And United have won 12 and drawn seven of their last 19 league visits to Villa Park.Villa also need to improve on their home form; last season they won just five Villa Park games in the Premier League. Indeed, in the last four seasons Villa have never won more than six out of 19 home games.United, though, won only six on their travels in 2014-15 and drew eight away games last season – only Sunderland (nine) were held to more away draws.last_img read more

Butler practices again with Wolves, as opener nears

admin No Comments

first_imgMOST READ “They want me to go out here and hoop to the best of my abilities,” Butler said. “Make sure I’m healthy, compete, because that’s what I love to do, and do it for the guys in the same jerseys as me.”Butler made a surprising, and reportedly disruptive, appearance with the Wolves during their workout on Wednesday. They canceled practice on Thursday, after Butler went on ESPN to try to explain his motivations and frustrations in a wide-ranging interview that included criticism of the consistency of the effort by teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. When the Wolves played a preseason game in Milwaukee on Friday, Butler stayed back. The team was off on Saturday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“I can go out there and I can play,” Butler said. “It’s all about playing hard. I think I can do that. When I’m gassed and I’m tired, I’ll look down at Thibs and say, ‘Thibs, I need a break.’”Though Butler stopped short of assuring his presence on the court on Wednesday when the Wolves visit San Antonio, coach Tom Thibodeau said he expected Butler to play against the Spurs as long as he remains on the roster. The official stance of Thibodeau, who serves as the president of basketball operations, and general manager Scott Layden over the last three weeks has been that the Wolves will deal Butler if it makes sense for the direction of the team.

I want y’all to win games. My name is still attached to this thing,” he said. “I’m still here, so we’d better win.”Wiggins, for his part, has never expressed any ill will toward Butler.“All I know is, when we start playing the real games, Jimmy is someone you want on your team,” he said. “At the end of the day, people can say what they want to say, but he’s a winner.” Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Tio caps ‘tough week’ with silver medal for PH Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crowncenter_img “Everything’s fluid,” Thibodeau said. “We’ll continue to work through things.”Asked whether his relationship with Wolves management has changed, Butler said no. As for whether he’s still seeking a trade?“Maybe,” he said. “I’m going to be passive-aggressive like everybody else.”The Wolves face Cleveland in their first home game on Friday, and the crowd at Target Center that cheered so loudly for Butler in his standout debut season in Minnesota is more than likely to produce the opposite reaction if he plays against the Cavaliers, considering the dysfunction his demand has caused.“Sure, boo me,” Butler said. “Ain’t going to change the way I play.

Hugo Chávez Homeless Shelter gets “thumbs up” for its services

admin No Comments

first_imgThe Hugo Chávez Homeless Shelter, located at Onverwagt Village, West Coast Berbice, has received a “thumbs up” for helping homeless persons to be reunited with their families.The multimillion-dollar shelter, a gift from late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, has as its objective, assisting in the social and physical welfare of persons who may have found themselves out of a home.The centre, which has separate dorms for males and females; a kitchen; recreational, medical, training, dining facilities and conference rooms, has the capacity to hold 200 males and 100 females and sits on 7.30 acres of land. Some of the land has been set aside for residents to engage in agriculture. Counselling is also offered at the centre.Consultant of the shelter Carol Joseph speaking withGuyana Times disclosed that many residents at the shelter are of sound mind but would have encountered disputes with their families that caused them to choose the streets over their homes. “What we do at the shelter here is to contact their families and work on a solution upon their behalf so they can return to their families” said Joseph.According to Joseph: “When they leave here, we do not forget about them but we do a continuous follow-up on them. So far, all of the persons we have integrated with their families are doing well and keeping up their end of the bargain.”Enterprising residents of the shelter have engaged themselves in several agricultural activities.Even though the shelter has the capacity for housing approximately 300 residents, it has never reached half of its capacity. The current population is 55 residents.Meanwhile, the Ministry of Social Protection in collaboration with Project Restore Guyana (PRG) has been working to clear the pavements of homeless people.Lennox Lee, speaking with Guyana Times, disclosed that PRG is working to remove homeless people and place them in various shelters: “They were collected and taken to the hospital and then placed in shelters. Some are still in the hospital but as soon as they are well they will be placed in shelters.”Lee noted the removal of the vagrants is not a temporary action but will be a continuous activity to keep the streets cleared and place the people in better conditions.last_img read more

