Messi knew Neymar would cause PSG problems – Report

first_imgIt was an embarrassing turn of events, that followed a spat to decide who should take a free kick. BARCELONA star Lionel Messi is supposedly happier without Neymar – and knew the PSG forward would cause problems at his new club, The Newsmen.Barcelona lost Neymar to Ligue 1 giants PSG over the summer, with Unai Emery’s side shelling out £198m to sign him from their La Liga counterparts.The Brazil international already looks good value for money, scoring five goals from his first six games and striking up a good partnership with Kylian Mbappe.However, the 25-year-old made the headlines for all the wrong reasons at the weekend, clashing with team-mate Edinson Cavani over a penalty and a free kick.And Spanish outlet Diario Gol say  Messi always thought controversies would engulf Neymar once he decided to swap Catalonia for France.The two enjoyed four years together, helping Barcelona win La Liga twice and the Champions League in the process.Many thought Messi’s form would dip with Ernesto Valverde’s side theoretically weaker without Neymar in their ranks.But Diario Gol say that was not the case.Messi is reportedly unsurprised by Neymar’s appetite to cause disruption given how much he wanted to be Barcelona’s main man.He was aware of how much the Brazilian wanted to overthrow him in the dressing room – despite the duo publicly insisting they got along.Additionally, Messi is reportedly happier without his former team-mate at the club.Without Neymar threatening to usurp him, the 30-year-old has taken La Liga by storm.Messi already has nine goals for the campaign from just five games, and scored four as Barcelona beat Eibar 6-1 at the Nou Camp on Tuesday evening.Meanwhile,  and  Cavani have been told they will have a new bonus structure that will encourage them to work together more, according to The newsmen.The pair clashed during PSG’s 2-0 win over Lyon on Sunday while squabbling over who should take penalties and free kicks.And the selfish circus took place in full glare of the watching crowd, as world record signing Neymar pleaded to take a penalty, but Cavani won the argument. The Uruguayan lost the battle of wits over the spot kick though, as he blazed his effort against the bar.last_img read more

Superintendent Dusek Proud of Students’ Community Outreach

first_imgHe applauded the recent Kenai Central High School spaghetti feed that raised somewhere around $5,000 for local homeless students. Nikiski High and Middle School also has an ongoing program to help students connect with seniors in the community. Nikiski Senior Center Director Jill Smith says those quilts will be donated to the senior center tomorrow, after which center staff will give them to local seniors in needs. Dusek: “Nikiski has a quilt project with the senior center out there and apparently over 30 quilts have already been made. So it’s really great to see our students and our schools engaged with our community to make a positive difference.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Overall the Kenai Peninsula scored higher than other areas of the state in the new Alaska Measures of Progress testing and District Superintendent Sean Dusek says he is proud of local students for that and another reason.center_img She added that the seniors appreciate the baked goods that the Nikiski students drop by the center once a month. Dusek: “We have a number of projects, in particular right now that students see that there’s an issue in the community and they step up with some of the staff in the schools to come up with action steps and a plan to try to address those problems.” Various other local schools have community outreach projects created by students as well and Dusek says their caring attitudes are inspiring.last_img read more

