Moyes fumes at West Ham rebel after new contract offer rejected

first_imgWest Ham boss, David Moyes, has said he was “disappointed” that exciting youngster Jeremy Ngakia has rejected a new contract. Injury concern – West Ham manager David Moyes Ngakia moved up to the Hammers‘ Under-23s side last summer and Moyes handed him his first-team debut in January. The 19-year-old has made three further Premier League appearances but will not be at the club next season. He has rejected a new contract and it remains unclear whether he will finish the protracted campaign with the club. “We are really surprised and disappointed that Jeremy is not going to stay at West Ham,” Moyes told the Evening Standard. “We like him a lot, we’ve given him his debut and I’m a manager who has done that many times in my career, including Wayne Rooney, Ross Barkley, Jordan Pickford and others.Advertisement Loading… “Jeremy is another one and I feel he is making a mistake choosing not to stay with us. We’ve trusted him in big games and everyone likes him at the club.” Moyes also said Ngakia’s decision would reflect badly on West Ham’s academy. “I also feel it’s a kick in the teeth for the academy, because they have developed a player for the first team and he’s not going to stay. We’re also really disappointed with his decision not to stay beyond June 30. “I don’t agree with that and I also think it’s something the Premier League should not allow to happen, because it means the season is not starting and finishing in the same way. read also:Moyes worried he will be stuck with West Ham deadwood “There’s nothing we can do about that, though, and we are still working with him. We like him, we want him to feel he’s been given the best service we can give and maybe there’s still a little hope that we can change his mind. “We haven’t given up all hope of Jeremy realising he has got it wrong, but I have to say he has told me directly that it is not his choice to stay.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market Value7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty Penny6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Boeheim rants on RPI, says system ‘doesn’t make any sense’

first_imgWhen discussing his team’s strength of schedule after its 70-48 win over Eastern Michigan on Tuesday, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim veered his thoughts toward his distaste for the NCAA’s Ratings Percentage Index.“It’s math people playing with numbers that don’t know anything about the game of basketball,” Boeheim said. “That’s what the RPI boils down to.”As No. 2 Syracuse (13-0) heads into its first ever Atlantic Coast Conference schedule, it has a handful of impressive out-of-conference wins under its belt. Victories over Baylor, Indiana and Villanova top that list, and it has jumped the Orange to second in the latest RPI standings.RPI  is ultimately used by the NCAA Selection Committee to rank teams for the NCAA Tournament in March. It is used across NCAA sports and considers wins, losses and strength of schedule to rank teams.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoeheim described SU’s nonconference schedule as tough, and said it couldn’t have played out any better for the Orange. But he’s not ready to let RPI illustrate Syracuse’s success in the early going.“The other day before we played Villanova we were 15th in the RPI,” Boeheim said. “We played Villanova at home which you’re supposed to win even though it’s a tough game, we win that game and we go to one. We jumped 14 places? That doesn’t make any sense. The whole thing doesn’t make sense.”ESPN college basketball analyst Joe Lunardi and a team of “bracketologists” replicate the system for college basketball and update rankings throughout the season.Currently, Massachusetts is the only team with a higher RPI than Syracuse.“I don’t understand the whole strength of schedule, RPIs,” the Syracuse head coach said. “The more you look at it, it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.” Comments Published on December 31, 2013 at 6:33 pm Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse earns No. 9 seed, 1st-round bye in NCAA tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse has received the No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament and a first-round bye, the NCAA announced on Monday afternoon.The Orange (15-3-1, 5-2-1 Atlantic Coast) will play the winner of Penn State and Hartwick on Sunday at SU Soccer Stadium at 2 p.m. The Nittany Lions, who earned an at-large bid, and the Hawks, who automatically qualified by winning the Sun Belt, will face off on Thursday in University Park, Pennsylvania.If SU faces Hartwick in the second round, it’ll be a familiar sight for Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre, associate head coach Jukka Masalin and assistant coach Matt Verni. McIntyre was the Hawks’ head coach from 2003-09 and Masalin was his assistant for two years before both came to Syracuse. Verni led the women’s team from 2007-13 and also graduated from the school.“Probably, yeah,” McIntyre said with a smile after being asked if he’d prefer a matchup with Hartwick. “As an alumnus, as a former coach, I am a little bit biased, delighted that they’re in the tournament. But they’ve got a tough game.”The Orange defeated Hartwick, 4-1, in its first exhibition game on Aug. 16, and hasn’t played Penn State this year.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter beating Duke in the first round of the ACC tournament, Syracuse fell to Louisville, 2-1, in the semifinals on Friday. Last time it lost to the Cardinals’ the Orange went 2-0-1 in the next three games, finishing the regular season as the nation’s top-ranked team.Said midfielder Stefanos Stamoulacatos: “We’re all confident that we have the ability to make it back to North Carolina and get to that final four again.” Comments Published on November 17, 2014 at 1:49 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

