Posted On Dec 22 2019 by

We are doing everything we can.”“There is no time given to this injury,” McGhee added. “They don’t say it ‘will take six weeks or eight weeks’, they actually say ‘it could take six weeks, eight weeks, it could take six months’. That is the nature of it and we just hope it doesn’t take six months obviously.“It is a complicated and nasty condition that he has ended up with.“He is seeing a guy in Dublin actually this week to put his mind at rest.”Motherwell manager says Carl McHugh injury is a ‘real concern’ was last modified: October 16th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Is Wizz Europe’s best low cost carrier?

Posted On Dec 18 2019 by

first_imgFor those that live outside Europe it is unlikely you would have ever heard of low cost carrier Wizz air or W!ZZ as they are more commonly written. Wizz commenced service from its base in Hungary in 2004 and has quickly become a popular airline of choice for travellers wanting low cost travel around Europe and especially the in vogue, Eastern Europe.  Whilst successful, most of the population outside Europe don’t know about Wizz and tend to stick with the more well known Ryan Air and easyJet for low cost air travel.Wizz has built up an impressive  route network in just 10 years serving over 100 destination with a fleet comprising of 52 A320 aircraft with an average fleet age of just four years.Wizz is an ultra low cost carrier meaning everything from water to snacks needs to be purchased on board, or passengers can bring their own (with the exception of hot drinks). Like easyJet and Ryanair, there is no inflight entertainment, no seat recline and no blankets or pillows. The seat pitch is a fairly comfortable 30 inch and much more comfortable than the 28-29 inch pitch offered by some of its competitors.To avoid being slugged with a 20 euro ‘airport check-in’ charge passengers must check-in on the web before their flight. If passengers know they will not be able to web check-in on line and print out a boarding pass, an airport check-in can be pre-purchased for 10 euro at the time of booking.  Web check-in is available 30 days to three hours prior to the flight. Web check-in is not available for flights departing  Dubai, Hurghada, Istanbul, corfu, Palma Dre Mallorca, Turin and Zaragoza.  In these cases there is no fee to check-in at the airport.            See Passenger Reviews for Wizz AirAs with any low cost carrier it pays to pre-purchase your checked baggage. Wizz air charges differing amounts for this based on the time of year you are travelling and the length of the route. There are also strict rules regarding carry-on baggage.  Larger carry-on baggage does need to be pre-purchased, however, small things like a hand bag can be carried on board for free. We strongly suggest you view the rules about baggage sizes and weights here to avoid hefty charges at the airport.When booking an airfare with Wizz it is worth checking what airport you will be arriving at.  Secondary airports, or airports far from the city centre are used by low cost carriers because it is cheaper. It is worth checking out how much it will cost to get from the secondary airport to your accommodation or the city centre as the full service carrier that flies into the main airport could end up being cheaper once you add on these extra transport costs.  Wizz, like easyJet, provide options to book cheap bus transport at the time of booking for a small fee and we strongly suggest you take this option to avoid the high charges that would come with catching a taxi.Of course as with every low cost carrier there are options to make your flight more comfortable and of course, these come at a price.  Using the example of London to Belgrade we looked at these options and the associated costs.WIZZ XXLong legroom seats are those at the front of the aircraft or the emergency exit that offer significantly more legroom and can be pre-purchased at the time of booking.  For the London Belgrade flight this would cost an extra 14 pounds per person.Wizz Xtra Space allows you to purchase the seat next to you so you are guaranteed to have a free seat.  This service can be purchased online, via the call centre, at the airport or onboard and will vary in price.  Wizz extra space also comes with priority boarding.Wizz Reserved Seat, at a cost of seven pounds, is another add on service that guarantees you a seat in the first three rows of the aircraft meaning you can be amongst the first to get on and off the plane.Wizz Xpress Priority Boarding at three pounds, lets you board the plane and pick your seat first (remember seating is not allocated). When travelling by bus to the aircraft you will be in a section at the front of the bus that ensures you are boarded first.Provided you follow the rules and look at the total costs involved in getting from “A to B” Wizz Air may just be your answer to getting around Europe cheaply.  Despite not being well known outside Europe, it is a big airline and definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for some cheap flights.last_img read more

