QPR fans want Holloway to axe his ‘star player’ for Brighton game

first_imgQPR fans on Twitter want Tjaronn Chery to be dropped for next week’s game at Brighton.The Dutch midfielder has four goals and three assists in the Championship this season, but has struggled in recent weeks, with boss Ian Holloway suggesting Chery is feeling the pressure of being Rangers’ “star player”.But after his indifferent display against Aston Villa, some supporters think Chery needs to be left out for the trip to the Amex on 27 January.Chery has to be dropped.— J. (@HoiIett) December 18, 2016Now leave Chery out and work out how to play not based around him. It might work, can’t be any worse.— Linda Fitzgerald (@Hoops9Linda) December 18, 2016Have to stop this over reliance on Chery too. He’s a very good player but he’s not the talisman in a way Taarabt or Austin was. #QPR— Ash Rose (@AshroseUK) December 18, 2016MISSING: Tjarron Chery. Not seen since last season. Any information welcome.— Steve Croudace (@57EV3) December 18, 2016The one #QPR player getting away with murder is Chery. Instrumental at the start of the season, but has gone missing over the past months…— Paul Nasr (@SkyPaulNasr) December 18, 2016Taarabt could only play under Warnock. It seems like Chery can only play under JFH #QPR #QPRFC— Ash (@_Ash_94_) December 19, 2016When will people realise that chery is so over rated— James ⚽️ (@qprjamesqpr) December 18, 2016But were the occasional tweets of support for Chery, such as this one…Don’t get the Chery abuse. The guy works his backside off, he tries things. Give the man a break.

Draymond Green’s astounding Game 2 should silence ‘overrated’ talk

first_imgCLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos or videos on a mobile deviceOAKLAND — A little more than a month ago, in an anonymous poll of NBA players conducted by The Athletic, Draymond Green was voted the most overrated player in the NBA.I sure hope no Portland Trail Blazers were part of that “winning” tally.Because if they were, they learned a truth the Warriors — and apparently too few others around the NBA — already know.

Ind vs WI: Rains ruined Dhoni’s plans

first_imgIndia captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni didn’t hide his disappointed stating that his plan was “ruined due to the rain” that stopped play for around 32 minutes during the final session of the second Test against West Indies that ended in a draw.”I am disappointed to some extent. The last session was evenly poised. My plan was ruined because of the rain, we got couple of wickets that were needed but bad light spoiled the party,” a dejected Dhoni stated at the post-match presentation ceremony.About his decision to offer a sporting declaration, Dhoni said that he was confident that 280 was a defendable total.”I thought 280 was enough in this venue since the outfield is slow which means you can add some 30 runs to the target. It was also not easy to play shots on this track.”The Indian captain did admit that it was a difficult track to bat on first up.”I think there was fair bit of moisture on the track on the first day. If we had bowled, we might have had bowled slightly fuller. Our bowlers have been really good in this series. Even though some of them have not taken wickets, they have put pressure on the batsmen,” he said.The skipper was full of praise for Ishant Sharma. “He has bowled really well and in absence of Zaheer Khan has proved to be our main strike bowler.”Ishant who had a match-haul of 10 for 108 was naturally elated after being adjudged man-of-the-match for his spectacular bowling.advertisement”I can’t forget this match as I have never bowled so well in a Test match. The wicket had uneven bounce but once you stuck to the right areas it yielded results,” Ishant said. He also thanked Zaheer Khan for mentoring him. “I am thankful to Zak as his advice has helped me bowl well.”Under pressure West Indian captain Darren Sammy was however happy that they had managed a draw in the Test match. “I will take this result. As long as we didn’t lose today, I was quite happy. We had a plan even down to the last 15 overs were on course but we lost too many wickets,” Sammy said.He has always regretted the batting effort and this time also it was no different.”It was a repetition of the first Test when we got them cheaply but couldn’t surpass their score although Bravo and Baugh played well in the second innings,” the Caribbean skipper said.The endeavour now will be to win the final Test and square the series. “We have to go all out to win the Test. I can’t fault the effort of our bowlers. Fidel got eight wickets and Rampaul aslo bowled well,” he stated.- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Rangers Feel The Blues, 2-1

