These are the Gold Coast’s top five streets

first_img103-105 Hedges Ave, Mermaid Beach, sold in April for $11.6 million.IT’S long been known as Millionaire’s Row for its stunning mansions and the A-listers who live in them, but now it has a new claim to fame.Hedges Ave at Mermaid Beach has been dubbed the Gold Coast’s best street in a vote by the city’s leading real estate industry identities.The Bulletin asked 20 prominent agents to nominate the best five streets on the Glitter Strip.They were then rated from one-five with the top picks achieving five points down to the fifth choice getting one point.Using this method, the beachfront street came out tops with 63 points and 16 votes.Monaco St at Broadbeach Waters was second; followed by Commodore Drive in Surfers Paradise; Albatross Ave, Mermaid Beach; and Admiralty Drive, Surfers Paradise. 75-77 Monaco St, Broadbeach Waters, sold in March 2017 for $9 millionJohn Henderson Professionals Mermaid Beach director Luke Henderson rated Hedges Ave the best street.“It’s probably the most well-known street in Queensland,” he said.“There’s a lot of high-profile identities that live on the street and a lot of the properties have been under the same ownership for decades.”Mr Henderson said it was the street’s prominent beachfront location with easy access to restaurants and cafes that made it so popular.He thought Albatross Ave would have been rated higher than Monaco St and Commodore Drive for this reason.“One thing that diversifies the Gold Coast from Brisbane and Toowoomba is the beach,” Mr Henderson said.“My view is that the beach is certainly more a destination location than the river.”Kollosche Prestige Agents managing director Michael Kollosche rated Hedges and Albatross avenues equal best, mainly because of the beachfront lifestyle they offered.

Salah prompted by Messi’s claim to stun the world

first_img Apart from Salah not being Klopp’s first choice last summer (his credentials were continually pushed by the sporting director Michael Edwards, the head of recruitment Dave Fallows and the chief scout Barry Hunter after Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt opted to stay put), the Egyptian was expected to contribute from wide areas after his arrival from Roma but not emerge as a talisman. In a season containing nearly as many superlative descriptions as goals scored, Mohamed Salah continued to write his own Liverpool destiny with four superb finishes in a personal performance at Anfield that was as complete and as ruthless as anything this famous stadium has seen down the decades. Watford will have returned home last night wondering how they were on the end of such a sobering scoreline. They were by no means a shambles. Yet, in sport, ability generally finds a way of shining through and Salah’s class is so clearcut, so emphatic and so enjoyable that he is comfortably the Premier League’s most attractive sight at present. The really frightening thing was he barely broke sweat – his goals completely dismantled Watford yet he maintained a relaxed, smiley air throughout. Two of his goals carried the same jinking manner and positional nous as that displayed by Lionel Messi, and Jürgen Klopp noted that Salah’s form this season is making comparisons between the two increasingly valid. His record, this season at least, is better than Messi. Mohamed Salah has now scored more times in a debut campaign than any Liverpool player in the club’s entire history. He reached number 36 here via a four-goal haul, surpassing Fernando Torres in the record books and surpassing Messi’s total, albeit in two fewer games. Surely only Sergio Agüero can stop Salah now from topping the Premier League charts come May when you take into account Harry Kane’s injury. It is worth remembering too Salah did not arrive from Roma last summer as a forward. For his recruitment at a fee that now feels like loose change, you have to credit Michael Edwards, Liverpool’s sporting director. For Salah’s subtle repositioning, you have to credit Jürgen Klopp and commend his vision. For delivering, you can only credit the player, who is currently in the process of redefining expectations on wingers in this country. They played Ken Dodd’s signature tune ‘Happiness’ at half-time as a tribute to the legendary Liverpool comedian who died last week. Read Also:Salah Beats Mane To Liverpool Goal Of The Month Award As a great entertainer and close friend of Bill Shankly, Doddy would have appreciated what the club have in Mo Salah. Salah hits new heights each time he plays. His first hat-trick for Liverpool on Saturday night ended up as a four-goal haul; two worldies and two poacher’s finishes. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The Liverpool superstar bagged 44 goals across all competitions in his opening campaign and went on to win a plethora of awards for his simply incredible efforts. Four of those strikes came during one match against Watford when the Reds thumped the Hornets 5-0 on this day in 2018. Those watching on were left stunned at how one player could produce such a performance and here’s what the media made of the Egyptian at the time. Mohamed Salah last week starred in an acclaimed advert featuring some of Liverpool’s most historic sights. Anfield, though, remains the perfect stage on which to showcase his own outrageous talents. The Egyptian continued to set new standards as Liverpool responded to Jurgen Klopp’s call by overcoming both the weather and Watford to strengthen claims for a top-four finish. Given Premier League defences have struggled to contain Salah, it was perhaps no surprise the wintry elements proved no barrier. A sensational four-goal haul – with an assist for Roberto Firmino thrown in for good measure – moved him on to 36 goals in 41 games during a remarkable first Liverpool campaign in which he shows no signs of relenting. Salah now has the most amount of goals scored by a Liverpool player during a debut season, surpassing the previous best of 33 by Fernando Torres. Indeed, Torres, John Aldridge, and Luis Suarez never netted so many in a single term for the Reds. No player in Europe’s top five leagues has scored more goals this season. In a season of so many highs, so many spectacular goals, this was something special from Salah, made all the more memorable by it being achieved amid constant snow flurries. The images from the evening will resonate for years to come. And, whisper it quietly, that Egyptian Messi tag does not look misplaced on this evidence. There are various ways of measuring the jaw-dropping impact that Mohamed Salah is having at Liverpool, but one message in particular scribbled on his first souvenir match ball served to encapsulate his feats succinctly. “I just kept it simple for him,” said captain Jordan Henderson. “I just wrote, ‘Well done superstar.’ ” And in those three words, he summed up the phenomenon that Salah has become; a clinical goalscorer whose penalty-box prowess does not simply astound his opponents, as Watford’s bamboozled backline could testify, but also his manager. Jürgen Klopp confessed afterward that he was not expecting this. Not 36 goals by mid-March certainly and, in truth, probably not half that amount by this stage of the campaign. Mohamed Salah transported football standards into a different stratosphere during his first season at Anfield as he lived up to his nickname ‘Egyptian Messi’.

