Spurs’ AVB in Chelsea revenge mission

Posted on

first_imgVillas-Boas was bitter about his exit in March and to make matters worse, his former assistant Roberto Di Matteo oversaw a revival that delivered the FA Cup and the Champions League.Chelsea’s European triumph ensured their return to the competition despite finishing in sixth place in the Premier League, and consigned fourth-placed Spurs to the Europa League.And Villas-Boas claims that will prove the more significant motivation for his team, who face the unbeaten league leaders on the back of a run of four straight wins, than any personal thoughts of revenge.“In the end there is one thing which has been to a certain extent blown out of proportion in some ways – this is certainly not a personal matter,” Villas-Boas said.“I feel this is much more about Tottenham in the sense that Chelsea are the team who took this club out of the Champions League, and who prevented this team from playing in FA Cup final last year.“So in the end we certainly have ingredients for it to be a spectacular match.“But this game is not going to decide the future of both teams in the Premier League, after this game there will be 30 more games to play, and both teams will have to have decisive matches in front of them.“It counts as three points. It doesn’t win us a trophy.”Villas-Boas stood by Terry when allegations were first made against the defender last October, but he admits the centre back’s absence will boost his side’s chances of a win.“Obviously you have to make sure to take into account that this is an extremely good player, an experienced player and Chelsea’s captain,” Villas-Boas said.“A player of this dimension is always surely missed. But the other centre-backs are tremendously good too.“But obviously he is a player of massive experience, and an emotional leader that can push the others through.“He’s certainly someone who will be missed by Chelsea but the options they have are extremely good.”Villas-Boas is expected to stick with England’s Jermain Defoe as his side’s lone striker, with Emmanuel Adebayor remaining on the bench, but faces a tough decision between Brad Friedel and Hugo Lloris for the keeper spot.But Spurs will once again be without midfielder Scott Parker and left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto.Di Matteo, meanwhile, will call-up Gary Cahill to deputise for Terry alongside David Luiz with Ashley Cole set to start 48 hours after being fined £90,000 for his abusive tweet directed at the FA following criticism of his role in the wake of Terry’s clash with Ferdinand.Fernando Torres will again lead the Chelsea attack after revealing last week the depth of his personal frustration last season when he struggled to get into the Blues starting line-up ahead of the now departed Didier Drogba.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, October 19 – Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas insists his players will be the only ones on a revenge mission when his former club Chelsea visit White Hart Lane in Saturday’s London derby.With Chelsea captain John Terry suspended after deciding not to appeal the four-match ban imposed for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, the focus will be fixed firmly on Villas-Boas as he confronts the Blues for the first time since his dismissal after just nine months in the job.last_img read more

Ulloa delivers Leicester, Chelsea down Saints

Posted on

first_img0Shares0000Leicester City’s striker Leonardo Ulloa celebrates scoring a goal during the English Premier League football match between Leicester City and Norwich City in Leicester, England on February 27, 2016…LONDON, February 27 – Substitute Leonardo Ulloa scored an 89th-minute winner as Leicester City breathed fresh life into their improbable Premier League title challenge by edging Norwich City 1-0 on Saturday.Two weeks on from a last-gasp 2-1 defeat at Arsenal, Leicester were on course to drop points again until Ulloa tapped in at the death to send Claudio Ranieri’s side five points clear at the summit. The Argentine’s goal, only his third of the season, puts the pressure on Leicester’s closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, who host Swansea City and visit Manchester United respectively on Sunday.Norwich’s approach at the King Power Stadium gave Leicester an indication of the puzzles likely to await them over the final 11 matches of a dizzying campaign.Alex Neil’s visitors lined up with a back three and sat back, forcing Leicester, who had previously averaged just 44 percent of possession in their home league games, to take the initiative.Marc Albrighton went close for Leicester with a free-kick from wide on the left, but the best chance of the first half fell to Norwich’s Cameron Jerome, who headed inches wide from Robbie Brady’s corner.Encouraged by Riyad Mahrez, Leicester took hold of the game in the second period, with visiting goalkeeper John Ruddy saving from Jamie Vardy and Albrighton.Nathan Redmond went close to snatching victory for Norwich when he flashed a shot wide, but the hosts had the last word when Ulloa ghosted in at the back post to apply the finishing touch to Albrighton’s right-wing cross.Meanwhile, Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea extended their unbeaten run to 11 league games in a 2-1 comeback victory at in-form Southampton, who had won five and drawn one of their previous six league matches.Southampton took a 42nd-minute lead when Shane Long intercepted Baba Rahman’s header and ran into the box before coolly dinking a shot past Thibaut Courtois.Home goalkeeper Fraser Forster established a new Southampton top-flight record of 708 minutes without conceding a goal, but he was finally beaten in the 75th minute when he allowed Cesc Fabregas’s cross to beat him.Branislav Ivanovic headed in an 89th-minute winner from Willian’s corner, lifting Chelsea — who lost Pedro Rodriguez to an early thigh injury — one place to 11th.The result prevented Southampton from keeping pace with West Ham United, who had moved into fifth place earlier in the day by beating second-bottom Sunderland 1-0.Michail Antonio settled the game in the 30th by scuttling infield from the right and firing home left-footed, as Slaven Bilic’s men supplanted Manchester United in the Europa League berth.Marko Arnautovic scored twice as Stoke City won 2-1 at home to bottom club Aston Villa, who replied through Leandro Bacuna, while Watford and Bournemouth drew 0-0 at Vicarage Road.In the day’s late game, West Bromwich Albion host Crystal Palace.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Charlton snap up former West Ham goalkeeper

