Exclusive – Carragher backs Liverpool to beat Man United to Champions League spot

first_imgLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher has backed his former side to beat Manchester United to a place in next season’s Champions League.Brendan Rodgers’ Reds now sit sixth in the Premier League, two points behind their rivals who sit in fourth position, following a weekend where Louis van Gaal’s side lost to Swansea City and fellow rivals for a Champions League qualification spot, Tottenham, dropped points with a 2-2 draw against West Ham.And Carragher, who previously thought the Merseysiders should focus on qualifying for the competition through winning the Europa League, now reckons, thanks to their excellent recent form, they have a great chance of beating their rivals to a top four spot.“I have said for the last few weeks I didn’t think Liverpool would get into the top four because of their FA Cup and European commitments and I felt Manchester United would,” he told Drivetime.“I don’t know if people are saying Man United are not playing well, they’re out of form or whether that’s just how Manchester United are playing this season under Louis van Gaal.“The fact that they’ve dropped points can happen, they’ve been on a great run, but Liverpool are coming into great form and I think a lot will be decided in the game [between the two sides] at Anfield and I’d have to fancy Liverpool to win that game with the form both teams are in.“Whether the accumulation of games will be a factor for Liverpool, who knows? But that game at Anfield will have a massive bearing on it and I’d have to fancy Liverpool at the moment.”“I’d be surprised if [Brendan Rodgers] goes with a full strength team against Manchester City on Sunday because with that win over Southampton and Manchester United and Spurs dropping points it looks like the top four is really there for Liverpool now.”“Before the weekend it was still a very outside chance and maybe the Europa League was their best chance [of qualifying for the Champions League] but now I think there is more chance of Liverpool getting into the top four than winning the Europa League and it maybe something the manager and the staff assess.”last_img read more

DONEGAL’S HOOPS FANS CELEBRATE AS CELTIC PRESENTED WITH SPL TROPHY IN PARADISE

first_imgCELTIC: CHAMPIONSCELTIC’S legions of Donegal fans are celebrating in style in Glasgow as Neil Lennon’s team were presented with their 38th league title trophy today.More than 5,000 fans from across Ireland made the trip to Paradise and were treated to a Celtic classic with a 4-0 win over St Johnstone.And they heard the Hoops boss say he wants to stay – despite links to Everton in the media. “Everton are a big club with a great history, but so are Celtic,” said the Armagh man.“This club has given me everything, it’s given me my chance in management, it’s given me some of the greatest days of my life and I’ve got a great young team here, which we all want to progress.“I’ve got a great belief in myself. So, if any opportunity came along further down the line, it wouldn’t faze me.“But there’s not many jobs bigger than Celtic and there’s not many jobs under the scrutiny, analysis and opinion of a job like Celtic.” The Hoops stamped their authority on proceedings today from the first kick of the ball and took the lead after just 60 seconds through Joe Ledley.Playing with a purpose and intensity, the hosts doubled their advantage through Anthony Stokes before the break and James Forrest´s swept home number three shortly after the restart.Fraser Wright´s late own goal was the final flourish on a sparkling showing, and ensured there was already a party atmosphere in the stadium before Scott Brown held the silverware aloft after the final whistle.And the manager was pleased that his players had risen to the occasion by turning in a stylish display on the pitch.“It was the most pleasing thing,” he said. “Obviously, it´s a very significant day when you pick the championship trophy up. We put a strong team out in preparation for the cup final and I felt we were fantastic. “There was a flow and energy, and a freshness about the team. It was a very pleasing aspect of the day and then the celebrations afterwards.“The home form since the turn of the year has been as good as I have seen in my time here. We have won 12 out of 12 and the least amount of goals we have scored was three against Hibs. Everything else has been four and there was even a six against Dundee United.“So at home we have been playing some spectacular football. We know we need to tidy up away from home but the league is won now and we can really focus on the finishing the season with a cup final.”There were memorable scenes after the trophy was held aloft by captain Scott Brown, with the players, manager and backroom staff all taking the acclaim of the Celtic faithful during a lap of honour. “These are days you want to cherish and it´s important for the players appreciate what they have done as it goes by very quickly,” said the Hoops boss.“It was just nice to walk around with the trophy. These sorts of moments live with you for a long time. It´s a special feeling. To win your country´s championship over 38 games is an achievement and one that shouldn’t be taken for granted.“It’s better because it’s the next one, as it proves we are not a flash in the pan team. We we have a job to do and a responsibility to keep winning trophies. It´s part of the club´s DNA and do it in a certain way.”DONEGAL’S HOOPS FANS CELEBRATE AS CELTIC PRESENTED WITH SPL TROPHY IN PARADISE was last modified: May 11th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL’S HOOPS FANS CELEBRATE AS CELTIC PRESENTED WITH SPL TROPHY IN PARADISElast_img read more

