Immobile sa come si fa

A Juergen Klopp devono essere fischiate le orecchie.
Giampiero Ventura, l'allenatore che al Torino ha fatto di Immobile il capocannoniere della scorsa Serie A, era andato giù duro.
Senza citare direttamente Simeone, Inzaghi e, appunto, Klopp, Ventura aveva difeso i suoi ex ragazzi Cerci e Immobile.
Al primo aveva imputato la scelta sbagliata in estate, l'Atletico Madrid anziché una squadra che gioca la palla come il Barcellona; col secondo invece era stato più comprensivo.
Ci sono giocatori che sanno fare tutto, e quelli sono i grandissimi; altri che sanno fare bene tante cose e altri ancora che magari ne sanno fare solo una ma benissimo.
Immobile, evidentemente, rientra nell'ultima categoria. E quella cosa è il gol.
meglio sed'attaccante d'area, ma di movimento, che sa colpire negli spazi.
Se due indizi fanno una prova, la dimostrazione è arrivata negli ottavi di Coppa di Germania, a Dresda contro la Dinamo, squadra di terza divisione.
Pratica risolta dal Borus…

Butler Game Notes

RUBBER MATCH:  Butler willl close out the home portion of its 2014-15 schedule when it faces Georgetown for the third time this season on Tuesday, March 3.  The key BIG EAST contest at Hinkle Fieldhouse is slated to tip at 7 p.m. (ET) and will be televised on FOX Sports 1.  Butler and Georgetown split the first 2 meetings this year, with the Bulldogs taking a 64-58 decision at the Battle 4 Atlantis and the Hoyas winning the first conference meeting, 61-59, on a three-point field goal by freshman Isaac Copeland in the closing seconds.  The Bulldogs, who have won 8 of 10 games since the loss to Georgetown, improved to 21-8 on the season and 11-5 in the BIG EAST with a 67-53 victory at DePaul on Saturday. That…

Butler hoping Andrew Chrabascz can go tonight vs. Hoyas

The Butler basketball team might get Andrew Chrabascz back Tuesday night. It won't be a moment too soon. The schedule is turning in a difficult direction.

The 21st-ranked Bulldogs, who are in second place in the Big East, host Georgetown Tuesday at Hinkle Fieldhouse before playing at No. 24 Providence on Saturday. Those two teams are tied for third, just one game back.

After that, the Bulldogs begin play in the Big East tournament next week. Win both this week's gamesand they earn a No. 2 seed and an opening game against one of the league's bottom feeders. Lose them both and Butler is probably the fourth seed, likely facing either Xavier or St. John's in its Big East tourney opener. Both are probable NCAA tournament teams.  St. John's would be playing on its quasi-home court at Madison Square Garden.

"Obviously, it goes without saying there are no easy nights in the Big East," Butler coach Chris Holtmann said. "But both these teams (Georgetown and Pr…

Georgetown-Butler Preview

With the regular season winding down, Butler and Georgetown have most likely done enough to assure themselves of NCAA tournament berths.

Still, these Big East foes have plenty to play for as the No. 21 Bulldogs wrap up their home schedule Tuesday night.

Butler (21-8, 11-5) climbed one game ahead of the Hoyas (18-9, 10-6) for second place in the conference after the teams posted contrasting results over the weekend.

The Bulldogs earned a 67-53 victory at DePaul on Saturday, while Georgetown fell 81-70 against St. Johns at Madison Square Garden.
Leading scorer Kellen Dunham led the way with 24 points and Butler outscored the Blue Demons 22-6 at the foul line.

The Bulldogs blew an early 10-point lead and trailed by six with 14:35 to go before pulling away.

"DePaul was our sole focus. We didn't talk about anything else," coach Chris Holtmann said. "We have not talked about league standings or where we're at or anything beyond that. We'll talk tomorrow about ho…
