AFC Bournemouth appoint new manager

first_imgRelatedPosts Townsend: Eze’s an incredible talent Newcastle linked with Jordon Ibe EPL: Bournemouth, Leicester in fight to finish AFC Bournemouth has appointed Jason Tindall as the club’s new manager.Tindall, who has served the Cherries for more than 18 years as a player and coach, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Vitality Stadium and will be attempting to lead the club back to the Premier League. The 42-year-old first arrived in Dorset in July 1998 and went on to make 199 appearances in all competitions across two playing spells.He was later appointed assistant manager to Jimmy Quinn in September 2008 before continuing in the same role under Eddie Howe a few months later.And Tindall was to be Howe’s assistant from that point on, helping guide AFC Bournemouth to three promotions in six seasons, culminating in a five-year stay in the Premier League.“It’s an honour and a privilege to be the manager of such a great football club,” Tindall told afcbTV.“Given the success of the club over the last 12 years, with Eddie in charge and me by his side, I’m not going to come in and rip everything up and start again. I would be a fool to do that. “But I’m my own person with my own ideas and I will be looking to implement them as soon as we get back on the training ground.“I know the Championship is a very tough league but my aim is to get this club back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.“This is a challenge that I feel I’m ready for and one I’m looking forward to.”AFC Bournemouth owner Maxim Demin said: “Jason has played a huge role in this club’s success over the last decade and fully deserves to step up and become our new manager.“While his knowledge of and passion for the club is unquestionable, he was the standout candidate for this role. “He has huge enthusiasm for the project and great ideas to get the best out of a talented squad.“This is the start of a new era for this football club and I’m excited about what the future holds.”—Tags: AFC BournemouthJason TindallVitality Stadiumlast_img read more

Barry targets unbeaten run-in

first_img Five wins and a draw make Roberto Martinez’s side the form team in the Premier League alongside Arsenal. Sunday’s victory over Manchester United saw them creep back into the top 10 and games remain against teams below them in the form of Aston Villa, West Ham and Sunderland before the final-day visit of Tottenham. “The way they performed at Wembley (beating Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final) was superb. “But Tim knows Saturday will be a massive game for them because they are not safe at the minute either. “It’s such a big game for them and the pressure’s off us but we still think we’ve got a lot to prove this season.” Last season they won eight of their last 11 matches on the way to a fifth-placed finish and Barry sees no reason why their current run should not continue. “It is a mini-target for us to try stay unbeaten until the end of the season,” he said. “We are on a good run at the moment so being around the training ground it is a much better place to be. “You can never put your finger on one aspect (responsible for their turnaround in form) but it is just the way it goes, if you are winning games everyone seems to be playing better. “These sort of things come when you are winning games, if you are losing games you are not playing well so it is always much easier when you are in a team winning games.” On Saturday Everton head to Barry’s former club Aston Villa, who despite reaching the FA Cup final still have to safeguard their top-flight future. Their fortunes have also recently turned around and Barry believes that is due to new manager Tim Sherwood. “I think he deserves a lot of credit. There was lot of pressure on him when he went in with the position they were in,” Barry told evertontv. Press Association Everton midfielder Gareth Barry believes the challenge for the players is to remain unbeaten until the end of the season. last_img read more

Liverpool should be awarded title if season is cancelled

first_img(REUTERS) – MANCHESTER City midfielder, Ilkay Gundogan, says it would only be “fair” for rivals Liverpool to be awarded the English Premier League trophy if the season cannot be completed due to the coronavirus outbreak.Gundogan told German broadcaster ZDF that Liverpool deserved to be crowned champions given their massive 25-point lead over second-placed City, the current holders, which has left them just two wins away from the title.“For me, that would be okay, yes,” Gundogan said, on being asked whether Liverpool should be handed their first top-flight title for 30 years should the season not be completed.“You have to be fair as a sportsperson,” he added, while conceding that it was a difficult decision for football authorities given the impact that the cancellation of the season would have at both ends of the table.“There are different opinions. For clubs who have had a very good season, it obviously wouldn’t be nice if it was cancelled now,” he said.“On the other hand, for clubs who aren’t doing as well and are maybe in the relegation places, an abandonment would obviously suit them.”The Premier League season has been suspended until April 30, but it is looking increasingly likely that the date may have to be pushed back further.German international Gundogan also said he would be open to taking a pay-cut should English clubs follow the likes of Juventus and Borussia Dortmund in asking their players to accept reduced wages so non-playing staff can be paid.“Of course I think it’s okay, that goes without saying, (but) there’s been no discussion in England yet,” he said.“Perhaps that’s because the English clubs are a bit financially stronger than the clubs in Germany at the moment.“I don’t know who has the final say in that decision. On the other hand, if a player says, ‘no, I don’t want that, I worked hard for it, I get my salary’, then it can go in the opposite direction.“For me personally, it would be okay but, to be honest, you have to be tolerant and if there are players who are against that, then that’s also an acceptable situation.”last_img read more

