Gerrard: Liverpool should ‘start working on a statue’ for Klopp ahead of title…

By on September 24, 2020

first_img Loading… Gerrard says the German boss will deserve the same tribute once Liverpool’s transformation from also-rans into European and English champions is complete. He said: “Knowing Jurgen, he won’t want to be put in that bracket. I know what he’s like, he’s humble and respectful. When you look at the scale of the job he’s done, for sure he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as those iconic managers. “What you need to take into consideration is that when Jurgen took over Liverpool they weren’t close to being the best team in the country, they weren’t even in the top four. “To come to Liverpool when he did, get to the amount of finals that he has, deliver the sixth European Cup and then deliver the first league title after 30 years… “For me, someone like Jurgen should be rewarded now. It seems like in football we often wait until people get older before their achievements are fully recognised. “But I know the owners of Liverpool won’t let that happen. When Jurgen delivers the league they should already be starting work on a statue of him.” Gerrard added on the “relief” he will feel when Liverpool finally hold the trophy aloft: “You don’t want to count your chickens until it’s certain but I think we all know that it’s inevitable. “For me, there will be a lot of relief. Being a fan for a lot of those years and being a player and coming ever so close, you know that this is the one that people have craved. read also:Klopp lauds Liverpool’s young talent after Blackburn humiliation “This is the bread and butter of the club. I grew up watching all the successful Liverpool teams winning leagues. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do it myself. “I’m a fan now and I always will be until the day I go into a grave. When they get it done and they lift that trophy, it will be 100 per cent happiness for me. I can’t wait for it. I’ll be the proudest man on the planet.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Liverpool will be confirmed as the new Premier League champions if they pick up six points from their final nine fixtures of the 2019-20 season. Klopp’s men had established an unassailable 25-point lead over holder Manchester City before the coronavirus stopped play in March, having won all but two of their first 29 games. Project restart will begin when City take on Arsenal on Wednesday, and if they lose, it will open the door for Liverpool to ascend to the top-flight throne by beating Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby. Club legend Gerrard, who took up his first head coaching role with Rangers in 2018, says Klopp has set the standard for all managers to aspire to, and he has been delighted to see Liverpool reach new heights under his stewardship. “Let’s cut to the chase, sitting here, doing this interview right now, I think Jurgen Klopp is the best manager in the world,” the ex-Reds midfielder told The Athletic. “I know there are a lot of successful managers about. Pep Guardiola is exceptional. Carlo Ancelotti is exceptional too and I think Everton are really lucky to have him with his CV. I could name many more. “Having had the experience of being a manager for the past two years, you realise how difficult and challenging the job is. I have nothing but respect for Jurgen. “The way the man handles himself, the way he’s been with myself, the way he goes about his business, the way he comes across. I think he’s got a heart and I think he’s got a head. He just works for Liverpool. He has come and taken the club to the next level.” Once Klopp delivers Liverpool’s 19th league title, he will go down in history alongside the club’s legendary former managers Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, both of whom sit outside of Anfield in statue form.center_img Steven Gerrard has said Liverpool should already be “starting work on a statue” of Jurgen Klopp ahead of their title coronation.last_img read more

