Jurgen Klopp unveiled: New Liverpool boss targets end to title drought

first_img Jurgen Klopp Jurgen Klopp outlined his ambition to end Liverpool’s 25-year title drought when he was unveiled as the club’s new manager on Friday.The charismatic German gave his first press conference at Anfield after signing a three-year contract – with the option of a further 12 months – to succeed Brendan Rodgers.He urged supporters to be patient as he looks to implement his philosophy at the club, but he admitted he will be disappointed if he doesn’t lead the club to title glory.“Twenty-five years ago (Liverpool’s last title) is a long time. In this time all people have tried to get better, to improve, to take the next title,” he said.“But history is only the base for us. It is all the people are interested in but you don’t take history in your backpack and carry it with you for 25 years.“We can wait for it but I don’t want to say we can wait 20 years.“If we sit here in four years I think we’ll have won one title – I’m pretty sure.”Klopp impressed the assembled media, showing humility and speaking elegantly in both English and German.Insisting he is no genius, the 48-year-old declared himself the ‘Normal One’ after he was asked how he would compare himself to Chelsea manager José Mourinho, who famously labelled himself as the ‘Special One’ in his first press conference in 2004.“I don’t want to describe myself. I’m a totally normal guy, I’m the Normal One,” he said.On whether he can become an Anfield great, he added: “I am a normal guy from the Black Forest. I don’t compare myself to these genius managers in the history of Liverpool. “It is not my part to think about this. Not one of these great managers said at their first press conference ‘I want to be a legend.’”Klopp is only the 20th manager in Liverpool’s illustrious history, and he declared his pride at taking on the job.“It’s the biggest honour I can imagine, one of the biggest clubs in the world,” said the 48-year-old. “I’ve been given the opportunity to help in this situation, but it’s not so difficult as some people in this room think.”Asked what Liverpool’s style of play would be under him, he responded: “Emotion inside, speed. Transition game. You will see this. All the things that make football interesting to me, I want to see on the pitch.“In this time, we have to win points. I said this word, full throttle football. It will be full throttle football.”Jurgen Klopp’s first press conference as Liverpool boss: Best quotes as new man makes impressive start 1last_img read more

Highland favorite for A.V. swim meet

first_imgHighland High’s and Quartz Hill High’s girls’ swim teams won’t compete against each other until April 15 at the Antelope Valley Invitational, but Lancaster coach Amanda Orlando might know something the rest of the Golden League doesn’t when handicapping the first of three showdowns. “I honestly believe (Highland) will win,” she said. “Highland’s girls have so many club swimmers that I think they have a very good chance to beat Quartz Hill.” At the beginning of the season, Orlando was optimistic her team could compete with Highland and possibly finish second in league. After watching the Bulldogs compete March 18 at the Rubidoux Relays in Riverside, she had to reassess the Eagles’ chances. “They brought two buses full of kids,” said Orlando, whose swimmers train at Eastside Pool, the same practice facility used by Quartz Hill. “They finished third overall, and they looked really strong. We only had half our roster there (and finished sixth), but I was impressed with Highland.” Lancaster returned Melissa Higgins and sisters Alicia and Falicia Mazzella from last year’s third-place team and added freshman twins Kaitlyn and Kristen Guercio, giving them the front-line talent to attempt challenging Highland and Quartz Hill. The Bulldogs also added some talent, with Ashley Cecil, Sarah Pino and Jenna Poitras joining an impressive lineup featuring Marissa Cecil. Their presence helped offset the arrivals of Sara Barron, Brittany Blankenship and Lauren Hughes at Quartz Hill. “Since I practice with Quartz Hill, I see all their swimmers,” Orlando said. “I think having Sarah Pino and Jenna Poitras is really big for Highland.” Balancing act: As much as Quartz Hill’s decade-long dominance of the Antelope Valley has been about individual talent, the Rebels also have relied heavily their depth to win dual meets and league championships. Highland coaches Judy Remy and Mike Timperio have done their best to even the odds this season. “It’s awesome, because you’re seeing more competition across the board,” Quartz Hill boys’ coach Mark Thibault said. “I was talking to Mike (Thursday) night, and we were talking about how we can’t wait for this to happen. It’s a good thing for everybody involved.” Two is better than one: Moving the Antelope Valley Invitational to April 15 could benefit Lancaster’s girls in their attempt to beat Highland in an April 12 dual meet at Marie Kerr Park. The daylong invitational at Eastside Pool was scheduled for March 11 but was postponed because of inclement weather. Lancaster lost to the Bulldogs 264-261 at last year’s event, but Orlando believes getting an advance scouting report three days before the meet might increase the Eagles’ chances of knocking off Highland. “I think it’s an advantage,” she said. “It’ll give us an opportunity to see what kind of competition we have and see what areas we need to work on.” The April 12 dual meet will be Lancaster’s first following spring break. The Eagles were scheduled to compete against Eastside next week, but the first-year school doesn’t field a varsity team. Building up: Quartz Hill returns from spring break with meets against Antelope Valley and Palmdale, then concludes the regular season with two invitationals – Antelope Valley and Royal of Simi Valley – and showdowns against Lancaster and Highland, all in a two-week span. “It’s going to be a huge month for us, with some serious competition,” Thibault said.

