Arnett can punish lowly Waterhouse

first_imgAfter a short break for the holidays, the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) will resume today with five quality matches and another of equal importance tomorrow.Promoted team Portmore United, who trail leaders Montego Bay United on goal difference, will have the opportunity to overtake the St James-based team for, at least, 24 hours if they get the better of visitors Reno at Juici Park in Clarendon. Mid-table Boys’ Town will play away to the struggling Cavalier SC at Stadium East while relegation-threatened Rivoli United will host the improving Harbour View at the Prison Oval.Eighth-placed UWI FC have been steadily showing that they belong among the big boys, and a victory over fourth-placed Humble Lion will make believers of others besides their growing band of fans, but, perhaps, the most interest will be in the Arnett Gardens-Waterhouse match at Drewsland. The Drewsland-based team has experienced the greatest reversal of form of all the teams in the League and are now looking to their third coach for the season, Paul Young, to deliver them from their sorry position.No wins yetIn their two matches under Young’s guidance so far, Waterhouse have played to two draws, scored six goals while conceding six. The second was a 4-4 draw with Cavalier FC, where the score resembled an incomplete set of a tennis match. While it was good that Waterhouse scored goals, Kenroy Howell scoring three, it also showed that they are very porous as Cavalier have struggled all season to find the back of the net and had only scored seven from their previous seven games.The above situation could be very inviting to defending champions Arnett Gardens.”Despite their poor showing when Waterhouse play against Arnett Gardens, they usually come with their best effort,” said Arnett Gardens coach Jerome Waite, perhaps masking his excitement at the prospect of facing them.”They have a good coach in Paul Young and, under his charge, they have played two games and have drawn both. They also scored six goals and conceded six, so they have positives in terms of the goals that they have scored, but they have negatives in terms of the goals they have conceded, so we will see,” added the analytical Waite.Young is hoping he can move the team to safety and possibly a semi-final place.”The effort is there at training every day. The attitude is good and the team spirit is good, so I am looking to good things on Sunday,” Young told The Gleaner last Thursday at the Red Stripe Premier League’s weekly press briefing at Red Stripe.However, if they are able to get their act together on the field, they may have a good chance to surprise the defending champions as they will be without two of their key players in defensive rock, captain O’Neil ‘Bigga’ Thompson and midfielder Renae Lloyd. With Thompson out of the backline, Jermain Anderson, Howell, and company may have a greater chance of advancing on goal.At the other end, the home team will have to pay great attention to their former player, Kemal Malcolm, who is having his best Premier League season so far with nine goals to be third on the goal scoring table. With Rohan Amos looking way past his best and Nicholi Finlayson looking casual at best, that combination could be easing pickings for Malcolm and the rejuvenated Leon Strickland, also a former Waterhouse player. Both could be aiming to show Waterhouse what they are missing.Today’s Games:5 p.m.: Cavalier vs Boys’ Town – Stadium East3 p.m.: Portmore United vs Reno – Juici Park, Clarendon3 p.m.: Rivoli United vs Harbour View – Prison Oval3 p.m.: UWI FC vs Humble Lion – UWI Bowl, Mona6 p.m.: Waterhouse vs Arnett Gardens – Drewsland StadiumTomorrow’s game:8:40 p.m.: Montego Bay United vs Tivoli Gardens – Montego Bay Sports Complex Points standingTeam P W D L GF GA GD PtsMoBay United 18 9 7 2 29 11 18 34Portmore 18 10 4 4 19 14 5 34Arnett 18 10 2 6 27 15 12 32Humble Lion FC 18 7 7 4 14 12 2 28H.View 18 6 7 5 18 18 0 25Boys’ Town 18 7 4 7 21 23 -2 25Reno 18 5 8 5 17 19 -2 23UWI FC 18 6 4 8 17 25 -8 22Tivoli 18 5 4 9 23 26 -3 19Cavalier 18 4 6 8 11 18 -7 18Rivoli 18 4 5 9 19 25 -6 17Waterhouse 18 3 6 9 17 26 -9 15last_img read more

What The Hell Is A Qube?

