Courtois thinks Hazard should always play 90 mins

first_imgChelsea ‘Hazard should play 90 minutes’ – Courtois surprised at Conte’s Man Utd substitution Harry Sherlock Last updated 1 year ago 20:25 28/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Eden Hazard Chelsea Paul Pogba Manchester United Getty Images Chelsea Premier League Eden Hazard Manchester United v Chelsea Manchester United The Chelsea goalkeeper wants to see his Belgian team-mate play the full match where possible after he was withdrawn in the second half at Old Trafford Thibaut Courtois admits he was surprised to see Eden Hazard substituted by Antonio Conte during the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United.The Blues slipped out of the Premier League’s top four after goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard earned United the points following Willian’s opener.Lingard’s winner came two minutes after Hazard had been substituted by Conte, with Pedro coming on for the Belgium international.

Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Chelsea were then left without their most creative spark when chasing the game and Courtois has aired his surprise at his compatriot’s withdrawal. “I have no explanation for the substitution,” Courtois told Belgian outlet Play Sports. “I did not expect it, but it’s the manager’s choice. He’ll explain it. I can’t look into his head. “Of course, you want players like Eden 90 minutes on the pitch. He can always bring something extra.”Conte has been under pressure in recent weeks, with the Blues struggling domestically. Chelsea are currently fifth in the Premier League, two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and 19 behind leaders Manchester City.Speaking after the defeat at Old Trafford, Conte suggested that Hazard had failed to maintain his high standards in the second half and that his withdrawal was merely a tactical decision.”No Hazard [is not injured], no,” he told a news conference. “It was a tactical decision. “You have to keep the same performance for 90 minutes, we didn’t have a great balance, and every single player has to try to work with the ball, without the ball, otherwise we lose our balance.”I think he’d finished his energy because the first half he ran a lot. The second half he started the same way, but when I see a player is a bit tired, my task is to find a different solution.”Meanwhile, Courtois was left deflated by the defeat at United, which came on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Barcelona in the Champions League when Chelsea had also taken the lead.”After our goal, we conceded a counter-attacking goal just like last Tuesday but in the second half we had less of the ball, but even then we should never have lost this match,” he said.”If you do not do the small things well in top matches, you lose, which is what happened.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Daily Bullets (July 18): Big 12’s Stance on ‘Horns Down’ Deserves Thumbs Down

first_imgA good morning and a great day to the fellow golf-heads out there crazy enough to wake up early and follow the British Open’s opening day. May your coffee be strong, your caffeine high last long, and may we all watch with pleasure as Rickie Fowler clinches his first major win from across the pond. Bullets Rundown• Ice Man taking on bigger leadership role• Why Big 12’s stance on Horns Down deserves thumbs down• OSU’s offseason motivation, in shirt form• Les Miles with Hollywood treatment at new ESPN+OSU Bullets• Gold medal-winning point guard Isaac Likekele (has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?) is already putting to use his valuable Team USA experience back in the states. As one of the players on the U19 team that won the World Cup, he’s already positioning himself for a bigger role at OSU as a sophomore.“His presence, it means a ton to us,” said Mike Boynton. “You can tell his energy is infectious, and he will be a great leader for us.” [NewsOK]• Jenni Carlson of The Oklahoman argues the Big 12’s stance on Horns Down is a thumbs up. Respectfully, *fart noise*.I guess the Big 12 could go extreme with Horns Down — ban it outright or allow it regardless — but neither seems viable. Allow it, and officials have their hands tied if someone uses it in a taunting manner. Ban it, and officials have to spend time looking for something easily undetected and ultimately unimportant.A nuanced stance is the right one for the Big 12. [NewsOK]I get the point of arguing this side of it. Really. But when talking about the Big 12’s officials, the words nuance and open to interpretation makes me about as confident as Hugh Freeze when he sees the NCAA on caller ID. Any type of judgement calls related to gestures or intent are bound to be misjudged. My horns are down at this stance, and so are both my thumbs.• OSU could have just printed out some “H8ERS R OUR MOTIV8ERS” shirts to fuel them this offseason, but instead they did one better by printing shirts with the names of every team that beat them during their 7-6 year.“It gave you something to work for every day,” center Johnny Wilson said. “You go to your locker, you get your stuff out and there’s those names. Every single day.” [Dallas News](I approve. Please send a size large to [HEAVILY REDACTED, BROKEN ARROW, OKLAHOMA]. Thanks in advance.)• Date and time for Fan Appreciation Day, 2019, has been set. Marketh thine calendars (and maybe see you there).SAVE THE DATE!🏈️⚽️Fan Appreciation Day📅 Aug. 3🕝 2:30-4:30 p.m.📍 Gallagher-Iba Arena#okstate #GoPokes pic.twitter.com/QP23udWHBk— Oklahoma State Athletics (@OSUAthletics) July 17, 2019• I apologize for being a total child with this #FaceApp stuff, but the amount of laughter I had when it spit out Spencer and Dru like this was healthy for my soul. (Also, who is your vote on this question? I’m riding the SS Ship.) Non-OSU Bullets• It seems the CP3 era in OKC could last longer than expected! As ESPN cap guru Bobby Marks pointed out, the reason for a non-robust market for him is pretty simple: it’s mid-July, ~40% of players under contract cannot be traded at this time, and most teams have already filled up most of their cap space.Here is the formula for why:*40% of players under contract cannot be traded* There are no teams with significant cap space (ATL has the most @ $7M)* Biggest trade exception is GSW ($17.2M) who is hard capped- next is DAL @ $11.8M https://t.co/H6FExQmTAf— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) July 17, 2019• Auburn — and by extension, Bruce Pearl — seem to be bracing for a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA related to the college basketball scandal. Auburn had an assistant implicated in the case, and while he got off nearly unscathed by avoiding prison time, Auburn’s program (and again, by extension, Pearl) might not be so fortunate. The case is of particular interest in Stillwater, as OSU is in a similar position; Lamont Evans was one of the assistants implicated in the scandal, and OSU could be in a similar boat as Auburn (and NC State).Related to the college basketball scandal, NC State received its own NOA last week detailing multiple Level I and Level II violations, the most severe and the second-most severe in the eyes of the NCAA. In its case, the NCAA alleges a former Adidas executive paid former star recruit-turned-NC State-signee Dennis Smith Jr. $40,000. Former coach Mark Gottfried and his former assistant, Orlando Early, are also named in the case, which alleges Smith was provided $46,700 in total impermissible benefits. [CBS Sports]• /ducks the comments section. So uh … this Baker Mayfield piece was interesting, as was his strategy to get his now-wife’s attention. Millennials!The quarterback and his fiancée, who is from Nebraska, were introduced in 2017 by a mutual friend. At the time, Wilkinson was living in Los Angeles. She says she was wary of dating a “punk football player” and ignored Mayfield’s advances for months: He repeatedly followed and unfollowed her on Instagram, trying to attract her attention. Finally, in late December, they exchanged messages. He begged her to meet him before the Rose Bowl, his final college football game. She reluctantly agreed to grab lunch. [ESPN]• I am enraged at The Ringer’s placement of “Let it Go” on the ranking of the best Disney songs. Enraged! • So grass-eating Les Miles is going to be a star, huh?And Tuesday saw an even more interesting announcement of an 18-part behind-the-scenes series on Les Miles and Kansas that will premiere on the ESPN+ Big 12 Now service next month, with a trailer that includes footage of Miles and Kansas athletic director Jeff Long talking before Miles officially took the job. [Awful Announcing]The trailer looks pretty awesome, actually. (Les saying he doesn’t need a fake-bleep whistle to some poor GA hooked me instantly). This is like “Hard Knocks” for CFB, but like, way less interesting. Count me in!• People are dying (literally) for Instagram likes at an obscure sight-seeing spot in Arizona.• Emoni Bates is only 15 years old, but he’s seen by many already as the best basketball prospect since LeBron James. But will he even garner interest from high-major college programs? Why murky NBA plans to lower the age limit (and potentially abolish the one-and-done rule for good) have thus far limited his college prospects.• Nine golfers who could win the 2019 British Open.

