Hart hits out at City capitulation

first_img He added: “I just thought we took our foot off the gas and you can’t do that. Spurs have got a lot to play for and congratulations to them but I’m not really interested in them.” It was suggested that the exertions of a busy schedule could have contributed to their downfall yesterday. Wednesday’s narrow win over Wigan gave Roberto Mancini’s squad just three days to prepare for the game in north London, but Hart denied that fatigue was an issue, pointing out that the team’s early exit from the Champions League should have kept the team fresh. “No, we can’t complain of that,” he said. “We messed up in Europe and we have had plenty of weeks rest so I don’t think that is what it is down to. It was just a poor second half.” Twelve months ago City hoped they had ended United’s domination of Manchester, but the Blues’ only hope of silverware remains in the FA Cup, where they take on Wigan in next month’s final. The way City capitulated at White Hart Lane will be of concern to Roberto Mancini, but Hart is sure that the team will recover for the final few games of the season. “We will bounce back easily, it is what we do,” Hart said. “We have proved that many a time. We have a big game coming up (against West Ham). It is always good to win at home and we have got the FA Cup final that all the boys are trying to win their spots for.” The red side of Manchester is readying its self for a party this evening after City’s 3-1 loss at White Hart Lane put the Red Devils within sight of their 20th title. Samir Nasri had put the away side ahead early in the first half, but despite controlling most of the play, City then crumbled. Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe, and Gareth Bale scored within the space of seven minutes to floor the champions. England goalkeeper Hart pulled no punches in his post-match assessment, telling City TV: “We took the lead and didn’t kick on from there. Second half we just kind of existed and paid the price.” Joe Hart’s frustration at Manchester City’s poor season was laid bare last night after he hit out at his team-mates for failing to kill off their game against Tottenham.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Officials Investigate PBC Inmate’s Death; Foul Play Not Suspected

first_imgJail medical personnel were called and began emergency medical treatment.Fletcher was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead by emergency room personnel.At 9:40 a.m. that morning, about five hours after the deputy found Fletcher unresponsive, attorneys appeared in court to discuss reducing his bond, believing that he was not present in court due to simply being sick.Public Defender Carey Haughwout says Fletcher’s mother was also in court, ready with a bondsman to get him out and unaware that he had died.By 10 a.m., Circuit Judge Daliah Weiss had agreed to lower his bail from $50,000 to $4,500. He would have also been placed on in-house arrest.On the night of March 23, Fletcher called police when he thought his girlfriend and their child were being held against their will.However, his girlfriend later told Riviera Beach officers they were not in fact being held, and added that she “has been a longtime victim of domestic violence by Fletcher,” according to an arrest report.Fletcher had reportedly threatened to kill her boss and later came to her place of work with a 10- to-12-inch knife.Officers arrested the Lake Park man the next morning on an aggravated assault charge.Circuit Judge Laura Johnson then ordered that Fletcher be held on $50,000 bail for the third-degree felony charge, even though he had no prior convictions, and the scheduled bond is usually $3,000.Foul play is not suspected, and officials say that Fletcher did not show any signs of underlying health issues.The Medical Examiners Office has completed an autopsy and is pending toxicology results. Palm Beach County detectives are investigating the death of an inmate earlier this week.According to official records, 29-year-old Travis Fletcher had been charged with aggravated assault and was in the Palm Beach County Jail.Police say a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office corrections deputy was distributing breakfast food trays last Monday morning at 5 a.m., when he noticed that Fletcher did not come to take his tray.The deputy then checked Fletcher’s bunk and found him unresponsive.last_img read more

