PSG man will NOT be moving to Liverpool this month

first_img Salvatore Sirigu 1 Liverpool will miss out on the chance to sign Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu with Torino taking him on loan this week.Adam Bogdan’s errors against Watford and Exeter recently cast doubts over whether he can deputise for Simon Mignolet.And Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp could have turned to Italian keeper, Sirigu, who has lost his place in the starting XI at the Ligue 1 side this season.The 29-year-old wants to play regular first-team football in the build-up to Euro 2016 and Torino can offer him that.What the Italian club cannot offer is to pay all of his wages so the Qatari-backed French side has agreed to pay the lion’s share of his pay packet to allow him to leave.Klopp has recalled young ‘keeper Danny Ward from his loan spell at Aberdeen and it looks like he will now compete with Bogdan to be Mignolet’s main support.last_img read more

Berahino ‘could be Championship player next season if he moves to Newcastle’, claims Murphy

first_img 1 Despite Newcastle’s bid, however, Berahino’s favoured move to Tottenham could still be on the cards.The Baggies sealed the arrival of highly-rated Spurs starlet Alex Pritchard on loan for the rest of the season on deadline day, and fans hope a deal for Berahino to move the other way could follow. Danny Murphy has warned wantaway West Brom starlet Saido Berahino against making a move to Newcastle, amid rumours of a £21million bid from the Magpies.The 22-year-old has been consistently linked with a move away from the Hawthorns, with Tottenham and Stoke among a number of clubs linked.After seeing a prospective move to White Hart Lane thwarted after a drawn out summer saga, Berahino vowed never to play for Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace again and now it seems his exit door has finally appeared.A January move had looked increasingly unlikely with West Brom not to receiving a formal bid for the young forward, but it now seems big-spending Newcastle could land him after making the first concrete offer for the star.But, former midfielder Murphy believes it would be the wrong move if ex-England Under-21 international Berahino sees a future for himself in the England senior team.“If you’re his agent or his Dad, there is no way you could advise him to go to Newcastle at the moment,” the former England and Liverpool star told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“That would be ludicrous because he could be a Championship player in six months’ time, and he certainly wouldn’t be in contention for the England squad then.”Berahino took to Twitter to vent his frustration about his collapsed Spurs move in the summer, but swiftly deleted his commentlast_img read more

Culver City catches Redondo flagging

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityRedondo was flagged 11 times for 140 yards in Friday night’s 38-28 nonleague loss at Culver City. At one point, the Sea Hawks faced third-and-50 after three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on back-to-back fourth-quarter plays, effectively killing the team’s last shot at reeling in Culver City. It was those penalties that nullified a three-touchdown, 257-yard rushing performance by Gray, who carried the ball 18 times. “The calls didn’t go our way and that was the biggest factor in the game,” Gray said. “They not only took away from what we were trying to do on offense, but they really brought the spirit of the team down.” Penalties not only stalled all but one of Redondo’s four second-half possessions, but also gave Culver City quarterback Darius Banks a fresh set of downs on four occasions. Banks made the most of those opportunities as Culver City outscored Redondo, 28-7, in the second half. NONLEAGUE: Centaurs quarterback Banks capitalizes when Sea Hawks falter. By David Saunders STAFF WRITER As precious fourth-quarter seconds ticked off the clock, Redondo running back Hayward Gray could do nothing more than shake his head at the result of a game that wasn’t lost on the line of scrimmage, but rather on the belt loop of the officiating crew. “He is a great player and we gave him too many chances,” Redondo coach Gene Simon said. Banks, who led the state in passing last season, beat Redondo (2-3) more with his legs than his arm. He passed for two touchdowns to Antwon Moutra, but also ran for three scores and a handful of critical first-down conversions down the stretch. One such play came early in the fourth quarter when he ran from sideline to sideline, scrambling for 16 yards on fourth-and-8. The play lasted 18 seconds. Culver City (5-0) scored two plays later to take its first lead of the game, 24-21. “It’s quite bittersweet when you play against him. It’s sweet for the first five seconds when you think you’ve stopped him, but that feeling turns into rage for the last eight seconds when he gets away and runs down the field,” Simon said. “Every time, we called the perfect defense to stop him, but then he improvises.” Banks also was the beneficiary of a number of pass interference calls. Redondo was called for pass interference five times for 66 yards. Redondo’s Nick Jones was called for pass interference on three different plays, but helped make up for some of it with a 17-yard touchdown catch on a pass from Erik Wilson with 2:40 left in the game. But the score was too little, too late. Redondo’s best scoring chance before Jones’ catch came with the team clinging to a four-point lead in the third quarter. On fourth-and-3 at his team’s 45-yard line, Nick Garcia ran an inside handoff on a fake punt for 7 yards and a first down. But the drive ended four plays later when Gray was stopped a foot shy of a first down on fourth-and-1. “If we got that first down there and went on to score, we would have stayed in the ballgame a little longer,” Simon said. david.saunders@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

