Powered by Firework Liverpool won their 6th Champions League trophy on Saturday , engineered by Jurgen Klopp. Since the German’s arrival , Liverpool have improved their squad significantly and have been expressive on the pitch in their high pressing and direct brand of football. Klopp’s six year regime at Anfield finally bore fruit as Liverpool finally won a major trophy.Advertisement Liverpool have been serious challengers for the title now for quite some years now and are the favourites alongisde City for the coming season’s Premier League trophy. Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Sir Alex Ferguson had predicted this rise of Liverpool FC under Klopp well before as he writes in his column at the telegraph :Advertisement “I can recall the moment when I became genuinely excited about what Jurgen Klopp would bring to Liverpool. It was not just his work in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund, thrilling as that was. Nor was it that his natural enthusiasm and personality was so perfect for Anfield, which he demonstrated upon arrival. There is more to being a great manager than charm and personality,” Carragher wrote, before adding:“The true endorsement came on a visit to Old Trafford a couple of years ago. I was invited to play in Michael Carrick’s testimonial and had the chance to speak to Sir Alex Ferguson. I had read Fergie’s complimentary remarks about the Liverpool manager, so wanted to hear more. “He’s got something about him. He is very confident,” Sir Alex told me.”Advertisement “There was a look of genuine admiration for Klopp, accompanied by that added hint of concern, telling me all I needed. “If Fergie is worried, this guy must be the real deal,” I thought,” Carragher wrote.

France’s Pouille upsets Nadal to reach quarters

first_imgYoung Frenchman Lucas Pouille scored a stunning, five-set upset over 14-times grand slam singles champion Rafa Nadal, winning a climactic tiebreak 8-6 to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals on Sunday.Displaying poise beyond his years, the 22-year-old Pouille took charge early and led two sets to one, then rebounded after sagging in the fourth set to win 6-1 2-6 6-4 3-6 7-6(6) in a four-hour struggle against the fourth seed.Playing his third consecutive five-set match, 24th seed Pouille, still looking for his first ATP Tour title, showed that his quarter-final advance earlier this season at Wimbledon was no fluke.“It’s my first match on the center court, against Rafa,” Pouille said in an on-court interview after dropping flat on his back in celebration after his forehand winner ended the marathon on his fourth match point.“I couldn’t dream better than this.”The see-saw battle carried all the way into the fifth-set tiebreak, reached after Pouille answered Nadal’s opening game service break with one of his own in the eighth game.In the tension-packed decider, the Frenchman rushed out to a 4-1 lead. Double U.S. Open winner Nadal drew within 4-3 but a forehand winner by Pouille made it 6-3 for triple match point.Nadal, who has made an extraordinary comeback from a wrist injury that forced him to retire before his third-round match at Roland Garros and withdraw from Wimbledon, fought them all off to make it 6-6.The Spaniard looked poised to reach match point himself when he came in on a short ball and looked set to unleash a winner, but his forehand found the net and Pouille made no such mistake on his big swing that finished the match.“I learned that it’s never over until the last point,” said Pouille. “I was a break down in the fifth, I came back and led 6-3 in the tiebreak and he came back. Yeah, it’s never done until the last point is over.”Said Nadal: “I fight until the end, until the last ball. Was a very close match. I congratulate my opponent, he played with better decisions than me the last couple of points.Nadal said Pouille has a very bright future.“He’s a player that has all the shots. He’s a potential top 10 and good fight for the big things the next couple of years, if he’s able to keep playing well, keep improving.”Pouille will play 10th-seeded compatriot Gael Monfils in the last eight.Monfils advanced with a 6-3 6-2 6-3 victory winner against unseeded Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, and has yet to lose a set in the tournament.last_img read more

McIlroy hits back after accused of being ‘bored’ by Elkington at US Open

first_imgRory McIlroy and Steve Elkington engaged in a social media spat after the Australian took a potshot at the world number two who missed the cut at the U.S. Open in Erin, Wisconsin on Friday.Elkington, the 1995 PGA Championship winner, suggested that McIlroy had lost interest in adding to his collection of four major championships.“Rory is so bored playiing golf…without Tiger the threshold is prolly 4 majors with 100mill in bank,” Elkington wrote on Twitter.“Nobody more gifted than Rory… Hes so bored playing golf on tour,” Texas-based Australian Elkington wrote in a separate tweet.McIlroy was not amused.“More like 200mil… not bad for a ‘bored’ 28 year old… plenty more where that came from,” replied the Northern Irishman.Elkington said Jack Nicklaus never discussed his earnings, to which McIlroy called out the Australian’s spelling and wrote “That’s why jack designed 100’s of golf courses… and it’s knew… mustn’t have taught grammar in the 50’s.”The exchange came after McIlroy struggled to avoid the brutal Erin Hills rough in a shocking first-round 78 en route to an early exit from the year’s second major.For the first time since 1974, four players head into the weekend tied atop the leaderboard, with Americans Brooks Koepka and Brian Harman and English duo Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood locked at seven-under 137.That foursome does not quite roll off the tongue like the 1974 gang of Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Raymond Floyd and eventual winner Hale Irwin, but nevertheless.Rain started falling a couple of hours after the end of the second round on Friday night, and with thunderstorms likely on Saturday afternoon, chances are the course will not be firm and fiery.The wind is also forecast to be light all day, so birdies should again be plentiful.But the long fescue rough remains a severe punishment for wildly inaccuracy, so precision off the tee will remain of paramount importance, no matter what the conditions.Webb Simpson, the 2012 champion, and fellow American Tyler Light will be the Saturday dew sweepers, teeing off at 8.26 a.m. Central (1336 GMT), with the final pairing of Casey and Harman out at 2.29 p.m. Central (1929 GMT).Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day all failed to make the cut on Friday, the first time that the top three players in the world failed to qualify for weekend play at the championship since the rankings were created in 1986.Last year’s winner and world number one Johnson, who arrived late in Wisconsin after staying in California for the birth of his second child, added a one-over-par 73 to his opening 75 to finish on four-over 148, three off the cut line.Second-ranked McIlroy, who has played just six tournaments this year while battling a nagging rib injury, shot one-under 71 after opening with a six-over 78, and number three Day had a second-round 75 to finish on 10-over 154.last_img read more

