The five reasons Neymar will not miss PSG vs Real Madrid

first_imgAlarm bells rang after PSG’s 3-0 win over Marseille, because Neymar Jr left the pitch on a stretcher, in pain. After the initial scare coach Unai Emery calmed his fans down by saying Ney will be back for the game on March 6 which sees PSG host Real Madrid in the UCL last 16 second leg. 26/02/2018 CET Unai Emery wants all his weapons available to mount a comeback after the 3-1 defeat, and he will use the pyschological factor of maintaining the doubts of over Neymar until the last minute. Zinedine Zidane’s plans will be built around whether Neymar starts or not – and PSG know it. Neymar is a star. An extrovert who loves being the focus of everyone’s gaze. That’s one of the reasons he left Barca, to get the No 10 and become the key figure for a team. Planet Football will be watching PSG-Madrid and Neymar wants to battle with Cristiano Ronaldo. Neymar is suffering pain but that is not impossible to solve with numbing injections. It’s not an ideal situation but can help reduce the inflammation and give him more comfort during the game. Emery “optimistic” Neymar will be fit for Real Madrid clash Albert Masnou 2. INJECTIONS PSG and Neymar have the league sewn up, 14 points over Monaco, 16 over Marseille, and have reached the league cup final (March 31, vs Monaco). They are in the quarters of the French Cup – so if they get knocked out of the UCL, their great objective, the Brazilian will have a lot of time to recover before the World Cup in Russia – Neymar’s other big target.

Choice is between a humble, caring man and an unbothered, aloof, uncaring dictator

first_imgMonday’s news headlines revealed stark differences between the main Presidential Candidates for the upcoming elections. One newspaper headline showed one candidate without security, embracing his people, showing them he cared. The same headline showed the other candidate violating citizens’ right to peacefully protest, separated from the citizens by Police barricades manned by heavily-armed Police, as if they were in military battle. One was embraced by citizens; the other was protested and unwelcome.There was the moving picture of the PPP’s Irfaan Ali on Sunday meeting with grieving families on the Corentyne, no security, just him consoling the families. The humble Ali did not separate himself from ordinary citizens by hiding behind heavily armed security. He was as ordinary as the people he was visiting, was one of them. In contrast, there was an “unbothered” David Granger that same Sunday, majestically driving past peaceful protestors, with a large convoy of expensive vehicles, some with heavily-armed security officers, and in the background more than 150 Police officers ensuring peaceful protestors stay far behind Police barricades. Granger, as he has been doing every time he leaves his home, feels he must hide behind well-armed security. He came into Cornelia Ida as their lord and master, King of his Fiefdom, and ordinary citizens had to be kept far away.Irfaan Ali on Sunday did what PPP leaders have been doing for decades, affirming his duty to travel to the Corentyne, showing care and support for the families of fishermen whose bodies floated ashore or who are still missing, presumed dead, after another horrendous pirate attack at sea. He went there with PPP activists to console and let the families know they were not alone as they endured unspeakable agony. Irfaan Ali, during his visit to the grieving families, called on the various government agencies to help these families. At a time when these families need support, the whole Government machinery is shamelessly missing in action. The do-nothing Government always seems two steps behind, always having to be shamed into action. Hopefully, after the pleas for help by the families themselves and by Irfaan Ali on behalf of the families, the relevant authorities will show up.But Granger, in his latest version of “unbothered”, couldn’t care less. It is uncertain he even knows that another pirate attack has murdered innocent, poor Guyanese citizens. He never seems to have a word of empathy for those who endure unspeakable agony. He always seems to be running as far away from those who are enduring tragedies. Even as news of the pirate attack was emerging last week and, even as the bodies began to float ashore last Saturday and into Sunday, Granger was too busy ordering the Police to quash any protest against him. He wanted the whole village of CI to be locked down. With all his might, Granger feared ordinary peaceful citizens.He feared black flags posted up on GPL posts by residents, ordering Police to destroy them. The black flags protested the violation of the Constitution and the assault on democracy. The residents, almost 100% of them, wanted Granger to know he was not welcomed in their community. But they projected their message peacefully. Yet, Granger sent more than 150 heavily-armed Police to keep people far from him. The Police established their perimeter, letting the peaceful protestors know where they can gather and picket. As Granger arrived, the Police pushed peaceful people further away from his sight and, in the process, moved barricades so forcefully several residents were injured. The Police even locked up two of the residents because they deemed them ring leaders. The people’s right to peacefully picket was violated because a dictator feared the peaceful voice of ordinary people.Meanwhile, Mr Ramjattan, who was the Minister of Public Security, has said not a word. He was on TV last Saturday in Berbice, he had nothing to say about the latest pirate attacks. He stands by idly as Granger uses the Police as his private security firm, removing them from their main duty – to keep citizens safe. In the last week, twelve murders and dozens of armed robberies have occurred, but the police are busy intimidating peaceful picketers. Even as the Police’s main duty now becomes stopping peaceful protests and Ramjattan disgracing himself with claims that crime is on the decrease, crime is spiralling out of control.Noel Holder, the former Minister of Agriculture, with direct responsibility for fisher-folks, was nowhere and is still nowhere to be found. No one should hold their breath, he is doing what he is best at – missing in action. But the biggest disgrace belongs to Moses Nagamootoo. The dead and missing fishermen belong to communities he claims he is a “son of the soil”. He will soon go there to beg the people for their votes. But as the families and their neighbours grieve, Moses is totally silent. What Port Mourant and CI demonstrated on Sunday was simple – people have a choice between a humble, caring young man and an aloof, unbothered, uncaring dictator.last_img read more

