first_imgPress Association Sport highlights five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend. BRENDAN RODGERS WAS UNDER EVEN MORE PRESSURE THAN MANY THOUGHT Although talk about the heat being on Liverpool boss Rodgers had been rife for some time, the news on Sunday that he had been sacked shortly after the Reds’ 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby at Everton still came as quite a surprise. Another reminder, if any was needed, that club owners are not shy of taking decisive action when they really feel it is necessary. Press Associationcenter_img THERE SHOULD NEVER BE DOUBTS ABOUT SERGIO AGUERO Manchester City striker Aguero went into Saturday’s home clash against Newcastle with it being noted he had scored only once in the league to date in 2015-16, and not since mid-August. He subsequently netted five times in 20 minutes past the stunned Magpies, becoming only the fifth man ever to hit that tally in a single Premier League game. The 27-year-old Argentina international could hardly have produced a more bold statement about the powers he possesses. THERE REALLY SHOULD BE DOUBTS NOW ABOUT CHELSEA When the Blues beat Arsenal on September 19 it appeared they had finally stopped the rot with regard to their poor start to the season. But a scraped 2-2 draw at Newcastle saw alarm bells ringing again a week later – and Saturday’s 3-1 capitulation at home against Southampton showed Jose Mourinho’s men are far from over their troubles this term. Where their title defence goes from here – and whether Mourinho might be involved for much longer – is anyone’s guess. THE NORTH-EAST CLUBS APPEAR TRULY CURSED Newcastle and Sunderland started Saturday bottom and 19th respectively and without a league win between them this season. Both made very encouraging starts to their fixtures, the Magpies taking a surprise lead at the Etihad Stadium and the Black Cats racing 2-0 ahead at home against West Ham. Each side then spectacularly imploded, Newcastle finishing up on the end of a 6-1 hammering and Sunderland concluding their game with 10 men and having been held to a 2-2 draw. In either case, the fans must feel as if there is some kind of jinx on their club. DICK ADVOCAAT SHOULD PROBABLY HAVE JUST KEPT HIS PROMISE TO HIS WIFE Whether or not he thought anything sinister was going on, Advocaat was left in no doubt his time as Sunderland boss could not go on as he walked away from the club on Sunday. There has been a slight air of inevitability about the situation since the campaign began, and many – certainly now, if they did not already – will feel that after keeping the Wearsiders up last season, the 68-year-old Dutchman really should have stuck to the promise he initially made to his wife that he would retire over the summer. last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 5, 2017 at 12:25 am Contact Eric: erblack@syr.edu | @esblack34 The last time Syracuse played Wisconsin, it lost the two-game series by a combined score of 11-0 in the span of 12 hours. That was nine years ago, in the program’s second and third games ever. This weekend, Syracuse gets another shot at the team that rudely welcomed it into Division I.“If (the Syracuse) football team were to play Alabama, it’d be one of those things,” said Orange head coach Paul Flanagan. “(Wisconsin) just has that depth, and we’re a little bit banged up right now. But you know what, for us, this is awesome.”A perennial Frozen Four contender, Wisconsin (4-0-0) has won four NCAA championships, third most all time. The Badgers lost in the championship game last year, but were recently ranked No. 1 by USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine. The Orange signed a two-year deal with the Badgers, so the team will travel to LaBahn Arena in Madison, Wisconsin, next season. Yet, SU’s full focus remains trained on this weekend. After the Orange went winless against Bemidji State on opening weekend, Syracuse (0-1-1) is looking forward to its home debut at Tennity Ice Pavilion on Friday at 4 p.m.This week, the Orange has fixated on the chance to play the role of underdog, playing David to Wisconsin the Goliath. For goaltender Abbey Miller, there’s “bitterness” from playing with and against some of the Wisconsin team growing up in Minnesota, she said, and she believes the Badgers will overlook the Orange this weekend.“They probably have the nicest women’s facility in the country,” Miller said. “I think them coming into our rink, they’re probably going to underestimate us quite a bit and kind of look over us. So, I think it’ll be a good opportunity for us to get a win and hopefully get ranked.