Arsenal hierarchy ignored departing scout’s recommendation to sign Tottenham-bound Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

first_imgArsenal hierarchy ignored departing scout’s recommendation to sign Tottenham-bound Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg Hojbjerg was on Arsenal’s radar but he will join Tottenham this week (Picture: Getty)Arsenal will have to wait a little longer to reinforce their midfield, though, with any move for Partey having to wait until after the culmination of Atletico Madrid’s Champions League campaign.According to The Athletic, a defensive midfielder is not the only player on the agenda, with Arteta also keen to sign a box-to-box midfielder and a No.10 to play behind the striker.Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi will both need to be offloaded to fund those moves, while Arsenal are hoping to secure a second season-long loan for Dani Ceballos after his impressive performances under Arteta.MORE: Arsenal bosses to offer Mesut Ozil massive pay-off to leave the clubMORE: Tottenham register interest in Ainsley Maitland-Niles after Arsenal put him up for sale against Mikel Arteta’s wishesFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

Arteta wants as many as three new midfielders, all with different skillsets (Picture: Getty)Arsenal chiefs Raul Sanllehi and Edu favour a more contact-led approach to transfers and have been looking to streamline the club’s enormous scouting network for some time.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTAnother high-profile casualty is UK scout Peter Clark, who, according to The Athletic, had proposed an alternative to Partey in the shape of Southampton star Hojbjerg.Clark was very keen to sign the Denmark international, who skippered the Saints prior to making it clear he wanted a transfer this summer, but the club’s hierarchy ignored his recommendation.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Governor Wolf Outlines Workforce Training, Restore Pennsylvania for Pipe Trades Workers

first_img Infrastructure,  Press Release Hershey, PA – With budget negotiations continuing with the legislature, Governor Tom Wolf outlined his plan to create the strongest workforce in the nation and address critical infrastructure needs across Pennsylvania. The governor spoke to hundreds of steamfitters, pipefitters, sprinkler fitters, plumbers, HVAC service technicians, and welders at the Pennsylvania Pipe Trade Association Conference in Hershey.“Our commonwealth needs more skilled workers with hands-on training for good jobs that offer family-sustaining wages,” said Governor Wolf. “These are exactly the type of jobs that will be in demand as we begin to address the state’s critical infrastructure needs through my Restore Pennsylvania plan. We can invest in worker training and make lasting improvements from our big cities to our rural communities.”The governor has a comprehensive plan to create the highly skilled and competitive workforce that employers need. The proposed Statewide Workforce, Education, and Accountability Program (SWEAP) expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and collaborates with the private sector to focus job training on in-demand skills. The program builds on the success of the innovative PAsmart initiative launched last year which is expanding science and technology education, apprenticeships and job training.Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax, will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years to help communities address blight, expand broadband access, mitigate the effects of localized flooding, and expand green infrastructure. The plan has bipartisan support in the legislature.Learn more about Gov. Wolf’s Restore Pennsylvania plan.

EPL: Spurs eye sixth spot finish

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Tottenham sign £25m Sergio Reguilon Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Venue: Selhurst Park Kick off: 4PMTottenham Hotspur will be looking to snatch sixth position from Wolverhampton Wanderers when they finish their 2019-20 Premier League campaign away to struggling Crystal Palace this afternoon. Spurs are currently seventh in the table, one point behind sixth-placed Wolves, while Palace have slipped into 14th following a run of seven straight defeats.Palace’s form since beating Bournemouth on June 20 has been incredibly disappointing, losing each of their last seven in the Premier League to go from top-half challengers to a side occupying 14th spot in the table.The Eagles cannot finish lower than 14th regardless of what happens on Sunday, but they could take 13th away from Newcastle United depending on what occurs on the final weekend, with the Magpies taking on Liverpool.Roy Hodgson’s side have lost each of their last three league games at Selhurst Park to Burnley, Chelsea and Manchester United, and it would be fair to say that their performance levels have seriously dipped since reaching 40 points, which will have disappointed their supporters.It promises to be an interesting summer transfer window for the club as Hodgson has recently spoken of his desire to sign a new striker, with the London outfit once again struggling for goals, netting just 30 times in the league, which is the second worst record behind already-relegated Norwich City. Spurs, on the other hand, will enter this weekend’s match in impressive form, having won each of their last three in the Premier League.Jose Mourinho’s side lost at Sheffield United on July 2 but have won four and drawn one of their five matches since, including victories over Arsenal and Leicester City in two of their last three during a strong run of form.There is no question that Mourinho will be keen to boost his squad this summer, but there have been plenty of positive signs in recent games, and a spot in next season’s Europa League could be on the cards.Spurs are guaranteed to finish at least seventh in the league, which would bring a Europa League place for the 2020-21 campaign providing that Chelsea win the FA Cup.As mentioned, though, the capital side are only a point behind sixth-placed Wolves, who go to Chelsea on Sunday, and claiming sixth would be a success for Spurs considering their problems during the season. Palace possible XI: Guaita, Ward, Dann, Kelly, Mitchell, Townsend, McArthur, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Zaha, Ayew. Tottenham possible XI: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Lo Celso, Sissoko, Son, Alli, Lucas, Kane.Tags: Crystal PalaceJose MourinhoTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

