‘Troublemaker’ Chaniolo makes EPL debut after half a decade at Turkique… Aston Villa loan move on the cards

Nicolo Chaniolo, the former Italy national team and AS Roma star striker who left the club for Turkkiye after a series of feuds and controversies, is set to join Aston Villa.

On Aug. 15 (KST), several local media outlets, including Sport Italia, reported that Chaniolo will be loaned to English Premier League (EPL) 토토사이트 club Aston Villa from his current club Galatasaray. It is a one-year loan move with a buyout clause, and Galatasaray will receive a total of €27 million in the event of a full transfer. Both the club and the player have already agreed, so barring any unforeseen problems with medicals and paperwork, he will be a Villa player.

Chaniolo was originally undervalued by Inter Milan, who sold him to AS Roma after just one year. He arrived in a Roma shirt in 2018 as part of the fee for Radja Nainggolan, but soon broke into the first team and exploded onto the scene. He had a combination of strength, pace, penetrating runs, and a sharp left-footed shot that we haven’t seen from Italian strikers in recent years.

However, he has been hampered by injuries and poor form, which has been bad luck so far, but last season was marked by attitude controversy. After being linked to Tottenham Hotspur several times, Chaniolo finally announced his departure from Roma in January of this year. Roma tried to sell him to Bournemouth in England, who were the highest bidder, but he refused. After the Western European transfer market closed, he left for Galatasaray through the Turkkiye transfer market, which remained open until February. Mourinho, who had been eyeing Chaniolo for some time, also dropped him.

After scoring five goals in 10 games in half a season with Galatasaray, Chaniolo was looking for a return to the big leagues in much better form, and Villa were keen to snap him up. Villa’s meteoric rise under Unai Emery in the second half of last season saw them climb out of the relegation zone and qualify for the UEFA Europa Conference. This summer, the club brought in instant quality in the form of center back Pau Torres, midfielder Yuri Tillemans, and winger Moussa Diaby, and they haven’t lost any of their key resources.

The addition of Chaniolo to a Villa attacking lineup that already featured Ollie Watkins, Leon Bailey, and Imiliano Buendia will add to their ability to dribble and counter-attack. That’s assuming he adapts well to Emery’s strict tactics.

“Dodgers shock, steal Jang Hyun-seok for $1 million less” 19-year-old, 156 kilometers…meet Choi Hyun-il

“What’s even more shocking is that the Dodgers signed him for less than $1 million ($900,000).”

The top amateur prospect in 2023 먹튀검증, Jang Hyun-seok, 19, ultimately chose the major leagues. Contrary to expectations that he would be signed in early 2024, when the salary cap for international amateur scouts resets for Major League Baseball teams, he signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers early.

The signing bonus is $900,000. That’s a bit more than Jun-seok Shim (Pittsburgh Pirates, $750,000), who was called up to the minors this year. It’s a shilling for a player that teams are looking for. Jang will start his minor league career next year. On July 14, he had his induction ceremony in Seoul.

Sports Illustrated’s Dodger Fan Nation, Inside the Dodgers, said on Nov. 15 (KST), “The Dodgers have a history of producing some incredible Korean talent in the past.” Besides Park Chan-ho and Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays), the Dodgers are the team with the most Korean major leaguers.

Inside the Dodgers pointed out that the Dodgers are looking to develop Jang Hyun-seok into the next Chan Ho Park and Ryu Hyun-jin. “It’s rare to find a 19-year-old who can already hit 97 mph with his fastball. He was considered the No. 1 pick in the KBO draft (held in mid-September), but he decided to sign with the Dodgers.”

Inside the Dodgers even wrote, “Even more shocking is that the Dodgers signed Jang for less than $1 million. His high school junior year stats certainly surprise people. In 27 1/3 innings, he struck out 49 batters and had a 0.33 ERA. I think the Dodgers stole him.”

The question now is at what level Jang will start next year. The Dodgers currently have right-hander Hyun-il Choi (23) in High Single-A. Choi had some injury issues last year, but this season he appeared in 11 games (nine starts) for the Great Lakes Loons, going 2-3 with a 3.13 ERA in 37⅓ innings pitched.

