Leicester to block Iheanacho’s loan move

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Foxes attack Burnley EPL: Vardy primed for another prolific season after brace at West Brom EPL: Underdogs tackle Leicester City Leicester is set to reject offers for striker Kelechi Iheanacho, according to The Telegraph. Crystal Palace and Villa have been linked with the forward over a January loan switch, but Brendan Rodgers plans to keep the forward at the club. Iheanacho has forced his way into the Leicester side recently, despite being hauled off against Norwich at the weekend before half-time after an incident which enraged the Canaries players and fans. However, despite appearing little last season, Rodgers does see a future for him at the club, and wants to keep him as backup to Jamie Vardy. This means a loan move away from the club in January is fairly unlikely unless Leicester bring someone else in. Villa are in need of a striker, but Iheanacho’s goal record seemingly isn’t the best on the face of it. Therefore, Villa should really be looking elsewhere to sign a striker this January.Tags: Brenda RodgersJamie VardyKelechi IheanachoLeicester Citylast_img read more

Corcoran: Wisconsin athletics no longer a one-trick pony

first_imgEverything is bigger in Texas, and that certainly holds true for the stakes when the Wisconsin football team travels to the Lone Star State in August to take on Louisiana State University.But even back in Madison, Wisconsin Athletics is taking a page out of the Texan playbook and going big.As a new group of athletes prepare to come to Wisconsin this fall for their respective sports, and the new class of freshmen prepare for their first year of college, all newcomers alike will enter a Division I university where athletics are often synonymous with success.However, it didn’t used to be like this. In fact, at one point in the not-so-distant past, being a Badger was hardly synonymous with success on the playing field.Wisconsin football struggled for some time after an appearance in the 1963 Rose Bowl, not returning to a bowl game until the 1980s. The Wisconsin basketball team, which won its only national championship in 1941, is now expected to make the NCAA tournament year after year. Even the men’s hockey team went through its own turmoil in the latter part of the 1990s and early 2000s. But thanks to coaching changes and Barry Alvarez becoming athletic director in 2005, Wisconsin has made drastic improvements — and not just limited to one sport or even just to the three previously mentioned.The fact of the matter is that Wisconsin used to be a one-trick pony. Hockey was one of the few — if not the only — good things the Wisconsin athletic department had going for it for the longest time. Legendary coach Bob Johnson built the Badgers into a perennial power in hockey and won multiple national championships while at the helm. But outside of hockey, the Badgers were just plain brutal. Things got so bad in the late 1980s and early 1990s that Wisconsin had to cut five varsity sports, including baseball. The football team was underperforming and hemorrhaging so much money that those sports were no longer in the budget.However, hiring Alvarez as the football coach in 1990 not only turned around the football program but the entire athletic department. Slowly but surely, Wisconsin has made the transition from having a one-trick pony to having a horse in nearly every race.Wisconsin football’s string of three Rose Bowl berths came to a halt this past season, but in the hands of a new coach this season, the Badgers look to be in the driver’s seat to head to the Big Ten Championship Game and perhaps their fourth ‘Granddaddy of Them All’ in the last five years.As for the Wisconsin men’s basketball team, they’re coming off a year in which they set a school record for the best start to open a season and then followed that with an unprecedented run to the Final Four, the first since 2000 and the first in head coach Bo Ryan’s tenure.Things were quite good in the athletic department going into the fall of 2000, as well, with a Rose Bowl win and a Final Four berth the previous school year. But unlike back then, Wisconsin has a lot more going for it today than just football and men’s basketball. The men’s hockey team made its second straight appearance in the NCAA tournament this past year, the women’s hockey team went back to the Frozen Four. Under first-year head coach Kelly Sheffield, the Wisconsin volleyball team made it to the national title game. Wisconsin’s softball team made its second straight NCAA tournament appearance this year. Oh, and don’t forget the Wisconsin men’s soccer team also made the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1995 this year, too.That’s not to say that everything is ho-hum in the land of Badger athletics right now. The men’s hockey team did graduate nine seniors this year and lost two talented players early to the NHL. The football team lost several key members, as well, most notably one of the better running backs in school history in James White and perhaps the greatest linebacker yet in Chris Borland. In addition, the men’s basketball team lost one of the best sharpshooters in recent memory with Ben Brust’s graduation.However, through all of these changes, one thing remains the same: the success of Wisconsin sports is here to stay. By the time this freshman class graduates from this university the wins will outweigh the losses.About 30 years ago, the only thing to cheer for was the end of another drubbing in football and the start of the Fifth Quarter. Thankfully, and more so than ever, right now is a good time to be a Badger.last_img read more

