Gold Coast captain Gary Abletts bid for a trade to former AFL club Geelong was quickly shut down by the Suns, according to the Cats. Duane Brown Texans Jersey .Suns chairman Tony Cochrane on Thursday played down Abletts eagerness to be traded back to his home town, but he has cast doubt on Abletts captaincy.Cochrane said Abletts request amounted to a brief conversation and the media reports around his desire to leave were the greatest beat-up.Gary, well before trade period, had a brief conversation with our head of football where he discussed, you know, look, if it helps to retain players, if youve got a salary cap issue or something, do you want me to consider going back to Geelong?, Cochrane told SEN radio.It was a simple as that.No, no way in the world, Gary. Youre absolutely wanted here. Fantastic.That was the end of it.But Cochrane said it was not certain Ablett would remain the Suns captain.Im not sure Gary wants to stay as captain, he said.Garys had a very frustrating couple of years with injury.We were already well in discussions with Gary going back into this season where he was discussing ... do I carry on as captain because maybe what I need to do is free myself up so I can just get really fit.The 32-year-old Ablett, who joined the club in 2010 from the Cats, is understood to have asked permission to re-join Geelong after his wife Jordan expressed her desire to move back to Victoria.But the request was knocked back by Gold Coast officials, according to Geelongs head of football Steve Hocking.The Gold Coast was very clear on the fact he was their player and will continue to be their player. He had just signed a three-year deal earlier in the year, Hocking told News Corp Australia.Ablett signed a $10-million contract to be the Suns inaugural skipper before inking a three-year extension last year.He has two years left on his contract.The Suns lost Dion Prestia (Richmond) and Jaeger OMeara (Hawthorn) during the trade period, but brought in Brisbane star Pearce Hanley and Jarryd Lyons from Adelaide. Quintin Demps Texans Jersey . Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie McGinn and Jan Hejda also scored for the Avalanche, who won despite being outshot 38-23. MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining.

Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. MIAMI -- The booming hip-hop on the stereo in the Cleveland Indians postgame clubhouse was quickly dialed down to low volume, and the celebration following their 15th shutout victory of the season was muted. The team had a plane to catch, and a big series to play beginning Monday. Scott Kazmir and three relievers combined on a four-hitter Sunday, and Cleveland won for the 10th time in the past 11 games, beating the Miami Marlins 2-0. The Indians begin a four-game series at home Monday against AL Central leader Detroit. With the win over Miami, Cleveland remained three games behind the Tigers. "Id rather be 10 up," manager Terry Francona said. "But this makes this really exciting. We get to play the best team in our division and see how we can do." The Indians took two of three games from Miami despite scoring a total of only six runs. Kazmir (7-4) won his fourth decision in a row by limiting the Marlins to two hits in six innings. Bryan Shaw, Joe Smith and Chris Perez pitched one inning each for the Indians, who lead the majors in shutouts. "It means were getting some solid pitching," Francona said. "And if youre going to go somewhere in this game, you need pitching." Shaw gave up two singles in the seventh but also struck out the side. Perez earned his 17th save in 19 chances by pitching a perfect ninth with the help of a diving catch by centre fielder Michael Bourn. Kazmir was pleased with his outing, the 200th of his career, but the left-handers grin grew widest as he discussed his fifth-inning single, his first hit since 2007. "That was great," he said. "A lot of trash-talking has been going on the past couple of days -- actually pretty much the whole year. So it was good to get that." Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Brantley drove in runs. Catcher Yan Gomes had three hits, scored a run and picked a runner off first. Manager Jack McKeon and 13 players from the Marlins 2003 World Series championship team were on hand to celebrate their 10-year anniversary, but their success wasnt contagious. Miami, which ranks last in the majors in runs and batting, was shut out for the 13th time. With runners in scoring position, the Marlins wennt 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. Kevin Johnson Texans Jersey. "Were not getting a ton of hits, and in a game like this that hurts you," manager Mike Redmond said. Slumping slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts and finished the series 1 for 11 with five strikeouts, dropping, his average to .245. "Its something you just go through, and it always works itself out eventually," he said. Nathan Eovaldi (2-2) allowed only one run in seven innings and hit 100 mph on the radar gun. The Marlins havent