Wilfred Ndidi named best ball-holding midfielder in Premier League

first_img”Without Ndidi’s qualities as that sole midfield pivot Rodgers may not have the confidence to also pick two attacking full-backs and twin attacking midfielders.“One of Ndidi’s greatest strengths is his uncomplicated style.“The 23-year-old largely stays in the middle third of the pitch and is rarely caught out of position.

He further noted that while Jamie Vardy is Leicester’s and the Premier League’s top scorer, it is Ndidi who should be regarded as their most important player.“He (Ndidi) efficiently breaks up play and recovers possession, which allows Leicester’s manager to be ambitious with his team selections.

Cole: Rooney still has future at United

first_img Speaking at the launch of the ‘Legends are Back’ game between Manchester United and Real Madrid that will take place at Old Trafford on June 2, Cole added: “I wasn’t playing regularly and I wasn’t a happy man so I made my mind up. In hindsight I should have stayed. “I had just signed a new contract and had a fantastic relationship with the manager. We talked about it numerous times before he finally said he would let me go. You make decisions for a reason and that was simply because I wanted to play. But it was the wrong thing to do.” Cole believes those sentiments are even more true now given the game is based around a squad system. And he does not think Rooney should allow the selection for one match overshadow everything else he has achieved at Old Trafford. “One game cannot determine your career at a football club,” said Cole. “The manager leaves big players out of big matches. It has happened down the years. I was one of them.” Cole is adamant Rooney still has a significant contribution still to make to the Old Trafford cause. “Wayne has got bags of ability and I don’t think this is going to make any difference to how the manager sees him,” added Cole. “He still has a massive future at Manchester United. “Robin van Persie has come in and done extremely well but Wayne will play numerous amounts of games for United and score lots of goals. I cannot see it being a problem.” Press Association Former striker Andy Cole hopes Wayne Rooney does not use him as an example for why he should leave Manchester United.center_img The immediate reaction to Rooney being left out of Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting line-up for last week’s Champions League defeat by Real Madrid centred around whether he had any future at Old Trafford. If he did leave, it would mirror the situation Cole found himself in following the arrival of Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2001, when he found himself shunted down the pecking order. At 30, he did not want to hang around as a back-up player and ended up joining Blackburn but, looking back, it is a decision Cole now regrets, and he said: “I can understand how Wayne might feel. Looking back on what happened to me, if I hadn’t been so headstrong and stubborn I could have stayed at United.” last_img read more

Syracuse football squares off with robust Notre Dame defense

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 27, 2014 at 12:31 pm Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ As a fan of football, Tim Lester is amazed by Notre Dame’s defense. He enjoys watching it. When he does, he said he doesn’t know what’s coming.But in the eyes of Syracuse’s quarterbacks coach, the No. 8 Fighting Irish’s (3-0) secondary poses a serious threat. Lester said the Orange (2-1) won’t overly adjust to Notre Dame’s defense. The Irish play more man-to-man coverage than any team SU has faced this season and run a series of highly unpredictable sets on third down, fueled by unusually versatile athletes.“It’s trying to figure out and put ourselves in a situation, a good situation when they’ve got people running all over the place,” Lester said. “And it’s all the Rex Ryan stuff on third down.”Fighting Irish defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder joined the team after coaching the New York Jets linebackers last season. Ryan, the Jets head coach, is known for using a version of the 46 defense honed by his father Buddy, with the Chicago Bears of the 1980s.The defense is known for bringing pressure from all angles with unusual personnel — for instance, safeties playing as linebackers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s had people influence his creativity when he was with the Jets,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “I see some of the same carryover, some of the same man concepts.”Sometimes, Shafer said, VanGorder will have his defense play man-to-man coverage on one side of the field and zone on the other.Lester has been giving Syracuse players stats on the percentages of which kind of coverage Notre Dame plays out of each defensive formation, he said. Most teams run man coverage as its fifth- or sixth-most used defense, Lester said, but it’s Notre Dame’s third-most frequently used.And when the Irish slips into its 3-3-5 set — what some teams call “Okie” or “star” packages — they drop defensive lineman Romeo Okwara into coverage, Lester said.  Where Lester usually sees a lineman lumber off as defensive back trots onto the field, UND keeps the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Okwara on the field.“He’s that big and athletic that he can play the nickel, which is impressive,” Lester said.While Shafer credits VanGorder as a creative coach, he’s also one managing a highly talented defense.“It’s always easy to be creative when you’ve got guys that can run around and do those things,” Shafer said. “And he’s got a bunch of them.” Commentslast_img read more

Emma Russell sets all-time goals record in 5-0 win

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 20, 2015 at 6:50 pm Contact Sam: sjfortie@syr.edu | @Sam4TR Needing one goal to become No. 2 Syracuse’s all-time leading goal scorer, senior forward Emma Russell intercepted a Yale outlet pass and broke toward the net. She put home the 48th goal of her career to unseat Lindsey Conrad as the program’s top scorer and spearheaded SU’s (7-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) 5-0 win over Yale (2-3) on Sunday at Johnson Field.The Orange outshot the Bulldogs 36-6, including 26 shots on goal. Additionally, SU drew 26 corners.Nine minutes into the contest, Emma Lamison, a transfer from Northeastern, scored on a pass from Alma Fenne. It was Lamison’s fifth point of the weekend after scoring the game-winner over No. 11 Boston College Saturday and adding an assist in the game.Three minutes later, Zoe Wilson assisted a Roos Weers goal and the Orange headed to halftime with a 2-0 lead. It was a contrast from Syracuse’s last two games that have been headlined by second-half comebacks against ranked opponents.The Orange didn’t stop rolling in the second half as Russell scored her record-breaking goal just over a minute into the second frame.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn a day when one of SU’s seniors punctuated her career with a record-breaking goal, freshman Niki Neidhart scored her first collegiate goal to pile on the Orange’s lead.Alyssa Manley converted on a penalty corner chance in the final minutes to cement the 5-0 final score.Senior goalkeeper Jess Jecko saw four shots on net and turned away each of them to record her third shutout in seven games this season.Syracuse returns to J.S. Coyne Stadium on Friday, Sept. 25 when it plays No. 4 Virginia in a conference matchup featuring two of the nation’s best. Commentslast_img read more

