Round-up: Jose praises QPR, Blues linked with West Ham youngster, Dunne hailed

first_imgFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Dunne has been in great formRichard Dunne has been praised by Harry Redknapp for his displays since returning to the QPR side.Dunne has impressed against Liverpool, Aston Villa and Chelsea, and Redknapp has paid tribute to the veteran centre-back, describing him as “outstanding”.Redknapp has himself been praised, by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who was impressed with Rangers and described their manager’s tactics in Saturday’s west London derby as “fantastic work”.AdChoices广告Mourinho has also insisted that Diego Costa’s below-par display on his return to the side was understandable given the striker’s recent absence.We made Oscar our man of the match in our player ratings from the weekend’s derby, while Toumani Diagouraga was our star man in Brentford’s win against Derby and youngster Lasse Vigen Christensen in Fulham’s draw at Wigan.Meanwhile, there has been more transfer speculation today involving both Rangers and Chelsea.The Blues have again been linked with West Ham’s 15-year-old defender Reece Oxford by the Daily Star, while QPR’s Rio Ferdinand is said to be likely to attract offers from the United States.last_img read more

Player a ‘victim’, his ‘misfortune’ will see transfer to Wolves unless…

first_imgSunday’s edition of Marca presented Jonny Otto’s permanent transfer to Wolves as a sure thing. They do very similar on Monday, but the Spanish newspaper adds the move will happen ‘unless something changes’.That perhaps creates some doubt, even if just a little.Marca don’t explain the reasoning for any doubt, but it could be related to the player.It’s explained that when he signed from Celta Vigo in the summer, Jonny was informed the only reason he wasn’t going straight into Diego Simeone’s squad was Atletico’s wage bill hitting its limit.They now say that he’s a ‘victim’ of Alvaro Morata’s arrival on loan from Chelsea, because Atletico need to raise some money.It’s explained the ‘controls imposed by the league’ meant Jonny had to join Wolves on loan in the summer, and his ‘misfortune’ this time will ‘be final’… with Marca making it sound a sure thing again.The situation is compared to that of Martín Demichelis, who signed for Atletico Madrid in July 2013, didn’t play for them, and moved to Manchester City in the same window.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles find each other in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndolast_img read more

Pooran excited about WC debut, eyeing title

first_imgSOUTHAMPTON, England, CMC – Rookie Nicholas Pooran hopes fulfilling his dream of playing in a World Cup coincides with a successful campaign for West Indies. The 23-year-old was selected for the May 30 to July 14 ICC showpiece after only a single One-Day International – in which he failed to score – against England back in February this year.“To be honest I would love to do special things for West Indies cricket,” the left-hander said.“We have a really good bunch of guys now, a lot of young talent and we’re definitely looking forward to the World Cup. Not just myself but I know everyone else in the team is looking forward to a successful World Cup. “It’s been a while since West Indies won the 50-over World Cup but we’re confident and once you’re confident anything can happen. It would definitely be a lift to the people back home. We have a lot of passionate fans and I know they’re going to get behind us and they’re going to support us.“We’re going to try our best and try to bring this home.”West Indies won the first two World Cups in 1975 and 1979 under the legendary Clive Lloyd and were losing finalists in the 1983 tournament, but have failed to make the grade ever since. They will enter this World Cup under the radar somewhat, with their unflattering record in recent years leading pundits to rule them out as serious contenders.Pooran, though, believes if West Indies play strong cricket, any outcome would be possible.“I’m very excited. It’s my first World Cup and my dream was always to play for West Indies at a World Cup,” he said. “Hopefully we can be successful as a team. Hopefully at the end of the day if we do the right things we can be successful so I’m definitely looking forward to it.”Pooran is an aggressive batsman who has the ability to score quickly. In 11 T20 Internationals, he has already notched two half-centuries, and this year landed a contract with Kings XI Punjab in the lucrative Indian Premier League.He also scored heavily in the Super50 Cup West Indies domestic tournament last October to grab the attention of selectors. “I’ve worked hard over the last year and over the last couple years and my performances spoke for themselves,” said the Trinidadian.“I wasn’t too surprised [about my selection] but I was really happy to be part of the squad. At the end of the day for me it was all about hard work…and I am just happy to be selected.”last_img read more

