Go down if contact sufficient – Sam

first_img With both Chelsea and Sunderland profiting from controversial penalty decisions against the Hammers in recent weeks, Allardyce believes going to ground when caught by the opposition may be the only way to bring a foul to the attention of the officials. “As long as it’s not simulation – as long as you get the right decision from it,” he said when asked if a player needed to fall over to get a foul. “If you’re not touched and you go down because you’re not touched, that’s not the way forward. But if you can’t get what you ordinarily should get, then you’ve got to consider the fact that if you make a meal of it, you make a meal of it because the contact is sufficient enough. “The contact on Amalfitano was sufficient enough to put him off getting the ball cleanly in that position to try to help us score a goal. It impeded him from getting a better contact on the ball. “Like I said, that’s where a penalty should be given and if that’s the case then it would be much better across the board. “As difficult as it is for referees, those are the decisions that they should be capable of giving. All the other infringements are here and there, if you like, but then when it comes to major decisions, it’s how the goal is judged and how the referee is judged. “A very good game from a referee can’t evolve being 99 per cent great and then the one per cent being one major decision he’s got wrong, because then he’s had a bad game – like a goalkeeper can be brilliant and then all of a sudden he drops one ball and it gets put in the net and he’s had it. “Unfortunately the referees are not brave enough to give those penalties because, in the surroundings and the atmosphere in the stadiums, it doesn’t look like one, but their job is to identify if it is or not.” The Hammers boss was left irked by referee Neil Swarbrick during Sunday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat to Arsenal at Upton Park after the Gunners were awarded a penalty and the hosts were denied a late spot-kick. Winston Reid was adjudged to have felled Santi Cazorla in the box, with Swarbrick pointing to the spot as the Spaniard went to ground under the challenge, but – with West Ham chasing a stoppage-time equaliser – Morgan Amalfitano decided to stay on his feet when challenged by Kieran Gibbs. West Ham welcome managerless West Brom to Upton Park on New Year’s Day looking to halt a run of two defeats over the festive period, albeit to Chelsea and Arsenal, with Allardyce having an almost-full squad to select from for the visit of the Baggies. James Tomkins is suspended and Mauro Zarate will play no part as a loan move across London to QPR edges closer. Fellow summer recruit Enner Valencia is likely to be involved and the Ecuador striker is hoping to start 2015 with his first goal in front of the West Ham fans to extend the club’s fine start to the season. “I’m working hard and I want to score a goal at home as soon as possible to thank all the fans for supporting me and making me feel welcome,” the 25-year-old told the club’s official website. “I’m doing all I can to make sure West Ham stay near the top of the Premier League. We’ve suffered two painful losses recently and we’ve dropped down the table slightly. “We know the game against West Brom is a very important one and we’ll do our best to get the three points. We want to get 2015 started on the right foot and have a good rest of the season. I know that if I perform well I can help West Ham stay in the upper reaches of the table, so that is my main aim for next year.” Press Association Sam Allardyce would not prevent his players from “making a meal” out of contact if it meant his West Ham side were given the decisions they deserved.last_img read more

A first look at Raiders depth chart midway through camp

first_imgNAPA — It’s impossible to know who actually put together the first depth chart for the Raiders. Former coach Jack Del Rio used to say it was media relations director Will Kiss.That was Del Rio’s way of not reading too much importance into where players stand heading in to the first preseason game. Jon Gruden hasn’t given many clues as to where the depth chart stands, and even if he did, would you believe him?But for what it’s worth, the initial Raiders depth chart released in advance of the …last_img read more

