Dozens held over derby game trouble

first_img Press Association A total of 29 football fans have now been arrested after violence erupted following a derby match in Newcastle. Video footage of the violence showed fans picking up empty glass bottles and throwing them towards the police as well as a burning bin lying on its side in the road. Pictures and video also emerged of a man trying to punch a police horse before he was hauled to the ground by officers. The West Yorkshire Police Horses Twitter account have tweeted a picture of the horse in question, called Bud, saying he is safe and well and appears fine. The picture showed Bud in his paddock on Monday morning and thanked people for their concern. They also tweeted that all other horses returned safe and well. On Sunday Chief Superintendent Steve Neill, of Northumbria Police, said: “The vast majority of fans were well behaved and enjoyed the Tyne-Wear derby for the great occasion that it is. “Disappointingly, there was some disorder involving what appear to be Newcastle United supporters following the match in the city centre, including an incident at Central Station. “Disruptive behaviour of any kind is not tolerated. Inquiries will take place into these incidents and action will be taken against all those involved.” center_img Three police officers were also injured during clashes with Newcastle fans after their side’s 3-0 defeat to Sunderland at St James’ Park. Amid sporadic violence across the city centre, missiles were thrown at officers as the fans tried to confront Black Cats supporters at Central Station, Newcastle. last_img read more

Angels sticking with struggling José Suarez in the rotation

first_imgANAHEIM — A day after José Suarez allowed six runs in three innings — the shortest of his 11 big league starts — he was penciled back into the rotation for another turn on Saturday.Suarez’s rough outing against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday raised his ERA to 6.57. He has allowed at least four runs in his last three outings. Suarez, 21, has only had two games so far in which he’s pitched at least five innings and allowed three runs or fewer.Asked on Tuesday about Suarez’s status in the rotation, Manager Brad Ausmus said, essentially, that the Angels don’t have many choices.“Part of it is the pitching situation that we are in and the starters we have available,” Ausmus said. “We still have to have a starter out there every fifth day. We do want him to maintain his confidence and that can be difficult when you get hit around. But for the foreseeable future, he’s going to be in the rotation.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Ramírez, however, has still not shown the velocity that he had before he was hurt. In 2017, his breakthrough season as a starter with the Angels, his fastball averaged 95.5 mph. Since Ramírez returned, his fastball has averaged coming back from surgery, it’s been 91.0 mph.Asked whether Ramírez can be effective in the long run at that velocity, Ausmus said: “We’ll find out. I don’t think it’s a guarantee the velocity doesn’t come back either. It might not come back this year, but it might come back after an offseason, at least to what he was accustomed to before the surgery.”ALSONoé Ramírez, who has been out because of a viral infection, came through a simulated game without any issues on Tuesday. Ausmus said they will decide in the next day or so when to activate him. As soon as Ramírez is activated, he will need to serve his three-game suspension for hitting Jake Marisnick with a pitch. The Angels will have to play with 24 players for those three games…Related Articles Jaime Barría, who is currently in Triple-A, is not an option to take Suarez’s next turn because Barría was just optioned on Sunday, and he can’t come back in less than 10 days unless he’s replacing an injured player.Nick Tropeano started on Saturday for Salt Lake, so he could be rested enough to take Suarez’s turn if the Angels wanted to go that way. Tropeano has a 6.44 ERA in Salt Lake, and he’s allowed 15 runs in 13-2/3 innings in the majors this season.The Angels also could piece together a bullpen game using multi-inning relievers like Trevor Cahill and Taylor Cole, and then bring Barría back next week.Further complicating the Angels pitching plans, they have a doubleheader on Tuesday in Texas, so they’ll need an extra starter for one of those games.WAITING FOR VELOFive games into JC Ramírez’s return from Tommy John surgery, he has allowed four runs in eight innings. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Adalberto Mejia was placed on the restricted list “to tend to a personal matter,” Ausmus said, without providing any further information. There is no timeframe for his return. Jake Jewell was recalled to take Mejia’s spot on the roster….The Angels optioned José Rodriguez, who had pitched four innings on Monday night. That created the opening for Griffin Canning to be activated from the injured list.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Dillon Peters, 2-1, 3.45) vs. Pirates (Chris Archer, 3-8, 5.23), 5:07 p.m., Fox Sports Westcenter_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

