Powered by Firework VAR hasn’t been the most affable topic for footballers. Since its approval and implementation from the last FIFA World Cup, several players, managers, pundits and fans have taken a firm stand against it, as its becoming a subject of controversy regarding goals and referral decisions. However, Ruben Aguilar just went physical on it.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/Twitter(@GFFN)The Ligue 1 fixture at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard saw a 1-0 victory for the hosts, as the game’s lone goalscorer Denis Bouanga was charged by Aguilar, and the decisive video assistance got the 26 year old marching orders from referee Jérôme Brisard, to the utter surprise and angst of the Frenchman, taking it out on a monitor and hasting down the tunnel.Check out a clip of a fuming Aguilar coming down the field and kicking a VAR screen by the sideline, courtesy to Get French Football News’s Twitter.Advertisement Les Monégasques gaffer Leonardo Jardim opened up to reporters in the post match interview.“It is a balanced match, so, who has given the victory? The referee, of course… It is incredible, despite all the mechanisms in place in France,” the 45 year old Portuguese spoke to Canal+.“Anyone on TV could have seen that. 99 per cent of people think the same thing and nobody among the people whose job this is says anything.” he added.Thanks to Bouanga’s 59th minute score, Les Verts are now 8th in the league table with18 points, as Monaco are trailing behind 3 points but down in 15th.

But has the Egyptian transformed into a true Scouser yet? the women under-9 seek the answer!Advertisement Image Courtesy: liverpoolfc.comThe young kids from the Liverpool FC Women gathered with the 27 year old forward in an episode of the club’s kids programme ‘Kop Kids’, where Salah was asked random questions by the girls. Check out the video below, uploaded on YouTube by the club’s official account.Advertisement Salah, who is the father of a 5 year old daughter named Makka, easily got along with the kids, performing FortNite dance moves and discussing his ratings in FIFA 20. One girl eagerly taught the Egypt international a number of Scouse words, the dialect of Liverpool, and Salah was very nuch into it: “So now I have to improve my English and and improve another language here.”Salah arrived at Anfield from AS Roma in 2017 for a fee of €42 million, and transformed himself into the Red hitman the English top flight football knows him as of today. He contributed to the scoresheet as Klopp’s boys thrashed Manchester City 3-1 last Sunday.Advertisement Currently out on international duty, Salah will start against Comoros in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match next Monday.  Advertisementlast_img read more

LaLiga Santander co-leaders Barcelona and Madrid back in action along with Valencia city derby

Powered by Firework LaLiga co-leaders Barcelona and Real Madrid headline another round of intriguing fixtures including Valencia city derby and relegation six pointer at Butarque.Advertisement  Third-placed Sevilla remain right in a historically tight title race with Basque side Athletic Club and Real Sociedad also showing championship form through recent weeks, while this weekend’s games should also help clarify the situation towards the bottom as we move towards the winter break.Advertisement  The action begins with Villarreal hosting Atletico de Madrid and both teams looking for a lift after disappointing defeats last weekend. This has traditionally been a tricky fixture for Diego Simeone’s men, with two draws and two Villarreal wins over the last four seasons.Advertisement  Saturday’s action begins as Real Madrid host RCD Espanyol with the two teams currently in very contrasting form. Los Blancos’ current LaLiga topscorer Karim Benzema has six goals in his last six games against Los Periquitos, including a superbly taken double last January. Granada’s form has faded recently after their fine start and they now sit 10th, with equal number of wins as defeats [six] and goals scored and conceded [20]. Saturday’s visitors to Los Carmenes are D. Alaves, whose strike pair Lucas Perez and Joselu are both in excellent form. Saturday’s city derby between Levante and Valencia should be a cracker, with the teams currently separated by just three points and three places in the LaLiga table. Los Granotas are strong at home with four wins and just one loss in seven outings, while Los Che are formidable on the road, so a match in the spirit of last season’s entertaining 2-2 draw looks a distinct possibility. Newly crowned Ballon d’Or 2019 winner Lionel Messi will lead Barcelona out at the Camp Nou against RCD Mallorca, having either scored or assisted 10 of his team’s last 13 LaLiga goals. The Balearic Islanders have yet to pick up a point away in 2019/20 but did pick up a creditable 1-1 in this fixture in 2010 when Messi also scored. Sunday features Eibar team looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone after three straight defeats hosting a Getafe side dreaming of Champions League qualification after 11 points from their last five games. In even better form are Athletic Club who have taken 13 from the last 15 points available to climb to fourth in LaLiga, ahead of their trip to Real Betis where Los Verdiblancos have been specialising in grabbing late winners in recent weeks. Real Valladolid have slipped downwards while not scoring across their last three LaLiga fixtures, and now host Real Sociedad who have found the net in all but one of their 15 games so far. History suggests the points might be shared however following four consecutive draws in this fixture. Leganes at home to RC Celta is a huge game at the bottom of the table. Both teams have improved recently under new coaches Javier Aguirre (Leganes) and Oscar Garcia (Celta), but still remain in the drop zone with just one win each across their last six LaLiga outings. The final game sees Osasuna back at El Sadar where their historic 31 game unbeaten run ended a fortnight ago, with the visitors being a Sevilla team who remain right in the title race having a LaLiga-high 16 points already away from home this season. Watch LaLiga Santander this weekend live on Facebook Watch.

