CONFIRMED! Jurgen Klopp to leave Borussia Dortmund

first_img Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp 1 Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer – and has opened the door to a Premier League move.The 47-year-old has three years left on his contract but Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told a press conference on Wednesday that the club had agreed the release him early from his deal.Klopp has been in charge of the club since 2007 and enjoyed huge success, leading them to the Bundesliga title twice, the German Cup once and to the final of the Champions League in 2013.This term has been more of a struggle, with Dortmund currently sitting 10th in the Bundesliga after a disastrous start.Klopp’s exit still comes as a major surprise, and his availability is likely to alert a host of clubs across Europe.“I really think the decision is the right one. This club deserves to be coached from the 100% right manager,” he told the assembled media on Wednesday.“I always said in that moment where I believe I am not the perfect coach anymore for this extraordinary club I will say so.”Manchester City have been installed as favourites to land the highly-rated coach, with Manuel Pellegrini’s future uncertain.Arsenal have also been linked with the charismatic German in the past, but a move to north London looks highly unlikely with Arsene Wenger fully expected to remain in charge.last_img read more

C22 Solvent 4oz Spray : Great remover for tapes

first_imgDoes what it says on the tin. I’ve struggled for years trying to get a product that gets my tape in extensions out without wrecking my hair this was so easy to use, very oily when using it but one wash and hair is fine and it’s so quick to get the extensions out. Its very good but smells awful. Works great and should last a long time. C22 Solvent 4oz Spray for Lace Wigs & Toupees : Didn’t think this product would get the bonding glue to give in my hair but it did deffo will buy again . Works like a dream when you need that wig off honey . You gotta use a lot of the spray for glue build up but works great. Gets sticky glue off with no fuss. Excellent for removal of tape in hair extensions, nice smell too. This solvent is brilliant, it really takes off the glue from your hands and wig, with a lovely smell of orange. I have just ordered and received 2 bottles. Very happy with this product and seller,the cleanup time is highly reduced with this product,would definatley reccommend this product to others. The best lace release i’ve ever used. Great orange-smelling spray which is very refreshing. Only snag is the spray is a tad on the oily side. I like how this product delivers its promises. With one or a few sprays, it works magically. Arrived on time and in good condition as expected. Best hair remover i have found so far highly recommend. Worked really well in dissolving the glue, and left a pleasant smell. Have used it sparingly, so it’ll last a while. The product works well on my hair line , but not so well getting rid of the glue on a lace wig. Perfect for removing pro flex tape, spray it on and a minute after (or 30 secs) the extensions glide off, smells orangy and not too oily, washes off hair with just one standard shampoo. Only thing i have found in 10 years that gets the horrible glue from my extensions out. Only drawback is it makes your hair so sticky afterwards and is a nightmare to get out. But it’s worth it to get the glue out properly. Bottle has lasted ages aswell. Awesome for removing glue from hair tracks wigs and lacefronted wigs also lacefronts, i’d strongly recommend buying this it’s the safest way and very hygienic to remove, smells great too, not too bad in the price as well. Great job but i don’t use glue just super tape at the front of the lace. Theres abit of problem with the spray pump.

He keeps developing all the time and he’s got great feet and pulls a lovely ball back.“Woody is on the spot and it’s a great bit of movement and a good finish because they are not easy.My only gripe was that we didn’t capitalise on so many counter-attacks in the second half, but they’ve shown me enough, yet again, that we are a force when we get things right.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

As per the specific information, the DRI sleuths chalked out an elaborate plan and carried out the operations successfully and finally arrested the carriers. All the six accused are suspected to be residents of Myanmar. They are being interrogated thoroughly. The investigating officials are trying to know the names of the others who are involved in the incident. They suspect that the accused are a part of an international smuggling gang. It may be mentioned here that in the past few days, the DRI officials have raided various parts of the state and seized gold. The Election Commission is also keeping a tab on the development as a huge amount of gold has been seized from various places in the city following the election notification. It may also be mentioned that the Siliguri unit of the DRI a couple of months ago had seized gold bars weighing over 9 kg that had been smuggled from Myanmar to India through the Indo-Myanmar border in Manipur.

