Myhill braced for Foster return

first_img When that time does come, Myhill, although happy with the form he has been showing, knows there is every chance he might be dropped, with Foster going straight back into the side. Speaking ahead of West Brom’s Monday night league clash at home against midlands rivals Aston Villa – the club at which the 31-year-old began his career – Myhill said: “Ben has proved himself to be a top keeper all the time he’s been here and I have no illusions – I’ll be up against it. “Your best is always good enough as a player, and if the manager chooses Ben that’s his decision. I just want to do as well as I can while he’s not fit.” Asked if he felt capable of keeping a fit Foster out, Wales international Myhill said: “You’d have to ask the manager that, I don’t pick the team. “I’d like to play in the team, I’m trying my best at the minute and I think everybody’s happy with the way I’m playing. “The manager is paid to pick the team. He’s doing a good job of it and we’ll just keep fighting to get in the team all over the pitch.” Clarke has given little away on the matter, describing Myhill as a “joint number one”. Clarke said: “It’s been great for me, great for the club and great for Boaz because he’s waited a long time to get in the team. Boaz Myhill has emphasised he is under no illusions about the battle he will face for first-team football when his fellow West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster returns to fitness. “The job of number two goalkeeper at any club is a difficult one but he’s proved this season that he’s more than a number two, he’s a joint number one – when he’s had to come in and do the job for us he’s been great. “To lose Ben Foster when we lost him at the start of the season could have been very difficult for the club and for the team going forward. “But we knew we had another international goalkeeper who could come in and do the job and the way the team has defended tells you the back four are comfortable with Boaz and he is comfortable with them. “It’s been an almost seamless transition.” Myhill has played in Albion’s last nine Barclays Premier League games after Foster, who has been the club’s established number one, sustained a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot in a 0-0 draw at Everton on August 24. Foster was initially ruled out for 12 weeks, and while he has returned to light training, Baggies boss Steve Clarke on Friday refused to give a timescale in terms of when the England international might be available for first-team selection again.

Bigger than we think

first_imgWe aren’t important enough or hip enough to be otherwise. We don’t have enough money. There aren’t enough of us. We are a Los Angeles/ We bring our inferiority complexes with us. East on the 10, the 60, the 91, the 210. To our homes in Chino, Colton, Redlands, Victorville. We already “know” it: The Inland Empire is minor league. Orange County afterthought. Even as development explodes, population soars and our demographics trend steadily upward. We not only don’t mind not having major-league sports, we don’t even expect them. Never mind that the combined population of San Bernardino and Riverside counties is about 4 million while our aggregate income approaches $90 billion. It’s time to think big. And bigger. A significant step toward a collective shout of “I am somebody!” occurred this week, when the city of Ontario broke ground on a $130 million arena, to near-universal acclaim. center_img It is a first for a stunningly under-served region: A glittering indoor venue that can play host to professional basketball and hockey, not to mention concerts and family shows of all sorts. Exactly the sort of thing no one in the IE had the vision or will to make happen, until Ontario did. But it isn’t as if we’re building Staples Center here. Or even the Honda Arena. Ontario’s arena will seat about 10,000 for professional sports. And those sports will, in fact, be minor league. Perhaps the ECHL of hockey. The NBA Development League. Maybe some lower-level incarnation of arena football. The indoor equivalents of baseball’s California League, which has four franchises in the IE. That’s cool, for now, because we’re starting from Ground Zero. Can’t even be minor league in indoor sports when you’ve never had an indoor for them to play in. But down the line, we need to act and think like a big market – because we are. A market bigger than Tampa-St. Petersburg (2.5million people). Richer than Kansas City ($77.4billion), Milwaukee ($75.7) and Buffalo ($41.4). All those are “major league” cities. With all the mental, emotional and financial boosts that go along with that designation. The population and income figures cited here come from a study done a year ago by G.Scott Thomas of bizjournals.com. A study that shucked traditional thinking about what is major league (Buffalo) and what is not (us) and looked purely at population and purchasing power – two statistics in which we are big and getting bigger. Tim Lieweke, president of AEG, owners of Staples Center and the Los Angeles Kings, agreed the Inland Empire already has many of the hallmarks of “big league.” “Could this area have its own NBA or NHL team in the future?” he asked himself during a conversation at the Ontario arena ground-breaking. “Yes. But it’s going to take some years to develop the area. Maybe 10 years?” That’s a lot shorter than “never” – which is how most of us think. People who look at these numbers unemotionally see an area prepared to support any sort of franchise. Including Major League Baseball, the most capital-intensive of all sports, requiring a collective income of $89.2billion, by bizjournals.com analysis – which is almost exactly what the IE generates now. Admittedly, the IE is hurt by not existing in a vacuum. Buffered by 100 miles of emptiness. We remain part of the L.A. media market, damaging a team’s ability to develop its own electronic advertising streams. We also will have to go to war with the Dodgers and Angels if we want a ball team, the Lakers and Clippers if we think “NBA,” the Ducks and Kings, on the NHL front. Curiously, perhaps our best chance at a local big-league team might be the National Football League. No current NFL team in L.A. or Orange County to object. How big would the Raiders be, in the IE? The 49ers? Even the Chargers? Think we could fill a stadium 10 times a year for the NFL? All we need is a stadium. (Oh, if only Fontana had built a football stadium instead of an under-used race track!) So far, Ontario seems to be the only IE city thinking big. Greg Devereaux, city manager, has talked of the possibility that a second 20,000-capacity arena could be built on the parking lot of the coming Citizens Business Bank Arena, with a multi-level parking structure constructed to house the extra vehicles. Maybe 10 years from now – the period of time Lieweke suggested – it will make sense. Maybe the Clippers will be ready to leave Staples. Or any number of NHL franchises will be eager to get into the Sun Belt. What can we do? For starters, stop talking ourselves down. Our leaders need to make sure others understand the collective economic clout of this region. And our citizens – you and me – need to stop thinking of ourselves as L.A. refugees good only as seat-warmers for L.A.’s teams. It could happen. Major league teams in a major league market. This one. Think of Ontario’s arena as Step 1 on the journey.
