-win scenario. It is also quite instructive that in other regional football jurisdictions such as Mexico, the USA and Costa Rica, and in the majority of the South America countries, it is the post-season knockout format that is used to determine the national league champions. While there can be no real value placed on the unfortunate scenario of the best and most consistent team throughout the season losing a knockout semi-final or final, thus losing the league title, there is some credence to the decision to offer the top performing team at the end of the regular season $1m incentive. All things considered, the format of the RSPL working and is working well. The intensity and interest at this point in the season, as they have been ever since the re introduction of this format, are at an all-time high and I suspect that most, if not all, the previous dissenting voices against this format, have been duly silenced by its success.last_img read more

Region 2 residents sensitised about oil spills

first_imgExxonMobil, in collaboration with oil spill management expert Thomas Tomblin, engaged regional officials along with residents and stakeholder organisations in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) on how to deal with oil spills, as Guyana prepares for petroleum production in 2020.The one-day seminar was held in the Regional Democratic Council’s Boardroom in Anna Regina on Monday.At the seminar, the Essequibo Fishermen Association expressed concerns about the possible destruction of marine life should Guyana experience an oil spill.

Wenger says ‘humility’ his biggest lesson in 21 years at Arsenal

first_imgArsenal’s sixth win from their last seven matches in all competitions saw them close to within six points of league leaders Manchester City heading into the international break, and meant Wenger marked his landmark match with a new record.Brighton are the 45th different Premier League club to be defeated by Arsenal since Wenger arrived at the north London club in 1996, breaking the mark he’d shared with former Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson.This result also gave Arsenal their third win in six days, following Monday’s success against West Bromwich Albion and a Europa League victory away to BATE Borisov on Thursday.Wenger made nine changes to the side that won in Barysaw and, while concerned by some aspects of his team’s play, was happy with the end result at the Emirates Stadium.– ‘Testing week’ –“We got the clean sheet, we got the three points,” he told BT Sport. “Offensively we were in a bit of a doubt, the fluency was sometimes there, sometimes not.Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal celebrates with teammates after scoring the team’s first goal during the English Premier League game against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium in London on October 1, 2017 © AFP / Adrian DENNIS“In the end for us it was a very testing win. For us it was a very testing week, we had two home games, one long away trip in the Europa League. We won the three games and that’s very positive.”Wenger’s early years at the helm of Arsenal yielded three Premier League titles but the Gunners have not been crowned champions of England since 2004.This has led to renewed questioning by some Arsenal fans as to whether Wenger should continue at the helm, especially as the Gunners have dropped out of the Champions League this season.Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke, however, has been rock-solid in his support of the veteran French boss.Asked what was the one thing above all other that he had learnt from his time at Arsenal, Wenger replied: “I would say humility.”This result meant Arsenal have not conceded a goal in four successive Premier League matches following a humiliating 4-0 defeat by Liverpool on August 27.Since then, the Gunners have won three and held champions Chelsea, one of their London rivals, to a goalless draw.“After Liverpool we talked because we can’t play as we did against Liverpool. We lost 4-0, and the team was really poor,” said Monreal, whose goal was his first since 2013. “From there, the team reacted, we are playing more compact.”Meanwhile Brighton manager Chris Hughton added: “It was a spirited performance. I can’t accuse the lads of not giving everything. It is always going to be difficult here, levels of concentration have to be for 90 minutes.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Asked what was the one thing above all others that he had learnt from his time at Arsenal, Wenger replied: “I would say humility.” © AFP/File / Anthony DEVLINLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 1 – Arsene Wenger said “humility” was the biggest lesson he had learnt as Arsenal marked the 21st anniversary of his appointment with a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.Nacho Monreal’s 16th-minute goal gave Arsenal the lead at the Emirates before Alex Iwobi’s second-half strike secured all three points for the Gunnerslast_img read more

