Chelsea legends reunite for triple-trophy anniversary

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The match will celebrate the 20th anniversary of winning the League Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and Super Cup in the same year, which Le Saux thinks helped paved the way for the club to be taken over by Roman Abramovich.”Definitely. That team was a new era,” Le Saux said at the launch of the Chelsea Legends match. “When I was at the club from ’87 to ’93, all the talk was about the team from the 1970s that won the FA Cup and Cup Winners’ Cup.”They were the successful Chelsea team of those couple of decades. The first season after I joined we got relegated – I had nothing to do with that! – and coming to the club after the FA Cup win in ’97, that whole era through to 2003 when I left, Gianfranco left and Roman bought the club, that was a pivotal period in the club’s history.”The last game I played for Chelsea in 2003 against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge was the end of an era – it was Gianfranco’s last game, Dennis and Gus [Poyet] had already gone. It was that year that Roman bought the club.”I’ve never asked him but it would be interesting to find out, whether he’d say or not I don’t know, if that had any bearing on his decision, given that we pipped Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League.”Chelsea had only won one top-flight league title ahead of Abramovich’s takeover of the club in 2003 but have since won five more as the club have been transformed into one of world football’s super-powers. The match against Inter celebrates one of the last successful achievements before the big takeover and Le Saux, who is bringing together the legends group, spoke of the pride he had playing with that group of players.  “It’s 20 years since we won those three trophies that we’re celebrating. It’s a group that I’ve got such affection for. In all my time in football, we had such close friendships both on and off the pitch, fantastic characters and personalities – I could tell you stories all day long about some of the laughs and moments we had as a group. It was a very strong dressing room individually but also together.Chelsea legends versus Inter Forever“There were so many nationalities but when we were all together we made sure that we all spoke English. We had all the wind-ups that you have at football clubs, where new players would come in and have to sing a song at lunch in the canteen in front of everyone and get hammered.”That was a proper initiation for players. And we played wonderful football. I look at that team and we had our flaws, of course we did. We didn’t manage to win the league, but we were a big game team. I always talk about the support structure of the club back then.”We didn’t have good training facilities, and I picked up a couple of injuries that I put down to that. All of that is important. It’s all the margins, and turning up at Harlington on a wet winter’s day when you’ve just lost a game could be psychologically quite tough.”That sounds like an excuse, but we definitely had the talent and the quality in the team to win the league. It was just the consistency – there were some games we didn’t convert. But we had fun playing. It was such a positive style of football that we played and a joy to be part of.”Some of the goals we scored with link-up play, team play as well as individual brilliance – we scored a variety of goals. I’ve got very fond memories, so I’m looking forward to at least sharing all of those memories and hopefully some of those experiences on the pitch with the fans and the players.”Chelsea legends versus Inter ForeverMeanwhile, Chelsea have gone on a bad run of late in the Premier League, losing their last two games by three-goal margins. They have dropped out of the top four and likely face a battle with Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool to get into the Champions League. Le Saux doesn’t think that Chelsea lack leaders as others have suggested and he thinks that the trend in modern football is for quiet leaders who don’t necessarily bark orders to their team-mates. “I think football’s very different now. Players are a bit more individual now – I’m not talking about Chelsea, but in general,” he added. “I think they’re quieter, they’re not as vocal. They don’t seem to get on and motivate each other in quite the same way, so those obvious leadership skills don’t seem quite so apparent.”It doesn’t mean they’re not there, you just don’t see it in quite the same way. All my career, wherever I’ve been, there have always been players that were very vocal, good leaders, people holding each other to a very high standard.Chelsea 1998 League Cup win - Vialli and WiseChelsea 1998 League Cup win“That’s certainly not a criticism of current players. Technically and fitness-wise, the standard in general has gone up. The less-good players are better now than the less-good players of my day. You look at someone like N’Golo Kante.”He’s not someone who goes around barking orders but he leads in the way that he plays. There are lots of those sorts of players. It’s a slightly different psychology, this younger generation compared to ours.”If I didn’t put a cross on Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s head he would absolutely tear into me, and I won’t even get onto Alan Shearer. I’d love to have been part of this team. I love playing wing-back. I played it for England in ’98 and it was a role that suited me.”I always liked to get forward and created a lot of assists over the years, so wing-back for me would have been brilliant. What I admire about this team and other teams at the top of the league is that ability to give someone the ball under pressure, and then to handle it.”We had that in our team with Roberto Di Matteo and Dennis in midfield – you could give them the ball and they would be comfortable. Gianfranco could take the ball with three players around him and still wriggle his way out of trouble or make the right pass.Chelsea 1998 League Cup win - Dennis Wise“The range of passing of Frank Leboeuf was like David Luiz, so it’s all shades of the same colour in that sense. I’m sure if you spoke to these players and showed them some of the games we played in, they’d be looking at it thinking ‘What a good team you were’.”Just going out there [for pictures] with the Inter Milan players, Javier Zanetti, Youri Djorkaeff, a World Cup winner and European Championship winner with France, and Francesco Toldo, a fantastic goalkeeper. Those are players that command the highest status in the game.”Tickets for the match are available from just £20 for adults and £10 for concessions on Chelsea’s official website, and are on sale to season ticket holders now, with access for members to follow on Wednesday before the game goes on general sale this Friday.last_img read more

