Taylor contented despite limited role at World T20

first_imgWest Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor said though he only played in one of six matches in the just-concluded ICC World Twenty20 World Cup in India, he is more than elated that the team was able to recapture the crown.”It’s a team effort, and a win is a win,” he said, shortly after the arrival of the Jamaican members of the team on Tuesday in Kingston.”We knew when we left here (the Caribbean) that all 15 of us could not play at the same time.”The nature of the wickets called for adjustments to be made, and the selectors chose horses for courses,” he added.Taylor, who claimed none for 30 off three overs in the team’s tournament-opening six-wicket win over England, also explained that the decisions taken were supported by team members.”It (to leave him out) was a team decision, as both players, management and everyone, we took unto ourselves to say that if that’s the best case, then go with whatever decisions are made.”The 31-year-old, who said his focus would now turn to the upcoming Caribbean Tri-Nation series, involving Australia and South Africa, as well as the planned Test tour by India, also gave insight as to what the feeling was like in the players’ dressing room in the last over of the final.Needing a challenging 19 runs off the over with the previously unheralded all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite, who made 34 not out off just 10 balls, smashed four sixes off the first four deliveries to seal the win at 161 for six.England had earlier made 155 for nine.”For me, it was never over until the fat lady sings,” Taylor said.”We had some guys, who were feeling down and out by the moment. But we had guys, like myself, who was still pretty optimistic, this knowing the power hitters that we had at the wicket in Carlos Brathwaite and Marlon Samuels, who were set at the time and striking the ball pretty well.”He said he was happy to have played a part in making the Caribbean proud.”The way the guys turned up and put the team and the people of the Caribbean in front was brilliant,” he said.- J.

