Decembers packed fixture list always presents a challenge for managers and players, but for clubs that are struggling to find form, quick turnarounds can be a good thing. Earl Mitchell Jersey .Such is the case for West Ham United as Slaven Bilics club put an end to a troubling six-match winless run in midweek and now turn their attention to Hull City on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium.After opening with just one win in their first seven Premier League matches, the Hammers bounced back with consecutive clean sheet victories over Crystal Palace and Sunderland in mid-October. Theyve fallen off since then, resulting in their most recent slide and 15th position in the table with 16 points.Bilics side (4-4-8) claimed an important victory over Burnley on Wednesday thanks to a first-half stoppage time penalty from Mark Noble, which should give the club impetus to kick on against Hull.Goalkeeper Darren Randolph believes Wednesdays win serves that purpose.The morale is good in the dressing room, Randolph said. There is happiness and relief that we managed to get a victory and we are moving further up the table. We have shown in patches this season how well we can play. We just need to do it for the whole game.We have been waiting for a while for a result at London Stadium. We have not played amazing football but right now we just need points and the rest will follow.Hull City (3-3-10) have struggled in their return to the top flight and find themselves in the drop zone with 12 points. But a win Saturday could pull the Tigers out of the bottom three, pending other results.Hull have won only one of their last 14 league matches -- a 2-1 result over Southampton on Nov 6. -- and find themselves riding a five-match winless drought following Wednesdays 3-0 capitulation at the hands of Tottenham-Hotspur.Its difficult to explain to the players that I thought they did well, and yet were on the end of a 3-0 defeat, Hull manager Mike Phelan said. Weve lost 3-0 against a very good Tottenham side, but I thought we were more than value in our efforts. We were positive, we took the game to Tottenham at times and caused them a few headaches.Despite the loss, defender Michael Dawson urged his club to make a quick turnaround and be ready for Saturdays clash.As a group weve got to stick together, Dawson said. The manager is doing a great job in getting everybody rallying round and now we go to West Ham on Saturday. That will be another tough test away from home but well pick ourselves up and go again.West Ham have won six successive league games at home against Hull City, not losing to the Tigers at home in a league meeting since January 1990.Hull City have seen a player sent off in three of their last six Premier League meetings with West Ham United, while West Hams last six League goals against Hull have all come in the second half. Solomon Thomas Jersey . Team physician Dr. Steve Traina performed the surgery Friday. Robinson was injured in a spill underneath the Nuggets basket during the first quarter of Wednesday nights loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. Eli Harold Jersey . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http:///...waun-williams-jersey .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. Over a two-week span, were answering the following question for college basketballs 10 best conferences: Which venue in each conference is the toughest place to play? A number of factors, not just capacity and attendance, could affect a venues place in the order. Where does your school fall??The Pit at New Mexico has always been considered one of the top venues in all of college basketball, but coach Steve Fisher has created quite an environment at San Diego State.Which one ranks at the top of the Mountain West? And where does the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV sit in the leagues rankings?11. San José State Spartans: The Event Center, opened in 1989 The toughest thing about playing at The Event Center is the lack of fans in the building. Its a small venue, with a capacity of 5,000, but the Spartans averaged only 1,647 last season.Fun fact: This isnt exactly a fun fact, but its a fact nonetheless: The Spartans are just 154-206 in the building since it opened in 1989.10. Fresno State Bulldogs: Save Mart Center, opened in 2003 Other than Thomas & Mack, its the largest venue (15,596) in the league, an NBA-style arena. Its nice, but the fans are far away from the action, and the Bulldogs averaged just 6,296 in attendance last season, a year in which the team was good and wound up going to the NCAA tournament.Fun fact: The first concert in the building was held by opera tenor Andrea Bocelli.9. Nevada Wolf Pack: Lawlor Events Center, opened in 1983 Its one of the easiest places to play in the league these days, but that could change if second-year coach Eric Musselman starts to get his team going on the court again. The Wolf Pack averaged 6,554 fans (capacity is 11,784) this past season, and even when they had it rolling under Trent