Alli insists Spurs must not ‘get violins out’ then Jose moans about injuries

first_imgDELE ALLI is adamant this is no time for Tottenham to ‘get their violins out’.After five matches without a win, including an FA Cup exit, with five first-teamers injured, two facing FA charges and a 1-0 deficit going into the away leg with RB Leipzig in the Champions League tonight, Dele told his team not to sulk.3 Dele Alli has urged Spurs to show their steel against RB LeipzigCredit: ReutersThen Jose Mourinho came into the room and started tuning up his Stradivarius.Tottenham’s manager has plenty of reasons to believe the world is against him — not that Mourinho has ever needed much excuse to get into a siege mentality.But when asked to back up Dele’s words about no violins, the mean fiddler of Tottenham Hotspur  Stadium played us a sad tune — and accentuated his side’s weaknesses at both ends of the pitch.Mourinho replied: “It’s based on work ethic, professional ethics, pride and, of course, talent — because  talent is important.“We don’t have what I love to call ‘the box sharks’, the players who smell blood in the box and put the ball in the net.“So even when we’re dominant it is difficult to score lots of goals.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at Ladbrokes“Defensively we feel the pressure and every time we make a mistake it looks like we’re punished.“The boys are not silly. They understand. We don’t hide our  fragilities and problems.“We have to be together to have a fantastic individual performance to make our collective responsibilities very solid. I believe in the boys and I think we can make it.”With £27million new-boy Steven Bergwijn now out for the season — joining Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies on the injury list — Mourinho said he had never previously suffered such ill fortune.The Portuguese also moaned that Davies’ absence left him without a specialist left-back, although he loaned out England left-back Danny Rose to Newcastle.The Spurs boss was then asked whether Lucas Moura could produce another Champions League miracle like the hat-trick he scored against Ajax to rescue a two-goal deficit in last season’s semi-final triumph under Mauricio Pochettino.Yet Mourinho suggested Moura’s heroics would not have been possible if he had not been able to feed off Fernando Llorente, the big Spanish striker who Spurs failed to replace either last summer or in January.3 Jose Mourinho still feels Spurs are going to suffer without a striker leading the lineCredit: PA:Press AssociationAsked whether Moura could do it again, Mourinho asked: “Without  Llorente? So if we want the long balls in the box, we can’t do it that way. We have to try another way.“If we are waiting for the last 15-20 minutes to put the ball in the box and try for second balls, that’s not the way to do it. We don’t hide. Our attacking players are the ones we know. We don’t have others. I do believe Lucas can have an impact.”If that sounded like Mourinho was damning Poch’s finest hour with faint praise, then, yes, that’s our Jose.Spurs’ season could be over this week if they cannot overturn the deficit against Leipzig and are beaten by a resurgent Manchester United on Sunday, a result which would leave Champions League qualification looking virtually impossible.Tonight is the sort of night when a special manager pulls out a special result, with the odds stacked against him and the gods failing to smile.Is Mourinho special any more?3There has been precious little  evidence so far in his 4½ months at Spurs — although those injuries,  especially to Kane, mean the jury will remain out until next season.Publically, he rarely exudes positivity — he asked how Leipzig would feel without five of their best players.He admitted “momentum is negative” and while his team were good lads, you do not always get what you deserve.Mourinho claimed he will win silverware with Spurs — but you do not get the impression he thinks it will be this season, with the European Cup the only pot still available.So it was down to Dele to provide some fighting talk.The England midfielder admitted he was wrong to throw down his boots in anger after being substituted during the first-leg defeat.And he was denied the chance to answer a question about his FA charge for a social media post  making fun of the coronavirus.But he said: “It’s not a time to get the violins out. We have to step up and deal with these situations. We have to show our character.“We’re not going to hide. No  one can look at where we are and be happy.Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’“To be where we are now is not something that’s good for us and not something we’re used to.“When things start to become  negative and results aren’t going your way, it can be difficult.“But there’s no point going out there if we don’t believe we’re going to turn this around.”RB Leipzig vs Tottenham FREE – Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and betting odds for Champions League clashlast_img read more

