Leeds host first Premier League game after 16 years

first_imgRelatedPosts Leeds record first Premier League win in seven-goal thriller EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Leeds United vs. Fulham Venue: Elland Road Kick off: 3PMPremier League football returns to Elland Road for the first time in 16 years today when Leeds United host fellow newly-promoted side Fulham. Marcelo Bielsa’s men made an explosive return to the top fight in a 4-3 defeat to champions Liverpool on the opening weekend, while Fulham were comfortably beaten at home to Arsenal.There was plenty made of the champions versus champions showdown on the opening weekend, and it did not disappoint as Liverpool and Leeds played out a very early and very strong contender for the game of the season.It spoke volumes that as much of the pre-game buzz surrounded last term’s Championship winners as it did last term’s Premier League winners, and the rest of the league was certainly put on alert after watching Bielsa’s side stand toe to toe with Liverpool.Of course, not every game will be such a free-flowing and fearless festival of attacking football – nor such an exhibition of how not to defend – but Leeds will have taken huge belief from how close they ran a team that blew the rest of the league away last season.Ultimately, though, they are left with no points on the board after matchday one, and a much-changed side were also dumped out of the EFL Cup on penalties at home to Yorkshire rivals Hull City on Wednesday night. It is two defeats from two in all competitions since their long-awaited return to the top flight, then, meaning that Saturday’s match against a fellow promoted side is all the more important to get off the mark.Fulham will be aware of exactly what to expect against Leeds – which perhaps Liverpool were not – having faced them twice in the Championship last season, although the most recent of those was the corresponding fixture which they lost 3-0.That was also the scoreline in Fulham’s first game back in the Premier League as they were swept aside by Arsenal in the opening match of the new campaign last weekend.Scott Parker will be hoping for slightly easier tests coming up with Leeds and Aston Villa in their next two games, and they did at least pick up their first win of the campaign in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.A 1-0 triumph at Ipswich Town saw them book a third-round meeting with Sheffield Wednesday next week, while perhaps just as importantly saw star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic get off the mark for the season. The Cottagers will likely need the Serbia international to be firing again today, having only scored 24 goals in their 23 Championship away games last season – a particularly worrying record considering Leeds conceded a league-low 14 times at Elland Road in 2019-20.Leeds United possible XI: Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas, Costa, Klich, Phillips, Hernandez, Harrison, Bamford. Fulham possible XI: Areola, Tete, Ream, Hector, Bryan, Reed, Cairney, Kebano, Onomah, Cavaleiro, Mitrovic.Tags: English Premier LeagueFulham FCLeeds Unitedlast_img read more

NDP to guide job creation: Gordhan

first_img23 October 2013 The government, in collaboration with business and labour, will roll out a number of packages informed by the National Development Plan (NDP) to boost economic growth and job creation in South Africa over the next three years, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan told Parliament on Wednesday. Presenting his medium term budget policy statement in Cape Town, Gordhan said plans were under way to tackle the lack of skills and high jobless rate in the country. The government’s Jobs Fund had already allocated R3.4-billion to some 65 projects that were projected to create 90 000 permanent jobs and about 100 000 training opportunities over the next three years, he said. At the same time, an employment incentive proposal has been tabled to encourage youth employment by sharing the costs of job creation in special economic zones and targeted industries. “To support job creation in special economic zones and for young work seekers, a revised Employment Tax Incentive Bill will be formally introduced in Parliament tomorrow,” Gordhan said. “This forms part of the multi-pronged approach to expanding work opportunities, especially for young people, envisaged in the National Youth Accord.” He said that several projects were under way to contribute to economic growth and job creation, with tax incentives for industrial development projects amounting to R10-billion having been approved over the past three years – these were expected to support investment amounting to R35-billion.

(i have usually been envious of thise who can use hair slides or, as a baby, hair ribbons: 10 minutes with both and that is about the restrict on my hair right before they, very well, ‘slide’ out. ) but i locate these very successful and specifically handy to hold stray wisps that continue to control to wiggle their way out from those beaded, elasticated double combs, which are wonderful for the most component but not fairly enough for me on their individual, permitting odd bits to slip out. I am mostly mattress-certain by means of serious ailment and are not able to bear to have hair straggling round my deal with or neck (but am far too vain to slash it all shorter) and want a way to retain it below handle, even when i snooze. These minimal scarcely-noticeable combs are effective in catching strays, are just about unnoticeable and incredibly sturdy in use. Ultimately, of training course, the enamel commence to break but, in my working experience, only immediately after months of practically constant use. But then they’re very inexpensive to replace, so they are a discount as perfectly as effective wherever several other items are for me.Arrived tremendous quick, specifically as explained.Just what i wanted as appears hard to obtain in the retailers now. Retained hair in location and pretty excellent price and high-quality. I know i’ve stated this for earlier merchandise but brought both of those.Sturdy and effectiveWonderfully colourless!Excellent service!Brilliant hair side combs Fantastic delivery and really well packed, the slides work properly for me and have procured an additional established, incredibly fantastic price.For the revenue these are very good.

My white-haired mom takes advantage of them very satisfactorily, but she has wiry hair and wears it ‘up’. We don’t know how these combs would perform in clean hair, worn unfastened: they may possibly perform quite well, we just will not know from working experience. It is good to find colourless combs: we generally believe that the suppliers are lacking out on a huge industry of gray- and white-haired people today for whom side combs are instruments, not decorations.last_img read more


iPhone 3.0 JavaScript Performance is Even Better Than Apple Claims

first_imgApple has always had a tendency to hype up its statements about the speed of its devices by using just the right benchmarks and just the right products to compare them to. When it comes to the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 3.0 update, however, it looks like Apple might actually have understated some of the speed gains it advertised. Medialets, a mobile advertising and analytics company, ran the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark on the iPhone 3G with the old and new OS versions, as well as on the 3GS. In Medialets’ tests, the speed of the iPhone 3G with the 3.0 almost tripled, and the new iPhone 3GS is another 3 times faster in completing the SunSpider benchmark than the 3G with the 3.0 release. Maybe even more interestingly, the current generation iPhone 3GS only takes 12 times as long to complete the benchmark as a 2GHz Core 2Duo MacBook. This is obviously still a huge difference, but at this rate, we will probably see some pretty incredible performance on the next generation of mobile devices.Good for Mobile Web DevelopersOf course, these are benchmarks and don’t necessarily correlate directly into a superior user experience, but it is good to see that even iPhone 3G users will see significant speed gains from the 3.0 release. This should give mobile developers quite a boost, as they can now develop and run more complex, cross-platform compatible web apps that won’t be hindered by the mobile browser’s performance, though the Android-powered G1 is still pretty slow according to Medialets and the Palm Pre sees the same performance as a 3G with the 3.0 OS. For now, however, there are also still a few million iPhone 3G users who haven’t updated their phones’ operating system yet… frederic lardinois Tags:#Apple#news#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
