Are David And Victoria Beckham Divorcing? Here’s All We Know

Featured Image

Elite couple, David and Victoria Beckham, have hit out at fake news spreading on social media that the duo are on the verge of a divorce.

Claims that the couple were to split started circulating on Twitter on Friday morning and even prompted a high street bookmakers to suspend betting on them getting a divorce.

How did these rumors start?

Following what is being said on Twitter, it seems the spark that lit the fire under this round of speculation came when a yet-to-be-known report claimed that David was cheating on Victoria with their daughter, Harper’s, teacher (and that she’s supposedly now pregnant with his child).

According to Mirror Online, “bookies suspended betting on news of them splitting following thousands of tweets claiming the couple would be putting out a statement.”

A spokesman from Paddy Power earlier said:” We’ve decided to suspend betting on the separation between Posh and Becks.”

The denial!

However, the rumours were strongly denied by the Beckhams.

The Telegraph quoted a spokesman for Victoria Beckham, the former Spice Girl turned fashion designer, as saying:

“If I spent all my time responding to ridiculous Beckham gossip and rumours there wouldn’t be enough hours in the day. What nonsense. Journalist Chinese whispers and fake news fuelled by social media. There is no impending statement, no divorce.”

David Beckham’s spokesman said:

“It is nonsense. It is one of those laughable, nonsense things. There is no divorce. It is laughable.”

How they met?

Dubbed “Posh and Becks” by the media, the couple met when Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls, attended a Manchester United match in 1997.

They started dating shortly after, and married in 1999, just weeks after David helped Manchester United complete an historic “treble” of Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup.

The duo are blessed with four children: Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and daughter Harper, seven.

The couple’s marriage launched them to fame beyond the realm of their chosen professions, with David becoming a global fashion icon and Victoria building her own clothing empire.

In 2007, David signed for MLS side LA Galaxy, with the family’s move to California cementing their position as a global celebrity brand.

They have four children: Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and daughter Harper, seven.

On the fourth, both Kanye and Cudi say, “Nothing hurts me anymore, guess what baby, I feel free.” Track five is built around the words “keep moving forward.”

The sixth track opens with someone singing the words “kids see ghosts sometimes.” The seventh and final track opens with a prominent sample of Kurt Cobain’s “Burn the Rain” (from the Montage of Heck companion album). The official track titles and credits have yet to be confirmed.

“Racism In South Africa Worse Than Russia” – MacBeth Sibaya

Featured Image

Former Bafana Bafana player Macbeth Sibaya has reportedly said that racism back home in South Africa is worse than anything he experienced playing in Russia.

Sibaya, who has now retired from playing, spent seven years in Russia at Rubin Kazan from 2003.

“They are very curious I wouldn’t say it’s racism because I live here in South Africa so I know what racism is,” the former player who spent seven years in Russia at Rubin Kazan from 2003 told BBC Sport.

“Racism is a system and I didn’t see a system directed at hating blacks.”

The 40-year-old, who was part of the South Africa squad at the 2002 and 2010 World Cups, admits there are problems in Russia but not on the scale of South Africa.

He continued: “I’m not denying that it [racism] happens but I am saying I live in South Africa I know racism it’s not like that in Russia.”

Sibaya also had some advice for any African fans following their team at the World Cup.

“I’d say they have to be as African as they can be because that is your strength,” he said.

“So don’t try to be someone else if you are going to survive anywhere in the world you have to be who you really are.”

Presently a coach for South African side SuperSport United’s under-19 team, he said he did not feel intimidated when he first arrived in Kazan.

“The welcome I got in Russia was quite good and strange at the same time because you were going to a country where people are not used to black people,” he explained.

“At that time I had dreadlocks so they wanted to touch my hair and see if it’s real or how does it grow to be this shape and this colour.

“So I had to do a lot of explanations on how I got my hair to look like that. They were just interested to know an African.”

Joe Cole Appointed Assistant Coach At Tampa Bay Rowdies FC

Featured Image

Former Chelsea and current Tampa Bay Rowdies midfielder Joe Cole has taken on additional duties as an assistant coach for the team, though his main role will still be as a player for the American second-tier team, the club announced Friday.

Joe Cole moved to the Rowdies in 2016 after a short stint with Coventry, winning three Premier League titles and earning 56 caps for England in a glittering playing career.

