Silva denies Malcom interest

first_imgEverton boss Marco Silva says there is no truth to the rumours he wants to sign Barcelona winger Malcom this month.The Premier League side brought in Andre Gomes on loan and Lucas Digne in a £19.5million deal from the Catalans in the previous transfer window, with both players proving sound additions to Silva’s side.Reports have suggested Malcom is the latest Barca fringe player to be targeted by the Toffees, the Brazilian having started only one game in LaLiga since a €42million move from Bordeaux last July.

However, Silva insists there is no substance to the talk around the 21-year-old, telling a news conference: “No, no. Nothing.”Silva made it clear he will not put pressure on Everton to invest in the playing squad this month simply because of a poor run of form, which has seen them win just one of their last eight Premier League games and lose four of their previous five.”We cannot change every week our idea and philosophy as a club if you win two games or you don’t win two games,” he said. “The last result was not good enough for us, but it was a moment and we are capable of changing things for us again and showing our quality. “Not because of that will we change everything in our ideas. Not because of that will I come here and say, ‘we need this, and this, and this, and this’. We know what we can do or not. Let’s see what is possible.”Silva could be prepared to allow James McCarthy and Oumar Niasse to leave, with the players linked with West Brom and Crystal Palace respectively, but there is yet to be any major development in either deal.”I understand the moment. Now is the moment these rumours come to the table. But [there is] nothing new,” he said.”We don’t put more to be loaned or whatever. I want them focused on our squad and to be ready to play.”Until now, the decisions I already take, you know what they are. Even, like you know, the last moments were really busy for us. The time we had between [games] was to prepare for the next.”last_img read more

The Wood & Faulk Camp Stool

first_img The Best History Podcasts for Learning About Everything From Pirates to Presidents It has been brutal winter, but thankfully the season is over and spring is underway. Now that the calendar has turned to April, it’s time to start getting outdoors again. For a lot of us at The Manual, that means planning hiking day trips and overnight camping journeys. And we have the perfect addition to any wilderness excursion you might undertake in the coming months: The Wood & Faulk Official Camp Stool.Wood & Faulk is the design moniker of Matt Pierce a long-time, self-described, “builder, designer and tinkerer.” Established in 2010 and based in Portland, Oregon, Pierce makes a variety of well-crafted products that range from leather dog leashes to half-pint jar sleeves, canvas carpenter bags and denim work aprons.The Camp Stool is a tripod stool with ash hardwood legs and an English bridle leather saddle. It also features a leather loop for wall storage and a leather carrying strap that makes it easy for travel. (You can easily attach it to your camping pack.) At 14 inches wide, 14 inches deep and 20 inches tall, the stool is lightweight and small to haul.The leather saddle currently comes in tan, chestnut (our personal favorite), brown and black. Even those of us in the best shape tend to get winded on that first long hike of the season. The Wood & Faulk Camp Stool is great for taking those much-needed breathers along your trail or for sitting around the campfire with friends and sipping on a little post-hike bourbon.Just because you are in the great outdoors, doesn’t mean that you can’t carry a little comfort and style with you along the way. With Wood & Falk’s Camp Stool, no matter where you travel, you’ll always have a great seat. And, even if you’re not climbing through the Catskills next weekend, the stool looks equally appealing in your loft as it does creekside.You can buy the stool via the Wood & Faulk website or in person at the Home of the Brave,  a pop-up shop located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
