first_img Claude Puel’s side triumphed at the Riverside Stadium 1 Southampton emerged victorious from a lifeless clash at relegated Middlesbrough, where disillusioned fans made their anger clear as the Riverside bid a meek farewell to Premier League football.Boro’s return to the Championship was confirmed by Monday’s defeat at champions Chelsea and their final top-flight home match brought precious little relief.Under-fire Claude Puel’s much-changed Southampton side secured a 2-1 win on Teesside, where the home faithful resorted to gallows humour to underline their anger at their side’s latest underwhelming display.Boro’s much-loved chairman Steve Gibson faces a big decision on whether to retain Steve Agnew as head coach after failing to spark a late-season revival following the March departure of Aitor Karanka.The Spaniard’s name was chanted by Boro fans after Southampton substitute Nathan Redmond scored a goal just as impressive as Jay Rodriguez’s first-half effort.The visitors’ second led things to unravel off the field, with goalkeeping coach Leo Percovich gesticulating wildly in the technical area before Boro fans urged Anthony Taylor to send off their own goalkeeper Brad Guzan after giving away a penalty.That plea was ignored and instead the home faithful cheered wildly as Shane Long blazed over the spot-kick – celebrations matched when Patrick Bamford scored his first goal in 760 days.It was a consolation goal in a match that underlined the issues faced at the Riverside Stadium.The first half was without rhythm, excitement or clear-cut opportunities – little surprise given how little this match meant to either side.It took 23 minutes for Ryan Bertrand to get away the first noteworthy shot. In keeping with the start, it was poor.Fraser Forster comfortably dealt with a long-range effort from Boro forward Bamford shortly afterwards, before George Friend headed wide.That was the hosts’ best chance of a drab first half in which Maya Yoshida’s tame header brought ironic cheers from the hardy away support.There was precious little else to take joy from until the 42nd minute when, out of nowhere, Saints clicked in style.Long chased Jordy Clasie’s ball down the right flank and sent in a cross that Rodriguez met with a superb volleyed effort.It was the only moment of quality in a half that ended with boos echoing around the Riverside.Adam Forshaw saw a shot deflected wide and Bamford mishit when play resumed, but things would soon get worse for the hosts.Shambolic defending meant Redmond was unmarked, with the substitute cutting inside before unleashing a fine strike into the top corner.More boos echoed around the Riverside as pockets of fans began to chant former manager Karanka’s name, with goalkeeping coach Percovich geeing up the fans and appearing to gesture he wants to stay at the club with Agnew.Things were unravelling and could have got worse when Guzan brought down Long, with some Boro supporters urging referee Taylor to send off the American. The request was ignored and Long fired over the resulting spot-kick.A strange afternoon continued as Bamford headed home his first goal since April 2015, wildly celebrating a goal far more important individually than collectively.Charlie Austin returned after injury late in a match that petered out, with former Southampton defender Calum Chambers and Rodriguez coming close late on.In keeping with a peculiar afternoon, jeers at the final whistle were followed by applause during Boro’s lap of appreciation.last_img read more

United knockout round match did not disappoint.Catch up on all the action with 90 in 90 Highlights ⬇️— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) November 2, 2018When Rooney joined the team from Everton in the summer, they were bottom of the Eastern Conference and the 33-year-old said: “It’s disappointing to lose on penalties but as a team we can be extremely proud of what we have achieved in the last few months.“Really we had no right to make the play-offs. To do that we have brought belief back to the fans, the team and we have to build on that.”In America, Rooney has scored 12 goals in 22 games and created six. The former England captain took the first spot kick after the match ended 2-2 in extra-time, but his shot was saved by Zack Steffen.Luciano Acosta and Nick DeLeon also missed from the spot as DC lost the shoot-out 3-2.Earlier, DeLeon had scored in the 116th minute to send the game to penalties.

first_imgNAOMH CONAILL 0-6  ST EUNANS 0-4 It’s anybody’s county final as St Eunans and Naomh Conaill battle it out for the Dr Maguire Cup in Ballybofey.The Glenties side have gone in ahead at the break but it’s an extremely close game.The Letterkenny side have been on top for some spells but have been guilty of wasting a number of kickable scores. Many thought it was St Eunans who had the better team going into this game and they indeed may have the stronger panel.But you can never bet against a team who have the likes of Dermot Molloy, Leo McLoone, Darragh Gallagher and Anthony Thompson.Despite being 0-3 to 0-1 down in the early stages, Glenties managed to chip back at St Eunans lead.The Eunans defence could be accused of givng away needless free kicks which the likes of Gallagher and Molloy have capitalised on. Eunans are wearing black armbands in honour of Elaine Winston-Friel, a stalwart and supporter of the club who died yesterday aged just 31.It’s all to play for in the second half.  COUNTY FINAL HALF-TIME – NAOMH CONAILL AHEAD IN NIP AND TUCK ENCOUNTER was last modified: November 4th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgBayern face Liverpool in the Champions league next week (Agency Photo)Defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have a glorious chance to move within two points of leaders Borussia Dortmund when they face Augsburg on Friday night.Last weekend Robert Kovac’s Red Devils beat Schalke 3-1 to take full advantage of Dortmund’s 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim to cut gap between the top two to five points.Augsburg are tricky opponents who held the Bavarians to a surprise one-all draw in the reverse fixture. Kovac is therefore likely to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes despite having one eye on next week’s Champions League tie with fellow five time European champions Liverpool.Long serving keeper and skipper Manuel Neuer and French midfielder Corentin Toliso are the only Bayern Munich players unavailable for selection. Dutch winger Arjen Robben – playing in his last season in Germany before moving to the American MLS – has returned to full training whereas Neuer has already confirmed his availability for the game at Anfield.Pacesetters Dortmund are not in action until Monday when they travel to bottom club Nuremberg. Lucien Favre’s free scoring Black and Yellows have dropped points in two of their last three games but are overwhelming favourites to recuperate in time from Wednesday’s Champions League tie at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspur, to put Nuremberg to the sword.Third placed Borussia Monchengladbach meanwhile face a difficult trip to Eintracht Frankfurt.Dieter Hecking’s high flyers got a reality check last Saturday when they were ambushed 3-0 by Hertha Berlin, a result that put paid to their twelve-match winning streak at Borussia Park.Gladbach will be hoping Frankfurt are still fatigued by Thursday’s Europa League tie at Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk.Peter Boaz’s red-hot Bayer Leverkusen start as strong favourites to topple newcomers Fortuna Düsseldorf.Leverkusen are the division’s top performers since the end of the winter break. They are averaging over three goals per game, having followed up an earth shattering 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich by putting five past Mainz.FRIDAY:Augsburg v Bayern MunichSATURDAY:Hertha Berlin v Werder BremenHoffenheim v HannoverSchalke v FreiburgStuttgart v RB LeipzigWolfsburg v MainzHertha Berlin v Werder BremenSUNDAY:Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia MoenchengladbachBayer Leverkusen v Fortuna DüsseldorfMONDAY:Nuremberg v Borussia DortmundComments Tags: German Bundesligatoplast_img read more
