Walcott working ‘week by week’

first_imgArsenal forward Theo Walcott will not set himself any ambitious goals as he plots a steady return to full match sharpness. Press Association The England international made his first start in a year in the FA Cup third-round tie against Hull, and produced a few positive runs behind the defence despite lacking a finish in the penalty area. With his rehabilitation now almost complete – from, first the serious knee injury which shattered his World Cup dreams last summer and then a groin problem sustained on international duty with England in November – the 25-year-old feels achieving small targets can help make the biggest difference. However, more pressing is some defensive cover, with St Etienne captain Loic Perrin a player said to be on Wenger’s radar, along with Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin and New Zealand defender Winston Reid, who is out of contract at West Ham in the summer. There have also been reports Arsenal are preparing a shock £60million-plus bid for Real Madrid’s Spanish midfielder Isco. More likely, however, is the impending departure of forward Yaya Sanogo out on loan, although Wenger would prefer an English side rather than a return to France at Bordeaux. “I like to work week by week, so I forget about the big picture and the nine months (out). Week by week, hitting the goals and when you have achieved that, you can feel good about hitting something else,” Walcott said on Arsenal Player. “You need to just come into training with a smile on your face, enjoy it and that’s all you can do. I remember when I had one of my injuries before, I came in down in the dumps and rehab seemed to take so much longer. “You don’t want that, you want to come in and feel like you’re doing something each day. Even though it might be the same things at the start, you benefit when it comes to the end of it.” With both Danny Welbeck, who has been out with a thigh injury, and Olivier Giroud, serving a three-match suspension, set to be available for Sunday’s encounter against Stoke, Walcott could again find himself back on the bench, which could also include German playmaker Mesut Ozil for the first time since October after his knee problem. Another player uncertain of his place in the starting XI is goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who has found himself at the centre of some unwanted headlines following reports he was caught smoking in the showers after Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day, when he had been culpable for both goals. Fit-again David Ospina stood in for the Poland international against Hull, but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger had already indicated he was likely to rotate the goalkeeper for the FA Cup tie and so now has a direct choice to make, with Argentine Emiliano Martinez having offered back-up earlier in the season when Colombia international Ospina was injured. Arsenal are expected to look to add to the squad during the January transfer window. Legia Warsaw teenage midfielder Krystian Bielik, rated around £2million by the Polish club, and Uruguayan trailist Federico Valverde appear potential recruits for the future. last_img read more

Ken Rutherford and Andrew Jones smashed the fifties but Maninder Singh and Ravi Shastri’s two wickets helped India pull off a 16-run win.4)      Gavaskar’s brilliance: India beat New Zealand by nine wickets. (1987 World Cup)Gavaskar was one of the greatest Test batsmen of his era but in ODIs, he had not achieved much. However, in the game against New Zealand at Nagpur, Gavaskar finally ticked the one achievement which had eluded him. In a match full of records, India put in a clinical performance. Chetan Sharma’s hat-trick, the first in the World Cup, reduced New Zealand to 221/9. In response, Gavaskar blasted a century and Kris Srikkanth’s 75 helped India achieve a nine-wicket win.5)      India suffers in the wind: New Zealand beat India by four wickets. (1992 World Cup)At the ‘theatre of pain’, India were blown away by the clinical efficiency of the New Zealand team. Sachin Tendulkar blasted 84 and was well assisted by Mohammad Azharuddin’s 55 but in windy Carisbrook, Dunedin, New Zealand were simply too good.

