Man City into first final of Guardiola era

first_imgBut he made light of a tight angle by letting fly with a shot into the top corner from 18 yards out.It would have been easy for Bristol City to be overwhelmed from then on in but, to their credit, it was the southwest side who scored next, in the 64th minute.John Stones made a mess of a clearance and when it came back into the box, Pack guided a well-directed header across Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and into the top corner.Flint turned in a header late on to give Bristol City fans hope of extra time but, pressing for that goal, their side were wide-open to a counter-attack, with Sane cutting the ball back for De Bruyne to fire home.Share on: WhatsApp They kicked off with a narrow advantage at Ashton Gate after a 2-1 first-leg win at the Etihad Stadium.But goals either side of half-time from Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero effectively saw Manchester City to a win on Tuesday and success over over the two legs as they reached their first final under former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola.Bristol City were undaunted, however, with Marlon Pack pulling a goal back in the 64th minute before Aden Flint scored deep into stoppage time.However, there was still time for Kevin De Bruyne to round off the scoring for Manchester City.Guardiola’s men will now face the winners of Wednesday’s Emirates Stadium semi-final between their Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea at Wembley on February 25, with the two London clubs deadlocked at 0-0 after a first-leg stalemate.“We are so happy to be there, to reach this final,” Guardiola, whose debut season as City boss last term saw him end a campaign without a trophy for the first time in his managerial career, told Sky Sports.“We played an amazing game until 2-0 and then we lost control, these type of games never end until the end.“This is a lesson for next weekend in Cardiff in the FA Cup and especially for the Champions League,” the Spaniard warned.– ‘Judged on trophies’ –“At 2-0 we knew it would be easier because they needed three or four goals but with one minute left it was 2-2 and anything could happen.”Guardiola played down the personal importance of reaching a Wembley final, saying: “It’s not for me, it’s for Manchester City, a club who are trying to reach another level. “I know that we will be judged by trophies we win but we are so happy,” he insisted. “Nobody can take away what we have done, but Chelsea or Arsenal are strong teams.”Meanwhile Pack summed up the mood of the home side by saying: I’m proud of the boys and proud to be part of this team. Hopefully we can take this into the league now and keep it going.”It looked as if Bristol City would deny Manchester City a goal in the first half of Tuesday’s match.But three minutes before the break, Hordur Magnusson made the mistake of trying to shepherd the ball out of play rather than clearing and was dispossessed near the byline by Bernardo Silva.His cross was fired in by Sane and left Bristol City, chasing promotion to the lucrative Premier League, with a mountain to climb.Four minutes after the re-start Aguero, Manchester City’s all-time leading goalscorer, seemed to put the result of the tie beyond doubt.The Argentina striker, fresh from a hat-trick in a 3-1 league win over Newcastle United last weekend, still had plenty to do following De Bruyne’s cross-field ball.center_img Bristol, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola saw his Manchester City side pushed hard before defeating second-tier Bristol City in an entertaining League Cup semi-final on Tuesday to leave him one game away from winning his first major trophy in English football.Guardiola’s runaway Premier League leaders, eyeing an unprecedented season quadruple given they also remain involved in both the FA Cup and Champions League, won 3-2 on the night for a 5-3 aggregate win over the Championship side.last_img read more

Informal Group Looks to Preserve Rumson Estate

first_imgBy John BurtonThe Rohallion Estate in Rumson is for sale and neighbors fear the property could be bought and subdivided for development.RUMSON — A group of area residents are hoping they can muster enough support to preserve a borough property that they believe has historical significance.The group, who met for the first time on Thursday, July 26, has begun hashing out ideas to save the Rohallion Estate, 45 Bellevue Ave., a sprawling 5-acre property with numerous large specimen trees and an expansive multistory home nestled in the center.The 10 members of the group walked through the palatial home and grounds. “Rumson starts losing its estates, it starts losing its validity,” fears Bob Baxter, a North Rohallion Drive resident and a member of the group.“I grew up here,” around the estate, said Nick McCabe, another area resident. “And I can’t tell you how beautiful it was.”McCabe’s parents bought their property, about 3 acres on North Rohallion, in the 1950s from the then-owners of estate.The fear for some is that the 5-acre tract will eventually be purchased and subdivided for development, possibly putting at risk the home, designed by the iconic late 19th and early 20th century architect Stanford White, who was responsible for the original Madison Square Garden.“We’re looking at a little piece of our heritage disappearing,” Baxter said.The Rohallion Estate on Bellevue Avenue in Rumson.The group is only in its infancy, but participants are discussing the possibility of raising the money needed to purchase the property, or if the property can be purchased by local or Monmouth County government to use for something appropriate. “You could do so much that wouldn’t be invasive,” McCabe said.“You could look at it as a park,” Baxter suggested.Another possibility would be to find a private buyer to consider using the location for a business that would work in the existing residential neighborhood, such as a bed-and-breakfast or even a catering facility.Edward Dean Adams commissioned White to design a country home in 1887, with the architect using a Normandy chateaux as his model, according to a history written by Derrill W. Hart.Khaled Mostafa is the current owner, according to borough tax rolls. It has been on the market for the last couple of years, said Pauline Poyner, with Coldwell Banker real estate agency.Borough tax records indicate it is assessed for $3,250,000, and the real estate listing puts the selling price at about $4.5 million, down from the original price of just under $5 million.Mayor John Ekdahl said borough officials “actually gave some thought to (purchasing) it before we built the new municipal building,” on East River Road a few years ago.The estate sits on a sprawling 5-acre property with numerous large specimen trees.However, when officials looked at the building, they found it would have been difficult – if not outright impossible – to reconfigure it for the borough’s uses and meet current requirements. “The layout just wasn’t appropriate to an office setting,” said Ekdahl.“At the end of the day I would love to see some public elegant use,” McCabe said.But the trick, observed, Jamie Wark, a Linden Lane resident who is part of the group, is “to figure out ways to make it financially feasible.”Group members said their next task will be to put together a plan to present to interested parties to begin the conversation about saving the location.Baxter was not deterred by the challenge.“We’re going to save it,” he said. “And, more than save it, we’re going to reinvent it into something that we all can be proud of.”The location, which is zoned for residential use that needs a minimum 1.5 acres for development, is adjacent to Rumson Country Day School, a private school.Any future subdivision of the property could prove problematic, Ekdahl speculated, given the location’s wealth of “some magnificent trees,” and the borough’s tree protection ordinance.The mayor shared group members’ appreciation of the site. “It was probably the most magnificent property in Rumson for years, or decades,” he said.last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SUNDAY MARCH 19, 2017

