John Terry nets last-gasp leveller to deny Everton rare Stamford Bridge win

first_imgJohn Terry scored a 98th-minute equaliser as fallen Premier League champions Chelsea avoided another chastening defeat in a 3-3 draw with Everton. The first half was tepid, with little action on goal. Howard denied Willian and Bryan Oviedo shot just wide for Everton, for whom former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku threatened. Lukaku, who asked Mourinho to leave and was granted his wish, lurked menacingly, but Kurt Zouma repeatedly kept him quiet, often by covering for captain Terry. Two Everton goals in eight second-half minutes brought the contest to life and watching England boss Roy Hodgson would have been pleased with the impact of Leighton Baines. First, the left-back crossed for Terry to bundle the ball into his own net and then, after Ross Barkley had hit the post, Baines centred for Mirallas to control and fire in on the turn to leave the Toffees looking on course to claim a first league win at Stamford Bridge since November 1994. It was all Everton, until calamity struck for the visitors. Howard found himself in no-man’s land in a mix-up with Phil Jagielka, with neither reaching Fabregas’ long ball, and Costa walked the ball in. Suddenly Chelsea had awoken from their slumber. Oscar shot at Howard and then Fabregas benefited from a deflection off Muhamed Besic to equalise. Ten minutes after going 2-0 down, Chelsea were level. They might have gone ahead had Costa made meaningful contact with a Cesar Azpilicueta cross. Everton almost had a third themselves as Barkley threaded a ball through for Mirallas, who was thwarted by Thibaut Courtois. Costa had to withdraw, with Loic Remy coming on, after the Spain international came off worse when fouling Baines. Everton thought they had won it when Remy headed Deulofeu’s corner back to him and the Everton winger crossed again to the back post where Funes Mori adjusted to flick the ball past Courtois. Lukaku was also unmarked and might have scored too. But Terry denied the Toffees a memorable win. TWEET OF THE MATCH “Sometimes you need luck. 1 minute extra of the extra time plus it was offside” – former Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit RATINGS CHELSEA Thibaut Courtois: 7 Branislav Ivanovic: 6 Cesar Azpilicueta: 6 Kurt Zouma: 7 John Terry: 6 John Obi Mikel: 6 Nemanja Matic: 6 Cesc Fabregas: 8 Diego Costa: 8 Willian: 7 Pedro: 6 Subs: Kennedy: 6 Loic Remy: 6 EVERTON Tim Howard: 7 Bryan Oviedo: 7 Leighton Baines: 7 John Stones: 7 Phil Jagielka: 5 Gareth Barry: 7 Aaron Lennon: 7 Muhamed Besic: 6 Romelu Lukaku: 7 Ross Barkley: 6 Kevin Mirallas: 8 Substitutes: Ramiro Funes Mori: 6 Gerard Deulofeu: 6 Steven Pienaar: 6 STAR PLAYER Cesc Fabregas – Made one and scored one in Chelsea’s fightback as signs of his once apparently telepathic understanding with Diego Costa returned. MOMENT OF THE MATCH The clock was ticking onto 98 minutes when Terry flicked in an equaliser for Chelsea on his 700th club appearance. Everton protested as fourth official Craig Pawson had signalled only seven minutes would be added. VIEW FROM THE BENCH Chelsea made a solitary change from the fractious draw with West Brom, with Oscar replaced by Nemanja Matic, while Everton made three changes following the draw at Manchester City. Bryan Oviedo, Kevin Mirallas and Aaron Lennon came in. Everton substitutes Deulofeu and Funes Mori combined for what appeared to be the winner, before the late intervention of Terry. MOAN OF THE MATCH Surely the timing system in football can be more transparent and clear? We were told there would be seven minutes of stoppage time, only for a goal to come in the eighth. If seven minutes was not enough added time, why? NEXT UP Arsenal v Chelsea (Barclays Premier League, Sunday, January 24) Everton v Swansea (Barclays Premier League, Sunday, January 24) A howler from Tim Howard allowed Diego Costa to net and Cesc Fabregas’ deflected strike levelled matters. Worse was to follow for Chelsea when Costa limped off and Funes Mori turned in fellow substitute Gerard Deulofeu’s cross. But Terry converted after a late bombardment, to the fury of the visitors after seven minutes’ stoppage time had been signalled by the fourth official, to earn a scarcely believable point. Chelsea are now unbeaten in seven since Jose Mourinho’s departure, with Guus Hiddink avoiding a first loss of his second spell in caretaker charge. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was again watching on, wearing a jacket adorned with the Champions League logo, and must be wishing for this season of strife to end. The point did little to aid Chelsea’s hopes of returning to a place among Europe’s elite. That prospect appears to depend on winning the Champions League this season, a scenario which appears even more far-fetched than when they did so in 2012. A more realistic prospect, as Hiddink admitted on Friday, is relegation and Chelsea flirted with falling closer to the drop zone. Ramiro Funes Mori’s late goal appeared to have earned the Toffees a first league win at Stamford Bridge in 21 years, but Terry flicked in on his 700th club appearance. Terry’s own goal and a Kevin Mirallas strike put Everton 2-0 up, but Chelsea scored twice in quick succession to restore parity. Press Associationlast_img read more

