Doncaster to be transformed by French and Saunders

Written by admin on March 31, 2018 Categories: xvzbgfjq Tags: , ,

John Ryan has revealed how his controversial plan to transform Doncaster Rovers from relegation candidates to play-off prospects all rests on the French and Saunders. Multi-millionaire Ryan, the Donny chairman, has charged top football agent Willie McKay with the task of tapping into his vast list of clients playing in France and recommending them to Keepmoat boss Dean Saunders. Former Livercontent_imgpool and Wales striker Saunders must then decide whether they are worth hiring on short-term deals as Donny battle to cling on to their Championship status. Ryan’s critics have accused him of playing Russian Roulette with the Yorkshire club’s future by wanting to hire ­mercenaries who care nothing about Rovers. Ryan admitted to Sunday Mirror Sport: “It is a gamble, but it’s one we believe can pay off. This is our best option of taking us to where we ultimately want to be. The fact is we cannot afford to go out and buy home-based players to take us to League opponents Chelsea tomorrow.Chelsea host the Dutch, having previously won in Amsterdam.”We didn’takim Ziyech will inspire his young players.The midfielder will join in the summer from Ajax.”Top clubs will always be looking to improve,” said Lampard. “That will be a challenge that’s laid down in front of the young players and one they just have t play well enough at the time. We have to play better tomorrow and in the final phase we gave away too much,” recalled Veltman to AD.”They’re just the higher reaches of the Championship because, when you operate on a fan base of 7,000-8,000, they are too expensive. “We have to look elsewhere, and that’s where Willie comes in. He is a lifelong friend who lives in ­Doncaster and has his two sons as young players in our Academy. “I asked him to help us out and, because of his feelings for this club, he readily agreed – all for the princely sum of £100-a-week!. “That’s all we are paying him for trying to bring in some top talent from abroad.” Ryan is convinced his blueprint for success will pay-off. He explained: “Willie is in charge of transfer dealings, but every bit of business we do in that respect is with the manager’s complete blessing. If Deano doesn’t fancy any of the players recommended to him, then there is no deal. “What we are trying to do is blend together the quality players we already have here to those ­suggested by Willie and wanted by Dean. “By doing that, we believe we will assemble a side to get us out of the bottom three, up the table and ­attacking the play-off places.”

Jermain Defoe thriving under pressure at Sunderland as his fourth goal fires Black Cats closer to safety

Pressure. It decides so much in football yet is the one factor that refuses to bow to the analysis that now so dominates the game. No statistician or scientist can predict who will thrive or crack because of it. Yet it is the one quality you want to be certain of in a player. Which is where comes in. Much, rightly, has been made of Danny Graham’s first goal for Sunderland since signing for them two and a half years ago – it was worth the wait, even if he was trying to get out of the way. Yet if the Black Cats survive, it will likely be down to Defoe’s ability to thrive under the ­pressure of having to deliver goals – something he points out he has been doing throughout his career. “It’s pressure but it’s good pressure. If you love playing football and love scoring goals then just go out there, try your best and just enjoy it,” he said after this huge victory over Everton. In pictures – Everton 0-2 Sunderland: “It’s a lot of pressure because we’re scrapping for results and it’s not easy, but I’m 32, I think people know now what I bring to a club. “It was just a case of trying to do what I’content_imgve done throughout my career and that’s work hard and get myself in the areas red he wants Willian secured to a new deal.The 31 year-old’s current contract expires in June.Although unwilling to discuss the finer details of contract discussions, Lampard made his stance on Willian’s future perfectly clear.”I can’t get involved ito score. “Most importantly it’s to do it in the big games, the games you know you have to turn up and try and make something happen.” He does that all right. The winning goal against Newcastle which could keep his side up and send their rivals down is ­testimony to that, and his poacher’s strike here, to confirm such a massive victory when Everton seemed certain to level, confirmed it. It was a scrappy goal, though not as scrappy as the one with which Graham opened the scoring, when he inadvertently diverted Jorare standing by vice-chairman Ed Woodward as he insists Paul Pogba is not for sale.Pogba sparked fresh uncertainty over his future on Sunday. He told reporters in Tokyo: “I am thinking of this: To have a new challenge somewhere else. After this seasodi Gomez’s tame shot past Tim Howard. Yet it proved his instinct of being in the perfect place at the right time. His four goals since arriving at the Stadium of Light may well be the difference between survival and oblivion. If Newcastle had him, they surely would not be staring down the barrel. And they are, because of doubts they can find a win, while Leicester, Villa and even Hull still have real fight about them. showed here they certainly do. – and an ability to score important goals. “The pressure surrounding us in these games is massive, but it’s great credit to everyone at the club that we’ve handled it – and two wins on the bounce transfers that pressure onto our rivals now,” said Defoe. With the pressure off, Everton seem to have turned their minds to the beach, even if James ­McCarthy hit a post and Costel Pantilimon had to pull off fine first-halves saves from Romelu Lukaku and Leon Osman. They have had a strange season, showing flashes of the form of a year ago, but also the weaknesses that have developed under Roberto Martinez, who will need a good summer if he is to turn them into a top-six side again. Will Defoe be a Sunderland player next season?500+ VOTES SO FAR

