Guidetti makes Stoke loan switch

first_imgManchester City striker John Guidetti has joined Stoke on loan. Press Association City have confirmed the Sweden Under-21 international will spend the rest of the season at the Britannia Stadium. The highly-rated Guidetti, 21, joined City at the age of 16 but his progress at the club has been hampered by illness and injuries. center_img Guidetti has appeared twice on the City bench this season but the club feel he would benefit from having greater opportunities elsewhere. He is behind the likes of Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Negredo, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic at the Etihad Stadium. Guidetti spent time on loan at Burnley just over three years ago and also had a successful spell at Feyenoord in the 2011-12 season. A statement on City’s website confirmed the deal at Stoke would run until June 30. The deal was made possible after Stoke confirmed they had converted midfielder Stephen Ireland’s loan move from Aston Villa into a permanent deal. That freed up another loan space for Guidetti to move to the Britannia Stadium. The Potters have Liverpool’s Oussama Assaidi as their other permitted Premier League loanee. last_img read more

first_img New Delhi: In a major upset at the US Open, Roger Federer was knocked out of the tournament by Gregor Dimitrov in five sets. Dimitrov, the 78th-ranked Bulgarian, stunned world number three Federer 3-6 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2 in their quarterfinal match. Roger Federer was eyeing his 46th Grand Slam semifinal berth. The Swiss was also hoping to become the oldest Slam semifinalist since Jimmy Connors at age 39 at the 1991 US Open.Dimitrov is the lowest-ranked New York semifinalist in 28 years. This is his first win in eight meetings with Federer. Not since 174th-ranked Jimmy Connors reached the 1991 quarter-finals had New York seen so lowly a figure on the ATP ratings list reach the last four. Dimitrov is also the lowest-ranked Slam semi-finalist since 94th-rated Rainer Schuettler of Germany at Wimbledon in 2008.Dimitrov reached his first US Open semi-final to match the deepest Slam runs of his career from Wimbledon in 2014 and the 2017 Australian Open.Federer was denied on five break points in the 10th game of the fourth set and Dimitrov held to force a fifth set.”I’m just happy,” Dimitrov said. “The only thing I was telling myself was to stay in the match. Physically I was feeling pretty good. I was hitting some shots against him that were hard to hit.”Federer went off the court for a private medical timeout to treat his upper back near his neck.”This is Grigor’s moment, not my body’s moment,” Federer said. “It’s OK. It’s how it goes. I tried my best. I fought with what I had and that’s it.” Dimitrov will meet Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in the semifinal.