Federer ends Djokovic’s three-year winning streak at ATP World Tour Finals

first_imgRoger Federer produced some of his best tennis as he beat world number one Novak Djokovic 7-5 6-2 to secure a place in the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 in London.The world number three took full advantage of a slightly off-colour performance from Djokovic to book his place in the last four of the tournament with a game to spare.Federer still has to play Kei Nishikori, who bounced back from his opening loss to Djokovic with victory over Tomas Berdych earlier in the day. Djokovic, meanwhile, will take on Berdych needing to win in straight sets to guarantee his place in the semi-finals.A battling start saw the world number three forced to save a break point in his opening service game before he found his rhythm and settled into the match.There were no further break point opportunities on either side for much of the opening set, which looked sure to be decided on a tie-break until Federer broke through in the 12th game.A forehand wide across court from Djokovic gifted Federer his first break point of the match and although he squandered the chance by netting a forehand, the world number one did not escape the second as Federer produced a delicate backhand half volley winner that spun back towards the net and away from Djokovic as soon as it touched the court. Federer looked poised to run away with the match, reeling off 17 of 22 points on his way to an early break in the second set.The curiously out-of-sorts Djokovic did prove to have a little fight left in him as he broke back immediately. But it was not enough to deter the single-minded Federer, who broke again in the sixth game before going on to wrap up the win at the second attempt whn Djokovic went wide with an inside out forehand across court, challenged in vein by the Serb.Djokovic, champion for the last three years at the O2 Arena showpiece, had not been beaten indoors since 2012, a winning streak of 38 matches.”He tactically played well,” Djokovic said of Federer. “Undoubtedly, he was the better player on the court. But I think I also allowed him to play and penetrate through the ball and dictate the tempo from the baseline.”I didn’t have this follow-through on my shots, no depth honestly, many mistakes. Basically if you play this way against Roger, you have no chance.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

Healthy Griffin Canning tosses six scoreless in final tuneup for Angels

first_img“This is something that I can come back to and watch,” Canning said. “I can kind of take all the good good stuff from this outing and kind of use it for myself come forward.” Canning struck out five — including Manny Machado twice — and he walked two. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield One of the keys for him, he said, was finding a good routine in between innings. He kept his elbow warm and used vibration between innings and he feels like that will be a key for staying healthy.“It’s just something I have to continue to manage and continue to find that routine that works for me,” he said. “Tonight was definitely a step in the right direction.”Canning, who is likely to make his season debut next Monday in the final game of the season-opening four-game series in Oakland, was not just healthy, but effective against the Padres.He got ahead all night, which allowed him to be efficient with his pitch-count.

Corey Seager making progress in recovery from elbow, hip surgeries

first_img“Every time you do something for the first time (since surgery) you’re a little guarded,” he said. “I’ve kind of got through that. It’s good to be freer and looser doing things.”Seager remains guarded in one thing. He hesitates to make any pronouncements about being ready to play on Opening Day, nine months on the sidelines having taught him lessons in patience.“We’re optimistic,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Saturday. “He’s done everything he can to this point. But until he gets into games and bounces back and plays the next day – it’s just guesswork right now.“We feel as good as we can on January 26. It’ll take until we get into spring training and ramp him up and he’s bouncing back. We expect him to be full-go on Opening Day. But we’re also prepared if we have to ease him back.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said both Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez will be available to spell Seager at shortstop until he is back to full strength.

I haven’t had any setbacks yet.”Seager said he threw 120 feet during his workout Friday, the longest he has stretched it out since Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow last May. He has been hitting off a tee and soft toss for a few weeks and expects to take batting practice for the first time since hip surgery last August at some point in the time remaining before spring training opens on Feb. 13.