Thomas Ince interview: England U21 flops’ hunger can’t be criticised – and I don’t even HAVE a tattoo

Written by admin on  Categories: coxzibty Tags: , ,

Try telling Thomas Ince he lacks hunger. Try telling the Blackpool winger he’d rather focus on tattoos than tactics. Ince is as frustrated as everyone else by his from the European Under-21 Championship currently being played in Israel. But the 21-year-old son of former England captain Paul was bemused to hear his – and his team-mates’ – desire being questioned. “I left the reserves at Liverpool to play first-team football on loan at Notts County.” said Ince junior, recently voted the Championship's Player of the Year. “I went to play alongside grown men who played week in, week out to put food on the table for their families and all the rest of it. “After I’d had that four- or five-month loan spell there I went back to Liverpool, I sat down with my Dad and I said: ‘Do you know what? I need more of that.’ “I don’t think that’s a lack of desire. I had the odd occasion where I would go up to Melwood and train with Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher. I could have signed an extended three-year contract, stayed at Liverpool and not played. “But I wanted to work hard. I wanted to go out and play. At that point, Ian Holloway, the Blackpool manager at the time, gave me the chance to express myself and I took it. I will always be grateful for that.” As for caring more about tattoos, Ince smiled: “I don’t have one! I think if I had a tattoo, my dad would probably kill me!” after losing to Italy, Norway and even hosts Israel, while scoring just one goal – a penalty – in the process. The poor showing has led to a widespread belief that the players have been hyped up far too soon. But Ince continued: “I don’t think it’s a case of us telling ourselves we are this and that. It was just the case that we didn’t turn up. “We would be the first players to hold our hands up, but as far as people questioning the hunger and the desire to play in a major tournament and win it… no, I don’t thinkcontent_img that’s the case at all. “Look at the campaign that this England Under-21 side has gone through over the last two years to actually get to the Euros – we won nearly every game and we didn’t concede that many goals. “It's very difficult for certain players. “Look at the likes of Wilfried Zaha, who has had a very long season. He went to the Play-Off Final with Crystal Palace then comes to the Euros. “Look at Danny Rose, who had a tough season at Sunderland [on loan from Spurs], who were fighting relegation. “I wouldn’t say it’s down to tiredness, but it has been a long season for a lot of the players. Then factor in the travelling and the fact that the games come so quickly. “Maybe we were not ready for all of that. I don’t know. “All we can do is reflect on it and say that we need to do a lot better. Every single playertici admits they’re in swap talks with Barcelona.Juve are chasing a deal for Barca B striker Alejandro Marques and are willing to send Brazilian midfielder Matheus Pereira in the opposite direction.Paratici said, “We are talking with Barcelona of two knows that.” Pearce’s position has been called into question, and talks with the FA are planned. But Ince has backed him to stay in his job. He went on: “I’ve only had seven caps for the Under-21s. “It was only really late on that I managed to work with him. But being an ex-player himself – and a good one – it is great to be under his management and I know a lot of the young players in the squad would want to be under his management again.” It says a great deal for the Tangerines’ wideman that he has stepped out of the shadow of his father and is seen as a rising star in his own right. His 18 goals, combined with his consistent performances, saw him voted Championship Young Player of the Year for the 2012-2013 campaign. He is now expected to move to the Premier League, and is being linked with Liverpool (the club he left to join Blackpool, Tottenham, Crystal Palace,Cardiff and Swansea. He went on: “I am going to go on holiday. When I get back in a few weeks, I’ll sit down with my dad and the chairman and go from there. “If I am still a Blackpool player next season I will give 110 per cent – more than I did last season. I’ll be trying to get Blackpool back to where they should be – challenging at the top end of the division. “If not, and I move on, then I have to make sure it’s the right club for me and the right time to go. Me and my dad have always said that it’s about timing, making sure I am taking the right step and not ending up at a tr Watford.Silva has explained his thinking behind the late introduction of Moise Kean and also said that though Jean-Philippe Gbamin showed improvements, he still suffered with “problems again”.Explaining the decision to bring off Dominic Calvert-Leweam where you’re not going to play in the majority of games. “I don’t expect, at 21, to play week-in, week-out at any Premier League club.

Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini reveals he voted for Jose Mourinho in LMA Manager of the Year award

Manuel Pellegrini has voted for Jose Mourinho in the LMA’s annual Manager of the Year poll. was not recognised by his peers last season afterewcastle United attacker Lomano LuaLua admits he would puncture Sir Bobby Robson’s tyres after learning he wasn’t selected.While appearing on Sky Sports’ Soccer AM on Saturday morning, LuaLua revealed he used to puncture the former England and Barcel leading the Blues to the Premier League title and Capital One Cup in his first campaign in English football. It is a domestic double that has been emulated by Mourinho at Chelsea this term. Pellegrini insists he isn’t angry about his own snub 12 months ago – but he has put aside his bitter rivalry with Mourinho to vote for him. Pellegrini said: “I am a member of the LMA and I voted for Mourinho because I know what he has achieved is very good. “I can’t explain what happened last year, so I don’t think about it too much. I don’t think my opinion is very important. “I wasn’t chosen as the best manager, but I was very happy about what I did last season because we won two titles and we won them playing beautiful football and scoring lots of goals. “I don’t know how the decision can be made, but if they choose another manager that is the choice.” City have been the most consistent team in Cagliari.Proto steps in for the injured Thomas Strakosha.“I am very proud for my family, because I came to Italy to play, while my ancestors left here to work,” he told Lazio Style Channel.“I have the opportunity to play in Serie A and at the agethe country over the last five seasons, winning two titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup. But they always miss out when it comes to the individual awards. But, unlike , the City boss does not adhere to any conspiracy theories. He added: “Before me, Roberto Mancini also won the title, but he wasn’t manager of the year. In pictures – West Brom 3-0 Chelsea: “content_imgLast year, Yaya Toure scored many goals but wasn’t player of the year. This year, Sergio Aguero is the top scorer but he isn’t the player of the year. “This isn’t my opinion, it is fact. I am not saying there is a conspiracy. Other people must analyse why this has happened.” Pellegrini is confident he will be in charge at the Etihad next season despite being given no assurances by the club. He said: “Maybe on Monday I might be sacked. In football, I have learned that all things can happen. My opinion is that I will still be here next season, but others can have a different opinion. “But if you ask me if I think I am out, I say ‘no’. “When I was manager of Real Madrid, I remember reading after three games that I would be sacked – even though we had won all three games! “I think that the project here is different to Madrid because the history of the club is different. The way the owner of thinks isn’t the same as the way the president of Real Madrid thinks. “But that doesn’t mean that the manager here can’t be sacked.” City fans!

Opinion: Jose Mourinho’s cheating Chelsea ‘killed football’ to triumph against Liverpool