Northwestern throttles Syracuse 48-27

first_imgEVANSTON, Ill. — Fifty-one seconds was all it took.In less than a minute, Northwestern showed Syracuse who was boss and with how much utter dominance they would boss the Orange around Saturday night.Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter completed his first four passes as the NU offense whizzed 75 yards down the field and scored on a Treyvon Green 8-yard reception. A 15-yard face-mask penalty sandwiched in the middle of the four completions didn’t help either.From that point on everything was crystal clear. The No. 19 Wildcats (2-0) bullied the Orange (0-2) in all facets of the game, running away with a 48-27 victory in front of 38,033 at Ryan Field in Evanston, Ill.The game’s first sequence set the tone for what would turn out to be a disastrous, painful night for the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn the very next drive, the script flipped. Well, sort of. This time the offense was anemic and the defense was good enough. But Syracuse was still on the wrong end of the exchange.Drew Allen was sacked for a loss on the first play, just like he was in week one. This time he fumbled, too, but Syracuse guard Ivan Foy recovered it.That lack of continuity and pure ugliness was a preview of what was to come all night. The Orange managed one first down on the drive, but only scrapped together three the entire first quarter.Syracuse’s run game was nonexistent yet again. Thirty-five rush yards at the half. One-hundred and thirty three by the end of the game.The passing game wasn’t much better. Drew Allen finished 27-of-41 for 279 yards, four interceptions and one touchdown before giving way to Terrel Hunt midway through the fourth quarter. Overall though, Syracuse struggled to generate any offensive fluidity all night.Northwestern, meanwhile, looked every bit the part of a legit Top 25 team. This wasn’t the same team that eked by the Orange a year ago in the final seconds. Rejuvenated and stacked with new and improved weapons, the Wildcats pummeled SU all night.The scariest part is that they didn’t have arguably their best player in Venric Mark. Mark bludgeoned Syracuse last year in the season opener, compiling a video game-esque 67 yards per punt return.On Saturday, with Mark out of the picture – and mercifully so for SU – Tony Jones emerged as an unstoppable weapon.Just like Penn State’s Allen Robinson thrashed the Orange last week, Jones took advantage of Syracuse’s incredibly inconsistent secondary, finishing with nine receptions for 185 yards and a touchdown.In the second quarter, Colter rushed for a 16-yard touchdown, Colton Jones caught a touchdown pass from Northwestern’s second quarterback Trevor Siemann, and SU found itself in an irreversible ditch.Syracuse trailed 34-7 at halftime. The second half was merely a formality. Colter, Jones and Green had done all the damage they would need to in the first half.The Orange chopped away at the lead bit-by-bit. A Prince-Tyson Gulley 9-yard touchdown rush made the score 41-20 Northwestern with 10:22 remaining.But Treyvon Green and the Wildcats responded to officially crush any miniscule change the Orange had at a comeback. Northwestern’s offensive firepower, combined with a woeful effort from Syracuse, paved the way for a Wildcat win, as the Orange remains winless.

Tuskegee Airmen discuss segregation in World War II

first_imgThe 29 days of Black History Month flew by, but not before one piece of history was able to land on campus. Two Tuskegee Airmen recounted their stories of breaking the color barrier in the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II on Monday.Jerry Hodges and Theodore Lumpkin Jr., who graduated from USC in 1950 and 1947, respectively, were part of the all-black unit in the U.S. military that served as aviators. At the time, the military was segregated, and African Americans were pushed to marginal roles in combat. When the Tuskegee Airmen started training in 1941, it was an experiment on the part of the U.S.“We thought, what we were doing, we were improving the lots of blacks,” Lumpkin, who worked with military intelligence, said of their service.The all-black unit received their name from the base where they trained — the Tuskegee Army Air Field in Tuskegee, Alabama. Tuskegee Airmen also included engineers, mechanics and intelligence officers.The unit’s success is largely credited for paving the way to integration of the whole U.S. military in 1948. Today, the U.S. Air Force is 14 percent African American, according to the Air Force Personnel Center.Hodges was in his early twenties when he started training with the unit. Now in his 90s and wearing a navy blue Tuskegee Airmen uniform, Hodges said his time in the service remains one of “most rewarding” things in his life.“If you can really devote yourself to a goal, you can accomplish it,” Hodges said. “Many times there are going to be disappointments, but you can overcome it. Nothing is easy, and nothing is free. You’re going to have to work for it, but it’s worth it.”Despite their prominence in black history today, the men both agreed that at the time they did not feel like they were writing themselves into the history books.“History is being made everyday like it’s being made here,” Lumpkin said. “If you do your best each and every time that you can, that history becomes your legacy and hopefully when people look at it in time, it will be something that they will look up to and say, ‘That was a really important thing that happened.’”The precise number of Tuskegee Airmen is still unknown. Lumpkin says most agree that the number is around 14,000. Many have passed away or are in their late 80s or early 90s.“There will probably never be another all-black Air Force again because the military was completely segregated,” Lumpkin said. “We have a integrated military that is outstanding. It’s really typical of the Air Force“We had sharecroppers, farmers and we had Ph.D.s, but we were all on the same level,” Hodges said. “Just the discipline that was enforced on us made us bond together. We still keep in touch.”Hodges said he still receives an email from one of his comrades every day. Today, both Hodges and Lumpkin are part of the Tuskegee Airmen veteran’s group in Los Angeles.The Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs and the Air Force ROTC Detachment 060 brought the two veterans to campus as part of their Black History Month celebrations. About 20 students, faculty and guests to campus attended the panel.Tayanna Todd, a sophomore majoring in film and television production and Spanish, said that when she found out that the legendary Tuskegee Airmen would be on campus she knew she had to attend. She has admired the unit’s service since she first heard about them in high school.“We don’t have many opportunities to have living history right here in our face,” Todd said. “So just having that opportunity to hear them and listen to them and see them and continue to have that history right there presented to us is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”Though Hodges and Lumpkin said they did not realize their impact while they were serving as young men, they are grateful to be able to see the progress the country has made in terms of racial equality.“It’s good to still be around, I’m pleased with that,” Lumpkin said.last_img read more
