Gomez: Lozano can have Chicharito impact at Man Utd

first_img “But here’s the thing – Javier Hernandez before he gets to Manchester United was a nobody in world sport. “Let’s be honest, nobody had ever heard of him unless you were a Mexico soccer fan.

There’s no two ways about it, you go,” Gomez told ESPN. “[€50m] is a lot for a player that hasn’t played much, a player who is surplus in your rotation at the moment, a player that you’ve asked to play not in his natural position but as a second forward, and hasn’t really produced. “A handful of games really where he’s started, maybe two or three goals, a few assists – not exactly screaming €50m from Manchester United.Advertisement Former USA international, Herculez Gomez, is backing Manchester United’s interest in Napoli midfielder.

Boyd set for Burnley move

first_img Scotland international Boyd joined the Tigers midway through their promotion campaign in 2012/13 and featured intermittently in the Barclays Premier League last season, as well as coming off the bench in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal. But he is now well down the pecking order and has been offered the chance of a key role at Turf Moor. Press Association Hull manager Steve Bruce expects forward George Boyd to sign for Burnley after allowing him to hold talks with the Clarets.center_img Boyd is expected to cost around £3million. “It looks like Boydy will go to Burnley. We allowed George to speak to Burnley and personally I wish him well,” said Bruce after his side lost 2-1 at Aston Villa. “He got an offer of a three or four year contract at Burnley and the chance to play. “But I’ve been in the game a long time and if all professional footballers were like George Boyd my job would be easy.” Bruce also confirmed the signing of Cork City defender Brian Lenihan, although the 20-year-old is likely to go straight into the club’s development squad rather than challenging for a first-team place. “Lenihan is done and dusted. He’s one for the future,” added Bruce. last_img read more

Cricket News Rohit Sharma’s India aim to bounce back after Wellington drubbing against New Zealand

first_img New Delhi: In Twenty20 Internationals, India has endured a 12-year struggle when it comes to facing New Zealand. Ever since their encounter in 2007 at the World T20, India has been on the receiving end of heartbreaks. In Wellington, India were blown away in all departments. With the bat, Tim Seifert’s brilliant 84 and solid knocks from Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor boosted the Kiwis to their highest-score against India. The 80-run loss is a massive wake-up call for India as they look to sustain the momentum after winning the ODI series 4-1. With the next match in Auckland and with the short boundaries on offer, a similar display by New Zealand could prove fatal for Rohit’s side.For New Zealand, the one thing that was missing in their ODI losses was the lack of a fast start from the openers. In the Wellington T20I, Seifert and Colin Munro gave the Kiwis an aggressive start. Both players found the boundary on a regular basis and at the end of the powerplay, they were scoring at a rate of over 10 runs an over. The high run-rate and combined with a solid opening partnership allowed the middle order to capitalise and end on a high.With the ball, Williamson’s side has covered their bases with variety and pace. Lockie Ferguson made the difference with his pace which went over 150 kmph on a regular basis. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner showed their ability to dry up the runs in the middle overs while Tim Southee was impressive with the ball. Before the match, Southee had admitted that he was worried about his form but he responded with 3/17 to bounce back in style. India have lost seven T20Is against New Zealand.India have never won a T20I in New Zealand.India have won only two T20Is in contests against New Zealand. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. For India, the nature of the loss has forced them to rethink. Khaleel Ahmed continued to struggle and the team could replace him with either Siddharth Kaul or Mohammad Siraj, who warmed the bench. The spinners, Krunal Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal, did alright but the team management will also consider including chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. India will be aiming to be sharp on the field, with Dinesh Karthik dropping two catches and the ever-dependable MS Dhoni dropping a catch off Seifert. With the bat, Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar showed some sustained aggression but the damage was already done as the asking rate mounted. A loss in Auckland will prolong India’s pain and the short boundaries will only make the task of the bowlers a lot harder. highlightslast_img read more

