Swans season ends with a whimper

first_imgFulham rounded off their Barclays Premier League campaign with a first win in eight games as Swansea’s memorable campaign concluded with a 3-0 defeat at the Liberty Stadium. Press Association The Cottagers, who had picked up just one point from their previous seven games, took the lead in the 22nd minute through Alex Kacaniklic, with Dimitar Berbatov and Urby Emanuelson sealing the win after the break. Capital One Cup winners Swansea enjoyed an extended spell of pressure during the second half but Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer frustrated them with fine saves from Pablo Hernandez, Wayne Routledge and Ashley Williams. center_img Bryan Ruiz should have given the Cottagers the lead in just the third minute. Kacaniklic threaded a pass through the Swansea backline but Ruiz dallied after beating Chico Flores and the chance was lost. Swansea settled after the early scare, and Routledge fired narrowly wide having linked smartly with Jonathan de Guzman and Nathan Dyer. Hernandez then failed to make the most of a good opportunity as he dragged wide after picking off a misplaced pass from Philippe Senderos – and it proved costly as Fulham went up the other end to grab the opener. Ruiz and Berbatov combined to put Kacaniklic through, with Williams playing him yards onside, and the Sweden international calmly slotted a left-footed shot low past Michel Vorm. Swansea’s first half was summed up seconds before the break when De Guzman beat Michu to a header from Angel Rangel’s cross, with the Spaniard well placed to convert his 23rd goal of the season. Hernandez had Swansea’s clearest sight of goal on the hour as Rangel turned a Leon Britton pass into the winger’s path but Schwarzer was quickly out to make the stop. The pair went head to head again moments later and it was again the Fulham man who came out on top, tipping the Spaniard’s placed shot round the post. And all Swansea’s pressure came to nothing as Berbatov got Fulham’s second 13 minutes from time. Ruiz was the architect, catching Rangel lying deep behind the rest of his back four to send the former Manchester United man clear to laconically round Vorm and slot into an empty net. Substitute Emanuelson rounded off the scoring in stoppage time by tapping home after Vorm could only parry Giorgos Karagounis’ effort. last_img read more

Ronald Koeman not ready to discuss new Southampton contract

first_imgRonald Koeman has denied reports he is close to extending his contract as Southampton manager and insisted he does not expect to do so at least until the summer. “It’s too early to discuss that,” said Koeman, who remains the subject of speculation surrounding his chances of managing the struggling Holland national team. “I had several meetings with the board in the last two weeks but not about my contract. “I don’t think it’s the right moment to talk about it. There’s still a long time to go. Maybe something for after the summer, not this season.” Southampton on Sunday host Manchester United, who are managed by fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal in the Premier League. Sunday’s fixture also represents the first return to St Mary’s of midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, who left Southampton for United for £25million in the summer having also pursued a transfer elsewhere a year earlier. The two episodes will likely have done little to endear him to the club’s fans, but Koeman said: “I hope the reaction to him is a positive one. “He did everything for the club, he had a great time in Southampton, he was ready for the next step. “I think we have to receive the player like we normally do with other players. How the fans react to Rickie Lambert is what you expect of fans receiving those who did everything for the club in a very positive way I hope. “It’s difficult always to say that it’s not possible to leave the club, but to tell him twice is impossible. We had a very good relationship after the difficult summer that we had at the club, his reaction was fantastic, he had a big part in a big season last year and it’s best for him and for the player, that’s the important thing. “He’s now a player for Manchester United and I wish him the best, but not on Sunday.” Koeman has 18 months remaining on his present deal, which began in the summer of 2014 when he agreed to succeed Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino, and has impressed in difficult circumstances during his time at the club. It had been reported that Southampton, who Koeman has impressively led since Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert and Calum Chambers followed Pochettino out the door in 2014, were ready to offer the Dutchman a new contract but on Friday he was adamant that is not the case. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Couple Accused of Trafficking Drugs from Stuart Home; Children Used as Shields

first_imgLaw enforcement officials say they have arrested a husband and wife for allegedly trafficking drugs from their Stuart apartment.According to investigators, a Martin County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team arrested 33-year-old Jeffrey Lopez at a gas station, then went to the couple’s apartment on Northwest Spruce Ridge Drive.The sheriff’s office says that is when 22-year-old Diamond Lynn Lopez tried to flush several bags of cocaine down a toilet and kitchen sink, while using her four children to shield herself from the officials.“The other thing that was really noteworthy about this case is that there was a substantial amount of fentanyl and crack within 12 inches from a pizza that she was preparing. It was right there in the same proximity of the food that she was feeding the children,” says Sheriff William Snyder.Investigators secured the children and confiscated cocaine, fentanyl, and drug paraphernalia, as well as thousands of dollars in cash.The raid took place following a three-month investigation by the Stuart police, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement).Jail records reveal that Diamond and Jeffrey Lopez are now facing numerous drug-trafficking charges.last_img read more

