Mike Summerbee credits Pep Guardiola with revolutionising English football

first_imgShare on Messenger Share on LinkedIn Pep Guardiola Manchester City news Share via Email Reuse this content Share on Facebook Topics Share on Pinterest Share on WhatsApp Mike Summerbee has praised Manchester City’s total football style under Pep Guardiola, in which every player from goalkeeper to striker is technically astute.Summerbee was a key part of the City team that were champions 50 years ago under the management team of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. The 75-year-old, now a club ambassador, believes that while the 1967-68 title winners had only a handful of star turns, Guardiola’s Premier League champions are filled with them.“Pep has a certain way,” said Summerbee. “I watch them train occasionally and I think he has revolutionised football in this country. He has a group of people who think and play [his] way – they all have great skills on the ball, first touches, and know what to do with the ball.“They play in a small area where you have to think on your feet. They do that until they see a gap, and then it’s like opening the lock on a safe. Every player is so skilful. In our day you probably had four players who were really top-notch, who could open the game up, but nowadays, everyone can play. All can control and pass the ball.“It’s rare you see a misplaced pass. But conditions today suit the way it’s played. You cannot compare the side I played in with the side playing now – it’s impossible.”While Summerbee does not like comparisons, he believes some from his era could play under Guardiola. “You could put certain players in this era and they could play – you could put George Best in it, or Colin Bell, or Francis Lee. They could play that way as they had that first touch.” The latter two were team-mates in the side that pipped Best’s Manchester United to the title on the final day.“If you want to compare, they look alike and they play similarly: Colin Bell and [Kevin] De Bruyne. Two big engines, they can pass the ball, have pace. If any players out of this side and my side compare, it’s those two.”Allison was, like Guardiola, an innovator. “He could change the way you played,” said Summerbee. “At Swindon I played as an extra full-back – but in my first game [for City] against Middlesbrough, I laid on the equaliser for Jimmy Murray to score.“On the coach Malcolm told me: ‘We’ve just spent £35,000 on you and we didn’t buy a full-back. We bought a winger. Don’t come back past the halfway line because you can’t defend.’“He told me that beating my man and crossing it was all he wanted me to do – he put it into my brain. He had the same idea as Pep, that the best form of defence is attack. We had some good defenders – Tony Book, Alan Oakes, Glyn Pardoe until he broke his leg, and Mike Doyle, all top-flight players.”Summerbee also pointed to Guardiola’s common touch that has helped build spirit within the club.“I’d like to see him stay for ever,” said Summerbee. “He’s a nice man; he knows everybody from the cleaners by their name. I always find in life, whether it’s a cricketer, footballer, manager or whatever – Pep Guardiola, Bill Nicholson, Sir Gareth Edwards, Pelé, the late, great Sir Bobby Moore – people that I’ve mixed with, the more famous and great they are, the more humble they are. The ones who think they are great can be difficult.“You talk to him and [he knows I’m] Mike Summerbee: who’s Mike Summerbee? He’s worked with people like Lionel Messi. The current team have got a great atmosphere. You get on the plane with them and you see coaches, kit-men and players all together, playing music. There’s a great atmosphere. There’s no difference in atmosphere from my day to this day.”Summerbee was close friends with Best, which is illustrated by what occurred despite the Northern Irishman’s disappointment at United’s failure to retain the title in 1967-68.“I’d agreed to meet George Best about one o’clock in the morning in the Cabaret Club [in Manchester],” said Summerbee. “I got there about quarter past one and he was there. He could have bottled it but he was there and we went out. People don’t understand what a nice person he was.” Share on Twitterlast_img read more

