Paulo Sergio has tipped former club Hearts to see off Hibernian in the Scottish Cup this weekend while admitting he would jump at the chance to get back into management in Scotland. Puma Rihanna Schoenen . The Portuguese, who guided Hearts to their memorable 5-1 rout of their City rivals at Hampden in May 2012, missed out on a possible return to the Premiership this year but concedes he has a very good feeling about British footballing culture.He told Sky Sports News HQ: Hearts are favourites but as always when you are favourites you have to prove it on the pitch. Hibernian are used to winning games too because they are fighting to get promotion so its a team that is also playing good football.  Sergio enjoys the acclaim of his players - and the supporters - at Hampden Park I believe it is going to be tight, its going to be difficult because Hibs are a team that are playing good football too, so the Hearts team has to be very, very focused and cant relax at any second.Reflecting on the Scottish Cup win over Hibs four years ago, he said: If you remember we were lots of times without getting paid, we sold important players in January. So the tightness and the strength of this group was amazing with young players and older ones helping a lot. For everybody it was a great, great memory. For me too it was the year that we played four times against the rivals in the city and I think its unique too because all four times we beat them. Robbie Neilson says Osman Sow could come back for one final hurrah against Hibs Having seen a job opportunity in Saudi Arabia fall through, Sergio - who left Hearts just three weeks after the Cup success - revealed he let a recent opportunity to return to Scotland slip through his fingers. Sergio admits he loved the atmosphere and respect he enjoyed across Scotland I had a phone call from a Scottish club this year but in the end it was my fault, he said. The chairman was waiting to speak with me on Skype but I had people in my house and after this I didnt speak with the chairman but I would love to have a chance to return to the UK for sure.I love the atmosphere of singing, people supporting the players. I always respect everybody so I always felt respected in Edinburgh and when I came here to Hampden, Ibrox or to Celtic Park to see games. So I have a very good feeling about football here and I would love to get the chance to do my work, my career here in the UK.Watch Hearts v Hibernian in the Scottish Cup, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 12pm on Sunday.

R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Puma Suede Heart Satin . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference is showing a lot of new offensive looks.The changes start with the four teams that hired new coaching staffs. Next, Boston College, North Carolina State and Pittsburgh hired new offensive coordinators, while Louisville added a co-coordinator behind play-calling head coach Bobby Petrino. Finally, rivals Duke and North Carolina promoted coordinators to add their own touches to their same schemes from a year ago.In all, those 10 teams averaged 39.2 points and 445.2 yards in their openers, many coming against overmatched opponents. And five of the 10 racked up more than 520 total yards, the start of a season-long effort to build those attacks.Its just play to your strengths, said new Wolfpack offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz, who was at Boise State last year. Dont get caught up in, `Weve got to do this and weve got to do that. Youve got to play to your strengths and make sure your offense is still moving in the right direction.All the coaching turnover is making things tougher on defensive coaches, too.UNC second-year defensive coordinator Gene Chizik opened against a new staff at Georgia, faces another one this week at Illinois, then plays six of eight ACC games against teams with new head coaches or offensive coordinators.It does make it difficult, because youre looking, really, at a compilation of a lot of things -- a lot of years, a lot of teams theyve been on previously, Chizik said. Youre using your best, educated guess. You dont ever really know until you get in the game and you see exactly whats happening. So that really makes it hard in your first couple of games, for sure.Miami, Syracuse, Virginia and Virginia Tech made the biggest moves by bringing in new coaching staffs. Hurricanes head coach Mark Richt is calling plays for the first time in a decade for an offense that otherwise will look much like last year behind veteran quarterback Brad Kaaya.The changes are much more pronounced for the Orange, Cavaliers and Hokies.New Orange coach Dino Babers is known for strong offenses from his time as a Baylor assistant, and as a head coach at Eastern Illinois and Bowling Green. His Syracuse team is incorporating some of Baylors up-tempo spread with pro-style principles afterr using a spread option, and had 554 yards in the opener against Colgate. Puma Suede Heart Satin - Dames Schoenen. he Cavaliers ran a deliberate, pro-style offense under Mike London but are speeding up tempo under former BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall and coordinator Robert Anae.The Hokies, similarly, were a huddle and run-first attack under Frank Beamer. Theyre now trying to push the pace under former Memphis coach Justin Fuente and coordinator Brad Cornelsen, using 10 players to run the ball in the opener against Liberty to keep players fresh amid the faster tempo.Coach Fuentes told us that hes going to give a bunch of guys the ball and a bunch of guys a chance to carry the ball, running back Sam Rogers said. I dont really know how theyre going to call the game. Thats up to them. Weve just got to run the play and execute it but we know that a lot of people have chances in this offense, which makes it a lot of fun.At N.C. State, head coach Dave Doeren turned to Drinkwitz to install a control-the-tempo attack to spark an offense that looked stagnant at times last season. The Wolfpack opened this year with 521 yards and 48 points against William & Mary.The changes elsewhere are more subtle.The man Drinkwitz replaced with the Wolfpack, Matt Canada, is now at Pittsburgh to run an attack still built around a powerful running game. The Panthers managed just 261 yards in their opening win against Villanova, though coach Pat Narduzzi said he thought it was more of a case of first-game jitters.The may have been the case and many of the new offenses are still taking shape. But that doesnt mean teams are slowing implementing the changes.Were not trying to take baby steps, Drinkwitz said. Were pushing this thing full speed. Thats what were doing. Were not easing our way into the water.---AP Sports Writers Gary B.