Brewers rally to beat Reds 9-3 for first home win

first_img First Published: 10th August, 2020 11:07 IST Associated Press Television News Written By COMMENT  Christian Yelich homered, tripled and drew a bases-loaded walk as the Milwaukee Brewers rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 on Sunday for their first home victory.The Brewers avoided falling to 0-5 at home for the first time since 1970, the franchise’s inaugural season in Milwaukee.Milwaukee entered the game hitting .210, but its lineup delivered a smashing performance in the late innings.Justin Smoak broke out of a slump and delivered hits from each side of the plate during a six-run rally in the sixth that put the Brewers ahead for good. Milwaukee poured it on in the seventh with back-to-back homers from Keston Hiura and Yelich.Hiura went 3 for 5 with two runs and two RBIs.Cincinnati’s Jesse Winker was 3 for 4 with a homer, double and two RBIs.The Reds were seeking their first sweep at Milwaukee since August 2009 and led 2-1 when starter Sonny Gray (3-1) remained in the game to open the sixth inning with his pitch count at 92.Gray gave up three hits to the Brewers’ first four batters of the inning and left with the score tied and runners on the corners with one out. Michael Lorenzen replaced Gray and didn’t retire any of the four hitters he faced as the Brewers eventually built a 7-2 lead.Eric Sogard walked to load the bases and Hiura singled home Mark Mathias to put the Brewers ahead. Lorenzen then walked Yelich with the bases loaded to extend Milwaukee’s lead to 4-2.Lorenzen received a mound visit after Yelich walked, but remained in the game. Lorenzen then walked Logan Morrison to bring in one more run before exiting with the Brewers ahead 5-2. Smoak capped the rally with a two-run single off Cody Reed.Smoak struck out in his first at-bat, but followed that up with three straight hits to end stretches of 0 for 14 and 1 for 25 stretch. He ended up going 3 for 5 with a double.Brent Suter (2-0) earned the win with two innings of shutout relief after starter Brandon Woodruff allowed two runs in four innings.GRAY (BARELY) EXTENDS STREAKGray gave up six hits or fewer for a major league-record 37th consecutive start. He allowed six hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out seven.The last time Gray gave up more than six hits in a start was Aug. 1, 2018, when he was pitching for the New York Yankees and yielded seven runs in 2 2/3 innings to absorb the loss in a 7-5 setback against the Baltimore Orioles.TRAINER’S ROOMThe Reds placed infielder Mike Moustakas on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Thursday, with a bruised left quadriceps.Reds reliever Pedro Strop and center fielder Nick Senzel have groin injuries. Cincinnati manager David Bell said Strop “is trending toward some time off here” but Senzel should be ready to return by Tuesday.UP NEXTThe Reds have Monday off before beginning a two-game home series with the Kansas City Royals.

Gennaro Gattuso given four-match ban for headbutt

first_imgAC Milan’s Gennaro Gattuso has been banned for four matches after clashing with Tottenham assistant coach Joe Jordan during a Champions League tie.Midfielder Gattuso headbutted Jordan following his side’s 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their last-16 encounter at the San Siro and has since apologised.European football’s governing body Uefa handed down the punishment after a disciplinary hearing on Monday.But Milan have said that they will not be appealing against the decision.The 33-year-old former Rangers star had already been ruled out of the second leg at White Hart Lane on 9 March after picking up a booking in the first match.The veteran Italian headbutted Jordan as tempers flared at full-time in Milan 1-0 Champions League. “I lost control. There is no excuse for what I did. I take my responsibilities for that,” the Milan captain said.“I was nervous. We were both speaking Scottish, something that I learned when I played in his home city of Glasgow, but I can’t tell you what we said.“I didn’t want to argue with players and I did it with him but I was wrong to do what I have done. I will have to await what they decide.”Gattuso and 59-year-old Scot Jordan had already clashed on the touchline during a bad-tempered second half in which Mathieu Flamini escaped with a only booking for a two-footed challenge on Vedran Corluka.Croatia full-back Corluka left the field on a stretcher and was later seen on the substitutes’ bench with crutches and an ice pack on his ankle.“The tackle from Flamini was a horrendous tackle,” Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp commented. “It was a sending off. He was two or three feet off the floor with his two feet raised. It was a leg-breaking tackle.” The Flamini challenge turned the second half into a feisty affair, with Gattuso becoming increasingly aggressive.The Milan skipper, making his 450th appearance for the Rossoneri, confronted Spurs striker Peter Crouch before collecting a booking that will rule him out of the second leg for a lunge at Steven Pienaar.At the final whistle, Gattuso removed his shirt and headed straight for Jordan, hurling abuse at the Spurs first-team coach before lashing out with his head.The Italian was pulled away by team-mates and briefly stopped to embrace Spurs defender William Gallas before following Jordan down the tunnel.“I don’t know why it all got so silly,” Redknapp added. “Gattuso had a flare-up with Joe Jordan. I don’t know why.“He obviously hadn’t done his homework. He could’ve picked a fight with somebody else. Putting his head into Joe’s face, it was crazy. He lost his head.” Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri said he was disappointed with his captain’s conduct but claimed his rage was sparked by a late tackle on him by Pienaar which preceded the touchline clash with Jordan.“Flamini’s tackle was quite a bad one but the foul on Gattuso on his knee was also a bad one,” Allegri stated.“I don’t know what happened at the end of the match. It was not nice to see. I think there was a reason but there is no excuse for that.”Describing the scene on air, BBC Radio 5 live’s Mark Pougatch said Gattuso had “lost it”.Italian football journalist Gabriele Marcotti added: “Gattuso is an emotional player but after getting angry he calmed down enough to hug and kiss William Gallas and Harry Redknapp.“You think he is going to calm down then he goes after Joe Jordan. Absolutely incredible.” Redknapp joked that it was not wise to pick a fight with Jordan, who played for AC Milan between 1981 and 1983 after long spells with Leeds and Manchester United.“There would be only one winner there – Joe,” the 63-year-old Spurs boss said. “I’d have my money on Joe. Of all the people to pick on, don’t pick on Joe.”Source: BBClast_img read more
