Moyes eager for Anfield triumph

first_img A win for Everton will certainly mean Moyes’ men, currently sixth in the table, will finish this season above seventh-placed Liverpool, with the current gap between them standing at five points after 35 matches played. It would be the second campaign in succession that the Toffees have secured a higher final position than the Reds, but Moyes’ focus is more on this term’s bigger picture – the hunt for a European berth. “You want to finish above every team – I wanted to finish above Manchester United and Manchester City this season,” Moyes said. “Do I want to finish above Liverpool? Of course I do. But it can’t be our sole objective, and I would be surprised if it was Liverpool’s to finish above us. “In terms of our target at the moment, we are looking to see if we can catch Tottenham or one of the other teams above us.” Everton are three points behind fifth-placed Spurs, having played one game more. Press Association Everton boss David Moyes has stressed his desire to beat Liverpool in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield is not driven by any sense of personal mission.center_img Moyes has been in charge of the Toffees for 11 years, but is still to oversee an away victory against the Reds. The Scot has emphasised that if Everton pull off their first Anfield victory since 1999 this weekend, his thoughts will be on its significance for the club as a whole rather than for his own CV. Asked what it would mean to him personally if his side won this weekend’s Barclays Premier League clash, Moyes said: “Nothing personally. For Everton – for the team and the supporters – it will mean an awful lot, but personally, it is not an important thing really. I’m looking forward to trying to get a result for the supporters.” last_img read more

Source says Thomas recovering well after frightening collision

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 6, 2012 at 7:04 pm Contact Michael: | @Michael_Cohen13 Syracuse strong safety Shamarko Thomas was “feeling good” one day after he was part of a brutal collision with Pittsburgh tight end J.P. Holtz, a source close to Thomas told The Daily Orange on Saturday.The source also said the SU medical staff had not yet given Thomas a diagnosis of any potential injuries.Thomas and Holtz made helmet-to-helmet contact on a passing play late in the second half of SU’s 14-13 win over the Panthers, and Thomas was left motionless on the field for several minutes. The collision knocked Thomas’ helmet off and spun him around almost 360 degrees.Immediately, Thomas’ teammates as well as several Pittsburgh players went down on one knee, and some bowed their heads in prayer. The entire sideline behind the Syracuse bench rose instantly as Thomas and Holtz made contact, and spectators remained standing until Thomas was helped up.He was able to walk off the field under his own power.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter the game, SU head coach Doug Marrone said he had no update on Thomas’ status because he had not yet spoken with the trainers.“I just made sure it wasn’t anything drastic — something really bad,” Marrone said.

Superlatives from Syracuse’s 88-68 loss to No. 7 Louisville

first_imgLOUISVILLE, Ky. — Like it has all season, Syracuse played like a shadow of itself on the road. SU never cut its deficit to single digits in the second half, and the Orange (17-13, 9-8 Atlantic Coast) lost big, 88-68, to No. 7 Louisville (23-6, 11-5) in the KFC Yum! Center on Sunday afternoon.Here are the best and worst from Syracuse’s eighth road loss of the season.Turning pointIf only for a five-minute stretch, Louisville looked mortal. The Cardinals allowed Syracuse to make up an early nine-point deficit by turning the ball over five times, capped off by a Tyus Battle 3 that gave SU a 17-13 lead with 10:06 to go in the first half. But from the point, the Cardinals flew away with the game. UofL buried seven consecutive shots (while the Orange had made only six total) to go on a 23-4 run to lead by 16 at halftime. Syracuse could never close the gap from that point.Stud: Louisville’s interior defenseAdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse knows how much it struggled to shoot the 3 against Louisville two weeks ago. The Orange misfired 25 times behind the arc, and missed 21 times on Sunday. It’s not that SU forgot that the Cardinals have been the ACC’s second-best 3-point defense. But the presence of 7-footer Anas Mahmoud and 6-foot-10 Ray Spalding sealed off almost every attempt to penetrate by the visitors.The Orange was left desperately hoisting long 3s while the Cardinals knifed their way through Syracuse’s defense on the other end of the court. It was a polar opposite picture all afternoon.Dud: Andrew WhiteIt took nearly 31 minutes for SU’s leading scorer to make a basket. That’s what kind of game it was against the seventh-ranked team in the country. After leading the Orange with 22 points against UofL in the Carrier Dome, White was shutout for most of the afternoon. He finished with only four points, and didn’t make a 3-pointer (0-for-7) for only the second time this season.Highlight: Johnson’s no-look saveThere weren’t many meaningful shots in the second half of Sunday’s blowout, but at least one UofL basket had a bit of artistry to it. As the ball was trickling out of bounds near courtside seats, Jaylen Johnson lunged toward the spectators and blindly flung the ball to halfcourt. Given how the game went for the Cardinals, it was appropriate that Johnson’s desperate save landed right in the hands of Deng Adel. The 6-foot-7 forward lumbered down the court with minimal resistance and easily laid the ball in to stretch the lead back out to 15.Lowlight: Game-opening shot clock violationIt didn’t take long to find out what kind game Syracuse’s offense was in for. At home against Louisville, Syracuse fueled its late-game comeback on a series of shots at or near the end of the shot clock. In the first possession of Sunday’s game, the Orange found itself in familiar territory.But with the clock winding down toward zero, Tyler Lydon found no room to move toward the rim. He moved away from the basket but couldn’t get a shot off as the buzzer sounded. It was the first of SU’s 16 turnovers, which UofL scored 28 points off.