#OleOut trends as Man Utd fans demand sacking of manager after loss to Arsenal

first_imgThe change in the opposite dugout and the results being seen by Arsenal’s fans is irking the red half of ManchesterJust going back to yesterday’s result, look at what Arteta has done in a space of a couple weeks with that Arsenal side and then there’s people that want to talk to me about trusting the process with Ole. 🤣 #OleOut— 🔰ForeverUtd🔰 (@ForeverUtd4) January 2, 2020At the same time last season, under Ole’s predecessor, Jose Mourinho, United seemed to be better off, at least looking at the statsMan united Last Season:First 21 matchesPoints: 38Goals scored: 38Goals conceded: 32Pos: 6thThis season (matchweek 21)Points: 31Goals scored: 32Goals conceded: 25Pos: 5thAbeg Show me where we improved.

(@andrewkabuura) January 1, 2020No need for too many wordsIt’s time #OleOut— Sally Brown🌷 (@officielsalome) January 1, 2020 Man Utd fans were less than pleased with Wednesday’s 2-0 loss to struggling Arsenal.Goals from Nicholas Pepe and Sokratis ensured that Man Utd’s mini-recovery was just that, and sent the Gunners into the top half of the Premier League.Man Utd however, who were without French playmaker, Paul Pogba, struggled to create anything against an Arsenal team that was beaten by Chelsea at the Emirates only days earlier.Fans of the Red Devils were upset about the result and took to social media during the game and after the final whistle to vent their spleen.While some focused on the result, others had a bone to pick with the performance of certain players.Most people, however, targetted the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, criticising his, lineup, substitutions and other tactical decisions.The hashtag, #OleOut, like it has several times this season, trended on Twitter with Man Utd fans calling for his exit.Man United are fifth, five points behind Chelsea who are in the final Champions League spot and 24 points behind fierce rivals and league leaders Liverpool.The loss to Arsenal was United’s sixth of the season and their second in the last five games.Here’s some of what Man United fans have been saying on social media:  Ole’s demeanour in his post-match interview was a major point of criticism for United fans, who could understand why their gaffer seemed so chipper.last_img read more

Kotoko unveils plans for next season

first_imgYouth development and supporters mobilization will feature prominently in management’s plans for the 2013/2014 season, asantekotokosc.com has gathered.Aside the mainstream resolve to successfully defend the Premier League title, participate in the CAF Champions League, continue the various construction projects at Adako Jachie, management’s prime focus will be to build and develop appropriate structures for youth football while identifying and implementing workable plans to utilize the club’s huge support base.This came to light following a meeting in Kumasi, between Executive Chairman, Dr. K. K. Sarpong and members of the communication team, headed by Dr. Ernest Opoku.Briefing Kotoko Express , Dr. Opoku observed that youth development was critical to the future of Kotoko and at the time that the Kotoko-Sunderland partnership was focusing more on raising a functional academy side, management could not have chosen a better plan.“This is something that sits at the heart of our agreement with Sunderland. We are making great strides there but a lot still has to be done in that area. It is one critical area hence the need to pay utmost attention to it” he stated.Details of what will be done to give proper meaning to Kotoko’s youth development programme next season are yet to emerge. The plan is however being touted within close management circles as “comprehensive, forward-looking and practical”. On supporters’ mobilisation, Kotoko Express gathered that the situation where not much, in terms of organization and revenue, were being gleaned from the huge support base is a source of worry to management. There are clear signs that funds from gate proceeds continue to decline.While a part of the supporters’ mobilisation programme will tackle matters related to the Circles and how to make them active and relevant, another part will look at drafting young people in schools and colleges into the club’s supporters’ fold like it has been done in Sunyani.“We will be getting to the schools, colleges and such places before targeting our communities in a bid to mobilise more support” said Kotoko’s spokesman.last_img read more

