Bundesliga – Klinsmann's bad luck – Sport

Hertha loses leadership in Frankfurt

Jürgen Klinsmann narrowly missed the first victory in the second game as coach of Hertha BSC. The Berlin came to kick off the 14th match day of the Bundesliga Eintracht Frankfurt despite a 2: 0 lead only to a 2: 2 (1: 0) and remain in 16th place. After five recent defeats, Dodi Lukebakio (30th) and Marko Grujic (63rd) scored the Hertha goals. Martin Hinteregger (65) and substitute Sebastian Rode (86th) prevented the fourth Frankfurt league defeat in a row. In the pouring rain the shivering spectators saw a restrained beginning, but were reconciled with an exciting final phase. The Berlin showed promising approaches and were mainly defensive safer than against Dortmund, as it had been 0-2 after 20 minutes. The Eintracht was game-determining and had more ball possession. "We have to be disappointed," Rode said at the DAZN microphone: "The Hertha have two, three chances and make two goals, and in the end we're happy to have one point, but today should have been more."

Letters: The MSU keeps Clay Helton and readers continue to fight

So if a restaurant in a restaurant is sent a semi-baked dinner that is not badly prepared, is it satisfied with the cook and another reservation for the following week?

It seems to me that I intend to keep Helton Coach, Mike Bohn created that the USC athletics directors are not always on the sea in Troy! The same thing and expecting to define different results does not give a winning coach … or a strong athletic director, for that reason!

How should the USC keep a football coach with integrity, when a person from Urban Meyer is out there, waiting to win games at all?

USC fans re-establish themselves as the worst.

I have never been a USU fan, because I graduate of this football factory down the road at San Diego State.

But in the light of all the impartiality, all the glamor and lamentation for a good man like Helton Helton were kept as a supporter of Helton.

Jim B. Parsons


:: t

As a 1965 MSU graduate, I am suffering almost 54 years of rubbish as the USC is a football factory where academics take a back seat.

Meanwhile, the USC has emerged as a highly regarded academic institution, but the aura is still there. The right decision has been made by Bohn's Athletic director and President Folt. Hopefully, the point will come that academics come first and football is a fun but secondary element of college life. And these loyal, stable and enthusiastic employees will be retained.

P.T. Barnum was right. A sucker is born every minute. USC season ticket holders spent thousands of dollars in refurbishment fees for the Coliseum. In return, the university puts on our nose through Clay Helton. “S” on the MSU season ticket holders shirt certainly stands for “suckers.”

I'm not sure if the photo of Clay Helton on page one of the sports section was on a pre-conscious Thursday or a metaphor, and it seems to show the coach as a parade leader … without a stick! Is the parade going another way? Or is his team going the other way?

The LA Plasmake Sports Czar must be held. USC is asking as many questions as to probity and the honor and football is one. I mean not to go back to Pete Carroll's era and Reggie Bush. The USC does not have to be a great football school and a good university. It must be a great university with a team like football. The administration of the USC appears to be moving to restore the loss. Give them a chance.

Paul Atkinson

It is not important at all, Arash Markazi, for the USC president or HR to get the fingers of the fan base. Indeed, it would be a mistake.

After all the problems that the university had recently they need to finger to keep their school ethics blow. The president is in charge of the whole school and two dozen programs, some of which won national championships. Fans of the football team should be a minimum of the worries they have.

I was surprised that the USC decided to continue the program of disadvantage in football when Clay Helton was detained. I hope that the big buyer is very revenge when Alabama unveils our doors next year. Perhaps Bohn removes the imbalance in out programs.

We have not forgotten UCLA

Hmm … 38,000 people at the Rose Bowl for the UCLA-Cal game. Another way: 54,000 empty seats. Just think, and the Bears moving to Stadium SoFi next season, Dignity Health Stadium will be available.

There will be fewer people attending the UCLA game at the Rose Bowl as the UCLA team is below par, and the UCLA-Cal game has no worthwhile results, but attendance at many college football matches will be low as long as day depends on TV and time of games.

In the old days, when the audience in college was a spectator sport rather than a television show, games were held on Saturday evenings at 1 or 2 pm. I was attending these UCLA games so in Choliseum and later at the Bowl Rose and win or lose, I enjoyed them all. Ask me to drive to Pasadena late Saturday night, not to mention Friday night, to go home at 10:30 or 11:00 p.m. – not a chance.

