I had several times, especially in 2013 and 2014, when I had the problem with the Treasury. It was very difficult for me and my family.”People really don’t know about what happens at that moment, they don’t listen, they think and talk. I was the first one and that’s why it was all so hard. Since they got angry and showed that they were going for everything with me, showing that they were going for all the players, it was diluted. “The best of all is that my children were small and did not know anything, but we had a hard time.

Saliba reveals reason he chose Arsenal over Spurs

first_imgNew Arsenal defender William Saliba has revealed that playing for “the biggest club in England” led to him choosing the Gunners over local rivals Tottenham.The 18-year-old completed a £27 million ($34m) move to the north London outfit on Thursday, becoming their second signing of the day following the season-long loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos .The defender was spoilt for choice when it came to deciding where his future lay this summer, with Arsenal’s north London rivals Spurs also interested in securing his services.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? And Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, the teenager insisted he only had one club in mind, adding: “Since I was little, I’ve been watching Arsenal play in the Champions League and so on.“There are a lot of French players who have come through here, so that really helped me to make my mind up.”Saliba also revealed that current Gunners midfielder Matteo Guendouzi had his say in the move, saying: “I spoke to Matteo [Guendouzi], I even bumped into him at a funfair in Paris.“That’s where I told him that Arsenal wanted to sign me! He gently advised me to come here and explained what it was like.“It’s a massive pleasure to sign for a really, really big English club. This is the biggest club in England for me, so it was an easy decision.“I didn’t think twice about signing here, so I’m really happy.“You have to keep working when you hear that a club is interested in signing you. You have to keep working; that’s what I’m doing and I’m proud to be signing here.”The France Under-20 international made 16 Ligue 1 appearances for Saint-Etienne last season, and will be returning to the club on a season-long loan as part of the deal before joining up with the Arsenal squad ahead of the 2020-21 season.When asked why this was the right choice for the youngster, Saliba answered: “Well, it was important first of all because I wanted to prove myself for another year at Saint-Etienne, before I come to try and establish myself here at Arsenal.“This is a big club, and when you come here, you need to be ready.“I’m going to try and have a great season with the club that developed me in order to be ready for Arsenal.”last_img read more

ESPN Names Team Helped The Most By Ohio State’s Loss

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Ohio State’s loss to Purdue on Saturday night has shaken up the College Football Playoff picture, as the Buckeyes have fallen out of everyone’s top four, and one team in particular appears to have benefited the most.That team: Oklahoma.The one-loss Sooners were on the outside looking in when it comes to the College Football Playoff, with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Notre Dame all having much better paths, but that has now changed.ESPN believes Oklahoma is the team that has benefited the most from an Ohio State loss. It’s now possible to envision a one-loss Sooners team making it into the College Football Playoff over a Big Ten champion.From ESPN.com:When Purdue upended No. 2 Ohio State 49-20 on Saturday night, it opened the door for another great debate on Selection Day, as the Big Ten is now guaranteed to have a conference champion with at least one loss — and so are the Big 12 and Pac-12. Instead of the luxury of separation that comes with being undefeated, Ohio State or Michigan needs to finish as a one-loss Big Ten champ — and even that might not be enough for the Buckeyes if Oklahoma can run the table and wow the selection committee in the Big 12 title game.There’s still a long way to go, though. If Ohio State can win out and put together some impressive wins over Michigan State, Michigan and the Big Ten West Division champion, a College Football Playoff berth is still probable.You can view ESPN’s full writeup here.last_img read more

