Moyes fumes at West Ham rebel after new contract offer rejected

first_imgWest Ham boss, David Moyes, has said he was “disappointed” that exciting youngster Jeremy Ngakia has rejected a new contract. Injury concern – West Ham manager David Moyes Ngakia moved up to the Hammers‘ Under-23s side last summer and Moyes handed him his first-team debut in January. The 19-year-old has made three further Premier League appearances but will not be at the club next season. He has rejected a new contract and it remains unclear whether he will finish the protracted campaign with the club. “We are really surprised and disappointed that Jeremy is not going to stay at West Ham,” Moyes told the Evening Standard. “We like him a lot, we’ve given him his debut and I’m a manager who has done that many times in my career, including Wayne Rooney, Ross Barkley, Jordan Pickford and others.Advertisement Loading… “Jeremy is another one and I feel he is making a mistake choosing not to stay with us. We’ve trusted him in big games and everyone likes him at the club.” Moyes also said Ngakia’s decision would reflect badly on West Ham’s academy. “I also feel it’s a kick in the teeth for the academy, because they have developed a player for the first team and he’s not going to stay. We’re also really disappointed with his decision not to stay beyond June 30. “I don’t agree with that and I also think it’s something the Premier League should not allow to happen, because it means the season is not starting and finishing in the same way. read also:Moyes worried he will be stuck with West Ham deadwood “There’s nothing we can do about that, though, and we are still working with him. We like him, we want him to feel he’s been given the best service we can give and maybe there’s still a little hope that we can change his mind. “We haven’t given up all hope of Jeremy realising he has got it wrong, but I have to say he has told me directly that it is not his choice to stay.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Guardiola faces nervous wait after De Bruyne suffers scare

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Kevin De Bruyne suffered an injury scare as League Cup holders Manchester City moved into the quarter-finals with a 2-0 win against Fulham on Thursday.There was concern for De Bruyne after the City midfielder limped off with what appeared to be a knee injury in the closing minutes.De Bruyne, 27, only recently returned from another knee problem that forced him to miss two months this season, limiting him to five appearances to date.City manager Pep Guardiola will hope his influential Belgian star is able to make a quick recovery as they head into a busy period featuring crucial Champions League fixtures and the Manchester derby.“He’s being checked by the doctor. Right now I don’t know if it’s nothing or something serious,” Guardiola said.Until the injury, Guardiola felt it was the most complete performance of De Bruyne’s comeback, but now he must fret over his fitness again.“I think today Kevin is back. The Kevin we know,” he said. “Today he was involved in offence and defence. Hopefully what happened in the last minute is not serious.”De Bruyne’s injury overshadowed a memorable evening for youngster Brahim Diaz.Diaz was making only his third appearance of the season and the promising Spanish striker seized his chance with a brace at the Etihad Stadium.The 19-year-old’s goals ensured City advance to face Leicester or Southampton in the last eight as they bid to retain the trophy.Diaz has been linked with a move to Real Madrid among other top European sides, but Guardiola confirmed City are keen to hold onto their hot prospect. “He knows the desire we have and what we want for all the young players,” Guardiola said.“They know how we want to protect them and to try to help them understand the way we want to play.“We want him. In the end it won’t depend on us, it is them. It is the agent, him, his family, they will decide.”With the English champions having won at Tottenham in the Premier League on Monday, Guardiola rested many of his stars among 10 changes.Diaz was one of those who came in, while De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus also featured against Premier League strugglers Fulham.Prior to his injury, De Bruyne had been dominant and he quickly tested the Fulham defence with a run and shot.Foden brought Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico into action with a powerful strike.But it was his fellow teenager Diaz who opened the scoring with his first City goal in the 19th minute.A short corner found its way to Vincent Kompany at the far post and Diaz ran on to his header down to hit a powerful shot which deflected past the goalkeeper off Aleksander Mitrovic.Danilo nearly added City’s second when the defender weaved into the penalty area before unleashing a searing effort which struck the outside of a post.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Jorstad Creek Announces Grand Opening of Yarn Manufacturing Shop and Retail…

first_imgFacebook58Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Jorstad CreekJorstad Creek is a yarn manufacturing and retail outlet in downtown Olympia.Jorstad Creek announces the grand opening of their new dye studio, open to the public to individuals, groups, and scheduled tours on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, beginning July 24. Located behind the Fish Tale Pub at 414 1/2 Legion Way SE, Jorstad Creek has converted this former espresso stand and dance club into a beautiful new location for their yarn manufacturing and retail outlet.Jorstad Creek formed as a business four years ago, and made its debut with hand-dyed and locally grown wool yarns at the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival in Tacoma, Washington. Since then the company has focused on building a market of enthusiastic knitters for locally grown yarn from nearby farms as well as luxury imported artisan dyed yarns. “Stepping in to having our own public location is huge for us. Until now we’ve been traveling the state to fiber shows and meeting people in their communities. Now we will be able to show our own community we are happy to live and work here. I am also hoping the many friends made at these shows will come to Olympia to see the studio, try the yarns, see new seasonal colors, and knit awhile in the knitting lounge,” stated Kerry Graber, owner.Jorstad Creek yarns can be found in three yarn stores in the northwest: Yorkshire Yarns in Tacoma, Maker’s Mercantile in Renton, and Bazaar Girls in Port Townsend. The company expanded into wholesale with the help of these three local yarns stores, and looks to expand into more stores with the much larger studio space for production. “The knitting community is very networked and supportive of local businesses. More than that, knitter’s encourage each other and provide a creative energy that fuels enthusiasm for this craft. I hope the new studio space inspires visitors as well as the local designers I work with to create knitting patterns through the BK Collective. We work together to publish inspired projects for knitters,” added Graber.Individuals or groups interested in visiting the studio can drop in during regular hours, or schedule a tour by contacting Jorstad Creek at [email protected] or 360-451-4146 during business hours.last_img read more
