Maradona hits out at Van Gaal

first_imgDiego Maradona has likened Louis van Gaal to the devil over his treatment of mis-firing Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao. Falcao has been on the bench for the last five games and that has not gone down well with Maradona. The former Argentina star, speaking at a press conference in Bogota, Colombia, to promote a charity match, criticised United boss Van Gaal for his handling of the two-time Ballon d’Or nominee. “Van Gaal is not a nice guy,” Maradona said when asked about the Dutchman’s handling of Falcao. “Van Gaal is closer to the devil than anything.” The Argentinian, who visited Old Trafford to watch United lose to Liverpool last year, believes the fact that Falcao has had to recover from a serious knee injury has made his adaptation to English football harder. The 29-year-old was ruled out of the World Cup because of the injury he suffered in January and he has been hindered by a number of niggling problems since he signed for United. “His time was cut short after the injury and he has to adapt to the move,” Maradona said at the press conference shown on the YouTube channel of TV station Canal Capital. Falcao looks set to be on the bench again on Sunday when United host City in the Manchester derby. United have the option of buying him for £43.2million in the summer, but the player’s form so far this term suggests they are unlikely to do so. Press Associationcenter_img United thought they had pulled off one of the best deals of the summer transfer window when they signed Falcao on a season-long loan from Monaco. The Colombian came to United with an impressive goalscoring record but, eight months later, he has found the net just four times for the club. last_img read more

NOT IN THE CARDS: Orange fails to sew up bowl bid in loss to Louisville

first_img Published on November 5, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Derrell Smith couldn’t explain why Louisville packed more than its entire first-half offense into two second-half drives. Behind the podium, the senior Syracuse linebacker Smith could only rifle off a look of complete bewilderment. ‘I have no idea,’ Smith said. ‘We’re going to watch the film, see what we did wrong, fix it and go on.’ For a team that amassed 106 total offensive yards by halftime, Louisville bunched all of that and more into those two second-half drives that led the Cardinals (5-4, 2-2 Big East) to a 28-20 victory Saturday in front of 40,735 inside the Carrier Dome. There would be no celebration of bowl eligibility for SU (6-3, 3-2 Big East) on this day, no celebration of a winning season. Instead, it was a celebration for Louisville. A celebration of the program’s first road Big East win since Oct. 13, 2007, at Cincinnati. There was the first drive, the 10-play, 60-yard push that came in the opening minutes of the second half. Running back Jeremy Wright, who filled in admirably for the injured Bilal Powell, ended the drive with his second touchdown of the day. That gave the Cardinals a 21-17 lead from which it would never look back. And there was the second drive, the methodical 12-play, 90-yard march that spanned the end of the third and beginning of the fourth quarters. The drive ended in a 21-yard touchdown pass from Louisville quarterback Justin Burke to wide receiver Josh Chichester, after a beautiful play-action fake left Chichester open and ready to run into the end zone.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Two drives, 150 yards. SU was down 28-20 and couldn’t recover. ‘They took chances,’ SU defensive coordinator Scott Shafer said of Louisville’s offense. ‘They came in with a little bit of a different offense. They made some great adjustments.’ And so, instead of a celebration that was six years in the making, a normally stout defense watched as the Dome fell silent and Chichester ran to meet his teammates on the Louisville sideline. The SU defense, one that had punished its last two opponents on the road at West Virginia and Cincinnati, had been torn apart by a makeshift offense without its two most important players — Powell and quarterback Adam Froman. Louisville adjusted by working in two tight end and overload sets in its offense. The Cardinals ran plays Shafer and the SU defense hadn’t seen on film during the week. And they made key conversions, including going 2-for-2 on fourth down. On fourth-and-4, during the second touchdown drive of the second half, Burke’s conversion to Andrell Smith set up the 21-yard touchdown a play later. ‘On fourth down, it was a heck of a play by that kid,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said. ‘They threw the ball behind him, and the kid made a good play. That is what it is about. They executed, and we didn’t when we needed to.’ Syracuse’s only second-half score was a Ross Krautman field goal after it had taken a 17-14 lead into the half. SU took that lead in the first half because of its bread-and-butter run game. SU’s game-tying 12-play, 70-yard drive in the second quarter was facilitated by running backs Delone Carter and Antwon Bailey. Bailey rushed for 19 yards on the drive. Carter rushed for 31, culminating in an eight-yard power run in to the end zone to knot the game at 14-14. ‘The matchup was our offense vs. their defense,’ Marrone said. ‘Going into the week, we knew they were going to bring a lot of pressure. We’re a young offense, and it was important to see how we would handle it.’ And the SU offense couldn’t play its part. Despite the two second-half drives, the Syracuse defense twice made the third-down stops it needed to give the SU offense a chance. Each time, it went three-and-out. The third time, the Orange couldn’t hold the Cardinals. And on a gusty fourth-and-1 call from its own 40-yard line with 3:18 left, Burke rumbled behind center to pick up the first down and effectively end the game. Louisville stole what could have been a bowl-clinching win for the Orange. Even if its two premier offensive weapons didn’t play a single down. ‘Too little, too late,’ Shafer said. ‘We never made a play where we could shift the momentum and get the ball back to our offense with a short field, and that’s what we have to do.’ bplogiur@syr.edulast_img read more

