Aguero banned four games, Fernandinho gets three!

The English FA have confirmed that Manchester City duo Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho will be banned for four and three games respectively after being sent off late in the 3-1 defeat against Chelsea last weekend.

Aguero, 28, lunged in on David Luiz and was shown a straight red card for the tackle (if you can even call it that) and Fernandinho, 31, was sent off in the ensuing melee as he pushed Cesc Fabregas repeatedly and grabbed him around the throat.

n the case of Aguero, he would have already been banned for three games but his punishment has been extended by an extra game due to his suspended three-game ban which he received for elbowing West Ham’s Winston Reid back in August.

As for Fernandinho, he has been handed the standard three-game ban for being sent off for violent conduct.

Pep Guardiola’s City ended the game with nine-men against Chelsea and looked frustrated after blowing a 1-0 half time lead as they lost 3-1 against the Premier League leaders.

Without Aguero and Fernandinho, their upcoming games against Leicester, Watford and Arsenal are now looking very difficult, plus Nicolas Otamendi will be unavailable against Leicester this Saturday (Watch live, 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com) due to picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.

With regards to the melee at the end of Chelsea’s win at City, it is expected the FA may fine both teams for their actions and Fabregas could also be implicated as some camera angles appeared to show him striking Fernandinho in the face first.

Let’s wait and see.

As for City, injuries and suspension are adding up and they’re now four points behind leaders Chelsea, plus they’ll have to do without their leading score Aguero who has 10 of their 30 goals in the Premier League.

A chance has now arrived for City’s only other central striker as 20-year-old Kelechi Iheanacho will likely be given the opportunity to lead the line, or if not Nolito or Kevin De Bruyne may operate as the highest player in a false nine formation.

Dr. Ben Carson nominated as the next secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development

494724942-presidential-candidates-donald-trump-and-ben-carson-jpg-crop-promo-xlarge2Dr. Ben Carson will be nominated as the next secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Trump transition team announced Monday.

