Slaven Bilic brushes off Sam Allardyce criticism of Andy Carroll

first_img “We tried to explain to him that he needed to work for six weeks and have a pre-season, not to train for 10 days, roll up his sleeves and play the game,” he added. “He did his time and we should all benefit from that.” Carroll has shaken off the knock which kept him out of the 2-2 draw at Sunderland a fortnight ago and is fit to face Crystal Palace on Saturday. He could be joined in the squad by fellow forward Enner Valencia, who was injured during the Europa League tie against Astra Giurgiu in July, and defender Angelo Ogbonna following a hamstring injury. Slaven Bilic has brushed off Sam Allardyce’s criticism of Andy Carroll and claims the striker is totally focused on getting fit this season. In his autobiography, being serialised in The Sun, former West Ham boss Allardyce questioned Carroll’s dedication during his injury-hit spell at Upton Park. Current Hammers chief Bilic, who replaced Allardyce in the summer, admitted he was aware of Carroll’s reputation before taking over in east London. But Bilic insists the 26-year-old, who has made three appearances since finally overcoming a long-term ankle injury, has been a model professional this term. “I did not have to become West Ham manager to know about Andy Carroll,” said Bilic. “I heard about that before, that sometimes he got injured because he was not totally dedicated to being a footballer. “From my first day, he was injured. But the way he was working – in six to eight weeks of struggle that was boring and not ideal and not fun – he did it as a great professional and now we are expecting big benefits out of that. “Those stories are definite, there is something behind them, they are true. It is very rare that people are making up stories. “There is something there, but it looks much worse. I don’t want to comment on the stories. “He’s been out a few times, but his rehabilitation and training, especially in that period, was top class.” Bilic made Carroll undergo his own mini pre-season, rather than rush him back into the team, in a bid to avoid the frontman breaking down again.

UC loses fee case, must pay millions

first_img “The university believes that there was no contract regarding the amount of fees,” he said. “All the increases which were prompted by the state crisis were justified.” The court also found that UC broke contracts with more than 47,000 students when their educational fees were raised after they had enrolled and been billed in 2003. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They say the state’s budget crisis of the past few years and subsequent cut in UC funding forced them to ask students to pay more. In his ruling made public Monday, San Francisco Superior Court Judge James L. Warren found that UC broke its promise to students who first enrolled in professional schools in 2002 or earlier. The ruling said contracts were breached with other students when fees were raised in 2003 after they had been billed. He ruled that the school should pay nearly $34 million to more than 9,000 students, but no payments will be made while the case is pending. Mo Kashmiri, a UC Berkeley law school graduate and one of the original plaintiffs, said the ruling was “a great victory for students.” Still, he said he was disappointed UC will be filing an appeal. “They’re going to waste a lot of money in legal fees,” he said. Spokesman Ricardo Vazquez said UC officials believe the ruling is incorrect. BERKELEY – A judge says the University of California owes millions to students who sued claiming that fee increases amounted to a breach of contract. UC officials, who maintain there was no contract, said Monday that they will appeal the ruling. The case stems from a suit filed by professional students alleging that UC failed to keep a promise to keep fees stable during their three-year course of study. In fact, fees increased a number of times. last_img read more
