RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Stoke City manager salutes Mikel Lampard: Tomori won’t leave Chelsea Eden Hazard has been brandished the “laziest player I have played with” by former Chelsea teammate, John Obi Mikel, while also insisting Hazard remained an “incredible talent”. Mikel, now playing in Turkey, spent 11 seasons at Chelsea, five of them alongside Hazard, but was far from complimentary of the Real Madrid forward’s work ethic, while insisting Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was the hardest working. Hazard’s start to life in Spain has not gone to plan, with injuries hampering his progress. Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has questioned the fitness work Hazard has put in earlier this month, with former teammate Mikel the latest to question Hazard’s methods. “The laziest player I have played alongside is Eden Hazard,” Mikel told beIN Sports in Turkey. “Hazard has an incredible talent, maybe not as good as [Lionel] Messi, but he can do whatever he wants with the ball at his feet. “He didn’t like to train hard. While we were working he was waiting for us to finish training just standing there. But on Sundays he was always man of the match, it was unbelievable.” When asked who the hardest working player he’s played alongside was he said “Frank Lampard,” with no hesitation whatsoever.Tags: Arsene WengerChelsea FCEden HazardFrank LampardJohn Obi Mikel
Viztoria returned to winning ways with an impressive success in the Go Racing In Kildare Waterford Testimonial Stakes at the Curragh. Eddie Lynam’s classy four-year-old remains lightly raced and was having her first run since finishing down the field in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville in August. Dropping markedly in class to Listed level, the 15-8 favourite arrived on the scene full of running under Pat Smullen two out and quickly accounted for An Saighdiur, who had cut out the pace in company with Tylery Wonder. Press Association McCreery said: “She had to do the donkey work at Roscommon, but Leigh was able to sit in today and she did it well. The bit of experience helped her. I don’t know if she will run again this year. She had a mid-season break which helped her, and we’ll have to see if there is anything for her.” Fastnet Mist rewarded favourite-backers in the Irish Field EBF Fillies Maiden. The David Wachman-trained three-year-old was breaking her duck at the sixth attempt as she stayed on well to hold the determined challenge of Diylawa by a neck. Winning rider Wayne Lordan said of the 11-8 winner: “She was entitled to win that. The filly that beat her in Killarney has been Listed-placed twice since. The nine furlongs suited her, but she has the pace for a mile. I’d be very hopeful that she can pick up some black type next year.” She soon put the race to bed when asked, going three lengths clear of stablemate Gathering Power, who ran a good race in second. Lynam said: “It’s great to have a good horse, but even better to have a good owner. They have been very patient, and that’s the first time in a long time that she’s had her ground. There has been no problem, we have just been waiting on the ground. “She ran on very bad ground in France and ran poorly. We never found a reason for it, but that’s the only blip on her CV. “She will go for the Champion Sprint (at Ascot) next Saturday, and is entitled to take her chance.” Devonshire, sporting the famous maroon and white silks of Sheikh Mohammed, came with a strong late run to open her account at the fifth time of asking in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden. The Fast Company youngster was produced from off the pace to challenge deep inside the final furlong. Private Paradise and Corail were involved in a battle for the lead, but neither had an answer to Leigh Roche on the Willie McCreery-trained filly, who pulled half a length clear of Corail. Often, a half-sister to Giant’s Causeway, made a pleasing debut just behind the placed horses, but favourite New Alliance sadly broke down.