Inside the Dodgers writes, “If the Dodgers are going to pair Jang with Hyun-seok Choi, it will likely start in High Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, High Single-A Great Lakes or Double-A Tulsa. For a pitcher who can throw 97 mph, it doesn’t seem impossible.” The expectation is that Jang and Choi will be able to work out together and provide good-natured competition.

Information Geun 5 runs ‘life game’, there was a reason to delay Yoo Kang-nam’s return!…Lotte wins 10-6 reverse against SSG.

Lotte Giants continue their momentum with a two-run comeback win over Tuta Harmony. Lee Jung-geun had the game of his life.

Lotte came from behind to win 10-5 against SSG Landers in the regular season of the Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League 2023 at Sajik Stadium 꽁머니지급 in Busan on Friday. With the win, Lotte extended its winning streak to two games and improved to 48 wins and 51 losses on the season. SSG had its two-game winning streak snapped, falling to 55-42-1.

Park Se-woong pitched a quality start, allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and three strikeouts in six innings to snap a personal five-game losing streak. At the plate, Lee Jung-geun paced the offense, going 4-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, two walks, and a career-high five runs batted in. Noh Jin-hyuk also contributed with five hits, three doubles and three RBIs.

For SSG, starter Elias struggled, giving up three runs on seven hits (one home run) in four innings, and the bullpen followed suit. In particular, closer Go Hyo-joon gave up five runs in ⅓ of an inning and completely lost the game.

SSG lined up with Choo Shin-soo (right fielder), Choi Ji-hoon (center fielder), Choi Joo-hwan (first baseman), Choi Jung (third baseman), Park Sung-sung (shortstop), Kim Kang-min (designated hitter), Han Yu-seom (left fielder), Kim Min-sik (catcher), and Kim Sung-hyun (second baseman). The starting pitcher was Roenis Elias. However, in the bottom of the first inning, Han Yoo-seom, who started in the No. 7 left field spot, was removed from the lineup. An SSG representative said, “He had a fever before the start of the game and was replaced by Ha Jae-hoon. We will make a decision on medical treatment after seeing the fever drop.”

Lotte’s starting lineup consisted of Yoon Dong-hee (right fielder), Ahn Chi-hong (second baseman), Jeong Hoon (first baseman), Jeon Jun-woo (designated hitter), Lee Jung-hoon (left fielder), Gudrum (third baseman), Shin Jung-geun (catcher), Noh Jin-hyuk (shortstop), and Kim Min-seok (center fielder). It is noteworthy that Lee Jung-geun, who has been hitting well lately, is batting seventh.

SSG’s surprise bunt by former major leaguer breaks perfect game in the third inning

The SSG batting lineup was thoroughly stymied by Lotte starter Park Se-woong until the third inning. They were unable to do much until the top of the third inning. In particular, in the first inning, Shin-soo Choo and Joo-hwan Choi’s balls to left-center field were picked off by center fielder Kim Min-seok. They were facing a perfect game.

However, the tense balance was shattered by a surprise hit. In the top of the fourth inning, Choo Shin-soo hit a surprise bunt between the pitcher and first baseman. It was his first hit of the game, and it opened the floodgates.

Choi Ji-hoon popped out to center field, but Choi Ju-hwan hit a double down the left field line. On the Lotte replay, Ahn Chi-hong spilled the ball and scored. First baseman Choo Shin-soo was stopped at third base but managed to score. Choi Jung-jeong followed with a single to left and Park Sung-sung walked to load the bases. Luck was on their side. Kim Kang-min hit a grounder to the shortstop. Byungsal Tae-seong was on course. This time, however, shortstop Noh Jin-hyuk caught the ball and didn’t make a quick enough throw to second base. It was a double play, and the runner from third came home to make it 2-0.

LOTTE comes right back with a bang, thanks to ‘Bomb No. 7’ Yang Ji Hyun-jin

Lotte answered right back in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Giants, who had missed opportunities such as runners on first and second with no outs in the first inning, scored immediately after the error. Jeon Jun-woo, who had a single in the first inning, led off the fourth with a solo shot to left. He took advantage of a 145-kilometer fastball from SSG starter Roenis Elias. His 11th home run of the season. It was 1-2.

