Jurgen Klopp laughs off broken glasses after Liverpool win thriller at Norwich

first_img “They do what we have to do, defend the first ball, but because of our history they all stay in the box. “The first (Norwich) goal, with the heel, you have to be offside if you stay there. It’s unbelievable. It’s not possible. “I am not happy with this situation, for sure.” Dieumerci Mbokani had cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s opener with a brilliant back-heel before Steven Naismith put Norwich 2-1 up at half-time. Wes Hoolahan converted a penalty after Alberto Moreno fouled Naismith, before Jordan Henderson and then Firmino scored to level matters. James Milner scored after Russell Martin’s terrible back-pass to put Liverpool in front again, but Sebastien Bassong thought he had earned a point for Norwich with a stoppage-time strike, only for Lallana’s winner. “At the end we can be really happy with everything, nearly everything, especially with the three points,” Klopp said. “But a draw would’ve been deserved for both teams.” Norwich boss Alex Neil was crestfallen after watching his side give away a 3-1 lead. He said: “We were good value for 3-1. I thought we were the better side. “They scored really quickly after we got our third goal, through poor defending from us. “I don’t really know what to say. Defensively they made extremely poor decisions, cost ourselves three points, because we had it comfortably. “We failed to make correct decisions at vital times in the game and it cost us goals. “People’s lasting memory of this game will be what happened in the last 25 minutes of this game. “Up until then everything was going well for us, but then we transpired to really be the makers of our own downfall, through poor decision making, not looking after the ball, looking nervous and edgy at the back and basically not defending our box well enough. “I didn’t really celebrate the fourth goal, because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. “I’m extremely angry. And so should they be. Angry with themselves, frustrated. “We managed to score four goals at home, which should mean we’re going home with three points.” Naismith’s performance was a bright point, but Neil could only think of the manner of the defeat. He added: “He was good, but it’s so frustrating, because I’m pretty sure the forward play that we had, the boys will be thinking we deserved something from the game. “But when you defend the way we did as a team it isn’t really going to matter.” Adam Lallana celebrated his stoppage-time winner in the nine-goal thriller at Carrow Road by embracing Klopp, who lost his glasses as the rest of the team joined in. Asked about the joyous scenes which greeted Liverpool’s first Barclays Premier League win of 2016, Klopp said: “I don’t know, I saw nothing. Jurgen Klopp was able to laugh off comical defending after breaking his glasses celebrating Liverpool’s astonishing 5-4 win at Norwich. “Usually I have a second pair, but I couldn’t find them. It’s really difficult looking for glasses without glasses.” It was not the first time Klopp’s glasses had been broken during a match, with one damaged pair residing in former club Borussia Dortmund’s museum. “We won for the first time against Bayern Munich and Nuri Sahin broke my glasses. Today it was Adam,” he added. The defending Klopp witnessed before substitute Lallana’s dramatic late intervention was less amusing. “It may sound crazy when I say we defended better today,” Klopp added. “We’ve made different mistakes. If you win 5-4 it’s a funny story, but it’s not that funny. We have to solve it. “Today we conceded four goals after set-plays, but we defended them better. We got all the goals after second ball set plays. Things like this can happen. “That’s how life is: solve one problem and you have another one. Press Associationlast_img read more

