Trio of signings make instant impact as Everton stun Spurs

first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win EPL: Son fires four past Southampton Everton’s impressive 1-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday was their first against them for eight years, but of greater significance was the impact of their new signings.Optimism was hardly high at the end of the last campaign as Everton finished down in 12th place. But it has returned in waves after Carlo Ancelotti signed a midfield trio that look capable of turning Everton into genuine contenders for a place in the top six.Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez, who burst into the limelight at the 2014 FIFA World Cup before signing for Real Madrid, was a major coup for Everton when he signed this week.His stock may have fallen in recent seasons but against Tottenham he looked a class act, pulling the strings and giving Everton the creativity they have been so badly lacking.French powerhouse midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure, signed from Watford this week, was a dominant presence in the middle of the pitch.Allan, a technical Brazilian, provided calm assurance in front of the back four. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, whose thumping header sealed the points, said the trio had given Everton an instant uplift and predicted there was much more to come.Ancelotti described his team’s performance as brilliant and picked out Rodriguez, a player he worked with at Real Madrid, for particular praise.“James is not the fastest player in the world but he has a lot of quality. We have to use him to show his quality. He is not a winger, but he can come inside and receive the ball. He is very dangerous,” Ancelotti said.“I am not worried about the physicality. If I was worried about that I would sign Usain Bolt, not James.”Everton fans have had to watch Liverpool take over as the force in English football, but after some stunning transfer business and a win against a bogey club, there is hope. “After a long time of suffering now the fans have to be happy. It was not easy in the past to win here and we won, it’s good to celebrate,” Ancelotti said.“We need continuity. Last season we were up and down and now we will see. This game tells us we can compete with anyone.”Reuters/NAN.Tags: Abdoulaye DoucoureCarlo AncelottiDominic Calvert-LewinEvertonJames RodriguezTottenham Hotspurlast_img read more

McGrath try helps seal Leinster win

first_img McFadden was left isolated as the visitors executed a two-on-one break and Kockott confidently knocked over the 40-metre conversion to close the gap to 9-7. Gopperth missed a penalty effort before half-time and Castres, with replacement prop Saimone Taumoepeau making an impact up front, restarted in fine fettle. Full-back Brice Dulin gathered his own chip and had to be hauled down in the Leinster 22, and Tales’ dinked kick just went over the end line as Geoffrey Palis chased it down. The addition of Karena Wihongi further boosted the Castres scrum and their dominance of the third quarter should have led to points, but Kockott sent a long range penalty wide. Leinster relieved the pressure as Luke Fitzgerald and David Kearney got ball in hand, the latter being the victim of a ‘no arms’ tackle from Lamerat that saw the Castres centre sin-binned. Fourteen-man Castres showed no signs of wilting, but a tenacious turnover from replacement Eoin Reddan launched Leinster forward and needed no second invitation. McFadden drew a defender to release David Kearney on the left and his brother Rob got involved in the Castres 22, before McGrath broke Wihongi’s initial tackle and crashed over beside the right hand post. Gopperth’s conversion gave Leinster some much needed breathing space at nine points up, and the man-of-the-match completed his 14-point tally as Matt O’Connor’s men remained workmanlike – if unspectacular – until the end. They needed to be resolute in defence late on as despite losing Tomas in the 70th minute, Castres almost landed a losing bonus point with TMO Graham Hughes ruling out a lunge at the line from Pedrie Wannenburg who was adjudged to be inches short. Traditionally poor travellers in this tournament, the reigning French Top 14 champions leaked three penalties to Jimmy Gopperth before a converted try from Rory Kockott gave them a shot in the arm before the interval. But Castres crucially failed to turn pressure into points in the third quarter and with centre Remi Lamerat in the sin-bin, McGrath wrestled free to grab the game’s decisive score in the 62nd minute. Jack McGrath’s first Heineken Cup try lifted Leinster to their second pool win as they beat a bruising Castres Olympique side 19-7 at the RDS. Gopperth converted and tagged on a fourth penalty and frustrated Castres suffered a second sin-binning in the closing stages – replacement scrum half Julien Tomas saw yellow for a succession of crooked feeds. Led out by Fergus McFadden and Kevin McLaughlin on their 100th appearances, Leinster quickly set about testing the French side’s defence. There was a welcome blast of sunshine for the kick-off, replacing the earlier heavy rain, and Gopperth capped off a similarly bright opening for his side with a third minute penalty. Rob Kearney did well to hack on a Gopperth cross-field kick before Castres broke from deep, Kockott and centres Remi Lamerat and Romain Cabannes all featuring in a rare free-flowing attack from the French outfit. But, for the most part, Leinster controlled the opening half hour’s play and an offside decision allowed Gopperth to make it 6-0 in the 12th minute. The New Zealander’s third successful penalty rewarded a solid home scrum which included young tighthead Martin Moore, and Kockott snatched badly at his first chance to respond. However, the hosts were unable to make the most of a typically thunderous burst from Sean O’Brien, and a couple of midfield turnovers that followed. Castres made them pay with an opportunist try from Kockott in the 33rd minute, the scrum-half streaking away down the blindside after a wheeling scrum and a well-timed feed from Antonie Claassen.

