EPL: Sterling strikes again as City destroy Villa

first_imgRelatedPosts Gundogan tests positive for coronavirus Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says A clinical second-half performance from Manchester City helped the Premier League champions to a 3-0 win over Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.Raheem Sterling continued his fine run of form, scoring 20 seconds after half time before David Silva and Ilkay Gundogan made sure of three points late on.The result means Man City close the gap on leaders Liverpool to three points, with Jurgen Klopp’s side facing Tottenham on Sunday.Gabriel Jesus, chosen ahead of Sergio Aguero, wasted a golden opportunity after just five minutes to give Pep Guardiola’s side the lead.David Silva was involved in the build-up as he found Gundogan and when his shot deflected into the path of Jesus, the Brazilian fired a snapshot wide from seven yards.City began to dominate the ball but struggled to find a way through, being limited to a long-range effort from Joao Cancelo which was held well by Tom Heaton.Minutes later, Villa could have gone ahead. A mistake from John Stones allowed John McGinn in on goal and his curled effort was tipped out by Ederson. On the rebound, ex-City youngster Douglas Luiz followed up but his compatriot pulled off a fine save.The champions went close just before half time as Gundogan and Raheem Sterling combined down the left and the latter found Silva, who looked certain to find the net only to drag his shot wide.After holding firm for the majority of the first half, Villa were undone within 20 seconds of the restart. Tyrone Mings failed to deal with a long ball forward from Ederson and Sterling pounced on the loose ball before slotting underneath Heaton.That seemed to open the floodgates as De Bruyne’s wicked cross into the box caused havoc and Silva’s slight touch put it beyond Heaton to double the lead.Just five minutes later, it was three. Villa failed to clear Fernandinho’s cross and when it came out to Gundogan, he struck it first time with superb technique to kill off any threat of a comeback.However, Fernandinho was then sent off late on to add to City’s defensive problems, picking up a needless second yellow card with just three minutes left.Tags: Aston VillaGabirel JesusIlkay GundoganManchester CityRaheem SterlingSergio Aguerolast_img read more

Marseille deny Barton deal claims

first_img Barton, currently on loan at the French club from relegation-threatened QPR, tweeted that he would not be returning to Loftus Road next season. “Some strange people think that I’ll be playing in the Championship next season?? Good one! QPR might, I won’t! #fact,” he wrote. “It’s not up to QPR if I stay. Agreement already in place for me to stay here. Can’t see QPR wanting me on the wage bill in the Champ.” Press Association Joey Barton’s claims that a deal is in place for him to stay at Marseille have been denied by the club’s president Vincent Labrune.center_img Barton said that Marseille are now in his blood and Labrune confirmed the club would be interested in keeping the fiesty midfielder but nothing is in place. Laubrune was quoted on eurosport.fr as saying: “We would not be against the idea of keeping Joey Barton at OM but he belongs to QPR. There is no agreement as suggested by Joey Barton.” QPR chairman Tony Fernandes posted a pointed tweet which appears to be a response to Barton’s claim that it is not up to the club whether he stays. “For the record QPR players under contract cannot decide where they play. They are under CONTRACT,” Fernandes wrote. Barton joined Marseille in August while he was serving a 12-match ban incurred during the last game of the 2011/12 season against Manchester City. Over a series of tweets, Barton expressed his hope that QPR stay up, made a pointed jibe at former manager Mark Hughes and confirmed his commitment to Marseille. He wrote: “My QPR career was over when they decided to listen to the footballing sage, Mark of Hughes…I’m loving life in France. Loving Marseille. They love me. All I want to do is give everything for this football club. “They backed me when nobody else did, for that I will be eternally grateful. This club is now in my blood, its impossible to get it out (sic) #ForzaOM. I really hope they (QPR) stay up. I have all season. Stay up/go down. Harry stays/goes. I don’t want to be part of it. Marseille is my home now.” last_img read more

