10 months agoTalking Tactics: Solskjaer’s risky Man Utd; Puel Leicester sack; Fernandinho irreplaceable

first_imgTagsOpinionAbout the authorAlex Keble FollowShare the loveHave your say Talking Tactics: Solskjaer’s risky Man Utd; Puel Leicester sack; Fernandinho irreplaceableby Alex Keble10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool went four points clear at the top of the Premier League table after Crystal Palace’s shock win against Manchester City. Roy Hodgson’s side exposed some emerging issues in the City midfield and defence, tactically outclassing his opponent on Saturday to put Jurgen Klopp’s team firmly in control of the title race.Elsewhere Ole Gunnar Solskjaer emphasised risk-taking as Manchester United found a fluency and tactical coherence that has been lacking all season. They are still eight points off fourth, but after such a dominant performance Champions League qualification is not unthinkable. Here are three things we learnt from the weekend action:1) Ranieri-style Leicester win shows Puel isn’t the right fit for the clubIt might seem harsh to highlight Claude Puel’s unsuitability to the Leicester job immediately after a 1-0 win at Chelsea, but the manner of their performance should be a wake-up call to the board. Holding just 28% possession and breaking forward quickly, Leicester were forced to play in the counter-attacking style that has become the ‘Leicester way’ ever since their title win. Puel’s desire to play patient possession football hasn’t sat well with the fans or certain players; after Saturday, it’s easy to see why.Chelsea are becoming increasingly jaded, and at Stamford Bridge they struggled to find any rhythm. Leicester’s narrow, compact shell meant Jorginho was consistently forced to spread the ball out wide (rather than cut incisive balls through the middle) for the wingers to attempt crosses (36 in total, their highest tally of the season). It was classic Leicester: deny space in the middle, force long balls into the box, and – with Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire in defence – head everything clear.On the counter, Jamie Vardy came to life after a difficult season adapting to Puel’s tactics. James Maddison also looked freer, breaking into space behind Jorginho to set up the winner with a neat assist. It’s clear that Leicester have the personnel – and the desire – to play in a very different philosophy to the one their current manager preaches.2) Narrow front three helps United play high-tempo attacking footballOle Gunnar Solskjaer’s first game in charge of Manchester United was easy enough, but nevertheless he deserves credit for unshackling the players; they had clearly been told to get the ball forward quickly, keep it moving at high speed, and take plenty of risks in possession. The sight of Victor Lindelof playing a one-two and galloping deep into the Cardiff half summed up the new attitude.Tactically speaking, the biggest change was in the positional play of United’s front three. Marcus Rashford dropped off the front while Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial moved infield from the wings, with all three players regularly combining in the number ten space. Such narrowness, and positional fluidity, pulled Cardiff’s defence out of position – most notably in the move for United’s third goal.There will be tougher challenges ahead, but Solskjaer clearly understands the club’s history and the players’ desire to play expansive attacking football. That should ensure his tenure is a successful one.3) Fernandinho is irreplaceable as John Stones is exposed by PalaceMan City seemed to have unlimited strength in depth, and yet on Saturday they were beaten primarily because John Stones could not deputise successfully for the injured Fernandinho. The Brazilian is a clever player defensively, but more importantly has a rare agility for a defensive midfielder. This allows City to play in a very wide formation, because Fernandinho can rapidly change direction and recover the ball.Stones clearly isn’t the most mobile of footballers, making him a strange choice to start in central midfield on Saturday. He was turned in the build-up to the first two Palace goals, first by failing to make a strong enough tackle on James McArthur and then losing control of the midfield battle as Palace won a freekick (from which Andros Townsend scored). Fernandinho’s injury could mean he misses the Leicester City match on Boxing Day – which is a major boost for Liverpool. Just like Palace, it is easy to imagine Leicester’s Maddison and Vardy countering around the flat-footed Stones.Best of the Week – Hodgson’s use of SchluppCrystal Palace’s performance in their victory over Man City was fairly typical of Roy Hodgson’s time in charge of the club, although there was one big difference: Jeffrey Schlupp played in central midfield for perhaps the first time in his career. He added pace and directness in the centre, allowing Palace to counter-attack against John Stones rather than out wide. Schlupp’s impact was most obvious in his equalising goal, but Hodgson’s selection also indirectly played a hand in Palace’s second and third. By adding Schlupp into the middle, switching from 4-4-2 to 4-5-1, Hodgson had to move Andros Townsend out to the right wing. His cutting inside from the right sucked Man City inwards, helping Aaron Wan-Bissaka isolate Fabian Delph – as he did in the build-up to Palace’s match-winning penalty.Worst of the Week – Everton’s defendingConfusion across the back four defined Everton’s 6-2 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday. They failed to track Spurs’ runs properly, communicating badly and clearly struggling with Marco Silva’s high line.But more important was the lack of pressure on the Spurs midfielders. Mauricio Pochettino instructed his team to play lots of long balls in behind Everton’s high line, and this worked primarily because Everton’s midfield didn’t close down quickly enough. Christian Eriksen was given the freedom of Goodison Park – and that can only end in one team winning. last_img read more

