Hart acknowledges United dominance

first_imgJoe Hart admits Manchester City’s grip on the Barclays Premier League title this season has been loosened by the Manchester United “killing machine”. He went on: “Maybe we have drawn more games than we would have liked to but it has not been a perfect season – and it needs to be pretty perfect to win this league. “We have done well but we have been up against a killing machine that have kept turning out results no matter what. “It is a tough league, it’s hard to win games. Unfortunately when we do lose, United stretch that lead and it has been disappointing but we will keep going “We worked so hard to get that title we are never going to just give it away. I’d imagine from the outside it looks that way, but that’s just not the case.” Regarding City boss Roberto Mancini’s criticism of some of his performances, Hart said: “You have got to be able to move on. Everyone is going to have their opinion. “What is said in private, that’s for behind the scenes but he (Mancini) is free to do his press conferences as he feels and if he feels you are not up to it …” Press Associationcenter_img Hart has seen the Red Devils open up a 15-point lead with just eight games remaining and concedes City have been “disappointing” in their defence of the title but he also gives credit to the way the Red Devils have swept aside all challengers to put them on the verge of another championship. When asked why City have not been at their best, Hart said: “I don’t know, I’d love to know. It would have been rectified.” last_img read more

What a difference a Day makes

first_img “I looked up at him and I said, ‘Well, it’s better than the way I’ve been living.’ I got off the floor and I do not remember walking to the first tee. I don’t remember the front nine until I started coming into it.” Spieth is looking to become only the sixth man, after Craig Wood, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, to win the Masters and US Open in the same year. The world number two can also become the first player since Gene Sarazen in 1922 to win multiple majors aged 21 or younger, not to mention getting halfway to an unprecedented calendar grand slam. “I will think about it a little bit because I want to win two in a row, but once I get out on the course tomorrow I will just be focused on the round and how to separate myself from the pack,” said Spieth, who set numerous records on his way to victory at Augusta National in April. “I think as I sleep on it and wake up there will certainly be some nerves. It’s not like I’m a veteran at this by any means. “But by the time we tee off, if I can convince myself that I’m free rolling, I’ve got one of these and the other guys are trying to chase their first…. I know how hard it is to chase your first and close it out. “If we can use that winning formula we had back in April, mentally, then all it comes down to is can I just pull off the shots. It’s all on execution. I’m going to need to execute a little bit better, because mentally I think I’ll be strong enough to pull it off. “I knew that even par was a really good score starting the day, but when I get to seven under for the tournament [after birdies on the second and third] I don’t want to finish at four under, no matter where you’re playing. “I didn’t drive the ball extremely well and then when I had my opportunities, I had two eagle putts that I three-putted. So I had four three-putts today.” Johnson took a three-shot lead into the final round at Pebble Beach in 2010 but collapsed to a closing 82, while a two-shot penalty for grounding his club in a bunker on the 72nd hole of the US PGA two months later cost him a place in the play-off. “I’ve been in the situation a few times so I know how to handle myself. I know what it takes to get it done,” said Johnson, who held a two-shot lead after his fifth birdie of the day on the 12th, but then ran up a double bogey on the next. “And tomorrow I just need to go out there and focus one shot at a time. And we’ll see what happens.” Grace briefly held the lead after birdies on the fifth and eighth but dropped three shots in the next five holes before a birdie on the 15th. “I actually played some great golf and the concentration slipped a little bit around the turn,” Grace said. “I’m still happy. We all dream of this and we all practice for this, so it’s a matter of fact if you grab it or you don’t. “I’m stoked. I can’t wait. To go into a tournament like the U.S. Open, having a chance to win my first major is something special.” However, after covering the front nine in 37 to fall seven shots off the pace, Day carded five birdies and one bogey to come home in 31 and set the clubhouse target of four under par which was matched by Masters champion Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson and South African Branden Grace. Day, who finished second on his US Open debut in 2011, joint second in 2013 and fourth last year, said: “I didn’t feel that great coming out early, I felt pretty groggy on the front nine just from the drugs that I had in my system, then kind of flushed that out on the back nine. “But then the vertigo came back a little bit on the 13th tee box, and then I felt nauseous all day. I started shaking on the 16th tee box and then just tried to get it in, really. “Last year I didn’t play the round after I had vertigo (at the Bridgestone Invitational) and this one was worse. I think the goal was just to go through today and see how it goes.” Caddie Col Swatton said Day had almost retired three times but added: “He has played well in the US Open before and is playing well in this one. He just dug deeper than he ever dug before. It was really, really impressive.” Day’s performance recalled memories of Ken Venturi’s victory in the 1964 US Open, the last year the final 36 holes were played in one day. In oppressive heat, Venturi showed signs of dehydration after a third round of 66 and a doctor recommended he stop playing because it could be fatal. However, Venturi ignored the advice and shot a closing 70 to win his only major title. “I was lying next to my locker and Dr Everett says, ‘I suggest that you don’t go out. It could be fatal,'” Venturi recalled in 2011 when the US Open returned to Congressional. Day was walking from the elevated tee on the par-three ninth – his final hole – on Friday when he suddenly fell to the ground, the 27-year-old needing several minutes of treatment before unsteadily getting to his feet and completing his round. The world number 10, who underwent a range of tests after withdrawing from a PGA Tour event due to severe dizziness three weeks ago, was later diagnosed as suffering from Benign Positional Vertigo and visibly struggled during Saturday’s r ound. A day after collapsing on the course, Jason Day produced a remarkable performance to claim a share of the lead heading into the final round of the 115th US Open at Chambers Bay.

