Semi Ajayi’s Club Faced With Potential Financial Blow

first_imgThe English Premier League’s decision to charge newly promoted clubs £8m each next season and in 2021-22 has left promotion hopefuls in the Championship scratching their heads.The decision according to the Premier League is to help soften the blow of broadcast revenues lost because of the Covid-19 crisis.The Premier League has been forced to offer a £330m rebate to broadcasters because of the temporary suspension of the current season due to the Covid-19 crisis.To offset this, the Premier League says newly promoted clubs will be expected to shoulder the costs over the next two seasons.Promoted clubs won’t exactly pay £8m but will have that sum deducted from their revenues for being in the topflight.As things stand, the decision will affect Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi’s club West Bromwich Albion who along with Leeds United occupy the two automatic promotion spots.Several Championship clubs have criticised the move, arguing that the topflight should be providing more financial help to clubs in the Football League rather than reducing their income.Promotion from the Championship is currently thought to be worth around £180m to the three clubs that come up each year.Premier League clubs are expected to suffer a total loss of £700m as a result of the pandemic when losses to matchday revenue and commercial income are added to the rebate to broadcast partners.RelatedSemi Ajayi Suffers Devastating BlowJuly 17, 2020In “England”Wolves Sign Duo On Permanent DealsJuly 1, 2018In “England”English Premier League Confirms Six Positive Coronavirus TestsMay 19, 2020In “England”last_img read more

Mavericks Barbers – Thinking about giving a beard a go?

first_imgNew year, new beard? Here, the men’s hair gurus at Mavericks Barbershop Letterkenny share their six best tips on how to grow great facial hair the right way:Don’t touch it.Growing a solid beard takes at least a month. While we want you looking your best at all times it is highly recommended that you hold off any heavy-duty shaping or trimming for at least a month. Doing this you allow your beard to be fuller and get an idea of what kind of shapes your beard lends itself to, also what may have been a light patch in the beginning could now be completely blended in with the rest of the beard. The dreaded itch.The beard may start to itch in the first few days or not until week three, but rest assured it will happen. At this point it is time to grow a pair and tolerate it, as I can assure you, it will pass. The itch is due to the sharp edges of your stubble which is strong hair that curls back and pokes you in the skin. There are a few trade secrets to get through this, none better than Prorasso Beard Balm which moisturises and softens the hair. Using a beard balm will make this phase a stroll in the park. The psychological.If you are new to the beard-growing process you’ll find the most challenging part being how to handle other people’s reactions, going for a different look will without doubt get comments from others. However, trust us when we say, the vast majority of the time the beard doesn’t look bad at all, you’re just getting comments because it is different!Look after it.When growing a beard, you will find the hair very strong and stubborn. Also what most men don’t realise is that the skin underneath begins to get very dry. A good quality beard oil will solve both these issues. A very small amount (5 drops) massaged in daily will be all the care your skin and beard needs with a simple comb in the right direction, it will be at its best.Shaping.Once you feel you have gone beyond the length you were aiming for, you can now trim it back into the shape you desire. Careful, this is where we lose most beards. Trimming the beard into a perfect shape on your first attempt is a delicate task. If you feel confident go for it, if not, a trip to your barbers is a must (as long as you are sure they’re capable of delivering your request). Enjoy.After that enjoy your new look, it may make you more handsome, rugged, distinguished, mature or care free. Whatever it is, be happy with yourself and enjoy the fact that you tried something different and a new experience.  I can assure you, the process will develop you to become more open minded towards other, more patient and more confident. Enjoy.For any advice on beards, the barbers in Mavericks or only too delighted to help, we would talk beard all day, call in and we will help you any way we can.

