Costa sees red as Everton blank Chelsea

first_imgLONDON (AP):Diego Costa plunged Chelsea into fresh controversy in their nightmare season yesterday by seeing red as Everton ended the London team’s last hope of a title in the FA Cup.Chelsea had just been humiliated by former striker Romelu Lukaku, scoring twice in five minutes, including a breathtaking solo goal, when Costa was sent off in the 84th minute of Everton’s 2-0 win in the quarter-finals.The fiery striker thrust his head at Gareth Barry, then sunk his teeth towards the Everton midfielder’s neck in a biting motion, earning a second yellow card. There was no immediate reaction from Barry to suggest he had been bitten, but Costa was dismissed for the first time in two seasons at Chelsea.eliminatedEverton also ended with 10 men after Barry himself was shown a second yellow card three minutes later for catching Cesc Fabregas.The FA Cup exit followed Chelsea being eliminated from the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.Any hopes of defending the Premier League trophy were extinguished long ago, with Chelsea currently 10th and highly likely to miss out on European football next season.Manchester City doesn’t look like they will be succeeding Chelsea as Premier League champions after being held 0-0 at Norwich to stay fourth, nine points behind surprise leaders Leicester.The late dismissals at Goodison Park overshadowed Lukaku’s superb goals, which left Chelsea to rue, offloading the Belgium striker in 2014, having spent most of his career on loan away from Stamford Bridge.Lukaku’s first goal came in the 77th minute after Ross Barkley slipped the ball through to him on the leftwing. Lukaku slalomed past two players before cutting inside past defenders Cesar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic and striking low past compatriot Thibaut Courtois.The Belgium goalkeeper was beaten again in the 82nd, when Lukaku put the ball through his legs.So, unlike in 2009, Guus Hiddink will not be ending this interim spell as Chelsea manager by lifting the FA Cup.last_img read more

Football’s 18 biggest LOCAL derbies ranked by passion and ferocity

first_img 18 18. Aris Saloniki v PAOK Saloniki: Famous for lots of fire and general chaos – click the right arrow above to see the biggest LOCAL rivalries – With Celtic and Rangers set to do battle again, talkSPORT looks at the biggest LOCAL derbies, beginning in northern Greece. Aris, formed in 1914 were the local’s side, with PAOK coming in 1926 born thanks to Greek refugees who were expelled from Istanbul. In recent years, PAOK have been the bigger team, with Aris in the second tier, however, they have three league titles to their rivals’ two. 18 1. Boca Juniors v River Plate: Famous for Atmosphere, intensity, resurgence – After a season in the lower leagues, River Plate returned to win the top tier in 2014, which was great news for River, but terrible news for the Buenos Aires police force. “Derby day in Buenos Aires makes the Old Firm game look like a primary school kick-about,” explains Scottish journalist Gavin Hamilton. With 70 per cent of the country said to have an allegiance one way or the other, you can see why. 8. Celtic v Rangers: Famous for Sectarianism, frequency (formerly) – World famous, ferocious, historic – but a match that has been lacking in frequency lately. Yet Rangers’ meltdown isn’t the only reason for an Old Firm being ‘just’ 13th. This was a derby fairly recently graced by Brian Laudrup, Paul Gascoigne and Henrik Larsson. In recent years, though, Bianca Gascoigne could get a game for either side. The fixture has been contested just once since Rangers were forced to play in Scottish football’s fourth tier in 2012, but will be eagerly anticipated ahead of the Gers’ playing in the Premiership from next season. 18 16. Nacional v Penarol: Famous for Success, social divides – The ‘Uruguayan Clasico’ is South America’s oldest derby played between these two Montevideo teams. Originally the Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, Penarol was the team of the European immigrants, while Nacional formed in 1899 as a team for native Uruguayans. The rivalry burns as fiercely today, even if its profile remains low compared to, say, Argentine cousin Boca-River. 18 18 2. Fenerbahce v Galatasaray: Famous for Graeme’s flagpole – In 2014, Galatasaray fans chose to recreate – via a gigantic stadium flag – the moment in 1996 when their then boss/psychopath Graeme Souness ran on to the Fenerbahce pitch and planted a Galatasaray flag in the middle. Somehow, that insult delighted one half of Istanbul more even than the preceding victory. A rivalry fuelled by petty hatred and chaos: we love it. 14. Everton v Liverpool: Famous for Fire and friendliness – England’s oldest top-flight derby, which are fiery games full of red cards and goals. Loud and – at times – mutually respectful fans (witness the Hillsborough solidarity). To some, it may not be the most important derby in the north-west, but there is still plenty of bite in the Merseyside fixture. 