Roma full-back Alessandro Florenzi Barcelona have identified Arsenal and Tottenham target Alessandro Florenzi as the long-term successor to flying full-back Dani Alves.The north London rivals are both keeping close tabs on the versatile 24-year-old, who has played in midfield, defence and attack for AS Roma.The highly rated 24-year-old, who has scored two goals in 11 Serie A outings this season, is under contract until 2019 and will not come cheap.But, according to reports in Spain, Barcelona are ready to firm up their interest with a bid as they want to mould Florenzi into the man to replace Alves.The Brazilian has become arguably the best right-back in world football and is approaching 400 La Liga appearances.Barca, however, know he can’t go on forever and are already making plans for the future, with Florenzi in their sights. 1
Jamie Vardy is set to make his Leicester comeback after returning to full training. The England striker joined in with the Foxes squad on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham. Vardy missed Sunday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw at White Hart Lane as he was recovering from a minor groin operation earlier this month. He had done some light training away from the squad on Monday but has now rejoined the group and the Foxes expect to have him available to face Spurs. Claudio Ranieri had planned to assess his 15-goal top scorer on Tuesday and believed Vardy, who has not netted in his last four games, would be ready. He said on Monday: “Jamie had a problem for a month, more or less, and he continued to play. Now without the problem he is much better. I’ll see if he starts from the beginning or if he is ready to come with me on the bench. Every time he wants to play, I know him.”The Foxes, second in the table and two points behind leaders Arsenal, are four points ahead of Tottenham but have not won in their last four games in all competitions.

Jermaine Pennant 1 Jermaine Pennant has done a deal to make him the highest paid player in the history of Singapore football.The former Arsenal and Liverpool player has agreed terms with S-League Tampines Rovers following a successful one-week trial period.Speaking to local media, Pennant said: “Everything has been positive since I landed. You can expect some news either later today or tomorrow.”Tampines Rovers general manager Desmund Khusnin confirmed a deal is “very close to being completed”.Pennant, 33, this week, left Wigan at the end of last season and despite the record-breaking deal, will still be taking a 70 per cent pay cut from his £25,000-a-week Championship wages.The former England under-21 international added: “I knew before I flew here I would have to take a big pay cut but you must look at the bigger picture.“Furthermore, there are other things here in Singapore that I value much more than money,” he told TODAY.Pennant also claimed he had rival offers from other countries in Asia, but stated: “The chairman here has a project and I am happy with it. So, sorry to the rest, but I am staying in Singapore.”
Louis van Gaal believes people are “living in the past” if they think Manchester United and Liverpool are above Europe’s second-tier competition.The Europa League last-16 has thrown up a mouth-watering first continental clash between the north-west rivals, but the fact they are going toe-to-toe in this competition only underlines how far the most successful clubs in English football history have fallen recently.United and Liverpool have won 20 and 18 league titles, respectively, along with a combined eight European Cups – a history of success that Van Gaal believes came during a bygone era.“In football, it’s normal,” the Reds manager said of teams falling from the summit.“It’s not normal that one team is dominating for 20 years in a row (as) the champion.”When put to Van Gaal that Liverpool and United had dominated for decades, he responded: “It was another time, it was another time.“You live in the past, you live in the past and you have to live in the present, I think.”That current state of affairs domestically means the Europa League may well offer both clubs their best chance of reaching the Champions League.United sit sixth in the Barclays Premier League, three points off the top four, and Liverpool are a place and three points worse off, albeit with a match in hand.However, Europa League glory would guarantee a place at European football’s top table regardless of league performance, adding extra motivation – if any was needed – for the last-16 tie.“Liverpool – Manchester United is always a big game traditionally,” Van Gaal said ahead of Thursday’s first leg.“It’s historic and, especially because both teams fight for a Champions League position, it’s a big game for both sides.”Thursday’s trip to Anfield offers Van Gaal the chance to win a fifth successive competitive match against Liverpool.It is feat that would fill the Dutchman with pride, even if he has seemingly divorced himself from the magnitude of emotions attached to the derby.“I think football in England is very deep in the life of the people,” the United boss said.“Of course I have noticed that also in Spain and in Germany, but that was less so deep than here so it is fantastic to see that.“That’s also one aspect as to why I wanted to come here, to have that experience.“Sometimes I can see too much but I like it to see (it) because you can see the heart of the club and also the feeling that they are with you every game.“So that is nice for the players, I think, but also nice for the manager.“Not all the people are like that but several people are thinking they are the enemy.“I am not thinking like that, I am thinking like they are an opponent and a lot of fans want to beat the opponent.”Van Gaal finds it “curious” that United have enjoyed such a good run against Liverpool during his time at the helm, especially having struggled against some lesser teams.West Brom are one such example and deservedly beat 10-man United 1-0 at The Hawthorns on Sunday, when Juan Mata’s uncharacteristic red card was catalyst to their downfall.Marouane Fellaini was on the bench in the West Midlands and is in contention to feature in the Europa League first leg, which could also witness Antonio Valencia’s return from a long-standing foot injury.“I don’t think (any new players shall be available), but Valencia is of course fit enough to be on the bench,” Van Gaal added. “But to play 90 minutes, I don’t think so.“Valencia is coming back, (Bastian) Schweinsteiger is coming back.“I think a lot shall come back in March but when they come back it is not so easy to decide if they can cope with the rhythm of a match because they are fit to train with us.“But, for example, Schweinsteiger only one has one training session with us behind him.“Valencia has a week so he is much closer to be on the bench, for example, but not to play in the (entire) match. That is different.” Louis van Gaal, the Manchester United manager 1
From staff reports Ana Maricic led San Pedro with 12 kills in a 25-22, 22-25, 25-18, 25-16 Marine League victory against visiting Carson on Monday, helping the Pirates complete a season sweep of the Colts. “I was expecting them to come back stronger, and it was a very close match, but we were able to keep our pace steady,” San Pedro coach Samuel Tejada said of Carson, which previously lost to San Pedro in three games. Junior libero Holly Stevens, who was moved up from junior varsity after her performance in a tournament, had seven aces and 25 digs for San Pedro. Stevens, a softball star for the Pirates, is fitting in nicely with the volleyball team. Redondo’s Della Taylor improved to 44-0 on the season in a 17-1 nonleague victory at Bishop Montgomery. Taylor won both sets she played, losing just one game. Sister Elle Taylor swept her three singles sets for Redondo.