Miranda Lambert And PEDIGREE Brand Unite To Help Shelter Dogs

first_imgMore than four million dogs enter shelters each year – and the PEDIGREE Brand is dedicated to helping change the lives of shelter dogs in a big way.Miranda Lambert And PEDIGREE Brand Unite To Help Shelter DogsTo show their support, today PEDIGREE announced plans to improve shelters across the country through a shelter renovation project. This project is a continuation of the documentary-style See what good food can do campaign that launched in earlier this year to show first-hand how good food can change the lives of shelter dogs, like those featured in the campaign.“Shelter staff and volunteers work around-the-clock to provide love and attention to these pets. Providing much needed improvements to the shelters is a natural next step for us,” said Merritt Gilbert, brand manager, PEDIGREE Brand. “We hope that through the shelter renovation project – and by giving the shelters good food to feed their dogs – we will create a more welcoming and healthy environment. We believe this will lead to more dogs finding their loving homes.”Shelter Renovation ProjectThe PEDIGREE Brand, with the help of independent charitable organization GreaterGood, PEDIGREE associates and community volunteers, is facilitating shelter improvements in every state across the country – such as painting, installing new signage and enhancing kennels and play areas. And, to kick-off the shelter renovation project, PEDIGREE visited special friend and dog-lover, Miranda Lambert, at the Tishomingo Animal Shelter, in her hometown. Miranda, along with her family and friends, rolled up their sleeves to help more than 50 PEDIGREE Associates from across the Midwest transform the Tishomingo Animal Shelter into one that’s more welcoming for the dogs and potential adopters. Together, they cleaned, painted and constructed agility courses – all to help more pets find forever homes.“I’m so happy to be working with PEDIGREE because they are as committed as I am to helping all these beautiful dogs find loving homes. I started supporting this shelter to ensure every dog in my hometown would have a safe place to stay and enough food to fill their bellies. And, PEDIGREE has helped me deliver on both those promises,” said Lambert during the work day at the shelter.Sharing the See what good food can do StoryAlong with the debut of the PEDIGREE Brand’s documentary-style See what good food can do campaign earlier this year, dog loving friends David Ortiz and Josh Duhamel shared their stories through documentary films. In David’s film, he shared his favorite memories about his own dogs Foxxy and Happy while spending time at his local animal shelter, and Josh reminisced about his beloved rescue dog, Meatloaf, and the importance of dog adoption to him and his family. Now, dog lover Miranda Lambert is unveiling her story with a film that showcases her passion for dog adoption and showcases the renovation of her hometown shelter. Check out Miranda’s story – as well as David’s and Josh’s – at Facebook.com/Pedigree.Every dog owner has a tale to tell – stories of lives transformed by shelter dogs who have found their forever homes, the impact a family pet has made on their life, the difference good food has made in the life of their pet and more. PEDIGREE is continuing to rally the support of dog lovers nationwide by calling on them to share their stories – like Miranda, David and Josh have done – with #DogTales on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. For each story shared, the Brand will donate an additional bowl of food to a shelter in need. Together, we can see the impact that good food can make in the life of a shelter dog.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

Indonesian investigators say doomed Lion Air jet airworthy

first_imgJAKARTA, Indonesia — Investigators of the Oct. 28 crash of a Lion Air flight into the Java Sea say the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft was deemed airworthy when it made its final takeoff from Jakarta.The officials summoned reporters Thursday to refute reports on a news conference the day before where some media reported they had said the plane was not airworthy when it took off.The investigators were reporting on data from the aircraft’s black boxes. They say the cockpit voice recorder, which is still missing and being searched for, is needed to understand what caused the jet to plunge in the Java Sea just 11 minutes after takeoff.Investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said that based on test results after the aircraft’s problems were repaired the aircraft was declared airworthy.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Rabbis Not kosher to patron grocery store during strike

