Trap goes full circle

first_img The game is a friendly which the Italian will use to assess the depth of his squad ahead of Friday night’s World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands. However, it is also a repeat of his first competitive fixture as Ireland manager when his side took on the Georgians at a neutral venue in Mainz, Germany in September 2008 as they set out on what they hoped would be the road to the World Cup finals in South Africa. Press Association Giovanni Trapattoni will complete a circle of sorts when he sends his new-look Ireland team out against Georgia on Sunday evening.center_img They were ultimately to be denied on a cruel and controversial evening in Paris, but it was there that the veteran Italian unfolded his masterplan as his fabled system helped to secure a 2-1 victory. Almost five years on, Trapattoni’s continued presence in the job remains a topic of extended debate, but he believes much has changed, and for the better, in the meantime. He said: “We have changed many players, we have changed all the squad. There is only Richard Dunne, Robbie Keane, Aiden McGeady – we have changed all the team. It was not easy. We had to choose players who were on the bench in the Championship, we have to choose players for the positions. “But now we have more players who play in the Championship, they play in the Premier League and the team has changed. We have very, very much international experience. But it is not finished.” Only five of the men who started that afternoon in Germany – John O’Shea, Richard Dunne, Glenn Whelan, Aiden McGeady and Robbie Keane – are included in the current squad, and none of them will start on Saturday. However, Trapattoni’s philosophy throughout his tenure, to the annoyance of his critics, has revolved around a system into which other players can slot with the minimum of fuss. As a result, he will expect the men who walk out against Georgia, to perform the same function as their more senior colleagues did in Wednesday night’s creditable 1-1 draw with England at Wembley. Trapattoni said: “This is another opportunity. I will show them tomorrow morning before the game what our team did well against England. They can understand only with this attitude and this performance with our quality, we can achieve every result. “England was a tough game, but we also have to realise that it will not be easy against Georgia because Georgia have players playing in Russia in the strong teams, they play in Germany, they are international players. They lost against Spain, okay, but lost in the last 10 minutes. They achieved a draw with Finland. They have very good players.” last_img read more

Lampard backs former clubs for top

first_img Press Association The former England midfielder believes Chelsea and Manchester City are both equipped to dominate the English game in the coming years. Chelsea came out on top this season, controlling the title race from the start, but Lampard expects last year’s champions City – runners-up this time – to be back strong. Comparing the two clubs, Lampard said: “It’s exactly the same. They are very much a replica of each other and the clubs I think are going to be the top two clubs for the next few years, I really do. “That’s in English football and hopefully going into Europe because they’ve got great foundations. They are looking to the future with the training grounds the academies and, with the squads as they are, I think that will be the way they will be.” Lampard, 36, has seen at first hand just how ambitious and progressive both clubs are. His career will be synonymous with Chelsea, having enjoyed his best years at Stamford Bridge and left the London club as their record goalscorer last summer. He has spent the past season at the Etihad Stadium after signing for City as a short-term measure before hooking up with their sister club New York City this summer. “Man United are probably going to spend a lot of money, they’ve got a strong team, and Arsenal are always there or thereabouts,” said Lampard, who signed off at City with a goal in Sunday’s season-ending 2-0 win over Southampton. “But from being inside the camps at Chelsea – for such a long time – and at City, I know what they’ve got. I know the quality. “I think Chelsea certainly deserved the title this year because of the way they played and their consistency level but it is all up for grabs again next year.” center_img Frank Lampard is heading to the United States expecting his old clubs to remain as the Premier League’s top two. last_img read more

Aaron Finch heapes praise for captain Virat Kohli

first_imgNEW DELHI: Australia limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch has heaped praise on Virat Kohli and stated the India captain has handled the pressure well that comes along with a job as high-profile as that of leading the Men in Blue across the three formats.Kohli was named India Test captain mid-way through the team’s tour of Australia in 2014 after then-skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni called time from the longest format. He then took over the role in limited-overs format as well in 2017 after Dhoni stepped down from the position. “The pressure of playing for India is one but also leading India is another and the way he (Kohli) has done it, so consistently for a long time,” Finch said on Sony Ten Pit Stop show on their Facebook page. “And taking over from (MS) Dhoni, the leadership, that is huge. The expectations were high, and he kept delivering. That is the most impressive thing (about Kohli).” Finch went on to speak about the on-field relationship between Kohli and Dhoni and opined that the latter’s presence behind the stumps has helped the current skipper immensely. “You see the input MS still has out on the field, helping Virat, changing angles, just small things like that…I think that shows two people who are really comfortable with each other but also with their positions,” Finch said. “Sometimes in different teams, it goes like that after a leadership change, but I think it just shows the only thing that’s in their minds is the best interests of Indian cricket, and that shows quality leadership from both of them.” He also likened Dhoni’s post-captaincy role to that of former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, who, according to Finch, also helped his successor ease into the role. Ponting gave up captaincy after Australia crashed out of the 2011 World Cup before walking away into the sunset in November 2012. “It’s something I think we’ve been pretty good at in Australia as well…Ricky Ponting, letting go of captaincy, and then just sliding in and helping everybody out. That was a very similar transition, and a similar impact,” he said. (IANS) Also Watch: Get Set Global: Assamese in UK coping with the Pandemiclast_img read more