BiH loses of Belgium in a Decisive Match for 2018 World Cup Qulifier

first_imgThe National football team of BiH was defeated at the Grbavica Stadium against the selection of Belgium with the result 3:4, in the match within the 9th round of qualifications for the World Cup 2018.The National football team of BiH led after the first half, but players of Mehmed Bazdarevic played much weaker in the second half of the match, which Belgians used to reverse the result and win at the end.A cold shower for our players followed already in the fourth minute on Grbavica, when Meunier took advantage of the confusion in the rows of BH team and scored after the assistance of Hazard.Our team took the initiative then, and Medunjanin had the best chance when he performed a dangerous shot from the edge of the field.After half an hour, the Dragons managed to equalize the score. Kolasinac led a brilliant action on the left side and sent the ball to Dzeko, who managed to send the ball to the Belgian goal stands. Courtois managed to defend this shot, but Medunjanin ran after the ball and managed to score for 1:1.Only nine minutes later, Grbavica Stadium exploded again. After Vertonghen’s huge mistake, Visca came in front of the Courtois and routinely scored for 2:1.Before the break, Belgian players Vermaelen, Hazard and Batshuay, had several great opportunities, but they eventually hit the goal stands. Nevertheless, our goalkeeper Begovic was great with several excellent interventions and we went on a break with a result 2:1 for our selection.The Belgians started the second half in the same rhythm. Batshiayi and Alderweireld missed some great chances, and then they reached a well-deserved equalization of the result just half an hour before the end of the match.Fierce attacks continued, and Begovic managed to save his goal in 67th minute after Tielemansa’s shot.The Belgians scored the third goal from the corner of the previous action. De Bruyne centered, Carrasco passed, and Vertonghen shot the ball into the net for a new turn.Just 8 minutes before the end of the match, Djumic tied the score once again, but all hopes for a favorable result were destroyed by Carrasco who scored for the final result 3: 4.With this victory, Belgium increased its lead in Group H, while BiH remained in the second place with one point more than Greece, but also with one match more.(Source: N.

Power couple Nadal, Federer take Europe closer to Laver Cup

first_imgPrague, Czech Republic | AFP |  Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer took Team Europe to within two wins of lifting the Laver Cup as they won their singles and their first-ever doubles rubber together in Prague on Saturday.The world’s highest ranking duo handed Team Europe skippered by Bjorn Borg a 9-3 lead over Team World captained by John McEnroe after two days.After Nadal and Federer had won their singles rubbers, all eyes at Prague’s sold-out O2 Arena were then on the two legends who played on the same side of the net for the first time in careers which have stretched the best part of two decades.They started the doubles rubber against Sam Querrey and Jack Sock on a high, earning a break in the first set to win 6-4.They visibly enjoyed the experience, with Federer laughing off a massive air shot halfway through the set.However, they were then in far more serious mood in the second set as both lost their serve, allowing the American pair to level with a 6-1 win. Much to their relief, the world’s top two players, with 35 Grand Slam singles titles between them, regained their composure in time to sweep their rivals 10/5 in a super tie-break which decided the clash.In Saturday’s opener, Federer, this year’s Australian Open and Wimbledon winner and the world number two, swept 16th-ranked Querrey 6-4, 6-2 after earning a break in the first set and two in the second. World number one Nadal, who won the French and US Open, then overcame a scare to beat 21st-ranked Sock 6-3, 3-6, 11/9.Nadal and Sock traded breaks early into the rubber but Nadal added another to take the first set.“When you have the opportunity, you strike” @rodlaver pic.twitter.com/2offJT9rWP— Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) September 23, 2017The second set was a mirror image of the first with Sock taking the honours and earning a nerve-wracking super tie-break, in which he came back from 5-1 down to level at 9-9 before Nadal showed his dominance to win.Australia’s world number 20 Nick Kyrgios then gave Team World a boost as he beat 19th-ranked Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 10/6 in a clash of big servers.Kyrgios lost his very first serve and struggled against the dominant Berdych in the first set, but then he took the second in a tie-break as both held on to their serves, before winning the super tie-break aided by 18 aces against Berdych’s 16.On Sunday, three singles and one doubles will close the tournament, with the players earning three points for each win after two on Saturday and one on Friday.On Friday, Marin Cilic beat Frances Tiafoe, Dominic Thiem overpowered John Isner and Alexander Zverev saw off Denis Shapovalov to hand Europe a 3-1 lead as Nadal and Berdych lost to Kyrgios and Sock in doubles.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