Muthee delivers Treu warning

first_img0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, February 10- The national rugby sevens team sneaked back to the country Monday morning after underwhelming tours of Las Vegas and Wellington where Paul Treu’s side failed to muster a Main Cup quarters showing despite hopes of a turn-around and a strong squad.Low key homecomings have become the norm since the second leg of the 2013/14 HSBC World Series in Dubai with little to celebrate in contrast to last season where lavish welcoming parties, complete with stretch limousines were rolled out to receive the squad. After five legs of the series, Kenya are still holed in eighth with 47 points, having added 15 to their tally in Las Vegas (seven) and Wellington (eight) where the team lost the Bowl final in the former before winning the same competition in New Zealand last weekend.With murmurs against Treu’s methods gathering pace, Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) in a lengthy statement from chairman, Mwangi Muthee, reiterated support for the South African tactician although he hastened to caution him against the flailing results.“All top teams, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa and England respect Kenya. They never underestimate us and that’s why they always come out stronger and beat us.“On our part, if we do not respect the so called ‘lower teams’ and show them the same as we do the top four, we run into trouble as has been evident too often in the just concluded tour,” Muthee added.“This is a problem the technical bench and the players must solve. In the remaining half of the World Series, everyone must declare war against everybody across the board not just among the top brass,” the KRU boss declared in his welcome message to the team on Monday.The chairman urged seasoned players to step up their game to satisfy rugby enthusiasts in the country who are yet to see desired results.“I call upon our most experienced players; Collins Injera, Humphrey Kayange, captain Andrew Amonde, Biko Adema, Horace Otieno, Oscar Ouma and Patrice Agunda to arise and have a completely new scenario in the rest of the season.“Treu and his technical bench have a lot of work to do, especially in seeing we perfect the basics of play. Sloppiness has no room in the tight matches of the World Series. It is the thin line between winning and losing games,” the Union chief delivered in a damning indictment of the team’s performances.“So far we have not lived to the expectations of our sponsors who have invested so much in us so that we can be the best. We must commit ourselves and guarantee them that we shall pull up our socks and clean up our act for the remaining rounds,” he continued.Treu’s critics point to the extended period it is taking his players to adapt his style of play in the last four HSBC Series rounds in Dubai, Port Elizabeth, Las Vegas and Wellington 7s since the former Blitzbokke tactician took charge in last November.The attacking style he favours seems to be a difficult preposition for his charges as witnessed in Las Vegas and Wellington where the handling and passing of the ball was poor.This saw them suffer 24-12 to Samoa in the opening match of pool D, before losing 24-0 to Australia, to be relegated to the Bowl competition despite thrashing Tonga 40-7.Kenyan all-time try scorer Injera, admitted they are still in the process of catching up with the new coach’s formation.“It is different this year, we just need to keep adapting and ticking the boxes. We will come a long way if we achieve that and that’s why I’m in the team, I still have the strength and speed to do it.”Inconsistency of the squad might have played a major role after his squad was affected by employment and school commitments in Dubai and South Africa legs earlier on.Veteran Kayange, winger Dennis Ombachi and Nakuru RFC’s Ouma, missed the two legs while Amonde was ruled out at the fourth and fifth rounds with a shoulder injury.The chasm compared from last season where they picked 19 points from New Zealand to place second on 56 points is yawning.With time running out in this campaign Treu has the task of ensuring Kenya seal a top four place in the 2014/15 Series to ensure they will feature in the 2016 Rio Olympics.The team heads to a break before converging for the next rounds in Japan and Hong Kong next month with the team likely to welcome injured skipper Amonde to the side. Kenya will once again meet Port Elizabeth and Las Vegas champions South Africa, Argentina and hosts Japan in a tricky Group B. Treu has not beaten his former side in three meetings in the circuit thus far.HSBC SERIES STANDINGS1. New Zealand 22 17 19 19 22 992. South Africa 15 19 22 22 19 973. Fiji 13 22 13 8 17 734.