State economy adds 9,300 jobs

first_imgCalifornia’s economy added a modest 9,300 payroll jobs last month, with the information sector generating the biggest gains and the hard-hit construction industry posting the most losses, the state said Friday. The overall increase followed a revised gain of 21,900 jobs in August, the state Employment Development Department said. The gains last month amount to less than 9 percent of the national increase of 110,000 payroll jobs during the same period. In all, more than 15.2 million people in California held payroll jobs in September, the state agency said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The information sector, which encompasses jobs in the computer data field, added 7,900 jobs. The construction sector shed 5,000 positions. Just over 1 million people were looking for work, an increase of 33,000 from August and a jump of 162,000 from the year-ago period, the state agency said. The state’s unemployment rate stood at 5.6 percent in September, up from 5.5 percent in the previous month and 4.8 percent in September 2006. In the 12 months ended in September, California payrolls grew by 162,000 jobs, a 1.1 percent increase. The government sector posted the biggest gain over that period, adding 53,400 jobs. The construction sector, reeling from the downturn in home sales, posted the steepest decline, losing 28,600 jobs, the state said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Collision Course

first_imgCOLLEGE FOOTBALL: Trojans remain wary of Irish despite their dismal record. By Scott Wolf STAFF WRITER SOUTH BEND, Ind. – This might be known as college football’s “greatest intersectional rivalry,” but today it better resembles two teams stuck in an intersection. But hey, there has to be some excitement when the Irish are imploding. It’s so bad that freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen will not even play because of a sore hip, alleviating some tension because Clausen chose the Irish over USC. Jackson would not even allow that Notre Dame Stadium, with all its tradition and campus landmarks, was the marquee trip of the season. “It’s a fun place to play but the other settings are more fun,” Jackson said. “I like Oregon and Arizona State more.” USC coach Pete Carroll pretty much ignored the classic 2005 game, where Matt Leinart scored the winning touchdown on the famous Bush Push (assistance from tailback Reggie Bush). “You know, we haven’t built our program on that win,” Carroll said. “That was a great win for us and it was dramatic and Reggie’s plays and Matt’s plays and Dwayne’s (Jarrett’s) plays and all the things that they did, they had a great game that day. “I’m glad that it happened and all, but we don’t talk about it. That was quite a while ago now.” Especially the way the Trojans are playing right now. Today is almost a no-win situation. If USC wins, it merely does what is expected. A narrow victory fosters doubts about this team for the fourth week. And a loss pretty much ends the season, at least by USC standards. “I pretty much keep to the people I know because everyone has something to say right now,” USC safety Taylor Mays said. “You always hear questions. But we’ve never doubted ourselves. I think we’ve learned and we’re ready to move forward.” Maybe this game is a little more worrisome because backup quarterback Mark Sanchez makes his second straight start with John David Booty available in relief. History also offers a couple of warnings to USC. In 1963, Notre Dame’s only two victories were against USC and UCLA as the Irish went 2-7. The Irish beat the seventh-ranked, defending national champion Trojans, 17-14, and came back to beat the Bruins a week later, 27-12. Hmmm, that sounds familiar. In 1959, USC played a 4-5 Irish team. The Irish upset the No. 7 Trojans, 16-6. Perhaps the mother of all upsets occurred in 1960, John McKay’s first year. If Notre Dame loses today, it will be 1-7 for the first time since 1960 and only the second time in history. Notre Dame entered the Coliseum with eight straight losses after a season-opening victory. The Irish left with a 17-0 victory over USC. Perhaps to rekindle some of that nostalgia, Notre Dame wears green jerseys today as it did in 1977. That’s a sore spot for USC fans, who remember the Irish broke out those green jerseys 20 minutes before kickoff and routed USC, 49-19. Overall, Notre Dame is 3-1 against USC when breaking out special green jerseys. The Irish lost to USC two years in green jerseys. “These uniforms are ugly, but what the players like about them is that they’re throwbacks,” Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis said. “Because they’re throwbacks they’re unique. Remember what those jerseys looked like? Remember those ugly pants? That’s what they have to wear this week. “What I didn’t want to do is I didn’t want to make a big deal about using it more as a motivational thing. This is in respect to honor that ’77 team.” scott.wolf@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.No. 13 USC’s three-week slump suddenly looks insignificant compared to the wreck previously known as Notre Dame that awaits the Trojans at Notre Dame Stadium. Although records often obscure the atmosphere and drama of this rivalry, Notre Dame is 1-6 and needs a victory today to give its season relevance. The Trojans (5-1) view today’s game as a chance to get it right before the season hits the really tough part, excluding the powerhouse known as Stanford, of course. Every trip to Notre Dame includes drama, such as two years ago when the grass was extremely high and USC’s Desmond Reed tore knee ligaments when his cleats got stuck in the grass. This year will be known for a turbulent plane ride that several witnesses said was overblown. The only injury occurred when defensive end Lawrence Jackson saw trainers because a Popsicle stick cut the inside of his mouth. Memo to Jackson: Next time you’re in a bumpy plane, remove the ice cream stick from your mouth. last_img read more

