ALFA ROMEO has launched its 2021 season car in a virtual event held in Warsaw. The 2021 car is a new Ferrari powered car known as C41.

ALFA ROMEO revealed the car in Warsaw in Poland. Warsaw is the home to the official sponsors of the team PKN Orlen.

The car has a new livery which is a revamped red and white compared to the previous season’s colours.

Despite being an upgrade from the 2020 car C39, many of the previous car’s components still exist.

The main areas of the upgrade for this car as confirmed by Jan Monchaux are the front suspension and the nosecone.

The team also did more work on the floor of the car and the diffuser to minimize the loss of downforce. This was done due to the new regulations that have led to the car losing some downforce.

The team plans to hold filming of the car in Barcelona. The filming will be held at the brilliant track of Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

This will be done ahead of the scheduled pre-season testing of the car in Bahrain on 12th March 2021.

Alfa Romeo, also known as Sauber, will be hoping for an improved 2021 season after finishing P8 in the last 2020 season.

The team’s driver line-up of the new 2021 season will consist of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.

The car was unveiled in the Grand Theatre and attended by the team personnel Fredric Vasseur and the technical director Jan Monchaux. The two drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Giovanazzi were in attendance.

“The launch of a new car is always an emotional moment, the culmination of months of effort from everyone back at the factory and the start of a new adventure,” remarked the team boss Frederic Vasseur.

“The C41 is the result of a very unusual situation in Formula One, in which the regulations have made us unable to develop an entirely new car for this year. For this reason, our 2021 car shares a lot of common parts with the C39, except those which the regulations forced us to change such as the floor and the nosecone, in which we invested our two development tokens,” said Technical Director Jan Monchaux.

The 2021 F1 season will start on 18TH MARCH 2021 at the Bahrain International Circuit. Alfa Romeo will look to bridge the gap and jump to the top four of the table.

Ange Postecoglou got the job done against Alloa Athletic in the Scottish Cup fourth round on Saturday.

A 2-1 win against League One side ensured advancement to the showpiece final at Hampden Park later this season.

The goal was to get through, but despite accomplishing that goal, injuries forced Callum McGregor and Yosuke Ideguchi to leave the Indodrill Stadium.

Ange Postecoglou spoke exclusively to Celtic TV about the duo’s fitness and the fifth round, which includes a match versus Raith Rovers at Celtic Park.

The Celtic manager said: “Callum is better today. He wasn’t in great shape after the game but I’ve exchanged messages with him and he feels a bit better, which is great.

“Knowing the type of character Callum is, for him to come off was something significant. Hopefully, his recovery doesn’t take too long.

“Yosuke is not great. I think I said after the game it didn’t look too serious but it’s still pretty painful now.

“I was optimistic it wouldn’t be too bad, but as everyone saw in the footage it was a tackle that shouldn’t have happened and should have been addressed on the day.

“It was a terrible tackle and one he hasn’t come of too well and will be missing for a little bit as well.

“The pitch wasn’t great in the last round against Alloa and they’re the type of things you want to avoid. The fact we’re at home in front of our supporters and on our pitch, I think is a good advantage.”

On the plus side, the team put in a strong performance on Saturday, led by Giorgos Giakoumakis, who scored his second goal for the green and white Hoops.

“It was good for him and more important it was good to get 90 minutes,” he said. “He’s had an interrupted first half of the year but he’s worked awfully hard.

“We gave most of the guys a week off in between games but he stayed at Lennoxtown with a few other boys and put in the work.

“He got through the 90 minutes pretty strong and scored his goal, so it’s a good foundation for him.”

Everton senior board members fume as Farhad Moshiri talks with Vitor Pereira in Monaco

According to the Daily Star, senior Everton officials are furious with Farhad Moshiri over his weekend meetings with Vitor Pereira.

Moshiri met with the contender for talks in Monaco, according to the newspaper’s print copy (25/01).

Given how disastrous the move to appoint Rafa Benitez was, board members at Goodison Park are thought to have strong opposition.

“Board and on the senior executive, especially given the disastrous appointment of Rafa Benitez,” the piece concluded.

Moshiri appeared to be going in headfirst and making the decision without engaging anyone.

This just goes to show that, while he may be a terrific businessman, his football brain is still lagging behind and causing serious problems at Goodison Park.

The owner is in desperate need of advice because some of his recent actions have been comical.

The fans are grateful to those senior board members who opted to stand up and be counted on this occasion, preventing a catastrophe.

Pereira may have won awards during his career, but he did so in nations like China, Greece, and Portugal, where it is expected.

Hopefully, Moshiri will listen to his board members more often, and they will assist him in making the best decision possible to move the Toffees ahead rather than backward.

Newcastle table £10m loan offer, player out of contract in the summer

Newcastle table £10m loan offer, player out of contract in the summer

Newcastle have reportedly made a £10 million loan approach for Jesse Lingard in the final days of the January transfer window, according to 90Min. According to the report, despite the fact that conversations have lasted a month, they ‘anticipate’ this offer to be ‘accepted.’

Lingard, who is 29 years old, has only started two of his 14 league and cup games this season. That’s following a brilliant loan spell with West Ham last season, in which he netted nine goals and contributed five assists in 16 appearances. In June, his contract will expire.

Newcastle, as well as West Ham and Tottenham, have been heavily connected with Lingard. However, according to the source, Newcastle has offered United a £10 million loan fee for Lingard after extensive discussions.

Unless he accepts a new Old Trafford contract, such a deal would likely put an end to his United career. It’s unknown whether Lingard wants to transfer, but it’s been said that Newcastle would have to pay him twice as much as he is now.

Lingard still needs to be persuaded. Newcastle triumphed over the weekend, which is crucial not only in terms of staying up but also in terms of attracting players this month. It provides those who are being hunted a better chance of surviving.

Lingard possesses the ability to increase Newcastle’s hopes of remaining in the Premier League significantly. If he joins on loan, Newcastle will have six months to persuade him to sign a permanent contract – and it could work out.
