Spurs cut Leicester’s lead to five points

first_imgSTOKE, England (AP):Harry Kane and Dele Alli both scored twice yesterday as Tottenham crushed Stoke 4-0 with a devastating attacking display to close the gap on Premier League leaders Leicester City to five points.Tottenham’s fearless performance was an emphatic response to Leicester dropping points in Sunday’s draw with West Ham with four games remaining.Either team winning the league would shake up the established order. Leicester have never won the top flight in their 132-year history and Tottenham’s only titles came in 1951 and 1961.”We’re not going anywhere we are on their tails,” Kane said of Leicester after taking his league-leading tally to 24 goals.The England striker curled in the opener in the ninth minute at Stoke, but Tottenham only burst into life in the second half.The 20-year-old Alli dinked the ball over 39-year-old goalkeeper Shay Given to double Tottenham’s lead in the 67th, but then missed an open goal.Kane did succeed in putting the ball into an unguarded net in the 71st and Alli arrowed a powerful volley into the net to complete the heaviest loss of the season for ninth-place Stoke.last_img read more

4 Teams Protest LFA Elections, Claim Electoral Fraud

first_imgFour first division outfits, Monrovia Breweries and Keitrace, Aries and NPA Football Clubs have formally protested against the just ended elections of the Liberia Football Association (LFA) because of alleged voter fraud and have called on the Elections Appeal Committee to repeal the elections’ results.Madam Korpo Beatrice Kpoto of Keitrace FC and the Monrovia Breweries’ Samuel Ashley, Aries Lemuel Sherman and NPA’s Cyrus Wright in separate letters to the Elections Appeal Committee said the casting of ballot papers in a sealed and unobserved room violated Article 17 of the LFA Electoral Code and dimmed the fairness, transparency and credibility of the elections which inarguably robbed them of the Executive Committee membership.The protest letters prayed that the Soko Sackor’s Election Appeal Committee will give due diligence to their protests to correct the wrongs against the barbarian electioneering which took place last Saturday.They quoted Article 17 saying: “Before the start of the voting procedure, the urn – which shall be transparent where possible – shall be opened and presented to the affiliates of LFA Congress.”They said the method used for last Saturday’s elections, done in secret had the propensity of fingering of the box to replace the actual ballot papers with pre-marked ballot papers.LFA’s General Secretary Alphonso Armah received the protest letters and told the Daily Observer that they were forwarded to the Appeals Committee on Monday, March 24, 2014.Mr. Armah said the ruling was expected to be decided yesterday evening.In last Saturday’s elections, the ballot box was placed in a room where the members of the LFA executive committee were sitting, as well as officials from CAF and FIFA and were far from the electoral committee.Candidates Wilmot Smith, Korpo Beatrice Kpoto, Mustapha Raji and Adolph Lawrence and other stakeholders protested the secret casting of ballots but was rejected by the Elections Committee, headed by Malcolm Joseph.A former member of the LFA’s executive committee, Garmondeh Karnga said the secret ballot carried out last Saturday undermined the election’s credibility since it had the potential for pre-marked ballots.The 19th ordinary LFA’s elective Congress was held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 in the auditorium of Grand Bassa High School in the Port City of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Is this Man United’s next title challenging team?

first_img1 Man United manager Louis van Gaal is likely to be busy in the summer 1 Man United could once again look completely different next season.Funds for manager Louis van Gaal to turn the club into title challengers again are reportedly being gathered, so here are two possible starting line-ups for the 2015/16 campaign. Dani Alves has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer, but it is thought any club wishing to have the full-back in their ranks will have to hand the 31-year-old a three-year contract. Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane has also been linked with a stunning £35m move, while up front it is being reported that Man United scouts have been sent to Portugal to watch Porto striker Jackson Martinez.News of Martinez’s possible arrival follows the increasing pressure on Radamel Falcao, who continues to struggle in front of goal. As you can see below, it is not just in attack where the club are rumoured to be keen to reinforce.Juventus midfielder and former Old Trafford academy star Paul Pogba continues to be linked with a move away from Turin in a record-breaking transfer.If a deal for Alves does not happen, then Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne has also been identified as a possible arrival, while Mats Hummels remains a firm target of Van Gaal.Despite playing in midfield recently, Wayne Rooney could be utilised up top again. “I would not say he will always be a midfielder from now on because it depends on the formation we use and the form of the strikers,” Van Gaal said. Given that the Dutchman’s forwards are not firing on all cylinders, then Rooney may be asked to do what he does best: score goals. 1 What area do you hope Louis van Gaal strengthens in the summer?last_img read more

All three were released on $30,000 bail each. Ebell, 22, and Drew were expected to surrender and be arraigned at a later date, Murcia said. Drew, 21, was taken by Jacksonville in the second round of the NFL draft. The running back attended mini-camp in Florida last month.

Chicago Bears cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. and two former UCLA football players were charged with assault Thursday for allegedly taking part in an early morning fight at a restaurant last month.

first_imgBY HAZEL RUSSELL: Plans were in place, the i’s were dotted, and all was organised!   However, unfortunately the only winner on Sunday in this golf competition was the weather!When the committee congregated at the Letterkenny Town Park early Sunday morning to discuss final arrangements with the helicopter pilot, Town Gardener David Donnelly and undertake the mammoth task of getting all of the bunting, gig rig and infrastructure into place, it was reluctantly unanimously agreed by all parties concerned that there was no alternative but to postpone the event!Due to the serious amount of rainfall overnight, it was felt that the ground would not have permitted footfall, never mind the adverse weather forecast scheduled for the afternoon, going right through the night and into early Monday because of the effects of Hurricane Katia. Modern technology to the rescue and all stake holders and artistes were quickly notified so as to cause as little disruption as possible.  Hopefully intending patrons were not inconvenienced too much!  Luckily too that all of the wonderful sponsored items and prizes are of a non perishable nature, and therefore no loss was sustained by this postponement.The good news is that the entire Family Fun Day and Golf Ball Drop has been rescheduled for Sunday 25th September, so if you have failed to secure a ticket for this fantastic draw, then please contact any member of the Lions Club, Rotary Club or indeed the charities, Cairde le Cheile, Down Syndrome or Letterkenny Youth Club.  Indeed, the extra time could help ensure that all of the fun activities may be enhanced further, or indeed an opportunity to source new and exciting entertainment for the gig rig……….time will tell!WEATHER FORCES GOLFBALL DROP TO BE CANCELLED was last modified: September 11th, 2011 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:golf ball drop cancelledletterkennylast_img read more
