Gate-crashers Leicester on top of the BPL

first_img EVERTON WIN Romelu Lukaku struck twice in the first half and Ross Barkley added a late third as Everton beat Southampton 3-0 for their first win of the season. Swansea joined Everton on four points after winning 2-0 at home to Newcastle, with Bafetimbi Gomis and Andre Ayew scoring. Newcastle played the second half with 10 men after Daryl Janmaat was sent off in the 41st for two yellow cards. Watford drew 0-0 with West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s other game. Man United won 1-0 at Aston Villa on Friday and are the other team on six points alongside Leicester, ahead of Manchester City’s game against Chelsea and Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal today. Leicester were in the headlines for the wrong reasons during the week, with striker Jamie Vardy fined after he was filmed using racist language towards a Japanese man in a casino. Vardy spoke to Okazaki, who joined Leicester in the off season, about the situation and the pair started together up front. They combined for the 27th-minute opener, with Vardy crossing for Okazaki to score at the second attempt after his initial shot was saved. Mahrez doubled the lead in the 38th. West Ham couldn’t replicate its performance from last weekend, when they beat Arsenal 2-0 away, and their hopes of a comeback ended when goalkeeper Adrian was sent off in injury time for a kick on Vardy. No team has scored more points than Leicester (28) in the Premier League since the start of April, yet Ranieri is remaining grounded. “We want to achieve 40 points to maintain the Premier League (status),” the Italian coach said. “That’s our goal.” The season hasn’t started so well for another team that narrowly avoided the drop last season. Sunderland were booed by their own fans during a 3-1 home defeat to Norwich and have lost both their games, conceding seven goals. “It was even worse than last week,” Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat said. “We have to go back to the basics.” Stoke scored twice in the final 12 minutes through Marko Arnautovic, from the penalty spot, and Mame Biram Diouf to salvage a 2-2 draw at Tottenham, keeping both teams without a win after two rounds. REMAINING GROUNDED MANCHESTER, England (AP): After being relegation candidates for most of last season, Leicester could be spending more time at the other end of the Barclays Premier League table this time around. A 2-1 win at West Ham yesterday gave Leicester a second straight victory to open the season and moved the team to top of the fledgling standings, on goal difference above Manchester United. Japan striker Shinji Okazaki and winger Riyad Mahrez, with his third goal already this season, scored for Leicester in the first half to take their tally to six goals in two games after a 4-2 win over Sunderland. Leicester won seven of their last nine games to escape relegation in their first year back in England’s top division and the good form is continuing under new manager Claudio Ranieri, who replaced Nigel Pearson in the off season.last_img read more

Lack of written contract led to FIFA suspensions

first_imgZURICH (AP):The lack of a written contract and a delay collecting payment led to the 90-day suspensions for Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, a person familiar with the FIFA ethics case told The Associated Press yesterday.Blatter and Platini were handed 90-day bans last week after failing to provide written evidence to justify a payment of two million Swiss francs (about $US2 million) that Platini received from FIFA in 2011 – nine years after the job was completed – according to the person. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorised to speak publicly about the case.Both Blatter, the FIFA president, and Platini, his counterpart at UEFA, face longer bans if the FIFA ethics committee proves its case to ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert. The full verdicts are expected before the 90-day suspensions end.Both deny wrongdoing and are appealing against their suspensions.The ethics case was triggered by Blatter and Platini becoming embroiled in a criminal investigation in Switzerland over the same payment. Blatter was questioned as a suspect, and Platini is being investigated by the Swiss attorney general as something between a witness and a suspect.The payment relates to the time when Platini worked for Blatter as an adviser from 1998 until 2002, when the former France captain joined the FIFA executive committee.Contractually, Platini was to be paid 300,000 Swiss francs per year for his job. He claims an additional 500,000 Swiss francs per year was to be deferred. The Frenchman received 1.05 million Swiss francs for 3 1/2 years of work, the person said, reiterating details first published by The Guardian newspaper yesterday.According to the person, there was only a verbal agreement on the additional 500,000 Swiss francs per year – the amount eventually paid in 2011. Under Swiss law, Platini should have called in the debt within five years.Platini, who was also a FIFA vice-president under Blatter until he was suspended on Thursday, said two weeks ago that he was not paid “the totality of my salary because of FIFA’s financial situation at that time”.ethics committee statementA statement from the ethics committee’s adjudicatory chamber, which is headed by Eckert, said yesterday that it interviewed Platini for more than five hours on October 1. Eckert “did not see a need for a second hearing” before imposing the provisional suspension, the statement added.UEFA has rebuffed requests by the AP to ask Platini to provide a contract that shows FIFA owed him two million Swiss francs. Some soccer nations have also publicly questioned Platini’s limited public explanation.UEFA said last week that Platini feels “he has given satisfactory explanations to the authorities that are dealing with this case”.The provisional ban looks set to derail Platini’s hopes of standing in the FIFA presidential election, which is scheduled for February 26. But the FIFA executive committee could decide to postpone the ballot when it meets on October 20.In a separate case, FIFA suspended Thai soccer association president, Worawi Makudi, for 90 days. Details of the case were not provided yesterday, but Worawi has been under investigation for his conduct during the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding contests.last_img read more