Dover relishing rematch with Soca Warriors

first_img– GFF still tight-lipped on teamON November 11, 2011 at the Guyana National Stadium, the ‘Golden Jaguars’ roared to a 2 – 1 win over the ‘Soca Warriors’ to end the Twin Island Republic’s 2014 World Cup hopes, and, at the time, created history by reaching, for the first time, the penultimate round of the CONCACAF leg of the qualifiers.Four days later (November 15), Trinidad and Tobago, playing at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain, defeated Guyana 3 – 0, but the damage was already done.The two countries will now meet for the first time in six years on Tuesday, November 14, at the Ato Boldon Stadium, when Trinidad and Tobago play host to Guyana in a match played on a FIFA International date.“This is a game I’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” Head Coach, Wayne Dover told Chronicle Sport in an exclusive interview last evening, adding, “I think if anything else, we want to ensure we come out with a win.”The match on November 14 will be the 21st meeting between the two countries in the sport, with the first being in 1978.The ‘Soca Warriors’ have won 14 of those meetings, while four matches ended in a draw. Guyana’s last victory was on November 11, 2011 and their first was a 4 – 0 win in the Island’s capital.Guyana will also travel to Indonesia on November 25 for an international friendly, but Dover stated that the strongest possible team will be selected for the Trinidad and Tobago encounter, while for the match on the Asian continent, the team will feature predominantly local players.GFF tight-lippedTrinidad and Tobago have already published their squad for the up-coming game against Guyana, but, the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) remains tight-lipped about the composition of Guyana’s team, leaving many pundits and fans upset and wondering why the secrecy.Dover stated that Blackpool’s midfield maestro, Neil Danns, will not be available for both friendlies, but pointed out “what you will see is a very strong team with our best available players for the Trinidad game because that’s a game where we could actually get some points, since it’s an official FIFA date. We have some players training here (in Guyana), but most of those players are really for the Indonesia game since that’s where we want to expose our local bunch.”Veterans, Gregory ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson and Anthony ‘Awo’ Abrams, who both played in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro-League, were named in Dover’s squad for the Friendly International, which should also feature UK-based Chris Bourne and Samuel Cox.“I believe that we owe it to our supporters to assemble the best team for the game against Trinidad. I think people look at what happened on 11.11.11, but much has changed for both countries since then. Right now, we (Guyana football) are going through a rebuilding stage while trying to keep some of the old guards around to help in the process.It’s going to take some time and I believe matches like these will help significantly,” Dover said.While Guyana would’ve dropped significantly since their infamous 11.11.11 victory, Trinidad and Tobago would’ve rebounded to return to their dominant place in the region and CONCACAF, alongside Jamaica.Guyana is ranked 165 in FIFA, dropping nine places in the recent rankings, while the ‘Soca Warriors’ moved 16 places up to 83 and eighth in CONCACAF.While Guyana is coming off an upsetting 1 – 0 loss to Grenada in their last international outing, Trinidad and Tobago is playing for the first time since their historic 2 – 1 win over the United States, causing the ‘Red, White and Blue’ to miss the 2018 Russia World Cup.last_img read more

ENTRENCHED: SU defense swallows up Pittsburgh playmakers in 14-13 win

first_img Published on October 5, 2012 at 10:12 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu The sequence played out repeatedly for more than 34 minutes.Pittsburgh running back Ray Graham danced around before the Syracuse defensive line swallowed him up. His quarterback, Tino Sunseri, dropped back only to have the pocket collapse on him immediately.Each time, the sequence ended with a horde of Orange defenders surrounding the latest playmaker in the backfield, sharing emphatic fist pumps and urging on the crowd.“I felt like the whole D-line was getting into a groove,” SU defensive end Brandon Sharpe said. “The coaches, they did a good job of amping us up on the sidelines so we just went out there and played with our passion and played our game.”Sharpe and his fellow linemen spearheaded a dominant effort by the Syracuse (2-3, 1-0 Big East) defense that sparked the team to a 14-13 victory over Pittsburgh (2-3, 0-2) in front of 40,394 in the Carrier Dome on Friday night. The Orange defensive front held the Panthers to a measly 27 yards on 37 carries, battering Sunseri for five sacks while bottling up Graham in the backfield.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat combination helped SU overcome a nine-minute difference in time of possession and the offense’s failure to score in the final three quarters of the game to earn its first win over a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent since last October.“Everybody in the locker room was hungry to come out and play today,” quarterback Ryan Nassib said. “Offensively we wish we could have done a little bit better, but the defense played like ravaged dogs.”The unit played with that hunger and passion from the start on Friday night.Pittsburgh’s first series ended in a little more than two minutes. The Panthers ran three plays for three yards before punter Matt Yoklic trotted onto the field.Graham took a handoff on the first play, but he was quickly stuffed for no gain by defensive end Markus Pierce-Brewster and a host of other SU defenders. Then Sharpe burst off the edge and into the backfield to pull Sunseri down for a nine-yard loss. The defense and Carrier Dome came to life on third-and-19, and Sunseri dumped it off to Devin Street as Sharpe nearly grabbed him again.“This season we’ve kind of been lacking with the pressure, so that’s what we focused on as a D-line as individuals together even without the coaches,” SU defensive tackle Deon Goggins said. “We talked about that amongst ourselves all week and we made it happen tonight, and we plan to continue it for the rest of the season.”Nearly three minutes after Pittsburgh’s three-and-out, Syracuse executed a near-flawless eight-play, 70-yard drive down the field to move ahead 7-0. But the offensive production disappeared for the remainder of the game, as Nassib and his unit failed to score again in the final 55 minutes of the game.Whether Syracuse won or lost its Big East opener would be up to the defense.The unit rose to the occasion, scoring a touchdown when linebacker Dyshawn Davis scooped up a fumble and returned it 52 yards to push the Orange ahead 14-0 with just more than a minute to play in the first quarter.And Sharpe and his teammates terrorized the Pittsburgh offensive line all night. Sharpe finished with four sacks and six tackles for loss while six other defensive linemen made stops in the game, contributing to holding Graham to 57 yards on 24 carries.“You look at what we did today against this Pittsburgh team and the run game,” head coach Doug Marrone said. “I think that’s difficult to do and our kids were up for that challenge.”The defensive line was up for one more challenge with the game on the line late in the fourth quarter.Sunseri led the Panthers down to the SU 17 yard line with three completions for 54 yards. Pittsburgh was one big play away from jumping ahead and stealing a win from the Orange in the Carrier Dome.But Sharpe and the line came through and thwarted the drive. He and Goggins burst into the backfield and forced Sunseri to heave the ball out of bounds short of the line of scrimmage, leading to a 15-yard intentional grounding penalty.A nine-yard sack by cornerback Brandon Reddish set up third-and-34 on the 41, and an incomplete pass and punt gave SU the ball with its one-point lead still intact.For the final five minutes, the unit could rest as the offense ran out the clock to seal a win defined by its masterful play in the trenches.“We were just in each others’ heads and having each others’ backs out there, and we made it happen,” Goggins said.

