Play-off plan will not include Wembley

first_img Press Association If the two London clubs finish the season level on points, goal difference and goals scored, a play-off will be necessary to decide third place and the automatic Champions League qualification spot. That scenario could happen if the Gunners win 2-1 at Newcastle and Chelsea draw 0-0 at home to Everton, or any scoreline where Chelsea draw and Arsenal score two more goals than them and win by the odd goal. Premier League chiefs will draw up contingency plans this week for a possible play-off between Arsenal and Chelsea but Wembley Stadium is unlikely to be pencilled in as the venue.center_img The problem for the Premier League would be where and when to play such a match and officials will start planning for such an event, while hoping the results on Sunday do not present them with the headache. The league carried out similar contingency planning back in 1996 when Manchester United and Newcastle had very similar points and goals totals going into the last few matches of the season, and even booked Wembley and printed some tickets for a possible title play-off. In the event, United went on to win the title by four points. This time, the demands on Wembley means fitting in a play-off may prove impossible – the Champions League final and Football League play-off finals are already booked there, plus England’s friendly against the Republic of Ireland on May 29. A more likely venue would be West Ham’s stadium but there are possible fixture clashes as Chelsea have an end-of-season tour to the USA to play two friendlies against Manchester City next week. However, it could be that the Premier League insist that a play-off takes priority. There are also England friendlies to consider – as well as the Republic of Ireland match England then travel to Rio de Janeiro to play Brazil on June 2. Neither Chelsea nor Arsenal would want the season to stretch into June but the play-off regulation is part of Premier League rules. They state: “If at the end of the season… the question of qualification for other competitions cannot be determined because two or more clubs are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored, the clubs concerned shall play off one or more deciding league matches on neutral grounds, the format, timing and venue of which shall be determined by the board.” last_img read more

McKay relishing chance to impress

first_img Press Association But the absence of Kyle Lafferty, Martin Paterson and Jamie Ward on the current trip saw him make the starting XI for the first time in the 1-0 defeat to Uruguay on Friday. He worked tirelessly without a sight of goal but has another chance to catch the eye in Chile on Wednesday night and it is one he is desperate to take. “It was good to get a start against top-class opposition. I ‘ve been in and around for 18 months or so now and I think the time was right for me to get a start,” he said. “Hopefully I’ve done okay and I’m in the thoughts of the manager now. “Every time I come away I want to impress as much as I can, whether it’s training or games. Hopefully I’ve done that this week and there’s another game to go so there’s another chance to go again. “If the manager picks me I’ll be ready to go. “I’m a striker, I want to go out and score goals and it would be nice to grab one in Chile.” McKay, a prolific scorer for Caley over the last two seasons, has been part of the Northern Ireland set-up for some time but has struggled for regular game time since making his debut in February 2013. His first five caps all came as a substitute and in Cyprus he was replaced just 17 minutes after coming off the bench following Gareth McAuley’s sending off. center_img Inverness striker Billy McKay is relishing the chance to impress Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill in South America.last_img read more

Magic Johnson will not like Lakers’ 98-95 win over Sacramento Kings

first_imgMagic Johnson will not feel happy about this. The Lakers’ 98-95 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday at Staples Center dampens Johnson’s hope that the Lakers plummet in hopes of maximizing their odds at a high draft pick.“I hope the Lakers lose every game, because if you’re going to lose, lose,” Johnson told Newsday during a promotional appearance on Tuesday in New York City. “You either have to be great or you have to be bad, to get a good (draft) pick.”Lakers coach Byron Scott let out a boisterous laugh, foreshadowing what Scott said he plans to write in a text message to Johnson. “LOL,” said Scott, before turning serious.“That’s easy to say, but when you’re behind the scenes and you’re in the trenches and you’re coaching, that’s not something you want to do,” Scott said. “If you lose games it’s one thing. But to go out and try to lose, that’s a different story.”The Lakers (6-16) instead offered different statements.The Lakers secured the win based on a number of ingredients. They played good enough defense against the Kings (11-11) for the non-sellout crowd of 18,267 to walk away with free tacos. Kobe Bryant posted 32 points on 11-of-27 shooting and an 8-of-8 mark from the foul line. Carlos Boozer’s 15 points off the bench happened a day after he publicly questioned Scott benching him. “He’s not the coach,” said Scott, who has no plans to discuss the situation with Boozer. “It’s my opinion. So as a coach, sometimes you have to make tough decisions.” Meanwhile, the Lakers also wore “I can’t breathe” T-shirts during pregame warmups, referring to Eric Garner’s last words before a police officer choked the young African American to death in New York. Other NBA stars, such as Chicago’s Derrick Rose and Cleveland’s LeBron James, wore the T-shirt in recent days. The Lakers also remained defiant that Johnson’s argument does not reflect team policy even if he won five NBA championships with the Lakers and played with Scott during the Showtime Era. “We always try to win,” GM Mitch Kupchak told L.A. Newspaper Group. “You cannot manipulate this machine.”If the Lakers do not land a top five pick, the Lakers would have to trade it to Phoenix as part of the Steve Nash trade two years ago. After ending last season with a 27-55 record, the Lakers selected Kentucky forward Julius Randle seventh overall. But Randle suffered a season-ending right leg injury in the season opener. He was seen at Staples Center on Tuesday walking around on one crutch. “I know Earvin and how competitive he is and understand where he’s coming from,” Scott said. “But to lose every game and get the No. 1 pick? That doesn’t guarantee you get the No. 1 pick.”Scott’s first season with the former New Orleans Hornets ended with a 18-64 record in 2004-05 before landing the fourth overall pick to select Chris Paul. Scott’s first season with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-11 ended with a 19-63 record before landing the first overall pick for Kyrie Irving. “We never went in trying to lose games,” Scott said. “Karma is a you know what. If you don’t try to win games, you don’t get the first pick. If you go out and play hard, hopefully you get rewarded the right way.”But can the Lakers play well enough to make the playoffs?“I’d like to see us play better,” Kupchak said. “Then we’ll go from there.” The Lakers at least made one small step against the Kings, much against Johnson’s wishes. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
