Share on Pinterest Australia sport Support The Guardian The AFL will review its controversial rules around high bumps at the end of the season amid furore over the Ryan Burton incident. AFL football operations manager Steve Hocking is adamant the right call was made on the Hawthorn defender but there have been shifts in bumps laws over the last few years and Hocking says the league will look at them again after the season. “That’s a longer-term conversation – of course we will,” he said on Tuesday.Match reviewer Michael Christian cleared Burton after his bump concussed North Melbourne utility Shaun Higgins on Sunday at Etihad Stadium. Higgins was hospitalised and needed surgery for a badly-cut lip. The bump is one of the game’s hottest topics, especially given concerns in international sport around concussion. Hocking said the feeling in the game is that the bump should be retained.The league’s ruling on Burton is that he executed properly and Higgins’ concussion happened because of secondary and accidental head contact. “No-one wants to see players concussed,” Hocking said. “But in this case, in our view, going through all of that, Burton has executed the bump and it’s accidental.”There are a number of provisions in the tribunal guidelines around high bumps and Hocking said Burton was in the clear with most of them. “In our view, he’s ticked all the right boxes,” Hocking said. “We’re comfortable on that adjudication, on those guidelines, it’s landed where it’s needed to.“We’re not here to suspend guys for accidents. If we suspend him for that, we’re throwing the bump out of the game and I’m not sure that we should.”Hocking also defended the decision to fine Hawthorn’s Brownlow medal fancy Tom Mitchell for misconduct after he elbowed Todd Goldstein in the head. In round four, Richmond’s Jack Graham received a one-game ban for a similar offence.Had Mitchell been suspended, he would be ineligible for the Brownlow. But Hocking said unlike the Graham incident, the umpire closest to Mitchell strongly felt there was not enough force to warrant a striking charge.

Frank Kaminsky SI 6Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky is currently manning Sports Illustrated’s Twitter account to field questions from fans, and the results have not disappointed. Fans have asked everything from his favorite teams and musicians, to his underwear preferences, to the classic Reddit question about duck-related preferences when it comes to a fight. We already knew that Kaminsky was the best. This just confirms it. Whichever team lands Kaminsky in the draft is getting one of the most entertaining guys available…and a pretty good center as well.
CANTON, OH – AUGUST 01: Drew Lock #3 of the Denver Broncos throws a pass in the first half of a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons at Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium on August 1, 2019 in Canton, Ohio. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)On Thursday night, the Denver Broncos took on the Atlanta Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game.It’s the first time football has graced the television sets of America since the New England Patriots took down the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.Without the starters on the field the level of play was less than ideal, but at least football is back.During the game, former Missouri star quarterback Drew Lock saw his first NFL action. It was a struggle for the former Tigers starter who took over for Kevin Hogan in the first half. Lock completed 7-of-11 passes for just 34 yards and took two sacks in the process.After the game, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio had a brutally honest assessment of his rookie quarterback’s play.“I was hoping for more, but not surprised,” Fangio said.Vic Fangio On Drew Lock: “I was hoping for more but not surprised.” #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) August 2, 2019Denver drafted Lock with the No. 42 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Lock slid out of the first round, but the Broncos traded up to draft him in the second, showing confidence in the young quarterback.He showed some promise on Thursday night, but looked very much like a rookie as well.He’ll likely backup Joe Flacco for most of the upcoming season.

