But I started to join the pros. Arsenal is a great club, but I needed playing time. I had to play, and I preferred to leave. “It was difficult to stay at Arsenal in the sense that there were big names and a new coach (Unai Emery). I spoke with Per Mertesacker who made me a little hesitant.”He really wanted me to stay. But I felt that the best solution was to leave. At that time I did not yet have contact with Sion, but with other clubs. I was contacted by Sion fifteen days after my decision to leave. I had a preference to return to France but despite some contacts it is Sion who had my preference.” last_img read more

Slightly overshadowed by a few disappointing chants, which could be clearly heard on the pitch, but we showed a great response and ultimately we let the football do the talking.”I think the protocol was effective, and there was less chanting after that. We made a decision at half-time to come out and play the game, which we thought was the right thing to do.” last_img read more

Looking into the future of Ohio State mens basketball

Posted on by

The Ohio State men’s basketball team’s season came to a disappointing end Friday with a 62-60 loss to No. 4-seeded Kentucky. With no more Buckeye basketball to be played this season, looking to the future is the only option. Though the season just concluded, much can already be determined about next year’s squad. The team will return two starters, freshman forward Jared Sullinger and junior guard William Buford, assuming they hold true to their stated intentions not to enter the NBA Draft. The Buckeyes also will welcome back freshman point guard Aaron Craft, who was fifth on the team in minutes played, and freshman forward Deshaun Thomas. Beyond those four seemingly known commodities, the future of OSU basketball becomes less clear. The star Recently named first-team All-American, Sullinger is arguably the most talented player the Buckeyes will have next season. The 6-foot-9 post player led the team in points and rebounds last season with 17.2 and 10.1 per game, respectively. “He’s extremely productive. … He commands a lot of respect,” coach Thad Matta said. “He’s a great player.” The forward also took home Freshman of the Year honors and remains a finalist for the Naismith Award, given to the nation’s best player. With a year of experience under his belt, Sullinger is expected to excel futher during his sophomore campaign. The OSU youngster is likely to be the nation’s front-runner for the Naismith Award next season, regardless of whether he brings home the hardware this year. Sullinger is making sure to put in the work during the offseason. Following his team’s final loss of the season, Sullinger said, “I know I am going to be back in the gym as soon as we get back.” The veteran Although Sullinger likely will be the Buckeye who receives the most attention, Buford will be the one with the most experience. As a senior, Buford will be the only player on the OSU roster who will start the season with more than one year of program experience. He has three full years in the system. Besides leadership, Buford brings a shooter’s touch to the 2011–12 squad. “Will’s an awesome guy,” Craft said. “He’s definitely willing to take his shots, and he (has) knocked them down.” Buford shot 44.2 percent from 3-point range this past season, good for the third-best 3-point shooting season in school history. The guard was also second in scoring on the team, with 14.4 points per game. Buford sits at 22nd in school history in points scored, with 1,424. If he maintains this past season’s scoring pace next season, he will finish fourth. The engine With Sullinger expected to score in the post and Buford expected to score from the outside, Craft will be expected to push the defense and facilitate the offense. Throughout the season, the freshman point guard was praised for his on-ball defensive abilities. Craft, who averaged a team-high two steals a game, embraces the role of lockdown defender. “I’ve always just enjoyed doing it, even in AAU. I always had to guard … the team’s best player,” he said. “It’s something I’ve grown into.” With fifth-year senior forward David Lighty, whom Matta often has called the best defender in college basketball, departing from the program, Craft will be able to take over the role of the team’s best defender. Besides his defense, Craft will be required to set up the offense from his position. The freshman was fourth in the Big Ten in assists last season, with 4.8 per game. “I think as you really get to know Aaron, you get to spend time with him, you watch him develop. It’s amazing,” Matta said. “He’s been so steady throughout the course of the year.” Craft played his best basketball late in the season, logging an OSU-record 15 assists against George Mason in the NCAA Tournament. The tank Thomas came off the bench last season to average 7.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in just 14 minutes per game for the Buckeyes. With the departure of wing players Lighty and Jon Diebler, Thomas likely will be a starter next season. Despite his single-digit scoring average, Thomas scored double figures 10 times during the season and notched 20 or more points on three occasions. “I think we’ve seen, throughout the course, that Deshaun can score in bunches,” Matta said. “He’s a very talented player, and he really has a knack … for finding open areas, finding the seams.” Besides providing instant offense, Thomas’ 62 offensive rebounds were good for second on the team. With added minutes next season, expect those numbers to rise. The unknown Craft and Thomas will likely join Sullinger and Buford in the starting lineup next year. But determining who will fill that fifth spot, and how Matta will use his bench, will be more difficult to determine. The remaining player with any significant playing time from this past season is freshman guard Jordan Sibert, who appeared in 25 games and averaged 8.3 minutes a game. Starting Sibert would create a relatively small starting five. Matta has shown a tendency to start multiple post players in the past. This past season, the coach started the 6-foot-9 Sullinger and 6-foot-8 senior center Dallas Lauderdale. If he wants to go big again, he seems to have two options: Boston College transfer forward Evan Ravenel and incoming freshman center Amir Williams. Ravenel averaged just 3.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes off the bench when he played for Boston College. Despite the underwhelming numbers, the forward does have a year in the program on his side. Williams, on the other hand, could become the newest freshman post player to start at OSU. The 6-foot-9 center is the nation’s No. 7 center and No. 73 overall recruit, according to Rivals.com. Matta, who has often used a short bench, will need to decide how he wants to use the remaining talented players. Freshman guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. received playing time in blowout victories, and freshman forward J.D. Weatherspoon did the same before being ruled academically ineligible for winter quarter. Four recruits, including No. 17-ranked point guard and No. 62 overall recruit Shannon Scott, will join Williams in vying for playing time as freshmen. Regardless of how Matta pieces together the puzzle that is next year’s season, the established pieces and young talent are there. Whichever grouping of players the coach relies on will strive to accomplish the goal that the 2010–11 team could not: a national championship. read more

