Daehli snatches late Cardiff point

first_img Solskjaer’s men had to wait until the 15th minute for their first chance, when Andrew Taylor’s low cross from the left evaded Gareth McAuley and almost fell at the feet of Fraizer Campbell. But having looked completely shell-shocked for much of the first period, Cardiff gave themselves hope on the half-hour when Aron Gunnarsson found Mutch on the right and the midfielder matched Amalfitano’s effort by curling the ball over Foster from 35 yards. For the first time, the home side’s nerves were evident although the excellent Amalfitano continued to dictate matters from the right flank, his good work setting up a chance for 1 Youssouf Mulumbu whose low shot was gathered well by Marshall. Solskjaer introduced another striker in Daehli at the break but it was West Brom who once again made the best start to the second period, Dawson twisting a shot over the bar then getting in the way of an apparently goal-bound effort from Mulumbu. And Marshall had to get down bravely to deny Vydra at close-range in the 52nd minute before James Morrison blazed the rebound high. The tiring Amalfitano was replaced by Saido Berahino in the 72nd minute as Mel made plain his intention to try to make the game safe – but moments later a Medel free-kick spelled disaster for the Baggies. Caulker rose highest to reach the set-piece in a crowded box and while he may not have known too much about it, his back-header looped over the helpless Foster and into the corner of the net. It marked an astonishing change in fortunes for Solskjaer’s men after their nine-minute nightmare, and it was clear their massed ranks of fans behind Foster’s goal believed they could go on and claim all three points. Substitute Daehli wriggled in the left side of the Baggies box and hit a shot straight at Foster, before the late, late drama – celebrations for Thievy’s winner were stunningly cut short by Daehli at the other end. Daehli turned and fired an injury-time equaliser past Baggies keeper Ben Foster just moments after Thievy Bifouma looked certain to have grabbed a first home win for boss Pepe Mel at the other end. The late drama summed up a wildly open game in which the visitors were lucky to still be in with a shout after a torrid first 10 minutes. An outrageous second-minute opener from Morgan Amalfitano and a second from Graham Dorrans had threatened to put the home side out of sight as the day looked like it was turning into a nightmare for Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But a long-range effort from Jordan Mutch gave Cardiff a glimmer of hope and Steven Caulker’s 73rd minute back-header from Gary Medel’s free-kick looked like leaving Mel waiting longer for that first home win. Thievy had other ideas, turning in Stephane Sessegnon’s deflected shot in injury time to spark wild celebrations on the home bench. But with referee Michael Oliver looking at his watch, there was still time for Wilfried Zaha to make inroads down the right and send in a cross from which Daehli grabbed another barely believable equaliser. At the end of the day a point was what neither side wanted after 90 minutes of high-octane and often kamikaze action. But it was a particularly crushing setback for the Baggies who looked set for a productive afternoon when Amalfitano, back in the side after two games out with a knee injury, spotted Cardiff keeper David Marshall off his line and lobbed home the opener from a tight angle on the right. It could have got even worse for the visitors in a torrid opening period, Marshall going some way to redeeming himself with a vital touch three minutes later to deny an almost certain second for Matej Vydra. With less than 10 minutes on the clock, Cardiff’s nightmare start was complete as Amalfitano sent in another superb ball from the right to Vydra, whose simple pass across the box was gleefully turned in by Dorrans. Substitute Mats Daehli snatched a potentially priceless point for Cardiff in a crazy finish to their Barclays Premier League relegation clash against West Brom, which ended 3-3 at The Hawthorns.