Vanuatu cruise past hockey new chums Tonga

first_imgDespite a spirited display by Tonga, who have not participated in Pacific Games hockey before, Vanuatu ran out comfortable 21-1 winners in the men’s match.Vanuatu captain Hiro Namu gave credit to his opponents despite the one-sided nature of the contest.“The Tongans played tough, but I was pleased with our performance – the boys played well,” Namu said.“The Tongans were not a challenge because this is their first time to play hockey in the Pacific Games. They were not strong but it was good experience and I praise their good sportsmanship.“We are now looking forward to the match against Fiji (at 18:30) as they won this morning with a huge margin, defeating Solomon Islands 22-1.”Before that match at BSP Arena, Papua New Guinea take on Solomon Islands at 17:00.last_img read more

UN: Zika virus will be ‘way down’ before Olympics

first_imgGENEVA (AP):The head of the World Health Organization’s Zika response team is predicting that Brazil will host a “fantastic Olympics”, and that the mosquito-borne virus will be “way down” by the time the Summer Games begin in Rio de Janeiro on August 5.Dr Bruce Aylward, WHO’s executive director for outbreaks and health emergencies, said yesterday at a news conference that the mosquito population is expected to drop off around when Rio hosts the games, since it will be winter in the southern hemisphere.Rio’s Olympic venues are also in a relatively confined area, he noted, making it easier for authorities to control the local mosquito population.”Brazil is going to have a fantastic Olympics and it’s going to be a successful Olympics and the world is going to go there,” Aylward said. “I just wish I was going there, but there’s not going to be a lot of problems there by then, so I’ll be somewhere else.”Aylward also pointed to the “probability” that the Zika virus will have “gone through” a large slice of the country’s population by then, so many Brazilians might have developed an immunity to the disease by the time of the August 5-21 games.Zika, however, is just the latest cloud hanging over Brazil ahead of South America’s first Olympics. The country is coping with its worst recession in 100 years, impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff and a wide-ranging corruption scandal centred on the state-controlled oil-and-gas giant Petrobras.Brazil has recorded more than one million suspected Zika infections in recent months amid strong concerns that the virus could be linked to a spike in the number of babies born with abnormally small heads microcephaly and to a rare neurological syndrome that can cause temporary paralysis in people of all ages.In Brazil yesterday, ministers, state governors, health authorities and members of the armed forces visited schools throughout the country to involve students in the nationwide campaign to eradicate the Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads the Zika virus.WHO has declared a global health emergency due to the virus, saying it could produce as many as 4 million cases in the next year. The mosquitoes that spread Zika which also spread dengue and yellow fever are entrenched across the region and in a wide belt around the globe, mostly in tropical areas.last_img read more

Pomona’s strong season comes to end

first_imgPOMONA – The Pomona High School girls soccer team had already made history going into Tuesday’s CIF-Southern Section Division V second-round playoff match with Cerritos Valley Christian, having won the first playoff game in school and Valle Vista League history on Friday against Montebello. So while the Red Devils’ 3-0 loss to Valley Christian at Ganesha High School wasn’t how they wanted to follow up that victory, it allowed Pomona to take Tuesday’s loss with a grain of salt. “I knew this was going to be a tough game for us,” Pomona coach Robb Stephenson said. “95 percent of (Valley Christian’s) players play club ball, while this is pretty much it for our team. We were going up a level tonight.” Valley Christian (16-8-3) increases a level in the CIF playoffs, playing South Torrance on Thursday in the quarterfinals. The Crusaders came in with experience and height, things Stephenson thought intimidated the Red Devils (19-4-1) at the outset. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set!center_img “We were a little scared of their height and their speed but I thought we did a good job of battling,” Stephenson said. “As the game went on I thought we were becoming more and more comfortable out there.” Unfortunately for the Red Devils, the Crusaders were extremely comfortable hanging out on the Pomona half of the field. The majority of the action took place in Pomona’s end, as Pomona only had two shots in the second half toward goal, both of which went high. “We are an aggressive team and we try to put as much pressure on the opposition as possible,” Valley Christian coach Kim Looney said. “We knew we’d have to be patient but if we continued to attack, the goals would come.” The first Crusader goal came in the 30th minute, as Ashley Haagsma let loose a shot from 25 yards out that went through the hands of Pomona goalkeeper Jeanette Chamorro. Valley Christian added another goal in the 33rd minute, as Sarah McTigue unleashed a well-placed shot into the lower left hand corner of the goal. last_img read more

