Lenoardo Bonucci decided to leave AC Milan and come back to Juventus as he had been playing there before he joined Rossoneri – but he could have easily become a member of Manchester United squad.The Italian centre-back spoke about his past choices as he claimed, according to Sports Mole: “Basically there have been some possibilities both with Manchester City and with Manchester United. With Manchester City when I received that offer (in 2016) I actually talked to the club, I talked to Juventus and we decided that it was good for me to stay and to keep on winning with Juventus.”Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“This year when I was told there was a possibility to go back home, to come back to Juventus I just stopped listening to any other offers and I decided to come back here.”“I feel at home. Here I really do my best, I just push myself to the maximum and that’s something at Milan I really didn’t manage, I didn’t succeed to achieve and that was probably because in my heart I had already made the decision that I wanted to go back home.
Manchester United great Gary Neville expects the upcoming six months to be critical as the club aim to rebuild once againThe Red Devils parted with manager Jose Mourinho on Tuesday following Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at Liverpool.The Portuguese coach was left frustrated by the lack of support he received in the summer transfer window and refused to make changes to the club in a similar manner to what Arsenal have done.“This next six months is a critical period of planning and restructuring,” Neville told Sky Sports.“I can’t for one minute believe that the board and owners are going to continue to operate the club off the pitch in the same way they have in the last few years.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“They need the best in class football leaders in that club, that’s people who have done it with the best clubs in the world, the best clubs in Europe who have operated recruitment departments, who have looked at the technical side of the game, academies to first team – Sir Alex Ferguson did that himself. He linked the whole club as one, and that’s not possible any more. The club’s too big, it’s huge.“They have got a fantastic commercial and operations side, a model that has been copied all around the world, and they deserve huge credit for that.“It’s innovative, it’s a machine. But on the football side, since Sir Alex and David Gill left, there’s been a huge void.“I think it’s time to put a more modern system in – sporting director, technical director – but the very best in class.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to replace Mourinho as interim manager at Old Trafford.
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek believes his loan spell at Crystal Palace last season has played a big role in his new role this seasonThe 22-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer following an impressive World Cup campaign for England, while starring at Palace on loan last term.After initially struggling for minutes under coach Maurizio Sarri, Loftus-Cheek has steadily become an integral member of the Chelsea team.“After a season at Palace I felt I really matured, I got to see what the Premier League was like playing week-in, week out,” said Loftus-Cheek, according to BT Sport.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“At Palace, we had to fight a lot. I really think I learned the way to fight and grind out games.“After the World Cup, I was ready to come back and fight for a place at Chelsea.“The start of the season was difficult but I’m getting chances now and I’m just looking to do the best I can.”Loftus-Cheek played the full 90 minutes of Chelsea’s 1-0 Carabao Cup quarter-final win against Bournemouth on Wednesday.
Paul Mariner believes Mesut Ozil hasn’t done anywhere near enough to deserve the lucrative deal he received from Arsenal last yearThe German playmaker signed a three-year contract on the final day of last January’s transfer window for a salary of £350,000-a-week.Considering they had lost star forward Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United at the time, news of Ozil’s renewal came as a welcome boost for Arsenal.Aside from the odd brilliant performance, however, Ozil has frequently failed to justify Arsenal’s decision to award him such a lucrative salary compared to the rest of the squad.“I’m dumbfounded why Arsenal would let Sanchez go,” said Mariner on ESPN.“Sanchez, when I used to go to Arsenal to watch him play, he was phenomenal.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“It didn’t pan out so much for United but they let Sanchez go, they’re letting [Aaron] Ramsey go for nothing! What’s going on?“And with Ozil, there’s something going on with Ozil that we don’t know about.“Arsenal decided to put all their eggs in one basket with Ozil, right? But what’s Ozil done for the club? Absolutely zero! Zero.“Yes, he’s a fantastic player, but he’s got to get fit. He’s never fit! There’s something going on with this kid that we don’t know about.”Mariner is a former defender who spent two years at Arsenal in the 1980s and recently coached MLS side Toronto FC until 2013.
