Watford legend tips Abdoulaye Doucoure to leave for PSG

first_imgTommy Smith expects Abdoulaye Doucoure to leave Watford for a big money move to Paris Saint-GermainThe French midfielder has thrived at Vicarage Road following his arrival in 2016 from Ligue 1 side Rennes, which has led to reports of interest from bigger clubs.Liverpool and Everton have both been linked with Doucoure recently, but Smith believes PSG are the favourites to make a £50m bid in this month’s transfer window.“He’ll be a huge loss if he does leave and ultimately he probably will do,” Smith told Love Sport Radio.“When you’re talking about clubs the size of PSG, Champions League football and titles, for any player that’s going to be attractive.“When you’re talking £50m for a player, for a club like Watford that’s enormous. I think if that is the kind of interest, it will only be a matter of time.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The former winger compared Doucoure to fellow French midfielder and Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, who now coaches OGC Nice in Ligue 1.“I’ve seen him play a number of times and he’s an exciting talent who can score goals as well,” added Smith.“He’s a Vieira-esque midfielder who gets up and down and gets in both boxes.“He’s quite physical and he’s good on the ball as well so I’m not surprised by the interest.”Doucoure didn’t feature in Watford’s 2-0 FA Cup win over National League side Woking on Sunday.last_img read more

Veteran Homelessness Resumes LongTerm Decline in 2018

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The number of homeless veterans fell 5.4 percent since 2017 according to an annual, one-night survey conducted in January, reversing the increase recorded last year after the figure had dropped steadily since 2010. The latest estimate found 37,878 veterans experienced homelessness, compared to 40,020 reported in January 2017. The 2017 figure represented an increase of more than 500 people over the previous year. Veterans advocates applauded this year’s improvement, but said the federal government could be doing more.“Down is always a good thing, especially given the affordable housing crisis we’re seeing in America today,” Kathryn Monet, CEO of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, told Military Times. “But we still have a sense that if leadership were more committed to this issue, we could have seen even bigger decreases.”Each year thousands of local communities conduct a one-night, point-in-time estimate of the number of persons experiencing homelessness — in emergency shelters, transitional housing programs and in unsheltered locations, according to a Housing and Urban Development Department press release.Air Force photo by Senior Airman Timothy Taylorlast_img read more

Pahela Baishakh celebrated

first_imgForeigners too join the celebration of Pahela Baishakh on Dhaka University campus. Photo: Galib Ashraf.As the dawn breaks, all the city roads lead to Ramna and Dhaka University’s faculty of fine arts area, people in thousands gathering to celebrate the Bengali New Year Pahela Baishakh.Women and girls wearing colourful saris and men in punjabis throng the DU area while the parade, Mangal Shobhajatra, carries along to the Rupashi Bangla intersection from fine arts institution.Alongside the large number of youths, there are many of the older generation too in DU’s faculty of fine arts, Ramna Park and Suhrawardy Udyan area. Children were waiting in long queues to enjoy the traditional rides.Lakshan Babu who works of a private company and is in his 50s, was taking a break with his five-year-old son near Batmul of Ramna. He recounted the celebrations of Baishakh from the past.“I have been joining the Baishakh celebrations in Ramna batmul since the early 90s. The celebration has evolved so much since then. Though the participation has increased, the inherent spirit has decreased,” he said.According to him, the cultural engagement was much more in the past.“Different musical organisations used to sing Baishakhi songs in every nook and corner of the Ramna Park and Suhrawardy Udyan. A lot of individual folk singers were also seen here and there.”Abdur Rahim, 65, a retired banker came to Dhaka University campus from Narayanganj with his grandson.“Though I still enjoy Baishakhi celebrations but I miss the way it used to be celebrated decades ago,” he said adding, “It was not a single day celebration back then; we used to celebrate it for more than week. As my father was a trader, haalkhata (closing the annual accounts ledge) celebrations were very significant. And how can you forget the taste of those sweets prepared at the Baishakhi fair in the market?”A number of foreigners were also seen enjoying the celebrations.Randy Mikko, founder of Mikko Foundation, was taking photographs of the jubilant people.“I am amazed to see such a huge gathering. Mangal Shobhajatra is an unique celebration,” he said.Another group of young students from there Netherlands were also enjoying the celebration and taking selfies with the local people.  They say they were excited about Mangal Shobhajatra as they know the parade has UNESCO recognition.UNESCO recognised Mangal Shobhajatra as intangible cultural heritage in 2016.last_img read more
