Liverpool begin title defence against Leeds

first_imgFootball Liverpool will begin the defence of their title with a home game against newly promoted Leeds United, and will barely have time to catch their breath after the fixtures for the 2020-21 Premier League season confirmed a hectic nine months ahead. Following a campaign that lasted nearly a full calendar year, an unprecedentedly compact competition now awaits the top flight. Clubs competing in Europe will barely get a midweek off all year. The solitary concession to fatigue is the guarantee of a 30-day break between last season and next, meaning Manchester City and Manchester United will start a week later than their rivals after their participation in the Uefa finals competition. They will visit Wolves and host Crystal Palace respectively, on 19 September. The Champions League qualifiers Chelsea start at Brighton while Arsenal travel to Fulham, winners of the Championship play-off final. Another eye-catching match in the first round of fixtures will see Sheffield United host Wolves on Monday 14 September. After Jürgen Klopp’s champions face Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship winners at Anfield, they visit Chelsea prior to hosting Arsenal. Liverpool also have a Merseyside derby and an away match against Manchester City in their first 10 fixtures. Tottenham face the busiest opening schedule. José Mourinho’s side potentially have three Europa League qualifying fixtures and two Carabao Cup ties to cram alongside their league commitments before the beginning of October. Spurs start the season at home to Everton. The team with the toughest start of all appears to be West Ham. After beginning their campaign at home to Newcastle, David Moyes’s men play Arsenal (a), Wolves (h), Leicester (a), Spurs (a), Manchester City (h) and Liverpool (h) in their following six matches. With a delayed start bookended by the need to finish in enough time to accommodate the rescheduled Euro 2020, which is due to start on 11 June, the 2020-21 season will be a month shorter than normal. Most midweeks will be given over to cup competitions (including European games), while there will also be two additional rounds of midweek fixtures in the new year. Whatever space is left over will be required for rescheduled games. -The Guardianlast_img read more

Defense helps No. 4 Lady Vols outlast Albany

After blowing out Central Arkansas 102-47 in its season opener, the Lady Vols have won their past four games by a combined total of 20 points.“It’s better to work through these things now than in April,” said Tennessee guard Diamond DeShields, who had 11 points. “We’re definitely getting better. I do feel we got better tonight. Albany did a great job defending us, but that’s what we need. They helped us get better.”The Lady Vols actually should be happy if they’re still working through these things in April; that’s when the Final Four takes place. But they should get an immediate indication of whether these early tests have helped in the short term. Tennessee hosts No. 8 Texas on Sunday.“We’ve got to come in and come ready to play,” Tennessee guard Jordan Reynolds said. “We can’t continue to play like we’ve been playing.”Shereesha Richards had 19 points and 10 rebounds to lead Albany (4-1). Imani Tate added 15 points and Erin Coughlin scored 12.Albany had the ball with a chance to tie in the final minute, but Richards missed a leaner from about 10 feet away with 17.2 seconds left. Richards then fouled Bashaara Graves, who made two free throws to give Tennessee a four-point cushion.After Albany missed two 3-pointers on its next possession and committed a technical foul, Tennessee sank four free throws with 1.3 seconds left to account for the final margin.“Every time the game got close, we were like, ‘Yeah, we need a stop,’ and we went and got it,” DeShields said. “But that’s what we have to do all game.”Even before that missed shot by Richards, Albany failed to convert on three earlier possessions in which it trailed by two with less than four minutes left. In one of those possessions, an offensive foul on Tate nullified what would have been a tying basket.Albany coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson called herself a “proud coach” after the game and credited her team for staying calm in a road environment. Albany’s zone defense also did a nice job of neutralizing Tennessee’s height advantage. Graves, who was averaging 16.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game, had just nine points and seven rebounds Friday.“Any time No. 12 (Graves) or No. 21 (Russell) caught the ball, we were going to double them and make them prove themselves,” Abrahamson-Henderson said.

