Eagle swoops for victory

first_img The winner is now 10-1 for next year’s 2000 Guineas at Newmarket with Stan James, behind just Kingman and his own stablemate War Command. O’Brien snr, who went on to a four-timer, said: “You would have to be delighted with that. It was a tough race and there was plenty of pace on. He was trapped out wide and had no choice but to go up the middle. It’s a hard thing to do here, so you would have to be happy with him. “He was drawn out there, there was pace on and it was tight. He kept him safe and it’s always the right thing to do. “He could step up anywhere now. It’s a choice of the National Stakes or the Middle Park and all those types of races. What’s good about this horse is he has great pace and travels very strongly. “We didn’t ask him to come forward from his last race, we just let him coast into this. Next time we’ll ask him to come forward a bit. You couldn’t see him getting any further than a mile as he travels very strongly.” Aidan O’Brien’s Naas debut winner was a 1-3 favourite as he stepped up to Group Three level and was always travelling strongly, positioned in behind rivals on the outside of the field. Once in the clear, the youngster picked up nicely for Joseph O’Brien and was well on top as he passed the post two lengths to the good over Remember You, with Expedition third. Great White Eagle cemented his status as a potentially top-class juvenile with his second win from as many starts in a stylish display in the Go And Go Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Rodgers ends Gerrard exit debate

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has drawn a line under the ongoing debate over whether the club did enough to keep Steven Gerrard at the club. “There is nothing any more to add,” said Rodgers. “Everything has been said on that situation that needs to be said. “Steven spoke very openly and honestly with his feelings on it. When you see all the interviews you will find it was dealt with. “If you want to pick a few words out of what he said and elaborate… he is happy where it is at. “His concentration is now on football, he has announced where he is going so you have all the information and he has done all his interviews. “Now we really have to concentrate on the football and the team and keep the momentum going.” Rodgers admits attention now has to be paid to finding players capable of succeeding such a club icon. “There is no doubt Steven is still a top-class player and has been that world-class talent for many years and him leaving in the summer leaves a void on and off the pitch but the club has to keep moving forward. “We have to keep looking to bring in the best players we can. “History shows players who have been great players here move on and it is an opportunity for other players to grab the mantle.” Rodgers has high hopes for young forward Raheem Sterling, who is expected to sign an improved new contract within the next month which will reflect his growing importance to the side. “Raheem has burst onto the scene and been outstanding and in one of the most competitive leagues in the world he has been on of the top-performing players,” he added. “He still has a lot of years in his football education.” Gerrard’s impending departure, following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona last summer, leaves the side low on top-class quality. The club’s recruitment policy since Fenway Sports Group took over in 2010 has been to focus on buying players with potential to improve but the current situation demands a different approach. “It is important to continue to move forward,” added Rodgers. “I was fully aware part of the evolution of this group in the first two or three years (of his reign) was going to be that period where some of the great names of the club were going to move on. “The likes of Carra (Jamie Carragher) in my first year was brilliant and come the end of that season he wanted to move on. “Guys like Pepe Reina, stalwarts of the club, needed to move on to play regularly and you have seen recently Steven feels at the end of the season it is time for a life change as much as a football change. “It is very difficult for a manager, these are players who have been outstanding for the club. “You have to strategically have a plan in place to do everything you possibly can to replace that quality. “Ultimately that is what it is about. It is not about the number of players, it is about the sheer quality of the player. “Liverpool has had that quality over a number of years and must continue to have it going forward. “That is a challenge for a manager in the model of how we work and we will have to work very hard to get that level of player in. “We must also respect young players coming in need to be given that opportunity so hopefully they can become a star.” The Reds captain, whose move to the Los Angeles Galaxy this summer was confirmed on Wednesday, revealed earlier this week he would have signed a new contract had it been offered in pre-season. Liverpool’s offer of an extended deal did not arrive until November, by which time the 34-year-old was already considering his future, and that has prompted questions about the club’s handling of the affair.

