Yorke: I was top scorer Ferguson still demanded more from me

first_img However, Sir Alex, a man renowned for his meticulously high standards, demanded more from Dwight, and was willing to try anything to further motivate his frontman. “In the first season I scored 29 goals, in the second year I scored 26, and the gaffer said to me ‘you’re a failure’,” Yorke reflected on the video call. “I was top scorer again and we won the Premier League, but he said I was a failure. But you look back and I get where he was coming from. This is where you need to push yourself even further by getting more than 29. “You look at Messi and Ronaldo and that’s the kind of levels he’s trying to push you to, but I didn’t see it then. Finishing as the top scorer with 26 goals was very rewarding for me, but the gaffer wasn’t too pleased. “Then in my third year, I had 14 goals from 22 starts, which is not a bad return. But that wasn’t good enough at United. That was the level the manager was demanding of you and I get it now.” Yorkie is most fondly remembered by United fans for the part he played in our Treble-winning campaign, a season when he and striker partner Andy Cole struck fear into the hearts of defenders at home and abroad. Dwight netted 29 times in 51 appearances during his maiden term at the Reds but was actually disappointed with that haul.

I was disappointed I only scored 29 goals, even though that was unbelievable in my first year,” Yorke told presenter Stewart Gardner and regular hosts Ben Thornley, Wes Brown, Danny Webber, and David May. “I think the manager robbed me of a few games when I felt I should have played and could have scored goals,” Yorke added, with a chuckle. “He substituted me when I was on the verge of scoring a hat-trick. I was on two goals and he takes me off to have a rest! You look back and think ‘bloody hell, gaffer, you robbed me of a few goals over the years’.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “But it’s not about me, it’s about the team and he knows what is best for us as a unit and that’s what matters. “When you achieve that kind of level in your first year, where do you go from there?

But I have no regrets over those years.

Jones to pay for damaging Whelan’s car

first_img Jones revealed he had spoken to team-mates on Saturday, including Whelan, after he found a pig’s head wrapped in his clothes at the club’s training ground on Friday. The 28-year-old reacted by smashing Whelan’s windscreen, but he was left to apologise and offer to pay for the damage after the Republic of Ireland international insisted he was not involved in the prank. Addressing the issue on his Twitter page, Jones wrote: “First off for all the people saying this had anything to with racism I’m not endorsing that. Secondly i’ve apologised to glen Whelan for the destruction of his property.” Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones has apologised to team-mate Glenn Whelan after smashing his car windscreen in a mistaken act of retribution for a training-ground prank which went wrong. He added: “For all the people that think that the pigs head wrapped in my clothes was banter great so is the broken window. “As far as tension in the squad there’s nun (sic) myself and whelan had our thrash out and he said it wasnt him so I apologised n im paying for it. “As for the person who did it no one has come fwd n apologised to me so I guess the joke was gd then. “But as I said if you have the belly to take banter to that level be willing to accept the reaction. Thats final no more comments.” Stoke revealed on Friday they will investigate the matter but they are yet to make a statement as to whether any player will be punished for the incident, which came ahead of their final game at Southampton on Sunday, with Jones revealing the culprit was still yet to come forward. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

