Crystal Palace have been left ‘furious’ by Arsenal’s opening bid for Wilfried Zaha (Picture: Getty)Crystal Palace were left ‘furious’ and ‘incensed’ by Arsenal’s opening £40million transfer offer for Wilfried Zaha, reports say.Ivory Coast international Zaha, Palace’s key player over the past four seasons, rocked the Eagles last week by pushing for a move to the Gunners.Zaha supported Arsenal as a child and ‘dreams’ of playing for the club, according to his brother Judicael, despite the absence of Champions League football at the Emirates.Arsenal are keen to sign Zaha but cannot meet Palace’s £80m valuation and tabled an offer of half that amount on Monday.ADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityBut the bid was not even considered by Palace and left the south London club ‘incensed’, according to BBC Sport.AdvertisementAdvertisementIt is claimed Palace are furious at Arsenal’s attempt to sway Zaha but would still be willing to sanction the forward’s departure if the right money is on the table.The Eagles have already sold one key player this summer – highly-rated full back Aaron Wan-Bissaka join Manchester United last week – and know they can demand a considerable fee for Zaha.The Ivorian signed a new five-year contract at Selhurst Park last year but is desperate to move on.

Press Release, Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf respectfully requested a Joint Session of the General Assembly at a time that is convenient for the House and Senate this fall. The purpose of this session would be to address the members of the House and Senate about our collective efforts to lead the nation in combatting the opioid and heroin crisis facing Pennsylvania.“After consultation and discussion with legislative leaders, I believe we share the view that we can make the most profound and positive impact for the people of Pennsylvania by dealing with this issue as part of the remainder of the 2015-16 Legislative Session through a Joint Session, rather than calling a Special Session,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I want to thank the House and the Senate for their dedication to ensuring that those suffering from the disease of addiction are getting the treatment that they need. However, we can and should, do more. I look forward to continuing to work with the legislature to continue to address this epidemic that we all care deeply about.”After extensive conversations throughout the summer, Governor Tom Wolf and legislative leaders decided that the most timely and efficient way to make progress in the fight against the opioid epidemic would be to call a Joint Session, rather than a special session as previously discussed. A special session would require bills to be reintroduced with co-sponsor memos to be circulated, and each new bill would take a minimum of six legislative days to reach the Governor’s desk. For more information, read “Why Governor Tom Wolf Called a Joint Session to Address the Opioid Epidemic.”Together with the legislature, the Wolf administration has made great strides in battling this epidemic. The 2016-2017 budget provided funding to implement 45 centers of excellence (COE) throughout the commonwealth that will treat nearly 11,000 people with substance use disorder. These centers will work with those suffering from the disease of addiction to make sure they get the comprehensive, holistic treatment they need to beat their disease.Last month, the Pennsylvania Department of Health went live with the newly re-designed Prescription Drug Monitoring Program that will allow prescribers and dispensers to query and report information regarding the number of opioids prescribed, and to whom.The administration also recently announced new prescribing guidelines for the safe and effective use of opioids in order to reduce the pattern of over-prescribing painkillers that have a high risk for abuse. These guidelines will help fight back against opioid abuse and heroin use before those habits even begin.Under the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Program’s leadership, Pennsylvania’s Prescription Drug Take-Back Program is helping communities properly dispose of unused and unwanted prescriptions. To date, there are nearly 520 take-back boxes located at police stations across Pennsylvania. Since 2015, more than 145,000 pounds of prescription drugs were taken back and destroyed.Substance use disorder affects people all across the commonwealth and that is why the search for effective solutions enjoys broad bi-partisan support. Together with the legislature, Governor Wolf will continue to fight to make sure Pennsylvanians have the resources we need to get our arms around this crisis.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf September 16, 2016 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Governor Wolf Requests Joint Session to Address Opioid Epidemic
City’s biggest ever win over Spurs means they have now scored an incredible 24 times in six home league fixtures this season. Their overall tally stands at 34, which has them on track to eclipse Chelsea’s total from their 2009-10 title-winning campaign. Press Association “I hope so,” said Toure, when asked about emulating Chelsea’s massive total. “We have the strikers. The two guys up front are unbelievable.” Indeed, they are the best in the business according to Jesus Navas, who kick started his season with a two-goal haul against Spurs, including a 14-second opener. “I think they are the best in the league,” said Navas. “They are scoring very easily at the moment. The Premier League suits their style. “Aguero is in really good shape. We all know about his capabilities. “And I am not surprised about Negredo because I already knew how good he was. “He has always loved contact with defenders so this is the perfect league for him.” For his part, Toure was keen to point out City are not a two-man team, with Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic both eager to play a part too. Having played a central role in the Blues’ first title since 1968 when they won the championship in such thrilling style with virtually the last kick of the 2011-12 season, Toure knows hammering teams on home soil alone will not be enough to get the job done. No side has won the Premier League after losing four of their opening 11 games but City are now favourites to do exactly that. However, the Ivorian accepts an improvement in that abysmal away form must come quickly. “At the moment it is quite difficult but we will try to find a way,” he said. “At home we are very prolific. Away is more difficult. “Either the referee is not fine or the fans or the opponent try to make it hard. “That is part of football. That is the Premier League. That is why it is the best league in the world. “We are trying to find a good balance because we have to come back. It is very important to start winning away from home.” The situation might not look quite so strange if City had lost to teams at the forefront of the battle for honours. Other than Chelsea, that has not been the case, with Cardiff, Aston Villa and Sunderland not occupying places in the top half of the table. “It is not just the big teams who are the problem. It is the normal teams,” said Toure. “It is always difficult away. “But we know if we are to win the title again we have to win our away games. That is what the manager is working on.” Not bad for a team that has recorded just one victory on their travels this term and were beaten at rock-bottom Sunderland a fortnight ago. It was that shock defeat at the Stadium of Light that triggered those words of wisdom from Pellegrini. “The manager’s speech before the game was unbelievable,” said Toure. “It is always difficult when you lose a game like we did at Sunderland. It is hard for the players. “Football is so strange. “But we have come together as a team because we want to regain the Premier League.” Goals will not be a problem as long as Sergio Aguero maintains his present form. The Argentina star is top of the scoring charts with 10, having bagged another brace at the Etihad Stadium, whilst strike partner Alvaro Negredo is not far behind on six, adding another to his tally after being the major influence on Sandro’s own goal. Yaya Toure is targeting Chelsea’s record Premier League goals haul of 103 after revealing Manchester City’s 6-0 thrashing of Tottenham on Sunday was inspired by manager Manuel Pellegrini’s pre-match team talk.