“I am thrilled to nominate Dr. Ben Carson as our next Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development,” President-elect Donald Trump said in a statement.
“Ben Carson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities. We have talked at length about my urban renewal agenda and our message of economic revival, very much including our inner cities. Ben shares my optimism about the future of our country and is part of ensuring that this is a Presidency representing all Americans. He is a tough competitor and never gives up.”
The secretary of housing and urban development oversees federal public housing programs and helps formulate policy on homelessness and housing discrimination. As is the case with all cabinet secretaries, Carson needs to be confirmed by the Senate.
Carson had signaled he would be named to the job Wednesday afternoon, posting on Facebook that an announcement about his forthcoming role in the administration was forthcoming.
“After serious discussions with the Trump transition team, I feel that I can make a significant contribution particularly to making our inner cities great for everyone,” Carson wrote. “We have much work to do in strengthening every aspect of our nation and ensuring that both our physical infrastructure and our spiritual infrastructure is solid.”
Trump praised Carson as a “greatly talented person” in a tweet two weeks ago when he said he was considering Carson for the HUD position.
“I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I’ve gotten to know him well — he’s a greatly talented person who loves people!” Trump tweeted.
Carson’s name had been attached to multiple cabinet-level positions throughout the transition process, most significantly the position of Health and Human Services secretary. But, according to Carson aide Armstrong Williams, the veteran neurosurgeon turned down an offer of that position due to his lack of experience running a federal agency.
“He’s never run an agency and it’s a lot to ask. He’s a neophyte and that’s not his strength,” Williams said.
Trump promised during his campaign to prioritize the restoration of America’s inner cities, though he frequently courted controversy by using exaggerated rhetoric that painted a bleak portrait of minority communities.
“The violence. The death. The lack of education. No jobs. We’re going to work with the African-American community and we’re going to solve the problem of the inner city,” Trump said at a rally in Toledo, Ohio, in October. “We’re going to bring safety back. You can’t walk out the street, you buy a loaf of bread and you end up getting shot. So we’re going to work very strongly with the African American community.”
Carson was one of the large field of Republican presidential candidates. He enjoyed an early surge in the polls after he announced his campaign in May 2015 and ran mostly on his biography rather than policy. He bowed out of the race after a disappointing finish on Super Tuesday.
Carson admits that he had a violent temper in his youth, and says one of the defining moments of his life occurred when he was 14. Carson said he tried to stab a schoolmate, but the boy’s belt buckle blocked the knife. After praying for three hours, Carson “came to an understanding that to lash out at people is not a sign of strength, it was a sign of weakness.” A CNN report raised questions about Carson’s claims that he was violent and angry as a teenager.
When Carson — a famed neurosurgeon — became the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins at age 33, he became the youngest person to head a major division in the hospital’s history. His parents separated when he was eight, after it was revealed his father was a bigamist. He and his brother were raised by their mother.
Carson is known for offering provocative commentary on a wide range of issues, including comparing the modern American government to Nazi Germany in a March 2014 interview with Breitbart, and saying at the Voter Values Summit in 2013 that Obamacare is “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.”
Carson’s unsuccessful primary campaign was punctuated by rookie blunders and odd claims, including that the Egyptian pyramids were used to store grain. “The pyramids were made in a way that they had hermetically sealed compartments,” he said. “You wouldn’t need hermetically sealed compartments for a sepulcher. You would need that if you were trying to preserve grain for a long period of time.”
During their primary fight, Trump derided Carson as “super low energy” and delivered a number of sharp attacks on Twitter, questioning Carson’s temperament and qualifications for office.
“With Ben Carson wanting to hit his mother on head with a hammer, stab a friend and Pyramids built for grain storage – don’t people get it?” Trump tweeted in November of 2015, when he and Carson were still rivals.
But Carson endorsed Trump shortly after he dropped out of the contest, becoming only the second former Republican candidate to do so after Gov. Chris Christie.
The job of HUD secretary became vital after the 2008 housing crisis. President Barack Obama’s first pick for the job, Shaun Donovan, oversaw the nearly $14 billion that HUD received from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, known as the stimulus.
Donovan left the job in 2014 and was replaced by Julian Castro, then mayor of San Antonio.
The housing secretary also oversees programs that administer mortgage insurance to prospective homeowners and give rental subsidies to lower-income families.

Manchester United fails to secure 3 points from Everton.

 

Manchester United threw away a winning position in the final seconds at Goodison Park, as Marouane Fellaini’s mistake allowed Leighton Baines to rescue a 1-1 draw for Everton from the penalty spotman

Manchester United fans, furious at Marouane Fellaini’s giving-away of a late penalty to allow Everton to rescue a point in Sunday’s Premier League encounter, have been calling for the midfielder’s head.

The Belgian had only been on the pitch for two minutes when, in the 87th minute of the game, he caught Idrissa Gueye in the area to concede a spot-kick, with United only 1-0 up.

Leighton Baines duly held his nerve to cancel out Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s opener, prompting United supporters to fly into a fury on Twitter

 

Fellaini, signed for United by David Moyes, has long been a source of frustration for fans but has made 12 competitive appearances so far under Jose Mourinho.

Never want to see you anywhere near a united shirt again @Fellaini your times up pal

Liverpool loses 3 points with an Historical Comeback by AFC Bournemouth

4157132
Liverpool loses to Bournemouth after taking the lead at 1st half

Bournemouth shocked the world as they came back from losing 0:2 at first half to Liverpool to winning the game with an historical comeback, ending liverpool’s 15 games unbeaten run.

Jurgen Klopp went from fist-pumps to spitting fury as Liverpool disintegrated from authoritative to all-over-the-place on Sunday afternoon.

Comfortable with a 2-0 cushion at half-time and enjoying the same margin of superiority over Bournemouth at 3-1 on 75 minutes, they criminally departed the south coast with a defeat.

It was their first across all competitions since August 20 and, while they were chasing that game at Burnley, they were in cruise mode against the Cherries.

With just 15 minutes left, Eddie Howe’s men turned the match on its head and ensured that Liverpool lost theirs in a complete capitulation.

