On the rugby pitch, a case of the blues for Les Bleus

first_imgLosing to Wales in the opening fixture despite leading 16-0 at half-time was followed a week later by France’s heaviest defeat to England since 1911.Since Brunel took charge in December — heading into 2019, a World Cup year — his side has conceded an average of 34 points per game and have only scored more than 30 themselves on one occasion.“On the field we are down, we have been taken down by the past and we might even fall again, I can’t predict what will happen,” number eight Louis Picamoles said.“There are improvements to be made. Individually as players and collectively with the coaching staff,” centre Mathieu Bastareaud added.“There’s no magic recipe, there’s no ‘it’s the player’ fault, it’s the coaches’ fault’. If we start looking at things on a personal level we will not manage to get out of it,” prop Jefferson Poirot added.– Deja vu –Louis Picamoles is France’s most capped number eight © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFEThe humiliating 44-8 loss to England a fortnight ago brought back memories of the 62-13 quarter-final embarrassment at the hands of eventual champions New Zealand at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.Picamoles started that game in Cardiff where France suffered the third heaviest defeat in their more than 100 years of Test rugby.One criticism of this current French crop is a lack of leadership to help captain Guilhem Guirado after the influential figures of Thierry Dusautoir, Frederic Michalak and Pascal Pape retired.“Having more leaders in 2015 than now is not something that jumps out at me from the squad. Maybe there were more experienced players,” he said.“Maybe there were more experienced players before but I don’t think Guilhem has been as lonely as people from the outside have imagined,” he added.Bastareaud came off the bench for the hammering four years ago and started the thumping in Twickenham.He failed to see a change in the team since the loss in Cardiff.“After a defeat like that it’s hard to say there’s been a big evolution,” he said.“The communication was much less, everyone stayed on their own, thinking about certain things on their own,” the Toulon centre said.– Responsibility for all –One difference has been the introduction of a leadership group within the squad since November, a move that has been formalised since the humbling to England two weeks ago.Yoann Huget has scored nine tries in 55 Tests for France © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKThe eight-player committee includes Bastareaud, Poirot, scrum-half Morgan Parra, lock Felix Lambey, teenager Romain Ntamack, outside backs Gael Fickou and Yoann Huget, as well as Picamoles.“It’s always hard to work in a squad of 30-odd men who all have different visions. This means we can have a tighter collection of players from all ages from almost every position to feedback on what matters most to us, what happens on the field,” Picamoles said.“We all need to share the responsiblity. In the past, the responsiblity had always been on the coaching staff and the captain,” Poirot said.Huget explained it was established not only as a reaction to the poor start to the Six Nations but also in preparation for the World Cup to be held in Japan between September and November.“Why not put it in place earlier on? We had other things to manage. Firstly the Six Nations is now but we’ve also got a World Cup to get ready for,” Huget said.Les Bleus host Scotland at a sold-out Stade de France on Saturday less than seven months from the start of the show-piece tournament in Tokyo.To hold any hope of success in the Japanese autumn positive results must start in the Parisian spring.Shares(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) SharesGuilhem Guirado has been the French captain since January 2016 © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISPARIS, France, Feb 20 – France’s rugby squad — who have lost 10 of their last 13 games — are not a happy bunch of players and coaches to be around at the moment.The negative atmosphere surrounding and within Jacques Brunel’s squad has only worsened with two straight defeats to open the Six Nations campaign, leaving glum faces and bleak expressions facing journalists.last_img read more