NCAA members, Atlanta mayor announce start of Final Four

first_imgATLANTA — The press conference announcing the final stretch of an event called March Madness was much more low key than its name would suggest.High-ranking members of the NCAA, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, U.S. Ambassador for the United Nations Andrew Young and others who helped bring the Final Four to Atlanta spoke to a crowd of about 50 people, most of who were with the media, at 3 p.m. Thursday in the Georgia World Congress Center. Syracuse plays Michigan on Saturday at 8:49 p.m. in the Georgia Dome for a chance to advance to the national championship.“We’re going to have some of the best college basketball in the United States of America over the next few days,” Reed said. “I couldn’t be more excited.”People who spoke at the press conference discussed what the event means to the city in the short and long term, as well as charitable efforts related to the Final Four.After thanking the NCAA and partners such as the Georgia Institute of Technology and Coca-Cola Co., Reed talked about the economic effects of the Final Four for the city. Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson and John Rutledge, vice president of market unit sales operations for Coca-Cola, addressed the crowd before Reed.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textReed said more than 100,000 people are expected to travel to Atlanta for the Final Four games, which is expected to generate $70 million in economic activity for places such as hotels and restaurants.“This tournament brings energy and excitement,” he said. “And you can feel it when you go outside.”Earlier in the press conference, Dan Gavitt, vice president of men’s basketball championships for the NCAA, talked about the significance of holding the 75th NCAA Tournament in Atlanta. This year also marks the first time the Division-II and Division-III championship games are being played in the same city.Gavitt said 7,500 pairs of shoes and 2,500 food boxes will be distributed to people in need throughout Atlanta with the help of local groups. The NCAA will work with another group to refurbish a local community center, he said.“We, along with the local organizing committee at the NCAA, are excited to leave a lasting legacy here in Atlanta through a number of initiatives,” he said.Young, the U.S. ambassador for the U.N. and a civil rights activist, was the last person to speak at the conference. He spoke freely, not reading from a prepared speech.Young spoke about the role of sports in society, which he said extends “far beyond that which anything anybody could imagine.” He cited the ability for a table tennis match to change foreign policy, and then joked that if the North Koreans played basketball, problems could be solved very quickly.Another example of the effect of sports in society he provided was with the civil rights movement, saying Martin Luther King Jr. “grew up” in the Butler Street YMCA.“Even in our movement, and particularly as we went around the country trying to organize young people for nonviolent activities, we found that the only way you could catch up with them was quite often on a basketball court,” Young said. “And they wouldn’t listen to you until you got in the game with them.”He ended the conference by going back to the positive effects the tournament will have on the city.Said Young: “Here for the next few days, the world will be focused on Atlanta, as much as it has, I think, since the Olympics in 1996.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 5, 2013 at 1:46 am Contact Dylan: | @dylan_segelbaumlast_img read more

Syracuse looks to limit turnovers heading into ACC tournament

first_imgBefore every game, Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman writes a list of goals for his team on the chalkboard in the locker room.Forty percent from the field. Twenty offensive rebounds. No one-and-ones.The last is most important.Fewer than 12 turnovers for the whole game.“It’s huge, because if you don’t get shots, if you don’t get possessions, then you can’t score,” Hillsman said. “Our goal at the beginning of the year, our motto was, ‘Get a shot every time.’”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlthough Syracuse has committed 14.3 turnovers per game this season, it’s averaged just 8.5 over the last four games. While protecting the ball has been a problem for the Orange for long stretches this season, that has subsided at the right time.Syracuse (21-8, 10-6 Atlantic Coast) will need to continue the trend when it begins the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C., this weekend. SU plays its first game Thursday at 11 a.m. against Clemson (13-18, 4-12), and needs to win four games in four days to win the conference championship.“We don’t really think, ‘Oh we can’t turn the ball over.’ It’s more of a habit of, ‘We can’t give the ball to this team,’” sophomore guard Brittney Sykes said. “We realize that those turnovers are unnecessary and they can lose us games, and right now you don’t want to lose games.”Before the Orange went on this clean stretch of play, giving up extra possessions was a huge problem.It averaged 19.2 turnovers in a five-game stretch, culminating in a 24-turnover performance against No. 2 Notre Dame on Feb. 9 in which SU lost by 37.Sykes said Syracuse was turning the ball over without too much pressure from the defense, which made it change up its approach.“We were turning the ball over on top of them turning us over,” Sykes said. “You can control your team, the other team can’t. You can control where the ball goes, where to pass it to.”One root of the turnover struggles was that Syracuse likes to play a fast-paced game and get out in transition. It’s been a theme for the Orange all season. But while fast-paced play often leads to sloppy play, the Orange showed flashes of brilliance.Against Clemson on Jan. 23, an 18-0 run powered a second-half comeback. Three days later, it was another 18-0 run that turned a seven-point deficit into an 11-point lead against Virginia.Those runs are what Sykes calls “fast and clean” basketball, and it’s something Syracuse has done a lot of in the past two weeks — scoring, pressing and not giving the ball up.“Some people may look at you and think, ‘What do you mean fast and clean?” Sykes said. “ You can play fast, but you still have to think and know, ‘OK, if the ball’s going here, who’s open?’ You’ve got to think fast and you have to think clean basketball.“If we keep doing that, it’s easy money for us.”Senior point guard Rachel Coffey said the key for Syracuse, whether it’s playing fast or not, is to remain patient, something that she believes her team has done a good job of recently.“We just know we have to play our game,” Coffey said. “We can’t force things. When we force things, that’s when we get out of our game.”Hillsman said there’s no reason for his team to force things, and no reason that his team can’t run and play clean basketball.He’s seen it all season. And with the stretch run of one of the best seasons in Hillsman’s tenure coming up, he still only emphasizes one goal when his team takes the court.“Get down the court,” Hillsman said. “And get a shot every possession. It’s not a big coaching strategy. It’s just about emphasizing what you want.” Comments Published on March 6, 2014 at 12:00 am Contact Sam: | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

