Pardew: Class needed if Cabaye departs

first_imgNewcastle manager Alan Pardew admits he could lose Yohan Cabaye and has said the club must work on identifying a high-quality replacement for his influential French midfielder. Press Association Pardew thought his side were primed to pinch all three points in injury time when substitute Sammy Ameobi’s floated cross struck the inside of the post and bounced out for Yoan Gouffran, who somehow contrived to scoop the ball over the bar. Pardew added: “Sammy hit a great little cross and I thought it was in, then it came back on the wrong side for Gouffran – he’ll be sweating on the Christmas gaffes for misses of the season. “I think we looked a more disciplined and cohesive defensive unit but in the offensive areas you could tell we needed a few more options off the bench. “It would have been nice to have more senior players to bring on, but I can walk out of here fairly happy that we’ve put in a professional performance, if not a performance that we really wanted.” West Ham boss Sam Allardyce maintained his personal unbeaten record at St James’ Park since his departure as Newcastle boss, but like Pardew blamed a lack of sharpness up front for his side’s blank scoresheet. Allardyce said: “We’ve got to improve on that scenario – I watched Chelsea beat Aston Villa in midweek and they didn’t create as many chances as us today. “You’ve got to finish your chances off. It was great to keep a clean sheet again and these are great points for us, but we have got to start being more clinical in front of goal.” Allardyce had no complaints over Modibo Maiga’s disallowed goal in the last minute and admitted he feared the worst when Ameobi went within inches of winning it for the hosts in injury time. Allardyce added: “Zero shots on target [from Newcastle] away from home is a pretty good achievement in the Premier League, but I could have been sat here so sick had that fluke cross ended up in the back of the net. “So in the end I’m satisfied with a point and another clean sheet but we are disappointed that we didn’t take any of those very, very good chances.” center_img Cabaye was once again sidelined for the grim goalless draw with West Ham at St James’ Park as transfer speculation continues to rage over Cabaye, with both Arsenal and Paris St Germain said to be preparing improved bids. Pardew said: “The situation is quite simple – we need to resolve the situation. We need to get ourselves in a position where if he stays, great, and if doesn’t stay we need to get someone equally as good.” last_img read more

Man Utd ease to Community Shield win

first_imgRobin van Persie ensured that the David Moyes era at Manchester United began with a trophy as Wigan were beaten in the FA Community Shield at Wembley.New United boss Moyes has spent most of his summer discussing the off-field future of Wayne Rooney, but back on the pitch it was last year’s top scorer Van Persie who again proved the difference.The Dutchman took just six minutes to open his account for the new season, steering a powerful header into the corner from Patrice Evra’s clipped cross. And while Championship side Wigan impressed for periods, Van Persie then settled the contest after the break when he fired in via a deflection.In truth, a victory against last season’s surprise FA Cup winners was the minimum required from Moyes’ meaningful debut in the United dugout as he began the ominous task of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson.And while his side looked sharp in spells – with veteran Ryan Giggs particularly impressive in the opening stages – Moyes may have been concerned by the ease with which Wigan controlled the ball either side of half-time. Owen Coyle’s team were comfortable during that period and had summer signings Grant Holt and James McClean linked up with more accuracy could have caused United more problems.Once Van Persie found a second goal for United though the game was won, leaving Moyes to contemplate his first managerial honour since guiding Preston North End to the Division Two title in 2000.The discussion will now inevitably return to the status of Rooney, who was deemed unfit to feature with a shoulder injury sustained in his sole pre-season run out for United, but fit enough to play at least some part for England back in this stadium on Wednesday against Scotland. United started like champions, with the first goal of the Moyes era coming from a predictable source.Van Persie started the move by spinning a pass out to Evra on the left wing before making his way into the area. Evra looked up and picked out the Dutchman who evaded his markers to power in a wonderful header from 15 yards. It was a fabulous finish and threatened to all but end the contest before it had really begun.For the following quarter of an hour Wigan – with Holt left increasingly isolated up front – were left chasing shadows as the impressive Wilfried Zaha, Giggs and Danny Welbeck interchanged at will behind Van Persie.But the storm was weathered by the Latics, who ended the half on top with McClean twice putting in testing balls across the face of goal which Holt could not reach.When David De Gea then flapped at a set-piece to allow Emmerson Boyce and then Leon Barnett a chance to head at goal Wigan will have felt hopeful of getting back into the game. And it was the Championship side who continued to set the agenda after the break until Van Persie struck again in the 59th minute. Again Evra started the move, linking with Cleverley on the left before finding Welbeck on the edge of the area. The England man could have shot but played it to Van Persie, who, despite having four defenders in close attendance, was able to turn on to his left foot and fire in a low shot which took a deflection off the heel of James Perch and wrong-footed Scott Carson.That signalled a comfortable end to proceedings, with both sides making changes and former Latics midfielder Antonio Valencia going closest to a third goal when he shot wide.United will face a sterner test at Swansea on Saturday, while for Wigan it is back to life in the second tier at Bournemouth.Wigan manager Owen Coyle:“We always knew that it would be a tough afternoon, we conceded an unbelievable finish. The header could only go in one place. But we had a good spell either side of it and United got a fortuitous second goal which finished the game. “We are trying to get back to playing these elite teams every week. We are building a good side here, I am still looking to add to that, though my chief executive may not want to hear that!“There is a lot we can take from today’s game. James McClean wants to focus on his football and he was pleasing on the eye. He caused them problems and could have scored.”Manchester United manager David Moyes:“I class that as another piece of silverware for Sir Alex. It was his team that won the league by 13-15 points so it’s his team. The ones going forward will be down to me.“Wilfried Zaha has done well in pre-season and it was right for him to feature today. He picked up an injury. We are looking forward to using him as the season goes on.”last_img read more

