Chelsea initiate contacts for big midfield signing – Makelele helping Blues…

first_imgThe approach to every transfer window in recent years has seen many rumours around the future of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Both Manchester clubs have been credited with an interest in the Lazio player, and Tuesday saw a report that Jose Mourinho is also keen on the signing for Tottenham. Now it’s Chelsea’s turn to enter the picture, and Le10Sport bring claims on Wednesday regarding the Blues and their interest in the midfielder. It’s explained PSG are keen and have already made an offer of €60m, a figure they don’t want to push upwards.Lazio aren’t keen on agreeing to a sale at this stage, because they want to make sure they have their player fully focused until the end of the current season.According to the claims from France, Chelsea have initiated contact with the midfielder’s representatives recently. They’re being helped by their former player Claude Makelele, who is described as working as an advisor to those in charge at the London club.Milinkovic-Savic is represented by Mateja Kezman, who has previously played with Makelele, and it’s suggested that connection could help Chelsea in the transfer race.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Timing is right for Guillaume at Kennedale Showdown

first_imgKENNEDALE, Texas (Oct. 3) – Timing was everything for Matt Guillaume.The leader of the Kennedale Speedway Park Showdown main event for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Guillaume left his preferred line to pass a slower car late in the contest, then led Jeff Emerson in the race to the checkers.“There was a late caution with about three laps to go,” said Guillaume, who took home a $1,500 share of the purse, plus a $300 bonus from Chase Allen Motorsports. “There was a lapped car in the same line I was running but I was able to sneak by him in the center if the first set of turns.”The new Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier, twice a winner during his rookie Modified campaign, was three car lengths ahead of Emerson at the finish. Justin McCoy, Dean Abbey and John Gober completed the top five.Guillaume had started outside row four in the 25-lapper and was in the lead for good by the fifth circuit.Chad Wilson repeated his winning ways in the IMCA Eagle Motorsports RaceSaver Sprint Car main while Dennis Bissonnette, runner-up each of the last two years, topped the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature.Jeffrey Abbey led early, then got the front spot back when Jacob Pirkle broke on the white flag lap in the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod feature.All three victories were good for $1,500. Bissonnette also pocketed a $100 bonus from WCH En­gines.Wilson, the 2015 national champion, started on the pole and led every lap of the Sprint Car fea­ture. He led by more than half a straightaway before catching up with the back of the field; Jeb Sessums made up ground over the last five laps and ended just two car lengths off the pace.George White, Claud Estes III and Emerson were next across the stripe.Abbey led the first four laps of the Southern SportMod feature before Pirkle powered past. Abbey had caught up in lapped traffic before a caution came out, then ducked inside and back in front as Pirkle broke on the last lap.Second went to Jake Upchurch. Luke Fritchen, Tory Yant and Jeremy Carter completed the top five.Bissonnette was also the flag-to-flag leader, in a contest shortened due to the time limit.

No more bomb threats

first_imgDear Editor,The new and emerging trend of bomb threats must be dealt with expeditiously and with some level of exigence. As a concerned citizen, student of the University of Guyana and employed within the semi-antonymous business field, I am calling on the relevant authorities – Guyana Police Force – to look into the root causes of such threats.I am concerned not just for the lives of innocent people, but particularly the thousands of student who were expose to the recent threats at the Nation’s University, QC, Bishops’ High, and most recently, the University of Guyana.These unlawful pranks appear to have some level of sequential pattern, which leads to the question; who is next?I also wish to suggest that all vulnerable and endangered Government agencies and Private Sector organisations/businesses, such as GPL Inc, the GRA, GWI must tighten their security checkpoints for the safety of their employees.Sincerely,DS McFarlanelast_img read more