first_imgEquinox Ranch announces that volunteers from Team Rubicon, a national veterans’ service organization that uses the skills of veterans for disaster relief and community service projects, will be at Equinox Ranch on Saturday, July 1, and Sunday, July 2, to begin the demolition phase of a major remodeling project.  Once the renovation is completed, Equinox Ranch will offer treatment to help combat veterans suffering from PTSD rebuild their lives.“We’re so excited to be welcoming Team Rubicon this weekend and begin the demolition phase of our remodeling,” said Margo Capparelli, Ph.D., the founder of Equinox Ranch.  “We’re lucky to have such a dedicated group helping us fix up this amazing property along the river.  Before we can help rebuild the lives of combat veterans, we need to rebuild and adapt the main building at Equinox Ranch. That’s where Team Rubicon comes in.”“This weekend is about heroes helping heroes,” she said.  The main building which sits on 23 acres on the Tuckasegee River was built by Cotton Robinson, a former chancellor of Western Carolina University. While structurally sound, it has fallen into disrepair.  The demolition phase will be followed by renovations and repairs, making the facility accessible to veterans with disabilities.People in the local community who want to volunteer with Team Rubicon on its Equinox Ranch service project should contact Katherine Burton at [email protected] for more information.  “We are lucky to have the support of so many people in the community and at Western Carolina University,” Capparelli added.Equinox Ranch is a nonprofit program created by professionals who have served in the armed forces, business, and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.  It will offer a longer and more comprehensive program than anything already in existence, according to Capparelli.“Our mission is to awaken the mind, body and spirit of warriors whose traumatic memories and attempts at repressing them have left them emotionally numb,” she said.  “We will help veterans build the skills they need to re-adjust to the civilian world.  They will have time to study, rest, talk, think and heal and the support of other veterans.”Treatment will include verbal therapies (one on one and group support) and activities such as music, gardening, exercise and sports, all blended with the natural beauty and calming influence of the natural landscape and the comradery of fellow veterans.  Veterans will begin and end their yearlong program with a two-week stay at Equinox Ranch, with support during the year from the Veterans Administration and civilian care.Team Rubicon is a national organization that uses the skills of veterans for disaster relief and community service projects.  Founded in 2010 by two Marines to provide disaster relief after the Haiti earthquake, Team Rubicon has grown to include thousands of volunteers and has deployed on over 100 operations around the world and here at home.  The group performs community service projects between disaster relief operations.For more information about Equinox Ranch or to make a tax-deductible donation, visit read more

10 months agoChelsea striker Morata lacks confidence – Zola

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Chelsea striker Morata lacks confidence – Zolaby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea assistant Gianfranco Zola believes Alvaro Morata is lacking confidence.The Spaniard has scored just five goals this season and has been linked with an exit this month.But Zola has assured fans that the goals “will come” from Morata.”Mainly it’s confidence. I’ve been a striker myself and when you get into these loops where you’re looking for the goal all the time and it doesn’t come, you lose confidence. “The less confidence you get the less you’re going to score. It’s one of those things that happens frequently with all players.”Alvaro has to understand for us it’s important when he scores, but also when he comes and plays and does all the things important for the club. The goal has to be only a consequence of what you do for the team. The way we play always helps the front players to score. But, you have to keep working for the team to participate to the process. The goal will come.” last_img read more

Napoli eyeing Ancelotti

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti would reportedly be considered as a solid option for Napoli if Maurizio Sarri departs from the team this summer.Ancelotti is in the crosshairs of quite a few Premier League clubs as there are many who are experiencing issues with their current coaches and such that already know they have no managers for the next season.Chelsea’s Conte has been having problems with decisions, taken by higher management, Arsenal’s Wenger officially announced his departure from the club despite spending 22 years there and even the Spurs as Pochettino seems unable to bring out the best from the players.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.Ancelotti, however, is being targeted by Napoli as he has been a free agent ever since being fired by Bayern Munich. He turned down the Italy job with the main motive that he is looking to work at club level, according to Football Italia.Considering this, Napoli might indeed be a perfect fit for him and the other way around – he is an experienced coach, who might lead them to a Scudetto win, which has not happened since the 90s, and they are an Italian team – he would not even have to change the country.last_img read more
