Dutch government shut down football until September

first_imgDutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has announced that all sport in the country is banned until September 1.

The country’s stadiums will remain closed until September 1, so the 2019/20 season can be considered to be closed. “It’s tough, but we will have to make that sacrifice,” Rutte said.Advertisementcenter_img As it is a government ruling, we must now wait for the reaction of the Dutch Football Federation (KNVB), who in principle could give the Eredivisie title to Ajax, the current leader and reigning champions. However, there are a series of other matters that will still need to be resolved, such as the teams that go to the Champions League, those that would be relegated, or even finishing the season in September, although this seems improbable.

The Elephants’ Africa Cup of Nations-winning captain Toure is unhappy with the decision by AFI, led by former AC Milan and Monaco defender Cyrille Domoraud, to support Diallo. “That our players’ association has chosen to support another candidate constitutes a major fault, a serious breach of its obligations and its mission,” Toure was quoted as having told Abidjan Sports as per Afrik Foot. “No matter how hard I tried to understand, I tried to listen to Cyrille Domoraud’s arguments, I still don’t understand, but the damage is done.” AFI argues that Drogba did not deserve their support as he has not been actively involved with the players’ representative body, a claim Toure dismisses.Advertisementlast_img read more

Anything you tell me I can’t or shouldn’t do is what I want to do. “That’s who I am. That makes me happier than anything.“If I was fighting somebody I’m supposed to beat, I would probably be nervous. But because I’m fighting somebody that they think I don’t have a chance with, I’m not nervous. This is what I love, this is what I feel for.“For me, it’s a one-off. But if it turns out good or he hits me so hard that I don’t get my lip back, then we might have a rematch!“I bring speed and power, he brings explosiveness and power.”RelatedPosts Mike Tyson beats up seven prostitutes Mike Tyson to face Roy Jones Jr Klitschko drills Holyfield in gym —Tags: Comeback fightmike tysonRingTV.comlast_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 keys to Syracuse’s blowout win over Central Michigan

first_imgMOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — Syracuse buried the ghosts of its season-opening scare against Villanova with a 40-3 blowout of Central Michigan on Saturday afternoon. Here are some fast reactions from the game.Orange rushCooper Rush sent warning shots on Central Michigan’s first drive, but absorbed just as many from the Syracuse pass rush.Rush’s threats were empty ones. The Orange hardly halted. Cameron Lynch led the Orange with 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for a loss. His blitz with 12:47 left in the third quarter forced Rush into an intentional grounding penalty from the end zone, resulting in a safety.Lynch’s forced flag extended SU’s lead to 19-3 and a steady mix of blitz packages kept CMU from even threatening to come back.Covered upWhen Rush had time to throw the football, he had nowhere to put it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJulian Whigham shut down CMU’s top receiver, Courtney Williams. Brandon Reddish cleaned up underneath, wrapping up the few Chippewas’ receivers that Rush could find. Lynch nearly picked off the CMU quarterback on the hosts’ first drive.The Orange’s coverage never picked off any CMU passes — mostly because CMU receivers were barely open enough to be thrown to.No replacement for RawlsCentral Michigan’s standout running back, Thomas Rawls, didn’t play Saturday. The Chippewas had no viable alternative as Central Michigan reviewed an issue that came to the school’s attention on Friday night, according to a CMU release.The Chippewas tried a by-committee approach with Saylor Lavallii, Devon Spalding and Maurice Shoemaker-Gilmore all receiving touches. But they combined for 39 yards on the ground.CMU’s inability to replace the man who had 56 of his team’s 78 carries going into Saturday’s game forced the Chippewas to fight SU in the air — where they lost.Rawls had 278 yards and three touchdowns through two games. With five minutes left in Saturday’s game, CMU had three points.

Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press discuss discuss covering awards season during the #MeToo movement

first_imgMembers of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association sat down with students Monday to discuss their experiences as film journalists and comment on this past awards season, which included much more political activism than in past years with the rise of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.Photo by Ling Luo | Daily TrojanAccording to the panelists, covering this awards season has been different than any other because of those movements. They said that much of their coverage this season has focused on them.Jenny Cooney, host of the podcast “Aussies in Hollywood,” commented on the responsibility of the press to decide what stories to cover, especially when many of the stories start out as unverified posts on social media.“For many, many years women spoke up and nobody believed them,” Cooney said. “Now the pendulum has swung so far the other way… that anytime anybody speaks up even if it’s one woman on Facebook then everybody believes them … and then the person that’s being accused of something is still just being accused of something and yet it feels like they’ve already been tried and convicted of something in the press.”This year’s Golden Globes posed an issue for organizers, as they didn’t know what to expect from attendees in terms of activism. There were rumors that Golden Globe attendees were going to march before the event, according to Cooney. That, however, did not end up being the case.At these events, artists have used their platforms to spread political messages. While this has sometimes been met with backlash, some of the panelists said that there is nothing wrong with doing so if the opportunity is provided.“What is wrong with using this platform to say something that can raise consciousness, that can make people think?” said Silvia Bizio, a journalist who works for the Republicca Newspaper in Italy.While the Golden Globes this year were defined by many political statements, the panelists believe that this Sunday’s Oscars will be much less political.Journalist Scott Orlin, who works for Cinema Magazine Germany, believes that because the Oscars are a more prestigious award ceremony than the Golden Globes, artists are less likely to make controversial statements at the event. Cooney further mentioned what she called “Oscar fatigue,” in which the public becomes tired of hearing the same stories repeated since the beginning of the awards season, minimizing the presence of politics.Marlene Von Arx, a freelance writer in Switzerland, also questioned how long the focus on these issues would last since it is rare for issues to stay in the public eye for extended periods of time.“When will the fatigue come in?” she said. “I wonder how long it will be here to stay.”Julianne Myers, a sophomore studying public relations, said she appreciated that the panelists didn’t try to hide the challenges of their jobs.“They were talking about how sometimes they really feel like they have to struggle with publicists to try and get news and get what they want to get out of it, but also its still really beneficial because they love what they do,” she said.Morgan Miller, a sophomore studying public relations, felt hopeful about the future of women in the workplace after the panelists’ discussion on the future of the industry.“I think that when you go into the workplace, I want to feel safe … I think that will change in the future and definitely improve,” she said.last_img read more

