LONDON - Mauricio Pochettino got the better of his Southampt

LONDON - Mauricio Pochettino got the better of his Southampton successor Ronald Koeman as Tottenham ended its four-match wait for a Premier League win with a 1-0 victory on Sunday. Jeff Demps Florida Jersey .Christian Eriksen scored with a 20-yard strike in the 40th minute to deny Koemans side a seventh straight win in all competitions.All eyes were on Pochettino at White Hart Lane, where he was taking on his former club for the first time since ending a successful 18-month stint at St Marys to lead Spurs.The win was a timely shot in the arm for Tottenham ahead of the international break, having failed to win its last four top-flight matches and lost its previous two home league games.Unlike recent weeks, there was no sign of a Europa League hangover as Jan Vertonghen had an early header cleared off the line, before Erik Lamela saw a shot pushed on to the post and Eriksen impressively struck from distance.Nacer Chadli hit the post as he attempted to double Spurs advantage before the break, from which Tottenham returned strongly and kept the visitors at bay.Sadio Manes contender for miss of the season in the closing stages was Saints best chance as the hosts held out for a win which will have been particularly sweet for Pochettino and his staff.Despite having last season led the south coast side to its best-ever Premier League campaign, the sold-out travelling fans showered him with abuse from the outset in north London.Pochettino may have been under pressure but so too was the Southampton backline, with Ryan Bertrand clearing Vertonghens header off the line in the fourth minute.However, Saints soon settled and had a fine chance of their own, with only a last-ditch Kyle Naughton block preventing Mane turning in Graziano Pelles cross.Manes cutback just evaded Steven Davis as Southampton continued to up the ante, with Spurs target Morgan Schneiderlin having a close-range effort blocked.Lamela galloped forward and unleashed a 25-yard strike that Fraser Forster did brilliantly to tip on to the post, although the England goalkeeper was not so convincing when denying Eriksen soon after, watching helplessly as the ball crept wide after wriggling out of his grasp.Naughton was forced off with a nasty-looking injury in between those opportunities.Attacking down the left, Emmanuel Adebayor squared the ball to Chadli, who flicked to Eriksen and the Danish playmaker unleashed a fizzing strike from the edge of the box just out of Forsters reach.Spurs continued on top when play resumed for the second half, although it looked like the match would be turned on its head seven minutes after the restart.Latching on to a through ball, Mane was barged off the ball by last-man Younes Kaboul. The Spurs skipper feared the worse when Mike Jones harshly called a foul, yet the referee only gave a yellow card. Christian Laettner Duke Jersey . "We were left with the overall impression that the team wasnt trending toward being able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news conference at the clubs arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was time to make those changes. Jeremy Johnson Auburn Jersey .

Four years after winning gold on home ice in Vancouver, the Canadians will get a chance to make it two in a row Sunday against Sweden after beating the United States 1-0 in the Olympic semifinals Friday at Bolshoy Ice Dome.COLLINGWOOD, ONT. a€“ The Toronto Maple Leafs started this weeks team-bonding trip in cottage country by taking shots at each other, literally. The team took part in a paintball match on Tuesday, which even included head coach Randy Carlyle. And the players did not hesitate to take shots at the man, who controls their ice time. Ia€?d be taking it for sure, said centre Nazem Kadri, when asked what hed do if given a free shot at Carlyle. But I guess, lucky for him, he was on my team. Shoot him? said Joffrey Lupul, who also played for Carlyle in Anaheim. Ia€?ve known him for 10 years. For sure, you get the chance to shoot him you gotta shoot him. Carlyle doesnt blame his players. When youa€?re in that environment, in a small area, I dona€?t really think you have a choice: ita€?s either be shot or shoot at, he said in a matter-of-fact tone. Quite a few of the staff were involved, said captain Dion Phaneuf, so as soon as you get out there, they got camouflage on as well so theya€?re fair game. The Leafs trip will run through Thursday and includes the 29 players remaining in camp. On Wednesday, the group did some CrossFit training in the morning and played a round of golf in the afternoon. But whether all this together time will translate to better play on the ice remains open to debate. Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter recently told reporters that he doesna€?t think such ventures yield results. Ia€?m not into that, what you hear about: go climbing ropes and going to a fort somewhere, Sutter, who guided L.A. to two Stanley Cup titles in the three seasons, told reporters. You do most of your bonding in May and June, quite honest. If youve got to go somewhere to learn about your personality, you probably have a disorrder, he said. Dalvin Cook Florida State Jersey. Carlyle, who led the Anaheim Ducks to a championship in 2007, isna€?t 100 per cent sure that team bonding leads to wins, but he does know one thing. Successful teams usually have united teams, he said. So, is it having success that unites the group or is it the uniting of the group that gives you success? Ita€?s the chicken-before-the-egg theory. But we think that ita€?s imperative that your players have the opportunity to get to know one another both at the rink and away from the rink. Lupul does believe it is important that players relate to each other on a personal level. Well, ita€?s part of it for sure, the Leafs alternate captain explained. Everyone wants to care about their teammates and its good to learn a little bit about a guys background and their family and that stuff you dona€?t get typically coming to the rink and doing your job. Regardless of whether the trip helps the club in the standings or not it is clear that the Leafs are enjoying themselves. The paintball post-mort certainly provided lots of potshots. Dion was active, said Lupul with a grin when asked for his list of standout performers. I dona€?t know if he was good or bad, but he was certainly active and Phil somehow bought a different gun than everyone else so he had a more high-powered semi-automatic weapon whereas we just had regular ones. Dions pretty good, said Kadri. Apparently he plays a fair bit in the summertime. I think Phil was hiding behind a couple guys so I have to say he may have been the worse. Lots of guys stood out, said Phaneuf. I wouldna€?t even want to guess the amount of rounds we went through. There was lots of paint that was used. We werena€?t sparing paint balls, thata€?s for sure.
