Louis van Gaal tips Chris Smalling as future Manchester United captain

first_img The England international was booked on the half-hour for trying to stop Joe Hart kicking from his hands, and eight minutes later he was dismissed for a late and needless foul on James Milner. Smalling put the episode behind him and went on to establish himself as a first-team regular under Van Gaal, who handed the player a new four-year contract in April. The United manager has been so impressed by the 25-year-old that he has tipped him to take the captain’s armband once Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick retire. “Wayne Rooney is the captain and so you don’t have worry and then (vice-captain) Michael Carrick, but when they are gone then Chris Smalling can do that, so I push him also in that situation,” Van Gaal said. The former Fulham centre-back played a key part in United’s victories over City, Liverpool and Tottenham in the spring, which all but secured Champions League qualification. And he has started this season in the same form. Almost a quarter of the way into the season, he is the only player to have started every match under Van Gaal. The Dutchman feels Smalling has become more vocal and that has been crucial to his development. “He has done it by himself,” Van Gaal added. Smalling will be one of the first names on Van Gaal’s teamsheet when United host City at Old Trafford on Sunday. Van Gaal branded Smalling “stupid” last year for his performance in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium. Louis van Gaal believes Chris Smalling is destined to become Manchester United captain. “There is a lot of advice. It is about how we defend as a team. He is a part of that and I wanted him to speak. “He also has the talent to speak. That makes him easy to coach. “Because of that I made him a leader of the team. “He has made steps and also in a tactical way. When you give instruction in terms of organisation you need someone to understand that. “David de Gea has the best view and then the central defenders so I demand of my defenders that they speak.” Van Gaal’s injury problems were so severe at the start of last term that Michael Carrick had to fill in at centre-back when Smalling was sent off last November. Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw, Rafael, Carrick and Angel di Maria – among others – suffered injury problems throughout the season. Van Gaal frankly admitted he was to blame for United’s crippling injury crisis at the start of his maiden campaign. “That was my fault,” said Van Gaal, who put his players through punishing double training sessions on their tour of the United States shortly after he took over. “I was training them harder but they were not used to training like that. I am convinced you have to train, now they are used to that step. “I also let players go because of that and I buy new players. “I think they are more used to my training sessions. You can see that with the new players. You can see which players are always injured. “In my career I never had injuries like that. I have always preferred small selections (squads). I think I have the smallest selection in the Premier League.” When asked whether he thought his squad was too small, Van Gaal said: “No, it is not otherwise I would have had a bigger squad. I believe in smaller squads because you need perspective otherwise the motivation is a doubt. “Last season we had 24 players. We sold 15 players and bought five. This year we sold again and sent on loan 10 players and only six players we bought. “I think 22 players and three goalkeepers is enough so I am still one short.” Van Gaal believes the packed English schedule is not helping United, their top-flight rivals or the national side. He added: “There is no winter break and I think that is the most evil thing of this culture. It is not good for English football. “It is not good for the clubs or the national team. I think you should change it. England haven’t won anything for how many years? Because all the players are exhausted at the end of the season.” Press Associationlast_img read more

