Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said Manchester United’s important players were “in our pockets” in a match that went “exactly” as they wanted.The Blues boss says his side have “almost” won the Premier League title after their 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge moved them 10 points clear at the top.United dominated possession and had more chances than the league leaders.Mourinho said: “We prepared for it to be like this. It was the game we wanted and expected.”Chelsea will be champions if they win at Arsenal and Leicester in their next two matches, having beaten third-placed United with a first-half goal from Eden Hazard.Visiting manager Louis van Gaal said it was his side’s “best display of the season” but Mourinho insists it was part of the game plan. “It was difficult, but less than you think,” he said. “Control their direct football to Marouane Fellaini and control the wingers from making crosses on the inside foot.”When we know Wayne Rooney plays in midfield, we control his progression into the box. Control set-pieces and don’t give away direct free-kicks as they have three specialists.”Wait for a mistake and score a goal. We were able to make their important players disappear. Nobody saw them. They were in our pockets.”United went into the match knowing they needed to win for the first time in five league visits to Chelsea to have any realistic hope of winning the title.But, despite big celebrations at the end of the match, Mourinho was careful to point out his side are not champions yet. “We are not celebrating,” he said. “Football is not about ‘ifs’ and ‘almosts’, it is about mathematics. When it is done, it is done, and until that moment we don’t celebrate.”The celebration is because we have beaten one of the biggest clubs in the world. The celebration is because they have everything to win that game and the result is because of the work they did all week to prepare for this game.”I feel we are almost there but there are no ‘almosts’ in football.”
QPR struggled to create chances against Blackburn and then missed two sitters, with Matt Phillips and Charlie Austin failing to finish.

BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LATEST STORIES Though San Sebastian evened its standing at 6-6, it should find a way to be more consistent if it wants to break its three-year Final Four drought this season.And the only solution for that to happen is for guys like Navarro to churn out solid numbers to compliment the stable showing of Michael Calisaan.5. Rey Nambatac – G, Letran Knights19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 assistsLast Week: N/AOnce again, Rey Nambatac showed that he can be a threat for Letran with or without the ball.The senior guard allowed his teammates to shine in the Knights’ 84-73 win over Arellano on Tuesday.But with Letran seeking revenge against first round tormentor Mapua, Nambatac exploded for 17 first half points to steer his side to an 88-79 victory, enough for it to once again get itself in the conversation as one of the favorites to snare those last two spots.6. Kent Salado – G, Arellano Chiefs23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.5 stealsLast Week: 6For the third straight week, Kent Salado has found himself still at the sixth spot of this list.That’s what you get after another even week despite another solid showing.Salado’s numbers weren’t enough for Arellano to pull off a triumph against Letran on Tuesday, losing 73-84, but with Michael Cañete providing the much needed support, the Chiefs halted their two-game slide on Friday and remained alive in the playoff race. CJ Perez remains a force to be reckoned with for Lyceum, and his greatness is underscored with his supporting cast also delivering.The energetic forward showed that there’s no such thing as a second round slump for him, getting his bearings back to do it all for the Pirates in their 94-83 win over Perpetual.Lyceum may have clinched a twice-to-beat in the Final Four, but Perez knows there the tougher wars still ahead and their 13-0 record won’t mean nothing if the Pirates don’t get the job done in the playoffs.3. Javee Mocon – F, San Beda Red Lions19 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assistsLast Week: 2Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJust like Perez for Lyceum, Javee Mocon’s performance was once again the catalyst in helping San Beda notch its 11th straight victory.The hardworking forward’s performance should largely be credited in keeping the Red Lions in the thick of things, especially after their gritty 65-60 victory over JRU on Friday.But Mocon shouldn’t be alone in hoisting the flag for the Mendiola crew, and coach Boyet Fernandez needs Robert Bolick to rekindle his thunder if San Beda dreams of retaining its NCAA title again later this season.4. Renzo Navarro – G, San Sebastian Golden Stags16 points (5/6 3PT), 3 assistsLast Week: N/ARenzo Navarro. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netThe littlest man of the court once again made the biggest impact in the clutch for San Sebastian as Renzo Navarro took the spotlight for his side.The diminutive guard waxed hot from downtown, going on a near-perfect clip as he unfurled 12 of his 16 points to aid the Golden Stags nab the huge 73-61 win over St. Benilde. Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients Just when you thought there’d finally be some clarity in the NCAA, the Final Four race just got more muddled.Pacesetters Lyceum and San Beda have now clinched their respective seats in the semifinals, while cellar dweller Mapua has been the first team to get the boot in the tourney.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut the seven other teams still have a crack at the last two spots, with a bounce here and a run there potentially deciding who will make it to the next round.Before that, let’s first take a loot at this week’s best seven players in the NCAA.1. Bong Quinto – F, Letran Knights21.