Delph: Guardiola is fantastic, a genius

first_imgManchester City Delph: Man City boss Guardiola is a genius Chris Burton 07:11 6/12/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Fabian Delph Pep Guardiola Manchester City Clive Brunskill Manchester City Guardiola England Premier League World Cup The versatile England international has credited his boss at the Etihad Stadium for having made him the player now preparing for World Cup 2018 duty Fabian Delph has hailed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola as “a genius”, with the Catalan credited with having made the versatile 28-year-old a Premier League champion and World Cup performer.The 2017-18 campaign proved to be the most productive to date for the man who moved to the Etihad Stadium from Aston Villa in 2015.Delph took in 29 appearances across all competitions, with Guardiola having opted to use him as left-back cover following an unfortunate injury to Benjamin Mendy.

Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Domestic dominance was secured with a league title and Carabao Cup success, with international recognition then achieved in time to make Gareth Southgate’s England squad heading to Russia 2018.Delph is delighted with the progress he has made, telling reporters of the role Guardiola has played: “He’s fantastic. For me, he is a genius.“He has opened my eyes to so much. I didn’t picture football like Pep does. He’s painted the pictures for me.“I stayed mentally strong, and I knew if I got my opportunity to play I could contribute and help the lads win games.“I’m a very traditional English guy who believes in hard work and dedication and giving it absolutely everything. I’m there to fight and pick up second balls, to be that old English type of player, but he has reinvented me.“Now it’s all about being calm and collected on the ball, being sensible in terms of if someone occupies my position then I need to occupy a different position.“Pep smells the danger. We’ve got so many systems the way we played. Everybody seems to think, ‘Wow, what are they doing?’ But it is very simple.“Basically we move the ball very fast, we take as few touches as possible and we stay in the positions, we utilise the spaces and distances perfectly and we have the courage to play out and build up from the back.“And we work on it daily. Every session we do there is always an aim to it, there is always a reason why we are doing a certain exercise, not just having a five-a-side for the sake of it and fitness work. Everything is geared towards the game and the team we are playing next.”Fabian Delph EnglandHard work has earned Delph further England opportunities, with the man who forged his reputation as a hard-working midfielder prepared to play wherever he is required for the Three Lions this summer as they go in search of global glory.He added on the position he considers to be his best: “I’ll give you the textbook answer – wherever the team needs me I’ll be there to give 100 per cent.“If it’s left-back, centre midfielder, defensive or attacking, I’ll give 100 per cent. If it’s in goal I’ll play there – but I will be rubbish!”last_img read more

Morocco 1 Benin 1 (1-4 on pens)

first_imgHakim Ziyech’s missed spot-kick at the end of normal time proved costly as Morocco suffered a shock 4-1 penalty shoot-out defeat to Benin in Friday’s action-packed opening Africa Cup of Nations last-16 tie, which ended 1-1.Much-fancied Morocco won all three of their group matches by a 1-0 scoreline and were overwhelming favourites to overcome a Benin side who progressed with three successive draws, and were debutants in the knockout rounds.But Ziyech missed a penalty six minutes into added time after Youssef En-Nesyri had scored late on to cancel out Moise Adilehou’s opener against the run of play.

Power dept gets Rs 700 cr grant to modernise generation distribution

first_imgKolkata: The state government has given Rs 700 crore to the state Power department for modernisation of generation and distribution of power in the state. A major objective behind the move is to reduce hazards in power generation and distribution.”We are taking several steps to prevent fatalities due to electrocution. Workers in the electrical industry and power transmission and generation industry are most susceptible to occupational hazards created out of fly ash, carbon dioxide emission etc. The state government, in order to mitigate the risks in the electrical industry, is using AV cables and also dividing the length of transmission, thereby minimising the potential risk,” state Power and Non-Conventional Energy Sources minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay said at the national conference on “Occupational Health and Safety- Towards a Healthy and Safe Workplace,” organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) on Friday. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaElaborating on the steps taken by his department, the minister said they are using SEEDN technology which helps in locating the exact area of a fault while moving from the substation located at a particular area from where the fault has been reported. The technology is equipped with a fault passage indicator, which helps in quickly identifying the location of the electric pole where there has been a problem. Earlier, engineers from the Power department had to travel long distances and check every single pole to identify the exact place where the fault had occurred. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers”Our department, with the objective of sustainable and uninterrupted power connection, has taken up a project of underground cable system for power supply in 74 urban townships across the state. We have set a target of 2025 for completion of this underground power supply project. We are taking up an average of 11 urban townships a year for installing this facility and work is on full swing,” a senior official in the department said. Speakers at the seminar deliberated that globally, 340 million people are affected by occupational hazards and around 140 million people are affected by occupational diseases. This figure roughly leads to loss of 4 percent of GDP in a year. Thus, special emphasis on more research on this field is needed. Also, industry academia partnership is the need of the hour for more integrated development of Occupational Health Hazards (OHH), they stated.last_img read more

