Man City take fight to UEFA on and off the field

first_imgManchester City may be set to go to war with UEFA, but time is of the essence for the English champions to satisfy their quest to win the Champions League. Manchester City fans have voiced their distrust of UEFA City head to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, knowing failure to beat 13-time winners Real Madrid over two legs could be their final European adventure for two years. UEFA slapped a stunning two-season ban on City earlier this month for overstating sponsorship income between 2012 and 2016 to breach Financial Fair Play rules and failing to cooperate once an investigation was re-opened following the leak of internal emails to German magazine Der Spiegel. City remain belligerent and insist they will beat UEFA off the field. An appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport will decide their fate for the next two years. In the meantime, Pep Guardiola’s men have to finally get it right on the field to satisfy City’s long-wait to conquer Europe. Read Also: UCL: Lampard hopeful Chelsea underdogs can bite Bayern again Moreover, doing so this season would have the added benefit of sticking it to UEFA by capturing their flagship competition. “I can’t believe they’re in the competition now. What would happen if City win this season?” Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports. “UEFA will be desperate for Man City to be beaten by Madrid.” All the more reason for City to not give European football’s governing body the satisfaction. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 “If we don’t win it everybody is going to say we are failures like the last five years,” said midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. “It’s something we’ve not won yet.” The only two Champions League winners in City’s squad are back-up goalkeepers Claudio Bravo and Scott Carson. Motivation could not be greater for a host of world class players like De Bruyne, David Silva and Sergio Aguero to cap their careers with Champions League success.

Even before the latest body blow of a European ban, the City support have not been enamoured by their new status as Champions League regulars. The club have had to turn to social media influencers to try and sell tickets for group matches and the competition’s anthem is routinely jeered. “UEFA Cartel” and “UEFA Mafia” were among the banners that greeted their first home outing since the ban was handed down against West Ham last week. Now in their ninth season of Champions League football since Sheikh Mansour’s takeover transformed the club’s fortunes, City are still waiting for a landmark knockout win in the competitionA run to the semi-finals before being beaten by Madrid in 2015⁄16 is their best ever showing in the competition. Despite re-writing the history books domestically, Guardiola’s star-studded squad have fallen at the quarter-finals to English opposition in each of the past two seasons. The contrast with Madrid could not be starker. For generations, Real have risen to the occasion on the Champions League stage, while City have crumbled under the pressure. A former Barcelona coach and player, Guardiola hailed his old foes the “kings of Europe.” And in an interview with Spanish newspaper AS last week, City’s Raheem Sterling insisted: “There is no better challenge than Real Madrid.” Pep Guardiola’s legacy at Manchester City may be defined by what happens in the Champions League last 16 tie against Real Madrid Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayTV Characters Who Hated Each Other But Later Became Friends7 Facts About Black Holes That Will Blow Your MindGorgeous Asian Actresses All Men Are Crazy AboutWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?What Happens When You Eat Eggs Every Single Day?The Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love WithThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Europa would be ‘special’ – Koeman

first_img “But for us – and I think for Swansea, I think for Stoke – it’s a big achievement to play in Europe. “There is no issue that we will do everything to reach that possibility. “What will happen afterwards, we will see how we have to handle that, but it will be a great achievement for the club if we reach European football.” Southampton may need a deeper squad to handle the additional workload, but Koeman insists he will continue to prioritise the club’s youth system when looking for new players. “Would we have to change our transfer plans? Maybe,” the Dutchman said. “But first we will always look to the under-21 players because that’s the future of the club. “We also have some players on loan – we have to make decisions about those players. “It’s possible that we need one or two players more and more numbers in the squad if you play European football. “But first we have to win and then we will see what happens in the summer.” Press Association Southampton host Aston Villa on Saturday, knowing victory will move them four points clear of Swansea in eighth, before Garry Monk’s side entertain in-form Manchester City on Sunday. “If we win, we will have a good possibility to achieve the sixth or the seventh position in the table and that makes the season a special one in my opinion,” Koeman said. “It’s always difficult because if someone offered me a paper in pre-season to finish eighth or seventh in the table, I would have asked, ‘where can I sign that paper?’ “But, of course, the feeling in the last part of the season is also important and, of course, you have to look back to the whole season. “It will be a good season for Southampton but if we don’t reach the sixth or seventh position, you end the season with a little bit of a different feeling.” The merits of qualifying for the Europa League are questionable given the number of extra matches the competition demands and the difficult of balancing Thursday night games with league fixtures at the weekend. It has been suggested teams like Tottenham and Liverpool would stand a better chance of finishing in the top four if they avoided the tournament next season, but Koeman insists European football would be something to savour at St Mary’s. “Maybe for a big club the Europa League is not what they want – they want Champions League football,” Koeman said. The Saints are in danger of slipping out of the European spots after a run of just one win in six matches, which has left them clinging on to seventh place in the Barclays Premier League table. Only finishing fifth or sixth will guarantee the south-coast club a place in Europe’s secondary tournament, while seventh will also be enough if Arsenal win the FA Cup. Southampton manager Ronald Koeman believes his team will turn a good season into a “special” one if they hold off Swansea and secure qualification for the Europa League.last_img read more

