The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere was snubbed in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the 2018 World Cup. A news he took badly by showing how disappointed he was on his Twitter.“Think its about time I had my say,” he wrote, a few days after Gareth Southgate’s 23-man squad for the tournament in Russia was revealed.“It goes without saying that I’m naturally incredibly disappointed to have been left out of the England squad for the World Cup. I’ve felt fit, sharp and strong all season and believe I should be in the squad.“And given the chance, I could have made a real impact. However, I have to respect the manager’s decision and would like to wish the whole squad all the very best for the tournament.“I will always be an England fan and will be supporting the boys with the rest of the nation.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.However, Southgate stated to Wilshere’s lack of form, rather than fitness, behind his decision not to include the 34-cap international in his 23-man party.“Jack had a good spell in the lead up to Christmas and just after. He was not as effective towards the end of the season,” said Southgate.“He hasn’t played a game for us. We were really pleased with the way the team played in November and March.“The only player we’ve added into midfield area is Fabian Delph. Once you make a call, particularly with senior players, then you have to look at the standby list as a separate entity.”But it seems that there was in fact another reason for Wilshere’s World Cup snub – according to the player himself – who joked on social media. He completed the post with a rolling eyes emoji, making light of his disappointment.
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu doesn’t expect Manchester United to sell Paul Pogba in January, but didn’t rule out making a move for himThe 2018 World Cup winner is understood to be considering his United future after another public spat with manager Jose Mourinho.The pair’s relationship has hit an all-time low after Mourinho stripped Pogba of the vice-captaincy and they were seen arguing with each other in a training session last week.Both Juventus and Barcelona have been linked with a move for the unsettled Pogba, but Bartomeu suggested that rumours of an impending exit for the French midfielder are unlikely.Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“I read these rumours – not just Pogba but a lot of players. Most of the teams don’t want to sell their players. They want to grow,” Bartomeu told The Times.“When you hear from agents that a certain player is on the market – and I am not saying that about this player, but generally – I will sometimes call the CEO and say ‘Is it true you want to sell this player?’.“Usually, they say ‘No way, not for sale’ and that’s the end of it.”

Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Gaming The Konami TurboGrafx-16 mini game console harkens back to the company’s 1980s home game console. Konami Konami Digital Entertainment on Tuesday took the wraps off the TurboGrafx-16 mini. The gaming console is a compact version of the company’s 1980s version.The console is small enough to fit into gamers’ palms but comes with a full-size controller, the Japanese game giant said Tuesday at the E3 game expo in Los Angeles. The console will come preloaded with an initial handful of retro-like games, including R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer and Alien Crush.The TurboGrafx-16 mini will be released in North America, while variants called PC Engine Core Grafx and PC Engine mini will be released in Europe and Japan, respectively. Details about pricing, availability and additional games planned weren’t made available. TurboGrafx-16 was a cartridge-based home video game released in the US in 1989. Competing with the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, it featured an 8-bit CPU and an optional add-on that stored the games on CD-ROM. The line was discontinued in 1994. $520 at HP Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go.

Kolkata: Darjeeling, which had always been a favourite summer destination for tourists, is once again set to witness a record footfall during this season, as Kolkata-based tour agencies are seeing an unprecedented number of bookings this year.The tour operators have expressed their gratitude to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, whose able leadership has resolved the issues related to Darjeeling. Due to the Gorkhaland agitation, there had been a dip in the tourist footfall in the past one and half years. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAccording to a tour operator on Lenin Sarani, many people have already placed their bookings for Darjeeling, during Durga Puja. The number has been increased a few times compared to the previous year. Last year, the other hill towns in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand had seen significant influx of tourists from Bengal, as agitation was going on in Darjeeling.”There is always a trend among the Bengalis to go to Darjeeling during the summer and Durga Puja. In the past one and half years, there had been a dip in the tourist flow to the hill station. The situation has become normal now, with people showing interest in Darjeeling again. This has become possible due to the prolonged efforts of our Chief Minister,” one of the officials of the tour operator said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedPeople from Bengal and other states preferred to go to other hill stations, due to the continued agitation. The agitation had hit tourism hardest in the last year. The worry of the tourists soared after Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung warned the tourists to stay away from Darjeeling, causing a serious economic crunch for the traders and hoteliers in the hill station.Things were getting worse as the tourists from Bengal and outside preferred not to visit Darjeeling due to the continuous threats of the GJM chief. The Bengal Chief Minister had lashed out at the GJM chief’s warning to the tourists, by saying ‘asking tourists to keep away amounts to keeping away Goddess Lakshmi’.The hospitality and transport sectors were badly affected as the people deserted one of India’s oldest hill stations. The issue was resolved following prompt and effective action by the Chief Minister and also through implementation of various development schemes in the hill station.A Siliguri-based tour operator said that Darjeeling is expected to see record footfall during this year’s Puja and Christmas. They have already started taking bookings for the Puja holidays in October.
