Small victories important against Liverpool

They have had happiness against me, they have had very sad moments against me.“[Now] if they respect me as much as I respect them, we are going to have another one of those matches.”United enjoy a seven-point lead over Liverpool in the league standings and Mourinho believes that even though it’s not a battle for the title yet, it’s still a crucial game against a top side.“It’s for three points, not four,” he added. “Maybe if we were in a moment of the season where it was a duel between two teams it would mean more but it’s not the case.“At the same time, in these kinds of matches, every single moment plays a part.

Maradona offers to coach Argentina for free

first_img0Shares0000Diego Maradona, here with gilfriend Rocio Oliva, cheered on Argentina in Russia © AFP/File / Roman KruchininBUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Jul 3 – Diego Maradona wants to return to the position of Argentina coach and is willing to work for free, as Jorge Sampaoli faces pressure to resign following their World Cup travails.Speaking on his “Hand of God” television show, the 57-year-old Maradona, who coached Argentina for two years from 2008-10, said it was painful to see the current state of the national team. “I would return to leading the national team and I would do it for free, I wouldn’t ask for anything in return,” Maradona said on his programme, which runs on Venezuelan channel Telesur.Sampaoli is resisting intense pressure to resign following Argentina’s 4-3 defeat to France on Saturday during a World Cup campaign that was fraught with tension and disputes.The coach is believed to have lost the support of his players with some claims attributing team selection and tactics to captain and star Lionel Messi.Sampaoli, though, has another four years to run on his contract, meaning the Argentine Football Association (AFA) would have to pay a reported $15 million (12.9 million euros) to sack him.“Hopefully God will give me the strength to return to the bench,” said Maradona, whose own World Cup coaching campaign in 2010 ended in an ignominious 4-0 thumping by Germany in the quarter-finals in South Africa.“I’m 57, watching my country, which was beaten by a team that isn’t one of the best in the world — it really hursts to see everything that we’ve built destroyed so easily.”Maradona was a genius as a player, leading Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 and again to the final four years later.But his coaching career has been far less glamorous despite his stint in charge of the national team, in which he presided over a record-equalling 6-1 defeat to Bolivia.His last two jobs were in the United Arab Emirates, most recently failing to guide Fujairah to promotion from the Emirati second division last season.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Suspended Greek Soccer Restart Flares Anew With Riots (Photos)

first_imgATHENS – Two days after Greece’s suspended soccer league, troubled with violence and the specter of the owner of Thessaloniki-based PAOK brandishing a gun on the field, riots erupted again after league officials promised there would be calm.Supporters of the Athens-based Olympiakos soccer club clashed with riot police on March 27 outside a hotel in Piraeus where Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos, a known supporter of bitter rival PAOK, was scheduled to give a speech.Some 70 supporters gathered outside the Theoxenia hotel to protest against the government and Tsakalotos with a bitter divide between Athens and Thessaloniki, the country’s second-largest city, spilling over into more violence after it was promised there would be no more.Fans set fire to dumpsters, formed roadblocks and threw rocks, bricks, bottles and other objects at riot police who used tear gas to disperse them, said Kathimerini.A match between the two clubs earlier in the year was abandoned before it got started when the Olympiakos coach was struck in the face by a paper roll thrown from the stands where the PAOK supporters were seated.PAOK faced a heavy penalty for that but it was almost instantly removed, leading critics to say Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras’ government was favoring businessman Ivan Savvidis, owner of the Thessaloniki team who has effusively praised the Premier.Greek soccer fans clash with police at political event, Piraeus, March 28, 2018. (Photo by Eurokinissi/Thanasis Dimopoulos)Savvidis has been in hiding for more than two weeks after running on to his home field with a weapon in his holster to protest a waved-off goal. He’s facing arrest but Greek police haven’t been able to find one of the country’s most prominent and visible figures.The government lifted its suspension of the country’s soccer league after saying it received a commitment from clubs to reform rules aimed at combating violence, a promise that didn’t last 48 hours following a previous pattern of violence leading to the league stopping leading to the government reneging on promises to crack down leading to the league restarting leading to more violence.League organizers say games will restart  March 31 with additional midweek matches to be planned to compensate for the two-week suspension.The government announced the decision following talks with Greek clubs and a delegation from FIFA which visited Athens this month and had threatened to expel the country from international competition as it has done before with idle warnings that never were carried out, followed by more violence in Greek soccer followed by more alleged crackdowns.(Material from the Associated Press was used in this report)Greek soccer fans clash with police at political event, Piraeus, March 28, 2018.