Ostapenko mounts stunning comeback to complete French Open fairytale

first_imgBy Martyn Herman,PARIS,(Reuters)Maiden grand slam finals are meant to be suffocating experiences but Jelena Ostapenko laid waste to that theory as she blasted past Simona Halep to win the French Open in audacious fashion on Saturday.In only her 18th match in one of the four majors, the 20-year-old Latvian fought back from a set and 3-0 down to blaze past the experienced Romanian 4-6 6-4 6-3 and become her country’s first grand slam champion.Not only that but she is the first unseeded woman to win the Suzanne Lenglen trophy since 1933 and she emulated the great Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten by claiming her first title of any kind on the hallowed Parisian claycourts.Kuerten’s 1997 victory came on the day Ostapenko was born.Ostapenko had promised to stick to her uncomplicated routine of attack-attack-attack before the final and was true to her word as she walloped 54 clean winners — and 54 unforced errors.It was claycourt tennis, but not as we know it. Third seed Halep buckled under strain of fending off the missiles being launched off Ostapenko’s lime green racket.Yet for much of the contest, hanging into rallies by her fingernails, it seemed Halep’s steady approach would see her become only the second Romanian woman to win a grand slam title after her manager Virginia Ruzici’s 1978 Roland Garros win.It was not to be though.To make it a doubly difficult day for the 25-year-old, the defeat meant she also missed out on becoming world number one on Monday.“I felt like a spectator out there at times,” Halep, who had points to lead 4-0 in the second set and was also 3-1 ahead in the decider, told reporters after her second runner-up finish here.“She only has one game, either I can’t touch it or it flies one metre out.”Ostapenko, who had the Parisian crowd roaring her on, reeled off the last five games to claim the title and become the youngest female first-time grand slam champion since Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova won the 2004 U.S. Open.Fittingly she thumped a backhand winner past Halep to seal victory, before tossing her distinctive green headband into the crowd with a look of disbelief.Ostapenko, who turned 20 on Thursday when she beat Swiss Timea Bacsinszky, will rocket to 12th in the rankings.“I mean I can’t believe I’m champion at 20,” Ostapenko, the first woman to win the title from a set down since Jennifer Capriati in 2001, said on court.“I knew that Gustavo Kuerten won his first Roland Garros the day I was born, I have no words.“There were a couple of games when everything went my way and I was ready to fight for every point.”In baking sunshine Ostapenko began the match by breaking Halep’s serve with three clean winners.It was a sign of things to come.Halep, with cheers of ‘Simona’ ringing out from her fans slowly roasting in the upper tiers of Philippe Chatrier Court, hit back though and broke three times to take the opener as Ostapenko’s error count soared to 23.Ostapenko seemed to be unravelling in the second set as a series of shots either netted or flying long allowed Halep to move 3-0 ahead. The Romanian then had break points to make it 4-0 but Ostapenko held to massive cheers.Back on the attack Ostapenko surged 4-3 ahead only for more errors to allow Halep to break back for 4-4.Halep was suffering though and Ostapenko broke to love before levelling the match with a sublime forehand winner.Even when Halep went 3-1 ahead in the decider, she never seemed in control and once Ostapenko’s charge began she was powerless as ball after ball flew by.last_img read more

Influential Pogba must stay at Man United, says Mata

first_img(REUTERS) – Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is a positive influence in the dressing room and must extend his stay at the club to help bring trophies back to Old Trafford, team mate Juan Mata said.Pogba said last month that he could seek a new challenge after three years at United, while his agent recently told The Times that the 26-year-old intends to leave the club amid reports linking him to Juventus and Real Madrid.However, Mata wants Pogba’s future to include United winning “big trophies” in 2019-20 campaign, having failed to lift a major trophy since their Europa League triumph in May 2017. “We all know Paul and he is a fantastic midfielder, and a very good guy, very positive, and a good influence for everyone,” Spanish midfielder Mata told Sky Sports.“As a team mate and a friend I would like him to stay and be happy because he is a very good player for us.“We know we have to do better than last season. This club has won more trophies than any other club in England. We want to win big trophies again.” In Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first full season as United manager, the club will be aiming to improve on last term’s sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, when they ended up 32 points behind champions and local rivals Manchester City.Mata agreed a contract extension at United last month, and fellow Spaniard, goalkeeper David de Gea, is also closing in on a new long-term deal, according to reports in the British media.“David is the best or one of the best goalkeepers in the world, for sure,” Mata said.“He is one of my best friends, so I want him to stay. On a professional level, it will be great for us if he stays because he will give us many points over the next seasons.” United open their 2019-20 league campaign against Chelsea on Aug. 11.last_img read more

Spanish Forward Nolito Closes In On Sevilla Switch

first_imgSpanish international Nolito has moved a step closer to securing a transfer back to his native country after former UEFA Europa League (UEL) champions Sevilla announced that he is expected in Seville for his medical this week.Nolito moved to Manchester City last summer from Spanish outfit Celta Vigo in a £13.8m deal and immediately settled into his new surroundings. He however fell out of favour with manager Pep Guardiola some months into the season and didn’t regain his place in the starting XI till the end of the season though he still managed six goals in 30 appearances for the Citizens. With three years still left on his Manchester City contract, Nolito was keen to return home as he disclosed that his daughter didn’t like life in England. This led to an £8m agreement between City and Sevilla for his transfer subject to medical and paperwork.RelatedLa Liga Review: Atletico Thrash Sevilla To Trim Gap On Leaders BarcelonaFebruary 26, 2018In “Europe”Manchester City transfers: Navas Secure Return To Sevilla; Fernando Close To Gala SwitchAugust 2, 2017In “England”Sevilla Secure Gonalons Loan Transfer From RomaAugust 20, 2018In “Europe”last_img read more
