The Hammers are sorely missing the attacking talents of their injured stars Dimitri Payet, Diafra Sakho, Manuel Lanzini and Victor Moses in front of goal. Yet Bilic, who has ordered the club to move training grounds in a bid to halt their injury jinx, would have seen his side pick up a first win in six matches had Mauro Zarate’s 80th-minute shot not cannoned back off a post. A draw was a fair result, though, as Stoke were also denied by the woodwork when Marko Arnautovic hit the crossbar midway through the second half. “I’m pleased on one hand, considering we are missing key offensive players, with the way we played,” said Upton Park boss Bilic. “If you ask me before the game if I’m happy to take a point, then no. But considering the way the boys played, I can’t be unhappy. I couldn’t ask for more.” Stoke should have taken an early lead but Marco van Ginkel scuffed a sitter wide from in front of goal. As well as the woodwork, both goalkeepers were kept busy with Jack Butland making fine saves from Cheikhou Kouyate’s long-range effort and Andy Carroll’s header, while Adrian twice denied Stoke sub Meme Biram Diouf with his legs. And in stoppage time a frantic goalmouth scramble saw Kouyate’s header cleared from underneath the bar by former West Ham defender Glen Johnson. “It was a very entertaining game, full of energy, high tempo with both teams defending well,” added Bilic. “It should have been 1-1 or 2-2. With a bit of luck we could have one, but so could they. “They also wanted to win. The game deserved goals.” Slaven Bilic declared himself satisfied after his patched-up side battled to a goalless draw against Stoke. The Hammers are now without a win in six matches while Stoke, fresh from last weekend’s victory over Manchester City, have lost just one in six. “It was a close game,” said Potters manager Mark Hughes. “For a 0-0 it had plenty of incident. Someone told me there were 30-odd attempts on goal from each side. “West Ham were a bit more direct because of all their injuries and we stood up to that. “West Ham did a good job, they knew what we did last week and they weren’t gong to allow that to happen at home. “It was a decent game to be involved in and we’ll look back at it at the end of the season and say it was a decent point.” Press Association
Those tweets prompted Iranian MP Abolfazl Abutorabi to reportedly threaten to attack the White House. While responding to a question about how Iran should or could react to the death of Soleimani, he stated, “We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil. We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time.” President Trump is wrapping up a 17-day holiday at Mar-a-Lago.Mr. Trump, along with First Lady Melania and their 13-year-old son, Barron, are scheduled to leave the estate and head to Palm Beach International Airport late Sunday afternoon.The commander-in-chief has Iran on his mind as the time nears to return to Washington, D.C.Early Sunday, he tweeted in response to Iran’s threats to attack American assets and allies in retaliation for last week’s killing of Irani General Qassem Soleimani:The United States just spent Two Trillion Dollars on Military Equipment.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Just a week after police smashed four major extortion and usury rackets in Thessaloniki, the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) has indicated that it is on the verge of cracking similar rings in Attica and the central port of Volos. According to a source at SDOE, the new rings are smaller than the ones that have been operating in the northern port city, but they are believed to be growing rapidly. The same source advised that an increasing number of entrepreneurs are turning to such rackets for financial aid as banks are unable to give them loans amid tightening liquidity. The practice of extortion rings buying winning lottery tickets en masse as a way of laundering their profits is also gaining ground, the source said. Meanwhile, Finance Ministry inspectors have been instructed to start pursuing some 14.8 billion euros in unpaid taxes owed to the state by 4,151 individuals. The order came a few hours after the ministry published a list of the individuals, who include several household names, in a bid to shame them into paying up. The list includes veteran singer Tolis Voskopoulos, who owes just over half a million euros, and disgraced business tycoon Giorgos Koskotas, who owes 2.4 million euros (his brother, Stavros, owes about the same). Giorgos Batatoudis, the former president of Thessaloniki soccer club PAOK, is also on the list with tax debts of 2.5 million euros, as is Pavlos Psomiadis, the owner of defunct insurance firm Aspis, with debts of 1.5 million euros. Topping the list though is Nikos Kassimatis, a Thessaloniki accountant with a tax debt of 952 million euros who is currently serving a 504-year prison sentence for running a value-added tax scam. Last September, the ministry published a similar list of 6,000 companies with a collective tax debt of 30 billion euros. That list was topped by the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE), which owes 1.26 billion euros in unpaid taxes, and included 13 professional soccer clubs. It remains unclear how much of the 30 billion euros has been recouped. Source: Kathimerini
