AVB confident ahead of European clash

by ,

first_imgUnder-fire Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas insists his team’s disappointing recent results will not affect morale ahead of their Champions League clash with Napoli.A league defeat at Everton and a draw at home to Championship side Birmingham in the FA Cup did nothing to ease the pressure on Villas-Boas, who was barracked by Blues fans during both games.Those performances have led to speculation that another loss could prompt Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to wield the axe.AdChoices广告But Villas-Boas is in defiant mood ahead of the trip to Naples for Tuesday’s first leg.He declared: “The players will have a different outlook. It is a European game and the Champions League is a competition that everybody wants to win.“It’s important for us to be competent and to bring the game back to Stamford Bridge with a win or draw – ideally a scoring draw – and then we can finish the business.”Villas-Boas has hinted that he will be without injured skipper John Terry and is expected to replace Fernando Torres with Didier Drogba.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Neymar vs Cavani: The Battle for Supremacy

by ,

first_imgThough Manager Unai Emery has told them to sort out the issue, it doesn’t seem like the situation has improved. Alarmingly for everyone associated with PSG, there are reports that in the dressing room after the match, things were close to getting physical between the South American pair.An altercation between the two took place, with Cavani unhappy with the way Neymar conducted himself. Captain Thiago Silva was said to have intervened to defuse the tension.While both players along with Kylian Mbappe, have developed a strong understanding and formed a fearsome attacking trio that has scored 16 goals so far this term, the dispute is a major cause for concern and doesn’t exactly bode well for team spirit.In a classic case of modern football, it soon came to light that Neymar has unfollowed Cavani on Instagram as a result of the disagreement, while after the game, the former Napoli man made a decision to rush out of the Parc des Princes and avoid what would have been intense questions from journalists in the mixed zone about the incident.The Brazil superstar now wants to win the Ballon d’Or after leaving Barcelona. When Neymar joined Barcelona in 2013, Johan Cruyff could see trouble ahead. “I wouldn’t put two captains on the same boat,” he said referring to the Brazilian joining the same team as Lionel Messi. “You have to learn from the past on this one.”For once, the great man was wrong. Neymar and Messi got on well that they both paid gushing tributes to each other when they parted company this summer.However, it’s unlikely to be that way when Cavani inevitably leaves Paris Saint-Germain – Neymar has already stopped following him on Twitter and he passed to him just twice in the weekend game against Lyon. Cavani didn’t pass to Neymar at all, and by all accounts went for him in the dressing room after the game.There are two differences between PSG in 2017 and Barcelona in 2013: Cavani is not Messi, and the Neymar of four years ago is not the Neymar of now.Messi can be as self-centred as the next superstar but it’s also true that by genius standards, he has a remarkably underdeveloped ego, and Neymar benefited from that.At the end of the 2014-15 season, Barcelona were thrashing Cordoba 6-0 and Messi, on a hat-trick, let Neymar take a penalty because the Brazilian hadn’t scored yet. It was typical of his attitude during their four seasons playing together.Whenever they played weak opposition, Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez would make an effort to ensure all three get on the scoresheet. In closer, more difficult games when Messi felt that his aim was off and that Neymar was turning everything he touched into gold, then he would step aside and let the Brazilian be the protagonist.In last season’s comeback against PSG at the Nou Camp it wouldn’t have entered Messi’s head to push Neymar to one side for that late free-kick and even later penalty.Neymar was also very keen to show that he had not come to rip Messi’s crown off his head even though succession was his long-term idea.On the day of his presentation, he said, “I’ve never worried about being the best in the world. The best is already here and he’s Messi, who cannot be compared with anybody. I am one of the luckiest men in the world to be able to play alongside him and learn from him. I have come to help him stay as the best and to win many more trophies.” It may well have been as premeditated and scripted as his speech in Catalan that day but it played out just as he said he wanted it to. Messi stayed No 1 and Neymar helped him.Clearly, he has not gone to PSG to help Cavani remain the main man at the Parc des Princes. The Uruguayan is perhaps the bigger fool for not realising that if the £198 million man wants to take the half-time team talks as well as all the free-kicks and penalties, he is going to be allowed to.And there is one more big difference between PSG and Barcelona. At Barca, Neymar had his band of brothers off the pitch, at PSG he has one on the pitch too.In Spain, the so-called “Toiss” never left Neymar’s side. This group of friends from Brazil was with him from his presentation in 2013 to his last day in Barcelona when they all went to get tattoos in the city – each one got a letter tattooed on to his wrist that when the group stand together and put their arms out spells “amigos.”Several “Toiss” even went on the club flight to the US for the pre-season tour, much to the annoyance of some of the club’s directors – especially the ones who knew Neymar was going to leave the club before the season started.Despite the social entourage, on the pitch he was increasingly isolated. He stayed with friends like Messi and Suarez but the Brazilian quota in the squad seemed to go down every year and he was left sitting next to reserve team right back, Douglas, on flights to games.He wanted Brazilian players brought to the club and the signings of Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho were both linedup with his desire to have his own gang very much in mind.Barca followed through on Paulinho, and tried to get Coutinho, despite Neymar’s departure.At PSG, he has Marquinhos, Lucas Moura, Thiago Silva and Dani Alves. He doesn’t have to take the ball off Cavani because Alves will do it for him.He’s the prince of Paris now; he has his court, his royal protector in the shape of club president, Nasser Al Khelaifi, and unless Cavani starts playing like Messi, he has little choice but to dance to Neymar’s tune.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Neymar’s record £200 million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain will be topical for a long time, to establish himself as the Prince of Parc des Princes, which  have pitched him against Edinson Cavani. Kunle Adewale reportsW ith four goals and four assists in three league matches, Neymar has so far lived up to expectation of  fans that troop out  to the Parc des Princes every weekend to watch the most expensive footballer in the world. Last Sunday, against Olympique Lyonnais, a side that has yet to taste defeat in the Ligue 1 six-week old league, football analysts felt it was the real test for PSG and indeed Neymar and they were not disappointed as the match lived up to expectations, but not without controversies with Neymar and Edinson Cavani trying to establish themselves as to who really is in charge at Parc des Princes.Before the arrival of the golden boy of Brazilian football, Cavani was the undisputed penalty taker, but Neymar was ready to prove that he has come to take charge. The two argued over who should take a penalty in their toughest test of the season so far against Lyon, with PSG maintaining their perfect start to the season with a 2-0 win – though it wasn’t their most convincing performance and both goals came from Lyon players as Marcelo and Jeremy Morel deflected shots from Cavani and Mbappe late on.The main talking point was the squabble between Cavani and Neymar, who for the second time in his stint in Paris, attempted to take a penalty. He was unsuccessful again, as Cavani took charge his effort was saved by Anthony Lopes.There was also an incident where Cavani wanted to take a free-kick and Dani Alves nabbed the ball off him, and gave it to Neymar.last_img read more