Barcelona seek reaction to alarming slide

first_img“It is clear we are not in our best moment of the season,” said Barca defender Gerard Pique.“In the world of football perfect seasons don’t exist.“We need to keep going in the two competitions we have still in play.”Barca in particular need a reaction from their star front three of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, who have gone off the boil at the business end of the season.Messi hasn’t netted for five games, whilst Neymar has also failed to score from open play as Barca have won just once in their last five matches.“We need to lift ourselves because we still have two very attractive goals to obtain,” added Barca coach Luis Enrique.However, Barca’s only change from the 11 that started at the Calderon in midweek is likely to come in goal where Claudio Bravo will replace Marc-Andre ter Stegen.Valencia can also approach the game in a much more relaxed state after Alvaro Negredo’s last minute winner against Sevilla last time out moved them nine points clear of the relegation zone in Pako Ayestaran’s first home game in charge since replacing the sacked Gary Neville.The visitors also have revenge in mind having been thrashed 7-0 on their last visit to the Camp Nou during Neville’s reign in February.“Barcelona aren’t the same as when we played against them and, with our strengths, we will try to get a good result,” said defender Jose Luis Gaya.– Favourable run-in –Atletico could even draw level with Barca at the top of the table before kick-off at the Camp Nou as they host relegation threatened Granada at the Vicente Calderon.Diego Simeone’s men have the most favourable run-in with four of their remaining six games at home.However, they still need Barca to drop points in at least two games due to their inferior head-to-head record with the Catalans.Fernando Torres will return to the Atletico line-up after being suspended for the Barcelona return leg after scoring in each of his last three appearances.Real Madrid also booked their place in the last four of the Champions League in midweek thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick to overturn a 2-0 first leg deficit against Wolfsburg.And Zinedine Zidane’s men can close to within one point of Barcelona when they travel across the Spanish capital to face struggling Getafe.Former Argentine international Juan Eduardo Esnaider will take charge of Getafe for the first time as Fran Escriba was sacked on Tuesday after a 12-game winless run saw Los Azulones drop into the relegation zone.“The Real Madrid game is fundamental for us. They will arrive here euphoric fancying their chances in La Liga and the Champions League, but I want to take the game to them,” said Esnaider.At the bottom, Levante realistically have to beat Espanyol on Friday if they are to have any chance of beating the drop.Meanwhile, with Getafe and Granada facing the two Madrid giants and Rayo Vallecano hosting high-fyling Villarreal, Sporting Gijon could climb out of the relegation zone with victory at Las Palmas.Friday (all times GMT)Levante v Espanyol (1830)SaturdayGetafe v Real Madrid (1400), Las Palmas v Sporting Gijon (1615), Eibar v Real Sociedad (1830), Celta Vigo v Real Betis (2005)SundayMalaga v Athletic Bilbao (1000), Sevilla v Deportivo la Coruna (1400), Rayo Vallecano v Villarreal, Atletico Madrid v Granada (both 1615) Barcelona v Valencia (1830)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lionel Messi after Barcelona’s defeat to Atletico Madrid in Champions League.MADRID, April 15 – Barcelona host Valencia on Sunday desperately in need of a win to arrest a slide of three defeats in four games and prevent losing their grip on the La Liga title race.The Catalans still lead Atletico Madrid by three points with six games remaining, but were dumped out of the Champions League by Atletico on Wednesday as their quest to deliver a second consecutive treble was killed off.last_img read more

Fort St. John man acquitted of terrorist charges now fighting extradition

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. — Fort St. John resident Othman Ayed Hamdan, who was acquitted of four terrorism-related charges last Friday in B.C. Supreme Court, is now in a court battle to determine if he will be allowed to stay in Canada.According to The Province, the 35 year-old Hamdan is being investigated by the Canadian Border Services Agency to determine whether or not he should be allowed to stay in the country. Hamdan was originally arrested in Fort St. John in July, 2015 and charged with inciting terrorist acts through posts he allegedly made on social media. He was acquitted of all charges last week.Hamdan, who is a Jordanian citizen, came to Canada from the United States in 2002 when he made a successful refugee claim. He is, according to the CBSA’s Randal Hyland, neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident. Hyland added that the burden of proof to determine whether a person is inadmissible to remain in Canada is lower than the standard used by criminal courts, where guilt of an offence must be proven “beyond a reasonable doubt.”- Advertisement -Hamdan’s detention hearing has been adjourned until next week.Story by The Province: http://theprovince.com/news/crime/acquitted-isis-supporter-fights-to-stay-in-canada/wcm/bb9151f3-a7d3-4bb6-a11b-ce232d3d11eb.last_img read more

