first_imgSunderland head coach Gus Poyet will return to former club Tottenham expecting no favours from old friend Tim Sherwood. Poyet’s men have won none of their last six league games and went into the weekend four points adrift of safety, a situation which worsened on Saturday when Fulham, Crystal Palace and West Brom all won to leave them three points further behind and at the foot of the pile. Poyet will hope the experience of men such as skipper John O’Shea and central defensive partner Wes Brown will help to pull them through, although he is well aware they are more used to winning trophies from their time together at Manchester United rather than fighting for their lives. He said: “I’m sure they don’t like to be in this situation. The other one is easier. That pressure of being in there to win is beautiful. Poyet admits there is pressure on his players, but he insists there always is and that it should not make any difference. He said: “It’s a good excuse. When I went on to the pitch and went across the line and played 200 games, it didn’t matter where I was playing, the pressure was always the same. “Sometimes I ask myself if I am on another planet now and football has changed that much.” The 46-year-old Uruguayan spent three years at White Hart Lane as a player and had a spell there as a coach too before launching his managerial career. He played in the same Spurs side as current manager Tim Sherwood, a man he hopes is given the chance to make his mark on the team amid speculation that a replacement is already being lined up. However, he knows will receive no sympathy from his one-time team-mate as he looks for the victory he so desperately needs to give the Black Cats renewed hope that they can out of Barclays Premier League relegation trouble. Poyet said: “No chance. From Tim Sherwood? No, no, no, no favours.” Indeed, Poyet admitted he would much rather have Sherwood alongside him rather than in the opposite dug-out. Asked what kind of a character he is, the South American replied: “Top-class, I like him a lot. I like him with me, I don’t like him against. “He knows football, he cares about football. He knows the club well, he knows the players because he has been there for a while, he knows what the fans want. “He has got a strong character, a presence. I don’t know him as a manager day-to-day or tactically, but from outside he has all the attributes to be a very good manager.” Sunderland’s mission in North London, and indeed for the rest of the season, is clear. Only victories will get them out of trouble and that cannot happen quickly enough with just eight games remaining. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img“Sellin’ the Sizzle” runs Wednesdays. To comment on this article, visit or email Jonathan at [email protected] On July 1, the day the Pac-10 officially became the Pac-12, the change seemed like a great idea.Commissioner Larry Scott welcomed new members Colorado and Utah, saying the two schools “instantly enhance the strength of our conference both academically and athletically.”The additions helped Scott secure a 12-year, $3-billion television deal with ESPN and Fox, creating a national Pac-12 network that would greatly increase exposure of member schools’ athletic programs.Four months later, the Buffs and Utes are a combined 1-9 in Pac-12 play, and with schools like Texas A&M, TCU and Boise State switching conferences, Scott’s expansion choices are looking more short-sighted by the day.To be fair, Utah couldn’t have been expected to struggle this mightily. The Utes had won at least 10 games in each of the last three seasons, including a 13-0 mark in 2008 capped off by a 31-17 Sugar Bowl win over Alabama.A season-ending injury to quarterback Jordan Wynn and a banged-up receiving corps have caused Utah’s passing game, ranked 100th in the nation, to suffer. Its next four opponents have a combined record of 10-23, which means the Utes could still qualify for a decent bowl game.Colorado’s results have been more in line with the program’s recent history. The Buffaloes haven’t won more than seven games in a season since 2005, finished the season ranked since 2002 or won a bowl game since 2004. Colorado went a combined 6-18 in its final three seasons in the Big 12.For many traveling USC fans, Friday night’s game against the 1-8 Buffaloes is not a must-see matchup, but rather a convenient excuse to take a weekend ski trip to the Rocky Mountains.Colorado has lost its last four games by 41, 28, 43 and 34 points. The Buffaloes only win came at home back in September against now 3-5 Colorado State.The Buffaloes rank last in the Pac-12 in scoring offense, rushing offense, red zone offense, scoring defense, rushing defense, passing defense efficiency, red zone defense, sacks against, opponents’ first downs, interceptions and kickoff returns.In short, this is one bad football team.The newcomers’ struggles haven’t been contained to the gridiron either.Colorado’s women’s volleyball team is 0-15 in Pac-12 play. The Buffaloes have won only three sets in conference play this season. Utah, meanwhile, has posted a 4-11 record, good for 10th place in the Pac-12.Utah sits in sixth place in the conference in women’s soccer, while 1-8-1 Colorado is in 11th.The Pac-12 preseason basketball polls predict Colorado to finish 10th on the men’s side and 11th on the women’s. The Utah women’s team is slated to finish a respectable sixth, but the men have been picked to finish dead last in the conference.The Buffaloes did just sweep the men’s and women’s cross country championships last week, but for the self-titled “Conference of Champions,” surely a school has to do more than dominate long-distance running to earn admission.Though the Pac-12 hasn’t dominated the modern football landscape like the SEC or stacked up to the ACC and Big East on the basketball court recently, the conference stands out nationally for the all-around strength of its athletic programs.The Pac-12 has led all conferences in national titles in 45 of the past 51 years and its 442 all-time national championships are nearly 200 more than its closest competitor.Just last season alone, the conference won national titles in men’s tennis and men’s water polo (USC), men’s and women’s swimming (California), women’s water polo and men’s gymnastics (Stanford), women’s indoor track and field (Oregon), softball (Arizona State), and women’s golf (UCLA).Things could still turn around for Colorado and Utah. The schools have combined for 42 NCAA national titles in their history.From 2001 to 2005, Colorado’s football team played in four Big 12 championship games. They finished their season ranked in the top five nationally four times between 1989 and 1994, including when they split the national title with Georgia Tech in 1990.Utah’s men’s basketball team won the Mountain West title in 2009 and has a history of success. They finished in the top 10 nationally from 1997 to 1999, including a trip to the national title game in 1998.Their membership in the Pac-12 alone, along with the increase in television revenue and prestige that go along with it, will help both schools in recruiting top athletes.First impressions are powerful and the Utes and Buffaloes have done little so far to win over critics.The “we need time to adjust to a higher level of competition” excuses won’t fly for long.If Colorado and Utah don’t get it together soon, Scott will have some serious explaining to do. A combined record of 1-9 is not going to cut it in the Conference of Champions.last_img read more

