20 days agoLeicester boss Rodgers fumes: Mane made most of it

first_imgLeicester boss Rodgers fumes: Mane made most of itby Paul Vegas20 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City boss Brendan Rodgers was furious with the way Sadio Mane won Liverpool’s matchwinning penalty on Saturday.Mane was brought down in stoppage time after a mix up between Albrighton and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before James Milner calmly slotted from 12 yards to give the hosts a huge victory that extends their winning run in the league to 17 games, dating back to March.Rodgers felt aggrieved by Chris Kavanagh’s decision to award the penalty kick, saying: “I think he has made the most of the contact.”Strikers now, they are clever. He has had a touch and gone over. If the referee didn’t give it I don’t think anyone would have said it was a clear and obvious error. “To concede a 95 minute penalty was difficult to take. I thought we deserved a point. You come to the European champions and you have to be resilient and deal with pressure and show your own qualities. I felt we did that.”I thought we could go on and win the game. We conceded a goal when we were in control. I thought it was a very soft penalty, not clear and obvious that is for sure but when the referee gives it it is hard for the VAR to go against it. “But I am very proud of the team and the personality we showed. To come here and be that competitive, it shows we are very much on the right path.”You have to have that [doggedness]. Any of the best teams always has a balance.”You come to a stadium that is one of the most difficult in Europe, in terms of momentum. We were able to turn the momentum around for us. “You have to have all types. Today we had to have that persistence and perseverance but when we had spells with the ball, we looked creative and we had a threat. “We looked like we could maybe get in front in the game. It wasn’t to be but I am proud of coming to here and bringing a team to compete at that level.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

I don’t react to criticism as I live in my own world: Dhawan

first_imgMohali: Shikhar Dhawan has the knack of bouncing back just when his detractors write him off and the Indian batsman says he manages to stay afloat in the toughest of times by shutting out the criticism that comes with lean patches. Without an international hundred for the past six months, Dhawan announced his comeback with a career-best 143 against Australia, albeit in a losing cause, in the fourth one-dayer here on Sunday. Asked how he reacts to criticism, the happy-go-lucky cricketer said living in his own bubble helps him keep it calm in the mind. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football together “First of all, I don’t read newspapers and I don’t take information which I don’t want to. So I don’t know what’s happening around me and I live in my own world. So, I decide in which direction my thoughts are going,” said the 33-year-old after the match. The best way to deal with pressure is to keep one’s composure, said Dhawan, who rarely gives away what’s going on in his mind. “I perform best when I am calm. There’s no point in cribbing or being sad,” said Dhawan. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open “When I feel hurt, I move on quickly. And I don’t really know what people are writing. I make sure that I am in a positive frame of mind and keep doing my process,” he added. Process is a word that almost every Indian cricketer refers to often and mostly without explaining the specifics. When Dhawan was asked to elaborate his idea of a process, he said: “When I talk to myself, I make sure that I cut down negative thoughts that can creep in. “I accept the reality and move on. I don’t resist something that’s happening. If it’s going good, then it’s good.” For the batsman, who has amassed more than five thousand runs in ODIs, there are three things that are paramount. “If I am doing all my skill work, taking care of my fitness and having the right mindset, then I just sit back and enjoy,” said Dhawan, who has been India’s key player in all the recent multi-nation tournaments. Dhawan offered a sympathetic view on his junior statemate Rishabh Pant, who had a terrible day behind the stumps. The youngster, who replaced Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the last two games, was shoddy with his glovework and also missed an easy stumping chance. “Like any other young bloke, you have to give him time too. I mean Dhoni bhai has played so many games and for how many years. You simply can’t compare. “Yes, had he effected the stumping, may be the game could have changed but then it slipped quickly out of our hands and for that, dew played a big role. That’s what it was,” he signed off.last_img read more

