Australian Schwarzer, 40, signed his last deal in January 2013 and has not given any firm indications on his future plans. David Stockdale, meanwhile, has impressed during his loan spell at Hull as they press for promotion from the npower Championship. Jol hopes the situation will be resolved one way or another soon. He said: “As you know we made him (Schwarzer) an offer, so that means we would like to keep him.” Asked if he had come back to the club yet, Jol added: “No.” Jol, though, knows Stockdale cannot wait forever to stake his claim for the Fulham number one jersey, the 27-year-old having had loan spells with several different clubs since joining from Darlington in 2008. “The reality is Stockdale wants to be the number one, so I have got a little problem and it is a choice. Do you get him back and make him the number one or do you stick with your keeper?” Jol said. “Schwarzer did ever so well, so it’s about making decisions. If I want another goalkeeper, I won’t take a mug, I would like to take a good goalkeeper, and a good goalkeeper is someone who could be a number one.” Jol added: “I have got a very good one in Neil Etheridge, but he has played two games in his career so for him it would be better to play games at another club and then in two years time he could be number one, because he is a tiger, he is very good talent, but in the meantime we need a very good goalkeeper.” Fulham have several players coming to the end of their current deals, including several on loan, like Cameroon midfielder Eyong Enoh from Ajax. Jol indicated veteran forward Mladen Petric could be among those who move on, adding: “Petric is one who could make his mind up himself because as long as (Dimitar) Berbatov was here, there is not a big role for him to play.” Fulham manager Martin Jol admits he has a “little problem” over his goalkeeper choices for next season – with veteran Mark Schwarzer yet to commit to the offer of a contract extension.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Guerrero said that he’s hit a game-winning grand slam in the ninth inning to win a game in Cuba. This was his first grand slam of any kind in the major leagues. Kenley Jansen survived a one-out double by Carlos Gonzalez to record his fifth save of the season. Josh Ravin (1-0), who struck out the only batter he faced in the eighth inning, was credited with the win. It was the first major league game of Ravin’s career after 209 in the minor leagues dating to 2006. The right-hander from Chatsworth High was added to the 40-man roster after the first game of the doubleheader.The win ensured the Dodgers (31-21) sole possession of first place in the National League West. It also gave the team something to celebrate at a moment it badly needed one.“Guerrero came up big with that home run,” Pederson said. “It was a great team win.”Pederson and Guerrero are both classified as rookies by the league. In that respect their feats will be compared to those of former Dodgers Mike Piazza, Eric Karros and Frank Howard, all Rookies of the Year. Pederson is on pace to hit 50 home runs. That would smash Piazza’s franchise rookie record of 35 and even the all-time rookie record of 49, held by current Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire.Guerrero is on pace to hit 31.But Guerrero is 28 years old and played parts of eight seasons professionally in Cuba before he defected in the summer of 2013. “I’ve played a lot of baseball,” he said. “I’m an older guy.”“Rookie or not,” Pederson said, “he came up huge and helped the team win a ballgame.”That was no small feat after the Rockies tagged Dodgers starter Zack Greinke for a season-high 10 hits and five runs over six innings. With the score 5-5, Colorado added three more runs against relievers Yimi Garcia (2) and Adam Liberatore (1).Betancourt loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning on singles by Alberto Callaspo, Jimmy Rollins and Chris Heisey.In the first game of the doubleheader, the Dodgers made the ultimately dubious choice not to call up a starting pitcher from the minors. Relievers Juan Nicasio and Ian Thomas — fresh up from Triple-A Oklahoma City — were entrusted with the first five innings. Thomas (0-1), who came to the Dodgers last week in the trade that sent Juan Uribe to the Atlanta Braves, allowed four runs in three innings.“Pitching-wise, OK,” Mattingly said. “We just really didn’t do enough (offensively).” The manager mentioned the fifth inning, in which Adrian Gonzalez walked with the bases loaded but Howie Kendrick struck out to end the Dodgers’ best scoring threat.