Pep hails “good performance” by under-cooked champs

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is pleased at the manner his players saw off Arsenal despite several of them not being match fit © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 12 – Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said his players know how to eke out victories even when many are not fully match fit just as they did in getting their title defence off to a winning start with a routine 2-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday.Goals by Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva sufficed in a match where Guardiola was able to call on the likes of Belgian star Kevin de Bruyne and German international wing Leroy Sane from the substitutes bench. Guardiola, who maintained his unbeaten record against Arsenal’s new manager Unai Emery with seven wins and four draws, said with most of the squad being together for two years they knew what it took to come out on top even if they aren’t in peak physical condition.“We have a lot of players with a lack of condition but we are more than two seasons together and know what to do,” Guardiola told the BBC.“We made a good performance in general and day by day we will get better and better.”Guardiola, who opened the domestic season with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in last Sunday’s Community Shield, said he was pleased to have emerged victorious in what on paper was a tough first encounter against one of the so-called ‘Big Six’.“Every season is a major season and this game was complicated but we played at a high level,” he told Sky Sports.“We created a lot of chances and out performance was good. We keep going.“We are satisfied for many, many reasons.“At 1-0 we found a goal maybe we didn’t deserve but in the first half we deserved to score two or three more.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Juventus want to keep Morata but admit Arsenal target’s future is uncertain

first_img Alvaro Morata in action for Juventus Juventus director Beppe Marotta claims the club want to keep hold of Arsenal target Alvaro Morata – but revealed the process will be “complicated”. The striker has a buy-back clause with Real Madrid and it is rumoured the Spanish giants are ready to activate it this summer.Arsenal are keen on the 23-year-old too and tried to sign him two years ago when he moved to Italy.Juventus, however, would like to keep their star striker but Marotta admits such a scenario is becoming harder to achieve.“We want to keep Alvaro with us, that’s our clear objective,” Marotta told Tuttosport.“It will be very complicated though, it doesn’t depend on us. The lad is having a wonderful time here though, he’s very happy. Juventus is his natural habitat.” 1last_img read more

first_imgPamela is crowned the Queen of Grianan.Promoted postOnly one local woman can proudly claim the title of Grianan Queen since the time of the O’Neills and their legendary reign at Grianan of Aileach. Now that queen, Pamela Crowe, who was crowned in 2009 in preparation for Burt’s hosting of the international sheep shearing championships, must hand on the title to the 2015 queen who will be elected in the Halfway House on Sunday next, 3rd May. Once again, this event will herald the opening of Burt’s preparations for the hosting of the International, all Ireland and Six Nations Sheep Shearing Championships on the Grianan Estate from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st of May.The 2009 sheep shearing championships attracted over 15000 visitors and this year’s promises to be at least as exciting with a greater number of family attractions, a food quarter and a huge number of traditional craft displays, sheep-dog trials, fun fair and family fun activities too numerous to mention.Sunday’s event will see a panel of local judges undertake the unenviable task of selecting a queen from a list of very worthy candidates, some of whom will be representing local pubs, clubs and hotels.Music on the night will be provided by local band ‘Smalltalk’,and the crowning of the queen will be followed by a disco with dancing until late. Tickets are €10 and are available at the door. Door opens 8pm. All are welcome to what promises to be an entertainment packed evening of music and craic. GRIANAN TO CROWN A NEW QUEEN! was last modified: April 27th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalInishowenPamela CroweQueen of Aileachlast_img read more

first_imgSunderland manager Martin O’Neill is looking to beat QPR to the signing of Tottenham defender Michael Dawson, according to the Sunday People.Dawson turned down a move to Loftus Road in the summer and Rangers are hoping to persuade him to make the switch when the transfer window opens next month.It is claimed Sunderland, who have previously been linked with him, are ready to pay £5m for the centre-back and that he is top of O’Neill’s wanted list.The Sun on Sunday say QPR, along with Southampton, are interested in Ivory Cost winger Abdul Keita, who is currently with Qatar outfit Al Saad.The same paper also suggest Adel Taarabt will be asked by boss Harry Redknapp to miss the Africa Cup of Nations with Morocco to help Rangers’ survival bid, and claim that Samba Diakite has told Mali he is unavailable.And The Independent on Sunday report that Ipswich are keen to sign on-loan R’s striker DJ Campbell on a permanent basis.Meanwhile, Chelsea are looking to sign Newcastle striker Demba Ba next month, the Sunday Telegraph suggest.The Blues have previously been linked with Ba and, along with Arsenal, are said to be keen to exploit a £7m release clause in his contract.The Sunday Telegraph also understand Marina Granovskaia, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s personal assistant, flew to Spain this week to hold talks over the possible signings of Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao and Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuaín.The Sunday Express say Manchester City are planning a surprise move for Chelsea’s Ashley Cole.Interim manager Rafael Benitez may deploy Victor Moses as a lone striker for Chelsea if Fernando Torres goes off the boil again, according to the Sunday Mirror.The People say Chelsea want Barcelona star Sergio Busquets but will have to wait until the end of the season to sign him as the Catalan giants do not want to sell in January.And The Sun on Sunday report that Marouane Fellani has pledged his future to Everton despite being linked with a number of clubs, including ChelseaThis page is regularly updated. 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

