Chelsea were hit with an injury scare on Tuesday afternoon when Eden Hazard was forced out of training with the Belgium squad with an achilles problem.
The forward had told his national team’s doctors that he had been struggling with pain in his achilles for the past two to three weeks…

They set him running, but after an initial assessment decided that he should pull out of the rest of training.
Belgian officials still expect him to play a part of their World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Friday but are carefully managing the injury.
With Belgium sat top of their group and in a good place to qualify for Rio next summer it is unlikely they will unduly risk him. A serious achilles tear would end his season.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has insisted that young forwards Romelu Lukaku and Victor Moses are in his long-term plans despite allowing allowing the pair to leave on loan for the season to Everton and Liverpool respectively.
‘I think its time for everyone to stop thinking about selling and buying players,’ the Blues boss told Chelsea TV.
‘There are always little things to do on the last day, people to leave. We have to think about the club but we also have to think about what is best for the players individually.

For now: Lukaku has also gone on loan to Everton, but Mourinho has attempeted to justify the moves

‘We decided Moses and Lukaku – two players we were more than happy to keep – that it’s better for the club and the future of the players if they go on loan.
‘With Lukaku, we have Fernando, Eto’o and Demba. Of course he would get playing time, but it’s the choice of playing basically every weekend.
‘He had lots of clubs and options, and we have to respect his decision.’

Woman Arrested, Charged to Court for allegedly trying to Kill Her Boyfriend with her Big Brèast During Sèx


A man claims he was nearly killed after his girlfriend choked him with her over sized chest, according to court proceedings.

A high-flying lawyer fled in terror nakèd after his girlfriend used her 38DDs in an attempt to kill him, a German court has heard.

Tim Schmidt, 30, said his girlfriend, Franziska Hansen, 33, mounted her assault while they were having sèx because she was jealous of his successful career.

She denies the charge of attempted murder with a deadly weapon after the incident in the city of Unna. According to her, it was a sèx game gone wrong and Schmidt panicked.

He told the court he was admiring her large chest closely when she suddenly stuck his head between her chest and squeezed hard. Schmidt was smothered and began to panic as he struggled to breathe, the court heard.

Schmidt told the court: “I was sitting there and I was kissing her chest when suddenly she grabbed my head in pushed it between her chest and held my head with all her might. I could not breathe, I must have turned blue. I could not tear myself free and thought I was going to die.”

He managed to pull free from the clutches of his girlfriend and run nakèd into the street. A neighbor allowed him to call the police from his home.
Hansen later admitted the plot during a phone conversation, he said. She said: “Treasure. I wanted your death to be as pleasant as possible.”

Flying Eagles’ Ajayi Shines In Arsenal Trials

The towering defender apart from being solid in the defence got a goal for Arsenal in 3-0 thrashing of Rovers at Leigh Sports Village.

Nigeria Under 20 defender Oluwasemilogo Ajayi shone like a million stars for the Arsenal U-21 team in a friendly against Blackburn Rovers.
The 19-year-old Nigeria star, who is at Arsenal on trials from Charlton Athletic, gave coach Steve Gatting’s Arsenal U-21 side the lead in the 18th minute with a header off Kristoffer Olsson’s cross.
It was certainly the right way for the centre-back to make a positive impression on his potential future employers. It is no secret that Arsenal are short of defenders at this level, although, on this early evidence, Ajayi appears a far more promising prospect than fellow trialist Ramy Bensebaini.
Daniel Boateng and another Nigerian, Chuba Akpom, scored the other goals for Arsenal.
Ajayi featured for Nigeria U-20s at the Toulon International tournament in France earlier this year, but was later dropped for the World Cup party.

Why I Have Been Missing On The Music Scene- Sasha

  Here is what the rapper now fashion designer said in a recent interview to journalists.

“‘It was a deliberate decision because I needed to take some time out to focus on my retail clothing line, ‘Eclectic by Sasha’.
My dream is very big; I want to be in every state in Nigeria. The fashion in Nigeria was getting bigger and what I wanted to do had not been done. I had to just focus on my fashion business.
Even during that time, I made sure I released one or two singles and collaborated with other artistes.
We are still recording but I am not going to announce any dates. All I would say is that we are very excited about the new sound we are working on.”

"Forget 2015" – PDP Governors Tell Jonathan

The civil war in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is likely to escalate, with aggrieved governors giving four conditions for peace.
They tabled the conditions at a meeting on Sunday night with President Goodluck Jonathan, 16 governors, and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of a faction of the party, Chief Tony Anenih.
The conditions are that:
•factional National Chairman Bamanga Tukur should be sacked;
•President Jonathan should do one term only and forget re-election in 2015;
•the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) and Rivers State crises should be resolved; and
•”harassment” of governors by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) should be stopped…
Attempts were made to narrow the conditions to two but no progress was made, The Nation learnt.
The two factions only succeeded in setting agenda for resumption of talks today.
But the National Secretary of the Atiku-Governors faction of the PDP, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, said yesterday that despite the intervention by Jonathan, ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and other party leaders, members of the New PDP would not abandon their struggle.
Oyinlola, who issued a statement in Abuja, said the faction would not disappoint members in the mission to make the PDP work again in the interest of Nigeria and its people.
Sources said that Sunday’s meeting was a no-holds-barred type, with Jonathan feeling overwhelmed.
It was gathered that the seven governors, who were represented by four of their colleagues, complained lack of internal democracy in the party and “repression” by the Presidency.
“The governors demanded the removal of the factional National Chairman of PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur to have genuine reconciliation in the party, a source said, adding: “They also asked the President to stick to the agreement he purportedly had with party leaders to spend one term in office. They urged Jonathan to come out openly on his rumoured re-election bid in 2015.
They listed the crises in the NGF and Rivers State and promotion of parallel party structure in some PDP states as their grouses.
Another source at the session said Kwankwaso spoke first, complaining against the use of EFCC by the Presidency to witch-hunt governors who have mere political disagreements with the President.
Said the source: “Kwankwaso cited the arrest and prosecution of a son of the Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido, by the EFCC. He insisted that the prosecution of Lamido’s son was triggered by the Presidency when it was obvious that the victim was on a medical trip to Egypt.
“Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, whose brother was recently grilled by one of the anti-graft agencies over alleged N60million contract, was quoted as saying ‘I have been facing EFCC probe because I served in the executive of Senator Bukola Saraki. There is an atmosphere of fear in Kwara over activities of the EFCC’.
Governors Jonah Jang, Godswill Akpabio, and Gabriel Suswam reportedly pleaded for understanding.
Jonathan, according to the sources, described the party’s challenges as “resolvable”.
Another source quoted Jonathan as follows: “All the problems analysed are within human capacity, we will address them.
“Those within my powers, I will address them personally and those for the party, I will get the party to address them
“But we should all remember that PDP is a party in all localities in Nigeria and because of that we will not allow anything that will undermine the PDP.”
