Coppell returns to Jamshedpur as ATK face stern test

first_imgCoppell returns to Jamshedpur as ATK face stern testJamshedpur: Jamshedpur FC will look to turn around their fortunes at home in the Indian Super League (ISL) when they host a refreshed ATK, managed by former gaffer Steve Coppell here on Sunday.Under Coppell, Jamshedpur FC have managed a mere three wins at home from nine matches last season and just missed out on a play-off spot.“It’s great to be back. I am very proud of what we did last year, even though we did not make the play-offs. It was a great achievement for a new franchise and I look forward to the game tomorrow,” Coppell said.

They defeated Mumbai City 2-0 and then followed it up with an exciting 2-2 stalemate against Bengaluru FC.“ATK are a good a team. Their team has improved from the first match and they have a good coach. The ATK game, for me, is the most important match of the season. We will try our best. We need to play like a team and I am sure we can win tomorrow,” Ferrando stated.

I hope in front of him, we play well,” he added.Jamshedpur’s new signings and additions have all clicked so far. Mario Arques already looks to be one of the signings of the season while the familiar face of Memo has offered him unconditional support in midfield. Sergio Cidoncha and Pablo Morgado have hit the ground running as well.

They also have the most number of debutants (4) this season to score a goal as well.Coppell, meanwhile, has got off to a difficult start as has been the case with his teams in the previous seasons as well. ATK succumbed to defeats in their first two games but the Kolkata-based club struck back with a 2-1 win against Delhi Dynamos. Also Read – Manipur’s Thounaojam Kritina Devi all set to be part of the FIFA U-17 World CupCoppell’s teams are usually solid at the back but John Johnson and Gerson Vieira are yet to hit the peak of their form after three games. The win against Delhi Dynamos, however, helped their forwards regain confidence.Balwant Singh and Noussair El Maimouni got on the scoresheet for ATK in their last outing and Manuel Lanzarote looked to be back to his best. Kalu Uche was also instrumental in linking up attacks up front.“Although it has just been two games, they (Jamshedpur) have made a solid start. We will be looking to press forward as well. It is a good challenge for us. We will look to pick up points,” stated Coppell.Tim Cahill’s presence up front and his impending battle against seasoned campaigner John Johnson makes for interesting viewing. Add Sergio Cidoncha to the mix and the ATK defence will have their task cut out.ATK showed that they are not all about defensive football. Their usage of space during quick counter-attacks will be lethal against Ferrando’s men who will be expected to dominate the proceedings at their home ground. IANSlast_img read more

Pelosi: ‘Pass Law So Sitting Presidents Can Be Indicted’

first_imgTalks of impeachment stem from the almost two-year investigation into Russian meddling in the US presidential election conducted by Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.The conclusion of the investigation then prompted calls by Democrats to change federal law after Mueller said his team never considered possible obstruction of justice charges against President Trump because of a long-standing Justice Department policy that precludes such an indictment.The issue has been brought back into the spotlight amid recent reports by a whistleblower within the intelligence community, alleging Trump had an “improper” conversation with a foreign leader.The conversation is reported to have been urging Ukraine to look into former Vice President Joe Biden, the current Democratic presidential front-runner for the 2020 election,  and his son Hunter Biden.Trump spoke out about the conversation and denied the allegations against him in a series of tweets on Saturday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed changing federal law to allow sitting presidents to be indicted in an interview with NPR on Friday.Pelosi added it would apply if he-or-she has engaged in wrongdoing but indicated that she was no closer to moving to impeach President Donald Trump.However, many Democrat lawmakers have called for the impeachment of President Trump.Related content:Nancy Pelosi: Trump is provoking Democrats to impeach him He also criticized Democrats for trying to start another “ridiculous Witch Hunt scheme.”Pelosi is the latest to take a swipe in the ongoing feud between her and President Trump.After the interview Friday, her office released an official statement indirectly accusing the president of hiding something.The two political figures have been long-time rivals who regularly disagree on policy.Tensions between the pair have intensified over the past year and seemingly become personal.last_img read more

Powered by Firework The Indian cricket team has seen some of the finest fielders in the sport, and from fans to pundits, there are countless opinions on who does the job best in squad. Virat Kohli, the skipper and a revered fielder himself, also has his pick on the best fielder India currently has, and its none other than Ravindra Jadeja. Advertisement Image Courtesy: GettyJadeja has proven himself in field duty a number of times, from stunning boundary saves, dramatic run outs, and superhuman catches that set the stadium on a frenzy. And just like millions of Team India supporters, Kohli also puts the superstar all rounder’s field work from above everybody else’s.On Wednesday, the official Instagram of Star Sports India put up a post, with aan interesting choice for the netizens of the country: “If you had one shot at hitting the stumps to save your life, who would you choose to throw for you – Jaddu or Virat?” The post had a collage of Kohli and Jadeja in action.Advertisement While the supporters were split in their choices, it was a no brainer for the captain of the Men in Blue.“Jaddu. Everytime. End of debate. 👌” Kohli commented.Image Courtesy: InstagramThe skipper has always been open about his appraisal towards his Gujarati compatriot. During last year’s Bangladesh Test series, Kohli stated that Jadeja was ‘impossible to outun’ via a tweet. “Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, it’s almost impossible to outrun him 😃👌. @[email protected]” Kohli had tweeted in November during the hstorical Day/Night Test series.Not just Kohli or the fans, Jadeja has even been praised by Team India’s current fielding coach and former first-class cricketer Ramakrishnan Sridhar, who hailed the Gujarati as “possibly best Indian fielder of decade.”“Jaddu’s presence on the field lifts the team”s spirits. He is someone who can keep the opposition on their toes with his fielding. He has an intimidating presence on the field,” Sridhar said in an interview with Times of India back in October 2019.Jadeja has made 49 Test, 165 ODI and 49 T20I appearances for India, and othet than outstanding all rounder performances, he has made 36, 58 and 21 catches across the three formats respectively.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-4 Exciting Reasons Why Everyone Ought to Give Online Poker Games a Try Dark Times: Turkish footballer arrested after confessing to murder of his 5-year-old son Advertisementlast_img read more

CALIFORNIA CUP OAKS QUOTES – SATURDAY JANUARY 28, 2017

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES JOE TURNER, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “This is special. Three different riders, three different wins, three different tracks and two different surfaces . . . what more could you ask for?“I still have the dam and people from the Square Eddie camp are very anxious to see the baby. She’s in foal to him now.“I could breed back to Surf Cat, too, she’s doing so well with him. I was going to try to get her to Vronsky but I’m undecided. I’ve known Bruce Headley for many, many years so I may lean his way (and breed to Surf Cat).” JERRY HOLLENDORFER, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “That was the question, whether she would do that or not (run well on turf), and she did it I think in pretty nice fashion. I was very pleased the way she rated off the pace, and showed good enough speed to get up and be tactical. That was very beautiful, for me.”Hollendorfer added he had “no thoughts yet” on her next race.             NOTES: Winning owner Joe Turner is from Fresno. TYLER BAZE, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “I had a beautiful trip. Mr. Hollendorfer and I talked before about the speed in the race and he left it up to me. She pulled me to the lead. I just let her break and find her own stride. She loved it. She was comfortable out there and had no problems sitting second. It was a fun ride.” TRAINER QUOTES -30-last_img read more
