It’s a mouth-watering fixture for both sets of fans and the Robins faithful have also been called on to raise the decibels at the Cardiff City Stadium.The City boss is no stranger to the tie: he played against them a number of times as a player, scoring against the Bluebirds on New Year’s Day in 2011 and he’s managed four City matches against them – Sunday will be his fifth – since hanging up his boots.Johnson told BCTV: “It’s been a fantastic season for them, there’s no doubting that. Neil (Warnock) has gone there after they were relegation fodder at one point. He’s turned them into genuine promotion candidates.”We know it will be a good, tough derby, it will be an aggressive game too. We won’t have as many fans down there as we would have liked so there’s even more emphasis on our fans making the noise to help the boys on the pitch.”I think they will be very functional, organised and they have a lot of physical players in their team. They make you defend all over the pitch.”
Lee Johnson chats to BCTV after his side’s 2-2 draw with Barnsley.
Pro-Boxing BY KEVIN TEME Current Oceania welterweight champion John ‘The Stopper’ Korake tells his Australian opponent Jordan Samardali not to announce himself as the prince who has taken over the king’s crown in professional boxing. Korake was responding to remarks made by Samardali in the media stating that he had now taken over the reign from the king of Oceania boxing. The Australian beat the PNG champion in unanimous decision at the Oceania Fight Promotion professional boxing tournament in Port Moresby that ended on Sunday. Prime Minister James Marape, who is also responsible for Sports, was one of the guests at the event. Other guests at the event on the night were Philippines Ambassador Bienvenido Tejano and several government ministers to witness the showdown between PNG, Australia, North Korea and the Philippines. In what is expected to be a rivalry between Australia’s former silver medalists at the Commonwealth Games, Jordan Samardali and PNG’s very own John Korake, a rematch is now called for the eight round by two minute bout in the international catch-weight division (82kg). After beating Korake, Samardali said: “The prince takes the crown and the king must now give way for the prince to have his rightful place in the chair of the king. “Wait Prince Jordan Samardali! This isn’t a title fight and besides, I am still the Oceania king. Bring on the rematch and will show you how the King rules in the World of boxing,” John ‘the Stopper’ Korake said. Korake said he is willing to put his Oceania welterweight title belt on offer for the rematch with Samardali. “I would have knocked him earlier but he bounced away every time I got close to him. So you see, he uses this amateur type of point-scoring opportunity and won by the judge’s decision but a loss is a loss. Samardali must know that this isn’t a title fight however it’s an eye opener for me as I have learnt a lot from this fight,” Korake said. He said the real test will come for a rematch and that’s when you will see the real king of the ring. “So my word to Australia’s Prince Samardali is that the King is not leaving his throne and if the Prince Samardali wants to get my crown, he must fight hard and fight like a man instead of bouncing away every time to win on points scoring technique,” Korake said. Meanwhile, Fight Promotion Company managing director Maryanne Millie said: “Certainly, there will be a rematch. One is between PNG’s own champion Kauko Junior Raka and Philippines champion Alan Vallespin in the International lightweight 61.23kg bout. “For Raka Junior’s rematch, it will be held in Philippines while Korake and Samardali’s rematch will be announced at a later date of its venue.” Millie thanked the sponsors that supported the event as well as the Prime Minister James Marape and his government ministers who were present for the event.

Tom Rosenthal – the son of former Liverpool and Tottenham forward Ronnie Rosenthal – has also been offered a new contract.So too has goalkeeper Conor Hudnott, who was previously on Chelsea’s books.Six players from the Under-18s – Brandon Adams, Jeremy Arthur, Ruudi Clarke, Gianni Crichlow, Dan Darbyshire and Jack Williams – have been offered third-year scholarships.
Back in 2018, we covered an article in L’Equipe explaining that Brighton & Hove Albion had made a move for a young midfielder in Ligue 1. His name was Ibrahim Sangaré, who plays for Toulouse, and it was claimed the Seagulls had gone as far as making a €12m offer for the now 22-year-old.Fast forward a year and a half later, the defensive midfielder is still at the French club, although that isn’t expected to continue beyond next summer.Toulouse are currently rock bottom of Ligue 1 and strong favourites to get relegated, and with Sangaré’s contract expiring in 2021, a sale is likely to happen while his stock is still high.Embed from Getty ImagesAccording to SportMania.ci, Everton and Marseille are reportedly interested, but it’s what snuck in right at the end of the article that caught our eye.The website write that ‘Brighton, also interested by the Ivory Coast international (U23), have already offered Toulouse €20m’.That’s quite an increase on the €12m from nearly two years ago, and while it isn’t explained when said bid was made, the wording suggests it’s still on the table.It will now be up to Olivier Sadran, the French club’s president, to decide what to do in the summer, but if Brighton have indeed put that amount in for the young midfielder, then that should set the bar for other clubs who want to follow.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

