Tag: 上海夜网 EPL: Gunners invade Palace

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal Venue: Selhurst Park Kick off: 1:30PMArsenal make the short trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace this afternoon knowing that victory will be enough to move ahead of their hosts in the Premier League table. As well as having the opportunity to move four points clear of the Gunners, Palace could move into the top six if they prevail in this London derby. A few weeks ago, Arsenal fans would have felt that it was unrealistic for their side to keep back-to-back clean sheets, as well as continuing to play with a style which is easy on the eye. However, that is exactly what Mikel Arteta has achieved during his short time at the Emirates Stadium with victories being recorded over Manchester United and Leeds United. While there were times against Leeds when Arsenal were fortunate to avoid going behind, they rode out the storm before claiming a 1-0 success over the Championship high-flyers. That result came five days after a dominant 2-0 triumph over Manchester United, which helped the North London outfit move back into the top half of the table. With Sheffield United and Chelsea to follow the visit to Palace, neither Arteta or his players will be getting carried away with their recent upturn in results and performances, but it feels pivotal that the Spaniard has began his reign by lifting the mood at the club. Despite there still being nine points between themselves and fourth-placed Chelsea, achieving a Champions League spot come the end of the season no longer feels impossible, providing that the team can kick on in the coming weeks. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s public commitment to the cause is also a welcome boost for Arteta, who will naturally have concerns over where the Gabon international sees his future. Nevertheless, in the short term at least, the captain is capable of producing a scoring run which can help Arsenal creep up the table, and another win on Saturday will leave their rivals looking over their shoulder. From Palace’s perspective, they have their own opportunity to once again become a factor in the race for the European places, despite winning just once in half-a-dozen outings. That victory – against West Ham United on Boxing Day – came courtesy of a wonder goal from Jordan Ayew in the closing seconds, highlighting what it has taken for the Eagles to get maximum points on the board of late. While four draws have also helped their cause, the stalemates have been versus Watford, Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton and Norwich City, games where they would have been hoping for much more. Roy Hodgson will feel like his side have missed an opportunity to get themselves among the sides competing with Chelsea for the final Champions League position, with just eight points separating the two teams ahead of the weekend. That said, had it been offered to him before the start of the campaign, Hodgson would have jumped at the opportunity to be sitting in ninth place heading into the second weekend of January. When the players take to the pitch on Saturday, there may be some disappointment lingering from the defeat to Derby County in the FA Cup, with Palace now having lost two home cup ties to EFL opposition this season. In the grand scheme of things, however, it gives Hodgson the chance to prioritise the Premier League at a time when he has seen a number of his first-team squad suffer with injuries. While that may ease come the weekend, the pressure is on his players to deliver maximum points, especially with a visit to Manchester City coming up seven days later. Crystal Palace possible XI: Guaita, Kelly, Tomkins, Cahill, Riedeweld, McCarthy, Kouyate, McArthur, Ayew, Benteke, Zaha. Arsenal possible XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Torreira, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette.Tags: ArsenalCrystal PalaceEPLMikel ArtetaRoy Hodgsonlast_img read more

