But that’s never been my thing.”Ozil was unable to either score or have an assist for Germany in his two starts at the World Cup, while Gundogan made just the one substitute appearance in the national side’s only win of the competition against Sweden.last_img read more

Watch out for Borussia Dortmund this season in Europe

first_imgWe take a closer look at the many virtues that this Borussia Dortmund side has this season, they could compete for everything in Europe.The Borussia Dortmund board of directors have been doing things right at least for the last decade, they nearly conquered Europe back in 2013 with the guidance of Jürgen Klopp.They were in a small hiatus for a few years, but this season was key for them to get refreshed by many new talents and many well-established players are also responding very well to the challenge as Borussia Dortmund takes the Bundesliga by storm and does in the same fashion they have always done it historically.This is a squad that stays dynamic during the whole season, they always strive to practice the most offensive football one could ever hope for and they just keep discovering new talents every single year.The Dortmund supporters weren’t ever worried after Ousmane Dembele left to play for Barcelona, because the club’s scouting system is one of the best in the world and they quickly found a replacement who is even better than the Frenchman.We are going to talk about three key players who might transform this Borussia Dortmund side into a serious threat for any Champions League opponent they face this season.#SquadGoals pic.twitter.com/77NFtNAk8o— Borussia Dortmund 🇺🇸🇬🇧 (@BlackYellow) October 6, 2018Marco ReusBorussia Dortmund’s absolute leader, a man who has never left the institution that has always supported him when things got heavy for him.Reus has struggled with nasty injuries in the past, one even made him miss the World Cup in 2014 and prevented him to become a World Cup champion.The winger seems to be living a second youth before he turns 30 and he understands his role as the club’s frontman who should be good enough to take them very far in all competitions this season.He is the perfect role model for the generation of players who are also coming forward this season for the club, Marco Reus deserves to finally get this recognition as the leaders that he is.Paco Alcácer leads the Bundesliga in goals.He’s only played 81 minutes. 😱😱 pic.twitter.com/kOfGA2WHpn— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) October 8, 2018Paco AlcacerWhen Spanish striker Paco Alcacer first arrived in FC Barcelona last season, he suffered from the same problems that other strikers go through when they compete every day against Lionel Messi or Luis Suarez.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The Valencia CF product wasn’t able to keep up with any of both players and decided to leave, he took the offer from Borussia Dortmund and it didn’t really take him a long time to adapt.Today in the Bundesliga, Alcacer is the undisputed top scorer so far in the season and he was exactly the kind of striker that the German club had been craving for such a long time.With already 6 goals in the competition, there is no doubt that Paco Alcacer will finish his season with the highest goal-tally of his career.The #Bundesliga after 7 MatchdaysTop scorer:▪️@paco93alcacer: ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️▪️Minutes played: 8⃣1⃣Most assists:▪️@Sanchooo10: 👟👟👟👟👟👟▪️ Minutes played: 2⃣1⃣4⃣#bvb pic.twitter.com/OlbmdFm0pc— Stefan Buczko (@StefanBuczko) October 6, 2018Jadon SanchoArguably the greatest discovery that Borussia Dortmund has done since Robert Lewandowski first arrived at their doorstep, English lad Jadon Sancho is the biggest sensation in European football right now alongside French wonder kid Kylian Mbappé.The Golden Boy award will be disputed by the PSG star and this young player who already has 7 assists in all competition for Borussia Dortmund, which are more than any other player on the continent.Sancho just was called-up to play for his country in the next international break, it’s a dream come true for a player who is still too young and needs to take his career slowly.There are no guarantees that manager Gareth Southgate will give him the first minutes for England, but traveling with the squad so young is already a great achievement for the kid.Emotional. Inspirational. Unbelievable.Going into international break on a high note 🙌📰 https://t.co/m7qiJAH0Rh pic.twitter.com/dvfHEQE3Mx— Borussia Dortmund 🇺🇸🇬🇧 (@BlackYellow) October 8, 2018Which other players would you add to Borussia Dortmund’s best this season?

