Sullivan rues Carroll absence

first_img “Had we known he would be out for this long, we would not have signed him,” Sullivan told the BBC’s Football Focus. “We are not a rich enough club to deal with that. You know any player can get injured, but we can’t buy a player knowing he is going to be out for half the season. “When we signed him we were assured by the medical staff that the very, very latest he would be back was September 1. That would have meant he would only miss two league games.” Sullivan retains hope Carroll will prove his worth for the club, though, saying: “If you ask me the same question at the end of the season, I hope I will be able give you a different answer and say ‘Yes, it was the right decision to sign Andy Carroll’. “He is a fantastic player and on his day he is unplayable. We love him and that is why we signed him. He is desperate to come back; he is sweating blood in training.” Sullivan acknowledged he was worried about the depths the Hammers have sunk to in Carroll’s absence – Allardyce’s team headed into Saturday’s game against Sunderland outside the relegation zone only on goal difference. “I am deeply concerned,” he said. “Anybody who looks at where we are in the table and is not concerned are kidding themselves.” However, he maintains confidence in Allardyce. “I really believe Sam is the man for the job,” he said. “If he wasn’t our manager he is exactly the type of manager you would be bringing in to be the manager. Where do you get someone better than Sam to do the job that is now necessary? “If you asked me what kind of season Sam has had up to now, I would say ‘disappointing’. But let’s judge him at the end of the season. “I think the Newcastle manager would have been sacked by most fans after a month of the season but now he is flavour of the month.” West Ham would not have splashed out £15million on Andy Carroll had they known the England striker would spend so long out injured, Hammers co-owner David Sullivan has admitted. Carroll has not played for the London club since his move from Liverpool was made permanent in the summer, with Sam Allardyce’s side managing just 13 goals in 15 Barclays Premier League games in his absence. The 24-year-old has spent much of his rehabilitation receiving treatment in Belgium and Holland but is still at least three weeks away from returning from a double fracture in his right foot, which was sustained as he battled back from a heel problem.

Steel Sensations….3-2 And Going Nowhere

first_imgBen Roethlisberger (7) and head coach Mike Tomlin chat on the sideline prior to an NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack)Sure, the Steelers beat Jacksonville on Sunday afternoon and improved to 3-2 on the season but were any of you impressed? Do any of you trust that this team has what it takes to win enough games to be in the playoff mix?  I sure don’t.Something has to change.I’ve seen nothing out of these guys thus far. Sure, they had a great first half against the Browns and a great second half vs. the Panthers but that’s about it.There are several guys I trust individually, Big Ben, Leveon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Troy Polamalu and Lawrence Timmons for example. However, I do not trust the team collectively.  They don’t seem to have the right chemistry. They don’t make the right plays, they look lost, confused and overwhelmed. They could very easily be 1-4 right now.Something has to change.The play calling hasn’t been effective enough. Why isn’t LeVeon Bell carrying the ball more than 15 times, as he did in Jacksonville? He needs it at least 20 times a game, if not more. Why isn’t that happening? The deep ball needs to be thrown more often to the explosive Antonio Brown; why isn’t that called often enough?  Heath Miller should be more of a focal point on offense, where are the plays specific to him?The team has a top 10 quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end, as mentioned above yet they struggle to move the chains.Something has to change.The defense isn’t good, period. Yes, they came up with a couple of turnovers and scored vs. Jacksonville but they were playing Jacksonville so very little credit will be given from me for doing what every other team in the league does. When it was 10-9 did you ever trust that the defense was going to get it done? I didn’t. Yes, they did get it done as it turns out but I still don’t trust them.Something has to change.The penalties were still plentiful, another seven for 50 yards. Sure, that’s an improvement, but I’d ask you if you think that’s good? It’s not, it’s simply not. It’s unacceptable and it will ruin any goals this team has if they don’t get things in order.With 11 games to go, there is plenty of time to turn things around but do you trust the coaching staff? At this juncture, I certainly don’t. They’ve proven they don’t make in game adjustments and it’s hard to say they even make in week adjustments.  There doesn’t appear to be any upside to what these guys can bring.They play the Browns this week, on the road, a game we’d all normally chalk up as a ‘W’. Can you really say that now?Something has to change….Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest Cancel Fire Restrictions

first_imgSubmitted by The Olympic National Park Due to notable widespread rain with resulting decrease in fire danger, Olympic National Park and Forest have lifted all fire restrictions as of September 09, 2015.  The restrictions included a ban on campfires outside of developed areas as well as some campgrounds.  Fire restrictions are typically lifted when a significant amount of precipitation is recorded in local weather stations and the fire danger has decreased dramatically.   Rainfall amounts on the west side of the Olympic Peninsula have reached 11 to 12 inches since the end of August, with amounts up to one to two inches on the northeast side.Fire restrictions were implemented on June 25.  This was unusual for the Olympic Peninsula, but was necessary due to a dry winter and impacts of long-term drought across the Park and Forest.  Additional fire restrictions and area closures were implemented by other land management agencies throughout the Olympic Peninsula.  National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service firefighters responded to over 20 fires within the park and forest this summer, ranging from burns of less than ten acres to the 2,800 acre Paradise Fire.Olympic National Park information: www.nps.gov/olym/Olympic National Forest information:www.fs.usda.gov/detail/olympic/alerts-notices/ State and county area burn bans: www.waburnbans.netAbout the National Park Service.
