If there is a player in the Atlético squad that Represent above the rest the cholismo is Koke. The mattress captain is the only what has lived together from day one with Simeone, when it was still a promise of the quarry (19 years) and while its future was settled between continuing on the team, where Diego, Arda Turan, Raúl García, Reyes or Salvio He had options to play or leave for EuroMálaga. The player himself has recognized several times how The talk with Simeone was key to follow. The message: if he continued working like this he would end up playing and Koke got down to work. Since then, and With Diego’s departure in that summer of 2012, the midfielder’s role became capital. His 2013-14 season to get the League title, with 13 assists in the national championship, or his 2015-16 year, where he got 14, have led the ‘6’ rojiblanco to be LaLiga’s most assistant medium in the last decade. Atlético dried LiverpoolAnd before Liverpool appeared the Atlético de los grandes noche en Champions. A rocky team, almost impossible to overcome in the melee and with an aid system that wove a spider web on the English team, which he left the Wanda Metropolitano without finishing the goal in the whole match. Koke returned to practice as the rojiblanco fire extinguisher, without stopping running to plug any hole that Liverpool could find. In the first half on the right wing stopping Robertson and Mané, completely surpassed and that he was replaced at the break after seeing a yellow and committing a final foul where the Atlético players, with Koke in the lead, asked for his second warning. In the second, with the entry of Llorente by Lemar, He went on to play on the left to lend a hand to an outstanding Lodi on Alexander-Arnold and Salah.And it is no accident that reds you look in their attacks in the first half on the left mattress, trying to surpass Lemar and Lodi and on the right in the second, with Llorente and Vrsaljko, since Koke’s profile is much more complicated to pass. The ‘6’ left a master class on how to help the partner, a dark showy work showing a physical beating to multiply. Of his boots came the corner that after playing in Fabinho led to Saul’s goal which gives advantage in the elimination to the mattress team. He also finished as the second player of the team with more passes completed (24), only surpassed by Thomas (26). What has become clear during his absence and subsequent return is that Atlético is much more cholista when Koke is in the middle. Although that offensive production of Koke in recent seasons has declined, its importance for the Cholo remains maximum, something that is exaggerated during his absences. In the midfielder’s last muscle injury, suffered during the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup against BarcelonaAtletico played five games with a balance of four defeats, one of them in the Super Cup final against Madrid and another in the Cup against Cultural Leonesa and a draw at home against Leganés. With his return to the green the triumphs have returned, but also the mattress identity has returned. With the loss of heavy weights in the workforce as Gabi, Godín or formerly Raúl García, the koke paper as to leadership He had to increase drastically. The ‘6’ is Simeone’s hand on the field, the player who must send the pressure and fulfill the coach’s plan from within the green. After returning to the eleven with a win against Granada, where Koke gave the assistance of the goal to Correa, in Valencia could see a completely recognizable Atlético with a very high pressure about the central exit played. The stopped ball left the rojiblanco team without victory in Mestalla despite the good image offered mainly in the first part.
Jorginho James was on a mission on Monday night – a mission to prove that he was good enough, and he did just that in the Red Stripe Premier League as he led Harbour View to a thumping 5-0 over UWI.Smarting from his ‘rejection’ by the US Major League Soccer (MLS), the ambitious 21-year-old box-to-box midfielder felt that there was only one way to handle the issue – perform.”I have been working very hard on the training ground. I have been away and things did not work out the way I wanted them to, but I came back here to prove something, to show that they made a mistake when they did not choose me in that (MLS) combine, so for me personally, it is good and I have a lot more to work on in my game to get overseas,” said the former Papine, Wolmer’s and Kingston College student.James, who showed his qualities with a goal-scoring debut for the Reggae Boyz as a 17 year-old, was Harbour View’s best player on the night, as he scored the first goal for Harbour View in the fourth minute, had a hand in the second and scored the fifth, as they spanked the promoted UWI outfit.John-Ross Campbell (51st), Brian Brown (71st) and substitute Rojay Smith (78th) scored the other goals for the team, which improved its tally to 33 points and narrowed the gap on fourth-placed Humble Lion to two points.”I was not disappointed in my performance in the MLS combine because I went over there and did well. I think it was some administrative matters that caused it not to work and not about the performance that I gave on the field.”I did well. My agent has talked to me and told me that I have nothing to worry about. He said I will be back there and will be in even better situations, so I have come back and refocus on getting the balls in the back of the net. This is important for myself and the club,” James said.James admitted that not having the contract he thought he would have had at this time especially after an opportunity to play professionally in Japan also fell through can be frustrating.Having had just one national cap after making his debut for a total of two, James said it is not enough for him and the desire to get back into the fold burns in his belly.BACK ON NAT’L SIDE”It most definitely is my plan to get back into the national team. That is what I am working on. It is hard for us to get called up from the local league, so I am putting in the work to get overseas and it will be much easier for me. It is there in the making to come. It will come,” he declared.But the only way to get abroad is to do the work at, ‘yard’ and part of that is personal performance and winning with the team.”I am most elated about the win this evening. We have been training hard, and the players are dedicated. I feel very good to know that the team scored five goals tonight. The way we did it also was very good. It was not just a one player, but a number of different players. It is very good for the club, the fans and the coaching staff.”We are gunning for the championship. That is why we are playing not just to compete, but to win the competition not only this season, but every season,” the very focused player said.POINTS STANDINGTeams P W D L GF GA GD PtsArnett 23 13 4 6 35 20 15 43Portmore 23 13 4 6 28 20 8 43MoBay Utd 23 11 9 3 34 13 21 42H Lion FC 23 9 8 6 21 18 3 35H.View 23 8 9 6 28 22 6 33UWI FC 23 8 6 9 24 34 -10 30Cavalier SC 23 7 6 10 18 23 -5 27Boys’ Town 23 7 6 10 25 33 -8 27Reno 23 6 9 8 22 30 -8 27Rivoli 22 5 7 10 23 30 -7 22W’house 23 4 9 10 20 28 -8 21Tivoli 22 5 5 12 24 31 -7 20

