first_img The ‘City Til We Die Group’ met with Allam 10 days ago and held what it described as “essentially positive” exchanges. In a statement released through the club on Monday, though, Allam said: “Having been deprived of opportunities to acquire the stadium freehold, which would have enabled us to create the infrastructure in the surrounding area, we will now need to focus on generating commercial income from elsewhere. “A shorter club name will hopefully enable us to do so, with a stronger, quicker marketing impact all over the world.” The statement went on to say that while Allam’s preference remains ‘Hull Tigers’, he will first ensure the financial benefits of making such a switch stack up. Allam also added he felt fans understood his need to generate new income streams, saying: “I believe the representatives at the meeting accepted that there is a wider issue at hand, in that we need to ensure the club can sustain itself through commercial income.” A final decision is expected to be made early in 2014. The current name of Hull City Tigers only refers to the company and not the team. Allam changed the club’s name from Hull City AFC to Hull City Tigers earlier this year and has a longer-term view of making it Hull Tigers, having previously described ‘City’ as a “lousy” and “common” word. Allam believes this will give Hull a greater chance of generating revenue – especially as the council own their ground – but many supporters are against the proposed switch. Hull owner Assem Allam wants to press ahead with his plans to rename the club despite recent talks with supporters who are against the idea.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgOn paper, Nigeria and Guinea are the automatic picks to progress to the knockout stages from Group B as they are both ranked higher and more experienced than both Burundi and Madagascar who are making their tournament debuts.But, on the pitch, this will be a totally different story as the two new entrants to the AFCON have proved to be tough with Burundi especially, who qualified ahead of the likes of Gabon led by Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.Nigeria Head Coach Gernot Rohr has warned his side not to try and underrate anyone in the group as the Super Eagles seek their fourth African crown, starting off their campaign with the group matches in Alexandria. The Super Eagles, ranked third best in Africa and 45th in the world have won the tournament three times.They qualified as Group E winners, topping with 13 points after four victories, a draw and a loss. They finished just a point ahead of South Africa, who handed them their only loss in the qualification process.Nigeria return to the Africa Cup of Nations after missing the last two editions and having played in last year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia, are regarded as one of the favourites to lift the title in Egypt. The last time Eagles won was in 2013 when they defeated Burkina Faso 1-0 courtesy a Sunday Mba goal.The other times they have won the title was in 1980 and 1994 when it was hosted in Tunisia.Though he admits it will be tough, German Rohr believes his side will be in Cairo to compete for the honours especially with the weight of expectations of a whole Nigerian population on their shoulders.“I think lot of teams can dream to win this trophy. We have the experience from the World Cup, but again, we have a young team. We were the youngest at the World Cup and probably we will still be the youngest at this AFCON.”Rohr has put in a blend of youth and experience in his squad but the most positive addition is the return of influential midfielder John Mikel Obi who had not played for the team since the World Cup in Russia.The tactician has also included in-form Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze and fellow FIFA U-17 World Cup winner Victor Osimhen in the final team for Egypt and will be in line for their senior team debuts.Chukwueze has been on form for the Yellow Submarines in the Spanish La Liga scoring five goals in 26 appearances and he was picked up ahead of the more experienced Kelechi Iheanacho who has struggled at Leicester City.But he will have to compete for a place in the starting team with the experienced Odion Ighalo who was the top scorer in the qualifiers with seven goals.In their ranks, the Super Eagles also have Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi and the ever green Ahmed Musa.They open their campaign on Saturday against Burundi in Alexandria.Nigeria’s group matches include; Nigeria v Burundi – (June 22), Nigeria v Guinea (June 26), Madagascar v Nigeria (June 30).THE SQUADGoalkeepers: Francis Uzoho (Anorthosis Famagusta, Cyprus); Ikechukwu Ezenwa (Katsina United); Daniel Akpeyi (Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa)Defenders: Olaoluwa Aina (Torino, Italy); Abdullahi Shehu (Bursaspor, Turkey); Chidozie Awaziem (Rizespor, Turkey); William Ekong (Udinese, Italy); Leon Balogun (Brighton, England); Kenneth Omeruo (CD Leganes, Spain); Jamilu Collins (SC Padeborn 07, Germany)Midfielders: John Mikel Obi (Middlesbrough, England); Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City, England); Oghenekaro Etebo (Stoke City, England); John Ogu (Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Israel)Forwards: Ahmed Musa (Al Nassr, Saudi Arabia); Victor Osimhen (Royal Charleroi, Belgium); Moses Simon (Levante, Spain); Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray SK, Turkey); Odion Ighalo (Shanghai Shenhua, China); Alexander Iwobi (Arsenal, England); Samuel Kalu (Girondins Bordeaux, France); Paul Onuachu (FC Midtjylland, Denmark); Samuel Chukwueze (Villarreal, Spain)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_img Submit Brexit has once again dominated the UK headlines, with questions now being raised as to who may be replacing Theresa May as Prime Minister if she is to step down. With MPs set to convene in the House of Commons this evening to vote yet again on Theresa May’s deal, it appears that the country is more divided than ever. With over one million people taking to the streets of London to call for the Government to revoke Article 50, bookmakers have seen a flurry of votes suggesting that the public are in favour of either delaying or cancelling brexit all together.Sarbjit Bakhshi, Head of Political Markets at Smarkets, explained to SBC that the recent petition to revoke Article 50 – which is currently at over 5.9m signatures – demonstrates a wish to remain in the European Union.Markets initially suggested that the petition, despite being dismissed by Parliament earlier in the week, was expected to gain 6m signatures by 30 March. However, the market has since flipped, with the exchange implying that the petition will not receive as many signatures as expected.Bakhshi told SBC: “With time running out and no consensus in the House of Commons, a revocation of Article 50 would take the time pressure of Parliament and pave the way to a slower Brexit of remaining in the EU. “Theresa May may be gambling on the pressure, pushing parliamentarians to support her deal and leading to a Brexit in a couple of weeks. Without the pressure, this situation may never fully resolve.”But with further disruption in Parliament, Theresa May has promised MPs that if her deal is to pass in tonight’s vote, she will resign. This has opened up a competition as to who will replace May, with Michael Gove and Boris Johnson earmarked as the favourites.Bakhshi continued: “The last few days have had Michael Gove and Boris Johnson compete for top place in out market. With last traded prices at 18% for Johnson and Gove, the market can’t seem to resolve which one of them is more likely to get the top job, but what is clear is how far ahead they are of the competition with Dominic Raab in third place at 12%”Tonight’s vote, according to Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom “really is the last chance” to pass a deal, but with many Labour MPs expected to vote against the deal, it is beginning to look a lot like a “blindfold Brexit.” Whatever happens with Brexit, there will be a number of implications for the gambling industry with the racing Tripartite agreement under threat, and European-based operators moving their businesses elsewhere.

first_imgIn retrospect, Chris Newsome would still try to hit the ball off the glass on that final attempt Friday night.ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding “Just more focus on putting it with a softer touch off the glass. That’s what I know for next time.”Asked if dunking home the lob pass from KG Canaleta would’ve been the best shot selection on that particular play, the high-flying guard doesn’t think so.“Not necessarily. That would’ve been hard for me to dunk. My momentum carried me backwards,” said Newsome, who finished with 15 points, five rebounds and seven assists.The 27-year-old Newsome said the team works on “situational plays” during practice and that particular alleyoop play was part of those.“We go through situational plays in practice and that’s one of them. It was a great play. Coach Norman had great intentions on that one and I just didn’t fall through but it’s one of those things that you live and learn.”ADVERTISEMENT The Hotshots dodged a bullet following Newsome’s miss and while they worked their way back from a seven-point deficit, 79-72, with under two minutes left, coach Chito Victolero admitted his team wouldn’t have escaped without having a stroke of luck.“Newsome would’ve made that nine times out of 10. That was probably the one time he couldn’t make it. We got lucky.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial Only next time, he would bank it in a more gentle manner that could have had a different result.Newsome failed to convert a last-second alleyoop off a well-designed sideline out of bounds play in Meralco’s heartbreaking 81-79 loss to Magnolia in 2018 PBA Philippine Cup.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“It was a great play just a bad miss, but I gotta move on,” said Newsome while shaking his head.READ: PBA: Macklin lifts Magnolia past Meralco in farewell game  Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls MOST READ Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
