Steven Gerrard plays down Rangers league table position

first_imgRangers Steven Gerrard’s men were impressive on Sunday leading to an emphatic away victory over Hearts and subsequent lead on the table but the manager says he is not carried away by the position.Steven Gerrard told Daily Mail:“It means nothing to me – and I’m not lying.”“It’s fantastic for the fans as it’s been too long. They can enjoy tonight but we have another big game in 72 hours (against Aberdeen at Ibrox) and that’s my focus.”“I said before the game it would be nice to be top, but I won’t think about that.”“All I will think about is what knocks we have, who is available for Wednesday and what am I going to do without Scott. I go straight to work for that game.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“I am not interested in the league (position). You get nothing for it now. We have worked hard to get there, but it’s a challenge for us to see how long we can stay there.”“People have games in hand and will breathe down our neck, but it’s a different responsibility. The players know that and we have to handle that.”“There’s no point getting carried away because we’re in early December and you get nothing for it right now.”“It was a very important result. It’s our first big win against a rival away from home and we’ll take confidence and belief from this result.”last_img read more

Toshack thinks Gareth Bale should emulate Ronaldo

first_imgFormer Real Madrid manager John Toshack, came after compatriot Gareth Bale strong as he believes the winger should emulate Cristiano Ronaldo.Gareth Bale is not going through the best times at Real Madrid, his compatriot John Toshack doesn’t like the way in which he conducts himself and thinks that he should be more like Cristiano Ronaldo.The Welsh player is currently going through another recovery process from a muscular injury, something that has become very common with him at the club.Toshack believes that Gareth Bale is making efforts that are directly affecting his performance, he is convinced that the Welshman can do a better job of understanding his limitations on the pitch and avoid certain risks.What John is asking Gareth Bale to do, is very similar to the time when Cristiano Ronaldo finally understood that he didn’t need to run all across the pitch and all he required was to save his energy only for the most important moments.Bale is regarded as one of the most important players in Los Blancos’s history already, his goals and assists have been crucial during the most important matches for the club.”Gareth Bale needs to copy Cristiano if he wants to stay at Real Madrid” says John Toshack https://t.co/lLGWU0yRnn pic.twitter.com/fDNGNJuIfR— AS English (@English_AS) January 21, 2019“Cristiano plays as a winger, he scores and assists. There is no doubt that Gareth Bale already is one of the best players in football history,” said Toshack via Diario AS.“If he wants to remain as such, he should try to imitate Ronaldo. If you only look at what he’s accomplished, you quickly think what could’ve been if it hadn’t been for his unfortunate injury record.”“So, obviously, his experience can help him diminish his game a little bit and play in shorter parts of the pitch while reading better what’s going on.”“I really hope that he can do a lot more than what he is doing right now, because there is no doubt that you always need to start over when you recover from an injury.”“As far as his physical recovery is concerned, you always have to get back up and it’s almost as if you had to come back two or three times every season.”“This whole situation has been very difficult for him, and that gives him even more credit in my opinion.”Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“What we never imagined would happen with him were the injury problems that were detected.”“I mean, he has missed almost as many matches as he’s played and that has obviously slowed him down quite a bit,” he concluded.📻Toshack, sobre el estado de salud de Bale: “Es una pena para Gareth”➡https://t.co/PeNT9WXzNA pic.twitter.com/KY2sTYIZYf— El Larguero (@ellarguero) May 31, 2017To the people who don’t remember, John Toshack was the man who discovered Gareth Bale and the one who gave him his very first cap for Wales when he was just a kid.Born a Welshman as well, John Benjamin Toshack is arguably one of the most important figures for his country and arguably one of the biggest talent seekers in football history.Under his belt, Toshack has an amazing record of discovering players such as Iker Casillas, Xabi Alonso, and Gareth Bale himself.If the ‘Cardiff Express’ wants to keep performing at the highest leve, he needs to start listening to his body and realize that he can no longer make those sprints that usually set him apart from all the other players.Bale is a very talented player with the ball at his feet, there is no need to rely so much on your acceleration when you know that you are risking a new muscular injury every time to sprint.Gareth has impressive finishing skills, imagination to create football for his teammates and team leadership. It may be time for him to evolve as a player.John Toshack “I’d recommend British players to go out, leave the UK to learn other leagues & cultures. It is not easy but it’s valuable. With that said, Aaron in Turin should not make the same mistake that Bale did in Madrid: the local language must be learned immediately.” pic.twitter.com/187qK2SOek— Tarek Khatib (@ADP1113) January 6, 2019Do you agree with Toshack or should Gareth Bale remain the same type of football player for the rest of his career?

DOD Installations Chief Lays out Path toward Future BRAC Decision

first_imgDOD opted not to include a request for a new round of base closures when it submitted its fiscal 2019 budget proposal earlier this year, but by no means have defense officials given up on the prospect of asking for a BRAC in the future. On Wednesday, the department’s installations chief told lawmakers that because the administration had just released its National Defense Strategy, it didn’t make sense to include a request for a new round. “We weren’t really in good conscience ready to ask Congress for an authorization for BRAC this year,” Lucian Niemeyer, assistant secretary of defense for energy, installations and environment, told the House Armed Services’ Readiness Subcommittee.Instead, officials decided to take a pause. “We’re looking at the National Defense Strategy; we would like to reevaluate to what degree we think moving forward base closures might help us carry out the defense strategy to become more lethal,” he said in response to a question from Rep. Joe Courtney (D-Conn.).The department is using the pause to reassess its most recent calculation of how much excess infrastructure it is carrying. Niemeyer told Courtney there were “some concerns” about the report DOD released last year that estimated 19 percent of its capacity was excess. The department is embarking on an effort with the services to take a closer look at how fully their facilities are being utilized. “We’re trying to get it to be an enterprise look. … and make sure we are optimally occupying our facilities.”When officials are confident they have a good handle on “exactly where we have excess,” they will brief the defense secretary. Niemeyer did not volunteer how long the process would take or what the next steps may be, however.He also reiterated the argument that a new BRAC round would not only help DOD save money but it also would provide an opportunity for the military “to get more lethal” by consolidating forces and realigning its installations. Unmanned systems, cybersecurity and other new missions were not significant factors during the last base closure round. “How do we lay in those new technologies onto our existing Cold War basing structure? Do we even know what a base of the future really should look like?” Niemeyer asked.Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Michael Starkey Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
