Haye Itching To Face Bellew

Featured Image

David Haye is shocked that Tony Bellew feels he has a shot against him when the face come March 4 at The O2.

The Brit feels it’ll be easy fighting his countryman, after squaring off against bigger heavyweights.

Bellew will make the jump from Cruiserweight, where he has a world champion to heavyweight, for the much awaited bout against Haye.

But the 36-year-old Haye, a former world champion at cruiserweight and heavyweight, is surprised pundits are giving Bellew a hope.

“His biggest strength is that he can somehow talk his way into a fight like this,” Haye told Sky Sports News HQ.

“That he can somehow convince people that he has got a chance to beat me. In my eyes, I don’t see how people can give him a chance.

“He is so basic, so static.

“I hope he is way better than I give him credit for. I’d love for this fight to go three, four five rounds maybe and give some entertainment.

“I have been competing at heavyweight for nearly nine years and I am used to fighting a lot bigger guys.

“This is a real treat for me, I am fighting a guy the same size, and I am going to take it with both hands.”

Guardiola Rues Missed Chances Against Spurs

Featured Image

Manchester City were denied a clear penalty, but that is not the issue Pep Guardiola is addressing, as he accuses his players of wasting chances.

The Citizens dominated from start to finish and two errors from Lloris gave Sane and De Bruyne a chance to put them 2-0 up.

Alli pulled one back after De Bruyne’s goal and Son equalised shortly after City were denied a clear penalty by Andre Marriner after Walker shoved Sterling in the box.

City had burst out of the blocks in the first half, but failed to score with a host of clear chances, and this was the focus of Guardiola’s ire, rather than Marriner’s misstep.

He told BT Sport : “We played very good, we missed a lot of chances and when this happens, you cannot win.

“It’s what has happened all season. We create more, concede a few.

“We are not going to achieve big targets because always in our performances like Everton [a 4-0 loss], like Chelsea [a 3-1 loss] we are not able to score so it’s impossible, we keep trying, we keep trying and we get nothing.

“First thing, we missed a lot of chances. We are playing against Tottenham and Tottenham is a top, top, top, top team.

“When you make chances, the referee doesn’t matter, but when you miss the chances people use the referees [as an excuse].”

Prostitute Declared WANTED After Infecting 500 Men With HIV In Zamfara

Featured Image

A certain prostitute (name withheld) has been declared wanted for allegedly infecting no fewer than 500 men with the deadly Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Zamfara State.

It was gathered that the sex worker, who hailed from a state in the southern part of the country, is on the run as the State’s Sharia police has mounted a manhunt for her.

Nigerian Tribune reports that she had moved to Gusau, the state capital, in search of greener pastures before opening a sex shop in her rented apartment in a neighbourhood along Igbo Road.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a source squealed that things took a bad turn for the woman after she engaged in an open fight with a customer who suddenly accused her of carrying the deadly virus and spreading it to her customers.

Soon after the squabble, she suddenly disappeared.

It was learnt that her sudden disappearance convinced many residents of the truth in the HIV allegation with her whereabouts still to be known.

It was further gathered that a host of prominent persons in the state were among those who contracted the deadly virus from the woman during the spell of her sex trade.

The source disclosed that some of the prominent persons infected had been placed on antiretroviral drugs by their physicians with others having their conditions managed at various health centres in the state.

When contacted, the chairman of the state’s Shari’ah monitoring group known as Hisbah, Dr Atiku Balarabe Zawiyya, said his group was aware of the development and confirmed the disappearance of the suspect after his men stormed her residence to arrest her.

Moyes Says Sunderland Keeps Conceding Poor Goals

Featured Image

David Moyes has moaned at how Sunderland Keeps conceding goals they can avoid, as they lost to West Brom.

Darren Fletcher put West Brom in front with a well taken goal, before a defending mistake gave Chris Brunt a chance to extend the lead.

Sunderland are still bottom of the table, after a surprise 3-2 win by Swansea against Liverpool.

“We played better in the second than the first that is for sure. We are giving poor goals away and we are doing everything we can to eradicate it but it is a disease that we have got at the moment,” he told BBC Sport.

“[The first goal] was well executed by Darren Fletcher. We defended the original corner well but the ball was bobbling around and we didn’t clear it.”

