Everton was best choice – Lukaku

first_img Press Association The Belgium striker was taken by surprise when Chelsea told him he could join another club for a second season running. West Brom, who he had a successful stint with last season, soon joined the running for his signature, but a chat with Martinez and Mirallas – in camp with Lukaku at the time – made up the 20-year-old’s mind. New loan signing Romelu Lukaku revealed a long conversation with manager Roberto Martinez and international team-mate Kevin Mirallas made it an easy decision to join Everton on transfer deadline day. “My goal is to hold the World Cup and be a good striker for Chelsea in the future. This is a fresh start and a new challenge for me.” For as pleased as Lukaku was to head to Everton, Mirallas was just as happy to welcome him. “I was with Romelu in his room at the team hotel on Monday night and I only left when I was sure he was joining us,’ the forward told reporters. “I was surprised to learn we were in for him, because there had been no inkling, but once I got word, I really went to work. ‘I just tried to convince him that Everton was the right step to take and he would love it at Goodison, and I’m really pleased he took it on board.” Mirallas did bid farewell to a fellow countryman, though, as Marouane Fellaini moved to Manchester United for £27.5million, with Everton insisting they will receive the full amount from the Red Devils, despite reports suggesting the fee was lower due to the midfielder sacrificing £4million of loyalty bonuses. Unlike Lukaku’s unexpected arrival, Mirallas said the only real surprise about Fellaini’s move was it was so last minute. “There have been stories about Marouane leaving since June, so it is perhaps surprising it only happened on the last day,” he added. “We will miss him, but you have to say he has certainly earned his dream transfer.” Martinez is looking forward to working with Lukaku, whom he hopes will give his forward line a much-needed injection of goals. “He’s still a young man but he’s got everything,” the Spaniard told evertontv. “It’s going to be really exciting to see Romelu developing and growing and if he can do that in an Everton shirt, he’s going to bring a lot of smiles to all our fans. It’s an exciting period for everyone.” “It was a crazy evening. I was sitting in my hotel room in Brussels when the phone went to tell me I was going out on loan again. It was 7pm, and that was the first I knew of it,” said Lukaku, who spoke to the Belgian media as part of the build-up to Friday’s match in Glasgow. “There had not been a mention of it before then, but after speaking to my parents, I decided to take the plunge. “Different clubs called me and I had to take the right decision. Roberto Martinez called me for 30 minutes and explained me what he expects from me. “I decided that Everton was the best choice. They are a more prominent club than West Brom, where I had a good time. The important thing, at 20, is to be playing, and while West Brom was an option, Everton was a better one. “I’ve also known Kevin Mirallas since I was 14, and that should help. We talked about [the loan move] and I am looking forward to playing.” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had indicated when taking the job for a second time that Lukaku was in his plans. The striker played in Friday’s European Super Cup loss to Bayern Munich – missing the crucial penalty – but has been deemed surplus to requirements for now. “The conversation I had with Jose Mourinho remains confidential. I could stay at Chelsea but it’s important at my age to play a lot,” he added. last_img read more

Titania among Coronation 18

first_img The Charlie Hills-trained Kiyoshi is another filly who has not been seen in competitive action since her juvenile days, while Clive Brittain’s Rizeena will aim to bounce back from her slightly disappointing effort on the Rowley Mile early last month. There is international interest, too, with American trainer Kenny McPeek sending Rosalind on a transAtlantic mission. Jean-Claude Rouget’s Lesstalk In Paris, Alain de Royer-Dupre’s Veda and Andre Fabre’s 1000 Guineas winner Miss France are all in contention, although the latter looks set to run in the French Oaks instead. Amazing Maria, Euro Charline and J Wonder remain in the mix. Bracelet and Tapestry are Aidan O’Brien’s two remaining contenders, while the Olly Stevens-trained Lightning Thunder takes top billing having filled the runner-up spot in both the English and Irish 1000 Guineas this season. George Margarson has given Lucky Kristale the green light after his stable star worked “exceptionally well” in a crucial gallop on Saturday morning. Last year’s Duchess Of Cambridge and Lowther Stakes winner disappointed on her seasonal reappearance in the 1000 Guineas, running away with Tom Queally in the early stages before predictably weakening. Margarson is adamant his filly is better than she showed on the Rowley Mile and expects a much improved display next Friday. The trainer said: “Jimmy Quinn rode her and she worked exceptionally well. She worked with two 95-plus-rated older horses and it was certainly the best bit of work she’s done this year. It was probably as well as she’s ever worked. “Jimmy was very positive about her, so much so he asked if he could ride her next week, but as we all know she’s Tom Queally’s ride and he’ll be on board next week, all being well. “Tom never rode her work last year. He only rode her on the racecourse and she’s a different horse when she goes racing to what she is at home. “We couldn’t be more pleased and it’s all systems go for the Coronation now. She’s also entered in the Jersey Stakes, but the Coronation is the plan.” My Titania is set to make her belated seasonal reappearance in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot next Friday after 18 fillies were confirmed for the Group One contest. Press Association John Oxx’s charge missed the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket after suffering a setback and the Irish equivalent on account of the testing conditions. The daughter of Sea The Stars has not been seen in racecourse action since she won the Group Three Park Stakes at the Curragh last September. last_img read more

