Jose Mourinho not happy with Cesc Fabregas & other Chelsea players

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho has admitted he’s not happy with some of his players.  EFE “Neither am I happy with myself because I usually get better results than I am getting at the moment,” Mourinho declared.  22/08/2015 Upd. at 15:44 Chelsea, who signed Spanish international Pedro on Thursday, will play against West Brom on Sunday at The Hawthorns.center_img “I am not happy with Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic. I’m not happy with any of them; neither am I happy with myself,” Mourinho said, in quotes ran by the BBC. It has been a disappointing start to the season for the Premier League champions. They are 16th in the table and have not won a game yet.  They lost to Arsenal in the Community Shield (1-0), drew with Swansea in the first game of the league (2-2) and suffered a painful defeat against Manchester City (3-0) last weekend.  CESTlast_img read more

Matawan’s Hurtault makes Ivy track history

first_img BY TIM MORRIS Staff Writer With four straight 400 titles BY TIM MORRISStaff Writer GENE BOYARS/COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS Columbia University’s Erison Hurtault has emerged as one of the nation’s top 400-meter runners after enjoying a stellar scholastic career at Matawan Regional High School. Erison Hurtault has managed to stay one step ahead of the competition throughout his sprinting career at Columbia University. The former Matawan High School star recently made Ivy League history when he became the first man to win an indoor league championship four consecutive years on Feb. 25. He collected his record fourth title at the New York Armory at the 60th Ivy League Heptagonal Championships in style setting, school, meet and Ivy League records with his 46.34. He did it in what has been his accustomed style indoors – from the front. “I ran a good race,” he pointed out. “I got to the cut (where runners change lanes) first. It’s the best strategy for indoors.” Throughout his dominance of the event, it hasn’t been the fast starts that have kept Hurtault ahead of the competition, but the finish. “My greatest strength is that I usually have a bit more left in the last 200,” he pointed out. Hurtault is well aware of how difficult it was to win four straight. After all, he can remember when he was a freshman intruding upon the more experienced upper classmen. It’s never easy staying on top. “To hold off the other guys, and there are a lot of good runners in the Ivy League, is special. It’s something to be proud of,” he said. Hurtault has left his imprint all over the Ivy League while setting his record. He won his championships at four different sites. He captured his first Hep title at Cornell. His sophomore year the meet was at Harvard and Hurtault broke the meet record there. Last year, Dartmouth was the venue and he turned in the eighth fasted time in the country. This year it was the Armory, not far from Columbia, and a place he has used for practice, and it produced another set of records for the Lion senior. It was the first time since 1952 that New York City hosted the Heps. Last weekend, the third time proved to be the charm for the ex-Husky as he won All-American honors for the first time in his collegiate career by finishing sixth at the NCAA Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. (top eight finishers earned All-America). The NCAA’s owed Hurtault. Last year he went to the meet with the eighth fastest time in the country and in solid position to make the All-American team. But he came down with an illness and was unable to compete. Hurtault went to Fayetteville with a goal of getting to the final, which would assure of making All-America. He did that by winning his heat in 46.54 and then, running faster in Sunday’s final to achieve his goal. Having lowered his indoor personal best (pb) during the winter, Hurtault looks forward to the outdoor season where he has a pb of 46.11 and has the chance to make history all over again at the Heps. No one has ever won four straight outdoor Hep titles and, guess who has won three straight 400 crowns? Hurtault. He’ll be looking to go a perfect eight-for-eight at the Ivy League championships in Princeton in May. With a pb of 48 seconds in high school, Hurtault has seen his time steadily lowered during his four years in Morningside Heights, N.Y. He credits it to a far more narrower focus. He ran cross country in high school as well as the 100-200-400 for the Huskies. At Columbia, he noted the focus is totally on the 400 with everything designed to make him better. As any 400 runner knows, it’s as grueling a test as any in track and field with sprinters flirting with the red zone the entire way. “You can’t be afraid,” said Hurtault. “You can’t let it (pain) control you.” Don’t expect the outdoor season (which for Columbia begins March 24 in West Point, N.Y. with the Dick Shea Invitational) to be the end of the road for Hurtault. The economics major isn’t looking to hang his track spikes up any time soon. “I want to keep it going a little big longer,” he said. The Olympics are in 2008 and Hurtault’s goal is to make the US Olympic Trials. By winning All-American honors last weekend, he certainly has established himself as one of the country’s up-and-coming 400 sprinters.last_img read more

Scotland and France make changes ahead of Six Nations clash

first_imgFrance coach Fabien Galthie made two changes to his team to face Scotland in the Six Nations on Sunday as winger Teddy Thomas was left out of the squad.Thomas showed worrying defensive shortcomings in the first three games and was not included among the replacements to face Scotland.Damian Penaud made his return from injury after missing the victories against England, Italy and Wales.“Damian Penaud was supposed to start against England (in the first match) but he got injured the day before. He came back with us the fortnight before the Wales game and was excellent during training,” Galthie told a news conference on Thursday.“So he is a starter again but Teddy Thomas is still part of the France group. He is not in the 28 because we preferred to include Gabriel Ngandebe.”Prop Jefferson Poirot will start in the absence of Cyril Baille, who sustained a shoulder injury in the 27-23 win in Cardiff in the previous round.Grand Slam hopefuls France top the rankings with 13 points, four ahead of England, whose trip to Italy was postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.A win in Scotland would leave Les Bleus needing to beat Ireland on March 14 to secure their first Grand Slam since 2010.“We hear the praise,” said Galthie. “Our goal is to win matches, to win titles, quickly. But the danger is there and we are well aware of it.”Scotland coach Gregor Townsend has made three changes to the forward pack for Sunday’s Six Nations clash at Murrayfield against leaders France, with hooker Fraser Brown, lock Grant Gilchrist and number eight Nick Haining coming into the side.Brown is set to claim his 50th test cap, the 43rd Scotland player to do so.Exeter Chiefs lock Sam Skinner has been named as a replacement after recovering form injury while Glasgow Warriors’ Kyle Steyn could make his Scotland debut from the bench.“This week we face a France team that looks galvanised since the World Cup, with a potential Grand Slam in their sights following impressive wins over England, Italy and Wales,” Townsend said.“France’s victories have been built on an aggressive and well-organised defence, so the precision, decision-making and effort in our attacking game will have to be very good in order to get in behind them this weekend.”Scotland are fifth in the standings.last_img read more