Mourinho will rest World Cup stars

first_imgWorld Cup fatigue will stop Chelsea fielding their strongest line-up for the first three matches of the new season, according to Jose Mourinho. Press Association The Chelsea boss will not rush his six World Cup stars, who have had precious little club preparation, back into Barclays Premier League action. Germany’s Andre Schurrle, Brazil trio Oscar, Willian and Ramires and Belgian pair Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have missed most of Chelsea’s pre-season after their World Cup exploits. Mourinho admitted being forced to wait patiently while a host of senior stars shake off their summer exertions is simply a fact of football life. “This is modern football,” Mourinho said ahead of Monday night’s trip to Burnley. “It’s going in this tendency – more matches, more competitions, less time to work, even not enough time to have a real holiday for bodies and brains that top football players need. “There’s not enough time. “In our case we had a group that had a good holiday and a good pre-season, then we had another group because Spain was out in the group phase, and that allowed us to get five players before we expected. “So that was good and created a medium group – but the final group is very late. “Are they ready individually? No. “But we have to be ready as a team for Monday. “Can it be a team of six guys not ready? No. “It must be a team with the majority of the players that had a proper pre-season and they are in a better condition. “So we have to make options, and probably the team to play the first two or three matches is more about the team that is ready.” Mourinho has admitted he will have his work cut out to appease rival goalkeepers Courtois and Petr Cech, but vowed to foster competition between the duo. The Stamford Bridge boss said he would underline his unstinting faith in both stoppers by handing both stars opportunities in high-stakes matches. “I cannot kill competition, I cannot close the door for someone to get into the team,” he said. “And I cannot give a player, even a goalkeeper, guarantees that he is my first choice forever, if he doesn’t perform. “Obviously you cannot change a goalkeeper if he makes a mistake, but you can change a goalkeeper if he makes five mistakes. “And so what is my first choice today cannot be my first choice tomorrow, it depends on performance. “But if the goalkeeper gives stability to the team then I don’t see a reason to change. “I don’t do, ‘You are the keeper in this competition, you are the keeper in that competition’. “I must support the keeper who is not first choice, and to support him is not to give him a Capital One Cup game. “Supporting him is showing him my trust: when nobody is expecting. “I remember I did that with Petr and (ex-Chelsea keeper Carlo) Cudicini, I played Cudicini against (Real) Betis in the Champions League in the first game of the group, not in the sixth where we were qualified, in the first. “So the best way to show a player you trust him is to play him when nobody expects and in games of responsibilities. “And with these two goalkeepers I can do that when I want.” last_img read more

Police: Man Threatens to Shoot Up Juno Beach Pier

Bielema tries to aid Smith

first_imgBEN CLASSON/Herald photoP.J. Hill might have stolen the show Saturday with his 113 yards and game-winning touchdown, but sophomore Lance Smith deserves some credit as well. Hill’s backup ran for 37 yards on just five carries, including a big 30-yard pickup.”Lance has continued to make good strides,” head coach Bret Bielema said, “and as you can see, he can change the game just because of his speed, and the way he bounced that ball outside was a little different dynamic that I don’t think Iowa was prepared for just due to the flow of the game.”Smith has done a good job for the Badgers so far, but still must compete with freshman Zack Brown for the backup role.”Whatever that 1-2 punch ends up being — whether it’s Lance, whether it’s Zach — we’ll just continue to practice,” Bielema said.”We told those players last week, how you practice during the week — between Zach and Lance — is going to determine who goes into the game first.”Still serving a suspension that prevents him for traveling to road games this season makes it tough for Smith and the Badgers, but Bielema stood up for the running back last Monday when the coach spoke to the university about Smith’s punishment.“As a head coach you go out and recruit kids all over the country, and it’s your responsibility to try and stand up for them if you feel the situation deserves it,” Bielema said. “So all I did was go over and had a very positive session with the dean of students and gave them some new information that wasn’t relevant or wasn’t present at the time of their talks with the people involved.”Not only information from the actual incident that night, but some preceding information and definitely information that was gathered after the fact. … I know this: Lance has handled it very, very well. I know that he made a mistake and he ‘fessed up to it, but where that lies right now is really determined by the people bigger than me.”Stadium atmosphere aids BadgersAs the UW football team fought its way to victory, the players and coaches were not the only factors that came into play Saturday night. The turnout of students proudly sporting their red clothing contributed to an atmosphere that was critical in the 17-13 win.Bielema was thankful for the crowd, which was influential in forcing the Iowa Hawkeyes to burn two time-outs in the first half due to the level of noise resonating in Camp Randall.”It was truly an amazing game-day environment,” Bielema said. “Clearly [the students] were 100 percent in alignment with the Sea of Red theory, and it was overwhelming.”Due to the crowd’s perpetual dedication, a photograph was taken of the picturesque stadium in the fourth quarter.”We will be able to use [that picture] in recruiting,” Bielema said. “That is a dominating thing, especially going into the fourth quarter.”Preparation key to successThe win over Iowa brought Wisconsin its 13th consecutive win, the longest current winning streak in the nation and second-longest streak in the program’s history. “I am very proud of our staff and very fortunate to have a group of guys that I believe don’t falter off the task at hand,” Bielema said. “[The staff] does a great job of preparing our guys during the week.”The time and energy that go into preparing the players for each game is a key component in the result.”[The game] on Saturday was won during the week with how we prepared,” Bielema said. “We knew that Iowa, coming off a loss to their in-state rival [Iowa State], was going to come up here with every gun blazing and everything on the line being their first Big Ten game as well.”The Hawkeyes, however, were unable to contain the Badgers, who were aware of the significance the conference game would have on the remainder of the season. Bielema made it a point to emphasize the notion that the team needed to simply “play football.””We talked a lot about letting the game come to you,” Bielema said. “Sometimes when you think you’re going to be good or are expected to be good, you try to make things happen, but if you rely on what is natural, good things will happen.”DeBauche highlights special teams playPunter Ken DeBauche was named Special Teams Player of the Week by the Big Ten after his strong performance against Iowa Saturday.”[Special teams’ players] have a desire to just help the team,” Bielema said. “They realize they are not really ever going to get their names in the media unless they block a punt.”The attitude of the special teams’ players, combined with the relationship Bielema has with this aspect of the team (he’s the special teams coach), has resulted in strong play from the units.”You have to create a certain type of environment to have success in [special teams’], Bielema said. “A lot of teams that have had success over time [have had] head coaches be directly involved, and I am enjoying it.”The ability of Bielema to adapt the special teams’ strategy throughout the game has been helpful in solving problems that have occurred.”We made an adjustment to their kickoff coverage after they nailed [Gilreath] and were able get positive yardage on the next return,” Bielema said. “We have so many guys contributing and coming together.”last_img read more

