Iwobi replaces Sanchez, Arsenal loans out Nigeria’s Nwakali to MVV MaastrichtIwobi replaces Sanchez, Arsenal loans out Nigeria’s Nwakali to MVV Maastricht

first_imgThe exit of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United may have created a suitable position for Super Eagles striker, Alex Iwobi, as he is being tipped to replace the Chilean in Arsenal’s starting eleven for the time being, until Arsene Wenger signs a capable replacement.This is coming just as Dutch club, MVV Maastricht, has confirmed the loan signing of Nigeria U-20 international Kelechi Nwakali from Arsenal.According to www.allnigeriansoccer.com, Iwobi is better than the Chile international in four key performance statistics: passing accuracy, shooting accuracy, average duels won and average defensive actions.Iwobi might be underrated right now due to his inconsistent performances this term, but the winger has a shot accuracy of 70 percent, whereas Sanchez has 57 percent.The Super Eagle has completed an impressive 86 percent of his passes, compared to the Chilean who has a passing accuracy of 73 percent.With an average defensive action of one, Iwobi is better than Sanchez who has zero. The Nigeria wonderkid has won 52 percent of his duels, while the Chilean has won 49 percent.The Hale End Academy product was expected to make his 22nd appearance of the season in all competitions when Arsenal tackled Victor Moses’s Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.Meanwhile, Nwakali had to be recalled from a loan spell at VVV Venlo due to his lack of first-team opportunities, and has penned a deal that will keep him at MVV for the rest of the 2017-2018 campaign.”Last season we have already seen that Kelechi is a multifunctional attacking midfielder, who has a nose for the ‘final pass’,” coach Ron Elsen told MVV’s official website.”He returns in an attacking and dominant way of playing, as MVV wants to use it. He can get away at ’10’, but also as a winger.”At VVV Venlo he has also shown at Eredivisie that he can be of value for the team in which he plays. At MVV Maastricht, however, he can collect even more minutes of play.”We know what we can and should expect from him. That has absolutely weighed in our decision to bring him back to Maastricht.”Nwakali played 34 official matches for MVV Maastricht during the past season, in which he managed to find the net three times.last_img read more

Ishikawa makes nightmare startIshikawa makes nightmare start

first_imgKASAMA, IBARAKI PREF. – Ryo Ishikawa faced an uphill battle to make the cut after opening with a 12-over 83 on Thursday at the Japan Golf Tour Championship, the second major of the year.The third-worst score of the day left Ishikawa in a tie for 119th at a rain-soaked Shishido Hills Country Club. The top 60 players and ties advance to the weekend rounds. Masanori Kobayashi, who defeated the 19-year-old Ishikawa in a playoff at the Totoumi Hamamatsu Open two weeks ago, and little-known Hirohito Koizumi shared the first-round lead after 69s.Ishikawa’s worst round in Japan in his professional career featured an 8 on the par-4 14th hole and a triple bogey on the 17th. He also had six bogeys and managed only one birdie.“It’s all my fault, not the course or the weather,” the 2009 JGTO money leader said. “I started missing the fairways on 14. I tried not to lose myself, but things never turned better. I’ll just try to improve my score as much as possible tomorrow and see if I can make the cut.” IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5center_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMESlast_img read more

Takahashi teams up with Morozov againTakahashi teams up with Morozov again

first_imgThe pair worked together previously, including when Takahashi took the silver medal at the 2007 worlds in Tokyo, before parting at the end of the 2007-08 season.Morozov confirmed the news in an interview with RSport.“We decided together with Daisuke to continue our cooperation,” said Morozov. “I’m very interested to work again with this skater. In addition, I believe that the presence of such a master in our group will benefit my other students in the process of preparation for the Olympic Games in Sochi.” he added.The 36-year-old Morozov is considered one of the top coaches in the world. He led Shizuka Arakawa to the 2006 Olympic gold medal and twice directed Miki Ando to two world titles (2007, 2011).This past season Morozov coached Russian compatriot Alena Leonova, who earned the silver medal at the worlds.Takahashi, the bronze medalist at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, is expected to train with Morozov in both the United States and Russia.Though Takahashi had kind words for Morozov when they parted in 2008, the same could not be said about Morozov and Takahashi’s agent, Tak Ihara.Morozov blasted Ihara in an exclusive interview with The Japan Times at the time, blaming him for Takahashi’s poor showing at the 2008 worlds (where he finished fourth despite being favored to win) over a problem with the skater’s boots and for placing financial gain ahead of victory.Ihara and Takahashi declined to comment on the split at the time. Ihara did not return a telephone call on Friday requesting comments on the reunion.Takahashi enjoyed great success under Morozov in their previous collaboration. In their three seasons together, the Okayama native won four Grand Prix events, three Japan national titles, one Four Continents crown and climbed to the top of the world rankings. He also medaled three times at the Grand Prix Final. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 The skating world was rocked by a bombshell announcement on Friday, one that many thought was nearly impossible.Daisuke Takahashi, the 2010 world champion, has decided to train again with renowned coach Nikolai Morozov in the run-up to the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, the Russian news agency RSport reported the same day.center_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMESlast_img read more

