Jamie Vardy and the best Premier League scoring streaks

first_imgJamie Vardy became only the eighth striker to score in at least seven consecutive Premier League games as Leicester beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at the weekend. MARK STEIN: Seven games, Chelsea, run finished February 1994 Stein starred for Chelsea at a difficult time. Despite his seven-game streak, the Blues only claimed three victories during that time. IAN WRIGHT: Seven games, Arsenal, run finished November 1994 Wright was simply sensational for Arsenal as he plundered 18 Premier League goals in 1994-95, with his scoring run including a win against his old club Crystal Palace. ALAN SHEARER: Seven games, run finished Newcastle November 1996 In his first season as a Newcastle player, Shearer hit the ground running with a remarkable scoring run that included a goal in a 5-0 win over Manchester United. THIERRY HENRY: Seven games, Arsenal, run finished May 2000 Despite struggling initially in the Premier League, it did not take long for Henry’s immense class to shine through. His run of scoring in seven consecutive games towards the end of the 1999-2000 campaign gave Arsenal fans a glimmer of what was to come. EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR: Seven games, Arsenal, run finished February 2008 Before Adebayor was skidding on his knees to goad Arsenal fans, he was leading the line for them. His tally of nine goals in seven games helped the Gunners to six wins in that time, with Arsenal en route to a third-placed finish. The Foxes marksman now stands shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Alan Shearer and Ian Wright amongst others, but he remains three games off matching Ruud van Nistelrooy’s hot streak in 2003. Here Press Association Sport looks at the longest individual scoring runs in Premier League history. Press Association RUUD VAN NISTELROOY: 10 games, Manchester United, run finished August 2003 The prolific Dutch striker scored in the final eight games of the 2002-03 season as United clinched the title, before prolonging his run into the first two games of the 2003-04 campaign. RUUD VAN NISTELROOY: Eight games, Manchester United, run finished January 2002 Around 18 months before his 10-game streak, Van Nistelrooy enjoyed a fruitful festive period in the 2000-01 season, notching in eight successive games. That run also included his first hat-trick for United as they hammered Southampton 6-1 at Old Trafford on December 22, 2001. DANIEL STURRIDGE: Eight games, Liverpool, run finished February 2014 Luis Suarez stole a lot of the headlines as Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool challenged for the league title in 2013-14, but Sturridge notched against Everton and Arsenal as he scored in eight successive games. JAMIE VARDY: Seven games, Leicester, August to October 2015 (not finished) Man-of-the-moment Vardy has catapulted himself into illustrious company with nine goals in his last seven matches. The 28-year-old leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 10 strikes and is bound to draw admiring glances from other clubs if he can keep this up. last_img read more

Calderon Hosts Final Real, Atletico Derby

first_imgBreaking Atletico Madrid’s recent stranglehold on a fixture that used to be a foregone conclusion for Real Madrid is the challenge facing Coach Zinedine Zidane ahead of today’s Madrid derby, the last at the Vicente Calderon stadium.Real enjoyed utter domination over their rivals for 14 years but the tables have turned and they have not won a league derby since Jose Mourinho oversaw a 2-1 win at the Calderon in 2013. Atletico have won four and drawn two of the last six league derbies, just one demonstration of how charismatic Argentine coach Diego Simeone has transformed the fortunes of the sleeping giant he took over in December 2011.“He is a coach with a unique capacity to communicate, that’s why he has got where he is and why he was able to dig us out of the trouble we were in,” said Atletico captain Gabi, who has won the La Liga title, King’s Cup and reached two Champions League finals under Simeone.“With one look or gesture he’s able to speak to any player, and that’s why at the moment the most important thing for this club is the fact we have Simeone with us.”Real still have the upper hand on their neighbours in European competition and Saturday’s game is the first meeting between the teams since Real’s penalty shootout victory in the Champions League final last May.The game takes on extra significance for being the last league derby at the Vicente Calderon stadium with Atletico due to move from the 50-year-old ground to a new 67 000 capacity arena next year.“That it will be the last derby at the Calderon makes it exciting and special. It will be strange not to experience it there again, as we have had unforgettable moments there,” Gabi added.The game will have plenty of significance in the title race. Real top the La Liga standings on 27 points, two above Barcelona in second and six clear of Atletico in fourth.A Real victory would stretch their advantage over their city rivals to nine points and severely dent Atletico’s hopes of repeating their La Liga triumph of 2014.Atletico are hopeful top scorer Antoine Griezmann will be able to start despite returning early from international duty with France due to a foot injury,Real welcome back captain Sergio Ramos after five weeks out with a knee problem but the European champions will be without midfielders Toni Kroos and Casemiro and striker Alvaro Morata due to injury.Champions Barcelona host Malaga hours before the derby and will be looking to capitalise on any slip from Real. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Eagles Return to Training as Mikel Doubtful for Clash with Ghana

