Wenger targeting deadline day move for injured Giroud replacement

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is targeting a transfer deadline day swoop for another top striker to replace injured frontman Olivier Giroud.The north London club confirmed this week that France international Giroud is set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on a broken ankle, and is unlikely to return to action before the New Year.That leaves £35million summer signing Alexis Sanchez plus youngsters Yaya Sanogo and Joel Campbell at Wenger’s disposal up front, though the back-up duo are still largely untried at the top level.The Gunners have been linked with a sensational late move for unsettled Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.And, asked if his priority ahead of Monday’s fast-approaching 11pm deadline is to strengthen his attacking options, Wenger admitted: “Yes, because we have a big injury there.“But we still have plenty of players on our bench with a lot of quality, today we had Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski, Tomas Rosicky, Calum Chambers and Joel Campbell.“We’re still working very hard but it doesn’t depend only on us, you need all three parties to agree.“We are open, we work on it, but let’s not fool ourselves; Man City lost against Stoke and had strikers, it’s not just about buying one player.“But we want to and we are open to it. The pressure to buy is always there, we have to live with that, we try our best.”The Gunners’ lack of flair in front of goal was evident as they could only manage a 1-1 draw against Premier League newcomers Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.Sanchez opened the scoring after 20 minutes though the Foxes immediately equalised through Leonardo Ulloa, and Wenger believes the injury to commanding centre-back Laurent Koscielny in the first-half had a lasting effect on the whole team.He added: “After the injury to Koscielny we lacked that bit of sharpness and creativity to transform our possession into goals.“We weren’t cautious enough at the end, we could have maybe lost the game because we wanted to win so much.“Having three away games in the last two weeks, at Besiktas, Everton and here at Leicester, you could see we were mentally a bit jaded.”last_img read more

Danny Murphy United were lucky against Young Boys

first_imgAccording to former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy, United’s 1-0 Champions League victory at Old Trafford against Young Boys was nothing more than a stroke of luck.Murphy was baffled why Jose Mourinho’s side lacked tempo and said it’s better they are in the competition playing ‘badly’ rather than getting knocked out early.In another underwhelming home performance on Tuesday, Marouane Fellaini scored in stoppage-time to help Manchester United win the crucial three points they needed to qualify for the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League.“You’re better being there and playing badly than playing well and not being there but it’s Manchester United football club and the level of the performance is not what the fans want to see,” Murphy told Sky Sports.“Young Boys were better in the final third and they could have beaten them. It was another poor performance but they’ve won.“He could argue that the win at Juventus gave them the chance to have an off day but it’s too many off days.“They’ve got so many tremendous players and I don’t know why they’re so lackluster. It was a lucky win.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“The best coaches I’ve played for were insistent on a level of performance because if that stays high, then wins generally come.“The games where they [Man Utd] lost at West Ham and Brighton were lackluster performances.“The game against Crystal Palace the other day, Wolves at home and tonight, they all lacked tempo.“I don’t think the players are going out there and not trying, but could it be fitness? Are they against the way Jose wants to play?“Subconsciously, if you’re going out not happy with the way you’re setting up, are you going to give it your best? There was just no urgency.”last_img read more

London tower block fire What we know

first_imgAt least 12 people were killed in a massive blaze that engulfed a London tower block on Wednesday, raising serious questions about fire safety in Britain’s housing blocks.Here is what we know so far:How many victims?The police have said at least 12 people were killed at Grenfell Tower in west London and they expect the number to rise as emergency workers make their way through the building.”Sadly I don’t anticipate that there will be further survivors,” Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Cundy said in a televised address.The London Ambulance Service said it had treated 69 patients, 18 of whom remained in critical condition by Wednesday afternoon.The 24-storey tower is home to between 600 and 800 residents and has one stairway through which people could escape, locals told AFP.London Mayor Sadiq Khan said firefighters were only able to reach the 12th floor of the 24-storey block at the height of the blaze.More than 200 firefighters were deployed to put out the fire. Some 100 medics tended the casualties.What happened?Fire services said they received the first call at 00:54 am on Wednesday (2354 GMT Tuesday) and were on scene at the Grenfell Tower public housing complex within six minutes.Witnesses reported the entire building was on fire by around 2:00 am (0100 GMT). Around an hour later the London Fire Brigade also tweeted that the whole building was in flames, starting from the second floor.Survivors said they saw the flames outside their windows, rising up the exterior of the building, which had recently been covered in cladding during a major refurbishment finished last year.”It appears that the external cladding has significantly contributed to the spread of fire,” said Angus Law from the BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.Where was the fire?Grenfell Tower is a concrete block built in 1974 in the working-class area of north Kensington in west London.The £8.7 million (9.9 million euro, $11 million) refurbishment of the block was completed last year and included new windows and heating system.The area neighbours the wealthy district of Notting Hill.What were residents’ concerns?Construction firm Rydon, which completed the refurbishment of the tower in 2016, said the work “met all required building control, fire regulation and health and safety standards”.David Collins, former chairman of the Grenfell Tower Residents’ Association, said the building’s management had failed to listen to residents’ calls for improvements on fire safety.”If the same concerns were had in a wealthy part of Kensington and Chelsea they would have got resolved, but here they didn’t get resolved,” Collins told AFP.”This is a multi-ethnic, multicultural, diverse community that just didn’t get served by the people representing them,” he said.Local residents had warned a year ago about a potential fire risk caused by rubbish being allowed to accumulate during the refurbishment.”This matter is of particular concern as there is only one entry and exit to Grenfell Tower during the improvement works,” read a blog post by the Grenfell Action Group.”The potential for a fire to break out in the communal area on the walkway does not bear thinking about as residents would be trapped in the building with no way out,” it said.Some residents said the official advice was that people should stay inside in the event of a fire.Khan said the advice would be looked into.”We can’t have is a situation (where) people’s safety is put at risk because of bad advice being given or if it is the case, as it’s been alleged, of tower blocks not being properly serviced and maintained,” he told the BBC.British Prime Minister Theresa May’s new chief of staff Gavin Barwell, a former housing minister, promised a review of building regulations covering fire safety following a fatal 2009 fire in another London local authority apartment block.The review has not been published.last_img read more
