Wenger seeking to improve Gunners

first_img “Of course it is unfair. Why should I resist (to spend)? I just defend the idea that you spend the money you have and not the money you don’t have. “For years I did that. Today we have more so we can spend more. It is as simple as that. “Of course I am excited by that prospect, but what I want to convince you of is that we are ready to spend the money if we feel that the players makes us a better team tomorrow morning. “Maybe it is difficult to balance that in a newspaper, but football is not only about that. It is bigger than that, it is about the team, the quality of the play, the spirit and togetherness and the quality of the players. Therefore we have to focus on all the rest as well.” Arsenal open the new Barclays Premier League campaign against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon without Mikel Arteta, the midfielder possibly set for up to six weeks sidelined by a thigh injury. A £50million deal for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez continues to be touted, but with the player back in training with the Reds on Friday it appeared a reconciliation had taken place with Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers. Wenger still has plenty of targets, which are said to include Lille winger Florian Thauvin and Romania forward Ciprian Marica, who would be available on a Bosman following his release by Schalke. The French coach will this season become the longest serving manager in the top flight, but has been criticised for what is perceived as a lack of willingness to part with what is understood to be around £70million ready to reinvest in his squad. The 63-year-old, however, insists he is ready to spend the money, but only on the right calibre of player. “If you bring me tomorrow players who are better than those we have, I promise you we will look at them, but you cannot say that (Jack) Wilshere is a super player and then ask ‘why you do not buy better player than him?’,” said Wenger. “If you want to absolutely describe me as a greedy (miserly) person and you would live with me, you would see that I am not, I am rather generous,” he said. “But we had to go through a period when we had to look at the money that we spent. Today we look for the quality and not necessarily the money that we spend. “What can I do about it (the public perception)? Sometimes the image you (media) give people is reality and sometimes not. Chief executive Ivan Gazidis may have talked up the Gunners’ new ”financial firepower” at the end of the last campaign, but so far the only confirmed signing has been France Under-21 forward Yaya Sanogo – and that on a free transfer from Auxerre. Arsenal, who earlier this summer failed to push through a deal for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain, saw another target get away this week as £15million-rated Brazil midfielder Luiz Gustavo joined Wolfsburg from Bayern Munich. Manager Arsene Wenger insists he is excited by the prospect of spending big before the end of the transfer window – but stressed he must be convinced any new arrivals will prove better players than the club already have.

Wimbledon: Federer Survives Scare against Debutant

first_imgEight-time champion Roger Federer survived a first-set scare to see off South African debutant Lloyd Harris and reach the Wimbledon second round.Federer, 37, moved through the gears to win 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-2 on Centre Court.The Swiss, aiming for a record-extending ninth men’s title, will face Britain’s Jay Clarke next. Third seed Rafael Nadal faced fewer problems against Japanese qualifier Yuichi Sugita, winning 6-3 6-1 6-3 to set up a meeting with Nick Kyrgios.Harris, 22, had never even won a match on grass going into his meeting with arguably the greatest player of all time.But the world number 86 rocked Federer with blistering serves consistently around 130mph and backed that up with some heaving groundstrokes in a first set which left Centre Court murmuring in disbelief.After breaking Federer’s serve for a 4-2 lead, Harris confidently sealed the opener in 29 minutes as he threatened to create one of the most seismic shocks ever seen at Wimbledon.Federer, who had dropped a set in the first round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2010, seemed to lack the assurance which has rarely gone missing in his illustrious career.“I struggled early on. I felt a bit frozen, my legs weren’t going,” he told BBC Sport.“I felt it was heavy out there, the ball wasn’t going when I was hitting it and he was hitting it big.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Injured Grant doesn’t dress for Syracuse’s loss to Georgia Tech