first_imgThe former Chelsea star was substituted after 59 minutes of the better to be forgotten 2-0 loss to the Islanders.Eagles medical team will determine whether Mikel will be able to play in the Round of 16 tie.Bursapor defender Abdullahi Shehu is yet to recover from a hamstring complaint.The Franco-German gaffer who admitted at Sunday’s post-match press conference that there were injury concern in the Nigerian team was quick to say that SC Paderborn 07 full back Jamilu Collins has recovered and will likely get a starting shirt.Ola Aina was deployed as a left-back in all the group matches only because Collins had been on the sidelines after suffering a training ground injury on June 21.”I am still confident because we have everybody now fit only Shehu perhaps. We have recovered Collins, our left-back with a left foot,” said Rohr.”We will be able to have Ndidi in good fitness after 45 minutes of rest, Iwobi is very fit, one more match today for Ighalo, ninety minutes and Musa also, we’ll have more rhythm in the offensive department.”Now we are waiting for our opponent, we don’t know yet. We are preparing very well for the next match, I am still confident because I have a team who can play much better than they did today.”The Super Eagles recovery session on Monday lasted for about one and a half hours.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram After Nigeria suffered an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to debutants Madagascar in their last Group B match of the ongoing AFCON 2019, Rohr led Eagles back to training yesterday to begin plotting how to make amends.However, Captain of the team John Obi Mikel who suffered a knock during the clash with Madagascar on Sunday is not likely to be fit for Nigeria’s next game of the tournament on Saturday in Cairo.There is no confirmation yet even as speculations are rife here that Nigeria is likely to take on Ghana’s Black Stars in the Round of 16.last_img read more