TG’s Murray eyes Golden Boot awardTG’s Murray eyes Golden Boot award

first_imgTivoli Gardens striker Colorado Murray says that he will be pushing himself to the limit, in an effort to capture this year’s Golden Boot award for the leading scorer in the Red Stripe Premier League competition. Murray, who is a former Excelsior High School Manning Cup standout, leads the goalscoring chart with 12 goals, one ahead of Arnett Gardens’ Fabian Reid. Portmore United’s Javon East and Waterhouse’s Tremaine Stewart are both tied for third spot on 10 goals each. Murray, who was converted from a midfielder role to a striker by former Tivoli Gardens coach Omar Edwards at the start of the season, said that he is very determined to win the award this season. “I am feeling good to be the leading goal scorer in the Premier League, and with two games left, I need to score more goals and leave the other players behind, and so I am prepared to do that now,” said Murray. “Winning the Golden Boot will mean a lot for me, knowing that I am a midfielder and I was converted into a forward, and so I just have to give credit to my former coach, Omar Edwards, for helping me along this line,” Murray said. Tivoli Gardens have been struggling this season, and they are now in seventh place on 39 points, four behind sixth-place UWI in the race for the final top-six spot in the playoffs. Murray added that he is very disappointed that they have found themselves in this position, but he would be doing his best to ensure that they win their final two games and had hoped that UWI drop points. “I am not feeling good because my team is in seventh place, and we need to make it into the play-offs and we are four points off the top six and so we need points, and there are six points up for grabs in the last two games,” he said. “We have to depend on UWI losing their games, which we didn’t want to do at this point of the season. I just need to go out there and score some goals and help my team win and just hope for the best,” Murray stated.last_img read more

Some made the short drive to campus like Nashville native Drew Maddux, who followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Ed and father, Ray, as players to Vanderbilt.Former Vanderbilt basketball players sign autographs for fans following Saturday's alumni game at Memorial Gym.Former Vanderbilt basketball players sign autographs for fans following Saturday’s alumni game at Memorial Gym.Maddux even had his own cheering section, led by Belmont player Craig Bradshaw – who played under Maddux at Christ Presbyterian Academy and wore an original No. 45 Vanderbilt jersey to the event.“This isn’t a throwback,” Bradshaw said. “This is Coach Maddux’s actual jersey (from the 1990s), and it’s autographed by him.”Other former Vanderbilt players traveled from all corners of the country like Russ Lakey (2001-04) from Los Angeles and Lance Goulbourne (2009-12) from New York.“This is a great event because at times I think we have the tendency to forget how much talent has come through these doors and played at Memorial Gym until they’re all here at one time,” said Perdue, who won four NBA titles after his Commodores career.Jeffery Taylor (44), Class of 2012, jumps against Dan Hall, Class of 1994.Jeffery Taylor (44), Class of 2012, jumps against Dan Hall, Class of 1994.Ryan French, from Manchester, was only 2 when Perdue was named SEC Player of the Year in 1988, but he stood in an autograph line to get a selfie with his grandfather’s favorite player.“I was super super young when he was at Vanderbilt, but he’s a legend,” French said. “To this day, if basketball is being talked about, my granddad has a story about Will Perdue. So seeing him today was important to me.”McCaffrey, the 1993 SEC Co-Player of the Year, was a big draw at the autograph session after he missed the first alumni game two years ago.“I wanted to come to the first one, but I just couldn’t make it. But when (Vanderbilt director of basketball operations) Dan Cage called me this time, I jumped at the chance,” McCaffrey said. “It feels really good to be back. They still love their hoops here.”Long-time Vanderbilt fan Robert Hendon said a flood of memories came alive seeing his childhood heroes back on the hardwood.“I’ve been a Vanderbilt fan since the 70s, and I remember seeing all these guys all the way back to when I was a kid,” Hendon said. “It was so nice to see all of them, and I loved seeing Billy McCaffrey here and part of Vanderbilt again.”Former Vanderbilt basketball star Billy McCaffrey poses for a photo with a fan after Saturday's alumni game at Memorial Gym.Former Vanderbilt basketball star Billy McCaffrey poses for a photo with a fan after Saturday’s alumni game at Memorial Gym.Long-time fan Karen Austin said the alumni game is the perfect event to bridge the Commodores’ past to the present, with the season tipping off Nov. 13 against Austin Peay.“It brings the fan base together over different generations, and it gets people hyped up about the next season before it gets here,” Austin said. “We are always excited about the new players coming in, and they get to see the old players here.“We’re with Vanderbilt through thick and thin, so it’s great to see all the players from all those years.”Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

