Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17

Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17 after dominating most of the season. All of the efforts exerted not only by the players of Chelsea in training hard but also their manager in showing his continuous support for the team seems to have paid off well, when they successfully brought back the championship from winning the EPL this year. This victory of the team allowed them to earn their 5th title in the last 12 years. This is the reason why they are considered to be one of the country’s best team, especially now that they have proven it yet again with their 1-0 score against West Brom.

For this victory of Chelsea, there is no doubt that their manager, Antonio Conte has played a very important role, especially when he brought in Gianluca Spinelli to be their goalkeeping coach. Because of this decision of his, many people, especially the fans of the team has witnessed an improvement in terms of the performances of Thibaut Courtois this season. It was also a great move for the team to have signed N’ Golo Kante, who is known for doing the work of two men and bringing back David Luiz. On the other hand, during their winning run, Chelsea was also able to beat Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Everton and Manchester United and this equaled the record that were set by Arsenal in a single season.

Now, when it comes to the best players of the team for this season, Cesar Azpilicueta is included in the list for he has shown great versatility throughout the entire season, being given 5 position and being able to fulfill his job well. In addition to that, he is also the player who has produced more passes as compared to the other players in the Premier League this season. Apart from Cesar, Eden Hazard, dubbed as Chelsea’s Ronaldo, also showed a great performance. He was dubbed as the 2nd most fouled player in this season. Of course, we should also not forget N’ Golo Kante, who already won the Football Writer’s Association’s Award and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award.

On the other hand, the opponents of the team also did their best, although it wasn’t enough for them to be able to return in victory. Nevertheless, we also cannot deny the fact that they have great players as well like Harry Kane of Tottenham and Leroy Sane from Man City. However, although Arsenal do have Mesut Ozil, they have experienced a couple of bad results, especially when they were defeated by Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Also, while Liverpool has been doing a great job on the first half of the season, things have started to go wrong in the latter part of the season, with some of their players becoming injured.

All in all, Chelsea deserves to Win the EPL 2017. Nevertheless, all of the teams who have participated this season deserves to be given a loud applause. After all, they were able to give us a very good game and season overall. On the other hand, with the bar set high, let’s look forward on whether Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Everton, Manchester United and Arsenal would be able to recover next season. Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17, can they do it again next year?

USMNT Way Behind To Qualify For WC 2018

usa-vs-mexicoUSMNT way behind to qualify for wc 2018,
and any more ties or losses here forward looks like no Russia 2018 World Cup for US.
2-1 loss for the US vs Mexico in Columbus was not a good start.
The US Men’s National Team battled through an intense match, but succumbed to 4-0 defeat to Costa Rica right in the first qualifier of the Final Round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Even in the first half the two teams carve out the chances, Johan Venegas, Costa Rica forward, has his header broke the deadlock right in the 44th minute of the game. The US Men’s National Team came out in the second frame of the game looking for the equalizer. On the other hand, as the team pushed forward, the other team was able to take advantage on the multiple occasions.
In the 68th minute of the game, Bolanos finished right before Joel Campbell, a substitute who grabbed a brace in the 74th as well as 78th to cement the victory for the home side right before the crowd at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica.
The US Men’s National team’s defeat brings a very intense end to the 2016 for the US, which is 12-6-1 and was finished 4th at the Copa American Centenario. They finished over its Semifinal Round World Cup Qualifying group to move on to the Hex.
But how much trouble has the team suffered after losing the first two games?
It was very sad news for the US Men’s National Team that they did not get off to a good beginning in the Hex, losing to Mexico and Costa Rica.
There would be 8 different games in the Hex, which would be played for the next 11 months, with different countries in top three that would be automatically be qualified to the World Cup. The 4th place team will face the 5th place team out of Asia right in the playoff for another place in the quadrennial tournament.
Way back four years ago, US Men’s National Team travelled to Honduras for the very first match of the Hex, but they lost 2-1. The team was able to rebound a month after and a half later, thus beating the team Costa Rica with the score of 1-0 in the Snow Game. The team would finish the Hex with 22 points, which is the most of any team during 2014 cycle.

 

Just take a look at this chart and you will see how much trouble the team had.

