Pellegrini: We focus on all players

first_imgManchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini insists uncertainty over Wayne Rooney’s fitness will have no bearing on his plan for this weekend’s Manchester derby. Pellegrini, speaking at a press conference to preview his side’s Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle, was also asked if United did City a favour last weekend. United struck a late equaliser to claim a draw against Premier League leaders Chelsea, preventing them moving eight points clear of City. Asked if he celebrated Van Persie’s goal, Pellegrini said, laughing: “I don’t remember. At that moment, I thought the game was finished and I went to drink a glass of water. “When they told me after how the game finished I smiled.” Press Association Pellegrini claims the uncertainty does not affect his preparations as his gameplan is based on containing United’s firepower as a whole, rather focusing on any individual. Pellegrini said: “We really don’t change our way to play for some player, or other player. If it’s not Wayne Rooney it will be Angel Di Maria, Juan Mata or Robin van Persie. “They have so many creative players that they have a lot of different chances. We cannot prepare for a game talking about one player because (if) he doesn’t play we have to change all of what we do. “We really try to play with a style of play every game. “I am sure Wayne Rooney is one of the important players of Manchester United but also other players are very difficult for us.” Rooney had been expected to return for the clash at the Etihad Stadium after completing a three-match suspension. Even though United have not lost since Rooney began his ban, his comeback would give the team a lift as they tackle the champions, to whom they lost 4-1 and 3-0 last season. The 29-year-old holds the record for the most goals scored in Manchester derbies with 11 in 22 appearances. Doubt has been cast over United striker Rooney’s availability for Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash against rivals City following a report that he has suffered a foot injury. It was claimed the United and England captain was seen limping at a sponsors’ function on Monday after apparently being hurt in training. United have not commented on the report. last_img read more

Siblings arrested after bringing loaded gun to school

first_imgTwo brothers are now facing felony charges after officials say one of them brought a loaded gun onto a school campus.The incident was first reported on October 1st at Miami Palmetto Senior High School.Authorities say they were notified by the school after another student told officials that one of the brothers, Joshua Mizelle, brought a gun to school.When authorities questioned Joshua, the teen told them that he did not have a weapon on him and allowed officers to search his vehicle in the student parking lot.During the search, officials reported that they found not only a loaded handgun, but brass knuckles and two knives inside of the vehicle.At that point, Joshua was taken into custody.Authorities, however, returned to the school to take his brother Jonathan, into custody after they were informed that the brothers arrived to the school in the same vehicle.It was later determined that Jonathan was the brother responsible for bringing the weapons onto school property.During a court hearing on Friday, an attorney for Joshua told the judge that Joshua has never been in trouble with the law before this and the charges may affect his athletic career and scholarship:“What I just want to let the court know, not only has he never been in trouble before, he’s a star athlete. He has a scholarship, which unfortunately, is in jeopardy because of this thing. His whole career and his scholarship is in jeopardy.”Despite the words of the attorney, the judge reportedly stated that all actions have consequences even if Joshua is an athlete:“Those are consequences,” said Judge Orlando Prescott. “There’s always long-term consequences, good, bad and indifferent and because he’s an athlete [it] doesn’t bear anything with me.”Joshua is scheduled to be released on house arrest while Jonathan will be held in detention.Their next trial is scheduled for December 13th.last_img read more

Federer to Lose Top Spot, Miss French Open

first_imgRoger Federer will lose his world number one spot after defeat at the Miami Open – and has announced he will miss the clay court season, including the French Open.The 36-year-old, who suffered a shock 3-6 6-3 7-6 (7-4) loss to world number 175 Thanasi Kokkinakis in Miami, did not play on clay last season either. Last year, he won Wimbledon after returning from his break.The Swiss will be replaced by Rafael Nadal at the top of the new rankings.On losing his world number one position, Federer – the defending Miami champion – said: “I deserve it after this match. I feel so bad.”After the defeat, he added: “I decided not to play the clay season.”Federer, who won his 20th Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January, began in typically assured style but was worn down by Australian qualifier Kokkinakis, 21, who won in two hours 21 minutes.It was Federer’s second loss in six days – he saw a 17-match unbeaten run come to an end in a gruelling match with Juan Martin del Potro in Indian Wells last weekend.In Miami, he was up against another angular opponent in Kokkinakis, who used a vicious top-spin forehand to devastating effect.“It felt like every time I had chances, something bad happened – wrong decision making by me, good decisions from him,” he said.“It’s disappointing, I don’t know why I could never get to a level I was happy with.”  Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

WBB : Syracuse defense breaks down in blowout loss to BYU

first_img Comments Quentin Hillsman refused to use the word. Despite an early 18-2 run from Brigham Young that gave the Cougars a 15-point lead and an eventual 24-point loss for his team to dwell on during a long flight back from Hawaii, Hillsman couldn’t say his team felt demoralized.For the first time this season, Syracuse was on the wrong side of a blowout.‘We just knew we had to take one possession at a time, and we never got it going,’ Hillsman said. ‘At no point did we feel demoralized or gave up on the game because we knew we had to keep fighting and get back in the game. We just didn’t have it today.’The Orange (6-2) fell 83-59 to Brigham Young (7-2) on Saturday in the final game of the Hukilau Invitational in Laie, Hawaii. It was the second consecutive loss for SU, as it suffered an 80-74 loss to Arizona in the tournament on Friday in a bizarre game was halted twice because of power outages. BYU’s efficient performance on offense was the difference as the Cougars shot 49 percent from the field and went 11-of-26 for 42 percent from beyond the arc.Hillsman said after the game against BYU that having to be in the gym longer than expected the day before, combined with not having much time for game preparation, added some difficulty to preparing for the Cougars. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I think one thing that was tough was that quick turnaround,’ Hillsman said. ‘We didn’t have a lot of time to prepare as far as game prep is concerned, and they had a day off in between. I think that was a big advantage going into the game.’Hillsman said BYU was quick in transition and kept the ball moving constantly to keep the Orange’s defense off balance and spread out. The Cougars moved quickly up the floor and shot well in transition, Hillsman said, and the Orange’s zone never managed to put a clamp on BYU’s shooters.Brigham Young had four players who scored in the double digits. Syracuse, on the other hand, shot 37 percent from the field and went 0-of-7 from 3-point range.‘They did a really good job of executing, and they really got the ball down the floor and got the ball moving,’ Hillsman said. ‘It’s tough to guard when you’re trying to press and they’re moving the ball quickly and you’re trying to get into your defense.’SU center Kayla Alexander was the lone bright spot for the Orange, scoring a game-high 26 points and grabbing a team-high six rebounds.In the end, Alexander’s performance was essentially wasted, though. Hillsman said knowing she can still play that way in such a lopsided game sent a message.‘It’s good for us because at least you understand that she can still do that no matter what the situation of the game is,’ Hillsman said.The game wrapped up a four-game road trip in which the Orange went 2-2 after beating Binghamton and Boise State in the first two games.SU opens up its Big East schedule Wednesday against West Virginia, and Hillsman said the trip against solid competition was good preparation for conference play.‘Overall, it was a good trip for us to get out and play two tough teams,’ Hillsman said. ‘And we know we have to come back and play better if we expect to beat West Virginia.’cjiseman@syr.edu Published on December 4, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_isemancenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
