Ugly win for Man United, uglier loss for West Ham in EPL

first_imgSea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City A Pitch invader is seized by security staff during the English Premier League soccer match between Burnley and West Ham at the Olympic London Stadium in London, Saturday, March 10, 2018. (Daniel Hambury/PA via AP)MANCHESTER, England — An ugly win for Manchester United. An even uglier loss for West Ham.United scored twice through Marcus Rashford in the opening 24 minutes then produced a gritty, ultra-defensive display to grind out a 2-1 win over fierce rival Liverpool and strengthen second place in the Premier League.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew West Brom manager Alan Pardew will hold talks with the club’s owners after a seventh straight loss in all competitions left the team destined for the second tier.“They might think a change is a better thing for the club, I don’t know,” said Pardew.West Brom took the lead through Salomon Rondon. Jamie Vardy equalized before Leicester scored second-half goals through Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho and Vicente Iborra.It is West Brom’s worst run of results in 15 years.___FEARS EASEDEverton and Newcastle eased their relegation concerns with convincing wins.Wayne Rooney’s missed penalty had little effect as Everton was already 2-0 ahead against 10-man Brighton and on its way to a third straight home win to climb to ninth place.Newcastle won 3-0 at home to Southampton, with on-loan Brazilian Kenedy scoring twice, to move five points clear of the bottom three.Swansea played with just 10 men from the 11th minute to draw 0-0 at Huddersfield. Both teams are four points above the relegation zone.

Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Woods closes to within 1 shot of Canadian rookie Conners View comments Liverpool’s players failed to recover from a first half where they were bullied by United and failed to deal with the hosts’ direct and aggressive approach.The source of both goals was long clearances by United goalkeeper David De Gea to Romelu Lukaku, whose power and athleticism was too much for marker Dejan Lovren.Lukaku’s flick-on was seized by Rashford, who drove in the first goal in the 14th minute. Then Lovren fell to the ground in an aerial challenge with Lukaku, whose pass into the area was intercepted only for Rashford to sidefoot home the loose ball.United packed its defense, with wingers Juan Mata and Rashford playing as auxiliary full backs and central midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay patrolling in front of the defense. Liverpool’s top scorer Mohamed Salah had a quiet day, and was thrown to the ground by Chris Smalling at one point.Liverpool dominated possession but could only muster one goal, a spectacular miscued volley by United defender Eric Bailly into his own net in the 66th.United moved five points clear of third-place Liverpool and stayed nine points ahead of Chelsea.___WARM-UP FOR BARCACriticized for walking around at times in last weekend’s loss at Man City, Chelsea’s players were enjoying a stroll against Crystal Palace — until the final 10 minutes.Chelsea was 2-0 up after 32 minutes after a strike by in-form winger Willian and an own-goal by Martin Kelly. “I’m a human being. I know I’m out on the pitch, under scrutiny, but if someone approaches me I will protect myself.”West Ham stayed just above the relegation zone with its latest heavy defeat — a week after losing 4-1 at fellow relegation rival Swansea — but its Premier League plight is nothing compared to West Bromwich Albion’s.A 4-1 home loss to Leicester left West Brom in last place on 20 points, seven from safety with eight games left.___LIVERPOOL BULLIEDADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Palace fought back late on and, after Alexander Sorloth had a goal disallowed, Patrick van Aanholt scored in the 90th to ensure a nervy finish.___WEST HAM DISORDEROne of the more bizarre scenes during a chaotic second half at the Olympic Stadium was the sight of a man running toward the center circle while holding aloft a corner flag.More worrying was Noble, clearly enraged, grappling with another pitch invader with no stewards anywhere in range.It was a return of the crowd disorder that marked the team’s first few weeks in the stadium, where it moved in the summer of 2016 on a rented basis after leaving its Upton Park home of 112 years.West Ham has called an emergency meeting and said it was “committed to taking decisive and appropriate action” after launching a “full and thorough investigation” into the disorder.The problems started after Ashley Barnes gave Burnley the lead in the 66th minute. Chris Wood added two further goals as West Ham collapsed to be only three points above the relegation zone with eight games left.___PARDEW ON BRINKlast_img read more

