MANCHESTER, England, (Reuters) – Manchester United and Chelsea secured places in the Champions League with wins on the final day of the Premier League season while Watford and Bournemouth were relegated along with bottom club Norwich City. Aston Villa survived the drop thanks to a 1-1 draw at West Ham United which moved them to 35 points, one more than Bournemouth, who go down despite a 3-1 win at Everton, and Watford who lost 3-2 at Arsenal.A penalty from Bruno Fernandes and late goal from Jesse Lingard gave United a 2-0 win at Leicester City, who missed out on the Champions League by finishing fifth and will have to settle for a spot in the Europa League.Chelsea ended fourth after a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers thanks to goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud. Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur, who drew 1-1 at Crystal Palace, are also in the Europa League after finishing sixth.It was a nervous display from United against an injury-ravaged Leicester but they ended the campaign unbeaten in 14 Premier League games and with their mission of regaining a place in the Champions League accomplished.Draws against Southampton and West Ham had left United needing at least a point at the King Power stadium and while they again looked tired in a nervous display, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side got the job done. Fernandes, who was central to United’s rise in the second half of the season, put United ahead in the 71st minute after Anthony Martial was brought down in the box. UNGUARDED GOALThe win was wrapped up when substitute Lingard robbed Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel on the edge of the area and slotted into the unguarded goal.“We looked a bit tired and leggy, I think everyone could see. It wasn’t a classic,” said Solskjaer who will now hope the club back him in the transfer market. “The club know what I feel we need and we are going to try to pursue it and let’s see where we end up,” the Norwegian added.Chelsea also needed just a point at Stamford Bridge to guarantee a place in Europe’s top club competition and a wonderful free kick from Mount and confident finish from Giroud put them two goals up by the break — a lead Wolves never threatened to damage.There was tension at the bottom, though, with Villa taking the lead at West Ham thanks to Jack Grealish in the 84th minute but the hosts hit back quickly through Andriy Yarmolenko, leaving Dean Smith’s side anxiously waiting on Watford’s result. Watford had been 3-0 down at Arsenal but a Troy Deeney penalty and Danny Welbeck goal gave the Hornets hope.It was not to be, however, for the club who sacked manager Nigel Pearson with two games remaining.“This is a reflection of the whole year. Not quite been good enough,” said skipper Deeney.“It is heartbreaking for the people who work behind the scenes and we feel sorry for them. As a club and as a community we will go again. Ultimately we have not been good enough, there is no point dancing around it,” he added. Watford’s demise ensured survival for Villa, who won promotion last term.“I’m pleased, proud and every adjective to go with it. A lot of people had us relegated but we have worked so hard,” said Smith. Bournemouth needed to win and hope other results went their way and their 3-1 win at Goodison Park wasn’t enough to save Eddie Howe’s side from an end to their five-year stay in the top flight.“It’s a sad painful feeling for me in my heart. It’s difficult when you feel like you’ve let people down,” said Howe, who had taken the team from the fourth tier to the top flight. Champions Liverpool rounded off their superb season with a 3-1 win at Newcastle United to finish on 99 points, 18 ahead of second-placed Manchester City who crushed Norwich 5-0.
BILL NEAL:10—Let’s get it poppin’! Ain’t no party like a Pryor party cause a Pryor party don’t stop…Ain’t no party like a Pryor party cause a Pryor party don’t stop!!! And the Pryor party was on, the music and dancing was poppin’, the food was off the hook and “5” count them, five generations of the Pryor family enjoyed a wonderful old school cook-out in the home town and my favorite place on earth Donora, Pa. “The divine Mrs. Pryor” as the center piece still looking just wonderful…Brenda. Holding down at her house (Brenda used to always be in the way when she was a little girl…if you know what I mean), Gena and that always radiant smile, and my childhood brother growing up, Gerome. A great time given by a great family to be sure. While I didn’t have a chance to talk with Terrelle Pryor, I did have the pleasure to talk with his Grandmother for a while and that in and of itself was worth the trip. Our conversation was off the record so I can’t give you details, but I can tell you this…Terrelle Pryor the NFL star is in “Grandma’s hands”…and there’s not a better place to be. Love ya Donora—Always will (Mr. Butler out of Belle Vernon, Pa. from one lineman to another it was a pleasure to go toe to toe with ya. You’re not Penn Hills, but you’ll do!)
Pogha, however, has been seduced by the idea of signing for Barcelona, because the Blagurana have more chances to win titles. However, the fact that Barcelona can’t sign him until January 2016 because of the FIFA sanction is a problem, and Juventus too are unconvinced about keeping him for a year and then selling him. “We have received lots of interest, but still nothing worth ‘marrying'”, said Raiola. “We signed for five years, but if a great offer comes in for Pogba, what will Juventus do?” he said. Upd. at 11:35 Sport EN 20/04/2015 Mino Raiola, representative of Paul Pogba, who Barcelona want to sign, has said that if “the right offer” comes in, the player will leave Juventus. Pogba is one of the footballers with the best potential for the future and there are may clubs who want him. One of those is Barcelona, who have initiated first contact through Ariedo Braida, but Manchester City, Chelsea and PSG, who can offer Pogba huge fees. Raiola, who said that he has received “more than 20 calls a day” was asked about the situation of the French international, and said that despite renewing his contract with Juventus, there would be no problem with Pogba moving elsewhere. Juve only will sit to negotiate for €80m or more, a figure which City and PSG will be more comfortable paying, as well as offering Pogba €12m a year in terms of salary. CEST

Although she was paddling in the junior class, Aoibhín Ní Broin of Galway Canoe Club was the fastest woman home in the elite K1 class at the 60th Liffey Descent canoe marathon on Saturday (September 14). In July, Ní Bhroin competed at the World Junior and U23 Wildwater Canoe Championships in Banja Luka, Bosnia, Herzegovina. She took 2 hours 39 minutes 23 seconds to complete their 32km journey which took in ten weirs, a series of rapids, a portage at Leixlip lake and the treacherous stretch of undergrowth known as “The Jungle”. Also in action was a large group of 18 from Meelick-Eyrecourt Canoe Club (pictured), with ten in the men’s K1 class C alone. The club, founded in 2016 and based on the Galway/Longford border, will hold its own Paddle Fest on October 27th.