“We had people all over the place,” Mattingly said, “just didn’t do enough to deserve to win.”Pederson appeared to be in a somber mood after the afternoon loss and did not want to address his 15th home run of the season.After the Dodgers won the night game, Pederson appeared more relaxed.“You’re not going to win ‘em all,” he said, “but to lose two in a day would’ve been tough.” “I think our whole team was in shock for a second,” Pederson said.“Just numb at that point,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.Only after Blackmon rose from the warning track without the baseball did the grand slam appear official. The Dodgers’ 8-5 deficit became a 9-8 lead. A disappointing doubleheader sweep became an impossibly hard-earned split.Blackmon told reporters that his glove touched the baseball but was never in the pocket of the glove.“At first I wasn’t sure” if Blackmon caught it, Guerrero said through a translator. “As I kept running, I thought it was out.” DENVER >> Joc Pederson can hit a baseball so far, at such a young age, that the 23-year-old center fielder gives the illusion that he can do everything.Pederson hit two home runs Tuesday, one in each game of a doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies. The first traveled an estimated 477 feet and the second 472, making them two of the longest home runs hit by any player this season.But the Dodgers lost the first game, 6-3, and were one out away from losing the second after Pederson popped out weakly in the top of the ninth inning with the bases loaded. The Dodgers will need more than just Pederson, who has emerged as the favorite for the National League Rookie of the Year award.But the next batter, fellow rookie Alex Guerrero, came through. Guerrero was down to his final strike against Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt when he sent a ball sailing toward dead center field. It hung just high enough to clear the fence and just low enough for center fielder Charlie Blackmon to take a stab at pulling it back.

On the tie between Real Madrid and City: “It will be a great game, very close. The City is not that it has given priority to the Champions and neglected the Premier, it is simply that it is not doing well in England at this time. That choice can be made, but in April, not at Christmas. It is disappointing and the results say so. I didn’t think Klopp could put so much distance between Liverpool and City“. Fabio Capello He was the last to criticize Gareth Bale. The former coach of Real Madrid has given his diagnosis of what happens to the Welsh end this season in conversation with the Daily Mail, in which he also talks about the Champions League qualifier that will measure the white team and Manchester City in the round of 16.“I have the impression that football is not a priority in Bale’s life, I think he is distracted. He is potentially a fantastic player; strong and fast, perfect for the modern football, but if you want to be a champion you must be 100% focused and focused only on your sports life“says the Italian.
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP): Sri Lanka extended their lead over West Indies to 113 on day two of the second Test yesterday, reaching 76 for two at stumps despite losing opener Dimuth Karunaratne to the first ball of the second innings. Opener Kaushal Silva (31) was batting with Dinesh Chandimal on five when bad light stopped play. West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor removed Karunaratne, with the first ball of the innings, when square-leg fielder Devendra Bishoo took an impressive diving catch. Debutant Kusal Mendis and Silva shared 55 runs for the second wicket before Mendis (39) was caught by wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin off left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican. Silva successfully reviewed a leg-before-wicket decision against him when replays showed a delivery from Taylor was missing leg stump. Earlier, Dhammika Prasad took four wickets to help bowl out West Indies for 163 and secure a 37-run first-innings lead. Resuming the day at 17 for one, the tourists lost three more wickets in the morning session, with Prasad causing the biggest damage. Night watchman Devendra Bishoo (13) was caught behind by Kusal Perera off Prasad, and Darren Bravo made two before being bowled by Prasad to leave his team on 37-3. Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews took a catch at slip off part-time spinner Milinda Siriwardana to remove Marlon Samuels (13) just before lunch. West Indies lost their remaining six wickets for 86 runs in the second session. Batting first, Sri Lanka scored 200 in their first innings, helped largely by Siriwardana’s maiden Test fifty, (68 runs) scored off 111 deliveries. remaining wickets
