‘Authentic legend’ Aguero hits four as City storm 16 points clear

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola hailed Sergio Aguero as an “authentic legend” of Manchester City after his four second-half goals continued their emphatic march towards the Premier League title with a 5-1 thrashing of Leicester.Raheem Sterling had given City an early lead on Saturday but Leicester went into the break on level terms thanks to Jamie Vardy’s equaliser.However, Aguero took centre stage with a finishing masterclass to take his tally in City’s last seven home games to 14 goals as Guardiola’s side moved 16 points clear at the top of the table.“An authentic legend of this club,” said Guardiola of his prolific striker.“In the second half he scored four goals. Sergio is like this, he has a special talent in the box. He’s clinical… especially the third one and fourth one are amazing.”Leicester named City target Riyad Mahrez among the substitutes after he ended a self-imposed exile which saw him miss their last two matches.“He came and spoke to the lads in the dressing room. He put it to bed and we move on,” said Leicester boss Claude Puel.The Algeria international had seen a proposed deadline day transfer to the Etihad Stadium collapse after the Foxes rejected City’s offer.But it didn’t take long for the home side to show the abundance of talent they have going forward despite missing out on Mahrez and coping with a series of injuries to the likes of Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus.Kevin De Bruyne curled a cross into the penalty area and Sterling nipped in front of Marc Albrighton at the back post to guide the ball home for his 20th goal of the season.However, shortly before the half-hour mark City were rocked when Vardy showed great pace to get beyond City’s record signing Aymeric Laporte and his shot deflected into the bottom corner to complete the striker’s haul of scoring against all of the Premier League’s top six this season. – Aguero ends long-range wait –City threatened an immediate response as Kasper Schmeichel was forced to save at his near post from a fierce angled shot from De Bruyne while Aleksandar Dragovic’s timely sliding block denied Sterling.Leicester’s resistence didn’t last after the break as Aguero scored twice in five minutes to effectively end the game as a contest.A neat exchange between Sterling and De Bruyne on the right flank allowed the latter to tease a low cross to gift Aguero a tap-in.Moments later a weak clearance from Schmeichel was ruthlessly punished as a clinical City move culminated in De Bruyne’s third assist and a fierce angled shot from Aguero which the Leicester goalkeeper got a hand to but could not prevent going in.“They’re an excellent team, not many have got close to them this season, but the timing of their first and second goals were really tough for us,” added Puel.“We felt we could have stopped a couple of their goals today, because they were our fault.”With just under a third of the game left Mahrez came on for Fousseni Diabate, to cheers from both sets of supporters.The day belonged to Aguero, though, and he rounded off the game with two superb strikes.First he capitalised on another poor clearance from Schmeichel and lifted an audacious chip over the Denmark international.But he saved the best for last with a powerful effort from just outside the area which bounced in off the underside of the crossbar.“Maybe the last one,” said Aguero on which of the strikes was his favourite. “Because it’s a long time since I scored from outside the box.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Steel Sensations: 2013…The wasted season

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers 2013 first-round draft pick, Jarvis Jones, left, is presented with a team jersey by team president Arthur J. Rooney II, April 26, 2013 in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic)Another 8-8, not what the Steelers had hoped for and not what many pundits expected out of this veteran laced team in 2013 but it turns out that’s what the team achieved for the second consecutive season.After the 8-8 finish in 2012, the Steelers refused to say it was time to rebuild, they insisted that the team was only in transition. Having achieved no better record in 2013, will they say the same thing?Many folks look to the 6-2 finish down the stretch after the 0-4 and 2-6 start and say the arrow is pointed up on this team, that next year they’ll be back and ready to contend and challenge for ring number seven. They’ll mention the team hasn’t had a losing season since 2003.  While yes they finished strong in record, I have to say I don’t see the same arrow as these other folks.Sure, the team hasn’t’ had a losing season in 10 years but they haven’t had a winning one in the last two. If anyone is happy winning as much as losing, they belong somewhere else because that is simply not acceptable, not in this town where failing to win a title is viewed as a disappointment. How could one be happy with 8-8?Their 6-2 finish included two wins over the Browns, and wins over the Lions, Packers (without Aaron Rodgers), the Bills and the Bengals (who were promptly bounced out of the first round of the playoffs).Anything impressive there?The real lesson that must come out of this season is not that the team is close to getting back to championship caliber football but rather they may be further now than they have been in years. They wasted this season by not accepting this reality after 2012.They have very little depth on the roster and are short on overly talented stars at key positions. While they have an elite QB (Big Ben) and WR (Antonio Brown) and an extremely talented set of linebackers (Lawrence Timmons and Jason Worilds) they have nothing else that stands out.You could certainly make a case for Cam Heyward at defensive end as he progressed nicely in 2013 and LeVeon Bell will make strides moving forward but the list stops there. They need to trim the fat and bring in more talented youth as well as keep and develop the youth they currently have on this roster.It’s apparent it’s time to part ways with some of the all-time Steeler greats. While these players have had major roles in the title runs the Steelers put up from 2004-2011, it’s time to say goodbye. It may not be easy but if the Steelers learned nothing from 2012, they need to learn it this time around, they can’t waste 2014 too.last_img read more
