Kompany ready for run-in

first_imgVincent Kompany believes his extended absence with a calf injury was a legacy of rushing back too quickly from a similar problem last season. The Manchester City skipper was out for virtually two months before making a goalscoring return in Saturday’s 4-0 victory over Newcastle. Kompany revealed he had never quite got back to full fitness last term, when his presence was essential to City’s successful championship quest. “Last season, when we were going towards the title, I didn’t have enough time to do the real rehabilitation,” he said. Press Associationcenter_img “Usually it takes three or four weeks. We took four or five days. Eventually it catches up with you. Now I have taken the right amount of time and I have put in the right amount of work as well. If anything I feel really strong now.” Along with Sergio Aguero, Kompany’s absence has proved to be a handicap City were not able to overcome. Now both men are back, though the only realistic aims are securing second spot and regaining the FA Cup. Yet Kompany is certain City would benefit from a positive final few weeks when they begin the challenge again next term. “I feel there is still a lot to look forward to,” he said. “Whichever way we finish this season might set us up for the next one. “I always remember the way we finished the season before last. We ended on equal points with Chelsea, which was a massive boost, secured a place in the Champions League and also won the FA Cup. The year after that we went on to win the title. The end of one season has an impact on how you start the next one.” In the final analysis, manager Roberto Mancini will cite a lack of goals for his side’s failure to retain the championship won in such thrilling fashion on the last day of last season. With Carlos Tevez netting for the seventh time in eight games against the Magpies and Kompany scoring the first since his winner in last term’s Manchester derby, it is easy to wonder both why City have ended up in this situation and also whether they are only hitting top form because the pressure valve has been turned off. Mancini denies the latter situation is true. “When you play for a strong team like us, you always have pressure,” he said. “You should have pressure. We are in second but we still have to work hard because Tottenham are close and Chelsea are the same.” last_img read more

Neville flattered by Everton link

first_img “It’s just whatever direction the club want to take. But I know there are players who have gone into jobs and failed. “I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. I have prepared for the last five seasons and I have some nice decisions to make. “I have had a lot of experience, studying coaching practices. I have been away with England Under-21s. I’m half-prepared for what I’m going into.” The former England international, 36, took the decision towards the end of the season to leave the club’s playing staff and is preparing for a career in management. He has been strongly linked with the Goodison Park vacancy and is also rated by bookmakers among the leading contenders for the job at Stoke, who parted company with Tony Pulis on Tuesday. “It is flattering to be linked with the Everton job,” Neville told The Times. Departing Everton captain Phil Neville has confirmed his interest in succeeding David Moyes as the club’s manager.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse’s defense plays complete game in 27-24 win over Pittsburgh

first_img Published on October 7, 2017 at 7:12 pm Contact Tomer: | @tomer_langer The recipe for the last two Syracuse losses was the same. A struggling offense that couldn’t stay on the field left the defense to maintain the game.Considering the opponents and game flow, SU’s defense had two good performances in each of the last two weeks — both losses to LSU and N.C. State. Head coach Dino Babers said after each game that he was happy with the unit’s performance.On Saturday, the Orange (3-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) once again failed to get much going in the first half on offense, stuck on just three points for nearly the entire stanza. The defense answered the call, keeping Pittsburgh’s (2-4, 0-2) offense at bay for a majority of the game, forcing five three-and-outs, including four in the first half, in what would eventually be a 27-24 win for SU.“We just wanted to make sure we got them off the field and got our offense the ball as much as possible,” said linebacker Parris Bennett, who finished the game with 14 tackles, the third straight game in which he’s had 12 or more. “We knew three and outs was the fastest way besides turnovers.”The front seven for Syracuse dominated a weak Pittsburgh offensive line throughout the game. The Panthers attempted numerous shovel passes throughout the game, but most were snuffed out by the linebackers. In front of the linebackers, SU’s defensive ends brought good pressure to ensure that the quarterback — whether it was starter Max Browne or backup Ben DiNucci, who came in after Browne got hurt — couldn’t escape.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhere the Syracuse defense really made its mark was on third down. The Panthers only converted on three third downs the whole game, and all of those came in the fourth quarter. The stops weren’t particularly easy ones, either, as there weren’t many situations when Syracuse pinned Pittsburgh back. Of the seven third-down attempts that Pittsburgh had in the first half, only two were more than five yards.“When you come in at halftime and you see the opposing team has not converted a third down,” Babers said, “that’s absolutely amazing.”While Pittsburgh did manage to move the ball from time to time, the Orange largely avoided giving up the big play that has burned it in the past, as the secondary had a strong outing.Early in the game, a Pitt receiver was targeted deep down the field and had a step on SU cornerback Scoop Bradshaw with no safety help over the top. Bradshaw managed to sneak his hand in and break the pass up. On the next play, Bradshaw hit a receiver who was trying to corral the ball near the sideline and forced it to pop out.Offense is what Babers has become known for. After the LSU game, Babers said that SU needed to score more points if it wanted to win the close games it’d been in. The Orange defense knows it needs to give that unit a shot to put up points. It did just that, even if it took longer than expected for those points to come.“I mean, we know this offense just needs any chance they can get. They can get going at any moment,” Bennett said. “I have confidence that we’re going to stop (the opposing team) and get them the ball back every time.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Dodgers’ Justin Turner reaping the benefits of hard work