Missing snowmobilers found safe near Chetwynd

first_imgA search and rescue mission was conducted with the assistance of the local Search and Rescue team. The search party heard from the wife of one of the snowmobilers this morning, indicating she had received a SPOT message on her computer asking for help with GPS coordinates. SPOT is a satellite messaging and emergency communications system, that helps alert when assistance is needed. Those coordinates helped the search team find the pair, both in good health. The RCMP is taking this opportunity to advise the public to plan ahead for recreation activities. That includes checking weather and avalanche conditions, and using the SPOT system.- Advertisement –last_img read more

The best medicine

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas City“This is just another example of women leaders in this community stepping up and making a difference,” said Harren. Following dinner, Judith Opdahl, Wellness Community executive director/CEO and a cancer survivor, welcomed guests to the first of a two-night fundraiser, complete with dinner, silent- and live-auctions and a great lineup of comics. In April, The Wellness Community South Bay Cities, located on the Redondo Beach pier, celebrated 20 years of offering free support groups and services. Rebecca Weintraub, a TWC board member who is approaching her fifth anniversary of a battle with an aggressive breast cancer, served as auctioneer for the live auction. She humored members of the crowd into opening their wallets. When there was a bidding war for Ramona “Sky Chick” Cox’s aerial plane ride for five passengers to Catalina (it went for $1,500), Cox offered two trips, netting $3,000 for the TWC. And in an impressive act of generosity (and passionate pleading by Weintraub), 40 women each bid $100 for identical pink wristwatches with breast cancer insignias on the bracelet. It might seem politically incorrect to laugh in the face of cancer. But try telling this to Tuesday’s jam-packed audience of women on a mission during “Girls Night Out,” a benefit for The Wellness Community South Bay Cities at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. Cancer struck a personal chord with most of the guests, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. The tears, however, were from laughing, not crying. Wearing pink “Girls Night Out” caps, the crowd grew increasingly jovial throughout the evening as women sipped drinks and bid in a silent auction. One huge table held 20 nurse leaders from Little Company of Mary Hospital, along with Kathy Harren, the hospital’s chief nursing officer. During the evening, Weintraub shared insights from her own cancer ordeal. “I realized that nobody knows how many years they have on the planet and nobody knows how they are going to die,” she said. “But if we worry about that, we will give up what we have for sure, and that is today.” She said her most difficult task was to tell colleagues and loved ones about her diagnosis, causing them to “get this (sad) cancer face.” But once she joined the Wellness Community’s Tuesday morning support group, she no longer had to “ruin anyone’s day,” she said. “When I was weak, they were strong. When I was scared, they were courageous. When I was sad, they made me laugh. When I thought I had nothing left with which to fight, they picked me up and fought for me.” Weintraub said it takes $16,800 to run a support group for a year, a priceless service, free to all cancer patients. “If you have friends or loved ones going through cancer, then drive them – drag them – to the Wellness Community,” she said. “I cannot imagine anyone having to fight this battle without the Wellness Community.” meredith.grenier@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hart Broncos on fire

