Captain charged in Greek shipwreck

first_imgATHENS, Greece – The captain of a cruise ship that sank off an Aegean Sea island, sending more than 1,500 passengers and crew onto rescue boats, was charged Saturday with causing a shipwreck through negligence. The 469-foot Sea Diamond sank into the sea after hitting a well-marked and charted reef on Thursday, in fair weather, inside the Greek island of Santorini’s sea-filled volcanic crater. The ship’s Greek captain was also charged with breaching international shipping safety regulations and polluting the environment, a Merchant Marine Ministry spokeswoman said. Jean-Christophe Allain, 45, and his 16-year-old daughter, Maud, from Doue-la-Fontaine in western France were listed as missing, feared to have been trapped in their flooded lower-deck cabin. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mbappe makes winning Parc des Princes debut

first_imgThen four minutes from time Mbappe rushed onto Neymar’s assist with his close range shot bounding off Jeremy Morel to settle the electric encounter.This sixth successive league win pushed Unai Emery’s side three points clear of defending champions Monaco who had maintained their title push with a 3-0 win over Strasbourg 24 hours earlier.Lyon’s visit on paper had looked to be PSG’s toughest test of the Ligue 1 season so far, and so it proved.Despite their 466 million euro strike force of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Mbappe seven time former champions Lyon emerged with plenty of honour, if not the three points.PSG were restricted to just a handful of shots in the first period as Lyon’s defence doggedly refused to roll over.Nice’s forward Mario Balotelli celebrates after scoring against Rennes on September 17, 2017 at Roazhon Park in Rennes, western France © AFP / JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARDPSG’s best chances came a minute from the break when on a counter attack Mbappe, appearing before his home supporters for the first time after outings at Metz and Celtic, fed Neymar with the Brazilian’s rasping shot boxed away by Lyon keeper Anthony Lopes.On the restart Mbappe was switched to take Neymar’s place on the right.The second half was only minutes old when Lyon striker Nabil Fekir troubled PSG keeper Alphonse Aerola with a tight-angled shot.On 55 minutes Neymar, brought down outside the box by Fekir, flicked the ensuing freekick over the wall only for a diving Lopes to parry the ball away from the top far corner.The PSG crowd then had its collective heart in its mouth as Lyon launched attack after attack on Aerola in the home goal in a thrilling passage of play.PSG captain Thiago Silva had to use his head to stop Lucas Tousart’s header, then seconds later Tanguy Ndombele unleashed a superb strike from 30m which had sparks flying off the crossbar.On 72 minutes Emery introduced Giovani Lo Celso for Julian Draxler, and the move proved decisive when Lo Celso crossed from the left with Cavani nudging the ball towards goal with the outside of his foot before its deflection off Lyon defender Marcelo.Lopes then did brilliantly to save a Cavani penalty awarded after Ferland Mendy had felled Mbappe.Cavani struck the spot kick low and left with Lopes’ intervention sending it ricocheting off the upright and to safety.Amiens’ Prince Gouano (R) clashes with Olympique de Marseille’s forward Clinton Njie during their French L1 match on September 17, 2017 at the Licorne stadium in Amiens © AFP / FRANCOIS LO PRESTIWith four minutes remaining and Lyon looking for a deserved equaliser Neymar passed to Mbappe with the 18-year-old Monaco recruit’s close range shot hitting Lopes and bouncing off Morel into the Lyon goal.Lyon, losing for the first time this season, left Parc des Princes in fifth place, eight points adrift of the leaders.Lyon coach Bruno Genesio reflected: “I don’t think there’s a club in France that can compete with PSG for the title, but for one match, yes.”Earlier a sizzling Mario Balotelli strike ten minutes from time gave Nice a 1-0 win at Rennes and Marseille pulled out of an early season slump when a Clinton Njie brace gave the ambitious southerners a 2-0 win at Amiens.On Saturday a revitalised Radamel Falcao grabbed a brace in Monaco’s 3-0 win over Strasbourg and Saint-Etienne moved up to third with a 1-0 win over Dijon.Nantes continued their good form under Claudio Ranieri, as they beat Caen 1-0 to make it four games unbeaten without conceding a goal while Bordeaux stayed unbeaten with a 1-0 victory at Toulouse.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Kylian Mbappe celebrates after scoring the team’s second goal on September 17, 2017 © AFP / CHRISTOPHE SIMONPARIS, France, Sep 17 – Kylian Mbappe played a decisive role on his Parc des Princes debut for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday in a thrilling 2-0 win over Lyon with both goals accreditated to the visitors.Lyon’s youngsters proved more than a match for PSG’s multi-millionaires who had to wait until the last quarter of an hour before Lyon defender Marcelo deflected the ball into his own goal.last_img read more

