QPR manager Harry Redknapp got the perfect birthday present as the Premier League’s bottom-placed side took three points from his former club Southampton in a 2-1 victory. Victory was the ideal tonic for Redknapp after waking up on his 66th birthday to damning reports of ill-discipline on a recent Dubai training camp. Rather than throw the strugglers off track, though, QPR performed admirably on the south coast and opened the scoring after just 14 minutes through Loic Remy. Saints looked shell-shocked having started the brighter and were somewhat fortunate to go in at the break level, with Gaston Ramirez following up a Julio Cesar fumble. Before Park Ji-sung sent a low cross from the right and Jay Bothroyd slotted home the winner. Press Association It took just 13 seconds for Adam Lallana, making his first home start in almost three months, to send over a cross which Christopher Samba was forced to put out for a corner. Jack Cork and Lallana put audacious long efforts wide as Saints continued to press for an opener, which almost came after 12 minutes. Rickie Lambert headed back across goal but neither Lallana nor former QPR winger Jason Puncheon were able to get a telling touch. Junior Hoilett then sent a fine through ball over to Remy, who burst through to strike past Artur Boruc. Nathaniel Clyne did well to deny Remy going through again, before the returning striker tested Boruc with a low strike. While QPR were still threatening, Saints had a new spark and, after seeing a shot deflect behind, Ramirez drew parity. Jay Rodriguez, on for Lallana, struck an audacious effort that bounced off Cesar into the path of Ramirez who dinked home nonchalantly. And whatever Pochettino said at the break seemed to work as the home side flew out of the blocks in the second half. Fox, Fonte and Lambert all had attempts, before Rodriguez’s curling effort from the edge of the box went inches over. Cesar was hurt in a collision with Rodriguez as he punched away a threatening Cork cross. Robert Green soon replaced the injured Brazilian, but not until after Hoilett threatened at the other end. Saints were still on top but they were again caught napping as Park sent over a low cross for Bothroyd to rifle home with 13 minutes remaining. Green did fantastically to deny a goalbound Maya Yoshida header as the hosts upped the ante but they could not find a way past the Hoops’ resilient backline.

Published on September 22, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: firstname.lastname@example.org | @mark_cooperjr Dyshawn Davis’ first plane ride was enjoyable. After the SU freshman linebacker got over some nerves about taking the cross country flight to Southern California last weekend, he relaxed while sitting on the plane.‘It went pretty good,’ Davis said. ‘I had a window seat, too, so it was — I thought I would be scared, but I actually liked it. Ears hurt a little bit after a while, but I liked it a lot.’Unfortunately for Davis, he didn’t get a chance to show a lot in his first collegiate road game against the Trojans. He recorded one tackle but said on Wednesday he was a little banged up during the game. He also said he was thinking a little too much about his assignments throughout the game. But in talking to coaches this week, he feels ready to play faster as Syracuse hosts Toledo on Saturday at noon in the Carrier Dome.Even though the results on the field weren’t enviable both individually and for his team, Davis said the trip was fun.‘Being on the West Coast and the weather, I never played in such perfect football weather,’ Davis said. ‘It wasn’t too cold, it wasn’t too hot, it wasn’t a breeze. It was just perfect.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I just loved the atmosphere, and I just loved competing against the best of the best. We didn’t get the win, but it was a good experience, and we’re moving on from there.’The Daily Orange spoke to Davis on Wednesday about SU’s upcoming opponent, Toledo. The Rockets are just 1-2 this season, but the two losses have come to ranked opponents then-No. 15 Ohio State (27-22) and No. 4 Boise State (40-15).The Daily Orange: What do you expect from the Toledo team you’ll be lining up against on Saturday?Davis: I know they’re going to come in here balls out ready to play. They play three (Bowl Championship Series) teams a year, and they lost their first two games to a BCS team and we’re that last. We talked about how Toledo beats at least one BCS team a year in their schedule and this year, after coming back after that loss, we’re not trying to let that happen.How important is it to bounce back from that loss by beating a solid Toledo team?It’s very important. We started off the season 2-0, we went into Southern Cal, we wanted to win, we didn’t get the win, and right now, this week, this is where we see ourselves as a team. Where do we stand, how hard do we work, how hard do we want it, how bad do the seniors want it?And we know Toledo’s coming in here, they’re a pretty good team, they played two top teams. They played Boise State and Ohio State, and they’re some good competitors. They competed, they stayed in the game and we know this win is not going to be easy.Toledo plays two quarterbacks, and they both get nearly the same amount of playing time. How do you prepare for that?Both quarterbacks are pretty equal, so there’s not much adjusting to what quarterback is in the game, what quarterback is out of the game. As a defense we’re just going in there, playing our game, execute our game plan, going to run the plays, whatever’s called. Like I said before, play 110 percent every play, play fast.Rockets wide receiver Eric Page is a dynamic playmaker. What do you have to do to contain him?Play our game. Like I said, play fast and play a little bit better than we played in Southern Cal. I feel like if everybody out there on defense did their job, everything will fall in place from there.What was the biggest thing the SU defense learned against USC that it can improve in this game?I feel like as a defense we need to mature more. Toughen up a little bit. Such as myself, getting hurt, limping off, little cuts and bruises. We’ve got to learn that’s all part of the game. Don’t limp, you have to be tough, suck it up, go in there, put your head down, buckle your chin strap up and keep playing. So as a defense I feel like this week we’re getting there. We’re a young defense and we are all learning, and everything is coming along pretty email@example.com Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments

On Wednesday morning, Dino Babers spoke publicly for the first time since two of his players were allegedly stabbed by former teammate Naesean Howard on Saturday evening. The first-year SU head coach said defensive back Chauncey Scissum is still in the hospital and he hopes that Scissum will be released later this week, while defensive back Corey Winfield was released on Monday.In response to an article posted on Syracuse.com Wednesday morning that cited a source saying Babers told the team to not wear any Syracuse gear in public since Howard’s “people” may still be lurking around campus, Babers heavily refuted that.“The thing about the meeting was correct. Everything else written in the article was incorrect and inaccurate,” Babers said. “I actually told them to put their Syracuse ‘S’ on and wear it proudly around campus.”Babers confirmed that earlier in the year, Howard approached him in the parking lot adjacent to Manley Field House and started a conversation. The head coach said Howard said, “’Hey, I would like to join the football team,’” to which Babers responded, “’Who are you?’”Babers then told Howard he had to go through a standard background check for walk-ons in order to be given a shot, but eventually that background check wasn’t satisfactory enough for the new staff to offer Howard a chance to walk on.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Everybody has a right to change … but patterns are something that you try to stay away from and we just decided as a staff the pattern was too strong,” Babers said. “It’s not a right to be on a football team … it’s a privilege.”MORE COVERAGE:Witness details alleged stabbing, South Campus partyDefensive back Corey Winfield out of hospital 2 days after stabbing incidentCourt documents: Naesean Howard stabbed SU football players multiple times The Tuesday morning meeting with the team wasn’t prompted by the stabbing, Babers said, and that he holds a meeting at 8 a.m. every Tuesday in the offseason. This one just happened to be the first after Winfield and Scissum were allegedly stabbed and there were no specific safety instructions given based on Saturday evening’s events.“You can’t live life looking over your shoulder,” Babers said. “I think these young men will be just fine.”Howard is due back in court at 10 a.m. on Friday. Both players he allegedly stabbed are doing well, Babers said, and when asked about Howard, Babers never mentioned him by name.“It’s a blessing both of these young men are still with us,” Babers said.

During the period 227 shops were closed as the group completed its resizing of the retail estate following the Triennial ReviewLikewise, European retail also struggled during the pandemic, with NGR dropping by 48% from £144.1 million in 2019 to £75.5 million.But as a considerable number of bettors shifted from retail sports betting to online gaming, GVC highlighted that online NGR jumped from £1.05 billion in 2019 to £1.25 billion, an increase of 19%.Commenting on the results, newly-appointed CEO Shay Segev said: “Given the unprecedented trading environment, GVC has delivered an encouraging performance in the first half, underlining the strength of our diversified business model and the expertise, adaptability and dedication of our people.“These results show that we have a strong foundation.

Looking forward, the Board now expects GVC to deliver underlying EBITDA of £720m-£740m for the full year, on the condition that there are ‘no further material disruptions’.Supporting its EBITDA performance, GVC delivered a 23% reduction in group operating costs to £423 million, down from £548 million, enforcing immediate COVID-19 costs controls and identifying a further £20 million in Ladbrokes Coral post acquisition co-synergies.Addressing plans to expand its operations, GVC stated that it has applied for multiple sports-betting licences pursuant to the existing German online gambling regulation and ‘fully expects that its applications will be successful’. Brazil and The Netherlands were also recognised as key opportunities for the betting group’s expansion.The US remains the leading driver for growth for GVC however, with its BetMGM joint venture now operating in seven of the 21 states where gambling is allowed. GVC expects to go live in an additional four states by the year-end.GVC ended its trading statement by detailing its prudence with regards to trading under the continued uncertainty of further lockdowns and restrictions as a result of the coronavirus, with the board cancelling dividends for year trading.

Kairos Media, a social media focused digital communications agency, has announced the acquisition of esports organisation “Lightning Pandas” who will return to the esports fray after a three year hiatus.Lightning Pandas was originally founded by Kairos Media co-founder Michael Craddock and Call of Duty professional Shane “ShAnE” McKerral, but has not been active in the scene since 2014. Back then, the team were a well-known Call of Duty squad who rose in popularity through YouTube and colourful branding.Kairos Media has now acquired the organisation, and will use it as the company moves into the esports market. Kairos’ first move is the signing of Sean “Dragonn” Allen, a professional FIFA player to the roster on the day of release of FIFA 18.Many will recognise Sean Allen, as he was West Ham United’s first FIFA player and runner up of the FIWC two years ago. This year he failed to qualify for the tournament but was involved in a coaching capacity, sharing the winning moments with Unilad’s eventual winner, Gorilla. There’s little doubt he’s one of the better known players in competitive FIFA with the scene still generally dominated by YouTube content, pack openings and less by competition-driven Twitch figures.Rahul Uppal, Esports Manager at Kairos Media commented: “Following their three-year hiatus, we’re excited to announce the official return of the Lightning Pandas. While most people will recognise the Lightning Pandas as the creative offspring of Mike and Shane, we’re now in a strong position to take the organisation to the next level.In addition to this, we’re delighted to welcome a player of Sean’s calibre to the Lightning Pandas, who does not only share the competitive ambitions of the company, but also our vision for the future.”Sean Allen said: “I couldn’t be happier to join the Lightning Pandas and become their first esports player. The experience, resources and knowledge of the company presents me with an invaluable opportunity to progress as a player and build my online presence. This is a massive move in the right direction for me and I’m really excited for the future.”Esports Insider says: Kairos Media are making their move into esports and have started it off with a big name in the FIFA scene. They’re definitely one to keep an eye on as they evidently have lofty ambitions in the esports space.
