first_imgLiverpool have agreed to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson for a world record fee of £66m, reports the Liverpool EchoThe Brazil international emerged as one of the most promising young goalkeepers in European football after replacing the Juventus-bound Wojciech Szczesny as Roma’s new number one last season.After many standout performances in both the Serie A and the Champions League, Alisson had caught the interest of many European giants for a move this summer with Real Madrid leading the way.But with the La Liga side set to now sign Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea this summer, Liverpool look set to sign Alisson themselves.This new development comes, despite Roma president James Pallotta having stated back in April that they had no interest in selling.“We have no intention of selling him,” said the 60-year-old.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I mean zero at all. I’m sure some people will probably come in with some bids, but I don’t have any interest in selling him, he’s a great goalkeeper.”But it appears that Liverpool have got their man.The Reds have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old in the past 12 months and appear to have increased their efforts following Loris Karius’ blunders in last season’s Champions League final.Earlier this week in fact, Liverpool had a £60m bid rejected by Roma but they appear to have made a breakthrough in talks with the club now prepared to make Alisson the expensive goalkeeper of all-time.With a fee now having been agreed on, Liverpool can now officially approach Alisson and begin discussing personal terms,While the signing of the Brazilian goalkeeper will increase Liverpool’s spending this summer to over £150m, Jurgen Klopp has decided that it is a necessary addition to his squad as they look to mount a challenge for the Premier League title in the new season.last_img read more

first_imgLet’s talk about the most important matches that Neymar is set to miss with PSG during the announced 10 weeks he will recover from his injury.Now that we know for certain how much time Neymar is going to miss without playing a single match for PSG, those ten weeks carry several matches that the Brazilian player will certainly miss and there are many details to break down about the huge mistake the club is making.The French giants have reached the decision of letting the doctors take a “conservative” approach to his recovery, which means that they decided the player wouldn’t go through another surgery because they don’t want him to be completely out for the rest of the season at the club.The problem with this choice is that the injury is on the very same metatarsal that Neymar received surgery last season, the player was already having second thoughts about the recovery process from the first intervention and he even decided to change the stud patterns on his football boots from hard ground to artificial ground out of fear of twisting his ankle during practice.Neymar is clearly going through a difficult process and he is feeling pressured for not delivering the expected results at PSG, which is why he permitted the club to make this decision of not having surgery for him.Official: Neymar out for up to 10 weeks with a metatarsal injury. The Paris forward will miss both round of 16 ties against Manchester United. #UCL pic.twitter.com/VDYPZBx1EL— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) January 30, 2019The Brazil medical staff does not agree on this decision of Neymar not going under the knife again, they feel that the player could risk his right foot to an even greater extent if he doesn’t get this problem completely fixed once and for all.But what the Brazil medical staff thinks has very little influence on what happens to Neymar, because they are not the ones who pay for the player’s wage as Paris Saint-Germain does.The National Team manager’s words from last week about fearing that Neymar could miss the Copa America take a whole different context now that we know the club made this decision, he really is scared that the player can suffer an even greater injury because he will be risking himself after coming back from that “conservative” treatment period that PSG described on their press release this Wednesday.This pressure that the club is putting on the player, only adds up to the pressure that Neymar is putting on himself because he still hasn’t made the decision to play a different style of football and he may never want to reduce the risks he takes in doing so because he feels that he owes it to the fans.We’ve discussed that the player needs to take a lesson from the Ronaldo Nazario rule book, and start playing un a more practical manner.PSG confirm Neymar’s injury will keep him out for 10 weeks.He will miss both UCL games against Manchester United and the quarter-finals, if PSG go through. pic.twitter.com/ugM2KBaLWnOpinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) January 30, 2019The key matches Neymar will miss for PSGOut of the 10 weeks that Neymar is set to miss for PSG, there will be a total of 12 matches in all competitions that the player won’t be available for manager Thomas Tuchel.But since the club has already practically secured another Ligue 1 trophy, there are at least 7 matches that Neymar can easily miss without a problem and nobody will complain about them.However, five of those matches are considered crucial or high risked and the Brazilian forward is set to miss all of them. We start with this weekend’s Ligue 1 match at Olympique Lyonnais, which is Paris Saint-Germain’s most complicated rival in the French competition.Just three days later, the French giants will have to play a crucial Coupe de France match against Villefranche. Six days later we have the first of two “finals” against Manchester United in the Champions League, a match that will sorely miss Neymar and will take place at Old Trafford.After nearly a full month of unimportant Ligue 1 matches, we have the Red Devils’ visiting Parc des Princes on March 6 and Olympique Marseille’s visit eleven days later for Ligue 1 before Neymar allegedly makes his expected return.But we stand by our claim, he should’ve gone under the knife.Neymar has been ruled out of action for 10 weeks 🤕He is set to miss the following games:Lyon (A)Villefranche (A)Bordeaux (H)Man Utd (A)St-Etienne (A)Montpellier (H)Nimes (H)Caen (A)Man Utd (H)Nantes (A)Dijon (A)Marseille (H)Toulouse (A)Strasbourg (H) pic.twitter.com/UkmU4xz012— Goal (@goal) January 30, 2019Why do you think PSG decided to not let Neymar get another surgery when he clearly fractured his right foot again?