first_imgThe idea of starting Turner in six consecutive games would have given former Dodgers manager Don Mattingly pause. As a super utility infielder with the Mets, Turner played a combined 180 games over his final two seasons in New York (2012-13).When Rob Segedin started Monday’s game against the Colorado Rockies at third base, it was the first time in a week Turner’s name wasn’t in the starting lineup. Nothing about it seemed normal. Turner has started 22 of the Dodgers’ 26 games this month.“Any player with history, and there’s something they haven’t done before, it exceeds expectations,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.McDaniel and Turner regularly trained six days a week at Dodger Stadium beginning in December. Turner was somewhat limited until January, however, because he was still recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee.The surgery was a built-in excuse for staying at home and taking it easy, but Turner resisted the easy way out. “It’s a pure testament to him, and what he set out to do after the 2014 season,” McDaniel said.That year, his first with the Dodgers, Turner batted .340 in 109 games. Last year he played 126 games, a career high. This year he’s on pace for 151.When Turner’s bat was slow to come around (he was hitting .220 with three home runs on June 3), it obscured the purpose of his off-season regimen: to keep him healthy and productive in September and October.Since June 3, Turner is batting .304 with 21 home runs in 69 games. “Anytime you give Justin a day (off) it’s hard,” Roberts said.Simulated games TuesdayClayton Kershaw, Brandon McCarthy and Brett Anderson will face hitters in simulated games Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, Roberts said. For Kershaw, the sim game follows a 60-pitch bullpen session Friday. It’s the first time he has faced live hitters since re-starting his throwing program as he tries to come back from a mild disc herniation in his lower back. Kershaw was 11-2 with a 1.79 earned-run average when he pitched his last game for the Dodgers in June.The next step for Kershaw could be one of “a couple different scenarios,” Roberts said. One would see him rejoin the Dodgers’ rotation, presumably no earlier than Sunday’s game against the San Diego Padres. There are minor league games scheduled for that day too, at every level of the organization, and Kershaw might see his next game action there.McCarthy (right hip) and Anderson (finger blister) are both on the 15-day disabled list. McCarthy is eligible to be activated at any time, while Anderson can’t rejoin the team before Sept. 5. AlsoAndre Ethier is a possibility to rejoin the Dodgers on Sept. 1, but Roberts said it’s up to the veteran outfielder to determine when he’s ready for major league pitching. Ethier is hitting .400 (4 for 10) in three games with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. … Pitcher Brock Stewart was optioned to Double-A Tulsa to make room for Kenta Maeda on the 25-man roster. The Tulsa Drillers’ season ends Sept. 5, so Stewart will be eligible to rejoin the Dodgers after that day. … Pitcher Alex Wood, on the 60-day disabled list following arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow in June, “is about a week away” from throwing off a mound, Roberts said. The left-hander is targeting a mid-September return as a relief pitcher. … Kershaw, McCarthy and Wood were all in Denver briefly Monday. They joined the team flight to participate in the Dodgers’ annual fantasy football draft, then flew back to Los Angeles. DENVER >> There can be no discussion of Justin Turner’s 2016 season without mentioning luck. Teammate Andre Ethier, for example, was healthy until he fouled a ball off his leg in March. Ethier hasn’t played for the Dodgers since.Turner isn’t naive. At 31 years old, the third baseman recently set a career high for plate appearances in a single season, and can match his career high by playing four more games. Turner was careful Monday to credit the factors out of his control.But as he reflected before a rare game without him in the Dodgers’ starting lineup, Turner was comforted to know that a winter’s worth of hard work is paying dividends. The factors in his control have gone better than imagined, too.“I feel great,” Turner said. “Body feels good. Haven’t had any problems, any setbacks. There’s still time to go, but I think all the off-season stuff with Brandon (McDaniel, the Dodgers’ strength and conditioning coach) has really paid off in the long run, to be able to maintain and feel good throughout the course of the year.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Council member Valentine asks for independent audit; rest of council says no

