Fellow goalkeeper David Cornell has also been released along with Rory Donnelly, Tom Atyeo, Corey Francis, Giancarlo Gallifuoco, Joseph Jones, Kurtis March, Gareth Owen, Scott Tancock and Curtis Obeng. “I’m sorry to go, but I’ve loved every minute of it,” Tate told the club’s official website. “It goes without saying that I’d like to thank everyone for making my time at Swansea so special – from the club, staff, players, supporters and the city as a whole. “I’m pleased to have helped the club go from strength to strength since that game against Hull way back in 2003.” He added: “There are probably a lot better footballers than me who have worn the Swans shirt over the years, but I’d like to think that there have been few who have tried harder. “The fans have been superb and I’ve found over the years that if they can see you giving 100 per cent then that’s good enough for them. “I’m leaving a fantastic club with my head held high – and I’ll always be proud of that.” Press Association Alan Tate and Gerhard Tremmel have been released by Swansea as boss Garry Monk attempts to build on the club’s highest ever Premier League finish.center_img Defender Tate played a key role in the Swans’ rise through the divisions, including the game that secured their Football league status in 2003 while on loan from Manchester United.

76ers still sound unsure how to expand Ben Simmons’ game

first_imgSimmons has been criticized by those within and outside the Philadelphia organization for not evolving his game to include long-range shooting, which continues to be his singular but glaring weakness.He played well against the Thunder following Brown’s public message, scoring 17 points, grabbing 15 boards and dishing eight assists. The effort kept him on an All-Star trajectory.But Simmons did not attempt a 3-pointer in Monday night’s game. Before the contest, Brown shouldered blame for the lack of jumpers by Simmons but did not provide a plan to correct course.”Evidently I have failed, and it’s something that we’re all mindful of, and this is one of these things that is never gonna go away,” Brown told reporters. “The attention this has received is remarkable. But I guess I helped fuel it, and I own it. I’ve got to help him find this, and most importantly, he has to help himself.”#Sixers coach Brett Brown responds to Ben Simmons not shooting a three-pointer per game after Brown suggested in a post-game press conference last month that he do so:— Keith Pompey (@PompeyOnSixers) January 6, 2020MORE: Bleakest NBA franchises Brett Brown has said on multiple occasions he wants Ben Simmons to shoot regularly from behind the arc.