Nothing new here

“A new inflammatory rule goes against everything that college football stands for” that is your own part of the Houston University football strategy.

College sports have always been away from what they are supposed to be? Graduate students play varsity due to technical technique. Everyone prefers to pay players and college teams as mini league licenses for the benefits. Any-and-done is okay. Trainers pay a huge salary. And cheating, of course.

Teams are loading with foreign recruits, not only the UCLA basketball team, but small sports like golf teams: three are the maximum and three. College sports should stand for participating students, not alumni talking to someone who is paid to come here and to function.

Where is the barrier?

Perhaps the reason is that a few black baseball professional players are there that a few really good black baseball player.

Similar to Divisions colleges in which there is diversity as a king, the best players are available to sports teams. Almost all the Division I basketball teams are the most blacks because their football players are well-known. I hope if you look at the majority of baseball teams of his Division 1 you will see most of white people.

Professional sports do not take care of your color or nationality as long as you are the best available talent.

Unlike academics, where you can handle statistics to achieve diversity, there is nothing to demand when assessing talent in athletics. You are pretty good or if you do not.

Any Division I athletic program or professional sports team says that we need more blacks, white, Asians, Hispanics, males or females. They do not just want the best talent regardless of diversity.

When Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, all the owners, players and managers were Anglo or Hispanic. There were no African Americans at all in sport at all. Now see who is the leader in charge of the amp. He's a black man and he's running the show!

Nowadays, there could be no African-American players on the Dodger roster, but the manager is black and this could really be more important. Good players of all ethnic groups emerge, but perhaps Dave Roberts's position in the MLB's power structure is more prominent.

It's dangerous

In his search column on football and his role in the devastating death of Kevin Ellison, Dylan Hernandez is concerned with the aspect of American life that could be the last death of the game as it was at present. “The locals are fighting violence, as long as that violence is not directed at us,” Hernandez said and few people argue.

Would it add to the violence that is directed at those we love. One person feels that fewer mothers and fathers allow, because of what is now known about the risks inherent in the game, for their adolescents playing football. When that is dry, it's a game!

First, the "Bild" newspaper had reported about it. The blocked person must also attend an anti-violence seminar. On average, there are only about five such incidents and penalties per season in Bavaria, as the BFV spokesman said. Every year 267,000 games take place.

Terrance Williams de Gonzaga decommits from Georgetown basketball

When asked if the allegations of Georgetown's players led to Williams' decision, his mother Melanie Williams said in a telephone interview: “After many discussions with his parents and his prayer, Terrance decided to reopen his recruitment because he was Now the best thing for him. He has to focus on his senior year to finish strongly, almost 4.0 GPA and his ultimate Gonzaga basketball season. ”

Williams's decision to re-open his recruitment was another significant blow to Georgetown's third year coach, Patrick Ewing. Williams, a 6-pound 6-pound ancestor, is the excellent recruit in Washington. It was the first 2020 of Ewing when he made oral in July.

Georgetown announced Monday night that a boot guard James Akinjo and backup Josh LeBlanc are shifting. A subsequent public record search by The Washington Post indicated that a temporary restriction order had been issued in DD. Superior Court contested LeBlanc and junior Galen Alexander after two complaints alleging burglary, sexual harassment and assault last month. The complaints also mentioned a new man forwarding Myron Gardner, although the two complaints did not mention Akinjo.

Alexander and Gardner stay with the team and played in the roles of Wednesday night in the Hoyas 81-74 victory at Oklahoma State.

Even before this week's turmoil, the visit of the unprecedented Cowboys was viewed as a significant test for Georgetown, who put a disproportionate play and unreliable scorers to the care of the team from Texas win at Madison Square Garden at the end of the month. November to home loss to UNC Greensboro Saturday. Prior to Wednesday, Oklahoma State (7-1) only lost nine non-congressions at home since 1987.

While the out-of-court allegations were over Ewing's program and Williams was released in another hit, a Wednesday game may have given at least a hint of how Ewing intends to reconfigure his roster in the short term.

The Hoyas (5-3) He succeeded against the Cowboys behind guard sophomore Mac McClung, the only member of the first full recruitment class left by Ewing; Terrell Allen's graduate transfer guard, who started Akinjo's place; and other transfer, the senior center Omer Yurtseven.