first_img Published on March 5, 2014 at 2:17 am Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Facebook Twitter Google+ Jerami Grant did not dress for No. 7 Syracuse’s 67-62 loss to Georgia Tech on Tuesday as his sore back continues to limit his movement.Grant is expected to return to practice soon, SU head coach Jim Boeheim said, but there was little update as to the injury itself.“We have no idea,” Boeheim said. “There’s nothing wrong. He’s got some soreness and we think that he could be ready to play in a few days.“He did practice last week and he was all right one day, sore the next. Everybody feels that he’ll be all right.”Grant sat on the sidelines in a stylish dark blue button-down shirt with tan pants and suspenders. In his place on the court, freshman Tyler Roberson scored just two points in 23 minutes while Michael Gbinije shot 1-of-4 in limited minutes on the wing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Obviously injuries are a part of basketball,” Boeheim said, “but we’re a team that needs all of our parts. If we have all of our parts, I think we’re a very good basketball team. If we don’t have all of our parts, I don’t think we are.”Teammates agreed that Grant’s absence has hurt the team’s performance at both ends of the court. Point guard Tyler Ennis referenced his role as a secondary scoring option — something the Orange has lacked during its 1-4 skid — and his defensive rebounding.“You’re obviously going to miss him, but I think we have the pieces and the people who can step up and fill his void until he comes back,” Ennis said. “It’s always going to hurt losing a guy like that.”Heading into the team’s regular-season finale against Florida State on Sunday, it’s possible Grant returns. The five-day break can only help his back’s recovery.But it’s clear whenever Grant does return, he’ll bring a skillset that can help determine the outcome of games.Said Fair: “He’s a big part of our team. It could have been a different game if he was there. You never know. When he starts, he’s definitely a big boost to the team.” Commentslast_img read more

Q&A with Florida State beat writer Tom D’Angelo of the Palm Beach Post

first_imgSyracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) is riding a four-game losing streak heading into its game on Saturday at noon at No. 17 Florida State (6-1, 4-1). Follow along with SU-FSU coverage here or on Twitter @DOSports.To learn more about the Seminoles, The Daily Orange spoke with Florida State beat writer Tom D’Angelo of the Palm Beach Post.The Daily Orange: How have Florida State’s players reacted to its last-second loss?Tom D’Angelo: First of all, they don’t know how to react. The reason I say that is there are 72 players on this roster who have never lost a regular-season game. The only loss most of these guys have ever been a part of is the semifinal playoff game last year against Oregon. So they haven’t had a loss where they have to come back to practice on Monday to get ready for another game except for 13 scholarship players, which, when you think about it, how amazing it was … As Jimbo Fisher said, make sure one loss doesn’t turn into two. A couple of them mentioned (the loss) will put a chip on their shoulder the rest of the season … They have Clemson next week and if they had won Saturday, they might have been kind of been looking ahead. Now they know they can’t look ahead. Coming off a loss, I think they will have a little more motivation.The D.O.: How do you assess quarterback Everett Golson’s play this year after transferring from Notre Dame?AdvertisementThis is placeholder textT.D.: It’s been kind of a slow process for Everett. Obviously it’s a much different system and also not having the benefit of a spring to get used to that system. He jumped in in August and he’s been inconsistent at times. He’s been very efficient, his fourth-quarter interception at Georgia Tech Saturday night was his first turnover … Everett’s the only senior on the two-deep depth chart (on offense). Every time they seem to take a couple steps forward, they take a couple steps back … (Golson)’s been improving, he’s been getting better, they just haven’t been able to put together that full consistent game against a good team.The D.O.: Florida State’s allowing 16.1 points per game, good for fourth best in the ACC. What’s made the unit effective?T.D.: There’s no question the defense has been the biggest surprise of the team and has allowed them to have the 6-1 record. Because of the inexperience and the youth on offense, the defense has carried this team … They’ve really been able to get a pass rush. Last year, they had 17 sacks all year. They had (16) in the first six games this year. That’s something they’ve really worked on. They made it a point of emphasis throughout training camp and you can really tell a difference in getting to the backfield and pressuring the quarterback. They were not able to do that last year. And that was part of it, the secondary last year had its problems but they also just weren’t getting pressure on the quarterback.The D.O.: If Syracuse was to win, what’s one key area it would have to exploit?T.D.: The one thing teams have been able to do is Florida State has been vulnerable to the long passes. It actually cost them the game when Georgia Tech threw a 22-yard pass on fourth down on the drive where they kicked a field goal to tie it with about a minute to go. Brad Kaaya had a 75-yard touchdown pass in the Miami game. So they have been a little vulnerable to that. It’s hard to run on these guys. … That would be the one area to exploit because you can’t run on them.