McKennie: I’m fired up for Bundesliga season

first_imgU.S. national team midfielder Weston McKennie says he is “fired up” for the new Bundesliga season as he is expected to take on an even bigger role with Schalke.McKennie broke through at Schalke during the 2017-18 campaign, making 25 appearances, and remained a regular fixture last season with 33 appearances and two goals across all competitions.Despite a frustrating campaign in which Schalke finished 14th, it was a strong season on a personal level for McKennie, who cemented himself as a fixture with the USMNT in the lead up to and during this summer’s Gold Cup.

Now back with Schalke for pre-season after suffering an ankle injury during this summer’s CONCACAF tournament, McKennie is eager to get started with the club as the team begins under new manager David Wagner.”I’m feeling good, but I’m not fully fit yet. That is totally normal after a long break though. I have had another week and a half of training and feel fitter every day,” McKennie told Schalke’s official website.”Our coaching staff work very hard with me and have created a special program to get me to 100 percent as quickly as possible. In Mittersill, for example, I completed a few extra training sessions with the fitness coaches.”He added: “That is the aim [to be ready for the start of the season].

My initial contract ran until 30 June 2022. It was not a difficult decision for me. I owe a lot to the club, I turned pro and I feel really happy here.”He added: “[Wagner and I] have spoken several times. He is a good guy and suits Schalke. I’m looking forward to working with him.”The midfielder was deployed at a number of position last season, having played in the central midfield, as a center back and at fullback at times throughout his season.McKennie, though, has a preference, and that preference is to play in a central role, whether that’s in a more attacking sense like with the U.S. or in a more defensive role similar to that which he played when he first came up at Schake.”I have shown in the past that I can play in almost any position. The only thing I can’t do is play in goal! “I believe that I can show my abilities best as a holding or central midfielder. When I’m in the middle, I can see the game from all angles.”Schalke are set to open their season on Saturday against fourth-tier side SV Drochtersen/Assel in the DFB-Pokal before kicking off the club’s Bundesliga campaign against Borussia Monchengladbach on August 17.last_img read more

6000 Canadians evacuated 168 asked for aid after hurricane Maria minister

first_imgOTTAWA – International Development Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau says 6,000 Canadians who were in the path of hurricane Maria were evacuated before the storm hit.She said today 168 Canadians who chose not to leave have requested federal assistance in the wake of the devastating storm that is ravaging the Caribbean.That number includes 147 students on the hard-hit island of Dominica, who will need to be evacuated by boat to St. Lucia before they can be brought to Canada.Bibeau says the debris surrounding Dominica is complicating rescue efforts but adds everyone is safe and will be evacuated as soon as possible.She says 20 other people in the region who have medical needs will also be assisted by Canadian authorities.The storm’s death toll across the Caribbean climbed to at least 19, nearly all of them on Dominica.Maria slammed into Puerto Rico as a category four hurricane on Wednesday and was the strongest storm to hit the U.S. territory in over 80 years.Bibeau says the government didn’t receive any requests for aid from Canadians living on that island.Maria was expected to approach the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas late Thursday and early Friday.— With files form The Associated Presslast_img read more

