With Demba Ba, who proved a nuisance at Norwich, also at his disposal, Mourinho has a decision to make on whom to select on Sunday to play against a Manchester City defence without their captain Vincent Kompany. Mourinho gave short shrift to suggestions he might be envious of City’s striking options and is content with his target men. “I’m happy with all of them, I’m happy with all the strikers,” he said. “They were not scoring goals, but were working really hard, they doing a really good job for the team. “There are different ways to contribute, sometimes scoring goals – which is the most important thing of course – but there are other ways to contribute to a team performance and they always did, all three. “All three are working hard and the last week was a positive week for Samuel and Fernando, because they scored goals and that’s what gives them the greatest happiness for a striker.” Eto’o’s strike against Cardiff was his first Chelsea goal, but he might have had one sooner, in particular in the defeat at Everton, where he wasted a number of opportunities. That defeat still rankles for Mourinho, even though he is happier now with his team’s efforts in front of goal. Jose Mourinho has confidence in his Chelsea strikers, despite their less than prolific start to the season. Samuel Eto’o scored the first Barclays Premier League goal by a Chelsea striker – other than Romelu Lukaku, who is scoring freely on loan at Everton – in last Saturday’s defeat of Cardiff. Fernando Torres then netted twice in Tuesday night’s Champions League defeat of Schalke. Chelsea are unbeaten since the Everton loss with a home defeat to Basle in the Champions League, a run of seven games which began with the west London derby win over Fulham. In the last four matches the Blues have netted 14 times, conceding once. “The game where you should score more goals was the game we didn’t score and the game we lost at Everton,” Mourinho added. “We didn’t score. Now we are scoring. Now we are scoring with less chances. “Schalke, the first time we (went forward) we scored. “Sometimes matches go in one direction that you cannot control. “What left me always calm was the way the team was playing. “I cannot say against Basle, I cannot say first half against Fulham because we were really struggling, maybe mentally, in that difficult period of results. “But the team was playing well. The team was normally dominant, creating chances, controlling the game well. “But in the last period we are scoring goals and that gives some confidence.” Press Association read more
The Haitian-American duo Joshua Jean-Baptiste and Edson Jean has hit the jackpot with their new series, GROWN.Last fall the Haitian-American filmmakers, hosted a seminar called ‘Don’t Take Yes for an Answer,’ which took place at Tower Theater in Miami. This event was successful, and they proved what they meant by don’t take yes for an answer with their new GROWN series.Adaptive Studios, Complex Networks, and Miami Dade College’s Miami Film Festival premiered the Grown series on June 5, 2018, at the Tower Theater in Miami. Two episodes were shown and was followed by a Q, and A session with the writers let by Miami Film Festival’s Jaie Laplante, Executive Director & Director of Programming.This new series was created by Joshua Jean-Baptiste, Edson Jean, and Maria Corina Ramirez. GROWN is a spinoff of the show that won Project Greenlight in 2016 which was a joint venture launched by Verizon and Hearst.Both Jean-Baptiste and Jean star in “GROWN,” “which is a comedy about the ups and downs of two dichotomous twenty-something cousins who are forced to cohabit.” The duo states they wanted this show to be authentic with real Haitian actors and actresses, along with other nationalities such as Cuban and Venezuela; which they have succeeded in doing. Jean said show is important to “starting that conversation, a dialogue” about the Haitian culture and the various cultures depicted in the show. Jean-Baptiste conveyed that “without authenticity, the show doesn’t exist.” Ramirez (who is from Venezuela) shared that growing up she saw no one looking like her on TV and in writing this show, she want to share some of her nationally with the audience.On June 5th the theater was packed, and the audience was noticeable enthusiastic. Many described it as “authentic, real, and funny.” A Q and A session followed the show, and this went well. The audience got a feel about the history of the writers and the background of the show.
