Chelsea lining up new Rooney bid

first_imgJose Mourinho and Chelsea will test Manchester United’s determination to retain striker Wayne Rooney before the transfer window closes because “nobody forbids you to try”. “At a certain point I agree with what Alan was saying, that the transfer window goes too far, the transfer window goes to the third, fourth fixture of the season, which I also agree that is too much,” Mourinho said. “But at the same time it gives everybody a chance to be in the market while we are winning or losing points. “We have conditions to try to improve our team by bringing in one more player and we are going to try that till the end.” Villa head to Chelsea on Wednesday earlier than planned owing to the Blues’ UEFA Super Cup commitments at the end of the month, buoyed by their 3-1 win at Arsenal. And Mourinho is wary of Villa following their success at the Emirates Stadium. “It’s not such a big surprise because Aston Villa can do that to any one of us,” Mourinho said. “Last season they had more points away from home than at Villa Park. “They are a team with qualities to play away, to play the counter-attack game they played at the Emirates. “They are a good team. It’s not such a big drama, they can beat any one of the contenders.” If Mourinho is feeling mischievous, the new bid could come prior to next Monday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Old Trafford. “You try, because nobody forbids you to try,” said the self-proclaimed Special One, who was speaking ahead of the clash with Aston Villa. “When you think that you’d like to have one player and the market is open and the official bids are not forbidden, official bids are always accepted in an ethical way. “Of course, the player’s owners they can do exactly what we did in relation to David Luiz and Barcelona.” Mourinho has expressed satisfaction with his squad, which contains three strikers in Fernando Torres, Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba, but also has a fallback option if a move for Rooney is blocked again. Mourinho, who has been linked with a move for Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto’o, who played under him at Inter Milan, added: “We have plans B and C. Don’t ask me names because it’s difficult to speak about players from other clubs.” Despite hoping to remain active in it, Mourinho sympathises with those managers calling for the transfer window to close before the Premier League season starts. The subject again arose on Monday when Arsenal’s bid for Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye on the day of the Magpies’ match at Manchester City provoked Alan Pardew’s ire. Chelsea have already seen two bids for the United striker rejected, but manager Mourinho is not yet prepared to cut his losses and will continue his pursuit until the September 2 deadline. Mourinho was asked the motivation behind a probable new bid, despite United insisting Rooney is not for sale, and the Portuguese said David Moyes could always reject any fresh approach, just as Chelsea had from Barcelona for David Luiz.

Peter-Owen Hayward looks to build upon successful freshman season with Syracuse club ice hockey

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Before Peter-Owen Hayward ever took the ice with Syracuse’s club hockey team, where he scored four game-winning goals during his freshman season, time ticked away as he grappled with his college decision.Several offers and recruitment visits later, Hayward chose Syracuse, a school that does not have an NCAA Division I men’s hockey team.In just his first season of collegiate club hockey, Hayward led the country in goals with 38, three more than the next-highest player. The now-sophomore finished last season with 64 points in just 35 games. Now, Hayward and Syracuse (5-2) are trying to build on his freshman campaign.“Everyone could see he was a good player right when he came in,” Trip Franzese, Hayward’s linemate, said. “But then what he did on the ice was unexpected. I don’t think anyone expected him to do that.”After his high school graduation, Hayward didn’t enroll in college. He decided to play a season of post-graduate junior hockey for the Boston Jr. Bruins in the United States Premier Hockey League, hoping to receive Division I offers. The best he got was Division III looks. A few were solid offers, Hayward said, but none were what Hayward was looking for academically.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHayward also received offers from schools with D-I American Collegiate Hockey Association teams, like Syracuse. Ideally, he wanted a school with a strong business program, which Syracuse was able to offer with the Martin J. Whitman School of Management.Now, Hayward is a marketing and advertising dual major in Whitman and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.As a member of the Orange, Hayward’s transition came with ease. He immediately became a leader in the locker room, giving SU a much-needed spark during games, Franzese said. Paired with his athleticism and natural scoring ability, SU head coach Nicholas Pierandri said, Hayward became a top recruit for the club hockey team.“He established a new level of player at our university,” Pierandri said.Before the start of his sophomore year, Hayward’s teammates elected him to be an assistant captain, a title, Pierandri said, not commonly held by two-year players. Franzese added that Hayward leads by example, is good at getting things done and getting his teammates fired up.“He’s a marquee player,” Pierandri said, “a good voice for our team, and a leader in the way he plays.”SU enters this season having won 20-plus games four consecutive times and making three appearances in the ACHA national tournament. While Hayward looks to defend the scoring title, it’s not a thought that often enters his mind.“If you go out and try to lead the country in goals you’re never going to do it,” Hayward said. “When I was playing for the Junior Bruins, people had lots of high expectations for me coming out of high school.“… Once I let (the pressure) go and started playing more freely, I played better.” Comments Published on October 25, 2017 at 12:33 am Contact Peyton: pesmith@syr.edulast_img read more

