No Daniel Sturridge? How Liverpool could line up with Georginio Wijnaldum

Posted on by

first_img 11 11 11 Centre midfield: Emre Can – Can is ahead of Lucas and Joe Allen in the pecking order for a midfield role shielding the back four, and his physicality and energy will be perfect for the way Klopp likes to play. Right back: Nathaniel Clyne – Clyne is nailed on as the Reds’ right back and Liverpool fans will be expecting him to kick on and improve on his performances from last season. 11 Liverpool are making more moves in the transfer market this week, having already brought in three new faces.Loris Karius, Joel Matip and Sadio Mane have all arrived on Merseyside but two new faces could be joining them imminently.Estonia defender Ragnar Klavan looks set to make a £4.2m move from Augsburg while Jurgen Klopp is also keen to sign Newcastle’s Georginio Wijnaldum for around £25m.While Klavan would be signed as back up, Wijnaldum will be pushing to start for the Reds, but who would he replace in the starting line up?Click the arrow above, right, to see How Liverpool could begin the season with the Dutchman in the starting XI. Goalkeeper: Loris Karius – click the arrow, right, to see how Liverpool could line up next season – Karius looks set to start the season as Klopp’s no.1 despite his mistake against Wigan in pre-season, which would have led to a goal had he not recovered so brilliantly. Left attack: Philippe Coutinho – Coutinho will continue his role of attacking from the left and drifting into the middle to influence proceedings. Centre back: Joel Matip – Reds can expect new signing Matip to be thrust straight into the first team with rumoured fellow new signing Ragnar Klavan to be his back up. 11 11 11 11 Centre forward: Roberto Firmino – Firmino could be preferred to Daniel Sturridge because of his flexibility and willingness to run. Klopp demands total effort from his players and, as such, still appears unconvinced by Sturridge, despite his goals towards the end of last season. Left back: Alberto Moreno – Klopp is interested in bringing in a new left back but Moreno is front runner to start the season in the position, as it stands. 11 Right attack: Sadio Mane – Klopp’s £30m man Mane will form part of a dynamic and hard working attack from the right of the forward triumvirate. Other contenders for the role, left and right, will be Adam Lallana and Danny Ings. Centre back: Dejan Lovren – Lovren may start because of a lack of other options with Kolo Toure released and Mamadou Sakho carrying an injury at present. Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson – As captain Henderson will play a key role for Klopp and will continue with his role in the centre of the pitch, working from box-to-box. 11 11 Centre midfield: Georginio Wijnaldum – If Liverpool seal a £25m move for Wijnaldum from Newcastle, it is likely he would slot in to an attacking midfield role, behind the main forward. last_img read more

Maria Ryan cheers on her fit family before the grand final

Posted on by

first_imgAll of Donegal will be tuning in to support the Ryans from Kilmacrennan in the final of Ireland’s Fittest Family – and their mother Maria couldn’t be more proud.This Sunday, father Danny Ryan (44), and his eldest children Alanna (16), Jordan (17), and Keane (22) face one more round of gruelling physical and mental challenges in their bid to win €15,000 and this year’s title.Former boxing champion Danny leads the clan through the battles, but there’s a lady off camera who has done just as much to raise the winning team. Donegal Woman talked to mother Maria Ryan to see what life has been like since her family entered Ireland’s Fittest Family, and how being the mum of such an active family involves a lot of taxiing… and a lot of laundry!Each challenge has taken the Ryan team to a different place around Ireland. Maria was able to go along to the last three as the numbers of people on the sets narrowed down.“I would never have felt scared watching them do the challenges. I just wanted them to do well. The atmosphere in the car was brilliant coming home from the events, and we were just so happy to get to the next round each week,” said Maria. Between mud runs, bog swims and Hanging Tough challenges over water, the tasks were messy affairs. The red Ryan uniform was often invisible beneath muck at the end of the episodes. As Donegal Woman found out, it’s the mammy that has to do the washing!“I’m sick of the washing! After the events and when they were out training I’d be handed the black bags at the end of the day. There have been a lot of hot washes!”The Ryan family washing line!The location of each challenge would be kept secret until a few days before recording, so the Ryans had to be trained to tackle anything. “We spent a lot of time during the summer practicing for events and always trying to think about what could come up.”Maria is just as into fitness as the rest of the brood. “Horse riding and snorkeling are my things. I go horse-riding with my friends a couple of times a week, and myself and Danny would often go cycling through Glenveagh.”“We’ve always been an active family. We were never ones to be sitting around watching TV.”Between training, school and classes, Maria is the family taxi driver. “I am the taxi,” she laughs, “It’s so busy running them all to training, school and classes. It’s been busy even before they were entered into Ireland’s Fittest Family. Every evening someone needs to go somewhere. We have a good background of friends and family around us who help out with sharing lifts too.” “My time is when the kids are at school. I like to look after my chickens and two dogs and I always use my time to do something active.”Seeing her family reach the final of the show makes Maria a very proud mammy. “Every time I turn on the TV now I see the advert for the final. It’s hard to believe that that’s my family. I’m just so proud.”“No matter what the result, to get to the final it’s amazing and there are so many strong families taking part.”Good luck Team Ryan!