We didn’t capitalise on the tough moments, we can’t place the blame on the boys for today, many of them are playing their 3rd or 4th game,” Rajasthan skipper Ajinkya Rahane said after the loss against Delhi.”We need to learn from this and come back well next season,” Rahane added.The @DelhiCapitals have finished their league games and are now on the No.2 position in the Points Table. pic.twitter.com/lyrHnOmcJ1IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 4, 2019Rahane opted to praise RR’s youngsters who have shined on the big stage of the IPL.”Riyan Parag has been exceptional, so has Shreyas Gopal – he always thinks about taking wickets,” Rahane said.Parag, on Saturday, scored a fifty to become the youngest to do so at the age of 17 years 175 days. Parag was the lone fighter even as his senior teammates crashed and burned around him.Rajasthan had a disastrous start to their innings as they were reduced to 30/4 at the end of the powerplay over.#FunFactYoungest players to score a Vivo @IPL 50Riyan Parag – 17y 175dSanju Samson 18y 169dPrithvi Shaw 18y 169dRishabh Pant 18y 237dAll 4 of them are playing today. #DCvRR #RR #HallaBol pic.twitter.com/qOcZZ2VrMgadvertisementRajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) May 4, 2019Ishant Sharma removed Rahane for just 2 runs and then also cleaned up Liam Livingstone for 14. Sanju Samson was a victim to an unnecessary mix up with Mahipal Lomror, who himself fell to Ishant.Parag and Gopal put up a 27-run fifth-wicket stand before Amit Mishra almost took a hat-trick, only to be refused by a dropped catch from Trent Boult.Rajasthan managed to put up 115/9 from their quota of 20 overs.”We play the game with love and passion, it’s all about attitude. We didn’t bat well, 140-150 would have been challenging,” Rahane said blasting his batsmen.With little to nothing to play with, the RR bowlers fought hard but a Rishabh Pant fifty made sure that Delhi Capitals reached the target with 5 wickets and 23 balls to spare.M A T C H W I N N E R #DCvRR #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals #IPL #IPL2019 @RishabPant777 pic.twitter.com/qTg25uxcDDDelhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) May 4, 2019Ish Sodhi, who finished with figures of 3/26, got the wickets of both the Delhi openers in consecutive balls but failed to take a hat-trick.Rahane praised his bowlers even after the loss, saying, “The bowlers gave it all, showed a lot of character. Ish (Sodhi), playing his second game, KG (Krishnappa Gowtham) – all of them did well.”Speaking about his own form during the season, he said that captaincy did not affect him and he has always given his best.”Personally, my season was good, I was confident about batting.

zoom Latvian owner and operator of medium and handy size tankers Latvian Shipping Company (Latvijas Kuģniecība) plans to dry dock eight of its vessels at Riga dockyard until July, to reduce fuel consumption and upgrade communication equipment.While in dry dock, the vessels will undergo technical repairs, get a fresh coat of paint, and new satellite equipment. The company estimates that over USD 3.6 million will be invested into the repair works of the ships. Two of the company’s medium range tankers have already undergone the dry docking repairs, with six more to go until July.During the repair works, the ships will be lifted out of the water utilizing a floating dry dock in order to access the entire hull. The body of the vessel will be painted with an anti-fouling and finish coating in order to assist with reducing fuel consumption.Satellite antennas and the communication systems will be installed on the ships thereby ensuring continuous internet connections, improving communication and data exchange between the ship and its managers in Riga whilst the vessel is at sea.The company also plans to install an additional hydraulic tugger-winch on the forecastle deck to comply with the latest Single Point Mooring regulations and, a special aft towing strong-point to be installed on the poop deck to comply with Norwegian oil-terminal requirements.
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to file its response on a batch of pleas of over two dozen trainee IAS and IPS officers of the 2018 batch, who have sought parity in the government’s cadre allocation scheme with 20 of their colleagues, who were granted relief by the top court last month.The Supreme Court had, on May 17, granted relief to 20 trainee IAS and IPS officers, who had challenged the government’s cadre allocation process for the 2018 batch, by asking the Centre to accommodate them by increasing one post each in the state cadres of their preference this year. Also Read – Cong may promise farm loan waiver in HaryanaAfter the May 17 order, now two sets of 2018-batch trainee IAS and IPS officers have moved the apex court — one group of 20 candidates has challenged the Delhi High Court verdict that had quashed the entire cadre allocation process and the other group of five officers has filed a fresh writ petition seeking parity with 20 of their colleagues. Several other trainee IAS and IPS officers have also sought impleadment in these two petitions. A vacation bench of justices Deepak Gupta and Surya Kant said prima facie it did not agree with the high court’s view. Also Read – Modi formed OBC commission which earlier govts didn’t do: Shah”This is our tentative view that prima facie we do not agree with the high court order and the government should not have conceded in this manner,” the bench said as it asked Additional Solicitor General Vikramjeet Banerjee to file the Centre’s affidavit in the matter. It listed the matter after two weeks before a regular bench. Senior advocate Sanjay Hegde and advocate Shashank Ratnoo, appearing for the candidates who have challenged the Delhi High Court verdict, said the government could not give relief to only a select lot of trainee officers. Senior advocate Meenakshi Arora, appearing for the five trainee IAS and IPS officers who have sought parity with 20 of their colleagues, said these trainee officers also had equal rights and that they be permitted to provide cadre preferences afresh. The trainee officers are aggrieved with the Cadre Allocation Policy for All India Services, which was introduced by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) on September 5, 2017. According to the 2017 office memorandum on cadre allocation policy, the states and the joint cadres were divided into five zones. According to the policy, the candidates were required to first give their choice in a descending order of preference from amongst various zones. Thereafter, they would indicate one preference of cadre from each preferred zone. The candidates would indicate their second cadre preference for every preferred zone thereafter. A similar process would continue till a preference for all cadres was indicated by the candidates. Cadre allocation for the 2018 batch was undertaken in terms of the Cadre Allocation Policy of 2017 and some persons, with a view to avoid some zones and cadres, had indicated a “no preference” for such zones and cadres.