Tag: 上海夜网 FIFA to Appoint Normalisation Committee for Cameroon Football

first_imgDISTRACTION FOR LIONS AHEAD BATTLE OF UYODuro IkhazuagbeAhead of the double-header FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifying games with Nigeria, the Executive board of the Cameroon football federation (FECAFOOT) may step aside any moment from now for a Normalisation Committee be appointed to run its affairs until a fresh election takes place. The Bureau of the FIFA Council decided wednesday to appoint a Normalisation Committee for the FECAFOOT in accordance with article 14 par. 1a and article 8 par. 2 of the FIFA Statutes.The resort to a Normalisation Committee is the fall out of the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to annul the electoral process leading to the election of the current FECAFOOT executive committee in 2015.Attempts by FIFA to reconcile the football stakeholders in Cameroon failed leading to the current impasse.The mandate of the Normalisation Committee will include the following tasks:· To run the daily affairs of FECAFOOT;· To draft new statutes in consultation with all stakeholders and in compliance with FIFA’s Statutes and standards as well as mandatory national law;· To review the statutes of the regional and departmental leagues and ensure their alignment with the FECAFOOT statutes;· To identify the delegates of the FECAFOOT general assembly and of the regional and departmental leagues;· To organise and conduct elections of a new FECAFOOT executive committee.FIFA insisted that the normalisation committee will be composed of an adequate number of members to be identified by a joint FIFA and CAF mission scheduled to take place very shortly.“The committee will act as an electoral committee and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions in the elections.“The specified period of time during which the Normalisation Committee shall perform its functions shall expire no later than February 28, 2018,” the statement concluded.Shortly before the Confederations Cup that took place in Russia last June, a Cameroonian club, Etoile Filante de Garoua, reportedly complained to FIFA that FECAFOOT led by Tombi Roko Sidiki, lacked authority to send a team to the tournament.FIFA however ignored the protest and allowed the Indomitable Lions participate but failed to go beyond the group games.Cameroon was banned from global football in July 2013 before the establishment of a FIFA-approved Normalisation Committee.Sidiki and his executive committee then assumed office after elections held in September 2015. But the CAS subsequently backed a ruling made in Cameroon nullifying the polls that brought Sidiki to office.The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon who are trailing Super Eagles with four points in the Group B of the Russia 2018 qualifiers are due to arrive Uyo early next week for the September 1 game at the Nest of Champions. The return leg is scheduled to hold in Yaounde on September 4. A win in Uyo for Eagles will move Nigeria up nine points and only need another victory to seal the passage to the Mundial.Although Cameroon enjoys a superior head-to-head record against Nigeria, Eagles defeated the Indomitable Lions 3-0 in their last meeting in a friendly in Belgium in October 2015.Wednesday, Odion Ighalon who has just been recalled to the senior Nigerian team said from his China base that Eagles would be hungrier for the three points at stake in Uyo than the African champions.“We want the game more and God will crown our efforts on the day,” observed the former Watford forward last night.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Tag: 上海夜网 Soccer to face Colorado away

first_imgSenior forward Leah Pruitt has scored 10 goals, a season high for her career as a Trojan. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)The women’s soccer team will face a test as they travel to Colorado on Thursday to take on the Buffaloes.The Trojans are playing some of their best soccer all season after scoring 10 goals in their last two games against Oregon State and Oregon while conceding none. Following its weekend display, USC now stands at a 14-1-1 record on the year.Over the weekend, the Trojans introduced a new element to their game that they hadn’t shown much of all season. The Women of Troy have had a lot of shots in games, but haven’t been able to put a lot of them on frame. The team has addressed this issue in practice and has worked on creating more opportunities from wider positions. This was evident in the link-up play and the chances the team created to score its goals in Sunday’s game against Oregon.“Colorado plays a little bit differently, but some of the elements from this weekend will definitely be in play,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said after the Oregon game. “I think the width will be important for us, but they have such a great counterattack. We’ve got to be careful that even as we attack and create width that we defend well against their two forwards and their attacking midfielder, because they’ve been scoring a lot of goals.”Colorado currently holds a 13-1-3 record overall on the season. Despite its record, Colorado has been overlooked at times in the rankings due to its lack of quality victories. However, prior to this weekend, the Buffaloes had not lost a game all season despite playing in a competitive Pac-12 conference.Stanford is currently the top-ranked team in the country, but to lose 7-0 to any team will take away some positive momentum.It doesn’t get easier for Colorado either as it takes on No. 2 USC Thursday and No. 9 UCLA on Sunday. Facing three top-10 teams in the span of a week will put a toll on any team, no matter how much talent they possess, so the Trojans must look to take advantage of the situation.“By the time they finish that stretch [of games], everyone in the country will know how legit they are and what kind of a team they are,” McAlpine said. “But I have always thought they are impressive. They are sound defensively, their goalkeeper is a senior. They returned a lot of quality upperclassmen. So, we will lock in and try to continue to move the ball and put shots on frame.”This season, Colorado has scored 46 goals and conceded 15. Redshirt senior Jorian Baucom has been a key factor in the goals and assists department for the Buffaloes. In 17 games played, she has 12 goals and six assists on the season. Not far behind is junior Tatum Barton, who has 11 goals and four assists on the season. The creative spark of this team is junior Taylor Kornieck who has eight goals and 10 assists. The Trojans must prepare for these players, all of whom are deadly on the counterattack.The Trojans have similarly scored 45 goals on the year, but hold a better defensive record than the Buffaloes, having only conceded seven goals to date. Freshman forward Penelope Hocking has been a leading contributor for the Trojans with 28 points on the year from 12 goals and four assists while coming off the bench in most games. Senior forward Leah Pruitt has also put up 28 points this season from 10 goals and eight assists. To round the bunch out, redshirt sophomore Savannah DeMelo has contributed six goals and a team-leading nine assists.USC vs. Colorado will take place in Boulder on Thursday at 2 p.m.last_img read more