scored when Eovaldis on the mound over his past four starts. "That kid has a tremendous arm," Francona said. "When you got the ball down there wasnt much you could do with it." Marlins pitchers have gone 12 consecutive games without allowing a home run, the longest such streak in the majors since the 1998 Braves had streaks of 14 and 12 games. The streak nearly ended when Mark Reynolds doubled off the left-field fence in the second inning. That put runners at second and third, and Chisenhall stumbled and fell halfway down the first-base line as he ran out a grounder that went foul. He sheepishly rose and returned to the plate, then hit the next pitch for an RBI single and a 1-0 lead. Brantley ended an 0-for-14 slump when he hit a two-out, 3-2 pitch for an RBI single in the eighth. Hes batting .346 this year with runners in scoring position. "It was a battle," Brantley said. "I fouled off a couple of hard sliders. It was nice to get a little breathing room." With the victory, Cleveland won a road series for the first time since June. Bring on the Tigers. "Weve got to defend our home territory," Brantley said. "Well see where we stand." Notes: The Marlins fell to 4-10 in interleague play. ... The Indians didnt attempt a steal against C Jeff Mathis after going 6 for 6 Saturday, when Rob Brantly was behind the plate. ... Miamis Ed Lucas was awarded a ground-rule double in the first inning when the ball became wedged in the base of the left-field fence under an advertising sign. He was stranded there. ...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Gary Medel Maglia . -- Playing inside or outside, Moe Wagner doesnt have a preference. Just being on the floor for extended minutes is a priority right now for the 6-foot-11 Michigan sophomore from Berlin, Germany.Wagner played a season-high 25 minutes and responded with a career-high 20 points, leading four Wolverines in double figures during an 82-55 win over Kennesaw State on Saturday.Prone to foul trouble and defensive lapses for much of his college career, Wagner was able to show off both his 3-point range and post moves against an undersized Kennesaw State (3-6) team. He made 7 of 8 shots from the floor, including 3 of 4 3-pointers.Im just happy my teammates trust me with both aspects (inside and outside), so Im just going to keep working on both of them, said Wagner, who is shooting 17 of 22 (.772) over the past three games.Zak Irvin scored 19 points, D.J. Wilson added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Derrick Walton Jr. finished with 13 points and eight assists for the Wolverines (6-2).Like Wagner, Wilson has had his own battles with foul trouble. He was limited to two points in 11 minutes before fouling out in the Wolverines last game, a 73-70 loss to Virginia Tech. He and Wagner played together for extended stretches Saturday, giving Michigan a pair of players over 6-foot-10.We havent got the opportunity to play together a lot, but when we do I think it opens up a lot on things on the court, both offensively and defensively, said Wilson, who also made a 3-pointer along with being on the receiving end of two alley-oop passes from Walton. Were both versatile and both skilled.Although Wilson said part of his plan to stay on the floor longer was to take my foot off the gas peddle when going after offensive rebounds. He was still able to post the second double-double of his career.Were going to play a lot better teams than Kennesaw, but its good that (Wilsons) in there and and mixing it up, Michigan coach John Beilein said. Last year, he spent a lot of time drifting around the 3-point line.Kennesaw State kept things interesting early when Kendrick Ray scored 10 of his game-high 24 points over a five-minute stretch of the first half to help the Owls erase Michigans early 10-2 advantage and take an 18-16 lead of its own.The Owls never led again, however, and Michigan was in control by halftime, when it used a 17-2 run to take a 47-29 lead into the locker room. The Wolverines biggest lead was 35 points midway through the second half.BIG PICTUREKennesaw State: Despite staying close early thanks to outside shooting, the Owls couldnt compete against the bigger Wolverines on the inside. Aubrey Williams, a 6-foot-7 forward who ranked fourth in the country with 12.8 rebounds per game, had just four against Michigans bigger post players.Michigan: Coming off a home loss to Virginia Tech, which Beilein blamed on a poor defensive performance, the Wolverines had a laundry list of things to improve on. Beilein noted that although Ray was able to knock down some shots, Walton and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman limited him to one assist and forced seven turnovers. The Wolverines also limited the Owls to three offensive rebounds, more than 10 shy of their season average.GOING FOR 80Michigan improved to 51-1 under 10th-year coach John Beilein when scoring 80 or more points.MILESTONE AWAITSSecond-year Kennesaw State coach Al Skinner missed in his first chance to pick up his 400th career victory.

