QPR v Brighton player ratings

first_imgAs always, the young midfielder showed bags of desire and was never afraid to have a shot at goal. His hard work set up a golden chance for substitute Idrissa Sylla late on. Massimo Luongo: 8 Built on his impressive display at Villa Park, pulling his side’s creative strings to set up a high proportion of their attacking moves as well as tracking back when necessary. Ravel Morrison: 5 Now and then Morrison looked good on the ball, but more frequently the game seemed to pass him by and it was no surprise when he was withdrawn after 65 minutes. Conor Washington: 6 At times Washington looked like a striker trying too hard to regain his goal touch but he was always alert, sniffing out loose balls and doing his utmost to bring team-mates into play. Missed a decent chance when he blasted over though. Matt Smith: 7 Embed from Getty Images The big centre-forward won his fair share of headers throughout, forcing one close-range save from David Stockdale before getting up to head Luke Freeman’s corner home and halve the deficit. Yeni Ngbakoto: 6 There were few opportunities for the Frenchman to shine after coming on to replace Robinson midway through the second half, although he did drag a half-chance wide in injury time. Luke Freeman 8 The effervescent midfielder gave Rangers fresh impetus as soon as he replaced Morrison, supplying a chance for Smith almost immediately and then setting up his goal 17 minutes from time. Another substitute, Sylla, missed a glorious late chance to equalise. QPR were undone by two second-half goals in the space of six minutes at Loftus Road. Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in the 2-1 defeat against Brighton. Alex Smithies: 6 Rarely under pressure, the Rangers goalkeeper was left completely exposed for Glenn Murray’s opener – but he was slow to get across as Sebastien Pocognoli’s free-kick made it 2-0. James Perch: 6 Starting as a wing-back, Perch got forward well and was also unlucky not to score when his volley was charged down just before half-time.AdChoices广告 Nedum Onuoha: 5 While the Rangers skipper produced timely challenges to foil Tomer Hemed and Glenn Murray, it was his error that allowed Murray to race clear and open the scoring early in the second half.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Grant Hall: 7 Apart from a late mistake that almost let Murray in again as Rangers chased a late equaliser, Hall was largely solid in his defensive role and brought the ball out well. Joel Lynch: 7 Worked hard to keep Brighton at bay in the first half and put in a vital tackle to deny the dangerous Anthony Knockaert. Jack Robinson: 5 Making his first start for four months – and it showed in an uneasy performance as he was repeatedly caught out of position. Ryan Manning: 7 Embed from Getty Images See also:QPR beaten as Brighton go topHolloway bemoans shoddy defending after QPR defeatHolloway hoped QPR might expose Brighton weakness  Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Exclusive: People Are Becoming Rich Using This Profit System x No Senior in Local Area Should Go Without This £49 Smartwatch x Easy Way to Generate Extra Income x Last Nights Episode Left Viewers Speechless! x Chilling Photos Taken Moments Before It All Goes Wrong x This 70s Star Was Every Guy’s Dream Girl.

One day, two horse race meets, zero solution so far

first_imgMarch 24, 2019. That is the day the Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing Committee (JJTRC) and the Kennard Memorial Turf Club (KMTC) will host their respective race meets. JJTRC will stage the second leg of its Triple Crown series at the Rising Sun Turf Club, while the traditional KMTC Phagwah meet will be staged at the Bush Lot venue,  Corentyne.The meets will inevitably clash and turfites, jockeys, sponsors and stable owners will have to choose which event they will support.Both the JJTRC boss, Nasrudeen Mohamed Jr. and KMTC head, Cecil Kennard agreed that it’s not and both made arguments to Stabroek Sport about sticking to their dates.Cecil Kennard “The horses, the jockeys and the crowd would be split. It’s not a good thing for horse racing,” said Kennard yesterday. Mohamed Jr. stated:“Having two meets on one date isn’t good for horse racing as there’s only a few thoroughbred horses in Guyana and Kennard has no races on his programme for horses like mine.”Mohamed was adamant that he would not be rescheduling. “I have spent hundreds of thousands already in promoting. I also printed calendars for my year event that was posted on the internet and distributed in the USA etc.”Mohamed stated that his dates were selected ahead of Kennard’s announcement. “The JJTRC selected our race dates for 2019 since November 2018 and published to all the Racing Secretaries for all the tracks in Guyana.  Nothing was mentioned when I published my dates, so we confirmed our dates and went ahead and printed 10,000 calendars and started to distribute. Many of these calendars were distributed on Mr. Kennard’s Boxing Day horse race meet on December 26, 2018, that was the day he released his date.”Kennard did admit to Stabroek Sport yesterday that he did announce his dates on Boxing Day but reminded that the Phagwah meet has been the club’s tradition for 40 years and he is “very disturbed” and feels bullied.“We all know that clubs have traditional dates and I feel it is unfair for another club to clash with us. We have been running this meet for 40 years and this is the first time that the Rising Sun is hosting a meet in March.” Said Mohamed “Our committee was well aware that Mr. Kennard usually has a Phagwah horse racing meet. Sometimes before Phagwah or sometimes after. As an organized committee, we couldn’t wait for an unorganized club to release their dates.”“We are sticking to our traditional date, I think it’s best for Jumbo to move his date forward,” Kennard insisted. Both men agreed that they are open to siting down and ironing out a solution.Said Kennard “We can sit down as big men and come to a compromise, we have no problem with that. I am open to having a meeting to iron out the issues of a clashing of the dates. We don’t want the public to feel that the clubs are fighting. We don’t want that at all.” Kennard’s sentiment was echoed by Mohamed Jr.(Emmerson Campbell)last_img read more

