Stalemate in Madrid Derby

first_imgReal Madrid failed to win for a second straight game and missed the chance to go top of La Liga as they drew at home with city rivals Atletico Madrid yesterday. Real, beaten by Sevilla in midweek, could have overtaken Barcelona, who drew against Athletic Bilbao earlier. Welshman Gareth Bale volleyed an effort narrowly wide before being replaced at half-time because of injury. Atletico’s best chance fell to Antoine Griezmann, but the Frenchman’s dinked shot was saved by Thibaut Courtois. The Belgium goalkeeper’s former Chelsea team-mate Diego Costa was a peripheral figure and has now gone 16 league games without a goal.Real were the better side in the second half but did not fully test goalkeeper Jan Oblak, who smothered Marco Asensio’s shot and palmed away Dani Carvajal’s strike. As the home supporters got frustrated, chants of “Ronaldo, Ronaldo” were clearly audible in the second half. Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo left the club to join Juventus in the summer.The Champions League holders return to European action on Tuesday with a trip CSKA Moscow, before Atletico, who won the Europa League last season, host Club Brugge the following day.

Arsenal Appoint Ex-captain, Arteta as Head Coach

first_imgMikel-Arteta He will take over as Gunners boss on Sunday, leaving Freddie Ljungberg in interim charge for the trip to Everton – another of Arteta’s former clubs – on Saturday (today).Arsenal are 10th in the Premier League with 22 points.“We all know there is a lot of work to be done to achieve that but I am confident we’ll do it,” added Arteta.“I’m realistic enough to know it won’t happen overnight, but the current squad has plenty of talent and there is a great pipeline of young players coming through from the academy.”Arteta’s coaching team has not yet been announced.Ljungberg has won once in five matches since being appointed on a caretaker basis on 29 November, and the Swede called for some clarity on the situation after Sunday’s 3-0 home defeat by champions Manchester City.The Gunners have now gone six games without a win at Emirates Stadium, their longest run without a home victory since 1995. Arsenal are seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, after five victories in 17 matches this season.Former midfielder Arteta, who made 150 appearances for the Gunners between 2011 and 2016 and captained the side, was linked with replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates in 2018 before the club appointed Emery.Before joining Arsenal, Arteta spent six years at Everton, making 209 appearances. The Toffees are without a permanent manager since Marco Silva was dismissed on December 6, and also showed interest in the Spaniard.Earlier in his career, Arteta spent two years at Scottish Premiership side Rangers before joining Real Sociedad in 2004.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Arsenal have appointed their former captain Mikel Arteta as head coach on a three-and-a-half-year deal.The 37-year-old won the FA Cup twice in a five-year career with the Gunners and succeeds fellow Spaniard Unai Emery, who was sacked in November.Arsenal sack Unai Emery: Manager leaves after 18 months in chargeArsenal sack manager Unai Emery after picking up just four Premier League wins this season.Arteta had been working as a coach under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, joining the club in 2016 after retiring as a player.“We need to be competing for the top trophies in the game,” Arteta said.“That’s been made very clear to me in my discussions with owners, Stan and Josh Kroenke and the senior people from the club.”last_img read more

Syracuse attack gives balanced yet inefficient performance in home loss to Clemson

first_imgThe Syracuse offense passed the eye test, but statistically was not up to par.SU setter Gosia Wlaszczuk spread the ball around, but the Orange’s hitters were not consistently converting sets into points.“Our offense was not good,” SU head coach Leonid Yelin said. “How it could be good if its (middle blocker Monika Salkute), out of 41 swings, .098 (hitting percentage)? If it’s (outside hitter Silvi Uattara), out of 40, .025 overall? I mean, this numbers, it’s not good.”Syracuse (8-16, 1-11 Atlantic Coast) fell to Clemson (17-9, 5-7) in four sets Friday night in the Women’s Building with a balanced yet inefficient offensive attack. For the first time in ACC play, four players scored double-digit points for the Orange. Right-side hitter Stacey Smith stepped up to provide SU with early offense as SU won the first set.“It maybe seems like (the offense was better) because one of our players, which we’re really pleased she stood up today, is Stacey,” Yelin said. “I think offensively, this was probably her best match.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSmith had 11 kills on 24 attempts as well as two block assists to give her 12 points, tied for second-most on the team.During a key run in the first set in which SU came back from down three to tie the set at 16, Smith had four kills and a block assist.“It was amazing to have one more player to go to,” Wlaszczuk said of Smith offering her another option on the offensive end.Wlaszczuk seemed to make every right decision in the first set in deciding whom to pass to. Yelin said he “helped” her more than he usually does, trying to get her to kill a bad habit.Being new to the setter position, Wlaszczuk is more likely to set the players she is most comfortable with, notably Uattara and Salkute. When she does, the SU offense becomes predictable, allowing defenses to set up double and triple blocks on the primary Orange attackers.Against Clemson, Yelin told Wlaszczuk not to set Uattara and Salkute when they were in the back row and for the most part, she listened.“I said, ‘Leave them alone, I will tell you when it’s time, you can get in,’ and she did,” Yelin said.Senior middle blocker Lindsay McCabe was another recipient of Wlaszczuk’s new mentality, recording eight kills on 23 attempts. She also had eight block assists.McCabe had three kills and three block assists in the first set, when the SU offense looked to be at its best.“I think Gosia was just delivering me the ball really well and that makes my job easy,” McCabe said.Her play was less consistent for the rest of the match, something McCabe blamed on a lack of mental awareness.The distribution of points early in the game should have made Salkute and Uattara’s jobs easier, but neither was able to finish consistently.Uattara, SU’s primary offensive weapon, didn’t receive the most sets for the fourth time in ACC play and said she saw fewer double and triple blocks than usual due to Wlaszczuk’s sharing. When she got the ball, Uattara simply wasn’t finishing.As Yelin said, while it may have looked good, SU’s offense did not perform efficiently.As a team, SU hit .128 and made 30 attack errors, six more than Clemson despite five fewer attempts.Yelin looked back at the game positively, pleased with his team’s drive and Wlaszczuk’s growth as a setter.Said Yelin: “She’s doing a phenomenal job for somebody who’s never done this.“That’s what we keep telling all of them.” Comments Published on November 7, 2014 at 11:33 pm Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Daybreak poll analyzes likely outcome of election

