Lambert closer to Reds switch

first_img Having helped Saints to two promotions and then impressing in the Premier League, he admits he will leave St Mary’s with a heavy heart. He said: “There’s lots of emotions as you can imagine so it’s something I need to address and obviously I will address all parties when I get the chance.” Liverpool are also understood to have made an improved offer of £25million for Lambert’s Southampton team-mate Adam Lallana after having an initial £20million bid rejected. Southampton and England striker Rickie Lambert appears a step closer to completing a move to Liverpool after undergoing a medical on Merseyside. The Anfield club are understood to have agreed a £4million deal for the 32-year-old, who was once on their books as an academy player. Liverpool are thought to be keen to complete a deal before Lambert heads to England’s pre-World Cup training camp in the United States on Sunday. Lambert told Sky Sports News: “The medical went well but as you know I can’t say anything. “I’ll speak properly about it, hopefully, very shortly. “It’s been a crazy football year to be honest, the way it’s carrying on.” Lambert was asked if he had spoken to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard about the move while with him on England duty over the past week. He said: “I’ve spoken to Stevie a while ago, but I’ll speak properly on Monday.” News of Lambert’s impending move to his boyhood club came as a surprise when it emerged on Thursday evening. Lambert was released by Liverpool at the age of 15 in 1997 and was later shown the door by Blackpool after moving to the Lancashire club as a trainee. He did eventually turn professional and played in the lower divisions with Macclesfield, Stockport, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers before finally flourishing at Southampton.

Naomi Osaka becomes world’s highest-paid female athlete

first_imgLONDON: Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka has become the highest paid female athlete in the world, topping American great Serena Williams.According to the Forbes magazine, Osaka earned $37.4 million in the last 12 months from prize money and endorsements, $1.4 million more than Williams, setting an all-time earnings record for a female athlete in a single year. Maria Sharapova previously held the record with $29.7 million in 2015. Since Forbes began tracking women athletes’ income in 1990, tennis players have topped the annual list every year. Osaka, a two-time Grand Slam champion, ranks No. 29 on the 2020 Forbes list of the world’s 100 top-paid athletes while Williams is No. 33. The complete Forbes list, due to be released next week, has not featured two women since 2016, the magazine says. The ascension puts an end to a decisive winning streak for Williams, who has been the world’s highest-paid female athlete each of the past four years, with annual pre-tax income ranging from $18 million to $29 million. The 23-time Grand Slam champion has collected almost $300 million during her career from endorsers that have swarmed the 38-year-old star.

Indian Premier League Yuvraj Singh likely to return in playing XI against Kolkata Knight Riders

first_imghighlights New Delhi: The fourth playoff spot is yet to be grabbed going into the final day of league stage in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have an outside chance (only mathematically), the real tussle is between the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Even Mumbai Indians (MI) will be looking to win their last league game against KKR to claim a place in the top two and have an extra chance to qualify for the finals.With a place in the top two up for grabs, there is no chance of MI experimenting and according to the reports in India Today, they have decided to include the legendary Yuvraj Singh in the playing XI. The left-hander has warmed the bench throughout the season after playing in four matches scoring 98 runs which also includes a half-century in the losing cause. He scored his runs at a strike-rate of 130.67 and this move could eventually turn out to be game-changing for MI. Mumbai Indians is likely to drop one of their overseas players in order to accommodate veteran southpaw Yuvraj Singh in the line-up. Yuvraj Singh, has played in crunch situation and knows how to play in the high-pressure games as one will be against Sunrisers. Evin Lewis seems to be the most vulnerable link in their playing XI at the moment as he hasn’t done well batting at number three. With Quinton de Kock doing well at the top and Rohit Sharma adamant on opening the innings, Lewis had to come down the order and that hasn’t worked for him.Also, with Barinder Sran not performing to the expectations, Beuran Hendricks might make his debut for the Mumbai based franchise. He was roped into the squad as Alzarri Joseph’s replacement and is yet to play a game this season. The left-arm seamer has decent numbers in South Africa domestic circuit in the shortest format and could be a good pick for this crucial encounter.If MI wins this game, SRH will become the first team in the IPL history to qualify for the playoffs with only 12 points to their name. Yuvraj Singh has been able to score 98 runs in four outings this season.Yuvraj Singh scored a half-century in the first game he played in IPL 12. Mumbai Indians are currently placed at number three spot.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Federal judge orders SU to turn over documents related to Bernie Fine investigation for 3rd time

In January, SU filed a document objecting to Peebles’ decisions, asserting that they were, in fact, protected.This most recent ruling is a part of an ongoing lawsuit filed by Laurie Fine, Bernie Fine’s wife, against ESPN. The lawsuit, filed on May 16, 2012, claims that ESPN aired statements that were false and defamatory, including one in which the network stated she knew her husband was sexually abusing a ball boy.SU could again object to Kahn’s decision and request for a higher district judge to review the decision.The university is not part of the lawsuit, but was subpoenaed to provide documents related to the 2005 investigation.