Yeddyurappa predicts defeat of senior Congress leaders in Karnataka in LS polls

first_imgBengaluru: State BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa Friday predicted the defeat of top leaders of the ruling Congress-JD(S) alliance, including former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, senior Congress leaders Veerappa Moily and Mallikarjun Kharge in the Lok Sabha polls. Signalling possible political instability in the state after the Lok Sabha poll results, the former Chief Minister said differences between Congress and JD(S) wouldincrease after the results are out on May 23. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “I have been saying this with confidence that we will win more than 300 seats across the country this time. InKarnataka, we will win at least 22 (out of 28) Lok Sabha seats. I’m saying this with confidence,” Yeddyurappa said. Addressing party MLAs, MPs and leaders meeting in the backdrop of bypolls to Chincholi and Kundgol assemblyseats on May 19, he said “the atmosphere is in our favour to an extent that Veerappa Moily has already lost against our candidate; in Kolar also K H Muniyappa will lose against our candidate Muniswamy.” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K “According to our calculations, Mallikarjun Kharge will lose against our candidate 100 per cent, and in Tumkur the situation is that you will not be surprised if Deve Gowda is defeated. This is what we are hearing, I’m not saying this forthe media or to satisfy you, this is based on information we have gathered,” he added. While JD(S) patriarch Gowda is pitted against BJP’s Basavaraj in Tumkur, Congress leader and former chief Minister Moily is fighting a tough battle against BJP’s Bachche Gowda in Chikkaballapur.

The outcome of the by-polls, along with the Lok Sabha results, is crucial for the ruling Congress-JD(S) alliance as it would have a bearing on the longevity of the coalition government, triggering the numbers game in the assembly. The by-poll to Chincholi was necessitated as Umesh Jadhavquit as Congress MLA and joined BJP to contest the Lok Sabha pollsfrom Gulbarga, while Kundgol seat fell vacant following thedeath of MLA and Minister C S Shivalli.last_img read more

Quick hits Midweek news notes for Ohio State football

DeVier Posey and Dan Herron Receiver DeVier Posey and running back Dan Herron, both seniors, were expected to return from five-game suspensions this week. However, both players’ suspensions will be extended at least one more game because of additional violations, as announced by OSU athletic director Gene Smith on Monday. First-year head coach Luke Fickell said that neither player is in danger of being dismissed from the team as of yet. “This is still something that’s undergoing and I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t have all of the information that they are going through probably just as of yet. Not that I’ve seen anything that we wouldn’t want a guy around right now.” Reinforcements arrive for the offensive line Unlike Posey and Herron, left tackle Mike Adams is back for OSU. Beyond that, Adams is listed as a starter for Buckeyes’ offensive line on Saturday against Nebraska. Adams’ arrival will be a welcome sight for his linemates, which allowed nine sacks against Michigan State last Saturday. Injury Updates Redshirt freshman receiver Verlon Reed, tied for second on the Buckeyes in receptions, has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, Fickell said. The banged-up receiving corps should be aided by the return of sophomore Corey “Philly” Brown this week, after he missed the last three games with a lower leg injury. “We’ll see how he runs around out there (Tuesday),” Fickell said. “Hopefully he’ll be all right.” Fickell said he is doubtful senior defensive lineman Nathan Williams will play this Saturday. Senior defensive end Solomon Thomas, who is returning from his five-game suspension this week, is not listed on the two-deep depth chart. However, Fickell said he expects Thomas to see playing time on Saturday, but did note that he is coming back from a broken leg in the Spring Game. Captaincy carousel slowing down Familiar faces are emerging among OSU’s weekly picks for game captains. Senior center Mike Brewster will make his third appearance as a Buckeyes’ game captain on Saturday against Nebraska. Linebacker Andrew Sweat and defensive back Tyler Moeller are each making their second stint as captains. Long leash for Braxton Miller Fickell said freshman quarterback Braxton Miller will not have a “short hook” if he struggles against the No. 14-ranked Nebraska on Saturday. “We don’t want a guy going in thinking that by any means,” Fickell said. “Braxton is the guy that right now is our starting quarterback, and you know, I would think hook-wise, we don’t want him to ever think that.” Miller was pulled from last Saturday’s game against Michigan State at the end of the third quarter and replaced by redshirt senior Joe Bauserman. Kickoff for the Buckeyes’ game at Nebraska is set for 8 p.m. and will be televised on ABC. read more
