Arsene Wenger fears Alexis Sanchez is more injured than he is letting on

first_img “We lost Sanchez, Cazorla played on one leg and of course we lost Koscielny at the start of the game, it is a fair point for Norwich. It was, on the injury-front, a bad afternoon for us.” Wenger confirmed Koscielny was struggling to move after the game and that he is worried Cazorla may have suffered ligament damage in a challenge with Gary O’Neil, while Kieran Gibbs was left out with a calf problem. Meanwhile, Norwich boss Alex Neil was full of praise for Grabban after handing the striker his first league start since the opening weekend of the season. The 27-year-old had been suspended by the Canaries after refusing to be a substitute in a Capital One Cup tie back in August. Former club Bournemouth had bids rejected as they looked to lure him back to the south coast and, although he ultimately remained a Norwich player, he was rarely given the opportunity to feature. “If it doesn’t go to plan and we lost I would probably get criticised for putting him in,” Neil said of his decision to start the forward. “At the end of the day management is about making decisions you think are right when everyone else thinks it is wrong. “He gives me work-rate, will run the channels and retain it really well. Every player goes out there with something to prove. There was more of an edge to him and his game today, that is what he is able to do.” Neil, who could have been celebrating a famous win had Wes Hoolahan buried an easy chance on half-time that he instead ballooned over the crossbar, said everyone has moved on from the unsavoury incident. “Really simple,” he said when asked how easy it had been to put the event behind him. “It has been fine. I have a good relationship with him, if anyone breaks the rules or does something they shouldn’t they will be punished, it hasn’t been an issue, we have moved on. Because that happened he put himself behind others in the pecking order and that is why he hasn’t been involved – but I thought this game suited his attributes.” Arsene Wenger fears Alexis Sanchez is playing down a hamstring injury that he suffered in Arsenal’s draw at Norwich. The Chile international was forced off during the second-half of the 1-1 at Carrow Road as the Gunners missed the opportunity to join Manchester City and Leicester at the top of the Barclays Premier League table. Sanchez laid on the opening goal for Mesut Ozil before recalled Lewis Grabban levelled for Norwich, who then created the better chances after the visitors had lost their talisman to a hamstring injury. Having already seen Laurent Koscielny forced off with a hip complaint and Santi Cazorla finish the game “on one leg” after taking a knock to his knee, losing Sanchez for any length of time will be seen as a big blow. The 26-year-old has scored nine goals this season and, although Wenger revealed on Thursday the former Barcelona man had felt his hamstring after netting a brace the 3-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb, he felt he was fit enough to start in Norfolk. “The players are there to play football and not to be rested and not for the press to decide if they need to be rested,” Wenger replied when asked about Sanchez’s injury in his post-match press conference. “He says it is a kick on his hamstring, I believe that is not really the reality. I fear it is not the reality.” The Frenchman also cited a lack of options in attacking areas as a reason for why Sanchez was selected and, after praising him for being aware of how far he can push himself in the build up to the game, was happy to trust his players’ own opinion. “At the moment we have – on the striker front – not much choice. Maybe the travelling as well to South America….I would have rested him today but he felt perfectly all right before the game and he declared that he had no problem,” he said. “We checked it (Sanchez’s hamstring) When you have normal force and normal stretch there is no problem and he had that. “Nobody is scientifically developed enough to predict when a guy will be injured. I must say with all humility we are not in a position where we can predict (injuries) despite all our tests. Press Associationlast_img read more

We Ticked All Boxes Against Australia: Shikhar Dhawan

first_imgLondon: Opener Shikhar Dhawan, who smacked a brilliant century against Australia, was extremely happy with the way India performed in all the three departments during their 36-run World Cup win at the Kennington Oval.“We are happy with the result as it was a great team effort. It’s a great sign for our team and I’m happy with this man of the match award. We are very happy with the performance overall,” said Dhawan at the post-match presentation ceremony.The 33-year-old said that the Men in Blue performed in all the three departments and thus ticked all the boxes. India, after setting a humongous total of 352/5, were equally impressive with the ball as they kept on chipping the wickets and never let the foot off the peddle.In the field as well, they took some great catches and inflicted some brilliant run-outs to make sure they avenged the loss of the ODI series which they lost at home against the defending champions earlier this year. “We are a great fielding side, we took great catches. We have a good bowling side, great spinners as well. We work really hard in the nets, our process is very strong that’s why the results are going our way,” said Dhawan.

