Holloway reveals interest in Odemwingie

first_img Press Association Sport understands Holloway is not optimistic about doing a deal as he feels other clubs may also be in for the player. It is understood, however, that talks have taken place which could see Odemwingie head to Selhurst Park and then sign a permanent deal in the summer. The Nigeria international looks to have no future at West Brom, with Baggies manager Steve Clarke describing his unauthorised drive to Loftus Road as “total lunacy” and chairman Jeremy Peace calling him “wholly unprofessional”. QPR failed with two bids for Odemwingie, who launched a series of Twitter attacks against the club after having a transfer request rejected. It remains to be seen whether Albion would allow him to leave at this juncture, if Palace could afford his £39,000-a-week salary or whether Odemwingie wants to drop out of the top flight. Odemwingie was largely attracted by a salary on offer of nearly £70,000 a week at QPR. Clarke is aware Odemwingie’s departure would reduce his options but is also conscious his actions have not gone down well in some parts of the dressing room. Reports on Thursday morning suggested that Odemwingie, who caused a transfer deadline day stir by driving to QPR uninvited in a bid to push through a move, could be loaned out to Holloway’s npower Championship club until the end of the season. “Someone contacted the chairman. I was asked if I would want him (Odemwingie). I said yes,” Holloway said. “I don’t think he’s a realistic target for us personally.” Ian Holloway would like to sign Peter Odemwingie for Crystal Palace, but feels a move for the unsettled West Brom striker might be out of his club’s reach.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Barca, Madrid Held, Griezmann Lifts Atletico

first_imgReal Madrid remain eight points adrift of Barcelona at the top of La Liga after failing to break down Athletic Bilbao in a 0-0 stalemate as captain Sergio Ramos saw the 24th red card of his career.Earlier, Celta Vigo became the first team this season to take points off Barcelona at the Nou Camp in a thrilling 2-2 draw.Atletico Madrid took advantage of Barca’s stumble as Antoine Griezmann’s winner against his former club two minutes from time earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Real Sociedad to move to within six points of the leaders.Real are now tied for fourth with Sevilla, who beat Deportivo la Coruna 2-0 on the day their coach Eduardo Berizzo was released from hospital just four days after undergoing an operation on a cancerous prostate tumour.Celta have been a bogey side for Barca in recent years, beating the Catalans once in each of the past three seasons. A positive start from the Galicians on Celta boss Juan Carlos Unzue’s return to the Camp Nou, where he spent three years as Luis Enrique’s assistant, was rewarded 20 minutes in when Aspas tapped home on the rebound after a stunning save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen had denied Maxi Gomez.Celta’s lead lasted two minutes, though, as Messi latched onto Paulinho’s pass to fire low under Ruben Blanco for his first goal since late October.Messi then took control of the game as Barca pressed and finally broke Celta’s resistence just after the hour when his pass freed Jordi Alba to tee up Suarez for his first goal at the Camp Nou in nearly three months.An end-to-end encounter swung back Celta’s way in a double blow for Barca. Umtiti pulled up with a hamstring problem that will keep him out for eight weeks as he chased Aspas down the right and the Spanish international then patiently picked out Gomez to fire into an unguarded net.“It was a series of unfortunate incidents in the one move,” lamented Valverde. “Above all for the injury to Samuel than to give away the goal.”However, a bad day for Barca wasn’t compounded by Real cutting the gap at the top as the European champions failed to score for the third time in their last nine La Liga games in a game short of clear-cut chances in Bilbao.And Madrid had to see out the final five minutes with 10 men when Ramos saw red for a second bookable offence when he led with his arm in an aerial duel with Aduriz meaning he will miss the visit of his former side Sevilla to the Santiago Bernabeu next weekend.Unlike their local rivals, Atletico closed in on Barca with their first La Liga win at their new Wanda Metropolitano home since September as Griezmann’s return to form continued.Diego Simeone’s men needed to do it the hard way, though, as they conceded for the first time in five games when Jan Oblak brought down Mikel Oyarzabal inside the area and Willian Jose blasted home from the penalty spot.Scoring goals has been Atletico’s problem this season, but they found a breakthrough from an unlikely source when left-back Filipe Luis cut onto his right foot to find the bottom corner 27 minutes from time.However, Griezmann’s bravery was rewarded with a fourth goal in three games when he slid in to meet Saul’s looping header despite being sandwiched between a Sociedad defender and the far post.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Could the FAI be about to cut ties with Gambling operators?