Posted on

first_img1 Stephen Henderson in action for West Ham Charlton have completed the signing of goalkeeper Stephen Henderson on a free transfer.The 26-year-old was released from his West Ham contract last week after making just two League Cup appearances in two years at Upton Park.Now he has been snapped up by the Addicks, who had been searching for a new stopper after losing last season’s number one Ben Hamer to Leicester.A former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, Henderson previously played for Portsmouth and Bristol City before signing for the Hammers in 2012.Henderson is Charlton’s eighth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Yoni Buyens, Igor Vetokele, Franck Moussa, Andre Bikey-Amougou, Tal Ben Haim, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and George Tucudean.He told the club’s official website: “I’m very excited and can’t wait to get started. I’m delighted to get it done. It was a pretty sharp move and I’m very happy to be here.”last_img read more

It’s a fact: Four reasons why Chelsea WILL beat Arsenal this weekend

Posted on

first_imgChelsea host Arsenal this weekend in a big London derby , and you can listen to live and exclusive national radio commentary only on talkSPORT on Sunday afternoon.But, if you’re a Gooner, you might want to listen with your hands over your ears (is that even possible? – Ed) because, as our friends from kickoff.co.uk have discovered, there are not too many reasons to be a cheerful if you’re a red…Chelsea (almost) always score firstOnly Swansea have managed to take the lead among the last 12 Premier League teams to visit Stamford Bridge. And, perhaps even more depressing than that for Arsenal fans, the last four Premier League teams who did get themselves in front at Stamford Bridge all ended up losing!Take a look at which team scored the first goal in the last 12 league games at Stamford Bridge, green being the home team, red the away side, with the arrow pointing in the direction of the team that emerged as winners… Chelsea thumped Arsenal 6-0 at Stamford Bridge last season 3 3 Chelsea (almost always) win they score firstJose Mourinho’s side went ahead in games on 24 occasions last term, and lost only twice! Of the other 22 matches, they won 20 and drew two. The only teams to buck that trend and come from behind to beat the Blues were Stoke and Sunderland. More recently, Chelsea have taken all three points from 12 of the last 14 home Premier League games in which they scored the first goal.Chelsea always score first against ArsenalAt least, they have done on the last six times these two teams have met in west London. The last time the Gunners drew first blood on their enemy’s territory was way back in March 2008. And they won’t want to be reminded that the man who created the opening goal that day (for Bacary Sagna) was none other than… Cesc Fabregas! Not that it ended up making any difference as a Didier Drogba brace in the final 17 minutes saw Chelsea run out 2-1 winners. 3 Stop Costa, or it’s curtains…It would be fair to say the Spaniard has hit the Premier League ground running. Running like Usain Bolt, in fact! He’s already scored eight top-flight goals, two of them being the first in the match. Last season, he smashed in 35 goals for Atletico Madrid in La Liga and the Champions League, ten of them the opening salvo. And guess what happened on all 12 of those occasions when he netted the first goal in a game? Come on, you don’t really need us to tell you, do you…?

Is the Elvis legend losing its fascination?

