Chelsea 4-0 Maccabi Tel Aviv: Diego Costa stunner gives the Blues some much needed momentum

first_imgA sublime Diego Costa volley was the pick of the goals as Chelsea steamrollered Maccabi Tel Aviv at Stamford Bridge.It was a disastrous start for the Blues as Eden Hazard skied an early penalty.But goals from Willian, Oscar, Costa and Cesc Fabregas ensured a problem free night for Jose Mourinho, who left John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Nemanja Matic on the bench.The result was the only positive one for the English teams in round one of the Champions League and will give the side some momentum ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Arsenal.Less than 90 seconds of the game had gone when Ruben Loftus-Cheek marked his Champions League debut with a yellow card for a high foot.But minutes later Maccabi Tel Aviv received a yellow card of their own – for their goalkeeper 19-year-old Predrag Rajkovic – after Willian was brought down in the area.However, the Blues’ torrid start to the season continued as last season’s Player of the Year Hazard blasted the penalty into the second tier of Stamford Bridge – a ground where Chelsea have only lost once on 35 previous occasions in the Champions League group stages.Chelsea finally got their goal in somewhat fortuitous circumstances on 15 minutes,  when Willian’s in-swinging free kick from 40 yards out missed everyone, including Rajkovic, to nestle itself in the back of the net.The visitors clearly came with a gameplan to roughen up Mourinho’s men and Hazard and Willian were both on the end of some big challenges with the latter limping off injured for Costa.On the stroke of half time Chelsea were awarded another penalty after Costa was brought down by former Blue Tal Ben Haim and Oscar did what Hazard could not and scored to double the lead.Costa’s first goal of the season came on the hour mark in a move reminiscent of last year’s title winning campaign, as Fabregas dinked in a lovely ball and the Spaniard, with his back to goal, spun beautifully to volley first time into the top corner.Fabregas went from provider to goalscorer with 10 minutes remaining as a swift Chelsea break resulted in the fourth goal of the night as the midfielder passed the ball into an empty net.And that was that as the Blues just toyed with their guests for the remainder on the game to give the side some much needed confidence. In Group G’s other result of the night, Porto were held to a 2-2 draw away to Dynamo Kiev. 1 Diego Costa and Oscar last_img read more

A SHAMBLES! Paul Scholes launches blistering attack on LVG’s Man United team

first_img Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Juan Mata look glum as Manchester United fall to defeat against Liverpool Paul Scholes launched a blistering attack on Manchester United’s current crop of players and Louis van Gaal following their limp display against Liverpool on Thursday night.United were lucky to leave Anfield with only a 2-0 defeat as they were completely outfought and outclassed by their domestic rivals in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.Scholes has been a vocal critic of Van Gaal’s reign at Old Trafford and he did not hold back in his assesment of the Dutchman’s team after their latest disappointing performance.The United legend, who was watching the game alongside former teammate Rio Ferdinand for BT Sport, said: “United were a shambles.“At 2-0, they’re still in the game, don’t get me wrong, but when you’re at Man United, I think there’s certain standards you have to live up to that and they’ve fallen well short.“When we were coming through as players we had great examples in (Bryan) Robson, (Roy) Keane, (Paul) Ince and (Steve) Bruce setting standards, and when we came through we had to live up the standards and hopefully take the club on.“When me and Rio, when we were playing, we set standards for these players, the manager set the standard for David Moyes, for Louis van Gaal, and every single one of them have fallen short of the standards that should be set.“I thought the biggest difference there (was) Liverpool had a way of playing. United didn’t have a clue what they were trying to do.”Ferdinand went on echo Scholes’ criticism of the current side under Van Gaal.The ex-England captain added: “To see the lack of fight, the lack of urgency, the lack of cohesion in the team, there’s going to have to be a massive, massive improvement in the next leg at Old Trafford because that wasn’t good enough.“Sitting up here watching this, surrounded by Liverpool fans here at Anfield, it’s not easy.“There’s no excuses, sometimes you look at the manager etc., but then you’ve got to ask of the players out on the pitch, you’ve got to put in a performance, you’ve got to put in some sort of fight, and today we didn’t see that.“That’s one of the most disappointing things you can say about a performance sometimes is that it didn’t seem like we had the fight.“The cohesion and the patterns of play was non-existent today.” 1last_img read more

