Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad have jetted off to Spain for a warm-weather training camp during the winter break. But Ighalo was blocked from joining his new team-mates over fears he would be barred from re-entering the UK amid the coronavirus threat. In their absence, Ighalo has used the time to knuckle down at the training ground ahead of his Red Devils debut. And the 30-year-old, who is on a season-long loan, has even found time to check out some swanky new pads. Ighalo, dressed in black shorts and a hoodie, was pictured making his way into the hotel with a handful of documents. He is currently staying at the Lowry – where Jose Mourinho spent the entirety of his time at United between 2016 and 2018. Bruno Fernandes, who joined the club from Sporting for £55m, is also living at the four-and-a-half star complex. The former Watford star appeared to be looking at a brochure for DAMAC Properties, who have a huge portfolio of luxury real estate in the Middle East and UK.

Recto also slammed what he called TWG’s “arbitrariness” on imposing a 10,000 bikers limit for each motorcycle-hailing firm participating in the pilot study. “Lumalabas din na kulang ang public consultation din ninyo kaya kayo na-TRO ng korte, ‘yun ang dahilan. Tapos dahil na-TRO kayo, galit naman ang pinapakita ninyo,” Recto said. “Ngayon may hearing tayo, may dokumento ngayon kayo ngayon na nagsasabi itigil na namin ito (pilot study), at ‘pag binasa ko ‘yung dokumento parang napakatindi ng galit ninyo,” Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said. Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian echoed Recto’s sentiment saying that he could not see the basis of TWG’s recommendation to terminate the pilot testing on motorcycle taxis. “We are resorting to legal rigmarole sa nangyayaring ito. Bale, nagfile sila ng kaso na nai-impede ang study…We cannot gather data because of actions being undertaken on one of the players so it is better to terminate it,” he added. “Wala ho kasing basehan ‘tong lahat eh at narinig niyo naman po ‘yung sinabi ng ating mga senador at lahat ho kami sumasangayon na hindi ho tama itong resolusyon na ginawa ho ninyo dahil kawawa at nagdudusa ho ang ating mga pasahero,” Gatchalian said. Gardional, who heads the technical working group (TWG) for the motorcycle taxi’s pilot run, said that the motorcycle taxis will be deemed “illegal.” “It’s really very significant but then it’s also half of the three months ‘yung study natin, we cannot gather data because of the legal impediments,” Gardiola said at the Senate. LTFRB board member Antonio Gardiola Jr. said Monday they have recommended the termination of the pilot study meant to assess the safety of bikes for public transport. Meanwhile, some Senators have questioned the recommendation of the TWG under the Department of Transportation (DOTr) to terminate the pilot program for motorcycle taxis as the move appears to be just an act of revenge. MANILA – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) will start impounding motorcycles-for-hire or motorcycle taxi next week. “Maliwanag sa dokumentong ito eh, puro galit din e. Dahil nag-rally laban sa inyo, galit na kaagad kayo. Kulang kayo sa public consultation eh, ‘yan ang problema ninyo,” he added. In June last year, a six-month pilot run was approved to help Congress further evaluate pending bills seeking to legalize the use of motorcycles as public utility vehicles. It should originally set to end on December 26, 2019, but was extended until March 23, 2020./PN

The 20-year-old midfielder had not played since the opening day of the season because of a knee problem, but featured for the opening 45 minutes for the club’s under-21 side against their Fulham counterparts at Motspur Park. The former Southampton man’s return comes at a timely moment for Wenger, with Theo Walcott having this week been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Published on February 20, 2015 at 5:04 pm Contact Jon: firstname.lastname@example.org | @jmettus Jenn Gilligan started to worry about her body about halfway through this season.Feeling sore and fatigued, the Syracuse goalie had played in all but one of SU’s games and was second in the country in minutes played. But when the team took its month-long break from games in December and two-week long break from practice, Gilligan took the time to rejuvenate.“I tried to stay off the ice as much as I could,” Gilligan said.Since the break, Gilligan has started every game and been on the ice 99.2 percent of the time — her only absences because of an empty net or delayed penalty. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith just two games left in the regular season, Gilligan’s 1,845 minutes and 48 seconds played rank second in the country. In a year when the Orange has more ties than any year in program history and has struggled to score — failing to tally more than two goals in 22 of 32 games this season — goalie play has been crucial.In three of each of the last four games, Gilligan conceded just one goal. She will look to continue her success when the Orange (9-13-10, 7-5-6 College Hockey America) hosts Rochester Institute of Technology (10-17–5, 4-11-3) on Friday at 7 p.m. in Tennity Ice Pavilion and travels to Rochester for its final regular-season game on Saturday at 3 p.m.“She’s been great for our team,” goalie Amanda Cariddi said.Over the past four seasons, Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan had run a two-goalie rotation with Kallie Billadeau and Jenesica Drinkwater. One goalie started around 20 games and the other recorded starts a handful fewer each year.But at the beginning of this season, Flanagan had three options in net: Gilligan, a transfer from New Hampshire who hadn’t played a game in 18 months, Cariddi, who joined the team last year after playing on SU’s women’s club ice hockey team and Abbey Miller, a freshman.Gilligan’s athleticism and experience set her apart from the other two and she got the start right away.Her only absence of the season came when a concussion knocked her out of three straight practices in October and the game that Saturday. But by Sunday, Gilligan was back in net.“I’m surprised my body has held up as well as it has, playing the amount of minutes that I have,” Gilligan said. “Hopefully it can hold itself together for a few more weeks.”In the Orange’s nine wins this season, Gilligan has averaged one goal allowed per game and a 95.9 save percentage. Syracuse has gone to overtime 12 times and Gilligan has surrendered a goal only twice during the extra time. On Feb. 13, against Lindenwood, Gilligan stopped multiple odd-man rush opportunities before the chances eventually overwhelmed her, though she held on for the tie. On Feb. 14, the goalie made a pad save with her right leg on a penalty shot late in the third period to preserve SU’s win over Lindenwood.“There’s a lot of big saves she’s made that sometimes go unnoticed,” Flanagan said. “She’s had to come up huge for us.”The Orange is currently tied with Penn State for second place in the CHA. With two wins and at least one tie or loss from Penn State this weekend, SU would clinch a No. 2 seed and first-round bye in the conference tournament. At worst, the Orange will host a best-of-three series as the No. 3 seed in the first round next weekend.“If we just had some run-of-the-mill goaltender, Flanagan said, “… we would probably be staring at going on the road next week, to be honest with you, so that’s the difference.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
