10 10 10. Nacer Chadli (Tottenham Hotspur) – read why he needs to leave, then click the arrow above, right, to see nine more players who should be thinking the same – Chadli moved to White Hart Lane in June 2013 and has left many a Spurs supporter uncertain on what role he has in the team. Far from the most technically gifted of players, the Belgium international is nonetheless effective at grabbing the odd goal, but simply doesnt contribute enough at either end. An exit would therefore suit all involved. Latest reports have claimed Swansea City are planning a club record £15m bid for the Belgium international. 4. Marcos Rojo (Manchester United) – Much has been spoken of the players Jose Mourinho may consider dispensable as he overhauls Louis van Gaals tired squad. One of those the Portuguese coach could offload this summer is Rojo. The Argentina international hasnt impressed the Old Trafford faithful, with his attitude and ability in defence questioned. With Luke Shaw returning to fitness, Rojo will be little more than a regular on the United bench next season. 9. Victor Moses (Chelsea) – Despite spending three of his four seasons on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, respectively, its time Moses looked to seal a permanent exit from Stamford Bridge. He often features heavily in Chelseas pre-season fixtures before quickly being shipped out elsewhere in the Premier League. This cant possibly have a positive impact on his confidence. The 25-year-old needs to settle at a club. 7. Loic Remy (Chelsea) – Remy has to leave Stamford Bridge. That is unless hes content with taking home his wages for almost zero contribution on the field. With extra competition up top from Michy Batshuayi, the Frenchman has little chance of playing a key role in Antonio Contes team next season. He proved at Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United that he can effectively lead an attack, but is short of the quality required for Chelsea. 10 10 10 10 8. Kevin Mirallas (Everton) – Mirallas made just 10 starts in the Premier League last season, as then manager Roberto Martinez nudged the Belgian away from his plans. A new coach in Ronald Koeman could leave the 28-year-old believing his chances of playing time may improve, but the possibility of another largely futile campaign should encourage him to say farewell to Goodison Park. He still has plenty to offer a club and shouldnt be short of offers. 1. Theo Walcott (Arsenal) – Its now been 10 and a half years since Walcott moved from Southampton and still supporters are waiting for the forward to settle in north London. Now 27, he should have established himself as a regular in Arsene Wengers side, but his role in the first team is still uncertain. He may feel at home at the Emirates, but he is now at serious risk of wasting his entire career on the sidelines at Arsenal, failing to fulfil his potential. 5. Nemanja Matic (Chelsea) – Matic may be the surprise on the list, given his importance to the Chelsea team in their title-winning 2014-15 campaign. Last season though, the 27-year-old looked a shadow of the player who rarely left the Blues defence exposed, with his confidence having taken a clear battering. There is the possibility that he may return to form under new manager Antonio Conte, but NGolo Kante, recently signed in a £30m deal from Premier League champions Leicester City, is set to take over the holding midfield role, leaving Matics future uncertain. 10 2. Christian Benteke (Liverpool) – It may only have been a year since Liverpool activated the £32.5m release clause of Benteke, but it seems game over already. The Belgium international simply isnt suited to Jurgen Klopps high-energy, high-pressing style of play, and should he spend another campaign at Anfield, his situation isnt likely to improve. The problem may be encouraging clubs interested to table an offer close to the figure paid last summer. It’ll be a difficult period for some players over the summer.A challenging campaign combined with the uncertainty that arrives with new signings may leave plenty wondering whether their future really lies with their current club.The Premier League saw many a miserable face on the substitutes’ bench last season and the expression of those may be unchanged as the new term approaches.So which players from England’s top flight should consider an exit before the 2016/17 season kicks off?Take a look at the top 10 from the Premier League whose career could benefit from a move by viewing the slideshow above. 3. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – Throughout last season there were many suggesting Oxlade-Chamberlains time at the Emirates has run its course. With the new campaign approaching, that still seems very much to be the case. While some may argue injury has played its role in his poor progression and at 22 he is still yet to hit his peak, his time at the Emirates has proved largely fruitless. With so much competition in midfield for places and new signings anticipated, its almost impossible to envisage regular first team action for the Ox. 10 10 6. Wilfried Bony (Manchester City) – Prior to his move, it was difficult to envisage regular action for Bony at the Etihad. Its not surprising, therefore, that he is yet to settle in Manchester. He missed 15 games through injury last season, which will only have added to his frustration at not being able to sustain a place in Manuel Pellegrinis line up. Pep Guardiola, Citys new manager, may have plans for the Ivorian, but its unlikely hell be considered a regular starter. The 27-year-olds stock hasnt taken too worrying a dive though, and an exit could be the sensible choice this summer. 10
