Spurs move for Pochettino

first_img The former Argentina international’s stock has risen markedly since his controversial appointment at St Mary’s in January 2013. Having arrived in English football a relative unknown, former Espanyol boss Pochettino’s possession-based, attacking game and focus on home-grown talent has impressed, as have his on-field results. “In Mauricio I believe we have a head coach who, with his high energy, attacking football, will embrace the style of play we associate with our club,” Levy said. “He has a proven ability to develop each player as an individual, whilst building great team spirit and a winning mentality. “We have a talented squad that Mauricio is excited to be coaching next season.” Pochettino’s Southampton future has been in doubt since the January departure of divisive executive chairman Nicola Cortese, having last summer claimed he would follow the Italian out of the club should he leave. The former defender did stay on at Saints after Cortese exited but only for a matter of months, with the club concluding negotiations with Spurs on Tuesday after accepting his resignation. Malky Mackay, Steve McClaren, Murat Yakin and Michael Laudrup are amongst the early frontrunners to replace Pochettino, while the departure will see speculation intensify over the future of Southampton’s players. Highly-rated teenager Luke Shaw and playmaker Adam Lallana have attracted interest from Manchester United and Liverpool respectively, while Dejan Lovren, Calum Chambers and Jay Rodriguez have also been linked with a move away. Last month executive director Les Reed said the club’s intention was to keep their star players but Pochettino’s exit will make that harder, while also heaping the pressure on the recently-formed board, headed by chairman Ralph Krueger, to make a statement. “The club has been on a constant path of growth since the arrival of Markus Liebherr in 2009,” Kruger said in a statement on www.saintsfc.co.uk. “This growth took place before Mauricio came, it continued strongly under his leadership, and it will continue into the next season. “The board’s job is to find opportunity in this challenge and to continue to move the club forward. “We have begun the search for a new high-calibre manager. We will be looking for a manager that shares our values, our principles and our philosophy. “A manager who can continue to grow the first-team and build on our strong foundation – a foundation led by an ambitious vision and plan that continues to build on our world-class academy, our amazing 129-year heritage and our excellent staff, and rewards our loyal and passionate fan base.” Mauricio Pochettino has been appointed Tottenham head coach, leaving Southampton to pen a five-year deal at White Hart Lane. Press Association Saints managed their best-ever Barclays Premier League finish last season but, after months of speculation, will be now looking for a new manager after Pochettino signed a deal until 2019 to succeed Tim Sherwood in north London. “This is a club with tremendous history and prestige and I am honoured to have been given this opportunity to be its head coach,” Pochettino told Tottenham’s official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com. “There is an abundance of top-class talent at the club and I am looking forward to starting work with the squad. “Tottenham Hotspur has a huge following across the world and I have great admiration for the passion the fans show for this team. “We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve.” Pochettino had a year remaining on his deal at St Mary’s and has taken with him assistant manager Jesus Perez, first-team coach Miguel D’Agostino and goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez. It is unclear what those appointments mean for Spurs’ existing backroom team, while there have been reports questioning the future of technical director Franco Baldini. What is certain, though, is that Pochettino will be charged with securing Spurs a top-four finish by ambitious chairman Daniel Levy after a disappointing campaign, in which a flurry of summer signings failed to gel. last_img read more

WDFW Tentatively Plans 24 Days of Razor Clam Digging in April…

first_imgFacebook11Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Washington Department of Fish and WildlifeThe Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has proposed a series of razor clam digs in April and May to cap a season packed with more “beach days” than any time in the past 25 years.After a nine-day opening that runs through March 24, state shellfish managers plan to end the season with another 24 days of digging on morning low tides at various beaches from April 4 through May 17.Final approval of those digs depends on the results of marine toxin tests, which have consistently shown this season that the clams are safe to eat.“We’ve had a great season so far and we expect it to continue that way in the months ahead,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “We have an abundance of clams on most beaches, which makes for some terrific digging opportunities.”Proposed digging days in April and May, along with the remaining digs in March, are posted on WDFW’s website.Under state law, diggers are required to keep the first 15 clams they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. No digging is allowed on any beach after noon.Counting the new dates in April and May, Ayres said WDFW plans to provide a total of 286 “beach days” of digging on Washington beaches this season – the highest number since 1989. He defined a “beach day” as one beach open for a single day, so four beaches open for one day counts as four beach days.Annual razor clam seasons typically end in mid-to-late May, when the clams begin to spawn and are less desirable for eating, Ayres said.He reminds diggers they will need a valid 2015-16 fishing license to participate in razor clam digs effective April 1, the beginning of the new license year. Various types of fishing licenses are available online, by phone (866-246-9453), and from authorized license dealers throughout the state.Meanwhile, state wildlife managers are urging clam diggers to avoid disturbing snowy plovers and streaked horned larks. Both species nest in the soft, dry sand at Leadbetter Point on the Long Beach Peninsula and on a section of Twin Harbors beach.The snowy plover is a small bird with gray wings and a white breast. The lark is a small bird with a pale yellow breast and brown back. Male larks have a black mask, breast band and “horns.” Both species are listed as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act.“Nesting season for snowy plovers and streaked horned larks begins in early April, coinciding with the scheduled clam digs,” said Anthony Novack, district biologist for WDFW. “Snowy plover nests are difficult to see, so it’s easy to disturb or destroy them without even being aware of it. If an adult is scared off its nest, it leaves the eggs exposed to predators like crows and ravens.”To protect these birds, the department asks that clam diggers avoid the dunes and areas of the beach with soft, dry sand. When driving to a clam-digging area, diggers should enter the beach only at designated access points and stay on the hard-packed sand near or below the high tide line, Novack said.Dig dates in May for Copalis and Mocrocks will be announced after harvest from the April digs has been analyzed.