Tony Becca: Rising pressure on cricket’s Big Three

first_img Overall commitment The question was asked by Damian Collins, the Conservative MP for Folkestone and Hythe, who has called on the ECB to answer six questions pertaining to Clarke’s ongoing role and the board’s overall commitment to good governance that he believes the cricketing public deserves to know. The six questions include: “What is the ECB’s vision for how the ICC should be run? Does the ICC feel that Transparency International has been fair in its criticism of the ICC is failing to adhere to recognised governance standards, including increased accountability and transparency? And, if so, as an influential boat at ICC, is the ECB prepared to publicly commit to tackling these problems? “Will the ECB be putting forward Giles Clarke as their nominee for ICC Chairman? And, if so, does the ECB think it is appropriate to be endorsing someone who played such a prominent role in reforms that have been widely condemned as bullying, inequitable, and ignoring the need for those basic governance standards as noted? “Can the ECB give full disclosure as to the terms of Giles Clarke’s presidency of the organisation? And what does Giles Clarke’s duties as president of ECB entail? Are they limited to representing the board at the ICC?” Clarke’s candidacy, however, received a blow earlier this year when it was understood that neither South Africa nor Australia was willing to support his bid to become the ICC chairman, although, at a recent meeting in Dubai, it was agreed that all nominees had to be either a past or present ICC board member. Clarke, who was chairman of the ECB at the time of the ICC takeover, became the ECB president in 2015, and the feeling is that if he takes over as the chairman of the ICC, it would be seen as a “conflict of interest”. That is why MP Collins, who sits on the Department of Culture, Media and Sport’s Select Committee, wants Clarke before the committee to answer the six questions, especially after the move among sporting bodies towards “transparent and accountable governance” and particularly after the Indian court forced Narainswamy Srinivasan to give up his dual role as ICC chairman and BCCI president after he was found to have ownership of IPL franchise, Chennai Super Kings. The committee, it is said by a member of the House of Commons committee, decided to look into the conduct of the ECB in relation to cricket because of the recent scandal in FIFA and because of other investigations it has been doing in football, athletics, and tennis as far as sports governance is concerned. While Clarke’s appearance before the select committee of the House of Commons may come to nought as far as the ‘Big Three’ is concerned, it may be the start of something big. In terms of the British parliament’s influence on cricket in particular, and on sports in general, it may be something probably as big as the impact, not only of 50-over cricket and of 20-over cricket, but also of franchise cricket. Cricket, sports in general, and politics should not mix, not according to the ICC, FIFA, IOC, IAAF, ITF, and many international sporting bodies. In most cases, governments toe the line, especially when it comes to influencing sporting policies and selections. Control everything Following the ICC’s interim chairman Shashank Manohar’s broadsided attack on the cricket coup of 2014, cricket’s unpopular takeover by the ‘Big Three’ of India, England, and Australia is coming under increasing pressure to survive. The coup, which was planned in almost secrecy and which promised the other ICC members, among other things, but more important, better financial returns, took place after a long fight headed by South Africa, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan, who resisted the takeover to the end. The first to come out against it was Manohar, an Indian. Then there was a protest to “change cricket”, organised by Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber outside The Oval on the first morning of the fifth Test between England and Australia, and then there was a film, Death of a Gentleman, named as the Documentary of the Year by the Sports Journalists’ Association in London last week, which was shown in the House of Commons on Monday evening. The fifth and probably most deadly attack on the coup came a week or two ago, and it was an attack bearing far-reaching implications for the official running of the game, and especially so at this time in the West Indies. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has been asked by the British parliament, by a member, to “confirm whether it intends to put forward Giles Clarke, the ECB president, as its nominee for the forthcoming election for the ICC chairman in June, in spite of his prominent role in the ICC structural reforms of 2014 that were widely criticised in last month’s ICC board meeting in Dubai”. Other investigations While most countries go along with this quietly, some countries, like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, do not agree with it and sometimes do their own thing. The feeling is that if they control everything else in the country and pay the bill for things to do with sports, and in some cases, all things to do with sports, they should have a say in all sports. In Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, where the sports minister recently made Kumar Sangakkara a selector of the national team, the governments are involved in almost everything and yet the ICC turns a blind eye. In other countries, like the West Indies, the governments follow almost blindly. They toe the line, regardless. Things, however, may change shortly. The tide appears to be changing. With Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh doing their own thing already, with India joining the action, and with Britain seemingly set to follow, it may be, or will be, only a matter of time before it becomes the norm. The West Indies, and their many separate sovereign governments, are probably looking on longingly, hoping for that day to come, and quickly at that, especially after last week’s rejection by the board of the governments’ plan to scrap it. The present confrontation between the West Indies Cricket Board and the heads of governments may have left the governments, the representatives of the people, coming to the conclusion that they who pay the piper, they who pay the bills, especially at the request of the board, have the right to call the tune, not in cases of selection and such technical matters, but especially when it comes to good governance, or as Keith Mitchell, the prime minister of Grenada, said a few days ago, and accountability.last_img read more

