Davis enjoying squad progress

first_imgCaptain Steven Davis is pleased with the way Northern Ireland’s squad has evolved over the course of the current campaign. They were peripheral figures at the same stage of qualifying for Euro 2012, leaving Davis, 28, to reflect with satisfaction on a rejuvenated group. “Without a doubt, it’s great to see. I am one of the elder ones in the squad now and it is great to see younger players coming through and especially making an impact and being part of big nights for us,” said the Southampton midfielder. “Hopefully we can keep progressing as a team and growing and that will keep us in good stead. “We’ve got a good squad together and a good mix, plenty of jokes floating about. “You’ve got a squad now with a lot of young players in and they have gained valuable experience so far in a number of games and hopefully that can be a good measure for us going forward.” More immediately, Davis is looking to put right arguably the most disappointing result of O’Neill’s tenure. A year ago at Windsor Park, Northern Ireland dominated Luxembourg in their second Group F fixture, taking an early lead through Dean Shiels. But they somehow failed to add to their tally despite numerous chances and saw a lucky equaliser deny them three points late on. Press Association Manager Michael O’Neill has gradually fed new players into the side since taking over from Nigel Worthington, capping some for the first time and bringing in others from the fringes of the squad to the first XI. Against Luxembourg on Tuesday night, the likes of Daniel Lafferty, Lee Hodson, Oliver Norwood, Shane Ferguson, Jamie Ward and Martin Paterson can all expect to start. “Yeah, we came off the pitch disappointed at end of that game,” said Davis. “Dean Shiels scored a good goal and we put ourselves in a good position with numerous opportunities to extend the lead and then they got a deflected goal. “We have got good results away to Portugal and home to Russia and yet we’ve struggled in the games we have been tagged as favourites. “I have spoken so many times already about how I think the performances have been good this campaign but at the end of the day we need results and that’s what we have to put right.” Northern Ireland’s travelling support is likely to outnumber the home faithful at the Stade Josy Barthel, with 1,200 members of the Green and White Army expected. Davis said: “They’ve been fantastic for us in the last two games…I sometimes think they don’t realise how much of an impact they can have on the players. “It’s great to have that support behind us again.” last_img read more

Albrighton keen to see family smile

first_img The winger scored in Saturday’s opening-day 4-2 win over Sunderland as he and his family continue to rebuild their lives. Sue Davey, the mother of Albrighton’s partner Chloe Fulford, was killed in the Tunisia terror attacks in June while on holiday with partner Scott Chalkley, who also died. Albrighton and his family have been supported by the club and the 25-year-old wants to help ease the pain following their heartbreaking loss. He said: “You look at life and everything in a different light and different way. You think about what is important and what is not important. “If I can play football then it is taking my mind off things and if I am doing well my family are happy and that is all I can ask for. “I will see them now and they will all be happy, when you see them smiling it is the best thing in the world. “At the minute we have my girlfriend’s brother Conor Fulford living with us. “He was getting into me saying you need a celebration, you need to do something for my mum. “We were racking our brains and couldn’t think. “Chloe has been saying her mum has been up there putting a few things right and she has definitely helped me out. “I can’t thank everyone enough for the way that myself, and especially my family, have been treated.” Riyad Mahrez’s double and Jamie Vardy’s opener had given Leicester a 3-0 half-time lead in Claudio Ranieri’s first game in charge. Albrighton added: “He noticed we did well at the end of last year so he has not changed too much.” Jermain Defoe and Steven Fletcher pulled goals back for Sunderland in the second half in between Albrighton’s strike. But midfielder Jack Rodwell admitted it was damage limitation at half-time to ensure they avoided a similar defeat after losing 8-0 at Southampton last season. “We came in at half-time with an uphill task and we had to try not to get beaten by six or seven,” he said. “It’s not a fear you would get that, it’s just when you react when you are 3-0 down everyone starts chasing and you are not as organised as you are supposed to be. “It happened against Southampton last season, that’s when gaps create, they get space and score goals.” Press Association Leicester star Marc Albrighton hopes his form can put a smile back on his family’s face after their tragic summer.last_img read more

