first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Sheffield Utd manager Wilder leaps to defence of McGoldrickby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSheffield United manager Chris Wilder has leapt to the defence of David McGoldrick.The 31-year-old was criticised for his wastefulness in front of goal during last weekend’s loss to Southampton.He missed Saturday’s win over Sheffield United with a groin strain, and Wilder stuck up for the 31-year-old when speaking after the game.He said: “So what does he do? He has a finishing session on his own and then goes back out to have another finishing session, because he’s trying to improve his skills and get that aspect of his game out of his system. It was then, he tweaked his groin. “But that tells you what kind of boy he is. An international player. Any sort of negativity or criticism towards him is ridiculous, because he gives everything for this football club and is brilliant for us.”I think we’ve got to be careful as a football club, because of the results and the way we’ve played, that we don’t put too much pressure on our players.”A couple of things got flagged up to me (after losing to Southampton). This team, where they’ve come from, they don’t deserve 70 per cent report. They deserve 100 per cent support.” last_img read more

Tone and terms of missing murdered women inquiry will be critical Wally

first_imgThe Canadian PressOTTAWA – A former B.C. attorney general who led the province’s Missing Women Commission of Inquiry says the federal government must strike the right tone and clearly define the terms for its own study of missing and murdered Indigenous women.Wally Oppal conducted hearings and published a 2012 report on how authorities handled cases involving missing and murdered women in the wake of the Robert Pickton case. Pickton is a serial killer convicted in 2007 of the murders of six women and charged in the deaths of 20 others.Oppal says the incoming Liberal government must determine what kind of inquiry it will conduct to ensure it is proactive in nature.“I would think that if you’re going to have an inquiry, you don’t need to have one of the type that we had, where the police were cross-examined for endless days because one of our tasks was to find out what the police did wrong during the Pickton years,” Oppal said.“I think if they’re going to have one, they should have an inquiry that goes to the various communities and the centres, a commissioner or group of commissioners, to get the voice of the communities.“It never hurts to talk to the communities to get their views and to bring them on side.”Oppal also says the Grits should take previous inquiries into account to ensure the new investigation does not retrace old ground.In their election platform, the Liberals committed to “immediately” starting a national public inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada.The party said it would seek recommendations for governments, law enforcement and others to help “solve these crimes and prevent future ones.”It also committed to spending $40 million on the study over two years.Oppal said it will be important for the government to spend wisely.“You could not have the type of inquiry that we had, where we had witnesses being called and being examined, you couldn’t do that for $40 million across the country,” he said. “The moment you announce a national inquiry, the lawyers are going to line up. So you have to be careful as to how you’re going to spend the money.”last_img read more

Football Urban Meyer names Parris Campbell Ohio States best playmaker and current

OSU then-redshirt sophomore wide receiver Parris Campbell (21) scores a touchdown during the second half of the Buckeyes game against Rutgers on Oct. 1. The Buckeyes won 58-0. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorOhio State seems to already have someone in mind to replace Curtis Samuel at the H-back position. On Tuesday, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer announced redshirt junior Parris Campbell is the leading man for the potential role of hybrid-back.“We moved Parris inside a little bit, and he’s dynamic,” Meyer said. “He was a running back in high school. Big dude that can run and catch — he’s that guy right now.”Although Campbell received the nod as the current H-back favorite, Meyer said redshirt sophomore K.J. Hill has also been in the mix, although the team is still experimenting with moving players around at various positions. As arguably one of the most important positions on the field for the Buckeyes, there will be lofty expectations placed on the shoulders of whoever gets the starting H-back job.Samuel, a now potential second-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, was the epitome of dynamic. With 865 yards receiving and 771 yards on the ground, combined with 15 total touchdowns, it was easy to name the Brooklyn, New York, native as the best player on the Scarlet and Gray offense last season.Now, with Samuel gone, OSU has a tough choice to make — take a player who’s been at a different position previously and make him an H-back, or mold a newcomer into the role. Even with Campbell as the current frontrunner, Meyer also named him as one of the leading wide receivers currently.“Well Parris is … I’d put Parris No. 1,” Meyer said. “I’d put K.J. and Terry McLaurin either (No. 2) slash (No. 3). I’d push Ben Victor … he’s as talented as any I’ve ever coached. And then Austin Mack, and Johnnie Dixon’s having a good spring, so they all are. Brendon White’s actually making good plays for us. And Eric Glover-Williams, he’s just got to get everything in order.”Campbell had just 121 yards receiving, and a lowly 54 yards on the ground, although he did score a touchdown once. Mostly a kickoff return specialist and a gunner on punt coverage, there were plenty of moments he showed his speed and athleticism.However, running the ball out of the backfield and being quick enough on the inside is a whole new ballgame. Through he’s played the position in the past, trying to convert a wide receiver to running back bodes a similar challenge to making a catcher a shortstop in baseball.Still, Campbell is in Meyer’s good graces, and could be taking snaps from both the backfield and out wide this season.“He’s one of my favorite players just because he’s so unselfish and goes so hard,” Meyer said. “He deserves to have a great year, and he’s one of our best playmakers right now.” read more

Jose Mourinho should knuckle down at Man Utd – Tim Sherwood

first_imgBlackburn Rovers legend and former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood says Jose Mourinho should “knuckle down and create a positive vibe” at Manchester United, stating that he needs to create a positive air around the club in order to have a successful season.Manchester United boss Mourinho couldn’t add another central defender to his ranks before the wrap of transfer window, even after a lengthy spell chasing Leicester’s Harry Maguire and a speed Deadline Day chase for Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin.Speaking to Sky Sports, Sherwood said:“Most managers don’t spend the amount of money in a lifetime that he has in the last two seasons. He’s been very fortunate to have been given the funds at one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I can’t understand why any manager, with that backing, is ever disgruntled.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding ar Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I think Jose needs to get in front of the camera in a press conference and send a message to the players saying, ‘This is what we’ve got, I believe in you and we will push Man City a lot closer this season.’“As a manager, when you sit in front of the media, you are not only talking to your fans and players, you are also talking to the board and I think he’s got to stop talking to the board now. There’s nothing you can do now, the window is closed, he has to carry on, knuckle down and get the best results for his club. He needs to send out a positive vibe.“He’s got [Victor] Lindelof, [Eric] Bailly, [Chris] Smalling or [Phil] Jones, they are all international footballers and they are now thinking that they aren’t really wanted there. The manager tried to sign a centre-back, wasn’t allowed to do it and he’s almost been left with us. Now is the time to knuckle down and get on with it and start sending a positive message about the whole club.”last_img read more
