Change of date for Manchester derby

first_imgApril’s potentially pivotal Manchester derby at Old Trafford has been moved back two days to Monday, April 8 – depending on United’s continued involvement in the Champions League. Press Association The clash between United and City has unsurprisingly been singled out as a live TV fixture but that could change if United overcome Real Madrid to reach the last 16. The Champions League quarter-final second legs are scheduled for April 9 and 10, in which case United’s involvement would make the prospective Monday date with City impractical. last_img read more

Ireland considers Republic return

first_imgFormer Republic of Ireland midfielder Stephen Ireland is willing to consider ending his international exile under the national team’s next manager. “Right now, all that is on my mind is Stoke, getting fit and getting 90 minutes under my belt and getting as many games as possible.” Ireland joined Stoke on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day, a move that reunited him with his former Manchester City boss Mark Hughes. He made his debut off the bench as the Potters held City to a goalless draw on Saturday. It was his first competitive appearance since January and his first in the Barclays Premier League since last December. On that basis, an international recall might be some way off but he hopes his past issues with the national set-up are now firmly in the past. He said: “I would like to think so. “It was my decision to leave and it’s probably going to be my decision to go back if the manager asks, whoever they appoint. “But first and foremost it’s about my club and we’ll have a conversation further down the line if they ever want me to go back. “It all depends who the new manager is. It’s a long time away yet, I think.” Ireland is attempting to resurrect his career on loan at Stoke this season after falling out of favour at Aston Villa. His club fortunes are his immediate priority but if his Potters spell proves successful, there could be a route back on to the international stage following the departure of manager Giovanni Trapattoni. Press Association Ireland, 27, has not played for his country since he lied about the death of both of his grandmothers after pulling out of the squad for a European Championship qualifier in the Czech Republic six years ago. Trapattoni, appointed the following year, attempted to bring him back into the fold but talks proved unsuccessful and Ireland later branded the veteran Italian as “arrogant”. Trapattoni left his post in midweek after his side’s World Cup 2014 qualification hopes were all but ended by defeat in Austria, and Ireland would be pleased to take a call from his successor. He said: “I think I would like to get together and have a chat and try to put everything on the table, put across ideas and just have a good general chat. “If nothing comes out of it, nothing comes out of it, but I think it would be nice just to have a chat. “First and foremost it is just Stoke City on my mind. “I need to get 10, 15, 20 games under my belt first and see how I go with that. “Then maybe I might get in a position where Ireland want me to play and we could have a further conversation. last_img read more

Women’s lacrosse NCAA tournament 2016: Breaking down the field

first_img Related Stories Syracuse women’s lacrosse won’t host 1st weekend of NCAA tournament due to lack of available hotel roomsSyracuse women’s lacrosse earns No. 4 seed in NCAA tournament and will face Boston College or Stony Brook on SundayTaylor Cummings, Maryland send Syracuse to 10-8 loss in NCAA tournament semifinalsNo. 1 Maryland still has Syracuse’s number, this time in 14-9 win Published on May 10, 2016 at 3:30 am With the women’s lacrosse NCAA tournament bracket released on Sunday night, The Daily Orange’s women’s lacrosse beat writers broke down what to watch for heading into the tournament. Syracuse (17-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) earned a No. 4 seed and will face the winner of Boston College and Stony Brook on Sunday. Here’s how our beat writers broke down the field.Most exciting first-round matchup: Northwestern vs. LouisvilleBoth these teams finished the season ranked in the top 13. Northwestern actually started the season ranked within the top five, but suffered some tough early season losses, including an embarrassing 17-4 loss to Maryland at the end of March. But the Wildcats improved in the Big Ten tournament, making it to the title game and competing with Maryland, losing by only three. Meanwhile, Louisville followed a five-game winning streak with a four-game losing streak coming into the NCAA tournament. The Wildcats sport a top-20 offense in goals scored and the Cardinals have a top-20 defense. The difference in the game could be Kaylin Morissette, who ranks second in the country with 8.8 draw controls per game. — Tomer LangerSleeper pick: Towson (15-3, 5-1 Colonial Athletic)AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Tigers have the fifth best defense in the country, giving up just 6.6 goals per game. Earlier in the season they won games against then-No. 19 Loyola and then-No. 19 Johns Hopkins, allowing only five and four goals in each game. In a game against No. 16 Penn, the Tigers lost a 7-4 game. If Towson wins its first round matchup with Old Dominion (and if Penn beats Wagner) then the two teams could meet up again in the second round. The problem for Towson is scoring, but if the defense clamps down and and the offense gets just enough, the Tigers could make a run. — Tomer LangerHigh seed most likely to lose early on: No. 6 seed Notre Dame (13-6, 4-3 Atlantic Coast)The Fighting Irish is the only team in the tournament that has a bye and previous losses to both teams it could face. UND fell to Louisville, 10-9, in double-overtime in early March, but pounded teams by a total score of 76-27 over its next four games. At the time, Notre Dame was riding high and ranked No. 2, but then suffered a 12-11 setback at home to Syracuse. A tailspin ensued, UND lost four of its last seven games, including a 17-12 whooping at Northwestern, its other potential matchup. The Fighting Irish led for five minutes until the Wildcats ripped off nine of the next ten goals. UND should be on high alert for its next opponent, no matter which team it may be. — Sam FortierCourtesy of the ACCMatchup you’d most like to see: No. 4 seed Syracuse vs. No. 1 seed Maryland in Final FourThink about all that’s stake in this hypothetical national semifinal. It has two of the sport’s best players, coaches and programs. Can Syracuse, for the first time in four years, overcome Maryland’s dominance? Does Cathy Reese have another trick in the bag to beat Gary Gait? Will Taylor Cummings frustrate her foil, Kayla Treanor, one last time? Can Treanor breakthrough and rewrite her legacy? Will Syracuse’s senior class — ranked No. 1 when it arrived on campus — make good on promise? When two of lacrosse’s most historic programs matchup, especially ones with this much recent history against one another, it takes on an importance transcendent even if it’s just the semifinal. — Sam FortierLogan Reidsma | Senior Staff PhotographerTournament MVP: Taylor Cummings, MarylandBarring a next-level tournament performance from Syracuse’s Treanor, two-time Tewaaraton Award winner Taylor Cummings should be widely considered the best player in the field. Maryland’s versatile, two-way midfielder hasn’t disappointed in her senior campaign, notching 124 draw controls, 67 points, 57 ground balls and 43 caused turnovers while ranking fourth in Division I with 6.5 draw controls per game. A front-runner to repeat with her third straight Tewaaraton Award, Cummings has been her best against the top teams in the tournament. With six goals, eight ground balls, 10 draw controls and six caused turnovers in wins over Syracuse, North Carolina and Florida — all which ranked in the top four at the time — Cummings has given the undefeated Terrapins a great chance at a third-straight title. — Liam SullivanTeam to beat: No. 1 seed Maryland (19-0, 5-0 Big Ten)Undefeated No. 1 Maryland  has taken home the last two titles and looks primed to once more. A tough out-of-conference schedule featuring a 14-9 win over then-No. 3 Syracuse, an 8-7 win over then-No.4 North Carolina and an impressive 14-4 victory against then-No. 2 Florida has prepared the Terrapins for tournament play. There are no guarantees, especially in the NCAA tournament, but Maryland is certainly the favorite and the closest to a sure thing the field of 26 has to offer. — Liam Sullivan Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Sports Minister Goofed on Giwa FC vs. LMC Matter

