Newcastle Frustrate Man City’s Title Hopes

first_imgManchester City’s title hopes suffered a huge blow as Newcastle came from a goal down to record a remarkable victory over the defending champions at St James’ Park.Two defensive lapses cost Pep Guardiola’s side the chance to cut Liverpool’s lead at the top of the Premier League to one point. The Reds face Leicester at home on Wednesday.City could not have got off to a better start when Sergio Aguero’s hooked home after only 24 seconds.The Argentine also had a goal disallowed soon after when referee Paul Tierney adjudged Kevin De Bruyne had delivered a free-kick before he gave him the signal. The Belgian was booked as a consequence.Guardiola’s side rarely troubled Magpies keeper Martin Dubravka thereafter, and Rafael Benitez’s men grew in belief.The home support erupted in the 66th minute when Salomon Rondon instinctively fired in after connecting with Isaac Hayden’s header from 12 yards out.And the match turned on its head in the 78th minute when the Magpies were awarded a penalty after Fernandinho – overplaying at the back – fouled Sean Longstaff in the area after being robbed of possession.Matt Ritchie waited more than two minutes as City keeper Ederson received treatment, before firing his spot-kick beyond the reach of the Brazilian.RelatedPremier League Review: Aguero Hattrick Sends City Twelve Points ClearJanuary 20, 2018In “England”Another slip, Liverpool?

The Lineup: Edmonton Oilers test top-notch start against Philadelphia Flyers in week of Oct. 14

first_imgFour players — Draisaitl, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Mark Scheifele — scored six points over the last week. Neal’s high-flying week also saw him score five goals in just three games.In Patrick Marleau’s return to the Sharks’ lineup, he’s racked up two goals and three points, contributing in both appearances. San Jose is also 2-0 with Marleau back in the tank.MUST-SEE: Marleau makes emotional return to Shark Tank The Oilers and Hurricanes quickly rose to the top with historic starts, and the Sabres aren’t far behind after securing points in each of their first five games. There’s no need to panic if your team stumbled through the first two weeks, though. It’s still early, but with over 50 games coming up in Week 3, things could start to change quickly.MORE: Carolina off to best start in franchise historyGame of the WeekWednesday, Oct. 16 — Philadelphia Flyers at Edmonton OilersEdmonton will return home for a game against the Flyers on Wednesday, who will be coming off a game against the Calgary Flames the night before. So far, the Flyers have relied heavily on 21-year-old goaltender Carter Hart, who earned his first career shutout against the Devils last week. But how will head coach Alain Vigneault manage Hart and backup goalie Brian Elliot on the short trip to Alberta?Wow, Carter Hart.Just wow.pic.twitter.com/FiSTy168Pe— Sporting News Canada (@sportingnewsca) October 10, 2019Philadelphia will show their true mettle against forces of nature Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid in a benchmark test, whether Hart or Elliot plays between the pipes at Rogers Place.Milestone watchTuukka Rask reaches 500 games played with just two more appearances in net for the Bruins this upcoming week. Rask already holds Boston’s franchise record for most games played by a goalie.Steven Stamkos is four goals away from 400 in his career. The Lightning play three games in the upcoming week — plenty of opportunities for No. 91 to reach his mark.Patrice Bergeron needs just five more assists to reach 500 in his 16th NHL season.Both Mike Smith and Brian Elliott still need two shutouts for 40 total in their careers. Neither netminder has established themselves as starts on new teams this fall, though, making it unlikely — but not impossible — they put together two more shutdown efforts in the next week.In his next appearance, Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist will tie Gump Worsley (860) for 11th on NHL’s all-time games played list among netminders.Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice needs just one more win to join the 700-win club among coaches.Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both remain tied with Jari Kurri (7) for the most overtime goals in Oilers’ franchise history.The Rocket Richard race is on, and James Neal (7), Auston Matthews (6) and Anthony Mantha (6) could be the first skaters to score 10 goals this season if they maintain their current scoring pace.Few unbeaten teams remainFour teams remain unbeaten in regulation: the Oilers, Buffalo Sabres, Colorado Avalanche and Philadelphia Flyers. The Sabres lost their Oct. 7 game against the Blue Jackets in overtime. Edmonton has played the most games of the remaining undefeated teams, while the Flyers only played their third game of the season Saturday.OILERS: McDavid, Draisaitl’s chemistry stronger than everThe only question that remains: who’ll remain standing after this week’s matchups?Week 3 reactionsThere has been a lot of talk about the season’s early successes, but the New Jersey Devils still lack a winning effort. Head coach John Hynes’ team — despite being one of the league’s most improved clubs on paper — has gone 0-3-2 through its first five games; New Jersey has lost three times in regulation, including twice in blowout fashion, as well as two times in the shootout. Also, Jack Hughes still remains without his first NHL point five games in and the team ranks 28th in goals for, but every team below them has played at least two fewer games.Could Hynes find himself on the hot seat soon? It’s still early, but the Devils will need to pick up their pace of play quickly to right the ship.Rangers rookie Kaapo Kakko scored his first career goal on Oct. 12 on a nifty backhand shot past Henrik Lundqvist.