Arsenal legend approves move for Lille defender Gabriel

first_imgArsenal legend, Nigel Winterburn, has given his tick of approval over the signing of Gabriel from Lille. The Brazilian centre-back is expected to complete a switch to Arsenal this week after the two clubs agreed on a £27m fee. Speaking in an interview with, Winterburn said: “When someone gets linked with Arsenal I tend to do a bit of research on them and have a look at what they’re about. “For me, it’s all about the type of personnel you’re getting as much as the ability. But he’s highly regarded, a left-sided centre-half who is supposed to be very powerful.Advertisement “Arsenal have got problems at centre-half and they can’t seem to get a consistent pairing together with the players they already have in that position, so it’s quite obvious that that’s a position Arteta feels he must strengthen.” Winterburn continued: “It looks like a really positive signing. read also:Atletico Madrid ‘willing to offer Arsenal three players for Lacazette’ “The one slight worry I have is that it seems to be taking a very long time, even though he’s been linked for a while and Arsenal seem to be the main contenders for his signature, but I’m always a bit weary of Arsenal signings when they don’t get done quickly. But I still hope he signs for the club in the next few days.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Greatest Disney Female Villains We Love Anyways5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks8 Things That Will Happen If An Asteroid Hits Earth8 Scenes That Prove TV Has Gone Too Far8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

