THE HOOPS REPORT: KILMARNOCK BEAT CELTIC IN LEAGUE CUP FINAL

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN GLASGOW: Kilmarnock won the Scottish Communities League Cup for the first time in their history today.It was a hugely disappointing day for the Hoops fans who travelled to Hampden including a large Donegal contingent.It just wasn’t Celticis day. Celtic’s Gary Hooper, Anthony Stokes and Scott Brown and Killie’s Dean Shiels and Paul Heffernan all had efforts saved in a frenetic first half.Killie keeper Cammy Bell was the man of the match pulling off incredible save after incredible save.Bell denied Stokes and Victor Wanyama after the break.Dieter van Tornhout headed Kilmarnock ahead six minutes from the end and Celtic could not find a leveller, with Stokes booked for diving when most fans thought it should have been a penalty. Having lost in the final of this competition on six previous occasions, Killie were also trying to win their first trophy since 1997’s Scottish Cup triumph.“You have to believe to achieve and we worked hard on getting the boys to believe,” Killie manager Kenny Shiels told BBC Scotland after the 1-0 win over Celtic at Hampden.“Celtic are a young team and there is always that strain on them to succeed, so we talked up their Treble chances.“I knew it would be difficult for them if we kept the ball because Celtic were the team under pressure.”Kilmarnock goalkeeper Cammy Bell several fine saves and substitute Dieter Van Tornhout, celebrating his birthday, won it for the underdogs with a header on 84 minutes. “Celtic are a fantastic team and they will go on to to be very successful,” added Shiels.“But they were gone in the last 10 minutes.”Neil Lennon complained about the penalty claim, but said his hurt at losing was put into perspective by a suspected heart attack suffered by Killie’ player Liam Kelly’s dad at the game.“My sympathies go to [Liam] and his family,” added Lennon. “All my thoughts go with the family. “It makes my pain pale into insignificance to what he’s feeling.”Congratulations to Kilmarnock.THE HOOPS REPORT: KILMARNOCK BEAT CELTIC IN LEAGUE CUP FINAL was last modified: March 18th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:THE HOOPS REPORT: KILMARNOCK BEAT CELTIC IN LEAGUE CUP FINALlast_img read more

‘Most shameless player in football’ – Neymar slammed for crying

It wasn’t even the knockout rounds— Taintless Red (@TaintlessRed) June 22, 2018 Neymar scored Brazil’s second of two injury time goals as they snatched a late 2-0 victory over Costa Rica on Friday and was then seen crying at the final whistle.The Ticos gave a valiant effort but were ultimately beaten by the Selecao as Philippe Coutinho found the breakthrough in the first additional minute, before Neymar tapped in a second.

Bruins skating on some thin ice

first_img “We can be a lot better,” UCLA coach Karl Dorrell said. “Defensively, we woke up at the right time, but we have to begin to fix some things,and to do some things better through the normal course of the game.” Brian Dohn can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! At some point the magic will run out. It always does. UCLA, which moved up four spots to No. 8 in the Associated Press poll, trailed Washington by 10 points entering the fourth quarter, but won 21-17 three games ago. The Bruins (6-0, 3-0 Pac-10) were 12 points behind California in the final 15 minutes, and won 47-40 two weeks ago. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The Bruins spotted Washington State a pair of 21-point leads in the first half, then trailed 38-21 in the fourth quarter before rallying to force overtime, and eventually winning on tailback Maurice Drew’s 1-yard plunge. It makes for great theater, and has created a buzz around Westwood not felt since 2001, when the Bruins were ranked as high as fourth. Some credit the turnaround at Washington State to UCLA offensive coordinator Tom Cable, who verbally thrashed the defense at halftime. Cable, according to a few players, tossed in a few expletives and said they were playing, well, soft. But there were other adjustments, like having the linebackers get up the field more to force Cougars tailback Jerome Harrison to run from sideline to sideline rather than up the field. The Bruins also got their safeties more involved, and in the fourth quarter and overtime Harrison had 10 rushing yards — 240 less than he had the first three quarters. But why are these adjustments being made at halftime? Why not after the Cougars jumped to a 21-0 lead on the first play of the second quarter? center_img The euphoria of fourth-quarter comebacks overshadowed everything else the last two weeks, but after needing a third consecutive last-minute score to offset a terrible start, UCLA knows the situation is problematic. Even as players made the long walk from Martin Stadium to the visitor’s locker room after Saturday’s come-from-way-behind, 44-41 overtime win at Washington State, several shook their heads in disgust about needing to rally from 17 points down in the fourth quarter. last_img read more

