Rashford out for three months

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Marcus Rashford will be sidelined for three months after he picked up a double stress fracture in Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Wolves. The forward came off the bench, but was quickly hauled back off in a move that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits “backfired”. Rashford was always set to miss United’s trip to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, but it soon became apparent that the 22-year-old could be out for considerably longer. Journalist Henry Winter has since reported that the Red Devils star will miss a large chunk of what remains of the current campaign. He tweeted: “Rashford was carrying a single stress fracture in his back, now has a double stress fracture after Wolves game. Expected to be out for 2-3 months. “Also has piece of floating bone in his ankle requiring non-intrusive surgery to remove. Been playing thru immense pain to help #mufc.” Before United’s game with Liverpool at Anfield, Solskjaer was questioned about his star man’s absence and was clearly aware of the potential diagnosis. He said: “He [Rashford] got a couple of knocks again and a couple of jolts when he came on against Wolves, and he’s aggravated his back. “He’s had some trouble before and of course we are going to give him time to recover and rest before we put him back on the pitch. He’s always recovered quickly before so let’s hope he does that again. “I wouldn’t expect him to be back in the next few weeks and we’ve got a mid-season break.” It leaves Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as United’s only options in attack and may encourage them to act before the January transfer window closes.— Tags: Manchester UnitedMarcus RashfordOle Gunnar SolskjaerRed Devillast_img read more

Pardew exasperated over Cabaye saga

first_img Asked if the former Lille midfielder had played his last game for the club, Pardew said: “I don’t know until 11pm [on Monday]. “We have told his agent, ‘Look, come on, play the game’, because we have got to replace him [if we sell him] and we can’t afford to replace him before he goes because we’re not sure he is going to go. “That bid needs to come in, if it’s coming in, early. If not, it won’t happen – well, I think it won’t happen, but you can never tell with this football club. “We have got replacements in mind, but we need to act quickly if that bid comes in. We still hope to get an offensive player in before 11pm [on Monday] and we are working towards that.” Both the Cabaye saga and Newcastle’s search for reinforcements are ongoing, but thankfully for the club, their wait for a home win in the league is not after it came to an end at the fifth attempt. It did so in fitting style with Ben Arfa’s superb 86th-minute strike, the Magpies’ first league goal in 411 minutes of football, worthy of winning any game. Pardew said: “The goal came from Hatem and I was pulling my hair out today with him. He was making bad decisions in terms of his selection of pass, he was not really doing what we want him to do in that wide area. “And then he created three or four moments in the game that can change it, a couple of balls he slid across and we didn’t connect with, and then the goal was fantastic. The 27-year-old France midfielder was introduced to a mixed reaction from the club’s fans as a 65th-minute substitute in Saturday afternoon’s Barclays Premier League win. Compatriot Hatem Ben Arfa proved the match-winner, but Cabaye’s future remained one of the main talking points after the final whistle with Monday night’s transfer deadline fast approaching and no second bid from the Gunners having yet materialised. “That’s Hatem. He makes us slightly dysfunctional at times, but he can win us a game at any level and he did that today.” The goal had been coming, but until it arrived, it looked like being another frustrating afternoon for Pardew and his players. Fulham keeper David Stockdale had denied both Mathieu Debuchy and Papiss Cisse before the break, and Cisse saw a 78th-minute header come back off the bar before substitute Yoan Gouffran glanced wide with the goal at his mercy. However, Ben Arfa’s left-foot bullet after he jinked between John Arne Riise and Alex Kacaniklic sparked a late onslaught during which Stockdale denied both Debuchy and debutant Loic Remy. Pardew said: “A lot has been written and some of it has actually not been correct. “But actually at the end of the day, it’s results you need, it backs it up. We have won today, we won in midweek with a few of our squad players and it’s been a good week for us. “If we can get through Monday by improving the team again, whichever way it comes, then we will be in good shape.” Fulham boss Martin Jol left St James’ Park as he did last season ruing a late goal and insisting his team had deserved at least a point. He said: “We could have done a lot of damage today and got the points on the board. “If you look at the possession, we could get out of their pressure. It was almost too easy. “Last year it was the same, they scored one goal and they are over the moon as if they played great. But they didn’t. We should have had at least a point.” Alan Pardew ordered Arsenal to put up or shut up over their pursuit of Yohan Cabaye after seeing Newcastle snatch a dramatic 1-0 victory over Fulham.