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.5 assistsLast Week: N/A Steady is the word for Bong Quinto.The stocky scorer has kept the ship afloat for Letran as it got itself back on track, snapping its three-game losing skid and forcing a third place tie with JRU.Coach Jeff Napa said that the Knights have finally addressed their issues after that funk, and with Quinto being one of the team’s leaders, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they secure one of those elusive Final Four seats sooner than later.2. CJ Perez – F, Lyceum Pirates21 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 stealsLast Week: N/AADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity. Ricafort eager to bring energy, help motivate Maroons Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa View comments With the collegiate season in full swing, INQUIRER lists the week’s top seven performers in the ongoing NCAA Season 93 men’s basketball tournament. From their game statistics to their overall impact in the outcomes, everything is weighed to come up with the best players from the week that was.ADVERTISEMENT At 5-8, Arellano is still just two games behind in the Final Four, but the Chiefs must step up in their next games if they want to make it to the postseason.7. Sidney Onwubere – F, EAC Generals19.0 points, 9.5 reboundsLast Week: N/AEAC remained in the running in the Final Four race, but could not extend its streak to three after suffering an 84-79 defeat to Arellano on Friday.But that wasn’t because Sidney Onwubere didn’t fight for the Generals, as the senior forward gave everything for his side.Still, EAC’s performance should be lauded given that it’s playing without its starting frontcourt, and coach Ariel Sison made it clear that the Generals will go for broke to reach its goal of making it to the Final Four.

The guest list for the Ohio State’s 2002 national championship team reunion consists of three or four names, but it won’t stay that short for long.The defensive captain of the 2002 Buckeyes, which secured its place in OSU football lore with a 31-24, double overtime win against Miami (Fla.) in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, isn’t ruling out appearances from former OSU coach Jim Tressel or tailback Maurice Clarett.OSU’s 2002 national championship squad will reconvene at Ohio Stadium for the Buckeyes’ Nov. 24 game against Michigan where they it will be recognized by the university and conduct other celebratory activities on its own.Former OSU safety Mike Doss, the defensive MVP of the 2002 national championship game, told The Lantern Thursday that he has been planning the event on behalf of the entire team. Former quarterback Craig Krenzel, safety Donnie Nickey and cornerback Dustin Fox have been “in constant communication to make everything go.”Doss told The Lantern that he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox might be the only four players committed to the event for now, but more members of the 2002 team are expected to join in the festivities.Tressel could be among the attendees too, Doss said.“I don’t think it would be an issue with coach Tressel coming back and reuniting with his players of the past knowing that he was our coach,” Doss said. “Knowing what kind of impact he had on us. What kind of impact we had on him and his career, I don’t think that would feel uncomfortable for him at all because we love coach Tressel, we support him as OSU supports each and every one of us.“Right now you’ve got three or four guys … Just the little bit of hints that we’ve reached out, that I think everyone would be committed and involved as much as they can.”OSU athletic director Gene Smith shared similar sentiments during a radio interview on WBNS-FM 97.1 about a possible return to Ohio Stadium for Tressel, saying it wouldn’t be awkward at all if Tressel came back.Tressel was forced to resign as OSU coach May 30 after it was discovered he was aware of players violations that occurred during the 2010 season, failed to report the violations and fielded ineligible players during the 2010 season, which was later vacated.Tressel did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment.Doss said he and his three teammates planning the event wouldn’t accept a celebration of their national championship that didn’t include Tressel, as well as Clarett.Clarett ran for 1,237 yards and 16 touchdowns during the Buckeyes’ championship run. After the season, Clarett sued the NFL in an attempt to declare for the 2004 NFL Draft.Later, Clarett pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a concealed weapon and served three-and-a-half years in a Toledo prison.Doss said Tressel and Clarett’s transgressions are separate issues from the on-field accomplishments of the 2002 championship team.“Coach Tressel was a part of that team. He was the nucleus,” Doss said. “Maurice Clarrett – one of the best tailbacks to play at Ohio State for one season and a career. You know, he was a phenomenal player for us that year. We would not accept anything presented to the university if both of those guys weren’t included.“We all communicated to ourselves that anything that was going to be organized has to include each and every one that was involved. Period. If that was going to be an issue then we would have respectfully declined. But the university embraced coach Tressel and Maurice.”Clarett did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment but indicated he would attend the reunion on Twitter.From his account, @ReeseClarett13, Clarett said, “indeed my friend….,” in response to a question regarding whether he would attend the event.Clarett said in a later tweet: “me and Tress have been cool since before I went to prison. A lot of ppl don’t know that. I couldn’t do it (without) him.”Doss said the timing for a reunion is right for several reasons, but most of all because the 2002 championship is the university’s only one in the last 10 years, as well as for nearly 40 years prior to that.Aside from university recognition, Doss said he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox are working on preparing a dinner reception and a tailgate prior to the noon kickoff against the Wolverines.There is also interest in returning to show support for the current team, as well as first-year coach Urban Meyer and his staff, Doss said.The Buckeyes’ opponent that day was a factor too.“It’s coach Meyer’s first Michigan game,” Doss said. “It’ll be an opportunity for a lot of support to be there for the coaching staff and it’s Michigan – that’s all you have to say.”

