RelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Trio of signings make instant impact as Everton stun Spurs EPL: Spurs, Everton light up London French champions Paris St-Germain have overtaken Manchester City as the most financially-powerful club in world football, the annual Soccerex Football Finance 100 report has showed. PSG topped the 2020 edition with a football finance index score of 5.318. This is based on the value of the current squad, tangible assets, finance available in their accounts, potential owner investment and net debt. The study said PSG had reduced their debt by 70 million euros (£58.2 million) over the last year, while Manchester City’s debt levels had increased by more than 90 million euros. Bayern Munich came third with Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid completing the top five. Manchester United fell eight places from last year to 16th in the report, mainly due to the depreciation in squad value and an increase in cash debt. Europe’s elite sides accounted for 80 per cent of the top 30 but almost half of those clubs are owned by non-European entities. These include organisations and individuals from the Middle East, North America and South-east Asia, the report said. “This year’s report paints a positive picture of football’s collective financial health, but it also highlights the growing imbalance between the power of Europe’s modern elite, with some of the game’s heritage brands in danger of being left behind,” Philip Gegan, Soccerex managing director, said. He said: “In spite of Europe’s dominance, football is very much a global game with investment from football’s emerging markets very much underpinning its continued growth.” The English Premier League is represented by 18 clubs in the top 100, while the US Major League Soccer was the next best with 17. Los Angeles Football Club were rated highest from the MLS in 18th spot ahead of local rivals LA Galaxy at number 22.Tags: Soccerex Football FinanceTottenham Hotspur
Due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in Broward, supplies to build a mobile hospital have arrived at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.The Florida Department of Health revealed there were 14 additional cases in the state bringing the number of infected residents is now 299 most in South Florida. Broward County has the most coronavirus cases in the state with 80, while Miami-Dade County has 77, and Palm Beach County has 21. And still no cases on the Treasure Coast.A six year old boy tested positive for the virus in Palm Beach County. The majority of coronavirus cases in the state are confirmed in South Florida. As a result, three mobile hospitals will be built in South Florida as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.The site will be one of three set up in Florida in order to expand testing for coronavirus.Some of the materials received at Executive Airport include flooring, support beams and several tents. Active duty military members are expected to help build the facility, which will have around 250 beds, and then run it once it’s operational.Florida’s Emergency Management Office ordered 2,000,000 N-95 face masks, 500,000 pairs of gloves, gowns and collection kits, along with 50,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and about 5,000 ventilators and hospital beds.Another mobile hospital is set to be built at CB Smith Park in Pembroke Pines, and the National Guard will carry out swab field testing at the same location.In Miami-Dade, drive-thru testing is set to begin at Hard Rock Stadium in the coming days, and it’s already underway at the Doris Ison Health Center in Miami. Also, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says it’s not necessary to close child care centers across the state unless the health department orders it.
No. 1 USC completed its domination of the Pac-12 on Friday night, ending the regular season with a four-set win (24-26, 26-24, 25-21, 25-20) over No. 4 UCLA.Senior All-American setter Kendall Bateman became USC’s career assists leader in the victory, recording 46 assists to add to her record-breaking total of 4,264.The win over the Bruins (24-6, 17-5) marked a game in which the Women of Troy (25-4, 20-2) avenged an early-season loss to UCLA in their home conference opener before winning 20 of their next 21 matches.USC had already clinched the conference title last weekend, but seemed to have plenty of motivation left for the season finale against its cross-town rivals.Senior All-American outside hitter Alex Jupiter led USC with 18 kills, and junior outside hitter Katie Fuller added a season-high 16 kills.Senior middle blocker Lauren William chipped in 10 kills while sophomore middle blocker Alexis Olgard posted a season-high six blocks.Junior Rachel Kidder led the Bruins with 18 kills, but hit just .119 for the match thanks to 13 hitting errors.USC had a 22-16 lead in the first set, but the Bruins reeled off a 10-2 run to stun the Women of Troy and claim the first set.UCLA staged a similar comeback in the second set to tie the score at 