Mourinho unhappy with ‘ridiculous’ goal

first_imgMourinho’s misery was compounded when Phil Jones turned Kieran Trippier’s cross into his own goal for Spurs’ second goal.Later, the Portuguese said he felt his players had forgotten all their pre-game planning in conceding the early goal.“I don’t think it is very normal to concede a goal like we did after 15 seconds,” Mourinho said. “It is especially ridiculous because the players, they watch it before, we analyse opponents and work on opponents’ dynamics and routines.“The players they knew the long ball, they knew that Harry Kane – before the kick-off, is already inside the opponent’s half. We knew everything.“Then we don’t press the ball – one mistake. We don’t pick the ball in the air – second mistake. We don’t win the second ball on the ground – third mistake. We don’t cover the inside when Eriksen comes – four mistakes.“Four mistakes after 15 seconds and you are losing 1-0 against a good team. Then I think (we had) a good reaction.He even suggested that the goal could have been disallowed.“He (Kane) was (in our half) – if the linesman or if the referee sees it, of course, it wouldn’t be a goal, but it wouldn’t be fair for me to blame the referee.”Mourinho admitted that given City’s lead the race for one of the remaining top-four places was going to be tight.“I always think when the leader has a certain distance, I have been there a few times, you are calm, you are relaxed and you don’t feel the pressure,” Mourinho added. “You know that your opponent, sooner or later, is going to drop at least a couple of points and you are completely in control.“We play match after match, yes the Premier League finishes for us at Old Trafford in May against Watford but you knew the distance to the leader was already considerable even before this match. Now we have us, Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal – we will be there fighting for the positions.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fellaini appeared to have words with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Teenager Greenwood rescues Man Utd in Everton draw

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood equalised in the draw against Everton © AFP / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 15 – Mason Greenwood came off the bench to rescue Manchester United as the teenage striker’s late equaliser secured a 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell behind to Victor Lindelof’s controversial first half own-goal after United’s appeals for a foul on David de Gea were ignored by VAR. “It was a clear foul but there’s no point me complaining. It (VAR) will be better next year. They’ll have to look at it,” Solskjaer said.But Greenwood, introduced in the second half, underlined his vast potential with a clinical strike 13 minutes from full-time.The 18-year-old is the third youngest player to score a Premier League goal at Old Trafford after former United forwards Federico Macheda and Danny Welbeck.Bradford-born Greenwood, a product of United’s youth academy, now has seven goals in his breakthrough season after netting twice in his previous appearance against Alkmaar in the Europa League on Thursday.This was his second Premier League goal after his strike against Sheffield United in November and his rapid progress is a bright spot in a difficult season for Solskjaer’s sixth placed team.It was fitting that Greenwood scored in the 4,000th senior match in succession in which at least one youth graduate was represented in United’s first-team or matchday squad, an extraordinary record stretching back over nine decades.After their impressive wins over Tottenham and Manchester City in their last two league games, United’s frustrating draw reaffirmed how much improvement is still needed under Solskjaer despite Greenwood’s ascent.“Today is not a big step backwards, it’s more of a stand still, not improving,” said Solskjaer.United have been linked with a January move for Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland and Solskjaer said: “He knows what he wants to do and he knows what he’s going to do. So I don’t have to give any advice to any other teams’ players.”For Duncan Ferguson, Everton’s caretaker manager, this spirited performance built on the momentum from last weekend’s win over Chelsea.Hit by injuries and illness, Everton were more solid than under the sacked Marco Silva.– Buying time –But Ferguson, a popular club legend, insisted he isn’t the right man to lead Everton in the long-term.“I think it’s buying them a bit of time until they can get the right man in. That’s what a couple of results does, so we can make that process more diligent,” he said.“We need the best manager in the world to manage Everton Football Club and I’ve not got the right experience. I’m all for us bringing in a top manager and if I can be part of it, brilliant.”Everton took the lead in bizarre fashion in the 36th minute.When Leighton Baines sent over an inswinging corner, De Gea came and missed as he tried to punch clear, with the ball bouncing off Lindelof into his own net.United protested that Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin had fouled De Gea by putting an arm across his face, but although the goal was reviewed by VAR it was allowed to stand.Solskjaer introduced Greenwood with 25 minutes left and it proved an inspired move.Greenwood immediately had an effort saved by Pickford and, with United firmly on the front foot, the teenage starlet equalised in the 77th minute.Picked out by James, Greenwood steadied himself on the edge of the area with a perfect first touch before drilling his low left-foot shot through a crowd of Everton defenders and past Pickford.In a tense finale, Alex Iwobi almost won it for Everton with a dipping shot that De Gea pushed away before Ferguson hauled off substitute Moise Kean only 18 minutes after putting him on.“I was just doing it for fresh legs. Unfortunately he was the one I decided to bring off. I see why he’s upset, but it’s about the team,” Ferguson said of the unusual Kean substitution.0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more