Fast reaction: 3 reasons why Syracuse lost to Clemson 16-6

first_img Published on October 25, 2014 at 11:36 pm CLEMSON, S.C. — Syracuse (3-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) couldn’t keep up in a 16-6 loss to No. 21 Clemson (6-2, 5-1) at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night. The game was, in a word, sloppy, and here’s why the Orange ultimately fell behind.1. Empty-handedThe Syracuse offense gave freshman kicker Cole Murphy a chance to show off his range in the first half, and he responded with two field goals to give the Orange a halftime lead. But SU couldn’t ride Murphy’s leg all night — he also missed a 42-yarder with the Orange barely holding on — and not scoring a touchdown turned into a game-defining problem.Neither team had a touchdown at the start of the fourth quarter but Cole Stoudt found Stanton Seckinger a step behind Cameron Lynch to give the Tigers a 10-point lead that would hold for the rest of the contest. The SU offense, led by freshman quarterback AJ Long, had no answer. Clemson’s relentless pass rush made sure of that.2. Bending, bending, breakingAdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s defense held up its end of the bargain for most of the game — with Seckinger beating Lynch as the lasting blemish on its final line.Other than that, Syracuse was able to get to Stoudt and despite a handful of spurts by running back Wayne Gallman, was able to hold Clemson’s running attack in check. The Orange had an impressive stop on its own 2 toward the end of the third quarter and forced another field goal a possession later, but finally broke for Seckinger’s game-sealing touchdown catch.3. Too friendlyStoudt threw a pass right to SU safety Darius Kelly and it gave the Orange momentum in the third quarter, but Long gave the ball right back on the very next play. Syracuse scored all six of its points off Clemson turnovers, but the three times it turned the ball over hampered quality chances at scoring a touchdown.That touchdown never came, and keeping the ball just a little bit longer couldn’t have gotten the Orange any further away from the goal line.

Football: Wisconsin starts game strong, fails to continue momentum

first_imgWhen the NCAA scheduled the University of Wisconsin football team to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls, everyone thought that the game would be an absolute blowout for the Badgers.I am not ashamed to say that even I thought this game was going to be a walk in the park for Wisconsin. Florida Atlantic is a team who ended their previous season with a 3-9 record, and was just coming off of a 42-19 loss to the Navy in week one.The first quarter of the game was just as everyone expected, with the Badgers earning two rushing touchdowns with ease. Thanks to freshman Jonathan Taylor, the Badgers were beginning the game with a great momentum behind them, and it didn’t seem as though Florida Atlantic was capable of stopping this Badger offense.Football preview: Wisconsin can expect win against FAU for second home gameWith less than 16 years of football experience under their belt, the Florida Atlantic football team comes to Madison to Read…Something changed in the second quarter, and the Badgers began to struggle a bit more than they had in the previous quarter. Alex Hornibrook was having a harder time finding open receivers, and runs weren’t getting the same yardage that they had been just fifteen minutes prior.The Badgers still managed to keep their momentum going, and their 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter quickly became a 24-14 lead by the end of the first half.It was from there that things truly began to unravel for the Badgers. Runs were yielding far fewer yards per carry, and Hornibrook was struggling to find an open receiver downfield.By now, most people would have estimated that the scoreboard should have been about 49-14 Badgers, and Wisconsin should have started throwing in the second or the third string players. I don’t think that anyone would have imagined that Florida Atlantic would have put up as strong of a fight as they did.Football: With Cichy out, Orr helps bring momentum to Wisconsin defenseThis season looked like it was going to be an easy one for the University of Wisconsin defense, until inside Read…While the Badgers managed to find their footing at the end of the game, it was clear there were still some communication errors that this team needs to fix. With only BYU left before the Badgers begin their Big Ten season, these fixes need to happen fast if Wisconsin wants to find itself in a better position than they started the season with.31 Wisconsin     Final Score     Florida Atlantic 14Post game sounds:Troy Fumagalli on momentum breakdown in the first:“Being consistent is the biggest thing, and finishing things. There really is no magic to it, we need to make it happen. One thing goes wrong and we need someone to pick it up. We’ll keep working on it.”Chris James on fixing mistakes before BYU: .“It’s little details, stepping left instead of stepping right, those kinds of things. As a crew we’re getting better every day and the offensive line is getting better. The offensive line is making our job easier, so hats off to them.”Derrick Tindall on fixing defense communication:“Obviously we gave up a big touchdown because of communication, so it’s things like that. Just knowing when you have top help and when you don’t. [D’cota Dixon and I] thought we had help behind us, and there actually wasn’t and it ended up being a big play. I feel like if we know how to play this stuff nobody can really move the ball on us.”last_img read more