It was fascinating to sit in to hear the Specious One justify the tactics which offered him He poured scorn on the journalists present in a variety of ways as he applauded Chelsea's defensive masterclass, and even bizarrely brought laughter as he wished ill health on all present, when there seemed little humour intended. His face narrowed though, when I asked him had he any regrets about his d wonderkid has been pictured in a Manchester United shirt for the first time this Saturday in a video posted to his Instagram page.The Dutch youngster rejected professional terms with Ajax this season, which was confirmed by the head of the club’s yside's need to keep the ball out of play for such long periods of the game. There was no answer, merely a dip of the head and a muttered suggestion I was "sad". He's right too. I am sad. Or rather, saddened (though clearly a case can be made for the former). Saddened by the fact a club with Chelsea's resources felt the only way they could win such a high profile contest that showcased the English game throughout the world was by cheating. And it was cheating, because the time-wasting antics they produced from the very first minute were against both the rules and the spirit of the game. Under law 12.28.4 the offence is deemed misconduct and punishable with a booking following a warning. Referee Martin Atkinson used this law to book Ashley Cole in the 92nd minute. Law 16 also covers the misconduct, and gives the referee the option to punish the offence at any time in the match. In the first minute of the game, Mark Schwarzer kept the ball from the field of play for 35 seconds. He should have been warned for such misconduct – also known as breaking the laws of the game, or cheating. In the first 10 minutes of the game, kept the ball off the pitch for more than four minutes. The referee didn't warn a single player over the misconduct, and added only three minutes at the end of the first half. So he allowed Chelsea to cheat, and they did so magnificently. Their game plan was obvious too – the stats show Liverpool score early, and Mourinho clearly felt the best way to stop them from doing that was to keep the ball from being in play. You can't score when the ball isn't on the pitch. It is terribly sad isn't captain Jordan Henderson is impressed with how the team have overcome obstacles over the course of the season.The Reds are unbeaten in the Premier League and have only dropped two domestic points all term.But Henderson does not think it has been anyit? Chelsea spent £35million alone in January on two players, and another near 80m last summer. That`s more than £100million since Mourinho returned, and his tactic to win football matches is to keep the ball from being in play. It is not only sad, but depressing. The moment when he grabbed the ball and refused to give it to Steven Gerrard, leaving the pair to launch into an unseemly tussle on the touchline, summed so painfully all that is wrong with football. To see a manager of such standing fighting to stop the ball being in play is not farce, but tragedy. There have been times when I have watched Spanish football on Sky and been forced to turn over, because the cheating has got so extreme, it renders the game unwatchable. The comfort has always lied in the thought that the Premier League, with its emphasis on pace and power, would never turn viewers away. How many were bored senseless though, by Chelsea's cheating on Sunday, or against Atletico in midweek for that matter? I turned over on Wednesday, I have to admit, because it was horrible. At Anfield, it wasn't even anti-football, it wasn't football at all, because the ball was kept deliberately out of play for such long periods. By a team that cost hundreds of millions of pounds, and can boast some of the most exciting, talented footballers in the world. Not that Mourinho is solely to blame. Referee Atkinson must shoulder the responsibility too, for reducing a spectacle to a painful experience. As he proved in the 93rd minute, he was within his rights to book players, and had he interpreted the laws of the game correctly, we would have had a very different contest. What he seemed incapable of realising, was that Chelsea weren't wasting time, as such, they were trying to break up content_imgthe rhythm of the contest, and upset Liverpool's momentum. By cheating. By simply looking at his watch and adding token minutes at the end of the half, he didn't punish the cheating or deter Mourinho from his gameplan. In fact, he helped it, because Chelsea scored their all important goal in that paltry stoppage time. Liverpool must also take some serious criticism too, because they were guilty of letting Mourinho's cynical tactic triumph. They lost their heads. They were frustrated by the cheating, and reacted with an increasing lack of control. As the fans got angrier and angrier, the players followed suit, and charged into an increasing frenzy. Yet here`s the thing. Liverpool only needed a draw. Every minute Chelsea wasted, every single time the ball was kept off the pitch in the first half, actually helped Liverpool get closer to their objective. They could have let Chelsea waste all 90 minutes, said thank you very much and taken the 0-0… and still have the title destiny in their own hands. Instead, they completely lost sight of their objectives, got emotional over the opposition cynicism, and fell into Mourinho's trap. Naively. Some would say lamentably. Yes, they were the only team trying to play football, but they could now lose the title because they lost sight of their simple objective. If Chelsea wanted a 0-0, give it to them. Don`t criminally lose you head and blow your title chances. Let's get this straight too. Chelsea also defended magnificently, and deserve immense credit for that. They have some fine defensive players, Ivanovic was incredible, and young Kalas was superb under such pressure. But by cheating from the first minute, and denying the paying spectators and watching TV millions the simple right of seeing the ball in play, they killed football. And that`s the worrying thing. You can admire defensive football for its physical and mental qualities, but we should never admire gamesmanship and cheating – especially when it destroys the art and spectacle of the game. Because then we don`t have a game. Fifa take note. One final, sobering thought for those Mourinho acolytes who defend him and his excruciating tactics. Hasn't Roman Abramovich sacked a succession of managers because he has given them hundreds of millions to spend on buying fantasy football players, only for them to produce the mundane? If I were Mourinho, I would be slightly concerned that I have spent more than 100 million on a team in six months, and the best I could come up with against a side that plays with imagination and fantasy, is to stop them scoring by keeping the ball from being in play. if Abramovich was watching, I suspect he would share that concern. Have Liverpool thrown away the title following their slip-up against Chelsea?1000+ VOTES SO FAR