15. West Ham v Millwall: Famous for their long-standing hatred and a heavy police presence – Millwall, formed of factory workers at JT Morton in the Isle of Dogs in 1885 and West Ham, of men at shipbuilding firm, Thames Ironworks 10 years later began playing each other in games that got pretty heated and the rivalry was born. The trade union strike in 1926 saw the dockers walk out, but it was allegedly not observed by those on the Millwall side – they had moved to south London by this time – and bitterness has grown since. Games involving the two are usually heavily policed, but meetings are infrequent with the Hammers a Premier League team and Millwall two divisions below in League One. 13. Manchester United v Manchester City: Famous for Noisy neighbours, Denis Law – A friendly camaraderie before the Second World War, then it turned ugly in the 1970s. It has been amped up since the blue half of Manchester won the Abu Dhabi lottery and notable moments from recent years include City’s 6-1 embarrassment of United at Old Trafford, Michael Owen scoring a stoppage time winner in a 4-3 classic, and Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick in 2011. 18 9. Lazio v Roma: Famous for flares and fascists – It’s slightly strange that Roma are associated with left-wing politics in the Derby della Capitale: they were founded when Mussolini merged three clubs in an attempt to create a counterpoint to the dominance of Juventus and the Milans. Lazio refused to join. Both sets of Ultras are a violent lot. Note 2004, and a riot that led to 13 arrests and 170 injured police. 18 18 18 11. Benfica v Sporting Lisbon: Famous for closeness – These Lisbon neighbours are too close for comfort, with just 3km separating the grounds. The problem for the Sportinguistas is that their dominance is a distant memory, so the current rivalry boils down to Benfica rubbing their success in their rivals’ faces every time they visit the Estadio Jose Alvalade – which their fans have dubbed ‘the toilet’ thanks to its tiled facade. When Sporting won a first Portuguese Cup for seven years in 2015, Benfica won successive league crowns. 7. Al Ahly v Zamalek: Famous for Violence on and off pitch – It is no mean feat to be known as the most fearsome derby in the league when you consider the Egyptian Premier League has had to cancel seasons in recent years because of political unrest and fan violence. This is a fixture that has had to be abandoned four times and is a game dividing Cairo down the middle between the red of Al Ahly and white of Zamalek, and even sees a foreign referee flown in because all the Egyptian officials are said to have a leaning towards one of the clubs. 10. AC Milan v Inter: Famous for See-sawing fortunes – Size: tick. Passion: tick. Global appeal: tick. Inter held sway in the distant past, while the Rossoneri ruled the roost in the 80s and 90s. The games themselves are goose-bump inducing, with flares, flags and foul language. Let down by a lack of games of trophy-deciding importance. 18 18 17. CSKA Moscow v Spartak Moscow: Famous for Political undertones – Spartak are the people’s club. CSKA were the team of the Soviet Army, count the Russian Ministry of Defence as a shareholder and were once owned by Roman Abramovich. A case of the haves and the have-nots, then, but Spartak’s best days are behind them. That means the feeling of injustice remains, but the rivalry has suffered. 18 6. Olympiakos v Panathinaikos: Famous for Ultraviolence – The derby of Athens’ eternal enemies is getting increasingly violent. In 2012 it was abandoned after petrol bombs were set off in the stands. In 2014, Panathinaikos boss Giannis Anastasiou was floored by an object thrown from the crowd and thousands of police were deployed in the following match to try to prevent trouble, but Anastasiou still got himself sent off. 18 3. Partizan Belgrade v Red Star Belgrade: Famous for violence disguised as passion – Both clubs were formed in the aftermath of World War II, with Partizan representing the army and Red Star the police. The latter’s European Cup success sets them apart, but to observers outside Serbia, football in the Eternal derby is secondary, with violence coming to define the fixture. In 2015 the game was delayed because of crowd trouble, which saw 35 police officers injured. 