Cortese said on the club’s official website: “We are now in a position to move forward with our ambitious plans for the club and I would like to thank Katharina for the very helpful manner in which she approached our talks about long-term strategy. I am pleased that this matter is now resolved. “We can now focus 100 per cent on our preparations for next season. We have tremendous momentum now at the club and we are looking forward with great confidence to an exciting and successful campaign next season. “The last few days have shown me the unity that we now have across the club in the players, the first team manager, the staff and the chairmanship which normally takes years to achieve. I have always believed that to create this unity would make us a very strong club and it is a unity of which I am unashamedly proud.” Cortese, who has overseen Saints’ rise from npower League One to the top flight, was linked with a move away from the club and earlier in the week when Pochettino was asked if he would stay should the Italian leave, the Argentinean was blunt. ”Of course not, because the person that has put his faith in me in this club and as a manager is Nicola Cortese. Nicola Cortese has basically been the reality at Southampton for the past four years,” he said. ”Of course, the people that are in the club, that are part of the club, that are behind the scenes in the club were a little bit worried about what has been said. Me on a personal sense, I would not understand a Southampton without Nicola being here.” Cortese replaced Nigel Adkins with Pochettino four months ago, a decision which has paid off with the Saints having secured Premier League status for next season. Southampton’s executive chairman Nicola Cortese will be staying at the club next season following a meeting with owner Katharina Liebherr, removing fears that manager Mauricio Pochettino could also exit St Mary’s. Cortese was said to be considering his position due to frustrations over the backing he receives. However, the pair signed off on the plans for the club next season, meaning the Italian will remain with the south coast club. Press Association
With United 12 points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea, the FA Cup looks to be the only chance the Dutchman has of ending his first season at Old Trafford with a trophy. As such, United cannot afford another repeat performance on Monday when they travel to League One side Preston in the fifth round. “We need to make sure that we come out of the blocks quickly against Preston,” Smalling added. “There is [more to come from us]. But If we can win games playing that badly, then it shows that if we do play well and it all clicks, then there will be a lot better performances at Old Trafford, that’s for sure.” The two positives for Smalling were the improvement of United’s play in the second half and the fact that he managed to get on the scoresheet twice. The defender is not used to scoring so much – this was his first career brace – but he was happy to find the net just 22 seconds after replacing Phil Jones, who hobbled off with a knee injury, and head United into 2-1 lead after Danny Ings’ equaliser. “It’s not something I’m used to, but because of our first-half performance I couldn’t get too overjoyed at half-time,” the United defender added. “From one to 11, I don’t think we were good enough, but it’s always nice to score. “It was great to get the (second) goal before half-time because I think that settled us, and we were more composed after the break. It was a lot better, and a bit more like Manchester United.” Van Gaal said he was worried that Jones is set for another lengthy layoff bu t the good news for United is that the head injury Daley Blind suffered in the first half was only minor and he looks set to feature against Preston. “In the last couple of games we’ve been able to have a fully-fit squad, so it’s unfortunate that we’ve picked up a couple of injuries,” Smalling said. “It seems that whenever someone comes back, another drops out. It’s been unfortunate, but hopefully they [Blind and Jones] won’t be out for long.” That was certainly the case against the Clarets, who passed the ball better and looked more incisive at Old Trafford in the first half even though their team cost a fraction of Van Gaal’s expensively-assembled starting XI. Van Gaal was unhappy with his team at half-time and the United boss made his players acutely aware of his feelings in the dressing room. “I think the manager was shocked at half-time,” Smalling said. “The manager said in the dressing room that the first half was unacceptable and all the players know that. “It wasn’t a 3-1 scoreline game. Especially in that first half, we all let ourselves down. We could have played much better. “That the first half was probably the worst we’ve had all season, we were lucky to go into the break with a lead. “We knew that it wasn’t good enough in the first half. We were lucky to get away with it, and we had to stand up and fight in the second-half.” Over the next 24 hours, Van Gaal is set to meet with the club’s co-chairmen Joel and Avram Glazer, who were at the Burnley match, to discuss plans for the summer. Press Association Louis van Gaal was “shocked” by Manchester United’s poor first-half performance against Burnley according to Chris Smalling, who labelled the display as their worst of the season. Smalling scored a brace and Robin van Persie converted an 82nd minute penalty on Wednesday as United beat Burnley to move up to third in the Barclays Premier League. Van Gaal’s team have lost just once in 18 matches but a section of United’s fan base is becoming dissatisfied with the team’s style of play, which is often laboured and unproductive.
ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, (CMC) – Trinidad and Tobago Red Force used an incisive bowling performance to take a firm grip on their sixth round game in the Regional four-day championship against Windward Islands Volcanoes here Saturday.On a rain-hit second day at the National Stadium here, the visitors sent Volcanoes tumbling for a paltry 104 all out, to secure a healthy first innings lead of 171 runs.At the close, Red Force were 23 for one – an overall lead of 194 runs heading into day three of the contest.Yannic Cariah had earlier recorded his maiden first class century as Red Force, resuming the day on 250 for seven, were dismissed for 275.The left-handed Cariah had retired hurt on 92 the previous evening and once he returned to the crease, he reached triple figures to end on 102 not out. All told, he faced 212 deliveries in just over 6-1/2 hours, striking eight fours and two sixes.Khary Pierre, unbeaten on 39 overnight, reached his maiden half-century in first class cricket before he was dismissed on exactly 50.Medium pacer Kyle Mayers added one wicket to his overnight tally to end with four for 24 while seamer Sherman Lewis claimed three for 53.Volcanoes then slumped to 11 for four and then 33 for six, a position from which they never recovered.They were rocked by Jamaican left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell who claimed three for 30 while pacer Marlon Richards took two for 14 and off-spinner Bryan Charles (2-22) and leg-spinner Imran Khan (2-28) two wickets apiece.Shane Shillingford top-scored with 34 and staged a rearguard effort in a 45-run, seventh wicket stand with Mayers who made 31.Once the stand was broken, Volcanoes lost their last four wickets for 26 runsRED FORCE 1st Innings(overnight 250 for seven)*K Hope c Theophile b Lewis 9J Solozano c wkp Ambris b Lewis 2I Rajah c Sebastian b Mayers 29N Alexis c Smith b Mayers 5Y Cariah not out 102Imran Khan lbw b Mayers 0+S Katwaroo c Smith b Peters 59K Pierre c Theophile b Lewis 50M Richards lbw Sebastien 0B Charles c wkp Ambris b Johnson 6S Cottrell b Mayers 0Extras (b3, lb9, w1) 13TOTAL (all out, 104 overs) 275Fall of wickets: 1-10, 2-20, 3-38, 4-57, 5-57, 6-171, 7-239, 8-257, 9-267, 10-275.Bowling: Johnson 19-6-34-1, Lewis 18-4-53-3 (w1), Peters 12-3-39-1, Mayers 15-5-24-4, Shillingford 23-6-42-0, Sebastien 17-0-71-1.VOLCANOES 1st InningsD Smith b Richards 3T Theophile c wkp Katwaroo b Cottrell 8T Gabriel c Solozano b Cottrell 0K Lesporis c wkp Katwaroo b Richards 0+S Ambris c Rajah b Charles 10*L Sebastien lbw b Cottrell 4K Mayers c Charles b Pierre 31S Shillingford lbw b Imran Khan 34D Johnson b Charles 7K Peters not out 3S Lewis lbw b I Khan 0Extras (lb4) 4TOTAL (all out, 46.5 overs) 104Fall of wickets: 1-11, 2-11, 3-11, 4-11, 5-21, 6-33, 7-78, 8-98, 9-104, 10-104.Bowling: Cottrell 9-2-30-3, Richards 11-4-14-2, Imran Khan 16.5-6-28-2, Charles 9-2-22-2, Pierre 1-0-6-1.RED FORCE 2nd Innings*K Hope not out 10J Solozano c Gabriel b Lewis 3I Rajah not out 6Extras (b4) 4TOTAL (1 wkt, 7 overs) 23Fall of wicket: 1-10.Bowling: Johnson 2-0-3-0, Lewis 2-1-7-1, Shillingford 2-0-9-0, Sebastien 1-1-0-0.Position: Red Force lead by 194 runs.
Comments Published on December 7, 2018 at 12:49 am Contact Arabdho: firstname.lastname@example.org | @aromajumder A Syracuse turnover in the defensive zone sent the puck to Colgate’s leading scorer, Jessie Eldridge, with an open slot in front of her. As she passed the hash marks, Eldridge released her shot, aiming for the top right corner. But SU goaltender Maddi Welch stood tall and used her blocker to turn the puck aside and into the corner, where it rolled into a scrum.Welch made 24 saves and gave up four goals in a 5-2 loss to Colgate (10-5-2, 5-2-1 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference) on Thursday night, including three in the first period. But the senior goalie was also a big reason Syracuse (4-13-1, 4-3 College Hockey America) hung around until late in the game against the No. 10 Raiders. The Orange defense conceded breakaways and multiple chances where Colgate players charged the net, but Welch preserved the two-goal deficit into the first intermission. “Despite the score, she’s been coming up huge for us, and I think it’s awesome to have her back there,” defenseman Allie Olnowich said. “…we know we can rely on her back there, and she’s really been stepping into the role.”SU head coach Paul Flanagan called the first period one of the worst he’s seen in his Syracuse tenure. Welch and the defense refocused to hold the Raiders to just two goals the rest of the way, one of which was an empty-netter.