Hugo Lloris And Toby Alderweireld To Sign New Tottenham Contracts

Featured Image

Tottenham look like they are going to extend the contracts of two of their most important players. The Sunday Mirror reports Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld will join the likes of Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli and commit to Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino.

Kyle Walker, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose have also all signed new deals at White Hart Lane as Pochettino looks to build for the future in north London.

The Mirror claims that Lloris and Alderweireld, who were among the Lilywhites’ most important players in their Premier League title challenge last term, are close to putting pen to paper.

Both players already have three years to run on their current deals at White Hart Lane, but boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to ensure that neither departs to a rival and will therefore hold talks with the duo next week.

Lloris is believed to have verbally agreed to extend his terms in North London prior to heading off for the European Championship finals in France this summer, but a deal could not be struck in time and discussions had to be put to one side.

Government Involved In Sam Allardyce Case 

Featured Image

Sam Allardyce lost his job as England manager after a Government minister phoned the FA to demand what action was being taken. The Sun on Sunday reports sports minister Tracey Crouch called FA chief executive Martin Glenn in the wake of reports linking Big Sam to corruption.

The call came after pressure mounted on Allardyce after he was caught in a newspaper sting telling undercover reporters how to get around rules on third party ownership. “After Sam’s meeting was made public there was Government contact and that put massive pressure on them to take action,” an FA source told the newspaper.

“They wanted to know about the reports of corruption and how it was being tackled.”

14 Killed In Congo Train Attack

Featured Image

The Republic of Congo police has disclosed that 14 people have been killed including children and two soldiers in an attack on a train in the country’s southeast.

According to police officials, the attack took place near the Mindouli train station in the Pool region, 200 kilometers (124 miles) south of Brazzaville, the capital.

It was gathered that attack was carried out on Friday by former Ninja Nsiloulou fighters of ex-rebel chief Frederic Bintsamou, otherwise known as Pastor Ntumi, in the town of Mindouli in the Pool department.

“The ninjas killed 14 people… including children. They keep carrying out more and more terrorist acts,” said police spokesman Jules Monkala Tchoumou. “It is horrific.”

The Congolese government has faulted the militia’s former leader, Bitsangou, who became high commissioner for peace after a 2003 peace deal in the central African nation.

Bintsamou came out in favour of presidential candidate Guy-Brice Parfait Kolelas, who lost to longtime leader Denis Sassou Nguesso in elections in March, which the opposition say was marked by massive fraud.

Bitsangou has been missing since the April attacks, which came weeks after longtime President, N’Guesso’s re-election.

The Republic of Congo has been on edge since a constitutional referendum last October ended a two-term limit on presidential mandates, allowing the 72-year-old head of state to extend his 32 years in power.

Steven Gerrard Could Make EPL Return 

Featured Image

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard could be about to end his sojourn in America and consider a return to England. The 36-year-old has just two months left on his current LA Galaxy contract and is yet to open talks on a fresh deal.

The Sunday Mirror reports Gerrard wants to extend his playing career even if it means leaving the MLS. “I’m wondering whether I should play on for a little bit longer or whether I should call it a day. I haven’t 100 per cent decided on that yet.

“I still enjoy playing. I still love coming into training, I still love competing, so if I can carry on and there are opportunities to stay here or go somewhere else for another six months or 12 months then I’ll consider it. But if nothing comes up I’ll try and fly through the coaching badges and see what happens down that road.”

“I’m around 60 per cent through my A licence and I’m hoping to have that finished by the end of the year so we’ll go from there.”

Tale Of A Bitter Global Recession

Featured Image

Tale Of A Bitter Global Recession, By Grace Ameh

Ronald Reagan, it was, who stated that “Recession is when your neighbour loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours.” Generally, a recession is a fall in the level of economic activity. An economic recession is the debility of gross domestic product (GDP), capacity utilisation and employment rate for two or more consecutive quarters. A decline after a short period of time cannot be classified as a recession. The National Bureau of Economic Research’s (NBER) Business Cycle Dating Committee defines a recession as “a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months, normally visible in production, employment, real income, and other indicators. A recession begins when the economy reaches a peak of activity and ends when the economy reaches its trough.”

