11/26 CBS2 Wednesday Morning Weather Headlines

By Giorgio Panetta, CBS 2 Chief Meteorologist/Weather Producer

Good morning Tri-State,

The busiest travel day of the year is is being ruined by a nor’easter with a pretty good punch — especially inland.

If you’re traveling north of NYC — say to Boston — you should be OK if you take off before 9 a.m. Any later, you run the risk of rapidly deteriorating road conditions as temps cool.

Headed south, you might want to consider waiting if it’s not a burden. Any way you cut it, your going to be traveling towards inclement weather — either rain or snow. Dangerous conditions will reveal themselves. I just encourage you all to take safe precautions.

The rain-snow line will hover around NYC all day. The more solidified snow will take place north of I- 287, and real winter wonderland starts North of I-84, or exit 16 on the Thruway.

The good news is it pulls out east earlier than originally thought, so Thanksgiving looks dry! Check back in later for crucial updates.

EU’s Juncker unveils 315 bn euro investment plan

The plan is the cornerstone of European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker's five-year agenda to jumpstart the EU's moribund economyEuropean Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker unveiled Wednesday an eagerly awaited 315-billion-euro ($393-billion) investment plan that aims to boost the continent's flatlining economy. "Europe needs a kickstart and today the Commission is providing the jump cable," former Luxembourg premier Juncker told lawmakers in the European Parliament as he announced the new fund, a cornerstone of his five-year tenure. The new European Fund for Strategic Investment will be funded to the tune of 21 billion euros, but its work will have an net effect on the economy of about 315 billion euros ($390 billion), according to an official estimate. As expected, overall responsiblity for the three-year plan will fall to the European Investment Bank, a little-known EU institution based in Luxembourg that is often criticised for its lack of ambition.


Simon Mignolet Slammed by Bruce Grobbelaar, Brendan Rodgers Hits Back at Critics

Liverpool goalkeeping legend Bruce Grobbelaar has likened Simon Mignolet to Dracula and says the keeper’s lack of dominance is holding the Reds back.

Grobbelaar, who won six First Division titles with the Merseyside club prior to the Premier League era, spoke honestly in an interview with BBC Sport (h/t Joe Ridge of the Mail Online).

The South African didn’t bite his tongue, and instead of focusing on Luis Suarez‘s exit as the reason for Liverpool’s recent slump, he pinpointed the shaky No. 1:

You’ve got to shore up at the back, get yourself someone in goal that can only let in 30 goals a season, or less than 30 goals a season. I’ve always said that. I’ve said that he doesn’t command his area. I have likened him worse than Dracula, because at least Dracula comes out of his coffin now and then. He seems to stay on his line and that’s it.

The 57-year-old continued by suggesting how Mignolet should improve: “That whole area—not the six-yard area, the 18-yard area—is the goalkeeper’s, and in this day and age, in modern goalkeeping, if you come out and catch the ball and you get smacked you are going to get the foul.”

He says, “It’s not rocket science, and he is a big lad.”

Mignolet has often received criticism since moving to Anfield. Despite finishing second last season, Liverpool conceded a hefty 50 goals. Crystal Palace in 11th conceded just 48. While this cannot be solely put down to Mignolet‘s performances, his lack of leadership in the box is becoming more and more apparent with each game.

In October, Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher dissected his style and poor positioning when shots come in from long range, as seen below:

Former Liverpool captain Carragher also showed a lack of support on Twitter:

Only five Premier League teams have conceded more than Liverpool this season, two of which are in the relegation zone. Mignolet continues to struggle from crosses and appears to fold whenever he is put under physical pressure. Karim Benzema‘s goal when Real Madrid visited the club—a tap-in from a corner—was aided by the flappy keeper and his static defence. 

Mignolet‘s recent performance against Crystal Palace summed up his troubles: He punted a simple free-kick out of play and provided Yannick Bolasie with the chance to break free down the flank, before he passed to Joe Ledley, who slipped the ball between the keeper’s legs.

Phil McNulty of BBC Sport compounded Mignolet‘s misery:

Martin Samuel of the Daily Mail believes Liverpool could have kept progressing by replacing Suarez with a world-class striker. He suggests paying big for someone like Benzema or Sergio Aguero—players who regularly win matches on their own—would have been a smarter choice than investing so heavily in many players.

Suarez “was a player, a match-winner, a saver of points, a clincher of victory,” wrote Samuel. “They are a rare breed, and one of them is worth 10 of the others.”

Brendan Rodgers has been forced to deal with plenty of criticism in recent weeks. Liverpool’s confidence is drained and the feel-good factor of last season has disappeared. The Northern Irish manager has hit back at detractors by suggesting criticism is inevitable and that he turns a blind eye to it. 

“The comment that is being made about the team, I’ve learnt that when you lose games people will say what they want. That is what comes,” said Rodgers, reported by David Maddock of the Mirror. “But, whether the criticism is deserved or not, you can’t listen to it.”

Disapproval will only get louder if Liverpool fail to beat Ludogorets on Wednesday night. The Reds could use victory to aid their confidence, but they can still make the Champions League knockout stages if they fail to win and beat Basel during the last round of group fixtures—presuming Basel lose to Madrid.

Victory would set the Reds up well ahead of the weekend fixture with Stoke and a busy winter schedule. Leicester, Sunderland, Manchester United and Arsenal await domestically after this match, a run which Rodgers really needs to grab at least 12 points from if Liverpool are to maintain pace for that all important fourth spot.
