Warnock shown the door by QPR

first_imgAfter a happy start, Fernandes lost faith in Warnock.“Neil has acted with honesty, professionalism and integrity throughout his time at the club, and I would personally like to thank him for his significant contribution to QPR over the last 22 months.“I genuinely wish him all the very best for the future and he will always be welcome back at Loftus Road.”Vice-chairman Amit Bhatia added: “It is with a very heavy heart that we make this announcement.“I played a key role in bringing Neil to Loftus Road and consider him to be a close personal friend and a great professional.“I would like to place on the record my thanks to him for transforming us from a Championship club to a Premier League club. We have gained enormously from Neil’s wisdom, experience and leadership.“He has always performed his managerial duties to the very highest of standards. I wish Neil every success going forward and he will always be welcome at QPR.“I now look forward to the future and the rest of the season as we work towards stabilising our position in the Premier League.”Warnock, who suffered relegation from the top flight with Notts County and Sheffield United, was desperate for another crack at Premier League management before retiring.But poor results weakened his position ahead of the all-important transfer window and gave the board misgivings about allowing him to spend more cash this month.“Obviously I’m very disappointed, but having achieved so much, I leave the club with a great sense of pride,” said Warnock.“I have enjoyed my time here more than anywhere else and the QPR fans have been brilliant with me – they deserve success.“My biggest regret is that the takeover didn’t happen earlier, because that would have given me the opportunity to bring in the targets I’d pinpointed all last summer and probably given us a better chance to succeed in the Premier League.”He added: “The board at QPR are hugely ambitious and I wish them every success for the future.“I’ve been involved in the game a long time and I will be spending the immediate future with my family and friends before deciding my next career move.”Feature: The final hoursFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Neil Warnock has been sacked as QPR manager.

April’s Madness almost here

first_imgThe term “March Madness” has been around for decades. For those of you who have been living under a rock your entire lives and haven’t heard the phrase, it relates to the men’s (and women’s) NCAA college basketball tournament, where millions of money-hungry Americans clutch that invaluable paper bracket while cursing out the backup point guard from Southern Methodist Community College for missing that layup to beat Southeast Oklahoma State in overtime. After the first weekend, however, most people’s brackets have been put through the household paper shredder when your national champion lost to a No. 15 seed by thirty. But, hey, they played tough, right?March Madness can also be related to a college student’s midterm exams, which usually fall right before spring break. Instead of thinking about getting their tan on, students are forced to get their study on, which is a far cry from drinking a piña colada in paradise.Despite basketball, March Madness in Wisconsin can also accurately portray the weather and the emergence of spring. After months of snow, ice and chilling wind, the snow has started to melt, the ice has evaporated and the wind begins to get a little warmer. However, as the old saying goes, “If you don’t like the weather in Wisconsin, wait five minutes.”Now, as March comes to its conclusion, I begin to ponder these two things: Is it still going to snow? And, more importantly, I can’t remember the last time I played a round of golf. Playing golf in the crisp morning air is one of the best recreational and healthiest activities around. For most golfers, the season ended in early November, which means those new Titleist clubs with the super flex shafts have been collecting dust in the basement for more than four months. Every time it seems like you can rush out and practice chipping in the front yard, the Wisconsin weather gods quickly dump three feet of snow and ice in your yard, telling you that it’s time to go back to your studies because it’s not time to lace up those leather golf shoes just yet.Sure, there are other sporting events to pass the time. The Wisconsin softball team overcame a six-run deficit in the bottom of the sixth inning to shock Loyola Tuesday, and the women’s basketball team advanced to the WNIT Final Four for the first time in seven years. But since you can’t steal second base like Sam Polito, and Rae Lin D’Alie can break your ankles with a sly crossover, you’re forced to watch from the sidelines. With golf, you can go out there and play like Tiger Woods and win a major championship. But for most of us, scoring a Jean Van de Velde-like triple bogey is about the best you can hope for.Along with the golfers, the winter is just as harsh on the caddies. For most caddies, myself included, caddying is the major means of income over the year. Without golf, we slowly watch our bank accounts whittle away while our debts increase. I don’t know about the caddies living the dream in the Evans Scholar house, but I have (in order of importance) Wisconsin football tickets, poker losses and, oh yeah, tuition fees to pay for. You might say, ‘Well Benjamin, why don’t you get another job over the winter to pay your bills?’ My response can be simply put as, “If you take my finite mathematics exam, I’ll be happy to search for employment opportunities to pay the bills.”Over the winter months, diehard golfers try to maintain focus on work and business, but often find themselves daydreaming about just how much fun this season is going to be compared to last. It’s a fact, and it’s the true meaning of March Madness.Why do we do it, putting ourselves through the madness over a simple game? The simple conclusion is that golf is the ultimate sport for all ages and sexes (the debate on whether golf is a sport or not will be left for another time). Golf is the type of game that takes very little skill, but good weather to thoroughly enjoy. With April comes that glimmer of hope that the crummy weather should be gone for good and that golf season can begin. It’s just a matter of time until the links are crowded once again, and that lovely beverage cart girl makes her way around to quench my Gatorade thirst for another year. Name one other sport that has all that. After five months of miserable weather, April Madness can finally erupt, as golfers can no longer be contained inside as they dive deep into their closets, looking for their plaid pants and polo shirts. As for me, I think it’s almost that time to strap on the caddie vest for another year, because, lets be honest, I really need the money.Spring is in the air, folks. Let the April Madness — the real month of insanity — finally begin.Benjamin is a senior majoring in Journalism and Bracketology, although he’s choosing to take advantage of the weather and hit the links instead of the Final Four.

