Cardiff boss Neil Warnock hails away fans for Crystal Palace stalemateby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCardiff City boss Neil Warnock hailed the away support for their 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.Warnock made a point of instructing his side to applaud the 1,700 away end, with the players handing over shirts to supporters in the crowd.He said: “When you’ve got fans like that and a club supporting you, you’ve always got a chance. Our dressing room is our strength, but I think we play a lot more than we get credit for.”I think the lads get tainted because they’re my team, whereas I think we play as well as a lot of teams in the league and we’ve got a bit of steel about us.””I’m really pleased for the fans. We’ve had one point in I don’t know how many games. To keep that volume up is unbelievable, so all credit to them.”Warnock added: “We looked at the last time they played Burnley and I think they had 30-odd shots, so we knew what we’d be up against.”But I thought we were really well organised and broke at pace when we got time. I thought their keeper made the best save of the game if I’m honest from Kadeem and at the end we kept going and nearly won it at the death.”I know it was a 0-0 draw but I thought it was an exciting 0-0 draw if I’m honest.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
MONTREAL – Canada and the European Union will come out the winners regarding the U.S. decision to leave the Paris climate deal, the Minister-President of the French-speaking Wallonia region of Belgium said Friday.Paul Magnette told the Montreal Council on Foreign Relations that many companies, academics and researchers will leave the U.S. and move to Canada or Europe to be in line with the environmental movement.He said in ten years, America “will realize with tears of blood” that it has been left behind in the technological revolution of renewable energies.U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday he would pull the U.S. out of The Paris Agreement, a climate pact ratified by the majority of the world’s countries, which agreed to work together to lower greenhouse has emissions.Despite being from a small part of Europe, the Walloons loomed large during negotiations for the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between the European Union and Canada.Magnette and his region of 3.6 million people held up the talks for weeks before eventually agreeing to the deal last October.

OSU won, 63-61.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOn Pi Day — a day where Ohio State published a video highlighting Aaron Craft’s ability to recite the many digits of the mathematical constant pi — the senior guard received yet another recognition.A testament to his play this season, Craft was named one of six finalists for the 2014 Bob Cousy Award, an honor given to the top point guard in men’s college basketball.According to a press release, the field of six finalists was whittled down from a list of 47 players by the Cousy Award screening committee.Joining Craft, the five other finalists for the award are UCLA sophomore Kyle Anderson, Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis, Connecticut senior Shabazz Napier, North Carolina sophomore Marcus Paige and Wichita State sophomore Fred VanVleet.“It was a tough process to narrow down the list of already exceptional point guards to only six, but these six men deserve to be fighting for the award and recognized as some of the greatest point guards in college basketball,” said Ken Kaufman, chair of the Bob Cousy Award and former president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches.John L. Doleva, president and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame, echoed the sentiments of his colleague, and added that the most difficult decision lies ahead.“The Cousy Award screening committee took on the tough job of choosing from many talented point guards to determine this list of six players who represent the leadership skills that Bob Cousy exhibited,” Doleva said. “Each of these candidates has consistently proven that they are worthy of this prestigious award.”While the screening committee takes plenty of time to select each finalist, Craft said that he doesn’t waste a minute to think about individual accomplishments.“There’s plenty of time to think about that when I’m old and fat and can’t run up and down anymore,” Craft said, regarding his place as a finalist. “The things that are going to be remembered are the things we do as a team. That’s the biggest focus.”Previous winners include many current NBA point guards like former Texas Longhorn D.J. Augustin, former St. Joseph’s Owl Jameer Nelson and the winner of the 2013 Cousy Award, former Michigan Wolverine Trey Burke.According to the release, the winner of the 2014 Cousy Award is scheduled be announced during the Hall of Fame festivities at the 2014 Final Four in Dallas.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says he is pleased with the football gods following his team’s win over Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup final.Ryan Christie scored the only goal of the encounter at the end of the first half as Celtic edged a narrow 1-0 win over Aberdeen to claim the first silverware of the season.However, Brendan Rodgers refused to be drawn on the prospect of winning the Scottish Premiership this season, saying: “We haven’t even played the second round of games yet in the league. That’s a long, long way away.”But the former Liverpool boss admitted the fact that Christie was the match-winner against the team he spent last season on loan with is ironic.“It’s the footballing gods that we saw today,” said Rodgers, according to The National. Match Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“When I came in he wasn’t ready to play week in, week out. We could see there was a talent there, but you need to have that physicality. You need to have that power as well as the quality. He’s always had the quality. I felt he needed to get some games.”“I’ve got good relations with Derek (Aberdeen manager McInnes). We both looked at it and we both felt he still needed to do more in the big games. But there’s absolutely no doubt he went away and got that physicality in body strength and durability in terms of how we want to play and the intensity.”“He came back in the summer and in the last eight or nine weeks he has shown that. It’s fantastic to see his status grow now and in the big games he’s shown really that he has that quality to play for the biggest teams.”“I’m delighted for him. The football gods, lo and behold he scored against the team he was at for 18 months. It was a wonderful finish, a great run off the ball. The keeper made a good save, but he reacts very well to it and finishes it and it ends up being the winner.”