Points thru 2 games # of teams # to finish 3rd or higher # to finish 4th
6 2 2 0
4 8 5 1
3 6 4 1
2 5 0 1
2 6 4 1
0 3 0 1

Upon seeing the numbers, it is easy to say that the team had zero points from the first two games. Only the team Trinidad & Tobago has successfully qualified for the World Cup right after losing their first two games in the Hex. Though the US Men’s National team has suffered much trouble, they still have the opportunity to prove themselves in the next FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Their loss serves as their motivation to make the most out of the next games. USMNT way behind to qualify for wc 2018, and it will be a miracle if they make it.

Among the teams that would be competing for the title, the USA women’s soccer team is one of the most anticipated ones. This is because they are the reigning champions for the World Cup and this time, they are aiming to win the title for the 4th consecutive time. If they won in the Olympics, then they would be creating a new history for being the first team to have both titles at the same time.

Well, it is not impossible for them to achieve it, as they have the top players in the world Lloyd, Morgan, Heath, Dunn, and the whole Defense, Klingenberg, O’hare, Sauerbrunn, Johnston, Krieger and Hope Solo on their team. Also, in the last 2 Olympic finals, it was Lloyd who was able to score the winning goal. Also, all these time, they have been doing a great job in the position they have given.

As expected, Lloyd shows great enthusiasm in the game and she was also the one who made it possible for the USA soccer team to earn their first goal with her perfect arcing shot. They became the leading team with the score 1-0. As the game continues, Alex Morgan was able to contribute another goal for the team, which has been the last goal of the game. As a result, team USA won with a score of 2-0. The game has been a great start for the team and has been a great news for their fans, both those who have been watching the game live in Brazil and in their own home.

Unfortunately, Megan Rapinoe was not able to play in the field as her right knee has been injured and is still recovering. Some said that her absence in the game can be felt, especially during the times when the American team had a hard time launching an attack against their opponent, New Zealand. Also, Hope Solo has received jeering from the public but who cares? What matters the most is that they were able to win the game.

Based on their performance, one can see that they have remained positive and active throughout the entire game. They also did not have a hard time acquiring victory, with Morgan and Lloyd who contributed the most. They have also become more comfortable during the second half as they were able to acquire two goals, making it quite difficult for New Zealand to beat them.

There have been no goals allowed in the first two games and Columbia ended in a 2-2 draw.  By seeing how great they have played the game, it would not be impossible for them to win the gold medal. They just need to continue on doing a great job. Meanwhile, Rio de Janeiro was able to win in the bidding process for the Olympic Games this year.

USA Copa America 2016 Final Set

argentina 2016 copa americaUSA Copa America 2016 final set Chile will play Argentina for the cup

Sunday June 26th at 7pm CST in East Rutherford. The USA made a good run

challenging all teams they played in the Copa and making it to the final four teams left.

Only to lose to number one world ranked Argentina. But the USA improvement was on

display in the first 4 matches.

The home advantage did nothing against Argentine Lionel Messi’s brilliance as the Argentina advances serenely to finals of Copa America Centenario, 4 – 0, in a match Argentina skillfully controlled from the start to finish.

Argentina will meet Chile in Copa Final and will seek to win their first major title since they claimed the 1993 Copa finals. Lionel Messi’s goal from his stunning free-kick made him the country’s top goal scorer. His 55th goal took him to the spot and cleared of Gabriel Baustuta’s total goal, and he also added 2 assists in game for a very good measure.

But how did Argentina had a clear win over the US? It is because they had Lionel Messi on their side, and US does not. Messi led his team to victory in Copa America semi-final match in NRG Stadium in Houston and basically ended the contest in first half with a goal and an assist. The game wasn’t even as close as indicated four-goal deficit as US didn’t register even a single shot. In addition, the game with ended greatly in favor with Argentina as they have 68% of the possession, and was in complete control from the starting or opening minute.

It was not all Messi who worked for the win of Argentina, but they also have Gonzalo Higuain who scored twice and Ezequiel Lavezi who scored the first goal of the game, as well as the player number 10 who assisted on those goals to make his teammates score. Because of their combined efforts, Argentina reached the championship match with Chile, with a chance to break their extended drought on championship title.

After the loss of USA team, you will clearly see why Argentina is the top team in the world today. While Argentina showed their superiority on Tuesday, the USA team played against them without Jermaine Jones, Alejandro Bedoya and Bobby Wood, who were all suspended from red and yellow cards. Despite their missing personnel, when losing in 4-0 match, you are not talking about anyone not on the field. It is plain and simple: they are really outmatched.

