About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Solskjaer refusing to criticise Man Utd players in defeatby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is refusing to criticise his players after defeat at West Ham.Solskjaer refused to hang his players out to dry despite their latest disappointment.He said: “The players are doing what I’m asking them to. There are key moments in games that can tip these games in our favour compared to theirs and you make maybe a bad decision on a pass – left, right, centre – but the attitude and desire is there.”That’s not the problem. It’s the quality in our decision-making, sometimes in the execution. It’s a good group to work with. They are determined. Sometimes along the road, we are going to hit some bumps, as we’ve said, some highs and lows.”This group is out there determined, they showed the desire, it was a good atmosphere in the dressing room. They’ve got the focus right.”
Frank Kaminsky Katy PerryKaty Perry’s name has surfaced in the college sports world for a few different reasons over the past several months. It’s not surprising she has a lot of appeal to college athletes, and it appears Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky is smitten with the 30-year-old California native. So close that it felt real @katyperryA photo posted by Frank Kaminsky III (@fskpart3) on May 18, 2015 at 2:25pm PDT That’s a classic (and hilarious) photo.Smart move on Kaminsky’s part to tag Perry in the post. He won multiple national Player of the Year honors this season, and is about to be drafted somewhere in the first round of next month’s NBA Draft. His stock has never been higher, so might as well take your shot while you can.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had tweeted on Sunday in this connection, stating that the people of India had the right to know what happened to Netaji after he went missing from Taihoku airport. The Centre has declassified documents on Netaji but those do not throw any significant light on the case.

It may be mentioned that director Srijit Mukherjee is making a film on Gumnami baba, who used to stay at Naimisharanya in Uttar Pradesh, on the lines of the Manoj Mukherjee Commission’s report.

Ban Ki-moon said on Sunday that he had invited Tehran to attend the talks.The opposition stipulates that Iran must withdraw its troops from Syria and officially accept the Geneva communique in Syria if it wants to attend the conference.The Geneva communique calls for cessation of violence by both the government and armed opposition, release of prisoners, freedom of movement for journalists, freedom of association and full humanitarian access.Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for US Department of State, in a statement in response to Ban’s invitation, said the invitation should be cancelled if Iran does not fully and clearly accept the Geneva communique.The international conference, so-called “Geneva-II”, to find a political solution to the longstanding conflict inSyria is scheduled to begin Wednesday in Montreux.Brokered by the US and Russia, the conference is set to bring both sides of the major conflict together, as the main opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, agreed to attend after months of reluctance to commit.More than 100,000 people have been killed in three years of conflict which also internally displaced more than 6.5 million people.

Kentucky freshman center Nerlens Noel will undergo surgery on his left knee – injured Feb. 12 at Florida – on Tuesday by renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews.James will operate on Noel to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament, which will take Noel six to eight months to fully recover. Scott Mair of University of Kentucky Sports Medicine will observe and coordinate Noel’s rehabilitation process, according to ESPN.com.Before Noel suffered the injury against the Florida Gators, the 6-foot-10 freshman was projected as a lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, which influenced his decision when to have the surgery. He was leading the nation with 106 blocks before getting hurt.“Due to the unique timetable for Nerlens’ recovery in regards to the NBA Draft deadline, the University of Kentucky and Noel’s family thought it was in his best interest to have his surgery performed by Dr. Andrews in Florida,” Kentucky athletic department spokesman DeWayne Peevy said in a statement.Having Andrews to perform the surgery allows Andrews the accessibility to communicate with NBA personnel regarding his post-surgery recovery since Andrews has strong ties to NBA franchises. Kentucky is prohibited from speaking with NBA teams.Wildcats coach John Calipari declined to comment on Noel’s return to the team when asked during a teleconference on Monday.Noel, who was initially expected to have to surgery within two to three weeks of the incident, will not be with team at the Southeastern Conference tournament beginning Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn.“After talking with my family, I decided to schedule my surgery over spring break so I wouldn’t miss as much class,” Noel said in a statement. “I wish all my teammates luck in the SEC tournament and look forward to getting back to Lexington as soon as I can to begin my rehab and finish my school work.”The Wildcats have been inconsistent without Noel in their starting rotation, going 4-3 without him. They are currently 21-10 overall and 12-6 in SEC in play. They suffered a 30-point drilling to Tennessee in their first game without Noel, losing 88-58. But they managed to pull off three consecutive wins after the loss.Their inconsistent play had the reigning national champions on the bubble to reach the NCAA tournament until they defeated the Gators Saturday 61-57, which earned them a No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. But they cannot afford a bad loss in the SEC tournament if they want to make it back NCAA tournament.