Thursday night’s Duels set the rest of the field for the Daytona 500 — the results of Duel 1 determined the inside row, and the results of Duel 2 set the outside row.Below is the complete starting lineup for the 2020 Daytona 500.Daytona 500 lineupStarting Pos.Driver1.Ricky Stenhouse Jr.2.Alex Bowman3.Joey Logano4.William Byron5.Aric Almirola6.Jimmie Johnson7.Ryan Newman8.Kyle Larson9.Brad Keselowski10.Kevin Harvick11.Bubba Wallace12.Cole Custer13.Austin Dillon14.Erik Jones15.Martin Truex Jr.16.Matt DiBenedetto17.Christopher Bell18.Kurt Busch19.Chris Buescher20.Ross Chastain21.Denny Hamlin22.Tyler Reddick23.John Hunter Nemechek24.Ty Dillon25.Chase Elliott26.Michael McDowell27.Ryan Blaney28.Kyle Busch29.Clint Bowyer30.David Ragan31.Ryan Preece32.Timmy Hill33.Justin Haley34.Brennan Poole35.Quin Houff36.Corey LaJoie37.Joey Gase38.B.J.

He finished eighth. MORE: Daytona 500 TV, live steam infoIn the nightcap, Hendrick Motorsports teammates William Byron and Jimmie Johnson finished 1-2 after a near-wreck on the final lap. Byron will start fourth on Sunday while Johnson will roll off sixth. That finish means three Hendrick cars will start in the top six and nose to tail on the outside row. Hendrick driver Kyle Bowman will start second after earning that spot in pole qualifying.Kyle Busch, the 2019 Cup Series champion, will start 28th after finishing 13th in the second Duel race. Daniel Suarez lost his chance to make the 500 after he and Ryan Blaney made contact with their cars near the entrance to pit road on Lap 30 of the night’s first 60-lap race. The crash sent Suarez’s car into the infield grass, which caused extensive damage to the car’s splitter and hood. NASCAR granted Blaney’s team permission to switch to a backup car for the Daytona 500. Blaney will start at the rear of the field Sunday.last_img read more

PGA’s new schedule for 2020 is a welcome, major conflict between Masters, U.S. Open and NFL