Boks beat USA, top RWC Pool A

first_img1 October 2007South Africa completed an unbeaten run through Pool A at the Rugby World Cup on Sunday when they outplayed the feisty United States Eagles 64-15, running in nine tries to two.Thanks to Fiji’s shocking 38-34 victory over Wales on Saturday, the Boks will tackle their third Pacific Island opponent of the tournament in the quarterfinals in Marseille on 7 October. Victory at a priceWhile the Springboks scored an expected win, it came at a price as tighthead prop BJ Botha damaged knee ligaments, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament.SA captain John Smit, a teammate of Botha’s with the Sharks, felt the loss of the tighthead would have a disruptive effect on South Africa, coming as it did some way into the tournament. He paid tribute to Botha, saying he not only makes an impact in the tight phases, but also in his work around the field.Cheetahs’ front-rower Jannie du Plessis has been called up to replace Botha and will join his brother, Bismarck, in the Bok squad.The Americans fought hard against South Africa and the Boks led the match only 24-10 at halftime. However, their advantage in possession and territory truly bore fruit in the second half as Smit and co managed a further 40 points whilst conceding only five.The 49-point margin of defeat was the biggest loss yet suffered by the USA at any Rugby World Cup.In controlSouth Africa took control from the kick off and never looked in danger of losing the contest despite a wholehearted effort from the plucky American team that included three South African-born players. It certainly wasn’t a top class performance, but it was very effective and included some superb tries.Interestingly, Argentina also won on Sunday, outplaying Ireland 30-15 to finish top of Pool D. The Pumas produced a very efficient and powerful performance to join New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa as pool winners, thus increasing the likelihood of a first ever all-southern hemisphere semi-final line-up.While South Africa plays the Fijians, Argentina tackles Scotland, New Zealand plays France, and Australia goes up against England. The most likely outcomes of those matches, based on the form shown so far by the eight teams, is victories all round for the southern hemisphere.And after that? Well, then, matters become more interesting.First tryIn Montpellier, it took South Africa nine minutes to get on the board. The Springboks’ first points came from a try by Schalk Burger and the star flanker needed to show good hands to score the five-pointer.After SA had made decent ground and swept into the Americans’ 22-metre area, the ball was moved to the right. A poor pass went to ground before it reached its intended recipient but Burger, flying through at speed, scooped it up beautifully before crashing through two attempted tackles to score.The reliable Percy Montgomery added the extras to put South Africa into a 7-0 lead.SA continued to exert pressure on the USA, especially in the lineouts where the USA was having massive problems, with the Boks either robbing the opposition or disrupting their throw-ins.Double figure leadAfter 17 minutes, the pressure told once more as Montgomery landed a penalty to put South Africa’s lead into double figures at 10-0.Three minutes later, however, US captain Mike Hercus closed the gap to seven points by landing a penalty.After 23 minutes the Americans were reduced to 14 men when flank Todd Clever was sent off for a third professional foul as he fought to stem the attacking Bok tide.While he was off, the Eagles were made to pay for his indiscretion as SA scored through Francois Steyn. Wikus van Heerden won a turnover inside the American 22-metre area and the ball was quickly passed to the backline. Steyn, receiving the ball, jinked inside twice before straightening up and zipping through to dot down next to the uprights.Montgomery added the conversion to put South Africa 17-3 ahead.Habana scoresWith five minutes left in the half, Bryan Habana scored wide on the left after the Springboks moved the ball smartly down the backline from a lineout.The conversion attempt went wide.Then, with South Africa pushing for a bonus point try just before the break, and with men lined up to take the pass, Clever, back on the field after his time in the sin bin, intercepted and raced up the field.The ball was moved to the inside before a long pass out to the right found Zimbabwean-born winger Takudzwa Ngwenya. He had space to move in, both to the right and the left. Habana showed him the outside gap and Ngwenya, after slowing the Bok winger up with some nifty footwork, accelerated to the outside to round Habana and score under the posts.Hercus knocked over the conversion to give the Americans a timely boost just before halftime.Second halfShortly after the restart, Habana became South Africa’s second leading try scorer of all time behind Joost van der Westhuizen when he rounded off another flowing backline move in the left-hand corner.Again, Montgomery missed with his conversion attempt from the left touchline, leaving the Springboks 29-10 ahead.Francois Steyn then had a long-range shot at goal from just inside his own half. His effort had more than enough distance on it, but was slightly wide.Ten minutes into the second stanza, Juan Smith made some hard yards before popping the ball into the hands of the charging CJ van der Linde. Showing a nice turn of speed, the huge prop carried two men over with him as he crashed over the tryline.This time Montgomery’s conversion was accurate, opening up the gap between the two teams to 26 points at 36-10.Try concededShortly afterwards, after the Americans had found touch deep in the South African 22-metre area, scrumhalf Fourie du Preez took a quick throw-in to Francois Steyn. The centre tried to lift his arms above an attempted tackle, but caught his elbow on the tackler’s head and coughed the ball up.The Eagles first went right, then moved the ball down the backline, to the left, where Chris Wyles powered through two tackles to score.Hercus was wide right with his conversion attempt. South Africa led 36-15.Du Preez was next on the scoreboard for South Africa, selling a dummy and then accelerating through a huge hole that opened up for him to score right next to the posts.The conversion presented no problems for Montgomery and South Africa moved up to 43 points, the same number they scored against the Americans in the last meeting between the two teams in 2001.Slick backline moveJust past the hour mark, a slick backline move that involved Butch James and JP Pietersen (on for Habana who had gone off with a cut to his face) opened up space on the right. The Americans raced across to cover the pass out wide, but Jaque Fourie summed the situation up perfectly and sold a dummy before cruising through for a try.Montgomery added another conversion to take South Africa past the 50-point mark.Fourie then equalled Habana’s brace of tries when he broke through for the Springboks’ eighth try after 73 minutes.With Montgomery having been substituted as the entire South African bench was given a run, James took over the kicking duties and kicked the conversion to put SA 57-15 ahead.Top of the listFinally, with three minutes remaining, a nice interchange of passing between Pietersen and Ruan Pienaar set Smith up for a well deserved try. The flanker dotted down for the third time in the tournament, lifting him into a tie at the top of the list for try scorers amongst forwards.James’ conversion sealed a 64-15 win that the Boks had to work hard for despite the 49-point gap between the two sides.Springbok coach Jake White declared himself “very pleased” with the win, saying the players achieved what they had set out to do, maintaining a sound structure and decent continuity in their game.He added that Boks will go into their quarterfinal clash against Fiji with confidence after winning all four of their pool matches.