first_imgAn interesting photo appeared on social networks and it was taken in one of the Mostar’s gardens, and the four biggest living football legends of Mostar are on it.They are the three stars of Velez from the 1970’s: Dusko Bajevic, Enver Maric and Franjo Vladic as well as their successor in the red jersey, Blaz Sliskovic.History remembers football matches in which all four of them played at the same time. It was another time, a large club and a tradition that is remembered by thousands of residents of Mostar who now live all around the world.Difficult time came later, and Mostar and its football were not what they used to be once, but the connections between people stay.(Source: R.

first_imgOfficials in Daytona Beach, Florida are reporting that a 10-year-old has died after his friend accidentally shot him in the head while the two played with a gun.The incident was reported Saturday around 8:25 pm at a home on South Keech Street.Authorities say the two were visiting the home of the teen’s relative when the boys somehow broke into a locked bedroom and located a semi-automatic pistol that was in a locked drawer. The child and the teen then began playing with the weapon when it went off and a bullet struck the child in the head.When authorities arrived, they found the child laying face down on the floor and bleeding from his mouth.He was then rushed to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead Tuesday.Authorities say they are still investigating the incident, however, Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri did report that they do not believe the cause of the incident was due to the owner’s negligence and that the owner “did what they felt necessary to secure the firearm.”last_img read more

first_imgUnder current Florida law, a deranged person can tell people about a plan to commit a mass shooting and not be arrested, as long as the threat is not written down. One existing law makes it a crime in Florida to write or compose “a threat to kill or to do bodily injury to the person to whom the communication is sent.” Massullo adds that several senators have also expressed interest in filing a companion bill, and the Florida Sheriffs Association is supporting the bill. They want a mass shooting threat, whether it is written or spoken, to be a second-degree felony. However, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission, which is reviewing ways to improve school safety after last year’s Parkland shooting, has joined with Republican State Representative Ralph Massullo in an effort to change that policy. Verbal threats to kill people with firearms are not addressed in Florida law at this time.center_img A draft report from the Commission states, “If someone calls a bank today and tells the bank employee that he is going to ‘blow up the bank,’ that is a crime. If someone calls the same bank and says he is going ‘shoot up’ the bank, that is not a crime.” State Representative Massullo, from Lecanto, filed a bill last week that would modify the bomb threat law to address firearms as well. He says,“We don’t want to infringe on people’s First Amendment rights and that can be tricky, so we’re crafting the legislation around a statute we already have in place.” The recommendation will be submitted to Governor Ron DeSantis and the Legislature in early November. Another law, which is designed to outlaw bomb threats, makes it a crime to threaten in writing or verbally, to”throw, project, place, or discharge any destructive device.”last_img read more