Wolves 2-3 Bolton: Sunday Mirror match report

Even Mick McCarthy had insisted this was must-win for his old No. 2 Terry Connor, so the prospect of Wolves booking a fourth successive season at the top table is susea, Eden Hazard hopes he can deliver a trophy.The Belgian international will lead the Blues in Wednesday night’s Europa League final against Arsenal in Baku.He has been linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer, and the 28-year-old hopes he can rely doomed. The sacking of McCarthy looked daft in February but is appearing even more ridiculous now after Connor was condemned to a fifth successive defeat to stay rooted to the bottom of the Premier League. Connor has only one point from six games since being thrust into the front line and if this damaging defeat wasn’t enough, he also had to watch his own players fighting each other. Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and Roger Johnson – who was fined last month for turning up to training under the influence of alcohol – were pulled apart by team-mates after a furious row to complete another miserable experience in the dug-out for McCarthy’s replacement. Bolton, buoyed by the continuing recovery of Fabrice Muamba, securecontent_imgd their third successive league win for the first time since December 2006 and displayed all the fighting spirit that was sadly lacking in their opponents. The hands of relegation were clawing away at the throats of Wolves’ players long before Steve Morgan slammed his fist down on the panic button last month. Wolves have been feeling the icy chill of the relegation trapdoor for most of the season, and the decision to appoint Connor – a highly-rated coach but, crucially, someone who has never managed – is looking increasingly poor. Now they are facing the prospect of their towering Stan Cullis Stand being constructed in time for the visit of Barnsley and Burnley next season. Even McCarthy had insisted this was must-win in a typically blunt radiointerview before the game and the stakes were clearly high in a frenzied opening. The hosts dominated the early stages, with Bolton keeper Adam Bodgan producing an excellent save to deny Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, while Matt Jarvis and Michael Kightly were given far too much freedom to cause havoc on the wings. Bolton could have been blown away but gradually gained a foothold and Klasnic’s sliced drive set off the astonishing showdown between Hennessey and Johnson. Hennessey was clearly furious Johnson failed to win the header in the build-up to Klasnic’s miss and raced over to confront the defender before the pair were pulled apart by Kightly. Yet they still had chances or, rather, Fletcher did. His header was scuffed off the line by Ryo Miyaichi before wastefully nodding a Kightly cross onto the top of the bar. However, Wolves finally made their pressure tell shortly after that scare when Kightly advanced towards the area before bending an exquisite shot past Bodgan. But former Wolves trainee Mark Davies danced into the area on 62 minutes to force Johnson into a rashed the permanent signing of Josh Onomah from Tottenham Hotspur.The 22-year-old arrives at Fulham as part of the deal that has seen Ryan Sessegnon join Spurs.Onomah has agreed a three-year contract, with a Club option for a further 12 months.After put challenge, and Bolton were level through Martin Petrov. The Bulgarian winger ran half the length of the pitch to make apersonal message to a TV camera, with his shirt bearing the words ‘Stay strong Stan’, a tribute to his pal Stiliyan at Villa. There was only going to be one winner after that. Bolton smelt it in their nostrils and Marcos Alonso pounced from close range after David Ngog’s header came back off the bar. Kevin Davies, a substitute, was given an embarrassing amount of room to add a third before Matt Jarvis set up a grandstand finish with a well-taken goal for the hosts. It was too late, though – and badly timed just like the dismissal of McCarthy.