Guilbeau: Tigers’ TD Ameritrade crash to finally cease

first_imgGlenn GuilbeauGlenn GuilbeauOMAHA, Nebraska – There is this vision of Omaha that rings true more often than not.Sunny skies, but not that hot. Just warm. It is usually refreshing to be here away from the 90 percent humidity of South Louisiana, where it is muggier at night than it as at noon in Omaha. Like most Midwestern cities, Omaha is clean. People are friendly. I keep expecting to see Andy and Helen and Barney and Thelma Lou strolling around town after dinner – but not too much after 9.The steaks are good. There are trains everywhere, and who doesn’t like trains? There are occasional tornadoes, but more often than not, the sky is blue, the air crisp, and the beer cold at Barrett’s Barleycorn Pub and Grill, where the LSU Nation has celebrated most of its 35 CWS victories since 1987 well past 9 p.m.LSU coach Paul Mainieri compared Rosenblatt Stadium, the home of the World Series from 1950 to 2010 and where he and the Tigers won a national championship in 2009, to Disneyland. TD Ameritrade, where the Series moved in 2011, is more like Corporate World and not enough Midwestern, but it’s still a beautiful, sprawling stadium.LSU’s stock, however, continues to crash at Ameritrade. Before trading closes on Tuesday, it could be a Black Tuesday at LSU if the Tigers fall to Cal State Fullerton in a 2 p.m. elimination game on ESPN2. A loss will mean LSU is 0-for-4 in TD over the last three years. There was the 0-for-2 in an unlucky 2013 appearance, and a Bloody Sunday past in which the Tigers seemed to be possessed by demons from the Bad News Bears in a 10-3 loss to Texas Christian University.Andrew Stevenson, the best center fielder in college baseball and a second round draft choice, let a fly ball get over his head. He never does that, and this one didn’t even make it to the warning track. Catcher Kade Scivicque threw one by third base for an error – just his third of the season. Conner Hale dropped one at third base at a critical time during a four-run fifth that put the game out of reach at 6-1. A home-to-first double play was possible that could’ve ended the inning with no runs and LSU down only 2-1. It was only Hale’s seventh error of the season and first in 21 games.“I feel like I was trying to be too quick on that play,” Hale said Monday.And then there was the curious case of Jared Poche, who suddenly, inexplicably turned himself into a quarterback trying to throw corner routes on the goal line – lob it over the cornerback’s head and let the receiver go get it. Poche lobbed it over everyone, and in Alex Box it may have landed in the stands. He turned a weak grounder by leadoff hitter Cody Jones into a three-base error to open the TCU fourth after throwing three perfect innings. The next batter also tapped to Poche, who improved on his lob, but he still missed his target and was charged with another error. TCU, feeling lucky and blessed, went on to take a 2-0 lead and was on its way.Jones must have felt particularly touched by Omaha angels. He became the first player at the World Series in 25 years to score three runs without a hit. He was 0-for-3 but reached twice on infield errors and a third time when he was hit by a pitch.LSU used as many pitchers — eight — as it had hits, and this was no mid-week game. It committed four errors to tie a season high.“I can think of a lot of things we did in that game that we haven’t done all season,” senior outfielder/designated hitter Chris Sciambra said Monday.“Yesterday was uncharacteristic of how we’ve played all year,” junior shortstop Alex Bregman said.“Yesterday was a disaster,” LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. “I don’t know how else to say it. Maybe the worst game I’ve been in in nine years at LSU.”Mainieri wanted to open his press gathering Monday with something coaches love to say the morning after disasters. “I was going to tell you the sun came up this morning, but it really didn’t,” he said.And that is precisely why LSU may have a chance for a little fresh Omaha sun on Tuesday. The same rain that delayed LSU’s start Sunday afternoon and suspended Cal State Fullerton’s 3-0 lead over Vanderbilt in the sixth Sunday night was still falling Monday afternoon as Mainieri spoke. That rain pushed Cal State Fullerton and Vanderbilt to Monday afternoon, and the Commodores pulled it out 4-3 in the ninth. If the game is finished Sunday night, that might not happen.On Monday afternoon, LSU finally saw the Omaha sun again. And it got its first TD Ameritrade break. The Tigers do not have to face Vanderbilt (48-19) and 6-foot-2 junior right-hander Walker Buehler, a first round pick in the Major League Baseball Draft last week, or 6-4 junior right-hander Tyler Ferguson, a sixth round pick.LSU gets Cal State Fullerton (39-24) and freshman right-hander Connor Seabold (5-3, 2.84 ERA), a good pitcher, but not on as good a team as the Commodores. Cal State is hitting .265 with 20 home runs. LSU is at .315 with 51 homers. Cal State has eight regulars who do not have a home run and only four hitting .300 with two below .200. LSU has eight .300 hitters.The Titans have only one pitcher with more than seven wins. That is junior right-hander Thomas Eshelman, a second round pick last week who is 8-5 with a 1.58 ERA. But he pitched Sunday. LSU will start a freshman, too, but that will be Alex Lange, 11-0 with a 1.89 ERA.“Someone had to remind me that he was a freshman just a couple of minutes ago,” Sciambra said of Lange. “His bare minimum is he gives us a chance to win. If he’s better than that, we’ll have an excellent chance to win. As an offense we need to throw the first punch and take control of the game instead of waiting for something to happen. Really, we just have to be ourselves.”That way, the sun will finally come out and stay out for the Tigers at TD Ameritrade.last_img read more

