Vardy receiving death threats after Ranieri axe

first_imgLONDON (AP):Jamie Vardy has gone from Premier League champion to a target of hatred. The Leicester striker said he has received death threats amid the bitter fallout from manager Claudio Ranieri being fired by his club last month.Vardy was named as one of the players who had conversations with Leicester’s owners before Ranieri was dismissed as a result of last season’s improbable champions being plunged into a relegation scrap.Vardy’s denials about playing any role in Ranieri’s departure have not stopped some fans from targeting him and his family.”The story is out there and people pick it up and jump on it and you’re getting death threats about your family, kids, everything,” Vardy said while on international duty with England. “On social media, you name it, walking down the street. To be honest I get them every week. Football fans don’t seem to like me.”IGNORE ABUSEIt’s affecting his family, too.”I just get on with it but when people are trying to cut your missus (wife Rebekah) up while she’s driving along, with the kids in the back of the car, it’s not the best,” Vardy said. “It’s happened plenty of times. It is terrifying. All that can happen is they get banned on Twitter. People get cut up but if there’s no cameras you’re screwed.”Vardy said he tries to ignore the abuse he gets from fans as he focuses on keeping Leicester in the Premier League and prolonging the team’s incredible Champions League debut. Leicester are six points above the relegation zone and preparing to face Atletico Madrid next month in the European Cup quarter-finals.Vardy was spotted by Leicester playing for non-league side Fleetwood Town in 2012. While the 30-year-old Vardy scored 24 goals last season, he has only been on target 10 times this year.”I just get abuse at every stadium that I turn up at,” Vardy said. “To be honest, you are always going to get stick from fans. It is part and parcel of football. I’m one that carries on and winds them up a bit. Do I enjoy it? Yeah, it’s just me. I couldn’t tell you why I get it, but it’s part of the game. I am not really fussed about it. It’s fine by me.”last_img read more

No quick fix for Arsenal: Emery era begins with loss to City

But I am happy with the players because they run and they fight, and also we need (to) continue working tactically.”It was a serene afternoon on the touchline for Guardiola, just like so much of last season which ended with City setting a series of Premier League records, notably by amassing 100 points.“The desire to run and run, it was the same as the last season,” Guardiola said. “The first game away against Arsenal, nobody can deny that it’s complicated. A new manager after 20 years.”Guardiola, whose Barcelona came up against Emery as Valencia coach, is in only his third season at City.“Manchester City’s performance is showing us we need to continue in our process, improving,” Emery said. “They deserved this, the result. But we were improving (across) the 90 minutes.

He noted that the stock of Chinese investments in Liberia has reached US$300 million, making China one of the major investors in Liberia. Zhang stressed that the smooth construction of the Ministerial Complex, the new airport terminal, the annexes to the Legislature, renovation of the SKD stadium and the airport’s runway rehabilitation are indicative of China’s speed and quality.The Chinese Ambassador also noted the Agricultural Demonstration Center Project, Bamboo and Rattan Weaving and Vegetable Planting Technical Cooperation projects, including the borehole project and technical assistance project to the Liberia Broadcasting System, that are progressing steadily.

Aussies ready for hostile Honduras crowd – Behich

first_img0Shares0000Australia’s defender Aziz Behich says Australia will be ready to cope with an intimidating atmosphere when the Socceroos face Honduras at home in the first leg of their crucial World Cup playoff © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFESAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras, Nov 7 – Aziz Behich says Australia will be ready to cope with an intimidating atmosphere here Friday when the Socceroos face Honduras in the first leg of their crucial World Cup playoff.Australia will take on Honduras in the 40,000-capacity Olimpico Metropolitano Stadium in San Pedro Sula, a town once regarded as the deadliest city in Honduras because of violence linked to the drug trade. The Central Americans are aiming to qualify for the World Cup for a third straight tournament, and have often benefited from ferocious home support at the venue in the past.Behich, however, says Australia will be ready for anything the Honduras crowd can dish out in the CONCACAF-Asia playoff.“Most of the boys have played in big hostile environments,” the defender said.“We’ve done that with the national team during the qualifiers in some parts of Asia,” he told Football Federation Australia’s television channel on Monday.“It’s going to be nothing new for us, and in some ways, it’s exciting — it’s all part of football and we’re just going to go out on the park, we know what job we have to do and what the end prize is — qualifying for the World Cup.“It’s not going to be easy, but we’re full of confidence.”Behich started in the away leg of Australia’s Asia zone playoff against Syria in the previous round, and eventually won 3-2 on aggregate by the Socceroos after a tense return leg in Sydney.The 26-year-old says Australia will benefit from having already passed their playoff test against the Syrians.“The boys were full of confidence going into those game and coming out of them it’s a big boost going into these Honduras games,” Behich said.Fellow squad member Craig Goodwin, who plays for Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam, also thinks Australia will derive a competitive edge from having successfully navigated the Syria challenge.“It’s a little bit of an advantage,” Goodwin said. “It’s not the way we wanted to go through to the World Cup. But playing against Syria over the two legs was a good test and they’re a good team.“But we have a good squad and good quality in the team. It’s going to be tough but I think we have the squad to get to the World Cup.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