Donegal man in attempt to climb Ireland’s 26 ‘High Peaks’ in record time

first_imgDonegal man Shaun Stewart, along with his friend Lonan O’Farrell from Galway, are aiming to beat the fastest time known for climbing Ireland’s 26 High Peaks this week.Stewart, who hails from Ards in Creeslough, and O’Farrell will begin their challenge on Mweelrea Mountain in Co. Mayo on Thursday, work their way around Ireland from the west and finish at Mount Errigal on Saturday.They will aim to beat the fastest known time of 87 Hours and 50 minutes. “The conditions will be challenging” says Stewart, “but we believe that we can do it in record time. We have a fantastic team on board to help with sponsorship, organising and support crew.“Arthur McMahon from Team Donegal Oil along with Rory Kennedy have been instrumental to working out the logistics, navigation and getting everything we need for the challenge prepared in advance.“Donegal Road Trekkers Denis Ferry, Leslie O’Donnell and Paul Doherty will crew with us and they are no strangers to taking on challenges like this and we are delighted to have their experience on board. We also are delighted that Colm Dillon from Manor Motors Opel will provide us with a Opel Vivaro which will house everything we need for the journey. Our aim is to complete the challenge in approx 72 hours, and we are hopeful that we can do it”.A GPS tracker has been set up so the duration of the challenge will be shared on social media so everyone can track their performance online in realtime. As Mount Errigal will be their last mountain to climb & they hope that there will be a huge show of support when they will reach the top of Mount Errigal to complete the challenge & record their time.Commenting on the challenge sponsor nd supporting crew Arthur McMahon said: “Myself and Rory Kennedy are delighted to be able to sponsor and crew for Shaun and Lonan and are delighted that they will undertake this challenge under the Team Donegal Oil umbrella.“We have worked out a route together as a team along with the three lads and Denis Ferry, Lesie O’Donnell and Paul Doherty from the Donegal Road Trekkers, that we feel will work for their challenge & do it in the record time the lads have set.“We will be travelling through all of Ireland & Northern Ireland’s 32 counties & already have received huge support from people all over Ireland who have offered their support at each peak along the way. We would like as many people as possible to join us at Mount Errigal on Saturday 22nd when the lads will climb Mount Errigal and end their challenge at the top”.Lonan & Shaun have decided that they would also like to raise some money for charity and Lonan has chosen a local Galway charity, The Play Therapy Galway, Lakeview School, Galway. Shaun has chosen Crumlin Children’s Hospital as his charity. Donations are pouring in already for both charities. Shaun chose Crumlin Children’s Hospital as his little niece Cara was born with a condition called Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency (PFFD).This is a rare birth defect that affects the pelvis, particularly the hip bone, and the femur. The disorder may affect one side or both, with the hip being deformed and the leg shortened. At birth Cara’s right leg was approximately 1.5cm shorter than her left leg.As she continues to grow so does the discrepancy between her leg lengths. Currently her limb difference is 7cm and this will continue to increase. Cara wears a shoe that has a raise of 7 cm and she manages great with these.The good news is we hope that Cara will be able to have lengthening surgeries. It is uncertain yet as to how many surgeries Cara will need as each case of PFFD is individualised and there is no set plan of treatment that suits every patient. Lengthening surgery is a slow and painful process and the Limb Reconstruction Unit in Our Ladies Children’s Hospital, Crumlin have the expertise and skills necessary to carry out these procedures. Cara walked at 13 months and loves running and climbing like every other two year old. Cara and her family will be there to cheer on Shaun, Lonan and the crew as they take on Errigal the highest peak in Donegal to complete their challenge.If you would like to support or donate to their charities, you can find all the details on the challenge, updates & their live progress from 20th – 22nd April by following their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/highpeaksfktchallenge.Donegal man in attempt to climb Ireland’s 26 ‘High Peaks’ in record time was last modified: April 19th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:CreesloughCrumlinErrigalOur Ladies Children’s Hospitalshaun stewartlast_img read more