FA expected to confirm Southgate as Eng boss

first_img0Shares0000Gareth Southgate has been offered the England manager’s job, media reportLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – Gareth Southgate is expected to be approved as the new England manager by Football Association chiefs on Wednesday, according to British media reports.Southgate has been in interim charge since replacing Sam Allardyce in September after he was forced out just 67 days into his reign following a Daily Telegraph investigation into corruption in football. The 46-year-old Southgate has made it clear he wants the job and, given the lack of other quality candidates, is believed to have done enough during his four games in charge to convince the FA to hand him the post on a permanent basis.Southgate’s position should be ratified during an FA board meeting on Wednesday, although an official announcement is unlikely to be immediate.The former Middlesbrough boss, who would become England’s third manager this year following the departures of Roy Hodgson and Allardyce, spoke to a five-man panel at St George’s Park last Monday after the end of his interim reign.FA chairman Greg Clarke, chief executive Martin Glenn, technical director Dan Ashworth, former England player Graeme Le Saux and League Managers’ Association chairman Howard Wilkinson were all involved.While it was billed as an interview it was more of a discussion about Southgate’s vision of the England team.Glenn had previously confirmed Southgate was in a strong position and the former England defender wanted the job.During his brief tenure Southgate has already had to deal with controversy with captain Wayne Rooney pictured mingling with guests at the hotel where England were based during his free time following the 3-0 World Cup qualifying win over Scotland.Newspaper reports suggested the skipper was drunk and made an unscheduled appearance at a wedding reception, with chief executive Glenn promising an investigation into the conduct of all players and staff during their free time.Southgate was unbeaten in his four games, winning two and drawing two, including this month’s win over Scotland which left England top of Group F as they bid to reach the 2018 World Cup.England also beat Malta and drew in Slovenia before a 2-2 friendly draw with Spain in Southgate’s last game, when they squandered a two-goal lead in the final minutes at Wembley.Southgate’s backroom team will be discussed at the board meeting, with Chelsea assistant coach Steve Holland set to be handed a full-time role with the senior national side.The FA must also look at the age group set-ups with under-20 manager Aidy Boothroyd having temporarily stepped up to replace Southgate, who had previously served as under-21 boss.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Allardyce still hopeful West Ham can land Manchester United star

first_img Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher 1 Sam Allardyce has revealed that West Ham are still hopeful of signing Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher.The Hammers boss has been heavily linked with the Scotland international, who looks set to leave Old Trafford by mutual consent this month with his contract due to expire in the summer.Valencia and West Brom were the two other clubs said to be lining up a contract offer for Fletcher, but it appeared that West Ham had edged ahead of both of them in the race to land him.When asked whether he was still hoping to land the 30-year-old, Allardyce said: “It’s still a possibility.“It’s not dead yet but we’re not certain. It’s not as if we’re desperate.“We’d like a player of Darren’s quality if possible but if we can’t we are more than capable of carrying on where we are.”Allardyce has also been linked with two frontmen during the transfer window in Swansea’s Bafetimbi Gomis and Burnley’s Danny Ings.But when asked whether he was interested in either forward, he said: “No.“I think with having Enner Valencia, Diafra Sakho, Carlton Cole and Andy Carroll, we’ve got more than enough frontmen to cope with the demands for the rest of the season.“In the summer we will see what happens, but at this moment in time we are fine with the four options we’ve got up front now.”last_img read more

