Diouf brace ups pressure on Irvine

September 20, 2020 | uhjupwev | No Comments

Press Association Diouf slotted home in the 51st minute before a lucky deflection off the Senegal forward from Marko Arnautovic’s shot 15 minutes later took the ball past Ben Foster once again. West Brom had put in a creditable away performance up to that point without being able to convert it into goals, and came agonisingly close to scoring between Diouf’s two efforts as Gareth McAuley hit the post. But the simple fact was that the Baggies had suffered a seventh loss in nine Barclays Premier League matches, and Irvine’s fears about his job will only have deepened. Albion are now 16th, just a point clear of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone, and at the end of a fairly wretched 2014 the club may well be ready for a change at the helm once again. Things look far rosier for Stoke, who are up to 10th having registered back-to-back league wins for the first time this season. Albion’s record signing Brown Ideye was preferred to Saido Berahino in the starting line-up and was presented with an opportunity in the opening few seconds as he latched onto a ball over the top, but the Nigeria international sent his effort off-target. Glenn Whelan felt he could have had a penalty after he was challenged by Craig Gardner, and he then brought a save out of Foster with a header that appeared to be going wide anyway. Foster’s opposite number Asmir Begovic comfortably dealt with a Stephane Sessegnon attempt before the ball ricocheted to Bojan Krkic on the edge of the Albion box and the Spaniard lashed a shot just wide. A West Brom break saw another chance come Ideye’s way in the 18th minute but Begovic denied him with his legs and both sides continued to show a lack of cutting edge. James Morrison’s shot was caught by Begovic, Ideye tumbled in the area but play continued and Whelan saw a volley go behind off the head of Joleon Lescott. Baggies skipper Chris Brunt unleashed a swerving strike in the 36th minute that went close but wide, before Sessegnon tried his luck with less accuracy. Whelan got a long-range effort on target towards the end of the half that Foster claimed and Stoke were then relieved after losing possession in their own half to see Gardner loop a shot wide. It did not take long for the standard of finishing to improve after the interval as Diouf notched his fifth goal of the season. Bojan lofted the ball out wide, Erik Pieters delivered it into the box and Diouf got away from two defenders before slotting in a shot that took a slight deflection off Lescott. The Potters saw two decent chances to extend their advantage go begging in quick succession soon after, both coming from Diouf crosses. The first came to Peter Crouch, who was just unable to finish at the near post as a challenge diverted the ball wide, and it was subsequently Arnautovic unable to capitalise, nodding the delivery wide. Things were looking ominous for West Brom, but – with Berahino having been sent on for Sessegnon – they then almost snatched an equaliser as Begovic parried a Gardner shot and McAuley prodded against the post. Moments later, Stoke had their second goal in somewhat fortunate circumstances, Bojan passing to Arnautovic and his strike taking a deflection off Diouf that deceived Foster. There looked little prospect of West Brom getting back into the match after that and they mustered virtually nothing in terms of posing an attacking threat in the remaining minutes. There were boos from their fans at the final whistle and what appeared to be a barrage of abuse from the away section directed at Irvine as he walked past it and down the tunnel. Alan Irvine’s days as West Brom head coach could be numbered after Mame Biram Diouf’s second-half brace condemned the Baggies to a 2-0 defeat at Stoke. read more

first_imgA government defense contractor working in Maryland is accused of threatening to kill a South Florida member of Congress over a bill she filed which would require that public school children be vaccinated.Court documents filed in federal court identify the member simply as “Congressperson #1.”However, sources report the politician who received the threats is U.S. Representative Frederica Wilson. Her spokeswoman referred questions to Capitol Police.An affidavit states that Darryl Albert Varnum left a phone message for Wilson on June 26 of this year, in which allegedly told the congresswoman to “get the f**k out,” as he believed that she was taking away his rights. The message continued, “I’ll come down to Miami b**ch. I’ll f**k you up. Like Cubans don’t even know.”Nearly 12 minutes after that message, Varnum apparently posted a picture of the American flag and “H.R. 2527 Vaccinate All Children Act of 2019″ on his Facebook timeline. The post read, “Holocaust has begun! I’m done with this bulls***. Time to step up or ship out!”A short time later, another post appeared stating, “All our guns are next, been trying for years!”Varnum works for Sealing Technologies, which has a contract with the Defense Information Systems Agency, according to court documents.The affidavit states he had access to “sensitive information” due to his job.The vaccination bill is currently making its way through Congress.last_img read more