Jamaica’s Next General Election “Highly Likely” in 2020

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica – At the 76th staging of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) annual general conference, Prime Minister Andrew Holness teased the possibility of the next general elections in the very near future.Constitutionally, the general elections are due within five years and three months of the date of the first sitting of the new Parliament; which means that the next election should be held between February 25, 2021 (five years after the date of this election) and June 10, 2021, (within five years and three months of the date of the first sitting of the new Parliament).Speaking to the thousands of roaring Labourites on November 24, Holness said the general elections are “not too long to come, but we [the JLP] are not there yet.”“Very soon we will have everything in place, and when everything is in place, you will see me reach for the bell”, Holness said.General Secretary of the JLP and Minister of National Security, Dr. Horace Chang also added that with a 2020 general election highly likely, he is confident that the party will be ready to respond. “In the meantime, we will continue the training and recruitment that is ongoing in the party to ensure that we are in the best of shape. We have some time; we’ll do it at the right time”, he said.Prime Minister Holness received resounding support from members of parliament as well as guest speakers, Former Prime Minister and JLP leader, Bruce Golding, and Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr. Keith Mitchell who both sang Holness’ praises.“For the three years and nine months that he has been prime minister he has stamped his leadership on this country, and he has ignited the hopes and dreams of the vast majority of Jamaicans, especially young people who see him as an example of what they, too, can achieve,” Golding said.Similarly, Dr. Mitchell said that he is looking forward to Andrew Holness’ next tenure as Prime Minister. “Continue to recognize and appreciate the gem that you have in the Jamaica Labour Party and its leader”, he said to JLP supporters. “Do not disappoint me. I would like to continue with the next three years as prime minister of Grenada with the vision and support of Andrew Holness.”While Holness and his administration has achieved much since 2016- a decline in unemployment, the conclusion of the IMF program, economic growth, a leading stock market, a new income tax threshold and higher minimum wage, among other positives; his tenure has not been without its challenges.Holness sought to address the high level of corruption in his administration, which may be among the main reasons that Jamaicans choose not to re-elect him.“I couldn’t leave the stage without saying to you that corruption is an issue that occupies the front of my mind. I couldn’t leave here today and not say to you that we still need to tighten up on the anti-corruption systems and framework that exists,” he said.“It is not for want of putting in the legislative and institutional processes. They are there. But you have to bear in mind that we are also very new on the scale of dealing with anti-corruption issues. So there is a learning curve that we are going through,” he stated.last_img read more