Cantona rivals Hodgson and Pele in the nutty stakes

first_img1 Eric Cantona says Javier Pastore is the best player in the world “For me, the best player in the world is Javier Pastore.”Not words we expected to hear from Eric Cantona when asked for his opinion on the planet’s premier footballer, but that’s exactly what he said.Then again he has always been full of surprises.REVEALED! THE INSIDE STORY BEHIND ERIC CANTONA AND ONE OF MAN UNITED’S MOST FAMOUS MOMENTSExpanding on why he rates the PSG attacker so highly, former Man United and France forward Cantona said Pastore is full of surprises, something he loves in players. “I watched two PSG games just to see him play. For me, he is the most creative player at the moment.”However, he’s not the only person to have surprised us with their odd choices, selections or statements. How does Cantona’s claim compare to these?Javier Mascherano should win the Ballon d’OrThe world (Twitter) laughed at England manager Roy Hodgson when he voted for Argentina’s midfield general, Javier Mascherano as his pick for the 2014 Ballon d’Or award. There was no room for the eventual winner Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi in Roy’s top three, with Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer making up second and third place on Hodgson’s list. It was an odd choice, but then everyone is entitled to their opinion.El Hadji Diouf is among the 100 greatest playersIn 2004 Pele was asked by FIFA to pick 100 of the greatest living footballers to mark the governing body’s centenary. Pele, though, is someone who goes out of his way not to offend people (apart from Diego Maradona), as do FIFA (sort of) which explains why Diouf, Javier Saviola and Emre Belozoglu made the list, which actually ended up being the top 125 because the Brazil great could not settle on 100. Well, to start with, remove Diouf, Belozoglu and Saviola. Incidentally, Tostao, Gerson and Jairzinho were all omitted.“Who needs Zidane when we’ve got Tim Sherwood?”There is a well-told story involving the late Jack Walker, Blackburn’s former chairman who funded the spending spree that eventually led them to become Premier League champions and Zinedine Zidane. When quizzed on the possibility of buying the promising Bordeaux ace, Walker asked why they needed him “When we have Tim Sherwood”. The Aston Villa manager was hot property back then having captained the 1995 title winners and in an interview admitted that Zidane and his French team-mate Christophe Dugarry visited Blackburn’s training facility, though he joked in the Independent interview that “Jack did like a drink”.last_img read more