Cole is in the process of earning his UEFA A coaching licence and will assume his new responsibilities immediately.

“I’m very excited to start this chapter of my career with the Rowdies,” Cole said. “I have a lot of experience to pass on to the players and I want to play a role in elevating this club to new heights. My primary role is still to play on the field, but I’m very excited to step into coaching as well.”

Rowdies head coach Neill Collins said he will continue to be an important part of the Rowdies playing and now coaching staff.

“Joe has an incredible store of knowledge about the game to share with our young players and with our coaching staff,” he said. “One of the main provisos of me taking the head coaching job a few weeks ago was that I wanted to open an avenue for Joe to share that knowledge as an assistant coach.

“Though he is now a member of the coaching staff as well, Joe’s primary role will remain as a player for the Rowdies.”

Chairman & CEO Bill Edwards believes the appointment will make a big difference to the club.

“When we brought Joe to the Rowdies in 2016, we knew that his experience and knowledge of the game would help the club grow exponentially,” he said. “When Neill was appointed the head coach, he mentioned how important Joe is for the team both on and off the pitch. Having Joe assist in coaching will benefit everyone in the organization.”

Big Changes Made To The Carabao Cup Ahead Of Next Season

Featured Image

League Cup matches will now immediately go straight to penalties if the scores are level at the end of 90 minutes from the coming season after clubs voted to remove extra time, the English Football League (EFL) said on Friday.

The EFL said the withdrawal of the extra 30 minutes of play would help ease the burden on players during midweek cup matches by reducing fatigue.

Penalty shootouts will revert to the traditional format in which teams alternate their spot-kicks, the ruling body said, after last season’s competition trialled an ABBA forma where team A would take the first penalty, team B the second and third, team A the fourth and fifth and so on.

However, shootouts will revert to the traditional format in which teams alternate their spot-kicks, the ruling body said.

Clubs will also no longer receive seedings in the first two rounds of the tournament, while all League Cup fixtures at Premier League grounds will have Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology.

The VAR system, which will be used at the World Cup in Russia, was trialled in one of the recent semifinals between Chelsea and Arsenal, and in the final when the Gunners faced Manchester City.

Former President Obasanjo Raises Alarm Over His Safety, Says President Buhari Plans To Send Him To Jail

Featured Image
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has announced that he has been placed on security watchlist and that his safety can no longer be guaranteed.
The former president noted that the present administration wanted to blackmail him into abandoning his divine mandate to protect the rights of Nigerians to a better life. Obasanjo made these allegations in a statement signed by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Friday in Abeokuta.
Speaking via Akinyemi, Obasanjo said plans to silence him were in two fold, among which is a plot to cause the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to reopen investigation into the activities of his administration. He added that the Buhari administration had also perfected a plan to use fake documents and witnesses against him.
“Since Chief Olusegun Obasanjo declared in his State-of-the-Nation Special Statement on January 23, 2018, the desperation to frustrate, intimidate and blackmail him into abandoning his divine mandate to protect the rights of the people to better life and living continued unabated and has even taken a bizarre dimension,” the statement said.
Read more from the statement below

“Impeccable security sources have alleged Chief Obasanjo’s name is on their Watch List and that the security of his life cannot be guaranteed. According to these informants, many of who are in the top echelon of the Nation’s security management and close to the corridors of power, the operatives are daily perfecting how to curtail the personal liberties of the former President and hang a crime on him.

‘Ordinarily, we would not have dignified these reports with a response but for the fact that many of these informants are not known for flippant and frivolous talks. Secondly, this Government has demonstrably exhibited apathy, and in some cases, encouraged by its conduct, daily loss of lives and property in many States of the country, the office cannot be indifferent.

We are currently in a nation where the Number Three citizen is currently being harangued and the Number Four citizen is facing similar threat within the same Government they serve. There is a groundswell of our nationals that live in fear that they could be hounded, harassed, maimed or even killed as the battle for 2019 takes this worrisome dimension.

For Chief Obasanjo, this is a joke carried too far and being someone who do not act on unofficial information, he had cautioned all informants and adopted a wait-and-see attitude to the bestial propositions allegedly being contemplated to cow, cage and embarrass him.

The content of the alleged beastly designs, it was learnt are two-fold for now. One, to seize his International Passport and clamp him into detention indefinitely, in order to prevent him from further expressing angst on the pervasive mediocrity in the quality of governance, economic management and in the protection of lives and property by the Government.

