The clubs have undertaken intense daily testing to ensure the safety of the players and their families, and although 10 positive tests have been discovered, steps have been taken to isolate those individuals and move forward.The DFL have yet to decide on an official date for getting games back underway – behind closed doors, of course – but plans are being put in place for players to be ready for the second half of the month.There are nine rounds of the current Bundesliga season remaining, with Bayern currently four points clear of Borussia Dortmund at the top.The German approach is in stark contrast to the approaches of France and Netherlands, who have chosen to void their seasons and will start afresh in August or September.Tags: BundesligaCOVID-19Ease of LockdownEuropean FootballGermanylast_img read more

Inler wants to pack a punch

first_img While in Naples the 31-year-old sparred with 1980 Olympic champion Patrizio Oliva after the boxer called his agency to offer extra training following Inler’s admission he liked the sport. And the modest, likeable, Inler believes his extra training will help him succeed in England. He said: “I did it to change a little bit, boxing is good for the body. The first time when I boxed I used my energy without control and Patrizio said ‘why do you box like that? “I never managed to hit him but he could hit me easily. “The Premier League is a physical league, for sure, but when you play fast you they don’t hit you. I like physical games. “Italian football is very tactical but the Premier League is one of the best leagues, very fast. “They fight and the referees sometimes don’t whistle. In Italy they whistle all the time, maybe I like that about here.” The former Udinese man also captained Switzerland in their shock win over world champions Spain 1-0 in last year’s World Cup. Gokhan Inler wants to be a hit in England as he plans to knock out Leicester’s rivals. The midfielder is aiming to bring the skills he learnt in the boxing ring to the Barclays Premier League. Inler is set for his Foxes debut against Tottenham on Saturday after arriving from Napoli on a three-year deal this week. Inler has watched the Foxes’ opening two games, including last week’s 2-1 win at West Ham, as sees the same qualities as his national team. “You know Spain are strong but we knew with one shot we could win. It was one of the best, emotional, games of my career and this team can also grow up,” said Inler, who is likely to be joined in the squad by Christian Fuchs after he shrugs off illness. “Here, at West Ham, the team were struggling but they didn’t give up and that’s the spirit they can have. This is a club who want to make something in the future.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Garry Monk: Franck Tabanou needs to be patient

first_img “So it’s for Franck to fight hard and wait for his opportunity.” Tabanou’s two Swansea appearances to date have come in Capital One Cup ties against lower-league opposition and he has rarely made the matchday squad for Premier League games. But Monk said he was disappointed that Tabanou had spoken publicly about his frustration in the French media. “These situations are very common now and I look at them as a player being very poorly advised,” Monk said. “It’s disappointing to hear those type of things and it doesn’t benefit the player in anyway shape or form. “Your job as a professional footballer is to get your head down and do everything you can for the manager to pick you. “That means working harder than any other player in your position, less talking and more action. “That’s the way it should be as a professional footballer and it amazes me that players talk in the newspapers. “It’s not clever and it makes me think that the player is ill-advised and should have a look at himself.” However, Monk says that Tabanou, who signed a three-year contract last summer, will not be leaving Swansea in the January transfer window. “I brought Franck to the club because potentially I think he’s a great talent,” Monk said. “He’s working hard and I’m happy with him. “What he needs to realise is he has to work as hard as you can and give the manager no excuse whatsoever. “That’s his job, but at this moment Neil’s not giving the shirt up.” Press Association “I have never been used to this. The hardest thing, is to see that there is not even competition. I am not even in the squad,” Tabanou was quoted as saying in L’Equipe. “I cannot stay like this. If this continues, we will make a decision in December. But, me, I am just asking for my chance.” In the interview, however, Tabanou, who said he told his agent to ignore interest from Dynamo Kiev, Sevilla and other clubs because his preference was to join Swansea, admitted he was “not cutting it” at training when he first moved to Wales and “he was under what was required” physically. Tabanou said his fitness results were now “one of the best” at Swansea but Monk feels the 26-year-old has to show patience for a first-team opportunity. “When Franck came to the club I was surprised to see he wasn’t at the level of others in certain elements,” Monk said. “I told him that and a lot of the staff and myself have worked with Franck to get him up to the level of what is needed and required to play in this team. “Unfortunately for him, in the period it’s taken him to get to that level players in his position are already there and playing games, so they’re ahead of him. “Look at Tayls (Taylor). He came in flying straight away in pre-season and he’s ahead of Franck. Tabanou joined Swansea from St Etienne in a £3.5million deal in June and had been expected to push Wales international Neil Taylor for a first-team spot at left-back. But Tabanou has yet to play a single minute in the Barclays Premier League and spoke of his frustration in French newspaper L’Equipe this week, asking why Swansea had bought him in the first place and saying he would consider his future ahead of the January transfer window. Swansea manager Garry Monk admits he was surprised by Franck Tabanou’s physical condition when he arrived at the club last summer and says the France Under-21 international has been playing catch-up ever since.last_img read more