In This Issue. * Gold flip-flops all day. * It’s all about the Debt Ceiling. * ESM issues a bond! * Switching to the so-called Safe Havens. And, Now, Today’s Pfennig For Your Thoughts! Money For Nothing Good day. And a Marvelous Monday to you! The autumn chill returned to our area this past weekend, football weather is here, time for a bonfire and flannels! My beloved Cardinals are in deep dookie and are in danger of being blown out of the playoffs in the first round! UGH! But the rest of the weekend, sports wise was good, so I’ve got that going for me! It’s day 7 on the partial shutdown (PS), and the autumn chill that has returned to the Midwest, is also making things frigid in Washington D.C. as more and more warnings are being shouted from the rooftops that the U.S. could default and the results would be catastrophic. I say, well, if someone would have stopped to think about where all the deficit spending was getting us while it was going on for the past decade, that maybe, just maybe, we would not be having to wring our hands in fear of a default right now! Hey! You can’t blame me! For I have been warning anyone that would listen to me for so long, that when I began warning about the deficit spending, I used to be mistaken for a young Bruce Willis! HA! The bond market doesn’t seem to be worried though. They know, just like me, that in the end, we won’t default, and the debt ceiling can will get kicked down the road once again. And ever since the initial move in the dollar (down), the currencies have been in a very tight trading range. The bias to sell dollars remains, but no one is paying attention to it right now. So, what I think we have here is the bond and currency markets waiting for the next shoe to drop. That shoe could be the next time the Fed Heads meet, and announce that they are not beginning to taper. One time, surprise me, second time is a trend. Or. most likely, it is the Debt Ceiling expiration that’s coming quickly upon us.. This morning, the currencies are mixed, with the euro up a bit, but below 1.36, the Japanese yen stronger on thoughts of a U.S. default, but the Antipodean currencies are weaker. A story on the Bloomberg this morning caught my eye. The title read: “Dollar Rebound Predicted by Most-Accurate Forecaster”. So, you know I just had to check it out to see why the “Mr. Most-Accurate Forecaster” thinks the dollar will rebound. I’m not saying it can’t, I just want to know his reason. And that reason turns out to be, that he believes the U.S. economy is strong, and will outperform economic growth of the Eurozone, and Japan. So, at this point, I’ve got to think that “Mr. Most-Accurate Forecaster” has been eating the same fortified with 8 essential vitamins, cereal that the Fed Heads were eating, for this sounds like a lot of the Fed Heads, to which, and you can check this in the archives, I’m on record saying months ago that the Fed Heads were being overly optimistic about the economy when they began talking about tapering. That’s all I’ll say about this, for what do I know? I mean, “Mr. Most-Accurate Forecaster” probably has a research team the size of the population of Rhode Island! But. so do the Fed Heads. Friday morning, I received a notice from a currency dealer that said “The First ESM Benchmark Syndication is Expected for Next Week.” And my eye lit up! And here’s why! The ESM is the European Stability Mechanism. I explained months ago what this was all about, but to make a long story short, the ESM is a bill funding program that’s been in place for about a year, that’s used to provide liquidity and long-term funding to the countries that need it. The difference between what was being done for the last year, and now is the ESM is going to issue a bond in syndication. In other words, take requests. RFP request for proposal, as many contract salespeople know all about, and me with my city governance background. Understand this process. But the biggest thing is the ability to do long term funding with the aim to establish a benchmark curve and a liquid secondary market over time. The first issue will be used to cover the Cypriot bailout and refinance bills for the Spanish banking recapitalization program. This is all good for the euro going forward, folks.. At least that’s my opinion, of which I could be wrong! So. in the biggest display of “why was that done?” . You know the 800,000 government workers that were sent home last week? Well, the House passed a bill on Friday to pay these furloughed workers retroactive pay. So. what the 800,000 Government workers are getting right now, is a paid holiday. Paid for by taxpayers of course! You know, the people that go to work every day, produce something, generate wages, and pay taxes. So, why did we send those workers home, knowing that it wasn’t going to save us money in the first place? Reminds me of the Dire Straits song: Money for nothing. The Pentagon ordered furloughed employees back to work this past weekend. Yes, we do have a couple of wars going on, and I would think that if there were people that are needed to be at their jobs it would be these people, that is as long as we feel we have to fight wars in other countries. Wanna save some big bucks for the country and make a whole lot of people happy, happy, happy? End the wars. And don’t stop with the wars overseas, how about here at home? The war of drugs, poverty, and so on. We’ve not made any