Posted on

first_imgIt is easy to forget through the fog of history what an enormous impact Elvis had on society. He was not just a singer; he was a cultural force, every pelvic thrust a blow to a country that wanted its pop stars more subdued. Elvis was a heathen. “Hell, these were timid times, an’ here’s this white kid up there shakin’ his ass,” Lewis Grizzard, the late humorist, once said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “An’ I remember my grandfather sayin’ that this was the devil’s music, an’ anybody who listened to it was surely gonna go straight t’ hell, which, y’know, did concern me some. Still, I liked it, an’ I figured I’d just take my chances.” Then there is the old story of a conversation between Elvis and fellow rock ‘n’ roller Jerry Lee Lewis. “Why boy, you are the devil!” Lewis said when Elvis asked if they were playing thePity the pioneers. “devil’s music.” Then the devil moved from Hades to Vegas, trading his horns for jumpsuits. The unimaginable happened: Kitsch conquered cool. And those black velvet paintings seemed more substantial than the real thing. If it is easy to forget his significance, however, it is just as important to remember it, especially this year, the 50th anniversary of “Heartbreak Hotel.” The kitsch was temporary. The cool will last forever. Like all of Elvis’ early hits, “Heartbreak Hotel” combined the two key ingredients of rock ‘n’ roll: blues and country. If country gave the music its snap, blues gave it the churning power that makes it so explosive. Without either, rock ‘n’ roll would not be rock ‘n’ roll. “He created something new by definition, because it hadn’t been popular before,” said Howard Kramer, the curatorial director of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. “There is no question about that. He wasn’t the first guy to play music like that. He was just the most popular.” If some historians regard Elvis as a breathtaking original, other music lovers see him as a shameless copycat, a singer who co-opted the blues to forge a success denied black artists who came before. Bobby “Blue” Bland, the legendary blues singer, does not see Elvis as a racist, a man who was more imitator than innovator. “People have that outlook because of his color,” Bland, 76, said in a telephone interview from his home in Memphis. “Sure, there was a bigger opening for him than for anybody black. But whatever he did, he did it very well, like Ray Charles when Ray did country. Music is music.” When Elvis climbed the charts first regionally, then nationally Bland detected a “new kid on the block.” The songs were daring but familiar, as if those musical notes had been there all along, waiting for someone to pluck them out of the air. That someone was Elvis, and his success helped every musician who followed, black and white. “If people want to be downright hateful about it, saying he was a copycat, well, that’s their business,” Bland said. “But Elvis did a great thing. “He opened the doors for a lot of people, a lot of black artists, including me. He helped me get the story out about the blues.” If Elvis integrated the jukebox, did he help do the same for society? Was he a civil rights figure? Did the heathen perform a heavenly deed, whether or not it was intentional? “Look, it was as if the country had one street, and you had whites walking on one side, and you had blacks walking on the other side,” Bland said. “Well, after Elvis came along, people started walking on the same side of the street. They started to gel.” Elvis influenced every rock ‘n’ roller who followed, from the Beatles to El Vez, the Mexican American singer from East Los Angeles. “El Vez explains that he grew up thinking that Elvis was Mexicano because he looked like El Vez’s uncles in terms of his dark skin and black pompadour,” said Robert Huesca, a communications professor at Trinity University. “He grew up considering Elvis one of his own in a culture that rarely venerates minorities at the level experienced by Elvis. So I think he must have been moved in a remarkable way by what he considered a minority performer who had captured the hearts and devotion of mass American audiences. That’s a pretty powerful appeal.” And that appeal, broadened to kids of all colors and backgrounds, helped change society. “Without Elvis or someone like Elvis the civil rights movement would have been different,” said Harry Haines, a Trinity University communications professor known as the “expert on all things Elvis.” “He taught white kids how to move their bodies. And when white kids started moving their bodies to the same kind of sound black kids were moving their bodies to, it was very important.” If Elvis helped integrate American society, Kramer said, he was just part of a process that began long before he galvanized the nation with his singing and dancing: In the 1940s, folk singers began advocating civil rights for minorities, spearheaded by legendary artists such as Woody Guthrie. In 1948, President Harry Truman began to integrate the armed forces. In 1954 the year Elvis recorded what some historians regard as the first rock ‘n’ roll song, “That’s All Right” the Supreme Court ruled that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal” in Brown vs. Board of Education. “Elvis didn’t set out to help integrate society,” Haines said. “All he wanted to be was a movie star, and all he wanted to do was meet beautiful women. But his music moved white kids and black kids, and it broke down racial barriers.” And that is why Elvis, Vegas or no Vegas, will never become inconsequential.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

And there’s an element of kitsch to it, and not cool kitsch. “Younger music fans have more of an affinity with Frank Sinatra,” Alejandro continued. “Sinatra always stayed cool.