Stone cold stunner: Wisconsin’s offense disappears, NCAA run ends in 61-54 loss

first_imgNEW ORLEANS (AP) – Matt Howard and Butler are starting to make this look a little bit easier.After narrowly surviving its first two NCAA tournament games by margins of two points or less, Butler led by 20 points before holding on for a 61-54 victory over Wisconsin on Thursday night.Now the Bulldogs are a win away from their second straight Final Four appearance.Howard had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Shelvin Mack scored 13 points and Shawn Vanzant 10 for the eighth-seeded Bulldogs (26-9), who upset top-seeded Pittsburgh by one point in the second round and now have knocked off another higher seed in fourth-seeded Wisconsin.The victory sent Butler into the Southeast regional final, where the Bulldogs meet second-seeded Florida (29-7) on Saturday for a trip to the Final Four.Jordan Taylor scored 22 for Wisconsin (25-9), which shot 30.4 percent (17 of 56). Jon Leuer, normally one of the Badgers’ top offensive forces with 18.7 points per game coming in, was 1 of 12 shooting and finished with three points.Butler was the aggressor from the outset, using quickness and heady play to counter Wisconsin’s size advantage. The Bulldogs took a 6-5 lead on Vanzant’s 3 from the corner and never trailed again in the first half.While the Bulldogs shot 50 percent (12 of 24) in the opening 20 minutes, their defense was equally impressive. Wisconsin came in averaging only 7.5 turnovers per game, but had eight in the first half alone. Taylor, who entered the contest with the nation’s best assist-to-turnover ratio at 4.18, had one assist and two turnovers to that point.The Badgers’ shooting woes only made matters worse. They missed 15 of their first 23 shots. They also uncharacteristically missed four of their first eight free throws after coming in with nation’s best .823 free throw percentage.Wisconsin wound up with 11 turnovers for the game and went 13 of 19 (68.4 percent) from the foul line.Butler began to gradually pull away when Smith scored inside and Chase Stigall turned a steal into a transition 3 to make it 23-16.The Bulldogs later scored the final four points of the first half on Smith’s free throw and Howard’s second 3 in as many tries, giving Butler a 33-24 lead heading into the locker room.Butler then scored the first nine points of the second half, with Mack scoring five during the spurt, to open up a 42-24 lead.Soon after, Howard hit one of his three 3s and Andrew Smith added a layup to make it 47-27 with 11:32 to go.Wisconsin made one last push when Mike Bruesewitz hit a driving layup with 3:21 to go. That sparked a 9-0 run that was capped by Taylor’s 3, pulling Wisconsin to 53-49 with 1:38 left.No stranger to late-game pressure, Butler maintained its composure. Mack came off a screen and drained a jumper from near the foul line, then Vanzant added a free throw to make it 56-49.Taylor hit one last 3 with 34 seconds left to make it 56-52, but Butler made the free throws it need to put the game away.last_img read more