This piece was written by Grace Ameh. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

Several reports show that many economies are presently facing or are on the path to recession. Countries such as Ireland, Zimbabwe, Angola, and Venezuela are in recession. According to Bloomberg, some countries most likely to hit recession over the next one year for various reasons include Russia, Argentina and Ukraine, with a 60 percent chance; Brazil with 75 percent; and Taiwan 55 percent. Greece and the United States have also been viewed as likely economies to experience recession. The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) maintained that Nigeria hit recession in the second quarter of the year, and had a decline by -2.06 percent year on year in real terms; from the oil sector real growth was -17.48 percent year on year and the non-oil sector dropped by 0.38 percent in real terms all in the second quarter of 2016. The non-oil sector was affected due to the fact that some industries in that sector are dependent on the oil sector, regardless of the positive growth in a few of the industries in the non-oil sector.

Causes of an Economic Recession

Politics revolves around economics and vice versa. In terms of employment, comparing the fourth quarter of 2015 and the 1st quarter of 2016, we see that in quarter four (Q4) of 2015, there was an increase of 5.1 percent and in the first quarter of 2016, there was a rapid decrease of 84.1 percent. In the case of GDP, the fact that oil revenue is the highest source of government foreign exchange revenue has greatly caused a sharp decline in the total revenue generated as a result of low oil prices and the consistent vandalism of oil pipelines by the “Niger Delta Avengers” and other illegal activities. Oil price decline has been one of the greatest causes of the recession and this has greatly affected other sectors of the economy.

Analysing GDP from the Two Main Sectors – Oil and Non-Oil

All sectors in the economy from mining and quarrying, construction, trade, arts, entertainment and recreation, health, finance and insurance fell and had negative impact on the GDP. Accommodation and food services had no significant change, while information and communication experienced a fall, even if still a positive contribution to GDP. Transport and storage grew, but less than in preceding quarters. On the other hand, public administration had positive growth. Manufacturing, real estate services, electricity, gas and steam supply, education, as well as agriculture and other sectors experienced positive growths.

Some of the causes of recession in the case of Nigeria can be seen from our reality of being a mono-producing economy and the issue of us being mainly consumers. People exaggerate the idea of recession like it’s the final stage of failure. Recession is not the end. Many countries have been in recession and have bounced back stronger. The only control is to take measures that would not settle on the tables of government officials but are stringent and implemented unambiguously by the government, as well as individuals. People now realise that they cannot continue with their usual tastes, spend as they used to, as the prices in the market keep shooting high; that’s fine, but if money is not pumped into the economy and individuals do not spend, how can we come out of a recession? The appropriate thing to do is to look at what consumptions habits to curb and how to improve on investment, government expenditure and net exports.

Nigerians realise that the fall in the value of naira exacerbated this recession. The naira has greatly depreciated and even those who have no business transacting in dollars still complain of the naira devaluation because of the complex value chains that exists among goods and services and the need for people to recover costs and hedge themselves against galloping stagflation by every means. It is a case of ‘survival of the fittest’; Charles Darwin’s very nightmare going on in Nigeria with those who don’t have much to sell or to gain extra income bearing the full brunt! This recession has caused Nigerians to ask “to be or not to be for the present government?” The delay in passing the budget has been a drawback for the economy but we can still say that it is better delayed than exploited.

We will surely bounce back but a lot of hard work is in front of us!

Ranieri Admits Leicester Lucky To Escape With A Point

Featured Image

Leicester City head coach Claudio Ranieri has admitted the foxes were lucky to escape with a 0-0 draw against Southampton.

Puel’s men were the better of both sides in the encounter with Charlie Austin hitting the bar and missing the opportunity to win all three points for Southampton.

And even though the foxes threatened at times, Ranieri will not deceive himself with the notion that his team was not second best.

“I thought Southampton deserved to win,” the Italian told the club’s official website. “They had more chances and better control today. We have to continue to work.

“I’m happy with the point because we conceded too many chances. Fortunately for us, Kasper Schmeichel made good saves.

“It’s a new experience, adapting after Champions League [games]. Southampton made seven changes today and maybe that’s why they were better.

“The other teams are very worried with our counter-attack and they try to stop us every time. We have to find the solution.

“But a clean sheet, a point and, once again, our fans gave us so much energy. I recognise they played better than us, fortunately we finished with a draw from the match.”

Pochettino: We Were Almost Perfect

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino had praised his side for making the most of their chances against Manchester City, to emerge 2-0 winners.

Tottenham were described as ‘almost perfect’ by the Argentine after a Kolarov own goal was followed with a well placed Dele Alli strike.

The result should have been more devastating for City, who recorded their first loss of the campaign, had Lamela scored from the spot.

