Arsenal boss Emery: I’ll enjoy my first Premier League Christmas – if we winby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery is sure he’ll enjoy his first Premier League Christmas – if they win their games.Having worked in Spain, Russia and France, Emery is more used to spending time with his family over the festive period. Instead, he was with his squad on Christmas Day finalising plans for this evening’s visit to Brighton.The Spaniard said: “Usually the holidays come around perfectly for us every time, but I am still going to enjoy it working.”I think it’s very important for the supporters (to see teams play over Christmas). “Playing against Brighton is perfect, Liverpool (Saturday) is perfect and playing on January 1 against Fulham is perfect. We are going to enjoy it… but only if we win.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Arsenal boss Emery: Martinelli not a strikerby Paul Vegas21 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery does not see Gabriel Martinelli as a striker despite his two goal performance against Standard Liege on Thursday.Playing as the Gunners’ leading man, Martinelli took his season tally to four from two starts in the resounding 4-0 victory.But Emery does not think the Brazilian will continue to play as a number nine.He said: “He prefers to play as a left winger – he also played as a right winger. I am using him as a striker because he played in that position in Brazil.”Striker is not the best position for him. But the first thing in his mind is to help us.”Tonight his performance and his aptitude was amazing.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

TAMPA, FL – JANUARY 09: Quarterback Deshaun Watson #4 of the Clemson Tigers celebrates with the College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy after defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide 35-31 to win the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium on January 9, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) Twitter/PlayoffThis Monday, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers will meet in the College Football Playoff title game – capping off what’s been an incredible 2015 season. But we’re already looking ahead to 2016. We have a feeling that fans of every other team in the nation are too.Last year, we put together a list of the 13 teams that could eventually prevail and win the national championship. Three of those teams – Clemson, Alabama and Michigan State – reached the College Football Playoff. Of course, two of them are in the title game.This year, we’ve gone ahead and done the same. Unfortunately, given the tier-system in college football regarding talent, the field is never wide open. Year over year, the same programs, more or less, are capable of putting together title contenders. In some sense, college football is more predictable than many of the other popular sports in our country.Which 13 teams actually have a chance to play for it all next year? Let’s find out:The Only 13 Teams That Can Win >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14
Marcelo Bielsa has been labelled ‘a bit autistic’ by two former France players that were familiar with his work at Marseille.Frank Leboeuf and Christophe Dugarry have slammed the Leeds manager for his behaviour during his spell with the Ligue 1 club between 2014 and 2015.Leeds have been top of the Championship table for the majority of the season, with many backing Bielsa to lead the Yorkshire club to the Premier League for the first time in 15 years.