Battle Royale in Bamako as Mali Take on Guinea

By on September 17, 2020

first_imgAFCON 2021 QUALIFIERS Grudge game in Accra as Black Stars take on Bafana BafanaAction began Wednesday in the Group Phase of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) with 48 matches to be played on Match Day 1 and MatchDay 2 between November 13 and 19. Last month, the group stage was completed by the quartet of Chad, Gambia, South Sudan and Sao Tome e Principe after victories in the preliminaries.This stage offers a mouth-watering prospect for the big guns the chance to assert their influence after not too impressive scorecard at the last AFCON in Egypt.Yet it would be royale West African battle in the Group A fixture between Mali and Guinea in Bamako since both sides failed to last the distance in Egypt where they were shown the exit in the Round of 16. It will surely going to be a new beginning for Guinea under new French coach Didier Six, who replaced Paul Put while Les Aigles of Mali continue their chase for glory under Mohamed Magassouba who supervised their last AFCON campaign in Egypt.Equally, there should be fireworks in Group B based on the pedigree of the two combatants when Burkina Faso entertains Uganda in Ouagadougou on Thursday. It would indeed be a fresh beginning for Cranes of Uganda after their Round of 16 ouster in Egypt following the appointment of Northern Irishman Johnny McKinstry as replacement for French tactician Sebastien Desabre.Another prestige game is certainly the Group C clash in Cape Coast between the Black Stars of Ghana and Bafana Bafana of South Africa even as both teams shake off recent lethargy performances.This encounter would be 13th between the two countries but Thursday’s encounter in Cape Coast will be the first competitive match for South Africa’s new handler Molefi Ntseki who last month started his coaching tenure with Bafana Bafana on a winning note with a hard-fought 2-1 defeat of Mali 2-1 in the Nelson Mandela Challenge title in Port Elizabeth.But how well Bafana Bafana would fare under the deluge of Ghanaian supporters in Cape Coast yet remains to be seen as the Ghana Football Association (GFA) under a new helmsman (Kurt Okraku) hinted about the launch of a ‘passion-igniting campaign’ tagged ‘#Bring Back The Love’ to coincide with Black Stars’ AFCON opener.AFCON 2021(Thursday)Mali v GuineaGhana v S’AfricaCongo DR v GabonMo’bique’ v RwandaEgypt v KenyaTogo v ComorosAlgeria v ZambiaShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Panel explores the impact of the federal budget

By on

first_imgOn Wednesday, the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, The Can Kicks Back and USC EdMonth hosted “Generational Equity: The Impact of the Federal Budget on Young Americans” to discuss the effect of the debt on the millenial generation.In debt · Harlem Children’s Zone President Geoffrey Canada speaks to the event moderator, professor David Belasco, about the federal debt. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe Can Kicks Back is non-partisan campaign that aims to educate, organize and mobilize young Americans in order to promote a sustainable federal budget that is fair to all generations. The program featured guests Geoffrey Canada, President of the Harlem Children’s Zone and Stanley Druckenmiller, former chairman of Duquesne Capital Management and was moderated by David Belasco, co-director and adjunct professor at Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. Nick Triano and Ryan Schoenike, two of the co-founders of The Can Kicks Back also attended the event.“The reason why we’re stopping here at USC is that we really need to educate [the students] because they’re really not informed about the issue, and why they need to be active in the first place,” Schoenike said.Druckenmiller is an American hedge fund manager and chairs the board of Harlem’s Children’s Zone. He was also the most charitable man in America in 2009, donating $705 million to various foundations.Geoffrey Canada is the president and CEO of Harlem’s Children Zone, a nonprofit organization that runs programs that are aimed at breaking the cycle of generational poverty for impoverished children and families in central Harlem. He has been awarded several honorary doctorates from various prestigious universities, including a Doctor of Laws from Princeton and a Doctor of Humane Letters from University of Pennsylvania.The Can Kicks Back serves as the millennial outreach partner of Fix the Debt, a nonpartisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path. Founded in 2012 by five people. The Can Kicks Back has since grown to more than 100 chapters in 38 states with over 20,000 supporters.“We’re very excited to do an event [at USC] with both [Druckenmiller and Canada] because they are very passionate about the issue and they can explain the consequences very well,” Schoenike said.Canada expressed his belief that student education on the debt is important, because he was raising kids through the Harlem Children’s Zone to be productive members of society and couldn’t let them out into a society that was functionally broken because of debt.Druckenmiller spoke more of his personal background, and of how he went from dropping out of graduate school to making millions of dollars a year, as well as his love for philanthropy.“I have a talent for compounding money,” Druckenmiller said jokingly. “But the best part of it is seeing it at work.”Druckenmiller led a presentation about the issues with the national debt, and how spending, especially among entitlements, is predicted to increase in the next few years. Special attention was paid to how spending for the elderly has increased drastically in the past 50 years and is predicted to continue increasing, while spending for children and youth had dropped in the same periods.Both Druckenmiller and Canada expressed their belief that reforms in both spending and education as well as a mentality shift about entitlements were needed for America to pull itself out of debt. A short Q&A session followed the presentation.The program maintained a relatively lighthearted feel, with both Druckenmiller and Canada often using humor in their speeches. Many students in the MBA program at the Marshall School of Business attended, as well as professors and teachers from the surrounding area including LMU and UCLA. Karen Symms Gallagher, dean of the USC Rossier School of Education and John Deasy, superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District were also present.Students were especially impressed by the presenters’ knowledge and experience.“We got to be exposed to some of the larger contextual problems in our society, such as education and government spending,” said Russell Yue, a freshman majoring in accounting. “I also found it really interesting how people are really devoting their lives to change young people’s lives and foster a better community for the future.”Tiffanie Chung, a freshman majoring in accounting, agreed that the speakers were fascinating.“We’re actually really lucky to have [Druckenmiller and Canada] here, and to hear them talk about their experiences and the world is interesting,” she said.