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The depletion of the City of Wellington utility reserve fund has raised more than a few eyebrows (see story here), and councilman Jim Valentine’s motion for an independent audit may have raised a few more.Jim ValentineOn a night for which he was re-elected for another four years, Valentine during the council correspondence portion of Tuesday’s meeting made a formal motion:“I’ve got a lot of questions from people around town about the so called ‘lost money.’ So I’m going to ask for a motion for an outside audit of all expenses from 2011 to 2014 including 2012 and 2013. We need to to put this thing to bed.”The motion would eventually die from a lack of second. But before doing so, it still made for an interesting six-minute discussion.Wellington council member Vince Wetta asked Wellington City Clerk Shane Shields, if there was lost money, or was this a case of money being transferred from one account to the other.Shields said money transferred out of the utility fund was used for operating services as was outlined in the making of the 2014 budget. There was $600,000 transferred from the reserve fund for general operating expenses in one year. But there was no missing money, he said. “Every year the city has an audit contracted through an independent certified public accounting firm,” Shields said of Kenneth Cooper CPA Accounting Firm.“Well, you answered my question,” Wetta said.Shields said in years past, in order to maintain the mill levy at current status, the council was told reserves would have to be used in order to do so with no real explanation. Those funds were used for general operating expenses going to departments like fire and police.“I think there have been unfair innuendos leveled at the council when we made a conscious decision every year to determine whether or not to raise the mill levy,” said John Brand, Wellington Council member.Valentine then asked why Wellington Financial Advisor John Haas said in a work session a couple of weeks ago that $1.5 million was recorded as a loss, and when asked what happened to those funds, he said, ‘I don’t know.’Shields said it is not his job or responsibility of Haas to know where the money went. His job is to determine the city’s debt ratio coverage and the overall financial health of the city. He determined that the utility reserves fund is being diminished, but it is not up to him to know how that money is spent.Council member Jan Korte said she doesn’t believe there are any missing funds. Council member B.J. Tracy reiterated what Shields said that both the general and utility fund were audited annually and that is paid for by the city. There was no need for an independent audit.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Thank you for your input. +18 Vote up Vote down credence · 279 weeks ago I think what needs to be done going forward is a better explanation by the city as to how our money is being spent. Back approximately 12 – 15 years ago the “utility reserve” had a balance of over $13 million dollars and I think this is what Councilman Valentine is referring to in his request. If the funds were used to offset tax increases then I feel the citizens of Wellington should be told this is what it was used for so rumors or misunderstandings don’t become accusations. We, as the citizens and taxpayers, have a right to know where and how our money is being spent, whether from a “reserve account” or general outlays..

Obviously, a lot of residents are not feeling okay with this amount of missing money and the lack of detail and transparency. The council’s terse responses and not wanting the books opened in a public – or investigative manner – is pretty su****ious. They brought this on themselves, sir.

He calls for transparency but it is not like he is a new Comer to the council. Instead of calling for press conferences an audits how about we figure out as a whole what to do and the most economic way to do it. Also why not give the city manager a chance. He has even been here a year. Some of you are a little quick to judge.. Report Reply 0 replies · active 279 weeks ago +20 Vote up Vote down Reasonable Citizen · 279 weeks ago Tracy, they apparently did not read this one either. Your article clearly states that Mr. Shields advised where the money went, it was transferred to general fund to keep the city from raising the mill levy. The City already pays for an audit. Instead of throwing money for another audit, (which would likely be very expensive), the reasonable council members(and citizens) understand, there is no missing money or misappropriated money. City budgets are published and everything is above board, so get informed, but if you can not read a newscow article, its is doubtful you can read a budget or minutes from a meeting.
