Tony Pulis believes Saido Berahino has served his time after West Brom’s transfer-window nightmare. The striker marked his return to the starting line-up to hit the winner at Aston Villa – his first goal since threatening to strike – and clinch a 1-0 victory. Berahino threw his shirt into the travelling fans at the end to complete his recovery after he threatened to down tools on transfer deadline day following two rejected bids from Tottenham. The squad cleared the air with the England Under-21 international during a team meeting this month and Pulis believes Berahino has now paid his dues. He said: ” The transfer window has been a nightmare for this club, not just for Saido but all the players as well. “When we were young we’ve all made mistakes and in hindsight you look back and you regret what you’ve done. I am sure Saido regrets the way he has handled it and the way he has played it. “He got crucified for it and in some respects he deserves it but he is a young lad and he deserves help and for people to back him and work with him. The players have been wonderful with him and you have seen today with his goal. Hopefully he gets his head down and concentrates on what he is good at.” Albion have now kept 14 clean sheets in 24 Barclays Premier League games under Pulis, who added: “It was our best team performance by a mile. I said on Thursday if we can take the way we’ve trained into what we need on Saturday we will give Villa a good game.” Berahino struck to divert James Morrison’s shot beyond Brad Guzan six minutes before the break and Villa rarely looked like recovering. They were angered when referee Martin Atkinson penalised Berahino for a debatable handball in the second half and gave a free-kick instead of a penalty despite the striker appearing to be in the area. Micah Richards also headed past Boaz Myhill but the hosts had already been awarded a free-kick and are now winless in the Premier League since the opening day. Press Association They host rivals Birmingham in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday and Sherwood insisted he can handle the pressure after the home fans jeered Villa off. “Tim Sherwood is at his best when he is backed into a corner,” he said. “I have said ‘be patient’ from the start, they have in the main but when you lose derby games patience wears thin. “I’m not just saying it in hindsight, this is a transition period and there’s going to be a lot of ups and downs. “If our points marry our performances then we should have a lot more than four. We have to take it on the chin and put it right. I can look those boys in the eye and know they are all on side and eager to put it right. “There’s no need for panic.” But Sherwood admitted his side were not good enough as they search for their first home league win of the season. “I’m being very honest when I say we deserve more than what we’ve got before but today we possibly got what we deserved,” he said. “We are going to have to dig it out.”
Freshman point guard Joe Girard scored 22 points on 7-of-22 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds for Syracuse (14-11, 7-7), which has lost four of its last five games.“Our defense hasn’t been good down the stretch,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “We got to get stops, we got to rebound to win games like this.”Trent Forrest scored 13 points, making two free-throw attempts with 8.5 seconds to go for FSU. RaiQuan Gray also had 10 rebounds as the Seminoles had a 47-29 edge on the boards.Led by Williams’ 17 points, Florida State’s bench outscored Syracuse’s reserves 41-13. Wyatt Wilkes (eight points), RayQuan Evans (six points, four assists) and Dominik Olejniczak (six points, four rebounds) were also critical in securing the win.“The quality of our depth really stood out,” Hamilton said. Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — MJ Walker took an elbow to his lip and missed a large chunk of the game. But 12 stitches later, numb around his mouth, Walker’s shooting spoke volumes.Walker scored 16 points, including five 3-pointers, as No. 8 Florida State played without star guard Devin Vassell and held off Syracuse 80-77 on Saturday. “We were floundering a little bit,” FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. “The game was somewhat in doubt and he put us on his shoulders. He made plays down the stretch. That says an awful lot about him.” BACK ON TRACKFlorida State has only lost four times this year but each time has bounced back to win its next game. One of the main reasons on Saturday was the Seminoles’ 11-of-25 shooting (44%) from 3-point range.POLL IMPLICATIONSFlorida State is coming off a road loss to Duke in a top-10 showdown and a close win at home vs. Syracuse. The Seminoles will likely remain in the top 10.BIG PICTURE Syracuse: Buddy Boeheim, who averages 16.3 points per game, was held without a point on 0-of-7 shooting, five of the shots coming from beyond the 3-point arc. The Orange shot just 7 of 25 (28%) from 3-point range.Florida State: Won despite playing without Vassell, its leading scorer at 13.4 points. Still, 10 players scored, the Seminoles had seven steals, and they were able to shut down Buddy Boeheim, who is shooting 39.1% from behind the arc.UP NEXTSyracuse: Plays at No. 5 Louisville on Wednesday.Florida State: Will host Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The Panthers defeated the visiting Seminoles in the season opener on Nov. 6. February 15, 2020 Associated Press Williams, Walker carry load as Florida State survives Orange ___ For more AP college basketball coverage: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and http://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Florida State needed Walker, especially late. The junior guard drilled a 3-pointer with 4:19 left and then another 3-pointer with 2:36 to go — as he was fouled — and made the free throw to complete a four-point play. In a tight game, Walker’s shooting and defense helped the Seminoles win their 20th straight home game.“It wasn’t going to stop me from playing,” Walker said. “I felt good. I was still energized. I just picked up where I left off.”Vassell was on the bench but did not play. The sophomore guard averages 13.4 points per game and Hamilton declined to discuss the reason why Vassell did not play.Florida State won because of its trademark depth and defense. Freshman Patrick Williams came off the bench to play a season-high 32 minutes, scoring 17 points on 7-of- 14 shooting and pulling down seven rebounds for the Seminoles (21-4, 11-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).Syracuse had a last-second shot, but Elijah Hughes missed a 25-footer that went off the rim and would have tied the game. Hughes scored 25 points on 10-of-20 shooting and added four rebounds, playing just over 39 minutes as he returned from a groin injury that limited him to 3 minutes in Tuesday’s home loss against N.C. State.
