Press Association Manager Remi Garde said the 20-year-old was “not professional” after he was pictured partying last weekend after Villa’s 4-0 Barclays Premier League defeat to Everton. Grealish has since been training with the Villa under-21 side and will continue to do so, Garde said at a Thursday morning press conference. Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish will be left out of the squad for Saturday’s match against Watford as punishment for his off-field behaviour. Garde’s predecessor, Tim Sherwood, warned Grealish about his behaviour after the Tenerife incident telling him that he had to ”knuckle down”, while Garde had already said he felt the winger was not playing at the level he should be. Grealish has struggled for form this season with Villa bottom of the Premier League heading into Saturday’s home game against Watford at Villa Park. Grealish has scored just one goal this season, in the 3-2 defeat at Leicester on September 13, and he has not completed the full 90 minutes of any game since the 2-0 lost at Chelsea on October 17. “He won’t be included in the squad for Watford,” said Garde. “(His actions) are not of the professional standard that I expect from my players. That is why Jack is training in the under-21 team.” ”Sometimes, players in every country ask to stay in the city where we are playing. It is not a problem for me, it can happen once or twice during a season. ”The problem for me was not him not being on the bus. ”He is not playing at the weekend and at this stage, I think that is enough. ”Jack has got a lot of ability but he needs to improve his game and work at it.” This is not the first time that Grealish has breached club discipline. The youngster was pictured earlier this year laid on his back in the street during a holiday in Tenerife, for which he was reprimanded by Aston Villa. He has also been pictured partying in Marbella and seen inhaling nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas or ‘hippy crack’, from a balloon in a photograph taken last year.
Trump said pro forma sessions are a scam and a dereliction of duty. (Washington, DC) — We are four months away from the 2020 Presidential election and the current president still has not gotten more than one hundred appointments past Congress. Many of whom are instrumental in helping the country handle the COVID-19 outbreak.Yesterday, President Trump said he has the authority to force Congress to adjourn so he can make the crucial appointments. In a White House briefing, Trump urged the Senate to stop gaveling-in pro-forma sessions when lawmakers aren’t in town. That would allow him to make recess appointments without those officials being approved by the Senate. Trump railed against the “partisan” obstructionism he said had held up 129 appointments who could all be helping in the coronavirus response.“It’s always roadblocks or a waste of time,” he said. “If the House will not agree to that adjournment, I will exercise my constitutional authority to adjourn both chambers of Congress.”“The current practice of leaving town while conducting phony pro forma sessions is a dereliction of duty that the American people cannot afford during this crisis,” he said.“It is a scam what they do,” Trump said.Pres. Trump threatens to adjourn both chambers of Congress so he can make appointments to fill vacant positions and judicial slots.“If they don’t act on getting these people approved,” Trump says, he will have to do something “that I prefer not doing.” https://t.co/KXv4M8zNFm pic.twitter.com/M9IJLoCzI9— ABC News (@ABC) April 15, 2020
Brentford 0 Tranmere 2Having made such an encouraging start to the season, Brentford were brought down to earth by a surprise home defeat.Uwe Rosler’s side had much of the possession, but Tranmere took their chances and condemned the German to his first loss at Griffin Park, with goals from Robbie Weir and Andy Robinson.AdChoices广告Weir struck first, heading home the impressive Robinson’s 29th-minute cross.Rovers’ lead was preserved when goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams denied Clayton Donaldson after a mistake by defender Mark McChrystal had left the Bees striker through on goal.Gary Alexander came desperately close to equalising with a volley that struck the bar, and had that gone in Brentford may well have gone on to win the game.But they were unable to find that all-important goal and were hit with a sucker punch when Robinson’s superb 25-yarder flew past keeper Richard Lee.It was a killer blow for Brentford, who were thwarted again by a late double-save from Fon Williams, who did brilliantly to stop Donaldson’s shot and then kept out Alexander’s follow-up.