Women of Troy finish fourth at Pac-10s

first_imgThe No. 4 USC women’s golf team started strong but faded on its way to a fourth place finish at the Pac-10 Women’s Golf Championship at the Eugene Country Club, in Eugene, Ore.Quick learner · Freshman Cyna Rodriguez shot a final round 68 to complete the best finish of her young career with the Women of Troy. – Photo courtesy of USC Sports Information The Women of Troy finished one stroke back of eventual winner No. 7 Arizona on the first day of play but dropped to fifth on the second day. After the second round, senior Belen Mozo was disqualified for a rules violation.“There was a misunderstanding on the first tee as to whether the rule was to play the ball down [playing the ball as it lies] or to life, clean and play [cleaning off the ball and placing it back down before the shot]” said USC coach Andrea Gaston.Since Mozo played by herself after her playing partner quit because of illness, there was no one to correct her during the round.“She had to take a two stroke penalty for every time she cleaned it, which would have been ridiculous, or she could take the DQ,” Gaston said.Her disqualification left the Women of Troy with only four scores left, all of which had to count toward the team’s final tallyWithout Mozo’s 75, USC’s lowest round of the day, the team score added in junior Lizette Salas’ 83, putting the Women of Troy into fifth place. In the final round, the Women of Troy had the second lowest team score of the day, boosting the team into a fourth place finish.USC finished at 27-over-par 891 (284-318-289), 13 strokes behind winner Arizona at 14-over-par 878 (293-297-288).Had Mozo not been disqualified, the Women of Troy would have finished third, behind Arizona and   No. 2 UCLA, and Mozo would have finished tied for 8th since she would have finished at 4-over-par 220      (72-75-73). Instead, the Women of Troy also finished behind host Oregon.Though Mozo lost her top-10 finish, sophomore Jennifer Song finished tied for third at 3-over-par 219 (70-76-73), five strokes behind eventual individual winner Carlota Ciganda of No. 1 Arizona State. Song’s finish gives her six top-10 finishes out of the seven tournaments she’s played this season.Freshman Cyna Rodriguez had her best finish at USC in her first postseason event, tying for 10th at 5-over-par 221 (73-80-68). Rodriguez’s final round was not only her best with the Women of Troy, her 68 was the low score for the entire tournament.Salas rebounded from her 83 in the second round to finish tied for 23rd at 11-over-par 227 (69-83-75). Her second round was her highest of the season by four strokes. Senior Caroline Kim rounded out the team with a tie for 30th at 17-over-par 233 (76-79-78).The team has two postseason tournaments remaining, beginning with the NCAA Championship Regionals on May 6 to 8. The location will be determined next week when the NCAA releases seeds, which will be distributed among the regions to make them even.With travel budgets being restricted, USC will likely end up in the West or the Midwest region. Before then, the Women of Troy have work to do.“We’re an incredibly talented team, and I have no doubt we have the depth and talent to do so much better than we did,” Gaston said. “But we need more confidence.”last_img read more