Lee struck out, but Goodrum hit a single to right-center field. He then overthrew between the first and second bases, but took advantage of the opponent’s throw to first base and stole second. Lee then hit an RBI single to right-center field to tie the game at 2-2. The momentum continued for Lee, who is batting 5-for-13 with seven home runs, eight RBIs and two runs scored in the previous four games. After a leadoff double by Noh Jin-hyuk and a walk by Kim Min-seok, Yoon Dong-hee’s sacrifice fly to right field scored one more run to make it 3-2.

The momentum continued in the fifth inning. Lotte had runners on first and second with no outs in the bottom of the fifth after Jung Hoon singled and Jeon Jun-woo walked, but Lee Jung-hoon’s sacrifice bunt attempt failed and the runner was caught at third. With runners on first and second, Gudrum flied out to center field to put runners on second and third. But Jung was waiting. He smashed an RBI single to left field to make it 4-2. He completed a three-hit game, including a double in the second inning.

Park Se-woong bounces back to end five-game losing streak, Choi Jun-yong falters, Shim Jae-min stumbles

Park had lost five straight games and had a 7.40 ERA (20 earned runs in 24⅓ innings). He needed a reversal. He was desperate to end the losing streak. After pitching perfectly through three innings, he was shaken by a surprise bunt hit by Shin-Soo Choo in the fourth inning and gave up two runs with no help from his defense. However, he retired the side in order in both the fifth and sixth innings. He pitched a quality start, allowing two runs on four hits with two walks and three strikeouts in six innings.

But in the seventh inning, after Park went down, Lotte was in trouble. Choi Jun-yong gave up a leadoff single to Ha Jae-hoon and struck out pinch-hitter Choi Jun-woo, but Kim Sung-hyun’s bunt was misplayed by third baseman Gudrum, putting runners on first and second. The pitcher was replaced by Shim Jae-min. Shim gave up a single to left field to the first batter, Shin-Soo Choo. It was 4-3. Left fielder Ahn Kwon-soo made a poor defense. There were runners on first and second. However, Shim Jae-min got Choi Ji-hoon to fly out to shortstop and Choi Joo-hwan to ground out to second base to end the threat. The threat of a comeback was averted.

Chance after crisis, four-run big inning after Shim Jae-min’s save

He capitalized on a late-inning opportunity. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Gudrum singled to shortstop and Lee walked to put runners on first and second with one out, and Noh singled to right to make it 5-3. In the bottom of the inning, Kim Min-seok doubled to right field to score a run, and in the bottom of the inning, Yoon Dong-hee singled to right field and Ahn Chi-hong singled to center field to make it 8-3.

SSG got two runs back in the top of the eighth on Park Sung-ho’s two-run double, but Noh Jin-hyuk’s RBI single in the bottom of the inning sealed the deal.

Messi successor says he wants to stay…Barça ‘solicited’ over 72.8 billion in offers

The future of Ansu Fati, who was considered the successor of Lionel Messi, has become uncertain.

The Spanish media ‘안전놀이터‘ reported on the 14th (Korean time) that “Barcelona is seriously considering selling him despite Partey’s will to remain.”

Partey has been evaluated as a player who will lead the future of Barcelona in the future. Coming from his Barcelona youth team, he scored 8 goals in his 19/20 season, which was his first-team debut season, and was also considered his greatest talent of all time.

He was also hailed as Messi’s successor. In 2021, right after Lionel Messi left, the party inherited number 10, raising expectations as a player who will lead the new era.

It was an injury that held the party back. Partey has not been able to get back on his feet since suffering a meniscus injury last season 20/21. His growth also slowed noticeably.

Even last season, it was difficult to find any signs of his revival. Rather, he spent more time on the bench rather than starting. He made 36 appearances in the league, but scored only 7 goals.

The future at Barcelona is uncertain. Barcelona are struggling financially, so they considered selling the party to collect the proceeds from the transfer fee.

