Half-time: Chelsea 0 Stoke 0

first_imgChelsea dominated much of the first half at Stamford Bridge – but it was Stoke who came closest to scoring.Potters forward Jon Walters almost put his side ahead when he headed Glenn Whelan’s 19th-minute free-kick against the bar.Fernando Torres missed Chelsea’s best chance of the half when Juan Mata’s clever chip into the box left him with just keeper Asmir Begovic to beat, only for the striker to chest the ball down and then fail to connect with his shot.Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo opted to rotate his squad, leaving John Terry and Frank Lampard among the substitutes with Ramires partnering John Obi Mikel in midfield and Gary Cahill coming in an centre-back alongside David Luiz.Former England striker Michael Owen is on the bench for Stoke.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Cole; Mikel, Ramires; Mata, Oscar, Hazard; Torres.Subs: Romeu, Lampard, Moses, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Terry, Turnbull.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Five reasons why India lost England series, No. 1 spot

first_imgM.S. Dhoni had to bear the insult of his first series loss and that too a 4-nil whitewash.The warriors are vanquished. The Test tour of England has spelt nothing but disaster for Indian cricket. From the word go, India floundered, then fell before being flattened. But to many, a few key mistakes forced the writing on the wall.  Mistake No 1 An undercooked Team India : Deprived of any quality rest, Team India has been on the road virtually every day in the recent past.  From a nerve-sapping World Cup to a draining IPL followed by the tour of Caribbean, a tired India were thrown into the deep end of the extreme English conditions with just a single warm-up game, truly under prepared before being out-rightly exposed.  Mistake No 2 Uninspired captaincy: He has been rightly hailed as captain courageous, guiding India from one triumph to another during his three seasons at the helm. But in England this summer, the Midas touch was missing. The leader was lying low, struggling to lift his side. No wonder, M.S. Dhoni had to bear the insult of his first series loss and that too a 4-nil whitewash. Mistake No 3 Injury mismanagement: It started with Zaheer Khan’s hamstring and ankle and ended with Virender Sehwag’s dodgy shoulder: Two of India’s prime match-winners, but two men who didn’t seem fit to be in the Indian eleven. While Zaheer paid the price for rushing back early, a reluctant Sehwag was forced to take field despite being only 80 per cent fit. Mistake No 4 Selection gaffes: While injuries can never be predicted, the best of sides are always ready with cover. But that’s an area India were seriously lacking in.  With Sehwag lying cold in India and Gambhir injured, the team was stranded at Trent Bridge without a second regular opener.  And then again, the BCCI delayed naming a replacement for the injured Zaheer despite the bowler limping out on Day 1 of the 1st Test. And what’s worse was: the selectors picked an unfit and off-colour R.P. Singh to add to India’s woes. Mistake No 5 Finally, the half-cooked technology on offer in the series hurt the Indians a lot more than the hosts.  After insisting on keeping LBWs out of the mix, the rub of the green went against India as they lost out on key decisions.advertisementlast_img read more

MV Cheshire Reroutes to Iberian Peninsula

first_imgzoom Bibby Line’s troubled bulk carrier MV Cheshire, which suffered from overheating in its cargo holds on August 12, will not be heading to Gran Canaria after all.Instead, the ship, which was put under tow on August 21, has been diverted to a port on the Iberian Peninsula either in Spain or Portugal, the company said in an update.“Yesterday afternoon the maritime authorities in the Canaries were advised that there was no intention to proceed to any port in the Canary Islands and that the ship would now be towed by the Red Sea Fos to a port on the Iberian Peninsula either in Spain or Portugal,” the company said.“All parties are working in coordination to seek a port of destination where it will be possible to unload and store the remaining cargo residue at the port, inspect the ship with a view to carrying out repairs. We have been advised that the Canary Islands do not have a facility for the unloading and treatment of the cargo.”The ship is now en route to the peninsula and is being towed at a speed of 3.5 knots.The company said it was likely to take approximately 8 days to reach the port of destination. The salvage master, a salvage engineer and two firemen from the Resolve Marine team are on the tug and will accompany the ship to its destination. All the rest of the team are back on shore at this point, the company added.The salvage team from Resolve Marine has managed to board the ship by helicopter to continue with their inspection of machinery spaces on the ship and to take further samples of the cargo.“No further gas release has been observed since 25 August and there is no risk of pollution either from bunkers or from the cargo,” according to Bibby Line.last_img read more

