ampton - 3pm, Saturday Can Southampton ke Antworten

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The World Rowing Federation (FISA) is adamant every race will take place in the Olympic regatta at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas despite Sundays programme being postponed due to windy conditions and a fault with the buoy system.Sir Steve Redgrave, Britains most decorated rower, backed the decision to postpone Sundays rowing but warned of a doomsday outcome where, if this wind continues and scheduling chaos ensues, then for the first time since the inaugural modern Olympics medals may not be awarded.The weather caused havoc on Saturday. After Serbias mens pair capsized in conditions Katherine Grainger called the worst shes ever rowed in, Sunday mornings training sessions saw two further boats flip.With gusts blowing down from the hills, the original 8.30 a.m. start time for Sundays rowing was firstly delayed by two hours but then came confirmation at 10.15 a.m. of postponement after the wind direction shifted, seeing 50 metres/second gusts causing boats unable to hold their direction and buoys shifted out of position in the lanes.It was a technical instillation issue causing the delays, FISA executive director Matt Smith said. The expected winds were above anything we expected for the cables of our buoy systems. We had cables lying in lanes. FISA say this problem is now solved.Having lost a day to the elements, Smith said the plan is to schedule the W8+ and M8+ races and M4x and W4x repechages on Monday morning from 8.30 a.m. and then slot in as many of Sundays postponed races from 9.30 a.m. until 1.30 p.m. FISA say the programme will have caught up by Wednesday but if the weather causes further delays then there is a contingency plan of extending the regatta to Sunday, Aug. 14.We are old and experienced in staging regatta, Smith added. We have a lot of tricks up our sleeve, a lot of contingency plans. We could even have two rounds on the same day, we have done that in the past. We have advanced racing in the past. With nine days, including Sunday morning, we are confident we are ready for nearly anything they can throw at us.For Redgrave, he said the rowers safety was paramount but added if these windy conditions continue, then the organisers will face a logistical nightmare to fit in every race.None of the rowers wouldve liked to have run out in that, especially the ones who have the repechages which determine whether they stay in the Olympic regatta or not, Redgrave said as a plastic chair flew off behind him. We are an outdoor sport and in outdoor sports you are open to the elements and you have to deal with that. Weve raced in conditions similar to this and there is a point you have to call it and I guarantee you that 99 percent of the athletes will be pleased.He added: The tough bit is that if this weather continues. But what were hearing is that if the programme gets delayed and delayed then the boats going through repechages may not get the chance to race in them.That is eight out of 14 categories -- so the [Team GB] womens pair and mens four wont race today and if they dont get to race until Saturday when there are perfect conditions on Saturday morning, what do you do then? Do you have the heats, the repechage, the semifinal and final in one day?Youd have 14 events. Its not going to happen, it would be cancelled. The worst case scenario is that there will not be any Olympic medals given out at this Games. So if you start that at the doom and gloom then anything better than that will be good.Team GB team leader Sir David Tanner said he was absolutely supportive of the decision to postpone Sundays racing and FISA had made completely the right call.If we look at the programme to be frank it is possible for it to be completed in fewer days than eight, Tanner said. Youve seen the sessions are relatively short and from my point of view, and our rowers would say the same, if we get a window and can get on with it, they wont argue with racing in the morning or afternoon, we could do it.

JOHNS, N.The Premier League title race approaches a potentially defining weekend, and Sky Sports Paul Merson looks ahead to the mouth-watering round of fixtures which sees the current top four face off on Super Sunday. Up first, leaders Leicester travel to the Emirates Stadium looking to continue their remarkable rise against an Arsenal side hoping to keep their hopes of a first title in 12 years alive.Aston Villa then look to boost their unlikely bid for survival against Liverpool before the title race takes centre stage once again as second-placed Spurs travel to Manchester City. Last weeks predictions Result Merses prediction Man City 1-3 Leicester 3-1 Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich 1-1 Liverpool 2-2 Sunderland 2-1 Newcastle 1-0 West Brom 2-1 Stoke 0-3 Everton 2-2 Swansea 1-1 Crystal Palace 1-1 Tottenham 1-0 Watford 3-1 Soton 1-0 West Ham 2-2 Bmouth 0-2 Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea 1-1 Man Utd 3-2 It proved to be another tough round of predictions last time out with the Magic Man managing just one correct score and two correct results. Scroll on to see how who Merson is tipping this week…Arsenal v Leicester - 12pm, Super Sunday Can Leicester slaughter Arsenal as they did Man City last weekend? Arsenal have to win this game for me but they are set up perfectly for Leicester, exactly the same as Man City were last week. Arsenal will have loads of the ball and then bang, Leicester will hit them on the counter. Leicester absolutely slaughtered City so Arsenal have got to be careful. They are nowhere near as good a team as Arsenal but they play a certain way which can majorly hurt them. This game will come down to how the first 25 minutes pans out. If Arsenal score early I fancy them to run away with it but if they dont I fancy Leicester. Arsenal will continue to bomb forward for a goal and that plays right into the hands of the leagues best counter attacking side. However, having said that, Arsenals class should prevail, but it wouldnt shock me one iota if Leicester won.