Di Canio excited by Chelsea opener

first_imgControversial new Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio is ready to take his place in the spotlight when he makes his first Barclays Premier League appearance in the dugout in Sunday’s match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Di Canio, who succeeded Martin O’Neill after Sunderland’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester United, has been at the centre of a media storm this week surrounding his political views. The Italian has moved to distance himself from talk of anything other than Sunderland’s top-flight survival and is focussing on the thrill of leading his new side into battle against Chelsea. Sunderland are only one point clear of the relegation zone with seven games remaining. However, Di Canio is relishing the challenge, starting this weekend at Chelsea, where he scored a spectacular long-range volley when playing for West Ham in 2006. “As a manager it is my first time at the top, I mean the very top level,” Di Canio told safc.com. “(We are) away from home against Chelsea, where obviously I have good memories and scored when I was a footballer. But I’m not a footballer now, I’m a manager and now I hope my players will score there and give us some points. “It’s fantastic. The players will be motivated on their own; they live to play on the big stage. Obviously we are going to give them extra motivation to try to get a very good result.” Di Canio’s only other spell in management was at Swindon, who he led to promotion from npower League Two after his first season in charge, before resigning in February following off-the-pitch problems and financial difficulties at the club. The 44-year-old is now keen to make an immediate impact in the Premier League. He added: “Chelsea at Stamford Bridge – what can you say? I can’t wait for it and I expect the same desire and determination from my players to make sure they do a good job. “To go to Stamford Bridge and make a big impact – we always have to remember that the main protagonists are the players, but with my help and my staff’s help we can go there and get a result. It’s exciting. We live for it. Life is short and if you have an exciting job, you’re lucky. “I’m not worried about the big stage. We will do everything straight away to try and get a big result at Chelsea and then in the other games. This is a fantastic achievement for me and my staff and it is a consequence of what we have done in the past.” Di Canio has several injury worries ahead of the match and only has a threadbare squad to choose from. Midfielder David Vaughan (groin) and defender Carlos Cuellar (ankle) are both doubts while captain Lee Cattermole (knee surgery) and striker Steven Fletcher (ankle ligaments) will both miss the rest of the season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

A good start goes bad quickly for Felix Pena in Angels’ loss

first_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros “The pitches weren’t quite exactly where he wanted them to be, and those guys got too much barrel on them,” Scioscia said.The game spoiled a good streak for Peña, who is trying to establish a role for himself for 2019.After being a reliever for the past few years, the Angels moved him into the rotation and he’s flourished. He’s switched from a four-seam fastball to a two-seamer, used his changeup more and at times flashed a dominant slider. Coming into the game, hitters had swung and missed at his slider 49.7 percent of the time, making it the 11th toughest slider to hit in the majors.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Peña fell behind Nick Martini, 2-and-0, and then gave up a single.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandOAKLAND — Felix Peña’s performance on Wednesday night was Exhibit A about how difficult it is to pitch in the big leagues.For three innings, Peña was as good as could be, but in the fourth inning he gave up six runs, which was more than enough to send the Angels on their way to a 10-0 loss to the Oakland A’s.Peña retired the first nine Oakland hitters on 25 pitches, with barely even a ball hit hard. At that point, he looked like the guy who had a 2.76 ERA in his previous eight starts.“In the first three innings he was doing a lot of the same stuff he’s been doing,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “I thought he had a nice mix of pitches. In the fourth, he had trouble commanding counts and putting guys away and those guys, when they got a fastball to hit, hit it hard.” One night’s poor results notwithstanding, he’s still opened eyes with his 16 starts. He still has a 4.01 ERA in those games. He gave up 13 runs in two of his 83 innings as a starter.Peña gave up seven runs in the first inning against the Seattle Mariners on July 29, and he bounced back and pitched well after that, which he took as encouragement after this outing.“It was just a bad outing,” Peña said through an interpreter. “I put it behind me. The idea is to keep working hard and keep making progress.”After Peña came out, another pitcher trying to get himself onto the 2019 depth chart had a rough inning.Parker Bridwell gave up a three-run homer to Piscotty. Bridwell has now allowed 22 earned runs in 8-2/3 innings in his career against the A’s, while posting a 3.07 ERA in 120-1/3 innings against everyone else.