Shohei Ohtani back on track to return to Angels rotation

first_imgNEW YORK — The interruption in Shohei Ohtani’s pitching schedule may end up amounting to only a few days.Ohtani threw a light bullpen session Saturday, which could put him back on schedule to start Wednesday in Detroit. He had been expected to start Sunday in New York, but the Angels scratched him, citing “workload management.”Manager Mike Scioscia was noncommittal Saturday afternoon about the plans for Ohtani, beyond saying he had to get through a light bullpen session and a more intense one.“We are going to wait for these things to happen,” Scioscia said. “We do anticipate, if everything goes well, that he’s pitching sometime in Detroit.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Angels open a four-game series Monday in Detroit.Ohtani’s previous schedule had him throwing the light bullpen four days before a start, and the heavier one two days prior.By scratching Ohtani’s start Sunday, the Angels denied fans the chance to see Ohtani and Masahiro Tanaka share the mound. Instead, they are likely to see Ohtani hit against Tanaka.Ohtani had said Thursday he figured there would plenty of chances down the road to pitch against each other.Tanaka, speaking Saturday, didn’t seem to be too disappointed that their meeting has changed.center_img “It was becoming a big thing, facing each other,” Tanaka said through his interpreter. “That going away maybe spoils it for the fans a little bit, but I’ll probably face him as a batter, so I just have to go out there and do my thing and try to get him out.”Scioscia would not commit to Ohtani hitting Sunday. The Angels have made it clear Ohtani will not be able to start at DH the day before or after he pitches, but he’s started almost every other day he’s been available. The only exceptions were when the Angels were facing left-handed pitchers. Tanaka is a right-hander.ALSOScioscia said he is not ready to switch to a lineup with Ohtani batting ahead of Albert Pujols. Coming into Saturday’s game, Ohtani had a .967 OPS and Pujols had a .692 mark. “You always consider all kind of lineups, but right now I think certainly Mike (Trout), Justin (Upton) and Albert are all swinging it well,” Scioscia said. “They will definitely create situations for Shohei.” …Michael Hermosillo had two hits in six at-bats in the four games he played during his first big league stint, which ended when he was optioned to make room for Jaime Barría. “It’s good for him to come up here and see the beast, see what major league pitching is, get into a major league game,” Scioscia said. “It helps you go down and bring some confidence and hopefully continue to grow. If he reaches his potential, he’s going to be a very good major league outfielder.”UP NEXTAngels (Garrett Richards, 4-3, 3.31) at Yankees (Masahiro Tanaka, 5-2, 4.95), 10 a.m., Fox Sports West, KLAA (830 AM).last_img read more

Neymar AWOL from Paris Saint-Germain training; club threatens punishment

first_img“The club regrets this situation and will therefore take appropriate action.”Neymar missed the Copa America with an ankle injury but was expected to be fit for the start of the new season. He was in attendance at the Maracana as Brazil overcame Peru, 3-1, in the final Sunday.Failing to report for training casts further doubt on Neymar’s future in the French capital, with Real Madrid also having long had a reported interest in him. Paris Saint-Germain says it will take disciplinary measures against Neymar after he failed to report for training Monday.The Ligue 1 champion welcomed back players for the start of preseason ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, but Neymar was a notable no-show. The Brazilian star, 27, has been linked with a return to former club Barcelona and now faces a sanction from PSG.”On Monday July 8, Neymar was due to return to pre-season activities with the Paris Saint-Germain senior squad,” a club statement said.”Paris Saint-Germain notes that Neymar Jr was not in attendance at the agreed time and place. This was without the club’s prior authorization.last_img read more

Major League Baseball Teams Once Scouted Donald Trump

first_imgBaseball is back and the president says he will soon be throwing out the first pitch for the New York Yankees. And, the President should do a much better job from the mound than Dr. Anthony Fauci who threw out the first pitch (sort of) at last night’s Yankee’s game. Trump actually played the game.Last night, the Yankees topped the defending World Series Champion Nationals 4-1 in D.C. But, Before the game, Doctor Anthony Fauci threw the ceremonial first pitch and it went wide left and bounced then he went for the fist bump with the catcher who was winded after chasing the ball. Fauci has been the face of leading America’s efforts to combat the coronavirus. In the nightcap, Dodgers win 8-1 win at home over the rival Giants. Marlins play Philly tonight. President Donald Trump said Thursday he’s agreed to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a New York Yankees game on August 15, marking the first time he’ll take part in the longstanding presidential tradition.In 2010 he told MTV that “I was captain of the high school baseball team and I was supposed to be a professional baseball player.” He went on to say, “Fortunately, I decided to go into real estate instead. I played first base and I also played catcher. I was a good hitter. I just had a good time.”A former teacher of the future leader of the free world told Rolling Stone that Trump was once scouted by the Philadelphia Phillies and reportedly the Boston Red Sox took a peek at Trump’s prowess on the diamond as well.Thankfully Trump was too smart to play baseball professionally and instead became President of the United States.last_img read more
