Sandro expecting Sherwood exit

first_img “He (Sherwood) will leave at the end of the season,” Sandro told ESPN Brazil. “Then, new coach, new everything.” Sherwood was handed an 18-month contract when he succeeded Andre Villas-Boas in December, but that has not prevented reports he will be shown the door at the end of the term, with the likes of Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino touted for the role. Sandro, who has been linked with a transfer to Sao Paulo, is unsure what his own future holds, but says a switch back to his homeland would be difficult given Tottenham’s valuation of him. “I do not know anything yet (about my future), but I’m happy to have my name talked about with a club the size of Sao Paulo,” he said. “(But) it would be very difficult to leave on loan. If I leave, I would have to be sold, and it is not close. Other teams have come, but with little money.” Sherwood has played down talk of bad blood between the pair, stemming from the player tweeting to tell fans he was not injured on the morning of the Fulham game. ”He’s not injured, and he’s fit to play, but he’s not selected because he’s not up to it at the moment ahead of other people,” the 45-year-old said after the 3-1 triumph. ”I really don’t have a problem with him. He’s a good lad. I don’t have any problem with anything he’s got to say. He’s not being disrespectful to me, I don’t think.” The 25-year-old has struggled to re-establish himself in Spurs’ midfield in the second half of the season after suffering a calf injury in December, and was labelled “not up to it at the moment ahead of other people” by boss Tim Sherwood after being overlooked for the April 19 game against Fulham. Sherwood has opted to use Paulinho as his main defensive option in the middle of the park – leaving Sandro out of the first-team picture – but the Brazil international hopes the seemingly likely departure of Sherwood at the end of the campaign could rejuvenate his prospects in north London. Midfielder Sandro believes the arrival of a new manager in the summer could reignite his Tottenham career.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Graham joins Wolves on loan

first_img The 29-year-old has moved to Molineux after playing just once for the Black Cats this season. He will stay with Wolves until December 31 and will link up with his new club on Monday. Graham told the Sky Bet Championship club’s official website: “Wolves is a good club which has done very well over the last year and this is a good opportunity for me to try and play some regular football and get back to scoring goals.” Graham, who has not scored for the Black Cats in 14 games since a £5million move from Swansea in January 2013, went on loan to Hull and first club Middlesbrough last season. Wolves could be without Nouha Dicko and Bakary Sako in January and February if Mali qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations and have been looking for extra firepower. Loan striker Yannick Sagbo returned to Hull this week after failing to score in four games. Wolves are ninth in the Championship and head coach Kenny Jackett believes Graham can help their promotion push. “We feel this is a very good move for us,” said Jackett, to the club’s official site. “He has the goalscoring record that we are looking for and experience of playing up front in the Championship. “With our forward line he brings another dimension now with his experience and goalscoring record. “We look forward to him starting with us on Monday morning and working with the squad towards the Nottingham Forest game.” Press Associationcenter_img Wolves have signed Sunderland striker Danny Graham on loan until the end of the year.last_img read more

Arsenal hold on to beat Palace

first_img The Gunners went ahead through an early penalty from Santi Cazorla following a trip by Pape Souare on Danny Welbeck, which the Palace bench protested had been just outside the area. Referee Mark Clattenburg and his assistant were central to another big call on the stroke of half-time when Welbeck was waved onside and Olivier Giroud netted a second from the rebound after the England forward’s shot had been blocked. Coquelin eventually went into the notebook for a late trip on Campbell as the match continued to be played with plenty of positive aggression. Arsenal doubled their lead on the stroke of half-time. Alexis Sanchez played a perfectly-weighted pass into the left side of the penalty area for Welbeck, who was adjudged onside as he ran across the Palace backline. The England forward sent in a low, angled drive, which Speroni palmed out and Giroud was alert to get to the loose ball ahead of three defenders to stab home his 50th Arsenal goal. Palace looked to make a positive start to the second half, and pushed Arsenal back as Wilfried Zaha caused problems down the right channel, forcing a string of corners before a looping header from Mesut Ozil dropped onto the top of the crossbar. The German, who has returned from a knee injury a much stronger player, broke away on 57 minutes and fed Sanchez on the overlap down the left. Arsenal’s leading scorer burst into the box and then stabbed the ball just wide of the far post, when both Welbeck and Giroud were screaming for a pass. Palace were forced into a change when Campbell limped off with what looked like a hamstring problem and was replaced by Yannick Bolasie. There was a stoppage when David Ospina went down a few minutes after the goalkeeper had come racing out of his penalty area to jump over Per Mertesacker and head a long ball clear. After some treatment for what appeared to be a back problem, play continued. Palace continued to push Arsenal back, as Dwight Gayle sent a bullet header just over before Jason Puncheon’s 20-yard free-kick curled just wide. With 15 minutes left, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, whose side host Monaco in the Champions League next week, looked to shore up the side as defender Kieran Gibbs came on for Welbeck and Ozil was replaced by Tomas Rosicky. Palace boss Alan Pardew sent on Murray for Gayle and Shola Ameobi made his debut to replace Joe Ledley. Murray saw a late close-range header saved on the line by Ospina, who was then beaten in another goalmouth scramble during five minutes of added time. Palace almost snatched a dramatic equaliser at the death as Ospina flapped at a left-wing cross, which Murray crashed against the base of the post with a flying header. Arsenal moved up to third in the Barclays Premier League with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Crystal Palace. Palace showed plenty of endeavour to try to get back into the match, and grabbed a stoppage-time consolation through substitute Glenn Murray, who then hit the post with a flying header as Arsenal held on to close out victory to climb back above Southampton, who play Liverpool on Sunday, and Manchester United, beaten at Swansea. The tone for what was a hard-fought contest was set early when Fraizer Campbell was caught on the chest by a high boot from Francis Coquelin, Arsenal’s new midfield enforcer. However, Clattenburg gave only a free-kick and no card – much to the disbelief of the Palace bench. The home management team could then not believe it moments later when Arsenal were awarded a penalty. Souare, making his Premier League debut after signing from Lille, came across to try to block Welbeck, but tripped the Arsenal forward as he darted away down the right. The initial contact looked right on the edge of the penalty area, and Clattenburg immediately pointed to the spot. Cazorla made no mistake from the spot as he sent Julian Speroni the wrong way for his seventh goal of the season. Palace looked to make an instant response, pushing Arsenal back with some direct balls into the danger area. Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse women’s lacrosse opponent preview: What to know about Northwestern

