A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He has, however, endured something of a barren run of late, netting once in his last 11 appearances.The 24-year-old drew a blank again in a 4-2 victory over Watford, with one gilt-edged opportunity to get him back on track squandered.With his side not needing to rely on their big-money frontman to get the job done, Mourinho was in jovial mood after the game as he told reporters: “I think he needs a contract with boots because he doesn’t have a contract with any brand.“That’s why he is playing with the black boots, he needs to be paid the right money so he goes back to goals but jokes apart he works amazingly well for the team.”I would never blame him for the easy chance he missed with me he doesn’t have that pressure, amazing player, amazing professional, I couldn’t be happier with him.”He finished the deal and now he’s waiting for the right offer!”United appeared to be in complete control of their meeting with Watford after racing into a three-goal lead by half-time.They were, however, to be pegged back to 3-2 before a stunning individual effort from Jesse Lingard helped to calm their nerves and wrap up the points.Mourinho concedes that things should have been a lot more comfortable for his side – with Lukaku not the only one to find his radar off in the final third – but the Portuguese also believes that important lessons can be taken from the clash at Vicarage Road.He added: “I think we had mistakes, mistakes in the box and that cost us two goals, maybe is a good lesson and is good to have lessons without losing points.”So the next time we are winning 2-0 or 3-0 I think the players will remember football is football.”Victory over the Hornets has cemented United’s standing in second spot in the Premier League table, with the gap to leaders Manchester City cut to five points ahead of an outing for Pep Guardiola’s side against Southampton on Wednesday.
Napoli legend Ottavio Bianchi has urged his former side to get rid of the “victim mentality” if they want to make exploits in the modern game.Bianchi who won the Scudetto with Napoli believes It’s the only area where they haven’t grown exponentially ahead of tonight’s game with Milan.“In some ways, the only area where Napoli haven’t grown exponentially over the years is in their victim mentality. That’s just an extra chance given to the opposition. He disclosed to Football Italia.“In my days, Napoli would fight to avoid relegation one year and finish mid-table the other. At that time, you knew you were representing a great city, but now you are representing a big club too.“Now the club has been at the top for years, a side with a precise identity and Carlo Ancelotti can now ‘make the most’ of Maurizio Sarri’s work, adding his own ideas to build on the existing project.Do not miss out on the Serie A action tonight!⚽️📢AC Milan takes on Napoli by 7:30 pm.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Searching for high odds?🤔Bet on our https://t.co/OUHKpAWnGj Special Pick👇🏽 pic.twitter.com/ZTABnFL8Bb— BLACKBET.NG (@BlackbetNG) January 26, 2019“Ancelotti has done really well to not completely tear it down and start again. He is getting the best out of his players with squad rotation, not going overboard. They say the best Coach is the one that does the least damage.”Nonetheless, Juventus are still streaking out in front on their way to a potential eighth consecutive Scudetto.“Juve are putting together results that can never be repeated, but it’s also because all their challengers have fallen at more or less the same time. If Inter, Milan and Roma return to playing at a certain level, it’ll be easier also for Napoli to challenge Juve.”