Mourinho claims Torres does NOT want to leave Chelsea

first_imgJose Mourinho has revealed Fernando Torres has given him no indication that he wants to leave Chelsea and the Spaniard remains a part of his plans.It has been reported that Torres could be set to leave Chelsea before Monday’s transfer deadline, with Serie A sides AC Milan and Roma both interested.However, Mourinho says Torres has not informed him of his desire to leave and that he requires the 30-year-old to mount a challenge for multiple trophies this season.“What we have clear is that we need three strikers to face the season. He is one of them. I like him as a person. I like him as a player,” said Mourinho.“If he wants to leave it is something he didn’t say to me. At the moment he is our player, nothing more than that.“If he wants to leave I believe it is because he wants to try a new life, a new club, a new league. If he wants to leave I believe it is to try and be happier than he was in the last couple of year.” Fernando Torres in action for Chelsea 1last_img read more

Curtain, undamaged shaft raise hope for six miners

first_img“We have no idea what that sound is, but we are going to know when we get the fourth hole down there,” Murray said. Plans for the location of a fourth borehole, to begin Thursday, had changed because of the “unusual” noise readings, both men said. Murray, who is chief of Murray Energy Corp., the co-owner and operator of the Crandall Canyon Mine, also cautioned: “Don’t read too much into this noise we picked up, but it is a sign of hope.” Still, experts say the chances of finding the men alive are slim. As crews slowly dig a path to the men’s presumed location at the Crandall Canyon Mine, the narrow drill holes sunk deep into the mountain amount to little more than educated guesses. “There are a lot of possibilities,” Stickler said. “We started with logical thinking: `If I were in this situation, what would I do?’ That has guided us in where we look.” The men could be huddled together or spread out anywhere in an underground area the size of several football fields. “There’s always a chance. You have to hang on to that chance. But realistically it is small, quite small,” said J. Davitt McAteer, former head of the MSHA and now vice president of Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia. “You would have to have every single break and divine intervention to successfully extract these guys.” The Aug. 6 cave-in released low-oxygen air from sealed chambers into the working area of the mine. Downward pressure on the walls sent chunks of coal flying like bullets through the shaft. Two holes drilled into the mine have not located the men. The third drill broke through Wednesday into an area where officials say the men may have sought refuge. “We’re going to keep drilling until we find these miners,” Murray said Wednesday. Still, he cautioned that the initial blast inside the mountain may have killed the men instantly. Mining rescues after 10 or more days are not unheard of. In May 2006, two miners were rescued after being trapped for 14 days following a collapse at an Australian mine. In 1968, six miners were rescued after 10 days in West Virginia. The effort to dig out a rubble-filled tunnel was proceeding slowly Wednesday and could last another week to go more than 1,200 feet before reaching the area where the miners were believed to be working. The miners “know damn well we’re doing what we can to get to them, and we’re going to get there – no doubt about it,” Bodee Allred, the mine’s safety manager, said Wednesday.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! HUNTINGTON, Utah – Images from a videocamera lowered Wednesday into the mine where six men were trapped 10 days ago showed an undamaged shaft and a curtain that could mean the men, if they survived the initial blast, found breathable air, the mine’s co-owner said. Rescue officials were reviewing the images, which were the first from a camera lowered into the third borehole drilled into the mountain. The camera picked up no sign of the miners, but showed a hemp ventilation curtain that divides intake air in the mine from the exhaust air. If the miners passed through the ventilation curtain, they would be in a pocket of good air, mine co-owner Bob Murray told The Associated Press late Wednesday. “There was no damage at all. The roof is intact; no ribs have outburst. The floors are in place – it looked just as it did when we mined it,” he said. “If the men went in there, they could be alive.” Earlier Wednesday, some noise was detected by devices monitoring vibrations in the mountain, raising “a very small amount” of hope that the men might be found alive, officials said. The sounds detected by two geophones could be a rock breaking underground or even an animal, said Richard Stickler, chief of the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration. “We saw some indication of noise for a period of about five minutes that we had not seen before,” Stickler said. While the source of the noise wasn’t known, Stickler said it had “created a very small amount of hope and optimism” among the families. There are a total of six geophones on the mountain, all of which picked up measured noise Wednesday morning, some stronger than others, Murry said. The vibrations occurred every 1.5 seconds, in a steady pattern for five minutes, he said. last_img