With a stellar performance by Gabriel Jesus, Man City was able to get a very important victory against Wolves. Boly saw red in the first half.The match between Man City and Wolves on Monday was a crucial one, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad had a tremendous opportunity to keep impressing English football with their entertaining football but Gabriel Jesus had other plans.Also, fortune wasn’t exactly on Wolverhampton’s side this time around as they got one player sent-off before the 20th minute of the game and played with 10 players for the rest of the match.It was actually three separate mistakes that cost the visiting squad the victory, Manchester City seems to be completely back to their best form and they have managed to squeeze every single advantage from their opponents tonight.The game started with a poor defensive display from the left flank by Wolves, which permitted Leroy Sane to get enough advantage for a cross to Gabriel Jesus for Manchester City’s first goal if the evening at Etihad Stadium.Not even ten minutes had passed when Boly got a straight red card after a nasty challenge, this left Wolverhampton with very little chances of fighting for the three points against the current Premier League champions.+3 points 🤙🏽 Alô, mãe #mancity #alômâe #gratidão pic.twitter.com/MfMgO9TDUH— Gabriel Jesus (@gabrieljesus33) January 14, 2019If they hadn’t received that red card for Boly, perhaps Wolves would’ve had a bigger opportunity to play better and maybe even get a better result.Having one less player against one of the most competitive squads in the country is something that cannot happen for a squad such as Wolverhampton.From that moment forward, Manchester City dominated almost every aspect of the match, there was a moment in which Raheem Sterling was taken down by Ryan Bennett inside the box and a penalty was awarded for the Citizens.With Sergio Agüero unavailable to take the shot, Gabriel Jesus was given the responsibility and he didn’t disappoint with his shot. Manchester City was already up 2-0, they were winning with relative ease due to the superiority they had since the tenth minute of the match.Nuno Espirito Santo knew that the match was pretty much lost, but he urged all his players to come back with a lot more commitment and knowing that they needed to make a titanic effort with that two-goal disadvantage.Happy with that! ⚽️⚽️⚽️Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.🔵 3-0 🐺 #MCIWOL #mancity pic.twitter.com/3IJqhkTgvV— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 14, 2019The second half was actually much more difficult for Manchester City, Wolverhampton seemed to multiply its players due to the disadvantage they had on the pitch and many players made an extra effort to run way more than they had to in order to compete against the 11 Citizens.There was even a moment in which Mexican Raul Jimenez took the ball in midfield to lead a counter attack, he did everything right but his teammates disappointed after receiving the ball from him and wasting the opportunity by sending the shot to out of bounds.The most important play of the second half came near the end, when Kevin de Bruyne decided to take a long distance shot that got deviated by Coady inside the box and plunged in the back of the net for Manchester City’s third goal.This final 3-0 victory gives the Citizens a chance to stay very close to Liverpool, four-point behind to be exact.Pep Guardiola’s side believes that they actually have a good chance to turn things around by the end of the season, but the Reds will have to lose at least one more match and drop some more points in another one for that to happen.The title doesn’t depend on Manchester City anymore, but they won’t stop fighting until the end.12 goals in his last eight games at the Etihad for @gabrieljesus33.Home comforts 💙🔵 2-0 🐺 #MCIWOL #mancity pic.twitter.com/f9hEsVQSbJ— Manchester City (@ManCity) January 14, 2019What do you think about Manchester City’s performance against Wolves this Monday?

Hon Goldray Ewing, the member for Blue Hills said passing the National Agenda bill with near unanimous support in the House of Assembly in the first two years of the PNP was apparently a waste of time. “This would have included many think tank sessions and presentations, in the areas of strategic planning, immigration, public health, economic diversification, crime fighting measures, crown land policy, utilities and national resources, large infrastructure development, population policy and constitutional review.” The PDM Member in a Friday media release explained: “This is very important to the planning of sustainable future growth of the country, setting ethical standards and lifting the quality of living for all our people… But because the National Agenda was never adopted or implemented , even though it passed through the House of Assembly with 99% of the votes, it was still pushed aside, and so I pressed on.” House of Assembly debate today begins at 10am and is aired on national radio.