Roll up his sleeves

first_img– Nancy Cook Northridge LAPD flex schedule In the 14 years that I’ve lived in L.A.’s northeast region, I’ve had to call the LAPD numerous times- regarding loud parties or other nonemergencies. The response time of the officers was consistently two hours after the call. So I’m amazed to read in the Daily News that the LAPD response time to nonemergencies is, at the most, 11.5 minutes. Am I the only one who thinks this is a bogus figure? I’ve known for a long time that the three-day work week for officers results in slow response time. Why not poll readers of the Daily News to get the response time for their nonemergency calls to LAPD? We deserve better and we need correct figures from the residents to get better police service. – Sandra Malone Los Angeles Is this fair? “City chiefs to get 5% bump in pay” appeared on Page 5 in the Daily News. It should have been on Page 1 so that more readers would see the rip-off we are getting from all these so-called leaders of ours. The numbers are staggering. The mayor will be getting more than $200,000 and the City Council more than $171,000. Are these fair wages for these jobs? It’s got to stop somewhere. We have to revert back to when the voters voted for raises. And vote no on Measure R and bring some sanity to Los Angeles. – Johnny Rotella Van Nuys Homeless scattered Re “Skid Row program scatters homeless” (Oct. 31): My, my, the officials are acknowledging that they need to reassess their approach to the homeless. Where did they think they were going to go when chased away from downtown? The Ritz Carlton? No, they are headed to the San Fernando Valley. Can’t blame them … They will be moving up. Estella Lopez, executive director of the Central City East Association, has been trying to get officials to deal with the homeless issue for years, (and) believes the city began the program without adequate preparation. What are the fats cats doing to solve the homeless situation? Nothing! Besides being the highest-paid City Council in the nation, they will be getting a 5 percent cost-of-living increase and then they want another term. Even more reason to vote no on Measure R. – Marianne Castro Lawson Granada Hills Flourishing economy According to the Oct. 30 Business Week magazine, the average annual CEO pay for S&P 500 companies is $10.5 million. That is 369 times the average worker pay of $28,310. Is it any wonder most of us are not experiencing too much happiness over the flourishing U.S. economy? – Don Evans Canoga Park Welfare for the rich I am disgusted with the Daily News for backing Measure H, a boondoggle bond that would force thousands of homeowners on limited incomes to subsidize workers who make $104,000 a year. This is really welfare for the rich. If they can’t figure out how to buy a house with this huge yearly income, maybe they’ll just have to forget instant gratification and learn how to use a bank account to save for their dream. – Michael Guetzow Woodland Hills All the bond measures Until proper laws are passed to assure the money goes where intended, no one should vote for any of the bond bills. Remember all the billions of dollars in bonds passed for education, fighting crime, fixing roads, etc.? The real crime is, those in charge have not been held responsible. They, at the very least, should be thrown out of office. But the people seem too concerned with Tom Cruise, Madonna, Brad (Pitt) and sports to take the time to e-mail, write, call and vote. We pretty well get what we ask for – or is that, do not bother to ask for? – Warren Ettleman Burbank Another wondering Re “Cell-phone driving” (Your Opinions, Oct. 31): I, too, have wondered why it takes until 2008 for the bill regarding cell phone usage while driving a car to become effective. Makes no sense to have to wait this long for a bill to become a law. I have also been wondering for years why our ballots are also available written in multiple languages. You need to be an American citizen to vote, and doesn’t one need to be able to read English to become an American citizen? It seems our ballots are not available in European languages, only in Asian and South American languages. Can anyone answer this? – Harriet Jones Northridge Propositioning us The “propositions” on Tuesday’s ballot amount to nothing more than another screwing of the California taxpayer … consider this: 1A keeps the legislators from using gas tax money for other purposes … huh? So, now we have to legislate honesty? 1B through 1E to “rebuild” California? With no new taxes? What, are you math-impaired? Who will repay the almost $90 billion these gems will cost over 30 years and how will they do it without new taxes? The remainder constitute nothing more than one group of people taking money from a second group and giving it to a third group. If you want to keep some of your own money to live on in the next 30 years you’ll join me in voting “no” on all of it. – William Campbell Valencia CSUN enrollment The article “Record enrollment at CSUN” talks about CSUN’s various recruitment methods. What stunned me was the high number of enrolled students at CSUN and how it’s expected to go up each year. It’s nice to know that our school is becoming popular and a top choice for students, whether our recruitment numbers are going up, because of students right out of high school, or community college transfers, the results are fantastic. All that matters is how we are getting those numbers up and making CSUN a top school within the Cal State system. A good reputation for our school is good for all. – Brenda Valadez Northridge Proposition H I hope people will cast a no vote for this proposition. It is unfair that property taxpayers, who are already seeing their property tax bills climb higher and higher every year, bear the burden of affordable housing.
