Emery has all the tools to inflict even more pain on ‘dejected’ Pochettino

first_imgSPURS made the Champions League final last season. They finished above Arsenal.2 Unai Emery will go head to head against Mauricio Pochettino in the North London derbyCredit: Getty Images – GettyThey were supposed to be building for a better future, a title-winning one, with trophy filled open-top buses rolling past their shiny new 60,000 seater bowl.Fast forward 90 days.The manager looks utterly dejected. He’s fallen out with Jan Vertonghen. Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Serge Aurier are all rumoured to be nearing an exit. All very important players that would make a sad dent on their squad and ambitions. Additionally, the players are unhappy with the managers’ training and tactics. They are also dealing with an injury pile-up.SPURS LOOK DEJECTEDThe only thing Spurs fans are celebrating at the moment is the six-second pint pours at the stadium bar.Arsenal haven’t been free from bad press. Unai Emery was widely panned for a tactical disaster-class against Liverpool last weekend. This criticism is both fair, because the plan wasn’t very innovative and it didn’t work, but also verging on disingenuous because Liverpool boast an incredible starting 11.The Arsenal manager will not split the fanbase this weekend. Only one outcome is acceptable. Spurs are a club in turmoil and with a little over a year in the job, Emery really has to start delivering big results in big games. If Newcastle can turn them over away from home, Arsenal should be more than capable of taking 3 points at The Emirates.EMERY HAS TO GO FOR THE KILLSpurs are likely without a right-back, Ndombele and Dele Alli are likely out injured, and Eric Dier is also unlikely to feature.Emery has to go for the kill. Nicolas Pepe, his major signing of the summer has shown flashes of brilliance, he needs to be let loose on the wing and be given a mission to destroy. Emery has to play with a positive formation and lift the fans, there should be no deep block, we need to see his ‘play out the back’ idea developed so it’s a tactical weapon versus a weakness, we need to be positive from the off. We need to see a beautiful execution of a clever plan.There is a lot riding on the outcome. Spurs have been in freefall in the league in 2019.Most Read In FootballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by Celtic2The shift in power looked solidified for them for large parts of last season, but with all their turmoil and Arsenal’s positive summer, that might not last long. A big win for Emery will be huge statement, it’ll say that Arsenal aren’t pushing for top four, we’ll be pushing for top three. Unthinkable a year ago, but an attainable reality if Emery can deliver a vision this weekend.last_img read more

Savea has his smile back, targets ABs

first_imgPhoto: HENRY BROWNE/GETTY IMAGES. Caption: Julian Savea in action for the Barbarians against the All Blacks at Twickenham last month. The master coach wants to see his 27-year-old wing – stranded on the 46-try mark from his 54 tests when he was dropped from the All Blacks mid-year – rediscover his love of the game. He wants to see “the smile” back on the face of the man they call ‘The Bus’.Savea, who was in Auckland on Thursday to undertake promotional duties for February’s Brisbane Global Tens which he hopes to use to launch a successful comeback season, says the All Blacks’ boss can rest assured on that front.Savea and wife Fatima just a week ago welcomed baby girl Jude into the world. The big wing is over the moon about that, as well as where he finds himself as another Super Rugby season gets set to roll around.”It definitely is a great moment,” said Savea of the addition of baby Jude to his family. “The joy and happiness that you have in your heart when you hear them cry, it just makes you so happy. “It definitely does change your life. I’m going to have to start making better choices now,” he added with just a hint of a smile. “It’s a blessing and we just can’t get enough of her. I’m so obsessed with her.”As he is with his rugby right now. After a short break post his appearance for the Barbarians against the All Blacks in November., he is back into pre-season training, and working hard at meeting the challenges he has been set by both his franchise and national coaches.”The off-season has been good. I’ve been doing my own stuff, training with a couple of mates, and they have been keeping me honest. The biggest thing every year is just nutrition, and I think I’m on top of that.”He’s asked how important it is not to let his All Blacks disappointment define him, and weigh him down.”I’m a competitor,” he replies. “I can’t do much about who picks the team and that sort of stuff, but I can do a lot about myself and performing really well. I didn’t really care what anyone had to say, but I just wanted to keep playing well. The main thing was just to enjoy it and don’t sweat the little things.”You know the pre-season is going to hurt — that’s why I love it. It’s going to put you in the position you need to be in, in the shape you need to be in. I can’t wait. I know when I’m in that position I can play the best footy I can.”Savea’s response after his All Blacks dropping has indicated he is up for the fight. He produced an outstanding campaign on the right wing for the Wellington Lions as they won promotion back to the Premiership, and now his mindset appears as positive as it can be.”I love challenges,” he says. “It’s definitely the end goal to make the All Blacks. But that’s way down there and I’m taking one step at a time. At the moment I want to get into the pre-season, have a good tournament at the Tens and then kick things off with the Hurricanes.”Whatever happens there happens. I know they’ve got a lot of good outside backs there and guys that can cover there. I’m not getting ahead of myself. I know sometimes the coaches like to stick with who they like. We’ll just see how it goes.”But you know he has one destination in mind, even if his first stop is the Tens where he’s desperate to make an impact after signing on as an event ambassador”I don’t see it as a stage, or a vehicle to take me somewhere. It’s just a good way to kick-start the season. It’s just a tournament I want to enjoy being part of and put my best foot forward.”If he adds a smile on the dial, an All Blacks coach will be very happy indeed.last_img read more

