Hughton focuses on the positives after Burnley loss

first_imgAfter losing 1-0 at Burnley on Saturday, Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton says he’s delighted his team took six points from three games in a week.Brighton defeated Huddersfield away and Crystal Palace at home, before losing 1-0 to Burnley at Turf Moor, and Hughton feels they should not beat themselves up considering they won six points.“Overall I’ve got to be delighted. After the first two games, if we’d come here [Turf Moor] and not turned up, then it would have been a disappointing end to the week,” Hughton told the club’s website.“But I think we came here and had a go — I can’t accuse the players of not having a go — so we have to look at the week as not being bad.“We’ve played 16 games and nine of them have been away from home, so that’s also something to take into consideration.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“What pleases me is that outside of that top six, most teams can give one another a run. We’ve probably proved that at our best we are a match for any team outside of the top six.“What Burnley did last season was a wonderful feat, but you’ve got to have so many things going for you. Can that happen in the future? Well, that’s the future.“Our thoughts are still about improving ourselves and trying to make sure the gap to the bottom three is as big as possible.“At the moment it’s just about establishing ourselves. I still like to see us as a developing club and we’ll see where that takes us.”last_img read more

Holland England must change to win major tournaments

first_imgEngland assistant manager Steve Holland believes that they must be brave and attempts changes or else they will continue to come short in major tournamentsThe Three Lions’ sole major honour in football comes from the 1966 World Cup where they won at home led by the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.Since then, the closest England have ever come to glory in a major international competition comes from two more semi-final appearances in the World Cup and another in Euro 1996.Holland, who was a part of Gareth Southgate’s coaching staff at the 2018 World Cup, believes the national side have made progress following their last four appearance at Russia.But the former Chelsea assistant coach admits England need to take a bold approach if they are to succeed on the big stage.“When you reflect on the World Cup as a whole, we definitely made progress but we weren’t perfect,” said Holland, according to the Telegraph.“Gareth’s mantra from the start, particularly given his own personal experience, is that he’s not afraid of trying things.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I don’t mean to be critical of any England team or any England manager in recent history, but the fact of the matter is, I’m 48 and I’ve never seen England in a final.“I’ve only seen England in two semi-finals up until this summer so although we are a proud footballing nation, the reality is we have not been very good on the big stage.“If we were to continue along the same lines as history then maybe we’d get the same outcome. So there was a need to look at things differently and not be afraid to try.“That’s really come from Gareth which is not as easy to do as it is to say. The challenge was not just to do OK and keep the pressure off, the challenge is to win and although the summer was good we didn’t want. And we felt we might be able to adjust it to increase the chances of winning.”England will be competing in the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League this summer with the Netherlands awaiting them on June 6 in Guimarães, Portugal.The other semi-finalists for the competition are hosts Portugal and Switzerland.last_img read more

Petit James Rodriguezs quality is a mix of Cesc Fabregas

first_imgEmmanuel Petit believes Arsenal would be wise to make a move for the “quality” James Rodriguez as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey.The Wales international is reportedly closing in on a free transfer to Juventus for next season with his contract at Arsenal to expire in June.Therefore, the Gunners are in need of a new star midfielder with the club’s highest earner Mesut Ozil struggling to find his best form.Young Barcelona star Denis Suarez has been touted as a potential signing with former Arsenal defender Lauren believing he would be a better option than James.But Petit, who himself starred in the Arsenal midfield between 1997 to 2000, thinks otherwise as James’ quality is a mixture of ex-Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas and Real Madrid playmaker Isco.The Colombia international’s loan deal at Bayern Munich will expire at the end of the season and it remains unclear whether or not the German giants will take their €42m buy option to sign him permanently from Real Madrid.And Petit believes Arsenal would be wise to make a move for James.“I have known James Rodriguez from when he played for Monaco and I think he is a very good attacking midfielder,” Petit told the Daily Mirror.“I believe he is a proper No. 10, I like him in the middle of the park controlling the game.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“He has this quality – it’s a mix of [Cesc] Fabregas and Isco – and I think he would be a very good signing for Arsenal.“If I had to choose between them [James and Suarez] – knowing the situation with Ramsey – Arsenal definitely need an attacking midfielder and need to get a player who has the personality to direct a game and not hide all the time.“I think James Rodriguez is one of them.”The French World Cup winner cannot understand why Ramsey would join Juventus in the first place and warned the Welsh star he’s making a “mistake”.“I don’t want to be negative but I don’t know why he is going to Juventus, honestly,” said Petit on Ramsey.“Serie A? It is not the Premier League guys.“The Premier League is the best in the world, it is the most competitive championship.“You see it every year, you have three or four teams fighting for the title.“You don’t see that in Italy, in Spain, or France or wherever so I think he is making a mistake.”last_img read more

He was found to be a sexually violent predator in 2009 and was committed to the Department of State Hospitals to undergo treatment.Last year, Smith petitioned the Superior Court to be released through the Conditional Release Program for sex offenders and, after a trial, Judge Howard Shore found Smith amenable to being released.David Jimenez, who currently lives near where Smith is going to reside on Desert Rose Ranch Road, told the judge he didn’t think it was fair that Smith was being placed in Jacumba Hot Springs. Jacumba Hot Springs is located in the far reaches of southeastern San Diego County.“I’m very uncomfortable,” Jimenez said outside court. “I do think Jacumba is a dumping ground for predators.”Jimenez, who is moving closer to the city of San Diego for health reasons, said another sexually violent predator lived in the same home on Desert Rose Ranch Road previously and caused no problems, but he believes Smith moving in will drop the value of his home as he tries to sell it.
