Why a lack of recruitment may not be Sheffield Wednesday’s biggest problem this summer

Why a lack of recruitment may not be Sheffield Wednesday’s biggest problem this summer

When Carlos Carvalhal revealed at the end of May his intention to bring ‘four or five’ new players to Sheffield Wednesday, few would have predicted the Owls’ current predicament. Two and a half months on and two games into the new Championship season, George Boyd remains the only fresh face at Hillsborough, despite one or two glaring holes in Carvalhal’s squad. Carlos Carvalhal, manager of Sheffield Wednesday It has become evident over the past few weeks that financial fair play is more of a factor than many Wednesdayites had initially envisioned, but surely the Portuguese…

India vs Sri Lanka: Cheteshwar Pujara’s stop-start Test career turns 50, but there’s a long way to go

India vs Sri Lanka: Cheteshwar Pujara’s stop-start Test career turns 50, but there’s a long way to go

Cheteshwar Pujara is on the verge of his 50th Test match for India. The landmark brings both a sense of sadness and relief. The boy wonder from Rajkot, the man who was the highest run-getter in 2006 U19 World Cup, the one who stormed the domestic scene with three triple hundreds in 2008, that guy should have played a few more Tests for India by now. But then we shouldn’t get too greedy. A pure Test cricket technician, almost a one of his kind batsman in this era lasting this…

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017: Crowning glory continues to elude a deserving career

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017: Crowning glory continues to elude a deserving career

It wasn’t quite Indian women’s cricket’s Balwinder Singh Sandhu moment, but it came close. Sandhu did it in the 1983 World Cup final, bowling a vicious delivery and knocking out Gordon Greenidge’s off-stump. Just three days ago, Jhulan Goswami bowled an away-goer to Meg Lanning in the Women’s World Cup semi final — arguably the ball of the tournament — that angled in and straightened after pitching, hitting the top of off. Lanning, the biggest star in women’s cricket — aptly nicknamed as the Megastar — went for a duck…

CEO: Career vs. children is the wrong mindset—it’s not a trade off

CEO: Career vs. children is the wrong mindset—it’s not a trade off

Recently, I sat in the back of an elementary school classroom in southeast London, on a Saturday morning. As I watched a group of beginner guitar players, including Isak, my five year old grandson, I frantically scribbled down the teacher’s fingering for the intro chords of “Uptown Funk.” At the end of class, my mind raced to a question I have occasionally considered over the years: “Did I sacrifice experiences such as this with my own children, because of devotion to my career, and would I do it differently a…

This close bond wasn’t a result of the usual experiences that bring students and their instructors together, like individual office meetings or vibrant classroom discussions. The closeness was created digitally, because this was a class delivered…