Charlie Austin’s debut Southampton goal piles pressure on Louis van Gaal

first_img Press Association United supporters once again vented their anger towards Van Gaal after watching their team put on yet another dull, uninspiring performance at Old Trafford. Boos rang out around Old Trafford at half-time and following the final whistle as Saints recorded only their second win at United’s home since 1988, but also their second in 13 months. Charlie Austin scored the winner with his first touch in a Southampton shirt to pile the pressure on beleaguered Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal. There was no doubting who the home supporters blamed for this latest insipid display. Van Gaal was jeered at as he walked down the tunnel. The message was clear – he is no longer wanted by some of them. United’s fans had every right to feel let down by the United manager. This was dour stuff from United, possibly the worst performance of what has been a forgettable season. And they are now five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with 15 matches to go. United too often shifted the ball sideways and backwards, which caused groans from the home supporters. And when Austin rose unmarked to power in James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick in the 87th minute, it came as no surprise. United offered next to nothing in front of goal. Fraser Forster had one save to make all match. Van Gaal claimed in his programme notes that United had started 2016 “well”, but the home fans who were put through yet another dreadful 45 minutes must have disagreed. Yes, results had improved recently, but the style of play has not. United were often ponderous in possession and seemed too nervous to pass forward. Daley Blind provided Forster with his only test of the opening 45 minutes, but the England goalkeeper had little trouble collecting the Dutchman’s long-range shot. Wayne Rooney dragged a shot wide and Anthony Martial tried to chase a short backpass from Virgil van Dijk, but otherwise there was little optimism from the home supporters. Those who left their seats for their half-time refreshments just after the half hour mark missed the best chance of the half. It went to Southampton, who should have taken the lead when Dusan Tadic played a one-two with Sadio Mane but the striker’s touch let him down and David de Gea collected. Boos rang out when United pumped the ball forward twice in quick succession and more jeers came when the half-time whistle sounded. Cheers greeted the announcement that the blundering Marouane Fellaini, who had earlier caught Victor Wanyama with his forearm while jumping, was to be replaced by Juan Mata. The Spaniard injected purpose and energy into United’s attacks. Mata laid the ball off to Martial inside the box, but Van Dijk put in a well-timed interception to deny the Frenchman. Saints rose to the challenge, launching an assault on the United defence around the hour. Wanyama and Long went close with headers from inside the box. Van Gaal was forced into an unwanted substitution when Matteo Darmian, the club’s only fit senior full-back, was replaced by Paddy McNair after being caught in the ribs by Long while jumping for the ball. Austin came on for his Saints debut with 12 minutes to go. His strike partner Long wasted a good chance by heading over James Ward-Prowse’s cross. Austin did not pass on his opportunity, however. The £4million signing lost his marker and powered in Ward-Prowse’s free-kick before Van Gaal walked down the touchline to boos and whistles from the home fans. TWEET OF THE MATCH “7 wins in 22 for #mufc now all comps. 5 PL wins in 16. Every forward step followed by two backwards. How much longer can LvG cling on?” – Sport Journalist Adam Crafton (@AdamCrafton_) questions how long Louis van Gaal can keep his job at Old Trafford. RATINGS MANCHESTER UNITED David de Gea: 6 (out of 10) Cameron Borthwick-Jackson: 5 Chris Smalling: 6 Daley Blind: 5 Matteo Darmian: 6 Morgan Schneiderlin: 5 Marouane Fellaini: 5 Jesse Lingard: 6 Ander Herrera: 6 Anthony Martial: 5 Wayne Rooney: 5 Subs: Juan Mata: 6 Paddy McNair: 5 Adnan Januzaj: 5 SOUTHAMPTON: Fraser Forster: 6 Cedric Soares: 6 Jose Fonte: 7 Virgil van Dijk: 7 Ryan Bertrand: 7 Matt Targett: 6 Jordy Clasie: 7 Dusan Tadic: 6 Victor Wanyama: 7 Sadio Mane: 7 Shane Long: 6 Subs: Oriol Romeu: 6 James Ward-Prowse: 6 Charlie Austin: 7 STAR PLAYER Ryan Bertrand. The England international – who is currently being linked with United – was one of several Southampton defenders to put in a solid shift. Jose Fonte and Virgil van Dijk also impressed. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Charlie Austin’s goal. Eight minutes after coming off the bench, Southampton’s new striker marked his debut with the first thing even approaching clinical finishing the game had seen as he nodded in fellow substitute James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick. VIEW FROM THE BENCH After a more encouraging performance attack-wise against Newcastle and good result at Liverpool, Louis van Gaal was looking for a combination of the two from his team here. But he saw them deliver neither, United producing another home display devoid of creative spark and condemned to defeat by Austin’s late header. Van Gaal’s counterpart and fellow Dutchman Ronald Koeman will be delighted with a sturdy, patient effort from Southampton that was rewarded with all three points after the new frontman was thrown on. MOAN OF THE MATCH There had been signs of late that things were starting to pick up for Van Gaal’s side, but this was another performance to leave United fans wondering what direction their club is heading in. The Red Devils seem incapable of building any momentum at the moment and the players appear to be hampered by nerves at their own stadium.

Murdered Woman’s Family Drops Lawsuit Against Best Buy, Others

first_imgThe family of a woman who was killed during an appliance delivery in Boca Raton last summer has dropped their lawsuit against Best Buy and its subcontractors.The suspect, 21-year-old Jorge Dupre Lachazo, is accused of killing 75-year-old Evelyn Udell on August 19, when he and David Gonzalez delivered a washer and dryer to her home. The pair worked for XM Delivery, which was subcontracted by Best Buy.The lawsuit named Best Buy, freight carrier J.B. Hunt, and XM Delivery, as well as the XM employees, Dupre Lachazo and Gonzalez, the driver in the delivery, and XM Delivery owner Manuel Chavez. It also named the two workers who sold the appliances at the Best Buy store.Online court records show that the family filed a notice of voluntary dismissal with prejudice last week, which means they are waiving their rights to file another lawsuit with the same claims.I’m working on legislation for the upcoming session that will protect Floridians when having furniture or appliances delivered to their homes. You can read more about it here. https://t.co/SQtsDwFyjT #flapol #Sayfie— Mike Caruso (@RepMikeCaruso) October 29, 2019 Dupre Lachazo is charged with first-degree murder and faces the death penalty. Police say he beat the 75-year-old retired librarian and grandmother, and then set her on fire. She died the next day.He told police that he heard voices telling him to kill Udell, adding that they belonged to drug dealers who had sexually molested him and threatened his mother.“I threw my life away at 21 years old,” Dupre Lachazo told the detectives on the day of the attack. “I’m a bad person. I want to die. Use that pistol already. Use it already. Disappear me. Disappear me.”Soon after the murder, State Republican Rep. Mike Caruso, of Delray Beach, introduced a bill that would require big-box stores such as Best Buy to notify its customers when a delivery has been subcontracted.The legislation, which failed to pass a subcommittee on March 14, would have also required fingerprint-based “Level 2” background checks for any delivery person who enters a person’s home.last_img read more