Using Aliens to Titillate the Public

first_imgGeologists cannot even figure out our own planet (next headline), but some of them claim to know a lot about other planets – their geological history, and even their prospects for life.  Is it fair to tease the public with the L-word life when so much remains to be understood on the ground under our feet?Mars life:  A new study reported by PhysOrg from a JPL press release claims that Mars had a nearly global wet era 4 billion years ago.  Talk about water on Mars has gone back and forth for decades; was it really necessary to evolve life there by just adding water?  “The new findings suggest that the formation of water-related minerals, and thus at least part of the wet period that may have been most favorable to life, occurred between that early giant impact and the later time when younger sediments formed an overlying mantle.”  (Nobody saw that impact, by the way.)Mars hands:  “If there’s life on Mars, it could be right-handed,” teased a headline on New Scientist.  The article was about chiral molecules, but it made Mars a lively place.  Some astrobiologists have never been able to forgive the 1976 Viking landers for not finding life.  One experiment gave ambiguous results that are the basis for ongoing hopes.  They keep trying to find other explanations for the gas that Viking measured coming out of a prepared broth when Martian soil was added.  Jeffrey Bada, astrobiologist at Scripps, still thinks non-biological explanations can explain this.  “No matter how you construct an experiment, Mars is likely to throw you a curve ball,” he said.Europa bones:  An Arizona planetologist has an easier way to look for life on Europa.  PhysOrg reported how he feels one could find evidence of it on the surface without having to drill through the ice.  It might not even be microbes, Richard Greenberg (U of Arizona) said: “there’s always the possibility that we could find structures – something analogous to skeletal remains.”Starry avatars:  A JPL press release seemed to play on the public’s fascination with the recent 3-D alien movie by starting, “Many scientists speculate that our galaxy could be full of places like Pandora from the movie ‘Avatar’ — Earth-like worlds in solar systems besides our own.”  So have they found any?  Nope; just looking.  “Once considered the stuff of science fiction, it may not be long before Earth-like planets, or, in the case of Pandora, Earth-like moons of giant planets, are found to exist other places besides the silver screen.”  That was in a paragraph captioned, “Pandora, up close and personal.”  Incidentally, the real Pandora is a small moon of Saturn.  Here it is, up close and personal from Cassini.  Not quite like the movies.For SETI fans, Space.com announced that Frank Drake is retiring as director of the SETI Institute, and is turning the job of “Chief Alien Life Hunter” to long-time astrobiologist David Morrison.  Even though NASA doesn’t do SETI work, Morrison revealed an inside secret: “The SETI Institute has partnered with scientists at NASA Ames in a teaming arrangement that has greatly benefited both organizations.  The Institute played an especially important role in the development of the new multidisciplinary field of astrobiology.”  The two fields are closely allied, if for no other reason than the fact that neither has any evidence to support its reason for being.This has all the appearance of a cult (see CMI essay).  Only in this case, we have a cult funded by taxpayer dollars and preached by the mainstream media.  It’s not science if you have no evidence.  Whatever happened to separation of search and state?(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Conserving Water for Future Generations

