Marcelo Bielsa has personally telephoned target – Wants Leeds United to…

first_imgWith a contract expiring at the end of the season, Tuttosport state Poveda hasn’t managed to impress Pep Guardiola enough and therefore City won’t be offering an extension. That would increase the possibility of them letting him leave for nothing this month.Poveda is said to be very interested in signing for Torino, and negotiations are ongoing to try and reach an agreement over the next few days, however, the competition from Leeds United and Celtic remains.As Tuttosport have it, Marcelo Bielsa has personally telephoned the 19 year old and wants to convince the youngster that signing for Leeds would be the best choice for his building career.Promotion to the Premier League is in grasp for Bielsa’s side this season, which is another carrot to dangle in front of the attacking midfielder.Manchester City, despite not wanting to keep the player, have been searching for ‘friendly destinations’ for him, perhaps suggesting they’d allow a free transfer if there’s a clause regarding the player’s future.Given Guardiola is a big Bielsa fan, that could be helpful.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge 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.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

From the refugee camp to the European throne; Life of…

first_imgThe day the civil war broke out in the African country of Liberia. A Liberian couple, Debah Davis and Victoria Davis, gave birth to a baby boy in a refugee camp in Ghana. Until the age of five, he grew up starving in a refugee camp. Then, as luck would have it, he immigrated to Canada with his parents. It was also his coronation, having grown up in a refugee camp, when Bayern Munich became the kings of Europe, breaking the PSG last night more than fourteen years ago. The coronation of Alfonso Davis, who leaps from the left defense and delivers the ball to the penalty box to score for Lavandoski and Mുള്ളller.Arriving in Canada at the age of five, Alfonso Davis began training at a free football camp for the financially disadvantaged. Alfonso Davis’ only passion was football. Alfonso was isolated on the field as he did not speak English. Overall own good speed and ball handling. He jumped and scored and scored. At the age of 14, he signed a professional contract with Whitecapes FC. He also holds the record for the youngest player in the United Soccer League in the United States.The following year, the biggest clubs in Europe lined up for Alfonso Davis. Bayern Munich beat Alfonso to overtake Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool. The first Canadian to play for a German club, the first Canadian to win the Bundesliga title and the first Canadian to win the Champions League. Alfonso Davis’ gifts to Canada, which welcomed refugee immigrants with open arms.The world saw Alfonso Davison’s excellence in the Champions League quarter – final against Barcelona when he jumped from the left wing and threw the ball to Joshua Kimmich. Alfonso Davis, 19, is the perfect boy in modern football, combining speed, dribbling and crossing. For someone who has overcome hunger, war and immigration all his life, the defense of his opponents on the field may not seem like a challenge.last_img read more

Loving Rev Fred Phelps

first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 SharesMarch 20, 2014; Washington Post Could you love a man who wrote this?“We told you, right after it happened five years ago, that the deadly events of 9/11 were direct outpourings of divine retribution, the immediate visitation of God’s wrath and vengeance and punishment for America’s horrendous sodomite sins, that worse and more of it was on the way. We further told you that any politician, any political official, any preacher telling you differently as to the cause and interpretation of 9/11 is a dastardly lying false prophet, cowardly and mean, and headed for hell. And taking you with him! God is no longer with America, but is now America’s enemy. God himself is now America’s terrorist.”—Fred Phelps, “9/11: God’s Wrath Revealed,” Sept. 8, 2006.This article by Steven Petrow for the Washington Post provides a little grist for reflection for those of us wondering how to react to the news of the death of Rev. Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church. Petrow points to the question being asked on Twitter: Might the death of this miserably hate-filled 83-year-old be a cause for celebration?Phelps is known for his soul-assaulting protests at military funerals for purposes of “opposing the homosexual lifestyle of soul-damning, nation-destroying filth,” as well as the existence among us of Jews and Catholics, among others. In Phelps’ view, the death of young men and women in war and terrorism was God’s way of punishing the United States for its tolerance (such as it was) of gay rights. The church traveled hundreds of miles to picket mourning families with signs that inconceivably read “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11.”As Petrow recalls, however, the public first noticed Westboro Baptist when it picketed the funeral of Matthew Shepard who was beaten to death in what many believe to have been a hate crime. The signs for that event read “Fags are nature freaks,” “Matt in Hell,” and “God Hates Fags.”But Petrow points out that when Shepard’s mother, Judy Shepard, was asked about Phelps a few years ago, she responded, “Oh we love Freddy. If it wasn’t for him, there would be no Matthew Shepard.” By which, we assume, that his death would have been less noticed and less impactful, less responsible for the change that was to follow.Now, some are suggesting that it would be fair play to picket his funeral, but Petrow suggests this is the wrong approach.“Instead, what if those on the receiving end of Phelps’s ideology did the opposite, which is to say, let him go quietly—and without protest—into that good night?… Revenge against Phelps—or, frankly, any hateful or toxic person—doesn’t really allow for healing. Joseph Burgo, a psychoanalyst and an author, told me this week: ‘For those of us who have felt hated and shamed by people like Phelps, the temptation is to turn tables and triumph over their demise. You might think of it as “giving back” the hatred and shame that was inflicted upon us, but this reaction binds us to the other person as long as we continue to feel that way.’ He then added that we need ‘to break the hold of these destructive emotions and move on.’”“So,” says Petrow, “with Phelps’s passing, I suggest we bombard Westboro Baptist with sympathy cards and prayers. Or, as a friend of mine tells me: ‘Drive your enemies really crazy: Love them.’ Okay, maybe not love, but at least not hate. Never hate.”—Ruth McCambridgeShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more
