Patrick aims to lift Waterhouse in Red Stripe Premier League

first_img Standings Today’s Games In a bid to go forward and change their fortunes in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), former champions Waterhouse have gone back to where they were last season – under the guidance of Anthony Patrick. His first assignment is against Cavalier Soccer Club. Patrick, who quit the club at the end of last season, returned on Thursday last, following the resignation of Calvert Fitzgerald, with the team rooted in the relegation position. This time around, though, Patrick, who first joined Waterhouse in 2007 and remained with them until earlier this year, will work alongside technical director Paul Young, when he becomes available in November. “It was a very warm welcome Thursday morning. It has given me the confidence that I need to go and do the job that is required. The feeling that you are wanted and that you have the support of the players and management is very important,” Patrick said of his return. That welcome, though, will be short-lived, and there is a rescue mission to perform. “The game will be an interesting one. We are at the bottom of the table, so we have to roll up our socks and work hard. “They (the players) have shown a willingness to do that in the two sessions I have had with them, so that is a good start,” added Patrick, who was promoted to the position of head coach at the beginning of last season after assisting the previous season and working with the youth teams in his earlier years. Today’s opponents are in seventh position on eight points, four more than Waterhouse. However, Patrick is confident his group of players have what it takes to win. The veteran, Jermain Anderson, is a proven scorer and a willing servant of the club. The addition of Kemar Beckford and the return to fitness of Kenroy Howell and Gary McIntosh, he said, are major pluses. “I am going for a win. I have seen Cavalier. They are a good, talented bunch, but we are confident that we have what it takes. “It will be tough, but as long as we do what we are capable of doing, we will get the three points,” the confident Patrick said. Cavalier’s technical director, Rudolph Speid, gave some insight into Patrick’s confidence. “Waterhouse owned us last season. We led in all three games last year, and they came back and won. They are like a bogey team for us, added to that the fact that Patrick was the coach last season. That is not a good sign for us,” he said. Despite that fact, Speid said the intention is to make this game a season-defining one for his team. “This is a game that could shape our season. We have played well in all departments, with the exception of our goalscoring. “We have tried, but we are still not scoring the goals and that is why we are where we are. We have to do much better in that area. We have some young players who we are persevering with,” Speid noted. In previous seasons, Girvon Brown and Claudious Blackburn led the team in goalscoring, but both departed for UWIFC and Harbour View, respectively. Interestingly, they are yet to find the back of the net so far this season. “We do not have a lot of good strikers in Jamaica, more so Cavalier, but we are hopeful that we will get it right. We have O’Shane Jenkinson returning to form, there are some quality young players who could be involved, and we have Akeem Shackleford with us. Shackleford is our most prolific scorer in training, so it is just for him to carry that over into the games,” explained Speid, whose top player is Chevonne Marsh.

Guardiola unamused by Bayern’s Sane pursuit

first_img0Shares0000Pep Guardiola made clear his determination to keep Leroy Sane © AFP / HECTOR RETAMALSHANGHAI, China, Jul 19 – Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola took a swipe Friday at Bayern Munich over their pursuit of Leroy Sane and said there had been no contact from them about the winger.Former Bayern star Lothar Matthaus was quoted as saying that the German can become the “new face” of the Bundesliga champions. But Guardiola has made clear his determination to keep Sane, who has been offered a new contract at City but found himself out the Premier League champions’ side at times last season.“For a long time they are talking about their interest in Leroy Sane,” said an unamused Guardiola, who joined City from Bayern in 2016.Speaking in Shanghai on the eve of City’s Asia Trophy final against Wolves, Guardiola said there had been no contact from Bayern over the highly-rated German international.Sane came on as a second-half substitute in a 4-1 win over West Ham on Wednesday in Nanjing and Guardiola is adamant he wants the 23-year-old to stay.“He is our player and we hope that he can stay here this season and next season and next season.”The Spaniard, who backed by money from the Middle East has made City a formidable outfit, did not rule out buying a replacement for central defender and captain Vincent Kompany.The Belgian left in the summer to take over as player-coach of Anderlecht.City have since been heavily linked with Leicester City’s England international Harry Maguire, who is also interesting Manchester United.“There’s a chance (they could buy a defender) but I don’t know it will be possible,” he said.“We have three incredible centre-backs who can play in that position so… we will see.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Championship trio placed under transfer embargo for breaking FFP rules

first_imgChampionship clubs Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Bolton have all been placed under a transfer embargo for the rest of the season after breaking Financial Fair Play rules during the 2014-15 campaign, the Football League has announced.Fulham and Nottingham Forest were sanctioned after exceeding an adjusted loss of £6million – the maximum rules allow – while Bolton were punished after being unable to submit their FFP return owing to their current off-field situation which has seen them served with a winding-up petition by HMRC over an unpaid tax bill.The punishment means all three clubs will be unable to sign players in next month’s transfer window.Last season’s Championship winners Bournemouth also posted losses of more than £6million and will face a fine, the amount of which is yet to be revealed.Millwall, who were relegated to League One last term, also went over the maximum deviation of losses, but will not be punished.A Football League statement read: “An initial analysis of Financial Fair Play submissions from clubs that played in the Sky Bet Championship last season has resulted in three clubs being subject to sanctions, under rules agreed with league clubs in April 2012.“All three exceeded the maximum permitted deviation of £6m – consisting of a maximum adjusted loss of £3m plus a further maximum of £3m of shareholder investment.“Champions AFC Bournemouth will face a financial sanction to be finalised in due course, while Fulham and Nottingham Forest will be subject to an ‘FFP embargo’ for the remainder of the current campaign. Both clubs will have the opportunity to have their FFP embargo lifted at the end of the season by demonstrating that they have stayed within the maximum permitted deviation of £13m (£5m loss plus £8m shareholder investment) for the 2015/16 season.“A further club, Millwall, also exceeded the maximum permitted deviation but will not face any further sanction, in line with Championship FFP regulations, following the club’s relegation to League One as it was not deemed to have gained any significant advantage.“The Football League is currently in discussions with a number of other clubs over their FFP submissions and will confirm any further FFP embargoes, if any, in due course.“Bolton Wanderers did not submit an FFP return owing to the club’s ongoing financial difficulties. As a result, the club will not be permitted to sign any players until it has complied with its obligations under the Championship’s FFP regulations.” 1 Championship trio placed under transfer embargo for breaking FFP rules last_img read more

Dianne Feinstein because she thinks the California lawmaker has been too supportive of the war. Sheehan issued a statement Friday saying her decision to oppose Feinstein would also depend on whether the Democratic senator backed a filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito. Later in the day, Feinstein announced she would support the filibuster, reversing an earlier position that she did not think the move was justified. Reached by telephone in Venezuela, where she was attending the World Social Forum, Sheehan criticized Feinstein for voting to send U.S. troops into Iraq in 2003 and for not demanding a troop withdrawal as the war has dragged on. “Somebody needs to get in there who can credibly challenge her on her war record,” Sheehan told The Associated Press. last_img read more