GAA: KEVIN CASSIDY JOINS DONEGAL BOSTON GFC

first_imgDONEGAL BOSTON GFCFORMER county star Kevin Cassidy has moved to Boston and is now playing football for the city’s GAA team Donegal Boston.Gaoth Dobhair star Cassidy lined up with the exiles at the weekend – which saw them defeating Kerry.He is expected to play with the side in Boston for the rest of the summer Our match report is below:From Rory O’Donnell in BostonKerry 1-5 Donegal 2-8Donegal lined out with two new faces in the team, Des Dolan and Kevin Cassidy, and a rearranged side with a player or two out of his usual position. Considered hot favorites now, there were some raised eyebrows as the northerners struggled to gel and Kerry really had it well within their grasp to pull of a surprise result, but the Kingdom left too many chances behind them and Donegal came away with the win. At the end of the first half it was Kerry who held the lead, by 1-3 to 0-2. It could have been more had Kerry taken their chances. There were at least three scoring chances from frees that would be considered bankers on most occasions, but Kerry squandered them.The game remained scoreless for a long period as Kerry seemed a little tentative and Donegal were working with the rearranged side. Eventually the scores came, the first for Kerry from Donnacha Fenton. Brian White answered right away, and was followed by a Dessie Dolan free. Surely Donegal would start to motor now, but Kerry somehow managed to keep on top. Conor O’Brien leveled after Fenton took a short 45, and then Mark Schutte netted in fine style for Kerry to put the cat among the pigeons. Paul O’Neill pointed to put Kerry in a four point lead at the break.Donegal continued to struggle to get their act together in the second half, but Kerry also continued to kick their chance of a big win away. Two early chances went a-begging for Kerry and time and again the ball was lost due to mishandling. Donegal took the lead with a goal from Fergal Clancy. Kerry turned the ball over in attack, the ball found its way to Garbhan Friel, who played it on to Clancy, and the low shot found the back of the net. Kerry’s strategy was the high ball into Schutte, and it generated a penalty, which Paul O’Neill took and Peter Boyle saved. Another chance gone.With Donegal leading by a point and the forward line misfiring somewhat, Kerry still had plenty of possession and another goal chance. Schutte beat his man, found O’Brien on the edge of the small square but the Dubliner’s shot was blocked on the line. When Donegal had their chance to put the game away at the other end they did. Kerry pushed forward as time wound down, and Donegal broke downfield with an extra man. Kieran McWilliams was foundbehind the last man and the corner forward buried the ball. Donegal added another Dolan point to end up six point winners, but in doing so will consider themselves very lucky that their opponents failed to make the most of their chances.Referee: John Fitzpatrick (New York) Man of the Match: Fergal Clancy (Donegal)Kerry: S.

