Benzema slows Jovic

first_imgWith the Dominican called off, the question is whether he will bet on Benzema. If you don’t risk, Jovic will be the only option (with Rodrygo’s permission). The Serbian would have the option of claiming (He only has one goal in the League against Leganés). The Hispanic-Dominican seeks to take minutes in what is being his first season in Spain. Benzema’s responsibilityThe greatest weight of the scoring aspect lies with Benzema (he has 16 goals). The Frenchman has scored ten more than his pursuer: Rodrygo (6). Not even the midfielder revolution can beat Karim. Modric, Kroos, Casemiro and Valverde are taking gallons in terms of so many made. Among them they made 13 goals and contribute 26% of the team’s weight in the scoring facet. The only player who was fully available earlier this week was Mariano. Jovic dragged discomfort from an annoying chafing on one foot. Also, Benzema continued to recover from a fibrillar microrroture. But yesterday, the Serbian already trained normally and, in addition, Karim completed a good part of the session with the group. The Frenchman has trained on the list instead of Mariano. Benzema is here. The importance of Karim (makes 32% of Real Madrid goals) is vital. To date, he has played 90.17% of the minutes. Although he returns from his fibrillar microrroture lesion, the Frenchman points to ownership.last_img read more

Gilas routs Taiwan 5

first_imgPhoto from FIBA.BasketballTAIPEI – Laboring under another bum start against an enemy that broke out of the gates hard, Gilas Pilipinas on Friday night got going in the second quarter and showed why it is one of the best teams in the region these days.June Mar Fajardo didn’t show traces of what kind of a shy guy he is on the floor, throwing his weight around when the chips were down for the Filipinos, whom he helped to a 93-71 ripping of Chinese Taipei that put the hosts in danger of missing the second round of the Fiba World Qualifying tournament.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town Jayson Castro scored 15 points, Terrence Romeo also came off the bench to shoot 14 and Andray Blatche redeemed himself from a bad outing the last time against Taipei with 13 that went with 12 rebounds and five assists.Quincy Davis III scored 17 points, Cheng Ju-Lu had 13 and Ying Chun Chen 11 for Taiwan, which got the superb backing from this basketball crazy country that didn’t let up in cheering each of their baskets even during garbage time.The Scores:GILAS PILIPINAS 93 – Fajardo 22, Castro 15, Romeo 14, Blatche 13, Norwood 8, Pogoy 8, Wright 6, Rosario 5, Jalalon 2, Abueva 0, Maliksi 0, Aguilar 0.CHINESE TAIPEI – Davis 17, Cheng 13, Ying 11, Kuan 9, Yi 9, Tsin 7, Wen 3, Cheng 0, Yu 0, Creighton 0.Quarters: 16-19, 44-37, 68-60, 93-71.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Defending champ San Beda trips Benilde, forges Final duel vs Ateneo Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding A huge crowd showed up at Taipei Heping Gym here and rattled the Filipinos early, as Gilas leaned on sheer firepower, cohesiveness and size to overwhelm the Taiwanese in the final three periods, winning with plenty to spare and taking a winning feeling going into an interesting return match with Australia on Monday.Coach Chot Reyes was all praises for his Fighting 12 for this game, which he described as “no quit in this team.” He now focuses his sights on the Aussies, who just lost in upset fashion to Japan, 79-78 in Chiba also Friday, which will make the Taipei-Japan match on Monday a KO match for the third and last Group B slot.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownTeam Philippines improved to 4-1 and is already assured of a berth in the second round, and that loss by the Aussies will make the Monday match at cavernous Philippine Arena one for top-ranking in Group B.“We came to this game not even thinking of Monday,” Reyes said. “Our focus was all on Chinese Taipei and that’s no exaggeration. Now that we are done, I think it (win) will help give us good momentum.” But Reyes is wary of what just happened in Japan.“They dropped a game against Japan, and for sure, they (Aussies) will come out like wounded tigers on Monday,” said Reyes, whose charges lost, 84-68, the first time they clashed early this year.Fajardo came off the bench and fired up the Filipinos a lot, showing emotion early on when he completed a three-point play as Gilas was able to keep the Taiwanese within arm’s length.“He has every right to demand to start (the game),” Reyes said of the reigning four-time PBA MVP. “But for him it doesn’t matter. That’s the culture of this team.”Fajardo scored 22 points in just under 21 minutes and after that, showed his very taciturn side when he greeted Filipino reporters in the press room with: “nahihiya talaga ako dito.”ADVERTISEMENT Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ MOST READ Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan View commentslast_img read more