Burglar of Exclusive Homes Gets 5-Year Prison Term

first_imgBy John Burton FREEHOLD – The Beachwood man who admitted to breaking into a series of homes on Middletown’s Navesink River Road, including rock star Jon Bon Jovi’s, and stealing hundreds of thousands dollars worth of items, was sentenced to five years in state prison.Nicholas Tracy, 22, was sentenced on Oct. 12 in Superior Court for the three burglaries in the exclusive neighborhood in 2011 on March 14, April 1 and April 3, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.During each burglary, Tracy had made his way into the homes, stealing more than $300,000 worth of personal items, mostly jewelry, according to a statement released by Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J.

Two Jammed Sycamore Ave. Intersections Discussed

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |TINTON FALLS – About 150 residents turned out for an information session on how the county proposes to improve two intersections on Sycamore Avenue, one at Hance and the other, 500 feet away, at Hope Road.Some residents were shocked to see possible solutions that weaved through the backyards of properties along Sycamore Avenue, or in another case, directly through an existing house at 325 Hance Ave.“The study and models show that there will be a reduction in traffic and accidents, but there will be impacts to certain properties, and in some cases significant impacts,” said senior engineer Ronald Lotrecchio of Stantec Consulting Services Inc. (SCS), who presented concept plans with Monmouth County Dept. of Engineering at the Borough Council meeting Tuesday, May 1. “But these are just schematics. They’re not construction plans.”Residents expressed their displeasure, saying they feared their property values and quality of life could be significantly impacted by the plansSCS has deemed the intersections, both “T” intersections, to be “severe crash problems” at peak congestion hours of 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and 5 to 6 p.m.The first of two “feasible concepts” calls for an extension of Hope Road, which currently ends northbound at Sycamore Avenue, an option that offers vehicles traveling south on Hance Avenue an egress directly onto Hope Road before approaching the more dangerous left turn at the Sycamore Avenue intersection.Although the schematic does show the Hope Road extension routed directly through a resident’s living room, Lotrecchio said the alignments can be adjusted to the north or south of the property if the concept is adopted.Monmouth County engineer Joseph Ettore said that regardless of what concept is selected, addressing the safety issues of these intersections is long overdue.“To say that this is not a problem, I can’t say that I agree with that thought,” Ettore said. “We’ve been at this for 10-plus years and we’re back here because we don’t think we can continue to ignore it. And quite frankly I think we’ve ignored it too long. To say the crash rate and injury rate are not severe, that’s not what the data shows.”Lotrecchio and his team – which included associate traffic engineer Matthew Maher – presented a recent four-year history of crashes at the intersections and reported more than 20 injuries from numerous right-angle collisions, a crash rate the findings said were greater than twice the state average and an injury rate that was three times higher.SCS also projected future safety conditions of the intersections over the next 20 years, a forecast that accounted for population growth, Fort Monmouth’s redevelopment and traffic from Apple Street to Hance Avenue.The projection showed a 0.6 percent increase in safety incidents per year, resulting in a more than 15 percent growth over the next two decades.“We noticed a lot of close calls while recording video at the intersections,” Maher said. “What’s driving this study is that vehicles aren’t able to find sufficient gaps to pull into traffic. And it creates problems with those left turns. Not only is it a crash problem, it’s a severe crash problem. You’re not risking sideswipe collisions, you’re risking T-bone collisions. Those are always more high speed and severe.”At peak-hour conditions, SCS reported upward of four-minute backups in traffic on Hance Avenue and Hope Road, a problem both concepts would address.The second acceptable concept would be to place a traffic signal at the Hance Avenue and Sycamore Avenue intersection, which would work simultaneously with the current signal at the Sycamore Avenue/Hope Road intersection and provide continuous traffic flow from one intersection to the next.SCS determined that 3.1 acres of right-of-way would need to be acquired with roughly 10 feet of widening along Sycamore Avenue required for the first concept to be completed, at a total project cost of $2.2 million.The second concept would require only 0.1 acres of right-of-way acquisition – minimizing the impact to certain property owners – but 15 feet of widening along Sycamore Avenue, with a project price tag of $1.6 million.Both concepts concerned residents who feel their property values and quality of life will be negatively impacted. But most alarming was the Hope Road extension plan, which weaved through several properties.Six previous concepts presented by SCS were deemed unfeasible by the organization.According to Ettore, the county is requesting a 30-day public comment period. Any resident wishing to file a comment is directed to submit it to the borough administrator, who will then funnel the comments to the county.The Concept 1 – Hope Road Extension plan, presented by professionals at the Tinton Falls Borough Council meeting Tuesday.

Bomber co-captains Rickaby and D’Andrea led the team in scoring with 24 and 18 points, respectively. Adam Grace added 14 points while Zak had 13.The Bombers advanced to the final by knocking off three seed Golden Eagles 80-70.LVR led 69-49 before D’Andrea went to his bench to finish the game.Zak and D’Andrea each filled the hoop from behind the arc finishing with six three-pointers.