ESPN On ‘Gap’ Between Alabama, Clemson

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)Alabama football is the clear No. 1 in college football right now. Internet sportsbook BetOnline.ag recently released odds for Alabama against many of the top teams in the country.Clemson was the closest match-up, with a line of +8.5 on a neutral site. Still, for a No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle, that is a giant spread.We may be underestimating the Tigers a bit though.Clemson’s defense is among the best in the country, and could put serious pressure on banged up Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He had to leave Saturday’s game against Mississippi State, which also features a stout defensive front.Trevor Lawrence is also just a true freshman, and is improving week over week. ESPN‘s Heather Dinich writes that the gap between Alabama football and Clemson may not be as wide as many think.From her College Football Playoff column published this morning:While there’s no disputing Alabama’s top spot, the gap between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers might not be as wide as national perception might suggest. On paper, top-ranked Alabama and second-ranked Clemson are almost twins, with the Tide having a slight edge.Alabama is No. 1 in ESPN’s Football Power Index and No. 1 in strength of record, while Clemson is No. 2 in both categories, but not by much. The Tide is just 1.6 points ahead of Clemson in FPI, which isn’t a very big gap considering Clemson is a robust 4.7 points ahead of No. 3 Georgia. Strength of record also reveals a slim margin. The average top-25 team would have a 2.8 percent chance to go 10-0 against Alabama’s schedule and just a 3.4 percent chance to go undefeated against Clemson’s lineup.Some have argued that Oklahoma’s explosive offense might give Alabama the most trouble, but a healthy Tua and company could drop 70 on that defense. Clemson’s probably the most balanced team this side of the Crimson Tide, and on the right day, could give them a run.[ESPN]last_img read more

He improved on that record in 2018, guiding the team to its first division and conference titles in the process.Clark beat out Alabama’s Nick Saban, Army’s Jeff Monken, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney, Fresno State’s Jeff Tedford, Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly, Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley and UCF’s Josh Heupel for the honor.The Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award is one of two major end-of-season accolades for head coaches, along with the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award.UAB coach Bill Clark will be named the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year: https://t.co/JSsjjWkYiH— John Talty (@JTalty) December 11, 2018Clark and the Blazers will wrap up their season in the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl next Tuesday, December 2018.

Harbhajan Singh bats for Rishabh Pant’s inclusion in India ODI squad

first_img India Today Web Desk SydneyJanuary 12, 2019UPDATED: January 12, 2019 23:52 IST Rishabh Pant had a successful Test tour of Australia (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHarbhajan Singh backs MS Dhoni to regain his form in the ongoing ODI series in AustraliaDhoni made a slow 51 from 96 balls in India’s 34-run defeat to Australia in the first ODI”Pant’s inclusion will strengthen India’s batting line-up,” Harbhajan saidIndia vs Australia: Brief Scores – Australia (288/5) beat India (254/9) by 34 runs. Virat Kohli said MS Dhoni ‘s dismissal was the turning point in India’s 34-run loss to Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday. Chasing 289, India managed only 254 for 9. (Full Scorecard)Harbhajan Singh has batted for wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant inclusion in the Indian ODI team and has also backed MS Dhoni to regain his form. MS Dhoni made a slow 51 from 96 balls in India’s 34-run defeat to Australia in the first ODI, sparking debate about his current form.Chasing 289 for a win, India were at one stage reduced to 4 for 3 before Rohit, who scored his 22nd ODI hundred, and Dhoni put on a 137-run partnership for the fourth wicket.Dhoni was unlucky as the ball that trapped him in front had pitched outside the line of the leg stump but the wicketkeeper-batsman consumed too many deliveries during his stay at the crease.”After you lose three early wickets, the middle order’s first motive is to revive the innings. Dhoni did well in that aspect but when we thought he would accelerate he lost his wicket. Rohit Sharma was under tremendous pressure after that,” Harbhajan told Sports Tak.”Rohit needed support from the other end and Dhoni’s presence at the crease would have made the difference.”Harbhajan said the day Dhoni finds his mojo back all the issues relating to India’s middle-order will be sorted.”India have potential in the middle order. We can’t say Rayudu and Dhoni don’t have potential. Dhoni has won many matches for India in the past. Yes, he has struggled in the recent past and I feel he must get back to form. The way he batted in the IPL 2018 was brilliant. He needs to get that form back and the day he does that, I don’t think we will need to worry a lot about the middle order. He needs to shift his gear and the day he does that the middle order issues will be sorted,” he said.advertisementHarbhajan further praised Rishabh Pant and said India must include the power-hitter in the side.”Rishabh Pant has that X-factor in him, which Adam Gilchrist had. He has the potential to hit six sixes…I am not talking about six sixes in an over but if he plays 30 balls he has the ability to hit at least six sixes, which can be game-changing.”I think Rishabh Pant is a must in the Indian team because if we lose three early wickets, we need to have a power-hitter lower down the order. I think his inclusion will not only strengthen India’s batting line-up but also fix the middle-order issues,” he said.The second ODI between India and Australia will be played at Adelaide while the third and final match of the series will be played in Melbourne.Also Read | Did MS Dhoni’s slow half-century cost India the Sydney ODI vs Australia?

