Struggling Fulham stunned by Saints

first_imgThe renewed optimism brought by Fulham’s late flurry of transfer activity quickly evaporated as Southampton became the eighth side to take three points at Craven Cottage this season. Staring down the barrel of relegation, the Whites took drastic action in a bid to retain their Premier League status by undergoing a 48-hour rebuilding project. Six players arrived and four players departed Craven Cottage in that period, although there was no immediate reaction as Rene Meulensteen’s side crashed to a 3-0 defeat at home to Southampton. Press Association Only two of the new arrivals, Lewis Holtby and William Kvist, were registered in time to feature against Saints, who spent much of the first half on the backfoot and had goalkeeper Artur Boruc to thank for keeping the score level. Fulham were made to pay for those missed opportunities in the second period as Southampton ruthlessly exposed their soft underbelly, with Adam Lallana opening the scoring after 64 minutes with a superb strike across the face of goal. Rickie Lambert netted his 100th league goal for Saints six minutes later, before the visitors’ other England international, Jay Rodriguez, curled home exquisitely in front of the watching national team manager Roy Hodgson. Few would have expected such a rout after a confident first-half display from Fulham. Their first chance of note came after eight minutes when Dan Burn met a Holtby corner with a towering header, which flew just over. Scott Parker and Steve Sidwell fluffed efforts from distance as Meulensteen’s side looked for the breakthrough, while Parker also saw a penalty shout for handball against Maya Yoshida waved away. Other than a deflected cross that Maarten Stekelenburg fumbled, Southampton were creating little and would have gone behind in the 24th minute was it not for an expert one-handed save from Boruc. Brede Hangeland met another fine Holtby corner with a header, which was somehow clawed away by the back-tracking Poland goalkeeper. Southampton were not looking their free-flowing usual selves, with the defence looking unsteady and Victor Wanyama just ahead of them looking rusty on his return from almost two months on the sidelines. The powerful Kenyan was misplacing many passes and was booked just 26 minutes into his return for clattering Parker, joining team-mate Rodriguez in referee Mike Jones’ notebook. Morgan Schneiderlin saw a header pushed around the post by Stekelenburg on a rare voyage forward by the visitors, who were again relying on their goalkeeper to keep the scores level. Darren Bent was thwarted twice in a matter of minutes by Boruc, who first got down brilliantly to deny the on-loan striker rifling home after neat interplay. The former England international was then put through after Wanyama was dispossessed and left in a heap, although the Southampton goalkeeper was again a match for him. Schneiderlin became the third Southampton player booked as the break approached, with Rodriguez heading wide before the half-time whistle went. Unsurprisingly, Wanyama was replaced by Jack Cork for a second half which began with the ball being worked out to the right, where Rodriguez fizzed an effort wide. Schneiderlin saw an audacious overhead kick fly over, before Stekelenburg denied a Lallana strike from distance. While Bent saw a handball appeal turned down at the other end, it was Southampton in control. Lambert was left frustrated after he could not make the most of a hashed clearance, only to then turn provider for the opening goal. Collecting the ball just inside the Fulham half, the England forward played a wonderfully-weighted ball for Lallana to impressively fire low past Stekelenburg. The 64th minute goal extended Fulham’s wait for a clean sheet to a ninth match – the longest run in the top division – and they almost conceded again soon after. Only a late block saw a Steven Davis strike wide, before Lallana started a great counter-attack and fed the ball to the overlapping Shaw, whose low cross was prodded wide by Rodriguez. Southampton did not have to wait long for another goal, though. Nathaniel Clyne, on as a 58th-minute substitute for the injured Chambers, sent in a fine low ball from the right, which, thanks to an intelligent stepover by Rodriguez, fell perfectly for Lambert to slot home. Rodriguez’s selflessness was rewarded in the 75th minute with a goal of his own. Lambert’s long ball to the forward was controlled by his fellow England international, who cut inside away from Hangeland and curled home brilliantly into the top right-hand corner. Substitute Pajtim Kasami curled wide as Fulham looked to reduce the deficit in the closing stages, but they failed to threaten Boruc as Southampton won a league game at Fulham for the first time since October 1947. last_img read more

New album features legends of reggae

first_imgCapo Benaiah (right) alongside other members of The Mighty Diamonds. Capo Benaiah, who has been synonymous with the South Florida reggae scene for over 20 years, plans to release a new album early next year containing a collection of classic reggae songs.“I have been working on this project now for about six years on and off from out of pocket, there is no sponsor or record company with no endorsement or grants,” said Benaiah. “So far, nine songs are recorded and I’m planning to record five more tracks to complete it.”The upcoming album, Benaiah Sings The Legends of Reggae, will be the singer/guitarist’s fifth. One of the songs, Dennis Brown’s Things in Life, was released in 2018 and topped the South Florida Reggae Chart.Some of the other songs Benaiah put his stamp on are Delroy Wilson’s How Can I Love Someone, John Holt’s version of the Shirley Bassey standard, Never Never Never, and Love Up Love Up, originally done by Sugar Minott.The songs are personal favorites, some of which he tried new things with.“I did do something different on the track Never Never Never which was a big hit for John Holt in England. I added some harmonies to the track,” he said.Benaiah, whose real name is Joseph Williamson, plays guitar on some of the songs. He called on several experienced musicians to work on the project including drummers Sly Dunbar and Wilburn “Squiddly” Cole, bass guitarist Chris Meredith, keyboardist Robbie Lyn, and saxophonist Dean Fraser. Since 1985, Kingston-born Capo Benaiah has led the band Benaiah which has backed major reggae acts performing in South Florida. Throughout the 1970s, he played in different bands on the New York reggae scene including The Debonairs which backed Bob Marley at the Concourse Plaza in 1972.In 2015, Benaiah was recruited to join The Mighty Diamonds. He replaced co-founder Bunny Diamonds who suffered a massive stroke.last_img read more

