Kane scored twice in Spurs’ victory over Norwich on Saturday to take his personal tally to 11 Barclays Premier League goals this season and 27 in 2015, which broke Teddy Sheringham’s club record for a calendar year. The 22-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from big-spenders Manchester United in the past, but Pochettino is adamant Kane will not be leaving White Hart Lane regardless of the bid. Mauricio Pochettino insists no money in the world can take Harry Kane away from Tottenham. Press Association “You can’t take any game for granted, like ‘this is a game we’re going to win’. “Everyone is beating everyone and teams who you thought were going to be down the bottom are up near the top. We have to be focused like we were on Saturday against Norwich.” Spurs are in good form, having registered back-to-back wins since their shock defeat at home to Newcastle two weeks ago. That loss took their number of points lost from winning positions to 11 this season and Pochettino was noticeably animated when his side led Norwich 2-0, geeing up the crowd and hounding his players to go for a third goal. “Sometimes I think it is good when you feel from the touchline the energy is a little bit down, always I can help the players, the people, and you know in the Premier League the game is not finished until the referee blows the final whistle,” Pochettino said. “We needed to kill the game and always you need your supporters to support you. There was a moment after 50 minutes in the second half we play brilliant but did not kill the game. “There was a moment when we missed a pass and only you hear the silence and I start to shout and try to help the team to give them more energy to kill the game.” Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is struggling to be fit for the match at Vicarage Road after picking up an ankle knock against the Canaries. “There is no price. No-one can buy him,” Pochettino said. “He is not for sale. There is not a value because it is impossible to put a price.” Kane’s remarkable 12 months has included two hat-tricks, six doubles and 32 goals in all for club and country, including one 79 seconds into his senior England debut. The striker went eight games without a goal for Tottenham at the start of the season but any ‘one-season wonder’ jibes have since been quashed, with Pochettino’s men now sitting fourth ahead of Monday’s visit to in-form Watford. Kane may feel added motivation, having been invited for trials with the Hornets as a youngster before Spurs stepped in and made the definitive offer. “I was there for a four to six-week trial and then before it went up I went to Spurs,” Kane said. “I was very young at that stage. I’ve played there on loan for a couple of clubs. “They’ve been doing well. They got another good result at Chelsea (2-2 draw) on Saturday so they’re going to be full of confidence as well.
On a national level, the stories to come out of this game will be about the shakeup at the top of the Associated Press Poll. It’ll be about the questions surrounding Clemson’s ability to make the College Football Playoff, let alone repeat as national champions.But on Friday night, Swinney himself made sure to shift that narrative toward, who he felt, was more deserving.“There’s a lot of pain in our locker room, but this is a story about Syracuse,” Swinney said. “… The story of the night is that Syracuse outplayed us.”Zaire Franklin said he saw Swinney addressing some SU players on the field after the game. Then, when he came into the locker room, he addressed Steve Ishmael directly and even took a picture with a few players, Franklin said.“He was just humble,” Franklin said. “I don’t even know how to describe it. That was pretty cool. That was pretty awesome.” Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth teams met at midfield after Friday night’s contest to shake hands and kickoff the Atlantic Coast Conference’s “Fall Sportsmanship Week.” But the feelings the staged events were supposed to encourage proved to be genuine postgame for Swinney, who stopped inside Syracuse’s (4-3, 2-1 ACC) locker room after the upset victory over No. 2 Clemson (6-1, 4-1) and addressed the team.“Utmost respect to Coach Swinney,” quarterback Eric Dungey said. “He came up to us after the game. Class-act program.”Both Babers and Dungey had very little to say when asked about last year’s 54-0 blowout loss to the Tigers. Still, they had nothing but praise for Clemson in the week leading up to the game. And after, that feeling remained.“Coach Dabo,” Babers said in the press conference leading up to the game, “one of the premier programs and the way he does it is absolutely the right way.” Published on October 14, 2017 at 2:10 am Contact Tomer: email@example.com | @tomer_langer Syracuse head coach Dino Babers and Clemson head man Dabo Swinney embraced on the block “S” in the Carrier Dome. The Orange had just beaten the Tigers, ending the longest active winning streak in the FBS and putting a dent into Clemson’s postseason resume.As the two met, ESPN cameras zoomed in on them.

