Xhaka Nothing is finished yet

first_imgArsenal’s Grant Xhaka has admitted that is “unbelievable” that 10-man Atletico Madrid managed to escape with a 1-1 draw against them, but he remains certain that “nothing is finished” yetThe Swiss midfielder started for the Gunners in what was Arsene Wenger’s final European home match in the first leg of their semi-final tie against the Spanish side.Due to Sime Vrsaljko’s 10th-minute dismissal, Arsenal dominated the game and looked set to take a lead to Madrid next week when Alexandre Lacazette headed them in front.But Antoine Griezmann then took advantage of some poor defensive work to score a vital away goal.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“I think we played a great match… Atletico had one shot on our goal and scored. It’s unbelievable because we didn’t want that today, we wanted to have a good result at home. But it’s 1-1 and now we must focus on next week.” Xhaka told the club website.The 25-year-old feels that Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak proved to be crucial in keeping his side in the game.“No, I don’t think so. We had a lot of chances. We were a bit unlucky with the amazing match of the goalkeeper of Atletico. A 1-1 draw isn’t the result we wanted but nothing is finished,” analysed Xhaka.On the return leg, he added: “We know we must score one goal. We must play like we did today, we must focus for over 90 minutes because you can see it’s always dangerous against Atletico.”last_img read more

Chelsea close to stunning double scoop for coach player

first_imgChelsea look set to pinch Napoli midfielder Jorginho from rivals Manchester City this summer, claims Gianluca Di MarzioWhile it has been City who were expected to sign the Italy international following long talks with Napoli since the end of last season, they have struggled to agree on a final transfer fee with the Serie A club.City boss Pep Guardiola had hoped to have Jorginho signed in time for the start of pre-season with the rest of the club’s non-World Cup players for this week, but it appears that he will now miss out on his top transfer target altogether.The Catalan coach has only ever been interested in signing new players completely committed to joining his club, which is why he elected to allow Alexis Sanchez to join City’s locals rivals Manchester United in January.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.In light of this, Chelsea have now leapfrogged City in the race for Jorginho and view him as the perfect compromise with Napoli.The Blues are hoping that by paying more for Jorginho, they can convince the Italian club to part with former head coach Maurizio Sarri after refusing to pay a huge compensation bill for his release from his contract.While City had only been willing to splash out on £45m for Jorginho, Chelsea are ready to spend up to £57m.last_img read more

Oh and he needs Ronaldinho playing with him’.I hope you lot are going to message me every time you see him stood on the halfway line whilst your team are being attacked !

Hurricane Maria devastates Dominica

first_img Former PNP Election candidate and businessman calls for swifter reconstruction for Capital, Grand Turk FortisTCI announces bid to hike electricity bills, cites record $42m response to hurricanes as destabilizing Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you New, stringent posture on illegal construction makes fines, personal demolition and possible deportation legal says PDM Minister, law now passed Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppDominica, September 19th, 2017 – Roseau – Devastation has hit the Caribbean region once again as Dominica became the newest victim to be caught in another hurricane’s wrought. At 9.15pm last night, Hurricane Maria, now a category 5 Hurricane, made its official landfall in Dominica. Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, via a Facebook post said, “We have lost all that money can buy.”According to the national hurricane center, Hurricane Maria is moving with winds at 160mph in a West Northwest direction. Strangely enough, the hurricane took its time through Dominica moving at a slow speed of only 9miles per hour. Official reports revealed that the eye of the storm passed over Dominica last night and has since caused widespread damage.Magnetic Media also understands that almost all the roofs have been swept off buildings, the island’s hospital, Princess Margaret hospital, has been destroyed and radio stations stopped broadcasting when the hurricane hit.Prime Minister Skerrit also revealed that he too had to be rescued from his own home as his roof was blown away and his house had been flooded. He said he feared the worst and begged countries for immediate help. He added, “My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.”Hurricane Maria has since skirted through islands such as Guadeloupe, Montserrat and St Kitts & Nevis before devastating Dominica. The national hurricane center predicts that it will hit the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico next. Like, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria is expected to grow to winds 180mph or higher.As a result, hurricane relief efforts in the British Virgin Islands, who were recently hit by Hurricane Irma, had to be stopped as a curfew is now in effect in preparation for Hurricane Maria. Foreign officials are also warning against persons traveling to islands such as the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and the Turks and Caicos as they are all vulnerable to the effects of Hurricane Maria. If Hurricane Maria remains a category 5 Hurricane, this will be the biggest storm to hit Puerto Rico in almost a century.Hurricane Maria quickly grew from a tropical storm last Sunday evening to a now category 5 storm as of Monday – less than24 hours – and is expected to remain a category 5 storm throughout the week.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher Related Items:#HurricaneMaria, #magneticmedianews, Dominicalast_img read more

Critics of the process want to confront the finalists on these concerns and they want to know the identity of the panel members.“If they are members of the community or not, and having that open process everybody can see and know that there’s real transparency, you know it leaves us in the dark, and therefore we can’t trust the process,” said Cornelius Bowser of Alliance San Diego.The Mayor’s Office said naming the panelists would open the process up to lobbying by special interest groups.There have been several community forums for public input and an online survey. But again, these are advisory. The process follows the city charter, the mayor appoints a chief with approval from the council. Councilmember Chris Cate said calling it a secret panel is unfortunate.“What I do appreciate though is that the city and the mayor’s office is gonna be holding community hearings to hear feedback, the online survey will allow people to provide feedback,” said Chris Cate back in October of last year.Becky Hunt of one of those critics.“I would like to see one that there is no more racial profiling. That bothers me,” Hunt said.Tony Thomas suggests the ultimate public input is a vote of the people.“There are certain things that they don’t let us vote on,” Thomas said.In his state of the city address, Mayor Faulconer spent a few minutes on the city’s new contract with the cops to keep the department competitive in recruiting and retaining officers.Mayor Faulconer didn’t mention the controversy over the search for a new chief except to say, “Our next police chief will help to keep our city one of the safest cities in the nation.”The process has three stages: The selection of the 24-panel members, reducing the candidates to three and the mayor interviewing the three finalists. The process outlined by the mayor’s office says they are in phase three. Search for San Diego Police Department’s next police chieflast_img read more

ASA Calls on House to Bring Unified Farm Bill Back to Floor

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) joined with more than 530 agriculture, conservation, nutrition, rural development, finance, forestry, energy and crop insurance organizations today in a letter urging House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013 back to the House floor for a vote as soon as possible. In the letter, ASA and its fellow organizations noted the benefits of a unified farm bill and cautioned that nutrition and farm program bills may fail to pass as standalone bills. ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss., issued the following statement on the effort:“In our nation’s capital, where so many efforts are poisoned by party-line bickering, the farm bill has long been a resoundingly bipartisan symbol of both parties’ ability to come together to pass legislation that benefits all Americans. The farm bill supports our farmers and ranchers, and rural Americans; but it also helps our friends and neighbors in urban and suburban communities as well. That responsibility—to provide for all Americans—is one that farmers take seriously. We are proud to stand alongside such a wide range of organizations to call on the House to recommit to passing a single, unified farm bill this month.”For a full transcript of the letter, please click here.last_img read more
