Gabi plays the underdog role ahead of Bayern Munich clash

first_img Gabi believes Pep Guardiola will have set Bayern up perfectly and it’s up to Atletico to turn in a great display to survive. 26/04/2016 at 20:28 Gabi tried to play down Atletico Madrid’s chances against Bayern Munich, saying his team aren’t on the same level. Just like his boss, Diego Simeone, the midfielder clearly likes being the underdog.  “Atleti know what we’re playing tomorrow, not just to get to the final, we’re playing for a chance to enter the club’s history and the fans will respond to this.” CEST “I have no doubt that Guardiola has prepped them in the right way and he’ll put his best side out. “They’re so good, they have so many choices. It’s more a solution than a problem. We’ll play against the best, alongside Barca they’re the favourites.  “We don’t hide anything and we never give in and we will try to get to the final, but we’re not on the level of Real Madrid, Barça, and Bayern.” “We know we aren’t favourites before the season. We’re competing with the favourites,” he said. Sport ENlast_img read more

Stalemate satisfaction – KC, STGC coaches happy with draw, as C’down and ‘Trinity’ secure big wins

first_img Keenly contested “It was a good game between both teams. It will impact our team positively,” said Bernard. “We played a good game and got a favourable result.” “That (a point) was not what I wanted, but we have to be grateful for what we got,” Bernard said. Gayle also thinks that a point was a favourable return for his team. “It was a satisfying result for us based on the performance of the guys because I thought they played well and they followed instructions right through the game,” said Gayle. “It was a derby game and probably we could have done some things differently, but we didn’t wanted to lose and neither did KC and so I think it was a fair result and we will take this going forward,” said Gayle, whose team will face Camperdown in their next game on Saturday. Meanwhile, Camperdown took early control of the group following their stunning come-from-behind 3-2 win over Charlie Smith in the opening game of the double-header. The Christopher Bender-coached team went into half-time trailing 2-0 after Kemoy Bailey (36th) and Renoldo Cephas (37th) sent Jerome Waite’s boys in control of the fixture. However, a penalty from Jeovanni Laing (56th) and strikes from Renaldo Edwards (67th) and Ziddon Braithwaite (88th), ensured that the boys from East Kingston would secure an important win ahead of their assignments with the KC and St George’s.Meanwhile, in Group G, defending champions Jamaica College were held to a 0-0 draw by St Andrew Technical in a repeat of last year’s final, while Holy Trinity clipped Wolmer’s 2-1. robert.bailey@gleanerjm.com Ludlow Bernard, head coach of Kingston College (KC) and Marcel Gayle, assistant coach of St George’s College (StGC), were both satisfied with the performance of their respective teams, after their 0-0 stalemate in Group H ISSA/Digicel Manning Cup quarter-final action at Stadium East yesterday. Where the North Street Derby failed to thrill, Camperdown and Charlie Smith certainly provided excitement by the ton in the earlier kick-off, with Camperdown rallying to win 3-2, while elsewhere, another high profile clash – Jamaica College vs St Andrew Technical, also failed to produce any goals. The KC/StGC contest failed in large part to live up to its billing, given the expectations around a gifted KC unit and a St George’s College team that, despite losing some of its shine over the last couple seasons, remain local schoolboy football royalty. The first half was evenly contested with both teams cancelling out each other at both ends of the field, with scoring opportunities at a premium. KC’s best scoring chance in the first half fell at the feet of Trevyon Reid, but his shot from 10-yards out, went wide of the target. Nathaniel Campbell received the Light Blues’ best opportunity in the first stanza, but his 25-yards free-kick was tipped over the crossbar by custodian Chadeen Rodriques, as both teams went throughout the majority of the game seemingly more concerned about not losing, rather being determined to win. Despite the lack of goals, Bernard believes his team played a tactically-sound game and says they are now looking forward to their next encounter on Saturday against Charlie Smith.last_img read more

