World Cup inspired Sinclair move

first_img Winger Sinclair joined the Baggies last week on a season-long loan to escape his miserable spell at Manchester City. Following a £6.2million move from Swansea last summer, Sinclair made just two starts and nine substitute appearances in the Premier League under former manager Roberto Mancini. Scott Sinclair has admitted to having an eye on a trip to Brazil next summer as one of the reasons behind his move to West Brom. In signing for Albion, Sinclair is poised to finally get the regular game time he craves, starting with Sunday’s clash at The Hawthorns against former club Swansea. And with the World Cup looming, former under-21 international Sinclair has conceded he would love to be in Roy Hodgson’s England squad providing he can again make an impact on the domestic front. “It was another thing I thought of,” said Sinclair when asked as to whether he had considered his England future in joining West Brom. “The main thing is I was so frustrated at not playing and I just wanted to get out and play week in and week out and be happy. “The World Cup is coming up and the manager has been putting the likes of (Andros) Townsend and (Ross) Barkley in the team. “If they’re getting a chance, then I don’t see why I can’t if I’m playing well.” Sinclair is also eager for a spell in the limelight for all the right reasons after hitting the headlines for all the wrong ones during his time at City with his off-field exploits. Sinclair found himself in the news pages and gossip magazines whilst dating – and then recently splitting from – former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan. It now appears Sinclair is eager for the quiet life at Albion as he added: “I want a house out of the way, not in the centre. I can then concentrate on my football, going home and being sort of humble.” Not that Sinclair believes his personal life interfered with his football during his time at City. “Someone’s personal life has nothing to do with the club. What people do in their personal life is up to them,” added Sinclair. “I conducted myself in a very good way when I was there. I didn’t do anything wrong off the field. “It’s just I had limited chances, and maybe because I wasn’t playing then my personal life received more attention. “When you’re not playing then people have things to say and write about you, which does get frustrating. “But once I’m back playing and happy then I won’t be too fussed what people write about my personal life.” After playing the 90 minutes of Albion’s 3-0 Capital One Cup victory over Newport on Tuesday it is almost certain Sinclair will start against the Swans. Head coach Steve Clarke believes after back-to-back league defeats to start the season and leave Swansea bottom of the table, they will be a dangerous proposition. “They’re a very good team that has spent over £20million in the transfer market this summer,” said Clarke. “They obviously need a bigger squad because they were good enough to win the Capital One Cup, which was great for them, and now they have the bonus of being in Europe. “They have a certain way of playing, they’re attractive, they’re a difficult team to play against. “They’ve had a tough start, two difficult teams (Manchester United and Tottenham), and hopefully we can make it three.” Nicolas Anelka returns after being away for a week on compassionate leave, replacing Matej Vydra who is sidelined with a hamstring problem. With goalkeeper Ben Foster out for 12 weeks with a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot, Boaz Myhill should start despite a wrist injury. Press Associationlast_img read more

Men’s Soccer: Badgers tally season-high four goals in defeat of Rutgers

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team (6-4-2, 3-1 Big Ten) beat fellow Big Ten opponent Rutgers (2-8-1, 1-4 Big Ten) 4–2 Sunday, extending their unbeaten streak to five games.The slippery conditions at the McClimon Complex didn’t slow down the players on offense — both teams combined for 26 shots (14 on goal) and six goals during the match.The four goals scored by Wisconsin are the most they have managed in any match this season.In a post-match conversation with UW athletics, Wisconsin head coach John Trask commended his team for their scoring output and ability to play to the dismal conditions.Women’s hockey: Badgers sweep Mercyhurst to continue impressive start to seasonAfter last weekend’s sweep of the Lindenwood Lions at home, the Badgers (4-0-0) looked to continue their success on the Read…“On a day like today, obviously conditions play a part. Sometimes it’s just about getting the ball down the field and we did that,” Trask said. “We knew it was going to be an absolute battle, but the guys listened to the message and it paid off.”The scoring began early as junior Robin Olofsson scored his first goal for the Badgers this season with a fifth-minute strike.The goals would continue to flow for Wisconsin as freshman Noah Melick, in his first start for the Badgers, scored his first goal in Wisconsin colors in the 28th minute. Melick wasn’t done either, as he would add to his tally later in the match with a second goal shortly after halftime.Freshman and the Badgers’ leading goal-scorer Andrew Akindele also joined the onslaught, scoring shortly after Melick’s second. That was Akindele’s third goal of the season, which accompanies his three assists — also a team high.Volleyball: Badgers fall in five sets to underdog HawkeyesThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team fell to the Iowa Hawkeyes 2–3 in Iowa City for their fourth away match Read…Despite the Badgers’ dominance, Rutgers wouldn’t go down easily. The Scarlet Knight’s Jordan Hall scored a pair, the second of which came in the 84th minute, shaving the Badger lead to just two and boosting his season tally to an impressive nine goals.Post-match, Trask also spoke highly of the performance from Wisconsin captain Noah Leibold.“He is one of the best players we have,” Trask said. “I don’t talk about him often, but I wouldn’t trade him for anyone in the conference.”The Badgers now head to an out-of-conference matchup against Green Bay (5-4-2, 2-2-1 Horizon).The Green Bay Phoenix began the season hot, winning five of their first seven matches but have struggled recently — having only been able to secure one victory in their past six outings.The Badgers will be looking to keep Green Bay out of the win column and continue their good run of form — Wisconsin has not lost the last five matches where the two sides have meet.The match will be broadcast on BTN Plus and kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m Wednesday from the McClimon Complex.last_img read more