Kennedy Stewart named mayor of Vancouver one of several BC turnovers

first_imgVANCOUVER – Former New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart has won a neck-and-neck mayoral race to lead Vancouver, as local government saw shakeups across the region.Supporters chanted, “Kennedy, Kennedy,” and broke out in dance as results came in early Sunday morning, heralding Stewart in as the first Independent mayor of Vancouver in more than 30 years.He scraped ahead of Non-Partisan Association candidate Ken Sim with 984 votes.“They voted for a plan that is bold but achievable,” Stewart told the crowd, adding he will begin immediately to deliver on campaign promises like increasing the housing supply and creating a Downtown Eastside task force with a focus on stemming the opioid crisis.Sim said he would not concede early Sunday morning.“As you know this has been a very unprecedented election. We’ve consulted with our advisers and our team, they mention there are still ballots to be counted. Barring that, let’s speak to the results we have tonight,” he said, congratulating Stewart.Stewart’s election ends Vision Vancouver’s 10 year rule under outgoing mayor Gregor Robertson, who didn’t seek re-election and leaves the city with a housing crisis that became the focus of the campaign.It was one of several significant turnovers in Metro Vancouver that also saw a comeback for former mayor Doug McCallum in Surrey and former firefighter Mike Hurley defeat five-term mayoral institution Derek Corrigan in Burnaby.In Nanaimo, New Democrat legislator Leonard Krog’s win put the minority provincial government’s hold on power into question as his departure will trigger a byelection.It won’t be enough to tip the balance of power to the Liberals’ favour against an NDP minority government that’s propped up by the Greens, but it would bring it to the brink.The Liberals have 42 seats in the house, the New Democrats 41, including Krog, the Greens have three seats and there is one Independent.Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps won a second term despite facing nine challengers and some controversies during the campaign, including her government’s decision to remove a sculpture of John A. Macdonald from the entrance to city hall.The campaign in Vancouver was marked by a crowded race of new candidates and parties with converging platforms focused on increasing housing supply in the face of the city’s affordability crisis.Stewart will lead 10 other councillors divided across party lines, including five NPA councillors and five from progressive parties.“I’ve been talking with them all the way through, all the way through this race and I think there are ideas we share in common and we’re just going to have to go policy by policy and make sure we’re not alienating anyone. I’m confident we can do it,” Stewart told reporters following his victory speech.Seven women also make up the majority.The city is somewhat unusual in Canada because it operates under a party system.Since 2008, centre-left Vision Vancouver has dominated council under Robertson but the party didn’t run a mayoral candidate this election.The centre-right NPA had a long-running grip on power before that, with some notable exceptions, including 2002 when the Coalition of Progressive Electors won the mayor’s office and eight of 10 council seats.Vancouver’s last independent mayor was Mike Harcourt, who served from 1980 to 1986, before going on to become premier.Voters in some cities reported longer waits than they’d experienced in previous elections.In Vancouver, the ballot was almost 13 centimetres longer than usual because of the 158 candidates on the list, the city said in a tweet. That meant it took about 22 seconds to cast each ballot through an electronic reader, and longer if the ballot was rejected.“Seems like we’re stuck in the 1990s for how slow it reads it,” Paul Schellenberg said after voting at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church in downtown Vancouver.He said collecting and filling out the ballot was “very fast,” but a long line formed as voters waited for their ballots to be electronically processed.Brian Thorn said the randomized order of the candidates made it harder to find the ones he’d chosen to vote for, which also added to the time delay.The City of Burnaby added an extra voting tabulator to its Gilmore station Saturday afternoon to ease the line, while the City of Victoria thanked voters for their patience in a tweet.last_img read more