Eaves eager for Camp Randall hockey

first_imgWisconsin hockey coaches Mike Eaves and Tracey DeKeyser were the first skaters to test the ice Monday at Camp Randall Stadium.[/media-credit]Talk to anyone within the Wisconsin Hockey community, and you will no doubt feel a sense of anticipation for this Saturday’s Culver’s Camp Randall Hockey Classic.Men’s coach Mike Eaves is certainly feeling the excitement.“There is no other feeling like [hearing] the sound the puck makes when it leaves your stick or the sound that your skate makes when it cuts on outdoor ice,” Eaves said.The Badgers have not played an outdoor game since 2006, when they defeated Ohio State 4-2 at Lambeau Field.While one might be tempted to think his players might get caught up in the hype and emotions surrounding the game, Eaves believes his team will not need any extra motivation to play at a high level.“I think that will take care of itself, based on the experience we had [at Lambeau],” Eaves said. “You could see it in the kids’ eyes,” Eaves said. “They were going to play at a high level because they were so excited.”With such a high energy level in play, Eaves hopes his current team can duplicate the success the 2006 team enjoyed.“If we didn’t have this game, we would have this week off,” Eaves said. “This is kind of an energizer, and we look at it as such.”Challenges of Outdoor HockeyDespite the buildup for the game, an outdoor environment may present problems players and coaches would otherwise never encounter.Among these potential challenges is the condition of the ice itself.“Outdoor ice one day could be different than outdoor ice the next day,” Eaves said. “It’s very sensitive to a lot of different things.”One of Eaves’ chief concerns regarding the outdoor ice is its smoothness, which presented a minor problem at Lambeau four years ago.“[The] challenge for the icemakers is to keep it so it doesn’t get chippy, that you just get the snow that comes on top,” Eaves said.Perhaps even more important is the change in environment for the players, most of whom have never played a collegiate game outdoors.Eaves specifically mentioned the difficulties that will be faced by whoever plays goaltender for the Badgers.Due to the different environment, it will be more difficult for the goaltenders to see the puck off the opponents’ sticks.“One of the things that is going to be a challenge for us is to get our goalies out there and see pucks at night, under the lights with the background,” Eaves said. “I think we have to be very cognizant of that.”Thus far, Wisconsin has rotated two starting goalies, juniors Scott Gudmandson and Brett Bennett.Eaves confirmed he and his coaching staff have no plans to change this rotation, nor have they chosen a starter for this Saturday.“We’re still a two-goalie team,” Eaves said. “We’ll go into this week and practice and see how the guys perform, and then based on that, as we always do, we’ll make a choice for this weekend.”Improving Down the StretchThe Badgers are looking to rebound from a 4-0 loss at Minnesota-Duluth last Saturday.“This past weekend, I don’t think we executed as well as we could have,” Eaves said.Specifically, Eaves addressed the necessity for his team to play a cleaner game.The Badgers recorded 13 penalties for 29 minutes in the loss.“We weren’t able to use one of our strengths, which is our depth, because we kept finding ourselves going to the penalty box,” Eaves said. “We can’t be doing that.”Despite the loss, Eaves is optimistic about his team’s chances on Saturday and also for the remainder of the season.He hopes this Saturday’s contest can provide a spark to propel the Badgers through their last eight regular season gamesA similar effect was noticeable when the Badgers last played an outdoor game during the 2006 championship season.“Everybody is excited,” Eaves said. “Hopefully we can take that energy down the back stretch.”last_img read more