EPL wrap: City falter, Arsenal go third & United win

first_imgSpectacular long-range strikes by midfielders Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho earned Liverpool a 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Sunday that seriously compromised the Premier League champions’ title defence.After Henderson’s fine 11th-minute opener had been cancelled out by Edin Dzeko at Anfield, Coutinho curled home in sumptuous fashion from 25 yards to enhance Liverpool’s hopes of Champions League qualification.City now lie five points behind leaders Chelsea, who have a game in hand due to their involvement in the League Cup final, and manager Manuel Pellegrini admitted that the odds were against his side retaining their title.”It was a close game, but Liverpool won because they scored two beautiful goals,” he said.”It is three points less with one game less. Of course it is difficult to reach the top of the table if you lose three points.”But we must keep going and try to return to our normal performance and see where it takes us.” Both teams had gone into the game on the back of European disappointments, but whereas City’s display suggested their 2-1 Champions League loss to Barcelona had not been fully digested, Liverpool showed no ill-effects from their penalty shootout defeat at Besiktas in the Europa League.Liverpool only returned from Istanbul in the early hours of Friday morning and manager Brendan Rodgers said their performance against City was testament to the dedication of his players.”I have to take my hat off to the players,” said the Northern Irishman, whose side are on an 11-game unbeaten streak in the league.”To get back at half four in the early hours of Friday morning – by the time they got to bed it was six, and they had to sleep all of Friday.”We then did some light work yesterday (Saturday), but to come out and play like they did, they were relentless.” ARSENAL CLAIM THIRDRodgers added: “They restricted a top team to just one shot on target and deserve all the praise they will get.”Rodgers made four changes to the team that had come unstuck in Istanbul, with Daniel Sturridge among those who dropped to the bench, and saw his side take the lead in the 11th minute.Henderson gathered a pass from Raheem Sterling, shifted the ball inside City captain Vincent Kompany and then curled an exquisite shot into Joe Hart’s top-left corner from outside the box.But City reacted quickly and after Sergio Aguero had hit the post, they drew level in the 25th minute when Aguero set up strike partner Edin Dzeko to beat Simon Mignolet from 10 yards. A frenetic first half gave way to a more circumspect second period, but Coutinho gave the hosts victory with 15 minutes to play when he wriggled inside from the left flank and arced a shot past Hart from 25 yards.It was his second stunning goal in a week, following his early strike in last weekend’s 2-0 win at Southampton, and echoed his winning goal from Liverpool’s 3-2 win over City in last season’s corresponding fixture.Victory took Liverpool up to fifth place, two points behind Manchester United, who occupy the fourth and final Champions League berth, and three points below Arsenal, who climbed to third by beating Everton 2-0.Olivier Giroud had been one of the villains of Arsenal’s shock 3-1 loss at home to Monaco in the Champions League in mid-week, missing a succession of chances, but he atoned with the opening goal at the Emirates Stadium.The France striker struck six minutes before halftime, steering Mesut Ozil’s right-wing corner home with an adroit right-foot volley, and Tomas Rosicky sealed victory late on with a deflected shot. “We were focused. It was a mentally determined performance,” said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose side now trail City by four points.”You could see we suffered on Wednesday night against Monaco and that was still in our mind, but we were patient. That got us a good chance and we got a good win today.”EPL RESULTS MATCHDAY 27Liverpool 2-1 Man City (Sunday)Arsenal 2-0 Everton (Sunday) Saturday Man Utd 2-0 SunderlandWest Ham 1-3 Crystal PalaceBurnley 0-1 SwanseaNewcastle 1-0 Aston Villa Stoke 1-0 HullWest Brom 1-0 Southampton –last_img read more

Jacob Trouba injury update: New York Rangers defenseman leaves game vs. Lightning

first_imgUPDATE: Jacob Trouba will not return (upper body).— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) November 15, 2019It’s unclear how or when Trouba got hurt, or if it’s serious or not; given the score was 8-1 after the second period, it’s also possible that Trouba is being held out as a precaution. In any case, it doesn’t bode well for the Rangers, who are 8-6-2 to start the season and sit four points out of a wild card spot.Without one of their blue-chip acquisitions during the offseason, the Rangers would not only miss one of their biggest assets on special teams but their top-pairing right-hand defenseman who brings size, offense and puck-moving ability to the lineup.Through 16 games this season, the 6-3, 209-pound blueliner has a goal and seven assists while averaging 23:17 for the Blueshirts. The New York Rangers may see themselves without one of their top-4 defensemen for a bit after Jacob Trouba suffered an upper-body injury against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. Trouba skated 12:22 before going to the locker room near the end of the second period. Brendan Smith shifted back to defense and took his place. New York later announced that the 25-year-old blueliner would not finish the remainder of the contest.last_img read more