first_imgTags:#Asus#CES 2013#Google#hardware#Streaming video#television Related Posts jon mitchell 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…center_img Since there weren’t already enough strangely shaped, wireless computers to plug into your television, Asus on Monday announced a new one at CES called the Qube. It’s a Google TV-powered device, but instead of bringing clarity to the Google TV product line, it adds even more confusion – if such a thing is possible.The Qube has a custom Asus interface, and it uses Asus’ own cloud storage service instead of Google’s. Just what the brutally low-margin TV business needs: more infighting with itself.From Q to QubeFirst, Google made something called a Nexus Q. It was the most inscrutable computer-like object of 2012 – a heavy, glowing orb that does the same things as every other decent smart TV box. Except for the TV part, which is what Google TV is for.The Q was supposed to cost three hundred freaking dollars until Google un-launched it because no one understood what it was, and there’s still no word on if or when it will re-launch. (I have been trying to give mine away since Google I/O, and no one will take it.)What About Google TV?The obvious question about the Nexus Q was, what about Google TV? Google TV has been a failure so far. Would there be an official Nexus-branded Google TV box to set things right by standardizing and streamlining the interface?Well, not yet. There’s just this mythical CES beast called a Qube by Asus. No Nexus brand, no price, no release date. It has a “rotating on-screen cube” interface for a motion-sensitive remote or smartphone, which sounds insane to use, and it’s backed by 50GB of Asus’s own WebStorage service. So this thing actually competes with Google, even though Google approved it.Sure. Sounds like a slam dunk.I’m sure this contraption is very exciting to everyone at the Consumer Electronics Show, which is known for being attended by zero consumers. As for real “consumers,” it’s probably fine that they would have no idea what a Qube is or what to do with it. After all, plenty of CES gadgets never get released – what difference will one more make? 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

Will Messi be football merchandise messiah for Argentina?

first_imgWhile football lovers in India are eagerly awaiting the arrival of arguably the best player of the present era – Lionel Messi – for an Argentina-Venezuela friendly on September 2, the match will also be a vehicle to tap the huge market for merchandising in the country.Argentina and Barcelona football star Lionel Messi is expected to play in Kolkata this September. APWith even the Spanish League’s kick-off timings set to be reworked for the next season to suit Asian viewers, it comes as no surprise that the craze for the likes of Messi and Carlos Tevez among Indian youngsters will be used to open new avenues for merchandising.Even though Messi, Tevez, Gonzalo Higuain and Javier Mascherano are widely known names in the country, the move to play the friendly on Indian soil – arguably the highest-profile match ever in the country- will help in not only promoting their country and clubs, but also increase the sale of their merchandise here.Bhaswar Goswami, chief of Celebrity Management Group (CMG), says that other than promoting the game in the country, Argentina will also use the opportunity to tap the huge Indian market and promote their stars so as to increase sale of their merchandise.  “There is immense craze for football in the country and we all know the kind of respect the likes of Messi and Tevez commend in this country. So it isn’t too much of a surprise that they will look into merchandising and using the still widely untapped market in the country.advertisement”Despite these stars never setting foot on Indian soil, many youngsters are mad about these players and are often seen buying original jerseys of these stars at huge prices, so their very presence will definitely augur well for Argentina’s marketing team,” he told MAIL TODAY.Clearing all doubts over Messi’s presence in the squad, Goswami said: “I had a direct interaction with the Argentina manager and when the contract was forwarded to them for the friendly to be played at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan in Kolkata, we had clearly mentioned that the presence of Messi and Tevez was a must.”So they signed the contract knowing that Messi and Tevez’s presence was mandatory. The manager has also informed that Mascherano is most likely to lead the team.” Goswami cleared any doubts over the infrastructural capability of the stadium to hold the match.”All these rumours that the match might be shifted to another venue are baseless. The players know that the ground has artificial turf and they have no issues playing on it. There were a few issues with the players’ arena as it is a FIFA friendly and the facilities need to be world- class. But work has already started and with the kind of co- operation that we have got from the state government, I am sure we will be ready well in advance of the September 2 match.”In fact, designs were sent from Argentina to meet the demand of the stars and the refurbishment is being done accordingly. Moreover, we are looking to improve the facilities for the spectators as well, so that they can watch one of the biggest matches comfortably,” he said.Although bucket seats are must for any FIFA match, Goswami reiterated that they are not mandatory for international friendlies.last_img read more
