Chelsea youngsters comfortably beaten by strong Arsenal side

first_imgEmbed from Getty Images Chelsea’s Under-23s were beaten 4-1 by an Arsenal development side boasting plenty of first-team experience.In an entertaining game at London Colney, the Blues’ youngsters were no match for the Gunners, who included the likes of Danny Welbeck, Carl Jenkinson, Rob Holding, Emiliano Martinez and promising midfielders Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Jeff Reine-Adelaide.Holding – who played for Arsenal in Monday night’s FA Cup tie at Sutton – gave the home side the lead midway through the first half, nodding in from close range after a clever corner routine involving Maitland-Niles and Ben Sheaf.AdChoices广告The former Bolton centre-back then created the second, striding forward into Chelsea territory and feeding Donyell Malen, who took a touch before firing in a shot under the body of Blues keeper Jared Thompson.Malen could have had another goal when he was given too much space in the box but his side-footed effort was cleared off the line by Dujon Sterling.Chelsea had been restricted to half-chances in the first 45 minutes but were immediately on the front foot after the break, with Todd Kane mistiming a volley across goal and Mason Mount forcing a good save from Martinez.However, Reiss Nelson was more clinical at the other end, making it 3-0 when he got on the end of Malen’s low cross from the right.Chelsea did pull a goal back as Charly Musonda showed good feet in the Arsenal half before producing a save from Martinez, with Ike Ugbo netting the rebound.But the influential Malen continued to trouble the Blues defence and when he was hauled down in the box by Ruben Sammut, Welbeck converted the penalty.  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Brits Rush to Take out This £200k Life Insurance Policy from Just £10pm* x No Senior in Local Area Should Go Without This £49 Smartwatch x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Remember Her?

‘At last you’re joining a proper football club’ – Club CEO…

first_imgIn case you missed it, and there’s every chance you did given it’s underwhelming nature, Morgan Schneiderlin completed a move to Nice from Everton today. In the video they have various people associated to the club on a conference call, introducing everyone individually before getting to the newest member, Schneiderlin.CEO Bob Ratcliffe takes his time to introduce their signing from Everton, announcing it is ‘fantastic to have you on board’, labelling him a ‘most distinguished footballer’ before inexplicably deciding to take a swipe at his former clubs by claiming ‘at last you’re joining a proper football club’.Now, quite why Ratcliffe makes that comment is anyone’s guess, but it’s an apparent swipe at Everton and Manchester United, where Schneiderlin did not exactly enjoy the best of spells.Southampton are also in the list of former clubs as well, of course, but he rather enjoyed his time there, so it seems unlikely Ratcliffe is targeting them too.Perhaps it’s all just playful banter from the Nice supremo, although he’d be wise to check his history and the respective trophy hauls of the three clubs before deeming who is a ‘proper club’.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Maiga set to join West Ham

first_imgWest Ham have told ESPN that they expect to sign Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga for €7 million early next week.Maiga, 24, is the latest in a succession of strikers linked with West Ham, with the club even looking at a loan for Andy Carroll, but it now appears that they have set their sights firmly on the Mali forward.The Sochaux striker came close to joining Newcastle last December before a reported failed medical saw the Magpies turn their attention to Papiss Demba Cisse, while Stoke and Reading have been on his trail in recent times.A Hammers source told ESPN: “The club have offered €7 million, and it looks like being accepted.”Maiga, with 24 league goals in his past two seasons with Sochaux since joining from Le Mans, plans to travel to East London next week to have a medical and conclude personal terms.last_img read more

Jimmy Kimmel says it’s too soon to tell how he’ll address harassment issue at the Oscars

first_imgABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — On Sunday night, Seth Meyers strongly addressed Hollywood’s sexual harassment issue during his Golden Globes monologue, but can we expect more of the same at the Oscars in March? Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Press Association tour in Pasadena, California, on Monday, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel said it’s too soon to tell.“The problem is, it’s two months from now, it’s almost like getting into a hot tub or something,” Kimmel explained. “You can’t really know what the temperature is until you get there.”But Kimmel did admit it was very important for him to observe how Meyers handled the topic.“I was like, ‘I have to see what Seth says and how it is received,’” Kimmel said. “And I do thank him for being that litmus test.”Reporters also asked Kimmel if he’s hoping for another Moonlight/La La Land-style mix-up this year.“Well, if it happens again, literally everyone that works at ABC should be fired, right?” he replied, as the reporters laughed. “Because it happens one time, that’s I think understandable.  But if it happens a second time, no one is competent enough to be running a television show or network.”For the record, it was a Price Waterhouse accountant who was behind the mix-up last year, not an ABC employee.Kimmel weighed in on the #OprahforPresident calls that followed Oprah’s roof-raising speech at the Globes.“Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, y’know, I’m on the bus with Oprah, traveling the country, encouraging people to sign up and vote,” he said.Then, Jimmy joked, “We would have to call her President Winfrey…you realize that. We would really have to start using the word ‘Winfrey’ a lot…I don’t know if we’re prepared for that as a country.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Florida school shooting ‘hero’ JROTC cadet should receive military burial: Classmates

first_imgMark Wilson/Getty Images(PARKLAND, Fla.) — He saved lives in uniform and, his friends say, didn’t flinch in the face of an alleged mass shooter in a Parkland, Fla., high school last week.Now, friends of 15-year-old Peter Wang are trying to posthumously honor the “hero” by petitioning for a military burial.Were it not for the heroics displayed by Peter, his friends are certain the death toll on Wednesday would have been higher.Nikolas Cruz, 19, allegedly gunned down innocent and unarmed students and teachers with a semiautomatic rifle. He’s been charged with 17 counts of murder.When the mass shooter was marching straight for Peter’s classroom, according to one of his close friends who were there, Wang stood tall in full Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) regalia and sacrificed his life as he ushered other students and teachers to safety.“He was pointing the door open for other people to escape and then he was struck by the bullets,” classmate and friend Aiden Ortiz told ABC station WPLG-TV.“I want people to know he died a hero,” the teen added. “He died saving many people.”Just days after the shooting, Aiden says he’s still struggling with losing his friends.“Every time I sleep I just keep thinking of bodies,” he said. “I’m thinking of who’s there and who’s not there anymore.”Another classmate, Rachel Kuperman, remembered the last time she saw Peter. It was the day before the shooting, and she was trying to figure out what to do after realizing she forgot her lunch.True to form, Peter came to the rescue.“He went to the vending machine with me and he bought me Sprite and candy and snacks,” she said in an interview with WPLG-TV, before covering her face with her hands and breaking down in tears. “He put others before himself.”Aiden and Rachel have pushed to formally revere Peter by spearheading a petition on the White House website “We the People.” The goal is to have the federal government bury Peter with military honors.“His selfless actions have led to the survival of dozens in the area,” the petition, started Friday, reads. “Wang died a hero, and deserves to be treated as such, and deserves a full honors military burial.”By Sunday evening the petition garnered 17,000 signatures. It needs a requisite total of 100,000 signatures within 30 days to receive a White House response.Peter’s funeral and burial are scheduled to take place on Tuesday morning in Coral Springs, Florida.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