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 7/1)Man City v Tottenham - 4.15pm, Super Sunday The Magic Man tips Harry Kane to open to scoring at the Etihad Stadium If Im being honest, I dont see Spurs winning this game. They havent got pace on the counter like Leicester have so Im unsure how theyll hurt Man City. I dont see them losing the game though, theyll get a draw which is still a great result ahead of a favourable home game against Palace next week. Spurs have conceded 10 goals in their last two trips to the Etihad but this Tottenham team is a completely different animal under Mauricio Pochettino, this is one of the best sides theyve had in years. Man City will no doubt cause Spurs problems too but I dont see either side running away with a game which is relatively well matched.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 11/2)Aston Villa v Liverpool - 2.05pm, Super Sunday Villa backed to catch Liverpool off guard on Super Sunday This game is all about timing and this is perfect time for Aston Villa to be facing Liverpool. Jurgen Klopps team have just been beaten over 120 minutes in the FA Cup and theyve got the Europa League coming up on Thursday - for me their only chance of qualifying for the Champions League. Liverpool have to put all their eggs into one basket with the Europa League so I see Villa winning on Sunday. If Villa can win this game, and reduce the gap to five or six points, then suddenly theyre back in with a slim chance of staying up. Liverpool have been poor when defending set plays and that is where Villa look a threat, I fancy Joleon Lescott to bag the winner.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds 9/1)Chelsea v Newcastle - 5.30pm, Saturday Night Football Chelsea tipped to continue their revival under Hiddink against Newcastle Newcastle played really last week agaiinst West Brom and could have won by four or five.dddddddddddd But, in the end, it was only 1-0 and West Brom had a chance to equalise late on, so its worrying they didnt put the game to bed. Chelsea are a different side now the players want to have a go, they have really picked up under Guus Hiddink. Ive got to take Newcastles dismal showing at Everton last week into consideration though, so Im backing Chelsea here. Newcastles away form has a greater influence than their impressive home performances.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds 9/1)Sunderland v Man Utd - 12.45pm, Saturday Merson tips Wayne Rooney to fire United to victory at the Stadium of Light Manchester United have turned the corner, Ive been impressed. They looked really good at Chelsea and thoroughly deserved a draw at least. Sunderland, meanwhile, will have felt they did well against Man City, despite losing, and then they got a lucky draw at Liverpool if Im being honest. We will have to see whether the speculation surrounding Louis van Gaals future affects United but they seem to have turned the corner and I expect them to win at the Stadium of Light.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Bournemouth v Stoke - 3pm, Saturday Bournemouth will be hoping to convert their impressive displays into victory when Stoke visit the Vitality Ive watched Stoke a couple of times recently and theyve gone! Theyve lost their last two games 3-0, teams at the bottom of League Two dont even do that - that is some going. I thought Bournemouth showed Arsenal too much respect in the first half on Sunday but they did improve after the break. I fancy them to win here as long as they put in a similar display as they did against the Gunners.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 2-1) Play Super 6! Think you can do better than Merse? Take him on at Super 6 for free here. Crystal Palace v Watford - 3pm, Saturday Can Palace end an eight-game wait for a Premier League victory? Im covering this game for Soccer Saturday and I fancy there to be goals. Despite drawing at Swansea last time out, Palace have got to start winning games to stop the rot. Neither side are in particularly good form if Im being honest and theyre both probably cup teams now, being a win or two away from all-but securing their Premier League status for next season. Watfords front two will be exciting as always and Palace always have a go wherever they play so I predict a Desmond.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-1)Everton v West Brom - 3pm, Saturday Outstanding Everton will have too much for a West Brom side looking over their shoulders This is one of my bankers of the weekend. West Brom played 120 minutes at Peterborough where they struggled in fairness. Tony Pulis has got to decide whether to play Saido Berahino or not, they need to start scoring goals and he is their only viable option. Albion need results fast to avoid being further sucked into a fight for survival. Take on Merse Think you know better than Merse? Take him on at Super 6 for the chance to win £250,000 here. Everton, meanwhile, have won their last three games 3-0, theyve tightened things up at the back and going forward they are very, very good. Stoke havent received a hiding at home like the one Everton dished out in many a day, they were unbelievable and it would have been six or seven had it not been for Jack Butland. I fancy Everton to make it four 3-0 wins on the spinPAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 2-0)Norwich v West Ham - 3pm, Saturday Will other competitions hinder West Hams chances at Norwich? This game is another prime example of how the timing of football matches can affect the outcome. Norwich will have looked at the fixtures and probably wouldnt have fancied themselves against a West Ham side that has been flying this season.However, when you consider the Hammers played 120 minutes in midweek, have an eye on the next round of the cup and probably cant qualify for the top four, then this the best time ever to play them. West Ham have got a great chance to win the FA Cup and have bigger fish to fry so I fancy Norwich to nick a vital win.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-2)Swansea v Southampton - 3pm, Saturday Can Southampton keep a fifth consecutive clean sheet? Southampton have really turned the corner. For Fraser Forster to do what hes done and keep five clean sheets is some going in a league where so many chances are created. You have to ride your luck to keep clean sheets in this league but take nothing away from Southampton - their dogged display against West Ham with 10 men was brilliant. I dont see Swansea scoring if Im being honest, theyve been so uncertain at the back I just see Saints winning.PAUL PREDICTS: 0-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-2)Think you know better than Merse? Take him on at Super 6 for the chance to win £250,000! Also See: Premier League build-up LIVE!
