PBA IMAGESKia Picanto is rebuilding, only to find out that this ragtag crew could do just fine.Lumbering in obscurity and ridicule for the early part of the PBA Philippine Cup, the Picanto on Saturday night snapped a four-game skid in the tournament—and an eight-month losing streak—by bringing down Rain or Shine in a fight-marred contest, 98-94, at Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Lacking funds, Team Manila scrounges for ways to compete—and win Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year A day before, Kia signed up Carlo Lastimosa from the free agent market after getting a release from NLEX. Team consultant Joe Lipa, the former national coach, also hinted that they will still look to sign a big man and another scorer.Kia came into the game losing its last three contests by an average of over 35 points, while the Painters had all sorts of momentum going their way after a 120-99 ripping of the Fuel Masters on Wednesday.“I’m relieved,” Dandan said. “We really had no choice but to move forward and look at the positives of those blowouts. Our confidence was shot [during that losing streak].”Fines are expected to be stiff for Camson and Almazan, though it was clear in replays that the Kia bruiser took the first shot by landing an elbow on the Gilas Pilipinas center’s head.They were later heard hurling invectives at each other on their way to their locker rooms.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

As inconvenienced and frustrated passengers complain of not being refunded their tickets’ cost by Fly Jamaica Airways, a source has refuted those claims by saying that passengers are being refunded.A representative who spoke with Guyana Times just recently said, “All the flights that were cancelled or (passengers who) were affected are having a total refund. If you want to cancel from us because you need to book another carrier, I am not sure how they are gonna go about doing that, but they are free to come into the office and have that clarification done with accounting or they can call the local number and have clearer information as to how we are going about that.”The source said that in addition to the local office, Fly Jamaica also has international offices in the United States where queries can be made.Although the sale of tickets has been put on hold, the source related thatThe crashed airplaneoperations are expected to resume in January.Just recently, a disgruntled passenger expressed his frustration in a letter to this newspaper explaining, “I had purchased a ticket before the incident to travel to Guyana on December 21 and return to Toronto in January 2019. I contacted Fly Jamaica to find out if my flight would be cancelled and if I could get a refund. They claimed that the flight will not be cancelled, and, therefore, I will not be getting a refund. Since they only have the one aircraft, it is doubtful that they will resume flights from Toronto any time soon”.That passenger, Mohendraauth Ganesh is being gravely inconvenienced as he already had his vacation time-off approved from his job and “cannot make any other arrangements at this time because Fly Jamaica could not guarantee whether they will have another aircraft operational before December 21”.Ganesh complained that while he may have other options to travel to Guyana, he was unable to purchase another ticket as his funds were tied up for the flight he never boarded.He added, “I know I am not the only one in this situation, because Fly Jamaica has made no effort to reach out to its customers and they have not released any information to the press either”.The Fly Jamaica flight, OJ256, destined for Toronto, Canada crash-landed on November 9 at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD).The airplane carrying 118 adults, along with two infants and an eight-member crew, took off from the Airport about 02:10h, but shortly after, the aircraft encountered hydraulic problems and as such, returned to Timehri where it crash-landed.After the crash, the airline is now gearing up to face its second lawsuit, this one filed by a Canadian law firm to represent passengers who claimed they were injured during the crash landing.This publication understands that the notice of the class action suit was filed on Friday by the law firm, which is seeking compensation for not only the passengers who were on board the flight destined for Toronto, but the families who were affected as a result of the crash landing at CJIA.Canadian firms Howie, Sacks & Henry and Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman filed the first lawsuit against the airline for injuries and losses incurred as a result of the crash. That lawsuit was filed on November 23, 2018.