Assistant City Editor Julie Yamamoto contributed to this report. This article was originally published May 4, 1992, in a special edition of the Daily Trojan. The city will remember the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles riots on April 29. The university campus has suffered minimal damage from the riots of the past three days, University Security officials said Sunday.The efforts of all university agencies and officials — from security to Physical Plant to President Sample — have resulted in a very low number of injuries to students and little property damage to off-campus apartments.The campus has suffered only two minor fires, one extinguished by Security, the other put out by a student.Eleven students have been injured or arrested in the rioting, Security reports said. No students have been injured seriously, but a local man was shot in the leg on Exposition Boulevard in front of Parkside Apartments Wednesday night.Students were evacuated from their apartments north of campus due to power outages, and some property damage has been reported at Regal Trojan Apartments and buildings on 27th Street, but the extent of the damage has not yet been confirmed.“Rooms are open, doors have been pried open … reports should be trickling in today, with students coming back and finals scheduled for Monday,” said Sgt. John Lewis of University Security.Power was restored by the Department of Water and Power as of 11 a.m. Sunday morning, Lewis said.“I got my TV, my phone and my answering machine stolen,” said Brandon Bandhauer, a junior majoring in creative writing and biology who lives in Regal Trojan.“But it looks like we were not the only ones who got anything stolen,” he said. “Other screens have been pulled off, but our windows don’t lock properly, and that’s how they got in.”“The university is very fortunate that there has been no significant damage,” Lewis said. “The damage has been nothing even close to the magnitude on the street.”“I’m amazed that not one thing has happened,” Lt. David Ritch said. “Physical Plant, Safety … all service are really networking together.”Administrators have taken an active role in trying to assess the situation. President Steven Sample and other top administrators have been on campus throughout the crisis.Sample fielded phone calls to his office that threatened to “burn USC down.”Sample and James Dennis, vice president of Student Affairs, stayed on campus with the command center until the end of last week. They also ate at EVK Dining Hall with students and faculty, many of whom had been evacuated from their normal residences.Sample also rode along with Ritch on a routine security patrol Thursday.“Everything seemed calm,” Ritch said. “But then we drove into the worst looting I’d seen. People were jumping over the hood of the car. I had my gun in my hand. I’m a Vietnam vet, and this was pretty bad.”Ritch said that Sample’s eyes were as big as his head.The fires reported on campus were minor.A fire in a dumpster near the construction site behind Bovard Administration Building was put out by security on Wednesday night, according to Ritch.“We put it out with extinguishers from our vehicles, and we got every fire extinguisher out of the new part of Bovard,” Ritch said.An officer remained on the scene after the fire was put out and poured water on the smoldering dumpster with a garden hose found among the construction equipment until all the embers had been extinguished, Ritch said.“We now have a pickup truck full of every fire extinguisher we could get our hands on in case something else happens,” Ritch said.A student also put out a small fire in Grace Ford Salvatori Hall.Greg Sandoval, a senior majoring in creative writing, was walking by the building, saw the small blaze and extinguished it by beating it out with his backpack.“I rushed in to find a stack of College U. newspapers completely ablaze,” Sandoval said.“I tried to stomp it out, but then had to beat it out with my backpack,” he said.Sandoval said he had the fire almost extinguished when University Security officers arrived and put it out with fire extinguishersLewis said no students were seriously injured during the riots that followed Wednesday’s announcement of the acquittal of the four police officers accused of using excessive force on Rodney King.A male student was jumped Wednesday night at 7 p.m. while biking down 35th Street west of Hoover, Lewis said.