first_imgTimothy Fosu-Mensah is one the verge of a move to Hertha Berlin, according to claims coming from Germany on Saturday evening. Sky Deutschland journalist Sven Tollner sent out a tweet saying that, according to their own information, the Manchester United player is set to move to Hertha Berlin on loan.There’s no information regarding the period of the 20 year old’s loan or anything about a loan fee or conditions that Fosu-Mensah players.It’s likely Manchester United have tried to get assurances over game time, in much the same way they did with Joel Pereira last week.Sporting were keen on loaning the goalkeeper but wouldn’t give guarantees over game time and that led the Premier League club to look elsewhere.Jose Mourinho got involved personally and Pereira ended up signing for the manager’s home town club Vitoria Setubal.Sky Deutschland believe Fosu-Mensah will give Hertha Berlin flexible options in Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

first_imgSevastova, the owner of the 43rd position in the world ranking, gave up 6-7 (2: 7), 3-6 to Svitolina, who was in the fifth place.The Ukrainian won the first game in the “dry”. In the second game, Sevastova played the first break ball by going to the net, but in the second game they sent the ball to the net – 0-2.The opponent made better use of the speed of the lawn, and the Latvian tennis player was often unable to catch the ball, the result growing rapidly in favor of Svitolina.Sevastova won the fourth game by hitting the ball in the box. The nature of the fight changed as the Latvian tennis player played more and more successfully, and after 1-4 he managed to win three games in a row, but then he had the opportunity to serve a set when the result was 6-5 in favor of Sevastova.This game did not give in to the Latvian, ending in a double mistake, and the winner of the set was determined in Taiwan. Sevastova scored the first point when the Ukrainian sent the ball into the net, but the rest of the Taiwan passed the Switolina sign. The Ukrainian scored four set balls, realizing the first of them with a light blow behind the net – 7-6 (7: 2).In the first game of the second set, Sevastova had two game balls serving, but she lost four games in a row and thus the whole game.The equalization in the set was achieved in the sixth game, when the Latvian tennis player scored three break balls in a row, using the third – 3-3.It was Sevastova’s last game won in the game, losing three games in a row and the whole match with 6-7 (2: 7), 3-6.In the last game of the game, when Svitolina served, the Ukrainian achieved three match balls in a row, the Latvian tennis player won in four games in a row, but they remained the last points she won in this match.It has already been reported that in the first round of the Sevastov tournament, he defeated the German Julia Gerges 6-3, 4-3, whose rank is five places higher, with the opponent leaving in the second set due to an ankle injury.Czech Petra Kvitova and Dutch Kiki Bertens will meet in the second semi-final on Tuesday.The tournament in Berlin takes place at the stadium named after Count Staf on the grass courts.Sevastov’s official games have not taken place since the end of February. It is planned that in two weeks she will take part in the Latvian-Estonian national team match competition in Tallinn.The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) season will resume on August 3 in Palermo.Others are currently reading Series “Glee” actress Naja Rivera drowned, rescuing her son More than 1000 euros are removed from the bank account: the police call to beware of telephone fraudsters Megana Mārkla chooses a linen dress made in Lithuanialast_img read more