McDowell heroics ended

first_img “It was a great day,” said Dubuisson, who is guaranteed US dollars 510,000 for reaching the last four to add to his winnings from the Turkish Airlines Open at the end of last season. The 23-year-old is now all but assured of making Paul McGinley’s European team for Gleneagles and added: ” The key was my short game. I have been really practising hard here from the high rough and at the end it paid off because my chip on 17 was unplayable but I managed to make a good up and down.” Another up and down on the last left McDowell with a birdie putt to force extra holes, but for once the Northern Irishman was not able to hole the vital putt. Dubuisson will play Ernie Els in the last four, the seven-time Volvo World Match Play champion beating a demoralised Jordan Spieth 4&2. Spieth admitted he was “embarrassed” at his behaviour on the course as he looked out of sorts throughout, but commendably admitted his failings just minutes after the match had ended. “I didn’t have my stuff today but at the same time, mentally I didn’t handle it very well,” said the 20-year-old, who was the PGA Tour rookie of the year in 2013. “Wanting it so bad I just didn’t let things happen and you can’t show weakness to Ernie, he’s going to take advantage of it and that’s what I did today. “I was dropping clubs; I played a round like I was 14 years old and you can’t do that on this level. I’ll look back and learn from it.” Els, at 44 looking to become the oldest winner of the event, admitted he had taken full advantage of Spieth’s meltdown, adding: “I was also young once. Graeme McDowell’s brilliant run in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship finally came to an end on Saturday as Victor Dubuisson booked his place in the semi-finals – and with it a likely Ryder Cup debut. Press Association “I could see he was a little frustrated because he wasn’t quite playing the way he played the rest of the week and that happens, under pressure you have to adapt. He’s going to learn it’s not always going to be rosy and nice, sometimes you’re going to have to work for it.” In the other half of the draw, Australia’s Jason Day beat an ailing Louis Oosthuizen to set up a semi-final with Rickie Fowler, who came through a rollercoaster clash with compatriot Jim Furyk. Oosthuizen received lengthy treatment for a back injury before play started and needed more out on the course before eventually losing 2&1 to Day, who reached the last four for the second year running. “I was disappointed to start on the range this morning not feeling too good,” former Open champion Oosthuizen said. “It got better, the last four or five holes I felt I could get through the ball better. It’s a bit painful that it always happens when I’m playing well and I need to address it big time and get it sorted. “I felt I played really well but you can’t give away holes to a guy like Jason. I had a tough start and it was really tough to get back from that.” Fowler looked to be cruising to victory when he was three up with six holes to play, only for Furyk to birdie the 13th, 14th and 15th and then take the lead with a par on the 16th. However, Furyk then bogeyed the last two holes – as he did at Medinah in 2012 to lose his crucial Ryder Cup singles match to Sergio Garcia – including a fluffed chip on the 18th, to gift Fowler the victory. “I just had to try and stay patient,” Fowler said of going behind on the 16th. “I had to make two pars but tough pars in the situation. It was unfortunate to see Jim hit the chip the way he did on the last hole. I really thought he was going to hit one up there like he did on the second one.” McDowell had played 58 holes to reach the quarter-finals and had remarkably never stood on any tee with the lead, producing miraculous comebacks to edge past Gary Woodland, Hideki Matsuyama and Hunter Mahan. And although the former US Open champion needed just two holes to finally get his nose in front against Dubuisson, the Frenchman fought back superbly and after taking the lead for the third time on the 16th – McDowell three-putted it for the second day running – held onto it with brilliant par saves on the last two holes. last_img read more

Regal Masters end Florida Cup preparation with crushing win

first_imgREGAL Masters will wing out for Florida Cup 2019 full of confidence after winning a specially-organised four-team tournament at Malteenoes Sports Club ground, Thomas Lands last Sunday.After overcoming Fishermen Masters in the semifinals, thanks to a swashbuckling unbeaten 102 from Eric Thomas, the yellow and green army then disposed of Mike’s Wellman by six wickets in the final to add another title to their collection.Set an imposing 157 runs to win from 15 overs, Regal Masters’ run chase was off to a perfect stat with eventual Man-of-the-Match Throy Kippins and Eion Abel racing to 72 in seven overs, before the latter was bowled by Greg DeFranca for 28. Kippins, who was fourth to be dismissed, then added 35 with fellow Berbician, Rudolph Baker, who clobbered 32 (9 balls, 5×6) and 28 for the third wicket with Samuel Kingston (10).Rawl Reid (2-12) almost spoiled the fun for the Florida Cup champions when he accounted for Baker, Kingston and Kippins 40 runs (2×4, 2×6) in the space of two overs.When Kippins was spectacularly snapped up, by Reid running back to his own bowling at the end of the 13th over, Regal Masters still needed 18 runs to win from 12 balls with two new batsmen at the crease.However, in the very next over Mohendra Arjune took Latchman Kallicharran to the cleaners taking 21 runs to ease to victory with six wickets with an over to spare. Arjune finished on 18 not out from five balls (3×4; 1×6) and David Harper was one not out when the target was reached.Earlier, attacking right-handed opener Lloyd Ruplall played some attractive strokes to get Wellman to a competitive 156 for 4 from their 15 overs. Ruplall who carried his bat for 68 (4×4, 5×6) was supported by opener Greg DeFranca who made 31 (5×4, 1×6) and Eon Lovell with 31 (1×4, 4×6).All of the bowlers had their work cut out on the small outfield, but Arjune snared 2 for 46 and was ably supported by Kippins (1-28) and leg-spinner Tyrone Sanasie (1-29).The tournament, organised by Wayne Jones, gave Regal Masters much-needed match practice ahead of the Florida Cup which gets underway on Friday, April 12 and runs until Sunday, April 14 in Fort Lauderdale.It is the 15th edition of the international tournament and more than 30 teams from Canada, Guyana, New York, Florida, Orlando and Minnesota are expected to compete in three categories; All-Stars, Masters Over-40 and Legends Over-50.Regal Masters are the defending champions of the Masters category and have ended their long period of intense preparation in perfect fashion, to head to North America gunning for a title repeat. They and Regal All-Stars are the only teams in the tournament from Guyana.last_img read more