Before we get into the real business of the column today, I figured I would make a few comments on the Super Bowl. I was working and had no real burning desire to watch the game. But since it was on in the office, I monitored it somewhat.First, I watched just about every commercial during the third quarter because some chump was supposedly going to propose to his wife during one of them. Never happened. Even more disappointing were the commercials themselves. From all accounts, they stunk this year. Companies ran spots that had been out for a couple months, and there were not any real innovative ones that really stood out.Second, Rex Grossman sucks. I tried to think of a gentler way to put it, but there really is none. Personally, I would have voted “Sexy Rexy” Super Bowl MVP for what he did to help the Colts win. But that is neither here nor there. On a scale of one to 10, how much do Bears fans wish they had a more accomplished quarterback like, say, Brett Favre starting for them? Probably about 3,837 or more, but while we’re here…There are three different types of good news. There is the type that elicits a smile when you hear it, like “Congratulations, you got an A on the paper.” Then there is the good news that deserves a high five with a friend: “We just won the basketball ticket lottery.” The third variety of good news prompts Tiger Woods-esque fist-pumping response, seemingly forgetting you are in public as you nearly skip all the way down Charter Street.Not surprisingly, this sort of good news is always unexpected and doesn’t come around too often.Last Friday, like many of you, I received some certifiable Stage-Three good news.Answering the phone having just left class, I heard my roommate John, “Coming back for his 17th season, Brett Favre.”There may very well never have been eight words that I have been happier to hear.Brett coming back instantly improved the Packers’ chances of being a playoff contending team next season, given they have any sort of productive offseason. General manager Ted Thompson has more salary cap space than most teams in the league and also the 16th overall pick in the draft. Rumors circulating that Randy Moss may be on the move to Green Bay — as good or bad as you believe such a move to be — are a sign this will not be a quiet offseason in Titletown.Aside from offseason acquisitions, the Packers are without a doubt a better team with him under center than if Aaron Rodgers was. The offensive line improved as last season went on, as did the defense.Undoubtedly there are some — my colleague Mr. McGrath, Bears and Vikings fans, and people who enjoy kicking kittens, to name a few — for whom the announcement was not welcome. Those types of people are cynical of his return, saying Brett’s just doing it for fame or fortune.While he will make a boatload of money (an estimated $11 million) and set many records (keep in mind not all of which will be positive, as Favre is only four interceptions away from setting that all-time mark), I firmly believe neither of those reasons are what convinced him to come back. Call me naive (as many people probably will), but I really believe all Brett cares about is going out there, playing football and having fun. Watch him play 230-some odd times and tell me otherwise.Which brings us to the consecutive games streak. For those sports fans who live under a rock, Brett has started 238 consecutive games dating back to 1992. That streak is at the core of the bond fans feel toward Favre. The bond that outside observers find difficult to understand. How fans’ feelings toward him ebb and flow with every throw, yet still always feel so attached to a football player who — at this point in his career — is not as good as he once was. After all, he is just a football player, right?Not as far as I am concerned.Maybe my cousin — who by her own admission follows football about as closely as I follow opera — explained it best.”It’s almost like he’s a part of the family,” she said. “He was that one family member who was never able to make it to the family functions, but he was always a part of them because everyone still talked about him.”As lame and ridiculous as that sounds, it is true. And I don’t think my family and I are the only ones with that sort of experience.Chew on this: Brett has started every game for the Packers since I was five. Out of all those games (237 in the regular season) I may have missed a handful or so. Packer fans of my age and I grew up with Brett as he grew off the field from a crazy young kid to a graying father. He still tends to play like a big kid, which is part of what endears him to fans. I have seen Brett play more often than I have my own brother, as sad as that may sound. In that sense he has been something of a long-lost relative.But it is not the streak alone that endears Brett to Packer fans. Moreover it is the fact that he is a real, genuine person. In an era of sports where athletes try to hide as much of their private lives as possible from the public, Brett’s has, for the most part, unfolded before the state of Wisconsin.Some critics bring up Favre’s previous addiction to painkillers as some sort of slam against him, as proof he is not a good person. In reality, almost everyone knows someone who has battled an addiction of some sort. But Brett stood up and admitted his fault like a man, admitted he had a problem before an entire state. He cleaned up his life for the betterment of his own family and his career.Then, in 2003, Brett played his signature game, the game by which I will forever remember him. Playing the day after his father died, Brett played a magical game, throwing for 300 yards and completing every pass he threw in the first half on Monday Night Football against Oakland. The nation saw a vulnerable iron man. And what I will always remember most about that game is that I watched it with my own dad.Over the next few years, Brett has suffered through a myriad of other personal hardships. His wife, Deanna, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. His brother-in-law was killed in an ATV accident that same year. His Mississippi home was damaged during Hurricane Katrina.All those events with which people can identify, all those events make him human in ways most athletes aren’t. Over the years, Packers’ fans have seen enough of those moments to make Brett seem like part of the family.That’s why there will always be a seat for him at my family’s big kid table.Ben is a sophomore majoring in Political Science and Journalism.