Clippers’ Patrick Beverley sets the tone and never stops

first_img“I’ve been around Pat ever since I came in the league,” said Harrell, whom Houston sent to L.A. with Beverley and six others in a trade for Chris Paul before the 2017-18 season.“I’ve seen him get up under the guy’s skin, just make it tough for them, make it a long night being in the pits. That’s what he’s good at. He knows who he is. He doesn’t try to do anything outside his self.”Rivers likes to tell of his first conversation with Beverley, a 2017 NBA All-Defensive first-teamer who once was a prolific scorer, averaging an Illinois-best 37.3 points as a senior at John Marshall Metropolitan High School – where he competed against Rivers’ alma mater.“He was in Houston and I’m standing like I do, never saying anything to the officials or anything,” Rivers recalled. “And all of a sudden he says, ‘We kicked Proviso East’s butt!’ I’m like, ‘What?’ ”“The story I tell all the time,” said second-year guard Tyrone Wallace, “is before my first year, summer training camp, I was getting a workout in with Sam (Cassell) and Pat was in here. We were going off ball screens, so I hop in the drill and I’m going off a ball screen, and Pat, he just finished his rep and he’s coming back around, and he hops right in front of me and slaps the ball out of my hand.“This is my first time, and I’m like, ‘Damn, man, is this guy crazy!? What the (heck)?’ And he’s like, ‘That’s what they gon’ do in the game.’ Typical Pat.“And now I’m careful how I’m coming off with the ball.”Related Articles Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory In the Clippers’ first-round Western Conference playoff series with the top-seeded Golden State Warriors, it’s Kevin Durant who’s got the best Patrick Beverley story, whether he appreciates it or not.“Pat Beverley … thinks he could beat Tyson in his prime in a fight,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said earlier this year, “which is stupid, but he believes that. And I think that rubs off on all our guys.”On Monday night in Oakland, the Clippers evened their best-of-seven series with the two-time defending champs at one game apiece thanks to an NBA playoff record 31-point comeback victory.Now they’re headed back to Staples Center for Game 3 on Thursday, where the Clippers’ 6-foot-1 professional pest will continue his ferocious, chest-to-chest defense on the 6-9 Durant.So far, Beverley’s managed not only to slow the 10-time All-Star, but he’s nudged him off-kilter.In Game 2, both players fouled out in the final minutes. With Beverley draped all over him, Durant finished with 21 points, took just eight shots and committed nine turnovers in nearly 35 minutes.In Saturday’s opener, Durant – a career 28.7 points-per-playoff game scorer – had 21 points when he and Beverley received matching sets of technical fouls, for which both were ejected.The assumption afterward was that Beverley was trying to bait Golden State’s superstar.“No, I was not,” he said. “I was just being Pat.”Jordan, the young Jenga champion, would vouch for that. So would anyone who’s stepped on a court with the 30-year-old – whether in Chicago, where Beverley grew up; in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where he played college ball for a couple of years; in Dnipro, Ukraine, where he self-exiled himself to prepare for the NBA; and, as he waited his turn, in Athens, Greece and Saint Petersburg, Russia; and finally with the Rockets in Houston and now, here in L.A. LOS ANGELES — The nurse is growing concerned.“You cannot make those noises in a hospital,” she says to no one in particular.She’s in a hallway at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, hearing grunts and howls coming from a room in which a 14-year-old boy is in the process of taking down Patrick Beverley at Jenga.Beverley is not going quietly. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error On his second visit in a couple weeks to the Los Angeles hospital, the Clippers’ fiery guard and emotional leader has asked everyone in the party with him – Clippers staffers, hospital personnel and a trio of reporters – to stay outside while he spends extended, undistracted time with (read: competes against) Jordan, a kid from L.A. who’s stuck at the hospital with nothing much to do besides play Jenga.Beverley spends close to 30 intense minutes with Jordan. Through the open doorway, he can be seen circling the wobbly Jenga tower, mulling his moves, and whenever he successfully extracts a piece of the tower, pounding his chest like he would in the fourth (or first) quarter.But Jordan has been training, so he’s prepared for the world-class competitor. He outlasts Beverley, who sighs in defeat, shakes his opponents’ hand and tells him: “My dude, good game,” adding, “I don’t like to lose, bro.”Oh, they know. Everybody knows.Anyone who’s approached Patrick Beverley’s orbit has a story about the Chicagoan’s competitiveness, his maniacal drive and desire, which, when applied on a basketball court, can only be described as a skill, a talent: “You’re absolutely right about that! If it was easy, you’d see a bunch of Montrezl Harrells, but you just really don’t,” Beverley said. Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Beverley missed only four games (all losses) this season, after playing only 11 last season, when his Clippers debut was cut short by the arthroscopic surgery needed to repair a lateral meniscus in his right knee.Having to sit wasn’t fun, but the detail-oriented Beverley is better for spending months studying the game as a coach would, he said.“They give me lemons, I make lemonade,” said Beverley, who attends chapel before each game and is a regular source of locker room laughter, and who on Monday never ceased clenching his fists or clapping his palms, willing his team forward even with what should have been a deflating 31-point deficit looming over them.“He’s so important for us,” Rivers said afterward. “People get lost in some of his antics and stuff, but his spirit and his soul is so important for our team.” Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates last_img read more