44 minutes of terror

first_imgLike the many holes still left by the hail of bullets, the spectacular gunbattle transformed the Los Angeles Police Department, boosting its reputation after the Rodney King debacle while greatly improving its armed response. With Los Angeles once considered the bank robbery capital of the world, with up to 900 heists a year, the LAPD implemented tactics after the shootout that cut robberies to fewer than 90 last year. The shootout also left indelible marks on scores of cops and civilians. Many still suffer the depression, the nightmares and the flashbacks of battle-scarred soldiers. And in a case of life imitating Hollywood, which many said mirrored the bank-robbing movie “Heat” of 14 months earlier, the shootout then inspired made-for-TV documentaries and movies. “Our officers faced two savage individuals hellbent on destruction, who had brought with them automatic weapons and had prepared for an unspeakable amount of violence,” said Deputy Chief Michel Moore, commander of the Valley Bureau. “Our officers, though themselves not similarly equipped … rose to the challenge.” City officials will conduct an anniversary ceremony today to honor those who helped stave off the North Hollywood bank bandits. The gunmen in “Heat” had nothing on these guys. Larry Eugene Phillips Jr., 26, was a gruff-looking man with a pencil mustache – a former grifter once arrested for real-estate fraud. He had a wife and two children. Emil Dechebal Matasareanu, 30, was a scraggly haired, 283-pound native of Romania who suffered painful seizures after being struck in the head by a mental patient at his mother’s home-operated day-care center. He had brain surgery months before his death and was estranged from a wife and two kids. A civil-rights lawsuit later filed on behalf of Matasareanu’s two young children alleged he was deliberately allowed to bleed to death. It ended in a deadlocked jury, with the city ultimately agreeing to pay $50,000 in legal fees. The former Altadena residents had once served a brief stint in jail for possessing what Glendale police said was a virtual bank robbery kit. The two were later tied to two San Fernando Valley bank heists netting $1.67 million, as well as an armored truck robbery in which the guard was killed. The cash was never found. Ready for a fight Veteran police Detective Jimmy Grayson, who participated in the exhaustive search for the money from California to Colorado, suspected it was all spent on guns, ammunition and previous medical expenses. “It all makes sense,” he said. “If you had money stashed, why go out and do another robbery? They were living large.” Phillips and Matasareanu triggered the Bank of America alarm at 9:15 a.m. Apparently enraged to find only $304,000 in its coffers, they beat a bank branch officer. Slavic Zlatkin was waiting in a van for his father to make a deposit when the bandits walked out, firing their automatic weapons. “I heard what was like a sledgehammer,” said Zlatkin, now 33, of North Hollywood. “I got out of the van, the (car) window next to me shatters. I said, whoa!” Carlos Lemus, a tire store employee heading to the bank to cash his paycheck, had turned around when he realized he’d forgotten his wallet. “It’s the luckiest thing I ever did,” said Lemus, 48, who still works at the Goodyear shop. Across the region, hundreds of police officers from various departments raced to North Hollywood to help quell the violence, including SWAT members who scrambled from Griffith Park, where they’d been training in running shorts. Military veterans quickly recognized the telltale “blat” of the Russian-designed AK-47 assault rifle. In machine-gun mode The robbers, clad in cut-up Kevlar, emptied 100-round clips from a variety of weapons, sending hot rounds through concrete walls, iron fences, dozens of cars and through the walls of a nearby ice cream parlor and pizza joint. A golden retriever was shot in the nose while on the way to his vet. “Does any unit know how many officers are down?” asked a police radio dispatcher. “More than one, more than one,” responded a frantic officer recorded on audiotape. During the standoff, frustrated police ran into the now-defunct B&B Gun Shop to grab high-powered weapons and ammo. One man in a house behind the bank was so traumatized by the gunfire, according to his family, that he went into a diabetic coma within six months and died. “My husband, who had diabetes, was very sick; he started shaking,” said Yolanda Arreola, 64. “The robbery scared him to death.” Jose Haro had hit the floor in his locksmith shop across the boulevard from the bank when three police officers sought refuge in his kiosk. Haro made his way into a nearby cleaners, where he pulled a woman to safety just as bullets shattered a window. “After everything was over, I saw the bullet holes in my kiosk and my arms started to swell,” said Haro, 73, who received an award from the county. “For eight months, I didn’t sleep during the night.” Lasting impact Dr. Jorge Montes, a dentist, risked his life to treat two wounded officers in his second-story office. For his trouble, he suffered nightmares and a nervous tic in one eye. His father, worried during the ordeal, suffered a heart attack and died later from the anxiety, Montes said. “The sound of bullets was so nerve-racking, it was as if we had no windows here,” said the dentist, who also received an award. During the shootout, most police remained calm, despite ineffective weapons, faulty radios and a command post relocated four times. One seriously wounded officer who later quit the force and became a minister said: “I heard the devil; he told me: `You’re gonna die, you’re gonna die.”‘ It had been 13 years since Officer John Caprarelli had fired his service revolver. During the robbery, he was one of the first cops at the scene. He would fire 26 rounds from his 9 mm Baretta. Before a national TV audience, Caprarelli ran to a street corner to draw fire from Phillips, emptied his gun, then leapfrogged over a fire hydrant for cover. He can still hear the thump-thump of bullets whizzing through walls, or the phtt-phtt sound of rounds in the trees overhead. He was the last man to stare into Phillips’ eyes before the gunman shot himself after his assault rifle jammed. “It was a proud day overall, a proud day for the department,” said Caprarelli, a North Hollywood community-relations officer who received awards for his valor. “Time heals,” he said, crediting God for his recovery. “I knew nothing about post-traumatic stress. I didn’t know I’d have to wake up each night at 1 a.m. in the morning, reliving the shootout. “I can’t watch war movies anymore, like `Wake Island.’ I can’t stand the auto gunfire. I saw `Heat’ before it happened – I bought it – but I can’t watch it now. “It tears me up.” (818) 713-3730 If you go A ceremony to mark the 10th anniversary of the North Hollywood shootout will be held at 4 p.m. today in the plaza across from Bank of America, 6600 Laurel Canyon Blvd.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ten years ago today, two men armed with automatic weapons and clad in body armor did more than rob the Bank of America at 6600 Laurel Canyon Blvd. For 44 thunderous minutes, they marched down the street, spraying stores and homes with 1,100 armor-piercing bullets, and wounding 11 police officers and six bystanders. The more than 300 law enforcement officers fighting for their lives fired back with 750 rounds. And the nation watched the terror unfold as news helicopters broadcast images of what became known as the North Hollywood shootout. When it was over, the two bandits lay dead – one after shooting himself and the other after bleeding to death from 29 gunshot wounds after telling police, “F— you. Shoot me in the head.” NORTH HOLLYWOOD – LAPD Officer Edward Brentlinger remembers crouching behind a wall, popping his pistol as two masked bank robbers fired back with AK-47 machine guns. Wounded bystanders screamed and other officers cried out that they’d been shot. Brentlinger’s 27 shots merely bounced off the heavily armed – and armored – bandits. “I could see the material on their (bulletproof) jackets go `poof,”‘ recalled the award-winning North Hollywood Division community-relations officer. “They were some badass guys. “We didn’t have the firepower to stop them.” last_img