Pradhan hands 7 croreth LPG connection under PMUY

first_imgNEW DELHI: Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan on Friday handed over the 7 croreth LPG connection under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY). Under the scheme, deposit-free LPG connections are provided to poor households and the connections are released in the name of adult women.The scheme was launched on May 1, 2016, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an initial target of 5 crore, which was later revised upward to 8 crore connections.

As per recent data, 82 per cent Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana beneficiaries are going for refilling their cylinders and average refilling is about 6.5 cylinders per beneficiary. Congratulating the women beneficiaries, Pradhan said that they have been the main driving force behind this accomplishment. He said that the Government has not only provided connections to the poor but also distributed happiness to them.

Louisville vs Kent State Postgame Quotes

first_imgStory Links (About [Christen] Cunningham scoring) “He’s a good player and he’s one of those glue guys who played really well tonight for them, but they had a lot of guys play well. I think their team, I’ve watched them a couple of times now, I think they’re growing as a group and getting more comfortable. They have a lot of new faces and guys in different roles than they were in last year and I’m sure Chris would say they’re getting better as they move along. He was certainly one of those guys who played well today.”  (On Louisville being better than what he thought) “No, they’re what I thought they were. When I watched them on film, I thought they were an NCAA tournament caliber team. When you play against them, they’re physical, they’ve got some length up front. They’ve got an elite player (Jordan Nwora), who I know didn’t play great tonight, but he’s an elite player. He hit two huge threes, back-to-back in the first half which gave them separation. They do a lot of things that good teams do. To me in the first half, and I’m disappointed for how we played in the first half, but they did a really good job making it difficult for us to score. It was their defense. Ball pressure, physicality, not allowing the ball to get by guys, keeping it in front and forcing contested shots, keeping us off the foul line. They did a good job with that in the first half. They guarded us more physically than anybody we played this year.” (On last minute adjustments before the end of the non-conference schedule) “I don’t know if it’s clean up. You are always in that mode, whether you are preparing for someone or not. But, we’ll address some things we haven’t had to utilize, so our zone offense hasn’t been seen in the last four or five games because nobody’s played zone. We really have to sharpen that up, for us, not for anyone else or for any future opponent. And, we have to do some defensive things that I am not going to publicly talk about.” (On not relying too much on Jordan Nwora) “My thing with Jordan is just taking good shots. There’s times when a guy gets on a roll and you want to run plays for him, you’re going to highlight him on the scouting report. His looks are going to be a lot more difficult, but I think for the most part, our shot selection is getting better. Our turnovers tonight were cut down. That happens in basketball. There’s going to be times where the team does a great job in scouting and doesn’t score as much. We have other talented players that can pick up the slack.” (On number of shots Christen Cunningham takes) “Not really, I want him to be aggressive and I thought he was. Good point guards do what the game tells them. If people collapse, then he’ll spread it out. He does a great job, I think a couple times he didn’t quite honor the ball screen, he got all the way to the rim. It’s really fun to coach CC because it’s like I’m coaching a 35-year-old veteran out there and that’s a luxury that a lot of college coaches don’t have.”  (About holding teams to under 45 percent and UofL shooting 65 percent) “I was disappointed from our perspective and where we were defensively. We weren’t locked in as we needed to be, but at the same time you got to give them credit. They made shots. They made plays for each other. They competed at a high level and that’s why they were playing as well as they were.” (On defending off turnovers) “A few dead ball turnovers, and those you don’t have to worry about defending. I was just glad that our turnovers were kept to a minimum against a team that relies on them and pressures. They were virtually pressing from the 12-minute mark on down, and for us to do what we did, we didn’t quite convert every time, but I thought we got the shots that we wanted. We missed a few around the rim as usual.” (On defending Jaylin Walker) “A lot, he and (senior guard) Jalen Avery. Those are the two horses for them. It goes against your pack-line principles when you start to say, “Let’s deny him the ball,’ and that’s what we tried to do the last four or five minutes of the game. They ultimately took him out or maybe he fouled out, I’m not sure, he wasn’t in there in the very end. When you choose to deny someone the ball, you start to get very spread out, and that opens up the lane for drives, post-ups, slips