Nicky Adams brings new philosophy, mentality to struggling program

first_img Published on September 4, 2019 at 11:21 pm Contact Arabdho: [email protected] | @aromajumder On the chain-link fence beside a shed at Hookway Athletic Field, there are 50 ribbons, all different colors. Each player on the Syracuse women’s soccer team owns two — one for each win this season. Some tied the ribbons on top of one another, others chose to space them out.It’s a tradition started this season by first-year head coach Nicky Adams. Already, three games into her tenure, the Orange are two-thirds of the way to the amount of ribbons they would’ve put up last season.“It reminds us that winning matters and the feeling that we had when we won,” Adams said.Syracuse (2-1) first contacted Adams, then-head coach of Rice, this past February after the Orange lost 13 straight games to end its season. Phil Wheddon resigned less than 24 hours after SU’s worst season in program history. By early March, Adams was named his successor, the Orange’s fourth head coach since the program started in 1996. Adams said she’s here for the “long haul” and believes the administration will give her time to turn the program around and become a contender in the Atlantic Coast Conference, one of the toughest leagues in women’s soccer.“I felt like I was ready for the next challenge,” Adams said. “I’ve been offered other jobs in the past but the timing with my family didn’t work out, and it was just crazy how the timing this time with Syracuse worked out. When I came for my interview, everything just felt right.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textArabdho Majumder | Asst. Digital EditorGrowing up in El Paso, Texas, a border town, Adams said she grew up playing a Hispanic-influenced brand of soccer — more about heart and passion than tactics, she said. Women’s soccer was still early in its development at the time — the first Women’s World Cup was in 1991 — and there was only one select team in the region.As a high school freshman, Adams participated in an Olympic Development Program. Adams’ maiden name is Thrasher, and Texas A&M head coach G Guerrieri said the name was fitting once he saw her play for a club team in El Paso.“She basically thrashed through a team of much older players and just was playing at a speed that was different to anyone else on the field,” Guerrieri said.Adams received a letter from Guerrieri at the start of her junior year of high school, prompting Adams’ mother to call him. Adams got the spiel from her and remembered saying “these things don’t happen very often, and I’m in a position to go be a part of a top 25 school.”So she went to College Station, Texas and again made a leap. Adams chose to forego her senior year of high school and went straight to A&M in 1997 as a “wide-eyed 17-year-old that didn’t even have a driver’s license,” she said.At the time, Guerrieri said most programs, including his, were just recruiting seniors. Very few players graduated high school early, which didn’t become a norm until around 2007, he added.Adams called Guerrieri her “second father” and credited him with breaking down soccer and teaching her the tactical side of the game. Their relationship came with plenty of commitment on both sides, and Guerrieri referred to Adams as a “soccer rat.” She’d always ask the coaches how and why they did things. She’d train for 45 minutes before team practices. Then, Adams would stay after to watch film with the coaching staff.“When you love something and you’re passionate about something and you have big goals and you’re put in a situation where people believe you can do it and want to help you,” Adams said, “you don’t want to disappoint either, so it was my No. 1 thing to do in college.”Eva Suppa | Digital Design EditorAfter a fractured fibula forced her to redshirt in 2000, a local U-9 girls team in the area approached her to coach them. Unable to play soccer and feeling lost at the time without it, she quickly grew to love coaching, Adams said. The girls looked up to her so much that they named the team the College Station Thrashers, Guerrieri said.Adams has been told in the past that her teams tend to mirror her competitive edge. Her father was a horse jockey, so she grew up around tracks watching him race, and while her passion and fierce competitive attitude turned to soccer, Adams just loves to win, she said. In her first two games as head coach for the Orange, she did just that.To start the season, Adams has encouraged her forwards to use their creativity, and throughout the year, she hopes to see improvements in her players’ soccer IQ with that added freedom. Her changes aim for a more attacking style of soccer on the pitch while attempting to bond with the girls off the field, whether it be giving full effort at practice or joining in on singing and dancing competitions with her players.“I love her,” junior Mackenzie Vlachos said. “She just has such a positive energy. She cares so much for this team, and she believes in us, and I think that really helps.”A slight smile starts to tug her players’ lips at the mention of their new head coach’s name. The coach who invited them over a handful of times already. Who joins them in singing Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” on road trips. And the one who embraced an exhausted Georgia Allen after a home-opener win, SU’s first in three years.Adams has become the pulse for a team that didn’t think it could win again.