Lily’s leading lady

first_imgOther recent shows include a performance at Tommy’s Place, a live music venue on campus, on Feb. 28. The band was joined by other USC musicians, including Tippy Balady, Ellie Williams and Cordelia. Putting in long hours, Green balances being a full-time student with touring, recording and her on-campus job with Trojan Event Services.  “[Green] has this very raw and authentic voice,” said Amy Altman, a sophomore majoring in journalism who attended the show. “She engages with her audience really well. She checks in with the audience but also is just such a captivating stage performer.” “I write a lot of my songs on public transport because I’m taking it all the time,” Green said of her songwriting process. “I’ll sing into my phone sometimes, just an idea. Or I’ll just be playing a guitar and sing something with my guitar. But those ideas will surface even after a few years, like I’ll actually make them a song with my band.”  “There was a lawn and a bunch of families with their kids setting up lawn chairs, and all these little kids running around while we were playing, which was kind of scary because they were sometimes running through where we were playing,” Green said. “At the end, it was so cute because all these little girls came up and wanted me to autograph stuff for them, and I just put like, ‘Keep rocking’ and ‘Rock on.’ I hope they all become little rock stars.”  Green said playing to crowds of all ages is among one of the band’s favorite aspects of performing, citing a show at the Trancas Country Market in Malibu last fall.  Lily Waters is performing at a free concert at the Mayfair Hotel Mar. 19. The band will be joined by USC alumnus and musician McCall Kimball, who graduated from Thornton’s popular music program.  The band signed with Lolipop Records in December 2019, paving the way for an exciting year; with upcoming singles and music videos, including a cover of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy,” Lily Waters’ identity as an up-and-coming L.A. powerhouse is evidence of the band’s unbeatable work ethic.   The band is fronted by lead vocalist Gabbi Green, a senior majoring in communication. Green, an L.A. native, started playing the keyboard and cello in elementary school. She transitioned to singing and playing the guitar in high school, a time when going to shows all over the city made Green a master of the city’s public transportation.  “I feel like some people can’t be kept away from [music],” Green said. “I think I’m gonna be doing this for a long time. I’m fully set on ‘making it,’ whatever that means. I just want to be able to sustain myself from it, honestly, but also to inspire other people.” “We’ve been getting very fortunate with shows and playing big stages,” Green said, highlighting her love of performing live. Green’s musical talents have only grown from her early days of teaching herself the guitar. Since the band’s formation in 2017, Lily Waters has performed at a range of venues including the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books to iconic L.A. venues like The Smell and Lodge Room.   The band’s name comes from Green’s own journey with mental health. At 12 years old, she wrote a diary-like book where “Lily” was someone who she imagined herself becoming after overcoming a period of depression. “Waters” comes from the serene, calm imagery of running water and is also a nod to blues musician Muddy Waters, a key influence for the band.  Along with Green, the band includes Robert Cifuentes on lead guitar, Danny Deleon on drums and Seamus Blackwell on bass. “I’m excited because I’m going to be playing some new songs off of a project that is coming out in a couple months,” Kimball said, mentioning her upcoming single, “Disaster.” “It’ll be fun to hear everything [Lily Waters] is doing.” With its soulful, gritty sound, local band Lily Waters plays music as eclectic as Los Angeles itself. Gabbi Green is more than a senior in Annenberg studying communication; she is the topliner of Los Angeles-based of Lily Waters, a band with genre-bending sound. | Photo courtesy of Red Heart Media. Cifuentes and Green write Lily Waters’ music together, creating a sound that is a distinct blend of blues, rock, country pop, jazz, indie and psychedelic rock. Lily Waters’ genre-breaking style makes its music accessible to everyone; people from various generations and backgrounds can enjoy their killer live shows and their evident love of sound. “I’m a hustler, that’s a key word I like,” Green said.  Green’s enthusiasm for music keeps her going, whether she is performing with Lily Waters or playing in Billy Changer, another band she is a part of. Cifuentes, the guitarist in Lily Waters, is the lead vocalist in Billy Changer, with Green on guitar, keys and vocals. With influences in new wave music, Billy Changer’s debut album was released in 2014. “Performing as Lily Waters is very empowering for me,” Green said. “I’ve been told that I make people cry, you know, from my voice, and there’s just nothing like [hearing] that. It’s nice to inspire other people knowing that I’ve been inspired by musicians my whole life.”last_img read more

