Danny Ings only had eyes on Liverpool switch

first_img New Liverpool striker Danny Ings 1 Danny Ings insists he only ever had eyes for Liverpool after his switch from relegated Burnley to Anfield.The 22-year-old moved to the club from the Clarets at the end of his contract, with a fee for the England Under-21 international set to be decided by tribunal.Having scored 11 Premier League goals for Sean Dyche’s struggling side, the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Real Sociedad were all heavily linked with a move for the former Bournemouth youngster.But Liverpool won the race for his signature and Ings revealed he did not want to be anywhere else.“As soon as I knew that Liverpool were interested, it was a no-brainer,” he told LFCTV.“It was the only club on my mind, to be fair. And now that it has happened, it’s fantastic for me and my family.“It’s a special club, everybody knows it. With all the history that’s here…it’s definitely a massive step in my career and I’m over the moon.”Last season, no Liverpool striker reached double-figures in terms of league goals last season, with an injury-hit campaign for Daniel Sturridge.But Ings is looking forward to playing alongside Sturridge, who impressed the previous year as he scored 21 goals in a lethal partnership with Luis Suarez.“He’s an unbelievable striker,” Ings said of Sturridge.“He is one of those players who has come through the ranks, he has not had it easy. Now he’s here and he’s established; he’s a fantastic, talented football player I can learn from.”James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Adam Bogdan, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez have also all joined Brendan Rodgers’ charges this summer as the club look to improve on last season’s sixth-placed finish.last_img read more

Leicester’s title chase NOT over after West Brom draw – Mark Schwarzer

first_imgLeicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer insists the Foxes’ Premier League title chase is NOT over, despite dropping points against West Brom on Tuesday.Claudio Ranieri’s men missed the chance to open up a five point lead at the top as they drew 2-2 with the Baggies in a thrilling game at the King Power Stadium.Title rivals Tottenham  now have the chance to leapfrog them into top spot with a win at West Ham on WednesdayThe Foxes dominated at home but failed to take their chances in front of goal, with the result taking them down from the bookies’ first to third favourites for the top flight crown.However, with ten games left to play and everything still to play for at the top, Schwarzer is confident Leicester will have other chances to further stake their claim for silverware.“Between now and the end of the season there are going to be a lot of sways back and forth on who the favourite is  – it’s still not a foregone conclusion who will win,” the Aussie glovesman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“We’re learning very quickly that when you’re at the top, everybody is there to shoot you down.“Teams are coming to the King Power just to get a result, and they’re very satisfied with just taking a draw from us. You’ve got to learn to deal with that and try to find way of overcoming that.“Last night was very frustrating for us, we dominated the game, had a lot of possession, had a lot of chances and on any other night would have scored more goals.“But credit to West Brom, they came with a game plan and they executed it very well. They were threatening going forward, but they scored with their only two real chances on goal.“But you’ve got to take the good with the bad. We were very lucky to pick up three points against Norwich at the weekend.“The manager was very positive after the game, and rightly so because the boys played very well. He was extremely encouraging and said nobody should hang their heads.“There are a lot of games to go, so we’ve just got to keep plugging away.”last_img read more

Paul Clement rules out role in Sam Allardyce’s England set-up

first_imgBayern Munich assistant manager Paul Clement has confirmed that he will not be joining Sam Allardyce’s England coaching team.Newly-appointed England manager Allardyce had hoped to make the 44-year-old part of his backroom staff, with the Football Association attempting to negotiate a deal with the Bundesliga champions that would have seen him handed a part-time role during international breaks.Clement was sacked as Derby manager last season but has built a strong reputation as an assistant, working under Carlo Ancelotti at Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and now Bayern.However, having only appointed him in June, Bayern were against Clement adding to his workload.In a series of tweets, Clement said: “Following recent media reports I would like to clarify the situation with regards to a possible role with the England national team.“After consultation between FC Bayern, the FA and myself it was decided that it is in the best interests of everyone involved for me to concentrate solely on the job I have in Munich.“I would like to wish success to Sam, The FA and the England Team.”Allardyce, who was confirmed as Roy Hodgson’s successor last month, has already appointed former Bolton colleague Sammy Lee as assistant coach.