Man City overcome Chelsea test to maintain title hope

first_imgHowever, Kevin de Bruyne’s deflected strike breathed new life into Pep Guardiola’s men and a trademark left-footed finish from Riyad Mahrez saw City edge a thrilling encounter.Defeat ends a run of six straight Premier League wins for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, but there was still plenty of encouragement for the Blues on a ground where they were thrashed 6-0 last season.De Bruyne flashed a shot inches wide in a bright opening by the hosts as they sought to make amends for a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in their last outing before the international break.However, it was Chelsea who began to take control of the game in the first quarter.Willian drilled wide at the end of a flowing counter-attack before Fikayo Tomori’s effort after a corner ricocheted around the City box also flew just off target.There was no surprise when the visitors eventually took the lead 21 minutes in when Kante made the sort of run from midfield that Lampard made his trademark during his playing career before slotting the ball under Ederson from Mateo Kovacic’s wonderful pass.City bemoaned their luck in defeat at Anfield a fortnight ago, but got the slice of fortune they needed to gain a foothold back in the game eight minutes later when De Bruyne’s tame shot deflected off Kurt Zouma to leave Kepa Arrizabalaga wrong-footed.Mahrez then turned the game on its head with a brilliant jinking run and finish into the far corner as City clicked into gear.The champions should have been further ahead by the break as Kepa’s poor clearance gifted possession to Sergio Aguero, but the Argentine hit the bar with just the keeper to beat.In a game that flowed from end-to-end, City could never feel comfortable with a single goal lead and Kante was close to his second when a goalbound shot was deflected behind by Fernandinho.At the other end a well-worked corner saw Mahrez pick out Joao Cancelo, but the Portuguese full-back did not get a clean strike away before Kepa prevented Mahrez sealing all three points.Willian sent a dipping volley just over and Mason Mount’s free-kick was inches away from snatching a point for Chelsea late on.But City’s margin of victory could have been even greater as Raheem Sterling found the bottom corner deep into stoppage time, only for VAR to rule the goal out for offside.0Shares0000(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Magic Mahrez: Riyad Mahrez celebrates his strike to put Manchester City 2-1 up © AFP / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Nov 23 – Manchester City came from behind to leapfrog Chelsea into third in the Premier League with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad to keep the English champions’ title challenge alive.Liverpool’s late win at Crystal Palace earlier in the day meant City started 12 points behind the leaders and looked in danger of failing to cut that gap when N’Golo Kante gave Chelsea a deserved lead midway through the first half.last_img read more

Every Premier League club’s greatest ever manager ranked – from worst to best!

