Odion Ighalo has big future at Watford, says boss Quique Sanchez Flores

first_img Press Association The Nigerian striker’s incredible form in the Championship last season, when he scored 20 goals in 38 appearances, prompted big-money interest from Hebei China Fortune. But Ighalo opted instead to sign a new five-year contract with the newly promoted Hornets. And the 26-year-old has transferred that form to the Barclays Premier League, with his double in the 2-0 win over West Ham on Saturday taking his tally to seven goals so far this term. Hornets boss Quique Sanchez Flores said: ” Ighalo took a very important decision to stay at Watford. It was a brilliant idea. “He is a wonderful man who stayed here because his future here at Watford is really big. He is already an important player for us.” Ighalo opened the scoring shortly before half-time when he got a toe onto Nathan Ake’s cross, although the ball was helped on its way by Hammers defender Aaron Cresswell. But if there was any doubt over that goal, there was none about the second after the break when he controlled Ikechi Anya’s ball into the area and crashed his shot high into the West Ham net. A second win on the bounce lifted Watford up to ninth in the table, and Ighalo is more than happy with their progress. “We know (West Ham) are a very good team but we stuck to our game-plan and what the gaffer told us to do, and it really worked,” he told Hornets PlayerHD. “We really pushed ourselves and we took the chances that came, so we are very happy about the game. Odion Ighalo turned down a lucrative move to China in the summer – and his decision is paying dividends for Watford. “I’m happy about my goals, but I’m most pleased about the team performance. We played very well and we deserved the win and the three points. “We’ve been performing great this season and we’ve been working hard together. “The team have been pushing. We run for each other, we fight for each other, and it’s been great.” The Hammers looked a shadow of the side who have beaten Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea this season, and manager Slaven Bilic is demanding an immediate response against Everton next Saturday. “That is what we have to do,” he said. “Nobody likes to be beaten, and not like this. We gave them a hand and they took the opportunity. “We paid the price, but let’s be sure we can work as hard as them to win a Premier League game.” last_img read more

Destiny finally introduces microtransactions with the Eververse Trading

first_imgWell, it finally happened. One of Destiny players’ worst fears — whether rational or not — has come true. Starting Tuesday, October 13, Bungie will introduce the player base to the Eververse Trading Company, Destiny’s newly minted in-game cash shop.A couple of weeks before Destiny’s new great expansion The Taken King released, a fan-favorite though admittedly nearly useless NPC, Tess Everis (played by beloved voice actress Claudia Black), was removed from the Tower, the main social hub of the game. Around that time, players uncovered a Bungie trademark for something called “Eververse,” which, considering the sound of the name, players linked to Tess and her disappearance. Earlier today, Bungie released a news update outlining Tess’ triumphant return to the Tower, and that she’ll be bringing the game’s new cash shop with her.The Eververse Trading Company logo revealed in Bungie’s news update.For starters, Tess will offer 18 new emotes for players to purchase using yet another currency being added to Destiny’s already convoluted economy: Silver. As Destiny players know, emotes are fluff and — despite one objective in a secret patrol mission (which can use the free emotes that come with the game) — aren’t needed for anything in the game.The emotes are similar to the collector items players could purchase alongside The Taken King, which included an exclusive class item and a new dance emote. Bungie made these collector items available in a separate $20 set for players that didn’t want to purchase the full collector’s edition. The community was split on the pack — each item averaged out to about $2, and the class items don’t scale with player level, so they (more or less) become useless once you climb beyond their level. It seems, though, that the trial run of the $20 pack was enough to go forward with the new Eververse cash shop. In all fairness to Bungie, emotes are indeed just cosmetic items that have no effect on the game besides what disrespectful dance you perform atop the corpses of your enemies.Bungie has yet to detail the new pricing structure of Silver, and we’ll also need to wait and see what else the developer has in store for the Eververse Trading Company. Players will get some free Silver when the update goes live, likely in an effort to appease the cash shop doomsayers and preemptively lessen the severity of the incoming community storm. So, it looks like we all have something new to look forward with next Tuesday’s weekly reset: some new dances to soothe our pain when Oryx drops nothing but a couple of Moldering Shards and some Wormspore.last_img read more

Polestar 2 In The Lens Of Fully Charged Autogefühl Videos

first_imgPolestar 2 – the all-electric car from the northThe Polestar 2 was one of the EV stars at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and here we would like to encourage you to see two presentations of the car, by known and liked Fully Charged and Autogefühl.According to Fully Charged’s Jonny Smith the first all-electric Polestar was one of the most besieged cars on the stage. Sadly, the 2 appears to be on the higher-end of what most EV enthusiasts can afford (€59,900 in 2020 and €39,900 for the base model in the future.) Moreover, the following Polestar models are to be above the Polestar 2 (in terms of size/performance/price). But you know what? We bet that there will be Volvo BEVs with similar tech and lower prices too (just less sporty and exclusive).Polestar 2 UPDATE: How Polestar 2 Compares With Tesla Model 3 Polestar 2 specs:78 kWh battery (324 pouch cells, 27 modules, liquid cooled)target 500 km (311 miles) of WLTP rangeexpected 275 miles (442 km) of EPA range0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 secondsdual motor all-wheel drivesystem output: 300 kW (408 hp) and 660 Nm of torque (two 150 kW and 330 Nm electric motors per axle)150 kW fast charging capabilitybased on Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform* in China battery capacity to be 72 kWhAutogefühl.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }Bonus: Demo of Google Android user interface.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Source: Electric Vehicle News Polestar EVs Have A Center Raised-Floor Tunnel + Other Fun Facts Let’s Take A Closer Look At Polestar 2 Battery Details Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on March 29, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