Sakash: No. 1 upsets shouldn’t be so surprising

first_imgWhy should anyone be surprised?From the nascence of the 2010-2011 college basketball regular season, it was obvious that this was going to be a wildly unpredictable year.Okay, so maybe not this unpredictable, but still there was never a clear-cut favorite. Ohio State and Kansas were the closest things, followed by Duke, especially when Kyrie Irving returned to the rotation, but what had any of those teams done to stoke confidence in the hearts of their fans?The number one overall seed in the tournament field, Ohio State, may have had the most impressive resume in the country. It went 34-2 in the regular season, losing only at Wisconsin and Purdue, two extremely difficult places to play.But alarms, bells and sirens should have fired off everywhere when Northwestern took the Buckeyes to overtime in the Big Ten Tournament. Northwestern is terrible.The great teams of the past decade, like the two North Carolina clubs, the Jayhawks from 2008 and even the Florida teams who won back to back championships, take teams like Northwestern and reduce them to piles of Wildcat manure; they certainly don’t let them hang around.The rest of the Big Ten, aside from maybe Wisconsin and Purdue, two teams who themselves had looked terrible at times during the season, was really bad this year. Indiana can barely make shots, Iowa is not much better, Michigan State was a ghost of itself and Northwestern was, well, Northwestern.It all amounts to a conference for Ohio State to beat upon and bolster a regular season record that was rendered meaningless when Kentucky, a team that struggled in an SEC that was much worse than the Big Ten, beat the Buckeyes in the tournament this past weekend.Then there’s Kansas. It is probably the biggest mystery of the tournament. In every game it played, including round one (or two or one and a half or whatever the NCAA wants to call it), it looked and played uncomfortably tight.Kansas let Boston U and Illinois, two teams it has four times more talent than, hang around until the late stages of each game. The Jayhawks then proceeded to shoot 2-21 (that’s 9.5% if you’re keeping score at home) from the 3-point line in their loss to Virginia Commonwealth.It’s a problem for Kansas that’s beginning to evolve into a trend, as last season the Jayhawks, who were once again a one-seed, were bounced unexpectedly in the second round by Northern Iowa.If Bill Self hadn’t brought his team to the promise land in 2008, it’s quite possible he might be out, or at least placed upon an extremely warm chair, after another wildly disappointing finish to a season with a roster that should have at least made it to the Final Four.The final question mark on probably the most unpredictable tournament of recent memory is fixed behind Duke.It might deserve a pass this year because of the situation it was put in when freshman standout Kyrie Irving returned right before the tournament.What does a coach do when the talented freshman, who proved before he suffered an injury that kept him out of the lineup for the majority of the season and could take over games in the flash of an eye, returns?Could Mike Krzyzewski have sat him out in fear of sacrificing the on-court chemistry of his team?Of course not. When the most talented player (possibly) in the country is available on the roster, he’s got to play.Perhaps it wouldn’t have made a difference. National Player of the Year Candidate Derrick Williams and Arizona looked like a team possessed by greatness that night, and Kyrie Irving or not, Duke probably would have lost that game. Probably.In any case, the Final Four has arrived, where the four teams remaining have seeds that add up to 26, which is an NCAA record.On one side of the draw (that’s tennis lingo for those not versed in the sport), there are in fact some marquee names! Hoorah!Kentucky takes on hall of famer Jim Calhoun, Kemba Walker and the hottest team in the country, otherwise known as Connecticut.In any normal year, it’d be easy to say that the winner of the Kentucky-Connecticut national semifinal game will certainly go on to beat whichever team comes out of the other side between Butler and VCU.But it’s not any other year; it’s this year. And who the heck knows?last_img read more

Clayton Kershaw injury update: Dodgers ace takes ‘good first step’ with rehab start

first_imgMORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNKershaw was pulled in the top of the fifth while the Oklahoma City Dodgers trailed, 2-0, earning a no-decision.”Good first step and kind of got through everything I needed to, got up to that fifth inning,” Kershaw said, per The Associated Press. “Got some guys on base, worked out of the stretch, did multiple different things. So it was a good day. … Come out of it feeling good and get ready for the next one.”Kershaw’s streak of eight straight Opening Day starts ended this season after he felt inflammation in his left shoulder early in spring training. Kershaw and the Dodgers were optimistic he would be ready for the season opener but ultimately decided he needed more time to recover. The Dodgers indicated earlier this week that the left-hander would need one more rehab outing before returning to the Dodgers rotation. Kershaw, however, wants to ensure he’s completely ready to return before ending his rehab stint.”I’d love to pitch the next one for the (L.A.) Dodgers, but I also don’t want to put the bullpen at risk with a pitch count that’s too low,” he said.A three-time Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw signed a three-year, $93 million extension in November. He posted a 2.73 ERA in 2018 and he is 153-69 with a 2.39 ERA in 11 MLB seasons, all with the Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw took a positive step forward in his rehab process as he continues to recover from shoulder inflammation. In front of 12,472 fans who came out to Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, the Dodgers ace gave up two runs and four hits in 4 1/3 innings Thursday during his rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City. He threw 61 pitches against the San Antonio Missions, the Brewers’ top farm club, and also walked two and struck out six as he settled into a groove.last_img read more