Pierre Gasley; photo: Red Bull Content PoolRed Bull has not discussed the return of Pierre Gasley as a starter in the team from Milton Keynes, said Helmut Marco. Similar speculations have emerged in recent weeks due to Alex Albon’s poor performance on the track and intensified after the French driver won the Italian Grand Prix. (An analysis of Albon ‘s problems can be found in the new issue of ClubS1 – 240.)After the race on the track, Monza Gasley was asked if he would like to go to Red Bull and if he felt ready for such a change. Years ago, he was returned to Toro Rosso (now Alpha Tauri) by the big team.“I think I’m ready, but as I mentioned before, it’s not up to me. All I did when I returned to Toro Rosso was focus on myself and demonstrate what I could do. “It’s not something I want to think about right now, it’s just to enjoy my first Formula One victory,” said Gasley.Subsequently, the question was asked to the adviser of Red Bull.“His return to Red Bull is not currently being discussed. Gasley is one of the Red Bull drivers who is currently competing for the Alpha Tauri and is doing a great job. “Alpha Tauri also needs a leader,” said MarcoBoth the Austrian and Red Bull boss in Formula 1 Christian Horner have expressed support for Albon in recent weeks.“Alex’s feedback is actually very good. His work ethic, too. At the moment, our car is very difficult to drive, especially with little fuel. This exaggerates the difference between our two pilots. Obviously, as a racing pace, Alex is a lot closer, and he did some great racing this year. You should not forget that he does not have a year and a half of experience in Formula 1 behind him. That’s why I’m sure there will still be good performances, “Horner explained in an interview with racefans.net.If you find a spelling mistake, please let us know by highlighting the text and clicking Ctrl+Enter

Last Updated: 11th June, 2020 04:34 IST Golf Passes Initial Test With No Positive Results From Virus Very little about the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial resembles the opening round of The Players Championship on March 12, the last professional golf played before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down golf and most everything else. First Published: 11th June, 2020 04:34 IST SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News FOLLOW US COMMENT WATCH US LIVE LIVE TV The PGA Tour is not simply picking up where it left off.Very little about the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial resembles the opening round of The Players Championship on March 12, the last professional golf played before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down golf and most everything else.Players return to a new set of rules, starting with mandatory tests for the coronavirus when they first arrive and having their temperatures taken before they can get to the parking lot.On the course, players are to make every effort to practice social distancing and “show best practices for playing golf to our fans watching the telecast.”Good thing Wednesday’s activity wasn’t shown on TV.Players and caddies exchanged clubs (players are supposed to handle the clubs themselves). Caddies were not wiping down the flagsticks or bunker rakes after use. Social distancing felt more like a guideline.It was just like normal in a return that is supposed to be anything but that.“It’s going to be very easy to fall back into old habits because it’s just what we’ve done,” Rory McIlroy said Wednesday. “I’d say for the viewing public just to give the players and caddies a little bit of leeway if they see something on TV that isn’t quite right. We’re having to figure it out as we go along, as well.”Players and caddies were among the essential personnel who were tested for the virus when they arrived, and Commissioner Jay Monahan said no one has tested positive.Of equal concern is what they do off the golf course, even with a designated hotel. Some are staying in houses. Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Jason Dufner have their own chef.The most obvious difference is no spectators on the course, making Colonial look like it does for the members except for ropes lining the fairway to give carts and mowers some guidance on where to drive.Another difference is likely to be the number of people watching from home.Golf is only the second major sport to return in the U.S. (motor sports are back in action), and a field featuring McIlroy, Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka is appealing.There also is the underlying responsibility to show that returning at this time was the right move, and that golf can live up to its reputation as one of the safer sports.“I think this week is very important because golf will be the center of the sports world, which it usually a few weeks a year is,” McIlroy said. “But for people to have something to watch on TV where they actually don’t know the outcome I think is going to be nice for them. So I think that’ll be a good thing.“And I think it’s an important week because golf can show that we can play in a socially distant manner,” he said. “We can conduct a tournament and adhere to all the safety protocols that have been put in place.”Koepka made no apologies for working with caddie Ricky Elliott the way he always does, mainly because his caddie is staying with him this week and both have been tested.“You look at any other sport. I’m pretty sure LeBron James isn’t going to worry about setting a pick. Football, you’re not going to worry about tackling a guy because of social distancing,” Koepka said.But he recognized the importance of getting through this week without incident, so that golf can continue until just short of Christmas.“I think it’s important to make sure that we go through all these things because I want to play,” Koepka said. “I know everybody out here wants to play, I know the fans want to see us play, so we’ve got to take all those protocols seriously if we really want to be out here for the rest of the year.”And then there’s the matter of birdies and bogeys.McIlroy and Thomas are among those who have never played Colonial. Rahm has a mathematical chance of replacing McIlroy at No. 1 in the world. Koepka hasn’t been the same since his knee injury late last year, and he believes the break did him a world of good. Jordan Spieth can only hope the same holds true for him.All are eager to return, even in silence.Rickie Fowler hit a wedge to 4 feet on the seventh hole during a practice round and a passerby called out: “Good shot. That will be the extent of feedback for the week.”Elite players hardly ever go this long without serious competition except for when injured, and while many have been playing at home in Florida or Texas or Arizona, it’s close to impossible to replicate the real thing.It will be real on Thursday, even without fans, even if it doesn’t look just like it did in March.

