Youri Tielemans responds to summer interest from Manchester United and Arsenal Advertisement Youri Tielemans was heavily linked with both Manchester United and Arsenal this summer (Picture: Getty)Youri Tielemans is confident he made the right choice in joining Leicester this summer despite interest from the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.The 22-year-old completed a loan move to Leicester last January and caught the eye with a string of outstanding performances in the Premier League as he notched up three goals and four assists in the second half of the season.Brendan Rodgers made it clear he wanted to make Tielemans’ deal permanent as the midfielder continued to impress, but his form also alerted England’s top clubs to a potential summer transfer.However, Leicester reached a £40million agreement with Tielemans’ parent club, Monaco, at the beginning of July and the Belgian put pen to paper on a four-year contract at the King Power Stadium.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityThough Tielemans was ‘happy’ to be linked with ‘big clubs’ like United and Arsenal, he insists Leicester is the right fit for him at this stage of his career.‘During the transfer window, I was happy of the interest of certain big clubs,’ he said ahead of Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against San Marino and Scotland.‘I needed to make a choice for my young career and I think it was the right one.

Batesville, In. — The latest report from the analysts at WalletHub would suggest the tri-state area is not all that “green.”Researchers looked at all 50 states and compared them with 27 key metrics to make the rankings. Ohio led the area at #35, Indiana was next 40 and Kentucky was determined to be the 48th least green state in the country.A link to the full study is here.
Published on April 24, 2016 at 10:50 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ A group of Louisville players gathered in the concourse of the Carrier Dome after the team’s 13-10 loss to Syracuse. Maybe UofL’s biggest individual loss that led to its defeat was at the draw circle, where Kayla Treanor helped SU win 16 draws. The Cardinals won nine.Louisville’s Kaylin Morissette, who has won the most draw controls per game in the country, walked up to a group of teammates and a few parents after the game.“Keep being strong on the draw,” the parent said to Morissette.“I’ll do my best,” she responded before posing for a picture.But most players’ and teams’ best has hardly been enough to beat Treanor this year or ever in her career. On Saturday, Treanor even won 12 draws to herself compared to Morissette’s four. And the senior SU attack piled that on top of her two goals and three assists.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Today I looked at, a couple goals break the record, but to have 12 draw controls against the No. 1 draw control person in the country, who only had four, was amazing,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “So, I thought that was her biggest feat of the day was dominating the top draw control person in the country.”Jordana Rubin | Web designerThis is the time of year when Treanor should be able to look back on all she’s done, because over the last four years she’s proven to be one of the best women’s lacrosse players ever. In addition to leading Syracuse to the win on Saturday, she broke the career record for goals at Syracuse.That record was a long time coming for a player who has been No. 5 Syracuse’s (14-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) best for the last two seasons. Now is the time to understand what Treanor has done, independent of this postseason, is nothing short of amazing. In addition to being second in career points and first in career goals, she’s helped SU get to each of the last three seasons’ final weekends. But instead of looking back, Treanor deflected to her teammates.“I guess I feel really lucky to have played here and to have played with such good players because there’s a lot of people before me that set the path,” Treanor said, “and without my teammates I would have never gotten these opportunities and without playing on good teams you don’t get as many opportunities as I’ve been so fortunate to have.”Fans already knew Treanor’s next goal would break the record. After her first goal, the public address announcer let everyone know Treanor had tied it. Then there was a false alarm of sorts, too — a Treanor goal was disallowed at halftime but not before it was announced as her record-breaking goal.Yet, after Treanor’s actual record-breaking goal, the fans gave half an ovation. Treanor ran back to the draw circle before the crowd’s clapping could even really start. As fans clapped, she hardly looked around. She just patted the pocket of her stick and waited for the referee to place the ball between her and Morissette.“Definitely with the momentum of the game, that goal,” Treanor said of how sweet the goal was, “We needed a score, we were not doing well in the second half and we needed a score.”That’s the way it’s always been for Treanor.Hannah Wagner | Staff PhotographerEven as Treanor walked into the press conference, she donned a sweatshirt that read “NCAA lacrosse.” She’s always looked ahead, because how she defines herself, at least publicly, is how her team performs. And what she wants is the NCAA lacrosse championship that has so nimbly slipped out of SU’s grasp the last three seasons.Regardless of the postseason, regardless of how Treanor judges her success, regardless of whether attaining the goals record was a bucket-list item or not, Treanor has changed the game all while innovating the work of former SU players Katie Rowan, Alyssa Murray and Michelle Tumolo. All while making Syracuse into an elite program.Sure, part of that is having Gait, possibly the greatest men’s player of all time. But Treanor has been with the program for more than 20 percent of its existence and has molded it as much as any player before her. Her stick skills are almost unparalleled now or in the sport’s history and she hasn’t just been one of SU’s best players ever, she’s been one of the sport’s best players ever. A championship and a Tewaaraton Award would cement her legacy. There’s no doubt about that.But as the final stretch of Treanor’s career reaches its end — a stretch she’ll surely use as a benchmark — what she has done to this point should be recognized.Chris Libonati is an Asst.

Tipperary man, and former Irish rugby player, Alan Quinlan says it was a disappointing end to a good game. Photo: © lionsrugby.com Lions Head coach Warren Gatland says he didn’t use his front row replacements during today’s draw because he wanted to give potential test players as much game time as possible.The visitors drew 31-all with the Hurricanes in Wellington with Tommy Seymour scoring two tries and George North also going over.The Lions were 31-17 up in the second half however Iain Henderson was yellow carded, and during that time the Canes scored two converted tries.

West Moberly First Nations wants the B.C. Supreme Court to overrule a government decision that allows mining in caribou habitat.In September, the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources approved a bulk-sample permit to Vancouver-based First Coal Corporation. On Thursday, the First Nation announced it has filed a petition with the Supreme Court to over-rule that decision.Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly First Nations says the proposed facility sits in Burnt Pine caribou habitat – a region that Willson says has only 11 remaining caribou.- Advertisement -He says Elders and government scientists agree that coal mining in the habitat will have significant adverse effects.[asset|aid=2077|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=09cba90f800217136460650f42562b20-Chief 1_1_Pub.mp3]Willson says Dr. Dale Seip, a Wildlife Ecologist from the Ministry of Forests and Range, has stated that the caribou herd is ‘critically endangered’.Advertisement West Moberly does not have a Memorandum of Understanding with First Coal.
