João Félix loses 10% of its value; Lemar continues its fall

first_imgThe rest of the players who lower their price are Koke (from 70 to 60), Morata (from 50 to 45), Savic (from 35 to 32), Blacksmith (from 22 to 20), Llorente (from 30 to 20), Diego Coast (from 25 to 18), Vrsaljko (from 20 to 15), Arias (from 18 to 15), Saponjic (from 3 to 1.5) and Adam (from 1.5 to 1). On the opposite side of the scale are Renan Lodi, Felipe and Ángel Correa, three of the great protagonists of the rojiblanca season. The Brazilian side adds to his potential (he is 21 years old) the amount of minutes he is having on his arrival at the club (he is the sixth player in the squad with more 2,380 minutes), increasing its value from 25 million to 35.Felipe for his part began as a secondary actor, but is currently one of the best players in Atlético this season. Despite his seniority (30 years) the great performance of the Brazilian has made him one of the great centers of Europe and has grown from 25 million to 32 (He had already risen five in December compared to his signing). Finally Ángel Correa, who had one foot outside the club in the summer, is currently the most fit player in the mattress attack. His 7 goals and 8 assists have led him to increase from 35 million to 40. In addition to Oblak and Saúl, Giménez (70), Thomas (50), Trippier (35), Carrasco (28), Beautiful (25) and Vitolo (18) They maintain their market value. The Atlético squad has not come out well of the new calibration on the market value that has carried out Transfermarkt. A common practice every few months of the website specialized in establishing the right price of the players and that has reduced the price of 12 of the members of the rojiblanca workforce, increased that of three and maintained that of the other eight. João Félix is ​​one of those cases which has lost value since the last estimate, dating from the month of December. After signing for Atlético from Benfica for the amount of its clause (127.2 million), its market value reached 100 million, taking into account its age, the price of the transfer and its potential. However, the injuries, the little offensive production and the little participation he has had in recent months has led him to lower his value to 90 million, the second most expensive of the workforce tied with Saul and behind Oblak (100) two of the players who keep their baggage. The Portuguese at 20 years still has a lot of room to recover that lost value. More complicated it has Lemar to return to its highest peak, the 70 million he reached in his signing for Atlético. In December 2018, five months after the transfer, the Frenchman dropped from 70 to 60 million. I would descend to 50 in February 2019, 40 in June and 30 today. A loss of 10 million in each recalibration that has meant that at present its value is less than half that less than two years ago in its signing. last_img read more

Dwayne Star, Action Man set for showdown

first_imgWith no trophies at stake at Caymanas Park today, the 3-y-o and up overnight allowance races over the straight-five course move into the spotlight with eight horses declared.Indications are that it will come down to a straight fight between old rivals DWAYNE STAR and ACTION MAN, second and third, respectively, to SHINING LIGHT in the recent Easter Sprint Cup over 1100 metres.The Lorenzo Robinson-trained ACTION MAN showed good speed in the Easter Monday feature, only to be relegated to third by SHINING LIGHT and DWAYNE STAR, both of whom went down to the wire in a photofinish, with SHINING LIGHT prevailing by a head.ACTION MAN, who is well drawn at post position seven, is almost sure to set off in front under the in-form jockey Aaron Chatrie. But DWAYNE STAR will be a lot closer leaving the quarter pole, especially with three-time champion Dane Nelson now taking the ride.IN GOOD NICKAlso going for DWAYNE STAR is the fact that he had won his three previous races before the Easter Sprint, including one over the straight, and with trainer Patrick ‘Wacky’ Lynch presenting him in good nick, I expect DWAYNE STAR to make amends and win ahead of ACTION MAN and SUPERIOR QUALITY.Significantly, Nelson, the leading jockey so far this season, will leave the island next Thursday, April 21, to ride in Canada for several months. The 31-year-old jockey did a stint in Canada for the first time last year, riding 48 winners.Other firm fancies on the nine-race programme are down in class UNBREAK-ABLE under top apprentice Linton Steadman in the second race; WARTINE in the fourth; DYSFUNCT-IONAL in the sixth race for maiden three-year-olds; GENUINE ARTICLE in the seventh; and MANDEYA in the closing $180,000 claiming race over the straight five course to be contested by the maximum 16 starters.last_img read more

