Everton manager Roberto Martinez strives for “perfection”

first_imgEverton manager Roberto Martinez is not content with receiving plaudits for the style of his football and will continue to strive for perfection. The attacking talent of Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and Gerard Deulofeu, combined with the Spaniard’s insistence his side play the ball out from the back, has made the Toffees one of the most attractive sides to watch in the Premier League. But there are no points awarded for entertainment and Martinez wants to ensure players add substance to their style – especially after last weekend’s chastening experience when they twice led at Bournemouth, on the second occasion with an added time goal, but still ended up drawing 3-3. “As a footballer you want to help your team win at the weekend but at the end of your career you want to be able to look back at special occasions,” said Martinez. “Joe Royle was a proper Everton giant. To achieve that sort of goalscoring record is special and for Rom to be able to reach that is encouraging and a reminder of what a special footballer we have. “I encourage him to keep working hard and make a massive impact in the game and I think he is in the same wave of thinking. “You are not motivated by records you are motivated by winning games and keeping your place in the side.” They shook off that hangover with a midweek victory over Middlesbrough to set up a two-legged Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City but, with a month to go before that, the manager has ordered full focus on their league form. “Obviously we want to aim for perfection and perfection is to play well, play exciting and attacking football that our fans enjoy and love and then to get a win at the end of it,” he said. “We are still getting through that important period which is the middle third of the competition and we are striving to push each other to become better and because we have such a young group you feel the improvement is always there. “For the next block of games it is vital the attention goes into the Premier League and solely into the Premier League games as December is the most significant month in terms of competing for 15 points in such a short period of time. “I know our fans have been loving the style and the way we have been playing but we will never stop wanting to improve and getting better and promoting that competition for places. “We want to be an exciting team to watch but, at the end of it, we want to be a team who can win consistently.” Key to that will be the form of Lukaku, who has 10 league goals already this season and with 49 in 99 appearances for the club has a record which almost matches that of the great Joe Royle in his first 100 games. The Belgium international has six in his last five matches and is proving to be well worth the club-record £28million spent to sign him from Chelsea two summers ago.

Aggressive batting let us down: Fabian Allen

first_imgKolkata: West Indies batsmen were reckless and paid the price for that by losing to India by five wickets in the T20 series opener here on Sunday, said debutant Fabian Allen.Allen made 27 from 20 balls to take the total to 109/8 after chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav (3/13) and debutant Krunal Pandya (1/15) spun a web around the tourists, reducing them to 87/8 in 18 overs.The 23-year-old said it was not the best of wickets and a score of 150 would have made the game competitive.“It was not the best wicket but we had to be patient, should have played the ball on merit. We were too aggressive; I think we could have easily got 150 or 140, that was the target we were looking for,” Allen said at the post-match news conference on Sunday.“It’s one of those days. We will look to come back in the next game. I hope we learn from this and take it to our next game,” he said ahead of their second T20I in Lucknow Tuesday.Asked if the team missed star all-rounder Andre Russell who, despite being named in the squad, pulled out of the series on the eve of the opening game due to injury, Allen said: “Of course, he is a crucial player in the team, a leader. Chris Gayle was also not around. Young players tried to contribute as much they can.”Allen said they would look to apply themselves better in the next outing.“Anything is possible in T20 games. It does not matter how many wickets you lose… We could have executed efficiently. It was our first game, we will try to execute our plan and play the ball on merit,” he expressed.“In T20s, you have to expect anything. It was one of those days. We will just look to bounce back in the next game,” Allen added. IANS Also Read: Sports Newslast_img read more