A myriad of Redskins news; Left tackle, Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed, and more

first_imgBryce Love – Jay Gruden stated on Monday that forth round draft pick Bryce Love will end up on the physically unable to perform list and hinted that he is likely to miss the entire season. Gruden added that 2019 might be a red-shirt season for love. There is much to get excited about when it comes to the Mountaineer given that he was one of the best running backs in all of college football before an ACL tear in his final game. With Chris Thompson set to be a free agent at the end of the season, it is no wonder that the team is hesitant to push Love along and may use him to offset the high price tag that Thompson is sure to command. Please follow and like us: With the season a mere twelve days away and the final preseason game just around the corner, the Washington Redskins have many questions left unanswered and positions still up for grabs. Over the past two days, Jay Gruden and the D.C. media have done quite a bit to answer those questions. Left Tackle – Its becoming more and more clear that pro-bowl left tackle Trent Williams will likely never wear the burgundy and gold again. After countless trade rumors, teammates past and present speaking out on the issue and a continued silence for William’s camp, the two sides appear to be far, far apart on any type of agreement that would see Williams suit up for the team this year. On Monday Ian Rapoport tweeted that Trent Williams is healthy and ready to play… for someone. On the same day, coach Jay Gruden stated that he strongly believes that Williams will not be traded. During the same press conference Gruden let it be known that veteran Donald Penn will likely be the opening game starter at left tackle. Some thought that Jeron Christian would make a run at that spot, but Penn’s solid performance during last week’s preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons appears to have lock up the starting job for him. The only question that remains in regards to left tackle is what will happen with Williams. Will the Redskins trade him? Will the team allow him to sit home and miss paychecks? Will missed paychecks be enough to prompt Williams to return? There seems to be no end in sight to the situation. Josh Doctson – A report by Ben Standing of the athletic on Monday stated that wide receiver Josh Doctson will not be on the team’s roster by the opening game. The team has lost faith in the former first round pick and would like to trade him. If a trading partner can not be found, the Redskins are likely to release him. Doctson is set to become a free agent at the end of the year. A trade of Doctson could potentially land a conditional 6th or 7th round pick, quite an indictment on a receiver with a litany of physical gifts that has never translated to production. Jordan Reed – Redskins nation has been collectively holding their breathe since Jordan Reed was blasted in the head by Keanu Neal during the preseason game against the Falcons. Reed stayed in the game, however, was later placed in the league’s concussion protocol. On Monday, Jay Gruden expressed optimism that Reed would be ready by opening week against the Philadelphia Eagle. last_img read more

Kenyans shine at Cape Town Marathon

first_imgKenyan athletes Edwin Koech and Celestine Chepchirchir earned hard-fought victories on Sunday, while Elroy Gelant led the South African charge by producing a gutsy fight against a strong international field at the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon.Though the elite men went through halfway in 1:03:46, on target to break the race record of 2:08:31 set by Stephen Mokoka last year, the lead group slipped off the pace in the second half.Locked in a tight battle with countryman Daniel Muteti, Koech waited until the closing stages of the 42km contest to launch a thunderous kick for the line, which he crossed in 2:09:20.Muteti grabbed second place in 2:09:25 and Mohamed Ziani of Morocco was rewarded for his tenacity, taking third position just four seconds further back (2:09:29).Gelant held on to take fourth spot in 2:10:31, ripping more than two minutes off his personal best in his second attempt at the classic distance, as he achieved the qualifying standard of 2:11:30 for next year’s Tokyo Olympics.With the race incorporating the SA Marathon Championships, Sibusiso Nzima did well to finish 10th overall in 2:13:41, and Melikhaya Frans was the third South African man, ending 11th in 2:14:57 and clipping 43 seconds off his career best.In the women’s race, Chepchirchir coasted to victory in 2:26:44, slicing nearly three minutes off the course record set by Namibian athlete Helalia Johannes last year.Chepchirchir held off a powerful Ethiopian onslaught, finishing nearly a minute clear of her nearest challenger, Nurit Yimam, who clocked 2:27:40.Despite struggling in the second half on her marathon debut, Capetonian Annie Bothma was the first SA woman home, taking 11th position in 2:41:44.Marathon specialist Cornelia Joubert finished 12th in 2:43:21 and Lebo Phalula was 13th in 2:50:04.Showcasing the depth of the IAAF Gold Label race, six men ran under 2:12:00 and four women dipped under 2:30:00, with the event establishing its place as the highest profile road race in Africa.Earlier, in the 10km race, in-form local star Precious Mashele won the men’s battle in 28:35 and Fortunate Chidzivo of Zimbabwe took the women’s contest in 32:26.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

