City to face Liverpool in League Cup Final

first_imgControversy then erupted as Raheem Sterling then appeared to take the ball out of play before teeing up substitute Kevin De Bruyne to level the tie, but Aguero completed City’s fightback.The major downside for title-chasing City was the loss of the influential De Bruyne through injury late on, with the Belgian carried off after appearing to get his studs caught in the turf.That took the shine off City’s achievement but the team could still reflect on an excellent comeback after a compelling cup tie.After their late push to sell tickets, City tried to stoke up the atmosphere with loud pyrotechnics while fans brought out their 1980s throwback inflatable bananas in their hundreds.City controlled the majority of possession but Everton looked dangerous on the counter-attack.It was from such a break the visitors took the lead after 18 minutes. As Aguero appealed for a foul after a tumbling under a Ramiro Funes Mori challenge, Everton quickly surged forward and fed the dangerous Barkley.City had begun with Yaya Toure playing deep at the base of a midfield diamond, but the Ivorian was caught out of position as Barkley raced into space. Nicolas Otamendi was also outpaced as Barkley reached the edge of the area and fired a low shot past Willy Caballero, the City goalkeeping choice in cup football.Trailing 3-1 on aggregate, City needed to respond and did so quickly. They looked to supply Aguero at every opportunity and David Silva found him with a clever flick. The Argentinian’s long-range shot was blocked but Fernandinho followed up and fired home via a deflection off Leighton Baines.Aguero rattled the post with a ferocious effort soon after and Joel Robles produced a brilliant reflex save as Silva pounced on Phil Jagielka’s failed clearance.The contest was a gripping and entertaining one and the pace was maintained after the break as Barkley broke clear and tested Caballero before Aguero got into position, only to miskick.Silva became the second City player to hit the woodwork when he headed against the post from a Pablo Zabaleta cross and Toure could not quite reach the rebound.Everton began to look like a team clinging on as Aguero almost turned in a cross from Sterling and the latter then had a shot blocked.The goal City’s play warranted, and levelled the tie, came after 70 minutes – but with a huge slice of controversy.Sterling appeared to do well as he reached the byline to cross for substitute De Bruyne to rifle home – but the ball had gone out of play before it was pulled back by the England forward. None of the officials spotted it and Everton were left to rue their luck.After being controversially denied a penalty in the first leg – while Sterling himself had a strong shout for a spot-kick turned down in the league match between the clubs a fortnight ago – City took full advantage.Six minutes later Aguero put City ahead on aggregate with a superb glancing header from a pinpoint De Bruyne cross.The tension was evident in the closing minutes as players from both sides flew into tackles but City held on, although the loss of De Bruyne was a late blow.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000MANCHESTER, ENGLAND – JANUARY 27: (R-L) Sergio Aguero of Manchester City celebrates with teammates David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne after scoring his team’s third goal during the Capital One Cup Semi Final, second leg match between Manchester City and Everton at the Etihad Stadium on January 27, 2016 in Manchester, England.

55% Of People Regularly or Always Fake Their Web Identity

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Pic by miss.chaos Our currentpoll has been causing a bit of water cooler discussion amongst the Read/WriteWebauthors. The question we’re asking in the poll is: in your current Webactivities where an identity is required (i.e. you can’t be anonymous) do youever fake all or part of your identity?After 511 votes so far, an astonishing 55% of respondents say they regularlyor always use fake Web identities. Just 12% of people said theyalways use their real identity. Remember we’re specifically asking about thetimes when you use an identity rather than being simply anonymous – so forexample if you use online dating sites, peer-to-peer transactions sites such ascraigslist or ebay, and general social networking sites like MySpace and SecondLife.One thought amongst the R/WW authors was that the poll might be a bit toogeneral. Indeed the poll results reminded me of a comment made on an earlier R/WW post(by Jitendra Gupta) about ThrowawayIdentities. This is an extract from the comment I’m referring to, which wasmade by a 19-year old:“I think there’s two areas that need to be treated separately:1 – Teenage social things like myspace, IM, video games etc. 2 – Serious things where someone can ruin your career or life by stealing youridentity.In the second area a system like openID is needed, but in the first it’sfun to change your identity and it’s even part of the experience.”So perhaps the Web is encouraging people, particularly the youngergeneration, to experiment with identity in social networks and the like. Thatit’s all part of the Web experience these days. Butwhen it comes to ‘serious’ things, like buying and selling on eBay, then peoplewill use their real identities.What do others make of the poll results so far? 55% of people regularly oralways faking their Web identity seems quite high, but is it just a reflectionof the current era of the Web – which is mostly about socializing andentertainment? Also perhaps faking your Web identity is just plain common sense onsocial networks and social blogs, because who knows if what you write today willbite you in the bum 10-15 years down the line.
