Hero Caribbean Premier League 2018With both teams oozing confidence ahead of today’s deciding matchup, captains of the final two teams in the Hero Caribbean Premier League 2018, Chris Green and Dwayne Bravo, have declared their sides ready, roaring and rearing for the thrilling encounter this evening.“From our side of things we’re really excited! We also come in with a bit of momentum at the back end as well. We’re all really looking forward to the clash,” Guyana Amazon Warriors captain, Chris Green, has stated.Trinbago Knight Riders’ captain, Dwayne Bravo, had this to say: “I think only the two best teams remain, and the fans are going to get a very good cricket game. For us, there’s nothing about preparation. We played last night (Friday) and it was a good win, so we just want to take that momentum into the game tomorrow (today).”The Brian Lara Cricket Stadium pitch, where the drama will play out, has a surface very similar to the one at Providence in Guyana, but it has proven to be a bit slow to start. However, both captains are positive that their players would be able to manage both batting and bowling there.“It’s nothing that the local players are not accustomed to! So I think the wicket tomorrow is going to be similar, slowish but a good one,” DJ Bravo has stated.“Even the international players have played the best part of 10 or 11 games here in the CPL, and know what each game’s conditions are going to hold for them. We just have to adapt to that on the night,” Chris Green’s declared.On the topic of final eleven and injured players, Dwayne Bravo told media operatives that he is unsure about Sunil Narine’s condition, his having played their qualifier match against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots with an injured shoulder.“To play a game and bowl the way he did on a very bad shoulder shows his class and the commitment he has for the team. We have a very good medical team, the doctor and the physio are going to do everything in their powers to make sure he’s up and ready to go,” Bravo declared.The Warriors’ camp has been without medium-pacer Keemo Paul, who is recovering from an injury. Warriors’ captain shared, “I’m pretty sure that we have a fully fit squad. I think they’re still sweaty on the fitness of Keemo. But other than that, no injury clouds for me as yet; so that’s great.”The highly anticipated clash will bowl off at 17hrs today, and by the look of things, both teams are gunning for the new trophy.“To have the opportunity to defend our trophy is a great result for us despite how the game goes tomorrow,” DJ Bravo has said.“Everyone back home in Guyana has been really supportive throughout the tournament, and we know how much our success means to them. If all goes well and our way, then we get to hold the trophy up at the end of the night,” Chris Green has stated in optimism.
Nearly 60 percent of Valley residents still fall within the middle class, defined as households earning $35,000 to $150,000. And most are non-Hispanic white homeowners with families. But the new face of the Valley is marbled with changing demographics that have created pockets of disparity among neighboring communities. Harris’ Tarzana-Encino neighborhood has emerged as one of the Valley’s relatively affluent communities. The Harris household’s annual income of $125,000 is just a bit above the $112,000 average for his community. In a neighborhood where half of all households still bring in less than $70,000 a year, that puts the Harris family in the upper tier. Harris is a non-Hispanic white – like 75.6 percent of the residents in his community. He also owns his own home, as do 62.2 percent of his neighbors. For more than four decades, San Fernando Valley native Bill Harris has watched the allure of the American dream reshape the fabric of the region. The 45-year-old accountant, who commutes between his Encino home and an office in mid-Wilshire, has seen a tide of diversity create increasingly unique economic and cultural pockets. For Harris, this evolving “richness” is what he relishes about his neighborhood. “It’s even different from Calabasas, which is a more homogenous community,” he said. Harris epitomizes the demographic picture of his neighborhood that has emerged in a new snapshot of the region released today by the San Fernando Valley Economic Research Center. While long seen as a bastion of middle-class suburban families, the Valley portrayed in the new report is a tapestry of widely diverse communities. With three kids – they attend public school in Sherman Oaks and Bel-Air – the Harris household is larger than the average household of 2.44 people. Harris went to Birmingham High School, lived in Reseda and Van Nuys after he married, and now lives “south of the Boulevard,” a phrase that embodies the fulfillment of the American dream. Harris says he’s happy in the Valley and enjoys friends of different ethnicities, cultures and sexual orientations – many developed through his kids’ activities in softball and soccer leagues at Balboa Park. While Harris said he sees some “downside” to diversity when it manifests in gang violence or other problems, he says for the most part it’s a positive for his family and the Valley’s economic and cultural life. “There’s a place for laborers, whether it be craftsmen working construction, or manufacturing,” he said. “Everyone can’t be an accountant or a lawyer or a stockbroker – and conversely, not everyone can be a craftsman, a plumber or an electrician. So the diversity is good for the economy.” And Harris said his children have benefited from exposure to all kinds of people and the relative economic equity. The difference may boil down, he said, to some extras: trips to the theater, or dues to attend a temple. “But I don’t think my kids do a lot of things that other kids aren’t able to,” Harris said. “My oldest daughter has a cell phone; most kids she knows have a cell phone. We have Internet; they have Internet.