From first play, SU defense exposed by Pitt aerial assault

Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Mike Holmes expected the Pittsburgh routine. First-and-10 on the Panthers’ first offensive play of the game would be simple enough. They’d go with the bread and butter. Run the ball up the gut with Dion Lewis or Ray Graham. Syracuse stacked nine in the box, expecting the same thing. Sixteen seconds later, Pittsburgh wide receiver Devin Street was standing in the end zone after a simple bubble screen opened up a 79-yard scamper for the touchdown. ‘Statistically, (running) on first downs, yeah, we were surprised,’ Holmes said. ‘When we look at the breakdowns of the film, they usually run on first down. That’s always in the back of your mind.’ Pittsburgh’s pass-heavy attack started on its first offensive play of the game, and it continued until the Panthers blew open a game that turned into a 45-14 blowout Saturday. Thrown for a loop, the SU defense couldn’t adjust. Pittsburgh quarterback Tino Sunseri completed 17 of 24 pass attempts, finishing the day with 266 yards and four touchdowns. The aerial assault produced key third-down conversions that led to big plays. Soon, the Orange found itself looking at a three-touchdown deficit heading into halftime. And it all started from the beginning.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘Right from the beginning,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said when asked, simply, what went wrong Saturday. ‘First play. Bubble. There you go. Seventy-eight yards. ‘I thought we did a nice job responding and coming back, and then all of a sudden, it’s a wheel route. And then all of a sudden, we’re short on a route. They make a good play on third down, or we don’t separate enough.’ Perhaps it should have been expected. In five of its six games this season, Pittsburgh has started out the game with a pass play. But the volume of passes thereafter and the consistency of the game plan haven’t been seen this year. Marrone and his staff prepared for a Pittsburgh team that has accumulated 53 percent of its rushing yards on first down. The Panthers use their two-headed monster at running back — Lewis and Graham — to open up the passing game. Against Syracuse, they did the opposite. ‘The very first play of the game, they ran a bubble screen,’ SU defensive end Chandler Jones said. ‘And then they started throwing for the rest of the game. It was pretty shocking, them throwing the ball. Because they usually don’t throw the ball.’ Added SU safety Phillip Thomas: ‘We’re a stop-the-run team first.’ Sunseri attempted 16 passes in the first half and completed 12 of them, three of which went for touchdowns. The Orange couldn’t make the adjustments. SU’s game plan was to stack the box with eight or nine defenders. Safeties Thomas and Max Suter positioned themselves to stop the expected rushing attack. But Pittsburgh max-protected, passed repeatedly and took shots downfield. The run-leaning defense got exposed, frequently leaving SU cornerbacks Holmes and Da’Mon Merkerson one-on-one with the two 6-foot-5 behemoth threats at wide receiver, sophomore Mike Shanahan and junior Jon Baldwin. ‘As aggressive as they were trying to stop the run,’ Pittsburgh head coach Dave Wannstedt said, ‘we felt like we had to throw the ball to try and get them off our backs. ‘The plan was good. We executed well enough to win.’ There were big plays, like the 79-yard strike from Sunseri to Street and the 30-yard connection between Sunseri and Shanahan. And there were crucial third-down conversions. When the Panthers opened a three-touchdown lead in the second quarter, they went 4-of-6 in third-down situations. Two on a drive that would lead to the 30-yard touchdown pass. And two on a drive that would lead to a one-yard touchdown run by Lewis. ‘Pitt did a good job of three-step dropping and getting rid of the ball fast,’ Jones said. ‘That’s something we definitely need to work on.’ When Lewis powered his way into the end zone on the one-yard rush, it was not the norm. Lewis and Graham combined to rush 13 times in the first half, while Sunseri attempted 16 passes. By that time, the Pittsburgh routine was out the window. So was the game. And no one saw it coming. ‘They just executed better than we did on defense,’ Holmes said. ‘There were certain drives where you could see the defense executed, and we played with them. But on certain ones, we just didn’t execute.’ bplogiur@syr.edu Published on October 15, 2010 at 12:00 pm read more

WBB : SU preps for 3rd round of WNIT with title aspirations

first_img Published on March 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjr Comments Jim Crowley started his postgame press conference Monday by saying he didn’t think Syracuse should be playing in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. Crowley, St. Bonaventure’s head coach, thought the Orange didn’t belong on the same postseason court as his team.‘We played a pretty good schedule, we’ve seen a lot of teams that are in the NCAA tournament, and this team belongs there,’ Crowley said after his Bonnies suffered a 63-50 defeat to SU in Monday’s second-round game. ‘There’s not even a question.’But Syracuse is relegated to the WNIT for the third consecutive season. A year ago, the Orange won three games before losing in the quarterfinals to Michigan. To get back to the quarterfinals in 2011, Syracuse (24-9) will have to defeat Eastern Michigan (24-12) on Thursday in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. The Eagles advanced to the third round of the tournament by defeating Michigan and UNC-Wilmington in the first two rounds.As far as Crowley is concerned, Syracuse is the favorite to take the entire tournament. The Orange is the only Big East team in the field. Not only did that conference put a NCAA women’s tournament record nine teams in the field this year, but those nine teams went 9-0 in the first round.Syracuse beat three of those teams. And SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said despite the disappointment of being left out of the NCAA tournament, his Orange team is going at the WNIT with full effort.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘They’ve really been getting after it, so I give a lot of credit for not just throwing the towel in and saying, ‘It’s over. Let’s go to Spring Break. Let’s get out of here,” Hillsman said. ‘They didn’t do that. They stayed here, they worked hard.’The Orange entered the WNIT playing well, too, winning six of its last eight. The two losses came to No. 1 Connecticut and to No. 23 Georgetown by one point in the Big East tournament — a game that could have put SU on the right side of the bubble if it had won.Although Syracuse has come out with slow starts in each of its two WNIT games this season — trailing at the half to Monmouth and struggling to score early against the Bonnies — the Orange pulled together for double-digit victories in both.SU guard Elashier Hall said the inability to send the seniors out on a winning note last season has them motivated to do so for Erica Morrow and Tasha Harris this season.‘We’re just really excited to keep going and to do it big for these seniors,’ Hall said.The biggest advantage the Orange has over many of the mid-major schools it faces in the NIT is size. Crowley said he knew St. Bonaventure couldn’t match up with SU’s 6-foot-4 center Kayla Alexander. The Bonnies’ tallest starter is just 6-foot-1.Eastern Michigan’s tallest starter is 6-foot-1 as well. The Eagles feature two centers off the bench who are 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-4, but neither plays more than a handful of minutes on average.St. Bonaventure held Alexander in check, limiting her to just 12 points. But that effort to defend in such a height mismatch wore the Bonnies down.‘I give that credit to Syracuse and to the discipline their players have and to the really, really good job their coaching staff has done of playing into what they’re very good at,’ Crowley said.When Syracuse played into what it was good at Monday, it dominated. Iasia Hemingway posted a career-high in rebounds with 17, and Alexander got to double figures in the scoring column. On defense, SU clamped down on St. Bonaventure’s 3-point shooters, holding the Bonnies to just 20 first-half points.St. Bonaventure beat Marist this year, a team that went 31-3 this season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. But the Bonnies were no match for Syracuse, and Crowley conceded that. His NIT-caliber squad couldn’t play with an NCAA tournament-caliber team.‘We battled and we competed,’ Crowley said. ‘And I feel like we probably played — not probably — we played the best team in the tournament.’mcooperj@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Why SU tennis players aren’t allowed to be roommates

