Pickford apologises for howler against Liverpool

By on January 6, 2020

first_imgPickford apologised for his blunder but gave a different version of events.“The ball spun and as I tried to flick it over, my hand hit the bar,” he said. “I think it is the Everton luck when we come to Anfield.“It’s not something you can learn and train and get better from. It’s just a freak incident. You move on and get better.“There is always a case as a goalkeeper… if you make an error it will lead to a goal. Unfortunately, it has been me today.”It was a harsh end to a derby in which both Pickford and his opposite number Alisson Becker had produced good saves to keep their rivals at bay.Alisson had some consoling words for Pickford at the final whistle and that was appreciated by the Everton man.“I couldn’t hear what he said exactly but it was nice and it showed a bit of respect,” he said. “That football game was played with respect, there was nothing malicious — just a very good game of football.“It’s unfortunate for me but I think it was a good game for everyone on outside to watch.”Pickford is determined not to let the error derail what has been a good year for him, having established himself as England manager Gareth Southgate’s first-choice by performing well at the World Cup.“I don’t sleep well after many games, really, but we have got a game on Wednesday and I will show people what I can do,” he said.“You can’t practise what happened there in training. You just have to get on with it and I will show you my character.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford reacts after his late mistake allowed Liverpool forward Divock Origi to head a late winner at Anfield © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Dec 2 – Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford apologised on Sunday to fans for his blunder that handed Liverpool a 1-0 victory in the Merseyside derby at Anfield but said he is mentally strong enough to bounce back.The England international misjudged a looping, miskicked shot from Virgil Van Dijk, appearing to push the ball upwards before it bounced on top of the bar and into the path of Divock Origi, who had a simple task to head into the open net.last_img read more

ATHLETICS COACH PATSY URGES VOTERS TO PUT THEIR COMMUNITIES ON ELECTION AGENDA

By on December 27, 2019

first_imgIrish athletics coach Patsy McGonagle.LEADING Donegal athletics coach and Ireland manager Patsy McGonagle has today urged voters to put their communities first in the general election.Mr McGonagle spoke out for the need of government to support the countless community and sporting groups who contribute so much to society in Donegal.He warned: “We can’t do it alone.” “Community groups are a positive and necessary part of society,” said the Finn Valley man.“As we enter a period in which politicians are seeking your support can we in the Finn Valley Centre ask you to consider highlighting the community sector and the needs of same.“We as a community sector can’t do it alone. We need help to ensure the policymakers understand and support us.“These are challenging times with significant changes in how organisations are funded indeed how their vital contribution is, and, will be understood. “The varied community groups, sporting, youth, elderly and local grassroots organisations etc. in Donegal are a vibrant, positive and necessary part of the fabric of this society and perform a vital function in communities. Politicians need a timely reminded of this fact.”In a charter for the election the Finn Valley Centres is urging voters to raise awareness in conjunction with The Wheel, (national representative body), to underline to the incoming government the importance of the following;• respect community and voluntary activity as a central part of Irish life;• appoint a minister for community and voluntary activity;• develop a strategy to support the community and voluntary sector;• produce a funding plan (and where appropriate, a commissioning plan) to enable the sector to thrive; and• ensure regulation supports the sector.Added Patsy: We believe that a strong community sector is vital to ensuring that Donegal, as a county can build on the foundations, and work done, by groups at grassroots level, and, that this work should be supported by the incoming government.” ATHLETICS COACH PATSY URGES VOTERS TO PUT THEIR COMMUNITIES ON ELECTION AGENDA was last modified: February 9th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:2016electionpatsy mcgonaglelast_img read more

West Ham rocked by injury blow to star man for Leicester City trip

Chicha replaces the ill Arnautovic. pic.twitter.com/givuyGFNpE— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) October 27, 2018Arnautovic has often played through the pain barrier for his club this season, with a niggling knee injury hampering his performances slightly. The striker was replaced in the starting XI by Javier Hernandez Arnautovic misses out for the visitors center_img The Austrian has four goals and one assist for the Hammers in the Premier League this campaign and is the focal point for their attacks.With new signings Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko on the sidelines as well, the Hammers’ injury crisis seems to be worsening by the week.Winston Reid, Manuel Lanzini, Pedro Obiang, Carlos Sanchez and Andy Carroll are also unavailable for the trip – meaning youngster Grady Diangana gets his first ever Premier League start after impressing in his cameo against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. Marko Arnautovic was left at home by West Ham United for their trip to Leicester City after struggling with illness in midweek.Boss Manuel Pellegrini opted to pick Javier Hernandez up front in his place, although he will surely have hoped to call on his talisman for the trip to the King Power Stadium. Despite this, his absence will still be a huge blow for the Hammers’ chances of getting three points on Saturday evening.Jamie Vardy was missing from the starting XI for the hosts, with Claude Puel preferring to start with Kelechi Iheanacho up front instead.last_img read more