No. 3 Syracuse drops game against No. 16 Boston College, 13-8

By on September 16, 2020

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 19, 2016 at 4:37 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langer No. 3 Syracuse (7-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) lost the third of its last five games, falling to No. 16 Boston College (6-3, 1-2), 13-8, Saturday afternoon in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.Boston College started the scoring attack early, as Sarah Mannelly scored just 56 seconds into the game after winning the opening draw. But Riley Donahue responded just under three minutes later to tie the game at 1-1.That sequence foreshadowed the rest of the first half. The Eagles would score to go up by one, and the Orange would respond shortly thereafter. Throughout the half, it never took Syracuse longer than 3:39 to respond to an Eagle goal. The half ended with BC up, 6-5, after Tess Chandler scored with 3:01 left in the half.But SU ran out of answers in the second half. Mannelly scored to open up the half again and Nicole Levy scored to make it a 7-6 game. That was the last time the Orange would be within one. Over the next 14 minutes, the Eagles went on a 6-1 run, highlighted by two more Mannelly goals, to open up a 13-7 lead. Emily Resnick scored with 6:50 left, but it was too little, too late.In its the weakest performance of the year, the Orange tallied just two assists to match a season-low. It’s the first time this year that Syracuse never held a lead, and it’s also the first time that an opponent won more draws than SU did.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will look to rebound when it takes on No. 5 Notre Dame (9-1, 3-1) in South Bend, Indiana, next Saturday at noon.

NBA trade rumors: Heat interested in ‘salary-designed’ deal for Cavaliers’ JR Smith

By on August 16, 2020

first_imgJR Smith could be on a new team soon.The Heat are interested in a “salary-designed trade” with the Cavaliers for the 33-year-old shooting guard, according to a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania, which cites unidentified league sources. Smith will become a free agent after 2019-20.“We have a trade chip in JR Smith, and his contract, where we can take on some money that other teams are trying to get some cap relief from,” Cleveland general manager Koby Altman told reporters in mid-April. “We are actually the only team in the NBA that can provide guaranteed cap relief until July 1. We can guarantee that right now.“So, we’re going to keep on being aggressive adding those assets because we do eventually want to consolidate and be really good at some point.”Smith was traded from the Knicks to Cleveland in January 2015. He was a valuable contributor during the Cavaliers’ championship run in 2015-16 but he has declined since then.He averaged 8.3 points in 2017-18 and just 6.7 during his 11 appearances last season. The veteran has also played for New Orleans and Denver over his 15-year NBA career.The Cavaliers finished 2018-19 with a 19-63 record and missed the playoffs. They mutually agreed to part ways with coach Larry Drew after the season and hired John Beilein away from Michigan to replace him. John Beilein explains decision to leave Michigan for Cavaliers NBA trade rumors: Cavaliers unlikely to deal Kevin Love, would have to be ‘overwhelmed’ by offercenter_img The report notes:”The Heat also have contracts they could look to move in the offseason in a deal such as this and would have to absorb Smith’s deal.”Smith played in just 11 games in 2018-19 before he agreed to part ways with the Cavaliers and sat out the rest of the season. Cleveland had a chance to move Smith before the deadline but decided to hold on to him with the hopes of dealing him this summer, according to an earlier report from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Related News “Rebuild is not a word we’re going to use here, I saw it more as a renaissance,” Beilein told reporters at his introductory press conference. “Look at all those banners up there. It’s been done before. Why can’t it be done again?”The Cavaliers hold the fifth pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.last_img read more

