first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd boss Solskjaer delighted with Rashford, Lukaku for Bournemouth routby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with his goalscorers for victory over Bournemouth.A cavalier display in the first half at Old Trafford saw United score three times, with Paul Pogba netting his second double in successive matches and Marcus Rashford grabbing the other.Solskjaer’s side conceded their third goal in as many games when Nathan Ake headed in before substitute Romelu Lukaku fired home a fourth.The manager said, “I think Marcus has been different class since I have come in. He has scored two goals now in three games. His work rate is unbelievable. He closes down, chases, runs in behind and his skill for the first goal for Paul today was [brilliant]. The first thing is he holds up the ball up and hasn’t got the right to go past the first defender, but then to go past the second defender… he has got all the potential in the world to be a top, top striker.”On Lukaku, he also stated: “He is a good, good target man, but if you tell him to be a target man he will never face the goal. Today he was side on, so he could go in behind or go towards the ball and he has got the attributes of a top striker, but we need to work on his fitness because he has had a few days off, but I am delighted for him even though he was half a yard offside, but it was still a good finish.” last_img read more

10 months agoSkriniar? Godin? Why Man Utd owe Solskjaer a defensive deal

first_imgSkriniar? Godin? Why Man Utd owe Solskjaer a defensive dealby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: So blank it? Let this transfer window pass? No chance. Manchester United will be active this month. Indeed, they already are. Though whether it’s a ruse for a longer term target. Or one to get in immediately. Only Ed Woodward can tell us that…The idea that United’s vice-chairman exec is going to sit this one out. That he’ll wait until the summer. Wait until Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been discarded for the more acceptable, marketable name. Well, given his history, that just doesn’t stack up.Louis van Gaal never asked for Angel di Maria nor Radamel Falcao. Jose Mourinho had no idea about Eric Bailly until they were being introduced at Carrington. If there is a deal to be done, then Woodward – and to be fair, in consultation with Jim Lawlor – will pull the trigger. From Italy, it’s broke in the last 48 hours. They’re in for him. Diego Godin. Turned down once in August after a beat the deadline offer. Woodward has moved late – again – with an attempt to rumble Inter Milan’s month-long negotiations with the Uruguayan’s minders.The latest is Woodward has matched Inter’s contract offer of around £2m-a-year. And with his current deal to expire in June, both clubs believe Atletico Madrid will sell for a bargain basement £3m.For the moment, those in the know – specifically in Milan – believe Godin is ready to commit to the Nerazzurri. The great irony being, it was Woodward who set this whole thing in motion six months ago. Need an explanation? Well, let’s turn to the defender’s biographer Jose Navarro, who declared on Saturday night: “Godin has not closed any deal with Inter. But the reality is that Atletico made some promises to the player, after the Manchester United bid, and they never respected it. And then they made no effort to renew Godin’s contract.”So promises broken and a deal still alive. Woodward could be in here. We know – sans Jose – United still want that cheap, experienced centre-half signing. The enquiries after Andreas Granqvist, the Helsingborgs captain, had Lawlor’s finger prints all over it. With the opportunity again raised, Inter’s intermediaries can’t be surprised by United’s eleventh hour attempt.But there’s another factor to be considered. Another player in this mix. Milan Skriniar. Inter Milan’s Slovakian centre-half. Admired by Jose Mourinho. Approved by Woodward. Before Godin, a bid of €70m was lodged for Skriniar and flatly rejected by the Italians. The player stating at the time: “I’m happy about the interest in me, but Inter decided how they decided, so I cannot say anything more about it.”And the same source making that €70m revelation is now insisting Inter’s move for Godin would be to replace Skriniar, not complement him. Further strengthening United’s hand is Barcelona – their nearest rivals for the defender – taking Jeison Murillo on-loan from Valencia just last week. Find that €70m and Woodward could have his man – so long as he steps aside for Inter to take Godin.So where does this leave Solskjaer? Well, simply in the same place as all those before him. Van Gaal, Mourinho, David Moyes… even Ryan Giggs. They had their say. Sure. But they didn’t really have power of veto. For his part, Solskjaer will surely welcome a defensive signing. He didn’t make light of having to move Matteo Darmian inside for Saturday’s FA Cup win over Reading. Just as Mourinho suffered before him, the Norwegian has found the squad short at the back. Whether it’s Godin, Skriniar or some equivalent, Solskjaer will appreciate the show of support.And he deserves it. Even battling through a labourious 2-0 win over the Royals, the manager still found a way to lift the crowd. Two five goal results. The revival of Paul Pogba. The confirmation of Marcus Rashford. Solskjaer has been delivering way beyond his brief. And he read the mood superbly on Saturday, spying the chance to give everyone inside Old Trafford a lift with the debut of Tahith Chong.It could’ve been just a ho-hum win. Expected. Forgettable. Instead, Solskjaer gave those attending something special. An ‘I was there’ moment as he gave Chong a first home appearance.Any of those ex-teammates warning against business this month. That making a major signing for Solskjaer would be wrong given he’ll be gone by June. They need to consider recent history.No matter whom is in the home dugout, Woodward will buy regardless. And if it’s to be a defender who can make an instant impact all the better. It’s the least the current manager deserves for what he’s done for Manchester United in these three short weeks.