first_img Irish bookmakers to reopen on 29 June May 28, 2020 Paddy Power to reopen English & Irish betting shops in Royal Ascot week June 10, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Reports are suggesting that The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is going to follow the lead of the English Football Association, in cutting ties with gambling companies. The FAI’s current deal with Ladbrokes culminates this year, however a report in the Times is suggesting that Irish football’s governing body may cut the deal short in the same way the English FA severed ties with the UK operator last June. The report comes after the stalling of an Irish Gambling Act, meaning that there are currently no regulations on gambling promotions in the country. Debate over the evolution of the laws have been in debate since 2013, yet very little progress has been made with new laws. Irish President Michael D. Higgins heightened calls for increased regulations on the industry during a phone in with RTÉ Radio 1’s Sunday Sport, in which he affirmed his stance of wanting a blanket ban on gambling promotions. The Irish President told the station: “There is no one being heavy about it. What you can do is through education obviously, through the school systems. But you can’t do everything through education. For too long in Ireland we often ignore problems that are staring us in the face.”However, Sharon Byrne, chair of the Irish Bookmakers Association, emphasised to the Irish Examiner the Irish gambling sector is looking to ensure social responsibility measures are met.She said: “I believe that gambling for the vast majority of people is an enjoyable, leisure activity but for a small percentage it can become a problem and as a responsible industry it is up to us to ensure that we have adequate services available and that people are aware of those services if gambling is becoming an issue.” Irish bookmakers demand clarity on reopening orders June 17, 2020 Share Submit Related Articleslast_img read more

ONE Championship 92 results: Shinya Aoki regains title; Demetrious Johnson shines in ONE debut