first_imgWise Wayz Water Care (WWWC) programme is based on the South Coast of Durban- in the communities of Folweni and Ezimbokodweni. It is there where the desire grew from two community groups at grassroot level – to restore and manage the communities’ dwindling natural resources and build a sustainable project for future generations to come. The programme stemmed from humble efforts by the local citizens to empower themselves in order to mitigate the social, economic and environmental challenges that confronted them.As South Africa is a water stressed country and has been experiencing droughts and low water levels, this stimulated the community to protect the aquatic ecosystems, such as the wetlands,rivers and streams of Ezimbokodweni and Folweni.It was community members like Desmond Malgas, who is now a project coordinator, who went knocking for assistance and support from corporates and organisations, to endorse their project and indeed, the AECI Community Education and Development Trust jumped onboard. This is how the WWWC programme was born.Since its inception in 2016, the programme has been able to bring hope to the lives of the downtrodden communities of Folweni and Ezimbokodweni and has allowed them to think beyond their circumstances. Mr Malgas, alludes to how the project has personally helped him to develop and improve himself in terms of learning about governance, and the skills that he has acquired through the training he has received. He further extols that it has also allowed him “to grow, find full expression through uplifting his community and changing his mindset to see a better future”.Its three-tier model encompasses the different levels of donor, implementer and beneficiary. This project, funded by the AECI Community Education and Development Trust and implemented by i4WATER – has been able to build synergy between corporates and the community, by introducing interventions that develop sustainable livelihoods through impactful and practical measures. Some of the interventions include water conservation, food security, solid waste management, alien plant management, aquatic assessment and monitoring as well as Sinqonqozela Ulwazi (which aims to educate the community and create awareness around waste management).The Wise Wayz Water Care team with members of the AECI Community Education and Development Trust and Brand SA representatives at the interactive site visit.The programme has had a huge impact on the members who have also become beneficiaries of the project in several ways. It has been able to give the youth and elderly members a stepping stone to realising their future prospects through providing skills and knowledge on a basic, intermediate and advanced level. It has also trained and supported the commercial agriculture start-up of the project’s food security intervention by supporting community gardens. The food garden component has yielded a supply of vegetables for consumption by the community. The project recently won its first contract to get profits from their Invasive Alien Plant clearing start-up.Although they have faced several challenges, it is their vision to upscale the piloted model and continue successful sustainable change throughout the country. This keeps an implementer such as Ntswaki Ditlhale of i4WATER committed to the values and vision of the project.For more information on the Wise Wayz Water Care programme, click on the link below:You can also contact them on the following platforms:E-mail: [email protected] or [email protected]: @wwwczaFacebook: Wise Wayz Water CareWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Christian Petersen/Getty Images/AFPOAKLAND, Calif. — Damian Lillard certainly left his mark over the years at Oracle Arena, and again in perhaps his final visit to a building he frequented as an NBA-crazed boy.Lillard hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left in overtime and scored 21 points back home in Oakland, sending the Portland Trail Blazers past the Golden State Warriors 110-109 in a wild one Thursday night.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img LATEST STORIES Curry’s 33-footer with 8:42 left in the third on a pass from Draymond Green got Golden State within two, then Curry found Green for a tying layup the next time down to make it 55-all.A series of silly mistakes followed: Thompson made a steal and threw it toward midcourt and Green couldn’t keep the ball from going over the line for a backcourt violation, as Portland regained possession. Then, Green clanked a one-handed dunk try off the back of the rim. This after he had earlier thrown a pass off Thompson’s head.The Warriors missed nine of their initial 11 free throws and finished an uncharacteristic 6 for 15 at the line.“Unacceptable to miss that many free throws,” Durant said.In the opener of a home-and-home series, both teams were trying to rebound from embarrassing Christmas losses in which the 3-point shooting was dismal: Golden State following that flop to the Lakers at home and the Blazers a 117-96 defeat at Utah.In his last five games against the Warriors, Lillard has averaged 31 points, shooting 42.4 percent and 38.8 percent on 3s.“I represent this city, so when I come here I want to represent myself well. I have a lot of family and friends coming to see me play, so you’re excited about that. You’ve got energy, that’s what it is,” Lillard said.LILLARD’S ORACLE MEMORIESWhen Lillard was 9 or 10, he came to a Rockets-Warriors game with his brother and lucked into getting to take a shot on the court.“My brother and I were up at our seats and Steve Francis was doing his pregame workout and the ball bounced up and into the stands and I ran down the stairs and got it and I was going to throw it back and he was like, ‘No, come shoot it.’ And I went on the court and shot a 3 and airballed.