first_imgA big crowd turned out last Saturday for the annual Christmas hamper competition, held in ideal weather conditions, amazing for the middle of winter. Getting straight down to business of the prizewinners, the only thing that can be said about the winning score is that it was unbeatable. Although the annual hamper always throws up big scores on the day, James Lynch’s 51 pts will take a long time to beat, leaving the rest of the field chasing second spot !Kerrykeel’s Patrick Kelly dusted off the cobwebs to bring out his A game, and record an equally impressive 47 points to claim second place, followed one shot back on 46 by Paul Murray, and Shaun Duffy coming 4th with 44. The gross went to Arthur Morisson, with the nines going to Pat McNulty and Martin O’Reilly, longest drive was won by Ivan Clifford, and nearest the pin went to Sidney Anderson. Congratulations to all participants, and to Kevin, Eamonn, Gerry and anyone else involved in the organising of the day. Sunday was the last chance to catch the bird, and as with most weeks, the battle went right down to the wire. Despite all the planning of strategy by some of the losing teams, the trio of Damian Gallagher(again), Paul Murray and Kevin Tinney came up with the winning score of 8 under par to claim victory on the day, and leave the rest of the field with hard luck stories of near misses, and the ones that got away !Next Sunday the scramble winners will take home something to quench their thirst, and help wash down the festive fowl, same time as usual !  GOLF NEWS: OTWAY CLUB NEWS was last modified: December 18th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:OTWAY GOLF CLUB NOTESlast_img read more

Australian sporting gear company Spartan dupes Dhoni of crores

first_imgBy Bharat Sharma New Delhi, Jul 14 (PTI) Indias limited overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who remains a sought after personality in the endorsement world despite his retirement from Tests, has been duped by one of the many brands he endorses — Spartan Sports — of over Rs 20 crore. It has been reliably learnt that a three-year bat and sponsorship deal worth Rs 13 crore has gone sour with Australia-based Spartan Sports, a sporting gear and equipment company, regularly defaulting on payments. With the royalty clause on Dhonis bat deal included, the owed amount goes well over Rs 20 crore. Sources in legal firm advising Rhiti Sports, Dhonis management company, told PTI that Kunal Sharma-owned Spartan has paid only four installments since the deal was struck in December 2013, the latest payment being made in March 2016. When asked why the deal has gone awry, Rhiti Sports boss Arun Pandey did not elaborate before saying that, “everything is not smooth and hopefully the matter will be resolved soon”. Spartan boss Sharma did not respond to calls and messages despite repeated attempts. Besides Dhoni, the Australian company interestingly has big names of the cricketing world as its ambassadors — former Australian captain Michael Clarke, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle, England cricketer Eoin Morgan, former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson and Sir Viv Richards to name a few. Some other Australian cricketers associated with the brand are Joe Burns and Gurinder Sandhu. While the deal with Spartan is technically still on, Rhiti Sports are planning to take legal action against the company which has its flagship store not just in Sydney but also in New Delhi. Though Test captain Virat Kohli is the most sought after cricketer in the endorsement market, Dhoni remains in demand with his brand value worth over Rs 100 crore. Dhoni currently endorses 15 brands besides co-ownership in ISL football franchise Chennaiyin FC and Hockey India League team Ranchi Rays. PTI BS PM PMadvertisementlast_img read more