Islanders confirm that they are not changing their logoIslanders confirm that they are not changing their logo

first_imgLocation:Manitoba SportsLogos.Net Share on other sites 224 Link to post The Islanders have announced that they are not changing their logo at all upon their move to Brooklyn.This is a big mistake. The problem with the Islanders’ current logo is that the map of Long Island shows only Nassau and Suffolk Counties.It would be only a small tweak to alter the logo to include the entire geographical island, as Discogod has demonstrated. This is so well done. We can see that the S is framed by Jamaica Bay. And the I points to the approximate spot of the Barclays Center, just as the I in the current logo points to the approximate spot of the Nassau Coliseum. Casual observers wouldn’t even notice a change.A modified logo would also address the question about whether Brooklyn is a part of Long Island. For people who live outside the area, the answer is: geographically, yes; in common parlance, no. The current logo, in showing only Nassau and Suffolk Counties, reflects the colloquial use of the term “Long Island” that has been current since the 1960s. Before that, however, it was very common to refer to places in Queens and even Brooklyn as being on Long Island. Up until the 1950s, people routinely wrote “Jamaica, L.I.” and so forth on envelopes. Long Island University was founded in Brooklyn in the 1920s. (By the way, that school’s teams also play in the Barclays Center.) And Long Island City is a section in Queens; it was formerly a separate city, and was a party, along with the cities of New York and Brooklyn, to the consolidation of 1898 which created the modern New York City. So having a logo that shows the entire geographical Long Island including Brooklyn and Queens would harken back to a time in the not-so-distant past. And, more important, it would encompass the place where the team is playing. By retaining a logo that shows only Nassau and Suffolk Counties, the team is essentiall acknowledging that it is playing outside of its named home area, similar to the New York Giants, the LA Galaxy, the Detroit Pistons, etc. It’s surprising that the Islanders would do that, instead of shifting the focus to the geographical interpretation of “Long Island”, which seems like a natural considering that their arena will be at a terminal of the Long Island Rail Road. 1 4,499 4,499 Share this post Prev 26,192 Share this post 224 Share this post Go To Topic Listing 0 4,499 4,499 TheOldRoman prolix proletarian Link to post Members 9,471 posts Members Share this post Posted June 5, 2015 Share this post 1,292 Share on other sites Favourite Logos:North Stars Gothamite Share on other sites Islanders confirm that they are not changing their logo 22,644 26,192 I apologize for any decorum 745 1,585 Share this post 3,722 posts 700 0 Link to post Followers 1 745 4,499 GeauxColonels Ferdinand Cesarano THE CCSLC Nicholls St Colonels Fan Link to post Also, it’s interesting to think of a world where they never combined the five cities. It seems like the people largely have their own borough identity while still identifying as New Yorkers and rooting for the NY teams. But had they remained four huge cities next to each other (and Staten Island), would the landscape be different culturally and sports-wise? Would each borough essentially have its own sports teams? Would anybody outside the Bronx have became fans of the Yankees, for instance? I was surprised to read that close to 60% of the city’s population is in Brooklyn and Queens, which should theoretically be Mets territory. Obviously the Yankees’ storied history and the Mets’ late start play a large part of them not owning the city. If the boroughs had never combined, there might not be many more Yankees fans in Brooklyn than, say in Philly.Hmm. Interesting.It wasn’t four large cities, it was New York City, Brooklyn and a bunch of of smaller cities and towns in what became the boroughs of Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx. Had the consolidation not happened, they’d still be suburbs and still largely identify with New York City.But with no combined city, there’s no Robert Moses to face down O’Malley and the Dodgers might still be in Brooklyn today.So “New York City” at the time was present-day Manhattan?Right before the Consolidation of 1898, New York City consisted of Manhattan and most of the Bronx (then usually called “the Northern District”), which had been annexed part in 1874 and part in 1895. (Side note: even after Consolidation, the Borough of the Bronx was part of New York County. It wasn’t until 1912 that Bronx County was created, and that the five boroughs of New York City all became co-terminous with five counties of New York State.)As mentioned earlier, Brooklyn was a separate city. It was a city which had begun in the western part of Kings County (in the section known eventually as “Downtown Brooklyn”) and which had done its own annexation, eventually absorbing all the other municipalities of Kings County and filling the entire county.Queens was a suburban county with one city, Long Island City, and several major towns such as Flushing and Jamaica. The county of Queens included all of what is today Nassau County. It was only the western portion of Queens County that became New York City’s Borough of Queens; for the entire year of 1898, Queens County was partially in New York City and partially outside of it. The parts of Queens County that were outside the Borough of Queens became Nassau County in 1899.Richmond County on Staten Island was a collection of villages.

