Arsenal should move on from Jamie Vardy and turn their attentions to Everton’s Romelu Lukaku instead, according to Paul Merson.After Arsene Wenger all but confirmed that the Leicester striker is set to stay with the Premier League champions, the Gunners legend expressed his desire to see Lukaku at the Emirates next season.Merson, speaking on Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, said: “If Arsenal come calling for you, and you don’t come in the first 24 hours then you aren’t signing.“I mean, you are talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world. Everybody wants to play for Arsenal.”Lukaku, who bagged a brace for Belgium against the Republic of Ireland in their second group game of Euro 2016, has been linked with a move away from Merseyside all summer.According to Merson, the Belgian would be a welcome addition in North London, provided the fee is right.“I think he’s a bit different, a bit stronger up front which would help Arsenal,” he added.“I can see why Chelsea let him go; he was one of them that needed the ball over the top. But he was a young kid and I think he’s learnt his trade now.“It just depends how much he is.”
“I think it’s just about giving kids alternatives,” she said. After running laps on Thursday, some students talked about what they do for exercise outside of school. Jessica Ellis, 13, and her mother go to a gym at night and walk on the treadmills. For 12-year-old Brett Wieczorek, time after school is spent hitting the trails on his dirt bike. He rides with his uncle and friends for fun and competes against others on his bike in weekend races. Eighth-grader Eryn Wallerstein runs with her dog and plays soccer and basketball. She said her brother, heavily involved in sports, has always encouraged her in athletics. “I grew up being active because my brother plays ball,” the 13-year-old said. “I’m not one of those girls who is afraid to get dirty.” firstname.lastname@example.org (661)257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Next year another jogathon will raise more funds to furnish the center with 50 Dance Dance Revolution pads. In the popular arcade game, dancers must synchronize their steps to diagrams on a screen. Velarde hopes the equipment will entice students to get more exercise, especially students who aren’t involved in after-school sports and need a place to work out. While many students play soccer, softball and baseball after school, others go straight home under instructions to stay locked indoors, sometimes with siblings to baby-sit, until parents arrive. But those students could still find places at home to jump rope or do sit-ups and jumping jacks, said Taya Poitras, a Canyon Country mother. She hopes the new fitness center will give them more workout options. CANYON COUNTRY – When completed, it will have a 10-foot climbing wall, 16 shiny weight machines and bikes for spin classes. Snazzy athletic club? Not exactly. Expected to open this fall, it’s a new fitness center inside an old gym at Sierra Vista Junior High. “Not only will it transform our school; we’re obviously trying to promote fitness and tackle the obesity issue,” said George Velarde, Sierra Vista’s physical-education department chairman. The school’s students in seventh and eighth grades have raised about $20,000 for the new center through donations from parents and neighbors and a jogathon on Thursday. Teachers and school administrators, who can work out in the new fitness center, also have chipped in.
Luckily, though, we still get to witness Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo with Argentina, Brazil, and Portugal, respectively.Here at talkSPORT.com we can’t wait to see what they’re going to do and one of men on show is set to win the Golden Ball, given to the best player at the World Cup.So who do our writers believe will win the accolade? Scroll down to find out. The first of two Golden Balls this year, I reckon.talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network. Unfairly denied a crack at the 2014 semi-final in his home country, Neymar has unfinished business at the World Cup. The Brazilian people call it ‘Neymar depencia’ and he thrives under the pressure of carrying an entire nation’s hopes on his shoulders. It will be his tournament. Billy Hawkins (Senior Writer) – Lionel Messi 8 Michael Benson (Staff Writer) – Lionel Messi Anton Stanley (Features Editor) – Neymar I am predicting France and Brazil to do very well in the tournament but it seems likely they will face each other in the semi-finals. Whoever wins this game wins the tournament in my eyes and I back Griezmann and co. to come out on top against Neymar and Brazil. 8 In 2014 they gave this award to Lionel Messi even though he didn’t deserve it. However, this time around I believe he will earn it by leading Argentina on an inspired run to glory, rediscovering his best form along the way. 8 Sean O’Brien (Staff Writer) – Neymar Damian Mannion (Deputy Editor) – Neymar Lionel Messi won the Golden Ball at World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Out in Russia, World Cup 2018 is about to kick-off and supporters drooling at the prospect of watching some of the best players in the world over the next month.Some superstars, like Leonardo Bonucci and Arjen Robben have missed the tournament after Italy and Netherlands failed to qualify. 8 8 Joe Coleman (Staff Writer) – Neymar Jackson Cole (Staff Writer) – Antoine Griezmann He was named Player of the Tournament at the last World Cup despite not being the best player, and I’m expecting the same again this year. 8 If Argentina get to the semi-finals we could see Lionel Messi, perhaps a little undeservedly again, win the Golden Ball. Overall, if he’s fit enough, I believe Neymar will prove his ability at the World Cup and fire Brazil to glory. As much as I would love to see an Englishman winning the accolade and give fans something to be optimistic about for the future, you can’t look past Brazilian talisman Neymar. Eccentric, talented and troublesome in equal measure, the 26-year-old has all the ingredients to be the best in the world and I fully expect to see him taking the mantle from Cristiano Ronaldo as the world’s best after this tournament. 8 8
Inishowen Sinn Féin County Councillor Jack Murray has said it is crucial an agreement is reached to make the Greencastle Breakwater completed as soon as possible.Cllr Murray was speaking in advance of today’s Council meeting which will debate his motion calling for a cross-party delegation to meet Minister Simon Coveney in order to agree a framework for the breakwater’s completion.Cllr Murray said “The breakwater project in Greencastle is of crucial importance to the fishing community in North Inishowen. It is also of importance to the tourism industry in our peninsula through the add on benefits to the Greencastle to Magilligan Ferry. “It is also a concern that, in its unfinished state, the breakwater creates a safety hazard for vessels navigating the harbour as it is affecting tidal activity.“The government has invested millions into this project. It makes absolutely no sense to reach this point now and simply leave it to wash away.“Sinn Féin’s TDs have called on the government to invest in public infrastructure such as Greencastle breakwater to boost employment and stimulate the economy. It is economic common sense in times of recession for the state to intervene in this fashion.“I have called for the council to send a cross-party delegation of councillors and senior officials to meet Minister Simon Coveney to agree a framework for the completion of the breakwater as soon as possible. “Due to the support of all parties for this development, I am confident that this motion will be passed on Tuesday and we can take another step in advancing this crucial project.”EndsCLLR MURRAY CALLS FOR COUNCIL DELEGATION TO DEMAND COMPLETION OF GREENCASTLE BREAKWATER was last modified: April 20th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Jack MurrayGreencastle