Scott Shafer escapes stresses of coaching watching son’s 1st start

first_imgLess than 1,500 people filled the single-sideline stands compared to the 30,112 in the Dome on Friday night. Some fans chose a grassy hill for their vantage point rather than the hot bleachers. The balcony of a four-story house overlooking the field served as a makeshift coaching box.Instead of all eyes being on the third-year head coach like they were on Friday, Shafer took the rare opportunity to watch his son, since Syracuse and Ithaca usually both play on Saturdays. Regardless of the result, no one will call sports talk radio shows demanding Ithaca’s coach be fired and national columnists won’t speculate if he’s on the hot seat.“Being a coach’s son, I know how it is,” Wolfgang Shafer said. “This is their profession. A lot of people forget about that sometimes. You go to these big-time D-I games, you see ‘Fire Whoever’ in the crowd. This is their well-being.”Shafer enjoyed being a dad for the day, but said earlier last week that he gets more nervous for his son’s games than his own. He sat quietly but clapped after nearly every one of his son’s completions. Fans around him stood and cheered vocally, but Shafer maintained his stern appearance while his degree of focus won’t influence the game.Wolfgang Shafer orchestrated a dominant nine-minute opening drive that resulted in a touchdown.“It was like woosh, right there,” one fan said of his touchdown pass.“That’s a great decision,” another said after he scrambled on a play-action rollout for five yards.The environment is different, but still, all eyes are on a new quarterback. Friday night, it was Syracuse freshman Eric Dungey, who replaced an injured Terrel Hunt. Saturday, it was Wolfgang Shafer starting his first collegiate football game.Ithaca’s offense stalled on its next two drives and Union then tied it at seven. When Wolfgang Shafer and the Bombers trotted onto the field, a fan yelled, “Come on coach, make your adjustments!”For a change, the words weren’t directed at Shafer.Twenty seconds later, the referee announced a penalty on Ithaca’s center for “simulating a snap.” Half of Missy Shafer’s immediate family is entrenched in college football, but like any mom at her son’s game, she blurted out, “I’ve never heard of that before.”Despite the removal from coaching responsibilities Saturday afternoon, Shafer was still on his phone often while Ithaca was on defense. At halftime, he left Elsa and Missy in the bleachers and found a quiet spot next to the stands to work his phone. But when the third quarter began, he was back at his seat.With less than four minutes to play, Union drew within one score. The Dutchmen lined up in a different formation on the ensuing kickoff and the Ithaca coaches in the press box frantically called into their headsets before calling timeout. Another hectic split-second coaching move as Shafer sat still in the sun.Just minutes earlier, SU Athletics announced that Hunt would be out for the season with a torn Achilles. On what could be the most tumultuous day for the Orange all season, Shafer kept clapping for his son.Football is just a game and being in the stands offered some reality.Said Wolfgang Shafer: “It’s a little more pure here.” Comments Published on September 7, 2015 at 9:18 pm Contact Paul: pmschwed@syr.edu | @pschweds SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Scott Shafer walked unrecognized into the Ithaca fan section at Frank Bailey Field. Flanked by wife Missy and daughter Elsa, Shafer wore faded green khaki shorts, an Ithaca football polo shirt and aviator sunglasses.Shafer came to see his son, Wolfgang, make his first career start at quarterback for the Bombers at Union College on Saturday. Just 15 hours earlier, SU was wrapping up its season-opening win in the Carrier Dome against Rhode Island.“My passion for this game has grown from him,” Wolfgang Shafer said of his father after throwing for 265 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-23 win over Union. “Just coming out here and doing what I love to do and see him do what he loves to do last night, I mean, that’s what it’s all about.”This is the side of Scott Shafer that SU fans don’t get to see. When he talks to recruits, he often stresses the family environment of his program and the importance of keeping things in perspective. On Saturday, he practiced what he preaches.“It’s nice to be a dad for once,” Shafer said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Mettus: What you can actually take away from Syracuse football’s 1st game under Dino Babers

