Tardelli: Doyle still part of plans

first_imgAssistant manager Marco Tardelli has assured striker Kevin Doyle he still has a future with Ireland despite being dropped from the squad by text. Doyle spoke of his disappointment at learning of Trapattoni’s decision when he came off the pitch after scoring the winner in Wolves’ 2-1 npower Championship victory over Bristol City on Saturday in an interview with his club’s official website, www.wolves.co.uk. The 29-year-old said: “I was very disappointed to come in after the game to a text message saying I wasn’t to travel to Ireland to join up with the squad. “I have been in every squad when I have been fit for seven and a half years, so it was disappointing. I thought I might get a phone call, but it wasn’t to be and I haven’t spoken to the manager about it. “Maybe he will speak to me about it in the future and for now, I just have to get on with it. I have been in squads for seven and a half years and certainly never took it for granted and have always found it a great pleasure and privilege to play for my country. “I feel I have always given 100 per cent in terms of showing the right attitude and dedication with Ireland in every training session and every match, as I do here at Wolves. “I will carry on doing that and hopefully get another opportunity to do that again in the future. It was disappointing to get the text message telling me not to travel, particularly after such a good game with Wolves, and you quickly go from one extreme to another. “But that’s football – I’m not going to cry about it and just get on with it and hopefully get back in the squad as soon as I can.” The Wolves frontman was named in manager Giovanni Trapattoni’s provisional party for Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Sweden and the home clash with Austria four days later, but despite being a constant in the squad during the Italian’s reign, he did not make the final 23. Tardelli said: “We love all the players who have given us many successes and all players deserve the same things. The boss can’t call all the players. But for us, it’s not finished, the time for Kevin Doyle. We know he is a good player and we know in the future, it is possible for him to come back.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Experts Share Tips on How to Stay Safe During the Holidays

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisIt’s 17 days until Santa gets here, and it’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year. But with buying gifts and inviting family into the house this can become unsafe.“So the National Safety Council wants people to remember the “3 c’s.” We have cooking, candles, and your Christmas tree; those are some real fire hazards around the holidays. When in terms of cooking anything you should try to do it on the back burner just so your children can’t walk by and pull something off the stove. Set timers so that you not only know when your food is done but you also reduce the risk of the stove catching fire. As for Christmas trees they are so beautiful but don’t overload your lights nor more than 3 strands of lights in the same socket and then with candles blow them out before you leave the room or just buy fake ones,” National Safety Council Spokeswoman, Maureen Vogel said.Another thing to watch out for is a porch thief.“Being aware of when your package is being delivered and when it’s coming to you so that you can plan to be home or let a neighbor know. At the same time look out for your neighbors if you see that a package has arrived help them out,” Best Buy Smart Home Expert, Pedro Melendez explained.With new years right after Christmas, Vogel said drinking and driving increases.“Please designate a sober driver or make other arrangements. Ride, share, a taxi or whatever it takes please don’t get behind the wheel if you’ve had anything to drink,” Vogel shared.Removing unused medication is something most people tend to overlook.“Clean out your medicine cabinet. This is something that people don’t think about. Your unused pills, especially those highly addictive opioids they need to go. They shouldn’t be sitting in a medicine cabinet,” she noted.Other safety tips includes cleaning your house, and removing toys so that everyone has an enjoyable time.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Local Business Donates Oil Changes to Help Seniors for the HolidayNext Alpena Municipal Council Applies for State Grant on Behalf of NOAAlast_img read more

A weird night at Oracle, where the Warriors got every break

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ From Cleveland’s perspective, bad things.Cleveland led by two in the final minute, poised to steal Game 1, when James stepped up and tried to take a charge against Kevin Durant. Referee Ken Mauer called an offensive foul, but it was overturned after replay review.“We had doubt as to whether or not James was in the restricted area,” Mauer said.James was well outside the area, and the Cavs didn’t buy the explanation.“I read that play just as well as I’ve read any play in my career, maybe in my life,” James said.Durant tied the game with a couple of free throws awarded on the call reversal. Big break No. 3.And with about 4 seconds left in the fourth, George Hill went to the line with Cleveland down by one for two shots. Made the first. Missed the second. Smith got the rebound, and ran away from the basket. Overtime. Big break No. 4.“He thought we were up one,” Lue said.“I knew it was tied,” Smith insisted.

They have a coach who has won 80 percent of his career games. They have four All-Stars in the same lineup. They have two NBA MVPs.But they got every break in Game 1. Every break.Start in the beginning, when Smith slipped and stumbled into Thompson’s knee. It had all the makings of some sort of knee structural disaster — the hit came from the side, Thompson twisted awkwardly, went down in a heap and was obviously in immediate, intense pain. Thompson limped away to the Warriors’ locker room for evaluation.He was back in a few minutes. Big break No. 1.“I’m happy it’s just a muscle that got strained,” Thompson said.Then came the final seconds of the first half, Cleveland having a foul to give. Smith would have been best served hugging Curry to make sure no shot got off. Instead, Smith went for a steal — he didn’t get it — and Curry turned and coolly buried a 30-footer and sent the teams into intermission tied. Big break No. 2.“The Finals, man, anything is liable to happen,” Curry said.From his perspective, good things.
