Sherwood disappointed with draw

first_img Press Association After finding themselves 3-0 behind just after the half-hour mark of the Barclays Premier League contest, Spurs rallied impressively and a Jonas Olsson own-goal (34) followed by a Harry Kane header (70) and a stoppage-time Christian Eriksen strike ensured they emerged with a point. But Sherwood felt his side’s dominance after conceding for the third time was such that they should have won the match. Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood insisted he and his players were disappointed with the outcome of their clash with West Brom – despite them having come back from three goals down to secure a dramatic 3-3 draw at The Hawthorns. And he was left lamenting the way they had allowed their hosts to race ahead early on through goals from Matej Vydra in the first minute, Chris Brunt in the fourth and then, after Emmanuel Adebayor’s penalty was saved by Ben Foster, a 31st-minute effort by Stephane Sessegnon. Sherwood said: “We keep doing it (conceding early goals). It is frustrating to say the least. “Credit to West Brom, they started very well and we didn’t, and it is not good enough. We have to try to stop that somehow. They didn’t have to work very hard for their goals today. “At 3-0 down we had a mountain to climb, but I always believed we would get back in the game. “I think on the balance of play we deserved something out of the game. And I think we are disappointed to come away not having won it. “They had caused us some problems with some direct play early on, but they stopped doing that and then we jumped all over them really. There was chance after chance.” He added: “We are disappointed we haven’t come out of here with a win, but there was no shouting or screaming at half-time. “I just said to them that they had let themselves down, that individuals had let them down or mistakes. “But they know, they don’t have to be told – they are professional footballers, they know it, and you just have to try to stop it. And the only way to stop it is to leave these individuals out if they are not doing the job. “We were 3-0 down and to be walking away now with a point, we have got to be happy. But we are not, to be honest, on the balance of play. We just think we should have nicked all three.” In terms of the race for a Champions League berth, sixth-placed Tottenham – who have four more matches to go – are four points behind fifth-placed Arsenal and six behind fourth-placed Everton, with both those sides having a game in hand over them. Asked for his assessment of that situation, Sherwood said: “After 38 games you finish where you deserve to be. “People’s expectations might be that we should be Champions League or whatever. But wherever you end up after 38 games, that is where you deserve to be. “It is as simple as that. We are going to try between now and the end of the season to get as many points as we can and see where it takes us, but that table never lies.” When asked about the prospect of finishing above Arsenal, he said: “We would love to. It would be an achievement to do that.” last_img read more

As Two Storms Fade, Other Systems Appear in Busy Hurricane Season

first_imgWith the peak of hurricane season upon us, new systems are churning in the Atlantic, as two others continue to fade.The National Hurricane Center says it expects Tropical Storm Josephine and Post-Tropical Cyclone Kyle to fall apart by the beginning of the week.However, two other waves could develop in the coming days.Forecasters are watching a system that is located at the eastern side of the Caribbean.It is moving west and is producing mainly some showers and thunderstorms. That wave stands just a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days and should move toward Central America.Courtesy: National Hurricane CenterMeanwhile, a second tropical wave, still sitting west of Africa, is producing a significant amount of rain and stormy activity. That system, which is also moving west, has been given a 30 percent chance of growing into a tropical cyclone by the end of this week.Officials with the National Hurricane Center stated Sunday morning that it is still too early to tell if the forecasts will hold or change.Whichever of the two disturbances potentially becomes a storm would be called Laura. If that happens before August is over, this hurricane season would tie 2005 for the most storms going into the month of September, at 12.The remaining storm names for this year include: Marco, Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred.As for Kyle, the NHC’s final Sunday morning advisory on the storm stated, “Little change in strength is forecast before the system dissipates by Monday night.”In addition, Tropical Storm Josephine is moving north of the Caribbean and away from Florida’s east coast.Tropical Depression #Josephine Advisory 20: Josephine Continues to Lose Organization as it Passes to The North of the Virgin Islands.— National Hurricane Center (@NHC_Atlantic) August 16, 2020 As of 5 a.m. Sunday, that system had 40 mph highest sustained winds and was moving west-northwest at 15 mph.“Additional weakening is forecast, and Josephine is expected to become a remnant low or dissipate by Monday,” according to the advisory.last_img read more

Man City ease into FA Cup semis with 2-0 win

first_img(REUTERS)-David Silva and Sergio Aguero scored in each half as Manchester City became the first team to reach the FA Cup semi-finals with a comfortable 2-0 win at Premier League rivals Middlesbrough on Saturday.A dominant City cruised into the last four after Silva gave them a third-minute lead and Aguero struck in the 67th minute, with the visitors missing numerous chances to win by a bigger margin.Pep Guardiola’s attacking formation, featuring Silva, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane behind Aguero, paid instant dividends as City carved open the home team’s defence.Yaya Toure fed Pablo Zabaleta on the right flank with a defence-splitting pass and the Argentine defender drove a perfect ball across the face of goal for Silva to shoot home from close range.Middlesbrough kept getting undone on either wing as Sane and Silva gave their markers a roasting and the home team’s goalkeeper Brad Guzan made a string of good saves.Aguero hit the woodwork after another lightning raid down the right but made no mistake when he steered a first-time shot past the helpless Guzan at the near post from a fizzing low cross by Sane.City threatened to run riot in the closing stages as acres of space opened up, but Guzan spared the home side a heavier defeat by denying Sterling and Silva.last_img read more

