'FA let us down over Clattenburg'

Sky Sports - søn, 10/12/2017 - 11:45
The FA's decision not to address Mark Clattenburg's comments on refereeing Tottenham's game against Chelsea in 2016 has been described as "negligent" by Patrick Barclay on the Sunday Supplement.

WATCH: Tottenham 5-1 Watford

Sky Sports - lør, 09/12/2017 - 20:29
Watch the highlights as Tottenham returned to winning ways in the Premier League in style with a 5-1 thrashing of Stoke.

Harry Kane strikes twice as Tottenham brush aside hapless Stoke City

Guardian - lør, 09/12/2017 - 19:59

Mark Hughes said he “didn’t see that second half coming”. What was worse, his players didn’t see it as it happened. Tottenham raced away to turn a first-half advantage into a full-time supremacy here and, in the process, cast further doubt on Hughes’s tenure as Stoke manager.

The statistics from Saturday’s game were as follows: Ryan Shawcross’s own goal gave Spurs a first-half lead for only the second time in the Premier League at Wembley; Harry Kane scored twice, taking his total for England and Spurs in 2017 to 50, and leaving him just three short of Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 36 in a calendar year (with four more matches to play); Son Heung-min scored once and claimed two assists in a man-of-the-match performance; the South Korean also gave a chasing to poor Tom Edwards, Stoke’s 18-year-old wing-back who was withdrawn before the end.

5.18pm GMT

Asmir Begovic talks about Bournemouth’s draw at Palace. Considering he saved a stoppage-time penalty, he seems remarkably downbeat.

Obviously a big moment. Thankfully I made a save and helped the team get a point. It was a difficult day. We played well and it would have been a travesty if we hadn’t come away with anything. It was a clean tackle, got the ball, one of those things. I couldn’t care a less who took it.

No second-half goals, but from the looks of things I missed Real hitting the woodwork a couple of times.

8 - @Cristiano y @Benzema han dado más palos (8 en total) que goles han marcado en esta Liga (Cristiano 5 palos, 4 goles - Benzema 3 palos, 2 goles). Desafortunados pic.twitter.com/kBnYSvoikE

5.02pm GMT

The final whistle sounds at Chesterfield. What a conclusion! Meanwhile there have been no goals to tell you about in the second half in Madrid, where it remains 5-0. And finally, I believe that both Randal Smathers and Hubert O’Hearn are both real people. You’ll be telling me Santa doesn’t exist next.

@Simon_Burnton As an Englishman living in Canada, I refuse to believe that Randall Smathers is a real name...and Hubert O'hearn is questionable also

4.59pm GMT

Chesterfield have won it! Weir has scored in the 93rd minute to put his side 2-1 up against Barnet, who are about to be left stranded on the bottom of the League Two table! “So Morecambe thrashing the new City of Culture 2-0 isn’t one of the ‘League Two Megamatches’?!” sniffs Bruce Jackson. Sorry.

90' GGGGOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL ROBBIE WEIR 2-1 TOWN THE BIRTHDAY BOY GETS OUR SECOND 2-1!!!!!

4.58pm GMT

That, surely, is the game of the day. Controversial refereeing decisions, glorious goals, terrible misses, it’s had the lot. And it ends in a draw.

4.56pm GMT

In the fifth of four minutes of stoppage time Watford win a free kick. Everyone goes forward. Gomes is in the penalty area. Holebas takes it – and he overhits it straight into the palms of Pope! And that’s it!

4.55pm GMT

Milivojevic took their first penalty, and scored with aplomb. Benteke though takes their second, and his effort is low, soft and nowhere near the corner, and Begovic saves!

4.53pm GMT

Spot-kick machine Wilfried Zaha has won yet another spot-kick, and a brilliant chance to win this game!

4.52pm GMT

Those are important points for Huddersfield, and it was all too easy from Brighton’s perspective.

4.51pm GMT

Well, Stoke didn’t lose 4-0. So that’s something. Son played brilliantly, Stoke defended hopelessly (and on occasion unluckily) and Spurs romp to a comfortable victory.

4.49pm GMT

I take my eye off Burnley v Watford for a moment, and something has caused Marco Silva to get so excited the referee has to come over to calm him down. Presumably he thought Burnley should have had a man sent off, in the process of conceding a free kick on their right flank. They didn’t, though, but Holebas sends in a lovely free kick that could have been converted (but wasn’t).

4.42pm GMT

At some point there have been equalisers in both the League Two megamatches, so it’s now Luton 1-1 Notts County, and also Chesterfield 1-1 Barnet.

4.41pm GMT

“As a Canadian expat (17 years of married bliss & counting) I have news for Hubert O’Hearn,” writes Randal Smathers. “Once people hear you’re Canadian all they’ll want to do is have dull and endless conversations about the sizes of snowfalls. And ice hockey. And how freaking nice Canadians are, so you might need to adjust your expectations.”

