Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri said post-Porto talk inspired win over Man City

first_img Jamie Vardy’s hat-trick helped the Foxes beat Manchester City Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri said a post-Porto inquest helped to inspire the reigning Premier League champions after Jamie Vardy’s hat-trick downed Manchester City.The striker ended a three-month wait for a club goal as the Foxes won 4-2 to seal their first leave victory since October.Vardy was left at home for Wednesday’s 5-0 Champions League defeat in Porto, when Ranieri made 10 changes, which sparked a dressing room discussion about how to revive their form after just one win from eight games.“We spoke a lot about everything but this time the words go in the right direction, not only mine. The players contributed,” Ranieri said.“We must be upset with our performance (in Porto) because it wasn’t good enough and the fans are always behind us. It’s important to say ‘we are here’.“We can tell it’s a turning point in two or three months, now it’s too early. For this reason I want to wait for the next two matches. It’s important the players feel better, with more confidence because we can do this.“Now, forget the Champions League and put our brain on the Premier League.”Leicester were 2-0 up after five minutes against City when Vardy drilled past Claudio Bravo and King scored from distance.Vardy rounded Bravo for his second goal with just 20 minutes gone and then completed his treble with 12 minutes left after latching onto John Stones’ poor backpass.He had failed to score in his previous 16 club games but Ranieri was relaxed over his form.“He played so well, never he told me he needed to score. Never,” he said. “Although I know the goalscorer needs to score goals.”Aleksandar Kolarov and Nolito scored in the final 10 minutes for City, who now sit four points behind leaders Arsenal in the title race and will be seven points behind Chelsea if the Blues beat West Brom on Sunday.City have won four of their last 15 games in all competitions – having won Guardiola’s first 10 in charge – but despite their poor run of form the former Barcelona boss will refuse to compromise his passing style.He said: “I want to play the football I feel. I cannot say we played badly or didn’t play without the intention to create. Always I try to control the games so we concede few goals, in here I cannot do that and I have to analyse why.“I want to win games, I don’t want to lose games. I feel what I feel and in the Premier League there are some special things but the pitch is the same. What I believe is good and will be good.”Shellshocked City also failed to win a tackle in the first 35 minutes but Guardiola played down the statistic.“The second balls is a concept here in England, I’m not a coach for the tackles so I don’t train the tackles,” he said.Guardiola was also forced to defend Stones again after the £50million summer signing from Everton made another mistake, presenting Vardy with his third goal with more poor distribution.He added: “Today, except the last goal, he made a good performance. Central defenders is just defending, put the ball long, but what we want is a little bit more, not just defending.“I’m not disappointed with my players. When I need to tell them something I will tell it to then, they are professional and old enough to know what happens.“Hopefully in the future we can improve.” 1last_img read more