On the other hand, Messi discussed the team’s overall effort in 2016 Copa tournament, per ESPN FC. According to him, it was their goal when they participated in the tournament, to play the finals, and fortunately, they made it. Argentina showed spectacular performance since day one, and they really deserve the finals. Now, Argentina is a step away from the championship title.

Argentina is the top team in official FIFA rankings, and it did not take long to prove why. Lavezzi concealed a header in 3rd minute off a great placed chip pass from Lionel Messi after the Argentina corner to place the US behind 1-0. According to experts, this was the fastest goal the US ever allowed in Copa America. While the US defense didn’t allow a second goal throughout the middle part of first half, they still have trouble in keeping up with the overwhelming skill level of Argentina.

U.S. to face Colombia for Third Place Saturday June 25th 7pm CST U of Phoenix Stadium

Leicester City Wins EPL 2015-2016 Season

Leicester City Wins EPL 2015-2016 Season

Leicester Outfoxes The Competition And Wins It All

You’ve got slightly better odds at being killed in a car crash. Slightly better than what? Slightly better than Leicester City’s chances of winning the Premier League at the beginning of this football season. Yet, the club fought against the five thousand to one odds and won the league. It was the first time since 1978 that a recently promoted second tier team has accomplished this feat – the last was Nottingham Forest. Nobody saw he East Midlands team coming, least of all Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United who couldn’t snag a win from the Foxes during their 22 and 36 season (they only lost three times all year, a feat in and of itself). This victory is made all the more poignant by the fact that Leicester is a small market team. The city itself isn’t that big and the team came in fourth in terms of player salaries by spending 48.2 million pounds. Manchester United spent 203 million pounds this year, for those of you counting that’s over four times as much. This goes to show that brilliant coaching (handled beautifully by Claudio Ranieri) and a drive to win can count for more than pounds in terms of winning the league. What this says to English Football is that it’s really not about who can spend more money or attract the biggest sponsors. It truly is still about heart, and millions of kids worldwide take to the pitch every day for just that reason. That’s not to say that money isn’t still heavily involved, but it’s good to know that it’s not always the predominant factor in football – A message that’s sorely needed after the FIFA fiasco of last year. And it’s telling that Gianni Infantino said of the Foxes win “It’s the magic of football.” Because hard work, mental fortitude, fair play, and talent couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it, and talent clearly wasn’t a problem for Leicester City this year. Jamie Vardy was awarded the Guinness World Record for most goals scored in a Premier League season. Number 9 scored twenty-two goals. That’s right, folks, 22 goals this season. This isn’t meant to take anything away from the efforts of his mates like Captain Wes Morgan or the acrobatic Kasper Schmeichel, but it truly is a phenomenal feat. So rejoice Leicester. There definitely will not be any relegation next year, at least not for your club. Yet, with every sunny day there is always the threat of a dark cloud – one must wonder how Leicester will handle being top dogs . . . er, foxes next season. The buck with the biggest rack always has the largest price on his head and the top contenders of the Premier League will be furiously tracking the foxes scent.

Cheers for Leicester City Wins EPL 2015-2016 Season



US Women’s Soccer Team Built-In Excellence

WC Winners US Soccer Team 1999   US women’s soccer team built-in excellence and over 30 years in the making.

Many talk about how well the 2015 World Championship US team played this year

in Canada, however in 1985 it all started with a shoe string budget and a huge dream.

In August 1985 Coach Mike Ryan took the US women’s team to their

 

first international match, in 1991 the US entered the first ever women’s world cup event in China. The

US won their group stage and eventually made it to the final four. These final teams

have been some of the strongest women’s programs for over 24 years, Germany, Norway, Sweden and

the USA have been strong for most of these last three decades. Japan, China, France and Brazil now

have up and coming talent to challenge for top billing in the women’s game, but the US have won the

most, and have always been the biggest threat. Coaches like Anson Dorrance, Tony Dicicco, Lauren

Gregg, April Heinrichs, Greg Ryan, Pia Sundhage, and now Jill Ellis with Tom Sermanni stepping

in one year to help out Jill Ellis. These coaches and their assistants / trainers put this US team from

almost nothing to the well oiled success machine in the world of women’s football today. Many great

players laid the foundation for what we have today in the US success, Carin Jennings and April