Colts Coach Chuck Pagano Sidelined By Leukemia

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano, who had complained of fatigue recently, has been diagnosed with leukemia and is expected to be hospitalized six to eight weeks as he undergoes treatment.Team owner Jim Irsay made the announcement Monday during a somber and sometimes emotional news conference at the team complex.“I am optimistic. I feel with every fiber of my body and I know Chuck feels that he can beat this thing,” Irsay said.Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians will serve as the interim coach in Pagano’s absence. Irsay said that Pagano requested that Arians coach the team while he is undergoing treatment.Pagano told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen in a text that he “will be back soon.”Irsay, however, said it was unlikely Pagano would be able to assume full-time coaching duties this year.“I think it’s unlikely he’ll be all-in as the head coach the rest of this season,” Irsay said. “He may be able to come back and be in the press box or something.”Dr. Larry Cripe, the physician treating the coach at Indiana University’s Simon Cancer Center, said Pagano has acute myeloid leukemia, where the bone marrow is producing abnormal white blood cells that interfere with healthy blood cells. Symptoms can include weakness, weight loss and easy bruising or bleeding. Treatments can include chemotherapy, drugs and radiation therapy.Irsay said Pagano’s wife pushed him to see the doctor after noticing unusual bruising on the coach’s body.“He is ready to take this fight on and he is a fighter,” Irsay said.Pagano waited until the Colts’ bye week last week to be checked out after experiencing extreme fatigue and bruising, starting in training camp.Pagano believed he was experiencing football fatigue, but a blood test early last week revealed the diagnosis of leukemia.The initial phase of treatment usually requires a hospital stay of four to five weeks, though Irsay later acknowledged he expected Pagano to be in the hospital at least six weeks.Cripe said Pagano began the “arduous” treatment last week and that many adults do recover from the disease. For now, Pagano is being kept in a “protected” hospital environment where air is filtered and hand-washing is essential.Pagano was admitted last Wednesday evening; the team had a bye this weekend and players and the assistants, other than Arians, were not told Pagano was ill until Monday morning.Cripe said that Pagano is handling the chemotherapy treatments well so far. The goal of the treatment is to “cure” Pagano, which means the disease remains in remission for 3 to 5 years.“This is not an easy day for any of us,” Arians said. “It was not the way I ever dreamed about addressing a group like this. But I know he’ll get through it.”General manager Ryan Grigson said he was not yet certain how the rest of the coaching duties would be split up, though he expected all of the assistants to pitch in.The 51-year-old Pagano was hired in January after serving as the Baltimore Ravens‘ defensive coordinator.Pagano earned his first win Sept. 16 against the Vikings. The Colts (1-2) had a bye last weekend. read more

McAllister remains undefeated behind Clippers 52 victory

Columbus Clippers pitcher Zach McAllister came out with an undefeated record on the mound. As of Monday night, that still has not changed after Columbus defeated the Charlotte Knights, 5-2. McAllister faced 27 batters in the seven innings he pitched, giving up just five hits, two runs. He threw 102 pitches, an impressive 71 of them strikes. “It’s one thing where I got into a little groove and was able to carry it,” McAllister said. “I think that’s kind of big for me, having that good feeling on the mound and taking advantage of it when I can.” McAllister is now 6-0 on the season. McAllister was drafted in 2006 out of Illinois Valley Central High School by the New York Yankees. The Cleveland Indians acquired McAllister in August 2010. The learning curve has been a little harder for him coming straight out of high school, but he has handled it with grace. “I had some success early in my career at the lower levels, then this past year was a little rough for me, statistics-wise,” McAllister said. “I think that one of the best things to happen to me was to grow from the struggle.” The 6’6″ right-hander impresses his colleagues. “He keeps making strides each outing,” Clippers manager Mike Sarbaugh said. “His slider was really good, he did a good job of getting us off the field quick, and those are good nights when you are a pitcher.” Columbus jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. First baseman Travis Buck’s RBI single brought in center fielder Ezequiel Carrera, giving the Clippers a 1-0 lead. Columbus put another on the board when designated hitter Cord Phelps’ sacrifice fly brought in shortstop Jason Donald. A Buck pop-out put Columbus up 3-0 in the third inning, shortly followed by Donald’s solo shot in the fifth, making it 4-0. Charlotte cut the score to 4-1 in the sixth inning when shortstop Eduardo Escobar’s double brought in second baseman Gookie Dawkins. Center fielder Jordan Danks put the only damper on the night for McAllister when he crunched a solo homerun in the seventh inning, making it 4-2. McAllister was still not be phased, as he ended the inning striking out Escobar. Columbus put their final run on the board in the eighth inning, making it 5-3. McAllister is already looking forward to improving more. “I just got to go out and take every day like it’s your last one out here,” he said. “Today was a great day for me, and I am happy, but the next one is the one that matters for me.” Columbus is now 24-7 on the year. Charlotte dropped to 12-18. They will continue their four-game-series against Charlotte tomorrow night at Huntington Park at 6:35 p.m. read more

Money mismanaged in TCI Sports Commission scandal

first_imgThe erratic financial management decisions at the TCI Sports Commission were exposed in an audit and includes findings where staff was loaned money, but there was no reporting on the loans; where reimbursements were made for claims without receipts and other reasonable evidence that personal money was spent and needed to be paid back and missing documents including no budgets, no bank reconciliation statements and no register of fixed assets.  Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 26, 2016 – The now defunct Sports Commission was horribly managed and this forced its shut down.  During recent Public Accounts Committee meetings at Parliament, it was exposed in an audit report that hardly any record was kept of monies going out of the coffers of the entity which was set up as a statutory body, with Alvin Parker as its Director. Parker has already been found culpable by a special tribunal, Magnetic Media has learned, but he has appealed the case which charges him with mismanaging public funds to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Alvin Parker is on administrative leave during this situation and though the Commission has been dismantled, he continues to receive a salary from TCIG and others have been absorbed in a new entity managing sports, back under the Ministry of Education.   Related Items: The recommendations exposed that while the TCI Sports Commission was certainly operating way out of the bounds of a responsible organization; no one was watching or noticing which allowed the risky practices to continue for at least three years. Blank cheques were left signed, almost $50,000 reimbursed to the suspended Director, conflicts of interest where Parker’s business partner allegedly also got money from the Commission, where payment was made for things the Sports Commission did not receive; disorder when it comes to security staff logging hours, without a system the audit exposed that anyone could claim any amount of hours and inflate time actually worked and scrutiny was sorely lacking for this publicly funded body.    In 2009-2010, there were 662 transactions but 312 totaling over $123,000 were without proper documentation; by the next year, 2010-2011 the same continued and there were 228 of 605 transactions undocumented adding up to over $234,000; and in 2011 to 2012 again, more of the same as the transactions not documented were 28 and they totaled, over $173,000.  Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