“The performance was nearly perfect. To play a great team like Manchester City, you need to do a fantastic job,” he said.

“For that, I’m very proud of our players’ work. Collectively, we worked very hard, all the players were fantastic on the pitch.

“It was a real exciting game. Both teams played in an exciting way. We share a similar philosophy. I enjoyed it a lot, the fans enjoyed it a lot, the neutral people enjoyed it too, both teams’ mentality was to go forward, play football, and try to win the game.

“We are a team that always wants control. In front was Manchester City, who want the same as us. Then it’s a battle on the pitch. For that I feel very pleased, our players showed big commitment to our philosophy.”

Spurs have now won five matches in a row in all competitions, but they are not in action again until October 15 due to internationals.

Aquarius Canceled By NBC After Just Two Seasons 

Featured Image

NBC finally decides to cancel Aquarius

The peacock network has cancelled the David Duchovny-fronted summer series after two low-rated seasons.

The show’s fate was all but cemented in early August when NBC announced it was relocating the Charles Manson-themed period drama from its Thursday perch to the TV cemetery known as Saturday Night. At the time, entertainment president Jennifer Salke conceded the series faced “tough” odds of seeing a third season.

The series was set in Los Angeles in 1967. Duchovny played Detective Sam Hodiak who was tasked with investigating the disappearance of a teenaged girl (Emma Dumont), only to find out that she was with the Manson Family.

Gethin Anthony played a fictionalized version of Manson. The rest of the core cast included Grey Damon, Claire Holt, Ambyr Childers, Madisen Beaty, Cameron Deane, Michaela McManus, Brían F. O’Byrne and Chance Kelly.

The decision to end the drama comes after showrunner McNamara told THR ahead of its series debut that he envisioned the drama running for six seasons. “I planned out the show in terms of six seasons, and every season is approximately six months,” he said. “If you Wikipedia Manson, he was doing stuff, some of which we portray in the show, and some of which we are making leaps and connecting dots ourselves. He was not inactive. He’s a psychopath and we do not shy away from that. I don’t believe you’re going to finish watching episode 13 and say, ‘Wow, that was a big jerk-off; he didn’t do anything!’ He goes there. It’s not going to have a happy ending; we all know that, but that actually informs the suspense nicely in a way that I feel allowed us occasionally to slow down the storytelling a little bit.”

Conte “Chelsea Must Work, Work, Work”

Featured Image

Antonio Conte has praised the tireless work ethic of his men following their win over Hull City for the first time since August.

The second half of the match saw the blues go 2-0 up within seven minutes, thanks to superb goals from Willian and Costa.

The Italian coach’s response to consecutive league defeat is to revert to his 3-4-3 formation which he utilised at Juventus and Italy.

But it was his players’ character and willingness to sweat for the cause that pleased him most as they ran out deserved winners, with Hull fortunate to avoid greater punishment after the interval.

“It’s an important win after two defeats,” he told a post-match news conference. “This win is important for the team because we are working hard.

“After two defeats it’s not easy because you must work and also find the resolution to change and to improve.

“We did a good performance with the right intensity and pressure. I like it when the team plays in this way. I like it so much.

“I saw many of the players with great commitment, attitude and will to change the situation. I am pleased for them.

“We are working very hard and I am sure we can improve a lot if we continue to work in this way.”

Chelsea were able to keep a clean sheet for the first time in four attempts across all competitions, since long-serving captain John Terry suffered a foot injury during the 2-2 draw at Swansea City.

“I am pleased for all the players because we have a clean sheet. In previous games we conceded too many goals,” Conte added.

“To finish with a clean sheet is very important. We also scored two and the performance is good. We must follow this with work, work, work!”

Boko Haram: Niger, Chad Troops Kill ‘123 Militants’ In Crackdown

Featured Image

Nigerien Defence Ministry on Friday said a joint military operation between Chad and Niger has killed 123 Boko Haram militants since July and recovered a significant quantity of weapons.

The Chadian-Nigerien forces launched an offensive against the Islamists after a surprise attack in Niger killed 30 of the country’s troops in early June, its deadliest ever attack there.

According to Defence ministry spokesman Colonel Moustapha Ledru, 14 of the two nations’ own troops had also died and 39 had been wounded in fighting with the Nigerian militant group over the same period.

“An important quantity of arms and weapons were recovered,” he said.

They targeted the Diffa region, which lies just across the border from the Islamists’ stronghold in northeastern Nigeria.