But, since that could expose the Government to a swath of international condemnation, embarrassment and outrage, it is said that another plot being hatched is to cause the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to re-open investigation into the activities of Chief Obasanjo’s administration using false witnesses and documents. This will be a re-enactment of the Abacha era in which Chief Obasanjo was one of the principal victims’.

‘The same EFCC that had conducted a clinical investigation on the activities of Obasanjo in and out of Government, it was said, would now be made to stand down the existing report that gave Chief Obasanjo a clean bill of health on the probes are now to get him indicted, fair or foul for possible prosecution and persecution like it is being done to real and perceived opponents, enemies and critics of this Government’

‘Dissent is a fundamental principle on which liberal democracy is predicated. A true democrat must be ready to live with and accommodate dissent and opposition. While it is regrettable how the Government has sunk in its shameless desperation to cow opposition, a resort to blackmail, despotism and Gestapo-tactics being employed by the goons of this Government would not hold water. And no government ever remains in power forever.

‘For the record, Chief Obasanjo reiterates his readiness to face probe again after that of the House of Representatives, the Senate, the ICPC, and the EFCC, but before an independent, objective and credible panel of enquiry to account for his stewardship in Government and beyond’.

‘Chief Obasanjo reiterates that he has taken a principled position to ensure that the ship of the Nigerian State does not capsize and he remains steadfast in his resolve to turn the tide of maladministration, poor economic management and rudderless governance model that has tore Nigerians apart on account of religion and ethnicity which is a great threat to our democracy’.

‘We would like the Government and its supporters to understand that no amount of campaign of calumny, no matter how well contrived, orchestrated or marketed would deter Chief Obasanjo from calling a spade by its name. Chief Obasanjo is a patriot whose sole agenda is to ensure that the country’s unity, progress and democracy are not negotiated on the altar of incompetence and provincialism and mediocrity.

‘It is important to point out that Chief Obasanjo is one former President and Head of State who has engaged the current administration privately and in a bilateral manner on several issues of direct interest to the government and other matters of national concern. That channel of private engagement remains open and continues. However, should there be the need for public engagement, the right to free speech will always be exercised and jealously guarded, again in the best interest of Nigeria and the government.”

Ghana Dissolves Football Association Amid Cash Gifts Scandal

Featured Image

The government of Ghana has announced the dissolution of the country’s Football Association (GFA) amid allegations of corruption and bribery.

Ghana president Nana Akufo-Addo made the decision on Thursday, June 7, after footage emerged from a documentary allegedly uncovering fraud and corruption under the leadership of GFA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Nyantakyi was filmed accepting a cash gift from Aremayaw Anas, a Ghanaian undercover reporter.

The GFA president was also heard in the video requesting $11 million from Anas and later placing the $65,000 (£48,000) “shopping money” inside a black plastic bag.

Anas, an undercover reporter, pretended to be a businessman from a Middle Eastern company seeking to invest in Ghanaian football.

Ghana’s information minister, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, said the government has “decided to take immediate steps to have the GFA (Ghana Football Association) dissolved,” citing the “widespread nature of the apparent rot”.

Hamid said interim measures to govern Ghanaian football would be announced, pending the formation of a new association.

The GFA said in a statement that it would cooperate with any investigation.

Read press release below:

GFA STATEMENT ON DOCUMENTARY BY TIGER EYE ON ALLEGED ACTS OF CORRUPTION

The Ghana Football Association (GFA)’s attention has been drawn to the airing of a documentary by Tiger Eye PI alleging acts of corruption by some match officials and senior officials of the federation.

The Gfa was not provided with an opportunity to watch the premiering of the documentary as it was neither provided with an advanced copy of the said documentary nor furnished with tickets by Tiger Eye PI to watch the airing.

Though the GFA did not commission Tiger Eye PI to undertake this exercise and have not been provided with the opportunity of watching the documentary, we view the allegations circulating in the media very seriously and would wish to take immediate steps to address them.

To this end we believe its only fair and proper that Tiger Eye furnishes us with the said documentary and hereby request Tiger Eye as a matter of urgency to furnish us with all the recorded material on this documentary to enable us forward it to the appropriate quarters for further investigations.