Beehive – Sponsor Profile – #bofcon2017

first_img 10bet announce Drogba as brand ambassador September 13, 2019 Submit Related Articles Share SBC’s Year In Review: March 2019’s big betting news December 23, 2019 David Webb, BetConstruct: Why meeting new regulations is the industry’s big challenge for 2019 April 4, 2019 Share Adi Dagan, BeehiveBeehive is sponsoring Betting on Football 2017, the fourth edition of the largest international football and betting trade conference at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge.Ahead of the 3-5 May event, we spoke to Beehive CEO Adi Dagan about why football is such an attractive sport for betting, how the market is changing from a consumer perspective and how betting and football stakeholders can work more effectively together.SBC: Why is football such an attractive sport for betting?AD: The volume of games and accessibility of leagues speaks for itself, but football also has the benefit of lending itself to in-play and mobile betting perhaps more than any other sport. Given the predominance of the sport in social settings, and the growing number of variables within any given game (as well as away from the pitch), football has no equal. Even when it comes to team sports, the relative rigidity of action and positions limits the number of available betting markets – few have the flexibility or the visibility of football, and none have both in unison. This, in turn, allows for efficient marketing by allowing a genuinely granular segmentation of bettors and betting patterns, the like of which isn’t seen elsewhere.SBC: From a consumer perspective, how is football betting changing?AD: Consumers have never had more choice when it comes to betting on football, and it can sometimes be daunting when faced with an influx of odds and markets from all corners. But this also helps drive operators to introduce greater choice and more innovations to help savvy punters get the most from the experience, be that through competitive promotions, custom bets or whatever the next innovation ends up being. It has never been more important to make consumers feel important and wanted, which is where Beehive’s use of big data comes into play, making relationships personal in order to retain the trust and support of players. We have always seen it as our task to offer omni-channel marketing solutions, something which lends itself to football betting due to its own omni-channel nature. And within that framework, our refusal to stand still means we have adapted, and will continue to adapt, to any changes within the industry to ensure our partners are perfectly placed to stay ahead of the curve.SBC: How can betting & football stakeholders work better and more effectively together?AD: It can be tempting to get complacent when it comes to betting and football, and to fall back on the benefits offered almost naturally by the world’s most popular sport. Instead, if stakeholders want to truly maximise what they can get from the football space, a marriage of effective marketing and promotional tools can be vital in setting oneself apart from others in a hugely crowded space. The more attention-to-detail, the better, and an attentive approach can be achieved effectively through a proper harnessing of big data in analysing existing and new customers, both individually and as a small, medium and/or large group. Not only are new consumers arriving with different demands and expectations, but the demands and expectations of existing consumers is changing (and may continue to change) as the industry itself develops, so it has never been more important to adopt a marketing approach that leaves no stone unturned and makes no assumptions about a certain demographic of player without this being backed up by hard data.SBC: What new technology do you feel will have the biggest impact on football betting?AD: The growth of AI has near-endless potential when it comes to an understanding of customers in all aspects of sports betting, but especially in the realm of football betting where stakeholders have reams of data with which to work. At Beehive, we anticipate seeing the benefit of AI in helping improve marketing strategies through an even stronger understanding of bettors’ needs and expectations, as well as helping tailor promotions to patterns which can be missed – or picked up more slowly – when more traditional, pre-AI approaches are used. By realising the opportunities afforded by the rise of AI, those at the forefront of football betting will be well-positioned to remain there, while newcomers to the industry can make up significant ground and make strides towards being able to deliver the best strategic approach possible.SBC: What key agenda, debate or discussion do you want to hear at BOFCON 2017?AD: As we have made great strides in the field of VIP detection, a discussion of the relative value of VIP programs and their changing value in the football betting space. As we make it our priority to develop a personalised experience, we see value in any discussion of how those within the space are adapting existing programs to changing audience behaviours as the landscape of football betting shifts along with technological developments.

March Madness 2019: Zion Williamson and 5 other stars to watch in the NCAA Tournament

