Bournemouth 2-1 Manchester United: Josh King goal sends Cherries into dreamland

first_img Josh King celebrates his winner 1 Josh King scored against his former club as Bournemouth followed up victory over Chelsea by beating Manchester United at Dean Court.Junior Stansilas opened the scoring directly from a corner after little more than 90 seconds.Marouane Fellaini then drew the game level with a scrappy equaliser before half time.However, King settled the game with a goal which United will be disappointed to concede, meaning Louis van Gaal’s side have now gone five games without a win in all competitions.Both of Manchester United’s full backs Guillermo Varela and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson were making their first Premier League starts in a depleted defence which had been so solid this season.It was an incredible start to the game when, after only two minutes, Stanislas whipped a right-footed corner straight over the head of David De Gea to give Bournemouth the lead.United nearly fired straight back with a goal of their own but they were twice denied as Artur Boruc pulled off two point-blank saves from Fellaini and Paddy McNair.Van Gaal’s injury list got longer midway through the first half when Jesse Lingard limped off to join the likes of Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney on the treatment table.Anthony Martial should have equalised on 18 minutes when he was gifted the ball on the edge of the box but he sloppily dragged his shot wide of Boruc’s right hand post.De Gea then made a world-class stop of his own to deny King when the former Manchester United youth prospect tried to round the goalkeeper.The Red Devils were finally level on 23 minutes when Memphis Depay did well to take the high ball down on his chest before seeing his shot saved, only for Fellaini to bundle in the rebound while standing on his knees.However, eight minutes into the second half and the Cherries were ahead again and again it was from a corner.The ball was fired in low and King peeled away on the edge of the six-yard box to stroke home against his old club.Glenn Murray really should have settled the game when he waltzed through the United defence but, with only De Gea to beat, the former Crystal Palace man inexplicably launched the ball into space.Martial nearly grabbed an equaliser as the game wore on as he jinked through the Bournemouth defence with bodies flying at his feet to try and halt him before, like Murray, he scooped the ball over the bar.Bournemouth looked the more likely of either side to get the fourth goal of the evening but it remained 2-1 to give the Cherries only their second win in 10 Premier League games.last_img read more

Hartlepool sack manager Ronnie Moore

first_img Ronnie Moore 1 Ronnie Moore has left League Two strugglers Hartlepool less than ten months after guiding them to a remarkable great escape.The club announced on Wednesday afternoon that Moore had gone by mutual consent after Tuesday night’s 2-1 home defeat to Stevenage left them just one place and four points above the relegation zone.In a statement released via the club’s official website chairman Gary Coxall said: “This is an extremely difficult decision, but one we feel is right for the football club.“Ronnie has worked tirelessly to bring success to the club during his time at The Vic and we thank him sincerely for those efforts and wish him well for the future.”Moore, 63, arrived at Victoria Park in December 2014 with Pool at the bottom of the Football League and six points adrift of safety.The club won nine and drew six of their final 26 games last season, culminating in a 2-1 home victory over Exeter on April 25 to finish in 22nd place, four points clear of trouble.last_img read more

Restoration gains funds

first_imgLA MIRADA – It looks like the city might have enough money to get started on refurbishing the Neff Estate Historical Site. The City Council recently allocated $150,000 of federal Community Development Block Grant money to the project. In addition, the city already has a $176,000 grant and a $500,000 bequest from the late Mina Neff. “That gives us the ability to do the next phase of restoration,” said Tom Robinson, director of community services. “We’re trying to assemble sufficient funds to pay for improvements to restore the historic site.” More federal money could be available in the future, Robinson said. For years, the George house – the oldest of the three buildings – wasn’t open to the public. It was built in 1885 and served as the foreman’s residence from 1914-1964. The barn and the Neff house were built in 1893. The Neff barn needs painting and wood repair. Officials also need to make sure the Neff house’s roof and structure are sound, Robinson said. The first step will be to hire a consultant – probably in the next few months – to guide city officials on specifics of what needs to be done, Robinson said. Former La Mirada Councilman Dave Peters said it’s good news that work will be done on the Neff property. “This is a step in the direction of preservation,” Peters said. “(The property) harkens back to a day when there was no running water, electricity, refrigerators or any of the amenities we enjoy today.” mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Neff house was the home of William and Mina Neff. William Neff was the grandson of Andrew McNally, founder and president of Rand McNally Publishing Co. The George house was the caretaker’s residence. McNally in 1888 purchased nearly 2,300 acres of rangeland and named the area La Mirada, which in Spanish means “The View.” He later turned the property over to his nanny and her husband, Edwin Neff. The biggest body of work is slated for the George house, which needs to be made handicapped-accessible and have its 1960s kitchen restored to the proper period, he added. last_img read more