BOSTON — As thousands of Stop & Shop workers remain on strike in New England, some Jewish families are preparing for Passover without the region’s largest supermarket chain, which has deep roots in the local Jewish community.A number of rabbis in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island have been advising their congregations not to cross picket lines to buy Jewish holiday essentials at the store that one analyst says has the highest sales of kosher products among New England grocery stores. More than 30,000 Stop & Shop workers walked off the job April 11 over what they say is an unfair contract offer, a claim the company disputes.“The food that you’re buying is the product of oppressed labour and that’s not kosher,” said Rabbi Barbara Penzner, of Temple Hillel B’nai Torah, a reconstructionist synagogue in Boston. “Especially during Passover, when we’re celebrating freedom from slavery, that’s particularly egregious.”Rabbi Jon-Jay Tilsen, of Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel, a conservative synagogue in New Haven, Connecticut, cited ancient Jewish law prohibiting artisans from taking the livelihood of fellow artisans.Tilsen said that ban is akin to the use of replacement workers by companies during labour strikes, which Stop & Shop has employed. “I am not making any judgment about the current strike,” he stressed. “I am stating that we, local Jews, must respect the workers’ action.”But at Temple Shalom, a reform synagogue in the Boston suburb of Newton, Rabbis Allison Berry and Laura Abrasley said it’s ultimately a personal decision, though one they suggest should be framed within the American Jewish community’s long history of supporting organized labour.“Jewish law is interpreted in different ways,” they said via email. “We encourage our members to celebrate the upcoming holiday in a manner that honours both the Jewish value of freedom and workers’ dignity.”Penzner and other rabbis acknowledge their call to avoid the ubiquitous grocer can be challenging for some, especially in more remote communities where Stop & Shop is the most affordable — and sometime the only — kosher food supplier for miles.New haven resident Rachel Bashevkin said she stocked up on Passover essentials before the strike. And for anything else, she won’t be turning to Stop & Shop, which she said stocks harder to find items that make the Passover Seder extra special, like specialty baked goods, desserts, sweets and teas.“The message of Passover is to me totally (that) you don’t celebrate your holiday at the expense of other people,” she told the New Haven Register earlier this week.The dilemma isn’t unique to Jews, either.Rev. Laura Goodwin, of Holy Spirit Episcopal Church, in Sutton, Massachusetts, said she had ordered the church’s Easter flower arrangements from the nearby Stop & Shop weeks ago. But when it became clear the strike wasn’t going to end before the holiday, she scrambled to purchase enough tulips, hyacinths and daffodils from other stores.“I just personally wasn’t comfortable crossing the picket line,” Goodwin said. “Flowers are nice, but they’re not as important as people’s livelihood.”The religious protests could have significant consequences for the bottom line of the Quincy, Massachusetts-based chain, said Burt Flickinger, a grocery industry analyst for the Strategic Research Group, a New York-based retail consulting firm.Stop & Shop, which operates about 400 stores in New England, New York and New Jersey, is owned by the Dutch supermarket operator Ahold Delhaize but was founded in the 1900s by a Boston Jewish family whose descendants remain major philanthropists and civic leaders in New England.Flickinger estimates the company has been losing about $2 million a day since the strike started, a financial hit that will only magnify in the coming days. Passover and the Christian holiday of Easter typically represent about 3% of the company’s annual sales.“They’ll see big inventory loses, especially on profitable products like produce, flowers, meat and seafood that will go unsold,” he said, projecting the losses for the company could be as much as $20 million for the time period.Flickinger said competitors are already reaping the windfall, as can be seen in packed parking lots and long lines at many of Stop & Shop’s regional rivals, including Shaw’s and Market Basket, in recent days. He estimates competitors could see as much as a 20 per cent bump in sales during the holiday season with the market leader largely sidelined.Stop & Shop declined to comment on Flickinger’s projections but apologized to customers for the inconvenience. The company has kept most of its 240 stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut open, but bakery, deli and seafood counters have been shuttered. The company’s New York and New Jersey locations aren’t affected by the strikes.“We are grateful for members of the Jewish community who rely on our stores for kosher and Passover products,” the company said in an emailed statement. “We’re doing everything we can to minimize disruptions ahead of the holiday.”Philip Marcelo, The Associated Press read more