Manchester United sue Football Manager for use of club’s name

first_imgManchester United have launched a lawsuit against makers of the popular video game Football Manager over the use of the club’s names.Sega Publishing and Sports Interactive (SI) use the official names of Premier League club’s but not the official badges.Instead of the official crest, a basic red and white striped crest is united for the Old Trafford club.Now the Red Devils have decided to take legal action because they argue their trademark has been infringed due to the unofficial crest.At a hearing on Friday, United’s barrister Simon Malynicz QC said: “the name ‘Manchester United’ is one of the world’s most valuable and recognised brands”.He said the money clubs make from licensing their names and logos is “very significant” and “the products and services that are licensed by the claimant benefit from an association with the club’s winning culture and its brand values”.Malynicz argued, in relation to the alleged infringement of the trademark on Man United‘s logo, that “consumers expect to see the club crest next to the name Manchester United … and this failure to do so amounts to wrongful use”.He accepted this argument is “somewhat novel, and certainly in the context of video games, but it is certainly arguable”.Sega and SI say the use of the club’s name is “a legitimate reference to the Manchester United football team in a football context” and has been used in Football Manager and Championship Manager “without complaint by the claimant”.Legal action means fans are already considering the fact Manchester United could be known as ‘Man Red’ or something similar in FM21.Juventus are currently known as Zebre due to Pro Evolution Soccer owning the rights to Juventus’ name.

Tottenham 0 – 1 Real Madrid (agg 0 – 5)