Bleach: Blue misguided in Marquette choice

first_imgPlaying Style — In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Blue said the different styles of play were a big reason for him choosing the Golden Eagles.“I would say that had a big impact,” Blue said. “Marquette’s style of play is more fit for the Big East, and that’s up and down, in your face, hard-nosed defense. It’s like the difference between (scoring) 70 points a game and 50 points a game. There’s more shots going up.”First a little point and then my main point.Marquette plays “in your face, hard-nosed defense.” And Wisconsin doesn’t? Don’t get me wrong, I admired the man-to-man MU played when Tom Crean was coaching with Crean’s recruits. But I’m pretty sure Bo Ryan and the Badgers know a little something about hard-nosed defense. I believe Joe Krabbenhoft has the stitches and scars to prove it.My main problem though Blue, is the implication that you wouldn’t star in Wisconsin’s boring swing offense.Let me introduce you Devin Harris and Alando Tucker. Maybe you’ve heard of them… or seen them in the NBA.As a combo guard, Harris is more comparable to you, so let’s look at his numbers. In Harris’ junior year, before he turned pro and was picked No. 5 overall, Harris averaged 19.5 points and 4.4 assists per game. Last season at Marquette, the Gold’s leading scorer was Jerel McNeal at 19.8 points per game. And in case you didn’t know Blue, McNeal went undrafted.The point is, Ryan knows how to use talent when he gets it. That boring swing offense helped Harris earn a $42 million contract.Friends at Marquette — As Blue has made clear, he thinks of MU freshman Jeronne Maymon like a “brother.” I admit, I have no defense for this. The only thing I can say is I bet Keaton Nankivil could become your brother too. Just something to think about.Buzz Williams vs. Bo Ryan — In his interview with the Journal-Sentinel, you made it clear Blue that Williams was a huge reason for your Brett Favresque flip flop. Well stacking Ryan’s career wins next to Williams’ wouldn’t be fair, so I will omit it as evidence. Just consider this: Ryan has coached three Big Ten champs and two Big Ten tourney champs and the Badgers have been at March Madness every year under Bo.Williams simply has a bald head. To me, there is no comparison.I doubt this e-mail will change your mind, but you and the Badgers were a perfect match.When you next come to the Kohl Center, its not Blueeee you are hearing, but BOOOOOO.Michael is a senior majoring in journalism. He can be reached at mbleach@badgerherald.com for more discussion on Blue. Vander Blue,I’m writing this e-mail not as a Badger Herald sports columnist, but as the sorrowful spokesperson for the UW student section, the Grateful Red.Five months ago you decommitted from Wisconsin basketball after giving an oral commitment to the Badgers following your sophomore year of high school.Ross was less hurt when Rachel suggested they take a break than UW fans were upon hearing this news.Still, students who follow recruiting here (Max Henson) held out hope. You kept Wisconsin on a short list of schools including Florida, Arizona, UCLA and in-state rival Marquette, and the rumors were your mother desperately wanted you to stay in-state.Clearly, you are a bona fide recruit. Besides being given five-stars by Rivals.com, you have attracted attention of three schools outside the state that have seven Final Four appearances and two national championships between them this decade. The only other time Wisconsin finds itself on a list with those schools is in Playboy’s Top 10 Party Schools article (which is nothing to be ashamed of).Last Sunday though, you finally picked a school and chose to become an MU Warrior, err, Jumping Jesuit, I mean a Gold…?(Quick Google search)Right, you chose to become a Marquette Golden Eagle.I’m writing you not as a bitter and irrational fan, but as someone who as given much thought about which basketball program is in your best interests.And I have to say, picking Marquette over Wisconsin is like the Bears trading for Jay Cutler. It seemed like a good move at the time, but now the over-hyped frat boy has a 10-7 TD to interception ratio, while Kyle Orton has led the Broncos to a perfect record with nine touchdowns to a single interception.Best as I can tell, there are four major reasons you chose Milwaukee over Madison.And you guessed it, I have a response for every one of them.Big East vs. Big Ten — The 16 teams that are mostly on the East Coast — except for Marquette, DePaul, Notre Dame, Louisville and Cincinnati… OK, whose idea was it to call them the Big East? — form the top conference in college hoops.This is undisputed.It’s also a reason a top recruit who wants to play in the NBA one day should stay the hell away.Think about it. Going up against the top competition every game can help you improve. Or it can wear you down and expose weaknesses to be picked apart on film by scouts. It also means if you aren’t among the very best, you are probably going to be overshadowed by whatever stud UConn or Syracuse produces.We can call this the Memphis/Stephen Curry Effect. John “I swear it’s a coincidence that two of my final fours have been vacated” Calipari has seen five players taken in the NBA Draft in the past two years. For two of them, Robert Dozier and Chris Douglas-Roberts, I can confidently say would not have been drafted if they played in the Big East instead of against weaker competition in Conference USA, and I think its doubtful Joey Dorsey would have been drafted either. Curry has benefited from the same situation. The sharp-shooting 87-pound guard is definitely an NBA talent, but I’m skeptical he would have been picked No. 7 overall without being able to fire at will at Davidson.It is pretty simple Blue. You will stand out against the weaker competition in the Big Ten, increasing your draft stock and livelihood.