Arsonists torch 2 Enterprise homes

first_imgAs piracy massacre retaliation deepens…in search of “Pumpkin”Police investigators in the C Division (East Coast Demerara) are now on the hunt for three men who reportedly barged into an Enterprise, ECD house and set it alight on Friday afternoon.The two storey wooden and concrete house owned by 30-year-old Vickram Sookraj was set alight at about 12:30h.It is being reported that three men arrived in a silver car. Two of the men exited the vehicle, entered the yard and asked for the whereabouts of someone named “Pumpkin”.Rajputtie Sookraj, sister of the owner of the house, who was at home with a minor child, said the men approached her and asked for the individual for whom they were looking.She told Guyana Times that she told the men no one by that name lived at that house.The two men then proceeded to walk up the stairs leading to the upper flat of the house and one of them entered.The woman said shortly after, the said man exited the house and returned to the lower flat, telling her “I did just want to make certain that he wasn’t here”, before they both re-entered the vehicle and drove away.Shortly after the men left, smoke was seen emanating from the building. As such, the woman quickly exited the house with the child and the fire service was summoned.When the Guyana Fire Service arrived, they battled the blaze but by the time the fire was contained, the house was already destroyed.According to Rajputtie Sookraj, she would not be able to identify the men and the vehicle if she saw them or it again.“The thing happened so fast, I wouldn’t be able to point them out, but I know that I never saw them before,” the angered woman relayed.This publication spoke to the owner of the house who had just returned from sea to find his house on fire.The visibly distraught man said “I went on the river and not too long I came back and see the house on fire. I went out on the sea for a number of days”.He further related that his wife, along with his baby, were at hospital since Thursday, since the child is unwell.However, Sookraj explained that inspection made by neighbours revealed that the fire started in the middle room in the upper flat of the house.“The fire start in the middle room them seh. Them tell me that three negro bai come and ask for some “Pumpkin” that they think live here but I don’t know anybody named “Pumpkin”, Sookraj posited.The seaman estimated his losses to be in the millions, while noting that both he and his sister had a lot of furniture in their house. Sookraj is calling on the authorities to quickly bring the perpetrators to justice as he and his family are now left homeless.Meanwhile at about 19:00h on Friday evening the same three men struck again in the very street burning another home.Guyana Times was told that the men returned to the community and again enquired about the whereabouts of “Pumpkin.This publication understands that “Pumpkin” is linked to the recent piracy massacre in Suriname. A source close to the investigation told this newspaper that investigators are working on a theory that the search for “Pumpkin” and the torching of the homes are in retaliation over the piracy attack.Investigators up to press time had made no arrest but are continuing their manhunt for the three perpetrators.last_img read more

All Stewart, all the time

first_imgSham, a NASCAR novice, said getting in on the ground floor was part of his attraction to the concept. “This is the tip of the iceberg on how people will watch television 25 years from now,” Sham said. Or perhaps 25 months from now. – From News Services Come Sunday afternoon, Brad Sham will commence calling Tony Stewart’s race at the Daytona 500. While Darrell Waltrip and the rest of the folks at Fox are calling the entire 43-driver field for a national television audience, Sham will be calling Stewart’s race for DirecTV subscribers on Channel 795. At his side will be analyst Ray Dunlap from SPEED Channel. This Tony Stewart channel will have dedicated cameras and microphones to ensure all-Tony, all-the-time coverage. Four other drivers will receive similar treatment.

