Pearson ‘escapes FA punishment’

first_img Pearson claimed after Saturday’s defeat he could “look after himself”, but Lineker hinted on Twitter Pearson was sacked by one member of the Srivaddhanaprabha family, who own the club, before being reinstated by another. When asked if he was a fountain of knowledge, the former England striker tweeted: ”If I was I’d tell you that he was sacked by one of the owners’ family and reinstated by another, but then I’m not.” The club took almost four hours on Sunday evening to dismiss claims Pearson had been axed. Nigel Pearson has escaped punishment for appearing to throttle James McArthur but has been reminded of his responsibilities by the Football Association, Press Association Sport understands. Leicester boss Pearson appeared to grab McArthur around the throat during Crystal Palace’s 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. The FA is understood to have contacted Pearson, who had been rumoured to have been sacked on Sunday, but will not take any further action against the Foxes boss. Leicester, who are still rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night. Pearson has attempted to laugh off his touchline scuffle with Palace’s record signing McArthur, who almost joined Leicester when leaving Wigan last summer. Leicester manager Pearson rounded on Match of the Day pundits after the BBC show’s panel condemned his handling of the incident with the Palace midfielder. Pearson accused the BBC pundits of making “a mountain out of a molehill”. Gary Lineker branded the incident “strange”, while Danny Murphy questioned any “underlying” issue after McArthur’s transfer from Wigan to Leicester collapsed in the summer. Pearson said: ”I thought they were slightly disruptive, yes. I don’t care what they think of me, I pay my tax bills. I didn’t see it until the morning. ”It’s not helpful when the three fountains of knowledge on Match of the Day make a mountain out of a molehill, there’s nothing in that on Saturday. The lad’s okay and it was very light-hearted. ”He has said that too. It was all very light-hearted, if you see the pictures it was with smiles.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Ronnie O’Sullivan clinches 6th title at Snooker World C’ship

first_imgLONDON: Ronnie O’Sullivan clinched his sixth title at the Snooker World Championship by beating first-time finalist Kyren Wilson 18-8 at Crucible in Sheffield.O’Sullivan, 44, reached Sunday’s final for the first time since 2014 after coming from behind to edge three-time world champion Mark Selby 17-16 in the semi-finals. He met almost no challenge from world number eight Wilson, who had ousted defending champion and world number one Judd Trump in the quarterfinals, winning the last eight frames in a row to conclude the final. “I was happy to get one world title at one stage,” O’Sullivan told the World Snooker Tour website. “Once I got to four I knew I could call myself one of the greats, because that’s how many times John Higgins had won it. Anything above that and you are in fantastic company.” O’Sullivan is only one title away from the record of seven held by Stephen Hendry, but he has already set the new record of 37 ranking titles, one ahead of Hendry. O’Sullivan defeated China’s top player Ding Junhui 13-10 to book a quarter-final berth before he came from 8-4 down to defeat Mark Williams 13-10. In the first round, O’Sullivan recorded the fastest win in World Championship history by taking just 108 minutes to sweep Thai player Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 10-1.

Rogers begins to show confidence for Syracuse as 1st-line midfielder

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Lisa Rogers would think about her leg instead of lacrosse.She’d think about it while running. She’d think about it in between the 30-yard lines. She’d think — and then hesitate — when there was no reason to.Rogers was part of a second-line midfield that was still learning how to play together. She was fully recovered physically from an ACL injury, but still wasn’t playing her best.“I was more of a support player (last year) because it was more of a mental block than a physical block,” Rogers said.Now, a year later, Rogers is at the peak of her game. She’s not afraid to take risks and instead of thinking, she’s just playing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRogers missed her entire freshman season due to the ACL injury and spent her sophomore year learning on the job as part of the second line with Kelly Cross and Erica Bodt. Now on the first line, Rogers will continue to play a prominent role for the No. 2 Orange (4-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) when it takes on Connecticut (1-2) on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.After four of Syracuse’s contributing midfielders graduated, the three juniors have moved up to the first line this season.The trio was in a rut last year, Cross said. They struggled with communication on the field and Rogers’ hesitancy didn’t help. Everyone knew what they were capable of, but they weren’t performing that way.The turning point came during fall ball.Syracuse hosted a tournament and scrimmaged against other colleges. That’s when Rogers first exuded the conviction to fit into SU’s starting lineup as the midfielders started to spark the offense.“It was kind of a question of whether she would gain that confidence in the offseason,” Cross said, “but she came in in the fall and you could just tell she was ready to prove something.”Through four games, the starting middies have combined for 17 points, which is already nearly half of what they totaled last year. While Rogers only has four of those, it’s her intangibles that have opened the offense up for Cross and Bodt.Rogers said she’s at her best in between each restraining line. On rides, she slides to the ball-carrier and provides pressure. On clears, she has the ability to fly past the other team without even passing the ball.“She’s confident and the game’s slowed down for her a bit,” Syracuse head coach Gary Gait said. “She understands what she’s doing and she’s in a good position as a starter to go out and make plays.”Against Canisius on Feb. 15, Rogers got the ball in her own end off a turnover, charged through the center of the field and raced past two Canisius defenders. To avoid losing the ball, she extended her stick out with one hand as they both tumbled to the turf unable to keep up. The crowd roared after she executed the clear all by herself and then she dumped the ball off to SU’s highly touted attack.When Syracuse trailed Virginia 4-1 on Monday, the Orange’s offense was stagnant. After Gait called timeout 15 minutes into the game, it was Rogers who scored SU’s second goal, beginning a 5-0 run to take the lead and UVA never got it back.Rogers embraces the role as a go-to player. She says that having teammates rely on her forces her to raise her level of play.She got a tally in the box score, something she doesn’t normally do, but it’s not the first new thing she’s doing this season.“She held her own, but she wasn’t back at that level that everyone kind of knew she could play at,” Cross said. “That’s why it’s really exciting this year, she’s just stepped up her game tremendously.“She’s better than ever now.” Comments Published on February 25, 2015 at 12:07 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschwedslast_img read more