Tag: 上海夜网 Brash boxer ‘Macho’ Camacho dies in Puerto Rico

first_imgThe man who once starred at the pinnacle of boxing, winning several world titles, died Saturday after being ambushed in a parking lot back in the Puerto Rican town of Bayamon where he was born. Packets of cocaine were found were found in the car in which he was shot.Camacho, 50, left behind a reputation for flamboyance—leading fans in cheers of “It’s Macho time!” before fights—and for fearsome skills as one of the top fighters of his generation.“He excited boxing fans around the world with his inimitable style,” promoter Don King told The Associated Press.Camacho fought professionally for three decades, from his humble debut against David Brown at New York’s Felt Forum in 1980 to an equally forgettable swansong against Saul Duran in Kissimmee, Florida, in 2010.In between, he fought some of the biggest stars spanning two eras, including Sugar Ray Leonard, Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya and Roberto Duran.“Hector was a fighter who brought a lot of excitement to boxing,” said Ed Brophy, executive director of International the Boxing Hall of Fame. “He was a good champion. Roberto Duran is kind of in a class of his own, but Hector surely was an exciting fighter that gave his all to the sport.”Camacho’s family moved to New York when he was young and he grew up in Spanish Harlem, which at the time was rife with crime. Camacho landed in jail as a teenager before turning to boxing, which for many kids in his neighborhood provided an outlet for their aggression.“This is something I’ve done all my life, you know?” Camacho told The Associated Press after a workout in 2010. “A couple years back, when I was doing it, I was still enjoying it. The competition, to see myself perform. I know I’m at the age that some people can’t do this no more.”Former featherweight champion Juan Laporte, a friend since childhood, described Camacho as “like a little brother who was always getting into trouble,” but otherwise combined a friendly nature with a powerful jab.“He’s a good human being, a good hearted person,” Laporte said as he waited with other friends and members of the boxer’s family outside the hospital in San Juan after the shooting. “A lot of people think of him as a cocky person but that was his motto … Inside he was just a kid looking for something.”Laporte lamented that Camacho never found a mentor to guide him outside the boxing ring.“The people around him didn’t have the guts or strength to lead him in the right direction,” Laporte said. “There was no one strong enough to put a hand on his shoulder and tell him how to do it.”George Lozada, a longtime friend from New York who flew to Puerto Rico on Saturday, recalled that just hours after he was released from prison after serving a murder sentence, he received a call from Camacho, who was waiting outside his apartment in a black Porsche.“He said, ‘Come down, I’m taking you shopping,’” Lozada said, wiping away tears.“Because of him, man, I got what I got today,” he said, pointing to pictures on his smartphone of his 6-year-old daughter. “Because of Hector, I stopped the drug scene … He’s helped so many people.”Drug, alcohol and other problems trailed Camacho himself after the prime of his boxing career. He was sentenced in 2007 to seven years in prison for the burglary of a computer store in Mississippi. While arresting him on the burglary charge in January 2005, police also found the drug ecstasy.A judge eventually suspended all but one year of the sentence and gave Camacho probation. He wound up serving two weeks in jail, though, after violating that probation.Camacho’s former