Netflix Tags Share your voice 0 Digital Media Post a comment Netflix makes its originals shows, like Sex Education, available for download. Jon Hall/Netflix Netflix is widening its “smart downloads” feature to Apple mobile devices, the company said Thursday, giving more mobile users the option to let Netflix automate your offline cache so you don’t need to keep on top of the episodes downloaded to your device. The streaming-video giant introduced “smart downloads” on Android devices in July as a way to automatically remove downloaded shows you’ve already watched and refresh them with the next episodes you haven’t seen once your phone reconnects to Wi-Fi. Netflix defied downloads for years, holding out for the day that connectivity would advance so much that downloading to watch offline wouldn’t be necessary anymore. But it changed course more than two years ago, as competitors like Amazon Prime Video began offering downloads, and as Netflix itself expanded internationally to markets where mobile connectivity was more scarce and expensive. In 2016, it began letting subscribers download much of its catalog. Tech Culture: From film and television to social media and games, here’s your place for the lighter side of tech.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganabhaban on Friday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday sharply criticised the USA for issuing an alert on Bangladesh without citing any reason or giving any explanation, reports UNB. “I saw the USA issued a red alert. They didn’t inform us why they issued the alert and gave no explanation either,” she said in her introductory speech at Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) meeting at Ganobhaban. Sheikh Hasina said she has already asked the authorities concerned to look into the matter and find out why the US issued the alert or whether they have any information. “If they’ve any information about any incident that can happen in the coming days, then it’s their responsibility to inform us,” the prime minister said. “They could inform our intelligence agencies so that we could take steps.” Hasina said terrorism is a problem for the whole world. “Bangladesh contained terrorism and militancy successfully. After one incident we’re very much alert and our intelligence agencies are working round the clock. If they (the US) have any information, they should inform the appropriate authority,” she said. The prime minister said Bangladesh is in the top five growth attaining countries and it is natural that those who did not want the country’s independence will not want to see the country advancing smoothly socioeconomically. “They hatched conspiracies in the past, but we’re advancing and we’ll be advancing. Everyone has to work so that our march towards success continues,” she said. The US embassy on Wednesday issued a fresh alert for its citizens living in Bangladesh. “In light of calls for revenge in the wake of the 15 March terrorist attack against on mosques in New Zealand, we encourage US citizens to exercise heightened awareness of the ongoing threat posed by transnational terrorist organisations such as ISIS and al-Qa’ida,” it said in a statement.Terrorist groups, their associates, and those inspired by such organisations remain intent on attacking US and western citizens around the world, including in Bangladesh, it mentioned.It also requested its citizens to review their personal security plans as well to be aware of their surroundings.”Stay alert in locations frequented by Westerners and monitor local media for updates,” it added.
Children visit a haunted Halloween trailer.It was Halloween night and tiny goblins and ghouls, witches, and pirates scurried along the streets of southeast Washington. However, they weren’t headed door to door. They were headed car trunk to car trunk. Trunk of Treat had come to AnacostiaThis year, residents joined a slow growing trend across the nation in cities from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Detroit to Johnson City, Tennessee, where adults decorate their cars as monsters and spiders and park in the parking lot behind the Big Chair in Anacostia for children to trick or treat.“I wanted to do something creative,” Jonathan Silverman, brother of at-large D.C. Councilwoman Elissa Silverman (D), said. “Part of this Trunk or Treat idea is so that kids can all come together and meet each other. I wanted to make it kind of like a house. I wanted to make it a welcome place to come in.”Mayor Muriel Bowser and Ward 8 Councilwoman LaRuby May take in the festivities..Councilwoman Silverman and Ward 8 Councilmember LaRuby May (D) sponsored the night’s events with Mayor Muriel Bowser’s help. Bowser (D) came to watch the children have fun and to see May dance.Between eating their picked up Twizzlers, Mike & Ike, and Kit Kats, children stopped to create arts and crafts, snack on popcorn, play in the bounce house, or take a trip into a mobile trailer that had been turned into a haunted house.They took tours through a Halloween Metro bus decorated with spider webs and skeletons and climbed atop a huge yellow steamroller to blow the horn.“I thought it was a great concept and a great idea to have everyone together and there’s a real sense of community here,” said Nicole Luke, who blogs about community events using the name D.C. Thrifty Mom.Luke said she came to hand out candy and allow her two daughters to trick or treat.Dorothy Wortham and her son and daughter traveled from Clinton, Maryland to participate in the event. Wortham’s son was dressed as a Star Wars character. “LaRuby May is a member of my church at Allen Chapel AME Church,” she explained. “We did it last year on a smaller scale on our church parking lot. So, Ms. May wanted to make it bigger and invite more people so they moved it out here. I love it and I think it’s a great idea.“My son is having a ball. We’re trying to get him to leave, and he doesn’t want to. We’re having a great time.”For many, the key element was that the event was a safe space for children to enjoy Halloween. “This is a safe way to do things,” said Denise Monroe who came with her husband and three grandchildren. “I heard about it and here we are.”Ro Zebina, president of the Deuces Wild Motorcycle Club, and his members, dressed in emblem-covered hoodies and vests, brought along about 20 motorcycles. They handed out candy and posed with children for pictures. “I hope that there are more events like this for the kids to come out and see that there’s positivity and different things going for them,” Zebina said.