first_imgPerhaps, I should help bring the minister up to speed that these are the facts of the matter as dutifully reported by the media since the middle of August, 2016 in case it has skipped his memory.I need not be a lawyer like the minister to state that as a civilised community of men based on law, all parties and institutions are imposed upon to respect the integrity and jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal and, await the outcome of the court process set in motion in accordance with the laws of the land.The Honourable Minister of Sports said in his television interview that he does not know the merits and demerits of this matter, because he has not been briefed. This is a fair enough position to maintain. In spite of his ignorance of these issues, the Minister of Sports goes on to say that the reason the police is looking for Shehu Dikko has nothing to do with his performance of his duties at LMC.With all due respect to the minister, this is a wild, unfair, partial and dangerous categorical statement to make, given his earlier claim of ignorance of the merits or otherwise of the matter. This statement would appear to be designed to aid and justify those who have taken football matters to court but will not respect the same court and allow the case to be fought out in court till the end. Instead, we are assailed daily by the news of the desperate efforts of these individuals to thwart the process of law with all manner of false claims and underhand tactics. This is more so when the Nigeria Police Force, rightly under the law, has not declared Shehu Dikko and Salihu Abubakar wanted to the knowledge of all Nigerians.This whole shameful episode would, therefore, appear to be calculated at preventing Dikko and Abubakar from exercising their rights to appeal against decisions of the Jos High Court that they feel is unjust and oppressive.As a minister of the federal republic, he should not be seen granting interviews or making categorical comments about matters outside his knowledge. His position is too weighty to allow him make flippant comments, particularly about the safety and liberty of other Nigerians. Surely, his apparent knowledge of Socrates, who the minister quoted, should remind him that none is entitled or allowed to bear false witness against his neighbour or fellow citizens.For the sake of public peace and order, and the sanctity of our collective public space, let all those who have invoked the authority of our courts, including Giwa FC and its sympathisers, allow the legal process to continue unhindered or short-circuited by low and dirty tricks.*Edoreh is chairman of Lagos State chapter of Sports Writer Association of Nigeria (SWAN)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Fred EdorehThe issues between Giwa FC and the League Management Company (LMC) over the expulsion of the Jos-based team from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) are currently pending before the Court of Appeal in the Plateau State capital. It is public knowledge that all parties and their counsels are before the court and have filed their respective papers before that honorable court.The order of the Jos High Court of committal to prison of the Chairman of LMC, Shehu Dikko and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the league body, Abubakar Salihu, for failure to reinstate Giwa FC to the league, is one of the several orders being challenged by LMC before the Court of Appeal. LMC has also filed for a stay of execution, and setting aside, of this order.last_img read more

first_imgAshantigold coach Bashir Hayford believes Sunday’s Super Cup game against Medeama will be a perfect dress rehearsal for his side ahead of their CAF Champions League qualifier.The Miners have a date on Valentine’s Day against Algerian side MO Bejaia in the first round qualifier at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi.However, the Obuasi side will have to face FA Cup winners Medeama in a traditional curtain raiser before the all-important Champions League clash.Hayford is excited about his side’s prospects and believes the Tarkwa side will give his side the needed test.“It is a very good opportunity because everybody knows we haven’t started the league,” Hayford said.“Bejaia have won about six matches and they are not bad at all. They are really in competition.” “We’ve been looking for opportunities and we had the G6.Sometimes you can play a lower club but you cannot get what you want.”On the game itself, Hayford feels both teams will sell a good game for fans.“Being a club also preparing for Africa, I think it is going to be a nice game and it will be a good opportunity for us to see how prepared we are to face the Algerians.”Ashantigold enter this game as league champions.