Reggae Girlz held to draw by South Africa

Reggae Girlz held to draw by South Africa

first_imgJamaica’s Reggae Girlz played out a measured 1-1 draw with South Africa in a friendly international at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa on Sunday.  Star striker Khadija Shaw produced a moment of brilliance in the 58th minute, beating four defenders before slotting home to secure the equaliser for the Jamaicans, who had fallen behind in the 26th minute, when Linda Motlhalo capitalised on an error from Jamaican skipper Konya Plummer to send the hosts in front.  Both teams were continuing their preparation ahead of their first appearances at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France in June, with the South Africans using the game as a farewell to their nation ahead of their training camp. Shaw, thanked the hosts for their welcome and said she and her team-mates knew coming into the game that they would face a tough opponent.  “South Africa is a very organised team and they are also pretty physical so we knew it would be a tough game but we came and did what we had to do,” said Shaw.  “It wasn’t the best performance from us but at half-time we talked about it and we knew we had to relax. The crowd was of course behind South Africa and we were playing too slow in the first half. But we want to thank South Africa for having us here, they treated us really well and it was a great experience,” said Shaw. The Jamaicans will continue their preparations against Panama on May 19 at the National Stadium before facing Scotland on May 27 in Scotland.  The Reggae Girlz have been drawn in Group C at the FIFA Women’s World Cup alongside Brazil, Italy and Australia. They will get their campaign started on June 9 against Brazil. They will play Italy on June 14 and Australia on June 18.last_img read more

Reputed Klansman convicted in deaths

Reputed Klansman convicted in deaths

first_imgJACKSON, Miss. – A federal jury on Thursday convicted reputed Klansman James Ford Seale of kidnapping and conspiracy in the 1964 deaths of two black teenagers in southwest Mississippi. Seale, 71, had pleaded not guilty to charges related to the deaths of Charles Eddie Moore and Henry Hezekiah Dee. The 19-year-olds disappeared from Franklin County on May 2, 1964, and their bodies were found later in the Mississippi River. Federal prosecutors indicted Seale in January almost 43 years after the slayings. When he is sentenced Aug. 24, he faces life in prison on the two counts of kidnapping and one count of conspiracy. The prosecution’s star witness was Charles Marcus Edwards, a confessed Klansman. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hollywood writers to strike

Hollywood writers to strike

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Still, alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers president Nick Counter released a statement indicating a strike could still be averted. “We are ready to meet and are prepared to close this contract this weekend,” he said. The strike, threatened to resolve a dispute over royalties, could cost more than $1billion in lost wages, experts said. “You could have a very localized recession,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist at the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp. But that’s only if the strike drags on for two or three months. David Smith, an associate dean at the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University, agreed. “It’s not a strong possibility right now but something to keep on the radar screen,” Smith said. A five-month strike like one in 1988, which cost $500million in lost wages, would easily amount to between $1billion and $2billion in lost wages now, Kyser said. A contract covering 12,000 workers expired late Wednesday night without a new deal. Members have already voted – by a 9:1 ratio – to let leaders call a strike if negotiations fail. In 2001, actors worked for two months without a contract, but it’s unclear whether writers will go that route. At issue is how writers will be paid for new media such as DVD sales and digital downloads and how writers for reality shows should be compensated. Both sides are gearing for a fight. If a strike comes, television viewers will immediately notice a difference. Late-night talk shows that feed off current events and require fresh writing will go dark immediately. Production of television dramas and comedies such as “Heroes” and “Ugly Betty” will grind to a halt, but studios that have stockpiled episodes will continue to shoot and air them. Reality shows and commercials, however, will continue uninterrupted. The motion picture industry is the third-largest employer in the county and a strike would reach far beyond a picket line of writers. The industry’s lucrative salaries mean that one entertainment job supports or creates 1.5 nonentertainment jobs. Businesses that feed off studio salaries, such as restaurants in Studio City and Burbank, are already hurting. The wait for a table at Lala’s Argentine Grill in Studio City, which is around the corner from CBS, has dropped noticeably. During the lunch rush, hungry diners used to wait 20 minutes. Now, it’s no more than five. “Three weeks ago or four weeks ago it slowed down really bad,” said manager Dario Sedani. “We are selling half of what we used to sell.” At Big Screen Cuisine in Burbank, owner Scott Floman is bracing for the worst. “If they strike, it’s going to definitely take a turn into our business,” Floman said. About 70percent of his catering sales come from feeding staffers on the set of movies and television shows. If a strike comes, Floman immediately will ask his head chef to “go lean and mean” with the staff, cutting back their hours so he does not have to let anybody go. Elected officials have mostly stayed away from the dispute. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa talked with both sides but has not intervened in any way, spokesman Gil Duran said. “The mayor does not want to see any kind of strike and he has offered to help in any way to mediate the differences,” Duran said. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger brushed off the strike, saying he does not currently plan to intervene. The negotiations fall under federal, not state, law under the National Labor Relations Board, said Schwarzenegger spokeswoman Sabrina Lockhart. “We are monitoring, but aren’t involved in any active role at this point,” Lockhart said. “This is an important industry and the administration hopes that both parties can work things out.” Staff Writers David Kronke, Harrison Sheppard and Rick Orlov and the Associated Press contributed to this report.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Television and movie screen writers said Thursday they will go on strike for the first time in nearly 20 years, which economists said could push the San Fernando Valley into a recession if it lasts for several months. Four writers told The Associated Press that Writers Guild of America President Patric Verrone made the announcement in a closed-door session Thursday night, prompting loud cheers from the crowd. “There was a unified feeling in the room. I don’t think anyone wants the strike, but people are behind the negotiation committee,” said writer Dave Garrett. Writers were expected to announce when the strike would begin sometime Friday. last_img read more

