Will Jordy Nelson’s big game for Raiders come this weekend?

Allegri slams Juventus after win

first_imgJuventus Play like that and we’ll lose to AC Milan – Allegri slams Juventus after win Joe Wright Last updated 2 years ago 08:02 10/26/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) GOAL.com Juventus Juventus v SPAL SPAL Serie A The Serie A holders recorded a 4-1 win over SPAL, but their manager was not happy with his players’ performances heading into a key game Massimiliano Allegri slammed Juventus for what he considered to be lapses in concentration in their 4-1 Serie A win over SPAL.Goals from Federico Bernardeschi, Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado earned the champions all three points in Turin and kept them three behind league leaders Napoli.Juve 10/11 to beat Milan with dabblebet Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Stunning strikes from Bernardeschi and Dybala put Juve in control inside 22 minutes but Alberto Paloschi gave the struggling visitors a lifeline before the break, and they thought they had made it 2-2 through Marios Oikonomou, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.Juve’s last home game in the top flight ended in a 2-1 defeat to Lazio after they surrendered a lead and missed a last-minute penalty, despite having controlled the game for much of the first half.And Allegri saw too many similarities with that game on Wednesday, warning his players to expect a defeat against AC Milan at San Siro on Saturday if they do not show some improvement.”If we play like this at San Siro against Milan, we will certainly lose,” he said to Mediaset Premium .”We still haven’t worked out that it’s nice to score good goals but that we’ve got to keep the intensity and concentration up. “We got ourselves into trouble and SPAL did well to get back into the game. In the second half, we took a big risk with Alberto Paloschi and fortunately it was offside.”We have to find a balance or it will be difficult to win the title. We don’t just want to attack or defend, but maintain a balance.”After going 2-0 up, there were three mistakes, one after the other, SPAL were able to control the ball. Anything could have happened if it had got to 2-2. You cannot afford that against the bigger clubs. Look what happened to us against Lazio.”I’m very demanding when it comes to this and the boys will understand it.”He added: “I hope this is the last time that I will have to throw my jacket to the ground [in anger]. I’m getting older. The boys are good but they have to be more careful.”last_img read more

Questions raised over retailers who shame shoplifters with photos

first_imgA Newfoundland sex store’s social-media shaming of an alleged shoplifter has raised ethical questions over retailers who display security footage to catch thieves.Provincial privacy commissioner Donovan Molloy has reportedly encouraged businesses to take the footage to police, rather than share images of people who have not been found guilty of a crime.Privacy lawyer David Fraser said reasonable, ethical judgement should be used in these cases, especially online where images can spread quickly.Fraser said taking footage to law enforcement is probably legally safer than businesses sharing it on their own, but pointed out police can also get caught up in the grey area.A woman recently sued Ottawa Police Services Board and Ottawa Capital Area Crime Stoppers for defamation and negligence over shared mall security footage alleging she “stole” a purse when she had actually taken it to a lost and found.In 2015, a store stopped posting bulletin board pictures of suspected shoplifters after Canada’s privacy commissioner found the practice “not permissible” under the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, according to the commissioner’s web site.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