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3731 Tarzana-Encino Median household income: $69,575 Percent of people below poverty level: 7.3% Percent of renters: 37.8% Average household size: 2.44 Hispanic: 11% Non-Hispanic white: 75.6% Asian: 8.3%160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will make his first appearance at Old Trafford in a pre-season friendly against Valencia on August 12.Van Gaal’s role as Holland coach will end after Saturday’s third-place play-off against Brazil at the World Cup and he will then turn his attention to making the Red Devils competitive again after last season’s seventh-placed finish – a dismal season which cost David Moyes his job.The Valencia friendly is also likely to feature new signings Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw playing at their new home for the first time.“This event marks the start of the next chapter at Old Trafford. With a new manager and new players making their first appearances in front of a home crowd,” said group managing director Richard Arnold. 1 New Man United boss Louis van Gaal
Stoke City chairman Peter Coates has told talkSPORT reports of the formation of a new European Super League should not be taken seriously.Claims in The Sun on Wednesday suggested representatives from the Premier League’s five biggest clubs met with American billionaire Stephen Ross in London to discuss the potential of a new inter-Europe competition.Manchester United’s Ed Woodward, Liverpool’s Ian Ayre, Chelsea’s Bruce Buck, Manchester City’s Ferran Soriano and Arsenal’s Ivan Gazidis were all pictured leaving the capital’s Dorchester Hotel on Tuesday, with all the men shaking hands before they departed back to their respective clubs.The plans from Ross, the owner of the Miami Dolphins, are seen as the biggest threat to English football since the 1992 Premier League breakaway, while it could also spell the end for the Champions League, with Europe’s elite clubs all competing week in, week out. But Coates believes the story is nothing but rumour, with the Stoke chairman telling talkSPORT it is hard to believe with the Premier League about to enter the most financially prosperous period of its history.In an exclusive interview with the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, he said: “I think it’s just somebody flying a kite, a bit of speculation. I find it difficult to take it seriously.“I don’t know what they were meeting about, it could have been for all sorts of things, but one thing I don’t think it would have been about a break-up. saying that, I have no idea why they would exclude current leaders Leicester or Tottenham – it seems to be race between them for the title this season.“It’s just hard to believe the story. The new Premier League TV deal comes into force next season, so that’s a huge amount of extra revenue for everyone and it’s hard to work out why anyone would want to change that. I just don’t take it seriously.“The Premier League doesn’t show signings of bursting, it’s obviously a product that works well. We’ve got a very good system and the clubs all work well together, we’ve got something that is exceptionally good and the demonstration of that is the kind of international following it has around the world. When you talk about 2.4 billion viewers a week in 900million homes, it’s pretty impressive stuff.“It would have ramifications throughout Europe wouldn’t it? This thing has been around in the past and it raises its head now and again for whatever reason.“The other leagues are, understandably, very envious of the Premier league because of its revenues. Spain have two dominant clubs, Germany really only have one and it’s similar in Italy – it doesn’t work very well for them.“Paris Saint-Germain have a 25 point lead in France. What kind of competition is that?“I just wouldn’t give it any credence. I know nothing of it and we’ve had no discussions amongst the clubs along these lines, so I would dismiss it.”Asked if he was contact to be a part of the meeting, the Stoke chief added: “I haven’t had a call, no, but I’d like them to ring me. Maybe next time.” 1 Stoke chairman Peter Coates is against any talk of a potential European Super League
