Allardyce warning over fan chants

September 21, 2020

first_img “Any such behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by West Ham United. “West Ham United is rightly proud of its world-famous support home and away and will not allow the reputation of the tens of thousands of Hammers fans who follow the club over land and sea to be tarnished by any unacceptable conduct from a small minority.” Both sets of fans will be monitored closely by the Metropolitan Police, which has warned that officers could arrest any fan chanting the word “Yid”. The warning from Scotland Yard has caused consternation among most Tottenham fans. Yid is a term for Jew which is often considered derogatory, but some Spurs fans chant the word, or refer to themselves as “Yiddos” or the “Yid Army”, as an act of defiance towards those who taunt them over their Jewish fan base. Sam Allardyce wants West Ham fans who step out of line at Tottenham to feel the full wrath of the law. West Ham warned their fans that any such behaviour at Spurs – who have a strong link with the Jewish community – would result in a banning order and potential criminal charges. Allardyce echoed that warning on Friday morning, telling a press conference: “The club has made a statement so you will suffer the consequences if you do anything like that. “If they do it, I think that’s very important that they are identified and they suffer the consequences. “We live in this society today so if you’re made aware of what’s acceptable and what’s not you’ve got to be very, very careful about what you choose to chant. If you’re made aware of it and it happens you don’t have any excuse. “My message to the fans would be: support the lads on the field and forget about everything else.” West Ham insist they do not tolerate racist or offensive language from their own fans. And their statement on Friday spelled out the consequences for any fan who does not behave on Sunday. “Any fan found to be acting inappropriately – including racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic behaviour – will be punished to the full extent of the law and banned from attending matches,” the statement read. West Ham travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday for the first time since a small group of the club’s fans shamed themselves by chanting anti-Semitic abuse in November last year. Just four days after a Spurs fan was stabbed in an apparent anti-Semitic attack in Rome, a group of West Ham fans chanted “Viva Lazio” and “Can we stab you every week?” while some hissed, mimicking the gassing of Jews in the Holocaust.

Mills hits back at Lineker jibe

September 21, 2020

first_img The think tank is charged with finding ways to improve the national team and will include FA chairman Greg Dyke, former England manager Glenn Hoddle, plus Football League chairman Greg Clarke and FA vice-chairman Roger Burden. The likes of League Managers’ Association chairman Howard Wilkinson, incoming Professional Footballers’ Association chairman Ritchie Humphreys, Crewe director of football Dario Gradi and former England defender Danny Mills are also confirmed appointments. However, Mills, who played at the 2002 World Cup finals under Sven-Goran Eriksson, feels that would just be a ”quick fix to a long-term problem”. “If you start to do that, you actually detract from encouraging English clubs to go and find young English players,” he said in an interview with talkSPORT. “If you carry on going through where we are, in another 10 or 15 years England will struggle to qualify [for major tournaments] because there won’t be enough players.” The Football Association’s search for the remaining members of its newly formed commission continues on the back of Gary Lineker claiming the majority of those already confirmed are “utterly pointless”. Press Association Sport understands talks are continuing with a number of different people, including those from varied ethnic backgrounds, some of whom may not be able to commit personal time serving on the FA initiative but will be engaged by it. Nevertheless, former England striker Lineker indicated on Friday he believes those appointments which are already in the public domain have been poor choices by Dyke. The Match of the Day presenter said on Twitter: “No wonder they announced Glenn Hoddle early on @FA commission. Most of the others are utterly pointless. Expected better from Greg Dyke.” Those comments were met by an angry response from commission member Mills. The 36-year-old said on BBC Radio Five: “Gary’s quite welcome to his own opinion, of course, but I think when you get that situation – has he volunteered himself? Has he come down to the FA? “Has he phoned up Greg Dyke and said, ‘look, you know I am one of the greatest England players that ever played, I have some ideas’? “Rather than the sanctuary of the Match of the Day studio, come and put your ideas on the line and see what people think of that.” The commission’s formation comes during a week in which the idea of Manchester United’s Belgium-born teenager Adnan Januzaj playing for England has been a topic of much debate.

