Pulis: We’ve achieved nothing yet

first_imgTony Pulis insists last weekend’s victory over Chelsea does not mean Crystal Palace have secured their Barclays Premier League status and knows the win will count for little if they fall to Cardiff on Saturday. Press Association “It was three points against Chelsea but that is gone now,” he said. “The most important thing is to focus on the next game, which is probably going to be more difficult. The lads can take a lot from the way they played last weekend but that goes out the window when we kick-off on Saturday. “All that counts now is the Cardiff game. We need to make sure we put in enough performances like last weekend to get us over the line. “If people think it is all over and done with after the Chelsea game it isn’t, we have still got to get the points because everyone down there is fighting. We have go focus on getting the points as quickly as we can.” With Cardiff – promoted alongside Palace last season – also fighting for their lives, Pulis is anticipating a challenge when he takes his side to south Wales and reckons even a third away win of the campaign would not mean top-flight football is guaranteed for next season. “Cardiff will want to drag us back into it,” he said. “They have got some good players – It will be a very difficult game for us but we have known that all season. We have been the underdogs all season and that will continue, irrespective of where we are in the table. “Three points this weekend will not see us safe, we have to keep going until we are mathematically safe. “We have played well [away from home] this season without getting results. We have got four games left away from home and we have got to pick up points in those games. People will still write us off but that is not a problem with me.” As the lowest-scoring side in the division with just 20 goals, finding the back of the net has proved to be the Eagles’ main problem for much of the season. On-loan Stoke striker Cameron Jerome has only one goal, scored in the reverse fixture against Cardiff, while Glenn Murray has just returned from a long-term knee injury. Summer signing Marouane Chamakh has six goals to his name and the former Arsenal man has drawn plaudits for his effort since Pulis took charge at Selhurst Park. The 30-year-old Morocco international is back in training after missing four games with a hamstring problem and Pulis is hoping to be able to give Chamakh a run out in Cardiff. “Chamakh has trained all week and he looks ready to go,” the Welshman confirmed. “Whether we start him or whether he is on the bench, we will have to wait and see. It is a decision we will make closer to the game. “He has been outstanding for us, he has been the player that gives us something different. Chamakh is important to us. He has got tremendous technical ability and can open the door for us.” A John Terry own goal was enough to give Palace a surprise 1-0 victory over Jose Mourinho’s title-chasing Blues at Selhurst Park, moving the Eagles five points clear of the relegation zone in the process. No Palace side has ever spent longer than a single season in the Premier League and Pulis, who boasts a record of never being relegated during his managerial career, believes there is still plenty of work to be done if he is to become the first man to steer the south London side to safety. last_img read more

Warnock’s the right fit for Parish

first_imgCrystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish believes Neil Warnock will prove a “safe pair of hands” after the veteran manager began a second spell in charge at Selhurst Park. Press Association Warnock signed a two-year deal at Palace on Wednesday to make a surprise return, four years after leaving when the Eagles slipped into administration. He moved on to QPR, who sacked Warnock in January 2012 with the club 17th in the Premier League after he had guided them to the top flight for the first time in 15 years, and went on to work for Leeds but achieved scant success at Elland Road. Parish turned to Warnock after giving up on the idea of appointing Malky Mackay when the Scot admitted to sending a series of “completely unacceptable” text messages during his time in charge of Cardiff. “Malky was someone who interviewed very well,” Parish said on Wednesday. “It was impossible to offer him the job. From a footballing point of view Malky was a very good candidate but unfortunately there were things that obviously meant we couldn’t bring him to the club.” At the age of 65, Warnock is unlikely to prove the long-term solution that Palace were aiming for, but he could have a kingmaking role next summer when he and Parish consider the club’s long-term future. In the short term, Parish and Warnock were preparing to discuss transfer targets ahead of Monday’s deadline for summer deals. “There’s plenty more work to do,” Parish told Sky Sports News HQ. “We’ve got the transfer window closing on Monday and I think he’d want to bring a few in, so hopefully we’ve got some more good news for supporters in the next few days.” Palace have lost their opening two Premier League matches to Arsenal and West Ham, having been jolted by the surprise departure of manager Tony Pulis on the eve of the season. In Warnock, Parish is certain he has found an ideal successor to Pulis. “I’ve known Neil since the club went into administration. Funnily enough the first time I met Neil properly was when we flew to Newcastle the night we went into admin,” Parish said. Palace are at Newcastle on Saturday. “He’s someone who has always been helpful to me and offered advice and I think he’s a safe pair of hands for us right now. “I think he’s got unfinished business. I think he’s got things he wants to prove to himself. I think he likes the club and has a lot of affection for the fans and he felt a good fit.” Parish has “succession planning” on his mind, hoping to build a solid structure at the club. “Once we get this season out of the way Neil and I will sit down and talk about that and hopefully we can plan the future for the club in a more considered fashion,” Parish said. After Mackay, Tim Sherwood, Neil Lennon, Steve Clarke and Glenn Hoddle were linked to the position, it came out of the blue for Warnock to leapfrog to the front of the queue. “We never offered the job to anybody else,” Parish said. “No job offer was made to any manager other than Neil, and that’s the person we want to go forward with.” Warnock’s former Palace assistant Mick Jones believes his old boss is still hurting from the way he left QPR. Jones, who worked with Warnock for eight years at Sheffield United, Palace, QPR and Leeds, knows his friend is desperate for another chance. “The last time we were never in the bottom three and I know that rankles with Neil, how he got the sack and had never been in the relegation zone,” Jones told Press Association Sport. “There’s something about Neil and Palace that rings true. He never regretted being there, he loved living there, his family were happy and he was sad to leave. “He is steeped in management success and promotions and when you look around at candidates for Premier League roles, I can’t see a better one. “Since Sunday League football, since day one, Neil and football management have been a marriage. “He has got the thickest hide I have ever known.” last_img read more