Sports shatters the barrier between politics and ordinary life

first_imgNot a single meaningful sporting event has taken place in the United States since March (sorry UFC fans, but I’m going to have to exclude you here). Pitches haven’t been thrown, shots haven’t been blocked and games haven’t been played in more than four months, and yet, the past couple of weeks have been host to the most significant sports developments I’ve ever witnessed.  These events represent only a fraction of what has taken place in recent weeks. In addition to the upheaval within the college ranks, change and resistance have consumed professional sports. Less than two weeks ago, NASCAR banned the display of the Confederate flag at races — and the FBI is now investigating a noose found in Black driver Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Superspeedway. On June 12, Kyrie Irving and other notable players injected doubt into the prospects of the NBA season restarting by voicing their fears that a season resumption might distract from ongoing civil rights efforts. To top it off, it looks like baseball as we know it might be over because greedy owners and greedy players refuse to prioritize the fate of the game over their checkbooks.  Almost two months ago, after the Daily Trojan wrapped up production for the spring semester, I thought I had written the final installment of “The State of Play.” Weeks later, when I agreed to give the column another go for the summer, I was excited but also deeply worried — American life had still not resumed since the coronavirus outbreak, and not a single significant sporting event was scheduled for months.  As a result, I was convinced that within weeks, I would find myself staring at a blank Google doc for the 10th straight hour, eyes bloodshot, desperately clawing at any sporting development that remotely resembled a workable topic for the column.  Since my last column alone, tweets from college football players have forced an apology from a Power-Five coach who exaggerated his outreach to his team, gotten one assistant suspended, opened an investigation into the highest-paid strength and conditioning coach in the country and caused programwide reckonings throughout the NCAA. In the same vein, athletes at USC have organized to combat racial inequity and football players at UCLA have united to demand third-party health assistance in light of what they describe as UCLA’s perpetual failures and negligence.  What’s more is that these shouldn’t even be political issues. Athletes shouldn’t have to watch the confederate flag — a symbol of racism, oppression and treason — be paraded around sporting events like it’s a goddamn pony. Black college athletes shouldn’t be forced to put their lives and the lives of their loved ones on the line for free while their predominantly white coaches and college administrators rake in seven-figure salaries for sitting on their asses.  The option of being apolitical no longer exists. The Karens and Joe Sixpacks of the world can no longer absolve themselves of moral responsibility simply by saying “I don’t want to talk about politics.” So, a lot is going on, but what the fuck does it all mean?  Well, it means a lot. You don’t need a fancy, criminally overpriced USC degree to know that. But, if this is going to be the very last installment of “The State of Play,” I’d like to drive one point home as hard as I can: The barrier between politics and ordinary American life is completely shattered. It’s gone, and there is no place where this is more evident than sports.  Stuart Carson is a rising senior writing about the intersection of sports, politics and American society. His column, “The State of Play,” ran every other Wednesday.center_img Today, however, what I’m trying to communicate is not only that they intersect, but also that the intersection is illustrative of the unavoidable nature of politics in modern American life.  I was very, very wrong.  Look, I understand that position. In fact, I sympathize with some elements of it. But in the world we live in today, no aspect of American life — especially sports — can be removed from our present-day politics.  Today, if you want to talk about sports or even have a remotely thoughtful opinion about the state of sports, you’re going to have to know a thing or two about political and social issues. If you want to talk about the prospects of sports returning, you’re going to have to talk about the prospects of our dumbass-in-chief getting his shit together. If you want to talk about college football, you’re going to have to talk about the fact that last season’s College Football Playoff champion and runner-up currently share at least 53 cases of coronavirus infection between the two rosters. To ignore these realities would be like talking about ’90s baseball without bringing up steroids or talking about my column without mentioning the appalling amount of literary incompetence that it contains on a biweekly basis.  For most of my memorable sports fandom, there’s been a tension between the worlds of sports and politics. Broadly speaking, a large and often loud faction of sports fans has repeatedly expressed reluctance to discuss the two topics in the same breath. To do so, in their mind, would be to contaminate one of the great escapes available to Americans. In other words, sometimes work sucks, family sucks, presidents suck and life sucks, but sports is always fucking awesome — an unadulterated world of pure action and entertainment, devoid of life’s politics and other annoyances.  To put it plainly, an absolute shit-ton of stuff is happening and happening fast. It feels nearly impossible to keep up with daily sports developments. Given the sheer volume of it all, deriving a single succinct, packaged message is nearly impossible. These issues are not about politics. They are about human rights, respect and dignity. For sports fans, that reality — and their participation in it — is now inescapable. For almost half a year, I’ve ranted on this column about how sports, politics and American society intersect. Now, I think that much is painfully and obviously clear. last_img read more

Repeat Performance! Accuscore seeks to out forecast Goldman Sachs at Russia 2018

Both have a lot to prove after the last World Cup and at the moment Argentina is just a slighly better option. The Germans, of course, have their say and will be right up there to challenge Argentina on the way. This time around it is the Argentinians who prevail and then it’s a complete coin toss against Brazil in the final.” Accuscore details in its Russia 2018 forecastAccuscore’s Russia 2018 models have been backed by CEO & Founder Tuomas Kanervala, who points to the firm’s winning performance during Brazil 2014, in which Accuscore outperformed Goldman Sachs in picking group qualifiers (Accuscore 10 – Goldman 9) and the eventual winner Germany.” We are very happy to work with many leading media houses and betting operators to provide their customers with additional info for the biggest sport event of the year. Even though the marketplace is crowded with all kind of predictions, we are confident that our good track record from last World Cup as well as high prediction accuracy of domestic football leagues during past seasons continues to the World Cup.”last_img read more