AnnaMarie Gatti hits career-high strikeouts, dominates in SU’s 2-0 win over NC State

first_imgAnnaMarie Gatti stood at the back of the circle and faced the outfield. She had just completed the second strikeout of the fourth inning and needed just one out to get out of a two-baserunner jam. She threw up two fingers.The ensuing groundout got SU out of trouble and contributed to the second shutout of her career in Syracuse’s (25-18, 7-11 Atlantic Coast) 2-0 win over NC State (22-24, 5-14). She struck out eight batters in seven innings, tying her career best. “I thought (Gatti and Romero) just competed,” head coach Mike Bosch said. “That’s the one thing I really saw out of both of them. They really went to batters and they took it kind of personally.”It was a continuation of Syracuse’s pitching dominant who won the first game of the doubleheader, 3-1, behind Alexa Romero’s career high 16 strikeouts. Syracuse got off to a quick start. An error in the first inning by third baseman Timberlyn Shurbutt on Hannah Dosset’s line drive scored freshman Miranda Hearn. But SU slowed afterwards. That was their only run until the sixth inning when a Michala Maciolek single scored Gabby Teran.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the runs were on the board for SU, so it was up to Gatti to perform.The first batter she faced set the tone for the rest of the game. NC State center fielder Jade Caraway went out swinging, the first of many batters to do so.Gatti wasn’t aware she was close to a career high, she said. It wasn’t until after the game someone told her she struck out eight batters to tied her career best. Previously, she had only thrown that many against Savannah State during a tournament in February of 2017. It was the first time she reached that mark against a conference opponent. “I’m not a strikeout pitcher so like just to be able to get that amount of strikeouts against an ACC school is the biggest win for me,” Gatti said, “whether we would’ve won or not.”Gatti slowed a bit, starting the sixth inning by walking the first batter. She got behind on the next count and NC State’s Sam Russ stole second to get into scoring position with no outs.Maciolek, the catcher, approached the circle. She told Gatti to relax and reminded her that the team had her back. The next play, Gatti got a strikeout.“I think I would have been a little more worried if we would’ve gone 10 straight balls or something like that,” Bosch said, “but she came back with a good pitch, got a good strike.”Gatti also played a role fielding. Multiple batters hit the ball directly toward her. Each time she would pick the ball up, and do what associate head coach Alisa Goler calls her ‘sassy walk’. After picking the ball up, Gatti paused for a moment and watched the batter run to first before tossing the ball to the first baseman. “Gabby (Teran) told me she holds her breath every time,” Gatti said. But, this game, she completed the toss each time. It was her third complete game of the season as the regular season comes to a close, and the ACC Tournament awaits. “Anna did unbelievable. It was great catching her,” Maciolek said. “It was a lot of fun. She was hitting her spots, she was striking people out, it was great.” Comments Published on April 21, 2018 at 8:01 pm Contact Kaci: Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Scott Longley: Jackson sizes up online hole at Paddy Power Betfair

