Bundesliga: Awoniyi fires blank as Mainz slump

first_imgRelatedPosts Chelsea sink Brighton to make winning start UEFA Nations League: Spain’s Gaya nets late goal to snatch draw with Germany Lampard says more to come as Chelsea look to bridge the gap Striker Taiwo Awoniyi and his Mainz side suffered a 5-0 thumping to RB Leipzig in a Bundesliga tie on Sunday.Timo Werner continued to impress in the spotlight by scoring a hat-trick for the visiting Leipzig. Werner has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks, where he would find himself managed by compatriot Jurgen Klopp.Whether there would be a regular place in Liverpool’s famous attack straight away remains to be seen, but Werner did his credentials no harm by scoring a hat-trick against Mainz for the second time this season.Having been the protagonist when Leipzig hammered Mainz 8-0 in the reverse fixture, Werner set off on his way to another hat-trick by opening the scoring in the 11th minute.Goals from Yussuf Poulsen and Marcel Sabitzer – himself mentioned as a target for a Premier League club, in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur – compounded the damage to give Leipzig a 3-0 advantage at the end of a strong first half.Werner, who had been without a goal in his last four games, then added his second goal just after the break at the end of a free-flowing team move, inspired by Kevin Kampl, to further reinforce Leipzig’s commanding position. Kampl thought he had a goal himself soon after when firing home from the edge of the box, but the goal was disallowed due to Poulsen interfering from an offside position.It didn’t take long for Leipzig to assert their dominance again, though, as Werner completed his treble in the 75th minute with a deft lobbed finish.Awoniyi added bite to Mainz attack when he came in late in the second half.He created some begging chances that were wasted.Tags: Mains 05.Marcel Sabtzertaiwo adeniyiTimo Wernerlast_img read more

Grindvold grinds out winning round at Greenwood

first_imgPSC golf from The Golf Club Sports BarMonday, Sept. 19, Green Valley – Stableford1st John Emmerson (11) 37pts 2nd John Pierrel (13) 37pts3rd Joe Mooneyham (16) 36ptsFour groups headed down the 36 this morning to test the links of Green Valley. Finally, the whole game came together, the back nine was stronger, and thus our TGC partner John Emmerson snatched this week’s victory on count back.Last week I wrote that 39 would normally be enough for a win when writing of our second place finisher Mick Beresford, and that was true today.  Timing is everything, not just on your swing, but your entire game.  But today Johnny got to the top on count back over John Pierrel who has been traveling Thailand and playing golf all over the kingdom.  Emmerson’s 19 on back was 2 better than Pierrel’s 17, so ring the bell pal!  You actually had good reason to bum a cigar from Warboys this time.John Emmerson & Joe Mooneyham.It was great to see our PSC golf chief Joe Mooneyham out with us and playing great golf with his 36 points for third on the day.Our buddy from Hawaii, Kalani is back with us for a couple of weeks now, so Mahalo, man.For the record, the proper stableford count back criteria is back 9 total points, if tied then back 6 total, if still tied then back 3 total, if still tied then last hole total, if still tied then highest points on the #1 handicap hole.  There are actually 4 more stages, but they are rarely necessary.Wednesday, Sept. 21, St. Andrews – Stableford1st John Pierrel (13) 39pts2nd Henry O’Brien (18) 35pts3rd Terry Wagner (20) 31ptsNot content with his second place finish on Monday, John Pierrel set his standards high and came out the winner of today’s competition.  John played some very consistent golf with only one blob on the card.  Shooting a 39 on this course is quite difficult, so well played to John.Bob, Mark, McHugh, Roachie, Jez & pals after Friday’s trip to Greenwood.Henry O’Brien has been playing well of late and an 18 handicapper that shoots 35 here has had a very good round of golf.  Terry Wagner got away with a third with his 31 points, but some days you just get lucky sneaking that one in.St. Andrews is one of the best courses we play in Pattaya.  It never ceases to impress with its beautiful vistas of the Rayong hills.  The course was in very good nick today and the weather was overcast, making for a cool and pleasant day of golf on a great track.Friday, Sept. 23, Greenwood – Stableford1st Jack Grindvold (5) 37pts2nd Gareth Gill (7) 35pts3rd John McHugh (9) 35ptsIt was TGC partner Johnny McHugh’s birthday today, so a very special outing was on the agenda for this trip out to Greenwood.  McHugh sponsored the four long drives, something he usually excels in… but not today.  There was that silly rule about drives having to be in the fairway he forgot about.  Sorry about that birthday boy.Long time buddy Ernie MacInerney took 2 of the LD’s.  It’s a shame the Dalai Lama didn’t play today, big hitter, the Lama.  A rare appearance by Joe Sebastian on the golf course was noted, good to see the lefty back in action as he apparently had a great back nine after 6 months of cobwebs on the bag.It was one of those days when you wished you had shares in Bacardi, as the Breezers were flowing like the Pattaya floods of the past week.  But the star of the day was our own Jack Grindvold who won with a great round, a Cinderella story if you will.There was a trio of single digit handicappers on today’s podium.  These guys make few mistakes, so Jack’s victory was that much sweeter.  Well done Jack, our favorite Swede, and don’t worry, that new Ikea in Bangkok will be open next month.Greenwood was in spectacular shape and we will be returning next month, so watch for the October schedule soon.  Keep it in the fairway lads!Note:  The Golf Club is located on Soi LK Metro, off Soi Buakhao and Soi Diana junction.  We can be reached on 085 434 3377 or [email protected] and our website is www.golfclubpattaya.com.last_img read more

Powered by Firework The Raheem Sterling vs Joe Gomez feud- what started as an on field taunt in Sunday’s clash between Manchester City and Liverpool, should have ended soon after, as these incidents happen in a regular basis in the beautiful game. But, the situation has taken a turn for the worse, as Sterling is now accused for physically attacking his compatriot!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters‘Don’t f*** with me’ is what Sterling told the Liverpool center back, as Guardiola’s boys suffered a 3-1 humiliation against the league toppers at Anfield.

Bruh moment of 2nd December 2019: Watch Gareth Bale’s priceless reaction to the Bernabeu…

Powered by Firework “Wales, Golf , Madrid- in that order” is the phrase that turned Gareth Bale from a fan favourite to the bête noire at Santiago Bernabéu. The Welshman’s flag celebration incident after qualifying for Euro 2020 has made himself into a subject of slack from the Real Madrid fanbase and the Spanish media. A prompt expression was seen from the stands in the Real Sociedad match last week, but the Galactico took it like a champ.Advertisement Image Courtesy: beIN SportsBale was subbed in for the youngster Rodrygo in the 67th minute as Real faced Sociedad at home last Sunday. As the forward was warming up in the sidelines, the supporters started loudly jeering and whistling at him. However, the Welsh international didn’t throw a fit, and chuckled it off and continued his pre-sub warm up drill.Check out the clip below, courtesy of Twitter account @LosBlancoStan.Advertisement Along with the taunts, the fans even made a banner for themselves with: “Rodrygo. Vini. Lucas. Bale. In that order” written on it.Los Blancos gaffer Zinedine Zidane reprimanded the action of the fans, as he spoke in the post match conference.“There is too much noise with Bale, he wants to be here and do as well as he can, that’s why we don’t want to talk too much about this.” he told reporters.“I hope this doesn’t carry on for the rest of the season. We want the fans to be with us from the beginning to the end but we can’t control this.” Zidane added. Advertisementlast_img read more