Warner, who returned to the IPL after the ball-tampering scandal, had smashed a 53-ball 85 against Kolkata Knight Riders before a hurricane 69 against Rajasthan Royals on Friday. | SRH vs RCB: Live score |There are now three centurions in the 2019 IPL. Sanju Samson had hit a hundred against SRH on Friday before Jonny Bairstow hit his maiden hundred also against RCB on Sunday. This is only the second time that two batsmen from the same team have scored hundreds in the same match in IPL historyWarner had three hundreds before this game and is now joint second with Virat Kohli and Shane Watson in the list of most IPL centuries.CENTURY WARNEROh what a player! Magnificent innings from @davidwarner31 as he brings up his 4th #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/sGiZ2Wez4RIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 31, 2019Bairstow became only the third Englishman to score an IPL hundred.AB de Villiers of Royal Challengers Bangalore has 3 hundreds in the IPL while Brendon McCullum, Virender Sehwag, Murali Vijay, Adam Gilchrist, Sanju Samson and Hashim Amla have 2 hundreds each in the IPL.Chris Gayle leads the pack of centurions with 6 hundreds in the IPL.David Warner was in murderous mood when he walked out to bat in his first game in Hyderabad since 2017. He started attacking from the word go and by the time SRH reached 54 for no loss in 5 overs, Warner had raced away to 45 not out.advertisement”I think the 12 months have done me well – I think I am refreshed. A fantastic partnership – a fantastic inning by Jonny (Bairstow). Half the job is done,” Warner said after remaining unbeaten on 100.Fantastic to bat with Warner: BairstowSpeaking after the stunning knock, Bairstow said he enjoyed batting with David Warner. It’s good to see an Australian and an Englishman enjoying each other’s company in an Ashes year.It was great to bat here – between the wickets it’s one of the bigger pitches in India so getting the gaps and constantly rotating the strike is tough – fantastic pitch out there. I’m not sure I’m superhuman, I’m absolutely cooked, but as long as you’re getting your head through the ball it’s alright – only if you fall over, you’ll miscue it,” Bairstow said.”It was fantastic to bat in the middle with Warner – and it’s fantastic he’s got the Orange cap. The crowd is amazing, the fans are fanatical, and we are fortunate to have them. I’d like to think we have enough for Kohli and AB, and we know the kind of class they have in their batting line-up. We generally bowl well here. I’m sure if they get going and chase it down, it’ll be an entertaining chase,” he addWarner and Steve Smith were banned for a year over their role in the ball-tampering scandal while Cameron Bancroft was banished for 9 months after he had rubbed sandpaper on the ball. Steve Smith is yet to fire in the IPL this year but Warner has been in breathtaking form and has played some audacious shots this summer. He is also the first batsman in the 2019 IPL to go past 200 runs.David Warner stormed away to a hundred and is now the owner of the Orange Cap which Andre Russell owned only for a few hours after his sensational knock for KKR against Delhi Capitals at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Saturday.Also Read | IPL 2019, SRH vs RCB: Jonny Bairstow hits maiden IPL hundredAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The leaked price of the Galaxy A2 Core should put the device in a competitive position to take on the Redmi Go and Nokia 1 in India.Unsurprisingly, the specs are in line with past reports that includes a 5-inch qHD (540×960) display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and a glossy plastic rear panel. As per the spec sheet, the Galaxy A2 Core will sport a 5-inch qHD (540×960) display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and a glossy plastic rear panel. It will be powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The handset should support storage expandability via a microSD card.Notably, the Galaxy A2 Core will ship with Android Pie (Go edition) rather than Android Oreo (Go edition) as previously rumoured. This means you can expect some software optimisation improvements so that the device smoothly runs Go-based apps like Google Go, Maps Go, YouTube Go and Gmail Go, among others. Samsung will likely offer its own set of Samsung apps optimised for the Android Go device.advertisementSamsung’s entry level smartphone offers a 5MP f/1.9 rear camera and a 5MP f/2.2 front-facing camera. The phone houses a 2,600mAh battery and measures 141.5×70.9×9.1mm. Samsung will launch the Galaxy A2 Core in Red, Dark Grey and Blue colours as per the spec sheet. There is no word yet on when Samsung will announce the Galaxy A2 Core in India, but we expect it to happen soon.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy A70 India launch expected soon as page goes live on official websiteGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

