Mentally prepared To get the better of Portmore United, a team he described as tough, tactical opponents with a deep squad, Gayle will look to the likes of former national player Keammar “Dada” Daley who, on his day, is one of the better midfielders in the country, captain Rochane Smith, Girvon and Patrick Brown, as well as Davion Garrison. Portmore United, according to Coach Dixon, are difficult to pick. “Everyone is available. It is just to get the right team. It is difficult to get the right 11 when you have 25 to 30 players to choose from and everyone wants a chance” Dixon said. Whatever the 11, goalkeeper Shaven Sean Paul should feature as should Damono Solomon, Ricardo Morris, captain Ewan Grandison, in-form goalscorers Jovan East and Malique Foster. Today’s game: 3 p.m: Portmore United vs UWI FC – Wembley Centre of Excellence. The first semi-final of the 2017 Red Stripe Premier League is on today at the Wembley Centre of Excellence in Clarendon. Today’s opponents, Portmore United and UWI FC, each set themselves the goal of going one better than they did last year. That situation puts more pressure on Portmore United, who are home away from home, as, despite the fact that their name suggests that they are domiciled in St. Catherine, they are a Clarendon team. “The players are eager to go. They understand the importance of the first leg and are really focused on getting a positive result. “Our plan for the season is to go one better this year because we lost in the final last year,” Portmore United coach Linval Dixon told The Sunday Gleaner. While that means they have to get past today’s opponents, Dixon knows that the result is not automatic. “We are not looking past UWI because the game has to be played on the field. Nothing is owed to us. We have to play for the result we want,” Dixon added. Second-year team UWI FC have already done better than they did last season, but Coach Marcel Gayle and his players are not satisfied. “We missed the semi-finals last year by a point to Humble Lion and decided that this year, we have to take it a step further and this being our second year in the League, it is our first time in the semi-finals, so we are little bit new to it and have to be mentally prepared,” said Gayle, who was an assistant before leading the club to the promised land after being promoted to head coach. Things could have gone even better for Gayle and his players as they could have topped the league on points and collected the $1m bonus. They, however, lost some crucial points on the home stretch and were bettered by that team again – Humble Lion. “Yes, we lost some points at a crucial stage, yes, but we had two choices – going for the bonus or the big one. We would have wanted to get the million, but we don’t necessarily have the numbers like other people, and going after the million could have cost us as we had injuries. We decided to ensure that they heal and go for the big prize,” Gayle explained. Tactical opponents

He has rushed for 335 yards and a 3.6 average this season with three touchdowns. The loss of McAllister would strike another blow in the Saints’ season. He signed a seven-year contract extension during the offseason that makes him one of the NFL’s highest-paid players. He is due to get $6 million this season. The Saints lost their home stadium when Hurricane Katrina damaged the Superdome in Louisiana. That forced the Saints to move their headquarters to San Antonio and some of their home games to the Alamodome. On Sunday, the Saints suffered their second-worst loss in team history. The 52-3 defeat at Green Bay is surpassed only by the 62-7 loss during the 1973 season against Atlanta in Tulane Stadium in New Orleans. “If that’s the case, a torn ligament, he’s out for the year,” Haslett said. “I feel bad first of all for Deuce. He’s worked hard to get to this point. He’s a great football player.” McAllister became the leading career rusher for the Saints earlier this season. He’s had three straight 1,000-yard rushing seasons plus three straight seasons with 30 or more receptions coming out of the backfield. “I have a lot of confidence in our team,” Haslett said. “We’ve overcome a lot in the past year and the last couple of months. “The loss against Green Bay was enough for a lifetime. Anytime you lose a player like Deuce, you have to have him surrounded by people who can pick up their game. Everybody has to play better.” Running back Najeh Davenport underwent season-ending surgery to repair his broken right ankle on Monday and the Green Bay Packers placed him on injured reserve. The Packers, who are off this weekend, probably won’t replace him on the roster until next week. “We’re going through our options, and we don’t feel compelled to fill the spot right away,” general manager Ted Thompson said. Thompson, who signed free agent running back ReShard Lee last week, said he wouldn’t necessarily sign another running back, either. The Miami Dolphins made a substantial offensive upgrade Monday, adding a certified yoga instructor and student of holistic medicine notorious for his shyness and mercurial behavior. Yes, Ricky Williams is back. Returning from a four-week suspension that followed a one-year retirement, Williams took part in the team’s brief walkthrough session. He’ll rejoin practice Wednesday and likely play Sunday at Tampa Bay –his first game since December 2003. Browns rookie receiver Braylon Edwards remained in a hospital Monday, recovering from surgery to eradicate an infection in his right arm that kept Edwards out of a 20-10 win over Chicago and could sideline him longer. The team was awaiting lab results to determine the nature of Edwards’ infection, which caused abnormal swelling near his elbow and prompted a team doctor to perform surgery Saturday. “I know the doctor was satisfied about the surgery he performed to clean out that infection,” Browns coach Romeo Crennel said. “After he looks at it, he was hoping it would show good progress and that he would be able to give us some kind of timetable as far as when Braylon may or may not be back.” For the first time in his career, linebacker LaVar Arrington didn’t play a snap while healthy. Coach Joe Gibbs said the defense didn’t use many reserves in a 21-19 loss because it was concerned about containing Denver’s tricky bootlegs. “We want LaVar to play,” Gibbs said. “This is just one of those games where we didn’t do a lot of substitutions.” Kelly Holcomb, who quarterbacked Buffalo to victory over Miami, could return to the bench next week. So says coach Mike Mularkey. “I’m going to leave it as it is,” Mularkey said, adding he believes the lack of an announcement will keep the Jets guessing heading to Sunday’s game. “We think it is an advantage as a team, when you have two different types of quarterbacks, to play it out as long as we can,” Mularkey said. “I think it’s an advantage regardless of what other people think.” Mularkey believes it may have worked to some degree in Buffalo’s 20-14 win over Miami on Sunday. Although word had filtered out that the Bills were switching from J.P. Losman to the veteran Holcomb, Mularkey refused to say who was starting right until gametime. Defensive back R.W. McQuarters could be switched to offense to help the Lions’ injury and suspension-depleted receivers corps. With Charles Rogers suspended and four wide receivers sustaining injuries in Sunday’s 35-17 victory over the Ravens, Detroit’s nickel back volunteered to fill in. “He said during the game that he’d go in, and he just grabbed me in the hall and said he was still ready,” Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Monday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN ANTONIO — Deuce McAllister likely will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Sunday at Green Bay. Saints coach Jim Haslett said Monday that the running back got a second opinion Monday in San Antonio. He’ll get a third opinion from Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., later this week.