first_img The good news for Paddy Power Betfair is that the company now has certainty over the succession to outgoing chief executive Breon Corcoran, writes Scott Longley, with ex-WorldPay executive Peter Jackson to be officially anointed in early January.However, the slightly less good news is that he has a lengthy order of business to address if he is to achieve the grand hopes for the merged entity which is now one-and-a-half year years into an integration plan._______________This week’s third-quarter trading statement was described as “encouraging” by the company and certainly it showed signs that it was reaping the benefits of many of the recent merger rationalisations (job cuts and cost-cutting) with EBITDA up 7 percent to €121m.But the detail of trading performance was less rosy. Retail was good with revenues up 12 percent for the period and the US (up 18 percent) and Australia (up 29 percent) were buoyant. However, the European online business saw revenues decline 3 percent, albeit compared to last year when there was the tail end of a major football tournament taking place.Within that, sports was down 3 percent despite wagering growth of 10%, largely due to an 80 basis points fall in margin to 6.6 percent. Gaming was flat year-on-year.Corcoran has previously made much of the difficulties of competing in the gaming space. But the degree to which competition across the whole of Paddy Power Betfair’s regulated markets businesses is taking its toll would appear to be evident from the 4 percent fall in point of consumption regime revenues while the unregulated quotient (which has been going backwards until recently) rose 10 percent. These markets now account for 9 percent of online revenues.Questions also have to be asked about the betting exchange which was down 5 percent year-on-year and continued a “lacklustre trend” despite the tougher comparatives from last year, suggested Paul Leyland at Regulus Partners.Jackson undoubtedly has the firepower to fund whatever changes he might wish to bring to the business to enable the core online arm to get to the point of being able to fire on all cylinders. The company’s full-year guidance for EBITDA is now €450m-€465m, and according to analysis from Cenkos that will flow through to an estimated net cash flow of €308m this year rising to an estimated €464m in 2019. It gives Jackson him plenty of ammunition in terms of marketing and promotions.Simon French at Cenkos suggested that further M&A might be in the offing once Jackson takes the reins (and with the protracted triennial review finally being concluded at around the same time). Still, the obvious lesson – once again – is the degree to which post-merger integration issues can hold a business back.Paddy Power Betfair need look no further than its Sportsbet business in Australia for how a lack of distractions can allow a business to power on.Despite further regulatory tightening net revenue rose 29 percent for the quarter, representing an acceleration on the 21 percent recorded in the first half.On the conference call, the company noted that it believes that the instigation of further point of consumption tax (PoC) regimes will come on a state-by-state level rather than as a Federal move. The management noted that Tasmania is the latest to signal it hopes to propose a 15 percent tax rate.Leyland noted that even with the introduction of PoC in Western Australia, for instance, the business is “better placed to bear” the extra circa $12m in annualised costs. “Sportsbet continues to be the jewel in the crown, possibly due to the lack of merger business disruption and also a less capable (if not less crowded) competitive set.”For French, an obvious starting point for Jackson would be to cast a fresh eye over Paddy Power Betfair’s decision to concentrate almost exclusively on regulated earnings For him, the rise in third-quarter unregulated revenues might be a precursor to a more concerted strategy reverse.“We have long questioned Paddy Power Betfair’s aversion to unregulated markets given the strong growth opportunities available,” he says. “We think a fresh pair of eyes may conclude that certain countries in South America, Asia and Africa all offer acceptable risk reward opportunities.” Flutter begins ‘new era’ by completing merger with Stars Group April 30, 2020 Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 Scott Longley – Confusion reigns over FDC’s second betting rights deal July 14, 2020 Submit Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Sharelast_img read more

Penguins vs. Canadiens: Carey Price shuts outs Sidney Crosby and Co., Pittsburgh ousted in Game 4 of NHL playoffs qualifier

first_imgDespite it being Sidney Crosby’s 33rd birthday, the Penguins came out flat and didn’t have much offense in this one outside of a few sporadic moments. In fact, the high-powered offense was held to just three high-danger chances for (per Natural Stat Trick). Montreal took advantage of the lackluster effort to move on.While the qualifying round was expected to be unpredictable, this result is a surprising one. The Canadiens didn’t even have a sniff of the playoffs when the season was paused.Back on March 12, Claude Julien’s squad had a 31-31-9 record and were nine points out of the postseason with three teams between them and the last wild-card spot. They were tied for 18th in goals for (212), tied for 23rd in goals against, in the bottom third on special teams, and in the midst of a three-game losing streak. When the June 26 draft lottery happened, everyone was gearing up to potentially see Québécois star Alex Lafreniere get drafted by Quebec’s team. Now, there’s a chance Lafreniere will be skating with fellow Rimouski Oceanic alum Sidney Crosby.MORE: Phase 2 draft lottery explainedThe Canadiens will have to wait until Saturday to find out who they’ll face.