On the men’s side, the team accumulated 97 points, again finishing third behind Cornell (246) and Buffalo (109). While there were personal victories for various Orange athletes, the day was characterized by Cornell’s dominance and Buffalo’s steady performance, two programs Syracuse frequently runs against.These results hardly bothered Syracuse at the time, and bother it even less now. The team will travel to the annual Upstate Challenge in Ithaca, N.Y., this Saturday, and runners and coaches alike are seeing the meet as an early season tune-up — and not much else.“This is really just a feeler out, almost like a preseason meet,” said SU head coach Chris Fox. “This isn’t a fast track so we’re not going to worry about speed. We’ll just give some young people the chance to get some experience before we go to Penn State.”Next weekend, the team will travel to University Park, Pa., for the Penn State National Open. Even with the Upstate Challenge in the schedule before then, runners have started to prepare for the Penn State National Open, and are looking at this weekend’s meet as an extension of their weekly practice schedule.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You never want to look past a race,” said sophomore distance runner Andrew Bennison. “But this meet is very low-key, probably the most low-key of our indoor season.As a freshman last season, Bennison’s first indoor race of his collegiate career was at the Upstate Challenge, and while he does think of the meet fondly, he has no concrete goals going into it this time around.Graduate student Lauren Penney finished first in the women’s mile last weekend at the Gotham Cup. This weekend, she will rest her legs for Penn State like many of her older teammates, but she’s excited to see what the rest of the team can accomplish.“Team placing is not so much important in track, but I think some individuals can have some really good races this weekend.” Penney said. “We have a lot of runners who could do really well and it will be exciting to see them in their first races.” Comments
The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team overcame a horrendous night of free throw shooting to pull away from the Ohio State Buckeyes Thursday night in a 79-68 victory.The win was the Badgers’ (14-9, 6-4 Big Ten) fifth in a row, as the team continues to recover from a slow start to conference play. This one didn’t come easy, but to start, it looked like it might.Wisconsin jumped out to an early 11-0 lead on the back of Vitto Brown, who scored seven of the Badgers’ first 11 points. But faster than you could say JaQuan Lyle, that lead was gone, as the freshman not only brought the Buckeyes (14-10, 6-5) back into the game, but carried them throughout the remainder of the half, scoring 18 of the team’s 32 points in the first 20 minutes. Lyle finished the game with a game-high 27 points.“We talk a lot about not giving a team or individual confidence, and right off the bat, we let [Lyle] come off the first ball screen and go right to the rim,” head coach Greg Gard said. “Good players do that. They feed off that when you get a couple easy ones.”Despite Lyle’s first-half onslaught, Wisconsin managed to keep their lead thanks to their three-point shooting, as Ohio State made it a point to lock down the lane defensively, packing the paint anytime forwards Nigel Hayes or Ethan Happ received the ball in post position.Ohio state head coach Thad Matta said this was the game plan from the start.“We wanted to give as much support as we could down low,” Matta said. “Not doubling, but we weren’t as quick as we needed to be to get back and we didn’t help the helper.”The Badgers took advantage of the shots they were given and managed to shoot fairly effectively from behind the arc, hitting 7-of-18 shots in the first half, with two coming from each point guard in Bronson Koenig and Jordan Hill.Hayes, on the other hand, had a quiet and frustrating first half, as he constantly settled for outside jumpers instead of attacking the paint and shooting just 1-of-7 for three points in the first 20 minutes.Hayes came out slow again to start the second half, missing his first two shots from the field, but then, all of a sudden, something clicked for the junior.With just over 14 minutes remaining in the second half, the Badgers held a seven-point lead, allowing the Buckeyes to hang around. Hayes — 1-for-9 from the field at this point — stepped up and confidently hit a three to push the team’s lead to 10.From there it was all Hayes, as he went on to score 11 of the team’s next 13 points over the next five minutes of play and scored 18 of his team-high 21 points in the second half.“When we need a bucket, I have to be able to produce that for us,” Hayes said. “I’m not the only one, but I guess I’ll take [being] the lead singer in our rock band.”For the rest of the team, they continued their sharp shooting from downtown, as they finished shooting 13-of-27 from downtown — and embraced a bend but don’t break mentality.Even though the Buckyes came storming back to bring what was a 12-point lead down to just two with about four minutes remaining, Wisconsin then kicked into high gear, ending the game on a 14-5 run.In the end, Wisconsin’s daggers came at the hands of guard Jordan Hill and forward Brown, as Hill hit a long three with the shot clock winding down and Brown hit a jumper from the elbow that put UW up seven with 56 seconds remaining.The Buckeyes never recovered.“I’m extremely proud of our guys and how they continue to battle and find a way,” Gard said. “It’s coming from different people in different fashions.”The victory brings the Badgers to a tie with Michigan State for sixth in the Big Ten. They are three games out of first place and just one game out of fourth place.Stats courtesy of UW-Athletics