Olivero: After much-awaited win at USF, time is now for Marrone, rest of SU

first_img Published on October 13, 2010 at 12:00 pm Doug Marrone is one who has never shied away from the fact that things take time. His ascent to the Syracuse head coaching position took time — 17 years. Marrone’s attempt to groom 22 players of Big East caliber who fit his mold took time. And that win last week, the win in which Syracuse leapfrogged everyone in the Big East, the win in which he shed a tear for his players — the ones who have needed the time to grow — took time. But for any meaningful stretch of time, there is a beginning. ‘All the hard work and everything put into getting to that point is just beginning,’ Marrone said Monday. ‘So it’s still a long way to go. We aren’t even halfway done with the season. We have to keep getting better every week. I have been saying that for a long time, but it’s the truth.’ It may be ‘a long way to go,’ but here it comes. Quickly. Time is about to fly by. This Syracuse team doesn’t have any more time. Pittsburgh enters the Carrier Dome Saturday. Then there is the trip to West Virginia. That luxury of time — the luxury Marrone’s program has used as a crutch through eight wins and nine losses — is gone.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text The time is now. The time is the next two weeks. The growing and the steps that it took to get Syracuse to its first Big East-defining win over South Florida took all of the 666 days since Marrone took the job. Syracuse didn’t make the leap until last Saturday. But time’s up. With the upcoming two weeks, it could become two weeks full of two seasons worth of exponential growing for this Orange team. Something SU football hasn’t encountered in recent memory, thanks to this year’s schedule. Last Friday, the Orange was still, to some, the laughingstock of the Big East. SU ranked at 93rd on the Rivals.com weekly power rankings — dead last in the Big East. Two spots below Rutgers. Forty-four spots below South Florida. Thirty-eight spots below Pittsburgh. Sixty-six spots below West Virginia. But in one week, Syracuse went from cellar to recognized. Now win this week, and you are a Big East favorite that only had seven days to relish the status of a marginal Big East contender. You are now a team traveling down to West Virginia on a bandwagon ready to compete in a game to become the Big East’s favorite. And you are favored by one point in this week’s game. It is funny how time has worked for this Syracuse football team this season. The time and the ramifications of it are reflected and pertain to the schedule Syracuse had to traverse. With the first four games, all the talk was of how the game against Akron and the two games versus Maine and Colgate refused to let fans and critics know exactly what this team is. Through four games, everything was a question mark. Time froze: Could this offensive line play? Who knows. Can this offense become balanced? Nothing has been proven yet. No longer the case. Within the span of these three weeks, time will not stand still. It will take the route of Antwon Bailey versus Colgate. Straight north and south. Zipping right by. But for the Orange, any kind of an exponential growth curve yielding in the Big East’s most favorable path to a BCS bowl following the WVU game starts with Saturday. And it starts with a withering down of the overarching theme canvassing this squad right now. It is about not wasting any time. SU can’t take time Saturday. As the one-point favorite against a team that doesn’t know where it is at right now, admitted by head coach Dave Wannstedt, SU has to blitz through and through. Not just on a Scott Shafer stunt call, even though that will be a part of it and aplenty. ‘I thought of wiping the slate clean,’ Wannstedt said. ‘I’ve been in these meetings, and I’ve done it before where you put a drape up over the first half of the season. I’ve done all of that stuff. I’m not sure where we’re at right now, how we’re trying to figure out who is doing what and how we’re trying to piece everything together.’ It has always been about mindset for Marrone. Saturday, it will be about a ‘go out and take what is yours’ mindset in the first quarter. Hit and wither away that low Panthers confidence until it is no longer there. But that can’t take time. It has to be an instant. And if the Orange is to get to 3-0 in the conference, the time it took to pummel Pitt in the Dome will seem like an instant over the course of these 21 days. Time stood still for this program since Marrone took over. Now he and SU must make sure time doesn’t pass them by.