More Injury Woes For Zidane, As Marcelo And Modric Join Growing Injury

Featured Image

Zinedine Zidane has registered his frustration at Madrid’s growing injury list, with Marcelo and Modric forced off in the match against Malaga.

Marcelo was forced off in the first half, with Isco subbing in and Vasquez moving to right back.

Kovacic came on to replace Modric, who came off in the late stages. Carvajal, Pepe, Danilo and Coentrao are out with injuries.

James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale are part of the attacking players out injured. Zidane has limited resources, as he will play Celta Vigo on Wednesday in the return leg of the Copa del Rey.

“Luka has an issue, some discomfort,” Zidane told reporters after the match. “We hope it is not serious. We will see on Sunday with a scan. We don’t know the exact problem yet.

“Marcelo’s injury is more complicated and they will both undergo more tests.

“Coentrao has a problem too, and the Castilla team are not here this weekend, otherwise I would have put in one of the youngsters.

“Danilo felt discomfort after Friday’s training and in the morning wasn’t feeling well so we decided to rest him. I am a bit upset with the injuries. My mind is a bit blown. We have a big game Wednesday and injuries are screwing it up.

“A lot of the season is still left and like I always say, we will be needing every player.”

Chiellini: Sixth Successive Scudetto Will Make Us Legends

Featured Image

Giorgio Chiellini believes that winning a sixth Scudetto in a row will make Juventus players legends of Italian football.

Juventus has dominated the Serie A since the 2010-11 season under Conte, with Allegri continuing in like fashion. This is the second time in their history they’ll be winning the title five times in a row, with Torino and Inter also achieving the feat once in their history.

No club in Italy has won it six times in a row and Chiellini is sure, it’ll cement their spot in the history books.

After 19 matches they sit one point clear of Roma with a game in hand, and if they manage to hang on until May Chiellini says their names will always be remembered.

“I’d love the sixth straight Serie A title!” Chiellini told the Corriere dello Sport. “It’s something nobody has ever done before and something that would make us become legends of Italian sport.

“It’s an opportunity we’d never be able to repeat, and I think you’d have to wait a very long time for a side capable of winning six consecutive titles again.

“Therefore we can’t let this chance slip away. We all want it and have to achieve it.”

Juve host Lazio on Sunday as they look to bounce back from last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Fiorentina.

Eibar Pitch Worries Enrique

Featured Image

Luis Enrique has registered his worry at the type of pitch that his side could meet when they visit Eibar.

Weather forecasts has predicted that the pitch at Ipurua is in danger of freezing and the Barcelona coach worries about how it’ll affect play.

Luis Enrique is hoping that is not the case as it’ll affect the play of both teams, who like to play from defence.

“Yes, the pitch worries me a little bit because of the forecast,” the Catalans’ trainer said at his pre-match press conference.

“Normally Ipurua is a stadium that has a great playing surface where you can play great football.

“Hopefully it will not affect the game as a spectacle. It could affect both sides. We will see how it is and will have to see what the weather is like.”

Barca are third in the table going into the weekend and Luis Enrique expects a difficult test against the hosts, who sit ninth, as his side seek a fourth straight win across all competitions.

“You have to study them a bit,” he added. “They have a style of play, bringing the ball out from the back and can link defence with midfield.

“They have good wide players who can cross in the final third like Pedro Leon, their full-backs get forward and they get men into the box.

“They are a complete team with and without the ball. They pressure you and don’t give you room to breathe.

“Eibar are in the top half for a reason and it could be a good spectacle for the fans.

“We have been looking for a long run of victories since start of season, but we haven’t had that. Let’s hope this can be it.

“We need them, especially in the league, to put pressure on the teams above us.”

Borno Agency Director Inserts Hot Electric Heater Into Son’s Anus For Being Gay

Featured Image

The Borno State Police Command has arrested a certain Director of Planning in one of the ministries in the State, (name withheld), for allegedly inserting ‘hot’ electric heater into the anus of his 10-year old son over the allegation of engaging in homosexual activities.

Vanguard reports that the untoward act was perpetrated by the top civil servant after he was informed that his son performed the act with some politicians.

