Breaking News - Tottenham Sack Manager Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked as manager of Tottenham, the Premier League club have confirmed.
Pochettino lifted to new heights after taking charge in 2014, leading them to a second-place finish in the Premier League in 2016-17.

That was the second of four consecutive top-four finishes, meaning Spurs became a regular Champions League fixture on his watch and were beaten finalists in Europe's top competition last season, losing 2-0 to Liverpool in Madrid.

However, a run that featured incredibly dramatic quarter-final and semi-final triumphs over Manchester City and Ajax respectively served to distract from dwindling domestic form that has not picked up this term.

A laboured 1-1 draw against Sheffield United before the international break left Spurs 14th in the table, with three wins and 14 points from 12 top-flight matches.

"We were extremely reluctant to make this change and it is not a decision the board has taken lightly, nor in haste," said Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy in a statement that confirmed coaches Jesus Perez, Miguel D'Agostino and Antoni Jimenez would also leave the club.

"Regrettably domestic results at the end of last season and beginning of this season have been extremely disappointing.

"It falls to the board to make the difficult decisions - this one made more so given the many memorable moments we have had with Mauricio and his coaching staff - but we do so in the club's best interests.

"Mauricio and his coaching staff will always be part of our history. I have the utmost admiration for the manner in which he dealt with the difficult times away from a home ground whilst we built the new stadium and for the warmth and positivity he brought to us.

"I should like to thank him and his coaching staff for all they have contributed. They will always be welcome here.

"We have a talented squad. We need to re-energise and look to deliver a positive season for our supporters."

SLEEP CALCULATOR - How to Calculate When You Should Go to Sleep

How much sleep did you get last night? What about the night before? Keeping track of your sleep schedule may not be a top priority, but getting enough sleep is critical to your health in many ways.
You may not realize it, but the amount of sleep you get can affect everything from your weight and metabolism to your brain function and mood.

For many people, wake-up time is a constant. What time you go to sleep, however, tends to vary depending on your social life, work schedule, family obligations, the newest show streaming on Netflix, or simply when you start to feel tired.

But if you know what time you have to get up, and you know you need a specific amount of sleep to function at your best, you just need to figure out what time to go to bed.

In this article, we’ll help you understand how to calculate the best time to go to bed based on your wake-up time and natural sleep cycles. We’ll also take a closer look at how your sleep cycles work and how sleep can affect your health.

How much sleep do you need? 
How much sleep you need changes throughout your lifetime. An infant may need up to 17 hours of sleep each day, while an older adult may get by on just 7 hours of sleep a night.

But an age-based guideline is strictly that — a suggestion based on research of how much sleep you may need for optimal health as your body’s needs change.

According to the National Sleep Foundation these are the general sleep guidelines for different age groups:

Sleep Guidelines
Birth to 3 months:                  14 to 17 hours
4 to 11 months:                       12 to 15 hours
1 to 2 years:                             11 to 14 hours
3 to 5 years:                             10 to 13 hours
6 to 13 years:                             9 to 11 hours
14 to 17 years:                           8 to 10 hours
18 to 64 years:                           7 to 9 hours
65 years and older:                  7 to 8 hours

Everyone’s sleep needs are different, even within the same age group. Some people may need at least 9 hours of sleep a night to feel well-rested, while others in the same age group may find that 7 hours of sleep is just right for them.

Sleep calculator:
Bedtimes are based on:
(a) Your wake-up time
(b) Completing five or six 90-minute sleep cycles
(c) Allowing 15 minutes to fall asleep.

Wake-up time       Bed time:                         Bed Time:

9 a.m.                         1:15 a.m.                   11:45 p.m.

Why is sleep important
Sleep is crucial for many reasons. A good night’s sleep:

1) Regulates the release of hormones that control your appetite, metabolism, growth, and healing
boosts brain function, concentration, focus, and productivity.

2) Reduces your risk for heart disease and strokeTrusted Source.

3) Helps with weight management
4) Maintains your immune system
5) Lowers your risk of chronic health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

6) Improves athletic performance, reaction time, and speed.
7) May lower your risk of depression.

The bottom line
If you’re aiming for 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night, a sleep calculator can help you figure out what time to go to bed based on your wake-up time. Ideally, you’ll want to wake up at the end of your sleep cycle, which is when you’re most likely to feel the most rested.

A good night’s sleep is essential to good health. If you’re have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, consider talking to your doctor. They can help determine if there’s an underlying cause.

Chelsea Star Fikayo Tomori Speaks On His Parental Root & What Inspires Him At Chelsea

Nigerian born Chelsea star, Fikayo Tomori, has come out to disclose his parental root, why he couldn't turn down England call-up and what inspired him to join the Premier League giants as a youngster.
Tomori joined Chelsea academy alongside Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount and luckily the trio rose through the ranks to become fabulous revelations under club’s manager and legend Frank Lampard.

At Just twenty one, the Chelsea poster boy has also been handed a dream-fulfilling England call-up by coach Gareth Southgate in what ended speculations of his allegiance to Nigeria.

Relishing on his career, Tomori said he was inspired to join Blues because of his admiration for Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, The Nation reports.

“As a kid, I watched Didier Drogba and his exploit at Chelsea inspired kids with African roots like me,” the 21-year-old said.

“I met other guys with Nigerian roots like Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi at the academy and that helped me to feel at home.

“Drogba made every member of my household to support the club, and partly because I was there too,” Tomori submitted.

Tomori, who revealed it was hard to shun England call-up, also admitted he never forgets his Nigerian roots.

“I am first child and the only son of my parents. My father hails from Osogbo, Osun State, South-West Nigeria. I enjoy Nigerian music, I’m Nigerian; it’s my culture and I’m very proud of it,” the 21-year-old said.

NECO Sacks 70 Staff Over Certificate Forgery

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced the dismissal of 70 of its staff over certificate forgery.
This was made known through a statement by the Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, in Minna, Niger State.

MackenzieSkyBlog gathered that the dismissal affects mostly the junior staff while substantial numbers of the senior staff were affected.

According to the statement, the dismissal of the staff was as a result of a report submitted by a committee constituted to verify the certificates of staff by the management of NECO.

Further investigation by NECO revealed that when the body approached the schools of the affected staff where they claimed they had attended, the various institutions denied issuing such certificates to the affected staffs.

The statement reads, “The Certificate Verification Committee carried out its assignment diligently by inviting all staff with questionable credentials to appear before it, during which some staff actually attested that their certificates were fake.

“The committee also contacted the schools and institutions the affected staff claimed to have attended and the schools and institutions denied having certificated them.”

According to the statement, this will be the first phase of the dismissal of staff as more verification was still going on to reveal more people in the organisation.

According to Punch , the governors made the call through the Director-General of the Progressives Governors Forum, Salihu Lukman, in a statement made available on Wednesday in Abuja.

The PGF is an umbrella body of governors of the APC.

The statement said, “In the current circumstance, nothing short of a NEC or National Caucus meeting of the party can resolve all our increasing organisational challenges as a party.

“It is either Oshiomhole respect the provision of the party constitution and convene superior organ meeting to deliberate on all our challenges, or he should just accept his inability to manage the party and simply resign.”

The statement challenged the national leaders to rise to the challenge facing the party and take all necessary measures to convene superior organ meetings to begin to resolve all challenges as a party, saying “The current public disgrace must end!”

Lukman said the call was heightened by the information coming from Edo State indicating that members of the State Executive Council of APC had passed a vote of no confidence on Oshiomhole.