Ramdin praises DCC players, UWI UNICOM T20 officials and sponsors

first_imgBy Brij ParasnathWEST Indies senior professional Denesh Ramdin, who successfully led Cane Farm Sports Club to the 2016 UWI UNICOM T20 title; was high in praise for the organisers and officials for their high level of professionalism and the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) players for their consistency and fighting qualities.The newly-appointed captain of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force team that will attempt to register a unique hat-trick of Super50 crowns commended the organising committee members (headed by Dr Trevor Alleyne) and said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed playing in the UWI UNICOM T20 tournament and it was one of the best.The organisers did a fantastic job and players are extremely happy with the way everything put together for us to give of our best.”Ramdin also expressed sincere gratitude to all the sponsors for contributing to the overall success of the tournament and stated: “I want especially, on behalf of all the teams and players who participated in the UWI UNICOM T20 tournament to thank all the sponsors, including UNICOM – the main sponsor; who made it possible for us to come and play in these competitive matches that will help all of us to improve and be ready for higher level competitions. We had great fun playing here and look forward to coming back to defend the title.”Ramdin singled out the DCC players for special mention and said: “I want to congratulate the Demerara Cricket Club players for their consistency and fighting spirit. I am impressed with the way they played the game and made us fight very hard for the victory.”He was also appreciative of the crowd response and stressed: “The crowd in the final were real good and their reactions helped the players to lift their game and put on a good show. Our role is to entertain all cricket supporters and other stakeholders, and I think they would have enjoyed what they saw. We are excited to have won the competition and made everyone very happy.”“Special thanks also to the media personnel who provided good coverage of the tournament as these reports and highlights also help to push the players to improve and do better every time they go on the field,” added Ramdin, who was at the helm of the Trinidad and Tobago’s senior team that had won a hat-trick of Caribbean T20 titles in 2011, 2012 and 2013.Cane Farm SC maintained their unbeaten record and celebrated sweet success when they registered an impressive 67-run win over the previously unbeaten DCC in the grand finale contested last Sunday at the Sir Frank Worrell ground, St Augustine campus.DCC, without the services of their two regional players Christopher Barnwell and Paul Wintz surprised the other local T&T teams and won four consecutive matches before their winning streak ended against the star-studded Cane Farm SC team that proved superior with their overall experience and their class was too much for the Guyanese double-crowned T20 champs.For his wonderful batting exploits and entertainment in the tournament, 29-year-old Singh was rewarded with the UNICOM Player-of-the-Series award of TT$4 000 plus a special gold chain and pendant, courtesy Kanhai Raghubir Jewellery.On behalf of the victorious Cane Farm SC, Ramdin collected the winning prize of TT$40 000 from UNICOM plus the UWI-UNICOM T20 Trophy while all members of his winning team received hampers, courtesy AS Bryden & Sons.last_img read more

