EPL: Newcastle in takeover talks with Saudi Crown Prince after Man Utd bids

first_imgMike Ashley is in talks to sell Newcastle to the Saudi Arabia sovereign-wealth fund, it has been claimed. The influential Wall Street Journal are reporting the Saudi’s are considering buying the Tyneside club for £340m. It is the latest stage of Saudi Arabia focusing on sports and entertainment as part of economic reforms to improve the countries standing. Amanda Staveley watches on from the stands The WSJ are reporting that the prospective buyer is the Public Investment Fund, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s key investment vehicle. Newcastle fans will be sceptical after several years of aborted or false claims being made from parties said to want to buy the club.There have been many businessmen trying to scrape together the cash to meet Ashley’s demands, but he has pledged only to sell if to someone with the clout to invest and revamp the club.The financier Amanda Staveley is mentioned by the WSJ as organising investors to join the buy-out. She has lurked for a couple of years, including claiming bids had been made, but never been able to strike a deal. A Saudi buy out would be controversial and reopen the debate about the nation’s “sportswashing” using events like golf and boxing to improve the country’s image.

Pilkington blow for Canaries

first_img Press Association The Republic of Ireland international will not be back in contention until the new year after sustaining a grade two tear. News on Robert Snodgrass’ knee problem is slightly better, with Hughton saying he will be out for a few weeks but not as long as Pilkington. Norwich manager Chris Hughton expects Anthony Pilkington’s hamstring injury to sideline the midfielder for up to six weeks.center_img “Anthony has had a scan which shows a grade two strain which usually means five or six weeks out,” reported Hughton telling the club’s annual general meeting. “Robert came back from international duty with Scotland and felt his knee at the beginning of training on Friday. “He travelled with us to Newcastle as we hoped it would settle down, but unfortunately it didn’t, and he could be out for a few weeks but not as long as Anthony.” Striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe) is expected to be fit for the home match against Swansea in mid-December but the comebacks of Mark Bunn (ankle), Alex Tettey (ankle) and Elliott Bennett (cruciate ligament) will all be longer. Injuries have not helped the Canaries’ run of form which has seen them win just once in their last six matches, dropping them to 16th in the Barclays Premier League. “You go through good periods where you’ve got no injuries, you keep doing things the same, and then you can pick up some,” added Hughton, in comments reported by the Norwich Evening News. “It’s just unfortunate we’re going through one of those periods at the moment, but we have to be able to cope with that, and it’ll give others an opportunity. “I’m not going to sit here and say I’m completely happy with our performances. “Are we where I’d hope we would be at the moment? No, we’re not. It’s my responsibility to make sure we do something about that, starting with Crystal Palace on Saturday.” last_img read more

Racing Point docked points, fined over copying Mercedes parts

first_img(BBC) – Racing Point have been docked 15 points and fined 400 000 euros (£361 000) for illegally copying parts of last year’s Mercedes car.The ruling came following a protest by Renault against the 2020 Racing Point, arguing that they had copied the brake ducts used by Mercedes in 2019.F1’s governing body FIA upheld the protest in part in handing down the fine and points deduction.Racing Point can appeal but have not indicated whether they will.The ruling hangs on the stipulation in the rules that teams must design specific parts of the cars themselves.Renault argued that the front and rear brake ducts of the Racing Point were too similar to those on the 2019 Mercedes to fit this description and that the information could not have been obtained other than by a transfer of intellectual property.Brake ducts are key parts in the aerodynamics of an F1 car, as they help control the airflow off the front wing, increasing downforce.Mercedes admitted they had supplied information about the front and rear brake ducts of their 2019 car, but this was allowed because these were not listed parts at the time.The FIA decided that the front brake ducts of the Racing Point were legal as, although they had been copied from Mercedes, they had been used on the 2019 car.But a rule change between 2019 and 2020 added brake ducts to the category of so-called “listed parts” that teams have to design themselves.Stewards found that Racing Point had used computer design data legally supplied by Mercedes to Racing Point in 2019 to design their rear brake ducts with “minimal changes” and fit them to their 2020 car.As the parts had not been used on the 2019 car, they were not permitted to be used in 2020, because they were a Mercedes design, not Racing Point’s, and had not been an integral part of last year’s car.The FIA said that had Racing Point asked whether they could use the 2019 Mercedes rear brake ducts on their car this year, they would have been told they could not. But they did not ask whether this was allowed.And the FIA found that “on a fair reading” of the rules, the rear brake ducts on the 2020 Racing Point “were designed in large part by Mercedes”.The FIA found that Racing Point “minimised the significance of the input it received from Mercedes and overstated the amount of work it actually did. Mercedes gave Racing Point a large proportion of their brake duct designs. Racing Point then made relatively minor changes to them.”The protest covered the first four grands prix of the season, and the FIA stewards said the points deduction was “intended to penalise the potential advantage Racing Point may have accrued in the design process”.Although the design process has been declared illegal, the stewards ruled that Racing Point are able to run the brake ducts for the rest of this season.The penalty “covers the entire process of (non)-designing of the brake ducts and making them available for use during the whole 2020 season”, even though their use “remains an infringement” of the regulations. The points deduction and fine are considered to be a sufficient punishment for the offence.FIA head of single-seaters Nikolas Tombazis said the governing body intended to introduce new rules to prevent teams following the route Racing Point have taken in designing effective copies of other cars in the future.Tombazis said the new rules would “prevent teams from using extensive parts of photos to copy whole portions of other cars in the way that Racing Point has done.“We will still accept individual components to be copied in local areas, but we don’t want the whole car to be fundamentally a copy of another car.”last_img read more