The Latest: Spain to challenge US move on lawsuits vs Cuba

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the Trump administration’s position on Cuba (all times local):7:40 a.m.A senior official in Madrid says the Spanish government is asking the European Union to challenge a U.S. move to allow lawsuits against foreign companies operating in properties seized from Americans in post-revolution Cuba.The move, announced Tuesday, breaks with two decades of U.S. policy on the island.Spain, which has large investments in hotels and other tourism-related industries in Cuba, will ask the EU to challenge the decision in the World Trade Organization, a senior government official told The Associated Press.The official requested anonymity because she wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly. She added that Spain was committed to defending its interests on the island.Businesses from Canada, France and Great Britain among other countries also conduct business in properties nationalized after Fidel Castro took power in 1959.— By Aritz Parra___12:05 a.m.The Trump administration is preparing to change a longstanding U.S. policy on Cuba.The administration is expected to announce Wednesday that it will allow lawsuits against foreign companies doing business in properties seized from Americans after Cuba’s 1959 revolution.A law passed in 1996, the Helms-Burton Act, gives Americans the right to sue the mostly European companies that operate out of hotels, tobacco factories, distilleries and other properties that Cuba nationalized after Fidel Castro took power. The act even allows lawsuits by Cubans who became U.S. citizens years after their properties were taken.But every U.S. president since Bill Clinton has suspended the key clause to avoid trade clashes and a potential mass of lawsuits that would prevent any future settlement with Cuba over nationalized properties.The Associated Press read more

Sri Lanka against nuclear weapons

Sri Lanka also commended the joint initiative of China and Russia on the draft treaty on the Prevention of the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space, the Threat or Use of Force against Outer Space Objects (PPWT) presented in 2008, and welcomes it as a basis towards adopting an international binding instrument. The comments made by Sri Lanka come even as the United States, European Union, and other Western nations are trying to stop Iran’s suspected pursuit of nuclear weapons. “We are of the view that a transparent, sustainable and credible plan for multilateral nuclear disarmament is necessary in order that disarmament and non-proliferation could both advance in a mutually reinforcing manner,” he said.He also said that Sri Lanka supports the promotion of the use of space based technologies, for peaceful purposes.“We believe that prevention of an arms race in outer space would avert a grave danger for international peace and security as we witness the rapid spread of space launch capability and increasing offensive applications of space technologiesm” he said. Both Sri Lanka and Iran have strong diplomatic ties and Aryasinha did not directly name Iran in his speech at the UN conference. “We encourage nuclear weapon States to reduce nuclear danger through progressive multilateral nuclear disarmament beginning with the de-alerting of nuclear weapons and reducing the operational readiness of weapons systems.  We stand ready to work within the framework of the Conference on Disarmament, towards achieving this objective. We believe that it is our joint commitment and responsibility” he said.The External Affairs Ministry quoted him as further saying that whilst the international community has been active in bolstering that architecture, it is evident that this needs to be further strengthened. The Sri Lankan government has called for the elimination of nuclear weapons from national arsenals saying the continued existence of nuclear weapons and of their possible use or threat of use poses an overarching threat to humanity.Speaking at the Conference on Disarmament (CD) at the UN in Geneva, Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva Ravinatha Aryasinha said that Sri Lanka is of the view that there is an urgent need to reach an early agreement on a universal, unconditional and legally binding instrument to assure non-nuclear weapon States against the use or threat of use of nuclear weapons. read more

