Evans heaps praise on Hernandez

first_img Press Association The Mexican had made only three brief substitute appearances for new manager David Moyes prior to Wednesday night’s victory over Liverpool. But in his first start, Hernandez hunted down the winning goal, wriggling free of Jose Enrique in classic striker’s fashion before touching home Wayne Rooney’s corner. He fronted up to the media on Tuesday, when it would have been far easier to send someone else to speak on his behalf. And he managed to stop a cloud of gloom descending on what is officially known as the Aon Training Complex but which fans and players continue to refer to as Carrington. “I have been on the training ground where the atmosphere has been worse than it was when we came in the day after the game,” said Evans. “We had no complaints at the weekend. “Everyone was honest in their assessment that we didn’t apply ourselves the way we should have. “It is hard for the fans, the players and the manager as well. We just had to move on from it quickly.” Ahead of the Baggies clash, Moyes may offer more information on the injury that ruled Tom Cleverley out of Wednesday night’s game given the Scot opted not to shed any light on it immediately after the Old Trafford outfit. It was a brilliant predatory effort. And Evans was not in the least bit surprised. “We see it every day in training,” he said. “You always have to be aware of him. He only takes a yard to get a goal. “That is the type of lad he is. Against Stoke a couple of years ago he scored a goal with the back of his head. “He loves scoring goals.” Moyes must decide how many of his fringe players will keep their places for Saturday’s Old Trafford encounter with West Brom given the pride they restored following Sunday’s disastrous derby day defeat at Manchester City on Sunday. To his credit, even in the teeth of the storm that raged following Sunday’s hammering, Moyes still kept doing the right things. Jonny Evans has hailed the goalscoring prowess of Manchester United team-mate Javier Hernandez.last_img read more

Don Cherry disapproves of Hurricanes’ celebrations: ‘These guys are jerks’

first_imgThe beef is ironic considering Cherry is known for his colorful attire yet would prefer to stifle one of the NHL’s youngest teams and their attempt to be unique.The Hurricanes (31-22-6) extended their win streak to three games with a shutout victory over the Stars on Saturday, solidifying their slot in the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Carolina is now 8-2-0 in its last 10 games.To much of Cherry’s dismay, the celebrations likely are just beginning. “These guys to me are jerks,” Cherry said. “And I’ll tell you one thing, they better not do this in the playoffs. This is a joke.”Cherry couldn’t help but call out the Viking Claps and Jose Bautista bat flips that have become quite popular with the organization in recent weeks.”Young men expressing themselves for joy of winning,” Cherry said. “You don’t do this thing in the National Hockey League. This is professional hockey. Are these guys jerks or something?”If you want to do it, do it before, but that is absolutely ridiculous.”Don Cherry absolutely rips the Carolina Hurricanes for their post-game celebrations 😬 pic.twitter.com/aj7ekDD4f9— Gino Hard (@Ginohard_) February 17, 2019But the Hurricanes don’t seem to care what Cherry — or anyone, for that matter — thinks.Our players love itOur fans love itNothing else matters pic.twitter.com/LxbFB7IrVB— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) February 16, 2019Wait, was he talking about us? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/9WWZxnGgO6— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) February 17, 2019The team also revised their Twitter bio, which hilariously now reads, “That bunch of jerks with the fun celebrations.” Don Cherry doesn’t approve of Carolina’s post-game win celebrations.While speaking on the “Coach’s Corner” segment during “Hockey Night in Canada” on Saturday, the commentator and former Bruins coach ripped the Hurricanes for the way they carried themselves after defeating the Oilers on Friday.last_img read more