Rainoil Tennis: Imeh Beats Atseye to End Long Wait for National…

first_imgBy Duro IkhazuagbeAfter failing to win four national finals in the last 12 months, Joseph Imeh last Saturday night defeated defending champion, Henry Atseye, 6-3, 6-2 to win the 2nd edition of the Rainoil Open Tennis Championship at the Ikoyi Club in Lagos.It was a sweet revenge and a happy ending of a jinx for Imeh who fell as the same stage in the Rainoil final at the Lagos Country Club, Ikeja, last year. Without doubt, Imeh was the star of the night as he showed from the first game of the first set that he was out to avenge that 2017 defeat to Atseye. He was helped further by the return of Atseye’s left knee injury that hampered his movement on the Centre Court of the Ikoyi Club.Imeh, the Nigeria Tennis Federation top ranked player, won all his first three serves against Atseye. The defending champions who made a giant comeback to defeat Abdulmumin Babalola and Sylvester Emmanuel in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively however responded by winning his first three games as well with big servesImeh thereafter went 4-3 up before getting a crucial break at 5-3 with Atseye sending his Roger Federer-like one-handed backhand way out.He rounded off the set with a drop shot which drew resounding applause from tennis fans which include Ikoyi Club Chairman Tunde Akinleye, who thronged the venue of the final of the nine-day tournament.With Atseye struggling with another sprained ankle and bandaged left knee,  Imeh got a break from the start of the second set and there was no holding back for the former South Africa-based junior international as he rounded off the match 6-2.He got N500, 000 as winner’s prize money while Atseye pocketed N250, 000.The real drama of the day was in the women’s singles final where Abuja-based Blessing Samuel came back from the dead to outlast Christie Agugbom, 2-6, 7-5, 6-0 to pocket the N400, 000 champion’s prize. Agugbom got N200, 000.After winning the first set 6-2 and was leading the second 5-2 and was on a match-point to smile away with the top prize Agugbom capitulated.She failed to cap the brilliant start when it mattered most. Samuel seized the momentum from her to go all the way with 11-0 games victory to end the set 7-5. Samuel won the third set 6-0 as Agugbom became a shadow of the player who won the first set 6-2.The victory was also a good one for Samuel who had lost in the same final of this same tournament on clay to Sarah Adegoke last year at the Lagos Country Club in Ikeja.“I was on match point and instead of me to keep firing; I was playing safe, praying to win. She (Samuel) was a fighter because most players would have given up,” Agugbom later admitted.Agugbom and Samuel paired to win the women’s doubles 6-3, 6-3 at the expense of Stella Udokwelu and Ebere Fortune while Albert Bikom and Babalola clinched the men’s doubles by defeating Sylvester Emmanuel and Christian Paul 7-6 (4), 3-6, 10-4.Group Managing Director, Rainoil, Dr. Gabriel Ogbechie promised to make the tournament bigger in subsequent edition.He noted that tennis is one of the most lucrative sports with global appeal and urged individuals and corporate bodies to invest in the sport which among other benefits can take families out of poverty.“This is just Rainoil’s little way to give back to the society and help Nigerian tennis develop to an enviable standard,” he stated.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