Heinrichs were two of the first success stories. Then came Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy, Kristine Lilly,

Joy Fawcett and maybe the strongest defender the US has ever had Michelle Akers. Akers would

mark the best players from any opposing team and crush their will to be affective, all while she battled

chronic fatigue syndrome. Even though Michelle was one of our toughest warriors and Hamm, Foudy,

Lilly, and Fawcett always found a way to get a goal. Defender Carla Overbeck and Goalie Briana Scurry

really took this team into the late 90’s getting ready for the 96 Olympics in Atlanta and the 1999 US

hosted World Cup. The US won the gold medal in 1996 but NBC did not air the match or even cutting

away for a five-minute peek into the ladies winning the gold. This bad decision was corrected in 1999

when the US hosted the world cup and the largest stadiums were booked by Fifa to play these

matches. Every one of the games was a sell out. ABC got it right, when we all witnessed the China

USA match go to pk’s. Every US player nailed theirs, and Briana Scurry stopped the 3rd Chinese

players shot, setting the stage for Brandi Chastain’s ice water in the veins shot that sent the US

into a victorious ROAR. And oh, btw, she took her jersey off in the celebration showing her sports bra,

you’ll see more shin on any given beach these days, but some people had to make it an indictment,

listen you win a world championship and let’s see you react after 17 yrs of hard work and practice /

training. Listen, practice your pk’s,  look at the ball, take a big breath before you start your approach

to the ball, get your heart rate down, then attack it and put it on frame to a corner with pace, don’t

over kick it, you have the advantage, use it , practice it. Overbeck, Fawcett, Lilly, Hamm, and Chastain

all showed you how to take a pk, learn it, win it.

The 1999 Rose Bowl final was the largest watch US women’s sporting event ever watched. It’s great

watching these great plays over and over. Look for a defensive save Kristen Lilly made vs China in

1999 using her head just like Klingenberg did this year vs Sweden.

Watch this great video below about the US women’s soccer team built-in excellence and remember where we came from.


OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs

Super Carli Lloyd US World Champion  OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs!!!

Carli Lloyd has put herself and team USA into the record books.

Amazing performance from ALL US women’s team members and coaching

 

staff to pull this one off. With all the pressure of knowing we as good as we are, and playing in our back

yard of Canada for most of the US to attend if they wished, this couldn’t have gone any sweeter.

Wambach’s last match played for the US and probably Christie Rampone’s last match however both

women seem to be able to play into their sixties if they wish. What a send off for the veterans of the

squad and a huge step up for any women wanting to join this amazing bunch of athletes. This defense

is one of the strongest in any World stage competition, men or women, only one goal given up by this

whole team going into the final. Not just how good Hope Solo (goal keeper) played,but the front four of

the defense and the subs that came in. Look for underlined names with mp3 interview links during

World Cup 2015 from US players below, done by Men in Blazers. Awesome showing by Becky

Sauerbrunn, Julie Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Kelley O’Hara, Heather O’Reilly,

Lori Chalupny, and the midfield who dropped back so much to help. This team got better every match,

and rolled with the punches. Wonderful patterns of play produced by Christen Press, Tobin Heath,

Lauren Holiday, Morgan Brian, Amy Rodriguez and Shannon Boxx. Sydney Leroux saw sometime

but it was Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe who put the pressure on the opposing defenses and

opened up lanes for Carli Lloyd to work her magic. Rapinoe and Morgan really took alot of the

concentration of the opponents. Lloyd was on a mission!  And no one could stop this dynamo…

Setting world cup records with the only hat trick in the final match, the time it took to achieve it,

16 minutes total from one to third goal,  received both the Silver Boot and Golden Ball award for

this world cup tournament. Having 6 goals and assisting on three others, Lloyd was the force to put

the US into the history books. Three time world cup winners, the US has the toughest team in the World!!!

If you are a U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, or U15 player,  go out and see these women play, they

have a great league at http://www.nwslsoccer.com . Once again congratulations Coach Jill Ellis,

Hope Solo gets the Golden Glove Award,

and OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs!

Carli Lloyd for President….

Shout out to Unbelievable Super Subs Teammates of the World Champ’s Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Harris, and Alyssa Naeher