Phillip Paulwell.He was joined by representatives of BMR Jamaica Wind Limited, the United States Embassy and the Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPSCo). The project will generate electricity using 11 Vesta Model V-112 wind turbines, and power will be transmitted to the national grid via a 69kV transmission line running 18 kilometres from the wind farm to the JPSCo’s 138/69kV Spur Tree substation in Manchester.Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony, Mr. Paulwell said the project forms part of the Government’s push to lower the cost of electricity for Jamaicans. “The price of electricity must come down. I have a view as to where it must get for Jamaica to become first world, and for us to be highly competitive. It won’t happen in three years, it probably won’t happen in five years, but my view is that we have to have a minimum of about US18 cents per kilowatt-hour for us to achieve that target,” he emphasised.The Minister added that Jamaica’s oil import bill remains too high and investments in renewable energy are always welcome.Highlighting the value of the BMR Wind project, Mr. Paulwell pointed out that there are several new projects on the horizon from which the country will benefit significantly.“We have some baseload projects that are going to happen…a 190-megawatt LNG project which involves JPSCo, and I hear that the price should not exceed US12.89 cents per kilowatt-hour. I am very pleased, and as Minister, I am going to sign that licence the day it comes on my desk,” the Minister said. Mr. Paulwell noted that the new venture at Munro and two others will bring total investments in the energy sector to more than $20 billion.“Last week, I was nearby breaking ground for WIGTON-3 (in Manchester) and that will be an investment of $5 billion. In other couple of weeks, I go to Clarendon where another American company will be breaking ground for a 20 MW solar facility costing $7 billion. Today’s investment by BMR tops them all, totalling just over $10 billion. So, over the next couple of months, we will be investing over $20 billion in energy projects,” the Minister said.“This will record growth in our economy and very importantly for us, the creation of just under 200 jobs,” Mr. Paulwell added.Praising BMR for its decision to invest in Jamaica, Mr. Paulwell said it represents a display of tremendous partnership, especially in the present economic climate.BMR has also signed a 20-year agreement to sell power generated at theSt. Elizabeth wind farm to the JPSCo.The wind turbines are being installed on 75 acres of land which have been leased from the National Land Agency (NLA) in the communities of Hermitage, Torrington Castle and Chelsea.

This is a massive buy out, and it was approved just days ago and already Columbus International Inc, with its subsidiary, Columbus Networks has closed its operations in headquarter Barbados. The report is grabbing international headlines and CEO of C&W, Phil Bentley, who visited the Turks and Caicos last year explained in a media statement that: “Most of the markets we operate in have approved our integration plans and therefore today we can start to release some of the $1.5bn investment monies we have set aside to provide our customers with an unrivalled telecommunications experience, improving coverage, reliability, products and speeds, and providing a welcome boost to both jobs and the economy in the countries in which we operate.” While Marketwired is reporting that the value of the acquisition is over $3 billion dollars, Cable and Wireless Plc explains it has spent $1.85 billion dollars on the deal. They call it ‘transformational’. Bentley noted that as part of the integration process, the Company “is undertaking a full review of all the brands we currently operate under, including the Flow and LIME….” In a statement, Columbus explains: Similarly, the combination of the two businesses supports CWC’s new strategy and its four primary areas of focus: Drive Mobile Leadership; Accelerate Fixed-Mobile Convergence; Reinforce TV Offer; and Grow Business to Business and Business to Government sectors.last_img read more