Notre Dame uses aggressive style of play in defeat of Orange

first_img Published on April 8, 2015 at 12:42 am Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonati With less than a minute left in the first half, Syracuse attack Halle Majorana was knocked down on the doorstep of a goal, on the right side of the crease. The push fit right in what was already an aggressive game.Except there was no call. Notre Dame rushed the length of the field and SU defender Mallory Vehar returned the favor, knocking down Fighting Irish midfielder Caitlin Gargan. Instead of taking a free-position shot, Gargan passed the ball. As her teammates counted down the seconds left in the half, UND attack Rachel Sexton got a shot past SU goalie Kelsey Richardson to beat the first-half buzzer. “One-goal games, there’s a lot of goals you think about after,” Vehar said. “I think that goal, she shot it last couple seconds, no one was really expecting it to go in.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe goal was partly a result of Notre Dame’s aggressive play. No. 6 SU (9-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) lost to the No. 13 Fighting Irish (8-5, 3-3), 12-11, in overtime on Tuesday in the Carrier Dome. The Fighting Irish outfouled the Orange 41-28 and pressured SU into its worst clearing performance since Feb. 25 against Connecticut. The Fighting Irish’s aggressive game plan — UND pushed the ball in transition and forced SU into mistakes on clears — bled into its play and snapped SU’s rhythm. “We pushed the fast break, that was part of our game plan against Syracuse. This time out was to get them in unsettled situations,” Notre Dame head coach Christine Halfpenny said, “because once they got settled in that high pressure, I thought they did a really good job.”On both of UND’s first two goals, the Fighting Irish pushed the ball from end to end, burning the SU defense in transition. In just over six minutes, Notre Dame took a two-goal lead. It was aggressive on both ends. Less than 10 minutes into the game Vehar was issued a yellow card because she swung her stick at UND midfielder Molly Cobb. In 66 minutes of game time, the teams combined for a total of 69 fouls.Notre Dame tried pushing SU’s tempo on clears. SU brought Richardson out of the net, reaching the opposite 45-yard line and even into the Fighting Irish’s restraining box at one point. “I think they kind of shredded it in the beginning,” Halfpenny said, “and when we started pushing some pressure to their goalkeeper, that started to put a little bit of a kink in the system.”The adjustment forced SU to clear the ball without Richardson coming out of the net as much. SU head coach Gary Gait said the Orange made mistakes by overthrowing the ball. To start the second overtime period, Richardson launched a clear into the SU bench, sending the Notre Dame bench into a frenzy. “We’d be running upfield and they’d be running toward us, they’d get in good position and they’re very good stick checkers and they made some very good checks,” Gait said. “They were all over us and we were caught off guard, not protecting our stick a lot.” The goal at the end of the first half, sparked by Notre Dame pushing the tempo, was unexpected, Vehar said. Gait moved onto the field to talk to the referees, motioning at the scoreboard. On the other side of the field: pure jubilation. Halfpenny turned to her players, mouth gaping, screaming and clapping. Some of her players had already spilled onto the playing field. Before Vehar talked about whether the first-half goal was deflating or if the Orange would like to have the play back, SU attack Taylor Gait answered the question with a whisper to Majorana. “Every goal.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Women of Troy travel to Washington

first_imgAfter dropping three out of four games during a four-game homestand, the Women of Troy will head north this weekend to take on the Washington State Cougars on Friday and the Washington Huskies on Sunday.The Trojans (8-13, 5-5                            Pac-12) are looking to recover from their sluggish efforts at home last weekend after losing 63-60 to Utah on Feb. 1 and 65-49 to Colorado at the Galen Center on Feb. 3. USC led at halftime in both games before being outscored, outshot and outplayed by their opponents in the second half.In the loss against Utah, sophomore guard Ariya Crook and junior forward Cassie Harberts combined for 29 of USC’s 34        second-half points, finishing with 20 and 19 points, respectively. The Trojans, however, could not stop Utah’s hot hand in the second half, as the Utes shot 57 percent from the field.“We are on a quest to put together 40 minutes of good basketball on both offense and defense,” USC head coach Michael Cooper said. “It’s going to take more than one half of good basketball to win the game, and I feel that as a team, we have learned that.”The story of the Colorado game was turnovers, as USC committed 13 turnovers in the second half and 19 total for the game. The Trojans lost their 31-26 halftime lead and threw away an opportunity for its first win against a ranked team; Colorado was ranked No. 22 at the time.“We need to value the basketball a lot more than we usually do,” Cooper said. “When we beat ourselves, it’s very easy for other teams to beat us because they don’t have to put forward the giant effort that it takes to beat us.”This Washington road trip comes at a good time for the Trojans, as they defeated both schools in their first meetings at the Galen Center earlier in the year.Washington State (8-13, 4-6          Pac-12) is coming off two big wins last week against Arizona State and Arizona. The team is led by freshman guard Lia Galdeira, who is averaging 14.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.In their first meeting on Jan. 13, the Women of Troy took Washington State down to the wire. Tied at 59 with just four seconds left, Crook was fouled and knocked down two clutch free throws to take down the Cougars, 61-59. With the win, the Trojans improved to 4-0 in Pac-12 play — their best start since the 2004-05 season.Since that emotional win, the Trojans have struggled to find their groove, losing five out of their last six games and dropping to the middle of the pack in the conference, as they enter the second half of Pac-12 play.“Going on the road, these two games are going to be very important for us,” Harberts said. “I feel that if we come out and play not only one but two good halves of basketball, we should be able to come out on top.”The Washington Huskies               (16-5, 8-2) are currently on a six-game winning streak after also taking down the Arizona schools last week. They defeated Arizona 74-65 and Arizona State 74-61. If the Trojans are going to stop one player, it needs to be Jazmine Davis, who had 37 points in their last meeting. Davis is the Huskies’ top scorer with 19.8 points per game.“She’s definitely a scorer, but if she scores 45 or so points and we still win the game, I’ll be fine with that,” Cooper said. “However, we are definitely going to put up a better defensive front up against her.”Washington received votes in the AP poll this week, but is currently unranked. In their first meeting on Jan. 11, USC rolled over the Huskies 81-72, putting up a season-high in points. Four players finished in double figures.USC-WSU is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Friday, while USC-UW is on tap for a 1 p.m. matinee.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 59-44 loss to No. 2 Virginia

