He said trying to balance both the demands of work at home and stay at home was a major challenge for strata communities which were not ideally set up to cope.But he said “if parents want to allow their children to play under supervision in communal areas, they should first seek body corporate permission”.“That could be considered a reasonable request under the current circumstances and the body corporate could even suggest an appropriate time of day for this activity to take place while in lockdown.”He said body corporate committees faced many challenges during the lockdown period that meant there was a need for “some flexibility and compromise to ensure community harmony during and after the lockdown period”.

Pearson: Let’s stay in control

first_img “It’s the same as it always is. But we know we’re going into every game to make it back to back three points. Next week we’ll try and make it three out of three.” Vardy had double delight after taking the players’ Grand National sweepstake by picking winner Many Clouds. “I’ve won the sweepstake on the National so I’m buzzing. It’s been a pretty decent day,” he added. “I just go to racing for the giggle. “Winning the sweepstake was nice, but three points were the main thing.” Albion are seven points above the bottom three after suffering successive home defeats to QPR and Leicester. Defender Joleon Lescott insisted the Baggies were confident of survival but admitted they still needed the points. “Yes, 100 per cent,” he said. “We need more points – we can’t rely on others not getting results. “We need to dig in. The way it stands, it’s in our hands and that’s the way you want it to be. “If you ask the teams below us which position they’d rather be in, they’d say ours. On paper it might have looked as though QPR and Leicester were easier games due to the positions they were in. “But I’d say they need the points more than anyone else we’re going to face. “Every game’s cup final now, that’s the way we’ve been thinking but it’s probably hitting home now that we’re in the mix.” The Foxes snatched a last-gasp 3-2 win at West Brom on Saturday to move just three points from safety. Jamie Vardy’s injury-time winner earned back-to-back Barclays Premier League wins for Pearson’s side, although they remain bottom. Boss Nigel Pearson urged Leicester to ensure their destiny remains in their hands after they blew the race for survival wide open. Press Association Pearson was assistant manager at the Baggies when, in 2005, they became the first team in Barclays Premier League history to survive despite being bottom at Christmas. Sunderland managed the feat last season and with Leicester having been rooted to the foot since November Pearson knows what it takes. “The most difficult thing in that experience, in those final games we knew if we got it to the last day and still been in it, we’ve got a chance,” he said. “Our penultimate game that season was Manchester United away and we got one of the most bizarre draws ever but it gave us a chance. “We have to make sure our destiny remains with our own results and whenever that’s the case there is a realistic opportunity so that’s what we’re aiming to do.” Leicester fought back twice after Darren Fletcher and Craig Gardner put the Baggies ahead, in between David Nugent’s equaliser. Robert Huth grabbed a second leveller with 10 minuted left before Vardy won it in stoppage time and the striker is eyeing a third straight win. “We’re back to three points behind now with a game in hand. And hopefully we will win again next week (against Swansea),” he said. last_img read more

Klopp urges Salah to use Liverpool teammate Mane as inspiration

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Mohamed Salah “Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment. In football it’s sometimes like this,” Klopp told Liverpool’s website.“He is in a really good moment, of course. The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work.“That’s exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same, just work, do the right things and it will come again.“He’s just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment — he is in brilliant shape, that’s true.“But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored. That’s how it is, all good.”center_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah should use Sadio Mane as inspiration as the Egypt star looks to hit peak form after an inconsistent season.Salah scored 44 times in his debut season with Liverpool, but his second campaign has not been so smooth.Although Salah has 20 goals in the current campaign, his goalless run of seven matches is the longest he has experienced since a 10-game streak for Roma in 2015-16.That is a concern, with Liverpool chasing their first English title since 1990 and also through to the Champions League quarter-finals.Fortunately for Liverpool, Senegal winger Mane is in fine form and has moved level on 20 goals with Salah, after netting 11 in as many games.Mane had gone goalless in eight outings in November and December during a spell of 17 matches in which he scored just three times.Having seen Mane work through his drought successfully, Klopp believes Salah will soon see his luck change in front of goal as well.last_img read more


