Everton ban fan for comments

first_imgEverton have banned a supporter for allegedly posting homophobic and racist comments about a Malaysian fan on Twitter. The target of the abuse was Ric Wee, who was in the news in February after his plans to see the Toffees play live for the first time in 30 years were undone when the Barclays Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park was postponed. An Everton spokesman said: “The club has contacted a supporter informing them of our decision to ban them from all Everton matches indefinitely after they appeared to have posted homophobic and racist comments linked to the club on the social media site Twitter. “This is a breach of our ticket terms and conditions. “Everton has a zero tolerance policy on racism and homophobia.” The club spokesman confirmed Everton sent a letter on Friday to the Twitter user, who has seven days within which to write back asking for a review of the decision, providing supporting evidence. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Poch thanks Sherwood for Kane input

first_imgMauricio Pochettino is thankful to predecessor Tim Sherwood for setting Harry Kane on a meteoric rise that the Tottenham head coach expects to continue for a long while to come. Press Association It is remarkable to think that it is almost exactly a year since the 21-year-old boy wonder made his first Premier League start. Sherwood threw Kane into the starting line-up against Sunderland and was rewarded with a goal in a 5-1 Spurs triumph. A lot has changed since then, with Sherwood now in charge of Aston Villa and his protege a fully-fledged England international with 29 goals to his name. Kane has kicked on impressively under Pochettino’s guidance, yet the Spurs head coach was coy when asked how the credit should be apportioned ahead of his predecessor’s first return to White Hart Lane. “This is up to you to decide the percentages,” the Spurs head coach said, smiling. “It is not about me. “To be fair, I think all the people that were around him from the beginning had an influence. “It’s not only me, Tim, Chris Ramsey, Les Ferdinand, Daniel Levy or (academy manager) John McDermott, I think it is the parents and the friends as well. “When you play like Harry Kane performs now, a lot of people around help you arrive.” Kane may have arrived at the top level but Pochettino is not expecting him to rest on his laurels. “He is not the finished product,” the Spurs boss said. “He can improve a lot. A lot. “He is very young and, my feeling, my thought, is you can improve always. “When you are 21 or 22, you believe you know it all and can’t improve, but, with time and experience, you see that you can improve every day. “It is not important your age, you can improve always if you’re open to improving.” Pochettino does not expect Kane to get ahead of himself, though, thanks to maturity that belies his years. In fact, so impressed has the Spurs head coach been that he handed the 21-year-old the captain’s armband for last weekend’s 0-0 draw at Burnley. “If I pick the same team, it is Harry Kane again,” Pochettino said of Saturday’s match against Villa. “I think he deserves it when you look at the names on the team sheet. He is one of the players who deserves to be captain. “We have many players that can lead the team, but we can select only one. “When you are mature and you are a leader, it is not about age or experiences. It’s about your personality and character.” last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick helps Portugal beat Switzerland

first_imgPorto: Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to lead Portugal to a 3-1 victory over Switzerland and a berth in the 2018-2019 Nations League final.In Sunday’s first-ever championship match of this new UEFA international tournament, the Portuguese will square off against either the Netherlands or England, reports Efe news.On Wednesday, a high press paid dividends for the home team in the early going at Dragao Stadium when Bernardo Silva stole the ball in the opposing team’s area and delivered an exquisite pass to Ronaldo, although the Juventus superstar failed to beat Swiss net minder Yann Sommer on that occasion.After a pair of missed chances by the Swiss, one on a venomous cross by Xherdan Shaqiri and another on a header by Portuguese-league star Haris Seferovic, Ronaldo opened the scoring for Portugal on a free kick to the bottom right corner in the 24th minute.The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who had not scored for Portugal since last year’s World Cup, had been fouled moments earlier just outside the area by Kevin Mbabu.That score held up until halftime, although Seferovic nearly notched the equaliser shortly before the intermission on a shot that clanked off the crossbar.Shortly after the break, the action heated up when Switzerland clamoured for a penalty at one end of the field and referee Felix Brych awarded one to Portugal moments later at the other end.That decision, however, was reversed after a review by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system, with Brych ruling that Swiss midfielder Steven Zuber had been fouled in the area by defender Nelson Semedo.Meanwhile, the penalty that Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva had won at the other end after being tripped by center back Fabian Schar was waived off.The controversial turn of events on the field did not go down well with the crowd at Dragao Stadium, but it led to the equalizer when Ricardo Rodriguez fired the ball home from the spot past Portuguese net minder Rui Patricio in the 56th minute.Portugal then suffered a fresh setback when Pepe suffered an injury on a hard fall and was replaced by Jose Fonte in the 63rd minute.The first match of the Portuguese-hosted 2019 Nations League Finals appeared headed for extra time, but Ronaldo took over down the stretch.He made the score 2-1 in the 87th minute after receiving a pass from Silva and then gave his team an insurance goal with a curling strike on the counterattack two minutes later.The other berth in the inaugural Nations Cup final at Dragao Stadium will be determined on Thursday when England and the Netherlands face off at Dom Afonso Henriques Stadium in Guimaraes, Portugal.