Syndergaard Outduels Scherzer, Mets Top Nationals, 2-0

first_imgNEW YORK — Noah Syndergaard readily admits he had no chance at the plate against Max Scherzer. On the mound, though, the young Mets ace more than held his own.Syndergaard brought his 100 mph heat and struck out 10, Curtis Granderson homered on Scherzer’s first pitch, and New York beat the Washington Nationals 2-0 May 17 to stop a four-game skid.“I think he rises to the challenge,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said.Syndergaard shows little emotion on or off the field, but was pumped up to face a former Cy Young Award winner who threw two no-hitters last year and fanned a record-tying 20 in his last start.“It just adds that much more,” Syndergaard said.Daniel Murphy returned to Citi Field with a major league-best .400 batting average and drew two early standing ovations, then got booed. The former Mets post-season star got one of five hits Syndergaard (4-2) gave up in seven innings.“Very nice of them,” Murphy said of the cheers.Michael Conforto also homered as the Mets sent the NL East leaders to their third straight loss. Jeurys Familia worked the ninth for his 13th save in as many chances.Scherzer (4-3) also struck out 10 in his first start since fanning a record-tying 20 against Detroit in his last outing. Kerry Wood set the modern mark of 33 strikeouts in consecutive starts in 1998.“It’s just one of those outings where, when you lose, it’s always frustrating, because you go back and think how you can pitch better,” Scherzer said. “At the end of the day, I did pitch well, just not well enough.”This was the first game in the majors this season in which both starters fanned at least 10.Syndergaard, who hit two home runs at Dodger Stadium in his previous start, struck out both times against Scherzer.“I couldn’t see anything he was throwing up there,” Syndergaard said. “I don’t know how anybody hits that guy.”Scherzer allowed just three hits in 6 1/3 innings but two of them left the ballpark.Granderson led off with a high fly that kept carrying and landed beyond the right-field wall. It was some late revenge for him — last October, Granderson popped up for the final out when Scherzer pitched a no-hitter and fanned 17 at this stadium.“First time that’s ever happened to me, giving up the first pitch as a home run,” Scherzer said.Syndergaard came out blazing, exactly a year after he earned his first career win. Now the hardest thrower among big league starters, the 23-year-old righty hit 100 mph with seven of his pitches in the first inning. He was under control, too, walking none.Nationals slugger Bryce Harper hit an easy come-backer and struck out twice against Syndergaard.Earlier in the day, they ran into each other at an ESPN presentation at the midtown theatre where The Lion King is playing, and Harper joked that it was a bit awkward.Harper had walked in 10 straight games, tying a franchise record, but went 0-for-4.Asked whether he ever considered pitching around Harper, Syndergaard simply said: “No, not at all.”Murphy homered in a postseason-record six straight games last October, and got a standing ovation when the Mets played a one-minute video montage of his highlights on the scoreboard before the game. He waved his hat to acknowledge the cheers.Murphy got another ovation when he batted for the first time, but got booed his next time up.Murphy became a free agent after helping the Mets reach the World Series, and the second baseman signed a $37.5 million, three-year deal with the Nationals.(BEN WALKER, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Watch: Balotelli challenges Marcelo with this incredible trick shot

first_imgMario Balotelli scored through an incredible trick shot from behind the goal post and challenged other football stars to emulate the same.The Italian striker on Thursday uploaded a video on his Instagram account where he could be seen scoring from behind the goal post with a trick shot.After scoring the goal, Mario challenged Brazil and Real Madrid star Marcelo to do the same.The former Manchester City striker posted the video with the caption: “Marcelo, brother, lets see if you can do this.”Apart from Marcelo, the 27-year-old also challenged some of the biggest name in world football including that of Neymar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and others.While Balotelli was busy having fun on the training ground, his footballing future is far from settled.The striker who is currently contracted to French club Nice created headlines at the start of July when failed to show up for the first day of pre-season.Balotelli, who has scored 33 goals in 51 Ligue 1 matches for Nice, has been linked with a move to Marseille.Balotelli’s decision to not attend the beginning of pre-season training didn’t go down well with Nice fans.In a statement released by Populaire Sud Nice ultra group, the supporters said they feel betrayed by Balotelli’s act.”First of all, we want to remind Mario that the Nicois welcomed him to Nice as a child of the city and the club, that he has been loved, hailed and supported like nowhere else and without doubt more than ever since the start of his career,” the statement read.advertisement”We totally accept that support and are therefore all the more disappointed, and we feel betrayed that he behaves this way towards a club and fans who have respected him and helped relaunch him.”In conclusion, Mario, when you are summoned for preseason, even if you know that perhaps you won’t stay, you turn up on time and say goodbye politely. Instead of stealing away like a thief in the night. You have got it all wrong, Mario.”However, Balotelli has since returned to Nice’s training centre as the club is locked in negotiations with Marseille.last_img read more
