Berahino rescues point for Baggies

first_img It was a poor goal to concede but the Baggies almost levelled five minutes later only for Speroni to turn Craig Gardner’s rising drive wide. Graham Dorrans then fired over but it was a brief bright spot from the sloppy Baggies who struggled to deal with Bolasie and Zaha. The duo were a constant threat and Bolasie’s cross was inches away from Campbell after West Brom had lost possession. Organised and robust the visitors were in control against their hosts, who looked short of ideas despite just one defeat in their last five games. And Palace probably should have had a penalty nine minutes before the break when Dawson appeared to fell Zaha but Clattenburg ignored any – muted – appeals. Yet the Eagles did make it 2-0 from the spot on 45 minutes when the hapless Sebastien Pocognoli clattered into Bolasie. It was a foolish tackle so close to half-time and Jedinak sent Foster the wrong way to put Palace in complete control – a position which weakened six minutes after the break in controversial style. Berahino – who had been quiet – forced Speroni into a fine low stop from 18 yards but the Baggies scored from the resulting corner. Brunt’s delivery found Anichebe, who had replaced Stephane Sessegnon at half-time, to nod in but Speroni had been fouled after defender Dawson clattered into him. The keeper needed treatment for a head injury and was eventually replaced by Wayne Hennessey – although not before initially refusing to come off in comical fashion. The game had changed and Palace had relinquished their comfortable advantage with the Baggies finding their missing belief. Gardner kissed the bar from 25 yards before Berahino blazed over from the edge of the area with 14 minutes left. Palace’s threat had been nullified and the Baggies finally levelled in injury time when Jedinak’s rash challenge on Anichebe in the area allowed Berahino to drill in low from the spot. Saido Berahino’s injury-time penalty rescued a point for West Brom as they fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Crystal Palace. Brede Hangeland and Jedinak’s penalty had fired Palace into a commanding half-time lead. Palace were also denied what appeared to be a clear first-half spot-kick when referee Mark Clattenburg failed to spot Dawson’s foul on Wilfried Zaha. Goalkeeper Ben Foster returned for West Brom having missed Monday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United with a calf injury. Berahino started up front for the in-form Baggies, with £10million record signing Brown Ideye again on the bench after recovering from an ankle injury. Palace boss Neil Warnock made three changes from last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea as Zaha, Adrian Mariappa and Marouane Chamakh replaced Jason Puncheon, James McArthur and the suspended Damien Delaney. After a quiet opening Palace began to dominate against the lethargic Baggies. Yannick Bolasie’s 18-yard effort deflected wide before Foster turned Fraizer Campbell’s header over on 16 minutes – only for Palace to score from the resulting corner. Bolasie’s cross caused chaos and Hangeland poked in from inside the six-yard box after his initial header had cannoned off Dawson. The striker slammed in his eighth goal of the season after Mile Jedinak had felled Victor Anichebe, who had started the Baggies comeback when he nodded in early in the second half. Palace were upset, though, as Craig Dawson fouled Julian Speroni to allow Anichebe to score – forcing the keeper off with a head injury. Press Associationlast_img read more

Nadal: “It is hard for me to watch myself play without analyzing myself, just enjoying myself”