BOSTON -- David Ortiz has knocked plenty of teams out of the playoffs with his late-inning heroics. Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey .This time he is hurting the Toronto Blue Jays chances of making it there.The soon-to-retire Red Sox slugger opened his final weekend with yet another game-winning homer on Friday night, lining a two-run shot into the right-field stands to break a seventh-inning tie and help Boston beat Toronto 5-3.The Blue Jays fell one game behind Baltimore in the wild-card race and are now within range of Detroit and Seattle in the fight for the ALs final postseason berth.We needed it. We need every game, said Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada, who lasted five innings but left with a 3-1- lead. Were still in it. Were right there.Devon Travis had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and Jose Batista homered for Toronto. But the Blue Jays blew the lead in the seventh.Andrew Benintendi led with a double and Dustin Pedroia dribbled one to the third base side. Catcher Russell Martins throw went past first baseman Justin Smoak; the ball got trapped under the tarp down the right-field line and time was called.Benintendi took off for third, and Pedroia scrambled back to first. Toronto manager John Gibbons came out to argue, but things got worse when the umpires awarded Pedroia second base; after some more arguing, Benintendi was pointed home.I picked up the ball, slick ball, turned around and threw it as quickly as I could. It just took off on me, Martin said. I wish I could take it back. I feel like thats a play I can make in my sleep but today it didnt happen.One out later, Mookie Betts singled to make it 3-3, and then Brett Cecil came in to face Ortiz. The crowd, which sat through a 25-minute rain delay to see him, rose to its feet chanting Papi!After working the count to 2-1, Ortiz lined the ball past the Pesky Pole to send Fenway into one more frenzy. The chants waned slightly before Ortiz popped out of the dugout for a curtain call.Ive seen it for 10 years: Every time theres a big situation, hes always found a way to come through, said Pedroia, who had three hits and reached 201 for the season. Were going to enjoy it, because its pretty special.With his image mowed into the grass in center for the final regular-season series of his career, Ortiz was honored in a pregame ceremony and responded with an RBI single in the first. With his 38th homer -- No. 541 of his career, Ortiz tied Ken Griffey Jr. and Rafael Palmeiro for eighth on baseballs all-time list with 1,192 extra-base hits.On a night that begins a weekend celebration, I dont know that you can write a script for what David did here tonight offensively, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Nights like tonight he almost leaves you speechless. ... (He) turned this place upside down.Told that Farrell called it a storybook finish, Ortiz said, I wish that it is.We worked pretty hard to get here, and its working out pretty good, the 40-year-old slugger said.The Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak and stayed a half-game ahead of Cleveland in the race for home-field advantage when their playoff series begins next week.PITCHERSBrad Ziegler (2-3) picked up the win with one inning of scoreless relief after major league wins-leader Rick Porcello failed to pick up his 23rd victory. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 31st save.Joe Biagini (4-3) allowed three runs and four hits in 1 1/3 innings.TRAINERS ROOMToronto: Estrada took an Ortiz liner off the leg in the third inning but fielded the ball and remained in the game.Boston: Farrell said knuckleballer Steven Wright would need two more bullpen sessions before facing live batters and thus was ruled out for at least the first round of the postseason.UP NEXTBlue Jays: LHP J.A.

