Toure at his best – Pellegrini

first_img Press Association In addition the Ivorian scored a fine long-range effort against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League a week ago and added another from inside the box in last Sunday’s derby destruction of Manchester United. Toure, 30, was not at his most influential as City mounted an underwhelming title challenge last season but he appears revitalised as Pellegrini’s input starts to take hold. Pellegrini said: “He is a very important player for the team. “I don’t know what happened last year but all the players are playing with trust and a goal always give them trust. I think it is very important. “We are always practising. Yaya stays normally, kicking the ball after we finish the daily work. “He is really in a good moment (of form) also, (although) it is not normal for someone always (to be) scoring free-kicks.” Toure had been introduced as a second-half substitute for Fernandinho, who had been the only starter from the 4-1 win over United to have been retained in the side. Those 10 changes barely disrupted the hosts’ momentum as they overran a Wigan side that bore little resemblance to the one which stunned City in May’s FA Cup final. Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini believes Yaya Toure is in prime form and earning reward for his hard work in training. Toure’s fine start to the season continued as he struck his fifth goal in seven games in a 5-0 Capital One Cup thrashing of Championship side Wigan at the Etihad Stadium. It came direct from a free-kick in almost identical fashion to the midfielder’s set-piece strikes against Newcastle and Hull last month. Edin Dzeko volleyed in the opener 12 minutes prior to the interval before Stevan Jovetic netted his first two goals for the club either side of Toure’s sublime strike. Jesus Navas, also fresh from the bench, completed the rout in the closing stages. City had numerous other opportunities, including a powerful effort against the woodwork from 17-year-old Marcos Lopes, who was making his full debut. Jovetic, the £24million summer signing from Fiorentina, was pleased to open his City account after an injury had delayed his start to the season. The Montenegro striker, whose form may not be good news for England with a vital World Cup qualifier next month, said: “I am so happy for this victory and my goals. “The team played very good. For my first goal Micah Richards did everything and I just put the ball in the goal. “I am so happy and I hope we are going to continue this way. “I feel very well here, from my first day they accepted me very well. “It was a bit difficult for me because I came last and I was injured when they played the first games. I was doing preparation. “Now I feel much better and I hope playing more I am going to show much more.” Jovetic, 23, will now hope to push for a place in the side to face Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League this weekend. Defender Richards, who was making his first appearance of the season after overcoming a hamstring injury, and midfielder James Milner also impressed to keep themselves at the forefront of Pellegrini’s thoughts. Portuguese forward Lopes, who played a left-wing role against Wigan, is likely to return to work with Patrick Vieira’s elite development squad but his potential was evident. Lopes, who made a goalscoring substitute appearance against Watford last season, told City TV: “I felt very good. I felt it was a good opportunity for me and I tried to do my best. “I almost scored – the ball hitting the bar – but I am happy because I think I did a good performance and I have to keep working. “It was very good to play with big players like this in a big stadium. It was fantastic.” last_img read more