British Open 2019 tech check: Tracing game improvement for the world’s best players

By on

first_img“The top drive is 320 yards. Johnson is following with 315. We can do some cool features with those long drives and show it in fireworks mode. We take all of the long drives, put them into a group and send them all off at once.””Fireworks mode” is a pretty apt term considering the field at The Open this week will be looking to produce just that out on the course at Portrush.And who knows? Perhaps the man who gets his hands on the Claret Jug on Sunday may have done so with the aid of information he gleaned from Toptracer. British Open 2019: Jon Rahm feels at home at Royal Portrush British Open 2019: Justin Rose questions scheduling changes for 2019 majors British Open 2019: Tiger Woods lauds Brooks Koepka despite apparent Portrush snub PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — It does not matter whether you’re Tiger Woods or an aspiring top-shelf amateur, a club pro or merely a recreational golfer, the truth is any golfer who has picked up a club has at some point or another hit a duff shot.Don’t lie about it. You’ve done it, I’ve done it. Every professional golfer has at one point or another done it. It’s OK, it happens. After that initial fury bubbling up inside you subsides, you realize it’s all part of the learning process. Now that anecdotal learning experience of the driving range is being enhanced thanks to the Toptracer technology, which Omnisport checked out at Royal Portrush’s practice range ahead of the 148th British Open.For those unfamiliar with the company, the funky ball-tracking lines on broadcasts tracing the flight of a player’s shot are made possible by Toptracer.The initial idea essentially was to enhance the viewing experience of fans watching at home by tracking the flight of a ball and then adding graphics so you can see the height, trajectory and destination of a shot.In 2012, Toptracer expanded its reach to driving ranges in a bid to improve the experience off the practice mats.”I think this really suits every standard as a golfer. As a beginner your eye isn’t particularly well trained on what the golf ball could be doing and so very often you see when a beginner will look for a golf ball and see where it’s gone,” Paul Williams, General Manager of Toptracer Europe, told Omnisport. “By having the information right there in the [driving range] bay on a 21-inch touch screen, giving you feedback on how high it’s gone and what direction, gives them insight, education and a journey into the sport. “They instantly become more engaged, we’re seeing lots of our venues running beginner golf groups and booking straight onto improved courses because they’re getting hooked straight way.”Ever seen those funky lines and graphics showing the trajectory of a golf ball on TV or at the driving range?That’s the work of the folks at @ToptracerI had the pleasure of spending some time at their tent ahead of #TheOpen for @OmnisportNews pic.twitter.com/7fG2O7mSQJ— Peter Hanson (@PeterHanson89) July 17, 2019Even at just shy of 5.30 p.m. local time on Tuesday, when Omnisport visited the Toptracer tent, there were plenty of professionals honing their skills, and throughout the day the grandstand behind the practice range was packed with patrons trying to get a glimpse of their favorite golfers – a certain local hero by the name of Rory McIlroy proving a particularly popular draw.The LED screens to the left of the range — featuring Toptracer graphics — do provide a genuinely enhanced experience in this part of the week, but the players also gain useful information such as ball speed, curve and apex.The tournament range setup has been used at The Open since St. Andrews four years ago. “Each year more players are becoming more familiar with the technology available to them,” Williams said.”It’s quite interesting. We see very similar reactions from the best players in the world to people we see at our driving ranges, where they’ll hit a shot and after watching a second or two of ball flight they’ll look at the screen and go ‘right, what did the ball do?’ “It’s just for that confirmation of data that they’re looking for to improve their game and, for these guys here, making sure they’re in the best condition for The Open Championship.”We have some of the players’ caddies pop into the station to the side of the driving range. They’ll come in and ask for their player to be put up on the boards.  “Each of them can have their data on their warmup rounds, and obviously before they go out in the tournament — the tech is live until Sunday when they leave the range.”Tuesday at #TheOpen:Total Shots for the day: 14,817Longest drives of the day:#1 C. Kim 319.0#2 D. Johnson 314.9#3 K. Kisner 314.7#4 C. Shinkwin 312.9#5 M. Schmid 312.8 pic.twitter.com/JkPVtElNJG— Toptracer (@Toptracer) July 16, 2019So, what about behind the scenes? If you’re imagining a futuristic room packed with funky gadgets, then you’d be very much mistaken. It’s a beautifully simple setup, with only a handful of staff in the tent with laptops and screens.One such man helping to bring the practice sessions to life is Dustin Thomas, who helps run Toptracer’s range operations.Part of his job involves hitting a few practice shots before the players arrive and picking which names to include on the LED board.”I pick and choose based on what they’re hitting, and we do like to listen to the fans and also the players,” he said, while demonstrating the different features available.”If someone is requested we like to choose them. But also we like to use the long hitters out there and use some pretty cool drives.”So, who’ve been the big hitters so far at the practice range at Royal Portrush?”Right now we have Dustin Johnson, Kevin Kisner and C. [Chan] Kim on the leaderboards. That was when the wind was kind of down,” Thomas added. In a bygone era it may have been a friend or relative offering “advice” on why your ball has gone inexplicably careering to the right.You lifted your head too soon, you over-rotated, you’re swinging too quickly. Yes, Dad, all right, I get it, that was a terrible shot. Related Newslast_img read more