Bleach: Next men in

first_imgClich? as the words may read, Montee Ball’s response after the Rose Bowl loss rang with the authenticity of someone who already had a goal burned into his mind:“Today, tomorrow, the next day and every day. I am ready for next year, I am ready for it now,” Ball said. “We are going to all come back, and we are going to use this motivation to come out on fire.”And that is the question. When a team suffers a disappointment in a championship-type game, how do they bounce back?In the NFL, there is usually at least a one-year hangover after a Super Bowl loss. You have to go back to 1993 and the Buffalo Bills to find a losing team that made it back to the championship round.In college, the history of Rose Bowl losers is a bit more hopeful. Oregon lost in last year’s granddaddy of them all and bounced back alright. USC and Michigan both lost Rose Bowls this decade and immediately returned. Still, there have been washouts like Illinois and Washington State that ended up just being flashes in the pan.So, what will determine how Wisconsin rises from the ashes?For one, how they turnover and replace departed players.Wisconsin is losing talent to Sundays. Quite a lot of it. So here is a way-too-early-but-why-the-hell-not look at what the 2011 version of the Badgers need to replace to win the Leaders and Legends Conference, formerly known as the Big Ten; because discussing offensive coordinator Paul Chryst’s bizarre play calling just doesn’t seem as productive, not to mention depressing.J.J. Watt – The loss of Watt might hurt beyond comprehension. In watching the junior defensive end depart a season early, the Badgers lose their top leader on defense, their top playmaker and the only consistent pass rusher on the defensive line. Making matters worse for media concerns only, now Aaron Henry remains on defense as the only worthwhile quote. Bummer.The stats for Watt are something out of a video game with a created player. He is second on the team in tackles as a defensive end and someone every single offensive coordinator prepares for weekly. He has more than twice the sacks of any other Badger and TWENTY-ONE tackles for a loss. The next closest UW defender has eight. He blocked three kicks on the season, forced two fumbles and intercepted a pass.Oh yeah, and Watt was second on the team in pass break-ups, with nine.[Sounds of Bret Bielema muttering into his scotch]Making matters worse, there isn’t any obvious replacement on the defensive line like Watt was to O’Brien Schofield. The spot opposite Watt was a revolving door this season of Louis Nzegwu, David Gilbert and a little Tyler Dippel/Pat Muldoon action.New UW defensive coordinator Charles Partridge knows Watt cannot be replaced. It remains to be seen whether he can coax even half of Watt’s production and value from the returning ends.John Clay – And … big who cares. Clay was a good back, one who could always pick up the one-yard TD or first down and excelled behind the Badgers NFL offensive line. He somehow won Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2009 without anyone realizing how much he was a product of his environment.But his limitations were obvious and obnoxious. He weighed too much to ever have effective breakaway speed when it came to foot races down the sideline. He was so susceptible to shoe string tackles; no defensive back ever bothered trying any other way to bring him down – because he never once leapt over the lowered arms. Sometimes he forgot that as a “260” pound back he was supposed to punish tacklers and would dance instead of bludgeon. He was as useful as I am when it came to third down.His loss is least damaging, however, because Montee Ball and James White have proven they can carry the load better than Clay. Both had at least a half yard better per carry average and both accounted for more touchdowns. Plus, Jeff Lewis and Melvin Gordon are pretty highly regarded runners in their own right.Like Clay did to P.J. Hill, so Ball and White ousted Clay. He was ultimately expendable.Dave Doeren – Doeren grabbing a head coaching job at Northern Illinois will be a blessing in disguise.Coaching defense at UW should not be that hard (relatively speaking of course). The offense has been good for the past four years and absolutely drains the clock. Camp Randall provides one of the top home field advantages in all of college football. Chris Maragos, DeAndre Levy, O’Brien Schofield and J.J. Watt are all in (or going to be in) the NFL.Still, with all that going for him, Doeren’s defenses have settled with 20.5 points per game (2010), 21.8 ppg (2009), 26.5 ppg (2008) and 23.2 ppg (2007).Not horrible – except for everything about 2008 – but certainly not great. Those numbers also include three cupcake games every year to pad those totals each season. There were very few games, if any, that you would credit the UW defense with winning over his four years.Simply average to the extreme.Blake Sorensen – His loss leaves a giant hole on the team.I mean, who else can wear a porn star ‘stache with such grace and dirty shoulder length hair with such style? It is time for Jared Abbrederis to step up and grow the Fu Manchu.Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt – It hurts, obviously, losing the two most talented members of your offensive line. But with that caveat out of the way, UW’s O-line will once again be the best in the Big Ten. Just maybe not by such a big margin.Center Peter Konz is a top pro prospect – something Bielema was kind enough to reveal that Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson had expressed. Kevin Zeitler is a returning all-conference guard. Ricky Wagner should move nicely to left tackle after a year starting as right tackle and is someone that Bielema has described as the most talented offensive lineman in the program. For all the absurd expectations, Josh Oglesby is still an all-Big Ten offensive lineman. At left guard, Travis Frederick – the first-ever true freshman lineman to start a game for Wisconsin – will be a force again, fresh off a redshirt season.The saddest part, of course, is losing the grizzly bear Moffitt, my personal favorite player.Lance Kendricks – It is Wisconsin. They ALWAYS find a tight end. My money is on Sherard Cadogan putting on muscle and becoming the next pass-catching star.Scott Tolzien – He led the nation in completion percentage and won the Johnny Unitas Award. He will be the next Wisconsin heir to Clipboard King in the NFL after the Colts draft him.Thankfully, there is plenty of talent at the quarterback position for UW. It is all just raw and inconsistent. But with Chryst being a master at molding his signal callers and a dominant running game once again, the Badgers will find success whether it is Jon Budmayr, Curt Phillips or Joe Brennan lining up under Konz’s booty.Isaac Anderson, David Gilreath, Kyle Jefferson, Niles Brinkley, Jay Valai and Culmer St. Jean – Meh. There are suitable replacements for all of these players.The other part of the equation falls on Bret Bielema’s shoulders.Bielema struggled the first time after experiencing success, with his team lacking the leadership in the senior class to stay on top. It is doubtful that problem will repeat itself.The “1-0” maxim may make for amusing coach-speak jokes, but Bielema has done an excellent job branding the attitude on his program. Players do not look ahead, they don’t take any opponent lightly. Period.That attitude will be essential if Wisconsin is to make a return trip to Pasadena sometime before the next decade.The Badgers would seemingly have the talent and leadership to at least broach the consideration of back-to-back Rose Bowl trips.Whether they become a one-hit wonder or fixture in Wisconsin lore depends on the goal that supposedly consumed Montee Ball on the heels of the loss.He can’t be the only one who is left burning with desire.Michael Bleach (bleach.michael@gmail.com) is a senior majoring in Journalism.last_img read more