CATHAL MacSUIBHNE: SKY MONEY SHOULD GO TO SUPPORT CLUBS, BUT GAA DID DEAL FOR WRONG REASONS

first_imgYou’ll need one of these to see 14 GAA gamesBY DONEGAL DAILY ANALYST CATHAL MacSUIBHNE: The GAA and Sky: Sell Out or Good for our Games?On page 180 of the GAA’s Constitution, the following statement defines the lowest outlet of the association, oft described as its most important facet and indeed its bedrock, “The Club is amateur and non-profit making in status. Any surplus income or gains shall be reinvested in the Club, and there shall not be any distribution of Club assets, in cash or in kind, to members or third parties.”Fair enough. Working from the lowest level up then surely the entire association is amateur and non-profit making? If this is the case, then the new television deal with multi-national broadcasting giant Sky is a hugely positive development for the GAA. It will mean more revenue, more exposure, more promotion and going by the constitution it will mean more money for your local club. Or will it?There’s been plenty of debate on the subject over recent days and until we start seeing games during the summer and until we see the GAA’s balance sheet we won’t know for sure the impact of the deal.Of course the GAA has received large sums of revenue from its previous and existing broadcast rights holders but why threaten to upset the grassroots of the association for the same level of finance as has been there already?With this in mind, it can be assumed that the Sky deal surely trumps the previous TV3 one vastly, otherwise why bother? Personally from the actual broadcasting perspective I’m looking forward to seeing what Sky has to offer.The professionalism, style and ingenuity they bring to sports coverage is to be admired although putting a Pat Spillane-esque figure in front of a ‘SkyPad’ like Jamie Redknapp or Will Greenwood might be a step too far for the moment.At the minute RTE, TG4, Setanta and BBC provide excellent coverage on our games but Sky will surely raise the bar and bring even more to the analytical side of matches.We’ll also have new presenters, new pundits, new studio layout and new features with which to watch our coverage.Also, they might be able to add something different to the GAA’s idea of half-time entertainment; at times it can be cringe-worthy, with last year’s unveiling of the new GAA mascot (an Irish Terrier named Fionn, just in case you didn’t know) at Croke Park during the All-Ireland Semi-Final a classic example. Us Ulster Gaels might even be spared the predictable criticism that comes the way of our footballers whenever Pat and Colm are on the airwaves – we might get something new instead of the usual ‘typical Ulster defensive’ football regardless of score line or the quality of fayre on offer or the ‘playing football the way it should be played’ guff when any of the traditional aristocrats are in action.So this is all well and good if you happen to be a Sky Sports subscriber or if you don’t mind paying to get the extra matches.But for many people this may not be an option.A Sky Sports package will set you back something like €50 per month depending on what package you choose and with only three to four exclusive games to be shown a month that’s a lot of money per game. The GAA’s main argument in defending their decision to effectively choose Sky Sports over TV3 is that it will widen their audience abroad and make it easier for the Irish overseas to see their national games – for me this just doesn’t wash.As part of the latest round of TV deals, all matches that are televised this side of the world are shown free to air in Australia, by an Australian company. So Gaels at home have to pay for around 1/5 of live games every year while anyone living Down Under gets the lot for free.Matches will also be widely available in the US while for the past four years UK firm, Premier Sports, offered matches to ex-pats in Britain for a set monthly fee of £9.99 (a lot cheaper than a Sky package).So the only change there is that Sky will cost more for those living in the UK. The GAA also announced that RTE will provide an enhanced digital online service allowing those abroad to see more games via their website – why then the need for Sky?The obvious reasoning is that this deal is about money; nothing wrong with that except for the fact that we saw earlier that the GAA are not a profit-making organisation, at least they’re not meant to be.Approximately 80% of income is said to be put back into clubs and counties around the country – if this continues then its boom-time for clubs but as Manus Boyle said last week, he doesn’t recall any entry in the Killybegs’ club accounts stating a figure received from Croke Park; I’d say he’s not the only one.Generally clubs only receive money from Croke Park if they are building facilities or upgrading grounds – why not give every club in Ireland a set amount on the back of the investment coming from Sky?While it is great that clubs can get access to funds for capital projects, many rely on lotto income, membership receipts and small-scale fundraising just to stay afloat – why can’t they receive some money even if it is not going to be spent on a big capital undertaking? They could treat their members to playing gear, a trip away, clear some debt or do whatever they see fit.Taking all the viewpoints into consideration, the Sky deal shouldn’t be that much of a change for Gaels up and down the country, or around the world. Many other supposed apocalyptic changes have taken place within the organisation such as the removal of ‘The Ban’ or the opening up of Croke Park and we still have the GAA as strong as ever, if not stronger.However, deep down I think a lot of Gaels feel an uneasiness about the Sky deal; there are plenty of plus points and what is not in question is that the GAA has never been better run and its leadership is first class. All in all though the gut feeling is, this deal has been struck for the wrong reasons.CATHAL MacSUIBHNE: SKY MONEY SHOULD GO TO SUPPORT CLUBS, BUT GAA DID DEAL FOR WRONG REASONS was last modified: April 8th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cathal MacSuibhneGAASky deallast_img read more

Gritters to be sent out as frost forecast

first_imgDonegal County Council gritters will be on selected routes from 8 tonight as Met Éireann forecast frosty conditions.The regional forecast suggests that temperatures will dip to between 1 and 3 degrees with a risk of frost and icy patches. Fresh southerly winds will ease and veer southwest tonight, with scattered showers following later in the night.Donegal County Council’s gritting routes for this evening (Friday, 16th Feb 2018). Sourced via Twitter @RoadsDCCTomorrow will be cold, dry and bright in most areas, but it will become slightly cloudier in the afternoon with highest temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees in light to moderate mainly southwest winds. Tomorrow night will be a little warmer, with minimum temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees. It will be cloudy and damp, with mist and fog expected to form.Gritters struggled last night as the rain washed much of the salt off of the roads, leading to the same routes being treated twice. The gritters were sent out again at 6 this morning as black ice covered many roads across the county. Treacherous roads were reported in Letterkenny and the surrounding areas this morning, with a lorry getting stuck on a hill in Glenmaquin for almost three hours.For more information on gritting routes, you can visit Donegal County Council’s interactive map by clicking here.Gritters to be sent out as frost forecast was last modified: February 16th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County Councilgrittersweatherlast_img read more