This coming Saturday night is a big, big, big one for No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 16 Michigan State.And for the rest of the Big Ten, Saturday’s game in East Lansing might be just as big as well. The last shred of respect for the conference is hanging in the balance.All throughout last year, the Big Ten was known as a top-heavy league, with teams like Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan State wedging themselves at the top of the podium for the conference crown (for now, we’ll just forget about the fact that two of those teams lost their bowl games while the third had to vacate its victory).From there, the talent level dropped a healthy amount to a disappointing team in Iowa and then pretty much plummeted from there.This year, it seemed like the Big Ten would have a similarly unequal distribution of talent at the top. Instead, it was worse than expected.After beginning the season ranked in or just outside the top 10 of the two major preseason polls, the Badgers, through six games, have done nearly everything right. They’ve outscored opponents 301-58 and put forth a strong Heisman candidate despite playing through a steady string of injuries, especially on defense.When you compare it to the rest of the league, you’d almost expect an Occupy Camp Randall campaign to spring up.So, if Wisconsin faltered Saturday, you can imagine the disappointment it would incur on the league as a whole if its only national title contender didn’t come as advertised.There are varying forms of disappointment all over the league already. For starters, Ohio State (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) was still expected to make noise this year with a rock-solid defense, but instead the Buckeyes look lost following continued rules violations and player suspensions.Nebraska holds a respectable record (5-1, 1-1), but seems to have been over-hyped in the preseason. Its defense played disappointing football all throughout the non-conference season and their conference games have been ugly as well.The Huskers were blown out of Madison 48-17 and found themselves down 27-6 in the third quarter a week later against the Buckeyes before waking up and coming back to win.To make matters worse, its second-team All-American defensive tackle, Jared Crick, is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle.Michigan wasn’t fooling anybody before this past weekend either. Michigan State came into last Saturday’s game at No. 23 and was the first ranked opponent of the year for then-No. 11 Michigan and thumped the Wolverines 28-14.Illinois, however, became a source for optimism this year, rising as high as No. 16 in the rankings. But a home loss to unranked Ohio State on Saturday dropped the Illinoisans to No. 23 and raised more doubts as to whether they’re for real or not.Meanwhile, Penn State has sneakily entered the BCS rankings at No. 21, ahead of Illinois, thanks to tip-top defense that has allowed the sixth-fewest points in the nation. But when one considers that its defense has only faced one test so far (against Alabama) and that the offense is 96th in scoring, you wonder how long they’ll last in the polls.That leaves Wisconsin and Michigan State. The Spartans are plenty responsible for the early-season disrespect the Big Ten has faced thanks to their 31-13 loss to unranked Notre Dame in Week 3, and after their offense looked anemic a week later against OSU, many thought MSU was another Big Ten washout.But that’s changed somewhat after last week’s win over Michigan, though, as the Spartan ‘D’ is garnering some serious street cred.Ranking second in total defense and fourth in points allowed, the MSU defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi added a dash of machismo following a game in which his presiding unit was flagged six times for unnecessary roughness. According to Andy Staples of SI.com, Narduzzi told reporters: “That’s what we try to do, 60 minutes of unnecessary roughness. I’m just happy it didn’t get called on every snap.”MSU safety Isaiah Lewis later added that his teammates on the defensive line are going to “hurt” UW quarterback Russell Wilson on Saturday.(I have to pause and point out that I think this kind of tough-guy language is a wonderful way to set up your team’s best unit for self-destruction. Again, the Spartans had six unnecessary roughness penalties against the Wolverines. In the game, defensive end William Gholston leaped on an already-tackled Denard Robinson, grabbed his facemask and purposefully twisted the helpless man’s neck. Later, Gholston threw a punch at another Wolverine. This kind of behavior, followed by boasting, is a fantastic way of guaranteeing officials to run a tight match the next time the Spartans play. In his article, Staples mentioned Narduzzi drew a distinction between“close calls” and “stupid penalties,” yet choosing the phrase “unnecessaryroughness” is curious. Given the shameful play by Gholston, I’m surprised Narduzzi would go on record afterwards approving roughness at all.)As the Legends Division’s sole undefeated team in conference play, Michigan State certainly has shed the feel of another washout, but the Big Ten can’t afford to have its only contender in Wisconsin fall to a team ranked in the mid-teens.Ranked sixth in the first BCS rankings, Wisconsin is short on respect itself thanks to a weak schedule, but the high-flying Badgers remain the main reason why the Big Ten has any respect at all for the moment.If Sparty wins Saturday, the main reaction won’t be to give Michigan State acclaim – it’ll be to cast out Wisconsin as another Big Ten dud, leaving the conference without a team worthy of being compared to anything the SEC or Big 12 have.Elliot is a junior majoring in journalism.
