Man Utd midfielder Lingard happy working with ‘great Ole’ againby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is delighted to be playing for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer again.The pair worked together with United reserves.“Ole is great,“ said Lingard.“He is great at one-on-one [conversations] with players. He has great man-management. He will always speak to you and tell you what to do.”“When I am on the right wing he likes me to come inside and make things happen. He gives me licence and freedom to do that.”“Ole knew me from [when he coached] the Reserves and knows what kind of a player I am. When I was a young player he was always there on hand to give advice and help the youngsters out. He helped me out as I was coming through and I learned a lot from him.”“He’s very special to this club and for this club. He knows where Man United has to be and that is at the very top and putting in performances like we did [against Bournemouth].””We are enjoying playing football and winning games three, four or five-one.

There stood once a Mandir. There stood once a Masjid. Today, neither is there a Mandir nor is there a Masjid. Now, tell what should be there, Mandir or Masjid? One set wants Mandir. The other set says Masjid. The question repeats itself, again and again. Without fail. In private. In public. In court. In Parliament. In cabinet meetings. In newspapers. In television studios. In tea stalls. In drawing rooms. Now, tell what should be there, Mandir or Masjid? Also Read – A special kind of bondLitigation. Strife. Death. Destruction. Still, the question is asked: Now, tell what should be there, Mandir or Masjid? The Supreme Court appointed panel’s brief is to mediate an answer to the question. Not that mediation hasn’t been tried before. Three or maybe four times. Every time a failure. The top court believes one more try will not hurt anybody. Not everybody’s convinced. But everybody’s going along because it’s the honourable Supreme Court’s decision and the honourable Supreme Court cannot be wrong, ever. The best thing is for the honourable Supreme Court itself to make the decision to the all-important question that repeats itself. But, then, it runs the risk of being reduced to dishonourable by a section. Unthinkable! Also Read – Insider threat managementThe problem is the honourable Supreme Court does not want to find itself in such a dishonourable situation. That being said, the issue has been hanging fire for so long, only a dishonourable (to one party to the dispute) decision can bust the Catch 22. It appears the honourable Supreme Court isn’t anywhere in that dishonourable class. So, the three-member panel to mediate a dishonourable compromise (dishonourable to one party) of sorts. Let’s call the spade a spade. Not beat around the bush. Stop being politically correct. Not act shy, coy! One of the parties to the dispute will have to back off and accept a dishonourable exit. Will it happen? Already, dishonourable voices are being raised. If somebody doesn’t like the presence of one particular individual in the panel, somebody else is insisting the mediators shouldn’t miss that there’s one irrefutable parameter paramount to the dispute. That a Mandir existed at the spot and ‘Mandir Wahin Banayenge’. The guy who’s talking of the irrefutable parameter is Hindu. The chap who doesn’t like one particular panel member is Muslim. This second gentleman is a barrister of law and the other one is a pretender in law, an economist never economical with words. Both have inserted themselves into the dispute and are capable of raising hell if one of them doesn’t fancy the final decision. Mediation is not their cup of joy. They share qualities: Intransigent. Stubborn. Obdurate. Unbending. Obstinate. Inveterate. Rigid. Unbending. The Mandir-Masjid issue is essentially a title dispute into which archaeologists dug deep and found more than dirt. But the intransigence and unyielding obduracy is so deep, even proof of existence did not make a difference. A high court took the bull by the horns to try and break the conundrum, but then there was the remedy – the honourable Supreme Court. Ha! The honourable Supreme Court is playing safe. It doesn’t want blood on its hands. It is refusing to do its duty. Lay it out in black & white. The chap with the irrefutable parameter and the guy who doesn’t like one of the mediators because he has a couple of Hindu prefixes to his name, both should be made to pipe down, forced to make dishonourable exits, put on their compromising hats. But then, there is the article Freedom of Expression. So, the top court’s hands are tied. How about posting a posse outside both these gentlemen’s pads? To keep an eye on them and, at the same time, provide them protection! They cannot raise Cain over that, can they? The point is, now that it’s been ruled that mediation will act icebreaker, perceived hell-raisers, like the two gentlemen, should be taken care of, gently reminded that they will be held to account for making irresponsible statements with the entitlement of Freedom of Expression. The top court cannot leave everything to the government and vice versa. A show of spines is in order. The icing on the cake is if the mediators succeed and both parties agree to one party making a dishonourable exit for the honourable apex court to make a decision that will be honoured, then this stubborn issue of incalculable obduracy, unpersuadable tenacity, will be settled once and for all and no political party will be able to use it for electoral advantage. The discomfort is already there for all to see on the faces of spokespersons of this and that party. It’s time nobody asks ever again the question: “Now, tell what should be there, Mandir or Masjid?” (The views are strictly personal)
New Delhi: Opposition parties have started a coordinated training programme for their counting agents all over the country to prevent any alleged EVM manipulation by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the course of counting of votes on May 23.The last phase of the Lok Sabha election will take place on May 19. For the proposed exercise, 21 opposition parties have already deferred their conclave before the counting of votes on 23rd May. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange frameworkEarlier, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had proposed a conclave for opposition parties before the counting of votes. However, his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP Supremo Mayawati requested the Telugu Desam Party chief to defer the meeting for the time being. In view of the unfolding political scenario, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata also called for a strict vigil during the time of counting of votes. “Don’t be complacent with the overwhelming response of the people against NDA,” she stated.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Vivek Tankha have prepared a list of queries for all the counting agents to understand the technicalities of the counting process through EVM and to match with VVPAT wherever possible. The leaders are in touch with all the state leaders who are given sole charge for overseeing the counting process. They have prepared a checklist for verifying the correct process of counting of votes. These checklists are sent to the state headquarters and state leaders will hold a training programme for the counting agents two days before the counting. In the six phases of polling, there were reports of EVM glitches from many states. In some cases, defective EVMs were replaced but not all of them were VVPAT-linked. In some booths in Uttar Pradesh, VVPAT machines were not even seen. Last month, the Supreme Court had increased VVPAT verification to five random Electronic Voting Machines in each Assembly segment/constituency. In case of general elections, VVPAT slips of five EVMs in each Assembly segment of a Parliamentary Constituency would be subject to physical counting. In state assembly elections, the VVPAT verification would extend to five random EVMs in each Assembly constituency. The 21 opposition parties wanted that at least 25 per cent VVPATs should be counted which was rejected by the Supreme Court. The opposition parties are planning to train their counting agents. Whenever irregularities are noticed they should immediately lodge a formal protest with the Returning Officer and inform party managers immediately. Congress party has prepared a special cell with some technologists who will monitor the counting process from the “war room” of the party.
