Jagielka: We are in a dogfight

first_img Press Association Everton captain Phil Jagielka has no doubt the club are now in a relegation battle. When Jagielka was asked if he felt Everton were now in a relegation fight, the England centre-back – quoted by the Liverpool Echo – said: “Yeah, I think so. “With 10 games to go that is not where you want to be. “We still have that six point gap but we are not taking anything lightly. “We have some tough games coming up and we are not where we want to be so need to start winning sooner rather than later.” Everton fans have seen their team lose seven times in that 12-match sequence and some of those in attendance on Wednesday expressed their frustration by booing at the final whistle. That exasperation was also replicated on social media, with “#MartinezOut” trending on Twitter in the UK shortly after the game, but there were notably plenty of cheers of encouragement when the Toffees were 1-0 down at the interval. And the manager has emphasised how important he thinks the backing of the fans will be for Everton’s prospects during their remaining Premier League fixtures, in which, he says, the Merseyside outfit will “give their lives” to get as many points as possible. Pressure appears to be building, and Jagielka feels he and his team-mates must step things up to ease it. The Toffees, beaten 2-0 at Stoke on Wednesday to leave their record showing just one win in their last 12 Barclays Premier League games and none in their last five, are six points above the drop zone in 14th place with 10 more to play. Manager Roberto Martinez said after the match at the Britannia Stadium that his side are not too good to go down, but he was also keen to stress they were “not looking down” the table. “The fans were great (at the Britannia Stadium). It has been a difficult season to watch us because the performances have not been as good as last season (when Everton finished fifth in the Premier League),” the 32-year-old said. “They are going to vent their frustrations. It is normally the manager that gets it as he is head of the food chain. “But we as players know we need to buck our ideas up, start performing better and take pressure off him, pressure off ourselves and start getting some more points.” Stoke, whose goals came through a superb Victor Moses header in the 32nd minute and a rebound effort from substitute Mame Biram Diouf six minutes from time, are 14 points ahead of Everton with 42 on the board. They are up to eighth and look good to better their Premier League club records set last term of a ninth-placed finish and points total of 50. Wednesday’s result was their third win in a row and seventh in their last 11 league games. On such a roll, it seems in some ways a shame that they are not in action again until 10 days on from the Everton clash. But midfielder Charlie Adam feels it presents a good opportunity for the Stoke squad in terms of key players working their way back to fitness ahead of the reunion with former Potters boss Tony Pulis when they face West Brom away on March 14. “The break has come at good time, because we have a few niggling injuries,” Adam told Stoke City Player. “When you are playing well and you are winning, you want to play all the time. “But for us I think it is a good time – after the 10-day break hopefully Ryan Shawcross (back), Marc Muniesa (hamstring) and Stephen Ireland (calf) will be back. “It is important we get the right rest and prepare for West Brom, which will be a tough game.” last_img read more

