Allardyce set for Hammers stay

first_img “I always said if I don’t keep them up, I won’t stay. We’re very close to being mathematically okay. I think it’s highly unlikely with four home games in the last six that we’re not going to pick more points up. “We are going to be safe and playing in the Barclays Premier League next season so my planning will be done as quickly as possible and we’ll get on to the contract, which I’m sure I’m going to sign.” While Allardyce expects to stay, the future of his players is not so certain. High-profile Liverpool loanee Carroll has admitted he is unsure as to where he will be next season, while a number of other West Ham players’ deals soon come to an end. “We have Andy and the other loan players – Marouane Chamakh, Emmanuel Pogatetz,” Allardyce said. “We have all the out-of-contract players like Gary O’Neil and Carlton Cole so we’ll sit down as quickly as we can at the end of the season and make decisions like that.” Jussi Jaaskelainen is another whose deal runs out this summer, although an option of a further year with the Hammers is set to be activated. “When I first came here I signed a contract that if we stay up I would stay on so there’s nothing to sign,” the former Bolton goalkeeper said. “I’m happy but we’re obviously not over there yet – staying up. So I don’t really have to do anything about it apart form make sure we stay up. “It was always going to be difficult when you’ve had 14-and-a-half years at one football club and you’re wondering what’s going to happen but I’ve really enjoyed it. Big Sam was the reason why I wanted to come here. When he gave me the phone call straight away I thought it would be fantastic to play with him again because I know what kind of stuff he does with his players.” Press Association Sam Allardyce is sure he will stay on as West Ham manager and is already thinking about the future of players like Andy Carroll.center_img The 58-year-old replaced Avram Grant at the Upton Park helm following the club’s relegation from the top flight in the summer of 2011. Allardyce confounded the critics to take West Ham up at the first attempt via the play-offs and the club now look all but certain to remain in the top flight. The next campaign is already coming into focus and Allardyce expects to extend his contract past the summer to remain at the Upton Park helm. “I wouldn’t be here if we weren’t playing in the Premier League next season,” the former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss said. last_img read more

Hughton keen to keep Hoolahan

first_img Now Hughton has confirmed he wants to keep the seven-cap midfielder and is instead focused on bringing in reinforcements rather than seeing players leave. When asked if Hoolahan could be sold this month, Hughton said: “At the moment our concentration is on can we add to the squad, can we improve the squad, not on letting players go out. “We’ve had a few injuries, especially in midfield, and then Michael Turner will be out for a while as well. “We are trying as hard as we can (to sign players) the same as everybody else, but January is a notoriously bad time to bring in players. “But they also have to be right for the club.” Norwich slumped to a 3-0 FA Cup third-round replay defeat at Fulham on Tuesday, leaking goals from Darren Bent, Ashkan Dejagah and Steve Sidwell. Hughton shrugged off the building pressure in light of the Canaries’ eighth consecutive match without a win. Shouldering responsibility on himself, the former Newcastle boss said this run is not the most testing of his Norwich tenure. Wes Hoolahan will not leave Norwich this month, according to manager Chris Hughton. The 31-year-old Republic of Ireland midfielder was the subject of a bid from Aston Villa, driven by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert. Norwich’s board rejected the offer outright and have since refused to countenance the idea of Hoolahan leaving Carrow Road in the January transfer window. Norwich have already signed Jonas Gutierrez on loan from Newcastle this month, the Argentina winger linking back up with former manager Hughton. The Norwich chief now expects to have Alexander Tettey and Anthony Pilkington fit for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash at home to Hull. “They have now trained this week and are very close to being back in the squad,” said Hughton. “They will be good additions back in, and on top of that we’ll keep working hard to see if we can make any more signings. “Jonas will be a good addition for us – he knows the league very, very well, he’s played nigh on 200 games in this division. “So he’ll be a bonus for us, and we’re working as hard as we can to address other possible additions.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Ozil: I’m one of world’s best

first_img He said: “The whole club can be proud to have such a fantastic manager with so much experience, playing with style and doing so many great things for 18 years here. “The boss has always blooded youngsters, and helped make them into some of the best players in the world. That’s also why I came here. I wanted to develop myself further.” Having got into the habit of lifting trophies this summer, Ozil is keen for more. “Of course Arsenal can win the Premier League,” he said. “We also want to show that we can play better in the Champions League. We have the potential to reach the final.” Mesut Ozil believes criticism of his Arsenal performances stems from high expectations borne out of being “one of the best number 10s in the world”. The Germany international struggled to live up to his £42million transfer fee after joining the Gunners from Real Madrid last season, though he did end the campaign as an FA Cup winner. That Wembley win over Hull was followed by World Cup success with his country this summer but still questions persist over whether he can impose himself in the Barclays Premier League. Ozil, though, told the Daily Telegraph: “The opinions of fans are important to me and I’m happy they have such high expectations of me. I have high expectations of myself. “I’m one of the best players in the world in that number 10 position. Fans, coaches, players and everyone knows that my best position is playmaker. It’s different playing on the left. “When I was in Madrid, I often played on the right. I enjoyed that because I’m left-footed and I was able to cut inside to give assists and get shots on target. On the left, it’s more difficult.” Manager Arsene Wenger defended the 25-year-old on Friday, likening him to a virtuoso musician and suggesting Ozil’s lack of aggression and defensive ability fuels a perception of him as ‘lightweight’. Wenger said: “People are very harsh on Ozil because he’s a player who is easy with his play. “When you watch his game back the next day you think ‘what a player’. Everything he does is intelligent and the timing of absolutely everything he does is absolutely perfect. “He’s like a guy who plays music with perfect timing. There aren’t many players like that.” Ozil is grateful for the Frenchman’s support. Press Associationlast_img read more