UN rejects Baghdads charge that WHO staff were denied clearances to visit

In a letter to the Ambassador of Iraq released today, Benon Sevan, the UN Security Coordinator and the Executive Director of the Iraq Programme, said “contrary to what you have been informed, neither the Office of the UN Security Coordinator (UNSECOORD) nor the UN Office of the Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq received a request for security clearances” for members of the WHO mission. “I should like to assure you that had there been such a request, security clearance would have been given promptly,” Mr. Sevan stressed. Mr. Sevan expressed regret that the matter had been used “as yet another opportunity to make aspersions against United Nations personnel working in Iraq as well as to the manner decisions are taken within UNSECOORD, questioning our integrity as international civil servants and our commitment to assist the Iraqi people at this very difficult period.”Baghdad’s charges, contained in a letter to Secretary-General Kofi Annan dated 11 July, concerned a planned visit by WHO to finalize agreement on studying the impact of depleted-uranium munitions on Iraq. A WHO representative has already clarified the matter with the Iraqi Ambassador in Geneva, and a revised schedule for the mission’s visit is now under consideration, according to Mr. Sevan’s letter. read more

Make healthy choices urges UN agency to prevent and manage chronic diabetes

Over the past four decades, diabetes prevalence has risen faster in low- and middle-income countries. In this image, a nurse from Thane Civil Hospital in India checks the level of sugar in the blood of diabetic patients.  WHO/Atul Loke“The percentage of deaths attributable to high blood glucose or diabetes that occurs prior to age 70 is higher in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries,” cited WHO in its  Global Report on Diabetes.Type 1 diabetes, previously known as childhood-onset diabetes, is characterized by a lack of insulin production and requires daily insulin to regulate blood glucose. The cause of type 1 diabetes is not known.However, the majority of people are affected by type 2 diabetes, which results from the body’s ineffective use of insulin. Healthy diet, physical activity and avoiding tobacco use can prevent or delay its onset. Additionally, medication, regular screening and treatment for complications are also available.“An accurate diagnosis is the first step to getting effective treatment,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said earlier this year.In its report, WHO called on governments to “ensure that people are able to make healthy choices and that health systems are able to diagnose, treat and care for people with diabetes,” and encouraged everyone to “eat healthily, be physically active, and avoid excessive weight gain.”The UN General Assembly designated 14 November as World Diabetes Day back in 2007, recognizing “the urgent need to pursue multilateral efforts to promote and improve human health, and provide access to treatment and health-care education.” Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces, which leads to an increased concentration of glucose in the blood. Around 1.6 million deaths can be directly attributed to diabetes each year.“Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attack, stroke and lower limb amputation,” said WHO, noting that about 422 million adults have the disease – a number that has been increasing steadily over the last three decades.WHO Spokesperson Fadela Chaib said that was largely due to changes in lifestyle: “We are eating more heavy foods, full of fat and sugar; we are less physically active; and we have a more sedentary way of living.”As one of the leading causes of death globally, diabetes is a major public health problem, one of four priority non-communicable diseases targeted for action by world leaders, according to WHO.Even when blood glucose levels are not high enough to warrant a diagnosis of diabetes, damage can occur to the body, elevating the risk of cardiovascular disease.In 2012 diabetes took 1.5 million lives and higher-than-optimal levels of blood glucose another 2.2 million. Of the 3.7 million people who died, 43 per cent occurred before the age of 70. read more