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Small groups of fans began to file out of the Carrier Dome as early as the nine-minute mark in the second half, after Tyus Battle missed back-to-back free throws. The almost-certain outcome had become clear to them at that point, as Syracuse’s offense sputtered to 27 points through 31 minutes. SU’s offensive woes have now spanned three games, as the Orange (15-8, 4-6 Atlantic Coast) lost to No.2-ranked Virginia (22-1, 11-0), 59-44, on Saturday afternoon inside the Carrier Dome.In front of the biggest on-campus crowd in college basketball this season (27,083), only two SU players reached double figures for a season-worst offensive performance against the best defense in the country. The Orange has beaten a Top 10 team every season since 2006-07 but has yet to do so this season as it embarks on the final month of the regular season with eight games to play.Here are three quick takeaways from Syracuse’s loss to the Cavaliers.It’s the name of the gameAfter a fairly strong first 12 minutes offensively — SU kept pace by moving well, finding gaps and scoring opportunities in the Cavaliers’ top-ranked defense — Syracuse struggled to score the basketball. At about the seven-minute mark in the first half, sophomore guard Tyus Battle knocked down a jumper to make it 20-18. The Orange didn’t score again for six-plus minutes, resembling a recurring theme for SU: a fledgling offense.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange has scored 70 points just twice over the past month and a half, making it difficult for even the strongest of 2-3 zones to pick up the slack against quality opponents, such as No. 2 Virginia. It won’t get much easier, as SU plays at Louisville in 48 hours, before playing formidable opposition in North Carolina, Duke and Clemson in the next month.Saturday, SU shot 4-for-21 from deep. There were few open shots. When SU did get one, it came late in the possession. Only Battle and junior point guard Frank Howard, who didn’t come off the floor, reached double figures. The Orange shot 33.3 percent from the field.PressLess than two years ago, Syracuse implemented a full-court press to stun Virginia and become Final Four bound. This time, the Orange turned to its press much earlier in the second half, after SU’s first made basket. It produced an immediate corner trap, from which the ball was knocked out of bounds. UVA broke the press, though, with a few passes on the ensuing inbounds that led to a transition bucket. The Cavaliers worked the middle of the court to produce two-on-one situations at the other end.SU utilized the press only sparingly because it pressures the other team only after made baskets, which were infrequent on the low-scoring afternoon.Staying thinSyracuse head coach Jim Boeheim historically has not played much of a bench, especially in recent years.“You only need five,” he said last week after SU’s win over Pittsburgh. “You can get by.”The only player who came off the bench Saturday was redshirt freshman forward Matthew Moyer. Boeheim said after SU’s loss at Georgia Tech on Wednesday that former walk-on guard Braedon Bayer would get time against Virginia, but he did not play. With freshman guard Howard Washington out for the season and Bourama Sidibe battling tendinitis in his knee, only Moyer comes off the bench to provide a few moments for starters to rest. He came in for Chukwu or Marek Dolezaj. Virginia finished with 27 bench points to SU’s zero.
