David Moyes hailed January signing Juan Mata after watching him inspire Manchester United to victory at Newcastle. The 25-year-old Spaniard, a £37.1million capture from Chelsea, scored twice and set up Adnan Janujaz for his late strike as United cruised to a 4-0 Barclays Premier League win at St James’ Park. Manager Moyes said: “I think Juan Mata has played really well and I think he has made us better. He hasn’t had the goals in the earlier games, but I really thought he played fine in the games. Press Association “I don’t know where it’s going to be, I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I want to try to keep winning the games and see where we end up. “If we get into that situation, then we can make a call on it.” In the meantime, Moyes will turn his attention back to the Champions League and was hoping for good news on Wayne Rooney’s toe injury on his return to the north-west. He said: “I have not heard today from the medical team back at Carrington, but we are hoping it will be making progress. “He’s a really important player for us and we will give him every opportunity to be right with his toe.” Opposite number Pardew was in subdued mood as he reflected upon a seventh defeat in 10 league games – Newcastle have conceded 11 goals without reply in the last three – as a season which at one point promised so much continues to unravel at an alarming rate. He said: “It’s tough. I understand the fans’ frustration. They want to see exciting football at this stadium and we are just not producing it at the moment. “We need to just gather ourselves together and hopefully go to Stoke and put on a performance which is above the last three. “I thought the commitment was on the pitch, there was a lot of good commitment. We actually had some decent performances in and around that performance, but United were too good. “The last few results, particularly the last three, have been tough, tough games for us. “The opposition have been above us, there’s no doubt about that, and we have not really had any breaks in the games. “We had chances. The first goal was essential for us, I thought, and we didn’t get it.” “But recently he has started to get the goals and, more importantly, assists as well. “Over the last few seasons in the Premier League, Juan Mata is one of the best assist-makers and he has always got himself a good tally of goals. “We needed that and he is coming up with the goods now.” Moyes made wholesale changes for the trip to Tyneside with only three of the men who started against Bayern Munich in midweek – Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia and Marouane Fellaini – retained with one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final return leg. However, once Mata had fired them ahead from a 39th-minute free-kick which Magpies boss Alan Pardew felt should never have been awarded, they never looked back. Mata added a second from close range five minutes after the restart and Javier Hernandez put the result beyond doubt 15 minutes later, before substitute Januzaj wrapped up a comfortable win at the death with the help of a deft assist by the Spain international. The win lifted United into sixth place, with Tottenham not in action until Monday evening, but Moyes refused to be drawn on the prospect of a Europa League campaign. He said: “The job I would like to do is finish as high up the table as we can.
The Coach who is reputed for rescuing teams out of relegation or steering them to promotion which he did with teams like Wikki Tourist, Zamfara United, Sunshine Stars and now Gombe United boasted that he has all it takes to succeed in the top league.“You see the NNL is quite different with the NPFL, in the NNL 70% is power while 30% is intelligence but in the NPFL the reverse is the case as you require 70% intelligence and 30% power. I want to assure the club fans that i have all it takes in me to put the team in sound putting.“Premier league is not new to me. In 2002 I was with Zamfara for two seasons and in 2004 i was with Niger Tornadoes. I have also been ghe coach of Sunshine Stars”.The Coach who hails from Zaria in Kaduna State also spoke of how he would go about building his squad, pointing out that he would recruit additional players to strengthen observed weaknesses.“We are trying to reinforce the team with one or two players particularly in the attacking department. So, we are looking for who will put the ball in the net and we have already invited possible ones we think will improve our scoring ability.“We are also going to fortify our defence so that we will come out with a strong team at the end of the day”“Now we are in camp, the focus now is NNL Super 4, after that we will continue to build up and go for pre season in a different town so that players and officials will have full concentration”The team currently train twice in Gombe and the spirit in the camp is highShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Joshua TekidekGombe United made it back to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) after two seasons in the Nigeria National League (NNL) but the Technical Adviser, Hassan Abubakar is talking tough and predicting they wouldn’t be a pushover despite their returnee status.Abubakar is credited to have masterminded their return and he promising that the North East club will surprise Nigerians when the season began.“I want to surprise Nigerians, we will start on a strong footing and before or by mid season I want to assure you that we will be somewhere at the top”, said a boastful Abubakar.
Using Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, Cole Aldrich, Wesley Johnson and Jeff Green, Rivers defied the logic that suggests he keep one of his stars on the floor at all times.The gamble paid off, with the bench doubling the lead in the first half and helping give the Clippers a comfortable cushion in the second.Paul led the Clippers with 25 points, adding six rebounds and five assists. J.J. Redick scored 17 points, Griffin had 12 and DeAndre Jordan, although he scored just three points, grabbed a game-high 18 rebounds and had five assists.Crawford, who was presented with his record third Sixth Man of the Year trophy pregame, wasn’t the only scoring punch off the bench.While he led the reserves with 11 points, three others scored at least eight, including Aldrich, who also grabbed seven rebounds. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul were at the scorer’s table, ready to check in Wednesday night and try and close out Game 2. These are the players Rivers trusts most, part of the core that’s been through so many playoff battles together.But his eyes and his gut told him he should wait.He did it in the first half too, choosing to roll with his maligned all-bench lineups for critical minutes. And, it worked.The bench, once a weakness that defined the Clippers’ struggles under Rivers, dominated the game, helping the Clippers get a 102-81 win and a 2-0 lead in their series with the Trail Blazers. The bench’s success, a product of a nearly season-long process, is a sign that maybe this Clipper team is actually in a different place than past year’s editions.Before Game 2, Rivers, who insisted he wasn’t thinking further ahead than the game his team was about to play, didn’t mind looking back at the Clipper teams he had in the past two seasons.That group had a pair of brutal postseason conclusions that are just worse than normal losses.The pain from the Oklahoma City loss, from the Houston collapse, that was from deeper cuts than usual, Rivers said.“Ours felt like they were tougher the last two years and I think that’s kind of made us grow,” he said.Whether or not the Clippers truly learned anything is still to be determined.Three years ago, the team lost four straight after going up 2-0 over Memphis. Last season, the Clippers learned that a 3-1 series lead is worthless without the fourth win.Wednesday, they played like a team with a sense of urgency despite winning the series’ first game easily.The Clippers got out to a great start, hitting their first four shots including a pair of Redick 3s. Even though the shooting cooled down, the second unit opened up a lead that would grow to as many as 15.Portland, predictably, would fight back, especially with both teams struggling to put the ball in the basket. Jordan, who misses less than 30 percent of the time, missed three of his four shots.Blake Griffin, who dominated around and above the rim in Gmae 1, was grounded until a monster dunk in the fourth quarter.But the bench and the Clipper backcourt, Paul and Redick, were more than enough.Portland’s Damian Lillard scored 17 points, but was held to 6-of-22 shooting. The Clipper reserves outscored Portland’s 43-8. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