India was one of the 24 countries that voted against Sri Lanka on human rights violations at the UNHRC meet in March last year. “We called on the Prime Minister and insisted that he support the resolution against Sri Lanka on war crimes. He promised to do so,” Narayanasamy said. The sentiments of Tamil people are running high after pictures of slain LTTE leader Prabakaran and his son Balachandran were released in the media recently, Narayanasamy said. India will vote in support of a US-backed resolution against Sri Lanka proposed to be moved before the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva next month, the Times of India qouted India’s Union minister in the Prime Minister’s Office V Narayansamy as saying.He said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has promised to support the resolution against Sri Lanka on war crimes and human rights violations at the UNHRC meeting. Narayanasamy said he along with MPs from Tamil Nadu recently called on the Prime Minister and asked him to extend support to the US-sponsored resolution for holding Sri Lanka responsible for war crimes and to vote against the island nation.
Madi Fuller is redefining the bro-code.The fourth-year Political Science student will leave no stereotype untouched when she presents her workshop on ‘The new MEN-tality’ at the Niagara Leadership Summit for Women at Brock University on Saturday.“From a young age, men are put in this masculinity box that tells them they need to be confident, aggressive and unemotional. Outside this box, we have women who think they have to be humble, passive and compassionate because being all of these other things aren’t for them, they’re only for men. That’s what I want to change,” she said.Hosted by the YWCA Niagara Region, this sold-out summit brings hundreds of experts, leaders and participants to Brock University each year to discuss the prominent issues surrounding women in leadership, as well as empowering women to be strong leaders.“On the surface, the summit is about women, but we also need to have these conversations about the role men play,” Fuller said.Her workshop builds off the foundations of feminism – advocating for equal rights for both men and women and highlighting the idea that helping women also means helping men.“We need to re-train what we think we know about how men and women should act. Men should be allowed to cry and women should be allowed to be confident without being called something derogatory. We need to challenge what we see as just ‘being a girl or boy,’” she said.“If women are thinking about growing their leadership style, I definitely recommend surrounding yourself with women leaders. Speak up for what you believe in because you will empower both women and men in great ways.”Shirley Cheechoo, Brock University’s Chancellor and a prominent female leader, will also be at the summit as one of the keynote speakers.

In their first Big Ten game of the season, the Ohio State Buckeyes answered the call.OSU (5-0, 1-0) took down Wisconsin (3-2, 1-1) 31-24, thanks in part to a huge game from quarterback Braxton Miller.In his first action since spraining the MCL in his left knee against San Diego State, the junior helped the Buckeyes get off to a fast start Saturday night. Following a punt by the Badgers on the opening drive of the game, Miller connected with junior wide receiver Evan Spencer on a 25-yard scoring strike that gave OSU the lead 7-0.“I think he (Miler) played very well,” OSU coach Urban Meyer said. “Braxton did have a heck of a day.”Wisconsin would respond, though, as redshirt-senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis caught a 36-yard touchdown pass from Badger redshirt-sophomore quarterback Joel Stave.Miller completed his second touchdown pass of the night on OSU’s next drive, this one to junior wide receiver Devin Smith. The 26-yard reception was Smith’s fifth scoring grab of 2013.Following a 45-yard field goal from OSU’s senior kicker Drew Basil, Stave led the Badgers on a 76-yard scoring drive, finishing it with an 11-yard pass to junior tight end Sam Arneson to cut the lead to 17-14 with less than two minutes left until half.The OSU offense rushed down the field on the next drive, and Miller threw his third touchdown pass in the first half to senior wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown, giving the Buckeyes a 24-14 lead at halftime.“I felt good,” Miller said after the game. “My legs felt good energy-wise. I wasn’t out of shape. I felt good.”After another Miller-Brown connection that extended the lead to 31-14, Wisconsin’s senior running back James White scampered 17 yards to get the Badgers within 10 points again.The two teams exchanged punts until Badger redshirt-junior kicker Kyle French made a 42-yard field goal.OSU recovered the ensuing onside kick, but were forced to punt after a three and out. Wisconsin’s last ditch effort fell short, though, and the Buckeyes ran out the clock to secure the seven-point victory.Miller finished the day 17-25 passing for 198 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran the ball 22 times for 83 yards.Abbrederis had a huge game for the Badgers, finishing with 10 catches for 207 yards and a touchdown.The game was not a total victory for OSU, as senior safety broke his left ankle on Wisconsin’s last drive of the game.The Buckeyes travel to Northwestern (4-0) next Saturday for their second night game in a row. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m.