Suarez hat-trick extends Barca’s La Liga lead

first_img0Shares0000Suarez, Coutinho and Messi were all on song as Barcelona thrashed Girona © AFP / LLUIS GENEMADRID, Spain, Feb 25 – Luis Suarez hit a hat-trick and Philippe Coutinho scored a brilliant first league goal for Barcelona as the La Liga leaders thrashed Girona 6-1 on Saturday to open up a 10-point lead at the top of the table.Lionel Messi continued his return to goalscoring form with a double to reach 30 in all competitions for the season, as Barca extended their advantage over closest title rivals Atletico Madrid, who visit Sevilla on Sunday. Real Madrid remain off the pace in third, despite a comfortable 4-0 victory over Alaves that saw Cristiano Ronaldo net a double and Gareth Bale back on the scoresheet.It was the perfect outing for Barcelona after ninth-placed Girona had taken a shock early lead on their first-ever visit to the Camp Nou, as Coutinho, Suarez, Messi and Ousmane Dembele shone on their first start together.Portu took advantage of hesitation from Barca centre-back Samuel Umtiti to round goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and slot into an empty net to put Girona ahead in La Liga’s newest Catalan derby.The hosts took less than two minutes to get back on level terms, though, as Messi collected the ball in midfield before sending Suarez through to score.Messi’s wizardry put Ernesto Valverde’s side in front on the half-hour mark, after Suarez touched down a long pass from Andres Iniesta for the Argentinian.It looked as though the chance had gone when Messi was forced wide, but the league’s top scorer showed trademark footwork to jink past several defenders before slotting into the bottom corner.The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was running the show, and he doubled the advantage just seven minutes later with a low free-kick under the wall.“It always seems that he has done everything and then suddenly, he surprises us again, as with his free kick. It sounds easy but it is not,” said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.Having gone five games without a goal before his crucial equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Chelsea in the Champions League in midweek, Messi has scored three in two games.Barcelona’s fourth goal came on the stroke of half-time with Girona’s defenders left begging for the interval after Messi’s perfectly-weighted pass found Coutinho to square for Suarez to tap in.The Catalan giants eased off slightly in the second half, but Coutinho got off the mark in the league in style as he cut inside and curled a long-range strike into the far corner.French winger Dembele played his part too late on as he crossed from the left for Suarez to complete a hat-trick.After a slow start to the campaign, the Uruguayan forward has now scored 17 goals in his last 14 league matches.– Selfless Ronaldo –Heads up: Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice as Real down Alaves 4-0 © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUEarlier on Saturday, Real coach Zinedine Zidane hailed Ronaldo’s selflessness after the forward gave up the chance of a hat-trick by allowing Benzema to take a late penalty at the Santiago Bernabeu.Zidane restored Bale to the starting XI to reunite the ‘BBC’ front line of the Welshman, Ronaldo and Benzema.Ronaldo, whose first goal was created by a magnificent Benzema flick, stood aside in the 89th minute to allow the Frenchman to convert only his fourth league goal of the season.“The gesture of Cristiano is very important,” said Zidane. “After the game he played, Karim just needed to score a goal.“He (Ronaldo) had opportunities, he scored twice. After there is this gesture of Cristiano for Karim.“This proves that between them, there is a good atmosphere, a good relationship, and to win and continue what we’re doing, it’s super important.”The reigning champions’ title hopes are all but over, with Real 14 points adrift of Barca, but a run of four straight wins has ended any worries of missing out on a Champions League spot.“Confidence returns from playing these kinds of matches,” added Zidane.“After our match against PSG (3-1 win in Champions League), we’ve been doing much better, maybe there was a missing part or something like that.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

A team of 11 players with 12 Champions League medals Ed Woodward’s failed to sign!