Badgers carry momentum to Chicago

first_imgIn what is a very young season, the Wisconsin men’s soccer team has played in a way best compared to a passage from Ben Barry in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days: “They’ve been up, they’ve been down, they’ve been here, they’ve been there, they’ve been a frickin’ one team circus.”While Matthew McConaughey probably knows little about Wisconsin soccer, the quote he yells to Kate Hudson fits the Badgers season like no other line could.The Badgers started the season with a remarkable victory on the road at Memphis, scoring four goals in the final 14 minutes to top the Tigers by a single goal. They then proceeded to go 0-2-1 in their next three games, including a 3-1 loss to Florida International in front of a vocal McClimon Complex crowd in their home opener. But that weekend wasn’t over, and Wisconsin rallied its spirits to a 1-1 draw against No. 13 Georgetown.And all of this in just five games. Time is on the side of the Badgers. With plenty of season remaining, a strong showing this weekend at the Illinois-Chicago Soccer Classic would do wonders in jumpstarting their momentum.Wisconsin will start the weekend Friday night with a matchup against the Western Illinois Leatherbacks – a team coming off a 3-0 drubbing to No. 20 Marquette. The Leathernecks (2-3) own victories over DePaul and Valparaiso, however, and will be no pushover for the Badgers.Western Illinois is no stranger to Wisconsin, as Friday’s match is its fifth meeting with the Badgers in seven years. The past four bouts between these two teams have all ended with 1-0 scores, with the Badgers triumphing in three of the four affairs.Their shared history is one thing head coach John Trask indicates as a reason for their Friday game to be a battle.“Western Illinois is a well-coached team, with Doc [Eric] Johnson and his staff,” Trask said. “We’ve had some great battles with them over the last couple years. We expect they are going to come out firing and play well above whatever their record may be.”Regardless of how well the Leathernecks play, the Badgers are more concerned with how they will perform. After the disappointing home-opening loss to FIU, Trask elected to use a four-back defensive strategy, and it worked against the nationally-ranked Hoyas.Wisconsin took control with an early goal and relinquished just one in its double overtime effort. The Badgers now plan to use that showing against the Hoyas as momentum heading into the weekend and toward the impending Big Ten schedule.“Our game against Georgetown – obviously it wasn’t a win – but in a large sense, it was a success for us,” freshman goalkeeper Chase Rau said. “It made us realize the true potential we have as a team.”A win Friday will keep the momentum going into Sunday’s game against IUPUI. Their official name – Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis – may seem lengthy, but their season likely has felt even longer.Thus far, the Jaguars are just 2-5 and are eager to add to their win column. With a newly-defined Badger defense gaining speed, the Sunday match may be a defensive battle.Last weekend, IUPUI shut out Northern Kentucky 1-0 behind seven saves from freshman goaltender Eduardo Cortes. Cortes was later named Defensive Player of the Week for the Summit League. If Cortes is on his game, the sometimes-stagnant Badger offense may meet its match.However, Cortes himself may meet his own match standing in the opposite goal. In his first semester on campus, Rau has seized the starting goalie position and run away with it. Although the victories have not been turning his way, Rau is right on pace with his coach’s expectations.“He’s been pretty solid for us,” Trask noted. “We think a lot of the issues have been in front of him.”With an additional defender on the field, the Badgers’ defense should be in its most bolstered state this weekend, making things easier on the young goalie. It should also help draw attention away from a group that has already surrendered 11 goals.Although two opponents linger on the weekend schedule, Wisconsin is focusing on the things it needs to do to get ready for its conference schedule, which begins next Friday against Penn State. The short list includes staying motivated and playing solid defense.“We’re definitely going in more worried about ourselves [than our opponents],” sophomore defender AJ Cochran said. “We are going to play the game that we know how to play, play with confidence and hopefully things will just fall into place from there.”Without a headliner opponent like Georgetown in the UIC tournament, the Badgers’ confidence is on the rise. For players, returning to Madison with any more losses seems out of the question.“I definitely think the expectation is to go 2-0,” Cochran said. “We’re going to go into both games well-prepared and well- coached. … If we don’t come out 2-0, it will probably be a little bit of a disappointment.”last_img read more