Even though the boy, (name also withheld), tried to convince his dad that he was raped at their 1000 Government Housing Estate residence, his words fell on deaf ears as his father still meted out the ignoble chastisement on him, causing him bodily injuries.

It was learnt that the victim was chained before his father, who was accused of denying his children western education, carried out the act.

Sources also said that the top government official recently chained one of his daughters named Mama for insulting her stepmother in the estate.

Another  top government official, who pleaded anonymity, said the director had been arrested while efforts to confirm the incident from the Police Public Relations Officer of Borno State Command, Mr. Victor Isuku proved abortive.

However, some residents said  that the estate was recording growing rate of homosexual activities.

Endgame And Abacha’s Last Disciple

Endgame And Abacha’s Last Disciple, By Louis Odion

Those skilled in psychoanalysis could not have missed the telltale hint. Newspaper images we saw of Yahya Jammeh receiving ECOWAS emissaries at the Banjul airport last Friday clearly depicted acute weight loss, accentuated by a distant look on his face.

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

Really, it would have been humanly impossible to be haunted at home and heckled from outside like Jammeh has been in the past seven weeks and remain unruffled.

Click here to read several interesting articles

An unconfirmed source even quoted him jokingly beseeching the leader of the august visitors, Nigeria’s Muhammadu Buhari, “Mr. President, please don’t invade my country.”

If true, it would seem the self-confessed herbalist (he claims a HIV/AID cure) who prefers to be addressed elaborately as, “His Excellency, Sheik, Professor, Alhaji, Doctor” had, alas, become aware of the limitation of his much-vaunted talisman.

Before The Gamble In The Gambia: Memo To Buhari

But like the proverbial doomed house-fly destined to join the coffin in the grave, The Gambian buffoon failed to take advantage of the olive branch offer by the ECOWAS peace-makers in the last-ditch effort to save him from himself. Not even another face-saving offer of asylum by the Nigerian congress would dissuade him from the path of perdition.

On Tuesday, he took liberty to impose a three-month state of emergency even when his legal mandate would expire less than twenty-four hours (on Wednesday night).

Before then, the Government House had almost become deserted and Banjul a ghost town following the exodus of fearful citizens to Senegal and other neighbouring countries. No fewer than eight cabinet members (including the Information and Foreign Ministers) had resigned and defected.

The floodgate of resignations was opened by no less than the chief electoral officer himself, Alieu Momar Njai. After declaring Adama Barrow winner of the December 1 polls, Njai had admitted some glitches in the process of tabulating the results.

Barrow Whisked To Safety, Thousands Fleeing Gambia As Political Crisis Deepens

But despite the fact that the reconciled figures still did not alter the outcome significantly, Jammeh, who had ruled the tiny country for 22 years, suddenly found a cheap alibi to recant his earlier concession of victory to the opposition.

From initially accepting defeat, the Gambian desperado wanted a re-run election.

Njai responded by sneaking out of the country, upsetting Jammeh’s crafty trap.

So, as the Nigerian warship and ECOWAS troops begin to mass along the Gambian coast in the days ahead of what now appears an inevitable invasion of the presidential fortress in Banjul, the nay-sayers – like Nigeria’s Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu – need not misconstrue the historic necessity of the task at hand.

The mission to dislodge Jammeh for refusing to obey the electoral verdict of December 1 should not be seen as a favour to a fellow West African nation. Rather, it is a moral duty owed the long-suffering people of The Gambia.

The argument of Ekweremadu and those preaching against the military option is essentially based on the otherwise thoughtful notion that “to jaw-jaw is better than to war-war”. But such pacifism is tenable only on the premise that we are dealing with a sane man. From his conduct over the years, especially the odd symptoms seen in the past 49 days, it should be clear to everyone now we have on our hands a power psychopath, if not a first-class psychiatric patient.

Those presently worried about the material costs of a military invasion are only being myopic. They should consider the price ECOWAS would pay if the Jammeh cancer is not quickly staved and excised but is instead allowed to metastasise into a full-blown civil war with the attendant humanitarian crisis and instability for the sub-region.

If nothing at all, ECOWAS’ swift and robust handling of the issue thus far should be a source of pride, not only to the people of the sub-region but the rest of the Africa, that democratic norms and values are fast taking root and, most significantly, that the people themselves are now developing the mechanism and capacity to resolve issues arising therefrom in the spirit of African solidarity without the prodding of any external neo-colonial power.

