Arsene Wenger happy to give Jack Wilshere more time

first_imgArsene Wenger is willing to give Jack Wilshere extra opportunities to prove his fitness as he considers the midfielder to be a “special talent”. The Arsenal man has started just 10 Barclays Premier League matches since March 2014 as a host of injuries have kept the 23-year-old sidelined. Several ankle problems saw questions raised over Wilshere’s long-term fitness and he has yet to feature this campaign after suffering a broken leg in the final days of pre-season preparation. “When you love football and at his age, when you wake up in the morning and you can’t practice that’s terrible. “They need support and I try to give it to him. But he is strong and he is dealing with that. He started at 17 and played every single game and suddenly it stopped. So I believe that can make you stronger.” Wenger addressed the media on Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League visit of Newcastle and dismissed claims Wilshere may yet be ruled out for the entire season. That would mean he would have to sit out England’s European Championship campaign and Wenger believes Roy Hodgson’s side could yet spring a surprise in France. “They can, of course,” he replied when asked if England could win the tournament. “Why not? It’s a similar thing because not to get out of the qualification stage you really need to be suicidal because 16 teams out of 24 qualify and the best third go through so you don’t imagine they don’t qualify. “After that, who are your main opponents? Germany, Spain and France. But I don’t rule England out, but you are not the first favourites. They are in the second tier. If things go well, they have a bunch of young players.” Without the England international, as well as a number of other players due to injury, the Gunners have still managed to seal top spot heading into 2016. Wilshere’s comeback was initially pencilled in for the new year although it is now looking like the end of February is the new target. But Wenger will not give up on the precocious talents of a player who has already picked up 28 England caps. “I am an optimist,” he replied when asked if he can rely on Wilshere given the number of injuries he has “I always think: ‘Okay, it’s true that he hasn’t played many games in recent years’. I hope at some stage that will stop because he is young and I hope I’m right. “He is a special case because he is a special talent and he comes out of the club. And he is an England international and I hope his injuries will stop at some stage.” Wilshere penned his current Arsenal contract three years ago and Wenger certainly is not ready to give up on the Stevenage-born ace. “He has two years left and I want Jack to stay here,” the Frenchman added.

Dodgers beat Seattle Mariners again in their final at-bat; celebration ensues

first_imgBut Turner took off for home plate on contact and was tagged out in a rundown between third base and home plate.Adrian Gonzalez then walked to load the bases, setting the stage for Kendrick, who belted the next pitch to right field on a line. Rollins scored easily from third base. Right fielder Nelson Cruz made a strong throw to the plate, but Crawford slid around catcher Mike Zunino’s tag, setting off a wild celebration as players poured out of the dugout. Alex Guerrero and Andre Ethier also hit home runs before an announced crowd of 43,115 at Dodger Stadium.Left-hander David Huff became the fifth pitcher to start a game for the Dodgers this year, not far from where he grew up in Huntington Beach, but a long way from the Cactus League fields of greater Phoenix where he was so efficient in spring training.Because the Dodgers had optioned some of their better pitching prospects to Triple-A to begin the season — Joe Wieland, Zach Lee and Mike Bolsinger — they could not be recalled until April 16 per MLB rules. So the choice was essentially between Huff and veterans Scott Baker and Freddy Garcia, neither of whom pitched an inning for the Dodgers in camp. Huff gave up four runs in four innings, including back-to-back solo home runs by Robinson Cano and Cruz in the first inning. He exited when his turn at-bat came around with the Dodgers trailing 4-1 in the fourth inning.Manager Don Mattingly chose Guerrero, whose bases-loaded single had lifted the Dodgers to a 10-inning victory Monday, to pinch hit for Huff. Guerrero belted the first pitch he saw from Hisashi Iwakuma over the left-center field fence for a two-run home run. It was Guerrero’s first pinch-hit home run in a major league game, and the first by any Dodger pinch-hitter since Scott Van Slyke last July.Their lead cut to 4-3, the Mariners jumped on reliever Juan Nicasio for a run in the fifth inning after Nicasio walked the first two batters he faced.Ethier got the run back in the sixth inning with a home run to right field that stayed fair by inches. It was his first home run since June 29, 2015. He only got the start because Yasiel Puig was dealing with an injured left hamstring and held out of the lineup as a precaution.The Dodgers had runners on first and second base after back-to-back singles by Crawford and Gonzalez to begin the seventh inning. Right-hander Yoervis Medina replaced left-hander Charlie Furbush on the mound, and he struck out Kendrick and induced an inning-ending double play groundout by Yasmani Grandal.Grandal, starting his fifth game at catcher, went 0 for 3 and is batting .176 to start the season. One walk-off win deserves another.Howie Kendrick’s single to right field in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday drove in two runs, lifting the Dodgers to a 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners. The Dodgers have won both games to begin the series in their final at-bat.PHOTOS: See images of Dodgers celebrationMariners closer Fernando Rodney allowed singles to Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins to begin the ninth inning.

Joe Panik homer stands alone as Giants edge Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw in opener

first_imgBut the Dodgers couldn’t summon the echoes of another era – last summer – and put together a winning rally. Instead, Joe Panik’s solo home run stood alone as the San Francisco Giants handed the Dodgers a 1-0 defeat.It was the Dodgers’ first Opening Day defeat since 2010 and Kershaw’s first in those eight season-opening assignments.“We didn’t get the offensive performance we wanted,” said first baseman Cody Bellinger, whose 0 for 4 was part of a collective 0 for 17 from the first five spots in the Dodgers’ batting order. “Kershaw was great again. He gave up one run. We should win when he only gives up one.”Kershaw certainly did what he could. Although he allowed eight hits – the most of any of his Opening Day starts – he stranded five baserunners in the first four innings, including leaving a runner at third in three of them. He even had two of the Dodgers’ three hits off Giants starter Ty Blach.“I was fortunate to get out of some jams there,” Kershaw said. “Panik put one good swing on me and unfortunately it cost us the game.” “That would have been epic,” he said.But the Dodgers went down in order after that, striking out five times in the final three innings.“It just didn’t happen,” Kemp said.