Brisbane Heat pull off huge coup, signing AB de Villiers for BBL

first_imgAB de Villiers will be playing in the BBL after all, with Brisbane Heat securing one of the biggest signings in the recent history of the competition.de Villiers, who retired from international cricket in 2018, had attracted huge interest from BBL clubs earlier this year but pulled back from committing to playing in Australia in May.However, in a surprise announcement yesterday morning the Heat revealed they had signed de Villiers for the second half of the tournament, including the finals should the Heat get that far.de Villiers will spend Christmas at home in Pretoria and it appears likely he will link up with the Heat around January 6 or 8.The Heat play Sydney Thunder in Sydney on January 6, but de Villiers appears more likely to play his first game against Hobart Hurricanes on January 9 at the Gabba.“You go through moments after retirement when you’re really keen to play then you just want to be at home,” he said. “It’s really difficult to balance that out. Time spent at home and time away, so I’m very selective of where I play at the moment, and the body is getting a bit older so I can’t play too much.”“I was in close contact with (coach) Darren (Lehmann) over email and that was a big part of the reason why I am coming over. He certainly pushed me over the edge.He’s a great guy and I am sure we will get to know each other well over the tournament. I’ve always had a lot of respect for the way he played his game and the way he handled everything when he was with the Aussie team, and I am sure I can learn a bit from him with my batting.”de Villiers said he had also spoken to former Heat captain Brendon McCullum about joining and was keen to play alongside current captain Chris Lynn after getting to know him through the IPL.“I’ve spoken to Chris a few times after games in the IPL,” de Villiers said. “I always enjoy the way he plays the game, he really goes after the bowling, he attacks the game, and he seems like a really good team-mate.He gives his best shot for the boys. I’m looking forward to joining forces with him. The Heat have always stood out to me.Lehmann, the new Heat coach who took over from Daniel Vettori, was ecstatic to get a player of de Villiers’ quality.“World-class players don’t just come along every day and to have a player of AB’s stature and skill in the BBL is a fantastic outcome for everyone, not just the Heat,” Lehmann said.“He’s a 360-degree player, great skills, outstanding temperament, and an insightful leader. We’re excited to bring him into the group this summer and allow him to showcase his skills for the fans.”de Villiers signing is a huge coup for the tournament as a whole. The BBL had significant trouble last season attracting big names. A combination of the elongated tournament and the small salary cap, by comparison to global standards, made it very difficult for clubs to attract high-quality overseas talent.When de Villiers initially withdrew his interest from playing in the BBL back in May there were genuine concerns about how the competition could attract quality overseas players moving forward.de Villiers is the start of a set of overseas signings to come around the BBL.Australia’s international players will also be available for the last week of the tournament as well as the finals in early February after a week-long ODI tour of India.

Women’s basketball breakdown: Badgers suffer overtime loss to Wildcats in first round of Big Ten Tournament

first_imgA long, difficult and disappointing season came to an end on Wednesday as the Wisconsin women’s basketball team fell in overtime to Northwestern 76-72 in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. The Badgers (7-22) could not hold onto to a double-digit second half lead and allowed the Wildcats (16-15) to snatch the game away in the closing moments.The Badgers had an opportunity to end the game in regulation, but were unable to get a shot off in the closing moments after a 27-second possession.Then, down two points with 10 seconds remaining overtime, UW had an opportunity to extend the game. Senior guard Nicole Bauman had a chance to tie the game when she found an open alley to the hoop. She drove to the basket, but was blocked by Northwestern’s Amber Jamison.The Wildcats hit their free throws to extend their lead to four, and the Badgers’ season was over.As has been the case over the last month of play, the Wildcats honed in on UW’s leading scorer in Bauman, as she was held to just five points on 2-of-13 shooting and dealt with foul trouble throughout the game.Wisconsin player of the game: Redshirt junior forward Avyanna YoungDespite Michala Johnson’s outstanding night — she had 22 points and eight rebounds — it was Young who proved to be the x-factor as she gave the Badgers a powerful low-post punch. Young scored 11 points and grabbed a team-high 14 rebounds to keep Wisconsin in the game when they needed them most. Her first double double of the year will hopefully help spring board her into a big senior season.Northwestern player of the game: Sophomore guard Christen InmanInman tied for a game-high 18 points and corralled nine rebounds en route to the Wildcats victory. In addition to her scoring, she paced the offense and remarkably only had a single turnover despite playing 39 minutes in the game.QuotableJohnson on her productive first half: “When Wisconsin becomes a powerhouse, it will be because of those seniors and what they contributed, even though the ‘win’ column didn’t say that. If you look at the scores, they’re right there. We just need one or two more players to buy in and come and make the Badgers what we know they can be.” “I knew a lot of the personnel guarding me was in foul trouble, so I just needed to keep attacking. If they came over and doubled, I would have dished, but I just kept attacking and going to the basket every time.”Senior guard Dakota White on her career at Wisconsin:“This has been a great four years for me. This will, you know, prepare me for any adversity that I hit in the next five or 10 years. But my career here was definitely one that was an upward movement, and I’m just so grateful that I have the opportunity to play here.”Wisconsin head coach Bobbie Kelsey on what her seniors mean to this program:last_img read more