first_imgNEW YORK –  While growing up in New Rochelle, N.Y., Kevin Shattenkirk watched Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch score many big goals.Given a chance to do the same at Madison Square Garden, the St. Louis Blues blue-liner made the most of his opportunity.Shattenkirk fired in the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period, and the Blues got the best of New York again in a 2-1 victory night.“There were a lot of emotions going through my body, but after the first couple of shifts it just felt like a hockey game again,” Shattenkirk said. “Once the goal happened, even more of a relief. I was happy and you could hear some people cheering.”Shattenkirk had his own rooting section. He secured 20 tickets himself, but estimated that 60 or 70 people he knows got tickets on their own to watch him play.He could hear them when he one-timed a pass from Alex Pietrangelo through a screen and past goalie Henrik Lundqvist — a la Leetch — at 3:09 for his eighth goal of the season.“There are a lot of things that I watched in him growing up, and he was a very special player. I try to emulate him as best as I can,” Shattenkirk said. “Those were areas that he always shined in.”Alexander Steen also had a goal for the Blues before leaving late in the second period with a lower-body injury. David Backes had two assists, and Jaroslav Halak made 34 saves in beating Lundqvist in a matchup of Olympic goalies.New York’s Rick Nash scored his sixth goal in four games — netting at least one in each — but Shattenkirk took advantage of Nash’s slashing penalty, scoring 9 seconds into the power play.Lundqvist made 23 saves in his return from a one-game absence caused by the flu. He allowed fewer than three goals for the seventh straight game, but still couldn’t find a way to stop the Blues — the only NHL team he has never beaten (0-4).“I was moving the way I wanted to,” Lundqvist said. “I am happy with the way I played, but it’s still very disappointing to not come out of here with at least one point.”St. Louis, which killed all three Rangers power plays, swept the two-game season series and has won seven of the past eight meetings. The Blues, beaten 7-1 at New Jersey on Jan. 21, have earned points in eight straight visits to Madison Square Garden. This was their first since Nov. 7, 2010.“It’s shameful that we haven’t been here more often,” Backes said. “You see the crowd, you’re in the city for a day or two, you feel that hype, and you know what playing the New York Rangers brings. I think it brought the best out of us.”The Rangers got even late in the second on Nash’s team-leading 17th goal. Derek Stepan sent a pass from behind the net to Nash, who stepped into a slap shot from the dot in the left circle and ripped a drive past Halak with 1:43 left.New York pressured the Blues for the remainder of the period and drew its second power play in the closing seconds.“We had a couple good looks,” Rangers captain Ryan Callahan said, “a couple Grade-A chances there right in front. We just didn’t get one past them there.”The Rangers outshot the Blues 28-18 through 40 minutes. “They’re a team that if we would’ve taken off the gas for 60 seconds, it could’ve been 3-2 the other way in a heartbeat,” Backes said.Steen gave the Blues a 1-0 lead with his 26th goal. A pass from Jaden Schwartz hit Steen’s right skate in front of the crease, caromed off Lundqvist’s stick and skate and trickled in at 8:38. The goal was briefly reviewed by video replay, and it was determined that the puck wasn’t kicked into the net.It was the fifth straight goal allowed by the Rangers since they had a 3-1 lead over the Islanders in the second period on Tuesday in a 5-3 loss. A late power-play goal was the winner in that one, too.Steen struggled to get to the bench after going hard into the boards in the second, but he was back soon after on the power play. He skated off for good with 2:57 left in the period. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said Steen is day to day.(Ira Podell, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal boss Emery: Willock can replace Ramseyby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery believes Joe Willock can fill the void left by Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere in their midfield.The Gunners released Wilshere a year ago with the 27-year-old joining West Ham, while Ramsey also left on a free transfer when he moved to Juventus this summer.“Willock started the pre-season with us last year, I didn’t give him more minutes but he was with us in every game, working in training, playing matches in the cup and at the end of the season,” said Emery.“He deserved to start this season with the first-team and with us. My decision was after I saw him the last two months of last season working with us, his really big challenge was that Jack Wilshere left here, Aaron Ramsey left and he had to take that opportunity to be with us.“The last months of last year was the moment I spoke with him and said: ‘For you it is a big challenge in the new season to do differently and really show us you can take their position in this squad’.“I told him he is improving but he needs to not stop that improvement, we are working with him to improve even more.“But, if his progression keeps going the way it is going right now, I don’t know when he will stop and how far he can go.” last_img read more