UN Photo/Cia Pak Prime Minister Antoni Marti Petit of the Principality of Andorra addresses the general debate of the seventy-second session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia Pak “Our goal for the United Nations must be the construction, day after day, of an efficient Organization in the service of the common interests of its Member States,” Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told the Assembly’s 72nd annual general debate.“When regional actors and the United Nations are on the same page and work together, great things can be achieved,” he said, noting that globalization has generated fears and doubts in which even the very essence of the UN is sometimes questioned.He cited the recent spate of catastrophic hurricanes and other environmental disasters as a clarion call for urgent action.“It’s no longer a question of putting off to tomorrow what we must do today,” he declared. “Doubt is no longer permissible. For numerous countries, especially the island States of the Pacific, the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean, these natural phenomena have an immediate impact for their survival.”Full statement (in French) available here Aurelia Frick, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Principality of Liechtenstein, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventy-second session. UN Photo/Cia Pak For his part, Antoni Marti Petit, Prime Minister of Andorra, describing his country as a “faithful defender of the multilateral order,” called for effective cooperation to address global challenges. No country, no matter how powerful, could handle today’s challenges alone. Meeting development goals required the recognition of the nexus between peace and development. To that end, development goals would never be met if climate change went ignored. Catastrophic climate events affected all nations, he said, noting that Andorra is prioritizing the development of renewable energy, production of electric vehicles and finding more effective ways to heat households. On other issues, he said mutual respect would lead to a more peaceful world, he assured. The link between peace, human rights and inclusive development could not be ignored. Because of that, Andorra would support the International Criminal Court’s capacity to act as a matter of course in the most serious issues without the need for Security Council intervention. He also called for limiting veto powers within the Council when dealing with cases of mass atrocities. He insisted “inclusive multilateralism” had to be the guiding principle of all Member States. Full statement available here Also addressing the high-level debate, Liechtenstein Foreign Minister Aurelia Frick called on all Member States to expand the authority of International Criminal Court set up 20 years ago to judge cases of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes to include illegal use of force. “Today we often manage and contain armed conflict rather than preventing it in the first place. We must do better. This year we have the opportunity to make a historic step forward. For the first time since the creation of the United Nations, we can give an international tribunal jurisdiction over the crime of aggression,” she said. “The most serious forms of the illegal use of force will be punishable. The tribunal in charge will be the International Criminal Court, the centrepiece of our common fight for accountability. I appeal to all of you today: Live up to the commitment we have made when signing on to the UN Charter. “Let us enforce the prohibition of the illegal use of force by making it punishable in the highest court of criminal law that we have,” she underscored. Full statement available here Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat stressed the importance of Agenda 2030, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which seek to eliminate a host of social ills, from hunger and poverty to the lack of access to education and health care. “Challenging times require us to be on time for the challenge. That time is now, sooner rather than later. Purposeful and systematic action by multi-stakeholders, at all levels and across all strata is crucial if the ensuing benefits are to be felt by the people in all corners of the world,” he said.“The UN is the prime mobilizer and anchor of international peace, security and stability [and] has a quintessential role to play, if we are to secure a peaceful, sustainable and a better world for all, he continued, adding: “We are strong believers in the overarching power of multilateralism. We do not believe the UN is simply a sum of its parts, but rather a force that grows exponentially when we think and act as one, rather than alone.” Full statement available here For his part, Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip stressed that the UN has the primary responsibility for the maintenance of peace and security.“I am confident that with his competent leadership and the joint efforts of the Member States, we will succeed in redefining the role of the United Nations and adjusting it to the requirements of the modern world,” he said.“Today, more than ever, we need a joint commitment of all UN Member States to face those challenges,” he added, citing armed conflicts in the Middle East, terrorism, poverty, the excessive accumulation of conventional weapons and the development of nuclear programmes. “An international environment marked by the threats to use force, including nuclear arms, greatly exacerbates the sense of insecurity and lack of trust,” he said, also noting that devastating natural disasters occurring with increasing frequency in a warming worldaffect hundreds of millions of people.Full statement available here San Marino’s Foreign Minister Nicola Renzi noted that the complexity of the challenges facing the UN today is unparalleled in its history. “The interconnected nature of the challenges reminds us that countries must act together to be more effective in the fight against climate change, global terrorism, poverty and to build more inclusive, safe and just societies for all,” he said. “The United Nations must adapt quickly to the new global challenges, but also to the newopportunities offered by an increasingly interconnected world, in order to be more effectivein carrying out its mandate. “Therefore, reforms are crucial to future world stability and maintenance of internationalpeace and security, and must remain at the centre of our actions. We reject any downsizingof the role of the United Nations due to the impossibility of finding a common agreementon the reforms needed to improve its functioning.” Full statement available here read more

