ESSEX have won their first County Championship title since 1992. Ryan ten Doeschate’s team put themselves on the brink of glory when they trounced Warwickshire by an innings inside three days at Edgbaston.But after their eighth victory of a remarkable season, Essex had to wait for second-placed Lancashire’s failure to win away to Somerset to be confirmed before they could start celebrating the silverware.Lancashire duly lost by seven wickets at Taunton on Friday morning, and Essex have therefore completed their task with two matches to spare – in their first season back in the top flight following promotion from Specsavers Division Two last summer.It is their seventh title, all their previous successes coming between 1979 and their last one in 1992 when they retained the championship during the all-conquering years of England stars such as Graham Gooch, Nasser Hussain and Derek Pringle.The glory days have returned under Ten Doeschate and coach Chris Silverwood, the former England bowler who was promoted to his position for the start of the 2016 season and has immediately delivered back-to-back championship seasons in Division Two and then Division One.Confirmation of Lancashire’s defeat came just after noon, while Essex were on their team coach back to Chelmsford – having celebrated their win over Warwickshire if not yet the title in Birmingham the previous evening.After word came through on the M40, though, Essex and their players were quick to mark the occasion via their social media accounts.Leading wicket-taker Jamie Porter simply tweeted his club’s nickname, with a few extra letters for emphasis: “You eeeaaaggllreeeesssssssssssssssssssssssssss”.There were also instant good wishes from outside the club, England and Nottinghamshire seamer Stuart Broad posting: “Congrats to everyone at EssexCricket. County Champions and greatly deserved!”Essex chief executive Derek Bowden, waiting for the players and coaching staff to arrive in Chelmsford, spoke of his admiration for what they have achieved.“It’s fantastic – a great result for the team, a great result for the club,” he told Sky Sports News.“It’s absolutely wonderful. It’s been a great team effort, great leadership from Chris Silverwood and his team and great captaincy this year.“The team spirit has been fantastic, home-grown talent and the whole club working together as one team.”(The Independent)
Just days after losing Super Bowl LI, the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons hired former Trojan head coach Steve Sarkisian to take over duties as offensive coordinator. The move comes after the Falcons’ former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan accepted a head coaching job with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday afternoon.After spending five years at USC as quarterbacks coach, offensive coordinator and assistant head coach, Sarkisian got his first opportunity as a head coach at Washington in 2009. After Lane Kiffin, the current head coach of Florida Atlantic, was fired on the airport tarmac, Sarkisian left Washington to lead USC in 2013.Sarkisian’s tenure at USC was one marked by controversy. A promising head coaching career was nearly derailed when Sarkisian showed up intoxicated to several functions.After being fired in the middle of the 2015 season, Sarkisian had a stint as a television analyst to stay involved in the game, and he got another opportunity when he joined another former USC head coach in Kiffin at perennial powerhouse Alabama, taking a job as an offensive consultant. Sarkisian was then thrust into the role of offensive coordinator in the 2017 National Championship when Kiffin was dismissed a week before the season’s end.Sarkisian will now go from the NCAA’s runner-up to the NFL’s. He steps into a seemingly ideal scenario for a promotion to the NFL: With MVP Matt Ryan at quarterback and an elite wide receiver in Julio Jones, Sarkisian has a bevy of weapons to work with.Falcons head coach Dan Quinn previously worked under Pete Carroll with the Seattle Seahawks, serving as the defensive coordinator during Seattle’s Super Bowl-winning season, and Quinn now brings in Sarkisian to run the offense while he oversees everything else. Entering his first year in the NFL since he was a quarterbacks coach for the Oakland Raiders in 2004, Sarkisian will look to replicate the success that Shanahan had with the Falcons’ offense this season.
“They scored twice by winning the second ball. We still had to stay in the game, but as soon as we had a bit of control, you saw the game wasn’t decided.“We have to take the result but it still feels a bit rubbish and now we have to use Anfield one more time.”Captain Jordan Henderson said Liverpool can keep their Champions League destiny in their own hands by beating Napoli.“We are disappointed because we think we are good enough to come here and win,” he said.“It wasn’t our night in the end but we had the boost at half-time and we kept going. Now we have just got to keep it in our own hands by winning back at Anfield.”“We now have another big game at Anfield and we can get through that and into the next round,” he added. Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his team “looked like butchers” because of the reactions of the Paris Saint-Germain players to challenges during the French team’s 2-1 Champions League win on Wednesday.A “little hurdle we had to overcome was the 500,000 disruptions in the second half and the referee still thinks he did everything right,” the German said.“We are one of the fairest teams in England but tonight we looked like butchers,” he added.Juan Bernat and Neymar scored to put PSG in control in the first half in the French capital, but a James Milner penalty on the stroke of half-time ensured the pivotal group game remained in the balance until the death.Liverpool — beaten in each of their past five games away from Anfield in the Champions League — now face the real prospect of missing out on the knockout stages just six months after reaching the final against Real Madrid.Napoli beat Red Star Belgrade 3-1 on Wednesday and Liverpool will have to win by two clear goals or 1-0 at home to the Italians in a fortnight to ensure they progress.“The start was like what we expected, it was very wild and intense and they took all the risks,” Klopp told BT Sport.