The month of hope

first_imgRdT and the signing recordObviously, the first month of Abelardo will also be marked by the record investment that the Espanyol of Chen Yansheng has made in signings, which are also of immediate performance, to the joy of a coach who has been able to count on them the day after they were presented. Leandro Cabrera gave a good feeling against Athletic, Adrián Embarba played a few minutes that day and even gave an assist (even if it was somewhat involuntary) and Raúl de Tomás is demonstrating why he is the highest signing in the perica history: beyond his class , goes to goal per game. He certified the win against Villarreal and gave the tie against Athletic.Common senseBut Abelardo is, above all, sensible. On the pitch, adapting their schemes to the characteristics of the template, instead of being obscured in a drawing with a Corsican patent. And in the press rooms, for simply explaining what happens, projecting optimism but without falling into populist or unrealistic approaches. It is normal, which must continue the day the team loses.Return of IllusionIn short, these last 31 days, since Abelardo conducted his first training at Espanyol, have meant an injection of self-esteem into a parakeet environment that had practically lowered his arms. And most importantly, it has blown conviction to a staff that was at a crossroads. They are sensations, because Espanyol is still colista. But now there is hope. Today a month ago Abelardo conducted his first training at Espanyol. In this time, he has cut two points to the permanence, he has tied with a whole Barcelona, ​​he has received a record investment in signings and, above all, has generated illusion where there was depression. But it’s only the beginning: the team is still a colist.Unbeaten in LaLigaAt three, four and five points respectively were Leganés, Celta and Mallorca when Abelardo Fernández took the reins of a Espanyol in free fall, defeated with rumble in Butarque and unable to win in LaLiga since October. In this month in charge, the coach has not yet lost (he did in the Copa del Rey, before the Royal Society, which has been positively read as a backpack less than endure) and has managed to tie a whole Barcelona (2 -2), defeat at home to Villarreal (1-2) and match against Athletic (1-1) a match that until his arrival would most likely have been lost. Already ‘alone’ remains to win at Cornellà-El Prat.RevaluationThe good results do not come alone, and if Espanyol has cut two points in three days to stay it is largely because the players, most of whom were presenting minimum benefits, have been revalued in terms of performance. Abelardo has touched the key in obvious cases such as Marc Roca, who went from wrecking in Leganés to shine on the next day, against Barcelona, ​​and others like Sergi Darder, Javi López, Óscar Melendo or Jonathan Calleri, who has recovered the claw and the smell with a technician who already knew him well from the stage of both in Alavés.David López, the cornerstoneSpecial mention deserves the relocation of David López to a midfielder, his natural position, which already seemed prohibited for the rest of the coaches. And it is what has helped to balance a team that did not score goals and was a strainer. Brave the movement because Abelardo did it before signing a central, and with Fernando Calero far from his best level. But, next to Marc Roca, it has worked.last_img read more

New Zealand women footballers get same pay as men

first_img“Today’s announcement signifies that we as an organisation are committed to parity for the men’s and women’s game and to continuing the growth in all areas of our sport,” chief executive Andy Martin said.The deal is unlikely to bring vast sums to female players as the New Zealand men’s side, ranked 133rd in the world, earn only a fraction of their high-profile international counterparts.But Football Ferns striker Sarah Gregorius said it still represented an important principle that recognised the effort women put into their sport.“It’s such an awesome line that we’ve now drawn in the sand,” she told Radio New Zealand.“No matter who you are, whatever gender, when you pull on a New Zealand football shirt you’re entitled to the same treatment and respect no matter what.”The move comes after Norway’s football association signed an agreement last year giving its men’s and women’s teams pay parity.In practical terms, the New Zealand deal means women will receive the same match payments, equal fees on image rights and a similar proportion of tournament prize money.They will also enjoy the same travel arrangements, meaning women will no longer have to fly economy to tournaments while male players enjoy business class.New Zealand Rugby announced earlier this year that the Black Ferns, the five-time women’s world champions, would be offered professional contracts for the first time.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The new deal for New Zealand’s Football Ferns was hailed as a ‘landmark moment’. © AFP / GUSTAVO ANDRADEWELLINGTON, New Zealand, May 8 – New Zealand’s football body announced a new deal Tuesday that gives the national women’s team the same pay and conditions as the men’s side, becoming one of the world’s first countries to do so.Providing equality between the male All Whites and female Football Ferns was “a landmark moment for football in this country”, New Zealand Football said.last_img read more
