PFA seeking talks with Premier League, EFL over coronavirus

Posted in bacbbpks on May 14th, 2020

first_imgThe Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has called for urgent talks with the Premier League and English Football League to discuss the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.With English football suspended until at least April 30, the loss of matchday revenue has hit the clubs hard, especially in the lower leagues.On Tuesday, Birmingham became the first Championship side to ask their players to take wage deferrals, while League Two’s Forest Green Rovers said they will use the government’s wage-support scheme to keep paying all their staff.“As with other industries, the current COVID-19 crisis is having a severe impact on the finances of the game,” the PFA said in a statement“Several clubs have already approached players with a view to imposing pay deferrals.“In order to deal with this situation, we have called for an urgent meeting with both the Premier League and the EFL to discuss how we might proceed going forward.”Earlier this month, the EFL announced it would release a 50 million pounds ($59.15 million) short-term relief fund to assist clubs whose survival is under threat.The PFA also said it had worked closely with the Premier League, EFL and Women’s Super League on training protocols to minimise the risk posed by the coronavirus outbreak.last_img read more

Pacquiao willing to fight McGregor

Posted in bacbbpks on January 20th, 2020

first_imgMOST READ “If McGregor will fight me in boxing, why not? But not in MMA. MMA is much different than boxing,” a spokesman quoted Pacquiao as saying a few days ago.“The fight can be at the 140-pound weight division. My normal weight when I’m not on training is just 141 or 142 pounds,” he said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony? SC rules in favor of Espinosa, orders promoter heirs to pay boxing legendSPORTSBreak new groundSPORTSMcGregor blasts Cerrone in 40 seconds in UFC returnBoth Pacquiao, 38, and McGregor, 28, have been trying to lure the retired Mayweather back into the boxing ring.For Pacquiao, it would be a chance to avenge his defeat to Mayweather at their long-awaited showdown in 2015. The Filipino southpaw had briefly retired from the ring after beating American Tim Bradley in Las Vegas in April but soon made a comeback, saying he still felt like a youngster.In his last fight in November, Pacquiao reclaimed the World Boxing Organization welterweight title for the third time with a unanimous-decision victory over former champion Jesse Vargas in Las Vegas.Pacquiao has been engaged in ongoing talks with his American promoter about a possible fight with Australian Jeff Horn later this year.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Meanwhile Ireland’s McGregor, the first man to simultaneously hold Ultimate Fighting Championship titles in two weight divisions, has floated the idea of taking on the undefeated Mayweather, 39.In late November McGregor was issued a boxing license in the state of California in a development that fueled speculation about a future showdown with Mayweather.Mayweather told ESPN’s First Take programme that a McGregor bout was the only thing that could tempt him back into the ring.UFC boss Dana White also added further fuel to the fire this month when he offered to pay each $25 million, along with a cut of pay-per-view proceeds, to fight — an offer that Mayweather later batted down.Pacquiao has previously parlayed his sporting fame into a career in politics, getting elected to the influential Philippine Senate last year while still continuing to box professionally.ADVERTISEMENT View comments SpaceX launches, destroys rocket in astronaut escape test Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao raises his WBO welterweight championship belt during a news conference upon arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay city, southeast of Manila, Philippines.

Liverpool line-up v Man City: Coutinho and Markovic back for Reds’ crunch clash

Posted in bacbbpks on January 3rd, 2020

first_imgLiverpool boss Brendan Rodgers lamented a ‘lack of creativity’ for his side’s Europa League exit to Besiktas, but he will hope they can rediscover it in time for Sunday’s huge clash against Manchester City – live and exclusive on talkSPORT, from 12pm.The Reds were missing a number of key personnel for the shootout defeat in Turkey, with Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and Mamadou Sakho left back on Merseyside to prepare for the weekend’s fixture and while some questioned Rodgers’ decision to do so, it could prove to be a masterstroke.The trio are fully expected to make the first XI, but who else will play alongside them?talkSPORT takes a look… GoalkeeperWith little in the way of alternative, Simon Mignolet will remain in goal for the Redmen.DefenceWhile Rodgers may be tempted to give Dejan Lovren the chance to make amends for his missed spot-kick, it seems likely that the Kop boss will return to his current favoured trio of Sakho, Martin Skrtel and Emre Can, the latter of whom was moved into midfield against Besiktas.MidfieldHenderson is nailed on to regain his spot in the heart of midfield, and is tipped to be joined by Joe Allen. Alberto Moreno will likely retain his position on the left, with Lazar Markovic heavily backed to replace Jordon Ibe on the right.AttackMario Balotelli was a surprise selection alongside Daniel Sturridge for the Europa League defeat, but it seems unlikely that Rodgers will retain two up front for the visit of Man City. Expect to see Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling playing behind Sturridge.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Man City?

first_imgFOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5KWith so many people starting a couch-to-5k training plan it’s worth ensuring you have good nutritional backup to fuel your energy as well as your enthusiasm.This doesn’t have to be complicated. Swapping a few of your usual foods for more healthy options will make a difference in the long run. Sorry! How many times have you read the importance of planning a weekly menu? Yeah, I found this advice pointless as well.Dinner for us depends a lot on the weather, the time you arrive home and how quickly you’ve to drop someone off to music practice or football.More important are the store cupboard essentials- pasta sauces, brown rice, wholewheat pasta, eggs, cheese and, yes, lentils.Quick meal ideas can include a Dahl, wholewheat pitta with brown rice, omelette with peppers and ham or pasta with a tomato-based sauce. More substantial snacks can include french toast, crepes stuffed with cheese and mushroom, toasties with salad. More calorific but delicious is a single warm croissant with melted cheese and tomato. Always be aware of your portion size.Don’t knock frozen veg- frozen spinach and peas are also good staples to have on hand.So try substituting brown for white bread and semi-skimmed milk for full fat milk.When it comes to exercise, avoid having a large meal within two hours of your run.A light snack, such as a banana, a bagel with peanut butter or some toast prior to running is fine. Make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day to avoid dehydration.Water is usually enough for low-intensity exercise up to 50 minutes. For higher-intensity exercise lasting more than 50 minutes, or lower-intensity exercise lasting more than an hour, a sports drink will help maintain energy levels and the salt helps to keep you hydrated.Food and drink also plays a part in recovering effectively from training. When you finish training, aim to have a carbohydrate-rich food or drink within 30 minutes.Snacks are important when you’re training. After a work out it is very tempting to reach for the crisps and chocolate bar and flop on the sofa with a mug of tea. Make a point of leaving good snacks on the kitchen table – cereal bars, small bag of popcorn, oranges (easy peel or there’s no chance) or even a square of dark chocolate. If you’re going to eat seeds or nuts, a small handful is enough.Make sure your nutrition complements your training or you’re gonna need a bigger couch.LIFESTYLE: FOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5K was last modified: July 2nd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:LIFESTYLE: FOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5Klast_img read more