4.40pm GMT

Another goal from a corner! The ball comes in from the left, hits someone in the head at the far post, hits Nyom in the shin, drops invitingly into open space inside the penalty area and Bony reacts first, runs onto it and lashes it home. Hard.

4.39pm GMT

The comeback starts here! A corner from the left, and Lloris hares off his line to collect it but gets nowhere near, and all Shawcross has to do is get his header on target. Which he does.

4.37pm GMT

“That was a good decision,” writes Roy Allen of Burnley’s latest disallowed goal. “Barnes was marginally offside when the pass was played. The pass deflected off defenders but the initial offside is what mattered.”

4.36pm GMT

Some team news from the Premier League’s late game:

Newcastle: Darlow, Yedlin, Lejeune, Clark, Manquillo, Hayden, Merino, Ritchie, Murphy, Joselu, Gayle. Subs: Elliot, Lascelles, Shelvey, Diame, Perez, Atsu, Mitrovic.
Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell,
Mahrez, Ndidi, Iborra, Albrighton, Gray, Vardy. Subs: Iheanacho, King, Hamer, Dragovic, Okazaki, Ulloa, Fuchs.
Referee: Neil Swarbrick.

4.34pm GMT

Well it won’t finish 4-0 this time. Son picks the ball up well inside his own half; Eriksen runs ahead of him and holds the line of the last defender, but some way away from him and all on his own. Both run another 30 yards towards the Stoke goal and then Son plays a perfect, if not exactly difficult, defence-splitting pass and the Dane does the rest.

4.32pm GMT

Burnley have had another goal disallowed. Ashley Barnes has put the ball in the net, but the flag is up. There’s some confusion, though, as the referee goes to talk to his assistant, but after a pause, he confirms there will be no goal. It’s not really clear why.

4.29pm GMT

At Turf Moor Carillo runs into the penalty area, takes on Tarkowski and goes down. It looked to me like the defender might have stood on a toe there, but then again maybe he didn’t. Hard to tell. Watford want a penalty, but the referee gives a goal kick.

4.26pm GMT

A great chance for Burnley to score a second, as a cross from the right reaches the far post, but when Long sticks out a leg to turn it in it hits his shin and flies high.

4.25pm GMT

“I emigrated from Canada to the UK five years less three days ago,” writes Hubert O’Hearn. “Know why I moved? I got really tired of dull and endless conversations about the sizes of snowfalls. And don’t get me started on ice hockey.”

4.23pm GMT

The last three matches between Stoke and Spurs have finished 4-0 to Tottenham, and they’ve done it again! They attack down the right, a lovely curling cross is touched into Kane’s path by Son – lovely awareness there – and from the edge of the area the Englishman scores with a fine low shot.

4.21pm GMT

Burnley have had the ball in the Watford net again, but it’s disallowed for offside. I think Cork, who had the shot, wasn’t offside but that Wood then tapped it in from the goal-line, and he was. Though of course the linesman might have just given Cork offside.

4.16pm GMT

“Obviously Arfield would be the one to score in the snow, seeing as he’s Canadian,” notes Kevin Smith. “Although I agree with Mike about your definition of blizzard. Can you see across the field? Not a blizzard.” OK, I give up. It’s not a blizzard. It’s just common-or-garden snowfall, of a medium-heavy variety.

4.14pm GMT

Hull have equalised against Brentford, Kamil Grosicki scoring what by all accounts is a bit of a cracker.

4.13pm GMT

This all starts with Butland being caught in possession by Kane. That leads to a corner, which is half-cleared, worked back to the left and the resulting long, high cross drops on the forehead of Kane at the far post, and he heads low into goal!

4.11pm GMT

Son, who has by all accounts played splendidly, sprints down the inside left channel and no defender spots him. Dele Alli does, though, plays him clean through and Son takes a touch and shoots low inside the near post.

4.10pm GMT

“Haven’t seen the Zeegalaar replay but of course everyone knows (right, UK fans?) that you don’t actually have to make contact to be sent off,” notes Rick McGahey. “A dangerous studs-up challenge, an attempted kick or punch, etc fit the definition for a red card. And refs have a necessary penumbra (hey, it’s the Guardian!) of discretion so another ref might only have cautioned there, but both of the decisions would be correct within the laws of the game.” I think you’re precisely right, though I don’t know what a penumbra is.

4.08pm GMT

Minor Championship update: It’s still 0-0 between Wolves and Sunderland. Hull, meanwhile, are a goal down at home to Brentford, David Meyler scoring a 47th-minute own goal.

4.05pm GMT

“By Montreal standards the image of the snow in Burnley barely makes it up to what one might expect in a snow globe paper weight on sale in a tourist show or at a grand mother’s house,” sniffs Bill Bukowski.