Arsenal fans are still waiting for Arsene Wenger to signal a message of intent in the transfer window.The Frenchman may have lured midfielder Granit Xhaka to the Emirates, but that remains his solitary marquee signing.That may not be enough if the Gunners are to challenge for the Premier League title.And with Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista suffering injuries during pre-season, Wenger’s defence is in trouble ahead of the league’s kick off this weekend.So who should Arsenal be looking to sign this summer?With this question in mind, talkSPORT has taken a look at 10 of the north London outfit’s reported targets and ranked those listed, from who shouldn’t be a priority for Wenger to who should.Check out the 10 by viewing the slideshow above. 10 10 10 9. Isco (attacking midfielder) – Few doubt the quality of Isco, but despite his talent, it’s difficult to see who he could replace at Arsenal. 3. Julian Draxler (winger) – This is perhaps a deal Wenger should have sealed earlier in the window. With Alexis Sanchez and Draxler on opposite flanks, Arsenal would have one of the best attacks in the Premier League. 10. Javier Hernandez (striker) – to see the full ranking of Arsenal’s top 10 targets, from worst to first, click the arrow above, right – A striker may be a priority for Wenger, but the Frenchman should be looking for a player of much higher quality than Hernandez. 10 10 10 10 10 10 5. Alvaro Morata (striker) – It looks likely that Morata will remain at Real Madrid, but Arsenal could be wise to test the Spanish outfit’s resolve. He would be viewed as an upgrade to Giroud and would certainly offer an alternative option going forward. 8. Mauro Icardi (striker) – Icardi is often linked with a move away from Inter and may be assessing his future in the wake of Roberto Mancini’s sacking. He is quicker than Olivier Giroud, but wouldn’t be a major upgrade. 4. Lukas Klostermann (centre back) – Arsenal need a centre back (or two). Klostermann, who is with Germany for the Rio 2016 Olympics, is reportedly on the Gunners radar. The 20-year-old could be a gamble well worth taking. 10 6. Riyad Mahrez (forward) – Mahrez was outstanding last season for Leicester City and is a rumoured target for Arsenal. He would certainly strengthen the Gunners, but with so many attackers at his disposal, his signing wouldn’t be necessary for Wenger. 7. Jonny Evans (centre back) – An experienced centre back is exactly what Arsenal need. Evans is far from an exciting option, but he won’t cost too much and could be a wise short-term fix. 2. Alexandre Lacazette (striker) – While a centre back is a priority, a striker should also be. Lacazette is reportedly eager to move to north London, making it all the more frustrating at the stubborn Wenger not coughing up the cash. If Arsenal dont land the Frenchman this summer, fans should be furious with their club. 1. Shkodran Mustafi (centre back) – Mustafi fits the profile of what’s needed at Arsenal. Good in the air and adept in possession, Wenger should be looking to bring the Germany international to the Emirates this summer.

Ryan McGarvey brought down Alex Carolan inside the box, but Gareth Doherty’s resulting spotkick was saved by Gareth Wade in the Bonagee goal.Harps had efforts late in the first period through Aaron McCready and Declan Sharkey, but neither efforts troubled the home goalkeeper too much.Bonagee doubled their advantage in the 75th minute when Aidan McLaughlin drew a mistake from Tommy Lee McCarron in the Harps goal and the Bonagee number 9 had the easiest task of rolling the ball into the empty net.Harps response was positive and they halved the deficit in the 85th minute when, following a punch clear by Wade, Declan Sharkey sidefooted home from twelve yards to make it 2-1.The men from Ballybofey almost got the equaliser just at the death, when Sharkey somehow managed to put a header wide, after a cross from Paul Ferry. Best for Bonagee were Aidan McCauley and Crisco, while Ciaran Kelly and Sharkey starred for the newcomers.Bonagee United: Wade, Doherty, Breslin, Russell, McGarvey, Lynagh, O’Doherty, McCauley, McLaughlin, Crisco, McCroary.Finn Harps Reserves: McCarron, Ferry, Ellison, Kelly, Doherty, McCready, Carolan, G Doherty, McCroary, Sharkey, FinnCockhill Celtic 2 Letterkenny Rovers 2COCKHILL CELTIC twice came from behind to draw with Letterkenny Rovers at the Charlie O’Donnell Sports Grounds.Goals by Steve Okakpu-Emeka and Igor Arriel had Letterkenny ahead, but Cockhill levelled twice through Peter Doherty and Ronan Doherty.Cockhill went close early on when Peter Doherty headed over from Gerry Gill’s corner.On 19 minutes, a Paul McDermott cross was flicked on by James Bradley to Derek Doherty, whose volley clipped the bar on the way over.Letterkenny took the lead on 21 minutess when Kevin McGrath’s shot hit the post and was bundled home from close range by Okakpu-Emeka.Cockhill replied with William O’Connor’s ball being controlled by Gerard McLaughlin into the path of Ronan Doherty who shot narrowly wide.Cockhill equalised just before half-time when Peter Doherty advanced from defence before firing past Kelly from 30 yards.The second half started with Cockhill dominating possession but Letterkenny looked dangerous on the break.They regained the lead on 56 minutes when a long ball released Arriel who, despite McLaughlin getting a touch, found the net from 15 yards.They had a big chance to win the game on the hour when Paul McVeigh broke clear of the Cockhill defence but his shot was saved by McLaughlin.A minute later, Cockhill were level.After inter-play between Bradley and Gill, Ronan Doherty curled the ball home from the edge of the box.Both teams had chances to win the game in the end-to-end finish to the match.