COLUMBIA – Ellis Johnson and Lorenzo Ward will match wits Saturday night when No. 5-ranked Auburn hosts South Carolina.But for Johnson, defensive coordinator for the Tigers, and Ward, who holds the same title for the Gamecocks, a long and close friendship will not be affected.“It goes back a long way,” Johnson said of his relationship with Ward. “He was a senior at Alabama when we came in with (former Crimson Tide) coach (Gene) Stallings in 1990.“He was a good football player, captained our special teams. He had a pro ball training camp, then ended up in high school coaching and came back to Alabama as a graduate assistant.”Although the duo already knew and liked each other, that was when the relationship was cemented.“It was the same year I had Hodgkin’s disease and was going through chemotherapy and radiation,” Johnson said. “He was actually going to be Bill Oliver’s graduate assistant in the secondary, but we shifted him over to help me.”“As he the season wore on, I missed practice and he took the outside backers for me. We had a great working relationship, but we also have a deep and valuable friendship.”Ward said he learned a lot that season, getting an opportunity many young coaches would have had to wait years to receive.“I coached the linebackers because Coach Johnson wasn’t able to be out there every day because he was pretty weak because of the treatment,” Ward said. “We used to meet for lunch every day at the Sheraton, the Capstone, there in the middle of campus. I felt very lucky to be working under him. We became pretty close during that time.”Although the coaches went in different directions for a few years, their paths continued to cross before they reunited in Columbia.“I remember later on (Virginia Tech coach) Frank Beamer, who I played for, was getting ready to hire a secondary coach,” said Johnson. “He called and said, ‘Charlie Harbison (current Auburn co-defensive coordinator) or Lorenzo Ward?’ Whammy (Ward) was at Chattanooga and I said, ‘Well, I don’t want you to hire either one of them but, if you hire Charlie, I’m going to get Whammy. If you hire Whammy, I’m keeping Charlie.”Beamer hired Ward as secondary coach in 1999. He later went to Arkansas before rejoining Johnson at USC in 2009.Johnson was so intent on making Ward a member of the Gamecocks’ staff that he allowed him to take the title of defensive coordinator.“It was all because of him,” Ward said of his arrival in Columbia. “He’s the reason I’m here. He has been a really good friend to me.”Johnson left USC after the 2011 season to become head coach at Southern Miss and then moved to Auburn in 2013. The two have not talked this season, although Ward says they do exchange text messages.The last time they were together was a fun occasion, however.“We saw each other at Stephon Gilmore’s wedding this summer,” said Johnson, referring to the former USC defensive back. “We had a real fun time with some of the guys we coached together. It looked like an NFL All-Rookie team standing at the wedding party. I think we both kind of wished we had those players.“(Jadeveon) Clowney, Gilmore, D.J. Swearinger – all those guys standing up there.”Johnson hasn’t spent much time watching the USC defense, but he understands the problem with which Ward is struggling. South Carolina is ranked No. 12 among the 14 SEC teams and No. 80 among the 125 Football Bowl Subdivision teams in total defense, allowing an average of 421.3 yards per game.“There are just so many young faces in there,” Johnson said of the Gamecocks. “This is not a league where you can play a bunch of young players, especially some of the offenses they have had to defend. …When you have a frustrating situation with young players, it’s very difficult. It’s hard to improve when you get to midseason.”Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

From Spain: Chelsea expected to trigger Oblak’s €100m release clause in…

first_imgWith Thibaut Courtois trying to force a move to Spain, with Real Madrid the most likely destination, Chelsea have been looking around Europe for a new goalkeeper. Reports in Italy, as recently as Monday morning, have claimed Maurizio Sarri would like to have a reunion with Pepe Reina, who only joined Milan this summer, but Mundo Deportivo seem to think the Blues have other idea.In an exclusive on Monday afternoon, the Catalan newspaper claim that barring an ‘unexpected U-turn’, Chelsea will pay Jan Oblak’s €100m release clause, and will most likely do so in the next 24 hours.Explaining that after trying for Alisson and Reina, Roman Abramovich has chosen to spend €100m on Oblak, doing so now before Thursday’s transfer deadline day for English clubs.Embed from Getty ImagesOf course, Chelsea paying the release clause doesn’t necessarily mean the Slovenia international will move, as he has the final say in the matter despite Atlético Madrid not having much of a say down their end.We’ll have to wait and see if the Blues actually do make this move, which would undoubtedly be welcome by the Stamford Bridge faithful.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Rupp to host women’s regionals ’16-18

first_imgRupp Arena was selected Thursday as a regional site for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament for three straight years from 2016 to ’18, meaning the University of Kentucky could have the opportunity to play every game of those tournaments before the Final Four in Lexington.The NCAA chose neutral sites for the regional rounds, and because the UK women play fewer than three games per season at Rupp Arena, the building qualifies as a neutral site.The first and second rounds of the tournament this season and presumably in the foreseeable future will be held at the home courts of the top 16 overall seeds in the 64-team field, so the Wilcats, with strong seasons, could be positioned to host those rounds as well at Memorial Coliseum, their regular home court.“It’s great for us if we take care of business, we would be able to possibly have our path to the Final Four without ever leaving Lexington,” UK spokeswoman Susan Lax said. “… It would be amazing. There really is no other word.”UK drew an announced crowd of 22,075 to Rupp Arena on Monday night for a victory over Baylor – the only women’s game that will be played there this season.RELATED: List of all 2016-18 women’s regional sites“The electricity of the Big Blue Nation and having a home-court advantage is huge,” Lax said. “We know that if we play at home in Lexington, we’ll have a great crowd. It’s a motivating thing (to earn a good seed).”It’ll be Rupp Arena’s first time hosting NCAA women’s games since the 1986 Final Four, which was won by Texas.“It’s exciting for us and the city of Lexington,” Lax said. “We know it’ll be a great site for women’s basketball.”The University of Louisville and the KFC Yum! Center didn’t bid to host a women’s regional from 2016 to ’18 because the school chose instead to bid on a men’s regional, which it was awarded for 2016, U of L assistant athletic director Josh Heird said. Because the Yum! Center is the U of L women’s regular home court – unlike the UK women with Rupp Arena – the Cardinals could not have played there during the regional rounds.U of L and the Yum! Center hosted a regional last season, when home sites were allowed to host.It’s well within reason that the U of L women could end up placed in the Lexington regional in the upcoming years, and Heird said the Cards, who have enjoyed big pro-U of L men’s crowds at Rupp in recent NCAA Tournaments, would likely welcome the chance.“I think whenever we see that Lexington has put a bid in to host something, or they see that we put a bid in, we’re both excited,” he said.The dates for the future women’s regionals are March 25-28, 2016; March 24-27, 2017; and March 25-28, 2018.UK and Rupp also bid on hosting neutral-site men’s NCAA games in 2016, 17 and ’18, Lax said, but didn’t land any.Steve Jones can be reached at (502) 582-7176 and followed on Twitter at @SteveJones_CJ.last_img read more