No raids but verification exercise EC on IT action against Kanimozhi

first_imgNew Delhi: No raids but a verification exercise was carried out by a joint team of Income Tax and police officials at the premises of DMK leader Kanimozhi in Tuticorin on April 16, the Election Commission said Thursday.The poll panel has sought a report of the incident by tonight from the special expenditure observer deployed by it in Tamil Nadu, officials said. The action was taken under Section 131 of the Income Tax Act (power regarding discovery and production of evidence). Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’It was a verification exercise and not searches, the EC’s Director General (Expenditure), Dilip Sharma, told reporters here. The commission has sought a report from the special expenditure observer, Madhu Mahajan, and it is expected to be sent by tonight, he said.

The Best Mens College Basketball Teams Just Arent Very Good This Year

If Michigan State were as strong as the average top-rated team, it would win this year’s tournament a shade less than 17 percent of the time, instead of little more than 10 percent. The same goes for Villanova, a likely No. 1 seed currently ranked second by Pomeroy; instead of being expected to win nearly 18 percent of the time, the Wildcats’ low rating limits them to odds below 12 percent. In fact, the collective tournament win probability for Pomeroy’s top 3 teams is about 14 percentage points lower than it would be in a typical season, simply because 2016 has so much parity — the best teams aren’t as good as top teams normally are.Because the NCAA Tournament is a zero-sum game, the rest of the field gains from this lack of top-heaviness. Although pretty much every team ranked No. 4 to No. 25 by Pomeroy benefits some (teams ranked below that don’t really have much of a chance either way), the biggest beneficiaries are positioned in the back half of the top 10 and into the teens: All of this means more teams will have more of a chance this year than in just about any other season in memory. Get ready for one Mad March. March Madness is always rough on favorites. In your typical men’s college basketball season, the statistical favorite goes into the NCAA tourney with only about a 20 percent to 25 percent probability of winning the championship. In other words, even the “best” team is three or four times more likely to lose early than it is to win it all. We can be vaguely confident that one of the top handful of teams will emerge from March’s wreckage unscathed, but that’s about it. Over the past seven seasons, the eventual champ was (on average) the tourney’s seventh- or eighth-most-likely winner beforehand, according to simulations using Ken Pomeroy’s ratings.And this year has the potential for a lot more anarchy than usual. Michigan State is the consensus top team according to a variety of predictive metrics, but that’s not unanimous — there are some solid indicators pointing to Villanova, North Carolina and surging Kansas as well.1The Jayhawks rank first in Jeff Sagarin’s ranking of recent team performance. And if the Spartans truly are the best, they’re one of the weakest top-ranked squads in recent memory. Since Pomeroy began tracking team ratings in the 2001-02 season, only one No. 1 team — the 2005-06 Duke Blue Devils — owned a lower pre-tournament power rating than Michigan State has now. Plus, Sparty might not even earn a No. 1 seed; only 11 of the 77 bracket prognosticators aggregated by Bracket Matrix see the team headlining a region in the NCAA Tournament.This isn’t meant to pick on the Spartans (sorry, Nate!), but it does illustrate that if even the nation’s strongest team has a number of factors limiting its championship odds, it’s going to be an unusually wide-open year for the tournament.To see exactly how much this year figures to depart from the norm, I plugged Pomeroy’s ratings into ESPN’s latest Bracketology projection, calculating each team’s odds of winning the tournament if Selection Sunday goes as Joe Lunardi predicts. Virginia checked in first with a 12 percent probability of winning — significantly lower than the 20 percent to 25 percent chance held by the typical pre-tourney favorite — followed by Villanova at 11.7 percent and Michigan State at 10.4 percent. I then re-simulated the bracket after assigning each team the typical strength connoted by its Pomeroy ranking — i.e., how much better would the top teams’ odds be if they were as strong as in an ordinary season? read more
