Cech in social media spat with Bayer Leverkusen

first_imgBut the former Chelsea star almost scored one of the most embarrassing own goals of all-time in Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat against the Premier League champions.Cech attempted a pass across the face of his own goal that almost crept into his unguarded goal to the horror of new Arsenal boss Unai Emery.Leverkusen’s English account picked up on Cech’s narrow escape, replying to one tweet highlighting the error.“We might know a guy…” they tweeted, seemingly suggesting their former number one Leno would be more adept at implementing Emery’s vision of passing out from the defence.That was followed by a video of Leno playing out from the back in a game for the German side, with the caption: “In case you were all wondering how to play out from the back…”Retweeted over 2,200 times, plenty of supporters of both clubs found the reply humorous, but Cech took to Twitter to post a reply on Monday evening, criticising the post.“@Arsenal we share important values which make us a big club not only on the football side. Fair competition, professionalism and sportsmanship are the biggest ones you teach young footballers and it’s sad to see when other clubs don’t share the same values. @bayer04_en ,” Cech wrote.Leverkusen’s account replied to Cech’s tweet soon after – saying their original “joke” had been taken more personally than it should have been.It read: “Hi Petr. It seems our joke about wanting to see Leno, our former player, in action has been taken a bit more harshly/personally than intended. It was only a bit of banter. We’re all for the values you’ve stated and wish you and your big club all the best.

Yagman could be sentenced to prison today

Venice civil rights attorney Stephen Yagman, who often sparred with the Los Angeles Police Department and represented unpopular defendants, could be sentenced by a federal judge today for tax evasion and other offenses. Yagman, 63, was convicted by a jury in June of 19 felonies, including bankruptcy fraud and 17 counts of money laundering. He has been free on $100,000 bond. At yesterday’s four-hour, 30-minute sentencing hearing, Yagman portrayed himself as a remorseful, yet sloppy lawyer, blaming his criminal acts on pain medication and grief over his relatives’ deaths. Yagman said he thought it wasn’t a crime to file tax returns but not to pay taxes.

As a result, he didn’t pay the taxes he owed. “That was stupid,” Yagman said. “That was my fault.” The deaths of an aunt and uncle in late 1999 sent him into an emotional tailspin, leaving him unable to deal with his financial problems, he said.