The GFA wishes to emphasise that it is an association incorporated under the laws of Ghana and as such governed by the laws of Ghana as well as its own Rules and Regulations. It is also affiliated to CAF and FIFA

The GFA wishes to place on record that, there will be no attempt of a cover-up or shield any of our members caught in alleged acts of corruption.

The GFA wishes to assure all that as an institution it does not condone any manner of corrupt practices.

We wish to put on record that eight months ago, we got evidence of some external influences seeking to manipulate matches in our various competitions.

As soon as it became clear to us that we were facing the possibility of some external influences seeking to destroy the sanctity of the game in Ghana, we wrote to FIFA seeking assistance to help combat this menace.

The action we took was in furtherance of the GFA’s desire to fight against match manipulation and maintain the integrity of our game and federation.

We received a full FIFA response few days later, with an action plan on how we can fight the menace of match manipulation through a roadmap for the implementation of the national integrity initiative.

We are still working with FIFA Integrity Department to find the appropriate dates for the action to help educate our members on the dangers of this menace.

The GFA will subsequently be undertaking a holistic review and continue with our reforms geared towards the enhancement of its operations in dealing with alleged acts of corruption in the game.

We urge the football fraternity to remain calm and provide us with all the support we need as we bid to restore confidence and trust in our beautiful game.

We ask anyone with information about these allegations to get in touch with us through: info@ghanafa.org

The official video for the Fifa 2018 World Cup song – ‘Live It Up’ – has been released featuring superstar Will Smith, DJ Nicky Jam and Kosovar singer Era Istrefi.

The video shows footage from previous World Cup tournaments and more of fans of each of the 32 qualified World Cup nations and a cheeky cameo from Ronaldinho who (kinda) reenacts his famous second-round goal against England in the 2002 World Cup tournament, curling a 35-yard free kick over David Seaman.

Movie Review: Rule Number 1

Movie Review: Rule Number 1

For the sake of quality, I started writing in the cinema hall. It is amazing how much one can get done during those wait time we often ignore; Inside danfo, on a queue, toilet, over a meal, at the back of your car seat, inside holdup (peculiar to Lagos).

***

There are quite a number of Nigerian movies in the cinema in this season and even more to come. Last weekend, I saw Rule Number 1. Released in the cinema on Friday 1st of June, Rule Number 1 is definitely an enjoyable one. Contrary to what I expected, the movie hall was scanty on a Sunday evening, 2 days after its release.

Rule No 1 is a 5-man act produced by AfurobiOluchi of Mogson- a Nigerian based movie production/rental firm and directed by Lyndsey Efejeku. The 1hr45min movie documents the life of two mid-age, single ladies; Tega and Stephanie played by Chinonso Young and Keira Hewatch respectively. You might remember them from Lekki housewives as Cleopatra and Peace.

Tega and Steph are childhood friends living together in their state of the heart apartment in a suburb of Lagos. Each with her uniqueness, going about life differently.

Steph, a carefree, bubbly, works as customer rep at a bank. Tega, a nerd, reclusive, indoorsy, computer engineer.

The two ladies lived an opposite life, peacefully, except for occasional yogurt fight, Tamuno- played by Bucci Franklin came along and they both had to deal with a fight that shook the foundation of their friendship.

The movie opened and saw Tega occupied on her computer while Steph dragged her tired self home from one of her overnight escapades. Well, not alone, with takeout and gist of course.  Seriously, movie producers should find another way to depict geeks and nerds besides backpack and glasses. I mean is that all about them? Tega, Steph’s roommate and best friend seems cool with her ways, the only person Steph’s life bothers is their nosey old unmarried neighbour – Mrs. Banke oh sorry Miss Banke.

The movie might have painted a negative picture on the role Steph played in the movie – Bank’s customer Rep. Her job guarantees meeting people in different social status, however, took this a notch to in the most unprofessional way. Is her role a flashlight on the life of Customer reps? Is it safe to generalize and conclude?

Movie cast now take advert unto a whole new level these days. While I was chilling with my friend the previous day, a tall guy approached us with fliers in hand asking us to go watch the movie under discourse. What will I see when I came to watch the movie, bam, he is the lead role and he’s out there canvassing for his work!?

Moving on, Steph and Tamuno met at what appears to be eatery. Apparently, the duo have met previously and Steph refused to give her contact. Fully bearded, smooth, “Jidenna look alike”, Tamuno is every bit a Fine wine (if you know what I mean). He is determined to woo her this time. The session didn’t take long as next 30 sec saw Steph retouching her makeup ready to leave.