The country’s lone electricity provider yesterday announced the deal which CEO Eddinton Powell says will not cost more and will not risk the quality of the power being supplied. Eddinton Powell, CEO FortisTCI: “The Company is very enthusiastic about the potential of this project and partnering with this potential IPP in the generation of green energy. This project, and soon to be launched renewable energy programs for residential customers, will usher in a new era of green energy in the TCI. We know that this will not happen overnight, and we realize that this is still an expensive proposition. However, the Company believes that renewable sources of energy will play an increasing role in the Country’s energy mix…” FortisTCI says in the near future, this apparent second phase of an initiative started a year ago with Urban Green Environment Ltd will mean both utility and residential scale solar systems can be supported with the solar systems interconnected to the grid within proposed limits. For now, wind power is out because of some restraints placed on FortisTCI by the Planning Department; those restraints were not named, but this new MOU with Urban Green Environment Ltd is being hailed as a revolutionary next step.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 31, 2018 – Nassau – “You can’t buy heritage,” says motor sports icon David McLaughlin, “and no one has a heritage in motor sport like The Bahamas. Use it well and you’ll be amazed at the international attention.”McLaughlin, a former race car driver turned major classic car event organizer and the first FIA director for Caribbean motor sport development and road safety, felt compelled to comment after back-to-back reminders of the pivotal role Nassau played in race car history.“Dan Gurney, a legendary race car driver and a true pioneer in the sport, died this week,” McLaughlin said. “Gurney was the first driver to win in every category of racing — Formula One, IndyCar and NASCAR. There was not an event in motor sport that he did not participate in and not a major event that either he or the team he created did not win. Only Mario Andretti and Juan Pablo Montoya could approach the same class of achievement and fame. And when Dan died of complications from pneumonia last Sunday (January 14), what photo accompanied the news around the world? It was a grinning, handsome Dan Gurney holding the trophy he won in December 1962 in Nassau Speed Week.”The world remembers Nassau, Bahamas, as the seat of history in Formula One and Ferrari racing, McLaughlin said. But The Bahamas is not taking advantage of its important heritage in a sport that is watched by more than 400 million people.The second reminder was a magazine article in MOTOR SPORT, the premier British motor racing magazine. The piece traced the history of the famed Ford GT40, the car Henry Ford II built to beat Ferrari when Ferrari would not sell out to him. The car that would go on to win the grueling 24-hour Le Mans was first unveiled in 1964 Nassau Race Week.“Nassau Race Week 1964 marked the first time that an American car beat a European car, another piece of motor sport history that is still being remembered around the world and cited regularly outside The Bahamas,” said McLaughlin. “That car today would be worth $15 million.”Nassau Race Week, which was held between 1954 and 1966 in Oakes Field, was the highlight of the social season and drew CEOs and stars of screen and industry from all over along with hundreds of spectators who lined the streets. McLaughlin chaired the revival editions from 2011-2015 but without a proper circuit, the events were more glamour than speed though they did attract international attention along with the presence of the legendary Sir Stirling Moss.“If you Google Nassau Speed Week, you get 1.5 million references, including a very extensive entry on Wikipedia with individual chapters on its history, the revival, all the drivers,” said McLaughlin, whose role with the governing body of motor sport, the FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) includes a road safety initiative.“The Bahamas has this incredible history and heritage and yet there is no race track now, no museum, almost no recognition,” said McLaughlin. “There is a world of opportunity waiting.”Release: DPA News Related Items:
