From Belvedere to Barcelona, Bulgaria and beyond: the life of a football nomad

Cillian Sheridan’s career has taken him from telling Leo Messi to ‘fuck off’ in Camp Nou to challenging for the Polish league, via Cyprus, Sofia and ScotlandBy Jonathan Drennan for Behind the Lines, part of the Guardian Sport NetworkCillian Sheridan sits in his apartment in the picturesque city of Bialystok in Poland preparing for training with the local top tier football team Jagiellonia Bialystok. Sheridan lives here with his girlfriend, Jodie, and their Irish accents have already marked them out as slight curiosities in a city that adores its high-flying football club. Sheridan has enjoyed some remarkable highs. He has played against Lionel Messi twice – for the Republic of Ireland against Argentina in the first international at the Aviva Stadium in 2010 and for Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League in 2014 – but his career has always been peripatetic. Poland is the latest stop in a professional career that has also taken in Scotland, Cyprus and Bulgaria. Continue reading...

Wasps and Exeter lead way as dizzying season reaches thrilling finale | Robert Kitson

Aviva Premiership campaign, which has seen try-scoring records tumble, reaches play-off stage with Wasps hosting Leicester and Saracens travelling to ExeterA record-breaking 2016-17 Aviva Premiership season is looking set for an equally fast and furious finish as the four title rivals enter the final stretch. Already the two leading sides, Wasps and Exeter, have surged past the longstanding record for team tries scored in a season, previously held by Newcastle in 1997-98, and the play-offs this month are a good bet to produce more high-speed entertainment.Only once before, in 1999-2000 when defences were much less organised, have more tries been scored overall during a 22-match regular season than the tally of 725 this year and more thrills and spills appear certain in the semi-finals on Saturday week. There will be sellout crowds, too: Wasps versus Leicester is increasingly a “must-see” Midlands derby while there will be a stampede in Devon for tickets to watch Exeter against Saracens at Sandy Park.

Will Chudley helps Exeter extend record in hard-fought win at Gloucester

• Gloucester 20-34 Exeter• Will Chudley gives Exeter eighth consecutive bonus point winNo trophies are dished out on the regular season’s final day but Exeter’s hunger for victory remains insatiable. Whether the Chiefs ultimately win the title or not, they will keep on entertaining people right to the end and no team in the country currently has greater statistical momentum. They will now entertain Saracens in a semi-final at Sandy Park chasing a totally different outcome from last year’s Twickenham final.Given Saracens have to squeeze in a European Champions’ Cup final next weekend, it would be wise not to count the Chiefs out prematurely. Rob Baxter’s side have been mastering the champions’ trick of winning when not entirely at their best or depleted by injuries and have not lost to anyone in the league since October.

Channel 5 to show live Premiership matches for first time on terrestrial TV

• Four-year deal agreed for five games to be simulcast alongside BT Sport• ‘It’s all about exposure. Instead of the 100,000s, you’re talking in the millions’It requires only a cursory glance at the Six Nations viewing figures to understand why Premiership Rugby’s deal with Channel 5 to broadcast five matches a season on terrestrial TV makes obvious sense.A combined 11 million tuned in for the two most popular matches on the BBC and ITV and if it is clearly fanciful to suggest similar numbers will do so for club competitions, there is a sizeable potential audience. A certain type of casual rugby fan in need of a little push. Continue reading...

The Criminalization Of Immigrants From Clinton To Trump

Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com As with America’s wars, so with the walling in of America, there’s a distinct history for President Trump to build on when it comes to the criminalization and deportation of large numbers of immigrants ― and, as TomDispatch regular Aviva Chomsky, author of Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal, writes today, it’s a history that is remarkably, dismally bipartisan. In a piece that runs against the grain of the moment but with the grain of history, she suggests that, despite the media panic over Trump’s deportation policies (and threats) as something new and terrifying that we’ve never seen before, the sorry history of recent presidencies ― Bill Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s in particular ― suggests otherwise. In this sharp, thoughtful, and original piece, Chomsky explores just what those two Democratic presidents built, in terms of deportation policies, that will serve Donald Trump well over the next four years. Don’t miss this one! Love, Tom From TomDispatch this morning: What Trump inherited, deportation in context ― Aviva Chomsky, “Making Sense of the Deportation Debate, How Bill Clinton and Barack Obama Laid the Groundwork for Trump’s Immigration Policies”. TomDispatch regular Aviva Chomsky begins her latest piece this way: “Ever since he rode a Trump Tower escalator into the presidential race in June 2015 and swore to build his ‘great wall’ and stop Mexican ‘rapists’ from entering the country, undocumented immigrants have been the focus of Donald Trump’s ire. Now that he’s in the Oval Office, the news has been grim. A drumbeat of frightening headlines and panicked social media posts have highlighted his incendiary language, his plans and executive orders when it comes to immigrants, and the early acts of the Border Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents when it comes to round-ups and deportations. The temperature has soared on the deportation debate, so if you think we’re in a completely unprecedented moment when it comes to immigration and immigrants, you’re in good company. “Trump has repeatedly claimed that immigrants, especially undocumented ones, are flooding the United States, causing crime waves, and depleting social service budgets. Never mind that the number of such immigrants has been in steady decline since 2008, that immigrant crime rates are lower than citizen crime rates, that the undocumented have no access to most social welfare programs, and that crime figures, too, have generally been on the decline in recent years. “The media has played its own role in fanning the flames. Since Donald Trump entered the Oval Office, news reports have proliferated about rising raids, arrests, detentions, and deportations. These suggest that something new, terrifying, and distinctly Trumpian ― something we’ve simply never seen before ― is underway, including mass sweeps to deport individuals who would have been protected under the previous administration.” In the rest of her piece, Chomsky explores out just how two previous Democratic presidents laid the groundwork for Donald Trump’s coming deportation policies. It’s a grim, sad story, but a must-read! -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Lions 2017 squad announcement: Warburton captain, no place for Hartley – live!

No place for Dylan Hartley or Joe Launchbury in Lions squadSam Warburton named as captain for second time Gatland can give Lions nous and substance Email [email protected] | Tweet @bglendenning 3.54pm BST For one last time, here’s who made the cut. Warren Gatland’s selection policy has proved predictably controversial, with many feeling that several in-form Scottish players have been left out in favour of ageing Welshmen who have been picked on reputation rather than Autumn international or Six Nations form. Shades of Clive Woodward in 2005 there, methinks and look at the drubbings that lot took from the All Blacks. No doubt some players will succumb to injury between now and June, so there will be inevitably be new additions to the squad as various unfortunate players are forced to pull out. 3.48pm BST OK, folks - we’re going to wind down this blog now, but please feel free to continues discussing Warren Gatlland’s selections in our comments section. Thanks you all for your contributions and stay tuned for incoming analysis and comment from our rugby writers Rob Kitson, Paul Rees, Gerard Meagher and Andy Bull. Continue reading...

• Saracens wing singled out as main threat in Champions Cup semi-final• Zebo: ‘He is a world-class finisher. Everybody will have to be wary of that’Simon Zebo has warned his Munster side of the threat posed by the Saracens wing Chris Ashton, who will seek to become the highest try-scorer in Europe in the Champions Cup semi-final in Dublin on Saturday.Ashton, who has scored 13 tries in his 12 appearances since returning from suspension in late December, pulled level with Vincent Clerc on 36 European tries with a double against Glasgow in the previous round. He also came off the bench on Sunday to score Saracens’ first try in the victory against Northampton and ensure his side will arrive at the Aviva Stadium after four successive wins since the return of their England contingent.
