Emery discusses Arsenals fast start against Liverpool

first_imgArsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed his delight at his team’s fast start to the game against Liverpool last weekend.One criticism leveled at the Gunners of late has been their slow start to football games and, since that was addressed during the club’s 2-2 draw against Jurgen Klopp’s side and Emery wants that to continue this weekend and beyond.“Against Liverpool I think we had more in the 90 minutes of the game,” he said, according to BT Sport.“Our idea is to repeat matches with this pace over 90 minutes. It’s not easy because other teams have their moments in the matches. But our idea is to continue improving this.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It is about the progress in the team. The progress is about continuing to create confidence and creating also tactically different ways to improve.”“The first thing we must do to improve is to continue with our way, with our positioning and our aggressiveness, with the ball and without the ball, and then taking confidence to do these things better every match.”“The confidence can come, firstly, from winning matches and then also from when you feel it on the pitch you have a capacity to battle against teams with the potential of (a team like) Liverpool.”last_img read more

Stepney believed Gordon Banks was a gentleman

first_imgThe former England national team player talked how he missed Banks in the 1970 World Cup last match and the kind of person he was.The England national team was knocked out of the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico by West Germany.That day, goalkeeper Gordon Banks did not play as he was sick in his hotel room.“The day of the quarter-final we went for breakfast, then for a walk. The game was at midday, it was 100 degrees, it was the turn of Peter Bonetti [Chelsea goalkeeper] to be the substitute goalkeeper, not mine, and when Alf [Ramsey] named the team he named Gordon and that seemed to be it,” former Three Lions footballer Alex Stepney told The Guardian.“The FIFA rules of those times were that if you weren’t involved you had to go and sit in the stand. So I went back to my room to get my camera and that’s when I found that Gordon was bad and being sick in the toilet.”“I became a sub, Peter Bonetti was now selected. Yet when I went back to my room after the match Gordon thought we’d won because we were 2-0 up [Banks was watching a delayed television broadcast],” he explained.“I had to tell him the bad news. I held up my fingers to indicate the score [2-3] and he just couldn’t believe it. I think it made him worse!”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Don’t forget in those days we didn’t have goalkeeper coaches,” he remembered.“Basically what you did you did for yourself and when I worked with him we expressed ideas between us – that’s what it was all about.”“He inspired me so much regarding how I played: I’d like to think I wasn’t a flashy keeper, either. I learned a lot from him, working and playing against him,” Stepney continued.“Gordon was such a gentleman and an absolute one-off. His death is a very sad loss to the game.”“He is England’s best-ever goalkeeper – he won the World Cup, as simple as that, and 53 years on he’s still the only keeper who has done that,” he said.“At the end of the day I had Gordon Banks in front of me regarding England and you cannot argue with that.”last_img read more