Tim Hortons franchisee sues parent company for 4M over licence renewal

first_imgA Tim Hortons franchisee filed a $4-million lawsuit against the coffee-and-doughnut chain’s parent company after he says it refused to renew a licence for one of his stores in bad faith.“The actions of the defendant were callous, wanton and in total disregard of the rights of the plaintiff,” reads a lawsuit Mark Kuziora filed in the Ontario Superior Court against TDL Group Corp., a subsidiary of parent company Restaurant Brands International.Kuziora, an outspoken member of a dissident Tim Hortons’ franchisee group, owns two locations in Toronto. The lease for his store at 200 Bay Street expires Aug. 31.He says he was told in early April that he would be denied the renewal after months of negotiations.Kuziora belongs to the Great White North Franchisee Association, a group that claims to represent about half of Canada’s Tim Hortons franchisees and formed to voice the franchisees’ concerns.He is also the lead plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit filed by the GWNFA alleging RBI improperly used money from a national advertising fund, funnelling nearly $700 million earmarked for advertising, marketing and sales promotions to itself and TDL. RBI has denied the allegations, which have not been proven in court.The GWNFA and Tims have also recently sparred over a $700-million renovation plan to bring a more natural look and open-concept seating to Tim Hortons locations. GWNFA said the plans — which asked franchisees to kick in $450,000 each for renovations — were “ill-conceived.”Last spring, RBI started discussing future renovations of the Bay Street store with Kuziora, according to the lawsuit, and confirmed its established practice of “granting 100 per cent of term renewals for franchisees prepared to undertake renovations would be followed.”Kuziora committed to the renovations with the understanding the company would renew his lease, according to the suit filed last month.On March 27, Greg Hiltz, the area franchise lead for central Canada, informed Kuziora it would not happen, despite previously confirming the company had no plans to deviate from its standard practice.Tim Hortons Canada president Sami Siddiqui wrote in an email that the company stands by its decision.“The process of entering into a new franchisee licence is never automatic,” he said, adding it’s subject to a detailed business review, which was done and led to the decision.The lawsuit claims RBI decided to reject the renewal in bad faith based on Kuziora’s tense relationship with management.RBI and the GWNFA have been embroiled in a public battle since the group formed more than a year ago, with the parent company largely choosing to ignore the association aside from specific remarks and filing legal action against them.Tim Hortons president Alex Macedo recently admitted the company could have handled things better and said he’s spoken to GWNFA members on a cross-country tour of visits with franchisees aimed at repairing the relationship.Siddiqui said that Kuziora’s second location remains open and the company “will continue to help him be a successful operator.”The company declined to answer whether it had filed a statement of defence. None of the allegations have been proven in court.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX: QSR)last_img read more

The NFLs New Defensive Rules Probably Arent Going To Make A Difference

Every offseason, NFL officials make an instructional video that highlights new rules and gives players a warning about which existing ones will be called more tightly in the upcoming season. This year, officials say they’re going to key in on defensive holding and illegal contact, ensuring they’re called correctly.According to reporting by ESPN’s Jeffri Chadiha, officials became concerned that those particular penalties were not being called as often as they were a decade ago. (Conspiracy theorists, on the other hand, blamed the Seattle Seahawks’ dominant defensive performance against Peyton Manning’s record-setting Denver Broncos offense in the Super Bowl.) With an assist from the data of Pro-Football-Reference.com, we wondered if the official rationale holds up: Have illegal contact and defensive holding really been called less (on a per-pass basis) in recent seasons?In the case of illegal contact, yes. In 2004, Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian spent the offseason lobbying the NFL Competition Committee to more strictly enforce the illegal contact rule in the wake of his team’s 24-14 playoff defeat against the New England Patriots (a game in which Manning — then playing for Indianapolis — tossed four interceptions).As the chart below shows, referees began calling the penalty much more often the very next season, a 15-year high point. Since then, the penalty’s frequency has steadily receded.However, the pattern is less obvious with defensive holding, which also peaked around the middle of the decade but reversed its decline by 2010, and was near its 15-year high just last season. It doesn’t seem to be a penalty in need of greater emphasis.Then again, concerns about the wisdom of placing more restrictions on defenders in an already pass-happy league may be largely academic. At least in terms of illegal contact and defensive holding, there doesn’t seem to be any relationship between the frequency of either penalty being called and the NFL’s overall level of passing efficiency (as measured by Adjusted Net Yards Per Attempt).The last time the NFL cracked down on holding and contact by defenders, it didn’t make any noticeable dent in the rising trend of passing efficiency. Pass offenses have steadily become more and more efficient over the last decade and a half — but that’s part of a longterm trend of increased passing efficacy, not because of the rule changes inspired by Polian a decade ago. The same will likely be true for the changes made this offseason as well. read more