Exclusive – In-demand Southampton duo NOT FOR SALE, insists Saints chairman

first_imgSouthampton chairman Ralph Krueger has told talkSPORT that in-demand Saints stars Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin will not leave St Mary’s under any circumstances this summer.The Saints are desperate to halt the mass exodus of stars from the club, having already seen captain Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren join Liverpool, England starlet Luke Shaw move to Man United and young right-back Calum Chambers sign for Arsenal.And recent reports suggest Rodriguez and Schneiderlin could be the next to leave, with Tottenham thought to be plotting a double swoop for the pair.Rodriguez has been strongly linked with a reunion with former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Spurs, though Liverpool have also reportedly joined the chase having pulled the plug on their move for Loic Remy.France international Schneiderlin, meanwhile, is a long-term target for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, though the Gunners’ north London rivals are reportedly in pole position to sign the midfielder.But the Saints chief has dismissed the ongoing rumours, insisting the duo are not for sale.“It’s important for everybody to hear that we see Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin as players in the core that [new manager] Ronald Koeman would like to build around at the club,” Krueger told Drivetime.“They will be playing for us this season, they’re definitely not leaving Southampton. I don’t where these stories have come from.”The chairman also offered an explanation to Saints fans over the sale of some of their brightest stars this summer, insisting their exit was for the best interest for the future development of the team.He added: “We did go into this transfer window without any players for sale, but situations have evolved since then.“We looked at every situation individually, we didn’t have any players up for sale but some wanted shortcuts to the Champions League.“We had a strategy in place that if the circumstances came together on our terms and we could get the premium price for a player, we would make the deal. That is what has happened with all the transfers to date this summer.“But we’re at a point now where we are not going to sell Rodriguez or Schneiderlin, we’re in the building process now. We’re in negations and we look forward to adding to the squad and reinvesting these funds.”last_img read more

England team should be made of Leicester and Tottenham players! – Noel Gallagher

first_imgBritish rock hero Noel Gallagher believes Leicester and Tottenham players should make up the core of England’s Euro 2016 team following their high-flying Premier League season.Roy Hodgson is set to reveal which players he will take to the summer’s European Championship finals in a squad announcement on May 12.The Three Lions boss has previously insisted he will not overlook players who helped the side through their unbeaten qualifying campaign, although the emergence of a number of young stars have put the places of some of the regular crop under threat.The likes of Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier plus Leicester striker Jamie Vardy have starred at club level this term and excelled on an international stage in recent games for England.And Gallagher believes Hodgson would disgrace himself if he continues to stick with the old guard despite having a number of exciting prospects at his disposal.“If Harry Kane, Dele Alli and all that mob don’t start that first game, then the manager is in disrepute I’m afraid,” the High Flying Birds frontman told the Sports Bar.“And if Wayne Rooney gets on that pitch it would be a disgrace. If that happens it would just about sum up English football.“For me, you would just pick the best English players from the Leicester squad and the best English players from the Tottenham squad, and all the rest will just make up the numbers.“Between the two teams they’ve lost about five games [it’s actually seven] all season. It’s unbelievable.“Rooney is the captain, so that would cause too much of an uproar if he doesn’t get in the team, but really he shouldn’t get anywhere near it.”Listen to Noel Gallagher on England, his beloved Man City and more in the full audio clip above!last_img read more
