Johnson reflects on mixed display

Posted on

first_imgCity’s second game against Derby County in less than 24 hours ended in a defeat at the IMG Academy Field.Following the 1-0 win over the Rams in a weather-abandoned match the previous evening after Famara Diedhiou’s early goal, the re-match went the way of Philip Cocu’s side.Goals from Mason Bennett and Ikechi Anya gave Derby a two-goal lead before Saikou Janneh pulled one back for a completely changed City side to ensure the games stayed even over the two games.Head Coach Johnson said: “It’s another good run-out. There were some bits I was very pleased. In the first 30 minutes we had some great moves and should have scored a couple in that time, particularly around the far post.“In the second half I was disappointed if I’m honest with some of the applications and I expect more from some of the lads we had out there. But it is early days and it is pre-season and I have to take every single situation and use it as information and a decision-making process towards the start of the season.“What I really want is an enthusiasm to play for Bristol City and that’s the bit in pre-season that I am judging, to make sure that I am comfortable that we can trust that when we put somebody out in front of a 25,000 crowd at Ashton Gate that they are going to be absolutely committed in their body language as well as their footballing ability.”last_img read more

UBS commission of inquiry seeks three-month extension

Posted on

first_imgThe Commission of Inquiry into the controversial $1.2 billion Union Bank of Switzerland loan was stalled yesterday after the commission has now requested an extension of three months on account of unresolved administrative issues. First mention of the COI on September 2, 2019 highlighted a number of preparations that the commission was to undertake before yesterday’s hearing, however, COI chairman, Sir Salamo Injia said yesterday that a number of these preparation (especially in securing necessary resources) have yet to be completed. Furthermore, Sir Salamo said in addition to the three-month extension, the commission will also be making a request for a “significant increase” to the K4 million which was initially allocated for the inquiry by the Marape government. Sir Salamo indicated that this significant increase in budget was due to the fact that the non-citizen component of COI staff had not been factored in to the initial budget. In light of these issues the commission has now set the public hearing of the inquiry to October 17, 2019 at 9.30am.last_img read more

Despite reports of an agreement, Everton player wants transfer elsewhere

Posted on

first_imgPrevious reports from France said Everton had agreed to sell Onyekuru to Monaco for around €15m but Ajansspor report a deal hasn’t been sealed.It’s reported Onyekuru wants play for Galatasaray next season after winning two domestic trophies with the Super Lig side, and he’s said to have informed Everton of his decision.The Merseyside club now face a decision with regards to the 22 year old and Ajansspor report Galatasaray are pushing hard to loan Onyekuru for another season. Talks between the two clubs will now continue.Along with Gala and Monaco, Ajansspor also claim Wolfsburg, Napoli, Atalanta and CSKA Moscow have submitted official offers for the player and Everton will decide what to do in the coming weeks.Onyekuru has yet to make his debut for the Toffees due to his continuing issues getting a work permit to play in England.It must be noted that Monaco claims coming from France have seemed pretty concrete, perhaps this is Turkish hope masquerading as something else. According to Ajansspor, Everton haven’t reached an agreement with AS Monaco with regards to selling Henry Onyekuru to the Ligue 1 side, and it’s claimed the Nigerian winger wants to continue his career at Galatasaray next season.last_img read more

England begin 2019 World Cup quest against S.Africa

Posted on

first_img(Reuters) – Hosts England will begin their quest for a maiden 50-overs World Cup title against perennial under-achievers South Africa on May 30 next year with Lord’s staging the final on July 14, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced yesterday. One-day cricket’s most coveted trophy has eluded three-times finalists England who staged the first three World Cups between 1975-1983 and also in 1999.  England could not advance beyond the group stage of the 2015 edition but have since grown into a formidable ODI outfit, rekindling hopes of breaking their World Cup duck on home soil.They begin against a South Africa side who have never been beyond the semi-finals.Ashes rivals Australia, currently recovering from a ball-tampering scandal, will begin their title defence against plucky qualifiers Afghanistan on June 1 at Bristol. Cricket Australia is searching for a new one-day captain after slapping 12-month bans on former skipper Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner following last month’s fiasco in South Africa.While both will be free to play in the tournament, Smith has also been barred from captaincy for two years, while Warner will not be considered for any leadership role again.Old Trafford will host the 10-team tournament’s most-anticipated match on June 16 between Asian arch-rivals India and Pakistan. The collapse of bilateral cricket between the bitter South Asian neighbours means their fans can only watch them in ICC events.“Because of the UK’s diverse population, every competing team will also be guaranteed a ‘home crowd’ every time they play at some of the most iconic cricket grounds in the world,” the tournament’s managing director Steve Elworthy said in a statement.“The Cricket World Cup is the third most watched global event and has huge interest and appeal among cricket fans. Our ambition is to grow the game and deliver the greatest ever cricket celebration…,” he added. The 46-day tournament will be played across 11 venues in England and Wales with Manchester’s Old Trafford venue hosting six matches.The tournament will follow its 1992 format with all 10 teams playing each other in the round-robin league to determine the four teams who will advance to the semi-finals at Old Trafford and Edgbaston.Lord’s will host a World Cup final for the fifth time. “We know from previous ICC events that every country will be proudly supported at each of the venues creating an exceptional atmosphere and a real celebration of the game,” ICC chief executive Dave Richardson said.last_img read more

England players donate, take pay cuts amid coronavirus shutdown

Posted on

first_imgLONDON, (Reuters) – England’s centrally contracted male cricketers will donate 500,000 pounds ($613,000) to the Board and charities while their women’s team counterparts have volunteered a three-month pay cut amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the players’ association (PCA) said. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has said the season will not start before May 28 and speculation has been mounting over how their leading players would respond to the situation.“Following a meeting today of all of the England men’s centrally contracted cricketers, the players have agreed to make an initial donation of £0.5m to the ECB and to selected good causes …” the Professional Cricketers’ Association said in a statement on Friday.“This contribution is the equivalent of all of the England centrally contracted players taking a 20% reduction in their monthly retainers for the next three months. “The players will continue to discuss with the ECB the challenging situation faced by the game and society as a whole and will consider how best to support the ECB and both the cricketing and wider community going forward.”The ECB’s centrally contracted women players have volunteered to take a salary reduction for the months of April, May and June in line with their coaches and support staff.England women’s captain Heather Knight said: “All the players felt like it was the right response in the current climate to take a pay cut in line with what our support staff are taking. “We know how the current situation is affecting the game and we want to help as much as we can.“We will be discussing with the ECB further ways we can help the game in the coming weeks,” added Knight, who has signed up with the National Health Service (NHS) as a volunteer.The ECB has announced a 61 million pounds aid package to help the local game withstand the financial impact of the pandemic. Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler is currently auctioning the shirt he wore in England’s 2019 World Cup final victory to raise funds for efforts to fight the coronavirus.last_img read more