Fast reaction: Syracuse drops its 8th straight game, this time to N.C. State

first_imgRALEIGH, N.C.— Syracuse (3-8, 1-6 Atlantic Coast) lost to North Carolina State (7-4, 3-4), 42-29, on Saturday afternoon at Carter-Finley Stadium. With the loss, the Orange officially fell out of bowl eligibility as the chance to squeak into one with five wins became unattainable. The loss also extends SU’s losing streak to eight games.Here are three quick takeaways from the game:1. Cut short

Syracuse struggled extending drives, going 0-for-7 on third down in the first three quarters. The Orange continued to be forced into third and longs. Quarterback Zack Mahoney repeatedly overthrew receivers in one-on-one coverage downfield and SU drives stalled as a result. Mahoney finished 10-of-21 and his inability to convert on deep passes did Syracuse in on Saturday.2. Out of rhythmAdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse was out-gained 511-292 as the Wolfpack ran 81 plays compared to the Orange’s 53.N.C. State worked quickly on offense, giving the SU defense little time to catch its breath between plays. The Wolfpack scored 14 offensive points on two touchdowns drives at the beginning of third and fourth quarters, respectively. The first one took just 2:23, and the second took 2:47. After gashing SU for 75 yards in nearly six minutes on its opening drive, the hosts never looked back.3. Efficient hybridsA large chunk of the Orange’s offense came from its hybrids. Ervin Philips and Ben Lewis were the only SU players to catch passes into the third quarter. With 1:31 left in the second quarter, Mahoney threw a pretty lob over the middle of the field to Philips who caught it in the end zone. The play cut N.C. State’s deficit to 12 and sparked a potential comeback for SU.On Syracuse’s first offensive drive, the Orange ran several plays in which either Philips or Brisly Estime went in motion pre-snap. After repeated variations of the same play, Mahoney found Lewis downfield for a 37-yard gain that set up a field goal a few plays later. Lewis left the game with an upper-body injury but his 62 receiving yards led SU. Philips finished with 36 receiving yards and 32 rushing yards.

NBA free agency: Bulls waive Carmelo Anthony; Lakers seen as possible destination

He averaged 13.4 points per game. LeBron James talks playoffs after flirting with triple-double in Lakers return By waiving Anthony, the Bulls opened up a roster spot to acquire Thunder guard-forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot for a protected second-round draft pick in 2020, a deal the team announced at the same time. The Bulls acquired Anthony, a 10-time All-Star, on Jan. 22 in a deal with the Rockets.

From Brady and Brees to Mahomes and Jackson: The NFL enters a new QB era for the 2020s