first_imgTottenham’s hopes of performing a Champions League miracle came to an inevitable conclusion as Real Madrid rounded off an emphatic quarter-final triumph with victory at White Hart Lane.Spurs boss Harry Redknapp made predictably defiant noises about the possibility of overturning Real’s 4-0 led from the first meeting in the Bernabeu – but in reality this was never a serious option against Jose Mourinho’s side.And so it proved as Real were helped on their way towards an “El Clasico” confrontation with La Liga rivals Barcelona in the last four by a nightmare moment from Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes.Spurs had failed to make any inroads into Real’s lead when Gomes fumbled a routine effort from Cristiano Ronaldo into the net five minutes after the break to complete the formalities and take Mourinho a step closer to a Champions League final with a third club.Redknapp’s players did everything in their power to clear the huge obstacle in front of them and were unfortunate not to be awarded an early penalty when Luka Modric looked to be brought down by Xabi Alonso.It was a rare moment of discomfort for Real as Spurs’ Champions League campaign fizzled out in low-key fashion in front of their own supporters, who showed their appreciation for the efforts of their players in Europe with warm applause, even in disapointment, at the final whistle. Spurs must now turn their attentions towards overhauling Manchester City in the race for a top four place to ensure they return to this stage next season – but they can take great credit from the manner in which they have acquitted themselves in Europe’s elite competition.The night Inter Milan were soundly beaten at White Hart Lane and the victory against AC Milan in the San Siro will live long in the memory. They were undone, however, by Real’s superior quality as well as the self-destruct button Peter Crouch pressed so spectacularly with his early red card in Madrid.Spurs knew only an early goal would provide them with the faintest hope of somehow turning around Real’s advantage from the first leg, but Mourinho’s men were resolute and their only moments of serious anxiety came from three penalty claims.Gareth Bale went down far too easily with Alonso in close attendance and Italian referee Nicola Rizzi was right to ignore the appeals.A second incident involving the former Liverpool midfield man, this time as he challenged Modric, was a much closer call and Real were fortunate to get the benefit of the official’s doubt. The frustration continued as Roman Pavlyunchenko was involved in another collision in the box with Real defender Raul Albiol but once again there was no response from Rizzi.Pavlyuchenko had Spurs’ best opportunity of the first half when Aaron Lennon found himself unmarked 12 yards out, only for the Russian to sky his attempt well over the top. He also tested Iker Casillas with a long-range effort that was held comfortably by the Real keeper.The Spanish side’s responses were fleeting but their main business was closing out the tie with no alarms.They did suffer one setback, however, when Ricardo Carvalho was booked for a foul on Tom Huddlestone that means the influential former Chelsea defender misses the first leg of the semi-final against Barcelona.Spurs were threatened once when Sergio Ramos met Mesut Ozil’s corner, only to see his header turned away by Gomes. The brutal truth was that the game was up after those 90 harrowing minutes in Madrid but any lingering hope Spurs had that they might provoke an unlikely collapse from Real was snuffed out in one dreadful moment for Gomes.Ronaldo’s effort from 25 yards travelled more in hope than expectation but the Brazilian fumbled hopelessly and even botched his attempt to recover the situation as the ball crept over the line.It was then all about limiting the damage and clawing back a measure of respectability for Spurs and Pavlyuchenko had a chance to at least draw them level on the night but he headed Lennon’s cross over the top when unmarked.Lennon was then withdrawn by Spurs and replaced by Jermain Defoe, who wasted no time in testing Casillas with a low 20-yard effort which he turned away.Spurs, to their credit, continued to battle and almost scored when Casillas misjudged Rafael van der Vaart’s corner and Defoe almost smuggled home the loose ball. Tottenham left themselves with an insurmountable task after the first leg and now must focus their attention fully on the Premier League.Source: BBClast_img read more

first_imgThe Ashesi football community completed their fourth edition of the FA Cup with Elites club claiming the prestigious title with the club completed a full circle from being minnows to achievers in their four years of existence.As it was in the first edition of the FA Cup, it took the lottery of spot kicks to decide the winner.Daniel Annang of Kasanoma put the newbies ahead but experience head and Elites veteran Hudson Lekunze  restored parity for the eventual champions.Elites had all their players score all their penalties to claim a 5-3 victory against an up and coming Kasanoma team that showed a lot of promise in their first attempt for the trophy.Both final year coaches, Ernest Kufour and Ekow Spio,  were in dire need of a trophy to leave the Berekuso campus with a shining piece of silverware and were both at their imperious best tweaking and adjusting formations in a classic tactical battle.   The structure of Ashesi’s version of the FA Cup was as follows: a first round playoff match between the fourth (League Of Legends) and fifth (Highlanders) placed teams from the league campaign for a slot in the semifinal after which a draw was made for the semifinal itself.The eventual winners of the semifinal proceeded to the final with Elites claiming the title.Red Army are the most successful side in the FA cup winning two with  the now defunct Walabele and Elites all tied on one.last_img read more

Iowans with spinal injuries seek Medicaid changes

first_imgDES MOINES — A group of Iowans with profound spinal injuries is urging legislators to make changes in Medicaid benefits that help them navigate life while confined to a wheelchair. Michele Meadors of Des Moines said the switch to private management of Medicaid in 2016 has forced some wheelchair-bound Iowans into a long-term care facility.“I pray it never happens to you, but if it does, you’d better thank one of us for paving the way to make sure your life is worth living,” Meadors said during a news conference at the capitol.Jen Wolff of Waverly is another of the more than 300 members of the Iowa chapter of the United Spinal Association.“I think it’s time legislators see people with disabilities not as a sick person, not as a person who’s home-bound or wheelchair-bound, not somebody who’s a drain on the system, but people who want to give back to the state of Iowa,” Wolff said during the news conference.Tucker Cassidy is a quadriplegic from Waterloo who was featured in one of the campaign ads Democratic candidate for governor Fred Hubbell ran last year. Cassidy said he still has trouble arranging daily care through the private company that manages his Medicaid benefits.“If I can’t get out of bed in the morning, how am I supposed to do anything, let alone work?” Cassidy asked.According to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 60,000 Iowans have a disability that makes it difficult to perform “self-care activities” like showering or dressing.last_img read more