LEC Admits to Challenges in Energy Sector, Replies GSA Road Residents, Businesses

admin No Comments

first_imgReacting to the concerns of the General Services Agency (GSA) Road’s residents and businesses, the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has admitted it is facing serious constraints in the country’s energy sector.They admitted that concerns expressed by residents and businesses on the GSA Road are genuine and plans are being worked out to ensure the area is fully connected this year. LEC, however, pointed out that some parts of the GSA Road have been connected on their power lines in Paynesville.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer Monday, April 28, LEC’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Joseph T. Mayah, claimed that the nation’s electrical system was almost completely destroyed as a result of the civil conflict.He said prior to the 15-year-civil war, the LEC operated nationally with total assets of US$700,000,000. Unfortunately, the company’s power plants and related facilities were completely destroyed rendering the system useless.“We must be realistic with Liberians and let them know that the LEC has many hurdles to clear. Liberians should continue to exercise patience as we translate our plans into practical solutions. We are doing all we can to provide the nation with the best service possible,” Mr. Mayah explained.He disclosed that Liberia’s electricity sector has received strong support from the Liberian Government, and its partners from around the world.The LEC’s Deputy Chief said the Corporation’s major donor partners were the World Bank, European Development Bank, African Development Bank and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).Shedding light on the Mount Coffee Hydro project, Mr. Mayah said steady progress has been made with a commitment from government and its partners of US$260,000,000 to complete the plant. If things work out according to schedule, the hydro should be completed by 2015.He said the LEC is in the business of selling a product and should therefore be able to provide reliable power to its many customers in the country.“Our expansion initiative in Kakata in Margibi County is nearing completion, as bulk of the power lines connections have been installed,” he added.According to him, the expansion project has received a contribution from Japan of US$27,000,000; with the World Bank pledged US$16,000,000 and the Liberian Government promising US$30,000,000. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Germany 1-0 Argentina (aet): Gotze strike wins the World Cup

admin No Comments

first_img Mario Gotze (left) celebrates scoring the winner for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final getty Germany have won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after defeating Argentina 1-0 in extra time.The narrative suggested a moment of individual class would win the game with Lionel Messi and Thomas Muller chief candidates, but in the end neither was able to add their own personal touch.Instead it was Mario Gotze, who saw himself dropped from the Germany starting line-up after the first two games of the tournament, but ultimately etched his name into history with a finely taken goal seven minutes from the final whistle.It was a bruising encounter at the Maracana, one which left Bastian Schweinsteiger barely able to stand after 120 minutes. Eventually one set of players had to emerge battered but victorious in Rio de Janeiro and that was the masterful Europeans who denied their opponents space and time at the most crucial points with ex-Manchester City player Jerome Boateng producing a stunning display in defence.Although goalless until the 113th minute, it was not a defensive game. An early free-kick for the Germans, conceded by Marcos Rojo, was wasted by Toni Kroos and Argentina’s swift counter nearly resulted in a Gonzalo Higuain goal.Argentinian boss Alejandro Sabella appeared to target Benedikt Howedes, the Germany left-back, with Ezequiel Lavezzi and Lionel Messi gravitating towards the Schalke star, who usually plies his trade as a central defender.Early forays down the right from Messi, who failed to score in the knockout stages, nearly saw the ball land at Enzo Perez’s feet after Mats Hummels had been beaten all ends up. Thankfully Schweinsteiger was able to intercept the ball.Bayer Leverkusen’s Christoph Kramer, a late replacement for the injured Sami Khedira who injured his calf in the warm up, was sent spiralling to the turf by Ezequiel Garay’s shoulder and looked punch drunk as he got to his feet.And Argentina then nearly landed a knockout blow moments later as a senseless Kroos back header allowed Gonzalo Higuain to race goalwards centrally but, perhaps overawed by the occasion, the Napoli striker drilled wide.The 26-year-old was made to pay for his lack of composure on the half-hour mark as his finish from a Messi cross was ruled out correctly for offside.Kramer was eventually forced from the field looking dazed and confused, which saw Joachim Low bring Andre Schurrle into the fray. That gave Germany a more attack-minded look, although probably earlier than the Europeans would have wanted. In any case the Chelsea forward nearly made an immediate impact as his rifled strike was well saved by Sergio Romero.With a player like Messi on the pitch Germany couldn’t afford to switch off defensively, but the Barcelona star, with afterburners on, was able to get in behind their backline again just prior to the break. Manuel Neuer was quickly off the line but as a shot squeezed past him it was left for Boateng to knock the ball to safety.Howedes hadn’t had the brightest of games but in first-half injury time he nearly became the hero of the piece. The defender was only able to crash Kroos’ inch-perfect corner into the upright, however.Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero replaced Lavezzi at the break and that appeared to liven the South Americans, who almost immediately took the lead as Messi flashed a strike across the face of goal.The Argentines, with newly found vigour, set about attacking their hesitant opponents but Boateng was again able to stop Messi latching onto a menacing through ball.Another Argentinian punt towards the German area caused panic and sent Neuer racing out to the edge of his area. The Bayern Munich man punched it clear, but also sent Higuain clattering to the deck with his knee, angering the striker.Meanwhile, at the other end, Miroslav Klose, the leading goalscorer in World Cup history, failed to test Romero with a tame downward header on an anonymous outing that is likely to be his last ever for Germany.The final, which had previously had a frantic edge to it, cooled midway through the second period and lurched towards extra time, but a rally from the Germans ten minutes from the end kept Argentina on their toes – with Kroos sliding a daisycutter agonisingly past the post – while Messi briefly fired back into life with three minutes remaining. His slaloming run was halted by the impeccable Boateng, who denied the Barcelona man for the umpteenth time seconds later.Those two telling touches beckoned the final whistle and 30 more minutes of action in Rio de Janeiro, and it was Germany who looked to strike first as Schurrle saw an early chance saved. The imperious Boateng, at the other end, interrupted a Messi-Aguero one-two before Rodrigo Palacio’s misdirected lob briefly had Neuer and Boateng worried.Javier Mascherano, despite tired legs, wasn’t about to give up his claims on the World Cup and a brilliant interception stopped Philipp Lahms pass toward the edge of the penalty area as another chance was cut out.Man City striker Aguero was then lucky to remain on the field as he caught Schweinsteiger underneath the eye, which saw blood spill, and with tired legs across the pitch the match was becoming more disjointed than ever.Penalties were looming – but there was to be a winner.Schurrle, who has been sensational off the bench for Germany throughout the tournament, charged down the left flank and fired a cross into the box. Romero remained rooted to his line allowing Gotze to ghost in and, after controlling the ball with his chest, flick the ball into the back of the net.The stadium erupted and Low’s side celebrated wildly, but they had to remain calm and not allow their opponents back into the match. Unfortunately a tired Schwiensteiger tackle gave Messi one last chance. The Argentine, with the weight of the world on his shoulders, shuffled forwards to strike his free kick, but his attempt flew harmlessly over the bar.And as the Barcelona star let out a heavy sigh, Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli called time on the 2014 World Cup final, allowing Lahm to hoist the trophy above his head in the shadow of Christ the Redeemer.center_img 1last_img read more

