The awards recognise the top performers in each position during the 2019-20 Champions League campaign, with the shortlist comprising of players with the most votes from a special jury. Both Messi and Ronaldo have always made the final shortlist but this year will see neither man up for the forward’s award. Robert Lewandowski is the hot favourite to win the UEFA’s best forward award, while PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are also in the running. The awards were introduced for the 2016-17 campaign, in a bid to acknowledge the best players in Europe’s elite club competition. A jury, which comprises coaches from the 32 clubs in last season’s group stage and 55 journalists, choose their top three players in each position of goalkeeper, defence, midfield and attack, with five points awarded to their first choice, three for second and one for their third choice. Coaches were not allowed to vote for players from their own teams. The winners for each position will be announced at this year’s UEFA Champions League group stage draw in Nyon, Switzerland on October 1. Man City star Kevin De Bruyne was the only Premier League representative up for an award Read Also: Barcelona celebrate 20 years of Messi’s arrival The UEFA Men’s Player of the Year and UEFA Women’s Player of the Year will also be announced at the event. Last season’s winners saw Alisson pick up the best goalkeeper award while Liverpool team-mate Virgil Van Dijk was nominated as the campaign’s best defender. Frenkie de Jong was awarded the best midfielder while Messi was picked as the Champions League best forward. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Predictably, Bayern Munich have dominated proceedings with seven players nominated across the four categories. Manuel Neuer is up for the best goalkeeper award, along with PSG’s Keylor Navas and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak. David Alaba, Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich dominated the defender list while Thomas Muller and Liverpool-bound Thiago got nods for best midfielder. Manchester City star and PFA Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne is the only Premier League representative on the list but faces stiff competition from the Bayern boys.
Golden State Warriors’ star becomes first unanimous winner of the awardStephen Curry scaled heights never reached by NBA greats such as Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and LeBron James when he became the first unanimous winner of the league’s Most Valuable Player award.A day after returning from injury to play-off action with an explosive performance for the Golden State Warriors, Curry swept all 131 first-place votes to earn the game’s highest individual honour for a second straight season.He joined Johnson, Jordan and Steve Nash as the only guards to win the honour in consecutive campaigns, having dazzled NBA fans during the regular season with one astonishing display of shot-making after another. Already established as one of the league’s greatest ever three-point shooters, Curry led the NBA in scoring with an average of 30.1 points and a record 402 three-point baskets as he led the Warriors to an unprecedented 73-9 mark.The 28-year-old shot a career-high 50.4 percent from the field and achieved a free throw percentage of 90.8 while averaging 6.7 assists and a career-high 5.4 rebounds in 79 games.Curry became just the fourth player in NBA history to average at least 30 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals in a season, following Rick Barry (1974-75), Jordan (three times) and Dwyane Wade (2008-09).A pivotal figure for the Warriors as they clinched the NBA championship last season, Curry earned a total of 1,310 points in balloting for the 2015-16 MVP award.San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard (634) was second, followed by Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (631).Curry’s 2015-16 season is by no means done as he bids to lead the Warriors to a successful defence of their NBA title.Having played in only two of Golden State’s first eight playoff games after being sidelined by an ankle injury and then a sprained knee, the inspirational point guard returned to action with devastating effect on Monday.After a successful warm-up, he came off the bench and poured in 40 points to lift the Warriors to a 132-125 overtime win against the Portland Trail Blazers and a commanding 3-1 lead in their Western Conference semi-final.“I don’t think anyone could have predicted the explosion,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said of Curry, who scored an NBA-record 17 points in overtime. “That was crazy.“The guy had played one basketball game in three weeks.