The digital Olympians

first_imgI ran for my life (okay mashed buttons) but my best efforts could fetch me only the bronze medal. London 2012, the official video game of the Olympic Games, provides mere mortals a chance at greatness. The game, by Sega, lets players compete in more than 35 events from over a dozen Olympic sports. It functions best when competing against human opponents – particularly as a party game when one pits one’s skills against friends. But in single-player mode, it tends to get repetitive. And finishing one Olympic campaign can be so overwhelming that you tend not to start on another campaign right away. The commentary is irritating, to say the least.To be fair to the game, it does a brilliant job of the locations and makes full use of the advanced graphics on new PCs. Also, it cuts down on the button mashing, replacing buttons with analogue sticks for control – and it’s a pleasure using them. Playing on a motion-sensing console such as the Xbox with Kinect or the PS3 with Move could be an even more pleasurable experience. If one wants to get into the Olympic spirit, look no further.Keep track of medals from your phoneThe London Olympics are just a few days away and its no better time to get the real dope on the Games.Install the free London 2012: Official Join In App on your BlackBerry, and you’ll know what to do when you have hours to kill between business meetings.

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Klopp admits Liverpool unlikely to break Man City recordby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp thinks it is unlikely Liverpool will break Manchester City’s record for most consecutive Premier League wins.The Reds made 16 with the win over Sheffield United on Saturday, two shy of City’s record of 18.Asked about the possibility of winning 18 straight games, he said: “(There are) interesting games coming up. It doesn’t sound too likely. But we will try and first and foremost Salzburg and then Leicester.”Then it is the international break and hopefully everybody comes back healthy. That is most important.Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will play against each other in Singapore, very interesting game obviously, it’s not qualification for anything. So hopefully everyone comes back healthy and then we try to prepare for Man United.”He added: “I try to understand how other people think about things but from the way I think about things I’m not interested in the number to be honest. It’s just a number.”So, you only can create a streak like this if you’re always in the next job. The next job is Salzburg which is a different competition and then Leicester City and that will be difficult.” last_img read more