Playing with the aid of a strong breeze it was the Donegal men who took an early lead. Club captain John Paul Byrne got the goal. Kilmacrennan equalised on thirty minutes when Timmy Burke scored. Cathal Gallagher got the winner on sixty five minutes. Both sides will contest the same Divisions as they did in the 2012/’13 season. Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionRathmullan Celtic 4 Glenea United 4Dara Patton who had the final say in the destination of the 2012/’13 Donegal League Premier Division title as he scored the equaliser for Rathmullan Celtic against Glenea United to leave the final score 4-4 when the sides met today at Flagpole Park. Picture by Gary Foy.An injury time equaliser from Darragh Gunnar Solskjaer broke Glenea United’s title dreams. The striker completed his hat-trick to level proceedings at 4-4 after an exhilarating affair at the Flagpole to deny Glenea a second consecutive title and hand the honours to Lifford Celtic who defeated Dunkineely Celtic 2-0 away to end a 40 year wait for glory.The defending champions Glenea got off to a dream start when Kevin Barry found the target after just two minutes to signal their intentions for the afternoon. Patton equalised in the 10th minute with a superlative free kick from 20 yards out into the top corner. Barry put the visitors ahead for the second time on twelve minutes when the striker took advantage of a goalmouth scramble following an in swinging Barry Mc Ginley free kick from the left wing.Cue the second half fireworks that ultimately would decide the destination of the title. Patton levelled proceedings to grab his second following a goal mouth scramble following on from a Paddy Sheridan free kick in the 50th minute. As tensions grew, Barry saw his strike from the edge of the area come crashing off the crossbar as Glenea pushed for that crucial lead that would put them in the driving seat. The Hoops talismanic centre-half Seany Barrett found himself inside the Glenea area following a corner kick which he duly drove home inside the area to give the Seasiders the lead on 60 minutes. The visitors pushed hard for an equaliser which they goton 70 minutes when Padraig Mc Gee scored from the penalty spot. The finale of finales unfolded as Glenea regained the lead. Michael Barry beat the Rathmullan off-side trap as he chased a long clearance. He got to the ball ahead of the outrushing Ian Strain. With the custodian committed Barry poked the ball into the unguarded net. The Hoops almost immediately pushed for an equaliser and with injury time almost up their star striker duly obliged with a typical goal scorer’s instinctive finish from inside the area following a corner kick. Four Four it ended, two hat-tricks, plenty of action, good attendance, this match had it all.Referee: Kevin LogueDunkineely Celtic 0 Lifford Celtic 2The was great tension in both camps as the final league game of the season unfolded at Darney Park. Both teams needed to win and hope results elsewhere went in their favour. Dunkineely playing with the strong breeze had the better of things in the opening half yet went in a goal down at half time. Playing some attractive football the home team created a number of chances but failed to convert them. Lifford took the lead on 37 minutes when a harmless looking cross from the right took a wicked bounce at the last moment and went past the keeper into the net. Despite this setback Dunkineely kept pressing and almost equalised when Shane Mc Whinnie’s shot, following a corner, was cleared off the line. Lifford pressed in the second half for a second goal to seal victory but good defending by Dunkineely kept them at bay. The home side found chances hard to come by against a well organised visiting defence and the nearest they came to scoring was when Patrick White’s shot was turned around the post by Lee White. Lifford got their second on 85 minutes when Jude Patton scored from close range.Both teams then had an anxious wait on results from elsewhere before the celebrations began for Lifford after a wait of 42 years. Dunkineely now face a playoff with Cranford on Sunday next in Ballyare to see which of them will be playing Premier Division football next season.St. Catherines 2 Lagan Harps 1St. Catherines played host to Lagan Harps on Sunday in Emerald Park. Both teams started the game very brightly and it was the Saints who took the lead on 19 minutes when Stephen Leslie swung the ball into the Lagan box and it was flicked on by Jason Noctor to Luke Kelly who put the ball into the Lagan net to put the Saints one up. On 30 minutes Daniel Breslin had a free kick from outside the box but it went over the bar. Then on 37 minutes Lagan had a good shot but it was well saved by the Saints keeper. Yet again Lagan had another headed chance but again it was well saved by the Saints keeper. Daniel Breslin had a shot that went just over the bar on 41 minutes. The 2nd half began with Lagan looking to get back on level terms and they started the sharper and they created a couple of chances but they came to nothing. On 55 minutes Lagan had another header that went just over the bar. Then in the 59th minute Lagan were given a free kick and it was put into the Saints box and it was headed into the Saints net to make the scoreline 1-1. Both teams pushed very hard to try and get the winning goal and on 81 minutes Daniel Breslin went down the line and put in a brilliant cross to the back post and there was Barry Cannon to head the ball into the Lagan net to make the score 2-1 to the Saints. In the final 9 minutes Lagan pushed the Saints hard to try and get level but the Saints defence held out and they went on to get the three points.Kilmacrennan Celtic 3 Castlefin Celtic 1Kilmac ended the season picking up 3 points by defeating Castlefin. In a game that was reversed to Castlefin, it was Kilmac who settled quickest. Kilmac almost opened the scoring on twenty minutes when Gavin Gorman crossed for the in-rushing Timmy Burke. The breakthrough came on the half hour when Ryan Shields crossed for Michael McLaughlin who scored from close range. Castlefin equalised when Liam McBride’s attempted clearance was mishit and somehow spun back into the net for the most freakish of goals.The second half was a lacklustre affair, it took a penalty save from Kilmac’s McBride to spur Kilmac into life with twenty minutes remaining. Kilmac took the lead five minutes later when Burke put Eddie Doherty through on goal. Doherty flicked the ball over the head of the out rushing Castlefin keeper and coolly headed in from ten yards. Doherty was involved in Kilmac’s third and final goal ten minutes later. His pin point cross was met on the volley by his brother Johnny for a spectacular finish to the game.Referee: Paddy MartinMilford United 0 Gweedore Celtic 1Milford lost to Gweedore in the final game of season. Milford dominated the first half with good chances through Cathal Mc Gettigan and Brendan Murray. Gweedore had good chance which was well stopped by Caolan Mc Gettigan.

first_imgBY NIAMH DAVIS: Ice or Heat? There is so much confusion about which one is best and when to use them.They both have been popular methods of treatment for adults and children but now there seems to be a big debate as to whether or not they are of any benefit.Ice is a mild, tablet free way to numb the pain of inflammation. It is important to take care when using ice, not to put it directly on the skin and only ice for up to 15 minutes every hour. If symptoms persist after 24-48 hours, then going to get it checked out would be your next point of call.It has always been used in conjunction with Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation (RICE) for any sprains or bumps that caused inflammation and it served its purpose.Research has developed over the past few years and showed that using that treatment method for longer than 48 hours is not always beneficial however.To rest a mild injury for too long will impair healing, if you can’t wait, get it seen to straight away, or take the joint or muscle through different planes of motion so that you do not lose the range you had prior to the injury. Ice baths/cryotherapy – This constricts blood vessels and decreases metabolic activity. When you get out of ice baths and the tissues then start to warm up, the blood flow returns quickly which is said to flush harmful metabolic debris out of your muscles.This is one of the reasons after a race if possible people jump into the sea or a lake, the cold water is said to aid recovery. For people who compete regularly or had a particularly hard training session then this method can be useful.Check how long a centre recommends using the ice baths and if it is your first time then do not use it for the full length of time.A lot of coaches and trainers would suggest this (cryotherapy) treatment for young athletes, aged 10 – 16. Personally, I would NOT recommend that. If there is inflammation, then by all means use ice but for young children, it may have side effects that are avoidable.Heat is another non-expensive treatment method that can work wonders for your muscles. It can be used for tired, achy muscles or mild stiffness and tightness. Whether it’s a hot water bottle, a microwavable heat pack or a nice warm shower the heat can even take the edge off some types of chronic pain. Hydrotherapy which is a heated pool, 34 degrees Celsius, can be great for relieving muscle pain and conditions such as arthritis.Some GPs even use it as an alternative to tablets. Heat is not suitable for open wounds or areas of inflammation and if used on a fresh injury can cause a lot more pain.Within reason, when it comes to ice or heat it is about what works for you but, as always, if in doubt you should ask a professional.It remains a highly debatable subject.

Birmingham ‘ready to sell keeper Foster for £4m’