After years of playing it cool in the free-agency game, the San Antonio Spurs entered the market this month and were the clear-cut winners. That probably shouldn’t be a surprise: Winning is pretty much what the Spurs do. And these summer victories have them poised for many more once the season starts.The Spurs nabbed LaMarcus Aldridge, the best (realistically)1There was little chance that Memphis’s Marc Gasol or San Antonio’s own Kawhi Leonard would switch teams, and while Cleveland’s LeBron James hasn’t officially re-signed, it’s basically a foregone conclusion that he’ll be back with the Cavs. available free agent of the summer, negotiated new contracts for essential wings Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, convinced Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili to each forgo retirement in favor of another crack at a championship, and even managed to snag veteran forward David West for $11 million less than he would have made had he opted into the final season of his contract with the Indiana Pacers.In other words, it was a good week for Gregg Popovich.To measure just how good it was — or how dominant next season’s Spurs figure to be, I dusted off last year’s preseason projection system (fueled by Real Plus-Minus), plugged projected RPM values into Rotoworld’s depth charts, and (unscientifically) estimated how much playing time each player will receive.2Basically, I looked at last year’s minutes per game for each player, as well as how many minutes per game were logged by others who will be at the same position on his 2015-16 team, eventually ballparking a reasonable figure. (In other words, it was definitely not scientific.) Here’s a first pass at how good San Antonio could be next season:That predicted power rating of +8.9 means the Spurs are talented enough to win about 60 games,3That estimate is based on the Spurs’ being in the Western Conference. Because the West is (somewhat significantly) better than the East, it takes more talent for a team to get the same number of wins out West than it would if they were in the East. which is very high for a true talent projection. A lot of luck and variance lurks out there, ready to make a team’s record different from its underlying skill, so most teams that win 60 or more games don’t actually possess 60-win talent. (Using Statistical Plus/Minus talent ratings, I found that only 18 percent of teams that won 60 or more games in a season4If a season was shorter than 82 games, I prorated it. since 1979-80 truly had 60-win talent on their rosters.) But this Spurs roster appears to really have that much talent.It’s a formidable group that stacks up against any of the other teams across the league — even the defending champions in Oakland. To test this, I ran similar projections for a handful of other notable teams that were either good last season and didn’t lose much talent over the offseason (like the Warriors) or have enjoyed an eventful offseason thus far.5The official list of teams I checked, in order of projected 2015-16 quality: the Spurs, Warriors, Cavaliers, Thunder, Rockets, Raptors, Grizzlies, Clippers, Wizards, Mavericks, Bucks, Hawks and — just for fun — the Knicks. (As a sanity check: Yes, the Knicks are projected to be very bad.) Here were the best of those squads:According to these preliminary projections, the Spurs are excellent, although they’re not a super-team. (In other words, they’re not a juggernaut that looks poised to blow away the rest of the league.) In the eyes of RPM, they’re essentially tied with Golden State now as the best team in basketball, closing the gap that existed between the two teams last season.But San Antonio and Golden State do seem to be well ahead of the rest of the league. Cleveland ranks third among teams I checked but is still four to five wins behind the leaders, according to the power ratings. (Oklahoma City is two to three wins behind Cleveland; Houston is one to two wins behind Oklahoma City; and then there’s Toronto and a distant group containing Memphis and the Clippers.)The Spurs were already among the class of the league before strengthening their roster this summer. While San Antonio may not shatter any records, its surgical dissection of the free-agent market has left it with arguably the best team in basketball.
Ohio State men’s hockey senior goaltender Brady Hjelle knew how important last Saturday’s game at Alaska was for him and his team.Coming off a 6-1 loss against the Nanooks the night before, Hjelle surrendered four goals in 30 minutes of playing time before being pulled in favor of freshman Collin Olsen.Hjelle said he just needed to put that game behind him.“Friday night was a bad game for me, and we didn’t play well as a team either,” he said. “You just gotta learn to put that behind you and be ready to go.”He did just that, stopping 26 of 27 Alaska shots the following night, playing the entire game and helping the Buckeyes earn a 3-1 victory.The two teams entered the final period tied, 1-1, and Hjelle did his part to keep the Nanooks from scoring as he recorded 12 saves in the stanza.OSU coach Mark Osiecki called Saturday a great response from Friday night’s loss for Hjelle and the rest of the team.“Our guys played extremely well in front of (Brady). He didn’t have a very strong game on Friday along with our team,” Osiecki said. “His response was just how he showed up and played-very businesslike on Saturday after Friday.”Osiecki even compared OSU to last season’s Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, citing how aggressive the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions were due to having such a solid goalie in net behind them.