first_imgAside from Rodgers, who should have a few years left in Green Bay, it is conceivable that the rest of that group — Brees, Brady, Rivers, Eli Manning and Roethlisberger — may head off into the sunset over the next couple of seasons.Throw in Peyton Manning, who retired in 2016, and it is obvious we are seeing the last days of the golden generation that spearheaded the pass-happy revolution.Luckily, there’s a host of players ready to take over and take on the mantle in the 2020s. If the 2010s were the decade of the veteran quarterbacks, the 2020s promise to be the next generation’s era.Ten years ago, Peyton Manning met Drew Brees in the Super Bowl, Matt Schaub led the league in passing yards and Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers and Eli Manning were all in the top 10. Seven of that top 10 remain on teams in 2019 but only two — Rivers and Brady — featured among the leaders in that category this season.Brees, Brady, et al. are used to completing passes — only this time, it’s the baton that is changing hands.We take a look at why the future is now when it comes to the NFL’s most important position.QBs aged 27 or younger combined for a record 288 starts in 2019Forty-somethings Brady and Brees may remain somewhere near the peak of their powers, but behind them, a youth movement is taking over.Lamar Jackson of the @Ravens is the second QB in NFL history to win 10 straight starts at age 22 or younger.He joins Ben Roethlisberger, who won all 13 of his starts as a 22 year old in 2004.#RavensFlock— Stats By STATS (@StatsBySTATS) December 13, 2019The 2019 season saw QBs aged 27 or younger combine for 288 starts — by far the most since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Those young slingers combined for 145 wins, too — again, another record broken by a large margin.In Week 3, a record 20 of the 32 starting quarterbacks were 27 or younger. Draft classes after Brady, Brees and Rivers may not have produced players able to emulate their peers’ achievements but playoff-bound QBs Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson have provided plenty of early encouragement.Nine rookie QBs started a game in 2019; four did so in 2009Remember the days when coaches wanted rookies to sit, learn the system and be thrown in when they were ready? Whether it was injuries (Gardner Minshew, Devlin Hodges, David Blough) or just pure curiosity (Will Grier, Ryan Finley) — teams turned to first-year players in 2019 in a way they never did a decade ago.Only four rookies started games in the 2009 season, and three of those were first-rounders (Matt Stafford, Mark Sanchez and Josh Freeman). Daniel Jones is the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to have three games with 4+ touchdown passes and zero interceptions.He’s the first player in @Giants history with three such games in a season.#GiantsPride pic.twitter.com/OagYtBOrlk— Stats By STATS (@StatsBySTATS) December 22, 2019The QB with the most rushing yards in 2009 had … 323A decade ago, CJ2K became a thing as Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson went over 2,000 yards on the ground.The leading QB in that category also came from the AFC South, with Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard amassing 323 rushing yards.He was one of only four QBs — along with Rodgers, Vince Young and Jason Campbell — to pile up more than 200 on the season. Two hundred rushing yards? That’s practically an eight-day span for current Baltimore QB Jackson, who broke an NFL record with a whopping 1,206 on the ground.MVP-in-waiting Jackson was one of 13 quarterbacks to rush for over 200 yards in 2019. Six of those beat Garrard’s 2009 total and all but Russell Wilson are 24 or younger.For years, dual-threat quarterbacks were seen as a quick fad that would burn out because teams had to win from the pocket, yet mobility at the QB position has proven to be a vital weapon in today’s NFL.No. 8, again, was great.298 Total Yards5 Passing TouchdownsSingle Season QB Rushing Record @Ravens | #RavensFlock | @Lj_era8 pic.twitter.com/sy6QZO81u3— NFL (@NFL) December 13, 201975 percent of head-coaching hires came from offensive backgrounds in 2019Eleven head coach vacancies were filled prior to the 2009 season. Seven of those came from defensive backgrounds.Eight head coach vacancies were filled prior to the 2019 season. Six of those came from offensive backgrounds.Call it the Sean McVay effect: NFL franchises want bright young minds to teach their promising-but-green QBs how to thrive at the next level. Goodbye, golden generation?In the all-time list for most touchdown passes — a category Brees recently put himself atop — six of the leading 10 players are still active.last_img read more

Premier League clubs agree to five substitutions rule change

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp For the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the number of substitutes that can be used during a match will increase from three to five players Just one positive case from 1,197 tests was detected from the latest round of checks on players and staff.Clubs have reportedly agreed for a small number of matches to be played at neutral venues where it is considered necessary by the emergency services and safety advisory groups.“The majority of remaining matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a small number of fixtures taking place at neutral venues,” Mark Roberts, the UK’s national lead for football policing, said last week.Roberts suggested any match where runaway league leaders Liverpool could win the title for the first time in 30 years would be played at a neutral venue to discourage crowds from gathering around Anfield.Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top and just two games away from clinching the title.However, Merseyside Police have said they are happy to police matches in Liverpool, including the Merseyside derby at Everton’s Goodison Park which is due to be played over the weekend of June 19-22.Liverpool City Council’s safety advisory group will convene next week to make a decision regarding that fixture.center_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | Managers will be able to make up to five substitutions for the remainder of the 2019/20 Premier League season after clubs agreed to the temporary rule change at a meeting on Thursday.FIFA proposed the solution last month to “protect player welfare” with a large number of matches packed into a few weeks to clear the backlog of a three-month layoff due to the coronavirus pandemic.Premier League clubs also agreed to increase the number of substitutes available for selection from seven to nine for the remainder of the season.“For the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the number of substitutes that can be used during a match will increase from three to five players,” the Premier League said in a statement.“Shareholders also approved for clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.”To avoid too many stoppages, however, each team will still only have three opportunities to make changes as well as at half-time.The Premier League will resume with two matches on June 17 as Manchester City host Arsenal and Sheffield United travel to Aston Villa.The remaining nine full rounds of fixtures are then expected to be completed in just five weeks.No decision was made at Thursday’s meeting on how league standings would be determined if a spike in infections should cause the season to be interrupted once more.last_img read more
