Hughes: FA decision sets precedent

first_imgStoke manager Mark Hughes feels the Football Association’s decision not to charge Garry Monk could have set a dangerous precedent. Press Association He then added, in a dig at Mark Clattenburg following his ban this week: “Sometimes they’ve got pop concerts to go to so maybe that’s the reason they don’t want to do that.” Stoke are looking to get back to winning ways against West Ham on Saturday following back-to-back defeats by Southampton in league and cup. However, the Potters will be without suspended duo Phil Bardsley and Peter Crouch, who Hughes revealed has apologised following his sending off against Southampton in midweek. Sam Allardyce is willing to incur the wrath of West Ham supporters by enforcing winter breaks for his key players. The Hammers have started the season in impressive form and sit fourth after last weekend’s 2-1 victory over reigning champions Manchester City. Many of West Ham’s new signings have settled into life at Upton Park and have played a part in leading Allardyce’s side into the Champions League places. But the 60-year-old is worried a number of those new recruits face burnout during the busy Christmas period when they are used to winter breaks in their previous leagues. “The games come so thick and fast you are pushing to get them back when they are not really ready but you have to,” he said. “The squad still has to be fitter than now going into that period. New players – particularly Enner Valencia, (Diafra) Sakho, (Cheikhou) Kouyate, (Mauro) Zarate won’t have hit that cauldron of mental and physical output during that particular period. All of those normally have a break. “If they fatigue and they need a rest, the rest of the squad has to be fit for us to give them that rest.” Allardyce insisted he would have no qualms following in the footsteps of former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in giving players a break to maintain their peak fitness as the games stack up. “I remember speaking to Alex many years ago about the fact he used to send players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani away at Christmas: ‘Off you go, go away for a week, back to Portugal, have a rest’,” he said. “They were finding it difficult to cope with that period so he gave them a rest and then brought them back in and they kick on. “If we leave them out, we leave them out. You know, all you lot say ‘why should he leave him out, it’s a disgrace leaving him out when he’s playing so well’. “It’s not your decision, it’s mine and I do the job properly because I know what I’m doing. “If you take Enner Valencia’s load, for instance, he goes to Mexico and is an outstanding success, plays a lot of games, scores 18 goals, he plays internationals, breaks into the international team. “He trains with the international squad, plays international friendlies before the World Cup, plays the World Cup, has a few weeks off, comes to England for the first time, has a late pre-season, gets in the team, stays in the team and between that he’s gone and played four games back in South America.” Sakho will be assessed as late as Saturday morning as Allardyce gives the striker as much time as possible to prove his fitness. The in-form forward injured a shoulder in the win over Manchester City and it remains to be seen if he is risked at the Britannia Stadium despite scoring six goals in as many Premier League starts. James Tomkins and Matt Jarvis return to the squad after both recovered from thigh injuries but Guy Demel remains sidelined with Mauro Zarate (thigh) a doubt and Andy Carroll not in contention despite returning to training following ankle surgery. Asked if it had set an unwelcome precedent, Hughes said: “I think it may well have done. Maybe that word is allowed to be used by ourselves. It seems to be that the FA’s vindicated what was said.” Earlier in the same game, Swansea were awarded a penalty by referee Michael Oliver after Ryan Shawcross tussled with Wilfried Bony in the box. The issue has become a major talking point and Stoke are angry that Shawcross has been singled out as the most high-profile offender. Hughes has even relieved his captain of marking duties at set-pieces because of concerns referees are looking to punish him. The Stoke manager said: “We are speaking to people we feel have got an influence and need to be told our feelings about the situation, because we feel quite strongly. That’s ongoing. “Sometimes you’ve got to get the message across that we’re not going to stand for it and we think it’s unfair. I’m sure Ryan will be fine but, if it goes on any longer, then it’s detrimental to any player. We need to stop it.” Hughes does not feel the standard of refereeing in general is where it needs to be and thinks one improvement would be for potential issues from each game to be looked at straight away. He said: “My view is the whole game needs to be reviewed by the referee and his team immediately after a game rather than waiting a couple of days to see what media outcry there is and then someone who wasn’t even at the game is asked to see whether decisions are right or wrong.” Swansea boss Monk was asked to explain his comments after calling Stoke winger Victor Moses a cheat for going down under a challenge from Angel Rangel that earned the Potters a penalty in their 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory earlier this month. TV pundit John Hartson apologised for echoing Monk’s sentiments but the Swans manager stood by his comments and the FA this week decided to take no further action. last_img read more