UNC puts entire women’s basketball coaching staff on leave during investigation

first_imgNorth Carolina has placed longtime women’s basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell and her entire staff on paid administrative leave while it conducts a “review” of the program. UNC said in a release Monday afternoon that the probe was initiated “due to issues raised by student-athletes and others” but the announcement did not offer any more specifics.  Hatchell is fifth on the all-time wins list with a career record of 1,023-405 in 44 seasons overall and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. North Carolina was a No. 9 seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament and lost 92-72 to No. 8 seed Cal in the first round, giving the Tar Heels an 18-15 record this season. UNC just announced the women’s basketball staff is on administrative leave during an internal review. pic.twitter.com/RkmlK4Kz4f— Brant Wilkerson-New (@BrantGNR) April 1, 2019Lawyers from the Charlotte office of Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein will “conduct the review and assess the culture of the women’s basketball program and the experience of our student-athletes,” the university said, adding: “While we do not know the exact timetable, the review will be thorough and prompt.”Hatchell released a statement saying she would “fully cooperate” with the review. “I’ve had the privilege of coaching more than 200 young women during my 44 years in basketball,” Hatchell said, via the Daily Tar Heel. “My goal has always been to help them become the very best people they can be, on the basketball court and in life. I love each and every one of the players I’ve coached and would do anything to encourage and support them. They are like family to me. I love them all. Of course, I will cooperate fully in this review. I look forward to a prompt conclusion of this matter and the continuation of our very successful women’s basketball program.”The announcement comes less than a week after Georgia Tech fired MaChelle Joseph following a probe into allegations that the coach had mistreated players and staff. Joseph had been placed on leave Feb. 27 while a law firm investigated the complaints. Joseph has disputed the report’s findings. Hatchell, 67, has led the Tar Heels program since 1986. She won the national championship in 1994 and has made two more Final Four appearances since then. She won NAIA and AIAW national championships at Francis Marion in Florence, South Carolina, before moving to Chapel Hill. last_img read more

If Olympics 2020 are postponed, then people who bought tickets might not get refunds

first_imgMORE: Trump suggests delaying Olympics for a yearCoronavirus (COVID-19) has halted most sports worldwide, and in the U.S., no major pro league is expected to resume until at least mid-June. The Olympics are scheduled to begin July 24, meaning there is limited time for the pandemic to be controlled before the event needs to be postponed or called off entirely.So far, organizers have said they fully expect the Games to start on time. In all, ticket revenues have reached about 90 billion yen, or $83 million.”Tokyo 2020 shall not be liable for any failure to perform any obligation under the Terms and Conditions to the extent that the failure is caused by a Force Majeure,” reads a section in the terms and conditions for the Games. With the 2020 Olympics in Japan increasingly doubtful due to fears over the continued global spread of the coronavirus, hundreds of thousands of fans are learning the money they spent on tickets for the summer showcase might be a lost cause.Ticket refunds are considered unlikely, according to Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun, with terms and conditions giving organizers an avenue to keep sales revenue. There is a fine-print stipulation that a “public health emergency” does not leave the organizing committee liable for covering more than 5 million purchased tickets. This also applies to the 2020 Paralympics, which have reportedly sold 1.7 million tickets.last_img read more

Practical Advice From Olympia’s Van Dorm Realty – Should I Sell…

first_imgDiane and Jeff PustVan Dorm Realty, located in West Olympia, has been selling homes for over 30 years.  Now in its second generation of family-ownership, Jeff and Diane Pust are providing practical advice to Thurston County residents.Should I sell now is a question that Jeff Pust is frequently asked.“You can’t wait for the ‘right time’; it’s all relative,” answers Pust.  “Yes, property values have gone down, but so have everyone else’s so there is the potential to buy a new home at a reduced price.”Pust adds that many Van Dorm clients are choosing to sell now because they see opportunities in the market.“For example, a client may choose to sell their current home because they notice a beautiful home in a price range that they could not have afforded a few years ago,” comments Pust.Alternatively, some folks are at a stage in life where their large home is too large.  They are using this time as an opportunity to sell their large home, purchase a smaller more manageable home and using the difference to take advantage of another reduced price real estate purchase like a second home or investment property.  “This would not have made financial sense a few years ago” notes Pust.Regardless, home owners are seeing the potential in the market that didn’t exist five years ago.Add in very low interest rates and suddenly it becomes a lucrative decision to sell your home.  “Take advantage of phenomenal interest rates and good prices,” says Pust.Pust notes that there are signs that the housing market is turning.“It may be bold to say, but I believe that housing prices are on their way up.  I anticipate that, at the end of the year, we will look back and say that housing prices turned this year,” remarks Pust.“If you are of the mindset that you are going to hold out until prices come back, then you need to remember that everyone else’s prices will also start to increase,” comments Pust.  “When the market starts to turn, housing will go up, in general.”Pust compares the housing industry to all investment options.  “If you look at your home as one part of your investment portfolio, then you should constantly be evaluating whether you can earn a better return on your investment.  Perhaps now is the time to shift your money from one (home) investment to another,” summarizes Pust.Van Dorm Realty1530 Black Lake Blvd SW, Suite FOlympia, WA 98502360.943.3800 Facebook1Tweet0Pin0last_img read more