CSA provides boxed fresh produce for USC students

by ,

first_imgDespite the common perception of college food consisting of ramen noodles, soda and junk food, USC students actually have the option of eating farm fresh produce delivered directly to campus.Boxed goods · The South Central Farmers organization currently offers boxes of organic food for students to pick up at the JEP House. – Joseph Chen | Daily TrojanIn addition to the grocery stores that surround the university, USC students can participate in the South Central Farmers produce delivery program.“It is very hard to get fresh produce in Los Angeles, and I have found that these fruits and vegetables are incredibly fresh,” said Joshua Bernstein, a graduate student studying philosophy, who ordered a box this week.“This is a really unique program, and I hope that USC continues to have it,” he said.USC is one of the locations the South Central Farmers Coop, a community-supported agriculture group, drops off boxes of organic produce at on a weekly basis. Susan Harris, the program director for South Central Farmers at USC, estimates the program has had a pickup location at USC for around five years. USC students can order either a full box or a mini box of organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables and pick them up at the Joint Educational Project House on Wednesdays between 2 and 6 p.m. The boxes cost between $15 and $25 a week, and all the produce is farm-fresh and locally produced.Though many students are not aware of it, the program has gotten some attention recently. Earlier this month, the delivery program  was featured in Undergraduate Student Government’s weekly newsletter.Community supported agriculture, better known as CSA, is a relatively new concept  in farming that has been gaining momentum since its introduction to the United States in the mid-1980s. The South Central Farmers CSA is a nonprofit organization that is “committed to engaging and empowering community members around attaining food sovereignty and access to high quality organic produce,” according to the group’s website.USC is not the only university South Central Farmers delivers to — the group also has three pickup centers at UCLA. Other locations the group delivers to range across Los Angeles, from the Beverly Hills Farmers Market to the Watts Farmers Market.Since Harris took over coordination for the USC campus in 2010, she estimates students have ordered between three and 12 individual boxes each week.“We have several students who regularly buy boxes every week and are very happy to have this service provided conveniently on campus,” Harris said. “I believe it could be a much bigger program.”Advertising could be part of the reason the program has remained relatively small. Many students said they were not aware of it.“I hadn’t heard of it before,” said Jade Rechler, a freshman majoring in broadcast and digital journalism. “But it sounds like a really great program that I would love to learn more about.”Others agreed that the CSA is something they might be interested in subscribing to.“This seems like an awesome program for students at USC, so hopefully it will gain more traction and recognition on campus,” said Rachel Ben-Menachem, a freshman majoring in theatre.