first_imgSANTA ANITA STATISTICS Jerry Hollendorfer12326192221%54%$1,701,389 BALTAS HAS NEAR-PERFECT ENTRY RECORDA day without Baltas at Santa Anita is like a day without sunshine, and while there has been more than enough erratic weather during the 12-week old Winter Meet, trainer Richard Baltas has been a constant, a racing secretary’s dream with 125 starters, second only to three-time Santa Anita training king Doug O’Neill’s 150.Baltas couldn’t recall the number of days he did not have a starter from his barn of 83 head based at Santa Anita and San Luis Rey Downs, but added with a laugh, “There haven’t been many, maybe a couple. That’s what I’m here for, and it’s hard to win at 18 percent when you run 125 horses.“Yesterday I thought we’d win two but we only won one, and we had one second and one third, so all three horses hit the board.”The fact is, Baltas has missed only one of 45 racing days without entering a horse this meet, that being Feb. 11.Baltas, who turns 56 on May 30, could add to that ever-expanding number with at least two more starters next weekend, Inordinate in Saturday’s San Luis Rey Stakes for older horses at a mile and a half on turf and Kiss At Midnight in Sunday’s $100,000 Dream of Summer Stakes, part of the Golden State Series for California-bred or sired horses, this for older fillies and mares at a mile on dirt.Inordinate, a five-year-old full horse by Harlan’s Holiday, ran second in an overnight race at a mile and a quarter on turf Feb. 25 in his only start for Baltas, who obtained the Kentucky-bred bay out of the November Fasig-Tipton Sale. Bred by Juddmonte Farms and previously owned by the internationally acclaimed Thoroughbred operation, Inordinate had been trained by 2016 Eclipse Award winner Chad Brown.“He ran well for us first time out and I believe he probably needed the race (his first since last Aug. 27),” Baltas said. “He’s come back to train well. He worked (six furlongs) in 1:12 and two on March 14. It looks like he might have a chance in the race. We’ll see.”Inordinate will be ridden by resurgent Corey Nakatani, who has enjoyed noticeable success with Baltas, winning nine times in 26 tries for the trainer.Kiss At Midnight was claimed for $25,000 in April of 2015 and has been second in four Cal-bred stakes, including last year’s Dream of Summer. The five-year-old Decarchy mare has earned $357,793, most of that under the direction of Baltas.Baltas, a native of Gary, Indiana, hometown of Tony Zale, the great middleweight champion of the 1950s, has had great success with claims. He posted his first stakes win with $32,000 claim Freedom Crest in the Grade II San Pasqual Handicap in 2001 and also the Grade II, $488,000 Goodwood Breeders’ Cup Handicap in which Freedom Crest defeated 2000 Horse of the Year Tiznow. On the bargain list as well is Big Macher, who was taken for $20,000 in 2013 and gave Baltas his first Grade I win, in the Bing Crosby Stakes in 2014. Big Macher was on the work tab Sunday morning, going three furlongs in 36.80.Baltas, who now resides in Los Alamitos with his wife, Debby, moved to Huntington Beach when he was nine, graduated from Marina High School in 1979, attended the races with his late father, Gus and fell in love with the sport.“I started going to the races when I was 13 with my father,” Baltas said. “My mother was at the races the other day. She’s 88. My Dad died when he was 74.”At 21 and wanting to break into the game, in 1983 Baltas moved to the heart of the Blue Grass country in Lexington, Kentucky, attended the Kentucky Equine Institute and began working at Spendthrift Farm where resided Triple Crown winners Seattle Slew and Affirmed.He rubbed yearlings and worked as a groom, learning the business “from the ground up,” through trainers such as Tom Skiffington, Eric Guillot, Barry Abrams, Craig Dollase and Richard Mandella.Baltas took out his trainer’s license in 1991 and won his first race at Hollywood Park with Latchburn.His wife, Debby, the “Julia Child of Racing Repast,” calls the shots at the track kitchen on Santa Anita’s backstretch. Her family ran the track kitchen at Hollywood Park until the track closed in December of 2013.Debby’s Mom, Norma, serves hungry patrons at the Fresh Gourmet, “a great stop for lunch or dinner” on 2004 Huntington Drive in San Marino, a few furlongs from Santa Anita.The San Luis Rey is expected to draw a full field.