“A suspect pulled him off his bike and then a group of teenagers arrived and kicked and beat him on the ground,” Lewis said.The student suffered a cut under his left eye that required five stitches, and his face was swollen, Lewis said. He also sprained his left wrist.At roughly 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, a local man was shot in a drive-by shooting in front of the fence on Exposition across from “A” building at Parkside Apartments.The man was wounded in the leg, and about 10 shots were fired, according to eyewitnesses at Parkside.Security responded immediately and stabilized the man’s condition with first aid, Ritch said.“We waited 40 minutes for an ambulance, but no one came,” he said. “So we commandeered the Escort van, moved the seats, and took him to California Hospital in the van.”Neither Ritch nor Lewis knew the man’s condition Sunday.On Thursday at 10:25 p.m., two male students were attacked by looters at 36th Place and Vermont Avenue as they tried to collect their parked car. Security officers saw the looters jump the students and responded in force.“They were rescued by security,” Lewis said. “We stabilized the situation, and the students took off in their car.”One student was bleeding from the mouth, Lewis said, but he did not know of any other injuries.At 11:15 a.m. the same day, a female student was pulled from her car in front of her carport at 1226 30th Place, Lewis said.The student was shaken up, but unharmed, and the suspect drove off with her car west on 30th and then turned north on Vermont. The car has not been recovered.On Friday at 9:15 p.m., three male students were pulled out of their car by National Guard troops in front of the Burger King next to Fire station 15 on Jefferson, Lewis said.Apparently, the students had driven by the station two to three times very slowly, then parked their car in front of the Burger King and turned their lights off.National Guard troops surrounded the car and forced the students to sit on the curb with their hands on their heads at gunpoint. Security arrived and searched the car, Lewis said.“They found a large ‘Rambo’ knife in the front seat,” Lewis said. “In the trunk were three handguns in holsters — a .22 semi-automatic, and .22 revolver and a .38 revolver.”“The students were apparently ‘videotaping the unrest,’” Lewis said. “The weapons were booked at Southwest Division.” The students received a reprimand for breaking the curfew.Four students were also arrested for looting, Ritch said, but only one was booked.A robbery at 11 a.m. at 1186 W. 27th St. caused $5,000 worth of property damage Saturday, Lewis said.Rumors abound about other campus disturbances.Two students were allegedly beaten up in the Century Apartments parking lot, but security could not confirm the reports. The Office of Residential and Greek Life had heard the rumor, but also could not confirm the beatings.Some students were also taking matters into their own hands.Armed students were stopped by security while patrolling Troyland Apartments on Thursday.Fraternity members said they stayed around to protect their house and the Row throughout the rioting.The members were armed with a variety of guns, from shotguns to 9mm Beretta pistols.“All my stuff is here,” a fraternity member said. “We have veterans of Desert Storm in our house, and we’re letting them handle it. All the houses on the Row have guns.”“We almost got involved in a drive-by when a car drove up and they saw my pistol sticking out of my pants,” he added.“The car drove by, stopped, and they saw my gun where my shirt had come up and then they threw the car into reverse. Guns came out the windows and we drove behind the planter. They yelled at us and drove off,” he said.Ritch said that he couldn’t blame fraternity members for being armed, but said that the penalties would be severe if the members were caught with weapons. He had not heard of any incidents on the Row.Other incidents included damage to cars parked around the campus and several arrests of suspects in parking structures and on campus. But Lewis was amazed at the lack of significant injuries and damage.“We owe a lot to the high presence of our people,” he said.“Anyone came on campus, we put the jam on them,” Lewis said.

