Ivan Toney interview: Brentford striker on exceeding expectations, proving doubters wrong and competition with Marcus Forss | Football News

first_img Image:Brentford have won four of their opening 11 Championship fixtures  Image:Toney scored eight goals in just six games in October But it’s competition by name only, insists Toney.“If I can help him in any way then that’s the kind of person I am. If he scores a goal, I’m just as happy as he is for me. As long as we are both doing well, that’s all we can do. We bounce off each other and it helps. The manager has a choice to pick a striker; it’s me at the moment and it’s just up to me to keep my shirt.“As a striker, you want to score as many goals as possible and the more games there are, the more goals you can get. I’m excited for the next period and I just want to get more goals under my belt, as well as three points, to push us forward to getting promoted.” 1:58 Following news that Brentford had agreed a fee a few days prior, Sky Sports News travelled to Posh’s training ground to gauge Toney’s thoughts. “I want to play at the highest possible level – the Premier League,” he said. “I feel like my ability will get me there, whether it’s now, next season or whenever.”A short clip of the interview subsequently did the rounds in the increasingly volatile social media environment and what followed was a significant outpouring of vitriol, with his attitude and ability quickly called into question. It was mid-August and, with just weeks until the start of the 2020/21 campaign, speculation surrounding the future of Ivan Toney was beginning to ramp up.Peterborough had missed out on a place in the Sky Bet League One play-offs on a points-per-game basis and, having scored 26 goals in 39 games, the striker’s stock was at an all-time high. Scottish champions Celtic were among a host of clubs with a reported interest.- Advertisement – Toney stated his future Premier League ambitions in an interview with Sky Sports News in August – Advertisement – Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Brentford and Middlesbrough. “People are going to have their opinions and just because it’s their opinion to have, it doesn’t mean it’s factual,” he says.“I see myself as a Premier League player. If I see myself as a Championship player, that’s not good enough. You have to aim higher and if you come just short then it’s not too bad. You must have high ambitions and high ambitions scare small-minded people. I’m excited to be in the Championship and I’m sure I can play a big part in taking Brentford to the Premier League.”When the dust had finally settled, the move to west London materialised on August 31, with the Bees forking out an initial £5million for his services, rising to a maximum of £10million including add-ons. Ollie Watkins was still on the club’s books at the time, though Toney’s arrival paved the way for his record-breaking move to Aston Villa.center_img Peterborough United striker Ivan ToneyImage:The 24-year-old scored 26 goals for Peterborough last season preview image 1:39 “It wasn’t much of a shock to the system, it was more excitement. When you are excited and you want to do something, you don’t really care how your body is. You look past that and just enjoy it,” he says.“I would never have thought I’d be in this position at the beginning of the season but I did believe in myself and I know what I’m capable of and it’s starting to really show. I’ve believed in myself, and the manager, all the staff and the players have helped me.“I feel like everyone is a team player; there’s no individuals or standouts. I know I’ve been scoring the goals but without them I wouldn’t have been able to score them. Everyone wants the same goal at the end, which is to get promoted.“It’s pretty much the same squad as last year, obviously taking out two players [Watkins and Said Benrahma]. I’m sure the whole team knows what it is like to be so close and then not make it. They don’t want the same heartache they had last year and we want to put things right.” Nonetheless, Watkins’ boots would take some filling. In his first season since moving in from the wing last summer, the 24-year-old had made the No 9 role his own, with 26 goals in 50 appearances. It represented a wholly daunting prospect for some.“I was just excited to take the challenge on because I like proving people wrong. Without blowing my own trumpet, I feel like I completed League One a few years ago,” Toney adds, with a smile.There were nerves when his first four games ended without a goal. But then one away at Millwall was followed by two against Preston, two against Coventry and two more against Sheffield Wednesday. Eight in six games in October saw him named Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for October. Needless to say, the naysayers vanished.Even more impressive was the way he picked up where he left off last season, as if the six-month break before his Bees debut never happened. As he speaks to Sky Sports, however, it doesn’t take long to realise that his statement was somewhat misconstrued.- Advertisement – Meanwhile, jostling with Toney at the top of the Championship scoring charts is Blackburn’s Adam Armstrong. The pair were under contract at Newcastle from 2014 to 2018, though neither managed to break through to the first team on a regular basis. “I think we both have a point to prove,” Toney continues.“When I went to Newcastle, Adam was out on loan, but we did speak and said we should both be playing up front together. It was never to happen but he is a great striker who knows where the goal is, for sure.”There’s competition closer to home, though. Fresh from a loan spell at AFC Wimbledon last season, Marcus Forss has forced his way into head coach Thomas Frank’s plans and currently has four league goals from his eight appearances – all have which have come from the bench – which represents an incredible average of one goal every 35 minutes. Not to mention the fact he scored on his senior debut for Finland earlier this week, against world champions France, no less. Peterborough striker Ivan Toney– Advertisement –last_img read more