Floods kill 150 in C. America, trigger slides

By on December 25, 2019

first_img “But we’re only going to do all of this if it is absolutely necessary,” Berger said. In El Salvador, President Tony Saca said late Wednesday night that 62 people had been killed, mostly by landslides following days of nonstop rain throughout the country. Nearly 41,000 others fled their homes for 360 shelters set up nationwide. Among those evacuated were residents of Santa Tecla, outside the capital, San Salvador, where a strong earthquake caused a massive landslide in January 2001. Officials have worried that the mountain running alongside the neighborhood might collapse again with heavy rains or another quake. Nine people died in storm-related storms in Nicaragua, including six migrants believed to be Ecuadoreans killed in a boat wreck. Four deaths were reported in Honduras and one in Costa Rica. In the Chiapas city of Tapachula, near Mexico’s border with Guatemala, three people were killed when an overflowing river roared through the city, also carrying homes of wood and metal, civil protection officials said Wednesday. Three other Chiapas residents were confirmed dead, as flooding forced hundreds of evacuations. SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – Heavy rains pounded Central America for a fourth day Wednesday, pushing rivers over their banks, flooding communities and unleashing at least two deadly mudslides as the region’s death toll increased to more than 150 people. Hurricane Stan, which had helped spawn rainstorms in Central America, weakened to a depression over the southern state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, a day after making landfall along Mexico’s gulf coast. But punishing rains continued in parts of Central America and southern Mexico. Heavy rains brought flooding and mudslides to 88 communities in neighboring Guatemala, where officials reported 79 people killed and 49 injured. That tally included a mudslide that buried several homes and claimed 15 lives near the tourist destination of Lake Atitlan, about 60 miles west of the capital, Guatemala City, according to volunteer firefighters. Guatemalan President Oscar Berger called on Congress to declare a national state of emergency, allowing the government to force evacuations of dangerous areas, set prices on emergency supplies and provide federal coordination of relief efforts. President Vicente Fox paid a visit to the area, where heavy rains continued to fall. Later, he said from Mexico City, “we ask families there in Chiapas to first dedicate all of their attention to protecting their lives, their health and family members.” Tapachula was largely cut off from surrounding areas as major highways, roads and bridges were left under water. “Sadly, we know it’s going to keep raining,” Chiapas Gov. Pablo Salazar said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

Half-time: Brentford 2 Blackpool 0

By on December 21, 2019

first_imgTwo goals in three minutes from Jon Toral put Brentford in command at half-time – and they were further boosted when the visitors went down to 10 men just before the break.Brentford looked lively from the start, with Andre Gray prominent, and it took them just 16 minutes to break through.The goal was created by Jonathan Douglas, who slid the ball across for Toral who finished clinically.And the Bees doubled their lead almost immediately, with Toral nodding home at the back post.Struggling Blackpool, who had to make two changes in the first half, did come close to reducing the arrears through Joe Rothwell.But their task was made that bit harder in the closing minutes as Charles Dunne was sent off for a late challenge on Jota.Brentford (4-3-2-1): Button; Odubajo, Dean, Tarkowski, Dallas; Douglas, Diagouraga; Jota, Pritchard, Toral; GraySubs: Bonham, Craig, Saunders, McCormack, Smith, Yennaris, Long.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Video: Durant says Clippers playing loose while Golden State lets focus slip

first_img[vemba-video id=”van/sc/2019/04/25/bang_ac903fa5-bacd-4777-9ec7-5b9b32755cb1″]Warriors forward Kevin Durant says since he arrived in the Bay Area, he’s found that his team has a tendency to relax when they have a big lead.During a postgame briefing, he said that’s what the Los Angeles Clippers are waiting for, and that was part of the reason his team lost momentum in the 129-121 Game 5 loss. He said the Warriors’ missteps opened the door for the Clippers because Los Angeles was playing loose. …last_img read more