The Latest: Washington lays off 16 athletic employees

first_img Associated Press The president of Italian soccer club Napoli has tested positive for the coronavirus.The team says Aurelio De Laurentiis was positive following a test taken Wednesday.De Laurentiis attended a Serie A meeting in Milan on Wednesday that included representatives of each of the Italian league’s 20 clubs. He was also in contact with Napoli’s players and staff recently during the team’s preseason training camp in Castel di Sangro.It wasn’t immediately clear if Napoli’s entire squad would be placed in isolation as a precautionary measure.Napoli’s opening Serie A match is at Parma in 10 days and the team is scheduled to play Pescara and Sporting Lisbon in preseason friendlies on Friday and Sunday. ___Boston College has suspended activities for its men’s and women’s swimming and diving program after some team members tested positive for the coronavirus.School spokesman Jason Baum says in an email that the athletes who tested positive are in isolation. He declined to say how many team members had tested positive and whether they were on the men’s or women’s team.As of Thursday, there were 68 undergraduates in isolation, including 28 in isolation housing and 40 recovering at home. Fifteen students have recovered from the virus.___ The Latest: Washington lays off 16 athletic employees Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___Washington laid off 16 employees and instituted furloughs or reductions in hours for another 35 employees as part of a second-round of cost-saving measures by the school. The University of Texas will require students to pass a COVID-19 test before they’ll be allowed to attend the No. 14 Longhorns’ season opener against UTEP on Saturday night.Texas has up to 3,000 student tickets available for the football game. To claim a ticket, a student must pass a university-provided rapid test on Friday, the school said. The test will be free to students at a cost of about $90 per test to the university.Texas will allow about 18,000 fans to attend the game at a stadium that typically seats close to 100,000. The testing requirement doesn’t apply to the general public attending the game.Texas doesn’t require students to be tested before they attend classes, although most are taking classes online, and gatherings of 10 or more people are generally not allowed.“For a single event where many are gathering, we felt this additional safety measure was beneficial,” Texas spokesman J.B Bird said. Washington said the 16 layoffs are a combination of vacant positions and some currently filled roles.Washington had previously announced salary reductions for some members of the athletic department and instituted furloughs for all athletic staff.“We have remained committed to maintaining all 22 of our programs and to providing a world-class education and athletic experience for our students,” Washington athletic director Jen Cohen said in a statement. “In order to fulfill this commitment we are having to make some challenging personnel decisions that impact long-standing and dedicated members of our department. The current pandemic continues to have a major impact on our entire country and we are not immune.”The layoffs and furloughs are part of Washington’s efforts to cut $28 million in expenses from its athletic budget due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The school is projecting a revenue shortfall of more than $50 million and that’s if a winter or spring football season is played.___ September 10, 2020 ___More AP sports: and read more

Sinclair declares self-belief, support from team as key elements in CPL success

first_imgGUYANA Amazon Warriors all-rounder Kevin Sinclair praised his teammates and coach for playing an enormous role in his exceptional Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season, adding that the experience gained will be essential for his career going forward.Sinclair, the man with arguably the best celebration in CPL, during an exclusive with Chronicle Sport yesterday, was in high spirits following his return home from the ‘bubble’ after a successful stint with the Warriors; who despite being knocked out in the semis, played like their moniker states.Playing just 5 games before being entrusted with some responsibility during the crunch stages of the tournament, the 20-year-old Guyana Jaguars player returned 1-9, 1-6, 2-13, 1-16 and 1-23 ending with 5 wickets. Sinclair was used as a makeshift opener for a few games but found more success in the department in which he has been excelling lately.Sinclair pulling off his traditional, acrobatic celebratory tricksWith a number of talented players, local, regional and international in the side, the dynamic all-rounder praised his teammates for their support and confidence in him, something he said played a huge role in his accomplishments this season.“Basically, I learnt a lot from coach (Johan) Botha, our captain Chris Green and Imran Tahir. I also learnt some batting tips from Ross Taylor and I even had chats during breakfast at times with Pravin Tambe (KKR spinner). So I learnt a lot this year and now I just have to add that to my game going forward.” said Sinclair.Not shying away from the fact that more could have been done in both departments, the Berbician, who ended as the Warriors bowler with the best economy rate (4.35) and average (12.20) of the tournament, admitted that the experience gained recently will help to unlock other dimensions to his cricket in the future.“There’s always room for improvement in cricket because I never really liked settling in terms of how my batting and bowling go. You don’t want to be the same cricketer every year so I think it was important to add to my game. I had a lot of positives coming out of the tournament because they didn’t know me that well”.He continued, “When I started to perform they (my team) realised that I had some talent and potential and they didn’t try to change anything about my game; they just gave me some advice on stuff like working on my variations and so on which was great,” pointed out the right-arm spinner.Despite a late start to the season, Sinclair who was a part of the history-making West Indies Emerging Players (WIEP), who won the 2020 Regional Super50, explained that it was his hunger to get back on the field after months away due to the pandemic, coupled with his desire to prove his worth as a key player in the franchise; which led to his making the most of his chances in the middle.“I started a bit late, but I was hungry for success or should I say I was waiting on my opportunity to make the best out of it and I did that. I must say it was pretty enjoyable to be playing around those senior guys as well as the international stars”.Wrapping up his interview, Sinclair who had big scalps like Mitchell Santner, Shai Hope, Andre Fletcher, Johnson Charles and Evin Lewis to name a few in his collection this season, noted that it was the overall support from his team and self-confidence in his ability which allowed him to overcome his biggest challenges this year.“My biggest challenge was to contain batsmen, I mean contain, as in ‘don’t look to go for too many boundaries’. I had the guys backing me all the way, I myself was very confident in my abilities so that was my biggest challenge of the tournament and I did it absolutely right.” Sinclair ended.last_img read more
