Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was delighted with his side’s response and recovery to a Champions League defeat after they beat Southampton 3-2 at St Mary’s.Anthony Martial took his Red Devils tally to three in as many games, while Juan Mata ultimately grabbed the winner after a brace from Graziano Pelle.English clubs typically struggle immediately after European excursions but the United players, after succumbing to PSV in midweek, left their manager highly satisfied with their performance.“I had to change my players because of tiredness and tightness and that’s a pity,” said the Dutchman.“But you know that when you see Champions League clubs they are losing after Wednesday matches. Not many clubs have won.“The tightness of the Champions League match plays a part in the last 15 minutes, but we could have scored a lot more goals.”The win sees United move up to second in the Premier League table, just two points behind leaders and arch rivals Manchester City who surrendered their 100 per cent start at home to West Ham on Saturday.
1 Swindon chairman Lee Power to take temporary charge of first-team coaching duties Swindon Town have confirmed chairman Lee Power will take temporary charge of first-team coaching duties after dismissing Mark Cooper on Saturday.Cooper steered Swindon to the League One play-offs last season, but a 2-0 loss at Millwall over the weekend left them without a league win in six matches and one point above the relegation zone.The Robins have begun drawing up a short-list for a new boss, but Power has taken up the reins in the interim.He has insisted, however, that he will “definitely not be the club’s next permanent manager”.A statement on www.swindontownfc.co.uk on Monday morning read: “The football club would like to place on record their thanks to Mark for his outstanding work ethic and commitment to the job during his two-and-a-half-year tenure. Mark did a fantastic job which culminated in the club reaching the League One play-off final last season.“Unfortunately, performances and results this term have not been as good as the club had hoped for with the current squad.“The chairman, Lee Power, thought it was time to make a change and informed Mark of his decision on Saturday night after the defeat at Millwall.“Lee will take temporary charge of the team but will definitely not be the club’s next permanent manager.“The club have already started drawing up a short-list and plan to have a manager in place by the end of the month.”Cooper chose not to take charge at Sheffield Wednesday in the summer and is understood to have also turned down Barnsley.The 46-year-old, son of former Leeds and England defender Terry, started out in management at Tamworth and has had spells in charge of Kettering [twice], Peterborough, Darlington and Telford.
1 Chelsea winger Willian insists Wednesday’s Champions League victory over Dynamo Kiev has given the Blues a much needed boost to their fragile confidence.The Brazil forward – one of the few players who cannot be blamed for the side’s early season struggles – struck a fine free-kick to earn a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge and enhance the Blues’ hopes of progression to the last-16.Chelsea’s second win in six games came amid a chorus of support for Mourinho, who was the subject of the first managerial vote of confidence of Roman Abramovich’s 12-year ownership on October 5.There was no question that results had to improve, but the victory of Dynamo and a favourable fixture list – after Saturday’s tricky Premier League clash at Stoke – has done much to boost morale at Stamford Bridge.“Confidence is coming for us and the results are coming as well,” Willian told chelseafc.com.“We have to keep going and keep fighting on the pitch. We lost some games and it’s been difficult for us but we are trying to play better.“We know we have to improve more and keep going in the same way.”Mourinho was thrilled it was Willian who delivered against Dynamo, praising the Brazilian’s improvement since he joined in August 2013 following spells at Shakhtar Donetsk and Anzhi Makhachkala.Mourinho told Chelsea TV: “If somebody deserves the winning goal I think Willian is perfect. His performance was complete.“He keeps improving in every area of the game. It was an evolution over three years. Absolutely phenomenal.“What he didn’t have was goals. This season, most of them have been set-pieces, but even at that level he’s scoring a few goals.“This one put us in a good situation to qualify for the next round and to finish first, because if we win both matches we finish first.” Chelsea winger Willian celebrates his match-winning goal
Mark Hughes has revealed he almost left match-winner Marko Arnautovic out of the Stoke starting XI for the dramatic 4-3 win over Everton.The Potters boss opted to name the same starting XI for the clash with the Toffees on Monday as he had for the impressive 2-0 home victory over Manchester United just 48 hours previously.Arnautovic, who scored a brilliant goal against United, was influential once more against Everton as he set up two goals before securing a dramatic victory with a stoppage-time penalty he had earned himself.And Hughes said of the Austria forward: “Marko did great once again, but he was struggling before the game – I have to say, he was the one big gamble we had.“I went with the same team and was happy enough with that – we had enough energy and I thought we could ride the wave of the Man United performance a little bit and see where it took us.“Marko was probably the only one I had a real doubt over, but thankfully I went with a gut feeling and he has produced the goods again.”Arnautovic actually slipped as he took the penalty and Hughes admitted he had feared the worst.The manager said: “I noticed almost immediately and thought ‘here we go’, because there have been a few penalties in recent weeks where the ground was sodden and people have missed.“But thankfully Marko didn’t and was still able to get good power on it.” Marko Arnautovic celebrates his winner for Stoke against Everton 1

Liverpool should NOT have been awarded a last-gasp penalty against Crystal Palace on Sunday, according to former Premier League referee Mark Halsey.The Reds snatched a 2-1 win at Selhurst Park in controversial fashion as Christian Benteke scored from the spot deep into injury time after Damien Delaney was deemed to have brought him down in the box.Referee Andre Marriner had appeared unsure whether to point to the spot but did so after one of his assistants, Scott Ledger, flagged.Jurgen Klopp insisted after the match it was the right call, but Palace boss Alan Pardew was fuming at the decision and accused of Benteke of diving.And, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Halsey said Pardew had every right to feel aggrieved.“I am at Manchester City’s training complex and we have got a group of American referees over doing an international development course and all to one said it is not a penalty, he has gone down far too early,” he said.“Contact doesn’t mean to say it is always going to be a free-kick or a penalty. Personally, I think Benteke has gone down far too easily.“Looking back at it, I think Andre will be a bit disappointed that they have given a penalty.“I believe Benteke has gone down far too easily and Andre should have been shouting down the headset [at his assistant referee], ‘not for me, not for me, no pen’.”