His second came after the break when he ventured into the area and fired a low shot that came off defender Sergio Ramos before beating keeper Kiko Casilla.Christian Eriksen then capped a great night for the north London side when he slotted in after good combination work between Alli and Harry Kane on the counter-attack.Alli should have completed his hat-trick, but he inexplicably headed wide Trippier’s cross from six yards out.Cristiano Ronaldo, Real’s big threat, had two strikes well held by Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris, before he fired in from six yards for his ninth goal of the season.The visitors also went close through midfielder Casemiro, who had an effort pushed away by the France goalkeeper, while Ronaldo inadvertently blocked a goalbound strike by his team-mate Ramos.One setback for Tottenham was the apparent hamstring injury suffered by defender Toby Alderweireld in the first half.RESULTSLiverpool 3-0 MariborSevilla 2-1 SpartakNapoli 2-4 Man CityShakhtar 3-1 FeyenoordBesiktas 1-1 MonacoPorto 3-1 LeipzigDortmund 1-1 APOELSpurs 3-1 Real MadridShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Armstead, Johnson could return vs. ND

first_imgFollowing last week’s bye, the No. 6 USC Trojans are on pace to get back two familiar faces on both sides of the ball this week as the team prepares for another tough road game in South Bend, Ind., against No. 25 Notre Dame.Junior receiver Ronald Johnson and sophomore defensive end Armond Armstead made considerable strides in practice Monday that led coach Pete Carroll to believe both will be available come Saturday’s contest.Ready to roll · Junior receiver Ronald Johnson hopes get back on the field Saturday after suffering a broken collarbone before the season. – Tim Tran | Daily TrojanBoth players suffered injuries in late August and were sidelined for roughly six weeks. Armstead returned to practice last week after breaking his left foot Aug. 20 during a morning practice, and Johnson ­— who first began practicing last Tuesday and participated in the Trojans’ weekend scrimmage — is getting more reps every day as he continues to recover from a broken collarbone he suffered during an Aug. 29 preseason scrimmage.“It was great that they practiced,” Carroll said. “Armond got a lot of work [Monday]. I put him in a couple spots, and he made it through feeling good, so that’s terrific. Ronald’s back in there. He’s ready to play.”Carroll said barring an unexpected setback later this week, both players should see be able to jump back on the field in South Bend. However, he wouldn’t comment on how much playing time either player would receive.While it’s possible Armstead could fill a number of spots on a suddenly injury-ridden USC defensive line, Johnson’s role may not be as large as it was before his injury.“Right now I’d be thrilled if he plays a lot,” Carroll said. “That’d be great. I don’t care about starting. That’s not a concern at all. It’s just if we can get him in the game plan, and he can contribute and get him playing football again.”Armstead and Johnson said they’re both ready to get back on the field and help out any way they can for the Trojans.“Whatever the coaches want me to do, I’m comfortable playing [any position],” Armstead said. “I feel like they’ll get me ready by game time.”Johnson admitted the coaches would probably take a “conservative” approach with him this weekend, but it all depends on how he practices the rest of the week. He said he is looking forward to being back on the field again, even if his playing time is limited.“I’m just happy I’m out here,” he said. “I’m just excited to be out here, back again and ready to work hard.”Johnson’s speed also provides freshman quarterback Matt Barkley with a deep-option receiver other than redshirt junior receiver Damian Williams. Johnson was the Trojans’ third-leading receiver last season with 33 catches for 570 yards and eight touchdowns.“I just think I will scare the defense a little bit more,” he said. “They have to play honest as far as the run and the pass. So I feel I bring the deep threat.”Although Johnson will get some time as receiver Saturday, Carroll said the junior will not return kickoffs, as Johnson had done during the past two seasons for USC.“I think we’ll just wait on that one a little bit,” Carroll said. “We’ve got other guys who are doing a nice job back there, and C.J. [Gable]’s a terrific kickoff returner, so we’ll keep that out of [Johnson’s] duties right now.”last_img read more