North Carolina beach house fire kills 7 students

first_imgDennis Pruitt, dean of students, said the fire appears to have affected two Greek organizations – the Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. Earlier in the day, a campus minister at the sorority house declined to comment, as did an adult who answered the door at the fraternity house. Messages left with the national headquarters of the organizations were not immediately returned. The fire struck sometime before 7 a.m. and burned completely through the first and second floors, leaving only part of the frame standing. The waterfront home – named “Changing Channels” – was built on stilts, forcing firefighters to climb a ladder onto the house’s deck to reach the first living floor. The house was a total loss. “We ran down the street to get away,” said Nick Cain, a student at the University of North Carolina who was staying at a house about 100 feet away. “The ash and the smoke were coming down on us. We were just trying to get away.” Cain was one of the dozens of college students who filled at least four houses within a block of the burned home. Neighbor Jeff Newsome said the students were going back and forth between the houses all weekend long. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By The Associated Press OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. – An intense fire ravaged a beach house packed with more than a dozen college students early Sunday, killing seven and leaving little of the structure but its charred frame and the stilts on which it stood. Six survivors were hospitalized and released, including one who jumped from the burning home and into a waterway, Mayor Debbie Smith said. The cause was being investigated. “There were three kids sitting on the ground screaming,” said newspaper deliverer Tim Burns, who called 911 after seeing a column of smoke rising from the house. “There was one guy hanging out the window, and he jumped in the canal. I know he got out because he was yelling for a girl to follow him.” Burns said he didn’t know whether that girl was able to escape. Officials at the University of South Carolina said six of the students who died were from the school in Columbia; the seventh attended Clemson University. The six who survived were also from the University of South Carolina. The private home was being used by the owner’s daughter and a group of her friends, Smith said. “These are young people in the prime of their life,” University of South Carolina President Andrew Sorensen said at a news conference. “They had so much to look forward to, and it’s just profoundly tragic.” Students will have access to counselors, residence hall advisers and clergy members, Sorensen said. Classes will be held today. last_img read more

GOLD RUSH! COMPANY TAKES OUT FIVE MINING LICENSES FOR DONEGAL HILLS

first_imgThe darker areas shows where there could be gold in the hills of Donegal.A major Irish company is convinced it could find gold in the hills of Donegal.Samples suggest that there could be a considerable amount of the valuable metal in our hills.Connemara Mining has now announced that it has acquired five new prospecting licences covering 187 sq km on the Innisowen peninsula in Donegal. The company’s geologists believe that the area is a chance of making a high grade gold find in the region – and that there is also the potential for other base metal deposits to be discovered.Tellus boarder survey – darker shades indicate areas where gold is more likely to be foundThe release of the the most recent Tellus geochemical field survey data confirmed the presence of elevated gold in the area – rock samples containing up to 104g/t gold were identified in 2011 by a previous licence holder.After studying the available data 16 target areas have been identified by Connemara. The company’s chairman, John Teeling says that the company is taking an “aggressive stance” in targeting Ireland’s next gold discovery.He adds, “It is worth noting that the new licence block is located within the Scottish-Irish Gold Belt along trend from the discovery by Dalradian Gold where they have recently announced an inferred gold resource of 3.5 million ounces.” GOLD RUSH!
