Powered by Firework Liverpool have vastly enjoyed Christmas and Boxing Day as they sit unbeaten at the summit of the Premier League, six points ahead of the rest, with half of the season already through. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola warns the leaders of the pressures at high altitudes, at the top.Advertisement Guardiola’s City have succumbed to two consecutive losses, making three in four games, as they slipped from first place to third in the Premier League, while Liverpool and Tottenham who were on their tails, have climbed above the defending English champions after Boxing Day. Now these results might be very interesting to show where this seasons’s Premiership might be headed, and while Guardiola demands change of dynamic in his squad, he warns the league leaders as they take pole position.The Spanish manager reveals when one is at the top, of course not without putting on stellar performances match in match out, how everyone expects you to win and how everyone reacts when these expectations are not met, and overall, how this is very difficult to do.Advertisement “From January, February last season people said, ‘The Premier League is over’. To live with that is not easy,” he said.  “Football is that you are able to win a lot of games and you are able to lose a lot of games. When I was at Barcelona for one period I lost four games in a row.”The City manager is confident about his players and their abilities that they would bounce back again from their recent setbacks and hopes to get back into the title race.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Road to provincials just got a whole lot tougher for LVR

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe L.V. Rogers Bombers now realize booking tickets to the B.C. High School AAA Boy’s Soccer tournament will not be as easy as in past years.Mount Baker took advantage of a short-staffed Bomber squad to squeak out a 1-0 victory in at the Wild High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament Saturday in the East Kootenay City.“We watched Baker play and knew we need some pace to stretch their wing/backs,” said Bomber coach Keith Williams. “Opportunities we had in the last few minutes proved worthless with errant shots,” Williams added. “A very excited and proud Baker team celebrated a well-deserved 1-nil victory.”The Bombers were missing Sean Hickson, Luis Loeschnik, Bruno Moro and Conrad Lanaway for the entire tournament.LVR opened the five-team, round robin tournament by stomping Selkirk Storm of Kimberley. Mitch Melanson had four goals to lead the Bombers.The Bombers then dumped Prince Charles Comets of Creston by the same 6-0 score in a very chippy contest. Luke Mori and Melanson each scored twice with Cormac Southam and Simon Sheppard adding singles. LVR’s Russell Ray was ejected from the contest.A tired and weary Bomber squad concluded the tournament by sneaking past Fernie Falcons 2-0. Mori and a converted defender to striker Kevin Lewis scored for LVR.“We were tired and sore after playing three games with one to three subs, so we took it easy (against Fernie),” Williams explained. “It was a nice way to conclude the tournament .  . . playing good patient defending (against) a weaker side.”The silver medal concludes the tournament season for LVR. The squad finished 12th at the Best of the Best High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack before capturing top spot the weekend previous in Summerland.LVR now prepares for the Kootenay Zone Final set for Wednesday, November 3 in Cranbrook.  Game time is 1 p.m. MDT.The winner advances to the Provincial AAA Tournament November 25-27 at the Burnaby Lake Sport Complex. sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more
