Tedesco’s future in the balance after Schalke’s mauling at City

first_img“I am proud, even now, to be coach of Schalke 04.“Even in these difficult times, I like being here and giving my all.”Schalke’s director of sport Jochen Schneider, who has only been in office for a week, expects to make an announcement about Tedesco’s future on Thursday.“We couldn’t talk about that agenda directly after the game,” said Schneider before Schalke flew back to Germany on Wednesday.“We will use the next few hours to discuss things internally, then we will explain things tomorrow.”After winning the first-leg 3-2 in Gelsenkirchen, City ran riot at the Etihad Stadium with Sergio Aguero netting twice as the 7-0 win clinched a 10-2 aggregate victory in the last 16 tie.The drubbing was the joint-biggest ever win in the knockout stage of the Champions League, but won’t linger long in the memory given Schalke’s total lack of resistence. “I’m extremely disappointed. We fell apart. It was the worst we’ve had here since I was coach,” said Tedesco who took charge at the start of last season.“Of course it hurts. It’s difficult when you lose 7-0 to stand here. The next couple of weeks are going to be difficult.”Last season’s runners-up in the Bundesliga have now leaked 21 goals in losing all of their last five games.Schalke sit 14th in the Bundesliga table, just four points from the relegation places, and Tedesco could be gone even before Saturday’s home match against RB Leipzig.However, the 33-year-old says he will fight until the end.“I definitely believe in it, 100 percent,” said Tedesco when asked if he can still turn Schalke around.“Of course, we aren’t going to give up – if we don’t believe in ourselves, then who will?”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco has ruled out resigning despite Man City mauling © AFP / Paul ELLISBerlin, Germany, Mar 13 – Schalke coach Domenico Tedesco has ruled out resigning despite his side’s 7-0 mauling at Manchester City in the Champions League, but the club’s bosses are now deciding his future.“I haven’t given a second thought to changing anything on my side,” said Tedesco after the biggest European defeat in his club’s history on Tuesday.last_img read more

Writers get help from friends

first_imgBy Raquel Maria Dillon For The Associated Press Jay Leno rolled up to a picket line on his motorcycle with doughnuts for striking writers at NBC. Julia Louis-Dreyfus marched with writers at Warner Bros. in the shadow of a giant billboard advertising her CBS show, “The New Adventures of Old Christine.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Even Democratic presidential candidates weighed in Monday to give writers a little help during the first day of their strike against movie studios and TV networks. Barack Obama said he stands with the writers and urged producers to work with them to end the strike. Hillary Clinton called for a contract that recognizes the contributions writers make to the entertainment industry. Each candidate has received more than $2 million in campaign contributions from the entertainment industry. In Burbank, Louis-Dreyfus wore a cap, sunglasses and Screen Actors Guild T-shirt as she joined strikers chanting, “Hey, hey, pencils down. Hollywood’s a union town.” “How this is resolved will directly affect our union, too,” she said, referring to the actors guild contract that expires next year. In New York, Tina Fey of “30 Rock” joined strikers outside Rockefeller Center, the headquarters of NBC. Ellen DeGeneres wasn’t spotted on the picket lines, but her publicist Kelly Bush said she took the day off in support of the writers on her daytime talk show. Noise and other disruptions caused by a picket line interfered with filming at a location being used for the CBS show “Cane.” About 20 writers chanted, screamed and used a bullhorn outside a cafe near the CBS lot in Studio City, causing the production to move back onto the nearby CBS lot. Tom Hogan, a location manager for the show, said filming began hours before the picketers arrived and involved a script that was finished several weeks ago. “But you know what? I support them,” said Hogan, a member of Teamsters Local 399, which represents truck drivers, casting directors and location managers. Strikers near Universal Studios marched across a freeway bridge and waved signs at passing motorists. Outside the landmark gate of Paramount Pictures on Melrose Avenue, drivers honked their horns in solidarity with writers. Despite the support, the financial reality of a work stoppage loomed large for many striking writers. Michelle Mulroney, 40, and her husband both write feature films. “I’m fortunate. I can strike for a while,” she said. “But most people I know will feel the crunch today.” Zoe Green, 26, certainly will. She sold her first pilot, but the strike is preventing her from writing the script. “This will be very tough for me personally, but I 100 percent support our cause,” said Green, who was on the picket line. “I’m going to be struggling on $6,000 until this ends.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GOP unveils ethics changes

