Spotlight on fiery Costa in Chelsea vs Liverpool

first_imgLONDON:With 24 bookings in two-and-a-bit seasons, moody Chelsea striker Diego Costa is used to living on the edge in English football.And nowhere is his brittle temperament seemingly put to the test more than in matches against Liverpool.A stamp on Emre Can that earned Costa a retrospective three-match ban. The numerous bust-ups with Martin Skrtel. The forehead-on-forehead confrontation with Steven Gerrard. It doesn’t take much to rile Costa, but there’s something about Liverpool that really fires up the often-pilloried Spain international.So expect plenty of scrutiny on Costa when the two teams meet in tonight’s fixture of the English Premier League, which is the highlight of the fifth round of games.The debate is on regarding Costa: Will he finish the season with more goals than yellow cards? It’s a close-run thing at the moment.He is back to his best in front of goal, netting four goals in four games in Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the league campaign that has seen the team earn 10 points from a possible 12. In the 2-2 draw against Swansea on Sunday, Costa scored both of Chelsea’s goals and was almost impossible to keep down.Costa is also keeping match officials busy by getting three yellow cards, and ran the risk of seeing those turn into red with a studs-first challenge against West Ham and by throwing himself theatrically to the ground against Watford and Swansea.Costa, put simply, is never far from a flashpoint.”If you are in a friendly-game mood, then you have no chance,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said of Costa. “He is a real warrior on the pitch.”There’s rarely a news conference with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte that doesn’t involve a line of questioning on Costa. Conte says the striker is targeted and it is easy to see why given Costa’s inability to resist reacting to goading by opposition players.”Diego is growing in these situations in the last game, he showed great attitude,” Conte said yesterday. “He is passionate but I want him to put his passion into the football in the right way.”It’s one of the many subplots in what could be a thrilling game under the Stamford Bridge lights, considering the start to the season made by Chelsea and Liverpool.Liverpool has scored four goals in each of their wins over both Arsenal and Leicester, and also gained a point from a draw at Tottenham. Aside from a disappointing 2-0 loss at Burnley, Klopp’s side has been impressive especially the fluid forward line of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and new signing Sadio Mane.Only Manchester City, who has won all four of their games, has more points than Chelsea so far this season.And if Costa shows passion on the field, Klopp and Conte are possibly the most animated Premier League coaches on the touchline. Like in last weekend’s Manchester derby when Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho went head to head, there could be as much focus on the coaches’ technical area as on the field at Stamford Bridge.Here are some other things to watch out for this weekend:LUIZ STARTSDavid Luiz will make his first appearance in his second spell at Chelsea after Conte confirmed yesterday that the Brazilian will replace injured John Terry at centre back.Terry hurt his ankle against Swansea and was ruled out for 10 days.Luiz was signed from Paris Saint-Germain for a reported 32 million pounds (US$42 million) on the final day of the transfer window, about 20 million pounds less than Chelsea sold him to PSG for in 2014.CITY’S RUNMan City puts their winning start to the season on the line at home to Bournemouth, having taken their run of successive victories to seven by beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.Pep Guardiola still hasn’t tasted defeat as City manager.After his hat-trick against Moenchengladbach, Sergio Aguero drops out of the team for tomorrow’s match. He is serving the second match of a three-game domestic suspension for elbowing an opponent.OTHER GAMESManchester United manager Jose Mourinho will hope a Europa League match at Feyenoord yesterday doesn’t take too much out of the team for a Premier League match at Watford on Sunday.Also Sunday, it’s: Tottenham vs Sunderland; Crystal Palace vs Stoke; and Southampton vs Swansea.Tomorrow it’s Hull vs Arsenal; Leicester vs Burnley; West Bromwich Albion vs West Ham and Everton vs Middlesbrough.last_img read more