Nice few items although not sure what some of them. Nice few items although not sure what some of them are or how to use them as there was no instuctions or pictures on the pack. Styling tool – but unless you’re really clever it’s best if someone else does it for you. Found this a nifty hair styling tool – but unless you’re really clever it’s best if someone else does it for you. Also need long hair, not longish. Good item , good delivery,instructions not v clear. I’ve watched videos of how to do this, but to do it properly, you have to be experienced or have someone do it for you. I’m still talking my boyfriend into braiding my hair with this, not sure that he’s that interested though. Not sure what to say, i want to like it and use it but the face that there are no usable instructions is a nuisance, i guess i will have to google it. Also not sure of how easy it will be to do this on myself, think you need to see what you are doing and i don’t have eyes on the back of my head. Fashion french hair braiding tool roller. Great kit really simple to use. She has gone to school every day with waves in her hain. It would be a lovely product however i can’t get my fingers to use it. Its a lot harder than it looks on videos. The instructions arent very good. They could explain better how to use it. The instructions arent very good. They could explain better how to use it but delivery was exerlent. A bit difficult to master but once done really easy to use – find it easier to do while. Find the first bit a bit difficult to master but once done really easy to use – find it easier to do while my daughters hair is wet – lasted the day at school inc pe. For the price don’t see why people are moaning. The product is one piece of plastic, comes without instructions so you have to google it and watch youtube videos if you want to have any chance of being able to do it yourself. Not as easy as i though, although for £1 i guess you get what you pay for. A little difficult needs practice, made well. Tried this in my granddaughters hair it’s a bit fidderly it’s best to clip in before you start then take the clip out once completed, just takes practice. Bought for granddaughter and so far not heard anything. Don’t think could be done by yourself. Wonderful product or service superb consumer. I didn’t get the primary purchase but cherry from wide fashion was so handy and sorted the dilemma out. Good solution wonderful buyer company.Individually i couldn’t get the gang of how to use it on myself – perhaps greater when working with on another person else.Seems to be uncomplicated enough to use but i havent found it. Purchased as a gift, if i had lengthy hair i would have stored it,seems to be effortless ample to use but i havent noticed it tried.Appears effortless but only if you are utilized to these i. My spouse likes this,but is nonetheless seeking to function out how to use it,asked me to give it a test,but gave up at 3rd endeavor,looks easy but only if you are made use of to these i suppose,still advocate it for price by itself. The instructions that are printed are really fuzzy, tiny pictures; but straight forward tutorials are available through youtube. You basically overlap the hair over the tool and tuck into place. The tool stays in place and is comfortable to wear. Please note, this white coloured tool is best used on light coloured hair as it can be seen in parts through the hair as the day progresses. There are dark coloured tools also available through amazon. This is best used on long hair (past the shoulders) as the tools is made of a thick plastic and cannot easily be cut to length. French braid is now a doddle. Top tip, do it when your hair is wet it’s easier. Great price and great product. Instructions were not very good so i had to use you tube to find out how to use it. Product itself is fantastic. Really quite hard to use and for me more of a gimmick i don’t think i would use this again but that is because i am using it on myself if i were to be using it someone else it may be a different story i find it hard to use alone. a bit difficult to master but once done really easy to use – find it easier to do while Fashion French Hair Braiding Tool RollerLove the productGood item, good deliveryFrench braid is now a doddleGreat product fantastic customerFashion French Hair Braiding Tool Roller With Magic hair Twist Styling Bun MakerHow to use: The hair on the hair braider, and take a strand of hair into the side in the S-type, and so on, while aboutQuick look at the end of a fixed time or find something about the disc cover hair tail on it