‘It would be a dream’ – Peter Schmeichel backs Kasper to become Man United No.1

Posted on by

first_imgPeter Schmeichel admits it would be a ‘dream’ to see his son Kasper play for Manchester United.The Leicester shot-stopper has been touted as a potential replacement for David de Gea, amid reports the Spaniard is wanted by Real Madrid.Schmeichel snr says the 30-year-old is in no hurry to leave the ambitious Foxes, where he won the Premier League title in remarkable fashion in 2015-16.But he insists Kasper is good enough to follow in his footsteps and be United’s number one should the jersey become available.“It would be a dream”, said Peter, when asked if he would like to see his son in a United shirt.The Premier League legend, who won five titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League in his glittering eight-year spell at Old Trafford, added: “For me, trying to be as neutral and unbiased and not like a father, I think he has done well enough to convince everybody that he can play at the highest level“The doubts were there when he first went into the Premier League over whether he was good enough, but he proved that and in the Champions League last year I thought he did really well. If clubs need a really good goalkeeper, well he is somebody who can be trusted to do that.“Having said that, I am crazy about Leicester, I am crazy about the owners – they are fantastic and really good for the Premier League. There is no shortage of will and money to make Leicester a top four club, or at least top six, top eight. They are prepared to do that and that is a really interesting environment to play football in.“There is no, ‘Kasper needs to move’, kind of feel at the moment, but if an opportunity like that [moving to United] came around, that would be fantastic.”last_img read more

CUTS TO HOME HELP HOURS IS ‘FINANCIAL MADNESS’

Posted on by

first_imgThe Sinn Fein Councillor for the Letterkenny area, Mick Quinn, has described plans by the H.S.E. to reduce Home Help hours by 1,500 per week up the end of the year as “ Financial Madness “.Cllr Quinn said today: “If the aim of the H.S.E. is to save money this will certainly not be achieved by cutting Home Help hours.“The Home Help Service is without doubt the best value for money service being provided by the H.S.E. and any reduction in hours will have a knock on effect on General Hospital , Community Hospital , and Nursing Home beds , which will dramatically impact on the H.S.E.’s budget.” The Letterkenny councillor said that the vast majority of elderly people want to stay in their own homes in “safety and dignity” and the Home Help Service allows this to happen at a fraction of the cost of Hospital and Nursing Home beds.Quinn continued: “Apart from the Financial folly of these plans they have a huge impact on elderly people and are nothing short of cruel.“The compassion which was once the ethos of the Health Service has been sidelined and the only people who stand to gain from these plans are those who own or have invested in Private Nursing Homes.”  CUTS TO HOME HELP HOURS IS ‘FINANCIAL MADNESS’ was last modified: October 3rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CUTS TO HOME HELP HOURS IS ‘FINANCIAL MADNESS’last_img read more