first_imgZion Williamson has been the story of college basketball this season. The freshman burst onto the scene with a 28-point, seven-rebound performance against Kentucky in his first game with Duke and has not slowed down. Williamson, who is averaging 22.1 points while shooting 69.3 percent from the field in 2018-19, sprained his knee less than 40 seconds into the Blue Devils’ first matchup with North Carolina and missed the next five games.Williamson, however, returned for the ACC Tournament and led his team to the postseason conference championship. Related News March Madness 2019: 3 storylines to follow in Round 1 NC Central coach: Us playing Zion Williamson would be like my 6-year-old son playing mecenter_img Here are six stars worth watching in the NCAA Tournament, starting with Williamson:Zion Williamson, F, DukeWilliamson is arguably the best college player of this decade and has exceeded all expectations. He has excelled offensively and is almost impossible to stop in transition. He’s knocking down 31.5 percent of his 3-pointers, as well, which is better than anticipated.The 6-7, 285-pound forward has also made an impact on the other end of the floor and should be able to protect the rim at the next level. He’ll almost certainly be the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft.RJ Barrett, F, DukeBarrett has shined sharing the floor with Williamson.The top recruit in the 2018 class has often times been overshadowed by his star teammate this season but has been almost as productive. He’s leading the team in scoring and became the focal point of the Blue Devils’ offense when Williamson was out with the injury.Barrett has struggled from 3-point range but has solid form and a chance to improve in that area. He’s projected to be selected behind Williamson.Ja Morant, G, Murray State  Morant seemingly came out of nowhere and shot up draft boards in 2018-19. The Murray State guard is expected to be a top-five pick and could become the first player in NCAA Division I history to average double-digit point (24.6) and assist (10) totals in a single season.Morant and Murray State will face fifth-seeded Marquette in one of the most intriguing matchups in the Round of 64.Jarrett Culver, G, Texas TechCulver was the most effective player on a Texas Tech team that earned a share of the Big 12 regular season title.The 6-5 guard topped the Red Raiders in points (18.5), rebounds (6.3) and assists (3.7) per game in 2018-19.If Texas Tech makes a deep run in the tournament, Culver will be a big reason why. He’ll be playing in the NBA next season.Rui Hachimura, F, GonzagaHachimura’s game should translate perfectly into the NBA.The 6-8 forward followed up a strong sophomore season by increasing his production across the board. He’s a reliable inside scorer that can also stretch the floor, as he’s connected on 46.9 percent of his 3-point attempts.Hachimura struggles with turnovers but is still projected to be selected with the 11th pick in Sporting News’ latest 2019 mock draft. De’Andre Hunter, F, VirginiaThe Virginia wing was sidelined for his team’s shocking loss to No. 16 seed UMBC last season. Hunter, however, was a major reason Virginia received another top spot in the bracket in 2018-19.On top of being a lockdown defender, Hunter has tallied 15.1 points and five rebounds per game while shooting 53 percent from the field and 45.7 percent from 3-point range.He projects to be a top 3-and-D player at the next level and has been compared to Raptors star Kawhi Leonard.last_img read more

Due to long wait, Kansas Rewards Card will be given out Friday; new traditional schedule released

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Wellington High School and Middle School have completed their official enrollment days, but the distribution for the Kansas Star Rewards Card will live on to see another day.School and lottery officials have expanded the distributing of the $100 VISA prepaid cards to the parents of USD 353 K-12  students for Friday at the WHS building from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.On Thursday, people stood in line for almost an hour, getting their rewards cards. The line on the south end of the commons stretched to the south entrance doors. So if the line is anything like today, prepare to take up a chunk of your time.As far as registration for classes and fees are concerned, WHS Principal Dale Adams said fees have remained the same as in years past. But a few people grumbled to Sumner Newscow that the fees seemed exorbitantly high nevertheless.Said one Newscow reader:“I had to cough up a small fortune for school fees and after talking to people at other school districts, I just have to wonder why our fees are so high, what they are specifically for ($5 for English class?), and why if we pay the taxes we do and buy all if these school supplies like copy paper and tissues, why are we also paying outrageous school fees? Do the schools actually get this money?”Adams said fees at registration goes to offset the expenses of conducting the class. For example, the fees to play in the band, or participate in sports range around $20 than say an English class that costs $5.“I think next year we will go with a flat registration fee,” Adams said.•••••Traditional schedule The new high school schedule is being implemented this fall which is actually a return of an old schedule from yesteryear.WHS has returned to traditional scheduling and will include an eight-period days five days a week. This is a schedule common in smaller schools, and many bigger schools that are returning back to the traditional schedule setting.Wellington has had block scheduling since the late 1990s in which courses were taught 85 minutes on every other day. Traditional scheduling has classes everyday in almost half the time frame.Adams said the new schedule is not costing parents anymore money. They are paying for eight classes, as they did last year.As far as the specific scheduling is concerned, there are two classes which will stretch over a two-period time.There is one PSQ class, i.e. weights and conditioning, which will stretch over two periods as will an “Intro to Carpentry” class.Every other class will be taught during one period including chemistry, physics and vocational agriculture.

You can go to the Box office at the Casino. This is what the site says: *Make-Up Days for Reward Card Distribution Who: Teachers or parents of K-12 students, in Mulvane or Sumner County school districts, who are not able to pick up their $100 Universal Visa® Prepaid card when we are visiting your district.