Ohio State baseball rallies to undefeated start in 4game Florida series

Then-sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson awaits a pitch.Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State baseball team opened the 2016 season with a bang.Over the course of the four-game weekend, OSU hammered six home runs, pounded out 38 hits and maintained an unbeaten 3-0-1 record in Vero Beach, Florida’s, Dodgertown Classic. Several Buckeyes had outstanding weekends, but none more than redshirt junior Jacob Bosiokovic. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound right fielder finished the weekend with a .412 batting average after going 7-for-17, including three home runs and eight RBIs. Senior captain Nick Sergakis also finished with a .412 average, and senior second baseman L Grant Davis batted a clean .400. Game 1 versus Toledo In the opening game, the Buckeyes were led by their workhorse pitcher, Tanner Tully, who retired 24 of the 25 batters he faced over six scoreless innings as they defeated Toledo 7-1. “It was just what the doctor ordered to have a first start like that,” OSU coach Greg Beals said in a press release. “Give the Toledo hitters credit. I thought they took some good swings and hit him at times. He wasn’t his sharpest, but six scoreless innings is pretty darn good.”OSU’s offense was powered by the long ball against the Rockets, as it crushed three home runs during the game. Bosiokovic went 3-for-5, with a solo home run in his first at-bat of the year which gave the Buckeyes the early lead. Junior catcher and team captain Jalen Washington also crushed a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to push OSU’s lead to 5-0. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, junior center fielder Troy Montgomery hit a two-run homer to right, pushing OSU’s lead to an insurmountable 7-0. Toledo would tack on a late homer in the top of the eighth to mark the final score of 7-1. Beals said it was great for his team to step up and play clean baseball in the first game of the season, as it has been a long road coming for some of his guys. “Both Jacob and Jalen took advantage of their opportunity today,” Beals said. “Jalen has been working his tail off for three years and got the nod. It was great to see him get off to a good start. For Bosiokovic, he struggled and dealt with some injury in the past, and hopefully today will allow him to relax a little bit and have a great season for us.”Game 2 versus NiagaraTo start Saturday’s doubleheader of the Dodgertown Classic trip, the Buckeye bats continued to carry the momentum, especially Bosiokovic. The Delaware, Ohio, native went 2-for-5, including a two-run homer and a walk-off three-run shot to seal a 10-8 comeback victory for the Buckeyes.Redshirt sophomore pitcher Adam Niemeyer started off hot for OSU, allowing only one run over the first four innings. But then the wheels started to fall off for the Minster, Ohio, native, as he allowed four runs in the fifth. He was pulled that inning, giving way to sophomore reliever Seth Kinker, who stopped the bleeding for OSU. That bandage didn’t stay on for long though, as Kinker allowed two more runs in the top sixth inning, pinning OSU to a 7-4 deficit. The Scarlet and Gray showed resiliency, however, as Washington scored on a sacrifice fly by sophomore designated hitter Jordan McDonough. Kinker would settle down, pitching a scoreless seventh, and Bosiokovic correspondingly hit a two-run home run off the left-center scoreboard tying the game. Kinker pitched a scoreless eighth, then redshirt sophomore Yianni Pavlopoulos made his season debut in the ninth, blanking the Purple Eagles and setting the stage for Bosiokovic.OSU quickly got runners on base in the ninth after senior shortstop Craig Nennig walked and advanced to second on a throwing error. Montgomery was then intentionally walked, bringing up No. 17. Bosiokovic crushed a 2-2 pitch off the foul pole in left field to give the Buckeyes their second victory in as many games. Game 3 versus PittsburghIn the second half of the doubleheader on Saturday, the Buckeyes faced the Pittsburgh Panthers. The game would turn out to be a marathon, as the two teams battled 13 innings before OSU won the game 11-8 after a three-run 13th. Montgomery continued his hot start, as the Fortville, Indiana, native went 3-for-6 on the evening, including his second home run and three RBIs. Senior John Havird pitched 5.2 innings for the Buckeyes as the Game 3 starter for OSU, allowing five runs while striking out six Panthers batters. With Pittsburgh up 6-5 heading into the top of the ninth, OSU rallied for the second time that day, scoring three runs to take the 8-6 lead. The lead wouldn’t last, however, as it evaporated after giving up two more runs to send the game into extra innings. No runs were scored in the 10th, 11th or 12th innings as both teams held their ground. The Buckeyes broke through in the 13th with three runs to push their lead to 11-8. Nennig, Davis and Montgomery all scored to provide the insurance runs for the Scarlet and Gray. Freshman relief pitcher Connor Curlis came in to start the 12th inning and remained in for the 13th to finish off the Panthers and pick up the two-inning win in his collegiate debut. Game 4 versus ToledoAs the final game in Vero Beach got underway, the Buckeyes’ red-hot bats continued to bring home the runs. Junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson hit a double to bring home Montgomery and Bosiokovic in the top of the first inning. Dawson would later score on a sacrifice fly by freshman third baseman Brady Cherry to give OSU the early 3-0 lead. The lead quickly dissolved, however, as freshman starting pitcher Ryan Feltner gave up four runs over the first three innings, leaving the Buckeyes down 4-3. Feltner was pulled in the fifth for senior lefty Daulton Mosbarger. Over the next three innings of scoreless ball, Mosbarger struck out six, allowing just one walk and three hits. OSU tied the game in the eighth when Dawson scored on another sac fly, this time off the bat of junior first baseman Zach Ratcliff. But in the bottom of the same inning, Toledo would tack-on a go-ahead run on a fielding error, putting them in position for the win.The Buckeyes once again turned to the bat of Bosiokovic, who provided the game-tying run on a sacrifice fly to score Davis. The game ended in a 5-5 draw, marking the first time since 2002 that the Buckeyes tied a game. The Buckeyes will next look ahead to the Coastal Carolina Tournament from Feb. 26 to 29. OSU is scheduled to play Duke, Coastal Carolina (twice, Games 2 and 4) and Liberty in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. read more