Photo/Randy RiksenCarpenter, an All-Stater for the Reeths-Puffer soccer team, recently played the lead role in the school production of the musical Newsies, despite having little background in theatre.Newsies was a 1992 Disney movie that was adapted into a hit Broadway production. It’s loosely based on the real-life 1899 newsboy strike in New York City.Carpenter loved the movie as a youngster, particularly the lead character Jack Kelly, so when he heard that the school was putting on the show, he decided to try out for the part.“Growing up we were Disney fanatics, and I was a Newsies fanatic,” said Carpenter, who was a junior this year. “I loved that movie as a kid, and I wanted to be just like Jack Kelly. He was just the coolest guy.“He could sing and dance, he had sweet hair, and he got the girl. He’s what every little boy dreams of becoming, that super cool guy. So when I heard a rumor that they might be doing the show, I figured this was my chance.”Also in the cast were Carpenter’s twin brothers, sophomores Ashton and Preston, who are also members of the R-P varsity soccer squad. The youngest actor was their little brother, 11-year-old London, who is a junior soccer player.Even Keith Knapp, a Reeths-Puffer teacher who recently retired as the varsity soccer coach, was involved. He had a small role, playing New York Gov. Teddy Roosevelt.Reeths-Puffer’s Jaxson Carpenter (center) performs during the school’s production of Newsies.The biggest and toughest role went to Jaxon, and he embraced it. As Coach Knapp put it, he’s never been a kid who’s afraid to tackle new challenges.Carpenter had some singing experience in high school choir, and a little acting experience in the Children’s Theater class he took in his sophomore year.But it was a very big jump from choir and the classroom to having the lead role in the school musical, which involved singing solo on stage.“I think everybody is at first,” Carpenter said, when asked if he was frightened to sing solo in front of an audience. “But once you do it, and the more you do it, the better you get.“My mom made us be involved in music since we were little, and I was in band in fifth grade through eighth grade. Then she made us join choir. I didn’t want to do it at the time, but I did it and embraced it, and it’s one of my favorite things now.”Luckily for Carpenter and the other cast members, the production was scheduled to hit the stage just before the COVID-19 crisis cancelled everything on the calendar.There was supposed to be one show on Thursday, March 12, one the next night, and two on Saturday March 14. Both Saturday performances were cancelled, but the show went on the first two nights, in front of limited audiences.While the audiences were much smaller than usual, everyone seemed to love the show, Carpenter said.Coach Knapp stands with Carpenter (10) and younger brothers, twins, Ashton and Preston the district title trophy.“It was incredible,” Carpenter said. “The shows were amazing. Even more amazing was the process of spending hours every day with the directors and my classmates, building relationships doing something we all loved to do. It was by far one of the best experiences of my life.”Carpenter was already accustomed to playing a lead role on the soccer field. That was particularly true last fall, when he led the Rockets in scoring and helped them win a Division 2 district championship.Carpenter’s soccer talent was obvious from the beginning of high school, and he was moved up to varsity immediately as a freshman.His scoring numbers were relatively modest in his first two seasons. He had 3 goals and 13 assists as a freshman, and 8 goals and 7 assists as a sophomore.Then last fall he exploded, totaling 23 goals and 12 assists and earning Division 2 All-State honors.“It was sweet,” Carpenter said about becoming an All-Stater. “I had wanted that since I knew it was a thing. It just all came together, and I got to score a lot and get a few assists.The Rockets’ Jaxon Carpenter.“My sophomore year was a little rough. We had a young team with only three seniors, and we were going up against teams with lots of juniors and seniors. This year we had basically the same team, but we were all a year older and better. I got bigger and faster, and I had teammates who just loved to set me up to score.”Carpenter has already found his way into the Reeths-Puffer soccer record book. He had the fifth highest goal-scoring season in R-P history last fall. He is tied for second in assists in a season (13 as a sophomore), and is currently fifth in career goals with 34.He has already set a school career assist record with 32, and he still has his senior season to go.“Even when he was in eighth grade, and we had drop-in workouts during the winter, he was standing out against guys who were four years older than him,” said Knapp, who is stepping aside after 24 years of coaching. “He was so technically skilled and such a driven competitor, we knew he would have a fantastic career.”Carpenter said he’s always dreamed of being a pro soccer player, and he has talked to a few college coaches about extending his career beyond high school.But now, after getting a taste of acting, he’s rethinking his plans.“I’m not sure what I want to do,” he said. “Now I’m looking at maybe pursuing a career in musical theater. I loved it that much.” (462) Thank you! This will help us improve your ad experience. We will try not to show you such ads again.

