Press Association Eriksen hobbled off 40 minutes into Denmark’s 2-1 win over Norway following a late tackle from Vegard Forren. Spurs feared the 21-year-old had ruptured ankle ligaments, but scans revealed he had only suffered a sprain. Press Association Sport understands that Tottenham expect to be without the playmaker for around four weeks. A Tottenham statement read: “Following an MRI scan on Monday it has been determined that Christian Eriksen suffered a sprain of the lateral ankle ligaments playing for Denmark against Norway on Friday. “The scan showed no sign of ruptured ligaments which will result in a shorter period of recovery for the attacking midfielder.” Spurs are reluctant to put an official time frame on his recovery, but if all goes well with Eriksen’s rehabilitation, it is understood that he could be back for the home game against Liverpool on December 15. Spurs signed Eriksen from Ajax for £11.5million in the summer. The creative midfielder was man of the match on his debut against Norwich and he scored in the following fixture against Tromso in the Europa League. He then lost his place in the team to Lewis Holtby following a dip in form, but returned to the starting XI for Spurs’ last game against Newcastle. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has plenty of players who can fill Eriksen’s number 10 role while he is out. Holtby, Erik Lamela, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Harry Kane can play in that position while Villas-Boas also has the option of altering his formation to allow two strikers to play up front, rather than one. Tottenham have received the welcome news that Christian Eriksen’s ankle injury is not as bad as first feared.
She is among 30 Democratic women in Monmouth running for local, county or state office in 2019, a fact celebrated at the county’s Democratic Women’s Caucus during its seventh annual fundraiser Sept. 19 at Branches Catering in West Long Branch. The guest list included state Assemblywoman Joann Downey, freeholder candidate Moira Nelson, Atlantic Highlands Mayor Rhonda LeGrice and many others. The event, raising campaign funds to support female candidates from Monmouth who attended the fundraiser, was expected to bring in around $15,000. “I’ve known for quite some time that I wanted to run for office,” said Nelson, who wore a shirt with the message “the future is female” on the front. “And this felt like the right time. My roots are here in Monmouth County.” The night’s celebration marked the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote. Many in the crowd wore white in honor of the suffragettes. “There should be more women,” Lo Sapio said. “That’s why I’m glad that our lieutenant governor (Sheila Oliver) is a woman and a woman of color. Change takes time. Just because people are Democrats doesn’t mean they’re always right.” “I remember looking for the Democratic people…when I moved here because I was always a Democrat since I was in high school,” she said. “Isn’t that wonderful?” she said of all the women running in Monmouth this year. “Oh, I think it’s fabulous.” In retrospect, she said, her time in public office was “a learning experience.” Rosenbloom grew up in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn and then later the Bronx, in a neighborhood that was a short walk to Yankee Stadium, before meeting her husband and moving to New Jersey in 1946. Four Democratic women – Downey, Malini Guha, Allison Friedman and Barbara Singer – are running for seats in the state Assembly. Nelson is the only candidate for countywide office, while the rest are running for municipal office around Monmouth. “We’re raising funds because women need to have resources,” said the Rev. Veverly Wyche, chair woman of the caucus. “And so our mission is education, empowerment and economic resources.” Aimee Humphreys, the co-chair woman of the caucus, recalled running for Fair Haven Council in 2014, when she was in her mid-60s. She said she never expected to run for office, but her victory that year made her the first Democrat in a quarter of a century to a win a seat on the governing body of Fair Haven. Among those candidates is Nelson, who grew up in Monmouth County, moved away and then returned. Now a resident of Asbury Park, she is running for one of the two freeholder seats up for grabs. Over her 93 years, she raised a family, practiced law and continued to stay active in politics, even serving as a delegate to the 1976 Democratic national convention, where Jimmy Carter was nominated for president. Rosenbloom, honored at the fundraiser with the women’s suffrage award, said she is a Democrat “because I believe in their policies.” “Women have kind of been left out of the whole process a lot,” said Lucille Lo Sapio, a candidate for Hazlet Township Committee. “And maybe things would be better right now if we had more women” in office, she said. “We believe that we are strong leaders and that we are mothers, we are teachers, we’re educators, we are those who organize in the community,” she said. “And so we believe that it’s our time to rise and be leaders.” Norma Rosenbloom was active in Democratic politics in Monmouth County for decades, until she finally decided she would run for political office this year in Shrewsbury. “We need more female representation,” Nelson said when asked about the state of women in politics in New Jersey. “We need more women at all levels of government.” The Monmouth County Democratic Women’s Caucus gathered to show support for candidates with local roots. The event also celebrated the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. Among the attendees were Veverly Wyche, left, caucus chair, former Fair Haven councilwoman Aimee Humphreys; honoree Norma Rosenbloom and Assemblywoman JoAnn Downey (D-11).Photo by Philip Sean Curran In 2018, a record number of women, more than 100, were elected to Congress, including two from New Jersey, incumbent Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) and newcomer Mikie Sherill (D- 12). Yet in a deep blue part of the country where Democrats control all the levers of state government, political power in New Jersey is squarely in the hands of men, namely the governor, the state Senate president and the speaker of the Assembly. Rosenbloom said she is not expecting to win her race in a Republican stronghold. But her message, she said, is to encourage fellow women to run for office and run again if they lose the first time. By Philip Sean Curran “It’s time for women to have their place and their voice,” she said. At 93 years old. She said the caucus has been growing ever since its founding in 2012. She attributed that to “women having a desire to get up and be leaders.”