Sterling praises Sanchos work ethic

first_imgRaheem Sterling paid tribute to Jadon Sancho’s work ethic and insists he’s unsurprised on how quickly the teenager’s adapted at EnglandThe 18-year-old winger made his international debut for the senior England team in Friday’s goalless draw at Croatia by replacing Sterling for the final 12 minutes.Despite the short amount of time on the pitch, Sancho left observers impressed with his seamlessly transition into the Three Lions squad.But Sterling, who trained alongside the youngster at City before his switch to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, insists that it is of no surprise to him.“He is a really good talent and someone I’ve thought highly of since the first time I saw him at Manchester City when he was training with us in pre-season,” said Sterling, according to the Irish Mirror.“I thought highly of him – his work ethic and what he does with the ball. I know him really well and he’s someone that is really modest but when he’s on the field he wants to express his ability.”Sterling also backed Sancho’s shock decision to leave for Germany last year.“For someone so young to back themselves to go abroad is a credit to them,” he added.“To go abroad so young and back yourself, that shows a lot about the person. He could have taken the easy route and stayed at City but he saw himself developing better.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“That’s what it’s about in football – you have to judge your own situation and he did that perfectly and all credit to him.“He has knuckled down in Germany and, when you’re that age, it’s probably something you need. To have that seclusion and be by yourself a bit and to concentrate solely on football. I’m really happy for him.”After Friday’s match, the England squad had a break at the team hotel with Sterling and Sancho getting involved in a video game showdown between Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.Playing as Juventus, Sancho led the Italian side to a 3-1 win over Sterling’s PSG – which the latter certainly didn’t enjoy come the full-time whistle.We all know that friend 👋😂🤣#Sterling #Sancho #FIFA #FIFA19[🎥IG/sanchooo104] pic.twitter.com/eraKZXU4WY— Xtra Minute (@XtraminuteTV) October 14, 2018last_img read more

Former Arsenal legend talks about Bob Wilson

Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“In training, he would do exercises where you would have to make two or three worldie saves, ones that really turn a game or are really special.”“But what he used to do is, if you made one of those worldie saves in the first two or three minutes, he’d say ‘Right, out,’ and you’d go out of that session feeling so full of confidence because you’d make this great save,” he added.“That was a specialty of Bob’s because you could make that worldie and then the next ball that comes in you could mess it up and as a goalkeeper you will remember the one that you’ve messed up and that would get you down, but Bob knew ‘Right, you’ve made a great save, out you go,’ and you’d keep that confidence.”last_img read more

House Subcommittee Holds Hearing on Water Resources Development Programs

first_imgOn February 24th, the House Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee on Water Resources held a hearing to review the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) efforts on water resources development projects and the reports that go with them. The USACE is criticized for lengthy processes and projects, including taking decades to complete preliminary feasibility studies.  The USACE defended its record, citing successful projects following Hurricane Katrina and arguing that there are conditions and requirements involved in USACE projects that do not exist for other agencies or businesses.The USACE was question about its Fiscal Year 2017 budget request, which did not include funding for several projects that are already underway.  The USACE indicated that activity would not halt completely on the projects, but they would see minimal work.  The USACE indicated that the projects do not meet the minimum benefit-to-cost ratio that allows construction to continue. For every dollar spent, the project must generate $2.50.The ASA continues to support and advocate for increased funding for the USACE for construction and operations & maintenance activities to improve performance and efficiency of the locks and dams on the inland waterways system and progress toward major renovation or the construction of new locks and dams on the Upper Mississippi River System.  Record increases in appropriations have been achieved in the past two years, following the successful enactment of the Water Resources Reform & Development Act of 2014 and an increase in the barge fuel fee that funds the Inland Waterways Trust Fund.last_img read more

Pit bull named Bo may spur change in BG law

first_imgBattle Ground resident Anita Gayheart’s five-minute plea to the city council started simply enough.“I’m here to talk about Bo,” she said matter-of-factly.Gayheart went on to tell the seven members of the Battle Ground City Council about the 5-year-old pit bull.Gayheart had passed by Bo nearly every day for two years. The dark-colored pit bull would run around the fenced backyard and come to the edge of the fence wagging his tail whenever Gayheart walked past, she said. Then one day in late spring, Bo was tied up near the back of the house, she said. Gayheart claims ever since then, she and other neighbors have seen Bo tethered for days on end, sometimes without fresh water or food. She says he’s never given room to exercise. Bo’s owner denies the claims.“It just got to be so awful to see this,” Gayheart said.So Gayheart researched the city’s animal cruelty laws and contacted the Battle Ground Police Department. A code enforcement officer checked on Bo, and called Gayheart to tell her there was nothing he could do. Bo had food, water and shelter and the length of the tether met city code requirements.After hearing the unsettling news, Gayheart made her plea to the city council at its August meeting. Gayheart urged the city council to adopt Clark County’s animal cruelty code, and at the following meeting, Councilwoman Lisa Walters asked city staff to research the issue. On Monday night, the council directed the city staff to draft an ordinance to revise the code.The city’s current code requires tethers to be at least three times the length of the animal, measured from the tip of the nose to the base of its tail. The city’s code also prohibits tethering animals in ways that prevent them from reaching food and water and restrict freedom of movement necessary when tethered for extended periods of time.last_img read more

Former drug house rehabilitated

Unfortunately for some Clark County landlords, drug suspects can end up renting houses and leaving a legal and physical mess behind after an arrest.Georgia Ketchmark, whose family rents out four properties around the county, recently discovered one of her houses was searched as part of a drug investigation led by the Camas Police Department.
