Spurs ratings: Lo Celso impressed at Southampton but Lucas not a Kane replacement

admin no comments

first_imgTOTTENHAM will have to play yet another FA Cup replay after Southampton pegged them back late on at St Mary’s.Son Heung-min’s second half strike was cancelled out in the 86th minute by Sofiane Boufal three minutes from time.2 Lucas missed a golden chance in the first half and faded late onLucas Moura missed a one-on-one opportunity in the first half as keeper Angus Gunn kept him out with his left leg.Meanwhile, Argentine midfield maestro Giovani Lo Celso put himself in the frame to be Christian Eriksen’s long-term replacement with an excellent performance in the middle of the park.Dylan Terry watched the game, here’s how he saw the Tottenham players performances…HUGO LLORIS – 6What he had to do he did with confidence and assurance.He was uncharacteristically calm under pressure, with his only lapse in concentration coming when he was caught between two stalls and lobbed by Ings.Luckily for the Frenchman, Tanganga brilliantly bailed him out so it was not a costly error.SERGE AURIER – 6Performed well down the right, although was overshadowed by the defensive display of Tanganga.Always offered a creative outlet going forward and ultimately managed to avoid any silly challenges going the other way.A game without an Aurier blunder is one many Spurs fans will see as a win.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 6His distribution is never in question as he was able to pick out Lucas with a peach of a long ball midway through the first half.But his age is beginning to show as he was caught napping several times when Ings found space in behind.The Belgian’s experience is key to ensuring Sanchez does not go wandering, but you wonder if moving Tanganga inside may be the better long-term option.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 6Was man-handled at times by Danny Ings as the English striker was able to find space in between the two centre-halves all too easily.Still lacks the ability to pick a pass going forward, but is crucial to the Spurs side given Alderweireld’s lack of pace.JAPHET TANGANGA – 8Was an absolute rock at the back for Tottenham as he dealt with the pace of Obafemi supremely well.His goal-saving clearance on the line in the first half was one of the highlights of the game.Keeping Vertonghen out of the team may become a more regular occurence after today’s impressive performance.HARRY WINKS – 6Didn’t have the best of games compared to Lo Celso, but allowed the Argentine to play by shielding the back four well.The Spurs midfield undoubtedly look more assured with Winks in the team, even if his contribution does not light up the game like others do.However, his display will not have caught the eye of Mourinho, who seems to favour others in that position.GEDSON FERNANDES – 5A very quiet opening game for the new signing.He often seemed to be caught in two minds as to whether to stay with Winks or go and help create with Lo Celso.Will obviously take him a while to figure out exactly what Mourinho wants from him, but he hasn’t managed to hit the ground running.2 Lo Celso set up Son for the opening goal of the gameCredit: PA:Press AssociationGIOVANI LO CELSO – 8The best creative outlet for Spurs in what was an end-to-end encounter.Lo Celso picked out Son for the goal and nearly managed to repeated the feat moments later, but for the South Korean to rifle over.Really seems to be brimming with confidence now in that attacking midfield role – just what Mourinho would have wanted to see given the imminent departure of Christian Eriksen.DELE ALLI – 6Another who had a quiet game by all accounts, although is also an integral cog in Mourinho’s wheel.The movement of Son and Lucas was what made Spurs tick and Alli gave them the space with his runs into the area.SON HEUNG-MIN – 7Scored the opener with a wonderfully taken shot into the far corner, Harry Kane-esque.Missed a couple more decent chances when Spurs could have put the game to bed at 1-0, not so Kane-esque.Son is still clearly the best forward outlet Mourinho has at his disposal, but it is clear they do miss their talisman.LUCAS MOURA – 5His ability to lose the centre-half marking him is a trait Lucas Moura posesses in abundance.However, his finishing is a whole other story, in this game anyway.The one-on-one he spurned in the first half was the mark of someone not too confident in front of goal.And he began to tire in the second half, failing to provide the Tottenham defence with an effective outlet to deter the relentless pressure.LATETS FOOTBALL NEWSGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at