Torrence satisfied with choice to play football

Posted On Sep 28 2019 by

Few can say that they’ve accomplished their lifelong dream as early as college, but Ohio State cornerback Devon Torrence can. “I pretty much always knew I wanted to be here (at OSU),” Torrence said. “I didn’t take any official visits anywhere else, man. This was the only school I wanted to go to. I waited on a scholarship here. It was just a dream come true.” Torrence and his fellow senior teammates are looking to cap their college football careers by winning the National Championship. Anything less for this talented team filled with experience would be a letdown, for players and OSU fans alike. The Canton, Ohio, native grew up wanting to become a Buckeye and now he’s on the “Silver Bullet” defensive unit, which is largely considered one of the best in the country. As a freshman, Torrence was on the team when the Buckeyes lost to Louisiana State in the 2008 National Title game at the Superdome. Losing the game was tough, Torrence said, but it helped build the bond between him and his fellow seniors. “When you get a team that’s like that, that’s lost some and had some success, it creates that perfect gel of that team that’s hungry and just wants to get out there and win and fight for each other every snap,” he said. Senior linebacker Brian Rolle talked about the importance of having a good relationship with teammates and what Torrence means to the Buckeyes’ defense. “Me and Devon, it’s like big brother, little brother sometimes,” Rolle said. “We’re always picking on each other and talking trash to each other. We talk trash just knowing we want each other to get better. We study each other all the time. Me and him, it’s a great relationship.” Chimdi Chekwa plays cornerback opposite of Torrence and has helped improve his game. Torrence said their relationship also hits on the brotherhood theme. “Chim is just like a big brother,” Torrence said. “He helps me out with little things that can help with my game. He’s really smart and pays attention to a lot of detail. I consider myself a very raw athlete at the position. He’s a lot more seasoned than I am, I would say, with some stuff. A lot of times I rely on my athleticism to get me through. But he’ll break something down and give me a different perspective and put me into position to make a lot more plays.” After losing the National Championship game in New Orleans, OSU suffered a heart-breaking, last-second loss to Texas in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl, which marked the program’s third-consecutive postseason defeat. Last season, in the starting lineup for the first time, Torrence and the Buckeyes came back to win the Rose Bowl — a memory forever ingrained in his mind, and his favorite since becoming a Buckeye. “People say that we were young that year. It was my first year out there (starting),” he said. “We had a great time out in California and it’s something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life — just winning that game out there and having a blast.” Rolle, known for playing with “swagger,” said that Torrence has plenty of his own and he’s always pressing his teammates to improve. “Playing with him is great because Devon, he’s a guy, I would say, probably has more swagger than I do,” Rolle said. “He’s always like ‘let’s go man, we got to get better today.’ We went through walk-throughs today and he came up to me and said, ‘You gonna get better today?’ He’s always pushing himself and always pushing others to get better.” Football wasn’t Torrence’s only passion. He was drafted in the 16th round of Major League Baseball’s amateur entry by the Houston Astros and played two summers of rookie ball for the Greeneville Astros in Tennessee. He didn’t quite have the same success as an outfielder as he did with a helmet and shoulder pads. The athletic speedster hit .149 and .151 in 64 games over two seasons for Greeneville. Baseball and football are vastly different sports, which require different mindsets. Torrence mentioned how difficult it was to bounce back from mistakes or bad games in football because there is a week between games to dwell on them. In baseball, there’s usually a game the next day to help forget about mistakes. “I think that was probably the biggest adjustment for me to realize, was my mind-frame around that. I can’t give up any plays around here and, if I do, I got to forget about them right away,” Torrence said. “In baseball you have the next day to go 3-4, a double and a home run, and make a diving catch in the outfield. You can 0-3 the next day and come back and go 3-3 the next, so I think that was probably the biggest challenge for me.” Torrence said it was difficult to be a two-sport athlete. The situation was trying because he played baseball during the summer, when his teammates on the football team would be preparing for the season. Getting a late start on football was a tough adjustment to make. “I was in a different world, I would say. I wasn’t in the same situation that a lot of people were in here. My situation was very different from all types of angles,” he said. Eventually, he caught up to speed with his teammates. The relationships he’s created with them are important to him. Torrence said he’s made numerous bonds that he plans to maintain. “Those guys will be my best friends for the rest of my life. (Jermale Hines) and (Chekwa), I can rely on those guys for anything I need, or anything they need they can count on me to be there — (It’s) the same with (Cameron Heyward) and those guys. We kid and joke around all the time with each other, but I know that if I was ever in a serious situation and I needed anything really bad, that those guys would have my back,” he said. “I’m just glad that I was fortunate to come here and develop the relationships with those guys for the future.” read more