first_imgWhen Miranda Ramirez arrived on campus in January of 2017, she needed a roommate. But she faced a problem: Syracuse head coach Younes Limam doesn’t allow his players to live together.After spending countless hours on the road, in practice, at meals and in matches together, Limam doesn’t want his team to have to see each other at home, too. While many teams end up sharing apartments, Limam wants Syracuse players to meet people outside their team. The risks to team chemistry and friendships outweigh the benefits, he said.“A lot of them are surprised at first,” Limam said. “But they really appreciate the fact that they get to experience and explore different things.”For Ramirez, this meant a roommate in a different sport: softball outfielder Bryce Holmgren. Ramirez and Holmgren don’t see each other often, but Ramirez raved about living with someone outside tennis, even if she goes long stretches of time without seeing Holmgren.Last year, Ramirez said she and Holmgren barely knew each other. But because the two had no issues as they were in season, they decided to live together this year. They used the offseason, fall of 2017, to become closer friends. They’ll live together again next year, Ramirez said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She’s absolutely amazing,” Ramirez said of Holmgren. “It’s crazy, we live together but I don’t see her ever. I’m lucky if I see her for an hour on Mondays.”Ramirez said the two frequently text during the season, sending messages of encouragement. While in-season, Ramirez said she has gone up to a month without seeing Holmgren.While Ramirez made a great friend in the roommate process, other players have not been as lucky. After next year, current junior Libi Mesh will have lived with four different roommates in four years. She said that she is friendly will all three of her previous and current roommates, but busy schedules make it hard to maintain close friendships outside the team.Syracuse tennis sometimes has two practices a day, plus weekend matches and travel. Add in class, homework and make-up work and the players don’t spend much time in their apartments.Mesh agreed with Ramirez that having non-tennis roommates has helped her meet other SU students. Only one of Mesh’s three roommates was an athlete.“We’ve been talking, but we live different lives,” Mesh said of her current roommate. “We’re not best friends, but we’re on good terms.”For Gabriela Knutson, next year will also bring her fourth roommate in four years. She’ll be living on South Campus again next year, like most athletes. Her search for a living partner prompted her to post on Facebook in groups with Syracuse students, asking if anyone was looking for a roommate.Graduate student Anna Shkudun lives with Maggie Toczko, a member of the cross-country team. Shkudun said that she and her roommate are friendly, but when asked, she couldn’t remember Toczko’s last name.Even if she’s not close with her current roommate, Shkudun said she agrees with Limam that having some time away from the team is beneficial for the team chemistry.“On the court, at dinner, in class, it can get rough, especially with girls,” Shkudun said.Players need some alone time in their own rooms, Limam said.And they don’t have to live together to be best friends. Dina Hegab and Knutson as well as Mesh and Shkudun have both called each other best friends on multiple occasions. Even if they don’t live under the same roof, SU tennis is a tight-knit group.“The chemistry has been really good for the last couple years,” Limam said. “Why change something that is working?” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 23, 2018 at 8:10 pm Contact Anthony: amdabbun@syr.edulast_img read more