Manchester City paint Premier League blue with 2nd title in 3 years

first_imgSamir Nasri and Vincent Kompany scored the goals for Man CityManchester City won the Premier League for the second time in three seasons on Sunday, completing its campaign with a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Ham that lacked any of the drama of its previous title.The Engineer Who Fixed Man City’s WoesUnlike the stoppage-time comeback required in the 2012 title decider, goals either side of halftime by Samir Nasri and Vincent Kompany provided a more serene end to what had been an exhilarating season.”You can’t repeat what happened last time,” City goalkeeper Joe Hart said. “This year, we’ve really come on strong at the end when we needed to.”Two years ago, City won the title on goal difference ahead of neighbor Manchester United after coming from behind to beat Queens Park Rangers on the final day. Sunday’s victory, though, meant Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Newcastle at Anfield was meaningless as City finished two points above the Merseyside club.As soon as the final whistle was blown, thousands of fans flooded onto the Etihad Stadium pitch, setting off blue flares. For a club that has spent so much time in the shadow of United – last year’s champion – it was just the fourth time in its 134-year history that fans could celebrate a league title.Just 15 years ago, City was playing in the third tier of English football, but the club’s fortunes were transformed after the influx of Abu Dhabi cash following a 2008 takeover.Making this victory all the sweeter is the fact that United, which beat City to the title by 11 points last May, ended this campaign in seventh place after imploding in the post-Alex Ferguson era.advertisementAlthough City spent just 15 days at the summit during a campaign when the lead changed hands 25 times, Manuel Pellegrini’s side surged to the top when it mattered most. The 60-year-old Chilean is ending his first season in English football as a double winner, having already won the League Cup victory over Sunderland in March.However, the league title looked out of reach for City just weeks ago after losing to Liverpool at Anfield. However, Liverpool collapsed toward the end with a loss to Chelsea and a draw at Crystal Palace which meant City only needed a draw at the Etihad to secure the title.But after an edgy start, Nasri scored with a shot from outside the area in the 39th minute and Vincent Kompany added the second from close range shortly after the break to let fans celebrate for much of the second half.”Liverpool’s game against Chelsea, I think that’s the twist of the season,” Nasri said.All City required was a draw, but after an edgy start this energetic and attacking team seized on the opportunity to finish the season in style. Against an uninspiring West Ham, City was in complete control, calmly knocking the ball around the pitch.However easily City unpicked the West Ham defense, finding a route to goal was proving more difficult. David Silva, so dynamic in this title-winning side, lashed the ball over from distance and Aleksandar Kolarov had a long-range strike tipped over by goalkeeper Adrian.But the goal that settled nerves in the stands came in the 39th minute, with Yaya Toure teeing up Nasri, who took two touches before curling the shot into the net off the inside of the post.Although Silva was denied by the woodwork in stoppage time, City’s second came just four minutes into the second half. From a corner, the ball bounced off striker Edin Dzeko, and the unmarked Kompany swept in City’s 102nd league goal this season from close range.The captain slid across the pitch in celebration, and the party truly started in the stadium. Unlike the rollercoaster season finale against Queens Park Rangers here two years ago, it was job done for City.West Ham was never going to spoil these celebrations, and City is at the pinnacle of English football once again. The challenge now is retaining the trophy for the first time, and replicating the electrifying domestic form in Europe to conquer the Champions League.These title celebrations, though, could be short-lived in the City boardroom, with UEFA on the verge of imposing sanctions on the club for overspending in breach of Financial Fair Play rules.last_img read more

I learn from [Edinson] Cavani as a goalscorer too.”The France international has benefited from playing alongside Neymar and Cavani since joining from Monaco, and he has noticed the Brazilian star is not as selfish as many believe.”People on the outside see a Neymar on the pitch, but that’s not him,” he said. Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid“People see him doing tricks and dribbles and think that he is only trying to enjoy himself, that he’s selfish and only thinks about himself. But when you share a dressing room with him you realise that it’s not the case.”It’s true that he’s a very kind person, that he is interested in others. He’s very nice, and he plays for the team first. It’s true that his football is all about dribbling and skills and you aren’t going to ask him to stop because he does it very well.”There’s nobody who dribbled like him in this aspect of the game, he’s a footballer who can win us titles and we have to take advantage.”last_img read more

North American Ports Must Adapt to Changes

first_imgzoom North American ports need to adapt to changes in customer demand and future industry trajectory, according to port and terminal operator APM Terminals.Speaking at the Journal of Commerce’s annual Port Performance North America conference, APM Terminals head of Hub Terminals, Jack Craig spoke about the challenges ahead for North American ports and how they compare to other ports in the world.“The customer landscape has changed and become much more competitive. We as an industry need to work together, adapt and respond or watch the cargo move elsewhere,” Craig said.The vessel alliances now reshaping the industry have been a success for ocean carriers and their quest for cost savings, asset efficiency and economies of scale.“Larger alliances, larger vessels and larger port call volumes per ship are a catalyst to improve performance at ports. The newly widened Panama Canal and heightened Bayonne Bridge in the Port of New York/New Jersey create new opportunities for larger ships plying the US east coast trade – and creates new demands on port infrastructure, port operations and all the stakeholders in the supply chain,” Craig continued.With the lower bunker prices of recent years, terminal costs have now become the highest cost for liner operators, which creates increased pressure on terminal margins “as our customers are expecting us to find ways to help them reduce costs year over year.”“Given the inflationary pressures built into large portions of a terminal’s cost base, this requires different thinking to remain competitive,” Craig informed.He also talked about the role of technology in the ports business in the context that every industry is using technology to improve the customer experience, create a safer working environment and improve competitiveness.“We can do this in a responsible way with our partners to grow the business, improve productivity and reliability for our customers and ensure the port industry business model is viable short and long term,” Craig concluded.last_img read more

Barcelona staff give players guard of honour

first_imgAfter Real Madrid’s refusal to give Barcelona the traditional guard of honour in respect for their recent La Liga title victory, the technical staff at the club rose to the occasion and applauded the players as they entered the pitch at the Nou CampPrior to Sunday’s “El Clasico”, Zinedine Zidane had announced that Real would not be giving their arch-rivals the guard of honour, after sealing the league title last weekend, due to the fact that Barcelona had failed to do the gesture themselves when the sides met at the Santiago Bernabeu in December after his side had won the FIFA Club World Cup.Despite the protests of both Barcelona and the Spanish press, Real remained firm on their decision and carried on with their pre-match preparations as normal.In light of this, Gerard Pique asked the technical staff to do the honour in Real’s place and so they applauded the team as they entered their home ground for the first time in front of their fans as Copa del Rey and La Liga champions.The coaching staff perform a guard of honor for the team ???? ????
