Bony limped off in City’s 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw at Aston Villa on Sunday because of a hamstring injury, with Blues boss Manuel Pellegrini saying afterwards he did not think the 26-year-old would be able to play during this international break. And it was subsequently confirmed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) on Wednesday that Bony would not be involved in the Elephants’ clashes with Liberia away on Friday and at home next Tuesday due to injury. That had also been the case on Tuesday, with it being understood the reason was not an injury but because he did a recovery session instead owing to the fact he had played only two days earlier. And Belgium boss Marc Wilmots said on Wednesday that Kompany was one of a group of players who were “following an individual programme of rehabilitation indoors”. He added: “What matters now is the mental and physical regeneration. “It’s important to recover as much as possible for the two (home friendly) games against Italy and Spain (on Friday and Tuesday respectively). That’s why they are rested.” Kompany’s fitness was a hot topic from the last international break, with Pellegrini expressing his unhappiness the defender had played for his country after missing five City games with a calf problem. Kompany played around an hour of Belgium’s 3-1 win over Israel on October 13 – then was an unused substitute for City four days later, and only got on in the dying seconds another four days after that, before being restored to the Blues first XI for the Manchester derby. Wilmots is making no apology for his handling of Kompany and stressed the decision about the run-out against Israel was made jointly by the coach and player. Wilmots said on Wednesday: “I think we did exactly what we had to do. “In this case a player and a manager had a conversation and agreed playing for 60 minutes would be the best preparation. Vincent agreed and we made the decision together. “His situation is that he is a top professional player of 30 years who knows exactly what he needs to do to be fit. I allow him to work how he wants. “Many players come here injured and return healthy and match fit. I don’t think we can do any better.” Another City player who will not feature in those matches is midfielder Yaya Toure – although he has declared he will be “ready” to rejoin the national team next year. Toure, who won the African Nations Cup with Ivory Coast in February, has not been part of the squad of late having wanted a rest, but it seems he is not about to retire from international football. Quoted on the CAF website, he said: “I think the next appointment after this (the Liberia games) will be in 2016 with the continuation of qualifying for the 2017 African Nations Cup. In any case, I’ll be ready.” Regarding his current absence, Toure said: “With all due respect to our new coach, Michel Dussuyer, I wanted to have a moment of respite. “I was coming back from a long period of intense activity with the Elephants and the end of an exhausting season with my club Manchester City. I even had injuries. “During the off-season I cut short my vacation in Abidjan to return to the club so I could be subject to a rigorous fitness programme. “I had to follow to the letter and strictly my physical preparation programme during this period under the supervision of private coaches. ” Meanwhile, City captain Vincent Kompany was once again not involved in full training with Belgium on Wednesday. Press Association Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony has been ruled out of Ivory Coast’s World Cup qualifying double-header against Liberia.

Friday â€œThe Bannedâ€ will be on the main stage in front of Memorial Auditorium at 9 p.m.Then on Saturday, Kinsey Sandler, who is a country rocker from Oklahoma, will take to the downtown Wellington stage at 9 p.m.The Mize concert has been a two-year deal in the making.

Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down Hmmm · 266 weeks ago Can anyone explain to me the need for a button this year? Is this not going to be like all past street dances where you could bring lawn chairs and just sit in the street with your kids to watch the Performer? Is it not going to be kid friendly this year? How is this going to be enforced that the buttons are needed? Does everyone, young and old, need buttons or is there an age limit?

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Sumner County residents can safely call Mize one of their own. Loganâ€™s home is on a river in Peck. His grandfather opened Mizeâ€™s Thrifty, a grocery store in Clearwater.â€œI used to get off work and take the dirt road route to watch the Kansas sunset,â€ Mize said in the 2015 Official Travel Guide. â€œAs much as I love traveling and meeting new people, thereâ€™s definitely a sense of feeling at home.â€The Mize stop in Wellington will be a quick one in Kansas this week. It will be his one and only performance this week in his native state. He will be in Nebraska the next night on a tour that has taken him recently through Rhode Island, Delaware, New York City and Milwaukee.Mize is not quite a headliner in Nashville, but he is very close. â€œCanâ€™t Get Away from a Good Timeâ€ reached the Billboard No. 58 position in 2015. His latest album Pawn Shop Guitar peaked at No. 32.He is most certainly working the stage for Countryâ€™s biggest acts. He has opened for Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Leann Rimes, Eric Church, Diers Bentley, the Charlie Daniels Band, Blake Shelton, Stoney LaRue, Hank Williams and was part of a special tribute with Merle Haggard.He also doubles as a song writer for performers like Bucky Covington.â€œIt has been a lot of work getting where I am now,â€ Mize told Sumner Newscow. â€œI spent the bulk of my 20s driving a van and playing music in any bar I could find.â€Mize signed with Big Yellow Dog Music in April 2009.â€œNashville is a funny place and it most certainly is an interesting industry,â€ Mize said. â€œI stay in the lane and do what I do. If something doesnâ€™t work, Iâ€™ll tweak it a little. But you have to be true to yourself.â€To get into the Mize concert requires a Wheat Festival button. You can purchase one at the door for $10 or $5 if you purchase one at the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce or at an official Kansas Wheat Festival event.Follow us on Twitter.