first_img Related Stories With Dino Babers’ debut, Syracuse gets a new beginningSyracuse football rolls to 33-7 win over Colgate in Dino Babers’ SU debutStock up/stock down: A look back at Syracuse’s season-opening win over Colgate Published on September 6, 2016 at 12:18 am Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Nearly nine months of talk and marketing had built up Syracuse as “Orange is the new fast,” the fastest show on turf and any other slogan as long as you could fit “fast” in there.Tempo. Conditioning. Speed. All talked about ad nauseam. Until Friday, when we finally saw Dino Babers’ team take the field for the first time.Yes, Syracuse won, 33-7, with time to send its backups in at the end. Yes, the Orange had a program record completion percentage, Eric Dungey had a career-high in passing yards and Amba Etta-Tawo and Ervin Philips combined for more catches in a game than any two Syracuse receivers ever.And yes, it was the first game under a new system — and probably the worst SU will ever execute it. But it was also Colgate, an FCS team hell-bent on stopping the run, giving Dungey free reign in the air.Taking all that into consideration, here’s what we can reasonably take away from the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEric Dungey will be accurate on short throwsDon’t expect the sophomore quarterback to go 13-for-13 in the first quarter of every game or finish with an 85-percent completion rate on 40 throws. The Colgate safeties and linebackers were biting on the handoff portion of the run-pass option. Etta-Tawo was able to leap for grabs in one-on-one coverage along the sidelines for plays that will likely result in incompletions or interceptions against a better secondary.What you can expect to transfer over from the season opener is Dungey’s success on the short throws. He was 20-for-23 (86.9 percent) on throws fewer than 10 yards down the field. He was 13-for-17 (76.5 percent) on throws more than 10 yards.“I got to make better reads, better decisions and sharper throws,” Dungey said.The offense thrives on short throws to dink and dunk its way down the field. Receiver screens, 5-yard outs, shallow comebacks and slants will be run plenty. Timing is everything on these and Dungey and his receivers seem to have locked it down pretty well for now.Unlike Colgate, most teams will likely adjust to bring their corners up to the SU receivers to try to take away the quick passes and screens. Then, it’ll be up to Dungey to either hand the ball off or go deeper on something like a double move. No guarantees. But when the short ball is there, he’ll be able to take advantage.Dino Babers won’t be afraid of fourth downDungey got up from where he had been hit at the 50-yard line — 1 yard short on third down — and shook his finger at his coaches at the sideline before getting the quick signal to go for it. He hurried under center and snapped the ball before the defensive line had time to react, leaving space to scurry around the left side of the line for the first.The game was tied, 7-7, with fewer than three and a half minutes left in the first quarter. But Babers wasn’t playing the field position game.Former SU coach Scott Shafer faced criticism when he elected to punt down 10 points to No. 1 Clemson last year with fourth-and-8 and fewer than seven minutes to go. He cited field position as his reasoning.Syracuse was 3-for-3 on fourth down on Friday, converting from the 50, its own 26 and Colgate’s 24-yard line. Babers doesn’t just use it as a way to come from behind, he uses it as a way to get ahead and stay ahead.“Going down the road, on fourth down if we have to go for it, we have to go for it,” he said. “And we have to score touchdowns. We can’t kick field goals all the time. And if we go for it for four times and we don’t make it, then you guys get to be Monday morning quarterbacks and talk about how bad we are.“But I’m already telling you after our first game that we’re going to do those things because we’re not playing to be close. We’re playing to win, and if winning means we can’t kick field goals and we have to go for it every single time, we will, regardless of the score.”Syracuse can go under centerThe bulk of SU’s new offense is run out of shotgun with a running back by the quarterback’s side. But several times, Dungey ran under center for a handoff or quick throw to the sideline — or a QB keeper like the one he converted on fourth down with.SU showed a full house-like formation that Babers referred to as a power-I with freshman defensive end/tight end Kenneth Ruff and redshirt senior offensive tackle Michael Lasker lined up as tight ends/fullbacks in the backfield in front of the running back.“There’s a lot of offense in our offense,” Babers said. “… We always have the flexibility to be able to branch off and do different things. … We’re not afraid to take off the roof.”That being said, you’ll probably never see that formation again this season. Babers was tired of throwing the ball and wanted to force the run anyway he could.Still, Dungey was able to switch back and forth between shotgun and under center fairly well even in the no-huddle setting.Jon Mettus is an Asst.

The Angels went with rookies José Rodriguez and José Suarez to piggyback the first part of the game, and each pitched two innings. Rodriguez gave up three runs and Suarez allowed one.Suarez had been used as a starter, or at least as a primary pitcher following an opener, but this time the Angels wanted him to just pitch a couple innings to sharpen a mechanical fix he had made recently.“I did feel good,” Suarez said through an interpreter. “I felt like my form from last season.”In the bottom of the fifth, left-hander Miguel Del Pozo took the mound.