SA police ‘ready for 2010’

first_img2 July 2008South Africa is well prepared to ensure the safety of the millions of tourists set to visit the country for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, says the South African Police Service.The SA Police Service revealed details of its plans to secure the country’s skies, highways, stadiums, streets and accommodation venues this week, as part of a plan that will see the government spending a further R665-million on procuring state-of-the-art equipment and R640-million on the deployment of more than 41 000 police officers.“I am happy to announce that our comprehensive security plan for the Fifa World Cup was submitted and it is in Zurich and I think Fifa will be satisfied with the security concept in general,” deputy national police commissioner Andre Pruis told reporters in Pretoria on Monday at the release of the country’s 2007/08 crime statistics.“However, we still need to finalise the security plans for the areas and towns where the teams will be staying,” said Pruis, who is in charge of the country’s 2010 World Cup security.He said the police had already begun event-specific training and simulation exercises for the tournament.

MapofBeauty Charming and Sexy Women’s Long Curly Wig Wave Wig – Five Stars

first_imgLength: Approx 70cm Great wig for Dorthy Features of MapofBeauty Charming and Sexy Women’s Long Curly Wig Wave Wig (Light Brown)100% Top Quality & Brand NewMaterial : 100% Top Kanekalon FiberAdjustable Monofilament NetLength: Approx 70cm100% Top Quality & Brand New Five Stars SummaryReviewer Nathalie DuboisReview Date2019-10-31 18:08:38Reviewed Item MapofBeauty Charming and Sexy Women’s Long Curly Wig Wave Wig (Light Brown)Rating 4.2 / 5  stars, based on  8  reviews Material : 100% Top Kanekalon Fiber Adjustable Monofilament Net For the price, the wig is great and flaws within the product are acceptable. The wig sheds a little and tangles easy – as with all wigs of this length. With proper care, however, this wig can be worn every day. The hair line is not so great, and the parting could be better. But for the price, it’s very impressive. Perfect for my dorthy costume this halloween. I used this for dorthy from wizard of oz just plaited it myself. The wig is really good quality. Very soft wig but light brown came much darker than expected. Curls very easy to brush without losing their shape but the bangs are very difficult to style: they dont want to be brushed to the side. Bought for halloween, and it looked great. Similar to my already existing hair style, so had several friends thinking i had dyed my hair and didn’t realise it was a wig until they got a closer look. I used two wig caps (bought from another supplier) to hold my hair in place due to the thickness and length of it. Will definitely wear again for future fancy dress parties. Does need a lot of care, but worth it for the price Posted on October 31, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories WigsTags MapofBeautylast_img read more

Finally, Twitter Will Let You Download All Your Tweets

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#social media#twitter Related Posts How Does It Work?Turns out that for now it’s available only to select users. And only in English. The function is being rolled out slowly. Twitter says the service will be available to all users in every language the service provides in the coming weeks and months.Want to see if you’re one of the lucky guinea pigs who are able to access the archive right away? Here’s what to do: Log in to Twitter, go to Settings, scroll down to the bottom to see if you have the option to “Request your archive.” If you see the button, you’re eligible (unfortunately I was not eligible). Once you click the button, “You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to access your archive when it’s ready for you to download,” Vandor promises in the blog post. For heavy Twitter users with thousands of tweets, the archive feature should be a useful tool to preserve and remember what they’ve said, experienced and shared. And you can imagine how much it will help biographers and historians. But really, this feature affects how everyone uses Twitter – making a instantaneous, immediate medium just a little more lasting and permanent. And if your archive unearths some tweet-worthy old tweets… tweet ’em. Twitter asks that you “share your favorites using #TwitterArchive.” Check it out.  Image courtesy of Shutterstock. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos adam popescu Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Twitter finally did it. On Wednesday, after months of anticipation, Twitter officially introduced an archive function that will allow its 150 million active users to download every one of their tweets. That’s right, now you can do what the Library of Congress has been trying to do for the past few years: Collect and save all of your tweets!“You’ll get all your Tweets (including Retweets) going back to the beginning,” Twitter user services engineer Mollie Vandor wrote on the Twitter blog Wednesday. “Once you have your Twitter archive, you can view your tweets by month, or search your archive to find tweets with certain words, phrases, hashtags or @usernames. You can even engage with your old tweets just as you would with current ones.”This upgrade has been a long time coming, and a lot of people have been clamoring for Twitter to make this available. Now it is. The only thing is, most people will have to wait to get admitted into the tweet-archive party.last_img read more