wife, Amy, obtained a restraining order against him in 1998, alleging he threatened her and one of their children. The couple, who had two children at the time, later divorced.He divided his time between Puerto Rico and Florida in recent years, appearing on Spanish-language television as well as on a reality show called “Es Macho Time!” on YouTube.Inside the boxing ring, Camacho flourished. He won three Golden Gloves titles as an amateur, and after turning pro, he quickly became a contender with an all-action style reminiscent of other Puerto Rican fighters.Long promoted by Don King, Camacho won his first world title by beating Rafael Limon in a super-featherweight bout in Puerto Rico on Aug. 7, 1983. He moved up in weight two years later to capture a lightweight title by defeating Jose Luis Ramirez, and successfully defended the belt against fellow countryman Edwin Rosario.The Rosario fight, in which the victorious Camacho still took a savage beating, persuaded him to scale back his ultra-aggressive style in favor of a more cerebral, defensive approach.The change in style was a big reason that Camacho, at the time 38-0, lost a close split decision to Greg Haugen at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in 1991.Camacho won the rematch to set up his signature fight against Mexico’s Julio Cesar Chavez, this time at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Camacho was roundly criticized for his lack of action, and the Mexican champion won a lopsided unanimous decision to retain the lightweight title.“Even though people say I beat him easily, it wasn’t that way,” Chavez told Mexico’s ESPN-Radio Formula this week. “He was a very fast fighter, he faced everything and it was very hard for me.”“He revolutionized boxing, Chavez said. “It’s a shame he got mixed up in so many problems.”After that loss, Camacho became the name opponent for other rising contenders, rather than the headliner fighting for his own glory.He lost a unanimous decision to another young Puerto Rican fighter, Trinidad, and was soundly defeated by De La Hoya. In 1997, Camacho ended Leonard’s final comeback with a fifth-round knockout. It was Camacho’s last big victory even though he boxed for another decade.The fighter’s last title bout came in 1997 against welterweight champion Oscar De La Hoya, who won by unanimous decision. Camacho’s last fight was his defeat by Saul Duran in May 2010. He had a career record of 79-6-3.Doctors pronounced Camacho dead on Saturday after he was removed from life support at his family’s direction. He never regained consciousness after at least one gunman crept up to the car in a darkened parking lot and opened fire.No arrests and have been made, and authorities have not revealed many details beyond the facts that police found cocaine in the car and that the boxer and his friend, who was killed at the scene, had no idea the attack was coming. “Apparently, this was a surprise,” said Alex Diaz, a police spokesman.Survivors include his mother; three sisters, Raquel, Estrella and Ester; a brother, Felix; and four sons, Hector Jr., Taylor, Christian and Justin.

(AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File) by Danica CotoSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP)—Hector “Macho” Camacho was a brash fighter with a mean jab and an aggressive style, launching himself furiously against some of the biggest names in boxing. And his bad-boy persona was not entirely an act, with a history of legal scrapes that began in his teens and continued throughout his life.last_img read more

Tag: 上海夜网 South Okanagan’s Vandeweghe dominated short course — Nelson’s Locke, Maly finish in medals