Versatile Joel Campbell eyeing Arsenal’s Champions League progression

first_img “In the Pireo (Karaiskakis Stadium) it is very difficult to get points, but it is the last game of the group stage and we will give our best. “It is the most important game of the season so far. It will be a cup final and we have to win to continue in the Champions League.” After suffering a shock 3-2 home defeat to Olympiacos in September, Arsenal have it all to do to if they are to turn around the group and so avoid dropping into the Europa League. Full-back Hector Bellerin insists the squad will be up to the job this time. “We have proved already that we are a team who are very dangerous when we have the ball. We need to try to do that at Olympiacos by having possession and creating chances,” Bellerin said on the club’s official website. “I am sure that the ball is going to go in and that we’re going to go home with a win. That’s very important, that the team is in the mood for it and that the team wants to get out of the group stages. “We know that, as the players who represent Arsenal Football Club, we need to be up for the job.” Manager Arsene Wenger takes his depleted squad out to Athens for Wednesday night’s final Group F fixture knowing there is no margin for error if they are to upset the odds and progress with a two-goal victory margin needed to overhaul the Greeks in second place. Both Santi Cazorla and Alexis Sanchez will not be available against Olympiacos, with Spanish midfielder Cazorla set for a couple of months of recovery following knee surgery, while Chile forward Sanchez has a hamstring problem, the extent of which has yet to be confirmed. With Francis Coquelin, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky also continuing rehabilitation , the return for midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who scored the final goal in the 3-1 Barclays Premier League win over Sunderland on Saturday, and Theo Walcott, a second-half substitute , provide some welcome support. Campbell opened the scoring against the Black Cats with a cool finish and the 23-year-old Costa Rica forward is determined to make the most of more opportunities which come his way. “We have had bad luck with injuries. There have been injuries for players who are very important to us, but we are a big club and we have great players (to cope with the situation). We have to step up and move forward,” Campbell said to the IBTimes UK. “It’s not just me, the whole team are leading the way, it’s the only way to go. All of the players are giving their best and it’s paying off on the field. “I can play in three positions: left, right and in the middle of the attack. Wherever the boss plays me I try to do my best.” Campbell spent the 2013-2014 season on loan at Olympiacos, and so knows full well what sort of reception awaits at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, where Arsenal have lost in each of their previous three visits. “We got the result (against Sunderland) and that’s what we wanted, now we have to prepare mentally and physically for Wednesday’s game because it will be very difficult,” he said. “We already played against Olympiacos at Emirates Stadium. They are a great team, a great rival and especially because they play at home. J oel Campbell is ready to be deployed anywhere in the Arsenal frontline to help the team overcome their injury set-backs and reach the knockout stages of the Champions League once again.

Pakistan beat Windies by 133 runs, clinch series

first_imgABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AFP) — Leg-spinner Yasir Shah took six second-innings wickets in Pakistan’s crushing 133-run second Test win over West Indies in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday as they took an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.The wily spinner finished with 6-124 to secure his second ten-wicket haul in Test cricket after claiming four wickets in the first innings as West Indies were bowled out for 322 before tea on a weary fifth and final day pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.Shah had deprived West Indian batsman Jermaine Blackwood his second Test hundred when he bowled him for 95 in the pre-lunch session.West Indies, set a mammoth 456-run target for an unlikely victory, still fought hard and batted for 108 overs with Shai Hope also scoring a fighting 41.Hope and Devendra Bishoo fought for 45 runs during their eighth-wicket stand before left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar (2-51) had Hope and Bishoo (26) caught to finish the match.In between Babar’s wickets, Shah had Miguel Cummins bowled for nought to finish the match with figures of 10-210, having taken 4-86 in the first innings.Pakistan won the first Test by 56 runs in Dubai, leaving the third and final Test in Sharjah starting from Sunday inconsequential.Captain Misbah-ul-Haq showed delight at the series win.“It’s a good win and I am very happy,” said Misbah, who equalled Imran Khan’s record of most matches as Pakistan captain with 48. But this is Misbah’s 23rd victory while Imran had only 14.“The pitch was not helping the spinners so it was tough to get West Indies out even on a fifth day pitch but we have match-winners like Shah who bowled very well.”Meanwhile, West Indian captain Jason Holder was pleased with his team’s fight despite the defeat.“We’ve showed signs of improvement,” said Holder who has now lost eight of his 11 Tests as captain.“Unfortunately we weren’t able to start the game the way we like. They scored too many runs on the first day, we didn’t bat well in the first innings. Pleased with the guys like Blackwood, the way they showed application.”Blackwood defied Pakistan’s spin-cum-pace attack in the first session by adding 63 for the fifth wicket with Roston Chase (20) and another 57 with Hope for the sixth to counter the weary pitch.When it seemed Blackwood would complete his second Test hundred, Shah produced a beautiful delivery which kept straight and hit the batsman’s pad, dislodging the stumps.Blackwood hit 11 boundaries during his enterprising 127-ball stay.Shah then trapped Jason Holder leg before for 16 to complete his five-wicket haul, the second in the series.Resuming at 171-4 West Indian pair Blackwood and Chase batted without any problems for the first nine overs, but in the tenth of the day Shah produced a sharp turning ball which took the edge off Chase’s bat to wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed for an easy catch.Pakistan took the second new ball with the score on 223-5 but Blackwood hit two boundaries in Sohail Khan’s first over.Shah then took two more wickets to derail West Indies’ fight.PAKISTAN BEAT..PAKISTAN 1st innings 452 (Y.