Kyle Lowry Is The NBAs Master Of Taking The Clutch Charge

TORONTO — With just more than four and a half minutes left and the Toronto Raptors nursing a 97-94 edge over division rival Boston, budding Celtics star Jayson Tatum had a 1-on-1 matchup against Danny Green on the right wing. Green cheated left, allowing Tatum to get to his dominant hand with a potential path to the basket. But the opportunity to trim the deficit or even tie the score on that possession vanished in an instant, when Kyle Lowry, the Raptors’ All-Star guard, swiftly slid in front of Tatum, drawing a charging violation.On the left wing just over two minutes later, with Toronto leading by five, nearly the exact same scenario played out: Tatum got a step on Kawhi Leonard after a well-executed flare screen and barreled into the paint, only to meet Lowry, who’d gotten there a hair quicker. Offensive foul;1The third one Lowry had drawn in a two-minute, 20-second window if we include the illegal shove called on Marcus Morris. Raptors’ ball. The play essentially ended any hope of a Boston comeback in the Oct. 19 Toronto win.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/TATUM.mp400:0000:0000:27Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Somehow, in a league flowing with more 3-pointers than we’ve ever seen, Lowry has found a way to make momentum-shifting plays without hitting dagger jumpers. Instead, he’s taking dagger charges — stifling an opponent’s last-ditch comeback efforts. He all but sealed Wednesday’s victory by taking one against Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox with a little more than three minutes left. Three days prior, he drew one on the Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma in the final two minutes of an eventual win in Los Angeles.“It just feels like he always takes them at the right moment, when the other team has some momentum going,” point guard Delon Wright, one of Lowry’s backups, told me after the team’s Monday win in Utah. “He steps in there and gets the call, and it’s kind of defeating for the other team.”There’s no doubt that Lowry has impeccable timing on such plays, and not just in the waning minutes of close games. Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Lowry has drawn a league-high 49 charges2In the regular season and playoffs combined. — an eye-popping number for anyone, but especially for someone who earns upwards of $30 million a year and plays a position that isn’t known for welcoming physical punishment. Nonetheless, this past Sunday, he drew one on runaway freight train LeBron James, who enjoys an 8-inch, 45-pound advantage on the 6-foot Lowry.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/LOWRY1.mp400:0000:0004:35Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.“You get hit in the private area. You might get hit in the gut,” said Lowry, who also led the NBA in assists heading into Thursday’s games with 135 — a whopping 38 more than Jrue Holiday, who ranked second. “You’ve just got to be willing to take the hit and can’t be scared of the consequences. You’ve gotta say, ‘All right, cool — I’m willing to do to help my team win games.’”Not everyone is an ideal candidate to take charges. Aside from the fact that certain players are horrible at selling officials on bang-bang plays of that nature, there’s also the possibility of getting hurt, all for the sake of trying to force a single turnover.Raptors coach Nick Nurse doesn’t seem too worried when Lowry puts himself in harm’s way — largely because he’s shown an expertise in knowing how to do it.“His instincts are unbelievable. He sees that stuff coming way ahead of time and gets himself in position. That’s just being a super smart, high-IQ player,” Nurse said. “He’s pretty good at knowing how to take them. Every now and then, he takes a pretty crushing blow. But you know how it is: The good [charge-takers] kind of start to fall just before they take a hit, and hopefully don’t get hurt on those [sorts of plays]. But his instincts to play hard amaze me almost nightly.”While taking that many charges speaks to Lowry’s next-level anticipation, the teamwide strategies of the 11-1 Raptors — still incorporating two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard — are playing a role here as well. Toronto has had a help defender, the one most often in position to draw a charge, present during an opposing player’s drive to the basket 36 percent of the time, the NBA’s third-highest rate, according to Second Spectrum.When Lowry is the player serving as the help defender, the club allows just 0.86 points per direct drive — a number that would lead the league if it carried over for all team minutes. This is part of why the Raptors figure to be such a tough out, especially now with Leonard in the fold: Lowry, Green, Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka3Who, while clearly diminished from his days as a first team All-Defense selection, is still a solid defender. can all slide over and at least hinder, if not completely halt, the progress of a player trying to get to the rim.As for Lowry himself — who’s taken more charges this year than 23 entire teams — his knack for generating these types of turnovers can be traced to Villanova, where he played for Jay Wright. Villanova started a program known as the Attitude Club, a point-based recognition system that rewards players for different types of hustle plays, including diving for loose balls, tapping back an offensive rebound and, yes, drawing charges on defense.4This sounds similar to a college upbringing we’ve reported on in the past, that of perhaps the league’s most efficient charge-taker, Anthony Tolliver.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/LOWRY2.mp400:0000:0004:47Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Lowry said he took charges even during his high school days but became more committed to it during college and upon reaching the NBA, where it’s nearly impossible for him — at his size — to make the sorts of high-flying plays that can truly ignite a crowd.“I can’t normally block a shot, and I can’t energize my team with a crazy dunk,” he said. “But I can take a charge at a big moment in a game, and I think my teammates appreciate me laying myself out there. That’s my energizing play.”Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Sailor shortage means four of Navys 13 frigates have not spent a