In October, espnWs weekly essay series will focus on heroes.I dont remember when I first started running with my dad. There were the early-morning wake-ups to go skiing, the bike rides with strudel as the proverbial carrot and voyages in our inflatable boat that was called?The Challenger.Now, in my late 30s, its the running that has stuck. At 70, my dads pace has slowed, but hes still as religious -- compulsive, as he puts it -- about his running schedule.Every other day, in sun, fog, snow or sleet, my dad pulls on his running outfit -- a mixed-media affair that weve tried to update over the years -- turns on the morning news and begins his physical therapy routine that lasts for about 40 minutes.Then the soft knee braces go on. Followed by the running shoes, sunscreen, and his sweat-stained baseball hat, where the peaks of perspiration have created a mountain range of salt summits across the front.Eventually -- sometimes under duress, or his annoyed shouting from the road -- Ill head outside, and well be off.As we settle into rhythm, the chatting begins. Small talk is not his thing. Sometimes its politics. Elizabeth Warren was at a local fundraiser and was as impressive in person as she seems on television, my father explained. Sometimes its neighborhood news. A tourist had a dog on the beach but got comeuppance when the cops were called, he would retell me.More often than not, its my career. In fact, the trajectory of my adult life can be traced in jogs with my father, and not always fun ones.Among the first was when I was in the throes of a job that had dragged me under. As we rounded the corner of my parents street, the sound of gravel and sand underfoot, I defended my well-paid job as a celebrity reporter.We get in a certain track, my dad told me, professionally. If this wasnt the track I wanted, Id better move on.The toughest jog I ever took with my dad was a few years later, when I had found work, but was struggling.It was August, and steamy. Rivulets of sweat were rolling down my temples, my breath was easy, despite the heat. I couldnt talk to my dad?about how often I was crying alone.I didnt want another nudge to move back East where, my dad said, there was more opportunity. And more educated people. And family. Instead, I just kept movving in the thick summer air. Vince Williams Steelers Jersey. We were on the sand now, bathed in sweat, at low tide.It was time to sprint past the Yankees flag planted in a neighbors yard -- another local affront, but a good end-of-run finish line. We ran hard and high-fived and congratulated ourselves.Six months later, we ran together again. The Santa Monica air was cool and dry, and the sky had that mix of blue and gray that California gets on winter days. We jogged up the tree-lined side streets to my local park, where you could make a few laps or cut them short.He was thrilled with it -- the picnicking families, the planes landing nearby, the bright bougainvillea draping the route like curtains. As we panted along, I told him that things were finally getting better. I was on medication that made me feel like myself again. I was freelancing on top of my day job, and best of all, I had ideas and plans and energy.Over the years, I stopped running on my own as often; between injuries and, frankly, boredom, I lost the will to trot myself around the pretty blocks of Santa Monica, which had begun to feel monotonous. I still made sure to pack my running gear every time I visited my parents.There is, in that repetition, not just a comfort, as I had always seen it, but a profound drive. Jogging isnt my fathers only habit: there is piano -- thats nightly, for two hours before dinner, not including lessons and recitals. And writing, on the mornings hes not jogging, and newspaper-reading, every day, after writing or jogging.At worst, my dads routine is an infuriating rigidity that has overridden all kinds of other things -- earlier dinnertimes, for starters. At best, its pure dedication, a devotion to making time to breathe and think.For me, its been the subconscious push to keep going when its cold and rainy, when Id rather stay in bed, and when theres a wrong turn and no end in sight.Whether my dads running habit is a function of a strong work ethic or a fanatical compulsion doesnt really matter. In a literal sense, jogging with him for 30 minutes every other day has been the comforting habit I get to come home to, no matter what season it is. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 
(Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays are about to enter the Alex Rodriguez circus. Adidas Pure Boost Rosse . New York enters this twin-bill on the heels of an emotional win in Boston on Sunday that saw the Yankees score four times in the sixth inning in a 9-6 win. Brett Gardeners three-run triple highlighted the big frame, while Rodriguez homered and finished 3-for-4, as the Yanks won for the sixth time in their last eight games. Earlier in the contest Rodriguez had been hit by Ryan Dempster (6-9), resulting in both benches clearing briefly and New York manager Joe Girardi being ejected from the game after both teams received warnings. "Whether you like me or hate me, whats wrong is wrong. That was unprofessional and silly," Rodriguez said. "Today kind of brought us together." New York finds itself eight games back of the Red Sox in the division and is 6 1/2 back of the wild card. Getting the call for the Yanks in game one will be right-hander Ivan Nova, who is 6-4 with a 2.99 ERA. Nova picked up the win against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Wednesday, as he allowed three runs and 