At UN General Debate Lithuania calls for ban on use of energy

“We need to make existing inequalities in access to energy a source of cooperation, not tensions,” President Grybauskaite told the 67th General Assembly on the first day of the annual General Debate.Noting the need to increase global energy sustainability, Ms. Grybauskaite hailed Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which aims to provide universal energy access, double the rate of global energy efficiency improvement, and double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.“The use of energy dependency as an instrument for political or economic blackmail must be eliminated,” she stressed, calling for international agreements stipulating that the use of energy to gain political goals is unacceptable.“Responsibility for violations should be also clear and unavoidable,” the Lithuanian leader added. “We have to grant international institutions greater discretion to launch probes and impose sanctions on activities that hinder the free flow of energy resources, impede diversification or set unfair prices for customers.”President Grybauskaite also highlighted the need for nuclear safety, without which she said there could be no sustainability, development or peaceful cooperation, and called for nuclear safety standards to be strengthened, with international obligations adopted if needed.Scores of the world’s heads of State and government and other high-level officials are expected to present their views and comment on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October. read more

Mens basketball Keita BatesDiop on track to allBig Ten — notebook from

Ohio State redshirt senior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) guards a Michigan player on an inbound play in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop allowed a transition dunk from William & Mary leading scorer Nathan Knight less than two minutes into the game. Head coach Chris Holtmann had enough.At the first media timeout, Holtmann sat Bates-Diop for a lack of effort on defense with the Buckeyes trailing the Tribe 12-10. Two minutes later, Bates-Diop checked back into the game and had one of the best games of his career.He scored a career-high 27 points and made 11-of-16 shots to lead Ohio State to a 97-62 blowout victory against William & Mary on Saturday.“I think it kind of just helped because it reset my mind,” Bates-Diop said. “I obviously wasn’t ready to play in those first few minutes so then him taking me out reset my mind, got back in and I was ready to play.”Bates-Diop played at the small forward, power forward and center against William & Mary, creating difficult matchups at each position. When Knight exited the first half with his third foul with 7:49 remaining, the Buckeyes attacked the paint with Bates-Diop and freshman center Kaleb Wesson — who scored 17 — leading the way.Ohio State shot 65 percent from the field and made 11-of-21 3-point attempts.William & Mary entered the game ranked 316th in adjusted defensive efficiency, according to KenPom. So before discussing the Buckeyes a prolific offensive team, take Saturday’s game with a grain of salt. However, it’s time to start considering Bates-Diop as a possible first-team all-Big Ten player.In Ohio State’s two conference games this season against Wisconsin and Michigan, Bates-Diop shot at least 50 percent and made two triples in each game . He’s averaging 17.5 points and 10.5 rebounds. He’s now averaging more than 18 points and nine rebounds per game with six double-doubles.Against Ohio State’s toughest opponent to date, Gonzaga, Bates-Diop grabbed 10 rebounds, but scored just seven points. If he’s going to become Ohio State’s first all-Big Ten player since the 2014-15 season, he will have to put up consistent performances against the conference’s bluebloods of Michigan State and Purdue.Holtmann said Friday before the game that sometimes it takes an extra reminder for a quieter player like Bates-Diop to get going. It appeared to work Saturday.“It’s just the mindset,” Bates-Diop said. “He’s doing a great job getting me there, it’s on me obviously, but he’s not afraid obviously to sit me for any stretch of time if I’m not doing those things I need to be doing. Obviously that worked, clearly.”Kaleb WessonIt’s probably time to conclude the center position belongs to Kaleb Wesson. Since Micah Potter went down with an injury in the second-half against Northeastern, the freshman has started every game in Potter’s place and has continued to improve.Saturday, Wesson tied a career high with seven rebounds — four of which were on the offensive glass — and recorded three steals, two assists and two blocks. He faced a double team in the post on almost every possession, which was when perhaps he displayed his most impressive talent yet by throwing cross-court passes on the mark for wide-open shooters in the corner.