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWelch said the locker room was positive, even after the first, and answered back well in the second and third. For her specifically, it was about forgetting the past and looking ahead to stopping the next puck. “I just go over the goals in my head, and I can’t pull it back out and I can’t take it back, so it’s kind of one of those things where I have to move forward,” she said. Nemo Neubauerova had two nearly identical goals for Colgate in the first period to create its 3-1 lead. Both times, Syracuse was unable to clear the puck from in front of the net, and Neubauerova was left unchecked to finish the scoring chance. The defensive lapses came down to mental mistakes and not knowing the defensive zone coverage, Flanagan said. His system has the center shadow the opposition center, the strong side winger covering the point, the weak side winger staying in the middle, the strong side defender on the puck carrier and the weak side defender staying in front of the net. On one of the goals, Flanagan said four of the players didn’t do what they were supposed to do, and two players went out to cover the point. “That’s a defensive breakdown and it’s all up there,” Flanagan said, pointing to his head. “That’s not having the team prepared, and you’d like to think that after practice yesterday they’re ready to go, they’re prepared.”But it’s not all on the defense. Flanagan said Welch was frustrated after the game, and part of that was at letting in a soft goal off her mask short side. It was at a crucial point in the game as Syracuse had just scored to make it 3-2 and created momentum. But just a minute-and-a-half after Lauren Bellefontaine’s goal to pull within one, Eldridge skated in from the side boards and flipped the puck up and off Welch’s mask, into the top corner.“Things like that, she knows she’s got to get better at,” Flanagan said. “She’s working and I think she’s getting there. Just got to move forward with that.” Facebook Twitter Google+

Bursaspor of Turkey defender, William Troost-Ekong, has raised the ante of expectations ahead of the Super Eaglesâ€™ international friendly against Argentina tomorrow. He insists he is not scared of playing any team that comes his way as an opponent.Troost-Ekong who partnered Leon Balogun in Eagles central defence said that he and his Eaglesâ€™ colleagues would be able to handle any opposition during next yearâ€™s World Cup.The vastly-improved stopper, who is on loan from Gent of Belgium at the Turkish club, said playing against Argentina would accord the Nigerian squad a huge opportunity to show the stuff they are made of after finishing the Russia 2018 campaign unbeaten in a group tagged â€˜Group of Death.â€™ With that in view, Troost-Ekong declared that Argentina needs to give Nigeria same level of respect the Eagles are according them, but says that is not to suggest that he is scared of The Argies.Looking beyond Tuesdayâ€™s friendly, Troost-Ekong further said he is not scared of a potential clash with some heavyweight teams, like Brazil and Germany, when Nigeria knows her 2018 FIFA World Cup foes on December 1 during the draw in Zurich, Switzerland.Rather than feel cowed heading into his maiden outing at the Mundial, the 24-year-old former Dutch youth international and member of Nigeriaâ€™s bronze-winning Under-23 team at the Rio 2016 Olympics in Brazil fired warning to any team that comes the Eaglesâ€™ way.Troost-Ekong says he is happy that he opted to represent Nigeria at senior level in 2015, as the ex-Tottenham Hotspur of England youth team player has waxed stronger with 15 caps and has been shortlisted for the African Player of the Year award.He said: â€œI am not scared to play against any team. But, of course, we hope for a favourable draw. We have to believe in ourselves just like we did in the qualifying campaign.â€œMany doubted us winning a group with Cameroon and Algeria, and look where that got us! The experience garnered playing for the Super Eagles has been life-changing for me.â€œFacing some of the best forwards in Africa, whilst having to perform and deliver for such a football-loving nation like Nigeria is a pressure that improves you as a player.â€œI enjoy being with the team and working with quality players. Playing alongside someone like Leon Balogun with his quality has definitely helped, but I would feel just comfortable playing next to anyone now.â€Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Suffered “stomach issues” Chen did not give a cause of death but said Lindo had suffered “stomach issues” for some time. He was recently admitted to hospital after feeling ill.Lindo started his career as a schoolboy at Studio One in the early 1970s. Some of the early songs of note he played on were Dennis Brown’s Money in my Pocket, produced by Derrick Harriott and Games People Play, a big hit for Bob Andy at Federal Records. By Howard CampbellEarl ‘Wya’ Lindo, a keyboardist who was a longstanding member of The Wailers band, died at a London hospital on September 4 at age 64.Lennie Chen, who manages The Wailers, confirmed the death in an interview with Caribbean National Weekly. The late Wailer became an in-demand session player with the Now Generation Band that included fellow keyboardist Robbie Lyn and the Chung brothers, Mikey and Geoffrey. Recorded/toured with Bob MarleyLindo recorded and toured with Marley during the 1970s when the singer’s career was in high gear. He played on Burnin’ and Survival, two of Marley’s albums for Island Records. Experiencing working with MarleyIn an interview with American Mike Gorney, Lindo recalled what it was like working with Marley. “That was like original, authentic, kind of ingenious, the days of the genius, clouding up the studio. It was a real sensational thing. It was un-commercial to me. I mean, I flipped over it. I was crazy about it, but I didn’t know that there was any group that was experimenting. Doing experimental music. What do you call it –the hippie revolution”, he said.The lanky musician had a long struggle with drug addiction which curtailed his career.Chen said Lindo last played with The Wailers in March in London when the grouped toured the United Kingdom.
