But that doesn’t bother Roach.“He’s a counter-puncher and doesn’t come to us much, he’s the type of guy that sucks you in,” said Roach. “But we’ve dealt with that before, I mean he’s not our favorite type of fighter.”But what keeps Roach’s hope afloat was the fact that Pacquiao himself told him he’s going for a knockout.“He told me he’s gonna knock this guy out, he’s never said that to me in my life. So I’m happy where’s his head right now. If a knockout comes it’s good but I’m happy that he wants a knockout because that means he’s got his killer instinct back,” he added.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “You know that there’s a reason why Floyd went on TV the other night (during an NBA Filipino Heritage game that honored Pacquiao), and it’s to show the world that he’s still there,” said Roach.Mayweather also bumped into Pacquiao last year in Tokyo festival where the undefeated American announced his desire for a rematch.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“And I think that part of the reason, I think the winner of this fight (Pacquiao against Adrien Broner) has the chance of getting him (Mayweather),” said Roach. “I hope so yes, because that’s the one fight I would like to have back. I know we can do better.”The first fight, which reportedly earned $600 million, was a big disappointment and ended with the flashy American winning via unanimous decision over the Filipino icon who turned out to be nursing an injured shoulder. Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title If the punches land on fight night, said Roach, he expects a knockout triumph that has not happened under his watch since 2009 against Miguel Cotto.And with Pacquiao’s old buddy Buboy Fernandez at the helm, Pacquiao tasted a KO win once again when he stopped Lucas Matthyse in the seventh last July in Kuala Lumpur.But the scenario is clear on Roach’s mind come fight night: A stoppage in the later rounds.He added: “I don’t want the referee coming to the rescue (of Broner), I want it him laid out.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Younghusbands’ dilemma MOST READlast_img read more

Cockhill go eight clear in USL with away win at Harps

first_imgCOCKHILL CELTIC opened up an eight-point gap at the top of the Ulster Senior League after a come-from-behind win at Finn Harps Reserves.Finn Harps Reserves 1-5 Cockhill CelticA young Harps side started this game brightly and went ahead on 9 minutes when a great through ball from Alex Carolan put BJ Banda through and he finished low past Harry Doherty in the Cockhill goal. Cockhill came back into the game as a free kick from Gerry Gill was met at the front post by Harps first team coach William O’Connor to head past Jamie Bell.Cockhill had further chances through McLaughlin, Friel and Moran just before Luke Nelis should have put Harps in the lead as on the stroke of half time he got on the end of Carolan’s excellent delivery but the ball just went past the post from 5 yards out.Cockhill came out firing at the start of the second half as a foul on Moran resulted in Friel finishing the penalty to put them ahead in the game.A third followed a few minutes later as a cross from Gerry Gill was met by the on rushing Jimmy Bradley to make it three. Harps came back into the game and Aaron McCready had a shot cleared off the line and Ryan Finn had a shot saved by Doherty to keep Cockhill two ahead.The game was over as a contest as a delightful backheel from Moran put Bradley through and he grabbed his second slotting past Bell in the Harps goal.Bradley was then involved in the fifth as he burst through the Harps defence and squared it for Moran to tap home. Finn Harps Reserves: Jamie Bell, Aaron McCready, Daragh Ellison, Paul Ferry, Shane Blaney, Kealan McDermott, Alex Carolan, Gareth Doherty, BJ Banda, Declan Sharkey, Luke Nelis.

Man United ‘interested’ in teenage striker, club director confirms

first_imgAnd naturally it is with his father’s former clubs where Haaland junior’s loyalties lie – from a fan’s point of view anyway.Speaking in February 2017, Haaland, born shortly after his dad left Elland Road for Nottingham Forest in 2000, admitted his dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds. Roy Keane shouts at an injured Alf-Inge Haaland after the United captain’s tackle on him in 2001 3 There is definite interest from Manchester United in Erling Braut Haaland.That’s according Molde director Øystein Neerland, who said the club have sent scouts to watch their talented 17-year-old. 3center_img 3 Haaland recently scored four goals in 20 minutes for the Norwegian club, who are managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, against league rivals Brann in a 4-0 win and it was reported United had someone there to see it.“There are a lot of interested clubs, including Manchester United,” Neerland told TV2 in Norway.“I know that there have been representatives from them at Aker Stadium on several occasions this season, but I can neither confirm nor deny whether they were in Bergen (where Haaland scored four times).If the surname sounds familiar it is because he is the son of Alf-Inge Haaland, who played for Leeds and Man City, two of Man United’s biggest rivals, and just so happens to have had a long running feud with former Old Trafford skipper Roy Keane. “I want to be the best possible,” he told Aftenposten.“The dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds.“In addition, the goal is to become a better player than my dad was. I hope to get more caps than he did.”last_img read more

Pochettino believes drink-drive shame helped create Lloris’ thigh injury

first_imgThe Spurs and France skipper admitted to being more than twice the drink-drive limit when police stopped his car as he drove home from a night out with international team-mates Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny.The 31-year-old played for Spurs in their next match after his arrest – a 3-0 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 27.However, he has yet to feature for the club since, missing their Premier League defeats against Watford and Liverpool as well as their Champions League loss at Inter Milan on Tuesday.And he is not expected to feature for their Premier League trip to Brighton this week – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT from 17:30 on Saturday. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino believes Hugo Lloris’ thigh injury was caused by the stress of his drink-drive conviction.Goalkeeper Lloris was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months by a court earlier this month.

