Barclays Premier League review

first_img SOUTHAMPTON 4 MANCHESTER CITY 2 GOALS:-SOUTHAMPTON: LONG 25; MANE 28, 57, 68. CITY: IHEANACHO 44, 78). Manchester City’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League remain in the balance after Sadio Mane netted a hat-trick. Shane Long opened the scoring before Mane doubled the lead, though Kelechi Iheanacho replied for the visitors. Mane then scored twice to make sure of the win, though Iheanacho found the top corner late on. SWANSEA CITY 3 LIVERPOOL 1 GOALS:-SWANSEA: AYEW 20, 67; CORK 33. LIVERPOOL: BENTEKE. Swansea City dismantled Liverpool to make sure of their Barclays Premier League status. Andre Ayew’s header and a Jack Cork goal put the hosts in charge; and though Christian Benteke headed home for Liverpool, Ayew’s second goal swiftly ended those aspirations. Brad Smith was then sent off for Liverpool, whose hopes of Champions League qualification now rest on winning the Europa League. SUNDAY, MAY 1 ARSENAL 1 NORWICH CITY 0 GOAL:-ARSENAL: WELBECK 59. Norwich moved closer to relegation on an afternoon that saw Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger subjected to calls for his sacking. Gunners fans protested inside and out of the Emirates, though they secured a valuable win with a Danny Welbeck half-volley. The result leaves Norwich in 19th place, two points from safety with three games remaining. EVERTON 2 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 GOALS:-EVERTON: CLEVERLEY 7; BAINES 64. BOURNEMOUTH: PUGH 9. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was another to face calls for his head despite seeing his side beat Bournemouth. Tom Cleverley drove in a low shot early on, but within seconds the Cherries levelled through Marc Pugh. Leighton Baines claimed the winner for Everton, but fans stayed behind to protest against Martinez. NEWCASTLE UNITED 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 0 GOAL:-NEWCASTLE: TOWNSEND 58. Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone, thanks to Andros Townsend’s magnificent free kick and keeper Karl Darlow’s penalty save. Townsend gave Newcastle the lead after half-time, but Yohan Cabaye, once of Newcastle, saw his late penalty saved by third-choice Darlow. The win sees Newcastle a point above Sunderland and two clear of Norwich. STOKE CITY 1 SUNDERLAND 1 GOALS:-STOKE: ARNAUTOVIC 50. SUNDERLAND: DEFOE PEN 90. Jermaine Defoe’s added-time penalty helped Newcastle rescue a point but dropped into the relegation zone after rivals Newcastle beat Palace. Marko Arnautovic gave Stoke the lead and Sunderland struggled to create chances in response, until Geoff Cameron tangled with Defoe in the 93rd minute and the former England striker made no mistake from the spot. WATFORD 3 ASTON VILLA 2 GOALS:-ABDI; DEENEY 90, 90. VILLA: CLARK 28; AYEW 48. Troy Deeney’s two late goals denied Aston Villa what would have been only their fourth league win of the season. Ciaran Clark headed Villa’s opener, but Almen Abdi equalised for Watford. Jordan Ayew’s low drive restored Villa’s lead, but Aly Cissokho was sent off with 17 minutes to play. Deeney levelled in added time and within seconds slotted home the winner. WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 WEST HAM UNITED 3 GOALS:-WEST HAM: KOUYATE 34; NOBLE 45, 79. Mark Noble scored twice to extended West Ham’s unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League to 10 games. Cheikhou Kouyate headed the Hammers ahead before Noble scuffed a shot prior to the break to extend the visitors’ advantage. Noble added his second and West Ham’s third when he volleyed home from Andy Carroll’s cross. SATURDAY, APRIL 30 Barclays Premier League reviewlast_img read more


first_imgThe judges of The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland competition have narrowed their search to just five places which are in the running for the overall award – including Ardara.They include one village, one small town, one large town, one city, and one suburb or urban village.Ardara had originally been in the top 25 of places to live in Ireland before it was joined by Westport, Co Mayo; Killarney, Co Kerry; Cork city; and Rathmines in Dublin in the top five. These five will be visited by the judges over the coming week, and the overall winner will be announced next Monday, June 25th.Needless to say the people of Ardara will be out in force this morning putting their best foot forward – and rightly so!For the Best Place to Live in Ireland competition, The Irish Times invited people to nominate the place they lived in, and explain its appeal.

MFSA publishes 11point checklist on scam cryptocurrency schemes

first_imgMalta’s Financial Services Authority has issued an 11 point checklist for consumers to spot crypto-currency and crypto-asset scams.The checklist includes everything from spotting key words and techniques used by scam artists, like 100% guarantees of fund deposits to the lack of physical offices.These are outlined below:Unrealistically high rates of return which are usually higher than the market average;Easy withdrawals which may be made at ‘anytime’;3. Promises that any funds deposited are 100% guarantee4. The business being unregulated;5. Lack of documentation or the use of documentation which is copied from a legitimate business;6. Aggressive selling techniques which put pressure and rush you to secure a sale;7. The absence of physical local offices;8. Contradiction between documents and spoken information;9. Not answering and avoiding hard questions;10. lack of information being provided on the website, or within the whitepaper;11. the use of buzz words such as ‘no risks’, ‘gains guaranteed’, ‘become a billionaire’, ‘free services just register’.They stress that the majority of these scams are advertised online utilizing ‘clickbait titles to attract users and make them fall into their trap,’  MFSA says.They also outline to potential cryptocurrency investors that the most frequent types of scams include schemes like phony ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), crowd-funding ventures or fake exchange platforms and fake e-wallet apps.While they look convincing, they have the high probability of stealing investor’s money and quickly shutting down operations.‘Consumers are also urged not to be fooled by the sensation of trust which these illegitimate platforms so often allude to. More importantly, one should take heed of the advice: if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!’WhatsApp <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img read more