THE HOOPS REPORT: ANYONE FANCY A TRIP TO MALAGA? ASKS HAPPY HOOP LENNON

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY: NEIL Lennon basked in the glory of Celtic’s Champions League success and then declared he wouldn’t minding basking in some sunshine….in Malaga!FC Malaga are one of the other 16 teams joining Celtic in the knock-out stages of the tournament after Celtic’s win over Spartak Moscow at Paradise.Lennon said he wouldn’t say no to a Battle of Britain clash with Man United. Then he joked: “I would take Malaga – it would be nice this time of the year over there!”He went on: “It means the world to me as a young manager in my first year in the Champions League to qualify with 10 points, I am very proud of the players, they have performed a miracle.“People laughed at me when I said at the start that my target was to qualify.“No one gave us a prayer going into this group but we have qualified and deservedly so. I think you could see the players progressing last year. “We have some really talented players who I felt could play at European level.“I didn’t want them just to be remembered for beating Barcelona but we have beaten Barcelona and qualified for the last-16 and that is a fantastic feather to have in your cap.”“Seriously, it is going to be really tough, against the top teams in the groups.“You just don’t know what shape teams are going to be in two or three months’ time. But we are there, we are going to enjoy it and we want to progress as far as we can in the competition.“Who knows where it can take you? “The spirit is fantastic, we have some quality players, they have put everything into the group and they have grown as the campaign has gone on and some of them have enhanced their reputations no end.“The draw is on the 20th and it is something that we look forward to, I just want them to concentrate on domestic duties now.”Lennon was seen hiding in the dug-out when Commons stepped up to score the winner.“I didn’t watch it, I turned my back on it,” said the Armagh man. “I’d seen the last couple of penalties and we missed them. I saw Gary Parker (coach) turn his back and so I thought I would wait until the roar goes up.“Kris showed great mental strength to take it, I’m sure he was aware of the significance of the penalty but I thought he had a fantastic game.Spartak caretaker coach Valery Karpin was magnanimous in defeat.He said: “I would like to congratulate Celtic, they deserved it because they have had a very good Champions League campaign.“The referee blew his whistle for a penalty so it was a penalty.“The first half was the probably the best we have played in a long time, so it is disappointing to lose matches when you play well.“In the second half the three midfielders who were supporting the striker were not so influential.“But I cannot blame any of our players, I have to thank them and the fans who came to Glasgow to support us when the game did not mean anything to us.”THE HOOPS REPORT: ANYONE FANCY A TRIP TO MALAGA?

Newhall renovation plan gets preliminary approval

first_img “I think what we are looking for is a nice mix, things that have a hometown feel, stores and restaurants, in combination with unique things you would not see at a mall,” she said. The goal would be to draw customers from outside the area as well as local shoppers. Rogers declined to elaborate on her wish list of tenants or to reveal which developers or retailers have come forward, but she said there has been significant and steady interest even before a plan has been formally approved. The draft plan will be shown Tuesday to a select group of real estate brokers, bank officials and former leaders of large land companies – “people who can bring an enormous amount of resources to the table,” Rogers said. About $7 million has been earmarked by the city for improving the area, mostly for public works, she said. Some money will be spent for outreach and marketing in trade journals, though Rogers did not say how much. The council’s decision Tuesday night will burnish the bank accounts of property owners in the specific plan’s zone. The increase in density permitted by the plan, to be reflected in a zoning change, allows developers to build three stories where only one has been allowed. “If you have a 15,000-square-foot site and you’re able to build 45,000 square feet (under roof), you certainly have a property that is more valuable,” Rogers said. “Being able to go up three stories high without having to provide parking becomes much more valuable.” The particulars of building public parking structures are still being hammered out, but the structures are expected to be wrapped around retail shops, providing close-in parking for customers.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Weste, who has long championed the plan, heralded it as a tool of smart growth, with the nearby Metrolink station serving as a transit hub for commuters and shoppers. “A lot of cities are … re-energizing, bringing a resurgence to ‘old town’ areas that were great places once,” she said Wednesday. “Let’s not let it sit there and languish. That is the direction we are going in.” Though Councilman Frank Ferry reiterated his concern that an unintended consequence could be displacing current residents, he voted in favor of the plan. Planning commissioners had tinkered with the plan before recommending it to the council, which left its own indelible imprint on the document. “The council added the provision that any development that occurs will be sensitive to the surrounding community,” Mayor Cameron Smyth said Wednesday. Plans are in the works to unharness the economic potential of the area, said Carrie Rogers, the city’s economic development manager. After listening to comments from local business operators, she said she will propose, during the city’s midyear budget process, a market research study for the area. Rogers said the study, combined with active talks with commercial real estate brokers, should attract desirable tenants. She said care will be taken in ensuring sensitivity to the surrounding community while serving the city’s overall needs determined in demographic surveys. SANTA CLARITA – After much fanfare and debate, the City Council has agreed to adopt a plan to renovate downtown Newhall and transform it into a village of shops and civic buildings appealing to pedestrians. On Tuesday, the panel voted 4-0 in favor of the draft plan, expected to be formally approved by the council on Nov. 22. Councilwoman Laurene Weste abstained to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest because she lives near the project area. “We’ve reached a point where the council has recognized, in order to redevelop and revitalize downtown Newhall, it needs to provide developers with the tools and benefits so they want to come and bring their projects,” said senior planner Jason Smisko. “In the absence of this plan, in the last five years you really haven’t seen developers come forward with urban village-type projects in downtown Newhall. “Because of the council’s vision and the adoption of this plan, you have developers licking their chops now to propose projects that are consistent with the specific plan,” he said. last_img read more