zoom Saudi Arabia’s state oil company Saudi Aramco, and its partners Lamprell, the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), have chosen Posidonia 2018 for the global unveiling of their International Maritime Industries (IMI) joint venture.When the yard is fully operational in 2022, IMI will offer new build and maintenance, repair and overhaul of vessels, including very large crude carriers (VLCCs) and offshore rigs.The nearly 12 million-square-meter facility to be situated in Ras Al Khair in eastern Saudi Arabia will be the largest in the region in terms of production capacity and scale, and will be able to manufacture over 40 vessels, as indicated by Saudi Aramco.This scope is expected to enable Saudi Aramco and its supply chain partners to meet their manufacturing and MRO requirements for offshore oil and gas rigs, offshore support vessels, and commercial vessels, including crude carriers.The yard already has orders for more than 20 rigs and 52 ships over the next decade.“We have chosen to participate at Posidonia 2018 to showcase International Maritime Industries’ position as a global competitor and regional hub for maritime industries and services. Given our geographic location and our proximity to strategic shipping routes, IMI is well positioned to be the partner of choice for newbuild ships and rigs, as well as maintenance, repair and overhaul services,” Fathi K. Al-Saleem, CEO of IMI, said.IMI will be joining over 1,850 companies from a wide range of maritime industry sectors currently preparing and planning their participation at the June 4-8 event to be held at the Athens Metropolitan Expo across an exhibitor floor space spanning 40,000 sqm.Organisers expect to welcome over 22,000 shipping executives and government delegation members during the five days of the event, including a strong presence of the Greek shipowning community.
Matt Lowton is proud of Burnley defensive organization as they secured a precious point with a clean sheet away at Leicester City.It was an emotional day at the King Power Stadium as the hosts paid a heartfelt tribute to the late club owner who died in a helicopter crash weeks ago.Burnley’s solid defensive display can be credited to Lowton who played a pivotal role to keep Jamie Vardy quiet for much of the game.“Another thing we have mentioned is getting blocks around people and defending right,” Lowton told the club’s website.“The ball was in and around the box so I just got on the line to try and be a body in the way and luckily I got my left foot on it and got the clearance.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“It gives us a lift, little things like that, and I thought we built into the game. We had a couple of half-chances and we defended well.“We have been working hard over the last few weeks trying to get back to what we are about, and I thought we did that, getting on the front foot.“We defended well in our shape, everyone worked hard and it was a very good point.”
The Obama administration’s plan for shuttering the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay released Tuesday offered no new information for defense communities anxious to learn which installations DOD was eyeing to house prisoners that would be relocated from Cuba.Officials identified 13 potential facilities in the United States — including federal and state prisons, as well as military installations — for the purpose of preparing a cost estimate, but the plan neither names them nor recommends a specific site.“Based on past reviews and a 2015 survey of potential detention locations in the United States, the Department of Defense determined that, with modifications, a variety of Department of Defense, Bureau of Prisons, and state prison facilities could safely, securely, and humanely house Guantanamo detainees for the purpose of military commissions and continued law of war detention,” the plan states.Last year, DOD teams surveyed the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; the Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston, S.C., a federal supermax facility in Florence, Colo.; and the Colorado State Penitentiary II in Canon City. Officials also considered building a brand new prison at a DOD facility, according to the plan.“As part of the assessment process, the Department of Defense examined ways to split the detainee population between sites, but concluded that a single detention center was the most efficient course of action,” the plans states.At a Pentagon press briefing that followed President Obama’s White House introduction of the plan, press secretary Peter Cook said the names of some of the 13 locations possibly may be revealed during the dialogue with Congress over the issue.“At this point, we don’t anticipate releasing those names publicly, in part because this conversation has just begun with Congress, but it could be something that comes up during the course of those conversations,” Cook told reporters. Some of the information may be classified, he added.When asked why the plan didn’t recommend a single location, Cook said officials first needed lawmakers to offer their input on possible locations.“There are details here that matter, and we want Congress’ input on issues about whether a remote location or locating a facility like this on an existing DOD property, whether or not there’s a preference there,” Cook responded.“Congress is going to have to decide ultimately … whether this plan moves forward and in what shape, but we think we’ve presented with them a pathway, a range of options, if you will, cost options based on a DOD facility, a greenfield facility, a facility perhaps that’s not at a DOD location,” he said.And while reporters repeatedly pointed out the overwhelming opposition to the administration’s plan from congressional Republicans, Cook said the plan offers an opportunity for the administration and lawmakers to jumpstart a discussion on the best way to close the Guantánamo prison.“We think there is the opportunity to engage with Congress now, consider what these options are, what the costs are, what the benefits are, what the potential negatives might be with regard to each and every one of these potential locations and that that will present an opportunity to … advance this,” Cook stated.