Irvine not worried by Olsson form

first_img The defender has made costly mistakes in the Baggies’ last two games with his position under threat as Joleon Lescott nears a return from a knee injury ahead of Sunday’s Barclay’s Premier League trip to Tottenham. Olsson’s gaffes cost goals in defeats to Swansea and Everton but Irvine has backed the Sweden international to recover. Head coach Alan Irvine has defended under-fire Jonas Olsson and insisted he should not be hung out to dry at West Brom. Press Associationcenter_img He said: “I’d like to think that Jonas’ career would be judged over a long period rather than a couple of games. “Before I got here he was a player that I admired, a player I always thought played well whenever we were against West Brom. “He’s an international player, he’s played hundreds of games and he’s played really well without making mistakes. “I don’t think we can necessarily look at two mistakes in two games as being the start of a worrying trend.” Albion go to White Hart Lane winless in the league this season and second bottom in the early table. Ben Foster’s error also gifted Kevin Mirallas a goal in Everton’s 2-0 win at The Hawthorns last week and Irvine issued his support to the England goalkeeper. “He came in and immediately apologised to everybody,” he said. “It’s a mistake that you don’t see him making and you wouldn’t expect to see him making for another 100 games, so it’s one of those things. “It was terrible timing for us, it made it extremely difficult for us to get back into the game and he knows that. “But I can’t go slamming Ben Foster for making a mistake, because we all make them. He made good saves after that.” last_img read more

USC to provide scholarships to Syrian students

first_imgAnthony Bailey, vice president for strategic and global initiatives, and Elizabeth A. Graddy, vice provost of academic and faculty affairs, issued a memorandum Friday advocating for USC’s further involvement in the support of Syrian scholars and students.The Provost accepted the Graduate Student Government Senate’s request for USC to become a member of the Institute of International Education’s Syria Consortium for Higher Education in Crisis.Beside joining the consortium, USC will devote itself to “providing scholarships each academic year for at least three Syrian students who meet the standards for admission to the university,” according to the memorandum.Among USC’s other efforts in providing educational opportunities to endangered scholars, as mentioned in the statement, are its membership in Scholars at Risk and the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund.GSG released its resolution advocating for USC to join the Consortium in October 2015, stating that in light of the fact that “the Syrian Civil War is in its fifth year, and there is no indication that a peaceful resolution to the conflict is forthcoming,” and that since many other American universities have made the effort to join the Consortium, it is USC’s core values that “compel it to act in solidarity with Syrian students and scholars.”The Institute of International Education was founded in 1919 and has dedicated itself to providing advanced education opportunities around the world through scholarships, policy discussion and “protecting scholarship around the world,” according to their website.The IIE Syria Consortium has declared a state of academic emergency in the wake of the crisis in Syria, urging universities to provide scholarships to Syrian students.In the memo, Dean of Religious Life Varun Soni was named as the liaison between the University and incoming Syrian students in order to “cultivate a safe haven for these displaced scholars and students,” while also striving to “afford them every opportunity to succeed in their academic endeavors here.”“This is a worthy cause and one that is consistent with our values and our goal of becoming the leading private institution dedicated to the global public good,” Bailey and Graddy said in the memo. “We are dedicated to continuing our important work with Scholars at Risk and the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund to help secure placements for these academics, as appropriate.”last_img read more

‘Is Tom Brady a Cheater?’ 10-year-old wins school science fair questioning Patriots QB

first_imgAce Davis, 10, is moving onto districts after winning his school’s science fair with a ground-breaking science experiment. His project was titled “Is Tom Brady a Cheater?” Davis’ experiment included graphs, photos and extensive research into the Patriots’ infamous Deflategate controversy.  In the 2014-15 AFC Championship, the Patriots defeated the Colts to advance to Super Bowl 49. Brady was accused of ordering the footballs used in that game to be deflated to give the Patriots an advantage. New England was found guilty of doctoring the game balls and the team was fined a million dollars, lost two draft picks and the quarterback was suspended four games for his involvement, a sentence he didn’t serve until the 2016 season.Davis’ conclusion?