He has some momentum on the Dodgers’ roster as well. Forsythe will be back Tuesday but Turner’s injury means Taylor will stick around and have “split duties” at second base with Chase Utley.“He’s been called on heavily and he’s been productive,” Roberts said of Taylor. “When guys are called on and they produce, they’re going to get more opportunities.”Puig statusRight fielder Yasiel Puig was not in the starting lineup Saturday for only the third time in the Dodgers’ first 44 games. Puig left Friday’s game after experiencing discomfort in his back during an at-bat that ended in a walk.Roberts said Puig was feeling better Saturday and was out of the lineup “to be cautious” but he was available to come off the bench and play defense or pinch-hit. The injury does not appear to be serious enough for a DL move.“From the way he felt and in talking to the trainers, no,” Roberts said.AftermathBoth benches cleared in the ninth inning of Friday’s game after Marlins reliever A.J. Ramos and Dodgers reliever Ross Stripling delivered dueling brushback pitches. In the ensuing scrum, Marlins manager Don Mattingly was the hottest property, going after Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren.After the game, Mattingly was still visibly upset and objected to Corey Seager swinging at a 3-and-0 pitch with the Dodgers leading 5-0 in the seventh inning as somehow inappropriate.Roberts said he gave Seager the green light in that situation and wasn’t aware Mattingly was upset about it until hearing about his post-game comments.“If it were switched and the tables turned, I wouldn’t have any objection to them swinging 3-0,” Roberts said. “There is a point where guys interpret unwritten rules in different ways.”Roberts cited the game in Colorado last week when the Dodgers fell behind 10-0 early but wound up getting the tying run to the plate in the ninth inning before losing, 10-7.“I encourage my guys to keep playing,” he said.AlsoForsythe had a single and three walks in his rehab game for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday and was scheduled to play seven innings at third base again Saturday. The Dodgers plan to activate Forsythe from the DL Tuesday and use him to replace Justin Turner at third base. Since Turner went on the DL with a hamstring injury suffered Thursday, Kiké Hernandez and Taylor have each started one game at third base for the Dodgers. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> After getting a taste of the big leagues – but only a taste – for the third consecutive year last season, Chris Taylor decided it was time for a change.The Dodgers’ infielder saw “some of the adjustments other players have made that have kind of turned their careers around” and figured maybe that’s what he needed to do as well.“Justin Turner is a good example,” Taylor said this spring. “He’s a guy that was up and down from Triple-A for awhile. He made a big swing change and now he’s one of the best third basemen in the game.”Taylor made his change over the winter, working with hitting consultant Robert Van Scoyoc in Arizona. He added a leg kick, adjusted his hands and, perhaps most importantly, adopted a change in philosophy. “I’m looking to drive the ball and do damage where last year and pretty much my whole life I’ve tried to put the ball on the ground,” Taylor said.He was one of the Dodgers’ hottest hitters during spring training and hasn’t stopped since. Promoted from Triple-A in April when Logan Forsythe went to the DL, Taylor went into Saturday’s game hitting .346 with a team-high 1.054 OPS thanks to 10 extra-base hits (including five home runs in just 78 at-bats) and 15 walks.“I feel really good,” Taylor said of his new approach at the plate. “It’s a combination of my swing mechanics being sound right now and my confidence is there. When your confidence is there, sometimes you get in a groove and the game slows down. That’s the way it’s felt for me.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he sees better plate coverage from Taylor with his new swing and “he’s catching up to more pitches” compared to last year when his swing was “a little loopy.” Taylor readily acknowledges all those points.“I’m getting to fastballs better,” he said. “Last year there were times, I was getting beat by fastballs and that made me have to cheat which made me vulnerable to off-speed (pitches). I think my bat speed is better and I have a little more momentum with the barrel.”
The twenty-fourth day from LaLiga SmartBank He had eleven protagonists that we detail below. Sabin Merino (Deportivo) scored his second goal in two games with his new team. Herrera (Lugo) and Ibra (Oviedo) were fundamental with their goals. Pomares (Alcorcón) was the most detailed defender of the day.GoalkeeperDani Jiménez (Alcorcón) Alcorcón accumulates more than two months without winning and the situation begins to be worrying. Before Elche, the Madrid team had a bad time, especially when he stayed with one player less for Laure’s expulsion. However, throughout the game the figure of Dani Jiménez emerged. The goal made four stops, (two from within the small area), to save a point.DefensesSaveljich (Lightning) Oviedo is still struggling not to fall into the well of the red lantern from