Villa wrap up Cole deal

first_img Former Sunderland and Ipswich manager Roy Keane has also been linked with a post on Lambert’s backroom staff. For Cole, the move offers a chance to prolong his career at the top level. Cole has spent the past season and a half back at West Ham, the club where he first made his name after coming through their youth ranks. He was regarded as one of the most gifted players of his generation and was snapped up by Chelsea for £6.6million in 2003. He won three Premier League titles and became an England regular during a successful seven-year spell at Stamford Bridge but injuries eventually led to him falling down the pecking order. A move to Liverpool to 2010 failed to reignite his career but he enjoyed a successful loan spell with Lille before taking up the opportunity to return to Upton Park. He rejoined the Hammers on an 18-month deal but he played only a a bit-part role in the season just concluded. He last started a Barclays Premier League last December, when he scored for West Ham in a 3-3 draw against West Brom. Cole said: “So far I’ve been lucky enough to have a really good career but there’s still a lot more I want to achieve. The fire is still burning in me. “I want to play at the highest level and win things still and this club fits.” Cole believes he can play a prominent role, in his preferred position, for a Villa side he believes has much to look forward to. He said: “There is just so much potential at the club to kick on and I think we’re only going to get better. “When I talked to the manager he said I would be playing in a more central position and, having those fast players in attack and around me, I feel like I can supply them with the bullets and get them the ball in the final third.” Cole’s future had seemed uncertain after he was released by West Ham, but retirement had never been on his mind. He said: “All of the ex-players, all of the professionals that I’ve ever spoken to in my career say, ‘Enjoy it while it lasts because it goes quick, take everything you can out of it.’ “That’s one thing I have done and one thing I’m proud to say is that I’ve enjoyed every day of my career, every moment of it and I want to squeeze as much out of it as I can. “I’m as excited now as I was as a 16-year-old lad going into my first season with West Ham.” Former England midfielder Joe Cole has joined Aston Villa on a free transfer, the club have announced. He told AVTV. “I’m really excited. It all happened really quickly, I got a call maybe a week or 10 days ago and it just felt like it was a really exciting place to come at this moment.” Cole becomes Villa’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos last week. Manager Paul Lambert is hoping to revamp his squad after two seasons of battling relegation from the Barclays Premier League and Cole was impressed by the Scot’s vision. He said: “This is a massive club and there’s a massive opportunity for the club to push on. That was the main factor. “I spoke to the gaffer and we have similar views on football. He didn’t need to sell the club but he explained what the view is for the future and, like I said, that was the main thing. When I spoke to the manager I knew I’d be signing. “I’ll be coming here and I’ll be learning too. Obviously I’ll bring my experience to the squad but you still learn every day and I want to learn. “I know I’ll learn from the manager, I’ll learn from other players here and going forward together we want to get the best results for Aston Villa.” Further changes are also likely at Villa with owner Randy Lerner having put the club up for sale. The 32-year-old was a free agent after being released by West Ham at the end of last season. Cole, who has also played for Chelsea and Liverpool in his career and won 56 caps for England, has signed a two-year deal at Villa Park. Press Associationlast_img read more

Blake Griffin says Clippers are ‘pressing’

first_imgBlake Griffin was one of the biggest offenders in the Clippers’ rather embarrassing 121-104 loss at Golden State on Wednesday night at Oracle Arena. He entered the game averaging 27.5 points, and was held to 14 by the Warriors.Moreover, the 6-foot-10 Griffin — typically a beast at 250 pounds — had only one rebound.But it’s not just Griffin. This Clippers team has struggled early on to match the intensity of other teams on a consistent basis. Even in the three games they’ve won, the Clippers (3-2) haven’t looked anything like the team they were a season ago. And the core group is back.STORY: Clippers name Gillian Zucker President of Business Operations Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Afterward, coach Doc Rivers said his team was “soft” and questioned its heart.“We struggled, there is no secret about it,” Griffin said, putting it mildly; the Clippers trailed by 29 points in the third quarter. “They were just better than us in every single way. We didn’t do anything we wanted to do and they looked like they did everything they wanted to do. We have to do better.”Griffin and every other returning player who endured this past season’s drama involving former owner Donald Sterling worked hard during the summer to get back at it under more favorable circumstances; they have a new and very likeable owner in Steve Ballmer.So far, it’s not working well.“I think sometimes we are pressing a little bit too much,” said Griffin, whose team next plays host to the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at Staples Center. “The good thing about all of this is that everybody is trying, everyone wants to win and everyone is ready to go. Sometimes you just have to calm down a little bit and let the system work itself.”center_img Point guard Chris Paul is the other leader of this team. He intimated this is a team still searching for some kind of identity, though it seems strange to hear him say that considering the entire starting lineup is back, as well as sixth man Jamal Crawford.“Tonight was no secret,” Paul said. “We are trying to find ourselves right now and we are trying to win at the same time, because you have to do that when you are in the West. It’s no secret that we are not playing the right way and we have to play better.”Or, as Rivers said: “Right now, this is not the same group from last year, and it’s the same group, so we’ve got to figure that out.”Rivers more than peevedRivers, the Clippers’ second-year coach, rarely gets emotional when dealing with reporters. But after emerging from the team’s locker room some 30 minutes after the game — typically, he takes about 10 minutes — one by one he ran down the things that ticked him off about the less-than-stellar effort of his players.The stat sheet showed him that in the first half, his team committed one foul. That is not what any coach wants to see, because it displays a lack of desire.“I’ve never been in a game where a team scores 65 points and we have one foul,” Rivers said; the Warriors led 65-42 at halftime. “That, to the core, bothers me to no end. I mean, I have never seen that before.“And I think the foul was late and it was a mistake; it probably wasn’t a foul. So for me, I’m doing something wrong because that’s as soft as you can probably get in a game. One foul at halftime? Are you (expletive) kidding me? I mean, that’s as bad as I’ve seen.”Also …The Warriors (4-0) made all 20 of their free throws Wednesday. … Did you see it? After hitting one of his four 3-pointers, the Warriors’ Draymond Green — running back down the court side by side with Griffin — stuck his tongue out at Griffin for a good long time while the two were very close to one another. … The teams next square off on Christmas Day at Staples Center.last_img read more
