10 months agoDyche’s bully reality: How Arsenal & Emery passed their latest test

first_imgTagsOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your say Dyche’s bully reality: How Arsenal & Emery passed their latest testby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: Intimidation? Stand over tactics? That is, literal stand over tactics? Oh no, not on this Arsenal. It may’ve worked in the past. But as Sean Dyche and his Burnley discovered on Saturday. Unai Emery and his players are a very different proposition today.They tried, did Burnley. They really did try. Going into the game, Dyche promised Emery and Arsenal a dose of reality. “Reality tactics”, he dubbed it.And the Clarets manager was good to his word. The visitors threw everything at Arsenal. Wrestling. Stamping. As Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remarked after his two goal performance, “Yes, it was a physical battle, it was really, really hard”.But this lot are no southern softies. Not when you have players like Sead Kolasinac and Sokratis ready to fight your corner. Not when even your manager is ready to give the opposition an earful. But they did try, did Burnley.Not once. But twice. Twice Ashley Barnes did his best Sergio Ramos impression, wrestling Sokratis to the Emirates turf. The first time ended with Barnes having the Gunners defender in a headlock. That was only after he had stood over his marker. But Sokratis was never going to be intimidated. Indeed, it was his reaction to Barnes’ antics that helped the Clarets striker escape a booking.Barnes only received a short word from ref Kevin Friend – no doubt helped out by Sokratis, as he put an own arm around his shoulder before asking, almost laughing as he did, “what dya think ya doin'”? The pair would be at it again later in the game, this time in the middle of the pitch. But just as before, they broke up without Friend brandishing a card.Then it was Matteo Guendouzi’s turn to be tested. But even this 19 year-old from France wasn’t to be cowed. Barnes – again – was the instigator, stamping a prostrate Guendouzi square on his chest. Again, there was no action shown by Friend. And for all the complaints about diving from Dyche in the aftermath, Guendouzi’s reaction was more Roy Keane than Neymar. Just as Sokratis had previously, Guendouzi’s response went some way to Barnes avoiding punishment. That Dyche complained about diving from the home team was baffling given the spot fires sparked around the pitch by his No10.But perhaps he was still coming down after copping it from Emery at the final whistle. A team reflects it’s manager. And this one – like so many on the pitch – is no shrinking violet.To be fair, this wasn’t Emery’s fight. And there really was no need for the Arsenal manager to get involved. But he’d had enough. Enough of Dyche’s bellowing. Enough of his complaining. Grabbing Dyche’s arm, he let him know what he thought of his antics. The pair squared up. It wasn’t Barnes versus Sokratis. But Emery wasn’t going to turn the other cheek.On paper, Arsenal should always be defeating Burnley at the Emirates. And the 3-1 scoreline stuck to script. But the manner of how these three points were achieved tells us everything about today’s Arsenal.They’re not a nasty team. Nor an overly physical one. But there’s a presence about them. There’s a bit of steel in there. From Soka and Seo to the kid from Lorient. You’re not going to intimidate this lot. There’s enough heavy duty in there to allow attacking players like Aubameyang the room to do their thing.Gary Neville, the former Manchester United captain, has branded past Arsenal teams, the ones of Arsene Wenger, as “soft”: “Technically they were as good as anything we’ve seen in England in my time. But there are all kinds of attributes that make up a football side and they didn’t like it when the contest became physical.”You always felt you had a chance against them because you could get about them, bully them.”And you fancy Dyche went into Saturday’s trip with the same sentiment.But this is a very different Arsenal from the team of the past decade. And the manager is certainly a polar opposite to what Dyche had grown used to finding upon Burnley’s visits to North London.As those around the Pemier League are fast realising. Emery’s Arsenal can outplay you. And outfight you. Whether it’s on the pitch. Or by the touchline. You can’t intimidate this lot. Just as “reality” snapped back at Dyche on Saturday.Dyche & Emery having a disagreement at FT. #twitterclarets#UTCpic.twitter.com/6Bi28yhv4p— TurfCast (@TurfCastPodcast) December 22, 2018 last_img read more

a month agoTorino coach Mazzarri: Blame me for Lecce loss

first_imgTorino coach Mazzarri: Blame me for Lecce lossby Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveTorino coach Walter Mazzarri was left frustrated after defeat to Lecce.However, he insists he was to blame for the 2-1 loss.Mazzarri said, “I want to apologise to the fans, as they were exceptional despite this being our worst performance for a very long time.“We got almost everything wrong tonight. The internationals arrived late, but playing on Monday we even had an extra day compared to most others, so maybe I just got things wrong in training.“We had too many players who were sluggish and lost, they looked like the bad brothers of the players who beat Atalanta. I saw at least four who just weren’t themselves, so that must be my fault, as I was unable to motivate or focus them.“Aside from possession, which at 2 miles per hour is futile anyway, we got nothing right. We didn’t even put in decent crosses other than from corners.“We had to concentrate on what we’ve always done well and we didn’t. If you look at their first goal, it’s inexplicable. You cannot concede a goal like that.“Last season, we were constantly pinning opponents back and then at times incidents didn’t go our way, including VAR interpretations. Tonight, Lecce looked capable of scoring a third or fourth goal.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Sarah Ferguson And Princess Eugenie Open Teenage Cancer Trust Unit