Stallone to make Goodison call

first_img The star of the famous Rocky boxing franchise is filming a spin-off picture called ‘Creed’. In his latest outing as Rocky, Stallone, 68, trains the grandson of Apollo Creed – the fighter with whom the Philadelphia brawler clashed in the first two Rocky films. In the film Rocky’s pupil – Adonis Creed – will fight against Pretty Boy Porter, who is played by actual British boxer Tony Bellew – and this is where Everton fans come into the equation. Evergreen Sylvester Stallone will call on Everton fans on Monday night to provide him with a knockout scene for his latest film. Bellew, a lifelong Everton fan, has used his connections with the club to book Stallone a slot on the big screens at Goodison Park during the half-time interval of Monday’s game against West Brom. Although details are sketchy – neither Everton nor Bellew have given full details of what will happen – it is thought Stallone will deliver a message to the Everton fans on the screen and it could feature as part of the film. “I would like you to stay in your seats at half-time and keep any eye on the big screens for a very special guest to make a welcome return to Goodison Park,” Bellew said in a cryptic press release issued by the Merseyside club. “Be sure you make as much noise as possible – go absolutely nuts at half-time – to help us create a brilliant atmosphere. I have seen first-hand what kind of noise Evertonians create – it will be perfect for the scene.” Everton added further intrigue with this tweet on Monday afternoon: “Remember to stay in your seats at HT to star alongside @TheSlyStallone and @TonyBellew in the new ‘Rocky’ film. #EFC.” This will not be the first time Stallone has made an ‘appearance’ at Goodison Park. The actor, who was nominated for an Oscar for the first Rocky film, paid a visit to Everton’s ground eight years ago to watch the team take on Reading and was presented to the supporters before kick-off while wearing a Toffees scarf. Although he has been eligible for a bus pass for three years, Stallone has shown no sign that he wants to quit Hollywood any time soon. The American starred in the Expendables 3, which was released last year, and is set to return in a fifth outing as Rambo. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Wisconsin thumps Lindenwood in 5-1 rout

first_imgThe Badgers looked a bit sloppy in the first period of their matchup Friday night, but that didn’t stop them from finding the back of the next six minutes into game one of the series, as they cruised to a 5-1 win.Redshirt junior forward Brittany Ammerman’s shot was deflected off the stick of junior forward Karley Sylvester who redirected the puck into the net, tallying the first goal of the game.Lindenwood was determined to put up a fight.

The goal tied the game at one a piece and sparked something in the Badgers as they scored four unanswered goals to finish off the game.The first came just 30 seconds after the Lindenwood’s goal.

First, Johnson’s daughter, sophomore forward Mikayla Johnson, put in her first as a Badger half way through the second period.“Jones came down on the far side,” Mikayla Johnson said. “She pretty much gave me a perfect pass to my blade and it wasn’t too hard to tap it in.”The Badgers lone goal of the third period was scored by Channell, who was able to slip the puck past Lindenwood goaltender Hensley.last_img read more

Of concern to us is the information that Nigeria is listed as one of the 57 countries participating in the Games.“This information is available on the official web page of the ISSF and can be confirmed at:“The organisers confirmed that the Games are strictly for Islamic countries because the ‘‘ISSF is a section of the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC.)’’“We request that this claim and Nigeria’s participation should be investigated because, including Nigeria in an international engagement based purely on religion violates the spirit and letter of section 10 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). We wish to reiterate that Nigeria is a secular nation and any misrepresentation should be corrected without delay, and Nigeria’s participation be stopped immediately.“We further request you to please call those behind this illegal action to order without delay before further damage is done to the nation’s identity and the perception of the stance of the government of the day as pro-Islam.