first_imgWASHINGTON – Eager to shake off the shadow of corruption cast by recent lobbying and bribery scandals, Republicans unveiled sweeping ethics changes Tuesday that would limit politicians’ perks and could fundamentally change the tactics special-interest groups use on Capitol Hill. The proposal, spearheaded by Rep. David Dreier, R-Glendora, would ban lawmakers from accepting all corporate-sponsored trips; prohibit all but inconsequential gifts like baseball caps and T-shirts; and force lawmakers convicted of felonies to forfeit their congressional pensions. Dreier said GOP leaders also plan to make former House members wait two years before registering as lobbyists, instead of the current one year; and plan to pass separate legislation the day Congress returns to work Feb. 1 blocking former lawmakers who now work as lobbyists from the House floor and the congressional gymnasium. “I believe that this is a very, very, very exciting opportunity for us,” Dreier said. House Speaker Dennis Hastert noted that ethics concerns raised by the guilty pleas of lobbyist Jack Abramoff and former Rep. Duke Cunningham, R-Calif., involved violations of existing rules. But, he said, “I believe that to regain the trust of the American people that this institution must go further than prosecuting the bad actors.” He and Dreier said they hope to enact a comprehensive package by early March. Hastert said House Republicans also will consider limiting or abolishing “earmarks,” the pork-barrel spending often quietly slipped into laws at the last minute, and vowed to take on tax-exempt political interest groups called 527s that can accept unlimited contributions. “The real key to this issue is, of course, enhanced disclosure, transparency and accountability,” Dreier said. “We are going to place much more of the onus on the lobbying community.” Democrats, who will present their own ethics reform package today, accused Republicans of sidestepping their own responsibility by shifting the blame onto lobbyists. “The very Republican members of Congress who put America up for sale to the highest bidder have neither the ability, nor the credibility, to lead us in a new direction,” said Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., the leading Democrat on the House Rules Committee, which Dreier chairs. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, said many of the Republican reforms make sense, but noted that Hastert would have to approve every taxpayer-funded trip under the proposed reforms. He said Democrats need some assurance that the power will not be wielded with partisanship and suggested members be allow to use a small portion of their budget for travel. “We have to make sure we don’t invest more power in Hastert and call that ethics,” Sherman said. He and other Democrats and political analysts also criticized Republicans for ignoring campaign finance reform. “I think that they’re skirting the main part of the issue, which is the involvement of lobbyists in financing campaigns,” Sherman said. Added Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles, “There’s nothing about campaign finance, and most of the money that’s involved is campaign money, not trips.” He called the proposal to ban lobbyists who once served in the House from the floor and the gym as a “feel-good thing” and said the extension of the waiting period for registering will make the current seamless transition from politicians to influence-peddler more cumbersome, but not impossible. Indeed, asked if he will ban lobbyist spouses of former lawmakers from the House floor or gym, Dreier said he had not thought about that. In the Senate, John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rick Santorum, R-Pa., said they will propose reforms that include bans on private travel and eliminating earmarks. “We’ve reached a tipping point now where the American people are saying `enough,”‘ McCain said. Lobbyists are already banned from paying for trips, but approved interest groups and think tanks can finance travel for speeches, meetings and fact-finding trips. Lawmakers also can now accept only gifts valued at under $50, with a ceiling of $100 from any one individual per year. Under the new rules, gifts worth more than $20 would be off-limits. Said Stern, “These are all steps in the right direction. It’s certainly much better than it was a year ago. Unfortunately, it shows that scandal drives reform.” lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BROLLY – “TIME FOR KERRY TO GET OFF THAT HIGH HORSE”

first_imgJoe Brolly has said that if Tyrone introduced puke football then Kerry are the little girl from “The Exorcist”.Joe Brolly’s war of words with Kerry doesn’t look like ending anytime soon, and he has launched another stinging attack on them in his column with Gaelic Life. Brolly was on the receiving end of some stick from Kieran Donaghy at the end of last week’s All-Ireland final, because of an article he wrote a few months previous saying the production line was dead in Kerry.However, what seems to be irking Brolly is the belief from Kerry supporters or former players such as Pat Spillane that suggest Kerry won last week’s decider against Donegal by sticking to their traditional core principles. However, it was clear they engaged in a blanket defence strategy, which ultimately led to a very poor All-Ireland final with scores at a premium.Brolly has said that if Tyrone introduced puke football then Kerry were the little girl in “The Exorcist” whose head revolves as machine guns the walls with a torrent of vomit.Brolly wrote,  “Gaelic football is now a race to the bottom. The debate about system v more skilful individuals has been emphatically settled.“Jimmy’s monster is already sweeping through club football. “Now that it has the endorsement of the Kingdom, that process will accelerate.“They will celebrate in Kerry, but for the first time ever, no one else will.But no one outside of the county wants any part of Sunday’s joyless, ugly travesty. So, well done Kerry, but you can get off your high horse now.“Maybe it’s only puke football if someone else is playing it.BROLLY – “TIME FOR KERRY TO GET OFF THAT HIGH HORSE” was last modified: September 29th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Defencedonegalgaelic lifeJOE BROLLYKerrynewsSportSystemslast_img read more