He even showed up to a team that said he would recruit the party. According to this report, an unnamed English Premier League club offered Barcelona a transfer fee of over 50 million euros (approximately 72.8 billion won) for Partey’s signing.

Barcelona are in trouble. The media opened up the possibility of the party’s transfer, saying, “If Barcelona is the amount proposed, the club can secure leeway in terms of the total salary and funds for recruiting new players.”

It seems that the party’s sale is putting weight on it. The future of the party has become more uncertain due to the lack of serious transfer proposals for Rafinha and Ferran Torres, which were initially considered for sale.

The variable is the will of the parties. Despite not being able to guarantee playing time this season, it is said that Partey wants to remain at Barcelona and prove his worth once again.

A special Jeju victory photo…a Jeju forest that grew with the fans

Jeju United put an end to their 10-game winless streak (4 draws, 6 losses) and kept their promise to the fans.

Jeju prepared a special ceremony for 먹튀검증 their 3 home matches in August. It was planned to showcase the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony, which contains the will to practice environmental protection and the meaning of preserving the beauty of clean Jeju, in line with the recent release of the eco-friendly regenerated uniform ‘Jeju Forest’ and the players wearing it. In the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony, each person expresses the trunk of a tree with both arms and the branch with both hands, and these are gathered to create a dense forest in Jeju.

But things weren’t going well. In the match against Gangwon FC on the 6th (1-1 draw), Hayes scored a penalty kick at the end of the game, but time did not wait for Jeju any longer. The FA Cup semi-final against Pohang Steelers on the 9th was canceled due to Typhoon Kanun, the 6th. 

On the 12th, they scored 3 goals in a head-to-head match against Suwon FC (3-0), but due to the high concentration of the players who had the chance to escape from a 10-game undefeated match, they could not show the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony during the game. However, the regret of the moment returned to the echo of greater emotion. 

In the process of taking a victory picture in the N seat after the game, coach Nam Ki-il suggested that all fans and the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony be held together, and many Jeju forests grew in the victory picture that day. The players and fans put their hands together to make a tree.

Coach Nam Ki-il said, “I wanted to show the ‘Jeju Forest’ ceremony in the game, but it seems that the players’ desire and concentration to break the undefeated were greater. However, you must keep your promise. He suggested that we take a victory picture while holding a ceremony. It was a more meaningful moment because the fans were able to participate. Thank you very much.”

LG removes Jeong Woo-young from first-team roster, citing ‘declining physical condition’

Jeong Woo-young, who has been a stalwart on the mound for the LG Twins, was removed from the first team roster on Thursday. The club explained that the move was due to a “decline in physical condition.”

Jung has been one of the “must-win” 메이저사이트 pitchers for LG this season and has been a key part of the team’s run to the top of the standings. Through the first 13 days of the season, he has appeared in 50 games, pitching 42.2 innings with a 4-4 record and a 4.43 ERA.

However, his last 10 starts have been less than stellar. He has two shutout wins in that span, but in 7.2 innings of work, he has allowed seven runs (five earned) on 14 hits, five walks and three hit batsmen while striking out six, raising his ERA to 5.87.

Jeong will now pitch for the Futures (second team). LG is fresh off a five-game winning streak after sweeping a three-game home series against the Kiwoom Heroes at Jamsil Stadium last weekend.

They remain in first place with 61 points (2 wins, 2 draws, 35 losses) and have six games in hand on second-place SSG Landers (55 points, 1 draw, 41 losses). The team will play a three-game midweek series against the Samsung Lions at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu from April 15-17, before traveling to SSG Landers Field in Incheon for a three-game weekend series against SSG from April 18-20.

‘It’s the same, it’s the same~’…A son who copied his EPL legend father’s hairstyle 22 years ago→When will your soccer skills follow suit?

Britain’s The Sun reported on the 13th 메이저사이트 that ‘Romeo Beckham emulated the image of his legendary dad, David, by sporting a bold new hairstyle at Brentford training ahead of the new season.’