This is inside the casino facility but off of the casino floor, so it’s OK if minors are accompanying the parents during card pick-up as long as the Southeast or hotel entrance is used. How: Only a parent or legal guardian on file is allowed to pick up a student’s reward card. If a parent/guardian is not able to make it to card distribution in their district, or to any of these make-up days, the parent/guardian can choose to designate someone to pick up the card on their behalf. To do so, the parent/guardian must prepare a written authorization to pick up the card to include a photocopy of the parent’s/guardian’s legal ID, and the name of the designee. This process also applies to teachers who need to designate a friend or colleague.

Former Bayern Munich striker Gerd Muller is in the top 20 and no player comes remotely close to his phenomenal goals-per-game ratio of 0.95.Puskas boasted a goal-to-game ratio of 0.85 and Di Stefano’s was 0.84, while Messi’s is currently 0.82, which is undoubtedly the best in the modern era.

Palop: “If LaLiga did not return, it would give the season as null”

first_imgAndrés Palop (L’Alcudia, 1973) gave joy to the world of soccer when he published on his Instagram on April 14 that overcome the coronavirus. The exvalencianista and exsevillista was 12 days admitted and 17 days of isolation, and only the concern of having infected his relatives equaled the discomfort that the illness made him feel. Fortunately his family never showed symptoms, although he admits that “he does not know” if he infected them because they could not do the test.Your return home coincides with the start of football clubs and although he is a supporter of resume LaLiga as long as the health allow, acknowledges that he sees “very difficult” that the 2019/2020 season can be closed. In fact, as you tell ACE, he has “very, very clear” that he would give “the season by null“ How are you after all the process you have been through going through COVID-19?Well, I’m fine now. I came out of the infection situation and after having been in hospital for 12 days and 17 days in isolation, when I came out I was fully recovered and without symptoms, which reassures me. I am going to live a normal life, but following all the precautions until they give us concrete, real and tested data, I am going to be very careful.In other words, he will have run a little bit …In fact, today was the first day I went out. Since they gave me a free Sunday to go out, I had stayed at home, but today I needed it. I was out early enough to avoid people and I walked around for a while.Going outside will have been a relief after having experienced the coronavirus in the first person. When do you think you got it?I noticed the first symptoms eight days after being in Barcelona, ​​it was not difficult to identify, possibly in the EuroMed returning home I became infected, it is the greatest suspicion I have.Come back from Barcelona, ​​notice the symptoms and the hospital …Yes, I arrived and there were quite a few people like me, with symptoms. After waiting about 35 minutes they made me an X-ray plate and I had to wait in the box for about an hour and a half for them to tell me the results. “I would give the season for nothing, in eleven days everything can happen, look at Getafe last year, the entire season in Champions and in the end that place went to Valencia.” Why did he not say anything when he suffered from the disease, but published on networks that he had overcome it?I decided not to say anything to anyone that I had the disease to avoid worrying my close ones, I think that when they found out that I had overcome it they took it as good news and I spared them the worry they would have had to know when I was sick. The publication was to thank all the doctors who had taken care of me for the treatment received and also to try to reassure all those people who are ill, that this can be overcome.Already talking about football. How do you see the possible return of LaLiga? Within the Valencia dressing room, for example, some are more favorable and others more reticent …I see it difficult, very difficult. I would love that each team could reach the teams it is pursuing but the situation is what it is. The truth is that the measures taken are correct, the lack of confinement is also accelerating and there is more and more freedom, which is a good fact, but we cannot relax. Football is going down that line, accelerating but we still have to be very careful. There is still a month and in a month everything can happen, but what I am clear about is that LaLiga must be ended but not at any price. The first thing is the health of people and players.In soccer the main thing is the players, but financially it moves much more …Yes, you have to put yourself a little in the shoes of the sponsors and all those people who live from activities related to soccer, so if the measures work, LaLiga must end, if the Spanish economy starts and everything is in order, soccer you should not be left out. But as I say, health is the first thing and if the competition were to resume and contagions started again, drastic action would have to be taken.Within the unjust, if you cannot finish LaLiga, what would you do?I have it very clear, I would give the season as null and the next would start as we finished last year. It is an unfair measure, but we are in a situation of greater cause and we cannot do anything. It is true that three quarters of competition have been played and that many teams can believe that they have made merits to get the place they have today, but how many teams have risen or fallen places in eleven days? Look at Getafe last year, almost all year in the Champions League and in the last two days that place went to Valencia. “It was shocking to hear the nurses talk about people admitted to the ICU who had not awakened for 12 days” Ascents and descents?Neither champion and that all the teams kept the category they are in, no one would be excessively harmed or benefited.What is clear is that football with fans will take time to return, something that will affect all clubs, but perhaps a little more to entities such as Seville and Valencia whose stadiums are famous for how their people squeeze.Yes, it is true that these two stadiums – without detracting from the rest – intimidates the opponents. But in any case, what this is going to do is equalize the tables and that all the teams play on equal terms. I think the key is going to be that the templates can get all their talent, the quality of the templates is going to be the key. Palop on the resumption of LaLigacenter_img I suppose in that hour and a half everything would go through his mind. Palop on the resumption of LaLiga Palop on his stage entered by Coronavirus Yes, I was worried about staying in, but especially about my family.But his family was not infected, right?No, it was the great weight that I had on me because I had been with them when I was infected. Maybe I gave it to them but they have been asymptomatic, when we can do the tests we will find out.How is the disease experienced from within the hospital?Well, I was not in the ICU but just listening to the nurses was shocking, you heard them talk about people who had become ill and who after 12 days still did not wake up. They were quite complicated days, especially the first week where I could not even move and in which I only spun my head for fear that it would get worse, because the doctors made it clear to me that if I continued like this I would stay in the room But soon after it got worse they would take me to the ICU and intubate me.The day he published on networks that he had gone through the disease, I suppose his phone would smoke …Yes, it was very nice to see that so many people cared about me. From ex-teammates from Valencia and Seville to managers from Valencia, Villarreal etc. “If football were to resume and there were infections, I think drastic measures would have to be taken.”last_img read more