While McClung was the easy achievement with 33 season points (including four directions) in 34 minutes, Allen's steady hand at the point of guard could have been the more notable performance for Georgetown.

Allen had 15 points, five of which help two turnover in just over 33 minutes in his first start for Hoyas. A native of Maryland and a graduate of DeMatha High just outside Washington spent her freshman season of college playing for Drexel before moving to Central Florida. In Orlando, he helped guide the Knights to the second round of the NCAA's competition last season, making it one of the few players on Georgetown's roster with Madness March experience.

A gifted point guard is crucial for the Hoyas turnover, and on Wednesday, Allen increased.

So did McClung, who looked more like the incredible fresh men of last season than the inconsistent sophomore he had so far. His 33 points against Oklahoma State continued a nine-point performance against UNC Greensboro and a six-point night against Duke. Previously he scored 19 points against Texas and 25 against Georgia State.

Without Akinjo, the second scorer was played by the team after Yurtseven, McClung will be asked more of the terrible night to transport into and out night. He must be a support scorer for Yurtseven, who had 19 points and nine reversed and, critically, he stayed out of dirty trouble to play more than 35 minutes in the desperately desperate Wednesday.

But Wednesday's victory at a loss of recruitment on Thursday was upsetting. Williams would be very welcome next season, especially after LeBlanc's departure.

Williams represented 17.8 points and 7.3 on average last season against some of the area's best competition. It was named the first All-Met Washington Post team as a junior and third team All-Met as a shophomore. He chose Georgetown this summer over Notre Dame and Michigan.

Two players have promised at Hoyas now in Class 2020: Jamari Sibley four-star, 6-8 forward from Oak Hill Academy, is the eighth recruit in Virginia, and Dante Harris, 5-10 guard from Mary's Tenn.

The return to Barcelona of Kubo, the Japanese who has finished in the hands of Madrid (Toni Padilla)

Always accompanied by her silent mother, Takefusa Kubo (Kawasaki, 2001) has become accustomed to life in Palma. The young Japanese midfielder, ceded by Real Madrid to Mallorca, began on the bench, but little by little a place has been made on the home team. "He will be a great player. Right now it is, but calm down. There is talk too much about him, "warned Vicente Moreno, who has seen how different Japanese journalists go on to follow the news of Mallorca just to see the evolution of a footballer who is 19 years old and is an absolute international. "It has incredible quality and has been fast adapted. Because he's already lived in Spain, he speaks Spanish perfectly and does not miss a joke, "said Salva Sevilla, one of the veterans of the team, about a young man who has spent most of his life dreaming of debuting at the Camp Nou dressed in azulgrana But now that he will finally debut, he will act as a soccer player in the rival team. And yielded by Real Madrid.

The friends of Takefusa Kubo explain that the days after returning to Japan were the worst of the life of this young soccer player. When in 2014 Barça was sanctioned for breach of the FIFA regulations regarding signing of soccer players under age, one of the names affected was that of Kubo, which had been discovered by Barça in Japan. The soccer player had to return home to continue playing, but the Barça club kept in touch with him. Kubo, in fact, did not hide when he debuted at the first Japanese division with FC Tokyo that his challenge was to return to Barcelona. And within the club he was confident that he could do it again once he was of legal age, by military man to the branch waiting for the jump to the first team. The fact of having the subsidiary in Second B, however, did not help. And according to the directive, neither the economic and sports pretensions of a young person who became a star in his country. When Barça showed up cold, Real Madrid appeared to offer six years of contract, with more than one million euros a year of salary and the possibility to be part of the dynamics of the first team, without guaranteeing minutes, or leave assigned to First. And so Kubo finished in Mallorca, where he has already premiered as a scorer.

Past Blaugrana

Born in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, in 2009, he participated in a summer campus that Barça organized, the best player of all who participated and who won the right to go to Belgium to participate in a training football tournament with other Japanese children controlled by the club's schools. Then, Kubo played in a modest Kawasaki club, Persimmon, and the family wagered everything for Barça, allowing that trip to Europe. Kubo was again chosen MVP for that tournament, and it was then that Barça decided to invite him to Barcelona to take a test at La Masia in April 2011. Kubo convinced himself, He went to La Masia, where he became part of the C-League team, although he had to pack his bags when the club was penalized for playing football players like him. Kubo left Barcelona promising to return to play at the Camp Nou. But nobody expected it to be with Mallorca.

