Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini claims he’s not concerned by Barcelona’s form

first_img 18/02/2015 Pellegrini, who could give a Champions League debut to January signing Wifried Bony, also says he doesn’t feel pressure ahead of the clash. “Here, the only pressure that gets me, is the pressure to do well,” said Pellegrini. Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists he isn’t worried about Barcelona’s strikeforce ahead of their meeting in the Champions League round-of-16 next week. “In football three weeks are never equal,” the Chilean explained. “Three weeks ago, the club was fatal, it was a crisis, the president called for elections and now things have changed already.   CET Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar scored in the same game yet again in Barça’s 5-0 win over Levante at the weekend, but Pellegrini claims he does not fear them.  “Their forwards can’t stop scoring goals and now Madrid is in crisis. We do not know how we will be in the next duel with Barça. It depends on many things.” Harry De Cosemo Barça are due in Manchester for the first leg of their tie next Tuesday, with the return leg at Camp Nou not taking place until the middle of March.

Seven moments which have marked Neymar’s first 100 days in Paris

first_img Neymar was finally able to make his debut for PSG. With his transfer ratified and his registration transferred, he played in a win against Guingamp. Neymar scored a goal and participated in two more in an easy win. IN SPORT.ES CET Upd. at 15:18 3. THE CRITICISM OF THE BOARD Neymar’s completed his first 100 days as a Paris Saint-Germain player. After being presented as PSG’s new star, with his 222 million euros release clause paid, the Brazilian has become the leader of the French side at the expense of other great players. It’s a situation which throughout these 100 days has brought moments of happiness, but also moments of tension in the dressing room.  Neymar, accompanied by PSG president Al-Khelaifi, was officially presented in front of thousands at the Parc des Princes. “I want new challenges and to help PSG write history. I’ve not come to be the star,” he said. However, he had to wait for his debut. There was also a presentation at the Eiffel Tower and before the game against Amiens, which he watched from the stands due to registration issues. Siete datos que marcan los 100 primeros días de Neymar en el PSG 4. THE CAVANI INCIDENT 2. THE DEBUT  Neymar broke down this week. The pressure got too much for him and he responded to comments that he was not happy at Paris Saint-Germain. “What bothers me is everyone creating stories about me, with my coach and with Cavani. These things are not real, it’s not true,” he said. The good atmosphere in the PSG dressing room ended with the penalty incident. Against Lyon, Neymar and Cavani fought over who should take spot kicks, with the latter eventually taking — and missing — from 12 yards. The fallout continued for weeks after. RELATED STORIES Neymar did not forget about Barcelona. In the dressing room at Camp Nou he has good friends, but the same can’t be said for some of the club’s directors. The Brazilian didn’t wait long to criticise them, saying that Barcelona deserved a better board. Neymar has also shown his negative side on the pitch. In the game against Marseille, he was sent off for a second yellow card after reacting to a challenge. The score was 1-1 at the time, but Cavani saved Emery’s side with a stoppage-time winner. 5. THE RED CARD  1. THE PRESENTATION  7. THE TEARS  6. THE MSN  Neymar’s not hidden his good relationship with the other members of the trident he once formed part of at Barcelona, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. He’s constantly returned to Barcelona when given time off and it’s even led to talk he regrets leaving. It’s not a subject which is likely to go away, either.  Así eran nuestros dias, yo contando las noticias ���� @leomessi @luissuarez9 me alegro verlos hermanosUna publicación compartida de Nj ���� �� neymarjr (@neymarjr) el 29 de Oct de 2017 a la(s) 7:19 PDT Here are seven moments which have marked Neymar’s first 100 days in the French capital: 11/11/2017 “Neymar couldn’t stand Luis Enrique”last_img read more