first_imgConcerning the Madrid event he recalled that he had an advanced debut. “The primary match was key. I had a really tough opponent (Fognini), that match had to be handed”, he claimed. He then signed two “massive video games” in opposition to Goffin and Djokovic to attain the ultimate in opposition to Dominic Thiem. “From the match with Thiem I particularly bear in mind the ‘tie-break’ of the primary set, I believe he gave me the match. Then you may have to win, however it was a really worn set. He had set balls and the ‘tie-break’ was very tough “, he identified about that remaining that gave him his fifth title within the Spanish capital.As well as, the Balearic recalled that that 2017 was a particular yr, as a result of it got here from two “difficult” seasons. “It was a particular yr for me as a result of I used to be getting back from an extended damage and in 2015 maybe probably the most tough yr of my profession, as a result of without being injured I didn’t handle to play my finest stage,” he stated. “In 2017 I had three finals and received Monte Carlo. It was my first title, once more on the bottom, and profitable in Madrid was the fruits. It gave me a singular feeling like profitable at house that I used to be lacking, “he recalled. Spanish tennis participant Rafa Nadal stays little optimistic concerning the return of the competitors, as soon as the coronavirus disaster permits, however he does higher day-to-day, now with the potential for coaching away from house, and watching video games on tv, even when it is tough for him to take pleasure in without analyzing himself. “In the mean time I have no idea after we will compete, I see an unsure and much future when it comes to restarting the competitors. We have now been all this time, getting higher, it was a really radical change, with very dangerous information, however with the times getting higher”, he identified this Wednesday in an interview with Teledeporte, collected by Europa Press.Nadal positively appreciated having the ability to practice and didn’t need to have a look at the long run. “Doing my jobs at house and till lately we’ve got been in a position to practice once more. I’m not pondering all day ‘now I’d be in Barcelona, ​​Madrid or Montecarlo’. The necessary factor now is to get better our lifestyle and later there shall be a variety of work to get better the exercise in every sector, “he stated. The 19 ‘massive’ champion reviewed the 2017 Mutua Madrid Open, which was later broadcast on the identical channel, in a season of watching outdated video games on TV. “I’ve been watching a variety of video games. It is all the time stunning, from the surface I see it tougher than from the within. From exterior I take pleasure in tennis, I worth issues, though it is tough for me to have a look at myself without analyzing myself, just enjoying myself, “he stated.last_img read more

Coalition bridge is breaking down

first_imgDear Editor,It is clearer now than ever before that the coalition bridge is breaking down. Evidence of this fragmentation seems to be spiralling from all angles as a bitter divorce looms.The unravelling of the incestuous relationship comes as no surprise to many. This is since there were really no core foundation principles that would have hopefully merged into something stronger, in support of national and local development. The implication points to the ultimate and further weakening of national and local governance structures which must be remedied with some measure of objectivity.One cannot help but observe the shallowness of decisions, levels of unpreparedness and lack of the coordination of this underperforming coalition. Recently, several A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) members refused to sit in the Parliament when the vote was about to be taken in relation to objections advanced by the Opposition regarding the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) staff’s duty-free vehicle concessions.The situation was indeed overwhelming and quite shameful when Chairman of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan and Business Minister Dominic Gaskin abstained from voting with their colleagues on the Government benches. It was also most embarrassing to see the Leader of the AFC, Raphael Trotman and the Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo voting for the motion and the other members voting with the Opposition against the motion.Is this the way that the Members of Parliament representing the Government wish to convey their representation of the people in the country’s highest decision-making body? It is quite obvious and troubling that such levels of unpreparedness regarding critical national matters do not augur well for the coordination required in moving Guyana forward. Simply put, this coalition Government is signalling their resolve and focus on bribing and fooling people to win their support.This motion itself was one which should not have been brought to the honourable House in the first place.This motion was before the House for several weeks for debate. And the APNU/AFC were made fully aware that it was wicked and nasty to use their parliamentary single-seat majority to pass such a motion when these matters could be dealt with by existing policies and rules to govern exemption of taxes and entitlements. It was indeed a total waste of time and abuse of the entire parliamentary mechanism, staff and money to facilitate such skulduggery.The Public Service Register for travelling positions is clear regarding the categories for Ministries, agencies and departments which should be beneficiaries and the level of benefits which should be accorded. Most ridiculous was the fact that many on the Government benches were lying through their teeth because it is public knowledge that Surrender Lall-Boodhoo is not working at the FIU office.It is important to point out that the granting of the concessions by the National Assembly would have been creating a serious precedent in the entire public/civil service, along with all the related agencies. Critically, it highlights the priorities of selected members on the Governments’ side, as well as their lack of concern for critical areas which should be truly prioritised and supported.Reference herein is made to the Commissioners of the Local Government Commission, whose critical role in the functions of municipalities, village and Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) demand that they are granted concessions for vehicles as a critical support.Further, there are literally hundreds of similar cases, in the Ministries, State agencies, semi-autonomous bodies, and constitutional agencies that will not only be demanding the same concessions, but are truly deserving of the support. The Opposition has saved this nation from a PNC-planned recipe for riot in the demand for duty-free concessions, and towards measures for a more objective approach to be pursued.The Minister of Finance must assert himself and he should have brought a ‘Bill’ to change the law and give the GRA Commissioner General the powers to take the appropriate action where necessary if the current system needs any adjustments.Sincerely,Neil Kumarlast_img read more