Romeo Beckham sported a bold new hairstyle ahead of the start of the new Premier League season. It is said that it is to inherit his father’s spirit with the hairstyle his father used to do.

Romeo copied his father’s ‘buzz cut’ in 2001, in which he cut his hair short, dyed it brown, and left it in long strands. Romeo revealed this hairstyle to fans while training for his team.

Romeo wrote, “Please help him get his dad’s buzz back,” to which David, the father, immediately commented, “Looks good.” I can feel the affection of a father to support his son.

The problem is that his soccer skills are still poor compared to his father’s. As a member of the Brentport B team last season, Romeo scored just one goal in 15 appearances. He says that of course he has just started playing football again, so it is great that he has shown that level of skill. Thanks to Romeo, he helped the team lift the League Cup.

Romeo played for Inter Miami, an American Major League Soccer team owned by his father, but went on loan to Brentford without much success.

However, he has now completely transferred and is challenging the EPL. He also recently modeled for Brentford’s kit launch. It gave him hope that he could play in the EPL for the second generation following his father.

On the other hand, David Beckham’s father also had a rich hairstyle when he was a player. He really did look like a fashionista, changing his hairstyle every year. The hairstyles Beckham showed off as a player were really diverse, including shaved hair, ponytails, cornrows, a kind of reggae hair, and buzz cuts.

But Beckham also has a hairstyle that he regrets. It was cornrow style. This is the hairstyle she wore before meeting Nelson Mandela. It was in 2003 when he was a member of the England national team ahead of a friendly match against South Africa in Durban, South Africa. Beckham boldly wore cornrow hair, a black reggae hair.

The traditional hairstyle that Africans braid close to the scalp is the ‘cornrow style’, but Beckham, who did not know what it was, left it to the hair designer. He met Mandela in a suit, but Beckham said he was embarrassed because his hairstyle didn’t suit him.

FIFA President also visits Women’s World Cup fan festival: “I’m happy the world is united”

 FIFA president Gianni Infantino visited the 먹튀검증 fan festival in Sydney, Australia. He watched the quarterfinal match between hosts Australia and France with fans.

Since the opening of the 2023 FIFA Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup on the 20th of last month (Korean time), the Fan Festival has become a sacred place for the representative fans of this World Cup, with 500,000 fans visiting. This is the first time that a fan festival has been held at the Women’s World Cup.

“It is an honor to be here at the FIFA Fan Festival in Sydney,” said Infantino. The atmosphere is so beautiful and I’m happy to see all the fans enjoying this tournament, the greatest Women’s World Cup ever.” “It’s great to see the fans enjoying the football festival and seeing the beautiful game bring everyone together. #FootballUnitesTheWorld!” has been proven”, expressing satisfaction.

President Infantino also expressed his gratitude to the event volunteers. He said, “The smile of volunteers is the smile of the World Cup and the smile of the world. Volunteers everywhere, from fan festivals and stadiums to cities and airports, were special. A big thank you,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chairman Infantino is showing a wide range of moves in this World Cup following the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. During the Qatar World Cup, he visited all the stadiums where 64 games were held and showed vigorous activity.

LG’s ‘centerpiece of the centerline’ Shin Min-jae powers LG to 5-game winning streak in air, water, and land

LG Twins coach Yeom Gyeong-yeop’s theory is firm. The center line from catcher to second baseman, shortstop to center field must 메이저놀이터 be strengthened, but he has a strong belief that he can complete a solid power without wavering throughout the season.

The point that director Yeom emphasized is ‘reinforcement’. It’s not just about making up for the lack of power. Coach Yeom’s idea can be completed only when the players in the four positions that make up the center line play a central role in the batting line.

Over the past several seasons, LG has been tired of worrying about the second baseman. Numerous candidates put forward a challenge, but the right person did not appear well. But this season is different. ‘Cinderella’ Shin Min-jae (27) completes director Yeom’s idea.

Shin Min-jae started as the second batter and second baseman in the home game against the Kiwoom Heroes of the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League’ held at Jamsil Stadium on the 13th. On this day, he showed impressive performances in both ball, defense and state, leading the team’s 17-8 victory.