Adrian Peterson says he, others will ‘without a doubt’ kneel during national anthem

first_imgFormer 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first player to kneel during the anthem in protest against police brutality and racial injustice, doing so in 2016. Kaepernick opted out of his contract the following year. He remains out of the NFL.Saints quarterback Drew Brees said last week that players who knelt during the anthem were “disrespecting the flag.” Those comments which sparked fierce backlash and led to multiple apologies by Brees.MORE: Ben Carson has a solution for NFL players who protest — just love AmericaPeterson — a former teammate of Brees in New Orleans and a former star in Minnesota with the Vikings — told the Houston Chronicle on Friday: “Just four years ago, you’re seeing [Colin] Kaepernick taking a knee, and now we’re all getting ready to take a knee together going into this season, without a doubt.” Redskins running back Adrian Peterson says he will “without a doubt” take a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice following George Floyd’s death.There have been nationwide protests in the United States after Floyd — a 46-year-old black man — died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25. Former officer Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on Floyd’s neck during an arrest. Floyd was crying out for help as he was handcuffed and pinned to the ground. “Yeah, without a doubt, without a doubt,” the 2012 NFL MVP replied when asked if he personally planned to take a knee.”We’ve got to put the effort in as a group collectively,” Peterson said. “Are they going to try to punish us all? If not, playing football is going to help us save lives and change things, then that’s what it needs to be.”Peterson, who moved to Washington from the Cardinals in 2018, rushed for 898 yards and five touchdowns last season.last_img read more

Bayern blitz leaves Wenger with nowhere to hide

first_imgWith their Premier League title hopes in tatters and even a top four finish far from guaranteed, Wenger’s 184th Champions League match as Arsenal boss may well prove to be his last as speculation grows that he will terminate his 21-year reign at the end of a wretched season.Having restored Alexis Sanchez to his team despite reports the Arsenal forward wants to leave after being dropped for Saturday’s loss at Liverpool, it was a sign of the misery to come for Wenger when Danny Welbeck was taken ill in the pre-match warm-up, forcing Olivier Giroud into the line-up.Arsenal would have to make history to go through as no team in the Champions League era had overturned a four-goal deficit and many Gunners fans gave them no chance judging by the swathes of empty red seats around the Emirates.– Embarrassing –Even the stay-aways wouldn’t have predicted such an embarrassing loss when Walcott struck in the 20th minute.Taking possession wide on the right flank, Walcott advanced unchecked by the ponderous Bayern defence and, from an acute angle, he unloaded a powerful strike that flashed over Manuel Neuer’s unconvincing attempted save and into the roof of the net.Walcott had a penalty appeal turned down after Xabi Alonso caught the winger and he was close to a second goal when he surged onto Shkodran Mustafi’s pass before firing into the side-netting.But Giroud, unmarked eight yards out, wastefully headed over from Aaron Ramsey’s cross early in the second half, and that would prove Arsenal’s final chance.When Lewandowski got behind Koscielny in the 55th minute, the Arsenal defender’s panicked response was to trip the Pole, conceding a penalty and earning himself a red card.Lewandowski picked himself up to send David Ospina the wrong way with a clinical spot-kick and the Emirates immediately fell into anarchy.Faced with an inevitable exit, Wenger retreated to the dug out as insults rained down on him from frustrated fans, and his players waved the white flag as well.Fittingly, Bayern’s second goal in the 68th minute came about after Sanchez was caught in possession on the edge of his own penalty area, with Robben gleefully picking the Chilean’s pocket before slotting past Ospina.That opened the floodgates and Costa curled home in the 78th minute before Vidal punished woeful defending to make it four two minutes later.With Arsenal’s players just waiting to be put out of their misery, Vidal waltzed through to make it five in the 85th minute and Wenger’s agony was complete. London, United Kingdom | AFP | Bayern Munich condemned Arsene Wenger to more humiliation as 10-man Arsenal were eliminated from the Champions League with a crushing 5-1 defeat amid furious protests against the beleaguered Gunners boss on Tuesday.Aiming to stage an incredible recovery from a 5-1 first leg deficit, Wenger’s side briefly looked capable of a famous escape act when Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the first half at the Emirates Stadium.But any hopes Wenger’s recent problems would be erased in historic fashion were brutally dashed by Robert Lewandowski’s second half penalty and Laurent Koscielny’s dismissal for conceding that spot-kick.Wenger cut a forlorn figure as Arjen Robben and Douglas Costa netted before Arturo Vidal’s double fired Bayern into the quarter-finals with a 10-2 aggregate victory.It was the first time Arsenal had conceded five at the Emirates and by the closing stages, there was a funereal atmosphere on an evening that started with Arsenal fans staging a protest march calling for Wenger to quit and ended with a chorus of boos and banners held up proclaiming: “Enough is enough – Wenger out”. Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img It was yet another chastening experience in the Champions League for Wenger, who has now seen Arsenal eliminated in the last 16 for seven successive seasons.last_img read more