Jackson to miss six weeks with fractured foot

first_imgFor the next month-and-a-half the Wisconsin basketball team will be without their starter at arguably the most important position in basketball.It was announced Monday that UW starting senior point guard Traevon Jackson has a fractured right foot and will require surgery after suffering the injury in the Badgers’ 67-62 upset loss to Rutgers Sunday.Jackson will have surgery Thursday and is expected to miss about six weeks. He will begin rehabbing the injury in approximately 2-3 weeks.“I’m just trying to enjoy the process, learn from this and trust in Christ,” Jackson said in a statement from UW Athletics. “I know my teammates will come together and be stronger because of this. I’m looking forward to coming back mentally stronger than ever and more prepared to win championships and finish off the year and the seniors’ careers the right way.”Through 17 games this season, Jackson is averaging 9.4 points and a team-leading 2.9 assists per game for the Badgers. The senior is also shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 85.4 percent from the free throw line. Jackson had started the last 84 games for the Badgers.As a result of the injury, it is expected that sophomore guard Bronson Koenig will take Jackson’s spot in the starting lineup. Koenig made his first career start Sunday after senior forward Frank Kaminsky was ruled out with concussion-like symptoms. The sophomore scored 12 points and recorded 3 assists in the start.Koenig is averaging 4.9 points and 2.1 assists while playing 20.5 minutes per game off the bench for the Badgers this season. Koenig brings a skill-set that includes great, flashy passing and a deadly pull-up jump shot, but also one that lacks the quickness and ability to get to the basket that Jackson had.While the injury will guarantee an increase in minutes for Koenig, it will go beyond that, as the Badgers are already a team that goes no more than eight deep on a normal night. Head coach Bo Ryan will most likely look at redshirt sophomore guard Zak Showalter, who has seen the court in just 13 of Wisconsin’s 17 games, to log more minutes and redshirt senior guard Josh Gasser to run Wisconsin’s swing offense when Koenig is on the bench.The Badgers will get the first chance to test out their new lineup without Jackson Thursday when they play host to Nebraska at the Kohl Center.last_img read more

Further frustrations expressed with structure of club championships

first_imgFurther frustration’s been expressed about the level of Tipperary club games in both codes being played within days of each other.Having overcome Kilksheelan Kilcash in Round 2 of the County Senior Football Championship last night, JK Brackens are in club hurling action on Saturday with virtually the same team lining out.Manager Jim Mullen says it means players with injuries just dont get sufficient recovery time Meanwhile, there are a number of county senior football games down for decision this evening.In Group 2 Arravale Rovers face Moyle Rovers in Golden at half 7, and Aherlow Gaels take on Fethard at 8 in New Inn.In Group 3 Ardfinnan play Eire Og Anacarthy/Donohill in Bansha, and Loughmore-Castleiney play Galtee Rovers/St Pecaun in Leahy Park Cashel.