Lohan lawyers drop request for order in busboy’s suit

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn a four-page countersuit filed Oct. 11, Lohan’s attorneys note the CHP report shows Ortega was at fault for making an illegal U-turn. The collision involving Lohan’s black Mercedes-Benz SL65 and Ortega’s van occurred about 5 p.m. on Oct. 4, 2005, on Robertson Boulevard just south of Beverly Boulevard, according to his lawsuit. For more news and observations about crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here. Lawyers for Lindsay Lohan now say a busboy has responded to their request for answers and documents supporting his allegations in a lawsuit against the actress, according to court papers obtained today. Lohan’s lawyers filed a two-page document yesterday asking Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael L. Stern to cancel a Jan. 9 hearing. The actress’ lawyers were scheduled to ask for a court order on that date forcing Raymundo Ortega to give proof of his contention that she was drunk and fled the scene after the two were involved in a traffic collision. The Lohan attorneys deny the allegations and say their position is supported by the findings of the California Highway Patrol, which prepared a report on the collision. Ortega, of Los Angeles, sued Lohan for negligence on June 14. The restaurant worker alleges the actress, now 21 but then 19, had been drinking when she crashed a black Mercedes-Benz convertible into his van in West Hollywood two years ago. He wants at least $200,000 in damages. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

After facing title chasing Leicester in his first game, his side battled for a point at home against bitter rivals Sunderland the following weekend.What comes next is a no-less daunting trip to fellow strugglers Norwich, in what is already being touted as a relegation six-pointer.The Magpies will be buoyed by the returns of Daryl Janmaat and Cheick Tiote, but there’s no return for Fabricio Coloccini, and goalkeeper Rob Elliot will be out for the rest of the season.With injuries and suspensions in mind, it will be interesting to see how Benitez shuffles his pack against a Canaries side on the hunt for back-to-back wins, for the first time since January 2.Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see the predicted Newcastle line up. 5.

Evacuation drill in San Pedro

first_imgWhat if 17,300 gallons of dichloromethane began to leak from a rail car at the Port of Los Angeles? That was the scenario Monday for a mock hazardous-materials release that called for the evacuation of more than 1,100 people in San Pedro. The Los Angeles Fire Department along with Port Police executed the large-scale effort to analyze and control a poisonous contamination situation. Dichloromethane, commonly used as a paint stripper, can cause lung irritation, carbon monoxide poisoning and chemical burns to the skin. Other agencies, such as the U.S. Coast Guard and Animal Services, were on hand to observe the exercise from a command center. “One of my biggest concerns is the potential for a disaster at the Port of Los Angeles,” Councilwoman Janice Hahn said. “With 43 percent of all goods entering here, it’s one of the nation’s most vulnerable entryways for accidental disaster or purposeful terrorist attacks. “The chances are very good that one of these occurrences will happen here and that city employees, workers, residents and tourists will all have to be evacuated.” megan.bagdonas@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Some used the opportunity to take an extra long lunch, while others boarded buses headed to Ports O’ Call for a free meal provided to all evacuees. “Hey, it’s not raining, and we get a free lunch,” said evacuee Daniel Samaro, an engineering associate for the port. “It’s a sweet deal.” Fire and police officials chose a hazardous materials drill at the port so they can be prepared for an accidental leak or a terrorist attack. “The value of this exercise is to have all the emergency agencies work together in a real-life setting,” Fire Chief Douglas Berry said. “The inclusion of an evacuation component also played an important role in educating emergency personnel and the community.” The exercise took less than three hours. A real hazardous materials operation takes an average of four to six hours, fire Capt. Armando Hogan said. last_img read more