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn their 18-year history, the Badgers have never had a losing season and Flanagan credits the consistent competitiveness to the Badgers’ recruiting and, in turn, depth. UW’s fourth line isn’t much worse than its first, if at all, he said. Wisconsin’s depth will be tested against SU, because multiple Badgers won’t travel to Syracuse due to commitments with either the United States’ or Canadian national teams.These pieces pile up and, though Syracuse might appear disadvantaged, junior defender Allie Munroe sees the Orange as prepared as it’s ever been.“There’s a good opportunity to knock off the No. 1 team,” Munroe said, “so everyone’s excited.”As for how the Orange plans to take down the top team in the country, Munroe says that Syracuse will try to disrupt Wisconsin’s winning culture, and “shake them up a bit.”“You want teams to come in here, not just so that we can watch them, so that we can compete against them,” Flanagan said. “It’s going to make us better. I know our kids will be up for it. … It’s going to be a good weekend.” Commentslast_img read more

first_imgGuzal Yusupova walked back toward the Syracuse bench after a soft net handshake with Duke’s Kelly Chen. Yusupova’s eyes stared at the ground as she walked back to her bench, and she slammed her racket against the tennis bag twice before Jennifer Meredith walked over. The Orange’s top singles player had just lost her singles match in a third-set tiebreaker, 10-6. Yusupova had a chance to beat the No. 7 player in the country but eventually trailed off.Yusupova and the rest of No. 25 Orange (6-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) lost their match, 7-0, against No. 10 Duke (9-2, 2-1) and lost 14 of 16 sets overall. Net hit after net hit, out after out and groan after groan from the crowd. After opening the season with a six-match winning streak, Syracuse has now lost two-straight — including 4-2 to Columbia last Friday.“They are a top-ten team for a reason,” Syracuse head coach Younes Limam said.The Orange already faced an uphill battle when four ranked singles opponents and a ranked doubles pairing strolled onto the Drumlins Country Club courts before the match, compared to Syracuse’s only ranked player: No. 77 Yusupova.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textYusupova started her match serving and at 30-30, a 13-hit rally ended when she dropped a shot out-of-bounds. Chen and the senior battled back-and-forth and exchanged the lead continually during that opening set. Whenever Chen’s shots went out-of-bounds and she winced at the lost point, Yusupova responded with an out-of-bounds hit of her own.Chen eventually rallied back against Yusupova to tie the first set, 1-1, and had Yusupova running from alley lane to alley lane during a 30-all point. The senior could only respond with a backhand that flew out of bounds.When Yusupova smashed a winner past Chen and pushed ahead 4-3, Chen clenched her teeth and complained to head coach Jamie Ashworth. Despite all of Chen’s frustrations, she topped Yusupova 7-5 in their opening set.That paralleled Syracuse’s other matches against the Blue Devils, who had already clinched because of victories against Syracuse’s Miranda Ramirez (6-1, 6-2), Zeynep Erman (6-1, 6-3) and Sonya Treshcheva (6-4, 6-3). The Orange couldn’t recover from a lost doubles point, something they did against St. John’s on Feb. 4 and Boston College on Feb. 15.Yusupova battled back in her second set and took advantage of Chen’s frustrations from earlier. Slices agitated Chen, and at one point Yusupova fired an ace past the Duke junior, who had no reaction.“Guzal is the biggest fighter I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Erman postgame. “She never gives up, she fights for every ball, she’s the number one.”To start the third set, Chen took the lead 3-0 after a few net hits and long balls from the SU senior. Then, it extended to 4-0 after another out-of-bounds hit from Yusupova — who hit her racket on the court in frustration. Despite three straight-points from Yusupova in the tiebreak, Chen rebuilt her lead back to four after a few long rallies, an overhead spike and a backhand winner.By that point, the rest of Syracuse had gathered alongside court three. Duke blew past each of the bottom five singles matches with ease and ensured the Orange wouldn’t beat their second ranked opponent this season. Yusupova swung her racket back and forth, awaiting Chen’s serve.“That’s it Guzal,” Kim Hansen shouted, still trying to encourage from the sidelines.But Yusupova hit one straight into the net through with her backhand, and eventually Chen’s cross-court forehand flew across while Yusupova watched aimlessly. Minutes later, the Orange clumped together for their postgame stretching circle. Duke had successfully handled both of Syracuse’s doubles matches, all five of the previous singles and even solved the Orange’s top-ranked player.“I can promise you we are going to watch more (film) this week,” Limam said.