QuASA looks to expand their visibility on campus

first_imgThe University Student Government Senate held a meeting at the Ronald Tutor Campus Center on Tuesday night, which included presentations by USG University Affairs, Asian Pacific American Student Assembly, Diversity Affairs and the Queer and Ally Student Assembly, QuASA directors Robby Sachs and Alyssa Coffey discussed various events that the organization has held this past semester.These events include a Welcome Back Barbecue, Beyond Your Gay Straight Alliance, a beach bonfire, a dodgeball game and a freshman sleepover. Sachs and Coffey also discussed progress that has been made in new member organizations, such as Queers in Engineering, Science and Technology and the film group SCA Queer Cut.“I’m really excited about new member organizations,” Sachs said. “We’ve had a lot of momentum this year with the joining of different groups that I think are really underrepresented, and that can really bring a strong and diverse voice to the queer space on campus.”Coffey explained that though there have been improvements in increasing visibility for the queer community, there is more to work on.“I think there’s a lot of good potential and a lot of interesting things coming out of the queer community,” Coffey said. “But there’s a lot of more potential for visibility on campus. I think that over the past year, on-trend with national issues such as marriage equality, the queer community on campus has fallen back. However, there are also a lot more issues that groups on campus are becoming more active on and engaging with, so there’s a little burning fire that is going to kick up in the next few years.”QuASA directors also detailed upcoming events, which include a spirituality and sexuality retreat, a generation queer retreat and a second-chance prom for students who had a poor prom experience.Sachs explained that he is looking forward to the second-chance prom because it will bring the USC queer community together.“I’m glad that we have this event,” Sachs said. “It really is a second chance for freshmen to relive their prom, or for anyone really. But it’s also a celebration of the queer community at USC. It’s really cool to see to all these people turn out.”Furthermore, Sachs discussed the powerful impact the event would have on students who felt segregated from their peers in high school.“It’s a really important opportunity. I think prom is an important memory for people, especially if that memory is tainted with the problems of high school of not being out or not being who you really want to be,” Coffey said. “So having the chance to do it in college, where it’s a safer space for you, you can go with who you want, you can go how you want, you can wear what you want, you can be who you want to be, and that’s an important and liberating opportunity.”The Senate meeting also included presentions of new campus developments, such as the new Uber-Campus Cruiser partnership, the free LAX shuttle for students, Moreton Fig renovations, new water bottle filling stations, dorm renovations and a price cap for general education textbooks — a project that will require an intricate study of class syllabi and textbook pricing.“I think within a GE category you shouldn’t have to be choosing a course based on how much the materials cost, granted that science books are worth more than English books,” Director of University Affairs Jordan Fowler said.APASA, the second-largest student organization at USC with over 8,000 members, also discussed events they held during this semester. These events included a voter registration campaign, night market, APAHF extravaganza and a winter wonderland.Upcoming events include, Vote On, a USG presidential candidate forum, APASA’s Got Talent, Asian Pacific Film Week and a Little Taste of Tokyo Cultural Tour, among others.last_img read more