Liberia’s Trade Deficit Widens

first_imgLiberia’s trade deficit is widening, the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) has declared. According to the CBL, the key driver of the country’s trade deficit is its huge import receipts, which is further exacerbated by its sole reliance on rubber and iron ore as its key export commodities. Total import payments rose by 19.7% to US$300.5 million, the Bank said.The problem facing the post-conflict economy can mostly be traced to the volatility of global prices of iron ore and rubber, which exposes the country to susceptible external shocks.In its third Quarter Financial &Economic Bulletin, the CBL acknowledged this as a troubling sign for the economy and immediately published a recommendation for the government to pursue a swift policy action aimed at widening the country’s export base towards non-traditional exports in order to reverse its sole dependence on iron ore and rubber.The Bank observed that the ongoing downward trend in global commodity prices continue to make commodity-exporting economies vulnerable to external shocks, as already reflected in Liberia’s export receipts in the last few quarters.The Bank also reported that at end-September, 2013, rubber and iron ore exports recorded a combined 81.1% of total export receipts from 78.1% at end-June, 2013; representing about 20.6% decline in combined iron ore and rubber export receipts to US$99.5 million at end-September, 2013 from US$125.4 million at end-June, 2013.The CBL noted that this decline largely accounted for the 23.5% decline in total merchandise export receipts.At end-September, 2013 merchandise export receipts had declined by 23.5% to US$122.8 million, from US$160.5 million at end-June, 2013.According to the CBL, this was largely on account of 19.6%, 23.2% and 33.9% declines in iron ore, rubber and non-iron ore and rubber export receipts during the review quarter relative to the preceding quarter.Amid this challenge, iron ore continues to overshadow rubber in the country’s export sector as the country’s primary export commodity.At end-September, 2013 iron ore accounted for 58.1% of total export receipts at the end of the preceding quarter.On an annualized basis, iron ore exports more than doubled by US$39.5 million to US$71.4 million at the end of the review quarter from US$31.9 million at end-September, 2012. Rubber export receipts fell by 23.2% to US$28.2 million during the quarter from US$36.6 million at end-June, 2013 accounting for 22.9% of total export receipts.Liberia’s Deteriorating Balance of PaymentsThe CBL has released a provisional statistics of Liberia’s overall balance of payments (BoP) highlighting a deficit of US$216.5 million. The statistics, which is curled from the Bank’s Third Quarter Economic &Financial Bulletin, is published the US$216.5 million from a revised surplus of US$38.0 at the end of the previous quarter. According to the CBL, the overall balance of payments deteriorated on an annualized basis by US$338.0 million at the end of September, 2013 from a surplus of US$121.5 million at the end of September, 2012.Balance of payments accounts are an accounting record of all monetary transactions between a country and the rest of the world.These transactions, according to economists, include payments for the country’s exports and import of goods, services financial capital and financial transfers. In other words, the balance of trade is the difference between a nation’s exports of goods and services and its imports of goods and services, if all financial transfers, investments and other components are ignored.According to economists, a nation is said to have a trade deficit if its imports exceeds its exports. But this is not the case with Liberia.According to the CBL, the quarterly deterioration in the country’s BoP was largely on account of 22.8% and 94.6% declines in the financial and capital accounts respectively at end-September, 2013 compared with their levels at end-June, 2013.The Bank observed that the 7.2% rise in the current account deficit also contributed to the quarterly BoP deterioration. The current account deficit deteriorated to US$440.8 million at end-September, 2013 from US$411.3 million at end-June, 2013 largely on account of a 96.6% surge in the trade deficit and 65.1% decline in current transfers during the quarter. A current account is one of the two primary components of the balance of payments, the other being capital account. The CBL noted that year-on-year comparison shows 18.4%, 23.1% and 96.0% deteriorations in the financial, current and capital account balances at end-September, 2013, largely explaining the huge annualized deterioration in the BoP deficit.  Asia, Europe ECOWAS Top Liberia’s Direction of TradeAsia, Europe and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) sub-region accounted for the giant share of Liberia’s total trade in the third quarter, the CBL says. Export receipts from Europe amounted to US$67.3 million, accounting for 54.8% of total export receipts for the quarter, from 18.5%of total export receipts during the preceding quarter.According to the CBL, the surge in export towards Europe reflects the ongoing recovery in the Eurozone, mainly improved growth figures for Germany and France for the previous quarter.Asia’s share of Liberia’s exports for the quarter amounted to US$37.5 million from US$38.0 million at end-June 2013, accounting for 30.5% of total export receipts, from 38.0% for the preceding quarter. The CBL blamed the decline on weak external demand from China, the world’s fastest growing economy.On the other hand, Liberia’s intra-regional export trade with its sub-regional counterparts witnessed a decline during the quarter under review, amounting to US$10.4 million or 8.5% of total export receipts from US$19.3 million or 12.0% of total export receipts at end-June, 2013.The low level relative to Europe and Asia reflects the several constraints to trade in the sub-region. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