first_imgMORE: Watch the Auto Club 400 live & on demand with fuboTV (7-day trial)The two-mile intermediate track in California provides a new challenge for drivers this season as Daytona features restrictor plates and the other tracks have been on the 1.5-mile side.This track presents a distinct challenge with tire wear, which played a direct role in the finish at Atlanta earlier this season when Kyle Larson lost the second stage almost purely because of this.Busch found his way to the front of that race as well, but he’ll have stiff competition as Martin Truex Jr.’s car has been extremely fast of late and he is the defending champion. Ryan Blaney and Aric Almirola have both been good as well so this won’t be a cake walk for Busch.What time does the Auto Club 400 start?The Auto Club 400 will take place Sunday, March 17.

Chicago Blackhawks to investigate assistant coach Marc Crawford after allegation of physical abuse

August 14, 2020

first_imgThe recent onslaught of NHL coaches under the limelight for physical or verbal abuse of players continues to accumulate. Most recently, Marc Crawford has been put on the spot, with former NHLer Sean Avery alleging that Crawford kicked him while the two were in Los Angeles with the Kings.”He kicked me after a too-many-men-on-the-ice call I took,” Avery told the New York Post. “He didn’t have me serve it, we got scored on, and he let me have it. You know how I stand at the end of the bench? He came down and gave me an ass kick that left a mark.” Coming off the heels of Bill Peters’ resignation due to reports of using a racial slur and allegations of physical abuse from the former Calgary Flames head coach, Crawford’s name has been added to the list of NHL coaches who have some ghosts in the closet.RELATED: Johan Franzen calls Mike Babcock “the worst person I’ve ever met”Mike Babcock, who was fired by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 20, has received his own share of negative media attention, with allegations coming out that he made Mitch Marner rank his teammates, was “verbally assaulting” Johan Franzen and more. MORE: Hockey Canada releases statement in wake of Bill Peters scandalCrawford, now an assistant coach with the Chicago Blackhawks, allegedly conducted the physical abuse toward Avery during the 2006-07 season. Chicago announced in a press release Monday that they will be conducting an investigation on the matter.”The Chicago Blackhawks will be conducting a thorough review of assistant coach Marc Crawford based on the recent allegations that have been made regarding his conduct with another organization. Marc Crawford will be away from the team during this time and the organization will have no further comment until completion of the review,” the statement read.Patrick O’Sullivan, who was also on the 2006-07 Kings team, echoed the allegations on Twitter following the Blackhawks announcement by saying, “I talked about his physical abuse in my book 4 years ago kicking me and others on the bench. Verbal abuse included homophobic slurs on a regular basis. I look forward to participating in your investigation.”Another former player, Brent Sopel, stated his appearance on “Spittin’ Chiclets” about a year ago has been misinterpreted as a statement against Crawford. “The stories I shared on ‘Spittin’ Chiclets’ have recently been cited alongside accusations made by other players against Coach Marc Crawford,” Sopel said.”I recognize and respect that different coaching tactics affect people in different ways,” he continued. Sopel played three seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks from 2007-10.last_img read more
