Caulker ‘excited’ to join Saints

first_imgSteven Caulker has told Southampton’s website he did not hesitate to join the club when the opportunity arose.Caulker has been handed the chance to stay in the Premier League after moving from QPR on a season-long loan.Southampton have paid a £1.5m loan fee for the 23-year-old centre-back, who moved to west London from Cardiff City a year ago.QPR director of football Les Ferdinand recently dismissed an approach from West Brom for Caulker but agreed to let him join the Saints.“I’m very pleased. This club’s done fantastically well, especially over the last two years,” Caulker said.“To now join this club and be a part of it for this year is something I’m very proud of. I’m very excited.“As soon as I got the phone call from Les Ferdinand to say a fee had been agreed with Southampton I was delighted to get the opportunity to come and play here.”Caulker also believes Southampton’s style of play under boss Ronald Koeman will suit his game.He said: “They play fantastic football – it’s a style I was quite used to at Swansea.“It’s an attractive style and one I feel comfortable playing in.

If everyone thinks that every team in the Premier League is going to play the beautiful game, at the moment there is only one winner and that is Manchester City.“If we are all going to roll it out from the back and play 600 passes, they win… end of story!“You have to find a way and that’s what we’ve done consistently well here; find a way to be successful.“We’ve had to fight, we’ve had to work, we’ve played some good, productive stuff at times, and always found a way.“That doesn’t change because when you play these powerful clubs, it’s very difficult.“It’s reality tactics, rather than negative tactics, and we’ve tinkered with the side many times before.” last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say ​Klopp bemused over Liverpool fitness questionsby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is not impressed by questions about his side’s fitness.Some pundits questioned whether the Reds had the physical conditioning to keep up with the Italian side.They looked out thought and out fought in a 2-0 loss in the group stages of the Champions League on Tuesday night.When asked about fitness, Klopp said the following to the club’s official website: “There was no physical problem apart from the normal physical problems in a game like this, which is very intense [because] both teams fight hard and all that stuff. It’s not a physical problem tonight.”We have to finish the situations off. How everybody is in life, you need positive moments and you can run forever. “We didn’t have really positive moments tonight. They obviously got the second air, so they could go again. That’s normal, but that was not the reason.” last_img read more

15 hours agoChelsea hero Nevin tells Lampard: Don’t spend big after transfer ban

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Chelsea hero Nevin tells Lampard: Don’t spend big after transfer banby Freddie Taylor15 hours agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea hero Pat Nevin has urged the club not to spend big after their transfer ban concludes.The Blues are currently a six-match winning run thanks in large part to their flourishing contingent of academy graduates.Those youngsters have benefitted from Chelsea’s inability to buy any players until next summer, and Nevin thinks the club must resist ruining their development.He wrote on the club’s website: “Our young side have just deservedly beaten Ajax, the best young side in Europe, at their own ground and it was no fluke, Chelsea were the better team.”If we do the double over them on 5 November, does that then make us the best young side in Europe? If it does, then should Frank take a chance on ruining that progress with a bunch of new signings?”Why for example would you even consider buying, say, another centre-forward when Tammy Abraham has been superb and is absolutely definitely going to get even better? Well there could be a dip in form or an injury, or indeed he might just need a rest at some point.”We have got other strikers already on the roster. Michy’s goals-to-minutes-played figures are off the scale again this season for club and country, but what club or indeed manager would turn down a world-class player if he suddenly became available?”I hadn’t considered it at all this season, because with Chelsea lying fourth in the Premier League, who cares about next season right at this moment? Well the club has to, Frank has to and doing things at the last moment on a whim is generally not considered the best way to bring long-term success to any club. So forward planning is a given.”I suspect there will be a bit of a war chest available to Frank by the summertime, but unlike other clubs around us, such as Manchester United and maybe even Spurs, it doesn’t look like a whole new outfit is needed, just a few little jewels added to make the whole thing sparkle even more.”I wouldn’t be surprised however if the club takes precisely the opposite approach to previous seasons when these acquisitions are considered.”During the ‘Roman era’, how many world-class strikers of a certain age have come to the Bridge with, it has to be a said, varying levels of success? I almost can’t imagine Frank doing that, but I can imagine the scouts being sent out around the planet to find the next hot young thing who would fit into, or more likely grow into, this group and this system.” last_img read more