first_img06/15/147:05 PM@ Hays Larks 07/20/147:05 PM@ Liberal Bee Jays The draft While the goal for these young players is to sign with a Major League baseball team, it always causes the Heat to have to adjust. Last year the Heat had four players drafted. Twyman said possibly nine players could get drafted this year during the first week of June.The big prospect currently on the Heat roster is Brad Wieck, who may never don on a Heat uniform. That’s because the Oklahoma City University pitcher has been noticed by the New York Mets which the owner came out to visit. Don’t look for him to stay on the roster long.Twyman checked off these players who have draft potential: Piazza, Jake Howard, Luke Doyle, Casey Thomas, Siple, Rocha, Shaw, Jordan Watson and Wieck.“But again we have enough depth to recover quite nicely,” Twyman said. 06/13/147:05 PM@ Hays Larks 06/22/147:05 PMLiberal Bee Jays 06/05/147:05 PMEl Dorado Broncos 07/28/1412:00 PM 06/28/147:05 PMDodge City Athletics 07/29/147:05 PM 06/26/147:05 PM@ Derby Twins 06/06/147:05 PM@ Dodge City Athletics 07/08/147:05 PMValley Center Diamond Dawgs The scheduleFans can pick up free tickets at the following location.Friday, May 30 vs. Denver Cougars – Bank of Commerce;Saturday, May 31 vs. Denver Cougars – Impact Bank;Sunday, June 1 vs. Kansas Cannons – City of Wellington at the gate.Monday, June 2, vs. Diamond Dawgs, Courtesy of Ark Valley Distributing/Budweiser at the gate.Tuesday, June 3, vs. Denver Cougars – Barefoot Jerry’s.Thursday, June 5 vs. El Dorado Broncos – Reedy Ford at the game.The full schedule is as follows. 06/14/147:05 PM@ Hays Larks 07/01/147:05 PM@ El Dorado Broncos Wellington Heat Players recently held an autograph session for fans at Reedy Ford in Arkansas City.Follow us on Twitter. 07/13/147:05 PMHays Larks 07/15/147:05 PMHays Larks 07/26/147:05 PMOklahoma City Bulls 06/29/147:05 PMDodge City Athletics 06/03/147:05 PMDenver Cougars 07/23/147:05 PMDerby Twins 06/09/147:05 PMTulsa Braves 07/18/147:05 PM@ Liberal Bee Jays 06/27/147:05 PMDodge City Athletics 06/12/147:05 PMDerby Twins 07/25/147:05 PMOklahoma City Bulls 06/19/147:05 PM@ El Dorado Broncoscenter_img 06/30/147:05 PMKansas Cougars 06/18/147:05 PMNewton Rebels 07/30/147:05 PM 07/03/147:05 PMKansas Cannons 07/04/147:05 PMEl Dorado Broncos 06/08/147:05 PM@ Dodge City Athletics 07/05/147:05 PM@ Derby Twins The playersWellington’s roster is stacked.“We have the best pitching in the country,” Twyman said of his NBC team. “Our outfield is the best in the country. It is crazy good.”Twyman said last year Aaron Siple, a returning starter from the University of New Mexico, was without a doubt the best player in the outfield for the Heat.“This year we have three other players who are as good as he is,” Twyman said. “Our coaches, our players, just look at one another and marvel just what kind of talent we have in the outfield.”Kirk Rocha, a fan favorite according to a poll on the Wellington Heat website http://www.wellingtonheat.com/, comes from Tabor College having hit .480 last season for the Bluejays.He will be joined by A.J. Shaw of the University of Arkansas-Little Rock and David Walker of Grand Canyon University.Heat infielders will include returning first baseman Piazza from Regis University; Luke Doyle of Yavapai College and Rowdy Andrews of Eckerd College.Twyman has a roster of 18 pitchers including 12 starters.

This year we will be hit hard by the draft again, but we have the pieces already in place to keep going.”The Heat will be embarking on its second season at Sellers Park Friday night when the Denver Cougars come to town at 7:05 p.m. for opening night.

Springtime means Iowans need to poison-proof their homes for the warm weather

first_imgSIOUX CITY — With the arrival of spring and warmer weather also comes the arrival of new risks and temptations for young ones in our homes, garages and yards.Tammy Noble, a registered nurse and spokeswoman for the Iowa Poison Control Center, says this is National Poison Prevention Week and Iowans need to do a little scouting to ensure their homes are safe for the seasons ahead.  “This is the week that we really try to focus on things that we can do to prevent poisonings,” Noble says. “This isn’t just for families with young children. This is also for adults, because sometimes adults make mistakes, too, and a lot of those errors are things that could be preventable.”During the winter months, Noble says the experts at the hotline get a lot of calls about things like carbon monoxide poisoning, or the accidental consumption of anti-freeze or ice melt pellets. “During spring, we start getting a lot of calls about lawn chemicals, about bugs and bug spray and as we start getting into the sunnier times, which everybody can’t wait for, with that sun comes things like sunscreen calls.”During 2018, Iowans placed nearly 30,000 calls to the Sioux City-based Poison Control Center. That’s down slightly from the previous year, as Noble says so many of us are carrying around easy access to the internet in our pockets. “People are starting to use their handheld resource a lot more,” Nobel says. “People are Googling answers a lot but we always recommend, just call the Poison Center, we’ll answer your question, you’ll know yes-or-no whether it’s a problem. We’ll tell you if you need to go to the hospital. We’ll even give you some help if it’s stuff you can take care of at home.”The call is free and experts are available around-the-clock at 800-222-1222.