12. Arsenal v Tottenham: Famous for Goalfests – Emmanuel Adebayor and Sol Campbell’s respective departures played a part, but the resurgence of Tottenham is the major factor behind reigniting an age-old rivalry that previously saw Arsenal as much the better side. The Gunners used to be able to celebrate St Totteringham’s Day amid a lack of actual trophies – the day when Spurs can no longer mathematically finish above them – but even that appears to be dead. The season is not over, of course… 18 4. Borussia Dortmund v Schalke: Famous for being ‘Mother of all derbies’ – Big on the terrace and big on the pitch. You just have to look at Dortmund players’ celebrations after beating Schalke last year to see what it means to everyone connected to the club, who are separated from their rivals by 20 miles on the Ruhr. Schalke are equally passionate as you can see by the thousands of ultras who turned up to watch training during in the lead up to the November derby loaded with flares and songs. 5. Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid: Famous for Underdogs finally biting back – Nine points. That’s what Atletico Madrid were worth to their famous neighbours each season: the six that Real Madrid would take from Atletico, plus the three that Atletico took from Barcelona. Hidden in the giant shadow of El Clasico, the Madrid derby was a joke. Except it wasn’t funny, because everyone knew the punchline. Real won. Until recently. A cathartic victory in the 2013 Copa del Rey final (Atletico’s first win over Real since 1999) gave Atletico a taste for it. They won on their next trip to the Bernabeu, then claimed La Liga but the big, blanco elephant in the room is that Atletico came up agonisingly short against Real in the Champions League final in 2014. At least now it’s no longer a mismatch. 18 18 It’s Celtic v Rangers on Sunday, as the Glasgow rivals go head-to-head at Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup semi-final.The fixture has been contested just once since Rangers were forced to play in Scottish football’s fourth tier in 2012, but will be eagerly anticipated ahead of the Gers’ playing in the Premiership from next season.Here, talkSPORT looks at other fantastic rivalries, focusing solely on local rivalries – in each case, we asked, who are this club’s local rivals, hence in the case of Liverpool we selected Everton, not Manchester United, or for Real Madrid it was Atletico, not Barcelona.Count down the top 18, in the slideshow above. 18 18last_img read more


first_imgDonegal had the fifth highest drink-driving detection rate in the country last year.A total of 59 drivers per 1,000 were caught in Donegal in 2014.However, Donegal had the lowest rate of detections for drugs is in Donegal, at 0.27 per 1,000 motorists. The Irish Independent reports the highest rate of detections for drink-driving is in Monaghan, where 98 drivers per 1,000 have been caught, which is almost twice the national average.It is followed by Cavan, where 84 per 1,000 motorists have been detected; Louth (67 per 1,000), Westmeath (66 per 1,000) and Donegal (59 per 1,000).The lowest rate is in Roscommon, where 32 per 1,000 drivers have been caught.In terms of overall numbers, most detections have been made in Blanchardstown in Dublin, with 3,013 in the period analysed. Stations in Galway, Louth, Limerick, Waterford, Kerry, Kilkenny and Kildare also feature in the 10 busiest. For drugs, some 3,915 motorists have been recorded as being under the influence – or 1.5 per 1,000 population.But the detection rate is highest in Offaly, where 3.6 motorists per 1,000 drivers are recorded. It is followed by Westmeath (3.2), Tipperary (2.7), Laois (2.6) and Limerick (2.6).The highest number of detections for drugs is in Ballyfermot in Dublin, with 104. Stations in Limerick, Westmeath and Offaly also feature in the top 10 busiest.The figures outline the extent of the dangers facing law-abiding motorists on the roads, but also the difficulty for gardai in policing some 100,000kms of network.Gardai have carried out 365,000 roadside breath tests so far this year, and mounted 65,000 checkpoints. More than 7,100 motorists have been detected driving while intoxicated. But the problem is believed to be worse than the official figures indicate, as many drivers are never caught.Research from the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and HSE suggests that alcohol plays a part in 37pc of fatal crashes, with drugs believed to be a factor in as many as 10pc.Also, a review of road traffic deaths in Kildare involving drivers of cars, vans and motorcycles between 1998 and 2009 shows that one in 10 drivers (9.8pc) killed had a positive toxicology result for drugs.The analysis was carried out by the Medical Bureau of Road Safety, which analyses blood and urine samples taken from motorists suspected of driving under the influence. The lack of transport in many rural areas is cited as a factor in higher drink and drug driving rates. Spokesman with Irish Rural Link, James Claffey, said local hackney licences should be issued to help provide transport services, along with additional public buses and incentives for publicans who want to invest in transport.