Most teams hold their training camps relatively close to home at designated, team-owned training facilities. Others have deeply rooted traditions that take them away from their typical stomping grounds. The Steelers, for example, have been going to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa., for training camp since 1966. The Panthers have traveled to Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C., for training camp in every year of their existence, though that tradition will end soon.Of course, teams like the Bengals, Falcons, Patriots, Saints and others choose to hold their training camps at their permanent team facilities/stadiums. It’s a matter of preference.Below are the NFL training camp sites and locations for all 32 teams in 2019.TeamSiteLocationArizona CardinalsState Farm StadiumGlendale, Ariz.Atlanta FalconsAtlanta Falcons Training FacilityFlowery Branch, Ga.Baltimore RavensUnder Armour Performance CenterOwings Mills, Md.Buffalo BillsSt. John Fisher CollegeRochester, N.Y.Carolina PanthersWofford CollegeSpartanburg, S.C.Chicago BearsOlivet Nazarene UniversityBourbonnais, Ill.Cincinnati BengalsPaul Brown StadiumCincinnati, OhioCleveland BrownsCleveland Browns Training ComplexBerea, OhioDallas CowboysMarriott Residence InnOxnard, Calif.Denver BroncosUCHealth Training CenterEnglewood, Colo.Detroit LionsDetroit Lions Training FacilityAllen Park, Mich.Green Bay PackersSt. Norbert CollegeDe Pere, Wisc.Houston TexansHouston Methodist Training CenterHouston, TexasIndianapolis ColtsGrand ParkWestfield, Ind.Jacksonville JaguarsTIAA Bank FieldJacksonville, Fla.Kansas City ChiefsMissouri Western State UniversitySt. Joseph, Mo.LA ChargersJack Hammett Sports ComplexCosta Mesa, Calif.LA RamsUniversity of California, IrvineIrvine, Calif.Miami DolphinsBaptist Health Training FacilityDavie, Fla.Minnesota VikingsTCO Performance CenterEagan, Minn.NY GiantsQuest Diagnostics Training FacilityEast Rutherford, N.J.NY JetsAtlantic Health Jets Training CenterFlorham Park, N.J.New England PatriotsGillette StadiumFoxborough, Mass.New Orleans SaintsNew Orleans Saints Training FacilityMetairie, La.Oakland RaidersNapa Valley MarriottNapa, Calif.Philadelphia EaglesNovaCare ComplexPhiladelphia, Pa.Pittsburgh SteelersSaint Vincent CollegeLatrobe, Pa.San Francisco 49ersSAP Performance FacilitySanta Clara, Calif.Seattle SeahawksVirginia Mason Athletic CenterRenton, Wash.Tampa Bay BuccaneersAdventHealth Training CenterTampa, Fla.Tennessee TitansSaint Thomas Sports ParkNashville, Tenn.Washington RedskinsBon Secours Washington Redskins Training CenterRichmond, Va. The dates for NFL training camp in 2019 vary depending on the team and its schedule. So the answer to the question of when training camp starts in 2019 is, well, “depends.”Per NFL rules, a team can’t start training camp with its full roster of veterans earlier than 15 days prior to its first scheduled preseason game. That means the Broncos and Falcons, who will play in this year’s NFL preseason opener — the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 1 — are able to start their training camps earlier than the rest of the league. Denver is taking advantage, asking its veterans and rookies to report July 17, exactly 15 days prior to the preseason opener.last_img read more