Tricon Marine is pleased to introduce the Argos Gu

first_imgTricon Marine is pleased to introduce the Argos Gulfstream – a limited-edition series of luxury, offshore performance yachts that boast unsurpassed details and amenities never before offered in vessels of similar size and class. The first model ­– the 92-foot (28-meter) Argos G92 – will make her debut at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which takes place October 29-November 2, 2009. Construction is also underway on the 100-foot (30.5-meter) Argos G100 model, scheduled for launch in 2010.Available in 80-foot to 120-foot (24.5- to 37.5-meter) models, the Argos Gulfstream features a sumptuous and spacious master stateroom SkySuite™ with 270-degree panoramic views. The ship’s multipurpose split-level sun decks offer infinite possibilities for entertainers and sports enthusiasts alike – they can host large social gatherings, carry tenders up to 22 feet (6.7 meters), and offer helipad capabilities. In addition, the Argos Gulfstream offers trans-oceanic cruising range, while offering high-speed performance to 33 knots.The Argos Gulfstream is crafted under a limited-production guarantee, a first for the luxury yacht industry. Only three hulls across the entire series will be built each year, providing owners with the utmost distinction in ownership and superior investment value.Christos Livadas is Chairman and CEO of Tricon Marine. A deeply passionate yachtsman for more than a decade, Mr. Livadas researched and purchased multiple luxury yachts prior to founding Tricon and eliminating the many tradeoffs inherent in motor yacht ownership.“The Argos Gulfstream eliminates compromises and the cookie-cutter look that characterizes so many luxury yachts today. She combines speed and range, seaworthiness and beauty, style and spaciousness,” comments Mr. Livadas.With a standard crew-forward arrangement, the ship’s layout completely separates her owner from crew operations. Her design provides the crew with direct access from their quarters to all day-to-day work areas, including the pilot house and galley, eliminating the need for the yacht’s crew to pass through the owner’s living or social areas.“Owners will be delighted by the Argos Gulfstream’s level of privacy, which is not available on any other yacht under 120 feet,” explains Mr. Livadas. “Equally impressive is her spectacular master SkySuite™ and flexible split-level sun deck, which ranges from 800 to 950 square feet (74 to 88 square meters) depending on the Argos Gulfstream model. Owners can use the sun deck for entertaining or convert it to a boat deck capable of transporting large tenders or a variety of leisure toys. These design features, coupled with the boat’s technical capabilities, ensures that the Argos Gulfstream commands a competitive position in its class.”SkySuite™ Stateroom with Panoramic Views The Argos Gulfstream features an industry-first in her class: an unconstrained second-deck master SkySuite™ stateroom. Positioned amidship and high above deck, the SkySuite™ is secluded, maintaining a level of owner privacy that is simply not available on other vessels of comparable size. Expansive windows provide breathtaking 270-degree panoramic views and ample natural sunlight.The SkySuite™ is styled with warm beige tones. The headboard framing the king-sized bed doubles as the back wall of the suite’s expansive walk-in closet, allowing natural light to flood the dressing area. Handcrafted sapele mahogany wood cabinets wrap the starboard side of the room. The cabinets feature a comfortable work area as well as a sophisticated entertainment system, equipped with a concealed 52” flat-screen television.Separate his and her heads provide privacy and luxury. Located on opposite sides of the suite, they are joined in the center by a luxurious shower. Light-colored granite flooring and countertops are a sharp contrast to the elevated sinks laced with dark granite.Versatile Sun Deck The expansive sun deck on the Argos Gulfstream is ideal for soaking up the sun while relaxing on large sunbeds. It is also an inviting space for hosting all types of social events – from al fresco dining and business meetings to parties on the open deck, which accommodates over 30 guests.When not in use for social activities, the sun deck transforms to carry leisure toys or large tenders (up to 22 feet or 6.7 meters), which can be loaded or offloaded using the fixed crane installed at the aft of this deck. Owners can also choose to add helipad capabilities. As with the SkySuite™, the sun deck offers unsurpassed privacy without intrusions from the ship’s crew.Custom Layouts In addition to the SkySuite™ stateroom, the Argos Gulfstream models offer three well-appointed guest staterooms and crew quarters for four. A wide range of additional custom layouts are also availableTechnical Features Concept and design of the Argos Gulfstream series was carried out by the company’s internal design team, with naval architecture led by internationally renowned architect, Howard Apollonio.Purpose built for challenging seas and frequent Gulf Stream crossings, the Argos features a unique profile, giving her a low center of gravity and significantly reduced roll. Her proprietary semi-displacement hull provides trans-oceanic range and high-performance speed.Extensive tank testing was completed at the British Columbia Marine Research Institute, where over 60 trial runs were made using multiple hull configurations, 10 to 35 knot speeds and multiple sea states to ensure safety, efficiency and performance. The hull was specially tuned for a soft ride into six-foot seas at speeds exceeding 20 knots. Carefully optimized V angles, soft chines and streamlining lend the Gulfstream a natural lift while reducing bow wave, pounding, drag, and roll, which provides a distinctively fast, smooth and quiet ride.A broad range of engine options are available, from 600 hp to 2400 hp to meet owners personal performance preferences, including high-horsepower packages that offer speeds of up to 33 knots. When equipped with C-32 1650 hp Cats, the Argos Gulfstream delivers a top speed of 25kt+, with a 2,800 nautical-mile range at passage-making speed of nine knots.State-of-the-Art Shipyard The Argos series of yachts is constructed at Tricon Marine’s shipyard in Zhuhai, China, an hour ferry ride away from Hong Kong and a short drive from Macau. Tricon is the first wholly-owned and operated North-American shipyard in China specializing in custom and limited-series mega-yacht builds. The recently completed, half-million square foot (55,000 square meter) state-of-the-art facility is limiting build-slots to a maximum of three yachts in simultaneous production for the next few years to ensure a very high level of quality and that no construction detail is overlooked. Tricon’s shipyard currently accommodates the largest composite yacht construction in China with current production capabilities of yachts to 145 feet (44 meters) in length and expanding to 180 feet (55 meters).www.argosyachts.comlast_img read more
