SEVILLA 2-1 LEICESTER CITY






Leicester's lifeline: Vardy keeps Foxes in Champions League hunt with vital away goal against Sevilla after they'd fallen two behind

Leicester had done nothing. Nothing to worry Sevilla. Nothing to suggest they had a hope in the rebound. Nothing to indicate this Champions League season was to be anything other than an anomaly, a collection of souvenirs to remind of better days. 

And then the most unusual thing happened. Jamie Vardy scored. Remember when that statement did not cause surprise. Remember when he used to do it for fun. Well, briefly, it was just like old times. Demarai Gray, who made a huge impact as a second-half substitute, worked the ball through to Danny Drinkwater on the left, he whipped it in, and there was Vardy – all movement and poacher’s instinct to put it beyond goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

That Andrew Yakubu By Charly Boy (areafada)








The other day, I was in the midst of those I thought were reasonable people - a small group of lawyers, engineers and realtors or real estate guys, and as usual, the topic of conversation was our dear country Nigeria. Then someone said, "Abegi President Buhari should bring back our corruption," and to my surprise, everyone was laughing. I missed the joke, but I could swear the speaker was expressing the sentiment of the people I was with who were engulfed in a mumu laughter.

Who in Nigeria wey go say him no know say corruption na 99% of our wahala? Abeg why e be say na so so mumu mumu people full dis country? How can anybody govern a people who celebrate corruption the way we do and then cry foul when the damage is done, as though they had no idea where it came from? Kai, weytin be our problem Sef!

The Big Reason Whites Are Richer Than Blacks in America






The gap between blacks and whites in income is big, but nowhere near as big as the gap in wealth. According to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, as of 2013 the median white household had $13 in net wealth for every $1 in net wealth of the median black household. For whites vs. Latinos, the gap was only a bit smaller, $10 vs. $1.

A new study trashes most of the conventional explanations—and solutions—for the wealth gap. It’s called The Asset Value of Whiteness: Understanding the Racial Wealth Gap. It’s by researchers at Brandeis University and a public policy group called Demos. The table of contents says it all:

I Will Never Feel Great Again, Says Tiger Woods






Former world number one Tiger Woods has accepted that he will “never feel great” again after suffering a number of back and knee injuries in recent years.

The 14-times major champion returned to action in December following a 15-month layoff but was forced to pull out of the Dubai Desert Classic last week after the first round due to a back spasm.

“There were a lot of times I didn’t think I was going to make it back. It was tough, it was more than brutal,” Woods told Dubai magazine Vision.

The 41-year-old American has racked up 79 PGA Tour victories in his career but has not won a major championship since 2008.

Donald Trump on Immigration Power: I Can Do Whatever I Want





President Donald Trump defended his power to put limits on who can enter the U.S., saying it shouldn’t be challenged in the courts even as a three-judge panel weighs whether to reinstate restrictions on refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

Trump appeared before a conference of police chiefs and sheriffs in Washington Wednesday, reading from a U.S. statute giving the president authority to stop the entry of “any class” of foreigner. The San Francisco-based court of appeals won’t issue a decision Wednesday, a court spokesman said.

“You can suspend, you can put restrictions, you can do whatever you want,” Trump told the chiefs, after reading the law. “It just can’t be written any plainer or better.”

Earlier, in a posting on Twitter, Trump warned of dire consequences if his ban isn’t reinstated.

MANCHESTER CITY 2-1 SWANSEA






Gabriel Jesus enhanced his growing popularity at Manchester City with two goals on his full home debut, the second coming in added time to snatch a dramatic victory against Swansea at the Etihad. Gylfi Sigurdsson looked as though he had dealt City's title hopes a potentially fatal blow and given Paul Clement's side a vial point in their battle against relegation when he struck in the 81st minute to cancel out the Brazilian's first-half opener. But with almost two of the four added minutes already played, David Silva crossed for Jesus to head goalwards from close-range. Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski kept it out but fumbled the ball, and City's new £27million signing tucked away his third goal in two games; much to the relief of Pep Guardiola as his side go up to third.

Pep Guardiola: 'Maybe I Am Not Good Enough For Manchester City Players'







Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has defended his "amazing" players, and admitted: "Maybe I am not good enough for them."

City have lacked consistency since opening the season with 10 successive wins, and Guardiola conceded defeat in the title race after 4-0 loss at Everton left them 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Their form has raised questions of the quality of Guardiola's squad and whether he believes he has the right players. This is something he resents.

He said: "They are good players. I have respect for the guys, so why would I say the guys are not good?

"So I don't understand the lack of respect for the professionals when they have been amazing players, and (people saying) they are not good enough for me. Maybe I am not good enough for them.