Dodgers re-sign second baseman Howie Kendrick to 2-year deal

first_imgKendrick started all five of the Dodgers’ postseason games against the New York Mets. He had six hits in 22 plate appearances, including a double and a home run.The Dodgers re-signed veteran Chase Utley to a one-year, $7 million contract in December. Utley is primarily a second baseman, but he’s been working out at third base and first base as well.The 37-year-old Utley and Kiké Hernandez, 24, stood to split time at second base if the Dodgers didn’t bring back Kendrick. The Dodgers also acquired 25-year-old Micah Johnson, a left-handed hitting second baseman, from the Chicago White Sox in the trade that sent Jose Peraza and Scott Schebler to the Cincinnati Reds.Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw inadvertently broke the news Friday.Speaking at a team function at Los Angeles City Hall, Kershaw said of the team’s position players, “obviously Howie’s still in the mix. Other than Jimmy (Rollins), I feel like we have our team back.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Kendrick batted second, third and fourth almost equally last year under manager Don Mattingly. He formed instant chemistry with Rollins in the field, but will likely have a rookie double-play partner come Opening Day in 21-year-old Corey Seager.Kendrick rejected the Dodgers’ $15.8 million qualifying offer after last season, making him a free agent. Had he signed elsewhere, the Dodgers would have gained a 2016 draft pick after the first round as compensation, while the team that signed Kendrick would have surrendered its first-round pick unless it was slated to draft in the top 10.The relative value of draft picks likely diminished Kendrick’s market — and ultimately benefited the Dodgers.In 10 major league seasons, the first nine with the Angels, Kendrick has a .293 batting average, .333 on-base percentage and .423 slugging percentage.“He’s a heck of a ballplayer,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “He enjoyed his time here last year. I’ve seen him from the other side, always admired the way he plays the game.”center_img The Dodgers have re-signed Howie Kendrick to a two-year contract, solving their cluttered second-base picture with a familiar face.The team hasn’t confirmed the announcement because the contract is pending a physical.According to multiple reports, the contract will pay $20 million. Kendrick, who turns 33 in July, appeared in 117 games last season, his fewest this decade, by virtue of a hamstring injury in August. He batted .295 to go with nine home runs and 54 RBIs.last_img read more