4.04pm GMT

There’s no let-up here: the 3 o’clock kick-offs have kicked back off again.

3.59pm GMT

Sevilla are going to struggle to come back from this now.

3.57pm GMT

I’ve seen another replay of the Zeegelaar challenge. He does fly in, he probably isn’t in control, but it’s one-footed and there’s pretty much no actual contact with Defour.

3.56pm GMT

I appear to have missed a goal in Madrid. Kroos scores a fourth, though, carrying the ball forward from the halfway line, playing it to his right, taking it back again and hitting a low, first-time shot from 16 yards.

3.54pm GMT

Some photographic evidence of snowfall:

3.52pm GMT

The replay was inconclusive. It certainly wasn’t a fantastic tackle, and Defour’s reaction was certainly exaggerated. It could have gone either way, but I’d be surprised if they appeal.

@Simon_Burnton Very poor decision by Probert to send off Zeegelaar. Clueless reffing.

3.50pm GMT

That’s a wondergoal from Jermain Defoe! A long ball is pumped forwards, Defoe runs onto it, it bounces over his shoulder and as it drops, from an acute angle out to the right of goal, he volleys it over the keeper and in!

3.48pm GMT

Scott Dann certainly likes playing Bournemouth.

1 - Scott Dann is the first ever central defender to score in four consecutive Premier League games against the same opponent. Curveball.

3.47pm GMT

Watford won’t be happy about that. Like last week, they might have had a penalty for a foul on Richarlison, get nothing from the referee and their opponents run up the other end and score! Arfield receives a low pass from the right and scores with a fine finish.

3.46pm GMT

Palace take the lead! It’s another corner from the right, which isn’t properly cleared, is eventually re-centred and Dann thumps in at the far post!

3.45pm GMT

A long cross from the left is headed back onto the middle of the area, and Mounie’s header should have been easily saved but the goalkeeper flops slowly down, the ball bounces beneath him and Huddersfield go two up!

3.43pm GMT

That’s the equaliser for Palace, Milivojevic crashing the ball into the top right corner!

3.42pm GMT

Crystal Palace have a penalty! Zaha goes past Ake too easily and goes down over Begovic’s challenge, also too easily, and the referee points to the spot. Not a lot in that, I think.

3.41pm GMT

Zeegelaar flies in on Defour, who rolls around dramatically, and Lee Probert’s card is out instantly!

3.39pm GMT

Real take control! Ronaldo is played through on the right of the area and his first touch is lovely, he opens up his body and then shoots right-footed, low inside the near post!

3.38pm GMT

Incredible miss! Harry Kane is clean through on goal, the keeper comes out, Kane prods it past him … and past the post!

3.37pm GMT

“I’m watching Burnley & Watford intermittently while focusing on Huddersfield & BHA,” writes Mike MacKenzie. “I’d call it snow flurries by Canadian standards.” Yeah, but a blizzard by Canadian standards involves actual polar bears and stuff.

3.37pm GMT

I think the lad’s overdecorated a little here.

Arbolito listo !! pic.twitter.com/yzQ35P2B05

3.35pm GMT

“After 25 minutes I think we’re looking at the worst game of the season at Swansea,” writes JR. “It is absolutely wretched. Both teams are shocking. It’s so bad that it’s good, though. Really remarkable. Seriously, you should be watching this before it gets any better. It sure couldn’t get worse.” You sell it so well, but I’m a bit busy at the moment.

3.33pm GMT

There’s a blizzard at Burnley, where the snow is falling in great big fluffy clumps. I can’t find any photographs to prove it yet, for some reason, but I’ll keep an eye out. Still no goals, mind.

3.29pm GMT

Meanwhile at Wembley, Butland makes a decent save from Eriksen’s free kick.

3.28pm GMT

And now a first goal in the League Two top-of-the-table enormogame: John Mullins has put Luton 1-0 up against Notts County.

3.27pm GMT

Sakho, whose injury stopped him pushing up with the rest of the Palace defence and thus allowed Defoe to skip through without being offside, is unable to continue. Scott Dann comes on.

3.26pm GMT

Chance for Bournemouth! Defoe is played in on the left side of the penalty area, but instead of shifting the ball onto his right foot and smashing it goalwards he keeps carrying it forward, giving the defence time to catch up and snaffle the ball.

3.23pm GMT

That is the toughest of luck. Son crosses from the left and the ball flies up off Zouma’s boot, smacks Shawcross in the face and flies in!

3.21pm GMT

And another chance at Turf Moor, this to the home side, who are right on top at the moment. They win a free kick, 25 yards out, and Defour’s low shot is heading towards the corner of goal until Gomes sticks out a hand to save.

3.20pm GMT

Another corner from the right, and another goal! This one flies to the back post, where there are two defenders and no attackers. Sadly defender one jumps into the line of defender two’s vision, misses it, it hits defender two on the shoulder, goes back towards goal, and Nacho chests it down and smashes it in!

