Silva: Title race not Everton’s fight

first_imgMarco Silva insists he has no interest in the impact Manchester City’s trip to Everton might have upon the Premier League title race.City will replace Everton’s Merseyside rivals Liverpool at the summit on goal difference if they leave Goodison Park with victory on Wednesday.AdChoices广告However, Silva’s own predicament in trying to turn around a slump of three wins and seven defeats over the course of 12 matches in the Premier League since the start of December is at the forefront of his mind.

Speaking at a pre-match news conference, he rejected suggestions that the loyalties of Everton fans might be compromised by their desire to see Liverpool fall short in their quest for glory.”What I want really and what my feeling is, it is not this title race,” Silva said. “It is not for us to look to that fight. We know what is our fight.”For sure, what our fans want tomorrow is our team winning the game. At this moment, not just two teams are fighting – more than two teams are fighting for this title. There are many games to play. Nothing will be decided by this game against City.”Silva’s personal fight would appear to be keeping a job where Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce have all been shown the exit door over recent seasons.Everton’s recent slump moved owner Farhad Moshiri to restate his opinion that the former Olympiacos, Hull City and Watford boss is his man for the long-term and a coach who can develop young talent at the club.”This is something I have felt from the first day since I joined this club,” Silva said of his boss’ support.”When you are winning games the things people say are good. When you are not, it is normal this type of situation.”It is nothing new in our club. If you look at the last three seasons it is maybe every month this type of situation. I am here to talk about the present and nothing more.”You are always in contact [with Moshiri]. I know his feelings and our project.”| The manager confirms @IGanaGueye is available for tomorrow’s game against @mancity – but Yerry Mina, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka will miss out.https://t.co/xkKr74QwhR— Everton (@Everton) February 5, 2019Silva will welcome back Idrissa Gueye after the influential midfielder sat out Everton’s previous two games with a knock – a welcome boost for the challenge of taking on Pep Guardiola’s side.”It will be really tough. In my opinion that team play the best football in the Premier League even if in some away games they didn’t achieve the results,” he added.”They obligate the teams to suffer. They will play with 70 or 80 per cent of the ball. We have to be ready to suffer and be solid in these types of moments.”When we have our moments with the ball we have to be ambitious to try and make some damage on them.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

Science Without Borders connects Brazilian students with research and Canadian winter

Brock University is playing host to 39 students from Brazil as part of the Science Without Borders program. The students were recently welcomed at a ceremony in their honour.Nothing spells challenge like SWB.Short for the Science Without Borders program, SWB has resulted in Brock University welcoming 39 students from Brazil who are here for one year to tackle a program of intensive English, academic studies and a short-term research internship.The program’s goal is to consolidate and expand science, technology and innovation in Brazil by means of international exchange and mobility.The Brazilians, including 25 who began classes in January, are here on full scholarships from their government and come from 29 different federal and state universities across their homeland. Their fields of study include biology, biotechnology, chemistry, child and youth studies, computer sciences, digital humanities, health sciences, physiotherapy, radio and television and more.Student Bruna Razzolini, 22, from in Porto Alegre, a city of about 1.5 million people in southern Brazil, is learning English now but starting in September, she will study health sciences for two terms.“I think this is a great opportunity for the Brazilian students to know a different culture and improve their knowledge,” Razzolini said. “It is also a good deal for Brazil, too, because this experience will (allow us to) bring new technologies and new information back to Brazil.”Although she’s been here a short time, Razzolini is an unabashed fan of Canada.“I think Canada is one of the best countries in the world to live. Canadians are really polite and make us feel comfortable,” she said.“Brock University has good infrastructure to receive exchange students, and the facilities are awesome,” she added.Aline Del Giudice Penha is a 21-year-old health sciences student from São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city with 11 million inhabitants.You don’t have to sell Del Giudice Penha on the SWB program, which started last year and will run for four years.“I am loving it,” she said. “I think it’s a unique opportunity to improve my English, which will have significant importance on my professional life, to get in touch with another culture and see another country and education system.”Like Razzolini, she thinks the academic experience “is an excellent opportunity to get in contact with new knowledge and technologies to bring it back to our home country.”Del Giudice Penha said she finds Canada “an amazing country. Every aspect here is fascinating.”She’s a fan of St. Catharines, too, which she described as a lovely, friendly city with many things to do.“Also, it is very close to Niagara Falls, which is one of the most wonderful places on Earth,” she said.“Brock is amazing,” Del Giudice Penha added. “I live on campus, so for me it is very easy to go everywhere I want, anytime I want … and the teachers really care about students. I have been well received by all and I feel at home here … I made friends from all parts of the world.”And winter? “I was really scared about winter before coming to Canada,” Del Giudice Penha said. “But we are used to it and we just learned how to deal with it.” read more