Shin Min-jae got a right-handed hit from his first at bat in the bottom of the first inning. Follow-up hitter Kim Hyeon-soo stole second base with perfect timing when he was at bat, and was immediately in scoring position. He went to base with a heavy hit in the bottom of the second inning, stole second base again, and reported both multi-hits and stolen bases in the early part of the game.

Shin Min-jae, who survived with an infield hit to the shortstop again at the end of the 3rd inning, completed a three-hit game early. LG scored every inning from the 1st to the 4th inning and took a huge lead 13-3 from the beginning, and it was Shin Min-jae who led the team’s attack at the center of the center line.

He showed off his flair in defense as well. In the top of the 6th inning, Shin Min-jae quickly followed Kiwoom’s lead hitter Kim Hye-sung and caught it with his backhand, then made an outcount with a one-beat fast throw. Kim Hye-seong, who boasts the fastest feet in the league, was captured with Hosobi, and the atmosphere of the battery and the beast Jin-ui was raised at once.

The entire LG lineup, including Shin Min-jae, exploded. He devastated the Kiwoom mound with 18 hits. Shin Min-jae recorded 3 hits, 2 RBIs and 2 runs in 6 at-bats. Austin Dean, who started as the fourth hitter and first baseman, hit home runs for two days in a row and hit 3 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 home run, 4 RBIs and 2 runs.

Starting pitcher Lim Chan-gyu took his 9th win (2nd loss) of the season despite pitching 5 runs in 5 innings thanks to ample scoring support. LG (61 wins, 2 draws, 35 losses) ran 5 consecutive wins. He continued his cruising toward winning the regular season by further solidifying his single-leading system.

“An absolute dream player”…signing ‘No.9’ Kane is Bayern’s ‘big break’

“Harry Kane is our absolute dream player.”

That’s how Bayern Munich 안전놀이터 president Jupp Heynckes described Kane. It’s a quote that sums up how badly Bayern wanted to sign the striker.

Bayern finally got their man. “We have signed Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane until June 30, 2027,” the club announced on its official website on Wednesday. “He will wear the number nine shirt. “I am very happy to be a part of Bayern,” Kane said.

Dresden added: “Kane has been our absolute dream player from the start. He fits perfectly into the DNA of the club. A world-class central striker has always been an important factor in Bayern’s great successes, and we are confident that Kane will continue this success story.”

Dresden’s words are true. “You can’t talk about Bayern’s great era without mentioning strikers. Gerd Müller, who led Bayern from the front in the 1970s, is a prime example. Muller scored 566 goals in 607 games, a Bayern record, and helped the team win three consecutive German Bundesliga titles and three consecutive UEFA Champions League (UCL, then European Cup) titles.

More recently, there was Robert Lewandowski. Lewandowski joined the team in the summer of 2014 and is second on Bayern’s all-time scoring list with 344 goals in 375 games. He led Bayern to a European treble in the 2019-2020 season and was named the 2020 Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Player of the Year.

Kane suffered from a striker drought last season. The signing of Sadio Mane, who performed well as a false nine at Liverpool, was a bust. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting saved the day with 10 goals in 19 league games, but was hampered by a series of injuries in the second half. An attempt to use winger Serge Gnabry as a central striker was only half successful. Bayern crashed out of the DFB Pokal and UCL, and barely managed to defend their Bundesliga title.

That’s why they were so eager to sign Kane this summer. Kane is a prolific goalscorer, having scored 280 goals for Tottenham alone. Bayern have a number of players like Jamal Moussaouiallah and Joshua Kimmich who are excellent at providing supportive shooting.

Kane also excels at linking up. Kane was a monster in the 2020-2021 English Premier League (EPL), leading the league in both goals and assists with 23 goals and 14 assists. Bayern’s second line also has plenty of wingers who can score goals, such as Gnabry, Musiala, and Leroy Sane.

Now, the Bavarians are looking to bounce back from last season’s disappointment and recapture that golden era with Kane. Perfect in the number nine role, Kane would be the perfect addition to Bayern’s squad.