FIVE-STAR HARPS BEAT THE SNOW – AND COBH RAMBLERS – TO BAG THREE POINTS!

Rain, hail and even snow poured down on Finn Park.The Donegal side took a deserved lead into half-time after a battling first 45.James Doherty prodded home the goal after Funston saw his shot saved and crossed from the rebound.Carel Tiofack, who had a couple of decent chances in the first half, added Harps second goal just three minutes after re-start after being set up Ruairi Keating. Keating was having a great game and fired in another shot in the 66th minute only to see Ramblers’ keeper Robert Birdsall save.Tiofack however picked up the ball and laid it off for Pat McCann, who had fired over just a couple of minutes earlier, smash the ball into the net, Birdsall’s touch not enough to keep the ball out.And four minutes later McCann added his second – and Harps fourth goal, with Keating again at the centre of things, McCann following up Keating’s saved effort.Keating got the goal he deserved, two minutes from the end to complete the 5-0 victory. FIVE-STAR HARPS BEAT THE SNOW – AND COBH RAMBLERS – TO BAG THREE POINTS! was last modified: March 21st, 2014 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:2014Cobh RamblersDonegal Dailyfinn harpsLeague of IrelandMARCH 21last_img read more

Kings take their turn

first_imgDENVER — A good team captain will do anything to give his guys a boost, not that the Kings’ Mattias Norstrom particularly wants to volunteer for target-practice duty any time soon. The Kings trailed by two goals in the second period when Norstrom took a dangerous and dubious hit from Colorado’s Brad May directly in front of the penalty boxes, and the hit provided the impetus the Kings needed to rally for a 5-4 deficit over the Avalanche before 18,007 at the Pepsi Center. “I don’t know if that was the turning point, but we got a little fire back in our game,” Norstrom said. Craig Conroy provided the biggest spark, as he scored with 59 seconds remaining to break the tie. Conroy, who also had three assists, skated hard to the net and was in position when Alexander Frolov played the puck behind the net and fired a perfect centering pass to Conroy. In the Kings’ estimation, the hockey gods probably owed them one. Exactly two weeks after they blew a four-goal lead in their season opener at Dallas, the Kings trailed 4-1 early in the second period but managed to cut out their mistakes, particularly in net, and rally for their fifth victory in seven games. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I can’t say we deserved to be down 4-1,” Norstrom said. “We deserved to win that game.” The victory drew smiles from most, but more of a sigh of relief from goaltender Mathieu Garon, who is locked into a rotation with Jason LaBarbera as the Kings remain unsure of their long-term plans. Garon endured a dreadful first period, in which he allowed three goals on the first eight shots he faced, but coach Andy Murray stuck with Garon, who saved 12 of 13 shots in the final two periods. “I was happy for Mathieu; that was a big win for him,” Murray said. “We stuck with him and he stuck with us. In my opinion, if we had removed him it would have been an excuse for the rest of the players, and we weren’t about to do that.” Murray’s faith was rewarded, particularly with 1:15 remaining in the second period when Garon stopped a breakaway attempt by Colorado’s Joe Sakic. The Kings tied the game 4-4 just 51 seconds later, when Eric Belanger whipped a cross-ice pass to Sean Avery for a one-time goal. center_img “(Murray) showed some confidence when he left me in,” Garon said. “It would have been easy to pull me out.” Murray’s message, sent by leaving Garon in the game, didn’t escape notice, “He said, ‘Mathieu is going to play the rest of the game and he’s going to shut them down,” and that’s what he did,” Conroy said. “He was able to make some key saves at key times in the game.” KINGS NOTES: Just three days after he suffered a groin strain, Robitaille played Wednesday. Robitaille hasn’t missed a game to injury since the 1999-2000 season. “We taped it and it feels pretty good,” Robitaille said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
