Milner hails Man City’s character

first_img Midfielder Milner netted City’s fourth in Saturday’s 4-2 win at Craven Cottage as the visitors responded from seeing their 2-0 lead evaporate before going up a gear to triumph and sit one point behind leaders Liverpool. “When they got two back we really had to dig in,” Milner told Press Association “To come back again and show the character to kick on and get the two goals was pleasing. “It’s a good start to the festive period. A lot of games coming up, but if we can keep that desire and that will to win up, that will get you most of the way.” City were coasting at half-time courtesy of Yaya Toure’s excellent free-kick and Vincent Kompany’s goal, but Kieran Richardson pulled one back early in the second half before City captain Kompany spectacularly sliced into his own net. Jesus Navas restored the visitors’ advantage before his fellow substitute Milner converted a delightful cross from Alvaro Negredo to seal victory and kill off any Fulham hopes of a reply. “He’s got great ability,” said Milner of Negredo. “He doesn’t really need to use his right foot, his left foot’s that good. He can do anything with it. “It was all made in the ball really. I just had to make sure I got a bit of contact on it. “I was pleased to see it go in, it just gave us that cushion for the last few minutes.” James Milner praised Manchester City’s character after they fought off a Fulham fightback to stay firmly on Liverpool’s heels ahead of the Boxing Day showdown at the Etihad Stadium. It was City’s third away win from nine games this season, a statistic which contrasts starkly with their 100 per cent home record from eight matches. That perfect record will be tested on Thursday against Liverpool and the rampaging Luis Suarez. City boss Manuel Pellegrini insisted the losses at Cardiff, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Sunderland were not relevant as his team had proved themselves on the road, including against European champions Bayern Munich. He said: “We continue to ask why we don’t play away like we do at home, but we’ve won three Champions League games away, two in the Capital One Cup and in our last three away Premier League matches we won two and have drawn one. “We cannot continue talking about Cardiff and Aston Villa.” Fulham have lost nine of their last 10 games – the win over Aston Villa the anomaly – but boss Rene Meulensteen is optimistic a change in fortunes will soon come. Meulensteen said: “It’s really hard for them to take, to put so much effort in and so much positivity in the way we play. “We never lost that spirit and I said, ‘listen we’re playing well enough, if we get one goal back and we get the crowd going, who knows what happens?’ “It’s just a shame when it gets to 2-2 that we didn’t just steady the ship a little bit. I would’ve been very, very happy if it had finished 2-2. “We’re all aware of what position we’re in, but we also know that if we keep playing like this and if we keep producing this sort of energy we’re eventually going to get the points we deserve. “At the moment we’re conceding far too easily and too many goals and we don’t take our chances that we get. “But these are things we can work on. But the core, the backbone of the performance is good.” In the absence of Dimitar Berbatov, who picked up a groin injury in training on Friday, Adel Taarabt led the line. “He did exceptionally well,” Meulensteen added. “Adel is a guy that is full of creativity and energy going forwards. We used him where he’s good.” Next Fulham travel to Norwich and Hull in matches which could see the momentum shift before the year’s end. “There are a lot of positives to take into the games against Norwich and Hull,” Meulensteen said. last_img read more

ICC rules out complacency on World Cup security after New Zealand shootings

first_imgWELLINGTON (Reuters) – There is no question of being complacent with security at this year’s World Cup following a mass shooting at two Christchurch mosques last week, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said.Members of the Bangladesh cricket team narrowly avoided being caught up in the shooting, which killed 50 people, by a suspected white supremacist last Friday.Their third Test against New Zealand that had been scheduled to start on Saturday at nearby Hagley Oval was subsequently cancelled and it also prompted calls from Asian cricket officials and politicians to step up security for touring teams.ICC chief executive David Richardson said security was always an issue for his organisation and ensuring the May 30-July 14 World Cup in England and Wales was safe would be a priority.“It has always been the case that we’ve had to make sure that we keep security absolutely priority, not only for the players but also for the visiting media, fans, spectators and everyone who attends the event,” Richardson was quoted as saying by cricket website Cricinfo.“Something happening in New Zealand probably took a lot of people by surprise and it emphasised the need not to be complacent, especially going into the World Cup.“I know the work done already by the security director together with all the security agencies in the UK, they are leaving no stone unturned, and if the threat level should rise in any way we will (further upgrade) the plans in place.”Cricket teams have previously abandoned tours because of security fears but most had been in South Asia, including Bangladesh which Australia decided against touring in 2015.Sri Lanka’s team bus was attacked by gunmen in Lahore during their tour of Pakistan in 2009. Six members of the team were wounded, while six security personnel and two civilians were killed.Pakistan still host nearly all of their international matches in the United Arab Emirates due to ongoing security concerns.New Zealand abandoned their 1987 tour of Sri Lanka following a bombing near their hotel in Colombo in which more than 100 people were killed.They also abandoned a tour of Pakistan in May 2002 following a suicide bombing outside their hotel in Karachi.last_img read more

Senators discuss budget concerns

first_imgMonday night’s Undergraduate Student Government Senate meeting tackled budgetary issues within USG and determined which organizations on USG’s Program Board will receive additional funding this spring.Treasurer Kameron VanWoerkom proposed an amendment to USG’s bylaws that would restructure the organization’s discretionary fund. The discretionary fund allocates USG funding to undergraduate student organizations on campus that do not fall under the umbrella of USG’s Program Board.VanWoerkom said the fund has lost some of its discretion over the years, due to a flood of applications overwhelming board members.“The discretionary fund comprises one-third of our Program Board funding,” VanWoerkom said. “They’ve been receiving four to six applications per week, and their meetings are taking longer than the one hour they are planned for.”The discretionary fund received 121 expense requests this year, and more than 70 applications for funding. Under current USG bylaws, members of the discretionary board are unpaid. VanWoerkom believes the amount of work for these individuals is far too strenuous relative to their compensation.“There can be lots of stress, particularly for the director and assistant director,” VanWoerkom said.The proposed amendment will divide the discretionary fund in half. Instead of a single committee, the organization will split into two committees headed by two co-directors. Applications and proposals will be shared equally between the two committees, along with the same source of  USG funding.The goal of this reorganization is to have each board process two to three applications per week, and for discussion to be more thoughtful and conversations with student organizations to be more productive.“Conservations with student [organizations] can be time consuming [for the Discretionary Committee], but also very rewarding, as they help determine which organizations deserve funding,” VanWoerkom said.The Senate will vote on the proposed amendment after spring break.USG also voted on several funding requests. Notably, the Senate struck down a funding request from the Concerts Committee.“The amount we’re able to give them is [too] small relative to the amount they need,” said Greek senator Nicole Schrad.A Latino Student Assembly funding request was also denied and performing arts was partially funded. The Speakers Committee received funding on the condition they finalize their contract with high-profile speakers for the spring.last_img read more