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Something in the air at Dodger Stadium on Thursday afternoon made your eyes water – and it had nothing to do with the plumbing problem that sent sewage spilling onto the field Tuesday night. The Dodgers had apparently jiggled the handle and cleared away all signs of that embarrassing flow pas.No, it was the nostalgia. The air was thick with it.As the 30th anniversary season started, the Dodgers brought out the heroes of 1988 – Tommy Lasorda, Orel Hershiser and Kirk Gibson – and kicked off Opening Day with the kind of warm embrace of history which this franchise does so well.Clayton Kershaw made his own (latest) mark on that history, taking the ball on Opening Day for a franchise-record eighth consecutive season. Baseball’s toughest entrance exam, Kershaw allowed just one run in six innings while striking out seven.center_img Dodgers choose Joc Pederson over Andrew Toles – for now That swing came unexpectedly with two outs and no one on in the fifth inning. Kershaw dropped down to a three-quarters delivery to mess with Panik. It didn’t work. Panik was on the 2-and-2 fastball and lofted a high fly ball down the right-field line.The drive was met with an odd silence many in the park assuming it had gone foul. But a look of disgusted disbelief on Kershaw’s face confirmed that Panik had tucked it just inside the foul pole for a solo home run.The Giants had just two hits after Panik’s homer. But only one of the Dodgers’ eventual six hits came from any of the first six hitters in the lineup (a ninth-inning single by Matt Kemp).“He’s thrown the ball well against us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Blach. “I should have batted Clayton third.”The Dodgers’ best chance to end their season-long scoreless streak came after Blach left the game.In the bottom of the seventh, Yasmani Grandal’s second single and a two-out pinch-hit single by Chase Utley put runners at the corners. Getting a massive jump against Giants reliever Cory Gearrin, Utley stole second, putting the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position for Chris Taylor – who took a full-count slider right down “Copperhead Road” for strike three and flipped his bat away in an act of self-loathing.“It was right down the middle. I was angry with myself,” Taylor said of his reaction. “I was thinking too much, I think. Taking a two-strike slider down the middle is inexcusable.”There was still time for the kind of heroics that characterized the 2017 season. Playing his first game as a Dodger since 2014, Kemp led off the ninth with a single. Visions of a storybook ending were dancing in his head.Related Articleslast_img read more

Barça lowers € 15M its salary cap and another 11 raise it

first_imgMore than half of LaLiga teams have readjusted their salary limit after a convulsive month of January with ups and downs. This concept includes the money that can be spent on salaries for players, coach, second coach and physical trainer (inscribable template), as well as in the subsidiary, the quarry and other sections (non-sign-in template). This includes as many fixed wages as variables, collective premiums, social security, amortization and acquisition expenses, which takes into account the commissions given to the representatives. Its calculation is made from the difference between income (television, commercial, …) and structural expenses (those mentioned above). From there, It is each club that has its own salary limit (which you can download if you wish to invest money in other games such as works in a stadium), must comply with the regulations of the Economic Control of LaLiga and, subsequently, be approved by the Validation Body. In case of having a salary limit that does not guarantee the stability of the club, this body would reduce it to an amount that would guarantee it.Total, Eleven teams have adjusted their salary limit upward. The most, the Espanyol, One of the great agitators of the transfer market this winter. It has gone from 68.73 million to 86.34. Almost 18 million euros. They have also increased their salary ceiling on Valencia (+6.4), Villarreal (+4.8), Betis (+2.08), Real Sociedad (+4.43), Celtic (+6.2), Getafe (+7.51), Osasuna (+0.15), Granada (+2.43), Valladolid (+2.83) and Mallorca (+3.56).

Getafe63,79956,284+7,515 Barcelona656,429671,429-fifteen LaLiga has made official salary limit updates that each First Division team has after the closing of the transfer market. Barcelona, ​​with 656.43 million, is the one with the highest ceiling in this section, but has reduced it by € 15M compared to what had been marked in September (671.43). The Catalans lower their cap on the cost of the sports squad when they still have to sign a ‘nine’ as a replacement for the long-lasting injury of Dembélé.The reasons why Barcelona has been able to see how its salary limit was reduced it may be due to reasons of operations that have increased their structural expenditure and forced to reduce their expenditure on staff or because they have entered less than budgeted because it is not going to be fulfilled (as it may be not to have won the Super Cup, to have fallen in the Cup or because the profit volume by players is not reached). Of course, that the salary cap has been reduced may not influence the purchase of a forward, since they have 656, 43 million margin and does not mean that they have everything busy. If they needed more they could increase it, since one of the options to do so is to have a long-term injury. Athletic103,183103,1830 Athletic348,500348,5000 Osasuna38,84638,693+153 Even so, Barcelona remains the team with the greatest margin to invest in its workforce. Real Madrid follows, which unlike its great competitor, maintains the same ceiling in salaries as the one marked in September (641.04). Third, but almost with half that blaugrana and whites, is the Athletic (348.00). The rojiblancos, like Madrid, Sevilla (185.17), Athletic (103.18), Levante (54.6), Leganés (52.08) and EIbar (47.12) are the only ones that have not changed this concept with respect to the stipulated after the summer window of signings.