Desko continues on offensive tear following return to field

first_img Published on April 19, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments When Tim Desko sat out four games after being injured in an assault in Armory Square on March 18, it was freshman JoJo Marasco who stepped up. So when Marasco was restricted to the sidelines with an injury of his own, it was only fitting that Desko answer the call.Something he took care of Sunday night at Rutgers. ‘I feel great and I will just take whatever I can get out there,’ Desko said. ‘I just try to play as best as I can and get better every game.’Desko scored two goals and had one assist against the Scarlet Knights. All of his points came during a decisive, game-clinching 6-3 run by the Orange that spanned parts of the third and fourth quarters.   Through the season’s first four games, Desko tallied four goals and two assists. He was making the most of the time he saw on the field. After he suffered the injury off the field, Desko’s progress was put on hold.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe missed four games, the first coming against rival Johns Hopkins. But he came back on a big stage against Princeton on April 10 at the New Meadowlands Stadium and made his presence felt.With his team on top of the Tigers 6-2, Desko showed the record crowd something to get excited about. He caught a pass on top of the crease with his back to the goal. Desko bent over and converted an underhand shot between his legs.And on Sunday, he showed remnants of that flare. He caught a pass from Joe Coulter with his back to the cage. As Rutgers defenders converged on him, Desko fired a no-look shot as he was falling down. It appeared he did not even see the net.And this time, he was just happy it found the back of the cage.‘It just happens and every time that happens I don’t plan it,’ Desko said. ‘I am lucky that one went in, or else I would have been on the bench.’The Orange is lucky Desko is back, as well.Since his return, the sophomore has five goals and two assists in just three games. Against Rutgers, with the SU offense missing Marasco, Desko saw increased time at attack. Chris Daniello had success working from the top, so Desko played from behind the net.His first goal of the game came when he scooted in from behind the net and spun in front of the goal to put the Orange up 4-0. He then set up Max Bartig seven minutes later.  Not only was Syracuse in need of someone to play behind the goal, but it was also in need of offense after scoring just two goals through the game’s first 30 minutes. Daniello was the only Orange player to score. So after the half, Desko looked to capitalize on his increased minutes.In addition to the absence of Marasco, SU’s leading goal-scorer Keogh has struggled over the last three games. Keogh has just one goal and two assists over the last three games. Desko has seen even more time at attack.But amid those question marks, it is Desko who has emerged. With Marasco’s timetable to return uncertain, Daniello and the rest of the Orange know they have someone who can get them going.‘Tim (Desko) came in and did a great job,’ Daniello said. ‘He had a couple goals and assists, and if he goes in I can go up top. We have tons of talent and different people can play.’restern@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Trojans breeze through another practice

first_imgThe USC football team didn’t waste any time fooling around on April Fools’ Day as they got back to work in windy conditions on Howard Jones Field on Tuesday.Carrying the load · Redshirt junior running back Tre Madden has been a workhorse in USC’s last few spring practices due to an injury to his classmate Buck Allen. Madden ran for 703 yards in only six starts last season. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanIt is now USC’s third week of official spring practice, with the team looking strong after Saturday’s scrimmage.Head coach Steve Sarkisian asserted that the team was a little sloppy on Tuesday and that it was definitely not the team’s best practice.“We weren’t just as right as we need to be moving forward,” Sarkisian said. “But that’s why we practice and we’re not going to turn a blind eye to this.”He looks forward to the team having a cleaner practice on Thursday.The wind was also a factor, especially for the quarterbacks who were throwing the ball into it.Quarterback Cody Kessler said he was undeterred by the wind, saying that he will use it as a learning experience moving forward.“You get comfortable being uncomfortable, and it helps you get used to playing in different conditions when you play in different places,” Kessler said.Grading the scrimmageSarkisian was most impressed with the running game on Saturday. USC ran the ball 70 times with only one healthy scholarship running back.This meant a lot of work for Tre Madden as well as junior Jahleel Pinner, who got his first carries at tailback in the scrimmage.“I don’t know if he will be a feature back for us, but he’s a guy that we know we can put in short yard situations,” Sarkisian said.Kessler also went ahead and critiqued the offense’s performance in the scrimmage.Most of the team’s problems continue to involve the timing of his throws and his receivers’ routes in the new up-tempo offense.“I need to speed up a little bit, just with the sense of timing, just knowing where guys are going to be and that’s still coming on with this offense, still learning it,” Kessler said.In an attempt to clean up some of their missed routes in practice, Kessler also said that he and Nelson Agholor practiced routes on Sunday, the team’s off day.He also commended the performance of the offensive line protecting the quarterbacks in the scrimmage.“Our O-line played really well and there were some sacks that were given up, but those guys picked up a lot of blitzes that they got thrown at,” Kessler said.Injury ReportTailback Javorious “Buck” Allen and safety Su’a Cravens were out of practice. Cravens was out with a sprained knee and Allen was out with a sprained ankle. Neither injury is anything serious, according to Sarkisian.Redshirt junior wide receiver George Farmer reportedly tweaked his knee in the scrimmage on Saturday, but came back and looked fine in practice.last_img read more
