Aston Villa coach Bruce hail Abraham, Bolasie after goalscoring home debuts – football news

Aston Villa coach Steve Bruce has heaped praises on Tammy Abraham and Yannick Bolasie after the duo scored on their home debuts to hand the hosts a 2-0 victory over Rotherham United.

After making an eventful bow at Ewood Park over the weekend, Abraham opened his Villa account just before the half-hour mark to give his side the lead.

“I’m sure he’ll be delighted with the goal,” Bruce said after the game.

“It’s the first time he’s played back-to-back games since last December.

“He can only get better; he’s a very, very good young player. Hopefully, he’s got a bright future here.”

The Chelsea loanee started the game partnering Jonathan Kodija in attack, with Villa star Jack Grealish behind the African duo.

The strikers showed a glimpse of their threat against Blackburn Rovers after the Cote d’Ivoire international’s second-half introduction, but playing together from the start on Tuesday, it was in full effect as Kodija’s flick set the 20-year-old up for his maiden Villa goal.

Speaking on a burgeoning partnership, Bruce said: “Tammy has Kodjia and Grealish to one side, Bolasie, El Ghazi and Adomah all in and around him, too.

“We’ve got a threat at the top end of the pitch.

“John McGinn had another good evening, as did Conor Hourihane, who’s forced his way back into the team. That’s how quickly it can change.

“They can all rest easy that they performed well.”

Nine minutes after coming on, Bolasie wrapped up the scoring at Villa Park.

The Everton loanee, who has had injuries plaque his progress, directed a bullet header past Rotherham’s goalkeeper Marek Rodak off an Ahmed Elmohamady cross.

Despite still being ‘a little short’ in terms of fitness, Bruce looks to having him for a ‘big part’ as the season progresses.

“As a substitute for half an hour, he’s shown just how good he can be.

“Fitness-wise, he’s still a little short. But we’ll build him up with half an hour here, 45 minutes there.

“We’ve got a long, gruelling winter ahead. We’ve only just started and he’ll have a big part to play.”

Next up for Aston Villa is a visit from Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Lampard photoshopped into image promoting new state park in New York – football news

An archived image of Derby County manager Frank Lampard has resurfaced in a photoshop ploy designed to advertise a new state park in America’s most famous city.

The 40-year-old coach played for New York City FC in their 2015 and 2016 MLS campaigns, making 29 appearances for the club and contributing 15 goals in the process.

Lampard’s time in New York has led to him being strangely featured in a new marketing campaign.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave an update on how Shirley Chisholm State Park is expected to look when it is completed in 2019 and Lampard has found himself at the centre of the new designs.

Company officials clearly used photo editing software to impose an old picture of the Englishman running in his NYCFC training gear in Central Park onto an imaginary backdrop on the waterfront.

It hasn’t taken long for people to notice these lazy computer effects online, as several Twitter accounts have taken to the social media platform to comment on the questionable editing on display in the images.

One particular user dubbed the responsible party “my new hero” whilst others took the opportunity to poke fun at Lampard for his perceived lack of energy during his time as a player in MLS.

“Frank Lampard has done more running in this photoshop than he had with NYCFC,” another account posted on Thursday.

Lampard is now assured of being immortalised in New York marketing history forever as a result of this latest news, however, he might not be overly happy about it when he finds out why.