The spokesman also said that the “terrorists” who had been killed had “infiltrated” into Diffa from Nigeria, adding that two fighters had been captured.

Boko Haram has been waging a war to establish an Islamist caliphate around the Lake Chad region, where Nigeria, Cameroon; Niger and Chad meet.

Cavaliers offer KG coaching job

I talked to him about it, I know his wife is pushing for it a lot. Brandi is pushing for it, trying to get him to come and coach. He says he’s not ready yet. He goes back, `I might do it,’ but he’s back and forth. We’ll see. But I’d definitely make a spot for him if he wanted to come back and coach.” Coach Lue said after team practice on Thursday.

Kevin Garnett announced his retirement from the NBA last Friday after 21 seasons in the league, averaging 17.8 points and 10.0 rebounds per game as well as winning the league in 2008. The 40-year-old is a sure-fire Hall of Famer and played for the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics, but he is best known for his time with the Minnesota Timberwolves when he had nine consecutive seasons.

Lue also said that Garnett plans to attend the Cavs opening game on Oct. 25, when superstar Lebron James and his teammates will receive their championship rings and raise a title banner.

A Movie About Not Making A Movie

Featured Image

In 2014, three Filmmakers from Chicago raised $78,000 on crowdfunding site, Indiegogo to make a movie and then they disappeared.

The three sketch comedy artists known as FND Films collected the cash and fell off the face of the earth. No details were revealed about the promised film aside from the title: It’s All Good.

Understandably, supporters, fans and donors were furious. Their Facebook page was flooded with comments like “Are you fucking serious???? Where’s the fucking money??“. Some people even threatened legal action against FND Films.

Finally, a video surfaced where FND Films president Aaron Fronk apologized to fans, saying “I’m so sorry to announce that due to complications and things beyond our control, the movie can no longer be completed“. Even going on Fox news to admit that the group ran out of money before even a fraction of the film was completed.

With the situation reaching peak level in their Facebook comment section, FMD Films announce that they did infact make a film… A film about not making a movie.

The film, still titled It’s All Good, is an action comedy out on Oct. 21 about what happens when three dudes crowdfund a movie project and then run away with the cash. The plot mirrors the filmmakers’ experience on Indiegogo and dealing with angry contributors, but spins off into a fictionalized account of how they blow it. The movie also includes footage from real angry fans .

Lahm: Bayern Have Lots Of Work To Do

Featured Image

Philipp Lahm believes Bayern Munich are not where Carlo Ancelotti wants them to be yet, after a 1-1 draw with Cologne.

The Bavarians opened the scoring thanks to Joshua Kimmich, only for Modeste’s acrobatic effort to earn a point for his side.

And even though they have opened a lead at the top of the table, Lahm believes they need to reach where Ancelotti wants.

“We still have much work to do,” he said. “Offensively as well as defensively we have to work. We see that we are not yet where we want to go.

“We need to get there. In recent years we have succeeded. We have now lost a game and drawn today.

“It is quite normal that we do not always go with the same technique and that has come because there are new coaches here.

“Of course we are disappointed, we wanted to win. It has always distinguished us that we do not drop points, especially not at home.

“Nevertheless, we are set [at the top]. Now there are very important matches after the break and we have to improve.”

Rose added that Knicks coaches have been impressed by his stamina, which is measured by a wearable technology that the Knicks players use during practice.

“This is my first time paying attention to it,” Rose said. “And the training staff went into depth about how hard I go and how much distance I cover and the impact of how I just play. And they have to kick me off the court here and there cause of how hard I work.”

Jose Mourinho is insisting that Wayne Rooney remains the captain at Manchester United, despite starting from the bench.

The England international was dropped to the bench in the EPL match against Leicester City and also in the Europa League match against Zorya.

Nevertheless, Mourinho is adamant Rooney has no reason to worry about potentially losing the armband, regardless of his changed status.

“Wayne is the captain, no matter what,” the manager told reporters.

“It doesn’t matter whether he is on or off the pitch. He is my captain and the captain of the club and the captain of the players.

“And that is difficult, to be the captain of everyone. So he has all the respect and all the support. He is a Manchester United man, he is a great professional and wants to win and of course he was happy when we scored.

“He is speaking to the players and motivates people. He does exactly in the dressing room the same as he did a couple of weeks ago when he was starting matches. He is our man. He will score goals for us and he will work hard for us, I have no doubts about it.”