Johnson and Mark Fox, they were averaging about 8,000 fans per game.Fun fact: The building was named after Glenn Jake Lawlor, who coached the football, mens basketball and baseball teams at one time or another. He was also the schools athletic director from 1951 to 1969.8. Air Force Falcons: Clune Arena, opened in 1968 Its an old building, and back when coach Joe Scott had things rolling in the mid-2000s, the cadet section was rocking. Clune, which holds 5,858, was sold out just about every game with 1,300 to 1,400 cadets jammed into 700 seats. Its not like that these days -- with an average of 1,476 fans last season -- but Clune has a low, flat ceiling, meaning it can get extremely loud. And the fans are right on top of the players.Fun fact: The building is named after Col. John Clune, Air Forces athletic director from 1975-91. Clune is actually a Naval Academy graduate.7. Colorado State Rams: Moby Arena, opened in 1966Its small (holds 8,745) and older, but it gets extremely loud at times, even though the Rams have averaged just under half-capacity over the past couple years. The students are right on top of the players, and coach Larry Eustachys team has a different mindset and style at home. One coach described the Rams as tough, physical and nasty in their building. Eustachy is also wild on the sidelines, which gets the crowd going.Fun fact: The arena was the setting for the 1976 movie One on One, starring Robbie Benson, in which he played a basketball standout from Colorado named Henry Steele.6. Boise State Broncos:?Taco Bell Arena, opened in 1982 Coach Leon Rice has done a terrific job the past few years with the program, butt it still hasnt resulted in sellout crowds. Elvis Dumervil Jersey. In 2015, the Broncs averaged 5,775 fans. Last season saw a slight increase to 6,270. The place holds more than 12,000. Its middle-of-the-road in terms of the toughest venues in the conference.Fun fact: The most memorable play in the arena came when UCLA point guard Tyus Edney went the length of the court to beat Missouri in the 1995 NCAA tournament. The Bruins went on to win the national title.5. UNLV Rebels: Thomas & Mack Center, opened in 1983 It obviously hasnt been what it was back in the 90s when Jerry Tarkanian made it the hottest ticket in a city full of them. The place holds more than 18,000 and is currently undergoing a $72.5 million modernization project, which includes a 2,500-square foot observation deck that overlooks the Las Vegas Strip. When Tark had it rolling, this place was as high-powered as just about any in the country.Fun fact: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar swished a skyhook against the Utah Jazz and passed Wilt Chamberlain as the NBAs all-time leading scorer in the building in 1984.4. Utah State Aggies: Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, opened in 1970 When the Aggies are winning, the student section is as good as just about any in the league. The 10,270 in Logan are cramped, clad in navy blue, and loud. The Aggies have won nearly 81 percent of their games in this building since it opened, and even though Utah State struggled last season, fans still came -- nearly 9,000 per home contest.Fun fact: The arena was named for Dee Glen Smith, the founder of Smiths Food & Drug.3. Wyoming Cowboys: Arena-Auditorium, opened in 1982 The elevation makes it extremely difficult to play in the Dome of Doom in Laramie. The place holds 11,612, and the winter weather doesnt help matters for opposing teams making the trip. The Cowboys have won 74 percent of their home games since the building opened. The arena is currently undergoing a $30 million renovation that will feature expansive courtside seating.Fun fact: Its the highest Division I court in the country with an elevation of 7,220 feet.2. New Mexico Lobos: WisePies Arena aka The Pit, opened in 1966 The Pit, which crams in nearly 15,000, is regarded as one of the top venues in the nation and ranked in the top five in attendance 16 times in the first 20 years of its existence. It gets mind-numbingly loud, the altitude (more than 5,300 feet) is extremely difficult for opponents, and the building is 37 feet below street level (hence the name). The Lobos are 708-162 in the building, an 81 percent clip.Fun fact: The St. Petersburg Times conducted a study of decibel levels at collegiate basketball arenas during the 1988-89 season, and the Lobos game against Arizona registered the loudest at 118 decibels.1. San Diego State Aztecs: Viejas Arena, opened in 1997 The venue is built into a canyon hillside and holds more than 12,000. Coach Steve Fisher has created a home environment that rocks. The Show is one of the top student sections in the country, and this is one of my favorite places to catch a game. The Aztecs sold out all 20 home games last season and ranked 29th in the nation in attendance.Fun fact: Viejas Arena sits in the schools old football stadium, the Aztec Bowl. There are concrete bleachers on either side of one parking lot. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
