VANCOUVER - Carl Robinson impressed in his first season as head coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps, but hes ready for more in 2015 and beyond. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Jersey .Robinson and his coaching staff signed multi-year contract extensions with the Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday, with the Wales international saying that although he was pleased with his first season as a manager, he wants to lead the team to even greater heights.Ill be even more determined to work even harder next year because I think we can get even better than we were last year, said Robinson.Thats saying something, as Robinson led Vancouver to arguably its best-ever season in 2014.Under his guidance the Whitecaps reached the MLS Cup playoffs and hit the 50 point-mark — the club’s highest-ever point total in Major League Soccer and the most ever by a Canadian MLS club. The team also won the Cascadia Cup and qualified for the CONCACAF Champions League for the first time in club history.In just one year, Carl and his staff have done an exceptional job in establishing a foundation, bringing in quality players and people, and taking this team to the next level, said Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi in a statement.They are all highly respected not only within our club, but also around the league and the soccer world. We are confident that their eye for talent, dedication and hard work will continue to yield positive results.Assistant coaches Martyn Pert and Gordon Forrest, and goalkeeper coach Marius Rovde also agreed to contract extensions with Vancouver. Robinson sees these deals as an opportunity to further push and challenge his players.Just because I end up signing a multi-year deal doesnt mean that my foot comes off the gas, said Robinson. Ill actually be putting more pressure on the players now because we put a foundation in place which I think was pretty successful. But I dont want to be pretty successful, I want to be very successful.The hard work starts now.The 38-year-old Robinson was named Whitecaps head coach December 2013 after two years as an assistant. Robinson began his coaching career as a player/assistant coach in his second and final season with New York Red Bulls. Robinson also played three seasons with Toronto FC, where he served as the co-captain from 2007 to 2009, and was twice named the clubs most valuable player.Robinson knows that although hes seen a lot of success in Vancouver, he and his staff must continue to evolve to keep the Whitecaps competitive.Im not naive enough to think that theres not areas I need to improve on, that me and my coaches need to get better on, because players expect that, said Robinson. That certainly will happen this year. Therell be more demands put on them.Well continue to have a learning environment, a constructive environment, for these players to progress as well. ... Its important we grow together.The terms of the deals were not disclosed, as per club policy.When asked if the contract takes Robinson through his three-year plan or his five-year plan — an attempt by a reporter to find out the length of the deals — the Whitecaps manager laughed and said Itll take me past the next year, Ill give you that. Liverpool Jerseys . Harris has played in six games since joining the Argos in 2012, completing 17-of-35 passes for 256 yards and one touchdown. Mohamed Salah Jersey . General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful. http://www.liverpoolgear.us/Authentic-Virgil-Van-Dijk-Liverpool-Jersey/ . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate). MIAMI -- Entering Thursday night, the Philadelphia Phillies were 1-40 when trailing after eight innings. Make that 2-40 now. Tony Gwynn Jr. led off the ninth with a walk against Miami closer Steve Cishek and later scored, Ben Revere added the go-ahead run when Miami second baseman Donovan Solano bobbled a potential double-play grounder and the Phillies rallied past the Marlins 5-4 Thursday night to snap a six-game losing streak. "We basically took what they gave us," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "As they gave us bases our guys were alert and had the speed on the bases to get into scoring position and then it was just balls in play and avoiding strikeouts and making something happen." Revere had two hits for the Phillies, who won for the third time in 13 games. It was Reveres sixth multi-hit game in his last eight outings. It was back-and-forth all night, the last swing going Philadelphias way: The Marlins led 2-0, the Phillies went up 3-2 and the Marlins scored two in the eighth, grabbing a 4-3 lead on Jeff Bakers pinch-hit triple. But in the ninth, Cishek gave the Phillies a chance, and they took advantage. "I just made things more difficult than they needed to be," said Cishek, who was 18 for 19 in save chances entering Thursday. "And the end result kind of showed right there." Gwynn went to third on a single by Revere and wound up scoring the tying run on a grounder by Jimmy Rollins. Chase Utley then hit another grounder to Solano, who only had the play at first and allowed Revere to score easily. Marlins manager Mike Redmond didnt speculate about what Solanos bobble meant, saying the innings biggest mistake was the free pass Cishek (4-4) issued to Gwynn. "He walked the leadoff guy," Redmond said. "So after that, I dont think it matters." Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon got his 19th ssave in 21 chances. Dominic Solanke Liverpool Jersey. . Jake Diekman (3-2) got the win despite a shaky eighth, giving up two runs and costing Philadelphia the lead. "Good thing is we didnt get swept, we were able to get a win," Gwynn said. "Hopefully it will propel us into some more. Getting swept is a bad feeling and then having to get on a plane after that is even worse." Marcell Ozuna had three hits and scored twice for Miami, and Christian Yelich also had a two-hit night for the Marlins. Casey McGehee extended his hit streak to 10 for Miami, reaching base for the 27th straight game. Cameron Rupp had a two-run, two-out, full-count double off Miami reliever Chris Hatcher to highlight Philadelphias three-run sixth. Rupp was batting .125 before his opposite-field hit sailed over Giancarlo Stantons head and off the right-field wall. Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick gave up six hits and struck out four in seven innings, leaving with a 3-2 lead. Marlins starter Brad Hand gave up three singles to open the sixth and was chased after 99 pitches, the fourth-most of his career. Hands sacrifice bunt -- his first RBI in nearly three years -- allowed Ozuna to score Miamis first run in the second. Ozuna singled and scored again in the fifth, Yelich driving him in that time for a 2-0 Miami lead. NOTES: Through two innings, Hand had thrown 47 pitches, Kendrick 20. ... The Phillies lead the season series 7-6. ... Nathan Eovaldi (5-3, 3.71) starts for Miami at St. Louis on Friday against Lance Lynn (8-6, 3.3Cool. The Phillies will send Roberto Hernandez (3-7, 4.26) to the mound in Pittsburgh against Gerrit Cole (6-4, 4.02). ... Both teams have played 85 games this season. The Marlins were 32-53 at this point in 2013, the Phillies were 41-45. ... The wife of Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler gave birth to a daughter Thursday, Redmond said.
