Allardyce keen to keep Carroll

first_img Carroll joined the Hammers from Liverpool on a one-year loan deal last August after struggling to establish himself at Anfield following his club-record £35million switch from Newcastle in January 2011. The 24-year-old has been hampered by injury during his time at Upton Park but, since returning to fitness, he has hit form over the last few months. And Allardyce has also seen enough to want Carroll back at West Ham next season, believing the powerful hitman can develop into a “very good player” at the club. “He has shown everybody what he can do and he has massive potential to grow into a very good player if he ends up back here with us,” Allardyce told reporters. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed he is keen to retain the services of on-loan Liverpool striker Andy Carroll and hopes a deal can be finalised as soon as possible. “He’s so willing to learn and become better that I think we could do well for each other, but there is a way to go before that might get sorted. “It’s about negotiation and both parties have to be happy that the negotiation cannot go any farther and it’s a ‘yes’ or ‘no’. We hope it’s a ‘yes’ and we hope it is as quickly as possible.” He added: “I think that my reflection of Andy is exactly what I said from the start – as soon as we get him match-fit, the sooner you will see the goals. “That match-fitness never came until his run after his second injury and I’m still wondering what he might have done this year had we got him off that one minute before he did his hamstring in his first game (against Fulham).” Allardyce also confirmed the club will not be extending on-loan defender Emanuel Pogatetz’s stay at Upton Park. Austria international Pogatetz joined from German side Wolfsburg during January’s transfer window on a loan deal until the end of the season. Pogatetz has made only a handful of appearances with the Hammers though, mainly as a substitute, and Allardyce has decided he will not be looking to retain the 30-year-old. Allardyce said, according to the London club’s Twitter account: “We’ve already said to Pogatetz thanks very much, he’s been a fantastic professional but it won’t be extended, and we’ll decide on the others after the game.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Angels lose to Giants to fall to worst 25-game start in franchise history

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter They are definitely not right now. They have lost two of three to a Giants team that was also playing poorly before the teams met for a four-game, home-and-home series, which concludes Thursday.Sandoval, who had shown flashes of his potential so far this season, did not have it on Wednesday night.“I just didn’t really have any feel for my changeup or slider today,” Sandoval said. “That left one pitch isolated. Then when I did finally throw a changeup in the zone, it gets hit pretty hard.”In the third, Sandoval gave up a two-out, three-run homer to Wilmer Flores on a changeup over the inner-half of the plate. An inning later, he left a changeup over the middle and Austin Slater drilled it over the left-field fence, putting the Angels in a 5-0 hole.While Sandoval spotted the Giants a five-run lead, the Angels were doing little with veteran Johnny Cueto. The crafty right-hander threw plenty of off-speed pitches and kept the Angels off balance with a variety of timing gimmicks in his delivery.Through five innings, the Angels had no runs and just two hits, both by David Fletcher.In the sixth, they had a shot at making it a game.Tommy La Stella and Anthony Rendon each doubled, producing a run. Rendon had hurt his wrist on a diving play at third earlier in the game, but he remained in and told Maddon afterward that he’s fine.Albert Pujols then drove in a run with a single. It was the 2,086th RBI for Pujols, which tied Alex Rodriguez for second all-time since the stat became official in 1920.After Pujols’ hit, Jason Castro drew a walk to load the bases for Upton.Upton, however, swung through a high 94 mph fastball from lefty Caleb Baragar, leaving the bases loaded.Upton is now hitting .094.That was the Angels’ best shot, as they did not get a runner into scoring position over the final three innings, taking a loss in the first game of a nine-game trip that will cross the mid-point of the season.The Angels are now nine games out of first place and 4 1/2 games out of a playoff spot. Maddon said they still have time, mathematically, to get into the postseason.“You got to just come back out and keep pounding on the door,” he said. “They’re big boys. We’ve been through these things before. They just got to see consistency from me. That’s how I look at moments like this and that’s what they’re seeing. I mean it’s not (time to get) emotional, get angry. It’s not like people don’t care. Our starting pitching, our pitching in general, we just have to be more stingy overall.”Related Articles Patrick Sandoval had a rough start, allowing five runs on a pair of homers and put the Angels in a 5-0 hole in the fourth inning.They had a shot to make it interesting, but slumping Justin Upton struck out with the bases loaded in the sixth in a 5-2 game. Upton now has one hit in his last 38 at-bats.Upton is certainly at the top of the list among the struggling Angels, but he’s not alone.“Believe me, the work’s being put in, the guys care, all that stuff is in order,” Maddon said. “We just have to become more consistent at the game of baseball right now and there’s no easy solutions. There’s no tremendous speech to be made or extra work to be done.“We have to go out there and execute and play it right. You’ve got to be able to catch that wave. You’ve got to look for that wave and catch it, but we have to be playing good baseball to do that.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros As the Angels sink deeper and deeper with each loss, Joe Maddon repeats the same message over and over about how they can possibly get out of this hole.It’s all about the pitching.After the Angels’ 7-2 loss to the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday dropped the Angels to 8-17 — the worst 25-game start in franchise history — Maddon boiled it down to the simplest element.PreviousLos Angeles Angels’ Albert Pujols takes batting practice before a baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and the Angels in San Francisco, Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020.
