Flamini flashback as Bayern await

first_img While the second half of the Frenchman’s stint in charge has been less fruitful than the first nine years, Arsenal’s fortunes finally look to be on the up. They are just a point behind Premier League leaders Chelsea with 12 matches remaining, and set up an FA Cup quarter-final with Everton after overcoming Liverpool 2-1 on Sunday with a performance that led Flamini to liken the current playing pool to the victorious side of 2005. “What I will say about this season is that I see a great commitment, I see everyone working very hard on the pitch and helping each other,” said the midfielder, who played for the club between 2004 and 2008, before returning last summer for a second spell. “I think it is what we had when I was here and we won the FA Cup because against Liverpool it was a difficult game, from the first to the last minute everyone worked very hard, even the players playing up front. “We asked them to defend and to help the team and they did it very well, which is very important for us. It was important to show some character on the pitch, some solidarity.” Not only are Arsenal fighting for success on the domestic front, but they also remain in the hunt for continental glory. Having navigated their way through a tough Champions League group, the north Londoners now face the unenviable task of overcoming reigning champions Bayern Munich in the last 16. The Bundesliga giants eliminated the Gunners at the same stage last term, but midfielder Flamini believes this season they can secure a shock and progress. Mathieu Flamini has likened the strength and spirit of the current Arsenal squad to the club’s last trophy-winning side of nearly nine years ago. Few would have foreseen the drought that has followed the FA Cup final penalty shoot-out victory over Manchester United in May 2005. It was the fourth FA Cup success of manager Arsene Wenger’s reign, complementing the three Premier League titles also collected following his arrival in 1996. “We know it won’t be an easy game because Bayern are a very strong team, but we are Arsenal, we have big ambitions,” the Frenchman said ahead of Wednesday’s first leg at the Emirates Stadium. “If we want to qualify, we have to get a good result against Bayern. “This year, Arsenal have a lot of ambition and are fighting for the league title. We have qualified in the FA Cup and we will do everything to qualify in the Champions League. “We know it will be a difficult game and now it is important to recover very well because we had so many games. Today, we will start thinking about Bayern.” Liverpool have no such European concerns and, with just four points separating them and leaders Chelsea, the FA Cup exit means they can focus on maintaining their late title bid. Brendan Rodgers and his players were left feeling hard done by after the defeat to Arsenal, having dominated large chunks of the match and been on the wrong end of decisions by referee Howard Webb that might have gone their way on another day. Steven Gerrard spoke of that underlying frustration after the 2-1 defeat, but is sure the result will not derail their season. “Obviously we’re going away really disappointed with the result but we can’t be disappointed with how we played,” the Liverpool and England skipper told the Liverpool Echo. “The least we deserved was a replay. Going out of the cup is a blow but the effort, the attitude and the character was excellent. “We created enough chances and really took the game to Arsenal in the second half, but big moments went against us. “There is nothing to be down about. Sometimes you just don’t get what you deserve from games and this was an example of that. “We have to move on, dust ourselves off and go again against Swansea next Sunday.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Making of a goalie

first_img Published on October 7, 2014 at 12:12 am Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Alex Bono always wanted to stop the ball. When he was 3 years old, he’d set up a net in his kitchen and pretend to be a hockey goalie. When he played Little League baseball, he only wanted to play catcher. And when he started playing soccer in first grade, there was only one position he would play. “Goalies kind of have to have a little intuition to them, it’s not something that can be taught,” said his mother, Kim Bono. “It has to be something you just sense. I just think he just had a great sense of the game. “He always enjoyed being that person to block the shot.” He is built to block that shot.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBono’s 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame, quick reflexes and feet make him the consummate keeper in size and skill. Layer in his level-headed mentality, experience and ability to communicate and Syracuse gets the nation’s top collegiate goalie, as far as numbers can see. He captains the defense, leading No. 9 Syracuse (9-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) to its best start in program history. Out of the 41 shots that have come his way this season, he’s saved 40. In the 10 games Syracuse has played, nine have been shutouts.“It’s not my job to do the classifying of the type of goalie that I am,” Bono said. “I’ll leave that up to the other people and I’ll just try and shape the classification that they put me in.”Bono jokes around with his teammates that he’d like to be a few inches taller. Being one of three 6-foot-3 players on the team, those complaints often fall on deaf ears. Bono said goalies can be anywhere between 5-foot-5 and 7 feet, and claims to be average in height. But Bono has more than height. His wingspan is 76 inches. His hands are 8 1/2 inches tall. When he was boy, he’d compare hand-sizes with his 6-foot-2 grandfather. When the two pressed their palms together, Bono’s were always bigger. “He had big feet, big hands, it was like, ‘Great, you’re going to grow into those and be tall,’” Kim Bono said. “… It’s kind of like when you buy a puppy and they have big paws, and you’re like ‘Oh my God, this is going to be a huge dog.’ He was always the big-boned boy.” But it was also his size that forced him to focus on improving his natural quickness. Following his senior year at C.W. Baker (New York) High School in Baldwinsville, he started training three days a week with Pete Rowley, a former SU and professional soccer player. It was with Rowley that Bono worked on his lateral movement and reaction time.Rowley would take away Bono’s other abilities to hone in on one. Sometimes that meant forcing him to make saves from his knees to mimic an in-game situation where he’d have to make multiple back-to-back stops. He’d make Bono make a save while turning around from facing the goal. The purpose was to heighten his neurological responses by taking away other senses, Rowley said.To improve his lateral movement, Rowley would put him through resistance training. He’d attach his legs to cords and force him to move side-to-side. Rowley tried to recreate him defending breakaways by having him jump hurdles before making saves.“Alex has all the innate abilities that you want in a goalkeeper,” Rowley said.Bono’s experience, which extends past starting all but one game since coming to SU, has aided his development. In high school he played for Empire United of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy system. He was a member of the United States under-18 National Soccer Team player pool. After his freshman and sophomore seasons at Syracuse, he spent his summers playing for Reading United of the Premier Development League. In the PDL he worked on his live-ball distribution to teammates. He worked on managing the game, in terms of figuring out when his passing should be quick and when it should be slower and more deliberate. “No matter what environment you’re in, it can become a little monotonous after a while, and that’s why I think the PDL is a valuable tool,” said Reading United head coach Brendan Burke. “…But it’s refreshing for a player or a coach to be in a different environment.” Then there’s Bono’s mental makeup, adding the final dimension to his game. He prides himself on his communication skills, saying that there’s a tree of communication with the rest of the players on the field. He’s the stump.Bono commands the Orange defense, telling his teammates when to step and when to hold their line. They, in turn, communicate with the players on offense.The best goalies are doing their job if the ball never comes their way, Bono said.“He’s got a very calm demeanor, and I think that’s very important at that position,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “You’re not looking for an anxious goalkeeper. You want to be able to turn around and ultimately know that everything’s OK.” This season, in part, has been a celebration of Bono’s prowess. He has an uncompromising defense in front of him and just one shot that’s gotten past him.Bono classifies himself as both orthodox and unorthodox. The orthodox part is his physical build that sets him up to dominate and the technical skills that ensure he does. The unorthodox part is when those technical skills don’t come in handy, when a play breaks down, he can still stop the ball. “As far as his height and his quickness,” Rowley said. “There are very few goalkeepers in the country that can offer both.” Commentslast_img read more
