Moyes hungry for United success

first_imgPerformance psychologist Michael Finnigan insists David Moyes will be even more hungry to succeed in his new job as Manchester United boss because he has never won a major trophy as a manager. “If it was a question of him never winning a title I would say ‘fantastic’. It just makes him more hungry to succeed. Before I worked with Jimmy White he had never beaten Stephen Hendry. I didn’t see that as a problem. I just felt he was learning how to beat him. And he did. “It doesn’t matter whether David has won titles or not, he will be judged on his interaction and within a couple of minutes the person will win you over. Any further perceptions are in the person’s own head.” Finnigan’s skill comes in delivering such a clear vision without seeming to. As he correctly points out, his strength comes from speaking like a ‘down-to-earth lad from Chorley’. So, he explains why golfers talk themselves into failure at certain holes, or why 36 people ran the mile in under four minutes straight after Roger Bannister broke the barrier. “Until the age of 32 I worked in banking, which made me the most cynical and hard-bitten person you could imagine,” he said. “I was trained to look for flaws and weaknesses. My job demanded a negative attitude because really, I only wanted to lend money to the people who didn’t need it. “There is a good reason why people instinctively look negatively on situations. One hundred thousand years ago the penalties for being positive were a lot greater. You might stick your hand into a bush and get your fingers bitten a poisonous snake. In this modern world we don’t need to be that negative. “There are not many risks attached to being bold and courageous anymore. You might fall on your face but you just get back up again.” It is that mindset Moyes will carry into Carrington. When he plonks himself behind his desk and stares up at a fixture list most United fans have assessed with a feeling of dread, the Scot will look at Chelsea (h), Liverpool (a) and Manchester City (a) in those first five games and hear Finnigan’s voice. “Great. How hungry are you? Bring it on.” Finnigan has worked closely with Moyes for 15 years, ensuring the Scot retains the mental strength required to keep moving forward in the most high pressured of situations. Moyes will be analysed as never before as he begins the task of replacing Sir Alex Ferguson. His first official day in the new job is on Monday. There are many reasons to be negative, not least the fact Moyes has none of the silverware his new charges have spent their careers gathering up. He will not be looking at the situation like that, though. A decade and a half working with Finnigan ensures it. “I don’t care what it is, I always turn a situation into a positive,” Finnigan told Press Association Sport. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Suarez told move would be a mistake

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has told striker Luis Suarez it would be a career blunder to leave Anfield. Press Association And Rodgers has little doubt Suarez would regret leaving Liverpool if he were to depart. Rodgers, quoted in The Guardian, said: “I know what we are trying to build and grow, so why would you swap Liverpool to go to Arsenal? “I am not sure that it adds up, to be honest. Arsenal has a wonderful history in its own right but Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Okay, we might not be in the Champions League and haven’t been for a while now but our competitors have grown around us and we have to step up to the challenge now. “Would it be a mistake for Luis to leave? 100%. The team was built around Luis last season. I made some big calls to get the team to work in a way to suit his strengths and it is no coincidence he had a great season apart from the end bit. We would love to have him to continue the next phase. “It is difficult for Luis, I understand that. If a team wants you, it can be difficult.” But with huge crowds turning out to watch Liverpool during their pre-season tour in Indonesia and Australia, Rodgers hopes a crucial message has hit home. “I am sure Luis will have seen the sheer size and status of the club, so we’ll just see how it goes. It is not something we want to run on too long,” Rodgers said. Suarez is serving a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and previously was banned for eight matches for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra. His agent Pere Guardiola told the club this month the player wants to play Champions League football and Liverpool’s prospects of holding onto the 26-year-old appear slim. But at a press conference on Friday morning, Reds managing director Ian Ayre reiterated: “It’s never been our intention to sell Luis. We’ve received 2 separate offers from Arsenal and rejected both.” center_img The Uruguayan is being pursued by Arsenal, who had a bid of £40million plus £1 for the striker rejected this week. Suarez and his representatives may yet argue that they are now in a position to negotiate with the Gunners but Liverpool will try to reject that claim. last_img read more