Champions League team of the week: Ronaldo and one Chelsea player make our XI

first_img Right-back: Alessandro Florenzi (Roma) – He nullified Neymar and bagged an outrageous 60-yard equaliser to boot – not a bad evening for the Italian. 11 11 Central Midfield: Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich) – Brilliant in possession and eye-catching in a multitude of roles, the ex-Barcelona man is key to Bayern’s dynamism. Centre-back: David Alaba (Bayern Munich) – The ultimate utility man, Pep Guardiola will know he can rely on Alaba to perform wherever he is selected. Excelled in the centre of defence as Bayern completed a routine win over Olympiakos. 11 Striker: Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – Another day, another hat-trick. Shakhtar Donetsk aren’t a bad side but were put to the sword by the most clinical finisher in world football. That’s eight goals in the space of five days and four trebles in his last six games. Ludicrous. 11 11 Left-back: Jordi Alba (Barcelona) – On a comparatively fruitless evening for the European champions, Alba provided their main outlet with his incisive runs from left-back. 11 11 Central midfield: Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea) – Shades of his best, Fabregas scored one and set up another for Diego Costa as Chelsea got back to winning ways against a desperately poor Maccabi Tel-Aviv side. Goalkeeper: Johan Wiland (Malmo) – PSG amassed a massive 22 shots on Tuesday night and would have scored a lot more than two if it wasn’t for the 34-year-old’s brilliant reflexes. The Champions League is back and, well, the Premier League just isn’t the force it used to be, is it?With three of our four teams suffering defeats – two of those against PSV and Dinamo Zagreb, the tournament has offered a bit of a reality check to those still claiming it’s the best league in the world.Still, Chelsea got back to winning ways after their dreadful start to the season, while we saw the rest of Europe’s best showcase why they are just that.Here’s your team of the week from Matchday 1. 11 11 11 Centre-back: Diego Godin (Atletico Madrid) – Fast turning into one of Europe’s meanest defenders, he was in brilliant form to repel Galatasaray on Tuesday. 11 Right Wing: Angel di Maria (PSG) – Surprise surprise, Di Maria looked back to his electric best against Malmo on his European debut for PSG. Took his goal brilliantly – penny for your thoughts, Manchester United fans? Striker: Alvaro Morata (Juventus) – The scourge of Manchester City, Morata showcased exceptional hold up play before capping his fine performance with a brilliant winning goal. Left Wing: Hulk (Zenit St Petersburg) – Just occasionally, Hulk displays why there is so much fuss about him. Against Valencia on Wednesday was one of those nights, registering two stupendous finishes as Zenit ran out 3-2 winners in Spain. last_img read more

L.A. renews its ban on bias

first_imgBy Rick Orlov Staff Writer In a major concession involving a 14-year-old case alleging harassment in the hiring and promotion of gays and lesbians in the Los Angeles Police Department, the City Council agreed Wednesday to reinstitute policies banning discrimination. In a 12-0 vote, the council also agreed to pay $695,000 in attorneys fees for former LAPD Sgt. Mitch Grobeson, an openly gay police officer who won a suit in 1993 requiring department policy changes. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“The city will finally live up to the agreement it reached in 1993 on sexual harassment based on sexual orientation,” Theresa Traber, Grobeson’s attorney, said. Grobeson, 48, was briefly reinstated to his post before taking a disability retirement in 1995. He is seeking to be reinstated to his job at a trial scheduled to start Nov. 13. He is also seeking back pay and damages. In his initial case, Grobeson and two others split $700,000 in damages. Under terms of Wednesday’s agreement, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will re-issue an executive order first released by then-Mayor Richard Riordan banning discrimination in city agencies based on sexual orientation. The city also agreed to improve training for officers on gay and lesbian issues. rick.orlov@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

NOT A SINGLE PROPOSED PAY-CUT FOR TOP BANKERS – DOHERTY

first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said the government has once again failed to reel in top bankers.Pearse DohertyDeputy Doherty made this comment after CEOs from Ulster Bank, Bank of Ireland, AIB and PTSB confirmed to him that not a single banker earning over €100,000 in any state-owned bank has taken a pay-cut in the last year.Deputy Doherty saiD “Minister Noonan spent €120,000 of taxpayer’s money on the Mercer Report. He then committed to cut banks’ payrolls by 6-10%. “In April this year under pressure from Sinn Féin An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said that he expected this to ‘include a substantial contribution from the bank leadership on pay and pensions’. None of the state-owner banks’ proposals includes any cuts to the basic salary to the top earners.“This year the Finance Committee heard that the three state-owned banks have sent out over 10,000 letters threatening repossession. Earlier this year Minister Noonan refused to use his shares to block the €843,000 remuneration package of Bank of Ireland CEO Richie Boucher. Those two facts show how this government’s banking strategy is a failure.”He added the government has failed abysmally to stand up to the banks and their “arrogant leadership.”“There are 2,716 employees at these banks who earn packages over €100,000, over 100 of whom earn more than €300,000. Yet not one of these employees has taken a cut to their basic salary. “This stands in stark contrast to the austerity this government inflicts to people the length and breadth of the state. Minister Noonan needs to be reminded that the people own PTSB and AIB and a 15% share in Bank of Ireland. He needs to let these banks know that a payroll cut that doesn’t hit the highest earners is unacceptable.” NOT A SINGLE PROPOSED PAY-CUT FOR TOP BANKERS – DOHERTY was last modified: September 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bankersPearse Dohertylast_img read more