Reliving their Cinderella story

first_imgWhen the 2010 brackets were announced, the old video was instantly rehashed, taking everyone back to that moment inside the DCU Center. Published on March 17, 2010 at 12:00 pm Five years ago this month, Taylor Coppenrath, Tom Brennan and T.J. Sorrentine played in the most important game of their entire lives. So the Slingbox curbs the homesickness. It connects to his cable back in Essex Junction, Vt., and transmits the local signal six hours across the Atlantic Ocean so he won’t miss moments like these.  ‘Over here it’s a little different,’ Coppenrath said. ‘Sometimes it’s a little hard to get motivated. Sometimes I have to play well personally, and sometimes I hope the team plays well. It’s a balance of numbers and team success and what’s going to happen next year. You got your agent saying, ‘Well, maybe you should put up some better numbers, but the team’s doing well, you don’t want to mess with the team’s success. So you do have a lot of things you have to think about when you’re playing for money.’ He says he’s still amazed at all the stories he hears about that night and that he should just write a book. Everyone in Vermont remembers where they were that night when the Catamounts took down the Orange.  ‘It takes a little getting used to,’ he said. ‘This year I wasn’t able to get home for Christmas at all. It’s my first year not being home at all during the season at least at one point.’ This is not to say that Sorrentine isn’t ready to move on. These days, he’s got another team to worry about. Another career to focus on.  Facebook Twitter Google+ ‘It was one of those things I will never forget,’ Sorrentine said. ‘I think it was the best moment of our lives.’ Leading Vermont to its first-ever NCAA Tournament win, the No. 13 seed Catamounts took out the No. 4 seed Orange in overtime and cemented their legacy in a state once plagued with 100 years of basketball futility. Sorrentine was Vermont’s second-leading scorer that season and a known marksman from beyond the 3-point line. And on that night in particular, he was just four steps inside half-court with his heel still grazing the paint from the green DCU logo. Without hesitation, he cocked back and drilled a shot that sent the crowd into a frenzy. Syracuse rushed to call a timeout as the Vermont sidelines erupted.  Taylor Coppenrath plugged the Slingbox into his laptop to catch a glimpse of Selection Sunday. ‘I’ll tell you what, in the last ten years of my life I’ve never once fallen down,’ Brennan said. ‘I’ve only fallen up. It’s been unbelievable you know, we win that game, we win three (America East) championships in a row and I go on ESPN, and it was remarkable! One minute and 11 seconds left to play in overtime. Vermont leading Syracuse by one, eight seconds left on the shot clock. ‘And you know what I say to them?’ Brennan said. ‘You should have been where I was sitting! I thought I was going to explode! I thought they were going to find me in pieces all over the damn coliseum!’ Five years later, Sorrentine is now an assistant coach at Brown, under Jesse Agel, an assistant on that 2005 team. When he goes on recruiting visits, the parents of prospective players often ask him what hitting that shot was like. During practice, Agel will tap his shoulder and reference it every now and then. In the basketball world, he says, sometimes you’re remembered for one moment. And reliving it every once and a while isn’t so bad. ‘I think my best basketball and my most favorite memories are when I was playing at UVM,’ Coppenrath said. ‘For no money.’ At that moment, it was clear that the Catamounts were 2005’s Cinderella, en route to victory. And at the moment when Sorrentine got the text about the rematch, it was also clear that the NCAA had a twisted sense of humor. Now, T.J. Sorrentine is positive the questions about ‘the shot’ are never going to stop. ctorr@syr.edu The former Vermont head coach from 1986-2005 guessed Villanova. His brother is a team psychologist for the Wildcats, and he could appreciate the irony there. Back five years ago when basketball meant everything. When the game was played with more zeal, when money was never an issue. Back five years ago, when shocking the college basketball world was enough gratification. Tom Brennan and his wife were on their way back to Vermont from the SEC tournament in Nashville when his son called. Comments His goal, like any other coach, is to command a high-profile program and be on top of the game he fell in love with while going to see Providence as a young kid growing up in Rhode Island. ‘And when I was on ESPN I’d say to myself ‘Yo, bro. You were 8-50 your first two years and now you’re an expert analyst go figure.’ Eventually, Coppenrath plans to come back to the states and find a coaching job. Maybe pursue teaching his area of study at Vermont. But for now, basketball in Spain is still life. And even during the toughest of times, all it takes is a trip down memory lane to put things in perspective. To remember the good old days.  Reliving ‘the shot’  But along the way there’s a passion to stop somewhere in the middle and show another group of kids what Brennan showed him back in Vermont. There’s a certain luster to the Cinderella role and a yearning within Sorrentine to get back to that moment. Now, he still keeps up with the Catamounts. He sits courtside for their home games, and Lonergan keeps him in the loop about everything that’s going on. ‘When you start getting money it just changes the game a little bit, you know?’ Coppenrath said. ‘Then, you just went out there to play to win, you know, play hard, play with your heart.’ ‘I was in California and (Agel) sent me a text that said, ‘You’ll be getting a lot of face time this week,” Sorrentine said. ‘It’s been pretty funny just seeing those highlights. It’s that matchup, you know?’ For Vermont’s leading scorer during that magical season, life is a little different now. A little harder. He spends his days playing basketball for a Spanish club and lives in Malia, Africa. He isn’t able to get home much. Living the dream A way back home Coppenrath, the leading scorer and star player, uses it as fuel to grind through trying times playing professional basketball overseas. Sorrentine, the overtime hero, uses it as recognition, as a stepladder to reach his dream career. And Brennan, the head coach, uses it to continue his euphoric run through the retired life. Sunday, it was announced that Vermont and Syracuse would play each other again, andfor these three, the game that changed everything was back in the spotlight. Though it was never forgotten, it gave them all a chance to relive what was their Cinderella story one more time. ‘He said, ‘No, Syracuse.’ And I said, ‘Syracuse got a No. 2 seed?’ He said, ‘No, you got a 16!’ And my immediate response was that I feel bad for Jimmy (Boeheim) and really bad for (current Vermont head coach) Mike Lonergan, because that was five years ago!’ For Brennan, though, it wasn’t an excuse to break out the home videos and relive the past. Admittedly, he’s never come down from that moment — he’s been on cloud nine for the last five years. It was his last win as Vermont’s head coach before stepping down following the NCAA Tournament, and ever since, he’s had the sweet life – as an analyst for ESPN, a co-host of his own radio show and, in general, as the quintessential local celebrity. Each game in college, he said, was like ‘going out to fight a war’ after hearing his coach’s pregame speeches. He felt unstoppable. Before Selection Sunday, though, it was a feeling he’d forgotten after a few years overseas. There are no riveting pregame speeches anymore. There is only the harsh reality of life in the pros. And seeing the name Syracuse plugged in next to his alma mater’s took him right back. ‘It’s the ultimate grind,’ Sorrentine said. ‘I just love being around the game and I want our kids and whoever I’m coaching to experience what I experienced. And that’s just a great feeling to experience.’  In 2005, Coppenrath was uncontainable on the court. Leading the Catamounts in scoring (25.1 points per game), rebounding (8.9) and field-goal percentage (51.7), he embodied UVM’s rise from a team that went 100 years without an NCAA Tournament bid to a conference powerhouse. A perennial double take for each higher seed looking over its shoulder come March. This March wasn’t remembrance for Brennan. This was simply affirming what he’d known all along that one win could change everything. ‘He said, ‘You’re not going to believe who you’re playing,” Brennan said. For each, it would prove to be essential for different reasons. ‘I just laughed,’ Sorrentine said. ‘That committee is a funny committee, man.’  last_img read more