President appoints Michael Quick as interim provost

first_imgPresident C.L. Max Nikias announced in an email to all students on Friday that Michael Quick, the current executive vice provost and professor of biological sciences, will take over as interim provost and senior vice president for academic affairs beginning Dec. 1.Quick, the second-ranking administrator in the Office of the Provost, will serve as interim provost until a new provost is appointed.“It’s a very nice honor, I appreciate that the president has the faith in me that we are going to continue to do the great work that we do here at USC,” Quick said.Elizabeth Garrett, the current provost, will step down from her role next year to take on a new role as the president of Cornell University on July 1, 2015. Garrett will be on sabbatical from Dec. 1 to June 30 in order to prepare for her new role at Cornell. Garrett was appointed to the provost position in fall 2010 after having served as interim provost for several months.She announced she would be leaving USC on Sept. 30.“Although we will miss her, I am certain she will be an extraordinary president, and that she will build an enduring and consequential legacy in American higher education,” Nikias said in the email announcement.Garrett brought Quick into an administrative role four years ago when he was appointed as executive vice provost under her leadership.Quick said he would continue the work Garrett and Nikias have initiated.“We want to make sure we continue all the things that the president and the current provost, Beth Garrett, have been putting into the place over the last number of years,” he said. “So I look forward to continuing to work on promoting our great faculty and hiring new faculty.”Among these plans are changes to USC’s general education system, which is undergoing a restructuring to make the classes more applicable to students. Quick said he would continue to work on initiatives that he has worked on as executive vice provost.“I’ve been overseeing a lot of the revisions to the general education curriculum, so very excited about those,” he said. “I have been working a lot with various deans on new programs, new online programs that we have at the graduate school level, [and] new programs at the undergraduate level.”He cited the World Bachelor in Business program and the interdisciplinary Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation as examples of such initiatives.Quick said he would be in the position until a new provost was appointed, but did not know when a permanent provost would be named.“All I can say is that I know they’re going to look across the globe,” he said of the search for a new provost.last_img read more

