Redknapp sets sights on loan deals

first_img “But I don’t see him leaving Tottenham, it’s an expensive deal and we’re looking at a couple of loans. “If we can find them we’ll do them but we need to get them over the line and at the moment we’re not close to anybody. “The chairman is trying for his life and Les Ferdinand is working on that side of it as well, but it’s not easy.” Rangers will train at England’s Burton training base at St George’s Park on Friday as they look to end a miserable run of results away from home against Stoke. Reknapp’s side have lost all 10 of their league games on road this season. “It shouldn’t be a psychological factor,” Redknapp said. “They’re passionate fans at Stoke and it’s a difficult place to go but we have to go away and pick up some points. It needs to start sooner than later. “We’ve done little bits in training but it’s about players. You can change what you eat for dinner, whether you go on the coach or the train, but it’s about players and how they perform.” QPR manager Harry Redknapp admits the club sold Jordon Mutch to raise money for permanent signings but claims Rangers are not close to striking any deals before the end of the transfer window. “We had an offer for him and it was a money back type of deal,” Redknapp said. “He’s a good lad and I liked him a lot but he hadn’t really got up and running here. “There’s plenty of potential in him but we’re looking to get one or two in so we had to try to raise some money if we could. “We’re just struggling to bring anyone in, that’s the problem.” Redknapp ruled out signing a number of players reportedly linked with the club, including Yann M’Vila, Rudy Gestede, Aaron Lennon, Dani Osvaldo, Bakary Sako and Emmanuel Adebayor. Rangers had made an enquiry for Sako but made no progress while Redknapp said any deal for Adebayor would be too expensive. “He’s at Tottenham and I don’t see it happening,” Redknapp said. “Adebayor is an excellent player. You don’t play at Arsenal, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Tottenham if you’re not a good player. Press Association Mutch joined Crystal Palace on Thursday for a fee believed to be around £4.75million, having made only 11 appearances since moving to Loftus Road last summer. Rangers had been looking primarily at loan deals but the Mutch transfer means Redknapp may be able to spend before the January transfer window shuts on Monday night. last_img read more

This even included 18 who make the trip down from Bangkok, with a big thanks to Mark Guthrie and the crew.There was a very organized send off in the morning and the weather was brilliant.

There were loads of volunteers for the day, with Bill, Bernie and Queeny passing out the on-course beers helped by Pom, Bee, Su and Nam who doled out the tournament shirts at check-in with Phil and Woody.

Metro. Pork mega-ribs, chicken satay, sliders, chili con carne and the best Buffalo chicken wings in town were happily washed down with happy hour beers from the bar.TGC’s own Capt.

Pirates hire Clint Hurdle as manager

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP)—Clint Hurdle has been hired as the Pittsburgh Pirates’ manager, saying he’s not intimidated by the franchise’s record 18 consecutive losing seasons.Hurdle replaces John Russell, who was fired the day after completing a 105-loss season—the Pirates’ worst in 58 years. CLINT HURDLE Hurdle, previously the hitting coach for the AL champion Texas Rangers, is the sixth full-time Pirates manager since the club last had a winning season in 1992.“This will eventually get done, and I don’t have a doubt it will,” Hurdle said. “I wanted to be here when it turns. … It’s a wonderful and perfect fit. It’s the right organization at the right time.”The Pirates identified Hurdle as a candidate from the start, but could not talk to him until Texas’ season ended with a loss to San Francisco in Game 5 of the World Series. He also was being considered for the Mets’ job, but was hired by Pittsburgh before having a second interview in New York, where he once played.Hurdle was attracted to the Pirates because of their core of young talent led by center fielder Andrew McCutchen, third baseman Pedro Alvarez, second baseman Neil Walker and left fielder Jose Tabata.His interview with owner Bob Nutting, president Frank Coonelly and general manager Neal Huntington was two-way — he had questions about the major league-low payroll and the commitment to winning. Apparently, he was satisfied with the answers he received.“They asked difficult questions and I asked tough questions,” he said. “They defended the fort. … I looked in their eyes and said, ‘Are you all in?’ “he said. “And they said they’re in.”The 53-year-old Hurdle turned down a second interview with the Mets, the only other club seeking a manager.Hurdle managed in Triple-A, Double-A and Single A before going 534-625 as the Rockies’ manager from 2002-09, leading them to the 2007 World Series. Before being swept by the Red Sox, the Rockies won 14 of their final 15 games, and then won seven consecutive postseason games.Under Hurdle the Rockies finished second in the NL West once, third once, fourth four times and last twice, with only one winning season.Hurdle compared the Pirates’ situation to what he faced when he arrived in Colorado, saying “Kids in my neighborhood got beat up for wearing Rockies’ jerseys.”“I’m proud to be a Pirate, and we’re not going to back down from anybody,” he said.Hurdle inherits a team that, despite promoting four everyday players to the majors since 2009, has minimal talent surrounding it. Last season, Pittsburgh had the majors’ worst ERA (5.00), second-lowest team batting average (.242) and tied for the most errors (127).Hurdle said improving the pitching staff immediately is his top priority, and he believes there is help available outside the organization.Hurdle said he didn’t demand the right to hire his entire coaching staff, and he will consider some who currently work in the organization.He also pulled out a quote he said he has carried with him for a dozen years, from Penn State coach Joe Paterno: “You’ve got to believe deep inside you’re destined to do great things.”last_img read more