10 hits in 7 1/3 innings. He also struck out six without walking a batter. Nova has been magnificent over his past seven starts, posting a 1.89 ERA with 50 strikeouts to 12 walks over 52 1/3 innings. Phil Hughes will go for the Yanks in the second game after a solid outing his last time out. The right-hander, who has pitched to a 6.03 ERA at Yankee Stadium, is just 2-10 with a 5.23 ERA over his past 16 starts overall. Hughes lost to the Angels on Thursday, but pitched well, giving up three runs and six hits in six innings. Still, he fell to 4-12 on the year to go along with a 4.97 ERA. "It was obviously better; it was hard to pitch much worse than I had been," Hughes said. "It felt like the results werent exactly what I wanted, but I felt like I threw the ball OK. But at the end of the day, its a loss, which is not what we set out to accomplish today." Toronto, meanwhile, lost two of three over the weekend to Tampa Bay and has dropped five of its last eight. The Jays are in the midst of 10-game road trip and are 26-35 away from home this season. Theyll hand the ball to righty Esmil Rogers in the first game on Tuesday. Rogers did not get a decision on Wednesday in an emergency start against Boston, but was terrific, allowing just a run and five hits in six innings of his teams 4-3 win. He is 3-7 on the year with a 4.91 ERA and is winless in his last 10 appearances. Getting the ball in the second game for Toronto will be lefty Mark Buehrle, who has won his last four decisions. Buehrle beat the Red Sox on Thursday, limiting them to a run and 10 hits in seven innings to push his record to 9-7, while lowering his ERA to 4.29. The Blue Jays have won each of Buehrles last five starts and he is 4-0 over that span with a 2.36 ERA. "Im just trying to get on a roll right now," Buehrle said. "I dont care if were out of the playoffs, or in the playoffs, if were in the thick of it. I go out there and try to win every start. No matter what the situation is, Im going out there trying to compete and trying to win." New York, though, has given him fits over his career. Buehrle has already lost twice to the Yankees this season and is just 1-10 lifetime against them with a 6.28 ERA in 15 starts. The Yankees have beaten the Blue Jays in eight of nine matchups this season, including all six in the Bronx. Adidas Originals Honey donna .

TAMPA, Fla. Devin McCourty Jersey . -- Jameis Winston lights up when he talks about his competitive nature.Theres no throw the emerging young quarterback feels he cant make, no drive he cant extend with his feet, and certainly no team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers arent capable of beating when hes on his game.Winston wants his teammates to believe, too.Its a mentality that youve got to have, and its an easy choice. ... Youve got to want to win, the No. 1 overall pick in last years NFL draft said.As a team, we have to make that choice together. Im not saying just because I want to win ... someone else wants to win. Im saying all of us have to be together and be on the same page because if we have the same common goal, the same focus, were going to win a lot of football games.The Bucs improved from two wins in 2014 to six a year ago, when Winston took every snap as a rookie and threw for 4,042 yards and 22 touchdowns. That wasnt enough to save coach Lovie Smiths job, but it was encouraging enough that ownership promoted Dirk Koetter from offensive coordinator to Smiths replacement in hopes it will help Winston continue to grow.Before you start winning games, youve got to stop losing them, said Koetter, whose first order of business was to hire one of his old bosses -- ex-Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith -- as defensive coordinator.The Bucs also signed pass rusher Robert Ayers Jr. and cornerback Brent Grimes in free agency before selecting cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III and defensive end Noah Spence to bolster a leaky defense that allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete opponents to complete 70 percent of their passes and throw for 31 TDs last season.Still, if the team is going to escape the NFC South basement and contend for its first playoff berth since 2007, Winston likely will have to set the tone -- both on and off the field.Koetter believes the 22-year-old quarterback is up to the challenge.Jameis every day asserts himself more and more as a leader, the coach said. He still has plenty of things he needs to work on as the quarterback, but I love what he is doing leadership wise. ... He is the motivator for our whole team. Heck, he motivates me.Some other things to know as the Bucs launch their bid to end a string of five consecutive last-place finishes:AIR WINSTON: Winston joined Cam Newton and Andrew Luck as the only players in NFL history to throw for 4,000 yards as a rookie, helping the Bucs finish in the top five in total offense for the first time. He also proved to be an effective runner, scrambling for six touchdowns, which tied 1,400-yard rusher Doug Martin for the team lead. Teammates rave about the young QBs preparation and knowledge of Koetters system.I said many times, I think theres a little bit of a misnomer out there that theres not a lot on Jameis plate, or that it wasnt last year, Koetter said. If youre playing quarterback in the NFL, theres a lot on your plate.FIXING THE D: General manager Jason Licht spent his first two drafts upgrading a sputtering offense. He turned his attention to the defense this offseason, landing Ayers, Grimes and LB Daryl Smith in free agency before adding Hargreaves and Spence early in the