Jose concedes Man Utd incapable of living with Liverpool

admin No Comments

first_img“The players gave everything and when they give everything I’m never upset with them. I have a good feeling towards them, they play in relation to their qualities, the same way the opponent played in relation to their qualities,” said Mourinho.“They (Liverpool) are fast, intense, aggressive, physical, they play 200 miles per hour with the ball and without the ball.”Mourinho also turned on his players’ injury record after having to name a patched up defence with Eric Bailly replacing Chris Smalling at the last minute after the latter picked up an injury in the warm-up.“We have lots of problems related to physicality,” added Mourinho. “We have lots of players that I could consider injury problems, because some of our players are always injured.”However, there will be little sympathy for the Portuguese’s protests as he left £89 million signing Paul Pogba on the bench for the full 90 minutes, while £50 summer recruit Fred didn’t even make the squad.Victory took Liverpool back a point above Manchester City and a mammoth 19 clear of United, who remain in sixth and are now 11 points off the top four.However, Mourinho insisted United can still qualify for next season’s Champions League.“I know that we lost some other matches but we played Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City away, probably the three best teams apart from Tottenham,” he added. “I think we have more possibilities to do more points in the second half of the season than the first.”– Liverpool lay seige –The contrasting form showed by both sides this season continued as United strained to keep a rampant Liverpool at bay and were only level for so long thanks to a huge error by home goalkeeper Alisson Becker.“You (the media) didn’t say too many nice things about them and good things about us. It was made for another result. We wanted to avoid that and we fought really hard,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.Liverpool laid siege to the visitors’ goal early on with David de Gea stretching to keep out a low drive from Roberto Firmino, Ashley Young clearing off the line and Fabinho firing wide from the edge of the box.“A brilliant start. One of the best performances we’ve had since I’ve been at Liverpool,” added Klopp. “The first half an hour was outstanding.”Only City have kept Klopp’s side from scoring in the Premier League this season and a United defence that has kept just one clean sheet in the league since September never looked capable of holding out like they had in their two previous visits to Anfield.Mourinho’s men were finally breached when Mane controlled Fabinho’s chipped ball into the box on his chest and volleyed past the onrushing De Gea on 24 minutes.However, Liverpool’s momentum was punctured by an Alisson gift 12 minutes before the break.The Brazilian was Liverpool’s hero with an injury-time save to secure the Reds’ place in the last 16 of the Champions League against Napoli on Tuesday.But he spilled Romelu Lukaku’s simple cross into the path of the grateful Lingard to bundle the ball into an unguarded net.The second half followed a similar pattern but it wasn’t until Klopp turned to Shaqiri 20 minutes from time that Liverpool found a way through.Three minutes later De Gea did well to prevent Ander Herrera turning Mane’s cross into his own net, but the ball fell for Shaqiri and his effort cannoned off Young and in off the underside of the bar.Shaqiri got lucky again with 10 minutes to go when, this time on his favoured left foot, his shot flicked off the diving Bailly to leave De Gea helpless.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Xherdan Shaqiri scored twice as Liverpool saw off a passive Manchester United © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Dec 16 – Jose Mourinho hinted Manchester United’s players are simply not good enough to compete with Liverpool after being brushed aside 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday by the Premier League leaders.Mourinho claimed ahead of the game that Liverpool have had luck on their side this season, but while there was fortune in substitute Xherdan Shaqiri’s two deflected strikes in the final 17 minutes, the visitors did not deserve anything more than a fifth league defeat of the season.last_img read more