IRVINE – Favorable weather should help firefighters gain ground on the Santiago fire today. “Today will be the best day of the week for firefighters,” said National Weather Service forecaster Andrew Rorke said. A marine layer along the coast will provide cooler weather and higher relative humidities, he said, but added that the absence of strong winds was most important. Temperatures in the burn area are forecast top out in the upper 80s today. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Unusually strong Santa Ana winds earlier this week produced some gusts that howled over Southland mountaintops around 100 mph. Looking ahead, Sunday could prove a problem for fire crews, Rorke said. Drier weather with winds of 15-25 mph below canyons and passes are forecast, he said. While wildfires continue to burn out of control in Orange and San Diego counties, the only fire still burning in Los Angeles County was the Ranch fire near Castaic, which is about 80 percent contained. The roughly 56,200-acre Ranch fire started Saturday evening near Townsend Peak in the Angeles National Forest; it has destroyed one home and eight outbuildings, according to the U.S. Forest Service. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hull beat Derby 3-0 in the first leg of their semi-final play-off 1 Hull have taken command of their Championship play-off semi-final with a 3-0 first leg win against Derby at the iPro.The visitors soaked up the early pressure before putting themselves firmly in the driving seat with Wembley in their sights.Returning to the scene of a 4-0 thrashing during the regular season just last month, Steve Bruce’s team looked set for another difficult day but then Abel Hernandez struck after half an hour.As Derby’s confidence drained, a Jason Shackell own goal five minutes before half-time put Hull in control.The hosts toiled in the second half as they tried in vain to get back into the game, though Andy Robertson delivered what could be a killer blow to Derby’s promotion hopes deep in injury time on the break to seal what was a comfortable 3-0 win ahead of the return leg on Tuesday night.
WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court struggled Wednesday over how much justice is enough for foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, with the Bush administration resisting pleas for prompt court hearings. Even if the court rules quickly and decisively for the detainees, the legal fight could still be around when a new president takes office in 13 months. Most questions from the justices seemed to accept that the 305 men held at the U.S. naval base in Cuba, many for nearly six years, have some rights to challenge their detention. Instead, the key question that emerged Wednesday was whether the limited court review created by the Bush administration and Congress in response to earlier Supreme Court rulings for the detainees is good enough. The court has twice ruled that people held there without charges can go into civilian courts to seek their freedom. Each time, the administration and Congress, then controlled by Republicans, has changed the law to try to close the courthouse doors to the detainees. Clement, in his written argument, said foreigners captured and held outside the United States “have no constitutional rights to petition our courts for a writ of habeas corpus.” Seth Waxman, the detainees’ lawyer, said the review process is “structurally flawed” and pleaded for prompt hearings for his clients. Detainees can’t introduce evidence of their innocence and have no right to a lawyer, Waxman said. The Washington appeals court “has already said it will not hear any new evidence,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Justice Stephen Breyer tried to capture the inadequacy of the review process when he spoke of a detainee who, after six years in jail, may want to argue that the Constitution says he must be charged or released. “I don’t see anything,” Breyer said, “that permits me to make that argument. So I’m asking you: Where can you make that argument?” Solicitor General Paul Clement, the Bush administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer, replied, “I’m not sure that he could make that argument.” Breyer said: “Exactly.” The administration opened the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to hold enemy combatants, people suspected of ties to al-Qaida or the Taliban.

Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who is the spiritual leader of the world’s Anglicans, wished Blair the best in his spiritual journey. “Tony Blair has my prayers and good wishes as he takes this step in his Christian pilgrimage. A great Catholic writer of the last century said that the only reason for moving from one Christian family to another was to deepen one’s relationship with God. I pray that this will be the result of Tony Blair’s decision in his personal life.” Blair, who is now a Middle East peace envoy, met Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican in June. LONDON – Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has left the Church of England and converted to Catholicism, the faith of his wife and children. Blair converted during a Mass Friday night at the private London chapel of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, the church said. “I’m very glad to welcome Tony Blair into the Catholic Church,” Murphy-O’Connor said. The church said Blair had been a regular worshipper at Mass with his family and in recent months had been following a program leading to his reception into the church. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said the path Blair has been on “was not improvised, has lasted a long time and has been deep and serious.” Lombardi added that the Catholic community was “happy to welcome such a prominent person … at the end of a deeply spiritual personal path.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
