TRANSFER FIGHT! Everton and Watford keen on pre-contract deal with La Liga defender

first_img Bernardo Espinosa [right] 1 Everton and Watford will go head-to-head to sign Sporting Gijon star Bernardo Espinosa.Both Premier league outfits have expressed a strong interest in the central defender but could face competition from clubs on the continent.Espinosa, 26, is expected to be the subject of bids in January, but talkSPORT understands he will snub a new deal at Gijon to leave on a free transfer next summer.The Colombian is being closely monitored by teams in Spain, Germany and Italy but the former Sevilla stopper has his heart set on a move to England and could agree a pre-contract in January.Gijon, struggling in La Liga, are resigned to losing their star defender, but would rather keep hold of Espinosa in January and let him leave for nothing next summer to aid their fight for survival.last_img read more

Premier League report cards: Every team’s end of season grade revealed

first_img 20 20 West Ham: B+ – The Hammers came very close to securing an A grade but a couple of poor results at the end of the season have seen them slip out of the top six in their final season at the Boleyn Ground. 20 Sunderland: B – A very poor season until Sam Allardyce put his stamp on the team and secured survival so memorably, at the expense of bitter rivals Newcastle United. Jermain Defoe is also owed a hug and a thank you from every Black Cats supporter. 20 20 Norwich City: F – The Canaries’ target was to stay in the Premier League and ultimately they failed, finishing six points from safety. Watford: B – Watford were relegation candidates but finished an admirable 13th despite winning two league games since the beginning of March. The owners – who have a reputation for sacking managers – decided it wasn’t good enough for Quique Sanchez Flores to keep his job and made the decision to get rid of him. Newcastle: F – A club Newcastle’s size shouldn’t be getting relegated, especially after spending more than £80m on players. Rafa Benitez did an admirable job but there are some serious questions that need asking about the club’s hierarchy, especially after the appointment of Steve McClaren. Liverpool: B- – Not a great season for the Reds but they improved after the sacking of Brendan Rodgers. There are a lot of promising signs for next season under Jurgen Klopp and could still finish this one with the Europa League trophy. It’s the end of the season, which means it is time for each club to receive their report card for the year.Leicester’s success this season has seen them finish top of the class with Claudio Ranieri as head boy while Aston Villa were left sitting in the corner with the dunce hat on.The Foxes’ miracle season means owners of clubs will be expecting a lot more from their managers next season after Leicester proved that there is no limit to what you can achieve in the Premier League, despite the financial differences.There were eight managerial casualties over the season with Manuel Pellegrini also leaving at the end of the season and possibly more to follow over the season.But which team has passed their tests and which have come up short?Click the arrow above, right, to see the end of season report cards for all of the Premier League clubs. Everton: D – Ended up in 11th and without a manager after the sacking of Roberto Martinez, despite a squad full of youth and promise. Some serious investment over the summer will need to be undertaken. Arsenal: C+ (click the arrow, right, to see every team’s grade for the season) – Despite a second-place finish and finishing above Tottenham again, Gunners will think about what could have been and all the sloppy points dropped. They inflicted two of Leicester’s three defeats of the season and still finished ten points behind them. 20 20 20 Manchester City: D – It was a very poor season for Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City. They were all clearly derailed by the ridiculous timing of the Pep Guardiola announcement, resulting in them falling out of the title race and nearly the top four. Bournemouth: A – Bournemouth’s success this season has gone under the radar with Leicester taking the limelight. The south coast club finished 16th after being widely expected to be the Premier League whipping boys, like Aston Villa. Southampton: B+ – Ronald Koeman did a fantastic job this season with the Saints set to secure European football next season. A top six finish looked very unlikely given the departure of key players such as Morgan Schneiderlin last season. 20 Manchester United: D- – The Red Devils finished outside the top four for the second time in three years and sent Old Trafford to sleep on the way with boring, monotonous football. Only the emergence of youth has kept United from receiving a much lower grade. 20 20 Crystal Palace: C- – Palace had a good start to the season but a run of two wins in 21 games meant that in any other season they would have been deeply involved in a relegation scrap. Stoke City: C – Stoke started slowly as all the big signings tried to gel and get used to the pace and physicality of the Premier League. Expect them to finish higher next season. 20 20 Leicester City: A+ – If there is a higher grade than this then the Foxes would get that. Leicester defied all the odds to only lose three games on the way to finishing top of the class by a huge ten points. 20 Aston Villa: U – Villa’s season was so bad it is barely gradable. Three wins and 27 defeats mean they are very much the class clowns and it could be a while before they in the top class again. 20 20 Tottenham: B+ – Spurs fans would have taken this at the start of the season but considering their position with ten games to go, it seems a little disappointing. Finishing behind Arsenal again means the season ends on the worst possible note but positives can be taken with the fantastic core of young English players at the club and a guaranteed spot in the Champions League group stage. 20 20 20 Chelsea: F – The Blues finished 10th with the worst Premier League title defence ever, sacked their charismatic manager Jose Mourinho and saw their star player Eden Hazard not score a Premier League goal until late April. West Brom: C – The Baggies did what was expected of them, nothing more, nothing less. Tony Pulis needs to kick the club on and aim higher than just Premier League survival or he will suffer a similar fate to his Stoke tenure. 20 Swansea City: B- – A late flurry of good results under new manager Francesco Guidolin saw the Swans climb all the way to 12th when it looked like they could be planning for life as a Championship club next season under Garry Monk. last_img read more