first_img“Being 35 (years old) doing what I love with all the troubles, aren’t you guys jealous?” Aoki said through an interpreter in his post-fight interview. “I will still go on every day.”WHAT. A. FINALE! Japanese legend Shinya Aoki submits Eduard Folayang with a signature triangle choke at 2:34 of Round 1 to reclaim the ONE Lightweight World Title! @a_ok_i #WeAreONE #ANewEra #Tokyo #MartialArts pic.twitter.com/jbLmv9XsQl— ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) March 31, 2019Aoki (43-8, one no-contest) set the tone from the outset, going right at Folayang and throwing a couple of kicks to the body and the head. Not fazed by the shots, Folayang clipped Aoki with a right hand. He proceeded to land a left and a couple of inside leg kicks.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSeeing Folayang was looking to continue his striking attack, Aoki tried for a takedown. Folayang made him pay for the attempt with a short shot, but Aoki stayed firm and secured the takedown. From there, Aoki showed why he’s one of the best grapplers in the world.The takedown led to him getting into the mount position, and he then quickly moved into side control and applied the choke. Aoki was driving the shoulder into Folayang’s neck and squeezing as hard as he could. Folyang was refusing to tap out and let himself pass out. Aoki jumped off the cage and went to the top of the ramp where he dropped his gloves.The win extends Aoki’s winning streak to four after back-to-back losses to Folayang and Ben Askren. Folayang (21-7) had his three-fight winning streak snapped.Demetrious Johnson chokes out Yuya WakamatsuExpectations were high for the former UFC flyweight champion after he got traded to ONE at the end of the October. He had made his mark in the UFC, becoming the inaugural flyweight champion, defending the belt a record-setting 11 consecutive times and cementing himself as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world.Johnson showed why he’s still one of the best fighters around. In a tougher than expected fight, Johnson finally put the highly motivated Wakamatsu away, submitting him with a guillotine choke at 2:40 of the second round in the first round of the flyweight grand prix. Demetrious Johnson makes a STATEMENT in his ONE debut, submitting Yuya Wakamatsu with a tight guillotine choke at 2:40 of Round 2! @MightyMouse #WeAreONE #ANewEra #Tokyo #MartialArts pic.twitter.com/K4yOpTfmQJ— ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) March 31, 2019″He’s good about crossing distance,” Johnson said in his post-fight interview. “I had a hard time trying to cross distance carefully. I got caught, but sometimes you battle through adversity in the cage or life, and you keep pushing through it.”Johnson and Wakamatsu went right at each other with neither guy being able to gain an advantage. Johnson dropped Wakamatsu and immediately went for a takedown, but Wakamatsu stuffed the attempt.With about a minute left in the round, Wakamatsu landed a sharp right hand, which caused Johnson’s right eye to swell up immediately. Not wanting to continue to absorb punishment on the feet, Johnson secured a takedown and quickly looked to lock in a kimura. Wakamatsu scrambled back to his feet by the end of the round.Wakamatsu came out to begin the second round and wobbled Johnson with another left hook, then stunned him with a left hand. Seeing he couldn’t win a standup battle, Johnson quickly went for a takedown. Wakamatsu initially blocked it, but “Mighty Mouse” lived up to his nickname and was relentless until he got Wakamatsu to the mat.After a couple of quick scrambles that had Johnson transitioning from being in the mount position to being in side control to try and execute an armbar, Wakamatsu made it back to his feet, but Johnson made him pay. He locked in the guillotine, threw a couple of short knees to his head and squeezed Wakamatsu’s head as hard as he could.Realizing he wasn’t going to escape, Wakamatsu had no choice but to tap out.Timofey Nastyukhin shocks Eddie AlvarezMany expected the former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion to roll in, take care of business against the unknown Nastyukhin in his ONE debut and march his way toward a third world championship in a different promotion.Timofey Nastyukhin SHOCKS THE 🌏! The Russian warrior knocks out Eddie Alvarez at 4:05 of Round 1 to advance in the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix! #WeAreONE #ANewEra #Tokyo #MartialArts pic.twitter.com/YxUV0TSnFR— ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) March 31, 2019However, the 29-year-old showed there’s a reason why you fight, as he scored the monumental upset by knocking out Alvarez at 4:05 of the first round in the quarterfinals of the lightweight grand prix. Nastyukhin will take on Lowen Tynanes in the semifinals.Standing across the cage from each other, you could tell Nastyukhin was the bigger fighter of the two. Early on, Nastyukhin dropped Alvarez with a straight right hand followed by a left hook. Usually, that wakes Alvarez up — not this time around. ONE Championship 92 centered around the debuts of former UFC champions Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Alvarez. Not many realized Shinya Aoki and Eduard Folayang were going to battle in a rematch in the main event for the lightweight championship. Aoki made the MMA world remember who he is by choking out Folayang by first-round submission (arm-triangle choke) to regain the lightweight belt at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan. The 35-year-old from Philadelphia never really get going. Nastyukhin was able to control the distance and never let the American implement his game plan. He continued to be the aggressor and attacked Alvarez with a series of heavy shots.Nastyukhin (13-4) landed a straight right hand to rock Alvarez. Seeing Alvarez on shaky ground, Nastyukhin hit Alvarez with a three-punch combination to send Alvarez’s back against the cage. With Nastyukhin feeling like he had Alvarez, he connected on a right hand to the ear to send Alvarez to the canvas. One more Nastyukhin right hand sent the referee jumping in to stop the fight and cap off the biggest upset so far in 2019. Alvarez (29-7), who agreed to a deal with the Asian-based promotion in October, now goes back to the drawing board.ONE Championship 92 undercard resultsJing Nan Xiong def.
