Soccer-Leicester need to adapt to grappling clampdown - Simpson
Yahoo News - 5 months
Defender Danny Simpson says Leicester City need to adapt quickly to a clampdown by referees on pushing and holding in the penalty area after Saturday's 4-1 defeat by Manchester United. Last season, centre backs Wes Morgan and Robert Huth provided Leicester with great defensive solidity and they conceded only 36 goals on their fairytale run to the title. Simpson said the new interpretation of the rules could be contributing to the club's defensive frailty.

Everton vs Newcastle United team line-ups are in. For David Moyes’ Everton, England international defender Leighton Baines is a welcomed returnee at left-back having missed the last couple of games with a groin injury.

Howe ready for battle in bid to keep hold of Burnley stars
Pendle Today - almost 5 years
CLARETS boss Eddie Howe anticipates a “big battle” to hold on to the club’s crown jewels over the summer. Burnley bring the curtain down on their season at home to Bristol City tomorrow (kick-off 12-30 p.m.), and while the players will be packing their suitcases to recharge their batteries, Howe’s work is only just getting started. He is eager to add to a promising young squad, but also knows Premier League predators are circling for his star names, with Jay Rodriguez and Kieran Trippier already being linked with big moves. Howe is realistic enough to accept that every player has his price, but he hopes to restrict the number of outgoings and avoid a similar scenario to last summer, when the turnover of players was far greater than he ideally wanted. He said: “I think it’s going to be our biggest battle to try to keep the squad together. “What we’d love to do is add players the other way and not lose anybody. “Realistically we know that’s going to be quite difficult. “We need to ...

Newcastle starlet Tavernier learning from skipper Coloccini
Shields Gazette - almost 5 years
YOUNG gun James Tavernier says he is learning from Newcastle United’s Captain Marvel Fabricio Coloccini as he bids to challenge for a first-team spot. Tavernier has been on the bench for United’s last two games against Swansea City and Bolton Wanderers after being recalled from a loan spell at MK Dons. The 20-year-old is highly rated by Toon boss Alan Pardew, who has farmed the player out for spells at Gateshead, Carlisle United, Sheffield Wednesday and the Dons in the last 12 months to build up his experience. Tavernier admits he has learned a lot from the loan moves, but is delighted to be back on Tyneside, training alongside Argentinian international Coloccini each day. And he hopes the tips he’s picked up from the talented centre-half will stand him in good stead as he looks to develop as a player. “Throughout the season I have learned off loads of different players,” the Bradford-born player said. “Everybody has got their own ability of teaching you something new.

Draw feels like a win – Newcastle United’s Danny Simpson
Sunderland Echo - almost 5 years
<a class="fplink fp-57835" href="/Danny+Simpson+1">Danny Simpson</a> says the timing of Newcastle’s equaliser against Sunderland made the derby draw feel like a victory, writes GARY FOSTER. The full-back was delighted that the Tynesiders came from behind to claim a point, and while the game ended with honours even, Simpson says it’s the hosts who will be on a high after the result. “Last season, we left their place, when they scored in the last minute, and it hurt as it felt like we lost,” he said. “This time, we scored in the last minute, and it feels like a win. “It hurts when you concede in the last minute, and it will hurt them.” The draw at the Sports Direct Arena leaves the Magpies in the ascendancy when it comes to North East bragging rights, with Simpson saying: “We’ve taken four points from them in the last two seasons, and we’re unbeaten in the last five games against them.” The former Manchester United man, who spent a loan spell on Wearside in 2006/07, said: “It’s alw ...