Excitement over Bundy painful reminder of Orioles’ underwhelming “cavalry”

first_imgWith the Orioles beginning preparations in Sarasota ahead of their 20th anniversary at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, much of the buzz in camp has surrounded a young pitcher born seven months after the baseball cathedral first opened in downtown Baltimore.Yes, let that marinate for a moment or two.After being selected as the fourth overall pick of last June’s amateur draft, 19-year-old Dylan Bundy has drawn rave reviews from observers and teammates alike while displaying a plus-fastball in the mid to upper 90s and three other pitches that already have hitters shaking their heads during live batting practice, according to reports from Florida. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound right-hander will presumably begin his minor league career at Single-A Delmarva this season, but his track to the big leagues has the potential to be much shorter than the typical pitcher fresh out of high school.“That kid Bundy is gonna be special….if he wants to,” center fielder Adam Jones said on his official Twitter account on Monday.Never one to mince words, Jones tells it like he sees it.Of course, before anyone proclaims him the future ace of the staff, Bundy has yet to throw a professional pitch — even if he appears to have more upside than any Baltimore pitching prospect in recent memory. Given their failed history in cultivating young hurlers over the years, the Orioles would be well served to protect their best pitching prospect in bubble wrap after the gushing about his potential since last June.But the hype surrounding Bundy isn’t all that different than the anticipation for the famed “cavalry” of a couple years ago when then-manager Dave Trembley and many others were touting the potential of Brian Matusz, Jake Arrieta, Chris Tillman, and several others and how it would lead the Orioles from the abyss of losing season after losing season. It gave fans hope at the time, but the results have been mixed at best and generally regarded as disappointing when looking back at all the excitement.Matusz? A disastrous 2011 season that included a 1-9 record and a 10.69 earned run average has made nearly everyone question the former first-round pick’s health, dedication to the game, and mental toughness.Arrieta? He had been the steadiest of the original “Big Three” before elbow surgery cut his 2011 campaign short, but the tough right-hander still doesn’t show enough command to project as much better than a middle-of-the-rotation starter.Tillman? The tall righty has never shown more than brief flashes of the ability the Orioles saw in him when acquiring him as part of the return for the Erik Bedard trade over four years ago. His future appears to be in the bullpen.The most promising arrival of the crop, left-hander Zach Britton shows great upside after a solid rookie season, but a shoulder strain has caused fans to take pause in the early stages of spring training.After a disappointing offseason void of any significant moves and the trade of veteran mainstay Jeremy Guthrie to the Colorado Rockies, the continued development of the young pitching will be even more critical in not only determining how the Orioles fare in 2012 but will also go a long way in deciding where the organization goes from here. With the current core of position players not getting any younger, the failure of Matusz, Britton, and Arrieta to take significant steps forward could entice executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette to begin selling off key pieces such as Jones and right fielder Nick Markakis to essentially begin the rebuilding process again.And for a fan base devoid of a winning product since 1997, that’s a sobering proposition.For Matusz (52 career starts) and Arrieta (40 career starts), the time is now to begin showing significant signs of maturity to prove the organization can pencil each into the rotation every fifth day without having to think twice. Britton needs to build upon his 4.61 ERA in 2011 and show why many scouts project him as a potential No. 2 starter in a major league rotation. If the trio makes major strides in 2012, it might be enough to push ownership to spend more aggressively at the big-league level while continuing to build the farm system behind the scenes next offseason.Of course, manager Buck Showalter has issued the challenge for all starting candidates to be ready to perform in spring training as he tries to piece together a starting rotation. The Orioles skipper has said the days of young pitchers holding a spot by default are over, which means some combination of Matusz, Arrieta, and Britton could wind up at Triple-A Norfolk to begin the season while short-term options such as Jason Hammel and Dana Eveland fill rotation spots. Frankly, it’s an even more deflating scenario than the continued struggles of the young pitchers at the big-league level.If those goals don’t come to fruition, the Orioles may be back to square one — admittedly, not a very long fall — as fans will hopelessly look ahead to the likes of Bundy and top infield prospects Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop to lead the club back to respectability.It will be no different than two years ago.Or six years ago.Or nine years ago.Waiting on exciting potential, but wondering if it will ever become reality.It’s a mantra Orioles fans are all too familiar with.last_img read more