IBSA ‘well on the way’ to $25bn in trade

first_img19 October 2011 The India, Brazil, South Africa (IBSA) grouping is well on its way to achieving its target of US$25-billion in trilateral trade by 2015, with the latest figures suggesting the three countries had surpassed $16-million in 2010, says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies. “We set ourselves a target of achieving $10-billion in combined intra-IBSA trade by the year 2010, and in fact we achieved that in 2009, in the midst of the first wave of global economic recession,” Davies told the IBSA Business Forum in Pretoria on Monday. IBSA is a trilateral developmental initiative between the three countries aimed at promoting South-South cooperation and exchange. “The current figures suggest that in 2010 we achieved $16.1-billion, which places us somewhere in striking distance to achieve the current target, which is $25-billion combined intra-trade by the year 2015,” he told the Indian, Brazilian, and South African delegations at Monday’s forum.Build trade ‘in complementary areas’ Davies urged the IBSA countries to build trade relations based on complementary areas. “As South Africa, we have learned an enormous amount in terms of our own policies on small business development from the relationship which we have … with NSIC [the National Small Industries Corporation] of India and the Sebrae of Brazil. “We follow very closely what you are all doing in terms of industrial policy. We study what you are doing, we learn from you, and it helps us enormously, and we hope as well that we are able to contribute in terms of the development of your own policies as well.” Davies also called for the formation of an IBSA CEOs Forum with a permanent secretariat to continuously assess what needed to be done to enhance business cooperation among the three countries.Business ‘must take advantage of IBSA’ Business Unity South Africa (Busa) CEO Nomaxabiso Majokweni told the forum that business had to make the most of the opportunities provided by the relationship that existed between the IBSA countries. “As the private sector, we must make the most of the opportunities provided by the strong political commitment and will demonstrated by our government leaders to improve trade and investment relations among our countries.” Majokweni said the countries were meeting in uncertain global economic times, particularly for developed economies haunted by fears of recession and sovereign default.Govts ‘must act to avoid fiscal debt crisis’ “The banking sectors amongst IBSA countries all survived the banking crisis. However, our exposure to European sovereign debt poses a serious concern,” Majokweni said. “Our respective governments and central banks have and need to continue making bold fiscal and monetary moves that sustain our economies in challenging times. Of particular importance are those policy interventions aimed at stimulating the real economy.” She said the steps taken should not cut capital expenditure, which was a key stimulus for economic growth, but rather should be measures to avoid a fiscal debt crisis. Although current growth rates were reduced, emerging markets remained a frontier of hope, Majokweni said. Busa also presented recommendations coming out of the forum on sectors such as healthcare and pharmaceuticals, where observations made included that all three countries needed to produce and promote generic pharmaceutical products. For the financial and business services sector, it was recommended that there be continued shared learning on rural financial inclusion in areas such as new products and IT connectivity.
