Press Association “I am saying the ones I pick will have belief in them – don’t worry about that.” Solskjaer added that he is looking for players with “leadership and loyalty”, suggesting he might have felt let down during a game Palace dominated. “In training and in games, you have plans, you have strategies and you follow them,” he said. Jason Puncheon’s double sandwiched a clinching goal from Cardiff old boy Joe Ledley as Palace triumphed convincingly, and Solskjaer said: “Psychologically, it is a proper kick in the teeth. “But I am not just saying it – I have got lots of fight, I have got loads of belief. I know the players, and they deserve to hear that I still believe they can do it because I see them every single day. Most of these are fantastic. “Mentally, it has been a very draining season for many – the first time in the top flight in 51 years. It showed in the stands as well. “The players heads dropped, we ran out of ideas. Of course, that is difficult. It is going to be hard to pick them up, but we have to find a way. That is just the way it is – you have to find a way. “Can we produce a miracle? That is what we have to do.” Cardiff captain Steven Caulker was at a loss to explain arguably the team’s worst performance since Solskjaer succeeded Malky Mackay earlier this season. “It’s difficult to explain it. I don’t know what went wrong. It was not a lack of trying. The boys ran their socks off,” Caulker said. “To be honest, I just think we lacked that cutting edge. That little bit of fight too. We apologise to the fans that turned up and gave us great support, as always. “We’ve given ourselves a mountain to climb now, so we are going to have to dig deep and show a lot more fight and passion than we did against Palace. It’s going to be five cup finals between now and the end of the season. “It’s still mathematically possible we can stay up, so we are not going to write ourselves off. “We’ve got confidence from how we played at the start of the season. We’ve got to get back into some kind of form, but every game now will be a fight.” From Palace’s perspective, their remarkable resurgence under manager Tony Pulis continues. It has taken them from being red-hot relegation favourites when he was appointed last November to a current position of 14th, seven points above the drop zone. And Palace striker Cameron Jerome feels that Pulis “deserves every plaudit that he gets”. Jerome said: “He had a point to prove, coming in, and he’s the sort of man who relishes this sort of challenge. If he manages to keep us in the Premier League, he’s done a fantastic job. “Tony is a tactician. He analyses every game in depth, his tactics are spot-on and he knows everything about our opponents. He is just a natural-born winner. “He wants the best out of you and he demands the best out of you on the training ground. “You can talk about other people being the special one, and this or that, but he doesn’t get enough credit for the way he plays. “If you look at the Champions League, Manchester United scored from a set-piece, Chelsea scored from a set-piece, Paris St Germain scored from a set-piece. “People say ‘oh, he (Pulis) works on his set-pieces’ but, at the highest level, set-pieces decide football games. “People say he is one-dimensional and plays long balls, but he has got Premier League experience and he knows what it takes to stay in this league.” The Norwegian struggled to contain his anger after the relegation mire deepened following a tame 3-0 surrender at home to Crystal Palace – and a reaction is expected in selection for next Saturday’s testing trip to Southampton. Asked if he felt his players had it in them to deliver over the remaining programme, which also includes an appointment with title-chasing Chelsea, Solskjaer said: “Most of them. The ones that are going to be involved. Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears ready to ditch players he feels are not up to the demands of a five-game Barclays Premier League survival fight.
Karen Kenny was reported to be “very stable” and “much brighter” in hospital on Sunday following a fall at Tramore on Saturday evening. Press Association Dr Adrian McGoldrick, senior medical officer for the Irish Turf Club, said: “She’s very stable this morning and she’s being observed for the time being. There’s no indication to operate on her. “She’s much brighter and very stable. “She’s much better than she was yesterday, they are are very happy with her and will continue to observe her for the time being.” Chris Hayes fell from Columbanus earlier in the race but he returned to the weighing room after the incident. Dr McGoldrick said: “Chris is fine. He went for X-rays, but there’s no fracture. He’s absolutely fine.” The 7lb claimer was knocked unconscious when she was unshipped from Our Pearl two furlongs from home in the opening mile-and-a-half maiden. Kenny was airlifted to Cork University Hospital, from where she underwent a brain scan, which revealed what was described as a “small subdural haemorrhage”.
Doyle would have been perfectly justified in considering his stable star a likely candidate for the Queen Mother Champion Chase, but is happy to sidestep the Prestbury Park jamboree and will instead aim towards the Normans Grove Chase at Fairyhouse before heading for the Champion Chase at Punchestown in the spring. Doyle said: “He’s certainly much improved this season and I think that’s down to him being much more relaxed. “We’re happy with the route we’re going. I just felt temperament-wise earlier in his career he wouldn’t have been the right horse to take to Cheltenham. “He’s much better now, but I still think at this stage Cheltenham wouldn’t be any help to him and there is a grand schedule at home we can stick to. “The owner is happy to go down that route and Davy (Russell) thinks that’s the way we should go, so it’s my job now just to keep him right and get him to those two races in the best possible shape.” Press Association Trainer Tim Doyle has no regrets over electing not to enter Mallowney for the Cheltenham Festival despite another runaway success at Naas on Sunday. The nine-year-old has appeared slightly more amenable this season than in the past, which has helped him raise his game to another level. He turned what looked a competitive Dan Moore Memorial Handicap Chase into a procession at Fairyhouse last month and was similarly impressive stepped up to Grade Two level in Sunday’s Paddy Power Your Local Betting Shop Chase.