NEW YORK – Role-playing games with an Internet element are so much more captivating than equivalent electronic games where users don’t go online that they change users’ lives, cutting into their sleep and boosting the time they spend playing, according to a study published in the October issue of the journal Cyberpsychology & Behavior. Massively multiplayer online role-playing games, or MMORPGs, have become a huge phenomenon in the game world in the past five years. The largest, “World of Warcraft,” has more than 9million players. Joshua Smyth, a Syracuse University psychology professor, divided 100 student volunteers randomly into four groups. One got arcade tokens; one played the adventure game “Gauntlet: Dark Legacy” on a Sony Corp. PlayStation 2 console; the third played role-playing game “Diablo II” on computers. Only the fourth, which played MMORPG “Dark Age of Camelot,” also on computers, had online interaction. After a month, the MMORPG players reported playing on average 14.4 hours in the previous week, more than twice as much as the next most avid players, the “Diablo II” group. The “Dark Age of Camelot” players also reported significantly lower overall health and poorer sleep and were more likely to find the games interfered with their studies and social lives.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Two years after it was first alleged that De- Simone does not live in Hawthorne – a violation of his office and the law – only trustee Cristina Chiappe filed to retain her seat. Seeking her third term, Chiappe for the first time has snared the endorsements of both the teachers union and the district’s nonteaching staff. Her three competitors in the race for two spots on the board include past candidate and former district staffer Albert Sanchez, parent Eugene Krank and Alexandre Monteiro, the director of a local nonprofit. Ongoing enrollment declines and related money woes will likely carry over as the most pressing problems for a district that has recently closed its welcome center and begun putting out feelers for a potential new bond measure. By Shelly Leachman STAFF WRITER With embattled triple-term trustee Frank De- Simone opting not to seek a fourth on the Hawthorne School District board, at least one new face will join the five-person panel come Nov. 6. The 11-campus district, which includes a charter high school, has also recently launched some unique innovations designed to generate more revenue and improve education, including all-day kindergarten and on-site suspensions. All four candidates concurred that those offerings should be expanded – and more such ideas conceived and implemented – to help the district maintain solvency. Here’s a closer look at each contender and their particular priorities: Incumbent Chiappe, an adult education teacher, said she is committed to small class sizes, a tougher stance on permitting students to leave the district and competitive compensation to attract and retain teachers. The more than 30-year Hawthorne resident also expressed a desire to bolster parent involvement in the district by, among other things, promoting adult ESL classes. “Parents need to learn English so they can help their children,” she said. “To keep our own language is great – kids can be bilingual – but they need to grow and develop in an English world. Let’s start with their parents.” Hawthorne native Sanchez, who ran for the board in 2005, further characterized increasing parental involvement as being key to improving the district. A husband and father with three young boys who will eventually attend local schools, Sanchez suggested the board institute traveling meetings – “take them to the streets,” he said – to make parental attendance more likely. He also advocated for minimizing management positions to save money, improving transportation, hiring more school resource officers and implementing additional after-school and preschool programs. “If they elect me, they’re getting a parent, not a politician,” said former school safety officer Sanchez, who now works for the city of Bell Gardens. “I understand the circumstance that some of them have to go to work not once, but twice a day. They’re getting a voice ? an advocate.” A retired podiatric surgeon from Virginia, Krank is the only candidate with children currently attending Hawthorne schools. He has a 13-year-old at the charter high school and 11-year-old twins at Hawthorne Middle School. A frequent campus volunteer, he would seek to improve test scores and financial efficiency. He also called parental involvement a top priority, asserting that he envisions his potential role on the board as a liaison between parents and the district. “We often focus on the negative – the gangs, the disobedient kids,” Krank said. “But a lot of parents, if we give them hope, I know that they would come to school here. ? I think I can inspire that within parents and the community.” Finally, Monteiro, who runs the nonprofit Moneta Gardens Improvement Inc., prioritized an image improvement for the district, expressing a belief that building community trust would help bolster enrollment. A native of the Cape Verde Islands, off the west coast of Africa, Monteiro holds a master’s degree in education from California State University, Dominguez Hills. He is a staunch advocate for early childhood education, universal preschool, tutoring and after-school programs. “I believe there are a lot of resources out there that the district has not tapped into, like after-school supplemental money,” he said. “There is already a waiting list for children to get into the Hawthorne School District after-school program. If they apply for more dollars, they could service more children.” [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