Cricket News Live Streaming Cricket, India vs West Indies, 2nd ODI: When, Where and How to Watch IND vs WI Match Live Match on TV

first_imgNew Delhi: Live Streaming Cricket, India vs West Indies Second ODI Online at SonyLiv & Live Telecast Sony Sports TV Channel: Virat Kohli finally broke his century drought as he blasted his 42nd century and eighth against the West Indies as his record-breaking knock, in addition to Shreyas Iyer’s attacking 71 helped India end on 279/7. Kohli sjared wonderful partnerships with Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer but the West Indies bowlers bowled well in patches as they looked to restrict the scoring. Kohli became the leading run-getter in ODIs against the West Indies but once both Kohli and Iyer departed, India struggled to end well in the death overs as West Indies struck at regular intervals. India’s score of 279/7 is good on a wicket that is slowing down and it could offer the spinners some assistance. In response, Chris Gayle shattered Brian Lara’s record of runs but fell cheaply. After a rain break reduced the game to 46 overs, Evin Lewis and Nicholas Pooran looked in good touch with Lewis scoring his sixth fifty. But, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took four wickets and West Indies’ lower order were blown away as India won the match by 59 runs via DLS method to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

Starling last-second basket gives Bees win over Liverpool

first_img Tags: Baldwinsvilleboys basketball Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Four days earlier, Starling had, in one afternoon against reigning state Class AA champion West Genesee, surpassed 1,000 career points and then scored 16 in the fourth quarter to carry his team past the Wildcats.Now, against a Liverpool side that had beaten both West Genesee and Corcoran in December, Starling delivered again.Up until the very end, Liverpool’s defensive strategy – shut down everyone around Starling – worked quite well. The two sides traded the lead throughout the first half with little separation, and even though Starling had 16 points in the half, the Bees only led by two, 27-25, at the break.What helped keep Liverpool close was an ability to close out quarters. Jacob Vacco’s 3-pointer beat the first-quarter horn, and Romeo Clarke did the same in the final seconds of the third quarter, reducing B’ville’s lead to 37-35.The back-and-forth battle raged through the final minutes. It was tied, 45-45, when Starling’s sixth 3-pointer of the night got his team in front.After it pulled back within one, 48-47, Liverpool got possession with 30 seconds left. Instead of holding for a last shot, it instead worked it to Jack Pento, who fired a running, one-handed jumper with 20 seconds to play and converted, putting the Warriors up by one.But Starling would get the final word and finish the night with 35 points, inching within eight of B’ville’s career scoring leader, Brett Botsford, who had 1,070 points in his Bees tenure from 2005 to ’08.On Friday night, when B’ville visited Henninger, Starling would make his way past Botsford’s mark and now stood as the Bees’ all-time leading scorer – but the Black Knights would win the night, prevailing 58-47.From start to finish, Henninger’s attention was on Starling, and the pressure worked as he managed just 18 points, and though Trombley led the Bees with 19 points and Nicholson added eight points, Nate Ray had the Bees’ only other field goal.Up 26-24 at halftime, the Black Knights outscored the Bees 20-12 in the third quarter and never got caught. Nine different Black Knights got on the scoreboard, twice B’ville’s total, as Tong Mading led the way with 19 points.So the Bees hit the midway point of the regular season at 7-3, and hosts a big game against 8-2 Corcoran on Tuesday before welcoming Cicero-North Syracuse next Friday. One of the many marks of greatness for an athlete is performing to expectations, or exceeding them, even when everyone and everything is designed to stop them from doing so.Such was the case in the closing seconds of Tuesday night’s boys basketball game between Baldwinsville and Liverpool at Onondaga Community College’s’ Allyn Hall.Trailing by one and having the ball, the Bees were going to put the matter in the capable hands of J.J. Starling, even though the Warriors were going to put several defenders on him to try and impede his path to the basket. Five seconds remained when Starling inbounded the ball from the right side, in front of his team’s bench, passing it to Bo Nicholson, who, defended by Kyle Caves, immediately dished it back to Starling.Starting the dribble with his left hand, Starling crossed over to his right, split two more Liverpool defenders and, with a second to spare, laid the ball off the glass and through the net as the clock expired.Just like that, B’ville had earned a 50-49 victory, had improved its overall record to 7-2, and Starling had another entry in his growing ledger of legend.last_img read more

