Late goals lift Leicester, Chelsea

first_imgLONDON (AP):Premier League leaders Leicester and reigning champions Chelsea needed winning goals in the 89th minute yesterday to keep on track their respective campaigns for the English title and European football next season.Leonardo Ulloa came off the bench in the 78th minute to score the only goal of Leicester’s home game against a Norwich side that looked to have earned a vital point in their battle against relegation.Branislav Ivanovic headed Chelsea’s winner in a 2-1 comeback victory at Southampton, who had previously kept six consecutive clean sheets in the league.Elsewhere, West Ham moved up to provisional fifth place after a 1-0 win over Sunderland in the early kick-off, while Watford were held to 0-0 at home by Bournemouth, and Stoke beat bottom club Aston Villa 2-1. West Bromwich Albion edged Crystal Palace 3-2 in the late game.SENSATIONAL SEASONSceptics have been waiting since late last year for the bubble to burst in Leicester’s sensational season. Bottom of the standings at Christmas in 2014 and top of them at Christmas in 2015, the Midlands club was widely expected to drop points as the season wore on.Two weeks after a 2-1 loss to Arsenal that ended a run of three consecutive wins, Leicester’s title hopes looked set to take another knock at King Power Stadium.Leicester forwards Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez have scored more league goals than the entire Norwich team put together, with 33 to 30. But they were kept in check as Norwich played Leicester at their own game, sitting deep, and then looking to hit the opposition on the break.The tactic worked, at least until Ulloa’s close-range strike put Claudio Ranieri’s side firmly back in the Premier League driving seat.”You cannot always play well. It’s not important to play well or not. It’s important to take points,” Ranieri said.Chelsea trailed to a goal by Shane Long at Southampton just before half-time, but Cesc Fabregas drew the champions level in the 75th and Ivanovic headed the late winner.Along with the points, Chelsea also extended their unbeaten league run since Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho in December to 11 games.”The Chelsea we want to see is one which reacts to setbacks,” Hiddink said.A single goal was enough for West Ham in the early game against relegation-threatened Sunderland. Winger Michail Antonio scored it by cutting in from the right touchline and muscling past three Sunderland defenders to curl the ball past keeper Vito Mannone. The performance lacked the home side’s recent sparkle, but was enough to win a scrappy game.”We were not flat, but we were not in the red zone,” West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said.”That makes this win even bigger for us. I will never be objective, as I am West Ham manager. But realistically, we deserved three points today.”last_img read more

WORLD WIDE NOTORIETY FOR TERMON MAN WHO CASTRATED NEIGHBOUR’S PET ‘RUSTY’

first_imgIT WAS a story which shocked the county when donegaldaily.com was first to expose the cruel Donegal man who castrated his neighbour’s little terrier because it was annoying his own purebred pedigree pooch.Now the story has shocked the country – and the world! And it is being reported by news and radio stations around the world including the USA, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.Crazed Eddie Flood, 43, used a lambing ring to cut the testicles of little Rusty after becoming worried that the little terrier would mate with his border collie. Father-of-four Flood, of Carnasaull, Termon, claimed the dog was allowed to roam freely and that he had been forced to remove it from his house more than 20 times.After becoming sick of the dog, he put a rubber lambing ring on it – the kind which is normally used to cut the tails off lambs.Flood used a set of pliers to put on the ring and after a few days the dog was unwell and lethargic.It was only then that his owner was noticed the dog had lost its testicles.The dog’s owner, Frank McGettigan of Meenreagh, Termon, told Letterkenny District Court, that he was distraught when he discovered what had happened to his three year old pet dog.He didn’t know who had done such a thing and mentioned it to Flood but he denied having anything to do with the attack.Inspector for the ISPCA, Kevin McGinley, approached Flood on September 11th of 2009 and put it to him that he had placed the ring on the dog.Flood’s solicitor Ms Sinead Bradley told the court that the lambing ring was a common procedure used on lambs which did cause some discomfort.She said her client now admitted the offence but said his three dogs had been pestered by the little terrier.She said Flood was an animal-lover himself and had only castrated Rusty after he had “lost it.”Flood had a pedigree border collie which he was afraid for as the terrier dog was trying to mate with it.He claimed he had been forced to lock the dogs into a shed as the terrier had been constantly calling around to the house and trying to interfere with his dogs.He also claimed he had to return the terrier to its owner on numerous occasions.Flood also claimed his three children had become frightened of the dog – a claim which the dog’s owner completely denied.Ms Bradley said all the neighbours in the area who owned female dogs were aware that Mr.McGettigan’s dog was allowed to roam freely and was considered a nuisance.But even after he was castrated it was revealed the dog returned to Flood’s home and tried to mate with the border collie again.Mr.McGettigan told the court that he had been forced to give away the dog after the incident after spending more than €200 on vet fees for the injured dog.He said he found the dog a new home because he was afraid for its safety.Ms Bradley said she had been told by neighbours with female dogs that Rusty had been a pest and that no dog was safe from the attentions of the terrier.Judge Seamus Hughes asked if wandering males around Termon were also safe from Mr Flood.He fined the unemployed father of four a total of €730 – €230 for the vet bills and a further €500 compensation to be paid to Mr McGettigan for the loss of his dog.He also adjourned the case until March 14th to see if the compensation has been paid to the injured party.Speaking after the case, Inspector Kevin McGinley of the ISPCA said he was satisfied at the outcome of the case.He also revealed that this is the THIRD such case in which a lambing ring has been used to castrate a dog because it had tried to mate with another dog.“We are very pleased at the outcome of the case. Hopefully this will show people that they cannot take the law into their own hands.“We would ask people whose dogs are being worried by other dogs to contact us and we will investigate each case,” he said.Rusty’s plight, it seems, has now taken on international significance with news and radio stations around the world reporting our donegaldaily.com exclusive.EndsWORLD WIDE NOTORIETY FOR TERMON MAN WHO CASTRATED NEIGHBOUR’S PET ‘RUSTY’ was last modified: December 15th, 2010 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