24-24, but Jupiter and sophomore Sara Shaw prevented another USC collapse by racking up kills in the final two points to claim the second set for the Women of Troy.Three straight blocks sparked USC to an 8-1 run that gave the team an 18-8 lead in the third set. The Bruins went on yet another late run before serving into the net at 24-21 to hand their rivals a 2-1 lead.Tied up 17-17 with the Bruins in the fourth set, the Women of Troy took control on a kill from Shaw, and wrapped up the match after a net violation was called on UCLA on the final point.The victory was USC’s eighth straight, and the squad has now defeated every team in the Pac-12. The Bruins are the only Pac-12 team the Women of Troy didn’t sweep at least once.Still, the team did receive some disappointing news Sunday, when the NCAA tournament bracket was released.Despite receiving 53 of 60 first-place votes in the latest rankings, the Women of Troy were given the No. 7 overall seed in the 64-team bracket.That potentially sets up a tough quarterfinal matchup against No. 2 seeded Nebraska (24-4), the Big 10 champions.As one of the top 16 seeds, USC will be able to play its four-team regional at home.The Women of Troy are slated to play Ivy League champions Yale (18-6) in the first round Friday night at the Galen Center. If they advance, they will play either Tulsa (27-6) or Oklahoma (21-11) in the second round on Saturday night.

Georgetown’s first goal put the Hoyas up 1-0, a lead that would hold throughout the scrimmage.Despite losing 3-0, SU head coach Ian McIntyre said the scrimmage was “productive,” especially given SU has only practiced three days leading up to its first scrimmage. The Orange started four freshmen and played eight throughout the game.“This is good,” McIntyre said, “this is good to get that work under our belt.”Replacing BonoWith last year’s starting goalie Alex Bono now playing Major League Soccer, SU will replace him with a freshman. Senior goalie Pat Castle was on the sidelines with one arm in a sling, and McIntyre said the injury would be “long term.” Hilpert started the first half, and Austin Aviza finished the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHilpert faced only two shots in the first half while Aviza faced six in the second. Aviza made the best save of the game. After he saved a shot on the left side, popping it up and behind him, he rushed to the left goal post and stepped in front of Georgetown midfielder Matthew Ledder’s header as the midfielder and Aviza collided while the ball popped over the net.Georgetown scored its second goal when junior forward Brett Campbell kicked Aviza’s rebound over the goalkeeper, who had just made a diving stop. SU played sloppier in the second half, which contributed to Aviza seeing more work than Hilpert.“They both did well, both made some important saves, Austin (made) a couple of good saves the second half,” McIntyre said. “It was a very productive session, and that’s what we wanted out of this.”On the attackSU took just six shots to Georgetown’s 12, managing to put only two on net. Junior forward Chris Nanco, Syracuse’s most experienced forward, subbed in with only 28:08 left in the game. He had yet to practice due to injury and McIntyre said he wasn’t quite in game shape, but the coaching staff wanted to get him minutes.Many of SU’s attempts at the net ended in Georgetown goalie Mitchell Auer’s hands, as Syracuse sent several passes long and others wide of their targets. McIntyre liked the combination of midfielder Julian Buescher, and forwards Oyvind Alseth, Kenny Lassiter and Noah Rhynhart despite the lack of offensive production. One of SU’s best chances came on a shot by Buescher early in the first half that he sailed over the net.“We are not a team right now and we have to build on that,” Buescher said. “We act like a team off the field, but on the field (there) was a communication problem and we have to keep working on that.” Comments

Asempa FM’s, Thomas Freeman N. Yeboah has been appointed as a Member of the Research and Information Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).His appointment follows series of revelations he made on issues pertaining to sports in Ghana and football in particular.Freeman set the records straight on who scored Ghana’s 100th Nations Cup goal after Agyeman Badu was erroneously credited with that feat.He stated unequivocally that John Mensah scored the 100th Nations Cup goal.He also revealed that Kotoko’s triumph in the 2011-12 Glo premier league was their 21st and not the 22nd as widely reported.He also revealed that Ghana’s highest score line in an international friendly was 12-0 against Malawi on October 15, 1962 and not the 13-2 against Kenya reported. Based on these feats, Thomas Freeman has been appointed as a member of the Research and Information Committee.“The Ghana Football Association extends its compliments. It is our pleasure to inform you that you have been co-opted as a member onto the above-mentioned Committee with immediate effect,” a statement signed by the General Secretary of the GFA stated.