first_imgFausett, a 58-year Valencia resident who is a project manager of a construction firm, has dedicated his life to softball since graduating from Hart High, where he played football and basketball. In other summer softball news, Valencia ace Jordan Taylor, considered the top returning pitcher in California, has recovered from a minor foot injury that sidelined her for about a week. She’s a top pitcher for the Anaheim Batbusters, who participate in the ASA Gold nationals in Oklahoma City in two weeks. “I pulled a muscle on the top of my foot and just kind of tweaked it, but it’s been OK for about a week, and I’m just getting ready for nationals,” Taylor said. “We don’t really keep stats but the team is doing really well. We haven’t lost many games.” Among Taylor’s teammates on the Batbusters is Hart’s Caitlyn Stiglich. Former Valencia girls’ basketball standout Kelley Tarver, who averaged 11 points as a starting guard at Div. II Cal State Bakersfield as a freshman last season, is looking forward to her sophomore year. Cal State Bakersfield (24-5 in 2005-06) moves up to Division I and plays UCLA in the season opener in November. “I like it there a lot, and we’ve got a good team coming back – including Jessie Loring (ex-Saugus/Canyons,)” Tarver said. “It was nice to play with Jessie last year instead of always playing against her.” Tarver is staying in shape by participating in the L.A. Summer Showcase summer league at USC. “Everybody who’s anybody is in that league,” Tarver said. Meanwhile, another ex-local, former Canyon High/Canyons women’s standout Erica Doyle, had a difficult first season as a junior at Cal State San Bernardino, averaging 3.4 points while shooting just 27.9 percent as a reserve point guard for a team that finished 16-11 and didn’t earn a postseason berth. “I got a chance to figure out the program a little bit. It was back to phase one for me, coming off the bench,” Doyle said. “It was just sort of a new thing for me. I signed late, and it took a while to get a feel. I started to get more minutes toward the end of the season. I think next season we’ll see the Erica Doyle that I know and that everyone knows because more will be expected of me because the starting point guard graduated and I was the backup.” Gerry Gittelson’s column appears in the Daily News three times a week. gerry.gittelson@dailynews.com (661) 257-5218160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hart Bronco baseball team (12-under) continues to impress, winning three pool-play games over the weekend at the North Coast Regionals in Simi Valley, putting the boys in prime position to win the 10-team tournament and qualify for the West Zone tournament in Whittier – the last stop before the PONY World Series in Monterey. Hart (13-1), coming off a tournament championship at the Hart Sectionals two weekends ago, rallied from three runs back in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Sylmar 8-7 on Saturday – avenging Hart’s only loss in the opening North Coast District tournament. With a drawn-in infield, Devin Gustaveson singled in Tyler Glasnow for the winning run. Hart followed with two victories Sunday, defeating Charter Oaks 13-8 and Simi Youth 13-0.

Gomez celebrates Christmas Mass with inmates“Josh only hit four during the regular season but he has 10 over the past two weeks. He’s just in a zone,” said his father, Don, one of Hart’s assistant coaches. In the victory over Simi Valley, Anthony Dagen pitched five scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk. Summer is heating up for local softball players, as the Santa Clarita-based SoCal Choppers participate in the large-scale ASA national championships (18-under) in Owensville, Ky. beginning on Tuesday. Among the key players from local schools are Valencia’s Jessie Spigner, Torrie Anderson, Nicole Matson and Kristen Aidem; Saugus’ Victoria Kemp, Alex Cueva, Alicia Junker, Melisa Koutz, Claire Donyanavard, Jacqueline Taylor and Vanessa Guevara, and Canyon’s Jenna McGivney. “This is probably as good a team as I’ve seen from this valley, and I was part of a 1982 team that won a national title with Samantha Ford,” coach Gary Fausett said. “We don’t have the same kind of strong pitching, but offensively I’d say we’re probably as good as anyone in the country, including the Gold-level teams.” last_img read more

Colts in league would ‘benefit Scottish football’ says Celtic coach

first_imgCeltic coach John Kennedy believes allowing the club’s colt teams into the league set up would benefit the whole of Scottish football.A major revamp of this season’s Challenge Cup saw Premiership U20s sides enter the competition, only for all 12 to be knocked out by the fourth round.Celtic progressed the furthest beating Annan and Cowdenbeath before falling to Livingston 5-1 in round three.Now plans are afoot to extend the agreement to potentially see Celtic and Rangers colts sides become part of an expanded League 2. For a league expansion to be given the go ahead, it must pass three stages of voting. Eleven Premiership clubs must say yes in round one, with 17 teams from the Premiership and Championship combined then having to vote in favour in round two.For the expansion plan to be formalised, a total of 32 clubs from 42 must then give their approval in the final stage.And Kennedy feels the move would have wider plus points outside his own team, saying: “I think you need to look at the bigger picture. It’s not just about Celtic, it’s about Scottish football and what’s best for that.“If they can make it happen and make everyone else happy as well then it’s a positive thing. Our young lads have had great experience this year with the cup. They lost to Livingston at the weekend but that’s part and parcel of first team football, it’s a wake up for them as well. “They had a great results against Annan and Cowdenbeath and they go against Livingston and lose but that’s the reality of that type of football. That can only be beneficial for them.“So it is important for Scottish football to look at that and try and make them happen.”While Kennedy feels the current structure gives players a good start, he would like to see Scotland replicate the system used in countries such as Spain or Germany where ‘B’ teams feature in the lower leagues.He added: “I think it’s crucially important for the development of our players. At the moment we have a lot of players who go out on loan to other clubs and it’s good for them to get that experience but they do go to other clubs who play a different style and have different methods.“It almost knocks them out of sync a little bit in terms of what we’re trying to do and teach them. All of a sudden they are being told something different.“If we did have that opportunity to put them in the league then it would allow us to do everything in house, allow us to keep our players rather than send them out on loan and develop them in a way we see fit in terms of developing them to a level for our first team.“Don’t get me wrong the set up so far is good and we do have some fantastic clubs who take our players and do a very good job but I think it would make things a lot simpler if we could keep everything in house.”last_img read more
