While the Reds look certain to end their painful 30-year wait for the title, Klopp is remaining grounded about the situation and has been quick to rubbish any comparisons to some of the great English teams of the past. center_img City swept Arsenal aside at the Etihad in their first game back (Picture: Getty)The German predicts the likes of City, United and Chelsea will all be ready to provide stiff competition next season, with the Premier League stronger than it ever has been among the top teams.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘I don’t think it is possible to dominate anymore, to be honest,’ the Liverpool head coach said ahead of this weekend’s Merseyside derby.‘United had a pretty good combination, with an exceptional manager with a super eye for players and fantastic timing for how long you need a player in the team.‘The replacements he [Ferguson] got were always exceptional — and there was the money, too. The combination for United was really good. We must have done something right, obviously, until now. But we have to do these things — and probably even more — to stay successful.‘And believe me, the others will not stop. United will strike back and Chelsea are on the front foot in the transfer market while no-one else has done anything because the times are so uncertain.‘And when I saw Manchester City beat Arsenal, I asked how is it possible we have 22 more points than them?’ Ancelotti’s side play host to Liverpool at Goodison Park on Sunday evening (Picture: Getty)Liverpool will be confident of extending their lead over City with a victory over bitter rivals Everton on Sunday but Carlo Ancelotti insists his side are 100 per cent focussed for the clash. ‘We know that on Sunday we are going to play a very important game, so now we can say we have a 100 per cent focus,’ the Everton manager said. ‘The players improved their aerobic conditions a lot since we started to have open training on the full pitch and in the past ten days made a lot of progress.’More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsOn Everton choosing to train at Goodison Park ahead of the match, Ancelotti said: ‘It was organised to give the players the feeling of being at Goodison Park without the crowd. To check the pitch, with the new grass.‘It was a good training session and the intensity of the game was good. ‘We have to improve but we are using this week to do that and prepare the team as best as possible.’Follow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Syracuse dominates possession in 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh

first_img Published on October 5, 2012 at 1:55 am Contact Josh: jmhyber@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ Head coach Phil Wheddon shook his head and gritted his teeth. He asked the official how he could have missed an obvious foul. He told his Syracuse players they were “unlucky” for the through balls that went a bit too far.Jackie Firenze shook her head, showing her disappointment after a few misplaced passes. Jenna Rickan hit the crossbar. Firenze hit a post as well.A frustrating night ended in relief for the Orange (8-4-2, 5-1-1 Big East) as the team defeated Pittsburgh 2-0 in front of 338 at SU Soccer Stadium. Freshmen Erin Simon and Firenze scored for the Orange in support of goalkeeper Brittany Anghel’s fourth shutout of the season. SU’s offense outshot the Panthers 22-5 and won the possession battle but looked tired and irritated during the game.“I actually said to the fourth official, ‘this is one of those games where you outshoot the opponent and they come away with a one-nil victory because you mess up at the back,’” Wheddon said.Syracuse earned its eighth victory of the season with three games to play, surpassing its total of seven in 2011.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That’s massive,” Wheddon said. “…We haven’t been able to put together three or four consistent performances at home and I think we’ve done that and I’m really pleased.”But Thursday night’s victory wasn’t flawless.Rickan’s shot off the crossbar came twenty minutes into the match, as the SU team peppered Panthers goalkeeper Nicole D’agostino with shots from beyond the 18-yard box. Wheddon and the team noticed the Panthers defense dropping its back four every time the Orange gained possession.Syracuse had time to create and shoot. Rosina Callisto took several shot attempts from far out, but they all sailed either wide or high above the cage.“I thought our shooting was actually pretty poor,” Wheddon said. “We had what, 20 shots? Very few were on target. You wouldn’t think that we worked on finishing all week. I’m glad we put two away in the second half, but honestly it could have been more.”Callisto agreed.“There was a lot of space, so we tried to take the shots that we saw,” she said. “Unfortunately we were forcing it a little bit too much. So as the course of the game went on we started to connect more up top and it ended up resulting in two goals.”Going into halftime, SU had 14 shots compared to just three for Pitt.It wasn’t until the 77th minute that Simon finally broke through. After a controversial no-call on Pitt, Callisto fired another long-distance shot. A rebound bounced to Simon, whose shot edged the crossbar and bounced downwards into the net.“Erin is one of those players that’s a nightmare to play against,” Wheddon said. “She’s just like one of those energizer bunnies that doesn’t stop running, doesn’t stop moving and hustling.”Wheddon stuck with Firenze even though, as he said, she struggled with connecting passes. The move paid off as the midfielder scored on a chip shot with just over five minutes remaining, sealing the victory for the Orange.“Performance wasn’t so great from me tonight, but I am happy that I finished with a goal and that’s a good thing for the team,” Firenze said.Though Firenze and SU certainly didn’t play their best soccer, the final result is all that matters for a program on the rise.“I know that this is a team that’s going to work through no matter what, and that’s shown,” Firenze said. “Once we start winning we don’t give up, and I think that quality of our team is going to help us really go far.” Commentslast_img read more

USC opens up new office in New York City

first_imgUSC recently opened its first office in New York City, hoping to enhance the university’s presence on the East Coast and attract more donations.“The New York office is responsible for creating a more visible presence for USC in New York and throughout the northeast region, and establishing support, including philanthropic support, for the university’s strategic goals and objectives,” Albert Checcio, senior vice president of university advancement, and Courtney Surls, vice president for development of university advancement wrote in an email.The office will handle general issues regarding USC and its East Coast presence, spanning from alumni relations to student affairs.Receiving philanthropic support from USC alumni has become a priority for the university, and this office was created largely to help achieve their fundraising goals, Checcio and Surls wrote.“We have two primary responsibilities in the New York office. One is to assess the broader regional needs to build the visibility of the university and make recommendations to that end,” said Maria Watson, the new executive director of the New York office. “The second is to leverage significant philanthropic support from individuals for the future initiatives of USC.”The university hopes these donations will assist students in the long-run.“The new resources will positively impact and improve almost every aspect of campus life — from more scholarships for students, to new buildings and facilities, and to recruitment of leading faculty and researchers,” Checcio and Surls wrote.Currently, the office is fairly small, with a staff of three.As USC’s first office in New York City, the new regional office has been charged with making USC’s presence prominent in the northeast.“The Trojan Family is quite strong in New York City,” Watson said. “There are 4,000 alumni and potential donors that live or work in New York City alone, and there are approximately 16,000 alumni who live in the northeast. This office will be working to engage that group of people,” Watson said.Students are generally excited by the opportunities presented by the new office.“I will most likely go to New York after college to work, so it’s good that they’ve opened this office [so I can] maintain this connection to the school,” said Adam Nusbaum, a freshman majoring in business administration.USC has comparable offices in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, as well as around the globe, in countries including China, Japan, India and Mexico. The university is also planning to open a San Francisco office later this year, according to Checcio and Surls.Since its opening, the office has invited the USC Alumni Club of New York’s board to its office for a gathering. Additionally, a series of events to commemorate the opening is planned for the coming months, according to Watson.Checcio and Surls were not willing to comment about the cost of the new office.last_img read more