Mother’s Day hero

first_imgMy wife is my hero. When I was diagnosed with stage four non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma nearly five years ago, I didn’t know how long I had left to live, but I knew my wife would be at my side. She came with me to all of my appointments. She was there for me at my chemotherapy. She was there for me when I had radiation. She was there for me when they told me I wasn’t responding to treatment, and they didn’t know why. She was there for me with a shoulder to cry on and there for me to have someone with whom to cry. She was there for me when I was in the hospital. She would drop off our three small children and drive 120 miles round trip to spend a few hours with me, knowing this was the highlight of my day and knowing it was going to be pleasant. My wife is an incredible woman, a talented kindergarten teacher, a wonderful wife, an unbelievable mother and my best friend. Jeff Schleien Simi Valley Note to teenagers Be thankful for your mother, who carried you in her womb and felt you grow inside of her. As you grow into your teenage years, your mother still wants to protect you and love you. She over-worries about you, so she over-protects you. She over-protects you because she over-loves you. You don’t understand her love, so you get mad at her. You look at her with anger and say, “Mother, I hate you.” This breaks her heart. You say you hate her, but when she is gone, you will realize that no one else on Earth loves you like your mother. The day my own mother died is the day the sun stopped shining for me. Mother is warmth, mother is sweetness. Only God understands the depth of a mother’s love for her child. Hoa Thi Le Reseda Who knew? Re: “Medicare deadline week off” (May 9): I must be misunderstanding our government. I think they want to penalize those of us who do not need or want the Medicare prescription coverage at this time. I never would have dreamed that our Congress would penalize us, like we are children who have misbehaved, for not joining their program at this time. How dare they assume we have $66 lying around to pay for something we are not using. If only they presented a plan that if we did not want to use it at this time we would have the opportunity to sign at the first of the year or on our birthdays, as other insurance companies do. Who had this idea of the penalty part, I would like to know. Watch out, baby boomers, you are next. Barbara McNally West Hills MTA fares Re: ” MTA won’t raise fares for one year” (May 9): Bus Riders Union organizer Manuel Criollo claims the MTA has a “self-imposed budget crisis” when the truth is that it created the crisis itself over the past nine years. The MTA has all but depleted its reserve funds complying with consent decree orders resulting from the BRU’s constant complaints. Another BRU demand is to spend money earmarked for rail and freeways on bus service, ignoring the fact that the MTA does not deal with a single large pot of money. The budget includes state and federal funds earmarked for capital projects and the MTA is powerless to shift that money to bus operations. Kymberleigh Richards Public affairs director, Southern California Transit Advocates Tax break Re: “House approves $70 billion in tax cuts” (May 11): How can a $70 billion tax break be considered a “cost” according to your recent headline? It is an increase in revenues to taxpayers and businesses, all of which flows into the economy and almost always increases tax revenues flowing to the government. Remember, federal and state income and corporate tax receipts are skyrocketing after the Bush tax rate cuts in recent years. Tom Kerr Calabasas Offshore oil Re: “Cuba’s deal with China, India for oil drilling” (May 9): Let’s beat these oil-addicted Asian nations’ quest for offshore oil in the Straits of Florida. The U.S. should immediately cancel our nondrilling treaty with Cuba and approve the lease of these reserves to American producers. Let’s take the initiative in claiming these huge petroleum reserves for our nation. Gene Denney Granada Hills No President Jeb Re: “Bush brother denies presidential designs” (May 11): It was Jeb who killed this country. He did it when he directed Eva Braun (Kathleen Harris) to disregard fairness in the 2000 election when “W” was appointed dictator. Jeb could have forced Florida to figure a fair way to count the votes to get an uncontroversial outcome, but didn’t have the confidence that his team would win and wasn’t man enough to accept fair results. It is the Republican way to change the rules of the game if they are not winning. Republicans are not man enough to handle the truth if it does not favor them. Joel Gossman Los Angeles Channeling the river Re: “What changed?” (Your Opinions, May 2): Actually, the Los Angeles River is mostly underground. There were areas in pristine condition, but not many. In 1938, my home, near the intersection of Ventura Boulevard and Colfax Avenue, was under water due to the L.A. River flooding. This area is the lowest point of the San Fernando Valley. Since that time, countless amounts of concrete have been deposited around the Valley, creating more runoff that must flow into the river channel. The flooding was not the first time, but it was the last. During the last 30 years, I have seen the water in the channel overflow five times. I hope you are now “unconfused.” Lisa Sarkin Studio City Don’t execute lunatics Re: “Moussaoui verdict” (Your Opinions, May 10): Maybe your other readers and I were watching different coverage of the Moussaoui trial. I saw a pathetic, deranged man whose delusions served to whip up the frenzy of Americans looking for a villain they could actually punish. Real villains were out of our reach, either because we couldn’t catch them (bin Laden et al.) or we had already tortured them and ruined our chances to put them on trial. So we loaded up both barrels and aimed at this poor lunatic who obviously had no involvement in any terror attack, except in his fevered imagination. No one can seriously believe this silly stooge was on a par with the truly frightening fanatics who did the deed. The jury was right not to sentence him to death. Americans don’t execute lunatics especially those who haven’t really done anything. Morris Schorr Woodland Hills Failed elected leaders Placing blame on Big Oil, the automakers, etc. for our current energy mess is misguided. Just like our immigration mess, blaming the illegal aliens is misguided as well. One need to look no further than our own federal government. They have failed to enforce antitrust laws against big oil companies, allowing monopolies. This is the same bunch who have failed to enforce our immigration laws. If oil companies had competition, the situation would be tolerable. When I think of Big Oil in the “alternative” fuel business, my stomach turns. Any start up alternative company can look forward to oil companies either buying them outright and shutting them down, or manipulating their price downward until the competition capitulates, all the while, our elected officials sit back and watch. Tom Fortune Canyon Country Elephant law Re: “Humane quarters right for elephants” (Their Opinions, May 8): Finally, someone gets it. Assemblyman Lloyd Levine wants to make sure that elephants, those majestic animals, are treated the way they should be enough space and no more bullhooks and chains. There ought to be a law and he is trying to make sure that it happens. Hurrah for him.