David Moyes Named New West Ham Manager

first_imgWest Ham have appointed former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes as their new manager, the struggling Premier League club announced on Tuesday.“We believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club,” joint chairman David Sullivan said.The Hammers sacked manager Slaven Bilic on Monday after a poor run of results that have left the east London side languishing in the relegation zone. Saturday’s chastening 4-1 loss at home to Liverpool convinced Sullivan and co-owner David Gold that Bilic’s time was up, with the pair banking on the 54-year-old Moyes’s understanding of the English game to keep the club in the top flight.“We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club,” said Sullivan.“He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm.”Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from his post Sunderland at the end of last season, having failed to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier League.Despite that, and an underwhelming stint in Spain with Real Sociedad, the Hammers are backing the Scot to help shore up a leaky defence as well as getting the best out of big-money summer signings Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez.After Moyes emerged as the leading contender to replace Bilic, many West Ham fans regarded his proposed arrival at the London Stadium with scepticism.But Moyes, whose first game in charge will be at Watford a week on Sunday following the international break, urged them to get behind him and his squad.“I’m really looking forward to meeting the supporters and being in the stadium with them,” Moyes said in comments published on West Ham’s Twitter feed.“I’m looking forward to seeing them get right behind the team, and my team also. We need the support, we need everybody with us.”He added: “It’s a big job we have in hand now but I’m sure with everybody together we can get the right results between now and the end of the season.”Former West Ham defender Bilic is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season, the Croatian’s exit following those of Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace), Craig Shakespeare (Leicester) and Ronald Koeman (Everton).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Former Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is ‘really f—ing upset’ with Kareem Hunt

first_img Redskins executive Doug Williams apologizes for ‘insensitive’ comments “REALLY F—ING UPSET KAREEM……”I thought I made my mistakes painfully clear!!!!I thought I was a perfect example of what NOT to do!!!!I thought by speaking aloud about my pitfalls that players after me could see these situations before they’d happen.REALLY FUCKING UPSET KAREEM……— Larry Johnson (@2LarryJohnson7) November 30, 2018Johnson was arrested at least six times after joining the NFL in 2003 — five of those arrests were on various assault charges against women, four while he was an active player.In 2003, his first of six years with the Chiefs, he was arrested for felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for waving a gun at his then-girlfriend during an argument at Johnson’s home. The charges were eventually dropped when he agreed to participate in a domestic violence diversion program.But in 2005, he was again arrested for assault when a woman accused Johnson of pushing her to the ground. This case was also dropped after the woman failed to appear in court. His third arrest came in February 2008, after allegedly pushing a woman’s head at a nightclub and another in October of that year when he was charged with one count of non-aggravated assault for allegedly spitting a drink in a woman’s face at a Kansas City nightclub. On October 5, 2012, Johnson was arrested again, this time in Las Vegas, for domestic violence charges that include strangulation and two years later on October 7, 2014, he was arrested for the sixth time after punching a man in a Miami Beach club and allegedly cutting him with a broken bottle. Johnson also served two years of probation after pleading guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace in March 2009. Larry Johnson is upset with Kareem Hunt.The former Chiefs running back took to Twitter after a video surfaced of Kansas City’s current rusher shoving a woman several times, and later kicking her as she was hunched over on the ground. The footage is believed to be related to an alleged altercation dating back to February at The Metropolitan at the 9, Hunt’s hotel apartment located in downtown Cleveland.  “I thought I made my mistakes painfully clear!!!!,” Johnson wrote. “I thought I was a perfect example of what NOT to do!!!!”I thought by speaking aloud about my pitfalls that players after me could see these situations before they’d happen.
