Juventus lose opening match to Udinese

first_imgMILAN (AP): Udinese stunned Juventus by winning 1-0 in Turin yesterday, as the Italian champions’ bid for a record-equalling fifth successive league title started with its first loss in 48 Serie A home matches. Juventus dominated but were unable to finish any of their many chances, and Udinese made the host team pay when Cyril Thereau scored 12 minutes from time with one of his side’s few opportunities. The Bianconeri’s last league defeat at the Juventus Stadium was on January 6, 2013, against Sampdoria. “The result leaves a slightly sour taste,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “We need to be more confident in our ability and to not lose heart when we don’t score. The players did everything required of them for 70 minutes, apart from scoring.” It was Stefano Colantuono’s first match in charge of Udinese – although his 200th as coach in the top flight. “Juventus forces you to defend. You have to be good at hitting them on the few sniffs of a chance you get,” Colantuono said. “That’s what we did. It’s not easy winning here … . Our spirit is to fight for every ball and you saw that.” In the evening matches, Fiorentina eased past 10-man AC Milan 2-0, while Sassuolo beat Napoli for the first time in Serie A, coming from behind to win 2-1. Inter Milan snatched a 1-0 win over 10-man Atalanta when on-loan Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic curled a stunning strike into the top right corner in the third minute of stoppage time. Newly promoted Carpi missed a penalty in its first-ever match in Serie A as they lost 5-2 at Sampdoria, which had David Ivan sent off late on. Frosinone was also playing in the top flight for the first time in their history and lost 2-1 at home to Torino, despite taking the lead in the seventh minute through Danilo Soddimo. Elsewhere, Chievo Verona won 3-1 at Empoli, and Palermo beat Genoa 1-0 with a stoppage-time strike from Abdelhamid El Kaoutari.last_img read more

Smithies believes there could be ‘plenty more’ from Washington

first_imgAlex Smithies has told QPR’s website he believes Conor Washington can start to find the net regularly now the striker is finally off the mark.Washington’s deflected effort in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Fulham was his first league goal for Rangers, who signed him from Peterborough in January.“We have all been dying for Conor to score that first league goal because he works so hard for the team. Everyone can see the amount of effort he puts in,” R’s keeper Smithies said.“I think, for him, it’s just a case of getting the first one or two, and then he will crack on. Hopefully now there are plenty more to come for him.”Washington put QPR ahead in the derby at FulhamSmithies played a major part in QPR’s first victory at Fulham since 1980, saving a penalty early in the game at Craven Cottage.Sone Aluko later fired a spot-kick against the post, meaning just two of the seven penalties Smithies has faced during his time at Rangers have been scored.“I’ve always got that confidence about me when it comes to facing penalties,” he said.“I don’t know why that is, but I seem to go the right way more often than not and when I do that I expect to save it.”Is Alex Smithies in our West London Championship XI?

Women’s Bow Hair Clips Barrette Ponytail Holder, Looks super cute – but the stitch inside which hold the

