Too Many Man at The ISIS rave

first_imgThe ISIS has revealed that police were called on Wednesday night to help manage queues at their ‘Grime and Punishment’ event at The Cellar, preventing anyone from entering or exiting the club for a period of around 15 minutes. On a night that The ISIS had promised to present “the most punishing beats, the Biggest Bangers and the Best of the underground, from both sides of the pond,” things are reported to have got out of control. Despite the long queues outside and reports of cramped conditions in Frewin Court outside The Cellar, The ISIS reports that the event never reached full capacity. One of the clubbers, a second year historian from University College, described the relative calm inside the club, telling Cherwell, “In my experience, loads of Burning Down the house nights were much more packed. It was by no means full. I had a good time, I think, because I got into the club early on.” Amongst those who did not make it into the club night, there appears to have been considerable frustration with the event’s management. One Facebook user posted on the event’s Facebook page describing how the night was “a waste of a pinger.” Responding to criticism over how the night was conducted, The ISIS posted on the event’s page that, “We are aware of the problems in the queue last night, and we were deeply concerned by the situation in the lane outside Cellar, where conditions for those queueing were unacceptable. We will continue to listen to those coming forward with concerns about the situation on the door.” Looking to the future, The ISIS stressed that, “We are in discussion about several ideas, including advance ticketing, roped access to the alleyway leading to Purple Turtle, and asking Cellar to provide additional security at their future events. “If our concerns and requests for further security in future are not taken into account, we will consider suspending any of our future events from being held at Cellar.” The night was positively received by a number of students. Harry George, a Merton student, for instance, stated that he “bloody loved” the night. And in the words of second year Trinity linguist, Alec Fullerton, “If you pardon the pun, it was a somewhat grime-y evening.”last_img read more

Pulis exit by ‘mutual consent’

first_imgCrystal Palace have described manager Tony Pulis’ departure as being by ‘mutual consent’. Press Association “It’s something you have to nurture and bend at times to make it work and that’s what Steve and I have done.” Former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has been installed as the early favourite to succeed Pulis, with Tim Sherwood, Neil Lennon and David Moyes also considered possibilities. Palace announced in a statement on their website on Friday: “Crystal Palace Football Club can confirm that Tony Pulis has left the club by mutual consent with immediate effect. “Keith Millen will be in temporary charge of the team for our opening Barclays Premier League game against Arsenal this Saturday. “The club would like to thank Tony for his efforts with the club during last season and wish him all the best for the future.” First-team coach Keith Millen will take temporary charge for the Eagles’ opening Barclays Premier League match against Arsenal on Saturday. Pulis was appointed manager in November and led Palace to survival, an achievement that earned him the Premier League manager of the season award just three months ago. The Eagles picked up just seven points from their opening 12 games but Pulis’ arrival instigated a remarkable turnaround as the team finished 11th in the table and 12 points clear of the drop. Pulis’ departure reportedly stems from disagreements with co-chairman Steve Parish over the club’s transfer policy. Palace have so far signed former Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Kettings, Martin Kelly from Liverpool, Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff and Brede Hangeland from Fulham but failed to finalise deals for the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson, who returned to Swansea, and Steven Caulker, who joined QPR. Pulis’ relationship with Parish was strained during the initial period after he took charge, but the former Stoke boss insisted at the end of last season he was not unhappy at the club. “That’s nonsense,’ Pulis said. “In the first couple of weeks Steve and I had our moments but the longer the season has gone on the closer we’ve got. “Our relationship, which I think is the most important at a football club, has got more and more solid. “I had a fantastic relationship with my last chairman at Stoke – the way we thought and worked things out was one of the main reasons why that club was so successful. last_img read more

Face-guarding could affect Syracuse-Northwestern matchup in NCAA quarterfinals

first_imgNorthwestern’s Nell Copeland inched closer and closer to Emily Hawryschuk at the 45-yard line. Within a foot, the Wildcat defender bent down — her grey Under Armor goggles level to the star attack’s chest — and looked up. The ball was on the other side of the field, out of their sight, but Copeland wouldn’t stop bothering Hawryschuk.She stuck her tongue out and tried to make Hawryschuk laugh, but never broke eye contact. The SU junior, in the midst of a hat trick in the first 22 minutes, said she wasn’t fazed. “I didn’t let her get in my head,” Hawryschuk said after Feb. 24’s game. But Hawryschuk couldn’t score for the next 40 minutes. For final two-thirds of their first matchup of the season, Hawryschuk was neutralized until she broke through and scored the game-winning goal. With two of the top attacks in the nation in Hawryschuk and Selena Lasota — both 70-plus goal scorers — facing off on Saturday, No. 5-seed Syracuse (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) and No. 4-seed Northwestern (15-4, 5-1 Big Ten) will look for a personalized defense on the other’s superstar. In most cases, the teams will try to face-guard them: when a player is assigned specifically to an attack to limit their space and opportunities with the ball. Copeland slowed down Hawryschuk earlier this season, and the Orange most recently used the strategy to limit Georgetown’s Taylor Gebhardt to just one shot after a seven goal performance two days prior.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“There’s different strategies. One is to play six-on-six and the other is to try some niche plays to get them out,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “…Sometimes, it works. You take the player out and the rest of team scores, score a lot of goals, and win the game.”TJ Shaw | Staff PhotographerThe Wildcats have found success previously with face-guarding. While Hawryschuk eventually broke away from Copeland to score the winner, Notre Dame attack Maddie Howe struggled to stay efficient when facing the Wildcats. In two matchups against Copeland — including a second round NCAA tournament matchup — Howe scored four goals on 15 shots. In the second game, Notre Dame ran plays for Howe to get open resulting in 11 shots. But she only converted at a 27% clip, her fourth worst of the season.Copeland didn’t have to press Hawryschuk all the way at midfield when they were both far from the play, but she did. Hawryschuk said Copeland was trying to get in her head, but that’s not what affected her.What did affect Hawryschuk was NU’s switch from one-on-one to zone in the second half, which put more pressure on Hawryschuk if she broke away from Copeland. Before, Hawryschuk was able to use picks to get free. In the second half of their first matchup, she could only play off-ball.Unlike Northwestern — who has switched in-between zone and one-on-one — the Orange rely solely on zone, something the Wildcat offense hasn’t seen a lot of this year. What hindered Gebhardt in Sunday’s game was SU’s zone paired with a backer. Georgetown head coach Ricky Fried prepared for either to happen, not both.“In the zone, you get the ball to the player all day long,” Gait said, “but there’s a backer ready to help at all times. It doesn’t help your team to give to the player who’s shut out.”Gebhardt stood away from most offensive players because Fried elected to play six-on-six — eliminating both the attack and defender from the possession. On that particular day, SU’s defensive strategy worked. After SU’s 14-8 win, questions of Georgetown and Syracuse’s strategies kept coming up in the postgame press conference. Fried scratched his head, yet stuck by his decision to have a defender face guard.Gait couldn’t help but smile. As soon as the first question came up, the 11-year head coach pointed to Hawryschuk, who had seven points. “You should talk to Emily,” he said, “she’s been there multiple times this year.”On Saturday, she might be there again.“You got to prepare for it,” Gait said. “If you’re not prepared for it, it’s tough to jump into the game and bring that player back.” Comments Published on May 17, 2019 at 11:20 pm Contact KJ: [email protected] | @KJEdelman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
