Be patient with Solskjaer’s rebuild,Rooney urges Man Utd fans

first_img Loading… Wayne Rooney insists Manchester United need time to get back on top. The Red Devils haven’t won a Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in 2013. Rooney will face his old club playing for Derby in the FA Cup on Thursday, and he has high hopes for their future under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “It is going to take time. It is going to take another two or three years, I believe. They need to bring some players, they need to get rid of some players,” Rooney said, quoted in several British newspapers.Advertisement “It’s not going to happen [as a quick fix]. They’ve tried that with [Louis] van Gaal, with [Jose] Mourinho. “If you look at Liverpool and what they’ve done, and Man City, you’re not going to buy a team to go and challenge with them. You see with Liverpool – they’ve built that team. “[Pep] Guardiola has gradually brought more players in and his way of playing. Read Also:Rooney eager to beat Man Utd in FA Cup fifth-round, vows to celebrate if he nets “So United have to be a bit patient and try and build a team that will be able to challenge those two.

Frank Howard’s return to full health a necessity as Syracuse nears conference play

first_img Published on December 28, 2018 at 10:21 am Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturco Since Frank Howard’s return from a lower left ankle injury, one that has included a pair of second-half collapses that led to Syracuse losing back-to-back nonconference games for the first time since 1975, one thing remained constant: Howard was still not 100 percent healthy.The senior point guard’s ankle held him out of the first four games of the season, as Howard returned to the 2-2 Orange in late-November. Yet he wasn’t polished and still struggled, lacking some of his skills that developed the year prior. The explosion in the lane toward the hoop. Facilitating the fast break. His revamped mid-range jumper.“If Frank Howard was ready from day one,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said, “we’d be a whole different team.”As games and practices passed him by, Howard inched toward full health. He was “90 percent” after SU’s loss to Buffalo on Dec. 18, and was finally “healthy now,” Boeheim said the following game against Arkansas State on Dec. 22. With St. Bonaventure concluding SU’s nonconference schedule and with Atlantic Coast Conference play approaching, Howard will need to fine tune his game, which has become a necessity for a struggling Syracuse (8-4) team.“Every game’s a dog fight,” Howard said on Dec. 18, on his recovery process. “Having those type of games really helps my progression. … Any day now until I feel 100 percent.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDespite shooting 1-for-5 in his season debut on Nov. 21 against Colgate, SU’s offense saw its ball movement and, subsequently, its offense improve. In his debut against the Raiders, Howard jumped in front of passes and started fast breaks that SU normally didn’t have before, finishing with three steals.Howard added five assists, and Syracuse finished with a then-season-high 13 assists in the win.He also began to fortify the top of the 2-3 zone and became the defensive weapon he was last season, when he led the ACC with 1.88 steals per game.The addition of Howard to the lineup, despite the minutes being limited — 19 minutes against Colgate — proved the Syracuse desperately missed its top guard. Freshman point guard Jalen Carey, dealing with his own nagging injuries, showed the ability to score. But his struggles running the offense proved costly when SU lost two-straight at Madison Square Garden, highlighting Howard’s importance. Carey missed Syracuse’s last game on Dec. 22 and his status is unknown heading into its game against the Bonnies.Tony Coffield | Contributing PhotographerHoward’s knowledge of being an effective starting point guard came with experience. From his four years, Howard’s not as flustered by a double team or full-court press. He knows what to do in transition and isn’t afraid to take the ball to the basket — or pass it when defenders close in mid-drive. Syracuse’s offense, ranked 255th in effective field-goal percentage according to Kenpom.com, needed a floor general desperately in its first four games. Even if Howard was not 100 percent healthy.Four games after his return, against Northeastern, Howard stole the ball four times. On one sequence, he intercepted a pass during a full-court press, followed by another steal and quick outlet pass on the left to Elijah Hughes, who finished the layup through contact. But something was missing as the Orange struggled at times against a non-Power 5 opponent.“Frank just can’t get his legs going,” Boeheim said after SU’s game against Northeastern on Dec. 4. “His legs die. He can’t get his jump shot there. He’s running the team by moving the ball, but he’s not back fully shooting the ball.”While the shot hasn’t formed, Howard’s addition to the Syracuse offense has materialized to others. The Orange saw an almost five percent jump in field-goal percentage and 13.1 percent increase in 3-point percentage while turning the ball over 2.4 fewer times per game.Howard’s scoring ability after his injury first appeared during the first half against Buffalo. He totaled 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting, including a pair of 3s and a steal in that frame. Howard led the Syracuse offense to a first-half lead against a ranked opponent while only committing one turnover.While Howard struggled in the second half, his attacking nature was evident. He began to look like the player he had been last season.With Howard Washington seeking a medical redshirt and the status of Carey still in question, it’s even more important for Howard to return to the dominant floor general he was last season.“Now I’m at the point where I feel like exploding to the rim,” Howard said on Dec. 18. “Turning the corner better. … Feel comfortable in the lane. Finishing is the next part.”Developing Howard’s last few steps getting to the basket, including finishing, have become crucial. ACC play begins on Jan. 5 at Notre Dame, the deadline when Syracuse has to “get better,” Boeheim said.And it’ll start with Howard. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


first_imgChurch Lane in Letterkenny in all its rugged glory.A Letterkenny street promises to be one of the most festive in the entire North-West this Christmas.Letterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter is inviting all schools in Letterkenny and further afield to help create a Christmas Garden on the Church Lane.The theme of the initiative is ‘A White Winter Christmas Garden’ and students are invited to participate in a number of ways. Schools can create a Christmas window box, which will be placed in a dedicated space on the Church Lane throughout the festive period. Alternatively, students can create outdoor decorations inspired by the ‘White Winter Christmas Garden’ theme. Entries will be unveiled on Friday, 19th December and the garden display will remain in The Cathedral Quarter during the festive period. Schools wishing to submit entries can make contact via the Cathedral Quarter Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/SaveTheChurchLane.The closing date for entries is Tuesday 16th December, 2014 and there will be prizes for the winning entry. There will also be an ecumenical carol service on The Church Lane on Friday, 19th December at 7.30pmThe Cathedral Quarter originally began as the Save the Church Lane campaign. Since its formation earlier this year, the project has gathered significant momentum in its efforts to regenerate the historical Church Lane.The long term goal is to create a hidden treasure in the heart of Letterkenny for locals and tourists to enjoy. Letterkenny man Donnan Harvey is spearheading the Cathedral Quarter project and he said they are delighted that this year marks the first time in living memory that Christmas lights have been erected at the foot of The Church Lane.“We’re also looking forward to our ecumenical carol service and to seeing the Christmas Garden come to life. We believe there is huge potential in Letterkenny to create a tourist hub in the town, similar to Shop Street in Galway. For us, this is just the beginning, and we’ve seen elsewhere how small steps like these can make a big difference.“Ultimately, we want to see the buildings on the street restored to their former glory and explore the possibility of cobblestoning the street and pedestrianizing the Lane at certain periods. This would greatly enhance our tourism offering, create jobs and open up all sorts of opportunities for local businesses”. IT’LL BE ‘ALL WHITE’ IN LETTERKENNY’S CATHEDRAL QUARTER THIS CHRISTMAS! was last modified: December 4th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