Stephanie was told as a wild lady who doesn’t want to settle for a relationship and wouldn’t mind waltzing from end to another. While there are many of this “confirmed bachelorette” out there, Steph came off too easy. All she wants was to “have fun” while she can. She wouldn’t take money, ready to mingle with anyone, she is not ready to settle, I was confused, Tamuno who just slept with her was confused too. Sis, pick a side rolls eye

In equally same location separated by time zone, Tamuno was begging his way into getting Tega’s contact. The night fought its way into the heart of the most indoorsy Tega who might have found a lover. Events played on the duo and by the end of the night, they both tripping. Like they both been waiting for that day, they immediately connected. The kind of connection you see in the first phase of a relationship. Where things just play out naturally and you a find yourself talking long with someone you just met

Too easy and predictable I would say. The way the connection was ignited like it has always been there.

Tamuno is seeing 2 friends at the same time wow, men are scum. Crys.

I love how they naturally styled Tega. The costumes were not only selected carefully, they were also well matched and I find the movie production A-game.

My best scene was when Tega and Tamuno sat together overlooking Eko bridge. Such a perfect scenery watching the views. The city was quiet and it was easy at that time to melt into the hand of your lover. For a moment there, I forgot something was wrong.

The girls showed me how to pass remote in the house effortlessly. Just fit it between your toe and stretch your leg. You might not want to try that with an African dad or mum. lol

Tamuno stays alone in a fine house moving calculatedly around the house throughout the movie.  Acclaimed son of a rich man living in a near-empty house, saved by a cold housekeeper. That I find too vain. There seemed to be no interaction outside the 2 girls he juggles. It didn’t own the place the way I would have expected.

I don’t get why Tamuno asks if he can kiss Tega whenever they are together. Probably Tega’s shyness?

Guys, what do you say to someone who says she hasn’t had sex before… Definitely not congratulations like Tamuno did lol.

Tega is a virgin. She hasn’t done this before. Steph gave Tega sex talk while she stares in disbelief, this is a grown as woman o.

Once you have a bite of it, baby girl, you going to want to come back. Rainy day, Tega finds herself going to Tamuno’s. He nervous too. She just wants to get it over with. Well, slow music, red bra, kisses, dark room muscles contrasting.

Here is how the concluding part of the movie went, the two girls found out they’ve been screwing the same Tamuno. They were pained briefly. Instead of diverting their hurt appropriately, they are more concerned about why he be dating the two of them.

The concluding scenes of rule no 1 I find rather too tacky and here is why. After the two girls found out they have been seeing the same guy, they invited him over. I was expecting a lot of emotions instead they chose to play around it. It made me think, hey, these girls are not serious either. At some point, they shift focus to who is superior and fit to be dated by Tamuno? A guy has been screwing you two and what you are bothered about is class comparison!?

If anyone felt the hurt, it was Tega.

Tega was more pained. She didn’t see it coming. She crying. She probably going to recoil back into her haven.  Overall, Rule Number 1 is a playful and relaxing movie but not to expect anything artistic. The hard work that was put into it production is evident.

The weekend is just around the corner, do support them.

Don’t forget to share and comment. I love comments. Ciao!

He adjourned the case till July 4 and ordered that the defendant be remanded at the Ikoyi Prison, pending when he is able to perfect his bail conditions.

Before We Kill Falz – Abayomi Ojo

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Last week, somewhere around the Ejigbo area of Lagos, I saw an Alajo (daily contributions-collector) stroll out of an olosho (commercial sex workers’) house. I am not one given to assumptions or hasty generalisations but she had a modesty so holy about her that my curiosity became insanely exacerbated. She wore no earrings, her hair was in simple braids, her skirt was loose and she had the countenance of a rapture-ready “born again” Christian.

I had to ask and after being assured that she was indeed a follower of Christ who also doubled as the licensed collector of daily contributions for the area Oloshos, I sank into a deep reflection. I wish I had asked if she was not conflicted about the seeming incompatibility of her religious views with the very business which produces the capital for her venture.

WATCH VIDEO: Falz – This Is Nigeria

When she dances towards the altar to drop her offering on the last Sunday of the month, does she feel a prick in her conscience? Does anything about the sermon from the pulpit cut deep through her very being or does it further serenade her perfected indifference about the “whatever-ness” of the source of the offerings she brings into the House of the Lord?

