Bradley out to earn respect

first_imgSWANSEA, Wales (AP): Being a pioneer doesn’t sit comfortably with Bob Bradley. “The American stuff I can cover in 30 seconds,” Bradley said yesterday at his Swansea presentation as the first American to manage a Premier League club. “Then I can push that out the door.” After a long pause to gather his thoughts, the former United States coach continued his answer in a modest hotel in the south Wales city with a population of less than 250,000. “With football in the United States, we have always understood we have to earn respect,” said Bradley, who left French second-tier club Le Havre on Monday. “When I was with the national team, every time we got a chance to play in Europe, the players and I would understand, ‘Today is one more day where we can show what the game is like in our country,’ so in some ways, this helps. I am proud what I have been able to do. “This stuff about pioneer, I’m not an American manager. I’m a football manager.” And he is plunging himself straight into a scrap to prevent Swansea from being relegated, with Francesco Guidolin fired after winning only one of the first seven league games. “We have got to find a way to restore confidence,” Bradley said. But Bradley is determined to seize the opportunity. Throughout the arduous years, from working in dangerous conditions in Egypt to the edge of the Arctic Circle, Bradley always hoped to land a job in the top flight in a leading European league. The 58-year-old New Jersey native was linked to Premier League jobs in the media, but rarely came close. “You guys have written my name a few times,” Bradley said. “Most of the times, I never got on a shortlist, maybe once. In those kind of situations, the decision-makers may not know who I am.” What helped at Swansea was the club having American owners, just like at Le Havre. Steve Kaplan, a minority owner and executive vice-chairman of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies, and Jason Levien, a part-owner of DC United, took control of Swansea in July. Bradley made his name as a coach internationally at the 2009 Confederations Cup, where the Americans beat European champion Spain en route to the final. The US team followed it up by reaching the second round at the 2010 World Cup, but he was fired in 2011 and is still aggrieved with the circumstances. At his first Swansea news conference, Bradley complained that Jurgen Klinsmann “was already jockeying for the job” while broadcasting at the 2010 World Cup. Bradley took a bold step by moving to the Middle East to coach Egypt through the Arab Spring uprising. The ‘American Pharaoh’ – as he became known – gained admiration there by staying through the violence but left after failing to qualify for the 2014 World Cup. Bradley moved to Stabaek, which he departed after securing qualification for the Europa League last year. He impressed in his next job, too, in France, where Le Havre only missed out on promotion to the top division in May on goal difference.last_img read more

Taylor shines with half-century at Big Bash

first_imgWest Indies captain Stafanie Taylor ended an otherwise disappointing Women’s Big Bash campaign on a high note when she stroked a half-century to see defending champions Sydney Thunder to a consolation five-wicket victory over Perth Scorchers yesterday.Entering the contest at Lilac Hill Park on a run of two consecutive ‘ducks’, the right-handed Taylor turned around her form with an enterprising 62 that anchored a Thunder run chase to overhaul a tricky target of 132.She lost opening partner Rachael Haynes for 22 off 17 balls at 27 for one in the fifth over, but then put on 57 for the second wicket with captain Alex Blackwell (26) and a further 36 for the third wicket with Indian star Harmanpreet Kaur (16 not out) as the visitors got home off the first ball of the final over.Jamaican Taylor faced 54 balls and counted seven fours and a six before perishing in the 18th over with Thunder in sight of victory.Earlier, Scorchers finished on 131 for four off their 20 overs, after opting to bat first.Opener Nicole Bolton struck 53 and captain Suzie Bates got 28, the pair posting 63 for the second wicket to keep the innings alive.Thunder finished three from bottom of the eight-team standings on 12 points to miss out on the play-offs while Scorchers finished second on 16 points to qualify.At Bellerive Oval in Hobart, Taylor’s Windies teammate Hayley Matthews played a crucial role in helping Hobart Hurricanes defeat Melbourne Stars by four wickets, and reach the final four of the tournament.Set 136 for victory, Hobart got home with a ball to spare, after gathering the 12 runs required off the final over.Captain Heather Knight top-scored with 35 off 26 deliveries, Amy Satterthwaite weighed in with 26 while the teenaged Matthews got 24, as they propelled Hobart’s run chase.Batting at number five, Matthews played a crucial role in adding 38 for the fourth wicket with Satterthwaite before going bowled by leg-spinner Kristen Beams (3-11).Earlier, Matthews grabbed two for 23 with from three overs of off-spin as Stars, opting to bat first, finished on 135 for eight off their 20 overs.- CMClast_img read more