George Kittle’s evolution into NFL star latest example of Iowa’s tight end pipeline

first_imgKittle — who has consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and has emerged as one of the game’s best blocking tight ends — can do both. That he mentioned Clark first among that list of tight ends isn’t an accident.MORE: A new standard: The ripple effects if the 49ers win sixth Super BowlClark is part of an Iowa pipeline that has produced 11 draft picks at the position since Kirk Ferentz took over in 1999. Clark was a first-round pick in 2003 and lived up to the billing with the Colts. Kittle, however, was a fifth-round selection in 2017. One might wonder how that happened, given the talent the 6-4, 250-pound tight end has flashed with the 49ers.Go back to the pipeline to find the answer.YearPlayerRound2000Austin Wheatley52003Dallas Clark12004Erik Jensen72005Tony Jackson62007Scott Chandler42009Brandon Myers62010Tony Moeaki32014C.J. Fiedorowicz32017George Kittle52019T.J. Hockenson12019Noah Fant1Ferentz likes to joke that, every time Iowa lost a game when he was an assistant coach under Hayden Fry in the 1980s, his wife would say they didn’t throw to the tight end enough. That wasn’t a problem with Kittle, even if he proved to be a late bloomer in college.”That is one of the things people maybe failed to appreciate in the NFL,” Ferentz told Sporting News. “When I was coaching there for six years, sometimes in scouting you forget that guys have the potential to grow and improve when they get to the NFL. George is a great illustration of that. He was a late bloomer in high school and fair to say that happened out of college, too.”Ferentz said Kittle, whose father Bruce was a captain on the 1981 Rose Bowl team and mother Jan was a basketball star at Drake, was a late add in the recruiting process. He was a 6-3, 200-pounder who had potential at either tight end or outside linebacker. (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/62/f6/george-kittle-022020-getty-ftrjpg_cphm891yf1c61wcqysm1pwejo.jpg?t=-227006625&w=500&quality=80 “I can’t remember seeing any tight end block like he has consistently,” Ferentz said. “It’s been very, very impressive. A lot of credit goes to George.”That’s great for Iowa’s tight end pipeline, which Kittle can now rep on the biggest stage in football.”We try not to screw ’em up if we get a good one,” Ferentz said. “He was a really good player here, but he’s beyond really good right now. He’s just playing super football. As a coach, you appreciate that.” Kittle grew into his role as a tight end, playing through injuries in his final two seasons to compile 42 catches for 604 yards and 10 touchdowns: not exactly big numbers, though perhaps an explanation of how he fell to the fifth round.”He played well and had some flash plays that were like, ‘Whoa,’ but he wasn’t maybe as consistent as what they are looking for,” Ferentz said of Kittle. “Being a fifth-round pick was probably was fair. He was between a third- and sixth-round guy, but I think the moral of the story is he has continued to improve.”MORE: An apology for doubting San Francisco’s Super Bowl runFerentz sees a few things that have taken Kittle’s game to the same level as those tight ends he talked about.”He has grown since he got there,” Ferentz said. “We don’t count on that happening often. He’s a taller guy now. He looks like he’s 6-5 or 6-6 on the field.”Ferentz also recognized Kittle’s versatility, but said it’s his blocking that has stood out most in San Francisco’s last two games against the Vikings and Packers. 49ers tight end George Kittle was asked about the evolution of his position at San Francisco’s team hotel on Tuesday, part of the buildup to the Sunday Super Bowl 54 matchup against the Chiefs.”The tight end position has evolved a lot,” Kittle said. “From just the traditional wide stuff to Dallas Clark to (Rob Gronkowski), to (Travis Kelce), to (Zach Ertz). There’s Tony Gonzalez. It’s just evolved so much. You have guys who can do both.”last_img read more
