Emery don’t connect with his players -Persie

first_imgThe visitors led twice before half-time to make it 2-1 before substitute Nicolas Pepe netted a brace of free kicks inside the final 13 minutes to earn the Gunners all three points.Speaking on BT Sport after the match, former Arsenal striker Van Persie suggested things hadn’t changed since he left the club in 2012.“I don’t think that Emery really connects with his players,” the Dutchman said. “I think they are still weak on set pieces, which was a problem at my time, to be honest.“But everyone should feel responsible. Arsenal lose 12 to 15 points per season by set pieces. That should stop. If you want to play for the first couple of places you have to sort it out, you have to find a way.“As a player you want to have that feeling, you have to sprint back, now I see a couple of players jogging back, and there’s danger there. I don’t feel that in the team.“If you have a very strong coach, and you are in midfield and you see danger somewhere, you sprint for your life, because you know if you don’t do it you get punished.”Van Persie also suggested that communication problems between Emery and his players may be at fault for their mixed performances so far this campaign.“I’ve had [Arsene] Wenger, Louis van Gaal, [Alex] Ferguson, I had so many coaches, and their main quality was to be clear,” the 36-year-old added.“If I’m really honest.someone sent me a video last week of [Emery] trying to explain something, and I couldn’t really figure out if he was saying, ‘calm, calm’ or ‘come, come.’“That is very important, you have to be clear, you have to be the leader and the leader needs to be clear towards his players.”Arsenal return to Premier League action on Sunday when they host Crystal Palace at the Emirates.0Shares0000(Visited 77 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Van Persie: I don’t think that Emery really connects with his players.

BREAKING NEWS: SHOCK FOR DONEGAL SUPPORTERS AS DANA GOES INTO MELTDOWN

first_imgDONEGAL supporters of Dana Rosemary Scallon in her bid to win the Presidency are in utter shock today – after she wept through the RTE Prime Time debate last night.In a shock development, she told Miriam O’Callaghan that allegations against her would be made in today’s newspapers.But nothing appeared in the first editions review on Vincent Browne’s TV show. And there was nothing on any website.In a strange intervention during the RTE debate, Dana said: “It has come to my attention that yet further allegations, this time of a most untrue, malicious and vile nature, have been levelled against a member of my family.”Reading from a prepared statement given to her by her spin-doctors – and shaking as she read it – she went on: “Let it be known that lawyers have already been instructed to forensically investigate a particular communication disseminating this vile and false accusation, which attempts to implicate me and destroy my good character.“We have now been advised that all possible lines of enquiry are being pursued with prosecution authorities in the United States. “May I assure the Irish people that I will leave no stone unturned to expose the malicious intent at the heart of these untrue allegations.”Presenter Miriam O’Callaghan challenged on the statement, saying she just couldn’t say that without elaborating on it, but Dana refused to do so.Last night one supporter of Dana in Donegal emailed us to say: “I’m voting for her and stand by her. Clearly the media has a problem with someone who stands up for Jesus.”BREAKING NEWS: SHOCK FOR DONEGAL SUPPORTERS AS DANA GOES INTO MELTDOWN was last modified: October 13th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cisco deal brings TV-via-Net closer

The deal also opens up opportunities for Cisco’s Linksys home networking division. Its products could be made to work seamlessly with Scientific-Atlanta boxes to distribute television throughout the home and combine them with other Internet-protocol technologies, including phone service. “Today’s announcement represents much more than an exciting opportunity for Cisco,” said John Chambers, Cisco’s chief executive officer. “It literally completes a large part of our quadruple play as data, voice, video and mobility converge.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN JOSE – Betting that video will drive the future of networking, Cisco Systems Inc. agreed Friday to buy cable television technology company Scientific-Atlanta Inc. in a $6.9 billion deal that would create a one-stop shop for sending TV over the Internet. The acquisition is expected to help fuel the revolution in how TV is distributed and watched – a change that’s accelerating as telephone companies barge into the domain of cable operators and begin offering programming over fiber-optic networks using the language of the Internet. It also fits Cisco’s strategy of expanding into technologies that are moving away from their own networks to the standards-based Internet – a shift that creates an opportunity to increase revenue with new business and enhance sales its traditional routers and switches that direct data over the Internet. “Over the next two or three years, we are going to see a dramatic change in the landscape, where video-over-broadband infrastructure becomes the centerpiece of investments that service providers make and the expectations that consumers have,” said Mike Volpi, a Cisco senior vice president. last_img read more

Women’s Soccer Blanks Omaha, 2-0

first_img Live Stats at Western Illinois 9/24/2017 – 1 p.m. Drake (6-3-1) recorded its fourth shutout of the season as Omaha (2-6-1) failed to score in its fifth match of the year. The Bulldogs avenged a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Mavericks in 2015, and now holds a slight advantage at 3-2 in the all-time series. Rodgers has scored a team-leading four goals this season, and 31 in her decorated career. She needs just one more goal to equal the all-time mark held by Andrea Schmitz (2002-05), who had 32 goals in her outstanding career. ESPN3 Full Schedule Roster Watch Live Preview Next Game:center_img Drake senior goalkeeper Haley Morris (Clive, Iowa) tallied eight saves. The Bulldogs’ backline of Linda Fiorito (Overland Park, Kan.), Elaine Gorom (O’Fallon, Ill.), Kasey Hurt (Ankeny, Iowa) and Smith played great defense along with Morris as they each played the entire match on a warm, muggy night at Cownie. Omaha garnered just three shots in the second half. Rodgers’ goal came in the 16th minute (16:43) off a header that she slipped past the Omaha keeper, Erin Bunker. Senior Ali Smith (Lenexa, Kan.) sent a long pass from near midfield that Rodgers went vertical for and got her head on the ball. Rodgers has scored one goal in three of the past four matches for Drake, which is 3-0-1 during that span. “We have always enjoyed our Kick Cancer game,” said Drake head coach Lindsey Horner. “When you’re competing at a high-level it easy to take things like your health for granted.  Tonight, is important to raise awareness, but this event also serves as a reminder that it’s a privilege to play collegiately.” DES MOINES, Iowa – Redshirt senior Rebecca Rodgers (Peotone, Ill.) and freshman Hannah Bormann (Amana, Iowa) scored goals for the Drake University women’s soccer team in a 2-0 shutout over Omaha on Wednesday night at the Cownie Soccer Complex in the program’s annual “Kick Cancer” game. Bormann’s second career goal, sealed it for the Bulldogs, as it came in the 83rd minute (83:46). Senior Rachel Wanninger (Johnston, Iowa) had her shot blocked by Bunker deep in the box, but Wanninger gathered the ball and sent a pass to an unmarked Bormann at the top of the box, who calmly blasted it in the back of the net far post. Bormann is coming off being named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week for the first time on Monday. “We actually scored our first goal against the run of play,” Horner said. “We have let some of our standards slip a bit and in doing so let Omaha stay in the game. In the second half, we worked like we were playing against a league opponent, put in hard tackles and made the game easier for our back five that were once again phenomenal tonight. If we keep the standard of the second half and become a bit more clinical in the box I think we can be a really exciting team to watch.” Following Wednesday’s game, Drake visits Western Illinois on Sept. 24 for a 1 p.m. matinee contest. This week is the final non-conference action for the Bulldogs who will start MVC play at home against league newcomer Valparaiso on Sept. 30. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