No. 4 Syracuse’s dominance in individual battles adds to potent offense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Relation to SU Current StudentEmployee of SUAlumniParent of Current/Former StudentLocal CNY ResidentOther Sign up for The Daily Orange Newsletter Email Address * “If we know our matchups, we can take our matchups and get a goal out of it,” Meaghan Tyrrell said.Instinct stems from lacrosse IQ, Gait said. Syracuse does one-on-one drills regularly, and through that they’ve learned to observe things like the defender’s body positioning.Depending on whether the defender’s hips are open or square, Syracuse’s attacks can select the best one-on-one move for that scenario. Tyrrell utilizes split, roll and topside dodges, she said, but it’s all about each player’s preference.“Whatever they practice the most, that’s how they get in,” Swart said.Midway through the first half against Colgate, Rahal intercepted a pass at Syracuse’s 30-yard line. Immediately, she felt a Raiders defender contesting the ball, but she rotated away and sprinted from the pressure. Rahal’s individual skill sparked a counterattack where the Orange scored through Tyrrell.The spin is Rahal’s signature move in one-on-one situations. She didn’t even know she utilized the move so frequently until her teammates told her. When the defense is forcing her one way, her body naturally tells her to spin the other way, she said.“Mary (Rahal) is a spin-move queen,” Swart said.The Orange’s one-on-one play sets up for the offense to run as an entire unit. Leading-scorer Emily Hawryschuk tends to draw the best defender, Carney said, leaving one-on-one opportunities for her, Tyrrell, Swart and others.Playing against a lot of teams that like to play man-to-man defense helps that one-on-one game as well, Gait said. Because the team capitalizes on one-on-one opportunities, that opens up things like the extra pass, Swart said.“The individual talent,” Gait said, “It just builds into the team talent.” Comments Published on March 10, 2020 at 11:04 pm Contact Roshan: | @Roshan_f16 From the left edge of the 8-meter arc, Megan Carney stutter-stepped and swung her stick side-to-side. She squared her hips with Northwestern’s Liza Elder and spun counterclockwise. Then, the Orange attack sprinted toward the top of the arc and cut back.Elder was caught. Yards behind the play, she could only watch as Carney scored with ease.Carney’s individual effort gave the Orange a 3-2 lead midway through the first half against the then-No. 6 Wildcats on Feb. 22. This season, SU’s offense has been largely characterized by individual talent — moments like Carney’s goal. Through eight games, No. 4 Syracuse (7-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) has scored 137 times, 70 of which have been unassisted. The structure of SU’s offense lends to a lot of flips and small passes that don’t statistically count as assists, head coach Gary Gait said. Regardless, those unassisted goals still emphasize an element of the Orange’s offense — an innate ability to overpower opponents by winning one-on-one matchups.“Our offense is very unique,” Gait said. “We freelance a little bit and make decisions and let our players decide when they get a step on the (opponent).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEmily Steinberger | Design EditorA few weeks before Carney’s goal, Gait brought in an outside company called Shake School to help the Orange improve their dodging and footwork. It’s very difficult to teach players how to do a “shoulder shimmy” or a deceptive move, Gait said, but Shake School created drills to help his players improve their one-on-one skills. Against Northwestern, Carney put those skills to work.“Being able to turn around and go the other way quickly,” Carney said. “(It) just gets the defender shaken up.”The ability to “shake n’ bake” a defender stems back to film review, Carney said. Before game day, when Syracuse scouts opposing teams, they keep an eye on potential mismatches. Typically, they have two film sessions before practice that last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.“Players watch to identify the quality and the level of the defender they’re going to be potentially up against,” Gait said. “It’s really about being prepared.”Even if it’s not a mismatch, knowing about the defender gives an attack assurance, Carney said. That decision of whether or not to challenge a defender one-on-one, and what move to do, is one based on instinct, junior Sam Swart and redshirt senior Mary Rahal said. It’s made in the moment, Rahal said, and it’s about finding a balance between when to be unselfish and when to be selfish. * * indicates requiredlast_img read more