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Notre Dame and UCLA series games were recently added to Wisconsin’s football schedule. The sports editors discuss whether or not these match-up are beneficial for Wisconsin football.Browne: It’s worth adding Notre Dame and UCLA to Wisconsin’s football schedule due to the resulting financial compensation.The Badgers and the Bruins have met 11 times, with UCLA holding a 7-4 edge. UW has won the last three games, but they were the 2000 Sun Bowl, the 1999 Rose Bowl and the 1994 Rose Bowl. The Bruins were ranked No. 14 during their last visit to Madison, and they handed unranked UW a 51-26 defeat.But that was on Sept. 18, 1982. The only thing certain about a UW vs UCLA football game in the year 2030 is that Wisconsin will have an increase in revenue.Notre Dame is one of the most storied programs in all of college football history, thus, a win over them in a system such as the four-team NCAA College Football Playoff selection is crucial to have on your resume during your three-game non-conference schedule.Wisconsin vs LSU at Lambeau Field was the first college game played at the historic NFL stadium and it was a huge success. Adding Soldier Field to the mix on top of the smashing success at Lambeau already spells huge television contract money, not only for Notre Dame, but really for Wisconsin, given that Notre Dame is an independent football conference school and has a likewise independent NBC television contract.Larson:Adding games like Notre Dame and UCLA into our already intense Big Ten schedule match-ups does not bode well for Wisconsin football. While I like the idea of playing successful teams like the Bruins and Fighting Irish in the long run, I think that they should remain postseason games only.With so little margin for error now the Big Ten is divided into East and West, and only one spot is available for each team to advance to the Big Ten Championship, each and every game counts.Wisconsin has a losing record against both teams, with a 4-7 record against the Bruins and 6-8-2 with the Fighting Irish. Both of these records look dismal on paper, and it looks as though both of these match-ups might result in a loss for the Badgers.This would mean four losses for Wisconsin, and four losses that would weigh on them for the rest of the respective seasons. The remainder of each season would be spent trying to overcome that loss, and it would mean that each and every loss becomes a burden that the Badgers must shoulder.Pressure of that kind is the thing that destroys team, not builds them.Schreter: Adding future home and home series with UCLA and Notre Dame could be beneficial for Wisconsin football, but it could also be harmful. This is really dependent on the landscape of college football in the future.In recent years expansion of the four team college football playoff has been a hot topic of discussion within the NCAA. These home and home series will likely be difficult match-ups for the Badgers, but whether or not they end up being worth it is very dependent on the NCAA’s post season setup and what it takes to qualify.If the playoffs remain at four teams, than these difficult out-of-conference games will likely make it exponentially harder for the Badgers to qualify. On the other hand, these games could give the Badger’s a huge strength of schedule a boost and leave them with a larger margin for error in the event that the playoffs are expanded to eight or 16 games.While no protocols have been discussed yet in an eight or 16 team playoff, the Big Ten Champion would almost certainly be given an automatic bid. In this scenario, difficult out-of-conference games like those against UCLA and Notre Dame would give the Badger’s the opportunity for multiple wins without risking their chance at the post season.
Cow: So how did you come to Wellington?Upton: I came from Wichita and was working for Mayflower Travel Trailers and was working down here. I got tired of driving to and from here all the time so we moved down here. Cow: What would be your most memorable moment as a police officer?Upton: Gosh, that’s a hard question to answer. I’d say serving the community with different programs I did – helping the school library and developing the city website.I also received two police awards – one for saving a guy who was trying to jump off a bridge. I also saved a guy from a burning truck. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Sunday is officially the final day for Bill Upton, a Wellington Police Department Captain, who has been on the force for more than 26 years.Friday the WPD held a retirement reception for him at the Public Safety Building.

We have taken two-day vacations but nothing more than that. Cow: So what are your plans for the rest of your life?Upton: Well, I’ve been working part time at Day’s Funeral Home for about a year now. I’m going to keep doing that year round. They are keeping me busy.My wife and I are going to have our first vacation together. We are going to Mount Rushmore in August.

I attended one of their meetings and got hooked. I was on the reserves for two years and logged in about 3,500 hours as a part timer. I was down there so much that they couldn’t get rid of me.So they hired me full time on January 27, 1988, and I’ve been here ever since.