Crazy.As a No. 10 seed. Crazier.Now the Orange is in the Elite 8 after staving off Gonzaga in a hectic last 11.2 seconds. Craziest.Syracuse lives another day, and so do the fun facts.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHere are 10 things about Virginia (29-7, 13-5) that, if you don’t know, now you know:1. Virginia said “Nah,” to Dr. SeussThe University of Virginia denied Dr. Seuss admittance and, rumor has it, he named the fictional town of “Whoville” as a pun off the University’s nickname of the “Hoos.” UVA got the last laugh, though. The school nickname is the Cavaliers, but the students unofficially adopted the Wahoos, a fish that can drink its weight in water, as its second mascot after opposing fans jeered it at a football game.2. Quoth the RavenEdgar Allen Poe briefly attended UVA. He registered in February and said, “Nevermore” in December.3. Can’t knock the hustleUVA has never awarded an honorary degree. Official policy states degrees from the university may “only be earned.”4. Trust me, I’m a doctorCharles T. Pepper, the dude who Dr. Pepper is named after, attended the university. Other famous alumni: Woodrow Wilson, Tina Fey, Robert F. Kennedy, Katie Couric, Georgia O’Keefe and the cofounders of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman.5. Young moolah, babyVirginia is the third most expensive Elite Eight school to attend for students without in-state advantages. The check comes to an aorta-tightening $59,498, per the school site’s estimate. It falls behind only Notre Dame and Villanova, each private schools with $60,000-plus semesterly limb hacks.6. Run the Campus (Bros)Women weren’t accepted into school until the Class of 1970. In 1969, a UVA governing board voted to gradually allow females onto “the grounds,” as UVA students call it, by proposing to admit qualified wives and daughters of staff. UVA administrators said the school would further increase the number of female students over 10 years with a student population cap of 35 percent. Then four women said — and I believe this is a direct quote — “This is whack,” and filed a lawsuit. One year later, the bro era ended.7. Secret Societies that aren’t secret/have Wikipedia pagesThe name of UVA’s oldest secret society is Eli Banana. If you’re an Eli Banana, you can’t tell anyone you’re an Eli Banana until you D-I-E.8. Apparently tremendous foliageAccording to the university’s own magazine, the No. 1 reason to love UVA’s campus in fall is not the Shenandoah National Park, Monticello Wine Trail or Ragged Mountains. It’s … leaves! Which no other campus has during autumn, I guess.9. The Honor SystemAfter a professor was shot to death on The Lawn at the center of campus while attempting to resolve a conflict between two students in 1842, UVA students founded an honor code. That was the pinnacle of conflict because tensions between teachers and students, mostly wealthy from southern plantations, were always high. Nowadays the code is simple: Don’t lie, cheat or steal. And one conviction on these violations leads to expulsion.10. Dick the MockingbirdThomas Jefferson, who founded the school, thought of mockingbirds as “superior beings in the form of a bird,” according to Jefferson’s official historian’s site. He had several pet mockingbirds, but liked “Dick” the best. According to the legend, Dick flew freely around the room, ate crumbs from Jefferson’s lips and literally sang him to sleep during siesta. #SquadGoals.