Reader Thoughts: Where is Chuba in the Passing Game?

first_imgI got this excellent email from a reader this week and thought I would share his thoughts (and mine!) with everyone.I’m going to wait until after the bye week to really consider #Chuba4Heisman but right now I’m just concerned that we don’t throw him the ball. Sure, we basically don’t throw the ball to anyone not named Wallace either, but shouldn’t we be seeing some screens, swings, and wheels?Looking at old Princeton box scores I see some of the same trends, the same two pass-catchers caught 55 percent or more of all completed passes in 2017 and 2018, and the RBs were essentially uninvolved. Justice and Chuba combined to catch just over 12 percent of completed passes in 2017 and 2018. RBs so far this year have caught just 4.5 percent (a grand total of four btw) of completed passes, and all of those RBs are Chuba.I would like to think we learned from not using Tyreek enough in 2014 to at least ask the question: Why isn’t Chuba involved more in the passing game and how can we get him there? Is it more that he’s there and open, but Wallace or Stoner are more open? Thanks for all y’all do on the site. -Daniel R.This is a great question and something I’ve noticed as well! I don’t know the specific scheming reasons here, but I do think the broader reason is mostly a function of Spencer Sanders’ inexperience.I would guess the majority of those 12 percent of catches from Justice and Chuba in 2017 and 2018 were on check-downs where the play broke further down the field. Maybe a handful of them were called screens or inside passes or whatever.Regardless, Sanders doesn’t check down very well for a couple of reasons. The first is that the game looks like it’s 2x speed for him right now. The second is because he doesn’t need to. That is, when plays break down for him, he’s more likely to take off than Rudolph or Cornelius (this is like saying Gundy is more likely to use a comb than Boynton, I guess, but you get the point).Now whether he should be taking off instead of checking down is a different story. Chuba in space is terrifying on all of the levels, and sometimes checking down provides the most space.I’m with you, too, I think OSU should spread him out more instead of running him between the tackles over and over again. As an aside: Remember when we weren’t positive he even could run between the tackles? 😂OR you could even line Chuba out wide like the Chiefs do with Tyreek and have him run wild on the edge out there.The more Chuba is spread out the harder it is for a defense to figure out where he’s going to end up, and thus the more scary he is as a weapon in Oklahoma State’s offense. If it’s even possible for someone who just put up 296 on 25 carries against a real defense to be more scary.Also, I asked our Xs & Os guy, Dustin Ragusa, and here’s what he said.A lot of the passing plays have involved play action, as well as play-action roll outs, and RPOs. The running back isn’t normally involved as a pass option on those.Also, as we’ve seen, Spencer would prefer to give Wallace a chance, even when he’s covered, as opposed to dumping it down. So, basically, all the receivers besides Tylan aren’t getting many targets, meaning Chuba isn’t either. As we saw last week where McCray got zero.And the running back isn’t a pass option in play action and RPOs normally because the fake is going to him, especially in an RPO since the line is blocking run, Spencer has to throw to the pass read quickly (or there will be an ineligible man downfield) so the running back is never the throw there.
