Everton and Ireland defender Seamus Coleman 1 Seamus Coleman has been ruled out of Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2016 qualifying crunch match with Germany on Thursday with a hamstring injury, manager Martin O’Neill has confirmed.The defender suffered the knock in Everton’s shock 3-1 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea in September, and has spent the last three-and-a-half weeks on the sidelines as a result.Coleman was forced to sit out of games against Liverpool, Swansea, West Brom and Reading in the League Cup, and O’Neill revealed in a press conference on Wednesday the full-back had not recovered in time to face world champions Germany.He could, however, be fit enough to return to action against Poland on Sunday, which could prove crucial in their quest for a place in the finals in France.“Seamus had a day off because he’s worked exceptionally hard over the last couple of days,” O’Neill said. “He’s done really, really well but he will not be in the game, but I expect him to be fully ready for Sunday.”
1 Lille are preparing a January swoop for Newcastle winger Yoan Gouffran, according to reports in France.The 29-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular starting-spot under new Magpies boss Steve McClaren and is considering his options.Bournemouth wanted the Frenchman in the summer, while Championship club Charlton failed with a loan bid in November.And now, according to several reports in France, Ligue 1 side Lille have joined the race for Gouffran.The former Bordeaux man is moving into the final 18 months of his contract and Lille believe he could be snapped up for as little as £1m.

Manuel Pellegrini 1 Manuel Pellegrini says Manchester City will not make any signings this month and has ruled out Wilfried Bony leaving the club.The City boss has been tipped to launch a move for a striker in the January window, with suggestions Bony could head back to his former club Swansea.But Pellegrini insists he is happy with his current squad, telling reporters on Friday: “Our squad is complete. Nobody will come and nobody will go out.“We have options until the last day, but at the moment, no news.”Bony has struggled to make an impact since his £28million move from Swansea last January and Sergio Aguero has regularly been sidelined by injury.But Pellegrini says he has faith in his current strikeforce and insists 19-year-old Kelechi Iheanacho has proved he is ready to take his chance when it comes.“Kelechi has been involved from the first game of this season. He’s in the squad because he’s important in that position,” he said.“It’s important for him that when he has the opportunity to play, to do it in the way he did in the last game against Norwich.“He’s the answer for a lot of questions that you asked before about whether we need to bring in another striker – the other striker is Kelechi.”

But that declaration, apparently aimed at a possible general election next month, backfired after Brown was accused of playing politics. It also turned out that some of the 1,000 he described as being withdrawn were already home, and others had already been announced as heading home. In his formal statement to Parliament, Brown said a decision would be made in the spring as to how long the reduced force of 2,500 would remain in Iraq. At a briefing at the Foreign Office after Brown’s statement, a senior British official said of the final 2,500 troops that “there was no guarantee they will be there beyond the end of 2008.” The official said Britain was on a “glide path” of irreversible reductions. The official spoke on condition of anonymity under Foreign Office rules. In his response to Brown in Parliament, the leader of the opposition Conservative party, David Cameron, seemed to sum up the content of Brown’s statement, saying: “Now the troops are coming home.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LONDON – Prime Minister Gordon Brown told the House of Commons on Monday that he would remove half of the 5,000 British troops in Iraq by next spring, and he left open the strong possibility that all British soldiers would leave Iraq by the end of 2008. Brown said the cuts were possible because of what he described as the progress made in training Iraqi security forces. He described the situation in Basra in southern Iraq, where the British troops are based, as calmer. Since President George W. Bush has made clear that U.S. troops will remain heavily committed in Iraq at least through his administration’s end in January 2009, it appears that the tight alliance on Iraq forged between Brown’s predecessor, Tony Blair, and Bush is unraveling. Indeed, a hallmark of Brown’s three months as prime minister has been the relative distance he has established from the U.S. president. The timetable of reductions appears to fit neatly into the calculus of a British general election that is now expected to be in 2009. Britain’s role as America’s largest coalition partner has been highly unpopular among voters, and as Brown spoke, thousands of protesters massed outside Parliament chanting slogans calling for immediate withdrawal.
NEW YORK – Oil futures jumped to a new record close of $90.46 a barrel Thursday on news that OPEC production increases aren’t coming as fast as expected and that the cartel won’t announce new output quotas when it meets next month. Prices rose in early trading on growing concerns about conflict in the Middle East and declining supplies of crude in the U.S. They got a further boost after Dow Jones Newswires reported that Oil Movements, a company that tracks oil tanker traffic, said crude shipments from Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries members will grow more slowly than anticipated through early November. Meanwhile, OPEC Secretary General Abdalla el-Badri told The Wall Street Journal Asia the cartel is not in discussions to boost production by 500,000 barrels. El-Badri’s comments counter rumors that Saudi Arabia is pushing for a production increase. In September, OPEC bowed to Saudi pressure and announced a production increase of 500,000 barrels a day, effective Nov. 1. Light, sweet crude for December delivery rose $3.36 to settle at $90.46 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after rising as high as $90.60 earlier. Geopolitical events influenced early trading, with crude rising after Lebanese troops fired on Israeli warplanes. A conflict between Israel and Lebanon wouldn’t itself have much impact on oil supplies, but traders worry that any hostilities in the Middle East would eventually draw in big oil producers such as Saudi Arabia and Iran.
