Man City boss Pellegrini has ‘no concerns’ over Toure form

first_imgManchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists he has “no concerns” over Yaya Toure’s form this season.The Ivorian midfielder has so far struggled to star for the Blues since returning from a difficult summer, in which he voiced criticisms of the club and lost his brother to cancer.He put in another largely anonymous performance against Aston Villa but popped up to net a crucial late goal in a 2-0 win at Villa Park, and Pellegrini is certain Toure will soon rediscover his dynamism.“Yaya is an experienced player,” said the City boss.“He can be criticised for one or two weeks but I know perfectly the way he thinks and the way he can play, so I never had a problem about that.“Yaya last season also played bad games, but he scored so many goals that everyone thought about that.“We started the season and Yaya knows he must improve every game and he is trying to do it. I don’t have any concern about him. He is one of the best midfielders, without any doubt.”City were frustrated for long spells at Villa Park by the hosts’ committed defending but Pellegrini felt the victory was deserved.They had earlier hit the woodwork twice, through Aleksandar Kolarov and Aguero, and thoroughly dominated possession away from home.“I don’t know if the word is relieved,” added the Chilean, “We deserved to win before the goal. We had a lot of clear chances to score.“I think we played the best game of the season in [terms of] possession, chances, the way we defended, intensity, the way we recovered the ball and the way we work.”last_img read more

first_imgPictured with Bobby Patterson collecting his new trailer are Davy Keith, IFA Development Officer, PJ McMonigle, IFA County Chairman, Sgt Paul Wallace and Stephen Temple, Temple Trailers. Photo Clive WassonA local company is helping farmers to beat the scourge of trailer thefts on their farms.Raphoe based firm Temple Trailers has teamed up with the Donegal IFA and An Garda Siochana in a crime prevention initiative to better protect farmers and their property.The joint scheme, which has been running successfully for 2 years in Donegal involves farmers marking their equipment such as trailers, tractors, quads and tools, etc, with a unique identifier number. This number is stencilled onto the equipment to warn thieves that their property is marked as well as being marked indelibly into the metal and also marked secretly in other ways.Temple Trailers will now be offering a service for IFA members that means if they buy a trailer from them they will mark the trailer with their IFA identifier code before the farmer collects it.Local Crime Prevention Officer Sgt. Paul Wallace praised the firm for their assistance.He said “It is important that local communities take an active part in reducing the vulnerability of local people in any way they can and I applaud Temple Trailers for their foresight. This will be a valuable service for local famers and is another tool in the prevention of theft.” Local IFA County Chairman PJ McMonagle welcomed the service.He said “Temple Trailers are a very important local business for the farming community and it is great to see them take the lead in protecting their customers. Stephen and Austin have always provided a great service for farmers and this is another example of how we can all work together and try to deter thieves who are always very active on farmyards.”DONEGAL COMPANY IS HELPING FARMERS TO LEAVE THIEVES ‘TRAILING’ was last modified: February 2nd, 2015 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:donegalGardaiRaphoeTEMPLE TRAILERSthieveslast_img read more

Wildcats rally, top Rams

first_imgThe Rams led 43-36 after a Wong jumper with 6:22 left in the game, but the Wildcats went on a 9-0 run to take a 45-43 lead. The Rams had chances down the stretch, but were called for a five-second violation trying to get the ball in play when they were trailing by a basket with less than a minute left. They also missed a pair of crucial inside attempts during the Spartans’ 9-0 run. “I give our team a lot of credit because we don’t have a lot of experienced players that play club,” Rams coach Chris Kwan said. “But I’m not going to make any excuses because we didn’t execute when we had to. “Give Monrovia credit, that’s why they’re defending league champs. They played hard defense down the stretch while we were second-guessing ourselves.” Center Brittney Phillips held Watkins to three points in the second half and 13 in the game. “She was the player of the game in my eyes,” Wagner said of Phillips. “She got on her (Watkins) and bodied her up every time down court. That was huge, because she was killing us in the first half.” fred.robledo@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4485 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Wildcats tied it when Shannon Gholar scored an off-balance runner in the lane, was fouled and made her free throw to tie the score 43-43 with 3:33 remaining. Point guard Krystyn Jacobs took it from there and gave the Wildcats a 45-43 lead on a running floater with 2:20 to play. She also hit four consecutive free throws in the final 19 seconds to close it out. The Wildcats improved to 13-4 overall and 4-0 in league. MONROVIA – It never looked like the Monrovia High School girls basketball team was panicking, but there certainly were concerned looks on the players’ faces after visiting Temple City raced to an early 14-point lead. But after an earful from coach Mike Wagner at halftime, the Wildcats climbed back into it with defense. They held the Rams to 12 points in the second half, including only four points in the fourth quarter, to earn a 49-45 victory that kept their perfect Rio Hondo League record intact. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card“You just saw the whole personality of this team,” Wagner said later. “We got behind, but we kept pushing and pushing. “These games aren’t great for your blood pressure when it’s happening, but I love these type of wins. It shows who you are. It shows these girls have character and heart and can do it when they need to.” The Rams (13-6) entered with a chance to take sole possession of first place, but they hadn’t played a team the quality of the Wildcats. But the Rams proved they belonged behind center Corinne Watkins, who finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds, and guard Deanna Wong, who finished with a game-high 19 points and hit five of seven 3-pointers. Wong caught fire in the second quarter and hit four consecutive 3-pointers. Her last came with 2:01 remaining in the half and gave the Rams a 31-17 lead. last_img read more