3.17pm GMT

The first big goal in a big game in League Two, and Barnet have taken the lead at Chesterfield. John Akinde is the scorer.

3.13pm GMT

Another corner, and another goal! This one is swung in from the right, flicked on at the near post and Mounie runs in all alone at the back stick to tummy it in!

3.12pm GMT

And Bournemouth go down the other end and take the lead! A low corner is played back to the taker, sent in low again, only harder and a few yards further back, and Defoe tucks it away from the penalty spot!

3.11pm GMT

Andros Townsend goes on a nice run down the right for Palace, and Daniels takes him out unceremoniously. That surely should have been a booking, but the referee keeps his book in his pocket.

3.09pm GMT

What a chance for Watford! Carillo crosses from the right and Richarlison meets it at the near post. He stretches out his left leg and needs only to turn the ball towards goal and surely the away side would take the lead, but if anything he hits it too well Jeff, and the ball flies over the bar.

3.06pm GMT

Our own Paul Doyle is at Villa Park, and it sounds like he’s having fun:

Tremendous atmosphere in the away end at Villa Park so far today. So if you're having a house party this xmas, perhaps consider inviting a few hundred Millwall fans

3.05pm GMT

Watford have the first top-flight chance, but their cunning corner-kick routine ends with Troy Deeney heading wide.

3.02pm GMT

BONG! It’s 3pm, and they’re off!

2.56pm GMT

Teams are emerging from dressing rooms. Action is but a few minutes away.

2.44pm GMT

“Hi Simon,” writes Woolie Madden. Hello! “Could you provide team sheets for Litherland REMYCA Reserves v Poulton Royal, and tomorrow’s game between SAI-Kolkata U18 v Mohammedan U18? Cheers.” Um, no. But since you mention Litherland REMYCA, let’s enjoy some more excellent footage of snowy football pitches – their match against Whitchurch Alport is unsurprisingly off.

2.30pm GMT

Here’s some evidence of snowfall:

2.24pm GMT

Quite the start to our Premier League weekend: the final whistle blows at West Ham, and Chelsea have been beaten 1-0!

2.15pm GMT

Paul Clement, who makes four changes for the visit of West Brom today, has a pre-match chat:

Clearly after the game last weekend it wasn’t particularly good, but we’ve had apositive week’s training. The players have worked in a good manner, focused, concentrated, and that can give you belief and confidence going into a game. We’re trying to find that thing that just clicks. I’ve freshened it up a little bit. The players coming in, they’re fresh, they’re motivated, they want to help the team. We need to start well, give the fans something to cheer about, and I’m sure they’ll follow us from there.

2.06pm GMT

Here’s the team news from all five Premier League games. If you’d like any other team news, do drop me a line.

Burnley v Watford
Burnley: Pope, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Long, Ward, Arfield, Cork, Hendrick, Defour, Gudmundsson, Wood. Subs: Taylor, Vokes, Barnes, Westwood, Ulvestad, Wells, Lindegaard.
Watford: Gomes, Janmaat, Mariappa, Kabasele, Zeegelaar, Cleverley, Doucoure, Carrillo, Pereyra, Richarlison, Deeney. Subs: Prodl, Success, Gray, Watson, Holebas, Capoue, Karnezis.
Referee: Lee Probert.

1.58pm GMT

Here’s a man who knows how to make himself popular:

Absolute respect to AFC Wimbledon's Darius Charles who has sent £150 over to a Manchester pub towards some beers for the travelling Dons fans as soon as the Bury game was postponed pic.twitter.com/pEwE9ptXnz

6.33pm GMT

So another Saturday dawns, and it’s packed with potential. There are five 3 o’clock kick-offs in the Premier League, plus some Spanish interest as the game between Real Madrid and Sevilla, tied on 28 points in La Liga and with third place (at least until Atlético play tomorrow) the reward for whoever wins, gets under way at 3.15pm. As an added bonus there are two absolutely massive matches in League Two, where the teams separated only by goal difference at the top, and the sides similarly divided at the bottom, play each other.

Weather news: it’s a bit chilly in England at the minute, and two referees have decided that it’s far too cold to play football – news of the postponements, and indeed details of every fixture in the English leagues, follows. For now, though, hello, welcome, let’s have some fun!

Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham must act more swiftly on transfer deals

Guardian - fre, 08/12/2017 - 23:30
• Manager believes late signings have been hampering team-building efforts
• ‘We need to identify targets so that when we start our pre-season they are here’

Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur have paid a price for the late completion of their summer transfer business and has made it plain that the club will have to be quicker and smarter next time.

The manager will be restricted in the January window as his Champions League squad already contains the maximum of 17 foreign players – and that number does not include the fit-again Érik Lamela, whom he is keen to reintegrate for the knockout stage.
