Success breeds interest – Samaras

Posted On Sep 21 2020 by

first_img For his part, Samaras insists he has no intention of leaving Glasgow any time soon. The 28-year-old arrived at Parkhead on loan from Manchester City in January 2008, before signing a permanent deal the following summer and is now the longest-serving player at the club aside from skipper Scott Brown. While speculation surrounds the future of some Hoops players such as Gary Hooper, Victor Wanyama and Fraser Forster, Samaras – voted player of the year by the club’s supporters recently – is “fully committed” to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions. He will sit down and discuss an extension to his current deal which finishes next year, at a time to suit both parties. He said: “I have one more year of my contract and hopefully I will be here next season. Six years is a lot but it has gone so fast and when you feel good at the club, people are looking after you and you feel you are part of a big family, I cannot see a reason to leave. “But it is too soon to speak about a contract. When they are ready and I am ready then we will have a chat. But we have plenty of time, don’t worry.” Georgios Samaras is not surprised that Celtic boss Neil Lennon has been linked with a move to Everton. The race for the managerial hot-seat at Goodison Park is under way after it was confirmed that David Moyes will take over from soon-to-be-retired Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United on July 1. “I haven’t heard anything but all I can say is that when you are playing at a high level like the Champions League and doing well then for sure people will come and watch the players or the manager or whoever is part of the team,” said the Greece international. “That is normal. When you are doing well, people will come and watch you. But I don’t know what he is thinking or what he wants to do.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Women’s hockey: Badger freshmen grow accustomed to Wisconsin-Minnesota rivalry

Posted On Sep 16 2020 by

first_imgLife as a freshman is never easy.There are roommate issues, homesickness, eating what passes as food at the cafeteria and, of course, joining a team full of award winning players.Maybe not every University of Wisconsin student can relate to that last part, but the three freshmen on the UW women’s hockey team certainly can. They came into their freshman year knowing they were about to join one of the most prestigious female hockey teams in the country.Thankfully, Sophia Shaver, Sam Cogan and Mikaela Gardner had not only each other, but also a team full of girls waiting to help them no matter what. From schoolwork and campus life to tips to help them get their game up to college level, the Wisconsin freshmen had an army of people behind them.Shaver, Cogan and Gardner started their freshman season off with team bonding and trying to find their places on the Wisconsin roster, which includes national team members, future Olympians and a record-breaking goalie. So the team bonded in the best way possible: playing several highly-competitive rounds of laser tag.Gardner, the only defenseman in this year’s class, certainly had her share of things to be intimidated about. Not only was she coming on to one of the greatest defensive cores in the WCHA, but she was also coming in alone with no one to share her nerves. But her fears soon vanished, and she became more comfortable playing alongside the Badger defense.“In the beginning it was intimidating, being the only freshman,” Gardner said. “[Shaver and Cogan] at least had each other. It was definitely really cool and amazing, and they’ve helped me with things, both on and off the ice. But I think that I’ve gotten a lot better just from taking little tips from them, and just kind of watching them in practice or in a game.”As their season progressed, the Badger class of 2019 found their footing and became more comfortable playing alongside their new teammates. They also found their moments to shine, with all three players scoring their first goals within the first two weeks of the season.Of course, the new Badgers had also yet to experience their first Border Battle game against the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers.Women’s hockey: Johnson looks ahead as Badgers eye redemption in Frozen FourThe Wisconsin women’s hockey team is looking ahead to the matchup with the Minnesota Golden Gophers this week after ending Read…Considering Cogan is from Ottawa, Ontario, and Gardner is from Illinois, Shaver was the only one that really had any idea how intense the rivalry is between the two institutions.Cogan admitted that while she was nervous the first time she met the Gophers on the ice, the nerves were eventually worth it.“I had no idea how crazy [the Minnesota-Wisconsin rivalry] was and how intense it can be,” Cogan said. “Not only before the game, but during the game, your heart is racing and you’re sweating. But it’s fun. Going in there, still, I get really nervous, but it’s a good nervous.”Cogan went on to score the first goal in the series, which would end with a Wisconsin sweep of the Gophers. A Badger team had not accomplished that feat since 2009.Women’s hockey: No. 2 Wisconsin opens NCAA Tournament against MercyhurstThe No. 2 ranked University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team will fight for the chance to go to the NCAA Frozen Read…The second half of the season saw changes for both Cogan and Shaver, who were placed on new lines. Cogan moved onto a rotation with Emily Clark and Annie Pankowski, and Shaver found herself beside Erika Sowchuk and Baylee Wellhausen.Shaver, who had watched Badger hockey and admired Hilary Knight, was always looking for the chance to make her mark on the program. She wanted someday to see herself on the same wall in the LaBahn Arena as her idol.“I can’t wait to contribute to [the Badger program],” Shaver said. “With how great this program has been, I can’t wait to have my own part in it and grow with the program.”Now, as they enter their final weekend of the season, all three freshmen find themselves preparing for the NCAA Frozen Four tournament. While they may be newcomers to the game, their team has a bitter history, one that for the past two years has ended in losses to Minnesota.Seeing how hard her team has worked to change the outcome of past Frozen Four games pushed Shaver to do well this post-season. Shaver watched last year’s semi-final game, and doesn’t want the same thing to happen this year.“Coming from them,” Shaver said, “I can see how much they want this, so it makes me want it that much as well. I was at that game, watching. Seeing that made me not want it to happen to us this year.”Whether they win or lose, one thing is certain: the Badger class of 2019 has a first season under their belts that most players can only dream of.last_img read more