first_imgA poll conducted by the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics in partnership with the Los Angeles Times is applying a new approach to tracking political opinions. The USC/Los Angeles Times “Daybreak” Poll implements a rating scale to ask a panel of approximately 3,000 participants questions about their outlooks on the presidential race.The poll, which launched in July 2016 and will run through the November election, is part of the Understanding America Survey managed by the Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research. The UAS is a panel at USC comprised of 5,500 individuals representing the United States. The study is an ‘Internet’ panel, meaning that participants use computers, smartphones and tablets to engage in the survey. Respondents answer questions about a variety of topics, including their household demographics, health, retirement plans and thoughts on the election. The UAS election panel consists of around 3,000 randomly recruited participants from the wider panel who have agreed to answer questions about the election. Each day, around 400 individuals out of those 3,000 are asked to state the likelihood that they will vote in the election, the candidate that they will likely vote for and the chance they think each candidate has of winning. The results of the poll are weighted to take into account demographic characteristics, such as race, gender and income, from the U.S. Census Current Population, and adjusted to the 2012 presidential election outcome based on how participants voted back then. The results are regularly updated online, along with averages of all the prior week’s responses. The Daybreak Poll exhibits a distinguishing characteristic from most polls, which will ask people which candidate they prefer and exclude people who are undecided from any analysis of candidate support. The Daybreak Poll, however, asks participants to rate, using a 0-100 scale, their chances of voting for Clinton, Trump or another candidate. Because of this, every participant will influence the results, which provides insight into how uncertain voters are currently feeling. Unruh Institute Director Dan Schnur said that this method allows for better monitoring of how voters’ opinions are changing. “Our poll isn’t simply measuring the preference for candidates, but rather the intensity of voter support,” Schnur said. “It’s become increasingly clear over the past few months that while Clinton enjoys support from a larger number of voters in this election, Trump supporters are much more fervent in their support of his candidacy.” Some have expressed concerns that the Daybreak Poll shows a Republican bias in terms of candidate support, because of how it factors in the way people voted in the 2012 election. The poll weighs the sample of participants so that 25 percent of the sample are people who claimed to have voted for 2012 Republican party nominee Mitt Romney and 27 percent for President Barack Obama. But problems can occur with self-reported past voting when people aren’t honest about how they voted. Some polls have revealed that the percentage of people who — after an election — say that they voted for the winner exceeds the winner’s actual vote. This weighting could potentially cause too many Republican voters to be included the sample, giving Donald Trump a boost in support. Jill Darling, the survey director of the UAS, said that all pollsters vary in terms of how they choose to collect and model their data. She doesn’t think that there is a definitively accurate technique to poll voters. “One study found that people who had not voted for an incumbent were less likely to participate in a subsequent study about election results,” Darling said. “We can’t know if people are under-reporting votes for a non-incumbent, or whether the sample itself may just not have enough of those people [who didn’t vote for an incumbent] in it.”Some USC students believe that while the poll is useful, it does have certain drawbacks. Ali Main, a junior studying broadcast journalism, said that although she consults the poll frequently, she doesn’t think it’s necessarily indicative of the outcome of the actual election. “The Daybreak Poll is definitely interesting because it constantly surveys the same panel of voters,” Main said. “However, I think some of the polling choices, including weighing the sample based on people’s self-reported voting in 2012 and using the 0 to 100 rating scale and the effects that these choices have on the data prove that the results of any one poll are not enough to accurately predict what will happen on election day. I look at the results of this poll on a regular basis, but I can’t base my thoughts on the state of the election on polling data alone.”last_img read more

Peru End Brazil’s 17-match Unbeaten Run

first_imgPeru ended Brazil’s 17-match unbeaten run with a 1-0 friendly win in Los Angeles.Luis Abram scored the only goal in the 84th minute, inflicting the first defeat in over a year on the five-time world champions.The introduction of forwards Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Lucas Paqueta and Bruno Henrique at half-time made little difference to an off-colour Brazil. Brazil had beaten Peru 3-1 in the Copa America final in July.Meanwhile, Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez scored a 22-minute hat-trick as Argentina beat Mexico 4-0 in a friendly in San Antonio.Paris St-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes scored the other goal from the penalty spot as Argentina, who were without Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Angel di Maria, completed the scoring in the first half.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