Carabao Cup: Rashford scores stunning free-kick as Man United beat Chelsea

first_imgMarcus Rashford scored a stunning free-kick and a penalty as Manchester United knocked Chelsea out of the Carabao Cup with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.The England striker put the Red Devils in front from the spot after Daniel James was felled by Marcos Alonso inside the Blues penalty area in the 26th minute.Chelsea hauled themselves level through Michy Batshuayi after the Belgian held off four visiting defenders to drill into the bottom corner from 20 yards.But Rashford’s stunning free-kick ended Chelsea’s seven-match winning streak as they failed to get a measure of revenge on United for their 4-0 defeat on the opening day of the season.The teams have gone in opposite directions since then, with United struggling for form while Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League and joint top of their Champions League group.However, it is now three straight wins – all away from home – for United to further ease the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.In a shift from the usual Carabao Cup policy adopted the bigger clubs, Blues boss Frank Lampard rested his younger players with Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori, all central to their recent winning run, dropping out of the starting line-up.Yet both managers named strong sides, illustrating just how important they saw this match in the context of their seasons.United took a 25th-minute lead after Daniel James won a penalty, the winger getting across Marcos Alonso in the area before tumbling to the deck.Rashford may have missed a spot-kick against Norwich at the weekend, but he showed no sign of nerves as he calmly sent Willy Caballero the wrong way.Solskjaer handed a start to Brandon Williams and the teenager made his mark on Callum Hudson-Odoi after the interval, throwing the Chelsea winger over the advertising hoardings yet somehow avoiding a yellow card.Hudson-Odoi should have taken immediate revenge when Alonso crossed low into the box but he miskicked horribly in front of goal.Chelsea had built up a head of steam and Billy Gilmour’s drive was bravely blocked by Marcos Rojo before Christian Pulisic, the hat-trick hero at Burnley on Saturday, dragged a shot wide.Pulisic then sent Hudson-Odoi through with a fine ball over the top but the wideman’s dipping effort dropped too late.They got their equaliser on the hour mark, Batshuayi nodding on Caballero’s clearance before turning away from Harry Maguire.The Belgian frontman outstripped Maguire and Victor Lindelof before firing past Rojo and into the corner of Sergio Romero’s net.But Rashford settled the match in the 73rd minute in spectacular fashion, lifting his shot over the wall and underneath Caballero’s crossbar before sliding on his knees in celebration in front of a delirious away end.

Roberto Di Matteo could drop Fernando Torres for Chelsea’s trip to Juventus

first_imgRoberto Di Matteo says he would be prepared to drop Fernando Torres from the Chelsea team to face Juventus in the UEFA Champions League if it is the ‘right thing’ to do.Torres has scored just once in his last seven appearances for Chelsea and again looked out of sorts during Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion.Di Matteo is ready to make changes for Tuesday’s crucial Champions League game away to Juventus and conceded Torres was one of the players who could lose his place.He said: “Am I prepared to leave Torres out on Tuesday? I think we will have to assess the whole team and see how everybody is, and how they have recovered.“Am I prepared to leave Torres out on Tuesday? I think we will have to assess the whole team and see how everybody is, and how they have recovered.”Roberto Di MatteoQuotes of the week“A lot of players only came back Thursday afternoon or Friday from internationals in Europe and the rest of the world.“We will assess them and see what the right selection is for Tuesday. If I believe it is the right thing to do for the team, then yes.”The Chelsea boss is also aware that his team have to improve defensively after conceding 18 goals in eight games. Di Matteo added: “I think as a team we have to be better defending. You don’t defend with one player – you defend with the whole team, like you want your whole team helping when you are attacking as well.“It is a defensive organisation on the pitch that we need to look at and, as I said before, maybe I have to do some changes.“We have got bodies in midfield – the 4-2-3-1 system really helped us last season after the change (of manager) but maybe in terms of personnel we have to do something different.”Di Matteo is also at a loss to explain another dip by Chelsea during November after picking up just two points from three Premier League games.He said: “It is very difficult to explain. It is not just one year – it has been three years in a row. “You have top, top players – they play every three or four days. That amount of games can affect them, but it is not only that.“It is a challenging time when you don’t win games and you need to instil confidence in players and to the team and that is going to be a tough job.”last_img read more
