Tedeschi Trucks Band Honors George Harrison’s Birthday In DC Finale

first_imgYesterday marked what would have been the 74th birthday of the late George Harrison, an iconic musician who not only was a member of The Beatles, but maintained a highly active solo career until his untimely death. With many of his songs in their repertoire, it’s no surprise that the Tedeschi Trucks Band would use the occasion to honor Harrison, playing both “Wah Wah” and “Something” on the final night of their three night stand at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC.Check out the video of “Something” below, courtesy of rangersdcfan.Of course, there were plenty of classics played throughout the night, including takes on Leon Russell’s “A Song For You,” Blind Willie McTell’s “Statesboro Blues,” and Elmore James’ “The Sky Is Crying.” See videos for all of those and more, below, as uploaded by rangersdcfan.

first_imgZimbabwe wield axe in pursuit of Sunday bestJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP |  Zimbabwe coach Sunday Chidzambwa has wielded the axe for an African Nations Championship qualifier against Namibia Sunday, hoping to avoid going from hero to zero within 15 days.The former national team captain and centre-back was hailed as a national hero after guiding his country to victory in the COSAFA Cup southern Africa tournament this month.But the “Warriors” suffered a surprise 1-0 away defeat by rusty Namibia last weekend in the first leg of a second round qualifier for the 2018 Nations Championship in Kenya.Chidzambwa reacted to the loss in Windhoek by ditching four players and calling up 11 as he increased his squad to 25 players for the match at the National Sports Stadium in Harare.He believes his side underestimated opponents who have not played competitively for more than a year because of feud between Namibian football association and league officials.“I feel there was a bit of complacency among my boys because they failed to perform as they normally do,” he told reporters in the Zimbabwe capital.“We have increased the size of the squad to give us more options while dropping some players nad bringing in others. Hopefully, the reshuffle will have the desired effect.”Defender Ocean Mushure and midfielder Talent Chawapiwa, scorers in the 3-1 COSAFA Cup final triumph over Zambia in South Africa, both survived the chop.Namibia coach Ricardo Mannetti, another former national team star-cum-coach, insists his team remain underdogs despite winning the first leg without conceding a goal.“Zimbabwe remain favourites as they have just won the COSAFA Cup, have home advantage and lots of depth in their squad,” he said after arriving in Harare.“We must show the same fighting spirit, good attitude and ability to play a high-tempo game as in Windhoek to have any chance of survival.”Qualifying for the Nations Championship — a biennial competition restricted to home-based footballers — is staged regionally to curb travel time and costs.Another intriguing south zone fixture pits Lesotho against the Comoros in Maseru, an often chilly capital city at this time of year during the southern hemisphere winter.Comoros hold a 2-0 advantage through goals from Ibroihim Youssouf and Raidou Boina Bacar as they seek overall success and a date with Zimbabwe or Namibia during August.Rwanda and Uganda fancied to advanceUganda and 2016 Nations Championship hosts Rwanda are set to advance in the east zone afer forcing draws away to South Sudan and Tanzania respectively.Sudan visit Burundi for a delayed first leg and Ethiopia received a walkover when the Djibouti national team was dissolved after a 5-1 first leg drubbing at home.In the west, Benin, Guinea, 2016 runners-up Mali, Mauritania and Senegal enjoy home advantage and are likely to emerge overall winners.Share on: WhatsApp The Uganda and South Sudan team before the return leg kicked off on Saturday at Lugogo.

Pochettino admits ‘reality’ check for struggling Spurs

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is struggling to turn his team’s fortunes around © AFP/File / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 1 – Tottenham’s alarming loss of form threatens to take the gloss off the long-anticipated opening of their flashy new stadium as they contemplate a season without Champions League football.Mauricio Pochettino’s side stayed in touch with Liverpool and Manchester City for two-thirds of the season — as recently as February 2, Spurs were in second place in the Premier League. But they are now 16 points adrift of City and 18 behind Liverpool and a single point separates them from Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for the final two Champions League qualification spots.“It’s a little bit of a shame that we’re not there fighting as well,” admitted Pochettino after Tottenham’s defeat at Liverpool on Sunday, courtesy of an own goal from Toby Alderweireld.“We were but in the last few weeks we have started to find our reality, our place.”Despite their recent run of bad results, Spurs under Pochettino have punched above their weight, without a single signing in the past 15 months and a wage bill that amounts to a fraction of their top-six rivals.Pochettino was keen to stress that point, calling his players “heroes” for coping with the demands of a stretched squad, which has had to cope with the impact of fatigue on eight World Cup semi-finalists, and the disruption of playing at Wembley while waiting for their new stadium to be ready.Tottenham will host Crystal Palace in the first Premier League match in their new stadium © AFP/File / Daniel LEAL-OLIVAS“When someone wants to give an opinion about the team or the club, always you need to put in the circumstances. Not only to judge Tottenham because you see them play or their position in the table,” added Pochettino.“After nearly two years of playing at Wembley. Moving from one stadium to another, now moving again. I think my players are heroes and deserve a lot of credit.”Spurs will finally play their first match at their new 62,000-capacity ground against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.– Champions League riches –They are into the Champions League quarter-finals for just the third time in their history, where they will face Manchester City, with the new stadium designed to solidify their position among Europe’s elite and ensure they can compete financially in the future.Much of that, though, depends on the revenue from the Champions League football they have become used to under Pochettino.Despite a fourth defeat in five Premier League games, there were also green shoots of recovery for the Argentine to hold onto at Anfield.But for Moussa Sissoko’s glaring miss five minutes from time and Hugo Lloris’s latest calamitous error in goal, Spurs should have become the first side to beat Liverpool on home soil for nearly two years in the Premier League.Tottenham’s position in the battle for a top-four finish is now a precarious one. They could even find themselves down in fifth place by kick-off on Wednesday should Arsenal and Manchester United both avoid defeat in their games before then.However, five of their remaining seven Premier League games will be at their new home and against meek opposition in Huddersfield, Brighton, West Ham and Everton after Palace’s visit.“We need to forget everything and be focused that we have ahead a mini-league that starts on Wednesday in our new stadium and that must be a big boost for everyone,” added Pochettino.“It’s in our hands to be in the top four.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