Outcasts Mustafi and Elneny Not Needed At Arsenal – Unai Emery

first_imgShkodran Mustafi and Mohamed Elneny have been told by manager Unai Emery they are unwanted and must find “another challenge” before the end of the European transfer window, or face the prospect of bit‑part roles if they remain at Arsenal beyond 2 September.Emery’s ultimatum means both players have just a week and a half to find new clubs and, despite interest in Mustafi from Monaco and in Elneny from Turkish Super Lig sides, no deal has been struck. Emery said a fortnight ago he had spoken to Mustafi about the defender’s future and reiterated in clearer terms that it was in his best interest to depart.“They are very big players but for one circumstance or another they are going to have fewer chances to show their capacity or to be happy with us and the minutes they play in matches,” Emery said. “But they know the situation and really I am wishing the best for them. I think now the best for them is to be protagonists in another team and to get another challenge for themselves.”Mustafi started 31 of Arsenal’s Premier League games last season but was widely criticised for his role in several weak defensive showings, particularly towards a calamitous end to the campaign. He was booed by supporters during pre-season and a way back has never looked likely. Elneny was involved 17 times across all competitions and has scant prospect of serious involvement in the first team if he does not move on.“Last year with Mustafi and Mo, when they didn’t play they weren’t happy and I spoke with them a lot of times last year and this pre-season,” Emery said. “I think it is positive for them to leave and sign for another team where they can be protagonists and be happy and continue their careers.”Relatedlast_img read more

Nuno confident Premier League will grant Wolves delayed start

first_imgThe 46-year-old Portuguese followed Chelsea manager Frank Lampard — whose side are in Champions League action at the weekend — in calling for a delayed start to their season as the players are facing a shorter break than those not involved in European competition.Nuno’s side host Greek outfit Olympiakos on Thursday in their Europa League last 16 second-leg clash, with Wolves holding the advantage having scored an away goal in the 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture.That was back in March before the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Wolves’ European campaign started over a year ago.The exact details for the Premier League schedule for next season will not be decided until later in August.It has already been decided in principle that all clubs should be given a minimum amount of time off, including those still in Europe.“The Premier League should acknowledge teams involved in Europe that players require more time to recover,” Nuno said Wednesday.“We are playing in August. I am sure they will adjust the schedule.”Nuno, whose side missed out on the Europa League for next season after Tottenham Hotspur leapfrogged them into sixth on the last day of the campaign, is happy to have advanced as far as they have done as it has given young players valuable experience.“Being involved in European competition and playing well in the Premier League brought us a lot of knowledge,” said Nuno.“The balance of the squad with a lot of international players has been good. The challenge can make us better.“It was inspiring experience for the young players to come with us for the away Euro games. It is part of our process.”Nuno says the away goal is welcome but that will not affect the way they play the second leg.“We have to approach this as a new game,” he said.“What happened in the first game doesn’t matter. We need a lot of commitment and belief. We have to commit ourselves to every challenge.“We have been good on that. Maybe it is lucky or unlucky that we have all the players available.“We don’t need to win. We want to compete and achieve our goals.”last_img read more