Massive ignoring of transit

first_img “We welcome the conversation we’re about to have,” said Vincent Duffy, a spokesman for Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez, who presented his own infrastructure bond proposal Friday. “We’re going to take a long, hard look at this stuff.” Under Schwarzenegger’s plan, Los Angeles County would get more than $1.2 billion for a range of highway and freight projects – including a car-pool lane on the northbound San Diego Freeway between the Westside and the San Fernando Valley, the biggest single highway project on the governor’s list. But controversy is already mounting for the projects the governor wants to fund and the amount of revenue going to each region. Los Angeles County, for example, would get almost as much as the Central Valley, for which the governor proposes $1 billion to expand Highway 99. McPeak said the project list is “not set in stone” and that the MTA and other local transportation commissions will be able to offer their choices in public hearings before the California Transportation Commission slated for fall, presuming voters approve the bonds this summer. But she warns that the governor’s list includes projects that could be done quickest and give the biggest bang for the buck at reducing traffic. Any substitutions – like Villaraigosa’s subway, for example – would have to do the same. The only new transit project for Los Angeles is $290 million for more rail tracks on the crowded line Metrolink shares with freight trains east from Union Station. McPeak said mass-transit projects didn’t make the governor’s list because they don’t capture enough riders unless they’re coupled with housing developments, and they take longer than the 10-year plan to build. “There’s not, right now, that much room for (that) kind of transit.” Funding for the governor’s projects would come from the $12 billion in bonds, which would have to repaid from the state’s general fund, and other sources. But he has also proposed toll roads that could be built privately by firms that could collect fees, which has drawn mixed reaction. Assemblywoman Jenny Oropeza, D-Carson, who chairs the Transportation Committee, is open to tolls for trucks or freight, but not for commuters. “She hates the idea of the toll roads for regular passenger vehicles. She thinks they’re elitist and don’t help working people,” said her spokesman, Ray Sotero. But Villaraigosa, who chairs the MTA, is willing to consider tolls on cars. “It’s something we’re willing to consider if it’s something we think would be beneficial for us,” said his spokesman, Darrell Ryan. Key to the governor’s transportation plan is a ballot measure that would prevent the Legislature from diverting gas-tax revenue that is supposed to be earmarked for transportation projects. Mark Pisano, executive director of the Southern California Association of Governments – the group that just gave traffic a failing grade in its annual report – said the governor can achieve his bold goal of reducing traffic congestion if he couples highway and transit construction with new land-use patterns. Pisano is confident the governor is just as interested in the kind of mixed-use, high-density housing along transit corridors SCAG believes are key to reducing traffic. “These (transportation) projects are absolutely important, but without a modification of development patterns … you can’t get to today’s levels of congestion,” he said. “You have to deal with the development patterns and the housing in order to achieve that.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 lisa.mascaro@dailynews.com Here are some of the Southern California transportation projects proposed in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s $222 billion infrastructure plan, which includes $107 billion for transportation: Highways Car-pool lane on northbound 405 (Westside to Valley): $350 million Car-pool lanes on I-10, La Puente to Diamond Bar: $280 million Improvements to I-5 interchange at Carmenita Road: $100 million Various smaller projects from auxiliary lanes to freeway connectors on I-5, I-10, the 405 and State Routes 91 and 60 across Southern California: $280 million Transit Add railroad track to ease congestion on the line that Metrolink, Amtrak and freight trains share from Union Station to the east: $290 million Alternative transportation options Bike/pedestrian/park-and-ride facilities statewide: $200 million160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson They were especially disappointed the state’s working list of projects didn’t include money for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s Wilshire Boulevard subway, the Westside’s Exposition light-rail train or the San Fernando Valley’s promised extensions to the Orange Line. “I appreciate and agree with his vision for dealing with the state’s infrastructure problems. I’m disappointed in his transportation element; there’s no transit,” said Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who also sits on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board. “Part of the reason we have traffic congestion is that people have no alternative but to use their cars. If we don’t address the mass-transit alternative issue, we can’t solve the traffic problem. “My hope is the Legislature will fill in where the governor’s proposal has fallen short.” Schwarzenegger’s transportation proposal is part of a sweeping $222 billion public-works project outlined Thursday night in his State of the State speech. Both the Senate and the Assembly are considering their own bond proposals that would include funding for transportation. Despite a population boom forecast for California, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hopes to keep traffic gridlock from worsening – and even improve it from today’s levels – with his $107 billion transportation plan, officials said Friday. The governor’s ambitious proposal for highways and freight-moving projects – which would be funded, in part, by voter-approved bonds – is unprecedented in a region where commuters spend 93 hours a year idling in traffic. It would add 750 highway miles, 550 miles of car-pool lanes and 600 miles of commuter rail. “We think we can make a significant improvement over today’s levels for the motorists in California,” said Sunne Wright McPeak, the administration’s secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing Agency. “Our goal is to reduce congestion below today’s level and still accommodate the increase in growth.” And while transit officials in Los Angeles County hailed the administration’s plans for improving freeways and rebuilding the state’s crumbling infrastructure, they also blasted the plan for ignoring mass transit – projects they say are critical to reducing congestion. last_img read more

Bryant scored 51 in loss

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Odom missed a long shot at the buzzer. Odom fouled out in the opening minute of overtime, and Sacramento went up 111-104 on Bibby’s sixth three-pointer and consecutive baskets by Thomas, who had 16 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. With 54 seconds left, Thomas set up a three-pointer by rookie Francisco Garcia, whose tight defense against Bryant prevented a huge game from becoming historic. Odom and Smush Parker berated official Dan Crawford after the final buzzer in the Lakers’ second loss in eight games. Bibby scored 24 points in the second half, and the Kings got a boost from the return of injured starters Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Peja Stojakovic. Sacramento has won four of five. SACRAMENTO – Mike Bibby scored 40 points, Kenny Thomas had six points in overtime to cap his first career triple-double, and the Sacramento Kings overcame Kobe Bryant’s 51-point performance for a 118-109 overtime victory against the Lakers on Thursday night. Brad Miller scored 16 points and forced overtime on a three-pointer with 4.1 seconds left in regulation for the Kings, who won their third straight game in a thriller despite Bryant’s best game ever against the Lakers’ longtime rivals. The NBA scoring leader got 21 points in the first quarter and 12 more in the final 5:43 of regulation, also making all 13 of his free throws to extend his franchise record to 48 straight. The Kings fell behind 102-97 with 35 seconds left on Lamar Odom’s three-pointer – but Sacramento scored seven quick points, tying it at 104 on Miller’s three-pointer from straightaway. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