first_img 4. Jose Mourinho – Chelsea – Three Premier League titles, an FA Cup and three League Cups makes Mourinho Chelsea’s best ever manager. Despite being sacked last season, the now Manchester United boss is still firmly in the hearts of Blues fans for transforming the club into the European powerhouse they are now. He is not just Chelsea’s best, but also widely considered as one of the greatest ever managers football has seen, despite being a hugely controversial character. 20 20. Phil Brown – Hull City (click the arrow right, to see who is ranked at number one!) – Brown was the first manager to take Hull City to the top flight in their 104-year history when he led the Tigers to play-off success against Bristol City in 2008. He took them a highest ever position of third (kept off top spot on goal difference) during the club’s debut Premier League season and secured their survival before being sacked the following season after a series of poor results and controversial incidents. 17. Ted Bates – Southampton – Bates is fondly known as ‘Mr Southampton’, having served the club as a player, manager, director and president. He spent 18 years as boss and guided the Saints to the First Division from the Third Division. He has won more games (346) than any other Southampton manager. 20 12. Eddie Howe – Bournemouth – Howe is in his second spell as manager after two spells as at the club as a player. In his first stint as manager, he saved Bournemouth from relegation from League Two, despite a 17-point deficit when he took over, and got the Cherries promoted the season after. He left for Burnley but returned in 2012 to take Bournemouth to the Championship and then to the Premier League. He was voted the Manager of the Decade and the Football League Award in 2015 before securing the Cherries’ top-flight status. 20 20 20 20 5. Bill Nicholson – Tottenham Hotspur – Player, coach and then manager who led Tottenham to league and cup double success in 1961, the first club to do so in the 20th century. Under Nicholson, the club also became the first British side to win a European trophy when they won the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1963. Between 1958 and 1974, the Yorkshireman oversaw a string of cup successes, including another two FA Cups, two League Cups and the Uefa Cup. 20 20 20 8. Joe Mercer – Manchester City – Mercer performed miracles with City in his six years at the club. He took over in 1965 and won the Second Division (now the Championship) in his first season to restore the club’s top-flight status. Two seasons later he won the First Division title before winning the FA Cup the following year in 1969 and the League Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup after that. 3. Herbert Chapman – Arsenal – The man who built Arsenal and gave his life to the club. Chapman was in charge for nine years between 1925 and 1934, dying mid-season while on course for a historic third consecutive First Division title with the Gunners. He was an innovator, proposing a Europe-wide trophy 20 years before the introduction of the European Cup. He advocated the use of floodlights, the building of Highbury’s West Stand and clock (now known as the ‘Clock End’). He added a scoreboard and turnstiles to the stadium and changed the kit to add white sleeves to the red shirt and hoops to the socks. 19. Gary Megson – West Bromwich Albion – Perhaps not a stylish choice but he transformed the Baggies from a club on the brink of relegation from the First Division (now the Championship) to the Premier League on a shoestring budget. He got West Brom promoted to the top flight twice in his four and a half years at the Hawthorns despite the club’s dire financial state and a poor relationship with a difficult chairman. 11. Tom Watson – Sunderland – Watson was Sunderland boss back in 1888 for six years and won three First Division titles in four seasons. He is one of only four managers in the history of the English game to have ever won the league title with two sides (he later did it with Liverpool). 20 20 6. Howard Kendall – Everton – Kendall won the league with Everton in 1970 before becoming manager of the Toffees and repeating the feat in 1985 and 1987. Kendall also won the FA Cup in 1984 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup the following year as Everton battled Liverpool for supremacy of England. It is thought that Everton would have won the European Cup, such was their dominance, but a ban on English clubs in Europe after the Heysel disaster caused much frustration to Kendall and led to him moving on to Athletic Bilbao. He returned in 1997 for a season and remains the last English manager to win a European competition with an English club. Every fan has picked their fantasy team from every player who ever played for their club, but who would be the manager?Liverpool fans argue between Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly, while Manchester United fans do the same with Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson.But who is the best?talkSPORT has picked every current Premier League club’s greatest manager and power ranked them from worst to first for what they did for the club.Click the arrow above, right, to see who is at number one! 10. Tony Waddington – Stoke City – Waddington brought the likes of Stanley Matthews and Gordon Banks to the club and is responsible for their most successful spell in the 1960s. The Potters were crowned league champions under his stewardship in 1962 and reached the League Cup final two years later. He took Stoke into Europe after winning the League Cup in 1972 but got knocked out in the first round of the Uefa Cup. 20 16. John Toshack – Swansea City – Toshack arrived at Swansea as a 28-year-old with no managerial experience but was an instant hit. He took Swansea from the old Fourth Division to the Second Division after back-to-back promotions before his greatest achievement of guiding the Swans to the top flight in 1981. While there, he achieved wins against Manchester United, English champions Aston Villa and European champions Liverpool, as well as a 5-1 drubbing of Leeds on the opening day of the season. The Swans were in with a shout of title glory but finished sixth. 20 2. Bob Paisley – Liverpool – Liverpool fans will forever be split over whether Paisley or Bill Shankly was their greatest ever manager, but the former’s trophy cabinet nicks it for him. He won six league titles but his biggest success came in Europe where he led the Reds to three European Cups and a Uefa Cup in his time in charge between 1974 and 1983. He brought in iconic players like Graeme Souness, Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen and is Britain’s second most decorated manager. 20 14. Graham Taylor – Watford – Taylor took 87 per cent of the vote when the Football League asked who Watford’s best ever manager was, ahead of the likes of Aidy Boothroyd, Ron Burgess and Ray Lewington. Taylor was in charge from 1977 to 1987 and was hired as a 32-year-old by Elton John. He took the Hornets from the Fourth Division to the First Division in only five seasons, finishing second in their first season in the top flight, before playing the Uefa Cup and reaching the FA Cup final in 1984. 13. John Lyall – West Ham United – West Ham won the 1975 FA Cup in Lyall’s first season as manager and reached the 1976 Cup Winners’ Cup final. They were relegated in 1978, but still managed to win the FA Cup again during their exile from the top flight after beating Arsenal in 1980. Lyall restored their First Division status a season later and ensured the Hammers’ best ever finish of third place in the 1985/86 season. 20 7. Claudio Ranieri – Leicester City – The honour would have gone to the late, great Jimmy Bloomfield had last season’s miracle not happened but Ranieri takes it for turning relegation certainties into Premier League champions. The Italian was the bookies’ favourite for the sack at the start of the season and despite being in the top four for the majority of the season, he always insisted his priority was reaching 40 points and Premier League survival. He will lead the club into the Champions League for the first time this season. 9. Harry Potts – Burnley – Potts managed Burnley to the second of their Division One (now Premier League) titles in 1960 and stayed at the club for 12 years in what is seen as the Clarets’ golden era. He returned to the club in 1977 but was relegated and eventually sacked. After his death, the club renamed the road that passes the stadium ‘Harry Potts Way’. 20 15. Steve McClaren – Middlesbrough – McClaren guided Middlesbrough to the League Cup in 2004 and consequently their first expedition into European football in their history, reaching the last 16 of the Uefa Cup. He also took them to a best-ever finish of seventh – ensuring another season in Europe. Despite the league form trailing off, Boro reached the FA Cup semi-final and Uefa Cup final which established him as the club’s most successful manager. 20 20 18. Steve Coppell – Crystal Palace – Coppell is Palace’s most successful manager and also the club’s second longest serving manager after being appointed boss on four occasions between 1984 and 2000. He led the club to an FA Cup final, two play-off wins and third place in the First Division (now Premier League). He was voted as the Eagles’ manager in the club’s best ever XI. 20 20 1. Sir Alex Ferguson – Manchester United – A tough choice with everything Matt Busby achieved and overcame but for longevity and titles Ferguson nicks it. Britain’s most decorated manager turned United into England’s most successful club, winning 13 league titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups and two Champions Leagues, among other things. He is, in the eyes of many, the world’s greatest ever football manager.last_img read more