Overall, perhaps only those with a fairly long memory today could attest that Jammeh is indeed a calamity long foretold. After seizing power on July 22, 1994 as a young Army officer, he never hid his admiration for then Nigerian fledgling despot, Sani Abacha.

As the infantry general in Abuja was increasingly isolated by the international community on account of his murderous proclivities, Jammeh became a regular visitor to Nigeria for fellowship at Aso Rock in his trademark gaudy costume of over-sized white Agbada, conspicuous sword and giant-sized prayer-beads, offering the public ceaseless comic entertainment. One salacious account has it that his preference for big Agbada in public outing is to conceal a permanent bulletproof vest.

Nigeria Raises Army Battalion For Gambia, Ready To ‘Forcefully’ Remove Yahya Jammeh

But unlike Abacha who, lacking self-confidence, chose a rather serpentine route in pursuit of a transmutation from Army law-giver to civilian president, Jammeh short-circuited his own metamorphosis to a civilian president within two years in the relatively much smaller The Gambia.

Like his hero in kleptocracy in Abuja, the little read Jammeh ruled his tiny country with an iron fist, even as he mindlessly purloined the bulk of the little that trickled into the national treasury mostly from peanut and tourism. And while the vast majority of Gambia’s population of two million wallow in indigence, the megalomaniac leader lives a life of debauchery and filthy extravagance.

To further secure himself, he lately decided to mix politics with religion by proclaiming his country an Islamic country in blatant disregard for the sensibilities of a good number of citizens who are practising Christians. But one of the supreme ironies is that though he gave an executive order banning women from appearing in public without scarf consistent with Sharia practice, that hardly stopped his psychedelic Moroccan wife from continuing to flaunt openly her own procured assorted Brazilian hair at every opportunity.

Indeed, “Abachaology” and the darkness it embodied had since unraveled in the land of its birth. But the enduring tragedy is that the infatuated like Jammeh still seem detained by that sordid past, refusing to read the ominous handwriting now on the wall. The savages are unwilling to accept that, with a more conscientised electorate, fixing election results or disobeying its outcome is fast going out of fashion in Africa.

It then explains why Jammeh, whose own family has since reportedly fled the country, seems still incapable of appreciating – much less following – the worthy footsteps of Ghana’s John Mahama who, tellingly, is among the ECOWAS peacemakers today. Mahama vied for a second term in the Ghanaian polls and lost precisely a week after the exercise in The Gambia. Once fully in receipt of the figures from the polling units, he promptly called the opposition candidate to congratulate him, even before the results were officially declared by Ghana’s electoral empire.

President Jammeh Goes Tough On ECOWAS, Vows To Defend Gambian Sovereignty

Now, even after 22 years in the saddle, the political glutton in Banjul is still unwilling to let go. But he no longer has a choice.

Nwosu: Mirror of the National Condition

He may not be a card-carrying member of any political party, but Steve Nwosu would certainly qualify to be called the dream citizen Nigeria could wish for.

Though of Igbo parentage (Imo State), he grew up and schooled in Ilorin, Kwara State in the North-Central. Perhaps the reason his Yoruba is as – if not more – fluent than his native Igbo language.

Upon graduation from the university, he settled in the South-West city of Lagos.

With his good grade, he could have easily secured a better-paying job in the banking world or the oil and gas industry. But because of his love of country and passion for social justice, he chose journalism. He started from the bottom of the ladder in the newsroom. Regardless of countless tempting offers of political appointments, he never looked back.

By sheer hard work and dedication, he rose through the rank at The Guardian to becoming editor in ThisDay, Sun and now Deputy Managing Director at The Sun in a career spanning over two decades.

Breaking the age-old ethnic barrier, he would go outside his village to find love and marry a Yoruba lady – Toyin. Both are raising kids with dual heritage – Igbo and Yoruba.

But last weekend, Steve again found himself in circumstances certain to test the faith of even the staunchest believer. A call came that gunmen had kidnapped his second daughter attending the Nigerian-Turkish College in Ogun State, alongside seven others.
It did not take long before the sons of dog made contact demanding a whopping N600 million ransom for six of their victims who are Nigerians and N600 million for the other two who are Turkish nationals.