Pochettino insists his captain is full or remorse for the incident But Pochettino refused to confirm this, saying: “That is private. I think the punishment came from the court and public judgement is massive punishment. All that happened inside, I think we want to keep it inside, that’s much better.”Spurs are in bad form and go into the Brighton game having lost three matches in a row for the first time since Pochettino took charge in May 2014.On his team’s recent performances, Pochettino said: “No, I understand that football when you lose many, many, many things are put forward. It’s normal to find a reason why when you lose.“After four years, I know that the most important thing is we are so flexible and we try to provide the best for each player to feel great, with a lot of energy and have very good performance on the pitch. 3center_img targets “But of course I accept that question (are the players tired?).

In football something happen, the situation I am going to give my best until the end. I am going to stick with the club, I am not going to criticise the club.“All the decisions are our decisions and of course always with the club until the end, maybe still here in five years or maybe in one week we are not here but always talking well about the club and helping them to achieve all they want.” 3 REVEALED no dice Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?

Deja vu as another late point sees Donegal fall to defeat in Letterkenny

first_imgFor the second week in a row, Donegal were pipped at the post as Sean Armstrong’s late point gave Galway a win in O’Donnell Park.Donegal 0-14 Galway 1-12In front of 5,052 on a crisp afternoon, veteran Armstrong was summonsed from the bench to kick the match-winning score. A minute from the end of normal time, Armstrong found a chink of light to snatch the win and make it two wins from two for the Tribesmen, who lit the fuse with a first-half goal by Eamonn Brannigan.It’s now just two wins in 11 League games at O’Donnell Park for Donegal since senior inter-county football made its return to the venue in 2007.And they were out of luck here on a day when Galway showed the greater nous at the vital times.Donegal briefly led when the inspirational Patrick McBrearty – who boomed over nine points for Declan Bonner’s team – arched over in the 42nd minute, but it was short-lived as Galway soon regained a foothold. The teams were level three times in the last 20 minutes before, finally, the experienced Armstrong, only just on as a substitute, notched up the match-winner.Donegal were pipped at the post last Sunday in Killarney, when a brace of late points by Kerry left them empty handed and with Dublin at Croke Park next on their agenda, life doesn’t get any easier for a new-look Tir Chonaill.The game’s big score came in the 15th minute when Brannigan struck gold.Declan Kyne made the play. The corner-back was out of his comfort zone as he strode into Donegal territory, but his patience and precision were key. Kyne waited for the right moment before off-loading to Eamonn Brannigan.Donegal’s rearguard parted and Brannigan cruised into the space before slotting past Peter Boyle. During the week, Declan Bonner talked of his project and outlined just how Donegal were in a period of transition.The Donegal boss noted that they would not be the finished article over the course of the Allianz League. “It might take two or three years,” he cautioned.Particularly in the absence of Michael Murphy, who will be sidelined for most of the League campaign, McBrearty’s presence will be vital.The Kilcar man kicked ten points last weekend in Killarney and had six on the board here by the time Padraig Hughes, the referee, blew for half-time. Kyne’s goal gave Galway a command of things after a tit-for-tat opening that saw a trio of McBrearty points keep Donegal on level terms.Galway had two points in the first 90 seconds through Damien Comer and Paul Conroy and Brannigan’s goal gave them breathing space.McBrearty, though, was a one-man band at the other end and his sixth brought Donegal within a goal after a Shane Walsh brace at the other end. Galway punished a slack kick-out from Donegal for his second point in a matter of seconds, which threatened to derail Donegal.After an energy-sapping and agonising loss to Kerry a week ago, Donegal showed three changes to with Boyle, Stephen McBrearty and Darach O’Connor coming into the starting XV.Stephen McBrearty and Paul Brennan kicked points late in the half and it was delicately poised as the refreshments loomed, with Galway 1-7 to 0-8 in front.Boyle’s reflexes prevented a second goal, albeit at the expense of a point, when he brilliantly turned over from a batted Comer effort after a move involving Patrick Sweeney and Johnny Heaney.That came in between a pair of points from the McBrearty brothers, before Patrick’s eighth of the afternoon brought Donegal level for the first time since the opening quarter.Ryan McHugh, with a magnificent curling effort, and a fisted point by sub Ciaran McGinley twice had Donegal on level terms, but Armstrong conjured up the winner, just when Donegal were beginning to look like good value for, at least, a share of the spoils.Donegal: Peter Boyle; Stephen McMenamin, Caolan Ward, Eoghan Ban Gallagher; Ryan McHugh, Paul Brennan, Tony McClenaghan; Leo McLoone, Hugh McFadden; Stephen McBrearty, Odhrán Mac Niallais, Caolan McGonagle; Patrick McBrearty, Darach O’Connor, Martin O’Reilly.
