Reading Play The Right Way – Johnson

first_imgThe legendary Manchester United defender took over the reins at the Madejski Stadium in the summer and a recent run of four straight league wins has seen the Royals shoot up to third in the Championship table.The head coach will be hoping to end that storming run in Berkshire tomorrow, at the same time stemming his own team’s spell of one win in seven games.“Jaap Stam has come in and has tried to educate supporters and players with regards how he believes football should be played,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD.“They’re very expansive and make a lot of passes. Sometimes that can be quite frustrating for English fans to watch, especially when a lot of those passes take place in your own half.“However, it’s clearly working for Reading so no one can argue when you’re being successful.”The City boss added: “They’ve got a good side that we have to respect, but at the same time I think we’ve performed better against that sort of team.“That’s probably down to the physicality of the Championship. We’ve got a lot of younger players, under the age of 23 or 24.“To get a team that is ready-made, full of 6ft 4in players, who are strong, quick and good on the ball costs millions in terms of transfer fees, wages and agents’ fees.“I keep trying to sell the story of where we are and hopefully people can enjoy that. We’ve had a bit of a dip in terms of results recently and we want to turn that around pretty quickly.”City will be backed by more than 3,200 supporters at the Madejski Stadium, something Johnson is looking forward to seeing.“They’re the lifeblood of the club and have provided us with great support already this season,” he added.“I’ve got good memories of huge travelling support at Reading and it’s great that it’ll be the same tomorrow.”City fans will be able to pay on the day at Reading at non-member prices.last_img read more

Vanderbilt struggles in loss to Florida

first_imgA year ago, the Vanderbilt baseball team struggled in the final few weeks of its regular-season schedule only to go on to win its first College World Series title.After watching his team’s poor performance against Florida in a 7-3 loss Friday at Hawkins Field, Commodores coach Tim Corbin can only hope his team is following the same formula.Numerous miscues allowed the Gators (37-14, 16-10 SEC) to pull within two games of the East Division-leading Commodores (36-15, 18-8) with four games to play. The division winner will earn one of the top two seeds in the upcoming conference tournament.Passed balls. Wild pitches. Errors. Poor defensive decisions. All uncommon mistakes for a team that’s usually fundamentally sound.“Not the type of baseball you need to beat a good team,” Corbin said. “A few too many mistakes. Some balls that got away from us.”Vanderbilt’s Phil Pfeifer strikes out his demonsThe Commodores beat themselves with defensive miscues, but their offense could not get to Florida’s A.J. Puk, who limited them to five hits and two runs in seven innings. The 6-foot-7 junior left-handed pitcher struck out 12 and retired the final nine batters he faced.“There’s not a whole lot of A.J. Puk’s floating around in this country,” Corbin said. “He’s 6-7, 6-8, all arms and legs; he’s a miniature Randy Johnson.”Zander Wiel’s solo home run off reliever Bobby Poyner was the only Vanderbilt hit after the third inning.Although the Commodores are ranked No. 10 in the country, their season has been remarkably inconsistent. This is a team that lost both of its games to Belmont earlier this season; it lost two of three at South Carolina; it lost six of eight during a 12-day stretch in April; it now has lost three of six since sweeping Missouri two weeks ago.Conversely, the Commodores can earn one of the top two seeds in the upcoming SEC tournament by beating Florida in today’s regular-season home finale and one of three games at Alabama next week. Or, if they lose today, they still can win the East Division by sweeping Alabama next weekend.Vanderbilt, Carson Fulmer shut out FloridaTo do well in that tournament and the upcoming NCAA tournament, they’ll also need better starting pitching beyond ace Carson Fulmer. Fulmer, who shut out Florida 2-0 on Thursday, is 10-1 this season.Reliever Ben Bowden has five wins, the only Vanderbilt pitcher besides Fulmer with more than four.Perhaps more telling of the team’s inconsistency is its play in the second game of three-game weekend series. The Commodores are 5-7 in those games, including a 3-6 record against SEC opponents.Corbin has been looking for the right person for that slot all season.Senior Phil Pfeifer made his third start of the season in that spot on Friday but could not get out of the fifth inning. He left trailing 5-2, allowing home runs to J.J. Schwarz and Harrison Bader.When the NCAA tournament begins the last weekend of this month, the Commodores will need three victories to advance. Walker Buehler (3-1) will start the series and regular-season home finale today against Florida’s Alex Faedo (4-1).Reach Dave Ammenheuser at 615-259-8352 and on Twitter @NashSportsEd.

Afghanistan savour tie with India that felt like victory

first_imgDUBAI (Reuters) – If there were any lingering doubts about Afghanistan’s stature as one of the most mercurial sides in limited-overs cricket, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Shahzad dismissed them in style during Tuesday’s epic Asia Cup tie against India.Having secured their place in tomorrow’s final, India fielded a weakened side for the dead rubber, resting skipper Rohit Sharma, and bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal.Afghanistan were already eliminated from the competition but appeared determined to make a statement against their neighbours, who have helped develop the game in the strife-torn nation, even offering two grounds to host ‘home’ matches.In the end, Asghar Afghan’s team departed on a high note as spin-bowling talent Rashid sent down a brilliant final over to help pull off the 36th tie in one-day cricket history.“When you tie with a team like India, it’s like winning,” skipper Afghan said after the thriller at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium as his side bowled India out with one ball to spare.“They usually chase easily. It is good for the fans as well.”Shahzad was adjudged man-of-the-match for his belligerent 124, which powered Afghanistan to 252 for eight.Opener Lokesh Rahul, who top-scored for India with a fluent 60 in his first match of the tournament, was not surprised by the growth he had observed in a side who became the 12th Test playing nation in June.“We’ve seen how much they improved as a team in the last couple of years,” said Rahul, who shares the Kings XI Punjab dressing room with teenage Afghan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman in the Indian Premier League.last_img read more

Buffalo or Buffa-NO?

first_img All Activity I think that retro probably sells a little better in hats. As far as their unis, I don’t mind the monochrome for a game or two, but the split colors in both sets look best. The Bills don’t have a bad set, it just needs some updating with the shoulders and the piping. The Bills have a good throwback set, but the helmet is way dated. They need to use the current helmet or the white helmet with the current logo/blue mask with that set. Location:City of Champions and the Pirates 8 All Activity Buffalo or Buffa-NO? Sign in to follow this   MC Buffalo This topic is now closed to further replies. Posted September 23, 2006 Posted September 22, 2006 0 Share on other sites I’m wondering about the Billls and their decision to go with throwbacks full-time. Has there been any kind of word about what exactly they plan to do in the future? I’ve seen them wearing the normal jerseys, but at LIDS the new burner hat is the throwback logo and colors (Chargers is the same way).What’s the deal? Anyone have a scoop? Thanks.