Rosie HuntingtonWhiteley Visits Cambodia For UNICEF

first_imgModel, actress and UNICEF UK supporter, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, posted photos on Instagram of her journey to Cambodia’s capital yesterday to make an appeal film to be broadcast on ITV’s Soccer Aid on Sunday 8th June.Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Visits CambodiaRosie travelled with UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation, to meet children living in overcrowded slum villages around the capital, Phnom Penh, who are struggling against poverty, hunger and disease.“I’ve been so inspired by the children I’ve met on my first day in Cambodia, despite the conditions they live in,” said Rosie.“It was heartbreaking to meet a mum whose baby daughter died from diarrhoea when she was just six months old because of the sewage and dirty conditions. When children get ill here, they don’t always have access to medicine or clean water to be able to get better.”“I was shocked to learn that around 50 children under the age of five die every day in Cambodia from diseases that can be easily prevented, like diarrhoea. Yet it costs so little to help save a child’s life. That’s why I’m supporting UNICEF’s vital work through Soccer Aid, and you can too. Buy a ticket to the match at Old Trafford on Sunday 8th June to be a part of Soccer Aid and help UNICEF change children’s lives all over the world.”Soccer Aid will be taking place on Sunday 8th June at Manchester’s legendary Old Trafford stadium and will broadcast live on ITV. Two star-studded squads of football legends and the world’s biggest stars will compete in an electrifying football match all in aid of UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation.Tickets are now on sale for Soccer Aid 2014, visit manutd.com/socceraid or call 0845 456 2014 (calls to this number will be charged at local rates).

Three housing projects in Delhi get clearance trees to be translocated

first_imgNew Delhi: A government-appointed expert panel has recommended for environmental clearance to three redevelopment projects in South Delhi, which have been lurking over the proposal to fell a large number of trees, after they were revised to translocate trees instead of cutting them.The expert appraisal committee (EAC) of the ministry of environment, forests and climate change (MOEFCC) has cleared the revised housing projects in Sarojini Nagar, Netaji Nagar and Kasturba Nagar colonies. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarAccording to the revised plans of these colonies, trees will be translocated/ transplanted instead of being cut, which the environmentalists feel will be a “failure”. In Sarojini Nagar, out of 11,913 trees, 3,500 trees will be translocated and the rest will be retained at the project site. In Netaji Nagar, of the 3,906 proposed trees to be felled, 1,600 are to be translocated and the rest retained. In Kasturba Nagar, 405 will be translocated, and 798 retained, as per the EAC meeting minutes. Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in DwarkaThe EAC noted that due to petitions in the Delhi High Court and NGT against redevelopment of seven GPRA (General Pool Residential Accommodation) colonies over felling of trees, including the three colonies which have now been cleared, there was a status quo on these projects since July 2018. “During deliberations, the EAC noted that as per the environmental clearance granted vide dated June 12, 2018, initial activities were taken up but due to writ petitions /PIL filed in the Delhi High Court and National Green Tribunal (NGT) against felling of trees, the High Court had ordered to maintain status quo in redevelopment of all seven GPRA Colonies including Sarojini Nagar on July 2, 2018 and July 26, 2018,” the EAC’s minutes of meeting said. Environment activists, however, said that redevelopment was necessary but translocation was a risky approach. “Redevelopment is needed in Delhi. Translocation is a good move but it has to be carried out cautiously as most of the times it is not successful,” said Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) Chandra Bhushan. He added that while granting clearance for such projects, number of trees to be cut should be reduced and planting of more number of trees must be ensured. “They should reduce the number of trees being cut and keep in mind how will they ensure that the new construction has more number of trees,” Bhushan, deputy director of CSE, said. Speaking on similar lines, lawyer and environment activist Vikrant Tongad said translocation of trees was a “failure” because the weather and soil of the national capital was not supportive of this method. “Translocation of trees is a failure in Delhi. It is rarely successful. An expert agency has to be hired for it. But the government has no policy in place. “Delhi’s weather and soil are not supportive of translocation. Delhi has no space for compensatory plantation,” Tongad said. Another activist was of the view that responsibility has to be fixed while translocating trees. “Condition regarding translocation is a welcome step but authorities must fix responsibility of the builder to ensure that all translocated trees sustain,” he said.last_img read more