first_imgFormer Ghana captain Stephen Appiah says he is ready to accept an official role with the Black Stars team at 2014 World Cup.Some sections of the Ghanaian public have been craving for the inclusion of the former Juventus star in the official Ghana delegation at next year’s tournament in Brazil.Appiah remains famous for his inspirational role in leading Ghana to its first ever World Cup in 2006.He again played an integral leadership role in the Black Stars team at the 2010 World Cup – though most of his works was done behind the scenes as John Mensah led the team on the field of play.And with over six month’s towards another Ghana campaign at the World Cup, the ex Ghana international says he will welcome any role offered him by the Ghana FA in order to also contribute his quota in another success story in Brazil.“I will love to do that if indeed the Ghana Football Association approach me for the role, am still a footballer and when you get a role like this in a major World Cup like the upcoming once it will just be awesome or me,” Appiah said. “I know almost all of the players who played in the qualifiers, I played with Gyan, Sulley and most of the players.“Playing in a World Cup is different from playing for your club in a league game or even the African Cup of Nations.“You need somebody who has been there before to advice and straighten the younger ones and if I’m given the opportunity why will I turn it down? I will defiantly help my team.”last_img read more

Parma president arrested on money-laundering charges

by ,

first_imgParma’s chairman was arrested on Wednesday on money-laundering charges, police sources said, deepening the crisis at the financially stricken Italian club which is on the brink of having to stop playing.The arrest of Giampietro Manenti came on the eve of a bankruptcy hearing which could result in the club being wound up and prevented from completing the rest of its Serie A fixtures.Prosecutors were due to give details of the charges against Manenti at a press conference later in the day.The club has already been docked a total of three points this season over its failure to pay players’ wages on time.Former president Tommaso Ghirardi and club official Pietro Leonardi were both given four-month bans by league disciplinary officials on Friday.Although there is little doubt that the club is effectively bankrupt, it has been offered a lifeline by the Italian professional football league (Lega), which has offered to lend it five million euros to see out the rest of the season. It is uncertain however that this will be regarded as sufficient: the club is said to be 100 million euros ($113 million) in debt with some 17 million euros owed to the tax authorities.If Parma do drop out of this season’s league, all previous results stand and future results are recorded as a 3-0 win to the opposition.last_img read more

To bat flip or not to bat flip?

by ,

first_imgNEW YORK — Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says this generation of players will make its own unwritten rules on what emotion is acceptable to show on the field.Hall of Famer Goose Gossage, a New York Yankees spring training instructor, criticized Toronto star Jose Bautista last month for his bat flip during last year’s playoffs, telling ESPN he was “a disgrace to the game.” The 64-year-old, who pitched in the major leagues from 1972-94, also told ESPN that Washington’s Bruce Harper “doesn’t know squat about the game … no respect for it.” “I think to the extent that you believe, and I actually do, that Bryce Harper is a spokesman for this generation, I suspect that you will see more exuberance from our players on the field,” Manfred said Thursday during a meeting with the Associated Press Sports Editors. “I think it’s a good thing. I think that to the extent that you’re trying to market to a younger audience, our younger players taking control of the definition of those unwritten rules is a lot better than some guy who’s 67 years saying I did it that way and you ought do it the same way.” Bautista memorably flipped his bat after hitting a three-run homer that gave the Blue Jays the lead in the seventh inning in Game 5 of the AL Division Series against Texas.“He’s entitled to have his opinion. I don’t happen to agree with him on this particular topic,” Manfred said of Gossage. “Goose and his peers developed a set of unwritten understandings about what was acceptable on the field when he played the game, and I think the generation of players that are on the field today are going to do the same thing. I think that it may not be exactly the same as it was when Goose played, and you know, from my perspective that’s good thing.”Manfred said any cultural differences between players raised in the U.S. and those in Latin America over what is acceptable will be worked out.“The various groups that participate on the field are going to have to work through a middle ground,” he said. “I do believe our players understand diversity and that even though there may be differences along these lines, they will find a way to a middle ground that’s acceptable to the vast majority of those players.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Who made baseball great again this year and who didn’t