Premier League fans to spend £1.3BN this season to follow team

first_imgPREMIER LEAGUE fans will shell out £1.3billion this season to follow their teams as increases in home ticket prices, TV subscriptions and merchandise hit their wallets.A report explored spending by match-going football fans over the past five Premier League seasons, incorporating car and rail travel, merchandise, tickets, in-stadium food and drinks and TV subscriptions.2 Premier League fans will spend a staggering £1.3bn to follow their teams this season, according to a new reportCredit: Getty – ContributorFootball lovers will on average spend £1,888 each this season, with the biggest cost increases being TV subscriptions, merchandise, home tickets and food and beverages.In the 2019/20 season dedicated supporters are expected to spend more than £23.8million on replica shirts, a 31 per cent increase in total spend since 2014/15.But while ticket prices make up a significant proportion of this total cost, the overall cost of tickets for a ‘dedicated fan’ has risen only 1 per cent since 2014/15.The eToro Fan Financial Statement was carried out by multi-asset investment platform eToro in association with KPMG Football Benchmark.Sky Sports pundit and Manchester United legend Gary Neville said: “Football needs to check itself. There are lots of positives about football.”The stadiums are better, the quality of play is fantastic, and the atmosphere is far more inclusive, but for me affordability is something that needs to be addressed.“This report lays out the facts and I hope it will serve as a wake-up call. Football has to stand above other leisure businesses.“It is more than just a game. It is about community and we need to ensure we are doing all we can not to price fans out of the game.”TOP GUNNERSTo better understand the real cost of fandom, the eToro Fan Financial Statement analysed the spend of football’s most faithful supporters.The research focuses on the ‘dedicated fan’ – an adult who attends all 19 home matches and travels to at least five away games.Arsenal are the most expensive team to support with dedicated fans each paying £2,238 per season.Newcastle United are the only club outside of the traditional ‘top six’ to feature in the six most expensive clubs to follow.This is largely due to the increase in season ticket and food and beverage prices, leading to a forecast 4.1 per cent increase in spend year-on-year and a 16.7 per cent increase since 2014.Travel also plays a part. This season Newcastle United fans will travel 68 per cent more miles by train and 65 per cent more miles by car to away matches, than the average Premier League fan.Top ten most expensive clubsEstimated 2019/20 season spend per ‘Dedicated Fan’1. Arsenal – £2,2382. Newcastle United – £2,1243. Tottenham Hotspur – £2,1134. Chelsea – £2,1075. Liverpool – £2,0556. AFC Bournemouth – £1,9727. Southampton – £1,9648. Manchester United – £1,9579. Norwich City – £1,93010. Brighton & Hove Albion – £1,899Premier League average – £1,888The eToro Fan Financial Statement looked at whether some supporters get better value for money than others by examining the total spend by dedicated fans last season in relation to the amount of goals scored and points won.This approach reveals that while dedicated Liverpool fans may spend more versus other fans in the Premier League, they saw good ‘value for money’ based on a low cost per goals scored and points won last season.Of all the clubs, Manchester City fans got the most entertainment for their money, paying £16.90 per goal and £16.30 per point.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big oneThis was helped by having 12 per cent less overall spend than the Premier League average and their top-of-the-table finish.Huddersfield Town fans got the worst deal overall, spending £70 per goal and £96 per point – a situation not helped by their relegation after finishing rock bottom.Neville added: “This isn’t just about money. It is about the family that lives a mile from the club dreaming every weekend that they can go to the game and afford to watch their heroes play.“Every Saturday when I was growing up it was the only thing I thought about.”It was the most important thing in my world. It fuelled my dreams for those 15 years until I joined United.”Iqbal V Gandham, UK managing director at eToro, said: “As a sponsor of six Premier League teams we try to ensure we are giving back to the fans as much as possible.”Our ‘Le Tiss Air’ competition was well received by Southampton fans and this is just the first of many initiatives we will be carrying out this season to reward loyal fans who invest in what they love.Top ten best value clubs1. Manchester City – £16.302. Liverpool – £20.803. Chelsea – £28.504. Wolves – £29.105. Manchester United – £29.206. Tottenham Hotspur – £29.407. Leicester City – £31.008. Arsenal – £31.109.