Air Force One is Simi’s place to be

first_imgSIMI VALLEY – Since it opened last fall, the Air Force One Pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum has become one of the hottest party spots in the region, hosting special events attended by a combined 10,000 people, and still booked months ahead. The pavilion has allowed bigger parties than ever before, and attendance has increased about 60 percent since last year at evening parties held after the library and museum close. Thousand Oaks-based Amgen, the world’s largest independent biotechnology company, held holiday parties there, and students from Taft High School in Woodland Hills are among youth groups planning prom-type celebrations there this spring. “It’s the hottest ticket in town. Everybody wants to go and be seen there,” said Simi Valley City Councilwoman Barbra Williamson, who has attended gala events there, including one attended by 400 people last month with a “Casablanca” theme to benefit the Simi Valley Police Foundation. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant That party used the Air Force One to enhance the theme of the Humphrey Bogart movie, with airplane engines roaring as Ingrid Bergman leaves Bogart in the airport scene at the end of the film, which was shown on a big screen during the party. Men dressed in Bogart-style white dinner jackets, and the women wore 1940s costumes. In just the three months from November through January after the Air Force One Pavilion opened, the number of guests attending special events at the library skyrocketed to 16,090, compared to 10,031 in the same three months a year ago. Before the Air Force One Pavilion opened in October, parties at the library were held in the presidential learning center, which accommodates groups of 200 to 500. Parties in the Air Force One Pavilion run from 500 to 1,000 guests. The library charges $15,000 for corporations to rent the space for one night and $10,000 for nonprofit organizations, with special pricing available for what the library calls “student recognition dinners,” like proms. And that doesn’t include food and decorations. It costs $3,000 for corporations to rent the presidential learning center and $2,000 for nonprofits. Williamson has attended parties at the learning center and Air Force One Pavilion and said while both sites are beautiful, the pavilion is “spectacular.” “It just makes you feel like you are in a totally different world, and it makes you feel so proud, to be close to our history, to be walking around in a room with this magnificent bird,” she said. “When you are at a gala event there, people act more distinguished, more respectful. The surroundings call for it. It’s something you just feel when you walk into the room.” The size of the 87,000-square-foot pavilion lends itself to large parties, with three stories, balconies, wide staircases, a catwalk through the air into the plane and a panoramic window looking out over the hills. And on an intimate scale, it has the Ronald Reagan Pub, brought piece by piece from Reagan’s ancestral home. It is only at the evening parties that alcoholic drinks are served. It is used as a snack bar for museum guests, including children, during the day. Since its opening, the pavilion hosted special events every Saturday evening through the end of December, involving more than 8,900 guests before the end of the year. “This fiscal year we’ve already booked it 46 times,” said Melissa Giller, the library’s chief of communications. “The main purpose to be hosting these events is as a kind of community outreach. It’s a great way to get visitors to come up here and increase our visitorship.” But the facilities are available only to parties held by corporate entities or educational organizations – not for social or private engagements, including weddings. Among the upcoming parties, Childrens Hospital and St. Jude’s Hospital are planning events there in March, a Boys and Girls Club event is planned in April and the Taft High School students will be holding a student recognition dinner in June. Judy Pepiot, vice president of the Simi Valley Historical Society, and her husband, Don, dressed up for the Police Foundation Party and said it was “like an extra Halloween.” She wore a silk gown with shoulder pads and a black 1940s-style hat, and her husband wore a white jacket, black tie and black fedora. “It was the first time I’ve been there,” she said. “It’s festive just going inside. It’s almost like being in a theme park.” Terry Marvin, a board member of the Simi Valley Police Foundation, said she is hoping to go back for two more parties this month. “You have a spectacular view. It’s a big, wide open space,” she said. “There is so much you can do if you want to have some sort of a theme party.” Eric Leach, (805) 583-7602 eric.leach@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