Los Al’s Hill too much for H.B. to overcome

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “We played great on offense, I think we only punted once,” Los Alamitos coach John Barnes said. “Since the year began, we’ve really made great strides on offense and every week. We are getting better and better.” Thursday’s game was Hill’s fifth career start behind center. “And what can you say about Ross he’s just making play after play,” Barnes said. “Now, if we can get our defense to play better then watch out.” “You can really see how much he’s grown since his first start,” Barnes added. “He’s got good command of the offense and looks like a real leader now.” As good as the Griffins were on offense, however, they weren’t near as capable on defense. The Griffins really struggled against the Oilers rushing attack. Week by week, the Los Alamitos High football team’s offense is getting better and that has to be a scary thought for the rest of Division I. The third-ranked Griffins kicked off the Sunset League on Thursday night by going on the road and beating Huntington Beach, 45-35, thanks to senior quarterback Ross Hill. In just his fifth career start, Hill threw for 225 yards and a touchdown on 9-of-10 passing and, for good measure, also scored twice on the ground. Hill threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to junior receiver Nick Brucculeri in the second quarter that gave the Griffins a 31-14 lead heading into halftime. Brucculeri finished with five catches for 158 yards. center_img Huntington Beach running back Stephen Gabbard carried the ball 33 times for 236 yards and also scored five touchdowns. Down 38-21 in the fourth quarter, Gabbard scored on a 31-yard run to cut the lead to 10 but on the ensuing on-side kick attempt, Los Alamitos receiver Craig Chambers recovered the ball and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to extend the lead back up to 45-28. Gabbard added another touchdown with 2:11 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Oilers attempted anouther on-side kick. The Griffins recovered it again and killed off the final two minutes on the clock. Huntington Beach wound up with 382 yards of total offense. Junior running back Chris Soto led Los Alamitos in rushing, carrying the ball seven times for 55 yards and a touchdown. “I think this game shows just how tough the Sunset League is,” Barnes said. “That was a tough, physical football game and it seemed like our defense was out there the entire second half. “They wore us down with their running game but since the start of the season, we’ve lost seven starters so we’re still making adjustments. It just seems like every week for us is a new adventure but as long as we win, I’m happy.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You Dont Know What Tony Romos Got Till Hes Gone

September 30, 2019

Rex Grossman508212.9 David Woodley504712.3 Tom Brady5121+23.3 Boomer Esiason1045512.7 Peyton Manning722321.7 Tony Romo802916.7 UPDATE (Nov. 26, 10:30 p.m.): Tony Romo reinjured his collarbone on Thursday in a game against the Carolina Panthers. ESPN reported that he will be out for the rest of the season.By beating the Miami Dolphins Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys preserved their undefeated record this season with quarterback Tony Romo under center. That’s the good news for Cowboys fans; the bad news is that Romo has only played three games. Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden were both winless when filling in at QB while Romo was out with a broken clavicle. At 3-7, the Cowboys have little chance of making the playoffs unless they go on a serious tear against what isn’t an easy schedule down the stretch.If nothing else, the Cowboys’ season has reinforced just how completely essential Romo is. His absence has made it clear that he belongs in any discussion of the league’s top signal-callers.Romo ranks among the top QBs in the NFL over his career, whether you use data from the box score1He ranks fifth in adjusted net yards per attempt since taking over as a starter in 2006. or more advanced, play-by-play metrics.2He ranks eighth in QBR. But Romo also has a reputation, starting early in his career and growing with each passing year since the Cowboys’ last Super Bowl win, for not being “a winner.”While it’s possible Romo is a stat-stuffer whose great individual numbers overstate his true worth, there are other ways to detect a player’s value. For instance, here at FiveThirtyEight we’re oddly thankful when players miss time because it gives us a chance to quantify their influence on the performance of their teams. And few quarterbacks in NFL history have been associated with a better with-or-without-you (WOWY) ledger than Romo.To help measure this WOWY effect, I used Elo ratings, FiveThirtyEight’s pet power rating system. Elo gives us a snapshot of how good each team was expected to be at any given moment, as well as how much a team’s strength estimate changes over time. By looking at those changes in conjunction with who the team’s primary QB was during that game3Meaning the QB who attempted the most passes in a given game., we can construct WOWY scores that measure how much having a given passer under center helps the team.For instance, after Romo’s Cowboys beat Philadelphia in Week 2 (the game in which Romo was lost to injury), they achieved a 1618 Elo rating. Seven games later, when he took the field again on Sunday, Dallas’s rating had dropped to 1463, meaning it lost about 22 points of Elo per game in his absence. By comparison, the Cowboys gained about 19 points of rating per game when Romo does play, so his WOWY this season is +41: the team gains 41 more points of Elo per game when he plays than when he doesn’t.Gaining 41 points of WOWY is incredibly impressive by itself. In seasons where a QB both played and missed at least three games, only Dan Fouts’ 1978 season ranks higher since 19704The year of the AFL-NFL merger.. But it’s nothing new for Romo, who has consistently been good for the Cowboys. Over his career, his WOWY score of +16.7 ranks third among qualified5Minimum 50 games as a team’s primary passer in a career, and 20 games missed. passers since 1970: Drew Brees872513.7 GAMES John Elway1513613.9 Joey Harrington552512.4 QUARTERBACKWITHWITHOUTWOWY ∆ ELO Joe Ferguson947712.2 That Rex Grossman and Joey Harrington are anywhere near Tom Brady and Peyton Manning on that table shows that this isn’t a completely foolproof method. (For one thing, WOWY can’t factor in the quality of a QB’s backups, beyond what Elo is able to detect from changes in a team’s performance.) But it does suggest that, in terms of making his team more likely to win games, Romo has done an impressive job with the supporting cast the Cowboys have given him. Like Brady6Don’t let the 11-5 record against a weak schedule fool you; the Cassel-led 2008 Pats were significantly worse than they were in 2007 or would be in 2009. and Manning, Romo is associated with elevating his teams’ chances of winning games in addition to gaudy stats.That probably won’t be enough to change anyone’s mind in one of those endless arguments about Romo, but it does quantify what we’ve seen so far this season: The Cowboys are a very good team with Romo — and are totally lost without him.Check out our NFL predictions for odds on every game. read more