“That’s kind of how our team is right now with Brady,” Osiecki said. “Our guys can play aggressive, they can play excited for each other and take opportunities on the offensive side of things. They know they have a brick wall back there.”Freshman defenseman Sam Jardine agreed with Osiecki, saying it makes playing the game a lot easier knowing Hjelle is behind him defending. He said his teammates still want to do their part to make their goaltender’s job easier.“Regardless of how good he’s playing we want to do the best job that we can blocking shots and eliminating quality chances,” Jardine said. “I think our (defensive) core is starting to take a lot of pride in that and obviously our success all year has started with Brady.”Jardine said Hjelle has an upbeat character and is at his best when he is playing with high energy.Despite this season being only his second at OSU, the 5-foot-11 senior from International Falls, Minn., said he is learning more about being a leader with each passing day. That leadership is something he tries to show daily on the ice, but not necessarily with his voice.“I’m not the most vocal guy on the team,” Hjelle, who came to OSU after playing two years at the University of Minnesota Duluth, said. “I’m not afraid to speak up when it’s needed, but I’m more of a lead-by-example guy. I just try to come to the rink every day and work hard.”That hard work is being recognized, as Hjelle received his fifth weekly award of the season when he was named the CCHA Warrior Goaltender of the Week on Feb. 4. The accolade came following OSU’s series split against then No. 9-ranked Notre Dame when Hjelle had a league-high 74 saves, including a career-high 45 in the second game of the weekend, helping his team skate to a 2-2 overtime tie with the Irish.Osiecki said he was happy with the way that his goaltender stood tall and defended the high number of scoring chances from Notre Dame so his team could earn a point in the CCHA standings.Hjelle’s 1.78 goals-against average is good for ninth in the NCAA, while his .942 save percentage ranks fifth. Despite the individual awards, he said they are a result of his teammates and their play.“(The awards) look better on the team,” Hjelle said. “It’s what they are doing in front of me, and it makes my job a lot easier.”As his senior season starts to wind down, Hjelle is excited for this weekend’s series at home because he knows the importance of the two games.“We have a big opportunity in front of us,” Hjelle said. “It would be really nice if we could win out, but we are playing some really tough teams and just gotta bring our best effort every game.”OSU (12-12-6, 11-7-4-1 CCHA) hosts Western Michigan (18-7-5, 14-5-3-1 CCHA) Friday at 7:05 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center.
Jurgen Klopp believes that Liverpool’s 2-1 win over rivals Manchester City will not bear any special significance on their upcoming campaignAfter losing to his former club Borussia Dortmund in disappointing fashion in the first game of their US tour, Klopp saw his Liverpool side bounce back with an impressive second-half display to defeat City 2-1 in New Jersey.Things hadn’t actually got off to a good start for Liverpool with the players struggling to reach their usually high standards in the opening 45 minutes before Leroy Sane broke the deadlock after the break to hand City the lead.But the returning Mohamed Salah equalised, just 52 seconds after he was brought on as a substitute, before Sadio Mane then sealed the win for Liverpool with a 94th-minute penalty.The victory could be seen as a strong message towards Liverpool’s title ambitions this year after defeating last season’s Premier League champions.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…But, as far as Klopp is concerned, it was just another preseason game.The German told the club website: “I’m pretty sure Pep [Guardiola] was a little bit angry because he doesn’t like, or he hates [losing], like I do. I was not a bit happy about the Dortmund game, even when there was a lot more good situations than today, especially in the first half.“If you lose a game, you lose a game. How can you be happy? And if we win a game, that’s cool. That it was against Man City, we lost against Dortmund so what does that mean? We won against City, what does that mean?”He added: “It’s pre-season, it’s really not important. The game for us was very important, but it is not a sign in the direction or whatever. It’s only a game we played and a lot of good moments which we can use and a lot of bad moments we can work on. That’s all.”Liverpool are now in seventh place in the International Champions Cup table and will next face Manchester United on Saturday at the Michigan Stadium.

We must learn from the errors we made this evening.”

The altercation was called violent and happened around 8:30pm, both men were reportedly treated at clinic and released. One had been stabbed, the other struck with a bottle. On Sunday morning, reports say the stabbed man was found outside of his home in Delectable Bay, dead. One online report is calling it the first murder in the history of Acklins; what is certain is that news of murder has never come from the quiet island – which is home to settlements with names like Lovely and Delectable – in recent Bahamian history.