first_imgAfter defeating Georgetown on Sunday in the second round of the NCAA tournament, No. 5-seed Syracuse (16-4, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) will take on the No. 4-seed Northwestern (15-4, 5-1 Big Ten) Wildcats in the quarterfinals in Evanston, Illinois, at 2 p.m. on Saturday. SU handled the Hoyas with relative ease last round, led by Emily Hawryschuk’s five goals and two assists. The Wildcats scored the first eight goals of their game against Notre Dame on Sunday and ultimately won, 13-10, in their second-round contest.Here’s what to know before Saturday’s matchup.All-time series: Northwestern leads, 13-5Last time they played: In one of Syracuse’s most exciting games this season, the Orange took a 12-9 lead against Northwestern in the second half of their game on Feb. 24. The Wildcats went on to score five consecutive goals to take a 14-12 lead, but SU finished the game on a 3-0 run — sending the game into overtime and eventually winning, 15-14. Hawryschuk scored four goals, including the game-winner, and tied Nicole Levy for the team lead with five points. The Northwestern report: The Wildcats have one of the best offenses in the country, ranking second in both scoring offense and shot percentage. They also rank fifth in draw controls per game, points per game and shots per game. Their high-scoring offense is led by Tewaaraton Award finalist Selena Lasota, who’s sixth in the country in goals (79) and second in shots per game with 8.89. Northwestern’s defense hasn’t been so strong, though, allowing nearly 13 goals a game — 73rd in the nation — while its save percentage ranks just 52nd. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNU is one of the hottest teams in the country and comes into Saturday’s game riding a six-game winning streak. Five of the wins were over ranked opponents, including a 16-11 victory over No. 1-seed Maryland on May 5 in the Big Ten Championship. Aside from its loss to Syracuse, Northwestern’s three other defeats have come at the hands of the Terrapins, No. 2-seed Boston College and No. 3-seed North Carolina.How Syracuse beats Northwestern: Win the majority of draw controls and slow down the Wildcats’ offense. In their first matchup, Northwestern dominated the Orange in the circle and won 20 of 31 draw controls, but SU’s offense bailed it out. NU’s success this season has been thanks to sophomore midfielder Brennan Dwyer, whose 8.53 draw controls per game rank fifth in the country. Syracuse will need its draw control rotation of Hawryschuk, Braelie Kempney and Morgan Widner that had success versus the Hoyas to continue it in its matchup with the Wildcats.Aside from Lasota, Northwestern also features Big Ten freshman of the year and Wildcats’ second-leading scorer Izzy Scane. To beat Northwestern, Syracuse will need to slow the duo down. That means strong performances by Orange standouts Grace Fahey, Sarah Cooper and Kerry Defliese, who combined for five caused turnovers and nine ground balls versus Georgetown. SU may opt to face-guard Lasota just as Northwestern did with Hawryschuk in their first matchup, in which case Fahey would likely draw the responsibilities.Stat to know: 20 Both the number of turnovers and draw controls the Wildcats notched in their loss to Syracuse earlier this season. Twenty turnovers is the second-most the Wildcats committed in a game this season, and if they are just as sloppy on Saturday, they’ll likely fall to the Orange again. Meanwhile, 20 draw controls is also the second-most an SU opponent has won this year. The draw control circle and Northwestern’s offense will decide the game, and repeat performances of either stat could determine who reaches the final four.Player to watch: Selena Lasota, attack, No. 2The Big Ten attacker of the year, Lasota has scored four or more goals in her last seven games and 10 of her last 12. On March 14 against Rutgers, Lasota tied a program-record with nine goals, second-most in a game by a player this season. She’s the lifeblood of the Wildcats’ offense, and is playing at the top of her game right now. But the Orange have stopped her before — they held her to just two goals and one assist in their first meeting, including four shots that tied her season-low.