Troubled Tahera Diamond Corp intends to satisfy the alternative information guidelines recommended by Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) Policy 57-603 and Canadian Securities Administrators Staff Notice 57-301. The company requested from the OSC, that a management cease trade order (MCTO) related to its securities be imposed against some or all persons who have been directors, officers or insiders of the company since September 30, 2007. After consideration of Tahera’s request, the OSC indicated it would not issue a MCTO at this point in time. The OSC requested that Tahera provide bi-weekly up-dates by way of news release, in accordance with the alterative information guidelines under Policy 57-603 and Staff Notice 57-301. The following constitutes the first bi-weekly up-date of the company under the alternative information guidelines.The total number of dry tonnes processed during the fourth quarter of 2007 was 155,000 t at an average grade of 0.79 ct/t, resulting in production of 122,500 ct compared with 127,500 t at an average grade of 0.78 ct/t for output of 99,300 ct for the third quarter of 2007. The value of production for the fourth quarter of 2007, based on values of the Government Diamond Valuators, was $11.6 million, compared with $8.4 million in the third quarter of 2007. The cash operating cost related to the production of these goods was C$18.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2007 compared with C$17.9 million for the third quarter. These costs include all mining, processing and related overhead charges for the quarter. Certain of the cash items consumed during these periods were purchased and paid for in a prior period.The company has held two valuations for goods produced in 2008. Production from January 1, 2008 to February 5, 2008 yielded 45,026 ct at an average value of $95.32/ct for a total value of $4.3 million. Production from February 6, 2008 to March 12, 2008 included two parcels of goods. Normal run of mine production totalled 31,271 ct at an average value of $106.96/ct and a batch test of the F1N lobe yielded 2,768 ct at an average value of $87.80/ct. The combined total for the two parcels from the March valuation was 34,039 ct at an average value of $105.40/ct for total value of $3.6 million.As previously reported, mining was suspended at the Jericho mine on February 6, 2008, to conserve cash and fuel inventory while restructuring efforts continued. Processing of ore is now expected to continue until the end of the third week of April 2008. All mining contractors have now demobilisd their equipment, supplies, and personnel.