First Lady Sandra Granger on Wednesday morning encouraged the delegates in the Mother and Daughter Pageant to be strong and confident and to push back against disrespect in their daily lives.First Lady Sandra Granger (centre); the founder and producer of the Supa-Stylistics Mother and Daughter Pageant, Ingrid Fung (left) and Dr Sulan Fung (right); and the delegates in all of the categories of the pageant, in the Baridi Benab at State HouseThe First Lady made these comments during a courtesy call the group and organisers paid on her at her State House office.“Every time you look around, you see the image of women being battered… “If we’re always afraid; we will always be battered and people will begin to believe that it is normal, so we have to begin to start pushing back,” the First Lady said.The First Lady also advised the delegates to stay true to themselves by holding firm to their values, educating themselves and by cultivating self-confidence so that they can fight against the negative stereotypes of women that are often publicised.“So, we have to start somewhere… I would like to see that when our young girls grow up, they don’t think of being somebody’s assistant or secretary, they look to becoming Chief Executive Officer, Presidents and the Ministers in charge,” she said.Meanwhile, Producer of the pageant, Dr Sulan Fung, said the organisers took the decision to arrange a meeting with the First Lady and the delegates because they view her as a role model for women. “We see her as the epitome of what a Guyanese woman should be and we wanted our mothers, our women, our children to have her as an example,” she said.
Justice Simone Morris-Romlall has ordered that one of the accused in the Tain domestic worker murder be set free.Lilawatie MuhammedThe ruling came following submissions from Attorney-at-Law Murseline Bacchus challenging the committal of Nazeema Permaul to stand trial in the High Court for murder.The action was filed against the Director of Public Prosecutions, the police and the Director of Prisons.Bacchus quoted a number of authorities, both local and overseas, and cited a number of deficiencies in the prosecution case.The businesswoman was committed in November last to stand trial for the execution style killing of domestic worker Lelawattie Mohamed at her Lot 149, Sixth Street, Tain Settlement, Corentyne, Berbice home on February 7, 2017.Following the committal of Permaul, her husband, Oliver Permaul, Andre James and Rohan Johnson, Bacchus filed a writ at the Berbice High Court asking for a review.According to the writ, there is no direct evidence against the 42-year-old woman for the murder. The Magistrate at the committal proceedings did not hold a usual Preliminary Inquiry. She held one by way of paper committal.Nazeema PermaulThe writ noted that the function of a Magistrate is to ensure that no one is sent to trial unless a prima facie case is made out against them.“I urge that you bear in mind that for the Magistrate to have lawfully committed the applicant, she had to use the statements tendered by the prosecution and nothing more, as those statements stand in the place of sworn testimony normally given at a regularly Preliminary Inquiry”, the attorney stated.The writ called on the Judge to order that Permaul be released from prison. During the Preliminary Inquiry into the execution of a domestic worker on the Corentyne, Shabikie Albert, one of the five accused, was set free by Magistrate Charlyn Artiga at the Whim Magistrate’s Court.Permaul was alleged to have been hired by Indira Outar, the alleged mastermind, who was set free by Magistrate Charlyn Artiga last year.Mohamed was killed execution style when two masked men broke into her home and demanded money under the pretext of a robbery. She was shot at close range to her head.It had been reported that Nazeema Permaul was the mastermind of a plot to kill Mohamed. It was also reported that Permaul allegedly paid $400,000 to have the woman executed.Mohamed was involved in an extra-marital relationship with Permaul’s husband. Following the application to have Permaul released, Justice Simone Morris-Romlall ordered she be set free.

Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 9- Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi wants consistency from his impressive side as they aim to keep their unbeaten start to the 2018 season intact with a potentially explosive tie against AFC Leopards on Saturday.Kimanzi’s squad which has grown together from a young inexperienced side last season has won three and drawn two of their first five matches of the season sitting second in the standings and Kimanzi wants them to exhibit the same hunger against AFC. “It is a very tough game against a very good opponent and definitely the plan always is to do better than you did last time. We have enjoyed a very good start to the season and if we can keep that consistency going on, I think the future is bright,” the tactician said ahead of the Saturday afternoon tie.Kimanzi’s squad which has grown together from a young inexperienced side last season has won three and drawn two of their first five matches of the season sitting second in the standings and Kimanzi wants them to exhibit the same hunger against AFC.He adds that playing in a better surface at the Kenyatta Stadium will offer his team a bigger incentive to continue with their passing and movement philosophy especially having struggled to keep to their tact in last weekend’s tie against Thika United which ended 1-1.“We have to keep working hard, keep working for each other and things will improve for us. This will be a very interesting game for us and hopefully we can once agin show that we are a good side,” the tactician further noted.-Head-to-head record-Mathare United midfielder Alphonce Ndonye attempts to turn away from AFC Leopards’ Duncan Otieno in a Kenyan Premier League match at the Nyayo National Stadium on June 17, 2017.

Mathare have a slight advantage having won five of the remaining nine fixtures and lost four.Both last season’s matches ended in 0-0 draws while the previous two in 2016 ended 1-1 and in 2015 they played to 1-1 and 0-0 draws in both encounters. Mathare United was the last to enjoy victory in this fixture and it came in four years ago in 2014 when they won 2-1.They had won 1-0 in the first leg of that season as well. AFC’s last victory against Mathare was in 2012 when they won 4-2.Four points separate the two sides in the standings with Ingwe having played a match less.The 13-time Kenyan Premier League champions will still be without suspended head coach Robert Matano with his assistant Dennis Kitambi tasked with leading them out for another match.His first assignment last weekend ended in a 2-0 win away to Sony Sugar and the Tanzanian coach hopes he can keep the side winning to close in on the top four.-Early kick-off-Sofapaka FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa issues instructions during a training session at te Eastleigh High School on January 11, 2017.

The two sides drew 0-0 home and away in their first ever league meeting last year.However, Batoto ba Mungu are still reeling from the 3-1 defeat inflicted on them by Sharks in the GOtv Shield semi-finals and they will be eager to land late revenge when they clash on Saturday.The two lie side by side on the KPL log, Sofapaka at third with nine points while Sharks are fourth with eight.Sofapaka assistant coach John Baraza, ahead of the meeting is cautious that it will be a very tough side.“I think Sharks should be considered as title contenders because looking at their performance from last season, they have showed that they are a good side. This will be a very tough match for us,” Baraza noted.Batoto ba Mungu have managed to stabilize their ship after a shaky start and the back to back wins over Posta Rangers and AFC Leopards have increased their confidence, with Baraza admitting they had taken time to gel.Kariobangi Sharks players celebrate one of their goals in a Kenyan Premier League fixture against Wazito at the Camp Toyoyo ground on March 4, 2018.

I am really impressed with how we are playing and people should watch out for us,” noted the former forward.Meanwhile in other fixtures on Saturday, Thika United will be searching for their first win of the season when they face Tusker FC at the Ruaraka Complex, a side that has won only one match this season.Thika has beaten the brewers in their last three encounters including home and away victories last season without conceding a goal. They won 2-0 in the first leg in Machakos and followed that up with a 1-0 win in Ruaraka.Head coach Nicholas Muyoti is upbeat that his side can pick their fourth consecutive win over Sam Ssimbwa’s side.“Just like us, they face the same challenge of rebuilding but for them, they have very experienced players who have been in the league before. We lost two key defenders at the end of last season while two others are injured which makes our consistency at the back a bit shaky,”“But we have worked on that in training this week and we should be able to get something off that game,” Muyoti whose side has drawn three and lost two of their first five matches said.Tusker’s Ssimbwa is looking to put his foot on the ground as his new look Tusker is yet to get its taste and the Thika match will be yet another test for him to go through. They lost last weekend against Ulinzi Stars and for a coach who seldom loses back to back, this will make for an interesting watch.Kenyan Premier League weekend fixtures:Saturday: Kariobangi Sharks v Sofapaka, Mathare United v AFC Leopards (Machakos), Kakamega Homeboyz v Ulinzi Stars (Bukhungu), Posta Rangers v Wazito (Narok), Tusker FC v Thika United (Ruaraka), Zoo Kericho v Vihiga United (Kericho).Sunday: Bandari v Sony Sugar (Mombasa), Nakumatt v Chemelil, Gor Mahia v Nzoia Sugar (Machakos).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