Ponting predicts Australia will struggle in India

September 19, 2020 | uhjupwev | No Comments

first_img(REUTERS) – Australia will struggle on their tour of India where they will play four Tests against the world’s top-ranked side in spin-friendly conditions, former captain Ricky Ponting has predicted.Steve Smith’s men will travel to India next month, having been beaten 4-0 four years ago.They were also whitewashed 3-0 in Sri Lanka last August in similar conditions, prompting Ponting to issue a grim outlook for the team.“I think they’ll struggle,” the 42-year-old, who played 168 Tests for Australia, told Sky Sports Radio. “Every team that goes there struggles.“It’s become harder and harder for visiting teams to go to India. They probably make wickets to suit them more than ever before.”The last time India lost a Test at home was against England at the end of 2012 and Virat Kohli’s side have won their last five series to climb to the top of the Test rankings.South Africa, New Zealand and England have all lost series in India in the last 15 months and Australia’s last success in the country was in 2004 when they won a four-Test series 2-1.“I went there for a lot of tours and we obviously played in some tough conditions,” added Ponting. “But the wickets were good for the first couple of days of the game and then they started to turn.“But now, even looking at what happened in Sri Lanka, whenever the Australian team tours anywhere on the subcontinent you can guarantee the wicket is going to turn, and turn quite a bit, from day one of the game.”Following the 3-0 drubbing in Sri Lanka, Australia’s Test team plunged into a crisis with successive home defeats to South Africa. After a national outcry forced wholesale changes, they recovered by winning the final Test against South Africa in Adelaide before beating Pakistan 3-0.“The challenges are going to be there for the Aussie team,” Ponting said, “Unlike what happened in Sri Lanka, as long as they can find a way to be competitive in the Test series.“Even if we don’t win, I don’t think it’d be that big of a deal.“It’s a real learning curve for our guys now to find a balance between playing the Australian way but (also) adapting that to Indian conditions.”The first Test starts in Pune on February 23 and is followed by matches in Bangalore, Ranchi and Dharamsala.last_img read more

first_imgThe infamous border battle will commence Wednesday evening at the Field House as the Wisconsin women’s volleyball team takes on the No. 14 Minnesota Gophers.The Gophers lead the all-time series 4-3 and won both matchups last season, 3-1 and 3-0.Both teams are coming off weekend losses to Nebraska and remain tied in Big Ten play, as both currently hold 4-4 records. The Gophers had more success against Nebraska than the Badgers, winning the first two sets but eventually losing 3-2. Despite the impressive performance, head coach Pete Waite and the Badgers intend to treat Wednesday like every other match.“We’ll have to be as solid as we can on our side of the net,” Waite said. “We know Minnesota’s a really strong team; they are a top 15 team right now, and they are always one of the top in Big Ten.”A glaring statistic from last season’s meeting with the Gophers was the blocking ratio of Minnesota’s eight to Wisconsin’s one. The Badgers have improved their average from 1.86 blocks per set last season to 2.50 so far in 2011. The Gophers trail the Badgers at 2.10 in that category.“If it is 8-1 this time, it’s going to be tough for us because they are so strong offensively,” Waite said. “We are a bigger team than we were last year and more disciplined on the block, so hopefully we will even those numbers out a little bit more.”Minnesota’s front line of defense limited Wisconsin to a .066 hitting average in the previous matchup. The Gophers shut down the Badgers’ top guns, preventing any Wisconsin player from breaking double digits in kills for the night. Dominique Thompson was the closest with nine kills despite good ball distribution from senior Janelle Gabrielsen, who finished with 27 assists.“We are just going to keep working on different shots,” Gabrielsen said. “They do have a tall team, so maybe not always the same shot so we can still get kills and make their defense keep guessing.”Waite hopes that the new additions of freshmen Ellen Chapman, Courtney Thomas and Crystal Graff will help bring consistency and diversity to Wisconsin’s offense.“We have been much more balanced,” Waite said. “Last year, we would have, sometimes, two players who would have good hitting percentages after a match. Now, sometimes there are five in a very balanced attack, and that’s made us better.”Another staple of Minnesota’s defense comes from its back row anchor, senior libero Jessica Granquist. Granquist had 14 digs against the Badgers last time and averages 4.72 digs per set this season. Aided by her middle blockers, Tori Dixon and Ariana Filho, Granquist is coming off of a match-high 20 digs against Nebraska.“We will hit more towards the setter so they are out of system and we can easily guess where they are going to set,” Gabrielsen said. “It’s hitting shots that [Granquist] won’t be able to dig.”A potential threat from Minnesota’s offensive line is outside hitter Ashley Wittman. Like Granquist, Wittman had an incredible game against Nebraska with 22 kills. Last season, Wittman managed 10 kills against Wisconsin, and so far this year she leads the team with 4.62 kills per set.“I don’t know that [Wittman] is someone you contain,” Waite said. “We’ll do the best we can to serve tough and try to keep them out of their offense a bit. But she’s a powerful hitter with a lot of shots.”Digging out Wittman’s attacks and passing accurately are aspects of the game that the Badgers struggled with during their last encounter with the Gophers. Gabrielsen hopes that she and her team will be more precise from the back row on Wednesday night.“I think that when we pass well, we win games, and so if we can pass the ball on the money every time, I think we’re going to win,” Gabrielsen said.last_img read more