first_imgLooks exactly like the picture no creases and perfect bow very pleased. I have a particularly important date ahead of me in a few months and i needed something special for my hair in keeping with the theme of the evening. The fabric is lovely, the clip is sturdy and the colour is bold. It’s easy to clip into hair and holds a good chunk of hair in a ponytail. I’m going to be getting a few in different colours. Looks super cute – but the stitch inside which hold the ribbon broke, so now it is beginning to unravel. Can be fixed with some retying and some glue – its a bit of a pain. But for the price, its a cute accessory. Comments from buyers“Beautiful product, Such a pretty hair clip! Love it, Looks super cute – but the stitch inside which hold the “ I love them as does every one that see them i have told friends how to get on your web page xx. I was a little disappointed to find the bow came a little scrunched up in the packet however i’m sure this was due to it being shipped overseas as when i took the bow out of the plastic wrap it bounced back into shape with no apparent creases. The bow features a crocodile style clip to hold all the hair in place. I would say this bow is more of a medium sized bow rather than large as it states its a women bow. I bought it for my 7 year old daughter though so it was a large bow in relation to a child’s head but definitely more medium for a women. I ordered the bow in the red to go with my daughters christmas outfit and i must say it is exactly the same beautiful rich red as is seen in the picture so i’m very pleased and everyone at christmas dinner commented on how beautifully it swept my daughters hair back. I was so pleased with this product as i had looked for similar type products in shops in my town and couldn’t quite find a beautiful simple bow at a reasonable price so when i came across this i was delighted and so is my daughter. She loves bows and this one has fast became her new favorite. I’m pleased to say i’m pleasantly surprised by this as i thought it may fall apart after the firs couple of uses but there isn’t even any signs of it coming apart to it appears to be very well made. However not exactly a women’s large bow. It is a bit ‘pinker’ than on the picture but otherwise looks nice. Looks exactly like the picture. Just takes a while to arrive and mine came all crumpled up so i’ll have to iron it a little. Needed a little straightening out when arrived but otherwise just as described and hasn’t broken after a number of uses. Beautiful, large bow with a strong barette fastening. Perfect for holding a substantial amount of my hair in a fishtail style. The shade of blue is gorgeous, i want to get a pink one too. I love it, would be a bargain at twice the pricep. Takes a little time to arrive, due to location, but worth the wait. Bigger than expected but i love it anyway. This is very pretty and is comfortable to wear. Thought it would of had a bobble on with it due to it saying pony tail holder. Not the crocodile mouth ones the big chunky clip ones. My hair is too thick for it to hold. Bigger than expected but still lovely. I got it for me (adult woman with a normal amount of hair) and it looks nice. I use it to freshen up my office look. It’s just what i was looking for- a lovely big bow.

Narain Karthikeyan’s Indian Grand Prix dreams get boost

first_imgHaving declared of being assured a place for the Indian Grand Prix, Narain Karthikeyan got a shot in the arm from his team Hispania Racing on Saturday, who confirmed that he would be not only driving in India, but also be back in the cockpit during Friday’s first practice session at the September 25 Singapore Grand Prix.In a statement, Hispania said: “Karthikeyan will be back in the thick of the action as he gets behind the wheel of the HRT F111 F1 car during Friday’s first free practice session at the challenging 5.073-km Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore – the only night race on the F1 calendar. He will be driving at the inaugural Indian GP scheduled for 28- 30 October.” This has definitely been music to the ears of Karthikeyan.”I was told at the European Grand Prix that I would be driving in India.But now I have also been told I will get a chance in every race leading up to the Indian GP. I was hoping for some practice before the Indian GP, but this news is very good indeed,” the Coimbatore driver told Mail Today on Saturday.”We have a few updates in Singapore and I hope that eventually I will get to catch up with our competitors – Virgin.” When asked which circuit, apart from the Indian GP, did he look forward to driving at, the 34- year- old said: “I think the one in Japan is where I look forward to driving. I am most familiar with it and it is a challenging track.advertisement”For now, I am taking it one race at a time. The Singapore circuit will definitely be a challenge as it is new to me so I’ll have to get to grips with it fairly quickly. From what I know, it is a very demanding race physically, not only because of the temperatures and humidity but also being a high- speed street circuit it is extremely bumpy.” “Like any other street circuit, grip builds up through the weekend and car- setup will have to be constantly evolved to get the best out of it,” he said.Looking beyond the Indian GP, Karthikeyan said that he has now proved to everyone that there is still a lot of racing left in him. “I am confident that my current performances will help me in the 2012 season. There is still a lot of top level racing left in me.” HRT principal Colin Kolles commented: “It is great to have Narain back in the car as it will give him critical seat time before he drives at the Indian GP. He is the best driver to come out of the region and is undoubtedly extremely talented as he has proved through his progress this season”.With Team Lotus boss Tony Fernandes also saying that there is a strong possibility of the other Indian driver – Karun Chandhok – getting a chance to drive at the Indian Grand Prix, it seems that the inaugural F1 race might actually see two Indians behind the wheels when the lights go green on October 30.last_img read more