first_imgEast Anglia’s only specialist Teenage Cancer Trust unit for young patients which offers world-class treatment, was officially opened last month by the charity’s patron Sarah, Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie of York and charity ambassador, Harry Judd, from pop band McFly.The state-of-the-art Teenage Cancer Trust unit on ward C9 of Addenbrooke’s Hospital, one of the UK’s leading centres for cancer treatment, supports 14-to-24-year-old cancer patients from Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.The home-from-home unit provides a relaxed environment designed specifically for and by young people and has a social zone, parents’ room, chill-out room and learning centre. Staff are specially trained in cancers of this age group and have chosen to work with this age group.Since the first patient was admitted at the end of February 2012, staff have treated over 60 patients on the 11-bed unit which cost £3.6 million to build, most of which was provided by fundraising within East Anglia.Every day in the UK, six young people are told they have cancer and approximately 200 patients are diagnosed in East Anglia each year. Usually placed on a children’s ward or on an adult ward alongside elderly patients, young people can often feel extremely isolated when facing a cancer diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust units are designed to be as close as possible to a young person’s normal life outside hospital.Simon Davies, Chief Executive of Teenage Cancer Trust comments: “Today is a momentous day for the charity. Not only is this our 25th Teenage Cancer Trust unit but it is also the first in East Anglia and we are thrilled to have worked with Addenbrooke’s whose staff provide specialist care. We rely solely on public donations and this unit wouldn’t have been built if it hadn’t been for incredible, tireless support from local communities, businesses, patients and their families and friends over the past few years, helping us raise £2.9million.”Teenage Cancer Trust patron, Sarah, Duchess of York said: “I have been a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust for over twenty years and I’m always so excited to visit a new unit as every one is special and unique. This impressive unit showcases Teenage Cancer Trust’s design expertise at its absolute best and will give young cancer patients from across East Anglia a real fighting chance thanks to specialist cancer care at Addenbrooke’s.”Dr Helen Hatcher, consultant oncologist at Cambridge University Hospitals, said: “We are very happy to be celebrating the opening of the Teenage Cancer Trust unit today. It has been fantastic to see the benefits the new ward brings to young people and their families across the region. Having somewhere where young people can feel more relaxed in their environment when going through stressful and debilitating treatment has made an enormous difference to them and their families. One of our patients has had to spend several months on C9 said she would not have coped if she had not had been on this unit.”In addition to CUH staff providing clinical care on the unit, Teenage Cancer Trust also fund the youth support coordinator role which provides individually tailored support, making a young person’s time in hospital more tolerable by supervising and coordinating activities on and off the ward and encouraging patients to socialise and remain active and connected with other young people.Developing the unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital is the first step in Teenage Cancer Trust’s commitment to helping young people with cancer across East Anglia. On-going support and donations are now needed to maintain the unit, fund specialist staff and support the work of the charity’s free cancer awareness sessions in schools, colleges and universities across the region.The new unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital now brings the number of Teenage Cancer Trust units across the UK to 25. This new unit also complements the existing drop-in centre Teenage Cancer Trust opened at Abington House at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in 2009. The Oasis offers support and advice to young patients and their families, as well as social and recreational facilities.Source:Teenage Cancer Trustlast_img read more

Between Drake videos helping us save MuchFACT DirectorX sat down with Coveteur

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: In your career so far, what was the most unexpected experience?“It has to be ‘Hotline Bling’— it was really surprising in its reaction. The way it took off virally, the memes, and the jokes, and…I have a clip of Donald Trump dancing to ‘Hotline Bling’ from Saturday Night Live. They did a parody, and Donald Trump is in there dancing. It was just one of those ‘What the hell? How the hell?’”Was he a good dancer?“No, of course not [laughs].” To state the obvious, music videos are the visual representation of the song. And when it comes to bringing that vision to life, everyone from Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Drake to Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne (and the list goes on) trust Toronto-based Director X to bring it to fruition. Not only that, but Director X makes it go viral. When he stopped by our portrait studio during TIFF, we sat down to talk “Hotline Bling”’s unexpected success (and the Trump dancing video that exists), his venture into full-length film direction, the experimental fringe science series he’s working on for Viceland, and the advice that fueled his success.So tell me, how did you decide on your name?“It’s an evolution from Little X. When I was a teenager, it was the time of like X Clan, and Malcolm X, and Public Enemy, so all hip-hop was very conscious with lots of X’s [Laughs]. For whatever reason, I really like the X names, so [my name] became Little X. Once I hit my 30s, Little X wasn’t sitting well with me—it felt like it was time to switch it up, so it evolved to Director X.” Advertisement Facebook Advertisement Twitter Advertisementlast_img read more