EYEWITNESS Holding the line…

…in the CourtsIn the long, slow march away from the law of the jungle, whatever your Eyewitness’ complaints about the shortcomings of the Judiciary might be, he has to accept that, in the main, we can be proud of our Judges when it comes to encroachments of the Leviathan. This “separation of powers” device of splitting the powers of the state into the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches has proven to be a powerful device to curb the excesses of the executive – which runs the Leviathan.In our parliamentary system, which parliamentarian on the government benches will go against the party line, when he’s salivating for “Minister wuk’? So, all we have left to look out for us is the Judiciary. And that’s why we, the people, have to be very wary about who ends up on the Benches. Even in the US – which before Trump, could trumpet its “democratic” credentials – the Executive constantly tries to “pack the bench” to support its agenda. But generally, that agenda is more at a macro level than in our small Guyana where things can really get personal.So, when we had the top two judicial officials of our land retiring (well TECHNICALLY) and being replaced by this new administration – a lot of eyes swivelled to the new appointees to see how they’d vote in sensitive cases. Well, strike one Chief Justice (ag), Yonette Cummings-Edwards, who just ruled that SOCU can’t compel the GRA to turn over information of taxpayers’ returns to them!!Maybe this will force the administration to return to first principles on not just the powers of SOCU, but more broadly, exactly what it’s all about. For sure, your Eyewitness is a bit challenged when even though they’re supposed to be going after “organised crime”, the Pradoville II’s supposed misfeasance of public officials is number one on their “hit” parade. Your Eyewitness always assumed, of course, APNU/AFC accusation’s about PPP running a “criminal syndicate” was just throwing shade!Anyhow, the Judge has justified the stance of many critics of SOCU who’ve pointed out that the powers given to the Unit are too extensive and violate the fundamental principle of “innocent until proven guilty”. With the emphasis on “proven”. At this time, even the GHRA has had to complain about the intemperate language used by the heads of SOCU’s twin, SARA – and acted out in the manner in which SOCU went about interrogating the leader of the Opposition.The government shows no sign of toning down its strident accusatory rhetoric towards those it deems opponents.All citizens should encourage the Judiciary to hold the line.…for Chuck BerryMan can’t live by bread alone – he’s gotta satisfy the needs of his soul. And right on top of those needs is music. One of the stalwarts who gave solace to many was the legendary Chuck Berry – who just passed away. Now it doesn’t really matter that Berry was off the scene for a while – ‘cause his music and style influenced so many from across the pop music spectrum – he’s remained alive.For someone from the poor, black American ghettoes, that’s quite an accomplishment. But it’s not coincidental his influence wasn’t directly acknowledged by contemporary US white stars like Elvis Presley – but from across the pond in England. The Beatles and Rolling Stones both did covers on some of his hits when they started out. Roll over Beethoven!!In addition to composing many of his songs and coming up with the tunes, Berry was a mean guitarist who had a distinctive style that lent that xtra special SOMETHING to his hits.Rock on Chuck!…on Smart Man MetersToday, the City Council, with a majority of its members from the PNC will vote on a request by the PNC-led central government that it suspend the infamous parking meter contract.Today, we will see who has “more seed that baigan”!