to the rim. It never got to the point where the deficit was so intense that we thought this could be a one or two possession game down the stretch, but after he hit that last one, we tried to deny him the best we could.” Kent State Head Coach Rob Senderoff(Opening Statement) “Louisville’s got a really good team, playing very hard. Disappointed how we came out in the first half, it was uncharacteristic of our team, in the second half we competed much better. Hats off to them for the team they have and the program that they have.”center_img (About the slow start) “It’s hard to say why we got off to a bad start. I’m sure Louisville had a lot to do with that, in fact I know they did. But it’s disappointing that we didn’t play as well in the first half as we did in the second half, or even compete as hard, that’s really more than play well. That was disappointing, but again give Louisville credit, and give Chris [Mack] and his group credit. They had a lot of guys, their secondary guys who are really good players too really played well tonight and that’s why they won.” (On team offensive performance in first half) “Pretty good, and I want to go back to the other side of the ball too, because I thought that was as good as we’ve played on both ends of the floor. We got stops, the last two four-minute wars were our best in the game to where we got the separation and from that point it was really an even game, but I don’t know if it would have been, even had Jaylin not hit those shots in the second half. I thought our play in the last eight minutes of the first half was indicative of who we can be.” (On Dwayne Sutton’s season-high 16 points) “Their — what you call ‘role guys’ or ‘secondary guys’ — they all played well tonight. They didn’t miss open shots, they got to the paint, they defended at a high level and they took us out of what we wanted to do in the first half. I’ll watch the film, but in watching it live, it was some of it where we couldn’t get to spots on the floor because of them.” (About [Jaylin] Walker’s second half) “Yeah, he’s an elite scorer and a really good player. We were able to get him some good looks. Once he starts feeling it, he’s able to make some tough ones too, which I’m sure he did.” (On balanced scoring) “Obviously, (junior forward) Dwayne (Sutton) and (graduate guard) CC (Christen Cunningham), and (sophomore forward) Malik (Williams) had his really good game for us offensively. My bigger concern, and it hasn’t been a concern with this team, is sharing the ball. So often, teams fight themselves—don’t want to make the extra pass, that’s not a sign of our team. That’s really fun to coach that when guys are hitting the open man. The go-to guy for us is the guy that’s open. We have to make decisions and find that guy. So, we’re going to have nights where (sophomore forward) Jordan (Nwora) scores a lot, we’re going to have nights where other guys pick up the slack because they put so much attention on Jordan, which I thought they did tonight. And, I thought we were very balanced offensively tonight.” (On playing inside-out basketball) “It was a little awkward game offensively, especially in the second half, because they chose to trap a lot, whether that was the post, whether that was as we were bringing the ball up, first pass. But again, to have 10 turnovers against that, I thought, kudos to our guys for being strong with the ball and making the right decision. I thought we got the ball in the lane as much as we could. We drew some fouls and got to the free throw line as many times as we did. I think we’re getting better with getting the ball in the paint, making decisions from there.” Louisville Head Coach Chris Mack (Opening Statement) “I keep saying it over and over, but we beat a really good team today in Kent State. I thought our team defended at a really high level, minus maybe the first few minutes of the game. I will say this that there are sometimes where you do everything you can defensively and a guy hits shots that you have no control of defending. You see it all the time at the next level, but rarely do you see it at this level, and (senior guard) Jaylin Walker, some of the circus shots that he hit at the end of the game made the margin a bit closer than I really thought it was. I thought our guys played well. We did a great job against a pressure defensive team of keeping our turnovers down. We had 10 turnovers for the game. That was a big point of emphasis all week, and I feel really good about what our team accomplished today against one of the best teams in the MAC. I’ve known (Kent State head coach) Rob (Senderoff) for a long time. I think this is his most talented team, so we’re excited with the win and we’re going to continue to get better and it’s great that we have a few days off and not an opponent here in a couple days.” (On believing that Louisville is an NCAA tournament team) “I do but I mean there’s a lot of games to be played. But I look at that and that to me looks like an NCAA tournament team. In the games they’ve lost, they’ve played well. I look at that and see an NCAA tournament team. They’re playing these non-conference games that are difficult will end up helping them because they’ve played a good schedule. They have toughness for sure.” Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