Liverpool thrash Huddersfield despite missing penalty

first_img0Shares0000Daniel Sturridge gets Liverpool off the mark by curling a composed effort beyond Huddersfield ‘keeper Jonas Lossl. Photo/DMLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Oct 28 – Liverpool eventually did enough to beat Huddersfield Town 3-0 on Saturday as goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum settled a match that took time to spark into life.The first half was dire -– apart from an impressive Jonas Lossl penalty save — but Anfield awoke in the second period as Liverpool finally made their overwhelming possession pay off. Liverpool took all three goals with aplomb but most of Anfield went home relieved rather than happy as questions remain about Jurgen Klopp’s side and their true Premier League pedigree.Huddersfield went into this match buoyed by their battling 2-1 win over Manchester United last weekend and they looked far more confident than the home side, who were simply woeful in their turgid 4-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.Initially, it appeared that Dejan Lovren and Simon Mignolet had both retained their Liverpool places despite heavy criticism following that defeat but moments before kick-off it was announced Lovren had injured himself in the warm-up and he was replaced by Ragnar Klavan.Philippe Coutinho was also missing with a hip problem which meant Sturridge made a rare start for the Reds.David Wagner -– who is Liverpool manager Klopp’s best friend -– made one change from the Terriers side that defeated United as Rajiv van La Parra came in for Elias Kachunga.Klopp and Wagner’s friendship goes back to 1991 when they played together at Mainz — Klopp is godfather to one of Wagner’s children — but their friendship was abandoned for 90 minutes at Anfield as Huddersfield set about causing another Premier League shock.The first opportunity did not arrive until the 15th minute when a deep James Milner cross was scuffed by Sturridge inside the six-yard box and ended up bouncing over the crossbar.But that was about it and the subdued nature of Anfield reflected the quiet events on the pitch.After 27 minutes, Mohamed Salah forced Lossl into the first save of the match when he tamely hit an effort straight at him as the game stubbornly refused to burst into life.Five minutes before the interval, referee Kevin Friend made a decisive intervention, penalising Tommy Smith for a tug on Firmino in the box and although Salah’s penalty was well struck, Lossl did brilliantly to block the effort down to his left.Jordan Henderson then badly scuffed the rebound as his effort drifted wide and that passage of play perfectly summed up the quality of the first half.Sturridge finally gave the home fans something to cheer after 50 minutes.A long ball forward from Alberto Moreno was clumsily headed to the feet of Sturridge by Smith and the striker did the rest, cleverly lifting over the onrushing Lossl to open the scoring.The finish understandably lifted Liverpool as they finally awoke with Firmino and Milner becoming increasingly influential before Firmino doubled the lead after 58 minutes.His impressive build-up play had won a corner and he was quickest to react to Milner’s delivery, nodding past Lossl at the near post to end Huddersfield’s hopes of getting back into the contest.Liverpool began to look focused and hungry and Wijnaldum fired into the roof of the net to round off the victory.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Man Utd blown off course again at Bournemouth

first_imgInstead, the failings that have characterised their season were back in evidence as a lack of goal threat and one moment of slack defending inflicted a fourth Premier League defeat in 11 games.The visitors had started the brighter as both sides struggled to cope in the howling wind and rain.Daniel James whistled a long-range effort just wide, whilst Anthony Martial saw appeals for a penalty waved away.Bournemouth struck their decisive blow just before the break when King, who started his career in England at United after being recommended to Alex Ferguson by Solskjaer, came back to haunt his former employers.The Norwegian acrobatically lifted the ball beyond Victor Lindelof and bamboozled Aaron Wan-Bissaka before firing past David de Gea.United enjoyed plenty of possession in the second period to try and find a route back into the game, but even with Martial back to partner Marcus Rashford in attack, they lacked a cutting edge.Andreas Pereira tested Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale with a dipping effort from the edge of the area, but it was not until Solskjaer threw on two teenagers in Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams in the final 10 minutes that the visitors really ramped up the pressure.Greenwood came closest to an equaliser when he hit the post with his first touch before Scott McTominay’s shot was too close to Ramsdale, who collected at the second attempt.Bournemouth held out for a third consecutive clean sheet and just their third victory over United in their history to move above the Red Devils into sixth in the Premier League table.0Shares0000(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Joshua King (right) scored the only goal as Bournemouth beat Manchester United 1-0© AFP Glyn KIRKBOURNEMOUTH, United Kingdom, Nov 2 – Manchester United’s mini-revival came to a crashing halt as Josh King’s strike on the stroke of half-time earned Bournemouth a 1-0 win in treacherous weather conditions on England’s south coast.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had not won away from home since March until 10 days ago, but three consecutive wins on the road at Partizan Belgrade, Norwich and Chelsea to book a place in the League Cup quarter-finals in midweek hinted at a turning point for the Norwegian.last_img read more