first_imgAs for Sunday — given the ratings of the Masters — airing the early final-round coverage on CBS Sports Network doesn’t seem like the best option for CBS. There’s the potential of moving the co-leader pairing tee time to earlier in the day to finish by 4:25 p.m. ET, and not have any 1 p.m. ET NFL games air on CBS.Going deeper into the NFL and college football into unfamiliar conflict makes the PGA Tour’s major adjustment more of an issue for CBS than Fox. Many viewers used to Sunday football or Sunday golf being separate will need to enter new multiple-screen territory in the fall.However you slice it — or pass it — the conflicts are good problems to have, and bring rare special doubleheaders at a time when it will be difficult to not want to overdose on televised sports. The PGA Tour’s schedule of major championships typically sticks to spring and summer ,to avoid a weekend collision course with the NFL. Postponement related to the coronavirus pandemic will change that in 2020.Although the 149th Open Championship, also known as the British Open is canceled, the PGA Championship, U.S. Open and the Masters all have official new dates. Moving the PGA Championship to August 6-9 (TPC Park, San Francisco) is no big deal, given that, before moving to mid-May in 2019, that tournament was played in mid-August. But now the U.S. Open (Winged Foot, New York) and Masters (Augusta National) will be played past-Labor Day, both finishing on NFL Sundays in the fall. That brings up a couple of interesting broadcast challenges, given both majors’ final rounds air on the two networks with Sunday afternoon NFL rights:MORE: April 6, 1994 — Jim Everett blasts Jim Rome on live TV for calling him ‘Chris’U.S. Open vs. Week 2 NFLThe U.S. Open, whose television rights belong to Fox Sports, will take place from Sept. 17-20. Joe Buck is the lead golf announcer — as well as the main NFL and MLB man for Fox — so it will be similar to when he calls the World Series in October, with Troy Aikman being re-partnered with Thom Brennaman or another top in-house play-by-play man. That also means Buck has a conflict for staying on the call for “Thursday Night Football” after the first round earlier that week, unless the Giants or Jets were hosting the game and he wanted to attempt covering both.For Saturday’s third round, Fox will likely avoid competition from a massive Week 3 college football game between SEC rivals Georgia and Alabama, which figures to be played in primetime.For Sunday, this would likely mean that Fox doesn’t carry a national 4:25 p.m. ET NFL games that Sunday, with CBS having a marquee game with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo going head-to-head with Buck and Paul Azinger with the closing action at Winged Foot. With FS1, Fox has an easy pivot option for U.S Open coverage during the 1 p.m. ET NFL games.MORE: Donald Trump believes 2020 NFL season will start on time, which doesn’t mean anythingMasters vs. Week 10 NFLThe Masters, which would have aired on CBS this week to finish early evening on Easter Sunday, is now slated to be played from Nov. 12-15. Unlike Buck, Nantz’s other main gigs — March Madness and golf —don’t usually have a conflict with NFL games. This means Romo will need to work his magic with a replacement partner on the 15th.As for the SEC on CBS that Saturday, their game of choice likely will be moved to nighttime. It would make sense to have either South Carolina-LSU or Tennessee-Georgia in nearby Athens air after the sun sets on the third round of the Masters.last_img read more

Hamilton slams ‘white-dominated’ F1 for silence over Floyd death

first_imgLewis Hamilton said the problem of racism was not confined to America But he added: “There can be no peace until our so-called leaders make change. This is not just America, this is the UK, this is Spain, this is Italy and all over.“The way minorities are treated has to change, how you educate those in your country of equality, racism, classism and that we are all the same!“We are not born with racism and hate in our hearts, it is taught by those we look up to.”Basketball legend Jordan joined a chorus of voices from the NBA, NFL and other US sports demanding change for black Americans, but the calls weren’t limited to the United States.French footballer Marcus Thuram and England international Jadon Sancho both called for justice for Floyd after scoring in Germany’s Bundesliga. Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | World champion Lewis Hamilton criticised the “biggest of stars” in “white-dominated” Formula One for failing to speak out against racism as protests erupted around the United States.The Mercedes driver warned “I know who you are and I see you” as he accused his fellow drivers of “staying silent” following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, during his arrest in Minneapolis.The videotaped incident has triggered unrest in several cities and led to an outpouring of condemnation from top athletes including Michael Jordan and Serena Williams.“I see those of you who are staying silent, some of you the biggest of stars yet you stay silent in the midst of injustice,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.“Not a sign from anybody in my industry which of course is a white-dominated sport. I’m one of the only people of colour there yet I stand alone.“I would have thought by now you would see why this happens and say something about it but you can’t stand alongside us. Just know I know who you are and I see you.”Hamilton, the six-time world champion, said he supported only peaceful protesters, not those who have looted stores and set fire to buildings.last_img read more