Sam Houston State Names Matt Deggs Head Baseball Coach

first_img“I’m so thankful for the great opportunity that I was blessed with at Louisiana-Lafayette,” said Deggs. “I think we can do the same things at Sam Houston and everything is in place to do the same things. The support from administration and fan base is exceptional. I can’t wait to get in there and meet the team.” Prior to his stint at Arkansas, Deggs tallied a record of 187-100 as the head coach at Texarkana College. In his five-year stay at Texarkana, Deggs led the team to two Texas Eastern Athletic Conference runner-up finishes, a pair of TEAC Titles (2001-2002), and the school’s first ever trip to the Junior College World Series. Deggs served as the Louisiana-Lafayette hitting coach and third base coach, while also overseeing team personnel and recruiting. The Cajuns were a game away from the College World Series in 2014, while the squad posted the most wins in both Sun Belt and program history, finishing the season with 58 victories. Most impressive however is the fact that with all the wins, the Cajuns also won the award for best team grade point average in the Sun Belt Conference with a 3.30 GPA. After hitting just .263 with 18 home runs in 2012, the Cajuns exploded under Deggs’ direction in 2013. At the conclusion of the regular season the Cajuns were ranked inside the Top 5 in the NCAA in eight offensive categories. In two full seasons with the Ragin’ Cajun baseball program, Deggs and his aggressive “Pack Mentality” offensive style have helped the Cajuns in amassing a 101-30 overall record, a Sun Belt Conference regular season championship, a Sun Belt Conference Tournament championship and a regional championship. “I want to thank everyone, especially my wife and kids, as well as my friends and family that have stood by me through my coaching career. I will miss the guys I’m going to leave behind at ULL. I sincerely want to thank the coaches and players. Their sacrifice and dedication has led me to this opportunity at Sam Houston,” Deggs said. HUNTSVILLE, Texas – Matt Deggs joins Sam Houston State as the school’s eighth head baseball coach, Athletics Director Bobby Williams announced Friday. The former hitting coach for Louisiana-Lafayette, Texas A&M and Arkansas will bring his aggressive offensive approach to the Bearkats. For the second straight season Deggs guided an offense that was revered as the best in college baseball. Louisiana-Lafayette finished the season ranked in the top 10 in the nation in 14 offensive categories and had an OPS of .902. “This was an unbelievable search process. We talked with so many great people about our baseball program,” Bobby Williams said. “All of the finalists were great but we feel that Matt Deggs is the best person to lead our program in the future.” Deggs inherits a team that has won three straight Southland titles and played in three straight NCAA Regionals while winning 121 games over that stretch. The Bearkats have appeared in the NCAA postseason in six of the last eight seasons. The squads also produced two trips to the NCAA tournament, the school’s first ever national seed, 15 all-conference athletes, a Sun Belt player of the year, a conference tournament MVP, the program’s first ever member of Team USA (Blake Trahan) and three All-Americans and two Freshmen All-Americans. A formal introduction of Deggs will be scheduled for a later date.center_img Deggs is married to the former Kathy Saldua and the couple has a son, Kyler, and two daughters, Klaire and Khloe. Deggs was an infielder at Alvin Junior College from 1991-92 and at Northwood University from 1993-94. Deggs received his master’s degree from Northwestern State in December of 1996. The Cajuns became the first team in Sun Belt history to host both an NCAA regional and super regional. The team also earned the school’s first-ever national seed in the NCAA tournament. The regional appearance marks 10 NCAA Regional squads for Deggs with three different programs (Arkansas, Texas A&M, Louisiana-Lafayette). The Ragin’ Cajuns became the first team in the history of ULL athletics to earn top billing in the nation in any sport with a No. 1 ranking in the Collegiate Baseball weekly poll. He played professionally for three years for the Mobile (Ala.) Baysharks and the Tennessee Tomahawks, two of which were spent as a player/coach under former Boston Red Sox manager Butch Hobson and former Red Sox catcher Mike O’Berry. “I am very humbled and honored to have this opportunity and it is a privilege for me and my family to come be a part of Sam Houston State,” Deggs said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to lead the Bearkats in this new era of baseball and to be a great steward of the program that Mark Johnson and David Pierce did such a great job leading. We’re ready to hit the ground running.” Deggs spent three seasons at the University of Arkansas as the hitting coach and recruiting coordinator for Dave Van Horn from 2003 to 2005. The Razorbacks appeared in the NCAA tournament in each of his three seasons and made a trip to the College World Series in 2004. The No. 1 ranking marked the third time in Deggs career that he was a member of a program that was ranked inside of the top 5 during a season, including two teams that ascended to the No. 1 spot in the nation. Following the program’s second Sun Belt Tournament championship, the Cajuns were tabbed as the unanimous No. 1 team headed into the NCAA Tournament. Deggs spent the 1996 and 1997 seasons as the hitting and infield coach at Northwestern State under Van Horn, helping the Demons to the Southland Conference Title in 1997. His Infield units ranked among the top infield groups in the country in both seasons. With the improved production, the Cajuns once again found themselves in postseason play. ULL was awarded the No. 2 seed at the Baton Rouge Regional where the Cajuns rallied from an opening loss to Sam Houston, to ultimately fall in the regional final to host LSU. Prior to joining the Cajuns staff, Deggs previously served as associate head coach at Texas A&M for Rob Childress from 2006-2011. While in College Station, Deggs coached third base, oversaw, and ran the Aggie offense in addition to overseeing team personnel. “This is such an exciting opportunity. The two schools (SHSU & ULL) are very comparable, from a facility standpoint, from a fan-base standpoint and from the support of the administration. Sam Houston is in such a great location, being a part of the Houston area and in the heart of the state of Texas. I’m going to come in and make the most of it,” said Deggs.last_img read more

Your Grandma’s Secret Recipe Probably Came From a Cookbook

first_imgAnd the majority of people said YES, they’ve found out the secret family recipe wasn’t an original invention after all. The website Atlas Obscura recently ran an informal survey where they asked people if they had ever found out an old secret family recipe was really just plagiarized from a cookbook . . . or just their grandma baking a Betty Crocker cake mix. The most common recipes that people plagiarize are desserts.  The rest of the top five stolen recipes are for side dishes . . . breads or rolls . . . sauces or jams . . . and soup.center_img I know that making fun of your grandma’s cooking is grounds for a FIGHT . . . but it’s my duty to pass this along.last_img read more