Region Two gets new Sports Officer

first_imgAFTER more than a decade without a Sports Officer in Region Two, the Ministry of Education Department of Culture, Youth and Sport has employed Herald Aldes in the position and his first aim is to regularise sports in the region.According to Aldes, there is dire need for sports in the area to be organised into regulated groups, which will enable the athletes and organisations to participate in events – a lack that is currently affecting the progress of sports in the area.“We need to have a working group so that the youths can participate in regional matches, since the National Sports Commission does not allow unregulated groups to play in the organised games,” Aldes explained, in an interview with the Government Information Agency (GINA).Aldes is already looking at putting on activities that will help the development of sports in the region. Through the collaboration with several non-governmental organisations (NGOs) a sports day is scheduled for March 12, to be held in observance of International Women’s Day.Aldes is also looking towards the establishment of a database which will help to keep track of talented athletes in the various sport disciplines.Moreover, a youth forum in April is also on the cards. At the youth forum there will be a particular focus on mental health and ways of reducing the suicide rate that has plagued that region.Regional Executive Officer (REO) Rupert Hopkinson is particularly pleased with the initiative to invest in the resuscitation of sports in the region.“It is hoped therefore that the public will make full use of the sports department and engage in collaborative ventures that can benefit clubs, communities and the region as a whole,” Hopkinson told GINA.Region Two’s Information Development Officer Elroy Stephney stated that the youth officer assigned to the region continues to aid several villages including the hinterland areas through youth camps and training in educational disciplines, according to the GINA report. Projects organised by the President’s Youth Award Republic of Guyana (PYARG) are included.Stephney noted that the youth officer has also undertaken to form youth groups in several communities so that “they will flourish and maintain their cultures, and showcase their talent in different fields.“The initiative will also serve to provide exposure to young people attached to the groups to develop into leaders,” Stephney added.last_img read more

UW’s senior sendoff class act

first_imgOne hundred and six days ago (that’s 15 weeks; 2,544 hours; 152,640 minutes, etc.), I sat here and told you that the athletic department did a disservice to UW’s football senior class. I wrote that Senior Day was overlooked and one of the greatest graduating classes in the school’s history were all but forgotten like last year’s Madden game by the game-day staff.I then issued a challenge for the school to make sure the same didn’t happen to the men’s basketball team last Saturday.So, just what do I have to say following the Badger hoopsters’ Senior Day?Bravo. Job well done.I’m not disillusioned enough to believe that what I wrote made the difference between how Joe Thomas and John Stocco’s Camp Randall farewells went in comparison to those of Alando Tucker, Kammron Taylor and Jason Chappell. But the fact is that the team, game-day staff, athletic department and all involved put together a fantastic, well-deserved sendoff for maybe the most successful senior class in men’s basketball team history.It was an event. It was exciting. It was exactly what the players deserved.The stands were almost full when Tucker, Taylor and Chappell received plaques and were recognized. And the crowd gave them a moving ovation. After the game and Taylor’s late-game heroics, the many fans stuck around to watch a post-game video presentation that concluded with players, fans and coaches all reaching for Kleenex.Sure, it might’ve been a little over-the-top, a little too high school graduation, but who cares? It’s way better to overdo it a little bit than to not do enough. I’d rather see baby photos of Tucker with his Gerald from “Hey Arnold” haircut than see no video montage at all.All involved said the experience was wonderful.Tucker gushed at how emotional the whole experience made him, from the pre-game ceremony to Taylor’s shot of redemption to the post-game video package, calling the entire ordeal “picture perfect.”It couldn’t have happened to a better group of seniors, either. Tucker, Taylor and Chappell were ideal student athletes. The group never once brought negative publicity to the program, boasting spotless off-the-court records.They played in maybe the most successful stretch of basketball in UW history, pulling in a Big Ten title, a Big Ten tourney title, NCAA appearances every season, more than 3,500 points, 1,200 rebounds and four to five of the best years of basketball Wisconsin fans have ever seen.It was probably harder for fans to think they will never again see Tucker throw down a high-flying dipsy-do dunkaroo at the Kohl Center again — unless he’s in an alumni game and still has hops at age 50 — than it was for the players to say goodbye. They can always come back like Devin Harris does annually.Again, all involved with creating Senior Day should be commended and receive a standing ovation of their own.Now what’s the trick? Keeping it up.In just 188 days from now (6 months; 4 days; 26 weeks; 4,512 hours; 16,243,200 seconds; 999,999,999 Gilbert Brown Twinkies devoured, etc.), the Badger football team in a potentially huge matchup with Michigan at home, will again have Senior Day.Men’s basketball head coach Bo Ryan said Saturday that all senior classes are special in some way and every Senior Day is one to be remembered.While this group of seniors for the gridiron gang likely won’t be as high profile as the past one — or Tucker, Taylor and Chappell — that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve the same treatment. In fact, they might even deserve better if the school challenges itself and tries to improve upon a pretty tough act to follow from Saturday.With any luck, the Wolverines will never know what hit them.Dave McGrath is a senior majoring in English and journalism. If you think Tucker should still rock the “Gerald” cut too, you can write him at dmcgrath@badgerherald.com.last_img read more