A lack of sailors has meant four British warships have not spent a day at sea in 2018, new data have revealed.Responding to a parliamentary question, the Ministry of Defence figures show the effect on Britain’s Type 23 fleet due to ageing hulls and under manning.A National Audit Office report in April showed that the Royal Navy suffered a manpower shortage of 16 per cent in 2016/17.First commissioned in 1989, the Type 23 Frigates have a planned 18-year lifespan which has been regularly extended. As they age the frigates need more time in maintenance as systems require updating or refitting.The fleet is due to be replaced by eight Type 26 ships, the first of which is currently under construction in Scotland.  Increasing naval deployments from six to nine months due to the lack of sailors has meant that ships are alongside for greater periods before the tour, to allow service personnel time with their families. In turn this means a longer maintenance period is required at the end. The ships are also in port for about two weeks in the middle of a deployment for crew leave.   Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Post-deployment each frigate will revert to a very low readiness state. The Daily Telegraph understands that a number of training exercises in UK waters now happen from Monday to Friday, allowing servicemen and women to go home at weekends and shortening the overall time ships spend at sea.A government review of defence in 2010 saw 5,000 naval servicemen and women made redundant, and the UK’s overall defence budget reduced by 7.7 per cent over four years.New data show that the UK’s thirteen frigates have spent a total of 817 days at sea in the period to Oct 1. Between 2010 and 2014, the ships were at sea for at least 1500 days each year.HMS Argyll and HMS Sutherland have spent the longest at sea this year, with 117 and 154 days respectively.Admiral Lord West of Spithead, a former Labour security minister, told The Daily Telegraph that funding cuts were making recruitment and retention of staff more difficult for the Navy.“There’s no doubt that the hollowing out of the military is causing a lot of problems,” he said.“People aren’t doing the things they thought would happen when they joined up, and they’re saying ‘to hell with this’ and they’re going to go.”“We need all these ships operating. There are jobs for them to do around the world, and when they’re doing those jobs it helps stabilise things and helps keep peace”. HMS Portland is seen on the Atlantic Ocean, near Ascension Island. MoD data have shown that the Frigate is one of four in Royal Navy service that have spent no days at sea in 2018.Credit:Reuters HMS Portland is seen on the Atlantic Ocean, near Ascension Island. MoD data have shown that the Frigate is one of four in Royal Navy service that have spent no days at sea in 2018. A Royal Navy spokesman said: “Type 23 frigates are true workhorses  across the globe, as shown by current operations with HMS Monmouth in the USA and HMS Argyll in the Far East.” Each costing about £130 million, the Type 23 frigates are all named after British Dukes and are known as ‘Duke Class’. Based in Portsmouth and Devonport the primary role of the ships is anti-submarine warfare, through the use of a towed array sonar which trails behind the ship, electronically listening for emissions from submarines.The data show that since 2010 the entire Type 23 fleet has spent a total of 32.5 years at sea. Assuming a crew of 185 sailors this equates to roughly 2.2 million man-days. On average that means each frigate has spent around 28.5 per cent of its time at sea annually. This figure will vary widely depending on the role of the vessel at the time and serviceability state.However, ‘days at sea’ can be an unhelpful metric when assessing the value to the taxpayer. Many tasks require a serviceable ship to be in port. For example, the Fleet Ready Escort role requires a ship to be available for immediate tasking, such as for escorting Russian warships through the Channel.Ships on deployment will also spend many days in port for maintenance, replenishment or to host visitors and foreign VIPs. Many UK defence sales come from such engagements. read more

