first_imgThe 1933 book ‘The Mighty Kick: Romance, History and Humor of Football’already pointed out that Wanderers “They were the first Englishmen to play in most major European cities, although their exceptional task was to visit small towns, where their name was barely known.” A milestone coming from the country where football was invented. They were so superior to most of their rivals that, in their beginnings, they established the norm of stopping if they scored nine goals; in case someone marked the tenth, he paid “drinks and evening entertainment.” And yet, they lost against him Spanish. And for a 5-0 that this Thursday would be worth the parakeets to work the miracle of accessing the round of 16 of the Europa League. A hopeful precedent of not being because those Wanderers were not of Wolverhamptonbut of Middlesex, just 200 kilometers away. Disciple of ‘Staples’, as Gibert was famous, Ricardo Zamora It was precisely one of the highlights in that double confrontation between the parrots and the Wanderers that was lived on May 23 and 24, 1925 in Sarrià. Espanyol was coming from a horrific year at the game level, but in the first of the commitments he was already imposed by a lonely 1-0, who scored three minutes from the end Martí Ventolrà, in one of his initial appearances with the parakeet club, and taking advantage of a goalkeeper’s rejection Roberts. At five in the afternoon of the next day, and with popular prices of one and two pesetas, exactly the same alignments met again. But this time the Espanyol had taken the registration to the Wanderers, until turning the equality of the first day into an absolute overflow. And in a blunt 5-0 that opened Ventolrà again, to the center of Crescent Olariaga, who gained weight with a hat-trick (one of them, on penalty) José Luis Zabala and that culminated Theodore Mauri, in a collective play with Pere Colls and the aforementioned Olariaga. A 5-0 from another era against a wandering team, the other Wanderers. Proof of this is what happened on April 17, 1914. 11 years before measuring with Espanyol, the Wanderers visited the Barcelona, in a series of four friendlies in 14 days. In the third of them, the whole team was short of troops because three of their players, who were students, did not receive permission from their teachers. So the Barça with three Espanyol players: Santiago Massana, Emili Sampere Y Pere Gibert. The latter was tried to sign after the game, but he replied like this: “No. in Espanyol I started and in Espanyol I will finish”. center_img Founded in 1905 in a town that was located northwest of London and that decades later it was already absorbed by the big city, it was an exhibition team, of an ‘amateur’ character in a time, not in vain, where professionalism was not abundant but the trade, experience and sport simply for love . last_img read more

first_img… returned fire at bandits before dying…killed suspected bandit identified as GDF rankBy Kristen MacklingamA brazen daylight robbery on Monday morning has left a businessman and a suspected bandit dead.Dead businessman: Deon StollDead is businessman Deon Stoll, called “Mow”, 44, of Charity village, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) and also of Barima Avenue, Bel Air, Georgetown. Also dead is suspected bandit, 18-year-old Olijah Chesney, a rank of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF). Two other persons, the businessman’s driver – 45-year-old Clayton Powley of Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown – and a security guard at El Dorado Trading were also shot.Reports are the businessman arrived at the El Dorado Trading establishment at approximately 10:20h in DaSilva Street, Newtown, Kitty, and as he was about to exit the car, two gunmen who arrived in a white car, opened fire on him and his driver.A review of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage showed that Stoll was sitting in the front passenger seat in a motor car (PPP 6727) driven by Powley, when the duo arrived at the front of the El Dorado Trading premises. A white Toyota motor car with tinted windows that had appeared to be trailing Stoll’s vehicle also stopped across the road from the business place seconds later. Stoll had earlier visited a business place on Sheriff Street, whence he collected an undisclosed sum of money.Injured driver Clayton PowleyTwo gunmen donning handkerchiefs to conceal their faces jumped out of the car and rushed towards Stoll’s car. One gunman opened the door at the driver’s side and a scuffle began between him and Powley, who soon exited the vehicle to better defend himself. Powley received a gunshot wound to his arm in the process while his assailant rushed back to the waiting white Toyota motor car.The other gunman, suspected to be the now dead GDF rank, rushed to the front-seat passenger door, and opened it before attempted to snatch something from Stoll. The businessman also appeared to have been putting up a fight from inside of the vehicle but was shot to his stomach. His shooter was unable to grab anything from the car. As he attempted to run away, the injured Stoll returned fire with his handgun. The CCTV footage showed that the gunman was shot twice by Stoll. Both times he stumbled as he escaped into the awaiting motor car which sped away.The CCTV footage showed Stoll clinging to his stomach as he fell on the ground. Security personnel attached to the El Dorado Trading, along with residents in the neighbourhood rushed to aid Stoll and Powley. They managed to transport the injured men to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) for emergency treatment. However, Stoll succumbed at the hospital. The security from El Dorado Trading was later transferred to a private city hospital, while Powley remains a patient at GPHC.When this newspaper arrived at the scene, resident said that heard gun shots being fired.Suspected banditMeanwhile, less than two hours after the shooting incident, the body of the suspected injured gunman was found at Tucville Squatting Area, Georgetown. He was clad in a navy blue jersey and white t-shit along with black pants. A purple shirt was seen lying next to his body. This is similar clothing to that of the gunman who had earlier shot Stoll.Dead suspected bandit: Olijah ChesneyAccording to the police, the dead man is a Guyana Defence Force (GDF) rank of “D” Field, Sophia, Greater Georgetown.“I was inside preparing lunch and I heard a noise like when a whistling thunder (explosive) goes off…But a big man came at my gate and called and asked me how come I didn’t know a body was laying right near my house and that is when I know. The lady whose house is opposite from where he was found was the one who discovered him but she is at work now and I can tell you, he was found dead, he was not alive,” a Tucville Squatting Area resident said.This newspaper was told that the suspected bandit’s accomplices may have dumped him there after he died as a result of the gunshot wounds.Police have since launched an investigation.last_img read more