Related Articles StumbleUpon Share UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 Submit David CliftonIn my recent SBC News article “Be mindful of protecting children”, I commented on the Sunday Times article entitled “Cartoons lure kids to online gambling”, published on 8 October.I had no knowledge that at the same time I was writing that, the Gambling Commission had joined forces with the Committee of Advertising Practice, the Advertising Standards Authority and the Remote Gambling Association to collectively write a letter on the same subject to online gambling operators. Their letter was sent out on Friday last week. In it, they “advise” gambling operators that they “must” immediately amend or remove any ads on their website or in third-party media space that are likely to appeal particularly under 18s.The Sunday Times was quick to claim this action as a victory for its journalism adding that. without its investigation into the gambling industry’s use of child-friendly images, “the appropriate authorities would not have taken these steps”.Whether it is justified in claiming such a victory is questionable. What it certainly has done is open up for debate the question whether those authorities should have done more to tackle this issue earlier.One of the three licensing objectives under the Gambling Act 2005 is “protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling”. That same Act describes promotion of the licensing objectives as the principal function of the Gambling Commission.The need to prevent under-age gambling is underlined in the Commission’s Statement of Principles for Licensing and Regulation and is further emphasised by social responsibility code provisions 3.1.1 and 3.2.11 within its LCCP.In addition, ordinary code provision 5.1.6 specifically states that “licensees should comply with the advertising codes of practice”, namely the CAP and BCAP codes and the Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising. The rules are therefore already there. The letter received by operators on Friday does not really say anything new. Page 6 of the CAP’s Guidance to the CAP and BCAP Codes has for some considerable time warned that “an advertisement featuring a character that particularly appeals to children is likely to fall foul of the rules. Marketers should be mindful that the use of cartoons or licensed characters, such as superheroes and celebrities popular with children, must be used with a due sense of responsibility. In other words, advertisers should take care when using cartoon-like images; they might be acceptable if they are adult in nature but marketers run the risk of appealing to under-18s if cartoon images are too childish in their execution, and that might be a problem when advertising gambling products. However, the ASA will consider whether advertisers have taken reasonable steps to prevent under-18s from viewing ads (for example age-gating of online ads) and the likely age of the audience viewing the ad”.Perhaps what the letter does underline is that the ASA and the CAP Compliance team will start to use the sanctions available to them, including referring licence holders to the Gambling Commission (or Ofcom) as they have committed to doing “should there be serious or repeated breaches of the Ad Codes”. The recent £7.8 million penalty imposed by the Commission on 888 for significant flaws in its social responsibility processes should itself serve to spur operators’ compliance teams into action.So what should recipients of Friday’s letter be doing?They should read it very carefully and follow all of the hyperlinks and read what is said there.They should read and make sure they understand the ASA rulings accessible via the links on the penultimate page of the letter.They should absorb all that is said in the ASA’s updated online advice note entitled “Betting & Gaming: Appeal to Children” to which I referred in my recent article.They should be establishing which of their advertisements are generally available to anyone to view (which is what is meant by the phrase “freely accessible” in Friday’s letter), whether the ads are referring to a play-for-money or a play-for-free game and whether on their own website or in third party media.Bearing in mind all that is said in the advertising codes, they should be assessing whether any particular ad has “particular appeal” to children, which according to a December 2015 ASA ruling, depends on the test of whether its content appeals more strongly to under-18s than to over-18s. although that may be putting it too simplistically.If an ad does feature content that has a particular appeal to children, they should consider whether it appears in a context that effectively excludes children from seeing it and, if it doesn’t, they should be removing it and then considering whether they can bring it within the limited exception referred to in a May 2017 ASA ruling but they should bear in mind that the ASA subsequently said: “This exception to the rule that gambling ads must not include content that is of particular appeal to under 18s, is unlikely to apply to media where the targeting information depends on unverified audience self-reporting, or where a sufficiently robust prohibition of under-18s is not in place. In such circumstance, the content appealing in particular to under-18s is still likely to breach the Code”.If they are in any doubt at all, they should be amending or removing the ad and considering what can be done to bring it within the rules. As Friday’s letter says, it is open to them to have a discussion with the CAP Copy Advice team. However, if doubt persists, they should also contemplate taking appropriate specialist legal advice________________David Clifton – firstname.lastname@example.org UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020