FIFA Rankings Not True Reflection of Nigeria’s Current Status, Says Onazi

first_img“I thought it should be an accumulation of our games, including the wins against Zambia and Algeria,” the Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder reasoned.The former Lazio FC of Italy player, however sounded optimistic that the Super Eagles will have a good ranking ahead of the World Cup draw after sealing her qualification spot for next year’s soccer showpiece in Russia.“I hope the rankings at the end of the qualifiers will be fair to us to get a favourable draw, after we must have qualified for the World Cup by the grace of God,” he said.Nigeria will file out against the Chipolopolo of Zambia next month at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo, a game that should seal the World Cup ticket after victory is ensured.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Following Nigeria’s recent drop in the monthly FIFA rankings, Super Eagles’ Assistant Captain, Ogenyi Onazi, has dismissed the rankings, stressing that it is not a true reflection and position of the team’s current form and achievement.Speaking to from his base in Turkey, the power-playing midfielder, opined that the team has had more wins than loses which should have reflected their actual position on the monthly rankings, but that he was shocked instead of the team’s drop from six places to 44th.“I find this worrisome. How can we drop from 38th to 44th after recording almost 70 percent wins this year in all our matches and even against great oppositions like Togo, Cameroon and even recorded a draw in a friendly against highly-rated Senegal?last_img read more

Kenneth Leventhal, USC life trustee, dies at 90

first_imgKenneth Leventhal, a USC trustee and real estate accountant known for his leadership, energy and philanthropy, died May 8. He was 90.Leventhal had prostate cancer, according to the Los Angeles Times.As a USC life trustee, the leader of two fundraising campaigns and the namesake of the School of Accounting, Leventhal was heavily involved in university affairs.In memoriam · Kenneth Leventhal served as a USC life trustee and was chairman emeritus of Ernst & Young. – Photo Courtesy of the Leventhal School of AccountingStan Ross, a business partner who had known Leventhal for 50 years, said Leventhal’s attachment to the university only increased with time.“He had such strong feelings about the university throughout the years and they just grew stronger,” said Ross, who also chairs the board of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate. “He felt strongly that USC had a wonderful curriculum and academic program and that the faculty were really excellent.”In 1995, Leventhal and his wife, Elaine Otter Leventhal, bequeathed $15 million to USC’s accounting school, which was named in their honor the following year. The Leventhals pledged an additional $10 million during a 10-year fundraising drive, which Kenneth Leventhal led.When completed in 2002, the campaign had raised more than $2.85 billion for USC.A graduate of UCLA, Leventhal became an active USC supporter after his alma mater ended its accounting program, said Ken Merchant, a former dean of the Elaine and Kenneth Leventhal School of Accounting.“UCLA, some years ago, decided to do away with their accounting majors, and he thought that was a colossal mistake,” Merchant said. “He sort of gravitated toward USC and became one of their best friends over the years.”His firm, Kenneth Leventhal & Co., which was involved in some of the nation’s largest real estate transactions, gained a reputation for its partners’ expertise and knowledge of real estate, said William W. Holder, dean of the Leventhal School of Accounting. Holder said, as a result, the firm was able to attract high-profile clients, such as Ray Watt and William Lyon.“He attracted, very early on, some of the giants in California real estate,” Holder said. “As they prospered, his firm prospered.”Holder described Kenneth Leventhal’s business manner as incisive.“He was purposeful, he was very intelligent [and] he was direct,” said Holder, who occasionally worked on retainer with Leventhal’s firm. “He didn’t waste a lot of time.”Kenneth Leventhal believed the accountant’s role should extend beyond audits or preparing financial statements, Holder said.“I think he had an abiding belief that an accountant’s perspective and knowledge could be a very valuable source for good in the management and operation of a company,” Holder said.When Kenneth Leventhal was 10, his paper route manager at the Herald-Express was taking a course in accounting and told him he needed only a pencil to become an accountant, according to a statement from President C. L. Max Nikias. Leventhal felt that a nickel for a pencil was a small price to pay to be his own boss and began working toward becoming an accountant.“I figured I could always raise a nickel for a pencil,” Leventhal said to the Los Angeles Times in 1985.Leventhal attended UCLA on the G.I. Bill, having served in the army during World War II. While at UCLA, he met and married his wife, Elaine.“He was kind of a rags to riches story,” Merchant said. “He didn’t have a lot of money.”In 1995, Kenneth Leventhal & Co., the firm that he and his wife had built, merged with Ernst & Young.At the time of the merger, the firm ran 13 offices nationwide and ranked as the ninth-largest certified public accounting firm in the country.Leventhal is survived by his wife, Elaine; his brother, Henley; his son Robert; his son Ross and daughter-in-law Mary Jo; and his granddaughter Emma.The university plans to host a celebration of Leventhal’s life in the fall, Nikias said.“Ken was truly an extraordinary individual and the conscience of the university,”  Nikias said.last_img read more

