Waite focuses on team rotation

first_imgArnett Gardens coach Jerome Waite said the aim is to keep his players fresh in a rotation system in order to repeat their feat of winning the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) and Caribbean Football Union (CFU) title.The RSPL champions are atop in this season’s national championship on 46 points, one ahead of Montego Bay United (45).Waite intends to stay on top to first win the trophy and incentive for the team that ends the preliminary stage with the most points.Waite, who guided Arnett to three of the club’s national titles, is also looking at the bigger picture: to win the CFU championship and move to the CONCACAF stage. The CFU championship is set to kick off next month.”We want to win the national title again. It is the first time for this season that we are leading on points. We are in the lead, so I’m pretty much pleased at this point,” Waite told The Gleaner.With Arnett having scored 36 goals in 24 RSPL games this season, Waite said that the team should have scored more. However, he is pleased with the defensive system as the team has conceded 20 goals.MORE GOALS WANTED”We should have scored more goals but, defensively, we are doing well as a team,” said the coach, who guided Arnett to back-to-back titles from 2000 to 2002.”Looking back at last year, despite winning the title, I was concerned about the fact that we let in too many goals, so it is a massive improvement in that area,” he added.”We will continue to take the games step by step. My aim is to keep the team healthy and injury-free. The rotation of players is necessary. It is all about man-management. It is my duty, and I’m always thinking about the long term,” Waite reasoned.”We are also preparing for the CFU tournament in the Dominican Republic early next month. We will leave for that tournament by month end,” he said.Arnett Gardens and last season’s runners-up, Montego Bay United, will participate in the CFU championship. Arnett will play in Group Four alongside AtlÈtico Pantoja of The Dominican Republic, America des Cayes of Haiti, and Notch of Suriname in Santo Domingo.last_img read more

Ronaldo presents happier face as Real celebrate European triumph

first_img0Shares0000As Cristiano Ronaldo milked every last drop of his moment on the microphone at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night, it was hard to imagine this was a player about to leave Real Madrid © AFP / BENJAMIN CREMELMADRID, Spain, May 28 – As Cristiano Ronaldo milked every last drop of his moment on the microphone at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night, it was hard to imagine this was a player about to leave Real Madrid.Real’s players were introduced one-by-one onto the podium and when Ronaldo’s moment came, a gap left after “Cristiano” for the delirious fans to fill, he predictably made the most of it. A Portugal flag draped over his shoulders, Ronaldo pirouetted before counting out on his fingers to five, the number of Champions League titles he now owns.He pulled out the badge on his shirt and kissed it, twice, before blowing a few more kisses to the crowd. By now they were chanting “Cristiano” and some of the Real players were joining in.Even when Marcelo, the next one out, emerged, the grinning Ronaldo strutted back down the walkway to welcome him with the pair’s familiar celebratory dance.This Ronaldo was almost unrecognisable from the one that had, less than 24 hours before, been prickly and restless, as he insisted he could leave Real, despite them just beating Liverpool to mark a third consecutive European triumph.Even amid wrangling contract negotiations, a frosty relationship with president Florentino Perez, a perceived lack of support in his row with Spanish tax authorities and perhaps even jealousy over Real´s courting of Neymar, his timing was inexplicably bad.Zinedine Zidane had summed up the mood. “I’m not thinking about that now,” he said.Microphone in hand, however, Ronaldo was back at the centre of things on Sunday and this time his message was different.“What can I say?” he said over the supporters’ cheers. “You have given us so much love in every single match. It’s an honour to play for the biggest club in the world, that’s the truth, it’s an honour.”As the fans roared, Real’s players bounced around Ronaldo, chanting “Cristiano, quedate”, “Cristiano, stay”, and soon the whole stadium was singing too.When Ronaldo resumed, the big screen briefly catching a stoney-faced Gareth Bale next to a beaming Casemiro, he said: “Thank you, this is very important to me. I am so happy with your passion, the passion of the players and coaches.“What I like most is winning. So for one last time, one, two three – Hala Madrid!”Earlier, in the Plaza de Cibeles, he had signed off a more modest speech with: “Thank you guys and see you next year.”At euphoric events like these, there must always be a pull to draw the biggest cheer, but Ronaldo’s behaviour at least suggests Real could satisfy the 33-year-old if they want to.He reportedly seeks a new deal in line with Lionel Messi’s at Barcelona and Neymar’s at PSG.But Perez was not impressed by Ronaldo’s posturing on Saturday. “We hear the same every summer,” Perez said. “And then nothing happens.”In 2012, Ronaldo said he was “sad” and last year, Portugese newspaper A Bola claimed the forward wanted to leave, unhappy with the club not backing him in the face of tax investigators.Perez and Ronaldo need each other, but neither will want to be seen to have lost the argument. At the very least, Real’s celebrations showed nothing has been decided yet.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

I’m not like that,” said the 33-year-old ex-captain. “I’m a fan now. I want England to do well.“I wouldn’t say I regret never winning a trophy with England.“I have given everything when playing for England and I’ve tried to make us successful.

Canceled game plays havoc on Tri-Valley League

WESTLAKE VILLAGE – High school football championships are supposed to be decided on grass fields by enthused teenagers, not middle-aged administrators in closed-door meetings. Depending on how the Tri-Valley League’s bylaws are interpreted, its league title could be decided amid conditions in which size, speed and athleticism don’t matter at all. Oak Park coaches rejected several Oaks Christian proposals for a possible makeup date, citing observance of the Jewish high holidays and safety concerns regarding playing three games in a nine-day period. Southern Section officials confirmed that the proposal met the state’s high school sports official governing body rules, which state that no more than two games can be played within an eight-day period. “We felt it was not safe to try to play three games in nine days,” Oak Park co-coach Brian Crum said. “We really would have liked to the play the game, it just came down to a situation that we couldn’t work out.” Oaks Christian athletic director Jan Hethcock said his interpretation of the league’s bylaws was that if the teams didn’t make up the game, neither would be eligible for a league championship – even if both win their five remaining league games. Hethcock said he’s conferred with coaches within and outside the Tri-Valley League, and all have shared his interpretation of the bylaws. center_img That scenario is possible after the wildfire-forced cancellation of Friday’s game between two-time Southern Section Div. XI champion Oaks Christian of Westlake Village (3-0) and arch-rival Oak Park (2-1), the two-time Div. XI finalists. Friday’s game would have been the fifth meeting between the teams since Oak Park defeated Oaks Christian in Week 10 of the 2003 season. The Lions have since won 17 consecutive games. last_img read more