LA Lakers’ Byron Scott to field same starting lineup in second preseason game vs. Utah

first_imgHONOLULU >> The lineup combinations remain fluid. It likely will stay that way until the training camp concludes at the end of October.Yet, Lakers coach Byron Scott said he “wouldn’t mind” if his starting lineup featured D’Angelo Russell (point guard), Jordan Clarkson (shooting guard), Kobe Bryant (small forward), Julius Randle (power forward) and Roy Hibbert (center). Scott plans to feature that lineup for the second consecutive game when the Lakers play the Utah Jazz on Tuesday at Stan Sheriff Center.“That group is a very good group,” Scott said following practice on Monday. “It’s very young. You have two veterans out there in Kobe and Roy. But I would love for this group to take it to the next level. The only way they can do that is by playing together a little bit more in game situations and in practice.”Bryant sounded intrigued about the lineup’s potential, too. After the Lakers’ 90-71 preseason loss to Utah on Sunday, Bryant argued “the pieces complement each other extremely well.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “It’s not horrible,” Brown said. “I want to take precaution. So I sat out. But it’s not horrible.”Brown’s instincts turned out correct. An MRI revealed a right shoulder strain, though the results came out negative. The Lakers have listed Brown to play Tuesday against Utah. Brown’s injury sparked confusion on how it happened. Scott believed Brown ran into a legal screen that reserve center Robert Sacre set, something he denied. Russell recalled it was Hibbert, who cited faulty memory.Brown did not offer any specifics. But he focused more of his anxiety on his training camp. He posted three points on 1-of-3 shooting and five fouls in 12 minutes against Utah. Brown also has defended Bryant, Metta World Peace, Nick Young and Lou Williams in practice.“Metta is a tank. He’s more brute strength and plays bully ball,” said Brown, whom the Lakers selected 34th overall. “Kobe has more skill. But they’re both extremely hard to guard.”How so?“They both know how to get fouled,” Brown said. “They can shoot in your face. The biggest thing is it doesn’t matter how close you are. They shoot the same shot. It doesn’t matter how much you contest. If Kobe misses it, it’s because he missed it. It’s not because you played good defense.”center_img The Lakers drafted Russell with the No. 2 pick because of his playmaking. Clarkson morphed from last year’s 46th pick to a member of the NBA’s All-Rookie team because of his scoring. Bryant’s resume speaks for itself, though concerns linger on whether he can stay healthy following three season-ending injuries in consecutive seasons. The Lakers remain intrigued with Randle’s versatility as a bruiser and playmaker missing nearly his entire rookie season because of a fractured right tibia. The Lakers acquired Hibbert from Indiana in hopes he can revamp the Lakers’ defense. Does Scott feel hesitant to rely on so many young players?“Not really,” Scott said. “If they’re good, it doesn’t really matter.”Nursing the pain The ice bag stayed firmly wrapped on Anthony Brown’s right shoulder. Lakers trainer Gary Vitti stood nearby finalizing plans for Brown to receive an MRI at a nearby hospital after the Lakers’ rookie small forward bumped his shoulder through a hard screen.last_img read more