“He can read traps and double teams,” Holtmann said. “Eventually he’ll get to the point where he’ll command a double team most every game … his passing will really allow us to play through that.”Ohio State is not going to overwhelm any team with its shooting, which might be a reason teams will double Wesson more and risk leaving shooters open. Wesson’s passing ability, as Holtmann touched on, could lead to an increase in confidence in those shooters.“He’s been doing it all summer,” redshirt senior guard Kam Williams said. “He’s been doing it in practice, so he’s just going out there and displaying his talents. We all believe in him, so this isn’t really a surprise for us.”Another thing to continue to watch in Wesson is the big man’s footwork. The rebounds he was able to grab Saturday were because he put himself in great position against a defender. His footwork also allowed him to maneuver in the post off pump-fakes. If there is one thing to watch in Wesson as he moves forward as the starter at center, it would be his fouls. He finished the game with four fouls for the third straight game and the sixth time overall this season. He has fouled out twice. Holtmann has said throughout the season he expects Wesson to run into foul trouble, and that could be what separates him from seeing starter minutes when Potter returns.C.J. Jackson and Musa Jallow switchJunior guard C.J. Jackson returned to the starting lineup Saturday with freshman forward Musa Jallow heading back to the bench. Jackson was moved to the bench following a loss to Clemson, in a game he turned the ball over five times and had three assists. Since then, he had turned the ball over three times with six assists in two games. He continued that production Saturday.Jackson dished out six assists with only one turnover. He scored 16 points on 4-of-5 shooting from 3-point range.William & Mary is ranked 345th of 351 teams in opponent turnover percentage. Holtmann said the test for Jackson’s newly found poise in running the point will be against teams that create turnovers.“But so far, he’s been able to make more poised, smart decisions with the ball,” he said. “And he’s, offensively, really impacting the game with his ability to make 3s.”TidbitsThe Buckeyes were thin on the bench Saturday with freshman forward Kyle Young sitting out with a sprained ankle. Holtmann said he will probably be available next Saturday against Appalachian State. If Ohio State is to lose any bench depth at a position, it’s probably best at the small forward or power forward because Bates-Diop can be moved around and create matchup problems for traditional centers.The 3-point shooting for Ohio State has risen substantially in the past three games. The Buckeyes are now shooting 36.2 percent from 3, following another 50-plus percent day beyond the arc. In the past two games, Ohio State missed all 11 3-point shots in the second half, but that factor was mitigated by strong first-half 3-point shooting against Wisconsin and Michigan. Ohio State was 7-for-8 in the first half against the Badgers and 5-for-8 against Michigan.“I think we’re taking better ones. I think that’s probably it,” Holtmann said. “I think we’re taking a higher quality of 3s than what we took at times early in the year.Ohio State also defended the 3-point line well Saturday against a William & Mary team that makes more than 12 shots from deep per game. The Tribe was 5-for-16 Saturday. Holtmann said when drawing up a game plan, he remembered a conversation he had with college basketball statistical analyst Ken Pomeroy about teams who shoot at incredibly efficient levels like William & Mary.“What’s really key is limited their attempts,” he said. “Now that extends you and opens you up to slips and drives, and that effects your 2-point field goal percentage a bit. But I’ve seen those guys shoot through eight games and if we were going to allow them to shoot 28 to 30 3s, they’re going to make 14 or 15 of those and we’re in trouble. So we did try to limit their attempts and that was important for us.” read more