Syracuse field hockey squeaks out 3-1 win over Boston College despite struggling to capitalize

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Frustrating wasn’t the right word to describe Syracuse’s offense Friday, Orange back Lies Lagerweij said, but the team knew it could play better than it did.Twenty shots, but only three goals. Zero for seven on penalty corners. Two green cards, both coming in the first half. It was a game that Syracuse eventually won, 3-1, but also a game that some of SU’s players wished they had back.“We need to learn to execute a game plan, we weren’t a better team today.” Lagerweij said. “If we don’t execute our game plan and do from the start what we want to do, we make it really hard on ourselves.”After failing to capitalize on multiple opportunities Friday afternoon, No. 1 Syracuse (5-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) was able to stay patient and put three goals on the board, topping No. 18 Boston College (1-3, 0-1), 3-1 at J.S. Coyne Stadium.For the first 25 minutes Friday afternoon, the stands at J.S. Coyne Stadium produced little more than an orchestra of groans and head rolls from Orange fans. While holding the advantage in shots and corners over the Eagles, SU was still unable to convert a chance.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn one instance, a shot from Serra Degnan banked off the outside of the goal, rolling harmlessly away. Another was on Syracuse’s seventh shot of the game from a penalty corner, a shot that, like the six others before it, couldn’t find its way into the net.“You’ve got to finish,” SU head coach Ange Bradley said. “That’s something we definitely will be working on, because that can send a tone from the very beginning.”With the Orange down 1-0, still searching for its first goal of the day, Lagerweij had seen enough.She trapped the ball 20 yards from the goal, weaving between the Boston College defenders with her head buried in the turf. Once in front of the net, she wound up and backhanded the ball into the back of the BC goal, turning toward her teammates and screaming as she launched her fist into the air.Lagerweij’s unassisted goal came on the Orange’s eighth shot of the game with 25:29 on the clock. It was a shot that, unlike the other seven before it, finally found itself buried in the back of the net. The goal tied the score at 1-1, and gave hope to the Orange squad.“It’s kind of a relief, when you know you’re better than a team, to finally get that goal in.” Lagerweij said. “Obviously it shouldn’t be, it should be getting two goals early and making it easy for yourself.”Lagerweij’s goal did more than relieve the Orange, it jumpstarted it. Still, Bradley prepared her team for the second half, driving home that BC is a second-half team, and they wouldn’t go away easily.As BC faltered, posting just three shots in the half, SU was finally able to capitalize on opportunities.“We were able to just get control at halftime,” SU forward Liz Sack said. “Just keep control and not worry about the speed of the game.”With taking control of the game came taking control of the scoreboard, and just four minutes into the second half, Sack slammed home her first goal of the season to put the Orange up, 2-1.Then after an 80-yard pass from Roos Weers, a breakaway goal from Elaine Carey in the waning minutes gave SU the security blanket it would need to take a 3-1 victory.“We were able to pull out a win,” Sack said. “Being able to come out and get two goals after the half time, it was a big deal for us.” Comments Published on September 9, 2016 at 8:48 pm Contact Matt: mjfel100@syr.edulast_img read more