Mission’s new impact report set for release

Mission’s new impact report set for release

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’After having to abandon a land swap with Los Angeles County and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, college district officials want to obtain 10 acres, some through eminent domain – a process in which a public or private entity is given legal power to acquire private property for the public good. That land runs next to other property owned by a church, which college officials hope will accept a replacement property. “We looked for nearby property because we wanted to have a consolidated college, not a split one,” said Larry Eisenberg, the district’s executive director for facilities management. The swath at Eldridge Avenue and Harding Street along Maclay Street was once owned by two churches. The Pentecostal Church sold its land to Comstock Homes, while the other piece is still owned by St. Ephraim’s Syrian Church, Eisenberg said. Comstock plans to use its land to develop 42 single-family homes, company officials have said. SYLMAR – A revised environmental impact report on expansion plans at Los Angeles Mission College will be released Thursday, giving the public a chance to take a look at possible construction on the campus. The public has 45 days to comment on the report, which will include impacts on traffic in the surrounding neighborhood and potential job growth that could provide an economic shot in the arm for the area. Under the plans, 10 acres still being pursued by the district would be used for a health and fitness center, classrooms and a parking garage for the 7,300-student, 22-year-old campus. But a good chunk of the plans are based on land acquisitions still not finalized, officials said. The Sylmar campus is under a tight deadline to begin construction because its funding comes from the college’s $176 million share of the $2.2 billion from propositions A and AA construction bond funds passed in 2001 and 2003, respectively. Construction must begin by April, Eisenberg said. Before that, the environmental impact report must receive input from the public and approval by the Los Angeles Community College District’s board of trustees. Bids for contractors also must be selected and approved. Mission is the smallest and newest of the nine Los Angeles Community College District campuses. It opened in 1991. susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664 TO LEARN MORE An environmental impact report based on expansion plans for Los Angeles Mission College will be available to the public Thursday at local public libraries and on the college s Web site at www.lamission.edu.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Scottish FA to appeal Fifa fine over poppy armbands

Scottish FA to appeal Fifa fine over poppy armbands

first_imgSFA chief executive Stewart Regan had previously vowed to challenge any sanction, saying he believed there had been no breach of the rules and pointed to a previous example of armbands being permitted. A brief statement from the SFA read: “We have received written reasons from Fifa’s disciplinary committee relating to the sanction imposed for commemorating Remembrance Day during the England v Scotland World Cup qualifier on November 11, 2016.“Having considered those reasons in full, we have informed Fifa of our intention to appeal the decision.”At the time of Fifa’s verdict and the decision to fine both the Scottish and English FAs, Fifa’s disciplinary chairman Claudio Sulser said: “With these decisions, it is not our intention to judge or question specific commemorations as we fully respect the significance of such moments in the respective countries, each one of them with its own history and background.“However, keeping in mind that the rules need to be applied in a neutral and fair manner across Fifa’s 211 member associations, the display, among others, of any political or religious symbol is strictly prohibited. In the stadium and on the pitch, there is only room for sport, nothing else.” The Scottish FA has notified Fifa of its intention to appeal against a fine for the squad wearing poppy armbands during a World Cup qualifier against England.The national association was fined £15,700 for players wearing the armbands and for fans booing England’s national anthem.Armbands were worn throughout the 3-0 defeat at Wembley on Armistice Day last year despite warnings that it could be seen as a breach of Fifa rules regarding political statements or messages.After receiving a detailed ruling from Fifa, the SFA has confirmed that it will contest the fine and STV understands the appeal is likely to centre on the definition of a political symbol.last_img read more