But the Argentine’s first campaign in England has not been short of controversy, with the 63-year-old coming in for criticism when it emerged he was sending spies to watch Leeds’ opponents train earlier this season.Leboeuf, who played for Marseille between 2001 and 2003, says he has no respect for Bielsa and claims the Leeds boss once totally ignored one of his players in a lift during his time in charge of the French outfit.”He’s somebody I don’t like. I don’t like his life philosophy. I don’t like how he manages a group and for me he’s shown nothing,” the Frenchman told RMC Sport.”To take the lift in the morning with your captain, to not say hello and to not even look at him, there’s a bit of a problem.”Dugarry was also critical of Bielsa and went as far as to say that some of his behaviour was ‘a bit autistic’.”It’s the way he treats people, journalists, it’s a bit autistic, isn’t it?”The pair also went on to suggest that Bielsa’s staff have no respect for him and continued to hit out at the Argentine for his conduct.Leeds are currently sat in second place in the Championship having been leapfrogged by Norwich City after they were beaten by the Canaries at Elland Road on Saturday.
With FIFA 20 now announced, this is the final stretch of FIFA 19 Ultimate Team content. The Team of the Season (TOTS) event has been going on for the last few weeks and the final squad was recently revealed with the Rest of the World team, handing out cards to players from the remaining leagues.However, with so many leagues there were always going to be a few good players missing out and some FIFA fans are particularly annoyed about the omission of Celtic’s James Forrest.The Scotsman had an incredible season, playing a huge part in his club’s Scottish Premier League title win with 11 goals and nine assists which earned him the PFA Scotland Player of the Year award as well as three inform cards and a Man of the Match card on FIFA 19. Yet, the SPL only received one TOTS card, which was handed to James Tavernier of Celtic’s bitter rivals Rangers. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? To be fair, Tavernier was also fully deserving of an upgrade considering the defender’s remarkable tally of 17 goals and 20 assists in all competitions this season. The right-back’s new card has now overtaken Forrest’s MOTM card as the highest-rated SPL card on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team and is selling for about 40,000 coins in the FUT market.While Tavernier had a very good season, it seems odd that Forrest wasn’t included too. Some fans speculated that the snub was due to Celtic’s partnership with FIFA’s video game rival Pro Evolution Soccer.However, that conspiracy theory doesn’t hold up as Rangers are also partnered with the Konami game. The entire league is partnered with PES though which may be why the SPL only received one TOTS card.And Scottish fans should perhaps count themselves lucky as some leagues didn’t receive any blue cards, including Australia’s Hyundai A-League. That decision upset some fans who had been hoping for an upgrade to pacey golden boot winner Roy Krishna who scored 18 goals last season.Meanwhile, Greece champions PAOK FC received two TOTS cards with Varela and Vierinha. With so many leagues in FIFA now it appears it’s harder than ever for EA to balance the ROTW TOTS – maybe it’s time for an expansion to the FUT promotion?
And that’s that! After a summer that has taken Arsenal to the United States, France and now Spain – all eyes turn towards Newcastle.The Gunners completed their pre-season campaign in Barcelona on Sunday night, with a last-minute goal from Luis Suarez condemning them to a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona.Despite the loss, however, it’s been a positive summer on the whole for Arsenal, one that saw a number of youngsters catch the eye. But there have also been some promising signs from the senior players as well. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang lit up the Camp Nou on Sunday with his goal in the first half, turning well on the edge of the box before thumping a finish into the top right-hand corner to give Arsenal lead.But it was Mesut Ozil’s clever pass that split the Barcelona defence to find Aubameyang, and the German can be very satisfied with the work he has put in this summer.Ozil’s problems last season were well documented. He struggled to adjust to life under Unai Emery and for the first time since moving to Arsenal in 2013 he found himself out of the team at times.And he went into the summer knowing that Emery would ideally like to see him moved on, not least to free up £350,000 a week in wages which could be spent elsewhere.But Ozil had no interest in leaving – something he admitted publicly towards the end of last season – and so he returned earlier in the summer to fight for his place.And that is exactly what he has done since coming off the bench against Colorado Rapids in the opening game of the United States tour.Ozil has looked sharp every time he has taken to the pitch during pre-season. He has demanded the ball, he has run with it with purpose and against Barcelona he showed he still has that quality to unlock a defence.But arguably Ozil’s most impressive work this summer has been when he hasn’t had the ball. He has constantly got forward to support the attack and he has done his fair share of work defensively as well.He looks energised and determined to show he can still be an important member of this Arsenal squad.The arrival of Dani Ceballos this summer on loan from Madrid had many suggesting that Ozil would find himself being pushed further down the pecking order at the Emirates.But with Emery seemingly preparing to go into the new season with a 4-2-3-1 formation, Ozil has the opportunity to flourish in his favoured No.10 role, with Ceballos playing in a deeper role just behind.With the likes of Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and new £72 million signing Nicolas Pepe in front of such creative talents, it’s a mouthwatering proposition going forward for Emery. But the problem for the Spaniard still remains what happens at the back.We saw that again on Sunday in the Camp Nou. Arsenal were comfortable at the break, leading Barcelona 1-0 thanks to Aubameyang’s wonderful goal five minutes before the interval.But things unravelled in the second half, with Arsenal the masters of their own downfall.Defensively they were poor and kept giving the ball away in dangerous areas, inviting pressure on themselves on a regular basis.Eventually they conceded, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles comically rolling the ball past Leno into his own net. And then in the final minute one simple ball over the top saw Luis Suarez run through unmarked to volley home the winner, earning Barcelona the Joan Gamper trophy.It was a game that encapsulated where Arsenal are right now. Impressive going forward, but poor at the back.The transfer window shuts on Thursday, three days before Emery’s side take to the field at Newcastle to get the new Premier League season underway.And you feel if Arsenal are going to take advantage of having such impressive options going forward, then they have to do some more business in the market before Thursday’s 5pm deadline.The clock is ticking.

Sneha Saha New DelhiMay 7, 2019UPDATED: May 8, 2019 11:32 IST HIGHLIGHTSGoogle I/O 2019 will begin in a few hours from now.For the first time Google will have hardware announcements in I/O.At the I/O 2019 Google will launch two cheaper Pixels — Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.Google I/O 2019 will begin in a few hours from now and India Today Tech will be reporting from ground zero from California. At the event Google will have several software-based announcements like every year. This year’s I/O is different as alongside the software-based announcements for the first time there will be some hardware announcements too. Google will be launching cheaper Pixels at I/O 2019 aka the Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL. Ahead of the official release almost everything about the two new Pixels has been leaked. A new leak now outs the full specs sheet of the Pixel 3a.The leak comes from popular leakster Roland Quandt. The specs sheet reveals each and every detail about the cheaper Pixel 3a. According to the specs sheet the Pixel 3a will come packed with a 5.6-inch Full HD+ display with 1080p screen resolution and a 18:9 aspect ratio. The leak further suggests that the Pixel 3a will come with OLED display, now with that it will be safe to say that the new Pixel will offer great multimedia experience to the users out there.The specs sheet further reveals that the Google Pixel 3a will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor paired with up to 4GB of RAM. The specs sheet doesn’t reveal the storage details of the phone. The Pixel 3a is said to come packed with a 3000mAh battery setup and will have a polycarbonate build – this is understandable considering the price of the phone is expected to be much cheaper than the regular Pixels.advertisementCamera has always been the biggest highlight of the Google Pixel phones.
