Unai Emery needs time at Arsenal despite ‘baffling’ Liverpool tactics – Robbie Fowler

Even I was baffled by his tactics at Anfield. They could have lost 7-1 there, because they were taken apart in a spell after half-time.‘Yet they got to the Europa League final in his first season, and he’s putting together a decent side, with an incredible attack.’Arsenal smashed their club record signing to bring in Nicolas Pepe over the summer to join an attacking corps that already boasts the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and the enigmatic Mesut Ozil.The Gunners defence has been strengthened too by David Luiz and Kieran Tierney, although the latter is still recovering from a hip injury, and Fowler knows that teams can take time to gel.‘I think he’s a coach who likes to create a different plan for each team he faces, and that can be a learning process for some players,’ Fowler added.‘Yet Jurgen Klopp does that too. Watch Liverpool closely, and they tweak their tactics each game, to exploit weakness in the opposition.‘Emery is a manager who can cope with egos and get the best from players. I remember when he took Klopp’s side apart in the second half of the 2016 Europa League final, with a brilliant tweak of his tactics.‘He’s also managed some big clubs, and been headhunted by some of the biggest. He has quality – but he is in a league where there are some of the very best managers in the world.‘In fact, I look at the likes of Barca, Bayern and even Real Madrid, and I wonder if their coaches are not quite at the level of the likes of Guardiola, Klopp, and Pochettino at the moment.‘So I’d rather wait and see what Emery can do at Arsenal, rather than jump on this bandwagon which is already killing him off with the season four games old.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Gold Coast renovation produces the goods

first_img39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.“This is the second property we’ve done in the area. “The first one was on Fifth Avenue,” she said.The couple fell in love with the area 14 years ago and have no plans to move.Mrs Peard said designing, building and living in the Fourteenth Ave home had given them abundant joy. 39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.COASTAL with a modern twist is how Kristy Peard describes the house she built with her husband Andrew at Palm Beach.Mrs Peard, an interior designer who also holds a Certificate IV in Residential Drafting, created the concept for the home while Mr Peard, a builder, put it all together. 39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.The two-year project was not all plain sailing, however, as they manoeuvred their way around the existing house, literally building the new dwelling on top of it. “We built the back of the block first and lived in the master and third bedroom and also in the little old house that was already there,” Mrs Peard, who runs Colour And Detail interior design, said. 39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.“This is what we do — we obviously love it,” she said.“What we have achieved out of this house is pretty amazing.“It’s coastal with a modern twist. We kept the ceilings quite high to give it that feel, and it has a lot of character. The VJ boards we’ve used as a feature but not so much a coloured feature but a textured one. 39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.“Then we built the new roof over the existing home so we could live in it. We were able to do so because our ceilings are 4.5m high.

The solid timber floors are amazing, and the louvres are designed so a beautiful breeze flows through the house. “An L-shape design is meant to be one of the best for airflow and it worked out perfectly for this block which is triangular.” 39 Fourteenth Ave, Palm Beach.And if living in a building site for two years was hard enough, the couple were also raising their two children who at the time were five and two years old.

Too Much Sport

first_imgA couple of days ago, I talked about being a kid and enjoying the month of May. Today kids often do not have the chance to do this. If they are out for a spring sport, I can bet at least one coach is on their back about a fall or winter sport. The soccer coach wants them playing club soccer, the basketball coach wants them playing AAU basketball, and the football coach is screaming to get in the weight room. If I were running the IHSAA or any other state organization, I would ban this practice. I know one drawback of this, and that is a kid would probably pick one sport and not play year round. That is not what I want. I want the kid to be a kid and enjoy him/herself and have some fun. For 95+% of the kids, high school is their last chance at competitive team sports, so why the push for year-round participation in just one? I am sure the kid is the last one who wants this. A lot of the time, it is not the coach, either. It is the parent who thinks his kid is the next LeBron James or Serena Williams. The parent is doing most of the pushing. For every 50 kids participating in a sport this spring, one or two might star in college and only a few more than that can even make a college team. Put a limit on a sport in terms of a season length and ban out-of-season participation. Allow each sport some time in summer for open practice and go from there. I doubt if college sports or pro sports will stop as a result of this.last_img read more

Liverpool unhappy with England after Jordan Rossiter injured with Under-19s

first_imgLiverpool are less than impressed with England Under-19s’ handling of Jordan Rossiter after the midfielder returned from international duty injured. Press Association Rossiter’s injury rules him out of Saturday’s trip to Tottenham for Klopp’s first match in charge denies him the chance to stake his claim immediately under the new manager. Gomez’s treatment by England Under-21s has also been questioned after coach Gareth Southgate on Thursday expressed his shock at the severity of the injury – the defender is likely to be sidelined for nine months – having said immediately after the match they thought the teenager was okay and it was “nothing too serious”. Klopp also has captain Jordan Henderson (foot), Christian Benteke (hamstring) and Roberto Firmino (back) unavailable at the moment as he finalises preparations for his Premier League debut. The Football Association declined to comment on individual players’ injuries. center_img In another blow to new manager Jurgen Klopp, who has seen striker Danny Ings and defender Joe Gomez ruled out for several months with knee ligament problems in the last couple of days, the 18-year-old has reported back to the Reds’ Melwood training ground with a hamstring injury. Press Association Sport understands the club are unhappy the youngster, who has made three first-team appearances this season and been involved in the squad throughout, played the full 90 minutes for England Under-19s three times in the space of just five days – the only outfield player to do so. last_img read more
