Slaven Bilic targets upturn in West Ham’s home fortunes

first_img “We don’t say ‘away we are going to play like this, and at home we are going to play like this’,” he said. “But sometimes you have to change. “We will try to win our home games and maintain our away form, but it’s more that we started sloppily in a couple of home games. “At home sometimes we are playing like it’s basketball and you have a limit of 24 seconds to finish your move, and you are forcing the situation too early. “Away we are a little bit more patient, but at home not patient enough.” West Ham certainly had to show some patience at Selhurst Park, with Palace holding out until the 88th minute with 10 men. Carl Jenkinson’s opener had been quickly cancelled out by Yohan Cabaye’s twice-taken penalty but the game turned on Dwight Gayle’s dismissal, for two reckless challenges, on the stroke of half-time. The Hammers finally broke Palace’s resistance when Manuel Lanzini lashed in Andy Carroll’s knock-down with two minutes remaining, and Dimitri Payet added the gloss in stoppage time. Bilic’s side are now up to the heady heights of fourth but the Croatian is still playing down what they can achieve this season. The Hammers have picked up just one win at Upton Park this season but made it four on the road on Saturday when they added Crystal Palace to the scalps of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. They host Chelsea next weekend with boss Bilic urging his side to show the same patience they do away from home, rather than play as if they have a time limit in which to shoot. Press Association Slaven Bilic has told West Ham to stop treating home games like basketball matches. “At the club we have no expectations,” he added. “You can’t stop the fans’ (expectations) – unless you start losing, and that is not what we want. “But our target is to stay in the league. It’s early days, not late May. Our target is to play good football, to be solid, defend and attack with numbers and keep the ball, score more goals and get more points. Where we will finish, I don’t know! But it should be good.” Defeat was harsh on Palace but manager Alan Pardew tried to look on the bright side. “The resilience we showed in the second half, down to 10 men, was a good sign,” he said. “At some point it will happen to us – a team will go down to 10 men and we will have to exploit it like West Ham did to us.” last_img read more

USC gears up for tilts with LMU, Pacific

first_imgA battle to the bitter end last Saturday saw the then-No.1 USC men’s water polo team claw its way back from deficit several times against then-No. 3 Stanford. After ultimately falling to the Cardinal by one goal, however, the Trojans (16-3) will look to pick themselves back up once more when they face Loyola Marymount (5-12) today and Pacific (12-7) this Saturday.King of wings · Redshirt senior driver Rex Butler had four goals in the Trojans’ loss to Stanford last week and will look to lead USC past – Mariya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanThe Trojans suffered their third loss of the year and first loss in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference play after a goal in the closing stages gave the Cardinal an 11-10 victory. USC has now lost to all three of the other “Big Four” teams in men’s water polo — Stanford, Cal and UCLA — but with all three losses coming by margins of two goals or less, head coach Jovan Vavic believes his team can only go up from here.“When you look at the way we played defensively [against Stanford], and that we only lost by one, I think there’s lots of positives,” Vavic said. “I think overall it’s not really a terrible loss. Considering this is the first time we played [the Cardinal], we played them in their own pool and they’re a very experienced team — they haven’t really lost much, and we’re playing with a completely new team — I feel pretty good about our chances next time we play them.”Today’s game against LMU marks the Trojans’ first meeting of the year with the Lions. Saturday’s matchup against Pacific will be both the USC’s second home game of the year at Uytengsu Aquatic Center and its second time facing the Tigers. The Trojans topped the Tigers in last year’s NCAA Finals to win their sixth straight national championship, and defeated the Tigers in the rematch 10-3 at this season’s Triton Tournament on Sept. 7.With a chance to get back on the right track against LMU and Pacific, Vavic made better power play defense a focal point for the future, citing the Trojans’ SoCal Tournament title win earlier in the season.“The reason we won the SoCal Tournament was because our down-man defense was excellent. Excellent,” Vavic said. “In this game, it was terrible. Stanford scored six goals out of eight 6-on-5 opportunities, and that’s a terrible percentage for us. At the same time our 6-on-5 against Stanford was three [goals] out of seven [opportunities]. Those are two areas right there that make a difference in winning and losing — we score one and we stop them once, we win the game.”Despite never leading in last weekend’s game, the Trojans persisted through multi-goal deficits at the end of both the first and second halves. Redshirt senior driver Rex Butler, who scored late in the fourth quarter against Stanford to equalize the game at 10-all, emphasized the need to remain persistent through the upcoming matchups.“I think we showed great resilience,” Butler said. “It’s always disappointing to take a loss like that, but the most important thing is to learn from our mistakes and make sure the loss doesn’t go to waste. We’ve got to correct every mistake and move forward.”As they move forward, the Trojans will want to stave off any potential upsets this week and use the two games to regain their offensive rhythm. Though the team scored ten goals, Stanford goalie Drew Holland tallied 20 saves, which USC senior driver Kostas Genidounias attributed to the Trojans’ own failure to finish at the cage.“It was really just bad [shooting] by us,” Genidounias said. “In the first half [against Stanford] we were two out of twenty [in shots]. Out of these 18 shots we missed, around 10 to 12 were right on the goalkeeper, so we made him look like a hero when we just didn’t shoot well.”The Trojans travel to Westchester, California, today to face the Lions starting at 4 p.m. before returning home for their 1 p.m. game Saturday at Uytengsu Aquatics Center.last_img read more