Source: Danny LawsonLenihan may not remember the glory days at Ewood Park but today’s fixture will certainly give him a good idea of what he’s missing out on.United’s star-studded squad, the most expensively-assembled group of football players in the world, might not be winning titles with the regularity of the ’90s but they still carry top billing, particularly in this part of England.And it’s surely as good a time as any to be playing Mourinho’s charges as United’s schedule becomes particularly hectic; the clash at Ewood Park being sandwiched by the two legs of their Europa League tie against St Etienne, and the Portuguese will surely also have one eye on next weekend’s League Cup final against Southampton.Four big games in 11 days is enough to stretch any squad, even one with such an embarrassment of riches, and while Mourinho has vowed to play a full-strength side against Blackburn, it remains to be seen if he is true to his word.Blackburn fans have been starved of Premier League football for almost five years so tickets for today’s blockbuster at the 31,000-capacity stadium are understandably scarce, which means Lenihan will be playing in front of almost 20,000 more people than he’s become used to.Today’s game may give Lenihan a glimpse of Blackburn’s glorious past but the former Ireland U21 skipper also knows that a good performance could give Owen Coyle’s side some valuable confidence as they head into the final 11 weeks of their Championship season.“The fans haven’t been in the Premier League for a while,” Lenihan explains.“We played West Ham last year and they kind of gave us a bit of a thumping [5-1 in the FA Cup fifth round].To have Premier League teams come to Ewood Park, especially for the fans, it gives the club a bit of a lift and a bit of a break from the league, and fingers crossed we can put in a good performance, and you never know with a bit of luck on the day we could turn them over.“We know it’s probably going to be one of the most difficult games we play, if not the most difficult game we play, all season.”Dunboyne native Lenihan, who cites Roy Keane as his childhood hero, has established himself as a key figure in the Rovers dressing room, notably at centre-half, rather than his previous defensive central midfield berth.Lenihan has featured in 28 of Blackburn’s 31 league games this season, missing two of those fixtures through suspension, and he admits his shock at how quickly the stats are adding up.“I was surprised, I made my 50th Championship appearance a few weeks back, it’s just come around so fast.“I’m still only young, I’m still only learning the game. I don’t know how many games I’ve played at centre-half but I feel like I’m still learning every game, every new opposition I’m playing, and every different player I’m playing against.“I’m gradually getting to grips with the different positioning, the tactical awareness of the game, I just want to keep learning and get better with every game.“It’s great to play so many games but where we are in the division, we’re not doing too great, so the main thing is I try to help the team to win games, that’s my main objective.” Darragh Lenihan leads out the Ireland U21s for a Uefa Championship qualifying round clash against Italy in March 2016. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOBlackburn has been an unsettled place to say the least in recent seasons; Coyle is the sixth manager in charge of the first team since Lenihan arrived from Belverdere in 2011.Coyle arrived last June, filling the void left by Paul Lambert who left as he felt the club was “going in a different direction” to him.Former Bolton boss Coyle’s tenure got off to the worst possible start; five defeats and two draws from their opening seven fixtures left them with serious ground to make up with the season not even six weeks old.“We had a terrible start, we were getting beaten but we weren’t even getting close to being in contention to winning games,” recalls Lenihan, whose older brother Donal is a corner-forward and free-taker with Meath’s Gaelic footballers.“Obviously with the new gaffer coming in over the summer there was a huge turnover of players.“It does take time, every manager will say the same thing, it takes time for players to gel.We feel now that after January, we probably didn’t do much business, but fingers crossed we can get a few more signings, get a few good results from now until the end of the season and we’ll be able to push up the table.”They have performed in patches, and largely eliminated the heavy defeats that were becoming worryingly frequent at the start of the season, but Blackburn are still struggling to string a decent run of results together.A heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on St Valentine’s night was particularly painful, and that had nothing to do with Lenihan being touch-and-go for the fixture due to a bout of food poisoning two days previously.Trailing 2-1, and having been denied an equaliser on numerous occasion by impressive Ireland international stopper Keiren Westwood, Blackburn then felt they twice had the ball legitimately over the line but neither attempt was allowed to stand.The first, a fizzing, long-range Marvin Emnes effort, appeared to bounce over the line after striking the underside of the crossbar, while the second effort, a smart take-down and finish by Hope Akpan, was ruled out by referee Scott Duncan for handball.Things went from bad to worse for Rovers as Akpan was then shown a straight red card for pushing the referee in protest at his decision, and the midfielder has since been charged by the English Football Association, and the club also charged for “failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion”. Source: officialswfc/YouTube“Over time we’ve got a bit closer and we’ve been unlucky.“Like the game against Sheffield Wednesday, we had a couple of goals disallowed.There was one ball that went over the line from Marvin Emnes’s shot, it was nearly a foot over the line, and then Hope Akpan got a controversial sending off and we had two other chances before that to equalise.“We’re creating chances. We’re doing well against the top teams. We beat Newcastle away in St James’ Park, we drew twice with Huddersfield, so we are competing with all the top teams, it’s just about putting together more consistent performances to get the results.”A victory today could be just the antidote to Rovers’ ailments. A United fan he may be, but Lenihan would love nothing more than to send Mourinho’s men on their 45-minute trip back down the M61 with one less trophy on their radar.– First published 08.00, 19 FebruaryThe42 is on Instagram!