Mourinho’s trophy record v Paisley, Fergie, Wenger and Clough

first_img 6 6 2. Bob Paisley won six major trophies in his first five seasons as Liverpool manager – – to find out which manager has won the most trophies in his five seasons, click the yellow arrow above, right! – When the charismatic, hugely successful Bill Shankly retired in 1974, Bob Paisley seemed to have an impossible job as his successor as Liverpool manager. In his first season at the helm, Liverpool finished potless for the first time in three years. The trophy cabinet wouldn’t be empty for long, though. In his first five seasons as manager, Paisley delivered three league titles, two European Cups and the (then very prestigious) UEFA Cup. Although there is a man who is about to eclipse Paisley’s major trophy haul in his first five seasons as Chelsea boss, no one has delivered as much significant silverware than Paisley, in such a short space of time in their first half a decade with an English football club. 6 5. Arsene Wenger won four major trophies in his first five full seasons as Arsenal manager – – to find out which managers were even more successful in their first five seasons, click the yellow arrow above, right! – In fifth place it’s Arsene Wenger, who joined the Gunners after the 1996/97 season had started, so we’re counting his first five full seasons from 1997/98 to 2001/02. In that period, Wenger won two Premier League and FA Cup doubles, in 1998 and 2002, with the prestige of those achievements putting him ahead of compatriot Houllier. Wenger’s tally also eclipses Bertie Mee’s three trophies (1970 Fairs Cup and 1971 League and Cup double) won after taking the Arsenal job in 1966, and George Graham’s two titles (1989 and 1991) and 1987 League Cup after taking over at Highbury in 1986. The problem Wenger subsequently faced is that, after such a fantastic start to life as Arsenal manager, he’s been judged – and not always lived up to – his own high standards ever since. 6 6 getty center_img 6 1. When Chelsea win the 2015 Premier League, Jose Mourinho will have won seven major trophies in his first five seasons as Chelsea manager – When Chelsea wrap up the 2014/15 Premier League title, Mourinho will join Paisley and Dalglish as the only men to win the title three times in their first five seasons with an English club. The Portuguese has also won three League Cups and the 2007 FA Cup final win over Manchester United completed his domestic clean sweep. Now, it’s time for Mourinho to win the Champions League for Chelsea! As Jose Mourinho sees out his fifth season as Chelsea manager, the Portuguese is on course to claim his third Premier League title for the Blues.But how does his record compare to the most successful managers in English football history, looking at their first five years in charge of a club?ARSENE WENGER V JOSE MOURINHO: ‘SHOW SOME RESPECT’ DEMANDS ARSENAL BOSS All is revealed above, as we count down the six managers with the most silverware over that first five year period.And Sir Alex Ferguson is certainly conspicuous by his absence! 4. Kenny Dalglish won five major trophies in his first five seasons as Liverpool manager – – to find out which managers were even more successful in their first five seasons, click the yellow arrow above, right! – Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is fourth on the list, with an impressive five major trophies claimed for the club after taking over from Joe Fagan in 1985. Dalglish won the double in his first season as Liverpool player/manager, then added another two titles in 1988 and 1990, with the 1989 FA Cup to boot. During this five season spell, he was unable to manage Liverpool in European competition due to the ban on English clubs after the 1985 Heysel disaster, leading to some speculation about how the Reds’ magnificent 1988 champions would have fared in the European Cup against Arrigo Sacchi’s legendary AC Milan team. 6. Gerard Houllier won four major trophies in his first five seasons as Liverpool manager – to find out which managers were even more successful in their first five seasons, click the yellow arrow above, right! – Jose Mourinho is on course to collect his third Premier League title in just five seasons as Chelsea manager (spread across two spells), but how does the Portuguese’s record stack up against the most successful starts to managing a club in English football? The sixth most successful manager of any English club (counting major trophies won in his first five seasons at the helm) is Frenchman Gerard Houllier, who collected four major cups after arriving at Anfield in 1998. Three of those trophies came in the 2000/01 season, when Houllier guided Liverpool to a unique cup treble of UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup, and he added another League Cup in 2003. But Houllier couldn’t end Liverpool’s title drought, with his best league finish being second in 2002. Houllier did win more silverware in his first five seasons with the Reds than Alex Ferguson did in his first five full seasons at Old Trafford, in which the Scotsman picked up three trophies (FA Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and League Cup). 3. Brian Clough won five major trophies in his first five seasons as Nottingham Forest manager – – to find out which managers were even more successful in their first five seasons, click the yellow arrow above, right! – Along with Dalglish at Liverpool, Clough won five major trophies in his first five years as manager of Nottingham Forest, but we’ve put him ahead of the Scot considering the circumstances in which he collected his honours. When Clough took over Forest in 1975, the club was languishing in 13th place in the Second Division, but he took them up via a third place finish in 1977. The feats that followed are unlikely to ever be repeated, as Forest won the top flight title in 1978, then followed it up with back-to-back European Cups. They also beat then league and European champions Liverpool to win the 1978 League Cup, and added another in 1979. Utterly remarkable. last_img read more