Schäfer upbeat, despite time factor

first_img “I have to watch him (Lawrence) to see if he is fit, or not fit. I can’t watch him and then go talk to him live, which is very, very important. We receive Francis as a left defender as that was our problem at the Gold Cup. Kemar Lawrence was out (in the) third match, and one of the problems is we couldn’t find a second player at the same level. Shaun Francis is very good, but I have only seen him on the TV, so I will have to talk to him,” he commented. However, he believes that in order to get the result we need in Panama, everyone must bond together and fight for the country. “We have to fight together. The players need support not only from me, but from everyone. People tell me they are behind the team, and it’s very good. “But we need 100 per cent tactical discipline on the field, fighting, and luck. We need luck. You cannot win without luck, so we need a bit of luck, but you have to fight for luck,” he noted. “We watch for the best for us – which tactics can win and the players we have to go out and do it. So we can (get result) and I believe in the Jamaica team because if I don’t believe, then who will believe?” he added. Jamaica senior footballers will arrive in Panama next Tuesday for their must-win CONCACAF Group B World Cup qualifier against the hosts on Friday, September 2. The players are scheduled to arrive at various times and Schäfer believes this might limit the time he has to fine-tune preparations. However, he remains confident that they’ll get three points, to keep their World Cup dream alive, going into the final match against Haiti days later. “We arrive in Panama on 30th. It will be difficult travelling from London to Kingston to Miami to Panama. There will be seven and six hours difference, but I hope the players make our training in two days and we can have long practice and meeting with the players and work on team work and team spirit,” said Schäfer. “Not all players will come at the same time. So it will be difficult for training (on the) same day of arriving, we will only train in the gym when the players come from England or Germany. The MLS players will come later. But we are ready for this match, we have a very strong team with good spirit,” he added. Omar Holness, Shaun Francis and Corey Burke have all earned a recall after some time out of the squad. Francis impressed Schäfer and was drafted as a possible replacement for Kemar Lawrence, who is in the squad but still not fully recovered from an injury he picked up in the Gold Cup.

Chanderpaul appreciates JCA’s career recognition

first_imgThe West Indies’ second- highest Test-scoring batsman, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, has expressed delight at being formally recognised by the Jamaica Cricket Association JCA, for his contribution to West Indies cricket. The recognition, which came via a commemorative plaque, as well as tributes from officials of the JCA, was made on Monday following the conclusion of the WICB regional four-day tournament contest between Jamaica Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park. The plaque, which had an image of Chanderpaul enshrined on it, as well as a citation, was presented by JCA president Wilford ‘Billy” Heaven in the presence of the players and officials of both teams. JCA Chief Executive Officer, Courtney Francis, read the citation. ”I am very, very happy about it and very thankful that the JCA has seen it fit to recognise me,” said Chanderpaul, who is second on the list of West Indies leading run-getters behind Brian Lara. ”It really feels special when it is at the back end of your career that people recognise you for the work that you have done, having played cricket in the Caribbean for over 20 years,” he declared. Chanderpaul, 42, who recently negotiated a Kolpak deal to play county cricket in England, played 164 matches for the West Indies, an outstanding average of 51.37, while scoring 11,867 runs. Lara scored 11,953 runs from 131 matches at an average of 52.88. Heaven, who said his association could not have allowed an outstanding player like Chanderpaul, who is likely to have played his final match at Sabina Park to go unrecognised, described the Guyanese as an icon. “Chanderpaul has had a fulfilling and illustrious career, not only for the West Indies, but also for Guyana and the several clubs and counties that he would have played for throughout his career,” stated Heaven. He brought to the game not only his cricketing skill and prowess, but a high level of dedication, commitment and resilience, and throughout has played with such levels of maturity and professionalism. ”These are attributes of a high order, admirable, and what all of our current young cricketers, and others, should look to aspire to.” Thankfullast_img read more