MBB : Triche continues to cement role as second-half scorer, helps SU pull away from Red Storm

first_img Published on January 12, 2011 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img NEW YORK –– Pump fake. One dribble. Side-step. Swoosh. Repeat.Brandon Triche does it in practice. He did it at the Prudential Center to carry SU to a sloppy win Saturday over Seton Hall.And on what Triche equates to a basketball ‘stage’, Madison Square Garden, fundamental shooting was on full display in the second half Wednesday for the Syracuse guard. He did it Wednesday after one of his trademark disappearing acts in the first half in No. 4 SU’s 76-59 win over St. John’s. The sophomore guard totaled three 3-pointers, finishing the game with 15 points before SU head coach Jim Boeheim pulled him in the game’s final minutes.He knows his role as a shooting guard. A role he has amplified and embraced on Syracuse’s latest road swing.‘I am going to just have to knock down open shots,’ Triche said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUnder the MSG lights he and his Syracuse teammates love – the ones they stole from St. John’s, yet again – Triche opened up for a pivotal second half shooting performance. For the second straight game, he did the best of his work in a short amount of time, in the second half.Confidence exemplified through simple fundamentals. It was exactly what SU head coach Jim Boeheim wants to see. A brash attitude and emotion exemplified through quiet smart decisions. Point after point from knowing to be in the right spot.It’s becoming classic Triche.Yet, the head coach is still wondering why Triche doesn’t perform at a high level from the tip-off. It’s almost as if Boeheim expects it not to come, but knows he can rely on the fact Triche’s play will rise to another level. And it will in bunches.‘He doesn’t shoot the first 10 minutes,’ Boeheim said. ‘He waits to see if we need him and then he starts to play after that.’Wednesday, Triche pulled the trigger a little more than Boeheim gave credit for in the first 10 minutes. He attempted two 3-pointers in the game’s first five minutes. But from there until the half’s final minute, he didn’t attempt anything but a dunk and a layup.Kris Joseph and Scoop Jardine say they know Triche tends to play this way, as well. Drive and kicks from the two SU juniors, the team’s leading scorers on the season, are sometimes a must to get Triche going. It’s all about good shots for the team as a whole.And Triche as well. Because, sometimes without those open looks to start games, the shooting guard wanders.‘We are penetrating and kicking making the defense converge to one person,’ Joseph said of Triche’s shooting success. ‘It is a high percentage shot.’High percentage is exactly what Triche has become. In the Seton Hall and St. John’s games combined, he has shot 11-of-18 overall (61 percent) and 7-of-11 from 3 (64 percent).More important than the percentage may be the timeliness. By the time he left the game at MSG Wednesday, Triche’s eight second half points turned an 11-point lead into a 20-point blowout. The niche he has carved for himself — second half sharpshooter — was again being practiced. Sometimes via pump-fake. Sometimes via a Jardine drive-and-kick.Despite another disappearing act in the first half, Triche was there in the second half to put the game away. The selfless point guard has given up the reigns of the SU offense to Jardine, finding a new role for himself as the fundamental shooter.And for the fundamental shooter, he is just one part of the subsequent fundamental stages of SU team-ball.Said Triche: ‘Me having that ability is going to open up the floor and open up better driving lanes.’aolivero@syr.edulast_img read more

Volleyball breakdown: Wisconsin vs. Indiana

first_imgWisconsin flexed its muscles and dominated an overmatched Indiana team early Sunday morning.The Badgers (16-6, 8-4 Big Ten) used an efficient offensive performance and a stout front line to overwhelm the Hoosiers (13-11, 3-9 Big Ten) from the opening serve.Wisconsin jumped out to an early 10-3 lead in the first set behind the dominating performance of freshman Tionna Williams, who had four blocks in the first set. Wisconsin then parlayed their early defensive prowess into an offensive onslaught on the backs of sophomores Kelly Bates and Lauryn Gillis who each had four kills in the first stanza to lead the Badgers to an easy 25-16 win.The Hoosiers showed signs of life at the beginning of the second set but ultimately could not keep pace with the Badgers, who pulled away after the score was even at nine. Junior Haleigh Nelson led the charge in the second set and showed excellent precision with five kills on five attempts to down the Hoosiers 25-17.Wisconsin then made quick work of Indiana in the third set to complete one of their most complete performances of the Big Ten season by dismantling Indiana 25-12. Nelson again led the team in kills with five and was aided by junior Romana Kriskova, who had four kills of her own.Offensive player of the game: Haleigh NelsonNelson tied for the team lead with 11 kills, hitting an outstanding 56 percent. Nelson also added a service and was an imposing threat all game for the Indiana defense.Defensive player of the game: Tionna WilliamsWilliams came into the weekend as the Big Ten leader in blocks and solidified her position atop the charts with another defensive spectacle. The middle blocker finished with five blocks and wreaked havoc amongst the Indiana attackers throughout the match.QuotableNelson on her adjustments following the first set:“I just had a couple mental errors and I wasn’t coming out swinging hard like I should have, and [head coach] Kelly [Sheffield] let me know that right before the second set. I went out ready to go and I wasn’t going to let anything phase me. I was going to be there for my teammates and put more energy into them and focus more on the good and the winning and it made the match better.”Williams on her productive day:“Being able to have that many blocks I think is a result from our serves, which helps us read really well. The whole system was set up pretty well.”last_img read more