Fabregas has thirst for silverware

first_img The former Arsenal captain was on Monday celebrating his 28th birthday as a Premier League winner for the first time after Sunday’s 1-0 defeat of Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge. Fabregas joined Chelsea from Barcelona last summer, having previously spent eight years and made more than 300 appearances with Arsenal, and has played a key role in the Blues’ first title in five years. Fabregas paid tribute to Mourinho, who persuaded him to move to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona, promising silverware. The 2010 World Cup winner said: “I can understand the pressure he’s under. He’s the best manager and he has to get results and he always manages to do that. “With any squad he’s been with he’s always managed to get results, to get his team to be champion and that’s the sign of a real winner, a real professional.” Cesc Fabregas is targeting a Premier League and Champions League double next season after winning his first English championship. Now he wants more. “The Premier League has always been a trophy that I wanted to get in my career. Hopefully it will be the first of many,” Fabregas told Chelsea TV. “I hope the future holds many trophies, many Premier Leagues, Champions Leagues and hopefully we can start building a fantastic team that next year can fight for the Premier League and Champions League. “It feels great. It’s the feeling that I really wanted to get. It’s a special moment, a special trophy. The most difficult league in the world, so very proud.” Chelsea’s domestic duty was aided by their last-16 Champions League elimination to Paris St Germain. The Blues, who won the Capital One Cup in March, led from the opening round of fixtures and Fabregas insisted that consistency set them apart from their title rivals. The Spain playmaker added: “The consistency has been key. We didn’t allow other teams to get on top of us and to make us doubt ourselves. “We never game them any chance, really. It’s been probably one of the best Premier Leagues that a team can have.” Press Associationlast_img read more

RIDING THE WAVE: Syracuse thrashes Tulane in 2nd straight 50-plus point victory

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Terrel Hunt is a gamer. As Syracuse heads into its bye week that much is clear.He’s played the majority of the Orange’s past two games, including his first-career start, and done so brilliantly. Each game he’s completed at least 75 percent of his passes and tossed at least three touchdowns. He’s rejuvenated an offense that could best be described as sleepy through the first two games of the year.So how could this dynamic, dual-threat signal caller, one that’s done everything a coach could ask in less than two full games, not have beaten out Drew Allen for the starting quarterback job in the preseason?“I knew he was a gamer,” H-back Ashton Broyld said. “Some people just—you get tired of practicing, but as soon as the lights come on, then the intensity picks up. That was the thing in practices — his intensity wasn’t where it needed to be. But I knew that when the game came he was going to pick it up and perform.”On Saturday against Tulane (2-2), he followed up one of the best quarterbacking performances in SU (2-2) history with perhaps an even better one, energizing the 36,128 that showed up in the Carrier Dome on Saturday. He threw for nearly 100 fewer yards — just 175 on Saturday — but completed 16-of-21 passes and threw a career-best four touchdowns. He scrambled seven times for 39 yards, including his second-career rushing touchdown, to piece together another offensive clinic in Syracuse’s 52-17 win, the 700th victory in program history.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBy halftime, for the second straight week, Hunt had blown his opponent away. A remarkable first half saw him complete 14-of-17 passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns, rendering the final 30 minutes meaningless.He opened the game with three straight completions, spread around runs by Prince-Tyson Gulley and Jerome Smith. On the very first play, Hunt had a new challenge: pressure.Against Wagner, he never even saw a hand in his face. When he dropped back for his first pass against the Green Wave, he ended up on the ground. But he got his check-down off in time and Smith turned downfield for 20 yards. Less than three minutes later he got hit again and once again found Smith for a sizable gain and a touchdown.“The game plan was a lot easier and we’re just executing like that,” Hunt said, snapping his fingers.With Hunt behind center, Syracuse has found its rhythm. The Orange scored on its first three drives to extend his streak of scoring drives to 11 before SU was finally limited to a three-and-out.With Hunt, Syracuse has simplified its game plan. The quarterback said everything has been smooth since he’s taken over, from the practice field to game day, while the Orange has still been able to up the tempo.When the Orange retook possession, Hunt marched SU 75 yards in just seven plays and 2:10. He capped the drive with a perfect strike to Christopher Clark. A coverage breakdown left the wide receiver unguarded on a post route, but Hunt still fired the pass in with precision — something that wouldn’t have been guaranteed just weeks ago.His teammates joke that Hunt throws a “game day adrenaline ball.”“He throws the deep ball better than he does in practice,” head coach Scott Shafer explained. “There might be something to that.”On his final drive of the first half, Hunt faced his stiffest challenge yet. Syracuse led by 18 at that point and would have to go 85 yards in just 1:44 to pad that lead.Hunt started things off with a 10-yard pass to Ashton Broyld for his first catch of the day. The quarterback got both Broyld and Beckett Wales involved for the first time on that drive and spread the ball to eight different receivers on the day.Then a 4-yard run by Prince-Tyson Gulley turned into 19 after a late hit. Another late hit five plays later put Syracuse at the 21-yard line. He got help from Tulane, but Hunt was in range to cap a marquee drive.“Coach kept trying to slow us down in the last two minutes,” Hunt said, “but we kept saying, ‘We want to score, we want to score.’”He connected with Clark on the goal line and two plays later Smith plunged in to hand the Orange a 42-17 halftime lead. Hunt chased after Smith in the end zone to celebrate.Just a week ago, the quarterback spot was a battle. Now it’s hard to imagine that it could have been any other way.“He’s the same calm guy, he’s just not taking anything off the ball he’s throwing,” Broyld said. “He was throwing the ball, but he wasn’t really throwing it. Now he’s throwing it like you’re supposed to.” Comments Published on September 21, 2013 at 4:06 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2last_img read more