Donegal man helps saves lives as he tackles knifeman in Sydney

Posted on by

first_imgA Donegal man was injured after he helped take down a terrorist who knifed a woman to death and left another injured in Sydney, Australia.Shane Donaghey from Buncrana says he has no doubt that other people would have been killed but for the intervention of brave passers-by.The heroic 38-year-old carpenter was one of a number of people who ran after the attacker and helped pin him to the ground during the attack at Sydney’s Central Business District around 2pm Tuesday (today) afternoon. The 21-year-old attacker, who was shouting Allahu Akbar, was waving a large knife about after he killed the first woman.He stabbed a 41-year-old woman in the back and then tried to attack other passers-by.With no thought for his own safety, selfless Shane and a group of other people ran after the terrorist.Buncrana man Shane Donaghey suffered cuts from the Sydney attack“It was crazy stuff. I just heard this commotion and this guy running down the street with a knife. His hands were covered in blood. “We managed to get on top of him and others used pieces of makeshift furniture to keep him pinned down until the police arrived.“He was as weak as p*** when we got to him. He was still shouting Allahu Akbar.“He was a hard man with the knife but not so hard without it. He started to cry after that,” revealed Shane.Shane did suffer cuts and bruises to his knees but apart from that is fine.The Irishman paid tribute to the bravery of the public in helping to assist him in bringing the terrorist under control. “He was just wild when he was running down the street. I suppose like me the adrenalin kicked in and others took after him too.“I’ve no doubt he would have killed others too if he had been allowed to run loose with that knife,” added Shane.The city was sent into lockdown after the attack which has put Sydney on a high state of alert.Shane moved to Australia with his mother and father and the rest of the family in 1988 and have carved out successful lives for themselves there. Shane is a successful carpenter who has worked on a number of high-end projects in Sydney.When his family first moved to Australia they opened up an Irish restaurant known as Mulligans in Chippendale.“We are still very much Buncrana people living in Ireland and we still love Ireland very much,” added Shane.Meanwhile, Australian police say the suspect has no known links to terrorist organisations and that he does have a history of mental illness.Donegal man helps saves lives as he tackles knifeman in Sydney was last modified: August 14th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AustraliaShane Donagheysydneylast_img read more

Timeline Trimming Shortcuts in Premiere Pro

Posted on by

first_imgDiscover how to use the J/K/L keyboard shortcuts in Premiere Pro for trimming in the timeline.  A surefire way to supercharge your video editing workflow.In this post we’ll show you how to speed up your timeline editing in Adobe Premiere Pro by utilizing keyboard shortcuts.Heads and Tails FootageAs with clip trimming in any non-linear video editing application it’s important to have head and tail footage on the clips you use.  This will give you all kinds of options and can save you from problems down the line.What do I mean by head and tail footage? Well, if you look at the picture below…… the red arrows show extra footage in the clip that isn’t being used on the timeline.  So, the footage to the left is ‘head’ footage (i.e. extra unused footage before the ‘in’ point for the clip) and the footage to the right is ‘tail’ footage (i.e. extra unused footage after the ‘out’ point for the clip).If you are ever involved in shooting a production you’ll know that it is always useful to roll the camera for a good 5 to 10 seconds before any ‘action’ takes place…and for 5 – 10 seconds after the ‘action’ has completed.  Doing this will allow you to capture good head and tail footage which can be used for a number of things in post.First, this footage can provide good ambient audio – something that people often fail to realize is important until they need it!  For example, if you wanted to record extra speech after the filming and make it sound like it was recorded at the same time and in the same place it is almost impossible to get it to match unless you have some ambient audio which you can put under the new recording (room tone).Second, head and tail footage gives plenty of room for applying transitions.  If you want a crossfade to work, you need footage to apply the crossfade to.  This cushion is useful for applying many different types of video transitions.Third, and most important for our discussion of trimming shortcuts, having plenty of head and tail footage can allow you to do slip, slide and rolling edits.Timeline Shortcuts in Premiere ProTo get into ‘Trim’ mode, with the sequence panel selected, simply tap the T key and you should see the following changes in the program monitor and on the timeline …Program Monitor In Trim ModeTimeline In Trim Mode With Rolling Edit Tool SelectedWhat you can see in the timeline is the play-head snapping to the nearest edit point and the ‘rolling edit’ tool becoming active. To change to another tool simply hold the shift key and tap T repeatedly and you will cycle through the tools until you come back to the rolling edit tool.Now let’s do some editing.So, L plays forwards, J plays backwards and K stops.  These are the very basic keyboard shortcuts of all video editing apps.As long as you have head and tail footage linked with the clips in your timeline and you are in Trim mode, hit L or J to play to the point where you would like the edit to move to and then tap K and the edit will snap to that point – it’s as simple as that!  And, because we are using the Rolling Edit tool, when it comes to the end of any head or tail footage available, playback will stop.However, if you were using the Ripple Edit tool (Yellow) it would ripple edit as long as you let playback continue and there is head or tail footage.Ripple Edit ToolThe same is true with the Trim Edit (Red bracket) but only to the end of the clip and then playback would stop again.Trim Edit ToolOne last thought – what about slow motion use of JKL?Well, although you can playback in slow motion using the shift + J/L keys, you can’t edit using this function. The nearest you can get to this is moving one frame at a time in either direction.What you need to do when in Trim mode is HOLD the K key and then tap either the J or L keys to trim backwards or forwards. Repeated tapping of the J and L keys will move your edit point forward one frame at a time.Then, to move to the next trim point use the up and down arrows and you’ll move up and down edit points in your timeline.  As you can see, J/K/L shortcuts are not just useful for playback, but also in trimming on the fly in your Premiere Pro project!last_img read more