first_imgPedro signs for Chelsea, Otamendi heads to Manchester City.In just one week Manchester United have been beaten to the signings of two long term targets by their biggest title rivals.Fans are frustrated with what is supposedly chief executive Ed Woodward’s failure to secure a number of top targets during his two years in charge.talkSPORT has put together a top class XI featuring players strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford during Woodward’s period as chief executive, that have signed deals elsewhere. 9. Pedro (attack) – snatched from beneath United’s noses. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – Few players can boast a CV quite as impressive as Pedro’s. The classy Spaniard was courted for most of the summer with Woodward heading out to Barcelona to seal a deal only to see Chelsea gazump them yet again. 12 6. Cesc Fabregas (midfield) – charmed by Mourinho. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – In another problem position for United, many saw Fabregas as the heir apparent to Paul Scholes. Restless at Barcelona, a move seemed on the cards until Chelsea swanned in and snatched the midfield schemer. Trophy laden transfer targets – Between them this team has won the Champions League 12 times, four World Cups, five European Championships and one League One title. 7. Toni Kroos (midfield) – chose trophies over Old Trafford. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – Having just won the World Cup with Germany and seemingly keen to leave Bayern Munich for a new challenge, Kroos would have been a quality addition to bolster United’s flimsy midfield. Kroos was available but he chose Real Madrid instead. 1. Asmir Begovic (goalkeeper) A proven Premier League goalkeeper available on the cheap? While Man United dithered, Chelsea snapped him up! Click the arrow above, right to see other players Man United could have signed – United went into the summer transfer window in clear need of a top notch keeper with David De Gea’s heart set on a move to Real Madrid and the cracks in Victor Valdes’ relationship with Louis Van Gaal already starting to show. Begovic became available but Chelsea snuck in first and bagged the Bosnian for a cut-price £8million. Instead, they signed Sergio Romero, who was a back up ‘keeper at Sampdoria. 12 12 11. Gareth Bale (attack) – continues to evade United. Click the arrow above, right to see how much silverware this group of players has won – Missed out on top target Bale in Moyes’ first summer and have been linked with the mercurial Welshman ever since. United’s big spending in recent years makes a mockery of the idea they couldn’t afford the world’s most expensive player when he went to Real Madrid in 2013. 5. Leighton Baines (left back) – turned down chance to be reunited with Moyes. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – David Moyes’ doomed tenure started with a disastrous summer spent courting his former charges at Everton. Having complained for years about the big clubs stealing his star players at Goodison Park, Moyes promptly tried, and failed, to lure Baines to Manchester, during his time in charge. 12 2. Dani Alves (right back) – bombastic right back snubbed Old Trafford deal. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – Neither Rafael or Antonio Valencia looked like the long-term solution at right back and the flamboyant Brazilian was nearing the end of his contract at Barcelona. It seemed like the perfect marriage when Alves courted United; either that or just a clever ploy from Alves to get a new contract at Barca. Still, Darmian has looked tasty since signing, so perhaps not signing Alves is a blessing. 12 12 12 8. Thiago Alcantara (midfield) – preferred move to Germany. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – Son of a World Cup winner, schooled at Barcelona’s La Masia academy and available having found chances at Barca hard to come by. Turned down Moyes to go to Bayern Munich where he has won four trophies in two injury-struck seasons. 12 12 10. Roberto Firmino (attack) – snubbed Red Devils for fierce rivals. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – A player who would have provided a creative spark and goals to a team that badly needs both, missing out on the Brazilian international will be doubly painful for the Old Trafford faithful due to him choosing rivals Liverpool. 12 12 4. Sergio Ramos (centre back) – Spaniard stayed in Madrid. Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – One of the finest, and dirtiest, defenders in the world game, Ramos would have walked into the Red Devils first team. Took a leaf out of Alves’ book, however, and signed new terms in Spain instead. 3. Nicolas Otamendi (centre back) – will Van Gaal rue missing out to rivals? Click the arrow above, right to see other failed Man United moves – Since Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic left Old Trafford there has been a clear need for quality reinforcements at the back. The bruising Otamendi has long been linked with a move to Manchester and has finally got his wish; only to the blue half of the city. 12last_img read more

DONEGAL TUNNEL TIGERS HAILED ON 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD RECORD

first_img“Tunnel Tigers” celebrated as two groups met in Ben Vorlich during the construction of the Loch Sloy scheme, 1949CLICK ON LINK TO SEE BBC TELEVISION REPORT http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34934795A group of Irish tunnel workers are being hailed in Scotland on the 60th anniversary of a unique world record. The Irish emigrants were among 45 workers known as the ‘Tunnel Tigers’ who set the record for rock breaking in 1955. The tigers made history by grinding through 557ft (170m) of rock in seven days.The momentous feat was achieved while building the St Fillans section of the Breadalbane hydro scheme in Perthshire.The Irish workers, mostly from County Donegal, were following in the footsteps of generations of Irish emigrants who travelled to Scotland for seasonal work.There are only a few known survivors from the Irish members of the record-breaking team. Colm Gallagher, 84, now lives back in his home town of Dungloe in County Donegal.“It was dangerous work, there was no safety going. You could wear a helmet or you could go without the helmet,” he told BBC News NI.“It wasn’t safe in the tunnels.”Mr Gallagher revealed that his own brother, Patrick, was killed while working in a Scottish tunnel.Image copyrightSSE, Scottish Renewables and Historic ScotlandImage captionLiving conditions for the workers were basic with many huts transferred from former Prisoner of War camps, as shown in this photo of the hydro workers’ camp in Cannich, during construction of the Affric/Beauly schemeHe also described his own close encounter with the tragic death of a fellow worker. “He was driving the loco (dumper truck) and he asked me for a cigarette and I gave him a cigarette. He came out, the next load that came out, he was on the top, dead.”Another worker, John ‘Gonna’ O’Donnell, left his family home in the Irish-speaking (Gaeltacht) village of Ranafast to work in tunnels of Scotland a year after the world record was set.Mr O’Donnell said the Tunnel Tigers’ achievement was “superhuman”“It’s just unreal, it was never done before and never, ever, in the history of mankind, will it ever be done again,” he said. “It was a superhuman effort, what they achieved. To me, they were supermen.”DONEGAL TUNNEL TIGERS HAILED ON 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF WORLD RECORD was last modified: December 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalScotlandTunnel Tigerslast_img read more
