Spurs set for new signings

first_img “No worries about that and the people won’t worry about the team because we have a lot of good players that can play like a striker. “We need to be (more) solid than last season because we scored a lot of goals but the problem was we conceded a lot of goals. If we are more solid maybe we can reduce the gap with the top four.” Pochettino continues to be linked with transfers for Stuttgart’s Timo Werner, QPR forward Charlie Austin and West Brom’s Saido Berahino. The latter would likely cost in the region of £20million and represent a transfer policy Spurs have avoided since their disappointing summer in 2013, when the world-record £86million received from the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid was largely squandered. Sporting director Franco Baldini’s reputation has suffered as a consequence but while Pochettino dismissed reports that the Italian is to leave the club, he also said that Spurs’ ability to develop talents like Kane prevents them from needing to spend as they did in 2013, as their rivals – including Liverpool, who paid £32.5million for Christian Benteke – continue to do. “Maybe Liverpool tried to find their Harry Kane but we have Harry Kane,” he said. “The people is very happy that our striker is Harry Kane. If you want to find players to compete with or improve Harry Kane it’s not easy. “My vision is (it’s) better to sign a player from England but it’s true that the market in England is crazy, it’s not easy. It’s better to bring some players from England but it’s not easy, maybe you need to bring some players from Europe. “(Baldini’s not leaving), nothing changed from the last season. Nothing’s changed.” Spurs have signed three defenders in Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer so far this summer, but with Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor both expected to leave the club, Harry Kane is at risk of becoming their sole senior striker. “We have our target, I think in the next few days maybe something (will) happen,” said Pochettino, ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Old Trafford on Saturday to face Manchester United in the opening fixture of the new Barclays Premier League season. Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham will announce a new signing in the next few days. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Online casino on “strong footing” to absorb live sports return

first_imgShare Soft2Bet continues new market drive with Irokobet launch August 26, 2020 Share Related Articles Submit Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 StumbleUpon Alberto Alfieri: Leading the way for Gamingtec’s B2C growth August 25, 2020 SBC News caught up with Soft2Bet CEO Boris Chaikin to discuss whether the recent spike in online casino activity during the break from live sports events could be sustained as Europe’s biggest football leagues kick back into action.Chaikin was asked if the traffic for online casino games – beneficiaries of the COVID-19 pandemic (at least relative to sports betting) – would drop significantly with a more ‘normal’ availability of sports to bet on, rubber stamped by this week’s Premier League resumption. “Yes and no,” he replied. “Casino traffic will be lower but not because of the return of live sports. When people resume their usual lives, they will no longer have the leisure time available during lockdown to enjoy online casino entertainment. “Budgets could be constrained too, due to the anticipated economic consequences of the pandemic and job pause experienced by a significant proportion of the population. “That is not to say that we will see a major drop off in volumes, however; since customer acquisition and engagement over the last few weeks has put us on a strong footing.”Chaikin noted that the Bundesliga, the first of the major football leagues to return, had brought about a significant increase in traffic for sports betting, but not instigated a significant decline in online casino traffic.He admitted that the Premier League is likely to tilt the global casino-sports betting balance to a greater extent than the Bundesliga, but added that he hoped that sports bettors would “continue to enjoy the products they were introduced to during lockdown alongside betting on sports, albeit less frequently, than abandon them entirely”.Chaikin also reiterated that the COVID-19 crisis has magnified the need for gambling operators – and white label providers such as Soft2Bet – to diversify their offering in terms of non-mainstream content, casino games and traditional sports betting favourites.Referring to COVID-19 as a ‘black swan’ that no one expected, he explained: “Navigating the crisis has taught us some valuable lessons that will help shape how the industry moves on, not least the importance of product diversification and versatility.”He added that while online casino as a sector may appear “less vulnerable” than its sports betting counterpart, these ‘unprecedented times’ – combined with regulatory rumblings in the background – dictate that one vertical is never necessarily more stable than another.Gazing into his crystal ball for igaming’s short to mid-term future, he predicted: “The appearance of new solutions, not only for cross-selling but in attracting new players to igaming, will continue to develop in the coming months and drive strategies going forward.”last_img read more

The 21st is the longest day of the year, so folks will be able to paint rocks the color of the forget–me–not flower, a symbol of the disease. Tracy Niedzwiecki works at the senior center and knows how important these fundraisers for those battling the diseases.“I personally have lost a grandmother who has had Alzheimer’s, a great grandmother, and right now in my own family, I have an aunt that suffers from Alzheimer’s so, it’s very important to me to bring awareness,” said Niedzwiecki.Once all of the rocks have been painted, the rocks will be scatted throughout the community. If you find a rock, you can bring back to the center for a small prize. Donations support the Alzheimer’s Awareness Foundation and the senior center’s early onset Alzheimer’s group. Donation suggestions are $5.There will also be a bake sale on the 21st.