However, he isn’t very sure of himself for the upcoming match between Australia and India.advertisement Press Trust of India LondonJune 8, 2019UPDATED: June 8, 2019 14:03 IST Nathan Coulter-Nile isn’t sure of himself for the Australia vs India match (Photo: Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSAustralia managed to defeat West Indies in their second World Cup 2019 encounterCoulter-Nile’s 92 was the highest by a No.8 in a World Cup matchHe scored 58 runs more than his previous best ODI scoreAustralia’s fast bowling all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile says he is not sure of his place for the big-ticket World Cup encounter against India despite a match-winning 92 against West Indies.His 92 off just 60 balls proved vital in Australia’s 15-run victory, but the 31-year-old believes his expensive outing with the ball in Bristol may not help his cause.Asked if he felt his spot was secure, Coulter-Nile said: “No. I took none for 70.”We’ve got two world-class (fast) bowlers (on the sidelines). I’m not in the team to make runs, hopefully the top order does that, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I got dropped for the next game,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.”I’m in the team to take wickets and I’ve had two wicketless games, so we’ll see how we go.”Coulter-Nile’s 92 at Trent Bridge was the highest score by a No. 8 in a World Cup, 58 runs more than his previous best ODI score.Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are Australia’s lead pacers, while coach Justin Langer has indicated that Nathan Lyon has been considered as a second spinner alongside Adam Zampa.Back-up pacers Jason Behrendorff and Kane Richardson could also come into contention for the India game at The Oval.Coulter-Nile insists he is not bothered by the competition for spots.”I actually like it,” he said.”I think it’s good to have competition and it wouldn’t be good if we had no one pushing you trying to get better, so I love it.”Coulter-Nile combined with Steve Smith (73) for a counter-attacking stand of 102 off just 89 balls power Australia to 288 against the Windies.”To have a guy play the innings of his life was something I’m sure you guys enjoyed watching,” said vice-captain Alex Carey, who earlier scored 45 off 55 deliveries.advertisementAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Pressure on England as Bangladesh seeks another CWC upsetAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Unfazed by MS Dhoni gloves row, India focussed on Australia matchAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Mile End’s guide to New York & Montreal