‘#CoolPrez’ puts scare in NSU star point guard West before falling in H-O-R-S-E

first_imgNATCHITOCHES — Northwestern State basketball Jalan West felt a little pressure competing against University president Dr. Jim Henderson Monday night, and that was even before their much-anticipated game of H-O-R-S-E started.After falling behind two letters to one, West was even more jumpy, but it was Henderson feeling the butterflies at the end.West, a former Bossier High standout, took a jumper over the head of Tonia, Henderson’s wife of 22 years, and drained a 20-footer that eventually sealed the H-O-R-S-E game Monday evening in Henderson’s own backyard, nicknamed “The Brickyard” because of the red-brick patio in the president’s on-campus home.Gary Hardamon/Special to The Press-TribuneNSU senior point guard Jalan West, a former Bossier High star, launches a shot during a game of H-O-R-S-E against NSU President Dr. Jim Henderson Monday at Dr. Henderson’s home.Henderson, 46, admitted he couldn’t concentrate with his beautiful wife in close proximity, after he short-armed his final shot to lose.“It was a dirty trick,” Henderson said in a post-game discussion with Jalan. “(Tonia) distracts me to this day. She’s right in front of me, and all I could think about was the butterflies in my stomach.“There’s no way I could make that shot with that beautiful creature from Gueydan (Louisiana) standing in front of me.”West admitted he improvised the last shot, especially after missing several long-range attempts while seated from the patio chair.“I just saw a pretty face in the crowd and figured it would go in my favor,” West said. “It was a distraction for him, and it worked.”West, the NCAA’s 16th-leading scorer averaging 20 points per game this past season, is used to getting his buckets down the road in historic Prather Coliseum.But one July 2 tweet after driving past Henderson’s house eventually brought him to Henderson’s backyard, complete with a portable Spalding basketball goal, a large oak tree with a dangling yellow rope and a pitched tent to replace the airplane hangar-shaped coliseum.“Never noticed @DrJBHenderson had a goal in the backyard, wonder if I could get a game of horse sometime soon…,” West tweeted from his @jalanwest12 account.Henderson quipped on July 3 that NSU alumni needed to donate $100 for every letter he scores and $1,000 for every letter West scores.But the wily academic, whose late father Clem was a state championship-winning prep basketball coach at Fair Park High, had the Mid-Major All-American on his heels early.Laying in a reclined patio chair at least 15 feet away from the hoop, Henderson banked in his first shot, to the cheers of the 50 fans in attendance.“It was great for me to get the first shot to go down, to get that first letter on him,” Henderson said.West missed, and he failed to make several other trick shots before finally making a traditional jumper to find his rhythm.That make evened the score with an ‘H’ apiece, and Henderson fended off another letter by answering West’s angled shot over the side of the backboard.Henderson nailed a long jumper as the ultimate underdog snatched a one-letter lead (H to H-O).“If you hadn’t of got going with your jump shot – I had you on the ropes,” Henderson said. “My whole goal was just to make it longer than five shots.“To get two letters to me was like climbing Mount Everest.”West responded, “Yeah you had me. That’s why I had to get my shot going. I had to see my ball go in – otherwise I would have lost.“But I had to keep the game a little close. If I would have won in five shots, I might have not been able to graduate,” said the senior-to-be. “At first I thought I was in a lose-lose situation, but now I think we’re both winners because I built your confidence up.”West’s 25-foot underhand shot from the back patio’s brick columns started the rout. West mocked Henderson by making a “fundamental backboard” shot that Henderson previously missed for the third letter before the point guard placed one foot on a table and another on a chair for Henderson’s ‘R.’A rematch is anticipated in Prather Coliseum in October. Henderson said he didn’t want to damage the psyche of his star heading into the season.“Ohh, that’s why we didn’t win the Southland Conference last year,” Henderson joked after West missed a shot that scored his ‘O.’“But now he has the confidence to win the Southland title,” Henderson said post-game. “As a university president, you have to be to humiliate yourself on the behalf of the University and think long-term.West responded, “You’re like a point guard, thinking seven plays ahead. I only think two or three plays ahead.”The trick shots were aplenty, but nothing crazy like inviting a guest defender like West’s former Demon teammate, Will Mosley, the NCAA”s fifth-leading career shotblocker.Whatever the result of the next H-O-R-S-E game, the connection between “#CoolPrez” (West’s Twitter moniker for Henderson) wise to the ways of social media and a silky-smooth star point guard hopefully destined to play under the bright NBA lights was evident.“We’re so fortunate to have Jalan on campus in Natchitoches – he is what a scholar-athlete is supposed to be,” Henderson said. “He engages the community and is a leader on campus, and he plays basketball like nobody’s business.”— Matt Vines, NSUDemons.comTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