Her perfected indifference or the convenient separation of religious demands from her everyday life epitomises the high hypocrisy to be found in our general engagement with religion. It highlights the sad ironies in the sharp contrasts between our renowned national piety on the one hand and the glorification of graft and criminality on the other hand. It explains why we export so much of merchandised religiosity to the rest of the world but fail to retain a little of that to address some of our domestic maladies.

Diddy Hails Falz’s ‘This Is Nigeria’ Video

The veteran journalist, Uncle Jimi, recently joked on his radio show about how Nigeria is the only country in the world where you get on a bus and when someone suddenly says ‘Can we bow our heads for prayer’ on a Monday morning, everybody’s head lowers in obedience, including the driver’s!

Recently, Timi Dakolo ranted about an Abuja cleric who is supposed to be in jail for his alleged unholy exploitation of young girls and all hell broke loose. He was threatened, cautioned and warned about the sinfulness of chastising a “man of God”. Even the few comments in Dakolo’s support didn’t seem to have come from an analytical engagement with the alleged criminality in the cleric’s act but generally from the ‘it is well’ and ‘God will judge’ kind of mentality.

It is in the context of that blind, sheepish and largely ignorant engagement with religion that one finds the threat issued by The Muslim Rights Concern to musician Falz about his ‘This is Nigeria’ track very annoying and largely disturbing. The song, an imitation of an American song with a similar title, parodies the goings-on in a country fraught with a myriad of national challenges. It’s an effective attempt at a didactic satire in the hope that social consciousness will be awakened in a way which engenders meaningful conversations focused on leveraging effective strategies to combat our problems. The song clearly addresses the rampant insecurity, herdsmen killings, police brutality, youth restiveness, criminality and corruption in the land.

‘Yahoo Yahoo Not Normal’ – Falz Sheds Light On ‘This Is Nigeria’ Video (WATCH)

Unfortunately, rather than address the serious issues raised, the hoopla has been about the singer’s right to point out the issues and his alleged violation of certain religious sensibilities. The angst has been about Falz’s preferred costume and his “unholy” depiction of a certain tribe in the video. Do we hasten to condemn Boko Haram for using hijab-wearing young girls as suicide bombers with the same alacrity or rush to the plight of the victims of the senseless slaughters occurring daily in the Middle Belt? Why do we hasten with so much unchecked ignorance to defend the “God” who is more than capable of defending Himself but care less about the social injustice, oppression, wickedness and satanic exploitations going on around us?

It is time we got seriously talking about the issues militating against the country’s progress and stopped window-dressing or elevating religious preferences to frontal national issues. Political and religious leaders have looted the country and their congregations under the guise of religion for far too long, one would expect that we ought to have become enlightened enough to realise that continuing to travel a path which has hampered our national progress for this long is no longer tenable.

We must move consciously in the direction of reason so that when cogent issues are raised, we go beyond our religious biases to engage and analyse the issues so that after the reasoned distillation, we can retain refined points capable of launching us to national greatness.

Banky W Reacts To Chimamanda Adichie’s Comment On Men Holding Door For Women

Featured Image

EME boss, Banky W has reacted in disagreement to Chimamanda Adichie’s comment on men holding the door for women.

On Wednesday, Nigerian award-winning author, Chimamanda Adichie sparked a nationwide controversy following her comments on “The Daily Show” about men holding the door for women.

According to her, there are people who need the protection more because there are lots of women who are stronger than men.

In her words;

“I thing gestures like holding the door shouldn’t be gender-based. I think it’s a lovely thing to hold the door but we should hold the door for everyone.

Like, I hold the door for men and for women. And so I think the idea of someone holding the door for a woman because she’s a woman… I have trouble with it.

I’m quite happy for people to hold the door for me. But I’m like, hope they’re not doing it because of this sort of idea of chivalry. Because chivalry is really about the idea that women are somehow weak and need protecting. But we know that really, there are many women who are stronger than men”.

While speaking about women being perceived as weak and given preferential treatment in crisis situations, the writer said;

So really, what I think is that the people we should protect are people who need protecting, whether men or women. Which is also why I sort of have trouble with the idea of women and children. When women are classified in the same… I mean, when there’s a tragedy and we say, women and children should leave first. I think, actually, it’s the people who are weak, unwell, young… who should leave first.