“There simply isn’t the transport there in terms of taxis. If you’re planning on going out, you have to plan days in advance to get home,” he said.“We would look for more initiatives like the local hackney licence which gives reduced rates to local people trying to start up, and for more support.“The reason for the statistics is the lack of public transport. There is demand for buses home from pubs, and there probably should be some initiative there to help road safety.“It’s at a level now where drink driving is not tolerated, as it shouldn’t be, but people are taking a risk and that just cannot continue.”DONEGAL HAS FIFTH HIGHEST NUMBER OF DRINK-DRIVERS IN COUNTRY was last modified: December 23rd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegaldrink drivinglast_img read more

first_imgCobh Ramblers 0 Finn Harps 4  The long journey home on the coach from Cobh will be a lot easier for Finn Harps tonight after they booked a place in the FAI quarter finals in style.The Donegal outfit might have thought they left the game behind them in Ballybofey last Friday night when Cobh scored a late, late goal to earn a replay.Despite starting the brighter tonight, Cobh lost concentration and were punished with two first half goals from Kevin McHugh and recent signing Lee Toland. The goals left Cobh chasing their tails and frustrated they saw two players dismissed to leave Harps to coast home eventually winning 4-0.Their reward is now a home-draw against Drogheda Utd at Finn Park on September 13th.Cobh used their home advantage to the full at St Coleman’s Park early on tonight.Both David O’Neill and lively winger Alan O’Flynn could have been the Cork side in front in the opening half hour. But a rash challenge from Craig Burns on Kevin McHugh inside the area on 34 minutes gifted Harps a chance to press ahead.The Harps captain took responsibility for the spot kick and it’s not often the Killea man misses from here.If the visitors were buoyed by their lead, they were already planning their gameplan against Drogheda after Lee Toland made it 2-0 four minutes later form a free-kick.Brendan Frahill handled on the edge of his own area and Toland drilled the ball low into the bottom corner of the Cobh net.Harps bosses the rest of the half and emerged for the second half determined to hold onto their two goal cushion. The first incident of note in the 62nd minute could have resulted in another Harps goal when James Doherty drilled the ball straight at Cobh ‘keeper Shane Hallahan.Things took a turn for the worst for Cobh when Brendan Frahill received a second yellow card for a rash challenge which reduced the home side to ten men.Ramblers threw caution to the wind leaving just three at the back as the searched for a goal to get them back into the tie.But Cobh were seeing red once again and their exit from the competition when Roy Kenny was given a straight red after a bad tackle on James Doherty. Harps were cruising and substitute Paul McVeigh then got in on the goalscoring act.McVeigh latched onto a long kick-out form Ciaran Gallagher to find himself one-on-one with Hallahan whom he beat.Michael Funston, who has been having a great season for Harps, rounded off the evening by slotting home to make it 4-0 in the 90th minute after a good through ball from Josh Mailey.The league play-offs may be out of reach but Harps can still dream about the cup!HARPS RAMBLE TO CUP QUARTER FINAL WITH STYLISH DISPLAY was last modified: August 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cobh Ramblersfai cupfinn harpslast_img read more


first_imgArdara Sunset by Brian CampbellONE of the world’s leading tourist guide websites has just given one County Donegal town a huge lift – naming it among Ireland’s seven prettiest towns.Frommer’s website is used by millions of people every day – many from the United States.And in a feature on Ireland’s prettiest towns, Ardara was included. The article – with a picture taken from distance – says: “On the southwest coast of County Donegal, the tiny town of Ardara (seen here in the distance) looks as if it were carved out of a solid block of granite.“Its streets undulate up and down the rocky hills and are lined with little boutiques and charming arts shops, many selling clothes made of the famed Donegal wool. You can wander its entirety in a few minutes. It’s a bite-sized place.”Read more: http://www.frommers.com/slideshows/847940-ireland-s-7-prettiest-towns#slide848433#ixzz3080tv8RT  GLOBAL TRAVEL WEBSITE PUTS ARDARA IN 7TH HEAVEN! was last modified: April 27th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ArdaraFrommer’sprettiest townlast_img read more