by ,

first_imgMis-Manager of the Year: Robin Ventura of the White Sox gets that A.L. distinction, which coincided with a pink slip. It’s hard to figure how Cincinnati’s Bryan Price keeps his post.Execu-Stiff of the Year: Honestly, Oakland’s Billy Beane makes it impossible not to pile on. He should get a Series share from the Cubs for Addison Russell alone. In the N.L., Arizona’s Dave Stewart has already been fired, primarily for trading a boatload of prospects to Atlanta for Shelby Miller.Comedown Player: Dallas Keuchel, last year’s Cy Young Award winner, went 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA for Houston. In the N.L., former MVP Andrew McCutchen never got it in gear, with a .766 OPS for Pittsburgh.Best Trade: Mark Trumbo led the A.L. with 47 home runs. Baltimore got him from Seattle in exchange for Steve Clevenger, a backup, hate-tweeting catcher. In the N.L., Milwaukee gave up minor leaguer Cy Sneed to Houston and got shortstop Jonathan Villar, who hit .285 and led the league with 62 steals.Best Free Agent: Daniel Murphy basically re-created October of 2015 for six months after he signed with Washington, which passed the Mets to win the N.L. East. Oakland signed Rich Hill for $6 million, and he was brilliant for the A’s and Dodgers.Worst Free Agent: Zack Greinke was part of the mudslide in Arizona, after he signed a $206 million deal. Detroit got only 19 starts and nine wins out of Jordan Zimmermann before he broke down.Injury of the Year: Third baseman Mike Moustakas (torn ACL) played only 24 games for Kansas City. The Cardinals’ Matt Holliday (broken thumb) was out from early August to late September when they needed a wild-card boost.Wind Farm of the Year: Goes to the players whose strikeouts don’t match up with their homers. Tampa Bay’s Steven Souza stirred up the air 159 times and produced only 17 homers. Cesar Hernandez of the Phillies went deep six times and struck out 116 times.Tractor-Trailer of the Year: The Orioles had six triples all season.Silly Sullivan Award: For the fastest finishers. Cincinnati’s Joey Votto hit .408 after the All-Star Game and was on base 49 percent of the time. Minnesota’s Brian Dozier bashed 28 homers and hit .646.Early line for 2017: Cleveland over Cubs, in 6. Rookie of the Year: The Dodgers’ Kyle Seager was headed for it anyway and clinched it when Colorado’s Trevor Story went down. In the A.L, the Tigers got Michael Fulmer from the Mets for Yoenis Cespedes, and Fulmer had a 3.06 ERA in Detroit’s rotation.Manager of the Year: Everyone considers Dave Roberts the shoo-in because he handled the Dodgers’ chaos so efficiently, but the Mets’ Terry Collins endured severe wreckage and still got to the playoffs, if only for one night. Dusty Baker was pretty good for the Nationals, too. Cleveland’s Terry Francona never had Michael Brantley, his best player, and then lost two starting pitchers, but never blinked, so his team didn’t.Executive of the Year: The Rangers’ Jon Daniels was brilliant, again, at the trade deadline. As for the N.L., they might name this award after Theo Epstein some day, although Jed Hoyer is the nominal G.M. for the Cubs.Comeback Player: The Rangers’ Ian Desmond improved his OPS by 108 points and learned a new position (center field) as well. Joe Blanton, the Dodgers’ setup man, gave up 55 hits in 80 innings, just two years after retirement.Breakout Player: At 23, Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez hit .312 with 46 doubles and carried it into the postseason. Giants refugee Adam Duvall slammed 33 home runs with 103 RBI for Cincinnati and gets the N.L. honor over Jake Lamb (Arizona) and Jonathan Villar (Milwaukee). Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img One man’s one vote on the upcoming baseball awards. No exit polling required:Best Player Who Mattered: Just a little sharper definition on the Most Valuable Player award. Kris Bryant’s versatility gives him a slight edge over teammate Anthony Rizzo in the National League, although Dexter Fowler will be undervalued in the actual voting. David Ortiz was the only A.L. player who compiled an OPS over 1.000 and led the league in doubles and slugging percentage and tied for first in RBI. If a pitcher can win it, why not a DH?Best Player Who Didn’t Matter: Mike Trout in the A.L., Nolan Arenado in the N.L. They shined through their incompetent surroundings. Call it the Ernie Banks Award.Cy Young Award: Max Scherzer, leader in wins and strikeouts, gets the N.L. version by a tick over Kyle Hendricks. In the A.L., it’s Zach Britton, the Baltimore closer, unless you have a problem with perfect. He was 47-for-47 in saves.last_img read more
