1 September: Benefiet voor Kika en BobbyMooreFund

Za 1 september 2012
Tijd: 15:00 – 3:00
Entree prijs: €10,00

Op deze dag staat het geld in zamelen voor KIKA en de Bobby Moore foundation centraal er treden vanaf 15u allerlei muzikanten en zangers en bands op en s’avonds wordt er afgesloten met een paar lokale dj’s .

Waarom deze dag? Ik ben geïnspireerd door een 10 jarig jongetje uit Engeland en fan van West Ham United genaamd Jonjo Heuermann. Deze kleine held zamelt al een paar jaar geld in voor die stichting voor onderzoek naar kanker. Sinds dat hij zijn oma aan die verschrikkelijke ziekte heeft verloren ,en, ook zijn held en voormalig West Ham Legend Bobby Moore is ook aan deze ziekte overleden .
Jonjo is bijna heel het jaar bezig om geld in te zamelen door het organiseren van sponsorlopen , veilingen ,zelfs tot aan abseilen toe. Mede omdat wij ook te maken hebben met geliefden die we gaan verliezen aan deze ziekte heb ik in overleg met de rest van de organisatie besloten om ook iets te doen !

We hebben dus besloten en ook rekening houdend met mensen die momenteel tegen deze ziekte aan het knokken zijn om geld in te zamelen voor KIKA en de Bobby Moore Foundation. Ik weet zeker dat wij met zijn allen voor een onvergetelijke dag zullen zorgen en dat er een leuk bedrag ingezameld wordt namens mij en de hele organisatie achter deze dag die mee werken.
Bedankt voor de interesse en tot Zaterdag 1 september 2012 in de Bunker in Gemert . Franklin van Dalen, Frank Vogels, Hilco Dijns, Kees Koopen en alle vrijwilligers van de Bunker in Gemert

On this day we going collect money for KIKA and the Bobby Moore foundation center  With 15h variety of musicians and singers and bands and the evening is concluded with a few local DJs.

Why this day? I am inspired by a 10 year old boy from England and West Ham United fan called Jonjo Heuermann. This little hero collects a few years for that foundation money for cancer research. Since his grandmother has lost that terrible disease, and even his hero and former West Ham Legend Bobby Moore is also deceased from this disease.
Jonjo is almost all year trying to raise money by organizing a sponsored walk, auctions, even to allow rappelling. Partly because we are dealing with loved ones that we’re going to lose to this disease I have, in consultation with the rest of the organization decided to do something!

We have therefore decided and also taking into account people who are currently in the fight against this disease to raise money for KIKA and the Bobby Moore Foundation. I’m sure all of us for an unforgettable day and will ensure that there is a nice amount collected on behalf of myself and the entire organization behind this day that it works.
Thanks for your interest and Saturday, September 1, 2012 in the Bunker in Gemert. Franklin van Dalen, Frank Bird, Hilco Dijns, Kees and buy all the volunteers of the Bunker in Gemert

West Ham vs Brighton

Albion travel to fellow promotion contenders West Ham on Saturday in search of an unlikely victory that could help put their play-off push back on track.

Consecutive defeats have left the Seagulls on the brink of the play-offs, 2 points adrift of Cardiff in 6th. A win here would be a much needed boost approaching the season’s climax. Poyet’s men will, however, have to improve on their recent away form if they’re to achieve a result.

Allardyce’s West Ham have been under intense scrutiny this season, with many expecting them to have stormed the division given the players at their disposal. They still have a slim chance of auto-promotion, but the play-offs would appear their most likely route out of the division.

Vital Quotes:

Gus Poyet is looking for a reaction from his side in-front of a sizable Upton Park crowd. He told

‘I absolutely loved playing at West Ham. Ninety-nine per cent of the time the stadium is full, there is always plenty of noise and most footballers enjoy playing in that environment.

‘There is always something special about playing there because it’s a magnificent place to play football. The pitch is always perfect and that’s what you play football for.

‘I’m looking forward to seeing how this set of players react to playing at West Ham. It will be a great test and a chance to learn for the future of this club.’ ___________________________________________________________

Sam Allardyce is anticipating a different contest to the one against Birmingham on Monday. Speaking to their official site, he explained..

‘Brighton will want to come and express themselves more than Birmingham did so I think we will have to use a different method and different tactics to make sure that we don’t allow them to get in their flow and then we must pick off their weaknesses which we know they have.

‘What matters is what happens in both penalty areas; we need to make sure they don’t get in our box and when we get in theirs we must make sure we take our chances and win the game on Saturday.’

West Ham United Team News:

West Ham team news to be confirmed..

Player to watch: Ricardo Vaz Te

Signed from Barnsley in January, where he hit a goal every other game – Vaz Te has continued that scoring form for the Hammers. Full of pace and trickery, Albion will do well to keep the Portuguese live-wire at bay.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News:

Liam Bridcutt looks likely to return to the heart of Albion’s midfield, having completed his 2-match suspension.

