Arsenal should hire ex-Spurs boss Pochettino, says Keown

I think it’s a hugely significant sacking.”You’re going to have managers now looking over their shoulders.”I know the poor record he has recently, I know it all but I still would have given him another chance.”I don’t like the way Tottenham have done it.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTO CATCH A CHEATFurious wife beats and strips her husband’s suspected mistress in the street – but crowd does nothingWORMS FEARSHas your child got threadworms?

first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED and Tottenham are set to battle it out for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic, according to reports.The Catalan giants are prepared to cash in on the Croatian veteran this summer to raise funds of their own.2 Ivan Rakitic is set to spark a transfer scramble this summerCredit: Getty Images – GettyRakitic, 32, has just one year remaining on his deal at the Nou Camp.MAN UTD NEWS LIVE: Follow for the latest United newsHis availability is set to spark a transfer scramble with clubs across Europe including Juventus, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid set to pursue a deal.But according to Mundo Deportivo, the Premier League pair believe they can lure Rakitic to England.The coronavirus pandemic will leave Barca cash-strapped this summer meaning they will be forced to sell a number of stars to bring in players of their own.Both United and Tottenham are in the market for a new midfielder and know they won’t need to break the bank to sign Rakitic.The Red Devils attempted to land Rakitic in January but the move was blocked because his wife Raquel wanted to remain in Barcelona.He is a serial winner having won ten major pieces of silverware throughout an illustrious career.Rakitic has made it no secret of his desire to rejoin Sevilla whom he left in 2014.But the Spanish side are unlikely to compete financially after the player admitted he is still waiting for them to make contact.2most 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 InstagramPicturedAN 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’ExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himNICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidsREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’Last month he said: “I have a special affection for Seville, but directly for the city.

Titans desperate to rediscover winning feeling

first_imgThe only team to have defeated the two Telstra Premiership front-runners in the Storm and Sharks – not to mention being a well-executed kick from knocking off fourth-placed Brisbane – the Titans are in danger of vying for the wooden spoon rather than the top eight should they lose a fifth game on the trot this week.It was only a month ago that Gold Coast had pushed into the top eight on the back of three consecutive wins and while that proved they could match it with the top teams, the way back is through energy and effort.Last year the Titans went through a six-week period late in the season where they only lost one game to put themselves in finals reckoning and halfback Ashley Taylor says they can do it again if they get back to executing the basics for 80 minutes.”It was pretty nitty-gritty,” Taylor said of the three-game winning streak. “The boys put their hand up, we were running the ball hard, we were playing hard and there was lots of energy on the field and that’s what we need to get back to. Everyone competing on the field and everyone putting in 100 per cent effort.”I’m sure the boys are doing that but we just need to focus on it a lot more.”That’s what we need in our game, to get the little things right and once those little things come back and everyone’s on the same page we’ve already shown that we can beat the top teams and we can be competitive.”It’s just a matter of getting back to that and getting some wins.”The Titans’ task will be made easier on Friday night with Origin representatives Jarryd Hayne, Jarrod Wallace and Nathan Peats all expected to back up along with the return of Tyrone Roberts from a shoulder injury to partner Taylor in the halves.Another bonus for the Titans is the ankle injury that will keep James Tedesco from lining up for the Tigers and like Taylor, coach Neil Henry believes a return to the competitiveness they displayed in 2016 will help to turn things around.”If we can remember what got us some wins last year and what was keeping us in games we’ll give ourselves a good chance to win games,” Henry said.”We got on a bit of a run and won a few games in a row and we were able to get there. We’ll need to do the same again. We can’t control the injuries we’ve had, we can only react to it and play some decent footy.”The reality is that we haven’t got too long. We need to get over this game first. The focus is on getting a result in Campbelltown and if we get that done we can shift it to a home game against the Dragons. It really needs to be a game at a time.”Taylor was solely responsible for the execution of the game-plan in a decimated team against the Rabbitohs last week and while the return of other key members of the spine is welcome, Henry still wants his young half in control much of the time.”I think we do still need him to be dominant,” Henry said. “He’s our main kicker and warming to that role as a young, developing half.”He’s got a good kicking game, he needs to command the ball on both sides and he’s a good runner of the ball as well.” Photo by: Nathan Hopkins/NRL Photos (Titans halfback Ash Taylor will again be called on to lead his side’s attack against Wests Tigers).last_img read more

Highlands call on PNG Games Secretariat to extend deadline

first_imgWhile the accreditation forms were delivered a week later than schedule, with less than 90 days to go for the PNG Games in Kimbe later this year, the Secretariat has also raised serious concerns on funding and delay in venue preparations.During the executives meeting for the lead up to the Games at the Molka Lodge in Minj over the weekend, provincial sports coordinators said the venue preparations in Kimbe were behind schedule.Compounded with the fact that provinces are yet to receive sponsorships from their Provincial Governments and local MPs, the Secretariat said things looked bleak and expected delays in the whole program.The Highlands is the first to have an established secretariat outside of the PNG Sports Foundations.

first_imgMetropolitan, divine treasure. Atlético’s stadium is a fortin this season, something almost similar to the previous ones. Part of the fans understood that the rojiblanco team could accuse leaving a magical stadium like Vicente Calderón to go to a new venue, which could lack the passion that was in the Manzanares.