Boy slips through Heathrow security to board British Airways flight to Los

The lapse also raises concerns over the effectiveness of security checks at Britain’s busiest airport, although a spokesman for British Airways insisted the boy had been through the same controls as all other passengers.The spokesman said: “We have apologised to our customers for the delay to their flight after an issue during boarding.  “The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our top priority and everyone who had boarded the aircraft had been subject to security checks. “We conducted additional precautionary screening as soon as this issue came to light and we are assisting the police with their enquiries.”Rachel Richardson, who was heading to Los Angeles on a business trip, described chaotic scenes as airline staff tried to deal with the situation.She said: “The boy would not speak to the cabin crew and they were asking if anybody spoke Dutch. He would not help them understand where his bags were so the whole aircraft had to be cleared which meant we were almost more than four hours delayed taking off. It was very frustrating.”A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “A 12-year-old boy boarded a BA flight from Heathrow to Los Angeles at around 17:15hrs on 14 July.   Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Detectives were working to establish where the boy was originally from and how he had managed to pass through strict security cordons, without being spotted.One theory is that he was a transit passenger who had arrived at Heathrow with a ticket to an onward destination, but had then attempted to see if he how far he could get with our being challenged as part of an elaborate dare. The mystery youngster, who is thought to be Dutch, was not travelling with his parents, and refused to cooperate with cabin crew when he was challengedCredit:AP Photo/Alastair Grant BA check in desks Police at Heathrow Airport are investigating how a 12-year-old boy slipped through security and managed to board a British Airways flight to Los Angeles without a ticket or boarding pass.The unaccompanied child, who had no travel documents, mingled with passengers getting on the flight and was only spotted when cabin crew asked to see his boarding pass in order to direct him to his seat.The mystery youngster, who is thought to be Dutch, was not travelling with his parents, and refused to cooperate with cabin crew when he was challenged.Fellow passengers said he refused to leave the aircraft and was eventually removed by police officers who boarded to assist aircrew.As a result of the security lapse, the aircraft had to be cleared and all the passengers were forced to undergo a second security check, delaying the flight by more than four hours. “He was identified by cabin crew during pre-flight check. He did not have a ticket or any travel documents.  “The boy was an unaccompanied minor. He is not a UK national. As a security precaution, passenger de-planed following a discussion between police and the captain.  “The child is believed to have arrived at Heathrow as a transit passenger.”A Heathrow spokesperson said:“We are working with our police colleagues and British Airways to understand how an unauthorised passenger boarded the incorrect aircraft. The individual did not represent a security risk and, purely as a precaution, the aircraft in question was re-screened and has since departed. We apologise for the disruption and will continue working closely with the authorities and our airline partners to keep the airport safe.” read more