Helmets represent USC’s transition

first_imgThere was something different about the way the USC football team looked Saturday. The Trojans’ win last week was reminiscent of a very similar victory six weeks earlier, but with one key difference.On Oct. 18, the Trojans dominated a weak Colorado team in an afternoon game at the Coliseum, winning by a final score of 56-28. Saturday, the Trojans dominated a weak Notre Dame team in an afternoon game at the Coliseum, winning by a final score of 49-14. Visually, the latter was a much more beautiful performance to watch, but that had nothing to do with the final point difference or the historical legitimacy of the opponent.The Trojans wore their original helmets.The distinction is subtle. In fact, it wasn’t until this Monday when I was looking through photos of the game that I noticed the change. But the classic cardinal helmets that have been virtually unchanged for generations of Trojan football were back on the heads of the USC football players after a brief hibernation in the locker room. I hope that remains the case as long as I’m a student of this fine academic institution.Before the Colorado game, the Trojans adjusted their usual uniform and unveiled new chrome helmets. The team stuck with the new style against Utah, Cal and UCLA. The traditional cardinal home jersey, white away jersey and gold pants were still the same, but the outfit was coronated by a brighter, shinier headpiece.It looked atrocious.Now I’m not a huge fashion guy. I would honestly say that 67 percent of the shirts in my closet are St. Louis Cardinals T-shirts and I recently noticed myself walking around campus wearing athletic shorts, loafers and business socks.But I can distinguish a classy throwback from a regrettable redesign. I graduated from kindergarten, so I have a basic understanding of colors.And the colors just didn’t match with the chrome helmets.The helmet looked almost scarlet in the glare of the sunlight, much lighter than the cardinal jersey. It didn’t look as bad with the road white jersey on, when the contrast was a bit more natural. But at home, the helmet stuck out like Harry and Lloyd at the cocktail party in “Dumb & Dumber.” My mom, who knows a lot about Trojan tradition as a USC alumna, put it best while watching the Cal game during Trojan Family Weekend:“It looks like a Christmas ornament.”When the Fighting Irish came to town, USC ditched the futuristic failure for the old-school staple. It was a fitting tribute to the history of the rivalry, as Notre Dame is the only team on the schedule that really does rival  the Trojans’ tradition of excellence in football.Forgive me for going on a 450-word rant without actually analyzing any football. It’s been a rough week regarding term paper due dates, so I’ve used up just about all of my remaining critical thinking energy for the semester.But I think the helmet flip-flop is actually very indicative of the general state of USC football as well as where this season stands in the big picture.USC football is something really, really awesome. The fact that we get to walk past six Heisman trophies — insert NCAA sanctions joke — anytime we attend class by way of Heritage Hall or sit in the same stadium that was home to 11 national championship teams — insert same NCAA sanctions joke — on Saturdays is something that any self-described sports fan here should never forget. As fellow Daily Trojan columnist Jake Davidson wrote after the Trojans’ domination of Washington State, we are so lucky to be a part of a fan base with more happy times than, say, Washington State’s.But the current installment of USC football is not exactly on the same level that many Trojan fans expect. I came here to see USC football teams play in Rose Bowls and BCS championship bowls, not Sun Bowls or Holiday Bowls or other you can’t actually put that in a bowl Bowls.The higher expectations are the product of our generation. Today, attention spans disappear after about three seconds, kind of like Snapchats. Fans don’t have the patience for anything other than dominance every single year. If your team isn’t undefeated, it must be the coach’s fault.Athletic directors often cave to this pressure from fans and fire head coaches way sooner than they should be. This isn’t because of some cognitive error from ADs about the time it takes to build a program. It’s because boosters won’t put their names on new stadiums or student athlete centers if they aren’t happy. That financial support of boosters is crucial in the era of multi-million dollar commercialization.I’m beyond excited for the inaugural playoff that will replace the aforementioned BCS format. College football has never been more exciting  given the playoff and the level of national parity. But TV deals and conference realignments show that more teams are pledging the resources to be a top-level team, and fans want to win now.The existential crisis for USC going forward is whether to innovate or embrace tradition.On one hand, we see teams like Alabama who are steeped in history and have dominated recent years by playing good ol’ fashioned, hard-nosed football. On the other hand, we see teams like Oregon that had no tradition before this century but invented a new identity with fancy jerseys — think we’d ever pull that helmet stunt if the Ducks hadn’t started that trend? — and a revolutionized spread offense. (Boy, do I hope those two teams play for the national championship…)So what should USC do moving forward? Should it unveil a third jersey where everything is chrome and shiny? If the up-tempo offense seems to work so well, should the offense adopt an all-out spread attack? Can USC compete for a national championship with a Pete Carroll disciple as head coach?All of those questions are worth their own column, but I’ll conclude my regular season assessment with this: Carroll’s first year record at USC? 6-6. Ed Orgeron’s first year record as head coach of Ole Miss? 3-8. After being considered for the USC job, James Franklin and Chris Petersen’s respective first-year records at Penn State and Washington? Just 6-6 and 8-5.All of those records are worse than Steve Sarkisian’s 8-4 first regular season record at USC.I believe in Sarkisian going forward. I don’t doubt his play-calling that much, I don’t doubt his choice in defensive coordinator, and I definitely don’t doubt his ability to inspire players given his recruiting record. If Trojan fans can remain patient and keep supporting Sarkisian, this team will be competing in College Football Playoff games sooner than you think.I have no idea who the Trojans will play, but I also have a lot of confidence that the Trojans will have a dominating bowl win reminiscent of last year to cap off the season.But please, ditch the chrome helmets for the bowl game.Luke Holthouse is a sophomore majoring in broadcast and digital journalism and policy, planning and development.