Bottom side QPR stubbornly battled through the first half of the west London derby at Stamford Bridge, where Marko Marin was fortunate not to be sent off.The Chelsea wide-man escaped with a yellow card after a horrendous fourth-minute challenge on Stephane Mbia which could easily have left his opponent with a broken leg.Rangers defended solidly but were almost undone by a mistake from Mbia just after the half-hour mark.Marin robbed the midfielder and found Oscar, whose shot was deflected wide by R’s defender Clint Hill.David Luiz and Victor Moses sent efforts over the bar and keeper Julio Cesar saved with his legs to deny Oscar as Chelsea dominated most of the half.And they wanted a penalty when Ryan Bertrand went down near the edge of the box after being accidentally clipped by Jamie Mackie.Rangers’ only real sight of goal came when Shaun Wright-Phillips – on as a substitute for the injured Junior Hoilett – dragged a shot wide after being put through by Esteban Granero.Hoilett limped off on 16 minutes with what appeared to be a hamstring problem.Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Turnbull; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Bertrand; Luiz, Lampard; Marin, Oscar, Moses; Torres. Subs: Hilario, Cole, Ramires, Mata, Hazard, Ferreira, Piazon.QPR (4-1-4-1): Cesar, Onuoha, Nelsen, Hill, Fabio; Derry; Mackie, Derry, Granero; Hoilett (Wright-Phillips 16); Taarabt.

DENVER — When the Giants’ offense caught fire at the beginning of July, it was third baseman Evan Longoria and left fielder Alex Dickerson providing the spark.Dickerson is expected to miss another week with a right oblique strain, but the Giants are optimistic their lineup will receive a much-needed reinforcement for Sunday’s series finale in Denver.If all goes well during pregame tests on Saturday for Longoria, who has been sidelined with a foot injury, the Giants are expected to welcome him …

M.S. Dhoni celebrates with teammates after winning the second Test against England at Lord’s on Monday.It may sound cliched, but the roots of India’s historical win at Lord’s can be traced back to the 0-4 debacle on the 2011 tour to England. Every time India lost a Test during that disastrous summer, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni would stress on the importance of learning from the mistakes and moving on.Throughout the series, Dhoni hardly ever lost his cool despite the results going against his team. Bogged down by injuries, Dhoni was already looking ahead and plotting for retribution on India’s next visit. The plan came to fruition at the Home of Cricket, with India winning its first Tests on the hallowed turf in 28 years by defeating Alastair Cook’s team in conditions tailor-made for the home team’s benefit.Ishant SharmaThe Indian players feel the triumph had everything to do with the preparedness to take on England on green wickets. And they thank Dhoni and the coaching staff for their farsightedness. One of the players said that even though the team played two practice games before the first Test at Trent Bridge, the wickets provided were in complete contrast to what is generally expected in England. The team management had made this clear to every member in the squad. “Most of us guys weren’t there in 2011. So when we saw the pitch ahead of the first practice game, we were pretty surprised to see a batting paradise. But that is when the seniors made it clear that this was to prevent us from adapting to English conditions. With Dhoni and some of the other players facing this very problem in the last series, we knew we would get tough conditions only when the series starts,” the player told Mail Today. He said it was a surprise to see a flat deck for the first Test.advertisementPicture of Dhoni & Co. on the lines of the 2001 Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Lagaan’ on Twitter.”We were actually caught off guard. We had expected a wicket that would suit pacers and help the home team. But when that didn’t happen, we knew that the ‘green top’ would come sooner rather than later, and they actually did that at Lord’s. But we were prepared,” he added.Another player said the most satisfying part of the win was how India looked more at ease on the green track than the England players. “As an international team and from past experiences, we were prepared for any kind of wicket. I guess it was more about executing our plans better and we did just that,” he told Mail Today.