PAUL DURCAN’S DONEGAL FUTURE IN DOUBT AS HE MOVES ABROAD

first_imgDonegal goalkeeper Paul Durcan has become the first player to leave Rory Gallagher’s panel after he announced he is moving to the middle East to live for the immediate future.Paul DurcanThe former Four Masters man, who has been living in Dublin for the last number of years and transferred to Ballyboden St Enda’s, is moving to Qatar along with his wife, who is taking up a teaching contract.Gallagher, however, has revealed that while Durcan will play no part in the National League, there is a possibility that he could return in time for the 2016 Ulster Championship. “It’s something we have been aware of,” Gallagher told the Belfast Telegraph. “He is going for the foreseeable future but he hasn’t ruled out the possibility that he might be back in time to play next year. He has left that open.“His wife is starting a job out there. Most people only stay for a year and he is not intending to be out there long-term. It’s very much undecided and we haven’t spoken at the end of the year, but he wasn’t ruling out being back in time for the start of next year’s Championship.”With goalkeepers now a much more essential part of modern-day Gaelic football, Donegal will be hurt by the loss of Durcan, an All-Star in 2012 and 2014.His kick-outs have been a major part of Donegal’s possession-based game, with many rating him as highly as Dublin’s Stephen Cluxton in that regard. Working with former Finn Harps goalkeeper James Gallagher in the set-up this year, Durcan’s form showed that the lapse in concentration that gifted a kick-out to Kieran Donaghy and led to a goal for the Kerry man in last year’s All-Ireland final, did not derail his form.Gallagher believes that Durcan is in the running for a third All-Star when the committee make their deliberations in November.“I believe he is playing better than ever,” said Gallagher.“He made a number of strong saves, his kick-outs are top class, he can execute any short balls. His handling is also top class, he didn’t drop one all year.“It depends on how the next couple of games go, but he knows how valuable he is to us and how highly we rate him.” A number of other Donegal players have made comments to the effect that this might have been their last year, such as Eamon McGee and Christy Toye, but Gallagher insists he will be letting players get on with club commitments before making any approaches about the future.The Belleek man added: “There will be no conversations yet. Everybody has an idea where they stand but it will be a month before we talk to anybody. Every player is always sore when the season ends. But we have a good idea with most people.”PAUL DURCAN’S DONEGAL FUTURE IN DOUBT AS HE MOVES ABROAD was last modified: August 11th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Paul Durcanlast_img read more

His brother’s keeper Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards drives to the basket against Hassan Whiteside #21 of the Miami Heat in the second half at Capital One Arena on November 17, 2017 in Washington. Rob Carr/Getty Images/AFPWASHINGTON — Washington Wizards guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks with inflammation in his left knee, the team announced Saturday.Wall, 27, underwent an MRI, coach Scott Brooks revealed Friday following the day’s practice session, which the point guard missed. The four-time All-Star received platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections Saturday in Washington in the hope of reducing the inflammation that has caused discomfort for the past two weeks.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohortcenter_img Dr. Richard D. Parker with the Cleveland Clinic Marymount was consulted about the injury. Parker performed a procedure in May 2016 to remove calcific deposits in Wall’s left patella tendon. Brooks said Wall’s current injury did not appear related to that procedure.Washington is 1-1 this season without Wall, who also missed a game because of a shoulder injury.“I’m fine with John missing two weeks if this is going to make him better,” center Marcin Gortat said Saturday. “Two weeks are not two months. We can cover for him for two weeks and then he’s going to come back stronger, better, healthy and then hopefully we can go from there. That said, he’s our leader.”Backup Tim Frazier replaces Wall in the starting lineup with Tomas Satoransky moving into the rotation. Acquired by Washington from New Orleans during the offseason, Frazier is averaging 3.2 points and 3.9 assists in 16.6 minutes. He has 42 career starts including two this season and 35 with the Pelicans during the 2016-17 campaign.“Next guy has to step up. That’s it,” said Frazier, who had eight assists in each of his two starts this season. “Obviously we can’t be John, an All-Star, our leader, our best player, but we just got to step up and be the best we can and get as many wins as possible.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “We felt like this was the best thing,” Brooks said before the Wizards hosted the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday. “We figure this is the early part of the season, and we’re in no rush. Give him the best chance to come back.”The injury occurred when Wall made knee-to-knee contact with another player during Washington’s Nov. 7 loss to Dallas, according to the team statement. Wall, who averages 20.3 points and 9.2 assists, previously said fluid on his knee built up after he received IV fluids to deal with illness and migraines before the Wizards hosted Atlanta on Nov. 11.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWall sat out Sunday’s 100-91 loss at Toronto, but returned to play his usual starting role in matchups against Milwaukee and Charlotte.