Ady Cohen replaces Abbey Miller after 1st period, is lone bright spot in Syracuse’s 5-0 loss to Clarkson

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Megan Quinn shuffled to her left, stepping in front of goalie Ady Cohen. Mirroring Cohen, Quinn prepared for the oncoming Clarkson shot, absorbing the attempt with her chest pad and gathering the puck with her hands. She dropped it to the ice and skated away to spark a breakout. The block helped her goalie, who “stood on her head,” Tuesday night.Cohen had her best college performance despite Syracuse (5-9-2, 4-1-1 College Hockey America) losing 5-0 to reigning national champion and No. 3 Clarkson (15-3-1, 5-2-0 Eastern College Athletic Conference). The sophomore replaced starter and recently crowned CHA goalie of the month Abbey Miller in the second period, following a three-goal first period onslaught from Clarkson. After entering the game with 16 career saves in three games, Cohen tallied 23 saves and held the Golden Knights to just two goals over the final two frames.“She played great,” Stephanie Grossi said. “It could’ve been 12-0 if it wasn’t for Ady.”Cohen was tested 35 seconds into the second period, but she corralled a Clarkson breakaway shot against her chest. Four seconds later, the Golden Knights responded by scoring following a small skirmish for the puck in front of the net.But the Boynton Beach, Florida, native rebounded strong, allowing just one goal during the last 39 minutes of the contest. It was a confidence boost for Cohen, she said, tying her career-high in minutes played.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I always try to keep myself level-headed and calm, no matter the situation,” Cohen said. “I felt good going in there, I felt good about the saves I was making.”Her best stretch of the night came during a four-minute stint in the third period, when Clarkson earned its second and third power play opportunities of the game. The Golden Knights went on the offensive and battered Cohen with shots from all over the Syracuse zone. In total, Clarkson attempted nine shots during the man-up advantage. Cohen, however stopped each shot sent at her, holding the Golden Knights scoreless on its second consecutive power play.Fourteen seconds after the Orange killed Clarkson’s advantage, it committed another penalty, giving the Golden Knights another man-up. This time, Cohen faced six total shots and stopped all four on target.The barrage of stopped shots marked the most important moment of the night for Cohen, who thought that the final stanza was SU’s best.“They have a lot of individually skilled players,” Cohen said. “(In order to stop them) we have to stay true to our game, which we did in the third period. We held on for a while.”Cohen’s quickness in goal was the key to her success, Grossi said, allowing her the ability to respond to shots off rebounds and deflections on passes in front of the net. It’s an attribute that she uses in practice as well, Grossi added, and frustrates her teammates in drills.While she has impressed her teammates with her performance, Cohen is still firmly locked into the second-string goalie role for Syracuse. Miller remains the starter, but will have to shake off her performance on Tuesday if she wants it to stay that way, head coach Paul Flanagan said.“I don’t think she played well at all,” Flanagan said. “It’s like a pitcher not throwing strikes. It wasn’t her night. Does it get Abbey some rest and get her ready for the weekend? Potentially. But at the same time, I thought Ady did a really good job.” Comments Published on December 5, 2017 at 10:55 pm Contact Eric: erblack@syr.edu | @esblack34last_img read more