Had the consolidation not happened, they’d still be suburbs and still largely identify with New York City.But with no combined city, there’s no Robert Moses to face down O’Malley and the Dodgers might still be in Brooklyn today.I’ll just add that much of the Bronx was already part of New York City before the consolidation of 1898, owing to two separate annexations. Also, Moses didn’t so much “face down” O’Malley as ignore him. O’Malley wanted to build a new privately-funded stadium on the site of today’s Barclays Center. All he needed the City government (in the person of Moses, who was commissioner of several agencies) to do was to help him consolidate the many parcels of land into one, so that no single holdout could scuttle the whole thing. Moses, who was so powerful that he essentially lived in a world of his own creation, refused to lift a finger. He didn’t grasp the significance of the Dodgers. It was only after O’Malley had been rebuffed by Moses that he began talks with Los Angeles, and received iron-clad assurances about Chavez Ravine. By the time anyone else in the New York City government could react to this, the agreement with Los Angeles was already in place; and O’Malley had no reason to back out of an agreement with people who had treated him well, and to try again with a city government that had brushed him off. Furthermore, once all of this became known, the idea of buying all the parcels at Flatbush Avenue and Fourth Avenue became impossible. In fact, the City couldn’t offer anything at all in Brooklyn; the City’s offer was a site in Flushing Meadow Park in Queens (which eventually became the location of Shea Stadium). All of the blame for the Dodgers’ move goes to Moses and not to O’Malley, whose intention was to stay in Brooklyn. P.S. – The Giants actually wanted to leave New York; but their original intention was to move to Minneapolis. It was only after the Dodgers had signed to go to Los Angeles that O’Malley convinced Horace Stoneham that San Francisco would be a better place for his team, as that would help preserve the teams’ rivalry. Location:DETROIT Share this post Link to post 3,722 posts But they have got to do something, right? I am a big fan of the Islanders’ logo and uniforms, but they have to at least introduce a secondary logo reflecting that they are now in Brooklyn, right? I get the Niners not feeling the need to represent Santa Clara in their uni set, but Brooklyn is one of the hippest cities around. Brooklyn Nets gear is ubiquitous because their home is in Brooklyn (and because of Jay Z, but still…) There is no way their branding/merchandising team sits back and misses this opportunity. 0 Members Link to post Location:Rutherford, NJ 1insaneguy 0 TheOldRoman PUT THE BROOKLYN IN LONG ISLAND. prolix proletarian Dexter Morgan Sports Logo News 22,644 It feels like the Islanders are moving to Brooklyn reluctantly.