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsKirk Vandeweghe of Penticton usually cooks with the longer distance racers at the Nelson Cyswogn’Fun.However, the South Okanagan triathlete decided his sprint distance needed a little fine-tuning.After blazing over the Cyswogn’ Fun short course in near record time Vandeweghe can head back to the longer distance after capturing the short course title at the 2011 Nelson Cyswogn’Fun Sunday.Vandeweghe cruised over the 500-meter swim, 22-kilometer cycle and five-kilometer run in a time of one hour, eight minutes and 29 seconds. “I actually like to do a whole mix of triathlons,” Vandeweghe said from near the concession stand at Lakeside Park.“I think sprint really boosts your fitness. So I do tons of sprints, Olympics, half’s . . . they all sort of prepare for the next race.”Vandeweghe was almost six minutes in front of Nelson’s Peter Lock and eight ahead of Anthony Maley.I was really happy (with second),” Locke, using the Cyswogn’Fun as a cross trainer to prepare for another season on the cross-country ski scene as an elite racer.“This is only my second time ever racing triathlon so I’m very happy with my result.”Vandeweghe was first out of the water, first in the cycle before coasting home in second to capture the overall men’s short-course crown.“I think this is an incredible course,” Vandeweghe explained. “To think you can ride across the (Big Orange) bridge and run across the bridge twice is pretty cool.”For Locke, leaving the water in 13th spot, it was the cycle to Six Mile that allowed the Nelsonite to win the silver medal.Locke finished second behind Vandeweghe to edge up the leaderboard. He then pushed himself on the run to grab second.“I’m not as good at running so the final stage was the toughest for me,” Locke said. “And it’s tough to switch from biking to running because your legs are pretty tired, but it was a fun race.”A key for Locke in 2011 was learning the course layout. A glitch during his previous race cost the Nelsonite dearly.“Last year I went the wrong way and was disqualified, so this year made it to the (Saturday’s) meeting so that helped,” Locke said with a chuckle.Maley, first in the men’s 30-39 division, was seventh in the swim and bike stage before blazing the five-kilometer run in a first-place time of 20:54.Chad Badry of Nelson was seventh with other Nelsonites Shawn DeGroot 15th and Pierce Sharelove 16th.Allison Schlosser was the top Nelsonite in the short course, finishing 18th overall. Schlosser was sixth overall in the female category.“I had a good race,” said Schlosser. “I’ve never done a sprint distance before . . . I’ve only done the Olympic or Half, so it was really good.”“I thought I do something a little shorter where speed is a factor so things went really well,” she added.Stacy Bie of Quesnel won the women’s short course title in a time of 1:18.17.Darci Miller of Fort McMurray was second with Nikki Jomha of Victoria third.Karen Cambaliza of Calgary was fourth with Susanne Fraser of Rossland rounding out the top five.Swimski trio tops long courseTeam Swimski took the long course male crown with Last Minute Louie’s first in the long course mixed team race.Our Civic Duty was first in the long course female race.Short course team title went to McDucs Wedding Team with Team DeVries second and The Pickles [email protected]last_img read more

Tag: 上海夜网 Green stem in soybeans

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest One issue that impacts soybean harvest in the eastern Corn Belt at some level each year is green stem syndrome. Green stem syndrome could be larger issue for the 2017 harvest because of latter planting dates in many areas. When green stem syndrome occurs, stems and leaves can remain green after pods have matured. As a result, while pods and seeds are mature and dry enough to be harvested, harvest operations can be slowed as combines have more difficulty dealing with stems and leaves that are still green. In addition to creating harvest delays, green stem syndrome can increase fuel consumption and result in shattering losses if growers delay harvest until stems have fully matured.The occurrence of green stems varies from year-to-year and can be affected by several factors, such as:• Viral infections • Insect feeding • Late planting • Drought stress • Application of fungicides.Successful management of green stem syndrome requires management practices that include timely planting, establishing adequate plant stands, irrigation, and controlling insects/pests. By making these management practices a priority, growers can minimize the likelihood that green stem syndrome will develop in their soybean fields. Although green stem syndrome slows down harvest, soybeans should be harvested as soon as pods are fully mature in order to minimize harvest losses due to shattering.last_img read more