Trinamool cadres accused of assaulting Opposition candidates

Posted on by

first_imgA day after she was allegedly abducted in broad daylight by Trinamool Congress (TMC) cadres near her home in the Sagardighi block of Murshidabad district, Hasina Begam is yet to get over the trauma. Ever since she filed her nomination as a zilla parishad (district council) candidate of the CPI (M), she was allegedly being threatened by ruling party cadres. Saturday was the last date for withdrawal of nominations for the panchayat polls to be held on May 14.“Police at the behest of TMC leaders arrested my husband from our house,” Ms. Begam told The Hindu. After hearing this news, she was rushing back to her home, when a vehicle stopped beside her and some men allegedly dragged her in. “They were TMC cadres. They took me to the Sub-Divisional Officer’s (SDO) office and forced me to withdraw my nomination. I had no choice as the lives of my family members were at stake,” she said. The family members of another CPI (M) candidate in Sagardighi, Smita Dalui, who was also allegedly abducted by Trinamool cadres from her residence on Saturday, refused to speak fearing repercussions from them. “Kindly spare us and let us live in peace,” said her husband. They are just two among the scores of Opposition party candidates in several districts of Bengal, who were forced to withdraw their nominations for the panchayat polls, following alleged assault and abduction by Trinamool cadres. However, most of these candidates are unwilling to speak to the media fearing repercussions. The CPI (M) district leadership in Murshidabad alleged that 311 candidates in the gram panchayat, panchayat samiti and zilla parishad were forced to withdraw their nominations. In South 24 Paraganas, the party leadership alleged that three of their panchayat samiti candidates in Baruipur’s Ramnagar I panchayat samiti, were abducted and assaulted by Trinamool cadres, who forced them to withdraw nominations. A similar incident took place at Bhangar, where relatives of a CPI (M) zilla parishad candidate were kidnapped by Trinamool workers on Friday, forcing him to withdraw his nomination. “In the Diamond Harbour Lok Sabha seat, there are no Opposition party candidates in 1,000 gram panchayats, 196 panchayat samitis and 20 zilla parishads. This speaks volumes about TMC’s terror tactics,” CPI (M) district secretary in South 24 Paraganas Samik Lahiri said. However, the party leadership was unable to provide any State-wide figure regarding withdrawal of nominations. “We will get the State- wide figure tomorrow [Monday]” CPI(M) State secretariat member Rabin Deb said. State Congress alleged that in the districts of Purba and Paschim Medinipur, South and North 24 Paraganas and Murshidabad, scores of Congress candidates were forced to withdraw nominations due to the terror tactics of the Trinamool. “TMC cadres are making a mockery of democracy in the State. If such a situation continues, the Panchayat polls will be reduced to a farce,” State Congress vice- president Debabrata Basu said. State BJP vice-president Sayantan Basu alleged that about 250 of their candidates were forced to withdraw their nominations following threats from the ruling party. Trinamool reacts Denying the allegations, Trinamool secretary-general and State Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said that “the CPI (M) is making contradictory statements.”“First they alleged that they were not allowed to file nominations, and now they are saying that they are being forced to withdraw nominations. The fact is that the CPI (M) is afraid to take part in the polls and hence is making such baseless allegations,” Mr. Chatterjee told The Hindu.last_img read more