But a mix-up between Ben Foster and Kiko Femenia handed Alli an equaliser to at least salvage a point for last season’s Champions League finalists.The goal was reviewed for a potential handball by Alli, but Watford were furious it was not ruled out for an apparent push by Harry Kane on Christian Kabasele.“I have no idea,” said Sanchez Flores when asked if VAR had reviewed Kane’s push.“I was thinking VAR is objective, but now I am thinking it is something very subjective.”Watford were also angered by the decision to award the visitors a penalty just before half-time when Gerard Deulofeu was taken down inside the box by Jan Vertonghen.The late drama saved Spurs from a third straight defeat after humiliating heavy losses to Bayern Munich and Brighton before the international window.Tottenham have now won just three of their first 12 games in all competitions this season, but Mauricio Pochettino took heart from the fight they showed the battle back after the break.“The first half was poor, but second half I feel very proud. We fight, we took risks and we were rewarded with the goal,” said Pochettino.Doubts continue to grow over the Argentine’s ability to turn the tide in his sixth season in charge.However, Pochettino believes his side have taken the first step in restoring their confidence after the 7-2 mauling by Bayern earlier this month.“After Bayern Munich it is normal we were with our confidence on the floor,” added Pochettino.“It was so important the way we achieved the point in the end. We were fighting and showed character. In this type of situation the most important thing is the character you need to show.“For me it is the first step to build our confidence again.”Just like at Brighton a fortnight ago, Tottenham were behind within the first few minutes.Daryl Janmaat got in behind Danny Rose and crossed for Doucoure to apply the finish.– Impotent Spurs –After his exertions in a World Cup qualifier in North Korea for South Korea in midweek, Pochettino left Son Heung-min and club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele on the bench.But Son’s spark was badly missed from an impotent Spurs before the break.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino failed to summon a response to recent defeats © AFP / Glyn KIRKIndeed the hosts were fortunate to be just 1-0 down at half-time as Vertonghen somehow escaped conceding a penalty for bringing down Deulofeu despite a VAR review.Son was introduced for Davinson Sanchez at the break as Pochettino switched formation and he instantly offered more pace and directness to the Spurs’ attack.His powerful drive from a narrow angle was tipped onto the bar by Foster on 50 minutes.But in Tottenham’s search for an equaliser they were leaving huge gaps for the visitors to exploit on the counter-attack and Sanchez Flores’s men lived to regret not at least doubling their advantage with a host of good chances.At the other end, just as Tottenham seemed to be running out of ideas, Watford gifted them an equaliser when Foster collided with his own defender in Femenia and spilled the ball into the path of Alli, who swept the ball into an empty net for his first goal since January.During an anxious wait as the goal was reviewed, confusion reigned as the big screen inside the ground even said it had been ruled out before the referee finally awarded the goal.0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dele Alli scored a late equaliser for Tottenham in a 1-1 draw with Watford © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 19 – Watford manager Quique Sanchez Flores complained that VAR is not “objective” after Dele Alli’s controversial late equaliser for Tottenham was allowed to stand in a 1-1 draw with the Hornets on Saturday.Sanchez Flores seemed set for his first win since returning to Watford last month as the visitors led through Abdoulaye Doucoure’s early goal until four minutes from time.
Tottenham have been linked with a number of players to strengthen their frontline this summer.Fernando Llorente, Javier Hernandez and Saido Berahino are just a few of the names that have been mentioned already.However, reportedly there has been another name added to that list with news that Rickie Lambert could be about to reunite with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.To say this is not the exciting signing Spurs fans were hoping for would be an understatement – judging by the feedback on social media anyway.See below for the best immediate reaction to the Lambert to Spurs rumours … 1
1 Everton players celebrate Tom Cleverley’s goal Tom Cleverley was the hero for Everton on Boxing Day as his header in the final minute of stoppage time gave them a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park.The Toffees looked likely to be heading to stalemate on Tyneside with Magpies goalkeeper Rob Elliott in magnificent form once again, but his clumsy punch at the death allowed ex-Manchester United man Cleverley to loop a header home from near the edge of the box.Steve McClaren will be rueing a string of wasted chances in the second half which could have seen his side victorious but now see his side slip back into the relegation zone.It was an exciting affair on Tyneside and the Toffees looked bright from the off with Kevin Mirallas, making a rare start, going close twice and Romelu Lukaku forcing saves from Rob Elliot, who was the Magpies’ man of the match last week against Spurs.There was also a certain amount of festive feistiness on show as Daryl Janmaat and Gareth Barry were both booked and the former was lucky to remain on the pitch as he also shoved a rampaging Ross Barkley to the deck in a rather obvious foul.The game was seriously lacking in the final third after the restart, Lukaku was denied again by Elliot before the goalkeeper pawed away a snapshot from Aaron Lennon.Attempting to inject something special into the game, Roberto Martinez replaced Ross Barkley with Gerard Deulofeu after 69 minutes but it was Newcastle who nearly opened the scoring as Ayoze Perez dragged a shot just wide.And two minutes later his strike partner Aleksandar Mitrovic should have found the back of the net with a powerful header but he directed it just wide of the post with Tim Howard rooted to the spot, although the American did then save well from Georginio Wijnaldum.But it was Everton who were to have the final say as Cleverley, who has come back from injury in recent weeks, won them the match late on, moving them up to ninth in the Premier League table.
1 Peter Reid Former Manchester City and Sunderland manager Peter Reid is back in football after agreeing to join the coaching staff at Bolton.The 59-year-old started his playing career at Wanderers in the 1970s, going on to make 257 appearances before joining Everton, and he has returned to the Sky Bet Championship club to assist new interim manager Jimmy Phillips.Reid last managed in England with Plymouth in 2011 and most recently coached Indian club Mumbai City in 2014.“We are delighted that Peter has agreed to come in and be part of the team for the rest of the season,” chief executive Dean Holdsworth told the club’s official website.“Peter’s experience, standards, drive and personality will without doubt give the club a lift.”