“Raúl was taken from me very soon, but he fulfilled his dream”

By on May 14, 2020

first_imgOne has to check the mobile a couple of times, at the beginning of the telephone conversation, to verify that he is chatting with someone 19 years old, born in 2000 for more signs. Despite being touring the season of his debut in Second B, Rubén de Tomás speaks with self-confidence, like a veteran. Or as if he had been in the elite of his older brother, Raúl de Tomás, for years. Naturally face this double role, for being the ‘Alter ego’ of the new signing of Espanyol and at the same time player of a San Sebastián de los Reyes that this Sunday it will be measured with the parakeets in the Copa del Rey. “Raul is wanting to play to show that he keeps scoring goals”, Says Rubén. Who knows if he can start this Sunday, before Sanse. A bet? There the family is over: “I hope we win, even if my brother plays“ “It seems surreal to me that everything has come together in the same days. The draw was random and Raul’s signing until recently was unclear, so how were we going to imagine it”, Admits Rubén, about the double coincidence, to which a cherry can be put if both have minutes in this Sanse-Espanyol. “Hopefully, it would be a dream come true, because we have never faced. The whole family would be very proud of us, ”he says. “We have never faced each other and hopefully I will now pass in the Cup, it is surreal” This last sentence is not trivial. In Rubén’s vocabulary he sends that attachment for his own, and it is not for less. His father, also Raúl de Tomás although known footballistically as ‘Beni’, He also played (in fact, he militated in the Sanse). And his children opted for football because “he educated us on the premise that we would do what we believed in.” This was also contributed by his mother, Mila, who followed the almost five years that, already as a footballer of the Real Madrid quarry, Raúl was interned at SEK school. “Raul is more introverted than normal to not give the image of what is not”center_img Perhaps the one who suffered most all that time was Ruben, then a child. “It was hard, although we stayed very close. Raúl is a mirror to look like in everything, a hero for me”, He says. And abounds: “They took it away from home very soon, but the consolation is that he could fulfill his dream of being a great footballer“ What they do share, beyond distance, are hobbies. “We have very similar tastes, they call us boxing and cars. For Christmas, Raúl gave me a simulator”, Explains Rubén, who describes his older brother as“ very humble, respectful and close.