Spanish giants Real, notorious for their high coaching turnover, have axed Rafael Benitez after just seven months in charge and installed Zinedine Zidane as his replacement. Pellegrini is well aware of how unforgiving life at the Bernabeu can be after being sacked after just one season in 2010 despite accruing a club record points tally in the Primera Division. There may again be speculation over Pellegrini’s future at City, with Pep Guardiola persistently linked with his position, but after three years at the Etihad Stadium he feels he has been given much greater support. The 62-year-old said of Real: “At least I finished the year! But I knew from the beginning I was not to continue for the next year. There were some important differences with the president. “I am sorry about Rafa Benitez because I think he is a manager that deserves respect but it is not strange what has happened at Real Madrid in the last five or six years. “Yes, (it is) absolutely different (at City). It is another way to think about the role of the manager. A lot of things are different. “That is why one team is changing manager every year, and at this team it is not the policy of the owners to change immediately when you don’t win a title. Different projects for each club.” Pellegrini has warned Zidane that not only will managing the team be tough, but working in those conditions particular to Real will also be highly challenging. He said: “Always to manage a big team is very difficult, Real Madrid is a very difficult team. But it is more difficult in the way they manage the club than the position of the manager.” Pellegrini’s immediate concern is Wednesday’s trip to Everton for the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final. It is the first of three clashes against the Toffees this month with a Barclays Premier League meeting next week and the cup second leg a fortnight after that. Pellegrini, who oversaw League Cup success two years ago, said: “It is important when you are in a competition always to try and win it. We have won three previous games already and now we are in a semi-final. It is a double game of 180 minutes. “I think that for the team, the club, for everyone, it is always important to win a title. It is very beautiful when you finish at Wembley, full of people, so it is very important for us to win.” Everton have earned plaudits for their attack this season but their defence has looked vulnerable, something underlined in their recent 4-3 loss to Stoke. But Pellegrini said: “We are not going to change our style of play because Everton concede less or more goals. We normally try to play as an offensive team, to create options, to try to score the most amount of goals we can. “We don’t think it will be easy because Everton conceded some goals in the last game, because every game is different. We are going to try to continue our style and I hope we can score goals.” Press Association Manuel Pellegrini is not surprised by the latest changes at former club Real Madrid and is grateful for the stability he has enjoyed at Manchester City.
As USC continues its ascent in the world of higher education, more students are competing for the same number of coveted spots. This year’s admission rate, 17.8 percent, is the lowest in USC’s 134-year history.In the past several years, freshman admission has become far more selective. Last year, USC admitted 19.7 percent of applicants, the lowest at that time. Timothy Brunold, USC’s dean of admission, called the class of 2018 the most accomplished group of first-year students in university history.“Our admission committee enjoyed getting to know the largest, most interesting group of students it has ever had the privilege of reading,” Brunold said in a press release. “USC’s distinctive academic programs, incredible diversity, vibrant campus life, global perspective and location in the heart of Los Angeles make it a very attractive option for the best and brightest students, not just from across the U.S., but from around the world.”This fall, USC received more than 51,800 applications from high school seniors competing for an estimated 2,750 places in this fall’s entering class. The university admitted 9,225 students hailing from all 50 U.S. states and 80 other countries.This year, 26 percent of incoming freshman will study in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. The Marshall School of Business and USC’s arts schools (Architecture, Cinematic Arts, Dramatic Arts, Roski School of Fine Arts and Thornton School of Music) will host 21 and 14 percent of the incoming freshman, respectively.Several incoming freshmen echoed Brunold’s statements, citing USC’s variety of strengths as their reason for enrolling. Joy Ofodu, an incoming freshman majoring in communication, said that USC offers a comprehensive experience for students.“Prospective students and families are quickly realizing that USC is the total package: career preparation, a thriving social scene, excellent athletics, incredible faculty, gorgeous campus, good food and amazing alumni networking,” Ofodu said. “There are now Trojans planted in every area of the world, and all of them are proudly talking up the university.”Exposure from college ranking websites such as US News and World Report might play a part in drawing more applicants, along with other extensive recruiting measures.“I believe [USC] has good marketing strategies that highlight the academics, sports, Trojan family and other opportunities,” said Natalie MacKraz, an incoming freshman majoring in computer science. “The explanations of the advantages of the Trojan family are especially appealing.”This year, the admissions committee organized more than 50 on- and off-campus events such as SCend Offs, receptions for incoming students and families. These human connections are what resonated with Zachary Guo, an incoming freshman majoring in computer science (games), when he was considering which college to attend.“The most effective recruiting tactic for me was staying with a current student at Explore USC,” Guo said. “Being able to ask [my host] all the questions related to my major and life at USC.”This year’s group of incoming students is also more ethnically diverse than in years past. Overall, 21 percent of the class of 2018 includes students from under represented minority populations, and 13 percent of students will be the first in their family to attend college. According to an annual report released by the Institute of International Education, USC has enrolled more international students than any other American college or university.John Lazzeroni Jr., an incoming freshman double majoring in electrical engineering and choral music, thinks USC’s diverse student body is one of the university’s biggest assets.“Everyone comes from a different place and the cultural diversity is outstanding,” said Lazzeroni, who is attending on an NROTC scholarship. “USC has a phenomenal reputation internationally, and I see people ‘fighting on’ everywhere. Nationally it is highly esteemed in many programs, especially the Thornton School of Music, and locally I get a lot of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahs’ when I say I am going.”