Divorces that don’t end in discontent

first_imgNEW YORK – Yet many couples are embracing the approach, recently endorsed by the American Bar Association, as part of a broader quest to find more civilized, efficient ways to end a marriage. Do-it-yourself divorces and mediation also are popular options. Lawyers by the thousands want to be part of the trend. “Most of us had that moment where we realize the adversarial process is so damaging for our clients – and there’s a recognition that we can do better,” said Talia Katz, a former divorce lawyer who is executive director of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. Katz said the academy, just eight years old, now has 3,000 members, mostly lawyers but also financial planners and other professionals. She estimates that 20,000 attorneys have received training in collaborative law, and groups promoting the practice are active nationwide. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champIn contrast to mediation, in which divorcing couples entrust a resolution to a single neutral mediator, collaborative divorce involves the use of attorneys for each party, often joined by other expert consultants. But the lawyers, instead of sparring, pledge from the outset to work together in crafting an outcome that is fair to all. “Most clients in a dispute are looking for an honorable peace, not war,” Boston lawyer David Hoffman wrote in recent op-ed for The Christian Science Monitor. “Collaborative lawyers can be just as zealous about seeking such a peace as litigators are about victory in the courtroom.” Hoffman works at the Boston Law Collaborative, where the staff includes a psychologist and a financial planner. It offers divorcing couples a range of options, including mediation and collaborative divorce, as well as conventional litigation. The firm analyzed 199 of its recent divorce cases, and found that mediation, collaborative divorce and litigation all produced high rates of successful settlement. Mediation was by far the least expensive option, with a median cost of $6,600, compared with $19,723 for a collaborative divorce, $26,830 for settlements negotiated by rival lawyers, and $77,746 for full-scale litigation. Sarah Smith, 47, of Sudbury, Mass., said she and her ex-husband, David Boyle, were able to complete a swift collaborative divorce two years ago for roughly $5,000. “It was definitely the way to go in our situation – we didn’t have piles of anger about each other, and we also didn’t have piles of money,” Smith said. “Our main concern was the welfare of the kids. “We both liked both lawyers,” Smith said. “As a group, we had some laughs together, and that made it nicer.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In total, this seems to be a recipe for a massive structural deficit for years to come. Of course, this being an election year, we shouldn’t be surprised. But politics aside, the state’s leaders have a responsibility to manage the public’s money wisely. In subsequent revisions, both Schwarzenegger and Sacramento’s legislative leaders are going to need to get tough and practical in devising a spending plan that truly does put California on the path to fiscal responsibility. “This budget continues California on the path of fiscal responsibility and economic recovery.” So says Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of the first draft of his new $125.6 billion budget, which includes a spending increase of 7 percent. We hope he’s right, but upon first glance, the numbers don’t seem too promising. Schwarzenegger has increased spending across the board, while remaining resolute in his opposition to tax hikes. He manages to balance the books by taking funds from this year’s surplus, but that’s one-time money, and the new spending he backs is programmatic, meaning it will be with us forever. Isn’t this the kind of financial planning that got Gray Davis into trouble? last_img read more

Buffalo stampedes Kings

first_imgBUFFALO, N.Y. – Excuse rookie forward Jason Pominville for not remembering the last time the Buffalo Sabres scored 10 goals. It hasn’t happened in almost 13 years, when Pominville was a 10-year-old growing up in Quebec. He won’t forget this one. Pominville, with a natural hat trick, and Jochen Hecht scored three goals apiece in Buffalo’s 10-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. Jeff Cowan, scoring late in the first period, had the lone goal for the Kings, who gave up 10 goals for the first time since a 10-3 loss to Washington on Feb. 13, 1993. The margin of defeat matched the Kings’ worst since a 9-0 loss to Montreal in the 1975-76 season opener. “They walked all over us,” Kings captain Mattias Norstrom said. “A loss like this you start to talk about pride. As a team, as individuals, we got embarrassed out there.” Goalie Mathieu Garon, coming off a 6-0 win at Boston on Thursday night, had the toughest night. Garon allowed four goals on 10 shots and was pulled twice, the final time after Hecht scored on a screened shot from the right circle midway through the first period. Drury made sure to remind everyone that this was only one game, while noting the Sabres prepare to open a six-game road swing, their longest of the season. “It’s nothing to gloat about,” Drury said. “It’s two points and we’ll move on.” It didn’t help that the Kings are a banged up team. Pavol Demitra missed his fourth game with a leg injury while Lubomir Visnovsky, second among NHL defenseman with 45 points (13 goals and 32 assists), did not play because of flu-like symptoms. No excuses, Kings coach Andy Murray said, who did not address his team after the game. “I said most of my things after the first and second periods,” Murray said. “I said my piece and it was time for them to come up with an explanation. … We just weren’t very good.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

So it’s fun to see the team work hard and have it finally pay off.” Hecht also will have fond memories of the game after recording the first career three-goal game in his six-year NHL career “Happy to get it out of the way, but it’s also great for `Pommer’ to get his first one, too,” Hecht said. Chris Drury had a goal and three assists, Ales Kotalik had a goal and two assists and Jay McKee and Daniel Paille also scored. Tim Connolly and Mike Grier had three assists each for Buffalo, which built a 5-0 lead 17 minutes in. The 10 goals were the most the Sabres scored since a 10-7 win over Detroit on Feb 24, 1993. The Sabres also snapped a two-game winless streak (0-1-1), their longest since losing four straight from Nov. 2-9. last_img