GAA: Colaisti Inis Eoghain Launch Fundraising Draw

first_imgThe Ulster Colleges football season is just over three weeks away, as Colaisti Inis Eoghain prepare for their opening game in the Rannafast Cup, while later in the year they will also compete in the Corn na nOg (November) and the Brock Cup, which will be played early in 2012.Donegal’s extended run in the All Ireland series, which saw them ousted in Sunday’s semi final, may have caught the attention of all GAA supporters in the county, with Buncrana’s Ryan Bradley being a big favourite among the fans but the focus will now switch to the domestic scene among schools and clubs at grassroots level. The Inishowen school boys already have a panel of 28 turning out for training, before returning to school this week and have been preparing quietly under the guidance of another Buncrana man, Gary Duffy who is being assisted this year by Sean Noonan, Robert Farren and Conor O Donnell. They have played one challenge game to date, defeating the Northern U15 Development squad and a number of further challenge games are planned over the next two weeks as training intensifies, before the squad is trimmed in advance of their first game against St Macartans of Monaghan in the week commencing 19th September. Meanwhile organisers of Colaisti Inis Eoghain in association with CLG Bord Inis Eoghain have organised a major fundraising draw to support the initiative, with a number of excellent prizes to be won and it is hoped that Inishowen people will get behind the draw to support the development of schools football in the peninsula. First prize is two Al Ireland Football Final tickets and an overnight stay at The Regency Hotel in Dublin, a very attractive prize despite the fact that Donegal have not made the final, second prize is a €200 shopping voucher for Supervalu in Carndonagh and third prize is a Sunday Lunch Voucher for a family of four at a top hotel in Inishowen. Lines are now available at a cost of €5 per line from all squad members, clubs and various other contacts in the Inishowen area.EndsGAA: Colaisti Inis Eoghain Launch Fundraising Draw was last modified: August 30th, 2011 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)last_img read more