Sponsor of the South-south Champion of Champions Tournament, Frank Momoh, has appealed to new Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, to consider sports a priority by reviving the sector.The old Bendel State that metamorphosed into Edo and Delta states used to be the hub of sports in the country through structures put in place by the Samuel Ogbemudia era in the state.But Momoh, who has been part of the drive to return Edo sports to reckoning through his sponsorship of the annual Edo FA Cup, Schools Sports and clinics, among others, wants Obaseki to return the good times to Ogbe Stadium. “It is heartwarming to note that Governor Obaseki has shown that he will not relegate sports to the background. Sport is life and life is sports so I expect him to recognise that the sector can provide jobs for Edo youths.“The governor was at the final of the Edo FA Cup this year and we believe it is not by chance that he is coming in this time when we have dynamic administrators like the Frank Ilaboya-led FA board leading our sports.“One thing we want from him is the revival of Bendel Insurance because so much revolves around the team,” pleaded Momoh who is to be honoured as the Outstanding Sports Personality of the Year Award at the Edo FA awards billed for Benin this weekend.He praised the Frank Ilaboya led Edo FA for the initiative.“It is laudable because a pat on the back helps to encourage more efforts.“I am happy that this current board started the awards and will sustain it as a way of encouraging people to do their best,” he concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Kwesi Appiah insists Ghana can still improve despite getting off to a good start in preparation for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with a 3-0 friendly win against Egypt.Despite the win, the Black Stars coach is not getting carried away after Emmanuel Agyemang Badu’s first half goal and a second half double from Richmond Boakye-Yiadom and captain Asamoah Gyan secured victory in Thursday’s friendly in Abu Dhabi.For Appiah, the overall workout by his team is far important than the scoreline the Black Stars produced at the Zayed Sports Complex against the Pharaohs.“This is our first trial game and we are preparing a team that will represent Ghana in South Africa,” the Ghana coach said after the match.“I normally don’t care about the scores, if they score 10-nil or we score 10, I don’t care.“What I am looking for is the performance. Tactically, how we defend, how we attack and how we implement our set-pieces, that’s the most important thing.” Egypt, seven-time Nations Cup winners who failed to make this year’s finals, according to Appiah are still a strong team.“Egypt is got a very good team. They had a problem tactically at the back but their midfield and attack is not bad. They have an overall good team,” he said.The positives of the game pleases Appiah though he expects his team to improve ahead of the start of the finals in South Africa.“I think this is our first trial game and it’s important that you identify things that were not going well. I didn’t see that much [in terms of the speed] because most of the time we were able to create chances through our wings.“The most important thing is tactically how you defend and whenever we went on counter attacks, how we finished our attacks. I was looking at our set pieces and how we implement our free kicks and corner kicks. I will give them seventy percent which is good.” Ghana will play against Nations Cup finalist, Tunisia in their second warm-up game on Sunday.
Ex -Ghana Coach Osam Duodu is backing Coach of the Black Satellites Sellas Tetteh to make history by becoming the first Coach to win the African Youth Tournament a second time.Ghana cruised to the final of the on-going African Youth Championship after beating Mali 4-2 on penalties on Tuesday.The Black Satellites will face Egypt in the final on Saturday and a win will make Coach Sellas Tetteh the first coach in the history of African football to win the tournament twice after guiding the team to conquer Africa in Rwanda 2009.According to Ex-Ghana Coach Osam Duodo who became the first Ghanaian coach to win the Under 20 tournament in Mauritius 1993, Sellas Tetteh is capable of winning the tournament“He is capable of doing that because he has shown it over the years, I’m really proud of him.”He told Joy Sports“Sellas is somebody who listens and that is what is helping him, all he needs to do is to focus and win the final game and make that history” Meanwhile,the third place game comes off on Friday between Nigeria and Mali
, At the beginning of February, we found out that Pep Guardiola will become the new coach of Manchester City, and after the finals of this year’s FA Cup, public learned that Louis Van Gaal will leave Manchester United and that Jose Mourinho will mostly likely come at his place. Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic said goodbye to Paris Saint-Germain and club that he is mostly associated with is Manchester United.Ibrahimovic played both with Mourinho and Guardiola. He spent one season under the leadership of each of these two coaches. First, he won Serie A in the jersey of Inter in the 2008/09 season with Mourinho, where he was the best scorer of the league with 25 goals.After that he went to Barcelona, where he met with Guardiola, but instead remaining in Catalonia and engraving in the legends, he had a fight with Pep and left the club in the summer of 2010. In just one season with Barcelona, Ibrahimovic won the Spanish and European Super Cup, Primera and World Club Championship.Champions League went into the hands of Jose Mourinho who accompanied Ibrahimovic, when he left Inter, with words: “You’re going to Barcelona to win the Champions League, but I will win it.” At least that is what Ibrahimovic wrote in his autobiography.The photo of Ibrahimovic, Guardiola and Mourinho was created in the return semi-finals of the Champions League when Barcelona and Inter played in the Camp Nou. Barcelona won with the score 1: 0, but the Inter went on with total score of 3: 2. At one point, while Pep and Zlatan were talking, Mourinho approached and said something to Guardiola.Maybe we could be watching similar scenery in the coming season, but in slightly different roles. It is expected for Mourinho and Ibrahimovic to be together in Manchester United, while Guardiola has already been named as the coach of Manchester City.According to Sky Sports, only details keep Mourinho away from signing the contract with Manchester United, while there is no contract yet between Ibrahimovic and United.(Source: klix.ba)