Senate Furious over Colleague’s ‘Arrest, Flogging’

first_imgThe Liberian Senate is furious over the arrest of Bomi County Senator Lahai G. Lansanah and his wife by police officers on allegation of electoral violence in the county.Both were arrested on Wednesday morning December 24,  in Tubmanburg, Bomi County and later transported to police headquarters in Monrovia for further investigation.According to Bomi County Senator Sando D. Johnson, Senator Lansanah and wife were picked-up from their home in Tubmanburg by police officers who claimed that “Lansanah masterminded a group of protestors, who gathered on the streets of Tubmanburg in protest of electoral fraud in favor of the official declared winner, Morris Saytumah.”Police also said: “Senator Lansanah was charged with criminal facilitation and breach of peace.”Lansanah is the incumbent who was defeated 8,857 to 6,837 votes in President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s native county.Senator Johnson told newsmen over the weekend that his colleague was arrested and beaten upon the orders of President Sirleaf and House Speaker J. Alex Tyler.“For a sitting senator to be disgraced and dragged to Monrovia such as what was done to Senator Lansanah tells anybody that the command came from higher up. In my mind, no police officer or commander can release such an order besides President Sirleaf, claimed Senator Johnson. That is why we’re not taking this lightly. This madness must stop in this country for once. Yesterday it was Nimba County Representative Prince Tokpah and today it is Senator Lansanah. I think the rivalry between the Executive and the Legislative branches of government has further deepened with this latest action of the police,” he said.House Speaker Tyler has since refuted the allegation, terming it as baseless and unrealistic.However, the Senate managed to secure the release of their colleague through the intervention of Maryland County Senator H. Dan Morais on the same day.Speaking to journalists after his release, Senator Lansanah denied his involvement alleging that there are big hands behind his arrest. “My wife and I were sitting at home when a band of ERU officers arrived at our residence and informed me that I was under arrest on Executive Order. “When my wife questioned the police why I was ordered arrested, a police officer slapped her and immediately took us away in a police van.“Upon arrival at the police Headquarters, I was never shown a charge sheet, contrary to claims by the police spokesman, Sam Collins.“As a sitting lawmaker, it is unfortunate that I was treated in such a manner. However, my lawyers are handling the matter,” the defeated Senator indicated.Meanwhile, the presiding officer of the Senate, Dan Morias, is expected to engage police authorities today in continuation of the case.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
