Alan Pardew backs Emmanuel Adebayor to be a big hit at Crystal Palace

first_img Following a dramatic reversal in their respective fortunes, however, Pardew – whose team host Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday – is finally working with a player he clearly admires, and he will rely on him to provide his Palace team with the attacking threat they have been missing. “Of course (I thought my chance to work with Adebayor had passed),” Pardew said. “Once a player reaches that level, and they’re bouncing around the big clubs, unless I become the manager of one of those I wasn’t going to see him. “But he’s always been a player that I’ve always thought can disrupt games. He disrupts games, he can create a chaos factor, and you can’t underestimate that in the Premier League. “You need a player who’s got x-factor, and for whatever physical shape he’s in, he will create a moment that could change the game, any game, and that of course is why he’s here.” Adebayor is unlikely to start against Stoke, owing to Pardew’s belief he is short of match fitness having been a free agent for the past five months, and the manager is also without Connor Wickham after the FA suspended him for three games for violent conduct following a recent incident with Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen. “Connor Wickham’s learned a harsh lesson this week,” Pardew said. “I’ve disciplined him about the incident, that’s not what we do here. And he’s regretful of how it looked, he didn’t mean to catch him quite like that, he was trying to get the guy off who was pulling his shirt. “Nevertheless, he’s learned a tough lesson. Financially it’s going to cost him, and it’s going to cost us: three massive games he misses. “(Stoke) really get it down, have great technical players. Bojan’s been a great player for them, (Marko) Arnautovic has been one of the finds of the season in terms of adapting to the Premier League. “And they’ve always been resilient, they have the characteristics of a Crystal Palace team, defensively: very strong, not much given away, plus the flair in front makes them dangerous opponents.” Press Association Adebayor signed a short-term contract at Palace on Tuesday to finally join Pardew at Palace, 10 years after resisting the manager’s attempts to bring him to West Ham to instead sign for Arsenal, and after he had also considered bringing him to Newcastle. When the striker joined Manchester City from Arsenal in 2009 for £25million, having scored 62 goals for the London club, Pardew had just been appointed Southampton’s manager in League One and his reputation was in decline after an unsucccessful spell at Charlton. center_img Alan Pardew believes Emmanuel Adebayor can provide Crystal Palace with an “x-factor” until the end of the season, and revealed he felt his chance to manage the striker had slipped away. last_img read more

Liverpool line-up v Besiktas: No Coutinho or Henderson for Reds as Rodgers plans for weekend clash

first_imgBrendan Rodgers has taken a pretty big gamble on his quest for a top four spot by leaving Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson and Mamadou Sakho back on Merseyside, but that doesn’t mean the Liverpool boss doesn’t think his side can win the Europa League.With a massive clash against Man City waiting for them this weekend, the Reds’ paltry 48 hours to prepare for the domestic fixture has seen Rodgers take a calculated risk.That isn’t to say that he is planning on fielding a weakened side against Besiktas.While Coutinho, Henderson and Sakho watch on television, in their places are expected to come Dejan Lovren, Emre Can and Joe Allen – three very capable replacements.Liverpool were perhaps a little fortunate to pinch a 1-0 victory against their Turkish opponents in the first leg, and they may require an equal amount of luck if they are to progress to the last-16 of the competition.It is not just on the pitch there is intrigue, with three youngsters all believed to be vying for a spot on the Kop bench.Jordan Lussey, Cameron Brannagan and Jerome Sinclair are rumoured to be scrapping it out for the final spot in the matchday squad, although whether either of them will earn any game time remains unclear.A ‘leaked’ line up has been doing the rounds on Liverpool fan forums.Below is Liverpool’s ‘leaked’ starting XI: Brendan Rodgers faces a tough few days GoalkeeperThis will be a big week for Simon Mignolet, who remains under scrutiny, despite a strong show of form since his return to the starting XI. He is almost nailed on to start.DefenceWith Sakho back in England, the stage is set for Lovren to prove his worth. Alongside him will be Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure.MidfieldCan has impressed as part of a back-three, but his versatility will likely see him move into defensive midfield. Alongside him will be Allen. Lazar Markovic’s suspension means that Jordon Ibe will retain his place on one flank with Alberto Moreno on the other.AttackLiverpool will miss Coutinho’s creativity, but in his place will be plenty of pace in the shape of Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana. Daniel Sturridge remains as striker.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Besiktas? Comment below…Besiktas v Liverpool is LIVE on talkSPORT, Thursday from 6pm.

LAPD defends Muslim `mapping’

first_imgMarayati. “That’s the concern.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said the city is committed to respecting the civil and human rights of all communities. “I believe the LAPD has good intentions here,” Villaraigosa said. “They’ve been working on this issue for some time and met with a number of groups and will continue to meet with them to ensure that whatever we do here will be done properly.” The American Civil Liberties Union and several Muslim organizations will meet Thursday with police officials to discuss the policy and actions by the Los Angeles Police Department over the past 18 months. “Our concern is the potential of this,” said Ramona Ripston, executive director of the ACLU in Los Angeles. “It brings to mind fears from the ’40s and internment or the ’50s, when the government went after so-called communists. “Rather than doing this in secret, they could have held public meetings at schools or mosques. Our fears is that this will profile an entire community rather than people who present a real danger.” Bratton said one of the first assignments he gave to Cmdr. Mike Downing, who heads the anti-terrorism division, was to improve relations with the Muslim community, which numbers some 500,000 in the city. He said the action was due to an experience he had in New York City on his first day as commissioner when officers raided a Muslim Mosque in Harlem that was in a storefront. It resulted in a major controversy and drove home for him the need for police officials to be more familiar with the different communities that make up a city.

But “mapping” communities for potential Muslim terrorists is not an effective tool to help find them because there are no Muslim enclaves or neighborhoods in the United States, said Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Instead, Muslims are dispersed across America, where they tend to be economically successful, Al-Marayati said. The best way for law enforcement to track terrorists and prevent violence is through community-based policing, Al-Marayati said. “The apprehension comes when people see their civil liberties taken away when they are completely innocent,” said Al- Los Angeles officials on Friday defended a plan to identify and map the city’s Muslim community, saying it is an effort to increase understanding and knowledge and not a move to profile people based on race or religion. “I would urge people to step back and not get involved in the rhetoric,” Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton said. “We are doing a good-faith effort in a transparent way to increase understanding. We are meeting with various groups and will continue to have a dialogue. “This is about community engagement. We got hung up with one word, `mapping,’ that conjures up images of racial or religious profiling. I want us to move forward, and this is about not using the wrong words or wrong symbols.” last_img