I used to be a steadfast supporter of burial. Until one day I decided cremation sounded like a nice option—my ashes strewn across my adopted country of Scotland.Now I think recomposition may be the best bet.The practice of human composting—converting remains into soil that can be returned to loved ones—may soon be available to folks in Washington.“People from all over the state who wrote to me are very excited about the prospect of becoming a tree or having a different alternative for themselves,” Sen. Jamie Pedersen (D), sponsor of a bill to expand the options for disposing of human remains, told NBC News.Unlike burial, which drains chemicals into the ground, or cremation, which releases carbon dioxide into the air, recomposting is a more environmentally friendly choice.And, at $5,500 a pop, it’s also cheaper than traditional burial, which, according to the National Funeral Directors Association, can cost more than $7,000.Pedersen plans to introduce the bill when Washington’s legislative session begins this month.If passed, it would make Washington the 17th state to allow alkaline hydrolysis, which uses lye and heat to dispose of human and animal remains.The idea of composting human remains came from Katrina Spade, a Seattle-based designer who began chasing the idea in 2013.When a friend introduced her to the farming custom of composting livestock after they die (“mortality composting”), “it was like a lightbulb went off,” she said in a statement to NBC News.“I started to envision a system that uses the same principles as mortality composting … that would be meaningful and appropriate for human beings,” she said.The process involves placing unembalmed human remains in a 5-by-10-foot cylindrical vessel, atop a bed of organic material like wood chips, alfalfa, and straw.Air is periodically pulled into the container, providing oxygen to speed up microbial activity, NBC News reported. Within about a month, the remains are reduced to a cubic yard of compost that can be used to grow new plants.An earlier version of Pedersen’s bill—which included alkaline hydrolysis but not recomposition—failed in Washington in 2017.More on Geek.com:Ensure Your Legacy by Pressing Cremains Into a Vinyl RecordBios Incube Grows Trees From Human CremainsCDC: U.S. Life Expectancy Still on the Decline

Liverpool midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri revealed that their 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town gave manager Jurgen Klopp plenty of reasons to get wound upShaqiri assisted Mohamed Salah’s 24th-minute goal at the John Smith Stadium to earn Liverpool all three points and end their four-game winless run in all competitions.But Shaqiri, who made only his second Premier League start for the Reds, confessed that Klopp was far from pleased with what he saw in the game.“He wants the best from you and always demands that you give 100 per cent,” said Shaqiri, according to Metro.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“He is very emotional. If he sees something that is not 100 per cent normal, he will shout – and he did!“That’s normal. Everything was not perfect like he wanted it to be. In the end, we won the game and that was the most important thing. But we have to analyse what was good and what was not good.”Liverpool will next take on Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday, where they hope to recover from their 1-0 defeat to Napoli last time out in Group C.
For the former Gunners midfielder, the English Premier League team is wasting its opportunities by not signing anybody during the transfer window.Arsenal has not spent a dime during the January transfer window in the English Premier League.But the team might need a player or two, as they are currently in the sixth position of the table with 47 points 15 points behind leaders Liverpool.For former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Petit, Arsenal not getting any new footballers during the January transfer market window is a wasted opportunity.“The frustration level must be very high for Emery, as in only his second transfer window as Arsenal manager he was told he cannot sign anybody,” Petit was quoted by Sky Sports.“You look at the money Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City spend and unless you join them and put the cash on the table to compete for the best players, you are going nowhere.”Not the end to the weekend we were all hoping for 😔But, there’s still another 13 @PremierLeague games to go – let’s dust ourselves down, regroup and we’ll go again at Huddersfield 👊#WeAreTheArsenal 🔴 pic.twitter.com/gTSzRMuDks— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 3, 2019Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Tottenham are not spending money but they are in the position Arsenal were in a few years ago, building a stadium, but there is no excuse for Arsenal now,” he complained.“If you sack Arsene Wenger and then say to the guy who replaces him ‘you have no money to spend on new players’, I would ask; what was the point of sacking Wenger in the first place?”“Defensively, Arsenal have not been good enough this season, so I was surprised they did not try to sign defenders in January. But the problems they have will not be solved by signing a player or two,” he continued.“Clearly, the defense is a problem. The better teams are getting through them far too easily, and when I hear Emery say he is happy with his defense and he does not need new players in these positions, I’m pretty sure he does not believe this.”💥 B A N G 💥Well done to @LacazetteAlex – you’ve voted his fine finish against @ChelseaFC as our January Goal of the Month 💫 pic.twitter.com/YKedat9Wfx— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 5, 2019
