Rodgers explains Carroll move

first_img The England international spent last season on loan at West Ham, who snapped up the 24-year-old on a permanent deal this summer. Rodgers allowed Carroll to exit the Merseyside club as he wanted Suarez to be given a free role at Liverpool. “I just felt it wouldn’t benefit Luis because when you play with a big target man, it is hard not to make him your focal point, so everything has to be set around the big guy,” Rodgers told several national newspapers. “Sometimes you get sucked into doing it more direct and clearly, with my history as a coach I don’t work that way. “You look at the goals that Luis has scored in my time, there has not been too many that have been too many that have been whipped-in-crosses, which to be fair, big Andy was brilliant at. “What we try to do here is create the environment for the elite player – and Luis is an elite player “We have created an environment for all our players, but obviously for him I had to make a call last year by letting Andy Carroll go out on loan. “That created a situation where we could get the benefit of Luis’ talent, but he still had to perform, and he has done that tremendously well.” Press Association The two strikers arrived at Anfield on January 31, 2011 in big-money deals after the Reds had sold their star asset Fernando Torres to Chelsea for £50million. While Suarez has gone to become an invaluable member of Liverpool’s squad, Carroll struggled with form and fitness following his £35million arrival from Newcastle. center_img Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he allowed Andy Carroll to leave the club for the benefit of star striker Luis Suarez.last_img read more

Public to get first view of athletes at annual Crusader Club Volleyball/Football Scrimmage

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow —  Wellington sports enthusiasts will have an opportunity to get a sneak preview of both the WHS volleyball and football teams Thursday evening. The Wellington Crusader volleyball team will be holding a Gatorade Scrimmage at 5 p.m. at the high school gymnasium and the WHS football, the Wellington Middle School team, and the youth football teams will be showcased in the Crusader Club Scrimmage.Here are a few things you will see:•Wellington has 70 football players out this year including 20 seniors (see newly released roster below). Individual pictures of all the football players can be found here.•Great manicured field thanks to new groundskeeper Steve Gill.•Other amenities such as the new banner on the press box and the new decked out Crusader Grill by Impact Bank.Here are a couple of things you will not see Thursday:•There is no fence inside the stadium separating the football players from the football fans. That is not a permanent thing. Wellington school officials are making the home stands ADA compatible. But in order to do this, they need to construct a sidewalk leading to the ADA football stands which means a new permanent fence has to wait until the sidewalk is constructed. There may be a makeshift fence. Nevertheless, just because there is no makeshift fence, that doesn’t give fans permission to roam the sidelines like back in the 1950s. Stay back!•The new Wellington scoreboard is not here yet nor are the 45-second clocks. The scoreboard is expected to be here for the second home game against Clearwater on Sept. 26, but won’t be here for the season opener against Augusta.The schedule for the scrimmage night is as follows:5 p.m. – Wellington Gatorade Volleyball Scrimmage – please bring a case of water or unused Gatorade bottles for the price of admission.6 p.m. – Gates open for the public at Sellers Park.6:15 – Middle School Scrimmage (7th North EZ / 8th South EZ)6:35 – Team Stretch6:50 – Cheer Performance (Youth getting ready)6:55 – Check Presentation (Youth getting ready)6:58 – After Prom Kick7:00 – 1st and 2nd North EZ / 3rd and 4th South EZ7:15 – 5th and 6th North EZ / High School Warm-Up South EZ7:30 – High School Scrimmage8:00 – DONE.In case of bad weather and poor field conditions we will conduct the scrimmage on the HS practice fields to protect the actual game field.•••••The official Wellington High School football roster is as follows: 9Logan JonesRB6’1188 12Lane BeardRB5’8155 9Jared OathoutOL6’0180 10Dylan GoodmanQB5’10165 12Jaden HinesRB5’7195 10Brad McBathTE6’0190 9Andrew JohnsonOL5’10250 12Brad WarnerWR6’0163 10Lane MorganTE6’1185 12Jace BrunsTE6’2170 11Wyatt WitmerOL5’9215 11Connor PhelpsWR6’1185 GradeNamePositionHeightWeight 11Remington GilkeyWR5’11150 11Nick HydeOL6’1215 11Monty BannisterRB5’10140 12Joey HaydonWR5’10170 9Trey CaryRB5’8135 9Matthew McCombOL5’9230 10Derek DriskellRB5’5130 12Austin DunnRB6’0210 12Austin PfalzgrafWR6’1165 9Andre FowlerOL6’1230 9Gabe SmithOL6’1215 9Ty WilsonTE5’7150 12Zach BodkinsTE6’0175 11Jason NorrisOL6’2260 9Aaron SchoemannRB6’0160 10Dylan FergusonRB5’11163 9Cade PhelpsQB6’1155 12Alejandro VargasOL6’0185 12Trevor NanceQB6’5210 12Skylar BrandOL5’11220 12Andrew PelkeyRB6’0170 12Joey LewallenOL5’10205 9Christian ClaytonTE6’1185 12Adam ConditTE6’1190center_img 12Ian KingWR5’7145 9AJ SnipesRB6’0140 10Seth SmithOL5’9160 10Carson LeGrandWR5’8145 9Malachi TidwellRB5’7118 10Michael BillingtonRB5’7162 11Jared ShieldsWR6’2165 9Ethan RedfordRB5’6140 Wellington High School football seniors will take the field Thursday night.

At the age of 34, James is playing some of the best basketball of his incredible career. Along with his 25.9 points per game, James is averaging a league-best 10.6 assists. Thursday begins a tough stretch for LA, as it plays the Bucks, Clippers, Nuggets and Mavericks over its next five games.