The interview remains critical in the NBA draft process

Most of the furniture was taken out of several rooms on the 15th and 16th floor of the hotel in downtown Chicago. There’s a couple tables, a few chairs, and when the doors open to those suites draft hopefuls can make or break their futures in 20 minutes. This is where the interviews happen for the draft, where teams meet players and ask them about everything from their family histories to their thoughts on highway safety before investing millions of dollars. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)CHICAGO — The elevator stopped at the 16th floor of the swanky hotel, and after a few nervous steps down the hallway a soon-to-be professional athlete was ready to face perhaps the most unpredictable part of the NBA draft process.The interview.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ “Is this just about money?”They asked the player what he thought of his teammates in college, how he deals with teammates that he doesn’t like, how he reacts to criticism. One of the interviewers has turned his chair around, another has his feet up on an unused chair and there were even a couple moments of laughter. Almost out of nowhere, there was a very specific question about a block-charge call the player was involved in during a game this past season, and how he reacted to a referee about the call not going his way.The player slid down in his chair a little bit.“How’d you even know about that?” he asked, sheepishly.The time flies by, the interview wraps and the player was due in a few minutes one floor down for another of his seven meetings scheduled throughout the day. Everyone stands, handshakes happen all around, and just like that, it was over. The notebooks close, and the player is walked to the door by the coach who pats him on the back twice while saying “you did great.”The kid stepped into the hall, the door closed, and that was it.Every team does interviews differently, but for the most part the setup was the same — cleared-out hotel room, about 30 minutes per session, somewhere between five to 10 people in the room to greet the player. By nightfall and the end of the day’s meetings, everyone is exhausted. Michael Porter Jr., the Missouri player who will be a lottery pick, couldn’t even remember how many teams he met with on Day 1.“It’s all on my phone,” he said, as he started running down the list.There have been some famous, or infamous, stories of how draft combine interviews have gone in recent years.Many NFL hopefuls have said they’ve been asked about their sexuality; Jeff Ireland, when he was the general manager of the Miami Dolphins, made headlines in 2010 for asking Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute. The Minnesota Timberwolves have been asking players for a couple of years if they speed up or slow down at yellow lights — it’s a question seeking insight not into their traffic habits, but their ability to make split-second decisions. The Detroit Pistons brought a virtual reality setup into their interviews this year, much to the delight of players and something that will likely be copied for years to come given how much of a hit it was. The draft hopefuls were presented with about 12 scenarios when they had the VR headsets on, and were told to assess what to do in the various situations.And the Portland Trail Blazers went deep into psyches, with a sports performance psychologist asking players a series of questions to determine their personality traits.“So accurate,” said Brian Bowen, who eventually removed himself from draft consideration but will still seek a pro career since the NCAA isn’t granting the former Louisville recruit eligibility at South Carolina for the 2018-19 season. “It was crazy.”Kevin Huerter, who is leaving Maryland after two seasons and could get selected as early as the middle of the first round, said some teams — San Antonio and Golden State in particular — were more in-depth than some other clubs were with him during the combine interviews.“Pick one moment in time that describes your personality,” Huerter said he was asked during the Warriors meeting. “I thought that was a really good question.”While one player said he was asked to participate in a staring contest, truly bizarre tales seemed nonexistent.“I don’t let it get there,” Miami’s Bruce Brown Jr. said. “That’s just my personality, to bring everybody up and make everybody smile. Every interview went great.”There was plenty of basketball played at the combine, plenty of on-court testing and evaluation going on, and the sharing of medical information is of enormous value to the teams. There have been more workouts for individual teams since the combine, and more interviews. But teams will review notes from sessions at the combine before Thursday night.“It’s all about business,” said Duke’s Wendell Carter Jr., someone who will almost certainly be a lottery pick and prepared for that by meeting with most of the teams that have top-14 selections in this draft during his time in Chicago last month. “At the next level, there’s no more just playing the game.” Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls “Relax, man,” the coach said to the player, an early entry candidate, as he sat down. “We’re just trying to get to know you.”Water was offered, and the chat began.A couple of people were taking handwritten notes, the focus clear by the fact that no one is checking their phones, and the interview was more of a conversation than an interrogation. There was an order to things, with five team staffers asking the bulk of the questions, each getting roughly the same amount of time to play their respective role.“What would your family tell us about you?”“How many cellphones do you have?”ADVERTISEMENT Down in the lobby, Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka of the Los Angeles Lakers chatted with familiar faces and pretended not to notice random fans taking selfies with them in the background. Agents held court with other agents, Clippers coach Doc Rivers talked with some journalists and a couple dozen people were outside with their phones ready to snap pictures of whoever was walking in next.But upstairs, high above the bustle and din of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the real action was happening.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThere were probably about 300 interviews conducted over two days in the Windy City during the draft combine. Those chats — more than perhaps the basketball that was played that week — give teams their best insight into a prospect and help decision-makers determine which players will merit multi-million-dollar investments at Thursday’s NBA draft. The Associated Press was granted access to one of the sessions.The 25-minute meeting was held in a room that had its usual furniture — bed, television, dressers — cleared out for two couches and a table with eight chairs.

US, Guyana pledge greater partnership

first_img… as US celebrates 240th IndependenceThe Guyana Government joined the United States Embassy in Georgetown to celebrate the country’s 240thUS Ambassador to Guyana Perry Holloway pledges commitment to Guyana before a roomful of attendees in observance of the USA Independence Day. The packed-to-capacity reception ceremony was hosted at the Marriott Hotel Guyana (Marceano Narine photo)Independence Day, which was observed on July 4.Red, white and blue decorated the halls of one of the largest ballrooms of the Marriott Hotel Guyana to welcome the gargantuan crowd of esteemed guests who turned out in their brightest attire to take part in the celebrations.Delivering remarks at the reception, US Ambassador to Guyana, Perry Holloway reflected the advancements made between the two countries over the years.He noted that in 1966, the US turned over the lease of the Atkinson Airfield to the new country of Guyana. This airfield is now known as the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, the country’s main international airport.He emphasised too that during 18 years of the worst economic times Guyana had seen, the United States provided significant assistance so there could be food in the country.Holloway outlined too that US President Jimmy Carter and others have participated in a number of national elections as observers, providing support and advice at key moments.He reflected on the efforts made in creating a better environment of equal rights for all people, including women, children and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.He also highlighted the tremendous support the US has provided to Guyana in terms of educational development, security, health, social issues, and environmental matters. The Ambassador noted that the two States have shared turbulent times, as he spoke of the unfortunate Jonestown massacre.Nonetheless, he noted that through the good times and the bad, the two countries will continue to work together for the betterment of all citizens.“You will agree when I say that even the best of relationships have their ups and downs. For 50 years we have been friends. I like to think that most of the time our interests have coincided and we have worked together, but like in all relationships, we have had our moments,” he stated.In closing, Ambassador Holloway toasted to a prosperous and inclusive Guyana that will be good for its population, the region and the USA.Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, in delivering President David Granger’s remarks, underscored how grateful Guyana has been over the years for the assistance received from the USA in all areas of development.President Granger was otherwise engaged at the Caribbean Community Heads of Government forum and could not attend the event. “Guyana and the United States must continue to model cooperation agreements that address the respective interests of all our countries,” he stated, alluding to problems such as drug trafficking and the fight against HIV/AIDS.In closing, Nagamootoo toasted to the good health of USA President Barrack Obama as he wished the country a happy fourth of July.last_img read more