Working Without Fear

first_imgMolly Fletcher knows a thing or two about being a game changer. She spent two decades as one of the world’s few female sports agents, working with hundreds of athletes, coaches and media personalities, before founding her own company in 2010. An athlete herself, she played varsity tennis at Michigan State University, where her experience instilled in her many habits that have kept her at the top of her game: discipline, resiliency, passion and teamwork.”There are so many parallels between the challenges and lessons I learned in the sports world and those that we face in the business world,” says Fletcher, CEO of The Molly Fletcher Co. and the opening general session speaker at the Society for Human Resource Management’s 2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition taking place April 24-26 in Chicago.One of those parallels is the notion that our fears hold us back from being our best.In her latest book, Fearless at Work: Achieve Your Potential by Transforming Small Moments into Big Outcomes (McGraw-Hill Education, 2017), Fletcher provides play-by-play insights and field-tested strategies that show how to:– Trade self-defeating attitudes and self-imposed hurdles for a new outlook rooted in a sense of purpose and mission.– Defeat toxic thinking and push beyond your comfort zone to embrace new challenges and achieve your stretch goals.– Prepare to seize the moment when opportunity presents itself.– Shrug off the fear of failure and stop worrying about what other people think.She describes five habits, which she calls the “five trades,” that she says will give you insights into how to make small changes in your thinking and behavior to achieve more success and fulfillment.Her five fundamentals:– Trade defensiveness for curiosity. Defensiveness doesn’t help anyone move to a better place in life. It communicates that you don’t want or need support. You’re telling people you’d rather go on without them. Let down your guard. Ask “what if?” to elicit more information and to make room for positive energy and growth.– Trade the old story for a new story. Fear is a story we tell ourselves. Our fear is all about the but.”I would have spent more time doing what I love, but …” What if we traded all the buts for a new story of who, what, where, when, why and how we most want to be? Trading your old story for a better one is a fundamental act of fearlessness.– Trade bad stress for good stress. Don’t you love it when you get a second wind? A second wind can be the product of trading bad stress for good stress. But how do you pass from the familiar bad stress to the second wind? One way is by being intentional. That means getting clear and focused on what you need to be doing in the moment– Trade words for action. Thinking and talking about what makes us different and special is an important part of the process, but once we have a consensus on how, the way we are going to move forward is by taking action. Also, remember that how and what don’t matter without understanding why.– Trade comfort for clarity. Fear and comfort often go hand in hand. Comfort can signal that you don’t want to change, even when the change could make you happier. Choosing clarity involves work. It means collecting and sifting through practical advice. When you gather facts, you can better detour around your fears.”It takes awareness, it takes work, and it takes determination—but in the end, conquering your fear is a choice,” Fletcher writes. Desda Moss is managing editor of HR Magazine.last_img read more

TFA CEO & Chairman’s Award

first_imgWyld is the State Manager at Touch Football South Australia, while Connolly is the State Council Executive Chairperson in Western Australia. The awards were presented by Touch Football Australia’s Chairman Michael Rush and Chief Executive Colm Maguire at a dinner following Saturday’s State Council Meeting. Maguire says that the awards were created to recognise the hard work of the volunteers and the staff at a state level . “Obviously they put a tonne of work into the organisation in a 12 month period and while on a lot of occasions, in particular with volunteers their work can go unheralded, but with staff it’s almost an expectation, so we wanted to make sure that we were giving something that recognised their efforts,” Maguire said. Connolly, who has been  involved in Touch Football for several years, was rewarded for the work he had put into the sport as a volunteer. He is still the president of South Districts Touch in Perth – which is one of the largest affiliates in Western Australia – as well as being a manager and a selector at a state and national level.  Rush and Matt Bamford (Regional Manager – West) are full of praise for the work that Connolly has done for the sport. “He’s done a lot especially in a difficult period, he put his hand up when the sport was going through a lot of change and hasn’t shied away from that position and is still there and is still very enthusiastic about continuing in the future,” Bamford said. “ Mike quoted about Ron’s ongoing commitment to the sport and the fact that he had had some major achievements against adversity this year, but also the fact that he’d basically been carrying the load by himself for a very long time and has been able to put together a council (in Western Australia),” Maguire said. Maguire said that the CEO award was to recognise staff members who embody the values and the culture that TFA are trying to bring to the sport.“Also recognising the journey in terms of going through hard times and good times and coming out the other end with positivity and I really made that positive aspect something that I wanted to capture, someone who had really put everything into it and is taking everything forward,” Maguire said. According to Maguire, Wyld was awarded the CEO’s award due to the ‘monumental year’ he has had. “He came into the organisation in late 2008, into an office that had a couple of subsequent changes and really had a massive task to do. From there he set about fixing it, he had his bumps along the way but has remained positive.“The quality of his work is outstanding, he runs everything in line with the national organisation’s processes, fits in in an absolutely unbelievable way, has gone to events and worked with us, he’s just a great character and I guess a future leader for the sport. So we wanted to recognise that we want him around as well,” Maguire said. TFA wishes to congratulate Tim and Ron on their respective awards.last_img read more