Pochettino planning to strengthen

first_imgTottenham’s timid display at Leicester highlighted their need to bring in reinforcements and manager Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful of concluding a deal next week. Up until the moment Nacer Chadli clipped in a lovely curling cross for substitute Dele Alli to head home in the 81st minute, Spurs were hugely disappointing at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. Pochettino’s side were pedestrian, ponderous, leggy and uninspiring in the final third. Indeed, for long periods, they were lacklustre in the extreme. Harry Kane, Tottenham’s top scorer last season with 32 goals in all competitions, cut a frustrated figure as a lone striker as he still searches for his first goal of the campaign. Despite being just three games into the new Barclays Premier League season, it is clear Kane needs help. So far he has been a shadow of the striker who burst on to the scene around 12 months ago. West Brom forward Saido Berahino, left out of the Albion squad against Chelsea on Sunday because he was not in the right frame of mind to play, is expected to be the subject of a second bid by Tottenham and he would bring some much-needed pace to the Spurs forward line. Pochettino, who was pleased with how Kane played at Leicester, would not be drawn on his interest in any specific targets but revealed he does hope to add to his squad before the transfer window closes. “(Kane) worked really hard and I am happy with his performance,” the Argentinian said after the 1-1 draw. “He played with (Erik) Lamela and Chadli and then with Dele Alli to help him but I thought it was a good performance.” Asked if he thought Kane had looked isolated against Leicester, Pochettino replied: “No, no because you can see he had some chances. He played with Chadli, Lamela, and then with Dele Alli on the pitch I think we created some more chances. “We are looking (for new players). I think we always need to have the balance of the squad and we have some targets and maybe in the next few days we can help the team a little bit more.” Press Association Meanwhile, Pochettino said Clinton Njie could be available to make his debut against Everton next week. “He was in France for his work permit and maybe next week he will be available. First, he needs to train more with the group,” he added. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri praised his side’s character following their instant response to falling behind against Spurs. There were just 25 seconds between Alli’s headed opener and Riyad Mahrez’s lovely curled, left-foot finish. “I was very satisfied with the way we reacted to conceding,” said Ranieri. “Against good teams, one mistake can lead to a goal and we were disappointed when Tottenham scored. We needed to respond. “Our fans were fantastic, they supported the players and in 25 seconds Riyad scored again.” The draw left Leicester top of the table ahead of the Sunday and Monday fixtures, but Ranieri insisted the club’s target is still to ensure their Premier League status for another season. “It’s not important for us to be top of the league,” said the Italian. “It’s important to have seven points and to look to achieve the 40 points very soon. “This is our first target and we must achieve this very early.” last_img read more

USC welcomes lacrosse to the big stage

first_imgLooking through the crowd, one could tell this was more than just a game.  University president C. L. Max Nikias was there. Athletic director Pat Haden was there. Even USC head football coach Lane Kiffin was there, albeit sitting alone on the opposite side of the Coliseum. But, more importantly, 2,887 other fans were also in attendance on a brisk Saturday afternoon to watch the first-ever NCAA match for USC’s women’s lacrosse, the school’s newest varsity sport.Breaking ground · Freshman midfielder Amanda Johansen scored two goals on Saturday, including the first ever for USC’s newest program. The Women of Troy fell in their opening match by a final score of 18-5. – William Ehart | Daily TrojanThe Trojans fell 18-5 to the No. 1 Northwestern Wildcats, the reigning champions and winners of seven of the last eight NCAA titles, but the excitement of finally making their program debut outweighed the sting of the loss.“It was just an awesome feeling,” said freshman midfielder Amanda Johansen, who scored the first goal in program history 12 minutes into the first of two 30-minutes halves. “We’ve been working so hard for this, and to have [everyone] just cheering at the same time felt so awesome.”The matchup was a reunion of sorts for USC head coach Lindsey Munday and offensive coordinator Hillary Bowen, who both starred at Northwestern under Wildcats head coaching legend Kelli Amonte Hiller.Some were perplexed as to why  USC scheduled to play against the best squad in the nation for their program debut, but Munday is taking a “watch and learn” approach.“It shows [USC’s players] what the top of women’s lacrosse is right now, and I think that’s a great thing that’s going to prepare us for our conference,” Munday said. “It’s going to help us because you can’t get away with anything.”On the Coliseum field, the Women of Troy were outmatched from the start. The Wildcats jumped to a quick 4-0 lead, then a 9-1 advantage by dominating face-offs and outshooting USC 47-9 for the game.USC’s flashiest goal was its second, as Johansen found herself behind the goal before lobbing the ball to freshman midfielder Paige Bonomi to reduce the deficit to 9-2.“I tried taking a step back and seeing how the whole field would look and, right when I took a step back, I saw somebody wide open in the middle,” Johansen said. “I just hit Paige [Bonomi], and I know she can finish everything.”The addition of a women’s lacrosse program at USC was one of Nikias’ first initiatives after being inaugurated in August 2010. Munday was hired away from her assistant position at Northwestern in January 2011, and wasted no time getting to work, with her and her coaching staff recruiting up and down the East Coast for players interested in being part of a program different from the traditional eastern powerhouses.  Eleven of the team’s 17 recruits in the class of 2012 hail from the lacrosse hotbeds of New York or New Jersey.“We can never replicate this,” Munday said. “These 26 players will go down in history.”The most refreshing part of Munday and her young squad is their unconcealed championship aspirations.“It’s something that is there for us, and we are not scared to go out there and say it,” Munday said about winning a national title. “We know that there’s a lot of work to be done and that there’s a long journey to get there, but that is our goal. We have to put it out there.”The Trojans might not be championship contenders this year or the next, but with 17 of the team’s 26 players being freshmen, most of this team will play four years together and carry the program along with them.“We walk around on campus and have people cheering for us,” Johansen said. “It’s really nice bringing over the whole sport with this team and showing people in California, who’ve never seen it, how lacrosse really is.”last_img read more