Footballer regrets quitting school

first_img “I just want to tell all the youths that when they are in school and playing football, or doing any other sport, they should do their school work first,” he said. “I also believe it is important for parents and friends who know students who are good in sports to encourage them to stay in school and complete secondary or even tertiary education.” Palache captained May Pen FC to the semi-finals of the Clarendon Division One competition last year, qualifying them for the Major League. He, however, quit the team as he was not being paid and feared that if he got injured, he would have to foot his own medical bills. He has, however, not given up on his dream of playing professionally again and says if a team comes along that can at least help him if he gets an injury, he would be ready to pick up the sport again. Pamplona, SPAIN: SportsMax La Liga Experience winner Calvin Palache watched in awe as his football idol Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid defeated Osasuna on Saturday. Palache and his partner, Tishana Sharpe, were at the stadium to witness the win courtesy of SportsMax and La Liga, but the spectacle brought back memories of his own playing days. The 28-year-old was once playing at the highest level in Jamaica, having represented Humble Lion in the National Premier League, and he still has ambitions of getting back to the top locally and even playing abroad if possible. But to this day, the Clarendon native still regrets his decision to quit school and take up football full time – a mistake he does not want other talented youngsters to make. “I stopped going to school just after completing lower sixth,” Palache revealed. “I didn’t go back to sixth form as I started playing and earning money.” Palache, who was captain of Humble Lion’s under-21 team and who also made first team appearances, revealed that it was a constant struggle for his parents to afford to send him to school, so he was happy to have been able to earn money for himself. However, upon turning 22 and no longer being able to represent the under-21 team, there was a change of coach at the senior level, and he did not figure prominently in his plans. “I started playing fewer games, and instead of getting paid every month, I started getting paid like every three months,” Palache said. “And I got a daughter, so I couldn’t work with that and had to quit football and use my six CXC subjects to get a job as a security guard.” The 28-year-old, who has now fathered a second daughter, regrets not having finished upper sixth as he believes that he would have at least been able to secure a better job.

James also took a pointed swipe at President Donald Trump, calling him the “so-called president.”While holding his young daughter, Zhuri, James stood on stage before an excited crowd of students, parents and others connected to the LeBron James Family Foundation and delivered his emotional message.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

And that’s the only way we’re going to be able to conquer something as one.”Then, James, who endorsed Hillary Clinton last year and introduced her at a rally in Cleveland just two days before the election, went at Trump, whom he has criticized in the past. 2 nabbed in Bicol drug stings Now in its sixth year, James’ foundation has brought hope to children who might not have any otherwise. If the students meet certain criteria, stay in the program and graduate, they can receive full tuition to the University of Akron.“That means everything,” Latasha McCullough said as she sat with her husband, Arthur, and children Arlissa and Arsea while waiting for James to appear on stage.The McCulloughs have been directly impacted by James and his work, and they’re forever grateful.“He doesn’t have to do anything,” Latasha said. “All he is responsible for are his kids, his family, go to work and provide for his, but he does it for his city. He does it for everybody, everybody’s kids. All the things he didn’t have growing up, he’s giving it to our kids with no problem and he’s not being selfish. It’s constant and consistent, you earn what you get.”James has grown his foundation beyond its initial goals of tackling the city’s drop-out rate. Next year, the charity will open the I Promise School, designed to help students who have already fallen behind and need extra attention.Michelle Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation, is awed by what the group has accomplished.James has led the way.“It’s never enough with him,” she said. “He is always pushing, just like on the basketball court, pushing and pushing. I could have never imagined what we have done and are doing, but with his belief and what he wants to do and his drive and his ability to put all these partners around us. We can’t fail.“It started out with working with kids and changing a child, then OK, we got the family involved and we learned that some didn’t have their high school diplomas, so we broke down those barriers.