which Galicians from Deportivo already appear. Ibra was the ‘guilty’ of another halo of hope for carbayones. The Senegalese jumped to the pitch in 67 ‘and changed his face to his own. In addition, he put the equalizer with a great goal of area forward.Sabin Merino (Sports) He left the field in the second half in place of the injured Milic and his performance was essential to rescue a point of El Toralín. At 17 minutes from the end he went ahead to Gazzaniga in a center to the Embarba area, and with his head, put the equalized. He already has three goals this season.Spanish (Numancia) The Elche defender opened his scoring account this season with a goal against Alcorcón. In his goal he was ready, picking up a rebound after a previous shot by Folch to the post. In addition to scoring the only goal of his team, he stood out in defense, where he barely made mistakes and had a 74.2% success in the pass.Pomares (Alcorcón) The proper name, along with coach Fernando Vázquez, of this resurgence of Coruña. The Basque has scored two goals in the two games he has been wearing the blue and white jacket of Deportivo. So many that are worth gold when approaching the goal of permanence. His goal against Cádiz, only against goalkeeper Cifuentes, speaks very well of the ability to define the attacker. MidfieldersGaku (Sports) This Deportivo is rising from the hand of some signings that are finally giving the level that is presupposed to them.Gaku is one of them. Before Cádiz, the Japanese was the helm of the Coruña. Quality, game vision and abundant talent in its performance. His was the assistance in the goal of Sabin Merino, tense, measured and at the exact moment.Curro (Numancia) The Lugo can breathe easy this week. Their victory against Granada makes them sleep outside the descent. Victoria worked, suffered and heart for their fans. The Lucense man-goal, Christian Herrera, again made an appearance in this vital duel. The striker caught a dead ball in the middle of the second half and did justice in the Anxo Carro.Ibra (Oviedo) This Numancia is surprising its own and strangers with its great season. The Sorianos, who in summer had as their main objective to avoid the descent, have settled in the playoff. His player Curro is one of the protagonists of this great team. His performance against Sporting, outstanding. Assistance to Higinio and volley to sentence.Benito (Las Palmas) The goal of the Alcorcón tie also had a defensive flavor. Very complete game of the versatile player. With 0-0 on the scoreboard, he was about to score, in a play he cooked himself (with a ball recovery), and then put Badía to the test. In the second part did not fail: Sosa’s great pass and better definition of the side. A fixed in the eleven of the Numancia in the last four days and in ascending progress. Before Sporting, Adri Castellano played one of his best games. The central appeared everywhere. In attack he had two occasions, one ended up inside but the VAR ended up canceling it. In defense it was shown without errors: six clearance, one interception and one blocked shot.Dani Calvo (Elche) Las Palmas is a team full of talent in attack and weaknesses in defense. The visit to El Sardinero gave a good example of this. However, in the Canarian bonanza there is a player who shined more than anyone, Benito. The end was the catalyst for all of Mel’s danger and tied for his own in the 90’s, with a missile to the right squad.StrikersHerrera (Lugo)

John McCain criticized Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton’s move to repeal congressional authorization for the Iraq war, saying it’s “the worst possible idea that anybody could have.” Speaking to reporters after a town hall meeting Saturday in Reno, McCain said the new war strategy announced by President Bush in January is beginning to show “some success” and should be given a chance to succeed. “I think it’s a bad idea for us to again tie up the United States Senate in something that won’t be successful,” McCain said. “I think it again perhaps will send the wrong signal to our men and women who are trying to succeed over there. “I just think it’s the worst possible idea that anybody could have,” he added. “I’ll do everything in my power to see that it doesn’t succeed.” The Republican presidential candidate’s criticism came two days after Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate, joined legislation that would require Bush to seek new authority from Congress to extend the conflict beyond Oct. 11, 2007. McCain, whose meeting was dominated by questions about Iraq and immigration, said he hopes the buildup of 21,500 more U.S. troops in Iraq will give the Iraqis time to mend sectarian fractures within the government and resolve other reconciliation issues. The Arizona senator insisted security around Baghdad has improved and that the U.S. is dealing better with improvised explosive devices. But he acknowledged suicide bombings are on the upswing and insurgents are moving outside Baghdad. “(The insurgents) are by no means subdued and they are continuously supplied from Iran and Syria,” he said. “But I do believe now we have an opportunity to succeed. There’s some good news, not a lot, but there’s some good news already out of Iraq.”