Reacting to her comments Banky W is of the opinion that Chimamanda’s comment is ridiculous. He stated that Chilvary is most done not because some men see women as weaker sex but because they want to be gentlemanly romantic.

However, Banky W disagreed with writer’s argument about Hilary Clinton putting “Wife” first on her Twitter bio saying everyone is entitled to decide on the part of their life they want celebrate more.

On the police website, the names of the successful candidates were grouped according to their states.

The PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, had stated that each local government was allotted seven candidates, adding that the balance of 893 slots would be shared among the states.

“We are not shortchanging any state; the sharing formula ensures that each local government produces seven constables, while the remaining slots would be shared among the states.

“The sharing formula does not confer any advantage on any state or religion. The Chairman of the commission and JAMB have cleared the air on the inclusion of Arabic language in the examination. The candidates were supposed to write Use of English, the other (Arabic language) was just a dummy,” Ani explained.

2018 World Cup: Portugal Goalkeeper’s Wife Asks Coach To Let Players Touch Themselves Before World Cup Games

Featured Image

The wife of Portugal’s goalkeeper, Rui Patricio has urged the national team coach to allow the players to masturbate during the World Cup.

She believes the Portugese national team will have a better chance of success at the tournament if head coach Fernando Santos urges his players to masturbate.

Dr Vera Ribeiro, a psychologist who specialises in sexual matters, has published a book in which she examines the love lives of footballers. In the book titled ‘Manual of Seduction’, Dr Ribeiro argues that players will be able to cope with anxiety and stress much better during the tournament if they indulge themselves regularly.

She insists that “nothing positive comes from sexual abstinence” – and that forbidding players to make love before games also has a negative impact.

We can not associate sports performance with the occurrence of sex.”

Premier League Comfim Introduction Of Winter Break From 2019/2020 Season

Featured Image

A Two-week Premier League winter break will now be introduced from 2019-2020 season to help England during that summer’s European Championship and clubs competing in the Champions League.

The break will take place each season until 2022 initially, to coincide with the new television deals, and will start in February 2020. It will be structured so that there are still Premier League matches over every weekend – there will be five one weekend and five the following weekend with all the matches broadcast live in the UK – but every club will have guaranteed time off.

To help create space in the calendar the Football Association will move the FA Cup fifth round to midweek and there will be no replays. Drawn matches at 90 minutes will go to extra-time and penalties.

Replays will remain for the earlier rounds of the FA Cup because the third round in particular is regarded as vital to the competition with the possibility of ‘giant-killing’ fixtures which appeal to the TV audiences.

All three divisions of the Football League – the EFL – remain unchanged with full programmes of matches and, significantly, it will be written into the Premier League rulebook that clubs cannot fly off for lucrative exhibition matches during their break. Players will be given the time to rest and recover.

“This is not seen to be a way and won’t be [of making money],” said Martin Glenn, the chief executive of the Football Association. “The Premier League also feel strongly about it. This will be in their rules, so absolutely not. This has to be a player break.”

“We don’t know what the exact effect will be, but if you look at the other big nations they all have some kind of break which allows players to recover in the middle of an intense season,” Glenn said.

“There’s loads of anecdotal data that it’s going to be helpful as much for a mental break as anything else. I also think it’s as important for the Premier League teams competing in the Champions League as it will be for the England team.

“I think you will see England players better rested for Euro 2020 and hopefully we will see that in their performance, and continued improvement in the Champions League performance by English clubs.”

The issue was finally resolved after the FA agreed to give up a Saturday – when the FA Cup is traditionally played – and Glenn added: “We have never wanted to touch the third round and replays but we felt a movement in the fifth round was a price worth paying.

“What’s changed it is seeing a flexible way of doing it, where we give up a Saturday round in the FA Cup, the fifth round. That allows the Premier League to straddle one of their rounds over two weekends and that creates a 10-day break.

“There is nothing as intense as an English Premier League season, with 38 games and all count for something. The hope is that players will be more mentally rested, which makes them fresher, which you will see in, from an England point of view, hopefully going into end of season tournaments with a bit more verve and vim.

“And, as importantly, the reason the Premier League clubs are so keen on it is that in the Champions League knockout stage, where we’ve not been great over the past few years, hopefully that can help.”