Craig Noone’s fitness is being monitored, whilst Joe Mattock should return to training on Friday – after missing out against Reading.

Tommy Elphick (achilles) remains on the sidelines with long-term injury.

Player to watch: Vicente Rodriguez

Vicente continues to exert his influence for the Seagulls, in an advanced playmaker role. The Spaniard has chipped in with a number of crucial assists in recent months, and will be hoping for more of the same at Upton Park.

Match Facts & Stats

Kevin Nolan pounced on a Liam Bridcutt error to score the only goal in a narrow Hammers victory at the Amex earlier in the season. Albion dominated possession, but were unable to break down their stubborn opponents.

The last two meetings at Upton Park brought contrasting fortunes for the Seagulls. In the 06/07 season, with two divisions separating the sides, Albion were on the end of a convincing 3-0 defeat in an FA Cup tie.

A few years prior to that, Guy Butters headed home to clinch a famous ‘backs to the wall’ 1-0 victory in a Championship clash.

Big Sam on: Brighton and Hove Albion

Sam Allardyce says Saturday’s visit of the Seagulls is a make-or-break fixture

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said his side are prepared for their biggest game of the season so far when Gus Poyet brings his Brighton and Hove Albion teamto Boleyn Ground on Saturday.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Big Sam made it clear that his side need four wins out of four in order to keep the pressure on the top two. Allardyce explained that the players are ready to put in the effort in order to keep up their challenge for automatic promotion.

With Southampton and Reading facing each other on Friday evening, West Ham could have the opportunity to close the gap on the top two when they face Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

With regards to Brighton they are still chasing a play-off place, what sort of game are you expecting on Saturday with both teams having so much to play for?

SA – I expect different tactics from Gus’s team from those Birmingham showed. Brighton will want to come and express themselves more than Birmingham did so I think we will have to use a different method and different tactics to make sure that we don’t allow them to get in their flow and then we must pick off their weaknesses which we know they have.

We need to exploit their weaknesses and make sure we win the game. What matters is what happens in both penalty areas; we need to make sure they don’t get in our box and when we get in theirs we must make sure we take our chances and win the game on Saturday.

Looking ahead to the next few weeks do you think there could be a major twist in the Championship before the end of the season?

SA – There could be yes. All we can do is make sure we win all our games and see what happens. We have slipped up enough in recent weeks by drawing too many matches and that has to stop now. We are more than capable of winning four games on the trot and it has to start with winning the most important game of the season so far on Saturday against Brighton. Otherwise we risk throwing a fantastic season down the drain.

I have no doubt that there will be slip ups between the top three before the end of the season but they can afford to drop points whereas we no longer have that luxury.We just need to make sure we win our four games starting with Brighton.

There could be a chance you could get automatic promotion then?

SA – If we win our four games we get 88 points. Last season 88 points won the championship so if we win them we will be very close to achieving automatic promotion. The players still believe that too. If anything in recent weeks the players have tried too hard to put things right. Sometimes when you try to hard you start to make more mistakes and I think that is what happened. At the end of the day we haven’t been losing but the run of five home draws was our Achilles heel.

Do you think this season’s title race has been one of the most exciting in recent years?

SA – Last year was pretty good with Norwich coming from where Reading have this season and they actually won the title. Reading have done it much earlier than Norwich did. We have to continue living with the pressure that West Ham brings and deliver the performances that will put West Ham where we need to be.

The team scored goals seven in two games over Easter. It is important that they have started scoring again isn’t it?

SA – It is very important yes. We scored two goals against Reading, four goals against Barnsley and three goals against Birmingham. Prior to Reading you would never have imagined this West Ham team conceding three or four goals which makes it even more frustrating. After our run of five draws we thought we had cracked it by scoring more. But as soon as our front men started putting the ball in the back of the net our defensive side went under and that surprised me a great deal that we allowed ourselves to let that happen.

We got ourselves in some fantastic positions during those games – especially Reading – but then to lose that game was shocking because our defensive game was so poor. Then, for the same thing to happen against Birmingham was just crazy. We have to be as good in possession and as good out of possession. If either part doesn’t work then you won’t win a game of football. The best teams in the country are the best teams at keeping the football; no-one ever talks about it because it always seems to be about attacking. But to attack you need the ball and that’s why these teams are the best.

In the second half against Birmingham the team came out fighting. Could that be a catalyst for the final games in turning one point into three?

SA – Hopefully yes. I’m concerned that the fact we haven’t won at home will still play on the minds of the players. But all we can do is continue to do the right things for the whole 90 minutes on Saturday and make sure we take our chances. If we do that we will win the game and if we don’t Brighton know that if we start making those errors again then they can capitalise on it. They’ve watched videos of us when we have performed well at home and not won because we have made too many mistakes.