Guidance has $152,353 surplus

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Built on a vacant lot adjoining the Palmdale Boulevard mosque where the school had previously held classes, the new school has 11 classrooms, a computer lab, a library, an administrative building with the principal’s office, teacher and staff lounge, and cafeteria and playground areas. The school, which opened in 2001, has an enrollment of 196 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Class sizes in all grades are 20 students to one teacher. Al-Khatib talked about the school’s progress at an annual press conference to discuss the financial audit, academic performance and enrollment figures. “I know the numbers are kind of boring. We have to tell where we’re getting money from and where we spend it,” Al-Khatib said. The school’s operating budget for fiscal year 2006-07 is $1.3 million. Al-Khatib pointed out that Guidance students receive more instructional minutes than what the state requires. For example, kindergartners last school year spent 37,800 minutes in the classroom, more than the 36,000 minutes required. Seventy-seven percent of the students are considered socioeconomically disadvantaged, and the student body is ethnically diverse, Al-Khatib said. “Seventy-seven percent are on free and reduced lunch, which means we are dealing with underprivileged, disadvantaged kids,” Al-Khatib said. “Because of our small size, we are giving the attention we need to give to these students so they can compete.” karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The school also reported that its Academic Performance Index score this year declined by 5 points but it met all federal test score standards, which 60 percent of Antelope Valley public schools failed to do. “Last year the school scored 689, up 87 points from the year before, which is an extremely aggressive jump in our performance,” executive director Kamal Al-Khatib said. “Because our score was so high from the year before, it’s hard to beat yourself.” The school began the school year in August in its new $1.1 million campus, its first home of its own after five years leasing space from a mosque and borrowing empty classrooms at a Palmdale school. last_img read more

First Ibrox encounter between Rangers and Ross Co ends in stalemate

first_imgThe playmaker had the ball in the net inside the first three minutes but was denied the opener by an offside flag.Only a goal-line clearance from Paul Quinn stopped Windass scoring five minutes later as his speed saw him surge past the static County defence before rounding goalkeeper Scott Fox.County were clinging on with stubborn resistance and could have scored themselves when a Chris Routis free-kick dropped for Jonathan Franks in the box. Wes Foderingham’s wrist stayed strong, though, as he produced a decent save.Windass and James Tavernier both had efforts deflected wide as Rangers turned up the pressure but there was no breakthrough before the interval.There were loud cries for a penalty when Kenny van der Weg and Michael Gardyne brought down Barrie McKay as the Rangers winger danced into the box but referee Greg Aitken was unconvinced.Martyn Waghorn – making his first start since the opening day – was then denied by Fox’s brilliant save to his right, while Martin Woods was well placed on the line to deny Clint Hill’s header from the resulting corner.Warburton threw on O’Halloran with 25 minutes left as he sought a spark and almost got it within seconds as the forward crashed a header off the bar from Tavernier’s cross.Home skipper Lee Wallace was having an off day, though, and he had to be bailed out by Foderingham when his mistake let in Alex Schalk.Rangers soon turned to Niko Kranjcar as frustrations grew. Windass saw another effort blocked on the line but even Croatian substitute Kranjcar could not conjure the opening to unpick County’s solid rearguard as Rangers were booed off at full-time. It was Halliday who took the former Manchester City and Newcastle midfielder’s place as Jim McIntyre’s Staggies made their first ever visit to Ibrox, while he was joined in the side by Jason Holt after five weeks out injured.The Ibrox support were in no doubt as to which side they were backing following the training-ground dispute as they chanted Halliday’s name from the first whistle.Along with Josh Windass, the returning duo gave Rangers some of the pace and intensity they had been desperately lacking in midfield far this term – but the fluency was still missing.Windass was the only man in blue to escape Celtic Park with pass marks last week and again showed he has the potential to unlock defences. Rangers felt more frustration as they followed up their Old Firm humiliation and the Joey Barton fall-out with a 0-0 draw against Ross County.The closest Rangers came at Ibrox was a second-half header from substitute Michael O’Halloran which thudded off the crossbar.But they now face the prospect of dropping six points and a game in hand behind Ladbrokes Premiership leaders Celtic should Brendan Rodgers’ side beat Inverness on Sunday.Barton was nowhere to be seen after being banished from the club until Monday following his angry row with team-mate Andy Halliday and boss Mark Warburton in the wake of their 5-1 Hoops drubbing.last_img read more