first_imgThere are tough losses and then there’s that rare defeat that forces you to reevaluate everything you thought you knew about a football team.The Ravens experienced the latter Sunday in falling to the Houston Texans in a 25-13 final with numbers that don’t do justice to how miserable the performance was. Baltimore has experienced bigger margins of defeat in the John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco era, but most haven’t come in a spot in which the Ravens had so much to lose.Sunday was easily the worst offensive performance of the season as the Ravens were held to an anemic 64 yards through the first three quarters. From Flacco and the running game to the offensive line and the wide receivers, no part of the performance was remotely acceptable, including a coaching staff that failed to account for the Texans’ pass rush throughout the day or to find answers to get the all-important running game on track.For the second straight year, the Ravens entered Week 16 in complete control of their path to the playoffs, needing two wins to guarantee a trip to the postseason. And just like last year’s home defeat to New England in the penultimate game of the regular season, the Ravens were dominated while watching that playoff power slip through their fingers.Losing big at home to the Patriots last season was bad enough, but at least it came against a team regarded as one of the NFL’s best. On Sunday, the Ravens fell on the road to a team sporting a .500 record and starting a fourth-string quarterback who was signed off another team’s practice squad earlier in the week.Of course, Sunday’s defeat had very little to do with Texans quarterback Case Keenum and everything to do with a Houston defense that overwhelmed Flacco and the offense. The Texans deserve plenty of credit and have the best defensive player on the planet in J.J. Watt, but the Ravens offense coming up so small with the stakes so high negates much of the progress made in Gary Kubiak’s first year as coordinator.It reeked of the ineptitude of last year.As much scrutiny as the Ravens defense has drawn over a secondary ravaged by injuries, Dean Pees’ unit played admirably in limiting the Texans to just one touchdown in seven trips inside the red zone. You could have almost stomached a defeat in which Texans receivers Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins kept running free and Keenum caught lightning in a bottle, but the Baltimore defense was acceptable on Sunday.The Ravens can still make the playoffs with a win over Cleveland next Sunday and either two losses by Cincinnati or a San Diego loss at Kansas City, but their loss on Sunday makes you wonder if they’ve lost the late-season mettle made famous in Harbaugh’s first five years at the helm. Maybe it’s because of certain talent deficiencies, something missing in their current DNA, or both, but the Ravens just didn’t lose games like Sunday’s in Harbaugh’s first five seasons.After 15 games and just two wins over teams currently holding a .500 record, the 9-6 Ravens just might not be all that good. Their biggest critics have repeatedly pointed out how they’ve benefited from playing the woeful NFC South as Baltimore holds a 5-6 record against the rest of the league. Beating bad teams is well and good, but you have to rise to the occasion to put yourself in position to do something special by beating quality opponents.Are the Ravens good enough to make the playoffs in 2014? Sure, as long as they win next week and receive some outside help from other less-than-stellar talent in the AFC. Plenty of teams have made the playoffs without looking like they “deserve” it.But it’s difficult envisioning the Ravens going on any kind of a significant run in January, especially with the offense regressing over the last few weeks and a defense with band-aids upon band-aids in the secondary. The uncertainty after injuries to offensive tackles Eugene Monroe and Rick Wagner certainly won’t help, either.Sunday brought reality into a nightmarish focus.The Ravens not only lost control of their path to the postseason, but their proven late-season mettle appeared to slip away with it.They can begin trying to find it again next week, but there’s no guarantee the ride will continue beyond that.And they have no one to blame but themselves.last_img read more

AJ has banked £28,843,481 in cash, with a further £10,128,030 owed to him by debtors.He paid out £2,081,317 in tax. The accounts cover a period BEFORE Johsua lost his belts to Andy Ruiz Jr in June last year, before winning the rematch in December.Meanwhile fellow British heavyweight champ Tyson Fury is also hoping to follow in AJ’s footsteps after The Sun revealed he has trademarked his favourite insult, “You Big Dosser”.Fury – who stopped Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas last weekend to win the WBC title – can now sell products with the catchphrase.

first_imgThe struggling Proteas batsmen seem to be battling with a multitude of travails at the World Cup, with batting coach Dale Benkenstein mentioning the weight of the South African team’s past history at the event as well as the different pitches they have played on as contributing to the malaise.But the selection policies of the team have also surely not helped. South Africa came into the tournament with an unsettled batting line-up and then have not picked the same top six in any of their four games thus far.ALSO READ: ‘Relaxed’ Amla WILL deliver for ProteasDavid Miller was the shock exclusion from the opening match against England, the concussed Hashim Amla was resting when Bangladesh shocked the Proteas, Aiden Markram sat out the India game and then JP Duminy was dropped for the washed-out fixture with the West Indies.“Ottis Gibson has been very clear about picking the team based on the different sides we’re up against and the pitches we’ve had, and to be fair no-one is really making enough runs. I don’t think it’s too many changes and we only have seven batsmen to choose from anyway. We just need to get on that roll and then the line-up will be more stable,” Benkenstein said.“Our history at the tournament also does not help, although we obviously try and put the history away, the guys do feel the pressure. In the past we’ve had amazing all-rounders and a very long batting line-up, now we’re relying on our top six. It’s also difficult playing against a different team every game, normally you play a few times against the same opposition and you can sum them up.“Here you are playing one-off games and they’re also on different pitches, some of which have been really tough to bat on up front. The one in Southampton had extra bounce and was quite quick. We’re doing all the right things in our preparation but it’s just not happening for us. We’re practising as hard as we can and giving the batsmen as much confidence as we can, reminding them of when they were playing well,” Benkenstein added.South Africa’s chances of making the semi-finals are now probably a similar ratio to the Rand’s value in the Eurozone, but Benkenstein says the Proteas still believe and they just need to be more patient.“You don’t become a bad team in one week, we just need to get our heads down and get it right. And we can get it right, we’ve done it before. Because it’s the World Cup, maybe we think we have to do things better than before instead of just remembering how we’ve done things in the past. We don’t have to be Superman. Talking to the individuals though, they all feel good and that success is just around the corner.“We just need to get the balance right, maybe the guys are trying to accelerate too fast. Head down and just ticking over means you have more batting at the end of the game and showing patience brings your good hitters at the end into the game. It’s up to the top six to bat the majority of the overs. You’ve got to look after the first 10-15 overs because if you’re in trouble then, it becomes very tough, especially with our batting line-up,” Benkenstein said.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