How David Fizdale spends the ultimate fate of Knicks

The inevitable thing was done on Friday afternoon. The Knicks dug David Fizdale after 84 games and there were only 21 victories. It was thought this year was different, after Marcus Morris, Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, Taj Gibson and Wayne Ellington. Instead, with a 4-18 record, the season was getting worse in some way than was tancathon last year, when the Knicks were trying to lose.

Here are five minutes that led to this day:

July 1st

Fizdale's magnetic personality was designed to make the Knicks a player in a free agency. Instead, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant joined the competing nets. The Knicks were not even taking a meeting with Kawhi Leonard. Kemba Walker, a native of Bronx, signed the Celtics. Jimmy Butler went to the Heat. The Knicks tried to turn a free agency as a result, signing good players to short contracts, hoping that this was the first step towards respect.

“There were a lot of high-end players that we might be interested in coming here. We had a certain way that we wanted to build this team. This is how we chose to build it, ”said president Steve Mills in September.

fizdale dvid fired history knicks record
Charles Wenzelberg / New York Post

In reality, it was a great disappointment, and Fizdale's connections could not even give them a superstar player.

November 11th

The Knicks do not show any home loss for the Cavaliers, which lost 21 falling points to 2-8. The game is however pales compared to the post-match fireworks, where Mills and general manager Steve Perry meet with the media in an informal press conference before Fizdale. It is a wonderful sight. Usually only the coach speaks after games. The first sign that Fizdale is in trouble.

Advantage for Kramp-Karrenbauer: The crisis of the SPD becomes an opportunity for the CDU leader – politics

Thomas Strobl broke out of the agreed line. A minority government could be an "option" if the SPD left the coalition, the Baden-Württemberg speculated three days ago. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, on the way in faraway Afghanistan, was not satisfied with the opinion of her Vices.

For the head of the CDU, the crisis of the SPD is an opportunity to profile itself as a leading figure with clear announcements and a straight course. When people talk confusedly and spread contradictory signals, that bothers them.

The defeat of Olaf Scholz and his partner Klara Geywitz was not a nice surprise for the Union. Hardly anyone is keen on a coalition failure and rapid new elections at the CDU and CSU. CSU boss Markus Söder has the municipal election in March firmly in view. A heated Bundestag election campaign at the same time would endanger Söder's patriotic embrace strategy.

Kramp-Karrenbauer could theoretically exploit a coalition break to pull the chancellor's candidature at lightning speed. As a risk player by nature and as a chair of office, she would be at an advantage over others. But the Saarlander also knows that she has to slowly work her way out of the polls to get into an election battle that will be doubly difficult without Angela Merkel at the top.

A minority government also irritates only a few in the CDU. The beautiful theory – a cabinet of Union Ministers! – opposes the sad practice. Instead of making "pure CDU" policy, the government would have to make even more compromises than now to find majorities in parliament. As Defense Minister, AKK would be particularly hard. It would also be hard to imagine a powerful EU Council Presidency in the second half of 2020.

The SPD duo is in a dilemma

The course of the SPD party congress, however, speaks for the fact that the question of a minority government does not arise at all. Kramp-Karrenbauer did not believe it anyway, not even when Norbert Walter-Borjans and Saskia Esken outclassed the vice-chancellor's team. She knows the dilemma that comes in the new bosses who just win the race. She, too, had to approach the losers after the victory over Friedrich Merz and thereby frustrate her followers.

The SPD duo is in the same dilemma. The head of the CDU has even made it easier for the two of them to swivel from the anti-Groko fund to the Realo camp. She deliberately made her agreement with Olaf Scholz public that the basic pension compromise will be implemented only when it is clear that the coalition holds.

That SPD left indignant about "blackmail", shows how exactly the maneuver met. Since then, the price of getting out in the shop window was clearly visible to every SPD delegate.

If at the same time the message stuck in her party: "The boss had previously crafted cunning, so we will not be ripped off," then the Kramp-Karrenbauer would be doubly right. The next leadership test is waiting for them now: keeping their own troops in line and at the same time negotiating so hard with the new SPD leadership that nothing gets any value – but the black Peter still stays with Walter Borjans and Esken.