first_img The Burger Show’s Alvin Cailan Shares His Burger-Making Secrets Feasting is our column dedicated to cooking, grilling, eating and discovering what’s on the menu across America and the world.We love delicious smoked meat here at The Manual, and we think you guys can agree with us. There are many places that do it well, but we can’t deny our love for the traditional Jewish delicatessen, especially in cities that are known for them like New York and Montreal. Which is why we’re so in love with Mile End, a Jewish deli that’s committed to breathing new life into old-world traditions with locations in both Manhattan and Brooklyn.From smoked meats and fish to pickled goods and freshly baked breads, Mile End has been feeding hungry New Yorker’s the Jewish comfort foods of owner Noah Bernamoff’s Montreal youth since 2010. Because these guys have such great taste, we wanted to know some of their other favorite spots when they’re not getting down on matzo ball soup and smoked meat poutine. So Noah and co-owner Joel Tietolman gave us the inside scoop on their picks for date night, noodles, great cocktails and more in both NYC and Montreal. Check out their recommendations before your next visit to these two great cities.NOAHBest place for date nightMontreal: Vin PapillonSmall plates and natural wines from Dave, Fred and Vanya of Joe Beef. Enough said.New York: LucaliBest pizza in NYC, candle lit room, BYOB (Jay-Z and Beyonce also do date night here)Best place to take the parents when they’re in townMontreal: MilosClassic, straightforward, high quality seafood, very expensiveNew York: Russ & Daughters CafeA fresh take on familiar Jewish appetizing. Food for the soulBest place for a fancy cocktailMontreal: Nora GraySexy room, delicious food and probably the best bartenders in the cityNew York: Grand ArmyBecause of Damon Boelte, space cowboy and bartenderBest outdoor diningMontreal: Liverpool HouseAmazing food served among raised beds filled with vegetablesNew York: Frankies 457Super chill and comfortable, tucked away under the F trainBest place to see a showMontreal: La Sala RossaPerfect acoustics for an old marxist meeting hallNew York: Bowery BallroomSuper professional production yet a small and intimate venueBest bagelsMontreal: St-Viateur BagelOne of the oldest and still the tastiestNew York: Black SeedBecause it’s the best, no further explanation neededBest noodlesMontreal: VIPIt’s dirty and smells like old oil, just like a noodle shop should.New York: Biang!Hand-pulled and done up real nice even though it’s in FlushingBest coffee shopMontreal: Cafe MyriadeFirst cafe in Montreal to really care about coffee as a premium beverageNew York: Stumptown on West 8thIt’s beautiful and you can order a pour-over of nearly every coffee that Stumptown roasts.Best doughnutsMontreal: Saint DonutBecause it’s my old roommate’s company and she makes whiskey donuts.New York: DoughSo light, so fluffyRelated: Celebrate National Doughnut Day with America’s BestBest butcher shopMontreal: Boucherie LawrenceAll grass-fed, always localNew York: The Meat HookBecause Brent and Ben are the best dudes and always know how to have fun.Best burgerMontreal: Moishes SteakhouseCharred on the steak grill, served plainNew York: Prime MeatsBlend of funky dry-aged trim, served a proper medium-rareJOELBest place for date nightMontreal: Garde MangerIt’s the right blend of ambiance and great food where you don’t necessarily have to leave feeling stuffed like some of Montreal’s other notable dining establishments. It’s in magical old Montreal, so a romantic walk along the old port or the cobblestone streets is in your future after dinner.New York: LucaliAmazing Neapolitan style pizza usually made by the owner Mark himself in an insanely hot wood burning oven. They only serve pizza and calzone with a few daily fresh toppings. The interior is so charming, and you might be dinning next to Jay-Z & Beyoncé who also like this spot for dates! It’s BYOB, which keeps the date cheap in case the pizza is better than the date. I had my first date here with my fiancé – trust the power of a great pizza pie and some Lambrusco.Best place to take the parents when they’re in townMontreal: Schwartz’s DelicatessenNothing is more Montreal than a smoked meat sandwich, and Schwartz’s has barely changed in 75+ years, so you can’t beat the vibe. Really, just take anyone here!New York: CarboneSimply put, they aim for a certain kind of American-Italian dining experience, and there could not be a higher level of this example. Familiar and comfortable dishes prepared to the highest standard and a service level that is second to none.Best bagelsMontreal: St-Viateur BagelsGet it hot (24 hours) and rip and dip into Liberté scallion cream cheese. Don’t just try sesame, the poppy are outstanding as well.New York: Black Seed / Smith Street Bagels / Bagel HoleI’m biased but also not the only one who thinks the best bagels in NYC these days are made by our team at Black Seed Bagels. I’m even starting to like them better than the ones I grew up with from Montreal, and that’s saying a lot. For a pure NYC bagel shop, I really like my local spot in Cobble Hill, Smith Street Bagels, as well as Bagel Hole in Park Slope.Best coffee shopMontreal: Café OlympicoLocated in the heart of the Mile End area, this coffee shop was originally a hang out for older Portuguese gentleman in the area, but now you can find it filled with hipsters. Also, the people watching is amazing if you can snag a seat outside.New York: Stumptown on West 8thAmazing coffee in a completely beautiful interior. If you are a coffee geek, check out the pour over/tasting room in the back.Best burgerMontreal: Mister SteerThey make amazing, almost spherical juicy little burgers with steer meat and fresh cut susie q fries (curly fries). Get the twins – one burger topped with cheese and a second topped with bacon.New York: Prime MeatsThe burger is huge on flavor and size, and I think I enjoy it more every time I have one.  Those Franks (the owners) might have made a name for their Italian food next door at Frankies, but their burger is outstanding.To learn more about Mile End and check out their menu, visit mileenddeli.com.