Packers vs. Vikings odds, prediction, betting trends for ‘Monday Night Football’

first_imgThe Green Bay Packers (11-3) can wrap up the NFC North with a win over the Minnesota Vikings (10-4) on Monday night. Green Bay beat Minnesota earlier this season and has a better division record to have a leg up in the race for the division title, but the Vikings are playing at home where they are 6-0 thus far in 2019.Both teams have already clinched a spot in the postseason, yet we all know how important home field is in the postseason so Green Bay and Minnesota are both feeling the pressure tonight. Here’s everything to know about betting on Vikings vs. Packers in Week 16, including updated odds, trends and our expert’s prediction for “Monday Night Football.”MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting trends at Sports InsiderPackers vs. Vikings odds for ‘Monday Night Football’Minnesota Vikings -5 vs. Green Bay Packers, O/U 47This line has remained steady all week after an initial move in favor of the Vikings. The NFL betting odds initially listed Minnesota as a four-point favorite over Green Bay in this game, but that line quickly rose to Vikings -5 early in the week. There has been a similar move with the total as the original over/under in this game was 45.5 before rising to 47.Packers vs. Vikings all-time seriesAlthough Green Bay has more history than its NFC North rival, the Packers don’t have much of a historical edge against the Vikings in this series. Green Bay is 61-54-3 against Minnesota, and these teams have played some memorable games on Monday night.In 1998, Randy Moss announced his presence to the world with five catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in a blowout win for the Vikings, but the Packers got revenge two years later when Antonio Freeman made a ludicrous reception off a ball that was thought to be incomplete to beat Green Bay in overtime. The most anticipated game in this series happened 10 years ago though, as Brett Favre and Minnesota hosted Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay in the most highly rated game in cable television history.Three trends to know— The Packers are 6-1 ATS against teams with winning records in 2019.— The under is 7-0 in Green Bay’s last seven games against division opponents.— Minnesota is 36-15-1 ATS at home since 2013.Three things to watchMike Boone has a chance to be a fantasy heroMinnesota’s top two running backs are banged up headed into MNF, so the unheralded Mike Boone could become a fantasy football legend with a strong performance. With Dalvin Cook ruled out already due to a chest injury and Alexander Mattison very questionable due to an ankle issue, Boone is set to be the workhorse back for the Vikings tonight. Boone carried the ball 13 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns last week against the Chargers, and Green Bay is allowing 4.6 YPC and 120.9 YPG on the ground.Will Kirk Cousins bounce back?Kirk Cousins had his worst performance of the season on the road against Green Bay in Week 2. Cousins completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw multiple interceptions for the only time all year in a 21-16 loss to the Packers. That performance was an outlier considering what he has done against the Packers over the course of his career, and Minnesota is hoping to see its franchise quarterback rebound.Aaron Jones could become Green Bay’s second 1,000-yard back this decadeGreen Bay has generally had a tough time running the football since Aaron Rodgers took over for Brett Favre more than a decade ago, but Aaron Jones is having a fine year in 2019. Jones has run for 830 yards and 14 touchdowns while averaging 4.4 YPC to become the complementary piece that Packers’ fans have wanted since Eddie Lacy left. He has generally been boom or bust though with monster performances against Minnesota, Dallas, Kansas City, Carolina, and Washington, and mediocre numbers in his other nine games. Player to watchAaron Rodgers is not posting the numbers you’d expect on an 11-3 Packers team. Rodgers has thrown for more than 250 yards four times all season, and he hasn’t topped that number since October 27 against Kansas City. He averaged just 6.1 YPA against Minnesota earlier this year, throwing for 209 yards and two touchdowns in a Green Bay win.Packers vs. Vikings predictionMinnesota has been lights out at home this season. Although Cook and Mattison are hurt, Cousins will exploit an overrated Green Bay defense with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, leading the Vikings to their 11th win of the year.Vikings 30, Packers 17last_img read more