Assessment on closed estates proved viability – Jagdeo

first_img…suggests reopeningOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo claims that he has information that suggests that an assessment was done on the closed sugar estates by the Special Purpose Unit (SPU).According to him, this assessment has proved that the very estates that were shut down which led to thousands being unemployed were viable.“And so, if this is true and I hope the media will ask them … it would be very disturbing, because we believed this to be so, but we asked our Government to do a feasibility study of these estates and the industry before it took any decision toOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeosend home workers and they refused to do that,” he said.Jagdeo noted that the firing of over 7000 sugar workers has now created enormous problems for families and households across the country, especially in rural areas.He said, “To now to do another study to find that these estates with small injection of funds could have been viable would be criminal. So, we believe the estates are viable.”The former Head of State said if the assessment proved to be true and the estates could be made viable, then the Opposition would support the reopening of all the estates.The coalition Government has made its position clear that the move to downsize the industry was a necessary one, as the monies used as annual bailouts were too much.But the Opposition said even if this was the case, the laying off of workers could have been done in stages to allow for them to prepare for alternative employment.Now that the preliminary valuation works of several estates have been completed, the Skeldon, Rose Hall-Canje, East Demerara/Enmore, and Wales Estates are now being advertised for sale.It said it hoped that potential investors would begin visiting the various estates, in order to make assessments of the facilities as part of the preparation of their proposal to the SPU.Head of the SPU, Colvin Heath-London was quoted in a statement from his agency that “work continues apace both with the process being carried out by the [global accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers] PwC and with the efforts of the SPU to maintain the operations of the estates as going concerns until they’re handed over to investors at the end of the process”.Heath-London added that, “progress is also being made with the sale and lease of assets at the Wales Estate, and the conversion of the Skeldon Estate compoundEnmore sugar estateto the Skeldon Heritage Resort has gone very well.”Just last month, the SPU under the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) had responded to statements made by Jagdeo in regard to his criticism of the $30 billion bond acquired by the Unit through commercial banks, both in Guyana and the region.The SPU has not taken lightly those criticisms which seek to suggest that the bond would be wasted and that it was acquired at an unreasonable rate.In a statement, the SPU said it should be noted that as standard for any debt financing, security was required to secure payments to bondholders.According to the SPU, rather than burden the assets of NICIL, which include the Guyana Oil Company, Atlantic Hotels Incorporated and the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), the security of the NICIL bond is simply a guarantee of payment from the Government of Guyana.The duration of the bond is five years, since it is expected that the proceeds of the land sale for GuySuCo would be used to repay the funds, and NICIL wanted to secure the lowest possible interest rate.However, Jagdeo said recently that he was now in receipt of the Private Placement Memorandum for the GuySuCo bond, and having read the contents of that document, he was shocked by what was contained in the agreement, which now leaves more questions than answers.Jagdeo, an economist by training, said the general perception was that Government was raising $30 billion to spend on GuySuCo – on the remaining three estates. However, the memo tells a different story, as it has stated explicitly that the $30 billion would go to long-term projects instead.He used the example of the road and airport expansion projects, where there is an option of repayment of 20 or 30 years at one or two per cent interest. These, he said, are long-term projects. “So that you don’t have big balloon payments,” he declared.However, Jagdeo said that in the case of the GuySuCo bond, this was different because, “in five years, at a 4.75 per cent interest, which is 355 basis points above our treasury bill, the Government of Guyana will have to pay back from the proceeds of NICIL nearly US$40 million in about five years just to service $30 billion.”last_img read more

Aircraft crashes at Canal No 2

first_img…cop suffers broken leg, pilot escapes unhurtA rescue team has been dispatched to Canal Number Two, West Bank Demerara, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) to search for a Cessna aircraft and its occupants – a pilot and a policeman – after it crashed about one mile from the Boeraserie Water Conservancy.This publication understands that the Cessna 182 plane, said to be a Seventh Day Adventist Missionary aircraft, crashed at about 19:00h as it was transporting a body from Arawai to Eugene F Correia International Airport (Ogle airport).Speaking with Guyana Times, Director General of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Colonel Edberg Field explained that the aircraft may have crashed after it reportedly ran out of fuel.He said that he is uncertain whether the plane landed in trees, on land or in the water but, nevertheless, stated that after the crash, the police rank on board contacted his superiors via telephone.

Man City secure resounding win over West Brom in Pablo Zabaleta’s send-off

first_img Manchester City fans bid Pablo Zabaleta a fond farewell in his Etihad send-off Manchester City moved up to third in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 win over West Brom on an emotional night at the Etihad Stadium.Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and Yaya Toure saw City cruise to victory on Pablo Zabaleta’s final home appearance for the club.West Brom were outplayed but claimed a late consolation through substitute Hal Robson-Kanu.The result tightened City’s grip on a top-four position but Arsenal’s victory over Sunderland meant their close battle with the Gunners and Liverpool for Champions League spots would go to the final day.In such form, however, City should be confident of completing the job at Watford on Sunday.There may have been tributes aplenty to Zabaleta, who announced at the weekend he would be leaving the club, and an eagerness to acknowledge other players, including Toure, who could also be leaving.But in terms of business, City were ruthless without needing to hit top gear.They bossed the game from start to finish with West Brom looking disinterested.The Baggies, comfortable in eighth place, had won just one of their previous 10 games and it did seem their minds were already on the summer.The only surprise was it took 13 minutes for City to register a serious effort on goal as Aleksandar Kolarov’s free-kick was palmed away by Ben Foster.After that the chances started to come with regularity as Kolarov had another effort diverted wide by Jesus, Leroy Sane drove across goal and Nicolas Otamendi shot at Foster.The opener came after 27 minutes as Sergio Aguero brilliantly flicked a Toure pass into the path of De Bruyne, who teed up a simple finish for Jesus.It was the Brazilian’s sixth goal in seven starts for City and came from a position on the right of a formidable five-man attacking line.De Bruyne doubled the lead with a composed strike from the edge of the box after Marc Wilson had intercepted a pass from Aguero, who tested Foster himself soon after.Salomon Rondon mustered a rare shot for West Brom but City claimed a third after 57 minutes when Toure played a one-two with Aguero and charged into the box to shoot low past Foster.With his contract situation still uncertain, if the game does prove the Ivorian’s final game at the ground it was a fitting way to bow out.Such was City’s confidence that Vincent Kompany, who for a worrying moment earlier took a blow to the calf and had to run off the knock, attempted an acrobatic volley that flew wide.That delighted the crowd but it was nothing compared to the ovation Zabaleta received when he was brought on in place of David Silva just after the hour.The Argentinian has been a hugely popular figure throughout his nine years at City, a period which has spanned the Sheikh Mansour era. Although he started on the bench, his name was chanted throughout and every touch after he came on was cheered, even when he miskicked to concede a throw-in.Jesus forced Foster to save three times as City chased another goal but it was West Brom who had the final word when Robson-Kanu turned in from Allan Nyom’s cross. 1last_img read more