draft. Improving an inconsistent pass rush has been a priority since the team last made the playoffs.SOMETHING TO PROVE: Despite topping 1,000 yards receiving each of his first two seasons, WR Mike Evans enters his third year feeling as if he has a lot to prove after leading the team in dropped passes and scoring only three touchdowns a year ago, down from 12 as a rookie in 2014.HANDING OFF: RB Doug Martin took some of the burden off Winston to carry the Bucs with 1,402 yards rushing, second in the NFL behind Adrian Peterson. He was rewarded with a five-year, $37.75 million contract. Backup Charles Sims was effective a year ago, too, finishing with 529 yards rushing and 561 yards receiving.PLAYOFF TIME: Four-time Pro Bowl DT Gerald McCoy is entering his seventh season and has yet to experience the postseason. He has a good feeling about this team.Great coach, great staff, we put in a lot of work this offseason, McCoy said. The maturity level of the team is much different than its been in the past. Even with us having a lot of young guys, we have a lot of maturity in those young guys and not really many egos. That goes a long way on a winning football team.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL James Develin Patriots Jersey . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. Brandon Bolden Patriots Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. http://www.authenticpatriotsfanatic.com/c-31-patriots-shea-mcclellin-jersey.aspx . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance.Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed he gets butterflies in the build-up to big matches as the Argentine prepares to take on Liverpool in Sundays Capital One Cup final at Wembley. Aguero has competed in a number of major finals for club and country during his illustrious career, including the 2010 Europa League with Atletico Madrid, the 2014 League Cup with City and the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 Copa America for his country.But despite playing at the very top of the game for several years, the forward still gets nervous in the days leading up to showpiece events - at least until the first whistle sounds. Sergio Aguero has played in many big games, including the 2014 World Cup final The butterflies are always there, Aguero told Sky Sports. Thats normal in any game. When it is a final, you just want to get the preparation over and play.Obviously you are wanting to do well, but as soon as you are out on the field that anxiety tends to go away once you start enjoying yourself in the game. Once you get on the ball, the nerves go.I like to have the same mental approach as when I was a kid. I like to enjoy it, whether it is training or a game. It is important somebody still has to win and lose, but the main thing is to enjoy it and that is the kind of attitude I take into training and into games. We will be going all out for some sort of revenge and hopefully we have learnt from that and will get our own back in the final Sergio Aguero Once Sundays encounter with Liverpool gets under way, Aguero says he will approach it like he does any other match in an attempt to relax himself.I try to play a normal game, forget it is a final, and do not make any special plans, he said. However, it is a funny one as sometimes the team that plays the worst in a final ends up winning.What it is all about is eliminating individual errors, ironing out mistakes as they can be costly in games. There is no forgiveness in finals like there can be in the league, you need to be 100 per cent focused and concentrated going into the game and do not make one little error that might cost us the final. Aguero believes mental as well as physical preparation is key in the lead-up to big contests. Nate Washington Patriots Jersey. How you prepare mentally can dictate how you are going to perform in the final, he said. Focus on the game and the task in hand and what is in the head can dictate whether you win or lose or have a good game or not.You need to focus on what you have been doing well, give everything and leave everything out there as it is a final. Go in with a positive mental attitude to try and win the game, do not forget to try and enjoy it and almost get lost in the game, because sometimes nerves creep in and you can be a bit more anxious when going into a final. Liverpool beat Man City 4-1 in the Premier League in November The 27-year-old knows that City will face a tough examination against Jurgen Klopps side at Wembley, especially in light of what happened the last time the teams met.On that occasion in November, Liverpool beat City 4-1 in the Premier League, but Aguero hopes he and his team-mates will have learned lessons from that meeting at the Etihad.It is a final, so they will give everything they can, he said. It is probably their best chance of a trophy and they will want to make their fans happy by giving their best performance.We expect a difficult game bearing in mind the defeat earlier in the season, but we will be going all out for some sort of revenge. They played well, but hopefully we have learnt from that and will get our own back in the final. Aguero won the League Cup with Manchester City in 2014 And Aguero recognises just how vital it is for City to get their hands on the seasons first piece of silverware - as they also did two years ago under Manuel Pellegrini - especially after all the millions the clubs UAE-based owners have spent on the team.It is very important to win Capital One Cup, he said.It is an important trophy for us, the club have invested a lot to win trophies and it will be marvellous to win it again.