England tour like the Ashes for us says West Indies pacer Kemar Roach

first_imgMANCHESTER: West Indies fast-bowler Kemar Roach said the team’s ultimate goal is to return home with the trophy as the visitors gear up for the much-anticipated three-Test series starting July 8.The first Test at the Ageas Bowl will mark the resumption of cricket after the match was suspended in March due to coronavirus pandemic. The final two Tests of the series will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester.West Indies had famously defeated England during the previous series between the two sides that was played in the Carribbean Islands. A draw in the series would be enough for them to retain the Wisden trophy.”Taking the trophy back home to the Caribbean is the number-one goal. Winning in England would be perfect but it’s about defending the trophy,” Roach was quoted as saying by The Guardian.”This is our biggest series, like the Ashes for us, so it’s about getting into that zone.”Roach also spoke about the saliva ban on match balls put in place by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in the wake of COVID-19 crisis. The ICC committee had earlier also noted that the risk of spread of the virus through sweat is ‘highly unlikely’ and ‘saw no need to prohibit’ the practice.The speedster stated they will ‘find a way’ to shine the ball despite not being able to use the traditional method.”Yes, that’s the tough part but hopefully we can get some hot days and the guys can work up some sweat. Although it has to be a pretty warm day for us to sweat. But whatever the weather, we’ll find a way,” Roach said. IANSAlso Watch: Get Set Global: Deep Dive With The UK Frontlinerslast_img read more

Students speak on success at TEDxTrousdale

first_imgThe Academic Culture Assembly held USC’s fourth annual TEDxTrousdale event, “TEDxTrousdale 2016: Make Your Mark,” this Saturday at Cammilleri Hall.  The lineup for the event included six student speakers and a student performer. Chris Lam, a junior video producer for Buzzfeed, gave a guest keynote speech.TEDx events are licensed TED events that are planned independently by various communities and organizations. The purpose of the event is to expand the interests of USC students and showcase the insights and accomplishments of USC students.The theme of the event, “Make Your Mark,” was the subject of every speaker’s presentation. The first student speaker, Demontae Thompson, a master’s student studying postsecondary administration and student affairs, kicked off the event with a powerful message about “bending towards success,” exemplified in his spoken word poem, “Almost There.”Aura Gilham, a first-year student at the Gould School of Law, followed with a lesson on the importance of making deliberate choices instead of merely going with the flow. Next were Katie Kreitzer, a junior studying design communication and NGOs and social change, and Xavier Hernandez, a senior studying industrial and systems engineering, who shared their stories of perseverance and ultimate triumph.To start the second half of the event, Leo Xia, a singer-songwriter and junior majoring in industrial and systems engineering, performed an original song named “Shaky Arms,” which addressed the difficulty of being an Asian American in today’s race conversations.The speeches then resumed with Alexa Trujillo, a senior majoring in business administration, who inspired the audience with a personal story about inadequacy and self-confidence.The final student speaker, Kurt Clements, a senior majoring in communication and a sports writer for the Daily Trojan, closed the student portion of the event with a flashback to his freshman year.  In his keynote address, Lam discussed the importance of self-education and social awareness when dealing with prominent social issues like race and gender.The planning committee worked for six months to put the event together and the speakers rehearsed for weeks beforehand.“We started planning this in November,” said Allison Bowen, the executive director of TEDxTrousdale 2016. “We received a record number of applicants this year for both the event’s selection committee and the speakers, so it took a lot of time to put this team together. It all turned out really well, though, and I’m glad I got to lead the planning of an event that creates an environment for other people to grow.”This sentiment was echoed by other members of the Academic Culture Assembly and the selection committee. Gilham believed that voicing her beliefs were important.“Applying was a shot in the dark for me,” Gilham said. “This entire TED experience, however, really helped me voice the thoughts that had been floating inside my head for a while now. Though it can be scary that choices carry a lot of responsibility, choices define a person, right or wrong, so it’s important to make sure you’re living deliberately.”The audience members also felt they benefited from the TEDx experience.“The speakers were really incredible,” said Maya Bouchet, a sophomore majoring in policy, planning and development. “It was so nice to hear students talk honestly about both their successes and their struggles. There was also a nice balance between the importance of striving for success and not being too hard on yourself.”last_img read more

Toronto Raptors’ Nick Nurse Named NBA Coach of the Year

first_img Source: Nick Nurse was announced as the winner of the N.B.A. Coach of the Year Award on Saturday after leading the defending champion Toronto Raptors to another 50-win season, this time without Kawhi Leonard.Nurse, who has the Raptors on the verge of the second round of the playoffs, was a runaway winner, receiving 90 first-place votes from a panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters.

They rolled to a 53-19 record and the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. They have a 3-0 lead over the Nets and will try to finish off the sweep Sunday.Nurse is 111-43 in two seasons.
