Pochettino unhappy with ref treatment

first_img The former Argentina international was irked by referee Mark Clattenburg’s failure to award his side two penalties at Goodison Park and believes those decisions are just the tip of the iceberg. “I was angry about some of the refereeing decisions,” Pochettino said. “There was not one, but actually two clear penalties not given to us. “We have been suffering all season long. Many injustices have gone against us. It is easier to referee a Southampton side that are all young, friendly players. It is very easy to have decisions not go for us. It is a lot easier to have decisions to go against us. “We just want Southampton to be refereed with the same rigour as all other clubs are judged. “We want the same treatment as all other clubs. Nothing better, nothing worse – just the same. “We don’t want to be judged by the young, handsome players that we have. We don’t want to be judged in that sense. “We want to be judged in the same manner, being judged by the same rigour, in the same way that all other clubs are. We just want it to be fair, basically.” Pochettino was quick to reject the notion that his players need to show a nastier streak and laughed off the old saying ‘nice guys never win’. “I said that we seem to be good people, not that we are,” he said. “We can be a***holes as well.” There is certainly a dollop of attitude within the Southampton ranks, of which the eccentric Dani Osvaldo is a prime example. The Italy international arrived at St Mary’s in a club record deal in the summer with a history of alleged bad behaviour. Osvaldo has been relatively well behaved since moving from Roma, but has not featured for Saints since being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association. The forward was reprimanded following an altercation towards the end of the 1-1 draw at Newcastle, but Pochettino insists his absence is not discipline-related and revealed the club have appealed the charge. “Yes, the club appealed,” Pochettino said, speaking ahead of the New Year’s Day clash with Chelsea. “If we want to defend our player it is because we believe our player deserves to be defended. “We will see today the progress of Osvaldo. He picked up a knock against Newcastle and then (had) an illness, so hasn’t been able to train for the last 15 days.” While Osvaldo might be available, Saints will definitely be without Artur Boruc and Victor Wanyama for the match that once more pits Pochettino against an old friend. Jose Mourinho was amongst those to advise the former Espanyol boss to take the St Mary’s hotseat in January and won their only previous Premier League duel 3-1 at the start of the month. “Our mentality never changes, our mentality is always to win the next game,” Pochettino added. “That’s what we focus on regardless of who we play or where we are playing. “On Wednesday we are going to be facing Chelsea who are one of the best in England, one of the best in Europe probably, but our focus doesn’t change. “We want to be 100 per cent focused on attack, 100 per cent focused on defence and get the win.” Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino believes officials have treated his side unfairly this season due to their young, friendly image. Much has been made of Saints’ attractive free-flowing style and their focus on nurturing homegrown talent, with eight of their starting XI in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Everton eligible for England. Three of those players are teenagers from the club’s famed academy – an admirable philosophy but one manager Pochettino feels is costing his side. Press Associationlast_img read more