Opinion Three position groups to keep an eye on during the Ohio

OSU then-redshirt senior Corey Smith (84) and then-sophomore Cam Burrows (16) face off during the 2015 Spring Game on April 18 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe 2015 Ohio State football team came into the year with very few questions, riding a wave of consistency and experience. The same cannot be said for coach Urban Meyer’s 2016 squad heading into its annual spring game on Saturday.Most of the headlines surrounding the program this offseason centered around the nine players leaving early for the NFL draft, including defensive stalwart Joey Bosa and offensive playmakers Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas. Returning just six starters — three on offense, three on defense — from last year’s team that went 12-1, there are a lot of new faces at the top of the depth chart for the Buckeyes.Although most of these competitions won’t likely be settled until the final days of fall camp, here are a few position battles to watch for in the Scarlet and Gray scrimmage.Offensive lineBehind what might be considered the most intimidating front line in school history, “The Slobs” have a remodeled look in 2016. Redshirt senior Pat Elflein and redshirt junior Billy Price return up front for OSU. They’ll be looking to lead a group of unheralded, or perhaps even unheard of, Buckeyes who will try to fill sizable holes. Elflein is moving over to center from his previous stake at right guard, while Price is set to slide over from left guard to right.Junior Jamarco Jones is thought to be the replacement at left tackle for possible first-round pick Taylor Decker, who manned the position for the past three years. At 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds, the former U.S. Army All-American has not yet had a chance in the spotlight despite being ranked as the No. 4 offensive tackle by 247Sports in his class.For the last two spots on the line, true sophomore Isaiah Prince, true freshman Michael Jordan, redshirt sophomore Demetrius Knox and redshirt junior Evan Lisle are all aiming to start on first-year offensive line coach Greg Studrawa’s front line.Prince was the first member of the 2015 recruiting class to lose his black stripe, granting him rights to practice with the team. Prince, Jordan, Knox and Lisle all were consensus top 100 players in their respective recruiting classes.Although it’s not a real game, the live action that the young offensive linemen will see should be valuable for Meyer to assess what the best five-man unit will be in the regular season. LinebackerOnly one member of Luke Fickell’s starting linebacker corps returns for the 2016 season. With two-year starters Darron Lee and Joshua Perry both gone, junior Raekwon McMillan — already named a team captain — mans the middle for the Buckeyes this season, while young, unproven talent is competing for the two outside linebacker positions.Two former Ohio Mr. Football candidates — Dante Booker, who won it in 2014, and Justin Hilliard, a finalist the year after — were highly touted recruits who haven’t had a chance yet to shine. Expect the two to consistently earn playing time all year, as Meyer has shown he likes to rotate a lot of bodies into the mix at linebacker. Booker, who had 22 tackles last season as a two-deep linebacker, is an early favorite over Hilliard to earn a starting job.The other linebacker who is expected to receive plenty of first-team reps is redshirt junior Chris Worley. Along with Booker in 2015, Worley played on the second group and recorded 17 tackles last season.Wide receiverLast season, Thomas was without a doubt the most talented pass catcher on the field. Now with Thomas, Jalin Marshall and Braxton Miller leaving empty spots, Meyer’s offense is desperately looking for someone from the inexperienced group of receivers to emerge.Returning from a broken leg last season against Indiana is redshirt senior wide receiver Corey Smith. However, as he only collected 25 receptions and 317 receiving yards in a year and a half with OSU, it’s worrisome for Meyer to count on Smith for big numbers this season.Also recovering from a season-ending leg injury, this one suffered in fall camp, Noah Brown has a much-anticipated 2016 campaign ahead considering all reports out of the 2015 camp were positive from Meyer and his team. At 6-foot-2, the 222-pound wideout has great size and control in the air. The redshirt sophomore is known as a physical receiver, which has been a staple in Meyer’s spread offense. If healthy enough to go, Brown will be a heavy favorite for a starting receiver position.Dontre Wilson is another member of the unit who could be looked to for big production in 2016. Yeah, remember this guy? Playing a lot his freshman campaign in 2013, the 5-foot-10 speedster from Texas enters his senior season with his career thus far been marred by injuries. Only at 180 pounds when he arrived on campus and now listed at 195 pounds, Wilson has one season to live up to the hype OSU fans had for him when he first entered the OSU facilities.Finally, if you’re going to watch one skill position player in Saturday’s game, look out for Austin Mack. The early-enrollee freshman has very impressive athleticism and knowledge of the position for a player who is just 18 years old. Mack is a U.S. Army All-American who showcased his skills impressively against future OSU talent in July at OSU’s Friday Night Lights high school showcase event. Don’t be surprised if Mack emerges as the standout in this year’s spring game. read more