TM and © 2017 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation(LOS ANGELES) — 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Logan, Hugh Jackman’s superhero swan song as the X-Man also known as Wolverine, and it seems to reflect Deadpool‘s R-rated influence.The movie takes place after the other installments in the X-Men franchise, with both Logan and Patrick Stewart’s character Professor Xavier mere shells of their formerly-powerful mutant selves, in hiding near the Mexican border. According to a synopsis tweeted by Jackman himself, “Logan’s attempt to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”The young mutant is a girl named Laura, whose youth is a stark contrast to the fact she shares many of Logan’s powers, like an unbreakable adamantium skeleton and razor sharp claws. The “dark forces” are apparently The Reavers, a group of mutant hunters led by a cyborg played by Narcos‘ Boyd Holbrook.In the snippet, set to Kaleo’s “Way Down We Go,” we see Laura shoplifting at a gas station convenience store, until a clerk makes the mistake of scolding her for it. We then learn the little girl — also known as X-23 — also inherited Logan’s temper, flipping the poor guy and almost running him through until Logan stops her.The heroes on the run exist in a world where the exploits of the mutants have been immortalized in comics, but as Logan explains — and the trailer demonstrates with R-rated levels of violence — that “in the real world, people die.”Two versions of the trailer exist, one of which also makes use of the more adult rating’s freedom from language restrictions. Even Professor X drops an F-bomb in the uncensored version tweeted by Fox Thursday morning.The movie, from Oscar winner James Mangold, who directed The Wolverine, opens February 3.

Monkey Business Images/iStock/Thinkstock(NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.) — Thursday got off to a great start for some students in North Charleston, South Carolina, who each received new wheels just in time for summer.A little before 9 a.m., about 550 students at Pepperhill Elementary School received brand-new bikes — all thanks to first-grade teacher Katie Blomquist.In September 2016, right after Labor Day, Blomquist started a campaign on GoFundMe in hopes of raising $65,000 for the bicycles. She said today that she’d initially come up with the idea to start the campaign for a student who wanted a bike that she couldn’t afford.“This is a chance for them to truly own something of value.”From there, she said, the idea blossomed. In the summer, she decided that she’d get every child at Pepperhill a bicycle by Christmas.“I had no idea what I was getting into,” she said. “And it became a thousand times more amazing than I ever dreamed. I didn’t really think about how much would go into it. I just thought, ‘Let me see if I can do this’ … I wanted to make family memories.”She raised more than $80,000 in less than three months. She said more than 1,000 people gave to the campaign.“It just took off,” she said. “When I say community, that started as just Charleston, then grew to our country as a community. One person from France and one person from Australia also donated … It’s just amazing!”She teamed up with a local bike shop called Affordabike that worked with her for seven months, designing the bike, picking out colors and settling on a name: “The future, let’s go places.”She said it look a little longer than planned to get the bikes delivered but today the students got their new wheels. They also received helmets. Affordabike treated each student with matching bike locks. The school will reportedly get bike racks to handle all the new rides.Pepperhill Elementary, a Title 1 school, receives extra federal funding for its students, many of whom come from low-income families.“It’s a very late Christmas gift, early summer gift now,” Blomquist said. “This is a chance for them to truly own something of value. It’s a sense of therapy … It’s exercise. It’s a way of getting to school … But the number-one thing is it’s joy … Every single child deserves that.”Blomquist said she and her roommate, a third grade teacher at the school, would also receive a bike.“It just shows you that there is still kindness out there,” she said about the support she’d received from the community. “It was actual people who gave actual, hard-earned money to [the students] to spread some joy … I hope that they take that feeling and they then, in turn, give back one day.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