A prosecutor on Wednesday announced that three men have been indicted on murder charges in last February’s killing of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.Prosecutor Joyette Holmes says a Glynn County grand jury has indicted Travis McMichael, Greg McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan Jr. on charges that include malice and felony murder, in the Arbrey’s death.Arbery was shot of death on Feb. 23, when the Greg and Travis McMichael, a white father and son, pursued the 25-year-old Black man, who was jogging in their neighborhood. Greg McMichael told police that he suspected Arbery was a burglar, and that Arbery attacked his son before being shot.Bryan, who lives in the same community, said he saw the McMichaels driving by and decided to join the chase, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent testified earlier this month.The McMichaels were arrested May 7, two days after Bryan’s cellphone video appeared online.Bryan was subsequently arrested on May 22. An arrest warrant said that he tried “to confine and detain” Arbery without legal authority by “utilizing his vehicle on multiple occasions” before the man was shot.In addition to malice murder and felony murder charges, the McMichaels and Bryan are each charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count each of false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

Defender Kweku Andoh is the player to watch as Hearts of Oak travel Bekwai to face New Edubiase on the opening day of the 2013-14 season.Hearts edged past their opponent 1-0 at the Gyamfi’s Park last season and will hope for another favourable result on Sunday.Andoh who joined the capital-based side from Berekum Chelsea is confident of making his Hearts Premier League debut on a positive note.“Edubiase will be tough but we’re also confident we can bag the maximum points,” Andoh said“I just joined the club and so I’m hoping to start well. We’re aware of the big task ahead but we beat them at their home grounds last season and can do it again.“I have settled in well and hoping to play a key role for the side this season.”
BEVERLEY SAYS HE’S NOT PAUL, BUT WHO IS BEVERLEY?Beverley said at his introductory news conference, “I am not Chris Paul.” All right, so who is Beverley, the man tasked with replacing Paul as the Clippers’ point guard? Well, Beverley spent the past five seasons with the Rockets and was a first-team all-defensive team performer in 2016-17, when he averaged 9.5 points and 4.2 assists while playing alongside James Harden. Beverley is a tough, annoying guy to play against. If that sandpaper element was absent in the past, then the Clippers addressed it by acquiring Beverley.WHO TAKES THE BIG SHOTS NOW THAT PAUL AND JAMAL CRAWFORD ARE GONE?Griffin? Danilo Gallinari? Beverley? Lou Williams? Austin Rivers? In the past, the obvious answer to that question was Paul or Crawford. Opponents knew it, too. Now, things will be different and that might be a good thing. Unpredictability could make the Clippers more difficult to defend when time is short and the game is on the line this season. Griffin figures to be a go-to guy, but will he be the only go-to guy game after game, night after night? If not Griffin, then Gallinari, Beverley, Williams or Rivers could be options.WILL THE CLIPPERS BUY INTO WHAT DOC RIVERS IS SELLING?Clippers owner Steve Ballmer made a bold offseason move by limiting Rivers’ duties strictly to coaching for this season, which many league observers took to mean that it’ll be far easier to fire Rivers if things don’t go well in 2017-18. So, it seems imperative for Rivers to get the Clippers to buy into his vision for the team from the opening day of training camp. The one thing all great teams have in common is an ability to band together to win, putting aside egos and personality conflicts. Can the Clippers pull in the same direction?HAS THE WINDOW CLOSED ON THE CLIPPERS’ TITLE HOPES?Or more to the point, are the Clippers facing an inevitable decline after five consecutive 50-win seasons? It’s easy to forget that the Clippers had their (long)shots at their first NBA championship before the Golden State Warriors emerged as the league’s newest super team, winning two titles in three seasons and setting a record with 73 regular-season victories in 2015-16. Maybe the better question for the Clippers this season is to ask whether they can simply maintain their status after so much change during the offseason. It won’t be easy.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The new-look Clippers open training camp Tuesday at the University of Hawaii with a great many questions to be answered after an exceptionally busy offseason, and with an equal number of reasons to wonder what’s next for a franchise that appears to have reached its peak.There are new faces on the court and in the executive suite. There also are new roles for players, coaches and management. Is so much change so quickly healthy for the Clippers? Buckle up, because it’s going to be an entertaining ride in 2017-18.These and other questions will be answered in due time.IS THIS BLAKE GRIFFIN’S TEAM NOW THAT CHRIS PAUL IS A HOUSTON ROCKET?The Clippers didn’t (read: couldn’t) keep Paul during the offseason, so they traded the All-Star point guard to the Rockets for a package of players that included Patrick Beverley, a dramatic move that overhauled their roster for the coming season(s). Then they re-signed Griffin for five seasons and $173 million, which more or less makes him the first Clipper for Life in the franchise’s lackluster history. Then they signed Milos Teodosic, a dynamic Serb who was renowned as the best player not playing in the NBA, in order to pump new life into Lob City. Clippers training camp roster