Toronto led at half, 71-49, as the Lakers went 0 for 6 from the 3-point line and gave up 54.7 percent shooting.The smell of sulfur was already in the air at Staples Center, thanks to the dismissal of Kings’ coach John Stevens Sunday morning. He probably had no idea that he should have taken “fall back” so literally.The Kings are 4-8-1. That’s 13 games out of 82, with only four of them started by goaltender Jonathan Quick, who wasn’t that good when he did play. General manager Rob Blake, no relation to Toe Blake, booted Stevens after only 19 months on the job, and a playoff appearances in his first season. Blake and club president Luc Robitaille are the ones who hired Stevens and voiced no displeasure at the way Stevens upped the tempo last season.If you like the move, you call it decisive. Others might call it impulsive. But then basketball suffers the same itchy finger.Tyronn Lue coached the Cavaliers, or at least was the guy sitting in the head coaching chair and having to answer the questions, when they won the Eastern Conference last year and won the NBA championship in 2016. Without LeBron James and with an injured Kevin Love, he was relieved of his parking pass and key card after an 0-6 start.Then Magic Johnson was heard ranting about the way the Lakers have begun the first season of the rest of their lives. They have played not quite one-ninth of the season, they are the only team to beat Denver, they won at Portland Saturday night, and they had to rearrange things when Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo were suspended.Walton was the betting favorite to lose his coaching job before anyone else. It hasn’t happened yet, and the acquisition of Tyson Chandler should help the Lakers’ rim defense and will give some relief to McGee, who has been the Lakers’ second-best player.Generally speaking, and barring some personal and criminal episode, coaches get fired in the midst of a season because management does not know what else to do. The things Blake said about the hiring of interim coach Willie Desjardins are approximately the same things former Kings GM Dean Lombardi said about the hiring of Darryl Sutter in December of 2013. Lue and Sutter won championships when they joined the parade in progress. More often, the path doesn’t waver.Then again, panic sometimes just indicates heightened awareness. No reaction to what the Lakers did Sunday night would be too extreme.

They managed to make the score presentable in this 121-107 loss to Toronto, rallying with LeBron James on the bench, but the embarrassment of the first three quarters won’t be redacted.Kawhi Leonard, who is being eased back into greatness as he averages 26.1 points, sat out this game. The way things went, the California State Athletic Commission should have made that call, or at least stopped the fight at some point.It was more like one of those NCAA preseason shakedown scrimmages, like Kansas vs. Washburn, than a match between two licensed NBA teams. Toronto led after one quarter, 42-17. That’s in Fahrenheit, by the way.Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“I don’t know what it was,” Brandon Ingram said, “but I know we can’t have lapses like that at the beginning of the game, when we don’t have the right energy.”Serge Ibaka, who was averaging 16.3 points, scored 20 points before the Lakers scored 11 and sank all 11 first-half shots, from near the basket and far away. The Lakers, in their lust for “pace,” put up 3-pointers without the requisite in-and-out passing, and at one point LeBron James stood in the corner, beseeched Kyle Kuzma to run a particular play, and then grimaced when he saw it wasn’t happening.Worse was the Lakers’ total defensive nonchalance, and their disinterest in getting back downcourt when Toronto got running. When Luke Walton took out JaVale McGee and went to a small lineup, Ibaka immediately soared for a put-back.It was 41-10, just 9:35 in. Since the shot clock came into being, the Lakers never have trailed by 31 in the first quarter.When James re-entered the game in the second quarter, the Lakers showed some vital signs and even cut the lead to 20. But Ibaka came back in to resume his feeding frenzy, and when Pascal Siakam took the ball 22 feet for a slam without a ripple of resistance, James, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart looked at each other in various degrees of incredulity.