Predators sign Austin Watson to long-term contract following complicated 2018-19 season

first_imgThe Predators are keeping Austin Watson around for a while.Nashville signed the forward to a three-year, $4.5 million contract, the team announced Thursday. The #Preds have signed forward Austin Watson to a three-year, $4.5 million contract >> https://t.co/hOvBMosXCf— Nashville Preds PR (@PredsPR) November 1, 2019Watson, 27, has one goal and one assist in 12 games played this year but is two years removed from a 14-goal season in 2017-18.”Austin is the ultimate team player and we look forward to continuing to see him thrive and be an impactful member of our team,” Predators general manager David Poile said in a statement. “The Predators organization continues to support Austin and his family and are pleased to take this next step forward with them. His hard work, coupled with a caring environment has him in a good place to be successful on and off the ice. Austin sticks up for his teammates and does whatever is necessary to help this team win hockey games.”The Predators are known as a team with depth on all four of their lines and Watson is certainly a part of that, however he was limited to 37 games last season after he was suspended for 18 following a domestic incident with his girlfriend. The suspension was reduced from 27 games following the ruling of an arbitrator. The incident was also called into question later when Watson’s girlfriend made a statement saying he did not physically or mentally harm her.Watson also violated the NHL’s substance abuse and behavioral health program, and received a suspension that was related to ongoing alcohol abuse. Since then, though, Watson has stayed out of trouble and the Predators continue to stand behind him by extending his contract.”My family and I love Nashville and are excited to continue to be a part of this organization,” Watson said. “I am grateful for the support provided to us by the Nashville Predators, my teammates and the entire city of Nashville, and am excited to continue to move forward with the franchise in our pursuit of the Stanley Cup.”last_img read more

Hamilton Green and his pension

first_imgDear Editor,Reading the recent article in the newspapers about ‘Hamilton Green on his pension’, I first discounted it as the utterances of a mentally confused octogenarian. But then when I read the feature ‘History will not be kind to Hamilton Green’, I felt the need to add my ‘two bits’. Mr Green speaks glibly about a period of drought for himself and his family of almost 25 years, referring to the period from 1992 when he was ousted from the position of Prime Minister due to his party’s loss at the elections. What drought is he talking about? He seems to think that people are unaware of the facts.Since becoming Mayor in 1994, Mr Green has lived a Cadillac lifestyle, one which no other mayor in the world gets, but one that is more akin to the standard of serving heads of state and government, even though the Council always claimed to be cash-strapped.Does Mr Green consider as austere all the bodyguards and security at his residence? His gardeners, cooks, chauffeurs, handymen and large administrative staff? Does he consider jetting first class to the farthest corners of the world frequently for 21 years as drought? Does he consider being provided with all-expenses-paid vehicles just being buoyant? Surely, he could not be serious. And all of this munificence was not provided by his wife, children, and many kind friends, as he is seeking to imply; but by the poor ratepayers of Georgetown.And then he comes to the point of persons being crudely removed from office. But we need not go far back; let us look at his recent sojourn at the Central Housing & Planning Authority, which resulted in the departure of the CEO and so many other officials from that entity.And let us look at his days at the Council, where he got rid of two female Town Clerks, an Engineer, and so many others.Will the President, due to his wisdom and sense of justice, give them and their spouses the ‘fair deal’ that he has given to Green and his family? If indeed his wife was made to suffer because of politics, then she should be given some recompense; but so, too, should those who suffered under Green’s hand.Mr Green talks about him finally being given a liveable pension, but what about the thousands of other pensioners? Don’t they deserve a liveable pension also, or do they need to be loyal party hacks to even get a fraction of the nearly 2 million a month that he is getting? Will they ever get a pension at 7/8 of the current salaries of their successors in whichever position they held?And then he goes on to sing his favourite tune — and that is to blame the PPP for all of his misfortunes. Should he not blame his party instead, for removing him from parliament in 1992 and thus disqualifying him from a parliamentary pension?All in all, now that Mr Green is in the departure lounge, I hope he donates most of his super pension to charity, and to the families that he wronged or destroyed as a sort of reimbursement for his misdeeds.Sincerely,Jason Howardlast_img read more