Gambia’s Jammeh Bows To Pressure, Agrees To Relinquish Power

Incidentally, two years ago, Steve, “a poor journalist” as he likes to call himself, had found himself in similar soul-wrenching condition. The family were fast asleep in their Lagos home when heavily armed beasts barged in and, on top of stripping the household bare of all valuables they could find, whisked Toyin away as hostage to further squeeze ransom from the traumatised husband.

During that horrible hour, not only the serenity of their homestead was violated; imagine the plight of little kids rudely roused from sleep by the grating voices of thugs in the house, now left to endure for the rest of their innocent lives the bitter memory of that nightmare.

Three years before Toyin’s abduction in 2015, Steve yet suffered a brutal encounter with armed robbers on a motorbike in Lagos busy traffic under the shadowless glare of daylight. He just made a little cash withdrawal to sustain his family for the weekend when the hoodlums who apparently had been trailing him, pounced on him in the gridlock.

So heartless, they were not content with snatching only the little cash; one of the assailants then pulled the trigger at his face at a close range.

Miraculously, the bullet failed to snuff life out of Steve. The hot lead grazed his temple, leaving an indelible scar he would carry for the rest of his life.

Now, the abduction of his daughter last weekend!

Jammeh Begs ECOWAS To Extend Deadline To Stand Down

In a way, the unending travails of the Nwosu family undoubtedly speak to the human condition in contemporary Nigeria: short, nasty and brutish. To say nothing of stray bullets from trigger-happy cops in their ubiquity. Or the near permanent danger of Boko Haram.

But just how much more can a family take?

Nigerian Troops Capture Foreign Boko Haram Terrorist, Kill 15 In Rann

Featured Image

A Boko Haram terrorist suspected to be a foreigner has been captured by Nigerian troops in Rann, Borno State.

The suspect not yet identified by Nigerian military authorities, was among the ban of terrorists that staged an attack on Rann, the location of the Internally Displaced Persons Camp, that was accidentally hit by Nigerian Air Force jet on Tuesday.

The attack was a bad adventure for the terrorists as fifteen of them were killed by Nigerian soldiers.

Soldiers Kill 8 Boko Haram Fighters During Attack On Rann IDP Camp

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, confirmed the killing and capture of the terrorists in Rann on Friday, when he paid an operational visit to troops of 3 Batallion.

Buratai said the insurgents came again to the town in two gun trucks on Thursday at about 6p.m. to attack, but were repelled by the soldiers, who killed 15, while others escaped with one gun truck.

He added that the troops recovered the other truck with weapons, including one General Purpose Machine Gun, three AK47 and ammunitions.

Buratai recalled that the Tuesday’s incident, the Air Force component of the Operation Lafiya Dole based on intelligence that the terrorists had infiltrated Rann with intent to attack, deployed the rockets.

Death Toll In IDP Camp Bombing Rises To 76

He, however, regretted that the weapons mistakenly hit IDPs camps in the town, killing over 50 civilians and wounding many others.

“Two of our soldiers were also affected in the unfortunate incident,” Buratai said.

He described the incident as unfortunate and big mistake.

“We have all learnt lessons from it.

“We will take note of this; the issue of coordination and passage of the right information will help to prevent such incident again.

“It is a mistake which can happen and it has happened in other places. We pray it never happen again,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while addressing the troops, Buratai urged them not to allow the unfortunate incident to demoralise them.

He charged them to remain committed, dedicated and patriotic, assuring them that their efforts would be rewarded.

The chief of army staff also met with elders of the community and condoled with them over the incident.

According to the Commanding Officer of 3 Battalion, Lt.-Col. I. P. Omoke, Rann was one of the last towns retaken from the insurgents on March 22, 2016.

52 Nigerians Dead, 120 Wounded After Military Jet “Accidentally” Bombed IDP Camp

Omoke said since then, the terrorists had made five failed attempts to attack the town but never succeeded.

Rann, the headquarters of Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno, is 175km from Maiduguri and 8km to the Republic of Cameroon.

Westbrook After Missing Out On Starting Position: I Don’t Play For All-Star Bids

Featured Image

Russell Westbrook is not concerned about missing the starting lineup in the All-star Game, as his primary focus is to better himself and win an NBA championship.

