Boyz hunt Honduras win

first_imgReggae Boyz captain Je-vaughn Watson says the new look Jamaica team set to take on Honduras today in an international friendly at BBVA Compass stadium in Texas, USA, at 8:30 p.m. Jamaica time, is on the right path and he expects an improved performance and a win. Watson, who was appointed captain when Theodore Whitmore started as interim coach back in September, told The Gleaner the players are united and enthusiastic and are all willing to ‘fight’ for a win. “It’s (team) on the right path, even though it’s a young team, the chemistry is good and when you have good chemistry you can do lots of good things. If guys are not gelling it’s not going to work. Everyone is born Jamaican, they are willing to fight to make sure we win,” he said from the team’s hotel during a telephone interview yesterday. “Every game, we try to win so we will try to win because the last game we lost and losing is a habit. So we have to try to win this game and step up the ranking,” Watson added. In the team’s last outing against USA, the Boyz spent most of the match defending. But Watson defended his troops’ performance and promised an improve display for tonight’s contest. “The last game, we put out a young team against a strong USA team, and the weather we played in, a lot of the guys weren’t use to it. But it was a good result and although we wanted to win, we came up short. But we are still rebuilding and we only lost 1-0, but we created a lot of chances and did not capitalise, so we are hoping when we go out tomorrow (today), we can capitalise and score some goals,” he commented.

Bilic says Man United bus attack did NOT take shine off Upton Park farewell

first_img1 Slaven Bilic insists the attack on the Manchester United coach did not overshadow West Ham’s epic Upton Park finale.Bottles were hurled at the visiting team bus by Hammers fans in ugly scenes outside the ground prior to Tuesday night’s clash.West Ham went on to win a dramatic game 3-2 before the club paid an emotional farewell to their home of 112 years.And Hammers boss Bilic is adamant the crowd trouble did not take the shine off a memorable night.“The best thing from that night was the 90 minutes of the game,” he said.“It was exceptional. First of all it was a great game of football. We were 1-0 up, 2-1 down, 3-2 up in the last game at the Boleyn Ground, against the biggest club in country. Nothing can overshadow that.“Of course we are not proud of it but we are not about to be blamed for it. What could we do as a club?“We apologised, the board and the chairman (David Sullivan) apologised and basically that’s all we can do.“The chairman said we can’t connect ourselves with the guys who did it and that’s it. Nothing can overshadow what we did on the pitch.”West Ham end their season with a trip to Stoke as they attempt to secure at least sixth place and qualification for the Europa League.Should they lose, a not entirely unfeasible set of results whereby Southampton fail to beat Crystal Palace and Liverpool win against West Brom, could see the Hammers and the Anfield club finish tied for sixth on points, goal difference and goals scored.Were that the case, and Liverpool did not qualify for the Champions League by winning their upcoming Europa League final, Premier League rules state there would be a play-off at a neutral ground to determine who finished sixth.But Bilic says the head-to-head results between the two teams should be used instead of playing a one-off game.“I don’t understand why it’s even a possibility,” he said. “At the end of the day in most of the countries after goal difference, it should be goals scored, then the two games between you.“That should be the third part. We beat them away and at home so there shouldn’t be a possibility for us to play Liverpool.“But it’s in our hands. If we win we will be sixth, minimum. If Manchester United slip up, possibly fifth. If Manchester City lose 25-0, possibly fourth.” Slaven Bilic celebrates West Ham’s winner against Manchester United last_img read more