Both sides in Australia pay dispute hail Aussie Rules deal

first_img(REUTERS) – Cricket Australia and the players’ union have both hailed a new deal signed by the country’s professional Australian Rules footballers as backing their cases in a bitter pay dispute.Australia’s top cricketers face being locked out unless a new memorandum of understanding is struck between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) before the end of the month.On Tuesday, the Australian Rules players agreed a A$1.84 billion (1.1 billion pounds) six-year deal with the Australian Football League (AFL) that tied their wages to competition revenue for the first time.At the heart of the cricket dispute is a long-standing agreement that gives the players a fixed percentage of the revenue of the game, a deal which Cricket Australia says prevents them from sufficiently investing in the grassroots.The ACA were first to weigh in on the AFL agreement, with chief executive Alistair Nicholson congratulating the indigenous football code for “embracing the virtues of partnership” in the deal.“What these two parties are trying to achieve is what cricket has enjoyed for 20 years,” he said in a statement.“The AFL is at a different stage of evolving the partnership than cricket. But what’s clear is that this sense of co-operation is the way to go.”Cricket Australia hit back yesterday by also welcoming the AFL deal which, it said, was “more closely aligned with the proposal that Cricket Australia has offered our elite players”.“Both the AFL deal and the proposal that CA has put to the nation’s cricketers feature guaranteed payments,” said a spokesman. “Above the guaranteed payments, players share in additional revenue after expenses are taken into account. This is more akin to a profit share.”There is no sign of an immediate resolution to the dispute.Australia vice-captain David Warner told Channel Nine at the weekend that the players might compromise on the percentage of revenue they received but would not agree a deal that did not include it at all.“We’ve been offered contracts and we’ve knocked them back. That’s because we want to make sure the female players and domestic players are in this revenue-sharing model,” he said.“In the decades that have gone past, the past players that have been in our situation have stood up for us. I was a domestic player, I was a young kid coming through; we’re doing the same as what they did as well.”The upcoming Australia A tour of South Africa, a two-Test series in Bangladesh and a limited-overs tour of India are under threat from the dispute, with the Ashes also looming at the end of the year.last_img read more

Gayle hits whirlwind hundred to notch 22nd in T20s

first_imgTORONTO, Canada (CMC) – Veteran opener Chris Gayle slammed his 22nd Twenty20 hundred but rain had the final say as the Global T20 Canada contest between Vancouver Knights and Montreal Tigers ended in a no-result here Monday night.Sent in at the CAA Centre, Knights piled up a record 276 for three off their 20 overs – the highest-ever franchise T20 total and the second highest T20 total overall.The left-handed Gayle was the catalyst with a breathtaking unbeaten 122 off 54 deliveries with seven fours and a dozen sixes.South African Rassie van der Dussen struck 56 from 25 deliveries while Dutchman Tobias Visee blasted a 19-ball 51, as Knights embarked on an astonishing run-spree.Facing a record run chase, rain during the break then prevented Tigers from facing a single delivery, as the match was eventually called off due to bad weather.By then, however, Gayle had treated spectators to a storm of his own. The 39-year-old started slowly and it was Visee who dominated the opening stand of 63 off 27 deliveries, lashing 11 fours and a six.When Visee perished in the fifth over, Gayle had managed just 11 runs from eight deliveries but he quickly took charge of the innings in a stunning display of power-hitting.He raced to his half-century off 27 balls, reaching his landmark by clearing the ropes at mid-wicket with off-spinner Nikhil Dutta in the 12th over.Gayle then required only another 20 deliveries to reach triple figures, again bringing up the achievement in style when he deposited West Indies teammate, off-spinner Sunil Narine, over long on for six in the 17th over.Along the way, Gayle added 67 for the second wicket with fellow Jamaican and Windies batsman, Chadwick Walton (29) and a further 139 for the third wicket with van der Dussen whose innings required three fours and five sixes.last_img read more
