Why Man United Captain Maguire fought in Greece

Posted On Sep 22 2020 by

first_imgRelatedPosts Police in Adamawa arrest three car snatchers More troops, police deployed to Kaduna Airport Road, other strategic locations Police kill two in failed Niger State robbery Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire’s arrest allegedly came after his sister was stabbed in the arm during a night out.The 27-year-old spent a second night in a Greek jail last night following his arrest on Thursday night for reportedly getting involved in a fight outside of a bar in Mykonos. According to local publication Mykonos Voice, the altercation began when the England star stepped in to defend his sister Daisy when she was stabbed in the arm with “a sharp object”.A brawl was then said to have broken out between Maguire’s group and another group of British tourists and when police arrived, he was accused of being “verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him”.Two police officers are thought to have suffered facial injuries as they were knocked to the ground in an ensuing scrap, resulting in Maguire and two friends being arrested, with one of the trio then accused of attempting to offer a bribe in order to make the situation disappear.The centre-back and his two friends are facing a prosecutor on the island of Syros charged with violence against officials, bodily harm and attempted bribery – all of which Maguire denies.Describing the events of the night, one eyewitness alleged to The Sun: “There was a group of guys who had been chanting at Harry on Wednesday night, but it was a bit of banter. “On Thursday they were more aggressive, saying, ‘F*ck United’. They were trying to wind him up. They were also trying to mess around with a group of girls there.“Harry got upset. They told Harry, ‘F*ck United’ again and a brawl started with Harry’s mates. As they fell to the ground Harry was kicking the guys in the back. The girls were screaming.“Two police officers nearby came to try and break it up and Harry got really pissed off with them. He was telling them, ‘Go f*ck yourselves, this is none of your business.’ They tried to arrest him and Harry started hitting the police. They had to call for back-up.“Two or three more police came but Harry was so strong and upset that they couldn’t pin him down. He was screaming at them, they had a really hard time — at least one police officer was hurt. It took more than five officers to get him down.”United have said that they are “aware” of Maguire’s situation but have yet to make further comment. —Tags: assaultBargreeceHarry MaguireMan United CaptainMykonosPolicelast_img read more


Crashing net for rebounds has become Orange ice hockey’s bread and butter

Posted On Sep 17 2020 by

first_img Published on December 8, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ The act of crashing the net symbolizes Paul Flanagan’s Syracuse ice hockey team. And the scene of the team’s leading scorer, Isabel Menard, doing just that is one of many. The success that has been generated in similar situations has created a new mindset for the players as well. ‘I think I should be doing that more,’ said Menard, a sophomore forward. ‘Anybody that takes a shot, I will just crash. I know last year I didn’t do that enough, but this year I’m trying to focus on that a little bit more.’ On that play, Menard skated from the right side of the ice into the attacking zone and sent a wrist shot toward the net. The puck was blocked, but with three Syracuse players surrounding the net, the puck crossed the goal line seconds later. Just another rebound goal sent home by Megan Skelly. The red light turned on, and the offensive onslaught continued. The Orange caught fire this weekend and kept Wayne State’s goalkeeper Delayne Brian busy in the process. SU (8-7-2) has a good chance to extend its two-game winning streak against Princeton (4-10-1) in a two-game series this weekend.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text And the Orange will still be clawing for those rebound goals that have been there all season. This year, when Menard enters the offensive zone, she has one objective in mind. ‘Get the puck toward the net and generate a rebound,’ she said. With a monthlong break on the horizon, Flanagan sees a successful weekend as added motivation for SU at the halfway mark of the season. ‘We have a real good opportunity to play a real good team down at Princeton and finish up the semester in a real good way,’ Flanagan said. ‘Hopefully all our energy is used to get ready for that game and final exams.’ The Tigers may provide the Orange an opportunity to end the first half of the season on the right foot. Syracuse’s offense has been able to create numerous scoring chances in its last five games, meaning the opportunities to come away victorious are there. Now teams need to be weary of how the puck is coming off of any Syracuse player’s stick. Last weekend’s goals came following slap shots and wrist shots or simply anything fired on net. Anything that would create a rebound. When the Orange generated enough shots on goal, it led to greater scoring opportunities. The Orange scored three of its five goals during Saturday’s contest with the Warriors off rebounds. SU players are beginning to understand the rewards that can come from crashing the net. For the Orange, this weekend’s series may be one of its best opportunities to get wins away from the Tennity Ice Pavilion this season. With six of the team’s nine games on the road in the month of January, Flanagan hopes his team will make the most of this opportunity. ‘I think we feel that we need to win all of our points at home and steal some on the road if we want to position ourselves to be a high seed in the playoffs,’ Flanagan said. ‘One of our goals is to get back to that championship game.’ SU may be playing Princeton at just the right time. The Tigers have given up 14 goals in their last five games. The recent offensive success of the Orange could carry the team successfully into break. Following Saturday’s victory against Wayne State, Skelly acknowledged that sweeps are important confidence builders for the rest of the season. Especially heading into the team’s heavily-concentrated conference schedule following break. ‘Our goal at the beginning of the year was to get to that CHA conference final,’ Skelly said. ‘This should instill some confidence in the team that we are a great team and we can win.’ The Princeton series presents a big chance for the Orange — as long as it continues to play its crashing style of hockey. ‘It would be really nice to finish up with a sweep,’ Flanagan said. ‘And come back here in January, re-energized with a good record to start off the new semester.’ [email protected]center_img Commentslast_img read more

Metzingen – On October 22 HUGO BOSS will be openi

Posted On Aug 10 2019 by

first_imgMetzingen – On October 22, HUGO BOSS will be opening a store at 401 West 14th Street that features an absolutely unique interior design and merchandising concept created exclusively for this location.Inspired by the special flair of the Meatpacking District, a design was developed in conjunction with star Italian architect Matteo Thun which integrates harmoniously into the streetscape yet makes its own standout statement. For the first time the highlights from all the HUGO BOSS men’s and women’s collections will be showcased jointly, here in the 350m2 (approx. 4,000 sq.ft) venue. The result is a distinctive, boutique-like environment that fuses the brand worlds of HUGO and the diverse BOSS lines into a “total look.”While a rough-hewn architectural mood predominates at the streetside front of the store, a warmer, more intimate atmosphere infuses the back. Sumptuous red velvet curtains and elements made of dark spyglass set a luxurious tone beneath a golden ceiling. This elegance counterpoints the location’s gray stone floor and exposed brickwork, both of which have been preserved in their original state. Diamond shaped structures in wood extend throughout the interior, creating an airy ambiance. Add furnishings in bronzed metal, leather and velvet – and an atmosphere ensues which mirrors the quarter’s urban and creative charm. Designed in cooperation with the renowned light artist AJ Weissbard, an elaborate illumination system – which produces lighting effects that react to the weather and time of day – rounds out the original concept.“This special, globally unique store concept is a tribute to New York and the Meatpacking District. When collaborating with Matteo Thun, our goal was to create something exceptionally distinctive that both reflected the character of its surroundings and forged a symbiosis with our collections,” commented Philipp Wolff, Director of Communication at HUGO BOSS AG. Matteo Thun noted, “The wooden framework cocoons the interior of the store, symbolizing the interconnectedness of the various HUGO BOSS lines and as such comprising an architectonic manifestation of the corporate identity. The interior assimilates the anima of the Meatpacking District, embracing an austere aesthetic that is attuned to the genius loci.”Beyond its venue in the Meatpacking District, HUGO BOSS is represented in New York by three further directly operated locations: BOSS stores at Columbus Circle and in SoHo, and a HUGO store on Greene Street.last_img read more
