DUBLIN, Ireland -- Giovanni Trapattoni lost his job as Ireland coach Wednesday after a five-year run that started out strongly but ended in a string of dismal defeats. Billy Hamilton Jersey . Tuesdays 1-0 loss away to Austria meant the Republic of Ireland no longer has any realistic hope of qualifying for next years World Cup. It proved to be the last straw for the Football Association of Ireland, which had heralded Trapattoni as the most successful club coach in history when hiring him in 2008. The federation and Trapattoni said in a joint statement they mutually decided to end a contract that was supposed to run through June. The FAI also cut ties with Trapattonis longtime assistants, Marco Tardelli and Franco Rossi. "We leave this country with emotion because we understand the Irish supporters, who have a well-deserved international reputation and they have our utmost respect," Trapattoni, 74, said in his statement. He cancelled a planned news conference. Trapattonis qualification campaign for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil featured an Ireland team with little attacking flair, a weak midfield and an unusually shaky defence. The opening home match, a 6-1 drubbing by Group C favourite Germany last October, was Irelands worst home defeat since 1931. The FAI offered no hint when it would hire a long-term successor. Ireland still has two World Cup qualifiers next month in Germany and at home versus Kazakhstan, but analysts agreed that Ireland probably would install a temporary caretaker. Irish betting company Paddy Power listed former Celtic, Aston Villa and Sunderland manager Martin ONeill as the clear favourite to succeed Trapattoni. ONeill, from Northern Ireland, is without a coaching job and has worked with many of Irelands players at English and Scottish club level. Steve Staunton, Trapattonis predecessor as Ireland manager, said it had been a mistake to hire a coach so foreign to Irish players and culture. Trapattoni, lacking fluency in English, struggled to communicate with his team, didnt watch the club performances of Irish players in person, and spent most of his time in his native Milan. Staunton said he wanted the next manager to be from Ireland or Britain, "someone who knows what the Irish boys are about and knows the mentality." Criticism of the often inflexible, long-ball tactics deployed by Trapattoni had swelled since 2012, when Ireland lost all three of its European Championship group matches in one-sided fashion. He also was lambasted for eccentric squad selections that failed to promote young talent in favour of lacklustre veterans who stuck from his initial 2008 squads. Trapattoni often countered by noting -- too frankly for some Irish ears -- that Irelands top players were mostly run-of-the-mill talents who struggled for regular playing time in their British clubs. Brian Kerr, a Dubliner who coached Ireland in 2003-05, said Trapattonis negative defensive tactics downplayed his players skills and hurt their morale. "I dont agree with him when he says Irish players are not capable of passing the ball around. They are professional footballers, many playing in the Premier League. They can pass the ball. Ive seen them do it," Kerr said. Dubliners seeking a return to Irelands 1990s glory days under Jack Charlton had celebrated the 2008 hiring of Trapattoni, waving Irish flags adorned with the Italians grandfatherly face above the slogan "In Trap we trust." Ireland had not qualified for an international tournament since 2002. But Trapattoni guided his squad to the verge of qualification for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa -- only to be denied by an egregious, and uncalled, handball by Thierry Henry that produced a decisive extra-time goal for France in its playoff with Ireland. The FAI appealed in vain to FIFA for a slot in South Africa. Trapattoni received stronger praise for leading Ireland in 2012 into the European Championship, its first time in that tournament since 1988. But speculation on his dismissal steadily grew after Ireland lost all three group matches in Poland, where the Irish were paired with eventual finalists Spain and Italy. They respectively trounced the Irish 4-0 and 2-0. Irelands last positive result of note under Trapattoni was a 1-1 friendly draw against England at Wembley Stadium in May. Trapattoni came to Ireland with a stunning record of success at club level. He won six Italian titles with Juventus and one with Inter Milan, the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, the Portuguese league with Benfica and the Austrian league with Salzburg. He also won three UEFA Cups, the Cup Winners Cup, the European Super Cup and the European Cup. But his four years in charge of Italy were disappointing. They featured a second-round 2002 World Cup defeat by South Korea and failure to advance from the group stages of Euro 2004. Johnny Bench Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Scott Feldman Jersey . Helwani said that Weidman has been dealing with recurring swelling and pain in his knees related to torn meniscus he suffered as a teenager and the problems came to a head last week when he suffered prolonged swelling and pain in his left knee, resulting in the decision to undergo an arthroscopic scope procedure to clean up the tear in both knees. . At this rate, the Flyers captain is set to be remembered more for a fantastic finish.Oakland, CA ( - The Golden State Warriors exacted some revenge en route to their best start in 20 years. Stephen Curry had 28 points, seven assists and six rebounds as the Warriors rolled to a 121-104 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. The 4-0 Warriors, who havent opened a season this well since beginning 5-0 in 1994-95, were ousted in seven games by the Clippers in the first round of last years playoffs. Draymond Green posted 24 points, eight boards and five assists and Klay Thompson netted 19 points for the Warriors, who shot an NBA season-high 58.1 percent (43-of-74) from the floor. I liked the ball movement ... I feel like we can get a lot better, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. DeAndre Jordan tallied 17 points and 13 rebounds, Chris Paul supplied 15 points, 12 assists and four steals and Jamal Crawford netted 24 points off the bench for Los Angeles, which fell to 3-2 on the young campaign. Its no secret that we got to get better. Were not playing the right way, Paul said. Reggie Sanders Jersey. . Curry scored seven points during a 14-2 first-quarter run, which staked the Warriors to a 21-11 advantage. They led 30-20 after Leandro Barbosa nailed a 3-pointer in the waning seconds of the opening frame. Green and Thompson each put in five points during a 14-2 surge in the second as the onslaught continued. Two Green free throws with 4:03 to go gave Golden State a 52-31 cushion. Curry and Thompson combined to score 18 points in the second and the Warriors took a 65-52 spread into the break. The Clippers scored 22 points in the second. Golden State took a 102-75 advantage into the fourth, where the Warriors coasted to the easy victory. Game Notes David Lee made his season debut due to a strained left hamstring, but he reaggravated the injury and played less than seven minutes ... The Warriors and Clippers split their four regular-season meetings last year ... Golden State was 15-of-25 (60 percent) from beyond the arc.