ESPN’s Poll Reveals Alabama Perceived As College Football’s Best Coaching Job

first_imgESPN SportsNation poll about the best college football coaching job.It’s always fun to debate which college football program is the most prestigious in the country. There are a number of ways to measure such an honor, including determining which head coaching job is the most coveted in the country. We went through and named our 16 most desirable head coaching gigs this past November. This week, ESPN asked the general public to chime in.In an ESPN SportsNation poll, Alabama was voted as the best coaching job in college football. The Crimson Tide received 35% of the vote, ahead of No. 2 Ohio State by a decent margin. Texas and USC came in third and fourth, though, to be fair, there were only four teams listed. “Other” took home 26% of the vote.Fans in specific regions made it clear that they believe their program should have been listed. It’s obvious that supporters of Oregon, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, LSU, Florida and Florida State felt that they should have been options as well. ESPNESPNDo you agree with the poll? Is Alabama really the best job in the country, or has Nick Saban’s success made it that way?last_img read more

Video: John Calipari Addresses Post-Game Actions Of Willie Cauley-Stein, Andrew Harrison

first_imgjohn calipari final four interviewjohn calipari final four interviewKentucky lost its Final Four contest against Wisconsin Saturday night, and in the aftermath, a number of the team’s players committed some transgressions they’d probably like to take back. Willie Cauley-Stein, among others, left the court without shaking hands with the Badgers. And Andrew Harrison made a disparaging remark during the post-game press conference about Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky. Sunday, Wildcats head coach John Calipari sat down with Campus Insiders’ Bonnie Bernstein to address both situations.Coach Cal explained that he loves his players, but they sometimes do “dumb things” that they later need to apologize for. He also said that Harrison will not be facing any discipline for his actions.It’s going to an interesting offseason in Lexington, to say the least.last_img read more

Director James Gunn fired from Guardians 3 over old tweets

first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – James Gunn was fired Friday as director of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” because of old tweets that recently emerged where he joked about subjects like pedophilia and rape.Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn announced the removal.“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,” Horn said in a statement.Gunn has been writer and director of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise from the start, taking an obscure Marvel Comics title about a group of multicolored misfits and turning it into a space opera decked with comedy and retro music that made Chris Pratt a major movie star. Through two installments the franchise has brought in more than $1.5 billion in global box office.Gunn apologized for the old tweets Friday after his firing, echoing similar sentiments he expressed on Twitter a day earlier.“My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative. I have regretted them for many years since — not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don’t reflect the person I am today or have been for some time,” Gunn said in a statement. “Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today. Even these many years later, I take full responsibility for the way I conducted myself then.”Gunn’s current Twitter account is heavy on left-leaning politics, and some on the right with whom he’d sparred found and promoted the tweets from 2008 to 2011 that led to his firing.Disney did not announce a replacement director for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” Gunn had been writing the script and it’s not clear how far along he was or whether new writers will be brought in. Marvel Studios has not announced a release date, though Gunn had said 2020 was the target.Marvel has staked a lot on the third “Guardians” movie. Gunn has said the film would end the current iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy and launch another decade, or more, of Marvel films.In addition to Pratt, the “Guardians” franchise stars Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, and features the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.The characters also were an essential part of this year’s Disney and Marvel megahit “Avengers: Infinity War.”Fans at Comic-Con in San Diego said they disapproved of Gunn’s tweets, but were mixed on how they felt about his firing.“It’s unfortunate to hear and makes me question whether I would see a movie like that even without his creative involvement,” Mario Panighetti of Mountain View, California said.Joanne Renda of Toronto said, “It’s never really funny to joke about that stuff, but copping to it is the first step. Everyone deserves a second chance. It’s kind of crazy our culture today, firing people right away.”___AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr contributed to this story from San Diego.___Follow Andrew Dalton on Twitter: https://twitter.com/andyjamesdalton .last_img read more