headway on any of these over the years, so why continue? There are more people considered to be in Poverty Levels now than ever, so, great job fighting that war! The U.S. Debt stuff has taken over as what’s on the minds of the market participants. Tapering, Schapering. The Debt Ceiling is what it’s all about now. One would think that any country that’s not experiencing a possible default would have a currency that’s gaining against the dollar right now, but that’s not the case. It’s all a bunch of “wait-n-see” Right now, it seems that the Usual Suspects when it comes to what the markets call “safe havens” are in play here. Japanese yen, Swiss francs and to a lesser degree, euros seem to be the only real winners, as we begin Day 7 of the PS, and draw one day closer to the Debt Ceiling expiration of Rocktober 17th. Japan has a greater Gov’t Debt than the U.S. but, they aren’t running into the possibility of a default. And Swiss francs? Some old habits just don’t die. The Markets’ participants have viewed francs as a safe haven for so long now that even with the franc tied to the euro, they still go there. Hey! I’ve always told you that the markets are fickle. and at times have a very different viewpoint than logic would say. The Antipodean currencies of Australia and New Zealand are both seeing some selling this morning, but the moves are small in nature (less than 1/4-cent). There’s not much going on in this region of the world this week. Australia will report their September labor numbers later in the week, and that’s it.. (at least as far as I can see). These two currencies have really bounced around a lot lately. You have to be patient here. Gold spent another day on Friday, flip-flopping around, going from positive to negative and back to positive, but remaining above $1,300. This morning, Gold is up $2, but we all know that a small gain like that is vulnerable to the whims of the NY traders. I read a note from the author of the book on “Greenspan’s Bubbles” Bill Fleckenstein this past weekend, where he was talking about Gold. Let’s listen in to Bill Fleckenstein. “At some point there will be big move to the upside (in gold), and we will play catch-up for some of the monetary crimes that have been committed in the last couple of years … My belief is that we saw the lows and that gold is going to work its way higher from here, and at some point it will accelerate. … It’s just mind boggling to me that people in America are so comfortable with the inflation that we have, and they act as though it’s deflation. It’s rather stunning to me, the particular strategy now amongst people when they raise prices is they shrink the size of what they give you and they don’t call it a price hike.” Chuck again. I like what Bill Fleckenstein usually has to say, and have for a long time. He’s a very logical thinking person, and you can’t beat that! The U.S. Data Cupboard is still being adjusted because of the PS. We’ll begin to get some data this week though. in fact I’m told that the Jobs Jamboree will take place tomorrow. But don’t hold me to that, we are talking about Gov’t schedules! And before I go to the Big Finish. Man. did I ever just blow by the American priced currencies on Friday, UGH! I meant to type: American Style: A$ .9445, kiwi .8340, C$ .9705, euro 1.3605, sterling 1.6075, Swiss $1.1075 I have no idea what happened, just goes to show you that even though you do something 5-days a week for over 20 years, you can still mess up! For What It’s Worth. I saw this come through the email from MarketWatch on Friday, and thought it to be interesting. The article is about how the writer believes that the panic in Gold is over, and he can tell by watching the flows into the ETFs. Here’s a snippet.. “Gold outflows have been steadily declining since peaking in April 2013, said Nick Brooks, head of global research and investment strategy at ETF Securities. Outflows that month were at $8.7 billion. He said the main reason for that reduction is that the “bulk of shorter-term tactical money that went into gold over 2011 and 2012 has now been cleared” and gold ETP holdings are now back at 2010 levels. After record outflows from gold-backed exchange-traded products in the second quarter, outflows slowed down significantly in the third quarter. Investors were quitting their gold funds, just not with the urgency they showed in prior months.” Chuck again. You know me. I’m not a fan of the ETF’s. I’m a “physical ownership” kind of guy. But I think this information is good to know, given that the masses opt for the ETF’s, so flows are important. To recap. The markets seem to be in wait-n-see mode. In one corner we have the question of when the Fed will begin to taper if ever. And in the other corner we have the PS and the looming problem of the Debt Ceiling expiration growing closer, and the warnings of catastrophe should we default hanging over the markets like the Sword of Damocles. The bias to sell dollars remains in place, but the trading ranges are very tight. And Gold keeps flip-flopping, like a fish that jumps off the hook while in the boat! Currencies today 10/7/13.

Blues blast Florida 7-0 Saturday night, and our Rams beat Jacksonville, although I don’t think you can hang your hat on beating them this year. Well, I’ve got people living with me all watching Duck Dynasty with me. They used to laugh at me, but looks who’s watching it now! And on that note.