Jakob Phaup’s past shortcomings fuel his pursuit of perfection

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ After Syracuse’s season opener two weeks ago, Jakob Phaup’s old high school coach texted him. “Solid start, great job on GBs, did a real nice job,” Mark Princehorn typed from over 300 miles away.“Thanks coach, could have been better,” Phaup responded. He had gone 15-for-22 against Colgate at the X while picking up a game-high 11 ground balls. But that should’ve been 20-for-22, he said.“He’s the guy who’s never complacent,” Princehorn said. “He’s a kid who’s never satisfied.”Last season, Phaup won 60.6% of his face-offs for the Orange (2-0), helping SU up its team face-off percentage by over 8%. That led to 98 more shots than 2018. Through two games in 2020, that number’s up to 71.9% through two games, ranking fifth in the nation. But Phaup wants to be perfect, not for his benefit but for the rest of Syracuse’s offense.In Phaup’s sophomore year at Souderton Area (Pennsylvania) High School, he won more than 50% of the draws against Harry S. Truman High School. But against a 5-13 team, Phaup was expected to win 90%, if not higher, Princehorn said. Phaup mentioned that game for the rest of high school.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe next year, Phaup’s Souderton team was down by two goals with three minutes left in the game. He went up to their team manager, Kevin, and told him, “Hey, I’m doing this for you.” Phaup won the ensuing face-off and scored a goal to bring it to within one. Then he did it again to tie the game.“I’ll always remember because it’s the confidence, but then telling somebody that he’s going to do it for them,” Princehorn said. “It was on not doing it for himself but doing it for someone else, and then going out and doing it.”Emily Steinberger | Design EditorThroughout high school, Phaup taped his season goals to the inside of his locker. Originally, Phaup wanted to break his high school’s records. Then he wanted all-state recognition. Finally, he wrote Division I college player.During that time, Phaup worked out at the Philly Face-Off League and The Faceoff Academy. Mike Gurenlian at The Faceoff Academy remembered Phaup constantly asking about his technique. When guys win face-offs off hand speed or pure strength, bad habits can form, Gurenlian said. That was never a problem with Phaup.“It’s a borderline obsession with getting that feedback,” Gurenlian said.After his freshman year at SU, Phaup texted Gurenlian about setting up a camp with college players so they could get reps in throughout the summer. At that point, Phaup hadn’t won the starting job at Syracuse and only took 12 face-offs. But last summer, when he went back, he’d become the guy everyone else at The Face-off Academy wanted to challenge.Once he won the starting job from Danny Varello, Phaup led the Atlantic Coast Conference in face-off percentage. But in the first round, the Orange were eliminated by Loyola with Phaup going 9-for-21. Before most of his team had left the field, Phaup texted Princehorn how upset he was. He felt he was to blame for SU’s loss.“The game against Loyola crushed me,” Phaup said. “And I was like, I don’t want to ever have that feeling again.”A week later, Phaup asked his mom, Beth Phaup, to make a chart. It listed all his “bad” games from last season, Phaup said. His 2-for-5 performance against North Carolina in the regular season, when Varello received the majority of the draws. A 9-for-19 outing against the Tar Heels, this time in the ACC tournament. And at the bottom, his 42.8% showing against Loyola when SU’s season came to a halt. The chart now sits on top of his closet facing his bed at home.Phaup plans to keep it up there all season.

Al Ahly clinch African club final

first_imgGedo fired in Al Ahly’s opener from 12 yards shortly before half-time and Walid Soliman doubled their lead just after the hour mark.Esperance’s Yannick N’djeng pulled a goal back to set up a tense finish.Al Ahly had Mohamed Aboutrika’s late penalty saved but held on to become African champions for a seventh time.Hossam Ghaly lifted the trophy to seal a remarkable win amide a domestic season in Egypt that has been postponed indefinitely because of the February stadium riots that left 74 people dead.Al Ahly, who extended their own record for the most African Champions League wins, will represent the continent at the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan next month.Esperance fielded a weakened side because of suspensions and injuries, although Youssef Msakni returned to the team despite having had an operation for appendicitis two weeks ago. The Tunisian side were the more defensive in a first half that produced some flowing football but few goalscoring opportunities.Ahly were rewarded for their purpose when Gedo struck on 43 minutes after good work down the left from Hamdy Al-Sayed, who shook off a defender and cut the ball back from the goal-line.Esperance came into the second half with more urgency, and N’djeng had a shot saved on 53 minutes.Soliman made it 2-0 in the 61st minute, hooking the ball over the head of Esperance defender Mohamed Ben Mansour to leave himself one-on-one with the keeper on the edge of the box before shooting into the bottom-right corner.N’djeng then hit the post, before finally getting his goal with six minutes to go, side-footing in from six yards – but Esperance still needed two more goals if they were to retain their title. Ahly legend Aboutrika had his penalty pushed past the post by Esperance keeper Moez Ben Cherifia, who had fouled Ahly’s Mauritania striker Dominique Da Silva.last_img read more