Marvel’s superhero profits lose strength

first_img Marvel has traditionally licensed its main characters, such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk, to major Hollywood studios in exchange for licensing fees. But with the global box office take of the upcoming slate expected to be much lower than the $800 million that the first and second Spider-Man films each took in, Marvel is forecasting very few contributions from film licensing next year, spokesman David Collins said. He also noted that each film had different economic arrangements with the studios, but he declined to discuss those details. Marvel is hoping to capture a bigger share of the profits from future movies based on its characters by funding and producing some future films on its own, based on lesser-known characters such as Captain America, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and Luke Cage. However, Bear Stearns analyst Glen Reid has described the terms of the financing arrangements Marvel made as “somewhat onerous.” In a note to investors, Reid said Marvel’s decision to take on production of some of its own films was a “path fraught with risk” since it won’t have a large portfolio of films in the works to reduce volatility. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial had expected earnings per share of 30 cents on revenue of $100.3 million. Toy sales fell to $22.1 million from $48.2 million a year ago, and licensing sales dropped to $33.2 million from $64.2 million due to lower contributions from Spider-Man licenses, compared with last year when the movie “Spider-Man 2” was released in theaters. Marvel said it now expects to earn between $38 million and $53 million in 2006, far below the $111 million to $114 million it expects to earn in 2005. Morton Handel, company chairman, warned that 2006 looks to be a “difficult year for both toys and licensing.” Marvel also cited several other factors for the poor outlook in 2006 – “nominal” contributions from the three films based on Marvel characters due out next year, “X-Men 3,” “Ghost Rider” and “The Punisher 2”; $5 million in expenses as it builds up its own movie production arm; and $16 million in interest costs as it creates a new $525 million credit facility to fund new movies. NEW YORK – Marvel Entertainment Inc. reported a 32 percent plunge in third-quarter profits Wednesday and warned investors its earnings next year would fall well below analysts’ forecasts as revenue dries up from the blockbuster success of “Spider-Man 2.” Marvel also said its earnings from toy licensing would drop next year after the success of its Fantastic Four toys this year, and noted that it would incur significant expenses as it ramps up its own production of films based on Marvel comics characters. Investors punished Marvel’s stock after the announcements, sending the shares down $3.98, or 22.1 percent, to $14.06 on the New York Stock Exchange in heavy volume of 13 million shares versus average volume of 790,000 shares. Marvel’s net income fell to $23.4 million, or 23 cents per share, from $34.4 million, or 30 cents per share, a year ago.

Le Classique headlines French Ligue One match-day 11

first_imgThis will be the 97th La Classique official meeting. (PHOTOS/Courtesy)The 97th La Classique between PSG and Marseille will take center stage this weekend when the French Ligue One returns.Two of French football’s biggest sides will face off on Sunday at the Parc de Princes with 8 points separating them on the table.PSG come into the game top of the standings with 24 points while Marseille are 4th after gathering 16 points from their first 10-games.Tomas Tuchel’s side are starting to gain momentum after a wobbly start to the season as per their standards.The Parisians have won all of their last four games in all competitions including three in the League.The 4-1 win away to Nice last time out was their 8th in Ligue one this campaign having lost the other two of their 10 games so far.They started the season with several injury issues but the situation is starting to ease up as a host of first-team players are now fit to feature.The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Thilo Kherer and Julian Draxler have all recovered with the former two featuring in PSG’s last two games. For Kherer and Draxler, they both took part in training this week and it remains to be seen whether they will be fit enough to play on Sunday.The only injury concerns for Paris are Idrissa Gueye and Neymar Jr who will miss the game as they are still out. Neymar is two weeks away from recovery while the Senegalese midfielder is expected back next weekend away to Dijon.Neymar is still out injured.For Marseille, after going four games minus victory, they returned to winning ways last weekend as they defeated Strasbourg 2-0 at home.The victory was their 4th for the season but it comes as major motivation for them heading into Le Classique.Andre Villas Boaz’s side will be without Alvaro Gonzalez and Florien Thauvin for the game as they are both long term absentees.This is one of the one-sided rivalries across Europe in recent times as Marseille have not defeated PSG since beating them 3-0 in November 2011.Since then, PSG have won 15 of the 18 preceding fixtures while the other three have ended in draws.Last season, Tuchel’s men did a double over their rivals including a 3-1 win in the reverse fixture.The French Ligue One match-day 11 will kick-off with an interesting affair between high-flying Nantes and a rejuvenated Monaco side at the Stade de la Beaujoire on Friday night.Nantes have so far been in good form this season and currently sit second on the standings with 19 points, five behind the leaders PSG.However, last weekend, they lost 1-0 away to Metz, a result that put an end to their three game-winning run.Nantes climb up the table has been due to their strong defensive displays as they have conceded just six games all season.Their worry will be the fact that they have not been scoring enough, finding the back of the net on only 9 occasions so far.For the Visit of Monaco, they will be minus the injured Rene Krhin and Marcus Coco while Imran Louza is suspended.Monaco, on the other hand, have been improving of late and climbing up the table.After winning just one of their opening six games, Leandro Jardim’s side have lost only a single game in their last five whilst winning three including coming from behind to beat Rennes 3-2 last weekend.They may not be in the position they would have wanted to be in but 14th is not so bad as per the start to the season that Monaco had to endure.Goalkeeper Diego Benaglio joins Stephen Jovetic in the treatment room as Monaco’s injured players who will not feature on Friday.When the two sides met in the reverse fixture last season, Monaco defeated Nates 3-1, one of three consecutive victories for the Principality club in this duel.Nantes have won only one of the last 13 meetings between the two sides with the solitary victory coming in a 1-0 result in November 2017.The other fixtures to look out for in the Ligue One this weekend will Bordeaux’s visit to Lille on Saturday afternoon, Lyon hosting Metz on the same day and Saint Etienne entertaining Amiens on Sunday.French Ligue One match-day 11 fixturesFriday, 25-10-2019-Nantes vs Monaco @9:45Saturday, 26-10-2019-Lille vs Bordeaux @6:30pm-Strasbourg vs Nice @9pm-Brest vs Dijon  @9pm-Lyon vs Metz  @9pm-Reims vs Nimes  @9pm-Montpellier vs Angers  @9pmSunday, 27-10-2019-Rennes vs Toulouse @5pm-Saint Etienne vs Amiens @7pm-PSG vs Marseille @10pmComments Tags: French Ligue OneMarseillePSGtoplast_img read more