first_imgSwedish coach Sven-Goran Eriksson openly told the media that his agent offered him the option to take over the bench of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) national football team.He said that BiH has good and quality players, but nothing specifically is agreed with the Football Association of BiH (in Bosnian: NSBiH).“I have never talked to people from the NSBiH, but my agent called me and offered me a job at that team. I know they have a really good team and a lot of players playing in good clubs, among others, in Italy and the Bundesliga. Still, I did not overthink too much because there was nothing concrete about it, “ Eriksson said.After that he said that BiH has a good national team and training ‘Dragons’ would be a very interesting task.“I know that BiH has an excellent team. In the final round they have not got the placement at the World Cup, and considering the players they have, it would be an interesting task. However, it is difficult to talk about it because there is still nothing to talk about, “ he said.In his rich club career, Eriksson led: Degerfors, Gothenburg, Roma, Benfica, Fiorentina, Sampdoria, Lazio, Manchester City, Leicester, Guangzhou, Shanghai and had his last job in Shenzhen. As far as national team career is concerned, he has been the selector of England, Mexico and the Ivory Coast so far.(Source:, photo skysports)last_img read more

White House advisor airs concerns about rising COVID-19 rate in Iowa

first_imgWASHINGTON — A key advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force says Iowa is among a group of states where mitigation efforts should increase.Dr. Deborah Birx says the concern is rising infection rates among 20 and 30 year olds in Iowa — coupled with the fact between five and 10 percent of those being tested in Iowa are found to have the virus. She says if officials wait for hospitalizations to spike, it is in her estimation “really way too late.” Birx made her comments during a conference call with governors.Vice President Mike Pence, who was also on the call, says shut downs aren’t the answer, but Pence said studies show things like the use of face masks, limited social gatherings and bar closures are slowing the spread in the same way sheltering in place did this spring.last_img read more

Blueberry Hill residents slam RDC for deplorable drainage

first_imgResidents of Blueberry Hill, Wismar, Linden, who recently protested against substandard work on one of the community’s mainA drain in the community filled with sandthoroughfares, have also slammed the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) for the deplorable condition of several drains.In many instances, this newspaper observed that the drains, which residents claimed were not properly constructed, contained stagnant water or overgrown vegetation. According to community members, the drains have been in a terrible state for years without any intervention from local authorities.While some have pointed to the failure on the part of contractors to carry out such projects effectively, others believe the onus is on the RDC to ensure they are done according to specifications. Speaking on one of the faulty drains, resident Lisa James said those living in the area were now suffering as a result of the defects.“They do a bundle of stupidness. Now the residents living with that drain that they put deh. A set of mosquitoes living in the water. Now you know what they does say? Is we the residents sit down and accept it. Now they got to give we what we need,” she said.FloodingSeveral other residents complained of flooding in their homes and yards during inclement weather, and blamed the poorly constructed drains coupled with the topographic nature of the Blueberry Hill area.According to them, if there are consultations with residents before such projects are carried out, there might be better outcomes. A resident said she was happy recently to see a drain being constructed in her street, but it only made matters worse as her home continued to be flooded, despite the drains being cleared.“If the relevant people can come and meet with the people in the community, that is what we want, because we are affected and only we can say what goes on. If anyone come, we would be able to say well this is what affecting we. If you come and sit with the people, discuss how we’re being affected or tell us what you plan to do, we could probably say to you what could work. They never come and sit with the people. They just coming and do as they feel,” a resident noted.Just last week, residents took to the streets in protest and blocked one of the main thoroughfares on account of what they described as substandard work by contractors. They said they were “fed up of being treated poorly” in terms of community infrastructure. (Utamu Belle)last_img read more
