Swansea manager Garry Monk expresses concern after Norwich edge victory

first_img “Why? I haven’t got any sympathy,” he said. “Not at all. We’ve had a lot of possession and talked about how well we played and not been winning, So what we’ve done is we went for the opposite. “We conceded possession but looked much more threatening and had a lot more chances than Swansea. “The bottom line is who scored and who didn’t score, that’s who deserves to win the game because they’ve done enough. It’s not about possession.” Jonny Howson’s second-half header left them with only one win since August, meaning that after a promising start to the season they will join the battle against relegation unless they swiftly improve. Monk has in recent months been described as a potential future England manager so his recent inability to inspire Swansea comes as a surprise, but he dismissed suggestions his team are lacking in ideas and remained adamant that they will recover. “Of course I’m concerned,” the Swansea manager said. “We’re here to win games and get points. In my time as manager we’ve done that very well. These difficult periods are part of it and part of management. I understand what needs to be done, but of course it’s a concern. “It’s not the lowest (I’ve felt). It’s not a good moment for myself, but I’m a fighter. I’ve been at the core of that (at Swansea as a club) for a long, long time and I understand that. “We had total control up until their goal, albeit we weren’t sharp enough in that final third up to that point, which is disappointing, but we had total control. “We get caught with a lack of concentration which is costing us dearly at the moment, dearly. We end up losing the game from that one lapse of concentration, which is frustrating. “Any set-piece is a soft goal, bitterly disappointed. Ultimately it’s cost us the game. “No (we don’t lack a Plan B), we just didn’t do enough with the ball in the final third. To come here and have total domination of them was part of our plan and we executed that well. “The key to it all is (the players are) good enough. It’s that little bit of extra that’s needed right now and it’s for me to drag that out of the players and for themselves to focus on that as well.” Norwich manager Alex Neil, who played alongside Monk at Barnsley 11 years ago, insisted that his side deserved victory and said that, regardless of his friendship with the Swansea manager, he had no sympathy for his present plight. Garry Monk has revealed his “concern” after Swansea’s 1-0 Premier League defeat at Norwich extended their disappointing run. Press Associationlast_img read more

DPS opens art show at Galen Center

first_imgOfficers from the Department of Public Safety opened their weeklong art exhibit, “Beyond the Badge,” in the Galen Center on Tuesday afternoon.Hidden talent · Sergeant Rick Gonzales poses next to his painting, “The Mexican,” at the art exhibit “Beyond the Badge” in the Galen Center. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanThis is the first year DPS has thrown an art show, and it displays work from DPS officers and staff, including paintings, drawings and poetry.Sergeant Rick Gonzalez came up with the idea about a year ago and approached Elaine Ray, executive assistant to DPS Chief Thomas, about starting the show after Ray had mentioned that she had taken art classes over the years.“[Sergeant Gonzalez] asked me to help him out and maybe get an art show going, so it’s been about a year and a half, and it was largely his idea,” Ray said.DPS Chief John Thomas was surprised by the talent shown in the officers’ paintings and its effect on how the officers are viewed by the campus community.“I think it’s a great opportunity for the university campus community to see DPS officers in a nontraditional light and for them to showcase their talent,” Thomas said.Ray had several works included in the display, in one of which using skateboards as the canvas and creates a painting that counters around the theme of punk rock.“I have always been into punk rock and skateboarding, because all my guy friends were skateboarders,” she said.Her skateboard work displays the band Bad Brains, pioneers of hard core punk, since she thought skateboard and punk rock would go well together. Ray decided to display this part of her childhood in her paintings.Though she had not painted in 10 years prior to this display, she had the chance to teach in an art class for the DPS cadet program.“I swear, every kid in that class had some sort of skill, and there were probably about five true, natural artists,” she said.After seeing the positive effects of art classes on the cadet program, the officers wanted to put together more art classes and expand to areas such as painting and poetry.Through the art exhibit, DPS is trying to better connect to student life, Ray said. These connections can be made by showing the various interests that these officers have, behind the uniforms and badges.“It represents [that] we all have our own lives,” she said. “Unless someone really just sat me down and asked me about how I grew up, they wouldn’t know what I was into.”The exhibition also included poetry, particularly from community service officer Anette Jacobs. Jacobs attended the School of Dramatic Arts at USC. One of her poems, “Ancestors in the Wind,” was inspired by her grandmother’s battle with Alzeimer’s disease. A second poem was written on the morning of the memorial service for deceased DPS Officer Keith Lawrence and his fiancee, Monica Quan.Ray said DPS wants to organize different ways to collaborate with the students, both through crime prevention and through the Greek community. An art show is one of the ways in which the department aims to do this.“We try to think of ways to create more of a bond, rather than a fight,” Ray said.After having worked in police enforcement for many years, Thomas says one of the biggest challenges is finding a way to humanize officers.“In my 30 years in law enforcement, that’s always been one of the challenges, is how do you humanize [the officers] and make people understand that people that choose these professions in police work — they’re humans,” Thomas said.Editors note: This post has been updated.last_img read more

PNG, Samoa, Tonga prime opposition for Fiji: Ryan

first_imgRyan told PACNEWS upon their arrival at Jackson International Airport  Tuesday that Samoa is always a tough team to play against in any 7s tournament.“ I haven’t seen the team yet  so I don’t know the strength of the side  they brought over  but they will be looking to qualify for Olympics in November, so I’m sure with the new coach as well  they send for this tournament I’m sure they will be a huge threat as well .They always tough to play against.“I think PNG, Tonga and Samoa this three will make up a prime opposition this week,” Ryan told PACNEWS.He said although there were several changes in the team, he is adamant the team will deliver.“We obviously got a good squad here for this week’s competition.  Seven changes from the team that played in London gives me chance to blood in new players.“We just had two days training before we came out here. We ‘ve been under cooked  but it’s going to be a long three days I’m sure they will learn on the field and it should be a great tournament for us,” he said.Ryan said they want to maintain Fiji’s 7s team status as the number one team in World Rugby 7s series and the expectation from the public in Fiji is nothing less a win for a gold medal.“The boys had done their share and they are on a high and the support is huge at the moment where ever we go, so it’s good hopefully they will rise up to the challenge of being the best team in the world that means every game you have to defend that title in my mind and that will start with PNG.“They know, they understand   how the selection been made and they also know like I do the way   the team is selected for Fiji. There is an expectation they will do well, obviously the team I think has lost a couple of Pacific Games final to Samoa. We certainly keen to trying keep this good vibe around Fiji sevens and make sure that we can do our best and hopefully win the gold medal on Friday night,” a confident Ryan said.last_img read more
