Sid, that was the big argument when I was younger

Charlie Nicholas has labelled his former club Celtic as stale and says they have regressed while rivals Rangers have taken big strides forward this season. Ted Williams Red Sox Jersey . Ronny Deilas side lead Aberdeen at the top of the Premiership by eight points but suffered their second cup semi-final defeat this season on Sunday, losing 5-4 on penalties to Rangers following a 2-2 draw after extra time.Nicholas, who had two spells with the club in the 1980s and 1990s, says changes need to be made in the wake of their Scottish Cup exit but thinks the problems go beyond under-fire manager Deila. Nicholas expects Ronny Deila to leave Celtic this summer I said before kick-off there would be no excuse for Celtic if they didnt take care of Rangers, Nicholas told Sky Sports News HQ. Whether Rangers are on the up, which they are, or because they are a good passing team, which they are, it had no relevance to Celtic.The consequences to Celtic today and from now on are gigantic but Rangers have taken a big jump forward and Celtic have gone a big step back. Celtic owner Dermot Desmond (middle) with chairman Ian Bankier (right) and chief executive Peter Lawwell at Hampden It goes much further [than Deila]. It has been brewing since Rangers left the [top] league. Celtic got cocky and now they are a stale football club. The owner [Dermot Desmond] is stale, we very rarely see him here, we dont know if he is making big decisions anymore. [Chief executive] Peter Lawwell is in charge of recruitment when it should be the manager.Nicholas was full of praise for Rangers and manager Mark Warburton following their semi-final triumph and said they were the better team at Hampden.  Deila on the brink Celtic manager Ronny Deila is on the brink of losing his job, says Andy Walker I think everybody was saying it would take a bit of time for Rangers to catch up but you have to give Mark Warburton credit. The work he has done in a short space of time, how they pass the ball, how they move the ball, quite a few young players.Its a very exciting time for Rangers who have been under a black cloud for such a long time. Now they have moved on to Celtic and not only have they said weve caught you up but look forward to next season now as well. Rangers secured a place in the final of the Scottish Cup with a 5-4 penalty shootout victory over Celtic at Hampden Park I thought they were the best team in control of the ball, they worked hard without the ball. When they had it they were comfortable.I was listening to the Sky Sports panel yesterday and Neil Lennon was saying it, Rangers were playing the Celtic passing game that Celtic now under Ronny Deila should be playing. They never looked comfortable on the ball, they never looked together when they didnt have the ball. They defended badly, bad decision making. Nicholas praised Rangers manager Mark Warburton and his team Nicholas thinks Celtic will part company with their manager in the summer but says Deila must remain in charge until the end of the season so there is no disruption to their title bid.[Gordon] Strachan came in and had to slash the budget and was very successful, he said. Neil Lennon came in and had a tight budget but was successful. Deila has come in, and he has to take his responsibilities, I dont think Ronny was the right man at the time, I still expect him to win the league. Celtic boss Ronny Deila says their performance was not at the level he expects after they lost to Rangers I dont think he has been strong enough to stand up against it and say I dont want the players you are giving me, I want better players than that. They spent £6m on two centre-backs. Why not spend £6m on a couple of exciting, attack-minded players?But they go to Dundee United, they buy someone for £750,000 or £1m. They have gone down the cheap and cheerful route - and now it is not cheerful anymore.If he wins the title he might think that is enough to keep him in a job but Celtic are expected to win the title so I think in the summer there will be a change but, then again, the type of managers who always get linked with it - they talked about David Moyes, Malky Mackay, Roy Keane - they tried to get him and couldnt convince him. Celtics Patrick Roberts reacts after a missed shot Celtic have to change their policy, they have to get a manager who becomes a footballing manager who has got control of the football team, who can bring in players. You dont let accountants and scouts go and do that job for you. They have to change, they are too stale and if they stay stale they will struggle to get a top name manager.

"Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. This weeks Big Question: Who is the best player in the league?Wayne Gretzky: Sid is still the best player in hockey. Thats a mantle you earn over time. Its one of those things where you earn that right to have that title, until somebody takes it away from you. Is?Connor [McDavid] a great player? Absolutely. Does Connor have an opportunity to be the next [Sidney] Crosby? Absolutely. Right now, Sidney deserves to be known as the best player in the game. Hes been the best player consistently in his career. Hes won Stanley Cups and hes won gold medals. Until somebody takes that mantle away from him, hes still going to hold the crown.Joe Thornton, C, San Jose Sharks: Oh, Sidney Crosby. Im a Sidney Crosby fan. Hes ultracompetitive. Great speed, great shot, great passer. Just has a lot of the attributes youd want to start a hockey team with.Zach Parise, C, Minnesota Wild: Sid is playing great, but man, Connor McDavid is good, oh my God. But I still think today. ... Ive got to say I still think Sid. Its tough but I really do.Eastern Conference coach: Best player in the NHL right now would be?Carey Price?and Sidney Crosby. No. You know what? Sorry. I think its Connor McDavid and Carey Price, and Sid would be my third.Ben Bishop, G, Tampa Bay Lightning: I think you look at the way Sidney Crosbys playing right now, its hard to argue that theres anybody playing much better than him. What is he turning, 30 this year? Hes still pretty young. I know the leagues changed, kind of to the teens and young 20s, but, no, I think hes still right in his prime. He looks better than he has in years past. Hes got that fire, hes on a different level right now. Its fun to watch. Not so much fun to play against.Shane Doan, C, Arizona Coyotes: I think Sidney Crosby has established himself with what hes doing right now. Its amazing to see how he just does whatever he needs to do.Cam Fowler, D, Anaheim Ducks: Whew. I think its got to be Connor McDavid right now. Just his combination of speed and skill and being able to do things at a high pace is incredible. We dont get to see Sid that often, but the year that hes having with the injuries too, you can pretty much go eitther way with that one. Fred Lynn Red Sox Jersey. Aaron Ekblad, D, Florida Panthers: Its got to be Sid, right? Hes consistently amazing. There are obviously a lot of great players that do a lot of great things on different nights, guys like him, and [Patrick] Kane, and [Jonathan] Toews, they are consistently amazing -- not good -- amazing every single night they step on the ice.Jarome Iginla, RW, Colorado Avalanche: McDavid has been very impressive, and playing against him you see what he can do and how he can control a game, but its hard to go against Sid. I think coming off a Stanley Cup, what he did at the World Cup, what hes doing already at the start of the season since hes been back [from a concussion], so I would still, personally right now, go with Sid. Ask me in another couple of years, maybe it changes, but right now Id probably say Sid.Nazem Kadri, C, Toronto Maple Leafs: Id have to go with Sid, with what hes doing this year and how hes putting that team on his shoulders, Id have to go with him for sure. Because hes just so dangerous.Jakob Chychrun, D, Arizona Coyotes:?100 percent [Sidney Crosby]. I was the biggest Sidney Crosby fan growing up. I grew up playing center and playing forward. He was my idol growing up. When I was a kid, all my friends, it was the stage between Ovi and Sid, that was the big argument when I was younger -- still is, but it was huge back then. All my teammates gave me heck, and said Ovi is way better. I stood by Sids side through it all. I would argue with everybody. I still believe that. For sure.Eastern Conference scout: Oh, man, thats tough. I think it comes down to McDavid or Crosby. McDavid is carrying that team. If you take him out of the lineup, theyre nowhere close to where they are today. McDavid hasnt done it long enough and hes still very young, still learning. I would say Crosby is the best in the league. He can do everything and anything he wants to do if he sets his mind to it. Thats what I love about Sids game.-- Joe McDonald, Pierre LeBrun, Craig Custance, Scott Burnside Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys White NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys ' ' '