Xi says EU China advancing together despite suspicions

We shouldn’t let suspicions lead us to be constantly looking backwards.” Xi was speaking on the third day of a France visit dominated by concerns over China’s massive investments on the continent, which are being built up through a series of bilateral deals.

Time to tweak Tresselball

Expectations run high at Ohio State. Just ask Jim Tressel. The Ohio State football coach, under unprecedented scrutiny after another big-game letdown, is feeling the heat for the first time during his nine-year tenure in Columbus.“You felt like it’s been a nine-year honeymoon?” Tressel asked a reporter. “You must not have liked your honeymoon.”The Buckeyes have lost their past six games against opponents ranked among the nation’s top five. If the Buckeyes are to match the lofty expectations set forth by years of tradition, then the days of being the big boys’ punching bag must end.A key to anything in life is adjusting to external forces, or, in football, one’s opponent. Coaches make changes in personnel and scheme at halftime. These modifications may or may not work. When they don’t pan out for a period of three years — Ohio State last knocked off a top-five adversary in 2006 — more grand-scale fine-tuning must take place.The unrest in Buckeye nation comes from the lack of adjustments from Tressel and his staff. Football is undergoing a temporary face lift, especially on the college level. All sports endure periods of varied gameplay, from the recent home run era in baseball to the early days of basketball when centers dominated the ball.Now, the name of the game in college football is speed and athleticism. Spread offenses, popping up around the nation like unwelcome groundhogs, are forcing defenses to get smaller and quicker. Athletic, versatile quarterbacks are the latest fad.OSU has its multi-faceted signal caller in Terrelle Pryor, the No. 1 high school recruit in 2008. But instead of making adjustments to accommodate the 6-foot-6, 235-pound quarterback, Tressel has squeezed the rare breed into his vanilla, run-based offense. The results haven’t pleased many; Pryor has seldom demonstrated the ability to excel in the Bucks’ offensive system, one Tressel refuses to alter. Rich Rodriguez instituted the spread offense last year at Michigan with players unsuited for the new scheme. A 3-9 record ensued. Now, with athletes at his disposal recruited specifically for the spread approach, the Wolverines are off to a 3-0 start.Recently, Tressel has targeted more players blessed with unparalleled speed to match the likes of Florida, USC or Texas. However, it’s the Buckeyes same old plan of attack that has prevented the program from reaching new heights.The Gators stymied the heavily-favored Buckeyes in ’07 with their athletic defense, limiting Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith to four completions for 35 yards. OSU couldn’t contain LSU’s plethora of speedy receivers the following year. The Trojan defense held OSU to fewer than 275 yards in each USC victory. And the Longhorns’ spread passing attack broke the hearts of Buckeye backers everywhere, as Colt McCoy threw for 414 yards.To catch up to the rest of the college football world, Tressel and Co. must implement changes on both sides of the ball. They must design an approach that suits the strengths of the athletes they have collected. Pryor is probably best equipped for a spread attack, which would give him space to operate with both his developing throwing arm and his nimble feet. He needs the instruction to focus on scoring touchdowns, not controlling field position.If Ohio State is to be recognized among the nation’s college football titans, the Buckeyes must prove they can beat bona fide competition. That signature victory has eluded the program for several years now. Tresselball needs a change to keep up with the rest of the best. read more