Notebook: Foul trouble, Fitzmaurice’s speed and Finklea-Guity’s socks

first_img Published on February 12, 2020 at 12:12 am Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @CraneAndrew Digna Strautmane fell for the shot fake and stumbled beyond the 3-point arc. As Louisville’s Dana Evans sidestepped to her left, her release was interrupted by Strautmane grazing her back in a desperate defensive recovery.  Once the referee’s whistle pierced the air during SU’s upset win over No. 5 Louisville on Sunday and the Cardinals went back to the foul line, Strautmane sauntered back to the bench with two fouls. Through Syracuse’s first 23 games, only 37 teams in the country have committed more fouls. Fouls have hindered SU’s already weak defense this season, and nine times this year the Orange have accumulated more than 20 violations in a single game. That mostly starts with guards not containing ball handlers up top, multiple players and coaches said, which eventually leaves forwards to suffer at the rim. “Because then the rotation messes up and then certain players have to play more minutes than they’re probably used to and it’s just all messed up,” center Amaya Finklea-Guity said. Behind a 2-3 zone featuring Miranda Drummond and Tiana Mangakahia up top, SU forced 17.9 turnovers per game last season, 1.4 more than this year. Their pressure — both man and zone — stifled opponents into rushed passes and forced decisions before reaching the half-court line. It was a dictated pace, one that Syracuse used to complement its offensive strategy predicated on shooting within the opening third of the shot clock. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut this year, that defensive impact has disappeared until Syracuse’s last two games. Part of that stems from SU’s 37.7% shooting percentage — the fewer baskets made, the fewer chances to set up the press. Guards Gabrielle Cooper and Kiara Lewis haven’t trapped opponents to the same extent as past combinations and press-breaking lanes open up. Roshan Fernandez | Asst. Digital EditorAgainst Louisville, Evans and fellow guard Jazmine Jones sprinted freely down the sideline early on and just one additional pass opened lanes that ended in layups or fouls. Breakdowns with the guards happen even when the Orange drop back into their half-court, 2-3 zone, Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi said. When opposing guards beat the top two defenders, forwards and weak-side defenders don’t have enough time to slide over into help position. Late arrivals often mean open layups or desperate fouls to prevent them.   “We’re not guarding the ball, so obviously the back cannot stop everything,” Djaldi-Tabdi said after a 30-point loss to Duke on Jan. 23. “We’re trying to, but it’s kind of hard trying to get to every ball and to every player.” Finklea-Guity’s shootaround socks It might be a pair of socks that revitalizes Finklea-Guity’s junior season. Before the year, high school and AAU coaches called the 2019-2020 season Finklea-Guity’s “breakout year” but instead she’s lost some minutes to Djaldi-Tabdi, the backup center. One reason for Finklea-Guity’s shrinking role is frequent misses on open looks down low. When Finklea-Guity drove to the basket and attempted a layup in the season opener against 5-foot-11 Erica Johnson, she clumsily missed the shot off the backboard. A nice touch on turnaround baby hooks and other post moves is overshadowed by downhill struggles off pick-and-rolls.  “I’m having to battle so much that once I go up I’m still in that battle mode,” Finklea-Guity said. “So I have to be like, ‘OK Amaya, calm down, make sure you actually finish the shot and see it through.”Roshan Fernandez | Asst. Digital EditorSo her mother, Paula, recommended a sock. It’s something small and easy to use in her South Campus apartment, and it can help hone a soft touch, finish and follow through. Finklea-Guity will toss the sock in the air, mimicking a layup’s footwork, catch it and then repeat the motion. After not scoring in double-digits for eight consecutive games, Finklea-Guity has now topped 10 points in two of her last four (13 and 12). To open last Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, she backed down Louisville’s Kylee Shook in the paint, and Emily Engstler swung a pass toward the left block. In one motion, Finklea-Guity caught the ball, drop-stepped and banked in Syracuse’s first points off the glass. “You’re going to have to give her another pair (of socks) because it’s working,” Hillsman said. Sprinter’s speed When Drummond graduated after last season, Syracuse not only lost its best 3-point shooter but also its fastest runner.  When the Orange did any type of conditioning, Drummond led the pack, junior backup guard Lauren Fitzmaurice said. Short distance? Drummond bolted in front. Long distance? She had the pace and long strides to outlast forwards and other guards. Last summer, Fitzmaurice’s goal was to become Syracuse’s new fastest runner. The walk-on guard wasn’t lined up for many minutes, if any, but still alternated between sprints and distance intervals daily in her hometown of Mazama, Washington.  “While I felt like I was getting out of shape sometimes because I wasn’t doing it as much, as soon as I got here I realized I was in really good shape,” Fitzmaurice said. Back in high school, Fitzmaurice broke a Liberty Bell (Washington) High School record for the high jump, and her father, Peter, ran cross-country and track at Stanford. The 100- and 300-meter hurdles, long jump and high jump were all events Fitzmaurice used to complement soccer and basketball. When she came back after the summer, Fitzmaurice and her Syracuse teammates lined up for “the loop” — toward the Women’s Building, east on Euclid, “a right turn up the big hill and then go down the mini hill,” and then back down toward Manley Fieldhouse. She jogged out in front from the start, and by the time Syracuse finished the two-mile route, Fitzmaurice was still in the lead.  “Lolo’s always…” guard Elemy Colome started, “She’s (always) just gone.”  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