Stupid mistake.Again, I don’t think that factors into it at all. I think we’re thinking much more about the logo and its significance than either the team or its existing fans. As for Moses, his negotiations with O’Malley were interesting. O’Malley first suggested Flushing Meadow, then abandoned it when Moses took the bait. The Dodgers tried playing games in New Jersey to force the city’s hand, but they failed to move the needle. Then LA handed over the keys to the kingdom and he was gone in a flash. I love how O’Malley essentially negotiated with San Francisco on Stoneham’s behalf, and without his knowledge, so he’d have a moving partner.

Share this post -kj Posted June 5, 2015 1 It seems like it would be common sense to add the rest of Long Island – not just as a nod to the hipsters they need to draw the next five years, but also to keep those fans coming if and when they get booted and have to go crawling back to Nassau Long Island. It’s like if the old California Angels’ logo only had the bottom part of the state.I guess it underscores that the Islanders were culturally from the other Long Island, never cared to appeal to Brooklyn and Queens, and it’s probably a huge mistake to move there.Also, it’s interesting to think of a world where they never combined the five cities. It seems like the people largely have their own borough identity while still identifying as New Yorkers and rooting for the NY teams. But had they remained four huge cities next to each other (and Staten Island), would the landscape be different culturally and sports-wise? Would each borough essentially have its own sports teams? Would anybody outside the Bronx have became fans of the Yankees, for instance? I was surprised to read that close to 60% of the city’s population is in Brooklyn and Queens, which should theoretically be Mets territory. Obviously the Yankees’ storied history and the Mets’ late start play a large part of them not owning the city. If the boroughs had never combined, there might not be many more Yankees fans in Brooklyn than, say in Philly. tigerslionspistonshabs 4,499 Favourite Logos:Detroit Lions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Florida Panthers, Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves, Detroit Tigers Ferdinand Cesarano Link to post TheOldRoman Members Posted June 5, 2015 Share on other sites the admiral Posted June 5, 2015 0 57,915 posts Favourite Logos:Edmonton Oilers (1980s)Manitoba Moose (2005-2011)Winnipeg Jets (1979-90 and 1990-1996)Winnipeg Blue BombersWinnipeg GoldeyesWinnipeg Thunder (1990s)Winnipeg Jets (2011-present) 1,585 Link to post 1 Share this post 0 Sports Logo News OffCenteredScoreboard Hail to the Team Members Members 0 Page 1 of 2   tigerslionspistonshabs 8 Old logo for those of us not terribly familiar with the logo or NY geography: 0 Dexter Morgan 1insaneguy Posted June 5, 2015 0 the admiral It feels like the Islanders are moving to Brooklyn reluctantly. It’s like there too good for Brooklyn. Do they not want new fans? How are they gonna do that if they refuse to even add Brooklyn or Queens to the logo, how hard is that? Stupid mistake.Yes, they are moving to Brooklyn reluctantly because they tried for years and years to build a new arena in Nassau so that they wouldn’t have to settle for two-thirds of an arena in a city where their fans don’t live. I’m sure they’d like new fans, but how are they going to see the ice?PUT THE BROOKLYN IN LONG ISLAND.PUT THE ISLANDERS IN A HOCKEY RINK. 4 -kj Share on other sites 0 Members Ferdinand Cesarano SportsLogos.Net Members 0 745 Share this post 1,292 Next Share on other sites Link to post 178 Sports Logos Ferdinand Cesarano 2,215 Recommended Posts 1,585 22,644 0 Posted June 5, 2015 five boroughs, one City. 224 I apologize for any decorum 22,644 Share this post Members Share on other sites 53,285 posts 3,722 posts Ferdinand Cesarano Members Gothamite the admiral 224 Location:New York iammysticyte The Six Share on other sites 1,433 posts Well put.I don’t think they put nearly as much thought in it beyond “yeah, let’s keep the old one”, but well put.

Sign in to follow this   Share this post That updated logo of the Islanders is even better than the current logo… I think it is an excellent idea to use the entire island and really nice way to have the first S be placed below that bay area… I like that placement very much so it does show the entire island and more.. I hope the Islanders does update the logo to reflect this more soon enough…AND btw the history on the Giants and Dodgers, I often wondered about more of that but it is really interesting to see who actually was the reason why both the Dodgers and Giants left for California years ago….