Munster play best when their backs are to the wall David Wallace

first_imgMUNSTER WILL BE very much under pressure but that is not always a bad thing for this side. That is often when they thrive and I am predicting a big win to give them momentum going into an important couple of months.They have Perpignan home and away next and have the return tie against Gloucester [at Kingsholm] before they get a chance to right the wrongs of the Edinburgh defeat. Having to travel to France and England and win makes for a very difficult campaign.The Edinburgh game was deemed to be the easier of the three but the only consolation Munster can take is that the loss came early in their campaign and they now know what they have to do. They are now in cup rugby territory and that is when Munster play their best.They did not play cup rugby against Edinburgh and were guilty of trying to force the play. They did not play the percentages and it led to Tim Visser’s try, which turned the game on its head.Losing Simon Zebo for the next 10 weeks is a huge loss. He brings something different to every team he plays for and has an uncanny ability to get out of tackles. It is very hard to predict what he is going to do. Saying that, I am happy to see Johne Murphy get his chance on the left wing. He has been very underrated by the new management in the last couple of years and has got very little game time. I expect him to make the most of his chance but it would have been good to see either Ronan O’Mahony or Andrew Conway, who is in the Munster A squad this weekend, on the bench. Oil in the Munster machineDonncha O’Callaghan has been recalled to the second row and brings with him a massive work-rate. He throws his body on the ball and does a lot of hard, unseen work to the benefit of his teammates. He frees up the other guys to carry and is the oil in the Munster engine room.I am surprised that James Coughlan has been demoted to the bench but that’s the way it is and, with O’Callaghan in the second row, you have to fit Donnacha Ryan in somewhere. Coughlan has been one of the more consistent ball carriers for Munster in recent years but he did not have much of an impact, in that regard, last weekend.Niall Ronan is good at openside flanker and links up the play well. He used to play centre for Leinster so has that all-round field of skills. The ball-carrying is key this week and Peter O’Mahony will be called upon to do an awful lot of that. CJ Stander is there to deputise across the back row but I’m surprised he is not starting.The Gloucester dangerman is certainly going to be Ben Morgan, who is a great ball-carrier with deceptive speed. I would be wary of him and Freddie Burns, who will be eager to get off the bench after missing out last weekend [against Perpignan].The quotes coming out of the Gloucester camp have encouraged me. They are talking about coming to Thomond Park and playing expansive rugby. If you are a Munster player, you want to hear that. Gloucester may be in for a serious shock to the system.”Playing four-try rugby for five points will cause you to come-a-cropper. The priority for Munster is to get the win and worry about bonus points only after securing the victory.David Wallace runs Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe at the Crescent Shopping Centre.

Named for WWE Hall of Famers The Fabulous Freebirds, the rule stipulates that a faction that holds a championship can assign any of its members to defend the title at any given time. The reigning Raw Tag Team Champions, The New Day, have used the Freebird Rule to great success.

first_imgIt is possible that Bernd Leno could be nearing a move to Arsenal. Petr Cech is now 36 and he couldn’t impress largely enough during the last season.In the same vein, David Ospina is a goalkeeper that provides little faith for Arsenal fans as well as other media speculations trailing the new goalkeeper signing for Arsenal.There are also rumours that the 26-year-old has turned down Napoli, and is at the moment being chased by Atletico Madrid too which could be the reason behind the decision.Jadon SanchoMerson 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.The Azzurri were more interested in Rui Patricio while Leno reportedly has a €25 million release clause separating him from an exit, too. His agent also claimed, however, that the Bayer Leverkusen star can only have one priority which is the Mannschaft, according to calciomercato.“Bernd is concentrating entirely on the national team, nothing else matters,” he said.“There are several options for his future, which are tested without any hassle, this has not changed today.” “At the moment, Bernd is a player from Bayer Leverkusen, and this has been constant for more than seven years. As soon as there is something else to announce, we will do that.”last_img read more