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 24, 2018 – Nassau – The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture announced, on February 21, 2018, that it will be holding its second Culture and Youth in the Park event on Saturday, February 24, from 3pm to 7pm, at the Father Marshall Cooper Park, in the area of Centreville.“The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture believes that we have a commitment to engage young people — particularly in our historic communities,” Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard said at the press conference held that day, at the Ministry’s University Drive Headquarters.The Culture and Youth in the Park programme is a part of community outreach and a way to encourage and recognize the youth and culturally-minded persons throughout The Bahamas.“Many of the challenges that our young people are facing, we believe would’ve been worse had it not been for the many organizations — including church or faith based organizations, the civic and social organizations — who continue to intervene in these communities,” he added. “We want parents and young people to know the various organizations that they can join and be a part of and support.”Minister Pintard noted that a part of that exercise is to expose the community to those types of organizations.“At the same time, it’s important that we showcase the talent in these communities,” Minister Pintard said. “We believe Bahamians are as talented as anyone else and anywhere else, and to the extent that young people in our historic communities can see gifted young persons just like themselves performing and speaking to them about real issues they are facing in their community; it inspires them.”Cultural Affairs Officer Mrs. Terez Davis-Nixon said that the Ministry is “so excited” to once again present an opportunity for persons to showcase “who we are as Bahamians.”Youth Officer John Ronald Darville said that the youth component of the progamme seeks primarily to provide opportunities for youth engagement.“Statistics have proven that young persons who are involved in holistic activities are less likely to be engaged in deviant behaviour; and so a thrust, based on the mandate that has been given to us, has been to bring to the community level youth engagement, organizations, programs and projects that may be facilitated by persons in various youth organizations that are registered with the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture — to provide the process of registration for persons in the community who may not be engagd in a youth organization or activity,” Mr. Darville said.Project Coordinator Henry Higgins added that a number of groups and performers from the Centreville area will be taking part in the event, including the 80-plus-member Centreville Primary School Choir, the Fort Fincastle youth group.Mr. Higgins pointed out there will also be a Junkanoo rush-out and Bahamian talents from the wider community taking part in the event.“Leroy the ‘Limbo’ King is coming to perform our limbo dancing and we have Sammie Star, one of our great musicians and singers, will be there as well, along with Mr. J, who does a lot of his music based on educating children to stay in school,” he said.Mr. Higgins pointed out that all of the craft and vendors will be from the Centreville area. “What we are doing is showcasing the culture of Centreville on that day,” he said.“Part of our role, we believe, is to inspire our people,” Minister Pintard reiterated. “As challenging as things are, we know that things are in fact — through the grace of God, through our hard work and collaboration — going to get a lot better.”By: Eric RosePhoto Caption: The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture announces, on February 21, 2018, its Culture and Youth in the Park event, to be held on Saturday, February 24, from 3pm to 7pm, at the Father Marshall Cooper Park, in the area of Centreville.

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta reckons Samir Nasri has plenty to offer them and hopes he will be given time to regain his fitnessThe 31-year-old midfielder has been without a club since ending a disappointing stay in Turkey with Antalyaspor in January.Although it’s been 18 months since Nasri last played competitive football due to the ban he received from FIFA for breaching World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules in 2016.But the Frenchman is now training at West Ham in a bid to convince them of awarding him a contract.Zabaleta is aware of what his former Manchester City teammate is capable of and is certain Nasri can still deliver on the field.“Manuel [Pellegrini] knows Samir very well from his time at Manchester City,” Zabaleta told Sky Sports.“We need players with his quality, especially because also we lost two key players who brought quality into this team – Manuel Lanzini in the summer before the World Cup and then [Jack] Wilshere, who is very close to coming back to the team.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“On the ball [Nasri] is fantastic. He is one of those players who can give to the team some possession and play between the lines to help the attacking players to create chances.”The Argentine hopes that Nasri is given time to prove his fitness levels at West Ham.“Samir needs a bit of time,” Zabaleta said.“He has not been football training for more than a year but sometimes those players are technically very good so he probably needs to focus more on his fitness levels than his passing and all this.“We know Samir and his quality. When he is fit he is on a different level. He is a fantastic player.“Hopefully he can reach his best fitness level. He has to feel physically good because we know that the Premier League is so demanding physically.”