The pre-match focus centered on the absence of Philippe Coutinho, who suffered ankle ligament damage against Sunderland, but it was the injury to Junior Stanislas in the early stages of the second half that proved decisive.

Ryan Fraser replaced the 27-year-old and won a penalty, scored one and assisted another as Bournemouth left Liverpool – missing the services of centre-back Joel Matip – down and dazed.

The afternoon promised to end positively for the Reds after Sadio Mane and Divock Origi had them coasting on 22 minutes. The Senegal international raced through to meet a ball over the top from Emre Can. He out-paced Nathan Ake, showing more physicality than his marker too, before cleverly stabbing beyond a hesitant Artur Boruc.

Two minutes later, Mane tracked back to win possession and fed Jordan Henderson. The captain supplied Origi, who put the ball around the overcommitted home keeper and applied an incredible finish from an impossible angle to get his third goal in as many games.

Liverpool had swagger and the Bournemouth bench looked to be fearing the worst. Howe’s side felt aggrieved not to have been awarded a penalty after Roberto Firmino’s contact with Ake in the area but they were handed a spot-kick to spark their fightback in the second half.

James Milner fouled Fraser and Loris Karius dived the wrong way as Callum Wilson stuck the penalty but, less than 10 minutes later, Can demanded a pass off Mane before firing a fantastic first-time curler in from the edge of the box to restore Liverpool’s two-goal lead.

Milner went unbelievably close to scoring direct from a corner, with technology ruling that all of the ball did not go all over the line.

That seemed to be the end of Bournemouth’s resistance but it was actually just the start.

Fraser struck through a crowd of bodies to floor Karius, who should have done better before then flicking towards Steve Cook. The defender’s touch and turn was glorious as he found the bottom corner.

Liverpool were left shellshocked as the scoreline read 3-3. If they assumed that it could not have got worse, though, they were wrong. Karius failed to hold a Cook bullet in injury time, with Ake reacting quickest to make it count.

Bournemouth had never beaten Liverpool since 1927 but then became the first team to do so in 16 games.

There will be plenty of criticism, rightly, but the defeat should be viewed in context.

“We gave the game away because we didn’t play football any more,” said Klopp. Liverpool, you feel, won’t be allowed to have another off afternoon like this for a while if he has anything to do with it.

And then, They were three! (The Best FIFA Football Awards)

messi-griezmann-and-ronaldo

 

Frenchman Antoine Griezmann joined regulars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on the shortlist for FIFA’s Player of the Year award on Friday.

Claudio Ranieri and Fernando Santos, the men behind two of the year’s biggest surprises, were nominated for the best coach award alongside Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane.

Germany’s Melanie Behringer, last year’s winner Carli Lloyd of the U.S. and Brazil’s five-time winner Marta were nominated for the women’s player of the year award.

Ronaldo helped Portugal win Euro 2016, although his performances were often criticised and he was injured early in the final against France.

He also won the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid.

Messi led Argentina to the final of the Copa Centenario, where they lost to Chile, and won La Liga with Barcelona.

Angry with the leadership of the Argentine FA, he briefly announced his international retirement but later back-tracked.

Atletico Madrid forward Griezmann earned a spot with his performances for France at Euro 2016.

Ronaldo and Messi have shared the award since 2008, with Messi winning five times to Ronaldo’s three.

It was the sixth time in a row both have featured in the final shortlist of three.

Ronaldo won in 2008, 2013, 2014 with Messi second on each occasion. Messi won from 2009-12 and again last year with Ronaldo second on every occasion except in 2010 when Andres Iniesta was runner-up.

In the coaching race, Italian Ranieri led Leicester City to the English Premier League title against all the odds while Santos won Euro 2016 with Portugal, their first major trophy.

The first FIFA award was held in 1991 when it was won by German Lothar Matthaeus.

The women’s player of the year of the award has been held every year since 2001.

From 2010 to last year inclusive, the awards were organised jointly with France Football magazine and known as the FIFA Ballon D’Or.

Following the split with the French publication, the ceremony, which will be held in Zurich on January 9, has been renamed “The Best FIFA Football Awards’’.