The OKC Thunder star was not among the Western conference starters after losing a tiebreaker with Curry and Harden.

The superstar was left out of the West, with the NBA’s new voting system involving players and the media.

“It is what it is,” Westbrook said Friday. “That’s the nature of the business, the game. I just play. I don’t play for All-Star bids. I play to win championships, and every night I compete at a high level, and it’ll work out.

“I just continue doing what I’m doing and play the game the right way, and everything else will work out.”

Westbrook was actually tied with Curry and Harden in the points tally after finishing first in the media vote and player vote and third in the fan vote, but Curry and Harden beat him out because the fan vote was the tiebreaker.

“[Winning the players’ vote] doesn’t change anything for me,” Westbrook said. “It’s a great honor … and being an All-Star is something you don’t take for granted.

“But like I said, I don’t play to play in the All-Star [Game]. … I play to become a better player and to win championships.”

“I don’t want to take away anything from anybody, because I’m obviously not with all those players on a regular basis,” Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. “But in my opinion, there’s no way he should not be starting in an All-Star Game.

“That’s it. Someone can say, ‘Well, who then?’ I’m not getting into that. I’m saying what he’s done this year. Here’s a guy, in my opinion, clearly is right in the thick of the MVP race for the entire league. So there in itself, I think everybody would admit that.”

Lewandowski: I Scored A Lucky Matchwinner

Featured Image

Lewandowski said luck factored in as he scored his winner in the 2-1 comeback win over Freiburg.

The Poland international equalised for Bayern after connecting with a Douglas Costa cross.

Lewandowski, then scored the winner in the dying seconds after chesting a Ribery cross and sending a volley into the bottom corner.

“My first thought was to pass the ball straight away, but that was not easy because there was nobody there yet,” Lewandowski told reporters.

“I then just wanted to control the ball, play it simple and try anything. Fortunately, I succeeded. I did well to control the ball and then had a bit of luck. I did not hit the ball as clean as I wanted to, but a goal is a goal.

“We fought right until the end and eventually succeeded. That is the Bundesliga for you. Our opponent defended well. We had to be patient. It was important to win the first game after the restart.

“It is never easy against Freiburg, who are very organised and tactically strong. They did well both in defence and in attack.”

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti, meanwhile, was pleased to see Bayern emerge victorious after a complicated match.

“It was a difficult game, because we faced a strong and aggressive opponent,” the Bayern boss told reporters.

“We did not put in a good performance in the opening 45 minutes. But I liked the desire and the character that the team showed. That is why we won the game in the end.

“We cannot be happy with the way we played, but we can be happy with the result.”

Australian Open: Serena Williams Cruises To Fourth Round, With Easy Win Over Nicole

Featured Image

Serena Williams first two matches at the Australian Open was not a routine win, as she slugged it out against two former top 10 players.

However, it was an easy stroll to the fourth round of the Open, as the No. 2 seed beat Nicole Gibbs 6-1 6-3 in 63 minutes.

“It’s such a beautiful day today; it wasn’t really hot,” Williams said in her on-court interview. “It was really good to get this under my belt.”

The 35-year-old Williams who had a breeze against the 23-year-old, will now meet No. 16 seed Barbora Strycova.

Williams is a six-time Australian Open champion, matching Novak Djokovic for the Open era record. To regain her No. 1 ranking, she must win the title here and hope Angelique Kerber loses before the final.

Pochettino : Tottenham Is Bigger Than Manchester City

Featured Image

Tottenham will visit Manchester City at the Etihad, later today, and Mauricio Pochettino has stated his side is bigger than the home team.

Spurs are once again in the race to win the title, sitting second and seven points behind Chelsea, while City is down in fifth.

Pochettino has battled Guardiola when he was at Espanyol and his colleague at Barcelona, but believes he’s with a much bigger club with Tottenham.

“[In Spain] the gap was massive, massive. Now, historically Tottenham is bigger than Manchester City. The fans are bigger at Tottenham,” Pochettino said.

“You can compare in Spain. Between Espanyol and Barcelona, you can measure the gap. Here, it’s too difficult to measure the gap. It’s a completely different world.”