For New Orleans, humor’s the best medicine

first_imgNEW ORLEANS – This city’s battered residents put their months of heartache, frustration and anger on parade Saturday, in effigies, blue-tarp trailers and themes like “Fridge Over Troubled Water,” and gave themselves the first of many desperately needed Mardi Gras laughs. The Krewe du Vieux, a satirical group that has used its parade to mock corporations and politicians every year for the last two decades, featured carts with effigies of Mayor Ray Nagin and Gov. Kathleen Blanco, among other things. “It’s good we can laugh at ourselves,” said spectator Robert Elmwood, 77. “It means the spirit is still alive. After all the grim things, we’ve prevailed.” Mardi Gras has long been an occasion for the city to laugh at tragedy and aim barbs at authorities, and given all the pain New Orleans has suffered in the past year the irreverence should reach new heights this season. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Armed with sharp tongues and images such as the blue tarps that still protect broken roofs across the city, the clubs that stage Mardi Gras parades are targeting Hurricane Katrina and the politicians they blame for the chaotic response to the catastrophe. One display in the Krewe du Vieux parade Saturday asked France to buy Louisiana back, suggesting the state might get better treatment than it has from the American government. Dressed as a pink flamingo and accompanying a cart fashioned to resemble a FEMA trailer, Sally Durkin of Mississippi said the satire is helping to heal the city. “There’s so much despair around it all,” she said. “Sometimes you have to just take it on the chin and have some humor about it, or we all go crazy.” Still, in the midst of revelry and satire, even the city known as the Big Easy has a serious side. The Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, a 90-year-old historically black group that holds one of the city’s most beloved Mardi Gras parades, lit 10 candles at a service in honor of club members who have died since the storm. They lit an eleventh candle to honor the hundreds of people killed by Katrina. Mardi Gras parades typically run on weekends leading up to and on Mardi Gras, which falls on Feb. 28 this year, almost exactly six months after the storm. The parades are put on by private clubs across the city; Krewe du Vieux is a smaller French Quarter parade that runs in advance of the major parades. “It is hard living here now. We need to have our opportunity to release,” said Keith Twitchell, one of the organizers of Saturday’s Krewe du Vieux parade. “If you don’t laugh, you’re dead. There’s a lot to cry about here.” Mardi Gras expert Arthur Hardy said the satire serves as a coping mechanism. Masked riders in the parades have long used the opportunity to mock the ruling class and government officials, said . The tradition goes back to 1873, when the Mistick Krewe of Comus themed its parade “The Missing Links to Darwin’s Origin of the Species” and portrayed Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant as a tobacco grub. “It’s almost like you laugh to keep from crying. It’s a chance to say ‘This can’t keep us down.’ … We’re going to laugh at it and throw something back at it,” he said. Even groups that are typically less tongue-in-cheek are taking swipes at the storm and politicians this year. The Krewe of Carrollton, which holds its parade on Feb. 19, chose “Blue Roof Blues” – a reference to the tarps protecting damaged and leaky roofs. The Krewe of Mid-City will use blue tarps along the bottom of its floats – in part out of necessity because of flooding at its warehouse. The Mid-City parade, scheduled for Feb. 26, will have floats called “New Orleans Culture” – that’s culture as in mold – and “I drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was gone,” a bitter twist on the line from Don McLean’s “American Pie.” It also will use a float from last year’s parade that bears the image of Willy Wonka. The “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” character has become a favorite reference to the mayor since he angered residents by saying New Orleans would once more become a “chocolate city.” New Orleans was more than 65 percent black before Hurricane Katrina displaced about two-thirds of its population. “As fate would have it, we’re able to recycle it,” Gerard Braud, a former Mid-City king, said of the float. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Vatican visit angers Bay Area officials

SAN FRANCISCO – Some supervisors are angry that a city delegation visited Cardinal William Levada in Rome and presented him with a glass paperweight etched with the official San Francisco seal. The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution last week condemning Levada, former archbishop of San Francisco, for a Catholic church policy barring adoptions by same-sex couples. That didn’t stop an official city delegation from traveling to the Vatican to attend Levada’s installation as cardinal and presenting him with the paperweight. “I think it is a significant breach,” said Supervisor Tom Ammiano, a gay Catholic who sponsored the Levada resolution. He said the delegation headed by Police Commissioner Joe Veronese “must have heard of this little brouhaha. It made international news.” Many city residents were angered when the Catholic Church decided that it would no longer permit its charitable organization to allow children to be adopted by gay and lesbian couples. Mayor Gavin Newsom canceled his trip to the Vatican.last_img read more