Face Up Vermont Life

Posted on by

first_imgMAGSTATSIssue: Autumn 2013Frequency: Quarterly Launched: 1946Circ: 45,000Editor: Mary Hegarty Nowlan Art Director: Susan McClellanPublishing Company: State of Vermont Nuance is a word you’d likely leave out of a conversation about Vermont’s fall foliage. However, that is exactly what should come to mind when looking at Vermont Life’s autumn issue. The cover captures the bold, contrasting colors you’d expect to see in a Vermont autumn, but it’s an illuminated porch light cutting through morning fog that delivers a subtle, yet relevant subtext that connects the cover story to the image. Photographer Gary Hall captures landscapes all over the state, and is a frequent contributor to Vermont Life. Art director Susan McClellan says she knew right away that Hall’s image was perfect for the issue.“It fits both bills,” says McClellan. “It’s a beautiful, inviting and colorful image, and it works with the coverline about young people leaving the state—in that if you’re a parent you leave the light on hoping your kids will come home soon.”Editor Mary Hegarty Nowlan agrees that the evocative image was a fitting complement to a bold cover story. “From an editorial point-of-view, we knew it was going to be a big story, a controversial story,” she says. “We didn’t want to make it depressing because the idea of leaving is not a popular thing to put on a cover. But this image really touched all of us.”Nowlan and McClellan suggest that Vermont Life is becoming more contemporary and looking to speak to a younger audience. During the past six years there have been incremental changes made to the logo, typography and an addition of the black-box border. The magazine still aims to offer beautiful imagery, but Nowlan says readers should expect more packages like this one. DESIGNER’S COMMENTS“This cover is a collection of several elements that are not in sync. The main cover line has nothing to do with the warm, scenic cover image and the black border traps the image and makes this issue look like a memorial tribute cover.Since the logo is about the same size as the main coverline, I would have moved the coverline further away from logo and avoided using so many type sizes.Alternatively, if their approach is to use the image more so as branding for a Vermont lifestyle, take all of the cover lines and run them discreetly on the bottom to allow the image to own the page.A better choice of color for the logo could have also allowed the team to avoid using an old trick like the soft shadow.“Josh Klenert, Vice President, Design & UX, The Huffington Post,Huffington magazine“Let’s start with a bigger and bolder flag. Not necessarily a sweeping change of typography, but rather more careful use of kerning and set at a larger size. I’d also strongly recommend capitalizing the V and the L. Just by virtue of capitalizing those words the book would project more authority. I like the dreamy autumn image and I understand why it was chosen. That said, given the sell line “Are Young People Leaving?” I think VL is missing an opportunity to craft a visual that’s a bit brasher, more youthfully exuberant. An energetic, present—hopefully iconic—image of a young adult would accomplish connectivity to the main draw, “Youth Flight.” Finally, a glance backwards shows that VL covers have traditionally taken more of a coffee table book approach. However, these days it seems VL is tackling some rather heady subject matter. What I find at odds though, is the notion of placing these kinds of coverlines regarding modern day concerns on a visual conceit that harkens back to dreamy bygone days.”Marshall McKinney, Art Director, Garden & GunHave a unique “cover” story?
