I am not impressed by Arsenal under Arteta – Thierry Henry

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has expressed doubt that the club is heading in the right direction under Mikel Arteta. Henry was in the stands at the Emirates, as the Gunners beat Tottenham in the North London Derby. But the 44-year-old then watched Arteta’s men struggle to claim a point against Brighton a week later. That draw saw Arsenal drop back below Spurs on the Premier League table, into the bottom half. “I don’t know if things are going in the right direction. I watched the Brighton game. Did you watch it? “I’ve seen us beating Norwich before, winning at Burnley, beating Tottenham at home – because we always beat Tottenham at home. “I was more than happy when we beat Tottenham as we were on a good run but I was waiting to see a performance, away from home, again...

Blind reveals Man Utd’s biggest problem under Solskjaer this season

The former Netherlands international, Danny Blind, has revealed Manchester United’s biggest problem this season under their manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Blind, who is currently Louis van Gaal’s assistant with the Dutch national team, said Man United’s major problem under Solskjaer is that they struggle to dominate their opponents. According to him, the Red Devils have been struck by the lack of organisation, especially in an attacking sense. “What is the identity of this Manchester United team? What is his plan? It’s exactly what’s missing with Solskjaer,” Blind was quoted by Metro UK as saying. “There isn’t a tactical plan. His team aren’t able to put pressure on their opponents like Manchester City. It doesn’t always have to be full pressing but we don’t see any of it – e...

“I was happier when I was poor” Akon insists after he was called out for comment blaming Michael K Williams’ death on wealth

Akon has defended himself after he received backlash for suggesting that poor people have much easier lives than the rich and famous. After the death of his friend, Michael K Wiliams, Akon told TMZ that that actor's death proves the rich and famous struggle more than the poor . In a more recent interview with TMZ, he addressed the criticisms he received for his statement that "more money" equals "more problems". Akon said: “It’s not really more so a walk back, but what I do want to express is that sometimes when comments like that are made—I always speak according to what I’m personally going through myself. "Nobody can sit there and tell me I didn’t go through poverty. "I’m having more problems successfully dealing with all that comes w...

Start showing your worth’ – Tim Sherwood warns two Chelsea players

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Tim Sherwood, has warned Chelsea stars Timo Werner and Saul Niguez to start showing their worth at Stamford Bridge, or else they will be left out from Thomas Tuchel’s squad. Sherwood gave the warning ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday evening. He expects Werner to ‘struggle’ this season and says Niguez, who failed to impress in his Chelsea debut against Aston Villa last week, cannot afford a slow start to his career at the Blues. “Everyone thought that Timo Werner and Kai Havertz would be nailed on starters for Chelsea because of the German connection,” Sherwood told Premier League Productions. “But I think Werner is going to struggle.

Sit-at-home is against Igbo interest – Former Governor of Enugu state, Chimaroke Nnamani

Former Governor of Enugu state, Chimaroke Nnamani has said that the sit-at-home order instituted by proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and observed in south-east states on Mondays, is against Igbo interest. The Senator representing Enugu East in a statement released on Sunday September 12, said IPOB’s order has negatively affected the economy and social life in the south-east.

“More money, more problems” Akon says Micheal K Williams’ death proves the rich and famous struggle more than the poor

Akon says the death of his good friend, Michael K. Williams, proves the rich and famous struggle more than the poor. The singer said the actor, who was found dead at home from an apparent drug overdose, is the latest example of how the "facade of success" can send celebrities into a tailspin.

Conte agrees on terms with Arsenal to replace Arteta

Arsenal have agreed terms in principle with Antonio Conte, as Mikel Arteta continues to struggle this season, according to Todo Fichajes. The Gunners are bottom of the Premier League after three fixtures, having not won a game or scored a single goal. While sporting director Edu and the rest of the Arsenal hierarchy have showed faith in Arteta, it is believed he is walking a tightrope. And Arsenal are already putting together plans to replace Arteta, should they decide to terminate his contract in the coming weeks. Conte would surely be the number one preference, as he is available since leaving Inter Milan. The Italian has already turned down Arsenal rivals Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The former winger says the Manchester City star is another playmaker who does not fit the Three Lions mould Jack Grealish will struggle to become England's version of Zinedine Zidane or Gheorghe Hagi says Chris Waddle, because the Manchester City star falls into the same trap that has swallowed up playmakers before him. Calls for a man who is now the most expensive player in British transfer history became the subject of public interest during Euro 2020. Gareth Southgate oversaw a run to the final, but Grealish was largely restricted to a bit-part role off the bench and Waddle fears a £100 million ($138m) talent could go the same way as Paul Merson and Matt Le Tissier before him

Police Officer Filmed Kneeling on Head of Black man

A UK Police officer is currently facing queries at the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) over a stop-and-search incident in which he was seen kneeling on the head of a black man.