McGregor beats Cerone in 40 seconds

first_imgMixed Martial Arts Conor McGregor returned to the octagon in style at UFC 246 as he beat American fan favourite Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in just 40 seconds in Las Vegas. Irishman McGregor, 31, came out on top after one of the most spectacular performances of his career. Two of UFC’s most popular fighters went toe to toe in the main event at the T-Mobile Arena. But referee Herb Dean stepped in and waved off the contest inside a minute after a series of blows from McGregor. “I made history tonight. I set a new record. I’m the first fighter in UFC history to secure knockout victories at featherweight, at lightweight and now at welterweight – across three weight divisions, so I’m very proud of that,” said McGregor. He had not won inside the UFC’s octagon since capturing his second UFC world title in November 2016, and was submitted in four rounds by undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018. McGregor had said earlier in the week that he would look to “acquire rounds” against the 36-year-old American, but he showed no such patience as he came storming out of his corner and threw a huge left hand that immediately signalled his intent to claim a fast finish. The Dubliner then connected with a series of shoulders to the face from the clinch, before following his man across the cage and connecting with a huge head kick that badly rocked Cerrone. Several heavy left hands followed as Cerrone crumbled to the canvas, where he received a further barrage of strikes that sealed victory. “One of the records he holds [is] the most head-kick knockouts. I’m so happy to be able to get him down with a head kick myself,” said McGregor. “The UFC can strip fighters and give to other fighters make-believe belts in order to replicate my ‘champ-champ’ status. But they can’t give knockout victories across multiple weight divisions, so there you go again. Etch my name in history one more time. “I like this weight division. I feel really good. God willing, I came out of here unscathed. I’m in shape. I don’t believe I’m there yet, though. I’ve still got work to do to get back to where I was.” McGregor surged to MMA superstardom when he signed for the UFC as a two-division Cage Warriors champion, then replicated the feat by capturing the UFC titles at featherweight and lightweight, becoming the first man to simultaneously hold UFC titles in two weight classes. But those titles were subsequently stripped by the UFC after he failed to defend his belts and, after sharing wins with Nate Diaz in a pair of epic encounters in 2016, the Irishman pursued – and secured – a multi-million-dollar boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr. His return to the UFC saw him unsuccessfully challenge for the UFC lightweight title against Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in an encounter full of bad blood and divisive rhetoric. But he vowed to return, and he has kicked off what he described as his “2020 season” in spectacular fashion to set up a plethora of big-fight options later in the year. A shot at the welterweight title, held by Kamaru Usman, or a bout with the UFC’s “BMF” champion Jorge Masvidal would allow McGregor to continue at his new weight class of 170lb, while he has made no secret of his desire to face Nurmagomedov in a rematch for the lightweight belt. There may be options outside of MMA, too. A rematch with Mayweather is a possibility, while Manny Pacquiao is reportedly also interested in a bout with McGregor, who is sure to command a huge TV audience and payday.last_img read more

LaCrosse scores $2,500 IMCA Modified win at Luxemburg

first_imgBy Greg Aregoni LUXEMBURG, Wis, (June 27) – Benji LaCrosse has won some big races and championships in his racing career. He added to those already illustrious accomplishments when he grabbed the $2,500 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature win Friday at Luxemburg Speedway.LaCrosse started 20th in the field, drove through traffic and survived a late race scare for the win. Scott Drake, Jason Czarapata, Lance Arneson and Shawn Kilgore completed the top five.Kilgore started up front in the main event and shot ahead of the 26-car field. By lap 10, Kilgore had a lead of about four car lengths on Jeff Taylor. Taylor ran the extreme outside to track down Kilgore and take the lead on lap 12. LaCrosse, mean­while, was charging through the field and by lap 23 found himself in third. A caution on lap 30 put Kilgore and LaCrosse on Taylor’s back bumper. Both Kilgore and La­Crosse timed the restart perfectly and went three-wide with Taylor for a near full lap.Taylor had bite on the top and reestablished the lead. The next four laps saw LaCrosse try every­thing possible to make the pass without touching the leader. LaCrosse threw his car in the corner and allowed Taylor enough room to keep his line. Disaster struck with five laps left when Taylor’s throttle stuck with and he slammed into the wall. LaCrosse had nowhere to go and made heavy contact with the leader. LaCrosse was able to resume the race but Taylor was not as fortunate. LaCrosse restarted at the front and then checked out like he was at a grocery store. He extended his lead by a near straighta­way in the waning laps to take the win.Drake made a late-race charge to finish second. Czarapata worked around Arneson for third and Kilgore fell to fifth at the end. LaCrosse was already on the 2014 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. The victory was his IMCA Modified career 91st. Brandon Czarapata was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner and Tracy Wassenberg ruled the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.Luxemburg Speedway is racing Thursday night, July 3, beginning at 7 p.m. There will be no rac­ing on Independence Day.Feature results – 1.
