Patient Forde finally set for big stage

first_img Asked if he ever feared is time might not come, he said: “I have never stopped believing, I’ve always been quite positive. “I have a lot of belief in my own ability. I just kept doing the right things and I knew that hopefully that would be enough, and I’ve been lucky enough and managed to get my head in the door. “You prepare for these times and that what keeps you going – the thoughts of playing for your country and playing in big games like this, that’s what gets you through the hard times. “Even then, they are not even hard times because you are involved with your country, and that’s something that you want to do since you’re a young kid. I came into the game relatively late as well, so I relish it. It’s a very special thing for me.” Forde, of course, is not the only Irish goalkeeper to have found his way into the team blocked by Given. The 36-year-old Aston Villa player decided to call time on his Ireland career on his return from Poland having amassed a national record 125 caps during a 16-year-period, and the standards he set have made following in his footsteps a difficult task. Forde said: “You look at Shay and, in my eyes, he’s probably if not the, one of the best servants the country has had, so they are big boots to fill. He’s been an immense player for Ireland down through the years. I’m just hoping I can step in and do a similar job.” The Millwall goalkeeper will make his competitive debut for Ireland in their World Cup qualifier Sweden at the age of 33 after standing patiently in line behind Shay Given and then Keiren Westwood waiting for his chance. Given’s retirement from the international scene and Westwood’s lack of club football at Sunderland have seen Forde rise in Giovanni Trapattoni’s pecking order, and he will win his sixth senior cap in Stockholm having established himself as number one in the last two friendlies against Greece and Poland. Press Associationcenter_img David Forde will on Friday night reap the rewards of refusing to give up on his hopes of playing international football.last_img read more

Neville baffled by Welbeck sale

first_img “I can’t work it out,” Neville, who played 602 times for the Red Devils, told TalkSport. “After all the prices I’ve seen paid this summer, and obviously I’ve been working with him the last week, I’m thinking how is it just £16million? “There’s been right-backs and left-backs galore who have been bought for £15million this summer. How have they got him for £16million? “I can’t work it out to this day, it’s a strange one. It really does feel strange that it’s a centre-forward and actually it’s helped out a competitor, someone who will be vying for those third and fourth places with United this season. “I’m struggling to understand the logic behind the deal in two or three ways really.” Welbeck admitted after Monday’s match that he was relishing the chance of playing in a central role more regularly – having often played out wide during his United career – and is confident in his ability to find the back of the net. “It is well known I prefer to play through the middle so when I get my opportunity I just want to show what I can do,” he said. “Once I get into the box and get the opportunities I have got faith in my ability. “Listen, anyone can say what they want to say but I just know once I get the opportunity and a run of games up front I will do my best.” Former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville admits he cannot understand why the club sold Danny Welbeck for £16million to Barclays Premier League rivals Arsenal. Press Associationcenter_img After 15 years at Old Trafford, Welbeck joined the Gunners on transfer deadline day after falling behind Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and new arrival Radamel Falcao in the United striker pecking order. The 23-year-old striker scored both goals in England’s 2-0 win against Switzerland in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Basle on Monday and Three Lions coach Neville has questioned the logic in letting him go to a rival for a relatively small transfer fee. last_img read more

Snapchat develops into recruiting resource for coaches 1 year after NCAA recognition

first_imgPicture Jim Boeheim taking a selfie.Though it sounds ridiculous, it’s not farfetched. Boeheim himself doesn’t have a Snapchat, but many college coaches around the country do. Social media has become an integral part of recruiting in college basketball, and Snapchat is the latest fad.One year ago Wednesday, the NCAA officially recognized Snapchat as a form of electronic communication to reach out to recruits. The rule went into effect Aug. 1, 2014 and has become widespread in college basketball. Though it has not reached all programs, Snapchat is a means of recruiting that presents both pros and cons according to those who have tracked its emergence.“At the end of the day, I don’t think kids are making decisions based off who they Snapchat with,” said Evan Daniels, the director of basketball recruiting at Scout.com, “but I think it’s certainly something that can help them get to know the coaches.”Daniels said Snapchat can be a resource for coaches to show off their program and individual players to recruits. Maybe it’s a postgame celebration or a shot of practice — whatever gets kids excited about playing for a certain school. Recruiting is all about building relationships, Daniels said, and Snapchat has become a way to cultivate those bonds.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMemphis head coach Josh Pastner, for example, uses Snapchat as a recruiting tool, Daniels said. He said Pastner is known for relating to recruits, and Snapchat can be an effective way of doing so.Some Atlantic Coast Conference coaches enlist their assistant coaches to tackle Snapchat recruiting. Notre Dame’s Mike Brey, for instance, said his assistants are active on the app.“Thankfully I have a staff that helps me with my technological shortcomings,” Brey said with a chuckle. “They coach me up when I need to be better at stuff.”Though Brey considers himself inept, he said his daughter is active on Snapchat. Because she’s on Snapchat all the time, he knows other kids are going to be on it too. Nearly everyone he’s recruiting uses the app, so he believes it’s imperative for his staff to do so as well.Miami’s Jim Larranaga has never come across a recruit who has specifically wanted to Snapchat him. He communicates via phone and text, but many of his assistants use it as a tool.“High school kids are very tech-savvy, “ Larranaga said, “so we try to do as much as we can with technology.”Tyler Lydon, a power forward from New Hampshire who is committed to Syracuse, hasn’t connected with coaches on Snapchat personally. He said it would be “kind of weird” to communicate with coaches that way. Snapchat’s more for interacting with friends, he said.He is intrigued by the idea of a general account with team updates, but he isn’t a proponent of one-on-one Snapchat interaction with coaches.“If I were uncommitted and a coach were to Snapchat me and say what’s up, I’d probably be cool in the moment,” Lydon said. “But then you think about it and it’s kind of strange.”Lydon says he doesn’t post anything inappropriate on his Snapchat. He calls himself a laid-back kid and said that’s not his style.Though Lydon tries to stay away from posting questionable stories on the app, Alex Kline, the owner of The Recruit Scoop, sees a trend emerging where others in Lydon’s position aren’t as wise about what they post on Snapchat.Kline, who is a junior at Syracuse, said the first thing he thinks of when he hears the word Snapchat is making inappropriate posts without getting in trouble. Recruits can be smart on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Kline says, but they may act in negligent ways on Snapchat. Though Snapchat has perks in recruiting, Kline sees the trend in a more negative light.He considers Snapchat a background check to spy on people. Though kids don’t have to accept coaches’ requests, they often do. Snapchat is considered private, but it’s really public, Kline says. He believes many people create a brand on other social media but show their true selves on Snapchat.Though individual Snapchats can only last up to 10 seconds, Snapchat Stories stay up for a full day. Many of these big-time recruits have hundreds of Snapchat friends, including some coaches. If a player is drinking, smoking or acting inappropriately, for example, that coach may be less inclined to reach out.Kline hasn’t seen any specific examples, though he sees the trend continuing in the coming years.“People are trendsetters and people are followers, especially in basketball,” Kline said. “Once you’re wearing these Kobes and these Jordans, the next person’s going to do it. I think the same goes for social media.”Although Snapchat has yet to dominate college basketball recruiting, it appears to be gaining traction around the country. Coaches can interact with recruits, and vice versa, and both parties get a chance to learn about the other.But that might not always be a good thing.“Some of these guys are reckless,” Kline said. “Snapchat is the new thing that’s going to expose that.” Comments Published on February 10, 2015 at 12:22 am Contact Trevor: tbhass@syr.edu | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