UK service provider Sky is reportedly planning to

first_imgUK service provider Sky is reportedly planning to launch a next-generation set-top box in the spring that will support ultra high-definition, 4K content.According to a Telegraph report, the box has been developed as part of a major overhaul of Sky’s TV technology, with cloud programme storage and multiscreen viewing on smartphones and tablets to also be supported.News first emerged last year claiming that Sky had set up an internal unit to work on the new set-top box initiative, dubbed ‘Project Ethan’, which included plans to move recorded programmes from customers’ DVR hard-drives to a central data centre.The new Telegraph report claims that while Sky had initially planned to launch the new set-top box last year, it is now due to introduce the update in spring alongside a major marketing push, in a bid to fend off pay TV and broadband competition from BT.A Sky spokesperson told DTVE: “Innovation is at the very heart of Sky’s business. We have a proven track record of leadership in the industry as we continually strive to find new ways to enhance the customer experience”.last_img read more

More children linked with greater risk of heart disease

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Mar 26 2019Parents who have five or more children may face a higher risk of heart disease than those who have only one or two keiki, according to new findings by public health researchers in the Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.Researchers led by Sara Hipp, a recent graduate of the Office of Public Health Studies program, looked at data from nearly 25,000 participants ages 50 and older who took part in a national health survey. The findings were published in the Journal of Aging and Health.”Many studies have linked women’s reproductive characteristics, such as their age at their first childbirth, with their risk of heart disease later in life,” Hipp said. “But there wasn’t much known about the association between family size and heart disease, and very few studies have looked at how fatherhood may relate to men’s risk of heart disease.”Related StoriesResearchers identify gene mutations linked to leukemia in children with Down’s syndromeNew therapeutic food boosts key growth-promoting gut microbes in malnourished childrenStudy explores role of iron in over 900 diseasesHipp and her co-authors found that 30 percent of the parents who said they had five or more children had a heart condition, such as coronary heart disease, angina or congestive heart failure. Just 22 percent of those who had only one or two children, and 21 percent of those who had no children, said they had been diagnosed with a heart condition.Among all the respondents, about one quarter said they’d been told by a doctor within the past two years that they had heart disease.”Our data showed that, in both sexes, having more children was associated with a greater risk of heart disease,” Hipp said. The link remained even when the researchers adjusted for other characteristics that can affect people’s risk of heart disease, such as age, race/ethnicity and birthplace.In women, the association persisted even after researchers adjusted for lifestyle variables, such as whether they smoked or exercised at least twice a week.”This work is important because it presents sophisticated analyses in a very large sample that not only replicates findings from a number of smaller studies, it also expands this body of work to look at the relationship between parenthood and heart disease in men,” said Yan Yan Wu, assistant professor of biostatistics in public health.

Kerala CM takes dig at Congress MLAs on quitting spree

first_img Press Trust of India ThiruvananthapuramJuly 12, 2019UPDATED: July 12, 2019 22:42 IST Pinarayi Vijayan said the Congress leadership must be prepared to face the challenges. (Photo: PTI)With Congress lawmakers quitting and cosying up to BJP in various states, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan took a dig at them, saying the grand old party was giving a helping hand in the saffron party’s membership drive.”In various states, the people’s representatives and leaders of the congress are joining the BJP. Congress has become a party engaged in increasing the membership of the BJP,” he said at a function.Apparently referring to the mass resignations in Congress in various states, including Karnataka and Goa, Vijayan asked whether a party like that “should remain an orphan without a leader” at a time when the country was going through a very difficult phase.Pinarayi Vijayan said the Congress leadership must be prepared to face the challenges.Not only during victories, but also during a crisis situation, there is a need to face it and give strong leadership, he said.The Chief Minister said the CPI(M) had for long been saying that those in the Congress cannot be trusted and none were sure when they would leave their party.There is no limit to the money being floated by the BJP, he said adding, Congressmen were like rats meekly following the pied piper.Meanwhile, KPCC President Mullapally Ramachandran hit out at Vijayan, saying he should find immediate solutions to strengthen CPI(M) at the national and state levels after the drubbing the Left front received in the Lok Sabha polls, instead of interfering in Congress’ internal affairs.”Congress does not want Vijayan’s panecea for resurrecting the party,” he said.Vijayan had from the beginning thwarted Rahul Gandhi’s efforts to form a front of secular democratic forces against the BJP at the national level, Ramachandran said in a statement.Also Read | Goa CM Pramod Sawant seeks resignation of 3 ministers, independent MLA to induct new facesAlso Read | Karnataka crisis: Will face all issues on floor of House, says CM KumaraswamyAlso Watch | Kumaraswamy seeks floor test, says he govt has numbersFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