German born Ghanaian Karim Bellarabi has been invited by Brazil 2014 winning German coach Joachim Loew for the upcoming European Championship qualifying matches against Poland and Ireland.The Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder was born in Berlin but was also eligible to play for Ghana and Morocco because his father is a Ghanaian and his mother a Moroccan.Efforts by the Ghana FA to lure the youngster proved futile over the years and if he gets to play any of the lineup matches he then cements his nationality as a German.Bellarabi is enjoying a breakthrough season and Loew says he is an “excellent option for our attack.”Defender Mats Hummels returns, along with 15 other players who won the World Cup title in Brazil.Bastian Schweinsteiger, Sami Khedira, Benedikt Hoewedes, Marco Reus and Mario Gomez are all out with injuries and Kevin Grosskreutz was dropped. Max Kruse of Borussia Moenchengladbach returns to join Bayern Munich’s Mario Goetze as one of the two strikers nominated.Germany plays in Warsaw on Oct. 11 and hosts Ireland three days later in Gelsenkirchen.Germany squad to face Poland on October 11 and Republic of Ireland on October 14:Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover)Defenders: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Erik Durm (Borussia Dortmund), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Dortmund), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Shkodran Mustafi (Valencia), Antonio Rudiger (Stuttgart), Sebastian Rudy (Hoffenheim) Midfielders: Karim Bellarabi (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Schalke), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Christoph Kramer (Borussia Monchengladbach), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal), Lukas Podolski (Arsenal), Andre Schurrle (Chelsea)Forwards: Mario Gotze (Bayern Munich), Max Kruse (Borussia Monchengladbach)
Oh, it’s a different franchise. The seats are all sold. The old reptilian owner is gone, with no more mentions of V. Stiviano, and the new over-caffeinated owner is discussing a new arena.A quarter-century of pantomime was replaced by six years of winning, peaking with Paul’s Game 7 shot that eliminated San Antonio in the first round in 2015. The Clippers spent all those years amusing their fans with Cubs-caliber incompetence. With Paul, they just broke hearts. They did so again when they dealt Paul to Houston on Wednesday. They received a first-round pick in 2018 and a Kellogg’s Variety Pack of bodies.Some will be helpful. Patrick Beverley, with Paul a first-team All-Defense guard, will become the most popular player on the club. He plays for keeps.Sam Dekker, at 6-foot-8, returns to the Staples Center floor where he shot Arizona out of the West Regional final, while he played for Wisconsin. He might become the small forward the Clippers have craved. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error But a trade is defined by who gets the best player, and the Clippers would never get equal value for Paul, not at 32. They couldn’t give him a max contract that would take him into obsolescence. All this is a pretext for future moves: keeping Blake Griffin, gathering up enough coupons to get someone like Paul George. And then, of course, trying to become the next team of LeBron James’ lifelong dreams.Michael Eaves, who traveled with the Clippers while at Fox Sports and now works for ESPN, said this trade went far beyond economics. Paul was miffed at Coach Doc Rivers, Eaves reported, because he felt Doc was giving preferential treatment to his son Austin, who defers to nobody.Eaves said Paul was incensed when Doc Rivers, who has (or had) total control over Clippers’ personnel, nixed a trade that would have brought the Knicks’ Camelo Anthony west and sent Austin Rivers east.Eaves also said Paul is following a scenario that will unite him with James and send them together somewhere in 2018-19, in the manner of Garnett-Pierce-Allen to the Celtics in 2008.And you thought you could only mix and match teams on Playstation.Paul has a drill sergeant’s reputation on the court and in practice. But Griffin has had chances to leave and didn’t, and DeAndre Jordan re-signed with the Clippers, after some heavy drama. Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson were demanding, too. Certainly the Clippers weren’t having as much fun as the Warriors, but who did?In the traditional sense Paul is the best two-way point guard in the league, even now. How he and Harden split the load in Houston will be Mike D’Antoni’s job. Harden got jobbed out of the MVP for the second time in three years. He didn’t quite average a triple-double, but he took Houston to the No. 3 seed in the West, and he made Eric Gordon the Sixth Man of the Year and he pumped up Clint Capela’s stat line. He was also far more efficient than Russell Westbrook, and he did all that as the point guard. That’s the only position Paul knows.With Paul, the Clippers played .658 basketball for six seasons. But they won only three playoff series and never reached a conference final. They had every chance in 2014 and 2015, throwing away a last-minute Game 5 lead in Oklahoma City that would have given them a 3-2 series edge, absolutely disappearing in a Game 6 loss at home to Houston.The fates gave the Clippers those two chances and then went back to stealing their identity. Paul and Griffin got hurt in the first round in 2016, Griffin got hurt in the first round this year.The Clippers rampaged through the league last November, as the ball moved freely without Paul’s constant custody. Then it went south, as it always did.It was fun and it was loud, but it wasn’t long enough to be an era, and it wasn’t rich enough to be a run. Chris Paul’s arrival left the Clippers unfulfilled and the Lakers unrecognizable. Those two wrongs didn’t make a right. They shouldn’t have had Chris Paul in the first place.On Wednesday the Clippers donated him to Houston, their trophy case remarkably undisturbed.You know how NBA players say “the ball don’t lie” when the guy they didn’t really foul misses a foul shot. It’s an expression popularized by Rasheed Wallace, among others. Well, in this case, the trade didn’t lie.Former commissioner David Stern dismantled the Lakers when he didn’t allow them to take Paul from New Orleans, on the vague premise of “basketball reasons.” The Clippers got CP3 but never took advantage, thanks to basketball reasons, too.
Unless you have an infallible tactic, it is very likely that organizing the closet and keeping it in order will be an impossible mission. The way clothes are distributed is defined based on the space we have, the size of the wardrobe and the lifestyle we lead. However, these ten ways can be applied to any closet.When we organize the closet we make everything easier to find. This way you will always know where your favorite sweater is, the jeans that fit you best or the clothes to go to work. And when you have a special event to attend, you can quickly locate what you need.How are we going to achieve such an ideal organization? If you work through these steps, you will be able to master the order of your closet:1. Separate clothes from hanging from folding clothes. This simple ploy will help you see how much space you have to rearrange the closet and where to place the clothes.2. Bet on simplicity. One of the best tricks to gain space inside the closet is to place the most common things in an accessible and accessible place, and those that you do not normally use, store them in a more hidden place. Tidy closet. Image: Pixabay All depending on the space, the size of the wardrobe and your lifestyleWork through these steps to master the order of your closet 3. Take advantage of other furniture in the room. You can gain space inside your closet by combining it with a symphonier or a dresser. Not only will this offer you extra volume, but you can store the unused clothes in the drawers and occupy the closet with the daily clothes.4. Multipurpose hangers. These types of products have the ability to hang several hangers. Made of metal, wood or plastic, multipurpose hangers allow you to organize clothes vertically and allow you to save storage space in the closet.5. Use soda sheets on wooden hangers. To know how to organize the interior of a closet you have to know some tricks. If you have soda plates and do not know what to do with them, you can place them on the hooks of the hangers to place another. 6. Less hanging clothes. Hang only the clothes that need to be hung, such as delicate shirts, jackets or pants. 7. Store clothes in suitcases. No need to spend an eye on organizers and boxes, take away space and money. A suitcase, in addition to serving to store a smaller one, can be used to put seasonal clothes, comforters or sheets inside it. 8. Store the accessories behind the door. With hooks, bars or ropes it is possible to fix pins behind the doors. This trick is ideal for easier access to accessories, such as pieces of jewelry, scarves or handbags.9. Order your shoes in the lower part of the closet. If you needed to find solutions to store your shoes, it may be enough to install bars in the lower part of the closet. Place them so that the shoes do not fall and you will have space to place many pairs.10. Don’t waste the top of the closet. A simple way to maximize the space of your closet is to store your luggage or boxes on top of the closet. In this way you will always know where the bedding, comforters or seasonal clothes are placed.