first_imgBeckett class group with their Year Head Ms Mc GranaghanJackson’s Hotel played host to a wonderful renewal of the Finn Valley College Prom on the final day of term, last Friday night. The amount of style and panache on display was a testament to the amount of time, effort and money that the students and their parents put into making this one of the most special nights of their young lives.Best dressed female Niamh Boyle with Ms Mc GeehanThe students were given the full red carpet treatment as the Limos, buses and even a chauffer driven lorry pulled up outside through the crowds of relatives and well-wishers. Fruit punch greeted the students and their partners inside the elegant surroundings of the Finn Suite as hundreds of cameras flashed from local media, the professional photographer and, of course, the obligatory selfies!From there, the revellers made their way into to the Drumboe Suite which was bedecked in a classic Black and Gold theme fit to grace any occasion. Also in the room was a beautifully decorated Sweet Cart adorned with dozens of specially named treats such as ‘Thompson’s treats’, ‘Boland’s babies’ and ‘Mc Granaghan’s mints to name but a few. The sweet jars named after the more than twenty staff of the school who generously gathered to help celebrate their students’ special night – a nice example of the special relationship enjoyed between staff and students in the school.Best dressed male Adam Callaghan with Mr Mc DaidAfter a beautiful meal all chairs were gathered in front of the big screen to watch the much-anticipated slideshow- a half hour production that chronicled the students’ time in school. Embarrassed groans and howls of laughter filled the room as the gathering witnessed, through film, the changes that have occurred to them over the past five years.Students Stephen O Donnell, Casey Doherty and Kevin Patton from the prom committee then gave short speeches thanking those deserving of thanks. Mr Thompson then gave a short speech praising the students and staff involved in the organising of the night before the excellent DJ Greg began filling the dancefloor with a great set. Throughout the night also, students and staff paid several visits to the ‘Photo booth’ for some great prop-inspired snaps that will provide yet more memories of their prom. There were plenty of novelty prizes given out across the night before the voting began for the best dressed and, of course, Prom King and Queen. Niamh Boyle who wore a stunning full length red dress picked up the Best Dressed female while Adam Callaghan, also sporting red in the form of a stylish bow tie and braces to go with his navy suit won Best Dressed male.Prom King Michael Mc Colgan with Ms Boland, Deputy PrincipalThe final two prizes of the night went the way of Prom Queen Casey Doherty and Prom King Michael Mc Colgan, two very deserving and popular winners.The night ended with the crowd calling out for ‘One more tune’ and DJ Greg duly obliged before the partygoers departed after a night to remember.   Binchy class group with their class teacher Mr O Donnell and SNA Nicole SiheraBoland class group with their class teacher Mr WhiteGLITZ, GLAMOUR AND A GREAT NIGHT AT THE FINN VALLEY PROM – PIC SPECIAL! was last modified: October 26th, 2014 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:Finn Valley Promlast_img read more

Alta Loma shuts out Walnut

first_img Walnut went three-and-out on its first series, and Alta Loma got on the board with a 75-yard drive that was capped by a three-yard run from Jack Rodgers. Walnut was unable to get a first down on its next possession and punted from its own 14. But Justin Garcia’s snap flew well over the reach of punter Brian Thomas and bounced out of the end zone for a safety, which gave the Braves a 9-0 lead with 5:34 left in the first quarter. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Things only got worse for Walnut when Alta Loma received the resulting kick, which Chris Ortiz returned the ball 39 yards to the Mustangs’ 37. Rodgers’ first carry of the drive went 25 yards, and Skyler Monroe took over from there with a seven-yard run and a 5-yard touchdown run. In addition to its inability to move the ball on offense, Walnut’s defense was in complete disarray because of Alta Loma’s no-huddle attack. The Braves next drive, six plays for 63 yards, took two minutes and built a 22-0 lead with 1:08 left in the first quarter. “That was more for us than for them,” Alta Loma coach John Kusleika said. “We felt it was important for us to establish out own offensive tempo for the game. But it was not for what they were doing.” With two minutes left in the second quarter, Alta Loma scored again from the Walnut 7 when quarterback Jonathon Price dropped back to pass, found no one open and ran it in himself, securing a 29-0 halftime lead. Walnut gave the Braves a taste of their own medicine after halftime when they used their own hurry-up offense. The Mustangs marched into Alta Loma territory for the first time in the game, but their progress was halted when Garrett Duran fumbled at the 12 and the Braves recovered. WALNUT – Alta Loma continued its undefeated streak in a dominating 36-0 win Friday night against Walnut at Walnut High School. Most of the Braves’ points came early in the game thanks to strong performances on all sides of the ball. center_img Alta Loma’s final score came at the 4:30 mark in the third quarter after defensive lineman Nic Albrechi intercepted an intended screen pass from Xavier Sanchez and took it to the Walnut 13-yard line.