College football Week 6 primer: Heisman watch, upset picks, predictions and more

first_imgSo yeah, you want to be in the top four at the start. How would that top four look right now? It would be a combination of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, LSU and Auburn. The top seven teams in the country have looked the part, and the only head-to-head matchup among that group in October is Auburn at LSU on Oct. 26.The golden rule of making the Playoff typically has been don’t lose two games in a Power 5 conference. With this group, however, one loss could be enough to keep somebody out.That’s why the end of the Clemson-North Carolina game was such a big deal last week, and why the loser of Auburn-Florida could be in trouble in regard to Playoff aspirations. The first week of October is here, and Week 6 of the college football season features three matchups between AP Top 25 teams.No. 14 Iowa and No. 19 Michigan (noon, FOX) collide in a Big Ten showdown at Michigan Stadium. No. 7 Auburn travels to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to face No. 10 Florida (3:30 p.m., CBS) in a battle of unbeatens. No. 25 Michigan State goes on the road to meet No. 4 Ohio State (7:30 p.m., ABC), meaning the Buckeyes will be in the primetime spotlight again. MORE: Biggest October storylines to watch out forEvery week, Sporting News will survey the landscape looking for Heisman contenders, coaches on the spot, upset alerts and other trends. With that in mind, get ready for Week 6:Heisman watchYou can make a strong argument Ohio State defensive end Chase Young is the best player in the country. He leads the nation with eight sacks. The 6-5, 265-pounder is a big reason why the No. 4 Buckeyes look the nation’s most complete team through September.When asked about Young this week, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio was quick to make a joke.“I would say I really haven’t thought of him in the human context,” Dantonio said at his news conference.Young has been superhuman to this point. We made this argument with Nick Bosa last year, and he was subsequently injured for the season. Not to jinx Young, but a big-time performance in the primetime spotlight against Michigan State could bolster his Heisman campaign.Eight defensive linemen have finished in the top five of the Heisman voting, including Iowa’s Alex Karras (second), Miami’s Ted Hendricks (fifth), Penn State’s Mike Reid (fifth), Nebraska’s Rich Glover (third), Notre Dame’s Ross Browner (fifth), Pitt’s Hugh Green (second), Washington’s Steve Emtman (fourth) and Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh (fourth).Young likely won’t get to New York City, but if he gets at least one sack in every game and makes a run at 20 for the season, then maybe he should.Coaches on the spotThe Mitten State is in focus with the Spartans (4-1) and Wolverines (3-1) playing ranked teams, and that means Dantonio and Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh are on the spot.The last time both schools had at least two losses at the midpoint of the season at the same time was 2012. Michigan beat Michigan State 12-10 that season, but it was part of a nondescript year in which the Wolverines finished 8-5 and the Spartans finished 7-6.A Michigan loss would get more attention given the reaction to a 35-14 beatdown at Wisconsin two weeks ago. The Wolverines at least get No. 14 Iowa (4-0) at home, and it should be a tight game.Michigan State travels to Ohio State. The Spartans are the last Big Ten team to win at Ohio Stadium, which they pulled off with a 17-14 victory in 2015. Michigan State also lost 48-3 on their last visit in 2017.If Michigan loses at home to Iowa and Michigan State is knocked out by Ohio State on Saturday, then this season could trend in that direction for those schools.WEEK 6 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadUpset alertHere are two games that we are more interested in:UCF travels to Cincinnati on Friday night, and that’s a big spot for the Bearcats. Cincinnati needs to get running back Michael Warren II going to have a chance, but they do have a nine-game win streak at home dating back to the 2017 home finale. Luke Fickell will have his team ready.West Virginia got drilled 38-7 by Missouri in Week 2, and the same could happen when Texas visits Morgantown on Saturday. Just keep in mind that the average margin of victory in the teams’ Big 12 meetings is 7.7 points per game. The Mountaineers are better at home and might hang around into the second half.Over/underOklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard leads the FBS with 938 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, a commanding lead for the running back who should be generating more Heisman discussion.Perhaps that’s because rushing statistics are viewed with a different lens. Here is a look at the leading rusher every year this decade and their corresponding finish in the Heisman voting.YearPlayerSchoolYardsFinish2010LaMichael JamesOregon1,7313rd2011Montee BallWisconsin1,9234th2012Ka’Deem CareyArizona1,929—2013Andre WilliamsBoston College2,1774th2014Melvin GordonWisconsin2,5872nd2015Derrick HenryAlabama2,2191st2016Donnell PumphreySan Diego State2,133T-10th2017Rashaad PennySan Diego State2,2485th2018Jonathan TaylorWisconsin2,1949thThe average rushing total is 2,127 yards, and the average finish in the Heisman voting is fourth place. That doesn’t account for Carey, who didn’t even finish in the top 10 in 2012.Hubbard, who should pad on those statistics at Texas Tech this week, is on pace for 2,251 yards and 24 touchdowns. That would likely get him a fourth- or fifth-place finish, too.Perhaps Hubbard would get the nod if he broke former Oklahoma State running back Barry Sanders’ single-season record of 2,628 yards in 1988. After all, that is SN’s greatest individual single season in college football history.WEEK 6 PROJECTIONS: Bowls | PlayoffThink about it …The first College Football Playoff rankings are still more than a month away, with the first set coming on Nov. 5.For those who don’t believe they matter, we pointed out that 13 of the 20 Playoff teams the last five years were ranked in the top four in the opening rankings. In the last two years, that was six of the eight teams.last_img read more