Urban Meyer reflects on 1st win at Ohio State

For football-starved Ohio State fans, Saturday finally came. Wrapped in an intoxicating frenzy, Urban Meyer’s debut as the Buckeyes’ football coach finally came. And it didn’t disappoint. After routing Miami (Ohio) 56-10, the program’s first triumph since a shaky 34-20 win against Indiana on Nov. 5 finally came. On an oppressively sultry afternoon in Ohio Stadium, eight months of anticipation – eight months of wondering what the “Urban Era” had in store – finally came. Who would have thought, then, that there could have been an entire quarter’s worth of anxiety-ridden restlessness as the first quarter of Saturday’s game seemed like a continuation of OSU’s historically bad 6-7 season last year. Down 3-0 after being outgained 172-48 by the RedHawks in the first quarter, a wave of uneasiness left a once-euphoric crowd of 105,039 subdued as Miami’s senior quarterback Zac Dysert and junior wide receiver Nick Harwell gashed the Buckeyes’ defense with big play and after big play. Suffice to say, Meyer wasn’t particularly pleased. “Well, not fortunately or unfortunately – whatever it is – that darned first quarter, I was embarrassed with the way we were playing,” he said. “We worked so hard and we didn’t play very well, in all phases. Defense let a couple of passes go that we shouldn’t have.” Meyer’s vaunted spread offense, which was was supposed to allow sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller room to thrive, amassed five yards on 1-of-7 passing. Through it all, though, Meyer said Miller kept his poise. It was one of the things he wanted to see out of the sophomore on Saturday, he said. “I think one of the things about Braxton Miller that I really had to see, and I did see today, is that the objective with Braxton is to make him from an athlete playing quarterback to a quarterback that manages,” Meyer said. “And a quarterback position is a unique position in all sports, where he’s got to manage so much. He’s got to manage basically the entire offense,” he said. “He’s got to stay positive – his leadership. He has to be a leader.” Football is “not a game of anger,” Miller said. “Go out there, have fun, enjoy the time with your teammates and make sure you’re doing all the right things positive ways; if you’re doing anything in the negative way there’s nothing that’s going to get done at that point,” he said. And at the outset of the second quarter, that leadership seemed to finally manifest itself on the field. Finally, the Buckeyes sunk into a rhythm with their up-tempo style of play and burst out for a four play, 83-yard drive that ended in an acrobatic, one-handed touchdown snag from sophomore wide receiver Devin Smith. “I don’t know if Devin has been saving that, but I’ve not seen him do that. Now that I know he can, I expect – he’s actually been playing pretty good for us,” Meyer said. “But that was a wild moment. And that was a moment that ignited the stadium. The stadium got quiet,” Meyer said. “Our sideline got quiet and we were waiting for a play to happen and he went out and made a play. That’s football.” Redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby said the catch was “fantastic.” “If you go back to the replay, I actually ran on the field,” he said. “So I’m not sure if that’s a penalty or anything, but I actually run on the field and gave him a high-five.” With momentum and the lead in their hands, OSU’s offense exploded for 35 unanswered points while its defense found ways to entirely suffocate the RedHawk’s run game and slow their aerial assault down. Near the end of the third quarter, Meyer said he was finally able to find a time for mental snapshots and soak in the magnitude of his first game calling the shots in Columbus. “The day overall, it was a great day. ‘Hang on Sloopy’ kicked it off in the fourth quarter. And I stared at that for a while, watched it. Told a couple of people that I’ve never seen that before. Checked that out,” Meyer said. “Just for years and years I’ve always remembered the change in the third and fourth quarter, what happens in that stadium,” Meyer said. But such a moment for reflection, Meyer said, was limited. Until the game clock struck zero, at least.  In the footsteps of the tradition that former Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel started in 2001, Meyer locked arms with his players in the south end zone and sang “Carmen Ohio” with the rest of the team and the tens of thousands of fans still remaining in the stadium. “You look like you were really enjoying the alma mater. And I’m just wondering if that was the one point when you finally got to a point where you could enjoy being the Ohio State coach and just being in the stadium and the whole thing,” one reporter asked at Meyer’s postgame press conference. The 48-year-old sidestepped the essence of the question. “I’ve been enjoying being Ohio State coach for about seven months now,” Meyer responded. Meyer, though, said he didn’t want to deflate that moment. “I’m with a bunch of guys I care about. Love our players. Two guys next to me – and (Garrett) Goebel’s to my left, and I love that guy,” he said regarding the Buckeyes’ senior captain and nose tackle. “There’s a lot of guys on this team I have a lot of respect. And saying the alma mater, I’m a graduate, and the fight song, that was a special moment. And we got to sing the fight song in the locker room as well.” Despite being anxious for the game, Meyer said he got about six hours of sleep the night before. “I like this team. I like these guys,” he said. “When you like that, you sleep pretty good.” read more