first_imgThey were on the verge of more unwanted history after Marko Arnautovic gave West Ham a surprise lead at the Emirates Stadium.A defeat would have made this the first Arsenal side to lose their opening three fixtures for 54 years.But, while Emery’s team were dismal in defence, they possessed just enough attacking quality to stage a much-needed fightback.Nacho Monreal equalised before half-time and West Ham defender Issa Diop deflected influential substitute Alexandre Lacazette’s shot after the interval.Danny Welbeck came off the bench to wrap up the points in stoppage-time.Emery was relieved to see Arsenal finally get points on the board, but their inconsistent performance suggests the former Paris Saint Germain boss still has much to work on as he aims to restore his new club to the top four after last season’s sixth place finish.West Ham’s third successive defeat under new manager Manuel Pellegrini makes it the worst start by a Hammers boss since Avram Grant lost his opening four league games of the 2010-11 season.Pellegrini’s side sit bottom of the table and have only themselves to blame after wasting several chances to seize control.Arsenal were without Mesut Ozil, who was reported to be suffering from the flu after missing training on Friday, but the German midfielder’s absence couldn’t be blamed for his team’s erratic efforts at the back.There was an early warning for the creaky Arsenal defence as Hammers captain Arnautovic fired into the side-netting.Pellegrini’s men snatched the lead with a 25th minute goal that showed Emery hasn’t curled the defensive woes that ailed Arsenal in last years of the Wenger era.When Felipe Anderson took possession in midfield, he was able to advanced unchecked towards the Arsenal penalty area, where he fed a pass into Arnautovic.Aided by the lethargic reaction of Arsenal defenders Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Arnautovic had time and space to drill a low drive past Petr Cech from the edge of the area.– Revitalised –Jolted into action by that shock setback, Arsenal were level within five minutes.Hector Bellerin’s dashes forward from right-back were causing West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku all kinds of problems and the Spaniard was the catalyst for Arsenal’s equaliser an the climax of a fine 17-pass move.Breaking onto Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s pass down the right flank, Bellerin whipped over a cross that ran through to Monreal at the far post, where the left-back lashed home from close-range.Emery admitted this week that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been suffering from a confidence crisis after the Arsenal striker failed to score in the opening two games.Aubameyang was subdued again, the Gabon international threatening just once from long-range, and when Alexandre Lacazette came on to play alongside at half-time, the French forward immediately looked more dangerous than his team-mate.Benefitting from more astonishingly slack defending, Robert Snodgrass should have put West Ham ahead when he ran clear on goal, but the midfielder let Arsenal off the hook with a tame effort.Crucially, Arnautovic squandered two chances to restore West Ham’s lead with sloppy finishes early in the second half.Lacazette’s introduction had revitalised Arsenal and he drew a good stop from Lukasz Fabianski with a stinging strike.Arsenal’s pressure was rewarded in the 70th minute when Lacazette controlled well on his chest and swivelled for a shot that cannoned off Diop and into his own net.Arsenal finished well on top and Welbeck tapped in from Bellerin’s pass with the Hammers defence in tatters.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette controls before his shot led to Issa Diop’s decisive own goal© AFP Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 25 – Arsenal won for the first time under new manager Unai Emery as they came from behind to clinch a 3-1 victory against West Ham on Saturday.Emery’s side had lost the first two games of the post-Arsene Wenger era against Manchester City and Chelsea in the club’s worst start to a Premier League campaign since 1992.last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson The Kings, traditionally a strong team on the penalty kill, have been without key personnel in that area, particularly Eric Belanger and Aaron Miller, but also have been undone by too many penalties. In four of the 11 games during that streak, Kings’ opponents had at least eight power-play opportunities. “The number of power plays we allow is key,” said Craig Conroy, one of the Kings’ top defensive forwards. “We’ve been allowing 10, sometimes 12 power plays, and to be successful we have to limit (the opponents’) chances. That’s the main thing.” Phoenix had seven power plays Thursday, but one lasted for only two seconds. On the upswing: Things appear to be turning around for Alexander Frolov. Frolov had only one shot on goal Thursday – although it was a skillful spin move in front of the net that nearly led to a goal – but Murray was effusive with his praise of Frolov after the game. For most of the game, Frolov was strong on the puck and drove to the net, two areas in which the coaching staff has implored him to improve. Frolov also was on the ice for two of the Kings’ goals. “I thought Fro played his best game in about five or six weeks,” Murray said. In the dark: After Kings goals at home this season, a red spotlight has shined on opposing goalies. A story in Thursday’s Arizona Republic said that some Phoenix players took issue with the red-light treatment their goalie, Brian Boucher, received when the Kings beat the Coyotes 4-1 on Dec. 17. On Thursday, Boucher allowed three first-period goals, but the spotlight stayed off. Boucher was pulled after one period in favor of Curtis Joseph.

Phoenix entered the game in the league’s top 10 in power-play efficiency while the Kings ranked 25th in penalty-kill efficiency, but the Coyotes didn’t score a goal in 12 minutes, 2 seconds of power-play time. “And we came out ahead in the power-play, penalty-kill balance, which is always good,” coach Andy Murray said, in reference to Joe Corvo’s first-period power-play goal. center_img Luc Robitaille had the slump-breaking goals and Mathieu Garon turned in the shutout, but perhaps the most notable aspect of the Kings’ victory Thursday was what didn’t happen. For the first time in 11 games, the Kings did not allow a power-play goal, breaking a lengthy and confounding streak that saw them go from a solid penalty-killing team to one of the league’s worst. last_img read more
