Football: Weather plays havoc with Chinese rivals’ Asian title hopes

first_img0Shares0000Shanghai SIPG coach Andre Villas-Boas (R) said his team’s trip home from a weekend defeat had been “very bad” due to flight delays © AFP/File / STRShanghai, China, Aug 21 – Luiz Felipe Scolari was left shaking his head Monday and Andre Villas-Boas spoke of “a very bad trip” after rain and lightning disrupted their AFC Champions League quarter-final preparations. Scolari’s Guangzhou Evergrande are slight favourites when they visit Villas-Boas’s Shanghai SIPG in the first leg of their all-Chinese clash on Tuesday. But both saw their build-ups thrown into disarray by bad weather that lashed parts of China.Villas-Boas effectively conceded the Chinese Super League (CSL) title to leaders and reigning champions Evergrande following a 2-1 loss on Saturday at Guizhou Zhicheng.Compounding his and SIPG’s misery ahead of what promises to be a defining week in their season, Villas-Boas revealed that the team’s flight back had been delayed because of lightning in Shanghai.“We had a very bad trip returning from Guizhou, not only because of the result but because we had problems with the flights and we only got back at 4:30am,” said the former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager.“It’s not ideal preparation for this game, but we still have tonight and tomorrow to rest a bit.“We are in a long, competitive run of fixtures and trips and hopefully we can be fresh for tomorrow.”Villas-Boas, who will come under pressure if he fails to deliver silverware this season, wants to take at least a one-goal advantage back to southern China for the second leg next month against two-time AFC champions Evergrande.Just as Villas-Boas was speaking a torrential downpour submerged Shanghai, scuppering Scolari’s well-laid training plans at the last minute.The unamused Evergrande coach later ambled in 20 minutes early to a hastily rearranged press conference and repeatedly shook his head and put his head in his hands.Asked by AFP what was troubling him, Scolari — another former Chelsea boss — insisted he was fine.“We understand there was heavy rain in the stadium (where they were to train) so we just moved to another training field, no problem,” the Brazilian said, although his body language told a different story.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Real deal Ronaldo set for fifth Ballon d’Or

first_imgThe man who came to maturity under the watchful eye of ex-Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson clinched his fourth Ballon d’Or after an unforgettable season, first spearheading Real to the Champions League title before also leading his homeland to Euro 2016 glory in Paris.The France Football magazine award is decided upon by a journalists ballot (with 173 voting in 2016) with each naming a top five from a list of 30.British bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Ronaldo, who is a cramped 10-1 on favourite to win, with Messi, trophyless last season, at 6-1.Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar is among the bookies’ favourites to win a Ballon d’Or © AFP/File / Christof STACHEBehind this pair the bookies round out their own top five with Paris Saint-Germain’s gifted Brazilian forward Neymar, the veteran Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and the prolific England centre-forward Harry Kane all at 33-1.The 2016-2017 season was in a way just as glorious for Ronaldo, who started the season slowly before Real shaded Barcelona to the domestic title and then became the first side in the modern era to defend their European crown.After seeing off Napoli, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid in the knock-out rounds Ronaldo scored twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus in the final, taking his tally to 12 goals in the competition that season.“Last season was exceptional. We won the league and the Champions League, where I was again the top scorer,” Ronaldo told French daily L’Equipe.– ‘I want seven’ –Real have a staggering seven players on the shortlist of 30 with Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Isco, Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos all nominated alongside their talisman Ronaldo.Bookies are giving 33-1 odds on Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane winning a Ballon d’Or © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFThe only other Barca player other than Messi, is the Uruguayan centre-forward Luis Suarez.On the prospect of equalling Messi’s five wins Ronaldo quipped: “I want seven. Five is good but seven is my lucky number so seven would be great.”“I want seven children and seven Ballons d’Or.”Despite his position as outsider Messi can take heart from the award’s history of upsets with Messi himself clinching the title against the odds in 2010.That season purists pointed to the achievements of Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder, winner of the Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup and indeed a World Cup finalist with the Netherlands.Also, in the run up to the vote Ronaldo has only scored twice in La Liga so far this season — although he has netted eight goals in five games in the Champions League — and Real are already eight points behind Messi’s Barcelona.Messi in contrast tops the Liga scoring charts with 13 goals and also secured a brilliant hat-trick for Argentina against Ecuador to clinch a last-gasp World Cup place in October, earning wide praise.“Leo is like Maradona for those of our generation,” said Messi’s compatriot, Juventus striker Paulo Dybala, himself tipped as a future winner.“He dragged us to the World Cup with the hat-trick in Ecuador. He is a born leader.”Aside from Messi and Ronaldo the Ballon d’Or, originally conceived to honour only European players before going fully global in 2007, has three triple winners — Johan Cruyff, Michel Platini and Marco van Basten.This year’s winner is being announced live on the L’Equipe television channel, the French sports daily being owned by the same company as France Football.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to claim a fifth Ballon d’Or as recognition for leading Real Madrid to a La Liga and Champions League double last season © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSPARIS, France, Dec 6 – Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to match his great rival Lionel Messi on Thursday by claiming a fifth Ballon d’Or as recognition for leading Real Madrid to a La Liga and Champions League double last season.Barcelona’s 30-year-old Argentinian superstar won the coveted award from 2009 to 2012 and in 2015.

`House’ doc yearns for strike cure

first_imgLisa Edelstein of “House” will be giving thanks if the entertainment industry’s striking writers can settle their differences with producers so her show and others can resume production. “When we got the news that they were going back to the table \, I felt like about 1,000 pounds had been lifted from my shoulders,” she said when we chatted earlier this week. “It’s been a very sad month. I hope we come to a quick and reasonable resolution.” Lisa was particularly excited about episodes 13 and 14, which were supposed to air after the Super Bowl. But production on “House” was halted after episode 12 was completed. The 41-year-old actress first gained notice while still a teenager when she was known as “Lisa E” around the NYC club scene and dubbed a “celebutante” by Newsweek magazine. Diana Ross mourns her father, Fred, 87 Diana Ross took to the stage for a sold-out concert Tuesday night with a heavy heart. The singing legend learned that morning that her 87-year-old father, Fred Ross, had died. Diana, still a knockout at age 63, decided to go on with her show at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal CityWalk and brought her children onto the stage at the end. The former Supreme then flew to her hometown of Detroit to be with her family. She is the latest star to lose a parent in recent weeks – after deaths of Kanye West`s mother, the Osmond family’s patriarch, and Martha Stewart`s mother. Quaid twin babies in stable condition Thinking good thoughts on this Thanksgiving for the twin babies of Dennis Quaid and his wife, Kimberly, who are at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in stable condition. Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, less than two weeks old, were mistakenly given a massive dose of a blood-thinning drug and are in neonatal intensive care. Cedars has issued a statement acknowledging the mistake and calling it a “preventable error.” The Quaids said through a representative that they are thankful for people’s concern and are hopeful their privacy will be respected during this difficult time.
