It has been an official public holiday since 1994. During 1845-1917, over 140,000 Indians were transported here, who brought with them a new culture.Celebrations this year reportedly include cultural shows, parades, patriotic songs, exhibition, chutney songs, dances, folk (Sohar, Khajari, Bhojpuri, etc.) songs, awards distribution, fashion show, concert, Bhangra-Giddah, etc., to mark the 166th anniversary of the arrival of East Indians to this country.

The Nigerian International played for Auxerre in France before moving to Italy where he played for both Inter and AC Milan, eventually landing in England on loan and then moving on to Germany and Serbia.He was best known for incredible hair and his green and white braids made him famous in the 1998 World Cup, also playing for his country in the 2002 edition and winning the Olympics in 1996.But for all he achieved in reality on the pitch the defender, who could play on the left as well as in the centre, was arguably known best for being available for free at the beginning of Championship Manager 01/02- arguably the best version of the football sim, thanks in some part to nostalgia:Of course we can’t boil all his career down simply to a game but it’s true that anyone in their late 20s and early 30s, possibly beyond, who loved the serial of games must have had a save with West.Whether you started with a lower league team or one of Europe’s elite there was always the chance to sign the former Inter man on a free transfer at the beginning of the game and there was a chance you’d bag him. In another reality somewhere, Super Eagles legend Taribo West became the greatest defender that the world has ever seen.Whether that reality existed in your computer or a friend’s it definitely happened. We wish the greatest free transfer the game has ever seen a happy birthday!Footballers have a lot to thank Jean-Marc Bosman for.

first_imgFalling at the final hurdle once more would be even more heartbreaking for the Reds after missing out on the Premier League title by the finest of margins to City despite posting a club record 97 points.”If I sit here in four years, I am pretty confident we will have one title,” said Klopp on his first day at Anfield.Klopp’s impression was that if he had not delivered silverware in that time then he would not last more than four years in the job. Saturday’s meeting in Madrid is his last chance to deliver on that confidence. But even if he loses, Klopp will still be revered rather than relieved of his duties for putting Liverpool back among the European elite. The five-time European champions have by definition had many great nights in continental competition.But beating Barcelona 4-0 in their Champions League semi-final, second leg to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit may be the best of all.”A moment like Barcelona is worth more than silverware. Wow! That’s exactly the picture we want to draw for the outside world, this is Liverpool,” said Klopp.  London: The transformation of Liverpool and Tottenham’s fortunes under Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino has so far been measured in progress rather than trophies. That will all change for the winner of Saturday’s Champions League final with one of the two claiming the biggest prize in Europe. Klopp has not won any silverware since arriving at Anfield in October 2015, while Pochettino is yet to claim any trophy in his coaching career.However, the fact that Klopp and Pochettino are two of the highest rated coaches in world football is evidence if any was needed that there is more to good management than lifting trophies.Klopp has come close on several occasions. The German has lost three finals as Liverpool boss, on penalties to Manchester City in the League Cup and Sevilla in the Europa League during his first season in 2015/16 before fortune favoured Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League final.

first_imgKolkata: On a high after 12 outings, fourth-placed Bengal Warriors want to make the best use of the home leg, beginning here on Saturday in their bid for an elusive title in the Pro-Kabaddi League, coach BC Ramesh said.Bengal Warriors, who have 40 points, 14 less than leaders Dabang Delhi K C, take on Gujarat Fortunegiants in their opening game of the home stretch. They will play a total of four matches here.“We have strengthened all the departments this time and Maninder Singh is leading by example. We have 100 per cent confidence of making the playoffs and winning the title this time. But we have to be patient and play tactically,” coach Ramesh said.The biggest plus has been the addition of Iranian all-rounder Mohammad Esmaeil, who has been brought on place of Korean raider Jang Kun Lee.“He is a versatile player and can play both as a raider and defender. Now we have a compact team with Singh showing the way. We have got the right ingredients to go all the way,” the coach said pointing out Singh’s overall show as he is currently the top four raider with 95 points.But it’s not that Bengal Warriors do not have any concerns as the coach wanted all his players to take up responsibilities to kill the close contests.The Kolkata franchise were unbeaten in first five matches but faltered in the dying minutes to lose four matches while tying two.“We have to work on team bonding as there has been a lack of communication between the raiders and defenders in the dying minutes. I will make them watch previous videos and hope that we won’t repeat the same in the home leg. We want to win all matches here,” Ramesh said.The second match of the day will see Dabang Delhi take on Haryana Steelers.

first_img Published on January 25, 2016 at 2:20 pm Contact Paul: | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (13-8, 3-5 Atlantic Coast) hosts Notre Dame (14-5, 5-2) on Thursday night in the Carrier Dome. The Orange is coming off an eight-point loss to No. 13 Virginia on Sunday after winning three straight.Fighting Irish head coach Mike Brey discussed the upcoming matchup with SU on the ACC coaches teleconference on Monday. He spoke about the status of UND guard Demetrius Jackson, his potential replacement Rex Pflueger and Syracuse’s Michael Gbinije.On Jackson’s hamstring injuryNotre Dame is preparing as if Jackson won’t play due to a pulled hamstring injury he suffered on Saturday, Brey said. The junior point guard is second in the ACC with five assists per game while also averaging 16.6 points. He was selected to the preseason All-ACC first team before the season started.Brey said Jackson will be undergoing an MRI Monday afternoon to confirm the injury is not more serious than the initial diagnosis. It’s a 3-4 day recovery, Brey said, but he wants to be cautious Jackson doesn’t come back too soon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I don’t want to bring him back too quick. I know how guys are, ‘I’m ready, I’m ready,’” Brey said. “I think we have to be really careful with this because you want to get it healed.”On Rex Pflueger’s recent playPflueger’s recent play makes the potential loss of Jackson more manageable for Notre Dame. The freshman has played 23, 18 and 32 minutes, respectively, in the past three games. Before that stretch, he had only played more than 10 minutes once. He’s racked up three steals and is averaging 6.7 points in those games.Brey said Pflueger has always played well defensively, but now is more dangerous being that his offensive game is coming around. After Jackson left on Saturday against Boston College, Pflueger continued finding his role in UND’s offense with the increased minutes.“We take such pride in taking care of the ball and our assist-to-turnover ratio, and that was new territory for him this preseason. He has come a long way there, and his shot selection,” Brey said. “… I thought it was a big day for another step of development, but he is really a key for us, and he’s really a key with Jackson out.”On GbinijeBrey said he likes to recognize when transfers play well since he was a transfer himself, moving from Northwestern State to George Washington. The combination of Gbinije’s ability to hit the 3 and drive to the basket is what makes him dangerous, Brey pointed out.Gbinije is averaging 37.8 minutes per game, but Brey said as an experienced fifth-year player, he’s more than capable of handling it. His 17.4 points per game is third in the ACC.The biggest concern the Fighting Irish faces in defending Gbinije, Brey said, is when he breaks down defenses off the dribble and uses ball screens to get into the lane.“He’s big, he draws fouls, and he has an ability to get rolling from the 3-point line,” Brey said. “But he’s a man, you’re talking about an old guard who’s seen it all. It’s a great challenge for us Thursday with the way he’s playing.” Commentslast_img read more