The Belgian midfielder is enjoying his time with the German Bundesliga leaders and is hopeful he can lift a trophy at the end of the season.Belgian midfielder Axel Witsel joined Borussia Dortmund this season.And he’s enjoying his time with the German Bundesliga leaders so far.“Everything’s gone well for me,” he was quoted by the Bundesliga website.“I’m playing for one of the biggest and greatest clubs in Europe.”“The team, the environment, the fans… everything here is just brilliant and emotionally charged. I’m very thankful and really happy that I’m now part of this outstanding team,” he added.“I have a lot of plans here, and I obviously want to try to win a title or two in the medium term with BVB. That’s why I play football.”He debuted professionally in 2006 with Standard Liege in his native Belgium.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.He moved in 2011 to Portuguese club Benfica, and the next year he was playing in the Russian Premier League with Zenit Saint Petersburg.In 2016 he spent two years with Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian, and in the summer he returned to top-flight football.“And I love the fact that the people here are so crazy about football. The whole region is mad about this club,” he said about Dortmund fans.“We knew how hard it would be to win in Leipzig,” he commented about the team’s latest matches.“They were unbeaten at home until we played them, and had the best defensive record in the league.”“In contrast, we were missing a lot of center backs, and even Marco Reus at the last minute. The way we won will give us even more self-confidence,” he explained.“Although they were three big points, we can’t let up even slightly. Hannover will be hard enough. They’re fighting for survival, and in the first game against them we only managed a draw.”

Elenia Amaya, ASA/WISHH Country Representative Fradbelin Escarraman and others visit the community kitchen where soy-based meals have significantly reduced malnutrition.The American Soybean Association’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (ASA/WISHH) hosted Elenia Amaya on a Soy Nutrition See for Yourself trip in Guatemala this month.Amaya works in El Salvador’s Ministry of Health and is responsible for administering social programs in the country. ASA/WISHH brought Amaya to Guatemala to visit the factory that is currently providing the Government of El Salvador with a soy-based beverage that is distributed to social program participants.The Guatemalan company producing the soy-based beverage imports over 4,000 metric tons of U.S. soy flour per year that is used in the production of foods and beverages for government social programs, as well as in products for sale on the commercial market. During her trip, Amaya also heard presentations on the value of soy nutrition and visited a community in Guatemala where malnutrition has been reduced among children from 80 percent to 48 percent through the usage of a soy-based meal program.Upon Amaya’s return to El Salvador, convinced of the value of soy nutrition, the Ministry of Health again placed an order for the U.S. soy-based beverage to continue to be used in the country’s social programs.
The American Soybean Association (ASA) and other agriculture groups sent a letter to Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts this week in support of the Farm Credit System.The groups thanked Roberts for scheduling the upcoming hearing on credit in rural America and reiterated important role the Farm Credit System plays in meeting the needs of growers across the country.“As you know, prices of agricultural commodities have increasingly come under pressure. Concerns are growing that we may be entering a prolonged period of instability in the agricultural economy,” the letter states. “Credit availability in good times is singularly important to our respective members. Credit availability in tough times may well mean the difference between producers staying on the land or being forced to abandon their operations.”The groups also state that the Farm Credit System and commercial banks work together to ensure agricultural producers and their industry partners have access to financial tools that are vital to their success.Click here to read the letter.
A Wednesday afternoon fire north of Washougal caused $300,000 damage to a home and its contents, according to the Clark County Fire Marshal’s office.The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, said Clark County Deputy Fire Marshal Richard Martin.“I’m still doing interviews, working on some loose ends,” Martin said Friday.Staff and volunteers with East County Fire & Rescue rushed to 530 S.E. Blair Road in Washougal at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday.They found the house fully engulfed and battled it from the outside.By 5 p.m., Fire Chief Scott Koehler, the incident commander, radioed to firefighters a warning that they were getting tired, the building couldn’t be saved and was collapsing — and to “be careful.” When Martin arrived at dusk, the destroyed structure was still unsafe to enter. A car parked outside the house had been destroyed by heat from the blaze.The nearest house to the downed structure is about 100 yards away.The property, owned by Jon and Billinda Jantzer. is assessed at about $355,000, with the house assessed at about $224,000, according to county records.