Dodgers add outfielder Will Venable

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error A career .251 hitter with 81 home runs, Venable’s best season came in 2013 when he batted .268 with 22 home runs in 151 games for the Padres. He realizes his role will be much different with the Dodgers.“I like to think I’m a guy that whatever’s asked of me I get the job done and help the team win; whether that’s running the bases well, playing good defense, putting a tough at-bat out there,” he said. “I’m just here to be in a support role in whatever way they need.”Low flow There was more than one new look in the Dodgers clubhouse Tuesday. Hernandez showed up having shorn his long hair down to the scalp. The change was drastic enough that Hernandez had to get a new hat for the game.Hernandez joked that he couldn’t have “show hair” while batting .204 and was hoping for the “Trayce effect.” Outfielder Trayce Thompson started hitting better after getting a similar makeover in April and has played his way into an every-day role.A productive role player last season, Hernandez hit .307 and was particularly productive against left-handed pitching (.423). He hasn’t been able to reproduce that this season.But Hernandez also had a serious reason for the shaving. He said he did it as a show of support for his father, Enrique Sr., who is undergoing treatment for cancer.Enrique Sr. is an area scout in Puerto Rico for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but has never been to PNC Park. He will be there for the Dodgers’ upcoming series in Pittsburgh. Shortly after that, he is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant in Florida.Puig rehabOutfielder Yasiel Puig had an infield single and a walk in his second rehab game with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Tuesday night. He was thrown out on a steal attempt and played five innings in right field for the second consecutive night. Puig is scheduled to have Wednesday then travel to San Jose with the Quakes for three more games.Puig is tentatively scheduled to rejoin the Dodgers and be activated from the DL on Monday. Roberts said he does not see the need for Puig to move up the ladder and face more advanced pitching at the Double-A or Triple-A levels before being activated.“No. I think for certain people maybe. But in such a short stint,” Roberts said. “It’s more for Yasiel about getting his hamstring right which is the No. 1 component. No. 2, mechanically, where he was at before, he would have a tough time regardless of what level and conversely if it’s mechanically right, he can handle any pitching.”Puig is batting .237 for the Dodgers this season. In his last 43 games before going on the DL, though, he was 29 for 149 (.195) with a .221 on-base percentage and .516 OPS. PHOENIX >> The Dodgers bench got a little more balanced Tuesday with the addition of veteran outfielder Will Venable.The 33-year-old was signed to a contract for the rest of the season and added to the active roster. Austin Barnes was optioned back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.The Dodgers have been carrying 13 pitchers for some time and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated he expects that to continue. The starting pitchers not named Clayton Kershaw have averaged 5 1/3 innings per start this season, a number that is not likely to improve with the Dodgers handling rookie Julio Urias carefully (Roberts indicated his pitch-count limit might be expanded past 90 in his next start on Friday) and Mike Bolsinger not showing an ability to get deep in games. That has left plenty of work for the nine relievers they have been carrying.The extra bullpen help leaves Roberts with just a four-man bench on a nightly basis. Since the Dodgers designated Carl Crawford for assignment 10 days ago, they have not had a left-handed bat in that group (A.J. Ellis, Scott Van Slyke and Kike’ Hernandez with Barnes until now).center_img Venable is a left-handed hitter with a .745 career OPS against right-handed pitching. He can play all three outfield spots.“You look at our roster right now and a left-handed bat for a start in the outfield or off the bench late in the game, I think it was needed,” Roberts said. “I think it was one of those things where we were actively searching internally or outside the organization for someone who could fill that role.”Roberts is familiar with Venable from their days together in San Diego. Venable spent parts of the past eight seasons with the Padres until he was traded to the Texas Rangers last July. He signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Indians in the off-season but was released in spring training and signed a minor-league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. That contract included an opt-out clause which Venable exercised after batting .205 in 41 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.“It all went down pretty quickly,” Venable said. “I was without a job the last few days. I was in my wife’s hometown, sitting around on the couch one day wondering what we were going to do. Then the following day we got the call that there might be an opportunity here. Obviously I was excited about that.“It was weird. I’ve never been sitting at home in the middle of the summer other than the All-Star break. It was a new thing for me. Lucky for me, it didn’t last long and I’m excited to have a jersey on my back.”last_img read more

Dredge owner busted with ganja

first_img…released on $200,000 bailWhen he made his first appearance on Thursday, in Court One before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, Andre Gravesande stood charged with trafficking in narcotics.The charge stated that on December 25, 2017, at the Kingston Seawall in Georgetown, the accused had in his possession some 89.4 grams of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.The accused vehemently denied the allegation, and following a successful bail application by defence Attorney Keisha Persaud, was released on $200,000 bail. According to the defence lawyer, Gravesande is a 24-year-old businessman and owner of a dredge which operates in the Cuyuni-Mazaruni District (Region Seven). The father of two is reported to be the sole breadwinner for his family, and is expecting a third child. He lives with his family in North Ruimveldt, Georgetown.Meanwhile, Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore told the court that on the day in question, Police spotted the defendant with a plastic bag in his hands, displaying an attitude which aroused much suspicion. The Police approached him and conducted a search on his person, leading to the discovery of a quantity of leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis. Gravesande was cautioned and taken into Police custody, where the suspected narcotic was weighed in his presence.Moore did not object to bail being granted, but requested that the accused report on a weekly basis to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Brickdam pending the outcome of his trial. The analyst report is outstanding, and the file stands incomplete.The Chief Magistrate upheld the conditions suggested by the prosecutor, and urged the defendant to attend every court hearing. She also warned him of the consequences of failing to attend court.This case will be called again on January 13, 2017.last_img read more
